Ilie Nastase banned from Fed Cup and Davis Cup until 2019

first_imgIlie Nastase has been banned from the Fed Cup and Davis Cup until 2019 because of his foul-mouthed comments and bad behavior as Romania’s captain during a Fed Cup match against Britain.In addition to the ban, the International Tennis Federation said Friday the 1973 French Open champion will not be able to work in an official capacity for a further two years, until 2021.The 71-year-old Nastase was also fined $10,000. He has three weeks to appeal the decision.”Mr. Nastase made a comment about Serena Williams’s unborn child that was highly inappropriate and racially insensitive,” the ITF said.Nastase also “made advances of a sexual nature towards Anne Keothavong, the captain of the Great Britain team” and “made abusive and threatening comments to the match officials and to members of the Great Britain team.”Although he will have to sit out ITF events, the ban does not apply to Grand Slam, ATP or WTA tournaments, which are not under the governing body’s jurisdiction.Nastase was provisionally suspended in April after he speculated about the skin color of the baby that Williams is expecting and for outbursts during a Fed Cup match between Romania and Britain.He previously acknowledged making mistakes and having shortcomings, but stressed “the cause I fight for is tennis, the sport I really love, which I cannot separate from my life.”As Fed Cup captain, Nastase hurled abuse at British player Johanna Konta, Keothavong and the umpire. The referee ejected Nastase.Nastase, a former top-ranked player, was barred from the French Open and was not invited to the Royal Box at Wimbledon, where he was a two-time finalist.advertisementlast_img read more

Grants Support Seniors in Sydney

first_imgFunding was announced today, July 22, for two organizations in Sydney that create opportunities for seniors to be more engaged and included in their communities. MLA Derek Mombourquette, on behalf of Leo Glavine, Minister of Seniors, announced grants from the Age-Friendly Grant program to the Breton Ability Centre and the Health Association of African Canadians, Cape Breton. “There are many factors that can cause day-to-day challenges for older adults, which is why it is crucial that we have adequate support, services and programs available in our communities,” said Mr. Mombourquette. “These two deserving organizations are making a difference in the lives of seniors in the Sydney area.” The Breton Ability Centre received an $8,000 grant. It will be used to offer unique horticultural therapy sessions and exercise therapy sessions to their residents, as well as to expand their community garden and greenhouse project. “As our population in Nova Scotia continues to age it is important to offer as many opportunities for older adults as possible,” said Millie Colbourne, CEO of Breton Ability Centre. “Older adults are looking for recreation and leisure activities that add enjoyment to their day. Our residents are excited about the new programs we can now offer.” The second grant of $3,250 was given to the Health Association of African Canadians, Cape Breton. This grant will be used to launch a two-day senior health symposium to provide health information to seniors and to encourage an open dialogue about the health of African Canadians. Support from government helps these inclusive programs improve accessibility for seniors and enables them to participate more fully in their communities.last_img read more

Energy Minister Morocco to Become China–Africa Partnership Hub

Rabat – Morocco is becoming a hub for a partnership between Morocco, China, and other African countries, said Minister of Energy, Mines, and Sustainable Development Aziz Rabbah on Wednesday in Rabat.Rabbah spoke to Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) at the 20th Mines-Rabat Enterprises Forum, the theme of which is “Morocco: A promoter of Chinese-African partnership.”Morocco can act as a link between China and the rest of Africa thanks to major reforms and partnerships under Morocco’s Africa policy, he stressed.Because of Morocco’s successful model, which has yielded some positive results on both the African and international levels, Morocco could stand as a strategic hub for trade and investment between Africa and China, Rabbah asserted.The forum, as indicated by the director of the Rabat Mines School (ENSMR), Mustapha Ouadghiri, is an annual meeting that allows students, teachers, and private and public bodies to debate key issues concerning the integration of the school’s engineers into Morocco’s economic and social development process.According to the president of the forum, Oussama Amaani, the aim of the forum is to reduce the gap between students and the professional world to facilitate their contact with participating companies.Read also: Moroccan Exporters: Free Trade with US Did Not Profit MoroccoMorocco and China’s collaboration in the mining sector in Africa has increased in recent years.In early 2017, the Moroccan mining company Managem, after 10 years of successful exploration efforts in Congo, sold a 61 percent stake of Lamikal, of which it owned 81 percent, to Beijing-based Wanbao. Later that year, representatives of Beijing and Rabat established a joint Morocco-China business council to oversee and implement the Morocco-China trade agreement. read more

