KAMLOOPS, B.C. – A British Columbia man is facing several charges including kidnapping and use of a firearm after a semi-tractor trailer and its driver were allegedly commandeered by an armed assailant earlier this week.RCMP Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said the incident began late Monday afternoon when a Mountie found a man slumped over in his running van near Avola, B.C. As the officer was putting the suspect into a police car he overpowered him and drove off in his original vehicle.In what Moskaluk described as a “very dynamic situation” the driver allegedly forced a pick-up truck to pull over but was unsuccessful in taking the vehicle, then took off again when police arrived.Moskaluk said the man ended up stopping at a roadside turnout north of Kamloops where semi-tractor trailers were parked.He approached one of the vehicles, smashed out a window and attempted unsuccessfully to convince the trucker to drive him away, Moskaluk said.The man then jumped into a second truck loaded with wood and is alleged by police to have threatened the driver and brandished a gun.“Now the truck driver proceeded with the suspect southbound with police officers responding in the vicinity with several unmarked vehicles,” said Moskaluk.“Essentially they joined into a convoy, unbeknownst to the suspect and were following the truck at a safe distance.”The driver of the truck was able to receive instructions from police by phone and convinced the suspect he was speaking to his dispatcher in order avoid suspicion.The driver was able to jump out of the semi when he pulled into a weigh scale station west of Kamloops and sought shelter with officers on scene.Moskaluk says the emergency response team disabled the truck and attempted to force the suspect out of the vehicle using gas canisters.“He did not exit the vehicle and attempted to drive it further. He only succeeded in driving it a few hundred metres before it slid off the roadway and overturned,” said Moskaluk.“The suspect exited the vehicle only to be met by the awaiting police service dog team, who effected the arrest without further incident.”The suspect suffered minor dog bite injuries and was arrested.David Lee Chappell, 33, of the Lower Mainland faces a number of charges including kidnapping and use of a firearm in the commission of an offence.Moskaluk said the case could have ended up far worse.“No individuals were injured throughout the course of the incident and no shots were fired by the suspect,” he said.“Considering that this started off with an officer being overpowered by an individual we’re thankful.”Moskaluk said the investigation is continuing and further charges could still be laid.— By Bill Graveland in Calgary, follow @BillGraveland on Twitter.

Rabat – Morocco is expecting a good harvest this year. Thanks to the best weather and a good distribution of rainfall, the Ministry of Agriculture is optimistic about the outcome of the 2014-2015 crop year.According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Marine Fisheries, the national average cumulative rainfall as of March 13, 2015 amounted to 318.9 mm, a 12% compared to a normal year (285.8 mm) and + 50% compared to last year (212.8 mm).Morocco’s main dams reached 10.29 billion cubic meters of water on December 2, 2014, recording an occupancy rate of 65.7%. Nine dams reached a 100% occupancy rate. The ministry added that the use of certified seeds increased, which will help to improve plant performance. Of the 1.9 million quintals available, 1.45 million quintals were sold, marking a 12% increase from the previous season.The Climatic conditions have created an ideal context for the growth of cereals. Grain planting cover about 5.02 million hectares, or 98% in the current crop year, with soft wheat (42%), barley (33%) and durum wheat (22%).
