Five stories in the news for Thursday, August 1———CANADA NOT CONSULTED ABOUT U.S. DRUG PLANFederal officials say Ottawa was not consulted in advance about the details of a Trump administration proposal announced Wednesday aimed at allowing American patients and consumers to legally import cheaper prescription drugs from Canada. The office of Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor says while it remains in regular contact with counterparts from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services about their “mutual interest” in fostering lower drug prices, details of the surprise announcement by Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar were not discussed beforehand. Azar, a former drug industry executive, said U.S. patients will be able to import medications safely and effectively with oversight from the Food and Drug Administration under a scheme that prompted many defenders of Canada’s drug supply to sound the alarm.———ADVOCATES SAY MANHUNT SHOWS RESOURCES FOR MMIW CASESSome advocates say there is a stark contrast to the resources deployed in the search for two British Columbia homicide suspects and what happens when an Indigenous woman goes missing or is murdered. Sheila North, former grand chief for northern Manitoba, says it’s been difficult for the families of these women to see the ongoing manhunt because in many cases they had to fund and organize searches for their loved ones on their own. R-C-M-P have used planes, helicopters, drones and lots of officers to search for Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod. They are charged with second-degree murder in the killing of a Vancouver man and are also suspects in the death of a couple. North says it’s important to catch these two men, but says it shows police could put more effort into the cases of Indigenous women.———MAN CONVICTED DESPITE ‘RAPE SHIELD’ PROBLEMSA man who argued misapplication of Canada’s rape shield law had unfairly hamstrung his defence had his conviction restored on Wednesday even though the country’s top court found errors in how judges had applied the provisions. In a 5-2 ruling, the Supreme Court of Canada decided the accused had been able to defend himself properly at trial given the questions he was allowed to ask the complainant. The case arose in the early hours of Canada Day in 2013 during a family camping trip. The 15-year-old complainant maintained her cousin R.V., then 20, sexually assaulted her in the washroom. He denied any sexual contact with her. The prosecution relied heavily on the fact that the teen, who said she was a virgin at the time of the assault, became pregnant around that time. Because she had terminated her pregnancy and the fetus was destroyed, no DNA evidence was available to prove paternity.———SYSTEMIC FAILURES ALLOWED WETTLAUFER’S CRIMESSystemic failures in long-term care allowed Canada’s “first known health-care serial killer” to murder eight elderly patients without raising suspicion, a public inquiry said Wednesday, calling for fundamental changes to prevent such tragedies in the future. In a report capping a two-year probe of nurse Elizabeth Wettlaufer’s case, the Ontario inquiry said those failures stem in part from a lack of awareness on the risk of staff members deliberately hurting patients. Wettlaufer is serving a life sentence after pleading guilty in 2017 to killing eight patients with insulin overdoses and attempting to kill four others. She was arrested after confessing to mental health workers and police. She has said she chose insulin for her crimes because it wasn’t tracked where she worked.———PM VISITS ARCTIC TO HIGHLIGHT CLIMATE POLICYPrime Minister Justin Trudeau is in Canada’s Far North to witness some of the more dramatic effects of climate change, part of an effort highlight his Liberal government’s record on climate action ahead of the federal election. Trudeau plans to announce the creation of a new marine protected area near Arctic Bay — an Inuit hamlet on the northwest corner of Baffin Island. Melting sea ice and increased shipping traffic have posed increased threats to many important local species, including sea birds, narwhals and bowhead whales. Trudeau will use the backdrop of shifting Arctic terrain and endangered sea life to cast himself and his Liberal party as best-placed to serve as stewards of the environment.———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— Federal Labour Minister Patty Hajdu meets with Luisa Maria Alcalde, Mexico’s Secretary of Labour and Social Welfare, to discuss implementation of the new North America free trade deal.— Organized Crime Reduction Minister Bill Blair and New Brunswick Public Safety Minister Carl Urquhart take part in a funding announcement under the Initiative to Take Action Against Gun and Gang Violence.— St. Louis Blues goalie Jake Allen brings Stanley Cup to his home town of Fredericton.— Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan makes an announcement regarding investments in Reserve infrastructure across Canada.— Final arguments are expected in the first-degree murder trial of Oscar Arfmann.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on Tuesday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take immediate diplomatic measures with the authorities in Sri Lanka and arrange for an early release of the 135 fishing boats and 11 fishermen currently in neighbouring island nation’s custody, the Deccan Chronicle reported.In a letter to Modi, Palaniswami said that 135 fishing boats belonging to fishermen from Tamil Nadu, of which 61 were apprehended in 2015, 53 were apprehended in 2016 and 21 were apprehended in 2017, continue to remain impounded in Sri Lankan custody. Palaniswami said that Sri Lankan Government is following a deft strategy of not releasing the fishing boats thereby pushing our fishermen into a poverty stricken state, depriving them of their only means of livelihood. “I request you to kindly take up this issue urgently with the concerned authorities in Sri Lanka and arrange for an early release of the 135 fishing boats and 11 fishermen currently in Sri Lankan custody”, the chief minister said. (Colombo Gazette) “It has been pointed out many times that these fishing boats are perilously berthed and are in imminent threat of irreparable damage due to long periods of disuse and the onslaught of the monsoon”, he said adding hopes of release arose when the Government of Sri Lanka had committed to considering the release of the boats, which has rapidly dissipated as no decision has been taken so far in this regard.
