Classic movie streaming service FilmStruck to shut down

first_imgLOS ANGELES, Calif. – The classic film-focused streaming service FilmStruck is shutting down after two years of operation. The service said Friday on its website that the last day of service will be November 29, and that it is no longer enrolling new subscribers.The joint venture between Criterion Collection and Turner Classic Movies offered a rotating selection of classic and hard-to-find arthouse film fare. The site, launched in November of 2016, provided a niche alternative to Hulu and Netflix, both of which have been criticized for lacking older films in their catalogues.The news was met with sadness among filmmaker and film fans online. “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson tweeted that “FilmStruck was too good to last.”FilmStruck was owned and operated by Turner, a subsidiary of AT&T’s WarnerMedia.last_img read more

Hard-hit Pennsylvania to sue drugmaker over opioid epidemic

PHILADELPHIA — The attorney general of Pennsylvania says he’s filing a lawsuit accusing a pharmaceutical giant of fueling the opioid epidemic.Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s office said it would announce details of the lawsuit Tuesday afternoon. Pennsylvania is one of the states hardest hit by opioid addiction.Shapiro’s office two years ago joined with dozens of other states to investigate companies that make and distribute opioid painkillers.Several Pennsylvania counties have already sued drugmakers, and a federal judge in Cleveland is overseeing more than 1,500 lawsuits filed by local governments, American Indian tribes and others against the opioid industry.The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says opioids were involved in a record 48,000 deaths in the U.S. in 2017.The Associated Press read more

BC mining code standards aims to eliminate disasters such as Mount Polley

VICTORIA – British Columbia’s Mines Minister Bill Bennett says mining code revisions introduced Wednesday include risk-protection requirements to ensure a disaster like the Mount Polley tailings pond collapse never happens again.In August 2014, a massive tailings dam breached at the mine in B.C.’s Cariboo region, sending 24 million cubic meters of mine waste and water into nearby rivers and lakes.“What we have done here, and what we’ll do in the next few months will prevent a major accident from happening with a tailings storage facility here in B.C.,” Bennett said at a news conference Wednesday. “I’m absolutely convinced of that.”He said the changes include design standards for tailings storage facilities tailored to conditions within the province and emphasize public and worker protection.An independent review of the disaster last year concluded that the tailings dam collapsed because the strength and location of clay underneath the dam was not taken into account during original designs.Bennett said the mining code updates can’t guarantee small leaks or spills from tailings facilities, but the changes include conditions and requirements that go beyond normal industry standards.B.C.’s chief inspector of mines Al Hoffman said the changes include seven mining code revisions.Among the changes are requirements in mine permit applications to declare performance objectives that include programs for prediction, identification and management of physical, chemical and other risks associated with tailings facilities and dams.“We’ve worked very hard on these code revisions and I think we’ve filled in a lot of those cracks,” said Hoffman. “So, it’s very unlikely it will happen again.”But Opposition New Democrat mines critic Norm Macdonald said he remains skeptical about the government’s intentions to monitor the mining industry.“Until we see some intent from government to hold companies to account for failures, we are exactly in the same place we’re been since the B.C. Liberals came to power,” he said. “What are the consequences for the company to date, nothing.”The Mount Polley gold and copper mine, owned by Imperial Metals Corp. (TSX:III), was cleared to resume full operations last month.B.C.’s Conservation Service, which has the power to recommend criminal charges, is conducting a review of the Mount Polley disaster.B.C. Mining Association president Karina Brino said there are always risk factors in industrial operations, but the goal to work towards a zero failure rate. by Dirk Meissner, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 20, 2016 2:18 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 20, 2016 at 6:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email B.C. mining code standards aims to eliminate disasters such as Mount Polley read more

