It brings together all the specialist police officers required for such an event, alongside partners including the London Ambulance Service and London Fire Brigade.Their Royal Highnesses then travelled to the Royal London Hospital to visit members of the public who were injured in the London Bridge attack.Twelve casualties were brought to the hospital following the attack and they were treated by the hospital’s dedicated staff.The Prince and Duchess had the opportunity to meet some of the medical and support staff who were involved in looking after those injured in the attack, and thank them for their work.Source:Royal.uklast_img read more

Ban Kimoon urges compromise on Iraqs Constitution

As Iraq’s Constitutional Review Committee prepares to submit the results of its deliberations to the full parliament, Mr. Ban’s spokesperson issued a statement emphasizing the importance of the process to achieve national reconciliation in Iraq. Core issues dealt with by the Committee lie at the heart of how Iraq’s system will function, involving a balanced division of powers between the federal government and the regions as well as a system for the fair distribution of oil revenues throughout the country. “Striking a compromise on the core constitutional issues at the heart of Iraq’s system of governance is essential for establishing stability in the country,” Michele Montas told reporters in New York. “The Secretary-General hopes that Iraqi leaders will embrace this opportunity by rising above narrow sectarian interests, remaining open to compromise, and fostering consensus,” she said, pledging the UN’s full commitment to a national dialogue towards a Constitution than can be supported by all Iraqis. The statement also lauded the Committee for carrying out its work “responsibly in an atmosphere of mutual respect.” On Monday, Mr. Ban’s top envoy to Iraq also called for compromise on the Constitution. In the absence of a conclusion, Special Representative Ashraf Qazi warned that “the review process has the potential to be extremely divisive exercise.” The UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) said the process offers an opportunity to address the real gaps and problems in the current constitutional text, and that improving the system of governance would be beneficial to all. 18 May 2007United Nations Secretary-General today urged Iraqi leaders to compromise on the Constitution in the interests of the country as a whole. read more

UN marks firstever International Day of Rural Women with call for action

In developing countries, women – who are disproportionately poor and illiterate – do most of the farm work, but own a miniscule percentage of the land, he said in his message for the occasion, which falls on the eve of World Food Day.According to the UN International Labour Organization (ILO), 428 million women work in the agricultural sector worldwide, compared to 608 million men.“Our mission is to foster a world where the woman who farms is also a woman with educational opportunities, political access, and a voice at the negotiating table,” Mr. Ban said.Empowering rural women will increase the well-being of their children, communities and countries, the message noted. “At the same time, we must recognize that improvements in roads, health care, water and sanitation systems and environmental protection will elevate not only women but society as a whole.”The Secretary-General urged countries to prioritize rural women’s needs at the follow-up International Conference on Financing for Development, which seeks to review the implementation of the 2002 landmark anti-poverty agreement known as the Monterrey Consensus, to be held in Doha in November.“By making women active partners in addressing the world’s pressing food crisis, we can do much more than solve the immediate problem; we can pave the way for a more secure global future,” he said.A recent UN report points out that rural women face disadvantages in their access to healthcare and education.Gender inequalities persist in school attendance, with a greater percentage of rural boys attending schools than girls, due to such factors as the need for girls’ labour and the low education levels of their parents.Reproductive care for rural women is inadequate, the report states, and maternal mortality rates remain high, especially in sub-Saharan Africa.The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and the World Bank have teamed up for a joint publication, released today, on how rural women can overcome such challenges as discrimination, poverty and hunger.The Gender in Agriculture Sourcebook, based on the work of 100 international experts, highlights how increasing women’s involvement in the design and field testing of crop varieties, machinery and tools has the twin benefit of boosting both innovations and agricultural productivity.“Compared to men, women have much less access to essential productive resources such as land, irrigation, agricultural technology and extension services, less education and training, and fewer financial resources like credit,” said Marcella Villarreal, Director of FAO’s Gender, Equity and Rural Employment Division.Information for the book was compiled over a two-year period, and draws attention to successful projects from all regions. 15 October 2008The United Nations today has marked the inaugural International Day of Rural Women, with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon issuing a call for greater appreciation of their role in providing food and incalculable support they give to their communities. read more

