How To Work From Home

first_imgA lot of people now have jobs where they are not required to come into an office. These people will say that they “work from home.” Most people who work from home don’t “work” while they are home. It’s not easy to do.Eliminate DistractionsTo “work from home” you are going to need to eliminate distractions. For many people, this takes an extraordinary amount of discipline.First you are going to need a door that closes. If you have a spouse, children, pets, a mail person, or a UPS delivery person, you are going to be consistently interrupted. You’re going to have to make arrangements with your family so that they know when you are working. You are going to help not being interrupted.Second, and this one isn’t easy, you are going to have to close your browser. Listen, you are not going to “work” with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, ESPN, or US Weekly open. The Internet provides too many distractions.And then there is email. You’re going to have to close your email, too.You are going to have to develop the discipline to isolate yourself and work.A “Must Complete” Agenda For the DayWhen you are responsible for directing your own work, you need a “must complete” agenda for each day.You cannot be productive working from home if you are reactive. If you live in your inbox, waiting for interruptions that you can respond to, you will never be successful working from home. Instead, you need an agenda of three or four things that absolutely must get done come hell or high water.Your “must complete” agenda cannot be made up of things that you “should do” or that would be “nice to do if I have time.” If you work from home, the items on this agenda must be completed during the time you are working. If you are not completing these tasks, then you are not actually “working” from home.Staying ConnectedOne of the challenges that people have working from home is that they are so disconnected from their employer that it is difficult to be effective.If you work from home, you are not involved in the regular day-to-day conversations that occur in most workplaces. You don’t have the pop-up conversations that happen when you bump into your peers in the halls. You don’t capture a lot of the insights that would allow you to do your job better because you’re not there. You have to work hard to stay connected.You have to work hard to over-communicate what you are doing, how you are doing, and where you need help. You need to arrange conversations with your peers and with people in different departments so that you can exchange ideas, get updates about what’s going on, and share updates on how you are doing.When you can, you need to get face-to-face with the people you work with. Getting to know the people you work with personally allows you to do better work together. You know each other. You trust each other. And you have enough communication that you know how to act when you can’t communicate with each other.Stay connected virtually. And when you can make it into an office.It isn’t easy to “work” from home. But developing the discipline to eliminate distractions, complete the three or four “musts” on your task list each day, and working hard to communicate as if you were working at an office will make you more effective working from home.last_img read more

Mouse Impervious to Scorpion’s Sting

first_imgWho would win in a fight: a bark scorpion or a grasshopper mouse? It seems like an easy call. The bark scorpion (Centruroides sculpturatus) delivers one of the most painful stings in the animal kingdom—human victims have compared the experience to being branded. The 25-gram grasshopper mouse (Onychomys torridus) is, well, a mouse. But as you can see in the video above, grasshopper mice routinely kill and eat bark scorpions, blissfully munching away even as their prey sting them repeatedly (and sometimes right in the face). Now, scientists have discovered why the grasshopper mice don’t react to bark scorpion stings: They simply don’t feel them.Evolutionary neurobiologist Ashlee Rowe of Michigan State University in East Lansing has been studying the grasshopper mice’s apparent superpower since she was in graduate school. For the new study, she milked venom from nearly 500 bark scorpions and started experimenting. When she injected the venom into the hind paws of regular laboratory mice, the mice furiously licked the site for several minutes. But when she injected the same venom into grasshopper mice, they licked their paws for just a few seconds and then went about their business, apparently unfazed. In fact, the grasshopper mice appeared to be more irritated by injections of the saline solution Rowe used as a control.Rowe knew that grasshopper mice weren’t entirely impervious to pain—they reacted to injections of other painful chemicals such as formalin, just not the bark scorpion venom. To find out what was going on, she and her team decided to determine how the venom affects the grasshopper mouse’s nervous system, in particular the parts responsible for sensing pain.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Luckily for Rowe’s team, feeling pain involves just a few of the body’s many possible chemical channels, so they were able to quickly zero in on two of them: Nav1.7 and Nav1.8, which work by moving sodium ions in and out of cells. In mammals, Nav1.7 initiates a pain signal, while Nav1.8 transmits that signal to the brain. Both channels need to be activated for something to hurt.In a petri dish, Rowe and colleagues could tell that the bark scorpion venom works by targeting Nav1.7 in cells from lab mice and grasshopper mice. But in grasshopper mice, Nav1.8 comes to the rescue with a neat trick: It shuts down in the presence of bark scorpion venom. “The [pain] signal might get generated by sodium channel 1.7, but it does not get sent to the brain by 1.8,” Rowe says. Her team reports its results online today in Science.“They’ve actually shown the molecular basis by which an animal has evolved [pain] resistance, and that’s very cool,” says Glenn King, a structural biologist at the University of Queensland in Australia who was not involved in the research. Pain resistance, even to specific stimuli like scorpion venom, is an unusual adaptation, Rowe says. Typically, pain “prompts us to take care of ourselves,” she says, alerting us to dangerous situations, like a nearby flame or a cut that could become infected, and teaching us to avoid them in the future. She speculates that grasshopper mice evolved their resistance to bark scorpion venom so that they could eat the arthropods, which are abundant in the Arizona desert where the mice live. Bark scorpions “represent a really valuable food resource” in an ecosystem where other prey is scarce, she says.Although grasshopper mice can usually feel other kinds of pain, Rowe observed that they seem to be temporarily insensitive to other painful stimuli after a dose of bark scorpion venom shuts down their Nav1.8 channels. She hopes this trick might be useful for engineering a new class of painkillers for humans. “The ideal painkiller is one that you take and your pain goes away but nothing else is affected,” says Ewan Smith, a neuroscientist at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom who was not involved in the current research. Because Nav1.7 and Nav1.8’s only jobs are to trigger pain, he says, a drug that targeted one or both of them as well as bark scorpion venom does would inhibit pain but let you keep other types of sensations (no more numb faces after a visit to the dentist). What’s more, it would have no side effects or risk of addiction because it would affect the pain pathways and nothing else, Smith says. Now that’s a superpower worth writing home about.*Correction, 28 October, 3:50 p.m.: Ashlee Rowe is now at Michigan State University, not the University of Texas, Austin, as was originally reported.last_img read more

