Microsoft hints at new OS in making

first_imgSan Francisco: Tech giant Microsoft has teased the attendees of the ongoing Computex event in Taipei with hints of a new, modern operating system (OS) in the making. Nick Parker, Vice President of Consumer and Device Sales took to the stage to outline the company’s future OS ambitions and while no official announcements were made about the much-rumoured Windows Lite, the company did discuss what’s in the pipeline, EnGadget reported on Wednesday. Also Read – Spotify rolls out Siri support, new Apple TV app Parker made continual references to “a modern OS” touching briefly on features such as cloud-connected experiences, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and multi-sense, which includes input methods such as pen, voice, touch and “even gaze”. Among other OS experiences mentioned were cognitive recognition services and features that “let users mirror their Android phone screen on their PC and use the PC mouse and keyboard to interact with phone apps and content using Wi-Fi or LTE”. It does seem that Microsoft is planning something different for its OS, beyond its previous attempts at light-weighting, the report said. However, the company did officially announce that it is testing a version of Windows 10 which would release by 2020.last_img read more

NS auditor general writes book on lessons learned from superhero grandmother

first_imgHALIFAX – Though he may be better known for combing through Nova Scotia’s finances, the province’s auditor general has decided to try his hand at writing something other than fiscal reports: a book about lessons he learned from his grandmother.Michael Pickup describes his nan as a superhero, a friend, and “everything and more than people traditionally think of a grandmother.”“My primary drive in writing the book was firstly to thank her and leave a tribute for her,” he said Sunday.Mary Ann Pickup of Cape Breton was the oldest of 12 children, the mother of five sons, and became a grandmother at 42 when Pickup was born to teenage parents.The recently released self-published “Nan-Made: How a Grandmother Made a Man” recounts 25 of her lessons Pickup has carried with him through his life, including the importance of living with integrity and taking the time to love oneself and others.While she was a career woman — returning to school in her 30s to pursue a career in health care, an uncommon feat for women at the time — Pickup said she always took the time to care for her family, imparting her wisdom to him as a child and well into his adulthood.She also worked as a union leader and community activist, a job from which she retired around the same time Pickup began working in public service — but not before teaching him a lesson that has stuck with him throughout his career.“Always remember, in public service, what you’re there for,” he said she told him 30 years ago. “You’re there to make the lives better of the people who use those services.”Each chapter recounts a memory of his grandmother and concentrates on the lesson he learned from her in that situation.Every Christmas, beginning when Pickup was a young child and up until his adulthood, he would help his grandparents put up their Christmas tree.Nana Pickup had an annual tradition: she and her husband would co-write a letter and store it in the box where they kept the first ornament they got together as a married couple. The next year, they would all read it and write a new one.His grandfather died suddenly around three decades ago, and the next year Pickup and his grandmother read the letter from the year before, grateful for the opportunity to hear from him one last time.The story inspired a chapter in Pickup’s book: “Ring a bell of gratitude.”“The letter was simple: it was thankful for the family that was there, the good times, the getting together, and the wish for health in the future,” he said.“So I’ll always have that in my mind.”Pickup said he spent all of his spare time writing the book over the past year, working against the clock so his grandmother, who fell ill in April, would get to read it.He included her throughout the book-writing process and showed her the finished copy in early July.“She said to me, ‘Michael, that was a lot of work,’” said Pickup.“And I said, ‘it was worth every bit of it, and it pales in comparison to all you did for everybody.’”She died two weeks later at the age of 94.Pickup — whose day job is quite demanding — said he might need a bit of a break, but hopes to write another book: this time, focusing on his mother’s side of the family.He describes his maternal grandmother as “the complete opposite” of Mary Ann Pickup, but still someone who taught him a lot about life.“Things like being independent, being strong, being hardworking, making decisions,” he said.last_img read more

