Toronto stock index up modestly as Wall Street hits another record high

TORONTO — North American markets nudged higher Wednesday as the U.S. Federal Reserve’s latest meeting minutes signalled a December rate hike is still on track.The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was up 30.04 points to 15,800.40.In New York, it was another record-setting day on Wall Street, despite meagre market movements.The Dow Jones industrial average added 42.21 points at 22,872.89, the S&P 500 index inched up 4.60 points at 2,555.24 and the Nasdaq composite index gained 16.30 points to 6,603.55.Wednesday’s release of the Fed’s September meeting minutes showed that although officials struggled to come to term with persistently low inflation, some were worried that low unemployment could result in a quick rebound in inflation, and a third rate hike was needed. The central banking system previously raised rates in June and March.Still, this release signalled nothing new in terms of market expectations, said Macan Nia, a senior investment strategist at Manulife Investments.“The Fed minutes alluded to the likelihood of an increase in December by 25 basis points, that we believe has already been priced into the market,” he said.Nia added market participants were also watching Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump closely, but there were little signals from their press conference on Wednesday.“We’re all very interested to see the outcome in terms of the NAFTA negotiation,” he said.”We’re all sitting back and waiting to see more concrete details in terms of proposals.”Meanwhile in corporate news, shares of licensed marijuana producer Canopy Growth Corp. (TSX:WEED) rose 5.92 per cent Wednesday, on news of a tie-up with a B.C. greenhouse operator which would more than double its production footprint to about 2.3 million square feet.In commodities, the November crude contract added 38 cents to US$51.30 per barrel and the November natural gas contract was unchanged at US$2.89 per mmBTU.The December gold contract was down $4.90 to US$1,288.90 an ounce and the December copper contract was up four cents to US$3.10 a pound.The Canadian dollar was trading at an average price of 80.01 cents US, up 0.02 of a cent. read more

Business as usual in Canada despite restructuring in US Suzuki Canada

by Hugh McKenna, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 6, 2012 12:16 pm MDT ‘Business as usual’ in Canada despite restructuring in U.S.: Suzuki Canada RICHMOND HILL, Ont. – It remains “business as usual” for Suzuki in Canada despite a decision by its counterpart in the United States to discontinue auto sales and seek court protection from its creditors while it focuses on other products.“Suzuki Canada has no current plans to discontinue automobile sales in Canada nor are we contemplating any form of court-supervised restructuring as they have done in the United States,” Suzuki Canada spokesman Bill Porter said in an interview Tuesday.Porter said Suzuki Canada is emphazing the fact that the two companies are not connected and that the news in the United States is not expected to have any impact on Suzuki’s Canadian operations.“Our sales are up over last year so its business as usual in Canada, that’s the message we’ve given to our dealers and certainly to our customers as well. No change at all.”American Suzuki Motor Corp. filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. bankruptcy law and said it will cease selling automobiles in the U.S. as part of a plan to restructure its business.The company, based in Brea, Calif., is the sole distributor of Suzuki Motor Co. vehicles in the continental United States. It intends to concentrate on selling Suzuki motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and marine outboard engines once it exits bankruptcy protection, it said.In documents filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Central District of California, the company estimated that its debts and liabilities range from at least $100 million to as much as $500 million.It has enough cash to operate during the restructuring and intends to honour all car warranties and buyback agreements. Meanwhile, it will work with its car dealerships to help them transition into parts-and-service operations. In some cases, the dealerships will be shuttered, it said.American Suzuki said it was exiting the car business because of slow sales, unfavourable foreign exchange rates and high costs due to U.S. regulatory requirements.However, that has not been a problem in Canada, Porter said.“We just had a dealer meeting in September and we’re experiencing right now, the last five months, very successful sales,” said Porter, senior vice-president, sales and marketing.The company’s approximately 60 automobile dealerships across Canada are currently selling a little over 500 vehicles a month, up from around 400 a month last year.“So last year we sold about 5,000 cars so we’re on track to do more than that this year in Canada and, you know of course, . . . we are very prominent in the motorcycle and ATV and marine divisions as well.”— With files from The Associated Press read more

