It’s something many of us do without a second thought: punch in your phone number at the check stand for your supermarket membership program.A discount’s a discount, right? But thinking twice might have better served a Vancouver man who is now under arrest after he entered in his phone number at an area grocery store — and allegedly paid for the purchase with a stolen credit card.Darren W. Olson, 31, was booked Friday on suspicion of two counts of forgery and one count of 3rd degree theft, according to Vancouver Police Department Officer Ilia Botvinnik.Olson is suspected in an Aug. 8 case in which a man stole a purse from an office near Westfield Vancouver mall and used its owner’s credit cards to go on a shopping spree. The victim appealed for help through interviews with The Columbian and a Portland television station.Botvinnik said police appreciate the tips received, though in this case, the alleged thief’s own fingers cracked the case. There’s no word on whether he got the discount.

Lawmakers now say it’s all but inevitable the legislature will approve the governor’s request to buy out TransCanada and take a larger stake in the Alaska LNG project. A vote is expected early next week.This map shows the likely route of the Alaska LNG project, as of August 2015. Map courtesy of Alaska LNGTransCanada itself has testified in favor of the buyout.But even as they prepare to approve the deal, lawmakers are raising concerns about the state’s ability to take the company’s place at the table.Download AudioThe way the TransCanada deal was originally set up, the state and the company share a 25 percent stake in the Alaska LNG project — and a 25 percent vote on project decisions.In a hearing on Wednesday, TransCanada director Vincent Lee explained that that arrangement only works if there’s a melding of the minds – and when Gov. Bill Walker’s administration took over from previous Gov. Sean Parnell, that was no longer the case.“As we see, the administration is thinking about doing the project in a different way,” Lee said. “We don’t feel the alignment is as strong as it used to be. And that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a bad thing, it’s just that, you know, we are approaching the project from a different angle.”When asked what would happen if the legislature doesn’t approve the buy-out, Lee said TransCanada would have to seriously consider exiting the deal anyway — in which case, the state would still be obligated to pay their costs.That wouldn’t seem to leave lawmakers with much of a choice, and by Thursday morning, Senate President Kevin Meyer (R-Anchorage) was willing to say so.“I think we’re going to end up doing as the administration has asked us to, and to buy out TransCanada,” Meyer said. “And it seems to be the right thing to do for the state of Alaska at this time.”But even as they move closer to the buyout, lawmakers expressed concern about whether the state is ready to take over the company’s role — and with it, a full 25 percent stake in a $45 to $65 billion gas line megaproject.For days, lawmakers have been asking who’s in charge of the state’s effort — and received no clear answer.One possible candidate is Dan Fauske, the head of the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation, which represents the state in the project. When AGDC representatives showed up to testify before the Senate Finance Committee, co-chair Anna MacKinnon (R-Eagle River) had one question:“Gentlemen, the first question out of the gate is, where is Dan Fauske?” she asked.Joe Dubler is Vice President for Commercia Operations at AGDC. He“Frank Richards and myself were asked to present to the committee today, and the other gentlemen you mentioned were asked not to,” he said.“Who asked that Mr. Fauske not be in Juneau today?” MacKinnon asked.“Madam Chair, the attorney general for the State of Alaska is the one that’s running the special session for the governor,” Dubler replied. “And he asked that Mr. Fauske not be in Juneau today.”That did not go over well with the committee, which recessed until Fauske could be reached via phone, and later called in Attorney General Craig Richards himself.Richards explained his thinking this way: “The governor and commissioners and myself thought it best to bring the people to present to you that were the most technically knowledgeable on the subject,” he said. “So I think you’ll find that those are the people that have presented.”Senator Peter Micciche (R-Soldotna) said the tussle over AGDC was troubling for two reasons: one, it seemed like the administration was trying to limit lawmakers’ access to information. And, it revealed splits among the different agencies who will be taking over the state’s share of the project.“I’m not sure that those three entities – Department of Revenue, Department of Natural Resources, and AGDC – understand where they fit in that organization, and I think there’s internal tension,” Micciche said. “That internal tension is something that I believe was reflected in TransCanada’s willingness to exit the project.”But Micciche said he thinks the state will get there.“If we’re going to operate at the level of the other 75 percent ownership of this project,” he said. “That internal separation needs to come together.” read more

