first_imgTORONTO – The head of Canada’s largest wireless carrier said Thursday the appetite for the Apple iPhone 8 smartphone is “anemic” as the company gets set to take orders of the iPhone X next week.Rogers Communications Inc. CEO Joe Natale said on a conference call that the company will begin taking orders of the “very expensive” iPhone X on Oct. 27 and will begin sales the following week, on Nov.3. The iPhone X will be Apple’s most expensive smartphone to date, which will retail in Canada for almost $1,300.However, he added, device availability is “a question mark” and the full impact of the new devices might not be felt until the first quarter of 2018, adding to concerns about soft sales for Apple devices.Analysts attribute iPhone 8 sluggishness to the pending release of the iPhone X.The current iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus had a two per cent share of the U.S. iOS device market nearly a month after their launch, significantly lagging the five per cent share grabbed by the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus at a similar point last year, according to Localytics, a mobile engagement platform that analyzes iPhone adoption rates.The iPhone 8 went on sale on Sept. 22 in Canada.During the call, Natale said it was the wireless services — rather than sales of devices like smartphones — that was the main area of growth for Rogers Wireless.Natale added that he’s not concerned about a new pricing initiative being promoted by Shaw’s Freedom Mobile.Freedom announced this week that it’s now offering 10 gigabytes of data for $50 “with no penalties for data overages.”While the rival service’s announcement says its new Big Gig plan is “unlike anything currently being offered to Canadians,” Rogers CEO Joe Natale said he viewed it as “business as usual.”“First of all, we have always competed with Freedom on price. This appears to be an extension of this strategy, with a lot of marketing bravado behind it,” Natale told analysts in a conference call Thursday.“It wasn’t long ago that they had an 80-gig package for about sixty bucks, and it was kind of benign in terms of its impact. So I would look at it as a business-as-usual situation.”“The goal would be to leverage our ability to get customers in the right data plan,” Natale said.“The key is: customers’ appetites for data are growing 40, 50 per cent per year. We’d rather have them in the place where they’re in the right data plan or they can occasionally have a top-up if they see fit.In the third quarter ended Sept. 30, Roger’s profit grew to $467 million, driven mostly by the strength of its wireless business and incremental progress at its cable and internet division.Rogers Media was the only major division to report a decline in revenue, which was down three per cent from the third quarter of 2016, when Rogers benefited from the World Cup of Hockey.Rogers also announced the media division’s adjusted operating profit fell 18 per cent, primarily due to a higher Toronto Blue Jays player payroll and lower publishing-related revenue.During the call, one analyst asked whether Rogers was considering a sale of any non-core assets.Natale replied that Rogers is committed to look at “ways of surfacing value from our portfolio assets, whether it be the Jays or some of our other investments.”“We don’t have any plans at this moment that we are announcing or even giving a nod to. Our focus, very much, is on our core business.”Rogers reported its net income for the three months ended Sept. 30 amounted to 91 cents per diluted share, up from $220 million or 43 cents per share last year.On an adjusted basis, Rogers earned $523 million or $1.02 per share for the quarter, up from $427 million or 83 cents per share a year ago.Revenue totalled $3.58 billion, up from $3.49 billion in the same quarter last year.Rogers also raised its guidance for the growth of its adjusted operating profit for 2017 to between five and six per cent compared with its original expectations for growth of two to four per cent.last_img read more

“Accountability for past violations must remain high on the Council’s agenda.  Impunity for human rights violations is an unsolvable debt, which, if unaddressed, is transmitted through generations. No country, no society can afford this. This is true in the case of Sri Lanka where accountability must be an essential part of any process of national reconciliation. We believe that the Human Rights Council should engage the authorities to fully implement the recommendations of the Lessons Learned and Reconciliation Commission, and to engage with the UN on the Report of the UN Secretary General’s Panel of Experts,” he said. The European Union (EU) today told the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to encourage Sri Lanka to fully implement the recommendations of the Lessons Learned and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC).The Foreign Minister of Denmark Villy Sovndal, speaking on behalf of the EU at the 19th session of the UN Human Rights Council today, said that Sri Lanka must also be told to engage with the UN on the Experts Panel report. Meanwhile South Africa commended the Sri Lankan government for its decision to setup an authoritative mechanism to further investigate allegations related to human rights abuses and he encouraged the government to take decisive action upon the findings. South African Deputy Minister of International Relations Marius Fransman, told the Council during the session today that his government has also noted the release of the LLRC report and its positive recommendations. read more