Ottawa to clarify foreign investment guidelines Harper

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Stephen Harper is promising to reveal new guidelines on foreign takeovers amid growing unease about the meaning of the government’s surprise rejection of the latest takeover bid of a Canadian resource company.The prime minister said Monday new guidelines will be issued “soon” and that most applications would be accepted.The statement comes as markets roiled over the Friday night rejection of the $6-billion takeover offer of Progress Energy Resources by Malaysian state-owned oil company Petronas, and what the decision might portend for the $15.1-billion proposal by a Chinese state-owned to acquire Nexen Energy.We do not have a time scheduled, but soon the government will create a new framework for these investmentsProgress shares were down about eight per cent or $1.75 at $19.90 in afternoon trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.Reports have suggested the government waited until the last minute, just before the midnight deadline, to announce the decision because it wanted a 30-day extension on its review, but Petronas said no.[np-related]“We do not have a time scheduled, but soon the government will create a new framework for these investments,” Harper told reporters in French at a news conference. “Within that framework that will come out soon, we will be able to welcome the overwhelming majority of investments.”He was less clear in English, saying that Ottawa “will give greater clarity on our policy framework when we take a couple of decisions that are before us at the present time.”Industry Minister Christian Paradis said the government was “not satisfied” that the acquisition would bring “a net benefit” to Canada, but said Petronas has 27 days to come back with a better offer.The minister would offer no other explanation, but trade lawyer Lawrence Herman of Cassels Brock in Toronto said he believes Petronas failed to convince Ottawa it would operate under market principles and not as arm of the Malaysian government.“This is a very significant decision. It draws a line in the sand and says to any state-owned investor, ‘If you want to come into Canada, we expected (you) to operate in accordance to free market principles in terms of corporate governance, decision-making and commercial operations,’” he said.He agreed the lack of clarity about how Ottawa decides whether to approve foreign acquisitions, particularly from state-owned enterprises, has become serious enough that it may be discouraging investments that the government has said are needed to grow the economy.“If you are courting China and other parts of Asia, you’ve got to expect a lot of these will come through state-owned enterprises,” he said.That would not be happening if the government had followed through on its pledge — made after rejecting a takeover of PotashCorp in 2010 — to issue clear guidelines on how it reviews applications under the Foreign Investment Act. Now it is paying the price for lack of foresight, he said.“This improvisation does not in any way restore confidence in the Canadian public in a process that is profoundly broken and it certainly does nothing to restore investor confidence,” he said “This is no way to manage one of the world’s largest economies.” read more

UNP calls for polls commission

The UNP MP recalled that there were direct allegations against the government for using state resources, helicopters, state bungalows, offering meals inside state bungalows and spending public funds during the 2010 Presidential Elections to the benefit of their candidate. “It is reported in the media that the President Mahinda Rajapaksa has stated at a meeting with Media Chiefs, elections could be held under the Commissioner of Elections without an Elections Commission.  An Elections Commission was established by the 17th Amendment which was passed in Parliament by 2/3 majority, to achieve certain goals which included restraining powers surrounding the Executive Presidency, establishment of a strong democracy and good governance.  17th Amendment was repealed by introducing the 18th Amendment, which was passed by 2/3 majority obtained by winning the Members of Parliament of the Opposition by offering various benefits and other devious methods, not by the mandate of the people. In the first round of this exercise Attorney General’s Department and Police Department was taken under the President.  By centralizing more and more powers round the Executive President, the position of the Executive Presidency was converted to a Constitutional Monarch.  Department of Elections Commission which is a very vital Institution for the democracy of this country too is taken under the President,” he said. The United National Party (UNP) has urged the government to establish the Elections Commission according to the 17th amendment prior to the Northern Provincial Council Elections.UNP MP Kau Jayasuriya said that with the absence of an Independent Elections Commission several incidents reported during elections after 2005 had proved that there is a truth in the allegations that none of the elections conducted since then were free and fair. ”We recognize the incumbent Commissioner of Elections as an efficient and honest officer.  But those who respect democracy in this county have a doubt in their minds whether it is possible to overcome the influence of the political authority.  The President himself has announced that the Provincial Council Elections for Northern Province will be held in September also it is reported that elections will be held for North Western and Central Provincial Councils,” he said.Jayasuriya says the statement of the President that an independent elections commission is not essential creates a very serious issue whether it would be possible to conduct free and affair elections at least in the future.  (Colombo Gazette) read more