COPY LINKAD Loading … Tension between Iran and the United States have escalated in the last few months. The downward spiral, which started with US President Donald Trump’s move to scrap the nuclear deal, reached its worst point when the US contemplated a military strike on Tehran following the shooting down of a US drone by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. Though Trump called off the attack at the last moment, chances of a military confrontation remain potent.The deployment of an aircraft carrier battle group and other military combat equipment to the Persian Gulf by the US has made experts suspect that the US is preparing for war with Iran. Pentagon recently released an aggressive nuclear doctrine that lists nuclear weapons among other weapons of mass destruction.Pentagon has also decided to deploy 120,000 US troops to the Persian Gulf in preparation for future ‘retaliatory and offensive military operations’. The Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf is one of the most crucial points in the region and conflict here could threaten the world economy. More than a fifth of the global oil supply passes through this strategic channel. It links key crude oil-producing Gulf countries like Iran, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates with the rest of the world. Fears over a future war in such a region have made nations feel apprehensive of the cost that all countries will have to pay.Through the imposition of economic and defence sanctions on Iran, the White House has used the “maximum pressure” policy to protect regional security in the Gulf. The Iranian Armed Forces are ranked 14th out of 137 countries by Global Firepower’s 2019 Military Strength Ranking Index. It lost its 2018 rank of 13 due to the imposition of US sanctions placed on Iran in 2018. In 2018, Iran’s defence budget was estimated to be $13.2 billion according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) military expenditure database. However, Iran’s spending is dwarfed by that of regional rivals including Saudi Arabia ($68 billion) and Israel ($15.9 billion). The military spending of the and United States stands at $649 billion. However, Iran has adopted an aggressive posture as well, promising tough retaliation to any US attack. Iran also upped the ante by saying it would punish Israel if the US attacks it. It also declared that the country would increase its enriched uranium stockpile to 5 percent, breaching the 3.7 percent limit under the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran nuclear deal.If a war breaks out in the Persian Gulf between Iran and the US how would that play out? What are the weapons the adversaries would employ? What is the strategic and military depth of each side? Though it’s clear that US military prowess far outsmarts Iran’s it must be taken into account that the theatre of the war will Iran’s backyard.In a head-to-head comparison of military strength, Iran is no match for the US. Here’s a broad look into the military capabilities of Iran and the United States.How Iran and US stack up Tensions between Iran and the United States have escalated Close On the other hand the US is ranked number one by Global Firepower. in a list of 137 countries in terms of military power. After the Trump administration came to power, the US saw a jump in its military budget. While its 2018 budget stood at $649 billion, the largest in the world, the Pentagon has proposed a $750 billion budget for 2020, according to its National Defense Strategy that was unveiled in May. read more
“Bitter cold” is gripping a broad swath of the U.S., the National Weather Service warns, with dangerous wind chills and other hazards. Freezing temperatures are common across the Southern U.S. this week; in the North, multiple states report subzero conditions.States are declaring emergencies and cities are working to extend their shelter capacity. And at all levels, officials are telling people to stay inside unless they absolutely must be outdoors.If you insist on seeing the outdoors, you may want to rely on photos — like the images of sea smoke, steam devils and pancake ice from the edge of Lake Superior that Minnesota Public Radio is featuring.As the station’s Derek Montgomery writes, “The frigid temperatures had an upside in Duluth this week, bringing spectacular waves of sea smoke to the harbor. Sea smoke forms when colder air moves over warmer water, the same principle leads to lake-effect snows.”Sure it’s cold but LOOK, sea smoke! https://t.co/Jf4JpXGqcz pic.twitter.com/t9kq7XmzDZ— MPR News (@MPRnews) December 28, 2017In Vermont, where it was 10 degrees below zero Thursday morning in Burlington, member station Vermont Public Radio asked the Reddit community for tips on staying warm.The highlights, as listed by VPR, range from a reminder that shoveling snow can cause heart attacks to advice for avoiding frostbite and hypothermia and preventing carbon monoxide poisoning.The highest-ranked response to VPR’s Reddit callout was simple: “Add merino wool to your layers.”Among other suggestions: Try flannel-lined pants.