Premonsoon showers bring welcome respite to DelhiNCR

first_imgNEW DELHI: Rain lashed parts of Delhi-NCR region in the morning on Wednesday bringing the much-needed relief to those who were reeling under sweltering heat. The rain hit the Delhi-NCR region around 8 am and there are reports that other parts of North India too witnessed heavy rainfall.Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a warning for rainfall and thunderstorm. Rain with thunderstorm was witnessed in parts of Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR) on Wednesday, the weather office said, adding that the weather condition was likely to continue till Friday. The temperature dipped in Delhi on Wednesday after an intense spell of rain lashed the city in the morning, bringing the mercury level down by several notches. The maximum temperature was recorded at 35.7 degree Celsius while the minimum temperature was 22.3 degrees Celsius. A total of 1.4 mm rainfall was recorded till the evening. Thursday will be partly cloudy with chances of light rains, said an India Meteorological Department (IMD) official. According to Skymet, the pre-monsoon rains are because of three phenomenon — Western Disturbance, induced cyclonic circulation and the South Westerly winds. “The rains on Wednesday were because of the back to back Western Disturbance. The Western Disturbance creates cyclonic circulation over Rajasthan. Also, the South Western winds from the Arabian Sea are increasing the moisture,” said, Mahesh Palawat, Vice President, Meteorology and Climate Change at the Skymet Weather. The condition, he said, will continue on and off till Friday at least. The rain will also decrease the heat wave and keep the temperature in control in Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, and parts of Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, Mahesh Palawat said. The humidity at 8.30 a.m. was recorded at 82 per cent. Other states that were affected by the weather were Punjab, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh. There are also chances of the formation of cyclonic circulation over West Rajasthan, West Bengal, and Sikkim as per the IMD. The formation of a cyclonic circulation could lead to heavy rainfall in the regions. The air quality in the national capital improved significantly after this morning’s downpour, authorities said. The level of PM2.5 (particles in the air with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometres) was recorded at 64 and PM10 at 156, the SAFAR said. Delhi’s air quality was oscillating between ‘very poor’ and ‘severe’ for the last few days due to a dust storm in northwest India, which led to a sharp increase in the PM2.5 level. Meanwhile, monsoon showers are expected to hit Kerala coast on June 4 and deliver less rainfall than average in 2019, the country’s only private weather forecasting agency said on Tuesday, dampening prospects of higher farm and economic growth in the $2.6 trillion economies.last_img read more

