Rafale case Will first decide preliminary objection raised by Centre says SC

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court Thursday said it will decide first on the preliminary objections raised by the Centre and then go into the facts of the Rafale fighter jet deal case. A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi wrapped up the hearing on preliminary objections by the Centre that review petitioners in the Rafale jet deal case cannot rely on privileged documents obtained illegally. It will be known later as to when the order will be pronounced on the issue. Also Read – Squadrons which participated in Balakot air strike awarded citations on IAF Day The top court asked the petitioners seeking review of its order to focus on the preliminary objections regarding admissibility of the leaked documents. “Only after we decide the preliminary objection raised by the Centre, we will go into the facts of the case,” said the bench, also comprising Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph. At the outset, Attorney General K K Venugopal, appearing for the Centre, claimed privilege over documents pertaining to the Rafale fighter jet deal with France and told the Supreme Court that no one can produce them in the court without the permission of the department concerned. Also Read – SC declines Oil Min request to stay sharing of documents on Reliance penalty Venugopal referred to section 123 of the Evidence Act and provisions of RTI Act to buttress his claim. He told the top court that no one can publish documents which relate to national security as the security of the State supercedes everything. Advocate Prashant Bhushan, one of the petitioners seeking review, opposed the submission and said that the Rafale deal documents, which AG says are privileged, have been published and are already in public domain. Former Union minister Arun Shourie, who is one of the review petitioners, submitted that he was thankful to the Centre and the Attorney General for saying in their affidavit that these are photocopies, proving the genuineness of these documents. Bhushan further said that provisions of RTI Act say public interest outweighs other things and no privilege can be claimed except for documents which pertain to intelligence agencies. There is no government-to-government contract in purchasing Rafale jets as there is no sovereign guarantee extended to India by France in the Rs 58,000 crore deal, Bhushan said. He also said the Press Council of India Act provides provisions for protecting sources of journalists. Senior advocate Vikas Singh, appearing for another petitioner Vineet Dhanda, said that the government cannot claim privilege on these documents. Yashwant Sinha, another former Union minister, is also a petitioner seeking review of the Supreme Court verdict of December 14 which held that there was no occasion to really doubt the decision making process warrenting setting aside of the defence contract for purchase of 36 Rafale fighter jets from France.last_img read more

Libya UN looking to return to Tripoli after unrest forces temporary relocation

According to media reports, angry mobs attacked a UN office in Tripoli on Sunday after NATO bombed Colonel Muammar Al-Qadhafi’s family compound in an attack that reportedly killed one of the Libyan leader’s sons and several grandchildren. NATO forces have been carrying out air strikes in response to a Security Council resolution adopted in March that authorized UN Member States to take “all necessary measures” to protect civilians in Libya, where initially peaceful protests have transformed into open conflict between opposition groups and the Qadhafi regime.The conflict has created a humanitarian crisis in the country, while an estimated 665,000 people, including large numbers of third-country nationals, have fled to neighbouring countries.The UN said that humanitarian operations are still being carried out and there are still international staff members in the rebel-held city of Benghazi. It hopes to return to the capital as soon as the situation allows. “Humanitarian operations are continuing, with the redeployed staff from Tripoli supporting operations in western Libya from Tunisia,” UN spokesperson Martin Nesirky told reporters in New York. Meanwhile, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reports that, as of yesterday, more than 12,000 people had been evacuated from the besieged city of Misrata. It also remains concerned that deaths and injuries continue to be reported from the fighting there.UN officials have stressed the need for medical supplies and staff, while also warning that stocks of food and water are sufficient for only one to two months in some areas of the country.The protests that began in Libya in February are part of a broader pro-democracy movement across North Africa and the Middle East that has led to the downfall of long-standing regimes in Tunisia and Egypt. 2 May 2011The United Nations is exploring ways to re-enter Tripoli as soon as possible, a spokesperson for the world body said today, following the announcement that 12 international staff left owing to unrest in parts of the Libyan capital. read more