UN and partners voice regret at delay in signing of DR CongoM23

The joint statement by the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy to the Great Lakes Region, Mary Robinson, his Special Representative for DRC, Martin Kobler, United States Special Envoy for the Great Lakes region and the DRC Russ Feingold, African Union Special Representative Boubacar Diarra, and European Union Senior Coordinator for the Great Lakes region Koen Vervaeke comes nearly a week after the group welcomed the announcement by the M23 that it is ending its bloody insurgency against the DRC Government.The talks in the Ugandan capital of Kampala were aimed at reaching a final and principled agreement that ensures the disarmament and demobilization of the M23 and accountability for human rights abuses.“The Envoys note that the parties have expressed no differences on substantive points within the draft document. However, agreement on the format has not yet been reached. Despite a change in the military situation, it is important that there be a political conclusion to the dialogue,” said the statement. “The Envoys urge the parties to resolve the differences relating to the format of the document and to remain committed to a peaceful settlement of the conflict.“The Envoys further emphasize that any solution must allow the pursuit of accountability for those who have committed war crimes, crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, including those involving sexual violence and recruitment of child soldiers, and other gross violations of human rights.”Meanwhile, another senior UN official issued a statement today, calling for greater commitment and focus to “turn the tide” on conflict-related sexual violence in DRC. “Accountability for sexual violence is critical for deterrence and ultimately the prevention of these crimes,” said the Secretary-General’s Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict, Zainab Hawa Bangura.She noted the “unprecedented” measures announced by President Joseph Kabila to tackle the scourge, including his decision to appoint a Presidential Representative on Sexual Violence and Child Recruitment and his call for the creation of specialized chambers to prosecute international crimes.While the measures represent a greater commitment and focus to eradicate conflict-related sexual violence, “commitments must be turned to concrete action – action that can and must turn the tide on this unacceptable crime.”In light of the recent end to the conflict with the M23, the envoy urged Mr. Kabila to ensure that proper screening and vetting take place so that perpetrators of sexual violence and other egregious human rights violations are not integrated into the national security forces.The M23 – composed of soldiers who mutinied from the DRC national army in April – along with other armed groups, has clashed repeatedly with the FARDC. In the past year, the fighting has displaced more than 100,000 people, exacerbating an ongoing humanitarian crisis in the region which includes 2.6 million internally displaced persons and 6.4 million in need of food and emergency aid. read more

Making a Big Move to support local cancer care

After two of her closest friends were stricken with cancer, Ethna Bernat witnessed the difficult road to recovery.In a show of unity and support, the Brock employee was part of a group that banded together to drive the two friends to Hamilton for frequent treatments.“For one of my friends, it was an awful and painful process to get him there and back every single time,” said the associate administrative director in the Faculty of Education’s Concurrent Programs.It was an experience that resonated with Bernat, who has since thrown her support into a fundraiser benefiting Niagara’s local cancer centre.She is one of several Brock employees riding with the Brock Cyclones in the Big Move Cancer Ride on Sept. 9 at Club Roma in St. Catharines. The non-competitive cycling event features a 25-kilometre, 50-km or 100-km route. Proceeds from the fundraiser will support patients of the Walker Family Cancer Centre in St. Catharines with diagnostic care, treatment and education.Bernat stressed that people don’t need to be avid cyclists to join the event.“The first time I joined the Big Move was also the first time I had ever done a ride like this,” she said. “I did 50 kilometres on my old little mountain bike. I didn’t have a road bike or any special equipment. I still don’t have clips and pedals. I wasn’t fast, but I did it.”Karen Dancy, International Recruitment Officer in International Market Development, will be riding in event for the first time. She’ll be tackling her first 100-km route in honour of three of her grandparents who passed away from cancer.“There’s a statistic that says 2,500 people in Niagara are diagnosed with cancer every year — that really impacted me,” she said.This will be Elna Mayberry’s ninth time participating in the ride. The scheduling assistant in the Office of the Registrar said she cycles the 100-km route for the sweet treats given out along the way. “One of the volunteers makes the most delicious chocolate chip cookies every year. She’s usually at the 75-km support station, but I would ride 200 kilometres for her cookies,” she said.Support stations set up along each of the three route options will include snacks, music, water, portable washrooms and people cheering. A pasta lunch with salad and meatballs is served after the ride.“The event isn’t timed, so even if you don’t need a break you stop anyways,” said Mayberry. “I like to thank and chat with the volunteers I haven’t seen since last year. Plus the route is simply gorgeous. It’s nice to stop to take it all in.”Josh Sekel, Senior Project Manager and IT Consultant with Enterprise Solutions, has been cycling the 100-km route for three years and has raised more than $10,000. Last year, he was inducted into the Platinum Peddlers’ Club, which recognizes fundraisers who have gone above and beyond.“It’s 90 per cent thanks to Brock employees. The community is always so supportive of the event,” he said.Team Captain Karl Thorp, Senior Platoon Supervisor, and John Suk, former Chair of the Brock University Board of Trustees, are also part of the Platinum Peddlers’ Club. It was under Thorp’s leadership as team captain in 2016 that the Brock Cyclones were also inducted into the club, having collectively raised more than $50,000 over the years.There’s still time to join or donate to the Brock Cyclones. The event is also in need of volunteers. Visit the Big Move Cancer Ride website for more information.For those interested in easing into a longer ride than they’re used to, guided training rides take place at Rockway Community Centre in Lincoln every Thursday night. read more

