Search ended for two missing fishermen after boat capsizes off PEI

first_imgTIGNISH, P.E.I. – A search off Prince Edward Island’s north shore has ended without finding any trace of two fishermen who disappeared after their boat capsized in heavy seas and rain.Maj. Mark Gough of Maritime Forces Atlantic says the 12-metre fishing boat, the Kyla Anne, got into trouble at about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.One man on board managed to swim ashore and call for help, prompting a sea, air and ground search.Gough says the search was ended Wednesday evening after more than 33 hours of searching by four vessels and three aircraft, covering approximately 1,200 square nautical miles.Gough says the search had gone on for approximately three times the survivability period for two people in the water without flotation devices.He says the incident has been handed over to the RCMP as a missing persons case.“The next of kin of the two fishermen have been notified of this decision,” Gough said. “Our thoughts are with them during this very difficult time.”last_img read more

Marlee Matlin Things You Cant Say To A Deaf Person

first_imgDeaf actress Marlee Matlin joined Jeff Probst on the Jeff Probst Show yesterday, and spoke openly about what it’s like to be both a deaf person and a celebrity, as well as some of the humorous challenges she’s experienced in everyday life, from dealing with airport security to being handed menus written in braille.Marlee Matlin on the Jeff Probst ShowMatlin also shed light on how deaf people see themselves and how hearing people can avoid insulting the deaf: “For deaf people, you can’t say deaf-mute… you can’t say deaf and dumb. You can’t say those things because we are people who happen to be deaf, who just happen not to hear. In the same way that you all live the same lives that you do. There’s a guy who’s the president of Gallaudet University who’s deaf who said, ‘we can do anything except hear’ and it’s as simple as that.”Hosted by five-time Emmy winner Jeff Probst, The Jeff Probst Show’s mission is to entertain and inspire viewers with stories about people living their lives to the fullest and saying “Yes” to life with every opportunity they get.

Ontario Tories ask police to investigate allegations Hydro One misled government

Ontario Tories ask police to investigate allegations Hydro One misled government TORONTO – Ontario’s opposition parties want a police investigation into allegations that Hydro One misled the government about the extent of billing problems created by a new computer system.The Progressive Conservatives asked the Ontario Provincial Police for a probe after Ombudsman Andre Marin complained he was misled and lied to by Hydro One officials as he investigated billing problems affecting about 100,000 customers.“As a result of the ombudsman’s report and remarks, I ask that you direct the Ontario Provincial Police to conduct an investigation into … the serious breaches of conduct committed by employees of Hydro One,” PC house leader Steve Clark said in a letter to OPP Commissioner Vince Hawkes. “No government organization or the employees who work for them should be above the law.”NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said she’d welcomed a police investigation if it gets to the bottom of what went on at Hydro One, the province’s largest utility which also serves as a local electricity distributor for 1.3 million customers.“If the OPP are in a situation where they believe this is something that warrants investigation, then I’m all for them investigating what’s happening here,” said Horwath.Hydro One CEO Carmine Marcello insisted he’s not concerned the Opposition asked police to investigate allegations the utility lied about its billing problems.“I’m not worried at all because we’ve done nothing wrong,” Marcello said in an interview. “I’m really disappointed that it’s come to this, but the reality is we’ve always co-operated with every single step of the ombudsman’s investigation.”Marin released a special report Monday on the 10,700 complaints from Hydro One customers about their billing problems, with a chapter called “obstructing the ombudsman,” an offence punishable by a fine or even a jail term.But the ombudsman rejected the idea of laying charges.“We’d have to build a new courthouse because there are a lot of people that you’d have to charge,” Marin said.Marcello said he’s concerned about the impact of the ombudsman’s allegations on Hydro One workers who face “unfounded comments that question the integrity of the organization, which I think is really sad.” A police investigation will prove Hydro One did not mislead the government, added Marcello“The truth will set you free, and if it this is what it takes, then so be it,” he said.The Conservatives also want the Speaker to find Hydro One in contempt of the legislature for misleading the ombudsman because he was investigating billing complaints raised by MPPs, who were acting on behalf of their constituents.The Ombudsman will lose oversight of Hydro One once the budget bill passes, approving the Liberals’ plans to sell 60 per cent of the utility to the private sector.The New Democrats, meanwhile, said the Liberals should get approval from Ontario voters before selling Hydro One. Premier Kathleen Wynne used “weasel words” in last year’s election campaign about provincial assets but never said she would sell Hydro One, said Horwath.“I am putting the premier on notice that the people of this province, the people who own Hydro One, are demanding a referendum,” she said.___Follow @CPnewsboy on Twitter by Keith Leslie, The Canadian Press Posted May 28, 2015 2:00 am MDT Last Updated May 28, 2015 at 11:51 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

