Caspian Sea States take further steps against oil pollution under UNbacked treaty

15 August 2011The five countries bordering the Caspian Sea are to introduce an emergency response system to tackle oil pollution in the world’s largest enclosed body of water as well as enhanced monitoring measures under new protocols to a United-Nations backed treaty. High-level representatives from Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia and Turkmenistan agreed on the new steps in Aktau, Kazakhstan, last week at a meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Tehran Convention, a legally-binding agreement adopted in the Iranian capital in 2003, for which the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) provides the Secretariat. “The adoption of the Protocol Concerning Regional Preparedness, Response and Cooperation in Combating Oil Pollution Incidents by the five Caspian States marks a historic milestone in their determination to protect and preserve the Caspian Sea environment against the threats posed by oil pollution,” UNEP said in a news release today. “Once ratified by the parties to the Tehran Convention, the Protocol will see the introduction of an emergency response system for dealing with oil pollution incidents.” Over the last two decades, the Caspian has become increasingly exposed to the risk of pollution from oil and gas exploration, exploitation and transport, with the transport of oil or oil products accounting for some 10,000 shipping movements annually. The countries also agreed in principle on the text of a protocol on environmental impact assessment, introducing common rules to assess planned activities likely to cause significant adverse effects on the marine environment. It will also require countries to notify one another of such activities. The isolation of the Caspian basin for over two million years and its climatic and salinity gradients has created a unique ecological system with more than 400 endemic species including 115 species of fish, among them the caviar-bearing Caspian sturgeon and the rare freshwater seal, which are threatened by over-exploitation, habitat destruction and pollution. “Improving knowledge about potential environmental impacts is the very backbone of international environmental cooperation and good inter-State relationships,” UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner said during the Aktau meeting. “Addressing concerns related to potential adverse environmental trans-boundary impacts is the best recipe for preventing such impacts and safeguarding peace and stability.” read more

Blue Jackets refocus after stumbling through roadtrip

Columbus did not have much to be thankful for in its longest road trip of the season.Late-game letdowns were the cause. The Blue Jackets (12-9-4) have lost five games in a row, the longest winless stretch of the 2009-10 campaign. Four of the five losses were during the road trip, and the team continued its fall Saturday against Calgary with a 4-3 shootout loss at home.Before the road trip, the Jackets marked down back-to-back home shootout wins against Anaheim and Edmonton. The team looked re-energized after an embarrassing 9-1 loss against Detroit Nov. 11.But now, Columbus, like a younger brother getting bullied in the backyard playground, looks worn out against the rest of the NHL. It has been hard to watch.This team can win games. Last year, the club never went more than three consecutive games without a win.But this time around has been different. What happened to the Blue Jackets finishing out a hockey game? The club has been ahead in each of the last five games, but failed to hold onto the lead.The Montreal game was a hard one to digest. The Jackets led 3-2 headed into the final period but allowed three unanswered goals as the Canadiens came roaring from behind for the 5-3 win Nov. 24.Coach Ken Hitchcock said after the loss that not managing the game has been the story of the season for the club. He’s right about that.Columbus is third-last in the NHL in goals against, giving up an ugly 86 goals in 25 games with 32 suffered in the third period alone.Saturday night was the worst of the worst.Columbus seemed in control late in the third period with a 3-1 lead, but Calgary scored twice in a 1:19 span to tie it. The Jackets consistently struggle in the third period. They just seem to be outmatched.Sophomore goaltender Steve Mason looked good for most of the night against the Flames. But he gave up three goals on four attempts during the shootout, allowing Calgary constant open spaces between the pipes. He is now 0-4 in shootouts.Maybe he’s moving too fast or seeing the puck too quickly. Whatever it is, the 2009 Rookie of the Year should not panic. He will need to continue to work with the coaching staff to get back where he was last season.These next two games are crucial for one of the youngest clubs in the league. Columbus has back-to-back division games starting tonight against St. Louis at home. The Jackets travel to Chicago Tuesday night to face the Blackhawks, who are on top of the division with 35 points.Standing at 28 points, the club can climb right back to where it was to begin the year in the Central Division with two wins.Losing is contagious. It affects a player’s attitude on the ice, in the locker room and even at home.All it takes is 60 minutes of physical hockey to wipe away the frustration. The losses will be forgotten, the third period woes will vanish, and the Jackets can get back to a winning mindset. read more