Microsoft acquires Express Logic to push IoT dream

first_imgSan Francisco: Microsoft has acquired San Diego-based software company Express Logic, that makes software for Internet of Things (IoT) devices, to accelerate IoT development for billions of devices at scale. With this acquisition, Microsoft said late Thursday it will unlock access to billions of new connected endpoints, grow the number of devices that can seamlessly connect to its Azure Cloud and enable new intelligent capabilities. “I am incredibly excited to share we have acquired Express Logic, a leader in real time operating systems (RTOS) for IoT and edge devices powered by micro-controller units (MCUs),” said Sam George, Director, Azure IoT at Microsoft. Also Read – Swiggy now in 500 Indian cities, targets 100 more this year Manufacturers building products across categories — from low capacity sensors like light bulbs and temperature gauges to air conditioners, medical devices, and network appliances — leverage the size, safety and security benefits of Express Logic solutions to achieve faster time to market. “Even highly constrained devices (battery powered and having less than 64KB of flash memory) can use Express Logic solutions. Over 9 billion of these MCU-powered devices are built and deployed globally every year, many of which can benefit from Express Logic solutions,” said Microsoft. Microsoft is getting an established company with a proven product that can help it scale its Azure IoT business.

Stalled Greek debt talks send markets lower Dow suffered tripledigit loss

TORONTO — Stock markets on both sides of the Atlantic turned solidly lower Friday as renewed fears over a possible Greek debt default and its knock-on effects on the euro and the world economy sent traders scrambling for the exits.In Toronto, the S&P/TSX composite index closed down 89.73 points at 14,741.15, with energy and financial issues among the leading decliners as benchmark oil once again fell below US$60 a barrel.The loonie, meanwhile, was off 0.22 of a U.S. cent at 81.25 cents as the American greenback strengthened.The July crude contract shed 81 cents to US$59.96 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, while August gold lost early gains and was down $1.20 at US$1,179.20 an ounce.In New York, markets gave back a big chunk of their advance over the previous two sessions, with the Dow Jones industrial average suffering a triple-digit loss, down 140.53 points at 17,898.84. The Nasdaq index fell 31.41 points to 5,051.10, while the S&P 500 finished 14.75 points lower at 2,094.11.The decline, which followed similar setbacks on most European bourses, came after an unexpected decision late Thursday by the International Monetary Fund to walk out of the debt negotiations with Greece.The announcement by the IMF, which cited lack of progress in the talks, heightened concerns that Athens may default on its debts when its 240-billion-euro bailout expires June 30. That in turn could force it out of the euro.Greece said Friday that it would present new proposals over the weekend in an attempt to breathe life into stalled talks, but confirmation didn’t come until after the close of markets in Europe.The main index in Athens suffered the most, down 5.9 per cent, but other indexes were also sharply lower, with Germany’s DAX losing 1.2 per cent, the CAC-40 in France off 1.4 per cent and Britain’s FTSE 100 down one per cent.Ninh Chung, head of investment strategy at SVB Asset Management, said such sharp turns on the markets are likely to continue until Greece and its creditors reach a deal.“There had been optimism over Greece (over the past week) and now it seems like we’ve had a complete 180,” Chung told The Associated Press. In economic news, the U.S. Labor Department said that prices at the wholesale level rose 0.05 per cent in May, the most in almost three years. But outside of increases in volatile food and energy costs, core inflation remained moderate at 0.1 per cent.Next week, in addition to the Greek debt talks, traders will have a number important economic data to consider, beginning Monday with Statistics Canada’s monthly survey of manufacturing for April and U.S. industrial production for May.On Tuesday, investors will also be looking to the start of a two-day meeting of the U.S. Federal Reserve for clues as to the direction of interest rates. In Canada the major focus will be on Friday’s release of retail sales figures for April and the consumer price index for May. read more

