For one night only how you could sleep in a London Eye

first_imgThe country’s most popular paid-for tourist attraction, the London Eye, will be the exclusive domain of a couple on March 30 when, for the first time ever, one of its pods will be converted to a pop-up hotel room.Launched today by TripAdvisor Rentals, the Eye Spy a Home in the Sky competition will gift two people the opportunity to sleep in a London Eye pod kitted out with furniture by homewares brand Wayfair. Though the capsule will be decorated on March 30 for the winners’ stay that night, a rendering released today shows it will be simply furnished with wooden furniture, feature garlands of lights above the bed and made verdant with various palms and plants – which will also provide at least some coverage to the duo sleeping in this glass-covered container. £370inc. tax 9Telegraph expert rating The Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort As yet, few details have been released to clarify how exactly the couple’s stay in the sky will be structured but they will be able to access their room from 5.30pm onwards. The London Eye will remain open to the public until 6pm so they can expect to attract a lot of attention if they take up residence before that time. When the Eye closes to the public, their airborne boudoir will be set at the very top of the attraction, at a height of 443ft (135m). During the evening dinner (and a bottle of champagne) will be served in their room and the attraction will be staffed throughout the night. Residents will be able to contact attendees below should they wish, for example, to come down to use the toilet or stretch their legs.In addition to their one-night stay in the riverside landmark, the couple will be provided with a complimentary three-night stay in a three-bedroom London home available through TripAdvisor’s rental division. That should provide plenty of time to better explore the sights that caught the couple’s notice when stationed in the Eye. From Meanwhile, travellers intrigued by the possibility of overnighting in a conventional space but who would like to simply pay for the privilege rather than count on good fortune in a competition have a number of options available to them.In Arctic Sweden, the fabled Icehotel is made entirely of ice and compressed snow and turns to meltwater each spring; in Huzhou, China, the Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort is a magnet-shaped hotel seemingly embedded in Lake Taihu; in Antwerp, the bizarre Hotel CasAnuns has been designed to resemble a giant intestine.

Zest Energy investment in technology results in smaller customised mobile substations

first_imgMobile substation technology has been used in South America for many years and WEG Brazil has an established reputation for the supply of this technology with an extensive footprint of successful installations. Zest Energy was responsible for bringing this technology to the African continent and since its first units were supplied to Eskom in South Africa, the company has expanded its solutions to include a wide range of mobile substations and mobile switching stations.Coenraad Vrey, Managing Director of Zest Energy, says that the first mobile units engineered by the company in South Africa were mobile diesel generators and the company used this experience, together with the application of WEG’s advanced technology, to engineer a mobile substation solution suitable for the harsh and demanding African conditions.“What is particularly significant is that, with this mobile substation technology, it is possible to move these units to wherever they are required. This provides optimum flexibility, not just to power utilities, but also to other operations such as mines,” he adds.Zest Energy leveraged WEG’s 20 years of experience in engineering transformers to develop a transformer that has significant weight reduction. “This re-engineering was necessary to minimise both the weight and the physical size of the transformers. One way that we were able to achieve this requirement was by employing ODAF (oil direct air force) cooling,” says Vrey.He explains that an intimate understanding and knowledge of various applications means that the company is able to meet very specific requirements. “As an example, for a particular mobile substation for Eskom, we engineered a transformer with a low impedance value to comply with the project specifications, while still ensuring that the overall substation weight remained within the South African road ordinance requirements.“We worked closely with the utility and in an effort to assist with the unit’s operation we made use of offload selector switches to select the primary and secondary ratios. This was essential as previous technologies in place required that the transformer be opened and the links manually changed inside the transformer. Our solutions resulted in savings in time and enhanced safety, with increased ease of operation.”“Because these units are multi ratio and will be connected to different network operational voltages, we built technology into the control system that will ensure the correct voltage is selected, thus reducing any human error. The equipment has a comprehensive earthing system incorporating copper bars with connectors. This provides Eskom with different earthing interfacing points to which connections to the local earth system can be made. Similar, customised mobile substation solutions can be developed for utilities throughout Africa, all with an emphasis on fit for purpose practicality and safety,” Vrey concludes.last_img read more