Hospital locksmith defrauded NHS out of £600k by hiring his own firm

German foreign minister to visit Turkey for Syria talks embassy

first_imgGERMAN FOREIGN MINISTER Guido Westerwelle will visit Turkey tomorrow for a meeting focussing on the Syrian crisis, an embassy statement said.Westerwelle will meet Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu in Istanbul and “the main theme of the meeting will be the latest developments in the Syrian crisis,” said a German embassy statement released on Friday.The visit comes after Turkey scrambled jets to force a Syrian plane on its way from Moscow to Damascus to land inside Turkey on Wednesday.Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the plane’s cargo contained military equipment and ammunition for the Syrian regime, charges denied by Damascus.Relations between onetime allies Ankara and Damascus have steadily deteriorated since an uprising against the rule of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad first erupted as peaceful protests in March 2011.Tensions between the neighbours reached a new high last week when mortars fired from Syria killed five Turkish nationals inside a Turkish border village and Ankara began firing artillery into Syria in return.German Chancellor Angela Merkel joined other world leaders in calling for restraint after Turkish reprisals.- © AFP, 2012Read: Turkey confiscates ‘suspected arms’ from Syrian plane>Read: Turkish jets force Syrian plane to land over suspicious cargo>last_img read more

How will Ireland 2040 be delivered For starters we need more brickies

first_img 74 Comments https://jrnl.ie/3864589 Feb 24th 2018, 10:31 AM Short URL These latest revelations underline and underscore the Government’s shocking failure to deliver on apprenticeship uptake as part of its Action Plan to Expand Apprenticeships.‘Women woefully represented’Another issue the figures highlight is a lack of gender balance – with women accounting for just 1% of all apprentices in Ireland.“Women are still woefully represented in the apprenticeship sector, and in particular among traditional construction based apprenticeships. Of the total apprentice population of 12,849 at the end of last year, just 151 were female,” said Collins, describing the numbers as “dismal”.A Department of Education and Skills spokesperson told TheJournal.ie that the government is committed to doubling the number of new apprenticeship registrations by 2020 to 9,000 annual new registrations.It has pumped €122 million into apprenticeship training – a 24% increase on 2017.“New apprenticeship registrations have risen from 2,698 in 2014 to 4,843 in 2017, which represents an increase of almost 80%,” said the spokesperson, noting that almost 30% of participants on the new apprenticeships are female.Harris on PTSB home loan sale: ‘It’s time to see a bit of humility from our banks’>Minister concedes homeowners who engaged with PTSB may not have deals honoured> Saturday 24 Feb 2018, 10:30 AM Share93 Tweet Email2 How will Ireland 2040 be delivered? For starters, we need more brickies, tilers and plasterers Ireland 2040 has big plans – but will we have enough construction workers to deliver government pledges.center_img 121 APPRENTICE BRICKLAYERS, 63 people learning how to be plasterers and zero taking on the job of trainee wall tilers – this is the story of Irish trades in 2018.Overall, the total number of apprenticeships – once a bastion of Irish employment – has increased from 10,445 in 2016 to 12,849 in 2017.But it’s a far cry from the peak of about 27,000 during the previous decade’s housing boom.Registrations for bricklaying apprenticeships increased by 34 to 121 in 2017. Plumbing had a bigger boost of 224, bringing the total to 1,272, while painting and decorating apprenticeships stands at 85. This is up from 53 the previous year.The electrical sector seems to be more attractive to prospective workers. Apprenticeships in this area rose from 4,191 to 5,458 in 2017.The construction apprenticeship uptake has risen from 2,273 to 2,873 – but some key trades remain stagnant.The slowdown in the construction sector is one of the unsurprising symptoms of the economic crash. During the downturn, countless tradespeople found themselves without work as sites downed tools.Foreign friends such as Australia and Canada provided some work, but others had no choice but to retrain.With the economy improving, groups like the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland, the Construction Industry Federation and Engineers Ireland have been encouraging people to enter construction courses and to return home from abroad for work.Has it worked? While the sector is showing shoots of growth, some are quick to point out that the pace might not be enough for our growing economy.Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Business, Enterprise and Innovation Niall Collins said current low take-up of apprenticeships in trades like bricklaying, plastering and tiling will create a massive skills shortage.“A lack of apprentices will jeopardise progress in most construction projects and will end the government’s hope of building 25,000 houses a year,” warned Collins.It’s just over a week since Taoiseach Leo Varadkar packed up his Cabinet members to bring them on a rural road trip to Sligo to launch the government’s grand plan for Ireland for the next 20 years.The opposition had a full three-day debate in the Dáil on Ireland 2040 which is set to cost some €116 billion (if it is all achieved).The project makes big promises. New roads, more houses, improved transport links like Metro North and the extension of the Luas line.Those in the construction industry have welcomed these grand schemes, why wouldn’t they?It means more work and more jobs. But they have warned that the pledges must be matched with adequate training if they’re to be kept.The plan makes a commitment to providing “capital supports” for new apprenticeship courses but the scale of the work that needs to be implemented is huge.A skills shortage Fianna Fáil hasn’t been shy in its criticism of the plan during the week – and the issue of the lack of trained workers to carry out the works is something they have latched on to.“[An] abysmal support of the apprenticeship sector,” is how Niall Collins described the government’s work in the area.According to Collins, figures released to him in a parliamentary question from the Minister of State for Skill and Training John Halligan show that both traditional and modern apprenticeship numbers aren’t where they need to be.He said the government is also falling short of its own target for apprenticeship registrations for new programmes.Rise in overall apprenticeships The hospitality, insurance, accounting and financial services sectors have been supported through what are known as consortia-led apprenticeships. These are industry-led programmes developed by business and education partners.Two further programmes in ICT, network engineer and software developer are also due to see their first intake of apprentices in the coming months.Despite the heralding of 800 such traineeships, only 335 have begun.“This is a disgraceful 42% success rate,” said Collins By Christina Finn 14,401 Views Image: Shutterstock/bernatets photo Image: Shutterstock/bernatets photo Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Ichiro announces retirement Mariners beat As in 12 innings