UN conference adopts action plan to help Palestinians living under occupation

The Plan of Action commits civil society organizations to ending the Israeli occupation and to achieving the rights of self-determination and return of the Palestinian people. It acknowledges that the war against Lebanon and the continuing assault on Gaza have created new realities.The Plan notes that the conditions of Palestinians under occupation continue to deteriorate and Palestinian refugees continue to be denied their international rights, including their right of return. Conference participants commit to working in the coming months to mark the 40-year anniversary of the occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem. The Plan also commits them to expanding the global campaign of boycotts, divestment and sanctions to ever broader sectors of countries and regions, including an urgent campaign to end the sanctions against the democratically-elected Palestinian Authority.The Plan demands that governments urgently provide international protection to the Palestinian people living under occupation, including efforts to bring to justice those guilty of war crimes against them. Paul Badji, Chairman of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, which convened the International Conference, pledged in concluding remarks that the Committee would continue to hold periodic consultations with civil society representatives and would incorporate their recommendations into its work. read more

Why the Fed should delay a rate hike until 2016 and why

WASHINGTON – What’s the hurry?The International Monetary Fund on Thursday urged the Federal Reserve to put off raising short-term interest rates until next year because the U.S. economy still needs help.In its yearly check-up of the United States, the IMF predicted the American economy would grow just 2.5 per cent this year, down from its April forecast of 3.1 per cent. The downgrade reflects the economy’s stumbling start to the year: Gross domestic product fell the first three months of 2015, tripped up by harsh winter weather and the export-killing strength of the dollar.The IMF has no direct influence over U.S. economic policy. But the global lending agency is widely respected for its technical expertise on economics and finance.Since December 2008, the Fed has kept the short-term interest rate it controls near zero. Fed Chair Janet Yellen last month said she expects to begin raising rates this year. Many economists expect a rate hike at the Fed’s September meeting.A rate increase probably won’t have a big or immediate impact on most consumer loan rates.For one thing, the Fed is expected to ratchet up rates only gradually. For another, rates don’t move in lockstep. Mortgage rates, for instance, are tethered to long-term rates such as the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. Those rates can move up or down based on things, such as foreigners’ hankering for the safety of U.S. Treasurys, that have little to do with the Fed.Still, the Fed’s easy money policies have powered the American stock market to record levels, and investors hang onto Yellen’s every utterance.Here’s a look at the competing cases for the Fed’s next move.DON’T BE HASTYIMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said the risks of raising rates too soon — and wounding the economy before it’s reached full strength — outweigh the risks of waiting a bit too long and allowing inflation to creep up.“The economy would be better off with a rate hike in early 2016,” Lagarde said at a press conference.The Commerce Department reported last week that the U.S. economy shrank at an annual rate of 0.7 per cent from January through March. A widening trade deficit was largely to blame, reducing growth by 1.9 percentage points. The stronger dollar makes U.S. exports more expensive overseas and foreign imports cheaper in America.Inflation still is well short of the Fed’s 2 per cent target. The IMF doesn’t see it hitting that level until mid-2017. The inflation threat looks distant now: Consumer prices were lower in April than they’d been a year earlier, largely because of tumbling oil prices.The IMF calls for the Fed to hold off on a rate increase until “there are greater signs of wage or price inflation than are currently evident.”DO IT, ALREADYDespite the nasty first quarter, “we’re seeing more signs that the economy is gathering momentum and that a rate increase in September looks more appropriate,” said Bernard Baumohl, chief global economist at the Economic Outlook Group.The job market certainly looks healthy. Employers are adding jobs — nearly 3 million over the past year — at a rate not seen since the boom years of 1998 to 2000. Unemployment fell in April to a seven-year low 5.4 per cent.If the Fed waits too long, it could lose its grip on inflation — and its inflation-fighting credibility with financial markets.“If there’s a belief that the Federal Reserve is behind the curve in controlling inflation, more investors would lose confidence,” Baumohl said, arguing that inflation lags other signs of economic strength.Another worry: Super-low interest rates encourage investors to seek higher returns in riskier investments. That can drive up the prices of stocks, long-term bonds and other investments to dangerous levels.“The longer the Fed waits, the higher the price they are going to pay in terms of the market volatility that could occur including the potential of a crash in the stock market and the bond market,” said David Jones, an economist who has written several books on the Fed.___AP Economics Writer Martin Crutsinger contributed to this report.___Follow Paul Wiseman at https://twitter.com/PaulWisemanAP___This story has been corrected to show that the IMF is forecasting 2.5 per cent economic growth in the United States this year, not 2.4 per cent.