Top UN envoy for Liberia poised to ask Security Council for large

Briefing reporters on the situation in Liberia, Jacques Paul Klein, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative, said the country had “stepped back in time.” It was a nation where 85 per cent of the population lived at the poverty line; where 70 per cent of the militias were children under the age of 18; where unemployment was at 90 per cent; and where the capital city, Monrovia, did not have running water or electricity, and had not for the past 10 years.Mr. Klein said that in order to help in the reconstruction of the country, his assessment team had outlined a long-range plan of how to rebuild the health care and education systems, the port and the economy as a whole. That survey had been completed, and he would hopefully present the Secretary-General’s report to the Council next week.The report asks for a fairly large force – some 15,000 peacekeepers and 900 international police – as the assessment team did not want to repeat the mistake made in Sierra Leone of going in with too light a force, Mr. Klein noted. A good number of countries had come forward to volunteer and had promised contributions for both troops and civilian police.Asked about the length and the cost of the proposed plan, Mr. Klein said that he did not know, as experts had not yet been brought in to estimate the cost of rebuilding the port of Monrovia, the hydroelectric grid, and the road infrastructure, among other things. It would take a programme of at least five to 10 years to rebuild the failed State, he said.The hardest part, he continued, would be to rebuild Liberia in terms of long-range reconstruction and funding, because the regime of former President Charles Taylor had effectively destroyed the State. All the ministries had been gutted, all the archives had been destroyed, the medical infrastructure was gone, and the educational infrastructure had ceased to exist, he said.Mr. Klein said he would ask the Security Council not to be indifferent to the people of Liberia, “a founding member of the United Nations [now]…fallen on hard times.” There was a clear understanding that Liberia was the key to West Africa, and the excellent work that the British had done in Sierra Leone, and that the French had done in Côte d’Ivoire, could all very rapidly become undone if Liberia imploded.Meanwhile on the ground in Liberia, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) relief ship, Martin I Majuro, steamed out of Monrovia harbour this afternoon bound for the southern coastal town of Harper. On board, an inter-agency UN and international non-governmental organization (NGO) mission is poised to dock and enter territory held by forces from the rebel group Movement for Democracy in Liberia (MODEL) in the hope that access to Harper will widen the international assistance to Liberia’s most vulnerable. read more

The College Football Playoff Picture Looks Tidy Now But That Will Probably

For instance, our model says there’s only about a 1-in-5 chance that all four current major-conference undefeateds make the playoff in the end. Some of that comes from the possibility of losses — according to our simulations (based on ESPN’s FPI ratings), there’s a 96 percent probability that at least one of the four loses before the playoff field is set — and more still comes from the uncertainty of how the committee eventually will sort out the top four.Texas A&M’s dropping out of the conversation — their CFP odds fell from 19 percent to 2 percent — helped crystallize the playoff picture over the weekend. Alabama, Clemson, Michigan and Washington also saw their CFP chances rise because they either scratched a difficult opponent off of their schedule (the Tide squeaked past LSU) or improved their FPI with dominating wins (the Tigers and Wolverines won by 54 and 56, respectively, while the Huskies dropped 66 points on Cal).But there are still plenty of paths for teams currently on the outside looking in. Washington’s remaining schedule is notably difficult, starting with a matchup against FPI No. 12 USC on Saturday. A slip-up could open a window for, say, Louisville — if it keeps winning. Meanwhile, Ohio State would likely play its way in by beating Michigan in their annual tilt on Nov. 26, and two-loss Wisconsin could still feasibly make it by winning the Big 10’s opposite division and the championship game over the Michigan-Ohio State winner. (Our model gives conference champions a slight bonus.)With only two of the top eight in our current CFP odds having anything less than an 88 percent chance of winning their next game (according to FPI), this weekend might not make for many wild swings in the playoff odds and rankings. But soon enough, the chaos will set in — perhaps even for that neat, tidy four-team group atop the committee’s standings.Check out our college football predictions. Things have been relatively easy for the College Football Playoff committee so far this season. There are four remaining undefeated major-conference schools — Alabama, Clemson, Michigan and Washington — which slide neatly into the top four slots of the rankings. Meanwhile, a couple of dominant one-loss teams — Ohio State and Louisville — wait in the wings, just ahead of the gnarled mass of two-loss teams in the field at large.Even when the committee invited controversy in its initial 2016 rankings, slotting then 7-1 Texas A&M ahead of unbeaten Washington for the No. 4 slot, it was quickly given the opportunity to fix the mistake when the Aggies lost at Mississippi State. And with the committee’s rankings aligning with outside opinion, our College Football Playoff prediction model sees more certainty in the “Final Four” than a week ago. Four slots, four undefeated teams — it seems as if things are shaping up to work out unusually well in the CFP’s normally chaotic world.Well, maybe. If those four teams win out, things would indeed be convenient for the committee. Our model even thinks a team as dominant as Alabama could afford to drop a game and still be more likely to make the playoff than not. But, as is often the refrain when peering into the college football crystal ball, a lot can happen between now and when the final rankings are released on Dec. 4.