According to a statement issued by his spokesperson, Mr. Ban also lauded Sierra Leone’s institutions for carrying out recently the first presidential, parliamentary, local council and mayoral elections run entirely but he Government on a peaceful manner, saying that this demonstrates the people’s strong commitment to consolidating democracy and development.For 11 years, Sierra Leone was torn by a civil war after the rebel Revolutionary United Front intervened in an attempt to overthrow the country’s then-President Joseph Momoh. The conflict, which lasted from 1991 to 2002, was often punctuated by acts of extreme brutality as marauding bands of armed youths terrorized the countryside, conscripting child soldiers and used the amputation of limbs as an intimidation method against civilians.“The Secretary-General emphasizes the importance of all Sierra Leoneans working together in the period ahead,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson added in the statement. “In that regard, the Secretary-General welcomes President Koroma’s pledge to reach out to all Sierra Leoneans and to promote national reconciliation and unity.”The 17 November elections were the country’s third since the end of its civil war, and the second since the withdrawal of the peacekeeping operation known as the UN Mission in Sierra Leone (UNAMSIL) in December 2005. That mission was replaced by various other UN offices, most recently the UN Integrated Peacebuilding Office (UNIPSIL), which focuses on political and development activities.Mr. Ban also stressed the responsibility of the country’s political leaders to maintain the atmosphere of calm that prevailed during the election process, and urged all sides to address any outstanding grievances peacefully through established national mechanisms and institutions.“The Secretary-General is confident that the strong partnership between the United Nations and Sierra Leone will continue in the best interest of the people of Sierra Leone,” the statement added.
At the moment, if you want a solid state drive in your PC then a SATA III connection is the only real choice you have. But Super Talent has decided to give you another option by producing a new drive that plugs into a PCIe slot.The SSD line is being called CoreStore and comes in MV (Mini PCie) and MP (PCIe) variations. Storage capacities for both types include 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB options.The flash memory used is a new DDR ONFi 2 (Open NAND Flash Interface). ONFi is an industry workgroup comprising 80+ companies working to standardize and simplify the use of flash memory in any and all systems. As it’s an open standard it should work without firmware updates being required in most setups.By using the PCIe and Mini-PCIe connectors Super Talent allows the drives to be used in a range of different systems included embedded, laptops, netbooks, nettops, and all-in-ones, as well as standard PC configurations. It also potentially frees up the hard drive bay in a limited-size system for a second storage option.As for performance, the CoreStore packs some serious speed. Using a Marvell 88NV9143 controller read speeds are clocked at 350MB/s while write speed is as high as 220MB/s. You won’t be waiting long for a system to load using one of these drives.CoreStore will be available to buy in March with prices yet to be announced. To get the drives working at full speed you will require a Gen 2 PCI slot.Read more at the Super Talent press releaseMatthew’s OpinionIf a manufacturer, or individual building his own small system, wants to save on space and weight then the mini-PCI version of CoreStore looks like an ideal solution. It’s offering better performance than a standard hard drive while taking up hardly any space, using less power, and producing less heat and noise.As for the PCI version, if you are short on hard drive bays or SATA connections it’s a nice alternative. The fact they are very fast drives too makes for a compelling product if the price is right.At the moment we don’t know how much the drives cost or how they compares to the more typical SATA SSD drives. They don’t need casing like the SATA drives do, so they should cost less to manufacture. But the use of this new ONFi 2 flash may push the price up.
