Chasing a “below par total” of 162, CSK lost their top four batsman inside the first four overs. It was only MS Dhoni, who single-handedly brought them into the match and kept their hopes alive till the last ball of the inning.Despite two consecutive losses, CSK still sit pretty at the top of the points table with 14 points from 10 games. However, they will like their top order to perform and secure a playoffs berth.But it will be a tough ask for them against SRH, who would be riding high on confidence after their comprehensive victory against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Hyderabad.SRH, however, will be wary of the fact that Tuesday’s game would be the last match for their in-form opener Johnny Bairstow, who will be leaving to attend England’s training camp for the upcoming World Cup. Both David Warner and Bairstow have scored the bulk of the runs for the SRH and their middle-order has not performed — a fact well known to them and their opponents.With five wins from nine games, the Kane Williamson-led side would want to continue with the winning momentum and move upwards in the points table.The last time these two teams met in the ongoing IPL, SRH had secured a convincing six-wicket win at their home ground.advertisementWhere will the IPL 2019 match between CSK vs SRH be played?The IPL 2019 match between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad will be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai from 8 PM IST.Where can I watch the IPL 2019 match between CSK vs SRH live?The match will be shown on the Star Sports TV network and can also be streamed on hotstar.com.Where can I check the online live updates of the IPL 2019 match between CSK vs SRH?You can follow our coverage here – www.indiatoday.in/sports/ipl-2019 & www.indiatoday.in/sports.What are the squads for the IPL 2019 match between CSK vs SRH?Chennai Super Kings: Harbhajan Singh, Shane Watson, Dwayne Bravo, MS Dhoni (c), Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Murali Vijay, Karn Sharma, Kedar Jadhav, Ambati Rayudu, Imran Tahir, Faf du Plessis, Deepak Chahar, Sam Billings, Mohit Sharma, Shardul Thakur, Dhruv Shorey, Scott Kuggeleijn, Monu Kumar, Mitchell Santner, Chaitanya Bishnoi, N Jagadeesan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, KM AsifSunrisers Hyderabad: Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, Martin Guptill, Wriddhiman Saha, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, David Warner, Shreevats Goswami, Siddarth Kaul, Manish Pandey, Mohammad Nabi, Kane Williamson (c), Jonny Bairstow, Shahbaz Nadeem, Vijay Shankar, Sandeep Sharma, Ricky Bhui, Deepak Hooda, Billy Stanlake, T Natarajan, Basil Thampi, Rashid Khan, K Khaleel Ahmed, Abhishek SharmaAlso Read | Will never question MS Dhoni’s final-over calculations: CSK coach Stephen FlemingAlso Read | SRH will badly miss David Warner, Jonny Bairstow: Kane WilliamsonFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

