Transport minister orders new fatigue rules amidst oilbyrail rampup

first_imgOTTAWA — Transport Minister Marc Garneau is ordering railway companies to update rules to address employee fatigue.The minister says requirements on work-rest periods for rail employees, introduced in 2002 with mainly minor changes since then, should reflect the latest science and fatigue management practices.Calling for “changes now,” Garneau says the new rules should address issues such as shift length, minimum rest periods and advance notice for work schedules.The order comes amidst an ongoing ramp-up in crude oil transport by rail and follows Alberta Premier Rachel Notley’s pledge to buy new oil tanker cars that could eventually move an additional 120,000 barrels a day in response to a lack of pipeline capacity.The Transportation Safety Board of Canada has cited sleep-related fatigue as a contributing factor in 19 major freight train accidents since 1994, including the Lac-Megantic tragedy in July 2013 when an oil train explosion killed 47 people. Since then, the amount of crude shipped by rail has doubled to a record 269,829 barrels a day in September 2018.The railways, in consultation with unions, must submit rules to Transport Canada by May 19 for approval by the end of June.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Marée noire un nouveau couvercle un puits supplémentaire des cheveux et des

first_imgMarée noire : un nouveau couvercle, un puits supplémentaire, des cheveux et des débris pour enrayer la menaceÉtats-Unis – Le matériel permettant d’injecter de la boue et du ciment dans la valve de sécurité du principal puits de pétrole déversant quotidiennement 800.000 litres de brut dans le golfe du Mexique devrait être acheminé par bateau très prochainement. Toutefois, cette opération pourrait nécessiter plusieurs semaines avant de porter ses fruits. Le matériel devrait arriver prochainement, malheureusement l’opération de colmatage nécessitera surement plusieurs semaines et d’ici là, 72 millions de litres de pétrole pourraient s’être déversés dans le golfe du Mexique. La solution consistant à forer un autre puits pourrait, elle, être dramatique et multiplier par douze la quantité de pétrole déversée quotidiennement dans l’océan. En attendant, British Petroleum garde donc en tête d’autres possibilités afin de mettre un terme à la marée noire qui sévit actuellement le long des côtes du golfe du Mexique.Parmi les solutions possibles, la pose d’un nouveau dôme de confinement, plus petit que le précédent (1,5 mètre de haut pour 1,2 mètre de diamètre) et donc malheureusement moins efficace. Il devrait arriver aujourd’hui ou demain, suite à l’échec de la première tentative vendredi dernier. Le premier couvercle, mesurant 12 mètres de hauteur et pesant 100 tonnes, avait dû être retiré dès le lendemain de sa mise en place, “des hydrates de méthane, sous forme de cristaux de glace” s’étant formés, obstruant les conduits et empêchant tout pompage du pétrole. L’injection d’eau chaude ou de méthanol pourrait être la solution à ce problème. D’autres ingénieurs proposent de connecter le tuyau duquel s’échappe le pétrole à un plus gros qui l’acheminerait vers un navire. Des produits chimiques dispersants sont également injectés près de la fuite.D’autres méthodes, plus farfelues ont également été énoncées, notamment par Doug Suttles, directeur d’exploitation de BP, qui parle d’une “injection de cochonneries” à très haute pression, comme des morceaux de pneus ou des balles de golf, afin d’arrêter la fuite. Même si cette méthode paraît dérisoire, elle nécessitera deux semaines de travaux.Autre technique originale : l’association Matter of trust entreprend de mettre à la mer des cheveux, poils d’animaux et laines censés absorber le pétrole (voir article).

Mewtwo Strikes Back Remake Is Another Terrifying Pokemon Movie

first_img 2019 is set to be a real trip for Pokemon fans. We recently learned about Pokemon Sword and Shield, the next entries in the core RPG series. Normally a new generation is exciting enough on its own, but this is the first time the main series has appeared on a home console, the Nintendo Switch, so it has the potential to be an even greater leap for the franchise.But even if you don’t keep up with the games you’re still about to experience Pokemon like never before. We also just saw a new reality-distorting trailer for Pokemon: Detective Pikachu, the Ryan Reynolds comedy where Pikachu wears a detective hat and curses at other disturbingly realistic Pokemon in a live-action world.And now we’ve just seen yet another trailer for a new type of terrifying Pokemon film. It’s only March! Check out this teaser for Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution.┏━━━━━━━━━━━┓最強とは何か――┗━━━━━━━━━━━┛7/12(金)ロードショー「ミュウツーの逆襲 EVOLUTION」フル3DCGで描かれた大迫力の最新予告映像を公開。#ミュウツーイヤー#ミュウツーの逆襲 https://t.co/xyIAFoibKv pic.twitter.com/wvP2rrvB9n— ミュウツーの逆襲 EVOLUTION (@pokemon_movie) February 28, 2019As its name implies, Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution is a remake of the original Mewtwo Strikes Back, the very first Pokemon film released 20 years ago. But now instead of the hand-drawn look of the anime, this new movie features the first CGI take on the familiar Pokemon film franchise. While CGI Pokemon are pretty common because of the games, it’s pretty wild seeing Ash and Brock and Misty as these action figure-like 3D models instead of their traditional 2D selves.Still, of all the Pokemon movies to get remade we’re glad it’s this one, still our favorite Pokemon movie. Whenever Pokemon begins to interrogate its own borderline dog fighting premise just a little bit it’s really great. This is why Pokemon Black and White, and its Pokemon-freeing antagonists, are the best games. And it’s why Mewtwo Strikes Back’s message of “fighting your own people is really tragic actually” still hits home.Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution releases in Japanese theaters in July. Hopefully it comes over to America, too. That’s two CGI Mewtwo we can expect to see in theaters this summer.

