Trump faces hostility on visits to massacre sites

first_imgWashington DC: President Donald Trump is flying Wednesday to the sites of mass shootings in Ohio and Texas, but the divisive Republican risks meeting protests by Americans who blame him for stoking the violence. Trump has been walking a difficult line since the massacres of 31 people over the weekend — 22 at a Walmart frequented by large numbers of Hispanic people in El Paso, Texas, and nine killed by a second gunman in Dayton, Ohio. The visits “will be about honoring victims, comforting communities, and thanking first responders & medical professionals for their heroic actions,” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham tweeted.

Protesters are expected to turn out in both places, even if the president is likely to be shielded from even witnessing dissent. At the first stop, Dayton’s Democratic mayor Nan Whaley bluntly promised to give Trump a piece of her mind, telling him “how unhelpful he’s being.” “The people should stand up and say they are not happy,” she told journalists Tuesday.

He should not come here,” Escobar said Tuesday on MSNBC. Even the city’s Republican mayor offered only a grudging welcome, stressing icily that he would greet Trump in his “official capacity.” – ‘Least racist person’ – Trump has been infuriated by accusations that his administration is deliberately dividing the United States along long-festering racial lines. “I am the least racist person. Black, Hispanic and Asian Unemployment is the lowest (BEST) in the history of the United States!” he tweeted Tuesday. But his campaign speeches and tweets repeatedly invoke the idea that the southern border is under “invasion.” As recently as May, the president laughed and made a quip when a supporter at one of his rallies yelled that they should “shoot” illegal immigrants. Trump has also railed crudely against a string of Democratic opponents of colour. The 21-year-old El Paso killer, who was captured alive, appeared to be closely inspired by similar sentiments. He released a manifesto declaring “this attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas.” The motives of the Dayton murderer, who was 24 and was shot dead by police at the scene of the crime, were less clear. He reportedly had a history of violently misogynistic attitudes. Where Trump and his mostly leftist opponents agree is on the unambiguous designation of the two events as terrorism. Massacres by mostly lone gunmen are all but routine in the United States, where guns are easy to obtain legally and mass killings have taken on a sort of cult status in some extreme circles. Hardline defenders of gun ownership have long resisted portrayal of such tragedies as anything more than random, localized events. But Trump came out Monday in a White House speech condemning “racism, bigotry and white supremacy” as “sinister ideologies.” “We have asked the FBI to identify all further resources they need to investigate and disrupt hate crimes and domestic terrorism,” he said.last_img read more

Package delivery firms get ready to fill gap as Greyhound leaves Western

first_img“Someone else will take it over,” she said, adding demand is low now because depressed natural gas prices have stalled local activity in the sector.The loss of Greyhound’s package service in Western Canada stirred up memories for Calgarian Gary Blaney, 50, who recalled dozens of packages delivered over the years by Greyhound to his far-flung family members.“For as long as I can remember, my family has used Greyhound to send boxes of presents at Christmas time,” he said. “It was the most affordable way and the most reliable way.”He said his family’s flow of packages sent by Greyhound peaked when he was growing up in a small town in Saskatchewan when it was the best way to connect with relatives in Ontario, Alberta and B.C.But that traffic has almost entirely stopped since he moved to Calgary more than a decade ago.“That’s the world we live in. Lots of other ways to send stuff these days.”By Dan HealingTHE CANADIAN PRESS Transport companies like his compete with Greyhound’s lower prices by offering services tailored to customer needs, he said.Steele said his company, started by his parents in 1957, has about 30 drivers who mainly serve the Edmonton-Calgary corridor, but it offers a wider range of delivery points through interline and third-party carriers.David Butler, Greyhound’s regional vice-president for Eastern Canada, said the areas being closed accounted for about 1.15 million of the 1.2 million packages Greyhound delivers each year, adding about two-thirds of the shipments were made under contract by commercial customers.Greyhound’s freight service cost less than most, but its schedule was also usually less convenient as it depended on the passenger bus schedule, Butler said.“It’s a very competitive marketplace and there’s a lot of options for the customers from the package business to look at,” he said.Greyhound said it was ending passenger service after years of adjusting schedules and prices because ridership had fallen by nearly 41 per cent across the country since 2010. Butler said the package service is down 35 per cent in the same period. A spokeswoman for Purolator Canada wouldn’t comment directly on Greyhound’s service, but said the closing won’t affect its business plans.“We don’t expect this news will affect Purolator going forward. In fact, we have been growing and expanding our services and capabilities,” Courtney Reistetter wrote in an email.James Anderson, a spokesman for FedEx Canada, wouldn’t comment on the Greyhound service, but said his firm is well able to handle delivery demand with a total of 38 hubs or facilities throughout Western Canada.Margaret Becker, who operates a “hotshot” delivery business at Fort St. John in northeastern B.C., said the oil and gas sector uses Greyhound as an equipment parts delivery service and to transport workers to towns near their drilling sites.center_img CALGARY, A.B. – Package delivery firms say they are prepared to fill the gap when Greyhound Canada closes most of its Western Canada operations this fall.The company says its Greyhound Package Express service will no longer be available in most parts of B.C., northern Ontario and all of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba after it ends passenger service at the end of October.“It might create some opportunities for us on our small package delivery side of things,” said Dennis Steele, owner of Steele’s Transfer in Calgary.last_img read more

