For his efforts in the areas of health and the environment, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will receive an award for leading the city’s response to Hurricane Sandy.In addition to Vice President Biden, Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan; Nicholas Kristof, columnist, The New York Times; Mary Robinson, former president of Ireland and president, Mary Robinson Foundation for Climate Justice; and M. Sanjayan, lead scientist, The Nature Conservancy are slated to make appearances.The awards show will also feature performances by The Roots, Elvis Costello, Malian musician Fatoumata Diawara, and the musical producer Randy Jackson.Each year, honorees are nominated by the CGI community based on their visionary leadership, demonstrated impact, and sustainable and scalable work in solving global issues. The 2013 Clinton Global Citizen Award recipients include the following outstanding leaders from government, civil society, the private sector, and philanthropy: Leadership in Public ServiceMichael R. Bloomberg, Mayor, City of New YorkMichael R. Bloomberg was elected the 108th mayor of the City of New York in 2001. He began his career in 1966 at Salomon Brothers, and after being let go in 1981, he began Bloomberg LP, a startup financial news and information company that now has more than 15,000 employees around the world. As mayor, Bloomberg has cut crime by 35 percent, revitalized the waterfront, implemented ambitious public health strategies, including the successful ban on smoking in restaurants and bars, and expanded support for arts and culture. His education reforms have driven graduation rates up by more than 40 percent since 2005. The Mayor’s economic policies have helped New York City avoid the level of job losses that many other cities experienced during the national recession. In fact, New York City has gained back more than 260 percent of the jobs lost during the national recession, and even surpassed the previous record for the number of private-sector jobs, which had been set in 1969. Mayor Bloomberg attended Johns Hopkins University and Harvard Business School, and is the father of two daughters, Emma and Georgina.

OSU ended its season with a fourth-place finish in the second session of the NCAA Championship Semifinals Friday at Gwinnett Arena in Duluth, Ga. The Buckeyes posted a score of 196.525, leaving their first trip to the NCAA Championship Semifinals since 1990. “I’m really happy with the way the team handled the pressure of competing at the NCAA Championship,” Fagan said in a press release. “They did what we have done all season and it feels great to be ranked in the top 10. I am so happy for our seniors and the leadership they have shown all year. It has been a history-making year for the program, and I am so proud of what we accomplished.” Fagan wasn’t the only one reaping the awards. Assistant coaches Bill Lorenz and Meredith Yonushonis were named Co-Assistant Coach of the Year and sophomore Sarah Miller earned second-team All-America honors. The Buckeyes finished .625 points short from qualifying for the Super Six Team Finals. Alabama (197.675), Florida (197.650) and Arkansas (197.150) advanced to the team finals Sunday. OSU started on bars in the first rotation, recording a 48.975. Two seniors led the way for the Buckeyes; posting a pair of 9.825s were senior co-captain Taylor Jones and senior Alyssa Marohn, each tying for 20th place. Senior Casey Williamson scored a 9.80. Junior Colleen Dean and sophomore Victoria Aepli finished out the score with a 9.775 and 9.750, respectively. In the second rotation, the team moved to beam, recording a 49.225. Miller led the Buckeyes with a 9.900 to tie for sixth place. Senior co-captain Nicole Krauter, sophomore Melanie Shaffer and Marohn all finished with a 9.850, tying for 17th. Shaffer’s score was a season high on the event while Freshman Sarah Grady scored a 9.775. On floor, the Buckeyes drew a pair of 9.850s from Dean and Miller, who tied for eighth place and led the team to a 49.150 on the event. OSU’s scores on floor were spread out by .50 points, with Jones and Shaffer scoring a 9.825. Sophomore Alex DeLuca and Williamson each posted a 9.80. OSU finished on vault, recording a 49.175, which was .10 shy from the season high in the event. A trio of 9.850s from Krauter, Marohn and Miller led to a tie for 17th. Dean recorded a 9.825 and Jones rounded out the team score with a 9.80. The only all-around competitor for OSU, Dean scored a 38.575. read more

A Prison Service spokesman said: “Specially trained prison officers and staff from the emergency services have successfully resolved an incident involving a number of prisoners at HMP Bedford.”An investigation into this incident will take place. We are absolutely clear that prisoners who behave in this way will be punished and could spend significantly longer behind bars.”There were no injuries to prison staff but two inmates were treated for injuries that were not thought to be serious.

