Man charged for illegal trapping

first_img“The way it was, was that it was hung about four to five feet off the ground so a wolf would have to run along and jump up to grab it. It’s a particularly disgusting way of trapping,” said Kneller.Kneller says there are certain traps that are allowed to be used.“There are certain traps that have been deemed humane which trappers, through their trapping course, are told what they can and can’t use. So there are certain traps which are regulated and that you have to use to catch a wolf,” said Kneller.The man has been charged $2000 and was issued a two-year probation order which includes no trapping. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A man has been charged in Provincial Court this week for illegal trapping practices.In January 2016, the BC Conservation Officer Service responded to an illegal trapping complaint.Micah Kneller, BC Conservation officer, says upon investigation, the BCCOS found the use of a large treble hook hanging on a tree, a type of trap that is considered illegal for trapping purposes.last_img read more

8 terror blasts in Lanka on Easter Sunday… 215 dead, 500 injured

first_imgColombo: A string of eight devastating blasts, including suicide attacks, struck churches and luxury hotels frequented by foreigners in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, killing 215 people, including four Indians, and shattering a decade of peace in the island nation since the end of the brutal civil war with the LTTE. The blasts — one of the deadliest attacks in the country’s history —targeted St Anthony’s Church in Colombo, St Sebastian’s Church in the western coastal town of Negombo and Zion Church in the eastern town of Batticaloa around 8.45 a.m. (local time) as the Easter Sunday mass were in progress, police spokesman Ruwan Gunasekera said.

The News 1st channel said that 215 people have died in the blasts. Chairman of Sri Lanka Tourism Kishu Gomes said 33 foreign nationals have been killed in the coordinated attacks believed to be carried out by a single group. Director of the National Hospital Dr Anil Jasinghe identified 12 of the 33 foreign nationals, which include three Indians, two Chinese and one each from Poland, Denmark, Japan, Pakistan, America, Morocco and Bangladesh. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, in a series of tweets, identified the three Indians as Lakshmi, Narayan Chandrashekhar and Ramesh. “Indian High Commission in Colombo has conveyed that National Hospital has informed them about the death of three Indian nationals,” she said in a tweet. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from ThursdayAround 500 people, including Indians, were injured in the attacks. No group has claimed responsibility for Sunday’s attacks. However, most of the deadly attacks in the past in Sri Lanka were carried out by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) which ran a military campaign for a separate Tamil homeland in the northern and eastern provinces of the island nation for nearly 30 years before its collapse in 2009 after the Sri Lankan Army killed its supreme leader Velupillai Prabhakaran. Gunasekera said the police was not able to confirm at the moment if they were all suicide attacks. He, however, said that one of the blasts at the Katuwapitiya (Negombo) church has signs of being what looked like a suicide attack. An unnamed official said a suicide bomber blew himself up at the restaurant of the Cinnamon Grand hotel.last_img read more

After the cable was cut and removed, more than 400 customers lost both voice and data services.According to GTT in a release, within a day of that theft, information was received in response to the reward offer and led law enforcement officers to Pasha’s Scrap Yard in Albouystown where a purchaser of the stolen GTT cable was apprehended.GTT CEO Justin Nedd was on Thursday in high praise of the swift response of the Guyana Police Force.Nedd said, “While we remain disheartened by the continued acts of vandalism against our fibre infrastructure and theft of copper cable, we are heartened by the swift response of the police once we had received the information.”GTT and law enforcement officers, buoyed by this arrest, continue to hunt for the saboteurs of the fibre network, he said.At a joint media conference with GTT at the Ministry of Public Telecommunications in July, Minister Catherine Hughes had pledged government’s support in apprehending persons who damage GTT infrastructure, pointing out that there were stiff provisions in the law, referencing Section 131 of the Criminal Law Offenses Act Chapter 8:01.CEO Justin Nedd also said, “we are also very happy with the support we got from the Government, especially from the Ministers of Public Security, Business, and Public Telecommunications during this episode. The government’s actions were in keeping with their commitments made in public.”GTT announced the system of cash rewards at the July media conference in a push to ensure that “perpetrators of vandalism and theft are no longer able to undermine business and put citizens and public services at risk by bringing down the network for their own nefarious gain.” read more