Security Council holds firstever private meeting with troopcontributing nations

The spokesman said it was the first time the Council had held a formal meeting with troop-contributing nations. Until now, Council members met in a more informal setting with Member States contributing military contingents to UN peacekeeping operations.This change comes as a result of Security Council resolution 1353, adopted on 13 June, under which the Council may hold private meetings with troop-contributing countries “to ensure a full and high-level consideration of issues of critical importance to a specific peacekeeping operation.”

Colorchanging renewable sponge material captures and stores carbon dioxide

first_imgCarbon dioxide is a growing problem around the world as more of the greenhouse gas enters our atmosphere and slowly aids in the heating of the planet. It is a widely held belief that we need to cut the amount of carbon dioxide entering our atmosphere, with two options available to doing so: produce less of it, or start removing it from the atmosphere ourselves.Cutting carbon dioxide emissions is something moving up the agenda of governments worldwide, but the rate at which change is happening means even the most drastic of actions may come nowhere close to achieving the desired reductions we need to make. So the alternative is to remove and store it instead, a tactic limited only by the amount of people who decide to do take part.As with all technology, if you can make it simple and cheap enough to use, then there’s a greater chance that everyone will take advantage of it. In the case of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, a breakthrough in the Sir Fraser Stoddart laboratory at the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, Northwestern University, may be about to offer just such a solution.Carbon dioxide can be removed from the atmosphere by using metal-organic frameworks (MOF) that are generally used to store gases. The problem is, until now suitable MOFs have required the use of harmful solvents and toxic heavy metals meaning they add as much as they take away from the problem.Researchers at the Stoddart laboratory have found a renewable, eco-friendly alternative for creating a MOF. Using nothing but natural ingredients, and relying mainly on a sugar molecule called gamma-cyclodextrin, the MOF relies on the sugar molecules being arranged and held together by metals sourced from potassium benzoate and rubidium hydroxide.The end result is a yellow, sponge-like material that leeches carbon dioxide out of the air and stores it. As more carbon dioxide is captured, the foam turns progressively red. When fully red, the foam is saturated and needs replacing. However, if you then place that foam in an environment away from carbon dioxide, it will naturally escape (known as reversible carbon fixation) and the foam returns to its yellow state again ready to be reused.Such a MOF could be employed in many different locations (roof of your home, roof of your car) for carbon dioxide collection. It’s easy to tell when it has been saturated and can be traded for a new one while the green house gas is stored safely.The fact this material could be used by anyone, relies on a material that can be manufactured in an eco-friendlyt way as well as being reusable, and requires no additional fuel or power to capture carbon dioxide, means it has a lot of potential for future deployment. All it needs is the support of governments and companies willing to handle the saturated MOFs and associated ongoing storage of carbon dioxide.Read more at Science Debate and the Journal of the American Chemical Societylast_img read more

This is still a 27-inch pro-grade monitor with an IPS LCD panel that serves up 2560×1440 resolution. The backlight has been updated to a unique type of LED that supports the wide color gamut required by a professional grade display, while offering packaging and power consumption benefits over a CCFL backlight.The four port USB hub has been upgraded to 3.0-spec and now you’ve got the popular Mini DisplayPort input to go along with DVI, HDMI, and full DisplayPort.

