Quebec special constables seek judgment to increase their ranks at courthouses

first_imgMONTREAL – The union representing Quebec’s special constables took the government to court Monday, seeking a judgment that would bolster their numbers across the province.Special constables have long argued that there are too few of them at the province’s courthouses, where they are increasingly being replaced by private security.They first filed the action against the province in June 2016, calling on the government to reverse that trend.A union representative said in an interview Monday that more constables would help put an end to situations like the shooting of a young man at the courthouse Maniwaki, Que., last week.Quebec’s bureau of independent investigations is probing the altercation between a special constable working alone at the Maniwaki courthouse and an 18-year-old man.The man was hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the head following the scuffle with the constable, part of which was caught on film.Franck Perales, president of the union, said it has been sounding the alarm since 2014 about a shortfall of constables, but their warnings have fallen on deaf ears.The union argues the province has opted for private security for financial reasons, but they lack experience and proper training.Perales said despite this, they routinely perform tasks that should fall to special constables.He said the presence of private security gives the false illusion of a secure environment, citing what happened in Maniwaki on Wednesday as a prime example.Last Friday, the government assured that in the wake of last week’s shooting, courthouses that previously only had one constable on duty would now have two.Perales called that move a step in the right direction.The union has two goals with the court challenge being heard in Quebec City this week by Superior Court Justice Jean-Francois Emond.They want to prove that the province’s Public Security and Justice Departments aren’t respecting their obligations by entrusting courthouse security more and more to private security firms instead of special constables who should perform the tasks.And they want the province to remedy the situation.The union alleges a lack of adequate staffing compromises the safety of employees, the public and constables themselves.last_img read more

Calgary Canada Post workers might not strike for long

first_imgCALGARY (660 NEWS) – Even though rolling strikes are hitting Calgary, Red Deer, and Sherbrooke, Quebec, the work stoppage might not last long for Canada Post employees.“With a mediator there, I’m hoping that he’ll be able to have the issues resolved.”Anna Beale, the Executive VP of the Calgary Local for the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) says ideally the strike could be settled by Thursday afternoon.Workers first hit the picket line Wednesday night in the three cities, and continued Thursday at 6 a.m., and will remain on strike for 24 hours unless the matter can be resolved.Despite the optimism, there is still a lot on the table, with CUPW demanding Canada Post address their concerns over health and safety, long hours, and lack of pay for rural mail carriers.Strikes happened for two days in Toronto, which crippled their main distribution centre.Beale knows customers might be frustrated.“The public has stood behind Canada post for over 150 years, and we are there for the Canadian public as well, because it’s the Canadian public that enables us to have jobs at Canada Post.”Negotiations have gone on for 10 months now.The federal government appointed the mediator on Wednesday.last_img read more

UNs Operation Lifeline Sudan starts push to help 100000 people displaced by

Fighting which began in June has forced thousands to flee from the Western Upper Nile into Bahr el Ghazal. “They have been forced to walk for at least three days and it is estimated that up to 50 per cent of the displaced are children,” spokesman Fred Eckhard reported.The UN’s Emergency Relief Coordinator, Kenzo Oshima, voiced “serious concern” over the plight of civilians caught up in the clashes. “We urge both sides to allow humanitarian access to those in need,” he said. “Both sides should ensure that their armed forces make every effort to protect civilians.”Mr. Oshima also expressed concern regarding the impact of the heavy fighting on civilians which has taken place around Torit in southeastern Sudan. Operation Lifeline Sudan – a consortium of the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the World Food Programme (WFP) as well as more than 35 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) – is targeting some 3 million people in need of humanitarian aid in southern Sudan. read more

