X-Files star Gillian Anderson spoke up for orcas during SeaWorld’s online annual meeting this week.She will submited a question on behalf of PETA — which owns stock in the company in order to educate stakeholders and propose policy changes — asking SeaWorld to build coastal sanctuaries for the long-suffering captive orcas. Her question follows the National Aquarium’s announcement that it will be sending the eight dolphins there — one of whom was born at SeaWorld — to a seaside sanctuary.The full text of Anderson’s question for SeaWorld on behalf of PETA follows:“My name is Gillian Anderson, and I have a question on behalf of PETA. We thank SeaWorld for ending its orca-breeding program. This decision is a blessing for future generations of orcas, who will never endure the misery of life in a concrete tank. But for the 23 orcas who are still languishing at SeaWorld, it’s not enough.“Esteemed scientists and orca researchers have endorsed seaside sanctuaries in ocean coves, where orcas who have suffered for years at SeaWorld would be able to enjoy some semblance of a natural life and finally feel the ocean currents. In SeaWorld’s tanks, orcas break their teeth gnawing on bars and concrete, and they go insane from the reverberations of their sophisticated sonar off the tank walls. They’re separated from their families and forced to live in incompatible groups. Captivity is slowly killing them—and quickly killing Sea World’s profits. SeaWorld stock continues to plunge, earnings remain down, and visitors aren’t coming back.“SeaWorld must follow the lead of the National Aquarium, which is moving all eight of its dolphins — including 17-year-old Jade, who was born at SeaWorld Orlando — to a seaside sanctuary, a decision that has met with overwhelming public support.“Given the tide of public opinion against orca captivity, my question is: When will SeaWorld retire the orcas to protected sea sanctuaries and reinvent the park with attractions glorifying the ocean, rather than traumatizing its most intelligent inhabitants? Thank you.”PETA — whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment” — has owned stock in SeaWorld since the company went public in 2013 and asked questions at its annual meetings in 2014 and 2015. PETA withdrew this year’s shareholder resolution, submitted in December 2015, asking for an end to SeaWorld’s orca-breeding program after the company’s March 2016 announcement that it would do exactly that.

Chinese technology giant Huawei has yet to feel the full force of U.S. sanctions due to temporary exemptions and other uncertainties.Nonetheless, Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei says he expects no permanent relief because of the political climate in Washington. In an interview with The Associated Press, he also expressed confidence the company will thrive because it is developing its own technology.In May, the U.S. Commerce Department placed Huawei on its so-called Entity List. That effectively bars U.S. firms from selling it technology without government approval. The move escalates trade-war tensions with Beijing and risks dividing the world into two technology spheres as Huawei becomes more self-sufficient.Here’s a look at what’s behind the dispute and what it means.WHO’S AFFECTED?Huawei is the world’s leading provider of networking equipment, but it relies on U.S. components including computer chips. About a third of Huawei’s suppliers are American. Many are no longer permitted to sell to Huawei.Huawei’s smartphones, for example, will have to stop using the consumer-friendly version of Google’s Android operating system that comes with maps, music and other popular services. Without those services, smartphone makers such as Samsung would have the advantage.There are exceptions to the sanctions and questions about their scope.This week, the U.S. government extended by another 90 days a limited reprieve on a narrow list of products and services. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the main aim is to give smaller U.S. internet and wireless companies that rely on Huawei more time to transition away from reliance on its products. The grace period also allows U.S. providers to alert Huawei to security vulnerabilities and engage the Chinese company in research on standards for next-generation wireless networks known as 5G.Other exports to Huawei officially remain restricted, though practice differs. Those sanctions, for instance, don’t bar U.S. telecom companies from buying Huawei equipment. And analysts say U.S. semiconductor companies that supply Huawei have determined that the export sanctions don’t apply to a significant portion of their sales.WHAT’S BEHIND THE SANCTIONS?The U.S. defence and intelligence communities have long accused Huawei of being an untrustworthy agent of Beijing’s repressive rulers — though without providing evidence. The U.S. government’s sanctions are widely seen as a means of pressuring reluctant allies in Europe to exclude Huawei equipment from 5G. Washington says it’s a question of national security and punishment of Huawei for skirting sanctions against Iran, but the backdrop is a struggle for economic and technological dominance.China already has a policy seeking technological independence by 2025. Huawei is now likely to move toward making all components domestically. Earlier this year, Huawei released its own chip for next-generation smartphones and the first phone based on that chip. Recently, the company unveiled its own smartphone operating system it said can replace Android.WHO USES HUAWEI ANYWAY?While most consumers in the U.S. don’t even know how to pronounce Huawei (it’s “HWA-way”), its brand is well known in most of the rest of the world, where people have been buying its smartphones in droves.Huawei stealthily became an industry star by plowing into new markets, developing a lineup of phones that offer affordable options for low-income households and luxury models that are siphoning upper-crust sales from Apple and Samsung in China and Europe.That formula helped Huawei establish itself as the world’s second-largest seller of smartphones. Research firm IDC says Huawei’s shipments increased 8% to reach 58.7 million in the second quarter, though executives believe the company could have done better without the sanctions.RIPPLE EFFECTSThe U.S. sanctions could have unwelcome ripple effects in the U.S., given how much technology Huawei buys from U.S. companies, especially from makers of the microprocessors that go into smartphones, computers, internet networking gear and other gadgetry.The list of chip companies that supply Huawei includes Micron Technologies, Qualcomm, Qorvo and Skyworks Solutions.More than 52,000 technology jobs in the U.S. are directly tied to China exports, according to the Computing Technology Industry Association, a trade group also known as CompTIA.Frank Bajak And Michael Liedtke, The Associated Press

