Annan meets with envoy from Myanmar calls for Daw Aung San Suu

In a statement issued after a meeting at UN Headquarters in New York between the Secretary-General and U Khin Maung Win, Deputy Foreign Minister and Special Envoy of the Union of Myanmar, Mr. Annan said he expressed his “grave concern” about the welfare of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and other leaders of the National League for Democracy (NLD), who have been held incommunicado since the incident of 30 May.The Secretary-General said that during the meeting, which also included his own Special Envoy for Myanmar, Razali Ismail, he emphasized that they should be released without further delay and that it was the responsibility of the Myanmar Government to ensure the safety of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her NLD colleagues, in or out of detention.”I remain convinced that the only way to build durable peace in Myanmar is to release the detainees, ensure their political freedoms, and begin substantive dialogue with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi immediately. To that end, I requested that the Government take the initiative and meet with her,” the Secretary-General said.”The Special Envoy promised me that he would convey these messages to Senior General Than Shwe, the Chairman of the State Peace and Development Council and Prime Minister of the Union of Myanmar,” he added.Speaking later to reporters, the Secretary-General was asked if the Security Council would take up the issue of Myanmar. “It is not an item on the Council’s agenda,” he replied, adding that he was not aware that the 15-nation body would take it up. “But I have sent a message to the General Than Shwe and now we’ll wait to see what reaction we get.”Asked if he would refer the matter to the Council, the Secretary-General said that he did not have immediate plans to do so. “But we’ll see how things evolve,” he said. “I’m not saying it’s excluded. I think all things are going to be on the table very soon, but I have sent a message to General Than Shwe.” read more

Ucore secures rights to SuperLig Molecular Recognition Technology MRT

first_imgUcore Rare Metals has entered into an agreement with IBC Advanced Technologies to acquire the exclusive rights to IBC’s SuperLig® Molecular Recognition Technology (MRT) for rare earth separation and recycling applications, in addition to tailings processing applications. Under the terms of the license agreement, Ucore has agreed to pay a one-time licensing fee to IBC in the amount of $2.9 million. The payment is subject to the delivery by IBC of a fully operational rare earth SuperLig pilot plant and due diligence review by Ucore. The pilot plant will be constructed at SepraMet, IBC’s wholly owned subsidiary in Houston, Texas.Under the terms, upon the satisfactory completion of the foregoing terms and conditions at Ucore’s discretion, the parties agree to constitute a joint venture for the purpose of marketing and purveying SuperLig products and services exclusively to world markets in the rare earth, recycling and tailings processing sectors. The joint venture will involve using IBC’s proprietary technology regarding advanced metals separation and recovery technology on a royalty free basis and applying it to the REE, recycling and tailings processing markets worldwide. Ucore will have a controlling interest (60%) in the Joint Venture, while IBC will retain a 40% beneficial interest.Greater than 99% of the REEs, as a group, are recovered in a clean separation from other metal components and individual selective separations of the REE’s are then made. Proprietary MRT SuperLig resins use many fewer stages than traditional SX processes.SuperLig resins are produced using proprietary manufacturing procedures. Simplified separation process delivers pure individual elements requiring fewer separation stages.“This is an important step for Ucore in obtaining the capabilities of an integrated provider of rare earth products from mine to metal,” said Jim McKenzie, President & CEO of Ucore. “MRT is a remarkable technology, already used extensively around the world in non-REE mining applications, where advanced SuperLig circuits are currently used to liberate high purity PGM’s and specialty metals. We’re delighted that IBC, the recognised world leader in the highly specialized field of MRT, has now partnered with Ucore to bring this extensively proven separation platform to the rare earth sector. Perhaps most importantly, our licensing arrangement includes the application of SuperLig technology to the world recycling and tailings processing sector – both for the recovery of rare earths and all other metals.”“Rare earth operations have long sought a clean and cost effective alternative to traditional solvent extraction technology, and our belief is that the alternative is MRT,” said Ken Collison, COO of Ucore. “The SuperLig process is environmentally friendly, and integrates well with Ucore’s standards of exceptional environmental stewardship and economic efficiency.”IBC is an award-winning, green chemical selective separations company based on innovative MRT products.  It  specialises in MRT, using green chemistry to achieve highly selective separations of metal ions in complex matrices.  Based on Nobel Prize-winning technology (1987), IBC’s proprietary products and processes are used worldwide by premier metals refining and mining companies such as Tanaka Kikinzoku K.K. (Japan), Asarco Grupo Mexico (USA), Impala Platinum (South Africa), and Sino Platinum (China).IBC’s expertise is illustrated by its extensive development and commercialization of separations systems for PGMs at a world level. PGMs are analogous to the rare earth elements, in that they are considered difficult to selectively separate due to their constituent chemical similarities.The Ucore-IBC alliance builds on IBC’s proven capabilities to develop, scale-up and commercialise selective separations systems for a number of diverse and complex applications.Ucore Rare Metals is a development-phase mining company focused on establishing rare metal resources and beneficiation technologies with near term potential for production, growth and scalability. With multiple projects across North America, Ucore’s primary focus is the 100% owned Bokan-Dotson Ridge REE property in Alaska. This REE project lies 60 km southwest of Ketchikan, and 140 km northwest of Prince Rupert, British Columbia and has direct ocean access to the western seaboard and the Pacific Rim, a significant advantage in developing near term production facilities and limiting the capital costs associated with mine construction.This breakthrough represents advanced American technology being used to address a uniquely American challenge,” said Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT). “Securing the most critical specialty metals is essential to fuel our nation’s technology engines. Rare earths such as dysprosium, terbium, and neodymium are increasingly important to US military, transportation, medical, and super-computing applications as we compete across the globe. My congratulations to Ucore and IBC Advanced Technologies for delivering a prospective ‘missing link’ in the domestic technology metals supply stream.”last_img read more