Hudbays Rosemont mine pushes ahead despite concerns on water impacts

TORONTO — A controversial mine being developed by a Canadian company in Arizona shows the lengths to which the industry will go to feed the world’s unrelenting demand for copper.Hudbay Minerals Inc. and a previous owner have been pushing to get approval for the Rosemont mine for more than a decade amid local opposition and skepticism from regulators about water issues in the semi-arid region.To secure approval for the nearly US$2-billion mine the company has proposed numerous measures to reduce impacts on the environment, including what it says is an “unprecedented” use of dry-stack tailings.The company plans to squeeze water for reuse from about 528 million tonnes of processed ore, the equivalent weight of close to 5,000 CN Towers, to reduce water use by about half compared with its consumption if it were to use conventional tailings.The plan, along with commitments to restock aquifer water and other steps, proved enough for regulators after the Army Corps of Engineers approved the final key water permit for Rosemont earlier this month and the U.S. Forest Service granted the final administrative approval Thursday. Critics, however, say the measures still don’t go far enough, as concerns about water rise in the face of climate change and other countries take measures to further crack down on water use in mining.“This mine is the wrong mine in the wrong place,” said David Steele, spokesman for the Save the Scenic Santa Ritas advocacy group, named for the mountain range where the deposit sits.The group is concerned about a broad range of impacts, including water, for a mine that will include a pit some 1.8-kilometres across and almost a kilometre deep and involve shifting over 1.1 billion tonnes of waste rock.Kathy Arnold, Hudbay’s director of environment, said in a statement that the mine plan was done with the environment and laws in mind, and approval shows they met government requirements.“Regulators grant permits considering their policies. If you can meet those requirements, you get a permit.”There have, however, been disagreements among various regulators through the process as to how well the company’s plan will limit impacts, Steele said.“They’re going to reject years and reams of technical studies that have said this mine threatens the water resources of southern Arizona. That’s a problem.”Assessments by the Environmental Protection Agency raised concerns about water impacts, concluding in a 2017 report that “the Rosemont Mine will cause or contribute to significant degradation of waters of the United States” and that “discharges of fill material into streams and springs to construct the mine site will cause unacceptable adverse impacts to wildlife and wildlife habitat.”The Army Corps of Engineers, which awarded the final water permit, had itself noted in 2016 that the mine would contribute to the degradation of outstanding Arizona waters.Some of the mitigation plans for the company’s use of 7.4 billion litres of water a year, such as restocking the aquifer from the Colorado river, have added complexity and uncertainty because of drought and reduced water levels generally. This past week seven U.S. states reached an agreement to cut water use from the Colorado in the face of a 19-year drought and depleted reservoirs.Even at the stream level though, there can be disagreement on how well a plan actually lessens the impacts of the mine, said Tom Myers, a hydrologic consultant based in Nevada.“A spring is a lot more than simply a source of water at the surface of the ground. It’s an ecosystem. You can’t simply replace water and say, oh, we’ve mitigated it.”Despite the impacts, the company says mining in drier places can be more prudent.“Mining in an arid environment is probably more environmentally appropriate than mining in a wet environment where there could be the risk of acid rock drainage, leaching of materials, or tailings facility structure failure,” said Arnold.While some risks are lessened in drier areas, countries with more extreme water woes are taking measures to crack down on water use.Copper-rich Chile last month said it would more than double the areas protected from mining as copper and lithium miners compete with locals for scarce groundwater.The country also moved several years ago to block Barrick Gold Corp.’s giant Pascua Lama mine high in the Andes over concerns it was damaging glaciers and water supplies.Copper producers in the country have already invested to reduce water use, including BHP’s opening of a US$3.4-billion desalination plant last year to pump water to the world’s largest copper mine. Anglo American installed floating solar panels at a Chilean mine to both generate energy and reduce water evaporation.Companies are responding to water stresses as they expect increasing constraints in the future. A report by CDP, which advocates for environmental impact disclosure, said that by 2030 more than a quarter of operations at the world’s 12 largest miners will be exposed to high water stress areas, especially in mining heavy countries like Chile, Australia and South Africa.The increased concerns come as many mines require increasing amounts of water to process diluted ore, said Luke Fletcher, a senior analyst at CDP.“In the last decade or so we’ve seen lower ore grades and deeper ore bodies, and that will require a lot more water to process.” Companies in this story: (TSX:HBM, TSX:ABX)Ian Bickis, The Canadian Press read more

Security Council welcomes targeted sanctions as useful tool

In a statement to the press following the Council’s open meeting on the so-called Stockholm Process, the President of the 15-nation body, Ambassador Gunter Pleuger of Germany, said that members urged further work to refine the tool of targeted sanctions.They also welcomed Sweden’s initiative to launch the Stockholm Process, the third step in an international course of action dealing with targeted sanctions based on proposals presented by Switzerland and Germany, the Council President said. The initiative “has provided a valuable contribution to the debate on how to strengthen the capacity of the United Nations system and of Member States to implement targeted sanctions,” he added. “A number of concrete recommendations have been put forward to this effect.”Speaking at the outset of the Council’s meeting, Hans Dahlgren, State Secretary for Foreign Affairs of Sweden, presented the Stockholm Process’s final report. He said sanctions were “something between words and war,” and that like other tools, they could be truly effective only if they were sharp enough, focused enough, and designed for the particular operation they were intended to perform.Targeted sanctions were designed to focus specifically on the individuals, or other entities, that are responsible for threats to, and breaches of, international peace and security, Mr. Dahlgren said. Ideally, they would leave other parts of the population unaffected, as well as international trade relations.There had been growing concern over the negative effects of economic sanctions on vulnerable populations and overall societies, he added. The collateral effects of sanctions on third States had been highlighted, and rightly so. At the same time, many key actors intended to be the targets of sanctions have evaded and circumvented those measures by different means. The Stockholm process recommended different strategies, depending on the type of sanctions, to counter sanctions evasion and maintain the accuracy of sanctions.UN Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs, Danilo Turk, stressed the need for enhanced monitoring accompanied by other ways of ensuring that States have the capacity to effectively implement targeted sanctions.”There are a number of key elements that need to be addressed,” he said, “including, among others: improving coordination among all relevant actors; organizing the design and use of sanctions lists; and studying ways by which to probe the deterrent value of targeted Security Council sanctions and their integration into an overall strategy for preventive diplomacy. read more

