Timeline SNCLavalin and Jody WilsonRaybould

first_imgOTTAWA — A chronology of events in the SNC-Lavalin controversy:Feb. 19, 2015 – The RCMP lays corruption and fraud charges against Montreal-based engineering and construction firm SNC-Lavalin, over allegations it used bribery to get government business in Libya. SNC-Lavalin says the charges are without merit and stem from “alleged reprehensible deeds by former employees who left the company long ago.” A conviction could bar the company from bidding on Canadian government business, potentially devastating it.Oct. 19 – The Liberals win a federal election, taking power from the Conservatives. Two weeks later, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau names Jody Wilson-Raybould minister of justice and attorney general of Canada. She is the first Indigenous person to hold the post, which combines duties as a politician (heading the Department of Justice) and a legal official (overseeing prosecutions).March 27, 2018 – The Liberals table a budget bill that includes a change to the Criminal Code allowing “remediation agreements,” plea-bargain-like deals between prosecutors and accused corporations in which they can avoid criminal proceedings by making reparations for previous bad behaviour. SNC-Lavalin had lobbied for such a provision in Canadian law.Spring – Although the bill has yet to pass, SNC-Lavalin contacts Public Prosecution Service lawyers to ensure they have all relevant information for a possible invitation to negotiate a remediation agreement. During the next three months, in response to requests from prosecutors, SNC-Lavalin provides detailed information it sees as making a strong case for an agreement.Sept. 4 – The prosecution service tells SNC-Lavalin it will not invite the firm to negotiate a remediation agreement.Sept. 17 – Trudeau and Wilson-Raybould discuss the SNC-Lavalin file. As attorney general, Wilson-Raybould could overrule the prosecution service, directing it to negotiate an agreement with the company. (Trudeau later says Wilson-Raybould asked him if he planned to tell her what to do concerning the prosecution — a conversation that he says ended with him telling her any decision was hers alone.)Sept. 18 – SNC-Lavalin representatives meet with Privy Council clerk Michael Wernick, Canada’s most senior public servant, and Finance Minister Bill Morneau to discuss issues including “justice and law enforcement.”Sept. 21 – The remediation-agreement provisions come into legal force.Oct. 9 – The prosecution service confirms in writing it will not invite SNC-Lavalin to negotiate a remediation agreement, a decision the company challenges in Federal Court. That challenge is ongoing.Oct. 10 – SNC-Lavalin issues a news release saying it strongly disagrees with the director of prosecutions’ position and remains open and committed to negotiating a remediation agreement. SNC-Lavalin shares fall nearly 14 per cent, closing at $44.86 on the Toronto Stock Exchange. That’s the lowest close since March 2, 2016.Oct. 11 – SNC-Lavalin meets with Elder Marques, a senior adviser in the Prime Minister’s Office, to discuss “justice and law enforcement.”Nov. 5 and 19 – SNC-Lavalin meets with Mathieu Bouchard, another senior adviser in the Prime Minister’s Office, to discuss “justice and law enforcement.”December – According to the Prime Minister’s Office, Wilson-Raybould raises the remediation case with Gerald Butts, the prime minister’s principal secretary, and he tells her to talk to Wernick, the Privy Council clerk.Jan. 14, 2019 – Trudeau shuffles his cabinet after the resignation of Treasury Board president Scott Brison. Wilson-Raybould is moved from Justice to Veterans Affairs, widely seen as a demotion. David Lametti, a Montreal MP and former law professor, becomes justice minister. Wilson-Raybould posts a long letter outlining her record as justice