60 of child abuse victims in Guyana are 13 yrs or

A recent study conducted by ChildLink Guyana found that just over 60 per cent of child abuse victims are 13 years old or younger.According to the document, the study was conducted using the first 338 reports of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) received by the Child Advocacy Centres (CACs) operated by ChildLink in Guyana, as well as research interviews with teenage CSA victims and their supportive caretakers.The study found that 60.9 per cent of children reported that they first suffered abuse at the age of 13 or younger, while 26 per cent of the cases reported were children who first suffered abuse at the age of 10 or below.ChildLink also noted in its report that of the 338 children referred to its CACs during the target years, 41 were boys, which accounted for 12 per cent.When it comes to the abusers, the child agency revealed that many of the children said they were abused by more than one offender. A breakdown of figures was done by the agency which disclosed that a whopping 84 per cent of child victims alleged abuse by family members or known persons from the community.Male members of the child’s immediate or extended family, such as a father or stepfather, uncle, step-uncle or cousin, a brother-in-law or grandfather made up the second largest category of abusers which accounted for 40 per cent of those cases.“Stepfathers (12.4 per cent) fathers (6.8 per cent) and brothers (6.2 per cent) alone make up more than one quarter of the abusers reported to the CACs. Type of Abuse: Fully 57.7 per cent of the victims reported to the CACs had experienced forcible rape, which means physically forced penetration of the child’s vagina, anus or mouth with the abuser’s penis, finger, or an object.18.9 per cent of the victims reported to the CACs had experienced sexual contact, consisting of intentional touching of their breasts, bottoms or genitals, underneath their clothing, or being made to touch the abuser’s genitals. 12.4% of the participants experienced statutory rape.That is, they were considered below the age of consent (in Guyana the age of consent is 16 years), and were coerced into participating in sexual acts by an older person. In some instances, threats of violence formed part of the coercion. 4.4 per cent of the children referred to the CAC were victims of penetrative sexual abuse by an older brother or stepbrother,” the report reads.On the other hand, 42 per cent of abusers were non-family members who were known to their victims, such as community members, family friends, or service providers and professionals such as teachers, pastors, or bus conductors. Important to note is that only one of the abusers mentioned in the 338 reports was a woman.According to ChildLink, child sexual abuse is one of the most devastating forms of violence a person can suffer. Without adequate intervention, sexual abuse may permanently change a child’s life’s course, with echoes throughout the child’s family, community and nation.

Best Buy to match online prices in store to stop showrooming

first_imgEver since Internet shopping appeared on the scene online retailers have carried a price advantage over retail stores. It makes sense as to why, too. Retail stores have additional costs including renting that expensive store location, paying staff to serve customers, and paying the bills to keep the lights on and the doors open. There’s also the costs of delivering stock regularly from warehouses to the different stores.The one advantage retail stores do have is the ability to allow consumers  to get hands-on time with products and talk in person with someone for advice. However, savvy consumers want the best of both worlds, so they go to the store to look at what they want, so called “showrooming,” then go order online to save some cash.It seems Best Buy has had enough of this practice and decided to do the only thing it can to compete and get more people buying: match prices in store with online retailers.Apparently this holiday season you will be able to walk into any Best Buy and purchase products that equal e-tailers like Amazon on price. That way the consumers gets the hands-on time and the cheapest price in-store.Best Buy only see around 40% of people leave its stores with a purchase in hand. Showrooming accounts for around 15% of visitors. If Best Buy can get that 15% buying, even at the lower prices that’s going to make for a better quarter.The question is will Best Buy have any profit left to bank by matching online pricing? If it doesn’t then expect sales staff to push you to buy other items at the counter.via The Vergelast_img read more

