Part of the reason for the slide is profit taking after the stock ran up 50% during January alone, and up 200% from its 52-week low of $6.10 in September. But availability has become an issue as U.S. customers won’t be able to get the BlackBerry Z10 until March, a month later than in Canada.In earnings news, Barbie maker Mattel Inc.’s fourth-quarter net income fell 17% to $306.5 million, weighed down by a litigation charge.

Constitutional hearings draw 30000 East Timorese UN mission says

The results of more than 200 constitutional public hearings held in East Timor’s 65 sub-districts will be submitted to the future Constituent Assembly for consideration during the writing of the constitution.”By any standard this is an amazing public participation that shows just how committed the East Timorese are to being involved in their own future,” Peter Galbraith, Cabinet Member for Political Affairs and Timor Sea, said today.Officials from the UN Transitional Administration in East Timor (UNTAET) involved in organizing the public hearings said that in many cases the turnout exceeded expectations and demonstrated that people were anxious to be heard by the future 88-seat Constituent Assembly, which will be elected on 30 August.The country’s future political system, currency and flag were among the issues discussed at the hearings. Other topics included the type of punishment that should be applied to those responsible for serious crimes; the educational system; laws for foreign investors; how the revenue from the Timor Sea should be distributed; and the official language.Women’s groups were well represented at the hearings, with many calling for constitutional safeguards against domestic violence and a robust family law.Meanwhile, UNTAET’s Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) today conducted three lotteries to determine the make-up of the national ballot for the 30 August elections.The first lottery determined that the names of political party candidates will appear before the names of independent candidates; the second lottery determined each party’s position on the ballot, and the third determined the position of each of the independent candidates.The IEC has confirmed that there are 97 political party and 11 independent candidates for 13 district seats. Five independent candidates will run for national seats. The IEC will announce tomorrow the final list of political party national candidates. read more

Concerned at rising Middle East violence Annan urges parties to pursue peace

Since last Saturday at least 27 Palestinians and four Israelis have been killed, with many more injured, even as representatives of the international community are meeting in London to discuss ways to resume peaceful negotiations, a spokesman for Mr. Annan noted in a statement issued late Wednesday in New York.”The Secretary-General remains convinced that there is no military solution to this conflict,” the spokesman said, stressing that violence – far from producing security or lasting peace – would only feed the “terrible cycle” which began in September 2000.In the statement, the Secretary-General urged the parties to immediately cease all forms of violence, abide by international humanitarian law and allow the international community to help them find a peaceful way out of the conflict. read more

Mens lacrosse Ohio States path to victory over Michigan starts with stout

Redshirt senior goalie Tom Carey attempts a save against Johns Hopkins on April 9 at Ohio Stadium. Ohio State defeated Johns Hopkins 13-8. Credit: Courtesy of OSUThe No. 9 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team has faced several elite scorers this season — a trend will continue Saturday morning in Ann Arbor, Michigan.The Buckeyes will look to continue their hot streak on defense when they take on the Michigan Wolverines. While the Wolverines have struggled recently, they still possess an offensive unit capable of giving the Buckeye defense some concerns. The focal point of the concerns will be the prolific scorer, sophomore attacker Brent Noseworthy.Noseworthy has been terrorizing opposing defenses this season with a team-high 33 goals through 11 games. He is averaging three goals per game, ranking him sixth in the NCAA. Similar to the effect OSU freshman attacker Tre LeClaire has on the Buckeyes, Noseworthy brings that go-to goal scorer presence around the cage in the offensive zone.OSU has handled matchups with elite scorers successfully and contained them. Their strategy against No. 7 Penn State’s freshman attacker Mac O’Keefe limited him to just one goal. On the season, O’Keefe had been averaging 3.45 goals per game, good for second in the NCAA. While he tallied nine shots in the game, they limited his chances at getting high-quality shots.This success helps create a mantra players like junior defenseman Erik Evans love to embrace when facing challenges like this.“It’s why you come to a school like Ohio State, it’s to play the best competition possible,” he said. “When you see a guy who’s been having a great year it’s great for him, but it also gets you pumped up to shut him down.”The Buckeye’ defense has derived confidence in itself from its play on the field as it has allowed just 7.5 goals per game, the fourth lowest in the NCAA. The players credit the defensive approach to trusting their teammates and executing their roles.“We’re a good group and we have talent all around which helps take a lot of the pressure off of an individual,” Evans said. “I trust Matt Borges and Ben Randall to win their matchups. It allows me to focus more on my guy knowing I have guys behind me that I can trust to take care of their business.”While there will be considerable focus on Noseworthy, the Buckeyes will have to be cautious not to forget that he has a strong supporting cast. Senior attacker Ian King provides another weapon that OSU will not be able to overlook. With 21 goals and 19 assists on the season, King might have opportunities at the net if the Buckeyes put too much focus on Noseworthy.On the other hand, the Buckeyes are conscious to the fact that the entire Wolverine offense can strike at any time.“We just have to stay within ourselves,” said OSU sophomore defenseman Matt Borges. “It’s about playing our game and playing good off-ball defense. It’s really just focusing on our game and playing as a unit of seven.”Borges added that the defense must always stay aware of Noseworthy if Evans needs to leave his coverage to help another defender.OSU will battle the Wolverines at Michigan Stadium prior to the football team’s spring game at 10:30 a.m. It will be the first morning game of the season for the Buckeyes. read more

