Correction Carbon FeeWashington story

first_imgSEATTLE – In a story Sept. 11 about a proposed fee on carbon pollution, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Shell pledged money to the initiative. Shell pledged money to oppose the initiative.A corrected version of the story is below:Take 2 for Washington state: Carbon fee on fall ballotVoters in Washington state will be asked this fall to do what state and federal leaders have been reluctant to: charge a direct fee on carbon pollution to fight climate changeBy PHUONG LEAssociated PressVoters in Washington state will be asked this fall to do what state and federal leaders have been reluctant to: charge a direct fee on carbon pollution to fight climate change.If the ballot measure passes, it will be the first direct fee or tax charged on carbon emissions in the U.S.Experts say it will prove states can take action even if the Trump administration doesn’t, and nudge other states to follow.Initiative 1631 would charge industrial emitters that use or sell fossil fuels in the state for every metric ton of carbon emissions. The fee starts in 2020 at $15 per metric ton and increases $2 a year. It stops in 2035 if the state meets its goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.About 100 emitters such as oil refineries, natural gas power plants and fuel distributors would pay the fee, raising roughly $1 billion in the first year.The oil industry is bankrolling the campaign to defeat it. Five oil companies — BP, Phillips 66, Chevron, Andeavor and U.S. Oil & Refining — have given the bulk of more than $11 million in cash raised by a committee sponsored by the Western States Petroleum Association. Shell pledged money early on to oppose the initiative it has called “flawed,” but said it won’t participate in the ongoing campaign to defeat it.Initiative sponsors represent a broad coalition of social justice, labour, tribal and environmental groups who have spent several years hammering out the details. Many opposed the carbon tax initiative voters rejected in 2016, partly because it didn’t do enough to invest in renewable energy or aid low-income and minority communities most impacted by pollution.If passed, money raised by the fee will pay for projects aimed at cutting pollution and protecting the environment, from solar power and zero-emissions vehicles to projects that store carbon and improve forest health.Proponents say polluters who release carbon emissions responsible for global warming should pay to address its impacts. Washington is seeing rising sea levels, more intense and frequent wildfires and floods and shrinking glaciers.The science “tells us that climate change is real, we’re causing it, it’s happening now and it will get worse,” said Mike Stevens, Washington director of The Nature Conservancy, the top donor with $1 million in support of I-1631. The campaign in support has raised about $4.3 million in cash.Opponents say the burden will fall to consumers in higher energy costs. The fee would add an estimated 14 cents per gallon of gasoline in the first year. Initiative backers say each person would pay $10 a month more, an amount Gov. Jay Inslee recently said was worth paying for clean air.Critics say it will put companies at a competitive disadvantage, expand government programs and special-interest spending without proof they will reduce emissions and provide too many exemptions to be effective.“If you exempt the largest polluters, how can you say you’re going after them? You’re not,” said Dana Bieber, spokeswoman of the No on 1631 campaign.The state’s only coal-fired power plant, the single largest source of emissions, is exempted from the fee. Initiative backers say the TransAlta plant in Centralia is already under a legal agreement to stop burning coal by 2025.There are also carve-outs for pulp and paper mills, aluminum smelters, aviation and marine fuels and energy-intensive industries such as steel and aluminum plants.Nick Abraham, spokesman for the Yes on 1631 campaign, said people want to see money going to solving the problem of climate change.The initiative calls for 35 per cent of revenues to be spent in the most polluted census tracts, setting aside money to help workers in the fossil fuel industry transition to new jobs and requires 10 per cent to be spent on projects approved by American Indian tribes.Carbon legislation has eluded the state despite many attempts. In March, the latest carbon tax proposal by Inslee, a Democrat, failed to win approval even though Democrats enjoyed a narrow legislative majority.“This is a really hard thing to do in any political context,” said Barry Rabe, a professor in the Gerald Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan.He said it’s unprecedented to see a ballot effort twice in two years. The question will be “can you repackage something that has struggled in Washington and actually put it over with public support?”California passed a cap-and-trade program in 2006 that limits emissions and allows polluters to buy and trade pollution credits. A coalition of Northeast states also has a cap-and-trade program that applies to power plants.Fawn Sharp, president of the Quinault Nation, whose tribe has been working to relocate its entire village on the Washington coast because of the rising sea level and tsunami threat, said it’s time for citizens to have a direct voice.“Elected officials know we’re in a crisis and there still seems to be a lack of the moral and political courage to make the necessary public policy decision to save and protect our resources, to save our planet and our health and safety,” Sharp said.____Follow Phuong Le on Twitter: read more