Pirates sail to win No. 14

first_imgBrace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC The clash against Emilio Aguinaldo College on Tuesday was another showcase of the Pirates’ poise and composure, as they repaid the trust shown by their coach.Facing a late uprising from the Generals, the Pirates wiggled themselves out of trouble with another strong finish for an 86-74 victory that extended their unbeaten start to 14 games at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutWhile the Generals suffered a blow in their hopes of nailing a Final Four berth, the San Sebastian Stags enhanced their bid for a postseason spot with a 95-64 drubbing of a surprisingly listless Letran squad in the first game.“You have to trust them that if they made a mistake, they have to figure it out on their own,” said Robinson. “There will come a time when I don’t need to coach them anymore. These moments are helping them grow.” Lyceum coach Topex Robinson attributes the Pirates’ success in NCAA Season 93 to the freedom he gives his players at crucial moments in the game.ADVERTISEMENT Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients  LATEST STORIES MOST READ BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversarycenter_img Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa The stretch that Robinson was referring to came with under four minutes remaining with the Pirates protecting a 78-72 lead and momentum on the Generals’ side after a triple from Jerome Garcia.Twins Jaycee and JV Marcelino combined to score the next eight points, while the Pirates put the clamps on the Generals’ shooters to put the game away.Four wins away from a season sweep that will give them a thrice-to-beat bonus in the finals, Robinson knows the Pirates can’t afford to get ahead of themselves.“It’s not a guarantee that you’re going to win a championship,” said Robinson. “There are a lot of flaws that we need to work on and we have to keep on improving.”The Stags, meanwhile, nailed 16 triples on their way to a seventh win in 13 games, tying Jose Rizal U at third spot, while sending the Knights to fifth with a 7-7 card.ADVERTISEMENT PSC seeks audit of past transactions Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles02:11’Not just basketball’: Circumcisions, pageants at Philippine courts00:50Trending Articles01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Rohit Sharma overtakes Martin Guptill to become highest run-scorer in T20Is

first_img2nd T20I, Brief Scores: India 79/1 in 9.2 overs, need 80 off 64 balls vs New Zealand (158/8) . Full ScorecardRohit Sharma became the highest run-scorer in T20 Internationals when he overtook Pakistan’s Shoaib Malik and New Zealand’s Martin Guptill during India’s second match against New Zealand in Auckland. Rohit also hit his 100th six in T20 Internationals during his innings on Friday.Rohit Sharma, the only man with 4 hundreds in T20 Internationals and 3 ODI double hundreds, was dismissed for 1 in Wellington as India failed to chase down 220 in the first T20 International against New Zealand. However, Rohit, standing in for Virat Kohli as India captain, came out all guns blazing in Auckland in a chase of 159.Rohit needed 35 runs to go past Guptill at the start of the innings. Having made his T20I debut in 2007, Rohit Sharma has played 92 matches in the shortest format for India with a highest score of 118.Rohit Sharma fell to Ish Sodhi for a 29-ball 50 but not before he had set India on the path to victory.