Security Council welcomes postelection institutions in Central African Republic

In a statement read out in a formal meeting by Ambassador Adamantios Vassilakis of Greece, which holds the 15-nation body’s presidency for the month of July, the Council, pleased by the successful presidential and legislative elections, which took place in two rounds on 13 March and 8 May, invited the CAR Government and all political and social forces to “consolidate national dialogue and ensure national reconciliation with a view to achieving sustainable development in their country.”Civil conflict in CAR initially erupted in the mid-1990s when soldiers staged a series of mutinies. The UN Peace-building Support Office in the country (BONUCA) was created in February 2000. But tensions continued due to the civil war and political unrest in neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), according to the UN Department of Political Affairs.Just two weeks ago, UN Resident Coordinator Stan Nkwain stressed the risk that impoverished post-election CAR could slide back into conflict if not given immediate aid, and that the Government needed help paying more than three years of salary arrears and in servicing a national debt that is 85 per cent of its gross national product (GNP).In its statement, the Council requested Secretary-General Kofi Annan to explore the possibility of setting up a follow-up committee or enlarging the Committee of Foreign Partner to Follow Up on the Electoral Process to support the reconstruction efforts initiated by the Central Africans.“The Council also expressed concern at the insecurity reigning in the north and west of the country, due to the presence of armed groups in those regions, and expressed deep concern at the deteriorating humanitarian situation, particularly in the north of the country,” Ambassador Vassilakis said.The Council also acknowledged efforts by the Central African defence and security forces to guarantee satisfactory safety conditions during the electoral process, and commended the Multinational Force of the Central African Economic and Monetary Community (FOMUC), France, the European Union, China and Germany for providing decisive support to them. read more

On World Philosophy Day UN highlights importance of critical thinking and reflection

The diversity of philosophies prevalent around the world is humanity’s greatest asset to building an inclusive and tolerant global citizenry, the head of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) said today, marking the tenth edition of World Philosophy Day. In her message for the Day, UNESCO’s Director-General, Irina Bokova, called on nations to invest more in philosophical training for schoolchildren while stressing the “urgent need” to pass on to the world’s youth “the taste for philosophy, its rigour and its joys, from the earliest age.” “UNESCO reaffirms the power of philosophy to change the world, because it can help us to change ourselves by giving weight to our indignation before injustice, lucidity to ask the right questions, and conviction to defend human dignity,” Ms. Bokova said. “In all these ways, it holds the key to a new humanism,” she added, underlining the significance of philosophy in making “sense of questions of peace and sustainable development.” World Philosophy Day is celebrated every third Thursday of November since 2002, with the aim of making philosophical reflection accessible to all – professors and students, scholars and the general public – thereby enlarging the opportunities and spaces for the stimulation of critical thinking and debate. The Day – for which the theme this year is ‘future generations’ – is being celebrated with a number of events, including roundtables, debates and concerts, held in Paris, where UNESCO is headquartered, and at other venues around the world. In addition, a group of schoolchildren will place messages in a time capsule destined to be eventually opened by children of their own age in the year 2062. Ms. Bokova pointed out that the philosophical tradition was both a meeting point and a culmination of UNESCO’s mandate, providing meaning to the content of culture and science and drawing on the free movement of ideas. “Beyond all of our differences, we are all equal in the exercise of reason,” she continued. “This is the sure way to build fairer, more equitable societies, sustained by the energy of critical thinking.” read more

New low profile load and haul team from Atlas Copco

first_img“These two new vehicles are designed to optimize the economic, mechanized extraction of ore in low seam environments,” commented David Ogilvie, Product Manager, Scooptram of Atlas Copco’s Underground Rock Excavation division. “Low profile equipment allows extraction of ore from seams that would otherwise be worked by hand, increasing safety and maximising productivity.”  The new vehicles form part of a complete range of Atlas Copco low profile mining solutions. The Boltec SL roof bolting rig is optimized to perform bolting operations in 1.8 m drifts and can be operated by remote control for increased operator safety. Fully mechanized drilling is also possible with Atlas Copco’s Rocket Boomer S1 L single-boom drill rig that has a height of just 1.30 m. The Minetruck MT436LP has a height of just 2.3 m and builds on the reputation of the Minetruck MT436B, with its proven reliability, demonstrated by many years of successful production work. Key features of the new truck include a forward mounted camera and a reconfigured interior that provides an optimum ergonomic environment. In response to customer feedback, a lower, wider box has been fitted to the MT436LP, which has a tramming capacity of  32.6 t. Atlas Copco has launched two new low profile underground vehicles, the Minetruck MT436LP and the Scooptram ST1030LP, as covered in the feature on underground loading and haulage in IM’s October issue. The two vehicles, purpose built for maximum productivity in low seam mining conditions, are the latest additions to Atlas Copco’s low profile mining fleet. Just 1.84 m high, the Scooptram ST1030LP is 510 mm lower than the standard Scooptram ST1030 and has a tramming capacity of 10 t. It features double display screens in the cab, relaying feed from three cameras to provide optimum visibility and safety. In addition, the ST1030LP incorporates all of the design improvements found in the recently upgraded ST1030, as well as a new, compact, high efficiency hydraulic cooler. An ergonomic T-back operator’s seat and sound suppression panels provide a comfortable working environment. The Scooptram ST1030LP is well matched for loading the new low profile Minetruck MT436LP, making the two new vehicles a great combination for low seam mining.last_img read more