Zuckerbergs PreFacebook Domain Sells for 30000

first_imgDomain names are the new used cars. Really, there’s no better way to own a piece of your favorite celebrity in the early 21st century than by snatching up their old domain names. It’s hard imagine anyone buying a domain like Facemash.com for $35,000, were it not the former domain of an Internet billionaire.Mark Zuckerberg launched Facemash.com in 2003–the site was something of a Harvard-specific version of Hot or Not. He soon let the domain lapse, after moving on to bigger and better things.The person who bought the site post-Zuck recently put it up on the auction block with a Buy it Now price of $35,000. While the asking price seemed pretty lofty, Facemash pulled in nearly that amount, raking in $30,201 after 10 bids in 20 days. The buyer is anonymous, but Rahul Jain, the former owner says that no one at Facebook or Sony (the studio behind The Social Network) was behind the bid.AdChoices广告Jain says that part of the winning bid will go to Indian education non-profit, the the Dakshana Foundation.last_img read more

Raspberry Pi des problèmes de livraisons dus à une erreur de production

first_imgRaspberry Pi: des problèmes de livraisons dus à une erreur de productionÀ peine sorti, le mini PC Raspberry Pi à 19 euros connait des problèmes: l’usine chargée de sa fabrication a intégré les mauvais ports Ethernet. Une erreur réparable, mais qui va entraîner des retards de livraisons. Le Raspberry Pi est victime de son succès et la première série est déjà épuisée. Elle s’est écoulée à un rythme phénoménal, jusqu’à 700 unités par seconde… La distribution Linux vient également d’être mise à disposition.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?La seconde série est donc sur les rails, mais l’erreur réalisée par l’usine risque de créer des délais supplémentaires. Apparemment, le fabricant à intégré des ports Ethernet (RJ45) sans blindage. Les bons ports peuvent être relativement facilement replacés sur les cartes, et devront l’être avant d’être livré au client. L’erreur a été découverte il y a quelques jours et les Raspberry Pi déjà assemblés ont déjà presque tous été modifiés pour recevoir une nouvelle prise réseau. Le délai, relativement faible, ne devrait pas trop pénaliser ceux qui ont acheté des appareils de cette seconde série.Par contre, une certaine quantité des prises inadaptées ayant été achetées, les prochaines séries devront attendre de nouvelles livraisons, ce qui risque d’être plus long. “Nous devons à nouveau reprendre le cycle négociations/commande/livraison, aussi vite que possible”, avoue, sans rien dissimuler, la fondation Raspberry Pi. Le 11 mars 2012 à 10:30 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Fire marshal Sundays church fire humancaused

first_imgSunday’s fire at Amazing Grace Baptist Church in Hazel Dell was human-caused, the Clark County Fire Marshal’s Office determined.Investigators haven’t released additional details about the fire, such as whether it was accidentally or intentionally set.The fire at the church, 6902 N.E. Hazel Dell Ave., started outside the west side of the building, which is the back of the church, and traveled up the vinyl siding into the attic.The blaze, reported at 12:39 a.m. Sunday, caused an estimated $1.5 million damage to the structure and its contents. Human-caused doesn’t necessarily mean arson, said Susan Anderson, Clark County senior deputy fire marshal.“We’re still investigating into the exact circumstances,” she said.Anyone with information about the fire is asked to call the fire marshal’s office at 360-397-2186 ext. 3321.last_img read more

