The remainder, some USD 6.5 million, would be used for instalment payments for the newbuilding acquisition revealed in mid-December 2018.“In line with the Trust’s ongoing fleet renewal strategy, we are pleased to report this disposal, which will help fund the newbuilding acquisition, will reduce the outstanding bank debt thus improving the Trust’s risk profile while preparing the Trust to take advantage of the expected recovery in the sector,” Roger Woods, Chief Executive Officer of FSLTM, said.last_img read more

Teachers to Vote on Revised Pension Plan Proposals

first_img The plan changes and the additional funding — in either proposalA or B — would preserve the long-term health of the plan forteachers and stabilize pension costs for tax payers. Bothproposals require the government to add about $142 million to theplan to match the value of the indexing given up by teachers. Changes to plan governance are also recommended in each case.Instead of the minister of finance as the plan’s sole trustee,responsibility would shift to a new board of trustees on April 1,2006. As per the previous proposal, the pension plan changes would notaffect retired teachers who are currently receiving pensions.Teachers who retire before July 31, 2006, may choose to havetheir pensions paid under existing rules or the new rules. Teachers will cast their votes on Wednesday, March 9, with anadvance poll to take place on Tuesday, March 8. Nova Scotia teachers will choose between two revised proposals tostrengthen their pension plan in a vote scheduled for earlyMarch, the Nova Scotia Teachers Union and the government of NovaScotia announced today, Feb. 15. The Nova Scotia teachers’ pension partners board has developedtwo funding alternatives for the pension plan to address someconcerns raised by teachers and school boards about proposedpension changes. Those changes were narrowly voted down byteachers on Feb. 1. “Everyone understands that the teachers’ pension plan must beproperly funded,” said Finance Minister Peter Christie.”Government and the teachers agreed in 1993 to share thechallenge of a significant funding shortfall, and we continue towork jointly on a solution.” Proposal A has the same provisions as the Feb. 1 proposal,including a $142-million cash contribution from the province andvariable indexing tied to the level of the plan’s funding.However, the date by which teachers can retire under the currentpension rules is extended to July 31, 2006, to alleviate concernsabout teachers retiring part-way through the school year. Proposal B allows for more predictable indexing provisions thanProposal A. Both teachers and government will increase theirpension contributions by two per cent, effective Aug. 1, 2005, topay for indexing at 50 per cent of CPI, regardless of the planfunding level. Proposal B also gives teachers the option toretire under the current plan rules until July 31, 2006. “Teachers will be asked to choose from one of the two newproposals, as the status quo is not an option,” said Mary LouDonnelly,” president of the Nova Scotia Teachers Union. “Thelonger the pension plan remains underfunded, the harder it willbe to make up the shortfall. We feel strongly that we needed torevisit this issue right away.” Government and the Nova Scotia Teachers Union agreed to meetvarious targets for the pension plan when it was restructured in Although the funding level had reached 81 per cent by 2003, the large number of retiring teachers and other factors were expected to cause the level to decline to less than 60 per cent by 2033, and even more rapidly after that.last_img read more

People close to alcoholics can experience harm

first_imgPeople who are in close proximity or connection with alcoholics can experience harm because of their drinking, according to a study led by an Indian-origin scientist. According to a research, an estimated 53 million adults in the US experienced harm because of someone else’s drinking in the last 12 months. Researchers analysed data of 8,750 adults who answered questions from two databases in 2015 – the National Alcohol’s Harm to Others Survey and the National Alcohol Survey. They found that some 21 per cent of women and 23 per cent of men experienced harm because of someone else’s drinking. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainThese harms included threats or harassment, vandalism, physical aggression, harms related to driving, or financial or family problems, according to the study. Women were more likely to report financial and family problems, whereas ruined property, vandalism, and physical aggression were more likely to be reported by men. There is “considerable risk for women from heavy, often male, drinkers in the household and, for men, from drinkers outside their family,” the researchers said. Additional factors, including age and the person’s own drinking, were also important. People below 25 had a higher risk of experiencing harm from someone else’s drinking. Further, almost half of men and women who themselves were heavy drinkers said they had been harmed by someone else’s drinking.last_img read more