Cisco posts higher 4Q earnings but says it will cut 4000 jobs

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Cisco posts higher 4Q earnings, but says it will cut 4,000 jobs by Barbara Ortutay, The Associated Press Posted Aug 15, 2013 4:24 am MDT NEW YORK, N.Y. – Cisco’s earnings and revenue grew in the latest quarter as demand for its computer networking equipment increased. But CEO John Chambers called the global economy “challenging and inconsistent” and the company said it is cutting about 4,000 jobs, or about 5 per cent of its work force.Cisco’s revenue guidance for the current quarter was weaker than Wall Street expected, and shares fell sharply in extended trading.The company’s stock fell $2.51, or 9.5 per cent, to $23.87 in extended trading after the results were released. The stock closed up 6 cents at $26.38 in the day’s regular trading session.Cisco Systems Inc. earned $2.27 billion, or 42 cents per share, in the three months that ended on July 27. That’s up from $1.92 billion, or 36 cents per share, a year earlier.Adjusted earnings were 52 cents per share in the latest quarter, squeaking past Wall Street’s expectations by a penny. This figure excludes charges stemming from a patent settlement with TiVo and other one-time items.Revenue rose 6 per cent to $12.42 billion from $11.69 billion.Analysts, on average, had expected revenue of $12.41 billion, according to a poll by FactSet.Cisco’s performance is widely regarded as a bellwether for the technology industry. That’s because the San Jose, California, company cuts a broad swath, selling routers, switches, software and services to corporate customers and government agencies. Cisco’s fiscal quarters end a month later than most other major technology companies, giving it additional time to assess economic conditions.Cisco’s product orders grew 4 per cent year-over-year, the same as in the third quarter of this year. Orders in the Americas region grew 5 per cent, while Asia declined 3 per cent due to economic challenges in the region, Chambers said. Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia increased 6 per cent. On its own, Europe was up 9 per cent.Chambers said that economic conditions in Europe still “vary significantly” by region, with the north and the U.K. showing “very positive progress.”“We remain cautious, however, given the instability of the southern region,” he added.The caution is evident in Cisco’s guidance. For the current quarter, the company said that said it expects revenue to grow 3 per cent to 5 per cent year-over-year. Analysts are expecting $12.72 billion, a 7 per cent increase from last year’s $11.9 billion.Over the long term, Chambers said that the company still expects revenue to grow 5 per cent to 7 per cent, and added that Cisco is in a “better position in the market today than ever before.” read more

