first_img Twitter Emily Gao considers herself an engineer as much as a jewellery designer.The 25-year-old Torontonian behind the accessories line JY Gao harnesses everyday kinetic energy to create jewellery with independent moving parts that swing, dangle, and oscillates when activated by the movement of the wearer. “It’s partly engineering because you envision something to look great, but when you actually test it out on the human body, it might not have the same effect,” Gao says of the trial-and-error process. She often prototypes her designs using inexpensive materials such as hinges from hardwares stores before rendering the finished product using sterling silver. (If the term ‘kinetic jewellery’ sounds unfamiliar that’s because “its something I sort of invented,” she says.)Currently, JY Gao is an under-the-radar accessories label founded in 2016 (a pair of the label’s earrings appeared in a shoot in the October 2018 issue of FASHION), but it may not stay that way for long, since Gao received a massive cash infusion after winning second place in China’s largest design competition, which awards cash prizes in excess of $1 million.

Hit by locusts and drought Mauritania needs immediate food aid – UN

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today appealed for immediate food aid for 400,000 people in Mauritania, where locusts and drought have obliterated agricultural production, the cornerstone of families’ survival.“The international community must respond if we are to avoid a humanitarian crisis in Mauritania,” WFP’s country representative Sory Ouane said of the appeal for $30.8 million for a 2005-07 operation covering urgent needs. “This kind of food shortage, in an already burdened country like Mauritania, can only spell further deterioration of rural households’ livelihoods unless we act now.”In the worst invasion in 15 years in the Sahel region bordering the Sahara, locusts infested Mauritania’s entire agricultural production zone. The south, the hardest hit area, is home to about a quarter of the population of nearly 3 million and families living there have virtually no access to non-agricultural income.A WFP vulnerability study shows that 60 per cent of households in the agro-pastoral zone will not have enough to eat in the coming year, and the lean season during 2005 is expected to be harsher than usual.Locusts wiped out not only cereals in Mauritania but also pulses and other vegetables. Crop assessments indicate a food deficit of 187,000 tons. Insufficient rainfall also hampered production. In addition, the locusts and drought have damaged the rangelands vital to cattle which are essential to people’s livelihoods.“Entire harvests, where the people have invested their money, time and toil for so long, are simply gone. We must act now,” Mr. Ouane said. “The right assistance now for the people of Mauritania will go a long way – not only to save lives today but also to help people avoid falling into a cycle of food crises that could last for years to come.”Despite the magnitude of the 2004 locust invasions throughout the Sahel, they did not provoke a region-wide food crisis. But in addition to Mauritania, Niger and Mali have suffered severe damage, with drought compounding the problem. The impact is localized however, and WFP will implement tailored food aid responses to those communities facing acute shortages. read more

A city hall fight for standardization measures as Uber tries for Calgary

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email A city hall fight for standardization measures as Uber tries for Calgary by News Staff Posted Feb 9, 2015 7:11 am MDT There is a fight against a taxi outfit now recruiting drivers in Calgary that has already begun illegally operating in Edmonton. Councillor Diane Colley-Urquhart tells City she is asking council Monday to lobby for a provincial ride-hailing strategy that would help standardize the practice of app-based systems like Uber, in both major cities.“At the end of the day what this is about is getting a taxi ride off the internet where you don’t know who you’re contacting, you don’t know who the driver is, you don’t know what kind of insurance they have on their vehicle,” Colley-Urquhart said.While Calgary taxi companies may hope Uber doesn’t get a stronghold here, Edmonton plans to file a legal injunction to stop the company from using its freelance drivers. Alberta Transportation has yet to launch any official active review into the regulatory implications. read more

Mens Lacrosse No 6 Ohio State nearly completes comeback but loses 87

Then-sophomore attackman Jack Jasinski heads for the goal in the fourth quarter during the first round of the NCAA tournament against Loyola Maryland on May 14, 2017. Credit: Sheridan Hendrix | Oller ReporterThe No. 6 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team played another close game this week, but this time it turned into the Buckeyes’ first heartbreaking defeat of the season.They made a valiant fourth-quarter defensive effort, but failed to gain the momentum on the road in an 8-7 overtime loss to No. 19 Marquette Friday. The Buckeyes (4-1) could not down their second ranked opponent of the season. The Golden Eagles (3-0) proved to be too much for Ohio State’s defense, which held Marquette scoreless for nearly 20 minutes in the fourth quarter and into overtime.Ohio State found itself trailing 7-5 in the fourth, but came back from the deficit behind goals from junior attack Jack Jasinski and redshirt sophomore Lukas Buckley to push the game into overtime. The Golden Eagles won the first face-off of the extra period and followed up with a rocket shot from sophomore midfielder Peter Henkhaus, but it was saved by Ohio State senior goalie Matthew Smidt.The Buckeyes’ response was swift. After the ball cleared the Ohio State defensive zone, freshman midfielder Jackson Reid managed to rattle a shot off on Golden Eagle senior goalie Cole Blazer. Blazer, however, countered with a save of his own and allowed junior Eagles attackman John Wagner to score the game winner.Ohio State’s overtime loss snapped its four-game win streak. It will try to bounce back when it challenges Detroit Mercy at 2 p.m. Sunday. read more

Ms Davidson is praised as a “beacon, thanks to her relatable personality and progressive ideas” among a “sea of old-guard Tories” by the magazine.The publication also cites the openly gay politician’s “spectacular gains for her party in the last Scottish elections” as a reason for her position on its list.