Scientists Find Universes Missing Atoms

first_imgStay on target Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferNASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This Weekend For years, scientists have been trying to answer the big questions: Why rainbows are so awesome, what makes cats so… weird, and just where the hell is most of the “Stuff” in the universe. We might not have made any progress on those first two, but a team of researchers have managed to find more than half of the “missing” atoms in the universe.These atoms were described as missing or absent because physicists have known for some time roughly how much matter came into being shortly after the big bang. According to their models, 70% of the universe is dark energy with another 23% as dark matter. That’s a little weird, though, given that we have yet to detect or precisely characterize either, but alas. The remainder of the stuff in creation exists either as regular ol’ energy and… well… stuff. You, me, my cat, the sun. That’s all what’s known as Baryonic matter. It only accounts for 4.6% for everything we know of, but there’s a problem there. Of that sliver of all that is, scientists can only detect half. Or at least they could. New work by a team at the University of Edinburgh, though, might clear things up.“This is embarrassing, as you can imagine,” astronomer Renyue Cen of Princeton University told Science Mag. “Not only do we have most of matter which is dark, and most of energy which is still darker; but of the 5% which is normal atoms, most are missing.”The best explanation for the missing stuff was that it had been stretched across the universe in super-thin strands of hot filaments that span between galaxies and clusters. These strands are known as WHIMs or Warm-Hot Intergalactic matter. They’re hot enough to glow in the upper bands of radiation — namely X-rays — but they’re so thin that they’ve been almost impossible to detect.To sort it out, the team used the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation — a signal left over from the Big Bang, and one of our largest pieces of evidence for the event — to backlight, in a sense, the WHIMs. They compared a million pairs of galaxies, separated by relatively narrow distances, and then stitched all the images together, looking for traces of the WHIMs.This works because photons from the CMB can strike electrons in the WHIMs, which are like the connective tissue of the universe. When that happens, sometimes, the photons will gain energy. This is known as the Sunyaev-Zel’dovich (SZ) effect. The new signal is faint and extremely weak, but it’s still measurable by modern instruments. By looking for evidence of the SZ effect, cosmologists claim to have located a good chunk of the missing mass — as much as 30%. Subsequent experiments, led by the next generation of super-powerful X-Ray telescopes, should be enough to give us more direct evidence, and round out the models. But it’s a great indication that we’re on the right track. It’s also a little unnerving when you think about it. Most of the stuff that is, doesn’t exist in any form that’s recognizable to us. And when you think about what percentage of the total mass that we can observe is in stars or black holes, it’s really weird to remember that the overwhelming majority of the universe is bizarre and empty.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