UN rights expert urges durable solutions for Haitis displaced vulnerable

Four years after the massive earthquake that devastated Haiti, it is time to move from a largely humanitarian approach to a development based drive, a United Nations human rights expert said today, while calling for durable solutions for the internally displaced and the vulnerable segments of the population of the island nation.“It is high time to focus on a development approach for the achievement of durable solutions for the displaced,” said the Chaloka Beyani, UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights of internally displaced persons (IDPs) at the end of his first mission to Haiti. “Durable solutions are reached only when the needs related to displacement no longer exist, which is medium to long term complex development led process for all IDPs and not just those living in camps or sites,” he said in a press release detailing his recently completed week-long mission, which included visits to IDP camps and sites as well as the Canaan neighbourhood in Port-au-Prince. Stressing that closing IDP camps by itself does not mean that durable solutions for them have been found, Mr. Beyani stressed that although the number of those displaced has decreased from 1.5 million after the earthquake to the rough official number of 100,000 today, “much more needs to be done.” In order to achieve that, he recommended carrying out a needs assessment to know the durable solution requirements of different categories of all IDPs, verify the location of those who live outside of camps, and carry out a survey of their intent to know which durable solutions would work for them on the basis of consultation and participation. “The achievement of durable solutions requires development opportunities in the country as a whole, rule of law and a comprehensive housing policy that also targets IDPs,” Mr. Beyani highlighted. “The rental subsidy policy which aims to help IDPs leave camps and find a place to rent in the neighbourhoods is a transitional measure to decongest the camps,” he said. “To be sustainable, this policy must be linked to livelihoods and income-generating activities and benefit the entire community where IDPs are settled, including through enhanced access to basic services.” Mr. Beyani welcomed the creation of sectorial platforms and inter-ministerial committees to coordinate development activities, but cautioned that these measures should also be taken to ensure that sectoral policies in all key areas such as water, sanitation, health, education, employment and agriculture extend to IDPs as well. “Humanitarian support should continue in the remaining camps or sites to address the dire living conditions of some of the IDPs and to respond to their basic needs, particularly water and sanitation, which are critical to public health,” he said, calling for special protection for IDPs to continue into the development phase, especially for women and children. The Government of Haiti, the Special Rapporteur emphasized, has the primary responsibility to work towards development based approaches to durable solutions for IDPs and the vulnerable population at large, “which will enable the integration of IDPs in urban and rural neighbourhoods where they can resume their normal lives as citizens of Haiti, without discrimination on account of their situation.” Such primary responsibility includes putting relevant policies, effective coordination of structures and mechanisms for achieving solutions, for instance resolution of issues affecting access to land and property, housing, justice, including for women. “The current election registration exercise should also include IDPs as equal citizens to ensure they can vote and participate in the public life of the country,” Mr. Beyani noted. read more

Revealed The new calorie limits on every common food to reduce obesity

The plans, drawn up by Public Health England (PHE), suggest a limit of 544 calories for any convenience meal – far below many of those sold today. Draft proposals seen by The Telegraph set out detailed caps for ready meals, sandwiches and even portions of vegetables served across the country. The efforts are part of a Government childhood obesity strategy which promises to cut… Calorie limits will be imposed on thousands of foods sold in supermarkets and restaurants in a bid to combat obesity. Sandwiches and main meal salads would be capped at 550 calories, with a limit of 951 calories for restaurant main courses, and varying limits for other specific foods depending on where they are consumed. read more