EU regulator levels cartel charge against three top banks

first_imgTHE EUROPEAN COMPETITION regulator has said that JPMorganChase, HSBC and Credit Agricole were part of a ‘cartel’ manipulating the price of financial products.It follows on from record fines imposed on banks found guilty of the same charges late last year.The Commission fined Barclays, Deutsche Bank and Societie Generale €1.7 billion over collusion to manipulate a benchmark interest rate, which benefited the banks concerned.Speaking today, European Commissioner for Competition Joaquin Almunia said that since imposing the fines on the four banks that admitted culpability last December:“We continued our investigation under the standard cartel procedure for the three parties that did not settle with the commission, CA, HSBC and JPMorganChase.We have now reached the preliminary conclusion that these three banks may have pariticpated in this cartel too.”The EU will now send a ‘statement of objections’ to the three banks, which all now have a chance to respond.Almunia continued: “Activities in the financial markets, as in others, require transparency and healthy competition. These ingredients are essential in restoring trust in the financial sector, which is a precondition for a successful and sustained recovery.”He said that the Commission is continuing its investigations int the Swiss Franc derivatives market and the Foreign Exchange Spot trading markets.Three former bankers charged in connection with UK lending rate fixing>European banks to be fined up to €1.6 billion each today for rate-fixing>last_img read more

New law gives judges more discretion when setting bail

first_imgFor the second time in six months, there’s a change coming in how defendants awaiting trial must post bail. As of January, many Alaskans charged with misdemeanor offenses didn’t have to post cash bail in order to be released from jail. But due to a new change in state law, this measure is being reversed.Listen nowThe change in January was part of a law aimed at overhauling the state’s criminal justice system. When it came to posting bail, it took discretion away from judges.“People were being held in custody and in jail simply because they were poor,” said Alaska Public Defender Quinlan Steiner of the original bail system. He said judges were making decisions that had little to do with whether or not people were likely to show up for their court hearings.Then a new system was created that gives each defendant a score with two components: how likely they are to violate the conditions of release and to commit new offenses. The score is based on publicly available information, like how many times they’ve failed to appear at hearings or their number of arrests during the past five years. Those with low scores were considered low risk. Until this most recent law was signed, judges were required to release people charged with many misdemeanors without cash bail.But that lack of judicial discretion raised concerns for police, prosecutors and, ultimately, the Legislature. It passed a new law, which Governor Bill Walker signed June 14 that said judges again can decide whether to require cash bail.John Skidmore directs criminal prosecutions for the state of Alaska and says other states have used scores to set bail. But, “what no state did other than the state of Alaska was to make it mandatory that the risk assessment tool absolutely controlled the judge’s discretion.”Skidmore said allowing judges discretion is essential. “There are certain people who pose a greater risk and therefore should be held in jail under greater or harsher conditions until pretrial or until they can appropriately set a reasonable bail.”Skidmore said it’s important to make adjustments over time to what information judges can use to set bail. But he said the decision-making power should remain with the judge.“To tie somebody’s hands, and to say it will always be one way and not the other, is just short-sighted and I don’t think is really focused on reality, which is these decisions have to be made on a case by case basis,” he said. “That’s why we have human beings as judges to make those types of decisions.”Steiner, the public defender, said the courts must ensure that the latest change is applied in an evenhanded way, so that it doesn’t just repeat the mistakes the state made in the past.“The key is that it be applied across the board in a similar manner,” he said.There’s evidence that even small differences in the amount of time defendants spend in jail can increase their chances of committing new offenses, he explained.“With delay and increased incarceration, you sever people from the sort of positive aspects of their life. They may lose their job, they may lose their apartment, they may lose an ability to care for their children,” he said. “That can all occur with very short periods of incarceration and what the data showed was even 24 hours, a 24-hour delay increases the likelihood your rate of recidivism will go up.”Both Steiner and prosecutor Skidmore agree that the state should continue to assess the outcomes from the changes.Correction: An earlier version of this story may have overstated the share of misdemeanors affected by the changes. While the changes affected certain misdemeanors, it’s unclear if they included most misdemeanors.last_img read more

