In today’s Big Story podcast, as partner abuse goes digital, a watchdog group is warning Canadians how easy it can be for an abusive spouse to install Stalkerware on a victim’s phone. Much of it is specifically marketed and sold to help people surveil their partner’s without consent. And CitizenLab’s new report urges police and the courts to figure out a plan to prosecute for it.So what is it, exactly? How does Stalkerware end up on a phone, and how can you tell if there’s any on your device? What legal options do victims have? And what’s at the root of the problem that lets new technology be turned into a weapon of domestic violence?GUEST: Kate Robertson, research fellow at CitizenLab, criminal lawyerAudio Playerhttps://media.blubrry.com/thebigstory/s/rogers-aod.leanstream.co/rogers/thebigstory_dai/tbs_06182019_dai.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.You can subscribe to The Big Story podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google and Spotify.You can also find it at thebigstorypodcast.ca.
OTTAWA, O.N. – The Prime Minister’s Office says Justin Trudeau will sit down Sunday with B.C. Premier John Horgan and Alberta Premier Rachel Notley in an effort to hash out a solution to the ongoing dispute over the Trans Mountain pipeline project.Spokesperson Chantal Gagnon says Trudeau, who is on his way to Peru for the Summit of the Americas, will return to Ottawa for the meeting before resuming his travels to Paris and London on Monday.Tensions over the pipeline impasse reached a new peak this week when Kinder Morgan stopped all non-essential spending on the expansion project, pending reassurance from the federal government that the project would be going ahead. Trudeau had an emergency cabinet meeting on Tuesday where ministers discussed but did not settle on, options for action, including whether to help finance the project or pull funding from B.C. to help convince Horgan to stop blocking the project.Finance Minister Bill Morneau met Wednesday with Notley, after which he said the federal government would meet the company’s May 31 deadline for action.Ottawa has jurisdiction for the pipeline and approved it in 2016, but Horgan has thrown up a number of roadblocks, including a lawsuit over the approval process and a threat to prevent oil from flowing through it, all of which helped spook Kinder Morgan’s investors.(THE CANADIAN PRESS) read more

HTC : ses smartphones débloqués dès le mois d’aoûtChose promise, chose due : le constructeur taïwanais HTC offrira dès le mois prochain à ses clients la possibilité de débloquer le bootloader, un logiciel permettant d’utiliser plusieurs systèmes d’exploitation sur un même terminal, de certains de ses smartphones. Le premier modèle concerné sera le HTC Sensation.Les bootloaders des smartphones HTC seront très prochainement débloqués. Une bonne nouvelle officiellement annoncée par le constructeur taïwanais sur Facebook. Dès le mois d’août, les propriétaires du modèle HTC Sensation seront les premiers à bénéficier de mises à jour logicielles qui leur permettront d’utiliser plusieurs versions du système d’exploitation mobile Android sur leur mobile. Le déblocage du HTC Sensation sera suivi à la rentrée par celui du Sensation 4G de T-Mobile USA, puis l’EVO 3D de Sprint. “Nous sommes en pleine phase de test actuellement et espérons qu’elle sera pleinement opérationnelle d’ici début septembre pour ceux qui auront reçu la mise à jour. Nous allons poursuivre le déploiement au fil du temps à d’autres appareils dans le cadre de versions de maintenances et des prochains déploiements” promet la firme taïwanaise. Et de s’engager à faire part chaque semaine des progrès réalisés. “HTC soutient la communauté des développeurs” affirme le constructeur qui s’était attiré les foudres de ses fans en décidant de verrouiller ses bootloaders après les avoir habitués à pouvoir modifier ses appareils.Le 16 juillet 2011 à 09:16 • Maxime Lambert read more
Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Images of Historic Nebraska Flooding From Space Show Stunning DetailIncredible Images of Historic ‘Bomb Cyclone’ That Blasted Central US Finding the perfect winter workout gear isn’t easy. Manufacturers are constantly tinkering to find the right balance of warmth, breathability, and water resistance. And you certainly don’t want sweat getting trapped inside.A team of researchers in Switzerland has been wrestling with this particular problem for quite some time. Now, they may have a solution. It’s an electrified jacket that’s lined with gold.There are plenty of electric jackets out there — toolmaker Milwaukee, for example, makes one for example — but they’re primarily designed to keep the wearer extra-toasty. What the team at Empa has created is a jacket that runs a small electrical current through a membrane to draw moisture away from the wearer’s skin. They call their system Hyro_Bot.As you may have guessed, the membrane is where the gold is put to use. The material is covered in “microbumps” that help transport moisture from one side of the material to the other when a charge (just 1.5V) is applied.Managing director Joacim Holter (the gentleman you see at the top blasting his way through the powder) helped test the jacket, and he was impressed with the results. “The effect was much greater than I dared to dream of,” he said, adding “I did sweat without feeling wet.”Here’s what his midlayer looked like after a 10k ski while wearing the Hydro_Bot jacket:It’s easy to see the areas where the Hydro_Bot jacket’s membrane has done its thing. Holter’s shirt is still quite sweaty, but a substantial area is bone dry.You’ll be able to buy one of these amazing jackets soon enough. The plan is to have them ready for the 2018-19 ski season via a partnership with Kjus. If you don’t recognize the brand, you might know its founder — Lasse Kjus, the Norwegian Olympic Champion and two-time World Cup champion skier.Hydro_Bot jackets won’t come cheap — some of the company’s current offerings sell for north of $1500, and this thing has gold in it (realistically .2grams shouldn’t impact the price all that much). Still, if you’re looking for the ultimate in moisture wicking outerwear you may want to start saving your pennies. Stay on target read more
