Quinlan Impresses In First Series

first_imgThe year 12 student became one of only a handful of 17-year-olds to ever represent Australia at the Open’s level in the series, doing so with fellow 17-year-old Charlotte Caslick. It has been an impressive rise for Quinlan, who has achieved plenty in a few short years. At just 15 years of age in 2010, Quinlan was a part of the Sydney Mets Women’s Open team that won the 2010 National Touch League title and was there again when the New South Wales Mets won the 2011 Elite Eight title. She was also brought into the New South Wales Combined High Schools 18’s Girls side in 2010 as a 15-year-old and has won two consecutive titles with the team. She was also one of the youngest members of the Australian 18’s Girls side that defeated New Zealand three games to nil in the 2011 Youth Trans Tasman Series in Canberra. Quinlan says that to make the Australian Women’s Open team at such a young age was ‘really exciting’ and something she didn’t expect so early in her career. “I was really happy, it was one of my big goals to make the Australian Women’s Open team. I expected it a bit later, I didn’t expect it this early,” Quinlan said.  “We (Charlotte and I) are so young, I didn’t think we’d get the opportunity at this stage, but it’s really good.”Prior to the series, Quinlan said that what she was looking forward to the most was learning from the game’s best Women’s players. “Just playing with the girls, getting a lot of experience, I think experience is the main thing.”“I’ve learnt a lot from the girls, the older ones especially, like Woodsy (Kelly Woods), KJ (Kristy Judd) and Weezo (Louise Winchester). “There’s a lot of experienced players in the team…I’ve played with KJ and Weezo before but the Wollongong girls like Jess McCall and the Queensland girls, it’s the first time I got to play with them.”Quinlan impressed in her first series at the Australian Women’s Open level, playing all three games and winning the Kristy Judd award at the Australian Presentation Function following the series.The Kristy Judd award was created in the lead up to the 2011 World Cup, given to a player who epitomises the characteristics of one of the stalwarts of Women’s Touch Football. These characteristics include showing dedication and commitment, always putting the team first, being a good role model for the game of Touch Football, playing consistently well for Australia always in a good spirit and shows strong determination, passion and a competitive nature. Despite their achievements to date, both Quinlan and Caslick are still eligible to represent their country at a Youth level next year. “I was still a young one in that team (in 2011) and I’ll still be able to play next year as well.”last_img read more

Kyoto’s First ‘Dispersed Hotel’ Is Spread Throughout the City

first_img World’s First Luxury Space Hotel Promises Climbing Wall, Low-Gravity Basketball Courts Live Out Your Westworld Dreams at Casteel Creek Retreat Next 1 of 4 Give Your Hypercar the Garage It Deserves with a Custom Aston Martin Lair Most decent hotels work hard to ensure guests never need to leave during their stay. With a plush bed, good food and drink, available spa massages, and maybe even a little live entertainment all within a minutes’ walk, why would they want to? However, with so much luxury and convenience on tap, it’s easy to get complacent and forget that there’s often an entire city (or beach or countryside) outside waiting to be explored. Guests at Japan’s first and only “dispersed hotel” have no choice but to leave their building — it’s designed that way. Editors’ Recommendations center_img This Belgian-Monastery-Turned-Hotel Has Us Craving a Trip to Antwerp Learn Guitar (and Don’t Give Up) With the Fender Play App One of Kyoto’s newest hotels, ENSO ANGO, consists of five separate buildings spread throughout the city that together function as a single hotel. Each building is uniquely adorned with decor that blends Swiss and traditional Japanese design. Local artists carefully designed every aspect from the staff uniforms to the wallpaper to the furnishings to the tsuboniwa (traditional interior gardens found in many Kyoto homes).The hotel’s common amenities — including the restaurant, tearoom, gallery, yoga studio, bar, gym, and more — are all scattered throughout the collection of buildings. Depending on where guests want to go, moving “within” the hotel requires a leisurely five- to 10-minute walk. The idea is to encourage travelers not to get so comfortable in their rooms that they forget to explore Kyoto altogether. Previous The property is centrally located between two of the city’s main roads, but “out of the static loop of large hotels and staged photo opportunities.” It’s an intentional move to allow guests to experience the authentic Kyoto. The luxury hotel offers a host of traditional Japanese activities like yoga classes, talks by local artists, obanzai (home-style) culinary classes, guided zen meditation with Buddhist priests from the nearby Ryōsokuin temple, and jogging tours that pass ancient Shinto shrines and the Kamogawa River.The idea of dispersed hotels is nothing new. During the last century, the so-called albergo diffuso concept was popularized in Italy as a way to save small rural towns suffering from severe depopulation. A similar project is currently underway in Switzerland’s smallest municipality, Corippo, to rebrand the town’s dozens of buildings as a single “scattered hotel.”Guest quarters and in-room amenities at ENSO ANGO vary widely between buildings, but most rates start around $115 per night.last_img read more

