House passes farm bill sending it to Trumps desk

first_imgWASHINGTON — The House has easily passed the farm bill, a massive legislative package that reauthorizes agriculture programs and food aid.The legislation has already passed the Senate and is now headed to President Donald Trump, who is expected to sign it.The measure is the result of months of negotiations by lawmakers. It does not make any significant changes to the food stamp program that serves nearly 40 million low-income Americans. Trump and conservatives had pushed to create new work requirements for food stamps, but the Senate rejected the idea.The bill reauthorizes agriculture and conservation programs, funds trade programs, expands support for struggling dairy farmers and legalizes the cultivation of industrial hemp. The House vote was 369-47.Juliet Linderman, The Associated Presslast_img read more

ChinaIndia border tensions persist but they prevent escalation Pentagon

first_imgWashington: Border tensions between China and India persist but the two countries have thus far prevented these disagreements from escalating to a level similar to the 73-day long Doklam standoff, the Pentagon has told the US Congress in a report. In its annual report to the Congress, the Pentagon said that as part of its “active defence” strategy, China’s leaders use tactics short of armed conflict to pursue China’s strategic objectives. Activities are calculated to fall below the threshold of provoking armed conflict with the United States, its allies and partners, or others in the Indo-Pacific region.

China is engaged in hotly contested territorial disputes in both the South China Sea and the East China Sea. Although Beijing claims almost all of the South China Sea, Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan have counter claims.

Located within the WTC are two group armies, three Air Force bases, one Rocket Force base that conduct internal security operations. On the India-China border, the Pentagon said despite a summer 2018 low-level standoff in Demchok, China and India have thus far prevented these disagreements from escalating to a level similar to the border standoff at the Doklam Plateau in 2017. “Tensions between China and India persist along the western and eastern sections of their disputed border. Chinese and Indian patrols regularly encounter one another along the disputed border, and both sides often accuse one another of border incursions,” it said. Chinese and Indian forces engage in regular border meetings to discuss disputes and are generally able to resolve misunderstandings to prevent the escalation of minor confrontations. However, an enduring settlement of the 2017 border dispute remains elusive, the Pentagon told the Congress. Chinese and Indian military and civilian leaders continue discussions on the development of mechanisms to defuse tensions at both the immediate border areas as well as the national level, through military exchanges and a proposed direct crisis hotline, it said. In April 2018, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Narendra Modi held an informal meeting in Wuhan and expressed support for a resolution on the border, the report informed the Congress. In November 2018, India and China resumed their annual defence dialogue which was followed by a special representative meeting on the border co-chaired by Indian National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and Chinese State Councilor Wang Yi, it said. The Pentagon also told the Congress that tensions remain with India along the shared border over Arunachal Pradesh, which China asserts is part of Tibet and therefore part of China, and over the Aksai Chin region at the western end of the Tibetan Plateau. “Chinese and Indian patrols regularly encounter one another along the disputed border, and both sides often accuse one another of border incursions,” it added.last_img read more

