The new roles will be primarily software-development, technical support and sales positions to expand its product line and reach new markets around the world. “This is a great example of how trade and investment attraction work together to create growth opportunities for domestic businesses,” said Stephen Lund, president and CEO of NSBI. “We want to work with more companies in Nova Scotia that recognize the existing opportunities beyond our backdoor and help them go for it – just like Nicom did.” Established in 2006 as a merger between Nicom Limited and DDA Solutions Inc., Nicom’s primary focus has been on developing software and providing support for the domestic market. Nova Scotia Business Inc. is Nova Scotia’s private-sector-led business development agency. NSBI is the investment attraction arm of the province and helps businesses in Nova Scotia meet growth potential through advisory services, trade development, financing and venture capital.last_img read more

Bangladesh and Afghanistan are the other two teams in the group (Group E). Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhEach team will play home and away matches till June next year. The top team from each of the eight groups and the four best runners-up across all th groups will advance to the third round. “All the qualifying round matches are going to be real test for us. We will give our best to go to the next round,” Udanta said when asked if India can beat Oman at home. “Each match is crucial for us. Higher or lower rank does not matter on the pitch. It is the performance which is going to decide the game (against Oman),” the 23-year-old attacking lynchpin said in an interview.

The last time India and Oman played against each other was in December last year in the run-up to the Asian Cup in January and the match ended in a goal-less draw. “Playing in front of the home crowd has always been amazing. They are there to back us throughout the game. It gives us hope till the end of the game. We will try to better our performance from the last campaign and we will work on our mistakes,” said the Manipuri player who made his India debut in March 2016. Udanta said the team has learnt from its strengths and weaknesses during the Kings’ Cup in Thailand (in June) and Intercontinental Cup in Ahmedabad (in July) and the players have been working to improve their performances in the national camp in Goa. “We all are doing hard work in the ground and gym. All the boys look fit. We are all hoping to do our best on the field. From the Kings’ Cup and Hero Intercontinental Cup, we got to learn our strengths and weaknesses and now we are working on them accordingly,” he said. New head coach Igor Stimac took over the reins in May and since then he has been trying to change the playing style of the team to possession football, building from the back and making smooth transition to attacking. “All the boys want to play with the ball and the coach wants to build up from behind. But it is not easy so we try again and again. Mistakes will happen but the coach is there to help us with our mistakes. I like whatever works for all of us,” Udanta said.last_img read more

Indian Government to act as guarantor in fishermen issue

He explained that External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had attended Saturday’s discussion despite being treated at the hospital.On the status of the Tamil Nadu government’s package proposal for diversification, he said the issue was not the release of funds but the manner in which the funds would be spent. Details would have to be worked out through detailed discussions between the Centre and the State government. (Colombo Gazette) When it was pointed out that leaders of the Indian fishermen had expressed disappointment over the absence of any announcement on the release of impounded boats, he replied that the Sri Lankan government had said that it was not against the release but the fishermen of the Northern Province did not favour the move. On the period of transition from bottom trawling to any other sustainable fishing practice, the Union Minister said India had initially asked for three years. Finally, it came down to one year. “But, the fishermen of Sri Lanka are unrelenting. One of their leaders said ‘we won’t allow bottom trawling even for a second.’” The Indian Central Government is willing to act as a guarantor to help resolve the problems of fishermen, says Pon Radhakrishnan, Union Minister of State for Shipping, The Hindu newspaper reported.Asked why the Union Government should not give an assurance to fishermen of the Northern Province that it would ensure that Indian fishermen honour any agreement on the time frame for withdrawal of bottom trawling, Radhakrishnan, who participated in the talks held on Saturday at the level of Ministers of India and Sri Lanka, told The Hindu on Tuesday that “if they (the fishermen of Sri Lanka) come for a settlement and convey their position to us through their government, we are ready.” He added that “negotiations cannot be held merely on the basis of suspicion. Then, there won’t be any result.” read more

