Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has condemned racial slur made at Scott Sinclair during the Scottish League Cup final.McInnes has slammed the Aberdeen fan who racially abused the Celtic player, but he insists it was a situation regarding an individual rather than a widespread problem for the Pittodrie club.Sinclair revealed his disappointments regarding the situation on social media after seeing a video of the racial slur aimed at him as he had a penalty saved during his club’s 1-0 win at Hampden.Aberdeen defender Shay Logan, who was himself a victim of racial slurs that saw Celtic winger Aleksandar Tonev banned for seven games in 2014, also called the Sinclair incident an utter disgrace.“If using the skin colour of somebody is what you have to do to try to offend a fellow human being you are losing in life,” said Logan, according to the Scotsman.Derek McInnes insists there isn’t a Premiership title race yet Henry Ikenna Ugwu – January 12, 2019 Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes believes there is no title race despite his side being one of the favourites to lift the Ladbrokes Premiership trophy…“BLACK WHITE ASIAN we are all the same.”McInnes also shares the views of his players as Aberdeen the fan will be punished duly once identifiedHe said: “Any racial abuse, in this day and age, is shocking. It’s embarrassing for the individual. It’s not a club issue for me. It’s the individual.”“That type of comment was maybe normal practice in the Sixties and Seventies, and it was appalling then and shocking then, and even more so now. It’s shocking that Scott Sinclair and any other player is still subjected to that.”

The Bethel AC Quickstop. (Photo by Dean Swope, KYUK – Bethel)Download AudioWeather conditions have delayed the opening of Bethel’s liquor store.Fog prevented Walter Pickett, AC general manager, from landing in Bethel Monday morning to give AC Quickstop its final compliance check before it opens what would be Bethel’s first liquor store in more than 40 years.Pickett plans to return to Bethel later Monday and hopes to open the store Tuesday at 11 a.m.Meanwhile, Pickett says electricians are finishing wiring the store’s surveillance cameras—three on the exterior and two inside. The cameras are a temporary analog system that the store will replace with high resolution, fish eye, digital cameras later this month.Otherwise, Pickett says the store is ready to go— fully stocked with wine, beer, and spirits, just waiting for the doors to open.
In this file photo taken on 5 December 2016 Medicinal marijuana bud inside the flowering room at Tweed in Smith Falls, Ontario, on 5 December. Photo: AFPAs Canada prepares on Wednesday to become only the second country in the world to legalize the use of marijuana, experts in Uruguay say its pioneering move three years ago helped to reduce drug trafficking in the South American nation.While the public initially rejected the project first introduced by iconic leftist president Jose Mujica, who was in power from 2010-2015, attitudes have gradually changed, with the population now largely supportive of the move.Uruguay legalized the production, distribution and sale of marijuana for recreational purposes in December 2013, before allowing the drug to be sold in pharmacies from July 2017.Things seem to be going well in the country of 3.5 million people, just 10 per cent that of Canada’s population.There are three ways to access cannabis in Uruguay: growing it at home, with a limit of six plants per person; growing it in a club as part of a cooperative; or buying it in the pharmacy.Fear-mongers who predicted the project would lead to a deluge of doped-up lay-abouts have so far been proved wrong, according to Monitor Cannabis.The academic group that studies the government’s marijuana project says that cannabis use has “shown an increase that isn’t extraordinary with respect to the trend” observed prior to legalization.The main difference between the illegal and legal periods is that it has become easier to track the evolution of marijuana usage.Official statistics from the Cannabis Regulation and Control Institute (IRCCA) show that 54 per cent of those who consume cannabis regularly do so through legal means, something that previously wasn’t available to them.Four types of marijuana are available in Uruguay, sold in five gram (0.18 ounces) packets costing $1.40 per gram. Registered users — either citizens or foreign residents — can buy up to 40 grams a month.Logistical difficultiesIt’s not been entirely plain-sailing, though, logistically.There have been many challenges, from problems with harvests to banking system limitations imposed on companies working in the cannabis sector due to United States legislation.But Uruguay has 7,000 registered cultivators, 107 cooperative production clubs, 28,500 registered buyers and 17 distributor pharmacies.The banking restrictions, a fear of attracting crime due to the presence of drugs in stores, and the simple opposition of some pharmacists to the project has resulted in only a small number of pharmacies opting to sell marijuana.But between July 2017 and July 2018, 100 per cent of the 1,200 kilograms (2,645 pounds) of marijuana produced was sold to the public.Buyers would even queue up outside pharmacies once stocks were replenished, alerted by the pharmacists themselves.Production, though, is not satisfying demand, meaning some people continue buying the drug through illegal means, even when they would rather not.”The priority is to increase the system’s reach,” sociologist Sebastian Aguiar says in his publication: “A year of advances and opportunities.”If every registered buyer could purchase the maximum allocation of 40 grams, “50 percent of the total annual demand for cannabis would be taken from the illegal market, equivalent to $22.5 million.”That’s especially relevant since, when presenting his plan, Mujica said the legalization strategy was aimed at combatting illegal drug trafficking.However, not everyone wants to encourage greater use of marijuana.President Tabare Vazquez launched a campaign on 1 October called “Regulating is being responsible,” which aims to provide education about “the risks, effects and potential damages” provoked by the use of cannabis.