Waymo rolls out autonomous vans without human drivers

first_imgDETROIT – A self-driving car company created by Google is pulling the human backup driver from behind the steering wheel and will test vehicles on public roads with only an employee in the back seat.The move by Waymo started Oct. 19 with an automated Chrysler Pacifica minivan in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler, Arizona. It’s a major step toward vehicles driving themselves without human backups on public roads. The company also said it would launch a ride service to compete with Uber and Lyft.Waymo, which is owned by Google’s parent company Alphabet, is in a race with other companies including Delphi, General Motors, Intel, Uber, Apple and Lyft to bring autonomous vehicles to the public. The companies say the robot cars are safer than human drivers because they don’t get drowsy, distracted or drunk.Google has long stated its intent to skip driver-assist systems and go directly to fully autonomous driving. The Waymo employee in the back seat won’t be able to steer the minivan, but like all passengers, will be able to press a button to bring the van safely to a stop if necessary, Waymo said.Within a “few months,” the fully autonomous vans will begin carrying volunteer passengers who are now taking part in a Phoenix-area test that includes use of backup drivers.The company says the self-driving ride service will be the first application of the technology.“We want the experience of travelling with Waymo to be routine, so you want to use our driver for your everyday needs,” Waymo CEO John Krafcik said prepared remarks announcing the test Tuesday at a conference in Portugal.The company intends to expand the testing to the entire 600-square-mile (1,500-square-kilometre) Phoenix area and eventually bring the technology to more cities around the world. It’s confident that its system can handle all situations on public roads without human intervention, Krafcik said.“Our system runs thousands of checks on itself every second,” he said. “With these checks, our systems can instantly diagnose any problems and pull over or come to a safe stop if needed.”The company also says it has redundant braking, steering, power and computing systems so it never has to rely on a human driver.Sam Abuelsamid, senior analyst for Navigant Research, says Waymo’s tests without a human backup are the first to his knowledge on public roads at normal speeds. The company picked Phoenix because weather conditions are ideal for testing with no snow and little rain, he said, adding that Waymo knows its system isn’t ready yet for inclement weather even with camera, radar and laser sensors.“This demonstrates Waymo’s confidence in the ability of these vehicles to function at least in this environment,” Abuelsamid said.He said he expects General Motors and its Cruise Automation autonomous vehicle unit to be the next to announce testing without human backups, followed by auto parts maker Delphi, which recently acquired Massachusetts Institute of Technology self-driving software startup nuTonomy.Waymo wouldn’t say how many vehicles will be in the initial test or exactly how wide an area it will cover. The test will take place in a small area at first, then spread to portions of five cities and 100 square miles (260 square kilometres) in the Phoenix area. Eventually it will go to whole metro area.The company also wouldn’t say how many minivans are taking part in the initial testing. It has a fleet of 100 autonomous vans in Phoenix, with plans to add 500.Waymo says it has an operations team that can answer questions from the cars’ computers, but the cars will make driving decisions.The company said it has been testing its autonomous systems for the past eight years with more than 5 million miles logged on public roads.Waymo is hoping to infuse its technology into ride-hailing services such as its current partner, Lyft, and big-rig trucking companies. It also intends to license its automated system to automakers such as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which makes the Pacifica minivan.last_img read more

NASAs historic allwomen spacewalk scrapped due to lack of fitting spacesuits

first_imgWashington DC: NASA’s plan to conduct the first all-female spacewalk this month had to be scrapped after the crew aboard the International Space Station encountered an unexpected setback — the lack of well-fitting spacesuits, the US space agency said. NASA astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch were scheduled to conduct the historic spacewalk on March 29 to install powerful lithium-ion batteries for one pair of the station’s solar arrays. Since the space station was assembled in 1998, 214 spacewalks have taken place, all of which had at least one male astronaut. However, after McClain conducted her first spacewalk on March 22, she realised that a medium-size hard upper torso — essentially the shirt of the spacesuit — fits her best. Since only one medium-size torso can be made ready by March 29, Koch will wear it, the US space agency said in a statement. McClain now is tentatively scheduled to perform her next spacewalk on Monday, April 8 with Canadian Space Agency astronaut David Saint-Jacques. These will be the 215th and 216th spacewalks in the history of International Space Station assembly and maintenance. During the first spacewalk of the series, on March 22, McClain became the 13th woman to perform a spacewalk. Koch will become the 14th on March 29. No difference exists in a male’s or female’s suit, but female astronaut usually require a smaller size. The shuttle spacesuit was designed to be made of many interchangeable parts, to accommodate the large number of astronauts with widely varying body sizes. These parts (upper and lower torsos, arms, etc.) are made in different sizes. The body measurements of each shuttle astronaut are taken and recorded. Then the measurements are plotted against the size ranges available for each spacesuit component, according to NASA. The suit components are then assembled. Training suits are usually assembled nine months prior to flight, and flight suits are usually assembled four months prior to flight. We do our best to anticipate the spacesuit sizes that each astronaut will need, based on the spacesuit size they wore in training on the ground, and in some cases astronauts train in multiple sizes, said Brandi Dean, spokeswoman of the Johnson Space Center in Houston.last_img read more

