Featuring a length of 183 meters and a width of 32.2 meters, Maersk Callao will fly the flag of Singapore.Maersk Callao is the third ship in a series of nine identical MR tankers ordered by the company back in 2015. The order, worth USD 300 million, is part of Maersk Tankers’ fleet renewal strategy.Its sister vessels, Maersk Cancun and Maersk Capri, were delivered in January and April this year, respectively. Two more tankers from the batch are scheduled for delivery this year, and the remaining four in 2019, VesselsValue’s data shows.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Calgary father says parole decision for daughters killer outrageous

No Comments

first_imgCALGARY — A Calgary man has started an online petition with the hope of revoking day parole for a woman who was imprisoned for his little girl’s death.Ryan McGrath’s daughter, Ceira, was 18 months old when she was asphyxiated by the strap of a car seat while inside a closet for hours at an unlicensed day home in November 2015.Elmarie Simons, the home’s operator, pleaded guilty last April to criminal negligence causing death and was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison.The Parole Board of Canada has granted Simons day parole — a decision which McGrath says sets a frightening precedent in cases involving serious offenders.He plans to take the petition to the federal justice minister with the goal of bringing about changes in the parole system.So far, he’s gathered almost 5,000 names.“I think people are similarly outraged like we are. It’s good to see the support and I hope it keeps growing,” McGrath says.He says the family was not notified of Simons’s scheduled parole hearing in January and was shocked to learn there’s also the possibility of full parole by this summer.“The sentence was outrageous. The parole board even states that she (Simons) shows little insight or regard for her crime and hasn’t even accepted responsibility, yet she’s granted parole. The system’s broken and it needs change.”The parole board and Correctional Service of Canada do not automatically update victims or families of victims on the timing of parole hearings or their outcomes.Officials say some people prefer not to receive any further information about an offender, while those who would like updates must submit forms.McGrath says the requirements to receive updates on Simons’s parole eligibility may have been discussed following her sentencing, but if they were, the family missed it.During her sentencing hearing, court was told Simons put Ceira in a child seat that was too small, buckled the chest strap and left her in a dark closet for more than five hours.Simons left the home to run errands. Her visiting brother was at the house, but she didn’t tell him that Ceira was upstairs.Under terms of her day parole, Simons cannot provide care for any child under the age of 12 unless she is supervised by another adult who has been approved by her parole supervisor.She must also take a treatment plan and refrain from contact with the McGrath family.(CFFR, CTV Calgary, The Canadian Press)The Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_imgCondemnations followed, as did the resignation of Write editor Hal Niedzviecki. But his idea was championed by former National Post editor Ken Whyte, who tweeted he would “donate $500 to the founding of the appropriation prize if someone else wants to organize.” Advertisement Robin Parker began the project Monday May 15th, after a contentious article in Write magazine advocated for more cultural appropriation in Canadian literature and suggested there be an appropriation prize. Advertisement Parker’s proposed award is described as a way to “help support and nurture the work of indigenous youth.” Login/Register With: Advertisement TORONTO — A campaign to raise money for a prize recognizing emerging indigenous writers has blown well past its $10,000 goal. There are two months left in the fundraising campaign. As of Thursday morning, the Emerging Indigenous Voices award has raised over $45,000 from nearly 700 backers on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo. “The award is crowdfunded because every person, big or small, wealthy or modest in means, can make a difference. We are all the richer when there is space for all of our voices to join the conversation,” says Parker’s online pitch.