With illegal streams on the rise and viewer numbers falling is it

first_img 21,524 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 66 Comments Short URL Source: DPA/PA ImagesSky Sports figures are down a whopping 25% since 2010, with the prime Sunday afternoon kickoffs averaging 1.1 million viewers, compared to 1.7 million in 2011/12.Executives at the TV companies played down the declines, blaming passing factors such as the Olympic Games, the variance in match scheduling year-on-year and the absence of figures for legal streaming on the broadcasters’ mobile and online device apps.But the real response of the Premier League and its broadcast partners came in the early months of this year, when in conjunction with law-enforcement agencies they launched what the league described as its “largest ever anti-piracy campaign.”This crackdown saw a series of arrests related to the alleged supply of ‘Kodi-boxes’, devices that can be programmed to pick up illegal streams straight to users TV sets, while the Premier League also won a high court order to allow Internet Service Providers to shut down entire servers hosting illicit feeds. Source: SIPA USA/PA Images“Our model is predicated on the ability to market and sell rights and protect our intellectual property,” a Premier League spokesperson told the Guardian. “It is because of this that clubs can invest in and develop talented players, build world-class stadiums, support the English football pyramid and schools and communities across the country.”Sympathy for a system that allows Jermaine Defoe to employ someone to re-stock his fridge may be in short supply; rather than any concern for schools and communities, the Premier League’s clampdown is probably more to do with the fact that its domestic TV rights package, which earned them £5.14 billion last time out, is up for renewal next year. But industry insiders fear that the technological genie may be out of the bottle when it comes to illegal streaming.Of course, we Generation Xers have seen all this before. For the 2017 sports industry, read the efforts of the music business in taking on file-sharing sites such as Napster from the late 1990s on. Many millions of dollars were spent on courtroom battles to stop illegal downloads, yet today streaming is the dominant form of music consumption, not expensively priced CDs.The lesson for sport? The music industry eventually realised people would pay for their product, just not quite as much as they wanted for it. After almost two decades of financial turmoil, in January the Financial Times revealed that the US music industry was on course to record a second consecutive year of growth, something which hadn’t happened since 1999, the year Napster was launched. Sunderland striker Jermaine Defoe Source: Richard SellersPay-TV companies are hoping that so-called Over-The-Top (OTT) services like Sky’s Now TV will tap into the market that is currently doing its specialised streaming via illegal means. But at €10 per day for Sky Sports programming, Now TV is unlikely to sink the pirates; the same amount gets you a month on Netflix or Spotify.Sports TV subscriptions have been inflated beyond their true value by warring telecommunications giants, while the proceeds of the bidding wars have created an industry as extravagant in its spending as anything from the music industry’s stretch limo, pre-Napster heyday. But now streaming is doing for football fans what file-sharing once did for music buyers.Unless the leagues and TV companies come up with an affordable alternative, a sort of Spotify for sport, where you can pick what you want to watch for a reasonable sum, then they may well be in for a similar shock to that endured by the music industry.And football shouldn’t just expect its market dominance to protect it. The SIG survey also revealed that declining numbers of millennials described football as their favourite sport, while 20% say they have no interest in sport at all, compared to 9% of over 35s. This could all present a nightmare scenario: an older audience becoming more comfortable with illegal Kodi-style streaming, and a younger audience losing interest altogether.It’s enough to drive this Generation X-er back to his Discman. Although I hear MiniDisc is where it’s at now…Garrett 1st pick of NFL Draft, but Trubisky leads night of QB dramaMarking Colm Cooper, continuing to improve at 29 and adapting to Kerry’s new-found aggression Apr 28th 2017, 12:05 PM center_img Friday 28 Apr 2017, 12:05 PM With illegal streams on the rise and viewer numbers falling, is it time for a Spotify for sport?