Curiosity : la Nasa présente son nouveau rover martien en imagesÉtats-Unis – La Nasa a dévoilé son nouveau rover, qui rejoindra Spirit et Opportunity pour explorer la planète Mars. Doté d’une caméra 3D, le robot devrait quitter la Terre en novembre 2011.Lourd de quelque 775 kilos, Curiosity ne fonctionnera pas à l’énergie solaire, contrairement à ses deux prédécesseurs, mais au plutonium 238.

NASA Wins 2 Emmys for Mars Mission, SpaceX Dragon Flight ProgrammingNASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This Weekend Stay on target It’s been a rough year for life on Earth. The Arctic is a staggering 36 degrees hotter than it should be, we’ve had some of the largest storms on record (in part fueled by rising global temperatures), and we’ve hit 400 parts per million global carbon dioxide levels — long considered the point of no return for climate change. You could be forgiven, then, for thinking Earth’s days are numbered. And many of the planets’ top minds agree.While giving a lecture at Oxford last week, Stephen Hawking said that he expects disaster in the next few thousand years.“Although the chance of a disaster to planet Earth in a given year may be quite low,” he said, “it adds up over time, and becomes a near certainty in the next 1,000 or 10,000 years.”Hawking has long believed that humanity needs to become a multi-planet species, suggesting that the rarity of intelligent life and the distinct technological ability we possess gives us a moral obligation to protect ourselves and others from world-ending events. Hawking believes that we should avoid developing AI, proliferating nuclear weapons, and that humanity must start working now to mitigate the potential damage caused by climate change. If left unchecked, Hawking thinks that any number of these developments could potentially destroy life as we know it.“[But] by that time,” Hawking added, “we should have spread out into space, and to other stars, so a disaster on Earth would not mean the end of the human race.”SpaceX tests a reusable rocket in. (Photo: Screenshot via National Geographic)Given the way things are going, it’s hard to argue that he’s an alarmist. With all this and the expectation that President-Elect Trump will fight any efforts to stop climate change tooth and nail, the Earth has some rough years ahead.Even so, Hawking is hopeful. “Our picture of the universe has changed a great deal in the last 50 years, and I am happy if I have made a small contribution,” he said, according to The Independent. “The fact that we humans, who are ourselves mere fundamental particles of nature, have been able to come this close to understanding the laws that govern us and the universe is certainly a triumph.”That scientific progress may well be our salvation, too. With billionaires like Elon Musk inspired to help protect humanity through the progression of tech, Hawking says that looking to the stars and believing in the majesty of the universe and the strength of the human spirit is more important than ever.“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.”

A Vancouver woman whose vehicle crashed into a light pole and split in two has died, police said Tuesday morning.Molly Mayo, 19, was driving a Volkswagen Jetta east on Mill Plain Boulevard when she lost control and hit a light pole around 1:30 a.m. Monday, Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said. Her friend Britt Counts, 18, said she heard about Mayo’s death during work Monday afternoon. “It’s very heartbreaking because Molly was such a kind soul,” Counts said.Counts and Mayo met freshman year during choir at Union High School and graduated in 2012. Mayo was studying at Clark College this quarter. Counts last spoke to Mayo on Saturday. “She always had a smile on her face, always, which is good because she had a beautiful smile,” Counts said.When she heard about the car crash, Counts tried to visit Mayo at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center, but only family was allowed to visit.The passenger in the car, Caylie Nelson, also 19 and a Vancouver resident, was taken to the same hospital and is listed in satisfactory condition in the trauma ward.The crash was reported at 1:41 a.m., and the intersection was closed until about 7:30 a.m. Speed is being considered a factor. Kapp said it is unknown if other factors contributed to the crash.
Rep. Dean Westlake, D-Kotzebue, speaks during a House Floor Session on Feb 3, 2017. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)The Alaska House Majority Coalition is calling for Democratic representative Dean Westlake of Kiana to resign amid sexual harassment allegations.Listen nowThe allegations surfaced after a Wednesday report showed a former Legislative staffer claimed Westlake had harassed her on two different occasions.Since then, according to the Anchorage Daily News, a total of seven women have come forward with sexual harassment allegations against Westlake. In a release from the House Majority, House Speaker Bryce Edgmon said in part, “it is difficult for victims to speak out, especially against elected officials in a position of power and [the House leaders] commend anyone who has been mistreated for coming forward; they are owed justice and respect.”The Alaska Democratic Party echoed similar sentiments about Westlake, stating that the alleged behavior “cannot be tolerated” and that he should resign immediately.The allegations coincide with the Legislature’s plans to revise their existing sexual harassment policies.

