The presiding deities of the Commonwealth Games Village seem to believe in an axiom that used to be often repeated in old Hindi films: whisky is risky.It shows in the choice of alcoholic beverages – just beer and wine – that is as uninspiring as the dcor of the only bar that serves the 6,600 residents of the Village from one inconspicuous corner of the International Zone.The choice hasn’t gone down well with delegates and coaches, who can afford to imbibe, unlike the athletes they lead. A South African delegate echoed the prevailing sentiment when he said on the condition of anonymity, ” I have been to various countries and all of them run full bars.Athletes are responsible enough to stay away from alcohol before their events and the officials must have the freedom to drink what they like.Delegates recalled with nostalgia the well-stocked bars operating at different venues at the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games and the 2008 Beijing Olympics. One of them said the Games Village in Beijing had a liquor store in addition to a wellprovisioned bar.Why, they wondered, were they being denied this little pleasure at the Games Village in Delhi? The bar offerings are limited to Sula and Nine Hills wines (Rs 900 per bottle and Rs 200 per glass) to pints of Kingfisher (Rs 100) and Corona (Rs 200). No self- respecting bar can get away with this limited menu.Village mayor Dalbir Singh is unfazed by such criticism. “No one has come up to me and said he wanted to have ‘hard alcohol’,” Singh said, adding in his defence: “Most countries serve beef at such events but it’s not on our menu. It’s just a country thing.”advertisementHe went on to say that “foreigners don’t like drinking whisky” – a view not shared by the delegates this correspondent spoke to. “The officials who wish to drink can go to the various restaurants in the city,” Singh suggested. But the delegates aren’t amused.
Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt believes his German doctor Hans-Wilhelm Mueller-Wohlfahrt will fix the retiring world record holder’s back problems in time for the August world championships in London.Bolt will see his long-time physician after suffering a stiff back in the build-up to his 100 metres run at the Ostrava Golden Spike meeting on Wednesday, a race he won in a modest 10.06 seconds.”I am going to see my doctor now so I know he will fix every problem,” Bolt told reporters. “Then all I need to do is train hard and get myself into some shape.”Bolt also went to Mueller-Wohlfahrt with a hamstring injury before winning three gold medals at the Rio Olympics last year.The Jamaican is scheduled to feature in only one more event at next month’s Diamond League meeting in Monaco ahead of the championships but is not worried about of lack of activity.”I tell you guys year after year, one run doesn’t really matter to me — it always comes down to the championship,” he added. “For me it is all about getting myself into great shape and that is the focus for me right now.”Bolt, who has eight Olympic golds and 13 world championship medals, is scheduled to retire after the world championships.
ATHENS — Mauricio Carrasco scored in extra time as Olympiakos lost 2-1 to Asteras in the Greek league March 26, a week after a 3-0 defeat to Manchester United that knocked it out of the Champions League.Asteras went ahead in the 22nd minute when Pablo De Blasis punished a defensive error, before 18-year-old substitute Nikos Vergos headed in a first-touch equalizer on the hour.De Blasis set up the winner, running through defenders to reach the ball for the tap in.Olympiakos has already secured the title and has 80 points from 31 matches. Second-place Atromitos slipped to a 2-0 loss to OFI, staying on 62 points and now tied with Panathinaikos which beat Kalloni 3-0.TweetPinShare0 Shares
IOWA CITY, IA – NOVEMBER 12: A general view of Iowa Hawkeyes Kinnick Stadium against Michigan State Spartans November 12, 2011 in Iowa City, Iowa. (Photo by Reese Strickland/Getty Images)Iowa’s quarterback commit for the 2020 class, Deuce Hogan out of Texas, is certainly not lacking in any confidence.Hogan, the No. 18 pro-style quarterback in the country per 247Sports’ Composite Rankings, has been committed to Iowa since last June.The quarterback recruit can’t wait to get on campus – and start playing Ohio State.Hogan, a three-star commit, had a bold message for the Buckeyes’ coaching staff while speaking to a recruiting reporter.“I’m going to make the defensive coordinator at Ohio State pull his hair out,” he said.Just spoke with Iowa QB commit @_DeuceHogan__ I asked him what Iowa fans can expect from him and he said “First of all, just a winner”. He then went on to say “I’m going to make the defensive coordinator at Ohio State pull his hair out”. Story coming later.— Tyler Devine (@devine_tyler) May 17, 2019Ohio State has certainly had problems with Iowa before, most recently in 2017, when the Buckeyes were dominated, 55-24, by the Hawkeyes in a shocking defeat.We’re a couple of years away from an Ohio State-Iowa showdown that features Hogan, but it’ll apparently be a game to watch.
