The Latest Man who lost family crash seeks safety upgrades

WASHINGTON — The Latest on a U.S. House subcommittee hearing on aircraft safety and the Boeing 737 Max (all times local):11 a.m.A man whose family was killed in the crash of a Boeing 737 Max jet in Ethiopia accused the company of wrongful conduct and told a U.S. House subcommittee that the process to approve aircraft must be strengthened.Paul Njoroge (Nih-JOR-Gay) says Wednesday that Boeing was left to police itself and allowed to sell the Max without recertifying it as a new aircraft.He says leadership of the Federal Aviation Administration should change so safety engineers are in charge and called on Congress to increase its budget.Njoroge says pilots should be trained on simulators to handle the Max’s flight control software that can point the plane’s nose down to avoid an aerodynamic stall.Boeing is proposing computer training as it tries to return the grounded to the air.The Associated Press read more

Catherine Tait is to become the first woman to head the CBC

OTTAWA — The federal government is making a Canadian television and film executive the first woman to head CBC/Radio-Canada.Catherine Tait called the appointment her dream job during an announcement this morning on Parliament Hill, standing alongside Heritage Minister Melanie Joly.Tait, whose appointment is for a five-year term, says she wants the broadcaster to think digital, with consumers able to access content anywhere and any time. The CBC needs to be an inclusive storyteller for Indigenous Peoples, women, newcomers and LGBTQ communities, she says.‘The genie is out of the bottle’: Canadian broadcast industry clashes over regulations in Netflix eraTorstar hiring 20 reporters as it rebrands and revamps Metro urban dailies across Canada1 in 4 anglophone Canadians have no TV subscription, over half use Netflix: reportTait talked about putting creating quality content to reach audiences across the country, saying she wanted to focus on creating local content and hits such as “Murdoch Mysteries.”“CBC/Radio-Canada, along with public broadcasters around the world, are under significant competitive pressure,” she said.“In order for public broadcasters to survive and to flourish, we must flourish on the services news and programming that most connect with our public, not just as one audience, but as many audiences. This is after all the power of digital.”Tait didn’t provide many details of the changes she hopes to see at the public broadcaster, saying she wanted to take some time to talk with outgoing president Hubert Lacroix and other executives.Tait, 60, has worked in the film and television business in Canada and the United States for more than 30 years, including time at Telefilm Canada and as a former president of Salter Street Films, which produced a CBC mainstay, “This Hour Has 22 Minutes.”People who have worked with Tait say she has a deep understanding of the domestic and international industry and describe her being unafraid to take risks.She lives in New York and is currently president of Duopoly, a company that produces digital, television and film content.Tait’s appointment is the latest in a series of moves the Liberals have made at the public broadcaster that began in 2016 when it boosted funding to the CBC by $675 million over five years.The government also launched an overhaul last year of how members of the board of directors are chosen — a response to complaints that the selection process was open to political interference and did not reflect Canada’s diversity. read more

Number of cases of West Nile virus in Attica increases

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram West Nile virus has been spreading widely in recent years, while it has been established in Greece following an increase in mosquito populations migrating from Africa.Even though it is called West Nile, as its symptoms were fist categorised and isolated in Uganda, the virus reportedly afflicts people and livestock in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America.Another six municipalities in Attica were added to the areas that have reported cases of the West Nile virus this summer while cases have been documented in at least 39 municipalities, including central suburbs like Kallithea, Egaleo and Piraeus.Last year, only 10 municipalities reported cases of the virus which has infected at least 77 people from May 31 until August 20, claiming five lives in Attiki alone.The virus has also infected people in Viotia, Halkidiki, Thessaloniki, Evia, Imathia, Pella, Corinth, Kilkis and Rethymno.Greece’s Center for Disease Prevention and Control (KEELPNO) is expected to release its latest report this week.last_img read more

Conte blaims lost players for bad season

first_imgThe current Chelsea manager, who is likely to be switched this summer due to the club’s poor performance and his problems with higher management, has shared his opinion on why are they trailing Manchester City by 28 points in the Premier League.John Terry, who has been a trademark for the Blues in the past years, and has led the team to five Premier League titles, left last summer for Aston Villa. Nemanja Matic and Diego Costa, both of whom have won two titles with Chelsea, also left.

