Really happy to win a silver, gave my heart out: Sindhu,Really happy to win a silver, gave my heart out: Sindhu

first_imgsindhu1 It’s silver for P V Sindhu SHARE P V Sindhu is happy to win a silver in the women’s singles badminton event after her gallant attempt to clinch a coveted gold for India ended in heart-break at the Rio Olympics here, saying she gave her “heart out’’.“I ended up with silver medal but I am really happy,” said Sindhu moments after losing her final clash 21-19 12-21 15-21 against two-time world champion Carolina Marin of Spain.“I’m really proud about it. I’m really happy. I could not win the gold. But I really worked hard. It was anybody’s game.“I really fought very hard and gave my heart out. When I came to final, I told myself just one match to go and you could win a gold medal. Give it your best, and I tried very hard. I feel it was her day,” she added.Sindhu also lauded Sakshi Malik, who opened the India’s medals tally with a bronze at the Rio Games and became the first Indian woman wrestler to win a medal in Olympics.“A day before a girl has got a bronze, it’s me now. We have all played well. There will be ups and downs in sport like in life. Losing one or two points. I would like to congratulate everyone. It’s been a great week for me.“I never thought I would make it to the final, but when I finally made it I thought I’ve to… I really worked hard. I missed the gold.”Praising Marin on her Olympic gold, Sindhu said: “I also congratulate Carolina. It’s been a wonderful week for me. It’s anybody’s aim to win a medal at the Olympics.”Talking about the final match, Sindhu said: “In today’s match, both players were attacking and playing aggressive on court. One has to win and one has to lose. It was her day on centre court today. I’m very happy for her. She’s doing a great job.“Overall, it’s not that I didn’t play well or get points.It was a good match, I can tell you. After the second game, we both were 10-all in the third. She took a lead of four points, and that lead went on. There were simple errors from my side,” she explained.The 21-year-old from Hyderabad said bright days are ahead for Indian badminton.“Future is good definitely. There are many players coming up, and many more will succeed. Badminton is doing really well in India. In men’s singles, Srikanth lost very closely,” she said.Despite finishing a notch higher with a silver medal at the Olympics compared to her senior colleague Saina Nehwal, who had bagged a bronze at the 2012 London Games, Sindhu stayed grounded and said, “It’s a different comparison. She has also achieved a lot, and is senior to me.“Today I feel finally I’ve achieved something in life.It’s my dream, anybody’s dream to win an Olympic medal. I’ve done it. Everybody in top 20/30 are kind of equal and don’t know what will happen as things may change anytime.”On whether she would turn this silver into a gold at 2020 Tokyo Games, Sindhu said: “Hopefully yes. I will really work hard for it.”With a new found confidence and ranking, which is set to improve, Sindhu’s next target is to win a Super Series.“I feel it would change a lot from now onwards. With more confidence I would go further and maybe I would win a Super Series.”Giving credit of her success to coach Pullela Gopichand, Sindhu said: “I’ve really worked hard before coming. I’ve been training hard and made so many sacrifices. Gopi sir has also sacrificed a lot. He’s been in court all throughout. Parents have also made so many sacrifices.”Going into the match, Sindhu said she never thought about Marin’s world number one status and wanted to play her natural game.“I had belief that I can do it in the second game but she played extremely well. I made simple errors and she won the match. I did not feel she’s world number one. I thought it’s anybody’s game and whoever does well would win it. Both of us played aggressively but she was better on the day.” COMMENTS RELATED Rio 2016: Faster, Higher, Stronger Sindhu sails into final, assures India another medal sport null sindhu1center_img Video: In final i really fought very hard: P V Sindhu × Film stars congratulate Sindhu on winning Silver at Olympics Sindhu’s smashing play fires up the nation August 20, 2016 COMMENT Published on I’ll give my heart for gold: Sindhu SHARE SHARE EMAILlast_img read more