minister and noting a great deal of work remains to be done toward reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples.Feb. 7 – Citing unnamed sources, the Globe and Mail newspaper reports that Trudeau’s aides attempted to press Wilson-Raybould, while attorney general, to intervene in the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin, and that exasperation with her lack of co-operation was one reason for shuffling her out of the justice portfolio. Trudeau denies any impropriety. Wilson-Raybould says solicitor-client privilege prevents her from speaking about dealings she had on the case while attorney general.Feb. 11 – Ethics commissioner Mario Dion says he’s beginning an investigation. Trudeau says he’s spoken to Wilson-Raybould and confirmed with her that he said any decision on the SNC-Lavalin prosecution was entirely hers. Her continued presence in his cabinet speaks for itself, he says.Feb. 12 – Wilson-Raybould resigns as veterans-affairs minister and says she’s hired former Supreme Court justice Thomas Cromwell to advise her on the limits of solicitor-client privilege. Trudeau says he’s surprised and disappointed that Wilson-Raybould has quit, and that if she felt undue pressure in her role as attorney general, she had a duty to report it to him.Feb. 13 – The House of Commons justice committee debates its own probe of the issue. Liberals use their majority on the committee to call one closed-door meeting and hear from senior officials (Lametti as justice minister, the top bureaucrat in his department, and the Privy Council clerk) who can talk about the tension between the minister of justice’s duties as a politician and his or her responsibilities as attorney general of Canada. The Liberals say this is a first step in a cautious investigation, but the opposition calls it a coverup.Feb. 15 – Trudeau says Wilson-Raybould asked him in September whether he would direct her one way or another on the SNC-Lavalin question. He says he told her he would not.Feb. 18 – Butts resigns as Trudeau’s principal secretary. He denies any impropriety but says his presence in the Prime Minister’s Office has become a distraction.Feb. 19 – Wilson-Raybould stuns observers by attending a meeting of the very cabinet from which she had resigned a week earlier. Trudeau says she had asked to speak there and was invited to do so but cabinet confidentiality means nothing can be revealed about why or what was said. After the meeting, Wilson-Raybould says she is still talking to her lawyer about what she can and can’t say publicly.Feb. 20 – Trudeau says that while an airing of the facts is needed, he is confident the examinations underway by the ethics commissioner and the justice committee will provide it. The Liberals use their House of Commons majority to defeat an opposition motion calling for a public inquiry into allegations the Prime Minister’s Office pressured Wilson-Raybould.Feb. 21 – Wernick launches a vigorous defence of the government’s handling of the criminal prosecution of SNC-Lavalin, bluntly declaring allegations of political interference to be false and even defamatory. The Privy Council clerk also challenges Wilson-Raybould’s assertion that solicitor-client privilege prevents her from responding to allegations.Feb. 25 – Trudeau partly waives both solicitor-client privilege and cabinet confidentiality for his former attorney general, paving the way for Wilson-Raybould to tell her side of the SNC-Lavalin saga to the justice committee and ethics commissioner. The order specifically notes, however, that she cannot speak publicly about communication she had with Kathleen Roussel, the director of public prosecutions.Feb. 27 – Wilson-Raybould is slated to testify at the justice committee.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Amid seething controversy Anupam campaigns with icons lookalike