AUDIO: UN Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights, Kate Gilmore. “We see health not only as the absence of disease and not only a question of access to services, but in fact the right to be human is a manner that you have your physical and mental integrity upheld,” Kate Gilmore said in an interview with UN News. Similarly, health care workers are part of the “machinery of human rights defence,” yet are increasingly being targeted for doing their jobs. “In conflict settings, there has been a marked spike in the targeting of hospitals, of doctors, of ambulances and of nurses. And this is not only quite unconscionable,” the Deputy High Commissioner said, noting these attacks are also against international humanitarian law and the basic rules of war to which each Government has signed up by virtue of being a member of the United Nations. “But in other settings, too,” she continued. “In non-conflict settings, health workers who work with communities that are subjected to terrible bigotry, those working with those suffering leprosy, historically health workers providing services to those living with HIV and AIDS, workers whose priority is sexual and reproductive health.” Ms. Gilmore noted “a pattern across the globe of health workers being targeted for providing compassionate, humane care rooted in medical science.” She denounced such attacks calling them “wrong, unfair and unjust.” Ms. Gilmore, along with Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Andrew Gilmour, will participate at a dialogue today at the UN Headquarters in New York on how human rights, including the right to health, are reflected in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The school compete sporadically in the ‘A’ competitions when they feel they’ve got a decent team and the this year’s crop was littered with Roscommon U17s.Manager Eoghan Coll decided he’d need some help in his backroom team if they were to play in the top competition.“It’s usually just one teacher in our school that takes it,” Coll tells The42. “So long story short, we were trying to suss out what we could get. I chatted to the caretaker who’d be a guy who knows people around the town and he said, ‘You should try Kevin McStay.’ Source: James Crombie/INPHO“In terms of his time, he teaches a bit of maths in the evenings but in the day time his time would be fairly free. I kind of laughed and said, ‘Sure give him a ring there anyway.’“The caretaker got back to me and said, ‘Yeah he’s interested.’“So I went and met him in his house and outlined what we were planning and the players we have. He knew a few of the players from watching the development squads and stuff and he said, ‘Yeah, I’ll give you a hand.’ That was basically how it happened.“It just went from there. He came in, took sessions. Liam McHale was there too – not as much as McStay now – but he came to a lot of the matches and took a session or two.Coll continues: “The rumour around the place was, ‘How much is he getting paid?’ Absolutely for a fact, there wasn’t a cent (handed over). No expenses, zero. Source: James Crombie/INPHO“No ego. He just thought it was a nice project that suited his timetable and as he said, if he could add a bit to the development of Roscommon football that way then why not?“He was very easy to work with. When we were picking the team he definitely had his input but there was no sense that he was going to pick it. We sat down, had a cup of coffee and went through it. There was another selector Liam Tully, he would have managed the Roscommon U17s that got to the All-Ireland final last year.”Coll played under McStay when the latter managed Roscommon Gaels to the senior county title in 2004 so they were acquainted before they started working together.They were ultimately beaten by Rice College, Westport in the league semi-final and St Jarlath’s College in the championship last eight, but the youngsters would have benefited enormously from working with the county boss.“I’ve taken senior teams on six or seven occasions at this stage,” he says. “Training-wise you’d always get a solid group of 20-odd training well, but definitely the numbers remained higher this season.“Lads who were peripheral stuck at it more with the hope things would go well and because you’ve got the senior county manager taking sessions and giving you instructions. You could definitely see that it lifted the players.“The sessions were fun, they were tough work at times but there was definitely that fun element to it. That’s the thing I took from it, that it’s not all slog and grit. There’s an element of that of course, but there’s also a lot of craic in terms of running the drills and pushing yourself in an environment that’s tough but also a lot of fun.” Source: James Crombie/INPHO Source: James Crombie/INPHOMayo News ran a story in December on the sight of McStay and McHale patrolling the sideline for Roscommon CBS their league semi-final loss to Rice College.“Less than seven days from Christmas you’d forgive the duo for not retaining the same level of commitment during the summertime,” Ger Flanagan wrote. “Not these two though!“They were as animated, analytical, and enthusiastic as if it was the beginning of May, with the football fast and the weather warm. McHale was relentlessly searching for areas of improvement, encouraging initiative and spotting mistakes. “Did you see that Kevin?