Stars Help Serve Meals To The Homeless On Christmas Eve

first_imgA Merry Christmas came to Skid Row on Christmas Eve.Lisa Rinna and Harry HamlinCredit/Copyright: LA MissionThe celebration was made possible by the generosity of hundreds of the Los Angeles Mission’s dedicated volunteers and hard-working staff. Faithful Mission supporters, through both large and small donations, came together to supply the need for Christmas. As a result of their efforts, thousands of toys and goodies were gift-wrapped and given out by Santa and his helpers to children delighted to be in a Christmas wonderland setting. At the same time, nearly 4,000 sat down to enjoy a gourmet dinner (served by Hollywood celebrities and local political leaders) in the Christmas decorated alfresco dining area on Fifth Street.Among the stars who took part were Bella Thorne, Karina Smirnoff, Lisa Rinna, Shaunie O’Neal, Joey Luthman, Kate Linder, Harry Hamlin, Jo Frost and many more.Toyota and Nestlé stepped up to be the primary sponsors of the event. JAKKS Pacific, Imperial Toys and “A Foundation for Kids” donated thousands of toys distributed to children and their parents. As well as furnishing toys, The Festival of Children Foundation created an amazing winter wonderland with their “Sharing the Spirit Holiday Party” tent presented by Center for Living Peace.“Expressing love for those who feel forgotten is what we do here. We especially appreciate the unceasing generosity of the people of Los Angeles and our surrounding communities at Christmas,” said Herbert L. Smith, President of the Mission. “Their support gives us the ability to ramp up what we do everyday into a delightful Christmas celebration. We get to see joy on the faces of those going through tough times. Special events like this help to encourage them that their lives can turn around and be different.”A lot of thought and preparation went into making this event work for children of all ages. Volunteers spent hundreds of hours sorting and wrapping the gifts so they could be distributed in an age and gender appropriate manner. All the toys were gift-wrapped to give children the choice of opening their gifts immediately or waiting until Christmas morning.The Sharing the Spirit Holiday Party featured Santa, Christmas trees and every kind of seasonal decoration and joyful music along with fun crafts for the children. Nestlé also donated candies, and ice cream treats. Plus, they supplied lots of bottled water.Los Angeles Mission Chef Chris Cormier and the kitchen staff worked for weeks to design and prepare a special holiday feast. The menu featured Orange Glazed Ham, the Mission’s famous Three-Cheese Macaroni, Thyme and Baby Carrots, fresh Brussels Sprouts, a cranberry relish and dinner rolls. The meal was complete with fruit pies for dessert.A ton and a half of ham was glazed, baked and sliced; 800 pounds of macaroni was prepared with a blend of three different cheeses and baked with a breadcrumb topping; 400 pounds of fresh baby carrots were steamed with thyme, along with 400 pounds of Brussels Sprouts, 4,000 cups of cranberry relish, 4,000 dinner rolls and 500 fruit pies prepared and served.“The Los Angeles Mission helps those most in need and alone during the holidays, and we’re proud to lend our support and volunteer time to its meaningful cause,” said Michael Rouse, vice president of philanthropy, community affairs and diversity & inclusion for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. “Toyota has a broad commitment to understanding the needs of our communities and making an impact through the help of our generous associates, families and partners.”“We are privileged to support and partake in the Christmas Eve festivities with the Los Angeles Mission,” said Rita Henderson, Manager Community Affairs, Nestlé USA. “In the present climate where the needs are so great and resources scarce, the Los Angeles Mission is truly making a difference in our community and deserves our support. It is fulfilling for our Nestlé employee volunteers to do their part to give back to the community, especially during the holiday season when so many are doing without.”“The Los Angeles Mission is very grateful to everyone whose donations made today’s event possible,” said President Smith. “Some sixty percent of our annual operating budget is raised in the final three months of the year. We grapple with the harsh reality of trying to meet more need with fewer finances. The impact of this tough economy hits us hard every day as more individuals and families come to us for help. This means we work very hard to get the most out of every dollar that is donated.”“JAKKS Pacific is pleased to support the Los Angeles Mission once again, and create a magical experience for many deserving children and families in Los Angeles,” stated Anne-Marie Grill, Vice President of Corporate Communications & Philanthropy, JAKKS Pacific, Inc. “For many children here today, the toy that we give will be the only present they receive all year. We are happy to work with the Mission to bring smiles to under-served children this holiday season.”“Festival of Children Foundation supports children’s charities nationwide, but today, we’re focusing on bringing Christmas to the children served by the Los Angeles Mission,” said Sandy Segerstrom Daniels, Founder and Executive Director of Festival of Children Foundation. “We’re honored to have the opportunity to share our blessings with them. Christmas means a spirit of love, and that’s what we want every child here today to feel…loved.”At the Los Angeles Mission, Tuesday morning began early (4:30 a.m.) for the staff and volunteers. There were last minute gift donations to wrap, and an elaborate dinner for 4,000 to prepare. Kitchen volunteers also stayed busy serving breakfast to those who came early to stand in line.By 6:00 AM Fifth Street from Wall Street to San Pedro was closed to vehicular traffic and the street set up begun.Many who came to Friday’s event live in temporary housing in the Skid Row area, others stay in shelters, and many came from the streets. All are greeted by staff and volunteers with love and served a hearty meal and given holiday treats. As they waited to be seated and served, the guests enjoyed holiday music from a number of local musical groups and choirs.last_img read more