2018 Big Ten Preview Maryland Terrapins

Location: College Park, Maryland 2017 Record: 4-8 (2-7 Big Ten) Head Coach: Matt Canada2018 Record: 3-1 (1-0 Big Ten)Record vs. OSU: 0-4What has happened thus far in 2018:Matt Canada took over as acting head coach following D.J. Durkin being placed on administrative leave for alleged abuse to players, which allegedly contributed to the death of offensive lineman Jordan McNair on May 29. Maryland started the season upsetting No. 18 Texas 34-29 by forcing three turnovers in the fourth quarter and scoring 10 points late to snatch the win away from the Longhorns. The following week, Maryland claimed an easy victory against Bowling Green 45-14, but then faltered the following week by getting blown out at home by unranked Temple 35-14. Last week, Maryland rebounded from its loss by opening up Big Ten conference play with an easy win over Minnesota 42-13. Impact Player:Senior running back Ty Johnson has been leading the way for the Maryland offense. In four games, Johnson has had 40 carries for 300 yards and two touchdowns. This gives Johnson an average of 7.5 yards per carry and two games of over 100 yards rushing against Bowling Green and Minnesota. Johnson is not the only threat in Maryland’s offense, but he is one of its most prominent players and should continue to have success as the season goes on. Strengths:Maryland’s strength has easily been its running game thus far in the season. Maryland has already had three rushers with over 100 yards rushing each. Freshman running back Anthony McFarland has emerged in the last couple of games as a forceful weapon for Maryland, already rushing for over 291 yards on only 27 carries. Against Minnesota, he rushed for 112 yards on six carries for two touchdowns, giving him an average of 18.7 yards per carry. Sophomore running back Tayon Fleet-Davis has also rushed for three touchdowns over the first four games of play. Weaknesses:Maryland has shown that it can be prone to bad losses, with a 35-14 home defeat to Temple. Though the Terrapins utilize the run game for most of the offense, they could use more from redshirt freshman quarterback Kasim Hill, who is throwing for 129 yards per game so far this season. For Maryland to be a major contender, it will have to bring more of a dual-threat offense to the table. read more