Lord Bramall was awarded compensation Credit:Geoff Pugh for The Telegraph Lord Bramall  An alleged fantasist, known only as Nick, who claimed he had been raped and abused by a powerful VIP paedophile ring, could face charges after police referred the case to prosecutors.Detectives from Northumbria Police have spent ten months investigating the man on suspicion of perverting the course of justice, after his claims led to a huge Scotland Yard investigation known as Operation Midland.They have also been investigating Nick, who cannot be properly identified for legal reasons, on suspicion of making a fraudulent claim to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.But it is understood police have now concluded their inquiries and have sent a file on the case to prosecutors, who will now decide whether to press charges.A spokesman for Northumbria Police said: “Last year Northumbria Police launched an investigation at the request of the Metropolitan Police Service.”We can confirm that on 4th September a file was passed to the Crown Prosecution Service for them to make a decision on whether or not there will be any charges in relation to the investigation. To date nobody has been arrested in connection with the investigation.”A Crown Prosecution Service spokesman said: “On 4 September we received a file of evidence from Northumbria Police into allegations against one person of perverting the course of justice and fraud.center_img Among those to have their reputation traduced during the inquiry was the late former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath, former Home Secretary Lord Brittan and the former head of the army Lord Bramall.Former Tory MP Harvey Proctor, who spent more than a year under investigation, lost his home and his job and his now seeking substantial damages from the Metropolitan Police.Last week, Scotland Yard confirmed that it had paid £100,000 compensation to Lord Bramall and Lord’s Brittan’s widow after raiding their homes during the probe. “Our prosecutors will consider the evidence with a view to making a charging decision in line with the Code for Crown Prosecutors.”The maximum sentence for perverting the course of justice is life imprisonment.Operation Midland, which cost £2.5 million, saw a number leading politicians and other high profile figures falsely accused of appalling child abuse and even murder.last_img read more

The EU will be required to immediately apply its rules and tariffs at its borders with the UK. The statement added that despite the “considerable preparations” of the Member States’ customs authorities, these controls “could cause significant delays at the border”. Similarly, UK citizens would be subject to additional checks when crossing borders into the EU – which could also cause delays at ports and airports. Five million sign petition An anti-Brexit march in London drew an estimated crown of more than one million people on Saturday. The Put it to the People protest, one of the biggest demonstrations in recent British history, demanded a second Brexit referendum. More than five million people have signed an online petition calling for the British government to cancel Brexit by revoking Article 50. May has repeatedly said she won’t do this. The petition states that a “second Brexit referendum may not happen – so vote now”. “The government repeatedly claims exiting the EU is ‘the will of the people’. We need to put a stop to this claim by proving the strength of public support now, for remaining in the EU. A People’s Vote may not happen – so vote now,” it reads.Cabinet coup As negotiations to get more MPs onside continue, May’s own future as prime minister appears to hang in the balance.The Sunday Times yesterday reported she was “at the mercy of a full-blown cabinet coup”, with plans afoot for her de facto deputy David Lidington to take over in a caretaker capacity.The newspaper said it had spoken to 11 senior ministers who “confirmed that they wanted the prime minister to make way for someone else” and planned to confront her at today’s Cabinet meeting.May worsened relations with many MPs last week after she hit out at them in a speech. “MPs have been unable to agree on a way to implement the UK’s withdrawal. As a result, we will not leave on time with a deal on 29 March. This delay is a matter of great personal regret for me,” May said in a televised speech on Wednesday night.Her address was sharply criticised by many MPs, from across the political divide, who viewed it as an attempt to shift blame for the ongoing crisis from herself to others.Conservative Sam Gyimah said “resorting to the blame game” was “a low blow”, while Labour’s Lisa Nandy described the speech as “disgraceful”.Describing her speech as “incendiary and irresponsible”, Labour MP Wes Streeting said May would be partly responsible “if any harm comes to us”, noting that MPs have been subjected “credible” death threats.When later asked if she would apologise for her comments, May said she understands that MPs are frustrated, saying so is she.“There are passionately held views on all sides of the argument,” she noted, adding that the House of Commons now has a “clear choice” between an “orderly” Brexit and a no-deal scenario.Backstop Many politicians have raised concerns about the backstop element of the deal, which aims to avoid a hard border between the Republic and Northern Ireland and could see the North stay aligned to some EU rules.The Democratic Unionist Party, which campaigned in favour of Brexit and props up May’s minority government, believes the backstop threatens the United Kingdom and could lead to a trade border in the Irish Sea.European leaders including Taoiseach Leo Varadkar have repeatedly said the deal cannot be renegotiated.Doubt was last week cast on over whether or not the House of Commons would actually vote on her Brexit deal for a third time.John Bercow, Speaker of the House of Commons, said the government cannot have another meaningful vote on the deal if changes are not made to it.Solicitor General Robert Buckland claimed the UK was facing a “major constitutional crisis” as a result.Contains reporting from © AFP 2019   Share143 Tweet Email3 59 Comments An effigy of British Prime Minister Theresa May is wheeled through Trafalgar Square during an anti-Brexit march in London on Saturday.

