Toronto protesters slam Harper telling him theyre Idle No More

first_imgBy Delaney WindigoAPTN National NewsToronto – They met gathered in Toronto and snaked their way through the financial district to Queen’s Park telling the federal government they’re Idle No More.If their voices weren’t loud enough they were armed signs slamming Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his government.They started their march at Toronto’s Sheraton Hotel where the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers were meeting. They then made their way to Queen’s Park.“It’s a result of Harper’s agenda. Harper has created this movement inadvertently by showing his true colours and really trying to oppress people through legislation,” said demonstrator Jody Kechego of Bill C-45 that aims to limit control of First Nation land.A number of youth attended the rally too.One Cree Elder said he’s glad to see young people so engaged.“I feel that the youth are listening. That’s the most important thing is listening about our culture, our heritage and everything and I think a lot of young people are wanting to do it, but a lot of us older ones, we need to get our s**t together and show that example,” said Vern Harper.The rally also fell on the International Day for Human Rights, something that didn’t go unnoticed.“There’s just erosion of human rights and that’s been an ongoing story throughout history, constantly trying to get rid of the Indigenous responsibility,” said Tantoo Cardinal.last_img read more

Saida Charaf Polisario Separatists Have Interrupted My Concerts

Rabat – Southern Moroccan diva Saida Charaf has spoken out about constant provocations by Polisario supporters that she has faced during some of her previous concerts abroad. Speaking at a pre-concert press conference at Villa Des Arts in Rabat, Charaf said that she has faced many provocations from Polisario supporters in Barcelona and Canaries.In a video of the conference, the artist mentioned experience during one of the Royal Air Maroc concerts in Canary Islands, Spain. “While I was singing during the concert, a group belonging to the Polisario Front had been in attendance. One of them raised that sharwita [a piece of cloth] they call it flag […],” she said.“I grabbed it and stepped on it and told them that this is a Moroccan concert.”“The people who have no ‘democracy’ nor ‘dignity’ do not deserve to have their own flag – this is only a ‘sharwita’,” she added. read more

Google to end forced arbitration for all worker disputes

SAN FRANCISCO — Google says it will no longer require that its workers settle disputes with the company through arbitration, responding to months of pressure from employees.The company said Thursday that the change will take effect March 21 and will apply to current and future employees. Google said last year it would end forced arbitration for sexual harassment and assault cases.Mandatory arbitration requires that employees settle their disputes privately and outside of court. The practice lent itself to secrecy and is widespread in U.S. employment contracts.Google workers staged a walk out late last year and continued to press the tech giant to drop forced arbitration.It said it would not require arbitration in its contract worker agreements. But it will not require vendors to change their own contracts.The Associated Press read more

Fonseka refutes Karunas claim Prabhakaran shot himself

Ranil Wijayapala, reporter for Colombo-based Sunday Observer, who was present at the time the body was identified, said that there was only one injury in the body and that was in the head.Karuna Amman had told a Tamil Nadu TV channel that Prabhakaran had committed suicide by shooting himself when capture seemed imminent. He denied that his former leader was captured, tortured and killed by Lankan troops. Asked to comment on Karuna’s claim that Prabhakaran’s wife Mathivathani and daughter Thurka were killed in shelling, Fonseka said that he had no information. He has no clue as to what happened to Prabhakaran’s second son, 12 year old Balachandran either, though some TV channels showed the boy in captivity. “Armies do not identify all bodies after a battle. We were looking for Prabhakaran’s elder son, Charles Anthony, and his body was found and identified,” Fonseka said.Kumaran Pathmanathan, alias KP, formerly the LTTE’s International Wing chief, who was in touch with Prabhakaran over satellite phone from abroad in the last days of the war, said: “It is impossible to say how a person had died in the thick of battle when no witness is alive. All those around Prabhakaran at that time had died in the last ditch battle in the Nandikadal lagoon.” Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka, who commanded the Sri Lanka Army during the 2006-2009 Eelam War IV, has refuted the contention of former LTTE commander “Col” Karuna Amman, that Tiger Supremo Velupillai Prabhakaran had shot himself dead and was not killed by Lankan troops as claimed, the New Indian Express reported.“He had a head injury in which a part of the skull had come off. If he had shot himself, the bullet would have come out from the other side of the head. But this had not happened. He might have been hit by shrapnel from a mortar bomb or a shell,” Fonseka told Express. Asked if a post mortem was done on Prabhakaran’s body, Fonseka said that the police did a post mortem as per law, and a DNA test was also conducted to establish his identity. read more