Hitachis three layers of mine haulage automation

first_imgFollowing extensive trials and tests at the Meandu coal mine in Australia, Hitachi’s mining truck haulage automation system will soon be applied commercially at mining customer sites. In 2012, Hitachi Construction Machinery Co Ltd says it “commenced development of an autonomous haulage system that will leapfrog over current market offerings.”The system combines technologies and expertise from throughout Hitachi Group Companies including automotive, communication, robotics, public transport and of course, mining equipment and fleet management. This system can be broken down into three layers of innovation.Naoto Sannomiya, Manager, Technical Marketing Support, International Operations, Mining Group at Hitachi Construction Machinery comments: “The first layer is the fleet management system (FMS) – the productivity layer. Wenco International Mining Systems’ revolutionary product, Wencomine, is fully integrated into Hitachi Autonomous Haulage System. It acts as the primary system for head office, and its intuitive interface supports the operator in managing multiple haulers with simple navigation of drag and drop.”The second layer is the traffic control system (TCS). The DNA of Hitachi’s TCS is shared with one of the busiest train systems in the world: the Tokyo metropolitan. Averaging about 770,000 commuters a day, this system provides uncompromising accuracy, safety and efficiency. “This technology is embedded into Hitachi’s TCS which connects designated points, creates the haul route, divides it into sections, and sends specific instructions to each vehicle. Ever-changing haul road designs can also be quickly surveyed and adapted into the haulage network with this system.”The third layer of this system is the vehicle intelligence itself. An autonomous truck contains a built-in computer network which receives sectioned haul route information, known as “permitted segments”, from the TCS. The truck then drives within these segments, sticking to the designated route with a margin of error spanning mere centimetres. As the truck approaches the end of a permitted segment, it sends a request to the TCS for information on the next segment. If the information is provided the truck continues, but if the information is not provided the truck will come to a controlled stop at the end of the permitted segment; this is called Exclusive Permission Control. By limiting constant communication between the truck and the FMS, Hitachi’s autonomous technology is able to control up to 100 vehicles under the one system.These three core layers operate on an infrastructure consisting of a RTK-GNSS (Real Time Kinematic Global Navigation Satellite System), Wi-Fi network, and a server. To ensure seamless communication throughout a site, multiple repeater stations are installed additional to the RTK-GNSS base station.“Hitachi’s autonomous technology provides a flexible, accurate and consistent transport system, and its spin of products also supports manned hauler operations in surpassing their safety and productivity targets.”last_img read more

