Evacuation ends and rail line reopens after Alberta train derailment

On

first_imgIRVINE, Alta. — Residents of a southern Alberta hamlet are back in their homes after an evacuation that followed a train derailment and chemical spill.Cypress County posted on its website Saturday that the spill, which Canadian Pacific Railway says happened Friday afternoon and involved styrene, has been contained and the evacuation was lifted late Friday night.A state of local emergency remains in effect remains in Cypress County, but the county says it’s due to a grass fire that’s been burning since last weekend, and not because of the derailment.An emailed update from the railway says the leaks on the two styrene cars were contained to their top valves, and that about eight litres of the substance leaked.The railway says the line reopened Saturday morning at 11 a.m. MT after track repairs and safety inspections were completed.An investigation into the cause is ongoing, and CP thanked firefighters, government and Red Cross officials for their support in responding to the derailment.“We also thank local residents for their patience and understanding and apologize for the inconvenience this incident has caused,” the railway said in its update.Styrene is a synthetic chemical used in the manufacture of rubber, plastic and fibreglass, and is flammable.A provincial government spokeswoman said Saturday that Alberta Environment and Parks is monitoring the company’s response.“The environmental impacts related to this incident are being observed and measured by our department,” Jess Sinclair said in an email.There was no report of any injuries.Part of the Trans-Canada Highway east of Medicine Hat, Alta., was ordered closed but was reopened in both directions Friday night. Witness Trehia Stevenson said the derailment included about a dozen rail cars, which she said did not appear to be tanker cars. She said it was right on the western edge of Irvine, less than a kilometre from homes.Stevenson said she could only see one car on fire, but there was a grass fire as well.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

In Another Rebuke to Trump US House Votes to Block Saudi

On

Rabat – The United States House of Representatives approved on Wednesday, July 17, three resolutions aimed at blocking Trump’s planned sale of guided missiles and other weapons to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Jordan.The approval of the new measures marks another political rebuke of Trump’s relationship with Saudi Arabia. The relationship has already raised severe concerns in the US Congress over human rights abuses, and the alarming death rates from the war in Yemen.Save the Children, a US-based international non-profit group, has estimated that 37 children a month have been killed in Yemen by foreign-made bombs. A Save the Children hospital in Yemen was hit by an air attack on March 2019, resulting in seven fatalities. Amid the escalating military tensions with Iran in May 2019, Trump tried to bypass Congress to complete the sale of more than eight billion dollars in weapons to Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Jordan. The US President’s arbitrary move disregarded the US law which stipulates that the Congress approve any major weapons sales. Many politicians view Trump’s claims of an emergency as exaggerated, highlighting that most of the weapons sales are transactions which could be postponed for months, even years.“There is no emergency. It’s phony. It’s made up. And it’s an abuse of the law,” said Representative Eliot Engel, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, on June 2019.  Donald Trump is expected to veto the new measures.arm salesHouse Majority Leader and Democrat, Steny Hoyer said the three specific resolutions were “most significant” because they would cancel contracts related to arms that could be used in the war in Yemen.The US President’s three contracts relate to plans by the US weapons-maker Raytheon to build a co-production plant in Saudi Arabia to assemble “Paveway” smart bombs; the type weapons that in 2018 destroyed a school bus in Yemen killing more than 40 boys. Raytheon’s agreement to co-produce hi-tech weapons in Saudi Arabia was reached in May 2017 during Trump’s visit to Riyadh.“It’s bad considering the Saudi war crimes in Yemen and the humanitarian crisis they are perpetuating through a blockade and airstrikes on so many civilian targets,” Hassan El-Tayyab, the co-director of Just Foreign Policy, a group in Washington advocating the end of Yemen’s war, told Al Jazeera.“It’s not a good thing for Yemen or the region or the national security interests of the US,” El-Tayyab added.It is not clear whether Congress has enough votes to override the President’s veto, but its opposition is a warning sign of potential trouble in the US-Saudi relationship if the impediment of business with the kingdom continues in the future.More efforts by the US HouseThe US House vote on Wednesday, July 17 is the latest effort made by the Congress to condemn the US military support of Saudi Arabia, since the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October 2018.Khashoggi was killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. According to reports, US intelligence agencies concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) ordered the murder, an allegation which Saudi Arabia denies.On Monday, July 15 the House approved a measure that would impose sanctions on officials involved in Khashoggi’s murder. In April 2019, Trump vetoed a measure that sought to end US military implication in the Saudi-UAE war in Yemen. Senators on the Foreign Relations Committee have also approved a bill that would close the loophole Trump had used for Saudi Arabia.House Representative and Democrat, Ilhan Omar has voiced destabilization and terrorism concerns on the matter.“Backing the Saudi government and the Emiratis is backing war crimes and crimes against humanity; providing them with arms is complicity,” Omar said.“The US relationship with Saudi Arabia in its current form is immoral,” she added.  R Clark Cooper’s support of Trump on the Saudi arms salesR Clarke Cooper, the State Department’s assistant secretary of state for political-military affairs, has said on multiple occasions that the arms sales are needed. He argues that this, combined with an escalation of US military posture in the Gulf region, was a necessity in countering increasing threats from Iran to Saudi Arabia and the UAE, as well as Americans in the region.  “These malign – even provocative actions mark a new evolution of the threat Iran poses to the security of hundreds of thousands of Americans who live and work in the Gulf states, and to the security of the region and our partners,” Cooper said before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on June 2019.Cooper faced hostile questioning from Democrats and some Republicans on the committee.“The arms sales you’re talking about are controversial. There is significant opposition in Congress. And rather than confront that, you go around it,” said Representative Brad Sherman, a Democrat. read more

