Michigan governor open to allowing Great Lakes oil tunnel

LANSING, Mich. — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said Wednesday that she’s open to allowing construction of an oil transport tunnel beneath the channel where Lakes Huron and Michigan meet, despite previously halting work on a tunnel plan developed by her predecessor.Whitmer told reporters she wanted as quickly as possible to shut down Enbridge’s Line 5, which carries oil and natural gas liquids between Superior, Wisconsin, and Sarnia, Ontario. A more than 4-mile-long (6.4-kilometre-long) segment of the line divides into two pipes that run along the bottomlands of the Straits of Mackinac, which links Michigan’s two peninsulas.“There’s no quick, easy solutions here, but if the goal is to get the pipeline out of the water, I think the only responsible thing to do is to pursue any strategy that gets us there, including the possibility of a tunnel,” the Democrat said.Environmental groups that supported Whitmer’s election last fall urged her to reject the tunnel option and move quickly to shut down the underwater Line 5 segment, as she pledged to do during her campaign. Republicans in the state Legislature welcomed what they described as Whitmer’s “about-face” on the issue but accused her of wasting time.Former Republican Gov. Rick Snyder wrapped up a deal with Enbridge toward the end of his term calling for a new pipeline segment that would be housed in a tunnel to be drilled through bedrock beneath the lakebed. Once the new line was completed, the existing twin pipes, in place since 1953, would be decommissioned.Whitmer ordered state agencies not to proceed with the Snyder plan after Attorney General Dana Nessel released an opinion last month saying a law enacted in December to implement the deal was unconstitutional.But Whitmer never ruled out the idea of a tunnel. The Detroit News reported Wednesday that her administration had restarted talks with Enbridge, a Canadian company based in Calgary, Alberta. Whitmer spokeswoman Tiffany Brown told The Associated Press that discussions with the company and advocacy groups “are ongoing.”Responding to questions after an unrelated event, Whitmer said she was pushing “to get the pipeline out of the water at the earliest possible moment.”Attempting to shut down the twin lines immediately by revoking a state easement could prompt a court battle that might keep them operating even longer than called for under the Snyder deal, Whitmer said. It envisions completing the tunnel in 2024, although earlier timelines suggested the process could take seven to 10 years.Steve Chester, a former director of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, is among members of a team advising Whitmer on the matter, Brown said.The pipeline project is supported by labour organizations friendly to Whitmer because of the jobs it would create. But environmental groups issued a flurry of statements Wednesday calling on her to seek alternatives.“A tunnel would prolong the risk of an oil spill along 400 inland waters and Lake Michigan shoreline along which Line 5 runs in Michigan,” said Sean McBrearty, co-ordinator of a coalition called Oil & Water Don’t Mix. “Moreover, to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, we must rapidly move off fossil fuels.”State House GOP Floor Leader Triston Cole of Mancelona said Whitmer should have backed the Snyder plan instead of “placating her political base.”“By stopping Line 5 reconstruction in the first place, the governor created a false crisis, which wasted valuable time and money spent planning for the project,” Cole said.Enbridge spokesman Ryan Duffy said the company was continuing to “provide information to the governor’s office and to seek clarification from the administration on a path forward for the tunnel project.”___Flesher reported from Traverse City, Michigan.John Flesher And David Eggert, The Associated Press read more

Independent UN human rights experts seek facts on Bin Laden killing

The founder and head of Al-Qaida was killed early Monday morning by US forces at a compound in the town of Abbottabad, located close to the Pakistani capital of Islamabad.“In respect of the recent use of deadly force against Osama bin Laden, the United States of America should disclose the supporting facts to allow an assessment in terms of international human rights law standards,” Christof Heyns, the expert dealing with extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, and Martin Scheinin, who deals with human rights and counter-terrorism, said in a joint statement. “For instance it will be particularly important to know if the planning of the mission allowed an effort to capture Bin Laden,” they added. “It may well be that the questions that are being asked about the operation could be answered, but it is important to get this into the open.”The experts, who report in an independent and unpaid capacity to the UN Human Rights Council, noted that in certain exceptional cases, use of deadly force may be permissible as a measure of last resort in accordance with international standards on the use of force, to protect life, including in operations against terrorists.“However, the norm should be that terrorists be dealt with as criminals, through legal processes of arrest, trial and judicially decided punishment,” they stated. “Actions taken by States in combating terrorism, especially in high profile cases, set precedents for the way in which the right to life will be treated in future instances.” Mr. bin Laden claimed responsibility for the 11 September 2001 attacks in the US that claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 people. He is also believed to be responsible for organizing or funding many other attacks, including the 1998 bombing of two US embassies in East Africa, the 1995 bombing of a Saudi security training centre in Riyadh and numerous attacks inside Afghanistan. 6 May 2011Two independent United Nations human rights experts today called on the United States to disclose further details of the recent killing of Osama bin Laden, particularly if there were plans to capture him alive. read more

