But the Congress that convened Tuesday is Republican-controlled and new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said the pipeline bill will be among the first issues voted on.White House press secretary Josh Earnest says he does not expect Obama would sign any Keystone legislation that reaches his desk.The spokesman says there is a “well-established” review process that is being run by the State Department that should not be undermined by legislation.Earnest also says the pipeline’s route through Nebraska also must be resolved. read more

“We have also suffered enormous heartbreak – including unresolved conflicts causing immense suffering throughout the troubled Middle East, South Sudan, the Sahel and beyond,” said Secretary-General Ban in his message on the Day, observed annually on 24 October, the anniversary of the entry into force in 1945 of the UN Charter. He noted further: “Together, we have put in place some solid foundations for shared progress – which we must build on by working even harder to empower women, engage youth and uphold human rights for all.” Mr. Ban said that major progress has been made towards a more sustainable future through the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, as well as in addressing the threat of climate change, through the Paris Agreement, which will enter into force on 4 November, a record entry for any such global accord. “Across that historic threshold lies our best chance for greener, cleaner, low-carbon growth,” he said. The UN chief further expressed that it was an honour to serve the world’s people over the past 10 years and called on everyone to support Secretary-General-designate Antonio Guterres in continuing the Organization’s global mission of peace, sustainable development and human rights. Mr. Ban’s tenure as the UN Secretary-General comes to a close at the end of this year. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (at podium) addresses a ceremony commemorating the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the UN Charter in San Francisco. UN Photo/Mark Garten In a separate statement, the President of the UN General Assembly, Peter Thomson welcomed the focus of the 2016 UN Day on real-world actions for a sustainable future.“I salute the fact that this year’s UN Day will be used to highlight concrete actions that people can take to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals,” said Mr. Thomson in a statement on the occasion. Under his Presidency, a key agenda of the General Assembly’s 71st Session is to achieve momentum in the implementation of the global goals.“[UN Day’s] observation is an annual reminder of the long and often difficult road [UN] Member States have decided to travel together. We are sustained by common aspiration as defined in the Purposes and Principles of the Charter,” he added in the statement.The 24th of October has been celebrated as United Nations Day since 1948. In 1971, the General Assembly recommended that the day be observed by UN Member States as a public holiday. As part of the observance of the Day, UN will highlight concrete actions people can take to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Also, the organization’s Department of Public Information will organize a concert to celebrate and reflect on the work of the UN through the universal language of music.The event, will feature a traditional Korean music orchestra; world-renowned concert pianist and UN Messenger of Peace, Lang Lang; the Harlem Gospel Choir; the Hungarian State Opera with performances by soprano Andrea Rost; and other notable artists. The theme of this year’s UN Day concert is “Freedom First.” read more

As if it cannot get any worse for Penn State, now comes word that the NCAA is poised to level heavy punishment to the Nittany Lions’ football program in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.NCAA president Mark Emmert, during an interview with Tavis Smiley on PBS, said, “I’ve never seen anything as egregious as this in terms of just overall conduct and behavior inside a university and hope never to see it again. What the appropriate penalties are, if there are determinations of violations, we’ll have to decide.”We’ll hold in abeyance all of those decisions until we’ve actually decided what we want to do with the actual charges should there be any. And I don’t want to take anything off the table.”That means the Death Penalty is in play for a program that was led to prominence by the late Joe Paterno. Emmert said he is still waiting for Penn State’s official response to the Freeh report, which, in a nutshell, lambasted the administration and Paterno for covering up Sandusky’s rampant crimes, which led to him being convicted on 45 counts that likely will led to a sentencing of more than 60 years in prison.Still reeling from the content of the Freeh report, Emmert did not dismiss the notion of issuing the so-called “death penalty” against Penn State, asserting that the unprecedented nature of the Sandusky scandal could warrant extreme punishment.“This is completely different than an impermissible benefits scandal like happened at SMU, or anything else we’ve dealt with,” Emmert said. “This is as systemic a cultural problem as it is a football problem. There have been people that said this wasn’t a football scandal.“Well it was more than a football scandal, much more than a football scandal. It was that but much more. And we’ll have to figure out exactly what the right penalties are. I don’t know that past precedent makes particularly good sense in this case, because it’s really an unprecedented problem.”Emmert also said that he expects to hear back from Penn State “within weeks” regarding questions the NCAA has issued about the case, including the issue of institutional control. He consistently has maintained that the NCAA will not determine whether violations occurred until receiving the school’s response.“We’re in active discussions with Penn State right now, and I need to get a response back from them soon, right away,” Emmert said. “And then we’re going to make that determination, and then we’ll see where we go here.” read more

