Norway Joins Forces with USA on Zero EmissionsNorway Joins Forces with USA on Zero Emissions

first_imgzoom As part of its efforts to develop green shipping, the Norwegian Maritime Authority has entered into an environmental agreement with the US state of California.“The agreement with California offers opportunities for Norway. We have a lot to contribute with when it comes to for instance green shipping, green data centres and climate-friendly production,” Vidar Helgesen, Norwegian Minister of Climate and Environment, said.Lasse Karlsen, Technical Director of the Norwegian Maritime Authority, who was part of the Norwegian delegation, gave a speech on green shipping at a seminar organized by the San Francisco Port Authority on August 3.Karlsen informed about NMA’s work on various zero emissions projects, such as the battery-powered ferry Ampere, and he talked about the Authority’s efforts on developing hydrogen-powered vessels.Helgesen also stressed the importance of Norway’s position within battery propulsion and autonomous ships.“Norway’s objective to become a green competitor and to develop new and environmentally friendly technology will however, also require international cooperation,” Helgesen said, adding that Norway has ambitious environmental objectives for 2030 and 2050, including zero emissions in the transportation sector.“A closer cooperation with California will contribute to the fulfilment of these objectives,” Helgesen concluded.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Budget Bulletin BetterSafer CommunitiesBudget Bulletin BetterSafer Communities

first_imgTo ensure Nova Scotians continue to enjoy safe, secure neighbourhoods, a number of investments are being made to deal with crime in communities. The province is investing $65 million over four years to hire an additional 250 police officers. These officers will address organized crime, street crime, child exploitation, illegal drugs and school safety. Nova Scotians are helping create a provincial crime prevention strategy. The Justice Minister’s Task Force on Safer Streets and Communities is holding meetings across the province to gather information on initiatives that have a positive impact on communities. More than $5 million is being invested to respond to Justice Merlin Nunn’s report on the inquiry into the death of Halifax resident Theresa McEvoy. All 34 recommendations of the report were accepted. Three-million dollars will be spent focusing on prevention and addressing the needs of families and youth in Nova Scotia. A newly formed Family and Youth Services section has been created at the Department of Community Services and additional staff will be hired to develop a provincial child and youth strategy. Another $461,000 will be invested to hire more mental health professionals to reduce delays in completing court-ordered assessments. Three-hundred-thousand dollars is being invested to hire two new Crown attorneys specializing in youth crime. A new attendance centre and bail supervision program in Halifax Regional Municipality will receive $1.3 million. Government is also committed to providing an update on the progress made in implementing the report’s recommendations in June. More than $1 million will be invested in two programs to keep homes and streets safer. A new public safety investigation unit has been established under the Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Act and will receive $559,000 in this fiscal year. Nova Scotia has set another Canadian first, becoming the first province to use GPS tracking to monitor offenders on house arrest and $499,000 will support this program in 2007-2008. -30- Note: For further 2007-08 budget information, see the Department of Finance website at .last_img read more

Mission Impossible – Fallout shoots to No 1Mission Impossible – Fallout shoots to No 1

first_imgLOS ANGELES, Calif. – After six movies, 22 years, countless bruises and a broken ankle, Tom Cruise’s death-defying “Mission: Impossible” stunts continue to pay off at the box office.“Mission: Impossible — Fallout” easily took the No. 1 spot on the domestic charts this weekend. Paramount Pictures estimates that it earned $61.5 million from 4,386 North American theatres.Not accounting for inflation, it’s a best for the long-running franchise, which has grossed $2.8 billion worldwide, and one of Cruise’s biggest too (just shy of “War of the Worlds’” $64.9 million debut in 2005). Internationally, the film earned $92 million from 36 markets which is also a franchise best.Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, “Fallout” has scored some of the best reviews in the series and has been in the news cycle for almost a year. Talk about the film started early, in August of 2017, when Cruise broke his ankle performing a stunt in London with video to prove it.“Paramount was strategically perfect in their marketing and publicity game,” said comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian. “They showed how important a star’s presence is in marketing the movie early on. Tom Cruise broke his ankle and they made that into a positive for the movie — it fed the Tom Cruise ‘Mission: Impossible’ mystique.”Second place went to “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again,” which fell 57 per cent in its second weekend in theatres, to earn $15 million. It was a much steeper decline than the first film, which dropped only 36 per cent between its first and second weekends.Denzel Washington’s “The Equalizer 2” slid to third with $14 million in weekend two, and “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation” took fourth with $12.3 million.The animated “Teen Titans Go! To the Movies,” a feature spinoff of the Cartoon Network television show about Robin and some of the lesser-known DC superheroes, was the only major film to open against “Fallout.” The Warner Bros. release earned $10.5 million and landed in fifth place.The film earned positive reviews from critics and younger audiences, but also faced a fair amount of animated competition from both “Hotel Transylvania 3” and “Incredibles 2,” which is still going strong in its seventh weekend and headed toward the $1 billion mark. As of Sunday the Disney/Pixar sequel had earned an estimated $996.5 million globally.But although $10.5 million might seem on the lower side, “Teen Titans” also cost only $10 million to produce.“Family movies like this will play for a lot of weeks,” said Warner Bros.’ domestic distribution president Jeff Goldstein. “The whole objective of this movie was to work with our cousins in other Warner units for brand identification.”Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theatres, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.1. “Mission: Impossible — Fallout,” $61.5 million ($92 million international).2. “Mamma Mia!