The aura of Opening Day

For baseball enthusiasts, Opening Day means adults take off work, children are taken out of school, and college students skip class to witness the start of the MLB season.There’s nothing like it, especially in Cincinnati, where Opening Day is an unofficial holiday. There’s the Findlay Market Opening Day Parade, which mazes through the streets of the Queen City. There are the pregame meals at Skyline Chili, where you can eat the best chili around. And then there’s the actual game.It’s the only game of the year that it doesn’t bother me if the Reds lose. Okay, it doesn’t bother me as much. It’s also the only game where all the pregame shenanigans don’t bother me at all. How can you not get goose bumps watching a fly-over with four F-16s? Or be moved hearing the National Anthem sung by former Bengal tight end Ben Utecht?The excitement and pure bliss in the atmosphere is contagious. If there was this much optimism in the world every day, depression would cease to exist.That optimism also translates to the season itself. Whether you’re a Yankees fan or a Royals fan, it’s impossible to not have some glimmer of hope at the onset of the season. That brings me back to the Reds, who are trying to reverse a decade of futility.There are no excuses for the Reds this year. Their young guys took their licks last season. Right fielder Jay Bruce’s batting average hovered around the Mendoza line for much of year before breaking his wrist. First baseman Joey Votto battled depression and anxiety issues following the death of his father.The young starting pitching also struggled. Homer Bailey wasn’t consistent until the end of the season. Johnny Cueto was consistently inconsistent. Edinson Volquez blew out his elbow in June.But there is palpable hope for the Reds this year. Their rotation of Aaron Harang, Bronson Arroyo, Cueto, Bailey and Mike Leake is second-best in the division behind the St. Louis Cardinals.The strength of the team is the bullpen, which ranked third in the NL last year in ERA and is anchored by All-Star closer Francisco “Coco” Cordero. Setting up Cordero is hard-throwing right-hander Nick Masset and ageless left-handed Arthur Rhodes.The lineup is stocked with both youngsters and veterans. Alarmingly quick center fielder Drew Stubbs and rock-solid shortstop Orlando Cabrera will be at the top of the batting order. Votto, second baseman Brandon Phillips and third baseman Scott Rolen will be the main run-producers. Bruce, catcher Ramon Hernandez and a platoon of speed demon Chris Dickerson and Shrek look-alike Jonny Gomes will round out the lineup in left field.Votto is on the cusp of being a perennial 30-home run, 100-plus RBI player. Bruce and Phillips both should have 25 home runs and 90 or more RBIs. Cabrera, Rolen and Hernandez are veteran hitters with long histories of being line-drive machines and clutch-run producers. Add in the speed of Stubbs and Dickerson, and the Reds should end their run-scoring struggles.But as always, there are “ifs” with the Reds. For baseball’s oldest franchise, injuries derailed the team last season. The opening day lineup only played 10 games together. It very well could happen again this year, as one of the team’s glaring weaknesses is lack of depth.However, for the first time in years, roster competition is fierce. The Reds’ farm system depth is rapidly improving under general manager Walt Jocketty, who dipped into the past to recruit former Reds greats such as Eric Davis, Barry Larkin and Joe Morgan to come to spring training as guest instructors.The team also has a handful of wild cards. Volquez should be back by August at the latest and could contribute during a potential stretch run. Youngsters Juan Francisco and Yonder Alonso look like the next David Ortiz and Pablo Sandoval. The Reds also have Travis Wood, who was the MLB.com Double-A Starting Pitcher of the Year, and Leake, who went 16-1 with a 1.17 ERA last season for Arizona State, waiting in the fold.And of course, no mention of Reds’ prospects is complete without left-handed Cuban defector Aroldis Chapman. There’s no precedent for what Chapman can mean to the Reds. Armed with a fastball topping out in triple digits, a Randy Johnson slider and a rapidly developing changeup, Chapman has the ability to be a dominant No. 1 starter. The Reds are doing the right thing by shipping him to the minors to get him some seasoning and to adjust to the American way of life.But my favorite thing about Chapman has nothing to do with his potential. It’s that he’s going to be essentially immune from pressure. Before he defected, Chapman was pitching in Cuba … for food. If he did not pitch well, he couldn’t feed his family. When he’s clinging to a one-run lead in the bottom of the seventh inning and staring down Albert Pujols with the bases loaded and the division lead on the line, Chapman won’t back down. He’ll accept the challenge.Which is what Chapman and the rest of the Reds need to do: embrace the pressure, revel in it and deliver a winning season to a city that’s dying for an October pennant race. Despite an Opening Day loss, there remains hope. read more