PPP calls out Govt for clandestine creation of NDCs in Region

The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) is calling out the incumbent Administration after it created two new Neighbourhood Democratic Councils (NDCs) in Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo), without even consulting the residents as part of the ‘free and informed consent’ process.Communities Minister Ronald BulkanAccording to the Party on Tuesday, Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan surreptitiously gazetted an order on June 1, 2018, creating the Aranaputa/Upper Burro and Annai, Region Nine NDCs.“Most worrisome is that this Order was only posted on the Official Gazette website a week later and up to that point neither Minister Bulkan, who signed the Order, nor the Vice President and Minister of Indigenous Affairs, Sydney Allicock, had made any public announcement concerning these new NDCs.”The PPP said that in 2016, the Communities Minister issued an Order declaring Aranaputa an NDC in Region Nine, but this is in an area where there is no titled land. “However, this was a controversial move as there was little or no consultation with the community or the surrounding titled communities.”The Party recalled that Bulkan had admitted during the 2018 Budget debate that he had set up a council in Aranaputa without the involvement of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM). The Party added that the Minister had also admitted that the Chairperson and Deputy Chair were being paid from the Toshaos budgetary allocation for Region Nine.Noting that an NDC has to comprise more than one People’s Cooperative Unit, the Party said that this new Order terminates the previous Order.According to the PPP, it also increases the territory in the Aranaputa NDC to include two People’s Cooperative Units, with a six-member council. “But the most egregious aspect of these Orders is the establishment of the new Annai NDC … now includes a very large territory with several titled Amerindian communities – Annai, Rupertee, Kwatamang, Wowetta and Surama.The new NDC will have 12 council members. However, most of these titled villages just completed their elections for Toshaos and Amerindian Village Councils.”“None of these communities were consulted in keeping with the international policy of ‘Free Prior and Informed Consent’ included in the Amerindian Act. As of June 8, 2018, the Regional Democratic Council, the North Rupununi Development Board, and the Amerindian Village Councils and communities in these areas were totally unaware of this development” said the PPP in a press statement.The Party outlined a number of issues, including the complete lack of progress in issuing communal titles, disparaging comments from Presidential Advisor Eric Phillips, the establishment of the Land Commission of Inquiry and the Government’s refusal to implement Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS) initiatives aimed at Indigenous development.“The end result is that applications for titles and extension of lands to Amerindian peoples and the demarcation of titled lands are now virtually at a stand-still. Whilst the (Amerindian Development Fund) seems to have become susceptible to ‘cherry-picking’ by the Government as to which villages will receive their project funds. The slowing down of all the initiatives of the LCDS, and, in particular the (Amerindian Titling Project) is a major cause of concern, especially since US$2 million of the available US$10 million has been spent in the last three years and produced nothing.”“Other actions by the Government leave no doubt as to its policy with regard to Amerindian rights and communal titles, the termination of 1972 Amerindian Community Service Officers in July 2015; the closure and termination of all staff in the ALT of the Ministry of the Presidency in late 2015, new staff for the ALT Unit were hired over a year later; the consistent violation of ‘Free Prior and Informed Consent’ on issues affecting Amerindian communities; the worsening socio-economic conditions and shortage of drugs and medical supplies in these interior areas, to name a few,” the PPP explained.

Running on water

first_imgOn Sunday 13 July, while Greek and Australian runners and cyclists are hitting the road for 42 kilometres to raise awareness of the plight of Greece’s stray animals, there will also be a swimmer gliding along the coast towards the finish line. Yes, a swimmer! The Penny Marathon (PM), which takes place every year in Athens and Sydney is an event that not only takes place on the same day in the northern and southern hemispheres of the globe, but now both on land and in the sea.This is the first time finswimmer Nicole Tryfona will participate. The PM team recently read about Nicole’s exceptional accomplishment where she swam for 11.5 consecutive hours (18 nautical miles) from mainland Greece to the island of Corfu to raise money for her local animal shelter, The Ark. Within moments of an online conversation between PM and the swimmer, Nicole was offering to swim over five hours (almost 17 kilometres) from Alimos to Vouliagmeni in Athens to lend her support to PM. Nicole will be joined by Vangelis Pappas and John Spinoulas in a klepper kayak, who will supervise the swim in these high-traffic waters. The Penny Marathon raises awareness of the plight of stray, abused and neglected cats and dogs in Greece and Australia. It is sponsored by Neos Kosmos, Lea’s World Travel and Kae International Euromovers. The swim is supported by Action 3.