Leaked Windows 8 builds reveal Windows Store and its logo

first_imgWhile those screenshots of the supposed “Windows App Store” turned out, as expected, to be fakes, there’s no doubt Microsoft is working on something along those lines to deliver in Windows 8. In fact, some of the bits are already in place in the leaked Windows 8 builds which have been shared on private FTP servers and torrent sites around the Web.As spotted by some Russian enthusiasts who were digging around in the system folders in the Windows 8 Milestone 3 build, a handful of folders exist which confirm the early stages of the Windows Store. On your Windows desktop, the store will be comprised of several components, including a runtime module, service, and licensing client — each of which is called out in a folder name.AdChoices广告The Windows Store logo is also hiding within the Windows 8 files, though it’s just a 24 by 24 pixel .PNG. Above I’ve blown it up using Photoshop to the best of my abilities. It’s fairly consistent with Microsoft’s other logos, with its multiple stacked squares and rounded corners. Two .HTML pages are also nestled away amongst the files, and based on the font used on the error page it’s safe to assume that the Metro design language will once again be front and center in the Windows Store.The Windows 8 registry is also littered with references to the Windows Store, but no actual executables have been found just yet — and even if they were, Microsoft probably has the Windows Store’s cloud-powered back end completely locked down at this early stage. In fact, the AppxManifest.XML file spells that much out, saying “We need DomainCredentials until we unveil the store.”Read more at (translated)last_img read more

Poll Was the GRA right to call off the Garda strike

first_imgPoll: Was the GRA right to call off the Garda strike? The GRA last night voted to defer today’s strike action by the slimmest of margins. Share25 Tweet Email LAST NIGHT’S DECISION on the part of the Garda Representative Association (GRA) to defer its planned strike action for today came at the very last minute.Recommendations from the Labour Court will now be put the membership of both the GRA and the Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors (AGSI).However, the vote on the part of the GRA’s executive committee which led to the suspension of the mooted strike was carried by just three votes, 20 to 17, suggesting that the association itself is not entirely of one mind as to whether or not it made the correct decision.But what do you think? Would it have made more sense for the GRA to strike given over five weeks’ notice was given to the government of the prospect of industrial action?We’re asking: Did the GRA make the correct decision in calling off the garda strike?

Throw Shade at Climate Change By Planting More Trees

first_img Study: Planting More Trees Key to Combating Climate ChangeScientists Discover (And Climb) World’s Tallest Tropical Tree Stay on target Trees make the world go round: They provide oxygen, shelter, food, fuel, and wood. They conserve energy and prevent water pollution. They mark the seasons and increase property values.And, according to a new study from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, they play a big role in keeping towns and cities cool.“Keeping temperatures more comfortable on hot summer days can make a big difference for those of us who live and work there,” study co-author Monica Turner, a University professor in the department of Integrative Biology, said in a statement.The right amount of leafy cover can lower summer daytime temperatures by as much as 10℉—a real blessing when you’re melting onto the sidewalk.For her research, Carly Ziter biked around Madison with a small weather station strapped to the back of her bike (via Carly Ziter/University of Wisconsin-Madison)As climate change presents new challenges for city planners and heat waves drive up energy demands and threaten human health, trees may turn out to be the hero we need.While roads, sidewalks, and buildings absorb heat during the day and release it at night, a decent amount of shrubbery can shade those surfaces from the sun’s rays. Trees also release water into the air through their leaves, helping to cool the atmosphere.“Tree canopy cover can actually do more than offset the effects of impervious surfaces,” Carly Ziter, lead author of the paper, said. During the day, “an equivalent amount of canopy cover can cool the air down more than pavement will warm it up.”For maximum effect, the green canvas must exceed 40 percent—which means a single city block would need to be nearly half covered by a network of branches and leaves.Ziter biked 10 different transects of the city multiple times during different times of day (via Carly Ziter/University of Wisconsin-Madison)“It’s not really enough to just kind of go out and plant trees, we really need to think about how many we’re planting and where we’re planting them,” Ziter said. “We’re not saying planting one tree does nothing, but you’re going to have a bigger effect if you plant a tree and your neighbor plants a tree and their neighbor plants a tree.”Ideally, these sort-of forests would crop up in residential locations where people are active—not just in parks.“The trees we plant now or the areas we pave now are going to be determining the temperatures of our cities in the next century,” Ziter warned.The full study was published this week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.More on Drones Boost Global EcosystemsBios Incube Grows Trees From Human CremainsGenetically Engineered Trees Can Avoid Spreading Too Farlast_img read more