Problems with MatSu code could lead to pot shop in Talkeetna

first_imgAn oversight in Mat-Su Borough code could allow a marijuana store to open on Talkeetna’s Main Street without a conditional use permit from the borough. At public meetings this week, some Talkeetnans expressed their concerns and asked the Mat-Su Borough Assembly to step in.Listen NowSince the legalization of recreational marijuana by Alaska voters in 2014, municipalities and the state have crafted regulations and tax structures for how to govern the new industry. In October, Mat-Su Borough voters rejected a ballot question that would ban commercial marijuana. In other areas of the state, the process is further along. Sara Williams of the borough’s marijuana advisory committee told the Mat-Su Borough Assembly that 23 licenses for commercial marijuana facilities were issued statewide on Tuesday, including three cultivation facilities in the Mat-Su. Williams said that retail facilities are still months away due to borough permitting requirements.“We won’t see retail stores in the Mat-Su until early next year some time,” Williams said. “We’ll probably see the first one, I think, on the planning commission’s docket in March.”That timeline could be accelerated, however. Marijuana facilities within the Mat-Su are required to obtain a conditional use permit from the borough. The way the code currently reads, however, facilities already inside a special land use district are exempt from the requirement. One retail facility planned for Downtown Talkeetna, named The High Expedition, fits that exemption.At the Talkeetna Community Council meeting on Monday, five people, including area resident Beth Valentine, expressed concern that a retail marijuana shop could open on Main Street without borough approval.“There’s a loophole,” Valentine said. “We want to see conditional use permits. That’s what’s being required throughout the whole borough, and I want to see it for Main Street, so that it goes before this board and you make a decision.”The message of those speaking out for closure of the loophole and further public process was coupled with opposition to the idea of commercial marijuana in Downtown Talkeetna. Beth Valentine and fellow Talkeetna resident Geri McCann want the Mat-Su Borough Assembly to ask for a freeze on the licensing process for facilities that fall under the loophole until it can be closed. McCann said the borough is responsible for the loophole, and should take action.“You have not protected us adequately. We are asking you to rectify your error and not have us deal with it,” McCann said. “We have a right to say what goes on in Downtown Talkeetna right next to a public park.”An amendment to close the loophole for the small number of proposed marijuana facilities inside special land use districts was referred to the Mat-Su Borough Planning Commission at the end of Tuesday’s meeting. Deputy Borough Mayor Matthew Beck says it’s possible the assembly could have the amendment back for a potential final vote by its next meeting on December 20th. If final approval or a moratorium occurs before The High Expedition receives a state license, then it would have to follow the borough’s permit requirement as well.Joe McAneney, one half of the partnership hoping to open The High Expedition in Talkeetna, said those speaking out are misinformed, and that a requirement for a conditional use permit will not keep his business from opening its doors.“I am fully prepared to do the paperwork. I’ve looked at it. I don’t not meet any of the requirements, so the conditional use permit, even if I do not have to fill it out, will not prevent the dispensary from opening,” McAneney said. “That’s black and white.”Joe McAneney has been a regular at Talkeetna Community Council meetings this year. The first time he addressed the council, McAneney said his intention is to be open and transparent about his plans. After Tuesday’s borough assembly meeting, he says the borough permit process would mean an extra permitting fees and additional time, but remains confident that a retail shop in on Talkeetna’s Main Street will open in the near future.last_img read more

first_imgJohnson & Johnson and Swiss biotech company Actelion Ltd have entered into an agreement under which Johnson & Johnson will launch an all-cash tender offer in Switzerland to acquire all the outstanding shares of Actelion for $280 per share, valuing the deal at around $30 billion.Cisco grabs San Francisco-based AppDynamics for $3.7 billion just before its IPOAs part of the acquisition, Actelion will spin out its drug-discovery operations and early-stage clinical development assets into a newly created Swiss biopharmaceutical company R&D NewCo, according to a statement released by Actelion late on Thursday (January 26).

Writ seeks ban on antibiotic sale sans experts suggestions

first_imgHigh CourtA writ petition was filed with the High Court on Wednesday seeking its directive to ban the sale of antibiotics in the country without prescriptions of specialist physicians, reports UNB.Supreme Court lawyer Syed Sayedul Haque Suman filed the writ attaching reports published in different newspapers, including British daily ‘The Telegraph’.The HC bench of justice Sheikh Hassan Arif and justice Razik-Al-Jalil is likely to hear the writ on Thursday, said Suman.Directorate general of Drug Administration, all deputy commissioners and upazila nirbahi officers (UNOs) of the country were made respondents to the writ.The writ petitioner said pharmacies provide antibiotics to patients for diseases that need not those and due to excessive use, antibiotics do not work after a certain time.At one stage, germs like bacteria and fungi develop the ability to defeat the drugs designed to kill them which is called antibiotic resistance.Each year, around 700,000 people around the world die due to antibiotic resistance, Suman said citing a research of the World Health Organization (WHO).Bangladesh is at stake due to excessive use of antibiotics in fodder, fish and agriculture, he said.According to a Poribesh Bachao Andolon (POBA) report, at least 55.7 per cent residents of the capital have already developed antibiotic resistance due to high level of antibiotic intake through agricultural items, Suman added.last_img read more