Montreals Belz Hasidic community celebrates spiritual leaders visit

first_imgMONTREAL – Red carpets, dancing crowds, bonfires and street celebrations are some of the ways Montreal’s Belz orthodox Jewish community have marked a rare visit by their spiritual leader over the past several days.The visit began with a welcome ceremony on Tuesday and ended Saturday night when a large crowd attended a midnight procession last night to honour Rabbi Yissachar Dov Rokeach, who is visiting the city for the first time in two decades.Over the past week, the rabbi has been given a rock star-like greeting as large crowds have gathered to catch a glimpse of the long-serving spiritual leader, who has led the community since 1966.“It’s historic, it’s very emotional, it’s the time we’ve been waiting for, for so long,” community member Chezky Reiss said.He said the 70-year-old leader is in poor health and rarely travels outside of Israel.Reiss said thousands of out-of-towners have come for the events, which included bonfires and festive meals on Wednesday and Thursday to mark the Jewish holiday of Lag B’Omer, which commemorates the the revelation of the kabbalah, the core text of Jewish mysticism.The ultra-orthodox Belz community, a Hasidic group that traces its roots to Eastern Europe, counts between 2,000 and 3,000 members in Montreal.Rabbi Yissachar Dov Rokeach has been credited with overseeing the sect’s post-Holocaust rebuilding, which has led to the establishment of communities in Canada, Europe and the United States.In the past, tensions have flared between the Hasidic community and some of their non-Jewish neighbours in the city’s Outremont borough.In March a handful of citizens drew criticism for donning yellow badges on their clothing at a borough council meeting to protest the Jewish community’s use of school buses.The citizens said they were protesting the vehicles blocking the street, while others told them the badges evoked the Holocaust, when European Jews were forced to wear yellow stars.In November 2016, citizens voted against allowing Hasidic Jews to open more synagogues on a main street in Outremont, sparking accusations of anti-Semitism.This time, Reiss said the organizers made efforts to minimize traffic disruptions and noise in order to avoid a repeat of past tensions.He said the community sent out letters and started a Twitter account to share photos and inform residents of what was happening.They also hosted most of the festivities in a giant tent erected outside the residential zone.While Reiss said he received “a few nasty letters,” he said non-Jewish community members have been supportive, and many have even joined the crowds straining to see the rabbi.“The majority of tension is people who don’t understand what’s happening,” he said.Reiss said the rabbi is expected to keep a lower profile for the remainder of his visit, which ends Tuesday.last_img read more

Toronto parents say condo boom is sending schools over the edge

first_imgTORONTO – Serina Manek has been living in Leslieville for seven years, and has watched it go from a rough-around-the-edges area in Toronto’s east end, to one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods.The demand for Leslieville was always building, she says, but when the condos started going up, the boom of young families started to have an effect on the neighbourhood dynamic, and ultimately, the schools.“It was starting to burst at the seams with just the young families coming in at first,” said Manek, who has a five-year-old son and three-year-old daughter. “But with the addition of the condos, things are becoming unmanageable. It’s too much.”Toronto public schools in condo-heavy neighbourhoods are starting to feel the squeeze of a dense population. The Toronto District School Board has been warning new home buyers in certain neighbourhoods that not all children will be accommodated in their home school.TDSB spokesman Ryan Bird says the board has placed signs on the street level warning potential home buyers that a spot in a home school isn’t guaranteed, and similar warnings are also included in the home buyer’s agreement. Bird says the most recent statistics show that there are 110 new developments in Toronto with those warnings.Leslieville is one of them, and Manek says that she doesn’t know if her daughter will be able to go to the same school as her brother when she starts kindergarten.“It’s unsettling to walk around the neighbourhood and see that sign, and for that to be your form of communication,” said Manek. “I guess the frustration is the communication, but I don’t know where that communication would come from.”Sitting in a buzzing Leslieville park — one that Manek notes used to be empty a few years ago — she says that she doesn’t see the population boom as sustainable.Her friend, Holly Andruchuk, will be sending her son to his first year of kindergarten in the upcoming school year, but says that the implications of her crowded nearby school just keep piling up.Their school, Morse Street Junior Public School, is nestled on a small street just off of Leslieville’s main thoroughfare. In 2010, it was home to around 200 students, according to the TDSB. This year, it’s grown more than double that with over 500 students. Bird says the dramatic increase is due to changing demographics in the region, as well as the addition of French immersion at the school.Andruchuk says that the high number of students means that her son will be in a classroom with as many as 27 other students, and that is one of five kindergarten classes this year. And his classroom will be on the second floor, which she says is unusual for a kindergarten student.“Our teacher on orientation night actually said that, because we’re on the second floor, our kids don’t go outside as often,” said Andruchuk. “Because in winter time, trying to dress four- and five-year-olds (and then get them down the stairs) is a challenge on its own.”However, Andruchuk is optimistic that her son’s education won’t suffer. She believes that the community will have to step up to support their children in a way that a stressed school system might not be able to. Her friend Manek, however, is not so sure. She thinks that ultimately, some parents will give up on the Leslieville area and move on further away.Whether a community culture can save Leslieville or not, the problem isn’t isolated to the one Toronto neighbourhood. Bird says that the housing development warnings are sprawled in locations all across the city.Next door in Mississauga, Ont., the Peel District School Board uses the same warning messages to prospective buyers in the crowded city centre area, where more families are living in condos than originally expected.“The numbers would bear out a trend that families are seeking a more affordable form of apartment condominiums,” said Randy Wright, a planning controller with the PDSB, who says that finding land for new schools for the incoming families is proving to be a difficult task.And across the country in Vancouver, the city’s public school board says it can’t always guarantee that students will be able to go to their home school, and may have to be bussed out to further schools.In the meantime, Andruchuk and Manek are gearing up for the upcoming school year, and plan to volunteer in the school system as much as possible.“I will always put my kids’ education first,” said Manek.Note to readers: This is a corrected story.