Rasmus Lauge Schmidt about Veszprem To win trophies and to save body

Rasmus Lauge SchmidtTelekom Veszprem The Danish playmaker Rasmus Lauge Schmidt explained reasons why he decided to move to Hungary in summer 2019 in interview for the official website of Telekom Veszprem:– Veszprém is a great club with big ambitions. They are going all in to win the Champion League. You do not have so long journeys in the Hungarian league, that way I can take a bit more care of my body. It is important because I had two big injuries in my career and that way I can take care of myself. The Bundesliga is hard and we have long travels. It is an advantage in Veszprém that I can prepare better and hopefully play handball as long as possible – said Rasmus, who pointed out talk with coach Ljubomir Vranjes, with whom he worked in Flensburg: – I talked to coach Vranjes of course. He told me good things about the club. With those ambitions that Veszprém has it is difficult to say no. It will be a big step for my family, to take a journey away from almost home, from Flensburg. We are ready and I am ready to give everything. I heard a lot about Veszprém, a lot of positive things. They have a great team. They can compete in the Champions League every year and I will do my best to bring titles back to Veszprém – said Rasmus Lauge Schmidt. ← Previous Story Rasmus Lauge Schmidt to Telekom Veszprem since 2019 Next Story → Klaus Gärtner to overtake HC Alpla Hard read more

Theres robbed cars burntout cars dead horses the bones of dead horses

first_img‘There’s robbed cars, burnt-out cars, dead horses … the bones of dead horses’ Campaigners say animals at Dunsink in Dublin are being frightened and injured by joyriders and quad bike riders. Source: TheJournal.ie/YouTubeSome of the horses kept at the site are well cared for, and Kenny said the charity regularly worked with owners in the area who are keen to see improvements made and the anti-social behaviour put to an end. Eugene Coppinger, a councillor for nearby Swords, said there were around 20 chipped and registered horses at the site and that the establishment of a community horse project several years back had been positive for the area. Other owners, Coppinger said, are more difficult to deal with – adding that with the increasing problem posed by stolen cars being raced and destroyed and quad bikes being scrambled, the area was becoming more dangerous for council workers to enter.Kenny said immediate action needed to be taken in the short-term to tackle the growing number of stallions. Volunteers were constantly finding pregnant mares at the site, she said, making control of breeding an urgent priority. “Basically there’s kids and adults going around with stallions and they are breeding constantly – seeing what can they get out of this next mare …  And then if it’s not the right colour or not the right size then that’s another horse or pony just shoved aside and let’s try again.  Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article VOLUNTEERS WHO TEND stray and neglected horses at a sprawling former landfill site in north Co Dublin say they’ve responded to an increased number of call-outs to tend injured animals, and have called on the local council to address problems caused by joyriding and quad bike scrambling there. Fencing put up to address anti-social behaviour at the site in Dunsink is repeatedly being torn down, My Lovely Horse Rescue co-founder Martina Kenny said.Injured and dead animals are being reported at the site and on adjoining, privately-owned fields, she said – adding that the problem is only going to get worse due to the increasing number of stallions roaming the area.  “There’s robbed cars, burnt-out cars, dead horses … the bones of dead horses,” Kenny said, going on to describe how a volunteer team had to arrange to put down two severely-injured foals and one mare in recent weeks. Last weekend, the charity posted the below video of cars being raced and burnt out at the site, while horses grazed amid the smoke.  Short URL https://jrnl.ie/4589008 49 Comments Share114 Tweet Email1 We’re constantly finding mares pregnant with last year’s foal and with a foal – so a yearling, a foal afoot and pregnant. That’s just wrong. The ongoing issues in Dunsink are symptomatic of the wider urban horse problem across Dublin, said Kenny. 90 abandoned horses were seized in the Finglas area in the past year at a cost of over €70,000, according to Dublin City Council figures published by the Dublin People last month.“There’s  a serous horse problem,” Kenny said. “From the airport right into the city it’s five miles and within that five miles there’s those 80 horses and then there’s another couple of hundred elsewhere in that small amount of space.“This is happening all over Ireland, where horses are just too easy to buy, too easy to come by free and breeding like there’s no tomorrow.”She said there was particular concern among volunteers in her group at this time of year. The summer is coming up and kids are already on Facebook and Instagram and whatever looking for a ‘cheap runaround for the summer’ – and that’s actually a horse they’re looking for, a pony so they can jockey it up and down.Problems at the Dunsink site had intensified in recent years, she said. “Every St Patrick’s Day there’s a huge big rally there with cars and quad bikes rallying around the place.The council put boulders up and locked off gates, but the day we were up there with the pony with the broken leg we saw some guys knocking down a big fence area so they could get through.A spokesperson for Fingal County Council said the local authority was working closely with the gardaí “who are actively working on the situation” at the site.“Fingal are continuing to work on restricting access to the site and impeding anti-social behaviour.” Apr 14th 2019, 10:01 PM Sunday 14 Apr 2019, 10:00 PM 87,601 Views By Daragh Brophylast_img read more