24 arrested as Sri Lanka attack toll hits 290

first_imgA relative of a victim of the explosion at St. Anthony`s Shrine, Kochchikade church, reacts at the police mortuary in Colombo, Sri Lanka on 21 April 2019. Photo: ReutersThe death toll from bomb blasts that ripped through churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka rose dramatically Monday to 290 — including dozens of foreigners — as police announced new arrests over the country’s worst attacks for more than a decade.More than 500 people were injured in the Easter Sunday assault that saw suicide bombers hit three high-end hotels popular with foreign tourists and three churches, unleashing carnage in Colombo and beyond.Two additional blasts were triggered as security forces carried out raids searching for suspects.There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but police said Monday 24 people had been arrested. The government is wary of stirring ethnic tensions, and the country remained on edge as a home-made bomb was defused at Colombo airport late Sunday and massive security deployed.A nationwide curfew imposed shortly after the blasts was lifted early Monday, but the government has ordered a two-day holiday and schools and the Colombo stock exchange were closed. Still, a steady stream of people and vehicles were seen on the streets of the capital and Negombo.The attacks were the worst ever carried out against Sri Lanka’s small Christian minority, who make up just seven per cent of the 21 million population.At least 37 foreigners were among the dead, the foreign ministry said.The government said three Indians, three Britons, two from Turkey and one Portuguese had died, as well as two people holding both British and US passports.”Additionally, while nine foreign nationals are reported missing, there are 25 unidentified bodies believed to be of foreigners,” the foreign ministry said.Japan’s foreign ministry said one of its nationals was among the dead.- ‘Bodies everywhere’ -The churches targeted included St Sebastian’s in Negombo, north of the capital, which was surrounded by security forces on Monday.Dozens of people were killed at the church, including friends of 16-year-old Primasha Fernando, who was at her home nearby when the suicide bomber struck.”When I got to the church there were people crying and screaming,” she told AFP.”I saw bodies everywhere,” she added in tears. “I saw parents carrying their dead babies. I saw dead people who had hair but didn’t have faces anymore.””Hands and legs were separate from bodies. There was blood everywhere too. The smell was so strong it made me feel sick.”The church’s roof was largely blown out and pews splintered. The floor was strewn with roof tiles and shards of glass.Outside, 24-year-old Denver Malewama and his mother Sunita handed out tea to security personnel.”We want to say thank you because they protect us,” he said.- Government warned -Some Sri Lankans asked how the attacks could have happened after it emerged that the government had been warned about possible blasts.Sri Lanka’s police chief Pujuth Jayasundara issued an intelligence alert to top officers on 11 April, warning that suicide bombers from a group called National Thowheeth Jama’ath (NTJ) planned to hit “prominent churches”.The NTJ is a radical Muslim group in Sri Lanka that was linked last year to the vandalisation of Buddhist statues.Prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said an investigation would look into “why adequate precautions were not taken”.The government said investigators would look into whether the attackers had “overseas links”.Ethnic and religious violence has plagued Sri Lanka for decades, with a 37-year conflict with Tamil rebels followed by an upswing in recent years in clashes between the Buddhist majority and Muslims.Dilip Fernando, who could not get into St Sebastian’s because the church was already packed when he arrived, said the Christian community would not be intimidated.”We are not afraid. We won’t let the terrorists win, no way,” the 66-year-old told AFP outside the devastated building.- Memories of civil war -For many, the blasts brought back painful memories of Sri Lanka’s civil war, when bomb attacks were a frequent occurrence.”The string of blasts brings back memories of the time when we were afraid to go in buses or trains because of parcel bombs,” said Malathi Wickrama, a street sweeper in Colombo.In total, three churches in Colombo, Negombo and the east-coast town of Batticaloa were attacked, along with three luxury hotels in the capital.A manager at the Cinnamon Grand, near the prime minister’s official residence in Colombo, said a suicide bomber blew himself up at a breakfast buffet in the hotel restaurant.”He came up to the top of the queue and set off the blast,” the manager said.Two further blasts happened as police staged raids looking for suspects. At least three police officers were killed in one raid.The attacks drew global condemnation, including from US President Donald Trump and the pope.Wickremesinghe urged people to “hold our unity as Sri Lankans” and pledged to “wipe out this menace once and for all”.The archbishop of Colombo, Malcolm Ranjith, described the attackers as “animals” and called on authorities to “punish them mercilessly”.Embassies in Colombo warned foreign nationals to stay inside, while there were chaotic scenes at Colombo airport as travellers formed huge lines at the only taxi counter that was open.last_img