Lateseason fire burning near Sutton

first_imgSurface fuels burn in the Moose Creek Fire late Saturday afternoon near Sutton. The fire is now estimated at 216 acres and there are 50 personnel working to suppress it. (Photo by Sarah Saarloos/Alaska Division of Forestry)A late-season fire near near Sutton is keeping fire crews on their toes.Listen Now The Moose Creek Fire was reported early Saturday morning, and as of Sunday afternoon is charted at around 300 acres.Tim Mowry is a public information officer for the Alaska Division of Forestry.He says most of the firefighting efforts are focused on the western perimeter, which is the most active.“It’s been a real challenge with cold conditions – we’ve got hoses freezing up, pumps freezing up – and it’s nasty, nasty conditions,” Mowry said. “Twenty to 30 mile an hour winds that helping to drive this fire and just making it miserable for our guys out there fighting it.”Mowry says about 50 personnel from nearly every agency with firefighting resources in the state are working the blaze:“We’ve got the Division of Forestry, the Alaska Fire Service, U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service,” he said. “We really had to beat the bushes to get personnel to get on this fire because we laid most of our personnel off, seeing as it is mid-October and fire season is typically over by now.”Multiple local fire departments have also been called into action, and Mowry says helicopters and heavy equipment are also in use.A map showing the perimeter of the 216-acre Moose Creek Fire as of 8 p.m. Saturday. (Map by the Alaska Division of Forestry)The Glenn Highway has remained open and no evacuation orders have been issued, but Mowry says driver should be cautious.“There are gonna be a lot of firefighting personnel and firefighting equipment on the road,” he said.The Palmer Correctional Center was under an evacuation advisory.Because the Department of Corrections was already planning on closing the facility within the next few weeks, DoC spokesperson Corey Allen-Young says the department opted to move prisoners ahead of schedule to other correctional facilities around Southcentral and the Kenai Peninsula.The Moose Creek Fire is burning about 5 miles south of Sutton.UPDATE: 10/17 at 3 p.m. by Ellen LockyerA 300 acre wildfire near Sutton came dangerously close to the Glenn Highway Monday morning. The highway was temporarily closed at mile 54 while firefighting crews used a bulldozer to construct a fire line to prevent the flames from reaching the road.The highway was reopened around 11 am, but motorists are asked to expect delays due to smoke and firefighting crews along the road between mile 54 and 58.Meanwhile, windy conditions are thwarting fire crews efforts to contain the Moose Creek blaze.Fire information officer Tim Mowry said most of the fire fighting efforts are focused on the western perimeter, which is the most active.“It’s been a real challenge with cold conditions – we’ve got hoses freezing up, pumps freezing up – and it’s nasty, nasty conditions, you know 20-30 mile an hour winds that helping to drive this fire and just making it miserable for our guys out there fighting it,” Mowry said.About 50 additional firefighters are being brought in Monday to support the effort. The state division of forestry had laid off most fire crews at the usual end of the summer fire season, so personnel from the Alaska Air National Guard and from the BLM Alaska Fire Service have been called in to help local crews.The Moose Creek Fire was reported early Saturday morning. Strong winds and cold temperatures in the Mat Su during the past three days have hampered firefighting efforts. The high winds have caused spot fires produced by flying embers. And winds have knocked out power in some areas, sparking at least one new fire Monday. Norm MacDonald is a state fire division manager.“We’ve had several other fires this morning, last night. And we have a new five acre fire up by King River, just past Sutton, we’re working on right now,” MacDonald said. “We’ve got two helicopters and a couple of engines on that fire, caused by a downed power line.”This most recent fire is about 10 miles from the Moose Creek blaze. Winds are expected to subside by tomorrow, giving crews a better chance to contain the fires.last_img read more