However he said the Government will await the outcome of an ongoing investigation into the incident before commenting further. (Colombo Gazette) Wijegunaratne led a navy operation to clear the protesters who had prevented ships from entering and leaving the port. Navy Commander, Vice Admiral Ravindra Wijegunaratne denied assaulting the journalist but the Government launched an investigation over the incident. Journalists staged a protest in Fort today against the commander of the Navy after he was accused of assaulting a journalist.The journalist was allegedly assaulted when he was covering a protest by employees of the Hambantota port.

Director of Indian movie with LTTE references challenges decision

The guidelines in question state that the security of the State must not be jeopardised and that friendly relations with foreign states must not be strained. The shooting for the film, which has been long in the making, initially began in 2012. “We had to stop filming in 2013 after we received threats for the issues that our movie was addressing. The producers at that time refused to support us and we began to re-shoot the film in 2016,” he said.Stating that he was hopeful of a positive response from the tribunal, Kumar said that he was ready to mute some scenes or dialogues if necessary, but it was unfair to deny certification of the content. After the trailer of his upcoming movie Neelam was denied certification by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), Indian movie Director Venkatesh Kumar has approached the Indian Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT), The Hindu newspaper reported.“The trailer was refused certification since there are references to Tamil Eelam and the LTTE, which I was told violate guidelines. I have presented a defence to the appellate tribunal contesting the refusal of certification,” he said. Kumar said while the trailer contains visuals of LTTE leader Prabhakaran, the story or the movie does not glorify them. “The film traces the decades of incidents which led to the civil war in Sri Lanka. My film is a documentation of history and merely depicts facts with regard to the genocide which happened there,” the director told the tribunal. read more

SAS forces deployed to kill ISIS chief after Sri Lanka attacks

“We need to get him urgently to stop his poisonous message encouraging global violence, including savage attacks in Britain like we saw at the Manchester Arena in 2017.”There is a bounty of around £20million on Baghdadi, who once ruled parts of Syria and Iraq and sparked global atrocities. Colonel Richard Kemp, former adviser to the Government on terrorism, said: “Baghdadi is one of the most evil men in history and inspires his followers in the Middle East and around the world to acts of the most medieval barbarity. Around 30 SAS and Special Boat Service troops are involved in the hunt, led from a special forces HQ north of Baghdad.Iraq’s “Golden Division” special forces are also involved, helping to secure areas when search missions are called in.RAF drones launched from a base in Kuwait, and flown by “Reaper squadron” pilots based at RAF Waddington, in Lincolnshire, are being deployed on 12-hour surveillance missions.The drones are armed with four Hellfire missiles which can be fired remotely once a target is identified. Drones patrolling Al Anbar and Mosul Provinces are searching for cars being driven by al-Baghdadi’s brother or driver.Hundreds of IS fighters are now trying to reach northern and western Iraq after Coalition and Syrian Democratic Force troops finally smashed the remains of the caliphate in Syria.Recently, RAF Typhoon jets, based in Cyprus, bombed a network of caves where IS fighters were holed up north of Tikrit and east of Bayji.A senior source said: “The border between Syria and Turkey has been sealed, which has forced those who could escape to head for Iraq.“Everyone knew this time would come, when IS was beaten militarily, but we also knew their leaders might go to ground and try to spark revenge attacks globally. Nobody wants to allow Baghdadi to spit out hate-filled messages and a lot of people are on the mission to stop him.“It is not known where al-Baghdadi is, but every suspicious movement on the ground is being monitored and, even though he is the most careful of the high-value targets, he will make a mistake.“They always make a mistake in the end – and then he will be either trapped or killed.”The Ministry of Defence said it did not comment on Special Forces missions. “It would be good to capture him, but this may be unlikely given some of the areas he is thought to be hiding as they are almost no-go areas for western troops. “Al Anbar is considered a fairly likely place for him to be, as well as some of the villages near Mosul, where he once ruled with ferocity.”The search for the 47- year-old Islamic State leader also involves MI6, UK listening station GCHQ and the American National Security Agency.First they have to find him in the most hostile of Iraq’s towns and villages. He taunted Western forces with his “bin Laden-style” message to followers, filmed with an AK47 assault rifle by his side. In the film, he laid claim to the Sri Lanka bloodshed last month.Baghdadi is thought to be hiding in the desert badlands of Iraq’s Al Anbar Province, west of the capital Baghdad.A former Western intelligence officer said: “Al-Baghdadi is a very important figurehead for Islamic State and getting him is a very high priority. His leadership of Daesh has been punctuated with some of the vilest act of violence against human beings by terrorists. SAS forces are on a “kill or capture” mission hunting down the world’s most wanted terror mastermind, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Mirror reported.The troopers have joined up with American Special Forces, intensifying their search for the Islamic State leader following the bomb attacks on churches and hotels in Sri Lanka, which killed 253 people, including eight Britons. Intelligence agencies fear evil Baghdadi’s network could inspire more atrocities across the West, including in Britain. read more