I think I could.Jean McConvilleMcDonald was also asked about the tonight’s news that a man has been charged in relation to the murder of Jean McConville. She said she welcomed the development, adding:“I welcome any development that offers comfort to the families of the disappeared…”She added:I absolutely condemn the murder of Jean McConville, I absolutely do.Tubridy also asked her if she believed that the Sinn Féin leader had never been a member of the IRA.She answered:I accept thatMcDonald noted that Adams has no conviction for any membership of the IRA and when pressed on whether she believed Adams when he denied it she said: “yes, I believe that.”She was also asked about being a woman in politics in which she said that after she is finished work, she is just a “mam”. She said she believed that women get heckled more in the Dáil.A clip was then played of a Dáil debate in which McDonald is speaking but is being heckled by a male politician. Under her breath she muttered “what a d***”, to which the Late Late audience applauded.Despite Tubridy’s best efforts, McDonald would not name who it was she was referring to.First published 23.45pmRead: ‘I think that’s kind of shocking’: Tense exchanges as Mary Lou questions Rehab chief> Read: ‘Can I suggest you relieve Minister Shatter of his duties?’ Mary Lou McDonald’s advice to Enda Kenny this afternoon>last_img read more

Woman tackles college on the fly

first_imgAlthough turbulence has threatened flight attendant Karin Chandler’s college path, she has stayed on course.Chandler, 44, will graduate from Washington State University Vancouver in May 2015 — 26 years after graduating from high school. “It’s the hardest, most exciting, most rewarding thing I’ve ever done in my entire life,” Chandler said. “Academia isn’t always the answer, but it’s the answer for me.”When Chandler crosses the stage and receives a bachelor of arts degree in human resources, she will be the first person in her extended family to graduate from college. Her dad was an auto mechanic and owned his own shop. Her mom worked in a school cafeteria. But Chandler’s parents have stood behind her decision to go to college.“They’ve been my biggest cheerleaders,” Chandler said.As a high school student in Gig Harbor, Chandler didn’t consider college.“College didn’t appeal to me in the slightest. I didn’t think it was in my realm of opportunities,” she said. “All I wanted to do was work.” Immediately after she graduated high school in 1989, she entered the airline industry. She started at the ticket counter and worked her way up to flight attendant with Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air.By her early 20s, she was married and working full time. When her husband quit work, she supported both of them. She started voicing her desire to go to college.last_img read more

The Mega Rail MD NVS Reddy gives a lecture on Leadership

In explaining how extreme passion, impractical objectives, high expectations, and social pressure can exert tremendous pressure on business leaders and high-profile project managers, he stressed the need to maintain emotional balance and equanimity in addressing adversities in business and life. He said that high-profile managers and ambitious entrepreneurs are alone at the top and are generally reluctant to share their problems with colleagues and family members and this sometimes results in a sudden explosion and suicidal tendencies unless they develop a mechanism. of safety valve to let out steam.

Footage of canceled Crash Team Racing reboot leaked

first_imgWhen Crash Team Racing launched on the PlayStation back in 1999 it was met with critical acclaim and review scores averaging a very respectable 88 according to Metacritic. It was the fourth Crash Bandicoot-branded game, but the first to be a racing game. And as you’d expect, it has since seen a re-release on the PlayStation Network due to how popular it was.What you may not know is that a reboot of the racing title was in development in 2010, which would see a new version of the game released for the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. Proof of that comes in the form of leaked footage that has appeared on YouTube:Where as the original had a total of 15 playable characters and 8 racing on track at once, this new version puts 16 karts on the track and allows for 12 different vehicle modifications split across the tires, bumper, and engine (64 possible combinations). It was basically a much larger version of the original with a graphics overhaul, and would of had to increase its character count significantly.Where as the original CTR game was developed by Naughty Dog, this new version is thought to have been worked on by High Impact Games, who were made up of former Insomniac and Naughty Dog staff. It wasn’t known about publicly, but was being developed alongside a new Crash Bandicoot platformer called Crash Landed, with work carried out by Radical Entertainment.Ultimately both projects had very similar art styles, which suggests they would have been released very close together or possibly even as a dual-pack. So when one got canceled the other inevitably followed, which is a shame.Here’s footage of the original Crash Team Racing on PlayStation for comparison:last_img read more