UN bans two vendors following internal investigation

On

Responding to press questions, Michele Montas said the decision was made following consideration on Wednesday of several cases related to the conclusions reached through internal investigations by the UN Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) Procurement Task Force into the relationships between several vendors and a former UN official indicted by the US Southern District Attorney’s Office.Ms. Montas said that in light of the conclusions reached by the Procurement Task Force, the UN has decided to remove Cogim, S.p.A. and Avicos Insurance Company from the Vendor Database. She added that the UN has also prohibited the two companies from doing business with it as a result of inappropriate relationships between them and the indicted former UN official.Ms. Montas also said that based on a related investigation by the Procurement Task Force, the UN has decided to suspend the registered vendors Corimec Italiana S.p.A and Volga Dnepr Airlines and its subsidiary, Volga-Dnepr (Ireland) Ltd. from the Vendor Database in light of alleged inappropriate relationships between them and a former UN official.In September 2005, Vladimir Kuznetsov, the chairman of the UN’s Advisory Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions (ACABQ), was arrested by US officials. The Secretary-General waived his immunity and the UN cooperated with the US in connection with its inquiry.That case stemmed from another investigation by OIOS into then-UN Procurement Officer Alexander Yakovlev, who was accused of soliciting kickbacks by the Independent Inquiry Committee (IIC), which probed mismanagement in the UN’s Iraq Oil-for-Food programme. 16 March 2007Two vendors registered to sell goods to the United Nations – Cogim, S.p.A. and Avicos Insurance Company – have been removed from the Organization’s roster following an internal investigation, a spokesperson for the world body said today. read more

Seat allocation controversy has boosted Ryanairs annual revenue by at least £15m

On

first_imgThe ongoing furore over Ryanair’s seat allocation policy has coincided with millions more of the airline’s passengers paying up to £22 per return flight to reserve where they sit.The carrier has faced a barrage of criticism in recent weeks with travellers lining up to complain that they had been split up from their friends and family after refusing to pay the fee – despite cabin layouts on the airline’s website often showing rafts of unclaimed seats together. He said reserved seating was introduced in response to customer demand for passengers wishing to avoid the “free for all” for seats during boarding, and that the reasons many random allocated seats were in the middle of a row was because those who pay to select generally choose window or aisle seats.“I’ve flown in randomly allocated seats and had both window and aisle seats,” he said.The airline, which launched its Always Getting Better campaign in 2013 to refresh its image, is the largest carrier in Europe, by passenger numbers, and regularly reaffirms its commitment to ensuring high load factors drive fares down. Jacobs said fares are set to fall 7 per cent by March.This week Ryanair announced a drastic change to its carry-on luggage policy. From November, anyone who does not pay £10 per return flight for priority boarding now faces having their hand luggge placed in the hold. Passengers have also accused the airline of “punishing” those who do not pay for seat reservation by placing them in a middle seat. One story to emerge told how a party of 23 found themselves sat in a line across 23 rows. But Ryanair has repeatedly denied that its seating policy, or any computer algorithm that assigns seats, has changed, and reasons that the majority of reservations are for windows or aisles, leaving only middle seats free.But, while social media is awash will negative sentiment towards the airline, it would appear that the controversy has had a positive impact on Ryanair’s revenue. The fee to reserve a seat costs from £4 per return flight, up to £22 per return flight for extra leg room – and more customers than ever are paying it.Kenny Jacobs, the airline’s chief marketing officer, revealed to Telegraph Travel that since the start of the year, the percentage of Ryanair customers paying for seat reservations has risen from 40 per cent to half. Up to July this year, the airline has carried 73,870,000 people, so that equates to 7.4 million more passengers paying the fee – raising Ryanair’s annual revenue by at least £15m. “It’s settled down down and it’s working well,” said Jacobs. “We’ve seen more [passengers paying for seat reservations] – about 10 per cent more – if I go back to the start of the year it was about 40 per cent and now it’s about half.