Awareness the key to autism

first_imgOld ladies have threatened to smack her children. Drunk teenagers have told them to “shut-up” and security guards have suspected her as a kidnapper of her screaming son.Far from the latter, Maria Ager is the mother of two autistic children and believes that the community need to increase their awareness of the growing condition.“The public think they’re naughty but that’s not right,” she says. “Autistic children look normal but once you get to know them you see that there’s something wrong. That is why they need to know the signs.” Her sons, Chris, 7, and Phillip, 8, are two of 130,000 Australians with autism; a lifelong developmental disability which affects the way a person communicates and relates to other people and the world around them.Signs in children include non verbal or delayed speech, lack of empathy, reduced emotion, poor eye contact, limited development of play activities, lack of socialising, repetitive behaviours and restrictive interests. Ms Ager says she was shocked to learn that she had two autistic children, as there was no history of the condition in her family.“My oldest son burnt himself when he was a baby and went through a lot of hospitalisation so it was hard,” she said.“With my second son Chris, I knew all the symptoms straight away… all the spinning, no socialising, and no eye contact.” Whilst Phillip can read, write, and complete basic tasks by himself, Chris has low functioning autism, which requires constant supervision.He is two years behind in mentality for his age and is not toilet trained.“His behaviour is very hard… if you say no to him he goes ballistic screaming and this can go on for a week because of his fixation on things,” Ms Agar explains.“Phillip is ok but he is very repetitive with language, and doesn’t know when to stop socialising which can get pretty annoying with the kids at school.”Ms Ager says the key to dealing with autism is patience- something that she had to work at in her transition from a busy full-time worker to a stay at home mum.“You have to compromise, use a lot of visual cards, and try not to give in to everything, which will only reward their behaviour,” she says.April 2010 is Autism Month, commencing with World Autism Day on Friday April 2 and ending with Autism hour at 9am on April 30. “Autism awareness is very important in our community- to educate and teach people the struggles of the families,” says Despina Havelas, president Brimbank Autism support network, Autism Angels.“That it is ongoing, but with community support, it absolutely makes a difference to these families.. that they do not have to deal with the frustrations alone.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Wikileaks traque le cyberespionnage

first_imgWikileaks traque le cyber-espionnageLe site WikiLeaks reprend ses révélations et dévoile aujourd’hui des documents mettant au grand jour l’espionnage pratiqué par les industriels sur les citoyens, via leurs mails ou autres traces laissées sur la Toile. Le site WikiLeaks a, par le passé, provoqué bien des remous dans les gouvernements mondiaux. Mais faute de financements, la plateforme de révélations de Julian Assange avait du stopper ses activités au mois d’octobre dernier. Mais le site a réussi à rebondir, preuve en est ces documents publiés concernant cette fois l’espionnage, par des gouvernements, de leurs propres citoyens grâce aux technologies fournies par des industriels spécialisés dans la surveillance, indique le site TF1 News.Julian Assange a présenté, en conférence de presse, les centaines de fichiers interceptés provenant de 160 industriels basés dans 25 pays différents. Ces documents montrent comment sont vendues ses informations recueillies à l’insu des citoyens, lors d’échanges de mails, de conversations privées ou de traces laissés sur la Toile.”Nous publions aujourd’hui plus de 287 dossiers montrant la réalité d’une industrie de surveillance à grande échelle – une industrie qui vend aussi bien ses équipements aux démocraties qu’aux dictatures pour espionner des populations entières”, a déclaré le fondateur de WikiLeaks à Londres.À lire aussiLe World Wide Web a 30 ans : devons-nous nous inquiéter de son évolution ?Parmi ces documents, des manuels destinés aux pouvoirs en place expliquant comment utiliser ces immenses bases de données.

Des experts ayant collaboré avec WikiLeaks dans le cadre de ces fuites ont appelé à une régulation de ces pratiques d’espionnage, par la voix d’Eric King, de l’ONG Privacy International: “Les gouvernements occidentaux ne peuvent rester inactifs quand ce type de technologie est en vente.”Le 2 décembre 2011 à 15:20 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Cowlitz County says coal permit should be approved, with conditions