Wimbledon ring of steel goes up as police chief warns vehicle terror

Further barriers continue to be installed The barriers have been bolted to the pavements around the All England ClubCredit:Paul Grover In October last year an Islamic terrorist drove a rented pickup truck into cyclists and runners along the Hudson River Park’s bike path in New York, killing eight people and injuring eleven others.Superintendent Jo Edwards, who is taking charge of the Metropolitan Police operation at Wimbledon for the second year running, told The Daily Telegraph: “Driving a vehicle onto the pavement into a crowd is a very simple method of attack which we need to mitigate against as far as we can.”She added: “The threat hasn’t gone away. We’ve successfully foiled a number of plots during the course of the past year and so we haven’t seen the devastating incidents we saw in 2017, but we are working hard all the time to deter further threats.” The barriers have been bolted to the pavements around the All England Club Other security measures at the championships will include ‘queue profiling’, with uniformed police, undercover officers and security staff monitoring the more than 40,000 daily visitors who queue for entry to the grounds for suspicious behaviour.Bags will be searched and the grounds will be patrolled by armed police, who will operate a shoot-to-kill policy to counter the threat of suicide attacks.Police remain mindful that the Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi detonated his device as they were leaving Ariana Grande’s concert in May last year, killing 22 young fans and parents and injuring dozens of others. There have also been recent vehicle attacks against crowds of pedestrians, with 10 people killed in Canada in April when a man driving a van targeted people in Toronto’s business district. The Met has liaised with the intelligence services in the run up to Wimbledon over the possibility of terrorists targeting the tournament.With thousands of people attending Wimbledon on a daily basis, including dozens of celebrities and VIPs in the Royal Box, the event is one of the most prestigious in the international calendar.The UK’s terror threat level remains at the second highest level of severe, meaning that an attack is highly likely but not imminent.The AELTC said: “Throughout the year the AELTC has been working closely with the Metropolitan Police and other relevant organisations to ensure that security measures at The Championships are comprehensive and proportionate to the threat level in the UK.”Terror experts said Wimbledon needs to maintain a high level of alert in the face of the continued worldwide terror threat.Tom Wilson, Research Fellow at the Centre on Radicalisation and Terrorism at the Henry Jackson Society, said: “Given that Islamic State have encouraged attacks during the World Cup, it is right to take measures to prevent attacks at other sporting events. Vehicles can be used to inflict terrible casualties during popular events.” Further barriers continue to be installedCredit:Paul Grover Dozens of new security barriers have been erected at the All England Club to protect next week’s Wimbledon crowds from a vehicle ramming attack, with Scotland Yard warning the terror threat has not gone away.More than 50 heavy duty steel posts, which are designed to be dismantled at the end of the championships, have been bolted into the pavement on the approach to the grounds in SW19, along the route taken by thousands of spectators each morning and evening.The waist-high posts are a new feature of the ‘ring of steel’ thrown around the All England Lawn Tennis Club to guard against the nightmare scenario of a vehicle being used to mount pavements and ram innocent tennis fans.Anti-vehicle barriers have also been laid along the pavement leading to entrances on Church Road and a heavy steel cage lines a section of the pavement at the point where the queues will enter the grounds.The security of the championships, which open on Monday, remains the chief priority for the police and AELTC, with organisers determined to protect one of the highest profile sporting events in the world against the sort of vehicle attacks seen at Westminster Bridge, London Bridge and Finsbury Park last year, which claimed the lives of 14 people. Super. Edwards said tennis fans had been reassured by the presence of armed officers around the grounds during the past two championships.“We want to deter would be hostile terrorist activity while at the same time reassure the public that we are there to help them enjoy the event,” she said.

Mammoet moving Gällivare housing to make way for mine development

first_imgHeavy transportation and logistics specialist Mammoet has finished moving the first houses from the Swedish city of Gällivare to nearby Koskullskulle. Gällivare has been built on iron ore deposits and the houses in the city are making way for new mine development. Because many of these houses are of high cultural value, the governmental mining company wanted to move them in one piece.Preparations have been going on for several months. Mammoet’s subcontractor Nylundh has been digging out the soil from underneath the houses since June. Once Nylundh has dug out and fortified each house, it is lowered onto Mammoet’s transportation equipment. Mammoet used two prime movers and 18 axles of conventional trailers to transport each of the houses across approximately 7 km to their new destination. The houses vary in size, with a weight ranging between 45 and 220 t, the biggest one measuring 25 m in length, 12 m in width and 13.3 m in height. The houses that have been moved will now be renovated. Once the houses are habitable again, the families living in the second set of houses to be moved will be housed there. In total, Mammoet will be moving 30 houses from Gällivare to Koskullskulle.All 30 houses have to be at their new location at the end of 2017. Amongst the companies that bid for the job, Mammoet was the only company that could commit to this deadline. Preparations started in June 2016 and Mammoet says it completed the first part of this project ahead of schedule one day before the first snow started to fall, “to the great satisfaction of all parties involved.” Most of this was due to the great teamwork between Nylundh, NYAB and Mammoet say Celina Peeters and Roy Högberg of Mammoet. “Our client and our subcontractor have played a big part in making this possible. If the houses were not freed up in the air, we couldn’t transport anything. And if the new foundations hadn’t been ready, we couldn’t put them there. They have done a great job.”last_img read more