It reminds me of being labelled a member of Generation X, with its inference that we all spent our 1990s lives moping aimlessly in plaid shirts listing to Stone Temple Pilots on a Sony Discman.Nonetheless, the way ‘millennials’ carry on, as with every preceding youth demographic, is always bad news for someone older and richer, and this week it was the powerful nexus of professional sport and pay-TV in the firing line. Christian Eriksen celebrates scoring for Tottenham recently Source: John WaltonA survey by the UK-based Sports Industry Group (SIG) revealed that 54% of those aged between 18-24 years admitted watching sports on illegal streams, with a third saying they do so regularly, compared to just 4% of over-35s.The survey also revealed that those pesky millennials are only half as likely to subscribe to pay-TV sports services such as Sky Sports or BT Sport.So the age group that is three times more likely to be unemployed than the UK national average is less willing to stump up for ever-increasing sports subscriptions? And the very age group with the technological savvy to get around the vast sports TV paywall gleefully uses it?Well duh! (as millenials almost certainly do not say anymore).The normalisation of illegal streaming is the latest canary-in-the-coalmine moment for the TV sports rights bubble. It follows news of the downward trend in Premier League viewing figures. Statistics released by the Broadcasters’ Audience Research Board revealed that UK viewer numbers for the first half of the season had fallen by 11% compared to last season.

Philippines advocacy group files Supreme Court petition against PAGCOR

first_imgA Philippines advocacy group has filed a petition to the Supreme Court to cite gaming regulator PAGCOR for contempt over its regulation of online gambling.In a 14-page submission, the Anti-Trapo Movement claims that PAGCOR deliberately ignored and circumvented a Supreme Court ruling in 2004 in which the court declared that PAGCOR did not have the authority to regulate the online gambling industry. PAGCOR revenue to hit Php75 billion in 2020 RelatedPosts Load More Manila diplomat rejects China’s call to ban online gambling China calls for total ban on online gambling in the Philippines PAGCOR “made their own interpretation of the PAGCOR charter and arrogated upon themselves the powers to administer online gaming in the country,” said the group’s leader, Leon Estrella Peralta, in a statement. Peralta also claims that PAGCOR is in violation of Presidential Decree 1869 and Republic Act 9487 which outline the regulator’s roles and responsibilities.As reported by the Inquirer, his comments follow a recent argument filed by the Office of Government Corporate Counsel in which PAGCOR argues that the Presidential Decree 1869 refers to Jai Alai as the only game outside of its jurisdiction.“If it were really the intention of congress to exclude internet gaming, then it would have expressly included the latter in the exclusion,” PAGCOR said.However, Peralta is arguing that the phrase “except Jai Alai” does not appear in the genuine version of the Presidential Decree 1869 which was published in the government’s Official Gazette in 1982.Instead, he says, only the Cagayan Economic Zone and Freeport Authority and the Aurora Pacific Economic Zone and Freeport Authority are legally allowed to regulate online gambling. Peralta has accused PAGCOR of illegally “interpreting and implementing the law”, adding that the Supreme Court is the “true agency of the government with the authority to interpret the law,” according to the Inquirer.last_img read more