“‘He had him bet, but he turned back inside,’ McHale stressed. No doubt that will be brought up in the next training session. McStay too was in no room for messing. This was a game to be won, nothing more, nothing less.”Coll was in agreement that the double act took their role very seriously.“His enthusiasm is very noticeable. He wouldn’t have treated them any different I’d say to the county senior players. He didn’t treat them like kids. He was saying, ‘I’m here to do a serious job and we’re going to try and push this as far as we can.’“They were talking to the lads and trying to get the most out of them, they were really into it. He committed 100% there’s no doubt. The big thing I’d say from my point of view was that he was very amenable, very easy to deal with. Very courteous and very easy to deal with.“If he couldn’t do a session he’d be apologetic, but he was doing me a favour he didn’t need to be apologetic that he couldn’t make a session or two. I’d say he made 90% of the sessions we ran all year. Source: Donall Farmer/INPHO“No ego, just loves football and wants to develop these guys. He knew there was a few good lads who would be possible inter-county players coming into the future and thought he could add to their developments. That was kind of it.”Former CBS students John McManus and James Featherstone are part of the Roscommon squad today and Coll feels McStay’s men are coming into the game in a good position.“The pressure is on Galway. The expectation nationally is that they’re the coming team. Everyone’s thinking Roscommon aren’t going to do it so it’s a good position to be in I suppose.“They’ll be well-prepped anyway. Galway have a lot of dangerous players but if you can get on top around the middle and win enough possession I think they’ll give it a shot. It’ll be tough no doubt, but they won’t fear them.”The42 is on Instagram! Tap the button below on your phone to follow us! By Kevin O’Brien WHEN KEVIN MCSTAY led Roscommon side St Brigid’s to the All-Ireland club football final in 2013, he watched most of the game from a high vantage point in the Hogan Stand. McStay takes in the 2016 Connacht quarter-final against Leitrim from the stand Source: James Crombie/INPHOMcStay and his backroom team on the sideline wore earpieces to keep in contact and discuss potential changes, but not long into the second-half there was a radio silence for the next 10 or 12 minutes as contact between both parties was lost.Frustrated by a Ballymun Kickhams score, the St Brigid’s manager had fired his earpiece across his room. St Brigid’s survived a tricky third-quarter spell, but the earpiece didn’t.Unable to communicate with his selectors down below, McStay reappeared on the sideline for the dramatic closing 15 minutes or so. A late left-footed Frankie Dolan point sealed a historic first All-Ireland crown for the Kiltoom club and wrote McStay’s name into St Brigid’s folklore.Later today with Liam McHale alongside him, he hopes to lead Roscommon to a first Connacht SFC two-in-a-row since 1991. That St Patrick’s Day success five years ago that gives a little insight into what McStay stands for as a manager. Source: Ryan Byrne/INPHOShortly after St Brigid’s lifted the Andy Merrigan Cup with a narrow one-point win over Ballymun, the squad gathered in the Croke Park players lounge for a post-game meal. They were served chicken and pasta, of all things, and sipped on bottles of beer.Before boarding the bus for the 90-minute spin back to Athlone, McStay asked his players not to have any more alcohol until they arrived home. He was mindful of the number of children who’d be in the 10,000-strong crowd waiting for their heroes when they stepped off the bus.It was also the first time most players would see their parents and families since the final whistle.The squad were happy to agree with the request. Having suffered All-Ireland semi-final defeats in 2007 and 2013, in addition to a heartbreaking final loss in 2011, the high of victory was enough to keep them ticking over until they arrived back in Athlone.Even after victory, the optics were important for McStay. Source: James Crombie/INPHOAs a manager, he places a huge emphasis on defensive match-ups and the importance of the panel game. In the 2013 All-Ireland club semi-final, Ger Aherne was handed the responsibility of marking Crossmaglen’s Oisin McConville. He kept McConville scoreless before the legendary forward was substituted shortly before half-time.Final opponents Ballymun were more athletic and pacey than Crossmaglen, so McStay made the difficult decision to leave Aherne on the bench for the biggest game of his career. He made a number of telling contributions during the season, but Aherne’s season was book-ended by not getting any game-time in the final.“It was a hard pill to swallow but when you stand back and look at it, the management analysed Ballymun and looked at who were our best players to beat them on the day,” Aherne said rather philosophically in ‘The Belief’ – in the story of the St Brigid’s All-Ireland win.