Fractal wire patterns enhance stretchability of electronic devices

first_img The researchers, Jonathan A. Fan, et al., from institutions in the US, China, Korea, and Singapore, have published a paper on the benefits of fractal wire patterns for stretchable electronics in a recent issue of Nature Communications.In general, a main challenge in designing stretchable electronics is maintaining good electronic functionality while enabling stretching of up to twice the normal device size. Some of the most successful approaches to achieving both of these goals involve combining two separate components: a hard component that provides high conductivity and a soft component that provides mechanical stretchability. The dual-component nature of these devices raises the question of how hard and soft materials can be ideally integrated.The results of the new study show that fractal patterns offer a promising approach to hard-soft materials integration, and suggest that fractal patterns can influence the mechanical properties of 2D materials. In the new devices, the hard metal wires are engineered into fractal designs and then bonded to soft elastomers.”We have established an approach, with general utility, for configuring hard materials with soft ones, in ways that have immediate relevance in all areas of stretchable electronics,” coauthor John Rogers, Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, told Phys.org. “The resulting properties also provide advanced capabilities in stretchable/conformal devices and sensors, not only electronic, but photonic, optoelectronic and photovoltaic as well.” (Phys.org) —Fractals—patterns defined by their scale-invariance that makes them look the same on large scales as they do on small scales—are found in nature everywhere from snowflakes to broccoli to the beating of the heart. In a new study, researchers have demonstrated that metal wires patterned in various fractal motifs, when integrated into elastic materials, enable highly stretchable electronic devices. The fractal wire patterns could lead to a variety of new devices, such as biomedical sensors that can be attached to the skin and that have unique properties such as invisibility under magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. This control provided by fractal patterns could allow researchers to tailor stretchable electronics devices for different applications, depending on the type of stretching required. One potential application is “epidermal electronics,” or skin-mounted sensors and actuators. A common example is electrodes, which measure electrophysiological processes in the brain, heart and muscle. To optimize the level of connectivity, the electrodes must conform to the skin, which has a stretchability of up to 20%. The researchers found that electrodes made with the Greek cross fractal pattern offer a high connectivity, stretchability, and robustness that enables them to compare favorably to conventional gel-based electrodes.Fractal patterns could also have applications for radio-frequency devices, which could enable electrodes that are compatible with MRI scans. The researchers performed MRI experiments comparing electrodes made from three types of fractal patterns, two variants of serpentine (non-fractal) patterns, a pattern consisting of superimposed vertical and horizontal lines, and no pattern. While the serpentine patterns and unpatterned samples contained shadows that distorted the images, the fractal samples showed no shadows or distortion. The researchers attribute this difference to the highly interconnected closed loops of metal in the serpentine patterns; in contrast, the fractals do not contain closed loops, so they do not couple to RF radiation and are therefore invisible under MRI. The results suggest that fractal patterns offer a promising route to future MRI-compatible skin-mounted or implanted electrodes and other electronic devices.In the future, the researchers plan to investigate further applications of fractals in electronics.”We are now exploiting these same ideas to move from electrodes and test structures of silicon, to active materials for stretchable LEDs and solar cells, with a next goal of producing full functional systems in these types of layouts,” Rogers said.

DOI: 10.1038/ncomms4266 Journal information: Nature Communications Fractal plumage indicates bird fitness In their experiments, the researchers investigated several different fractal patterns, including Peano, Greek cross, Vicsek, and others. They found that these fractal patterns offer key advantages over other patterns, such as periodic loops and serpentine shapes investigated in previous studies. With the Peano pattern, for example, the researchers showed that modifying the orientation of the pattern enhances the material’s elastic strain in one or more selected directions, and allows the pattern to support different types of deformations. Previously explored wire patterns do not offer the ability to control the strain and deformation in these ways. © 2014 Phys.org. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Global roadmap for better understanding space weather released