St Catharines woman arrested for arsonSt Catharines woman arrested for arson

Police say 55-year-old Janet Margaret Maclean of St. Catharines is responsible for at least seven car arsons since May.It was on July 10th, 2019 police say Maclean was arrested near Lake and Beech streets. They spotted a woman walking away in an area of St. Catharines that has been victimized by car fires in recent months.One resident has said that he found an improvised tinderbox under one of the cars that was targetted. Police say the accused would use whatever they could find to light on fire and destroy vehicles.While no one was injured in these fires there were concerns that the situation would escalate. Police say since last year there have been more than ten car fires in the residential area and police claim Maclean is tied to at least seven fires over the last three months.While the motive is still unclear investigators say they are confident Maclean was acting alone. Maclean will be attending a bail hearing in St Catharines. read more

Column Europe needs a new approach to illegal immigrationColumn Europe needs a new approach to illegal immigration

first_imgON THE 9th of October, President of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, and the EU Commissioner for Home Affairs, Cecilia Malmström, visited the small Italian island of Lampedusa where at least 311 migrants drowned as they attempted to enter the EU via Italy.In response to the Lampedusa tragedy, Barroso pledged €30 million of EU funding to the Italian authorities to help them tackle the illegal immigration crisis. But, with an estimated 8,400 migrants having already crossed the sea to Italy from North Africa this year alone, according to figures from the EU’s border agency Frontex and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), extra EU funds are only part of the solution.The Dublin II RegulationThe EU has been working on a Common European Asylum System (CEAS) since 1999, after the European Council meeting in Tampere, which has seen the introduction of a number of policies with the aim of harmonising asylum policy across the Union. Since the Tampere meeting, a number of legislative acts have been passed including the Council Regulation (EC) No 343/2003 or the Dublin II Regulation.The Dublin II Regulation clarified which Member State would be responsible for examining an asylum application. Under the regulation, an asylum seeker must seek refuge in the Member State where he/she first entered. Thus if the individual travels from Malta to France, the French authorities can send that person back to Malta where their asylum application would be processed. Initially, the Dublin II Regulation was attacked by Human Rights groups for failing to provide adequate protection for refugees.On the 21st of January 2011, the Strasbourg-based European Court for Human Rights (ECHR), not to be confused with the European Court of Justice (ECJ), found that the regulation failed to offer sufficient protection for those seeking it. The ECHR judgement was delivered in the M.S.S. v Belgium and Greece case, where an Afghan asylum seeker (who had travelled through Greece to Belgium) was deported back to Greece under the Dublin II Regulation after he attempted to apply for asylum in Belgium. The Afghan national successfully argued that if he was sent back to Greece that he would be at risk of degrading and inhuman treatment there.After the ECHR judgement, most EU states ceased to deport those who had entered their countries illegally via Greece, despite their obligation to do so under Dublin II Regulation.The Regulation has come under further pressure after the recent waves of refugees that have hit Italy and Malta since the intensification of the Syrian Civil War and the on-going clamp down of human rights in Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia. According to Frontex, there were 15,150 illegal border crossings into Italy and Malta, the Central and Western Mediterranean routes respectively, in 2012.This migratory wave has put the Italian, Maltese and Greek immigration and asylum systems under huge pressure. Greece, which is going through tough austerity measures, simply cannot afford to house the sheer numbers of asylum claimants. There is also a shortage of funds in Italy which means that refugees who do make it onto the Italian mainland only have a roof over their head for a maximum of 10 months before been forced to find shelter elsewhere.Malta, despite being in a better financial position than Greece or Italy, is also struggling to find extra funding to meet the needs of those who have arrived illegally