Just days after NBC “The Brave” stars Mike Vogel, Tate Ellington, Demetrius Grosse, Natacha Karam, Noah Mills, Sofia Pernas and Hadi Tabbal visited Kirtland Air Force Base and wrapped up their first-ever USO tour, the cast members are urging fans to join them and the USO in becoming a Force Behind the Forces by sending a message of support to our nation’s service men and women today at USO.org/Messages.Cast of NBC’s The Brave visit with service members and their families during USO tour to Kirtland Air Force BaseCredit/Copyright: Fred Greaves“I come from a military family… Throughout my adult life, I’ve been very involved. I worked with the VA for a year, started a charity to help veterans that come back from Iraq and Afghanistan with PTSD, all kinds of different stuff,” said Mike Vogel. “For me, this is kind of a dream job, to be able to continue to hopefully honor and tell the story of sacrifice and service that you all live on a daily basis.” ”A lot of what I believed has only been reinforced,” added Natacha Karam. “The amount of sacrifice it takes, the commitment, dedication to the corps. The thing that opened my eyes was that I didn’t realize that groups like this existed. The stories that don’t make the news, the faces that don’t get to be seen as heroes on TV, I think it’s amazing that we get to shed light on this.”Force Behind the Forces is the USO’s brand awareness campaign, that encourages the American public to demonstrate their appreciation for and support of those who selflessly serve our nation.Earlier this month, the cast members did just that… having spent the day learning about military operations, extending their heartfelt gratitude and even treating airmen to an advance USO screening of their new drama. The morale boosting visit is just one example of how the USO strengthens service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country throughout their service to the nation.The USO tour kicked off with a visit to the 351st Battlefield Airman Training Squadron – Kirtland Air Force Bases’ new squadron which houses the US Air Force Pararescue and Combat Rescue Officer School that aid airmen for the battlefield – and a private USO meet & greet. A short time later, the cast joined airmen and their families for an advance screening of NBC’s “The Brave” then opened the floor to a USO Q&A, where each star expressed their heartfelt appreciation to America’s armed forces and their families and took time out to personally greet them.
(Undated family photo of Kinew James. APTN/Flile)Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsA women inmate advocacy group is going to Saskatchewan court in hopes of overturning a provincial coroner’s decision rejection their participating in an upcoming inquest into the in-custody death of an Indigenous woman.Kim Pate, executive director of the Canadian Association of Elizabeth Fry Societies, said her organization has filed for a judicial review of Saskatchewan coroner’s Timothy Hawryluk’s decision to deny the group standing during the inquest into the death Kinew James.Pate said the organization will be asking the Saskatchewan court to either grant Elizabeth Fry standing or send the issue to another coroner for review.“I was shocked. I can’t imagine not seeing us having an interest and being able to provide some important input and perspective in the inquest into Kinew’s death unless (Hawryluk) has no experience in this area,” said Pate. “We would never have imagined we would not be granted standing. There was no indication. All along we have been corresponding with the coroner’s office to have standing and indicating we desire to have standing since Kinew died.”Saskatchewan’s Office of the Chief Coroner did not return an APTN National News call requesting comment.James died at the age of 35 on Jan. 20, 2013 in Saskatoon’s Regional Psychiatric Centre. James, originally from Winnipeg, was diabetic and died from a heart-attack. She was on the tail-end of a 15 year-sentence.James was found unresponsive in her cell and declared dead-on-arrival at the hospital. It has since emerged that other prisoners held at the psychiatric centre repeatedly pressed emergency call buttons to alert staff James needed immediate medical assistance, according to a document on the case posted on Elizabeth Fry’s website.The Elizabeth Fry Society provided support for James throughout her time within the prison system and its officials met with her two weeks before her death, said Pate.James suffered from a mental illness and often came into conflict with guards and was convicted of assaulting correctional staff.Donald Worme, the lawyer representing James’ family, said they support Elizabeth Fry’s request for standing.“I think it’s unfortunate. I think it is really short-sighted. Obviously Elizabeth Frye is a group that has a very focused mandate and they are good at what they do. They can bring a lot of their experience to this and help the system help itself,” he said. “It seems to me the system is more concerned about maintaining the status quo.”While the inquest is scheduled to begin the first week of January, Worme said he will be seeking to push back the start date to February or March to better prepare for the firstname.lastname@example.org@JorgeBarrera
21 October 2010An independent United Nations human rights expert expressed disappointment today that Myanmar’s process for its upcoming elections – the nation’s first in two decades – is “deeply flawed,” urging the release of all prisoners of conscience, including Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi. The UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights Situation in Myanmar, Tomás Ojea Quintana, told reporters in New York today that “conditions for the general elections are limited under the current circumstances,” adding that the potential for the polls to bring meaningful change remain uncertain.“I believe that the Myanmar Government needs to send a strong signal to the international community about its commitment to hold genuine elections, and the unconditional and immediate release of prisoners of conscience would be such a signal,” he said.Yesterday, the expert presented his report focusing on the landmark 7 November elections, only the third multiparty poll in more than 60 years since independence, to the General Assembly.He told the 192-member body that the freedoms of expression and assembly have been further restricted through the implementation of election laws, while party registration requirements and the high cost of registering candidates have hampered parties not backed by the Government.“It is clear that the process has not been inclusive,” Mr. Quintana stressed.The Government, he said, has rightfully pointed out that elections are only one step in Myanmar’s transition to democracy. “We must remember that true national reconciliation and a commitment to protecting and promoting human rights are also necessary for any real transition.”The Rapporteur, who serves in an independent and unpaid capacity, underlined the key role played by justice and accountability in this transition. “We have seen too many cases in the world of incomplete transitions that have sacrificed justice for the mistaken notion that this would achieve peace and stability,” he said. “Now is the time to end the widespread and systematic violations of human rights that have been occurring in Myanmar for decades.”Since assuming his position in May 2008, Mr. Quintana has visited Myanmar three times, meeting with prisoners of conscience and senior executive and judicial authorities.He expressed regret that his last request to visit the country in August was not granted. “I strongly believe that direct dialogue with the authorities and other stakeholders through country visits is indispensable for the conduct of my mandate.”