King Mohammed VI Donates $100,000 to US Peace Corps in Morocco

Rabat – The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Salaheddine Mezouar, presented at a ceremony Thursday in Washington, a $ 100,000 gift from King Mohammed VI to US Peace Corps in order to help the US agency to extend its reach in the kingdom.“His majesty the King has decided to give a donation to the Peace Corps to encourage it to continue its work and to thank the US body for all it does for the benefit of the Moroccan youth,” said Salaheddine Mezouar in a statement to Maghreb Arab Press agency (MAP) on the sidelines of a meeting dedicated to the celebration of the long partnership between the Peace Corps and Morocco.He also noted that the US Agency contributes to transmit values of positive participation in community life, solidarity and commitment to the common good of society. Speaking at the ceremony, which was attended by the Ambassador of Morocco to Washington Rashad Bouhlal and US ambassador to Rabat, Dwight L. Bush, the Deputy Director of the Peace Corps, Laura Chambers, welcomed the strength of the partnership with Morocco.“We are proud of the strong partnership with the kingdom of Morocco and we are extremely grateful for this generous donation,” Chambers said.Chambers has further noted that the Peace Corps has provided in 52 years “significant” contributions to Moroccan communities.The Peace Corps volunteers work in Morocco in various fields as English teachers, health educators, environmental specialists, assistants of small business development, water supply technicians in rural areas and training of young teachers.Each year the number of volunteers serving in the Peace Corps Morocco stands at around 200 people. The first volunteers came to Morocco in 1963 conforming to an agreement between the kingdom of Morocco and the United States.MWN with MAP read more

Renounce terror Government tells others on list

The Foreign Ministry says this indicates that the government’s counter-terrorism strategy of combating terrorism through better intelligence, specialised training, tighter legislation and closer counter-terrorism partnerships, combined with measures addressing the root causes of violence, is beginning to work“We hope that other groups and individuals make similar public commitments condemning violence and renouncing separatism in addition to other necessary measures. Then they too can be considered for de-proscription and join other formerly proscribed organisations, both in the North and South, who have successfully entered the democratic mainstream and are now working for the betterment of Sri Lanka,” the Foreign Ministry said. The Government today urged other groups and individuals banned in Sri Lanka over terrorism links to renounce separatism in addition to taking other necessary measures so they can be considered for de-proscription.The appeal came in a statement formally announcing the de-listing of eight organisations and 267 persons. Since the new Government came to power with a mandate for democracy, good governance, rule of law, accountability and reconciliation many listed groups made public statements expressing their commitment to a united, undivided Sri Lanka in global forums. Over the last six months, law enforcement and intelligence agencies have conducted a comprehensive and careful review of the proscribed organisations and individuals. The review process concluded that there was no intelligence or evidence justifying the listing of eight organisations and 267 persons. Groups that continue to espouse separatism, including eight organizations and 157 individuals, remain proscribed, the Foreign Ministry added. Sri Lanka proscribed 16 organisations and 424 individuals under Gazette Extraordinary No. 1854/41 on 21 March 2014 using powers under the United Nations Act No. 45 of 1968. The proscription was announced eight days before Western and Southern Provincial Council elections, which were held on 29 March 2014.The Foreign Ministry says the initial proscription process was conducted in haste and was not subject to a rigorous process of assessment and verification and many of the listed organisations had never condoned violence or terrorism. Some of the proscribed individuals were even dead at the time of proscription – including one individual who died 8 years prior to the proscription.United Nations Regulation No. 1, approved by Parliament in 2012, obliges the Government to review and update its list of proscribed organisations at least once a year. The new government, resolute in combatting terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, undertook a systematic review process in order to update the list of organisations. The Foreign Ministry said that as per Sri Lanka’s legal obligations, the Government will annually review and update the list of proscribed persons. As a result of this review, the Foreign Ministry says Sri Lanka’s law enforcement and intelligence services are now able to target their resources more efficiently and focus their energy on genuine threats improving the security of all Sri Lankans.