No, we haven’t.”last_img read more

Comment la structure des poissons a donné naissance aux hanches des quadrupèdes

On

first_imgComment la structure des poissons a donné naissance aux hanches des quadrupèdesPubliant ses travaux dans la revue Evolution and Development, une équipe australo-suédoise a mis en évidence, dans la structure osseuse de certains poissons, des éléments clés ayant pu conduire, en peu d’étapes évolutives, aux prémices des hanches des tétrapodes.  Les tétrapodes (les animaux quadrupèdes) sont apparus voici environ 395 millions d’années et ont pu faire leurs premiers pas sur terre grâce à des hanches fortes connectées à la colonne vertébrale par un os iliaque. Des caractéristiques qui n’étaient pas présentes chez leurs ancêtres poissons… Mais celles-ci auraient pu apparaître plus ‘facilement’ qu’on ne le pensait jusqu’à présent.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?C’est du moins ce que suggère une étude réalisée par le Dr Catherine Boisvert, de l’Institut australien de médecine régénérative de l’Université Monash, le Pr Jean Joss de l’Université Macquarie (Australie) et le Pr Per Ahlberg de l’Université d’Uppsala (Suède). Pour en arriver là, ces chercheurs ont comparé le développement de la hanche – os et muscles – du dipneuste d’Australie (Neoceratodus forsteri), un poisson doté d’un poumon primitif, et de l’Axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum), un amphibien doté d’une queue. “Beaucoup de muscles considérés comme ‘nouveaux’ chez les tétrapodes ont évolué à partir de muscles existant déjà chez le dipneuste. Nous avons également trouvé les indices d’une voie nouvelle et plus simple par laquelle les structures squelettiques auraient [également] évolué”, a observé le Dr Boisvert. Les scientifiques ont constaté que les ischions (partie de l’os iliaque) auraient évolué par l’extension du pubis, déjà existant.Le raccordement à la colonne vertébrale aurait lui, évolué à partir d’un processus iliaque déjà présent chez le poisson. “La transition de l’océan à [l’environnement] terrestre a été un événement majeur dans l’évolution des animaux terrestres, y compris les humains, et [acquérir] une hanche modifiée a été une étape essentielle. Notre recherche montre que ce qui semblait au départ un grand changement de morphologie pourrait s’être fait avec relativement peu d’étapes de développement”, conclut ainsi le Dr Boisvert.Le 18 mai 2013 à 19:40 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Police Commissioner offended by Premiers remarks

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, July 21, 2016 – The Police Commissioner is taking exception to the strong words from Premier Rufus Ewing uttered last week; not only laying out the things which have been accomplished under his watch but clarifying that he and his officers are working hard to crack down on crime.  Commissioner James Smith, in commenting following a press conference by the premier last week and in the aftermath of a riotous outburst where some of his men were assaulted by Dominicans after a peace rally turned confrontational, the Commissioner disagrees with some statements and clarifies others including why it is taking so long, it seems to get CCTV.“I operate within the budget limit set by Government and seek to get the best value for Turks and Caicos. It is for that reason that I recommended to Government that we should continue to work with partners to install CCTV in the country and utilize our limited resources to purchase other much need equipment and support.” – Commissioner James SmithThe Premier was adamant with a message that went like this… if you need something Commissioner, tell me and we will get it.  But the Commissioner explains that it takes more than money, it takes the right laws, the proper systems to protect and training for understanding… these seem to have been lacking in the Premier’s plan.  Magnetic  Media asked the Premier during that media conference what his government plans to invest financially on CCTV, he did not have that figure as yet and could not say.Commissioner Smith said not only is expertise being brought in due to his efforts to get to the bottom of so many unsolved cases, he shared in the media release issued late today that he saw to it that the National Security Council was set up and that there needs to be laws so that police can take DNA samples and set up biometrics.  This is the same biometrics which Blue Hills Member, Goldray Ewing called for publically and in the House of Assembly, even getting a motion passed since 2014.The Premier, last Thursday admitted that the laws are still in limbo and there is no announcement about biometrics being done on a wide scale.  The PDMs shadow Cabinet minister responsible as the watchman on crime told Magnetic Media that biometrics is being done department by department – that it is haphazard and impossible for Police and Immigration for example to share information easily.The Commissioner gave lots of attention to antiquated laws that undermine their investigations, he said we need the  “capabilities to solve crime and identify perpetrators, updated criminal evidence legislation, a change to the way we manage our roads, vehicles and driving licenses, along with a number of other legislative improvements that I have already discussed with government, should combine to significantly improve safety and security.”  All of this, according to Premier Rufus Ewing is in the works.  Read the Commissioner’s complete statement at MagneticMediaTV.com.