UN and partners open new front in war on sexual violence against

No Comments

25 September 2009The United Nations joined with other partners today to launch a new initiative in the fight against sexual violence against girls, a scourge which affects 150 million victims in a given year and contributes to the spread of HIV and AIDS. The programme seeks to provide funding to expand surveillance of sexual violence against girls in developing and emerging countries, develop a technical package of interventions for implementation at a country level to reduce the incidence of such abuse, and launch a major media campaign to motivate social and behavioural change.“These three intervention strategies are pillars of what is expected to emerge as a global movement to address this devastating human injustice and public health problem,” the partners said in a joint news release.The initiative brings together five UN agencies – the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the World Health Organization (WHO) – with the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and private sector supporters via the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI).“Sexual violence against girls increases their vulnerability to HIV infection and must be stopped,” UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé said. “AIDS responses must include initiatives to stop sexual violence as an integral part of HIV prevention and treatment programmes.”Research demonstrates that such violence is a direct and an indirect driver of the HIV and AIDS epidemics, with the risk of infection increasing following forced sex, especially among children. Gender inequity and partner violence are associated with a substantial part of new HIV infections in Africa, and girls who have experienced sexual coercion are less likely to use condoms and more likely to experience sexually transmitted diseases. “Sexual violence is a major priority that must be tackled by all, through many interventions,” UNFPA Executive Director Thoraya Ahmed Obaid said. “We hope our partnership in this initiative will help reduce such violence through the concrete actions that it proposes.”UNICEF Executive Director Ann M. Veneman called the scourge “a moral and ethical outrage and an assault on the world’s conscience… Sexual abuse can lead to lost childhoods, abandoned education, physical and emotional problems, the spread of HIV, and an often irrevocable loss of dignity and self-esteem,” she said.According to WHO, in 2002 some 150 million girls experienced some form of sexual violence with physical contact. read more

Population rises threaten development in poor nations UN official warns

No Comments

Anwarul K. Chowdhury, Under-Secretary-General and High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States, told a meeting yesterday in Tokyo on cooperation between developing nations that rapidly increasing populations are shrinking the area of available cropland per person to the stage “where countries can no longer produce enough to feed themselves.”The combined population of the 50 countries classified as the least developed in the world is forecast to jump to 1.8 billion in 2050 from 658 million in 2000, he told the High Level Policy-Makers Symposium on South to South Collaboration.Mr. Chowdhury said many of the world’s poorest countries are particularly at risk because they depend on agricultural industries, which require large amounts of fertile land to succeed, for much of their national income.These nations are also so impoverished that they struggle to absorb rapid increases in population without harming their citizens’ quality of life.Mr. Chowdhury said world leaders need to place population and environment at the centre of their sustainable development policies and programmes.He added that “a world that spends almost a trillion dollars a year on the military” can afford to do much more to fund programmes that can sustain economic and human development in poor countries.In a separate speech to the symposium’s session examining the progress made since the 1994 UN International Conference on Population and Development was held in Cairo, Mr. Chowdhury said many affluent nations have failed to meet the commitments they made 10 years ago.But he said developing countries have still achieved a lot of progress since Cairo, especially those States that have given population issues and the empowerment of women high priority in determining their economic and social policy. read more