on its shores.No solutions in sightDespite the tragedy of Lampedusa, northern Member States are reluctant to revise the Dublin II Regulation. At a Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) Council meeting, held in Luxembourg on the 7th and 8th of October, the issue of refugee ‘burden sharing’ was discussed by Ministers for Justice and the Interior. Unsurprisingly, northern Member States, particularly Germany, shot down that proposal.Indeed, the concept of ‘burden sharing’ has been raised before, when Spain experienced a wave of illegal migration in 2006. By the end of 2006, 30,000 people landed on the Canary Islands provoking the Spanish authorities to ask for assistance from its EU neighbours, in resettling some of the migrants. The Spanish call for help, like Malta’s was discussed by the JHA Council, however Member States refused to heed Spain’s calls to revise the Dublin II Regulation.The only policy that the JHA Council could agree on at the October meeting was to increase co-operation between Member States and the countries that are a source of much of the illegal immigration. This proposed co-operation between the EU and African states is nothing new, in 2006 then Justice Commissioner Franco Frattini called for EU Migration Support Teams (MIST) to be established in African countries experiencing high levels of emigration. However, Frattini’s proposal never got off the ground, thus making it doubtful if there will be any similar policies in this area in the future.October’s JHA Council also called for a strengthening of EU’s external borders. A somewhat difficult proposition when one considers that Frontex has a budget of just €85 million, compared to €115 million in 2011. Member States are also unwilling to strengthen their surveillance of their national borders. The new Eurosur system, which aims to tackle cross-border crime, has failed to garner the full support of the Member States and thus it looks like it will become a failure before it even comes into operation.Of course, it should be no surprise that some Member States are reluctant to allow a supranational body like the Commission to control the EU’s immigration and asylum policy – but if Member States do not act now then there will be more Lampedusas in the future.David Moloney is currently a tutor of Comparative European Politics and Issues of European Integration at the University of Limerick. He will be beginning his PhD at the University in January 2014 after having been awarded a scholarship; his PhD will explore the impact of Ireland as a bargaining actor in the Council of Ministers of the European Union during the financial crisis. David is a former employee of the European Parliament.

Gerrard blames officials for Rangers lossGerrard blames officials for Rangers loss

first_imgSteven Gerrard has attributed his side’s 1-0 loss at Celtic in the first Old Firm clash of the season to poor refereeing decisions.Olivier Ntcham’s 62nd-minute strike was all Celtic needed to win the game and maintain their unbeaten run over their Glaswegian rivals to a record 12 games in all competitions.But Gerrard feels his side were on the wrong end of the game’s key moment, with Ryan Jack colliding with Tom Rogic in the build-up to Ntcham’s crucial strike.Mikey Johnston, CelticJohnston is disappointed after being injured Manuel R. Medina – September 11, 2019 Celtic winger Mikey Johnston was disappointed to miss Scotland Under 21 national team’s victories over San Marino and Croatia, and he hopes he can return to play soon.Gerrard said: “It’s definitely a foul. I’ve been around the game a very long time, and that’s a foul in my book. It’s actually a foul in the fourth official’s book as I can hear him going down the mic, ‘Foul, Foul, Foul’.“The referee’s ignored the information and they go and score a goal. I just went in and had a calm chat. I wondered why he hasn’t seen a clear swipe from Rogic on Jack. It’s blatant. For me it’s 100 per cent a foul.“If we’d lost the game with a moment of class or brilliance from Celtic I’d have held my hands up, but the referee’s cost us for sure.”last_img read more

He’s wearing a leather aviator’s helmet, with the goggles pulled up on his forehead.It hints to his future as a U.S. Navy commander and jet fighter pilot. It’s also a reminder that Harley Hall, who was featured in a Jan. 27 story in The Columbian, wasn’t the first aviator in the family.That old-school flying helmet and goggles belonged to the kids’ father, Vernon Hall.“Dad flew mail planes in Nebraska,” Gwen Hall Davis said.That photo is part of a display in tribute to the pilot in the Harley H.