first_imgTOKYO — At times, it seemed as if he’d go on hitting forever.But on Thursday night, a player who defined baseball at its very best on two continents for a generation, took his final swing.The great Ichiro has said “sayonara.”Now 45, Ichiro Suzuki left the Tokyo Dome field in the eighth inning, waving goodbye to the packed crowd amid hugs from Seattle Mariners teammates in a three-minute walk that signaled to all his monumental run was over.“I have ended my career and decided to retire,” Ichiro said, speaking in Japanese at a news conference after a 5-4 win over Oakland in 12 innings.He said his contract was through the two games in Japan, and said he decided before arriving last week to step away.“After the reception I got today, how could I possibly have any regrets?” he said. “I couldn’t play well enough in spring training to earn an extension.”Ichiro went 0 for 4 in his farewell. In his last at-bat, he came up with two outs, a runner on second and a tie score in the eighth. He hit a slow grounder to shortstop and, still hustling the whole way, was barely thrown out at first.He took his spot in right field in the eighth, then was pulled by manager Scott Servais and the walk into history began in front of a sellout of 45,000. He strolled in, turned and waved to the crowd with all of the usually reserved Japanese fans on their feet.last_img read more

Service Secretaries Talk Budget

It’s that simple. We cannot continue to live off vehicles and equipment that came into the Army when I came into the Army, in the 1980s. So it is that urgent that we get this done and that we implement that budget.Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson: We are using the authorities given to us to buy things faster and smarter, and we’re building the Air Force we need for the high-end fight.Navy Secretary Richard Spencer: The foundation for readiness has been set…. Right now in the United States Navy… everyone understands they have the resources. This is all being done now to the – to the mantra of urgency. We have money. We have plans.