Lawsuit seeks restitution from former Olympian who went missing for 18 months

VICTORIA – An investment dealer and former Olympic rower who disappeared for nearly 18 months faces a civil lawsuit from investors alleging he ran a pyramid scheme with their money.A notice of civil claim was filed in Duncan, B.C., on July 7, 2016, on behalf of six people who say they were Harold Backer’s clients. It names Backer, his former employer Investia Services Financiers Inc., and a private investment firm operated by Backer, My Financial Backer Corp., as defendants.The suit filed in B.C. Supreme Court claims damages for breach of contract, negligence and fraud “arising from an unauthorized, fraudulent, pyramid or ‘Ponzi’ scheme operated by the defendants, Backer and MFB (My Financial Backer Corp.) with funds received from the plaintiffs.”The suit claims damages for negligence against Investia, which employed Backer since 2005 but terminated his employment after his disappearance.Backer, 54, told his family on Nov. 3, 2015, he was going for a bike ride but never came back, police have said.Backer appeared at Victoria Police Department headquarters on April 14. He was charged with two counts of fraud over $5,000.The three-time Olympian appeared in court on Tuesday and was remanded until May 2.None of the allegations in the civil or criminal cases have been proven in court.The civil suit names Anthony Carr, Mary Carr, Leslie Carr and Brian Carr as the plaintiffs, as well Mary Carr, the executrix of the estate of Anna Peach, who is deceased.The suit does not include a damage amount, but seeks restitution and interest “for all funds delivered by the plaintiffs to Backer and MFB.”Backer has yet to file a response to the civil suit and the lawyer who represented him in court on Tuesday could not be reached for comment.Investia filed a response last September, denying claims of negligence.“At all times, Investia properly supervised the activities of Backer,” says the court document. “Backer concealed his activities with respect to MFB from Investia. As a result, Investia denies that it is liable to the client plaintiffs in negligence.”The Vancouver legal firm representing Investia could not be immediately reached for comment.Investia spokesman Pierre Picard said in a statement in November 2015 that Backer was required to disclose all outside business activities. At the time, he said Investia launched an investigation after some of Backer’s clients say they received a letter about their money days following his disappearance.The civil claim includes quotations from an alleged letter that the plaintiffs assert in the court document was written by Backer and that they received after he went missing.The court document quotes the letter as saying Backer allegedly told his clients that market-based funds he managed had lost between 25 per cent and 45 per cent of their market value in “the” crash and the investors were allegedly not told of the loss, which is referred to as “my personal debt.”“My investors have been my friends and I have done a terrible thing to my friends,” says the statement of claim, quoting from the alleged letter. “I am eternally sorry for my financial decisions.”The statement of claim alleges that the letter refers to a life insurance policy worth $1.5 million and “this amount should be divided among my investors in a pro-rated fashion.”The statement of claim also quotes the alleged letter as saying Investia was not connected to any losses.“Investments through Investia Financial Services are not connected to this in any way. If you have invested through me through Investia in any mutual fund company, your RRSP/RIF/RESP money is absolutely safe.”In its statement of defence, Investia says Backer was required to comply with the rules, policy and bylaws of the Mutual Fund Dealers Association.The company also says Anthony, Mary, Leslie and Brian Carr held various accounts with Investia starting in October 2005. It says Leslie and Brian Carr transferred out of Investia in February 2016, while Tony and Mary Carr were still with Investia.The statement of defence says Anna Peach was never a client of Investia and never had accounts with Investia.“The investments in MFB were a private arrangement between Backer and the plaintiffs,” the court document says. “Backer advised Investia that MFB was a personal corporation, and subsequently that MFB was the entity through which he offered tax preparation services.”Note to readers: This is a corrected story.

Timely and decisive response vital to uphold responsibility to protect – UN

“This is the ultimate test of the responsibility to protect,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in his remarks to an informal interactive dialogue of the General Assembly on the principle agreed at a summit of world leaders in 2005. Sometimes known as ‘R2P,’ the principle of the responsibility to protect holds States responsible for shielding their own populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and related crimes against humanity and requires the international community to step in if this obligation is not met. Presenting his latest report on the responsibility to protect, Mr. Ban noted that the concept arose out of the brutal legacy of the 20th century, including the Holocaust, the killing fields of Cambodia, the genocides in Rwanda and Srebrenica, and other large-scale tragedies that underlined the failure of individual States to live up to their protection responsibilities. “The responsibility to protect is a concept whose time has come. For too many millions of victims, it should have come much earlier,” he said. Today’s dialogue is the fourth held since 2009 and focuses on timely and decisive response – the third pillar of the responsibility to protect. “We all agree that sovereignty must not be a shield behind which States commit grave crimes against their people. But achieving prevention and protection can be difficult,” said Mr. Ban. “In recent years, we have shown how good offices, preventive diplomacy, mediation, commissions of inquiry and other peaceful means can help pull countries back from the brink of mass violence… “However, when non-coercive measures fail or are considered inadequate, enforcement under Chapter VII will need to be considered by the appropriate intergovernmental bodies,” he added. “This includes carefully crafted sanctions and, in extreme circumstances, the use of force.” Chapter VII of the UN Charter allows the Security Council to use force in the face of a threat to peace or aggression, taking “such action by air, sea, or land forces as may be necessary to maintain or restore international peace and security,” including blockades and other operations by the forces of Member States. The Secretary-General pointed to the immense human cost of failing to protect the population of Syria, where more than 18,000 people, mostly civilians, have died since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began 18 months ago. He commended the General Assembly for its proactive response to the Syrian crisis. “It has shown that, while moments of unity in the Security Council have been few and far between, the rest of the world body need not be silent,” Mr. Ban said. The UN chief added that the Council’s paralysis does the Syrian people harm, damages its own credibility and weakens a concept that was adopted with such hope and expectations. “Let us by all means continue to talk through the responsibility to protect in all its aspects. Each year we achieve greater precision and common understanding,” he stated. “But let us recognize that we face an urgent test here and now. Words must become deeds. Promise must become practice.” Addressing the gathering, the General Assembly’s President, Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, noted that, through implementation of the responsibility to protect, the role of the UN is not to supplant or replace the State in meeting its legal obligation to protect. “The responsibility to protect is rather intended, as a modality for assisting a government that is unable to deliver on its protection obligations. The international community can only act in the event that a State ‘manifestly fails’ to protect its citizens,” he said. “So the international response is intended to reinforce, not undermine, national sovereignty. This should help governments to ensure full protection to populations.” Among the other participants in today’s day-long dialogue are the newly appointed Special Adviser of the Secretary-General on the Prevention of Genocide, Adama Dieng; Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson; and the Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights, Ivan Simonovic. In his remarks to the meeting, the recently-appointed Special Adviser of the Secretary-General on the Prevention of Genocide, Adama Dieng, pointed out that the range of tools available under the third pillar of the responsibility to protect is extensive.“It is our collective responsibility to study the implications of the use of each of them, and to understand the conditions under which the potential of each tool can be maximized,” Mr. Dieng said. “It is also our responsibility to establish and strengthen the structures that will make third-pillar tools actionable and effective.”Among the other participants in today’s day-long dialogue are Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson and the Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights, Ivan Simonovic. read more