Warren, File) US trade deficit drops to $41.9 billion in July, smallest in 5 months, as exports advance WASHINGTON – The U.S. trade deficit fell in July to the lowest level in five months as exports posted a small gain while imports declined, reflecting a big drop in shipments of consumer goods such as cellphones.The Commerce Department says the deficit narrowed to $41.9 billion in July, a 7.4 per cent decline from a June imbalance of $45.2 billion. Exports were up a small 0.4 per cent to $188.5 billion, helped by stronger sales of U.S.-made autos and machinery, while imports declined 1.1 per cent to $230.4 billion.So far this year, the deficit is running 3.6 per cent above last year’s level, reflecting weaker export sales. The concern is that U.S. growth will be hurt by further declines in exports, reflecting a stronger dollar and overseas weakness in nations such as China. read more

We deserved to win – Warnock

I thought we deserved it today, we got the late goal, but I thought we shaded it a bit,” Warnock told Sky Sports.“If we had a little bit more clinical finishing in the last third, I think we could have to put it to bed.

Ceballos Real Madrid had to changes coaches

13th anniv of 21 Aug grenade attack observed

first_imgIn a matter of moments, the meeting venue becomes a scene of carnage. Prothom Alo File PhotoThe 13th anniversary of the gruesome 21 August grenade attack on a rally of the then opposition Awami League was observed in a sombre mood on Monday.Awami League and its associate bodies observed the day across the country through various programmes, including rallies, discussions and special prayers, doa and milad mahfil.AL organised a discussion at Krishibid Institution Bangladesh (KIB) in the capital in the afternoon where prime minister Sheikh Hasina spoke as the chief guest.The prime minister placed wreaths at a makeshift memorial, set up by Awami League in front of the institution, of martyrs of the gruesome grenade attack.She first placed a floral wreath at the memorial as the prime minister and then another, flanked by leaders of Awami League, as the party president.On 21 August in 2004, as many as 24 leaders and activists of AL and its associate bodies, including the then Mohila AL president, Ivy Rahman, wife of late president Zillur Rahman, were killed.The party people form a human shield around their dear leader Sheikh Hasina. Prothom Alo File PhotoOver 500 others suffered splinter injuries in the attack and many of them became crippled for life.Though Sheikh Hasina, who was the main target of the attack, narrowly escaped the attack, she lost her hearing ability due to the impact of the repeated grenade blasts near the truck-dais of the huge public rally.At least 13 grenades were thrown from the rooftops of a nearby building soon after Sheikh Hasina had finished her speech at the rally.last_img read more