India call up was totally unexpected, but felt amazing: Faiz Fazal

first_imgThe Indian ODI and T20I teams were announced on Monday with a relatively unknown name among the regular players in the list. Faiz Faisal is a left-handed batsman from Vidarbha who might get a chance to debut for Team India under MS Dhoni’s leadership in the limited-overs series against Zimbabwe next month.In his own words, the 30-year-old was not expecting an India call up 13 years after he made his first class debut for Vidarbha.’INDIA CALL UP FELT AMAZING’  “A few years back when I had scored 700 plus runs in a Ranji season, I was expecting some good news but it never came and I was disappointed. Over the years, I had stopped expecting as then you don’t feel disappointed. Today when my father called me up, it felt as if the world around me seemed so beautiful. It was unexpected but felt amazing,” Fazal told PTI over phone from Durham, UK, where he is playing for a club in North Eastern Premier League.”Everyone expects to play for India but then everyone does not get a chance. I am happy that I have got an opportunity to represent the country. There are many competent domestic players, who have played 100-plus first-class games but never got selected for India. Mujhe der se hi saahi, chance milaa toh hain (even if its late, at least I have got a chance). I need to make it count if I get an opportunity to play,” said Fazal, who has also played Ranji Trophy for the Railways.advertisement”I feel I am more matured having played 79 first-class matches (5341 runs), which means I have considerable experience at the domestic level.”FAZAL STARS IN IRANI CUPFazal feels that he came into prominence following his match-winning 127 against Ranji Trophy champions Mumbai in the Irani Cup match this season, where Rest of India chased down a mammoth 480 in the fourth innings.”I believe that match brought me into prominence. Scoring a century in the fourth innings against Mumbai in Mumbai in a chase of 482. That will certainly remain a high-point of my domestic career. I batted seven hours and anchored the chase after we conceded 300-plus lead. That was special.”I believe my century (100 off 112 balls) against India B in the Deodhar Trophy final also was a satisfying effort. Scoring hundred in a big game like the final also helps. Before that match, I had scored a half-century (53) against Vijay Hazare Trophy winners Gujarat. So I was in good form at that point in time,” said Fazal.FAZAL GOES UNSOLD AT IPL AUCTIONThere was a tinge of disappointment in the voice of the former Rajasthan Royals player as Fazal was not picked by any franchise for this IPL season.”Obviously, it was disappointing but then I am now used to it. I knew that I had to keep working hard and that’s why when I got a chance to play club cricket, I grabbed the opportunity. It keeps me match-fit. For someone like me, call it my mantra or USP, it has only been hard work. When I have worked hard at nets, I have felt relaxed out there in the middle,” said the Vidarbha captain, who scored 559 runs in the Ranji Trophy this season.’WANT TO LEARN FROM DHONI’India won’t be playing any more limited overs fixtures in next one year and it may mean that Fazal, if he gets a chance and does well, might get confined to the fringes once again.However, when someone is 30 and had nearly given up hopes of playing for India, every day in the dressing room is a thing of joy.”I don’t want to think on those lines. I would like to give my best and learn a few things from Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Which cricketer in India does not want to play under someone like Dhoni,” concluded Fazal.last_img read more