England shocks Spain with impressive away victory

first_imgWith goals by Sterling and Rashford in Seville, The Three Lions shocked Spain in a Nations League match that they needed to win in order to stay alive.For the shocking result of the day, we have the England National Team defeating Spain in Seville, The Three Lions hadn’t even scored a goal in Spanish territory since Gary Lineker scored that Poker back in the 80’s at the Santiago Bernabeu.After not being able to win their first two Nations League matches against Spain and Croatia, a win for this match was something that Gareth Southgate’s side desperately needed and they got it thanks to the impressive front three players they have.Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling had a great night, but they would’ve never scored any goals if it wasn’t for Harry Kane’s stellar performance in which he orchestrated every single play where the English got ahead in the scoreboard at the Benito Villamarin Stadium.It was a clash of two vastly different styles of football, but today was proved that any of them when executed correctly can be lethal.Spain dominated ball possession as usual, but Gareth Southgate studied Luis Enrique’s tactics during the first match at Wembley and managed to respond accordingly for this match with a perfect counter-attacking game during the first half.Love it, @sterling7! 🙌#threelions pic.twitter.com/o6EfVYjcff— England (@England) October 15, 2018The Spanish side got the attacking initiative, but they weren’t able to read the game as England did.The Three Lions had a pretty straight-forward strategy, they used their traditional long ball in order to hurt the Spaniards through a counter-attack and they drew first blood early in the game thanks to a definitive Harry Kane pass to Marcus Rashford.The Manchester United striker made the transition from his own pitch to Spain’s and got the pass from Kane with a lot of room to maneuver, he also spotted Raheem Sterling who got the assist with no marker on him and got to score England’s first goal in front of David de Gea without a single obstacle.A lightning-quick counter-attack that gave us a pretty good idea of what we could expect from England, who had all three strikers in top form this evening.The second goal came right before the full half hour arrived, this time Kane delivered the assist to Rashford in another perfect counter-attack and stunned all the Spanish players because they weren’t able to recover from the first blow after the first goal.The English were literally proving that they still wanted to remain alive in the competition, but they weren’t done with their particular exhibition in Seville this evening.Easy as 1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣!#threelions pic.twitter.com/kZvyPeXjZLDavid Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.— England (@England) October 15, 2018Sterling got another assist to score a brace before the 40th minute, this time he got it from skipper Harry Kane who by this point was already the most valuable player of the match.The English silenced the Benito Villamarin Stadium with that third goal, which was the first setback in Luis Enrique’s spell as the Spain National Team manager.With this partial result, the match went to halftime and we were all expecting a proper reaction from Spain during the second half.It took La Roja nearly 15 minutes to get back in the game, England was very well organized in the back and fought every single divided ball with everything they had.Luis Enrique decided to bring in striker Paco Alcacer who is in great form right now, his impact was fast because he scored a header from a corner kick that got Spain back in the game for a moment.But England’s resilience was just too great and the Spaniards practically lost the match during the first half, coming back from a 3-0 loss is impossible almost every time.Near the final whistle, Sergio Ramos scored Spain’s second goal but he did it during the final injury time minute and the referee decided to end the match right after this second goal from the locals.England is still alive, they need to keep winning their next few matches but they still have chances to qualify after this win.England have become the first team to beat Spain in a competitive international in Spain since Greece in 2003 – 5609 days ago.⚽🇪🇸🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 pic.twitter.com/62AeplpOIx— Football Tweet (@Football__Tweet) October 15, 2018Which of the three England goals was your favorite?

Magazine for Teenage Girls Gambles on Paid Web Model

first_imgNew Moon, the 15-year-old Duluth, Minnesota-based magazine for teenage girls heralded for putting local girls (ages 8 to 14) on its editorial board—and for its advertising-free magazine—is dramatically changing its business strategy to focus on the company’s biggest area of growth: the Web.New Moon Publishing is launching a pair of community-based Web sites over the next two months, for which it plans to charge hefty subscriptions fees to a demographic largely weaned on the free, ad-supported world of the MySpace era.Meanwhile, New Moon is shifting the target age of its 48-page bimonthly print publication to a younger demographic—8-to-12-year-olds—and in March will launch Orb28.com—for its 13-to-15-year-old audience. The site, like the magazine, will be subscription-based and ad-free. As part of the shift, the company is rebranding itself as New Moon Girl Media.“It’s a big risk,” New Moon founder and CEO Nancy Gruver told FOLIO:. She hopes to reach 300,000 paid subscriptions within five years, the vast majority of those online, up from the 30,000 subscriptions the magazine currently boasts. Gruver calls the Orb site a “creative community.” “[The 13-to-15-year-old demographic] are really getting almost all of their media on the Internet,” says Gruver. “We are well-positioned because our magazine already relies on user-generated content.”Gruver plans to charge $40 for an annual subscription to Orb28.com and $18 for a subscription to the Luna Vida Club, a companion site for its print publication launching later this month. The cost of an annual subscription to New Moon is $34.95.So why would a teenage girl who may or may not be smitten with Facebook and MySpace pay $40 to be part of a “creative community”? Because it’s ad-free, Gruver says—and safe. “We offer a safe environment that’s completely ad free, and we have a lot of confidence in that,” Gruver says. “Parents—a certain niche of parents—tell us all the time that that is something they want.”She adds that Orb won’t rely on Facebook-style “profiles” common with social networking sites.New Moon has 16 paid staffers and dozens of unpaid editorial board members—teenage readers that shape its content. According to Gruver, the company operates on thin margins, but is profitable.last_img read more