Manned vs Unmanned Space Exploration Part 1

first_img Designed for space travel, new device can collect, analyze liquid as it passes by planets Image: Jack Web Space TelescopeFuture robotic missions promise to deliver even more crucial data to widely divergent fields. TRW is now building Hubble’s successor, the Jack Web Space Telescope (formally the Next Generation Space Telescope). Slated for launch in 2010, it will be placed in L2 orbit – a much better position to study the stars. At L2, or Lagrange Point 2, it needs only one simple shield instead of the complicated cooling system required by Hubble because of its nearness to earth. It will also be out of range of the space shuttle should anything go wrong as did on the Hubble mission.As computers become more capable and reliable, robots of greater complexity will be built to handle even the most challenging assignments. The time for humans to explore space may have come…. And, indeed, may have gone forever. Probably the best example of a possible future for human space flight is the recent Russian policy of taking on paying guests – the first space tourists. Already 2 people have paid the $20 million dollar price tag to visit the International Space Station. So instead of a laboratory for cutting edge science, it may become a multibillion dollar Ramada Inn.What is plainly obvious is robotic space explorers are here to stay. Humans may have to look for different roles to play in space.To be continued… Read Part 2by Chuck Rahls, Copyright 2005 PhysOrg.com This article explores the pros and cons of both types of space exploration and hopefully will spark more discussion of this complex and highly political issue.Unmanned Missions – going where no man has gone before – and maybe never willRobotic space exploration has become the heavy lifter for serious space science. While shuttle launches and the International Space Station get all the media coverage, these small, relatively inexpensive unmanned missions are doing important science in the background.Most scientists agree: both the shuttle (STS – Space Transport System) and the International Space Station are expensive and unproductive means to do space science. NASA has long touted the space station as the perfect platform to study space and the shuttle a perfect vehicle to build it. However, as early as 1990, 13 different science groups rejected the space station citing huge expenses for small gains.Shuttle disasters, first the Challenger followed by Columbia’s catastrophic reentry in February, 2003, have forced NASA to keep mum about crewed space exploration and the International Space Station is on hold. The last important media event promoting manned flight was Senator John Glenn’s ride in 1998 – ostensibly to do research on the effects of spaceflight on the human body, but widely seen by scientists as nothing but a publicity stunt.Since each obiter launch cost $420 million dollars in 1998, it was the world’s most expensive publicity campaign to date. Proponents say the publicity is needed to support space program funding. Scientific groups assert the same money could have paid for two unmanned missions that do new science – not repeat similar experiments already performed by earlier missions.Indeed, why do tests on the effects of zero gravity on humans anyway when they can sit comfortably behind consoles directing robotic probes from Earth? Space is a hostile place for humans. All their needs must be met by bringing a hospitable environment up from a steep gravity well, the cost of which is enormous. The missions must be planned to avoid stressing our fragile organisms. We need food, water and air requiring complicated and heavy equipment. All this machinery needs to be monitored, reducing an astronaut’s available time to carry out experiments. Its shear weight alone reduces substantially the useful payload. Explore further Watching the Apollo landings on the moon as a child I could hardly have imagined I was seeing the end of an era – that of manned exploration of space. Shuttle trips to low earth orbit not withstanding; the human race has stopped reaching for the stars – with manned missions, of course. Now, the new explorers are robots. Will they be the ultimate space traveler? Or will man, with all faults and flexibility, take back this role?center_img The space shuttle is a hopelessly limited vehicle. It’s only capable of reaching low earth orbit. Worse, the space station it services is placed in the same orbit – one that is not ideal for any type of space science. Being so close to the Earth, gravity constantly tugs at the station making it unstable for fabrication of large crystals – part of NASA’s original plans but later nixed by the American Crystallographic Association. To date, more than 20 scientific organizations worldwide have come out against the space station and are recommending the funds be used for more important unmanned missions.NASA has gone so far as to create myths about economic spin-offs from manned spaceflight – the general idea being the enormous expense later results in useful technology that improves our lives. Items like Velcro, Tang and Teflon – popularly believed to have come from the space program or invented by NASA. There is only one problem: they did not.Shuttle launches are expensive: very expensive. Francis Slakey, a PhD physicist who writes for Scientific American about space said, “The shuttle’s cargo bay can carry 23,000 kilos (51,000 lbs) of payload and can return 14,500 kilos back to earth. Suppose that NASA loaded the Shuttle’s cargo bay with confetti to be launched into space. If every kilo of confetti miraculously turned into gold during the return trip, the mission would still lose $270 million.” This was written in 1999 when a shuttle flight cost $420 million.Currently, it’s estimated that just the shuttle program average cost per flight has been about $1.3 billion over lifetime and about $750 million per launch over its most recent five years of operations. This total includes development costs and numerous safety modifications. That means each shuttle launch could pay for 2 to 3 unmanned missions.While recent failures have more than quadrupled success rates for unmanned missions, they still have managed to keep space programs alive – not just for the US, but Russia, Japan and China as well.Mars Pathfinder and Mar Exploration Rovers have succeeded beyond the expectations of their designers and continue to deliver important data to earthbound scientists.When the successful Deep Impact mission smashed into comet Temple 1 in July, 2005 it released a cloud of debris that may help understand comet formation and composition.

