My films are like a guilty pleasure

first_imgFilmmaker Karan Johar says he considers his films to be a “guilty pleasure” for his audiences and is “unapologetically and unabashedly” obsessed with the mainstream trappings of storytelling, something he promises to continue in his content for Netflix. Johar, who has just inked a multi-year broad content deal with the streaming giant, said the global reaction to his 27-minute film as part of the collective ‘Lust Stories’ on Netflix made him realise there is much “outside of our country that is interested in us and the stories we tell”. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainA viewership revolution is just around the corner with the growth of OTT (over the top) platforms and it would be foolish to miss it, said the man behind Dharma Productions and its digital arm Dharmatic. Viewership habits have actually evolved and changed over the last decade even in India, he said, adding that Netflix is just the tip of the iceberg. “There is a major viewership explosion that’s around the corner and I can’t wait to actually be a part of that movement,” Johar said. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardJohar, who is known for directing Bollywood blockbusters such as Kuch Kuch Hota Hai , Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, and My Name is Khan and is also a successful mainstream producer, TV host and chat show anchor, said one cannot live insularly at a time of global content revolution. “Even when we attempt to do different stuff, there’s always a certain kind of quality that we try to project. Now we might hit it or miss it, but the endeavour is always to create high quality, superior content, and the kind of material that can be viewed not just in your country but even beyond that.” “It’s great to go global with your content and never live insularly and pretend like we are just living within the boundaries of our beautiful country… I think it’s platforms like Netflix that empower you to do just that,” he added. Johar added that he will do it in the style that he knows best because he has realised that people may like him or hate him, but they simply can’t ignore him. “I never see anyone but myself whenever I put out content, and even when it comes to digital, everybody has an impression that you can go wild, sexy or edgy, but let’s not forget that there’s organic storytelling that still needs to be told. There’s a large audience that needs to watch really strong narratives. I’ve always been unapologetically and unabashedly obsessed with the mainstream trappings of storytelling, and that’s what I want to do in digital as well, he said. People often come up to him and almost embarrassedly admit that they have watched his debut film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai over 100 times, a feeling they would not get for a film like Lagaan, Johar said. Some view my content as fluff and some have looked at it as romanticised. I will always get those diverse reactions and opinions about what I put out. But I always say, you can hate me, you can love me but you cannot be indifferent to me, and I hope you won’t be indifferent to the content we create. I’ve always said I’m like your guilty pleasure. So this guilty pleasure mode is what I hope to bring on to the OTT platform as well. And so there will be stuff that, I think, everyone will watch but pretend not to. The director believes the fear that digital revolution will eat into cinema has been replaced by hope for a new future. What is happening is that digital platforms empower one very strong entity in the creative industry and that’s our writers. Writers have been empowered the maximum in this space. In the last four or five years, the content in cinema has improved and that happened only because the writers are empowered elsewhere, they come with that empowerment and do better work even in cinema. There’s been an increase in footfalls, in the number of people visiting cinema halls, which is largely due to the digital revolution. One is helping the other and empowering the other and it’s a win-win situation for the media and entertainment industry.last_img read more

FrenchMoroccan Mounir Mahjoubi Named French Data Secretary

Rabat – Mounir Mahjoubi, the French-Moroccan who led French president-elect Emmanuel Macron’s digital campaign, has been named the State Secretary in charge of Data.The appointment was announced Wednesday, May 17 as prime minister Edouard Philippe revealed the full list of government titles.Mahjoubi joined Macron’s En Marche! campaign in January 2017, following stints running digital communications for Socialist Party candidate Ségolène Royale in 2007 and François Hollande in 2012. After working under Hollande as the head of the National Digital Council, a government technology advisory body, he jumped ship to the surprise candidate’s centrist movement.On May 5, two days before the presidential elections, Macron’s campaign was threatened by a last-minute leak of internal En Marche! emails. Mahjoubi had previously accused Russia of employing hacks and fake news to influence the election in the favor of far-right candidate Marine Le Pen. read more