The best place to see Fallout 4 footage is on PornHub

first_imgIf you have ever viewed pornography on the internet in modern times, you’ve landed on PornHub, the popular tube-style site with a surprisingly amusing analytics department. Recently, the site has been attempting to branch out of porn aggregation and penetrate the world of interactive sex tech, but now, it seems, PornHub may have found its true calling: hosting leaked footage of wildly popular upcoming video games. If you’re into Bethesda’s Fallout 4, PornHub is currently the best place to view in-game footage.During Gamescom this year, Fallout 4 footage was shown behind closed doors, but as quickly as it was leaked to YouTube, it was removed. It made its way to a few file-sharing sites, and not only is that a somewhat tedious way to view shaky cam footage, but some of those hosts have been nuked. With the game just three months away from release, Fallout 4 frenzy is at a high, and the leaked footage cannot be contained. As of writing, PornHub is currently the best place to view the leaked video. Obviously, the page is not safe for work.Unfortunately, the stealth shaky cam quality of the footage means that you probably won’t find it to be the most enticing video hosted on PornHub, but at the moment, it’s still the best Fallout 4 footage on the internet. This is a little confusing, of course, because Fallout 4 is massively popular, and with the release just three months away, the internet should be flooded with both cinematics and in-game footage. Instead, the public’s best look yet at Bethesda’s upcoming post-nuclear opus is a low quality video leaked on a porn site. We assume Bethesda has nothing to hide about the game, but then why hide it when its release is so close? The mysteries of the Wasteland.last_img read more

