In the news today Jan 31

first_imgFive stories in the news for Thursday, Jan. 31———MINORITY NDP GOVERNMENT WINS KEY B.C. BYELECTIONThe New Democrats won a crucial provincial byelection in British Columbia on Wednesday that allows Premier John Horgan’s minority government to maintain its grip on power after facing a spirited campaign from the Opposition Liberals. With the win, the NDP has 41 seats in the legislature and continues to hold power with the support of three Green party members in the house. The Liberals have 42 seats and there is one Independent, who serves as legislature Speaker. With almost all the votes counted, New Democrat Sheila Malcolmson had an almost 1,900 vote lead over B.C. Liberal Tony Harris.———HUMBOLDT FAMILIES GRIEVE AS SENTENCING NEARS ENDAfter three days of giving heart-wrenching victim impact statements, families of the Humboldt Broncos are hoping to see an end to the court process. Jaskirat Singh Sidhu, who is 30 and from Calgary, has pleaded guilty to 29 counts of dangerous driving for causing the crash last April that killed 16 people and injured 13 others. Court has heard that Sidhu blew through a stop sign at a rural intersection and the bus driver had no chance of avoiding a collision. There were 90 victim impact statements read at the hearing, and final sentencing arguments are scheduled for today.———ALBERTA EASING CUTS TO OIL PRODUCTIONAlberta is easing mandatory production cuts as the price of oil increases, but the industry says the tactic won’t solve the underlying problem — a lack of adequate pipeline capacity. Premier Rachel Notley said Wednesday that the temporary cuts are working, but she agrees more pipelines are the answer and until that happens more oil will be shipped by rail. Notley thanked companies for working with the government to protect jobs and the economy. Last month, the province ordered production of raw crude oil and bitumen to be reduced by 325,000 barrels per day — almost nine per cent of production.———TRANSIT OFFICER SHOT IN SURRY, B.C. The RCMP asked residents of a neighbourhood in Surrey, B.C., to lock their doors and turn on their outdoor lights Wednesday night as they searched for a suspect in the shooting of a transit officer.

Wrong to say outsiders get stepmotherly treatment Nawazuddin

first_imgMumbai: Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui finds it unfair when people say that only star kids get work in the film industry as he believes if one has talent, work will eventually follow. For the longest time, there has been an ongoing nepotism debate in the industry, kick-started by actor Kangana Ranaut, who said star children get preferential treatment in Bollywood. When asked if he feels people from non-film family background find it harder to make it, Nawazuddin told reporters, “The good thing about the industry is that if you have the talent, then sooner or later people see it. Also Read – ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ has James Cameron’s fingerprints all over it: Arnold Schwarzenegger “It isn’t that any person walking on the street can say they are not getting work. It takes time. If you have it on you, no one can stop you.” The actor said today there are lots of avenues for people to show their talent, including the digital medium. “We can’t say we are getting step-motherly treatment and no one is giving us work. It isn’t like that. There is a new wave of actors today working in web series and films because they have the talent. If you have the talent, you will get work eventually.” He was speaking at the launch of the book “The Stranger in Me” Tuesday.last_img read more