The Hellenic Initiative Australia supports Axion Hellas medical mission to remote Aegean

first_imgThe Hellenic Initiative Australia will be funding a volunteer medical mission by Axion Hellas to four remote Aegean islands next month, providing preventive and specialised medical care for people living in these isolated communities.The $50,000 grant announced today will support Axion Hellas’ 7th Sea Crossing, which will visit the Dodecanese islands of Astypalea, Tilos, Halki and Kastellorizo between 6-14 April 2019.Axion Hellas’ team of medical volunteers will depart Athens on 6 April in a fleet of 12 rigid inflatable boats for the seven-day mission, covering approximately 730 nautical miles.Free medical examinations are expected to be provided to more than 1300 residents of the four islands, which have limited health care facilities and access to hospitals with specialist medical services. Axion Hellas will set up temporary clinics on each island, providing access to 23 specialist doctors and a comprehensive range of medical tests, including blood tests, eye and breast examinations, ultrasounds.The medical team will include approximately 50 doctors (of about 23 medical sub-specialties), 8 nurses, 5 dentists and 43 allied health professionals and support personnel. The first stop will be at Astypalea (population 1334) on 6-7 April, followed by Tilos (pop. 780) on 9 April, Halki (pop. 478) on 10-11 April and Kastellorizo (population 492) on 12-13 April 2019. Clinics will operate between 8.30am-3pm. Home visits will also be conducted on all islands for less mobile residents.This will be Axion Hellas’ first mission to these islands.The Hellenic Initiative Australia grant follows last year’s support for the September mission to Psara and Volissos (Chios), which assisted more than 500 people on the two islands.The Hellenic Initiative Australia is proud to continue its support for Axion Hellas and provide critical medical care to isolated and vulnerable island communities,” said THI Australia President, Nicholas Pappas OAM. “People living on these remote islands, particularly the elderly, face many challenges accessing basic and specialist healthcare, even more so during the winter months.”The grant was welcomed by Axion Hellas President Vassilis Pateras, who met with the THI Australia Board in Sydney in February. “We are very honoured to have joined forces with The Hellenic Initiative Australia in this important mission, which supports people living in remote communities and helps to save lives,” Mr Pateras said.As well as providing medical care during its annual missions to remote and isolated communities, Axion Hellas provides cultural and educational activities and funds infrastructure projects. A highlight of this mission will be a free concert by renowned performer, Alkistis Protopsalti in Kastellorizo on 13 April. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Death leaves Washougal restaurant in limbo

first_imgKimberly Sherertz and her late husband, William Sherertz, shared a number of interests, including their mutual enthusiasm for boating on the Columbia RiverBut the Battle Ground widow and mother of two didn’t share her husband’s passion for the $5 million fine-dining venue he envisioned for Washougal’s waterfront.Sherertz said she just doesn’t have the drive to open and operate the multimillion-dollar Black Pearl restaurant that William financed and broke ground on last fall. That’s why she is trying to lease or sell the two-story restaurant’s shell. It was supposed to open this summer on the former site of Washougal’s longtime Parker House Restaurant, overlooking the marina at the Port of Camas-Washougal.“I am just so sad that he couldn’t do this,” Kimberly Sherertz said.William Sherertz, chairman and chief executive officer of Vancouver-based Barrett Business Services Inc., died unexpectedly on Jan. 20. He was 64 years old.At first, Kimberly Sherertz wasn’t sure what to do with the $5 million restaurant project. The 12,000-square-foot building is part of her husband’s estate, which he left to his wife, the couple’s son, Cole; and their daughter, Elizabeth; as well as William’s two daughters, Alex and Sarah.Overwhelmed by decisions, the family finally decided “to push the pause button,” Kimberly Sherertz said.That has meant allowing contractors to finish the building’s exterior walls and roof, install doors and erect the building’s three-sided glass front with its views of Mt. Hood, the 350-slip marina and the Columbia River, just upstream from Steamboat Landing and Cottonwood Beach. Before they put the project on mothballs, construction crews laid gravel down and leveled the area surrounding the east and north sides of the structure.last_img read more