Africas concerns must figure high in new development agenda African leaders tell

No Comments

President Ikililou Dhoinine of Comoros addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Kim Haughton Comoros is also a member of the Small Island Developing States, and Mr. Dhoinine highlighted the progress made by his country and others in the group in achieving some of the MDGs in increasing the participation of women in political and economic life, access to education for children, and in the struggle against infant mortality, malaria and HIV/AIDS.“Still, much remains to be done, notably in food security, access to health care for all, and in countering environmental degradation,” he said.In his address, Ali Ahmed Karti, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Sudan said that his country is on the “threshold of a new phase” that would leave out no party faction or group after the launch by President Omal Al-Bashir of a national dialogue to call all Sundanese parties “to sit at the same table” and address key areas of agreed concern. That appeal had received an unprecedented response in Sudan and throughout the wider international community. Foreign Minister Harry Kalaba of Zambia addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Rick Bajornas On other challenges, he said that in the past few months the international community has witnessed the growing desperation of the extremist terrorist organizations, notably through the abduction of innocent school girls in Borno State, Nigeria and the wider reign of terror which includes bombing civilian trading points across this important African nation.In addition, Zambia is also concerned about the insecurity currently being experienced as a result of the instability in Ukraine. “We have followed the counter accusations which point to the deep seated divisions and suspicions of a bygone era. Sadly, the human loss has been heavy, as the ordinary Ukrainian is caught in the middle of a crisis that is strongly influenced by foreign factors,” said Mr. Kalaba, adding: “These and other global security concerns linger in the face of a United Nations which is becoming ever more challenged in coordinating any robust and convincing global response.” Alpha Condé, President of the Republic of Guinea, addresses the general debate of the sixty-ninth session of the General Assembly. UN Photo/Amanda Voisard“If Africa fares well, then the rest of the world will feel better,” he said. “For this new Africa, more ambitious and more promising, aware of its rich economic and human potential, is from now on ready to assume its responsibilities.” He thanked the United Nations, the United States, Doctors without Borders and other partners for their help in combating the Ebola epidemic which has cut Guinea’s projected growth by 2.5 per cent.“The Ebola epidemic reminds us of the incontrovertible need for a global approach to contain and conquer this terrible disease,” he said. Republic of Congo President Denis Sassou-N’Guesso noted that African leaders have already adopted a common position for the Post-2015 Agenda to confront the challenges facing the continent. Denis Sassou Nguesso, President of the Republic of the Congo, addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Amanda Voisard“We appeal for the solidarity and engagement of all Member States to place this common position at the heart of our negotiations for the adoption the Post-2015 Agenda,” he said.He declared his trust in the UN as the sole instrument that the world has in confronting the numerous crises facing it, from terrorism and epidemics to climate change to inequality both between and within States.President Ikililou Dhoinine of Comoros called for strengthening strategic partnerships, the establishment of an international fair trade system and the promotion of national and foreign direct investments as part of the Post-2015 Agenda. Foreign Minister Ali Ahmed Karti of Sudan addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Rick Bajornas He affirmed the intent of the State to forge ahead with the dialogue in the hopes of securing the future of the country. More broadly, Sudan had continued to play an effective role in its region. When conflict had broken out in South Sudan, his country had adhered to the principle of non-interference. It was however participating with the IGAD mediation to end the crisis. Among other efforts, Sudan was working with its neighbours to bolster border security to curb smuggling of small arms and light weapons. Indeed, many of its efforts could be seen as a model of regional security efforts. As for development, he said 14 years ago, the international community had adopted the Millennium Declaration, thus setting “2015 as the dividing line between poverty and welfare.” Yet, with just a few months to go, achievements were well short of aspirations. Indeed, development partners who formulated the Declaration continually adopted policies that ran counter to the Millennium Declaration and human rights. Mr. Karti said that such measures as sanction undermined the objectives of the Declaration. Also taking the floor, Harry Kalaba, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Zambia expressed “deep concern” at the global health emergency that has resulted from the Ebola outbreak in parts of Africa. “This burden is not only for the people of Liberia, Sierra Leone, or Guinea. Zambia views this epidemic as a common challenge to humanity,” he said, expressing his Government’s readiness to support all efforts required to defeat the disease and bring back normalcy in the daily economic and social lives of the affected countries. “It is vital to ensure that the concerns articulated in the African Common Position are fully integrated in the Post-2015 Development Agenda,” President Hifikepunye Pohamba of Namibia told leaders from 193 countries on the third day of the Assembly’s 69th annual General Debate, referring to the major issue of this year’s session, which is to set ambitious sustainable goals for decades to come. He noted his own country’s achievements in attaining the UN anti-poverty Millennium Goals (MDGs) adopted in 2000 that are due for completion at the end of next year, citing the reduction of extreme poverty by more than half, improved health care, and 100 per cent primary school enrolment Mr. Pohamba said the multiple crises facing the world, from the Ebola epidemic in West Africa to armed conflict and terrorism to sustainable development can be resolved if States adhere to UN principles. “These challenges are not insurmountable,” he said. “They demand steadfastness and unity in confronting and overcoming them. They demand that we resolutely reaffirm our faith and move forward guided by the enduring values and principles of the UN Charter and all that it stands for. These values should guide our discussions during this session.” Noting that developing countries, particularly African and island States, continue to bear the brunt of the adverse effects of climate change, including floods, droughts and soil erosion, he appealed for meaningful global agreement in Paris in December 2015 following the summit Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon hosted on the issue at UN Headquarters in New York earlier this week. Mr. Pohamba’s concerns on the development were echoed by Côte d’Ivoire President Alassane Ouattara, whose country the UN aided in restoring stability and democracy following civil war and division. “The post-2015 development agenda must pay special attention to the priorities of developing countries, notably those of Africa,” he told the Assembly. Alassane Ouattara, President of Côte d’Ivoire, addresses the general debate of the sixty-ninth session of the General Assembly. UN Photo/Amanda Voisard“For this reason, intergovernmental negotiations must be inclusive, balanced and achieve precise and measurable goals to facilitate their adoption by States and regions … We must at last give a decent life to the most vulnerable; we must also give our planet respite and a chance to exist for the centuries to come.” Mr. Ouattara warned that Africa’s development remains hostage to its security environment, including an “unprecedented explosion of terrorism” from the Horn of Africa to the Sahel, maritime piracy, various drug and other trafficking criminals, and most recently the Ebola epidemic. “The present international mobilization against terrorism and extremism is healthy, but it would gain by being extended to Africa… Africa must not be the forgotten continent in the struggle against terrorism,” he said. “In the Sahel and against Boko Haram, the great powers and the United Nations must go further in their support for the continent and show the same determination that the French did against terrorists in Mali.” For Guinean President Alpha Condé, Africa’s need for its interests to be addressed in the sustainable development agenda were also a prime concern, even though the Ebola epidemic currently sweeping his country and neighbours, Liberia and Sierra Leone, is of more immediate urgency. read more