Opinion: ‘The British General Election changed everything’ The astonishing performance of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party has far reaching implications, not just within Britain but beyond, writes Owen Worth. By Owen Worth Jun 15th 2017, 6:30 AM Thursday 15 Jun 2017, 6:30 AM AT FIRST GLANCE the British General Election result might not appear that significant. A strategic error by the ruling party backfired, leaving them requiring support from the nearest ideological party to them in parliament in order to survive in office.Yet, the astonishing performance of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party has far reaching implications, not just within Britain but beyond.Since the end of the Cold War we have witnessed a significant increase in what can be termed “radical civil society”. Movements and groups that are transnational in objective and have looked to challenge the fabric of “globalisation” and the nature of “corporate” or “neoliberal” capitalism.Yet, whilst this new left has flourished in terms of its protest politics, it has not managed to convert this mobilisation at the political level, particularly within big influential core states.Jeremy Corbyn represents the very heart of this new leftThe fact that his campaign drew so much attention from all corners of the world is testament to that.As many opponents have been quick to argue, Corbyn did not “win” this election. Labour’s resurgence might equally be down to May’s dreadful campaign as much as the Corbyn factor, but two significant aspects occurred that suggest something more profound. They are also inter-related.The mobilisation of the young vote that overwhelmingly backed Corbyn was a significant development of the election. The increase of up to 30% of turnout for the age groups of 18-30 has shown that this new left has gained significant traction.The second was that Corbyn managed to make gains despite the huge onslaught levelled against him by Fleet Street. The printed press has long played a pivotal role in British elections. The Sun for example has backed every “winner” since 1974.The ferocity of the attacks of Michael Foot, Tony Benn and Neil Kinnock were such that New Labour prioritised the backing of owner Rupert Murdoch in order to gain power.Re-engaging with progressive politics Source: Shutterstock/Victoria M GardnerCorbyn’s re-engagement with socialism and new with progressive politics saw the Sun, Mail, Express et al unleash succession after succession of smear attacks that would have derailed preceding campaigns.Yet, the decline of print circulation and growth of new media has seen new avenues where the narratives from Fleet Street can be challenged and contested. The long Murdoch/Rothermere influence might just – it seems – be slipping.The other factor for the Corbyn team has to be their position within the parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) itself. The refusal to serve in the shadow cabinet by many members of the PLP, combined with the vote of no confidence that led to his second election last summer, left Corbyn with a very difficult job in parliament. However, it also has to be said that he did not help himself in this regard.His inability to offer a coherent response to Brexit in parliament threatened to derail his support base. The multicultural, internationalist stance taken by a large bulk of his support were disappointed in the weak approach taken over Article 50.Needs to build on the euphoriaYet, the open, inclusive alternative approach to Brexit outlined in the manifesto contrasted with to the narrow jingoist “hard Brexit” of the Conservatives seemed to pacify these concerns. What the Corbyn team needs to do now is to build on this moment of euphoria and on the successful manifesto put forward in order to consolidate its position.Another concern with Corbyn is that whilst there has been no end of advice and suggestions from the field of economic, politics and social policy he has not acted on them. Now he is in a more secure position, it is time that these are engaged with in far greater depth.The vultures will continued to circle to condemn him and there are several that will continue to see this as a flash in the pan and of no lasting significance. For those that are serious about building a challenge to the dynamics of neoliberal capitalism this moment must be seen as a change to act.Owen Worth is a Senior Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Limerick and a Co-Director of the Conference of Socialist Economists (CSE).‘Some parents have to open the coffin every two hours to put in ice-packs so remains stay cool’>Column: ‘It’s not fair to ask the public to subsidise uneconomic wind farms’> Short URL https://jrnl.ie/3443961 Share147 Tweet Email Owen Worth Lecturer in International Relations, UL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 242 Views 47 Comments