Facing arrest Perus exprez Garcia shoots himself dead

first_imgLima: Peru’s former president Alan Garcia shot himself in the head at his home on Wednesday as police were about to arrest him in a sprawling corruption case, his lawyer and hospital officials said. The 69-year-old Garcia was undergoing emergency surgery for “a bullet wound to his head” at the Casimiro Ulloa Emergency Hospital in Lima, the hospital said. Peru’s Health Minister Zulema Tomas said Garcia was in “very serious and critical” condition. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US”We’ve had to resuscitate him three times. He’s had three cardiac arrests,” said Tomas. “He is in a delicate condition and the prognosis is reserved,” added the health ministry, which said the bullet went straight through Garcia’s head. The attempted arrest took place at 6:30 a.m. (1130 GMT) at Garcia’s home in the posh Miraflores neighborhood of Lima. “This morning there was a regrettable accident: the president took the decision to shoot himself,” Erasmo Reyna, Garcia’s lawyer, told reporters outside the hospital. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsGarcia, who was president from 1985-90 and again from 2006-11, is suspected of having taken bribes from Brazilian construction giant Odebrecht in return for large-scale public works contracts. In November he sought refuge in the Uruguayan Embassy and applied for asylum but he left the next month after it was denied. He is one of four Peruvian ex-presidents embroiled in various corruption scandals alongside Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, Ollanta Humala and Alejandro Toledo. Odebrecht has admitted to paying 29 million in bribes to Peruvian officials over three administrations. Some of those payments were allegedly made during Garcia’s second term in office to secure a contract to build the Lima metro. Peruvian press reports also claim Garcia received a 100,000 payment from an illicit Odebrecht fund for giving a speech to Brazilian business leaders in Sao Paulo in May 2012.last_img read more