It seemed to mostly work as a grip, though it isn’t a comfy handle, but it does help stabilize the device when it’s opened up in tablet form, making it easier to hold without cropping the sides. 2,299 euros, converts to $2,600, £2,000 or AU$3,660 29 Power button Power button Processor Samsung Galaxy Fold Now playing: Watch this: News • Huawei P30 Pro in a gorgeous orange finish leaks Mentioned Above Huawei P30 (128GB, black) • Time for a state of the union on foldable phones.

Qatar council backs permanent residency law for foreigners

first_imgQatar relies massively on foreign labour. AFPQatar has moved closer to granting permanent residency to foreigners after its senior legislative body approved a draft law, first announced in the wake of the ongoing Gulf crisis.State media reported the Shura Council agreed on Monday to back a law which would grant residency to expatriates who provide valuable services as well as to the children of Qatari women married to non-Qataris.”The Advisory (Shura) Council approved a draft law on permanent residency,” the Qatar News Agency reported.Permanent residents would be allowed to have free state education, healthcare and be given the right to own property.It is thought to be the first such law proposed by one of the energy-rich Gulf states.It was first announced last August just two months after Qatar was boycotted by neighbouring former allies in a bitter diplomatic dispute.Like other nations in the region, Qatar relies massively on foreign labour.Its current population of 2.71 million, a record, is made up of almost 90 per cent non-nationals, many helping the country prepare to host the 2022 World Cup.There are some 315,000 Qatari nationals.The residency proposal will now be considered by Qatar’s cabinet and Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani before it becomes law.last_img read more

BJP leaking false numbers on Pakistan air strike TMC

first_imgNew Delhi: The Trinamool Congress Saturday accused BJP ministers of “leaking exaggerated numbers” to the media about the casualties in the air strike in Pakistan. The Mamata Banerjee-led TMC also claimed that no statistics given by the central government can be taken “seriously”.Security forces have not officially attributed any number to those eliminated in the strike, Trinamool Congress national spokesperson Derek O’Brien posted on Twitter. “IAF has been very consistent: “No number”.So why did a BJP mantri or two leak exaggerated numbers? And Delhi media fell for the numbers. Can one take any statistics this govt gives out seriously? Journos? Or slaves to propaganda aka sources?,” he tweeted along with screenshots of TV news reports quoting sources as saying 200-300 Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists were eliminated in the strike. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseLater in a statement, O’Brien accused BJP president Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of playing “divisive politics” over the issue. “Look who has the gall to talk about ‘vote bank politics’! Amit Shah and the BJP are the nastiest proponents of divisive and hatred politics. “We will not listen to his lectures on patriotism. Our armed forces belong to India, not to Modi-Shah-BJP,” he said. The comments from the TMC leader came a day after party chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Banerjee demanded proof from the government of the impact of the strike on a JeM camp across the border.

While Pakistan had cancelled its services right after an air strike by the Indian Air Force, India cancelled the operations of the Samjhauta Express on February 28. The Railway Board in an order had said all operations of the Attari Special Express, Delhi-Attari-Delhi, which together with the Pakistani line from Wagah-Lahore is known as the Samjhauta or Friendship Express, will remain cancelled. It had also said that the cancellation was due to “purely operational reasons”. Sources said after the missive about Pakistan’s resumption of services was conveyed to the board, it was decided that services on the Indian end will resume too. The train will start running from the Indian side on Sunday, while on the Pakistan side it will leave Lahore on Monday for its return journey, the official said.last_img read more

Officials investigate after group of youths at Cozumel photographed holding starfish

