Science, Scientists and the Independence of the EPA

On the same day that the United States Senate failed to pass a bill approving the construction of the Keystone pipeline, the House managed to sneak one of those little bills that gets almost no attention from the media.   For background, let's look at what Representative Chris Stewart (R - Utah 2), sponsor of House Resolution 1422 had to say about the Environmental Protection Administration at a House Science, Space and Technology Committee Hearing on November 14, 2013:     We now have some sense of where Mr. Stewart is coming from when it comes to the EPA.   H.R. 1422, the rather innocuous-sounding EPA Science Advisory Board Reform Act of 2014 which was sponsored by Republican Chris Stewart (R - Utah 2), passed the House by a vote of 229 to 191 on November 18,...

Joint Task Force 636 raised on 1 November

A new task force has taken command of Australian forces in Afghanistan following the formation of Joint Task Force 636 (JTF636) on 1 November. JTF 636 now commands Australia’s Defence personnel in Afghanistan including those working in mentoring roles with the Afghan National Army and soldiers on force protection duties. Maj-Gen David Mulhall, Commander JTF 636, said the task force represented a new way of operating. “It is a time of change, it’s more than creating a new name and a new flag,” he said. “It’s a different approach to doing things here in Afghanistan as we transition into Operation HIGHROAD, Australia’s commitment to the post-2014 NATO-led Resolute Support mission. “As we focus exclusively on Afghanistan we’ll be building on the success of those people who’ve come before us.” {ads1}Australia’s role in supporting the NATO led...

Father Vows New Evidence Proves Teen’s Innocence in “Swatting” Case

The father of an undisclosed teenager, arrested for making fake calls to emergency services across North America, has mentioned in a press statement that new evidence has come to light that proves his son’s innocence. He thanked someone alleging to be a part of the vigilante hacker group, Anonymous, and insisted that “it’s the truth,” adding that “I’ve known my son is innocent from the word go.” The hacker group mentioned earlier on Sunday that they are helping to clear the youth’s name because they believe he was framed. According to the group, they’ll be revealing more documents in near future that would help exonerate the kid. The teen was arrested in May and accused of numerous cases of what’s described by police as “swatting.” Consequently, the teen’s father mentioned that “we... Read more

101 and 111 restored after fault hit non-emergency numbers

Non-emergency phone numbers for British police forces across the country and the nationwide NHS 24 hour helpline have been restored after they encountered technical faults on Saturday. Both services had suffered problems for up to two hours before the issues were resolved. Motoring organisation RAC has said its breakdown number went down this morning after “Vodafone suffered a catastrophic failure to its telephone equipment” affecting “many large businesses” who are taking their services. However, the emergency 999 number was unaffected but police issued warnings for fear the emergency number will be clogged with non-urgent calls. {ads1}The Metropolitan Police even tweeted at 11am that there were problems with the 101 number and told residents to visit their local station to report non-urgent crime.

Is Russia Deliberately Provoking the West?

During the spring of 2014, much of the world's attention was drawn to the crisis in Ukraine. While news of the conflict has been relegated to the back pages of the mainstream media, the situation  over the past six months is far from "peaceful" and far from "routine".  The Ukraine conflict has led to a significant increase in military tensions between Russia, its NATO counterparts and particularly Finland and Sweden.  A policy brief, "Dangerous Brinkmanship" by the European Leadership Network (ELN) examines both the intensity and gravity of incidents that have occurred between Western and Russian military forces since Russia annexed Crimea.  On top of what are considered relatively routine encounters, there have been some serious incidents that could be looked at as highly provocative.  All of hese incidents have...

Soros Signals Argentina’s Shale is Biggest Place to Be

One of the world’s legendary investors is upping his bet on Argentina’s shale oil and gas industry in a show of confidence for shale production in South America’s largest unconventional prize —and a big boost for both supermajors and smaller players making big waves in the heart of new discovery areas. George Soros has doubled his stake in YPF SA, the state-owned oil company in Argentina, which sits atop some of the world’s largest shale oil and gas resources, and is about to get even larger following a new discovery over the last couple of weeks of a second key shale play.  Argentina holds an estimated 27 billion barrels of technically recoverable oil and 802 trillion cubic feet of technically recoverable shale gas, much of it located in the Vaca Muerta, an...