Uganda not Sure About Voting for Morocco 2026

Rabat – While President of Uganda’s Football Association (FUFA) Moses Hassim Mogogo announced his official support for Morocco’s 2026 World Cup bid, he said that he does not have the last say when it comes to the interests of his country and the executive committee of FUFA.Uganda’s support for Morocco’s bid is pending approval from FUFA. Mogogo told Uganda Radio on Monday that he “personally” support the Moroccan bid. “I am for our own African brother to win this bid to host the World Cup. But I cannot decide because we shall meet as an executive and make the final decision on who to vote for.” Mogogo added that he believes the continent is ready to host the second African World Cup after South Africa hosted in 2010.“We executive members of the Confederation of African Football decided that since we are Presidents of football back in our countries then we should support the Morocco bid,” he added.The FUFA president has made it clear that the last word on Uganda’s support will come after consultations with the executive committee. If Uganda agrees to vote for Morocco, the kingdom can only hope the promise will last longer than South Africa’s fairweather support.Change of heart?A month ago, the president of South Africa’s Football Association, Danny Jordaan, expressed his full support for the Moroccan bid, saying that the federation will surely vote for the Moroccan bid. However, the government of South Africa took a different stance. South Africa’s Minister of Sports Tokozile Xasa said: “We are very clear that we cannot support Morocco.”The country’s parliament “was very straightforward in this regard, it is the mandate of the country, and it is an obligation for sporting bodies to understand what the country’s agenda is.”Only 14 days remain until the big day when 211 football federations will gather in Moscow to vote for their favorite bid on June 13.Morocco’s bid committee, however, seem to be aware of what may happen during the vote.CEO of the Moroccan bid Hicham El Amrani told the BBC  earlier this month that no one is “forced” to back the Moroccan bid “if he believes that it doesn’t serve the country or the country’s football interest.”“Even if Africa has always acted in unity, unity does not mean 100% of all the member associations, this is part of the democratic process,” he added.Several football federations might have changed their minds and chosen to support the US bid after Donald Trump’s threats. Addressing countries that receive US financial support, Trump said “It would be a shame if countries that we always support were to lobby against the US bid…” read more

UN legal chief calls on Lebanese leaders to demonstrate support for tribunal

20 April 2007It is time for Lebanon’s key political forces to not just express their support for the establishment of a tribunal to try the suspected killers of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, but to demonstrate it, the United Nations Legal Counsel said today as he called on all sides to seek a solution to their impasse on the issue. Nicolas Michel completed his meetings during his five-day visit to Lebanon by holding another round of talks today with Prime Minister Fuad Siniora and Speaker of the Parliament Nabih Berri, UN spokesperson Michele Montas told journalists.Mr. Michel has noted that all of his interlocutors during his visit to Lebanon, from Mr. Siniora and Mr. Berri to President Emile Lahoud and other parliamentarians and political figures, have indicated their support for the tribunal to be established.Now is the time for those figures and their parties to demonstrate that support, he said, adding that such an outcome is possible only if the parties resume their dialogue.Mr. Michel was dispatched to Beirut by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to offer legal assistance to the Lebanese as they work towards parliamentary ratification of the agreement on setting up the tribunal, a necessary step for the tribunal to enter into force. Yet Lebanon’s parliamentary forces have been deadlocked on the issue and there has been no vote yet.Speaking to reporters after his meeting today with Mr. Siniora, Mr. Michel said he hoped the parties would continue to seek a solution to their impasse and he urged them to do so.The planned tribunal will be of “an international character” to deal with the assassination of Mr. Hariri, who was killed along with 22 others in a massive car bombing in downtown Beirut in February 2005.Once it is formally established, it will be up to the tribunal to determine whether other political killings in Lebanon since October 2004 were connected to Mr. Hariri’s assassination and could therefore be dealt with by the tribunal.In April 2005 the Security Council set up the International Independent Investigation Commission (IIIC) after an earlier UN mission found that Lebanon’s own inquiry into the Hariri assassination was seriously flawed and that Syria was primarily responsible for the political tensions that preceded the attack. Its mandate runs out next year.Serge Brammertz, the current head of the IIIC, told the Council last September that evidence obtained so far suggests that a young, male suicide bomber, probably non-Lebanese, detonated up to 1,800 kilograms of explosives inside a van to assassinate Mr. Hariri. read more