When I was inside I had to break up fights because there wasn’t enough staff.”Bedford Prison is falling apart, there’s cockroaches everywhere, the floors peeling off… it’s an absolute state. When you put people under that much strain they’re going to bite.”They took batons, raided safes with all the drugs and phones, and merged A and B wings. Boys were getting locked in their own cells.” Emergency services were at the sceneCredit:Geoff Robinson  Mr Johnston said he spent four months inside the jail for dealing drugs and got out in October.HMP Bedford, which has been on its current site since 1801, holds around 500 inmates, according to a HM Inspectorate of Prisons report published in September. Specialist riot officers were deployed at the category B prison in Bedford town centre, with police cordoning off an area outside and emergency services on stand-by.Some guards were forced to retreat to a “safe place”.Unverified footage supposedly from inside the facility posted online revealed chaotic scenes with scores of prisoners shouting and bellowing in walkways and gangways.Former inmate Tyler Johnston, 21, said prisoners took batons, raided safes containing phones and drugs, and locked other prisoners inside cells during the riot.

Léruption solaire a déclenché de superbes aurores boréales

Les habitants de la Norvège, la Finlande ou de la Suède ont pu assister ces dernières nuits à un magnifique spectacle naturel. Les aurores boréales qui ont illuminé le ciel des pays scandinaves ont été déclenchées par une forte éruption solaire survenue dimanche dernier. Selon l’Administration nationale des océans et de l’atmosphère (NOAA), il s’agirait de la plus forte éruption solaire observée depuis 2005.

Canadians Create Worlds First 3DPrinted Camper

first_img Prepare To Be Amazed By This Tiny Working Lego PianoPlug a Floppy Drive in to Your Android Phone For a Retro Storage Boost Nine days and hundreds of feet of plastic filament later, a team from Canada has succeeded in creating the world’s first 3D-printed camper. Printing wrapped up last week in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.That’s just a scale model at the top, of course. The real thing is much larger. In fact, it smashed the world record for the largest indoor 3D print. The previous best was a respectable 144 cubic feet. The camper nearly tripled that volume at 507 cubic feet.3D printing a camper gives it a couple major advantages over traditional manufacturing methods. One is that it’s seamless, which greatly reduces the risk of water infiltration. Given how much people generally spend on a camper and how long they plan to own them, there should be plenty of demand for one that’s not as susceptible to mildew and rot.The other big advantage is that this thing is about as customizable as a camper could ever get. As long as your vision can be translated into an STL file for plotting, pretty much anything goes. One that creator Randy Janes is particularly excited about: a hatch in the floor for ice fishing.Hey, there’s no reason you should limit your camper use to the summer months… especially when you really only get two and a half of them a year between the annual thaw and freeze. A camper is a big investment, and Jones clearly believes you should get your money’s worth.There is one significant downside: 3D printing the 500-plus cubic foot camper took about nine days. That’s no problem for a proof-of-concept, but it’s a tad slow for commercialization. Now that the team has proven it’s doable, they can focus on shortening the delivery window.Janes is hopeful that he’ll have the first batch of 3D-printed campers ready for sale before the end of this year.

Genting Malaysia sues Disney Fox over breach of theme park contract

RGB expecting strong 2019 despite second quarter revenue, profit decline According to report by Reuters, the lawsuit accuses Disney of wanting to terminate the contract because it does not want to be associated with a gaming company. It also says that Fox issued a default notice in a bid to terminate the contract which was “entirely consistent with Disney wanting to kill the deal.”“Given that [Fox] had no right to terminate the Agreement, Fox and Disney are liable for what will exceed a billion dollars in damages attributable to the bad-faith behavior of both Fox and Disney,” the complaint says.“Seller’s remorse – first by Fox and later by Disney – is not a valid ground for terminating an agreement.”The lawsuit says it was Disney that first planted the seed that the contract should be terminated.“Unlike Fox, which was perfectly happy to have the park situated a stone’s throw from the casinos of Resorts World Genting so long as it could continue to extract financial concessions from Genting, Disney wanted no association with a gaming company,” it says.Genting states that it has already invested around US$750 million in the project.last_img read more