Last Flight of Free Bird – The Crash that Ended the Original

first_imgLynyrd Skynyrd, one of the greatest Southern rock bands of all time, recently announced that it’s extending its farewell tour, with shows in 25 additional cities between late April and late September. The Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour started in the spring of 2018 and went on through the rest of the year, even before adding on this final leg, according to Taste of Country.One of the band’s members, Gary Rossington, remarked in a 2018 interview with Dan Rather that finishing a farewell tour is hard for the band, because they’ve played everywhere.Lynyrd Skynyrd, 1973That’s pretty accurate, too. The band was founded in 1964, and, over the decades, it’s been responsible for hits like Sweet Home Alabama, Free Bird, Simple Man, the iconic Free Bird, and many more, amassing an enormous fan base. The band had one gold, one platinum, and three double-platinum albums between 1964 and 1977.It hasn’t all been sunshine and roses for the group, however. In fact, the Lynyrd Skynyrd that’s currently taking its victory lap isn’t even really the same band that created all those remarkable early albums.The group was hit with a devastating blow when they were at the peak of their fame in 1977, when three of the members were killed in a plane crash, including then-front man, Ronnie Van Zant. That year, they released their fifth album, Street Survivors, and it had gone gold just days before the crash that brought an abrupt halt to their trajectory.After being reunited, Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Gary Rossington performing live with the Honkettes in Cardiff, 2010. Photo by Andrew King CC BY 2.0Rolling Stone reported that band members were apprehensive about boarding the plane that was supposed to take them from Greenville, South Carolina, to Baton Rouge, Louisiana on October 20, 1977.It was a 30-year-old Convair 240 and, obviously, not in the best condition. Two days prior, when they had been on the way to Greenville from a show in Florida, they had seen ten-foot flames shooting out of the right engine. Drummer Artimus Pyle likened it to something that would belong to the Clampett family.A Convair CV-240 similar to the accident aircraft. This one photographed in 2005. Photo by Logawi CC BY 2.5The plane landed safely in Greenville, but the band felt that it was in serious need of a replacement for the rest of the tour. They decided to replace the Convair with a Learjet after they got to Baton Rouge, but most of the group and its entourage still felt like that last flight in the old plane would be one too many. The band’s frontman, Van Zant, was unperturbed, however, remarking that when it’s your time, it’s your time. His words proved to be prophetic.Three hours later, the tired old plane fell from the sky over Gillsburg, Mississippi, claiming the lives of six of the people on board, including Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, and backup singer Cassie Gaines. The twenty passengers who survived the crash received a number of extensive injuries, many requiring hospitalization and significant rehabilitation afterward.Ronnie Van Zant, 1975A lot of the people surrounding the band believe that Van Zant had a premonition of his own end, especially since he had been heard to say more than once that he wouldn’t live to see 30, and that he’d die on the road. Van Zant’s widow was reported as saying that when she heard there had been a crash, she knew that Van Zant didn’t make it. Even Van Zant’s father had previously credited him with having second sight.A few months before the crash, Van Zant had written the song “That Smell”. It was meant as a warning after another member of the band had a severe car accident, but Van Zant said that he’d been having a creepy feeling that things were going against the band. It ended up being one of the last songs he wrote.Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1977The plane was undeniably a rattletrap, but Lynyrd Skynyrd had a track record of carrying on and behaving badly on flights, which meant that most private airlines wouldn’t work with them, leaving the band’s manager to do the best he could to find a plane, which was how they ended up with the geriatric Convair.Reportedly, Aerosmith had chartered the same plane earlier in the year, but their Chief of Flight Operations backed them out of it, having serious concerns over its airworthiness.Aerosmith performing with Johnny Depp in July 2014 in Mansfield, MA. Photo by bobnjeff CC BY 2.0According to Ranker, the first sign of trouble happened about two and a half hours into the flight, when fuel was seen spraying out of the right engine. The right engine quickly stopped working, making the plane jerk and stutter.The pilots had been aware of the fuel issue, and some have speculated that they were trying to transfer fuel from one engine to the other, accidentally jettisoning the remaining fuel, which caused the left engine to stop, as well.The pilots asked Houston air traffic control for the nearest airport, so they could make an emergency landing, but were told that they had passed the nearest one, and would have to turn the plane around. They were attempting the turn when the left engine stopped.The pilots couldn’t make it to the airport and were forced to try to bring the plane down in the swampland around Gillsburg. The plane hit the ground hard and came apart. The tail section broke off, followed by the cockpit and both wings. A few of the passengers were still able to move around after the crash, and one of them was Artimus Pyle.Pyle went looking for help and made his way to a nearby farm, which ultimately led to emergency responders heading toward the site.In 1978, the National Travel Safety Bureau ruled the probable cause of the accident was fuel exhaustion combined with a lack of attention from the crew, which made the engines stop, but the cause was never absolutely confirmed.Convair CV–240. Photo by YSSYguy CC BY-SA 3.0The plane didn’t have a black box, and the wreckage was too thorough to provide any real information about what actually happened. The NTSB also noted that the right engine was probably burning in “auto rich mode”, which would have made it go through fuel faster than the engine on the left.As a result of the crash, the band ultimately had to have a new album cover designed for Street Survivors, since the existing cover showed the band surrounded by flames. The record label pulled the unfortunate cover almost immediately, replacing it with a plain black cover.Watch 5 notorious facts about the infamous Hells Angels:The album went double platinum and reached number five on the Billboard charts, largely because of Van Zant’s disturbing and weirdly prescient song That Smell.One of the song’s lyrics said “the smell of death surrounds you”. Even though the song had been written about the previously mentioned car accident, it was still eerily apropos in light of the plane crash.Read another story from us: Researchers Discover Wreck that Could Finally be Amelia Earhart PlaneIn light of the crash and, especially, the deaths of Ronnie Van Zant and Steven Gaines, the group disbanded. In 1987, however, the surviving group members reformed Lynyrd Skynyrd, with Ronnie Van Zant’s brother, Johnny, stepping into the role his brother used to occupy, and they began performing again. While it’s unquestionably sad that they’re now on their farewell tour, the band has had an amazing run, despite the tragedy, and they have shown themselves to be “Street Survivors”.last_img read more