But do you recall the most underrated Doctor Who villains of all?Each week, I will dig into the depths of the Whoniverse to examine one rejected, misjudged, or altogether forgotten big bad. This time, join me on a journey—to Cardiff.Charles Dickens (Simon Callow) couldn’t have predicted the Gelth (via BBC)GELTHFirst appearance: “The Unquiet Dead” (2005)—season 1, episode 3Home planet: N/ADoctor: NinthCompanion: Rose TylerTime Lords and Daleks weren’t the only ones who got stiffed by the Time War.The Nestenes lost their homeworld, Eve’s species were exterminated, and the Gelth were reduced to gaseous form.A once-humanoid species, the Gelth lost their biological bodies in battle. Their consciousness, however, lived on, and the creatures survived with the confines of any ol’ vaporous environment.Hungry for revenge, they eventually discover a rift—a weak point in time and space—which opens to a funeral parlor in 1869 Cardiff.Attracted to the pipes and gas lamps of the mortuary, the Gelth find they can hibernate in the bodies of decomposing humans, using the corpse as a “vehicle,” as the Doctor put it.There are a classic case of are-they-or-aren’t-they evil: Viewers are introduced to blue glowing fumes as they enter the late Mrs. Peace, who rises from her coffin and kills her mourning grandson, before escaping the morgue. To see Charles Dickens perform at a nearby theater.Simon Callow is Charles Dickens (via BBC)Only able to hang on to one body for so long, the Gelth begin to leaves Mrs. Peace—just as Dickens (Simon Callow) conjures the image of Jacob Marley’s ghost appearing to Ebenezer Scrooge.“It looked like … Oh, my lord. It looked like that!” he shouts from stage, sending the audience into a tizzy.Incited by the screams, the Doctor and Rose rush to the theater, where the Time Lord befriends a reluctant Dickens, and mortuary owner Sneed and handmaiden Gwyneth kidnap his companion.Back at the funeral parlor—Rose saved, the Doctor deputized, everyone forgiven—the group agree to hold a seance, led by clairvoyant Gwyneth, in an attempt to communicate with the dead.When blue vapors fill the room and reveal themselves as remains of the Gelth, the once-corporeal alien race plead with the Doctor to open the rift and allow them to cross over.See, they’re good guys after all!The Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) encourages Gwyneth (Eve Myles) to contact the dead (via BBC)Using Gwyneth as a bridge to cross the rift, the Gelth take temporary respite in Sneed’s corpses. But it soon becomes clear the measly pile of bodies in the morgue will not be enough to satisfy the greedy Gelth.“You said that you were few in number,” Dickens urges.“A few billion. And all of us in need of corpses,” the Gelth (voiced by Zoe Thorne) replies, revealing the intruders’ real intentions to take over the human race.In the end, it’s not the Doctor or Rose who save the day, but writer, social critic, and owner of one hell of a goatee, Charles Dickens.If nothing else, the Gelth (created by Mark Gatiss) prove that you should never judge a book by its cover. Or should you?(P.S.: The Cardiff rift reappears in two later episodes, and is often featured in spin-off series Torchwood, co-starring Eve Myles, a.k.a. Gwyneth/Gwen Cooper.)last_img read more