Meet the American trucker who broke the Real IRA then refused witness

MJ Engineering supplying eight Weba chutes to Lonmins EPL concentrator

first_imgLonmin has ordered eight Weba Chutes Systems to replace existing conventional chutes which have not been performing to the standard required. The eight coarse ore silo discharge chutes will feed onto a vibrating feeder at Lonmin’s Eastern Platinum (EPL) concentrator that conveys UG2 ore with 25% chrome content. The vibrating feeder operates at a peak of 180 t/h, conveying fines with a maximum lump size of 150 mm and a bulk density of 1.8 mm. “The concentrator had been experiencing an unacceptable amount of blockages and spillage with the existing chutes,” M&J Engineering’s Ted Cruikshank says. “Our brief was to design Weba chute systems that address these issues and that will consistently perform to the required specifications over the long term. Lonmin also requested access points at the back of the chutes to allow for blasting in the event of a blockage.”The Weba Chutes are being fabricated from 6 mm 350 WA mild steel plate lined with 25 mm Hardox liners with a spile bar arrangement.Cruikshank adds that M&J Engineering is also processing orders for an additional 12 Weba Chute Systems that will be deployed in various applications at other Lonmin sites.Under normal operations, Weba Chute Systems can last up to 10 years in the field and many have continued to perform effectively even longer than this.“We’re finally gaining recognition for the many unique features of the Weba Chute System concept,” says Cruikshank. “The unprecedented growth we’re experiencing has confirmed our position as international market leaders in this field. The high number of retrofits we’re currently involved in points to the fact that many conventional chutes are not living up to their suppliers’ claims.“We attribute this to a prevailing notion that chutes are little more than platework. We’ve effectively created technology that didn’t exist before and we’ve developed equipment and systems around it that address the multiple shortcomings of conventional transfer point design.”Weba Chute Systems have been primarily applied in the mining industry where materials such as copper, gold and iron ore, diamonds, coal, aggregates, cement and sand are transferred, but M&J Engineering is experiencing a steady increase in the number of enquiries from other sectors such as power generation, steelmaking, cement and food.South African manufactured Weba Chute Systems are designed according to the principle of conveyed material impacting on surfaces which already contain material. “One of the most important requirements in transfer point design is to guide and control the material from the moment it enters the system until it exits the system,” says Cruikshank. “This is addressed by the Weba Chute System concept that incorporates a ‘supertube’ or cascade effect that results in material running on material at all times.“Most dust is generated when material is transferred, but using this cascade system to create a ‘super-flow’ effect, we’re able to reduce volumes of unwanted fines and associated dust. The immediate effect of this decrease in unwanted dust and noise pollution is an enhancement of working conditions impacting positively on the health of workers, which is always a major concern in this industry. Another big benefit is a decrease in abrasion of wearing parts and consequently less maintenance is required.”Weba Chute Systems control the direction, flow and velocity of the calculated volume and type of material in each application, also taking into account belt width, belt speed, material sizes, shape and throughput.“A correct and appropriate chute design is critical and it is imperative that all these factors are taken into account,” says Cruikshank. “It’s not just about manufacturing a chute. We look at both current and historical data in order to fully understand exactly what each customer requires. We look at the most important factors that need to be addressed in a particular application and this, in some cases, could be as simple as reducing dust and spillage.”last_img read more

