Meghan Markle brutally trolled for RAF 100 dress

first_imgMeghan Markle’s fashion choices have always made headlines – from bending Royal fashion rules before her marriage to abiding by them later. The Duchess of Sussex, nevertheless, left us impressed with her elegant looks each time.The Duchess of Sussex recently stepped out in a Little Black Dress by Dior for the 100th anniversary celebration of the Royal Air Force. Photo: ReutersEver since Meghan tied the knot with Prince Harry on May 19, she has mostly chosen neutral-coloured outfits for public events, except for those few occasions when she sported bright colours or the olive green dress that she wore to the christening ceremony of Prince Louis.Having worn a black dress, Meghan, once again, broke a Royal tradition. Black is considered a colour of mourning and members of the Royal family avoid wearing it.Meghan’s choice of dress disappointed netizens who then took to social media to troll her. While some said she looked old, others rebuked her for breaking the Royal tradition. Here’s what they said: Picture courtesy: Instagram/hautecouturenotebook Picture courtesy: Instagram/hautecouturenotebook Picture courtesy: Instagram/instahautecouture Picture courtesy: Instagram/instahautecoutureThis is not the first time that Meghan has been trolled for her fashion choices.

Danny Williams wont be facing sanctions for his softball teams role in

first_imgST. CROIX, N.S. – Former Newfoundland and Labrador premier Danny Williams will not be facing sanctions for his small role in a weekend dustup in rural Nova Scotia between two men’s softball teams, one of which he happens to own.Mike Branchaud, a spokesman for Softball Canada, confirmed Williams was on the field Saturday night in St. Croix, N.S., soon after a collision between two opposing players at home plate in the first inning.Branchaud said the famously pugnacious former premier was “part of the team staff there.”Williams’s Newfoundland Galway Hitmen were competing with the B.C. Sooke Loggers in the 2018 Men’s Canadian Fast Pitch Championship, which the Hitmen won.Soon after the collision, a few punches were thrown, most of the Hitmen left their bench and there was a brief flurry of pushing and shoving on the infield.A video taken from behind home plate shows Hitmen managers walking briskly onto the field, but none of them appear to take part in the fighting.“It lasted probably a whole 20 seconds — the actual shoving,” said Branchaud. “Both teams were given warnings and a strict talking-to … No staff members were involved. It was strictly players.”A few Newfoundland players were ejected from the game and the Loggers’ catcher received a game suspension.“It was an unfortunate incident and it was dealt with accordingly,” said Branchaud. “A lot of players patched things up that evening.”last_img read more

What you need to know Highlights from the federal governments fall economic

OTTAWA — The federal Liberals gave an update Tuesday on the government’s finances, and with it, how they plan to spend a windfall generated by better than expected economic growth.Here are some highlights from the fall economic update:— Positive economic developments have left the government with about $46.6 billion more to spend over five years than they’d projected in the 2017 budget.— The economic update details ways they plan to spend roughly $14.9 billion of that over five years, leaving the rest to pull down the deficit.— The deficit this fiscal year is now projected to be $18.4 billion, down from the spring projection of $25.5 billion. By 2021-2022, the deficit will fall to $10.9 billion. It had originally been projected to come in at $15.8 billion.— The government focused on four major spending measures in the update: indexing the Canada Child Benefit to cost of living increases, expanding the Working Income Tax benefit program, formalizing a promised cut to the small business tax rate and ongoing work to overhaul the tax code.— The indexation of the Canada Child Benefit project will now begin in July 2018, two years ahead of schedule. Over five years, the increases are projected to cost about $5.6 billion. As an example, the government says someone currently receiving the maximum amount of $6,400 for a child under six would see that rise to $6,496 next year, and $6,626 by 2019-2020.— Expanding the Working Income Tax Benefit program. The program is designed to account for the fact that when people go off government assistance and get a job, their paycheque may not be as high as government support and so there’s less incentive to work. The benefit seeks to make up some of that pay difference. The government says they’ll spend $500 million a year starting in 2019 to allow more people to qualify.— Taken together, measures to lower the small business tax rate to 10 per cent next year and nine per cent in 2019, along with ongoing overhauls to the tax code, will cost the government $1.3 billion between 2017 and 2022, but that doesn’t take into account one of the major changes coming to tax rules on how passive investments are handled.— Almost $9 billion in program spending is detailed in the update, some of which has not been previously announced at all, or has only been detailed in very broad strokes. Among the new programs: over $1 billion for Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Canadian Coast Guard Services over six years; $760 million for security at Canada’s embassies and consulates over six years; $4 million over two years to expunge the criminal records of Canadian previously convicted of consensual sexual activity with same-sex partners; $526 million for legalization marijuana and a further $150 million over six years to handle drug-impaired driving.The Canadian Press read more