Firm hopes to be 1st with skillbased slots

by Wayne Parry, The Associated Press Posted Sep 26, 2016 11:19 pm MDT Last Updated Sep 27, 2016 at 12:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Firm hopes to be 1st with skill-based slots ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – A New York firm hopes to be the first in the world to install skill-based slot machines on casino floors in which the main determining factor in how much a player can win is his or her ability to play the game.GameCo told The Associated Press on Tuesday that it is ready to put machines in the three Atlantic City casinos owned by Caesars Entertainment as soon as the first week in October, pending approval by New Jersey gambling regulators.But it is in a race with rival firm Gamblit, which earlier this month announced plans to put similar machines in California and Nevada in October, also at Caesars-owned casinos.The machines have an element of randomness common to regular slot machines in terms of the environment players are presented with. How well or poorly they manoeuvr their way through the game will determine how much they might win.They are aimed squarely at millennials and those who like playing games on social media networks or on their phones, and who may be less inclined to play traditional pushbutton slot machines.“There’s a great focus on being first,” GameCo CEO and co-founder Blaine Graboyes told the AP. “Certainly we’d like to be first for ourselves, our investors and our customers. But we’re interested in this being a long-term proposition.”Both companies are awaiting approval from gambling regulators in the respective states in which they hope to launch. Other manufacturers working on similar products include IGT and Nanotech Gaming.In Atlantic City, GameCo plans to deploy three triple-unit carousels at Caesars, two at Harrah’s and two at Bally’s, with a total of 21 playing stations.Titled “Danger Arena,” the games give the player a brief tutorial, make sure the customer knows how to use the controls and that they are working properly, and then presents the customer with a map, or game scenario. This scenario will vary randomly, and constitutes the element of chance or randomness that is the hallmark of traditional slot machines. It is then up to the player to manoeuvr through the playing field in 45-second increments.“If you take out six or more robots, you’re in the money, and if you take out 10, you get the highest payout,” Graboyes said.Each game also includes a secondary random winning opportunity, with a possible instant cash win ranging from $1 to $5,000, he added, so that even poorly skilled players have a chance at winning.The company is seeking licensing in Atlantic City through the Division of Gaming Enforcement’s New Jersey First program, which speeds approvals for new gambling products if they are introduced first in the resort town.“We are glad to have the opportunity to review GameCo’s skill-based game through our New Jersey First program,” said DGE Director David Rebuck. “That program allows products that are submitted to our DGE Technical Services lab before any other jurisdiction and that meet our high regulatory standards to get out onto the casino floor expeditiously.”Gamblit plans to debut its machines at Harrah’s Rincon in southern California. After field trials, Caesars Entertainment anticipates putting machines with 125 Gamblit gambling positions into multiple Nevada casinos, and intends to put 100 more positions into additional markets in early 2017.___Follow Wayne Parry at http://twitter.com/WayneParryAC read more

