Manitoba FN community mourning after youth killed in crash

first_imgBy Meagan Fiddler and Tiar Wilson APTN National News WINNIPEG–A Northern First Nation Manitoba community is reeling after a horrific crash near The Pas, Man., killed at least five people early Friday morning.RCMP are still trying to identify the deceased, but it’s believed that at least four of the victims were between 18 and 23 years of age.The wife of well-known Manitoba musician Errol Ranville is also believed to have died in the crash. Ranville is reportedly the only survivor and was flown to hospital in Winnipeg where he is believed to be in serious condition.Four of the victims were in one of the cars involved in the 4:30 a.m. head-on collision. Police said a 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier and a 2007 Jeep Wrangler crashed and one vehicle burst into flames on Hwy. 10, about three kilometres south of The Pas.“There is a significant amount of fire damage. At this point we can’t ascertain the identities of the four people in the Cavalier,” said RCMP Const. Miles Hiebert.Many of the victims are from or connected to Opaskwayak Cree Nation, a small community near The Pas where everyone knows everyone, said Chief Mike Constant.“I think the community has woken up to a tragedy that no parent or no community wants to hear,” said Constant. “It’s tough to not only lose a loved one but a young person in your community. It’s tougher to absorb or sort of comprehend the nature of the tragedy, but those kind of elements are out of our control. It’s in the creator’s hands.”The community’s school is closed and crisis workers have been called.Back in Winnipeg, Ranville’s friends in the music industry where also finding it tough to digest the news.Ranville fronts the C-Weed band and he had performed in APTN’s studios this past June.“I admire the way that he could write and sing. My thoughts and prayers are with Errol that he can pull through,” said Ray St. Germain.last_img read more

Womens gymnastics Ohio State tops No 11 Michigan Washington and Kent State

The Ohio State women’s gymnastics team snagged another win with an overall score of 195.8 after their home quad-meet against No. 11 Michigan, Washington and Kent State on Saturday evening.The team started strong in their first rotation event on vault, scoring a total of 49.12. Junior Alexis Mattern received the highest score and career best of 9.9, tying for first on vault with Michigan’s Olivia Karas.“Person after person, and being the sixth person up on vault, it’s, it’s kind of tough,” Mattern said. “So you have to wait and watch your teammates, and you just wait in the wings until it’s your turn. And for me to do the vault that I’ve been training all week, right in the moment, when it really counted, was just really great to start that off.”The Buckeyes gained the lead after the first rotation and continued with momentum to the second event on uneven bars. Sophomore Kaitlyn Hofland placed second overall with a score of 9.85.After the third rotation on beam, OSU still held the lead before entering their fourth and final event on floor.“As much as we try not to focus too much on the scores, we could see that we were still in the lead going into the last event,” Hofland said. “Floor is a strong event for us. It’s a fun event. It’s an awesome event and we knew we all could do it.With the team placing first in their Saturday meet and Mattern finishing third in the all-around with a 39.125, Ohio State received their first conference win against Michigan.“To beat them at home when all the odds were really stacked against us just means so much more, especially because we worked so hard,” said Mattern.After riding a wave from their second victory, the team said it won’t take the win for granted. A few minor performance issues were seen during the meet, such as two girls receiving a one-tenth point deduction for stepping out of bounds on their floor routines.Although coach Carey Fagan took these performances as something to improve upon in preparation for their next meet on Jan. 28 against Iowa, she holds a strong positive outlook for the coming meet and the season as a whole.“Starting off in the conference 1-0 is going to be huge for my team, and beating — Michigan is a great team,” said Fagan. “They’re historically strongest in the conference, so I think the confidence that my team will get knowing that they compete with the best will really set us up for the rest of the season.” read more