May had wanted to delay Brexit until 30 June but welcomed the extension, insisting Brexit will still happen.Some Brexiteers have suggested the delay is part of a wider attempt to stop Britain from leaving the EU.Delays In a statement issued this morning, the European Commission said: “In a ‘no-deal’ scenario, the UK will become a third country without any transitionary arrangements.last_img read more

James Grant and Democrat Rep. Matt Willhite are working on a bill that would create a statewide database to store driver’s licenses and insurance information.If passed, the bill would allow drivers to present electronic versions of their ID on their phones. However, carrying a physical driver’s license would still be mandated under law.The digital version stored in phones would act as a backup in case drivers lose or forget their IDs at home in situations such as a traffic stop or going to vote.According to the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, this bill is similar to programs being created in more than a dozen other states.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Ralph Breaks the Internet is a fantastic sequel that… 33 Photos TV and Movies Post a comment Now playing: Watch this: Share your voice 2:16 Ralph Breaks the Internet takes the wide world of the web and makes it the setting for Ralph and Vanellope’s journey. Walt Disney Animation Studios The creators of Ralph Breaks the Internet faced a gigantic challenge when production on the animated film began more than three years ago: how do you take the enormous yet transient nature of the internet and make it the setting for the sequel to 2012’s Wreck-It Ralph?I spoke with the Disney movie’s head of story, Josie Trinidad, about what it was like adapting the internet into a place where Wreck-It Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) have their next big adventure. Our wide-ranging conversation, which has been edited for clarity, covers the story-making process; what it’s like to pick elements of the internet that would feel fresh despite the web’s transient nature; a dive into the creation of the hilarious Disney princess scene; and the many sequences that were created but simply couldn’t make the film’s final cut. The movie is up for best animated motion picture at Sunday’s 2019 Golden Globes. The interview’s spoiler-free, but we do talk about elements from throughout the film for those of you who are particularly sensitive to knowing anything at all before seeing a film.Q: What was it like to transform the internet into a children’s movie?Josie Trinidad: When I found out that [directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston] wanted to do a movie about the internet, it’s like what an amazing, fun playground for our digital characters. Other Disney characters could not explore the internet the way Ralph and Vanellope can. It was such an exciting playground with so many places to choose from. It was almost difficult to narrow it down. But once we realized this was a quest movie, they were in search of a steering wheel, it sort of helped us narrow down where they were going to go.We wanted them to experience things like social media and online gaming because they are video game characters. At first it was sort of overwhelming. But once we knew they had a job — this quest for the steering wheel — it sort of guided us. Where would you go if you needed to buy this part? eBay, Amazon — you’d go shopping. And so then we thought wouldn’t it be funny if our characters go to eBay and yet they don’t understand how it works, and that it’s [about spending] money. The numbers they are bidding — it’s not a video game even though they think it is. It’s real money.Going through Ralph and Vanellope’s perspective in this big city of the internet made it more fun, offered more challenges and allowed us to play on their naivete. I have a 6-year-old son who knows what the internet is. He saw me storyboarding some sequences, and he said to me, “I want to go to the internet.” We made it such a physical, tactile and amazing place that my son sort of wanted to go.RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNETThe internet is a sprawling city in Ralph Breaks the Internet. Walt Disney Animation Studios Well, Disney might do that!Trinidad: Not until they make it a land in the parks, honey (laughs).What was it like when trends go by so fast? Fortnite is hot right now, but you worked on this before that game?Trinidad: When we were working on it, we talked about viral videos or memes and things like that. Our initial reaction was like let’s do a chocolate rain meme thing or double rainbow — and now that’s a hundred years ago. That’s ancient news.It was a huge challenge for us knowing that it could easily date us in this film. I think by going through our characters — first and foremost walking in their shoes and their journey — hopefully instead of dating us with these jokes or things of the zeitgeist, if the story is universal and the emotions and the characters, if that’s true and sort of gripping, that’s how our internet would be. Yes that’s 2018 internet; however I’m still engrossed in Ralph and Vanellope and their journey, and seeing how their friendship evolves. The way that I can watch Cinderella and Jungle Book and Little Mermaid, hopefully our movie would still be classic in that sense.Are there still video game character cameos or mostly should we expect internet personalities?Trinidad: The arcade that they come from, Mr. Litwak’s