first_imgLes premiers oiseaux ne pouvaient pas battre des ailesGrande-Bretagne – Les premières espèces d’oiseaux n’étaient probablement pas en mesure de battre des ailes à cause de leurs plumes trop fragiles. Les chercheurs pensent que certaines espèces, comme l’Archaeopteryx, qui a vécu il y a 140 millions d’années et est considéré comme le véritable premier oiseau, étaient sans doute incapables de se propulser dans les airs.Plusieurs études de fossiles d’Archaeopteryx, dont les experts pensent qu’il s’agissait d’un dinosaure à ailes et à plumes, montrent que l’espèce possédait des plumes au rachis (axe central de la plume implanté dans la peau, ndlr) plus mince que celles des oiseaux modernes. Une équipe dirigée par Robert Nudds, de l’université de Manchester, a calculé que ces plumes devaient alors être trop faibles pour supporter le battement des ailes, et à peine assez solides pour permettre à ces oiseaux de voleter d’arbre en arbre.Même constat pour le Confuciusornis, un oiseau apparu plus tardivement, il y a 100 millions d’années.”Si Archaeopteryx et Confuciusornis battaient des ailes, ils devaient avoir une structure de plumes fondamentalement différente de celle des oiseaux actuels”, ont conclu les chercheurs dans la revue Science.

first_imgEtats-Unis : du Botox pour traiter l’incontinence urinaireL’agence américaine des médicaments (FDA) a autorisé mercredi la mise sur le marché des injections de Botox pour traiter certaines formes d’incontinence urinaire chez des personnes souffrant de troubles neurologiques.  Si les injections de Botox sont aujourd’hui largement utilisées pour s’attaquer aux rides, c’est une toute autre application que vient d’autoriser l’Agence américaine des médicaments. Mercredi, la Food and Drug Administration a donné le feu vert à la mise sur le marché de ces injections pour traiter certains formes d’incontinence urinaire observées chez des personnes souffrant de troubles neurologiques. “Chez les malades atteints d’une blessure à la moelle épinière ou souffrant de la sclérose en plaques, la vessie est hyperactive”, explique ainsi la FDA dans un communiqué cité par l’AFP. À lire aussiDu nouveau dans la recherche pour les 8 millions de migraineux en FranceOr, le Botox a un effet paralysant sur les nerfs. Injecté dans la vessie, il permet alors de décontracter les muscles, d’accroitre la capacité à retenir l’urine et donc de réduire l’incontinence, selon la FDA. “L’incontinence urinaire liée à des maladies neurologiques peut être difficile à contrôler. Le Botox offre un autre choix de traitement à ces malades”, a indiqué le docteur George Benson, directeur adjoint de la division des traitements urologiques à la FDA. Lors des deux essais cliniques réalisés sur 691 patients au total, le procédé s’est révélé tout à fait concluant et moins douloureux que les traitements actuels. Jusqu’à présent, ceux-ci consistaient à détendre la vessie et à utiliser un cathéter pour la vider régulièrement. Le Botox fournit donc un moyen de traiter l’incontinence urinaire en supprimant cette nécessité de vider la vessie. Toutefois, le traitement présente quelques effets secondaires et notamment une infection du conduit urinaire ainsi qu’une rétention d’urine, précise la FDA. Il y a peu, l’Agence américaine des médicaments a également autorisé l’utilisation du Botox dans le traitement des migraines chroniques et d’une transpiration excessive sous les aisselles.Le 25 août 2011 à 20:01 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

