Sears gets another reprieve from liquidation

first_imgNEW YORK — Sears is getting another reprieve from liquidation after its chairman and largest shareholder revised his bid to save the iconic brand.The Hoffman Estates, Illinois-based retailer says it has accepted Eddie Lampert’s bid through an affiliate of his ESL hedge fund that could keep 425 stores open and save tens of thousands of workers, according to a hearing on Tuesday at the bankruptcy court in White Plains, N.Y. The bid now requires Lampert to deposit $120 million by 4 p.m. Wednesday through his hedge fund.The revised bid is not official, and will be evaluated in an auction set for Jan. 14 that will compete with other bids from liquidators looking to shut it down.Anne D’Innocenzio, The Associated Presslast_img

Focus in Myanmar on saving lives not politics Ban Kimoon tells Assembly

16 May 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says the United Nations is concerned with saving lives, not with politics, as he tries to ramp up aid efforts following Cyclone Nargis which struck Myanmar and has severely affected up to 2.5 million people. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says the United Nations is concerned with saving lives, not with politics, as he tries to ramp up aid efforts following Cyclone Nargis which struck Myanmar and has severely affected up to 2.5 million people. Addressing members of the General Assembly, Mr. Ban said, “I want to emphasize that this is not the time for politics. Our concern right now is to save lives – to help the Government of Myanmar and its people.” He said that he had asked UN Emergency Relief Coordinator John Holmes to deliver a third letter to Myanmar’s leadership with the aim of discussing how the world body can assist the Government’s immediate and longer-term relief effort. He added that unless more aid gets into the country quickly, “we face the risk of an outbreak of infectious diseases that could dramatically worsen today’s crisis.” Mr. Ban. said he hoped that the meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) next week, and a further high-level pledging conference that he has proposed for 24 or 25 May, would help mobilize resources in response to the crisis in Myanmar, as was the case in response to the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004. Turning to the China earthquake, the Secretary-General described it as a “humanitarian catastrophe, no less serious than Cyclone Nargis.” He commended the Beijing authorities for their fast and effective action and expressed his sincere condolences to the victims and their families. Mr. Ban added that, while fully confident in the Chinese Government’s capacity to manage the crisis, the UN has offered resources from its Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) and is dispatching experts from rescue and relief operations. The Secretary-General also said that the current global food crisis “demands urgent, coordinated action by the international community,” and noted the work carried out earlier this week by the international task force on the food crisis which he chairs. He said the task force is working hard to bring together a comprehensive plan in time for the summit on world food security in Rome, scheduled for early June. He called the summit one of the most important events planned for 2008. Mr. Ban also signalled that he was personally increasing his engagement for a successful agreement on climate change at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which is set to take place in Copenhagen in December. The Secretary-General committed himself to raising global awareness on the importance of an effective climate change agreement that all nations can embrace. He also said he would lead by example by reducing the climate footprint at the UN. Mr. Ban’s office earlier announced that he would be unable to attend Harvard University near Boston in the United States to give a speech next week because of commitments related to the current major humanitarian disasters. read more