French TV Channel TF1 Highlights Beauty of Fez Old City

Rabat – The French television channel TF1 aired a six-minute segment on Morocco’s cultural capital of Fez, called “A Weekend in Fes: Exploring the Largest Medina in the World,” on Saturday, April 27.Presented by Audrey Crespo-Mara and narrated by Pierre Gallaccio, the segment takes viewers on a journey into the heart of the city, navigating its narrow maze-like alleyways and lively souks.Read also: King Mohammed VI Launches Construction of Jewish Culture Museum, Part of Fez Medina 2018-2023 VisionRecently renovated under King Mohammed VI, the northeastern city of Fez, which was Morocco’s capital until 1912, charms visitors from all around the world. The program tells visitors to Fez to “sharpen all your senses to soak up the atmosphere” of the city with “sounds of metal clangs forged, the colors, and the scents that will take you back in time.”Besides the babouch slipper market and ancient leather tanneries, the program made stops at several cultural and historical landmarks of the city. At the Bab Boujloud gate, Gallaccio says the Fez medina (old city) has “9,600 alleyways,” making it a “real labyrinth … and a compass for lost wanderers trying to work their way through the crowded streets of the medina.”Fez’s medina is home to the world’s oldest currently operating modern university of Al Quaraouiyine, founded by Fatima Al Fihriyya in 859, as recognized both by UNESCO and Guinness World Records. The narrow streets of the medina make no room for vehicles, making mules, donkeys, motorcycles, and bicycles the only viable means of non-pedestrian transport. read more

Bank of Canada holds interest rate warns of drag from global trade

OTTAWA — The Bank of Canada is leaving its key interest rate unchanged in an announcement that balances domestic economic improvements with an expanding global slowdown caused by trade conflicts.The decision keeps the interest rate at 1.75 per cent for a sixth-straight meeting — and governor Stephen Poloz appears to be in no rush to make a move even as policy-makers in the U.S. and Europe signal they may introduce cuts.The central bank is also releasing updated projections for Canada that predict annualized economic growth this year of 1.3 per cent, up slightly from its April forecast of 1.2 per cent, and an expansion of 1.9 per cent in 2020, down from its previous call of 2.1 per cent.Canada has had a stronger-than-expected rebound from a slowdown that nearly brought the economy to halt in late 2018 and early of 2019.In a statement, the bank says the unexpectedly robust bounce back in the second quarter was due to temporary factors, such as a recovery from weather-related weaknesses and a boost in oil production.The bank is now projecting second-quarter growth at an annual pace of 2.3 per cent, up from its April call of 1.3 per cent.The Canadian Press read more

UNs forum on sustainability to tackle key issues of human wellbeing Annan

“The World Summit on Sustainable Development is not, as some people think, simply another conference on the global environment,” Mr. Annan stressed, delivering a lecture at the London School of Economics and Political Science. “The whole idea of sustainable development, reflected in the Rio Earth Summit 10 years ago, is that environment and development are inextricably linked.”The progress achieved in Johannesburg — building on a World Trade Organization meeting in Doha, Qatar, last November and next month’s International Conference on Financing for Development set for Monterrey, Mexico — would be crucial to achieving the goals set by the UN Millennium Assembly, he said. Held in 2000, that largest-ever gathering of world leaders set key international targets, including halving extreme poverty across the globe by 2015.“Sustainable development may be the new conventional wisdom, but many people have still not grasped its meaning,” said Mr. Annan. “It is a life-or-death issue for millions upon millions of people, and potentially the whole human race,” he warned.In an effort to “put some human faces” on the matter, the Secretary-General noted that without sustainable development, an African women might have to search farther for fuel and water, while one of her relatives might be pushed from the countryside to an urban slum in order to find work. A man with a car and a job in a rapidly growing East Asian city who suffered from a respiratory disease could be saving money to migrate to Europe or North America, without realizing that the environment there would be no better. “The more ‘development’ follows this pattern, the less sustainable it is going to be in any part of the world,” said the Secretary-General, adding that further examples might be drawn from “any of us in this room.”“We lead immensely privileged lives compared to the vast majority of human beings, but we do so by consuming more than our share of the earth’s resources,” he observed. “Our way of life has to change, but how, and how fast?” The Johannesburg meeting must answer that question, he stressed. “Will these three conferences – Doha, Monterrey, Johannesburg – find a place in the history books? It depends on us,” said the Secretary-General. read more