Morocco Selects 12 Cities 14 Stadiums For 2026 World Cup Bid

Rabat – As the race to win the hosting rights for the 2026 FIFA World Cup intensifies, the African country has selected 12 cities to host the enormous tournament, according to Moroccan sports news outlet Liondelatlas.Morocco is competing against a three-nation North American bid submitted by the USA, Canada and Mexico. A decision on the winner is expected around June 13 during the FIFA Congress.The source added that Morocco’s Minister of Sports and Youth, Rachid Talbi El Alami, announced in Rabat during a press conference on Tuesday that the cities were selected according to several criteria, including hotels and transportation infrastructure.The 12 cities chosen to host the international tournament are Casablanca, Marrakech, Tetouan, Nador, Meknes, El Jadida, Fez, Oujda, Tangier, Agadir, Rabat and Ouarzazate. When one of the journalists asked the minister about the choice of Ouarzazate, El Alami replied, “It is a city known internationally for its cinema industry and for its solar power plant Noor.”Regarding the stadiums, the sports website said that 14 stadiums will be ready by 2026 to host the World Cup. Marrakech and Casablanca will have the privilege of having two stadiums each.Earlier this week, Moulay Hafid Elalamy, Morocco’s Minister of Trade and the Chairman of Morocco’s 2026 World Cup Bid Committee, voiced Morocco’s willingness to do its utmost in order to clinch the right to host the tournament.According to Elalamy, the committee has already formulated a strategy to highlight and exploit Morocco’s potential and its apparent advantages.“Morocco has already embarked on a vast and ambitious investment program in the areas of infrastructure and hotel industry that meets the needs of the local population in the first place,” said Elalamy.Elalamy has also discussed Morocco’s readiness to build new stadiums across the country to house the dozens of matches planned for the tournament.“We are also proposing modular stadiums that will continue to operate after the World Cup,” he said, stressing that, “no dirham will be spent if it cannot ultimately serve the population.”Recently, Morocco hosted the African Nations Championship (CHAN), which saw its conclusion on February 4. Throughout the competition, members of the African Football Confederation (CAF), including its President Ahmad Ahmad lauded Morocco’s commitment to the competition. He also pointed out that Morocco is capable of organizing big international competitions like the 2026 World Cup.According to Ahmad, the members of the CAF organizing committee and members of the executive bureau, football teams, and referees have unanimously praised Morocco’s excellent organization and preparedness, from the quality of the football stadia and arbitration procedures to the quality of local infrastructure and hotels.Kwesi Nyantakyi, first vice president of CAF, shared the same opinion as that of his boss (Ahmad), emphasizing that Morocco “has honored Africa” with its “excellent organization of 2018 CHAN.” read more

