UN partnership with parliamentarians key to building better world – Annan


“You can help build the national consensus and bridges of international understanding that are necessary for international action,” Mr. Annan said in a message scheduled to be delivered by Jose Antonio Ocampo, Executive Secretary of the UN Economic Community of Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) to the 108th conference of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU).Today’s meeting “ushered in a new era” in the already long-standing cooperation between the UN and the IPU, Mr. Annan said, addressing the group of international lawmakers for the first time since the General Assembly granted the IPU observer status last November. That, he added, was a significant acknowledgment of the important role parliamentarians played in bringing the work of the United Nations closer to the people it serves.”The reinforcement of the relationship between our two organizations represents an important element in the effort to improve interaction between the United Nations and civil society, the Secretary-General said, noting that the assembly had also supported his intention to establish a Panel of Eminent persons on United Nations Relations with Civil Society, to be chaired by former Brazilian President Fernando Henrique Cardoso.”Parliamentarians embody the will of the people who have elected them to speak on their behalf and promote their needs and aspirations,” Mr. Annan said, adding that along with supplying a place where “the dynamism of civil society meets the responsibility of governments” to translate ideas into legalization, parliaments also had the power to ensure effective follow-up to international agreements at home.”For my part,” the Secretary-General said, “I will continue my efforts to make the United Nations an institution responsive to the peoples in whose name it was established, and to pursue our engagement with parliamentarians and other actors in civil society.” read more


Malaysia releases Kim Jong Nams body in deal ending spat with


By Joseph Sipalan and Rozanna Latiff | KUALA LUMPURA van believed to be carrying the body of Kim Jong Nam, leaves the Kuala Lumpur Hospital. Kyodo/via REUTERSMalaysia put the body of the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on a plane to Pyongyang on Thursday, in a deal that secured the release of its citizens there and ended a drawnout diplomatic spat.U.S. and South Korean intelligence sources say North Korea masterminded the deadly attack on Kim Jong Nam last month using VX nerve agent, a chemical so toxic that it is on a U.N. list of weapons of mass destruction.The attack outraged Malaysia and sparked a diplomatic row with North Korea, resulting in travel bans on both sides and a collapse in their long-standing friendly ties.Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said the nine Malaysians barred from leaving North Korea had been allowed to board a plane out, adding on Twitter that they were expected to reach Kuala Lumpur at 5 a.m. local time on Friday (2100 GMT Thursday).The Malaysians left Pyongyang in a Royal Malaysian Air Force business jet, which headed immediately west out of North Korean airspace before turning south toward Malaysia, according to flight tracking website planefinder.net.“Following the completion of the autopsy on the deceased and receipt of a letter from his family requesting the remains be returned to North Korea, the coroner has approved the release of the body,” Najib said in a statement.The statement did not mention Kim by name. Kim was assassinated at Kuala Lumpur airport on Feb 13.Earlier, sources told Reuters authorities were preparing to transport Kim’s body on Malaysia Airlines flight MH360 to Beijing. That flight lands in Beijing after midnight.The swap agreement brings to an end nearly seven weeks of diplomatic standoff between the formerly friendly countries.Najib has said the return of the nine Malaysians in Pyongyang was Malaysia’s priority.North Korea had been demanding the handover of Kim’s body and that three remaining suspects inside its embassy be returned to Pyongyang in exchange for an end to the travel ban on Malaysians, diplomatic sources have said.It was not immediately clear if the suspects were also allowed to leave Malaysia, although some local media reported that they were taking the same flight to Beijing.Kim Jong Nam, the eldest son of the late North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, had spoken out publicly against his family’s dynastic control of the isolated, nuclear-armed nation.The young, unpredictable Kim Jong Un had issued a “standing order” for his elder half-brother’s assassination, and there was a failed attempt in 2012, according to some South Korean lawmakers.RELATIONS REAFFIRMEDMalaysian police say Kim was killed by two women who smeared the super toxic nerve agent VX on his face. An Indonesian woman and a Vietnamese woman have been charged.North Korea reacted angrily when the Malaysian authorities identified North Korean suspects and sought to question others including a diplomat at their embassy in Kuala Lumpur.Pyongyang has maintained that the body was that of Kim Chol as stated in his passport, and not Kim Jong Nam.Malaysia expelled North Korea’s ambassador for being “diplomatically rude”, although Najib later said that ties with Pyongyang would not be severed, in a bid to calm relations.A statement by the North Korean government released simultaneously said both countries managed to “resolve issues arising from the death of a DPRK national” in Malaysia at a meeting in Kuala Lumpur.DPRK stands for North Korea’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.“The importance of bilateral relations was reaffirmed. In this connection, both countries agreed to positively discuss the re-introduction of the visa-free system and work toward bringing the relations to a higher level,” read the statement from North Korea.Malaysia imposed a travel ban on North Koreans leaving the Southeast Asian country in a tit-for-tat move after Pyongyang barred Malaysians from leaving its borders.Najib said on Thursday that North Koreans will now be allowed to leave Malaysia.(Additional reporting by James Pearson and Liz Lee; Writing by Praveen Menon; Editing by Nick Macfie and Hugh Lawson) Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedKim Jong-nam killing: Senior N Korea diplomat named as suspectFebruary 22, 2017In “World”Airport killing seen on CCTV, probe strains Malaysia-North Korea tiesFebruary 20, 2017In “World”Kim Jong-nam death: Malaysia police hold female suspectFebruary 15, 2017In “World” read more