The sound of silence Rare condition makes music painful for pianist

Family in ‘uncomfortable situation’ after province’s lone otologist leaves Synchrotron light holds promise for imaging of the inner ear Sask. continues to search for an otologist ‘Treasures of musical stories’: 80-year-old concerto gets new life in SSO concert When Lacoursiere visited an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist, she was told her syndrome was a “unicorn condition” — everyone’s heard of it, but no one’s ever seen it. According to Lacoursiere, the ENT told her to “don’t get your hopes up … learn to live with it.”It’s the first time since her injury that she broke down in tears.“That was the first time it occurred to me this might be the new normal, the new forever and ever,” she said.When she was diagnosed, and through meetings with specialists, Lacoursiere was told there were two possible options: learning to live with the symptoms — which is a common solution presented for people diagnosed with the condition — or surgery. Seeing no alternative to continue her livelihood, Lacoursiere visited a specialist in Alberta to get a surgical assessment — and was told she wouldn’t be a good candidate for surgery.The thought of having to live with the condition for the rest of her life was devastating.“Couldn’t listen to music. Had to move the piano downstairs. I couldn’t bear to look at it,” she said. “Even when you’re trying to live a very quiet life, there are times when you just can’t help hearing music.”Despite the severity of her symptoms, there is still a slim hope for Lacoursiere that the worst of what she’s experiencing is resulting from post-concussion syndrome and not her diagnosed SSCD. Lee Stevens, the director of concussion management at Craven SPORT services, said post-concussion syndrome is usually classified as someone having concussion symptoms beyond the average recovery period of two to four weeks, though that time can vary.Stevens said that while the symptoms experienced by Lacoursiere could be caused by a concussion, they “are not exclusive” to a concussion — which makes diagnosis very difficult.“It would be nice if we had a go-to ‘rule it in, rule it out’ sort of test … the reality is we’re not there yet,” Stevens said. “A lot of it ends up coming back to clinical judgement, clinical decision-making on the part of health care professionals.” Stevens said the old method of sitting in the dark and waiting for concussion symptoms to pass by is no longer viable. Every person who comes into the clinic goes through a process of determining when they can “return to learn” and “return to play,” according to Stevens — essentially a schedule to steadily re-integrate themselves back into their work and leisure.Since Lacoursiere struck her head and did not take time to rest and recover before getting right back into playing piano — and because she slipped on ice and struck her head a second time less than a year after the first incident — Stevens said it’s not out of the question for post-concussion syndrome symptoms to linger this long.“There is going to be a certain subset of individuals that go on to have more persistent symptoms that linger beyond the expected period of time,” he said. “The big question becomes at that point … Why is this person still having symptoms when under normal circumstances we would expect them to be recovered from their concussion?”“Quite often, we find with those people that have persistent or lingering symptoms, there may be something going on with one of their other body systems preventing them from getting over their symptoms,” he added.”Lacoursiere’s piano — a longtime centrepiece of her home — is now tucked in her basement. She had it moved there when she got to the point that even looking at the instrument was making her nauseous, associating it with the ear-ringing, head-spinning sickness that now comes with hearing it.“I played three or four songs in church … in October (2017),” she said. “Since I started taking piano lessons when I was four, that’s the longest I’ve ever gone without playing the piano.”She’s been away from playing for a while now, but her former students haven’t forgotten about her. A GoFundMe page was started on Lacoursiere’s behalf, and a fundraising concert was held in late July at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Saskatoon to help her get treatment.It’s a concert she couldn’t even attend.“Ironic, hey?” she said, tears in her eyes. “I always considered myself a junior. I never made it to the top ranks. I just did it … so I feel like I’ve been really honoured.”Lacoursiere hasn’t given up hope yet. She’s going for a vestibular evoked myogenic potential — or VEMP — test at the end of the summer. The test is used to assess the functional capabilities of the inner ear, and will hopefully help her determine whether her severe symptoms are caused by post-concussion syndrome or superior semicircular canal dehiscence.The piano in her basement has been covered with old books, knickknacks, and photocopied sheets of music. Lacoursiere would love to have an excuse to dust it off and play it again, but for the foreseeable future her home will be a quiet one.“Silent Night isn’t all it’s cracked up to be when it’s a reality at Christmas,” Lacoursiere said. “Hearing the stuff, even when it didn’t effect me … I couldn’t stand it.”maolson@postmedia.com Irene Lacoursiere knew something was wrong when she vomited on the piano.On May 28, 2017, Lacoursiere struck herself in the head with a small wooden post while trying to set up a bird feeder in her backyard. She was quickly diagnosed with a concussion. As the days progressed and Lacoursiere tried to continue playing for her students, the lifelong pianist felt like something was off.After all, the sound of a soprano singing voice had never literally knocked her off her feet before.“It felt like nails on a blackboard that punch you in the stomach and make you want to throw up,” she said. “It was just too much.”Lacoursiere didn’t take much time away to rest after her head injury because she was due to play for some of her students in the upcoming provincial music festival. Having never been concussed before, Lacoursiere assumed she’d be able to get back to work within a few days of rest.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.Instead, she returned to work after a very short time away from playing the piano. Lacoursiere was soon back to work teaching lessons when the sounds of the piano and the high notes of the singer she was accompanying made her ill. She threw up and collapsed out of her chair — a violent reaction to sound, even in light of the concussion.“I did not see it coming,” she said of the change. “I don’t know what it was … it was instant.”At that point, Lacoursiere had never heard of bilateral superior semicircular canal dehiscence — a rare condition resulting from an additional opening in the superior semicircular canal in the inner ear caused by physical trauma or genetic predisposition. The additional “hole” in the canal can have adverse affects on hearing and balance leading to dizziness, nausea, physical instability and more that vary in severity depending on the case. The “bilateral” part means it’s affecting both of her ears. Since the injury, Lacoursiere hasn’t been able to play piano or even listen to music. Going out shopping can be a dangerous prospect if there’s music playing in the store or the mall, which has caused her to faint in public. Lacoursiere is often struck by bouts of dizziness and exhaustion, and has to be exceedingly careful with the workload and physical stress she puts on herself.She slipped and fell in the winter — concussing herself again — and was finally diagnosed with superior semicircular canal dehiscence after an MRI and a CT scan. Lacoursiere was relieved that she had an explanation for what was going on in her head.“I got very, very excited … it was a real thing,” she said. “And in some cases, it can be fixed.”Related Liam Richards / Saskatoon StarPhoenix Irene Lacoursiere, a lifelong piano player and a well-known accompanist who in 2017 suffered a head injury and concussion that subsequently has made the sounds of a piano cause her to become physically ill, stands for a photograph near her piano at her home in Saskatoon, SK on Monday, July 15, 2019. Lee Stevens, the director of concussion management for Craven SPORT Services in Saskatoon, said it’s possible for concussion symptoms to last for months after an injury. Photo taken August 7, 2019.