Official Repair for broken rods on San FranciscoOakland Bay Bridge could cost

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Official: Repair for broken rods on San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge could cost $5M-$10M by Jason Dearen, The Associated Press Posted May 8, 2013 4:27 pm MDT OAKLAND, Calif. – The planned repair for broken seismic safety rods on the new span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge could cost between $5 million and $10 million, a state transportation official said Wednesday.Officials still don’t know whether the repair will be done in time for the span’s scheduled Labor Day opening, but say it’s still possible. A decision is expected May 29.California Transportation Commission Executive Director Andre Boutros told a meeting of the Bay Area Toll Authority that the repair for the 32 snapped rods involves installing steel saddles.The saddles would be placed over the base of the seismic shock absorber that was initially intended to attach to the bridge by the rods. About 430 steel cables covered in concrete will tie down the saddles. Another repair option would have been more expensive.Officials said they aren’t taking short cuts in an attempt to get the bridge opened on schedule.“We’re dealing here with not only engineering concerns but public confidence, and public confidence has taken a beating over the last few weeks, and we are mindful of that,” said Steve Heminger, executive director of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission.Bridge officials Wednesday also sent a letter to the Federal Highway Administration requesting an independent review of the California Department of Transportation’s investigation into the broken rods, and the chosen fix.The rods connect earthquake safety devices called shear keys to the deck of the bridge and a large concrete cap. Shear keys are like big, steel shock absorbers that help control swaying during an earthquake.The new bridge, which is replacing a span damaged during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, is already years late in opening and billions of dollars over budget.Documents released last month by the California Department of Transportation show its inspectors found structural integrity issues with some of the rods several years ago, before they were installed.The documents were unclear about whether the problems were remedied before the rods were delivered and installed, but official later said they were. The inspectors noted that they failed elongation tests for structural integrity and said they were concerned about the quality of work by the company that galvanized them to prevent corrosion.According to a metallurgists’ investigative report released Wednesday, the steel in the broken rods was “found to be less than ideal.”The report said the hydrogen corrosion in the rods could have been discovered earlier if Caltrans had required tougher tests. The agency is developing new requirements that would require more testing in the future.Crews also are testing bolts installed in shear keys on other parts of the bridge. So far there have been no signs of weakness, Heminger said.Also, bridge crews are developing further “wet tests” to address concerns that bolts might corrode in the future.“After the wet tests we’ll know whether these bolts are OK or not, and those that are not we’re going to rip them out and replace them,” Marwan Nader, a bridge structural engineer working on the repairs, said.___Follow Jason Dearen on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/JHDearen read more

Health climate change top priorities for Caribbean island States addressing UN

In his speech to the 68th high-level debate, Prime Minister Denzil Douglas of Saint Kitts and Nevis stressed that special attention must be paid to the high incidence of diabetes and other non-communicable diseases plaguing the Caribbean. “No discussion on the issue of development can progress without reference to the area of health and in particular to chronic illnesses that continue to plague our societies with relevant loss of lives, thus retarding our development thrust,” said Prime Minister Douglas.He noted that there is a strong nexus between a nation’s health and its level of productivity, a “nation’s wealth lies in the health of its people.”The UN World Health Organization (WHO) and its partners have worked with the national authorities to reverse the high incidence of non-communicable diseases in the region, particularly through testing.Mr. Douglas is among the high-level officials speaking at the UN Headquarters in New York about issues of individual national and international relevance, as well as on the debate theme which focuses on the anti-poverty targets known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and a sustainable agenda for the years after 2015.Turning to the wider theme of the MDGs, Mr. Douglas stressed that small island developing States (SIDS) remain a special case for sustainable development and necessitate continued cooperation and assistance from the international community. Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. UN Photo/Ryan BrownPrime Minister Ralph Gonsalves of Saint Vincent and The Grenadines similarly urged greater official development assistance (ODA) amidst “significant backsliding” in global partnerships.“Without predictable flows of meaningful, nondiscretionary assistance, the post-2015 development programme will remain, substantially, a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but rarely if ever attained,” he cautioned in his statement to the Assembly.Mr. Gonsalves also had harsh words for the international community on its “endless, rudderless and seemingly vacuous” negotiations on climate change.Caribbean countries are on the forefront of climate change and while for major emitters and historical polluters the fallout is a question of “dollars and cents,” for the people on the islands, it is “life and death.” Among other topics discussed in their speeches, both leaders also highlighted the legacy of slavery and the Caribbean Community’s (CARICOM) support for reparation associated with the atrocities of slavery.While difficult to quantify, Mr. Douglas said, the deleterious effects associated with the atrocities of slavery translated into much hardship and poverty for their descendents.Meanwhile, Mr. Gonsalves called reparation a “special pillar in the post-2015 development agenda” and called on European countries engaged in the trade centuries ago “to repair the contemporary legacy of their historic wrongs.” The General Debate continues through 1 October. read more