Adolphus Washington doing good things at new position for Ohio State football

Then-sophomore defensive lineman Adolphus Washington (92) gets up after tackling an opposing player during the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl Jan. 3 at Sun Life Stadium. OSU lost, 40-35.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorAll it takes to end a career early is an injury.Even if the injury itself isn’t of a significant nature, the possibility remains that the player who steps in as a replacement can do such a good job that the original starter loses his place forever.For junior defensive lineman Adolphus Washington, that possibility became all too real for the briefest of moments last season. After injuring his groin against San Diego State Sept. 7, Washington watched then-freshman Joey Bosa come in and claim the starting defensive end position, opposite then-sophomore Noah Spence.But a late season switch saw Washington take up a position on the interior of the line, something that could take a career that was once hanging by a thread and turn it into something completely different.Now with Washington “inside for good,” he said he has been improving this offseason with the different style of play on the inside.“I’ve been doing real good with it this spring,” Washington said Thursday. “Especially going up against guys like (redshirt-sophomore offensive lineman) Pat Elflein and (redshirt-junior offensive lineman) Tommy Brown. If I can do it against them, I know I can do it against pretty much anybody.”New defensive line coach Larry Johnson said Washington has the right skill set to be successful as an interior lineman.“You always want a three-tackler, a guy that’s going to get a lot of one-on-ones and have an ability to rush the passer,” Johnson said Thursday. “He’s 285, 290 and that’s big enough to play inside. So you have to take a skilled guy who’s rushed on the edge and play inside and play as a guard position, it’s going to give you a different edge on the inside. That’s what I’m excited about. He’s got great hips, he can rush the passer, so there should be some great things coming from him.”But it’s not just the skill set Washington brings that has Johnson raving, it’s also the drive Washington shows on the practice field.“He’s worked really hard,” Johnson said. “He’s had a really good … spring ball. He really has. We moved him inside because of the pass rush ability, he’s playing the run real nice and then he’s doing a great job for us.”Last season, in limited time, Washington recorded 36 tackles, to go along with four tackles for a loss and two sacks.Even though he played on the interior later in the year after Bosa became established as the defensive end starter, Washington said he was uneasy when practice first started, but that things have improved.“At first I was kind of nervous and scared about it. But now that I got a hold of it, it’s whatever. I am just going to go out there and play,” Washington said.He added that sometimes having to face multiple blockers at once — compared to the one he would face at end more often than not — is what really made him nervous.“The double teams. I used to watch … (senior defensive lineman) Michael Bennett used to tell me about them and he used to be like ‘You just have to get your pads low and fly off the ball,’” Washington said. “So I am like, ‘I can do that’ if that’s all it takes. I can just do that.”Johnson said facing the double teams won’t be a problem for Washington, as long as he pays attention and learns from his coaches.“Talk technique to him. Show him how to fit the double teams, and he’s doing a great job for us so far in spring ball, doing that and as he does it, confidence will come in the run game,” Johnson said. “I’ve been really excited for all these guys, Adolphus has done a really good job for us.”Washington is likely set to have his second chance to start on the interior of the line for the Buckeyes — after starting the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl against Clemson — when OSU opens its season Aug. 30 against Navy.Kickoff is scheduled for noon at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. read more

Golem Arcana is a mobileinfused tabletop board game seeking cash on Kickstarter

first_imgTabletop miniature games can be loads of fun, but there’s a high barrier to entry. You usually have to paint figures by hand. Then there are the rules, which often confuse beginners with esoteric stat modifiers and character skills. Golem Arcana aims to be something different. This mobile-enhanced tabletop board game is looking for funding on Kickstarter to make these games more accessible and attractive to gamers.Golem Arcana comes from the team behind the previous Kickstarter success Shadowrun Returns, an RPG video game. There are four clans in the game, each with four unit models. All the models come pre-painted so they’ll look perfect. The Kickstarter campaign includes some stretch goals that will unlock additional models for the game.To make gameplay more inviting, the designers have created a special stylus with a microdot camera on one end. You touch the camera end of the stylus to the section of the model’s base that indicates the action you want to take. If you’re moving you tap on the square you’re going to. Attacking? Tap on the enemy unit. All this data is sent over Bluetooth 4.0 to a phone or tablet that tells you if moves are valid, and tracks stats and modifiers based on terrain and buffs. The other end of the stylus is also a regular capacitive stylus, which is neat.Golem Arcana has a rich story behind it, and you can learn about the world easily by hitting the info button on your stylus. It can pull up information on any object you scan and have it displayed on the mobile device. This digital approach to tabletop gameplay lets the developers roll out new stories and content very quickly and easily.The game just launched, and has already accumulated over $100,000 (as of this posting). It still has 34 days to reach $500,000. It seems almost certain Harebrained Schemes is going to blow past the goal. If you want in, $55-65 gets you the base game with 6 miniatures, a stylus, dice, and a set of terrain tiles. Higher tiers include more stuff, but you can also buy more items a la carte.last_img read more

28 injured after truck ploughs into New Orleans Mardi Gras parade

first_img A SUSPECTED DRUNK driver ploughed a pickup truck into a Mardi Gras parade Saturday in New Orleans, leaving 28 people injured, including children, officials said.“At this time it appears that it’s a subject who was highly intoxicated, who struck a number of vehicles and then veered off hitting a whole bunch of innocent people,” New Orleans Police Chief Michael Harrison told reporters.Seven of those injured declined to go to the hospital, an official at the press conference said.The age of the victims ranged from an approximately three- to four-year old child who was in stable condition, to people in their 30s or 40s, he added.According to Harrison the vehicle driver is under investigation for drunk driving “and of course hitting all the people who were injured.” Source: Gerald HerbertThe driver ploughed into the crowd just before 1am Sunday as spectators watched the Krewe of Endymion parade, which is part of the city’s famous Mardi Gras celebrations.New Orlean’s “Krewes” are the private organizations that lead parades and throw balls during the city’s Carnival season.“It’s very hard to protect against somebody that’s very intoxicated that runs through a crowd,” Mayor Mitch Landrieu told reporters, adding that barricades had been put in place.“People have to be responsible and they have to be thoughtful about what they do,” he said.Earlier in the day a man was wounded after a gun went off near the Krewe of Tucks parade elsewhere in town.