Poubelles océaniques un fléau pour toute la chaîne alimentaire

first_imgPoubelles océaniques : un fléau pour toute la chaîne alimentaireUne nouvelle nappe de déchets, véritable poubelle océanique géante, a été découverte dans l’océan Atlantique. Elle regroupe des milliers de morceaux de plastique, certains assez petits pour être ingérés par les animaux marins et finir par causer leur mort.Située au nord de la Caraïbe, il s’agit, au même titre que la plaque de déchets du Pacifique nord, d’une gigantesque poubelle en plein milieu de l’océan. Durant une étude longue de 22 ans, révélée lors de l’Ocean Sciences Meeting à Portland, plus de 64.000 morceaux de plastique ont été collectés, pour la plupart des bouchons de bouteilles. La densité de plastique maximale dans l’eau était de 200.000 morceaux par kilomètre cube.Le plastique, ingéré par les animaux, peut s’avérer fatal pour les créatures marines. Au fur et à mesure qu’il se désagrège, il se décompose en effet en petits morceaux que de nombreuses espèces confondent avec de la nourriture. Toute la chaîne alimentaire est infectée, directement ou indirectement.À lire aussiPourquoi l’eau des océans est-elle salée ?Les conséquences ne sont pas encore bien connues mais elles risquent d’être dramatiques si la situation n’évolue pas. Les animaux les plus directement touchés sont les poissons et les oiseaux, qui ingèrent les résidus. Les scientifiques ont même découvert une couvée entière empoisonnée par le plastique, la mère ayant tenté de nourrir ses oisillons avec des bouchons de bouteilles… L’homme n’est pas à l’abri de cette source de pollution. Ces déchets contiennent en effet des substances toxiques comme le bisphénol A, également dangereux pour l’espèce humaine qui se nourrit des poissons contaminés. Les résultats d’analyses menées dans un laboratoire de Californie sont alarmants : selon eux, plus d’un tiers des poissons vivant dans le Pacifique nord ont déjà ingéré du plastique.Les poubelles océaniques géantes se situent dans des zones de très faibles courants, entourées de courants forts. Les scientifiques en ont déjà identifié cinq, dispersées dans tous les océans du globe.  Le 28 février 2010 à 11:54 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Watch Horny Toads Hitch Ride on Pythons Back After Storm

first_img68mm just fell in the last hour at Kununurra. Flushed all the cane toads out of my brothers dam. Some of them took the easy way out – hitching a ride on the back of a 3.5m python.— Andrew Mock (@MrMeMock) December 30, 2018The world’s largest toad, rhinella marina, also known as the giant neotropical toad or marine toad, is native to South and Central America, but has been introduced to various islands throughout Oceania and the Caribbean, as well as Northern Australia.Boasting poison glands (and highly toxic tadpoles), the terrestrial true toad is often used as a method of agricultural pest control. It is now considered an invasive species—no thanks to toxic skin that’s left many wild and domesticated animals in its wake.“They come out at night mainly,” Mock told ABC. “They don’t like the heat, they love the rain. They were all breeding like mad [that] night, fighting over females, so it was quite a sight to behold.”Lady cane toads, however, weren’t the only thing they were lusting after.Jodie Rowley, conservation biologist and chief scientist at FrogID (a sort of Shazam for frog calls) revealed the truth about the horny snake charmers. Stay on target Amphibians Are Dying En Masse, Humans Are to BlameGEEK PICK: Toad Amiibo A downpour in northern Australia on Sunday flushed out a strange sight: a dozen or so cane toads riding an 11-foot python.The orgy of amphibians surprised farmer Paul Mock, who was checking the nearby dam after an overnight storm.“I noticed because the water was so high, that it had flooded all the burrows of the cane toads which live around the edge of the lake underneath the lawn,” he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). “So they were all on top of the lawn, thousands of them.”And that wasn’t even the most unsettling display. On the other side of the embankment, Mock found the slithering toad transporter.“When I was halfway across the lawn, I bumped into the snake and he was just crawling along with all these toads hanging on, which I thought was extremely unusual and had never seen anything like that before,” he explained.So, as any sensical human would, he snapped some photos and shot a video, then sent the evidence to his brother in New Zealand, who tweeted it into a viral sensation. Male Cane Toads (Rhinella marina) can often be a little *too* keen to mate! They’re all trying to mate with the poor Olive Python (Liasis olivaceus)! #Australia #WildOz #CaneToads #ItIsNYE— Jodi Rowley (@jodirowley) December 31, 2018This isn’t Mock’s first close encounter with Monty the olive python—a regular around the clothesline and in the bush. Last time the farmer saw him, the snake was so full of a whole wallaby that it couldn’t move.Monty knows better, it seems, than to eat his passengers, which, according to Mock, are plentiful in his part of the world.“To me, you could put a bit of a positive spin on the fact the Aussie animals have gotten used to them and figured them out,” he said of the cane toads, which wiped out local Australian monitor lizards when they came to town in 1935.More on Help the Loneliest Frog Find True LoveWatch: Texas Man Finds More Than 30 Rattlesnakes Under ShedDon’t Look Now: This Frog’s Butt is Staring At Youlast_img read more