Buy This Comic MANEATERS 1

first_img Buy This Comic: DEATH ORB #1Buy This Comic: CRIMINY Stay on target “A mutation in Toxoplasmosis causes menstruating women to turn into ferocious killer wildcats—easily provoked and extremely dangerous. As panic spreads and paranoia takes root, the fate of the world rides on the shoulders of one twelve-year-old girl. Part Cat People, part The Handmaid’s Tale, MAN-EATERS will have everyone talking.”MAN-EATERS #1(W): Chelsea Cain (A): Kate Niemczyk (C): Rachelle Rosenberg (L): Joe CaramagnaJust like the description indicates, Man-Eaters will definitely get everyone talking. And trust me, I haven’t stopped yet. Last week, I gave my friend the description of this comic. She said, “No way is that an actual comic.” Ah, little does she know, low and behold, Chelsea Cain made it happen. Man-Eaters is a clever take on that time of the month and how it effects. However, it’s also very scarily accurate to today’s political climate that sees teenage girls, or girls in general, as something to indeed fear.via Image ComicsChelsea Cain continues to be unapologetic when it comes to her writing. Cain has taken on the best of them and come out swinging because she’s just that damn good. Cain tells the stories of women in a way that we haven’t seen before. In Man-Eaters, she matches that strong feminism with biting wit. She creates an alternative yet haunting future where teenage girls who aren’t given a choice in the future that they’ve been given. It’s such an outstanding debut of a comic that hits on all the right notes that would scare men, women and all people alike.The inspiration she draws on within this comic is something that honestly fascinates me. I wanted to dive a little deeper into it. Please indulge me just this bit. “Part Cat People, part The Handmaid’s Tale” could not be further from each other, but together it makes so much sense of how Cain does this first issue so wonderfully.Cat People is a movie where a woman has to suppress her sexual urges and keep in line. She is very much afraid that if she expressed them, she would turn into a big ol’ cat. Handmaiden’s Tale is the dystopian future where a woman is stripped of their rights altogether. However, in a world where handmaidens are meant to bring children into this world, it’s a bit of a no-no to have your period. Taking the ‘they turn into a cat’ with ‘after they get their periods’ is brilliance. I am in utter awe. Bringing these two inspirations together to create Man-Eaters is something of a glorious mesh of storytelling that only Cain can come up with. This along with a protagonist that is about to go through the most important and toughest time of her life.via Image ComicsSpeaking of the young protagonist, one thing that very much sticks with you in Cain’s writing is how much she’s telling the experience through a twelve-year-old. She’s smart and observant of the world going on around her, especially with her dad being a police officer. You immediately identify with her. As she narrates the story, you feel uneasy about the world she’s a part of. The politics, agenda, and freedom of the people all combine in a harrowing sense of fear for anyone of “her kind.”The ending of this comic almost floored me. Our protagonist gets the one thing that might be harmful to her and will change her life forever. Her period. Cain writes something so relatable, but funny and eerie, but hypnotizing. She masters all of this in just one issue. It will leave you scratching your head with how much more she’s going to bring you in the future. (Put her back on Vision, you cowards.)Kate Niemczyk is such a superb artist that you’d be an absolute fool to ignore everything she can do. She continues to bring such high visuals to Cain’s comics. They’re one of my favorite comic marriages of artist and writer. This must have Rachelle Rosenberg in this marriage with her colors as well. Niemczyk’s art brings more of the narrative to the forefront, sneaking in small details within to give you such a feel for this world. She gives way to some stunning panels that you can’t help but look inside and see every little piece that’s there.via Image ComicsFor example, there’s a two-pager that’s one panel, and she gives that entire thing such a personality. It’s just a set of apartment buildings on top of shops. However, you feel like you have a sense of your everyday hometown. You even feel this with our protagonist. She gives her a design that we all can relate to and yet has everyday little random things within her space. Niemczyk’s art brings that out in Man-Eaters, you’re left feeling like this place could be anywhere or anytime. Even the additional interior arts by Stella Greenvoss melts into this world of wonder. They sit you down in this world, straps you in and let you piece together the journey that you’re about to head into.I LIVE for Rachelle Rosenberg’s colors in this issue. She creates so many different types of moods with her colors that you’re left amazed by how she does it. She brings natural colors in that supply the feeling of the “hometown” effect of Niemczyk’s art. But then, it sometimes shifts. You venture into the dark and gritty panels when the cats attack. Or, the sobering sunset colors of the girls in line and chained. It’s such a duel mood with her colors in this book that it leaves you with a knot. Niemczyk’s art goes hand in hand with Rosenberg’s dynamic colors. It captures and creates the overall feeling of being unsafe in this world and not knowing what’s going to happen next.via Image ComicsJoe Caramagna letters in a way that doesn’t let you miss a bit of the action in this comic. He also letters in a way that makes the dialogue funnier. I know that’s a bit weird to say. Caramagna knows how to place in a way that lets everything land properly. He allows your eyes to scan from panel to panel, but space his balloon placements enough or close enough to let them be just so funny. There’s a couple of panels at the beginning where I couldn’t help but giggle. This was because of Cain’s script, but the flow came from the placement of Caramagna’s letters.Man-Eaters #1 is a triumph from a team that brings their own undeniable storytelling that is meant to be seen and heard. It fills all the criteria you want in a comic: feminism, revenge, cats, cool t-shirts you definitely will want to make, and more. Man-Eaters #1 is now available on Comixology and your local comic shop.9/26/2018 Releases – In addition to MAN-EATERS #1, here’s a list of other new titles that came out this week that you should be reading.Beasts of Burden: Wise Dogs and Eldritch Men #2 by Evan Dorkin (W), Benjamin Dewey (A) Dark Horse ComicsDream Daddy #2 by Lee C.A (W), Jack Gross (A) Oni PressCold Spots #2 by Cullen Bunn (W), Mark Torres (A) Image ComicsCyber Force Vol. 1: Awakening by Matt Hawkins, Bryan Edward Hill (W), Atilio Rojo (A), Marc Silvestri (CA) Top Cow ProductionsWasted Space Vol. 1 by Michael Moreci (W), Hayden Sherman (A) Vault ComicsInfidel by Pornsak Piechetshote (W) Aaron Campbell (A) Jose Villarrubia (C) Jeff Powell (L) Image ComicsWitchblade #8 by Caitlin Kittredge (W), Roberta Ingranata (A) Top Cow ProductionsGoosebumps: Download and Die by Jen Vaughn (W) Michelle Wong (A) IDW PublishingFriendo #1 by Alex Paknadel (W) Martin Simmonds (A) Vault ComicsWant to support great indie creators, we’ve got 5 Kickstarter campaigns to kick money to.