Supraballs offer a new way to color materials

first_img Play A video shows supraball painted flowers do not change color when the sample is rotated at different angles. Credit: Xiao et al., Sci. Adv. 2017;3: e1701151 Prior research has shown that there are two basic ways to produce color in a material. One is to use materials that have molecules capable of absorbing light, the other is to use materials that cause light to scatter in desired ways using nanostructures. Material scientists have found that using structures to create color has many advantages over those that require absorption, but making them that way has proven to be challenging. In this new effort, the researchers report that they have developed a technique that overcomes those challenges, allowing for the production of colored materials in a way that is fast, simple and scalable.The new technique was inspired by duck and turkey feathers. The team created tiny balls of melanin and then coated them with silica to create structures similar to those found in the bird feathers. Prior research has shown that the spacing between balls of melanin produces different colors. The clear silica coating serves that purpose by forcing the balls farther apart or closer together. The distance is determined by the thickness of the coating—a thick one forces the balls farther apart, while the opposite brings them closer together. Interestingly, observed under a microscope, they are all black. It is only when they are seen from a normal distance that the color emerges. The team notes that changing the size of the balls has no impact on the color produced.The team calls the result of their effort “supraballs.” After creating them and seeing how they worked, they studied them further to understand what was happening. They found that the cores were highly refractive while the shells had a low refractive index, which served to increase reflectance, resulting in colors that were brighter. They note that supraballs could be added directly to paint or plastic base materials to create desired colors and suggest they might also be useful for inks and cosmetic products.

More information: Ming Xiao et al. Bioinspired bright noniridescent photonic melanin supraballs, Science Advances (2017). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1701151AbstractStructural colors enable the creation of a spectrum of nonfading colors without pigments, potentially replacing toxic metal oxides and conjugated organic pigments. However, significant challenges remain to achieve the contrast needed for a complete gamut of colors and a scalable process for industrial application. We demonstrate a feasible solution for producing structural colors inspired by bird feathers. We have designed core-shell nanoparticles using high–refractive index (RI) (~1.74) melanin cores and low-RI (~1.45) silica shells. The design of these nanoparticles was guided by finite-difference time-domain simulations. These nanoparticles were self-assembled using a one-pot reverse emulsion process, which resulted in bright and noniridescent supraballs. With the combination of only two ingredients, synthetic melanin and silica, we can generate a full spectrum of colors. These supraballs could be directly added to paints, plastics, and coatings and also used as ultraviolet-resistant inks or cosmetics.