The last two IAEA inspectors left the DPRK and travelled to Beijing. The Agency said it will keep an office in the country, and its equipment there has been placed in storage after an inventory was completed.The 35-member Board is scheduled to meet on 6 January to consider a report from IAEA Director-General Mohamed ElBaradei, who recently spoke about the next steps.The inspectors – previously stationed at the nuclear facility in Nyongbyong – left following direct confirmation from DPRK officials that they should leave the country immediately, and that the DPRK had decided not to respond to Mr. ElBaradei’s letter urging Pyongyang to allow the monitors to remain at the site.”This is a country in defiance of its international obligations,” Mr. ElBaradei said on Saturday. “It sets a dangerous precedent for the integrity of the non-proliferation regime.”
AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email OTTAWA – New mortgage rules to discourage homebuyers from borrowing too much could further dampen a fragile economy, but it’s a risk worth taking, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said Friday.Concerned about the continuing heat in the housing market, last week Flaherty intervened on mortgages for the fourth time in less than four years, cutting the maximum amortization period for government insured mortgages to 25 years from 30.The move is meant to discourage marginal buyers by raising monthly mortgage costs, but a TD Bank analysis this week calculated the measure would also likely have the effect of dampening economic growth by 0.2 percentage points in 2013.In a conference call from Galway, Ireland, where he was wrapping up a one-week visit, Flaherty said he had not read the TD report, but doesn’t disagree that the economy could be affected.“I realize it may have some dampening effect on the economy and I realize it may have some dampening effect in the residential real estate market,” he said.“We are prepared to take that risk, quite frankly, because of the greater risk of the development over time of a housing bubble.”Flaherty, as well as Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney, have been fretting about the continuing strength of the housing market for several years, particularly since the market has been fuelled by borrowing, rather than rising incomes.The two policy-makers have long expressed concern that credit continues to grow, although at a slower pace, with household debt to income hitting a record high of 152 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2011.Meanwhile, analysts believe low interest rates have pushed up house prices to unsustainable levels and that a correction of between 10 and 25 per cent could result.Flaherty said he expected Canadians will continue to buy homes, but if they now purchase “less house or less condominium, quite frankly, I think that’s a good thing.”The government believes the move, which also affected home equity loans, could reduce demand by up to five per cent once new rules are in place starting July 9.The minister said he has heard analysts talk about the market cooling, but noted that last week’s data showed prices on average continuing to rise.He remains concerned that the condo market in Toronto and other large cities shows no sign of let-up.“Money is cheap these days, mortgage rates are low, the banks are lending money at low rates, and some people can’t resist that temptation,” he said. “So we are making it more difficult to obtain insured mortgages at low monthly payments.”The other policy tool available is for the Bank of Canada to push up interest rates, but given the fragile economy, many economists don’t expect any movement until mid-2013 or possibly later. by Julian Beltrame, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 29, 2012 2:22 pm MDT Flaherty says action to cool housing may dampen growth, but risk worth taking

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, July 10th 2017: Global rating agency Standard and Poor’s has maintained its BBB+ rating for the Turks and Caicos. The latest means an upward movement from stable to positive , marking the fourth consecutive year with the strong grading. The rating comes after an S&P team visited the islands in June where it met with officials and sectors within the country. The agency’s report says it expects the TCI’s economy to grow, and “steadily strengthen over the next three years”.It anticipates growth to come primarily from continued recovery in its largest visitor market, the U.S., as well as growth in public spending. S&P anticipates these trends to allow the GDP per capita to reach $25,753 in 2017.However, one concern the agency mentions, “the TCI’s growth prospects is subject to volatility, as more than half of its GDP comes from tourism, making it vulnerable to external shocks.” The BBB+ rating is a strong factor in attracting foreign direct investment to TCI and building confidence amongst its existing business community.Meanwhile, the Honourable Premier, Sharlene Cartwright Robinson attributes the steady rating to works done to the retirement of the TCI $170M bond, the national wealth fund established, and the achievement of all the indicators outlined in the Public Finance Management Framework.The Premier says her government will ensure the required positive and sustainable injections into the TCI economy is upheld, while she adds that public and private sector reforms remain on the cards to improve TCI’s infrastructure.#MagneticMediaNews#Standard&PoorsTCIcreditRatingBBB+ Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:

Prothom Alo IllustrationTwo Rohingya men were killed in what the law enforcers called a gunfight with police at Jadimura Camp in Teknaf upazila of Cox’s Bazar early Monday, reports UNB.The deceased were Mohammad Alam, son of Bacha Miah of Noyapara Camp and Mohammad Rafiq, son of Ali Hossain, a resident of Jadumara Camp.Pradip Kumar Das, officer-in-charge of Teknaf model police station, said on information, a team of police conducted a drive in the area.Sensing the presence of police, the drug traders opened fire on them, forcing them to fire back, triggering the gunfight that left the duo dead on the spot.Two sub-inspectors Sabbir and Babul and police constable Main Uddin were also injured, police claimed.Police also recovered two pistols, seven rounds of bullet and 2200 yaba tablets from the spot.