Continued flooding leaves thousands of Tajiks in need of urgent aid UN

Alberta fall legislature sitting to focus on climate change plan

EDMONTON – Alberta’s climate change plan will be front and centre next week when politicians return to the legislature for the fall sitting.Government house leader Brian Mason said Thursday there will legislation and new details on a variety of previously announced environmental initiatives.“This fall we will continue passing legislation to bring our groundbreaking climate leadership plan to life,” Mason told reporters at the legislature.“It’s a plan which diversifies our economy and creates new jobs while protecting our energy industry.“It’s founded on the conviction that this province can be an environmental leader among the world’s energy producers.”Premier Rachel Notley’s government is to introduce legislation to cap annual oilsands greenhouse gas emissions at 100 megatonnes.There will be more details on the government’s pledge to end coal-fired electricity generation and introduce more renewable energy sources.“We’ve set a target of ensuring 30 per cent of the province’s electricity comes from renewable sources like wind, hydro and solar by the year 2030,” said Mason.“In this session, we will introduce legislation to shape the required framework to make that happen.”Mason said the province will continue to fight for a pipeline to get Alberta’s oil a better price on global markets.Parts of the climate change plan have already passed and will soon be put into practice. On Jan. 1, a broad-based carbon tax kicks in, raising prices of gas at the pumps and home heating bills.Low and middle income Albertans will get some or all of that money back through rebates.On the economic front, Mason said there will be an update on Alberta’s plan to create jobs.There will also be two new tax credits to help spur and diversify the economy.One credit will offer a 30 per cent credit to investors who put up venture capital for small businesses researching and developing in a variety of fields including digital animation, tourism, video post production, and interactive digital media.The other credit will return 10 per cent of a corporation’s costs associated with buying capital assets, including machinery and buildings.There will be changes to clarify and expand the ability of credit unions to loan to small and medium-sized businesses.Mason said there will be more announcements on the province’s plan to broaden and improve education programs and opportunities.The sitting begins Monday.Mason said there will be about 15 bills introduced, with the sitting ending around Dec. 8.“It’s going to be a very busy session,” he said.The sitting comes against the backdrop of a province still in the economic doldrums due to the long-term slump in oil prices.The slump has tossed tens of thousands of Albertans out of work and has ballooned the provincial budget deficit.The deficit this year is projected to be $10.9 billion.Opposition Wildrose Leader Brian Jean said his team will focus on the economy and the impact of the climate rules on it.“Right now Albertans are very concerned about the economy, they’re very concerned about the carbon tax, and they’re very concerned about the accelerated shut-down of coal,” said Jean.“People need to have jobs to have a better quality of life, and right now the policies of the NDP have seriously fettered our current economy and our future economy.” by Dean Bennett, The Canadian Press Posted Oct 27, 2016 3:58 pm MDT Last Updated Oct 27, 2016 at 6:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Alberta fall legislature sitting to focus on climate change plan read more

Garry Cook Man City held talks with John Terry in 2009

first_imgFormer chief executive Garry Cook confirmed that Manchester City held talks with John Terry over summer transfer from Chelsea in 2009Under new billionaire owner Sheikh Mansour who had taken control 12 months earlier, the big-spending City approached Chelsea over a move for their captain.The Blues permitted City to begin talks with Terry and a five-year contract with a weekly wage of £200,000 was offered to the centre-back, which he eventually turned down.“We went through the process [of signing Terry],” Cook told Sky Sports.“[Chelsea chief executive] Peter Kenyon was there at the time and we had conversations with him, saying we’d like to do it and we’d like to have a conversation.“I think he was probably more confident that he [Terry] wasn’t going anywhere.“We had conversations with John and he decided to stay where he was, and quite rightly so.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“But there was never a document ready to sign.”Later on, Terry confessed he had used City’s interest as a bargaining chip in order to earn himself a new contract with Chelsea – which doesn’t surprise Cook.“There were players out there who were using us as a stalking horse and that’s the game,” he added.“If you want to get a better contract in your renewal with the club you’re with, then you’ve got to try and raise a market, and that’s what agents would do.“The reality is, would we have liked a lot of them to come? Yes. But the truth is, some of them were a little bit smoke and mirrors.”Terry made 717 appearances for Chelsea in a 19-year stay and won five Premier Leagues and FA cups along with titles like the Champions League and Europa League.After spending last season at Aston Villa, Terry announced his retirement from football during the summer and now plans to embark on a managerial career.last_img read more