Seventh Ave. The photo is also a tip of the cap, so to speak, to their father.Harley Hall was shot down on the final day of Vietnam War hostilities in 1973, as told in our Jan. 27 story. Before that, he was commander of the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels precision flying team for two years.

Her focus: how cultural values affect our understanding of science. Most recently she’s been looking at the rise of flat Earth theory.Incredibly, more people than ever believe in a flat Earth. Google searches for “flat earth” have grown massively over the past five years and flat Earth conventions have begun popping up all over the globe.That’s where Landrum focused her research.Landrum interviewed 30 people who attended one flat Earth convention and found that all but one became flat Earthers after watching videos on YouTube. Share your voice YouTube She presented her research at an event run by the American Association for the Advancement of Science. While Landrum didn’t explicitly blame YouTube for the rise in flat Earth believers, she does believe that Google could be doing more to stop the spread of scientifically incorrect ideas.”There’s a lot of helpful information on YouTube but also a lot of misinformation,” she said, as reported by The Guardian. “Their algorithms make it easy to end up going down the rabbit hole, by presenting information to people who are going to be more susceptible to it.”Google has acknowledged there’s more it could do to combat the spread of false information on YouTube and, as recently as January, outlined new plans designed to push back.”We’ll begin reducing recommendations of borderline content and content that could misinform users in harmful ways—such as videos promoting a phony miracle cure for a serious illness, claiming the earth is flat, or making blatantly false claims about historic events like 9/11,” the YouTube team said, in a post describing new measures in the process of being implemented. The YouTube team admitted this would be a “gradual change.”Interestingly Landrum called on scientists themselves to fight back by using YouTube as a platform to communicate their own work.”We don’t want YouTube to be full of videos saying here are all these reasons the Earth is flat,” she said. “We need other videos saying here’s why those reasons aren’t real and here’s a bunch of ways you can research it for yourself.” The bizarre tale of the flat-Earth convention that fell apart Flat Earth believers tend to be younger, survey says Flat-Earther shoots homemade rocket, and self, 1,875 feet upcenter_img Tags Sci-Tech Culture 24 Commentslast_img read more

Ask the artist about her muse in the city, and she is quick to retort, ‘Its Tau Devi Lal Biodiversity Park in Sector 52 because it is massive in size and moves the viewer by its beauty.

Younger Loan Applicants Choosing to Remain ConventionalYounger Loan Applicants Choosing to Remain Conventional

first_img The buying habits of millennials—increasingly viewed as crucial in current market conditions—are often described as elusive or hard to pinpoint in today’s “gig economy.” Ellie Mae’s Origination Insight Report provides clarity for those looking to analyze trends in the buying behavior of millennials. This online tool, called Millennial Tracker, shows that 69 percent of all loans in August 2018 taken out by this demographic (defined as those born between the years 1980 and 1999) were conventional loans. That percentage is up 5 points year-over-year, and so far measures higher than it has since 2015. FHA loans for millennials have meanwhile fallen 5 percent, whereas VA loans for millennials haven’t budged from 2 percent overall; 3 percent of all home loans for this age group remain unspecified.Digging deeper into the numbers, it would appear that of these conventional home loans taken out by millennial borrowers, 89 percent in August were for new home purchases—also up 5 percent year-over-year—whereas another 9 percent were taken to refinance (with 1 percent remaining unspecified). This percent for refinancing among millennials is up slightly, just a single percent, and meanwhile days-to-close continues to decrease, with the time interval in August dropping on average to 41: a total single day faster than in July and a total three days faster than in August of last year.Aside from these salient facts, the majority of millennial borrowers are male—nearly outpacing women two-to-one (61 percent to 32 percent; the remainder does not specify gender). FICO scores for millennial borrowers have slowly declined as well, down a single point in the last month (from 723 to 722) and have dropped a total two points since July last year. The average age of all millennials taking out home loans stands at 29.8 percent, up less than half a percent from a year ago. Access the online tool here after registering with Ellie Mae’s website.