If the party, group or individual is not satisfied with the reasons provided by the Returning Officer, they can file an appeal against refusal of approval no later than the 45th day before Elections Day to a Magistrate of the magisterial district.Speaking with this media group on Wednesday, the A Partnership for National Unity and Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Campaign Manager, Amna Ally, explained that all plans have been completed and the coalition is fully prepared for Nomination Day.“I am happy to report that we have completed all of our arrangements and we are fully prepared… everything is in place and all of our logistics have been sorted out,” Ally said.She stated that the APNU remains confident that it will be able to secure a resounding victory at the November 12 elections, even though she admitted that the voters and residents in the various communities will have a huge role to play in handing the party that victory.“I have confidence in the people we are putting forward… We have a good team of candidates even though some of them are not party members,” Ally remarked when questioned as to the quality and kind of persons being put forward by the coalition of parties.Ally, who is also the General Secretary of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR), which is the largest single party in the coalition, said their campaign strategy is sound and well-thought out.She also advised those candidates going forward to be confident and put in their best performances, given the importance of Local Government Elections. Ally poured cold water on remarks from other LGE contenders that they possess the ability to unseat the PNC or the wider coalition in several areas because of its poor performance at the Local Government and Central Government levels.PPP Executive Secretary Zulfikar MustaphaMeanwhile, executives from the main Opposition Peoples Progressive Party are upbeat and ready for Friday’s proceedings, which will see the Party submitting its own List of Candidates in almost all of the various Local Government Authorities who would like to be elected.PPP Executive Secretary and parliamentarian Zulfikar Mustapha confirmed that the party is ready since it has tied up all of the necessary preparatory works.“We have been ready for a while now and we remain humble and committed to the task of Government for the people and by the people. We believe in LGE and its ability to impact the lives of residents at all levels of the community,” he remarked.Mustapha said that the party’s General Secretary, Bharrat Jagdeo, would expand today on the full state of the Party’s readiness for not only Nominations Day Friday, but LGE in general, when he meets the press at his weekly media conference scheduled for today.Another PPP campaign manager for the Georgetown Area, while at Freedom House on Wednesday said that the levels of optimism within the ranks of the Party are high because the Party’s membership understands what is at stake.“People are taking this election seriously because they are tired of the mismanagement and hardships they are currently facing at the hands of FLAP-NU…sorry I mean the APNU,” the manager remarked.With less than 51 days to go before Local Government Elections (LGE), the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) has received and approved a total of 62 symbols from groups and individuals contesting in the elections.GECOM has confirmed it is in receipt of symbols from seven political parties, an increase compared to the three from 2016 that contested.

SME petitions SEC for change to Industry Guide 7 mining policy

first_imgOn October 1, the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration (SME) filed a Petition for Rulemaking with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to amend Industry Guide 7, which contains the SEC’s basic disclosure policy for mining companies. The SME said: “The SEC’s Industry Guide 7 has become increasingly outdated and out-of-sync with mineral reporting and disclosure standards used in the rest of the world. US mining companies and their investors have suffered as a result.”“SME and the mining industry have been working diligently with the SEC for over eight years to try to clarify and update Guide 7 to no avail,” said SME Executive Director David Kanagy. “It is vital for the SEC to move forward in the near-term to realign the U.S. reporting regime for mining companies, both for the protection of investors and for the removal of competitive harm to US mining companies,”  Specifically, SME’s petition requests the SEC to institute changes to Industry Guide 7 to address the following issues:Mining, as an increasingly international industry, has developed comprehensive, uniformly accepted and understood standards for the reporting of exploration results, mineral resources and mineral reserves. Industry Guide 7 is substantially different from these standards and hampers US mining companies in communicating with their investors and in coordinating disclosures in multiple jurisdictions.Mining companies and investors around the world consider mineral resource estimates as material and fundamental information about a company and its projects. Industry Guide 7’s prohibition on the reporting of mineral resources as such in SEC reports limits the completeness and relevance of SEC reports for investors. The SEC’s practice of allowing disclosure of mineral resource estimates in press releases and on websites, with no guidance or standards as to how mineral resource information should be reported, creates confusion and fails to ensure the quality and reliability of the information provided.Industry Guide 7 discourages mining companies from listing in the US. This harms US stock exchanges, financial markets and the overall economy. In the current environment, reforming Industry Guide 7 would be a substantial step in supporting the US mining industry and advancing economic growth and job creation in the US.last_img read more