Fantasy: PL stars headed to the World Cup

first_imgGoal-Fantasy-Football-registertowin Gaming Fantasy Football: Premier League stars headed to the World Cup Kevin DeVries Fantasy Football Writer Last updated 1 year ago 17:16 5/29/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Kyle Walker England Getty Gaming World Cup England v Belgium Denmark v France Colombia v Japan Colombia Japan England Belgium Denmark France Romelu Lukaku Cristiano Ronaldo Robert Lewandowski Our Fantasy writer looks at Premier League players from Colombia, England, Denmark, and Belgium who dominated during qualifying and could do in Russia With Real Madrid winning the Champions League on Saturday, the book closed on the 2017/18 Fantasy season. We certainly hope you enjoyed playing the Goal Premier League, Champions League, and European Super League games. Now though, it’s time to focus on the next competition which is right around the corner.Goal’s World Cup Fantasy Football game is already out and it’s time to start looking at the best players and biggest stars that will be competing in Russia this summer. With prizes worth £10,000 to be won it’s well worth getting involved via the mobile apps (both Android or Apple) or on desktop.When constructing your squad, it’s easy to select players based on club performance or allegiance, but that’s often not the best metric to predict how players will perform at the World Cup. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Instead, let’s focus on how some of the Premier League’s best performed with their national teams during qualifiers and what it means going forward.David OspinaGK: David Ospina – Colombia, £5.8mThe Arsenal man sat behind Petr Cech for most of the Premier League season but was decent in Fantasy when he did start, averaging just under five points per match. While minutes were not easy to come by in North London, Ospina could always rely on game time with the national team for whom he started all 18 qualification matches.En route to Russia, Ospina notched seven clean sheets and 46 saves, both of which put him top five among eligible goalkeepers. The South American outfit have a very tough task ahead of themselves in the tournament proper though as two nations in their group (Japan and Poland) both finished with top 10 attacks in qualifying. With a £5.8m price tag, Ospina is certainly ownable but it may be wise to look to an easier group for your goalkeeper.Gareth Southgate Kyle Walker EnglandDEF: Kyle Walker – England, £6.2mWalker showing up on this list should be of little surprise to players of our Premier League Fantasy game, seeing as he finished in the top five at his position. Those points largely came from his 15 clean sheets and 6 assists, both also top five rankings among defenders.His international performances were just as fantastic helping England keep clean sheets in seven of his nine starts. The Manchester City man picked up two assists as well which cemented his qualifying campaign as the best among Premier League defenders. As for the pending trip to Russia, Walker looks a fantastic own with the match against Belgium the only difficult one for him on paper as far as the intial stages are concerned.Christian Eriksen, DenmarkMID: Christian Eriksen – Denmark, £7.2mWe all know that Salah dominated everything domestically, but it was Christian Eriksen who did likewise for the European qualifying rounds. The Tottenham talisman scored a ridiculous 11 times in just 12 matches propelling Denmark back to the World Cup after they had missed the last edition in 2014.That goal tally was the most at his position and was only bettered by Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski albeit Eriksen did have an extra two games via the play-off round. Those goals were no fluke either as the Dane also notched a career high in scoring for Spurs as well (11), indicating that this is natural development. With an easy start to group stages, and his new found shooting boots, he is a must own in the Goal World Cup Fantasy game .Romelu LukakuBelgiumFOR: Romelu Lukaku – Belgium, £7.9mSome may view Lukaku’s debut season at Manchester United as a bit of a disappointment as his 16 goals were his lowest tally over the last three years. That placed the Belgian outside the top five in scoring for the first time since 2014/15. Fortunately, those trends did not impact his performances with Belgium as he averaged over a goal and a half per game during qualifying.He found the net an impressive 11 times, four more than the next best Premier League forward, Gabriel Jesus. Overall, Lukaku finished World Cup qualifying with the third most goals, yet sits 10th in price in his own position. Considering that, and his early start to group action, the only reason not to own Lukaku is if you believe there are three better value plays in the forward category.last_img read more