Chrome was the worlds most used browser on March 16

first_imgIt may only have been for a single day, but according to StatCounter Google Chrome finally managed to surpass Internet Explorer to become the world’s most used web browser.On Sunday, March 16th, Chrome temporarily slid ahead of IE with a share of just over 32%. Weekends have historically seen a downturn in IE usage. As people wind up their work week and spend more time on their home computers, they’re more likely to use an alternative browser. IE still maintains a dominant position in corporate environments, but that too has begun to change.Over the past year, Chrome has steadily climbed while IE continues to fall. Initially folks thought that Google’s rapid rise was being fueled by Firefox defections, but Mozilla has only seen a drop of about 5% — while IE is down more than 10%. A second chart from StatCounter tells the story: those IE peaks and plateaus are clearly on a downward trend.It’s important to note that StatCounter doesn’t correct its usage figures to account for one detail that could skew the numbers slightly in Google’s favor. Speculative pre-rendering (which arrived  in the Omnibox in Chrome 17) and Instant Pages support (which appeared in Chrome 13) both cause Chrome to send additional traffic to web servers that may never result in an actual visit from a user.That prompted Net Applications to revise the way they were tallying traffic from Chrome, though the difference it makes isn’t so great that it makes what StatCounter reports look like a fluke. Chrome is clearly headed to the top, it’s just a question of when it will stay there for more than one day.More at The Registerlast_img read more

Léolien offshore un risque pour lenvironnement

first_imgL’éolien offshore : un risque pour l’environnement ?En ces temps de crise écologique, le développement des énergies renouvelables connait un réel essor mais certaines d’entre elles font débat : c’est le cas de l’éolien offshore. 6 GW d’éoliennes devraient être implantées sur le littoral français d’ici à 2020 mais le projet soulève des questions de pollution visuelle et de conséquences sur le tourisme.L’éolien rencontre aujourd’hui de plus en plus de succès. En quête d’un développement des énergies renouvelables, plusieurs pays ont ainsi d’ores et déjà prévu d’installer des parcs  éoliens dans des régions adéquates. Mais ces projets ne sont pas du goût de tous. En effet, beaucoup s’attachent à penser que cette énergie dégrade l’environnement et qu’elle pourrait porter un coup au tourisme sur les côtes françaises, évoquant notamment des questions de pollution visuelle. En juin dernier, la puissance du parc éolien français atteignait près de 6.253 mégawatts, avec 3.800 éoliennes terrestres en service. D’ici peu, 600 éoliennes seront installées au large des côtes de la Manche et de l’Atlantique, pour un montant estimé par l’Etat de près de 10 milliards d’euros. Un développement intensif du parc éolien françaisLa Fédération environnement durable a pourtant jugé que les retombées annoncées par le Gouvernement ne sont qu’un “mensonge d’Etat”. “L’ensemble du programme en mer dépassera les 20 milliards d’investissement pris sur la facture des ménages”, estime la Fédération, pour qui l’électricité coûtera alors plus chère. Un risque tandis que “trois millions de personnes sont déjà en situation énergétique précaire”, selon des travaux qu’elle a elle-même menés.Par ailleurs, un rapport sur l’énergie éolienne, publié la semaine dernière par le think tank anglais Civitas, révèle l’inefficacité de ces installations et leur impact sur l’environnement. D’après ce document, les éoliennes augmenteraient les émissions de gaz à effet de serre issues des centrales à gaz qui produit l’électricité en l’absence de vent. Autrement dit, les centrales à gaz les plus efficaces émettraient désormais moins de CO2 en fonctionnant seules que lorsque l’éolien, rapporte le site Actu Environnement.  L’éolien : une dégradation visuelle ou une dégradation tout court ?Si l’étude a suscité de nombreuses critiques, venant notamment des scientifiques européens, son verdict est sans appel : “S’il n’y avait pas les objectifs fixés par la Directive des énergies renouvelables, l’éolien ne serait même pas recevable comme moyen rentable de production d’électricité ou de réduction des émissions”. La rédactrice du rapport, Ruth Lea, une économiste britannique, conseille ainsi l’abandon définitif du parc éolien offshore.À lire aussiLa Méditerranée est officiellement la mer la plus polluée par le plastiqueMais les risques pour l’environnement ne s’arrêteraient pas là. Les fonds marins seraient également menacés par ce genre d’installations et la pêche s’en ressentirait directement. “Le développement des éoliennes offshore représente un risque écologique aigu, compte tenu à la fois du bétonnage, de l’importance du besoin en énergie électrique qu’il réclame et des implantations sur les voies navigables retenues”, selon Thierry Grégoire, le président national des saisonniers de l’Union des métiers et des industries de l’hôtellerie (Umih).Pour en savoir plus, retrouvez le dossier de Maxisciences sur l’éolien offshore Le 17 janvier 2012 à 10:51 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Marcelino confirms Chicharito wants to play for Valencia