Opinion Ireland has no real plan to deal with the law and

first_img FRIDAY’S THREATENED ACTION by approximately 12,700 gardaí, sergeants and inspectors is unprecedented.  So far, media analysis of the proposed strike has focused on the industrial relations machinations between the AGSI, GRA and Department of Justice officials.  Much of the analysis and comment to date has also involved comparisons with the so-called ‘blue flu’ garda strike of May 1998.However, Friday’s proposed action is very different from the blue flu in a number of key respects and represents a fundamental threat to the security of the State and its citizens.To begin with, the blue flu involved less than half of all An Garda Siochána personnel.  Approximately 5,000 gardaí reported sick in May 1998 – leaving thousands of other gardaí, sergeants, inspectors and senior officers available for duty.  If Friday’s dispute goes ahead, roughly 98% of our entire policing service will be unavailable for duty.  This will leave a skeleton crew of a few hundred senior officers of Superintendent rank and above responsible for the security of the entire territorial area of the Republic of Ireland for a full 24 hours.A number of armed units such as the Emergency Response Unit (ERU) and Regional Support Units (RSU) have been exempted from the proposed action on Friday.  However, these units combined number a total of approximately 120 personnel.  Split over two 12 hour shifts on Friday, this would represent a total of around 60 armed personnel to cover the Dublin, Northern, Western, Southern, Eastern, South Eastern and South Western garda regions.  Such a force, so thinly spread, would be hard pushed to respond meaningfully to the threats posed by feuding drug gangs, dissident subversive groups or armed gangs that use the national motorway network to carry out serious crime in isolated rural communities. Source: RollingNews.ieIt has been suggested that a contingency plan might be drawn up to counter these threats, involving garda recruits from Templemore, reserve gardaí and Public Order Platoons (riot platoons) on standby from the Defence Forces.  Such an arrangement would not constitute a credible contingency plan and would fall very far short of the type of complex policing arrangements necessary for a first world country with a population of four million people.There is no contingency planIn the absence of uniformed gardaí on Friday, it is unlikely that the courts could function safely.  Neither would it be likely that serious offences such as homicide, sexual assault or rape could be investigated properly or in a timely and safe manner.  Aside from such concerns, there are a myriad of other policing tasks that would be compromised including traffic control and traffic management in the event of fatal road traffic accidents or other serious incidents.  Statistics tell us – sadly – that Friday nights are high risk times for all such incidents.There is also the plethora of other routine garda tasks that will be voided if Friday’s action goes ahead.  Who will invigilate the barring orders that protect tens of thousands of vulnerable women and children from abusive and violent family members for example?  There are countless such scenarios that need to be contemplated in order to draw up a credible contingency plan.In short, no contingency plan exists to deal with the vacuum in law and order that would exist if Friday’s action were to go ahead.  The Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Tanaiste and Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald must do everything in their power to prevent such a scenario from evolving over the next two days.  Apart from the risks posed to ordinary citizens and businesses by the absence of any meaningful civil power, there would be huge reputational damage to the Republic if the strike goes ahead.  This could become a major international news story that would go global.  With images of army troops on standby to police potential public order disturbances, Ireland would become the world’s first developed nation to resort to de-facto martial law in order to preserve law and order on our streets.Anti-social elements will make use of FridayFor a country that has endured so much austerity and that has achieved so much by way of recovery, such an international story would do a great deal of harm to Ireland’s corporate image abroad.Another way in which Friday’s threatened dispute differs from the blue flu of 1998 is in terms of its timing in the context of contemporary social media and other networking tools.  In May 1998, the blue flu was an eleventh hour intervention on the part of gardaí – a last minute action with little or no notice.Friday’s intervention – which occurs on the 55th anniversary of the foundation of the GRA at the Macushla Ballroom in Dublin – has been flagged for weeks in advance. The state’s stakeholders, including garda management, the Department of Justice and prominent members of the Cabinet, have been relatively mute about their contingency planning – no details are available at this late stage.  However, other stakeholders, including  the ‘ordinary’ criminal fraternity, dissident subversive groups, feuding armed drugs gangs and anti-social elements will have had weeks to prepare in detail for Friday’s gap in policing.  The potential for certain anti-social and criminal elements to mobilise social media to create serious public order incidents has been clearly demonstrated in other jurisdictions – as was the case with the London riots of 2011.An information campaign would workTherefore, unlike 1998 and the blue flu episode, Friday’s threatened 24-hour action represents a period of very high risk and uncertainty for the institutions of the State, its businesses and the lives of ordinary citizens.Irish people are law abiding and decent citizens.  I’m hoping that there are no serious incidents in the event of a disruption to policing on Friday.  However, the government does not have the luxury to be at best optimistic or at worst reckless with public safety this Friday.  At the very least, in the coming days the government ought to engage in a very vigorous information campaign across radio, TV, print and digital platforms to reassure the public and let them know what to do in the event of being the victim of a road traffic accident or a crime.In the absence of a credible contingency plan, at the very least, such an information campaign would advise certain businesses as to whether or not they should remain open this weekend and whether or not citizens should venture out and about in our city centres with no policing or civil power available to maintain basic law and order.Read more from Tom:Thanks to Brexit, the fragile peace in Ireland is under threat What’s missing in the gangland crisis?

Lewandowski reveals he is settled in Munich

first_imgBayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski says he’s settled at the club after failing to secure a move away from the German champions this summer.Lewandowski couldn’t keep his name out of the press this past summer, as he reportedly pushed for a transfer out of Bayern Munich. The Bavarians stood their ground, however, and didn’t entertain offers for their prolific striker. The club chiefs, Uli Hoeness and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge were eager to show that no player is bigger than the club.The Poland international hasn’t had the best start to the new season, though he remains the leading scorer for Bayern this season.It seems like Bayern’s decision to reject his request to leave the club against his wishes might backfire.The former Borussia Dortmund striker has assured the fans that he is very happy with life at the Allianz Arena, though. The Poland captain told Sport Bild that the team’s success is his priority, and he’s less concerned about personal accolades.rb leipzig, bayern munichReport: Bayern are held by Leipzig George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Bayern Munich was held to another draw, this time by RB Leipzig.Bayern Munich finds themselves in the unfamiliar position of sitting third in the…“I definitely feel very happy and well in Munich.”“I do my best for the team to win. But it’s still about the team because everyone works hard for success here. It’s not just me, not just Robert Lewandowski.”Lewandowski hired super-agent Pini Zahavi to facilitate a move away from Bayern earlier this year. Zahavi publicly announced that his client wanted to leave the club at the end of last season. Niko Kovac also confirmed that the former Bundesliga top scorer put in a transfer request, but the manager reaffirmed that Bayern had no intention to sell him.  Lewandowski reportedly wanted to seal a dream move to Real Madrid in the summer.last_img read more