Arcade, is sort of like their small town. So we see our familiar characters there like Q*Bert, Pac-Man, the Ghosts and Sonic, Chun-Li, Zangief, so in their small town we see them and, of course, Felix and Calhoun. But in our internet world we do meet some Netizens — as we call them like Knowsmore (Alan Tudyk) and Yesss (Taraji P. Henson) — and also some video game characters like the Slaughter Race character in Shank voiced by Gal Gadot. Slaughter Race is sort of Grand Theft Auto with a post-apocalyptic vibe.Since the steering wheel is a physical object, does the movie take place in the real world too?Trinidad: We’re mostly in the internet. Of course, the steering wheel breaks in the arcade. But we don’t focus on that.https://www.cnet.com/es/noticias/nfl-mexico-city-partido-rams-chiefs-monday-night-football-cancelacion-azteca/?ftag=COS-05-10-aaa0a&linkId=59592068A more relaxed take on the Disney princesses becomes a major part of Vanellope’s arc in the film. Disney What were some overall challenges to the story when production started three years ago?Trinidad: Story starts especially early in the production process where there’s just a script, the idea and maybe some character designs and visuals. We help guide it and shape it. We have internal screenings where we storyboard the whole movie and really loose kind of drawings, and editors cut it together. Each one of them is a mini movie where we put up that version. We went through about four or five entirely different movies. It was about the fifth one where it really started to coalesce, and honestly that’s kind of when we came up with the idea of the broken steering wheel as the catalyst for them going into the internet. It really did take a while for us to get there.It’s an exhausting process, and yet it also yields the best results. We’re trying to find the best idea. We can’t just settle for that mediocre movie. If it’s not working, it’s not working. We have to throw it out, try again and try something better. Because otherwise we’re all admitting to failure and we can’t do that to such beloved characters and to ourselves as filmmakers. But once we got it, things just started to fall into place.But there were so many sequences, I think we boarded around 154 sequences. But in the movie, there are 45 sequences. There are 100 sequences, which are entire things that we thought were going to exist but were thrown out. And we had 283,839 storyboards.nullRalph and Vanellope learn the hard way that eBay is not a video game. Disney I can’t wait for the Blu-ray.Trinidad: Story is such a disposable kind of process and art. We’re trying to fail faster and get it wrong faster, so we can get it right. It’s a lot of ideas thrown on the floor.In a way, you have access to the entire Disney empire, what was it like figuring out what would make the most sense? The Princess sequence in particular is hilarious.Trinidad: It’s great, so happy that that scene plays so hilariously. The best part is it’s integral to Vanellope’s arc. It’s not just a one-off joke. It is incredibly important to Vanellope’s journey to learn something new. Only after she meets the princesses can she go in this new direction. It’s completely part of Vanellope’s arc, and it’s not just superfluous. There were many things we did try. But even if it was hilarious and we really loved something, if it didn’t work we threw it out. We weren’t tied to it if it wasn’t going to play a huge part in the storytelling.Was that the case with involving other Disney properties as well?Trinidad: I know that when we board these things, we try things out. Then if it works we show it to our partners like Lucasfilm and Marvel to get their blessing. With the princess scene we tried it because we thought of this great idea, Pam Ribon the co-writer wrote the pages, and they were amazing from the beginning. This was screening one, and we knew we had to try it because it was hilarious. From the response, our leadership was really supportive and we made sure that everyone was really happy for it. Really with the princesses, it was a loving homage to them, loving satire and a little bit poking fun at ourselves.What I love is being able to see another side of the princesses. They are just like us; they’re relaxed. They are not just these Disney icons. We can see them behind the scenes and sort of get to them as real characters.Do you work with the actors at all on story or is it more separate?Trinidad: A bit more separate. We start so early on that we if we’re going to throw a lot of stuff out or we are trying things, we do scratch-record voices just because we are working material out. When it starts to really solidify that’s when they’ll bring the actors in. John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman know their characters the best as well, so they are sort of partners with us. When we have recording sessions, Rich and Phil will definitely be open to improv and collaboration. One of the actors might say they are not sure about this line when my character says that, and they are so receptive. It’s sort of what makes the movie even more rich. It’s not just: please read the lines. It’s a huge collaborative effort.Do the animation folks weigh in as well?Trinidad: Yes they do. When we do these screenings we really invite other departments to give us their thoughts and give us their notes because they know the characters too. We are all the audience so we can kind of get this internal feedback which is really helpful. In a small group we might think “oh this is working, it’s really fun.” But if it falls flat in a screening, then we know: OK it’s not working. Again Rich and Phil are so open to collaboration, our animators and layout artists and lighters and everyone is invited to give us thoughts. If someone has a good idea, it doesn’t matter where it comes from. They are really good about incorporating it.First published Nov, 23, 2018. Update, Jan. 5 at 2:25 p.m. PT: Adds information about Golden Globe nomination.  Tags The best geek movies of 2018, ranked Disney 0last_img read more