first_img Explore further “Ongoing solar missions have given us guidance on optimal solar surface observations to support modeling so that improved estimates on the CME magnetic structure and energy content, as well as the propagation in the heliosphere can be achieved,” the researchers wrote in the report.The main goal is to obtain forecasts more than 12 hours ahead of the magnetic structure of incoming CMEs and their impact in geospace to improve alerts for geomagnetic disturbances.According to the report authors, ground- and space-based instrumentation should be increased to complement satellite data of the magnetospheric and ionospheric variability to cover gaps.The roadmap emphasizes the need for coordinated and complementary actions to better shield society from the effects of extreme solar activity. The scientists note that space weather is a real and permanent hazard to our civilizations that needs to be addressed by combining scientific research with engineering ingenuity. The problem should be perceived as still escalating, having in mind that with advancements in technology, society becomes more vulnerable to solar events.Conclusions from the report promise more accurate space weather forecasting and offer hope of future advancements in the understanding of the solar phenomena. The scientists predict that within the span of the next five to 10 years, we will see major progress regarding our comprehension of these space events and our ability to react to the sun’s violent lifecycle.The Committee on Space Research (COSPAR), established in 1958, is an interdisciplinary scientific body concerned with progress on an international scale of all kinds of scientific investigations carried out with space vehicles, rockets and balloons.The International Living With a Star (ILWS), established in 2002, is an international organization dedicated to the advancement of space weather science missions and research. Nation’s first operational satellite in deep space reaches final orbit (c) 2015 Phys.org The authors of the plan strongly emphasize that battling the effects of extreme solar activity is an international challenge. Changes in the sun’s magnetic field affect the whole planet, thus worldwide observations and substantial resources are needed to address the problem.Space weather impacts numerous aspects of our lives, including Earth’s climate, satellites, navigation systems, radio communications, and power grid. Severe space storms could result in perturbations in the electric power system and could cause loss of satellites. Therefore, extreme solar events could be catastrophic with severe consequences for millions of people.”Mitigating against the impacts of space weather can be improved by designing less susceptible, more resilient technologies, combined with better environmental knowledge and more reliable forecasts,” the report reads. “This roadmap outlines how we can achieve deeper understanding and better forecasts, recognizing that the expectations for space weather information differ between societal sectors, and that capabilities to observe or model space weather phenomena depend on available and anticipated technologies.”The scientists behind the roadmap recommend the extensive use of current spacecraft in service, which are designed to study the sun’s activity. The fleet of active space observatories includes NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and Japanese Hinode, providing solar magnetic maps. Solar coronagraphy acquired by NASA/ESA SOHO spacecraft and NASA’s STEREO probes, is also essential for forecast purposes. Moreover, measurements of the solar-wind plasma and magnetic field delivered by NASA’s Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) satellite and its successor, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) DSCOVR probe will bring crucial data as well.These observations made by numerous scientific spacecraft enable estimation of arrival times of the various solar events. For example, huge explosions of magnetic field and plasma from the sun’s corona, known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs), can reach Earth in as little as 14 to 17 hours. When CMEs impact the Earth’s magnetosphere, they are responsible for geomagnetic storms and enhanced aurorae. In order to predict the strength of the resulting geomagnetic storm, estimates of the magnetic field strength and direction are important. At the present time, the magnetic field cannot be determined until it is measured as the CME passes over a monitoring satellite.