Une momie et son sarcophage vieux de 3 600 ans mis au

first_imgUne momie et son sarcophage vieux de 3 600 ans mis au jour à LouxorJeudi, le ministère égyptien des Antiquités a annoncé une nouvelle découverte dans la cité antique de Louxor : une momie vieille de 3.600 ans a été trouvée dans un sarcophage en bois sur un ancien site funéraire.C’est une remarquable découverte que vient de réaliser une équipe d’archéologues espagnols. Dans la cité antique de Louxor en Egypte, ils ont mis au jour un sarcophage en bois long de 2 mètres et large de 50 centimètres sur un ancien site funéraire. Il se trouvait à proximité d’une tombe appartenant au gérant de l’entrepôt de la reine Hatshepsout, membre de la XVIIIe dynastie qui régna sur l’Égypte de 1502 à 1482 avant notre ère.”Cette découverte d’un sarcophage décorée de dessins de plumes est très rare”, a souligné le ministre égyptien des Antiquités Mohamed Ibrahim dans un communiqué. Sur les parois du sarcophage, les archéologues ont également observé toute une série d’inscriptions hiéroglyphiques. Des signes censées faciliter le voyage vers l’au-delà, selon les croyances de l’Egypte antique.  Les dessins de plumes eux, symbolisent Maât, la déesse égyptienne du droit de l’équité et de la justice. Selon la mythologie égyptienne, c’est cette déesse qui serait chargé de peser les coeurs des morts en contrepoids d’une plume pour déterminer leur statut dans l’au-delà. Ali el-Asfar, responsable du département des Antiquités, a souligné que le sarcophage présente encore ses couleurs originales et que les inscriptions comme les dessins semblent bien conservés. Une momie non identifiée À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Le plus intéressant reste que le sarcophage n’était pas vide. A l’intérieur, les archéologues y ont retrouvé son propriétaire momifié. Au vu des observations réalisées, ils estiment que la momie daterait d’au moins 3.600 ans et remonterait donc à la XVIIe dynastie. Pour l’heure, on ignore l’identité du propriétaire mais “on peut déduire des analyses préliminaires du sarcophage et de ses inscriptions, qu’il s’agirait d’un homme d’État important”, a ajouté Ali el-Asfar repris par l’AFP.Les archéologues espagnols à l’origine de la trouvaille n’en sont pas à leur première découverte. L’an passé, ils avaient déjà mis au jour le sarcophage en bois d’un garçon de cinq ans datant de la XVIIe dynastie. Aussi, ils espèrent désormais poursuivre les fouilles et pousser davantage les analyses du sarcophage afin d’en savoir plus sur le défunt.  Le 14 février 2014 à 11:27 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Another Florida city pays hackers over ransomware attack