Folio Show Speaker Report Manage Decline but Strive for Growth

first_img Folio: What’s something that TEN is doing to move into the future? Folio: What are you looking forward to most at this year’s Folio: Show? Folio: What are the biggest challenges faced by media leadership today? Scott Dickey: In traditional media, we have a fundamental issue with decline and economics—managing that decline while striving for growth and innovation in other areas can be a challenge at times. Dickey: It’s a great opportunity to share, and compare and contrast on where some of our peers are having success and challenges. It’s a very disruptive media landscape but also filled with opportunity and rife with innovation. For us, it’s about shared learnings and those few key nuggets of gold that you can apply to your own business. Dickey: I think the most notable thing is that we’ve launched our own subscription video-on-demand/over-the-top channel. Thursday, it launched on Amazon Prime; next week it will launch on Chromecast, and for international users, PayPal. It’s Netflix for gearheads. Dickey: A lot of people are doing a good job of pushing and pulling the consumer in multiple directions, through multi-platform products that have print as just one part of the overall pitch to the advertiser or consumer.center_img As a featured speaker at the Folio: CEO Summit on November 1st (the Summit is co-located with the Folio: Show on November 1st and 2nd), Dickey will talk about strategic thinking and revenue growth. Here, he tells Folio: how he keeps his media company forward-facing.  Folio: What recent publishing innovation has caught your eye? That’s probably our single biggest initiative. As the largest automotive video producers in the world, to now launch a full-fledge subscription-based property—that’s a pretty big deal for us. Another challenge is staying on the forefront of new tech and new vehicles to reach and to monetize your audience, while at the same time, not being distracted by the shiny new thing of the week. As CEO of TEN: The Enthusiast Network, Scott Dickey manages the largest provider of content to enthusiast communities in the automotive and action sports niches. In a changing industry, that’s no small feat. last_img read more

Some Iditarod leaders pushing race pace

first_imgDenali musher Jeff King at the 2016 Iditarod ceremonial start in Anchorage on Saturday, March 5. (Photo by Patrick Yack/Alaska Public Media)Mushers seem to be pushing their dogs a little farther down the trail this year before they opt to take their mandatory 24-hour rest.It’s a move Jeff King predicted at the ceremonial start of the race in Anchorage.“I would just about bet the farm that if significant changes don’t occur in the weather and snow, there will be all kinds of teams going to Ruby and beyond, somewhere in there,” King said.It’s a move King tried to pull off in his 2014 run for Nome. He was within roughly 30 miles of claiming victory in that race, before his team unexpectedly quit and he was forced to scratch from the race.This year some mushers pushed the pace early, it’s a move that Cim Smyth thinks is risky, but he also says he’s worried“There are a couple teams that are way ahead that are way too strong to make up a lot of time on,” he said.Smyth didn’t name names, but he says he’s shooting to complete the race in under nine days.Scott Smith is also hoping to finish up front. In Ophir he said he was in a good position to “battle.”“There’s a lot of good teams here though, so it’s gonna be a battle to the finish but it’s nice being in a position to battle,” Smith said.This is Smith’s fourth Iditarod, so he knows there’s still at least 600 miles of tough trail ahead.“We’re racing dogs. It’s not an easy job,” he said. “We’re dog mushers not ballerinas.”But this year, at least one musher is moving a little more gracefully.Former Iditarod champion Mitch Seavey seems to be having more fun than he ever has in the last three years.“Well I’ve done some things in the past year to take care of myself personally,” he said. “I’ve had a lot of pain, a lot of back issues and things like that, which as a musher you just ignore, but doing this relatively pain free is a hundred percent different than barely being able to stand up.”last_img read more