We are entitled to the truth today Kenny to discuss McCabe public

first_img Feb 13th 2017, 9:05 PM 19,335 Views ‘We are entitled to the truth today’: Kenny to discuss McCabe public inquiry with Micheál Martin Maurice McCabe and his wife, Lorraine, have called for the government to answer a number of questions. 102 Comments Image: Laura Hutton/Rollingnews.ie https://jrnl.ie/3237928 Garda whistleblower Maurice McCabe Image: Laura Hutton/Rollingnews.ie Garda whistleblower Maurice McCabe Share679 Tweet Email1 In a statement released this afternoon, Maurice McCabe has called for a full public inquiry into the allegations made against him, saying that “there is no reason to have any secret or private inquiry”.In a joint statement with his wife, Lorraine, McCabe said that they have endured “eight years of great suffering, private nightmare, public defamation and state vilification” after he had brought public attention to issues within An Garda Síochana.Speaking earlier today, the Taoiseach reinforced that a commission of investigation would set out to establish the truth as quickly as possibly.The couple said, although Health Minister Simon Harris said that they were entitled to “truth and justice”, that they wouldn’t get that if they had to wait 18 months for the findings of a private inquiry.They reference that state investigations, such as the O’Higgins Commission and internal Garda investigations, were all conducted in private and say that the public “has little or no appreciation of what was done, and attempted to be done, to Maurice in the course of its hearings”.They say that the allegation made of sexual abuse in 2006 against Maurice, “against the background of the current Tusla controversy”, was attempted to be used during the O’Higgins Commission as part of “repeated attempts” to discredit “his motives and testimony”.For these reasons, we have consistently submitted that any further inquiry into these matters must be a public inquiry.The McCabes call for a number of questions to be answered in the course of a public inquiry.They include if senior gardaí were formally or informally notified of the alleged sexual abuse case against McCabe, which gardaí were involved in the claim, and why McCabe was not informed of these allegations in 2013.The pair add:We are entitled to know and to be informed by members of Dáil Éireann acting on our behalf and on behalf of all citizens concerned with the truth of these matters, whether the present or former members of the government were briefed formally or informally of the making of such allegations at any time by An Garda Síochana, or the Commissioner of An Garda Síochana at any time since August 2013.The McCabes say that the answer to these questions could be given now and put in the public domain without prejudicing any future public inquiry.They say that if these questions were answered now, “the public will be in a position to know who to believe”.Fianna Fáil justice spokesperson Jim O’Callaghan issued a statement this evening backing McCabe’s call for a public inquiry.He said: “Fianna Fáil has long maintained that the response to this issue must have the full support of the McCabe family.Accordingly we fully support their call for a public inquiry to be conducted into this matter. We also believe a public inquiry will benefit An Garda Síochána and the general public.Labour leader Brendan Howlin also supported the call for a public inquiry.Catch up on how this story has developed today, with developments from Katherine Zappone, Garda Commissioner Nóirín O’Sullivan and Tusla:Zappone ‘has not considered’ resigning over McCabe and Tusla revelations Tusla to appear before Dáil committee next week as McCabe controversy rumbles on‘I am innocent’: Nóirín O’Sullivan says she won’t step asideSinn Féin publishes motion of no confidence in Government By Sean Murray Updated 9.05pmTAOISEACH ENDA KENNY has said that he would consider holding a public inquiry into allegations of a smear campaign against garda whistleblower Maurice McCabe, and that he would discuss the matter with Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin tomorrow morning.He told RTÉ News that he would try and see “the most effective way at finding the truth here”It is believed that Martin was meeting McCabe, himself, this evening amid political pressure on the government to hold an inquiry in public after a statement issued by McCabe this afternoon.

En images les trésors du tombeau de Toutankhamon

first_imgEn images : les trésors du tombeau de ToutankhamonQuelques semaines après les recherches génétiques effectuées sur la momie de Toutankhamon, retour sur les somptueux objets qui ornaient le tombeau du jeune pharaon lors de sa découverte par le Dr Howard Carter en 1922, dans la vallée des rois.Les fouilles du tombeau de Toutankhamon ont révélé le trésor royal le plus complet jamais découvert : 3.850 objets des plus raffinés, censés accompagner le jeune défunt dans sa vie après la mort. Parmi eux : masques ornés de feuille d’or, cercueils en or massif, coffrets en albâtre blanc, vases remplis d’huiles précieuses, trône, jeux et même cannes sculptées. Des objets rares et précieux mais aussi d’autres de la vie quotidienne qui nous donnent des informations sur l’existence de Toutankhamon. Les centaines de cannes déposées près de son tombeau indiquent par exemple que le pharaon avait des difficultés à marcher. En 2010, les analyses ADN ont enfin révélé le nom de la maladie dont il souffrait : un paludisme, qui aurait également causé sa mort. Ce trésor nous révèle aussi d’importantes informations sur les goûts et la vie privée du plus célèbre des pharaons d’Égypte. Les nombreux instruments de chasse comprenant arcs, flèches, épées et boomerangs, montrent l’attrait du garçon pour cette pratique. On peut également en apprendre beaucoup sur sa relation de couple résultant d’un mariage heureux avec Ankhesamon, sa propre sœur d’après les analyses ADN récentes. Les objets religieux sont bien sûr abondants. On a notamment mis au jour un sarcophage à l’image d’Osiris, dieu des morts, mais aussi un coffre monumental où étaient placés les vases canopes, contenant les viscères du roi. Quatre déesses placées aux quatre points cardinaux avaient ainsi pour rôle de protéger les entrailles de Toutankhamon.Cette collection comprend également des statues de gardiens et de divinités, ainsi que des objets magiques destinés à protéger et à aider le roi dans l’au-delà. S’ils n’ont pas aidé Toutankhamon à entrer dans la vie éternelle, ces grigris antiques ont en tout cas permis au trésor d’avoir une vie, 3.000 ans après la mort du pharaon. Découvrir le trésor en images :  https://www.maxisciences.com/toutankhamon/le-tresor-funeraire-de-toutankhamon_art6056.htmlLe 28 février 2010 à 13:13 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