The biggest news out of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con may not be any specific movie announcement of trailer tease. Instead, this week’s comic book movie bombshell is that writer/director James Gunn has been fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, a movie he had already finished scripting, after being targeted by a right-wing harassment campaign dredging up old tweets with his well-known “controversial” sense of humor.This sucks given how valuable Gunn’s personal artistic vision has been in reimagining those previously Z-list characters into a multi-million dollar branch of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And as Disney is poised to control even more of media now that Comcast has dropped out of the Fox buyout, it’s more important than ever for the near-monopoly to actually support the people that make these #brands so succesful, instead of caving in to the absolute worst losers online.A long time ago, a very cool writer and director named George Lucas resisted studio meddling and made a movie called Star Wars. Like nearly all films, Star Wars was the result of many talented collaborators, collaborators Lucas should’ve listed to more when making later films. However, Lucas’s original personal vision was instrumental in creating a film that led to a franchise Disney paid over four billion dollars for.Unfortunately, Disney’s handling of Star Wars so far suggests they have forgotten the moral of Star Wars’ origins: empower talented young filmmakers to make the movies they want to make. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are two of the most talented working directors around, turning objectively awful ideas like The Lego Movie and a raunchy 21 Jump Street reboot into modern classics. And for months of shooting, we thought they were doing the same thing on the set of the terrible-sounding Han Solo origin film. However, that won’t be the case, since Lucasfilm fired the duo from the film releasing in less than a year. Everyone’s favorite narrator Ron Howard then stepped in to make sure that Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian and the rest of this pointless prequel make it onto movie screens just days from now in Solo: A Star Wars Story.This isn’t an isolated incident. Drama involving Star Wars directors is almost routine at this point. JJ Abrams clashed with producers on the direction of The Force Awakens’ script. Gareth Edwards’s Rogue One underwent numerous reshoots, resulting in a film that felt reassembled after the fact. After his Fantastic Four debacle, Josh Trank got booted from his Star Wars spin-off before it even got started. The awful Book of Henry has folks suspicious of Colin Trevorrow involvement in Episode IX. So far only The Last Jedi’s Rian Johnson has made it through the Star Wars machine with his creative vision intact, and was promptly punished by idiotic fans for it.Why can’t Disney just let their directors do their job and direct?The modern franchise blockbuster movie-making machine is very much a throwback to the producer-driven Studio System from the birth of film. More than ever film was a business, with the creatives acting more like mercenaries brought on by producers to fill specific roles. And a lot of fantastic, hugely important and influential films got made during their era of the art’s history.But few would argue against the 1970s as the greatest era of artistic American filmmaking. And a lot of that resurgent creative energy was due to the wider acceptance of auteur theory, the idea that directors making films to express their singular vision was the way to make movies that could really say something. Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola and Steven Spielberg and George Lucas were all products of this way of thinking, and the sheer quality of their output I think proves its effectiveness.The problem is the quality of the film is tethered to an individual. Tyler Perry making endless awful movies born from his own brain is hilarious and harmless, but that’s unappealing to studios looking to minimize risks with movies that must make a billion dollars to break even. Studios swapping out directors can also be the right decision creatively as well as financially. We’ll never get to see the Wonder Woman film Michelle MacLaren would have given us, but we know the one by her replacement Patty Jenkins is pretty spectacular.Still, time and again the struggles between directors and the mega-studios controlling the franchises seem to be struggles between artists making their art and companies making their product, to be somewhat reductive. The problem is exacerbated now as films must congeal into bland, sorta funny sorta actiony shared universes where none can be particularly unique lest the precious house style by violated.In this System, the auteurs aren’t the directors but the producers like Marvel’s Kevin Feige and Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy. They are the ones with the creative vision that trumps all others. But unlike directors and writers, producers’ primary concerns aren’t making individual pieces of art but rather managing the larger #brand. They’re talented