“Taking them over the course of the year and taking every decision they made into consideration, they made a decision on what they had in front of them and we won the match.”St Brigid’s lifted the title and McStay’s decision proved to be the right one. It’s a knack he has retained during his time as Roscommon boss. He got his defensive match-ups right against Galway in the Connacht final and the drawn All-Ireland quarter-final with Mayo.He stresses that the team that starts won’t be the same one that finishes and places emphasis on the ‘game minutes’ mantra. You might only play 10 minutes of the 70, but those 10 minutes could be the most pivotal of the match.McStay likes to finish with his strongest team, but may have gone too far in that direction in the Mayo replay last August when he kept Fintan Cregg, Ciarain Murtagh and Donal Smith in reserve rather than starting them. By half-time, Mayo were 3-8 to 0-4 ahead and out of sight.Against Kevin Walsh’s side today, Cathal Cregg will finish the game but otherwise have started their strongest possible line-up.Roscommon head into the Connacht final as underdogs but know they are well capable of springing another ambush on Galway. They arrived into Salthill last July on the back of a spring where they looked like a hapless side during League Sunday wrap-up reports. Source: Tommy Dickson/INPHOThey bottomed out of Division 1 after just one victory and it’s easy to forget the negative air that hung around the county.“If you throw yourselves back to this time last year, as a management team and as a group of players, we were fighting for our sheer reputations as footballers and people involved with football teams,” McStay admitted at the pre-Connacht final press day.“So therefore winning Connacht was a monstrous prize for us.”Earlier in the year, with Roscommon struggling, McStay had to defend himself in the wake of criticism from former county player and manager Gay Sheerin on the local airwaves.Following a six-point loss to Kerry, Sheerin told Shannonside Radio he didn’t “like to see Mayo men on the sideline for a Roscommon team.” He went on: “I fought for years against Liam McHale and Kevin McStay, playing against them. And they hated me and they hated Roscommon.“And they can’t have got that love (for Roscommon), there’s no way, because I couldn’t get that love for them.”“That was the greatest load of nonsense I’ve heard,” McStay told RTE in response. In fairness to the Ballina native, his commitment to Roscommon football can’t be questioned.McStay hits out at ‘nonsense’ criticism of Mayo rootshttps://t.co/8mFNNA0Myp pic.twitter.com/YcG5yUEcFk— RTÉ Sport (@RTEsport) March 5, 2017 10 Armagh U20s slapped with Ulster final suspensions following Tyrone brawlDublin could be about to lose talented youngster to AFL as Brisbane offer pro contract Short URL Follow us: the42.ie

Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom July 10, 2019 SANDAG, Navy Ink Agreement to Consider Redevelopment of Old Town Naval Complex KUSI Newsroom, Posted: July 10, 2019 Mayor Faulconer, Navy officials and SANDAG announce agreement to explore putting a transit hub for the Airport on redeveloped NAVWAR complex property in Midway area pic.twitter.com/zF9ezHr2AL— Ed Lenderman (@EdLendermanKUSI) July 10, 2019 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego Association of Governments signed a memorandum of understanding with local U.S. Navy officials Wednesday to collaboratively draft a redevelopment plan for the Naval Base Point Loma Old Town Complex.According to SANDAG, the agreement does not require either party to take action on the 70-acre property, but it will allow both sides to discuss their vision for the complex’s future. The agreement opens the door to potentially use the complex as San Diego’s “Grand Central Station” to connect public rail transit to the San Diego International Airport.“This is the beginning of what I expect to be a long partnership with the Navy,” said SANDAG board Chair and Poway Mayor Steve Vaus. “The MOU creates the opportunity for SANDAG and the Navy to do something very special in the region, clearing a path for us to work on a major transportation hub and providing a transit link to the airport.”Although planning for the potential transit hub is still in its nascent stages and years from completion, the project has the support of SANDAG Executive Chairman Hasan Ikhrata and San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, who sits on the SANDAG board.“This is an amazing opportunity to strengthen the Navy’s presence in San Diego, create thousands of jobs and make it easier for people across the region to get to and from the airport,” Faulconer said. “This agreement is a promising beginning to what could be one of the most transformative projects in our region’s history.”The project could eventually receive partial funding from the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, which signed a 10-year agreement with its airline partners last week to fund improvements to public transportation to and from the airport.The complex is currently home to Naval cybersecurity and information officials, including the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command. More than 3,500 personnel currently work at the World War II-era complex, using it for lab and storage space.“The Navy remains dedicated to creating a more modern, efficient workspace on the OTC property to better meet the mission requirements of Naval Information Warfare Systems Command and the other tenants on the property, while working closely with SANDAG and other entities to foster robust community engagement for this project,” said Capt. Mark Edelson, the commanding officer of Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest.