Paris 2024 Olympics nearly assured as Los Angeles agrees to 2028 Games

first_imgParis moved within a hair’s breadth on Monday of formally being chosen to host the 2024 Summer Olympics after rival candidate city Los Angeles agreed to accept the consolation prize of the 2028 Games in a rare two-way contest between the cities.Both cities were competing for the 2024 Summer Games after several other contenders withdrew, and the stage was set for Paris to win its bid when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) confirmed that Los Angeles had officially embraced the later date of 2028.”The IOC welcomes this decision of the Los Angeles Olympic and Paralympic Candidature Committee,” IOC President Thomas Bach said in a statement.The decision, subject to formal ratification by the IOC at a meeting in Peru in September, paves the way for Los Angeles and Paris to join London as the only cities ever to host the Games – summer or winter – three times since the modern Olympics began more than a century ago.The United States last hosted the Olympics for the 1996 Summer Games in Atlanta. Its first was the Summer Olympiad III, staged in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1904, coinciding with the World’s Fair held there that summer.”I am proud to announce that the Olympic Games are coming back to the United States of America,” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti told a news conference at the StubHub Center sports complex in suburban Carson.U.S. President Donald Trump, beleaguered by recent staff shakeups and setbacks on Capitol Hill, hailed the news in a statement of congratulations from the White House.advertisement”I am confident that the Summer Games in Los Angeles will exemplify both the Olympic ideal and the American spirit, and we look forward to hosting them,” he said.The United States has hosted the Olympics 9 times — 5 Summer Games and 4 Winter Games. France has hosted 6 times, three each in summer and winter.The IOC’s unprecedented move of essentially awarding two Games in tandem turned the spotlight on security challenges facing the French capital while giving Los Angeles, which last hosted the Olympics 33 years ago, ample time to upgrade its public transportation system.Residents of Los Angeles, which ranks as America’s second-largest city by population, expressed a mix of enthusiasm for the Games and anxiety about placing additional strains on the city’s notoriously heavy traffic.”It was a great thing the last time we had it here in L.A., and I think it will be a boon for business and kind of bring unity back to L.A.,” Los Angeles resident Domenic Ferrante, 53, told Reuters.CHARIOTS OF FIREThe hosting agreement for Los Angeles commits the IOC to furnishing the city financial contributions totaling $2 billion, some $500,000 more than Rio de Janeiro received for last year’s Summer Games.The rest of the projected $5.3 billion budget for the Los Angeles games would come from local sponsorships and ticket sales, Garcetti said. The federal government had agreed to pick up the tab for “national security costs,” he said.An official designation of Paris for the 2024 Olympics has yet to be announced. Assuming it clinches the Summer Games for that year, it would mark the centenary of the 1924 Paris Olympics, depicted in the 1981 Oscar-winning motion picture “Chariots of Fire.” Paris also hosted the second edition of the modern Summer Olympics, in 1900.Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo welcomed the Los Angeles decision but stopped short of saying the 2024 Olympics were assured for her city. Talks with the IOC would continue through August to “reach a tripartite deal,” she said.A representative for Hidalgo’s office, speaking on condition of anonymity, said definitive word was expected to come when the IOC meets on Sept. 13 in Lima, Peru, after several more steps in the procedure had been finalized.The co-chair for Paris’ Olympics bid, Tony Estanguet, said its organizing team had convinced the IOC “of the merits of awarding” the 2024 Games to Paris. His committee welcomed the Los Angeles announcement as “a key step in the process of awarding the Olympics.”Garcetti said he anticipates unanimous IOC support for his city’s 2028 host designation in Lima.Canadian senior IOC member Dick Pound said: “It is a win-win for the two cities.””It’s good for the IOC because we’ve got two great cities lined up for the next two big shows,” he told Reuters by phone.The next Olympic Summer Games, in 2020, is already scheduled to be held in Tokyo. Los Angeles previously hosted the Summer Games in 1932 and 1984.The Los Angeles 2028 hosting agreement is still subject to formal City Council approval, which is expected next Tuesday or Wednesday, city officials said.advertisementThe Southern California city had argued that it could host a low-cost Olympics given that it already has all the necessary infrastructure in place, while Paris would need to build several expensive new facilities.But Paris was seen as the front-runner for the 2024 Games because it had been passed over in a series of earlier Olympic bids and because the French capital will have marked 100 years since the last time it hosted the Games.Paris also has a world-class public transportation system.Los Angeles’ reputation for heavy traffic and the impact of Trump’s ban on travel to the United States from six Muslim-majority nations had been seen as factors weighing against the latest bid by the U.S. West Coast city.last_img read more