Rhosonics unveils new Slurry Density Meter

No Comments

first_imgRhosonics this week announced the product launch of the previously previewed SDM Slurry Density Meter. The SDM is an instrument which is specifically designed to measure the density of abrasive slurries. One of the most unique features of the SDM is that the density meter uses ultrasonic technology to measure the density in-line and with zero intrusion. The SDM is the next generation non-nuclear density meter and is now available for purchase.The predecessor of the SDM, the model 9690, was the first density meter with ultrasonic technology that has shown successful measurements in abrasive slurries. This instrument is now used at many mineral processing plants and on dredging ships around the world. The Model 9690 density meter became one the most successful product lines of Rhosonics over the last years. Dirk Aalten, Sales Manager of Rhosonics, said: “We think that the positive sales figures of our Model 9690 density meter are mainly caused by the increasing demand for environmental friendly solutions in the industry. Most of our customers found us by searching for alternatives to nuclear density measurement.” Rhosonics has learned a lot from field experiences with the Model 9690 density meter. The field information is used by Rhosonics to make major improvements which are incorporated into the new density meter.The first improvement is the modular and robust design of the SDM. “The sensor is detachable and can therefore be separated from the housing. Furthermore, Rhosonics found a new sensor material, which is more effective in applications where the density meter is used. The new sensor technology has a stronger and more intense ultrasonic signal which results in a higher stability of the density meter. Also, because of the new sensor, the range of possible applications has been extended.”Another interesting feature of the SDM is the detection of wear. Rhosonics found out that pipeline wear could have a negative effect on the performances of the instrument. The wear could for example result in drifted measurement results. Therefore Rhosonics invented the AWD (Auto Wear Detection) feature. This never-seen-before feature in the world of instrumentation prevents drift and is incorporated into the new SDM Slurry Density Meter.Willem de Jong, CEO of Rhosonics, says about the development of the SDM Slurry Density Meter: “At Rhosonics, we saw an increasing demand for our model 9690 density meter. This growth clearly came from industries where abrasive slurries need to be measured. In fact, because of the noticed growth, we decided to focus our research and development chiefly on getting the right solution for companies in the mining and dredging sector. These industries usually want to measure density of abrasive slurries, the kind of situations where our next generation non-nuclear density meter is at its best”.last_img read more