Davie Blazes Trail in LNGFueled Ferry Building

first_imgCanadian shipbuilder Davie has delivered the first LNG-powered ice-class ferry to be built in North America, M/V Armand Imbeau II. The shipbuilder said that the vessel, which can be powered entirely by LNG, passed all testing with flying colours.“It would have been easy to build a normal, diesel-powered ferry but instead Québec decided to pave the way in setting a new environmental standard for the entire continent. We inherited this project when we acquired the shipyard in 2012. With the project already at a mature concept stage when we arrived, we received a specification from the client of more than four hundred pages long and we immediately set to work on solving the puzzle that had been created,” James Davies, President of Davie said.Alex Vicefield, CEO of Inocea, said that they will now be looking at how LNG can power other classes of icebreakers – ships which operate in some of the most sensitive ecosystems on the planet.“For ferries, we also want to explore the potential for installing fully electrical propulsion systems,” Vicefield added.“In Québec, where we have a surplus of hydroelectric power and with recent advances in ‘wireless’ or induction charging and battery technology, this would make a lot of sense. Being the first mover in any new technology is never going to be cheap, but the potential that these new environmentally-friendly technologies have is enormous.”“From the outside, this ship looks like any other ferry but from the inside, it is of a similar level of complexity to a space shuttle. It is a densely packed, highly integrated and complex product. This ferry has more systems and automation onboard than an offshore drilling platform or a modern warship,” Ron Pearson, Davie’s VP of engineering added.“It is truly a technological marvel – the cryogenic processes involved in managing this highly volatile fuel, while also creating a vessel which is safe to carry passengers, has been a huge challenge. Integrating all of these systems into such a confined space was even more challenging and one we are very proud to have overcome.”Image Courtesy: Davielast_img read more

GST Councillike institutions needed to promote healthcare rural development

first_imgNew Delhi: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley Wednesday made a case for setting up GST Council-like federal institutions to promote healthcare, rural development and agriculture sectors by optimally utilising resources of the centre and states.The successful experiment of GST Council, which is a constitutional body for making recommendations to the union and state governments on issues related to goods and service tax, needs to be replicated in other areas. He said agriculture, rural development and healthcare is one area where the central government spends a lot of money on supporting farmers, creating infrastructure and building health centres for poor population. Also, the state governments are spending money on these sectors. He said there is a need for utilising the resources in an optimal manner by enhancing coordination between the centre and state governments for essential developmental activities. “I think a coordination body on a non-statutory basis like the GST Council, as a federal institution can do that job (coordination),” Jaitley said in a video message on Twitter. “I strongly believe federal institutions after the successful implementation of the GST Council must be experimented in the areas of rural development, agriculture and healthcare. This will help the poorest section of population. We stand as a political party also committed to enforce this,” the minister said. He said the GST Council is an “excellent federal institution”, which in its 34 meetings has decided thousands of issues with consensus leading to benefits to traders and people and developing ‘New India’. The GST Council, chaired by the union finance minister, comprises finance ministers of all states.last_img read more