Photo: AFPEU leaders clashed Friday over plans to build unity in the wake of Brexit, a day after a row with Poland over Donald Tusk’s re-election as the bloc’s president underscored deep divisions.European heavyweights Germany and France backed a “multi-speed” Europe after Britain’s divorce with the union.But Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo said she would never back such a plan, which is also opposed by some eastern European states that fear being left behind.The 27 EU leaders—without British Prime Minister Theresa May—struggled to draft a declaration that is to be unveiled at a March 25 summit in Rome to mark the EU’s 60th birthday.“The motto is that we are united in diversity,” Chancellor Angela Merkel said after the talks in describing what message would carry the day in Rome.Leaders have stressed the need to pull together as the European Union comes to terms with Britain’s seismic decision to leave the bloc.The EU 27 will “work together to promote the common good on the understanding that some of us can move closer, further and faster in some areas, keeping the door open to those who want to join later,” said a draft of the Rome proposals.‘Blackmail’The wording clearly prioritises a “multi-speed” Europe and drew ire from countries like Poland who are loath to see EU heavyweights go it alone, but also fear for the large subsidies they get from Brussels.“We disagree with any talk of a multi-speed Europe,” said Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo a day after fighting her EU leader counterparts over Tusk.Szydlo singled out outgoing French President Francois Hollande for criticism, accusing him of trying to “blackmail” Poland at the summit.“Am I supposed to take seriously the blackmail of a president who has a four percent approval rating and who soon won’t be president?” she said, without giving further details of what Hollande had done.Tusk, a former Polish premier, backed the drive for unity but also cautioned: “If you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together.”No ‘iron curtain’European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker insisted that any plans to integrate at different speeds after Brexit will not create a “new iron curtain” between east and west.“This is seen as introducing a new dividing line, a new kind of iron curtain between the east and west. That is not the intention,” Juncker said.The struggle to forge a more unified future for Europe was overshadowed by the clash with Poland over Tusk’s re-election as head of the European Council, which groups the bloc’s political leaders.Most of the 28 leaders who gathered on Thursday night—Britain still being present then—had hoped to push through Tusk’s re-election with a minimum of fuss so they could concentrate on the bloc’s future.Instead, they ran into outright opposition from the staunchly eurosceptic Polish government which cast the only “no” vote against 27 in favour.Szydlo accused her EU partners of setting a “dangerous precedent” by railroading their pick over the opinion of the candidate’s home government.Szydlo, whose right-wing eurosceptic Law and Justice party has nursed a long and bitter enmity with the centrist Tusk, blocked the summit’s final statement in response.“It’s not acceptable that one member says ‘I don’t want that’, and then the other 27 are paralysed,” Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel said of the Polish move as he arrived for the talks Friday.Britain’s May, who left Brussels after the first day of the summit, said she wanted to “get on with” leaving the European Union—and her fellow EU leaders agreed.The EU summit was May’s last before her self-imposed deadline to trigger the Article 50 withdrawal process by the end of March.Juncker on Friday said he regretted Britain’s decision but hoped that one day it would return to the EU “boat.”last_img read more

first_img Share the “social cost of carbon,” which puts a dollar figure on carbon pollution“In taking a sledgehammer to U.S. climate action, the administration will push the country backward, making it harder and more expensive to reduce emissions,” said Andrew Steer, president and CEO of the World Resources Institute, in a statement.