people.Forget Star Wars, look at all the visionary directors the Marvel Cinematic Universe has burned. Edgar Wright spent almost a decade working on Ant-Man before it was stolen from him. Patty Jenkins got kicked off Thor 2, which turned out so great. Joss Whedon would rather put a gun to his head/direct Justice League before directing a third Avengers. James Gunn is the only singular creative voice to last a full trilogy, and I suspect that’s because his cosmic Guardians of the Galaxy adventures are so disconnected he can do basically what he wants, for now. Lord knows what I’ll do if Ryan Coogler isn’t allowed to fully express himself with Black Panther.In this neo Studio System, the auteurs aren’t the directors but the producers like Marvel’s Kevin Feige and Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy. They are the ones with the creative vision that trumps all others. But unlike directors and writers, producers’ primary concerns aren’t making individual pieces of art but rather managing the larger #brand. They’re talented people. They weren’t responsible for The Mummy.But they perpetuate a soulless process, a corporate machine that grinds folks up for daring to have the creative vision that made them attractive to the project in the first place. The Star Wars machine should be begging for Lord and Miller to do their thing with Han Solo, not punishing them (and their folded socks) for it. But the movies make billions and audiences passively enjoy them so what do I know about art and business.Again, filmmaking, especially when it comes to huge, tentpole, Chinese-funded films, is a collaborative process. Everyone from directors to producers to grips make valid contributions. But it’s no mistake that the best franchise films, like, say, Spider-Man 2 or The Dark Knight, are the result of directors saying what they want to say and having the studio support their voice. Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, and any other machine (as well as all the misguided fans who put their faith in the machine rather than people) should remember that their films are only cool when creative artists are allowed and encouraged to make them cool.View as: One Page Slides1/81. The cast of the Han Solo movie before the directors were fired months into shooting.2. If Lord and Miller could make The Lego Movie awesome and not pointless, why would you fire them from your Han Solo movie?3. A long time ago, a very cool writer and director named George Lucas (seen here) resisted studio meddling and made a movie called Star Wars. Given all the director drama, the Disney folks in charge of Star Wars now didn’t learn the right artistic lessons.4. Auteur theory gave us legends like Steven Spielberg, but the studios controlling big franchises like Star Wars struggle with the idea of giving directors creative control.5. Edgar Wright spent almost a decade working on Ant-Man before before Marvel pulled the plug since Wright’s style didn’t “fit” with the MCU. Lame.6. Not all auteurs with total control are great, though. Consider Tyler Perry.7. After being replaced by Alan Taylor on the bad Thor sequel, Patty Jenkins replaced Michelle MacLaren to make a fantastic Wonder Woman debut film.8. No matter who directs it, a Han Solo origin film is just a bad idea.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

The La Center City Council will once again consider repealing a resolution opposing the Cowlitz Indian Tribe’s casino project.The new resolution — Resolution No. 11-340 — would replace the original resolution the council adopted in May 2007.The council will decide whether to adopt the new resolution at its meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall.Resolution No. 11-340 takes a much different tone than the original resolution.“The City hereby determines to actively engage the Cowlitz Tribe in government-to-government relations and work to integrate the Tribe’s development into the City of La Center, its urban services systems and the larger north Clark County community,” according to the resolution.In December, the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs approved the tribe’s application to take 152 acres into trust and build a large casino-hotel complex near the Interstate 5 junction. Clark County filed an appeal in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., last month. The county was joined by the city of Vancouver, nearby property owners, operators of the four La Center cardrooms, and Citizens Against Reservation Shopping.The city of La Center hasn’t taken a stand regarding the casino since the BIA’s December ruling.“The current city council understands that, while the tribal development’s impacts could be negative, they could also be beneficial if effectively integrated into La Center’s plan for economic diversity, including the city’s sanitary sewer and transportation systems,” according to the resolution. In the last few years, the city has spent “considerable resources” to expand its urban growth boundary and provide services to the junction, according to the resolution. The city is now in the process of annexing land from city limits west to the I-5 interchange. read more