Austin City Council Votes to Move Forward with Major League Soccer Stadium


first_img Share COURTESY OF PRECOURT SPORTS VENTURESAn artist’s rendering of a soccer stadium at McKalla Place in North Austin.The Austin City Council voted to move ahead in negotiations with Major League Soccer and Precourt Sports Ventures to build a 20,000-seat stadium near the Domain.The 7-4 decision came after about five hours of discussion during a special session Wednesday. Council members worked through several amendments related to parking, transportation, affordable housing and youth soccer programs. “I can’t wait until we are all wearing the same jersey,” Mayor Steve Adler said before the vote. In addition to Adler, Delia Garza, Pio Renteria, Greg Casar, Ann Kitchen, Jimmy Flannigan and Kathie Tovo voted yes. Under the deal, Precourt, which owns the Columbus Crew, would build the stadium on the property and then rent it back from the city.Precourt announced last fall that it wanted to move the MLS team from Ohio to Austin, citing poor business conditions in Columbus. Precourt initially asked for a stadium site on parkland near Lady Bird Lake, but after pushback from the community and others, it settled on McKalla Place, a 24-acre site in North Austin.The council’s vote on the stadium has created a lot of drama over the last 10 months.Council Member Leslie Pool led a charge against the proposed location, bringing other issues like affordable housing and transportation into the debate. When the deal was set for a vote in July, she asked council to consider alternative proposals for developing the McKalla Place site. Just before the vote Thursday, she added a number of amendments to the terms city staff had negotiated, forcing a vote to be postponed until today.Today’s vote is not the end of the discussion. The city must also decide if the deal will be handed over to staff for final approval or if council will get the final OK. Also unknown is when the stadium contract will be finalized and where the Crew will train and play during the next MLS season.Austin is the largest U.S. metro region without a top-tier professional sports team.last_img read more