At Davos Forum Ban seeks business help to fight gender inequality climate

He appealed to the investment instincts of his listeners at the annual Forum in the Swiss Alps and their desire for good returns to get behind efforts to release the potential of over half a billion adolescent girls in developing countries currently held back by poverty, discrimination and violence, calling them key to achieving a crucial raft of development goals.“Investors tend to rate opportunities based on their potential for returns,” he told a group of eminent persons from the private sector, academia, Governments and civil society dedicated to achieving the eight United Nations anti-poverty Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).“The United Nations gives girls a ‘gold rating.’ When you invest in their future, you are guaranteed results that multiply across society – on health, education, peace and the welfare of future generations,” he said, highlighting the returns on “girl power.” Addressing a lunch of his MDG Advocacy Group on the sidelines of the Forum, he stressed that investing in girls was vital in the “final push for success.” The MDGs, adopted by the UN Millennium Summit of 2000 aim to slash extreme hunger and poverty, boost access to health care and education, achieve gender equality and environmental stability, reduce maternal and child mortality and the incidence of HIV/AIDS, all by the end of 2015. “We are in a race against time. The MDG deadline is just over 700 days away,” Mr. Ban warned. “You understand that when we give a girl better health, education and well-being, we see results far beyond that individual. A girl is as valuable to our world as a tree is to a forest. When a tree grows up straight and strong, the whole environment benefits. When a girl grows up straight and strong, her family, her community and even her country can feel the positive effects.” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is greeted by Pascal Lamy, Director-General of the World Trade Organization (WTO).

UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe ‹ › He noted that every year a girl stays in primary school boosts her eventual wages by up to 20 per cent, and women and girls reinvest the vast majority of their income – 90 per cent – back into their families. When female education goes up, so does economic growth. “Today I urge you to keep girls at the centre of all of your strategies,” he declared, stressing that this is more than a philanthropic issue. “This is a challenge to do business better. It is a chance to change your institutions so they reflect more enlightened attitudes about girls and include strategies to improve their lives… “When we support girls, they reward society with enormous contributions in creativity, compassion and – yes – girl power.” Mr. Ban set up the Group in 2010 to help him build political will and mobilize global action to achieve the MDGs. It is currently co-chaired by Rwandan President Paul Kagame and Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg. At a later news conference, he singled out climate change as another issue where Governments, business and civil society must cooperate closely to ensure that a 2015 summit in Paris reaches a global legal agreement on a new accord to limit greenhouse gasses and other factors behind the warming, floods, droughts and violent storms that are now occurring more frequently. The goal is to limit the global temperature rise below 2 degrees centigrade. “I am asking Government, business, finance, and civil society leaders to come with bold announcements and actions, because achieving an ambitious and legal climate agreement will require political leadership and clear signals,” he said, referring to a preparatory summit he is convening at UN Headquarters in New York in September.“Many people may have jokingly said this is going to be another talk shop. This is going to be [an] action summit, not [a] talk summit, which will generate much spur in the area of sustainable energy and mobilizing climate financing, and also promoting resilient urban development, cities and transport,” he said following talks with European Commission President José Manuel Barroso and World Bank President Kim Yong Kim. He commended Mr. Barroso for the 28-member European Union’s (EU) recently announced goal of cutting carbon emissions by 40 per cent and producing at least 27 per cent of energy from renewable sources, both by 2030.“The European Union has set a standard that all need to follow,” he said. “We are now at a critical stage in the global conversation on climate change.”At UN World Food Programme (WFP) dinner, Mr. Ban again stressed the need for public-private cooperation in achieving the goal of zero hunger. “You might wonder if that is too ambitious, but I have seen such progress with my own eyes, in my own country, in my own lifetime,” he said, noting also that the number of hungry people in China has dropped by 114 million since 1990, 10 million Brazilians are no longer hungry, and over 30 other countries have already met or exceeded the MDG to halve the proportion of their populations who are hungry.“This success has been achieved through political will, concerted action and private sector engagement. Each country has chosen their own path, but they all made ending hunger a political priority. It has been a joint effort – involving governments, farmers, civil society, academia and the private sector. From small-scale farmers who trade their surplus at the village market to billion-dollar multinational corporations, business has played a vital role. This is needed now more than ever.”Mr. Ban wrapped up the themes at a dinner of the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, with the participation of 8,000 companies and 4,000 civil society organizations from 145 countries, which seeks to link business engagement with global priorities, including poverty and disease eradication, climate change mitigation, women’s empowerment, children’s and labour rights, and fighting corruption.He again stressed the imperative of business participating in the efforts to combat climate change, achieve the MDGs and define a post-2015 development agenda for eradicating extreme poverty and protecting the planet’s resources.“Lives are at risk; businesses, small and large; economies; the security of nations,” he said of climate change. “The evidence is all around us. We need to act. Now. Together.”“If you have not yet joined the Global Compact, I encourage you to do so,” he added. “Today, I appeal to each of you to become advocates for climate action and the post-2015 agenda and sustainable development.” read more