Trump Wins Now What

first_imgChelsea Beck/NPRDonald Trump’s presidential campaign, like the business career that preceded it, was unpredictable, undisciplined and unreliable. Despite those qualities — or perhaps, in part, because of them — it was also successful.Houston Public Media’s Coverage of Election 2016So what should we expect from President-elect Trump, mindful that his path to the White House has defied expectations at every turn?Some of Trump’s ambitions have been clearly telegraphed: He plans to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, deport millions of criminal immigrants, unwind trade deals dating back more than two decades and repeal Obamacare. He has also promised to cut taxes and eliminate numerous government regulations — including power plant rules designed to combat global warming.With the presidential pen and a friendly Republican Congress, Trump should have little trouble delivering on those promises.But Trump’s campaign never really revolved around specific policy prescriptions. His agenda is not anchored to ideology but rather shaped by instinct and expedience.“Trump operates very much from his gut,” said David Cay Johnston, author of The Making of Donald Trump. “The guiding philosophy of Trump is whatever is in it for his interests at the moment.”When his initial tax plan prompted sticker shock among fiscal watchdogs, Trump readily shaved trillions of dollars off the bottom line. (His new plan is still a budget buster, though.) His impulsive call to ban Muslim immigrants gradually morphed into a vague prescription for “extreme vetting.” And he hastily concocted a plan to help working parents only after his daughter trumpeted a vaporware version at the GOP convention.That flexibility seems to be just fine with tens of millions of supporters who trust Trump’s instincts and assume his success will boost the country as a whole. The campaign slogan “Make America Great Again,” which Trump trademarked just days after the 2012 election, is both vague and malleable enough to accommodate whatever nostalgic and aspirational vision his followers want to attach to it.Supporters point to the way Trump rescued a New York skating rink that languished for years in the 1980s under city government supervision.“What had taken the city over half a decade to botch, my father completed in less than six months, two months ahead of schedule and over a million dollars under budget,” Eric Trump told delegates at the Republican National Convention.Backers hope the incoming president will bring similar accountability to the federal government.One of Trump’s first tasks will be staffing up for a new administration. The celebrity businessman who turned “You’re fired!” into a catchphrase will soon be doing a lot of hiring.“I will harness the creative talents of our people,” Trump told supporters at a victory party early Wednesday. “And we will call upon the best and brightest to leverage their tremendous talent for the benefit of all.”Friends say assembling high-performing teams is one of the president-elect’s strengths.“He pushes everybody around him, including you, through comfort barriers that they never thought they could ever shatter,” said Colony Capital CEO Tom Barrack, who delivered a testimonial for Trump at the party convention in July.Trump’s daughter Ivanka told delegates her father has always promoted on the basis of merit.“Competence in the building trades is easy to spot,” she said at the convention in July. “And incompetence is impossible to hide.”In politics and in business, Trump has kept his organizations lean. He had only about one-tenth of the staff Hillary Clinton had, heading into the final months of the campaign.Trump’s aides are often long on loyalty and short on formal credentials. Politico noted that the chief operating officer of the Trump Organization was initially hired to be a bodyguard, after Trump spotted him working security at the U.S. Open tennis tournament.Trump may delegate, but there’s no doubt who’s in charge. Even if he fills his Cabinet with big personalities — Newt Gingrich has been floated for secretary of state and Rudy Giuliani for attorney general — Trump is not likely to share the spotlight.“The only quote that matters is a quote from me!” Trump tweeted this summer, urging journalists to pay no attention to his subordinates. As late as Friday, he boasted that he didn’t need other celebrities to attract large crowds to his rallies.“I didn’t have to bring JLo or Jay Z,” Trump said, mocking Hillary Clinton’s reliance on big-name warmup acts. “I am here all by myself.”Trump, who prides himself on being a counter-puncher, can also be expected to use the levers of government to target his political rivals. He has already threatened on live television to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton.“Trump’s philosophy, which he’s written and spoken about for many years, is to get revenge,” Johnston said.Once Trump is in the White House, the news media will remain firmly focused on the new commander in chief.“Donald is the most masterful manipulator of the conventions of journalism I’ve ever seen,” said Johnston, a Pulitzer Prize-winning former reporter for The New York Times.Trump has long believed that even bad publicity is better than no publicity. Surprising and provocative statements are both a tool to keep the audience paying attention and a negotiating tactic.“I always say we have to be unpredictable,” Trump told the Washington Post editorial board.Everything for Trump is a negotiation. And much of his campaign was based on the idea that the U.S. has been getting a bad bargain.“You look at what the world is doing to us at every level, whether it’s militarily or in trade or so many other levels, the world is taking advantage of the United States,” Trump told CNN. “And it’s driving us into literally being a third-world nation.”As a businessman, Trump has a long history of using pressure tactics to drive hard bargains. USA Today found hundreds of examples in which employees and contractors accused Trump of not paying them for their work. They sometimes settled for less than they were owed, rather than face a lengthy legal battle against Trump and his deep pockets.Similarly, Trump argues that if the U.S. puts pressure on other countries — by imposing import tariffs or demanding payment for military protection — they’ll quickly back down.Some foreign policy scholars are not convinced this zero-sum mindset is appropriate.“By threatening to drive harder bargains, he might manage to eke out a slightly larger share of the pie,” said Daniel Drezner of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. “But he also threatens to blow up that pie in the process.”The stock market has sent clear signals that investors are worried about the economic fallout from a Trump administration. According to one estimate, the S&P 500 index will be worth 12 percent less under Trump than it would have been had Clinton been elected.Count on the president-elect to loudly hype any success while downplaying any setback. And if that requires bending the truth a bit, so be it.“People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular,” Trump wrote in his best-selling 1987 book The Art of the Deal. “It’s an innocent form of exaggeration — and a very effective form of promotion.”If history is any guide, the new Trump administration will not be overly constrained by facts.Trump has shamelessly exaggerated the height of his buildings, the size of his profits, and even the number of people who showed up to cheer his presidential bid.“When you have a huge crowd, and Trump draws huge crowds, there’s no need to exaggerate,” Johnston said. “Except in Donald’s mind where big is never big enough.”Don’t expect that to stop now that he has achieved the biggest and most powerful office in the land.Copyright 2016 NPR.