Vietnam flood death toll rises to 19

first_imgA man looks at motorbikes damaged by flash flooding in Vietnam`s Yen Bai province on 21 July, 2018. Photo: AFPFlash floods in Vietnam have now claimed at least 19 lives, the government said Sunday, as residents in affected areas sought safety in higher ground.Boasting a long coastline, tropical Vietnam is battered by floods and storms every year, with hundreds of lives lost from the annual monsoon barrage.The remnants of Typhoon Son Tinh, now a tropical depression, made landfall Wednesday night, the third tropical storm to hit Vietnam since the start of the year.The latest report from the country’s disaster office said 19 people have been killed so far, with an additional 13 people unaccounted for.Floods and landslide from heavy rains have ranged far and wide and impacted rural and urban areas, including the capital Hanoi.They are expected to continue in the coming days.State-controlled VNExpress news site reported Saturday that residents in Chuong My district on the outskirts of Hanoi were asked to leave their homes and get to higher ground for fear of heavy floods.”We must be active in moving our furniture out of homes. From last year’s experience, we did not have time to run,” a local resident was quoted as saying.Published photos showed homeowners in plastic raincosts moving bags of goods and livestock.”My house is in a very low location so I have to move all the rice to higher places,” resident Nguyen Duy Dong told VNExpress. “Since the afternoon, we have moved more than one tonne of rice.”The amount of land under seige has also spiked, with more than 15,000 houses damaged or destroyed and more than 110,000 hectares of crops inundated. Several roads have also disappeared under the water.Vietnam’s rainy season, like other countries in the region, is between June and November, but the death toll from stormy weather has often exceeded its neighbors.Last year, 389 lives were claimed by natural disasters, with material damages reportedly reaching $2.6 billion, according to the government.last_img

Texas Agency Overrides Judge Due To Outdated Alcohol Rules

first_imgThe agency regulating the Texas alcohol industry has reversed a judge’s advisory decision that it says could’ve shuttered most of the state’s booze business.The Austin American-Statesman reports that the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission cast aside the ruling this month, saying that lawmakers didn’t intend large-scale disruption of the industry.A judge issued an opinion last fall that he acknowledged could shut down the state’s alcoholic beverage industry, but follows Texas law that hasn’t been updated since the end of the Prohibition era. The rules require companies that make, distribute or retain alcohol to remain independent from each other.The ruling meant that companies like Anheuser-Busch and Molson Coors Brewing couldn’t legally operate in the state.The issue is the latest indication of Texas’ outdated alcoholic beverage rules.

