Premier Acknowledges Crown Share Panel Appointments

first_imgPremier Rodney MacDonald welcomed the announcement today, Jan. 9, of the three members of the panel on Crown Share Adjustment Payments, and acknowledged the experience and ability that each member brings to the task at hand. “The members are very well respected and will bring a vast amount of knowledge, expertise and balance to the process of determining the value of the Crown share adjustment,” said the premier. “I look forward to the end of what I’m sure will be thorough deliberations, and commend each for being so willing to assist their province and country.” The premier’s comments come after the province and the federal government named Dara Gordon, partner and member of the board of directors at law firm McInnes Cooper, and Brian Lee Crowley founding president of the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies and current Clifford Clark Visiting Economist at the federal Department of Finance, as members of the panel. Lorne Clarke, former Chief Justice of Nova Scotia, has been named chair of the panel.

UN agency announces global standards for Internet television services

18 December 2007The lead United Nations agency for information and communication technology (ICT) today announced the first set of global standards for providing television services over the Internet, a move that is expected to fuel innovation and competition in an emerging field. The standards for Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) were developed by the UN International Telecommunication Union (ITU) with input from leading service providers and manufacturers from the ICT sector. They “cement ITU’s role as the global leader in IPTV standards development,” the agency said in a press statement. Highlighting the importance of the guidelines issued today, the Director of ITU’s Telecommunication Standardization Bureau said they will “encourage innovation, help mask the complexity of services, guarantee quality of service, ensure interoperability and, ultimately, help players remain competitive.”According to the agency, IPTV is a key element of a “triple-play package” of voice, video and data services, noting that “standardization is imperative if service providers are to offer high quality products with value-additions, such as video-on-demand services that will inevitably drive the market.“A combination of voice, Internet and video services over a single broadband link and from a single provider is foreseen as the ultimate goal of the broadband revolution,” it added. read more

Sony network hacked executives American Airlines flight diverted after hacker groups tweets

by David Koenig And Yuri Kageyama, The Associated Press Posted Aug 25, 2014 9:18 pm MDT Sony network hacked, executive’s American Airlines flight diverted after hacker group’s tweets AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email DALLAS – Hackers attacked Sony’s PlayStation Network and apparently disrupted the travel plans of a top company executive by going on Twitter to suggest that there was a bomb on his American Airlines plane.American cut short the Sony Corp. executive’s flight on Sunday and made an unplanned landing in Phoenix.The plane with 179 passengers and a crew of six was scheduled to fly from Dallas to San Diego but stopped for what the FBI termed a security threat. American Airlines declined to comment on the threat.A Twitter account called Lizard Squad tweeted to American Airlines that there might be explosives on the plane carrying John Smedley, the president of Sony Online Entertainment, which makes video games. The same account also claimed responsibility for the PlayStation Network outage.San Diego airport spokeswoman Rebecca Bloomfield said that as the plane was being re-routed, the Transportation Security Administration told airport officials that the FBI was investigating a tweet about possible explosives on the plane.Smedley said on Twitter: “Yes, my plane was diverted. Not going to discuss more than that. Justice will find these guys.”After landing in Phoenix, the plane taxied to a remote area of the airport, where passengers exited and their bags were searched by police officers with dogs. American Airlines spokesman Casey Norton said the plane later resumed its flight to San Diego.This isn’t the first time someone has tweeted a threat to an airline. In April, police in the Netherlands arrested a 14-year-old girl who tweeted to American Airlines that she was part of al-Qaida and was “gonna do something really big bye.”When American replied six minutes later that it would turn over the matter to the FBI, the girl posted a series of panicked tweets and said she was just a girl.Sony spokesman Satoshi Nakajima said the PlayStation Network’s online services were unavailable from Sunday through Monday afternoon Tokyo time. While Lizard Squad tweeted that it was responsible for the outage, Nakajima said it remained unclear who was behind the attack.Sony said no personal information was stolen in the incident. Hackers orchestrated a so-called denial-of-service attack against Sony, which involved overwhelming the company’s gaming network with fake visits so that legitimate users couldn’t get through. In 2011, hackers compromised the company’s network including the personal data of 77 million user accounts. Since then, the network’s security has been upgraded, the company said.___Kageyama reported from Tokyo. AP Airlines Writer Scott Mayerowitz in New York contributed to this report. read more