first_imgKolkata: Despite several BJP supporters and workers were allegedly seen vandalising the Vidyasagar College in video clips, BJP candidate in Jadavpur constituency Anupam Hazra without bothering about the party’s humiliation started campaigning with a man dressed up as Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar. On Thursday, during Hazra’s campaigning, which started from Jadavpur 8B bus terminus, a person dressed up as Vidyasagar was seen with him. Hazra said it was his style of protest against how Vidyasagar has been politicised by the TMC. Though in the video clips, BJP supporters and workers were seen vandalising Vidyasagar College, Hazra refused to believe that. Leaders from various political parties said what BJP workers and supporters did on Tuesday, after that Hazra was just maligning Vidyasagar by using him during campaigning. But Hazra claimed the TMC was maligning Vidyasagar. He claimed the BJP had nothing to do with the vandalism though several workers of the saffron party have been arrested after being identified from the video clips.last_img read more

A flyover that took two decades to be completed

first_imgNew Delhi: For the residents of north Delhi, Rani Jhansi flyover, which was inaugurated last year, is a classic example of how a government project should not be executed — with cost overruns and painfully long delays in completion. The flyover is one of the slowest ever constructed, with the project spanning two decades and witnessing a cost escalation of around Rs 600 crore. Infamous for missing deadlines, the flyover was finally inaugurated in October last year. Due to inordinate delays, the project witnessed several fold cost escalation from the initial estimates of Rs 178 crore to Rs 725 crore. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: Javadekar Conceived in 1998 and commissioned by the erstwhile unified Municipal Corporation of Delhi in 2006, the 1.6-km-long flyover from St Stephens Hospital to Filmistaan Cinema, was originally scheduled to be completed by September 2010, ahead of the Commonwealth Games in the national Capital. The flyover, which starts at Filmistan Cinema, passes through the congested stretches of Azad Market Chowk, Pul Bangash and DCM Chowk. Officials said that the flyover benefits over five lakh commuters who take this stretch. Also Read – Union min Hardeep Singh Puri, Delhi L-G lay foundation stones for various projects in Dwarka With the flyover getting operational, the residents of the nearby areas have heaved a sigh of relief last year as they finally saw the never ending construction work coming to a stop. “I was just happy to see the construction work come to an end. The exorbitant time taken for construction can only be attributed to the apathy of the authorities’ in-charge. Many shops were demolished to make way for it. Dust would fill your lungs and during monsoons the site became a breeding ground for mosquitoes,” said Gulab Singh, a resident of Bara Hindu Rao area. The flyover has decongested the roads going towards Kamla Market and Delhi Ridge and has connected Pusa Road, Upper Ridge and Rohtak Road through Filmistan Cinema, DCM Chowk, Azad Market and Roshanara Road extending to ISBT (Kashmere Gate), providing a major relief to the heavily congested area. The flyover has drastically reduced the travel time for the commuters who used to be stuck in jams stretching for about an hour near Kashmere Gate, Yamuna Bazaar and Sadar Bazaar areas. Officials claimed that the flyover has been able to cut the travel time of the commuters by as much as 90 per cent. “With the opening of this flyover, the traffic entering from the states such as Punjab, Haryana, Jammu and Kashmir straight away reaches Dhaula Kuan. This has drastically reduced the congestion at the Kashmere Gate bus terminal and the New Delhi area. Commuters coming from Rajouri Garden, Punjabi Bagh and other areas in west Delhi towards the ISBT, are also able to avoid traffic snarls,” an official with the North Delhi Municipal Corporation said. The biggest obstacle faced by the North Delhi Municipal Corporation in completing the project was land acquisition in the highly congested area. Several shops on the stretch had to be relocated to make way for the construction work. Apart from this, the removal of the two religious structures falling on the way was also a big challenge for the authorities. Officials said that the Supreme Court also barred the land acquisition for the project several times. They point out that the biggest reason for the project escalation cost was land acquisition. Initially, the land acquisition was worth about Rs 70 crore but its figure reached nearly Rs 550 crore. Officials said that apart from land acquisition from private property owners, the work involved several other complicated issues such as exchange of land with Railways and “Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board” (DUSIB), shifting of DDA market, shifting of schools and markets. Involvement of multiple agencies including Railways, Jal Board, Traffic Police, Municipal Corporation and other civic agencies also contributed in the delays. Apart from this, the project was conceived at the time the national Capital had a unified MCD and during the tenure of the erstwhile Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit. In 2012, the MCD was trifurcated and the project was handed over to the North Delhi Municipal Corporation.last_img read more