Best F(r)iends marks the first time we’ve seen Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero co-star in a movie together since the 2003 classic, The Room. That movie, as you might have heard, blew up into something no one making it could have predicted. It’s a cult classic, watched at midnight screenings all over the country. People know their favorite scenes by heart, and watching it is a magical experience. It’s not just a bad movie, everything about it defies explanation. In the years since its release, watch parties are celebrating the movie just as much as, if not more than, they are mocking it. One thing you have to appreciate about The Room: Tommy Wiseau had a vision, and he put it onscreen in its purest form. That’s impressive no matter what the final product looks like.In both the book and movie of The Disaster Artist, we learned the story of how Wiseau and Sestero met and became friends. How, amazingly, they remained friends through and after this long, stressful and troubled production. Now 15 years later, Sestero and Wiseau made another movie based (loosely) on the story of their friendship. If you go into Best Friends without knowing anything about it, you may be confused by the claim that it’s based on a true story. I asked Sestero what that meant exactly. He said it all started with a road trip.Tommy Wiseau“t was around April 2003. Tommy and I decided to take a road trip up the California coast near Bodega Bay, which is where The Birds was shot,” he said. “I remember we got lost, and I thought it would be better to stay the night up there instead of driving all the way back. So we get to this hotel, sort of like we were coming into a horror film. Like Hitchcock was directing us from the grave.”Sestero wasn’t the only one getting that horror movie vibe. Wiseau felt it to. From Sestero. “We get to this motel and there was this one room left. I thought it would be easier if I went in, got the room and then Tommy met me around the back door,” Sestero explained. “Tommy got a weird vibe from that, and we almost had a thing where Tommy thought I was gonna try to pull something off against him. So that night he was really wary of what was gonna happen. So I ran with that idea of what would happen if I was basically gonna kill Tommy.”Best F(r)iends is a dark comedy about just that. A homeless man named Jon (Sestero) meets a mortician named Harvey (Wiseau) and starts working for him. The two become good friends until Jon discovers a moneymaking opportunity that’s… slightly less than legal. He convinces Harvey to go in on it with him, and the money starts to drive a wedge between them. Though we’ve only seen one movie before this starring Tommy Wiseau, Best F(r)iends might be some of his best work. Or maybe a better way to put it, the film is the best use so far of his unique talents. You can tell Sestero wrote the part just for Wiseau. I asked what it was like reading a role like that, and Wiseau said he treats it the same as any other script.“When somebody hands you a script and maybe it’s for you, it doesn’t mean it’s the same like real life, whatever you do in your life. So any script they give it to me, and the same with Greg’s script, I’m very serious about what I want to do with it. So I say OK, we do this scene, whatever. But it’s not like written, per se, my words. You know? Because I’m ready for Hollywood. The question is, is Hollywood ready for me?” Wiseau said. “I have no limitation.”Still, Wiseau had nothing but praise for Greg’s script and how he wrote the character. “But I think he definitely nailed the… he did a good job, so I was very thrilled to work with Greg as well as his team, and you know finish project, what about that? Ahaha,” he laughed.As far as working on a project and being back on a film set together, both Sestero and Wiseau had nothing but good things to say. The Room had a famously long, expensive and fraught production. Still, 15 years later, Sestero and Wiseau still like working together. “I think that, when Greg called me, you know, I said, ‘Is it real?’” Wiseau laughed. “And then I said to myself yeah, he (Greg) is real. He was not joking… So I say, ‘Yeah, sure let’s do it.” So that’s basically what the answer, without even thinking. And I was very surprised with production, the script, etc. It was good experience and I hope people enjoy it.”For Sestero, it was actually listening to Wiseau’s advice for years that got him to make this movie. “For so many years, Tommy had a motto saying, you know, whatever you feel about other movies, whatever you feel