Ban applauds General Assembly adoption of 54 billion UN budget for next

“Your hard work, unwavering commitment and flexible cooperation have contributed to reaching that agreement,” Mr. Ban said, noting that delegates have worked through the night and reached agreement earlier than in past years.“The budget you have approved reflects the difficult global financial reality we have faced for a number of years,” he told the 193-member General Assembly, which wrapped up its work for the main part of its seventieth session by taking action on a number of texts recommended by the Fifth Committee, which focuses on administrative and budgetary issues.“Funding continues to shrink – while demands on the United Nations grow,” he noted. “Through it all, we are doing everything possible to fulfil the mandates you give us.“Through it all, we are doing everything possible to fulfil the mandates you give us. We are guided by two pressing obligations: First, our duty to respond to the needs of the world’s people. And second: our responsibility to make the most of the resources you entrust to us. Through creativity, hard work and diligence, we are rising to the challenge.”Mr. Ban went on to say that the Assembly has “wisely” decided to add resources to strengthen the very important pillar of development, commending its decision to support the follow-up and review of the world body’s efforts to reach the Sustainable Development Goals and carry out the financing for development agenda.The Assembly also decided to reduce resources under Public Information and Common Support Services even more than the efficiencies he identified, the Secretary-General pointed out. “This presents some challenges, especially at this critical juncture. We are carrying out the important initiatives the Assembly has approved, including Umoja, mobility and the development of the Global Service Delivery Model,” he said. “Nevertheless, we remain committed to exert our best efforts to deliver on these transformational initiatives and all other mandates you have given us.” Mr. Ban also applauded the consensus decisions taken on the revised scale of assessments for Member States for sharing the costs of the regular budget and peacekeeping operations, which is reviewed every three years, as well as the approval of a mobility framework for UN staff. “Today’s consensus action is a strong sign of our ability to work together,” he stated. “We need this spirit of global solidarity more than ever.”The President of the General Assembly, Mogens Lykketoft, said he was very satisfied that the negotiations on the budget and other administrative items were concluded in such good spirit.“With the adoption of the UN budget and the conclusion of the work of the Fifth Committee we come to the end of what has been a remarkable year for multilateralism,” he added. read more

Steve Jobs personally blocks Tawkon iPhone 4 radiation app

first_imgIsrael-based developers of Tawkon, who have already released their app for the Android market last year were keen to exploit the iPhone 4 death grip issue by releasing an iOS version of their radiation detection software. However, Apple immediately blocked the application from appearing in an official capacity so the company has gone underground and released it on the Cydia store instead.Apple must have been pretty serious about blocking Tawkon as it is believed that Steve Jobs himself put a stop to is with two small words “No Interest”.AdChoices广告In the past Apple’s iPhone 4 has suffered the so called death grip issue which dampens the signal strength of the phone. What most people don’t know is that when the phone is in this state it is emitting higher levels of radiation as it attempts to re-acquire a signal. Tawkon is supposed to detect these levels. The video below shows this in action, as you can see the presenter holds the iPhone 4 normally and the app shows a safe level of radiation, she then switches her hand position to the death grip and at this point you can see the radiation levels starting to rise to red.I’m not completely sure how they measure the radiation levels, but it’s something to do with the RF parameters that are extracted from the device. So it measures the proximity of the phone in relation to the user’s hold on the phone, and if he places it next to his ear or on his lap. This apparently then allows them to determine the exposure level.Mind you, as we mentioned earlier the condition is also known about on Android phones and the company even has a Blackberry app that can measure the radiation, so its not just a problem with Apple’s phone.Still, the company feel so strongly that users need to know what levels of radiation they are being exposed to that they have set up a public petition to force Apple to make their app appear in iTunes.Read more at Betanewslast_img read more

Gardaí recorded almost one million more breath tests than they actually carried

first_img Image: Sam Boal/RollingNews.ie Mar 23rd 2017, 12:15 PM Short URL Gardaí recorded almost one million more breath tests than they actually carried out Gardaí said there was no single reason that would account for why they got the figures so wrong. AN GARDA SÍOCHÁNA dramatically miscounted the number of breath tests carried out by gardaí over the past five years, overestimating the actual figure by almost one million.At a press conference today, gardaí said that they had discovered a “significant discrepancy” in the number of breath tests that gardaí actually carried out between October 2011 and December 2016.The Pulse system says that 1,996,365 breath tests were carried out across Ireland during the five year period. However the Medical Bureau of Road Safety Data found the figure was actually 1,058,157.A review of breath test data in the southern region in 2015 revealed discrepancies in garda data and a full review was then launched last year.When a garda takes a breath test, they record the information on a paper form and then input this data into the Pulse system. The 2016 review identified significant gaps in the manually recorded breath test data.Using data provided by the MCRS, it was confirmed that there was a deficit between the Pulse information and the number of breath tests recorded on the devices.New recording systemAsked whether gardaí had been making up figures, Assistant Commissioner Michael Finn said: “I don’t know. Certainly they weren’t recording them correctly”.He said there was no one single reason that may account for this discrepancy.In November last year, a new specific data recording IT upgrade was installed on the Pulse system which required officers to record the serial number of the device used plus the meter reading before and after the checkpoint was concluded – something they did not have to do before this.The data since then is accurate, according to Finn, who said it had also been compared to MBRS data. However, gardaí are now taking down the breath test data that is currently published on their website.‘Deep cultural problems’In a statement, the Policing Authority said that while it is encouraging that information is being put in the public domain, the authority is “alarmed at the scale of the discrepancies”.