How To Clean Your Sneakers

first_img Oliver Cabell’s New Phoenix Sneakers Are 3D-Printed With Recycled Plastic Bottles Give Your Hypercar the Garage It Deserves with a Custom Aston Martin Lair 9 Best Spirits For Spiked Apple Cider Editors’ Recommendations How to Shave With a Straight Razor People have been collecting sneakers for decades: Air Jordans, Nike Air Command Forces, Yeezys, and everything in between. And along with those sneaker collections have come cleaning habits ingenious and insane in equal measure. We’ve heard of people using everything from Windex and lighter fluid to peanut butter and power washers to keep their kicks clean. We talked to Jason Markk, the creator of the first shoe cleaner specifically designed for sneakers, about how to clean your sneakers.“Keeping your sneakers fresh has always been just as important as the sneakers themselves,” Markk says. “I think a lot of people don’t trust what’s in generic shoe cleaners, so they take matters into their own hands by concocting home remedies using household cleaning products.”While the creativity sneakerheads put into their cleaning methods is certainly admirable (because let’s be honest, you really have to love your shoes to use lighter fluid as a cleaning agent) it is definitely not advisable. So put down the peanut butter and listen up.We’ll use three different scenarios to highlight what each level of urgency requires when it comes to how to clean your sneakers.Determining The Damage, or, Don’t PanicOkay, so maybe you weren’t looking where you were walking, and you ended up sinking ankle-deep into some mud. Or you were laughing so hard at what the barista said that you spilled coffee. Perhaps you even tripped and scuffed your midsoles. No worries. While your all-white Superskates may look hopeless right now, step away from the Windex. Household cleaners, while possibly effective at removing stains, have abrasive properties that will damage the materials and wear down your shoes in the long run. We’re going to look at what to do if you spill coffee, step in a mud puddle, or even scuff the midsoles of a standard pair of leather sneakers to give you a good idea of how to clean your shoes in any situation. There’s a cleaning method for every kind of shoe and shoe material, including that delicate creature suede. Some incidents require just warm water and some gentle wiping, while others require a total overhaul—brush, cleaner and everything. Even with the worst stains and scuffs, there is hope.Markk says to make sure you have the right tools to do the job properly. That means either warm soapy water or premium sneaker cleaner (depending on the level of care required), a proper brush, and a soft towel to wipe everything down when all is said and done.Related: Every Man Should Know How To Polish His Shoes. Here’s The Best Way To Do It.Now Onto The CleaningFor a bit of coffeeMarkk says with coffee, you should treat the stain as soon as possible.“If you’re not at home to treat it thoroughly, then head to the nearest restroom and wipe clean with a damp paper towel,” he says. You want to be as gentle as possible and make sure you’re not rubbing the coffee into the fabric.If the coffee has soaked into any areas of the shoe, rinse it with cold water and dab with a paper towel—don’t wipe.If you really spilled coffee, like a lot, then when you get home give your shoes a full cleaning with cleaner, brush, and towel. See below for how to really give your babies a thorough scrub-down.For a mud puddle messMarkk says you should spot treat as necessary if you’re not home—like above—to stop as much of the mud as possible from soaking into the fabric. Then, as soon as possible, it’s time to go to town. While you could use warm soapy water and a toothbrush, regular dish soap can be abrasive and actually damage the fabric, so we recommend the Premium Shoe Cleaner developed by Markk.Make sure you have the following: a bowl of warm water, Premium Shoe Cleaner, a brush (a toothbrush for the nooks and crannies and the standard brush for the big scrubbing), and a soft towel.Got it? Okay. First things first. Don’t add the cleaner to the water. Instead, dip your brush in the water, then add a few drops of cleaner to the brush. Start scrubbing the shoe. The cleaner gently foams when you use it, so it really gets into all the nooks and crannies of the leather. You can go in either a back-and-forth or circular motion—it doesn’t really matter as long as you’re scrubbing with the same amount of pressure you’d use to brush your teeth. (Unless you’re one of those people who goes through a toothbrush a month. If that’s the case, scrub gently.) Use a toothbrush for the finer details and tighter spaces.When most of the dirt and grime has lifted, you don’t need to rinse the cleaner off, and in fact, you want to avoid getting the leather soaking wet. Instead, wipe the shoe with a soft towel. The premium cleaner is gentle enough to use frequently on your shoes, so if there’s still too much dirt for your liking, you can repeat the process.For a scuffFor scuffs, we have good news and bad news. The bad news, Markk says, is that scuffing means there is actual damage to the shoe material—scuffs aren’t just stubborn stains.The good news? According to Markk, “Cleaning the dirt inside the scuff will minimize it visually, sometimes making it completely unnoticeable.”In this instance, you’ll want to use a toothbrush—The Manual has found that a soft bristle brush works best. Dip in warm water, and apply a few drops of cleaner. Scrub the scuff in question in a circular motion. You’re trying to get out as much dirt as possible without doing any more damage to the shoe. As stated above, when you’re done cleaning, wipe dry with a soft towel. Repeat the process as you see fit.Keeping Them Fresh In The Long-Term“As the collection grows, so do the memories,” Markk says. “Every pair has a story.”The whole point of collecting sneakers is to wear them, right? Nevertheless, it’s still a bummer when your new shoes get dirty or start creasing. Markk says not to worry about that. You should aim to clean your regular rotation once a week so you can keep your shoes box fresh for as long as possible. He says, “If you can get into the habit of cleaning each pair before storing them away, you’ll be glad you did the next time you pick that pair to wear.” As for creasing?“You can help to [prevent] creasing by always keeping your shoes stuffed when not being worn or, better yet, inserting a quality shoe tree.” Stuffing your shoes will help keep the shape. If you’re going to go the shoe tree route, Markk recommends shoe trees made of cedar. They’ll draw out any moisture and prevent odors. They’ll also make your shoes smell slightly piney and fresh.If you notice creasing in an all-leather shoe, Markk says, “Stuff the shoe and take a semi-damp white towel and place it over the toe box. Next, take an iron (on low to medium heat setting) and iron over the towel.” That’ll get some of the offending creases out of there. Another word of advice? Avoid washing machines. Markk says using the washing machine is the worst piece of advice for sneaker care.Both Markk and The Manual cannot stress enough that creasing and the occasional scuff is part of enjoying your kicks. There will be general wear and tear over time, but don’t be afraid to wear your shoes. With these tips, you should be able to keep your shoes looking fresh for much longer than if you stuck with your lighter fluid method. So get out there and enjoy your Air Force 1s.Header image courtesy of sling@flickr via Creative Commons.This piece was originally posted February 23, 2016 and updated on September 22, 2016 by Chase McPeak.  Learn Guitar (and Don’t Give Up) With the Fender Play Applast_img read more