USB-C finds growing role in wearables and mobile products

first_imgEnergy consumption is one of the biggest challenges for the mobile technology sector. USB-C was supposed to be primarily a connectivity option, but it is increasingly finding favor because it is also a useful means of managing power in portable devices.In this ever-evolving mobile ecosystem, devices become more and more intelligent and powerful, which means that they all require more energy to work. Although manufacturers strive to reduce battery consumption, the common problem with smartphones, wearable devices, fitness bracelets, tablets, and laptops is the high energy consumption after a couple of hours of use at full capacity, necessitating a session with power supply to recharge the battery. Therefore, one of the many challenges for designers is assessing the energy factor, estimating the energy needed, and designing very efficient power management configuration.In the design of a wireless charging system, a fundamental parameter is represented by the amount of charging power required to replenish the battery. The received power depends on innumerable factors, including the level of the transmitted power, the distance, and the alignment between the transmitting winding and the receiver, otherwise defined as “coupling” and, finally, the tolerance of the components of the transmitter and of the receiver. Nobody has time to wait for a battery to be recharged: the shorter the time to recharge the battery, the better the user experience. This is well understood in the consumer electronics market and all the major brands are trying to reduce charge times.Devices with a USB-C port recharge quickly and offer ultra-fast transfer speeds for connection to peripherals and external devices. USB-C also supports audio and video output and is compatible with HDMI, VGA, and DisplayPort displays. USB-C is on track to become the industry standard for manufacturers of all types of devices.But while USB-C simplifies things for end users, it increases complexity from the design and engineering point of view. There are substantial design and test challenges that designers have to face with the creation of a USB Type-C power connector that allows compatibility and reversible use with all other types. The USB port has evolved from its initial use mainly as a data interface, subsequently becoming the main means of charging portable electronic devices.ALT TEXT HEREFigure 1: SM58IP04 single-chipSilicon Mitus has four lines of products that address the mobile device and consumer electronics market, LCD and OLED display market, and the charging accessory market. The main applications are power management integrated circuits (PMIC) for smartphone applications such as IF PMIC/Battery management with Quick charging, complete USB Type-C solutions, and wireless chargers; PMIC solutions for LCD and OLED displays for smartphones, monitors and large TVs; Audio products for boosted Class-D amplifiers, high-performance audio codec, and surface sound for flat panel displays; PMIC solutions for computing applications and USB Type-C battery chargers.“We have shipped over 3.5 billion ICs in these markets to date.” said Youm Huh, CEO of Silicon Mitus, a South Korean company based in Pangyo (Seoul) specializing in analog IC products. “Automotive is another market we are addressing with PMIC, as well as audio products for automotive infotainment and display modules. Silicon Mitus provides Power management IC to module manufacturers of rear-view cameras of the latest generation of cars (replacing the glass mirrors).”Silicon Mitus recently announced the SM58IP04: a single-chip buck-boost USB Type-C Narrow VDC (NVDC) charger targeting 2S/3S and 4S battery applications. It achieves up to 95% efficiency while in both buck- or boost-mode charging the battery up to 6 A due to advanced thermal management.“We are extremely satisfied with the performances of SM58IP04: it has been quickly adopted in computing applications where the product has been very effective in delivering great performance, with a small PCB solution size and cost-saving,” said Gianfranco Scherini, the company’s VP of business development. “This product combines the features of a multi-cell battery charger with the full support of the USB Type-C and PD specification.”The USB Type-C standard meets the needs of the market in terms of power delivery and data rate, but above all, in terms of the ever-increasing quantity of devices able to interconnect. It is a reversible connector, meaning you don’t need to know the connection direction. The USB Type-C standard adapts to be a perfect connection for accessories and external peripherals, but also for powering laptops and other devices. Indeed, the USB Type-C Power Delivery (PD) standard supports currents up to 5A and 20V, making it possible to deliver up to 100Watts of power. Given the current levels, the standard requires appropriate protections, without which it could damage the device.“We have proven that our strategy to push the efficiency of our buck-boost and at the same time aggressively target the highest level of integration was right. Customers really appreciate the advantages of a simple, highly efficient solution that integrates the full support for the USB Type-C power path together with a battery charger. With the use of the SM58IP04, each USB Type-C port behaves exactly the same and hence, it offers another level of flexibility to the system design when trying to accommodate different form factors with a common platform. We saw the potential in the USB Type-C with the release of the Power Delivery specification 3.0 and in a large amount of new use models, and this is just the beginning. Let’s think about the capability to deliver up to 100Watts of power — 5Amp * 20 volts — with the possibility to negotiate the values of the voltages and current in any shape or form needed, ” said Scherini.The main obstacle to implementing energy-saving solutions lies in thermal management. Technological advances in design have continually increased the need to protect components against heat build-up. For a semiconductor manufacturer, silicon packaging is a key distinguishing factor. Specifications such as thermal dissipation and overall system requirements depend largely on the packaging.“Thermal management plays a very important role. As consumers are moving towards slimmer, fan-less notebook PCs, one of the challenges is keeping the system within a comfortable temperature to the touch and within the IC temperature range of operation,“ said Huh.One of the critical conditions happens while the user connects the system with the power supply: in order to allow users to recharge a device in the shortest amount of time we need to pump as much power as possible into battery at once. For example, in notebook PC and Chromebook applications it is common for the charger to deliver between 45 to 65 Watts of power to the battery. This implies that with every single percentage point of efficiency loss more than half a watt is dissipated locally on the very small area of the PCB board and generates heat increasing the local temperature.