The group Dunleavy for Alaska, the American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska and Eric Seibles sued over state enforcement of a ban on outdoor advertising in July. A judge issued a temporary restraining order on Monday allowing some political signs. (Photo by Andrew Kitchenman/KTOO)A judge’s ruling yesterday resolves a lawsuit about political signs along Alaska highways.Some temporary political signs will still be allowed. But the state will be able to enforce its ban on signs within the state right of way along highways.Anchorage Superior Court Judge Herman Walker issued a final order on the lawsuit, which was filed in August by the American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska, the group Dunleavy for Alaska and Palmer resident Eric Siebels.Alaska Assistant Attorney General Mike Schechter said both sides agreed to the order.“The people of the state can absolutely express a preference that their scenic byways not be cluttered with huge billboards,” Schechter said. “And we can accommodate both that preference of the people of Alaska and the constitutional right to allow for the display of small political campaign signs on people’s property.”Walker’s order allows for small political signs on private property displayed by owners or residents of the property, as long as they’re not being paid for the display. The state will be able to continue to enforce its ban on highway billboards, but it can’t single out political signs for enforcement.ACLU spokesman Casey Reynolds said the order is a victory for the plaintiffs.“They can’t do a specific crackdown on political signs,” Reynolds said. “They’ll have to do it in the normal course of cleaning out the right of ways.”Alaska has banned advertising along highways since it was a territory.last_img read more

first_imgRepresentational ImageIANSAadhaar is the buzz word in the country now, making frequent headlines for one reason or the other. At times the unique identity card springs up in news for some new deadlines set while on other occasions, it is at the centre of the right to privacy debate.Some times, we just can’t miss certain deadlines, more so when it comes to Aadhaar card.The government India earlier notified that it is mandatory to link Aadhaar card with Permanent Account Number (PAN) in order to file income tax returns (ITR) after July 1, 2017. However, the government extended the deadline to August 05, as many people faced difficulties in filing ITR.On September 1, Modi government decided to extend the deadline further to December 31. The government made it compulsory for all taxpayers to link Aadhaar and PAN and brought in necessary amendments in the income tax laws in the last Union budget.Likewise, it is mandatory to verify Aadhaar with know-your-customer (KYC). The banks, financial institutions were directed to make sure their customers are KYC compliant. To make changes in the rule book, Centre amended the Prevention of Money Laundering Rules (Maintenance and Records), 2005.According to the new rules, one must submit Aadhaar and PAN details to the bank to be KYC-compliant. The deadline for verifying Aadhaar with the KYC is December 31, 2017. The bank account will be barred if one fails to submit the details in KYC forms before the deadline.Following a Supreme Court judgment in February this year, the department of telecommunications (DoT) directed telecom operators to verify all the existing mobile subscribers (both pre-paid and post-paid) with the Aadhaar. The government made it mandatory to provide Aadhaar details while applying for new mobile connections or while buying SIMs.The apex court ordered that verification of all existing mobile subscribers must be completed by February 6, 2018. However, the order does not mention what would happen if, in case, one did not verify phone number with the Aadhaar number.The government also made it compulsory to provide Aadhaar details to avail benefits of social welfare schemes. Recently, the the government informed the Supreme Court that it has extended the deadline for providing Aadhaar details for availing the benefits of welfare schemes to December 31, 2017. Earlier, the deadline was set as on September 30, 2017.Aadhaar cards details would be necessary to avail subsidies on LPG cylinders, pensions and to apply for education scholarships. It would be also be needed to get ration under Public Distribution System among other social benefit schemes.last_img read more

