Force India were accepted as a new mid-season entry to the Championship.Force India, whose new control has gone to a consortium led by Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll, has been renamed as Racing Point Force India.Otmar Szafnauer has been appointed principal, with former deputy principal Bob Fernley departing.The International Automobile Federation (FIA) released a statement saying Force India drivers Mexican Sergio Perez and Frenchman Esteban Ocon will keep their points.Force India were previously sixth in the championship.Also read – Lawrence Stroll-led investors bail out Force India, ending Vijay Mallya’s reign”The Sahara Force India F1 Team has accepted its exclusion from the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship with immediate effect…and forfeits all Constructors’ Championship points,” the FIA said.”The joint administrators…have completed the sale of the business and its assets to Racing Point UK Limited, the investment consortium led by Lawrence Stroll and the teams senior management.”Force India, co-owned by financially troubled Indian magnate Vijay Mallya, went into administration at the end of July with a rescue deal announced on Aug. 7.While that secured the survival of the team, legal complications led to speculation they might be unable to race at Spa this weekend.Media reports indicated that while Stroll had purchased the physical assets, including the cars and factory, ownership of the entry that confers the right to race had yet to be transferred.advertisementREAD – Vijay Mallya ‘devastated’ to lose control of Force India Formula One teamThe old team’s exclusion from the championship will also carry a significant financial cost for the team and a bonus for others, with prize money calculated by the championship standings over several seasons.”I am very pleased that a strong, positive outcome has been reached and welcome the mid-season entry of Racing Point Force India,” said FIA president Jean Todt.”Creating an environment of financial stability in Formula One is one of the key challenges faced by the sport,” added the Frenchman.”We have a situation now that safeguards the future for all of the highly-talented employees, and will maintain the fair and regulated championship competition for the second half of the season.”Szafnauer said the agreement was the start of a new chapter for a Silverstone-based team that has been through many incarnations since starting out as the now-defunct Jordan.”Just a few weeks ago, an uncertain future lay ahead, with more than 400 jobs at risk,” said the Romanian-born American.”Now the new team has the backing of a consortium of investors, led by Lawrence Stroll, who believe in us as a team, in our expertise and in our potential to achieve success on the track.”(With Reuters inputs)

Connie LeGrande is a Cree performer who does some throat singing.Kathleen MartensAPTN NewsThe Indigenous Music Awards (IMA) aren’t backing down after an accusation of cultural appropriation between Indigenous nations.The organization said in a news release Tuesday the nomination of throat-singing Cree artist Connie LeGrande will not be changed despite complaints from an Inuit women’s collective.“Since the request of the Arnaqquasaaq Collective was stated, the Manito Ahbee Festival has proceeded with due diligence,” a statement from IMA emailed to APTN News said.“Engaging the Indigenous Music Awards Committee, the Elders’ Committee, Inuit representatives and the Board of Governors, who made the decision that the nomination will stand for the artist in question – based on the current rules and regulations.”The statement noted LeGrande’s nomination is for Best Folk Album and not Best Inuit, Indigenous Language or Francophone Album.But the collective isn’t upset with the category – just who is performing the music.“Throat-singing is an Inuit custom,” Kathleen Ivaluarjuk Merritt, a musician also known as “Iva”, said Monday.She said the collective asked LeGrande “respectfully” in private conversations on Facebook to decline from throat singing.Iva and other artists threatened Monday to boycott the upcoming awards ceremony in Winnipeg unless they receive an apology, and LeGrande’s nomination is rescinded.“How can you have Indigenous Music Awards without Inuit?” asked Inuk throat singer Kelly Fraser.Fraser said going public with their concerns came after months of trying to resolve the situation with the IMA behind the scenes.This is really important.Cultural appropriation can occur between Indigenous nations.We need to support each other in the reclamation of our cultures without repeating the colonial approach.Let’s elevate, not appropriate. @IMAs https://t.co/2I7QVezmcQ— Jesse Wente (@jessewente) March 30, 2019Throat-singing duo PIQSIQ, based in Yellowknife, also pulled its album from the awards.“We look forward to submitting future work once our concerns of cultural appropriation are taken seriously and policies are in place to prevent it from happening again,” the group tweeted with the hashtags “#inuitthroatsinging is for #inuitreclamation.”The IMA confirmed in its statement it would develop a policy on cultural appropriation and add an Inuit representative to the board.“We have been presented with a very difficult task, to decide if an individual artist is over stepping creative boundaries that some feel is not her right,” the statement added.“We don’t presume to agree or disagree on this matter at this time, as it requires great reflection, ceremony and discussions on how we move forward in a good way, to ensure that we as Indigenous people uphold our teachings, and do not provide a platform for negativity and separation.”IMA said it “presents itself with transparency” yet declined to answer specific questions.“We have not dismissed this matter in any capacity,” it noted in the statement.“We recognize the importance of building representation and programming that shares common values.”Both Fraser and Merritt declined to comment further Tuesday.A spokeswoman for Six Shooter Records, which represents a variety of Inuk artists including collective member and throat singer Tanya Tagaq, said there may be more to come.“I will be in touch if/when Tanya is available to chat (and/or if she or the larger group decide to issue a statement),” said publicist Emily Smart.Major event sponsor Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries said no one was available to answer questions on the issue.APTN is also a sponsor of [email protected]@katmarte