MD Anderson President Praises Work of Scientist Awarded with Nobel Prize in

first_imgDr. Peter Pisters, president of MD Anderson Cancer Center, praised Monday the work of Dr. James Allison who has been awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine for his work in cancer research.MD Anderson Cancer CenterDr. Peter Pisters, president of MD Anderson Cancer Center.Pisters told Houston Matters that Allison’s work has looked closely at the T cells, which could be thought of as the soldiers of the immune system. Allison discovered there is a break on the T cells which, in the case of cancer patients, often prevents the immune system from recognizing the cancer as foreign to the human body.“Jim’s work helps to understand how that break could be released, freeing the T cells to attack the cancer cells,” said the MD Anderson president, who underlined that Allison’s research has “opened up an entire new field of cancer treatment.”Pisters highlighted as well that Allison’s research led to the development of a new drug that was approved for late stage melanoma treatment by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2011.The MD Anderson president also noted that was attracted to work in Houston because of the caliber of research at MD Anderson, but, additionally, because of the work developed by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas.Pisters hopes that Allison’s recognition with the Nobel Prize in medicine will help MD Anderson to “continue to retain and to attract future scientists to our community.” X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /06:58 Listen Sharelast_img read more

Windows 10 May Learn to Automatically Remove Updates That Bork Your PC

first_img Keeping the software on your computer up-to-date is an absolute must. It’s just too risky to go cruising around the Internet with unpatched vulnerabilities on your PC. Unfortunately updating isn’t always a trouble-free experience.For example, there have been plenty of buggy Windows updates over the years. The most troublesome caused show-stopping problems that rendered PCs unable to boot.There’s typically a way out, but fixing boot problems on a Windows system can be a complicated task. That may no longer be the case in the near future.AdChoices广告A support document that was recently published shows that Windows 10 PCs could soon be able to repair the damage automatically. It’s titled “Why were recently installed updates removed?”The answer to that question: Windows 10 detected a startup failure, exhausted other automatic recovery options, and determined that the only way to get things back on track was to roll back the last batch of updates that were installed.Windows Latest shared this image of the notification you’ll see if Windows 10 has to perform the repair:Windows 10 will also freeze the problematic updates and postpone any attempts to re-install them for 30 days. Hopefully that grace period will give Microsoft (and its OEM partners) enough time to identify the problem and ship a revised update that won’t render your system unusable.This could help smooth out some bumps in the Windows Update process, and that’s a very big deal. Microsoft wants to make sure that every Windows 10 computer is always fully patched.Teaching Windows 10 to fix itself could help prevent users from becoming frustrated with the update process and deciding to pull the plug on Windows Update. That can be a very dangerous situation. All it takes is one vulnerable system to expose an entire network to a devastating cyber attack.More on HoloLens 2 Augments Reality AgainSkype’s Background Blur Hides Embarrassing EnvironmentsMicrosoft Is Finally Showing Notepad a Little Love Twitch Streams Porn on Ninja’s Old AccountMicrosoft Releases Retro Windows App as ‘Stranger Things’ Tie-In Stay on targetlast_img read more

Spotify hit by new 200 million copyright suit

first_imgFerrick said that her songs have been streamed or temporarily downloaded one million times in the past three years over Spotify but said the company did not license them as required.Ferrick’s lawsuit sought at least $200 million on behalf of copyright holders from Spotify, a private company which says it has more than 75 million users and has been valued at $8 billion.Spotify was hit in late December by another lawsuit seeking a class-action suit filed by David Lowery, the leader of alternative rock bands Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven who is also an academic.Lowery, whose lawsuit sought at least $150 million, also accused Spotify of failing to seek permission for copying or distributing songs.His lawsuit had a slightly different argument, accusing Spotify of ignoring mechanical rights — the permission to reproduce copyrighted material. LOS ANGELES, California – Streaming leaderSpotify has been hit by a new copyright lawsuit seeking $200 million, in the second such case within weeks.The lawsuits, each filed by individual artists in a U.S. federal court in Los Angeles, ask a judge to create a class-action suit in which other alleged victims can collectively seek damages.The latest lawsuit was filed Friday by Melissa Ferrick, the Massachusetts-based indie folk singer who teaches at the prestigious Berklee College of Music and rose to prominence as Morrissey’s last-minute opening act on his 1991 tour.Ferrick accused Spotify, which boasts of providing a massive selection of on-demand music, of failing to inform copyright owners when it created phonorecords, the files used to provide the instant music online.Ferrick charged that the Swedish company, not wanting to delay its growth – including its U.S. launch in 2011 – took “a now familiar strategy for many digital music services — infringe now, apologize later.”“Spotify chose expediency over licenses. Thus, while Spotify has profited handsomely from the music that its sells to its subscribers, the owners of that music (in particular, songwriters and their music publishers) have not been able to share in that success because Spotify is using their music for free,” the lawsuit said. In response to Lowery’s lawsuit, Spotify said it was trying to compensate every rights holder but that data were often missing.“We are committed to paying songwriters and publishers every penny,” Spotify spokesman Jonathan Prince said at the time.Spotify says it has paid back $3 billion to music-makers, has set aside money for future payouts and is working to find technical solutions to avoid future problems.Streaming, both on Spotify and competing services such as Apple Music and Tidal, has been rapidly growing and contributed to a net rise in music consumption in the United States last year.