TMC will win all 42 seats BJP zero in Bengal

first_imgAndul(WB): Trinamool Congress supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Wednesday claimed that her party will win all the 42 seats Lok Sabha seats in the state and BJP will draw a blank. “I am sure that BJP will not come to power in the country and in West Bengal it will draw a blank this time, down from two seats it got in the last LS polls”, Banerjee told a public rally at Andul in Howrah district in support of TMC candidate footballer-turned-politician Prasun Banerjee. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari Puja Referring to BJP president Amit Shah’s statement at a rally at Kalyani in the state during the day, Banerjee without naming him said “a person has come and said the National Register of Citizens will be implemented in the state when his party comes to power. Let them (BJP) come to power first and then we will show how they dare do it”, she said. Shah had said that NRC would be implemented in Bengal to weed out infiltrators. Banerjee said that election to 300 L S seats is already over and BJP is staring at defeat in the states of Rajshthan, UP, Bihar, Punjab, Gujrat, Tamil Nadu and Delhi. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highway “Now the BJP has turned its eyes on West Bengal. Is it so easy for a party like BJP, whose workers’ minds are infertile like a desert to make inroads in Bengal?” the TMC supremo lashed out. “BJP is not putting its ears to the ground and feeling the pulse of the people. Twelve thousand farmers have committed suicide and three lakh jobs have been done away with,” she said. Referring to the Ram Temple issue, she said BJP is in the habit of raising it during elections. “In the last five years has the party had been able to build even a miniature Ram Temple?” she asked. “Now Narendra Modi is coming to Bengal often and asking for votes. Modi does not know anything about the state,” she said. Referring to demonetisation, which she and her party have often opposed, Banerjee said the Modi government had announced it apparently to stop terrorism. “A day will come when they (BJP) will close down banks saying that there is no money”, she said. Referring to the naxal attack at Gadchiroli in Maharashtra which claimed the lives of 15 policeman, Banerjee said “We have restored peace in Junglemahal area (comrpsising the erstwhile Maoist affected forested areas of Purulia, Bankura and West Midnapore districts). We have establish peace there”. “Let BJP do the same in states like Jharkhand and Maharashtra in dealing with the Naxalites and restore peace,” she added.last_img read more

UN agency welcomes independent probe into Somalia food aid operations

11 March 2010The World Food Programme (WFP) said today it would welcome an independent inquiry into its operations in Somalia, after a United Nations monitoring group alleged that contractors have diverted the agency’s food aid away from the hungry. The World Food Programme (WFP) said today it would welcome an independent inquiry into its operations in Somalia, after a United Nations monitoring group alleged that contractors have diverted the agency’s food aid away from the hungry. The agency added it would not engage in any new work with three transport contractors named in a report from the UN Monitoring Group on Somalia, which alleged they were involved in arms-trading. “The integrity of our organization is paramount and we will be reviewing and investigating each and every issue raised by this report,” said Josette Sheeran, the Rome-based agency’s Executive Director.“WFP stands ready to offer full cooperation with any independent inquiry into its work in Somalia.”Ms. Sheeran noted that vulnerabilities are always present in conflict areas, and many of the issues raised have already been addressed, while other points identified by the UN Monitoring Group conflicted with operational facts and information. “WFP is requesting the opportunity to correct factual issues and inform the group on actions WFP has already taken,” the agency stated in a news release.Somalia is one of the most dangerous places in the world for humanitarian workers, and an environment within which WFP has to constantly adjust and revise its operations.In January, the agency suspended operations across southern Somalia in response to intimidation of its staff and the imposition of a number of unreasonable demands by armed groups that contravened WFP’s rules and regulations for delivering food for the hungry. The assistance of UN agencies such as WFP is critical in the strife-torn Horn of Africa nation, where ongoing drought and civil unrest has left millions in need of humanitarian aid. read more