first_imgLake City, Florida, will pay $460,000 to unlock its computers after suffering a ransomware attack for over two weeks. Angela Lang/CNET Lake City isn’t the first local government to pay out hundreds of thousands of dollars to hackers over ransomware, and it’s not likely to be the last. The northern Florida city said Tuesday that it would be paying hackers up to $460,000 in bitcoin to recover its computer systems. This comes days after Riviera Beach, a Florida city more than 300 miles away, announced that it would be paying hackers up to $600,000 to recover from a ransomware attack. Lake City’s computer systems had been down for at least two weeks, as malware seeped through the local government’s network and locked down computers, holding them hostage unless officials paid the price. The city first disclosed the attack on June 10, noting that all city emails were down, as were landline phones.The city’s 65,000 residents weren’t able to pay their water and electric bills online, or get building permits. Police and fire services were not affected, officials said.”The biggest concern for the public at this moment is the lack of email communication, and we hope to have alternate email contacts available shortly,” city manager Joe Helfenberger said in a statement. Share your voice Computers Security 0 Post a comment How to get your Instagram account back from hackers (The…center_img Now playing: Watch this: 4:29 Tags Lake City’s police said it was investigating the hackers behind the attack. The payment will come through the city’s insurance company, which will cover the entire ransom except for $10,000, CBS 47 Action News Jax reported. (Note: CBS is the parent company of CNET.)At least 170 US state and local governments have been hit with ransomware attacks since 2013, accorded to a Recorded Future report. There’s a debate over whether ransomware victims should pay hackers, and law enforcement agencies recommend against it. The Washington Post’s editorial board published an op-ed on Monday recommending a federal law making it illegal to pay ransomware. But analysts at Forrester Research suggested that paying ransomware could be considered a valid recovery option, especially as these attacks ramp up and cities have no other way of solving the issues. last_img read more

Deep differences remain with two weeks to go in Alaskas legislative session

first_imgDepartment of Revenue Commissioner Randall Hoffbeck listens during a House Finance Committee in February. He said on Thursday that a Permanent Fund draw without other new revenue would make it difficult to plan. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)There are two weeks remaining until the legislative session is scheduled to end, but there are few signs of progress on reaching compromises on the budget and a long-term plan to pay for it.Listen nowMembers of the mostly Democratic House majority say the Senate must finish more budget-related bills to allow negotiations to advance.Homer Rep. Paul Seaton, a Republican who caucuses with the majority, said the Senate should take further action on bills that reintroduce a state income tax and raise oil and gas taxes.“We’re having conversations, but you can’t get down to negotiations until you have solutions on both sides to look at and figure out what will work and what compromises might be necessary to be made,” Seaton said.But the Republican House minority wants the majority to start negotiations on bills where the two sides agree.House Minority Leader Charisse Millett said the Legislature should concentrate on the budget, eliminating some oil and gas tax credits, and a bill drawing money from the Permanent Fund.“We’ve seen in the past, at the end game on Day 119, you’re rushing around, trying to get your conference committees done trying to negotiate a budget,” Millett said. “And we would like to have those conversations start now.”But state Revenue Commissioner Randall Hoffbeck said passing the Permanent Fund bill without other new revenue would leave the state with too large of a budget gap. He said it could hurt the state’s credit ratings, which would add millions of dollars in borrowing costs. And Hoffbeck says it would be difficult to plan for spending cuts that the Legislature hasn’t shown a willingness to make.Hoffbeck said if the Legislature passed a budget without a long-term plan, the state would continue to deplete the Constitutional Budget Reserve, an account that’s shrunk from $13 billion to less than $5 billion in the past four years.“The one thing that we are not assuming one way or the other is wherever this Legislature is ultimately going to land when this is all said and done this year,” Hoffbeck said. “We are hoping for a broad solution. But is there a possibility that when it is all said and done, we get a budget and a CBR draw… it could happen.”The session is scheduled to end on May 17, though it could be extended for up to 10 days if two-thirds of each chamber agree. If lawmakers fail to agree on a budget, Gov. Bill Walker would likely call them into a 30-day special session.last_img read more