India lets in Exxon Valdez if toxic disposal paid

first_img Top Stories Priya Blue Industries will abide by the ruling on the disposal of contaminated material, said Sanjay Mehta, director of the ship dismantling company based in Gujarat state.Activist Gopal Krishna, who had petitioned the court, said he felt let down by Monday’s decision.“It’s disappointing that the toxic-laden vessel has been given entry into Indian waters. The ship poses a grave environmental threat because a variety of hazardous materials are on board,” Krishna said.The court said Gujarat maritime authorities had certified that the ship did not contain any hazardous substances.On March 24, 1989, the Exxon Valdez tanker dashed against rocks and split open in Alaska’s ecologically sensitive Prince William Sound. Millions of gallons of crude oil spilled, coating the shoreline, killing hundreds of thousands of birds, causing incalculable environmental damage and demolishing the area’s fishing industry.Its ownership and name have been changed repeatedly in an apparent effort to keep using the ship while distancing it from the disaster. It was converted to an ore carrier a decade ago and suffered more damage in a collision in the South China Sea in 2010.

Associated PressNEW DELHI (AP) – India’s Supreme Court has allowed the Exxon Valdez, which caused one of the worst U.S. oil spills, to be dismantled in the country but required the owner to pay for disposal of any toxic materials found on the ship.The 26-year-old ship, now known as the Oriental Nicety, entered Indian waters in May to be broken down for valuable parts. But it was denied permission to anchor near Alang, the hub of India’s shipbreaking industry, while the court examined an environmental activist’s petition that said the vessel contained toxic substances. 4 ways to protect your company from cyber breaches Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Sponsored Stories Comments   Share   More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements 5 ways to recognize low testosteronelast_img read more