Canada is expected to promote nuclear energy at a forum in Denmark US restarts nuclear testing facility in Idaho after 23 years The move would mark a change in the climate strategy Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government unveiled just last December, which did not mention nuclear energy.In May, Canada is expected to promote nuclear energy at a forum in Denmark, seizing the opportunity to “place nuclear energy at the center of global efforts to fight climate change,” Natural Resources Parliamentary Secretary Kim Rudd said in a speech quoted by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).”The CEM (Clean Energy Ministerial) meets again in Copenhagen in May and we have ensured that nuclear energy has its place as part of a broad and high-level discussion on a global transition to a low-carbon economy,” she said. The Canadian department of natural resources was not immediately available for comment.Although nuclear energy does not emit greenhouse gases like the fossil fuels that cause global warming, it is controversial because of the toxic waste produced. © 2018 AFP Explore further Canada, the second largest producer of uranium, will boost its reliance on nuclear energy to reduce its carbon footprint and will encourage other nations to do the same, public broadcaster CBC said Thursday.

Study calls attention to cyclist-motorist collisions More information: Ashim Kumar Debnath et al, Factors influencing noncompliance with bicycle passing distance laws, Accident Analysis & Prevention (2018). DOI: 10.1016/j.aap.2018.03.016 This infographic shows factors influencing noncompliance with bicycle passing distance laws. Credit: QUT CARRS-Q Citation: Better roads essential for safer cycling (2018, April 6) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-04-roads-essential-safer.html Professor Haworth, director of QUT’s Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q), said other studies have revealed many bicycle-and motor vehicle crashes occurred while both were travelling in the same direction and involved rear-end and sideswipe collisions. This study has concluded lane widths and speed limits influence the distance drivers leave when passing, not cyclist characteristics.Poor road infrastructure a major factor in cyclist safetyMotorists more likely to engage in risky over-taking moves in high and low speed zones, as well as outside of peak hourMinimum passing distance compliance not influenced by cyclist characteristicsFunded by the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, the study reviewed 2000 overtaking events at sites in Brisbane, Rockhampton and the Gold and Sunshine Coasts. The overall rate of non-compliance with the minimum passing distance rule was around 16 per cent.”In Australia, sideswipe collisions between cyclists and motorists account for 14% of fatal bicycle crashes and passing too closely is the most common incident type, but it is too simplistic to blame motorists for poor driving,” said Professor Haworth, lead author of Factors influencing noncompliance with bicycle passing distance laws which has just been published in international journal Accident Analysis and Prevention.”Australia, like many other countries, has implemented laws to require a minimum distance when motor vehicles pass cyclists, but research into the factors influencing passing distances has produced inconsistent results.”Our study examined the factors influencing motorists’ compliance with the law in Queensland and was done in such a way that none of the motorists or the cyclists were aware of being studied.”As a result, this study captured the ‘true’ driving and riding behaviours during passing events. We found the likelihood of non-compliance was greater outside of peak hour as well as on higher (70-80 km/h speed limits) and lower (40 km/h) speed roads than 60 km/h roads, at curved road sections, and on roads with narrower traffic lanes.”Rider characteristics (age, gender, helmet status, clothing, type of bicycle, and individual vs group riding) had no statistically significant association with driver compliance.”Professor Haworth said the Queensland Government implemented a minimum passing distance rule in 2016 after a two-year trial. CARRS-Q has been conducting evaluations of it with the assistance of Bicycle Queensland and the RACQ.”For this particular study we captured video of cyclists and motorists involved in passing at a range of locations, including urban, suburban, regional areas and tourism hot spots,” Professor Haworth said.”The results showed compliance levels are influenced by the characteristics of motorists and the roadway, but not of the rider. The key finding is that cycling would be a whole lot safer for riders if road infrastructure was improved. This might mean more cycling lanes, for example, while stronger enforcement of the law by authorities would also help to further increase driver compliance.” Explore further Provided by Queensland University of Technology A QUT-led study of Queensland motorists and cyclists recommends that efforts to improve cyclist safety during overtaking events should focus on improving roadway infrastructure.