Where in the World is Mortal Kombat 11

first_img ‘Mortal Kombat 11’ Kharacter Guide: Nightwolf‘Street Fighter V’ and ‘Mortal Kombat 11’ Get Ne… When you spend years and years paying attention to the video game industry, you like to think you can make educated predictions. For example, we were excited, but not totally shocked, to see Simon Belmont make his debut in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. And the name “Starfield” had been kicking around way before Bethesda made it official at this year’s E3. But you can’t get too confident in your predictions because there’s always a chance you’ll be embarrassingly wrong.Case in point, for months now we’ve been expecting to see Mortal Kombat 11, the next fighting game from NetherRealm Studios. It just made sense. Ever since the WB buyout Ed Boon and friends have consistently put out a blockbuster new fighting game every other spring, with the announcements happening in the off years. Injustice II came out over a year ago, so surely MK11 is just around the corner? But so far, nothing.AdChoices广告It’s not like there haven’t been plenty of opportunities to announce whatever violent shenanigans Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and the gang are up to next. Obviously E3 is the prime time to make all of your video game announcements, or the weeks leading up to E3 to own a at least a whole day of the media cycle.However, given the colorful cast of characters and deep lore, San Diego Comic-Con could’ve also been a good place for Mortal Kombat 11 to shine, especially if they want a shorter marketing cycle to maintain higher hype levels until release.And don’t forget, just a few days ago was EVO, the world’s biggest fighting game tournament including NetherRealm games like Mortal Kombat X and Injustice II. Other publishers used the event to announce news like Negan in Tekken and The President of the World in Street Fighter V. But a new Mortal Kombat bombshell would blow those all away. And yet, we heard nothing at any of these events.Maybe the next Mortal Kombat is just further away than we think? The franchise still has a lot to offer fighting games (a spooky M-rated gory MK-esque reboot is the way I think Capcom should resurrect Darkstalkers to separate it from Street Fighter) but maybe the team feels they’re stuck in a rut with the the eleventh core Mortal Kombat game since 1992. The DC superhero rest periods can only distract so much.The ending of MKX also suggested that the follow-up would conclude a kind of trilogy. That has to raise expectations and pressure. We’ve guessed that NetherRealm wants to top themselves in the fighting game single-player story department, an area they utterly dominate, and that would take time. Coming up with creative new carnage in the form of fatalities can’t be easy either.Not to speculate too much, but we also don’t know what’s entirely going on with WB Games. Shadow of War, last year’s sequel to the acclaimed Lord of the Rings orc slavery simulator Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, caught so much flack for the paid loot boxes that they were recently removed. That has to upend entire business models of not just that game but future WB projects. NetherRealm’s previous games experimented with loot boxes, too. We’re similarly oblivious as to what’s going on with other WB game studios like their Montreal branch or Rocksteady Studios (probably working on a Superman game but hopefully working on Batman: Arkham Boat).Two years is a tight turnaround for a video game, especially for the more lavish, feature-rich style of fighting game NetherRealm is now known for. If we have to wait until 2020 for the next Mortal Kombat that’s totally fine. Part of us even hopes that their next game isn’t Mortal Kombat or Injustice but a sequel to 2008’s Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Crossovers are arguably bigger than ever. But whatever the future holds, Ed Boon will just keep trolling us on Twitter, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.For more on fighting games check out our exhaustive history of the genre as well as what Sonic Fox’s EVO victory means for the future of the culture.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

This earthquake occurred in Western Norway some 50 kilometers below the Earth’s surface about 420 million years ago. Credit: Bjørn Jamtveitcenter_img Because of erosion, there are very few ways to identify or measure an earthquake that occurred in the distant past. For that reason, geologists have been looking for better markers. In this new effort, the researchers report on one new marker in Norway that they believe could prove useful for identifying similar early earthquakes in other parts of the world.To learn more about ancient earthquakes, the researchers were studying rocks along a fault line at Bergen Arcs in western Norway. There, they came across garnet formations that looked as if they had been melted and smeared as the edges of two continents slid past one another. They extracted some samples and took them back to their lab for analysis. Peeking at them through a microscope revealed microfractures so small that they did not change the shape of the rock. A closer look showed that melted material had been injected into the fractures leaving behind a network of minerals, among them uranium. The team suggests the micro-fracturing occurred as a result of the earthquake. Next, because uranium decays to lead, the researchers measured the lead content in the material within the fractures, and calculated a date for when the earthquake occurred—approximately 420 million years ago. The researchers also found that they could use the garnet to measure the amount of slippage that occurred between layers of rock. Their calculations indicated the earthquake would have measured 6 to 6.5 on the Richter scale, which means it was relatively strong. They note that humans would not have been around to feel it, but animals at the time likely did.