“Starting around -25 you might want to think about covering your eyes, especially if it’s windy. Use a wool scarf,” a Reddit user named TaoistInquisition wrote. “Layer but don’t let yourself sweat, if you are stuck outside and you are sweaty, you are at a high risk!”Another person wrote, “Aside from the valuable information already posted here, use matches not lighters. It seems silly but if your pilot goes out in February and you wake up freezing your lighter will not work.”And then there’s the way we feel about the cold. Acceptance helps, says a Redditor called thisguyisahippy:“My best tip is to embrace it, be cold and enjoy it. You are generally not in any real danger as long as you made good preparations. Exercise in the morning while the fire is catching, stretch a lot and occasionally go out in the cold at night and experience the complete darkness and quiet which many will never get the chance or seize the opportunity to take.”He added, “Wool socks are a must.”For anyone driving in the intense cold, the suggestions included preparing your car as if it will break down: Keep a pair of winter boots in the car and pack it with a sleeping bag and hand warmers.While it’s a good idea to let a car warm up before driving, Wisconsin Public Radio says that you should stay in your vehicle when you warm it up in the city of Eau Claire — or face a fine of more than $200.“In October, two vehicles were stolen in Eau Claire after being left running while unattended,” WPR reports, adding that “in both cases the owners were cited.”In Wyoming — the most dangerous U.S. state to drive in the snow, according to a Wyoming Public Media report — drivers should be particularly careful. An analysis from the SafeWise website found the chance of a snow-related crash was 1.5 out of 100,000 people.To help avoid accidents, drivers should maintain a 20-second gap with other vehicles and listen for the quiet that could signal black ice rather than snow under a car’s wheels, Safewise’s Sage Singleton tells WPM.New Hampshire Public Radio has more suggestions for drivers:Motorists: Keep your gas tanks at least half full to avoid a gas line freeze-up. Pack blankets, gloves, hats. Make sure your tires are properly inflated. Make sure your exhaust pipe is not clogged with snow or ice. Drive slowly. These are a few of the cold-weather tips provided by AAA. The National Association of Realtors maintains a list of ideas to winterize homes and prepare for cold weather. Public safety leaders remind people to also check on their supply of fuel oil and wood.In Montana, where the city of Malta’s low on Christmas morning of -31 degrees was 99 degrees colder than the 68 posted by Key West, Fla., on the same day, a key question is how much more snow people there can expect.Montana Public Radio says it will be heavy and could last through Sunday, depending on the behavior of a “plume of warm, moist, subtropical air known as ‘the Pineapple Express’ ” that’s moving across the area.The deep chill will last for days across much of the Northern half of the U.S. — including in Nebraska, where high temperatures might not rise above zero degrees this weekend, as Mike Tobias of member station NET News reports.High temps below zero possible this weekend #newx https://t.co/dr3tdRz5qA— Mike Tobias (@mtobiasNETNews) December 28, 2017The National Weather Service office in North Platte is telling folks in Nebraska, “Enjoy the ‘warm-up’ today, bitter cold temperatures return to the area this weekend.” The office predicts dangerous wind chills from -15 to -45 degrees on Sunday and Monday mornings.Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/. Beware of black ice. Roads may look clear, but they may still be slippery. “You get much below 10 degrees and salt is somewhat ineffective,” says Bill Boynton, spokesman for N.H. DOT, who recalled the flannel-lined jeans advice from one of his co-workers. If one experiences an automotive issue while driving, pull off to a safe place. FEMA has a winter weather toolbox. Its recommendations include keeping tabs on the latest forecast and having an extra emergency kit for the car. It also warns people to be careful not to overexert themselves when shoveling snow or pushing a vehicle out. Make sure windows are defrosted and clear. And be sure to clear snow and ice from the top of the vehicle. State Police continue to remind people of this, part of the negligent driving statute known as Jessica’s Law. Share read more