A worker fumigates an area to prevent mosquitos from breeding in a residential area on 21 August 2019. Photo: UNBDhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) mayor Atiqul Islam on Wednesday claimed that they were not getting cooperation from the city dwellers in conducting the combing operation to destroy Aedes mosquito larvae at houses, UNB reports.“While conducting combing drive, our city corporation officials are facing obstacles by house owners as they’re not allowing them to go inside,” UNB quotes the mayor as saying.The mayor came up with the remarks while speaking at a meeting on Aedes mosquito elimination drive at a convention centre in the city’s Gulshan area.Narrating his own experience, Atiqul said he had to wait for at least 45 minutes at some houses to carry out drives. “They (house owners) kept their lifts inoperative and didn’t allow us to go up to rooftops saying that keys were missing.”He said the DNCC officials are finding it difficult to continue the drive to destroy the mosquito breeding grounds due to noncooperation by house owners. “So, we’ll take actions from now on under sections 183, 187, 269 and 270 of the Penal Code of 1860 against those who will try to create obstacles to conducting the drive.”In light of their experience from their pilot operation at DNCC’s ward No. 19, the mayor said they will carry out the combing drive in the remaining 35 wards from Sunday. “I think city dwellers will cooperate with us and the councillors will play their due role in this regard.”Speaking at the programme, local government and rural development minister Md Tajul Islam said their ministry will provide all-out support to the city authorities for fighting against dengue and Aedes mosquitoes. “We request our councillors to play a proactive role in eliminating Aedes mosquitoes.”He voiced satisfaction over the DNCC role to destroy the breeding grounds of Aedes mosquitoes.
4GB Ports (excluding USB) Size Video Memory Wi-Fi Model 14.1 x 9.3 x 0.5~0.7 inches Optical Drive Speed I love being wrong (sometimes). Case in point, the Dell XPS 15. I loved last year’s model with its heady mix of looks and power, so much so that I didn’t think it could get much better. But the latest XPS 15 ($2,649 reviewed, $1,099 starting) is a lot better. This marks the first time the XPS 15 gets an OLED display, which is in itself monumental. But the system also packs an overclockable Core i9 processor and pairs it with a discrete Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU, making for one beautiful beast.. Yes, they also fixed the webcam.article continued below There are however, some trade-offs for all that beauty and power — namely the battery life, which is just over 8 hours. But on a notebook this stacked, I’m betting it’s a flaw you’ll be willing to overlook. Dell XPS 15 price and configurations I tested the $2,649 configuration of the Dell XPS 15, which has a 9th Gen 2.4-GHz Intel Core i9-9980HK processor with 32GB of RAM, a 1TB m.2 NVMe PCIe SSD, an Intel UHD Graphics 630 GPU, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU with 4GB of VRAM and a 4K OLED display. The $1,099 base model has a 2.4-GHz Intel Core i5-9300H CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB m.2 NVMe PCIe SSD, an Intel UHD Graphics 630 GPU and a 1920 x 1080 display. The $1,599 iteration gives you a 2.6-GHz Intel Core i7-9750H CPU with 8GB of RAM, a 256GB m.2 NVMe PCIe SSD, an Intel UHD Graphics 630 GPU, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU with 4GB of VRAMand a 1920 x 1080 display. An additional $400 doubles the RAM and storage and adds a 4K panel. Design Aluminum and carbon fiber — a match made in techie heaven. At least it is when you’re talking about an XPS laptop. On the XPS 15, the combination is upscale and modern, something you’d be proud to show off in a coffee shop or board room. The chrome Dell logo gleams in the center of the silver anodized aluminum lid, just like the slightly chamfered edges of the system. Adding rigidity and a stylish flair to the mix is the carbon-fiber keyboard deck, which houses the full-size keyboard, a large touchpad and the circular power button playing double duty as a fingerprint reader. As with all modern XPS notebooks, the latest 15 rocks those barely-there bezels, courtesy of Dell’s InfinityEdge design. But unlike all but the most recent XPS 13, the webcam on the 15-inch is right where it belongs, smack-dab in the top bezel. MORE: Best Laptops: Top Rated Notebooks, Chromebooks, 2-in-1s Weighing 4.5 pounds, the 14.1 x 9.3 x 0.5~0.7-inch XPS 15 is on a par with its competition. The 15-inch HP Spectre x360 (4.5 pounds, 14.2 x 9.8 x 0.8 inches) is only slightly bigger, while the 4 pound, 13.8 x 9.5 x 0.6-inch Apple MacBook Pro (15-inch) is smaller and lighter. Ports Dell has outfitted the XPS 15 with enough ports and slots to make it a formidable workhorse. It’s one of the few premium systems to offer an SD card reader. In addition, you’ll find a USB 3.1 Type-A port with a wedge lock slot and a battery indicator button on the right