“Climate science is clear and unwavering: mounting greenhouse gas emissions are warming our planet, putting people and business in harm’s way.”Some energy companies are celebrating the anticipated move. Trump is expected to be accompanied by energy executives when he signs the order.In a written statement, American Petroleum Institute president and CEO Jack Gerard said, “We look forward to working with the Trump administration and Congress on forward-looking energy policies that will help ensure the United States continues leading the world in the production and refining of oil and natural gas, and in the reduction of carbon emissions.”The current head of the EPA, former Oklahoma attorney general Scott Pruitt, is a longtime critic of environmental regulation. Earlier this month Pruitt said carbon dioxide is not a primary contributor to climate change, rejecting established science. Before becoming EPA administrator, Pruitt joined dozens of other state attorneys general who sued the agency to halt the Clean Power Plan.While some of the policies that Trump is targeting will be easy to overturn, the Clean Power Plan could prove more complicated. Environmental law experts say it could take the administration years to fully undo it.Here’s more on that policy and some of the others that Trump is expected to address later today:The Clean Power PlanThe Clean Power Plan is a set of national standards that are designed to slow human-caused climate change by limiting carbon pollution from power plants. The power sector accounts for almost 40 percent of the country’s carbon dioxide emissions. The Clean Power Plan would cut those emissions and carbon pollution 32 percent below 2005 levels by the year 2030.When he introduced it in 2015, Obama called the Clean Power Plan “the single most important step America has ever taken in the fight against climate change.” It’s the centerpiece of the U.S. commitment to the Paris climate agreement. Donald Trump and Republicans though, have called the plan a “job-killer” and have pledged to kill it instead.The senior White House official said today’s executive orders do not address the Paris climate deal. “Whether we stay in or out is still under discussion.”Trump’s executive orders kick off a rule-making process with the goal of ending the Clean Power Plan. But they won’t end the policy outright, nor do they say how his administration will get rid of it, and the devil may be in the details. Any effort to repeal the rule could prove lengthy, difficult and fraught with litigation.“Once you have something like the Clean Power Plan — a final rule-making — then that can’t be withdrawn using any process other than the one that was used to create it,” says Nathan Richardson, a visiting fellow at Resources for the Future.That means notices, public comment and a rule-making procedure that could take years.The Trump administration has time. Currently, the Clean Power Plan is held up in federal court after lawsuits from industry groups and states challenged its legality. A ruling could be months away and any decision — for or against the plan — will likely be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.Congress could also step in and amend the Clean Air Act to say the EPA shouldn’t regulate greenhouse gases, nullifying the Clean Power Plan, but that could prove politically challenging.Moratorium on federal coal leasesThe Obama administration placed a moratorium on new coal leases on federal lands in January 2016, citing concerns over pricing and pollution.During the estimated three-year hold on leasing, the Department of the Interior said it was going to review the country’s coal-leasing program to make sure it was providing “a fair return to taxpayers and reflect its impacts on the environment, while continuing to help meet our energy needs.”Federal lands account for roughly 40 percent of all U.S. coal production. Hundreds of millions of tons of coal are mined on federal lands every year, generating nearly $1.3 billion for the government in 2015.Environmental groups say that money doesn’t offset the societal costs of pollution from coal mining and consumption. Burning coal is a leading cause of carbon dioxide emissions.Trump’s order to lift the moratorium should take immediate effect, allowing the Bureau of Land Management to issue new coal leases on federal lands.But it’s not at all clear there will be any immediate rush for new leases.“Coal production fell in 2016,” says Robert Godby, director of the Center for Energy Economics and Public Policy at the University of Wyoming.In fact, it’s fallen for several years as utilities have switched to cheaper natural gas. That means existing coal reserves have grown bigger.“The coal market is so weak,” Godby says, “and some companies are coming out of bankruptcy.” He says they simply don’t have the cash to make the enormous investment required to lease federal land for future coal production.Godby says the decline in coal leasing — and the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars a year in royalties — has been painful for Wyoming. The state had been using the money to build new schools, but is now facing a large budget deficit.The social cost of carbonThe “social cost of carbon” is another Obama-era policy that directed government agencies to factor in the effects of climate change on their rule-making. It essentially put a price tag on carbon emissions and told agencies to factor that price tag in when making a regulation. The current cost is $36 per metric ton.Trump is expected to try to neuter the policy by directing the EPA to lower that cost to the point where it won’t have much weight in policy-making. An all-out elimination of the cost would likely have left the administration with weaker legal standing should it be challenged in court.The Trump administration is aiming to cut federal climate change efforts across government. Trump’s budget called for steep cuts to climate change research, domestic programs to combat climate change and funding for international climate efforts.Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget, has told reporters that federal funding to fight climate change is “a waste of your money.”Copyright 2017 NPR.