How can the US Forest Service keep up with Alaskas tourism boom

first_imgDan Kirkwood says the part of this location’s appeal is that float planes could make due without a dock. (Photo by Elizabeth Jenkins/Alaska’s Energy Desk)Southeast Alaska is projected to see upwards of one million tourists this year. Many of those visitors will venture into the wilder parts of the Tongass National Forest for a guided hike or bear viewing, and that requires a special use permit from the Forest Service. But as tourism increases and federal budgets shrink, a permitting backlog has been growing.Listen nowDan Kirkwood, a guide with Pack Creek Bear Tours, recently took a float plane to a remote spot in the Tongass National Forest. But the purpose of his trip wasn’t to spot a bear.“We’re here because this is an outstanding, cool location that we have the opportunity to explore in the Tongass,” Kirkwood said. “And we’re really excited about getting access to a new place. So we want to scope it out.”The scenery includes a big broad meadow and rapids that will squirm with salmon when the fish spawn.This is Kirkwood’s and his guiding partner’s first time here. They want to see if it’s a good place to bring small tours of up to five people: visitors who want to experience brown bear country up close with the safety of a guide.“For us, this is the wilderness. This is a place that’s unfamiliar,” Kirkwood said. “But [for bears] this is main street. This is their living room. The trails in here having probably been used for centuries.”But to be able to bring people into this bear’s house, Kirkwood must first receive what’s called a special use permit from the U.S. Forest Service, and he might he have bit of wait.There’s a backlog of well over 6,000 of these permits nationally. That includes a variety of commercial interests. In the Tongass specifically, there are dozens of recreation outfits waiting to hear back.Kirkwood wonders how the forest service will manage to process all of the special use permits, which seem to be piling up.“I think that we just really need the forest service to really buckle down and focus on tourism and plan long term,” Kirkwood said.Dan Kirkwood and Bjorn Dihle get ready to check out this area in the Tongass National Forest, which could be the sight of future bear tours. (Photo by Elizabeth Jenkins/Alaska’s Energy Desk)The reason for the backlog has nothing to do with bears. Wildfires are burning a massive hole in the agency’s budget.Twenty years ago, wildfires accounted for 16 percent of the forest service’s annual funds. In recent times, that number has ballooned to more than half of the budget, a phenomenon attributed to longer burning seasons due to climate change.Patrick Shannon manages the Alaska Forest Fund for the National Forest Foundation, which was created in 2015 to help the forest service maintain its national lands in Alaska after funding continued to be slashed.“What that has done is it’s taken away money the forest service could use, for instance, for recreation,” Shannon said.Shannon is hopeful that more help is on the way. Congress recently granted the forest service the ability to tap into additional emergency funds.“They haven’t identified where that other money is going to come from yet,” Shannon said. “But the first step is to give them the authority to spend other money.”That won’t happen until 2020.In the meantime, Congress did increase the forest service budget for this fiscal year. But it’s still too early to tell if it’s enough to compensate for the wildfire season to come and how that will shake out for recreation funding.Packing up after scouting out the area, Dan Kirkwood concludes this spot in the Tongass has plenty to offer.“We would definitely apply for permits here,” Kirkwood said. “It’s fabulous bear habitat. The scenery is off the charts.”But Kirkwood is uncertain how long it will be before he can show it to tourists. According a regional forest service spokesperson, a special use permit can take up to two years.And he doesn’t see the demand to explore these wilder places slowing down.last_img read more

Audi Q3 S Base Model Set for India Launch in August Report

first_imgGerman luxury carmaker Audi seems to be gearing up for a series of launches in India. The company which has launched its high performance S6 in the sub-continent a few days back is now rumoured to launch a low variant of its Q3 model in August.Indian Auto Blog reported that Audi may be launching the base variant of Q3 in India as ‘Q3 S’ with a price tag of around ₹25 lakh. With the upcoming launch, Audi is seemingly trying to target the price sensitive market of India.Interestingly, the upcoming Q3 would not called ‘Q3 Sport’. “Internationally, Audi associates ‘Sport’ with their performance models or they use it in the form of ‘Sportback’ to convey the design of a car. Calling a Q3 which has been conceived to appeal to the price conscious as ‘Sport’ is not something Audi wants to do,” reported the website citing a source.The upcoming Q3 S is rumoured to pack a diesel engine and is likely to debut in the second week of August. Audi India which has marked a growth of 21 percent during the first half of 2013 recently launched its S6 and RS 5 Coupe in India. The company also reviewed the prices of its SUVs in the domestic market after the annual budget. It said that the prices of all its India-bound models will be increased by 2-3 percent to counter the fall of the rupee in the global market.last_img read more