City council to discuss spending taxes in next meeting

City spending, and how it affects Calgarians’ taxes, will be the topic of discussion at Monday’s city council meeting. Mayor Naheed Nenshi says a spending freeze could happen, but would mean cuts to city services. “When I talk to citizens and I say we’re talking about the difference between zero dollars a month and four dollars a month at the maximum, most people say to me, ‘four bucks a month? So that the park actually is maintained? I can probably live with that.’”“So, that’s the decision council will have to make,” he said. “A freeze is very, very possible, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that, but we just have to be honest with people with what we’re doing in order to get there.”He says, every year but one since he’s been in office, city spending has increased at a rate lower than the inflation rate. “If you really want to cut services, you have to be honest about that,” he said. “You have to really say to people, ‘Alright. We’re going to mow the lawns less often. We’re going to clear the roads less often, or it’ll take longer to do springtime road cleanup,’ and see if people are agreeable to that.”He adds, Calgarians have it pretty good right now. “Our citizen satisfaction surveys are the envy of any city in the country,” he said. “We get regularly over 90 per cent satisfaction with city services, and we do that for the lowest property taxes in the country. So yeah, people are getting a great value.” City council to discuss spending, taxes in next meeting by 660 NEWS Staff Posted Jun 26, 2016 10:54 am MDT Last Updated Jun 26, 2016 at 10:56 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Sexton ignores increasing levels of scrutiny as he returns to lead Leinster

first_img Share Tweet Email By Ryan Bailey Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Ryan Bailey reports from the Aviva StadiumIT MUST HAVE been a long five weeks for Johnny Sexton, as further injury frustrations granted him unwanted time to deliberate a forgettable Six Nations campaign, while his lay-off only added to the conversations about the out-half’s form and fitness. But, back to full fitness and ready to lead Leinster into European battle again, it came as no surprise to see Sexton arrive ahead of his team-mates for this afternoon’s captain’s run at the Aviva Stadium. He is straining at the leash to get out there again.     Sexton during Saturday’s captain’s run. Source: Oisin Keniry/INPHOIncredibly, Sexton has not played for his province in 2019, with his last appearance in blue coming at Thomond Park over Christmas, and while he is pitched straight back in for a Heineken Champions Cup semi-final, the 33-year-old has shown in the past his ability to hit the ground running.Sexton’s return to fitness is a timely boost for Leo Cullen’s side as they put their European crown on the line against fellow four-time winners Toulouse tomorrow afternoon, but after missing the quarter-final win over Ulster, all eyes will be on the World Player of the Year.The intense level of scrutiny is something Sexton has become used to, and with age has come a greater appreciation that criticism is par for the course when you’re a player of his world-class quality and of such importance for both club and country.But as much as he tries to ignore the outside noise and focus on the advice given to him by those in the know, it’s difficult to completely shut out the constant chatter about his performances.“It has probably gone to a new level maybe,” he says of the criticism. “But it is something that I have gotten used to. I have been used to it since I have been in school.“It’s not something I pay too much attention to. I know the facts. I know what actually happened. I am lucky that I am surrounded by coaches that know the game really, really well. I listen to their advice and I try to ignore as much of the noise as I can.“It is hard to because people want to come up to you in the street and ask you if you are okay. You know it’s bad when that’s happening.“It’s something that you get used to with experience. I’m looking forward to getting out there tomorrow.”Sexton, speaking at this afternoon’s pre-match press conference, was quick to dismiss the notion that the added pressure of being named World Player of the Year for his outstanding performances in 2018 has weighed heavy. Sexton during today’s press conference. Source: Oisin Keniry/INPHO“No, not at all,” he said. “I said it at the time, that is people’s opinion in that moment in time. Obviously 2018 was a special year but I remember sitting at the table before the awards. My wife told me I was very relaxed about it and I said ‘If I win it, it’s a stick to beat me with, if I don’t win it, I don’t mind.’“It’s people’s opinion. I would much rather win a trophy because you guys can’t sit there and say ‘Leinster haven’t won four stars, four European Cups.’“But we have and you can’t take that away. But you can argue about whether someone is playing well or someone is not playing well.“You can all have your opinions about that but you can’t take away trophies and that is why I love being here and trying to win competitions because that doesn’t get taken away from you.”After shaking off that quad issue and been carefully managed by Leinster over the last three weeks, Sexton is fit and firing for the business end of the season and this week spent time working with kicking coach Dave Alfred in anticipation of his return.“I’ve worked with him since I was 22,” Sexton added. “He always comes over and when he is available I always take him, because he is brilliant. He tries to make himself available for these type of games. Hopefully, I get to keep working with him for the foreseeable future.“I am happy to have got the issues sorted out with my leg.”Gavan Casey and Murray Kinsella are joined by Andy Dunne to preview the Champions Cup semi-finals and all the week’s news on the latest episode of The42 Rugby Weekly: 35 Comments Sexton ignores increasing levels of scrutiny as he returns to lead Leinster into battle ‘I have been used to it since I have been in school.