Could batting be influenced by higher powers?MICHAEL BRADLEY/AFP/Getty ImagesThose who truly love cricket have always felt a mystical element in the game. Whether it is the tendency of the sport to never let anyone get bigger than it or the major part played by luck, there seems to be some higher power which is often at play.But way back in 1982, a documentary by BBC looking to analyse cricket, especially the arts of batting and bowling, tried to understand the minute body mechanics that lets players succeed in the game. They used a bowling machine and brought in top English batsmen like Allan Lamb and Peter Willy to bat against this machine. Based on the knowledge of human reflexes and the speed at which the ball was travelling, the scientists tried to understand how the batsmen’s reflexes work to play the ball.Shocking resultsBut the results of the test left everyone flummoxed. It turned out, at least in the results of the test, that there is no scientific explanation of how batsmen are able to bat well, and succeed, against a delivery that is not short in length and moves a little.Even accomplished international batsmen like Allan Lamb and Peter Willey seemed clueless while batting against the bowling machine on an artificial pitch with a subtly uneven surface to move the ball. Those who conducted the tests said that for any human being, including a batsmen, at least 1/5th of a second is needed to see something and respond to it with a muscular movement. A ball, bowled at normal pace, would have travelled around 2/3 of the length of the pitch in that time and hence, there is no possibility of a last-minute adjustment. A shorter ball though, does give the batsmen more time.#OnThisDay 1982: Cricket was declared to be scientifically impossible. pic.twitter.com/DOpYRMDAnm— BBC Archive (@BBCArchive) June 9, 2019This video of a 1982 documentary was recently uploaded by BBCYouTube/BBCBut then, how does one explain the phenomenon of, or theory of, batsmen reacting to the length of the ball? When the scientist who was conducting the experiment was asked about his explanation for good batting, which necessarily involves more than just good luck, he said there is no explanation. “The answer is, we just don’t know. We know how bowlers can be great. They have to pitch the ball within 200 milliseconds of the batsmen and get the ball to move a little bit. But as far as we know, the batsman can do nothing about it,” the analyst said. When asked further whether he can explain how batsmen are able to play well, he simply said: “I can’t. It just seems rather mystical to me.”But the science wasn’t able to convince many batsmen. The video clip of a part of this documentary was tweeted by BBC Archives, a twitter page of BBC dedicated to posting clips of old programs broadcasted on the network. It ends with the incomparably outspoken Geoffrey Boycott, then an active batsman, saying, in as sharp a language as today, “This buffoon has come up with this idea that all us batsmen predetermine what sort of shot we are going to play…. That it is absolute rubbish. Almost everybody that can bat and has played fast bowlers at the highest level can tell you that he can’t predetermine anything, else, he would get a smack in the teeth.”Since some batsmen do possess great consistency while others do not, batting can’t just be a matter of luck. So, are good batsmen divinely blessed? Maybe, the term ‘God of Cricket’ applied to Sachin Tendulkar is more than just an epithet.
00:00 /01:02 Al OrtizHundreds of immigrants attended a citizenship ceremony held at the M.O. Campbell Educational Center, located in north Houston, on December 14th. They had different opinions about whether immigration rules and guidelines could become stricter under the Trump Administration.Immigration was a big issue during the presidential campaign and President-elect Donald Trump took a hard stance on it.Some Houston residents who have just completed their naturalization process had different opinions about whether naturalization rules and guidelines could become stricter under the Trump Administration.For Danial Shaikh, a 29 year-old petroleum engineer from Pakistan, as long as citizenship applicants have all the required documents “the process is definitely, I’m sure, not gonna change,” so he thinks it will not make a difference who is in the White House.Shaikh spoke to Houston Public Media just a few minutes before being naturalized at a citizenship ceremony held in a north Houston arena on Wednesday.Antonia Romero immigrated to the United States from El Salvador when she was 13 years-old and had a different take than Shaikh.“It does make difference becoming a citizen while Obama is still on…, you know, in the White House because things might get a little tougher for the people in the future that are applying to become citizens,” Romero, who is now 26 years-old and studying to be a nurse, stated while attending the ceremony, also briefly before taking the oath of citizenship.Romero said she thinks the citizenship process might become longer and require more paperwork under the Trump Administration.Ming Cheng, a 43 year-old engineer from China that has lived in America for the past 16 years, noted he puts his faith in the Constitution.In regards to immigration processes, Ming commented “it really doesn’t matter” who is the President.He added the rule of law gives him peace of mind.