By ELIAS MESERET Associated PressADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) — Thousands mourned the Ethiopian plane crash victims on Sunday, accompanying 17 empty caskets draped in the national flag through the streets of the capital as some victims’ relatives fainted and fell to the ground.The service came one day after officials began delivering bags of earth to family members of the 157 victims of the crash instead of the remains of their loved ones because the identification process is expected to take such a long time.A priest cries at a mass funeral at the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia Sunday, March 17, 2019. Thousands of Ethiopians have turned out to a mass funeral ceremony in the capital one week after the Ethiopian Airlines plane crash. Officials have begun delivering bags of earth to family members of the 157 victims of the crash instead of the remains of their loved ones because the identification process is going to take such a long time. (AP Photo/Mulugeta Ayene)Family members confirmed they were given a 1 kilogram (2.2 pound) sack of scorched earth taken from the crash site. Many relatives already have gathered at the rural, dusty crash site outside Ethiopia’s capital.The victims Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 came from 35 countries and included many humanitarian workers headed to Nairobi.Elias Bilew said he had worked with one of the victims, Sintayehu Shafi, for the past eight years.“He was such a good person,” Bilew said. “He doesn’t deserve this. He was the pillar for his whole family.”French investigators said Saturday night that they had successfully downloaded the cockpit recorder data and had transferred it to the Ethiopian investigation team without listening to the audio files. Work on the flight data recorder resumed Sunday but no additional details were given.Experts from the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board and the plane’s manufacturer Boeing are among those involved in the investigation.The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has said satellite-based tracking data shows that the movements of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 were similar to those of Lion Air Flight 610, which crashed off Indonesia in October, killing 189 people. Both involved Boeing 737 Max 8 planes.The planes in both crashes flew with erratic altitude changes that could indicate the pilots struggled to control the aircraft. Shortly after their takeoffs, both crews tried to return to the airports but crashed.The United States and many other countries have now grounded the Max 8s as the U.S.-based company faces the challenge of proving the jets are safe to fly amid suspicions that faulty sensors and software contributed to the two crashes that killed 346 people in less than six months.___Associated Press writer Angela Charlton in Paris contributed to this report. read more

Mahahual, Q.R. — The beaches of Mahahual are once again sargassum free after a massive beach clean that saw the removal of the unwanted seaweed. He says the beach areas were freed of the washed up sargassum after the placement of networks to prevent the arrival of seaweed from reaching Mahahual shores. He says that more attention is needed from the government, both state and municipal, to ensure that tourists find the beaches clean and increase the length of their stay since some visitors were cutting their vacations short due to the sargassum-covered beach areas. Espadas says he is confident that the influx of tourists will increase toward the end of the month with the holiday summer season. Rodolfo Espadas, vice president of the Association of Entrepreneurs of Costa Maya, said that the sargassum issue has become a focus for some tourist providers, adding that it has been the effort of the tourism service providers themselves that has resulted in the cleaned beaches. “The effort we are making is showing good results because we can offer clean beaches without sargasso to visitors,” he said.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window) read more

smartphone app that could help improve adherence to medications — such as antiretroviral therapy (ART) — among people living with HIV by putting the prevention in their pocket The app — named Daily Reports of Using Medications or DRUM — could help lead people infected with the disease to quicker intervention in cases where a patient has missed a number of doses “Life expectancy has changed dramatically as a result of advances in pharmacotherapy which is wonderful but adherence is key You can live a long healthy life with HIV but you have to take your medicines on time” said lead author Sarahmona Przybyla Assistant Professor at University of Buffalo in New York in the US The study found that participants often didn’t take their medication as a result of a change in daily routine or because they simply forgot Use of substance abuse like alcohol or drugs was the other common reason for not taking medications The app has an inbuilt daily report which asks users to self-report on ART adherence as well as daily substance use Substance use has been found as one of the most reliable predictors of poor adherence to ART the researchers noted The researchers found that participants not only found the app easy and convenient to use they were also willing to provide honest responses to queries and fill the daily adherence report For participants who reported that they had used alcohol or drugs in the past 24 hours the app provides a series of follow-up questions that asks as to why they used the substance and where they were when they used it with a dropdown menu of answer choices “With this app we can reach out to people with HIV and say we’ve noticed you’ve been using substances and that seems to be related to the fact that you’ve missed your doses — what can we do to