Xbox 180 Microsoft to drop Xbox One internet requirement and used game

first_imgUpdate – 4.42pm: This story is moving very quickly and there are more guesses and reporting of the initial rumors than anything else, but it does seem that Microsoft is updating the Xbox One’s FAQ page. The company specifically mentioned that the updates — which are not available yet — are “a result of feedback from the Xbox community.” It’s looking like the update will live here, once it goes live.Update – 4:51PM: http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/update. It’s confirmed. The Xbox One will have no always-on/check-in requirements and it will work with disc-based games exactly as the Xbox 360 does. That means gamers will be able to buy, sell, and trade games with no new policies to negotiate.A rumor is circulating that Microsoft has decided to reverse its decision to both require an Internet connection to use the Xbox One and restrict game sharing and trading.We can’t stress enough that this is just a rumor, but one coming from respected games website GiantBomb.If true, it would mean that the Xbox One would become just like the PS4 and current-gen machines. You would need the game disc in the drive in order to play a game, but no Internet connection would (ever) be required outside of Xbox Live access. You could also share your game discs with friends, or trade them at retailers without that retailer needing to sign up for Microsoft’s used games transfer system.Such a move would obviously be a major embarrassment for Microsoft. Making this huge change so soon after E3 would surprise just about everyone. The company’s executives and public relations department have been reinforcing and defending the decision as to why an always connected machine is such a good, and future-proof move ever since.All that would just stop and a new line would have to be taken, probably defending the decision to change course. It would also play into the hands of Sony who would have a field day with their PS4 marketing.And then there’s the kicker. Even if Microsoft did reverse course and remove the restrictions, they’d still be left with a console that’s $100 more expensive than the PS4 and $150 more than the Wii U.last_img read more