Oyu Tolgoi continues to grow in stature – more copper gold and

first_imgThe April and May issues of International Mining include articles on the great Oyu Tolgoi development in the Gobi Desert of southern Mongolia. Ivanhoe Mines and BHP Billiton have just announced the new discovery of a zone of shallow copper-molybdenum-gold mineralisation some 10 km north of the Ivanhoe Mines/Rio Tinto Oyu Tolgoi copper-gold mining complex currently under construction. The discovery, known as Ulaan Khud North, extends the known strike length of the Oyu Tolgoi mineralised system by an additional 3 km to the north, to more than 23 km. Less than half of the 23-km-long mineralised trend at Oyu Tolgoi has been extensively drill-tested to date. An ongoing exploration program including proprietary, induced-polarization (IP) technology has identified additional exploration and development targets.“The Ulaan Khud North discovery reinforces our longstanding belief that with continued exploration there is excellent potential to discover new porphyry deposits, rich in copper and gold, which are associated with the world-class Oyu Tolgoi mineralized trend,” said Rpbert Friedland, Executive Chairman and CEO of Ivanhoe.Ulaan Khud North is located on a 19,625-ha exploration licence that is part of Ivanhoe’s joint-venture partnership with BHP Billiton, which was formed in 2005. BHP Billiton has earned a 50% interest in the joint venture, which includes the Ulaan Khud North property, by spending $8 million in exploration costs and conducting an airborne survey using the proprietary FalconTM gravity gradiometer system over the Oyu Tolgoi area.A total of 25 drill holes (UKD031 to 055) totalling 6,561 m, ranging in depth from 182 to 377 m, defined the new zone of shallow porphyry copper mineralisation over an area of 600 m by 300 m. Most of the holes are vertical and were drilled on a 100-m-square grid. The mineralised zone starts beneath 60 to 80 m of Cretaceous clay and gravels, indicative of a near-surface deposit with open-pit mining potential. Ivanhoe’s geologists believe that the near-surface copper mineralisation discovered to date at Ulaan Khud North may be part of a much larger deposit.Mineralisation occurs in quartz monzodiorite, similar to mineralised quartz monzodiorites at Oyu Tolgoi. A total of 23 of the 25 drill holes drilled at Ulaan Khud North intersected the mineralised quartz monzodiorite. The mineralisation is porphyry-style stockwork, disseminations and massive veins of chalcopyrite, with molybdenite disseminations and veinlets and trace bornite. Many holes encountered mineralisation with greater than 1% Cu in multiple individual 1 m samples, while almost all holes have longer intervals of mineralisation grading greater than 0.3% Cu. Numerous post-mineral intrusive rocks cut the mineralised quartz monzodiorite and define the boundaries of most mineralised intervals.“The presence of intensively mineralised and altered quartz monzodiorite and basalt xenoliths within the moderately mineralised quartz monzodiorite supports the idea that an earlier phase of stronger mineralisation exists at depth and along margins of the area,” said Richard Gosse, Ivanhoe’s Vice-President, Exploration.. The mineralisation at Ulaan Khud North starts as shallow as 60 m below surface, much higher than the mineralised zone at Hugo Dummett to the south. The fact that Ulaan Khud North occurs in similar Devonian host rocks to Hugo Dummett suggests that the main Oyu Tolgoi porphyry system trend is relatively shallow in this area and that potential for surface-mineable targets still exist within the Oyu Tolgoi trend and Ulaan Khud North in particular.The Ulaan Khud North property adjoins the Shivee Tolgoi Entrée Gold-Ivanhoe Mines joint-venture property and is about 3 km north of mineralisation found at Ulaan Khud on that licence.The Pre-Mining Agreement for the Ulaan Khud North property specifies that Ivanhoe and BHP Billiton have three years to conduct additional exploration, complete an environmental impact study, prepare a final feasibility study and gain approval for the design for the project. The agreement also specifies that a Technical and Economical Study to mine the deposit is required to be delivered to the Mineral Resources Authority of Mongolia (MRAM) by June 30, 2013.“The Pre-Mining Agreement provides a three-year window to aggressively explore the project and to prepare resource, technical and economic studies. It also paves the way for the Ulaan Khud North Project to obtain all necessary mining permits and approvals,” said Gosse.This newly discovered mineralisation is just north of the Entrée – Oyu Tolgoi LLC (OTLLC) joint venture ground. As already noted, the discovery, named Ulaan Khud North, extends the known Oyu Tolgoi mineralised trend by a further 3 km. The trend includes the Entrée-OTLLC joint venture’s Heruga deposit, Hugo North Extension deposit and Ulaan Khud zone.Entrée’s President & CEO, Greg Crowe, commented, “This discovery, while not on the Entrée-OTLLC joint venture property, is located just 3 km north of the joint venture’s Ulaan Khud zone. The strike length of the Oyu Tolgoi mineralised system is now at least 23 km, of which 17 km are located within the Entrée-OTLLC joint venture ground. Less than half of the trend has been extensively drill-tested to date. The discovery of Ulaan Khud North is one more example of the magnitude and scale of the trend and the excellent potential for the discovery of additional mineralised zones.”Ulaan Khud is a near-surface copper and gold mineralized zone located within the Entree-OTLLC joint venture ground.  The Ulaan Khud zone was originally discovered in 2006 during condemnation drilling undertaken as part of an Earn-In Agreement under which the joint venture was formed.  Results were released on October 26, 2006, highlights of which include Hole EGD118 (130 m at 0.35% Cu and 0.11 g/t Au) and Hole EGD110 (154 m at 0.34% Cu and 0.08 g/t Au).last_img read more

Good employers have nothing to fear from whistleblowers legislation

first_imgTHE PUBLIC EXPENDITURE Minister says that the new whistleblowers legislation is not designed to frighten employers, it is designed empower workers.Introducing the Protected Disclosures Bill 2013 into the Dáil tonight, Brendan Howlin called the bill a “catalyst to change”.“I see the introduction of such protections as a catalyst for a change which views openness and transparency as an asset rather than a liability, a change towards a culture that values the contribution of employees and citizens and recognises those contributions as positive, effective tools in working towards the achievement of the common good rather than as something to be limited or destroyed.Good employers have nothing to fear from their employees reporting things that are going wrong. The ideal therefore is to encourage employers to adopt a culture that readily accepts reports of wrongdoing from its workers. The bill was agreed by Seán Fleming of Fianna Fáil and Mary-Lou McDonald of Sinn Féin.McDonald said that while she welcomed the bill, she felt the timing, in light of a Garda whistleblower appearing before the Public Accounts Committee to be ironic.““The irony of the Minister presenting the Protected Disclosures Bill at this time will not be lost on many in light of recent events at the PAC.Last week government Ministers cynically used the media to question the motivation of opposition members of the committee, undermining the work of the PAC and arguably the whistleblower himself.“Brendan Howlin must ensure that the necessary supports, resources and training are provided to maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of the Whistleblower legislation.”Read: Damien Kiberd: Are whistleblowers saints?