Businesses a hot commodity in 2018 expect the same in 2019

NEW YORK — Small businesses sold at a record pace in 2018 and are expected to remain a hot commodity this year.BizBuySell.com, an online market for small businesses, counted 10,312 sales transaction reported by brokers in 2018, up 4 per cent from 9,919 in 2017 and 31 per cent over 7,842 in 2016. All three totals have been the highest since BizBuySell.com began tracking sales in 2007.In a survey of current business owners asking why business sales keep rising, half the participants said retiring baby boomers continue to put their companies on the market, extending the trend that began back in 2013. With more baby boomers reaching retirement age — boomers are considered to be people born between 1946 and 1964 — it’s likely they’ll continue to seek buyers for their businesses.Many buyers are interested in companies because they want to be their own bosses, BizBuySell.com said. Already established companies are also in the market for small businesses; many are looking to expand their staffs through acquisitions because they’re struggling to find qualified job candidates in a tight labour market.The combination of a stronger economy and healthier companies lifted sales prices for businesses, BizBuySell.com said. The median sales price in the transactions it counted was $249,000 last year, up 9.3 per cent from $227,880 in 2017. Eighty-six per cent of the brokers predicted sales prices would be in the same ballpark or increase in 2019.Forty-five per cent of the companies sold were restaurants or retailers, and 41 per cent were service providers. Four per cent were manufacturers, and an assortment of other industries accounted for the remaining 10 per cent. With consumer spending having been strong in recent years, businesses that cater to consumers have been more attractive and in turn have commanded higher sales price.Companies going on the market are healthier than in past years, BizBuySell.com says. The median revenue of companies sold last year was up 6.3 per cent to $531,653 from $500,000 in 2017. Cash flow, which indicates how well a company will be able to pay its bills, also gained, rising 4.3 per cent to $120,000 from $115,000 in 2017._____For more small business news, insights and inspiration, sign up for our free weekly newsletter here: http://discover.ap.org/ssb_____Follow Joyce Rosenberg at www.twitter.com/JoyceMRosenberg .

GTF wants UN rights body to closely monitor Sri Lanka

The report analysed a number of emblematic cases involving security forces covering a period of over ten years with no decisive progress to-date and reiterated High Commissioner’s view that ‘international participation in accountability mechanisms remains a necessary guarantee for the independence, credibility and impartiality of the process and an integral part of the commitments of the Government under Human Rights Council resolution 30/1.’ The Global Tamil Forum (GTF) today welcomed the report on Sri Lanka by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights backed the observation that ‘stronger, tangible results needed to be forthcoming without further delay to prevent any further dissipation of hard-earned trust.’While acknowledging the Sri Lankan Government’s constructive engagement with United Nations’ human rights mechanisms; visible progress on constitutional reform process; positive developments on the broader human rights agenda; and commendable efforts on consultations towards establishing transitional justice measures, the report was emphatic that the ‘fulfilment of transitional justice commitments has been worryingly slow and the structures set up and measures taken were inadequate to ensure real progress.’ The report was categorical that the Government has not moved fast enough with tangible measures – viz. restitution of the land held by the military; resettlement of internally displaced persons; repealing the Prevention of Terrorism Act; effective conclusion of the cases of the remaining security detainees; formulating effective victims and witness protection arrangements; and stopping security force surveillance, harassment and torture – that would immensely help build confidence among victims and the Tamil community. “It is in this light that we are dismayed and reject the statements from the Sri Lankan leaders, including a recent statement from Prime Minister Wickremesinghe that argue participation of international judges would require constitutional amendments with approval from country wide referendum,” GTF said.GTF said the High Commissioner’s assertion that unclear and often contradictory messages delivered on transitional justice mechanisms by the President, the Prime Minister, and various members of the cabinet, as a factor contributing towards contradictions in policy development and public messaging around transitional justice and reconciliation, need to be acted upon with utmost seriousness by the highest levels of the Sri Lankan Government. GTF called upon the Government of Sri Lanka to make every effort to implement all of the recommendations presented in the High Commissioner’s report, which include: ‘present a comprehensive strategy on transitional justice, with a time-bound plan’; ‘invite Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) to establish a full-fledged country presence’; ‘adopt legislation establishing a hybrid court, which should include international judges, defence lawyers, prosecutors and investigators’; and ‘operationalise the Office of Missing Persons Act and provide the Office of the Missing Persons with sufficient resources and technical means’.The High Commissioner’s recommendations to the member states ‘urge the Human Rights Council to continue its close engagement to monitor developments in Sri Lanka’, ‘investigate and prosecute those responsible for serious human rights violations under universal jurisdiction wherever possible’ and ‘ensure respect for the principle of non-refoulement in the case of Tamils who have suffered torture and human rights violations’. GTF said the recommendations are timely and need to be heeded. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Norfolk man gets 10 years for drug trafficking