An overview of the report was published recently in the journal Science.“The bold but feasible cross-cutting initiatives in this report will improve outcomes for patients with cancer, prevent cancer and increase our understanding of cancer,” said Lowy. “NCI stands ready to accelerate cancer research in the critical areas identified by the Blue Ribbon Panel.”In January 2016, during his State of the Union address, President Obama announced the Cancer Moonshot “for the loved ones we’ve all lost, for the families we can still save.” The NCI’s scientific road map outlined by the BRP is one component of the Cancer Moonshot’s broader effort focused on accelerating progress on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Under the Vice President’s leadership, a full set of recommendations for leveraging federal investments, private sector efforts, patient initiatives and more under the mission will be announced later this fall. The 10 transformative approaches poised for acceleration are:Engage patients to contribute their comprehensive tumor profile data to expand knowledge about what therapies work, in whom and in which types of cancer;Establish a cancer immunotherapy clinical trials network devoted exclusively to discovering and evaluating immunotherapy approaches;Identify therapeutic targets to overcome drug resistance through studies that determine the mechanisms that lead cancer cells to become resistant to previously effective treatments;Create a national ecosystem for sharing and analyzing cancer data so that researchers, clinicians and patients will be able to contribute data, which will facilitate efficient data analysis;Improve our understanding of fusion oncoproteins in pediatric cancer and use new preclinical models to develop inhibitors that target them;Accelerate the development of guidelines for routine monitoring and management of patient-reported symptoms to minimize debilitating side effects of cancer and its treatment;Reduce cancer risk and cancer health disparities through approaches in development, testing and broad adoption of proven prevention strategies;Predict response to standard treatments through retrospective analysis of patient specimens;Create dynamic 3-D maps of human tumor evolution to document the genetic lesions and cellular interactions of each tumor as it evolves from a precancerous lesion to advanced cancer; andDevelop new enabling cancer technologies to characterize tumors and test therapies.“Thanks to the coalescence of new scientific insights and technological innovations, cancer research is poised to make unprecedented advances,” said NIH Director Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D. “The approaches identified by the Blue Ribbon Panel offer exceptional promise in tipping the odds in favor of cancer patients.”In addition to the 10 scientific approaches, the road map has specific, special projects. These include a demonstration project to test for Lynch syndrome, a heritable genetic condition that increases risk of several types of cancer, to improve early detection and prevention; the establishment of a nationwide pediatric immunotherapy clinical trials network to enhance the speed with which new immunotherapies can be tested in children; exploring patient-derived organoids; and “microdosing” devices to test drug responses in living tumors.The Cancer Moonshot scientific road map creates a vision for the future of cancer research and treatment in which:Patients contribute their data, obtain genomic profiling information about their tumor, learn about what treatments might work best given their tumor’s genomic profile and find other relevant information, including clinical trials that may be appropriate;Researchers can identify possible targets for the development of new treatments and preventive interventions, including immunotherapies, as well as learn more about how to avoid or counter drug resistance; andDoctors have access to information that better predicts treatment outcomes and helps control patients’ symptoms and side effects.Lowy will share the report with the Cancer Moonshot Task Force.“NCI greatly appreciates Vice President Biden’s leadership of and passion for the Cancer Moonshot. The Vice President has galvanized the community to move forward so we can greatly improve our ability to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer,” said Lowy. “The efforts of the BRP and working group members have been extraordinary, and I thank them for their time, energy and ideas. I am confident that the cancer community will build on this effort and seize this unprecedented opportunity to accelerate progress.”For more information: www.sciencemag.org/journals FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

Union leaders from the Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) on Tuesday announced they will go on strike next Monday, suspending all customer service for that day.Fabio Chaves, coordinator of the Employee Internal Front Union said the protest is to draw attention to a phone number portability process that ICE must abide by.Portability allows customers to move from one operator to another without changing their phone number. Chaves said that “while in most countries the [portability] process happens 10 years after the market is opened, in Costa Rica it will be allowed just a year and a half later.”Last week, ICE refused to sign a contract with the company responsible for providing the portability system. ICE union leaders said the decision by the Telecommunications Superintendency “only aims to favor multinational corporations.”He added that “while in other countries the user must pay for the portability when switching from one operator to another, in Costa Rica it will be free. But since there is a cost for conducting this process, customers will end up paying for it with higher rates.”Chaves said union members also will protest against an electricity bill currently being discussed in the Legislative Assembly, and against political appointments in top posts at ICE. The “General Electricity Bill” would increase private firms’ participation in the generation of electricity.He added that workers could strike indefinitely during the month of May if Monday’s protest fails to generate results.