Sony buys Michael Jacksons stake in music catalogue for 750M

Sony buys Michael Jackson’s stake in music catalogue for $750M LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Michael Jackson’s estate has agreed to sell its remaining stake in a lucrative music catalogue to Sony Corp. for $750 million, the entities announced Monday.The agreement for Jackson’s half-share of the Sony/ATV Music Publishing catalogue will give the company sole ownership of works by The Beatles, Bob Dylan and other hit making musicians, including Eminem and Taylor Swift.The deal is another posthumous blockbuster deal for Jackson, whose estate has erased the singer’s massive debts through a mixture of new music and movie ventures and re-releases of the singer’s most popular music. Jackson’s estate benefits his mother and three children, known as Prince, Paris and Blanket.“This agreement further demonstrates Sony’s commitment to the entertainment businesses and our firm belief that these businesses will continue to contribute to our success for years to come,” Sony Corp. president and CEO Kazuo Hirai wrote in a statement.The sale does not include rights to Jackson’s master recordings or songs that he wrote, and the singer’s estate will continue to have a stake in EMI Publishing, Inc.“This transaction further allows us to continue our efforts of maximizing the value of Michael’s Estate for the benefit of his children,” the co-executors of Jackson’s estate, attorney John Branca and music executive John McClain, wrote in a statement. “It also further validates Michael’s foresight and genius in investing in music publishing.”Jackson purchased the ATV portion of the catalogue in 1985 for $41.5 million, and he later merged it with Sony. It remained his most lucrative asset at the time of his death in June 2009 at age 50, though by that point Jackson was hundreds of millions of dollars in debt.The deal for Jackson’s half of the Sony/ATV catalogue is expected to close by the end of March. by The Associated Press Posted Mar 14, 2016 10:14 pm MDT Last Updated Mar 15, 2016 at 7:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this March 5, 2009 file photo, US singer Michael Jackson announces that he is set to play ten live concerts at the London O2 Arena in July, which he announced at a press conference at the London O2 Arena.

Two juveniles arrested for Nassau primary school break in security under review

Judge rules Qualcomm violated antitrust law in chip market

first_img Posted: May 22, 2019 Categories: California News, Local San Diego News May 22, 2019 AP, Updated: 11:49 AM AP Judge rules Qualcomm violated antitrust law in chip market NEW YORK (AP) — A federal judge has ruled that Qualcomm unlawfully squeezed out cellphone chip rivals and charged excessive royalties to manufacturers such as Apple in a decision that undercuts a key part of its business.The decision vindicates the U.S. Federal Trade Commission two years after it filed its antitrust lawsuit against the San Diego chipmaker. It’s a potentially costly setback for Qualcomm, as the decision could slash its ability to extract big royalties from phone makers.Qualcomm said Wednesday that it would appeal, suggesting the case could still take a few years to resolve.“We strongly disagree with the judge’s conclusions, her interpretation of the facts and her application of the law,” Qualcomm General Counsel Don Rosenberg said in a statement.The outcome seems likely to reduce the licensing fees paid to Qualcomm, but it’s unclear if device makers will pass on any of their savings and lower their prices. The royalties represent a relatively small portion of smartphone prices that now top $1,000 for some premium models.In this Jan. 9, 2019, file photo a sign advertises 5G at the Qualcomm booth at CES International in Las Vegas. Apple and mobile chip maker Qualcomm have settled a bitter financial dispute centered on some of the technology that enables iPhones to connect to the internet. The surprise truce announced Tuesday, April 16, came just as the former allies turned antagonists were facing off in a federal court trial that was supposed to unfold over the next month in San Diego. The resolution abruptly ended that trial. (AP Photo/John Locher, File)U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, ruled Tuesday that Qualcomm Inc. must renegotiate licensing deals with customers. It must license its patents to rival chipmakers at fair prices and can’t sign exclusive agreements that block competitors from also selling chips to smartphone makers like Apple. Qualcomm must submit to FTC monitoring for seven years.The case has geopolitical ramifications. If Qualcomm suffered a big hit to its profitability, that could mean less spending on research and development — a knock to an American tech icon as the U.S. embarks on a politically sensitive race with China to update to 5G, a new wireless technology.“The Trump administration views Qualcomm as almost the crown jewel for the U.S. in terms of U.S. technology development. Similar to the way China views Huawei,” said Angelo Zine, CFRA analyst. “It will be interesting to see if this gets revisited.”Qualcomm’s rivals are mostly Asian companies, including Huawei, Zine said. The Trump administration has set bruising sanctions against Huawei and pushed European allies not to use the Chinese company’s technology due to national-security concerns of China spying. The U.S. government is also in a spiraling trade war with China.The Trump administration’s attitude to Qualcomm can be seen in a case from last year, when it blocked a Singapore company, Broadcom, from buying Qualcomm over concerns about national security and who would dominate 5G technology.Trade group Computer & Communications Industry Association said Tuesday’s ruling was a win for wireless technology, as it would mean more competition.Qualcomm has justified its “no license, no chips” system as a repayment system for the $40 billion it has spent through several decades working on wireless technology essential to smartphones.Last month Apple and Qualcomm settled a bitter financial dispute centered on some of the technology that enables iPhones to connect to the internet. The deal requires Apple to pay Qualcomm an undisclosed amount. It also includes a six-year licensing agreement that likely involves recurring payments to the mobile chipmaker.Apple had already lost an earlier battle with Qualcomm in March when a federal court jury in San Diego decided the iPhone maker owed Qualcomm $31 million for infringing on three of its patents.Qualcomm shares dropped 12% to $68.18 in afternoon trading.___Liedtke reported from San Francisco.