SIMCOE — A 39-year-old Simcoe man’s sentence of 10 years in penitentiary is believed to be the harshest punishment every imposed in Norfolk County related to drug offences.“Ten years is a very significant sentence,” federal Crown attorney Jamie Pereira said Monday in Simcoe’s Ontario Court of Justice. “It is the longest sentence in this community strictly related to drug trafficking. It sends a message that if you get caught, you’re going to go to jail for a long time.“Protection of the public in this case is very important.”Braden Fitzgerald pleaded guilty to three sets of charges of possession and trafficking in large quantities of fentanyl, cocaine, methamphetamine, and hydromorphone in both Simcoe and Woodstock.Court heard that Fitzgerald turned to trafficking, at least in part, to feed his own drug addiction.Pereira said, by supplying dangerous and sometimes lethal drugs, Fitzgerald contributed to a growing local opioid crisis, like that being seen across the country.A community-impact report prepared by the Ontario Provincial Police and presented to Justice Aubrey Hilliard on Monday indicates there were five fentanyl-related deaths in Haldimand-Norfolk and seven in Oxford County in 2017, the last year for which statistics were available.“That’s a very alarming number for these relatively small communities,” said Pereira. “We’re seeing one person dying every month due to fentanyl.”In an agreed statement of facts, court heard that, on Sept. 24, 2017, police saw Fitzgerald walking on Kent Street in Simcoe carrying a backpack that he put inside the trunk of a Cadillac.Police knew Fitzgerald’s driver’s licence was under suspension and pulled him over.When police searched Fitzgerald, they found a vial of cocaine in his pocket. In the backpack and another bag, police found 72 grams of fentanyl with a street value of about $7,750, 314 grams of cocaine valued at $15,400, 30 grams of methamphetamine valued at $1,400, and 363 hydromorphone pills valued at $20,000.At the time of his arrest, Fitzgerald was on a probation order, with one of the terms that he not possess or consume any unlawful drugs.On various dates last May and June, police conducted surveillance on Fitzgerald when he was seen meeting for short periods of time with people known to be “involved in the drug subculture,” said Pereira.Police arrested Fitzgerald on June 7, 2018, in Woodstock. He was in possession of 30 grams of fentanyl, six grams of cocaine and 1.5 grams of methamphetamine. He was also in possession of almost $2,000 from drug sales.Fitzgerald was released from custody in a promise to appear in court.Just under two weeks later, on June 19, 2018, Fitzgerald and another man were arrested as they were leaving a home on Millcroft Drive in Simcoe. Police found $3,825 in Fitzgerald’s wallet from drug sales, two cellphones and a bag containing 16 grams of cocaine, eight grams of fentanyl, two grams of carfentanil, two grams of methamphetamine and 100 hydromorphone pills.Police later searched the house on Millcroft Drive where they found 28 grams of marijuana, three grams of cocaine and a gram of hydromorphone. They also found weigh scales and multiple drug debt lists.Prior to the sentencing, Pereira said aggravating factors in the case were the large quantities of the drugs involved and that Fitzgerald was on probation for his first trafficking offence when he was subsequently arrested.Fitzgerald has a lengthy criminal record, with eight previous convictions related to drugs.“He was motivated by profit and greed,” Pereira told the courtroom.Fitzgerald’s lawyers told the court that their client grew up in Simcoe and became addicted to pain medication after injuring his shoulder. In 2011, he was involved in methadone treatment, during which he bought a home, had a job and developed healthy relationships.But, in 2016, he again started using and selling drugs to feed his habit.“He is a drug trafficker,” said the judge. “There is no other way to put it.”The community-impact statement said the painkiller fentanyl is 50 to 100 times stronger than morphine and must be carefully formulated to avoid overdoses.“Due to its rapid rate of absorption in the human body,” says the statement, “reports indicate that 0.1 to 0.15 milligrams of pure fentanyl can be deadly. The estimated lethal dose of fentanyl for humans is two milligrams.“A typical business card weighs one gram. If the business card were torn into 1,000 pieces, the equivalent of two of those pieces of fentanyl could be fatal if it were ingested, inhaled or absorbed through the skin.”From 2009 to 2014, says the statement, there were at least 655 deaths in Canada where fentanyl was determined to be a cause or contributing factor.Fitzgerald was given enhanced credit for the 391 days he spent in pre-sentence custody and sentenced to an additional six years and four months in jail. He was given a two-year consecutive jail sentence for the June 2018 offences, bringing the total sentence up to the equivalent of 10 years. He is also prohibited for life from possessing a weapon.“This type of behaviour won’t be tolerated by the court or the community,” said the judge, adding that if Fitzgerald continues to use he will spend his “life in jail in installments or be dead.”“I hope you take this time to get yourself sorted out, with addiction and maybe things you’re not even aware of yet,” Hilliard told him before he was taken from the courtroom. read more