side of the laptops. Along the left is another USB 3.1 Type-A port with a Thunderbolt 3 port, HDMI 2.0 and jacks for power and a headset. Display Let’s give a big round of applause to the latest member of the OLED club. This marks the first time Dell has put an OLED panel on the XPS 15. Boasting dramatic, lively colors with rich, detailed contrast, the XPS’ 15.6-inch 4K (3840 x 2160) panel must be seen to be believed. I was immediately taken with how the amber street lights glowed against actress Jodie Turner-Smith’s warm mocha skin and accentuated each twist in her long box braids as she rode in the car. Smaller details like the patchiness of Daniel Kaluuya’s beard and the small water droplets deposited in his hair from melting snow were easy to see. The non-OLED 4K version of the XPS 15 isn’t a slouch by any means, successfully showing off the luxurious sheen of Kaluuya’s crimson velour jumpsuit. But it wasn’t as vibrant as its OLED counterpart. Measuring for color reproduction capability revealed the OLED XPS 15 can produce 239% of the sRGB gamut, while the non-OLED system hit 210%. Both displays are much more vivid than the 128% premium laptop average and the MacBook Pro’s 114%. However, neither laptop was a match for the Spectre x360’s 258%. Wowzers, is that bright. When I first started reviewing the OLED XPS, I thought it was pretty bright. Then I realized that it was only at 50%. When I set it to maximum, I almost needed to whip out some shades to look at the 626-nit panel. The non-OLED screen averaged 418, nits, which is more on a par with the 334-nit average, the 403 nits from the MacBook Pro and the 483 nits from the MacBook Pro. And while the XPS 15’s display is stunning, it’s also durable thanks to being made from Corning Gorilla Glass 4. It comes in handy when you want to reach out and use the touch screen. And while the 10-point capacitive touch screen is quick and accurate, you might want to invest in the optional Active Pen ($49.99) to avoid unsightly smudges on this lovely screen. Just in case the colors aren’t vivid enough for you, Dell preloaded several utilities to help. PremierColor lets you tweak color gamut, temperature and brightness. When it’s time to watch video, you have CinemaColor, which offers several easy profiles to quickly adjust the screen. There’s also DolbyVision, which can further enhance color and contrast on standard definition panels. Audio In the next iteration of the XPS 15-inch, I want top-mounted speakers. Dell should put them in the hinge or toward the bottom corners. As it stands, the XPS 15’s bottom-mounted speakers are loud, loud enough to fill my smallish living room with audio that was clear, yet shallow depending on the song. For instance, the string orchestra accompanying Sam Cooke on “A Change Is Gonna Come” was just as sweet and lilting as his raspy tenor was morose yet hopeful. However, the bass was lacking on Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts,” although the artist’s rap/singing was nice and clear, as was the piano. To help enhance the audio quality, Dell preinstalled Waves MaxxAudioPro software. It has 24 presets, including Hip-Hop (Soft), R&B, Movies, Oldies, Loudness and Classical. Keyboard and touchpad Maybe it’s the 79 grams of actuation force talking here, but typing on the XPS 15’s island-style keyboard is a mighty comfortable experience. Despite the rather shallow 1.1 millimeters of key travel (1.5 is our preferred minimum), my fingers never bottomed out as I typed the review. I even hit my usual 70 words per minute on the 10fastfingers typing test with no problem. The keys are large and have generous spacing. And the backlighting allowed me to burn the midnight oil without too many errors. The 4.1 x 3.1-inch Precision touchpad is spacious, fast and responsive. Performing Windows 10 gestures such as a three-finger tap to summon Action Center or a three-finger swipe to access recent apps was near instantaneous. Performance Who wants more power? I do. And Dell more than delivers with the XPS 15, cramming an overclockable 9th Gen 2.4-GHz Intel Core i9-9980HK processor with 32GB of RAM into an otherwise slim chassis. The laptop ate through my real-world tests, streaming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse on Netflix with 25 additional open Google Chrome tabs, some of which were streaming from Twitch or YouTube while others ran Slack and Tweetdeck. The XPS 15 delivered scintillating results on our synthetic tests as well, nailing an impressive 28,882 on Geekbench 4.3 overall performance test. That simply shattered the 16,226 premium laptop average as well as the 17,195 put up by the Spectre x360 and its 1.8-GHz Intel Core i7-8565U CPU. But equipped with its own 8-core Intel Core i9-9980HK CPU, the MacBook Pro managed to deliver a result of 31,012. MORE: Laptops with the Best Overall Performance The XPS 15 got a measure of revenge on the Handbrake test, taking only 8 minutes to transcode a 4K video to 1080p. That’s faster than the MacBook Pro’s 8:10 as well as the Spectre x360’s 21:13 and