first_imgAs the transfer market maintains its course at the end of January, manager Marcelino has confirmed that ‘Chicharito’ is keen in a Valencia move.With striker Michy Batshuayi not living up to the expectations for Valencia, it was only natural that manager Marcelino started looking for a proper replacement such as West Ham United’s ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez.The Mexican player has a sweet memory at Mestalla during his Manchester United days, he scored the winning goal against Valencia and left a very good impression with all the Spanish fans who right now would love to have him come back to La Liga.The striker already knows what it is to play in Spanish football after he played a season on loan for Real Madrid, he became very important for Los Blancos when Carlo Ancelotti was still the manager of the club but fell short as the squad only made it to Champions League semifinals and didn’t win La Liga trophy.Hernandez still left a great image amongst all Spanish football fans, they like the idea of having him back scoring goals for Valencia and the club’s manager just revealed that the player is keen on making the shock move from English football.But there are a set of problems that prevent him from coming.Chicharito se atascaLINK PODCAST ➡️ https://t.co/iwmJfN0wGK🦇 Garay, Batshuayi y Chicharito, los tres nombres del mercado🗣RP Marcelino y entrenamiento Valencia🐸 Defensa en cuadro para el Pizjuán 👥Tertulia con @DavidFerriis8, @PardoD_, @DCampoy10 y @sanchis14 pic.twitter.com/cGIDNJInQ8— Radio Marca Valencia (@RMValencia) January 25, 2019The first situation that ‘Chicharito’ will encounter is the fact that manager Manuel Pellegrini is still not sure about Marko Arnautovic’s future, if the forward leave then Hernandez won’t have a chance to leave the Hammers with virtually no strikers.The second problem is the deal that West Ham United wants for the Mexican, they are keen on him to leave but only for a definitive transfer and not a loan like Valencia would like.But as the clock keeps ticking for Valencia and ‘Chicharito’ himself, the Spanish club is quickly running out of options and they obviously don’t want to only keep Michy Batshuayi after becoming one of the club’s biggest flops in recent memory.Marcelino is open to the possibility of selling the Belgian striker, but he also knows that striking a good deal for him will be quite difficult as he currently belongs to Chelsea and the Blues don’t want anything to do with him.Marcelino, ValenciaReport: Marcelino speaks out after Valencia sacking George Patchias – September 13, 2019 Marcelino says he knows why he was sacked by Valencia.Speaking for the first time since he was dismissed by Valencia, after only three games…Valencia is in a tight spot right now and this sets back Hernandez’s chances to return to the Spanish La Liga.Este día Marcelino García Toral, entrenador del Valencia, confirma que si están buscando los servicios del mexicano.“Chicharito quiere venir, pero es complicado, West Ham solo contempla la venta”.Medios en Inglaterra informan que Valencia puso 8 millones. pic.twitter.com/4PO1yi6gDz— Fútbol al Momento (@2Futalmomento) January 25, 2019During a press conference this Friday ahead of Valencia’s Derby against Villarreal at Mestalla, manager Marcelino spoke about the Mexican striker and two other players who may or may not leave the club during the winter.“‘Chicharito’ is an option for us because he doesn’t really play much at his club and he is keen on coming to play for Valencia, but we have a complicated situation on our hands,” said Marcelino on Marca.“Keeping three strikers is not something we are looking for. The little information I get, suggests that West Ham United only contemplates selling ‘Chicharito’.”“As far as other transfers, I don’t have the certainty that Ezequiel Garay will leave the club in any case. I don’t see my self in any scenario that doesn’t include Valencia keeping Garay until June 30.”“With Batshuayi, I think that nothing is impossible. I can’t discard any possibility. Batshuayi staying at the club is very unlikely.”“If it was up to Valencia and the player he would be gone by now, but there is a third involved club who has his rights. I think that this situation will resolve itself in the finals days of the transfer window,” he concluded.“Chicharito quiere venir al Valencia” lo confirma Marcelino García Toral técnico del equipo Che, en rueda de prensa. pic.twitter.com/VChJcr52gB— Fernando Cevallos (@FerCevallosF) January 25, 2019Would you like ‘Chicharito’ to complete his transfer from West Ham United to Valencia?