Googles problems in China are bigger than Huawei

first_img Share your voice Google says China is important to explore — even if… 20 Mentioned Above Huawei MateBook X Pro The ban highlights Google’s unusual position. Unlike other tech companies, such as iPhone maker Apple, Google’s biggest product isn’t available in China. Losing its relationship with Huawei will only make it more difficult for the search giant to eventually enter the lucrative market. “They are walking more of a political tightrope than the other players are,” said Bob O’Donnell, president of Technalysis Research. “Google’s biggest money maker — search — isn’t there.”Google declined to comment.Read: Samsung has the most to gain from Google putting Huawei on iceThe search giant, of course, isn’t the only tech company blocked in China. Facebook’s service is blocked in China though it has advertisers in the country. Twitter can’t be accessed in China. (You can check whether a website is available in China with the Blocked in China tool.)Still, few tech companies are as obviously eager to be part of the market as Google, said O’Donnell. Dragonfly, the censored search product, would reportedly blacklist search terms disapproved of by the Chinese government, such as “student protest” and “Nobel Prize.” It also may have tied searches to people’s phone numbers. Human rights advocates protested when news of Dragonfly broke last year. Google called work on the project “exploratory” and said it had “no plans” to launch a search service in China. When Google CEO Sundar Pichai was dragged in front of Congress last December, Dragonfly was a key topic in the grilling. Google has also been criticized for its artificial intelligence lab in Beijing, which opened in 2017. In March, Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the search giant’s work in the country is “indirectly benefiting the Chinese military.” Pichai ended up meeting with both Dunford and President Donald Trump that month to discuss Google’s relationship with China.Now the search giant’s relationship with Huawei is another source of friction in its overall relations with China. None of those sources of tension is likely to ease anytime soon.”Google,” says Technalysis’ O’Donnell, “is in a particularly tough spot.” See it Huawei MateBook X Pro CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Google has long had a complicated relationship with China. Getty Google’s troubles in China now include Huawei.For years, the tech giant has been dogged by its relationship with the world’s biggest country. In 2010, Google pulled out of the search market in China after co-founder Sergey Brin cited the government’s “totalitarian” policies, including censorship of the web. Since then, Google has tried to tiptoe back into the huge and appealing market, only to draw the ire of lawmakers and human rights advocates. Dragonfly, a censored search product for China, and an AI lab in Beijing have been particularly controversial.Now Google has to deal with another issue in the country. On May 15, the Trump administration upended the tech world by effectively banning Huawei from doing business with US companies. A host of tech giants — Qualcomm, Broadcom and Intel — reacted quickly, reportedly cutting off business with the world’s second-largest smartphone maker. Microsoft removed Huawei’s MateBook X Pro laptop from its online store, an apparent reaction to the ban.Google, too, reacted swiftly, saying that it would stop providing Huawei with technical support and that upcoming versions of Huawei’s phones outside China would no longer get access to Google’s Play Store app marketplace and its marquee slate of services, including YouTube and Gmail. The move was temporarily reversed on Tuesday after the US said it would issue a 90-day license for US mobile companies to figure out long-term solutions. $1,720center_img Comments News • What the Huawei Matebook X Pro tells us about Nvidia MX250 graphics Now playing: Watch this: Mobile Review • The MateBook X Pro squeezes some big features into its little package Tags 3:01 Google Huawei Alphabet Inc.last_img read more

Photo: AFPIsrael said Thursday it will bar a planned visit by two US congresswomen who have supported a boycott of the country over its treatment of the Palestinians, a decision strongly encouraged by US president Donald Trump.Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the highly unusual move against Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib necessary, charging that their “sole purpose is to harm Israel and increase incitement against it”.But Democratic politicians in the United States called on Israel to reconsider, while senior Palestinian official Hanan Ashrawi labelled it “an outrageous act of hostility against the American people and their representatives”.Omar and Tlaib, who is of Palestinian origin, were expected to arrive in Israel at the weekend for a visit that would have taken them to the Palestinian territories.Israeli officials said they would consider a separate humanitarian request from Tlaib to visit family members in the occupied West Bank, a trip for which she would have to pass through Israel.Israel announced its decision shortly after Trump called on the country to bar the Democratic congresswomen who are among his sharpest critics.”It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep. Tlaib to visit,” Trump wrote on Twitter.He continued with typical bombast: “They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!”Tlaib is from Michigan and Omar from Minnesota.- ‘The squad’ -Netanyahu alleged their itinerary showed they intended to strengthen the boycott movement against Israel.”As a vibrant and free democracy, Israel is open to any critic and criticism, with one exception,” Netanyahu said in a statement.”Israel’s law prohibits the entry of people who call and act to boycott Israel, as is the case with other democracies that prevent the entry of people whom they see as harming the country.”In 2017, Israel passed a law banning entry to foreigners who support boycotting the country.The law was passed in response to a movement to boycott Israel as a means to pressure the country over its treatment of the Palestinians.Israel sees the movement as a strategic threat and accuses it of anti-Semitism — a claim activists deny, saying they only want to see the occupation end.Prominent Arab Israeli parliament member Ayman Odeh called the ban of the congresswomen “another desperate attempt to hide the reality to the world”.Both Omar and Tlaib have been critical of Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and treatment of Palestinians.The Democrats have also faced accusations of anti-Semitism, which they firmly deny.The Israeli ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, had previously signalled the two congresswomen would be allowed to visit out of respect for Washington, Israel’s most important ally.But the two are also outspoken political opponents and critics of Trump, who has a close relationship with Netanyahu.Known as “the squad,” the congresswomen — along with two other progressive congressional allies, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley — have been in Trump’s crosshairs.He has taken aim at the four in a series of xenophobic comments, telling them to “go back” where they came from and accusing them of having “love” for America’s “enemies like Al-Qaeda”, among other remarks.Ocasio-Cortez, a 29-year-old of Puerto Rican ancestry, is the youngest member of the House of Representatives, while Pressley is the first African American elected to Congress from Massachusetts.Tlaib and Omar, who fled war-torn Somalia as a child and arrived in the United States as a refugee, are the first two Muslim women elected to Congress.Tlaib is also the first woman of Palestinian descent in Congress.- ‘Unprecedented’ -The two congresswomen had not reacted to the decision, but Pressley called it “bigoted, short sighted and cruel”.Prominent Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren tweeted “this would be a shameful, unprecedented move”.Members of Congress are regular visitors to Israel and the Palestinian territories and blocking them is highly unusual.It comes at a time when Jewish groups in the United States have expressed concern over whether bipartisan support for Israel in Washington is eroding.Democratic candidates for president in the United States have openly criticised Netanyahu, who is seeking re-election in Israel on September 17 after polls earlier this year failed to yield a coalition.Influential US pro-Israel lobby AIPAC said it disagreed with the congresswomen’s views, but opposed the decision to bar them.last_img read more