Alberta wont support Ottawas climate change plans without a pipeline Notley

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley takes part in a forum at the Global Progress conference Thursday, September 15, 2016 in Montreal. Notley says her province will not support Ottawa’s climate change plan unless the federal government makes progress on new oil pipelines to Canada’s coasts. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Paul Chiasson Alberta won’t support Ottawa’s climate change plans without a pipeline: Notley EDMONTON – Alberta Premier Rachel Notley drew a line in the oilsands Monday when she said she will not support Ottawa’s climate change plan unless the federal government makes progress on new oil pipelines to Canada’s coasts.“An ambitious public policy move like this, even one as worthwhile as this, needs to be built on top of a fundamentally healthy economic foundation,” Notley said at an event at city hall.“And a new pipeline is what will give that, not only to Alberta, but to all of Canada.”Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a national floor price on carbon as he kicked off debate in the House of Commons over whether Canada should ratify the Paris accord on climate change.The federal plan calls for a $10-per-tonne price on carbon starting in 2018. That would rise by $10 per tonne each year until reaching $50 per tonne in 2022.It would be imposed on provinces that don’t at least match the tax with direct pricing or through a cap-and-trade mechanism. All revenue would go to the province or jurisdiction where it was raised.Notley’s NDP is bringing in its own broad-based carbon tax based on the equivalent of $20 per tonne of carbon emissions on Jan. 1. That is to rise to $30 a tonne in 2018.The tax will raise the price of heating bills and gas at the pumps, but middle- and lower-income Albertans will see some or all of that cost rebated.Notley said that to ask Albertans to pay even more than the $30-per-tonne level — and to help the rest of Canada — the federal government needs to couple its climate plan with action on energy infrastructure such as a pipeline.“Albertans, as you know, have contributed to Canada’s prosperity for many, many years,” she said. “For us to continue doing that, in order for us to come back from the oil-price crash that we’re all experiencing, we need Canada to have our backs.”Notley had not previously tied support for a climate change plan to infrastructure, but did say it was hoped Alberta’s actions would build “social licence” to remove the province’s climate record as an impediment in discussions.Tim McMillan, president of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, said he is pleased that Notley tied in pipeline demands with carbon pricing.“Obviously, we are supportive of anyone who will champion the market access concerns. That’s a priority for CAPP, for our members,” McMillan said.McMillan also said carbon pricing needs to be part of a bigger strategy that includes consideration of the impact on the competitive standing of Canadian companies.Alberta is being hammered by low oil prices that have turned multibillion-dollar budgets just a few years ago to a forecast $10.9-billion deficit this year, and unemployment and office vacancy rates are rising.A pipeline to the coast would allow the province’s oil to fetch a better price on overseas markets.Opposition Wildrose Leader Brian Jean said now is the wrong time for any carbon tax, given Alberta’s economic situation.And, he added, Notley should not be offering any quid pro quo.“Tying a single pipeline approval to (carbon) taxation sets a dangerous precedent. Alberta needs to make it clear to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau this will never be acceptable,” said Jean.“Our province’s economic interests should not be held hostage by politicians in Ottawa.”Rick Fraser, energy critic for the Progressive Conservatives, said he was heartened to see Notley try to get some action on a pipeline. He said Trudeau’s announcement creates more uncertainty as there’s no guarantee the floor price won’t go even higher.“A lot of people are trying to figure out how this is possibly sustainable, politically and economically,” Fraser said.Mike Hudema of Greenpeace Canada said Notley is not showing leadership on climate change.“It’s incredible that the Alberta government would withhold its support for an action to combat climate change until it gets a new pipeline that further accelerates the problem,” said Hudema.“The Alberta government needs to realize that new pipelines aren’t compatible with a climate-safe future.” by Dean Bennett, The Canadian Press Posted Oct 3, 2016 11:37 am MDT Last Updated Oct 4, 2016 at 7:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

But with a combination of talented returning veterans and some strong recruits, the Badgers are off to an impressive start this season. On Wednesday night, Brock improved to a perfect 5-0 by handing the Ryerson Rams their first loss at home since 2014.

Strictly judges say curse is a blessing because it helps kill off

Revel-Horwood said Strictly was like any other working environment. “It’s only because it’s public. If you were at your Christmas party and you snogged the boss, for instance, you’d still have to do the ‘walk of shame’ on the Monday, wouldn’t you? This happens in every walk of life, it’s not only Strictly.” The ‘curse of Strictly’ is actually a blessing because it kills of troubled relationships, according to the show’s judge, Craig Revel-Horwood.The extra-marital fling between Seann Walsh and his professional partner, Katya Jones, has overshadowed the competition this week. Walsh’s girlfriend promptly left him, although Jones’s husband is sticking by her.Revel-Horwood said: “I think of it as a blessing, actually, to be honest. One person is married, the other one had a girlfriend but my point in this entire thing is: if you come on Strictly, sometimes you are in a relationship that is not working anyway.”And people, I have noticed, if they are in love or are married, end up being absolutely faithful to one another because of that love.”You’re up close and personal with that person but there has to be something wrong in your relationship before it all goes wry.”He was appearing on ITV’s The Jonathan Ross Show alongside his fellow Strictly judge, Dame Darcey Bussell, who added: “I danced for over 20 years in the Royal Ballet and I’m still happily married.” Comedian Seann Walsh has insisted he’s “not the person I’m being portrayed as” after being caught kissing his Strictly Come Dancing dance partner Katya JonesCredit:Universal News (Europe) Asked if the decision to keep them on the show was the right one, he replied: “My take was: keep them in the show, make them do the Dance of Shame. It’s really important that if this does happe to you, you face up to it.”Bookmakers have made Walsh and Jones favourites to be voted off on Sunday but the head judge, Shirley Ballas, said: “I would like to think that they judge the dancing and not the relationship or anything else.”Revel-Horwood also revealed that viewers sometimes get so riled by his critiques of the dancers that they take it out on him. “I was doing a show in Newbury and went out to get a sandwich. As I was walking across the square a lady came up to me, about 80 or 85, and said, ‘Are you that Craig Revel-Horwood from the telly?’ I said, ‘Yes,’ and she went, ‘Whack!’ And smacked me across the face. And then she went, ‘Don’t change, darling.'” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings.