YK Delta villages receive federal energy grants

first_imgKwigillingok is one of four Alaska Native villages receiving federal funds to improve energy efficiency this year. (2017 LKSD Film Academy Students)Alaska Native villages in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta are getting Federal funds to help improve energy efficiency. The effort is also a way for villages to start reducing energy costs.Listen nowAt the end of May, the federal Office of Indian Energy Policy and Programs announced that four Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta villages were among the 19 American Indian tribes and Alaskan Native villages receiving initial energy planning grants.Akiachak, Atmautluak, Kwigillingok and Aniak will receive around $130,000 each, with a cost share amount of around $15,000 – although negotiations have yet to be finalized.Each village plans to “establish baseline energy use in tribal community buildings to help to set energy efficiency improvement goals as well as provide a benchmark for evaluating future efforts to reduce and stabilize energy costs.”“It’s exciting, I mean, you know, these projects, they’ll impact people everyday. You know, it’s rewarding and I think the benefits, especially to some of the rural communities in Alaska, are huge,” Lizana Pierce said. She’s with the Department of Energy, Office of Indian Energy, and has been working with tribes on energy matters for the past 18 years.Pierce said that they’ve asked villages for supplemental data before finalizing negotiations.“We have environmental questionnaires that need to be completed; we do need to negotiate the scopes and the budget of that,” Pierce said. “It’s not necessarily hiring technical engineers and all that. It’s just additional information that was not included in the original application.”The plan is to finish agreements by September 30, the end of the federal department’s fiscal year, says Pierce. At that point, the villages can proceed with their projects.As a possible next step, she points to what the Alaska Village Electric Cooperative and the Bethel Native Corporation have teamed up to do – apply for and receive a federal Indian Energy Policy grant for energy efficient hardware.Pierce said that particular project is the installation of a 900 kW wind turbine that will serve Bethel, Oscarville and Napakiak. She said based on their proposal, it will serve 6,600 rural Alaskans at an estimated savings of over a million dollars a year.last_img read more