Higher prices fewer options lurk after health bill collapse

by Tom Murphy, The Associated Press Posted Jul 28, 2017 1:18 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 28, 2017 at 4:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email The health care law of the land has survived for now, but it needs help — and it needs it soon.Soaring prices and fewer choices may greet customers when they return to the Affordable Care Act’s insurance marketplaces this fall, in part because insurers are facing deep uncertainty about whether the Trump administration will continue to make key subsidy payments and enforce other parts of the existing law that help control prices.Assurances don’t look to be coming anytime soon. “As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!” President Donald Trump tweeted early Friday, soon after the Senate narrowly rejected the latest push to dismantle the Obama-era health care law.Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price said in a statement after the Senate vote that the Trump administration would pursue its health care goals through regulation.That kind of uncertainty rattles insurers, many of whom have already stopped selling policies through public insurance markets established by the health law because they were losing money.Their main concern now is that the Trump administration will stop paying crucial subsides called for in the law that help reduce costs like deductibles for people with low incomes. The subsidies, estimated at $7 billion a year, have been challenged by Republicans in court, and Trump has only guaranteed them through this month.If they stop, insurers will have to raise prices for coverage, known as premiums, because by law they must still offer the same reduced deductibles for their low-income customers.Leerink analyst Ana Gupte surveyed several states and has said that insurers are asking for price hikes of around 36 per cent when they assume the subsidies go away, compared with about 18 per cent if they stay.People with low incomes might be shielded from these hikes in part because the law provides tax credits that cover much of the premium.But those who make too much to qualify for that help — and tend to vote Republican — could get hit hard, noted health care consultant Robert Laszewski, a former insurance executive.“(Trump’s) hurting his own people,” Laszewski said.Of course, all shoppers will be hurt if insurers leave markets, noted Urban Institute health economist Linda Blumberg.“Then there’s nowhere to use your subsidy,” she said.The Blue Cross-Blue Shield insurer Anthem has already withdrawn from markets in Ohio, Wisconsin and Indiana. CEO Joseph Swedish said Wednesday the company may cut back further if it doesn’t get certainty on the subsidies “quickly.”Insurers have until the middle of next month to finalize their 2018 prices, industry officials say. They must leave enough time for the rates to be submitted to the marketplaces, and then for the on-line exchanges that sell the coverage to be tested before enrolment for next year’s plans begins on Nov. 1.If insurers want to back out of a market, they have until about late September to do so.Options already have grown thin. About a third of the U.S.’s approximately 3,000 counties have only one insurer selling coverage on their exchange, which is the only place where shoppers can get tax credits based on their income to help buy coverage. Those credits are separate from the subsidies for low-income customers.Nearly 40 counties currently have no choices for next year on their exchanges.Dan Mendelson, president of the consulting firm Avalere, says there is some hope that the Trump administration could yet shore up the system. He thinks the administration could recognize that it will be held accountable by voters for the condition of the law’s marketplaces. Further deterioration “would be very negative for them,” he said.“I think in the end they’re going to have to stabilize these markets,” he said.

Universities which noplatform controversial speakers will face Government intervention

Universities which “no-platform” controversial speakers will face a Government intervention for the first time in 30 years, the higher education minister will say today.Sam Gyimah warned that universities must stamp out their “institutional hostility” to unfashionable views as he prepares to issue new guidance on free speech. It will be the first Government intervention since the free speech duty imposed on  in universities, polytechnics and colleges which was introduced as part of the Education Act in 1986.Mr Gyimah’s intervention comes after a series of attempts to censor gay rights activists, feminists and Conservative politicians due to concerns from students that their views may cause offence.”A society in which people feel they have a legitimate right to stop someone expressing their views on campus simply because they are unfashionable or unpopular is rather chilling,” Mr Gyimah said.“There is a risk that overzealous interpretation of a dizzying variety of rules is acting as a brake on legal free speech on campus.”Mr Gyimah will tell a free speech summit on Thursday that there are numerous pieces of disjointed guidance which gives rise to complexity, and risks being exploited by those wishing to stifle free speech. Protesters rally outside the National Union of Students HQ to urge revision of its safe space & no-platform policies Protesters rally outside the National Union of Students HQ to urge revision of its safe space & no-platform policiesCredit:Nick Edwards Universities must currently comply with the Equalities Act, Prevent duty and the new universities’ regulator, the Office for Students (OFS). Students’ Unions are often registered charities, and so must comply with charities law. Mr Gyimah will say that “bureaucrats or wreckers”at universities must be prevented from “exploiting gaps for their own ends”.He promised to create a new set of guidance that will provide clarity of the rules for both students and universities.”No-platforming” is where a group or individuals seen to have offensive views are banned from a public debate or meeting.Students at Cardiff University tried to “no-platform” the feminist writer Germaine Greer on account of her comments about transgender people, and Peter Tatchell, the veteran gay rights campaigner, has also been a victim of “no-platforming”.Meanwhile, “safe space” policies aim to ensure all students feel able to express themselves and are protected from views and language they find offensive, as well as discrimination.Last year, Sussex University’s free speech society was told by the students’ union that its inaugural guest must submit his speech in advance for vetting, in case it violates their safe space policy.It also emerged that King’s College London hired “safe space marshals” to police controversial speaker events on campus and take “immediate action” if anyone expresses opinions that breach the safe space policy.

Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. The OFS, which came into force last month, has the power to fine or even de-register universities that fail to protect free speech. Earlier this year, Bristol University’s students’ union backed proposals to ban any “terf ” speakers who question the transgender status of women.Terf, which stands for Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists, is generally used as a derogatory term to describe those who believe that “identifying” as a woman is not the same as being born a woman. It can also refer to people who are deemed to hold “transphobic” views.In the past, students have tried to “no-platform” individual speakers for holding such views, but the Bristol moves appear to be one of the first efforts to instigate a blanket ban.Sir Michael Barber, chair of the OFS, said: “Our universities are places where free speech should always be promoted and fostered.“That includes the ability for everyone to share views which may be challenging or unpopular, even if that makes some people feel uncomfortable.“This is what Timothy Garton-Ash calls ‘robust civility’. The Office for Students will always encourage freedom of speech within the law. We will never intervene to restrict it.” read more

Untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4 iOS 51 achieved

first_imgThe wait continues for the iPhone 4S and new iPad to be jailbroken, but for anyone using an iPhone 4 or iPad 2 there’s good news. An untethered jailbreak for those devices running iOS 5.1 has finally been achieved by one determined iPhone hacker.The announcement was made by the iOS security researcher known as pod2g through his Twitter account. The tweet simply said:Until now iOS 5.1 users have had to rely on a tethered jailbreak solution, which meant having to re-jailbreak every time your device required a reboot. With the more desirable untethered solution, the jailbreak is maintained between restarts of your phone or tablet.pod2g has given no hint as to when this untethered jailbreak will be released to the public, but at least now we know it is possible and only a matter of time before it appears. After which, the focus will move back on to jailbreaking the A5X-based devices and subsequently allowing the iPhone 4S and new iPad to be unlocked for running non-approved apps from the Cydia store. Hopefully that will also appear as an untethered solution.The A5X devices were jailbroken back in March by MuscleNerd and the Dev Team, but it was just a first step on a single device. All parties involved admitted at the time that there was still a lot of work to do and so the wait continues without an ETA. Soon it will be a question of whether they can produce a solution before the iPhone 5 lands later this year.via Cult of Maclast_img read more

Syrian engineer builds own tank uses game controller to fire machine gun

first_imgThe vehicle you see in the video above used to be a car, but Syrian rebel engineer Mahmud Abud spent a month and $10,000 re-purposing it as a tank called the Sham II.How safe the occupants will be under fire has yet to be tested. Protection comes from the large steel sheets that make up the exterior, while inside you’ll find a mix of technology that allows the Sham II to be both driven and used as a weapon without ever having to pop your head outside.As there are no windows, Abud has installed LCD TVs linked up to five cameras mounted on the exterior of the Sham II. Three of those camera face forwards while the fourth gives a view of from the rear. This allows the driver to view his surroundings and drive the tank without being exposed. The fifth camera serves a second purpose: allowing the mounted 7.62mm machine gun to be aimed and fired.Abud has also hooked up a game controller and a second screen inside the tank, which allows the gunner to rotate and fire the machine gun mounted on the exterior. A camera points down the barrel and the controller can be used to zoom in and out, rotate, and fire the gun. It’s just like a video game, only with real bullets.The ability to see multiple cameras at once on the display should make it easy for the driver to see any danger while traveling along. A second person can also fire the machine gun independently with the controller without disrupting the driver.The tank is called the Sham II as it’s the second one Abud has built. The original Sham only protected the driver, where as the Sham II also has room for other people inside its shell. As for how protective it is, Abud says the 2.5mm steel sheeting protects against 23mm cannon fire. Combined with its maneuverability, it could certainly come in handy on the battlefield under light fire. Against a real tank it wouldn’t stand a chance.via France24last_img read more