Un nouveau colorant plus brillant pour mieux explorer le cerveau

first_imgUn nouveau colorant plus brillant pour mieux explorer le cerveauUne équipe de chercheurs vient de synthétiser un nouveau colorant bien plus puissant que ceux actuellement employés. Il permet d’explorer et d’observer le cerveau beaucoup plus en détail.L’observation du cerveau pourrait franchir un pas supplémentaire grâce à la création d’une équipe de chercheurs du Laboratoire de chimie du CNRS (Lyon), en collaboration avec l’Institut des neurosciences de l’Inserm (Grenoble) et le Laboratoire Chimie et interdisciplinarité (Nantes). Ces scientifiques ont en effet réussi à mettre au point un composant très particulier appelé chromophore Lem-PHEA. Il s’agit en fait d’un colorant bien plus puissant que tous les colorants fluorescents jusqu’ici employés pour obtenir une image en 3D du réseau sanguin du cerveau. Comme le souligne l’étude publiée dans la revue Chemical Science, ce nouveau colorant et son impressionnante propriété permet ainsi de fournir des images plus contrastées et d’une précision encore jamais atteinte de ce qui se passe dans l’organisme. En effet, le Lem-PHEA réunit les qualités indispensables à un bon colorant : luminescence dans le proche infrarouge, solubilité dans les milieux biologiques, faible coût et non toxicité, mais en plus il est facilement synthétisé et il possède une fluorescence très largement supérieure aux colorants classiques. Des premiers résultats prometteurs À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Il permet donc d’obtenir des images précises au micromètre contrairement aux images IRM habituelles qui ont une résolution limitée à quelques millimètres. Testé sur une souris, le colorant, une fois injecté, a révélé les détails du système vasculaire de cet animal avec une incroyable précision, rapporte un communiqué du CNRS. Les images obtenues étaient par ailleurs plus contrastées. Suite à l’observation, le Lem-PHEA a été facilement éliminé par les reins et aucun résidu toxique n’a été retrouvé dans le foie de la souris. Ces résultats ouvrent ainsi d’importantes perspectives pour mieux observer le cerveau et comprendre son fonctionnement, qu’il soit sain ou malade, concluent les scientifiques.(crédits photo :  B. van der Sanden et F.