Redmi Note 7S price in India confuses buyers Is it worth buying

first_imgXiaomi released the Redmi Note 7S in India on Monday, making it their third Redmi Note this year. This budget smartphone comes as a rebranded version of Redmi Note 7, which was released in China recently. The Redmi 7S starts at Rs. 10,999 and comes in three colours – Ruby Red, Onyx Black and Sapphire Blue.Redmi Note 7S retains the 48-megapixel camera from the Redmi Note 7 and looks nearly the same, barring the notch. Considering the specs, it provides good value for the money. However, Xiaomi has faced some scepticism from the public because of their recent launches. Just Rs. 1,000 apart, the Note 7S sits right between the Rs. 9,999 Redmi Note 7 and the Rs. 11,999 Redmi Note 7 Pro.Redmi Note 7S sports a glass back with the Aura design. The 6.3-inch full-HD+ (1080 x 2340 resolution) drop notch display, which is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, clocking up to 2.2GHz and an Adreno 512 GPU takes care of the graphics. A large 4,000mAh battery backs up the phone and ensures a day-long charge, but real-world tests are subject to change. Its top-end model is priced at Rs. 12,999 and sports 4 gigabytes of RAM and 64GB storage capacity. The cheaper model shaves RAM to 3GB and storage to 32GB. The Xiaomi Redmi 7S has about the same specs as the Note 7. Here’s what is Xiaomi up to.Redmi India – TwitterIt has been reported that the 48-megapixel camera takes only 12-megapixel photos on Auto mode. Its potential is unlocked in the Pro mode, which has a smattering of dials and cranks to change the aperture and other variables. The front camera sits in a drop notch and features a 13-megapixel sensor with AI portrait mode support.The phone connects using a Type-C port and supports Quick Charge 4. The hybrid dual SIM/microSD slot is a neat addition. The Redmi Note 7S features a fingerprint sensor on the back, AI Face unlock and an IR blaster. A P2i splash-resistant coating means the phone can handle light rain but don’t consider dropping it in a bucket full of water. Additionally, it ships with dual channel Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G VoLTE, GPS, and an FM radio. It has a light sensor, a proximity sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass.Is it worth buying?If considering between the Redmi Note 7 and Note 7S, we would recommend saving the extra Rs. 1,000 and going for the Note 7. The Redmi Note 7 Pro is a pretty good option for those willing to shell out Rs. 13,999 for the better processors and camera. Is Redmi Note 7 the new-age Nokia 3310?

Work hard but dont expect immediate reward Indian President tells students

first_imgIndia’s President Ram Nath Kovind told students at the University of Cyprus (UCy) that although technology has opened a new world of learning and has made it easier to accomplish tasks, they should continue to work hard without expectation of immediate reward in pursuit of excellence.The Indian president concluded an official visit to Cyprus on Tuesday with a lecture at UCy entitled Youth, technology and ideas: Shaping the contours of the 21st century, and a ceremony unveiling the bust of Indian poet and Nobel Laureate in Literature Rabindranath Tagore, Kovind.Of UCy, Kovind said “the works of Nobel Laureate Christopher Pissarides and the cutting-edge research being undertaken in this campus are truly inspirational.”“Technology, indeed, has opened a whole new world of learning,” he said, adding that “it has also made it easier to accomplish our tasks.”“You should, however, not get carried away by the instantaneous nature of technology. You must continue to work hard without expectation of immediate reward,” he told university students.The pursuit of excellence, he stressed, “should be the key factor that should dominate the minds of future generations.”Kovind quoted Tagore who said that “the highest education is that which does not merely give us information, but makes our life in harmony with all existence.”“These words of wisdom are more relevant today when we try to find our balance in the new world of technology and environmental action,” he pointed out.On the challenge of climate change, he said the problem was not insurmountable.“India and Cyprus have lived in harmony with nature for centuries. It is time for us to bring back our sustainable practices into our modern lives. New age technology combined with the wisdom of the past can solve many of our ecological problems.”Referring to the celebrations to mark the 150th birthday of Mahatma Gandhi on October 2, India’s President said “his message of peace, compassion and justice may always guide us as we seek to create a better world for ourselves and for others.”UCy collaborates with five higher education institutions and research centres in India to promote research and innovation and encourage academic and student mobility, its rector, Constantinos Christophides said in an introductory address.He said Tagore’s bust will give students and guests and the community the opportunity to learn about the first non-European to win the Nobel prize in Literature.“It will be a stimulus for discussion of literature, social sciences and the importance of culture in general,” he added.Universities, he stressed, “are places challenging peoples’ limits, spirits and minds, daring people to put their imagination in practice.”“Don’t limit a child to your own learning for he was born in another time,” he noted.You May LikeForbes.comPublic Schools Are in Major Decline in These 10 StatesForbes.comUndoHousediver25+ Superfoods That Dissolve Artery PlaqueHousediverUndoHealth & Human Research11 Drinks To Never Take With ArthritisHealth & Human ResearchUndo Limassol police investigating attempted murderUndoCyprus’ Dothraki warriorUndoBritain preparing for a no-deal BrexitUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
