Wynne’s claims contradicted as Ontario GDP lower than some American states by The Canadian Press Posted Jul 27, 2016 12:07 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 27, 2016 at 1:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – It turns out Ontario’s economic performance isn’t as strong compared with some of our American neighbours as Premier Kathleen Wynne claimed.Wynne last week announced that Ontario’s first quarter economic growth in 2016 was 0.8 per cent, or three per cent at an annualized rate, which she boasted was “a faster rate than Canada, the United States and all other G7 countries.”But Wynne compared Ontario’s growth with that off the entire United States, ignoring the fact that Arkansas, Washington and Oregon all had annualized growth of 3.9 per cent in the first quarter, while Colorado matched Ontario’s three per cent.NDP finance critic Catherine Fife accuses Wynne of misleading people about the province’s economic performance, and says the premier wants to “spin” the figures to make the Liberal government look good.A spokesman for Finance Minister Charles Sousa denies there was any attempt to mislead on the GDP numbers, and says the province always compares its performance to the United States as a whole, not to individual states.Progressive Conservative finance critic Vic Fedeli calls it a “stretch” for Wynne to say 0.8 per cent growth in one-quarter will stay the same throughout the year and result in three per cent annual growth.Fedeli also says the Liberals can no longer boast that Ontario is the number one jurisdiction in the world for foreign direct investment because the province has now fallen to fourth place.
Freshman Grayson Overman has been an integral part of the Ohio State men’s volleyball team’s success in the 2010 season.A starter in all of his team’s matches, the 6-foot-7-inch California native has been a key contributor for the Buckeyes since day one.The team held high expectations coming into the season. Overman is one of the key young players coach Pete Hanson said would have a breakout year earlier in the season. While the pressure to come into a whole new situation and succeed might unnerve some freshmen, it was motivation for Overman.“From the very beginning, the expectation level for the freshman was to play at the level of the rest of the team.” Overman said. “I love being pushed to play at the level of the older guys each and every day.”Overman said that the level of competition in college is at a whole different level compared to when he played volleyball for his high school in San Clemente, Calif.“The players are all bigger, stronger, faster and more athletic than the kids in high school,”Overman said. “[But] because the intensity and competition increased, it makes everything more rewarding and fun.”Overman seems to have adjusted well to the college game. He currently ranks third on the team in total kills and points scored. But if it weren’t for some heavy recruiting by OSU coaches, the freshman could be scoring for a school out west.“I had originally wanted to stay on the west coast,” Overman said. “But after my official visit and meeting all the guys on the team, I knew I was going to play for Ohio State.”Despite being more than 2,200 miles from his hometown, Overman says he has been able to fit in just fine with his teammates and his new surroundings.“One of the main reasons I came to Ohio State was because of the guys on the team,” he said. “They are all such great people and they have made my transition such an incredible experience.”Nicknamed “Cali brahs” together with freshman and fellow California native Kyle Lawrence by their teammates, Overman says their acceptance is helping him have the time of his life.“I am having such a good time on the team and here at Ohio State that I haven’t had time to be homesick,” he said. Overman said he is able to attribute his success to not only his talents, but because of the support he receives from the players and coaches.“Everyone on the team supports and helps each other on and off the court because the team is our new family,” Overman said. “The unity and support is always there when I need it.”But if Overman should ever feel overwhelmed by the differences between the surf town of San Clemente and the city of Columbus, he is comforted by a simple fact.“California will always be there when I need it,” he said.