Hindus say that recently out 23rd edition of prestigious Royal Spanish Academy Dictionary of the Spanish Language reportedly labeling gypsies as liars and cheats is appalling. Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that branding the entire community of about 15-million gypsies as liars and cheats was racism and highly prejudicial and such attitudes should have no place in 21st century Europe. Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, stated that Academy should offer public apology over this issue; and recall all the printed, electronic and digital copies of the dictionary and come out with a revised version. {ads1}Describing “gypsy” as synonymous with cheating and lying was highly hurtful, offensive and damaging to gypsy communities who had been in Europe since ninth century CE, Rajan Zed pointed...

Dwane Casey Named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month

A study in the art of fast bowling and captaincy

He has shown the menacing influence fast bowling has on a cricket match. Irrespective of the conditions, a bowler of his ilk can threaten any batsman. Sadly, bowlers of his ilk are rare to come by, which is what makes Mitchell Johnson a greater hazard for the opposition. In practice sessions, it’s hard to replicate what Johnson does. Steyn and Morkel bowl fast too. But not as fast nor are they as life-threatening as Johnson. A bowling machine doesn’t provide the angle of his round arm action. Nor does it replicate the death stare from him, nor the moustache, nor the variety in deliveries.  Johnson still does spray the ball around. Though his control has improved a great deal, there are moments in which the old Johnson appears. For my mind,... Read more

QBs Recovering from Offseason Surgeries as NFL Training Camps Open

It has been an off-season of recuperation for a number of NFL quarterbacks who underwent surgery in recent months.

“Let me be the first to say that my tastes in the bedroom may not be palatable to some folks” The Hollywood Reporter – Canada’s CBC on Sunday fired popular radio show host Jian Ghomeshi after allegations of sexual abuse by a former lover. Details of Ghomeshi’s sexual relations with his ex-girlfriend were not clear, but the radio host on his Facebook page defended their “rough sex” role-playing as consensual. “I have always been interested in a variety of activities in the bedroom, but I only participate in sexual practices that are mutually agreed upon, consensual, and exciting for both partners,” Ghomeshi, whose CBC show Q airs on over 180 NPR/PRI stations, stated. He said his relationship with an unnamed “woman in her late 20s” began two years ago, and over time included “role-play,... Read more

What does Independence mean for Liverpool’s Creative sector?

A conference held by Edge Hill University’s Institute for Creative Enterprise (ICE) on 4 and 5 September will discuss what ‘independence’ means for and within Liverpool’s creative and cultural sectors.

We want to explore what sets Liverpool artists and musicians apart and the prospects of this continuing in an era of globalisation.” A panel of media and cultural experts will explore the roots of the city’s political and cultural independence and the role that the independent sector can play in Liverpool’s regeneration.

Review: 2014 Can-Am Spyder RT

It’s the end of the riding season for motorcyclists in Toronto. Although it doesn’t have to be, not if your ride is a Can-Am Spyder. But first things first: This is not a motorcycle.   Yes you need a motorcycle license to pilot a Spyder. You’ll also need to wear a DOT approved helmet. But that’s about where the similarities end. The Spyder experience is more akin to an ATV, snowmobile, or even jet ski --BRP, the company behind the Spyder, they build those too. Unlike any of the three prior mentioned machines, a Spyder is darn near impossible to tip over and is completely street legal in every province, territory and state.   Riding With two wheels in the front the Can-Am Spyder has the correct wheel configuration for a properly stable trike.