Polytron predicts glass smartphones by end of year w Video


first_img More information: www.polytronix.com/privacyglass_tech.html Citation: Polytron predicts glass smartphones by end of year (w/ Video) (2013, February 17) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-02-polytron-glass-smartphones-year.html The phone is being showcased in its early stages; there is no software running on the prototype. The goal is to get OEMs motivated enough to consider what this technology can offer. Polytron is anticipating that handset makers will want to build products with its special glass. As the prototype reveals, not all of the phone components are invisible; one can see the batteries, camera, and cards. In future design phases, when the phone proceeds further toward production, the plan is to hide the visible components with a darker cover. The glass technology behind this prototype phone is the company’s special glass which can transform itself from a cloudy-white, translucent barrier to an optically clear state. The company explains how this works. Explore further “The ordinary refractive index of these liquid crystal does not match that of the polymer, and the incident light is thus scattered, resulting in a translucent state. When an electric field is applied across the material, the PDLC droplets re-orient so that the extraordinary refractive index of the liquid crystal matches that of the polymer. Therefore, the incident light can pass through, resulting in a transparent state.”Consumer attraction toward modern design and consumer delight in the novelty of owning a glass phone cannot be dismissed, but a research director at Current Analysis noted that, despite the novelty, the glass phone realistically can hope to sell if the display quality is up to par with the best of today’s AMOLED and LCD screens.Polytron Technologies, meanwhile, has also produced a transparent USB memory stick that will go into production soon. The USB stick will come in 8, 16, and 32GB choices. The USB has an embedded LED so that the user knows it is connected and working. There was no information on pricing. A prototype transparent phone.center_img (Phys.org)—Polytron Technologies confidently says that this could be the very year that smartphone featuring transparent glass are available. Taiwan-based Polytron Technologies says the phones could arrive in late 2013. The company, which focuses on electronic and optical-vision glass, is a subsidiary of U.S.-based Polytronix. Polytron has been showing off a prototype smartphone that was built from a light piece of glass. © 2013 Phys.org This document is subject to copyright.

Chloë Grace Moretz slams Boy Erased Queer films should be made by


first_imgChloë Grace Moretz has criticized upcoming LGBTI-themed movie Boy, Erased, saying: ‘Queer films should be made be queer people.’ Chloe of course plays the titular role of Cameron in the critically-acclaimed movie.‘We didn’t cast all celebrities’She added: ‘There’s another conversion therapy movie that’s coming out and you see how that was picked up by a major distributor, they are putting all the money behind it, and you start to compare it.’Chloe furthermore continued: ‘This movie was directed by a bisexual woman of diversity, it has a very diverse cast and we didn’t cast all celebrities.She also added: ‘You look at the other movie. That movie has distribution already. It’s going to come out, it’s going to be big. It’s written and directed by a white man, it’s shot through a straight male gaze. You just look at the discrepancy and that’s shocking.’[embedded content]Chloë Grace Moretz: ‘Asking if someone’s gay is a question that shouldn’t be asked’ The actress stars in this year’s The Miseducation of Cameron Post. The film, about conversion therapy, is directed by Desiree Akhavan, who identifies as bisexual.Boy, Erased, which stars Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman and also Russell Crowe, explores the life of a boy subjected to conversion therapy. It is based on Boy Erased: A Memoir by Garrard Conley.It is directed by Joel Edgerton, who directed 2015’s The Gift. Egerton, also an actor, has starred in films such as 2017s It Comes at Night plus 2018’s Red Sparrow.‘They want something that’s a pretty package’Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, 21-year-old Chloe said: ‘Even though people want these movies to be told, they want these things to be said, they’re not backing it enough.‘They’re still backing first and foremost the straight white man who is going to be putting out the movie that’s the safer bet.’She furthermore added: ‘They want something that’s a pretty package, but that’s still tolerable and acceptable.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

McMaster, the lieutenant general who endured a troubled year as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, has a book deal.HarperCollins Publishers told The Associated Press on Wednesday that McMaster’s “Battlegrounds” is scheduled for 2020. The book will cover his 34-year military career and his time in the Trump administration. Trump repeatedly clashed with McMaster and in March announced that he was replacing him with John Bolton. McMaster had been appointed national security adviser in February 2017 after Michael Flynn was forced out over his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.Financial terms were not disclosed for the book, an election-year release which likely will offer a much tougher portrait of the president than upcoming memoirs by former administration officials Sean Spicer and Anthony Scaramucci, both of whom have spoken warmly of Trump.McMaster, who has since retired from the military, is planning to write about the “gravest geopolitical challenges” of our time. He said in a statement issued through his publisher that he was “looking forward to researching and writing about the greatest challenges to the free world and how we can work together with like-minded nations to seize opportunities, defeat threats to security, and preserve our way of life.”McMaster is also known as the author of “Dereliction of Duty: Lyndon Johnson, Robert McNamara, The Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Lies that Led to Vietnam,” an acclaimed work published by HarperCollins in 1997. by Hillel Italie, The Associated Press Posted Jul 11, 2018 10:48 am PDT Last Updated Jul 11, 2018 at 3:00 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – This Jan. 25, 2018 file photo shows then National Security Adviser H.R.