Figure 2: circuit layout for the SM58IP04 single-chipTherefore, the hardware performance requirements address the electronics increasingly towards architectures with high-energy efficiency, so that they can support more configurations and accurate control in order to preserve the characteristics of the devices for the near future.“SM58IP04 helps to solve this problem by addressing both the high-efficiency of the buck-boost and the optimal thermal dissipation with a package technology that maximizes the heat flow through the PCB. The higher the efficiency of the charger, the smaller the amount of power being dissipated inside the enclosure of the device, the better the heat gets dissipated thru the motherboard, the lower the temperature in the system,” said Huh.“To support the growth in research and development, in 2017 we opened a new Design Centre in Pavia, Italy, where we find an attractive pool of skilled analog designers. We are fully equipped to deliver the latest generation of battery charger products so that our customers can take full advantage of the USB Type-C features in Mobile and Laptop applications,” said Huh. “That is why we decided to invest in USB Type-C battery chargers for laptop/Chromebook applications and cap dividers used in mobile applications. The output voltage of the SM58IP04 can be programmed with a granularity of 12.5mV — fully compliant with the USB PD3.0 requiring a minimum step of 20mV. With our product portfolio, Silicon Mitus enables new architectures for battery chargers that can bypass any internal power conversion in the device, hence eliminating the main source of power losses while keeping the current flowing into the cable within 3A. This eliminates the need for more expensive cables, as above 3A, the USB standard requires the use of a more expensive e-marked cable,“ Huh added.Power management devices are increasingly smarter and more efficient. The demand for such devices is increasing rapidly due to advanced features and technology. The global PMIC market is expected to expand to a CAGR of 4.6% over the next few years and reach $ 56.48 billion by 2026.>> This article was originally published on our sister site, EE Times. last_img read more

SecretaryGeneral strongly condemns latest bloodshed in Iraq

“The United Nations stands in solidarity with the Iraqi people in the face of these deplorable, unjustifiable acts,” the spokesperson for the Secretary-General said in a statement.According to media reports, the city of Hilla in central Iraq was the scene of one of the bloodiest attacks when workers at a textiles factory were hit by two car bombs.As bystanders and emergency services tried to help the wounded in Hilla, a suicide bomber detonated more explosives killing and wounding many more people. Gunmen had earlier opened fire in the capital, Baghdad, killing several policemen and soldiers. 11 May 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has strongly condemned the spate of terrorist bombings and other attacks in Iraq yesterday that reportedly claimed the lives of over 100 people and injured many more, most of them civilians. read more

Burundi peace process on track but economy needs help Annan says

In a new report to the Security Council on the situation in Burundi – which is trying to recover from a decade of civil strife that left between 250,000 and 300,000 people dead – the Secretary-General says the country’s transitional institutions are working well.But he warns that Burundians must experience an improvement in their living conditions or the budding peace process may be jeopardized. The country’s gross domestic product shrank by 20 per cent between 1990 and this year, farmland is scarce, and rates of HIV/AIDS infection and adult illiteracy are high.”There is a risk that the hopeful signs of peace which have now begun to appear could be lost unless they are accompanied by improvements in the living conditions of the population as a ‘peace dividend,'” he says.Burundi this year saw the peaceful transition of power when Pierre Buyoya stepped down as President on 1 May and was replaced by his Vice-President, Domitien Ndayizeye.More recently, the country’s Transitional Government and its biggest rebel group, le Conseil National pour la Défense de la Démocratie – Forces pour la Défense de la Démocratie (CNDD-FDD), signed a comprehensive ceasefire agreement.The Secretary-General says the security situation has “considerably improved” since 8 October, when the first Pretoria Protocol on political, defence and security power sharing between the Transitional Government and the CNDD-FDD was signed. “New alliances are being created and the people of Burundi are adjusting themselves to the new situation.”Mr. Annan reiterates his call for another armed rebel group, Parti pour la liberation du people Hutu – Forces nationals de liberation-Agathon Rwasa (PALIPEHUTU-FNL), to begin unconditional ceasefire talks immediately.Noting many challenges lay ahead, including the implementation of the ceasefire accords, he calls on the international community to help fund the African Mission in Burundi (AMIB), a peacekeeping force deployed by the African Union this year. read more