Flexjet has just introduced its newly revamped Walk Away Lease program as a response to its customers changing needs. It is a traditional lease (rental) on a share with monthly payments and minimal cash deposit. The program, available on all models and classes, provides many of the benefits that come with fractional ownership, but with the option to exit the contract with just 90-days notice or immediately following the purchase and delivery of a fractional share. The length of the contract ranges from 24 to 60 months, with the monthly lease payment fixed for the length of the contract. The owner walks away at the end of the contract without any risk or obligation at the end of the term. In just a few short months, this timely program has been responsible for more than 30 percent of Flexjet’s business this year by delivering the right product at the right time. And our owners benefit by being able to retain their capital for other purposes or deploy it differently as circumstances evolve and the economy recovers.www.flexjet.com read more
Crazy Rich Asians NEW YORK, N.Y. – From the time Ricky Yean first heard about “Crazy Rich Asians,” he’s been excited to see the movie — and not because he likes romantic comedies (although, for the record, he does.)For the Taiwanese-American who moved to the U.S. when he was 11, here was something he hasn’t seen — a movie from a major Hollywood studio, with a cast of Asian-American and Asian actors. So when it comes out Wednesday, “I definitely will go and line up,” the San Francisco resident said, and “make sure I go see it and bring all my friends.”But Sangeetha Thanapal won’t. Even though it’s set in her native Singapore, when she saw the trailer, she said all she saw was a story centred on a specific subset of the already well-represented Chinese-Singaporeans who make up the majority of that country’s population, and no real reference to the minority communities like the Indian-Singaporean one her family hails from. “This movie is going global,” said Thanapal, currently living in Melbourne, Australia, “and the idea of Singapore is that we don’t exist in it.”Based on the bestselling first book in the trilogy by Kevin Kwan, “Crazy Rich Asians” is making it clear that “representation” can look very different depending on where you’re standing.The premise is a fish-out-of-water story revolving around Rachel Chu, a middle-class Chinese-American woman who goes with her Chinese-Singaporean boyfriend Nick Young to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore and finds out he and his family are, well, crazy rich. She has to deal with all that entails, including his disapproving mom.Helmed by director Jon M. Chu and with an international cast including Asian-American actresses Constance Wu and Awkwafina, British-Malaysian newcomer Henry Golding, and longtime Malaysian star Michelle Yeoh, the Warner Bros. film has spurred excitement among Asian-Americans thrilled to see actors who look like them in all the leading roles of a major Hollywood studio film for the first time since 1993’s “The Joy Luck Club.”“When you grow up as not being the dominant culture in America, we’ve had to grow up learning and training ourselves to see ourselves in characters and images and people that look very different from us, mostly white people,” said actor and comedian Jenny Yang. But someone like the character of Rachel “is kind of like me … it’s just kind of nice to let your hair down and say, ‘Wow, I can actually see someone where I don’t need to flex this muscle of closing the gap between me and the person.’”The stars of the movie themselves have been clear about how groundbreaking they feel the movie is and urged movie-goers to support it, with Wu writing on social media, “I hope Asian-American kids watch CRA and realize that they can be the heroes of their own stories.”Just because something is representative in one context doesn’t mean it’s representative for others, say Thanapal and others who have critiques of the world the movie showcases and have pushed back against the idea that it’s something they need to support so that studios see this kind of casting as economically viable.“Everyone else is told you have to care, even though we are not represented, we can’t see ourselves,” said Thanapal, an activist against racism facing Singapore’s Indian, Malay and other minority communities.“You set a movie in Singapore and the only people in it are Chinese and you consider that representation? That is the problem — it’s because you don’t understand the dynamics,” she said. “When people say that is the world of Singapore, they’re saying that minorities don’t exist.”Singaporean writer Kirsten Han was uncomfortable with a movie that is about a very specific world — super-rich Chinese-Singaporeans — being promoted as a win for representation overall.“Yes, it is a win for representation. In America,” she said. “The lack of ethnic minorities, who do make up a significant part of the population, is just the same kind of Chinese-majority dominance that we would see in any other media in Singapore.”The film does feature a scene at a night market where vendors at various shops explain how each has perfected one dish over generations.Those involved with the movie have said that it’s only a piece of the whole. Wu wrote, “For those who don’t feel seen, I hope there is a story you find soon that does represent you. We’re not all the same, but we all have a story.”___Deepti Hajela covers issues of race, ethnicity and immigration for The Associated Press. Follow her on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/dhajela.