first_imgCozumel, Q.R. — Government officials are analyzing another situation at Cozumel after a photo circulating of youths holding a starfish has been discovered.Numerous bad practices by tour companies are under investigation by the National Commission of Protected Natural Areas (Conanp). This latest incident happened at the beach of El Cielo, a popular snorkeling and tour area where a group of five young men are photographed with a starfish in their boat.The starfish was plucked from the sea bottom during a snorkeling tour. El Cielo is part of the Cozumel Marine Park which means it is a protected area. The image caused a stir among the island’s environmentalists who demanded that CONANP take action on the matter.Noemí Guadalupe Martín Cab, president of Conservation, Research and Environmental Management of Cozumel (Cimac), said there is a lack of awareness of tour operators “who know perfectly well that one of the rules is to not touch the marine life.”While Guadalupe Álvarez Chulim de Azueta, president of the organization Cielo, Tierra y Mar, described the actions of the young group of men as “outrageous”, Christopher Arturo González Baca of Conanp said that he has seen the photo, but since there is not much information at the moment, it will be difficult to find those responsible since it is believed they were tourists.Continued violations in the protected marine areas of Cozumel could lead to a restricted number of tour boats or even closure of some areas.In June, a Playa del Carmen diver was photographed holding a toadfish in the protected marine area of Cozumel and was eventually fired for his misconduct.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The Cardinals jumped to a 14-0 lead as he started the game 4-for-5 with 92 yards and a pair of touchdowns.But he couldn’t produce any further, getting benched after three second-half turnovers.“You do go through a game of emotions,” Fitzgerald said. “To jump out like that to 14-point lead, and do it on a road game like we had today, you know, it’s good. And then the momentum completely shifted.”Sandwiched between the 14-point lead and the momentum shift was Fitzgerald’s underlying comment: “… a road game like we had today.”Chicago fans consistently turn out in droves to Arizona sporting events, whether its spring training in Mesa or NFL games in Glendale.After Bears defensive back Eddie Jackson caught what appeared to be a pick-six before it was called back for an offside penalty, he found a large enough group of Bears fans at the wall behind the end zone to perform a Lambeau Leap — on an away team’s turf. 32 Comments   Share   The excitement for Josh Rosen from Cardinals fans seemed palpable, but Fitzgerald barely took notice.“Which fans are you talking about?” he said when asked about the crowd’s energy created by Rosen. “I couldn’t hear the cheers on top the boos.”He chuckled, apparently joking, but less than a week after the Arizona Diamondbacks lost a series to the Cubs at home, the Cardinals had to deal with the noise from the same Chicago transplants.Asked if it bothered him, Fitzgerald paused before answering: “I’m not going to mess with that one.”He had plenty of time to listen to them. The new Cardinals coaching staff is still struggling to give its stars the ball — running back David Johnson had just 12 carries, and Fitzgerald was only targeted twice all game.Fitzgerald was asked if the Bears defense did anything special against him.“No,” he said. “That’s just the way the cookie crumbles at times.”Nothing special. He just wasn’t a frequent target. The way Fitzgerald and Johnson will be utilized as the year goes on is one of the major questions the Cardinals face.But there is one thing that might be more pressing heading into Week 4: Who will the starting quarterback be? Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has seen plenty quarterbacks come and go through the Arizona locker room.What’s one more switch to him?“Surprised? Nah, nothing surprises me in this business anymore,” he said.Starting quarterback Sam Bradford was replaced in the fourth quarter by rookie Josh Rosen, who was picked No. 10 overall in the NFL draft. The rookie was unable to initiate a comeback and the Cardinals lost 16-14 to the Chicago Bears.

President reiterates is creating conditions for economic growth

first_imgPresident Nicos Anastasiades has reiterated the government’s commitment to maintain and broaden conditions that would lead to fiscal surpluses and high economic growth.Addressing the 15th CFA Forecasting event, organised by the CFA Society Cyprus, on Thursday night Anastasiades recalled that from a downturn of 6% in 2013 Cyprus returned to consecutive high growth of 4%, from deficits of €1 billion in 2012 and 2013 generated surpluses for five consecutive years, unemployment has fallen from its peak of 16% in 2013 to 7.5% with a declining trend, while the Cypriot credit rating returned to investment grade status.These achievements, he said, were the result of the prudent fiscal policy we followed, the strengthening of our stable and competitive tax and legal regime, the implementation of measures which facilitated economic and investment opportunities and the adoption of significant structural reforms.It was also the combination, he added, of the above with the patience and hard work that the people of Cyprus demonstrated, as well as the co-operative stance of the majority of political partners, social partners, and in particular the professional business organisations and the private sector.The President reiterated the government’s commitment to continuing to improve the country’s business environment through adopting measures and implementing new incentives which facilitate economic and investment opportunities and implementing further significant structural reforms in pensions, the welfare and labour market system, the health care system, tourism and research and innovation.He added that “at the same time, we will of course continue to actively support the thriving financial services sector, one of the most important and productive pillars of our economy, which has proven truly resilient at challenging times, being a key pillar for the economic recovery, the growth and the job creation we are witnessing.”Anastasiades also said that in addition to numerous tax and legal incentives offered, the government has actively supported the development of the industry by strengthening the national regulator, the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission, while enhancing the regulatory framework according to the European legislation and on best international practices.“These initiatives, as well as the hard work of professionals in the industry, have resulted in the strong growth of the sector, especially as regards fund management,” he said.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityReassurance for your refugeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Nicosia will use ‘all diplomatic means at its disposal’ to counter Turkish actionsUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoA grotesque choice of prime minister for Britain?Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