Use code XMLPP and get it for $1839 down from $2602.86.Also on promotion, OnePlus 5T!– Originally published on December, 18.  While Xiaomi may be giving some long established companies a run for their money with its smartphones, it’s actually its other products that continue to win consumer love and appreciation. From tiny, little robots doing the cleaning for you to the small and sleek projectors bringing cinema right inside your living room. Xiaomi’s limited-edition Mi Laser Projector is one of those products that have exceeded the company’s expectations in the matter of a few months.The Short Throw Mi Laser Projector has been compared with the likes of Sony and Espon’s offerings that cost over $3,000 a pop. Considering these eventually replace your high-end flat panel TVs, bringing cinema to your home, they are becoming increasingly popular for offering amazing performance and even bigger image size. However, shelling out over $3,000 takes a leap of faith and more… This is where Xiaomi comes in. Thanks to how the local companies continue to receive subsidies in China, they are able to introduce similar – if not better – products at affordable rates. Xiaomi’s Mi Laser Projector that has been winning some design awards internationally is now available at even more reduced rates.Christmas Deal: Get the Xiaomi Mi Short Throw 5000 ANSI Lumens Projector for $1,839 using promo code ‘XMLPP’The Mi Laser Projector features ALPD 3.0 laser light source technology developed by a company (Appotronics) that is behind the laser tech in 90% of China’s movie theaters – yep, this one literally brings cinema to your home. The projector also utilizes Xiaomi’s own custom digital light processing (DLP) solution created by Texas Instruments. Share Tweet Submit “This is the world’s first ultra-short focal laser projection with ALPD technology that delivers up to 150-inch Full HD at a distance of 50 cm with a high contrast ratio of 1500 lumens and 3000: 1 and a product life of 20,000 hours,” Xiaomi boasts. “This high-tech product uses a compact and minimal “box” design language, and meticulous maintenance of the host and Bluetooth remote control style. Control your host anywhere in the room, and voice assistants can find programs quickly or provide other interactive ways to bring in a new viewing experience.”Laser Projectors may not be new, but Xiaomi is certainly helping consumers get the technology at a much affordable rate. With built-in speakers, wide color gamut, 150-inch large projection size, no wiring, and ALPD 3.0 laser light source technology, the Xiaomi Mi Laser Projector remains the best choice in its category. The product has also won the 2017 Japan Design Excellence Award, among several other awards.last_img read more

A year away Olympic organizers counting on sun and samba

first_imgTwo largely government-funded developments are a subway extension from central Rio into Barra da Tijuca — the heart of the games — and rapid transit bus lines that reach many corners of the city. The subway line extension faces a tight deadline.“The subway line is going to be delivered just before the games, so of course we’re worried about that,” said Sidney Levy, CEO of the organizing committee.Part of the Olympic Park will serve afterward as Brazil’s Olympic training center. A section of the Olympic Park will become residential space. Some of that space has yet to be vacated with residents in a slum called Vila Autodromo holding out for better compensation.___CRIMEStreet crime in Rio has spiked as drug traffickers in the city’s slums — known as favelas — fight back against police and soldiers trying to “pacify” the neighborhoods. Muggings are increasing in the upscale south and west of the city, which will host most of the Olympics. A cyclist was recently stabbed to death at the Olympic rowing venue.City officials are confident the problems won’t leak over to the Olympics.“The World Cup was organized without any major incidents, and we expect that this will be the same for the games,” said Christophe Dubi, Olympic Games Executive Director. ___INSPIRATIONPresident Dilma Rousseff, whose popularity has plunged as the country slides in recession, said recently she will be more involved in Olympic preparations. She’s hoping the Olympics will improve the country’s mood, and boost her poll numbers.Levy says the games should inspire Brazilians, and they could use some.State-run oil company Petrobras lost $2.1 billion in a kickback scheme that saw firm executives take bribes for awarding inflated contracts. In June, police arrested the CEOs of two of Brazil’s largest construction companies, including the head of Odebrecht, which helped build many World Cup and Olympic venues.Levy, the CEO, has repeated often that Rio is running clean games devoid of corruption.___CONSTRUCTIONA last-minute rush seems inevitable, and late work is sure to drive up costs.Levy seems relaxed, particularly with the two biggest stadiums — both soccer facilities — already constructed.“We’re not building anything big,” he said. “We’re not building a cathedral.”A study by Said Business School at Oxford University of Olympic Games since 1960 showed each one had cost overruns.“No other type of megaproject is this consistent regarding cost overrun,” authors Bent Flyvberg and Allison Stewart wrote. “Other project types are typically on budget from time to time, but not the Olympics.” The Olympic Park which will host Rio’s 2016 Olympics is seen under construction in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Monday, July 27, 2015. The Olympics will offer 28 sports, 300 events, 10,500 athletes and, with the exception of five football venues, it’s all packed into Rio for 17 days. The Paralympics add two more weeks, and thousands more athletes. (AP Photo/Leo Correa) Parents, stop beating yourself up Comments   Share   Now come the Summer Games, which are more complex and put Brazil under scrutiny again.Instead of a one-month tournament with 730 players, the 16-day Olympics feature 28 sports, 300 events and 10,500 athletes; almost all in a metropolitan area of about 12 million people.Construction got off to a slow start. And so did ticket sales.“If you compare our numbers with the classic London numbers, you’re going to see that we got off a little late,” said Mario Andrada, spokesman for the Rio Olympics. He called Brazilians “last-minute people.”“But there’s no doubt in our minds that we are going to sell out the tickets.”It will take years to know if the Olympics improved life for Cariocas, as Rio residents are known. And if so, who profited the most from spending $12 billion in public and private money.The head of the local organizing committee Carlos Nuzman says Rio will be the Olympic city with the “greatest transformation,” surpassing Tokyo in 1964 and Barcelona in 1992.An Olympics can change a city’s reputation for good or bad.Beijing showcased a rising power, but outsiders also glimpsed the control of an authoritarian state. Athens took a beating for preparations __ similar to Rio — and some of Greece’s financial problems are linked Olympic spending.