Baker and McKenzie sees benefits of supporting working carers

first_imgEmployee Benefits Live 2015: Law firm Baker and McKenzie has consolidated its parental policies to enhance its support for working parents.At the beginning of 2015, the organisation brought together its maternity, paternity, shared parental leave and adoption policies to form its ‘new parent policy’, providing staff with greater flexibility.The law firm has tailored its benefits approach according to the demographics of its workforce and its business needs, with the aim of creating a competitive and supportive benefits package to recruit and retain top talent.Speaking at Employee Benefits Live 2015, Debbie Dunkley (pictured), head of reward and employee relations at Baker and McKenzie, explained that the benefits offered by the firm are designed to support all working carers, whether that be staff looking after elderly parents or those with children, for example.Baker and McKenzie offers employees eight appointments a year with provider My Family Care to address carer challenges, such as emergency childcare, eldercare, or at-home support. These sessions can be directly accessed by staff without the need to go through line managers.Further support for working carers includes coaching sessions before, during, and after parental leave, ‘tea and talk’ groups for informal discussions about carer responsibilities and challenges, as well as agile and flexible working policies.The firm also developed ‘Baker Benefits’, provided by Thomsons Online Benefits, which includes carer benefits and additional services that are well-suited to its employee demographic.To help communicate the benefit schemes available to staff, Baker and McKenzie publishes blogs written by employees discussing why certain benefits are important to them.Dunkley explained that providing benefits that support working carers has tangible advantages for staff and for the business. Its latest employee survey, which was conducted with Towers Watson, recorded engagement levels of 88%. Almost all (96%) respondents said they were proud to be associated with the firm, 85% said that the benefits offered meet their needs and 89% would recommend the organisation as a good place to work.The law firm has also seen a 35% increase in benefits take up and a 30% decline in unpaid leave. Its absence rate is down to 1.1% and it has a turnover rate of 11%.Mary Watt, head of human resources and development at Scottish Water, who also spoke at the session, explained that the organisation had viewed the introduction of shared parental leave as a chance to increase equality of opportunity for both male and female staff.Scottish Water, which employs staff across the generational spectrum, wanted to gain a greater insight into employees’ caring responsibilities. Through an engagement survey, it found that around 10% of staff have some form of caring responsibility. Feedback also indicated that employees would like the organisation to increase communication around staff benefits related to working carers.One of the ways in which Scottish Water has addressed the issue is to enhance its agile working policy. This was designed to support all staff and the diverse caring responsibilities they may have, such as children, grandchildren and older relatives.The initiative also aims to increase retention and further develop the talent pipeline. In addition to benefits to the business, such as cost savings and reducing the firm’s carbon footprint, agile working has also helped drive loyalty and engagement.The organisation’s 2015 engagement survey, Your voice, found that 92% of respondents are satisfied with Scottish Water as an employer and 91% are committed to the organisation.last_img read more

4 Indian women forced to work as bar dancers in Dubai rescued

first_imgDubai: Four Indian women who were tricked into working as bar dancers in the UAE flew back home on Friday after being rescued by Dubai Police following a tip-off from the Indian consulate, according to a media report. The four women, from Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, were deluded into believing that they will be working for an event management company. Also Read – EAM Jaishankar calls on European Parliament President David Sassoli Advertise With Us However, when they reached Dubai, their employer locked them in a room and were then forced to work in a dance bar and solicit customers, Consul General of India to Dubai, Vipul, told the Gulf News. According to reports, one of the women managed to send an SOS to her family back home via WhatsApp. As soon as the message was brought to the attention of Vellamvelly Muraleedharan, India’s Minister of State for External Affairs, he alerted the consulate, which then informed Dubai Police.