Hubble Space Telescope Observes Galactic Duo in Space

A very weak bridge of dust, gas, and stars are shown connecting the two galaxies and it was developed when they pulled material out into space across the area dividing them.NASA says interaction is a common event that occurs between most galaxies. A majority of larger galaxies, such as the Milky Way, have interactions that involve much smaller “dwarf” galaxies.

DNA Leader in Address to the Nation Give Bahamas a Clean Slate

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Bahamas, Monday 8th 2017: DNA Leader Branville McCartney is appealing to the nation to see the DNA as the alternative to the ‘same old, same old’. The leader in his televised Sunday address to the nation, told viewers and voters alike that his party was one that identified with the struggles of all Bahamians, as they too lived in the same communities affected by the cost of living. In identifying with those who have suffered at the fate of criminals, McCartney says the old saying of “He who feels, knows it” can be applied to him, as he too along with his family still struggle to find comfort following the loss of his brother.As a result, the leader says under a DNA government, he promised swift action on crime, with changes to the judiciary bringing an end to the back log of cases, government involvement on criminal matters and return of capital punishment.Highlighting what the DNA will do if elected, McCartney says an immediate introduction of a $250 minimum weekly wage will be implemented, while his party will introduce an exit strategy for Foreign Investments protecting the interest of Bahamians first. Other DNA plans for governance include a Fiscal Accountability Act, as a means of monitoring macro-economic performance within government programmes, a land registry independent from the Prime Minister’s office, and introduce more concessions for Bahamians to own more, such as banks.Meanwhile, the DNA Leader called out the changes occurring at the Parliament Registration Commission, as an ‘intentional move’, “wide spread voter apathy and an attempt to suppress voters”. From the “countless numbers of errors found on the voting list, to the prejudice faced by persons attempting to register, based on their attire”, McCartney described these instances as “Obvious attempts to frustrate Bahamians to abandon their constitutional rights”.He went on to set the record straight over what he calls tactics employed by “Spin Doctors” who call the DNA as a “non factor and nothing more than a spoiler”, as “malignant seed planted as means of stifling a still growing democracy and maintaining the status quo”.  McCartney furthers this point, calling it an “insult to the memory of our forefathers who fought for our rights” to chose.#MagneticMediaNews#DNAsaysGiveBahamasCleanSlate#BahamasGeneralElections2017 Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppcenter_img Related Items:last_img read more

 

The Man in the High Castle Gets New Showrunner for Season Three

first_imgAmazon has already greenlit a third season of its alternative history, science fiction drama The Man in the High Castle after what it’s calling a successful premiere weekend for the second season.Also, the company is making some changes behind the scenes in preparation for the upcoming season. Eric Overmyer, who already developed the show Bosch for Amazon, has been brought on to be the showrunner and executive producer for the new season.“Eric and his team are doing an incredible job crafting stories about the inner lives of those who struggle to do good in a world that is not,” Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy and Drama at Amazon Studios, said in a press release.The show was due for a new showrunner since Frank Spotnitz left the show in the middle of season two’s production. Other producers picked up responsibilities in the meantime, so a permanent showrunner was never hired.While original reports said Spotnitz left the show over geographical disputes (he lives and works in Paris while the show was filmed in Vancouver), he confirmed later that it was due to creative differences. The distance was still an issue for other executives since Spotnitz was often not on set, but it was his decision to exit.“I had a very different idea about where I wanted the show to go, and what I wanted the stories to be. So, we just sort of agreed to part ways, and I would say it was pretty friendly; in fact, it was one of the most cordial disagreements you could imagine,” Spotnitz said.Despite this drama, The Man in the High Castle‘s second season premiered on Dec. 16 and raked in the viewers. According to Amazon, the show has the most viewers over its debut weekend of all Amazon original series. While reviews have been mixed (Vox’s Todd VanDerWerff called it the worst TV show of 2016), it still managed to present an alternate reality that was, unfortunately, appropriate when it came to this year.“As timely as ever, the exploration of characters at a dark point for humanity has provided incredible stories for two seasons,” Lewis said.According to the statement, the third season will premiere sometime in 2017. In the meantime, viewers can catch up on the first two seasons over at Amazon Prime and catch up on some teases that the studio has been putting out on social media, like the one below.last_img read more