Diamonds are a wear parts best friend

first_imgsp3 Diamond Technologies, a leading supplier of diamond film products, equipment and services, has expanded its chemical vapour deposition (CVD) capability to provide diamond coatings ranging from super smooth nanocrystalline with a surface roughness of less than 10 nm to controlled microcrystalline films with a surface roughness greater than 10 um. Also, sp3’s Model 650 CVD diamond hot filament reactors, which are used to apply the coatings, are available for companies interested in manufacturing diamond coated products in-house. sp3’s super smooth diamond is ideal for wear surfaces such as seals or bearings. CVD diamond films provide an excellent coating for harsh or demanding environments where the hardness of diamond, its extremely low coefficient of friction, its abrasion resistance and its excellent thermal properties surpass all other alternatives.“sp3 has a unique offering in this market because we manufacture the CVD diamond deposition reactors required for these applications,” said Dwain Aidala, President and COO of sp3 Diamond Technologies. “This allows customers to take advantage of our coating services, or to purchase a reactor system and add super smooth or controlled roughness diamond coatings as a process step within their own facility. The expertise that we deliver with a reactor means that customers typically receive existing process recipes that enable them to achieve the CVD diamond film characteristics required for their target application.”Super smooth diamond, as manufactured on sp3’s CVD diamond reactors, is an ideal material for a wide variety of wear surfaces with demanding materials requirements, such as contacting and non-contacting coated seals and water systems. Diamond-coated surfaces are better able to withstand the harsh chemical environments typical for both types of applications, whether it is abrasive pumping or hot water, where lubrication is poor, or in corrosive slurry environments. In these environments, diamond’s hardness and chemical resistance combine to significantly extend the useful part life.The ability to precisely control diamond growth and film properties in the sp3 CVD diamond deposition process enables a very controlled grain size and orientation on a substrate such as silicon carbide (SiC), thus lowering the amount of heat generated between sliding surfaces, and further extending part life while reducing failures. Such films can also be deposited on a wide variety of other substrates, including cemented carbide, silicon, tungsten carbide, and graphite.sp3 Diamond Technologies offers deposition consulting services to companies worldwide across a broad spectrum of industries.last_img read more

Chance to whiten black money in budget unconstitutional TIB

first_imgTIBThe Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) criticised the proposed budget for keeping windows to whiten black money, calling it “unconstitutional”, reports UNB.”Buying flats, land procurement and investing in economic zones and high-tech parks with black money is like legalising corruption for the next five years,” TIB executive director Iftekharuzzaman said in a statement on Friday.TIB noted that the move contradicts the zero-tolerance policy against corruption declared by the prime minister.Iftekharuzzaman dubbed the initiative “unconstitutional, unethical, and discriminatory”.Finance minister AHM Mustafa Kamal placed a Tk 5231.90 billion budget, the biggest-ever in Bangladesh’s history, for the next fiscal on Thursday.TIB, however, appreciated the budget for expanding area of social security.But Iftekharuzzaman pointed out that it lacks specific initiative to reform the bank sector which is already in a grave crisis due to record loan defaulters, irregularity and corruption.last_img read more