Xbox One Keyboard and mouse support arent far away

first_imgThere’s been something missing from the Xbox One since launch that a lot of players have eagerly hoped and waited for, and a vague tweet from Xbox chief Phil Spencer hints at a critical update in the works: native support for a mouse and keyboard. @lgriao @PNF4LYFE @Tak225Th Yep, keyboard and mouse support for Xbox would need to be there for this to work, those aren’t far away.— Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) July 21, 2015This comes on the cusp of the launch of Windows 10, which has the cool feature for gamers of enabling them to stream Xbox games to a PC. No more fighting over TV time with your partner, you can game while he catches up on the latest Arrow.In response to a few tweets about being able to reverse the mirror function, streaming your PC to the Xbox, Spencer addresses that yes, the system would need to be able to support peripherals like a mouse and keyboard for in game use, and says those this may be in the pipeline. But how long exactly is “far away?” Is there anything more to this reply than just an executive appeasing his loyal subjects?Until now, if you wanted to use your mouse or keyboard on the Xbox One for games, you would have to buy a third party piece of equipment. If Microsoft offered this in the Windows 10 update, and brought it over for Xbox gameplay, it would mean no more spending extra money on extra equipment. You could just plug in an (arguably, and possibly equally expensive to an adapter)  Xbox-branded mouse and keyboard and be good to go. Or maybe it will just support any old USB device, which would be great for those of us who have our favorite PC gaming gear that’s set to our specifications.This seems like the next logical step for the company, who is trying to completely streamline your home entertainment experience. Remember, at E3 this year Microsoft announced the Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller, which when paired with Windows 10, can be used for PC gaming, but also has two profiles, saves up in the mystical cloud, and will remember your settings between computer and console games. Though we wont see that until later this year, it could be the beginning of what’s to come from Microsoft and Xbox.last_img read more

Credit: doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0107456.g001 Explore furthercenter_img Saber-toothed cats have sparked the imagination of generations of children and adults alike, with their very long canines, the animals continue to strike fear in people to this day, despite the creatures being extinct for approximately 10,000 years. Over the years, scientists have offered various ideas to describe just how exactly the cats used their long teeth to bring down prey. Initial theories suggested they simply jumped on the backs of other animals and slashed at them with their teeth (hence the name saber) till the unfortunate victim died. A closer look revealed that such an approach was highly unlikely due to the toughness of the hide sported by most prey of the time, and the degree of muscle in the cats’ neck.More recently paleontologists came up with a theory called the “canine shear bite” which proposes that the cats jumped on the backs of victims first puncturing the skin with its lower jaw and then leveraging the neck to allow for slicing down into the victim with the long teeth. Brown claims this method wouldn’t work either because it wouldn’t generate enough force. He proposes that the cat’s first dug in just slightly with the lower jaw, for use as a lug, like a can-opener, then pushed mightily against the ground with their forelimbs. Such an approach, which Brown calls a “Class 1 Lever Model” would allow the cat to use the muscles in its legs, back, neck and jaws to bring down prey, providing much more leverage and force.Brown suggests further research, such as computer simulations would prove his idea correct, and furthermore, would likely explain the hunting techniques of most if not all of the “saber” beasts that once roamed the Earth killing with their massive teeth. More information: Brown JG (2014) Jaw Function in Smilodon fatalis: A Reevaluation of the Canine Shear-Bite and a Proposal for a New Forelimb-Powered Class 1 Lever Model. PLoS ONE 9(10): e107456. DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0107456AbstractThe jaw function of Smilodon fatalis has long been a source of debate. Although modern-day lions subdue large prey through the use of a suffocating throat bite, the dramatically elongated maxillary canines of S. fatalis suggest an alternative bite mechanism. The current literature favors a “canine shear-bite,” in which the depression of the cranium by the ventral neck flexors assists the mandibular adductors in closing the jaws. Although the model makes intuitive sense and appears to be supported by scientific data, the mechanical feasibility of “neck-powered” biting has not been experimentally demonstrated. In the present study, the computer-assisted manipulation of digitized images of a high-quality replica of an S. fatalis neck and skull shows that a rotation of the cranium by the ventral neck flexors will not result in jaw closure. Instead, the cranium and mandible rotate ventrally together (at the atlantooccipital joint), and the jaws remain in an open configuration. The only manner by which rotation of the cranium can simultaneously result in jaw closure is by an anterior rotation at the temporomandibular joint. Based on this finding, the author proposes a new Class 1 lever mechanism for S. fatalis jaw function. In this model, the mandible is immobilized against the neck of the prey and a dorsally directed force from the extension of the forelimbs rotates the cranium anteriorly at the temporomandibular joint. The maxillary canines pierce the prey’s neck and assist in clamping the ventral neck structures. The model is based on a maximum gape angle of approximately 90° and incorporates a secondary virtual point of rotation located slightly anteroventral to the temporomandibular joint. The Class 1 Lever Model is mechanically feasible, consistent with current data on S. fatalis anatomy and ecology, and may provide a basis for similar studies on other fossil taxa.