Commissioners other officials spar over pay

first_imgThree Clark County officials Tuesday balked at the county commissioners’ proposal to lower pay for the District 3 commissioner seat, saying it would also reduce their salaries.The District 3 position, currently filled by appointed Commissioner Ed Barnes, is the highest paid of the three seats, receiving an annual salary of $106,224. Under the new proposal, pay for the position would drop to $102,224 next year, the same amount as the other two positions, and possibly stay there until 2018. The move is expected to save the county $46,400 during the next biennium.At the same time, the commissioners approved bumping their per-month vehicle allowance by $100 starting next year. They’ll receive $700 a month, resulting in $25,200 a year dedicated to the commissioners’ cars.Commissioners approved the ordinance decreasing the District 3 seat’s pay, but not before Auditor Greg Kimsey, Assessor Peter Van Nortwick and Treasurer Doug Lasher voiced their disapproval. They said it was inappropriate to cut their pay at a time when the county’s hired employees continue to receive cost-of-living adjustments. Their salaries, along with Clerk Scott Weber’s, are tied to what the top-paid commissioner receives. They receive 95 percent of that salary.last_img read more

Rishabh Pant did spot fixing IPL in trouble again Twitter cries foul

first_imgPant made a strange prediction which turned out to be true.IPL InstagramRishabh Pant’s verbal prowess behind the stumps has become extremely popular since India’s tour of Australia. Known to be a bit of a loose cannon, the young wicketkeeper has courted major controversy for his comments during Delhi Capitals’ match against Kolkata Knight Riders at Feroz Shah Kotla on March 30.The incident in question happened when KKR was batting and had just lost their first wicket for the score of 16. Robbie Uthappa had come out to replace Nikhil Naik who was dismissed by Sandeep Lamichhane and 3.4 overs had been bowled. As Uthappa was taking guard, Pant said from behind the stumps, “Yeh toh waise bhi chauka hai”. He meant to say that the next ball will anyway be a four. As it turned out, the fifth ball of the fourth over went to the boundary through cover. @DineshKarthik Today’s match was fixed how Rishabh pant already knews that next ball going to be four on 3.5 it means match was fixed— Telesh lalwani (@TeleshLalwani) March 30, 2019The truth of the prediction made by Pant prompted fans on social media to allege a fixing angle. Here are some of the tweets. Darpan Bhagabaty – Is IPL 2019 fixed? Why Rishabh pant was sure that the next delivery would go for four?MH – Fixing is directly proportional to Indian Premier League. Saw a live scene where Rishabh Pant was heard saying ‘Yeh to wese bhi chauka hai’ before Sandip Lamichane bowled to Robin Uthappa. Guess what, the ball went on to the boundary. Lol.UNDERDOG – rishabh pant did spot fixing and also match was fixed..If pant wanted he can hit in moment delhi stop himself to hit..Even shaw were thereTalesh lalwani – Match is fixed How Rishabh Pant already knew before balling that it was four Match Fix kiya h tabhi KKR DC se kese haar skti haiAshish Vyas –  IPL, BCCI, Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Delhi Police, BJP just before 3.5 rishabh pant caught on stump mic saying “Ye to waise bhi chokka hai” and the next ball goes for four.Clearly match fixing. commentators totally ignored this thingshubham verma – What Rishabh pant just said “Yeh toh aise bhi 4ka hai”. Are IPL players involved in any kind ko fixing. Anyone certainly have doubts comming around in their minds after all.Coming to the match, KKR had lost five wickets for just 61 runs but made a fantastic recovery courtesy the power of Andre Russell and prowess of skipper Dinesh Karthik to reach 185 in their quota of 20 overs. Delhi Capitals, bolstered by the brilliance of Prithvi Shaw, matched their rivals prompting a super over. Kagiso Rabada turned hero for the home team as he defended 10 runs wherein he got the dangerous Russell out with a perfect yorker. Unfortunately, the Pant stump microphone incident is overshadowing one of the best matches in IPL history.last_img read more