the 22:13 average. When we ran our usual File Transfer test, the XPS 15’s 1TB m.2 NVMe PCIe SSD duplicated 4.97GB of multimedia files in 10 seconds for a transfer rate of 508 megabytes per second, beating the Spectre x360 SSD (424 MBps). However, both scores are below the 620.3 MBps category average. We also ran the Black Magic storage test, in which the XPS obtained a read/write speed of 2,116/2,224 MBps. The MacBook Pro’s SSD posted a faster result of 2,612/2,611 MBps. In addition to its integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 GPU, the XPS 15 also has a discrete Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU with 4GB of VRAM for more intensive tasks. When we ran the Dirt 3 benchmark, the XPS 15 achieved 80 frames per second beating the 68-fps premium laptop average. However, with their respective AMD Radeon Pro Vega and Nvidia MX150 GPUs, the MacBook Pro and Spectre x360 notched 120 and 118 fps. Battery Life There’s a price to pay for all that power and a screen that gorgeous. Thanks to all that high-powered finery, the OLED iteration of the XPS 15 lasted only 8 hours and 7 minutes on our battery test (continuous web surfing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness). The non-OLED model lasted a bit longer at 8:48. Both times will get you through a full work day and are longer-lasting than the Spectre x360’s 7:46. But the 8:26 premium average outpaces the OLED XPS 15, while the MacBook Pro, which lasted 10:21, bested the competition. Heat The XPS 15 can get a bit hot under the collar, but thanks to venting located in front of the hinge and along the bottom of the laptop, it’s never uncomfortable to use in your lap. After 15 minutes of playing a YouTube video, the touchpad measured a cool 88 degrees Fahrenheit. The center of the keyboard reached 96 degrees, which is just above our 95-degree comfort threshold. The notebook’s undercarriage was a warm 102 degrees. Webcam Dell just might have one of the best webcams I’ve used on a premium laptop, and they made it themselves. After consistent complaints about the “nose cam,” the company went back to the lab and create a shooter measuring only 0.9 inches, making it Dell’s smallest to date. But it’s not the size that matters, it’s the image quality. And I’m happy to report that Dell doesn’t disappoint. The test shots I took in my living room had accurate color from my chocolate complexion, purple locs and marigold-and-white dress. There’s definitely some visual noise, but it’s not nearly as bad as what you’ll find on competing systems. Plus, it was sharp enough that I could make out the heart cutout on my ring when I gave the peace sign. Software and warranty Dell’s usual cast of helpful pre-installed utilities make an appearance on the XPS 15. You get Power Manager, which runs diagnostics on the system’s battery as well as adjusts fan speed and power consumption for more demanding tasks. Mobile Connect lets you mirror your smartphone to your laptop, so you can call a Lyft or play mobile games like The Elder Scrolls: Blades on the XPS’ captivating screen. Need to troubleshoot an issue? Dell also included Help & Support, which features informative videos, shows your warranty status and runs system diagnostics. There’s also a fair amount of bloatware thanks to Windows 10 including Plex, Digital Delivery and Update ensures that your apps, drivers and BIOS are kept up to date. MORE: Dell Customer Service Rating: Undercover Tech Support Review There’s a fair amount of bloatware on the XPS 15, though, including Plex, Music Maker Jam, PicsArt Photo Studio and Netflix. That’s not to say there aren’t a few useful additions. The notebook also has McAfee Security and Dropbox with 20GB of free storage for a year. You also get Killer Control Center, so you can set which applications get bandwidth authority. The Dell XPS 15 ships with a one-year limited warranty. See how Dell fared in our annual Best and Worst Brands and Tech Support Showdown special reports. Bottom Line Power, I need more power! The iteration of the Dell XPS 2019 is a workhorse of the highest caliber. Inside that stylish, 0.7-inch thick aluminum chassis lies an overclockable Intel Core i9 processor, speedy 1TB m.2 NVMe PCIe SSD and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU, effectively giving consumers premium good looks with workstation-caliber power. And speaking of good looks, you can configure this bad boy with a spectacular 4K OLED display, which makes just about anything look great. And at $2,649, it’s thousands of dollars less than a tricked-out Apple MacBook Pro ($6,549). However, the 15-inch MacBook Pro does offer longer battery life and a faster SSD, but it’s not the best value in its class. The 15-inch HP Spectre x360 is a more reasonable alternative. For $2,049, you get an OLED display that’s even more vivid than the XPS 15, but lacks the battery life or performance of either competitor. Overall, if you’re looking for extreme power and beauty without having to take out a second mortgage, the Dell XPS 15 is a top option.