Among them was a 21-year-old from Hyderabad who was lured to Dubai on the pretext that she would be getting a job in a jewellery store only to end up working in a dance bar.last_img read more

Netflixs Pacific Heat is an Aussie Archer with Less Subversion

first_imgStay on target What to Stream on Netflix This Weekend11 Other Old-School Nick Shows That Should Get Netflix Movies Archer has been renewed through season 10, but unfortunately, that’ll be its last. If you’re not getting enough adult-oriented, action-packed, subversive satire of James Bond-esque films, you can always give Pacific Heat a shot.The new series comes from Working Dog Productions, a group of Aussie comedy producers probably best known for Frontline, which was The Daily Show before The Daily Show was a thing. Most of the voices in the cast come from this group. The show was originally picked up for a run on the Comedy Channel in their home country before getting picked up by Netflix. The 13-episode season premiered on Nov. 27.The show takes place on the Gold Coast of Australia, which is filled with crime. Pacific Heat is a group of operatives tasked with keeping the criminals at bay. They’re covert and highly-trained, but “they do have their own Facebook page.” Rob Sitch, an actor who voices the character Todd Sommerville, describes it as a combination of The A-Team, Hawaii Five-0, and Charlie’s Angels.The comparisons with Archer aren’t unwarranted since they’re pretty obvious. The animation has the same bright, stilted characters, who don’t seem to move unless they’re talking, blinking, or shooting something. Archer makes up for this by playing around with the low-budget appearance of its aesthetics with bombastic fight sequences and noir-esque backgrounds. From the Pacific Heat trailer, there looks to be plenty of action sequences that the animators can play around in. However, the people look off in a way I can’t describe. It might be the small eyes, the superfluous shadow on the faces, and the bodies that seem to be slightly disproportionate.Either way, the humor is similar, although dumbed down. In two clips shared with Geek, Pacific Heat shows off one of its characters, whose primary character trait seems to be that he’s an idiot who doesn’t know what year it is, and the dynamic amongst the group. Characters seem to talk over each other, misunderstand each other often, and talk to some off-screen presence instead of to each other. Plus there’s some old-fashioned racism.I’m an American with little exposure to Aussie comedy, so I’m not sure if there’s something I’m missing. Pacific Heat and the kind of awkward, obvious humor that can stem from over-the-top situations surely has an audience. It’s loud, bright, and uncomplicated. Much of the comedy comes from misinterpretation between the characters and how people as incompetent as them can be tasked with saving us. There has to be more I’m not seeing, right?The series will debut on Netflix on Dec. 3.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Seth Wenig, File) Probe into Manhattan DA’s handling of Weinstein case on hold by The Associated Press Posted Aug 29, 2018 11:48 am PDT Last Updated Aug 29, 2018 at 1:00 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – Gov. Andrew Cuomo has directed the state attorney general’s office to suspend its investigation into whether the Manhattan district attorney mishandled 2015 allegations of sexual misconduct by Harvey Weinstein.A spokeswoman for Attorney General Barbara Underwood confirmed Wednesday that the investigation was put on temporary hold this summer on the orders of the Democratic governor.The spokeswoman, Amy Spitalnick, said the investigation into Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.’s handling of the Weinstein case was suspended to avoid interfering with Vance’s ongoing prosecution of Weinstein. “We remain committed to conducting a comprehensive, fair, and independent review,” Spitalnick added.The attorney general’s office said the suspension of the investigation into Vance’s office would have no effect on the attorney general’s civil rights lawsuit against Weinstein stemming from sexual misconduct allegations by employees of the movie producer’s company.Cuomo directed then-Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in March to investigate Vance’s decision not to prosecute Weinstein on charges that he groped an Italian model in 2015.Schneiderman resigned in May following reports that four women had accused him of sexual and physical abuse. He was replaced by Underwood.Weinstein was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury on rape charges later that month. Additional Manhattan sexual assault charges were brought against him in July.Cuomo’s office says the probe into Vance’s handling of the 2015 allegations was postponed for six months starting in June.“Given the recent indictment and prosecution of Harvey Weinstein by the district attorney, the attorney general’s investigation has been postponed for six months,” Cuomo press secretary Dani Lever said.____This story has been corrected to show that a model accused Weinstein of groping her in 2015, not 2018.last_img read more