Get setNH7

first_imgAccording to you how has music in India changed over the years?There are some truly inspiring artists coming up now. I love hearing the kind of attitude that young artists tend to have. Yet there is sometimes a lack of knowledge as per how the scene got this way in the first place and the people that made it happen. For the most part, I am excited at the state of indie music in India.Could you tell us more about Karsh Kale Collective? Well, the band kind of came together when I came to India to promote my album Cinema.  I had played with some of the musicians before and had to put a band together for a series of shows supporting the album’s release. Things worked out so well that the same band went on to do an episode of Coke Studio and the rest is history. For me, it is the dream band I have always been striving to put together. I get to explore rock, electronica, classical and film music and so much more, all at the same time with this band. I also see myself improving as a musician collaborating with such a great and creative group of artists.  The band consists of Warren Mendonsa, Ajay Prasanna, Jai Row Kavi, Jayant Luthra, Benny Dayal, Shilpa Rao and Karsh Kale. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’At NH7 Weekender in Delhi, who all will you be performing with from NH7 All Stars? What are your expectations from the Delhi leg?Bacardi NH7 Weekender is an amazing festival, and a place where indie music comes together, and I love playing at the festival each year. The Karsh Kale Collective + NH7 All Stars, which is the finale set for the festival, is a celebration of all the music that’s played at the festival, and the music that we’ve grown up on.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixHas your sense of music changed with time? Any new favourites or preferences recently?I like different aspects of different artists and take inspiration from all angles. Today in India there is a wellspring of new and fresh takes on music, like Shaa’ir + Func, Dualist Inquiry, Nucleya, Advaita, and of course, the veteran rockers that have been keeping it alive for years, like Pentagram, Ankur Tewari, Midival Punditz, Blackstratblues, etc. Tell us about your most memorable performance or gig. So many to name. I’d have to say generally the Bacardi NH7 Weekender experience tends to take the cake as it seems to be a culmination of a lot of energy, and we are all surrounded by friends and fellow artists, so there is always an added excitement. We’re performing the finale concert along with some special guests for all four festivals this year, across Pune, Bangalore, Delhi and Kolkata.What next for Karsh Kale?I plan to do more in terms of writing and recording with the Collective, not to mention more concerts. I am also working on an album of my own vocal songs, which is a first for me. I’ll be collaborating with Salim Merchant, Gaurav Raina from the Midival Punditz, Nitin Sawhney and Warren Mendonsa on songs for this project.  I have wanted to do a vocal record for a long time, but now I feel my voice is ready. There are a few film projects on the cards as well, that are more interesting and left field.  NUCLEYAWhy the name Nucleya? How does it describe you?Nucleya was my e-mail password when I was in school. I was looking for a name, and this was what occurred to me.Tell us a little bit about your own musical journey.My parents are avid music listeners. We had music in the house all the time. My father likes Indian film music from the 50s and 60s, my mum is very fond of Ghazals, and brother prefers electronic music, so I was exposed to many different genres at once. When I was in school, my father bought me my first ever computer, and on that I started making electronic music. With a few like-minded friends, I formed my first band Bandish Projekt. Being part of a band, I was making one particular style of music for about 10 years. I wanted to explore and experiment. About five years ago, I started Nucleya, and with this moniker I started exploring and came across dubstep and instantly fell in love with it. I have major dubstep influences in my music and I chose this genre because it has strong bass throughout, and simple half time drums. What is your opinion about the future of EDM in India? When you started it was at a nascent stage, how has it changed according to you?The electronic music scene has changed drastically. Back in the day, there were no venues for electronic music and now we have festivals. But it’s not just that – all the best electronic musicians from around the world headline our festivals, play at clubs in India and support our artists too, so that’s awesome!What were your thoughts behind developing your new album Koocha Monster?My new EP, Koocha Monster, celebrates Indian street music in a slightly more bass heavy format. In Hindi, streets are called gali koocha, so the word koocha comes from there, and the word ‘monster’ comes from the sound of the bass. As far as the sound of the EP is concerned, the EP is a hybrid of many genres. I wanted to explore Indian street music and various sub genres of bass heavy music like Moombahton, trap, dubstep and reggae. I love sampling dialogues, news, so that’s there as well.What can we expect from your set at NH7 Weekender in Delhi?I plan to play a very special visual set this time, where the visuals are all mashed up and resynced to the beat live, which will be very interesting. I also plan to play some unreleased music.You have performed at several international and national festivals. What are the main differences you see amongst the audiences there and back home?Each venue is a different experience regardless of whether it’s in India or international. The response I get in Pune is so different as compared to the response I get in, say, Delhi. The same thing is applicable to all international gigs I have played so far. In some places the energy is very high, and in some places not so much. I have played some gigs where people preferred to just stand and listen to what I’m playing rather than dancing, which is amazing too.last_img read more