How to get a PS4 today

first_imgThe PS4 has been out in the world for a little over one month now, ushering in a new generation of video games (sorry, Wii U). If you were on the fence about purchasing a PS4 at launch due to the lack of compelling software that tends to plague console launches, but then suddenly reversed your decision and now you don’t know where to get one, stock is still available, but you’ll have to be aggressive in your tracking.WalmartUpdate 12/16/2013: Not every Walmart has them in stock, but certain stores do. Simply head over to the website’s console listing, and check out the stock locator. Type in your zip code, and some stores on the list may have stock. Call ahead just in case, as the lag between the stock updater doesn’t necessarily reflect the in-store availability. Stock in South Florida and New Jersey are available at the time of writing, for instance.Update 11/28/2013: At the moment, Walmart appears to be out of consoles, but you can walk into a Walmart and place a pre-order, which Walmart guarantees will arrive before Christmas. Walmarts are everywhere, varying in sizes and customer traffic, so make sure the Walmart you’re going to will actually receive stock before you go to place the pre-order. Call ahead.Update 11/25/2013: According to Walmart’s website, the chain doesn’t appear to have any in stock, and the stock locator has since been removed. There’s a chance a store in your area has a lingering console or two, so call ahead before you decide to ruin your day by putting on clothes.Update 11/17/2013: It has been a few days since launch, and stock is now low or sold out at Walmarts, you should definitely call ahead.Walmart appears to be the big winner of the PS4 stock lottery, as the chain reported a plethora of PS4s across its outlets. As of this writing, Walmart is your best bet. You can’t order them online, but every zip code we checked — New Jersey, South Florida, and so on — had them in stock on throughout the day at launch. This is also the only major chain that appears to have the standalone PS4. So, if you don’t want to spend around $500 or more for a PS4-and-games bundle, Walmart is the place you should check first. Unfortunately, you’ll have to actually go to a Walmart, so if you live in major cities that do not have one, like New York, you’ll have to venture out into the unknown.Check your product availability store locator before you make the trip.Toys R UsUpdate 11/28/2103: Nothing has changed on this front, so call around before you leave the safety and comfort of your office chair.Update 11/25/2013: The chain’s website declares that there are no consoles available online. However, that doesn’t mean your local store doesn’t have any. As always, call before you make the trip.Update 11/17/2013: The toy chain appears to be sold out of PS4s in major locations, but there is the possibility that lesser-trafficked stores still have some units in stock. Call ahead before you make the trip.If not Walmart, then Toys R Us is your next best bet. We have received reports (friends that get to not be at work as early as us!) that you were able to walk into Toys R Us stores and pick up a console. Of course, the bigger your city, the less of a chance stock will be available due to the rush of customers.Best BuyUpdate 12/162013: Earlier today, Best Buy had some stock available on its website, but they since sold out. Keep checking back, as stock appears to refilling more quickly as we approach the holidays.Update 11/28/2013: Best Buy still hasn’t reinstated the stock locator, so call your local store ahead before you make the trip.Update 11/25/2013: Best Buy removed the PS4 stock locator from the website, and the chain is both likely to receive units before most other chains due to its size, but is also likely to be hit first by customers.Best Buy is a more likely target for gamers trying to get a new console, but using the product availability locator, you were able to see certain stores had plenty of stock throughout launch day. Be warned, though, the only product locator that appeared on the Best Buy website on launch day is for the Call of Duty and Killzone bundles. The CoD bundle comes with an extra DualShock 4, and is around $70 more. This means that if you’re looking for a standalone PS4, you definitely want to call ahead and see if the bundle locator includes the standalone systems. If you don’t mind buying an extra DualShock 4 or an FPS, these bundles will do just fine.You should hurry with Best Buy, though, as stores have mostly run out of stock at this point. It was happening slowly earlier in the morning of launch day, but throughout the day the stock has been dwindling at a faster pace. Big locations were out of stock almost immediately. The Times Square location in New York, for instance, ran out of stock at the time of writing, and the Atlantic Center location in Brooklyn (a major transportation hub and where the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets play) seems to have immediately sold out upon release.TargetUpdate 11/26/2013: Once again, Target’s stock locator is showing a bunch of PS4 units available at various stores in zip codes all over the country. Yesterday, that inventory depleted in a matter of minutes, so if you’re still hankering for a PS4, it’d be wise to call ahead, and venture out into the unknown as soon as possible.Update 11/25/2013: According to Target’s stock locator, certain stores received some units earlier today. So head over to Target’s website and click the “find in a store” link. The add-to-cart button returns an error, so it’s possible that the in-stock units are actually just being listed as a result of an error. As always, call the before you venture out, weary-eyed, into the daylight.On launch day morning, you were able to order online from Target, but that option has already come and gone. So, in summary, if you want a PS4 right now and didn’t pre-order one, it appears you’ll have to put on clothes, venture out into the harsh daylight, and walk into a Walmart, Toys R Us, or Best Buy — but you should call ahead because stock has been sitting on shelves since launch, and people have been trickling into locations to pick the console up.GamestopUpdate 11/28/2013: Gamestop is now offering refurbished bundles, but stock is generally unavailable. There’s a Shooter bundle being sold for around $610, which includes a refurbished PS4, two DualShock 4 controllers, Killzone Shadow Fall, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and one year of PlayStation Plus membership. Another refurbished bundle being offered is the Remote Play bundle, which sells for $695 and includes a refurbished PS4, a refurbished PS Vita, two DualShock 4 controllers, Killzone Shadow Fall, the Assassin’s Creed Liberation for the PS Vita, and one year of PlayStation Plus membership.AmazonUpdate 12/16/2013: Amazon appears to be getting stock of the next-gen consoles faster than other outlets, as you can almost reliably get an Xbox One every day now. The PS4 is more elusive on the online outlet, but they do become available. The standard PS4 console became available on Amazon last Thursday, so stock appears to be ramping up in time for the holidays.[Image credit: Justin Ouellette]last_img read more