High stakes for NBC News ahead of 2-night Democratic debate AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email In this June 24, 2019, photo, a billboard advertises the Democratic Presidential Debates across from the Knight Concert Hall at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County, in Miami. Don’t envy NBC News executive Rashida Jones, who is behind this week’s inaugural Democratic presidential debate and will have to juggle 20 candidates, five news personalities and, it’s likely, one tweeting president.. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky) NEW YORK — Don’t envy NBC News executive Rashida Jones, who is behind this week’s inaugural Democratic presidential debate and will have to juggle 20 candidates, five news personalities and, it’s likely, one tweeting president.While the event is obviously important for politicians getting their first wide exposure as potential presidents, the stakes are high for NBC News, too.“Primary debates are a big prestige event for every network,” said Mark Lukasiewicz, dean of Hofstra University’s school of communication, who had Jones’ job four years ago. “It’s why every network tries to get one and tries to get as many as they can. It’s a branding opportunity.”The debate will unfold over four hours Wednesday and Thursday, 10 candidates each night , and will air on NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo. Lester Holt, Savannah Guthrie, Jose Diaz-Balart, Rachel Maddow and Chuck Todd will be the NBC News personalities onstage in Miami.NBC has been skittish about revealing too much in advance. The network won’t talk about topics on the agenda — that’s typical — and until Tuesday kept under wraps details about how it would run. With less than 48 hours’ notice, NBC announced the candidates would have 60 seconds to answer questions and 30 seconds for follow-ups. The candidates will be allowed closing statements but no openers.The goal was to focus attention where it should be, said Jones, NBC News’ senior vice-president for specials.“The show is not about the moderators,” she said. “It’s not about NBC. We have the responsibility of being the conduit for the audience, but the focus is about the 10 people on the stage.”It’s revealing that Jones frequently uses the word “show” in reference to the production. With so many candidates, debate may be a misnomer.“It’s a sound bite competition,” Lukasiewicz said.NBC’s decision to include five of its own people also crowds the stage. They won’t be on at the same time: The teams of Guthrie and Diaz-Balart, and Todd and Maddow, will moderate an hour each night, with Holt and Guthrie a constant presence. Some debate experts wonder if this will hurt the event’s flow and cost opportunities for conversational follow-ups.Jones said the personalities represent “our starting lineup” and have considerable experience on live television and in working together.“The beauty of having so many people on the set is that there may be something that one person catches, but the others didn’t,” she said.President Donald Trump’s social media presence is a unique challenge. Does NBC ignore what the president is saying or make it a part of the debate? If so, does that risk the president hijacking a debate of people who want his job?It’s hard to commit to anything in advance, but Jones said NBC’s concentration will be on the candidates onstage and the issues. “Beyond that, it has to rise to a certain level,” she said.One goal for NBC is to match the 24 million viewers that Fox News Channel had for the first GOP primary debate in 2016. That may be tough, since Trump’s first debate appearance motivated curious viewers.NBC will have an offstage timekeeper trying to ensure fairness in how each candidate is treated. It’s a walk on a tightrope. The entire event is, frankly; one mistake can swivel unwanted attention to the network.NBC knows how that works. Matt Lauer was roasted for how he conducted back-to-back live interviews of Trump and Hillary Clinton at a 2016 forum on the USS Intrepid, both for not pressing Trump about inconsistencies on his Iraq War positions and for the amount of attention paid to Clinton’s email controversy.“Trump should have reported (Lauer’s) performance as an in-kind contribution,” Clinton wrote in her book “What Happened.”A CNBC-sponsored Republican primary debate in late 2015 was generally seen as disastrous, in part because Trump bulldozed past co-moderator Rebecca Quick when she couldn’t quickly cite the source of a statement that he denied saying (the quote came from a Trump policy paper).Holt, however, received some praise for a steady performance in a Trump-Clinton debate.“There are so many eyes on you and so many people with agendas,” said David Bohrman, a news consultant who organized 10 debates while at CNN.Through rehearsals and endless meetings, Jones and her staff are trying to anticipate what it can while remaining nimble enough to react to the unexpected. Like with baseball umpires, it will probably be bad news if people are talking the mornings after about NBC and not the candidates.“I like doing something the way it’s never been done before,” she said. “I’ll take a two-night unpredictable event over doing it the way we’ve always done it.”David Bauder, The Associated Press by David Bauder, The Associated Press Posted Jun 25, 2019 7:24 am PDT read more
The construction of an oncology centre in Limassol will be delayed due to complicated negotiations between the Bank of Cyprus and the health ministry.Plans were expected to be finalised by June this year.“The Bank of Cyprus is just trying to find the best way to provide services that don’t already exist for the patients,” a source said on Friday. This has to do with uncertainties over the national health scheme, but also with the fact that a new private oncology hospital will soon open to cover some of the needs.“There was initially a plan to increase the number of linear accelerators from three to five, but the German centre in Limassol will have two so if the need is served why should we spend money on this equipment?” the source, said referring to equipment that that administers radiation treatment to patients.