Rio officials promised cleaning the bay would be an Olympic legacy. But Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes has said that won’t happen. A dramatic photo in the Rio newspaper O Globo recently showed trash wrapped around the tail of a dolphin in the bay.Rio hopes to get by with stopgaps; a fleet of rubbish collection boats and barricades built where garbage gushes in from hilltop slums.Some sailors competing in test events in Rio have called Guanabara Bay “an open sewer,” and many have tried to minimize contact with the water to avoid illnesses.“I don’t think I would go swimming in that lagoon,” said Matt Smith, head of the World Rowing Federation.___LEGACY PROJECTSThe new Olympic golf course and the athletes’ village will become luxury real estate develpments after the Olympics. The units at the golf course start at about $2 million. The projects involve public and private money, with much of the income going to the private developers.

Quilton Australian Dunny Derby Makes No2 A No1 Priority

first_imgQuilton Australian Dunny Derby Makes No.2 A No.1 PriorityThe race to the thunderbox is on as the famous Quilton Australian Dunny Derby makes its comeback at Outback Festival 2019 in collaboration with Queensland Health.A firm crowd favourite, the Quilton Australian Dunny Derby is a fun and frivolous challenge with an important message. Through a partnership with Queensland Health, the “Make No.2 Your No.1 Priority” state campaign aims to increase participation in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program.Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young is proud to support an iconic regional event and reminds Queenslanders over the age of 50 to make bowel screening a priority.“Partnerships like this one allow Queensland Health to further engage with Queenslanders on important issues like bowel cancer screening” she said.“If you’re heading to the festival, keep an eye out for Queensland Health’s “Make No.2 your No.1 priority” information stall and chat with my staff about Australia’s second highest cause of cancer deaths, bowel cancer, and the benefits of bowel screening.”“I strongly encourage all Queenslanders aged 50 to 74 to look out for the free bowel cancer screening kit in the mail and take the time to complete the test to help detect early signs of bowel cancer. With early detection, 9 out of 10 people can be successfully treated”The famous Quilton Australian Dunny Derby is a hilarious event that involves teams of five pulling and pushing the thunderbox (dunny) through a 200 metre course, all competing for a $5,000 AUD prize pool.Special awards are given to the best dressed team and decorated thunderbox, and the winner of the “Constipation Stakes” (the best of the losers!).“Having made quite the stir in previous years, the event is attracting international attention,” explains festival coordinator, Robyn Stephens OAM. “We’ve received confirmation from a film crew from Finland and a magazine journalist and photographer from Germany who are making their way to Winton to participate and share the story of Winton’s Outback Festival with their respective homelands.”Alongside the Dunny Derby is the Mayoral Challenge which will pit the Mayors of Outback Queensland against each other to compete in what may seem a very “politically incorrect” challenge.Registrations for the event are limited and open until 29 August 2019 if not filled before – it’s first in best dressed and definitely a challenge not to be missed.Register Today CLICK HERESource = Outback Festivallast_img read more