US will test camerabased side mirror technology

first_img Auto Tech Car Industry Lexus More about 2019 Audi E-Tron 2 3:37 Something like this camera on the Japan-spec Lexus ES could replace the side mirror as we know it in the future. Lexus Technology often outpaces legislation and regulations, but finally, the US will examine and test camera-based side-mirror systems that replace the traditional reflective mirror.Reuters first reported on the NHTSA announcement on Tuesday and the agency said it plans to research driving behavior and how drivers execute lane changes with both traditional mirrors and the camera systems. Per regulation, all automobiles must have reflective side mirrors, though we’ve started to see cameras take over the rear-view mirror in a handful of vehicles. Backup cameras are also federally mandated technology in all new vehicles, too. In other markets, such as Europe or Japan, automakers have started to equip vehicles with camera-as-mirror technology. Lexus began selling the ES sedan in Japan last year with cameras replacing traditional side mirrors. Audi, too, has installed the technology on the E-Tron electric SUV for the European market. Here in the US, we’re regulated to standard mirrors. Feeds from the cameras are shown inside the car and replace the reflective images shown on a traditional side mirror.News of the research into allowing camera-based side-view mirrors follows a NHTSA announcement last year that will finally update headlight regulations in the US. Now, automakers will be free to develop what the federal agency called “adaptive driving beam” headlights.Automakers commonly market the technology as “matrix” headlights in other markets. The system is capable of running high beams as the default setting, but can also dim specific portions of the light when it recognizes another vehicle or pedestrian to keep from blinding them. As for the camera-based side mirrors, the public will have a chance to comment on the technology in the months to come. Check out how Audi implemented the technology in the gallery below.

Guatemalan expolice officers accused of assassinating Myrna Mack investigator to finally stand

first_imgGUATEMALA CITY – Three members of Guatemala’s now-defunctNational Police will face a criminal trial for the assassination of an agent who was investigating the murder of anthropologist Myrna Mack in the 1990s, according to a source in the Guatemalan justice system.Judge Miguel Ángel Gálvez told journalists that based on evidence presented by the state, the defendants will be accused of killing Miguel Mérida, who led the investigation into the case of Mack’s brutal attack and murder on Sept. 11, 1990.Ex-officers Julio David López, José Miguel González Grijalva and Alberto Barrios Rabanales will face charges that include conspiracy to commit murder.Mack was stabbed to death in the historical center of the city four days after a group of Mayan community representatives presented a report that documented the displacement of thousands of indigenous Guatemalans as a result of ongoing military repression at the time.Months earlier, Mack had published a study called “¿Dónde está el futuro?” (“Where is the future?”), based on her anthropological fieldwork of the brutal consequences for indigenous communities of the state’s military campaign. In 1993, military specialist Noel de Jesús Bateta was convicted of committing the actual murder.Mérida, who was in charge of investigating Mack’s death, was himself shot to death on Aug. 5, 1991 in downtown Guatemala City.Prosecutors will argue that Mérida’s murder was intended to obfuscate the investigation into Mack’s assassination.At a previous trial, two individuals who had been apprehended for Mérida’s death and forced to plead guilty were later declared innocent. One has since disappeared, and the other was assassinated.In 2003, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, based in San José, Costa Rica, ruled that Mack had been killed by Guatemalan government forces.Guatemala’s 36-year civil left more than 200,000 people dead and missing, according to the United Nations. A U.N. commission investigating crimes against humanity committed during the conflict blamed the military for 93 percent of the atrocities. Today, several cases are still pending decades after peace accords were signed in 1996 to bring an end to the conflict.