ND leading in the polls

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The elections are nowhere near in sight, but Greeks believe that a change of government is bound to happen, whenever they go back to polls. According to the lastest poll, SYRIZA is losing popularity, remaining second with a 16 percent, while the opposition has risen to 32 percent, which should give ND the majority, if it is reflected to the next election result. All smaller parties seem to be gaining from the Government’s loss, most notably the Nazi Goldent Dawn party which is third with 8 percent and the Communist Party which remains fourth with 6 percent. PASOK seems to be on the rise, with 5.5 percent, while the other centre-left party, To Potami, is below 3 percent, as is the co-governing party of Independent Greeks  (ANEL) – if this tendency is confirmed in the elections, neither party will make it to the Parliament. The same survey shows leader of the opposition, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, as most suitable for PM by 36 percent, while Alexis Tsipras lags behind with 19.5 percent. The majority of those taking part in the survey, conducted by the University of Macedonia, believe (by a percentage of 70.5) that Nea Dimocratia will win the next general election, however, only 38 percent believe that an early election should be held and 64.5 percent are pessimistic, expecting 2017 to be worse than 2016. last_img read more

Samsung Galaxy S8 Series Battery Dead Ringer For Exploding Note 7

first_img Samsung—the very definition of “get back on the horse”—returned to the smartphone market last month with the new flagships Galaxy S8 and S8+.Starting at $750 and $850, respectively, the pair are set to go on sale Friday.But before you pony up two weeks’ paycheck, take a look inside the handsets in iFixit’s latest teardowns.The smaller S8 stands at 5.8 inches, with a non-removable 3,000mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and MicroSD card support. Add to that an 8-megapixel selfie camera and 12-megapixel rear shooter, featuring dual pixel autofocus and 4K video capture.A near clone of its 6.2-inch big brother, the Galaxy S8 also includes a USB-C charging port, headphone jack (take that, Apple!), and rear fingerprint reader, but no physical Home button (it’s been replaced by a virtual one).Samsung Galaxy S8 (via iFixit)“It’s like someone left the S8+ in their pocket on laundry day and it came out of the wash slightly shrunken, but no worse for wear,” the iFixit team wrote of the near-identical devices.In both phones, the battery pack—butt of all Samsung jokes for the next decade—remains firmly adhered to the casing, making it “unnecessarily” difficult, but not impossible, to replace.As iFixit pointed out, however, the larger S8+ 3,500mAh battery voltage, capacity, and design tolerances are virtually indistinguishable from the Note 7, recalled for exploding power units.“Samsung is clearly confident that their battery issue was a manufacturing quality assurance one, and the S8 series’ glued-in battery is proof that they have faith in their eight-point plan,” the repair experts said. “The design surrounding the battery … is very, very similar to the Note 7.”Samsung Galaxy S8+ (via iFixit)No matter how fancy the curved, nearly bezel-free, edge-to-edge screen looks, Samsung’s glass-on-glass design is pretty insurmountable, even for the most skilled DIYers. According to iFixit, front and back glass plus strong internal adhesive likely equal a cracked gadget.On the bright side, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ boast a number of modular components, including the headphone jack, that can be easily restored.Overall, the twin phones earned a matching (and fairly pathetic) repairability score of four out of 10—iFixit’s way of warning folks to not try this at home. Owners should keep the phone intact to maintain its compatibility with Gear VR and Gear 360 virtual reality accessories, and new voice assistant Bixby.