Akel looking to commit Spanos to document of principles

first_imgMain opposition Akel is looking to commit would-be candidate for the presidency Mike Spanos to an agreed ‘document of principles’ before putting his name down for discussion by party members, leader Andros Kyprianou said on Tuesday.Speaking on state TV, Kyprianou denied the party was having “second thoughts” on whether to back Spanos, who has already said that if he were to run he would do so as an independent, after comments he made on a TV show on Friday in which he advocated smaller government and described political parties as “malignant [cancer] cells”.“You need to fire your informants,” Kyprianou joked after the anchorwoman cited rumours saying that Akel’s leadership had been shaken by the remarks.The party’s last-minute decision to postpone member-level discussion of Spanos’ name as the communist party’s candidate only added fuel to the fire.“Let me tell you what is going on,” Kyprianou said.“We and Mr Spanos had discussed the key issues of interest – the Cyprus problem and the economy. Indeed, after all that was publicly stated, we judged that we should put our discussions down in writing, instead of merely passing on points of convergence orally.”According to the Akel leader, a ‘document of principles’ is being prepared, which will then be discussed with Spanos with a view to specific agreements.“We had talked with Mr Spanos, and we had delved into the issues we cared most about,” Kyprianou said.“Now we want to look at more specific issues, to establish whether such a document of principles is feasible. I hope we can agree, but I can’t say in advance that we will.”Asked whether the party was disturbed by Spanos’ references to smaller government and malignant cells, Kyprianou evaded.“I don’t want to have this discussion,” he said.“We have a vision for Cyprus, and we want to agree with Mr Spanos on this vision so that we can present the Cypriot people with a note of optimism.”Akel is not having second thoughts, Kyprianou insisted – it is merely in discussion with its preferred candidate aiming at agreement.“There will be discussion at the level of party members, let us see what comes out of that,” he said.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Dulhania Related News Love tends to overlook ideologies relationships don’t and that’s why the idea of people who have polar opposite belief system coming together doesn’t seem plausible But this is exactly what director Shashank Khaitan has attempted to explore with his second film Badrinath ki Dulhania The director says that he has seen many relationship conflicts over opposing beliefs around him and that compelled him to write the film starring Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt in lead roles “The core is man and woman love and respect and the role of that in a relationship I have always seen around me and I have been judgmental about it I have tried to be neutral about it and also tried to have no opinion about it Today especially there is so much talk around man woman the role of women feminist chauvinist and as a story-teller I questioned myself How can I bring this out in the most normal way without judging either side It is easy to point fingers at everybody but it is tough to tell a neutral story and then let people decide what is right and wrong” Shashank said in an interview Watch | 5 Reasons To Watch Alia Bhatt And Varun Dhawan Starrer Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya “I have had the good fortune of having great strong women in my life and sometimes when I see the other side I feel why can’t these women be treated the same way the women are treated in my house You realise circumstances over there are different their upbringing is different and education is different So I have tried to use whatever limited understanding I have of that life of what I have seen around me and then tell this story of two characters — Badri and Vaidehi” added the director-writer Badrinath ki Dulhania is the sequel to highly successful romantic comedy Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania which was

to hate who is apparently a feminist and then try to get them on the same level for love How can these two characters ever fall in love How can they ever try to lead a simple life That’s been the journey That’s done in the most commercial way I could By telling the story not with sorrow but with joy” With the success of Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania the thought of turning it into a franchise shouldn’t have been unusual but Shashank revealed that initially there were no plans for building a film series until producer Karan Johar heard the script of Badrinath ki Dulhania “When I wrote this film it wasn’t for the franchise I wrote it as my second independent film After hearing the narration Karan said ‘I really like the name Badrinath Bansal and as this story also deals with love and marriage it would be interesting if we design a franchise around it so that anyone who wants to tell the story with love and shaadi he or she can use it as a part of the Dulhania series’ It was just an idea we thought about it for a week and suddenly we were all excited about it” Shashank said Varun and Alia individually and as an on-screen couple were loved in the first film Shashank who is close friends with both the actors said the three of them were conscious about not collaborating again for the sake of their equation “I didn’t custom-make the script for Varun and Alia but by the time I finished writing it I was sure that they could really pull it off and they would be the best choice After Humpty was over we three chatted After a successful film there is always this discussion where people are excited and think ‘We will work together again’ But we had decided that we would not take emotional decisions If we take decisions for friendship’s sake and if the film