FG TD slams Technical Group for facilitating debate on Mings Cannabis Bill

No Comments

first_imgA FINE GAEL TD has strongly criticised members of the Dáil Technical Group for facilitating a debate on the Cannabis Regulation Bill published by the independent TD Luke Ming Flanagan this week.Derek Keating has said that the private members’ business is a “waste of time” and a “cynical attempt” by some of the group’s members to facilitate Flanagan “in his mission to legalise cannabis and, as a consequence, to liberalise more damaging and life threatening substances such as heroin, crack cocaine and amphetamines”.But independent TDs in the group, who Keating criticised, pointed out that they are only facilitating the debate and not necessarily supporting the legislation.Flanagan’s bill, if passed, would legalise cannabis growing and use as well as regulate the industry in Ireland but it is almost certainly going to be rejected by government when it comes before the Dáil next month.Keating, a TD for Dublin Mid West, said his constituency has been “blighted by drug barons” and cited research showing cannabis use among children as young as 10. “Research that was carried out by the National University of Ireland showed that up to 8 per cent of children aged 10 years of age reported having used cannabis in the previous 12 months,” he said. “This is a shocking statistic and one that is eroding our society.” He said the legalising of cannabis “is simply unacceptable” and said the Technical Group would be better suited to proposing business that has “been proposed by experts and professionals in the field of addiction”.In response to queries, three members of the Technical Group hit back at Keating with one of them, Waterford TD John Halligan, saying the Fine Gael deputy is “missing the point”.He said: “Derek should know, unless he doesn’t know the runnings of the Dáil, that we can’t stop him [Ming] from doing that.“The Technical Group cannot tell you what private members’ business you can put in. If Derek wanted to put in a bill to stop people over 25 from driving a car he would be allowed to do that.”Kildare North TD Catherine Murphy said: “He [Keating] clearly does not want to understand what a Technical Group is. It is not, as he well knows, a common policy platform,She said that she has not yet studied Flanagan’s bill but takes the view “that we should not fear a mature debate”, a view echoed by Halligan.Fellow independent deputy, Finian McGrath, said that Keating should “get his facts right” saying the group is just facilitating debate.Read: 6 things we learned from Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan’s Cannabis Regulation BillCannabis legalisation: Where do the parties stand?last_img read more

Texas Church Shooting Victims Honored Funeral Held

No Comments

first_imgTwitter via @suntimes Texas church shooting victims honored, funeral heldTwo silver hearses carrying the bodies of a couple killed in last weekend’s shooting at a Texas church were followed by a long procession of vehicles Saturday that avoided passing the small church where more than two dozen people died.Mourners instead drove around the tiny community of Sutherland Springs before reaching a cemetery on the edge of town, where dozens more vehicles waited along a rural road for the private burial of Therese and Richard Rodriguez. Sheriff’s SUVs shielded mourners at the cemetery’s three entrances.The services for the recently retired couple followed a ceremony earlier in the day where about 100 people gathered to commemorate Veterans Day and to honor the shooting victims, nearly half of whom had ties to the Air Force.“Maybe this will start the healing process that will get Sutherland Springs and Wilson County to put this horrific tragedy behind us and look to the future,” county Judge Richard Jackson, his voice breaking, told the crowd, which included first responders and law enforcement officers.Jackson, the county’s top administrator, thanked the first responders and others who rushed to First Baptist Church in the aftermath of Sunday’s shooting. What they saw there will affect them the rest of their lives, Jackson said during the ceremony outside the town’s community center, where a wreath was placed near flags to remember those killed.The gunman killed 25 people — authorities put the number at 26 because one was pregnant — and wounded about 20 others. The gunman died of what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound after being shot and chased by two men who heard gunfire from the church.Investigators have said the shooting appeared to stem from a domestic dispute involving the attacker, Devin Patrick Kelley, and his mother-in-law, who sometimes attended services at the church but wasn’t there the day of the shooting.Kelley had a history of violence. He was given a bad conduct discharge from the Air Force after pleading guilty to assaulting his first wife and stepson. The ex-wife, Tessa Brennaman, told “Inside Edition” that Kelley once put a gun to her head because she’d received a speeding ticket and threatened to kill her and her family. A former Air Force colleague told The New York Times that Kelley, after leaving the military, contacted her about his obsession with Dylann Roof, who killed nine people at a church in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2015.Sutherland Springs is about 30 miles (48 kilometers) southeast of San Antonio and not far from several military posts, including Lackland Air Force Base. The Air Force’s chief of staff, Gen. David Goldfein, said 12 of those killed were either members of the Air Force or had family ties to it.Among them were Scott and Karen Marshall, both 56, who had decided to retire in nearby La Vernia after meeting when they were in the service together more than 30 years ago. On Thursday, a military funeral was held for them at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph.Retired Chief Warrant Officer Mike Gonzales, who led Saturday’s Veterans Day ceremony, moved to Sutherland Springs with his wife to raise their children in 2009. He said many veterans choose to live in the San Antonio area because of its deep military ties, and families tend to migrate to the city’s surrounding rural areas.“We come here to enjoy life, to get quiet and to raise our children,” he said. “We’ve been to war zones and seen that tragedy firsthand. Never did we think that tragedy would strike here.”U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar told the gathering to lean on one another for support. The Texas congressman said $10 million in federal assistance has been secured to help cover overtime costs for law enforcement agencies involved in the investigation.Some in the crowd Saturday wore shirts that said “Sutherland Springs Strong” and included an outline of Texas with a heart of the town’s location. The shirts were donated by Brenda Bierd, who lives on the Gulf Coast and whose home was damaged by Hurricane Harvey in late August.“I hadn’t even heard of Sutherland Springs before the shooting, but this is what you do,” she said. “I just had this feeling I needed to be here.”A steady stream of people also visited a makeshift memorial of crosses adorned with flowers, photographs, red hearts and white, purple and pink balloons.Among the visitors was Jackie Lee, who said she asked her friends on Facebook if anyone would come with her from San Antonio this weekend. She said about two dozen people quickly said they would.“It was on my heart since it happened,” she said. “I needed to come to show the community some support, to show these people some support.” Sharelast_img read more