It raises serious questions of integrity for the Garda Síochána organisation and combined with previous issues regarding inflated activity levels, erodes confidence in the credibility of Garda data generally.The authority said it raises widespread concern about the way gardaí go about their daily work and about management and supervision. The scale of the discrepancy is “further evidence of deep cultural problems” within the service, it added.“I can’t just blame rank and file gardaí, we all have a responsibility to share here,” Finn told reporters.A fact-finding investigation has been established, led by Superintendent Pat Murray who is based in Athlone. However, Finn said gardaí only began keeping paper-based records with device details and information about who conducted a checkpoint last year.The investigation is an internal one, and the results may not be made public.- Reporting by Michelle Hennessy 62 Comments last_img read more

Brendan Frasier Joins Doom Patrol Superman Returns More DC News

first_imgStay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. The Manta sub! https://t.co/0vd8kJ72Wu— James Wan (@creepypuppet) August 20, 2018Oooh, that looks so cool! One question, though. Does the playset come with that shark? Because it’s awesome and hilarious that they’re still using the same LEGO shark figure from when I was a little kid leaving LEGO bricks around the house for my unsuspecting parents, siblings, and self to step on. It does give us a clearer idea of what Black Manta’s sub will look like in the movie, though it’ll probably be a little less boxy. All I know for sure is that I want it. I’ll fire the laser at the shark and be all like “pew! pew! Raaawwr!”Ahem. Aquaman will release in theaters December 14, 2018.Beyond Aquaman, one of DC’s most exciting upcoming movies is Wonder Woman 1984. We’re still a ways off from seeing a trailer, but the set photos have been amazing and just a bit mysterious. How is Steve still alive (and looking like that) in 1984? We’ll have to wait until the movie comes out to learn the answer. But now we do have an idea of what the movie will sound like. According to Film Music Reporter, Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer will provide the score for the upcoming sequel. Though he didn’t provide the music for the first Wonder Woman, this isn’t his first time writing for the character. Zimmer wrote Wonder Woman’s theme in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. You remember, the score for the one good part of that whole movie.Zimmer is an excellent composer. People make fun of him for the foghorn-like Bwaaaam they think he wrote into Inception. Especially because it was subsequently used in every suspense movie trailer for years afterwards. But for one, he didn’t actually write that. And two, listen to the actual score of any movie he’s written music for. It’s phenomenal. His music is immediately effective, turning onscreen tragedy into an aural punch in the gut. Turning heroic entrances into moments of pure triumph. You remember that Wonder Woman scene in BvS. He also retired from Superhero movies in 2016, according to Collider, so this sequel really must be something special. His music will be an excellent addition to Wonder Woman 1984. We’ll all get to hear it when Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters November 1, 2019.Wonder Woman ’84 looks amazing, and SDCC gave us just a taste of what’s to come. But we will have The Flash premier in a few weeks so now is a good time to get caught up. And Aquaman is just around the corner. Stay up to date on all the ongoings in the DCEU here. Birds of Prey Narrows Down Its Cast, Joaquin Phoenix Jokes & More DC NewsHenry Cavill to Stay Grounded, When the Flash Will Run & More DC Movie News The more we learn about DC Universe, the more exciting the streaming service sounds. Sure, that Titans trailer from Comic Con was incredibly silly in a not-at-all-intentional way, but DC Universe has a ton of other