first_imgBefore YouTube or Facebook or anything else you’d recognize as the modern internet, we had Flash. Newgrounds, AlbinoBlackSheep, Ebaum’s World, and countless other sites hosted abrasive, punk-inspired cartoons and games. Since the early aughties, Flash has all but disappeared. Sped along by companies such as Apple refusing to support it over valid safety concerns, the Flash days of the web are a faint memory for most.Award-winning documentarian Justin Zimmerman didn’t want to let one of the most culturally significant pieces of the early web disappear without a proper send-off. He’s enlisted the help of some of the biggest names in Flash animation for a new documentary: Gone in a Flash.Zimmerman wants to focus on the impact Flash had, how people used it to tell stories, how it’s been archived and how the pioneers of the form helped make the internet a place “worth visiting.” If you’re like me, you’ll no doubt fondly remember the era from childhood. Before I had a computer of my own, I’d ask to see friends just so we could binge-watch the latest Group X videos, memorize the Llama song, or rewatch the end of the world. In hindsight, the humor was pretty crude, but I’d be lying if I didn’t still feel like I was a part of something way back when.Given Zimmerman’s decade-long history in film, it seems like the project is solid. For the nostalgic interested in a look at how these internet punks changed the world, Gone in a Flash has a Kickstarter asking for a relatively paltry sum of $45,000 with most of the money going to art, music, and travel expenses for interviews.In the meantime, let’s pour one out for Strong Bad.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today sharpened her attack on the BJP over the draft National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam, accusing the party of playing vote-bank politics, while also warning that the issue will “destroy” India’s relationship with Bangladesh. She said only one per cent of the 40 lakh residents, whose names are missing from the draft NRC, could be infiltrators, but people are being “harassed” in the name of infiltrators. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life She said she has appealed to all opposition parties to send their delegation to Assam. The TMC chief said she has also urged former BJP leader Yashwant Sinha to visit the state. She said India has very good relations with Bangladesh. “The NRC will destroy relationship between India and Bangladesh. Out of 40 lakh people whose names are not in the list of NRC, only one per cent could be illegal infiltrators. But the BJP is trying to show that all those not included (in NRC) are infiltrators,” she told reporters at the Parliament. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killed Yesterday, she had alleged that the NRC exercise in Assam was done with a “political motive” to divide people and warned that it would lead to bloodbath and a civil war in the country. “Bangladesh is not a terrorist country. After Independence, many people from Pakistan came to Gujarat, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab. From Bangladesh too, people came to Tripura, West Bengal, Bihar and many other states. They are not infiltrators or terrorists. Is it a crime that Bangladesh and we (West Bengal) share the same mother tongue? They (the Centre) think, anybody who speaks Bangla is a Bangladeshi” she said. Her comments come in the backdrop of Assam government publishing the draft NRC on July 30. The draft excludes 40 lakh people from the list. “The BJP is playing vote bank politics. The NRC will affect the whole world. Managing the borders is a responsibility of the Centre,” she said. “Central forces see how many infiltrators are crossing into the country. But in the name of infiltrators, they (the Centre) are harassing people. I have appealed to all opposition parties to send their delegation to Assam. I have also urged Yashwant Sinha to go to Assam,” she said.last_img read more