This New Japanese Gum Claims It Can Help Improve Your Memory

first_img Recycled Chewing Gum Gives These Shoes Serious SolePut gum in your head to get songs out of it Japan is rife with so many awesome treats that it’s hard to remember what’s out there. That’s why it’s such a boon that there’s a new treat, from Lotte, the very same company that brings us deliciously delicate chocolate treats, that can help improve your memory. I know I’ve forgotten several important things here and there that this tasty little morsel could have helped me remember time and time again, but alas — it didn’t exist. Now that Lotte has come to my rescue, how will my life change for the better now that I’m not so forgetful anymore?The gum is called Ha ni Tsukinikui Gum — Kioku Ryoku o Ijisuru Type (Gum which Doesn’t Stick to Teeth — Memory Maintaining Type) and is incredibly difficult to remember the title of, but maybe that’s the point. It’s supposed to have a distinct minty flavor and comes in stick and pellet pieces so you can chew on whatever makes you happy. It features ginkgo biloba extract, which is the real point of the gum’s existence, after all. It’s an herb that’s always been said to improve the brain’s power of recollection. Since you’re absorbing the ginkgo biloba via the gum as you chew it, it could help you improve your memory and recall issues.via you’d probably have to chew a whole heck of a lot of gum to help with that, so if you’re going to rely on gum to do all that, you probably have more problems than something gum can help with. Remember to always check with your doctor if you’re going to start any sort of regimen like this, even if it doesn’t seem like a big deal.

Ripple is a vegan milk alternative made from peas

first_imgBut, hey, sometimes you have to make sacrifices when you commit to changing your diet. Adapting to the taste of Ripple probably wouldn’t take you that long.As for me, I’m having a hard time not thinking about Fred Sanford when I see the word Ripple printed on a bottle (for those of you who missed the 70s, Ripple was a cheap, fortified red wine). I’m guessing you wouldn’t want to attempt making Champipple out of this stuff, though. <> The dairy case used to be packed with cow milk. These days, it’s full of alternatives like soy, almond, cashew, and rice. And now they’ll have to make room for pea milk.There are plenty of people out there with soy and nut allergies, which really limits your choices if you want to go vegan. And if you’re looking for protein in your milk, the plant-based options currently available don’t really cut it.That’s where Ripple comes in. Its creators figured that it was time for a dairy-free option that was high in protein, low in sugar, and still delicious to drink. Ripple contains 8 grams of protein per cup, which is right up there with cow’s milk. It also has 50% more calcium and one Ripple variety contains no sugar — the vanilla, chocolate, and original do, but up to 30% less than their dairy equivalents.High in protein and calcium… low in sugar… and from a sustainable source? What’s the catch, you’re asking? Well, based on comments from people who’ve actually tasted Ripple it sounds like a bit of an acquired taste. Some found it a bit too savory, others say it’s quite thick, and one Business Insider staffer said it had a “prickly, sour aftertaste.”last_img read more

The Worlds Oldest Vertebrate which can Feed on Reindeer

first_imgIn 2016 the planet’s oldest vertebrate was revealed. The Greenland Shark — which has a conservation status of “Near Threatened” — is thought to be around 500 years old. This predator can grow up to approximately 7 meters (23 feet), adding less than a cm to its length over the course of one year. It primarily feeds on other fish, though has been known to chow down on an unlucky seal or even a whole reindeer!The study behind the find was led by Julius Nielsen from the University of Copenhagen. Examining 28 female Greenland sharks, the team worked out their age using an unusual blend of the natural world and a dramatic, man-made phenomenon.Greenland shark (Somniosus microcephalus)Typically fish would be assessed based on “earstones”, the build-up of calcium carbonates. These growth layers can be counted, with a natural comparison being the rings of a tree.However, things were different here, owing to the Greenland shark being a “soft shark” without hardened vertebrae. So where did researchers find their solution? The answer, surprisingly, lay in the devastating legacy of atomic warfare.Male Narwhal or Unicorn (Monodon monoceros) and Greenland Shark (Somniosus microcephalus).The Guardian wrote in 2016 that the scientists “made use of a side-effect of atomic bomb tests which took place in the 1950s: when the bombs were detonated, they increased the levels of carbon-14 in the atmosphere. The spike, or pulse, in carbon-14, entered the marine food web across the North Atlantic no later than the early 1960s. That provides a useful time-stamp, says Nielsen.”From there the next step was to study the sharks’ eye tissue, in which the foreign material could be found.As a 2017 LiveScience article put it, “Eye tissue analysis presented a probability range suggesting that the sharks were at least 272 years old, and could potentially be as much as 512 years old.”Size of a Greenland shark. marine animal CC BY-SA 4.0However, they were careful not to set the discovery in stone, quoting Nielsen himself, who said “It’s important to keep in mind there’s some uncertainty with this estimate. But even the lowest part of the age range — at least 272 years — still makes Greenland sharks the longest-living vertebrate known to science.”So while the Greenland shark may not be quite as old as initially thought, it still does pretty well on the age scale.And it appears size doesn’t matter when it comes to this particular pecking order. The smaller species of the freshwater polyp called “hydra” has the capacity to survive indefinitely, thanks to an ability to regenerate its own cells.Small boat, Icebergs, Ilulissat, GreenlandPlacing the Greenland shark news in context, the Guardian mentioned it being “far ahead of even the oldest elephant in captivity, Lin Wang, who died aged 86” and “far longer than the official record for humans, held by 122-year-old Frenchwoman Jeanne Louise Calment.”When it comes to the oldest animal outright, there’s what might be described as a merciless tale to tell. Ming was a 507-year old clam who met a sad end at the hands of an unsuspecting research team from Bangor University.Teeth, Etc, of Greenland Shark.Plucked out of Icelandic waters in 2006, and with his shell opened up after a long and exceedingly wet life, he didn’t stand a chance.The Independent wrote in 2013 that his age “had been calculated by counting the growth rings on the hinge of the clam,” yet due to its age “the rings had crowded together making them difficult to distinguish, with more than 500 packed into space just millimetres across.”Read another story from us: Going Inside Megalodons – The Ancient Giant Shark that Continues to FascinateAt first experts believed him to be 405 years old but adjusted that to 507 after referring to the shell’s less complex exterior rings. Either way, it was bad news for Ming, named after the Chinese ruler from 1499, the supposed year of the clam’s birth. It’s a welcome reminder that unlocking the mysteries of the deep is as perilous for the inhabitants as it is for those intrepid scientists.last_img read more