Houston Startups Tapped To Tackle High Priority Problems In Healthcare

first_imgPRNewsFoto/Texas Medical CenterTexas Medical Center (TMC) today announced the opening of its accelerator program, TMCx, one of the core components of the TMC’s Innovation Institute and the first step in the TMC’s long-term plans to become one of the world’s premiere life science commercialization clusters. TMCx is housed in a state-of-the-art, 100,000 square-foot facility and is designed to catapult the development of early-stage companies. (PRNewsFoto/Texas Medical Center)When pathogens suddenly appear in new places, like when Zika took hold of Brazil in 2015, medical researchers and public health officials scramble to develop and ship treatments as quickly as possible, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) wants to make that process faster. At the Texas Medical Center Innovation Institute, HHS is tapping Houston startups to address health security needs. Along with eight other startup accelerators around the country, companies brought on by the Innovation Institute will work with federal health officials to respond to high priority national health needs. Photo by Davis Land | Houston Public MediaDuring an event held in Houston on December 14, 2017, William McKeon, president and CEO of the Texas Medical Center, highlighted that the institution is embarked in a path towards growth and innovation.To start off, HHS has brought two challenges: detecting illness before symptoms arise, using at home diagnostics, and addressing sepsis. “It takes too long today for people to know that they’ve been infected. Even now with the emergence of something like Zika, the best assets that we have are sitting in centralized laboratories,” said Rick Bright, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response at HHS. “But it still might take three weeks or more for a pregnant woman to know that she may have been exposed to Zika.”  The initiative is one started by a new HHS unit called DRIVe, a program kicked off by a 2016 law that prioritized healthcare innovation, according to a Texas Medical Center news release.  Sharelast_img read more

How the hell is Super Smash Bros Melee still this popular

first_imgSuper Smash Bros. Melee is best-known for being that one game that everyone who owned a GameCube had to have. Over the past few years, it’s picked up even more steam in the competitive fighting game community. And that’s… a little odd isn’t it? At this point, Melee is pushing 15 years — practically Jurassic for most games. It’s so old that competitive players need to lug around tube TVs to tournaments.Despite all that, Melee has one of the largest followings in the fighting game scene. Sunday closed out EVO 2016, the biggest fighting game tournament of the year. Street Fighter headlined the event, but coming in second (by viewer count) was Melee. Smash 4 for the Wii U launched less than two years ago, plus you can play it on one of them fancy HD screens. So what gives?In a word? Drama. People love a good story. Before we even get to the combatants and the ups and downs of the competition, the fact that Melee has hung around is, in itself, a story.Melee the UnderdogMelee wasn’t ever designed to be played in professional tournaments. Where other fighters will go through years of testing to get the balance just perfect, Melee is a party game at heart; it’s there to let you play with for your favorite Nintendo characters and wail on your friends.But competitive players found a way. By nixing most of the stages, the game’s signature items (like the Poke Ball and Home Run Bat) and laying down an aggressive set of rules that the designer himself thinks is ridiculous, the game is balanced… ish. Melee is playable in a Frankensteinian way at the competitive level, but only just.It’s enough that most “serious” fighting game players refuse to acknowledge Melee as something that can or should be played in tournaments. People love underdogs though, and in spite of Nintendo’s attempts to move on (at the very least to more recent Smash Bros. releases), Melee endures.Back in 2013, Melee hadn’t yet garnered the competitive attention it has now. It was often left off the roster for the bigger fighting game tourneys like EVO. But, tournament organizers wanted to give Melee (as well as a few smaller games like Skullgirls) a chance to earn a slot at the event.EVO officials put together a donation drive, stating that whichever game got the most donations in its name would be included. Melee fans raised almost $100,000, beating out the next most popular game, Skullgirls, by $20,000. After falling out of the spotlight when Major League Gaming — the US’ largest eSports community at the time — dropped Melee back in 2007, the plucky fighter was back, and more popular than ever.The Five Gods of SmashIn 2008, it wasn’t clear that Melee would ever reach major adoption again. In what fans have come to call the “Dark Age,” Melee wasn’t a regular at any major tournament for over a year. As bigger competitions like MLG and EVO shifted over to the newer Super Smash Bros. Brawl, many simply forgot about Melee entirely.That was until Smash player Alukard held the Revival of Melee Tournament. It was the first tournament where two of the five players who would come to be known as Gods of Smash played. Mew2King, Armada, HungryBox, Mango, and Dr. PP, the gods earned their titles in a stretch of tournaments running from 2009 to now. Each of them has traded wins and rarely lose to anyone outside of the group. And it’s these five that are credited not just with bringing Smash back, but giving it what every good sports drama needs — a story.Each of the five represents a different personality or play style, inviting fans to project themselves onto their favorite. For my own history as an almost-competitive player, I came to idolize Armada. For years he specialized in playing Princess Peach from the Super Mario Bros. games. At the time, people weren’t sure that Peach was viable at the competitive level. Most matches centered on Fox, Falco, Sheik, and Marth. But here Armada was, pushing a new line of strategies and playing a totally different kind of game.A couple of years later in the grand finals of Pound V, he did the same thing again when he picked Young Link to match HungryBox’s Jigglypuff. Young Link was (and still is) considered to be one of the worst characters in the game. It was an unprecedented move that gave people who played with “bad” characters hope. And right then, Armada revived the dream of Smash — that anyone can play whichever fighter they love and do well. It’s a fantasy, sure. After all, I’ve been working on my Young Link game for years and I’m still nothing. But that narrative — that you could one day be a champion — mattered. What’s more, Armada became the representative of low-tier mains (the primary character someone uses in a game) in general.That’s the killer, and each of the other Smash gods became proxies for their fans’ personal narratives. In the same way that New Yorkers cheer for the Yankees, smashers of all sorts could hitch their identity to another player. Hungrybox became the likable guy who invented a new style of play because, as he says, he can’t move his fingers as quickly as other players. Mango mastered a wild, unpredictable style of play that channels drunken boxing. Choosing one of the gods to follow was almost like buying into their micro-religion. Smash players became metonymic. And when I bought into Armada’s fandom, he became my avatar. When he lost, I lost.The Platinum AgeThe shift was so dramatic to the Smash community that fans now herald this as the “Platinum Age.” Tournaments have seen tenfold increases in participation, with thousands of players registering and competing at the largest tournaments. With that influx, the game’s started to change.For years several characters were seen as far above the rest. Fox, Falco, Peach, Marth and Jigglypuff were the best of the best. In the past two years, though, once versatile players like Armada have dropped their old characters in favor of Fox. The consensus seems to be that at the highest levels, he’s the only one worth playing at all. Of the five, Hungrybox is the only one that’s stuck with his original character. Until Sunday night, he had also never won EVO and sometimes struggled to keep up with the other top players. His victory legitimized non-Fox characters, and the narrative of Smash has shifted.Scores of new players have brought with them a bunch of new tactics and popular characters. The old gods’ tactics have grown stale and there’s fresh faces eager to unseat them. Some, like Plup, have won matches against a couple of the gods. No one has defeated all five just yet, but it’s only a matter of time.And that’s what makes this epic such a fascinating one to follow. Melee, despite being fifteen years old, keeps changing. Its fans have changed and the culture around it continues to evolve, weaving a story of a weird, underdog that clawed its way back into prominence. If anything, Melee was on the verge of stagnation not long ago. The five gods became so insular and so much better than everyone else, that their reign seemed like a given. But since EVO 2013 the community has grown faster than anyone expected. Backed by a burgeoning crop of new styles and players, Melee won’t be returning to the aether anytime soon.last_img read more