Chechnya was condemned by world leaders and LGBT activists after the news of “gay concentration camps” in the republic reached the international press in April 2017.He told Time: “They tell me that a demon lives inside me. It’s getting worse here. Before somebody kills me, I want to tell my story to the world.”Following the interview, authorities forced him to apologise on national television, claiming his “coming out” was made under the influence of epilepsy medication.Chechens were told Mr Eskarkhanov is mentally ill and that he had been brainwashed by Westerners.“They disgraced me before the Chechen people and the Chechen leader, I was framed,” he told Grozny TV.“That’s why I apologise to the residents of Chechnya, the leadership of Chechnya, the Chechens living in the North Caucasus and Europe.”The report labeled him as a “mentally-ill person” and blamed the Western media for sensationalising his story.He is now living as a refugee in Germany, having been forced out of his homeland.“They made it clear that if I continue to talk, there would be problems,” he told Kavkazsky Uzel.“They said that I must first think about my family.”It was reported by pro-democracy Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta that gay and bi men had been rounded up in a “purge” and were being abused, tortured and killed in the camps.Elena Milashina, a journalist for Novaya Gazeta, uncovered evidence of campaign of abuse against gay men in Chechnya that shocked the world. It was recently revealed she is to be honoured by Harvard for her bravery. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) The first man to publicly come out as gay in Chechnya has revealed he was publicly shamed and forced to take back his comments.Mover Eskarkhanov received death threats and was forced to apologise on national television after he told Time magazine that he was gay. Another victim, Maxim Lyapunov, described being held for 12 days in a blood-soaked cell, beaten with sticks and humiliated by police in a shocking report.The 30-year-old says he was grabbed by two men in the middle of the night and dragged into the back of car.Despite reporting his lengthy ordeal to authorities, Mr Lapunov says there has been no investigation into what happened.Instead police forced him to name another man, interrogated and beat him.“They burst in every 10 or 15 minutes shouting that I was gay and they would kill me,” he said, speaking at a small gathering in Moscow convened by human rights activists reported by the BBC.“Then they beat me with a stick for a long time: in the legs, ribs, buttocks and back. When I started to fall, they pulled me up and carried on,” he said quietly.“Every day they assured me they would kill me, and told me how.”Mr Lapunov says he was barely able to walk by the time police let him go.“I could barely crawl when I left,” he told the human rights gathering, adding that the groans and screams of other detainees continue to give him nightmares.“It should not be like this. We are all people. We all have rights,” he said.“If those rights can be violated [in Chechnya], it could happen in any region. And no-one knows whose son or daughter will be next.”The Russian LGBT Network has published reports of numerous testimonies from people who have experienced persecution and abuse in Chechnya.Despite the testimonies, Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov dismissed them as “nonsense” invented by “devils” and claims there are “no gays” in the state.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… France welcomes the first refugee from Chechnya during Putin visitChechnya one year on – what’s happening there now?A survivor of Chechnya’s anti-gay purge has just been kidnapped in RussiaPINK NEWS-
The Senate confirmed Jerome Powell as the 16th chairman of the Federal Reserve on Tuesday after an 85-12 vote in favor of his confirmation. Powell will take over from current Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen after her term expires in February 2018.The choice of Powell as new Fed Chair is a departure in a long tradition of reappointing Fed chairs to a second term since G. William Miller was the Fed Chair in 1979 under President Jimmy Carter.Powell has served as a governor of the nation’s central bank since he was nominated by President Obama in 2012, but much of his career has been in investment banking and private equity. If elected Powell is the first former investment banker to hold the position.A Princeton University graduate, Powell was a lawyer in New York before he joined the investment bank Dillon Reed & Co. in 1984. He stayed there until he joined the Treasury Department in 1990. After he left Treasury, Powell worked as a partner at Carlyle Group, the private equity, and asset management giant, from 1997 to 2005.Powell expressed his thoughts on the normalization of Monetary Policy during his speech in June 2017 for the Economic Club of New York. Powell said:”The healthy state of our economy and favorable outlook suggest that the FOMC should continue the process of normalizing monetary policy. The Committee has been patient in raising rates, and that patience has paid dividends.”In addition, Powell largely supports Dodd-Frank, the sweeping set of reforms instituted after the financial crisis to make banks healthier, CNN reports.“The nomination of Jerome Powell is an encouraging signal that the monetary policy that has been successful in stabilizing and maintaining the economy will continue in the near term, said Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado. “Powell’s wealth of diversified experience and deep understanding of our economy will serve him and the nation well in the years to come.” in Government, News Share January 23, 2018 504 Views Senate Confirms Powell as Federal Reserve Chair fed chair Janet Yellen Jerome Powell 2018-01-23 Staff Writer