His early career included work with Spike Milligan. And he was a star of the West End, appearing as Fagin in the original West End production of Oliver in 1960.He had roles in the unofficial 1967 James Bond film Casino Royale, The Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night and Help, and Superman III.His final appearance was in the 2016 Coen Brother’s film Hail, Caesar! The Oscar-nominated movie also featured George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes and Scarlett Johansson.Talent agency The Artist’s Partnership wrote: “We’re sad to announce our wonderful client John Bluthal has passed away. “Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

The July issue of Mineral Engineering Technical Services’ (METS) Gazette reports that the rising uranium price and the increasing demand for nuclear energy has attracted many investors to reactivate the exploration and mining of uranium in Australia which has been known to contain about 40% of the world’s reserves of uranium. METS believes that this surge of investment will benefit from radiometric sorting in uranium processing: “Uranium can be commercially produced via conventional hydrometallurgical processes, including acid and alkaline leaching. The processes are efficient; however they can be quite costly for low grade ores. Combining hydrometallurgical processes with radiometric sorting provides a cost-effective means to solving this problem.”The report continued by saying: “It has been well accepted that the efficiency of uranium recovery is influenced by the mineralogical characteristics of the ore. The uranium mineral composition and mode of occurrence affects uranium dissolution, while the bulk composition controls reagent consumption.“Radiometric sorting separates uranium ore from the waste rock, producing a uranium-rich beneficiated ore for subsequent processing in the hydrometallurgical circuit. While it reduces the load of downstream processing, it also makes the downstream operations more economically viable with reduction in plant capital and operating costs. For example, a decrease in the waste rock content could avoid the long leach retention time. Hence, this technique is particularly attractive when the downstream processing cost is higher than normal. Vein type deposits show a good potential to be upgraded by radiometric sorting. These deposits contain discrete high grade minerals that are easily separated from the low grade material and gangue.”The report said that radiometric sorting also allows the mining process to be more flexible by providing means to increase the output at the existing facilities and to maintain the output to cope with the declining grades. “Modern radiometric sorting technology also allows the unit to be controlled based on the U3O8 upgrade ratio. This is particularly useful when the mineralisation is close to the economic cutoff grade or a rapid response is required to account for the grade changes.”METS concluded by saying that radiometric sorting is expected to play an integral role in the minerals industry, particularly in uranium processing.
Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferNASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This Weekend Much like rocket science, nuclear physics is super hard. One of the biggest concepts scientists need to consider is criticality — or the threshold of control of a nuclear reaction. Because atoms in radioactive material are unstable and degrade, they can naturally cause their neighbors to do the same. And because nuclear material is usually quite dense, there’s usually a certain mass beyond which the material will be such a good insulator of the radioactive breakdown products, that the whole block becomes unstable and will rapidly begin increasing in temperature and radioactive output.Thing is, this number is super variable based on how well the object is insulated. There are devices that can produce extra neutrons which glom onto other atoms and increase their instability as well as neutron reflectors which simply help insulate the material’s natural output. We didn’t always know this, however, and even when we did, in the early days of researching the stuff, scientists often accidentally caused criticality and nearly killed themselves or blew up their labs. These are their stories.Los Alamos LaboratoryCredit: Wikimedia CommonsThe Los Alamos lab was one of the main sites for the work on the Manhattan Project. It was also the location of several of the first injuries and nuclear criticality accidents in history. The first of which came when Otto Frisch, an Austrian physicist, leaned over a nuclear device for just a few seconds. He just barely saved himself by noticing that red lamps which would normally flicker when exposed to the device, where glowing steadily — indicating that his body was reflecting neutrons and potentially causing criticality.