Lenovo Yoga C930 vs LG Gram 2in1 2019 Which laptop should you

first_img PC Memory Best 2-in-1 for traveling light 1.8GHz Intel Core i7-8550U Sarah Tew/CNET 512GB SSD Get what you get or get what you wantThe LG Gram 2-in-1 is currently available in a single configuration from Best Buy for $1,500.  Fortunately, it’s a good one and is in line with Lenovo’s pricing for the C930. (There’s a spec chart below for comparison.) The price also includes LG’s active pen and a USB-C-to-Ethernet adapter. The Yoga, on the other hand, starts at around $1,100 and can be configured with an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, up to 16GB of memory, up to a 1TB PCIe-NVMe SSD for storage and a 4K UHD display. Lenovo also frequently has deals on its site, so depending on when you buy you could end up getting a better configuration for less. For example, at the moment you can get the C930 with a Core i7 and 16GB RAM for less than one with a Core i5 and 8GB RAM.  The LG Gram weighs noticeably less than its similarly sized competition. For business travelers, commuters or students, the lighter load will likely be appreciated. With its great battery life and USB-C charging, you can likely get through a daily commute without carrying its power supply, too. Plus, since LG gave it a full-size HDMI out and USB-A ports, you won’t need as many adapters.  16GB DDR4 SDRAM 2,400MHz Post a comment 1.8GHz Intel Core i7-8565U 256GB SSD Storage Lenovo Yoga C930 Best 2-in-1 and touchscreen laptops 5 ways you should be using your two-in-one laptop Best laptops, desktops and tablets for creatives in 2019 Read CNET’s review 128MB Intel UHD Graphics 620 45 Photos Tags Best all-around premium 2-in-1 Within LG’s deep portfolio of appliances, TVs, soundbars and phones is its line of Gram laptops. Available in 13.3-, 14-, 15.6- and 17-inch sizes, they all have ultralight bodies for their sizes and exceedingly long battery lives (though never as long as LG claims). This year LG added its first Gram 2-in-1 to the lineup by essentially putting 360-degree hinges on its Gram 14 laptop, in turn making it one of the lightest — if not the lightest — 14-inch two-in-one laptop available. It’s a good half pound less than our current top-rated two-in-one of that size, the Lenovo Yoga C930. With similar features, components and pricing, too, the LG Gram 14 2-in-1 is stiff competition for the Yoga C930. Here’s how they measure up to each other. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of products featured on this page. Sarah Tew/CNET Weighing the design differencesWhile the Yoga C930 and Gram 14 2-in-1 are roughly the same size, the latter is lighter, which makes it slightly more comfortable to use as a handheld tablet. That comfort extends to the included Wacom AES 2.0 Pen with 4,096 pressure levels and tilt detection. It’s a full-size pen unlike the Yoga’s, which is about the size of Samsung’s S Pen and significantly smaller than the Wacom. The Yoga’s advantage here is that the pen stores and charges in the body; there’s no storage or holder for the LG’s pen. (Both pens worked well, by the way.)Pen storage is admittedly a small issue and likely not a dealbreaker on its own. There are a bunch of these little differences that could sway you one way or the other. 024-lg-gram-2-in-1LG Gram 14 2-in-1 is well connected.  Sarah Tew/CNET Lenovo went with two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports and a single USB-A port, for instance. There’s a combination mic-headphone jack, too, but that’s it. This means you’ll need an adapter or dongle for other connections. LG, despite having similarly limited space, gives you two USB-A ports, a microSD card slot and HDMI output as well as a USB-C 3.1 port and includes an Ethernet adapter.  When it comes to keyboards, neither laptop’s keys have a lot of travel. The Yoga’s ultimately proved to be more comfortable and accurate, at least for touch typing, because LG used smaller Enter and Backspace keys that resulted in missed keystrokes.  Lenovo Yoga C930 Now playing: Watch this: Display size/resolution Share your voice 128MB Intel UHD Graphics 620 Related stories The C930 might not be as light as the LG or have its port assortment, but it has other design advantages like a better keyboard, a garaged active pen, a webcam privacy shutter and a speaker system that actually sounds good. Multiple configurations are available from retailers and direct from Lenovo starting around $1,100 so you can get performance that fits your budget. Two other features might help the Lenovo rise above the LG for you. If you’re concerned about web cam privacy, the Yoga has a small switch that slides a shutter across the camera to block it. There’s also a function key to instantly cut the built-in mics. Then there’s the Yoga C930’s speaker system. Lenovo used the laptop’s 360-degree hinge as a rotational soundbar. Paired with its Dolby Atmos audio processing, the C930 has unusually good sound for its thin chassis. The Gram’s speakers are fine in a pinch, but it’s no surprise LG built in headphone-specific DTS processing. 12GB DDR4 SDRAM 2,133MHz Networking LG Gram 14 2-in-1 802.11ac Wi-Fi wireless; Bluetooth 4.1 27 Photos Windows 10 Home (64-bit) Graphics More than beginner’s luck  The Gram 2-in-1 might be LG’s first for the category, but it doesn’t show in the final product. LG’s taken everything that worked for its clamshell laptop designs and made it work as an ultraportable convertible. It also carried over a couple things that were less desirable like its keyboard layout and thin-sounding speakers, which are two areas where Lenovo’s Yoga C930 shines. And with the options to get the C930 in more than one configuration from more than one retailer, the Lenovo has broader appeal while delivering similar performance and battery life.  Lenovo Yoga C930 CPU 14-inch 1,920×1,080-pixel touch display Laptops 2:06 Operating system Sarah Tew/CNET 14-inch 1,920×1,080-pixel touch display 0 802.11ac Wi-Fi wireless; Bluetooth 5.0 Read CNET review Lenovo’s Yoga C930 is the ultraportable 2-in-1 we’ve… LG Gram 14 2-in-1 Power drawBoth the LG and Lenovo delivered strong performance for general home and office uses such as word processing, web browsing and email. Want a two-in-one for jotting down notes, putting together presentations or sketching a design? Either of these will do the trick. They also have enough muscle to push through more demanding work, assuming it’s not too graphics intensive. The integrated graphics can handle casual gaming at low settings as well as basic photo and video edits. On our benchmark tests, the configurations we reviewed performed roughly the same given their slight processor and RAM differences. Battery performance was similar, too, on our online streaming video test.