Google Chrome 65 release information

first_imgGoogle Chrome 65 release information by Martin Brinkmann on March 07, 2018 in Google Chrome – Last Update: June 14, 2018 – 19 commentsGoogle started the rollout of the web browser Google Chrome 65 for desktop and mobile systems earlier today.The release post on the official Chrome Releases blog does not reveal much about changes, improvements or new features but an hour-long combing through of the official changelog revealed several interesting changes in Chrome 65.Desktop users can load chrome://settings/help to run a manual check for updates. Chrome should pick up the new version, 65.0.3325.146, on page load. The situation is different on Android where the new release is rolled out gradually to devices.Chrome 65One of the new features of Google Chrome 65 is a new tab-under blocking mechanism designed to prevents sites from abusing clicks on links. Google demonstrated two abuse cases in October 2017 where sites would load a URL after a link click in a new tab and change the URL of the source page to a different address at the same time.Tab unders are used by malicious actors, spammers and also for advertising purposes. What made them interesting up until now was that Chrome’s built-in popup blocker did not block them.Chrome 65 includes another security related improvement. The browser ignores the presence of download attributes on anchor elements with cross-origin attributes to protect against cross-origin information leakage.Chrome 65 supports the TLS 1.3 draft-23 version.Google revealed some development-related changes back in February when it announced the upgrade of the beta channel of the browser to version 65.

Facebook banned my podcast for being too political but I fought back

first_imgGAYSTARNEWS- I’ve spent the last two years creating a new podcast called Rainbow Riots Radio, featuring queer stories from around the world. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… It’s both a web radio series and a musical collaboration I have made with some of the people I have met during my travels to fight for LGBTQ from Uganda to India, Australia, Jamaica and Nigeria.I wanted to give voice to my queer brothers and sisters who are often silenced. Little did I know, that I would barely unveil the podcast before it nearly got silenced.Petter Wallenberg | Photo: Miguel Angel RegaladoLGBTI stories ‘too political’, says FacebookThe first episode came out two weeks ago and features an intimate interview with 73-year old gay historian and author Lars Fimmerstad, who has lived through modern gay liberation and  lost the love of his life during the Aids crisis in my native Sweden.In this episode we touch upon how gay people were vilified and silenced in mainstream media and society, not that long ago.It’s not an unfamiliar story, yet I had to fight to get it heard, as when I tried to run an ad for it on Facebook, they banned it, deeming the content too ‘political’.I was surprised. As queer people, we didn’t choose to be political.We just want to live our lives like everybody else. When two straight people hold hands in the street it’s viewed as personal – when queer people do it, it’s viewed as political.Petter Wallenberg (R) and Lars Fimmerstad in Sweden | Photo: Miguel Angel RegaladoHere we are againThat a big American corporation censured our queer stories, was a dejavu moment to me.I remember when I was fifteen, and another big American corporation, The Disney Company, stopped the British pop group Erasure from performing on Swedish TV because front singer Andy Bell is openly gay, which went against the brand’s ‘family values’.This was in 1992. It’s really not that long ago.But people forget. Queer people forget. Petter Wallenberg and Jamaican rapper Mista Majah P |Photo: Olav Holten center_img eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) We are so eager to be accepted, that we happily bury the past and move on. But it’s important to remember our history, or it can easily repeat itself.I won’t take this lying downSo I protested and I went to the media. Last week the Facebook ban of Rainbow Riots Radio was all over the Swedish news.I think this helped my case, because after I demanded that they prepare a statement to the media, they finally budged and lifted the ban. ‘We have decided that the content is not political’ was Facebook’s somewhat puzzling explanation.It just shows that it’s worth fighting your corner. But the battle is not over.Petter Wallenberg (center) and some of his Ugandan collaborators on the Rainbow Riots projectThis is more than just a Facebook banThis is a conversation much larger than just content on Facebook. Many of the people who I have interviewed for Rainbow Riots Radio live in countries where it’s illegal and dangerous to be queer.In more than 70 countries around the world we as LGBTQ people risk being arrested for simply being ourselves. In regimes where we have no human rights – social media is often the the only voice we have. To take that away is to silence all of us.If we get complacent, we risk losing our rights. Not just us queer people, but everybody. Before we know it, freedom of speech can be taken away. That’s why it’s important that we keep getting our voices heard.Death threatsToday we release the second episode of Rainbow Riots Radio, which is about Jamaica, a country so homophobic queer kids live in the sewers, fearing for their lives.The guest this time is my friend and collaborator Mista Majah P, a Jamaican rapper who is one of the few taking a stand against homophobia.This can be a dangerous thing to do. During our talk, things got deadly serious, as he suddenly received a death threat.No matter how far we have come, violent homophobia is still alive and kicking in 2018. This is what makes all queer lives political, regardless of whether we ourselves choose to be political or not.Petter Wallenberg is an artist, activist and founder of international LGBTQ organisation Rainbow Riots.