Fragmentation of wall rock garnets during deep crustal earthquakes, Science Advances (2017). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1602067AbstractFractures and faults riddle the Earth’s crust on all scales, and the deformation associated with them is presumed to have had significant effects on its petrological and structural evolution. However, despite the abundance of directly observable earthquake activity, unequivocal evidence for seismic slip rates along ancient faults is rare and usually related to frictional melting and the formation of pseudotachylites. We report novel microstructures from garnet crystals in the immediate vicinity of seismic slip planes that transected lower crustal granulites during intermediate-depth earthquakes in the Bergen Arcs area, western Norway, some 420 million years ago. Seismic loading caused massive dislocation formations and fragmentation of wall rock garnets. Microfracturing and the injection of sulfide melts occurred during an early stage of loading. Subsequent dilation caused pervasive transport of fluids into the garnets along a network of microfractures, dislocations, and subgrain and grain boundaries, leading to the growth of abundant mineral inclusions inside the fragmented garnets. Recrystallization by grain boundary migration closed most of the pores and fractures generated by the seismic event. This wall rock alteration represents the initial stages of an earthquake-triggered metamorphic transformation process that ultimately led to reworking of the lower crust on a regional scale.

Soon RHEL Red Hat Enterprise Linux wont support KDE

first_imgLater last week, Red Hat announced that RHEL has deprecated KDE (K Desktop Environment) support. KDE Plasma Workspaces (KDE) is an alternative to the default GNOME desktop environment for RHEL. Major future release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux will no longer support using KDE instead of the default GNOME desktop environment. In the 90’s, the Red Hat team was entirely against KDE and had put lots of effort into Gnome. Since Qt was under a not-quite-free license that time, the Red Hat team was firmly behind Gnome. Steve Almy, principal product manager of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, told the Register, “Based on trends in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux customer base, there is overwhelming interest in desktop technologies such as Gnome and Wayland, while interest in KDE has been waning in our installed base.” Red Hat heavily backs the Linux desktop environment GNOME, which is developed as an independent open-source project. Also, it is used by a large bunch of other distros. Although Red Hat is indicating the end of KDE support in RHEL, KDE is very much its own independent project that will continue on its own, with or without support from future RHEL editions. Almy said, “While Red Hat made the deprecation note in the RHEL 7.6 notes, KDE has quite a few years to go in RHEL’s roadmap.” This is simply a warning that certain functionality may be removed or replaced from RHEL in the future with functionality similar or more advanced to the one deprecated. Though KDE, as well as anything listed in Chapter 51 of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.6 release notes,  will continue to be supported for the life of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

first_img Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The Arizona Cardinals cut 10 players Monday after their third preseason game Sunday night.“The first wave is done, and we’re down to the 75 limit,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. “A lot of battles still going on, for these two practices and Thursday night, to determine those last spots as well as practice squad spots.”Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander was among the most notable names on the list. The veteran was released after two seasons with the team. He had 13 tackles last season, seven of which came on special teams. “It’s always hard when you let a vet go, who’s kind of been a cornerstone, a captain for two years,” Arians said. “It’s never easy saying goodbye to those guys.”The other name that may be a surprise to some is Dave Zastudil. The veteran punter who missed most of last season with an injury lost out on a competition with the player who replaced him last season, Drew Butler.“I think he won the battle, easily, on a daily basis,” Arians said of Butler.The 36-year-old Zastudil had been with the Cardinals since 2011, and in 2013 averaged 45.7 yards per kick with 35 punts being downed inside the 20.Last season, Butler averaged 42.1 yards on 79 punts, with five going for touchbacks and 34 being downed inside the 20. People remember his horrific performance in the playoffs, where Butler averaged just 34.8 yards on his nine punts, but Arians is confident the 26-year-old has improved since then.“He had a heck of a year other than the playoff game — the playoff game he struggled getting out of a funk, but he’s hit it really solid the whole time,” Arians said.The other eight players released are former University of Arizona cornerback Shaquille Richardson, linebackers Glenn Carson, Edwin Jackson and Andrae Kirk, guard Nate Isles, tight end Gannon Sinclair, wide receiver Ryan Spadola and cornerback Darren Woodard.