first_imgLONGVIEW — After years of studying the $680 million Millennium coal project, Cowlitz County is recommending approval of two shoreline permits as long as the company can meets 36 conditions meant to ease its environmental and social impacts.County planning staff submitted a 79-page staff report to a hearings examiner Thursday. The report outlines why the project should be approved under condition that Millennium controls coal dust, compensates for wetland losses and reduces locomotives and vessels emissions, among other requirements.A few hundred people in red and blue shirts descended on the Cowlitz County Expo Center Thursday for the start of a four-day public hearing on the shoreline permits. Pro-Millennium and anti-coal groups hosted competing lunchtime rallies with speeches from government officials, activists and community members.The countyapproved a critical areas permit for the terminal in July, but the shoreline permits are considered a more significant hurdle.In the quasi-judicial hearing, Millennium presented oral arguments defending its project to hearing examiner Mark Scheibmeir. Counter arguments from Columbia Riverkeeper as an intervening party of record followed. Public testimony and cross examination is expected to continue today, Monday and Tuesday.Once the hearing ends next Tuesday, Scheibmeir has 10 business days to decide whether to grant Millennium a conditional use permit and substantial shoreline development permit for the project, which would be built on the old Reynolds Metals site west of Longview.last_img read more

A ‘no’ vote would mean that billions of dollars’ worth of commercial property would be detached from HISD’s tax base.If you live in greater Houston or surrounding areas, you might have some reasons to go to your polling place this Saturday, May 6th.In Harris County, one of the biggest items on the ballot is about the recapture mechanism for the Houston Independent School District (HISD).“The headline act tomorrow is HISD’s Proposition 1. A ‘yes’ vote there allows HISD to send money to the state, like about 200 other school districts do throughout the state,” notes Mark Jones, a political science fellow at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy.A ‘no’ vote would mean that billions of dollars’ worth of commercial property would be detached from HISD’s tax base.Also in the education front, voters are called upon to elect members of Humble ISD’s Board of Trustees.Harris County Clerk Stan Stanart says over half of the county’s 2.2 million registered voters are eligible to vote tomorrow.In Humble and Pasadena residents will be choosing mayors and City Council members, while Fort Bend County, Galveston County and Montgomery County are holding several bond elections.

Add a scrolling minimap to Firefox

first_imgAdd a scrolling minimap to Firefox by Martin Brinkmann on December 08, 2017 in Firefox – 16 commentsMinimap Scroller is a new browser extension for the Firefox web browser that adds a minimap that you can scroll to the web browser.Minimaps are best known from computer games; they are used to provide orientation in games, and also often for navigating to certain locations using the map.The browser extension adds a minimap of the active page as a sidebar to Firefox. This gives users some flexibility when it comes to the functionality, as you may display the sidebar in different locations and hide or show it on demand.Minimap ScrollerThe extension displays a zoomed out copy of the active web page in the sidebar when enabled. It highlights the active part of the page with a rectangular shape that it overlays on the minimap.This shape changes position automatically when you scroll the page using normal means, for instance by using the scrollbar or keyboard shortcuts.You can however use the shape as well to scroll quickly to a specific part on the page. This is usually a lot faster than using traditional means of scrolling, especially on very long pages.The page scrolls automatically when you move the rectangle to a new position on the minimap. The minimap uses the same design as the actual web page which improves orientation significantly.You can identify images and headlines for instance, and depending on the screen, sidebar width and browser resolution, may also be able to read the actual content on the minimap directly. Since the minimap displays more content than what is displayed as the visible part of the page in the browser, this provides you with options to read on directly using the sidebar.The minimap may not display the whole page depending on its length. This means that it too will scroll when you move the rectangle on it. The width of the sidebar in Firefox affects the minimap sidebar. A wider sidebar makes text more readable, but it does reduce the area of the page that is visible without scrolling.Note that you may need to reload a page if you change the width of the sidebar, as the typography is not adjusted automatically when you do.Summary12345 Author Rating3.5 based on 3 votes Software Name Minimap ScrollerSoftware Category BrowserLanding Page https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/minimap-scroller-sidebar/ Advertisementlast_img read more

Boats will be banned from entering the bay in front of the beach, or from dropping anchor at nearby Loh Samah Bay. Travellers can still catch a glimpse of the Bay’s stunning beauty, made famous by Leonardo DiCaprio’s movie ‘The Beach’, at a 400-metre distance, or between the two cliffs that form a natural entrance to the lagoon. But this will be strictly supervised and carefully monitored by the DNP.During the four-month period, the DNP will undertake a coastal and marine environment quality evaluation study on the condition of reef and beach resources, environmental control, and tourism management. This is to properly determine measures for environmental sustainability of Maya Bay during future off-tourist seasons.last_img read more