No rush Canadas US ambassador wants quick NAFTA deal but wont take

by Dean Bennett, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 18, 2017 2:00 am MDT Last Updated Jul 18, 2017 at 11:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email No rush: Canada’s U.S. ambassador wants quick NAFTA deal but won’t take bad one Canada’s ambassador to the U.S. David MacNaughton speaks during a press conference at the Council of Federation meetings in Edmonton Alta, on Tuesday July 18, 2017. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Jason Franson EDMONTON – Canada’s ambassador to the United States says he is pushing hard for a timely resolution on the NAFTA renegotiation, but he won’t accept a bad deal to get it.“We’ve heard from Canadian business (and) from the provinces that there’s a certain amount of uncertainty that is causing people to perhaps delay investments,” David MacNaughton said Tuesday on the opening day of the premiers annual summer meeting.“Obviously if we could get a clarification of the trading relationship sooner rather than later it would be better, but having said that we’re not going to rush into a bad deal.“We’re ready to sit down and work on this negotiation for as long as it takes to get something that is going to be good for Canadians.”MacNaughton made the comments prior to briefing the leaders of Canada’s provinces and territories on trade and the upcoming NAFTA talks.In May, U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration gave notice it wants to renegotiate the 23-year-old tripartite North American Free Trade Agreement. The president says it is obsolete and unfair to American workers.On Monday, the U.S. released a list of what it wishes to see changed when talks begin next month.The U.S. wants more exports of its dairy and other agricultural products, free trade in telecommunication and online purchases, and the elimination of independent dispute resolution panels, which have ruled in Canada’s favour on contentious issues such as softwood lumber.MacNaughton said some form of external dispute resolution is critical.“Whether or not that dispute resolution mechanism can be improved or modernized, I think we’re up for discussions around that, but there needs to be some kind of a dispute resolution mechanism as part of the agreement.”MacNaughton said recent discussions with U.S. business leaders, state governors and the Trump administration suggest everyone is seeking a fair and balanced deal. But if the U.S. wants Canada to loosen up on subsidies and protectionist rules, the ambassador says bring it on.“The U.S. dairy industry is heavily subsidized and heavily protected, as is their sugar industry and a number of other areas, so if they want to start talking about opening up agricultural markets we’re happy to talk about them opening up theirs.”Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard said given that the U.S. list of NAFTA concerns is 16 pages long, Canadians should not expect a resolution anytime soon.“It would be extremely unlikely that such a wide, broad list of subjects could be settled in a matter of months,” Couillard said“It will take years. It’s a long, long negotiation.”Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne said she has spoken to 22 state governors as well as with federal lawmakers. The prevailing feeling on both sides of the border, she said, is that no harm be done to the trade agreement.“What I have found in the United States is that there’s a very deep understanding among leaders there that the connectivity between our economies is important for both of us,” said Wynne.Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister said premiers need to continue to reach out to U.S. governors and lawmakers to make the case for cross-border trade.“There’s tremendous strength in working together and building things together,” said Pallister.Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil said while the federal government will carry the ball on talks, he wants to make sure there’s a way for provincial concerns and suggestions to be heard.“There’s no indication on my end that (the pathway) won’t be there,” said McNeil. “We just need to continue to make sure and be clear about that.”McNeil said timing is critical.“What I want to make sure … is that these negotiations don’t linger on,” said McNeil, whose province is a heavy exporter of seafood and rubber to the U.S.“The investment world needs certainty. Both of our countries need this.”On Monday, Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall suggested Canada should compile a discreet list of retaliatory measures should the NAFTA talks “get off the rail.”Asked about that strategy, Notley said now is the time to focus on what unites rather than divides the two sides.“We’re not at the point of engaging in retaliatory strategizing,” said Notley.She compared NAFTA’s interdependent trade links to the intricate weave of a sweater. Pull one thread, she said, and more threads come loose.“There’s nary a string that can be pulled on any one of them without pulling out the whole sweater,” she said. read more