Bicommunal bike group leaves noone behind

first_imgYou’re thinking of checkpoints, aren’t you? Well this is barriers, Cycling Across Barriers, and there’s a very definite reason for the choice of word… “This,” says Constantinos Constantinou, “is cycling for all. At CABs, nobody gets left behind!”We’ll find out in a bit just what this inclusivity is all about, and why it’s so important to the island. But let’s start with a little background, because the story behind the non-profit organisation is as fascinating as its mission. Founded in 2012, CABs is a bicommunal effort which offers a series of unique rides round Nicosia within the walls. A joint undertaking, it was founded by Constantinos himself (a thirty-something primary school teacher with a passion for cycling and history) and Aydin Mehmet Ali who, now in her seventies, has long been an enthusiastic advocate of both bicommunality and biking.“Back then I was helping to organise the Home For Cooperation bike rides, while Aydin was a leading light of the Hackney Cypriot Association, a group which – every year – organises a bike ride from Karpasia to Akamas that attracts participants from all over the world,” explains Constantinos. “We shared a real excitement about biking and getting to know our city; about introducing each other to our own ‘sides’ of Nicosia.”The two began to collaborate on the Home For Cooperation rides, bringing residents of both sides together on a number of fascinating guided tours taking in the history, background and culture of the city as a whole. “I’d grown up in a family where the island’s history, it’s politics, were the dinner topics of choice,” Constantinos reveals. “At school I’d been drilled in an official narrative, yet I knew that this wasn’t necessarily correct… When I first started to meet Turkish Cypriots I realised they were the same people as us, with the same stories. It felt like exploring the half of me that had been missing…”The emphasis on stories as a means of togetherness is strong at CABs. Each of the organisation’s weekly rides focuses not just on the scenery, but also on the background, the anecdotes, and the personal tales from residents on both sides of the Green Line. “We generally start at our bike shop at the Municipal Market, head east to Chrysaliniotissa and Famagusta Gate, round the Archbishopric and the mosque, stop at the Paphos Gate and then cross at Ledra Palace. From there, we enter the old city from the north, take in Sarya Square and Saman Bahçe – the first social housing project on the island, built under the British from 1900 onwards – and head to Kyrenia Gate, the Great Khan and Ayia Sofia before crossing back and ending at Phaneromeni. That’s the basic itinerary,” Constantinos explains, “but the best thing about it is the stories we share en route…”Both Aydin and Constantinos are guides, along with friend and teacher Marios Antoniou. For themed trips, guest guides such as Mathieu Devavry (a French artist and graffiti specialist) and Dervish G Zeybek (founder of the region-wide Yuka Blend Street Festival) join the party. “When we focus on specific themes, such as art, Mathieu and Dervish take us to various street art installations: teaching us about the artists and the stories behind their work. Whatever route we take, it is,” Constantinos adds, “a very interactive experience. Not just in terms of the character of our rides – the way the city, its buildings and faces, are constantly transforming – but in the participants’ involvement: the questions they ask and the stories of their own they share along the way!“There’s a real excitement to seeing people come together and share experiences with those they might not otherwise have met. We tend to have about 20 participants per ride – people of all backgrounds and nationalities with varied interests: cycling, community, art, history… It’s a great way to enlarge one’s circle of friends, and break down the barriers…”There’s the word again. Barriers. And here’s where it gets really interesting, because the barriers CABs are surmounting are not just social, but also physical and mental. “Barriers are not only the barbed wire and borders; the word can also relate to gender, age, ethnicity, language, status of immigration, and disabilities mental or physical. So for some, it’s about meeting new people and perhaps overcoming the psychological barrier of crossing; to others, it’s as simple as finally being to explore their home town…”At CABs, inclusivity is key. And that means there’s a bike for every ability. There’s a Flex bike fitted for wheelchair use; a rickshaw, two hand-pedal bikes, two trailers which can be attached to a bike, a tandem, a variety of adult tricycles, and all types of child bicycles and seats. “Just because you’re restricted in terms of movement doesn’t mean you can’t get out and about,” Constantinos reveals. “Our tandem allows us to take those who can’t set out biking round the city; the hand pedal bikes are for paraplegic use; and age is no restriction when you can load a wheelchair onto our specialised Flex. We’re constantly looking at new types of equipment, along with ways to inspire our entire community and give back: more tours, more bikes, the funding to employ more people of varying abilities…“Nobody,” he reiterates, “gets left behind! Especially not those who might otherwise find it challenging to get out into the streets and enjoy the social benefits and integration of our rides. Our mission is to widen the cycling opportunities for those with disabilities, enabling everyone to enjoy cycling along with able-bodied friends and family, while introducing new generations to the historic and multicultural character of our capital city. And that means, whatever the barrier, CABs will find a way to overcome it… I’ve been told,” he concludes, “that coming cycling with us is a life-changing experience. And that’s what we’re aiming for: breaking down those barriers and opening up new worlds!” During the winter season, CABs offers rides every weekend.