Chennai beefs up security

“Following the Mahabodhi temple blasts on July 7 this year, we were asked to step up vigil at all key installations. So, we have increased scrutiny and put more men on duty. Further, the airlines are also doing their security checks now. Though we are not doing anything specific, we have tried to increase the layers of observation,” the official added. “There is no specific threat to Chennai airport. It is only a generic alert. Airports are always vulnerable places and since sensitive airstrips could be targeted, we increase vigil whenever the intelligence bureau alerts us,” said an airport official, who added that security at Chennai airport has been beefed up. In general, airport authorities curb visitors’ movement and also increase more layers of security checks, a week before Independence Day, Republic Day and during December on account of Babri masjid demolition day.But now, with the new terminals out of bounds for visitors, security agencies can heave a sigh of relief. With memories still vivid of the July 24, 2001, Bandaranaike airport blast in Sri Lanka where 26 aircraft were either damaged or destroyed in an LTTE attack, the month of July has always been hectic for security agencies in India.This year, July 21 and July 25 have been identified as days of potential threat. In Chennai, too, security has been beefed up, the Deccan Chronicle reported. read more

Bangladesh UN renews call for urgent aid to victims of worst flooding

“After surviving weeks of massive flooding, rural populations in Bangladesh are now facing months of painful and protracted misery because they have much reduced income,” Jorgen Lissner said ahead of a donor meeting in Geneva.”They have no income, damaged shelters, few assets, and are highly vulnerable to disease,” he added, calling the present situation a “quiet disaster” since the crisis from the worst flooding in years remained while earlier worldwide attention had ebbed.The floods wiped out large areas of croplands and damaged more than 4 million homes, but little more than $60 million in aid has so far come in from the international community, Elizabeth Byrs of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) told a news briefing in Geneva.Thousands of water sources are still contaminated by floodwater. Many farmers’ seed stocks were swept away, with the time for planting the new crop fast ending. They need seeds now if the next harvest in November is to meet the future food requirements of the south Asian country’s over 140 million people.More than half the population is dependent on agriculture to earn a living. With that sector now struggling, farmers and labourers have lost vital income opportunities. Alternative sources of income, especially for the poor, need to be generated quickly.Likewise, small business owners are struggling. The flood damaged or destroyed the assets of many entrepreneurs who will need support to regain their livelihoods. read more

Govts incompetent decisions could harm Guyanas future Jagdeo

Recent decisions taken by the incumbent Administration to reopen two sugar estates after initiating its closure, and its reluctance to review the oil contract signed with ExxonMobil, are clear indications that the Government is incompetent in handling the affairs of the country in an efficient manner.Opposition leader Dr Bharrat JagdeoThis is according to Opposition leader Dr Bharrat Jagdeo who told a media conference today that these decisions have the potential to harm the lives of Guyanese in the future, and could set back the development that could take place in Guyana in future years.The Skeldon and Enmore estates will reportedly be reopened by the end of March, in keeping with the State Minister’s recent pronouncements that Government will be keeping the divested estates running since it would make more economic sense for investors wanting to buy the estates to see them functioning.Part of the package of keeping the estates functioning would therefore require some of the over 5000 workers who were sacked from the state owned Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) to reemployed.The political Opposition and other stakeholders such as the Private Sector Commission had long called, even before the thousands of sugar workers were fired, for the Government to not close the estates but keep them running even as they look for avenues to privatize.