Bank of England approves capital calculation models of 19 insurers

first_imgBritish insurers Aviva and Prudential and the Lloyd’s of London insurance market were among 19 firms to have their capital calculation models approved by the Bank of England on Saturday, enabling them to lower costs under new rules.Approval means the insurers can use their internal models to determine how much capital they hold to ensure they can meet policyholder commitments under European Union Solvency II capital rules that come into force next month.Without such endorsement, firms must use a standard calculation method of their solvency set out by regulators, which typically leads to higher capital requirements. That could force companies to raise fresh capital or put pressure on dividend payments to shareholders.Dutch insurer Delta Lloyd this week ditched its model and opted for the standard formula. It now plans to raise 1 billion euros ($1.1 billion) in fresh capital.”Going forward we will monitor insurers’ models carefully in order to ensure they continue to deliver an appropriate level of capital,” Andrew Bailey, chief executive of the Bank of England’s Prudential Regulation Authority, said in a statement.The insurers approved include all the FTSE 100 insurers which submitted their internal models in this round, along with Scottish Widows, part of British bank Lloyds. The Bank of England had said “around 20″ models had been submitted for approval.”We are pleased to receive internal model approval which, whilst expected, is the final major step before our adoption of Solvency II,” said Tom Stoddard, Aviva’s chief financial officer, in a statement.None of the British firms have yet released details of their Solvency II ratios, with most saying they plan to do so alongside the release of annual results in the first quarter of next year. Prudential plans to release solvency ratio details at an investor day on Jan 19.The numbers applying for model approval has fallen drastically from around 120, according to a note from consultants PwC.Insurers say applying for approval can entail documentation running to tens of thousands of pages and cost more than 100 million pounds ($150 million) for the larger firms.The Bank of England said it had not disclosed whether models had been rejected or withdrawn. Industry participants say some internal models may have been sent back to the drawing board at an earlier stage of the application process.A number of insurers are planning to apply for model approval later than the Jan 2016 start date for Solvency II, the Bank said in the statement.FTSE 100 firm Direct Line is applying to use an internal model from mid-2016 and will use a standard model until then.A spokesman for Rothesay Life, whose backers include Goldman Sachs, said the insurer was deciding whether to apply for a partial internal model next year.The following insurers’ models were approved: Amlin Plc, Aspen Insurance, UK Ltd, Aviva Plc, British Gas Insurance Ltd, Just Retirement Ltd, Legal & General Group Plc, Markel International Insurance Company Ltd, MBIA UK Insurance Ltd, The National Farmers’ Union Mutual Insurance Society Ltd, Pacific Life Re Ltd, Pension Insurance Corporation Plc, Phoenix Group, Prudential Plc, QBE European Operations Plc, RSA Insurance Group Plc, Scottish Widows Group, Society of Lloyd’s, Standard Life Plc.last_img read more