do in the morning who plays the film’s protagonist by the end of the songKanye West has once again gotten himself in hot water with his views on American history But while his take on the past can be perplexing his recent statements offer a window into a real historical and political debate The rapper who is now going by the shortened stage name Ye has tended to oversimplify things at the very least when he’s tweeted about the history of race in America As historians have previously told TIME his tweets about slavery being a choice overlooked important evidence to the contrary and his tweets suggesting that African Americans should be Republicans because President Lincoln was one missed the way that party politics realigned on the issue of civil rights long after the Civil War ended On Sunday West’s tweets shared along with a photo of him wearing a Make America Great Again baseball cap in a luxurious aircraft cabin turned once again to this period of 19th century US history First he called for the abolishment of the 13th Amendment to the US Constitution In a follow-up tweet he walked that statement back to calling to amend the amendment a position he clarified during an appearance on TMZ Live on Monday afternoon saying that he misspoke when he used the word “abolish” this represents good and America becoming whole again We will no longer outsource to other countries We build factories here in America and create jobs We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment Message sent with love pictwittercom/a15WqI8zgu ye (@kanyewest) September 30 2018 the 13th Amendment is slavery in disguise meaning it never ended We are the solution that heals ye (@kanyewest) September 30 2018 not abolish but lets amend the 13th amendment We apply everyones opinions to our platform ye (@kanyewest) September 30 2018 West’s tweets seem straightforwardly paradoxical as the 13th Amendment which was ratified Dec 6 1865 abolished slavery in the United States “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted shall exist within the United States or any place subject to their jurisdiction” it reads Along with the 14th and 15th it is part of the group of “Reconstruction Amendments” that helped determine how the United States would function after the end of the Civil War Abolishing the 13th Amendment would eliminate constitutional safeguards against slavery a fact that prompted widespread backlash to West’s initial tweet including from his fellow celebrities But West is not the first to see the amendment as problematic The main source of contention with the 13th Amendment is a well-known loophole that suggests it’s legal to enslave convicts Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter Such a clause excluding convicted criminals is a “customary exception” dating back to English Common Law explains Manisha Sinha author of The Slaves Cause: A History of Abolition But the 13th Amendment’s version of that idea has often historically been applied in a way that undermines the amendment’s stated purpose State and local authorities in charge of enforcing it specifically white southerners in the years after the war “tried to get around the amendment” by locking up black people on “trumped-up charges and [using] their labor for free” she tells TIME in an email Through a system known as convict leasing convicts would be leased out to plantation owners to do hard labor such as rebuilding infrastructure destroyed during the Civil War In other words the loophole proved to be a way to keep the system of unpaid labor alive Or as West put it to TMZ on Monday quoting a friend of his “In order to make a free man a slave all you have to do is convict him of a crime” This wasn’t what the amendment’s framers intended adds Daryl Scott a professor of history at Howard University After all the men who wrote the 13th Amendment were Union men not slaveholders and this constitutional change was a way to codify the very thing for which they’d just fought a devastating war “They weren’t all abolitionists but as they won the war they knew slavery was over” he says “They were not trying to re-establish the institution” The historians who spoke to TIME say that the wording though it might have seemed innocuous to those who put it in the Constitution was abused Many state and local legislatures in the South used the loophole as a way to allow the exploitation of labor and to reinforce racist social structures And though the system itself was not “expansive” in terms of the number of people involved Scott says the threat of it hung over society “Different laws were established specifically to convict African Americans for offenses as small as loitering [or] not having proof of employment These laws were abolished during Reconstruction but then they get recreated in different forms in the Jim Crow era” says Chad Williams Professor of History and African and African American Studies at Brandeis University The convict-leasing system did eventually come to an end by about the 1920s In part due to the construction of new prisons those prisoners who might have been sent out to work were increasingly kept in facilities and their numbers began to rise in the North as well as the South “You see this explosion in the prison population taking place really in the middle of the 1960s in the middle of the Johnson administration one of the great ironies that Elizabeth Hinton writes about” Williams adds “[An] increased focus on law and order begins with LBJ who throws more federal resources into policing to address problems of urban unrest the race riots more federal surveillance of black communities” Some experts and advocates most notably in recent years in Ava DuVernay’s 2016 documentary 13th and research by Michelle Alexander author of the 2010 book The New Jim Crow have thus argued that the loophole laid the groundwork for mass incarceration and the disproportionate imprisonment of African Americans and Latinos that is still a problem today Some have argued that keeping convicted felons from participating in society for example by disenfranchising them and making it harder for them to find housing and jobs is a form of modern slavery In fact the national prison strike that took place this August and September was in part aimed at ending what organizers called “modern day slavery” in the form of forcing prisoners to labor for little wages or none at all Scholars like Williams and Scott say that it will take more than nixing the controversial loophole clause from the 13th Amendment to fix the issues that Kanye West is talking about “There are ongoing debates among historians about whether the 13th Amendment was the cause for mass incarceration or if that would have happened regardless” Williams says For example “if that loophole was eliminated today would we see less policing of black communities Would we see fewer discrepancies in how African Americans are sentenced for various crimes compared to white people convicted of the same serious crimes I think those things would still exist Fixing the 13th Amendment loophole will address one aspect of a broader system of criminalization that really infects every aspect of American society and is a much bigger problem than just the 13th Amendment” “Mass incarceration is a late 20th century problem and we act like it’s born with emancipation” says Scott “If you start tinkering with the 13th Amendment you might end up without one” Write to Olivia B Waxman at oliviawaxman@timecom The Iranian Ministry of Science has fired the founder-director of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences (IASBS) in Zanjan and replaced him with a nuclear scientist known to have links with the pro-government Basij militia The militia widely seen as Iran’s moral police has violently quelled student protests on campuses over the past year According to Iranian press reports the government has also replaced the leaders of at least 17 other academic and scientific institutions over the past month including the chancellors of Sharif University of Technology in Tehran the University of Golestan in north Iran and Arak University The changes appear to be part of an ongoing campaign to cleanse campuses of political dissidents Five months ago Iran’s minister of science research and technology Kamran Daneshjoo warned that that faculty members who did not share "the regime’sdirection" and were not committed to the rule of the Supreme Leader would be fired Last week’s dismissal of the IASBS’s founder-director a well-regarded theoretical astrophysicist named Yousef Sobouti sparked protests at the institute according to Persian news reports and blog posts such as this one Some students and faculty members are demanding that Sobouti be reinstated He has been replaced by Rasoul Khodabakhsh who was until recently an administrator and faculty member at Urmia University in northwest Iran The government also recently replaced the chancellor of Sharif University of Technology in Tehran with Reza Roosta Azad a chemical engineering professor who until recently served as the university’s vice-chancellor for research Azad has been an outspoken supporter of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinijad and is reportedly a senior member of the central council of the Isargaran Society a conservative organization founded by Ahmadinijad Sharif University has traditionally chosen its chancellor by a faculty vote More institutions could be in line for similar changes “We see a trend here” says Ali Nayeri an Iranian-American physicist at Chapman University in Orange California and a supporter of the reform movement “The government is putting universities under the control of people who are sympathetic to Ahmadinijad” The Iranian government and the academic establishment have been clashing since the run-up to the presidential election in October 2009 when thousands of scholars and students actively campaigned against Ahmadinijad They protested after Ahmedinijad won the election; opponents alleged that the victory was the result of massive ballot fraud In April Science reported that the regime had begun weeding out