Blanhum one of the most successful Crime Chiefs

Current Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum is one of the most successful Crime Chiefs to have served in the Guyana Police Force in recent memory. And he has created a reputation that soars higher every time he comes under public scrutiny.This is according to Senior Counsel Ralph Ramkarran, who also had this to say of Blanhum: “The Crime Chief does not court the press, but every time he comes under public scrutiny, his reputation soars. He spoke truth to power, and was quite clear that the story of the complainant Andrif Gillard was ‘inherently incredible.’ The results show that he is one of the most successful Crime Chiefs in recent memory. Even though Guyana still lives in fear of crime, there would be much public concern if there is second-guessing of the work of the Crime Chief.”Blanhum has told the CoI into the plot to assassinate President Granger that on March 29 he received a call from the Ministry of Public Security informing him of the alleged plot. The caller, a female, told him that Andrif Gillard was at the ministry making the accusations. Blanhum said he immediately made contact with Divisional Commander Clifton Hicken, and because of the nature of the allegations, a decision was taken to have the Major Crimes Unit investigate the matter.Blanhum said he had received several reports of Gillard frustrating the investigation. He said GPF Legal Adviser Justice Claudette Singh (ret’d) did not recommend any charges to be made in the matter because the evidence was tenuous and there was simply nothing with which to charge anyone.As his testimony continued, the Crime Chief clashed with Commissioner Slowe when asked whether he had checked to ensure that a record was made of the incident in the ‘A’ Division log. Blanhum said he is not responsible for finding out whether proper records are documented, because he functions at the executive level of the GPF and there are supervisors and other ranks below him who are tasked with those responsibilities.He also related that he does not find it strange that the men were released less than 24 hours following the commencement of the investigations.Slowe and Blanhum clashed once more when the Commissioner asked the Crime Chief why the matter was not being treated as treasonous. Blanhum replied that the offence was treated as “incitement to commit murder”, although the allegations had implications for the life of the President. He said he relied on facts, and not feelings.Based on legal advice, he said he viewed the information obtained as ‘tenuous,’ and not sufficient to base legal charges.Crime Chief Wendell BlanhumBlanhum expressed satisfaction with the investigation. “The Crime Chief has been rightly praised for his work in the past,” Ramkarran wrote.He added that Blanhum was only acting on the advice of the Police Legal Adviser, former Justice of Appeal Claudette Singh, who advised that no charges be brought against the accused, Nizam Khan, since the Police have evidence to show that Gillard was making up the story.“With such conflicting evidence in the Police file, there would have been no hope of a conviction. In fact, based on their investigations, according to the evidence of Corporal Keion Benjamin, the Police concluded that Andrif Gillard should be charged for giving false information to the police,” Ramkarran commented.Since assuming responsibility as Crime Chief, He has reopened several high profile cases, such as the execution of fashion designer Trevor Rose; the 1993 murder case of Monica Reece, and the robbery/murder of Sheema Mangar.Mashramani Costume Designer and Events Coordinator Trevor Rose was gunned down on January 26, 2014 while sitting in the back seat of a Toyota 212 motor car on the Eccles Public Road, East Bank Demerara (EBD). He had fathered eight children, and the investigations are progressing according to the Police.Former Demerara Bank employee Sheema Mangar, 20, was the victim of the brutal robbery sometime after 18:00h on September 10, 2010, as she waited for transportation on North Road. She chased the robber, who jumped into the car that hit her down and dragged her from outside the Bedford Methodist Church, at Camp Street and North Road, to the intersection of Camp and Church Streets. She died hours later at St Joseph Mercy Hospital.The body of 23-year-old security guard Monica Reece was dumped from a speeding pickup in the vicinity of the Geddes Grant building (now Courts) on Main Street, Georgetown on April 9, 1993 (Good Friday night). At the time of the murder, now Minister of Citizenship, Winston Felix, was Crime Chief. He subsequently retired as Commissioner of Police. At that time there was a prime suspect, but he mysteriously vanished.Blanhum and a team of detectives were able to crack the murder case of Babita Sarjou, in May 2016.Since Blanhum took the post, the Guyana Police Force (GPF) has been solving a greater percentage of crime. according to Ramkarran Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedCrime Chief Wendell Blanhum demotedDecember 4, 2017In “Local News”Crime Chief commends Detectives for solving murders; close eye being kept on ‘staged robberies’September 15, 2015In “Crime”Ramnarine’s testimony to CoI a “deliberate falsehood”- Crime ChiefAugust 16, 2017In “Crime” read more

Vulcan 91 preview

first_imgMaptek Vulcan 9.1 contains new tools for underground scheduling, stope access design, implicit modelling, pit optimisation and more. Vulcan software, says Maptek, “provides the mining industry with the most advanced 3D geological modelling, mine design and production planning solutions.” It is in use across the globe with applications ranging from exploration, through geological modelling, design and planning to rehabilitation. Intuitive tools help operations all resource types and mining techniques improve productivity. The primary new features of Vulcan 9.1 are Gantt Scheduler for underground, the second phase of the Implicit Modelling capability and Level Designer for stope access design. Maptek Vulcan 9.1 also contains major enhancements to Borehole Geophysics, Stratigraphic and HARP Modelling tools and Pit Optimiser.Eric Gonzalez, Vulcan Product Manager provides a preview of the upgrades and their impact.“Vulcan 9.1 delivers improvements across the board. We want to ensure customers spend less time in processing data, allowing more time for critical analysis and decision making. For example, with Pit Optimiser, a calculation that took four hours now takes three minutes in Vulcan 9.1.“Where previous versions of Vulcan had to simplify data to solve the problem, the new version will run a calculation in minutes.“Pit optimisations are considerably faster. Improved analysis and viewing tools allow more scenarios to be run in the same timeframe. The result is a superior design based on ‘what if’ scenarios.“With the new Gantt Scheduler users can create, sequence, allocate resources, animate scenarios and report activities efficiently and transparently.“With Implicit Modelling, users can set up large, multi-domain geology models with confidence that all the downstream processes can handle the complexity and size of the data. Enhancements take advantage of computing GPU. There’s virtually no limit on what can be run.“Underground mine engineers will benefit from the faster, streamlined approach to long term strategic planning and detailed design tasks. The introduction of the Gantt Scheduler sets a new standard in integrating design and scheduling.“Underground mine design is fully automated. Click a button and create the mine design at a strategic level. Users can change parameters and get an alternative design in seconds. These scenarios would take days to run manually.“Vulcan 9.1 continues the direction Maptek set several years ago. We provide powerful tools that support geologists, mine engineers and other professionals in achieving their design and modelling goals.“Both Pit Optimiser and Level Designer provide quick previews before running calculations in detail. Users can decide which designs are worth developing.“Pit Optimiser quickly runs multiple scenarios. Users can identify the most effective design without spending days on it.“Level Designer, when coupled with Stope Optimiser, allows users to run totally different layouts without designing each level in detail. A combination of scenarios can be chosen for the final design.“New Implicit Modelling builds on tools delivered in Vulcan 9. Geologists have more control over the process and can have confidence in the results.“Vulcan 9.1 delivers tighter integration of geological modelling, mine design and scheduling. Gantt Scheduler is linked directly with Stope Optimiser and Level Designer tools.“With Pit Optimiser everything is created directly in Vulcan. No need to regularise and manipulate models. No need to import/export data for processing.“In other upgrades, stratigraphic modelling allows users to combine different modelling methods into a ‘hybrid’ approach which makes best use of their available data.“A new interface streamlines interpretation of geophysical information in borehole databases. CAD data is now handled by graphics card drivers for improved performance, building on support for triangulations and block models introduced in Vulcan 9.“Vulcan 9.1 is in the final stages of beta testing. Release to customers is scheduled for November.”last_img read more