How to buy a ticket to BlizzCon 2013

first_imgBlizzard announced in February that it would be holding its 7th BlizzCon gaming convention on Friday November 8 and Saturday November 9 this year. All you need to do is make travel arrangements to get to the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, as well as come up with $175 to buy a ticket.What Blizzard didn’t announce at the time was how to go about purchasing a ticket. But today the details have dropped.There will actually be three chances for you to purchase a BlizzCon ticket this year. The first will be on Wednesday, April 24 at 7pm PDT, when Blizzard opens access to the first batch of tickets. The second will be on Saturday, April 27 at 10am PDT, where the remaining batch of tickets will be sold.Last time a BlizzCon convention was held the tickets only took a few minutes to sell out, so there’s a certain element of luck to be had in acquiring one. However, I did mention a third option for gaining access to the event, but it is a lot more expensive.Blizzard is also going to sell $500 tickets to a Benefit Dinner, which also includes access to BlizzCon 2013. They will be available on Wednesday, May 1 at 7pm PDT. The proceeds from these ticket sales are going to the CHOC Children’s Hospital in Orange County.In all cases, tickets will be available to purchase directly from the BlizzCon website. If you see them for sale anywhere else then they aren’t official and you shouldn’t waste your money.The next question you’ll ask is, is it worth going? The answer to that depends on how much you’re into Blizzard’s existing games. You’ll get to see the finals of the Blizzard eSports event, attend discussion panels with developers, take part in Blizzard game tournaments and contests, or spend more money and grab some commemorative merchandise.There’s also the promise of access to the latest Blizzard games and expansions, but I’m guessing there will be very long queues and a lot of sweaty mice and keyboards to deal with.last_img read more

Monastery to be moved uphill

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A 12th century monastery in the northern prefecture of Grevena, which is to be literally carried to the top of a hill to make way for an artificial lake, was on Monday shuffled about a meter in a precursor to the big move. The monastery must be moved to allow for the creation of the lake that is to power a hydroelectric dam that Public Power Corporation (PPC) is planning to build in the area. Over the next two weeks, a team led by specialist engineer Dimitris Korres, is scheduled to haul the monastery onto rails that will transfer the 260-ton structure a distance of 127 metres and up a 24 per cent incline. The relocation of the monastery, budgeted at 850,000 euros, will be funded by PPC. In an interview Korres said his team has been instructed to display particular care during the transfer as the monastery’s interior walls feature rare murals. Another concern is that the structure must be carried up a hill. Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