Sony announces WhiteMagic new LCD screen that uses half the power

first_img © 2011 PhysOrg.com For the most part, most LCD displays use just three backlit pixels – Red, Green and Blue (RGB) to create one dot of color on the screen; the various colors are produced by filtering the light that comes from behind each of the three pixels to varying degrees, creating a mix. With this new panel, however, Sony has introduced a fourth pixel, which is pure white, and serves to double the brightness of each dot, not by increasing the power of the backlighting, which would necessitate the use of more battery power, but by simply allowing more viewable white light to pass through the White pixel which when combined with the filtered Red, Green or Blue pixels, results in twice as much light passing through each dot on the panel, resulting in a brighter image overall.Previous attempts to do the same thing resulted in the Red, Green and Blue pixels being overpowered by the White pixel with a resultant washed out look (less contrast) on the panel. Sony has solved that problem by developing an algorithm, which runs in a special chip, that it says allows for images as sharp and clear as current RGB displays.The display, which due to the extra pixel in each dot means 1/3 more pixels in total (640*480*4=1.2 million of them) are used, comes in two modes; standard mode is where the panel dims the backlighting to reduce battery power requirements by half, producing an image that is approximately the same brightness as current displays. Outside mode is where the backlighting is returned to “normal” producing an image that is twice as bright as regular LCD displays.Devices with such a panel could help users with the familiar problem of having difficulty seeing what is on their phone or camera screen when outside in the sun. Conversely, by dimming the backlighting when indoors, the panel should greatly extend battery life. Sony says the new panel should be ready for shipment by October, possibly in time for camera or phone makers to add the new panel to their wares in time for Christmas. (PhysOrg.com) — Sony has announced via its webpage the development of a new type of LCD display that uses either half as much power as current same-size LCD displays, or the same amount of power, but doubles the brightness. Called WhiteMagic, the new LCD screen, currently just 3 inches diagonally, achieves these results by employing a third, white pixel to create images on a screen.