Saints Row The Third breaks all the rules in the name of

Apple Sued for Throttling iPhones Without User Consent

first_imgApple faces litigation over the recent confession that it deliberately slows older iPhones to prevent battery damage.The tech titan last week admitted to reducing the function of iPhone 6, 6s, 7, and SE models when the battery is old, cold, or low on power.Now, three separate class-action suits—filed in New York, California, and Illinois—claim Apple did not obtain user consent before interfering.“Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices,” Cupertino said in a statement published by TechCrunch.“Last year, we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during [specific] conditions,” the company line continued. “We’ve now extended that feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2, and plan to add support for other products in the future.”The news broke after a Reddit post sparked discussion about the long-standing problem, addressed via benchmark tests by Primate Labs’ John Poole.Conspiracy theorists believe this is Cupertino’s way of encouraging folks to upgrade their handset to the latest and greatest version. Apple blames the lithium-ion batteries.“We know that some of you feel Apple has let you down. We apologize,” the company said in an overdue attempt to make amends. “There’s been a lot of misunderstanding about this issue, so we would like to clarify and let you know about some changes we’re making.“First and foremost, we have never—and would never—do anything to intentionally shorten the life of any Apple product, or degrade the user experience to drive customer upgrades,” the statement continued. “Our goal has always been to create products that our customers love, and making iPhones last as long as possible is an important part of that.”To “address customer concerns,” Cupertino is reducing the price of out-of-warranty iPhone 6 and higher battery replacements by $50—from $79 to $29. It also promised an iOS software update “early in 2018” with new features “that give users more visibility into the health of their iPhone’s battery.”“As always, our team is working to make the user experience even better, including improving how we manage performance and void unexpected shutdowns as batteries age,” Apple’s message said.But for some iOwners, this is too little too late.Plaintiffs from Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, and North Carolina are in agreement: The global firm is “fraudulently forcing iPhone owners to purchase the latest model” (in this case, iPhone 8, 8 Plus, or X).“Apple’s software updates purposefully slowed or ‘throttled down’ the performance speeds of [certain iPhones] because operating system software updates wreaked havoc on batteries within these model devices,” the complainants said in an Illinois filing.This move reportedly violates a number of state acts protecting consumers from deceptive business practices.“Corporations have to realize that people are sophisticated and that when people spend their hard-earned dollars on a product, they expect it to perform as expected,” the plaintiff’s attorney, James Vlahakis, told the Chicago Sun-Times. “Instead, Apple appears to have obscured and concealed why older phones were slowing down.”A New Yorker, New Jerseyan, and three Floridians are leading a claim in the Eastern District of New York, boasting more than 100 putative class members hoping to collect $5 million in compensation.Two Los Angeles-based litigants, meanwhile, seek damages for all U.S. owners of Apple smartphones preceding the iPhone 8.Users with older iDevices have reported that replacing the battery increases their phone’s performance.