first_imgUS Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch is seen during a meeting with Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) in Cotton’s office in Washington, DC. Photo: AFPDonald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch told a US senator Wednesday that the president’s attacks on judges and courts weighing the legality of his controversial immigration order was “disheartening” and “demoralising.”Gorsuch, who had remained largely silent since Trump nominated him on 31 January made the comments in a meeting with Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, a spokesman for the nominee said, amid preparations for what is expected to be a grueling confirmation process.Gorsuch took exception to the president’s recent tweets in which he attacked a federal judge in Seattle as a “so-called judge” after he blocked Trump’s travel ban on refugees, as well as immigrants from seven mainly Muslim nations.“He said very specifically that they were demoralizing and disheartening and he characterized them very specifically that way,” Blumenthal said of Gorsuch, according to CNN.Ron Bonjean, a spokesman for Gorsuch during the confirmation process, confirmed that the nominee had indeed made the comments.Gorsuch, 49, has served on the US Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in Denver, Colorado since 2006.He is considered a brilliant conservative judge with a prestigious resume, an appreciation of so-called family values, and a preference for a strict reading of the US Constitution—all qualities likely to reassure Trump supporters.Some Democratic lawmakers, still miffed that the ninth seat on the court sat empty for a year as former president Barack Obama’s nominee could not even win a hearing from the Republican-controlled chamber, have pledged to make things difficult.The Senate’s top Democrat, Chuck Schumer, insists that Gorsuch will need to pass a 60-vote threshold to win confirmation in the 100-member chamber, rather than a simple majority as sought by Republicans.Gorsuch would replace the late Antonin Scalia, a towering conservative justice who died a year ago after serving nearly 30 years on the high court.last_img read more

first_imgDerailed train. UNB File PhotoThere are at least 13 bridges with ‘Dead Stop’ signs on the 179 km Sylhet-Akhaura railway route. This could be risky for thousands of the train passengers.A ‘Dead Stop’ sign at a railway bridge instructs the train to stop completely before crossing and then run only at a speed of five-kilometre per hour.Sources at Railway (East Zone) said six trains — Parabat, Jayantika, Paharika, Udayan, Upaban and Kalni — carry around 12,000 to 15,000 passengers every day over these danger spots.Eight of these ‘Dead Stop’ aigns are along an 18 km stretch from Sylhet to Mogla Bazar and five along a 164 km stretch from Mogla Bazar to Akhaura Bridge.According to the Sylhet branch of the railway engineering division, the 13 bridges with ‘Dead Stop’ signs are — Shamshernagar-Tilagon section’s bridge No 200, Mogla Bazar-Maijgaon section’s bridge No 43, 45 and 47, Kulaura-Baramchal section’s bridge No 5 and 7, Satgaon-Sreemangal section’s bridge No 141, Sreemangal-Bhanugach section’s bridge No 157, Maijgaon-Bhater Bazar section’s bridge No 29, and Montola-Itakhola section’s bridge No 56.Sajib Kumar Malakar, assistant station manager of Sylhet railway station, said most of the bridges in this section are in a dangerous condition.“I cannot confirm whether the 23 June accident happened because of the bridge’s condition,” he added.Five people were killed when six coaches of the Dhaka-bound Upaban Express was derailed on 23 June after a culvert over the Barochhara canal, near the Baramchal railway station, caved in.A coach of the BC special train carrying fertiliser from Shahjalal fertiliser factory derailed at near Maijgaon station on 5 April.In another incident, a coach of Jalalabad Express ran off the tracks in Mollikapur of Fenchuganj upazila on 16 May.An oil tanker derailed in Kulaura of Moulvibazar in March 2018, snapping rail communication for two hours with other parts of the country.Trains on Sylhet-Chattogram and Dhaka-Sylhet routes were halted for 15 hours on 23 February last year due to derailment of Upaban Express at Satgaon in Sreemangal.In 2017, media reports highlighted the vulnerable state of Monu Bridge and how bamboo was used to repair it instead of steel rods. The bridge remained that way since then and is currently included on the list of risky bridges.Bhoismara railway bridge, between Sreemangal and Satgaon station, was damaged in a flash flood on 5 April 2017. The condition of the bridge has hardly improved.The rest of the bridges using ‘Dead Stop’ signs are in similarly ar risk.Prime minister Sheikh Hasina on 25 June ordered the authorities to conduct a survey of railway bridges and culverts across the country and repair those damaged or risky.last_img read more