LAgence spatiale européenne prolonge onze missions

first_imgL’Agence spatiale européenne prolonge onze missionsL’Agence spatiale européenne (ESA) a décidé de prolonger la durée de vie de onze de ses missions. Normalement, le financement de ces dernières arrivait à terme, comme tous les deux ans, mais l’Agence a souhaité poursuivre le programme jusqu’en 2012.Le chef des opérations scientifiques de l’Agence spatiale européenne, Martin Kessler explique pourquoi ces onze missions vont être prolongées : “Leur longévité est un témoignage de l’attention avec laquelle les équipes industrielles ont construit ces satellites, de la façon dont les équipes de projet les font fonctionner et de l’ingéniosité des scientifiques qui continuent  d’imaginer de nouvelles investigations scientifiques”.À lire aussiLe télescope Hubble observe une exoplanète noire comme l’asphalteLes données récoltées et l’intérêt des missions spatiales sont réévalués tous les deux ans. C’est ainsi que l’ESA décide ou non de prolonger les missions les plus intéressantes en les refinançant pour deux années supplémentaires. Au cours de la réunion parisienne, les programmes étudiés ont été Cluster, Integral, Planck, Proba-2, Mars Express, Venus Express et XMM-Newton tous propres à l’ESA. Le point a également été fait sur l’explorateur Cassini-Huygens, le télescope spatial Hubble et le satellite SOHO, Hinode en partenariat avec la Nasa.L’Agence spatiale européenne a ainsi confirmé la prolongation de ces missions jusqu’en 2012, voire même jusqu’en 2014 si d’ici deux ans les programmes montrent encore le même intérêt. Les satellites Hinode et Proba-2 pourraient alors observer “la montée en puissance” du Soleil, son prochain pic d’activité magnétique étant prévu pour 2013.

ASA Urges Action on Pending Biotech Approvals in Letters to USTR EU

first_imgIn letters sent this week to the European Commission and the U.S. Trade Representative, the American Soybean Association (ASA) urged that the European Union (EU) take action in September on nine biotech events that have received positive safety reviews and are awaiting final import authorization. ASA was joined on the letters by 18 other farm, commodity, grain processing, grain trade, and biotechnology associations throughout the U.S. agricultural value chain. There are currently nine products, including four soybean products, which have already received positive European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) opinions and completed the subsequent review process, but are still awaiting final authorization for import for food and feed use from the EU’s College of Commissioners.In a letter to United States Trade Representative (USTR) Michael Froman, the groups encouraged the Administration to contact EU Commission President Barroso to ensure action on the pending events in September and to ask the EU to respect its obligations under the World Trade Organization (WTO) to make timely regulatory decisions on new biotechnology applications.In a letter to the EU Commission, the groups stated that “the time required for EU decisions on new biotech crops has only lengthened in recent years and no authorizations have been issued since November 2013. Some of the products have been before the European Commission since the end of 2013 and were submitted to EFSA more than five years ago.“Several of these products are already being commercialized under stewardship programs in the U.S. and elsewhere, and failure to approve them at the meeting of the College of Commissioners in September will increase the risk of trade disruptions during the coming months.”The letters emphasized that the delays could cause feed shortages and price increases, which would affect European producers, traders, livestock industry and consumers.Click here to read both letters.last_img read more

Microsofts New Edge Browser Extensions Could Make You Ditch Chrome

first_imgIf you haven’t heard yet, Microsoft is overhauling its Edge browser and rebuilding it on Chromium, the open-source rendering engine Google uses for Chrome. The company hasn’t provided a timeline for when its Chromium-based Edge browser will debut, but newly-discovered extensions suggest the change is not far away.An Edge Insider Add-on store housing 84 extensions was discovered by Twitter user WalkingCat. Included in this first group of extensions are AdBlock, Avast Online Security, Grammarly, Honey, LastPass and Pinterest Save Button. The store groups these tools into categories, which currently include Adblockers, Education, Social and entertainment, Shopping and Productivity.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

Windows Insiders will get first access to these tools, which will presumably be available on Edge when Microsoft launches its  Chromium-based browser sometime this year.Microsoft released Edge four years ago as a replacement to the aging Internet Explorer. The browser offered blazing fast performance and proved a compelling alternative to Chrome and Firefox. However, Edge never caught on mobile or desktop users as Chrome’s market share continued to skyrocket.One of the reasons Edge fell behind is because it lacks extensions. In its first year, Edge garnered only 70 add-ons from third-party developers compared to 180,000 available on the Chrome Web Store, ZDNet reports. Microsoft is hoping the switch to Chromium will encourage developers to code for Edge and tempt users away from Chrome, the most popular web browser across all platforms.Microsoft says a preview build for the upcoming Chromium-based Edge will be available in early 2019 on Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. The company also intends on bringing the browser to macOS. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeKelley Blue Book5 Mid-engine Corvettes That Weren’tKelley Blue BookUndoGrepolis – Free Online GameGamers Around the World Have Been Waiting for this GameGrepolis – Free Online GameUndoTODAYPolice Identify Girl Licking Ice Cream Tub In Viral VideoTODAYUndoForbes.com100 Powerful Women Americans Can Look Up toForbes.comUndoMy Food and FamilyHealthy, Homemade Drunken Thai Noodles In Just 20 MinutesMy Food and FamilyUndoMayo ClinicManaging psoriatic arthritis painMayo ClinicUndoAdvertisementlast_img read more