about The Room, my suggestion to really everybody who wants to be creative, grab a camera and make your own movie,” he said. “For so many years, I listened to him say that and didn’t think about it, but when I got this idea, it became really clear to me that I very much wanted to write a part for Tommy that he could really fit.”The way Sestero describes this production sounds completely different from how he described making The Room in The Disaster Artist. “This time around being on set, I really enjoyed the process. We both threw 110 percent in and tried to make something different. Not make a parody or try to kind of tie in The Room at all. I really wanted to go out and make something different.”That’s exactly what they did too. It comes off in the film. You can tell that you’re watching two best friends working together to create something. Sestero said, “This month is 20 years since we came to LA, which is crazy… Ironically, Tommy and I being so different, but at the same time we’ve brought out the best in each other in some ways. We both kind of pushed each other to achieve what we really wanted, or put ourselves in a position where we’re still being creative all these years later.”Tommy WiseauYou can tell Sestero is ultimately proud of everything he and Wiseau have accomplished. “I think there was some sort of destiny there when we met randomly in this acting class, and to still be here 20 years later. It’s just something that’s worked in a very different way. In a very strange way, we were able to make stuff that affected people, hopefully in a positive way. At the end of the day, we’re best friends.”And from the sounds of things, they will continue to work together. There will be more movies starring Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero. “My answer is yes, absolutely,” Wiseau said.In addition to the first volume of Best F(r)iends which is out now, the second volume is coming out in January 2019. Beyond that? “We have a few really cool surprises coming. Tommy is a great character, and it’s very engaging to work together so I hope we can continue to make stuff we’re both proud of,” Sestero said. He wouldn’t say what those surprises were, but I guess that’s what makes them surprises.All Tommy left us with was this: “Hopefully you enjoy it, OK?” Best F(r)iends Volume One is available now on Blu-ray and digital.

The Crab Nebula.

In their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, the group describes their study of data from the Tibet Air Shower Gamma Collaboration and what they found. Journal information: Physical Review Letters More information: M. Amenomori, et al. First detection of photons with energy beyond 100 TeV from an astrophysical source, Physical Review Letters (2019). journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/ … ysRevLett.123.051101 , ArXive: 1906.05521v1 [astro-ph.HE]: arxiv.org/abs/1906.05521 The Tibet Air Shower Gamma Collaboration is an observatory in the Tibetan Plateau and the people that run it. It consists of 600 particle detectors built on a 65,000-square-meter parcel of land. Its objective is to detect subatomic particles emanating from space. The detectors there observe the debris from photons colliding with particles in the Earth’s atmosphere and cosmic rays, which are mostly protons and atomic nuclei. The team members with this new effort were focused on photons that make their way to Earth from far-off places. To measure them, the researchers excluded muon detections, leaving only particles associated with photon collisions. The researchers were able to calculate the energy of a given photon using data from the particles that it struck.The researchers report that they found what they believe to be 24 photon-initiated showers, with photon energies above 100 trillion electron volts—one of which registered 450 TeV. These finds represent the first measurements of high energy photons over 100 TeV and the highest ever recorded.The researchers also used the data from the collaboration to track the paths of the photons, and found they originated in the Crab Nebula, the remains of a supernova that was first observed in 1054 AD. The Crab Nebula is located in the Perseus Arm of the Milky Way, approximately 6,500 light years away.The research team has been studying high-energy photons that make their way to Earth as part of an effort to understand why they have so much energy. Current theory suggests that the photons get their energy from other high-energy particles via inverse Compton scattering, in which photons absorb the energy of high-energy particles when they collide, for example, during supernovae. The photons themselves are believed to have been created by processes involved in the Big Bang. © 2019 Science X Network Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