Patrick Wilson Will Take on Jason Momoa in Aquaman

first_imgStay on target The Aquaman movie is chugging along with news that it cast its villain and it’s probably not who you were expecting.It was announced Monday that Patrick Wilson will be facing off against Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry in the upcoming film as Orm Marius, also known as Ocean Master.The actor, best known by Geek readers for playing Nite Owl in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen film, will be returning to work with James Wan, who’s directing Aquaman. The two previously worked together on Insidious and The Conjuring films. Considering how often the two work together, it comes as no surprise that Wilson would show up.Wan understands how obvious it was too. In casting news that no one saw coming from 20,000 nautical miles away, I ordain @patrickwilson73 the Ocean Master. #KingOrm #Aquaman— James Wan (@creepypuppet) December 13, 2016 Teehee. Here we go. @creepypuppet https://t.co/n06e5bV0kw— patrick wilson (@patrickwilson73) December 12, 2016It’s not a bad choice. It’s just not an obvious one. If we would’ve guessed which villain would appear in the first Aquaman movie, we expected Black Manta, who’s the character’s most famous nemesis. Didn’t also help that TheWrap reported in August that Aquaman would be facing off against Black Manta.Orm is still a formidable threat. He’s Curry’s human half-brother, although how they’re related depends on the DC timeline. Sometimes he’s a pirate and sometimes he’s made a deal with a demon for a powerful mystic trident. Considering Warner Bros.’ previous decisions in regards to tone and realism in its DC films, we can deduce they’re probably not going to go for the latter. Either way, we can expect something like a Thor/Loki rivalry for the DCEU. Let’s just hope it isn’t exactly like that.Interestingly, Wilson has already appeared in the DCEU. He provided the voice for the President of the United States in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Since we never saw his face, we assume that continuity won’t be completely ruined with the casting.Aquaman also stars Amber Heard as Mera and Willem Dafoe as Vulko. It’ll crash into theaters on July 27, 2018. ‘Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans’ Trailer Doesn’t Anger MeFinally, Batman Gets a Hollywood Walk of Fame Star last_img read more

How to perform a system transfer to a New Nintendo 3DS

first_imgIn just a few short days the New Nintendo 3DS arrives with its hot new features including a faster processor, faster downloads, and extra buttons. But what if you already have a 3DS with plenty of great games already stored in its internal memory?Not to worry, Nintendo has released this video guide explaining how to transfer data from an old 3DS to a new one, but given how complicated the procedure is you might want to write down some notes.The process starts simple enough. Go into settings on both systems and select system transfer. Nintendo says it’s important not to create a Nintendo Network ID on the New 3DS. After specifying that this is a 3DS transfer, choose which handheld is sending data and which is receiving data. The New 3DS’s microSD card should be blank.From here you can select between three different transfer options. Wireless Transfer moves the data through an Internet connection. However, reports say this is a slow process, and since the New 3DS lacks a power cord you might have to swap the one you already have between both systems to make sure they don’t die during the transfer.Low-Capacity microSD card Transfer moves small files like save data, licenses, and pictures. But full games will have to be downloaded once again on the new system. Finally, you can insert both cards into your computer and manually transfer the data. You’ll just need a #0 Phillips screwdriver to remove the New 3DS’s back panel and access the microSD card slot.After going through with whatever method you choose, all your information should be nice and cozy in your new system, at least until the next Nintendo handheld comes out.last_img read more