Governors want guidance on unemployment for federal workers

first_imgLANSING, Mich. — The governors of Michigan, New York and Washington are asking the Trump administration for guidance on whether states can provide unemployment benefits to federal employees who are working without pay during the shutdown.Govs. Gretchen Whitmer, Andrew Cuomo and Jay Inslee — all Democrats — issued a joint statement Friday. They say their states are providing unemployment benefits to furloughed federal workers, but federal regulations prevent them from giving the same assistance to those who continue to work without pay.They are calling on the U.S. Department of Labor to provide “clear, unambiguous guidance” on whether the rules can be waived. They say there is no “rational justification” to deny workers the same short-term relief that furloughed employees can receive.The shutdown, the longest ever, entered its 28th day Friday.last_img read more

Quake gently rocks Clark County no damage reported

first_imgThere were no reports of damage after a 3.2 magnitude earthquake struck the metro area at 6:15 a.m. Monday.Dozens of email and Web comments came in to The Columbian from those who felt the quake, including several reports from Salmon Creek and Felida.By midday Monday, 206 people in the region had reported to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network that they felt the quake on the “Did you feel it?” section of its website.The tremor was centered about 12 miles below Kelley Point Park in north Portland.

A 2.1 magnitude earthquake was reported in the same area around 5:30 a.m. Friday.Similar-sized quakes have been reported in that area since at least 1972. The last one of the same size was reported there in 1999, said Tim Walsh, chief hazard geologist with the Washington Department of Natural Resources.“The earthquake is a little too deep to confidently tie it to a fault,” Walsh said. “There has been a fair amount of seismicity in that area over the years.”last_img read more

Obama calls wave of children across USMexican border urgent humanitarian situation

first_imgRelated posts:Mexico has key role in confronting surge of Central American migrants Mexico stops Central American migrants from climbing ‘Beast’ train Immigrants find themselves torn between hope, defeat on Obama’s plans Obama administration tightens border policy to stem immigrant flow from Mexico WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. President Barack Obama on Monday declared a wave of unaccompanied children across the U.S.-Mexican border an “urgent humanitarian situation” and directed federal agencies to coordinate a response to provide housing and other services.Officials said the response – which is being led by Federal Emergency Management Administrator Craig Fugate – will provide the children with medical treatment, food and mental health services.According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families, 24,668 unaccompanied minors were apprehended at the U.S.-Mexican border in fiscal 2013. Officials expect the annual number will jump to nearly 60,000 by the end of fiscal 2014.Obama announced the response in a memo released Monday.“The children that are arriving are a particularly vulnerable group,” Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas said on a conference call. “They have often survived a hazardous journey to have arrived here.”Officials said most of the children are from Mexico and Central America, and are fleeing violence and poor economies in their countries or are seeking to be reunited with family members in the United States, officials said. They often are brought to the border by smugglers known as coyotes.Cecilia Munoz, director of the White House domestic policy council, also said there are rumors and suggestions that the increase may be in response to false gossip that children are allowed to stay in the United States despite immigration law or that immigration reform may benefit minors. Munoz said the United States is working closely with the governments of Mexico, Honduras and El Salvador to distribute public service announcements.More than 1,000 minors are being housed at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. Officials will fly other children to a base in Ventura County, Calif., that can house up to 600 and probably will open later this week. Lackland opened its doors to the children last month. Most children are housed in group homes that are operated by a contractor.

David McNew/Getty Images/AFPThe children stay in a facility for an average of 30 to 45 days and are released to a parent, relative or sponsor. The release of a minor, however, doesn’t stop removal proceedings if deemed appropriate.Obama’s announcement comes after White House budget officials informed lawmakers Friday that the projected cost of caring for and resettling young migrants from Mexico and Central America could top $2.28 billion in fiscal 2015 – more than double what the Office of Management and Budget requested for 2015 a few months ago.The issue of apprehending, temporarily housing and then resettling the children is expected to be one of the most complex and politically charged elements of House and Senate negotiations over how to fund the government, said aides familiar with the process. The House and the Senate have been moving to approve 12 bills that set spending levels for federal agencies in hopes of completing the appropriations process by Oct. 1.House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., called the influx of unaccompanied children “an administration-made disaster.”“Word has gotten out around the world about President Obama’s lax immigration enforcement policies and it has encouraged more individuals to come to the United States illegally,” Goodlatte said in a statement. He added that “enforcement at the border and in the interior of the U.S.” and “not another bureaucratic task force” would better solve the influx of children.© 2014, The Washington Post  Facebook Commentslast_img read more