Self-driving cars will largely be used by researchers and tech developers for the next handful of years, but by 2021, consumers will begin to adopt autonomous car technology, according to the market-research firm’s findings.Related: If You Get In the Way of Google’s Self-Driving Car, It Might Shout at YouTo get consumers over the psychological speed bump of letting go of the wheel, the switch from entirely human-operated cars to self-driving vehicles will be gradual. For example, drivers will get used to the idea of more automated control of their vehicles with interim technologies like adaptive cruise control and automated braking, the report states. Some of the biggest names in tech are putting a hefty lot of resources into the development of autonomous car technology, including Google, Volvo, Daimler, Tesla and Apple.Related: Google Hires Longtime Car Exec to Head Up Its Driverless Car DivisionGoogle is the leader of the pack, according to Juniper. Currently, the tech titan currently has 53 self-driving cars on the streets of Mountain View, Calif., and Austin, Texas, according to the most recent report from Google on it’s self-driving car project. And since the launch of its pilot, Google’s autonomous cars have logged 1.3 million miles without any driver assistance. There are still some functional challenges, the report indicates. For example, weather is a big one. Self-driving car technology struggles in snow, rain and very strong sunlight. Also, the autonomous car technology currently available isn’t able to tell the difference between various obstacles, such as other vehicles or pedestriansSo before we are all ready to hand over the wheel, automakers still need to smooth out some of the bumps in the road.Related: Elon Musk Says Tesla Cars Will Soon Be Able to Steer and Parallel Park Themselves 2 min read December 2, 2015 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.
Source = Melbourne Convention + Visitors Bureau Melbourne Convention + Visitors Bureau (MCVB) last night achieved a trifecta at the prestigious national Meetings and Events Australia (MEA) Awards.MCVB picked up three coveted awards; ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ (for over 30 employees), ‘Metropolitan Destination Marketing Organisation’ and, together with Reed Travel Exhibitions, ‘Exhibition of the Year’, for the 2010 Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME). Given that MCVB has won the latter two awards for three consecutive years, they have been inducted into the esteemed MEA Hall of Fame for both categories. The Bureau’s performance was assessed across a wide-range of criteria, including business and financial plans, marketing activities, sustainability and innovation. MCVB’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Ms Sandra Chipchase, said the three accolades reflected the organisation’s contribution to the Business Events industry. “In the 2009/10 financial year, MCVB achieved a fifth year of consecutive record results. This wouldn’t have been possible without our strong relationships with a range of industry partners, including the State Government of Victoria, the City of Melbourne, the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) and of course Qantas Airways,” Ms Chipchase said.“These awards are an acknowledgement of MCVB’s commitment to innovation. This year we announced a number of world firsts; an Augmented Reality product for international incentive delegates and our groundbreaking Melbourne Marketing Business Events e-Kit.“These are just several examples of how MCVB continues to be a pioneer when it comes to cutting-edge technologies. “Furthermore, the awards recognise MCVB’s ability to secure prestigious events such as the Amway India Leadership Seminar, which will bring more than 4,000 delegates to the city in 2012, as well as our proven track record of running successful exhibitions, such as the Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME), which we established nearly two decades ago.“Business Events provide enormous economic and employment benefits to Victoria’s economy and I’m delighted the achievements of my organisation have been recognised in this way.”Ms Chipchase was also presented with the Outstanding Contribution Award in recognition of her exceptional work in the Meetings and Events industry.