exciting shows coming. There’s Swamp Thing, Harley Quinn, Young Justice and now Doom Patrol. The series follows a particularly strange team of superheroes, who don’t quite fit in with the rest of DC’s roster. The series will follow Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman, Crazy Jane and their leader, Dr. Niles Caulder. Cyborg will also play a big part in this series.The show had already found its Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby) and Cyborg (Joivan Wade). Now, Variety reports, it’s found it’s Robotman: Brendan Fraser. Yes, George of the Jungle/Dudley Do-Right/the guy from The Mummy is joining the DC television universe. Robotman, also known as Cliff Steele, is the only character to have been in every iteration of the Doom Patrol in the comics. He was a race car driver who got into a bad accident and had his brain put inside a robot. Possible spoiler for the upcoming show: In the comics, the crash turned out to have been caused by Dr. Caulder. We’ll see if the show takes that route. It does seem like the kind of thing a DC TV show would bring over.The series will be produced by writer Jeremy Carver, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter and, of course, Greg Berlanti, adding still more to his pile of DC comic book TV shows. Hey, they’ve all been really good, so we’re not complaining. The specifics of the show are still unknown at this point. It’ll probably be some time before we know what kind of tone or format it has. All we know is it’s going to explore some of the weirder aspects of DC lore. As strange as The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow have gotten, that just makes me wonder what this show could possibly do that Berlanti and co. consider so weird.Doom Patrol is set for a 2019 release on DC Universe.Melissa Benoist, Tyler Hoechlin (Photo: Screenshot via CW)Meanwhile, over in the Arrowverse, another famous DC superhero was added to December’s big four-show crossover. The annual event has become the most exciting part of the season for all these shows, even if there’s no way they can top “Crisis on Earth X.” From the sounds of things, they aren’t trying to. This year’s will be a slightly scaled back, more character-focused crossover. But they’re still pulling out the big DC guns. According to IGN, Tyler Hoechlin will reprise his role as Superman in three of the four crossover episodes. He’s not the only one, either. He’ll be bringing Lois Lane along for her first-ever Arrowverse appearance.Casting for Lane hasn’t begun yet, so we don’t yet know what the Arroverse version of the character will look like. Supergirl executive producers are thrilled about the character’s debut, though. “We couldn’t be more excited to introduce Lois Lane to the Arrowverse. This dogged, determined and brave reporter will make for a strong partner to Superman and an amazing addition to our universe of DC characters,” they said in a statement.Supergirl surprised everyone in its second season when it brought Hoechlin on as Superman. While the big screen version was dark and brooding and almost unrecognizable, Hoechlin brought us the optimistic, inspiring version of the hero we all grew up with. He also didn’t take the focus away from Supergirl. It was still Kara’s show, her cousin just showed up for a fun visit. He’s a fantastic Superman, and we’re sure, they’ll cast an equally fantastic Lois Lane. Still just a little more excited to see Ruby Rose as Batwoman, though. Man, December can’t come fast enough.In the far more secretive movie side of DC, we’re all waiting to see more of Aquaman. There’s apparently still some pretty big aspects of the movie they haven’t shown the general public yet, so we’re thirsty for any info we can get. And director James Wan is only happy to tease us. He shared the first couple images of the Aquaman LEGO tie-in toys last weekend, giving us a look at Aquaman, Meera, and Black Manta minifigs as well as the Black Manta sub playset.last_img read more