“If I had hesitated for another two seconds before removing the material … the dose would have been fatal,” he later said. Thankfully, he only received a large dose of radiation.Unfortunately, Harry Daghlian wasn’t so lucky. He accidentally dropped a chunk of tungsten carbide, a very dense and effective neutron reflector, onto a sphere of plutonium. The resulting blast of radiation, though brief, was enough to eventually cause his death.That sphere later became known as the “demon core” during another major incident the next year. Physicist Louis Slotin had encased the core in two hemispherical chunks of beryllium. A simple screwdriver kept them separated enough to avoid causing the core to go critical, but the tool got knocked away, causing the device to vomit radiation into the room. Slotin quickly separated the shell, saving the lives of the other scientists in the room, but he, unfortunately, died a few days later from radiation poisoning. More than a decade later, Cecil Kelly accidentally triggered criticality in a vat of plutonium solution. While working on a research project investigating new methods of purifying plutonium, Kelly stirred the tanks containing the solution. The plutonium was just enough that the substance went critical for a tiny fraction of a second, but that was enough to hit Kelly with a fatal dose as he screamed for help.The Othersvia Los Alamos National LaboratoryIt’s no wonder why Los Alamos was such a hotbed for these incidents, in the early years we just didn’t know enough and that was the purpose of the research there. But, there have been plenty of incidents at other facilities as well.Another, accident similar to the one that claimed Kelly’s happened in 1964 at a recycling facility for nuclear waste. An operator at the Wood River Junction facility accidentally mixed uranium solution with uranium fuel and managed to create a burst of radiation more than double the one that killed Cecil Kelly. He died two days later.Another in the former soviet union claimed the lift of a shift supervisor at a plant. Two workers had been working with plutonium in a container that was shaped the wrong way — and yes, even the exact shape of the vessel you’re using matters. They caused an initial incident, triggering an evacuation of the plant. As the supervisors returned to screen the area, it is suspected that the shift supervisor attempted to pour the solution down the drain, triggering another incident and his own death a short while later.It sucks that so many great minds left us, in part due to mistakes. This stuff is super dangerous, obviously, and not to be taken lightly. But it is thanks to the efforts of these folks that we know as much as we do about nuclear effects in general. Besides, the lives claimed by nuclear experiments are far and away dwarfed by the number of chemists who have died from accidentally licking something they shouldn’t and biologists getting themselves eaten, injected with venom, or exposed to some pugnacious bacteria. Honestly, given how rapidly criticality can get out of hand, it’s a stunner that we don’t have craters at a lot of these sites.Find out if nuclear fusion could be commercially viable in 15 years.

By MUHAMMED S.BAH & Mustapha Jallow Heavily armed security personnel from the Police Intervention Unit (PIU) were yesterday stationed at the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) headquarters, sending back anyone who tries to enter the IEC premises at the Bertil Harding Highway in Kanifing.Foroyaa reporters visited the place yesterday and saw some armed soldiers and PIU personnel surrounding the building. An IEC official told this reporter that all the staff who reported to work was asked to go back home including the IEC chairman, and senior IEC officials. No reason was disclosed as why the IEC building is barred and guarded.A PIU officer, told Foroyaa that none of the I.E.C. staff who reported for work were allowed to go inside as the gates and doors were locked. Asked whether she knows the reason behind this action, she responded in the negative and added that hopefully the staff would be allowed to work today.
Eden Hazard is hoping that his friend Mohamed Salah will recover in time for the World Cup and he stated that he would even support Egypt for him this summerThe Liverpool star is still recovering from his shoulder injury from last month’s Champions League final and therefore missed Wednesday night’s 3-0 defeat for Egypt against Belgium.Egypt boss Hector Cuper has previously expressed his optimism that Salah will make a recovery in time for the World Cup in what will be the Pharaohs’ first appearance in football’s biggest stage in nearly three decades.Hazard, who scored for Belgium in their 3-0 win at the Stade Roi Baudouin in Brussels, praised Egypt and wished his friend a speedy recovery.“Egypt have good players. We managed to take control of the match and scored an early goal which made things easier for ourselves,” Hazard told ON Sport, via Goal.“We are glad about defeating Egypt 3-0. I wish Salah the best and hope he returns. I will support Egypt in the World Cup for him.Zidane hails ‘quality’ James Rodriguez after Real Madrid’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane reserved special praise for James Rodriguez after his starring role in Real Madrid’s 3-2 win over Levante.“Egypt are so different without Salah but they still performed well with compact lines. Their playing style is close to that of Tunisia.“I spoke with Salah after the Champions League final and sent him a message, as I said he is my friend and I want to see him in the World Cup.”Belgium manager Roberto Martinez added: “Mo Salah is not just a good player, he’s an outstanding footballer, he’s a world-class footballer after what he’s done this season.“Any team is going to miss the goalscoring threat of Mo Salah. We all wish him a speedy recovery and we want to see him in the World Cup.”Egypt will face Uruguay (June 14), hosts Russia (June 19) and Saudi Arabia (June 25) in Group A of the World Cup.