Facebook Invests In Renewables With Texas Solar Project

first_imgBen Margot/AP/FileThis July 16, 2013, file photo, shows a sign at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif. The Boston-based renewable energy developer Longroad Energy announced in May 2019 that Facebook is building a massive new solar farm in West Texas.Facebook is building a massive solar farm in West Texas that’s believed to be one of the largest solar projects in the nation and the social media giant’s first direct investment in renewable energy.Boston-based renewable energy developer Longroad Energy recently announced it was partnering with Facebook on the $416 million project, just as Facebook is finishing construction of a data center near Albuquerque.The Prospero Solar project just north of Odessa will have a capacity of 379 megawatts. That’s enough to power around 72,000 homes based on the national average, the Solar Energy Industries Association said.The project goes beyond Facebook’s goal to use renewable energy to power its data centers, where the social media giant stores photos, videos and other information that people post on the platform.Prospero Solar is expected to be completed next year and will take up around 7 square miles (18 square kilometers) — more than five times the size of Central Park in New York City.California-based Facebook will be the sole tax equity investor, Longroad said.Ben Inskeep, a research analyst for EQ Research, a North Carolina-based renewable energy consulting firm, said it makes sense for Facebook to invest in solar power because renewable energy is becoming more affordable and its data centers have huge operating costs.“West Texas has some of the best solar resources in the nation,” Inskeep said. “So it’s not about saying you support renewable energy. It makes good business sense.”Shell Energy North America and Facebook will share the power generated by the solar farm.“Facebook is excited to be one of the first companies to use a direct investment to meet our renewable energy goals,” company energy strategy manager Peter Freed said in a statement.CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced in April that Facebook was building six new solar projects to support its data centers. They house tens of thousands of computer servers, which are linked to the outside world through fiber-optic cables.“Our data centers are already some of the most energy efficient in the world, and last year we set a goal for all our data centers and offices to use 100% renewable energy by 2020,” Zuckerberg wrote on his personal Facebook page. “These new solar projects will help us reach that goal.”It comes as Facebook battles New Mexico regulators over a new transmission line to its data center in the small town of Los Lunas.State regulators last month declined to reconsider their decision for the largest utility to bill Facebook $39 million for the transmission line. They said ratepayers could not be charged for the project because the line wouldn’t benefit retail customers.The Public Service Co. of New Mexico said it’s disappointed by the decision and is reviewing options for how to proceed.The New Mexico data center is one of seven such sites for Facebook, and includes six buildings for data storage. It is situated on a patch of desert at the edge of Los Lunas, which lies just beyond the edge of New Mexico’s largest metropolitan area and along the Rio Grande.Each of the data center’s buildings is roughly the size of four football fields and has several “data halls,” or darkened, vast rooms where Facebook plans to store dozens of rows of towering servers. Two of those halls are now in operation, while construction that began more than two years ago will continue until 2023, the company said. Sharelast_img read more

BioShock Infinite steampunk case mod opens dimensional portal to your heart

first_imgYou finished BioShock Infinite, and after sifting through the wealth of very complex and contradictory feelings the game left you with, you decided to immortalize Irrational’s latest epic tale on the very platform on which you played it — the PC. Unfortunately, just like deciphering the impact of the game’s ending, you don’t know where to begin. Thankfully, modder FlashGordon has created a very detailed, extremely intricate PC case mod for the game that you can use as inspiration for your design.The computer began its life as something of a bench case — the AeroCool StrikeX-Air PC Open Case — in order to get its irregular shape. FlashGordon then made individual decorative and usable components and slapped them all over the case. From staple steampunk items like superfluous dials and knobs, to fancy lights and portholes providing a view of the machine’s internal organs, the case has everything you’d expect from a steampunk motif — not counting some goggles and a huge brown top hat.The rig also has a very intricately detailed steampunk keyboard, as well as a matching monitor. The case mod isn’t specifically decorated with BioShock Infinite paraphernalia, and you most likely wouldn’t be able to tell the design is in honor of the game if you didn’t look at the accompanying BioShock Infinite wallpaper loaded on the desktop. However, the mod is certainly in the spirit of the game, aside from the fact that it isn’t floating in the sky or ripping holes through the multiverse.As for the computer’s guts, it contains a Core i7 3930K CPU, two GTX680 video cards with 2GB of GDDR5 memory, a 1200W power supply, a (surprisingly meager) 120GB SSD teaming up with a (less meager) 1TB HDD, 16GB of RAM, and an ocean of water cooling. So, yes, it is able to play Infinite on Ultra.For those craving detail, FlashGordon documented the process every step of the way, with an album containing a little under 700 photos of the rig.