DC Announces Streaming Service a Swamp Thing Series More DCEU News

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Have you ever looked at your bank account and thought, “there’s just too much money in here?” Well, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have a solution for you. We’ve reached the point in our cordcutting future where so many companies have their own streaming service, we might as well have stuck with cable. But then we wouldn’t have all this great content we totally plan to watch one day. Warner Bros. is throwing its hat in that particular ring with the official announcement of their DC streaming service. They announced they were developing one back in 2016, but now it has a name: DC Universe.The service was announced on DC Comics’ website with a list of the original series you can expect to see with your subscription. Two of them we already knew about. There’s the Titans live-action series, which is sounding promising. It’s being produced by Greg Berlanti, who’s behind the CW Arrowverse shows.  We probably shouldn’t expect any crossovers, because those are getting overcrowded as it is. But what better way to kick off your streaming service than with a show from the only person who’s managed to get an interconnected live-action DC universe off the ground? The other series we already knew about is the long-awaited third season of Young Justice. Those two alone make the service worth at least checking out, but the other two announced shows are really exciting.(Via DC Comics)DC is developing a Swamp Thing series. Details are pretty scarce right now, but The Hollywood Reporter says it’ll be co-written and showrun by Mark Verheiden, who wrote for Battlestar Galactica and Netflix’s Daredevil, and Gary Dauberman of the It movies. That’s some serious talent, and it only gets more promising when we learn that Aquaman-director James Wan is executive producing. The series sounds like it’ll follow the comics pretty closely.It will focus on Abby Arcane, a CDC researcher investigating a swamp-borne virus. She forms an attachment to scientist Alex Holland, who suffers a tragic accident. Those familiar with the character know where this is heading. He becomes the Swamp Thing, she still loves him and everyone else is a big ol’ dick about it. I’m speculating on that last bit, but that is kind of the story of Swamp Thing. We don’t know what stories the series will adapt, but we can hope for Alan Moore’s Saga of the Swamp Thing. Or some version of Brian K. Vaughan’s 2000 take on the character. Swamp Thing is one of DC’s most complex, emotionally resonant characters, and I’m excited to see how it makes the transition to TV.Also coming to the service is an animated series starring Harley Quinn. Not a ton is known about it other than it’ll be aimed at adults, and is created by the executive producers behind Powerless. That show was fun while it lasted. They certainly have the humor needed to build a series around Harley Quinn. Also, that other Superman prequel series Metropolis has been pushed back and is being completely redeveloped. Why, into what, we don’t know. It was originally going to focus on Lois Lane and Lex Luthor before Superman arrived in the city.We don’t know much else about any of the announced shows or the DC Universe streaming service at this point. DC has yet to announce a launch date or a price point, nor have they said what else the service will include. Personally, I’m hoping for a Marvel Unlimited-style comics subscription.Melissa Benoist in Supergirl (Photo via CW)Over on the movie side of things, Zack Snyder has been answering fan questions on the VERO app. There, he dropped some hints at where he would have taken the DCEU. His most interesting reveal: He was planning to bring Supergirl to the big screen. A fan on Reddit posted  Zack’s answers. First, he mentioned that the escape pod seen in the Man of Steel prequel comic probably was not Kara. As for his plans for Supergirl in the DCEU, he said “It’s a long answer. I think for another time.” So it’s still possible she might show up.Snyder went just a little bit further when asked what his plans for Kara were. “There’s another way to get her that we put right in plain sight,” he wrote. So that implies there’s a Supergirl Easter egg somewhere in Batman v Superman that nobody’s found yet. Warner Bros. has been doing everything it can to distance itself from that movie, but if it got us a big screen Supergirl… well, at least one good thing would come if it.He didn’t get much more concrete than that, but a DCEU take on Kara Zor-El would definitely have been interesting. Hopefully, it would have taken at least some cues from Melissa Benoist’s version of the character from the CW show. It already gave us a more recognizable Superman than Man of Steel or BvS could. Hopefully, the movies wouldn’t repeat the mistake with Supergirl.HENRY CAVILL as Superman (via Warner Bros.)As for what’s next for Superman, it’s most likely a sequel to Justice League, but that might not be what Henry Cavill wants. He’s looking to make another solo flick, according to an interview with Collider. Cavill only has one more movie in his contract, and that most likely means Justice League 2, which despite the disappointing reviews and box office performance, is still happening. What isn’t on Warner Bros.’ planned slate of films is Man of Steel 2. And Cavill really wants to make that movie. He says he’s doing everything he can to make it happen.“I’m having a lot of conversations, behind-the-scenes, with certain people and we will hopefully be having conversations with other people who are also behind-the-scenes to make things start happening,” he said. “It is very much in my desire to do a Man of Steel 2, a direct sequel to Man of Steel, and there is a whole bunch of Superman story that I want to tell.”He’s right that there’s so much more of Superman’s story that would make great movies. And as many problems as I had with Man of Steel and BvS, Cavill wasn’t one of them. I genuinely like him as Superman. It’s what the stories chose to do with the character I disliked. And the fact that Cavill is this passionate about getting it made is a promising sign that, not only will it happen, it could turn out to be good. Especially when combined with Warner Bros.’ desire to make the DCEU version more in line with the inspiring, optimistic character from the comics. That’s all I really want from a Superman movie, really.