New simulations suggest runaway stars may be outcasts from binaries

first_img © 2011 PhysOrg.com The two suggest that on occasion some big stars move close enough to binaries (paired stars) that they get pulled into their gravitational field, resulting in an unbalanced state as the trio moves awkwardly through space. After some time passes, the big star gets the boot and as a result of the buildup of energy created between the three, is sent hurtling out into space, becoming a runaway star.Such stars have been the focus of much attention as they travel so much faster than all the other stars around them. Most in the Milky Way Galaxy by contrast plod along at a measly five kilometers per second, so it’s not difficult to see why the speedsters would draw so much attention. Prior to this research, some suggested the big stars got their speed from being near another star that exploded. Other’s theorized that they’d maybe simply paired with another star and the two began moving around one another at a faster clip, similar to ball room dancers. Though in this case, the two would have wound up flinging one another apart in opposite directions in their grand finale.To back up their theory, Fujii and Zwart built a computer simulation of star clusters and found that over time each cluster did indeed include binaries that attracted other stars that were eventually sent packing by the original two. The researchers believe this proves that the majority, if not all runaway stars became such due to being rejected as a temporary third mate for binaries.This new thinking came about when two stars last year were spotted speeding away from a dense group of star clusters believed to be less than two million years old, which seemed to fly in the face of the exploding partner idea, as such stars aren’t thought to explode until reaching at least three million years of age.At any rate, as time passes, it should be easy enough to prove this new theory; all scientists have to do is trace back the trajectories of speeding stars to see if they came from identifiable binaries. How single stars lost their companions Journal information: Science Citation: New simulations suggest runaway stars may be outcasts from binaries (2011, November 18) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-11-simulations-runaway-stars-outcasts-binaries.html More information: The Origin of OB Runaway Stars, Published Online November 17 2011.

Garia woman bitten by Tarantula claims doctor

first_imgKolkata: Scare of Tarantula spiders has reached the city with a woman getting admitted to a private nursing home in Garia after being bitten by a spider. The woman identified as Putul Pailan was performing puja at her home when she was bitten.

Windows Sandbox an environment to safely test EXE files is coming to

first_imgMicrosoft will be offering a new tool called Windows Sandbox next year with a Windows 10 update. Revealed this Tuesday, it provides an environment to safely test EXE applications before running them on your computer. Windows sandbox features Windows Sandbox is an isolated desktop environment where users can run untrusted software without any risk of them having any effects on your computer. Any application you install in Windows Sandbox is contained in the sandbox and cannot affect your computer. All software with their files and state are permanently deleted when a Windows Sandbox is closed. You need Windows 10 Pro or Windows 10 Enterprise to use it and will be shipped with an update, no separate download needed. Every run of Windows Sandbox is new and runs like a fresh installation of Windows. Everything is deleted when you close Windows Sandbox. It uses hardware-based virtualization for kernel isolation based on Microsoft’s hypervisor. A separate kernel isolates it from the host machine. It has an integrated kernel scheduler and virtual GPU. Source: Microsoft website Requirements In order to use this new feature based on Hyper-V, you’ll need, AMD64 architecture, virtualization capabilities enabled in BIOS, minimum 4GB RAM (8GB recommended), 1 GB of free disk space (SSD recommended), and dual-core CPU (4 cores with hyperthreading recommended). What are the people saying The general sentiment towards this release is positive. However, a comment on Hacker news suggests that this might not be that useful for its intended purpose: “Ironically, even though the recommended use for this in the opening paragraph is to combat malware, I think that will be the one thing this feature is no good at. Doesn’t even moderately sophisticated malware these days try to detect if it’s in a sandbox environment? A fresh-out-of-the-box Windows install must be a giant red flag for that.” Meanwhile, if you’re on Windows 7 or Windows 8, you can try Sandboxie. For more technical details under the hood of Sandbox, visit the Microsoft website.