Grab an offline copy of Microsoft Windows Live Essentials

first_imgGrab an offline copy of Microsoft Windows Live Essentials by Martin Brinkmann on June 16, 2018 in Windows – Last Update: June 17, 2018 – 27 commentsMicrosoft released the last version of Microsoft Windows Live Essentials, or Windows Essentials, back in the year 2012. While that is a long time ago, it is the case that some included programs are still useful and that first-party alternatives may not really be available.Microsoft ended support for Windows Essentials 2012 in 2017 and removed all downloads of Windows Essentials and individual programs from its web properties.Windows Live Essentials included several programs, most notably Movie Maker, Photo Gallery, Mail, Messenger, Writer, and SkyDrive (OneDrive).Some of the programs don’t work anymore; Microsoft retired Messenger, Mail functionality is limited, and SkyDrive has been replaced with OneDrive.Windows Live Essentials requires at least Windows 7 but it runs fine on newer versions of Microsoft’s Windows operating system including Windows 10. While some programs don’t work at all anymore or only limited, others, like Movie Maker or Photo Gallery, work fine and provide all the included functionality.You can download an offline copy of Microsoft Windows Live Essentials 2012 from Archive.org. Offline copy means that you can install the application suite directly; setup requires no Internet connection and won’t download any data from Microsoft as a consequence. The reason why that is important is that web installers will fail as Microsoft removed the files they require to complete the installation.The download is provided as a web and torrent file, and the file itself has a size of 130 Megabytes. Downloads were not super-fast when I tried regardless of the method that I selected to download the installation file.The installation itself is straightforward but you may run into issues installing the programs on Windows 10. You get the option to install all programs included in the bundle or only select programs.I suggest you select the later (choose the programs you want to install) as some don’t work at all or well anymore so that installing them would be a waste of space on the device.The two programs that you may be interested in the most are Photo Gallery and Movie Maker, and Writer. Problem is that the installer won’t let you uncheck Messenger or OneDrive updates, and that it did quit on a Windows 10 version 1803 system because of that. Installation completed without issues on a Windows 7 test system, however.Closing WordsI don’t know whether there is a way to extract individual programs from the installer to only install those; if there is, let me know in the comments. Windows 7 (and maybe 8) users who want to use some of the programs included in windows Live Essentials can download the package and install it on their devices to use them.SummaryArticle NameGrab an offline copy of Microsoft Windows Live EssentialsDescriptionYou can download an offline copy of Microsoft Windows Live Essentials 2012 to install Movie Maker and other programs on Windows devicesAuthor Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

ATPM also manages other well-known parks and resorts for RACWA in WA, including Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort and Ningaloo Reef Resort, as well as iconic NSW destinations, such as Jindabyne Holiday Park, Breakwall in Port Macquarie and Stockton near Newcastle.With a successful acquisition, the NRMA’s portfolio of parks under ownership and management will increase to 34 across Australia, enabling the NRMA to offer high-quality management services alongside an increased national footprint of owned parks.The acquisition will significantly enhance the NRMA’s already considerable investment portfolio in Australian tourism and travel, which includes Travelodge Hotels, the Kurrajong Hotel in Canberra, and Thrifty Car Rental.The NRMA’s planned purchase of ATPM is the latest in the company’s strategy to invest in Australian domestic tourism and is a strong endorsement for what the NRMA considers the quintessential Australian driving holiday experience.NRMA Executive General Manager of Travel & Touring Paul Davies said the NRMA wanted to enrich the holiday experience for families and couples while supporting tourism in regional Australia.“Supporting sustainable regional communities and growing domestic tourism are two important aspects of the NRMA’s new strategy and it is this vision that is driving NRMA’s acquisition of ATPM,” Mr Davies said.“The driving holiday is an experience that all generations of Australians can relate to and the breadth of holiday parks under ATPM management, combined with NRMA’s own portfolio, will ensure that this experience is accessible to thousands of Australian and international holidaymakers each year.“The NRMA is committed to delivering excellent regional accommodation and also boost local jobs and economic activity – for every $1 spent in a holiday park $1.38 is spent in the local community.“Most of these parks are located on Australia’s most beautiful beaches and nature locations and the NRMA is committed to ensuring that Australian families can holiday at these destinations in quality, safe and affordable accommodation for generations to come.”Glenn Sedgwick, Chairman of ATPM, said the transaction brought together two of the major Australian owned participants in the domestic tourism sector and built on the strengths of both.“We see the joining of ATPM and NRMA as a way to build on NRMA’s great strengths in membership services and the provision of local travel and tourism experiences for families young and old, along with ATPM’s market leading capabilities in park operations and development” Mr Sedgwick said.“We think this arrangement will be good for NRMA members and for local communities where our parks are located. With the increasing corporatisation of the tourism sector, this transaction ensures that an important part of the Holiday Park industry remains in the hands of a membership-owned mutual, which should be good for families seeking terrific experiences in great locations.“We are proud of our team at ATPM and believe they will complement the team at NRMA and together reach a new level of performance in the industry.”Paul Davies and Glenn Sedgwick both said they look forward to working with the current shareholders, staff and partners to finalise the acquisition over coming weeks.Source = NRMAlast_img read more