The widespread adoption of PDF workflows is a step in the right direction, bringing standardization to what used to be a much more complicated process of file integration. “The overwhelming migration to PDF allows technology providers to focus on technology around that format, and knowledge of that baseline allows publishers and printers to invest in those technologies that support improved standards of PDF,” says Guy Gleysteen, senior vice president of production at Time Inc. Right now, the latest “flavor” of PDF is PDF X-1a, specifically designed for the blind exchange of print-ready files that eliminates errors like fonts not embedded, wrong color space, missing images, and overprint/trap issues. Also, PDF users who want to automate the workflow can implement Adobe’s Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP), a technology that embeds data about a file (metadata) into the file itself.Job Definition Format (JDF) is another proposed standard for automation, but it’s been slow to catch on. Accordingto FOLIO:’s Digital Publishing Survey, published in September 2007, only 5 percent of respondents were using JDF files last year. While 18 percent say they’ll start using them in one or two years and 19 percent say they’ll use them in more than three years, 23 percent say they’ll never use JDF. Part of the reason is that JDF, as a format, requires investment and development to implement. “It is a baseline architecture to build a system around, not something you can buy,” says Gleysteen. JDF may be too much of a departure for some observers. “I think it’s because it introduces a change to the way publishers are used to doing things,” says Andrew Moore, product manager at printer United Litho. “It also requires buy-in and support from most equipment and software manufacturers. Until then, we enjoy human communication and collaboration of each other’s job specifi cations. That’s not such a bad thing.”Others, like Peter Tomski, senior director of premedia and manufacturing at b-to-b publisher CMP, see potential in JDF. CMP will be exploring the possibility with its partners in 2008, he says. Paula Gordon, director of manufacturing at Reed Business Information, says RBI started using JDF about three months ago and will continue on that path in 2008. JDF will automate every step in their workflow, from creation of ads and editorial to layout, production and delivery, and it will integrate that process with the business end through JDF-compliant software called JournalProducer, which manages deadline, circulation, budgeting and onhand versus needed materials information. All of this information can be downloaded to JDF-compliant printing equipment.”If more printers start to incentivize publishers to go towards JDF, then the number using it would grow. As publishers start to see real time and cost savings, more printers and publishers will adopt some form of the process, just as they did from film to CTP to PDF,” says Gordon. Apparently, potential cost savings are reason enough to consider it: According to FOLIO:’s survey results, 20 percent of those who use JDF estimate annual savings of $200,000 or more.The Promise of Virtual ProofingVirtual proofing-used by 52 percent of respondents in FOLIO:’s survey-shifted to a new level of utility in 2007 for many of its users. Also known as soft proofing, the technology is based on the use of calibrated color-accurate monitors and eliminates the need to send hard proofs back and forth, thereby reducing time and cost and allowing for last minute addition of content and a longer ad-selling period.Hachette Filipacchi started using virtual proofing with seven of its titles last year and will transition the rest this year, says Stephen Romeo, director of strategic sourcing at HFM U.S.Transcontinental Printing introduced virtual proofing to their customers in 2006, mostly for select images and occasionally a page for color. In 2007, they transitioned virtual proofing into a process, says Nicky Milner, the printer’s vice president of premedia, not only for proofi ng pages but also as a press-side platform for flats. In 2008, she says the next step is to create a book mockup-complete with folded pages-in virtual form. “This brings us back to all the capabilities of a paper format,” Milner says. Gleysteen says he’s still trying to understand publishers’ hesitation when Time Inc., the largest magazine publisher in the U.S. with publications ranging from Fortune to People, Sports Illustrated to InStyle, has been using virtual proofing successfully for years.But Tomski at CMP is considering a skip right over virtual proofs, from hard to none. “Ad portals almost freeze out the need for hard proofs. I don’t know the last time I had a color complaint. The key would be to tag this, mark concerns over a six-month period and let that metric drive us into eliminating proofs or looking into virtual,” he says.Completing the TriangleAd portals, which allow ads to be submitted, preflighted and trafficked via a Web browser, complement virtual proofing but their adoption doesn’t appear to be as widespread-21 percent of respondents to FOLIO:’s survey used ad portals in 2007 versus the 52 percent who used virtual proofing. Still, many production specialists see ad portals as the way of the future.”A point will come where advertisers won’t be able to not submit to a portal,” says Scott Pellicone, vice president of business development and electronic publishing for the magazine division at Quebecor World. Romeo says the continued development of a customized ad portal is one of HFM U.S.’s main production priorities of 2008.Also appearing to gain ground are online insertion orders, which CMP’s Tomski describes as a “schema to automate everything from order entry to electronic tear sheet.” Eighteen percent of FOLIO: survey respondents say they used insertion orders in 2007, four percent more than the year before. However, while Tomski sees promise in the technology and plans to explore the possibilities in 2008, he says, “it’s probably a few years out from realization, at least for our needs.” Magazine production has changed dramatically in the last few years. Tools and standards that came to the forefront in 2007-ad portals, virtual proofing, online insertion orders, PDFs-were not exactly new but gained significant ground with publishers and printers. Publishers today are grappling with digital asset management and metadata, as well as putting ink on paper. So far, 2008 is looking like a progression of the curve, as publishers seek cost-saving solutions to streamline the production process and prepare for a budget crunch in the face of an economic downturn and rising costs.Where Production is HeadingWith the publishing world moving faster and in more directions than ever, publishers, advertisers and printers are even more dependent on one another. Meanwhile, jobs and services continue to be outsourced, including through overseas vendors, which makes speed and file compatibility all the more important.