Science behind chocolatemaking decoded

first_imgLondon: Scientists have decoded the physics behind a key chocolate-making process that gives the confectionary its distinctive smooth texture. The team from University of Edinburgh in the UK studied mixtures resembling liquid chocolate created using the conching process, which was developed by Swiss confectioner Rodolphe Lindt in 1879. Conching is a mixing process that evenly distributes cocoa butter within chocolate and may act as a “polisher” of the particles. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfIt promotes flavour development through frictional heat, release of volatiles and acids, and oxidation. The findings, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, may hold the key to producing chocolate with lower fat content, and could help make chocolate manufacturing more energy efficient. The analysis, which involved measuring the density of mixtures and how they flow at various stages of the process, suggests conching may alter the physical properties of the microscopic sugar crystals and other granular ingredients of chocolate. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”We hope our work can help reduce the amount of energy used in the conching process and lead to greener manufacturing of the world’s most popular confectionary product,” said Wilson Poon, a professor at the University of Edinburgh, who led the study. “By studying chocolate making, we have been able to gain new insights into the fundamental physics of how complex mixtures flow. This is a great example of how physics can build bridges between disciplines and sectors,” Poon said in a statement. Until now, the science behind the process was poorly understood, researchers said. The research shows that conching – which involves mixing ingredients for several hours – produces smooth molten chocolate by breaking down lumps of ingredients into finer grains and reducing friction between particles. Before the invention of conching, chocolate had a gritty texture. This is because the ingredients form rough, irregular clumps that do not flow smoothly when mixed with cocoa butter using other methods, the team said. Their insights could also help improve processes used in other sectors – such as ceramics manufacturing and cement production – that rely on the mixing of powders and liquids.last_img read more

Obama to discuss drug war trade in Central America

first_imgNo related posts. U.S. President Barack Obama arrived in Costa Rica on Friday for a Central American summit focused on trade and the drug war after a stop in Mexico highlighting economic and security ties.The seven leaders of Central America, plus the Dominican Republic, are expected to press Obama to step up U.S. assistance against ultra-violent drug cartels that use the region as a stopover for US-bound cocaine.The Costa Rican capital was under tight security for the summit, with a heavy police presence, streets closed to pedestrians and cars, and shops and schools shuttered.Before landing in San José, Obama addressed a young audience in Mexico City’s Museum of Anthropology, pledging to forge an equal partnership with his nation’s southern neighbor and put “old mindsets aside.”“A new Mexico is emerging,” Obama said after greeting the crowd with a few words in Spanish – “Mexico lindo y querido” (“beautiful and beloved Mexico”).Turning to a US domestic issue dear to Mexicans, Obama said he was “absolutely convinced” the U.S. Congress would pass immigration reform to bring 11 million undocumented workers – a majority of them Mexicans – out of the shadows.With more than 70,000 people dead so far in a still-raging battle between drug cartels, the US leader acknowledged that “much of the root cause of violence” in Mexico owed to U.S. demand for illegal drugs.“We also recognize that most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States,” Obama said, vowing to do everything in his power to pass gun control reform back home.The flow of guns into the hands of drug cartels has been a constant irritant in Mexico, which has linked the rise in violence to the expiration of the U.S. ban on assault rifles in 2004.On Thursday, Obama met with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who took office in December, and the two leaders sought to shift the focus of their relations back to their $500 billion trade ties.But they also discussed their security bond, with Obama backing Peña Nieto’s new strategy, which is focused on reducing the wave of murders, kidnappings and extortion plaguing Mexico.In his speech on Friday, Obama said relations with Mexico must be defined by the prosperity they can generate together, not the threats they face.“Despite all the bonds and the values that we share, despite all the people who claim heritage on both sides, our attitudes sometimes are trapped in old stereotypes,” Obama said.“We are two equal partners, two sovereign nations. We must work together in mutual interest, in mutual respect, and if we do that, both Mexico and the United States will prosper.”Obama will address much of the same issues during his talks in San Jose, including close cooperation in combating drug smuggling at sea.Obama’s spokesman, Jay Carney, told reporters that the US leader “will also be discussing economic and other areas. So security continues to be a pressing problem, but there are other topics on the agenda as well.”The United States has provided $500 million in security aid to Central America since 2008, but the murder rate has soared to 40 homicides per 100,000 inhabitants in the region, five times the world average.The U.S. military has sent ships to the Pacific and Caribbean to intercept drugs, deployed 200 Marines in Guatemala and shared radar intelligence with Honduras. But top U.S. generals warned that budget cuts could hamper the mission.“We need resolute support from the U.S. government to attack our common drug enemy, drug trafficking, since regrettably Honduras and other countries of the region see the dead in a war we didn’t start,” said Honduran President Porfirio Lobo.