Why Arent Magazines Selling More

first_imgTAMPA, Florida—Magazines, when they sell, are a category powerhouse. So why aren’t they selling more? Day two of the Magazine Publishers of America’s 2008 Retail conference was dominated by data looking to answer that question. Surveys anchored the day’s presentations—from the role of magazines at retail from a female shopper’s perspective; to a Willard Bishop Grocery SuperStudy that highlighted the magazine category’s significant profit margin; and finally, a united call to action from three of the industry’s distributors. And while magazines do face some challenges at retail, the performance-based figures are very positive. Yet these figures are good only when magazines actually make it from shelf to shopping cart, a transition the day’s speakers and panelists paid special attention to.Magazine Shoppers Like to BuyWendy Liebmann, founder and CEO of retail market research firm WSL Strategic Retail, presented a niche version of WSL’s “How America Shops” survey that examined the magazine’s place in a shopper’s retail experience-how 700 (mostly female) shoppers who usually buy magazines compare to a broader population of shoppers that tend not to. Top-line findings show women who tend to buy magazines when they go shopping are cautious shoppers, but they like to browse. In fact, they’re a bit less price-sensitive, said Liebmann. Also, women who buy magazines at retail shop at a greater variety of channels, and are more likely to buy online: 71 percent of magazine shoppers shop online compared to 34 percent of regular shoppers. Magazines are number-one on the list of an affordable, less than $10, treat. Sixty-one percent surveyed prefer magazines over beverages, books and candy. Magazines Perform WellTom Griffith, senior consultant at Willard Bishop, another retail market research firm, presented findings from the firm’s Grocery SuperStudy, based on a calendar 2006 analysis of all departments and SKUs in a cross-section of stores. The study noted that while center-store space is shrinking in favor of perimeter space, magazines are a solid category performer. Among the findings: Within general merchandise, magazines generate 6.4 percent of sales and 16.3 percent of the profit at $.58 of profit per unit. Magazines provide a higher true profit per unit than other front-end categories: Gum, $.27; candy, $.12; carbonated beverages, $.08; and snacks, $.34.A Call to ActionA panel representing the industry’s major distributors-Drew Wintemberg, EVP sales, Time/Warner Retail, Jay Felts, SVP sales and marketing, Comag, and Jay Wysong, EVP and COO, Distribution Services, Inc.-offered a compelling call to action for the industry to improve retail sales. The day’s earlier presentations offered positive retail performance figures for the magazine category, and this panel offered some of their own, but the full sales potential of the category can only be met if the industry unites in its message to retailers, said Wintemberg. Despite rock-solid performance, retailers still aren’t giving magazines the space or attention needed to exploit the sales figures. “We, as an industry, have got to find a way to get together and make it easier to do business with our category,” said Wintemberg. “We have to put our egos aside because if we don’t we’re going to lose the space to other categories.”Wintemberg compared the effort needed to sell the category into retail to the effort the industry puts into lobbying for postal rates. “We need to mobilize our industry around newsstand in the same way as we have with our postal rate lobbying efforts. We need the same commitment,” he said.Comag’s Felts noted that when dealing at the retail level, the category must be sold first and then sell the title. “We need to secure the beachhead first, and then get into the individual titles,” he said.Felts said the category’s profitability, despite being comparatively high, remains hidden. “On the supply side, this comes across as an unnecessarily complex business, but we’re quickly approaching the $5 billion sales mark as a category in 2010.”Wintemberg said the panel’s presentation will soon be delivered to industry organizations to help facilitate the united message. “You have to take it and use it as a preamble every time you make a call. Treat this as an industry first,” he said.last_img read more

National State Level Conservative Groups Ramping Up Presence in Anc Mayors Race

first_imgAmy Demboski surrounded by supporters at Election Central on Tuesday night, including one holding a sign with the middle cut-out, a reference to attacks last week against her campaign posters. (Photo: Zachariah Hughes, KSKA)Major conservative political groups are stepping into the Anchorage mayor’s race. The May runoff between Amy Demboski and Ethan Berkowitz is drawing increasing attention from state and national organizations hoping to influence local politics.Download AudioAmericans For Prosperity is a political group based in Virginia, backed by the Koch brothers, that advocates for conservative causes. They don’t endorse candidates, but will be seeking to inform Anchorage voters about their two choices for mayor.“We’ve identified Ethan’s record as one that’s troubling, and we think will be devastating to the residents of Anchorage,” said Jeremy Price, spokesman for the Alaska chapter of AFP.Price said that in the past Berkowitz has supported higher taxes and larger government. AFP is still developing a strategy for how to connect with voters, and that will determine whether or not they’re required to file financial disclosures with the Alaska Political Offices Commission.“We don’t disclose who our donors are,” Price said, though he admits that funding comes from both inside and outside of the state. “But the longer our presence in Alaska is, the more we receive donations from Alaskans.”Political Action Groups are barred from coordinating with campaigns directly. However, the Demboski campaign does appear to be drawing more heavily on the state’s conservative political resources as it picks up steam.Before winning the second slot in the runoff election, Demboski received endorsements from high-profile conservative politicians Mead Treadwell and Joe Miller. Now, Miller’s former advisor, Matt Johnson, is working as Demboski’s volunteer coordinator.And, as of two weeks ago, she has brought on David Boyle to handle communications. Boyle was the chairman for the 2008 McCain/Palin campaign in Alaska.“Conservatives in this city–from fiscal conservatives to social conservatives–will see that there’s a very distinct difference between Amy Demboski principals and policies, and her opponents’ more liberal policies,” Boyle said by phone.For the last several years, Boyle has led the Alaska Policy Forum, a conservative think-tank that advises state legislators on issues like education and healthcare reform. The organization also publishes a controversial index of how much municipal employees are paid. The policy forum has received support in the past from a network of state-level groups promoting conservative public policy, and both local and national media outlets have cited the lack of transparency in the groups’ own finances, which are reported to be linked to major Republican donors like the Koch brothers.Boyle says this weekend the Demboski staff will be drafting policy points and a campaign strategy for the weeks ahead.“As you know, the Assembly has a liberal majority on it, and I think we need some balance there,” Boyle added. “So I think we need a conservative mayor, and Amy’s going to provide that.”The Berkowitz campaign is also receiving support from Political Action Groups, though they are more parochial and traditional players in local politics. Anchorage labor and public employee unions have donated to the Berkowitz campaign, and the National Education Association’s Anchorage chapter is supporting him. The Alaska Democratic Party made robocalls and sent out emails to registered party members during the first phase of the election.“We’ll be contacting voters in a variety of ways,” said Travis Smith, communications director for the party, “phoning and door-knocking, for example.”The Berkowitz campaign disagrees with the claims about his record from Americans for Prosperity. Communications Manager Nora Morse said that during his time in the Legislature, Berkowitz was part of a bipartisan coalition that worked on budget solutions when oil was $9 a barrel.“I think that’s very interesting that Americans for Prosperity is playing in this mayor’s race, and the fact that they’re coming in claiming to care what Anchorage voters want, when really Anchorage voters are talking about, number one, public safety, the city budget, and public education,” Morse said by phone. “They haven’t talked about any of those issues, and that raises some red flags.”Candidates met Friday with the officials from the union representing the Anchorage Police Department, who have so far not made any endorsements in the mayor’s race.Correction: The original version of this story cited Matt Johnson as Amy Demboski’s campaign manager.last_img read more