Closing Bell TSX rises as energy stocks surge protests escalate in Egypt

TORONTO — The Toronto stock market ended Tuesday on a high note as a surge in oil prices boosted energy stocks and rumours of U.S. wireless carrier Verizon entering the Canadian market appeared to lose steam.Here are the closing numbers TSX — 12,178.38 +49.27 0.41% S&P 500 — 1,614.08 -0.88 -0.05% Dow — 14,932.41 -42.55 -0.28% Nasdaq — 3,433.40 -1.09 -0.03%The S&P/TSX composite index rose 49.27 points to 12,178.38.The Canadian dollar fell 0.28 of a cent to 94.80 cents US — its lowest closing price in nearly two years.On the energy front, oil prices were ahead amid political unrest as massive protests continued in Egypt to oust President Mohammed Morsi. The August crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange was ahead $1.61 at US$99.60 a barrel — the highest price it’s been since May 3, 2012.“There’s always that layer of geopolitical turmoil and uncertainty that adds a premium in the price of oil, above and beyond the supply and demand curve,” said Craig Fehr, a Canadian markets specialist at Edward Jones in St. Louis.He said the uncertainty keeps a premium on oil prices that “ebbs and flows over time.”“Broadly, the oil complex is in the middle of a tug of war,” he added.As a result, the TSX energy sector was up 1.2%.Meanwhile, telecom shares took a surprising upturn in the session, rising 1.6%, as investors bet that stock in Canadian carriers was oversold last week on expectations that Verizon Communications Inc. could enter the domestic market.Telus (TSX:T) was up 96 cents to $31.66 while Rogers (TSX:RCI.B) gained $1.17 to $42.37. BCE Inc. (TSX:BCE) shares dropped 11 cents to $43.01.Gold stocks led declines, off 2.9%, as August bullion moved down $12.30 to US$1,243.40 an ounce on the Nymex. Copper prices fell 1.4 cents to $3.14.On the TSX, major gold companies like Kinross Gold (TSX:K) and Iamgold Corp. (TSX:IMG) were all negative. However, Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX) was one of the biggest decliners in the sector, down 7.7%, after announcing last week a delay to its US$8.5-billion Pascua-Lama project in South America.Information technology stocks were down 0.7% as Research In Motion (TSX:BB) lost 7.8%, or 86 cents, to $10.22 after surprising investors with a first-quarter loss on Friday.On Wall Street, earlier gains were overshadowed by developments in Egypt. The Dow Jones industrials fell 42.55 points to 14,932.41, the Nasdaq fell 1.09 points to 3,433.4 and the S&P 500 index was 0.88 of a point lower at 1,614.08.Traders had found confidence in the latest U.S. auto sales numbers, which showed that shoppers who were once cautious, are returning to the market. Automaker Ford also reported its best June sales since 2006.The confluence of easy credit, low interest rates and smart, new models are driving auto sales sharply higher this year but analysts who follow the industry don’t see that changing any time soon.The U.S. government also released its May factory orders report which showed its third consecutive month of increases. The Commerce Department said Tuesday that factory orders rose 2.1% last month. April’s increase was revised higher to 1.3% from 1%.In corporate developments, Fortress Paper’s shares (TSX:FTP) fell nearly 4% after the company said an unexpected mechanical water pump failure will further delay the startup of a cogeneration facility at its specialty cellulose mill in Thurso, Que. The Vancouver-based company dropped 24 cents to $5.90.Overseas, Asian stock markets were mostly higher as speculation that lukewarm U.S. economic indicators would keep the Federal Reserve from ending its stimulus program early offset pessimism about China’s economy. Chinese manufacturing weakened in June amid a credit crunch. What investors were watching today:Greece has 3 days to deliver or risk bailout, EU officials warnBarrick’s writedowns seen approaching $10-billionBlackBerry needs to spend more cash to boost salesWinklevoss twins’ big Bitcoin bet has no shortage of potential pitfallsWhy BCE has the most to lose if Verizon comes to townWHAT’S ON DECK WEDNESDAYECONOMIC NEWSCANADA8:30 a.m.Merchandise trade balance (May): Economists expect a $70-billion deficit UNITED STATES7:30 a.m.Challenger layoff report (June) 8:15 a.m.ADP national employment report (June): Economists expect a gain of 160,000 jobs, up from last month 8:30 a.m.Weekly jobless claims: Economists expect 345,000 new claims Goods & Services trade balance (May): Economists expect a deficit of $40.1-billion 10 a.m.Non-manufacturing ISM index (June): Economists expect a reading of 54 read more