first_img 1 Comments   Share   Williams has intercepted at least one pass in each of his first 10 NFL seasons, and with 30 for his career, is someone who came to Arizona with bit of a track record. Even still, he was a mid-camp pickup, which means his role is anything but secure.It is with that in mind he has one, fairly simple goal with regards to what he’s hoping to show the coaches.“That I can still play, obviously,” he said, with a laugh. “That I can still play — which they already know. I’m just doing what I do, continuing to work on my technique, kind of get back into the flow of things, getting my footwork right and getting ready to go.”And while Arians has said Justin Bethel is the frontrunner to be the team’s No. 2 cornerback, Williams said he sees the competition as being open because, frankly, that’s how competitions work.“I mean, it’s a cliche statement, but really that’s the way I’ve always treated it,” he said. “No matter where I was, if I was the No. 1 corner coming into the season, No. 2 — I always saw there was an opportunity for someone else to come in and make a name for themselves and compete for that spot.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories GLENDALE, Ariz. — For the first time since the Red & White Practice more than a week ago, the Arizona Cardinals practiced in front of fans inside University of Phoenix Stadium on Tuesday.The two-hour session saw the team in pads, while former Cardinal and newly-inducted Hall of Fame member Kurt Warner provided commentary for NFL Network, which was broadcasting live from Glendale.It also may have served as the official beginning of another game week, as the Cardinals are just a few days away from hosting the Oakland Raiders.

Though he has been with the team for just a couple of weeks, he’s already looking like he belongs.“Tramon is coming on fast,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. “He’s learning what to do — he’s learning our defense. He knows what to do. He’s played 10 years.”The 34-year-old is entering his 11th NFL season, and it appears his experience is paying off.“It’s funny, I’m not really thinking right now — really not thinking,” he said after practice Tuesday. “I kind of feel that once you know the concepts of certain coverages, you always know it. It’s just the adjustments during plays when guys are moving, can you make the correct adjustments, and that’s really where it’s at right now.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Notable– Tyrann Mathieu batted away a pass early in practice.

Victim of road accident awarded €500000

first_imgA 28-year-old man, who lost his right leg and the sight from his right eye in a road accident in January 2017, received €0.5 million as settlement from the insurance company of the man who caused the accident, it emerged on Thursday.According to local daily Alithia, the Limassol man had been riding his motorcycle when a car, driven by a 70-year-old man, cut him off.The ensuing crash left the 28-year-old in a three-week coma, with severe injuries to his head and right leg.Doctors concluded that the leg damage was irreparable and had to amputate it off just below the kneecap.The man also lost sight in his right eye and required several operations to treat severe head injuries.He was in hospital for a total 2.5 months, of which two were in intensive care.Once released, he hired lawyer Michalis Neocleous to sue the 70-year-old’s insurer for damages.The lawyer managed to secure an out-of-court settlement for his client to the tune of €0.5 million, since responsibility for causing the accident was laid squarely on the man who drove the car.Payment was received earlier this week, following legal paperwork filed by Neocleous in March.Speaking to the paper, the lawyer said his client comes from a working-class family, and was a labourer himself.But since the accident, he added, he has been unable to work, so he tried to expedite proceedings.“If the case had gone to court, it would have taken around six to eight years to get a ruling,” he said.Neocleous referred to a similar case involving a man who lost his leg in a workplace accident, in which it took the courts 12 years to render a verdict.“To its credit, the insurance company adopted a human stance and showed good will, resulting in the payment being processed within just four months,” he said.This settlement, he added, was the single largest the insurance company has ever paid out, with the second-largest being €220,000.In terms of settlements in general, however, Cyprus has seen even larger ones, with Alithia highlighting the case of a man involved in an accident while on his motorcycle, as a result of which he was diagnosed with nerve damage that rendered him unfit to work.In that case, the insurance firm had settled for €1.1 million.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