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo The last time Arizona Cardinals quarterback John Skelton faced the San Francisco 49ers he was entering the game as a replacement for an injured Kevin Kolb.It was Week 14 of the season, and Skelton completed 19-of-28 passes for 282 yards and three touchdowns. He was picked off twice in the game, but the Cardinals won 21-19.Of course, the game brought with it a sense of redemption of sorts, as Skelton’s previous start against the 49ers resulted in a 23-7 loss where the QB completed just 6-of-19 passes for 99 yards with three interceptions. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact 0 Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories Those games don’t mean much for Skelton or the Cardinals right now, other than the fact that the teams will square off again Monday night at University of Phoenix Stadium. The Cardinals, at 4-3 and losers of three straight, could use a win against their division rival.“It’s just a chance to kind of get back on track after these three games that we lost,” Skelton said. “We win this game it kind of rights all wrongs.”It would be nice, wouldn’t it? The Cardinals and 49ers have a strong rivalry, so while any win would be nice, this one would be a little sweeter.Skelton understands that, even though his time with the Cardinals has been when the battles have been a little one-sided. The 49ers have won five of the last six meetings, some — like the meeting in San Francisco last season — in one-sided fashion.“Being here three years, it seems like every time we play the Niners or the week leading up to it, it’s always extra-heightened,” Skelton said. “A lot of guys are a little more focused, a little more anxious to get on the field against these guys.”Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt, always a proponent of the importance of division games, added that he understands there is a “a little bit of a rivalry” against Monday night’s opponent. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “It was nice to finally get a win against them last year,” Whisenhunt said. Whisenhunt likened the rivalries that the Pittsburgh Steelers have with Baltimore, Cleveland and Cincinnati.“This division is becoming a lot like that division, from a physical, smashmouth type, defensive division.“These division games become brawls.” – / 15last_img read more

Latvian bank targeted by FinCEN operates unit in Cyprus

first_imgBy Stelios OrphanidesThe Latvian lender ABLV Bank, which US authorities described ten days ago as “a foreign bank of primary money laundering concern” by the US Financial Crime Enforcement Network (FinCEN), operates an office in Cyprus, unknown to regulators.The ABLV’s Cyprus unit is ABLV Corporate Services Ltd, registered in September 2010, and is a unit of the Riga-based ABLV Corporate Services Holding SIA, a subsidiary of the ABLV Group, according to the website of the Department of Company Registrar and Official Receiver.“The principal activity is informing clients about the branch’s head office services,” a spokesperson of the bank said in an emailed response. In September last year, the size of the bank’s balance sheet was €3.6bn.The Cypriot subsidiary is renting office space in the building headquartering the Chrysses Demetriades & Co, the Limassol-based law firm, the ABLV spokesman said.In a telephone interview also on Thursday, lawyer Michael McBride, a partner at the law firm, confirmed that the latter is renting out space to the bank’s subsidiary just as “we do this with other companies”.“We are not providing and legal services to the bank,” McBride added, a claim corroborated by the search on the website of Registrar of Companies.The Central Bank of Cyprus, the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) and the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Cyprus (ICPAC) said that they are not supervising the activities of the unit. The three supervisory authorities supervise banks, investment and corporate services companies and accounting firms respectively.The operations of ABLV’s subsidiary was the cause of speculation among Cypriot social media users.Two sources familiar with the matter said that the type of activity of ABLV’s Cypriot unit could allow it to circumvent the need for “passporting,” i.e. notifying the Cypriot supervisory authority about its intention to operate in Cyprus after receiving the green light from the Latvian supervisor.FinCEN said that it is “seeking to prohibit the opening or maintaining of a correspondent account in the United States for, or on behalf of, ABLV Bank,” which is reminiscent of the FBME Bank case, the Tanzanian lender banned by the US from transacting in US dollar in 2014. The bank has units also in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, and Hong Kong.The case of ABLV, which is also suspected of aiding North Korea’s missile programme, came days before Latvian authorities arrested the governor of the Baltic country’s national bank on bribery charges, which is currently rocking Latvia whose banking system played a significant role in the laundering of Magnitsky funds as well as in the case of the Russian Laundromat. The latter scheme, uncovered four years ago, showed that Russian criminals laundered billions of euros also through Latvian banks.On Saturday, Latvian authorities detained Latvijas Banka’s governor Ilmārs Rimšēvičs, and released him on Monday. According to a February 19, Washington Post report, Rimšēvičs, who was a day later suspended from his post, requested bribes through an alleged sidekick from a banker.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