Orchidées congeler leurs graines pour les préserver

first_imgOrchidées : congeler leurs graines pour les préserverLancé par les scientifiques de vingt-trois pays d’Amérique, d’Europe et d’Asie réunis dans l’initiative, un projet mondial vise à congeler les graines des espèces d’orchidées les plus menacées pour pouvoir les sauvegarder.Quelque 250 espèces d’orchidées ont déjà vu leurs semences congelées à -20°C par les chercheurs d’une organisation scientifique internationale, dans le cadre du projet “Magasins de graines d’orchidées pour leur utilisation durable”. Les espèces choisies pour cette première étape de préservation sont considérées comme les plus menacées, parmi les 35.000 recensées à travers le monde.Comme le souligne auprès de l’AFP Hugh Pritchard, chercheur britannique, ces orchidées sont à la fois menacées par la cueillette à des fins commerciales, et par le réchauffement climatique qui devrait, au cours des quarante prochaines années, accélérer la disparition de plusieurs espèces. “Les semences serviront à la réintroduction d’espèces, à la reconstitution d’habitats”, explique le chercheur, soulignant que les graines sont si minuscules qu’elles peuvent être stockées par millions dans une petite chambre réfrigérée.Vingt-trois pays participent à ce projet, chacun en fonction de ses besoins et de son expérience. Ainsi en Équateur, l’université de Cuenca fera germer 35.000 graines des espèces les plus convoitées sur le marché. 10.000 d’entre elles seront alors vendues à un prix très bas, “pour saturer la demande” et éviter la cueillette sauvage, explique le biologiste équatorien Eduardo Sanchez. Quant aux 25.000 orchidées restantes, elles seront implantées au bord des rivières, dans des jardins botaniques et même dans l’université, afin de “stimuler l’admiration du public pour ces fleurs, inciter à leur préservation et favoriser le tourisme”.Le 3 octobre 2010 à 19:19 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Astéroïde suivez en direct le passage dApophis près de la Terre

first_imgAstéroïde : suivez en direct le passage d’Apophis près de la TerreDans la nuit de mercredi à jeudi, l’astéroïde Apophis de 275 mètres de diamètre s’approchera de la Terre à une distance de 14,4 millions de kilomètres. Il s’agit de son passage le plus proche d’ici une éventuelle collision en 2036.Son passage est très attendu, et ce depuis plusieurs années. Autant dire que les astronomes comptent bien ne pas le manquer ! Baptisé du nom d’un dieu égyptien, l’astéroïde Apophis de 275 mètres de diamètre (soit environ trois terrains de football) s’approchera dans la nuit de mercredi à jeudi à une distance de 14,4 millions de kilomètres. Il s’agira alors de son passage le plus proche de la Terre d’ici 2029, date à laquelle il la frôlera pour éventuellement venir la percuter 7 ans plus tard, en 2036. Initialement, les astronomes avaient estimé à 2,7% les chances pour qu’Apophis entre en collision avec la Terre en 2029. De nouveaux calculs ont toutefois montré que l’astéroïde ne ferait que la frôler à une distance de 22.208 kilomètres le 13 avril 2029. Cette fois, ce sera ainsi la distance la plus faible jamais observée dans les temps modernes. En revanche, en 2036, le risque de collision pourrait être plus important. “Les calculs révèlent que la probabilité pour qu’Apophis entre en collision avec la Terre cette année-là est de 1 sur 250 000”, a indiqué Steve Chesley et Paul Chodas, du Jet Propulsion Laboratory de la NASA.Beaucoup moins donc que les précédentes estimations qui évoquaient 1 chance sur 45.000. Mais les derniers calculs sont certainement plus fiables car ils se basent en grande partie sur les observations effectuées par l’astronome Dave Tholen et son équipe de l’Institut d’astronomie de l’université d’Hawaii. Il n’y aurait donc d’après les spécialistes qu’un “minuscule risque d’impact” en 2036. Une retransmission dès 22H30 mercredi soir À lire aussiLune, cigarette électronique et intelligence artificielle, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 3 SeptembreD’ici là, ils invitent donc le grand public à observer en temps réel le passage d’Apophis cette nuit, notamment sur le site Slooh.com dont les équipes sont équipées de télescopes notamment installés dans les îles Canaries. “Seul parmi tous ces astéroïdes proches de la Terre qui ont passé leur chemin ces dernières années, Apophis est celui qui a généré le plus d’inquiétude dans le monde à cause de son approche extrêmement près en 2029 et son risque d’impact potentiel, bien que petit en 2036. Nous sommes excités de couvrir le direct du passage de cet astéroïde pour le grand public”, a expliqué le président de Slooh Patrick Paolucci cité par le Telegraph.  L’évènement démarrera ce soir à 22h30 sur le site Slooh : http://events.slooh.com/ (lien non disponible)Le 9 janvier 2013 à 12:28 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Demonetisation Your old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes could be worth