UPDATE House GOP Postpones Key Immigration Vote

UPDATE House GOP Postpones Key Immigration Vote

On

first_imgThe Republican-run House has rejected a conservative immigration bill that offered no path to citizenship for young “Dreamer” immigrants. It also would have made it harder for immigrant citizens to bring relatives to the U.S. and taken steps to crack down on illegal immigration.The measure’s defeat was long expected. Many GOP moderates considered it too harsh and Democrats were solidly against it.Thursday’s vote gave hard-right Republicans, who largely come from deep-red districts, a chance to broadcast to voters the tough steps they would take on the issue. The measure was defeated 231-193.The House next plans to debate a GOP-measure crafted by Republican leaders as a compromise between party moderates and conservatives.That bill also seems likely to be defeated because some conservatives consider it too lenient.___ President Donald Trump said he’s “officially” inviting Democratic leaders to the White House to discuss immigration legislation.Speaking ahead of a Cabinet meeting, Trump said he was making the open invitation through the press.Trump said: “We should be able to do a bill. I’d invite them to come to the White House any time they want. This afternoon would be good. After the Cabinet meeting would be good.”Trump is blaming Democrats for obstructing immigration legislation, saying, “We need two to tango.” A Republican-led effort in the House to address legal status for young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally and to fund Trump’s border wall is teetering on the edge of collapse.Trump said: “I just told you I’ll invite Sen. Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. They can come over. They can bring whoever they want.”It wasn’t immediately clear whether Democrats had been formally invited or if they were planning to accept.___President Donald Trump is defending his Wednesday executive order to end new family separations at the border, but said Congress needs to act to permanently fix the problem.Speaking before a Cabinet meeting, Trump said “I signed a very good executive order.”But he said the “only real solution” is for Congress to close loopholes in the immigration system, saying “If we don’t close these loopholes there is no amount of money or personnel in the world.”As congressional Republicans look to pass sweeping immigration bills Thursday, Trump said Democrats are obstructionists and is accusing them of not caring about the children separated from their parents.This spring, the Trump administration put in a place a zero-tolerance policy on illegal border crossings, resulting in children separated from families at the border.___AP Photo/J. Scott ApplewhiteSpeaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wis., meets with reporters before a House showdown on immigration, at the Capitol in Washington, Thursday, June 21, 2018. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)House Speaker Paul Ryan said he was “pleased” President Donald Trump ordered an end to separating children from parents at the U.S. border.“I was pleased the president took action yesterday to ensure families can remain together while we enforce our immigration laws,” the Wisconsin Republican said at his weekly press conference. “We do not want children taken away from their parents.”But Ryan stopped short of predicting the House will pass legislation Thursday aimed at resolving broader immigration issues ahead of the November elections.Trump tweeted earlier that any such legislation is all but doomed in the narrowly-divided Senate.We do not want children taken away from their parents. Yesterday’s action by @POTUS will ensure families can remain together while we enforce our immigration laws. In a few short hours, the House will take further action on legislation to address our broken immigration system. pic.twitter.com/5y5NTXKtJA— Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) June 21, 2018____There’s an embarrassing, $100 billion oops in a House immigration bill.The Republican-written measure was supposed to give initial approval for $24.8 billion spread over the next five years for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico and other security measures.Instead, the legislation says it would provide $24.8 billion “for each” of the next five years.Republicans call it a drafting mistake.The text will be corrected in a procedural vote the House expects to take Thursday.The error is in a bill that offers no pathway to citizenship for many young migrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children and has stringent restrictions on legal immigration. The measure seems certain to be defeated.The House also plans to vote on a more moderate GOP immigration bill.___House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is deriding the Republican immigration legislation coming up for a vote as a “compromise with the devil.”Pelosi said the legislation makes House Republicans “complicit” in President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy that has resulted in more than 2,000 children being separated from their parents at the border.She spoke as the House raced toward votes on two broad immigration bills that would, among other things, allow immigrant families detained after crossing the border to be held together. Trump suggested Thursday that any measure the chamber passes would be doomed in the Senate anyway. One bill is aimed at appealing to GOP moderates, while the other is harder-line legislation favored by conservatives.Pelosi said the bill aimed at moderates “may be a compromise with the devil, but it’s not a compromise with Democrats.”