first_imgNot many people saw X-men: Apocalypse when it was in the theaters this summer (if the box office gross is anything to go on), so you might’ve missed the end-credits teaser, which introduced Essex Corp. as a potential new antagonistic player.Considering that there aren’t any official plans yet for another X-men film featuring the main cast, it stands to reason that Essex Corp. will be playing a role in the upcoming Wolverine film, set for release in 2017, but before this weekend, it was unclear as to how.However, with the release of the X-men: Apocalypse DVD and Blu-Ray, we now have an answer. According to Cinemablend, writer/producer Simon Kinberg, and director Bryan Singer confirmed in the audio commentary that this does refer to the unofficially-titled Wolverine 3.Since many of you might’ve missed Apocalypse, the sequence takes place at the Weapon X facility, where a man takes a vial of Logan’s blood and puts it into a briefcase with an “Essex Corp.” label. It’s short and vague and is a reference that would go over the heads of non-comics fans.Essex Corp. is an entity in the Marvel universe that mainly refers to Nathaniel Essex, a man and mutant, known more commonly as Mr. Sinister. Essex was a 19th-century scientist that devoted his life to unethical experiments on mutants and the genome. After being exiled from society, he came across the mutant Apocalypse, who transformed him into the immortal and powerful Mr. Sinister.While this doesn’t outright state that Mr. Sinister will be the villain in Wolverine 3, what we already know about the film makes this theory plausible. Actor Richard E. Grant, who you might know from Bram Stoker’s Dracula or about half of BBC’s television lineup, was cast as a “mad scientist.” While Boyd Holbrook, from Netflix’s Narcos, is reportedly stepping into the role of the lead villain–identified only as the head of a security organization pursuing Wolverine–this would leave room for Grant to pick up the Sinister mantle.If any character in the X-men universe could be slapped with a “mad scientist” label, it’s definitely Mr. Sinister.Previously, Kinberg had been coy about what the teaser meant, telling Collider that it could set up for any number of X-men sequels, including New Mutants or Gambit, if either become real, in-production movies.Little is actually known about the new Wolverine sequel, which is supposed to be Hugh Jackman’s last appearance as the character. We know it’ll star Jackman and Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier and that it’ll be drawing elements from the Old Man Logan story in the comics (not all of it, since the crux of that story, is based too heavily in Marvel lore). We also know that it’ll be rated “R.”However, according to director James Mangold, audiences should expect to see footage very soon.last_img read more

first_imgMen who eat leafy greens, dark orange and red vegetables, berries and drink orange juice may be at a lower risk of developing memory loss in older age, according to a study The findings showed that men who ate larger amounts of fruits and vegetables 20 years earlier were less likely to develop thinking and memory problems, whether or not they kept eating larger amounts of fruits and vegetables later. Men who consumed the most vegetables were 34 per cent less likely to develop poor thinking skills than the men who consumed the least amount of vegetables. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfMen who drank orange juice every day were 47 per cent less likely to develop poor thinking skills than the men who drank less than one serving per month. This association was mainly observed for regular consumption of orange juice among the oldest men, the researchers found. “One of the most important factors in this study is that we were able to research and track such a large group of men over a 20-year period of time, allowing for very telling results,” said Changzheng Yuan from Harvard University’s T H Chan School of Public Health in Boston.

The study, published in the journal Neurology, looked at 27,842 men with an average age of 51 who were all health professionals. Participants also took subjective tests of their thinking and memory skills at least four years before the end of the study. A total of 55 per cent of the participants had good thinking and memory skills, 38 per cent had moderate skills, and seven per cent had poor thinking and memory skills. However, the study does not show that eating fruits and vegetables and drinking orange juice reduces memory loss.last_img read more