first_img Mar 12th 2019, 12:06 AM Image: Eamonn Farrell/RollingNews.ie Paschal Donohoe met KBC to ‘reassure’ the bank of support after the Strokestown eviction The bank was criticised for using private security agents to forcibly remove three siblings from their Roscommon home. By Peter Bodkin 30,065 Views Tuesday 12 Mar 2019, 12:05 AM https://jrnl.ie/4534430 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article No Comments Short URL Share1455 Tweet Email2 Image: Eamonn Farrell/RollingNews.ie FINANCE MINISTER PASCHAL Donohoe held a meeting with KBC to “reassure” the bank of the government’s support in the wake of the controversy surrounding the forced eviction of a Roscommon family in December.The mid-January meeting involved the head of the Belgian bank’s local operation, Wim Verbraeken, and its chairman, Luc Popelier.Internal Department of Finance records state the main purpose of the meeting was “to reassure KBC about our support for the bank in light of the recent difficulties it has experienced follow the attempted repossession” of the Strokestown property.The documents, obtained by TheJournal.ie, went on to note that KBC was an “important challenger bank” with an Irish market share of around 8% and more than 1,000 employees here.The meeting followed the forced eviction of the three McGann siblings from their Roscommon farm in December, an incident involving a series of violent scuffles that were captured on video.The case drew national media attention after private security guards employed by KBC were allegedly forced from the property by a group of masked men.  A screengrab of footage from the incident Source: The DemocratSpeaking pointsUnder a list of “suggested speaking points” for Donohoe in advance of the meeting, finance officials said the minister could “welcome the opportunity to discuss concerns that KBC may have” about repossession issues.“We fully accept that repossessions are part of the normal financial services landscape and that it must be possible to enforce security as a final resort when all else has failed,” the document said. The partially redacted records were released after a freedom of information request.In public comments after the eviction, senior government figures were more circumspect in showing support for the bank.Taoiseach Leo Varadkar told the Dáil the facts behind the eviction “seem to be about much more than an elderly farm family being evicted” and there had been years of debt, arrears and tax evasion involved in the case.“Nobody likes to see anyone being evicted in any circumstance. Nobody wants to see it happening, particularly in the run-up to Christmas. However, the High Court does not issue eviction orders lightly,” he said.However in response to Sinn Féin criticism that the eviction was “an ordeal of thuggery inflicted by a group of men acting on behalf of a financial institution while gardaí watched”, Varadkar added that there was a need to regulate private security firms used by banks to carry out evictions. The McGann family later said that the Taoiseach’s comments were “a deliberate attempt to deflect attention from some of the very serious issues relating to our eviction”.Two men have since been charged over the violent confrontations after guards occupying the site were attacked. A security dog had to be put down after suffering serious injuries during the incident, while the guards’ six vehicles were also set alight.The family, who were not involved in the attacks, subsequently returned to the home. One sibling, David McGann, has filed High Court proceedings against KBC claiming that the eviction was unlawful and the security firms allegedly involved had no authority to enter the property.The bank had earlier obtained a possession order against McGann’s brother, Anthony, in relation to a debt of more than €300,000. KBC lodged legal action against him in 2009 and court records show a repossession order was issued in 2013.The incident triggered anti-eviction protests in Strokestown, while three TDs and around a dozen supporters also ‘occupied’ a KBC branch in Dublin. Source: Mattie McGrathIn a statement, a spokesman for the Department of Finance said the discussions that took place at the meeting were confidential, however given its timing “the events in which the bank’s branches and agents came under physical attack were likely to be of particular concern to the bank”.“It would have been completely inappropriate for the department and the minister to ignore the incidents which took place or in any way to condone or appear to condone these incidents,” he added.“It was right and proper that this message should be clearly conveyed to KBC.” Comments are closed due to ongoing legal proceedings.last_img read more