Flying cars coming in 5 years Intel drone chief says

first_img Drones Elon Musk Intel Uber Comments Uber reveals more about its flying taxi ambitions Intel drone leader Anil Nanduri Stephen Shankland/CNET Drones are useful today for real estate photos and gas pipeline inspections. They could be useful tomorrow for home security and package delivery. But in a half decade, they could well shuttle you to work over the heads of drivers stuck in traffic.That’s what Anil Nanduri, general manager of Intel’s drone group, expects. Drone innovation combined with people paying their way out of gridlock will mean flying cars will transform from exotic to accepted in the next few years.Some companies agree, perhaps most notably Ehang and Uber, which wants to launch air taxis by 2023. But there are plenty of safety, engineering and social challenges. Not to mention the fact that Elon Musk — the CEO of Tesla, SpaceX and the Boring Company, who has a knack for figuring out what’s just within our technological reach — thinks we’re better off putting cars in underground tunnels.Nanduri’s job is closer to today’s tech. He’s trying to automate drone operations such as inspecting bridges for cracks or choreographing constellations of drones in a kind of digital fireworks. The latter is in part a publicity stunt, most recently on display at Super Bowl 53, but it’s more than that. Smoothly coordinating 2,000 drones that are flying up to 8 meters per second is also a dress rehearsal for tomorrow’s more complicated airspace.Nanduri sat down with CNET’s Stephen Shankland for an exclusive interview at the All About Autonomy 2019 conference. The following is an edited transcript.Q: Let’s look five years in the future. Do you think we’re going to have flying cars?Nanduri: There will definitely be flights with flying cars in five years. At scale? Probably not. But definitely you’ll see them starting to be up in the sky. The most amazing thing about autonomous air traffic is that airspace solves the three-dimensional challenge that the ground traffic is faced with. 13 Share your voice What about 10 years? Will it be more common?Nanduri: In 10 years, you’ll start to see air taxis. It’s our job to make it happen.A business guy can run the economics and see how the cost models work out at the ecosystem level. When you see that, you know it’s going to happen. And you have these huge pain points. Traffic is only getting more and more congested, and people want instant gratification — they want everything delivered.Now, how do you put it all together and get the regulations and get the compliance? Once you see that one instance of it working, then you’ll see it rapidly roll out.I worry about that one instance where you see it not working. People are famous for making decisions based on avoiding negative outcomes.Nanduri: It’s absolutely something the industry should be cognizant of. A recent example is what happened at the Gatwick Airport [when a drone shut down air traffic]. We got to acknowledge it, embrace it. And we need to know that technology can solve it. It slows it down, but because the economics and the pain points are there, it will eventually cross that barrier.Intel Shooting Star lantern-equipped droneOne of the 150 Intel Shooting Star lantern-equipped drones used in Super Bowl 53’s half time show. Stephen Shankland/CNET When an ordinary car has a problem at 60 mph or 30 mph, it’s still stuck to the ground. With flying cars you have this problem called gravity. Is that something you can overcome?Nanduri: You have 40,000 people per year who die in car accidents. Yet people accept it, and they drive. When you have two hours stuck in traffic and you can shorten that, especially in commuting, you have to adapt. If you go today to Bangalore or Beijing, it’s so congested, you are literally in a parking lot.Once you see [flying cars], the benefit far overrides the hurdles. If I give you two hours back, you get to watch that movie or spend more time with your family.They have to be safe. There are always early adopters willing to take bigger risks. But as time progresses, more and more people will get comfortable.Three dimensions gets you a lot more room than being confined to the surface of the Earth. Elon Musk [head of Tesla, SpaceX and the Boring Company] wants to build tunnels under Los Angeles and Las Vegas. What do you think of tunnels for cars?Nanduri: It’s very simple. It’s a cost. Putting it into the sky is lot less expensive than having to touch physical infrastructure.The same thing goes with the cost of deploying fiber versus wireless communication. That’s why 5g is so much more exciting. I can get, you know, the huge bandwidth without the expensive infrastructure costs of laying out cables.Where will we see the first use of passenger drones? The worst gridlock is in urban areas already crowded with news helicopters, skyscrapers and maybe delivery drones.Nanduri: It’ll come from different avenues. There are always gonna be the entrepreneurs and high-net-worth people who can showcase the new technology.I think there will be cargo drones moving supplies and equipment — that will drive a lot of the innovation. You may be not even surprised if the initial versions of these will have a pilot in there, just to give that sense of safety. It will evolve from being manned to eventually becoming unmanned.You get a half an hour of battery life out of little camera drones weighing 100 grams. What about when it’s 100 kilograms of human payload?Nanduri: You hit on the biggest challenge. If you look at the physics of a multirotor system, no matter what size and scale, you’re going to have 30 to 45 minutes of battery life with existing battery technology. With a larger drone, you can put more battery in it, but you’re carrying more weight. That’s why people are looking at hybrid EVTOL [electric vertical takeoff and landing] systems. They can take advantage of the aerodynamics of tilt-rotor designs. Once you are in flight, you’re more like a traditional aircraft, but then you’re able to take off and land vertically. That has its own challenges, so you see a lot of innovation to extend your flight time.Intel is hoping others will adopt its scale for drone autonomy, similar to one already used to grade self-driving car abilities.Intel is hoping others will adopt its scale for drone autonomy, similar to one already used to grade self-driving car abilities. Intel Even little tiny quadcopters can get pretty noisy. If you’re talking about something big enough to lift a human being or big Amazon packages, with multiple flights a day to your neighbors’ houses, that really adds up.Nanduri: It’s all social acceptance and social perception that’s going to drive it. It’s more important as they come into the urban, high-density areas. But is it really the loudness? You’ll be surprised — sometimes it’s the frequency of the sound.Does “social acceptance” translate to “better get used to it”?Nanduri: No! There is technology that will help make them quieter. If it’s a frequency problem, it’s how the rotors are designed that gives you the changes in the frequency tones. There’s research going on as to how I can make them more human friendly. These things become barriers to adoption. But at end of the day, the social acceptance comes down to value. If people see value, then they’re willing to deal with some of the irritating aspects that come as part of that.Will we have landing pads at our houses and apartments and put giant QR codes on our roofs to help drones navigate to our homes?Nanduri: It could be a mat with a QR code on it. But to be more seamless, depth-sensing sensors will map the environment. They’ll enable the systems to get very smart, to know even if there’s a pet in the backyard so they know not to land. The takeoff and landing elements and the safety around that are still things we’re learning. When do I land? Is it safe to drop a package? Do I land and then someone picks it up?In the old days, we didn’t have mailboxes, and now we do. Will everybody have drone mailboxes?Nanduri: It’s going to vary. You could say, I’m having a picnic in the park and I want my pizza delivered here. There’s not going to be an automated spot, but the system should be capable of knowing where is it safe and get it to me. You don’t have to be constrained to a location to get what you need.First published March 10, 2019, at 5 a.m. PTUpdate, March 12, 12:03 a.m. PT: Updates headline and description of drone fireworks program.