The ‘Young Writers of Benghazi’ and Other Hopes for a Literary Scene Under Siege

The last month has been a tense time in Benghazi. Hundreds have died in the fight for Libya’s second city, and literary hopes — like others — have been put on hold. But Nada Elfeituri still writes, and still holds a candle for the “Young Writers of Benghazi” group:   Elfeituri, who describes herself as “a Libyan who’s obsessed with the intellectual revival of my country,” started the “Young Writers of Benghazi” in August 2013, “though the idea was something I had been planning for a while. Our first project was a story contest in one of Benghazi’s local public school, which we were able to do through a grant with MEPI (the Middle-East Partnership Initiative). The winning stories were printed in booklets, which we distributed among the students and staff of the school, and the... Read more

What I Wore: Blue Plaid Coat

{ads1}If you live in Toronto, or anywhere else in the world where winters and cold days in general last forever, you really can’t own too many coats. Outerwear is the one thing that people will see on you day after day, and it helps having more than one to spice things up. Which is why I was overjoyed when The Bay generously sent me this blue plaid stunner from Planet to wear and to love this fall. Obviously, I wore it to dinner the same night, feeling like this new coat injected new life into my simple outfit. And while it looks like it wouldn’t be warm enough for our blistery days, with a little creative layering (a wool sweater over a shirt dress), it does the job splendidly. I will definitely enjoy throwing this coat on, to change things up from my usual wintery... Read more

Baltic Sea Mystery similar to Mystery of Everyman’s Way

There was a strange object discovered in the summer of 2011 by a group of Swedish treasure hunters from an ocean explorer team from Sweden.  Quite recently, this Ocean X Team conducted a second expedition to the circle-shaped object in the Baltic Sea and found something they have never experienced before. First they thought it was just stone or a rock cliff, but after further observations the object appeared more as a huge mushroom, rising 3-4 meters/10-13 feet from the seabed, with rounded sides and rugged edges. The object had an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top, as an opening. On top of the object they also found strange stone circle formations, almost looking like small fireplaces. The stones were covered in something resembling soot. “During my 20-year... Read more

Why The Debate Over Energy Storage Utterly Misses The Point

Why The Debate Over Energy Storage Utterly Misses The Point

The debate over which energy storage technology will prove to be the best in the long-term is woefully misguided. Many technologies have been tested in the field or been fully installed, but their real-world applications have created constant questions around a number of fixed themes: the three-points concern cost, technology, and potential environmental impact, as well as the need for specific regulation and end-of-life management. Here, engineers have run into the dilemma of energy storage technology. It is difficult for any energy storage method, at least at the current stage of development, to produce the amounts of power and energy required at a cost-effective price. However, passing judgment on energy storage by using this equation alone is simply incorrect. After all, we do not expect renewable energy to provide a one-size-fits-all solution... Read more

New school year, new school… new friends (please!!)

New school year, new school… new friends (please!!)

When you’re all cozy in a friendship you can totally relax. Even going to school is more fun because your friend is there. But when you move to a school where you know no one, and your bff friend from your old school stops acting like a friend, then nothing feels right. I recently got this email from a girl who is in that sad place: Where do I fit it?!  The Girls' Friendship Q&A Book, by Annie Fox, iIllustration by Erica DeChavez © 2014, Annie Fox and Erica DeChavez Hey Terra, Last year I moved to a new place. Later I heard that my best friend was best friends with some new girl. That girl is apparently really popular and cool (and also kinda mean) and in one year’s time my bff has become friends with all the poplar kids... Read more

Greek Food: A Taste of the Ancient Past

Did you know that when you sit down to a hearty meal of Greek food that you are often eating exactly the same dishes their ancestors did in ancient times? The first cookbook was written by a Greek, Archestrolus, in 350 BC suggesting that food was always an important part of Greek life. Some of these ancient dishes include dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) and many of the same fruits, vegetables and grains grown in Greecetoday were also used by their ancestors including grapes and olives. Greece’s climate is perfect for growing many of the herbs used in their cooking. Many of them grow in the wild such as oregano, basil, mint and thyme. I recall when I lived in a small shepherd’s village on the island of Euboeia, I rode in the back of a pickup truck up into... Read more

Dhanush Aksharas buddy-bonding with Amitabh Bachchan

Masala, Monday, November 24th 2014

Dhanush and Akshara shared a karmic connection with Amitabh Bachchan during the shooting of R Balki's Shamitabh. The two Tamil actors' 'Rajinikanth' and 'Kamal Haasan' connection immediately stuck a bond with Big B who told the two youngsters to 'chill' in his presence. Tamil star Dhanush and debutante Akshara Haasan's bonding with Big B during the shooting of Shamitabh is the stuff legends are made of. Initially the two youngsters were awestruck and speechless. But in no time they were bonding like buddies. "As usual," says a source from the sets. "This is the way Amitabh Bachchan likes it with his co-stars. Sadly a lot of them do not respond to Big B's request for camaraderie because of their inherent fear of acting too familiar with the legend." {ads1}But Big B is adept... Read more