Go back to the e-newsletterThe last several years have seen the quality and diversity of food and drink options in Mammoth Lakes grow by leaps and bounds. That trend continues in 2016 with a new wine bar, brewery and a number of new restaurants set to greet visitors.This American summer will also see new ways to experience and understand the Eastern Sierra Mountains that surround Mammoth Lakes with the Welcome Center and Eastern Sierra Interpretive Association adding additional programming to provide visitors with a more immersive educational experience focusing on the region’s unique natural and cultural history.Food and drinkBlack Velvet Wine Bar: When coffee industry veterans Matt and Gracie Hammer opened Black Velvet Coffee Shop five years ago, they took it one cup at time: every order served in a 12-ounce cup, brewed pour-over and with attention paid to the smallest details. They’ve taken the same approach with their latest venture, a wine bar in Black Velvet’s tastefully appointed space on Main Street. With a focus on boutique wines and a selection that changes weekly, the wine bar is a great après option and a frequent venue for tastings.Black Doubt Brewing: Home brewers Drew and Kerissa Wallace followed their passion when opening Black Doubt Brewing in December. All Black Doubt beers are brewed by hand, 100 gallons at a time, in the same tasting room where the beers are poured. It’s an excellent addition to what’s quickly becoming a burgeoning microbrewing scene in Mammoth Lakes.Delicious Kitchen: The name is as straightforward as the food. There’s nothing fancy about owners/chefs Eracleo (Rocky) Rodriguez and Eugino Ramos’ new eatery on Old Mammoth Road and that’s part of the charm. Just hearty portions of honest, fresh American and Mexican classics.Food Cache Cafe: If you get out what you put in, than Food Cache Cafe is your spot for fuelling up for (or recovering from) a day a fun in the outdoors. The menu features locally sourced vegan, vegetarian and healthy eats and drinks for breakfast and lunch, perfect for grabbing on the go or enjoying in the dining room. Owners Erick Codoner and Karl Dawson are long-time locals who have nearly a quarter century of combined restaurant and cooking experience.New chef at Jimmy’s Taverna: Since opening in 2013, Jimmy’s has delivered on its unique promise, serving up authentic Greek dishes in a charming setting that complements the rotating seasonal menu of classically prepared Greek fare. New Chef Jeremy Graham has kept a good thing going while folding some of his own ideas into a kitchen that puts out some of Mammoth Lakes’ best food. Graham is a graduate of the Scottsdale Culinary Institute, and brings to Jimmy’s a cooking style that includes classical French techniques combined with an eclectic fusion of European and Asian cuisine to showcase the natural flavours and vibrant colours of food. Graham believes in an all-natural approach, with simplicity being the key to bringing out the true beauty of food.ActivitiesMammoth Lakes Welcome Center and the Eastern Sierra Interpretive Association: From full moon night hikes, to skins and skulls interpretive displays, plus information about the Eastern Sierra, the Mammoth Lakes Welcome Center, with help from the Eastern Sierra Interpretive Association, is your hub for activity this summer. Spend a Saturday at the Welcome Center’s plaza and enjoy live music and activities, or stop into the auditorium for a free nature video. Plus don’t miss campfire programmes at 7pm at the amphitheatre every Friday night beginning in July. For specific programme times and a full schedule, stop into the Mammoth Lakes Welcome Center at 2510 Main Street.Tesla Electric Charging Stations: Mammoth Lakes is now home to a Tesla Supercharging Station with eight superchargers capable of a full charge in minutes, not hours. Located at the park and ride lot in downtown Mammoth Lakes, the station, which was built and will be maintained by Tesla, comes in response to consumer demand from electric vehicle owners for a station in Mammoth Lakes. It also places Mammoth Lakes in a unique chain of planned stations between Reno and Las Vegas and complements several EV-charging stations already available in Mammoth Lakes at hotels for the use of guests. The Westin Monache, 80/50, The Village Lodge and Juniper Springs Lodge all sport both Tesla and standard chargers. And with Tesla Supercharging Stations also already in place along US 395 in Lone Pine, Calif and InyoKern, Calif., Mammoth Lakes is now easily accessible to Southern California electric vehicle drivers.Go back to the e-newsletter