700 until kickoff The Cardinals starters were a

first_img7:00 until kickoffThe Cardinals’ starters were announced, and as Doug Franz pointed out, there wasn’t much cheering for tight end Jim Dray. A Rob Housler crowd, perhaps?Anyway, we’re a few minutes from getting this one started and there are plenty of story lines to follow.How will the Cardinals handle Detroit’s defensive line?Can Patrick Peterson slow down Calvin Johnson?Can the Cardinals win their home opener?We’ll find out soon enough. :38 left in first quarterCardinals move a little but stall, and decide against going for it on fourth-and-one near midfield. How very anti-ASU of them. Zastudil’s punt is a good one, as it is fair caught at the seven. Defense is back on the field.Early thoughts; Detroit’s offense has moved the ball but stalled, which says something. Not sure what (is the defense buckling down when necessary or is Detroit just waiting to explode?). 13:39 left in second quarterA nice play by Palmer leads to a 20-yard reception by Rashard Mendenhall, and just like that the Cards are in business. Kind of fun watching a real QB, isn’t it? Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact 7:08 left in fourth quarterPalmer hits Ellington out of the backfield on 3rd and 6, and after being up-ended the RB lands and loses the ball. Refs ruled it a fumble that was recovered by Arizona on the field, but the Cardinals are challenging that not only was it not a fumble, but a first down, too. Should be interesting, because this one is close. 10:29 left in first quarterWell, first play went to Fitz for a first, and the Cards picked up some yards by way of some excellent Carson Palmer passes. However, the QB missed Fitz on an open deep ball, and then the receiver walked off the field (before a third down play). The third down play went to Andre Roberts (on another excellent throw), but he could not hang on and the Cards were forced to punt. A holding penalty on the return has the Lions backed up to their six. HalftimeWell that shows how much I know, as the Lions elect to sit on the ball and head into the half up 14-10. Interesting 30 minutes of football, to say the least. Game overCards get the first win of the Bruce Arians era. Kind of need to score a TD here. By the way, Palmer is playing some good football. 5:43 left in fourth quarterFacing 3rd and 7, Palmer throws across his body to find Michael Floyd for what would have been a first — if it was ruled a catch on the field. The receiver is sure he caught it, though, and Arians tossed his challenge flag. Replays appear to show that this was, indeed, a catch. Will the refs see conclusive evidence here? End of third quarterAn incomplete pass by Palmer makes it second and 10, which is where we’ll be when play resumes. The Cardinals are hanging in there, but could really use a touchdown here. Sound familiar? Ball is on the Detroit 23, by the way. 1:15 left in fourth quarterLions facing a fourth and four from their own 43. This is the play of the game (up to this point, anyway). Cards get a stop, Cards get a win. It’s that simple. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 1:59 left in fourth quarterCardinals drive the ball down the field, and a pass interference call gives Arizona the ball at the one. An incomplete pass is followed by a Mendenhall score. Two-point conversion attempt fails, but the Cards are up 25-21. Defense has been great this half, if they can just get one more stop this one will be over.4:28 left in fourth quarterCards force a HUGE three-and-out. Peterson returns the 58-yard punt just five yards, though, and Arizona takes over at its own 39. This may be their last chance to put a drive together, and they’ve got a short field with which to try and get at least a field goal. 5:43 left in fourth quarterRefs say ruling on the field stands, which means they didn’t have enough to overturn it. If it had been called a catch on the field and then reviewed, it would have stayed as a catch. Tough luck for the Cardinals.And on another note, Fitz is now questionable to return to the game.Zastudil is brought on to punt, and this one is downed at the seven yard line. Cards lost a big timeout on the losing challenge, too. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 10:32 left in third quarterKickoff is a touchback, and the Lions take over at their 20. They’re still up, and the turnover was of the unforced variety, so you have to think they still feel pretty good about things. Calais Campbell comes up with Arizona’s first sack of the season on third down, but a good punt leaves Peterson with no return at the Arizona 48. Excellent chance for the Cardinals take an early lead on this drive, let’s see if they can come through. 2:00 left in second quarterLions are driving. Detroit’s ball at the Arizona three, and the Cards have showed little resistance of late. The quick-pass game has worked well for the Lions, and either that (or a fade to Johnson) may be dialed up here after the break. 7:04 left in third quarterUhhh, oops. Facing a third and six, Palmer is pressured into making a pass that is picked off and returned 66 yards by DeAndre Levy for a touchdown. Given that the Cards were down a point and driving, that is an incredibly bitter pill to swallow. Palmer’s second interception in two games, and while he’s looked really good otherwise, both his picks have been costly. 14:24 left in second quarter 9:56 left in third quarterDefense gets the stop and the Cards take over. First play is a 17-yard pass to Patrick Peterson. Yes, the defensive back. Cardinals near midfield. 11:55 left in third quarterAsk and you shall receive! Bush fumbles the handoff (nobody touched him), and Campbell jumps on the ball at the Detroit seven. :53 left in second quarterCards get a first down but not much more, and Zastudil punts the ball away. Lions have it on their own 21, and with three timeouts to go (plus that Calvin Johnson guy), so they may try to tack on a few more points before the half. 2:38 left in third quarterDefense forces a three-and-out, and the punt is fair caught at the Arizona 26. D has come to play today, especially this half. Can the offense capitalize?center_img Comments   Share   5:45 left in second quarterLions convert on a third down play with a reception by Reggie Bush, who is down on the ground after the tackle. The former Heisman Trophy winner* was on the field for a bit but ended up walking off. Lions have the ball at their own 41. 1:59 left in fourth quarterKickoff goes out of the end zone, Lions have it at their 20. This place is getting loud…first time that’s happened in a while. 10:33 left in third quarterOK, maybe you don’t get everything you ask for. The Cards go basically nowhere, and a third down pass to Floyd comes up short of the end zone when Fitzgerald failed to make a block. Feely comes on for a 23-yard field goal, and while points are nice, Arizona still trails 14-13. Missed a golden opportunity there. Top Stories 10:20 left in second quarterHis name is Megatron, folks. Matt Stafford throws a quick pass to Calvin Johnson, who takes the ball 72 yards for a touchdown. Karlos Dansby nearly knocked the ball down (or even picked it off), but the ball made it through to the receiver. Not much you can do about that, folks. Guy is the best in the business for a reason.7-3 visitors. 11:44 left in second quarterSome confusion on the kickoff as Spurlock nearly takes the ball out of the end zone before deciding it’d be best to stay put. The refs rule it a touchback, and it’s probably the right call. 11:44 left in second quarterDrive stalls there, but Arizona still scores some points by way of a 47-yard Jay Feely field goal for the 3-0 lead.Cards up, but certainly not in control. 4:14 left in third quarterWell that was an interesting drive. Cardinals move down the field with some good runs and good passes, one of which was from Patrick Peterson to Kerry Taylor. Besides the fact that it appears Peterson would have been a better option than anyone the Cardinals used at QB last season, the most disappointing thing is Arizona had to settle for another field goal. Feely boots it through, but they’re still down 21-16. 1:55 left in second quarterAnd just like that, a three-yard toss to Johnson in the corner of the end zone. Excellent route, great throw, and Lions regain the lead. Congrats to anyone who had the foresight to put Calvin Johnson in their fantasy lineups today. Brilliant! End of first quarterA shifty run by Reggie Bush goes for three and that’s where we’ll pick up when play resumes. Cardinals D with an excellent chance to force a punt here, and if it does so the offense will have good field position. As it is, this first quarter was a little strange. No one on either team looked particularly great, but no one looked really bad, either.The Cards can take solace in the fact that Palmer has looked pretty good, and the Lions can feel good about how they’ve moved the ball. The result of it all is a 0-0 score, though, so take it for what it’s worth. 1:09 left in fourth quarterLions come up short on the pass as Tyrann Mathieu makes a great tackle, and just like that this one will go to the Cardinals. It’s all victory formation from here. Final score: Arizona 25, Detroit 21. Pretty fun game. 7:32 left in second quarterThey responded very nicely, thank you very much.Some good runs from Mendenhall and a great throw from Palmer to Fitz was followed up by an even better throw on a wheel route to Andre Ellington. You know, a play you may remember from an incomplete pass on 3rd and 2 last week in St. Louis. This one goes for a 36-yard TD, and the Cards are back on top. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 1:29 left in third quarterCardinals get their first third-down conversion by way of a penalty that just so happened to wipe out a sack/fumble. Palmer then hits Kerry Taylor with a ball down the field for a good gain, and when you add another 15 yards due to a personal foul on Detroit, Arizona is back in business. 12:41 left in first quarterD looks good, and survives a well-designed Detroit screen on third and long to force a punt. Patrick Peterson returns it to the Arizona 21, which is where we get our first look at the offense. And by the way, Fitz is playing, though with his injury who knows for how long and how effective. 15:00 left in first quarterCardinals kick off to start, with Jay Feely sending it to the end zone.Lions start at their own 20, we get an early look art at Arizona’s D against one of the league’s better offenses. 14:17 left in fourth quarterCards don’t go much further, as a third down play fails (shocking) to pick up the first. Feely is brought on for a field goal, which he makes from 33-yards out. 21-19 Lions. 7:08 left in fourth quarterCardinals win the challenge and get the first down. The drive continues… 8:43 left in fourth quarterDefense holds the Lions to a field goal attempt, which is blocked by Justin Bethel. Ronald Talley recovers the ball and takes it to the Arizona 42. Kind of a big series coming up here. 10:20 left in second quarterKickoff sails out of the end zone. Cards have it at their own 20, let’s see how they respond. 12:43 left in third quarterCards gain some yardage on Mendenhall runs, but drive stalls and they are forced to punt. Spurlock runs backwards on the return and is downed at the Lions’ six. Would be a good time for the D to force a turnover, or at least a three-and-out. 15:00 left in third quarterAkers’ kick is a touchback, and the Cards will start at their 20. Some interesting first half stats:Palmer: 12-of-17 for 165 yards and a TDMendenhall: Four carries, 25 yards along with two receptions for 28 yardsEight different Cards receivers caught a passOn the Lions’ side:Stafford: 16-of-20 for 210 yards and two TDsMegatron: Four receptions for 96 yards and two TDsBush: Eight carries for 18 yards 3:28 left in first quarterLions pick up some yardage but the defense holds. The Lions brought out David Akers for a 52-yard field goal, which he pushed left. However, the Cards were flagged for ‘running into the kicker’, which gave the veteran another shot, this time from 47-yards out.He pushed it right. Who needs consistency, anyway?So, yards were gained, but no points scored, and the Cards go back on offense at their own 37. last_img read more