More than a century old, Montessori education takes a holistic, child-centered approach to teaching and learning that researchers say is effective, but for decades these schools have largely been the domain of affluent, white families. Nationally, estimates suggest that between 80 to 90 percent of U.S. Montessori schools are private, and most are concentrated in urban or suburban enclaves—not communities like Latta, where the median income is $24,000. The five miles from Interstate 95 into Latta, South Carolina, amble past fireworks shops and stretches of farmland bordered by matchstick pines and interspersed with the occasional home. Railroad tracks and a lone post office mark the center of town, home to 1,300 people and one elementary school, one middle school, and one high school that serve students in a county nearly 100 miles wide. In many ways, Latta is no different from other communities scattered throughout the rural South: Jobs are limited, businesses are local, and residents know one another. But the opening of a Title I public Montessori school has put this small town at the forefront of a movement that is upending the status quo around access to progressive education. To an outsider, a Montessori classroom may seem chaotic, but every component—from the layout to the school schedule—is designed with specific purpose, emphasizes Angeline Lillard, a psychology professor at the University of Virginia who has conducted research on Montessori schools for the last 15 years.

Apple’s latest MacBook Air and Mac mini each come with the company’s new T2 security chip, which acts as a secure coprocessor that provides new encrypted storage and secure boot capabilities. However, this new chip is paving the way for current and future Apple products to be repaired exclusively by Apple itself.Essentially, the T2 chip could stop your computer from functioning unless Apple’s specific diagnostic software (Apple Service Toolkit 2 System Configuration Suite) validates the parts being replaced. And that software is only located in Apple stores and a small number of Authorized Apple Service Providers.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

Or it could be a threat to keep their authorized network in line. We just don’t know,” iFixit CEO Kyle Wiens said in an interview with The Verge.According to an internal document from Apple obtained by MacRumors, the parts that the T2 chip currently affects are the MacBook Pro’s Touch ID board, display assembly, logic board and top case as well as the iMac Pro’s logic board and flash storage.The document is from earlier in the year, so it has no mention of the latest MacBook Air or Mac mini, but since they both have the new chip we assume they’re in a similar predicament. It states that “For Macs with the Apple T2 chip, the repair process is not complete for certain parts replacements until the AST 2 System Configuration suite has been run. Failure to perform this step will result in an inoperative system and an incomplete repair.”Despite that, the repair masters at iFixit bypassed diagnostics on a 13-inch MacBook Pro (2018) and successfully replaced the display and logic board. To be clear, iFixit is not an Apple Authorized Service Provider. Therefore, we can only assume that the diagnostics system isn’t currently in effect, yet. So if you’re looking to get your latest Mac repaired by a third-party store, you might want to do it as soon as possible.In the company’s blog post, iFixit calls out where you can learn about and fight for electronics right-to-repair laws, because no third-party business should have to lose money from a billion dollar company strong-arming consumers to get exclusive repairs.Best Apple LaptopsMacBook Air vs. iPad Pro: Which Should You Buy?Mac Apps and Tips to Save You Time by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeVikings: Free Online GameIf you’re over 40 – this game is a must!Vikings: Free Online GameUndoKelley Blue Book5 Mid-engine Corvettes That Weren’tKelley Blue BookUndoGrepolis – Free Online GameGamers Around the World Have Been Waiting for this GameGrepolis – Free Online GameUndoTODAYPolice Identify Girl Licking Ice Cream Tub In Viral VideoTODAYUndoMy Food and FamilyHealthy, Homemade Drunken Thai Noodles In Just 20 MinutesMy Food and FamilyUndoVerizon WirelessThis new phone will blow your mind.Verizon WirelessUndoAdvertisement