Games and boxoffice movies help Sony post surprise profit

first_imgSONY SAID ON Thursday it saw a €194 million first-quarter net profit thanks to brisk sales of its PlayStation 4 console and a weak yen, but said it still expects a full-year loss.The company’s net profit came to 26.8 billion yen (€194 million) for the three months through June, up from 3.1 billion yen a year earlier, with sales rising 5.8 percent to 1.8 trillion yen.The gains were largely driven by “a significant increase in game and network services segment sales, reflecting the contribution of the PlayStation 4… as well as the favourable impact of foreign exchange rates”, Sony said in a statement.A weak yen boosts the profitability of Japanese exporters such as Sony.The consumer electronics giant also said box-office hits, including “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″, boosted results at its movie unit, which includes a Hollywood studio.Sony, which has been undergoing a painful restructuring after years of losses, still expects a net loss of 50 billion yen on sales of 7.8 trillion yen for the fiscal year through March 2015.The firm said it more than doubled operating profit in its television segment thanks to strong sales of flat-screen televisions in Asia and Europe.The news comes despite Japanese manufacturers suffering badly in their TV divisions as razor-thin margins and fierce overseas competition hammers their finances.Sony said its smartphone business saw an operating loss of 2.7 billion yen due to growing marketing costs as the business struggled in Japan, where Apple’s iPhone dominates.Despite the upbeat results, analysts warned that the positive impact of a weak yen was fading, and said Sony along with rivals Panasonic and Sharp must speed up their corporate overhauls.“Japanese electronics makers can’t expect much from the impact of a weak yen for the current fiscal year,” said Yasuo Imanaka, analyst at Rakuten Securities.“Sony is now heavily relying on its entertainment, music and insurance businesses.“They have to speed up the pace of their restructuring, which is crucial for its survival. Otherwise, investors will lose their patience.”Panasonic is due to announce its latest earnings later Thursday.- © AFP, 2014Read: Mario Kart 8 wasn’t enough to save Nintendo from a €72 million loss >Read: You can now find a plug-in point for your electric car “every 60km” >last_img read more