Why is there a monkey in a fez hiding in No Mans

No Comments

first_imgNo Man’s Sky was released for PC last Friday. As usually tends to happen with PC games, users have begun digging through the game’s code to see what sort of things are hidden underneath. This game features a great deal of surprises that aren’t in the actual game, including a model for what the player character looks like… and a monkey with a fez?Hello Games may have become a household name (at least in gamer homes) because of No Man’s Sky, but this isn’t the developer’s first game. Before the much hyped space game, the studio released a platforming title called Joe Danger. One of the characters in the game just so happens to be — you guessed it — a monkey with a fez. Why this primate is hidden within No Man’s Sky‘s code is unknown, but it is a fun homage to their previous title.As mentioned before, users have also found what appears to be the model for the main character. No Man’s Sky is entirely in first person so you never get to see what you look like. Even on the off-chance that players run into one another, they are still unable to see themselves. You basically play as an invisible protagonist, but it does appear that a model for the character was planned to be in the game at one point.A NeoGAF thread has listed several other buried items in the game’s PC code. These include folders labelled PS3, Xbox 360, and Orbis (the codename for the PS4). There is even a folder called “Poop.” This is the name for the in-game mechanic where creatures you’ve fed reward you with items.No Man’s Sky has been out for nearly a week and is going to get a number of updates in the future. Who knows, perhaps these updates will allow players to see themselves, or better yet, have the Joe Danger monkey become a hidden Easter egg on some distant world. It’s also possible that none of this stuff will ever officially see the light of day, but it’s still fun to think of the possibilities. <> 1/17″Don’t Go Here” is the perfect name for a planet full of deadly alien beasts.