South Africa shines as favourite for MICE

first_imgTourism Minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk told delegates at the current Meetings Africa expo in Sandton that South Africa was fast becoming one of the world’s favourite destinations for MICE, already securing over 200 international conferences over the next five years. With an economic boost of approximately R1.6 billion and attracting more than 300 000 delegates to the country, Mr Van Schalkwyk said South Africa will encourage business travellers to stay longer, explore the country’s tourist offerings and to later return with their families.The largest business-to-business tourism exhibition in Africa, Meetings Africa hosts more than 200 international buyers from all over the world, including the USA, Australia, United Kingdom, Kenya, China, Germany, Netherlands, Brazil and Nigeria.  Over the course of three days they will engage with the South African industry in an effort to grow business tourism arrivals.

Supreme Court Protects Collectors of Stale Debt

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Debt Fair Debt COlelctions Act Supreme Court 2017-05-15 Seth Welborn May 15, 2017 651 Views Sharecenter_img Supreme Court Protects Collectors of Stale Debt In a decision on Monday, the Supreme Court ruled that under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), debt collectors that knowingly pursue stale debt in bankruptcy proceedings do not run the risk of facing potential consumer protection lawsuits, Law360 reports.The ruling came after the high court voted 5-3 to overturn an Eleventh Circuit decision which had found Midland Funding LLC, a purchaser of unpaid debt, potentially liable under the FDCPA. According to the Supreme Court, Midland Fund is no longer liable under the Act for attempting to collect on bankruptcy on decade-old credit card debt, which Law360 notes had become time barred after six years.Justice Stephen G. Breyer stated that the Midland’s attempts to collect on clearly expired claims were not “false, deceptive, or misleading,” and according the Breyer, the firm’s proof of claim falls within the U.S. Bankruptcy Code’s definition of “claim.””The law has long treated unenforceability of a claim (due to the expiration of the limitations period) as an affirmative defense,” Breyer wrote. “And we see nothing misleading or deceptive in the filing of a proof of claim that, in effect, follows the code’s similar system.”In March 2014, plaintiff Aleida Johnson filed for Chapter 13 protection, but Midland Funding filed a proof of claim for a payment of $1,879 in unpaid credit card debt during Johnson’s bankruptcy. According to Johnson, the last credit card transaction on the account had occurred in May 2003, and in Alabama where the claim occurred, the statute of limitations for collecting on overdue debt is six years.While a federal judge had originally dismissed the claims on the grounds that the Bankruptcy code authorizes all creditors to file proof of claims at any time, the Eleventh Circuit stepped in to say that the Bankruptcy Code and FDCPA go hand-in-hand.The Supreme Court majority voted to repeal the Eleventh Circuits decision, though the three dissenting, Justices Sonia Sotomayor, joined by Justices Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, called Midland’s actions in collecting stale debt “unfair” and “unconscionable .”“It is said that the law should not be a trap for the unwary,” they said in their dissent. “Today’s decision sets just such a trap.”last_img read more

the cooperative’s annual membership meeting in Bismarck this week member owners will participate in a Strategic Direction Meeting with two goals in mind: help shape a federal carbon emissions reduction plan that is friendly to coal and come up with a way to compete with renewables in the cooperative’s new marketplaceBasin Electric CEO Paul Sukut said he has had the chance to meet with US Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt on three occasions He and other power producers have told the agency the same thing He said Basin and major producers such as Duke Energy and Xcel Energy agree repealing CPP is not enough A new plan must be made — one that will be possible for coal to meetIn the meantime Sukut said it is also important that his organization help demonstrate that Basin’s carbon footprint can be reducedBasin Electric is a two-year member of the Southwest Power Pool regional transmission organization a membership that allows the cooperative to sell excess energy produced into the market and buy when there are production shortagesOn that market there are 790 generating units according to SPP CEO Nick Brown Of those natural gas makes up 408 percent of capacity coal makes up 31 percent and wind makes up just under 20 percentUnlike coal-fired power in many other parts of the country North Dakota’s and Basin’s power plants are fed by coal mines located right at their doorsteps according to Sukut This makes North Dakota lignite competitive with natural gas but zero-cost wind still outstrips coalIn April for example Basin brought down one of its plants and kept it down longer than expected because it was cheaper to buy wind energy on the market than it was to produce its own powerTo adapt the power cooperative’s members are talking operational changes potentially following Great River Energy Power Cooperative’s example in a process called cyclingCycling allows large coal-fired power plants which were designed to run at full capacity at all times and are difficult to fire up in a hurry to fluctuate between full capacity to a greatly reduced rate when the wind is blowing"We’ve already found ways to lower our minimums" Sukut saidBasin is able to compete on the SPP market now but longer term it will be difficult and the organization must look for solutions he said As for its current finances an increase in power generation has helped put Basin Electric on stronger financial footing after a tough 2016Sukut said a "perfect storm" of low natural gas prices that lessened the competitiveness of Dakota Gasification Company’s synthetic natural gas and byproducts and mild weather in 2016 which reduced customers’ power needs led to a nearly 12 percent rate increase for Basin customers last year"We’re in good shape now" Sukut saidHot summer weather helped put margins back on track record margins in some cases Sukut saidIn order to prevent itself from getting into a similar situation in the future the power cooperative has begun a Margin Stabilization PlanSukut said this will work somewhat like a savings account putting money aside to offset rate increases in tough timesSukut said DGC is still experiencing some financial stress but the cooperative is hopeful a restructuring and the pending opening of its new urea fertilizer facility will helpThe cooperative is developing a marketing plan