first_imgOpportunity photographie trois années d’exploration sur MarsLa NASA a réalisé une vidéo en compilant les plus de 300 images capturées par le rover Opportunity lors de son voyage sur la planète Mars entre le cratère Victoria et le cratère Endeavour qu’il a atteint en août 2011.Arrivé sur Mars en janvier 2004, le rover Opportunity n’a pas fini de nous en apprendre sur la planète rouge et de nous la montrer comme on ne l’a encore jamais observée. En août 2011, le robot a en effet atteint une nouvelle étape de sa mission : le cratère Endeavour. Mais durant le voyage qui a débuté en septembre 2008 et qui l’a mené du cratère Victoria à son nouvel objectif, Opportunity a bien pris soin de capturer, chaque jour martien où il a roulé, une image du paysage environnant.Ainsi, durant ses trois ans de trajet, il a pris pas moins de 309 clichés de la planète rouge. Des photographies que la NASA a eu l’idée de compiler en une vidéo pour fournir une sorte de film de voyage du petit robot. Il montre le cratère Endeavour apparaitre de plus en plus au fur et à mesure qu’Opportunity s’en approche, empruntant néanmoins de nombreux détours par des régions dangereuses de la planète. Mais ce n’est pas tout, puisque l’équipe du rover est également parvenue à ajouter une bande-son à la vidéo. A l’oreille, cela ressemble fortement à des grésillements mais le son a en fait été recueilli des accéléromètres du robot et la fréquence a dû être accélérée 1.000 fois pour obtenir des fréquences audibles. “Le son représente les vibrations du rover alors qu’il se déplace à la surface de Mars”, a expliqué Paolo Bellutta du Jet Propulsion Laboratory de la NASA à Pasadena en Californie. Il a également ajouté : “Lorsque le son est plus fort, le rover est en train de bouger sur de la roche. Lorsqu’il est plus faible, Opportunity se déplace sur du sable”, cite un communiqué de la NASA.À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESATandis qu’Opportunity poursuit sa mission dans le cratère Endeavour, l’agence spatiale américaine prépare actuellement la prochaine génération de robot explorateur.

Security Minister announces measures to combat crime and violence

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKingston, Jamaica, January 3, 2017 – National Security Minister, Hon. Robert Montague, has announced a raft of measures to combat crime and violence and to improve the effectiveness of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) for 2017.  Speaking at the JCF’s annual devotional exercise at the Police Commissioner’s Office, Old Hope Road, in St. Andrew, on January 3, Mr. Montague informed that among the measures will be the splitting of the St. James Police Division “to bring to bear more resources on the problems in St. James”. He further announced the arrival of two naval ships on January 21 from the Netherlands for the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) Coast Guard, to patrol the seas in order to secure the nation’s borders.   A surveillance plane will also arrive later this year, which will provide additional protection and security for Jamaica’s borders to prevent the trafficking of guns and ammunition. Meanwhile, Mr. Montague noted that 40 rank-and-file members of the JCF will be travelling to Cuba for training with dogs that have been acquired.  The National Security Minister pointed out that 200 more vehicles will be added to the JCF fleet in order to enable every police station to respond appropriately to various occurrences. “We’re going to be expanding the closed-circuit television (CCTV) network. We have four towns with CCTV cameras and we’ll be expanding this into New Kingston,” the Minister said.   “Private persons with CCTV will also be able to send their footage to the police. We’re going to do facial recognition, geofencing and license-plate reading. We’re going to be investing heavily in the intelligence network to lead the operations of the Force,” continued Mr. Montague.  Regarding legislation, he noted that several changes were coming to the Bail, Firearm and Fingerprint Acts.   “The Firearm Act is special to me. The message must be clearly sent that when you take up a gun, you are going to spend a long time behind bars,” he emphasized.  Attention is also to be given to praedial larceny, and motorcyclists’ helmets will be required to bear a registration number. Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Novelette Grant, said the members of the JCF must value themselves and the service they give.   She encouraged them to partner with citizens to rid the country of crime and violence. In his New Year’s Message to the nation, Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, said the Government is prepared to use the full force of the law to address the crime problem, as it is the greatest threat to the country’s economic independence.   He urged persons to report crimes, noting that “information is the best weapon against criminals”. The annual devotional exercise was held under the theme ‘Our Journey…with Christ’. center_img Photo Credit: JamaicaObserverlast_img read more