Wildest Man of the West – The Gunslinging Exploits of Wild Bill

first_imgBorn in 1837 in Troy Grove, Illinois, Wild Bill Hickok is an American legend. He was a gunslinger, lawman, spy, scout, and showman. He is one of the men who seem to be the epitome of the Wild West. He worked his way across the frontier in a variety of capacities, and in so doing, became a part of history.Hickok was one of seven children born to William and Polly Hickok. The family were farmers, and William also ran a station on the Underground Railroad, helping slaves escape to freedom. According to Legends of America, that was how young Bill had his first exposure to hostile gunfire.Wild Bill HickokLaw officers opened fire when they suspected the Hickok’s to be carrying more than just hay in their wagon. Bill became interested in guns, and even though it wasn’t approved of by his God-fearing parents, he began to get a reputation as a marksman.At 17, Bill left home to take a job as a towpath driver on the Illinois and Michigan canal. A year later, he went to Kansas, taking a job as a stagecoach driver for the Oregon and Santa Fe trails.Conestoga wagon on Oregon Trail.Stagecoach travel had its dangers, especially the threat of bandits and hostile Indians, and Bill was able to put his marksmanship to good use. On one of his trips, he was sleeping under a bush in Colorado, while his passengers slept in the coach.The passengers were awoken by a ruckus outside and looked out to see Bill in a fight with a cinnamon bear. At the end, he was seriously wounded, but the bear was dead. Hickok had killed it with a six-inch knife.James B. Hickok in the 1860s, during his pre-gunfighter days.After recovering from his encounter with the bear, he went back to Kansas and took a position as a peace officer in Monticello. Not one to let grass grow under his feet, sometime later he moved on to working for the Pony Express and Overland Express office in Rock Creek, Nebraska.In 1861, a man who had a personal dispute with Hickok walked into the station with two of his friends. Ostensibly there for legitimate reasons, an altercation quickly arose between Hickok and the others, which started with cursing and ended in gunfire.In this 1861-dated artist’s rendering, a pony express rider greets Western Union linemen as they string wires of the first transcontinental telegraph.Hickok’s antagonist was dead at the scene, and the two companions died later of injuries sustained in the fight. The story of the fight began to receive all manner of embellishment as people retold it, and the growing story was the beginning of Hickok’s real notoriety.He moved on again, this time to Sedalia, Missouri, joining the Union Army as a scout and wagon master. It was during his time in the military that he got the name “Wild Bill.” He intervened in a situation where a saloonkeeper was about to be hung for shooting someone in a fight.Wild Bill Hickok in 1869; the unsheathed knife is likely a photographer’s prop.Hickok apparently shot over the heads of the mob intent on hanging, and stared them down until they left. A woman who was present called out “Thank you, Wild Bill!”, and the name stuck.In 1867, not long after the war had ended, Hickok was approached by a reporter for the New York Herald, called Henry M. Stanley.During their interaction, Wild Bill told the man that he had personally killed over 100 men. He may have been exaggerating, but Stanley took it as gospel and reported it as such, making Bill an instant legend among the paper’s readership.Hickok, Texas Jack Omohundro, and Buffalo Bill Cody as the “Scouts of the Plains” in 1873.He took up the post of sheriff for Hays City, Kansas, and stayed there for several years. During that time he shot and killed other men a couple of times, adding to his reputation. His tenure in Hays City ended after he shot two cavalry officers who were assaulting him in a saloon, and he moved on to become a city marshal in Abilene, Kansas.During his time in Abilene, he slowly became less invested in his duties as a lawman and more invested in gambling and women. He continued in his capacity as a city marshal until he accidentally shot a deputy.Wild Bill Hickok after killing Davis Tutt in a duel. Harper’s New Monthly Magazine, February 1867.After the shooting, Hickok lost his taste for being a lawman, and instead tried to take advantage of the fascination Easterners had with the romance and adventure of the Wild West. He started his own Wild West show.The results weren’t good, and the venture ended up eating away his $1,000 investment. Not long after, he was asked by Buffalo Bill Cody, an old friend from his early days in Kansas, to join a production he was putting on called “Scouts of the Prairies.” Hickok joined him and made tolerably good money, while still being able pursue his fondness for women and cards, beginning to add alcohol to the list, as well.A rare tintype of Hickok, c. 1870, found with the last letter he wrote to his wife, Agnes Thatcher Lake.In 1874, Hickok left Cody’s show, and went back out west, marrying a couple of years later. A month after the honeymoon ended, Wild Bill headed west for the goldfields. He ended up in Deadwood, South Dakota.That really was the beginning of the end. He started out in mining camps, but soon his other obsessions brought him back to town — and to the saloons. His drinking had become quite heavy and was making it hard for him to resume his old role as a professional gambler.The card hand held by Hickok at his death, now widely known as the “dead man’s hand.” Photo by Tage Olsin CC BY-SA 2.0Calamity Jane at Wild Bill Hickok’s Gravesite, Deadwood, Dakota Territory.In 1876, Hickok was in a saloon playing poker and had his back to the door. According to True West, he had reportedly been losing, but finally had been dealt a decent hand when a man named Jack McCall walked into the saloon, drew his gun, and fired it right into the back of Hickok’s head.Hickok was killed instantly, the bullet going through his skull and hitting the man who had been sitting across from him, lodging in his wrist.Read another story from us: Where cowboys went to party – 25 Photos of Old West saloonsThe legend who had lived by the gun had died by the gun and put an end to the legend. As a final note, he was reported to be holding a pair of aces and a pair of eights in his hand at the time he was killed.