Sweet honey wine

first_imgCentro de Investigaciones Apícolas Tropicales (CINAT): http://www.cinat.una.ac.cr/Costa Rica Meadery’s website in progress: http://www.beecotours.com/ Contact info  Keeping bees and making mead isn’t just the couple’s latest passion; it’s also their new business. And they’re in good company as other handcrafted libations gain popularity in Costa Rica. Wine culture is growing, with a greater selection of imports every year and two schools in San José offering sommelier classes. Craft beer brewing is also on the upswing. In July 2011, a handful of microbreweries and a store that sells beer-making equipment banded together to form Costa Rica’s first craft brewing association.Wine culture and craft brewing have been booming in North American and Europe for a while now, but international movements tend to arrive a little later in Costa Rica. The appetite for organic food, locally produced fare and a sort of backyard DIY ethic also hit later here than in places like the U.S. But Costa Rica, with its long growing season and mild climate, turns out to be particularly well suited to such efforts.Year-round nectarBeekeeping in the tropics is different as well. In cold climates, bees visit flowers and make honey during just a certain portion of the year, and the purpose of honey is to feed the hive during winter, when flowers aren’t blooming and little or no nectar is available for harvest. In warm climates, though, bees can collect nectar and produce honey just about year-round, so they don’t need to save honey (or have sugar provided by the beekeeper) for the long, cold winter.Michael and Ale project that each of their hives will produce an average of 30 kilos of honey per year. “We’ve done the math,” says Michael. “With 20 hives we can make about two thousand bottles of wine per year.” They may also buy honey from other beekeepers to augment that number and to experiment with different flavor profiles.Mead tastes of the flowers the bees have tapped for the honey. Coffee flower honey, for instance, produces a brightly flavored mead with mild stimulant properties, while honey from tropical flowers like maracuya (passion fruit) creates mead with a heady fruitiness. Michael explains it in terms of terroir, the French term often associated with wine that can also be applied to any agricultural product; it refers to how the soil and weather of a particular place interacts with the plant’s genetics and is expressed in everything from wine to coffee to chocolate to honey.“The U.S. is so big, they have lots of single-source honeys, whether it’s orange blossom, clover or honey from the tupelo flower in Florida and Georgia. You also get multi-floral honeys like the wildflower honey you see on supermarket shelves. But in Costa Rica, it’s so small and everything’s so diverse and dense, you can’t get a honey that’s just, for example, from mango flowers. The bees travel in a five-mile circumference, they forage.” And in a place as wildly diverse as Costa Rica, the bees encounter many different kinds of flowers. The only single-varietal honey in Costa Rica is from the coffee flower, since this country has so many coffee fields.Taking care of business“It will probably take three years before we make money,” says Michael. Meanwhile, they’re investing in equipment and filing all the paperwork needed to do business in Costa Rica. They’ve got plans for a sparkling mead for weddings; honey wine used to be the traditional drink for both weddings and to keep bride and groom happy during the aptly named honeymoon. They’ll sell their honey and their mead at farmer’s markets, and hope to have a tasting room at nearby Ark Herb Farm, where they keep their bees. Ale also makes goat cheese; Michael says that a little honey drizzled on goat cheese goes remarkably well with a glass of mead.The couple is also launching BeeCo Tours – a play on Ecotours – introducing visitors to that aspect of Costa Rica. Before getting their own hives, Michael and Ale took courses at the local university, visited apiaries all over the country and even attended international beekeeping conferences. Speaking from experience, Michael points out that “there’s a niche group of people who would like to travel to Costa Rica and are beekeepers, who wouldn’t mind doing a day or two of activities related to beekeeping. “There are regional beekeeping associations,” he points out. “Like for Nicoya, Atenas or Jicaral. There are also women’s beekeeping associations” in Costa Rica.How it all startedWhen the couple met back in 1995, neither had bees on the brain. Michael was teaching English at the Costa Rican-North American Culture Center in San Jose; Alejandra was studied English there. “She wasn’t my student,” Michael clarifies with a smile. But the two fell in love, and when Michael had to return to Champagne, Illinois, to finish his ESL degree, Ale went with him.“We arrived in Illinois on a cold, dreary, January day,” Michael recalls, “It was the first time Ale had experienced sub-zero temperatures.” For someone who’d grown up in sunny Costa Rica, it was quite a shock. But Ale adjusted quickly, enrolling in school, earning an engineering degree, and landing a good job with Caterpillar Industries.