X Listen Nearly 80 percent of all plastics ever made have ended up in landfills or the natural environment, like our oceans. That’s according to a recent study from the peer-reviewed journal Science Advances. The study says only nine percent of the plastics ever made have been recycled.To address the problem, researchers are working to create new plastics that biodegrade easier once they end up in the environment or that can be recycled easier. One of those researchers is Dr. Megan Robertson. She’s an associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at the University of Houston.Robertson says researchers want to create new materials that can have a so-called green birth, green life, and green death. By green birth, Robertson says scientists want to create new polymers that come from more environmentally friendly sources, such as plants. Most plastics today are created from petroleum.Michael HagertyDr. Megan Robertson researches potential new plastics at the University of Houston.By green life, she says researchers want to create new materials that last longer and work better – all while having a less negative impact on the environment while in use.And, by green death, she says researchers like herself want to create materials that will have less damaging effects once their life is over.Robertson says her research has developed some new materials that will break down under the right chemical process. That means a new chemical recycling process could be used on them. She’s also worked on some materials that can be reshaped under the right heat and therefore repurposed.She talks with Houston Matters producer Michael Hagerty about her work and the quest to reinvent the way plastics are born, live, and die.

With the release of Black Ops the older Call of Duty games haven’t gotten a lot of coverage, but they remain popular with gamers thanks to a strong multiplayer component and huge player base. That’s why it’s so troubling that the PlayStation 3 version of the game appears to broken by exploiters and hackers, and that a fix may not be on the way any time soon.A few days ago on the Infinity Ward forums mod Robert Bowling (fourzerotwo) posted this message:Sony has recently acknowledged a breach in security on the PS3 which has resulted in the hardware and its games to become exposed to exploits and hacks. Modern Warfare 2 is no exception to this security exploit and we understand that some of you have experienced problems with stats and other issues associated with this.Report Inappropriate Players to SonyGames rely on the security of the encryption on the platforms they’re played on, therefore; updates to the game through patches will not resolve this problem completely, unless the security exploit itself is resolved on the platform. However, that doesn’t mean we’re not going to look into every option available to us. Regretfully, Call of Duty games are receiving the bulk of the hacker’s attention, due to its high player counts and popularity. However, the number of legitimate players severely outweighs the bad apples.If you are concerned about playing with players who are hacking, I encourage you to play exclusively with friends by utilizing the party or private match options in Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty 4 to avoid such players as much as possible until this issue is resolved by Sony. At this time, we do not have the ability to restore or adjust individual stats. Let me assure you, while we are very reliant on Sony updating their firmware and security to address the core problem of this issue. We are looking at EVERY option available to us to help any user affected.This only applies to legacy games such as Call of Duty 4 and Modern Warfare 2. In the future we plan to adjust our approach to not rely solely on platform security and reduce the ability for this to happen in our games, as has already been displayed by the work Treyarch has done on Call of Duty: Black Ops to prevent similar measures. So it looks like the problems aren’t restricted to Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2, but they are taking the brunt of the impact because of their popularity and the effectiveness of exploits like aimbots. The newest game in the series, Black Ops, uses its own security (in addition to Sony’s) so it’s not affected by the hacks.If you are affected, the situation can be very serious. Commentor Cryo70 notes that if you are hacked and your account is “screwed up” you should just create a new account and re-register on the PlayStation Network. Ouch.via joystiq and destructoid