___A civil rights group attorney says federal prosecutors unexpectedly dropped misdemeanor charges against 17 adult immigrants who crossed the border with children.Efren Olivares is a lawyer with the Texas Civil Rights Project. Speaking outside of the federal courthouse in McAllen, Texas, he said the 17 immigrants were supposed to have been sentenced Thursday morning for improperly entering the U.S.Olivares said the 17 will likely be placed in immigration detention, though he didn’t know whether they would be reunited immediately with their children or released altogether. Asked if they had any reaction to the charges against them being dropped, he said, “They’re asking about their children, frankly.”The Texas Civil Rights Project is interviewing adults to track them and their children through separate government systems.The dropping of the charges comes a day after President Donald Trump reversed a policy of forcibly separating immigrant children from their parents upon entering the U.S. without permission.___The Pentagon says it is providing 21 lawyers to the Justice Department to help prosecute illegal immigration cases on the U.S.-Mexico border.A spokesman, Lt. Col. Jamie Davis, said Thursday that the lawyers have criminal trial experience and will be appointed as full-time special assistant United States attorneys. He said the attorneys will help prosecute border immigration cases with a focus on misdemeanor improper entry and felony illegal entry cases.Davis said the temporary assignments are to last for 179 days.Davis said the Justice Department made the request in May, and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis approved it earlier this month.___House and Senate Democrats are demanding that President Donald Trump reunify the families that were separated at the U.S. border.Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer in the Senate and Nancy Pelosi in the House sent a letter Thursday to the White House urging the president to do everything necessary to reunite more than 2,300 children with their families.Trump on Wednesday issued an executive order that allowed families to stay together, but the Democrats say that the Health and Human Services Department didn’t take immediate steps to reunify the families.Earlier Thursday, Trump took aim at the Democrats saying New York’s Schumer and California’s Pelosi are both weak on crime and border security.The House is set to vote Thursday on two immigration bills. House Republican leaders are still trying to build support for one negotiated among conservative and moderate factions of the GOP.___President Donald Trump is fueling uncertainty about an already shaky House GOP immigration overhaul, questioning “the purpose of the House doing good immigration bills when you need nine votes by Democrats in the Senate.”Trump tweeted Thursday that “the Dems are only looking to Obstruct (which they feel is good for them in the Mid-Terms).” He adds: “Republicans must get rid of the stupid Filibuster Rule-it is killing you!”Trump’s tweet comes as the House plans to vote on two immigration bills. House Republican leaders are still trying to build support for one negotiated among conservative and moderate factions of the GOP.The president has said previously that he wants to change the Senate’s rules to eliminate the filibuster, and allow passage of all bills on a simple-majority vote.____President Donald Trump says the U.S.-Mexico border is a “big mess,” and that at some point the Democratic leaders in the House and Senate “will be forced to do a real deal” on immigration.Trump’s tweet Thursday comes as the House plans to vote on two immigration bills. House Republican leaders are still trying to build support for one negotiated among conservative and moderate factions of the GOP, although the measure is unlikely to pick up much, if any, Democratic support.Trump had embraced a hardline “zero-tolerance policy” at the border, only to back down after reports that the approach resulted in 2,300 children detained separately from their families.Tweeting on Thursday, Trump said Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi are both weak on crime and border security.He wrote: “At some point Schumer and Pelosi, who are weak on Crime and Border security, will be forced to do a real deal, so easy, that solves this long time problem. Schumer used to want Border security – now he’ll take Crime!”___House Republicans are trying to approve an immigration overhaul that teetered ahead of voting Thursday.Lawmakers are struggling to move past a debate that has become politically fraught amid the dire images of families being separated at the border.President Donald Trump’s sudden executive action Wednesday on the border crisis stemmed some of the urgency for Congress to act. But House GOP leaders still were pulling out the stops to bring reluctant Republicans on board to resolve broader immigration issues ahead of the November midterm elections.Passage was always a long shot. But now failure may come at a steeper price as Republicans — and Trump — raise expectations that the party in control of Congress and the White House can fix the nation’s long-standing immigration problems.

Voting that had been expected Thursday now would be held Friday instead. That’s according to aides who demanded anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the situation publicly.House Republicans have been struggling on rival immigration bills.