Shipwreck Discovered – Oldest Seafaring Vessel Ever Found in Dutch Waters

No Comments

first_imgOn the bottom of the North Sea, salvage teams searching for shipping containers that fell off a merchant ship in a recent storm found a shipwreck of enormous historical value. They located a wreck from 1540 that may hold clues to a mystery researchers have been trying to solve for many years. “A lot of people think of the Dutch as a maritime nation, and this ship tells us something about how we became that nation,” said maritime and underwater archaeologist Martijn Manders. The ship was filled with a cargo of copper plates and some of them were displayed on April 3, 2019, the same day that the find was revealed.The wreck is being described as “the missing link” in shipping constructionIt was owned by the Fugger family, one of Europe’s richest banking families. The BBC reported that the wreck is being described as “the missing link” in shipping construction.AdChoices广告inRead invented by Teads“It’s the way the ship was built that’s very interesting because you have to think 100 years later the Netherlands was in the middle of its Golden Age — and this ship is from a transition period,” Manders told the BBC.Coat of Arms of the ‘Fugger of the Deer’Part of the reason why researchers have been able to identify this ship as one belonging to this transitional period is because of the way the timber was arranged.Although it is still on the seabed, divers intend to revisit the ship during the summer. It is considered to be the oldest seafaring ship ever found in Dutch waters.Great video to watch: Top 10 Famous Shipwrecks Throughout HistoryManders and his colleagues had been investigating a ship dating back to the 1590s for evidence of this technological transition to the Dutch Golden Age, but this new wreck puts the transition period at least 50 years earlier.Originally, the salvage teams were on the trail of the giant container ship MSC Zoe. It lost over 270 containers in January as it sailed from Portugal to Bremerhaven in Germany. Some containers and cargo washed up on German and Dutch beaches, but authorities were also searching the ocean for the missing freight.Ultra large container ship MSC Zoe navigates partly unloaded through river Scheldt towards AntwerpWhile sonar-scanning for the missing cargo, an unidentified object was spotted a few miles north of Terschelling, an island in the Wadden Sea. An underwater search located timber beams and copper plates, leading to an archaeological investigation.The archaeologists said that the timbers came from a smooth-hulled ship was 98 feet long and that the copper plates were its cargo. The Fugger family, a German mercantile dynasty, held a monopoly on copper production in the 16th century.Fugger EhrenbuchDescribing the discovery as a “lucky accident,” Education, Culture and Science Minister Ingrid van Engelshoven said to the media: “I am very curious about what information will be revealed – that is also the beauty of archaeology: it stimulates your curiosity and imagination. I think this find is an enrichment of Dutch heritage.”“It was filled with copper plates, which have the stamp of the Fugger family — one of the richest families in the world,” said Manders in a BBC interview. He traced the cargo’s route from the family’s copper mines in modern-day Slovakia and up the River Vistula to the Polish port of Gdansk. Its destination was the major port of Antwerp, in Belgium.10 Ducats (1621) minted as circulating currency by the Fugger Family“They were financing emperors and kings so they were enormously rich. They pushed away the Hanseatic traders so they hired Dutch ships to avoid working with them.”A copper expert from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam has identified the chemical substance in the cargo as identical to the first copper coins used in the Netherlands.Read another story from us: Viking Ship Discovered in Norway“Copper coins were at the time being developed as a lower-cost alternative to gold and silver, and it now appears that copper from the mines in Slovakia was being used as currency in the Netherlands,” according to the BBC.Nancy Bilyeau, a former staff editor at Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and InStyle, has written a trilogy of historical thrillers set in the Tudor era for Touchstone Books.

Mauricio Macri overcame privilege to become Argentina president

No Comments

first_imgBUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Argentina’s new President Mauricio Macri was dismissed by rivals as a spoiled elitist, but tapped frustration with the sinking economy to put an end to 12 years of left-wing rule.The business-friendly conservative was sworn in Thursday, a sea change for Argentina after three terms under left-wing power couple Néstor and Cristina Kirchner.With a dashing smile under his piercing blue eyes, the graying 56-year-old channeled discontent among Argentines fed up with the Kirchners’ protectionist policies and confrontational brand of politics.He managed to shake off his image as a fat cat — potentially fatal in Argentina, a country with a loaded history of class conflict — to build a broad coalition of supporters around his mantra of change.Macri drew leaders of various political stripes to his cause, including from the Kirchners’ “Peronist” movement and social democrats as well as right-wingers.Fresh off a come-from-behind win in the Nov. 22 runoff election, he has promised to ease restrictions on imports and end the official exchange rate, which will likely lead to a sharp devaluation of the Argentine peso but should help curb double-digit inflation.He rose to fame as the president of Argentina’s most popular football club, Boca Juniors.“I wanted to be Boca’s number nine” striker, he once said.Instead, he led in the boardroom during the team’s most successful period, seeing it win 17 titles.That powerful position catapulted him into politics. He founded his Republican Proposal alliance, known as PRO, in 2005.Elected mayor of Buenos Aires in 2007, Macri led a movement called “Let’s Change” vowing to roll back policies that Kirchner says help the working class but business leaders say wrecked economic growth. Argentina President Mauricio Macri waves during his inauguration ceremony at the Congress in Buenos Aires, on December 10, 2015. Eitan Abramovich/AFPLife of privilege, dramaMacri was born in Tandil, a city in an eastern agricultural region, and was educated at the elite Cardinal Newman College in Buenos Aires.The son of a rich businessman, he previously managed the family firm.He is married to model and fashion entrepreneur Juliana Awada, with whom he has a 3-year-old daughter. He has two other children from a previous marriage.In the October first-round vote, Macri surprised pollsters by finishing close behind Daniel Scioli, Kirchner’s chosen successor. That enabled him to seize the momentum as the vote headed to a runoff.Macri crisscrossed the country’s poorest provinces, hugging children and grandmothers and promising not to take away anyone’s social benefits but give them the chance to work.In his inaugural address, he promised to fight “untiringly for those who need it most,” a nod to those campaign pledges.His life has been marked by dramas and scandals.In 1991, he was kidnapped and freed two weeks later after his family paid a $6 million ransom.He was cleared of smuggling charges in the 1990s and overcame accusations of links to groups of Boca football hooligans.In a more recent case, he faced accusations that he spied on opponents.His style has been compared to that of Republican politicians in the United States.On the campaign trail, he combated his stuffy image with colorful rallies, dancing the Argentine “cumbia” and imitating the singer Freddie Mercury.He has vowed to liberalize the economy, but the contest against Scioli also forced him to face up to voters’ social demands. Scioli branded Macri a “stuck-up” elitist.“In the past, [Macri] was just right-wing and proud of it,” sociologist Federico González told AFP. “Now he is like Buddha. He went out of his palace and discovered misery and sickness.” Facebook Comments Related posts:US-trained bankers tapped for new Argentine Cabinet Argentina opposition attacks Macri over Panama Papers Argentina’s Macri spars with Venezuela in first trip abroad US signs trade deal with Argentina during Obama triplast_img read more