UN refugee agency criticizes draft European Union asylum legislation

“The Asylum Procedures Directive should aim at high standards of refugee protection and should strive for a truly meaningful level of harmonization,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Ruud Lubbers said in a letter to Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, current holder of the EU Presidency.”I regret to say that … there has been further substantial deterioration of the draft directive on both these counts.” If this process continues, he added, “I fear that this directive will be reduced to a catalogue of optional provisions, including significant departures from accepted international refugee and human rights law and principles established over more than 50 years.”In the letter, sent ahead of a 27 November meeting of EU interior ministers in Brussels, Mr. Lubbers suggested that if the text of the directive were not significantly improved it might be better to take it off the table altogether, until “a more propitious moment.”UNHCR also criticized the draft directive for providing minimal harmonization of asylum procedures across the EU, despite this being its main aim, and in an Aide-Memoire attached to the letter, listed eight separate elements of the directive that are causing concern, focusing in depth on three – ‘safe countries,’ border procedures and the right to remain during an appeal.The agency warned that according to the current text, asylum-seekers, including refugees, may be sent to countries with insufficient guarantees for their effective protection, and even to countries where they have never actually set foot. The Aide Memoire also pointed out that the directive defines no fewer than 15 categories of cases in which EU states may derogate from the right of applicants to remain in the country while an initial rejection of their case is being reviewed.UNHCR noted that in several EU countries between 30 and 60 percent of refugees are only recognized after their initial rejection is overturned on appeal. The possible forced return of such a wide range of people before their appeal is heard “would mark a serious deterioration of standards in most EU states and greatly increase the probability of miscarriage of justice,” it said. read more

UN strongly condemns bombings at its office in eastern Nepal

The United Nations today strongly condemned two explosions at the premises of the World Food Programme (WFP) in the east of strife-torn Nepal, caused when “socket bombs” were thrown over the fence surrounding the office.The UN said that its offices in Damak, Jhapa district, would remain closed pending an investigation into the blasts, but that there were no reports of casualties and no major damage was done to the office building.“The UN strongly condemns the attack which violates international humanitarian law and the UN Basic Operating Guidelines,” said a statement released in Katmandu.The UN works throughout the Himalayan kingdom to address the needs of the civilian population and, in the Damak area, it provides protection and assistance to over 105,000 Bhutanese refugees living in camps in the Jhapa and Morang districts in the east of the country.Programmes for the refugees are carried out by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and WFP. The Bhutanese refugees have been living in Nepal since the early 1990s, making it one of Asia’s most protracted refugee situations.Tensions in the camps are increasing as the Bhutanese refugees have little hope for the future, the UNHCR has said. Security concerns have also grown because of conflict between the Government of King Gyanendra and the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist). read more

Canada government backs mine rehabilitation plan

first_imgThe Government of Canada has invested C$184,000 ($138,978) in a climate change project that, the government says, lays the groundwork for the rehabilitation of the country’s abandoned and orphaned mines.This project, led by the Mining Innovation Rehabilitation and Applied Research Corporation, will develop a comprehensive approach for evaluating rehabilitation plans for abandoned mines through a review of 15-20 sites in Ontario and the Northwest Territories, including an in-depth review of three sites, the government said.“The ultimate goal of this project is to ensure that rehabilitation plans for today’s abandoned mines will address the climate change risks of tomorrow, while protecting the health and safety of Canadians as we enhance our stewardship of the land around us,” the government said.Paul Lefebvre, Parliamentary Secretary to the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, announced the investment: “Our government is supporting projects that help us expand our understanding of the impacts of climate change,” he said. “With this knowledge, we can help ensure today’s plans for abandoned and orphaned mine rehabilitation will reduce the climate-change risks of tomorrow.”Today’s announcement supports the objectives of the Adaptation and Resilience pillar of the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change by turning scientific information and traditional knowledge into action, the government said. It is funded through Natural Resources Canada’s Climate Change Adaptation Program.last_img read more

There is way less salt in your sausages these days

first_imgThere is way less salt in your sausages these days But we still eat more than the recommended 5g of salt per day. Share24 Tweet Email “SIGNIFICANT REDUCTIONS” IN levels of salt were found in Irish processed food during the latest tests undertaken by the Food Safety Authority (FSAI).It has an annual salt monitoring programme which has been going since 2003. In 2015, the FSAI examined 530 samples of processed food across four food product categories, including processed meats, breads, breakfast cereals and spreadable fats.Today, it said:Significant reductions in salt content was observed across a variety of products, but most notably in processed meats such as rashers, cooked ham and sausages.The foods it found reductions of salt in included:Processed MeatsRashers -27%Cooked ham -15%Sausage products -11%BreadsWhite bread -17%Wholemeal bread -25%Wholegrain bread -29%Specialty products -42%Breakfast CerealsCornflake based -63%Rice based -48%Bran based -39%Multigrain cereal -38%Spreadable FatsBlended spread (>62%, but <80% fat) -29%All blends and blended spreads -27% Short URL By Aoife Barry 28 Comments Source: Shutterstock/Syda ProductionsDr Anderson said that while salt plays an important role in the diet, people in Ireland are simply eating too much of it and this increases the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.“The addition of salt at the table or in cooking by consumers can represent up to 20%-30% of a person’s total salt intake,” he pointed out.The FSAI wants people to make sure they’re reading product labels, choosing low salt or salt free options and cutting back on the high levels of salt added during cooking and at the table.“If you are unsure about the level of salt you are consuming in any product please refer to the nutrition labelling Reference Intake (RI) which will give you the percentage of RI per portion of food,” explained Dr Anderson.But the buck doesn’t stop with consumers. The FSAI said that it believes that the reformulation of foods must be driven by the industry.“Overall we are satisfied with the latest salt reductions and this outlines Irish manufacturers’ commitment and positive contribution being made to tackle health issues. Going into the future, the industry needs to pursue further research and development to achieve further reductions where possible”, concluded Dr Anderson.Read: These 11 food businesses were closed last month> Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 9,025 Views Nov 3rd 2016, 2:14 PM But according Dr Wayne Anderson, Director of Food Science and Standards, FSAI, although the salt in products are dropping, we’re still eating too much salt here in Ireland.The average salt intake of Irish consumers still exceeds the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommended 5g salt per day.“The estimated average daily salt intake in Irish adults is currently 11.1g salt per/day in men and 8.5g salt per/day in women,” he pointed out.We would ask consumers to read product labels for information on salt content and reduce the amount of salt they add themselves in cooking and at the table.