Trumps Suggested Import Tax Would Mean Americans Pay For That Wall

first_imgChristian Torres/APThe Trump administration is considering alternative ways to pay for the border wall, backtracking on the president’s oft-repeated promise that Mexico would foot the bill.A White House spokesman said one idea taking shape is to apply a 20 percent tax on imports from Mexico, as well as other countries with which the U.S. has a trade deficit. That would effectively saddle U.S. consumers with a significant portion of the wall’s cost, estimated at $15 billion or more.Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer did not offer details about how the import tax would work, but he said it could be adopted as part of comprehensive tax reform.Trump discussed the plan during a meeting in Philadelphia with congressional Republicans.Even floating this idea amounts to a remarkable capitulation by the new president, who was insisting as late as Wednesday that Mexico would bear the cost of the border barrier.Mexico’s refusal has already created friction between the countries. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto abruptly canceled a planned meeting with Trump next week, a decision that the U.S. president tried to explain as mutual.Mexico is one of America’s top trading partners, with more than $500 billion worth of goods flowing across the Southern border each year. Spicer argued that adding a 20 percent surcharge to imports from Mexico would quickly cover the cost of the wall.“This is the beginning of this plan to make sure it’s done right,” Spicer told reporters traveling aboard Air Force One. “It clearly provides the funding and it does so in a way that ensures that the American taxpayer is wholly respected.”The suggestion drew a swift rebuke from at least one Republican senator, South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham, who said it would be a bad idea to do anything that raises the price of Corona, tequila or margaritas. (Graham’s family used to own a bar.)Border security yes, tariffs no. Mexico is 3rd largest trading partner. Any tariff we can levy they can levy. Huge barrier to econ growth /1— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) January 26, 2017 Simply put, any policy proposal which drives up costs of Corona, tequila, or margaritas is a big-time bad idea. Mucho Sad. (2)— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) January 26, 2017House Speaker Paul Ryan’s office contended the White House and Congress were on the “same page.”“We have been and continue to be on the same page about tax reform that supports American jobs and American goods,” Ryan aide AshLee Strong told NPR’s Susan Davis.That’s because Ryan has proposed a “border adjustment” tax that would affect the “corporate tax rates applied to goods and services consumed in the U.S. but not applied to goods and services exported,” a Republican Capitol Hill source added.The plan would allow corporations to subtract export sales when calculating their tax bill, but companies would not be allowed to deduct the cost of imports. Under the current tax code, export sales are taxed, and import costs are deductible.If Trump is embracing Ryan’s plan, it would be a reversal. Just 10 days ago, he told the Wall Street Journal that a “border adjustment tax” was “too complicated.”“Anytime I hear border adjustment, I don’t love it,” Trump said. “Because usually it means we’re going to get adjusted into a bad deal. That’s what happens.”Many unanswered questions about proposed “border adjustment” tax— JohnCornyn (@JohnCornyn) January 26, 2017Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn said the plan raises questions.Spicer brushed aside suggestions that much of the cost would be passed on to American consumers who purchase Mexican-made goods. He argued that cost would be outweighed by the reduction in illicit border crossings.“What it’s going to do is lift up the wages of American workers,” Spicer said. “Right now we’ve got an influx of cheap labor. It’s going to put the American consumer back, net-net, to make sure that American workers get lifted up as well.”Spicer also suggested that building the border wall would produce savings elsewhere in the federal budget.“I think we’re going to save additional money that we would have had to spend on tracking down illegal immigrants and on immigration,” Spicer said. “So it’s actually a huge win for the American taxpayer and for American security when you look at the kind of plan that’s coming to fruition right now.”Trump actually wants to increase spending on immigration enforcement. In addition to the wall, he has ordered the hiring of 15,000 new Border Patrol and immigration officers and the construction of new detention facilities.Copyright 2017 NPR.