“The new clinic also provides for brachytherapy, and they are very good at this nuclear medicine, so we should cover something else for which there is a need,” the source added. Brachytherapy treats cancer by inserting radioactive implants directly into the tissue.It is not a matter of not wanting to spend the money, but there are strong opinions on all sides on how to best spend it, the source added.After signing an agreement, The Bank of Cyprus started discussing technical details with the health ministry in January.No exact budget has yet been set aside for the project, as the amount depends on the needs and has not yet been calculated, but the bank expects its initial commitment will be in the region of €11 million, of which €7m is estimated to be for infrastructure and €4.5m for equipment. Not all the money will be needed right at the beginning but it will be supplied in stages.The bank has committed itself to financing the bulk of the much-needed new facility while the state will also pay for some of the building and equipment.The centre is seen as being vital as patients currently have to travel from Paphos and Limassol to Nicosia for treatment, some leaving as early as 5am from Paphos by bus.There are an estimated 3,500 new cancer cases every year, half of which need radiotherapy. About 40 per cent of these patients live in Limassol and Paphos.The new radiation and oncology centre will be located on state land near the Limassol general hospital and will cater for patients from the Limassol and Paphos areas. The three floors of the building are expected to be built and equipped within three years after plans are finalised by the bank and the ministry.The new private oncology clinic, called the German centre as its founder Nicolaos Zamboglou headed the department of radiotherapy and radio oncology in Offenbach, Germany, for nearly 25 years, is nearing completion.It is located near the sea in Ayios Athanasios.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

The group also said the only way President Buhari can display any sort of love for Nigeria is to quietly bow-out of government in 2019 The statement reads: “We have read the statement written by former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Chief Olusegun Obasanjo GCFR where he gave a withering assessment of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari “In his statement Chief Obasanjo stated the many obvious failings of the Buhari administration and their negative effects on all aspects of the Nigerian economy “We commend Chief Obasanjo for speaking the truth at a time when the Nigerian people are bearing the negative effects of the Buhari administration “We call on President Buhari to heed the advice given by Chief Obasanjo and refrain from contesting the 2019 presidential elections This is the only way President Buhari can display any sort of love for a country that is creaking under the weight of his misrule “Anything short of this will lead to the Nigerian people delivering a withering and embarrassing defeat to the President Buhari next year A word is enough for the wise” A 32 year-old former Boko Haram Commander Rawana Goni has appealed to the Nigerian military authorities to allow him make a phone call to the elusive leader Abubakar Shekau and at least 137 other terrorists to make them surrender Goni who is undergoing rehabilitation at a military detention camp in Maiduguri said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) The former Boko Haram commander is an indigene of Bama in Borno state He surrendered to the military in Cameroon after escaping from Sambisa Forest eight months ago He claimed to have held several positions in ten different cells of Boko Haram in Sambisa He said the last position he held was as the Chief officer of Dispute Resolution for the group He explained that many militants came to him to settle problems ranging from family matters He also reconciled Boko Haram factions “I rescued people sentenced to death and minimised punishment of those who committed crimes I am one of the most influential persons in the group and they always listened and abided by what I said “I joined Boko Haram because of the condition I found myself in the last five years When the insurgents invaded Bama town I ran with my family to Cameroon thinking I was in a safe destination “But on reaching Cameroon I was shocked to realise that I brought myself into another Boko Haram camp By that time I knew I would not survive without joining the group “Days after my induction we opened a permanent camp at the Cameroon border and named the forest “Aluska” It was in that camp that I learnt all types of trainings including handling weapons “After the training we embarked on our first missionWe invaded a military formation in Cameroon dislodged the soldiers and took many weapons from their armoury We couldn’t take any vehicle because the area was surrounded by river “We took the weapons we recovered to our leader Abubakar Shekau and briefed him on our success He was happy that five of us could dislodge a military formation After congratulating us he appointed me to lead the group and returned our weapons to us “Few days later I recruited many fighters because as a commander you are expected to have no fewer than 250 fighting troops “With the new fighting force we invaded Waza village Damaga and Banki We also invaded Bama which is my hometown “I was touched to see my people being tortured and killed while many women and children were living in excruciating hardship So I decided to pass a message to my fellow insurgents from Bama and we formed a group comprising of about 137 persons to help our people in prison to escape “I was able to rescue about 300 hostages at the prison facility in Bama I usually lied to the guards at the prison that I was going to kill the inmates But I would take them to a safe place in Konduga and ask them to run to a safer destination “Many of the prisoners were exposed to hard labour while some were used as guinea-pigs at shooting range by new arms handlers among Boko Haram” he said On Abubakar Shekau’s health status Goni told NAN that the insurgents’ leader was healthy as against a report that he was ill “Nothing happened to him He broke his leg five years ago while riding on a horse But he had since recovered Any one saying Shekau is sick is only deceiving himself We used to communicate through radiophone but not any more” Goni who believed that the war was coming to an end urged the military to let him tell Shekau and other insurgents that he is still alive “My 137 boys are on standby to hear I am still alive and I can assure you they will run out of Sambisa Forest and surrender to the military I once told them to surrender and they said we shall all get killed But I told them that I will surrender and they said if nothing happened to me they will all come out” he said Goni commended the military for the special treatment given to inmates who surrendered “They received us with joy and interact with us at all time They feed us well and always want to know our problems If other Boko Haram members knew how we are being treated they will never want to remain where they are” he said A statement signed by its convener,爱上海Chamberlain, where was it?