Inside the amazing Spruce Goose at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum

first_img The Spruce Goose, SR-71, spaceplanes and MiGs at Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum Evergreen is no one-trick goose, er, pony. Immaculate aircraft from every decade of flight fill two massive hangars, plus several aircraft outside. In the shadow of the Goose is a PBY Catalina, one of the oldest airworthy DC-3s (that you can also go inside), several Cold War-era jets and more. Across the parking lot, past the theater building, is the museum’s collection of more modern aircraft: an SR-71 Blackbird, A-10 Warthog, MiG-23 and a multitude of helicopters. Going a bit higher and faster, the “space” part of the museum includes a Titan missile, X-38 experimental re-entry vehicle, and several replicas of Apollo-era landers and modules. 63 Photos It was 1942. The Second World War was raging. The US needed to get men and supplies across the Atlantic, a passage menaced by German U-boats. Famed shipwright Henry Kaiser had an idea, and he enlisted the help of legendary aircraft designer and business mogul Howard Hughes to bring it to fruition: an enormous flying cargo ship. The H-4 Hercules, aka the Spruce Goose, was born.Hughes would be accused of war profiteering, and, perhaps out of spite, finished and even flew the H-4. It flew once, and only for 26 seconds. Afterward it lived in a climate-controlled Long Beach hangar until Hughes’ death in 1976. In the ’90s, the H-4 made one last trip to its permanent home not far from Portland, Oregon, to the excellent Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum. The Spruce Goose is a marvel even now, over 70 years since its first, and last, flight.

The H-4 dominates the expansive hangar while other aircraft sit under its 321-foot (98-meter) wings, looking almost like toys.

White House To Withdraw Controversial Nominee For Top Environmental Post

first_img Share Anthony Behar/Bloomberg via Getty ImagesUpdated 8:38 a.m. ET A White House official confirms with NPR that Kathleen Hartnett White’s controversial nomination to head the Council on Environmental Quality is being withdrawn.The Washington Post first reported the decision to drop Hartnett White’s nomination. Citing anonymous administration officials, the Post says Harnett’s nomination couldn’t win enough favorable support, “with some Senate Republicans raising questions about her expertise.”Hartnett White has drawn criticism for her comments on climate change. The former Texas regulator has a history of questioning established science that man-made greenhouse gases are a major contributor to climate change.As the Post noted, when Hartnett White testified before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, “she said that while humans probably contribute to current warming, ‘the extent to which, I think, is very uncertain.’ “Hartnett White suggested in 2014 that fossil fuels helped lead to the end of slavery because they “dissolved the economic justification” for it. The next year she wrote that carbon dioxide is “the gas of life on this planet.”“Hartnett White suggested that climate regulation is a conspiracy pushed by communists,” Mose Buchele of member station KUT reported in November. He said that she has “called renewable energy unreliable and parasitic.”While promoting a book she co-wrote in 2016, Fueling Freedom: Exposing the Mad War on Energy, Hartnett White praised fossil fuel energy for doing “work that we otherwise would have to do [ourselves].”Though she worked as a top regulator heading the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, Jim Marston of the Environmental Defense Fund told Buchele that Hartnett White stands out for an “unusual” opposition to regulations.But Buchele says Hartnett White told him years before that “she supported regulations, just not at the expense of growth and that industry is actually essential to a healthy environment.”The CEQ post is responsible for coordinating across agencies to develop environmental policy. Hartnett White’s nomination expired last year after Democratic opposition stalled her confirmation. Before reports on Saturday that Hartnett White would no longer be considered for the role, Trump re-nominated her last month to restart the process for Senate confirmation.Copyright 2018 NPR.

US Supreme Court Rejects Challenge To Texas Lethal Injection Drugs

first_imgShelby Knowles for The Texas TribuneThe U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., on June 7, 2017.The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a Texas case Monday that questioned the constitutionality of the state’s execution process.The lawsuit dated back to 2013, when multiple death row inmates sued the Texas prison system, claiming its lethal injection protocol is unconstitutional in part based on the drugs used in executions. Texas uses pentobarbital compounded at a pharmacy in secret to put inmates to death. The inmates claimed in part that the lack of additional testing of the dose before an execution and the use of old drugs could cause them severe pain. In the last year, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice has seemingly pushed back the expiration dates on the compounded drug used in executions twice.Texas argued that the prisoners did not present an alternative option for use in executions and has only speculated that the drugs could cause pain. The case had gone back and forth in lower federal courts since then, and had largely been rejected by judges. Maurie Levin, a lawyer for the inmates, said after the decision that the relevance of the rejected litigation is limited to the drugs used when the lawsuit was filed in 2013 and Texas’ “insistence on dodging accountability and transparency.”“Texas’ current drug supply is so old using it to carry out executions amounts to scientific experimentation, on human beings,” she said in an email. “Unfortunately, I expect we will see increasingly problematic executions – which will only highlight, again, the consequences of Texas’s commitment to secrecy above all else.” Sharelast_img read more