Australian marathon runner begins Spirit of India Run

first_imgImage by Kevin NguyenEarly Tuesday morning, Australia’s marathon running legend and former MP Pat Farmer started his ‘Spirit of India Run’ at Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu.Kanyakumari, formerly known as Cape Comorin, is the southernmost point of mainland India where the Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal meet.The start of the run on 26 January 2016 is a significant date for both countries, marking Australia Day and India’s Republic Day.Pat Farmer’s epic run along the length of India – from south to north through 10 states – will see him cover over 4,600km in 60 days.Australian Consul-General to South India Sean Kelly said Mr Farmer’s run from south to north through 10 states was another remarkable chapter in the growing Australia- India friendship.“This breathtaking journey will further strengthen the relationship between India and Australia,” he said.“I’m delighted that this run by an Australian known for his endurance abilities will commence from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu.”From Kanyakumari, Mr Farmer will run along the west coast of India passing through Kochi and Kasargod in Kerala and then through Karwar in coastal Karnataka before moving on to Goa and Maharashtra.Mr Farmer’s aim is to promote goodwill, friendship and trade between Australia and India.“I am very excited to be running the length of India, never before have I run in a country with such diversity and steeped in such cultural significance,” he said. “I am sure that this will prove to be the most incredible run that I have ever done.”Mr Farmer will raise funds for girls’ education in India through Mahindra’s Nanhi Kali initiative.“Young girls grow up to be the mothers of the next generation. They are the first educators to their children and I believe every girl should have access to basic literacy skills as education is the way to change their world and ours.”A film crew travelling with Mr Farmer will record the entire journey for a film about his marathon undertaking.“This will allow us to share the culture and diversity of India with Australians and the rest of the world,” Mr Kelly said.The Adani Group, which is sponsoring the run, said it was proud to partner with Mr Farmer to support girls’ education.“The Adani Group is committed to improve the quality of education through its programs for free education and other initiatives to improve the girl child enrolment ratio,” said Captain Sandeep Mehta, CEO of Adani Ports, Australia. “With Pat and Adani showcasing India’s diversity, we endeavour to bring both countries closer culturally.”Mahindra & Mahindra Executive Director Dr Pawan Goenka congratulated Pat Farmer on the start of his run.“The Mahindra Group is delighted to support Mr. Pat Farmer in his pioneering run across India with our Ssangyong Rexton and Mahindra Scorpio vehicles. Both embody the values of this Spirit of India run, including toughness and durability. We wish him the very best on this incredible adventure.”The former MP, who was Parliamentary Secretary for Education, Science and Training from 2004 to 2007, ran from the North to the South Pole in 2011-12 and raised more than A$100,000 for Red Cross International’s clean water programs.In 2014, he ran more than 1300km in two weeks through the Middle East to raise money and awareness for peace initiatives in the region.