JO 2012 des risques de perturbations sur le réseau Internet

first_imgJO 2012: des risques de perturbations sur le réseau InternetLe gouvernement britannique met en garde les Anglais et les invite à anticiper des pannes sur les réseaux Internet et de téléphonie mobile, lors des prochains Jeux Olympiques, qui se dérouleront à Londres. Si Londres développe ses infrastructures en vue des Jeux Olympiques, il se pourrait qu’il y ait une faiblesse au niveau des réseaux internet et téléphonique. Un fichier PDF, intitulé “Préparez votre entreprise pour les Jeux” et posté sur le site officiel de Londres 2012 par le gouvernement, présente une série de conseils en vue des problèmes liés au réseau qui pourraient intervenir pendant les Jeux. Le document recommande tout d’abord aux utilisateurs, notamment les entreprises, de prendre leur mal en patience et de bien vouloir être indulgents. En effet, les réseaux Internet et de téléphonie mobile pourraient sérieusement ralentir durant les Jeux. Cela serait dû à l’inondation des réseaux pendant l’événement. Si Londres semble très fière de ses installations pour les JO, la perturbation des réseaux pourrait entacher cette réussite. Le document prévient qu’il est “possible que les services internet soient plus lents pendant les Jeux. Dans des cas plus graves, il pourraient même être coupés. Cela sera dû à une augmentation du nombre de connexions”. Actuellement, le gouvernement négocie avec les Fournisseurs d’Accès à Internet (FAI) pour introduire des plafonds de transferts de données pendant les Jeux. Une mesure qui semble un peu injuste, notamment pour les Anglais et leurs entreprises, qui se verront réduire leur débit Internet, juste pour le confort des spectateurs venus assister aux Jeux. Ainsi, les FAI devraient “introduire des plafonds de données pendant les périodes de pointe afin de répartir la charge et fournir un service égal à l’ensemble de sa clientèle”. Le réseau de téléphonie mobile est également susceptible d’être perturbé ou, du moins, fortement ralenti. Cependant, le gouvernement précise qu’une “la capacité de la couverture téléphonique sera augmentée pendant la tenue des Jeux. Cela devrait permettre aux clients de bénéficier d’un service correct pendant les Jeux Olympiques”. Toutefois, aux heures d’affluence, les réseaux seront inévitablement ralentis par la hausse des volumes de trafic. Les appels, les e-mails et le téléchargement de données sont les plus touchés par ces perturbations. Le 13 février 2012 à 11:40 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Emergency services prepare for holiday

first_imgFines of $250 to $500 can be issued for violating the fireworks curfew, using fireworks within city parks, hazardous use of fireworks, and using illegal fireworks.The fireworks shows keep you entertained and grilled food keeps you satisfied, but who is keeping you safe on what is often dubbed the most dangerous holiday?Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency will add two to three extra people to field 911 calls from 7 p.m. Wednesday until 5 a.m. Thursday.Katy Myers, operations manager for CRESA, said the agency discourages people from calling to report noise complaints unless they suspect hazardous or illegal fireworks use or that fireworks are being discharged past curfew. On the Fourth of July, though, 911 is prepared for anything, and how busy the phones are varies from year to year.“Every year is different,” Myers said. “It depends on the day of the week and the weather.”Camas-Washougal Fire Chief Nick Swinhart said a brush unit will be on patrol from 6 p.m. to midnight in Camas while an engine and brush crew will patrol Washougal after the Camas-Washougal Concert Series fireworks display. A deputy fire marshal will also be on patrol.“July 4 usually tends to be a busy time for us,” he said.Firefighters will keep an eye out for people using illegal fireworks or using legal ones in an unsafe manner, Swinhart said. Firefighters tend to see a few grass, brush or roof fires and the occasional fireworks-related injury.last_img read more