Brown has self-published a paper on the open access site PLoS ONE, detailing what he believes is the correct interpretation of how the now extinct saber-toothed cat brought down its prey.

The change affects “other” processes that may make use of media keys; if you run Spotify or iTunes on the desktop, or another other media application that supports multimedia keys, you may notice that the keys don’t function properly anymore if Chrome is running.It appears that Chrome is blocking other apps from using media keys. One solution for the issue is to close Chrome completely whenever you want to use an application that supports media keys. It is not the most practicable of solutions as it is not very comfortable and limits how you use the computer as you cannot use Chrome and any of these applications side by side anymore.Disabling Chrome’s Multimedia Key handlingGoogle Chrome comes with a flag currently that controls the browser’s hardware media key handling.  Flags are experimental features that let you control certain features in Chrome.

HELENA Mont — Jon Krakauer says a court ruling t

first_img HELENA, Mont. — Jon Krakauer says a court ruling that denies him documents detailing how a University of Montana quarterback’s expulsion over a rape allegation was overturned may set a precedent that harms the public’s ability to access government records.The author of “Into Thin Air” and “Into the Wild” made his first public comments about last week’s 4-3 ruling by the Montana Supreme Court by email to The Associated Press.The court said former quarterback Jordan Johnson’s privacy as a student outweighed Krakauer’s right to know what action Montana’s higher education commissioner took to reverse Johnson’s expulsion over the 2012 allegation.Johnson was later acquitted in state court.Krakauer says he believes he has a moral obligation to address what he called the flawed decision and is considering petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court.Matt Volz, The Associated Press FILE – In this April 26, 2016, file photo, “Into the Wild” author Jon Krakauer comments on his lawsuit against Montana’s higher education commissioner in Bozeman, Mont.

Digital invoices to save millions

first_imgMunicipalities are set to lower their billing costs by 65 per cent while the government will save €5 million with the introduction of e-Invoicing by the end of the year, Interior Minister Constantinos Petrides said on Tuesday.He presented the start of the ‘Cy e-Invoicing for local authorities’ project, which began at the beginning January and will be completed in the next 12 months and will make the process of paying municipal bills “safer and faster”.Petrides said the project aims to digitalise local authorities to make it easier for them to handle payments from residents.According to the relevant EU directive, the central government must be “technologically ready” to start e-invoicing by April 2019, and the wider public sector must be ready a year later.The project will digitalise and automate all aspects of paper transactions, making the exchange of services between local authorities and residents more direct, quick and efficient. The cost of the project will be just over €1 million.According to Andreas Chrysafis, a representative of AC Goldman Solution and Services taking part in the e-invoicing project, the public sector will be able to save approximately €5 million with the introduction of e-invoices. He said that according to a study in the public sector, approximately 500,000 invoices are printed a year, which cost 16.4 cents each, an expense that through e-invoicing would be brought down to six cents.Petrides said his ministry has done a lot to digitalise governance and minimise bureaucracy, introducing 16 programmes since 2014 with a further 28 in the planning stages, worth a total of €250 million.He added that there are many benefits to the new project as invoicing will be done “electronically, faster, safer, and economically, and funds will be saved on the part of the local authorities and the people.”Already, “the digital platform Ariadne is in use, delivering 68 digital services to citizens,” he added, outlining that a degree of digitalisation has also been achieved in other public-sector departments, such as the DLS portal, the ability for online payments of Social Insurance, the overall ability to find data and information, and also the introduction of new services such as e-delivery and e-justice.The project is co-funded by the European Union through the Connecting Europe Facility.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