first_imgA shopkeeper holds out Rs 500 notes.IBTimes/Arkadev GhoshalPrime Minister Narendra Modi may have rendered illegal the old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes in one fell swoop — announcing on November 8 that these banknotes would be outlawed from that midnight — but it might be a good idea to hold on to some of them, because they might fetch good money about five to 10 years from now, and may become even more valuable after that. The reason is simple. The notes will not be readily available then, and therefore will be valued for their rarity to people who collect coins and notes as a hobby. The hobby itself is called numismatics, and the collectors are known as numismatists. How is the value of old notes calculated?To a numismatist, the older and rarer a coin or a note, and the better condition it is in, the more valuable it is. However, if a coin or not is simply old and in good condition but not exactly rare, it may not fetch a good sum. Thus, while gold coins from Akbar’s reign in the late 16th century are to be sold for auctioned for around Rs 42,000 through Todywalla Auction on December 10, a currency note from India with a face value of two rupees and eight annas — and issued under the British Rule in the early 1900s — costs lakhs.In fact, depending on the condition of the note and where it was made — at the Bombay mint, from where such notes are common, or the Lahore mint, from where such notes are rare — it may cost Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 5 lakh.  An old currency note from India, with face value of Rs 2 and 8 annas.IBTimes/Arkadev GhoshalSo what about the Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes?Karnataka Numismatic Society Secretary Varaprasad PS told International Business Times, India, that the old and demonetised Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes will not be valued high anytime soon. “It could take at least five years — if not more — for them to really appreciate in value. They may become truly valuable in a couple of decades,” he said. Is that what happened to the Rs 5,000 and Rs 10,000 currency notes that were demonetised in 1978? “No,” said Varaprasad. “Very few people had those notes, and whatever they had was returned to the government via the banks. That is why they can now be seen only at the Reserve Bank of India Museum in Mumbai.”What factors will drive the value of the Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes?Varaprasad pointed out that for a currency note to be valuable to a numismatist, it has to be rare. “However, there is a glut of these notes right now. Even if everyone in India keeps one note with them, that will be 120 crore notes. That should not happen,” he told IBTimes India.”There is also the question what condition the currency note is in. The best ones are those that are in mint condition,” said Varaprasad. It may also be pointed out that the Rs 2 and 8 anna note that costs the most is also in near-mint condition, and hence is so valuable.last_img read more

Google partners with WordPress and invests 12 million on an opinionated CMS

first_imgOn Monday, Google announced that it has partnered with Automattic Inc., the parent company of WordPress.com, to develop an advanced open-source publishing and revenue-generating platform for news organizations named Newspack. Under the Google News Initiative, they have invested $1.2 million towards their efforts in building this platform. The purpose of this platform is to help journalists put their full energy in covering stories instead of worrying about designing websites, configuring CMSes, or building commerce systems. Google mentioned in the post, “It is trying to help small publishers succeed by building best practices into the product while removing distractions that may divert scarce resources. We like to call it “an opinionated CMS:” it knows the right thing to do, even when you don’t.” It will also provide publishers full access to all the plugins created by the WordPress developer community. Automattic, in an announcement, called for small and medium-sized digital news organizations to become charter participants in the development of Newspack. If you want to become one of the partners, you can fill in the form issued by Automattic, which is due by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (UTC -5:00) on February 1. The platform’s beta version is estimated to be released near the end of July and will be made available to publishers globally later this year. To get a better idea of the features and capabilities needed by publishers and their business impact, Automattic will be working with Spirited Media and News Revenue Hub. Spirited Media operates local digital news sites in Denver, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh, and News Revenue Hub provides revenue solutions for digital publishers. In addition to Google, other funding organizations for this platform include The Lenfest Institute for Journalism, ConsenSys, the organization backing Civil Media, and The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