Agents of SHIELDs New Director Revealed

first_imgIn the second episode of the new season, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finally answered a question we’ve had since the end of last season: Who is S.H.I.E.L.D.’s new director. With all the other mysteries going on this season, it would have been too much to keep the director’s identity secret for much longer.That’s not to say they didn’t try to drag it out as much as they could. In a scene where May and Coulson meet with the director face to face, the camera focuses on different people in the room, not letting you see who the agents are actually talking to. Finally, just as the joke is getting tired, we meet S.H.I.E.L.D.’s new director: A guy named Jeffrey.Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) greets S.H.I.E.L.D.’s new director (Jason O’Mara). (Photo: Screenshot via ABC)That’s all the show is giving us at this point, but he appears to be Jeffrey Mace, also known as The Patriot. For those unfamiliar with the character, The Patriot is essentially the guy you call when you can’t get Captain America. Since Steve Rogers is busy being in movies (in-universe explanation: Has gone AWOL following the Sokovia accords), it would make sense that S.H.I.E.L.D. would install this guy to put a positive public face on the shadowy organization.He is more than that though. May still sees demon faces everywhere, which eventually drives her to violent paranoia. When she begins attacking her fellow agents, Jeffrey uses his Inhuman strength to subdue her. Unbeknownst to Coulson, she is put in a straight jacket and onto a plane headed for who knows where.The ghostly figures form a plan on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. (Photo: Screenshot via ABC)There are still plenty of mysteries yet to be solved this season. Remember that ghostly figure last episode who made everyone she touched see demon faces? It turns out she’s not the only one. After a genuinely creepy opening scene where she appears to haunt her former home, she returns to a facility in Pasadena, Calif., where she frees several other figures like her. From their arguments, we learn of a mysterious book that made them this way and that it’s somehow all “his fault.” We don’t know who “he” is, but all evidence so far points to Ghost Rider.Speaking of the spirit of vengeance, Daisy/Quake visits Robbie Reyes at work and spends the day goading him into attacking her. After another brief superhero fight, Quake tries to convince Reyes to look into why all these different gangs are suddenly working together. When she mentions some kind of cargo stolen from a facility in Pasadena, he takes off.S.H.I.E.L.D. has also traced the mysterious boxes they collected to Pasadena and the pair meet up with Fitz and Mack. After Quake and Ghost Rider save them from one of the ghostly figures, the brief S.H.I.E.L.D. reunion turns sour when Mack realizes Quake has been stealing supplies from them. Ghost Rider and Quake meet back up and join forces when Reyes reveals that he is the connection between the gangs working together and the incident in Pasadena.Ghost Rider saves Mack and Fitz from one of the “ghosts”. (Photo: Screenshot via ABC)After last week’s surprisingly strong season opener, I was prepared for a second-week slump, but Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. kept up the pace last night and delivered another very strong episode. We were given just enough information to pique our curiosity for another week. Some things were revealed, but questions still remain. Is this new director really on the up-and-up, or is he taking things in a more fascistic direction? Who are these “ghosts” and how did they get that way? Will we get to see more Ghost Rider next week? There’s a sentence I never thought I’d type before this season started.last_img read more

On Net Neutrality FCC Chairman Pushes for the Strongest Open Internet Protections

first_img 1 min read February 4, 2015 This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. U.S. Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler will seek his fellow commissioners’ support for new “net neutrality” rules that would regulate Internet service providers (ISPs) more like public utilities, he said in an op-ed on Wednesday.In an op-ed published on Wired.com, Wheeler said he aims to establish the “strongest open Internet protections ever proposed by the FCC” that would apply, for the first time, to both wireless and wired broadband providers.As expected, his proposed rules would ban ISPs from blocking and slowing down, or throttling, lawful Internet content and services as well as charging content companies for swifter delivery of their content in deals known as paid prioritization.The five-member FCC is slated to vote on the proposed new rules on Feb. 26.(Reporting by Alina Selyukh; Editing by Christian Plumb) This story originally appeared on Reuters Enroll Now for Free Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Nowlast_img read more

Ten personal travel managers recently spent nine d

first_imgTen personal travel managers recently spent nine days in Vietnam on a TravelManagers exclusive “Lady Get-Together” famil that was specifically designed to showcase some of the experiences and locations most favoured by the so-called “she-conomy.”The group began their itinerary in Hoi An, escorted by K J Slater, the Australian-based Business Development Manager for Vietnam Travel & Cruise. After a walking tour of the old quarter, they were treated to the first of many delicious Vietnamese meals – at Anthony Bourdain’s favourite spot to pick up a classic Vietnam baguette, Banh My Phuong.“Hoi An was fantastic,” said Jodie Payne, representative for Cranbrook, QLD. “I loved trying the local food specialities and the town is so beautiful, especially walking along the river at night with all the lanterns glowing.

first_img Celine Dion has cancelled another Las Vegas concert due to “doctor’s orders.”According to a statement on Dion’s Facebook page, she missed Tuesday night’s show at the Colosseum because she was “recovering from inflammation of the throat” and was ordered “to take one more day of rest in order to fully recover.”The statement added that Dion should be able to return to the stage for her next scheduled concert on Friday.The Quebec superstar made a similar announcement Saturday, when she cancelled a show that day because she was “not feeling well.” She said at the time that she expected to be better by Tuesday.Dion’s show the previous Friday evening made headlines when a female fan, who appeared to be inebriated, somehow eluded security and made it on stage.Dion calmly told the woman: “I’m glad you came up onstage tonight, I’m glad you just wanted to come closer to me,” before being vigorously embraced by the fan.The crooner waved off security guards and let the fan have another minute on stage before she was walked off.“Some people go through a lot, and some people need to talk. And I want to say, ‘Thank you,’ to all of you because for maybe five minutes we had given this lady a moment to talk,” Dion then said, before thanking her security guards.———Video of Dion’s fan encounter on Friday: http://bit.ly/2ANZlYR Celine Dion performs “My Heart will Go On” at the Billboard Music Awards at the T-Mobile Arena on Sunday, May 21, 2017, in Las Vegas.