Home Prices Advance for Third Straight Month CoreLogic

first_imgHome Prices Advance for Third Straight Month: CoreLogic in Data July 2, 2012 436 Views For the third month in a row, home prices posted both yearly and monthly gains, according to “”CoreLogic’s””: May Home Price Index (HPI) report.[IMAGE] When including distressed sales, home prices increased 2 percent in May 2012 from May 2011 and moved up by 1.8 percent month-over-month. When excluding distressed sales, prices made even greater strides, with the year-over-year increase at 2.7 percent and month-over-month increase at 2.3 percent. Distressed sales include short sales and REO transactions. “”The recent upward trend in U.S. home prices is an encouraging signal that we may be seeing a bottoming of the housing down cycle,”” said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic. “”Tighter inventory is contributing to broad, but modest, price gains nationwide and more significant gains in the harder-hit markets, like Phoenix.”” The CoreLogic Pending HPI points to another monthly gain in June. Prices should increase next month by 1.4 percent when including distressed sales, and when excluding distressed sales, prices are expected to rise by 2 percent. [COLUMN_BREAK]Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic, explained that much of the home price appreciation seen is due to the lower-priced segment of the market, which is rebounding more quickly than in the upper end. “”Home prices below 75 percent of the national median increased 5.7 percent from a year ago, compared to only a 1.8 percent increase for prices 125 percent or more of the median,”” said Fleming.When including distressed sales, the five states with the greatest increases were Arizona (+12.0 percent), Idaho (+9.2 percent), South Dakota (+8.7 percent), Montana (+8.2 percent) and Michigan (+7.9 percent). The states that posted the greatest losses were Delaware (-9.0 percent), Rhode Island (-4.4 percent), Illinois (-4.2 percent), Alabama (-4.1 percent) and Georgia (-4.0 percent). When excluding distressed sales, Montana (+9.1 percent) posted the greatest gain, followed by South Dakota (+8.5 percent), Arizona (+7.3 percent), Idaho (+6.6 percent), and Wyoming (+6.6 percent). On the other hand, Delaware saw prices decrease by -7.8 percent, with Rhode Island (-3.8 percent), Alabama (-2.8 percent), Connecticut (-2.2 percent), and Kentucky (-1.2 percent) also posting losses. The number of Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) reporting price declines is shrinking, with 29 out of 100 seeing losses in May compared to 41 in April. Phoenix saw prices appreciate the most when including and excluding distressed sales with gains of 14.7 percent and 10 percent, respectively. Houston, Washington D.C., Dallas, and Philadelphia all saw gains of at least 2 percent when including and excluding distressed sales. Headquartered in Santa Ana, California, CoreLogic is a provider of information, analytics and business services.center_img Agents & Brokers Home Prices Home Values Investors Lenders & Servicers Service Providers Valuation 2012-07-02 Esther Cho Sharelast_img read more