Home rule charter process dies

first_imgThe few people who have been after Clark County commissioners to go forward with a home rule charter process, because they claim the public doesn’t have enough of a voice in governmental decisions, didn’t testify Tuesday at a public hearing.Of the 13 people who did stick around for the hearing — which was at the end of a four-hour meeting — 10 spoke against the proposal and three were for it.Commissioners, unimpressed with low turnout at seven forums the county conducted on the charter process, ended up dumping the whole proposal.Commissioners could have voted to do one of three things: put 15 freeholder positions on the November ballot; ask supporters to gather signatures to demonstrate support; or put the freeholder positions on the ballot along with a question as to whether to go ahead with the process. Commissioners Steve Stuart and Marc Boldt were willing to vote to let the supporters try and gather some 14,000 signatures (10 percent of the number of people who voted in the last general election.) Once Commissioner Tom Mielke, who had supported putting freeholders on the ballot, heard he was going to be outvoted, he said he’d rather just dump the idea.Had commissioners gone forward with the charter process, 15 freeholders would have written a draft county charter that would go back to voters.Under a charter, proposed changes to the structure of county government could have included giving people initiative and referendum powers (which people have on statewide issues), making certain elected positions into appointed positions or increasing the number of commissioners, for example.last_img read more

Boris Johnson Not appropriate to veto Bermuda antigay marriage law

first_imgShare this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… The Supreme Court of Bermuda heard the case of same-sex marriage in early 2017. Chief Justice Charles-Etta Simmons issued the ruling in favor of it.Simmons ruled that the Registrar must ‘act in accordance with the requirements of the Marriage Act’. Ultimately, she declared ‘same-sex couples are entitled to be married under the Marriage Act.’However, when Progressive Labour Party gained a majority following the July 2017 elections, MP Wayne Furbert announced his intention to introduce a bill banning same-sex marriage.They introduced the Domestic Partnership Act in November. It passed the House by a 24-10 vote and the Senate by an 8-3 vote.All it needed after was royal assent from governor Governor John Rankin. It received this yesterday.LGBTI campaigners had pinned some hope on the fact that island is a British Overseas Territory. As such, Rankin could have declined to sign the law. However, he would need to seek consent from Boris Johnson, the UK’s Foreign Secretary.‘Not appropriate’ to intervene in Bermuda decisionHowever, it was revealed in the Commons today that Johnson believed it ‘not appropriate’ to intervene.Sky News political reporter Aubrey Allegretti‏ tweeted from the Commons: ‘Boris Johnson decided it would “not be appropriate” to intervene to block Bermuda repealing from repealing same-sex-marriage, minister Harriet Baldwin tells the Commons.’ ‘@RhonddaBryant asks how FCO ministers will feel when trying to convince Russia or Pakistan to respect LGBT rights and they just end up “laughing” at Britain.‘FCO minister Harriet Baldwin admits the UK “disagrees with this direction of travel” and wants to “express our disappointment” at Bermuda decision to repeal same-sex marriage.‘@DavidLammy says he can “see the discomfort on (FCO minister Harriet Baldwin’s) face” as she defends Government’s decision not to interveneOne of those outraged by the revelation was MP Caroline Lucas of the Green Party. She said, ‘This is an absolute scandal. The FCO claims to stand for LGBT+ rights, yet in a territory THEY GOVERN they are waving through the repealing of same-sex marriage. This is a breach of human rights, and the Government should reverse their decision immediately.’MP David Lammy, posted a video criticizing the decision.‘For @BorisJohnson to allow Bermuda’s decision to repeal same sex marriage is a source of great shame,’ he said. ‘Bermuda has a deep-rooted history of oppression, segregation & discrimination of Black people. Their Govt’s vote to take away the rights of LGBTQ minorities fills me with despair.’For @BorisJohnson to allow Bermuda’s decision to repeal same sex marriage is a source of great shame.