Geek Pick Transformers Generations Studio Series 18 Bumblebee

first_imgStay on target Geek Pick: Ikea Sonos Symfonisk Is A WiFi Bookshelf SpeakerGeek Pick: Fi Smart Dog Collar Sniffs Out Your Pet I have a confession. I haven’t watched the last three Transformers movies. I might see Bumblebee, though, because it looks like they’re using sick G1 designs instead of Bayformers garbage. That means Soundwave, Shockwave looking like actual Cybertronians that become devices instead of weird piles of metal twisting into other piles of metal. It also means Bumblebee becoming a Volkswagen Beetle, which is just a better look for him than a Camaro.Anyway, this is the new Bumblebee action figure, for the movie, in the Transformers Generations line. Hasbro’s newest, for the movie. And it looks great.This is a deluxe-class Transformer, so it’s about the size of a six-inch Marvel Legends or Star Wars Black Series action figure. Which is pretty standard for Bumblebee. As a robot, he looks pretty much in line with his other movie versions, but with more rounded chest parts. He can be posed in a lot of different stances, and fairly reliably stands up in most of them.Bumblebee doesn’t come with a lot of accessories, but he gets a few. His face pops off for replacing it with a goofy battle mask, his right hand can be switched with a gatling gun, and a chainsaw sword thing snaps onto his left hand. Not a bad combination of extras for making Bumblebee look fearsome. Well, as fearsome as a robot named Bumblebee can look.None of that matters, because his robot form isn’t the best part of this figure. His vehicle form is a Volkswagen Beetle. That’s all you need to know. He becomes a cute little yellow Beetle! Just like G1 Bumblebee! He looks downright adorable as a Beetle.I’ll level with you, this isn’t a great figure. His plastic seems to have two slightly different shades of yellow, his leg and hand joints pop out easily, and he just feels like fairly cheap plastic (which has been a problem for Hasbro’s Transformers, even their Generations ones, for a while). He’s no Binaltech or Masterpiece Bumblebee, but that’s fine, because at $20 he costs a fraction of either of those. So he’s a good choice if you want a Beetle robot on your desk and don’t want to spend much money! He’s the Funko Pop version of Bumblebee to the much more expensive Nendoroids of import and MP Bumblebees.For more geek stuff you can buy, check out an unwieldy-but-necessary Nintendo Switch Online subscription, or the Legend of Zelda Hyrule Shield Backpack.

When moments become memories

first_imgTravelogue, a solo photography exhibition by debutant photographer Amira Chanana, 17, showcased her memories from round the world through her camera. The pictures served as a timestamp of her travel moments across the globe.Unlike the contemporary way, Amira’s approach to express herself through black and white photography made the exhibition unique in its own kind. When asked about her approach she said, “In this rapid, fast-paced and impatient world, colours are merely glanced upon and barely appreciated. On the other hand, black and white medium, renders emphatic emotions and has a deeper connect with the viewer.” Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna, the directors of the Pallette Art Gallery said, “We, at the Palette Art Gallery are happy to promote a young talent like Amira Chanana, whose work speaks for itself. Photography is a medium of art we believe in and while Palette has exhibited the works of renowned artists like Raghu Rai, Dinesh Khanna, Gigi Scaria in the past, we feel that it is equally important to encourage young artists by giving them a platform to showcase their works to a discerning audience.”The quest to capture every moment at its finest and the fear of missing out on moments leads a traveller to take some magnificent pictures. Amira’s pictures, which she maintained as her chronicle of travel, not only depicted the mood of the place but also spoke about its culture and people.last_img read more

A Glimmer of Hope for Existing Home Sales

first_imgA Glimmer of Hope for Existing Home Sales? in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Existing home sales were down 8.5 percent in January from a year ago and dropped 1.2 percent month over month according to the latest Existing-home sales report released by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) on Thursday.A seasonally adjusted rate of 4.94 million existing home sales in January also marked the lowest level of sales since November 2015, marking a cyclical low according to Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at NAR. The Northeast was the only region that saw an uptick in sales during the month, the report indicated.The report, which also records the median prices for existing homes indicated that in January, home prices were up 2.8 percent at $247,500 from the same period last year, marking the 83rd month of consecutive year-over-year price gains. Despite these increases, Yun said that median home price growth was the slowest since February 2012.“Existing home sales in January were weak compared to historical norms; however, they are likely to have reached a cyclical low,” he said. “Moderating home prices combined with gains in household income will boost housing affordability, bringing more buyers to the market in the coming months.”Another factor that was likely to lead to more home sales in the spring buying season was the lower mortgage rates compared with December 2018. While they had little impact on home sales in January, Yun projected that the lower rates would “inevitably lead to more home sales.”Despite rising inventory, housing supply continued to remain an area of concern especially at the lower end of the market. The total housing inventory, according to the report, increased to 1.59 million from 1.53 million in the prior month. Unsold inventory was at a 3.9 months’ supply at the current sales pace, up from 3.7 months in December and 3.4 months during the same time last year.“Taking steps to lower construction costs would be a tremendous help. Local zoning ordinances should also be reformed, while the housing permitting process must be expedited; these simple acts would immediately increase homeownership opportunities and boost local economies,” Yun said.