This randomized sub-study is examining leaflet mobility of both the Sapien 3 valve and surgical heart valves in low-risk patients undergoing valve replacement for the treatment of severe aortic stenosis.Enrollment in the PARTNER 3 main study of the Sapien 3 valve in low-risk patients was already complete. As previously indicated, Edwards continues to anticipate that data from the PARTNER 3 trial will be presented at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2019 annual meeting, and expects to receive U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for the indication late that year.In addition, Edwards is studying the Sapien 3 Ultra System as part of a single-arm multi-center trial of up to 30 intermediate-risk patients. These data will be utilized to supplement the European regulatory filing for the Sapien 3 Ultra System. Edwards now expects that the European launch of the Sapien 3 Ultra system will occur later in 2018. This updated timing for the European launch does not change the company’s sales guidance for 2018, and Edwards continues to expect the U.S. introduction of this system in late 2018.For more information: www.edwards.com Siemens Go.Top CT scanner at SCCT19Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:05Loaded: 15.14%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:05 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Children Youth and Veterans Homeless in America

first_img In February, the Committee on Financial Services held a hearing titled “Homeless in America: Examining the Crisis and Solutions to End Homelessness.” The hearing allowed members to hear from witnesses about the challenges of putting an end to homelessness as well as their and their recommendations for legislation to tackle the issue.The Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) released by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) provides an estimate of the homeless population in the United States.The 2018 AHAR revealed that there were 552,830 people experiencing homelessness in the nation on a single night—representing a 0.3 percent increase compared to the previous year. This is also the second year in a row of increases in homelessness despite an overall 13.2 percent decline in homelessness since 2010, according to HUD.The AHAR, which also examines the demographics of the people experiencing homelessness found that nearly 160,000 children and youth experienced homelessness—which is nearly 30 percent of the total—and over 216,000 women and girls representing 40 percent of the total. Data also revealed that nearly 9 percent of veterans experienced homelessness in 2018.African Americans comprised 40 percent of all people experiencing homelessness, despite making up only 13 percent of the nation’s general population, and Hispanic or Latino people comprised 25 percent, the report stated. The findings also show that more progress has been made in reducing homelessness among some sub populations than others. The greatest progress in reducing homelessness has been among veterans due in large part to increased funding for this population.Addressing the causes of homelessness, the memorandum cited the growing rental housing crisis in many parts of the country as a contributor in driving the lowest income families into homelessness. According to the National Low Income Housing Coalition, the U.S. has a shortage of more than 7.2 million rental homes that are affordable and available to the lowest income renter households.According to the memorandum, 71 percent of the lowest income renter households are severely cost burdened spending more than half of their incomes on rent and utilities. Only 22 counties in the country can afford a one-bedroom rental home.Through the administration of three main homeless assistance programs—Emergency Solutions Grants, Continuum of Care program and HUD Veteran Affairs Supported Housing program—serve people experiencing homelessness. In addition to this, the report also pointed out that Congress created the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) to coordinate the federal response to homelessness across relevant federal agencies.The hearing also focused on legislative proposals such as “The Ending Homelessness Act of 2019” introduced by Chairwoman Waters to provide $13.27 billion over five years to several critical federal housing programs and initiatives. The “Working Together to End Homelessness Act of 2019,” a discussion draft from Chairwoman Waters aims to permanently reauthorize USICH.The “Homes for Our Heroes Act of 2019,” is another discussion draft from Representative Peters that would require HUD and the Department of Veteran Affairs to provide more detailed reporting on the HUD-VASH programs.The “Veteran Housing Opportunities and Unemployment Support Extension Act of 2019”, align eligibility for the HUD-VASH Program with other homelessness services furnished by the Department of Veterans Affairs.The panel comprised of the following witnesses:Ann Marie Oliva, Senior Policy Advisor, Corporation for Supportive HousingNan Roman, President and CEO, National Alliance to End HomelessnessJoshua Stewart, Director of Policy, National Coalition for Homeless VeteransJustin T.