now” On the negotiations that went in before the release he said “I did say even if you are going for negotiations if you are not doing so from the point of strength then you cannot make it” The Congressional Budget Office which provides official estimates of the budget impact of proposed legislation is expected to issue a report as soon as Monday that will assess thehealthcare legislation put forward by Republican House of Representatives leadersThe report could influence sentiment toward a bill already under fire from Democrats and some Republicans especially if it suggests the legislation would reduce the number of Americans with health coverage or worsen US budget deficitsRepublicans have long opposed Obamacare formally called the Affordable Care Act on the grounds it was government overreach and led to higher insurance premiums The 2010 law Democratic President Barack Obama’s signature legislation provided 20 million previously uninsured Americans with health coverageTrump has called Obamacare a "disaster" and made its repeal and replacement a key campaign pledgeSeveral Republican lawmakers said on Sunday the replacement bill was unacceptable in its current form including conservative Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas who said the plan could not pass the Senate and could put the Republican House majority at risk in 2018 congressional elections"I believe it would have adverse consequences for millions of Americans and it wouldn’t deliver on our promises to reduce the cost of health insurance for Americans" Cotton saidIn a series of television interviews White House budget director Mick Mulvaney and top White House economic adviser Gary Cohn said the CBO was focusing on the wrong metrics with the estimates it will provide on the number of people who are insured Cohn and Mulvaney said the CBO should instead should analyze whether patients can actually afford to go to a doctor"I love the folks at the CBO they work really hard they do but sometimes we ask them to do stuff they’re not capable of doing and estimating the impact of a bill of this size probably isn’t the – isn’t the best use of their time" Mulvaney told ABC’s "This Week" programSpeaking on Fox News Gary Cohn director of the White House National Economic Council said: "We will see what the score is in fact in the past the CBO score has really been meaningless" "They’ve said that many more people will be insured than are actually insured But when we get the CBO score we’ll deal with that" Cohn said’COWARDLY’The Trump administration’s criticisms of the CBO are unusual Prior administrations both Republican and Democratic steered clear of attacking the credibility of the agency which many lawmakers regard as a neutral arbiter The CBO’s current director Keith Hall was appointed by Republicans in 2015The credit rating agency Standard & Poor’s has estimated 6 million to 10 million people could lose health insurance coverage under the Republican planSenator Bernie Sanders who ran for president in 2016 as a Democrat said it was "cowardly" for Republicans to proceed with a healthcare bill without CBO estimates telling CBS’ Face the Nation show: "This is a disgrace"In recent weeks Trump administration officials and Republican lawmakers have criticized what they said were overly optimistic estimates from the CBO of the number of Americans who would sign up for health insurance on government-run exchangesThe CBO estimated in 2013 that 22 million people would be purchasing insurance through the exchanges in 2016 Only 104 million were signed up for those plans by the middle of last year according to Department of Health and Human Services dataThe House Republican legislation would scrap tax penalties for Americans without health insurance roll back an expansion of Medicaid insurance for the poor and replace Obamacare’s income-based subsidies with a system of fixed tax credits to help people buy private insurance on the open marketCohn also disputed the notion that millions of people on Medicaid would become uninsured as Obamacare’s expansion of the program is rolled back over a period of years He said many of these people would be transitioned into new private and employer-sponsored plans that would become more affordable under the Republican planHouse Speaker Paul Ryan the Republican plan’s top backer in Congress said he was "certain" the CBO would show a reduction in the number of Americans with coverage"You know why Because this isn’t a government mandate" Ryan told NBC’s Meet the PressConservative Republicans said however they could not support the plan without significant changes Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio a founder of the conservative House Freedom Caucus said it did not go far enough to meet Republicans’ promise to kill Obamacare"We told them we were going to replace it with something that would bring down the cost of insurance That’s what we told them" Jordan told Fox News Sunday