Un kiwi de Nouvelle-Zélande égaré… en Russie ?Les services environnementaux néo-zélandais enquêtent sur des rapports en provenance de Russie, faisant état de la présence mystérieuse d’un kiwi – l’oiseau emblématique de la Nouvelle-Zélande – dans une localité russe près de la Mer Noire. Canular ou réalité ?Endémique de l’état insulaire de Nouvelle-Zélande, incapable de voler, rare et protégé, le kiwi, avec son long bec caractéristique et ses ailes atrophiées, ne risque guère d’être rencontré ailleurs que sur sa terre natale. C’est pourtant dans un jardin du port russe de Sotchi, au bord de la Mer Noire, qu’un de ces oiseaux aurait été observé durant trois jours, selon les médias locaux. Un voyage de 16.000 kilomètres qui étonne les zoologistes à plus d’un titre.À lire aussiL’effrayante attaque d’un crabe de cocotier sur un oiseau”C’est une histoire si étrange… Je suis abasourdi ! Cela me déconcerte, car le kiwi est nocturne et très timide, et je n’ai jamais entendu parler d’un marché noir sur cet oiseau. Et si vous ne savez pas comment vous y prendre, il peut être très agressif”, explique Paul Kavanagh, directeur du Queenstown Kiwi Birdlife Park.Les autorités portuaires russes estiment qu’il est peu probable que l’animal soit arrivé par bateau, car les contrôles sont stricts. Surveillé par des spécialistes locaux, l’oiseau est également l’objet d’une enquête des services environnementaux de Nouvelle-Zélande, soucieux de préserver les quelque 72.500 kiwis vivant encore, mais toutefois échaudés par de précédents canulars sur ce sujet.

Load More Imperial Pacific adds to Board of Directors as regulator looks to impose US$375,000 fine for late license fee payment Calls for 10% gaming tax renewed as report reveals Imperial Pacific tax payments of just US$21,000 in 2019 RelatedPosts Imperial Pacific pays remaining US$10.5 million balance on annual license fee Imperial Pacific International Chairman Mark Brown says the company remains on track to meet its deadlines for completion of Imperial Pacific Resort, despite being forced to lay-off staff and reduce operations in the wake of the devastating Typhoon Yutu that struck Saipan last month.Responding to inquiries from Inside Asian Gaming, Brown – who returned to his former position with the company in October just nine months after previously stepping down – insisted that “timelines, as long as there’s no other major disaster, will all be kept.” Explaining IPI’s long-term plans in more detail, having earlier this year had its 31 August 2018 deadline for completion of Imperial Pacific Resort extended for two-and-a-half years until 28 February 2021, Brown added that “construction still continues to move forward and the Casino Control Commission is well aware of our schedule.”The immediate focus, he said, is on completion of the facility’s Beach Resort hotel – a separate VIP building along the beach front that includes 15 Paul Steelman-designed villas. Once done, work will move back to the resort’s main tower and completion of its 324 suites.However, Brown re-iterated that IPI was left with little choice but to cut back on staff levels for the time being as Saipan continues its recovery from the impact of Yutu.“Because of Typhoon Yutu, we are seeing a dramatic loss of business and staffing levels need to be adjusted,” he told IAG.“The island is coming back as much as it can and some flights are starting to return this coming week. But our staffing levels, as it’s affecting the entire island, had to be brought back in line for us to move forward and be successful.”

We’ll have to wait until we can test a Galaxy Book S to say for sure. But in the meantime, if long battery life is your most important laptop trait, here’s what the Galaxy Book looks like — again, on paper for now — compared with our current longest-battery-life laptop, the excellent LG Gram 15.