(Photo by Wade Payne/Invision/AP, File) Chris Stapleton leads ACM nominations, Reba returns as host NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Chris Stapleton, who released two top-selling albums last year, leads the Academy of Country Music Awards with eight nominations, including his first entertainer of the year nomination.Reba McEntire announced the nominations Thursday on “CBS This Morning” as well as her return as host for a record 15th year. The show will air April 15 from Las Vegas on CBS.Thomas Rhett earned six nominations, Keith Urban had five nominations, and songwriter and producer Shane McAnally had five nods. Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris had four nominations each. The top category of entertainer of the year was an all-male line-up including Stapleton, Urban, Jason Aldean, Garth Brooks and Luke Bryan.McEntire, who recently took on the role as the first female Colonel Sanders for KFC advertisements, has hosted the awards show more than anyone, dating back to 1986. She has co-hosted the show with Hank Williams Jr., Alan Jackson and Blake Shelton, and hosted solo for several years. McEntire is also nominated for female vocalist of the year.Stapleton is nominated twice as an artist and producer for album of the year for his “From A Room: Volume 1” and single record of the year for “Broken Halos.” He’s also nominated as artist and songwriter in the song of the year category for “Whiskey and You.” He is also nominated for male vocalist of the year.Rhett’s nominations include album of the year for “Life Changes” and male vocalist of the year, which he won last year. He is also nominated for vocal event of the year with Morris for their duet “Craving You” and music video of the year.Rhett, who has two daughters with his wife Lauren including his youngest Ada who was born last year, woke up to a flurry of text messages Thursday, but otherwise it was a typical morning for the family.“I got Ada out of her bed and told Lauren that I had six nominations and she said ‘Congrats babe’ and then we went and changed a diaper,” Rhett said.Rhett said he was surprised to have won male vocalist last year, so he was grateful to see his name in the category again this year, alongside Aldean, Stapleton, Urban and Chris Young.“I have been off the road since November, just trying to take a break and figure out this whole dad thing,” Rhett said. “So there was a time there I was like, ‘I think the world is just forgetting who I am.’ So to have these nominations was a nice surprise during an off-season for me.”Urban earned nominations in the categories of male vocalist, song of the year for his song “Female” and vocal event of the year.Lambert, a perennial favourite at the ACMs, is the current record holder for most consecutive wins in the female vocalist of the year category and is currently tied with Brooks and Dunn as artists with the most awards in ACM history with 29 wins each. Lambert is nominated in female vocalist, song of the year and video of the year categories.Morris is nominated for female vocalist and is nominated twice in the vocal event of the year category, once with Rhett and another for a duet with Vince Gill called “Dear Hate,” which was released after the mass shooting at a Las Vegas country music festival last year.Other nominees for female vocalist include Kelsea Ballerini and Carrie Underwood, who is also nominated for vocal event with Urban for their song “The Fighter.”Sam Hunt, Little Big Town and Midland all have three nominations each. First time nominees this year include Midland, LANCO, High Valley, Runaway June, Danielle Bradbery, Carly Pearce, Luke Combs, Devin Dawson and Russell Dickerson.Also included in the album of the year category, Little Big Town earned a nomination for “Breaker,” Jon Pardi got a nod for “California Sunrise” and Old Dominion scored a nomination for their second album, “Happy Endings.”In the song of the year category, only four nominees were selected instead of five. Those include Hunt’s big smash “Body Like a Back Road,” which broke the record for the most weeks atop the Billboard Hot Country chart, Lambert’s “Tin Man” and “Female” by Urban. Stapleton’s “Whiskey and You” was a surprise inclusion because it was an album cut from his 2015 “Traveller” record.In the single record of the year category, nominees include Stapleton for “Broken Halos,” Little Big Town’s “Better Man,” ”Body Like a Back Road,” ”Drinkin’ Problem” by Midland and “I’ll Name the Dogs,” by Blake Shelton.___For full coverage of awards season, visit: https://apnews.com/tag/AwardsSeason