Tymoshenkos tigress gives birth to 4 cubs

first_img More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements For nearly three weeks, Tymoshenko was on a hunger strike after prison officials allegedly beat her, and she ended it on Wednesday when a German doctor was allowed to supervise her treatment for severe back pain at the clinic in the eastern city of Kharkiv, where her prison is located.“These are really very rare tigers,” said Oleh Zubkov, head of Ukraine’s biggest zoo, where Tigryulia is kept in the Black Sea resort city Yalta. “All the zoos in Ukraine and in the world dream of having such tigers born.”Since Tigryulia, a 3-year-old white Bengal tiger, successfully delivered the cubs she has been reluctant to nurse them, apparently distracted by zoo visitors and her partner, a 6-year-old tiger from France named Patrice. Zoo workers are helping out by nursing the cubs from bottles.Zubkov, whose wife works at the zoo, said she “has completely disappeared from my life _ she feeds them every two hours.”Tigryulia’s path to fame started in the summer of 2009, when the then 4-month-old tiger was bought at a Swiss zoo and presented to Tymoshenko, the charismatic Orange Revolution heroine, at a children’s festival.Tymoshenko, who then served as prime minister and was running for president, fell in love with the tiger and made the animal a key image of her campaign, with posters of Tymoshenko tenderly holding Tigryulia dotting the country. Afterward, Tigryulia was placed in the Yalta zoo and a Tymoshenko ally brought in the Bengal tiger, Patrice, from France to keep her company, but the two didn’t hit it off at first. Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine (AP) – A beautiful white tiger that became a symbol of Yulia Tymoshenko’s presidential campaign has returned to the spotlight by giving birth to four cubs, including a rare albino one.Activists hope the birth of the cubs in a zoo on Sunday will lift the spirits of Tymoshenko since she is now in prison and she had used the tigress, Tigryulia, as a symbol of ferocious resolve.

Finally the tigers got used to being in the same enclosure and they mated.But as Tigryulia’s star rose, Tymoshenko became much less fortunate.She lost the 2010 presidential election to her longtime foe, the Orange Revolution nemesis President Viktor Yanukovych, and was sentenced to seven years in prison in October on charges of abuse of office. The trial was condemned by the West as politically motivated.Yanukovych has resisted strong pressure from the European Union and the United States to release Tymoshenko, and she has become the target of new charges and investigations.Zubkov said the zoo has launched a contest to name the four cubs, but there is one rule: each name must contain the sound “Yu,” like Tymoshenko’s first name.In the meantime, he has sent photographs of Tigryulia and her cubs to Tymoshenko in prison.The zoo hopes Tymoshenko “will enjoy these photos at such a difficult period of her life and that they will cheer her up,” Zubkov said. 0 Comments   Share   last_img read more

Home Shoppers Cool on Limited Housing Stock

first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Headlines, News June 2, 2014 434 Views Early housing demand indicators suggest buyer interest weakened in April due to a slowdown in new stock.In its latest Real-Time Demand Pulse, national brokerage Redfin recorded a 2.1 percent month-over-month decline in customers taking home tours in April. At the same time, tours were up 15.8 percent year-over-year, indicating the demand is there—if supply can keep up.”New listings get the attention of would-be buyers, prompting them to go on home tours,” said Nela Richardson, chief economist at Redfin. “However, new listings increased just 8 percent in April, compared with 25 percent growth in March, and that slower growth had a dampening effect on home tours.”With single-family construction still subdued and the weakened economy offering few incentives for homeowners to move, Richardson expects “this absence of new supply will be keenly felt in the demand numbers and by consumers who may be frustrated looking for a home to purchase.”Further evidence of that frustration was seen in the number of signed offers, which ticked up 1.5 percent in April compared to a 5 percent increase the same time last year. As an early predictor of future home sales, the drop in offers indicates the pace of home sales heading into the summer months may increase slower than the expected surge many market-watchers had anticipated.”Thus far there is little indication that there is going to be a huge pickup in sales in the second quarter to make up for the lethargic housing market endured in the first three months of the year,” Richardson said. “Even with the polar vortex behind us, low inventory and rising prices continue to be significant headwinds to housing demand.” Demand Housing Starts Housing Supply Redfin 2014-06-02 Tory Barringercenter_img Home Shoppers Cool on Limited Housing Stock Sharelast_img read more