Business Leaders Oppose License To Discriminate Against LGBT Texans

first_img Share Susan Risdon/Red Media Group via NPRMike Hollinger of IBM joined a group of business leaders at a news conference on the steps of the capitol in Austin, Texas. The business leaders oppose the so-called religious refusal laws currently under consideration in the Texas Legislature.In Austin, Texas, a new raft of anti-LGBT legislation is working its way through the state legislature. One of the bills would allow state licensed professionals of all stripes — from doctors and pharmacists to plumbers and electricians — to deny services on religious grounds. Supporters say the legislation is needed to protect religious freedoms. But opponents call them “religious refusal bills” or “bigot bills.”Last week, on the steps of the capital in Austin, business leaders gathered to announce their opposition to the series of bills which they say would sanction discrimination against their LGBT employees.Mike Hollinger, an executive at IBM, tried to warn the legislature against the legislative efforts. “I’m proud to speak on behalf of IBM, a company with an 80-plus year legacy in Texas and a workforce of around 10,000 here in the Lone Star State. This license to discriminate will damage the state’s reputation and prevent people, including IBMers from wanting to live and work here.”A coalition of more than 1,000 Texas and national businesses called Texas Competes are also lobbying against the bills. It includes many of the nation’s biggest tech companies including Facebook, Google and Amazon.One of the bills, Senate Bill 17, specifically allows licensed professionals to discriminate based on sincerely held religious beliefs. Dale Carpenter, a constitutional law professor at the Dedman School of Law at Southern Methodist University, says the bill would allow licensed service providers to discriminate without worrying that their state occupational license might be threatened by their actions.Carpenter says the list of professionals included is prodigious: “There are literally hundreds of them in Texas … They include athletic trainers, doctors, nurses, surgeons, dentists, orthodontists, physical therapists, counselors of all kinds, accountants, engineers, landscape architects, real estate agents, tax consultants, air conditioning repair personnel, electricians, on and on and on it goes.”While the legislation might be designed mainly for Texas Christians to withhold their services from LGBT people, Carpenter says it would allow discrimination against anyone as long as the motive is a sincerely held religious belief.One person’s discrimination…The word “discrimination” gets used by both sides of this political fight.Supporters of the legislation say this is about safeguarding religious freedoms and ensuring that those who wish to exercise these freedoms aren’t discriminated against as a consequence. Jonathan Saenz is the president of Texas Values, a religious liberty organization which is lobbying in favor of passage. He says the legislation has broad support.“Texans are very concerned about the attacks on religious freedom and people of faith, particularly people that believe in marriage and sexuality as it’s defined in the bible,” Saenz says. “Senate Bill 17 just makes it clear that you can’t force someone to choose between their work and their faith. You can’t use the government to punish people that have to get a certain license or authorization just because of some of the personal religious beliefs that they have.”Tough for businessFor Republican legislators, this type of legislation puts them in a tough spot. Two years ago a bathroom bill, which singled out transgender public school students and other transgender Texans, tore the Texas GOP in two.The business community and chambers of commerce hated it. San Antonio was about to host the NCAA Men’s Final Four Basketball Tournament and the city was terrified the NCAA would pull out if the bathroom bill became law. It passed the Senate but then Speaker of the House, San Antonio Republican Joe Straus, killed it.A hero to business but loathed by his party’s powerful evangelical wing, Straus retired from politics not long after.Tourist industry and rural residentsThe convention and travel industries in particular tend to be the canaries in the coal mine when it comes to these types of bills. Phillip Jones, president and CEO of VisitDallas, says they’d be the first to keel over if the controversial ‘religious refusal’ legislation passes.“One in ten trade shows held in America are held in Texas. I’ve got a hundred million dollar’s worth of business that’s currently at risk, if this legislation were to pass,” says Jones. “Based on our experience with the bathroom bill they have a provision in their contracts that spells out that, should Texas pass any form of discriminatory legislation, then they can cancel their meeting in Texas or in Dallas without any penalties.”Rural communities are most vulnerable if doctors or pharmacists refuse service because alternatives are usually scarce or non-existent. Moreover, opponents of the legislation worry that municipal non-discrimination ordinances in Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, El Paso and San Antonio could be rendered unenforceable if the bill were to pass.SMU’s Carpenter says that other than the city ordinances, state law provides no safeguards. “It is already perfectly legal to decline service and to do so on a discriminatory basis in the state of Texas,” he says. “In fact the law in the state of Texas is that rights of conscience are already protected against state regulation for private citizens and professionals and businesses.”Carpenter says that federal civil rights laws passed in the 1960s provide less protection from discrimination than many might imagine. Race, religion and national origin are protected from discrimination in public accommodations only, such as restaurants, hotels and theaters.Carpenter believes that, given the already generous legal right to discriminate in Texas, the latest round of bills are merely a way for the Republican-dominated legislature to demonstrate to its evangelical base that they’re on the ball.Copyright 2019 NPR.