Photo: Erin Van Rheenencenter_img “Then we had Sofia,” says Michael. “She rocked our world, in a good way.”“We started re-evaluating,” says Ale.After 15 years in the U.S., the couple and their toddler returned to Costa Rica in March 2011, excited to get back to Ale’s homeland and hoping to make a living in something related to sustainable agriculture and organic farms. In the U.S., they’d seen how Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) worked to bring fresh produce to the cities, and how Community Supported Kitchens (CSK) transformed that produce into healthy meals.Their first business idea was a CSK adapted to Costa Rica. They would prepare and deliver gourmet organic meals to Central Valley expats and wealthy Ticos. But somewhere along the way that plan took a hairpin turn.“We decided we hadn’t come back to Costa Rica to spend hours every day in the car,” says Michael. “Also, there was an infrastructure problem: how to get past the gates in gated communities. And there are a lot of expats on fixed incomes, looking to make their colones stretch.”They’d had an interest in beekeeping when they lived in Champagne, but city ordinances prevented them from keeping bees. Once back in Costa Rica, the couple enrolled at the National University’s (UNA) Centro de Investigaciones Apícolas Tropicales (CINAT), the Center for the Study of Tropical Bees, founded in 1988. The couple took a beekeeping course that CINAT offers every fall. “There were about 30 students, mostly Ticos,” says Ale. “The course culminated in visits to local hives,” which they documented in videos now posted on YouTube under Michael’s name. Then they enrolled in a honey winemaking course. “There were 20 or so students, “ says Michael.  “All were beekeepers with between 20 and 200 hives. Some were at the hobby level; some were serious commercial beekeepers, looking for this value-added option. You struggle to make a living as a beekeeper, like any agricultural or farm-related business. We met four times over two months; we basically made mead, went through all the steps. We were the only expats in the class, unless you count students from Mexico and Nicaragua who were in the masters program. The class was in Spanish, and it cost maybe $40 per person.”Soon thereafter, Costa Rica Meadery was born. Michael and Ale’s bees are now buzzing away, their distillery tanks are full, and they’re busy designing labels for their “hidromiel seco” (dry mead). Keep a look out at farmer’s markets and hotels and weddings for a sweet new taste of the oldest alcoholic beverage known to humankind. By Erin Van Rheenen | Special to The Tico TimesMichael Lindeman and Alejandra Arraya sit on their front porch in Alajuela, Costa Rica, singing the praises of honey wine. Their own wine, to be exact, made with honey from their very own bees. Michael’s blue eyes flash with enthusiasm; Ale smiles as she folds her hands across her very pregnant belly. Both seem happy but still a little bemused that after 15 years working demanding jobs in the U.S. that had nothing to do with bees, they’re back in Costa Rica, the proud owners of 20 beehives and a spare bedroom full of fermenting tanks, bottles and a brand new corker.“The old one was like the Pinto or Edsel of corkers,” says Michael. “Our new one isn’t quite a Rolls Royce, but it’s a very nice model.”Though this is a new venture for Michael and Ale, mead itself is the oldest alcoholic beverage known to humankind. All you need is water, honey and yeast. “So let’s say there’s a hive in the hollow of a tree,” Michael says. “Rain blows in, and so does a bit of wild yeast floating around. It all ferments, some caveman dips his hand in and voila:  mead.” No related posts.last_img read more