Walker Hires Mediator to Help Lawmakers Pass A Budget

first_imgGov. Bill Walker has hired a mediator to help lawmakers reach a deal on the budget. Walker made the announcement at an Anchorage news conference this afternoon. He also said state agencies began sending layoff notices to 10,000 workers who could lose their jobs if the legislature doesn’t pass a budget by July 1st, when the new fiscal year begins.Listen now:Walker says lawmakers are arguing over a relatively small piece of the budget:“The amount of difference being argued in the legislature is really approximately 1 percent of the problem. We have $3.5 or $4 billion deficit this year and next year as well. We want to focus on the 99 percent opportunity we have to solve this going forward, and we are.”The Senate Finance Committee yesterday rejected a compromise between the House majority and minority.The Governor says he can’t force the various parties to try mediation to resolve their differences, but he thinks it could help. He retained the services of Anchorage lawyer and mediator Matt Peterson.Peterson says he got a call from Walker early this morning. He says he usually mediates complex litigation involving business disputes, and he thinks the situation in the legislature isn’t so different:“And in my experience if you can get everyone talking, identify the areas that are agreed upon, and then focus on fair negotiations for the remaining part, as I sit here right now, I’m optimistic this can be mediated.”Peterson says he’s cleared his schedule for the rest of the week.Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Democratic-led House minority says negotiations were occurring between the House minority leader and Senate president this afternoon.Christopher Clark is a former reporter and legislative aid who has been watching the action unfold. He identifies one of the biggest sticking points.last_img read more

Nones in Juneau changing religious landscape

first_imgGrass grows in a planter off a window of St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church in downtown Juneau on July 15, 2017. The Catholic Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is in the background. (Photo by Jeremy Hsieh/KTOO)Today, Alaskans are on average less religious than the rest of the country, and a subset who don’t identify with any particular religion is growing, according to data from the Pew Research Center.Listen now“I grew up fairly religious, went to organized church, and then kept that going probably through the first year of college, and kind of lessened that. Now I don’t practice anything specific,” Chelsea Maller, a Juneau local, said.Despite this, Maller said she still prays.“I would say that’s the most consistent thing I keep up with if anything,” Maller said. “Just giving myself a peace even if I don’t necessarily feel like if I need to go worship in a church or anything like that.”Maller falls into a growing group of the religiously unaffiliated, which can include anyone from atheists to the “spiritual but not religious” types.The Pew Research Center refers to this group collectively as “nones,” which originates from the “none of the above” option on a religion survey.In Alaska, about 3 out of 10 people are nones. Nationwide, it’s 2 out of 10. Both have grown since 2007.A common misconception about nones is they don’t have any beliefs — but like Maller many of them fall into a spiritual gray area.Elizabeth Drescher, the author of the book, “Choosing our Religion: the Spiritual Lives of America’s Nones” conducted her own research on the subject.“It turns out that about 70 percent of the religiously unaffiliated, or nones, believe in God or a life force or some kind of higher power,” Drescher said. “They don’t identify with a particular religious tradition, even though they might participate in things that are kind of obviously religious to most of us.”It’s not uncommon for nones to pray, attend religious services or consider religion important in their lives.“That package that’s called religion, some of it works for me, but mostly not so much all the time,” Drescher said, voicing what many nones feel. “I’m happy to take some of those resources, but I don’t belong to that.”Drescher hasn’t studied nones in Alaska specifically, but she guessed a seasonal workforce and fewer connections within the community could contribute to more nones.Across the country, religious unaffiliation has increased in every race, age, gender, education and socioeconomic background.This concerns some religious leaders, and there are theories why people are leaving traditional religion, such as a more scientific world view, seeking out a more individualized religion and LGBTQ and women’s rights.Juneau local Rachel Smith grew up Mormon but doesn’t align with the religion anymore.“Mormonism is so – it’s very black and white. I just never felt that way, it’s a little, depending on who teaches it, it’s a little bit demeaning towards women,” Smith said.Pat Casey, a pastor for the Catholic Church here in Juneau, said there are a lot of nones in town, but he also sees a lot of people who mix religious traditions.“People tell me you know I’m a Christian, I believe in God but I like to do it in my own way,” Casey said. “You know, the yoga movement and other types of meditation.”Casey said to say the Catholic Church is shrinking is a misconception. Nationally, immigrants are a major source of growth in the Catholic Church. Catholicism is still really popular in Latin America and the Philippines. But what draws people to Catholicism now?“I’ve had a number of people come to me who want to talk about the Catholic Church where it is now, versus where it was when they left,” Casey said. “Many of them find that challenging and welcoming.”In 1966, Time magazine published one of their most iconic covers ever. In bold red against a black background, a single three-word question sparked outrage and backlash:“Is God Dead?”Half a century later, the issues the magazine explored may sound familiar: Explaining the divine in an increasingly secular world, how theologians responded, and the move toward individualized religion.last_img read more