first_img PARIS — Visitors were given one last chance to admire a 400-year-old painting attributed to Italian master Caravaggio or raise questions about the work that was found in an attic before it goes on the auction block in Toulouse.Paris auction house Drouot invited visitors Friday to see “Judith Beheading Holofernes” five years after it was found in a Toulouse home. It depicts the biblical heroine Judith beheading an Assyrian general. It’s thought to have been painted in Rome around 1604-05.Art expert Eric Turquin, who retrieved the painting two years ago, says it would be abnormal if everyone agreed.The painting was found by auctioneer Marc Labarbe behind a bedsheet, mattress and bedframe.Turquin said the face of Judith “is a signature” of the painter.Alex Turnbull, The Associated Press The Caravaggio’ painting entitled “Judith Beheading Holofernes”, is presented to the press, at the Drouot auction house in Paris, Friday, June 14, 2019. The Caravaggio’ “Judith Beheading Holofernes” lost in Amsterdam in 1617 has since been rediscovered in an attic in a Toulouse farmhouse in 2014. It will be put on auction in Toulouse at the end of June.

Cobalt still leasing one of its planes

first_imgDespite having had its operating license revoked, grounded Cobalt Air remains a going concern and has retained its air operator’s certificate (AOC), the Cyprus Mail has learned.In the meantime, the airline – which currently is not under administration or liquidation – has terminated the lease contracts on five of the six aircraft in its fleet.Still in force is the lease contract for one of the jets, sources familiar with the matter said.Presumably, Cobalt are still paying the lease on the one plane. Aircraft leases can go for anywhere from €200,000 to €500,000 per month.At any rate, by keeping one of the planes on its books, as it were, Cobalt is able to retain the AOC.In order to qualify for an AOC – issued by a national aviation authority – an aircraft operator is required to demonstrate that it has assets, personnel and a system in place to ensure the safety of its employees and the general public.By contrast, Cobalt’s operating license, which was revoked by the Air Transport Licensing Authority, relates to the commercial aspect of its operations.It is surmised that in the background Cobalt continues the search for new investors. It is for this reason the airline is keen to retain its AOC.Sources said that one reason the AOC may not have been suspended or revoked is because the move would be moot – since Cobalt is not flying anyway, there is no question of air safety.But another reason could be the morass of litigation surrounding the – to all intents and purposes – bankrupt airline.Earlier this week, it was confirmed that creditors of Cobalt had secured a series of court injunctions by which they were able to physically block the airlines’ planes – its assets – at Larnaca airport.Various creditors placed vehicles – including bowsers – around the aircraft.The creditors include fuel suppliers and companies providing maintenance services to Cobalt.Initially, for the first two to three days, the aircraft were stranded at the terminal’s jet bridges, interfering with the smooth operation of the airport.The Cyprus Mail is told that the planes were subsequently moved to a single location on the old tarmac, near the Cyprus Airways hangar.On October 17 Cobalt had decided on its own to ground its aircraft after it became apparent that it had run out of cash when its Chinese backers pulled the plug.A couple of days later, the lessors of the aircraft – which include Dublin-based Avolon and Celestial Aviation – came to the island with crews in a bid to secure the planes and fly them out.They left empty handed, as creditors had already filed injunctions against Cobalt.At the time when representatives of the leasing companies arrived in Cyprus, it is understood, all leasing contracts for the aircraft were still in force – that is, as far as civil aviation was concerned, the planes were registered in Cobalt’s name.It was not until around October 26 that Cobalt and the lessors came to a mutual agreement to terminate five of the six lease agreements.It’s not clear whether the leasing companies have since made a second attempt to secure their planes.Cobalt employed around 200 people. Its fleet consisted of two Airbus 319s (144 seats) and four Airbus 320s (156 seats). It flew to 23 destinations in 2018.You May LikeInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesNew Rule in Rowland Heights, California Leaves Drivers FumingInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