Costa Rica to host World Surf League comp in Esterillos Este

Costa Rica’s continued rise on the surfing scene took another giant leap on Tuesday when it was announced that the country will play host to a world surf tour event for the first time in over a decade.The World Surf League (WSL), the sport’s international sanctioning body, will hold the Costa Rica Pro men’s and women’s qualifying series event from Oct. 5-9 at Esterillos Este in Puntarenas.Costa Rica surf legend Diego Naranjo announced on his Facebook page Tuesday night that his surf company Orange Wave worked for 10 months to assure a WSL event in Tico waters. On top of getting the official license from the league, Naranjo said he also had to clear some red tape hurdles with local authorities like those at the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT).In working side by side with the tourism institute, the international surf event can help promote Costa Rica to surfers and fans from all over the globe, he said.“There’s a strong movement that is happening all around us in Panama and Nicaragua with regards to designing tourism around surfing,” Naranjo told The Tico Times on Wednesday. “In a sense Costa Rica has been sleeping on this opportunity and we need to promote surf again to travelers.”Costa Rica’s last official world qualifying series events were at the turn of the century with a pair of Billabong Pro tournaments in 2001 and 2002.Brian Robbins, who is in charge of selecting event sites for the WSL, said Costa Rica stood out because of its penchant for year-round waves that don’t fluctuate too strongly between seasons and hours of the day.“Costa Rica is unique because you can probably surf most beaches all the time,” Robbins said. “The beach we’re looking at in Costa Rica has a reputation for working at all tides, which allows you to surf all day. That means it’s a fair competition that doesn’t give disadvantages to surfers at different times of the day.”The Costa Rica Pro has been designated a 3,000-point event, meaning the winner will receive 3,000 points in the qualifying rankings. By the year’s end, the top 10 surfers in the qualifying standings will be eligible to compete in the World Championship Tour next season. Costa Rican stars Noe Mar McGonagle and Carlos “Cali” Muñoz have been mainstays in the qualifying series and currently rank 74th and 76th, respectively, after finishing within the top 40 last season.For Muñoz, who hails from Esterillos, the Costa Rica Pro will be a homecoming in which he should figure as one of the favorites to win. Naranjo said that all of the top Costa Rican surfers plan to compete in the October tournament, including Santa Teresa’s Anthony Fillingim and Leilani McGonagle, the younger sister of Noe Mar.Some 200 surfers could be expected to participate in the tour event, Robbins said. He echoed Naranjo’s words by saying that Costa Rica, with its big waves and gorgeous coasts, belongs among the most sought-after surf destinations worldwide.“It was really the first Latin American traveling destination for surfing,” Robbins said. “Other countries have kind of joined in on surf tourism, but it was Costa Rica that hit the mainstream early on.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more