2016 Fantasy Football Preview Top 10 Tight Ends

first_imgJason Witten – Dallas2015 statsReceptions –         75Yards –                   850TD –                        3What you need to know: Witten caught 77 passes last year with the vomit inducing QB trio of Matt Cassel, Brandon Weeden and Kellen Moore throwing to him most of the year. With Tony Romo out for at least the first half of the year, he’ll be catching passes from preseason all-world rookie quarterback Dak Prescott. Still, don’t count him out for 70+ catches.Zac Ertz – Philadelphia2015 statsReceptions –          72Yards –                    800TD –                         2What you need to know: Ertz put up nice PPR stats with Sam Bradford in Chip Kelly’s no huddle system last year. Typically, changing coaches and offensive philosophy is always a risky proposition, but Bradford is still the starter (at least to until he’s not), and the Eagles project to be terrible, which only means they’ll be passing from behind in the second half of games. Targets, targets, targets. There are worse situations.Coby Fleener – New Orleans2015 statsReceptions –         69Yards –                   795TD –                        4What you need to know: Fleener was serviceable in his last year in Indianapolis without Andrew Luck for the majority of the season. His slotting here is mostly based on the projection that he’ll be catching passes from Drew Brees, who has missed a go to tight end since the departure of Jimmy Graham to his Seattle purgatory.  Usually new team and new offense = bad news, but Fleener should thrive with plenty of targets in the Saint volume passing offense.Tyler Eifert – Cincinnati2015 statsReceptions –         52Yards –                   615TD –                        7What you need to know: Eifert led all tight ends with 13 TD’s last year and looked like a lock to be Top 5 tight end this season. A seemingly minor ankle injury in the Pro Bowl ended up requiring surgery and Eifert looks like he’ll miss the first month of the season. Also, the departure of offensive coordinator Hue Jackson raises more questions. Love the talent, just some bad vibes around the situation. Huge upside in a best case scenario. Who knows when he’ll be back. Worth a stash-and-hope for a late season surge. Jordan Reed – Washington2016 projectionsReceptions –          85Yards –                   1,100TD –                        10What you need to know: Reed had a breakout 2015 campaign, proving to be a nightmare matchup for opposing defenses and a lethal red zone threat. Strong finish to the year. Another year with Kirk Cousins in the pass Jay Gruden’s pass heavy offense will only help. Reed’s biggest question mark has always been durability, specifically concussions. If he’s healthy, he could catch 100 balls. If. He’s. Healthy.Delanie Walker – Tennessee2016 ProjectionsReceptions –          90Yards –                   1,000TD –                        7What you need to know: Walker established himself as rookie Marcus Mariota’s go-to target and led all tight ends with 94 catches in 2015. Mariota/Walker chemistry should continue to improve, but it has yet to be determined how the addition of Demarco Murray will impact Walker. Murray will help the Titans rushing attack which could lead to fewer targets and a slight down tick in stats for Walker. I hear soundbites from Ken Wisenhunt referring to how much they’re gonna run the ball and I’m not crazy about that. He’s still a legit #1.Greg Olsen – Carolina2016 ProjectionsReceptions –           81Yards –                    1,050TD –                         9What you need to know: Olsen is Cam Newton’s go-to, and that shouldn’t change. Look for Olsen to stay among the league leaders for tight ends in most major offensive categories. More of the same is great for fantasy owners. Not too much analysis needed here. Also, friend of The Herd..@gregolsen88 on his @Panthers teammate Cam Newton: He’s transcending the quarterback position. #TheHerd— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) June 30, 2016 What you need to know: If Gronk is healthy, he’s #1. He’s healthy. Last year, he led all tight ends in yards, yards per game, yards per catch, catches over 20 and 40 yards, and killer party cruises. Even though he’ll be catching passes from “not Tom Brady” for the first four games, Gronk should be targeted more than a drunk American swimmer in Rio. That actually never happened. When Brady returns from suspension, they might leave the league resembling a post-nuclear Chernobyl.The Gronk Party Cruise will be permanently docking. Sorry #Patriots fans #NFL #RobGronkowski— Chat Sports (@ChatSports) May 7, 2016 No position in fantasy football has increased in value over the last 5 years more than tight end. The days of the 50 catch, in-line blocker have been replaced by the era of high volume pass catching hybrids. In 2015, 7 tight ends caught over 70 passes, and four surpassed 1,000 yards.Make sure you target a productive tight end in your draft so you don’t get stuck with a platoon of hot, run blocking garbage where fantasy points go to die. Here are the Top 10 Fantasy Tight Ends for 2016:Rob Gronkowski – New England2016 projectionsReceptions –          83Yards –                   1,220TD –                        14center_img Travis Kelce – Kansas City2016 ProjectionsReceptions –          80Yards –                   1,050TD –                        6What you need to know: Kelce continued to establish himself as an elite, physically dominant tight end last year. Andy Reid’s short passing game is basically tight end porn. More continuity with efficient Alex Smith projects Kelce to have career highs and ascent into elite tight end status.Gary Barnidge – Cleveland2015 statsReceptions –         85Yards –                   990TD –                        7What you need to know: Arguably the first legitimate offensive threat for the Browns since pre-Y2K, Barnidge looks to build on an impressive 2015. In most cases, changing quarterbacks and head coaches can be a bad sign, but new Browns Head Coach Hue Jackson is a huge offensive upgrade. “Football Jim Thome” has shown good early chemistry with RGIII, who should be an improvement over the tandem of Josh McCown and Johnny Coachella.Preseason? Doesn’t matter.@Browns QB @RGIII is out here putting on a SHOW.?????? #ATLvsCLE— NFL (@NFL) August 19, 2016 Advertisementlast_img read more

Limited Availability of DigitalOcean Kubernetes announced

first_imgOn Monday, the Kubernetes team announced that DigitalOcean, which was available in Early Access, is now accessible as Limited Availability. DigitalOcean simplifies the container deployment process that accompanies plain Kubernetes and offers Kubernetes container hosting services. Incorporating DigitalOcean’s trademark simplicity and ease of use, they aim to reduce the headache involved in setting up, managing and securing Kubernetes clusters. DigitalOcean incidentally are also the people behind Hacktoberfest which runs all of October in partnership with GitHub to promote open source contribution. The Early Access availability was well received by users who commented on the simplicity of configuring and provisioning a cluster. They appreciated that deploying and running containerized services consumed hardly any time. Users also brought to light issues and feedback that was utilized to increase reliability and resolve a number of bugs, thus improving user experience in the limited availability of DigitalOcean Kubernetes. The team also notes that during early access, they had a limited set of free hardware resources for users to deploy to. This restricted the total number of users they could provide access to. In the Limited Availability phase, the team hopes to open up access to anyone who requests it. That being said, the Limited Availability will be a paid product. Why should users consider DigitalOcean Kubernetes? Each customer has their own Dedicated Managed Cluster. This provides security and isolation for their containerized applications with access to the full Kubernetes API. DigitalOcean products provide storage for any amount of data. Cloud Firewalls make it easy to manage network traffic in and out of the Kubernetes cluster. DigitalOcean provides cluster security scanning capabilities to alert users of flaws and vulnerabilities. In typical Kubernetes environments; metrics, logs, and events can be lost if nodes are spun down. To help developers learn from the performance of past environments, DigitalOcean stores this information separately from the node indefinitely. To know more about these features, head over to their official blog page. Some benefits for users of Limited Availability: Users will be able to provision Droplet workers in many more of regions with full support. To test out their containers in an orchestrated environment, they can start with a single node cluster using a $5/mo Droplet. As they scale their applications, users can add worker pools of various Droplet sizes, attach persistent storage using DigitalOcean Block Storage for $0.10/GB per month, and expose Kubernetes services with a public IP using $10/mo Load Balancers. This is a highly available service designed to protect against application or hardware failures while spreading traffic across available resources. Looks like users are really excited about this upgrade: Source: DigitalOcen Blog Users that have already signed up for Early Access, will receive an email shortly with details about how to get started. To know more about this news, head over to DigitalOcean’s Blog post.