system "if a producer doesn’t know which direction they need to head immediately"The company’s "NaturaStep" setup has been on the market for several years It includes floor space but then three tiers at about 15 feet 3 feet and 65 feet Bill Snow a Big Dutchman aviary systems specialist for cage-free systems said traditional systems afford hens 1 to 12 square feet per bird to live in but the cage-free system is "completely open" to allow unfettered movement "lengthwise widthwise also vertical"Know the jumpsThe main egg-laying level is called a "nest" but includes a nubbed surface behind a series of flaps It is a somewhat darker environment that gives the bird a feeling of safety he said In it a newly-laid egg gently rolls to the back of the nest and is collected to the front of the house This reduces the incidents of "checks and cracks" and makes for a cleaner egg for the consumer"We want the bird to be able to lay her egg in the nest and nowhere else — the top level the lower level or on the floor" Snow said "They have the freedom to do anything where in a cage they are confined to a 2-by-2 foot area and that’s where they’re at the whole time The egg always gets to the egg (moving) belt" By training pullets the laying hens have less competition for space in the laying nest"The less competition you can have for a particular bird the more success she’s able to have" Snow saidBirds will naturally seek the highest level for roosting at night based on a safety instinct The Big Dutchman system provides either feed or water in a "drinker" on that level — but not both "If you provide both feed and water on the highest level you have more potential for mislaid eggs We want them to move up there and come back down but not lay eggs" he saidStart in the gymTo make the new laying systems work manufacturers also offer a "rearing system" which teaches pullets to jump"When they come over to the layer side the birds can move up and down They know the jumps to ascend and descend" Snow saidTom Randall national sales manager for Vencomatic North America based in Barry’s Bay Ontario said it’s essential to teach poults just as it is to teach children to move"Let’s think of this as ‘Jumpstart University’" for pullets" Randall said smiling "The schooling part of it starts Day One whereby we teach the chick early on to jump and perch at different levels so they know instinctively what they have to know as a layer"Chicks initially have a short jump to get to water As they grow the operator changes the levels by remote control as to allow the water to move up with their increased capabilities Chickens have different vision and depth-perception than humans Randall said"They have different perception of distance By default we’re teaching the angles of jumps how to perch and be secure both going up and — really important — how to come down comfortably without hurting themselves"All of the waterers raise up gradually allowing the birds to learn to jump and perch in comfort and safety As with human exercise the activity builds up the muscle and the bone"Without preparing the pullet they have no idea how to move through these systems in safety" Randall said Another aim is to allow the poult to learn to sleep "in-system"The market for the new equipment requires financial agility Walcott said Egg producers who were able to avoid contracting the avian influenza outbreaks that occurred in 2015 were also able to benefit from increased egg prices during that period Since the avian influenza crisis flock size has rebounded to a level that has over-supplied the egg demand so prices have declined"The (equipment) customer — right now one of their challenges is they know we have all of these commitments to go cage-free throughout the US by the grocers by the companies that use eggs as an (ingredient)" Walcott said "All of these (food) companies have committed to cage-free however they’re not ready at this time to pay the difference of what