And while the need to defend the teaching of evolution and climate change certainly hasn’t disappeared Scott announced today that she is stepping down later this year as the founding CEO and "the public face" of the National Center for Science Education (NCSE) "I think all nonprofits hope someday to put themselves out of business" says Scott now 67 "But I guess I found a sinecure" she adds with a laugh Her leadership skills will be sorely missed says Kenneth Miller a biology professor at Brown University "She’s incomparable irreplaceable and indispensable" says Miller who was a key figure in one of the center’s most decisive victories a 2005 court case that blunted an attack on evolution by the Dover Pennsylvania school district Scott was masterful at building the coalition needed to win the case he adds Sean Carroll vice president for science education at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Chevy Chase Maryland calls Scott "a national hero of science education The entire scientific community legions of teachers and millions of students owe her a great debt for her dedication and passionate advocacy She has established a remarkable legacy at NCSE" Trained as a physical anthropologist Scott was on the faculty of the University of Kentucky in 1980 when she and other educators opposed attempts to teach creationism in the local schools NCSE was the product of a national grassroots network that had sprung up to battle similar attempts across the country during that era and Scott joined the fledgling organization in 1987 Based in Oakland California NCSE has grown into a 15-person $12 million a year operation that monitors legislation at all levels and provides advice and resources to educators A prolific writer organizer and strategist Scott says that her successor will inherit "a more mature organization moving in exciting new directions" In recent years NCSE has expanded efforts to defend teachers and school districts from attacks by climate change deniers that employ tactics very similar to those used by opponents of evolution "We’ve learned from Day 1 that you don’t blunt those attacks by simply shoveling science onto the debate" she says "You need to recognize the political and economic and cultural issues in play In the end it comes down to your powers of persuasion" NCSE has been able to build new partnerships in its efforts to defend the teaching of climate change she notes including links to evangelical Christian groups that might not agree with what NCSE does on behalf of evolution "We are used to working with groups that support some but not all of our goals" she says "We are not antireligion" The proposed Next Generation Science Standards—a set of voluntary teaching standards being developed by a coalition of states—offer strong support for teaching both evolution and climate change she says But that is also likely to mean more pushback from groups opposed to those subjects in the states that eventually adopt the standards "So we anticipate that teachers will be looking for help" Scott says "And it will be up to NCSE and others to figure out ways to help them do what they are supposed to do" Miller a former member of NCSE’s board says that Scott’s greatest strength has been her ability "to bring people together around the goal of defending the integrity of science education" NCSE is now hunting for her successor and Miller says that person will need both her "passion for the cause" and her ability "to herd cats" “The attackers slit the throats of the kids and left them in the pool of their