Battery life in the Asus NovaGo and HP Envy x2 (both tested in 2018) ran about 12 hours each. Excellent, but not the 20-plus hours promised. These systems also felt sluggish compared with similarly priced Intel Windows laptops, and we occasionally ran into Windows/ARM compatibility problems with some software (rarely, but it did happen).

In fact, the other major product promises to beat the Note 10 by a mile in one very important category — at least on paper. The Samsung Galaxy Book S claims to offer 23 hours of active battery life, while the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus so far only promise “all-day” power for an average user, which probably means intermittent use during typical waking hours.

But, I doubt the ARM chip in the Galaxy Book can match a hefty Intel Core i7 in performance. That’s not a huge deal by itself, but in our previous testing of Windows-on-ARM laptops, the sluggish performance and occasional compatibility issues were noticeable enough to bother me.

When Bethesda finally detailed their DLC plans for Fallout 4, players were pleased to hear that there would be more content than initially planned, but they were understandably miffed that the price of the season pass would increase along with it. The question was whether or not the new, more ambitious, content would be worth the hefty $49.99 price tag. The biggest pack unveiled so far was Far Harbor, which Bethesda calls “the largest landmass” they’ve ever created for a DLC. But today, they revealed plans for an even more robust project, a 100% scale recreation of an entire state.While Rhode Island might be the smallest US state, it’ll definitely be the largest DLC location ever created in a virtual world.Bethesda’s Vice President of Public Relations, Howard M’aiq, unveiled the new DLC at a press conference this morning. “M’aiq knows many things,” stated M’aiq, “The Fallout 4 season pass will include two yet-unannounced DLC packs. First is Lonesome Rhode. The Sole Survivor will receive a mysterious message from fan-favorite character Ulysses, which will send the player on a dangerous quest through the Glowing Sea to the exotic land of Rhode Island. There, players will find a barren stretch of wasteland so desolate that not even feral ghouls will set foot upon its accursed soil.”“This forlorn expanse, populated solely by decaying lighthouses and neglected roadside tourist attractions, has been re-imagined by Bethesda as a part of the Fallout universe” M’aiq continued, “Players can scavenge every bit of scrap from Pawtucket to Weekapaug and use it to build a lonely castle from which they might rule a tiny empire of empty wind and sands, where even the clams have long since died of despair.”Also revealed at this morning’s press conference was the final piece of DLC for the game, To Del’ and Back. This recreates over one thousand miles of Interstate Highway 95, and spans the wasteland from The Commonwealth to the state of Delaware.Fallout fans have been clamoring for driveable vehicles, and this DLC will finally allow players to drive their choice of five different vehicles on a ruined highway that runs from Boston, through the blasted wastes of New Jersey, all the way down to the capital city of Delaware, Wilmington. There, the ancient wonders of The First State will be revealed.“M’aiq knows that players found more fusion cores than they needed in Fallout 4,” said M’aiq as members of the press gathered around a campfire made of cinder blocks in the woods behind Bethesda’s office, “So our vehicles will use fusion cores as fuel. Players who run out of fuel along the way will be able to walk back to New England in real time, scavenging for food and water, mile-by-mile, using the new survival mode.”“M’aiq knows things others do not,” added M’aiq, “Lonesome Rhode will launch for all systems in November, and To Del’ and Back will arrive in early 2017, but M’aiq cannot confirm or deny Elder Scrolls VI will launch by holiday 2017. M’aiq is tired now, go bother somebody else.”

Today, Snapchat’s cutesy ghost icon appears on more than 14 billion smartphones and tablets. Tomorrow, you might see it on a pair of high-tech glasses.Back in the spring, CNet published a post that kicked off that speculation. The company had gone on a bit of a hiring spree and by March had at least 12 employees with significant experience building wearables. Fast forward to today and Snapchat is now a member of the Bluetooth SIG.That seems like an odd move for a company that doesn’t have any skin in the hardware game, but Snapchat definitely does. Two years ago they bought Vergence Labs, a company that produced glasses with built-in cameras. They were called Epiphany Eyewear, and while some reports call them Google Glass-like, they were really just made to record POV video.Vergence even set up a website where Epiphany wearers could share their videos. Once they were acquired by Snapchat, that wasn’t really necessary any more.