Vivaldi 14 Find out what is new

first_imgVivaldi 1.4: Find out what is new by Martin Brinkmann on September 08, 2016 in Internet – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 16 commentsVivaldi 1.4 is the newest version of the up and coming web browser that aims to conquer the browser world by improving the user experience through customization features.It has just been a couple of months since Vivaldi released the first stable version of the web browser to the public.Much has changed since then, and versions 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 all added new functionality to the browser.Vivaldi 1.3 was released just a month ago, and it is clear right away that you should not expect a truckload of new features in Vivaldi 1.4.While that is the case, it does ship with Theme Scheduling, a feature that I reviewed just a couple of days ago.Vivaldi 1.4I don’t want to rehash the whole article and suggest you read it for a detailed look at the feature. Theme scheduling allows you to switch between different themes automatically based on the time of day.You may add as many “switches” as you like, and the Vivaldi browser will switch between them automatically from that moment on.It is for instance possible to set a darker theme for night time and early morning hours, and a lighter theme for the rest of the day.While some users may not find the feature overly useful, it is completely optional and needs to be enabled on vivaldi://settings/themes/ before it becomes available. If you don’t need it, ignore it and all is good.That’s one of the strengths of Vivaldi, giving users choice instead of pushing them towards the direction the designers consider optimal.Theme Scheduling is without doubt the primary new feature of Vivaldi 1.4.Web PanelsWeb Panels allow you to pin any website to Vivaldi’s panel listing on the left. You may then open those sites in a sidebar-like area in the browser.Since sites may require different widths, Vivaldi 1.4 supports different widths for sites displayed as web panels. Just right-click on any web panel to select the “separate width” option.The context menu holds other features of interest, for instance the ability to load the mobile version of a site if available (or the desktop version if the mobile version is shown).Another new, minor new feature, is that you may middle-click on the trash can icon to open the last closed tab right away. The trash lists recently closed tabs in the Vivaldi interface, and the middle-click option simply speeds up the restoration of the last closed tab. While I prefer Ctrl-Shift-T for that, others may prefer to use the mouse instead.You can read the official release announcement on the official Vivaldi blog.SummaryArticle NameVivaldi 1.4: Find out what is newDescriptionVivaldi 1.4 is the newest version of the up and coming web browser that aims to conquer the browser world by improving the user experience through customization features.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 9 Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Arizona Cardinals safety Budda Baker (36) tackles Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Deante Burton (87) during the second half of an NFL football game, Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017, in Atlanta. (AP Photo/John Bazemore) Top Stories center_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The offseason for the Arizona Cardinals has already been eventful with the hiring of a new head coach and the search for a new starting quarterback.Former Panthers Defensive Coordinator Steve Wilks was hired to replace now-retired Bruce Arians, leaving the quarterback role as one of the only remaining vacancies ahead of the 2018 NFL Draft.It’s a peculiar situation for the Cardinals to be in, but could they have prepared for this last season? “The Cardinals choosing not to take a quarterback in any round of last year’s draft was pure negligence,” NFL.com’s Jeremy Bergman wrote Thursday. “In the first round they were one pick away from Deshaun Watson, and three selections back from Patrick Mahomes.”Bergman compiled a list of each NFL team’s rookie class from 2017, grading them based on performance as well as addressing each team’s needs for the upcoming draft.Only three teams — the Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints and the San Francisco 49ers — received a grade of ‘A’ or higher, with 11 receiving a grade of ‘C’ or lower, including a ‘C-‘ grade for the Cardinals.The Cardinals drafted linebacker Haason Reddick last year with the 13th overall pick. The Temple product shined in his first three games at inside linebacker. But after defensive end Markus Golden suffered a torn ACL against the 49ers in October, Reddick took his place.The position change caused Reddick to struggle, something Bergman said the Cardinals should consider next season.“Jury’s out on Reddick, who needs more snaps at one position next season,” he said. Bergman did, however, credit the Cardinals for drafting safety Budda Baker. After safety Tyvon Branch injured his knee against the Seahwaks, Baker took over and started the last seven games for the Cardinals.Baker recorded 58 solo tackles in 2017, enough to allow the rookie to lead his position in Pro Bowl voting.As expected, Bergman labeled the quarterback position as the Cardinals’ main focus area for the draft or free agency. Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has been linked to the Cardinals, though he may demand a contract that is out of Arizona’s price range.However, the Cardinals have numerous options, with other veteran quarterbacks set to become free agents as well as the upcoming NFL Draft that is riddled with quarterback talent.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) We might be underrating the Cardinals. Sam Bradford is a good quarterback when healthy. Josh Rosen gives them hope for the future. Mike Glennon isn’t a starter but might be the best QB3 in the league.Related LinksAn early look at the Cardinals’ top position battlesFormer Cardinals coach Bruce Arians joins CBS Sports as game analystCardinals’ Christian Kirk talks Snoop Dogg, liver shakes and Kevin SumlinRuiz’s rankings consider the talent of the current starter and the backup options. They also take into account the future outlook.Arizona ticks all those boxes, even if Bradford’s injury history may cause some pause.Bradford is two years removed from his best NFL season in which he played 15 games for the Minnesota Vikings and completed a league-best 71.6 percent of his passes for 3,877 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions.Though his knee issues that zapped all but two games last year could be a concern, it’s not wild to believe that Glennon, who early in his career had success with Tampa Bay, and Rosen, Arizona’s first-round draft pick, could compete for the backup spot.Rosen is obviously the quarterback of the future, and his talent level is unquestioned — his personality and on-field hardiness remain concerns.Ruiz’s list is led by the Green Bay Packers, who behind star Aaron Rodgers just acquired young signal-caller DeShone Kizer after his rookie year with the Cleveland Browns. At the bottom are the Denver Broncos, who behind recently-signed starter Case Keenum will be relying on Paxton Lynch and Chad Kelly.