been pursuing the politically-sensitive Rs 64-crore Bofors pay-off case in the Supreme Court has questioned the move of the CBI to appeal against a Delhi High Court decision quashing charges against the Europe-based industrialists the Hinduja brothers The apex court on 1 September had posted for hearing in the week beginning 30 October the 12-year-old appeal filed by advocate and BJP leader Ajay Agarwal Agarwal had unsuccessfully contested the Lok Sabha elections in 2014 from Rae Bareli against Congress President Sonia Gandhi Agarwal has said in a letter addressed to CBI Director Alok Verma that instead of filing an appeal against the high court judgement the agency should respond to his criminal appeal and clarify its stand through an affidavit in the top court He has said that the filing of a fresh appeal by CBI would delay the matter which is coming up for hearing "I don’t know who has advised CBI to do this but certainly it is ill-advised and it is not a prudent step of the CBI and it could delay the matter for a long time" he said in his letter File image of a Bofors gun AFP The letter to the CBI has come in the wake of the recent claims by American private detective Michael Hershman who has alleged that the then Rajiv Gandhi-led Congress government had sabotaged his investigation The CBI recently said it would look into the "facts and circumstances" of the Bofors scam as claimed by Hershman who is the president and CEO of US-based private detective firm Fairfax and has claimed in recent television interviews that Rajiv Gandhi was "furious" when he (Hershman) found a Swiss bank account code named "Mont Blanc" Agarwal has written to the CBI against its decision to seek the permission of the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) to file an appeal against the high court’s 2005 order saying such a step would further delay the hearing in the matter He has requested the CBI director to look into the possibility of filing an affidavit on his appeal in which notices had been issued to all the respondents including the agency in 2005 He said the news had come on 10 August that the CBI was going to support his criminal appeal in the Supreme Court and that was "a welcome step" He had written letters on 14 August and before that on 3 August stating that the CBI should file a detailed reply in his appeal He further said the CBI should clarify its stand before the apex court in writing He also said that the agency should issue a statement that a total of Rs 477 crore was spent on the entire probe into the case according to an RTI reply given to him by the agency on March 21 2011 He claimed that the high court judgment had "erroneously mentioned" the figure of Rs 250 crore on 31 May 2005 "In these circumstances I herewith request you that instead of filing SLP (special leave petition) the CBI must file an affidavit immediately in my criminal appeal may be a short one and state everything with documentary evidence which the CBI desires to raise in the SLP" he said in his letter Justice R S Sodhi of the Delhi High Court since retired had on 31 May 2005 quashed all charges against the three Hinduja brothers — Srichand Gopichand and Prakashchand — and the Bofors company and had castigated the CBI for its handling of the case saying it had cost the exchequer about Rs 250 crore The apex court had on 18 October 2005 admitted Agarwal’s petition which was filed after the CBI failed to approach the top court with the appeal within the 90-day deadline following the high court verdict The top court’s 1 September order on the plea seeking an early hearing of the appeal assumes significance in the wake of a demand in Parliament by ruling BJP MPs for reopening the probe into the Bofors kickback scandal after media reports quoting Swedish chief investigator Sten Lindstrom suggested alleged bribery at the top level Before the 2005 verdict of Justice Sodhi another judge of the Delhi High Court Justice JD Kapoor (since retired) on 4 February 2004 had exonerated late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in the case and directed the framing of the charge of forgery under section 465 of the IPC against the Bofors company The Rs 1437-crore deal between India and Swedish arms manufacturer AB Bofors for the supply of 400 155mm Howitzer guns for the Indian Army was entered into on 24 March 1986 Swedish Radio on April 16 1987 had claimed that the company had paid bribes to top Indian politicians and defence personnel The CBI on 22 January 1990 had registered the FIR for alleged offences of criminal conspiracy cheating and forgery under the Indian Penal Code and other sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act against Martin Ardbo the then President of AB Bofors alleged middleman Win Chadda and the Hinduja brothers It had alleged that certain public servants and private persons in India and abroad had entered into a criminal conspiracy between 1982 and 1987 in pursuance of which the offences of bribery corruption cheating and forgery were committed The first chargesheet in the case was filed on 22 October 1999 against Chadda Ottavio Quattrocchi then Defence Secretary S K Bhatnagar Ardbo and the Bofors company A supplementary charge sheet was filed against the Hinduja brothers on 9 October 2000 A special CBI court in Delhi on 4 March 2011 had discharged Quattrocchi from the case saying the country could not afford to spend hard-earned money on his extradition which had already cost Rs 250 crore Quattrocchi who fled from here on 29-30 July 1993 never appeared before any court in India to face prosecution He passed away on 13 July 2013 The other accused persons who have died are Bhatnagar Chadda and Ardbo The BlackBerry phone officially died to me about two months ago when.