Survey: Housing Sentiment Mirrors Uneven Recovery in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Americans’ sentiment toward housing and the economy took a small backward step in November, according to survey results released Monday.In its monthly National Housing Survey, Fannie Mae found attitudes about the current state of the housing market ranged from flat to pessimistic in November after an October marked by more hopeful responses.”November’s National Housing Survey results support the 2014 trend of gradual, but often sporadic and unspectacular, improvement across a range of indicators measuring consumer attitudes toward housing—mirroring the uneven recovery in housing activity this year,” said Doug Duncan, SVP and chief economist at Fannie Mae.In the year ahead, 44 percent of consumers polled in November’s survey predicted further home price gains, flat from October, while 6 percent anticipated declines, down just slightly from the previous report. The average home price change expectation was 2.6 percent, turning down from 2.8 percent in October.In response to recent trends in interest rates, the share of consumers predicting an increase in rates over the next year dropped to 45 percent, down from 48 percent in October and 59 percent a year ago, when rates were on the rise.While interest rates may be trending in a more consumer-friendly direction, the current state of the credit market still has many Americans doubtful about their chances of getting a loan. Forty-eight percent of respondents in Fannie Mae’s survey said they think it would be easy to get a mortgage today, remaining unchanged from the past few months. The share of those saying it would be difficult to get a mortgage was down from October but still elevated at 47 percent.Overall, 62 percent of respondents said they would buy a home if they were to move today, down from 65 percent in October and 66 percent in September.Opinions about the economy were mixed. While 46 percent of consumers expect their personal financial situation will improve over the next year—an increase from October—the number of respondents saying the economy is on the right track fell to just 36 percent.Despite the apparent stumble in confidence, Fannie Mae said November’s survey results support the company’s forecast for a gradual housing market recovery in 2015.”We expect consumer attitudes toward housing to improve as the pickup in the overall economy lifts employment and income prospects,” Duncan said. “However, a sustained improvement in sentiment that could support a robust housing recovery, as policy support is removed, will require meaningful gains in household income.”While such gains have so far been elusive, the strength in the November jobs report, which points to faster growth in labor income in the current quarter, marks a good start.” Share Confidence Fannie Mae Home Prices Mortgage Rates 2014-12-08 Tory Barringer December 8, 2014 556 Views
Menendez brothers who killed parents reunited in prison SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Menendez brothers, who were convicted of killing their parents in their Beverly Hills mansion nearly three decades ago, have been reunited in a California prison.Corrections department spokeswoman Terry Thornton says 47-year-old Erik Menendez has moved into the same housing unit as his 50-year-old brother Lyle Menendez.The brothers are serving life sentences for fatally shooting their parents, Jose and Kitty Menendez, in 1989.Lyle Menendez was moved in February from Mule Creek State Prison in Northern California to San Diego’s R.J. Donovan Correctional Facility, where his brother was being held in a separate housing unit.Thornton says Eric moved Wednesday into the same facility, where inmates regularly interact in rehabilitation programs.The brothers say the murders followed sexual abuse by their father. Prosecutors said during the high-profile trial that the sons wanted their parents’ multimillion-dollar estate. by Don Thompson, The Associated Press Posted Apr 5, 2018 2:05 pm PDT Last Updated Apr 5, 2018 at 7:20 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email

next home for human race in the coming decades if the research and understanding of the planet is cracked by the bigwigs of the science world This Indian independence week my recommendation is National Geographic’s forty-four-minute documentary Mangalyaan: India’s Mission to Mars available on Netflix Logline: This documentary chronicles the first interplanetary space mission launched by India tracing the probe from planning stage to the Martian orbit The crisp 44-minute documentary grips its audience from the very first frame showing the ISRO (Indian space and research organization) situated in Bengaluru India where ISRO head honchos K Radhakrishnan and A S Kiran Kumar wait for the Mangalyaan to complete its over 300 days journey to the Martian orbit on 24th September 2014 along with the prime minister Shri Narendra Modi After this quick glance to the D day the film rewinds two years to 2012 when the interplanetary mission was announced by then prime minister Dr Manmohan Singh followed by ISRO scientists plunging into the preparation of Mangalyaan The documentary consists of expert interviews graphic representations and ISRO archive footage to flesh out the film Scientists explaining the mission in layman terms makes it an interesting watch Interesting anecdotes and chilling prophecies by late scientist and former president Dr APJ Abdul Kalam through the mouth of an interviewee makes one wonder about the far away land Watching this documentary was like watching a cricket match that we already know has been won by India but still continue watching for the hits and misses during the match After a point one can feel a connection with Mangalyaan and ends up rooting for it to enter the Martian orbit The drama piques viewer’s interest too to know what went behind the development of Mangalyaan and finally its success feels patriotic As an Indian I felt so proud of the ISRO scientists to develop a space craft with shoestring budget of 74 million dollars and to be the first in the world to achieve this project in its maiden attempt Mangalyaan gives hope that nothing is unachievable it gives hopes for a new world in the undiscovered realm With