It can’t be done, ” said the noted lawyer.Kamal, also the president of Gono Forum, said there is no disagreement among the people over some basic issues and they all believe that they are the owners of the country.”Nobody wants a monarchy here and nobody wants to see any king or queen here. Bengalee is such a nation which will never accept any king or queen in the country.”He said people now feel some sort of helplessness as the government is not showing respect for them as the owners of the country.”But no one should feel helpless when there are 17 crore people who can play the role of owners of the country. Those who think they have become the country’s owners dividing people they are making a mistake.”The Oikya Front chief said the country’s people ousted the autocratic rulers, including HM Ershad, through their united efforts in the past. “We’ll also get united now and bring the country under our occupation through a democratic and constitutional process.”Mentioning that the country was liberated based on unity of people; he said people’s ownership of the country will also be restored now based on unison among them.Speaking at the programme, JSD president Abdur Rob recalled the memory of hoisting the country’s flag for the first time on 2 March, 1971.Describing the current government as autocratic one, he said it will not leave power easily unless people come up with a united and strong resistance against it.Nagorik Oikya convener Mahmudur Rahman Manna said Awami League has snatched people’s voting rights on 29 December by using the state machinery.”The Awami League which liberated the country under the leadership of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujiubur Rahman doesn’t exist in the country. The current Awami League is an associate body of police league.”He said people on Thursday sent out a message to the government that they do not want any election under it by not going to polling stations to cast their votes in the by-polls to Dhaka North City Corporation’s mayoral post.last_img read more

if we want life let us give life; if we want opportunities let us provide opportunities The yardstick we use for others will be the yardstick which time will use for us The Golden Rule also reminds us of our responsibility to protect and defend human life at every stage of its development This conviction has led me from the beginning of my ministry to advocate at different levels for the global abolition of the death penalty I am convinced that this way is the best since every life is sacred every human person is endowed with an inalienable dignity and society can only benefit from the rehabilitation of those convicted of crimes Recently my brother bishops here in the United States renewed their call for the abolition of the death penalty Not only do I support them but I also offer encouragement to all those who are convinced that a just and necessary punishment must never exclude the dimension of hope and the goal of rehabilitation In these times when social concerns are so important I cannot fail to mention the Servant of God Dorothy Day who founded the Catholic Worker Movement Her social activism her passion for justice and for the cause of the oppressed were inspired by the Gospel her faith and the example of the saints How much progress has been made in this area in so many parts of the world How much has been done in these first years of the third millennium to raise people out of extreme poverty I know that you share my conviction that much more still needs to be done and that in times of crisis and economic hardship a spirit of global solidarity must not be lost At the same time I would encourage you to keep in mind all those people around us who are trapped in a cycle of poverty They too need to be given hope The fight against poverty and hunger must be fought constantly and on many fronts especially in its causes I know that many Americans today as in the past are working to deal with this problem It goes without saying that part of this great effort is the creation and distribution of wealth The right use of natural resources the proper application of technology and the harnessing of the spirit of enterprise are essential elements of an economy which seeks to be modern inclusive and sustainable "Business is a noble vocation directed to producing wealth and improving the world It can be a fruitful source of prosperity for the area in which it operates especially if it sees the creation of jobs as an essential part of its service to the common good" (Laudato Si 129) This common good also includes the earth a central theme of the encyclical which I recently wrote in order to "enter into dialogue with all people about our common home" (ibid, See Photos of Pope Francis’ Historic Visit to U.