Buffer gas cooling could open up the field of ultracold physics

On

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — “Scientists have been making Bose-Einstein Condensates [BECs] for nearly 15 years,” Charlie Doret tells PhysOrg.com. “Essentially all BEC research to date, however, begins with laser cooling. Unfortunately, laser cooling is impractical for some atoms, and it is especially difficult with molecules, limiting the scope of new research.” This document is subject to copyright.

Citation: Buffer gas cooling could open up the field of ultracold physics (2009, September 17) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2009-09-buffer-gas-cooling-field-ultracold.html Explore furthercenter_img Scientists Announce First Observation of ‘Persistent Flow’ in a Gas In order to create a more general method for producing ultracold atoms and molecules, Doret, a graduate student at Harvard University, worked with a team to develop a method of buffer-gas cooling that would work for many different atoms and even for many molecules. “Our process is more general than laser cooling,” he explains. Along with Colin Connolly and John Doyle at Harvard and Wolfgang Ketterle at MIT, Doret believes that their more widely applicable technique will enable creation of BECs with new atoms and molecules. Their work can be found in Physical Review Letters: “Buffer-Gas Cooled Bose-Einstein Condensate.” To make BECs with ultracold atoms and molecules, an initial cooling and trapping stage is needed. The atoms or molecules in question are cooled to a point where they are moving slowly enough to be trapped. Once they are trapped they can be cooled further, leading to Bose-Einstein condensation. BECs are useful in a number of experiments, and have potential practical applications due to their similarities to laser light. “Unfortunately,” Doret points out, “laser cooling just doesn’t work well for some stuff.” In laser cooling, photons are sent to bombard the atom in such a way that it eventually slows down, via a scattering process. Doret explains that this technique is similar to using golf balls to slow down a bowling ball. “It works eventually, but it takes a lot of photon scattering events to slow an atom, just as you would expect to use a great many golf balls to effectively slow a bowling ball.” Instead of using lasers to slow down an atom, Doret and his peers opted for using a buffer gas. “We have a cold gas that we can bounce off of hot atoms. Collisions with this buffer gas cools the atoms, making them easier to magnetically trap, after which they can be further cooled until they Bose-condense.” For the current experiment, the Harvard and MIT team used cooled helium gas as a buffer to cool metastable helium atoms. “We have demonstrated the process from start to finish with atoms, but we haven’t done it with molecules. But the principle should be the same, and our next attempt will probably be to attempt to use buffer-gas cooling – with a few little tweaks – to create a BEC of the NH molecule.” A general path to BEC with molecules would be a huge step forward for ultracold physics, Doret insists. “One big effect it could have is for the possibility of building a quantum computer. One way that has been suggested is to take polar molecules and trap them in an optical lattice, using the cold molecules as qubits. Due to the difficulty of laser cooling molecules, getting polar molecules into a lattice is a challenging but important step. Buffer-gas cooling could work, though.” In the end, Doret believes that buffer-gas cooling could provide the means to experiment further with BECs and other subjects of interest. “Buffer-gas cooling allows us to use atoms and molecules not accessible in the past. There are new applications to pursue, and more tools that can be brought into play. This could open up the entire field of ultracold physics.” More information: Doret, et. al. “Buffer-Gas Cooled Bose-Einstein Condensate,” Physical Review Letters (2009).

6 Ways to Extend Your iPhone Battery Life After Updating to iOS

On

first_img 4 min read Register Now » No one likes a dead iPhone. If you recently updated yours to iOS 7.1, you know how much of a drain Apple’s latest mobile update is on its battery life — and on your patience.Don’t despair. We’ve got you covered with these six quick and easy iPhone battery boosting tips and tricks. You’ll be back up and running in no time (hopefully not into people and walls and stuff while walking and texting).   Related: With iOS 7 Update, Here are the Biggest Changes That Just Came to Your iPhone1. Trim the fat: shut down all unnecessary apps. If you’re done posting selfies on Instagram, close it. While you’re at it, shut down your email, Safari, Facebook, Twitter, or anything else that’s open and doesn’t need to be. Apps left open continuously leech power from your battery continuously. No bueno.To shut down open apps, double-click your iPhone’s Home Button and swipe up on each one to close it. Boom. Done.2. Let the Wi-Fi rip. Enabling Wi-Fi helps your iPhone gobble up less power when you’re doing something on it that needs to access data. To enable Wi-Fi, go to Settings, choose Wi-Fi and log into a Wi-Fi network. Good to go.3. Chill on the screen brightness. Turning on the Auto-Brightness feature stretches your battery life by allowing the screen to adjust according to the current lighting conditions. You can also simply manually dim your screen.To enable Auto-Brightness, go to Settings, choose Brightness & Wallpaper and set the Auto-Brightness to On.To dim your screen brightness manually, go to Settings, choose Brightness & Wallpaper and drag the slider to the left, kind of like rejecting a match on Tinder, but way less cool.  Related: Apple’s iPhone: Designedy in California But Manufactured All Around the World (Infographic) 4. Ditch push notifications from apps. They mostly annoy you anyway, right? No one wants LinkedIn push notifying them every time a hiring manager wants to connect or a Facebook pop-up informing them that their ninth grade geometry teacher just commented on their status. Actually, we love most app push notifications (especially the retweet kind from Twitter), but, alas, they are big-time battery life suckers.To turn them off, go to Settings, choose Notifications, then select the apps you want to disable and tweak your notification settings for each.Pick from the following:– Change Alert Style to None.– Turn Badge App Icon off.– Turn Sounds off.New notifications will be received when you open your push-happy apps again.5. Fly in Airplane Mode in places with low and no cell coverage. Your iPhone blows a lot of battery juice trying to keep a connection to the local cellular network, which could suck up more power in low- and no-coverage areas. To combat this problem and boost your battery power, switch to Airplane Mode by going into Settings and selecting it. We don’t suggest trying this trick if you’re expecting an important call; Airplane Mode doesn’t let you make or receive calls.Related: How to Protect Your Apple Devices From Getting Hacked Right Now6. Give location services the shaft. Apps that love location services, like Google Maps, Siri, Flipboard, to name a few, are notorious battery life slayers. To see which apps have recently used location services, go to your iPhone Settings, select Privacy and choose Location Services. From here you can turn off location services for individual apps.To disable Location Services altogether, go to Settings, choose Privacy, select Location Services and simply switch the feature off. You are now off the grid. Well, mostly.Tell us: What are your favorite iPhone battery life-saving tricks? Do share in the comments below. We’d love to hear from you.