Medical students from WSU get handson training

first_imgAlex Franke has donned surgical gloves in the past. But the Washington State University medical student had never gone step-by-step through the process of gowning and gloving for a sterile operating room.On Monday, Franke and 13 of his peers learned the meticulous process required for scrubbing into surgery and maintaining a sterile environment from the staff at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center.“It’s mind-boggling how much goes into it,” said Franke, a 23-year-old Seattle resident.The experience was new for fellow medical student Megan Short, too.“I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know,” said Short, who graduated from Skyview High School in 2008.Short and Franke are part of the first class of medical students at WSU’s Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine. The 60 students spend the vast majority of their first two years in the classroom in Spokane, before finishing the program with two years of clinical work in four Washington communities: Vancouver, Everett, the Tri-Cities and Spokane.During each of the first two years, the students — split into four cohorts of about 15 students — have three one-week visits to their communities. The first day of those stays includes some time in the classroom, as well as a workshop. This time around, Legacy hosted the 14 students for a workshop on surgical gowning and gloving and an introduction to suturing.Dr. Richard Green, a plastic surgeon at Salmon Creek Plastic Surgery, led the students through the suturing portion of the workshop, demonstrating how to hold instruments and perform a simple interrupted suture.last_img read more

Grant poised to bring Oscarville well back from the grave

first_imgOver a decade ago, Oscarville’s community well broke down. Then, this summer, the school well failed too. Residents in the small Kuskokwim village have reverted to using rain and river water. Last week the community landed a major grant to fix that. The funding is part of a larger vision for rural Alaska and could pave the way for additional infrastructure.Download AudioIn August, the Oscarville school staff showed up at school, ready to begin the semester, and found the building’s well had collapsed.“Basically this metal pipe, quote unquote, went back to nature.”The Oscarville Pilot Project team gathers in front of the Oscarville community well building. Photo courtesy of CCHRC.That’s James Mikesell, he’s the plant facilities manager for the Lower Kuskokwim School District, or LKSD, and manages the district’s wells.“We have very ferrous, iron-bearing soil all throughout Alaska, so you put a piece of metal in the ground, and it’s going to rust away.”To prevent the school from shutting down, Mikesell and his crew mobilized. They emergency shipped a 500-gallon tank and a high-volume pump from Anchorage and loaded it all on the LKSD boat.“That we lovingly call ‘The Ark.”’Which they drove to Napaskiak, located across the Kuskokwim, and back to Oscarville.“And that had to be done on a daily basis. At least one or two trips a day.”Meanwhile, the school was limiting its water use, and Mikesell and company were rigging an alternative solution.The village has two wells— the community well and the school well.The community well collapsed in the early ‘90s, and residents have been using rain and river water ever since. The school well water is restricted to school use. The community and school district have never merged resources to fund and manage one water well, so the community and school have never shared a water source.That might change. Oscarville recently landed a federal grant of almost a half million dollars to rebuild their water system.“What this has done is opened the opportunity for the school to share their watering point with the whole community, which has not happened in the past.”Jackie Schaeffer is a project specialist with design company WH Pacific and is helping facilitate what’s being called “The Oscarville Pilot Project.”Last year, about a dozen organizations from across the state came together to figure out how to make life better in rural Alaska—which means safer, more comfortable, and less expensive. They want to see how community development can happen as a whole instead of through siloed projects and how that process can empower communities. Ultimately, they want to replicate this system across the state.The team designated Oscarville, located five miles from Bethel, as their test case.“The holistic approach is really to change the perspective of how we do community development, and allowing the community to start seeing how these components all tie together.”Those components include power, housing, transportation, waste and water.“So it’s everything that binds that community together.”This recent grant is bigger than just water, because it could help develop additional infrastructure by acting as a match to future grants.But before any of that can happen, the school needed to fix its water issue.Mikesell and his team salvaged the old community well and stretched a 400-ft. pipe from that well to the school’s water treatment plant to provide the school and two faculty houses with water for the winter.The solution is temporary. The well could breakdown and the line could freeze.“We’ve done everything we can think to do to insulate that line from cold temperatures. But there’s no guarantees with Mother Nature how cold it’s going to get.”If the well fails this winter, then it’s back to hauling water from Napaskiak.The school district and community have from now until spring thaw to figure out how to merge water systems. Meanwhile, the pilot project crew will be working in Oscarville this winter, increasing energy efficiency in the town’s 20 buildings, changing electric meters to deliver lower cost electricity, and hoping the school’s water pipe doesn’t freeze.last_img read more

Justice For Gingers Coming Via New Emojis

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on target ‘Emoji House’ Feud Turns Calif. Neighborhood Pink With RageThis Twitter Bot Mashes Up Emoji To Create Fresh Faces center_img Unicode is offering justice for gingers with new redhead emojis.Scheduled for release in June, the latest set of symbols also features greying and curly hair, as well as bald heads—representative of more manes (or lack thereof).A beta list was released late last year, highlighting possible new faces, people, body parts, clothes, animals, foods, and household items. After careful consideration, Unicode has decided people need access to safety pin, jigsaw, firecracker, and salt icons.AdChoices广告Among the 157 emoji are hot and cold faces; superheroes and supervillains (of both sexes); a llama, hippopotamus, peacock, and parrot; a mango; a chess pawn; and a pirate flag.The Unicode Consortium, meanwhile, is putting an emphasis on Asian culture, with pictures of mooncake, a Chinese baked good traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival. A red envelope, which typically signifies a monetary gift given during the holidays or special occasions; and the Nazar eye-shaped amulet, believed to protect against the evil eye.There is also a distinct nod to science and math, with images of a lab coat, microbe, test tube, petri dish, DNA, and an abacus.Earlier possibilities like a frowning pile of poo and a grinning face with the letter “OK” as eyes were, thankfully, dumped.Emoji 11.0 (previously referred to as Emoji 6.0, but don’t let that confuse you) is expected to roll out to mobile phones in August or September. It is up to individual companies to integrate the icons into their software.Users may be able to change emoji direction in 2018 (via Apple/Emojipedia)It was not announced whether Unicode will fulfill a long-time request that users be able to change emoji direction—a feature that would affect only those emoticons that would “benefit from it most,” like the train, runner, or gun.The corporation is already considering ideas for Emoji 12.0 (scheduled for a 2019 release); proposals must be submitted before the end of March.last_img read more