Shehu Sani has stated that the Boko Haram sect will not disclose its source of funding and sponsorship to the Australian hostage negotiator Dr Stephen Davis DailyPost recalls that Davis had in an interview with newsmen claimed that some prominent politicians military officers and government officials were financing the Boko Haram activities Reacting to the Australian’s allegation on his facebook wall on Monday Sani said it was impossible for genuine Boko Haram members to disclose to any negotiator the sect’s source of funding Sani who dismissed the allegation said “I have been asked by many people to confirm whether the statement credited to the Australian negotiator about the involvement of some people in the Boko Haram insurgency is true or false “The truth and the little I know is that it is very impossible for genuine Boko Haram top rank members to disclose to any negotiator their source of funding “Any negotiator who deviates from his acclaimed role of a broker and tried to seek information about their source of funding will likely be treated as a spy “How logical is it for the group to be sponsored by persons they consistently despised and targeted “The government has denied any link with the mediator and I believe the group will make their statement on the issue” Sani stated The governor of Ekiti State Mr Peter Ayodele Fayose has defended his support for President Goodluck Jonathan in the March 28 presidential election adding that he remains unequivocally loyal to the president Fayose in a statement personally signed by him said he has become the demolition target of the national leadership of the All Progressives congress APC because he denied the party the chance of winning the state in the 2015 general elections The statement reads: “It has become imperative once again to address the media on the constitutional and political crises being foisted on our dear State Ekiti by irritants of unbridled ambitions who are not only devoid of spirit of sportsmanship but implacable even when all odds are against them and roundly rejected by the good people of the state “It is no longer news that I defeated an incumbent governor in all the 16 Local Government Areas in the State and that for the first time in the history of Nigeria attempts were made to use the courts to prevent someone who clearly won a governorship election from assuming office “Since June 21 2014 that the All Progressives Congress (APC) suffered that humiliating defeat the party has suffered defeats in the entire local government areas in Ekiti State in four other elections the latest being the House of Assembly election in which APC won no single seat out of the 26 seats “Ekiti people have been persistent in their preference for me and my party the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to correct the ills of the last four years and set the State on the path of greatness “Despite that Ekiti people have consistently spoken with their votes against the APC Nigerians are witnesses to the litany of illegalities being woven by both the national leadership of the party and its Ekiti State chapter all in an attempt to rob Ekiti people of the mandate freely given to me “Despite receiving bloodied nose in both the political and judicial arena in the hands of the Ekiti masses as represented by me these desperate politicians are unrelenting in their shenanigans the latest being the information at my disposal that even after May 29 the state would not know peace “I however trust Ekiti people to do what is right in securing peace in their land “I have been severally informed that I became the prime demolition target of the APC national leadership because of my overt and unalloyed support for President Goodluck Jonathan during the campaigns “Insiders in their party also told me that APC leaders were also yet to get over the fact that in the entire South-West Ekiti was the only state they could not “rob” for General Mohammed Buhari (rtd) The eagle-eyed surveillance of Ekiti people ensured that “I wish to declare unequivocally that I remain loyal to President Jonathan even after May 29 as my support for his re-election and administration was not about bread-and-butter I was convinced he was moving Nigeria in the right direction despite all the noise I have no regrets supporting him If same situation presents itself again I would do it all over “Let me state It clearly that if President Jonathan is deserted by all Nigerians today I Ayodele Fayose would remain with him I have chosen to be his last-man standing “If for this show of loyalty to Mr President and my party APC and its leaders believe that the best way to pay me back is to make Ekiti ungovernable the decision on appropriate reaction belongs to the people whose mandate I keep in trust “It is ironic that those who said worse things about the President-elect General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) when they were in opposing parties are the ones milling around him today using him as an electoral talisman and demonizing us for saying things of lesser magnitude during a campaign that was mainly characterized by hate-messages from both divides “I also want to put on record that if all PDP members decamp to APC today I will remain the last-man standing for the party even a I have no cause to denigrate the office of the president “I also promise APC a robust and engaging opposition both in the South-West and nationally with me playing a prominent role “Let me again state that I will continue to seek peace with my traducers and troublers of Ekiti Since the Supreme Court judgement which held my 2006 impeachment as illegal unconstitutional null and void and of no effect my preachings have been peace This is to see if a hand of fellowship as urged by elders in the state and the nation at large would bring sanity to the opposition camp It definitely has nothing to do with cowardice; as Ekiti is a land of the brave “In alerting the international community on what to expect from May 29 as regards the threat by the APC to make Ekiti ungovernable I have decided to put on notice the United Nations (UN) and the African Union (AU) on the imminent reign of impunity by APC as from May 29 “Since Ekiti people are certain to resist the planned plundering of their land Nigerians and the world at large should know who to hold responsible