Cyprus Greece discuss arms sales under EU defence umbrella

first_imgCyprus and Greece on Monday discussed possibilities for cooperation in the defence industry within the framework of the EU’s Permanent Structured Cooperation (Pesco).Defence Minister Christoforos Fokaides met in Nicosia with Greece’s Alternate Minister of Defence Dimitris Vitsas, who is in Cyprus to attend a ceremony on Tuesday for the handover of remains belonging to Greek nationals who died in August 1964 while on board the patrol boat Phaethon at Tyllirias when it was bombed by Turkey.In statements after Monday’s meeting, Fokaides said Cypriot companies were interested in producing dual-use products, to be used both for military and non-military purposes.He said Nicosia aimed to increase defence spending to 2 per cent of GDP in line with the broader European target under Pesco, which is also along the lines of what Nato members are required to spend.Fokaides also announced that the two sides finalised a contract for the procurement of 11 general-purpose trucks, which had been pending.Fokaides said various obstacles to the procurement of military equipment to Cyprus were being lifted through Pesco, which he said was a significant development.Following the 1974 invasion, Cyprus could not procure arms from the US or Europe. The US embargo was lifted in late 2015 for defensive weapons only. Cyprus has bought arms over the years from Russia and Greece.  In the late 80s France agreed to sell the Republic its first serious hardware in the form of modern battle tanks, anti-tank helicopters, anti-tank missiles, and self-propelled artillery.Vitsas said cooperation between Athens and Nicosia was constantly being pushed forward and it had on Monday taken another step towards this. Referring to Pesco, Vitsas said that Greece and Cyprus insisted on including regional defence industries in the overall EU framework, along with the major European arms suppliers.The Greek Minister also met on Monday with Humanitarian Affairs Commissioner Photis Photiou ahead of Tuesday’s handover of remains. After the meeting, he sent out an appeal to all involved in the issue of missing persons to cooperate at the highest level to resolve the humanitarian concern.  You May LikeMBA Degrees | Search AdsMBA Programs Online – See For YourselfMBA Degrees | Search AdsUndoDr. 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 ArePopularEverythingUndo 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

Halloumi PDO delay due to trade issues for Turkish Cypriots

first_imgThe delay in the registration of halloumi as a PDO product is due to disagreements between the government and the European Commission with the latter flirting with the idea of direct trade of the product for Turkish Cypriots, reports said on Friday.According to Phileleftheros, Brussels is unhappy with four conditions put forward by Nicosia following the temporary July 2015 agreement between the two leaders and European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker pending the reunification of the island.Nicosia raised objections to details concerning the agreement that were made known to the government at a later stage, which it deemed downgrading the sovereign rights of the Republic of Cyprus, Phileleftheros said citing sources.One of the amendments Nicosia has requested to the 2015 agreement is for the Commission, in tandem with the approval of halloulmi / hellim as a PDO, to amend the Green Line Regulation so that the halloumi produced by the TC community is exported from legal ports and airports of the Republic of Cyprus. Otherwise, hellim can be exported directly from the occupied areas, through the ‘direct trade’ the Commission desires, thus giving the breakaway regime a ‘Taiwan-like’ status, the daily said.Nicosia also wants reassurances that the current procedure followed by the Commission on the halloumi PDO will not repeated for other PDO applications of Cyprus. Something like that would mean binding Nicosia into a bi-communal decision-making framework, the daily said.Another objection of Nicosia is that the Commission’s halloumi proposal gives Brussels an executive role in the implementation of the acquis.The government also feels that the bi-annual reports the Commission has requested to be sent to it directly by international certification body Bureau Veritas, which would be tasked with inspecting halloumi/hellim production throughout the island, is another encroachment of Nicosia by Brussels. Nicosia feels that it should be the recipient of the reports, not Brussels.The daily also said that it saw a letter President Nicos Anastasiades sent to Juncker last month urging him to speed up procedures since all requirements have been met.In his letter, Anastasiades said that even though the PDO registration procedure for cheeses usually takes between four to 10 months, in the case of Cyprus it has exceeded 3.5 years.Further delays and inaction cause legal uncertainty about the rights and obligations deriving from the use of the name halloumi, the letter reportedly said.“The delay encourages new applications and puts serious obstacles to the effective protection of the product within the EU today and in relation with issues pertaining to the PDO issue in the future,” it said.Despite that regulations don’t provide for timeframes, it said, the principles of good administration, legal assurance and sincere cooperation guiding EU actions dictate a final decision directly on the part of the Commission is given promptly on this application.Anastasiades reportedly told Juncker that the delay encourages third parties – at a national, European and international level – to attempt to register as a PDO product under halloumi/hellim or similar names. There are ongoing procedures with regard to these applications before the EU Intellectual Property Office and European courts, but, due to the delay in the Commission decision, the means at the disposal of Cypriot authorities to deal with these applications and other actions are inadequate, the letter said.On Tuesday, Agriculture Minister Costas Kadis blamed the lack of progress on political reasons, adding that the application had been linked with the Green Line Regulation and the Cyprus problem.A Commission spokesman said Wednesday the case was at the stage of examining objections but he could not say whether procedures would be expedited.The island’s bid received a boost in 2015 following a visit by Juncker to Cyprus during which the two communities came to an understanding over the issue. Until that time, Turkish Cypriot producers were concerned about inspections falling under the sole responsibility of the Republic of Cyprus, leading to months of negotiations.As part of the agreement, it was announced that the Green Line regulation would be amended to allow Turkish Cypriot producers to trade hellim through Cyprus’ legal ports.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