CM wants a dedicated drinking water reservoir for Hyderabad

first_imgHyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has instructed the officials concerned to construct a dedicated drinking water reservoir for Greater Hyderabad to mitigate the drinking water problem and to put an end to the drinking water crisis forever in the twin cities. The Chief Minister suggested that Godavari water from Mallanna Sagar and Konda Pochamma Reservoirs should be supplied to fill up the proposed Reservoir whenever it is required and from time to time. He also instructed the Irrigation, RWS officers to immediately prepare estimates on the proposed Reservoir, pipes etc., after having a joint meeting. The CM also instructed that every household within the ORR should be given drinking water connection.

Minister Malla Reddy, MLA Sabita Indrareddy, Government Chief Advisor Rajiv Sharma, Principal Secretary Narsing Rao, Principal Secretary (Municipal) Arvind Kumar, GHMC Commissioner Dana Kishore, Commissioner (Endowments) Anil Kumar, Medchel Collector MV Reddy and others participated.

Despite this, these are not fulfilling the drinking water needs of people in Hyderabad. This should not happen in future. Mallanna Sagar and Konda Pochampally reservoirs are getting water from the Kaleswaram project. The government has issued orders allocating 10 percent of the water for the drinking water purposes. Hence, from these two reservoirs drinking water should be supplied to Hyderabad. Construct a reservoir and water treatment plant at Kesavaram. From here drinking water should be supplied to the city. For this prepare the estimates forthwith. While diverting water from Krishna and Godavari rivers, construct the reservoir simultaneously,” the CM instructed.last_img read more

LISTEN How The UT System Spends Portions Of Its 20 Billion Endowment

first_img 00:00 /19:56 Listen It’s no secret that college is getting more expensive – or that America’s student debt has erupted into a full-on crisis. But it’s not just loans that are putting pressure on Americans seeking an education. This segment, produced by Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX — and reported by The Texas Tribune’s Matthew Watkins and Neena Satija of the Tribune and Reveal — explains that students face a variety of obstacles, from rising tuition rates to hard-line immigration laws.A little over a year ago, administrators tapped Bill McRaven, a former four-star admiral, as chancellor of the University of Texas System. McRaven immediately proposed a series of “quantum leaps” that he promised would put UT’s enormous endowment to good use – and make it “the envy of every system in the nation.” Several huge purchases later (including a land parcel worth more than $215 million), questions still linger about whether students are benefiting from McRaven’s sweeping changes.Reveal is a weekly radio program produced by The Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX.

Taiwans Latest Hotel Has DeckedOut Gaming Rigs in Every Room

first_img Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech SuitsSwatting Attack Targets Fortnite World Champion Stay on target I recently got back from a long vacation. Probably the first one in my adult life. It was amazing. I camped on beaches, saw some redwoods, had a time. I also played zero video games. That was, in part, because I play them for a living, and also because it’s something that I can pretty much any time. When I want to go somewhere, I want to see what’s there. Watch sunsets, standard crap.If you are a hardcore gamer that wants to shoot up some digital dudes (and you don’t already have your own gaming notebook), then you might consider a stay at Taiwan’s i hotel.Rooms here come with two top-end gaming rigs, an extra-wide desk, DXRacer gaming chairs and, of course, all the standard hotel amenities. You’ll get a floofy bed, stellar lighting, and giant windows to look out at the Taiwanese skyline… assuming your eyes aren’t glued to the screen. Each room is $100 a night, too, which isn’t too shabby considering what many hotels cost a fair bit more and without a 4K-ready, 1080ti-powered battle station. If you’re more the LAN type, i hotel’s lobby has a dozen more ASUS Republic of Gamers-branded machines arranged two opposing banks that form a semi-circle.The set-up is designed for eSports and gaming fanatics with every conceivable feature and amenity geared towards the nerdiest of the nerds. When the elevator arrives at your floor, it doesn’t let out a pleasant chime. Instead it plays a shortened rendition of the Imperial March from Star Wars, perhaps getting a little too literal with the “battle station” theme.This looks like it’s a blast if that’s your jam. The hotel doubles as an internet café, of sorts, with hourly rates for those not looking to stay the whole night, so if you’re in Taiwan and want to check out the latest games or brush up on your League skills, check it out.via 168inn.com.twLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