FCT, who attended and asked Trump about the proposal "He dismissed it categorically and said it doesn’t work"A White House official said there are "legitimate questions" about a public-private approach to revamping the nation’s infrastructure The official said that while the administration has researched such approaches "they are certainly not the silver bullet for all of our nation’s infrastructure problems and we will continue to consider all viable options"Trump campaigned on a pledge to lead a massive rebuilding effort that would rely on private-sector funding to overhaul the nation’s crumbling infrastructure His administration talked up the concept – in which private investors would underwrite projects in exchange for a share in future profits – in the budget it rolled out in May "Working with states local governments and private industry we will ensure that these new federal funds are matched by significant additional dollars for maximum efficiency and accountability" he said in a June speech on infrastructureBut the effort has floundered as Republicans in Washington have turned to other priorities including the drive to overhaul Obamacare – which met another defeat on Tuesday – and spearheading a tax code rewrite which they have been working on for several months Some Democrats pronounced themselves eager to work with Trump on an infrastructure initiative which could have meant a bipartisan breakthrough of sortsAt the meeting Tuesday Higgins said Trump indicated the administration instead would seek to pay for infrastructure upgrades through direct federal spending – either by paying for projects with new tax revenue or taking on new debtSuch an approach would likely limit the scope of the initiative to a fraction of what the president has previously describedFor example Trump officials – and lawmakers from both parties – have discussed ways to get a magnified bang for each federal buck by extending loan guarantees and lines of credit to private builders One popular idea has been forcing multinational corporations to bring home the roughly $2 trillion in profits they have secured overseas at a discounted tax rate –