Dont Toss That Busted Toy Just Yet—Grab a Multimeter

first_imgThe first time I used a multimeter was in my younger years. I was really into remote-controlled cars—but you couldn’t just buy one and start driving. You had to buy a kit and a controller separately and put the whole thing together. My car was powered by a battery and an electric motor instead of the more complicated gas-powered ones. So whenever things weren’t working, I had to figure out how to use a multimeter to measure the voltage at different points in the car.Of course there are many other times the multimeter came in handy, but let’s just say that it’s a great tool. We also use the multimeter in introductory physics labs. Many students have zero experience with these devices, but that’s OK. I’m going to give you (and them) a super basic introduction to measuring electric current and the electric potential difference (usually called “voltage”).Let’s start with the simplest circuit. A battery, two wires, and a light bulb.Rhett AllainThis is pretty straightforward. Electric current comes out of the positive end of the battery (OK, actually it comes out of the negative end) and goes through the bulb and then back to the battery. That’s your electric circuit. Simple.But now we want to measure the electric current. How do we do that? That’s where the multimeter comes in. It’s “multi” because it does multiple things. It can measure both the current and the voltage. Many multimeters can do even more than that—measuring resistance, capacitance, and other stuff. But let’s get to it. The key to measuring electric current is that the multimeter has to be in the path of the current. You actually have to take apart your circuit and insert the multimeter in the path.You also need to be sure you use the correct settings and the correct plugs. Most multimeters will have a switch to put it in “ammeter” mode and special plugs to measure the electric current. Here, check out this extremely old analog meter (which is awesome) next to a modern digital multimeter.Rhett AllainNotice that both of these use the same plugs for voltage and current, but you still need to have the setting on something that reads a current. For the old meter on the left, I have it set to a maximum current of 750 milliamps and the digital is at a max current of 200 mAmp.Now let’s add this to the battery-bulb circuit. Here’s what that looks like.Rhett AllainLet’s follow the wiring to make sure we know what’s going on. Oh, a quick warning. This is an older analog meter. It only measures the electric current in one direction. If you hook it up the wrong way, the needle will get “pegged” at the zero mark—that’s not useful and it could possibly bend the needle. Just be careful.If you start from the positive end of the battery, the wire goes to the light bulb and then out of the light bulb. Next, it goes to the positive terminal of the multimeter and then the negative terminal goes to the negative end of the battery. Just like a plain battery and bulb circuit, this makes a complete loop. You could just consider the ammeter as a wire that connects the bulb to the battery. It’s a wire that also measures current.Fine. Then how do you measure voltage? You have to hook up the multimeter in a different way to measure voltage. Here is something to remember: You measure the voltage across something—you measure the current through something. So, to measure voltage you need to put the two probes from the multimeter on the two sides of the thing you want to measure. Let’s measure the voltage across the bulb. I’ll put the circuit back the way it was (before measuring the current) and then touch one probe to each side of the bulb. Here’s what it looks like.Rhett AllainIf you follow the wires for this setup, you can see that the original circuit is still there. The wires from the multimeter don’t have to break up the circuit but are instead just touching the two ends of the bulb. Oh, be sure to switch the multimeter settings to read voltage instead of current.It’s important to realize that the voltage reading and the current reading are hooked up in different ways. In fact, this is the No. 1 mistake that students make when using this instrument. Here’s what happens. They want to measure the current, so they have all the settings and plugs on the multimeter set up for current. Then they touch one wire from the multimeter to one side of the bulb and the other wire to the other side (the way you would use it to measure voltage). Blam-o. You just blew a fuse. Why? With the multimeter set up across the bulb, you have put the meter in parallel with the bulb. Since the ammeter setting has low resistance you get a BUNCH of electric current going through the meter. You are essentially measuring the electric current through a wire with nothing in it. Of course the meter can only handle so much current, so you blow a fuse.Now the meter doesn’t work. You need to replace the fuse. At least you didn’t mess up the whole multimeter—that would be bad.More Great WIRED StoriesA scary map shows how climate change will alter citiesStrava has a new way to build routes with a finger swipeWhat happens if Russia cuts itself off from the internetRide with the guy who builds roller coasters in his yardCaptain Marvel has the best movie site since Space Jam👀 Looking for the latest gadgets?