Wednesday, December 7, 2016 << Previous PostNext Post >> GENEVA — Global passenger traffic was up 5.8% in October 2016 compared to the same month last year, according to the latest IATA results. Capacity increased 6.3% and load factor slid 0.4 percentage points to 80.1%.October’s performance was a slow-down on the 7.1% year-on-year growth rate recorded in September but still was in line with 10-year averages, noted IATA. Domestic and international travel growth largely was in balance.“Passenger demand growth in October was consistent with long-term trends but represented a deterioration compared to September,” said Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO. “While the negative traffic impact from terror attacks and political instability in parts of the world has receded, the long downward trend in yield – which helped to stimulate travel – has levelled off. Furthermore, the recent OPEC agreement to restrict oil production suggests fuel prices have ended their slide.”Airlines in all regions recorded growth. North American airline traffic climbed 2.4% in October compared to the year-ago period. This was the lowest among the regions, however on a seasonally-adjusted basis passenger volumes have still risen at an annualized rate of around 5% since March. Capacity rose 4.9% and load factor dropped 1.9 percentage points to 80.1%. Posted by Travelweek Group Share Tags: IATA Airfares level off, leading to slow-down in global air traffic growth: IATA
Speaking publicly for the first time since his return, Gabriel dismissed that criticism Thursday, saying the earlier sanctions against Iran only had “one concrete reason and that was the nuclear negotiations.”He said making countries’ human rights situation the basis for economic ties would mean calling into question relations with other nations, such as China.German companies did extensive business in Iran for decades until sanctions forced them to all but pull out. Among those hoping to profit now are industrial giants such as ThyssenKrupp, BASF, Volkswagen and Siemens, which was involved in the construction of Iran’s first railways in the late 19th century.Last year, Germany imported goods worth 295 million euros from Iran and exported goods not covered by the sanctions worth 2.39 billion euros ($2.6 billion). Deutsche Bank analysts last week predicted the German exports alone could soon top 4.4 billion euro, the level they were at before the sanctions were introduced a decade ago.But Germany celebrates the 50th anniversary of its diplomatic ties with Israel this year, and its dealing with Iran are under particular scrutiny at home and abroad.Green party lawmaker Volker Beck, a longtime supporter of Israel, said this week that the current Iranian government shouldn’t be considered a friend or partner for Germany.

Her office said she didn’t mention her deputy’s trip to Iran in a phone call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday.___Olga Syrova in Berlin, Amir Vahdat in Tehran, Lori Hinnant in Paris, George Jahn in Vienna and Ciaran Giles in Madrid contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home Comments Share Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall BERLIN (AP) — In the race to secure business deals with Iran, Germany was quickest out of the blocks.On Sunday, Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel became the first senior Western official to visit Iran following last week’s agreement to ease sanctions on the Islamic nation in exchange for concessions on its nuclear program.The three-day trip alongside German business leaders was criticized by Jewish groups and opposition lawmakers, who urged Germany to consider its special responsibility toward Israel, which considers the Islamic Republic a threat to its national security. Activists warned that Iran’s human rights record and support for President Bashar Assad’s regime in Syria should make Western governments think twice. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies “The human rights situation in Iran remains catastrophic and the Iranian regime continues to support terror groups such as Hezbollah and Hamas,” said Beck.In an op-ed published in German daily Handelsblatt, the head of the World Jewish Congress, Ronald S. Lauder, said it would have been much better to make new commercial relations with Iran dependent on a change in the regime’s stance toward Israel.The German government made clear that wasn’t an option.“The German economy minister is there to help his country and its economy,” said Gabriel. “And next week the French, the Italians (are going to Iran).”France’s Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius is due to visit the country next week to explore business opportunities and Spain is planning to send an official delegation in September. Austria’s president plans to travel to Iran on Sept. 7-9, likely making him the first Western head of state to do so.Switzerland, which for decades acted as an intermediary between the United States and Iran, and represents American consular interests in Iran, also hopes to profit from its good standing with the government there.Livia Leu, a former Swiss ambassador in Tehran and now the country’s top trade envoy, said Iran could become a very interesting market.