Gold and silver dominating Project News

first_imgLatest issue of International Mining Project News available (May 22): There has been much talk of gold and silver in the last few weeks on the back of GFMS and World Gold Council figures aswell as gold’s recent price surge. It is not surprising therefore that both metals have a significant presence within this issue of project news. With 38 projects featuring gold and 13 featuring silver there is undoubtedly a trend. Nonetheless, this issue shows that there is still lots going on outside of these two metals.   In iron ore, Sundance Resources has upgraded a substantial proportion of resources at its Mbalam project in Cameroon from Inferred to Indicated. The latest modelling has defined a combined Indicated resource of 1,600 Mt, comprising 169 Mt of high grade hematite at 60.5% Fe and 1,431 Mt of itabirite hematite at 38.0% Fe. This forms part of the overall JORC-code compliant resource defined on Exploration Permit 92, which totals a combined Indicated and Inferred resource of 2,500 Mt, comprising 215 Mt of high grade hematite and 2,325 Mt of itabirite hematite.Still in iron ore, Vale has approved the downward revision of its investment budget for 2009, reflecting the change in the average price of currencies in which its expected disbursements are denominated, revised equipment and implementation costs, delays mainly associated with environmental licences, and simplification or change in the scope of certain projects. According to the revised capex budget, $6.961 billion is to be invested in organic growth, of which $5.930 billion is on projects and $1.031 billion on research & development. The maintenance of existing operations has been estimated at $2.074 billion. Of course this affects the entire scope of Vale’s operations; however its Carajás project in Brazil will now receive finances of $455 million. This will go towards increasing the annual capacity by 30 Mt/y through investments in a new plant composed of primary crushing, processing and classification units. Once completed the capacity will stand at 160 Mt/y.In nickel, Western Areas and Kagara have executed a Heads of Agreement to enable Kagara’s Lounge Lizard nickel deposit to be mined using access from Western Areas’ Flying Fox mine decline in Australia. This will result in the consolidation of one of Australia’s largest, high grade nickel mines with a combined mineral resource of over 2.5 Mt at an average grade of 5.5% Ni containing about 140,140 t of nickel. In Brazil, Mirabela Nickel has made the first drawdown of $165 million under its $190 million Senior Loan. The company will use these funds to repay its $80 million Bridge Loan with Barclays and Credit Suisse, fund a $25 million Reserve Contingency Account under the Senior Loan facility, and to pay for the continued construction and development of the Santa Rita nickel project.Moving inevitably to gold, Atna Resources has made the first pour of around 300 oz of gold in doré at the newly re-started Briggs mine in Inyo County, California, USA. Ore mining commenced at the site in January, crushing and the loading of ore onto the leach pad started in March, and solution delivery to the leach pad began in April. Facility construction at the mine is now complete.One multi-commodity project which has received a huge boost is Minera Esperanza’s Esperanza copper/gold/silver/molybdenum project in Chile. It has signed definitive agreements for $1.05 billion in project financing provided by a consortium of senior lenders including Japan Bank for International Cooperation, Export Development Canada, KfW IPEX-Bank, and a commercial bank syndicate led by five Mandated Lead Arrangers and Joint bookrunners and also including two arrangers, Banco Santander and Natixis. Owned 70% by Antofagasta and 30% by Marubeni Corp, Minera Esperanza estimates that the project will cost some $2.3 billion overall. These reports are followed by many others in the 38 page issue.

Certain cities could become uninhabitable due to the heat say scientists

first_imgAs the summer season starts to make its appearance, temperatures around Australia are already breaking dangerous records, with scientists warning that if things don’t change and climate doesn’t cool down, certain cities are at risk of becoming unviable in the next few decades.A good example of this is the city of Hobart, that recorded six consecutive days with temperatures rising over 26C, something that hadn’t occurred for the past 130 years.And things are even worse in Darwin, with some surfaces already being as hot as 70C.The humidity only serves to make matters worse as the so-called ‘build-up’ season nears its close.Greek Australian professor of high performance architecture at the University of NSW Mattheos Santamouris is looking into ways to lower the temperatures, especially in the CBD, as the atmosphere becomes “oppressive” as he describes it.“The focus is often on the global impact of climate change, but we also need to understand what is happening at a local level, in our own cities,” Prof Santamouris told “If we can’t find a way to make our cities cooler, they will eventually become uninhabitable.”Last August, a research was conducted with the initiative of the local government in order to find which parts of the city were the hottest, with the help of a dedicated ‘energy bus’ and drones.The results of this investigation showed that mainly streets, roofs and parking lots give off the greatest amount of heat, raising the temperature of the surrounding areas as a result.“Black surfaces like bitumen absorb high amounts of solar radiation leading to high surface temperatures,” explained Prof Santamouris. “A material of around 70C may heat the air by 3C.”In researching ways to bring down the temperature, Prof Santamouris recommends the use of asphalt that doesn’t absorb heat.“In Darwin, you have overheating because there’s too much bitumen and not enough greenery,” he added.However, even the use of wildlife can only do so much once temperatures start entering the ‘red’ zone and the dampness starts kicking in.