‘The Shaukeens' Movie Review

‘The Shaukeens' Movie Review

A remake of Basu Chatterjee’s 1982 classic comedy filmShaukeen, The Shaukeens, is a feel-good adventure movie that follows three middle-aged men played by Annu Kapoor, Piyush Mishra and Anupam Kher, who venture on a trip to Mauritius, where they meet the sizzling hot Lisa Haydon. The film also features Akshay Kumar in a very interesting special appearance. Akshay plays an important cameo, while Lisa Haydon plays opposite Akshay Kumar. The three main characters of the film, Laali played by Kher, Kapoor as KD and Pinky played by Mishra, want to add a little spice to their boring lives and plan a trip to Mauritius. Akshay, for the first time in his career, will play himself in the film. However, some negative elements have been added to the actor's character. He will be seen as an arrogant and alcoholic superstar. In one such instance, Akshay is seen throwing off his fan's... Read more

Movie Preview Happy Ending

Previews, Monday, November 24th 2014

It starts off with Kareena Kapoor's character (cameo) confessing her love by telling those three magic words to Yudi, a one-book wonder author and someone who is (self-confessedly) not allergic to 'I Love You', but the baggage attached with it'. And when Yudi doesn't reciprocate her feelings, Kareena's character shows him the middle finger (quite literally!). No sooner does she exit Yudi's life, enters Vishaka (Kalki Koechlin), a dentist by profession, and is head over heels in love with Yudi. She loves Yudi so much that she even installs a mobile app called 'Nospace' on his cell so that she can keep track of his whereabouts. While she leaves no stone unturned in gaining his attention, Yudi is totally unmoved by her and her feelings and emotions towards him and... Read more

Bruno Mars, Mark Ronson And Mystikal Performing “Uptown Funk” on SNL

Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson get the funk with their new single “Uptown Funk” By Stephen Pate – Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson performed the song “”Uptown Funk” and “Feel Right” on this “SNL” last night. For Ronson this was his first time on “SNL”.  Bruno Mars has appeared twice before, which might explain why Ronson is a walk-on not a performer in the video. OK Ronson is the producer and he plays guitar but Bruno Mars is the lead on “Uptown Funk” and Mystikal leads on “Feel Right” the second video. Bruno Mars and Ronson worked together on the 2012 hit “Unorthodox Jukebox.” Ronson produced the songs “Moonshine,” “Gorilla,” and the super hit “Locked Out Of Heaven.” My question is: where is Bruno Mars new CD? Aside from winning awards and selling millions of... Read more

Music Review Rang Rasiya Colors of Passion

Music :: Filmi, Thursday, November 6th 2014

Expectations: Ketan Mehta has reached a musical high twice - with the 1993 Maya Memsaab and the 1996 Aar Ya Paar, each a score that fit the subject perfectly. So expectations are good. Music: 'Rang Rasiya' (Sunidhi Chauhan) is a song with a very unusual mukhda - it repeats the same phrase from beginning to end. This has been intentionally done to denote the multi-hued persona of the protagonist as the phrase is sung in different ways in terms of pace and pitch. The words (Manoj Muntashir) strike a balance between poetic imagery ('Yeh saare rang tere rang hain / Gulabi saanjh ka dhalta hua aanchal') and simple lexicon with a hint of erotica and passion ('Ek tu hai magar tere rang kayi / Mohe rang de re, rang de re, rang...

The Driving Force Behind the US Oil Boom

The shale revolution’s sweet spot is oilfield services, the lower-risk backbone of the American oil and gas boom that pays off regardless of a play’s economics. Behind the stardom of the explorers and producers who have put themselves on the revolutionary shale map and absorb most of the risk—are the service providers who make up a highly lucrative market segment. The US land-based rig count rose 3% over the last quarter, reaching a two-year high of 1,870 active rigs. A major factor... Read more