WeWontBuildIt Amazon workers demand company to stop working with Palantir and take

first_imgOn Monday, a group of Amazon employees sent out an internal email to the We Won’t Build it mailing list, calling on Amazon to stop working with Palantir. Palantir is a data analytics company, founded by Peter Thiel, one of President Trump’s most vocal supporters in Silicon Valley, has a strong association with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Last year in June, an alliance of more than 500 Amazon employees had signed a petition addressing to CEO Jeff Bezos and AWS head Andy Jassy to abandon its contracts with government agencies. It seems that those protests are ramping up again. The email sent to employee mailing lists within Amazon Web Services demanded that Palantir to be removed from Amazon’s cloud for violating its terms of service. It also called on Amazon to take a stand against ICE by making a statement establishing its position against immigration raids, deportations and camps for migrants at the border. They have also demanded to stop selling its facial recognition tech to the government agencies. In May, Amazon shareholders had rejected the proposal to ban the sale of its facial recognition tech to government. With this they had also rejected eleven other proposals made by employees including a climate resolution, salary transparency and other issues. “The world is watching the abuses in ICE’s concentration camps unfold. We know that our company should, and can do better,” the email read. The protests broke out at Amazon’s AWS Summit, held in New York, last week on Thursday. As Amazon CTO Werner Vogels gave a presentation, a group led by a man identified in a tweet as a tech worker interrupted to protest Amazon ties with ICE. Vogels was caught off guard by the protests but continued on about the specifics of AWS, according to ZDNet. “I’m more than willing to have a conversation, but maybe they should let me finish first,” Vogels said amidst protesters, whose audio was cut off on Amazon’s official livestream of the event, per ZDNet. “We’ll all get our voices heard,” he said before returning to his planned speech. According to Business Insider reports, Palantir has a $51 million contract with ICE, which entails providing software to gather data on undocumented immigrant’s employment information, phone records, immigration history and similar information. Its software is hosted in the AWS cloud. The email states that Palantir enables ICE to violate the rights of others and working with such a company is harmful to Amazon’s reputation. The employees also state that their protest is in the spirit of similar actions at companies including Wayfair, Microsoft and Salesforce where workers have protested against their employers to cut ties with ICE and US Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Amazon has been facing increasing pressure from its employees. Last week workers had protested on Amazon Prime day demanding a safe working conditions and fair wages. Amazon, which typically takes a cursory view of such employee outcry, has so far given no indication that it will reconsider providing services to Palantir and other law enforcement agencies. Instead the company argued that the government should determine what constitutes “acceptable use” of technology of the type it sells. “As we’ve said many times and continue to believe strongly, companies and government organizations need to use existing and new technology responsibly and lawfully,” Amazon said to BuzzFeed News. “There is clearly a need for more clarity from governments on what is acceptable use of AI and ramifications for its misuse, and we’ve provided a proposed legislative framework for this. We remain eager for the government to provide this additional clarity and legislation, and will continue to offer our ideas and specific suggestions.” Other tech worker groups like Google Walkout For Real Change, Ban Google for Pride stand in solidarity with Amazon workers on this protest.

Narrow escape from elephants for motorists

first_imgA Ladysmith resident came face-to-face with two male elephants at the Nambiti Game Reserve on Sunday morning.After spending the long weekend at Nambiti, she was heading back into Ladysmith for a big Easter lunch with the family. On the drive out, her and her fiance, who works on the reserve, had to stop at a ‘roadblock’ in the form of a large male elephant standing in the middle of the road, eating from a nearby tree.Another elephant was standing at the side of the road. The couple waited for roughly 20 minutes before the large bull moved off the road to get to the other side of the tree he was munching on. WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite The two nature lovers in the car looked on in awe and noticed that the large bull looked like he was going to push the tree over. Trees store all of their carbohydrates in their roots and in the bark, just like a carrot or potato, and an elephant knows this. What they do is push over a tree to partially uproot it. This enables them to get their tusks and trunk around the bottom roots. They can actually flip a tree upside down in order to feed on the softer roots and strip the bark from the bottom of the tree.Elephants do push trees over to get to the top leaves, but more often it is to get to the soft roots which store the energy-giving carbohydrates.Since the residents were already running late, they decided to drive past the elephants. It should be noted that this was done under the supervision of a trained game worker and should not be attempted by just any member of the public!Elephants are not always dangerous, but they have been known to attack cars and people.last_img read more