Akinci says lifting US arms embargo would affect peace efforts

first_imgLifting the US arms embargo on Cyprus would negatively affect peace efforts on the island Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci said, according to reports on Friday.Akinci had a meeting on Friday morning with the Deputy Assistant Secretary at the US State Department Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs, Matthew Palmer who was on the island for contacts.Media in the north reported that Akinci’s spokesman Baris Burcu said in a written statement that Akinci explained to Palmer why the arms embargo should not be lifted.A possible lifting of the arms embargo would negatively affect the peace efforts in Cyprus, Akinci said according to Burcu.He also conveyed to the US official the views of the Turkish Cypriot side on the issue of natural gas.Akinci told Palmer that the Greek Cypriot side is constantly rejecting the Turkish Cypriot proposal to create a joint gas committee while carrying on its unilateral actions on hydrocarbon exploration. This left the Turkish Cypriot side with no other choice but to take similar actions, he said, according to the statement.According to Burcu, the Turkish Cypriot leader explained in detail to Palmer the reasons for the current impasse in the Cyprus issue. Akinci argued that the reason the efforts by the UN Secretary-General’s special envoy Jane Holl Lute on preparing the terms of reference for the resumption of talks have not borne fruit yet was because the Greek Cypriot side had backed away from past agreements on political equality.In 1987, the US placed restrictions on the transfer of arms and defensive material to Cyprus in an attempt to encourage reunification efforts and avoid an arms race on the island. The government has been trying for many years to see the embargo lifted.Palmer was on the island to discuss bilateral relations with President Nicos Anastasiades, among them, a bill tabled by US Senators Bob Menendez and Marco Rubio providing among other things lifting the US arms embargo on Cyprus.Government Spokesman Prodromos Prodromou said after the meeting Anastasiades and Palmer discussed the progress in efforts to lift the US arms embargo and the new relation between the US and Cyprus this would bring.Anastasiades, during a reception at the US Embassy in Nicosia on the occasion of the US Independence Day also on Thursday, argued that considering the strategic depth of the partnership between the two nations, there was room for further advancing it in areas such as updating the 1984 Agreement for the Avoidance of Double Taxation; Cyprus joining the Visa Waiver Programme; and revoking the US embargo on the sale of military and defence related equipment to Cyprus.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