practices It can only intensify and in that backdrop it`s hard to see Sri Lanka doling out more projects even under Rajapaksa" said an Indian government source China`s Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said Beijing believes the people and government of Sri Lanka have the wisdom to "appropriately handle" the situation and China hopes all sides can resolve differences via dialogue to protect the country`s stability Harinda Vidanage director of the Bandaranaike Centre for International Studies a thinktank in Colombo said Sri Lanka had become a greater strategic prize after the pro-China president of the Maldives Abdulla Yameen lost the election "For China both Sri Lanka and Maldives were very important in their effort to gain a foothold in the Indian Ocean China to certain extent lost the Maldivian connection when Yameen lost the elections" he said Shailesh Kumar Asia director at the Eurasia group said the changes in Sri Lanka would benefit China "While Beijing lost a pro-Chinese government earlier this month in the Maldives it will make up ground in South Asia with the change of guard in Sri Lanka" he said adding that it came as Sri Lanka`s economy was in financial difficulties "The decision to bring Rajapaksa back into the mainstream is likely intended to open the flow of Chinese funds given the close relationship he cultivated with the Chinese leadership"Dalrymple spoke with Dayton last week after a recent statement issued by the Minnesota governor’s spokesman who said Dayton and his administration would “do everything to ensure that Minnesota’s best interests are not trampled” by the diversion projectThat statement prompted Dalrymple to call his fellow governor early last week with a suggestion for Dayton and his administration Dalrymple press aide Jody Link said“He encouraged them to speak to leaders in Moorhead and Clay County and hearing specifically from them about whether there is a need for this project” she said “He wants them to hear directly from the local leaders”Matt Swenson Dayton’s press secretary confirmed that the two governors spoke on the phone and will stay in communication“It was a very productive conversation and they’ll continue to have those” Swenson said “Certainly the governor will be in touch with local folks I know he plans to go to Moorhead soon” but is not sure a visit has been scheduledThe city of Moorhead and Minnesota’s Clay County are members of the Diversion Authority which is working with the Army Corps of Engineers to build the $18 billion project authorized by CongressThe flood control project would include a 36-mile diversion channel and “upstream staging area” that would temporarily store water when the Red River reaches significant flood stagesWilkin County in Minnesota and Richland County in North Dakota both upstream of the diversion have joined in a lawsuit to try to block the diversion’s upstream retention feature which would temporarily hold water over an area of 32500 acres when the Red River levels are 35 feet or higherThe Minnesota Department of Natural Resources which is conducting an environmental review of the diversion project that is expected next spring is trying to join the lawsuit filed by the upstream opponentsThe DNR took that action after the Diversion Authority began construction several weeks ago on a ring dike to protect Oxbow Hickson and Bakke subdivision all on the North Dakota sideThe DNR had asked the Diversion Authority not to build the project until it completes its review but diversion leaders decided to go ahead with the ring dike saying the communities need protection from severe floods regardless of whether the diversion is built In tandem with the diversion channel the cities of Fargo and Moorhead also are building levees to protect the cities against the 100-year flood level and to allow significant water to pass through in tandem with the diversion to minimize downstream impactsMoorhead Mayor Del Rae Williams said city officials are eager to learn the result of the Minnesota DNR environmental review of the flood diversion project She compared the state’s review to a patient getting a “second opinion” from specialists at the Mayo Clinic“Right now we’re just waiting to see what the DNR decision is” Williams said If the DNR decision is at odds with the Army Corps of Engineers plan the corps would have to offer a different flood protection plan to protect Moorhead and other areas she said“The truth is we are in Minnesota and if our state organization says it’s not the way to go and the Diversion Authority says they’ll go ahead with it I don’t think we have a choice we have to pull out if it That’s my understanding”Williams added that she did not want to speculate about what the DNR would decide and takes her advice from experts “I have a tendency to hear what the engineers say not the politicians” she said “The rest is just drama”Kevin Campbell a Clay County commissioner and Diversion Authority board member said all of the engineers who have studied Fargo-Moorhead flood control have determined that a diversion is needed and that levees – even with significant water retention projects – will not provide adequate protectionCampbell said he was surprised to see Dayton take a position on the diversion project before the DNR finished its reviewHe also pointed out that federal and state leaders had said local governments must take the lead on Fargo-Moorhead flood protection as the metro area began to pursue better flood protection after the record 2009 Red River floodAfter lengthy review local leaders on both sides of the river came down solidly in support of the diversion Campbell said“I think he was minimizing quite a bit the value of this project to Minnesota” Campbell said of the statement by Dayton’s spokesman “The economic impacts to Moorhead would be very severe” if a flood devastated FargoAlso even though Moorhead is close to achieving 100-year flood protection Fargo officials expect to have that level of protection in about four years“Levees can fail” Campbell said “What if the levee breaks on the Minnesota side Then all of a sudden we’re not sitting so pretty”Darrell Vanyo a Cass County commissioner and Diversion Authority board chairman agreed with Campbell that it’s a positive development that the two governors are talkingVanyo agreed with Dalrymple that Dayton should consult with local leaders in Minnesota and said it also would be a good idea for him to talk to the corps officials in St Paul to learn more about the projectGrand Forks ND – 87 passed away on Thursday January 5 2012 at Altru Hospital in Grand Forks Funeral Service: 1:00 pm on Tuesday January 10th at Calvary Lutheran Church in