Policeshooting drama brings young actress into sp

first_imgPolice-shooting drama brings young actress into spotlight by Lynn Elber, The Associated Press Posted Apr 25, 2019 12:53 pm PDT This image released by CBS shows Aliyah Royale as Jira Calder-Brennan, center, in a scene from the limited series “The Red Line,” which debuts April 28 on CBS. (Parrish Lewis/CBS via AP) AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email LOS ANGELES — Whatever the challenges, Royale said she felt compelled to be part of “The Red Line,” which details the devastating effect an African-American doctor’s killing has on his husband, played by Noah Wyle of “ER” and “The Librarians” fame, their adopted daughter Jira (Royale) and the white officer (Noel Fisher) responsible.The eight-episode limited series debuting at 8 p.m. EDT Sunday also stars Emayatzy Corinealdi and is from executive producers Ava DuVernay (“Selma,” Queen Sugar”) and Greg Berlanti (“Everwood,” ”Political Animals”). Also notable: it’s on CBS, and is among the steps it’s taking toward inclusiveness after prolonged criticism for its predominantly white prime-time lineup.To Royale, the story “felt like it was something that hadn’t been done before and really should be.” While Wyle’s Daniel struggles with depression and Fisher’s Paul with guilt, teenager Jira is unmoored, her sheltered life in a loving Chicago home uprooted.“You have a parent taken away from you who was a part of your daily life, someone whose face you’re used to seeing every morning and every night. It makes it even worse when it was for reasons that could have absolutely been prevented,” Royale said. “And that reason opens up a new world of racial problems that Jira genuinely didn’t know existed.”The actress, whose credits mostly include short films, earned the role of Jira after an intense search, said Caitlin Parrish, who with Sarah Schechter wrote the play that became the basis of “The Red Line.” Both are executive producers for the series.“We weren’t just looking for someone good, we were looking for someone special. And when Aliyah walked in, we knew she was unlike anyone we’d seen,” Parrish said. “She was one of the less experienced young women we read, but she had an immediate connection to the material and a depth of feeling that staggered us. And after her very emotional audition, she showed us her true personality by saying, ‘By the way, I’m fine! I promise!’”The actress with the charmingly heart-shaped face is eager to discuss the project and her road to what could be a breakout role, her attitude lacking the guarded edge that years of celebrity can confer. A self-described “military brat,” she says her experiences shaped her early and inspired her to move to Los Angeles as a youngster, her mother in tow, to pursue a screen career.Royale grew up in her own sort of “bubble,” she said, living on Air Force bases as the Maryland-born daughter of an officer whose career sent the family pingponging from California to Kentucky to Michigan. While her father was one of the few black men of his rank, Royale said she felt insulated and safe in the military environment — but recalls candid discussions inside the house about race.“For me, being young and black in America, I feel like there’s sort of a duty to be educated on being a person of colour and how things may be different for you in life,” she said.Despite the disruption of relocating cities and schools, Royale says she was an honours student and, in high school, took concurrent classes at a community college. And it turned out being the new kid in class had its own payoff.“I was in a completely different environment, and it really shaped how I feel connected to so many different types of people and how it changes the way you view friendships,” she said. “I think it’s what helps me be able to connect and be vulnerable to people” as an actress.She also delighted in role playing, another boon to her future career.“Every time I moved I felt like it was my chance to revamp my image, which is such a weird thing to think in third grade. It was like, ‘OK, now I’m going to become a whole different person.’ And I really did,” she said. Royale jumped from being an “art kid” who loved painting to one who focused on writing — she revised “Romeo and Juliet” because she didn’t like the ending — to a potential future scientist.A love of learning was the connecting thread, with her ultimate goal to attend England’s University of Oxford. The acting bug bit when she realized the craft allowed her to be her most vulnerable and “connect most with people.”“So my priority is my work now,” said Royale, along with her “amazing” and supportive mother, Tanya. And there’s a shout-out as well for her toy poodle, Ares-Sebastian, whom Royale likened online to a banana nut muffin. He was a regular on “The Red Line” set, sitting by quietly when the director called out “action.”“He knows when mommy’s got to go to work,” Royale said.___Lynn Elber can be reached at lelber@ap.org and on Twitter at http://twitter.com/lynnelber.Lynn Elber, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Our View Interpretation of statistics shows two sides of the austerity coin

first_imgStatistical data is subject to many interpretations. An example was given by the way two newspapers, sitting on opposite sides of the political fence, interpreted the survey, conducted by the state’s statistics service, which showed that household spending was down by 19 per cent in 2015-2016, compared with 2009. Specifically, household expenditure, which was €38,547 in 2009 fell significantly to €31,206 in the period from 2015-2016.The Akel newspaper, Haravghi, which has been critical of the government’s so-called, neo-liberal economic policies, ran the story under the headline: “Households on the brink of collapse, cutting (spending) on everything to survive.” Pro-government, Alithia’s headline, regarding the same survey, said “We cut waste by 19%”, reporting that ‘the economic crisis brought good housekeeping.’ Haravghi, on the other hand, concluded that households were ‘cutting spending on daily needs in order to survive’.Both papers were correct to an extent, even though Haravghi showed a bigger inclination for sweeping generalisation. That living standards have fallen since 2009 is indisputable, but are households on the brink of collapse or merely more prudent in their spending? Some households with an income below the national average may have had difficulty making ends meet, but others may have indeed stopped wasting money.Statistics offer no context, which is why it is so easy to interpret them as you please. In 2009, there was a property bubble and easy credit. High living standards were funded by bank credit, many households living beyond their means. Cyprus has the highest private debt in the EU.In 2012 the economy went into recession, the banks were in big trouble, wages entered a downward spiral and the property bubble burst. It was inevitable that household spending would fall. The distortion in the market, caused by easy credit and the property bubble, was corrected and the disposable income of households decreased. No government could have stopped the market adjustment, as Akel was implying.People adapt to changing economic conditions, by changing their spending habits. The biggest spending cuts by households were on leisure (34.1%), clothing and footwear (31.4%) and transport (30%). In other words, people went out less, bought fewer clothes and went for fewer drives in the car. Life may have been a little less comfortable for families in the last few years, but it was not a battle for survival, as Haravghi suggested. In fact, household spending on food and drink (non-alcoholic) remained the same.In other words, while households, on average, had to survive on a smaller income because of the recession, thingsYou May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