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Linemen Earl Watford (78), A.Q. Shipley (53), D.J. Humphries (74) and Jared Veldheer (68) walk around the field during mini-camp. (Photo by Adam Green/Arizona Sports) “I’ve been doing that,” Watford said, pausing to make air quotes, “unofficially for some time now. That was my little side project, my little test to myself — I have to do this. It’s just something else that I wanted to check off, to give me another opportunity to help this team to win that championship.”Learning to play center and all that it entails, making the line calls and snapping the ball to the quarterback, had nothing to do with the roster, according to Watford.Right now A.Q. Shipley is penciled in to be the Cardinals’ starting center with rookie Evan Boehm expected to heighten the competition in training camp. Watford, though, saw enough reps in organized team activities and mini-camp to be included in the mix, perhaps even ahead of Boehm.“He’s done really well at center,” Goodwin said of Watford. “Kind of shocked me a little bit he’s done well as far as ID’ing the front, making the calls and getting the ball up to Carson (Palmer).”With Jared Veldheer, Mike Iupati and Evan Mathis locked in at left tackle, left guard and right guard, respectively, center and right tackle are the Cardinals’ two biggest question marks on the offensive line. Watford’s pro career consists of 18 games, with many of those appearances coming on special teams. Last season marked his first significant snaps as an offensive lineman.Considering the Cardinals used eight different linemen a year ago — Veldheer was the only one to start every game — Watford figures to once again be a major piece to the puzzle.Of course the goal is to start, but Watford stands at the ready, for whatever position may needed to be filled.“It was a challenge and I accepted the challenge to be able to do all five. I’ve been here the longest with this staff, so I should be able to know everything,” he said. “That’s what I have to do until I’m officially a starter and will be playing just one position, but right now, the more I can do the better chances will help me be around and stick around a long time. Just embrace it. You can’t be mad at it, whether you’re a starter or not, you just got to keep coming to work, keep showing up and just do what you have to do to help the team win.“I got to prepare better than everyone else because of the position I’m in and just keep working.” – / 15 Top Stories 0 Comments   Share   D.J. Humphries will be given every opportunity to win the tackle job, but after being inactive all last season, he remains unproven.Watford made two starts at right tackle in 2015, the first two of his career as he stepped in for the suspended Bobby Massie in Weeks 1 and 2. He also saw time at guard, replacing the injured Iupati in the second quarter at Seattle and then again in the first quarter against Cincinnati.Watford’s position flexibility makes him very attractive to the Cardinals.“The more you can do in this league, the better chance you got at sticking on the roster,” Goodwin said.Added Arians, “We like to only dress seven linemen on Sunday, so if you can play three spots, you have a lot of value in this league; you can play for a long time.”Watford, who turns 26 later this month, is entering his fourth season, the last under his rookie contract. In other words, 2016 is a big year. Watford, however, wouldn’t admit to it publicly.“It’s a bigger offseason for the simple fact that it’s the next one,” he said. “I really truly believe in myself. Confidence is at an all-time high, and I feel great and I’m excited about this team and what we can do together. I just got to keep working, keep showing up and whatever happens, happens.” TEMPE, Ariz. — When asked what players had stood out during offseason workouts, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians saved his highest praise for a reserve offensive lineman.“I thought Earl Watford had a hell of a spring,” he said.A couple weeks earlier, offensive coordinator/line coach Harold Goodwin called Watford his “Swiss Army knife” because Watford showed the ability to play all five positions along the offensive line, adding the center spot only recently.