Turkey 1 killed in attack on Kurdish party campaign vehicle

first_imgThe attack comes weeks after bomb explosions at two local HDP offices injured six people in southern Adana city and neighboring Mersin and days after officials said two supporters of a small Islamist party were killed in a fight with Kurdish party supporters in southeastern Turkey.The motive for the latest attack was not known but the party is frequently accused by the ruling AKP party and by nationalists of links to Kurdish rebels fighting for autonomy in southeastern Turkey.On Thursday, clashes broke out in the northeastern city of Erzurum between HDP supporters and people opposed to the party staging a rally there. The state-run Anadolu Agency said dozens of people were injured and a HDP election campaign car was set on fire.The rally went ahead and the HDP blamed the clashes on President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu who have been leading a fierce election campaign, often speaking out against the Kurdish party.“If the prime minister and president target us, if they call us traitors who are trying to divide the country, then some people see it as their duty to attack us,” HDP leader Selahattin Demirtas told supporters in Erzurum.The HDP, which has expanded its appeal beyond Turkey’s Kurdish regions and is attracting liberal and left-wing voters from the rest of Turkey, is playing a key role in the election. If the party reaches the threshold of 10 percent of total votes required to take seats in parliament, it could make it impossible for the ruling AKP to reach a supermajority in parliament. That would scuttle the AKP’s ambitions to introduce a new constitution to give executive powers to the president. 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Assailants fired on a campaign vehicle belonging to Turkey’s pro-Kurdish party and killed its driver, officials said Thursday, in the latest violence against politicians or political parties ahead of Sunday’s general election.The governor’s office for Bingol province said the 35-year-old driver was found shot dead near the hired minibus of the People’s Democratic Party, or HDP, late Wednesday. It said an investigation had been launched. Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Top Stories Meanwhile, the Anadolu Agency said an independent candidate reported missing four days ago was found alive on a highway in southern Gaziantep province. He had been kidnapped. His captors’ motive was not disclosed.In other election-related violence last month in Adana, an AKP candidate was stabbed while electioneering and an opposition party candidate was shot in the knee.Copyright © The Associated Press.

I just know the Arizona Cardinals have one of the best in Patrick Peterson. And there are about five or six teams that have a guy of that caliber, someone in the conversation of best in the league.Locking up Peterson to a five-year contract extension with $48 million guaranteed was a no-brainer for the Cardinals brass. And not just because Peterson is a true shutdown corner but because he is the leader of the defense. Yes, at the ripe old age of 24 Peterson is as respected as anyone. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories center_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling He brings it game in and game out. He wants to be the best but he also cares about winning as much as, if not more than, the money.Throughout the past year we have discussed Peterson and his contract situation, he has at times hinted about wanting to be paid via social media. And that’s not uncommon in this day and age of big money contracts. But what impressed me is the amount of times he talked about winning. He talked about how be hasn’t been to the playoffs since he arrived in the desert and how the organization hasn’t been there in five years. How that his goal, first and foremost, is winning and leading this Cardinals team to the postseason.He is a mentor to all players on this roster not just the Honey Badger. He leads by example, stays out of trouble and is willing to do whatever is asked of him. He is personable, likable and grounded. Money changes many players. Mainly because those players play for the money more so than the love of the game. I don’t see money changing Patrick Peterson. His love for the game and desire to be the best is greater.