Emirates marks key milestones in 2015, its 30th year of operationsEmirates, the world’s largest international airline, will conclude another year of growth underscored by standout milestones across its fleet, network, and customer experience initiatives. Its growing business footprint also delivered increasing positive impact on the economies and communities it serves.Since January 2015, the airline has carried over 51.3 million passengers, which represented 9% more passengers during the same period in the previous calendar year.Emirates operated around 3,600 flights on average per week, or over 186,000 flights in 2015, travelling more than 824 million kilometres around the globe, which is the distance equivalent of more than 1,000 trips to the moon and back. The airline served over 57 million meals on its flights departing Dubai*, and handled over 35 million pieces of baggage in Dubai alone.Remarking on this year’s accomplishments, Sir Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline said: “2015 has been one of considerable growth for Emirates as we continued to steer our course despite the headwinds of regional conflict, unfavourable currency impact, and shaky business and consumer confidence in many global markets. Emirates has come out strong, as our mindset, combined with our fleet and network strategy has enabled us to absorb shocks and maximise opportunities.Through our 30 years of operation to date, Emirates has always stayed focussed on its core strategies: an efficient fleet and operations that capitalise on Dubai’s strategic location and infrastructure; an excellent product and service proposition for our customers; and recruiting and retaining the best talent from around the world. We will continue to build on these strengths, even as we drive ourselves to achieve new goals and set new standards for ourselves and the industry.”Connecting the world to, and through DubaiThe airline expanded its network to 150 destinations in 2015, with the addition of six new passenger destinations: Bali, Multan, Orlando, Mashhad, Bologna and Sabiha Gokcen in Istanbul; and three cargo-only destinations in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso), Columbus (USA) and Ciudad del Este, (Paraguay). In addition, Emirates uplifted frequencies and upgraded capacity to numerous points across its network.In August, Emirates announced plans to launch services to Panama City, beginning 1st February 2016. The new service will be the longest non-stop flight in the world (17 hours 35 minutes) and will be Emirates’ first gateway destination in Central America.In 2015, Emirates expanded the number of cities served by its flagship A380 aircraft to 36. Emirates brought A380 services to Perth, Dusseldorf, Madrid and Copenhagen, and layered on more A380 services to the schedules of nine other existing points spanning east to west, to highly positive customer feedback. During the year, Emirates also led one-off A380 services to seven destinations: Prague, Taipei, Brussels, Sao Paulo, Cologne, Manama and Doha.Economic contributionEmirates continues to have an important positive impact on the economies of the markets it serves – through the provision of international air transport links that facilitate trade and tourism flows, direct employment through its growing business, and indirect employment through the aviation supply chain and the other industries reliant on commercial air transport.In 2015, this effect was felt again through the aviation supply chain when Emirates announced a historic US$9.2 billion (€8.7 billion) deal with Rolls-Royce for Trent 900 engines to power 50 of its A380 aircraft, and a long-term TotalCare package. The deal was the largest ever for Rolls-Royce, and one of the largest ever export orders for a UK-based company.In November, Emirates signed a US$16 billion OnPoint solution agreement with GE Aviation for the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of the GE9X engines that will power the airline’s fleet of 150 Boeing 777X aircraft. Spanning 12 years, the deal is Emirates’ largest engine MRO contract to date, and also GE Aviation’s largest ever commercial jet engine award from an airline.In March, a report by Frontier Economics was released, estimating that Emirates contributed €6.8 billion to the economies of European Union countries in 2013 and 2014, supporting more than 85,000 jobs. Frontier also analysed European international air connectivity and concluded that Emirates provides 220 unique air connections that are not offered by any other airline or alliance.In November, the National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER) in India released the results of an economic impact study that measured Emirates’ contribution to the Indian economy. NCAER estimated that Emirates’ operations contributed over US$848 million annually to India’s GDP, supporting over 86,000 Indian jobs and generating almost US$1.7 billion in Foreign Exchange Earnings.