Chile tsunami alert following massive quake likely wont affect Costa Rica

first_imgA strong magnitude-8.3 earthquake struck the center of Chile on Wednesday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, triggering a tsunami alert along the entire coastline and sparking panic and shaking buildings in the capital.The quake had a shallow depth of 11 kilometers (six miles) and hit at 7:54 pm (2254 GMT), with the epicenter located about 500 kilometers north of the capital Santiago, seismologists at the University of Chile said. Reiteramos a toda la población que se encuentra en el borde costero evacuar de forma tranquila hasta zona de seguridad— onemichile (@onemichile) September 16, 2015 A tsunami watch was issued for Hawaii by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, but so far Costa Rica has not issued any warnings for its coast, according to Silvia Chacón, oceanographer and coordinator for the National Tsunami Monitoring System at the National University.Chacón said that the outward force of the quake would send any potential tsunami west, toward Hawaii and Japan. Costa Rica’s position behind Peru and Ecuador would make it “very unlikely” that any serious wave would hit shores here. Chacón did say that currents could be unusually strong around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday when any possible wave mind reach Costa Rica.USGS reported two aftershocks, both above magnitude-6.0.The quake was felt as far away as Buenos Aires, in Argentina, about 1,400 kilometers away, while a tsunami warning was in place for the whole of Chile’s coastline. #Breaking – #TsunamiWatch: 8.3 MMS #earthquake #Chile. #Tsunami possible in #Hawaii​Details:— WeatherNation (@WeatherNation) September 16, 2015 AFP contributed to this report.

Cyprus needs a forgiving roadsafety system expert says

first_imgApplying ‘forgiving’ road safety solutions in a systematic and strategic way under the umbrella of one agency would optimise the benefits, according to Dr Judith Charlton, Director of the Monash University Accident Research Centre (Murac) in Australia.Charlton, who was in Cyprus recently and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for cooperation in the field of road safety with the Centre for Excellence in Risk and Decision Science at the European University in the presence of the Minister of Transport, Communications and Works Vassiliki Anastassiadou and the Australian High Commissioner, Sam Beever.Under the MoU the partners will share best practice, develop road safety science, draft common projects, explore joint educational programs and encourage engagement between academia and civil society to assist authorities improve local road safety conditions.In an interview with the Cyprus News Agency during her visit, Charlton said measures to tackle road fatalities such as road cameras, heavy fines, awareness campaigns etc all have potential, but the benefits could be optimised by applying road safety solutions in a systematic and strategic way.“Road users are vulnerable – humans are not built to withstand the forces of a crash, so the system needs to be ‘forgiving’. We don’t achieve a great deal by blaming the driver.  Yes, we expect road users to be compliant – to stop at stop lights, drive within speed limits etc, and the majority do, most of the time. On the other hand, humans are prone to error.  So, it’s important to build a forgiving system – designing 5-star roads, promoting 5-star safe cars, and managing speeds so that when mistakes are made this does not cost their lives. We know a lot about what safety solutions work in each of these parts of the road system,” she said.According to Charlton there’s considerable research evidence to guide road safety initiatives and with a deep understanding of crash and injury patterns in Cyprus, it’s possible to design a strategy applying an optimal package of solutions. “We can’t expect to achieve zero tomorrow but we should expect that this is possible, set realistic targets, and measure progress”, she added.She said that undoubtedly this should be a collective effort with a shared vision and shared commitment not only to make Cyprus “safer”, but to make it “safe”. This vision, she said must entail that the only acceptable number of deaths and serious injuries is zero. “This is the starting point”, she said.Asked why some countries were pioneers in preventing road accidents and others, not and if this had to do with impunity, a better transport system or better education, Charlton said that what Murac has observed in those countries which have made great strides in road safety is strong leadership and commitment to make a difference.“And while road safety is a shared responsibility, there needs to be a lead agency,” she added.Commenting on the cooperation with the university, she said: “What we plan to achieve through the MoU is to work together to support the government agencies in Cyprus with their road safety efforts through high quality research and training.”You May LikeDirect HealthyAt 62, Steve Harvey Drives This Kind Of CarDirect HealthyUndoHistory A2ZWhere You Should Retire in the USA: States Ranked From Worst To BestHistory A2ZUndoIcePopMan Flies His Drone Over A Strange Giant Hole And It Captures ThisIcePopUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