first_imgFrom the print editionGUATEMALA CITY – Retired Guatemalan Col. Byron Disrael Lima Estrada was released from prison Monday after serving more than half of a 20-year sentence for participating in the murder of Catholic Bishop Juan Gerardi on April 26, 1998. Lima, 77, arrived in court Monday in a wheelchair to sign paperwork preceding his release. During the process, the retired military official criticized his country’s justice system and said he was innocent of the charges that landed him in jail for more than a decade. Last Friday, Judge Javier Sotomora ordered Lima’s early release for good behavior during his prison stint, although in 2008, Lima was hospitalized in the Military Medical Center for heart complications. The retired colonel was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2000, along with his son, Byron Lima Oliva, also a former member of the military. Both men were convicted of plotting and carrying out the bishop’s murder, along with catholic priest Mario Orantes, who is also serving a 20-year sentence. A third military man, specialist Obdulio Villanueva, also was convicted and sent to prison for the crime. He was later killed during a prison riot. “I am innocent of these charges, just like my son,” Lima Estrada told journalists before leaving the courtroom in downtown Guatemala City. Gerardi, founder of the Guatemalan Archbishop’s Human Rights Office, was bludgeoned to death in the garage of his parish residence at San Sebastián Church, just 200 meters from the Presidential Palace in the capital. His murder occurred just three days after he published a report, “Recovering Guatemala’s Historical Memory: Never Again,” which documented more than 50,000 human rights violations committed during the Guatemalan armed conflict from 1960-1996. Most of the crimes were attributed to the armed forces. Guatemala signed peace accords in 1996 that ended the civil conflict, which claimed a quarter of a million lives.  Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more

first_imgA new era for Pitcairn Islands Tourism is set to begin in March 2019 with the launch of a new shipping service to one of the world’s most remote tourism destinations.From 2019, Pitcairn Island will see an amazing 75% increase in available capacity via the introduction of a new service being delivered by MV Bravo Supporter, under charter to the Pitcairn Islands Government.The new schedule will see 21 passenger sailings to the island per annum, up from 12, together with increased opportunities for special interest cruises and charters.Making the announcement, Pitcairn Travel Coordinator, Heather Menzies said, “The new service brings a modern vessel with 6 twin berth passenger cabins complete with en-suites, meaning that passengers will travel in comfort and style. And the 75% increase in available voyages each year will increase our attractiveness as a destination because tourists will at last be able to choose dates that work for them.”“MV Bravo Supporter will be based in Pitcairn waters enabling us to facilitate charters and develop new itineraries that include the rest of our beautiful island group. We expect strong interest in itineraries that include World Heritage site Henderson Island as part of a Pitcairn Islands package, and discerning tourists will also welcome the opportunity to explore beautiful Oeno Island and the unique underwater experiences available at Ducie Island.”“To complement the new service, we are launching a range of new initiatives and these will be announced over the coming weeks” Menzies added.Located halfway between New Zealand and Peru, Pitcairn has been home to the descendants of the HMAV Bounty mutineers since 1790 and remains one of the most remote and undiscovered tourism destinations in the world. The new shipping service will provide visitors with increased options to visit this fascinating and remote destination.Access to Pitcairn’s shipping service is via Mangareva in French Polynesia, a 4-hour flight from the capital, Papeete.  The services are timed to meet the weekly Tuesday flight at Mangareva.For more information on the new shipping schedule visit www.visitpitcairn.pn-END-ABOUT THE PITCAIRN ISLANDS The Pitcairn Islands are a group of four islands in the southern Pacific Ocean that comprise the last remaining British Overseas Territory in the Pacific. Only Pitcairn Island, the second largest, is inhabited. Located halfway between New Zealand and Peru, with a lush and fertile climate, Pitcairn has a colourful history. In 1789 Fletcher Christian led a mutiny on the English vessel, HMAV Bounty and, several months later, together with 8 fellow mutineers and 19 Polynesians, sailed the ship to Pitcairn Island, one of the most remote and isolated islands in the world.  By 1808, when the tiny colony was rediscovered, all but one of the mutineers and all the Polynesian men had died. The surviving mutineer, John Adams, eleven Polynesian women and twenty-five children remained. Today, almost all of the 50 or so inhabitants of Pitcairn are direct descendants of the Bounty mutineers and their Polynesian consorts.  For more information visit: www.visitpitcairn.pn In September 2018, Opstad Shipping of Norway, signed a contract with the Government of the Pitcairn Islands to provide a Passenger and Cargo service for the Island with MV Bravo Supporter.