seventh House term he accepted more than $700000 from physicians hospitals drug companies and health insurers according to the Center for Responsive PoliticsPrice’s views – abhorring the Affordable

American Physicians and Surgeons which opposes Medicare the highly popular government insurance for older Americans and offers training to doctors on how to opt out of the program The group also opposes mandatory vaccination as "equivalent to human experimentation" a stance contrary to requirements in every state and recommendations of major medical organizations and the federal Centers for

became secretary Price deplored HHS’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services – a key agency within the department he would runPerhaps most notably Price as a congressman supported policies that

the digital ones that can change what they display depending on whats happening below them But as they become more and more common the rules enforcing them are becoming much more strictAccording to the Press Association after March drivers who ignore smart motorway lane closures could well be fined after penalties are expected to be introduced in the spring Highways England – the government agency responsible for the operation maintenance and improvement of the motorways in England – says that ignoring the red X signs on overhead gantries is dangerous Although not yet determined incidents could be treated like passing through a red traffic light which carries a fixed penalty of £100 ($135) and three penalty pointsAnd while its usually pretty obvious as to what those signs mean just to avoid confusion – and take away any valid excuses from drivers flaunting the rules – the organisation have issued this handy guide Its like doing your theory test all over again isnt itCredit: Highways AgencyBut it seems that a lot of people actually need the reminder – Highways England has apparently issued around 80000 warning letters to drivers all of whom broke smart motorway rules in the past 12 monthsThats over 6500 infractions every month – and approximately a third of those are relating to driving in closed lanes Those are the ones with the big red X just in case you still werent sure But to be fair it can be kind of tricky because smart motorways do involve using the hard shoulder for traffic Unless theres a giant red X above them which means theyre closedThe government-owned company wrote in a document seen by the Press Association that road-side cameras which automatically detect lane violations are currently being tested by the Home Office and that they expect enforcement of red X offences to commence from spring 2018So far sections of the M1 M4 M5 M6 and M42 have already been modified with 480 lane miles being added to Englands motorway network with hard shoulders That extra capacity is a welcome move according to Steve Gooding director of motorway research charity the RAC Foundation but only so long as it can be delivered safely"The best laws are those that no-one breaks not just because the penalties for doing so are severe but also because they are well understood and accepted" he saidHe continued: "We need to see a redoubling of communications by Highways England to leave no doubt in motorists minds as to what a red X sign means"Its important that drivers understand that where the carriageway has been blocked by a collision or a breakdown the price for ignoring the red X could be a lot higher than a fixed penalty notice"A Highways England spokesman reiterated that point in the following statement: "We close lanes for a reason and drivers ignoring red Xs puts them and others at risk"Since we started issuing warning letters we have seen a decrease in the number of drivers ignoring lane closures" Featured Image Credit:

IV-caffeine drip Id take annual elections But thats just me being selfish DonQuixotic asks Zeke were there any mid term election results that surprised you If so what I was surprised how close VA Senate got It kind of crept up on us Partly that was because Republicans werent talking about what they saw in the polls and werent putting any more money into the race (But theres a strong argument that if they had done any more to draw attention to the race that Democrats would have upped their turnout efforts and it wouldnt have been as tight) deconstructive asks Zeke how likely do you think there will be a government shutdown I think the odds are much higher (thanks Ted Cruz) no matter what McConnell says You don’t REALLY believe anything conciliatory he says no I think Republicans know that if they want to win in 2016 they cant really afford another shutdown Additionally the GOP has spent the better part of the year promising that victory would mean Washington beginning to work again Thats a tall order but Republicans would own a shutdown to an even greater extent if there were another one If the Affordable Care Act website worked as promised the GOP would have started off this year in a much deeper hole because of the shutdown They know they wont get so lucky twice MementoMori asks Voter turnout was terrible How much responsibility does the media bear for low turnout given the fact that most of the media coverage focuses on the horse race rather than the issues And when issues are reported ‘both sides” is always given greater weight than veracity Voter turnout was terrible but I dont think you can blame us for all of it (Perhaps we deserve some of the blame for the horse-race coverage but lets be honest thats how many voters want to consume their political news anyway) The bigger issue appears to be frustration with the political process and a belief that the outcome of the election wouldnt result in any change in a potential voters day-to-day life The only people who can dissuade voters of that perception are candidates/legislators Sacredh asks the GOP had previously said that they wouldn’t move on immigration reform until after the election Now that the election is over and they control both houses will reform bring the establishment GOP and the Tea Party together or tear them apart Thats the $2 billion question for Republicans coming before the end of the year From what Speaker Boehner/Leader McConnell have said they intend to vigorously oppose any unilateral action by the president and have said executive action would poison the well for legislation action There would definitely be a short-term coalescing together in the face of the executive action The challenge for the GOP comes next year when the partys 2016 candidates announce While the primary base is largely opposed to reform they know they need to find a way to be open to it in order to win a general election That means there will have to be some sort of split eventually but the extent of that split wont be known for some time deconstructive asks Zeke why do you think most of the D’s (especially the losing ones but I digress) ran away from populist messages Elizabeth Warren embraced them instead and played to welcoming crowds in both blue and red states …and furthermore minimum wage initiatives swept the table in states that had them Ergo populism can play to mass audiences Instead too many D’s tried to play GOP Lite and it failed What gives This is certainly an argument that the NRSC was making to reporters yesterday and the data does show that the base wasnt enthused about showing up to vote The question is why didnt they show up Was it because Kay Hagan was running too far from Obama/traditional D principles or were they dissatisfied for other reasons or just tapped out Its hard to say In a lot of instances reaching for the center was the smart play but the late breaking atmospherics of Ebola/ISIS/etc shifted undecided/swing voters to the GOP anyway NPO42 asks In Wednesday’s comments I tried to break down some of the voting trends in two states Florida and Pennsylvania and one of the main themes that appears was just how gerrymandered the majority of districts are For example in terms of a popular vote for House seats in Pennsylvania the Republican candidates led the Democrats 56% – 44% but the actual seats won was 72% – 28% 13 seats to 5 On top of that only 4 of the races were even decided by less than a 20 point margin In my opinion that’s a far cry from how the Framers originally intended representation in the House to be set up Do you think we will ever come to a time when we won’t have large numbers a good majority even of gerrymandered districts Are there too many entrenched interests involved to ever make that a reality Ever is a long time but I certainly wouldnt hold my breath for it Youd need to see the courts act or state legislators volunteer to give up some of their power Whats the incentive for them to