Batmans 10 Greatest Mysteries

first_img This week sees the release of Detective Comics issue #1000, a staggering milestone as DC’s flagship title — and the one they’re named after — reaches the quadruple digits. The issue is a jumbo-sized, 96-page celebration of Batman and his adventures, featuring contributions by Jim Lee, Neal Adams, Kevin Smith, Paul Dini, and a host of other artists and writers.For our money, the Batman stories we like best are the ones where he really leans into his “World’s Greatest Detective” moniker, using brains instead of brawn to figure out puzzling cases. As we get ready for Detective‘s thousandth issue, let’s revisit some of the best Batman mystery storylines.Blood Secrets1989’s Detective Comics Annual has a fascinating story of Bruce Wayne before he donned the cowl, back when he was still learning the skills that would serve him in his never-ending battle against crime. In “Blood Secrets,” a young Bruce meets an elderly detective named Harvey Harris and the duo set out to investigate a string of small-town murders that are eventually tied back to a white supremacist group and a hushed-up interracial child. It’s a taut and clever done-in-one story that puts Wayne’s deductive mind center stage despite having few appearances of his alter ego.The Long HalloweenThe team of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale have an impeccable track record — when they take over a book, you know something special is about to happen. So for 1996’s The Long Halloween, it shouldn’t surprise you that they produced one of Batman’s most enduring modern tales. When a Falcone crime family enforcer is killed on Halloween, it kicks off a year-long saga set early in the Dark Knight’s career. The mysterious killer known as Holiday is picking off the Mob one by one, a month at a time, and Batman struggles to figure out his true identity while contending with both familiar villains and new faces.Night CriesWritten by long-time Bat-editor Archie Goodwin, “Night Cries” is a solid slice of street-level Batman that deserves to be more widely read. When Jim Gordon and Batman work a series of murders, they begin to see a dark correlation between the victims and a group of abused children. Things get even more complicated when the city starts thinking that Batman himself is laying down vigilante justice on the abusers. This is a topic that it’s very easy to get wrong, but Goodwin and artist Scott Hampton nail every note, creating a hidden gem of Bat-history.City Of CrimeWritten by David Lapham, “City Of Crime” — which has been collected into a stand-alone trade paperback — is a great tour through some of Bruce Wayne’s most effective methods of investigation. When a young girl is kidnapped, Batman works his way into a massive conspiracy that runs through Gotham’s halls of power. One of the most compelling aspects of the storyline is when Bruce Wayne goes undercover as a manual laborer in a working-class neighborhood hit hard by crime, showing how Bruce Wayne is a master of both disguise and eliciting information out of the people around him.ShamanRunning through the first five issues of Legends Of The Dark Knight, “Shaman” is a fascinating tale that takes Batman out of his comfort zone in multiple ways as he tries to get to the bottom of a group of cultists of the god Chubala coming to his city for a murder spree. The truth lies in his pre-Batman past, when he took a trip to Alaska to study under one of the world’s best trackers. Dense, involved and dramatic, this is a great example of Batman bringing all of his mental and physical tools to bear against a complex puzzle with some fascinating ethical dimensions.Broken CityThe problem with fighting crime in Gotham is that there are so many nefarious forces maneuvering for control that it’s very easy to get crossed up. As Batman investigates the murder of a woman by Killer Croc, he stumbles upon another tragedy: a child left orphaned by an alleyway shooting much like the one that took the lives of his own parents. Because he’s Batman, he gets obsessed with both, and the denouement of these two plot lines ends up not being what anybody would expect. It’s a fun, fast-paced story that has Batman taxing the limits of his skills.Perpetual MourningFrom the pages of quirky multi-creator series Batman: Black & White, “Perpetual Mourning” by Ted McKeever sees the Dark Knight in the deepest minutiae of the job, conducting an autopsy on a woman killed by a mugger. As he examines her body, cataloging her wounds, he recreates the last moments of her life and discovers the disparate pieces of evidence that he needs to find her identity and hunt down her killer. It’s a short story, but it does one of the best jobs we’ve seen at bringing Batman’s internal process to the surface.Made Of WoodSome of our favorite Batman stories are the ones where characters from the wider DC Universe find their way to Gotham and have to deal with how things are there. Written by Ed Brubaker, the three-part “Made Of Wood” storyline from Detective Comics guest-stars Alan Scott, the Golden Age Green Lantern. Before Bruce Wayne, Scott was Gotham’s protector, but one case that always stymied him was a serial killer who was never caught. Now, 40 years later, Alan comes back to town when a new killer has adopted the old one’s motif for mysterious ends.The Black MirrorThe span of time when Dick Grayson took up the cowl while Bruce Wayne was lost in time (don’t ask) delivered some of Batman’s strongest storytelling in years, and this is a great example. As Dick works to establish himself in Gotham, he comes up against a twisted reflection of himself — James Gordon Jr, the Commissioner’s son who has become a remorseless sociopath. He engineers a massive plan for revenge that has Dick straining every investigative bone in his body, but foresight and reasoning lead him to the solution and James’s eventual capture.GothicA decade or more before DC gave Grant Morrison the reins on the main Bat-franchise, they let him pen a story in Legends of the Dark Knight that would lay the groundwork for lots of his more esoteric theories about Gotham City’s history. “Gothic” introduces a murderer named Mr. Whisper who is targeting the city’s mob bosses. With no other recourse, they turn to Batman for help and the Darknight Detective learns that the culprit is a figure from his own past, as well as the past of the city. It’s a taut and compelling melding of the street-level and the supernatural that still holds up today.Get Detective Comics #1000 (available March 27, 2019) on ComixologyMore on Geek.com:Geek Pick: Comixology Is Still Netflix for Comics‘White’ Graphic Novel Brings Back ‘Black’ Superhero WorldThe History of Ultraviolence in Comic Books Stay on target Marvel Censors Criticism of America From Marvel Comics #1000Can Even Jonathan Hickman Save the X-Men? last_img read more