Anundson said, nonprofit compiled the statistics and issued "The Facts Hurt: A State-by-State Injury Prevention Policy Report" a checklist of policies states could institute released last weekThese policies include for example stronger enforcement of seatbelt laws or requiring convicted drunk drivers to install devices that check their breath before their vehicles will startNorth Dakota has among the fewest of these safety policies with just three out of 10 while Minnesota has five of the suggested policies"It isn’t the best we know that we would definitely like improvement" said Mary Dasovick director of the Division of Injury Prevention and Control an arm of the North Dakota Department of Health "We do have to work with what we have now and try to make improvements through policies or laws" Following the 2011 legislative session North Dakota joined 36 other states in adding a youth sport concussion law which requires all schools with athletic activities to take part in a concussion management program The program requires coaches to have biennial training and remove students from play if they report signs of a concussion Likewise the program requires the removed athlete to be examined promptly and they may not return to active play without a thorough examination "There are a higher percentage of concussions being seen as a result of the law" said Matt Roller a private-practice neurologist in Grand Forks "The numbers are great because the younger a person has a concussion the more long-term repercussions there may be so we’re glad they are being recognized earlier"Roller said the law has also helped keep young athletes from recurrent concussions which are easier to obtain after the first one North Dakota was also recognized by "The Facts Hurt" for allowing people in dating relationships — not just mar-ried partners — to obtain protection orders and for its prescription drug monitoring program Authorized in 2005 by the Legislature the state requires all pharmacists to report all prescribed and dispensed controlled substances electronically to the North Dakota Board of Pharmacy Monitoring programs make it easier to detect drug abuse or if drugs are being siphoned for illegal purposesMore work aheadBut there’s more that North Dakota could do according to "The Facts Hurt"The state does not automatically require convicted drunk drivers to use ignition interlocks which are breathalyz-ers connected to their vehiclesThe state also does not require motorcyclists or young bicyclists to wear helmets And it does not require car seats for children 8 or youngerIt does not have a primary seat belt law which allows police officers to issue a ticket for not wearing seatbelts without any other traffic offense The state has a secondary seat belt law and officers may only issue a ticket for not wearing seat belts if there is another traffic offense involvedThe state has no system in place to collect data about injuries Hospitals and clinics may report only that there was an injury but not the cause of the injury which is needed to detect dangerous trends and develop policies to manage themCarma Hanson coordinator of Safe Kids Grand Forks a coalition to educate and prevent injuries said the state’s score largely reflects the state legislature and laws "There are a lot of people who are going to do something because the law tells them to" she said "Legislation leads to education and education leads to compliance with safety standards"Legislative issuesStill North Dakota has addressed many of the policies "The Facts Hurt" discusses if not as completely as the re-port recommendsConvicted drunk drivers aren’t automatically required to have ignition interlocks but judges can require it at their discretionMotorcyclists aren’t required to wear helmets unless they are minorsMotorists can’t be ticketed only for failure to wear seat belts but they can be if they’re minorsHanson said she believes a universal primary seat belt law will probably come during the 2013 legislative session But state Sen Dave Oehlke R-Devils Lake vice chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee suggested it probably won’t change anythingLaw enforcement officials have told the committee a primary seat belt law is not cost effective or beneficial he said "Frankly most people wear a seatbelt" he said "We find particular accidents have other factors involved where a seatbelt may have not prevented any injuries"Hanson said of the 148 traffic deaths last year 60 percent involved motorists who didn’t wear seatbeltsOn the other hand Oehlke said a universal helmet law which the Legislature repealed in 1977 might make some headway "If that came in front of our committee I think there would be some good support" he said "But there would be a lot of people who would complain"A helmet law for bicyclists would be less popular mostly because enforcement would be costly he said "If we had twice the number of people to attend to all those little laws then it would be different"Not waiting for the state to take action Hanson said advocates like her are pushing for a Grand Forks city law to require bike helmets She said she hopes the local law would take the same path the ban on texting and driving did becoming state law a year after it became city law"It’s nice when there is consistency throughout the state rather than individual cities having their own" she said Reach Jerke at (701) 787-6736; (800) 477-6572 ext 6736; or send email to tjerke@gfheraldcomThe commander of Operation Safe Haven (OPSH) saddled
