first_img Twitter Facebook Brendan Fraser wants me to meet his horse. “I got this horse because it’s a big horse,” he says, standing in a barn in Bedford, New York. He removes a green bandanna from his pocket and gently wipes the animal’s eyes. The horse’s name is Pecas—the Spanish word for freckles. Fraser met him on the set of a 2015 History Channel series, Texas Rising. Fraser played a mid-19th-century Texas Ranger. They were filming down in Mexico, he says, when he and the horse had a shared moment of recognition. “Without doing too much—what’s the word? Anthropomorphic…anthropomorphizing… Without pretending that the animal is a human, he looked like he needed help. Like: Get me out of here, man.” So Fraser brought him back here. Fraser lives nearby and owns property that overlooks this farm, about an hour north of Manhattan. And though he’s been traveling for most of this past year, going back and forth between Toronto, where he was shooting a series based on Three Days of the Condor called Condor, and Europe, where he was shooting Trust, an FX series about the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III produced by Danny Boyle, he makes sure to stop in and visit Pecas every few weeks or so. Why he does this is a question with a few different, surprising answers. But that is the way it is, I’m learning, with Brendan Fraser. He can’t help but digress—“Instead of telling you what time it is, I might give you the history of horology,” he says, in the middle of saying something else. He’s compulsively honest. His mind is like a maze. You wander in and then emerge, hours or days later, disoriented but appreciative that something so unpredictable can still exist in this world. Advertisement Advertisementcenter_img Advertisement His eyes are pale and a bit watery these days—less wide than they used to be when he was new to the screen, playing guys who were often new to the world. Blue-gray stubble around the once mighty chin, gray long-sleeve shirt draped indifferently over the once mighty body. I’m 35: There was a time when the sight of Fraser was as familiar to me as the furniture in my parents’ house. He was in Encino Man and School Ties in 1992, Airheads in 1994, George of the Jungle in 1997, The Mummy in 1999. If you watched movies at the end of the previous century, you watched Brendan Fraser. And though his run as a leading man in studio films lasted to the end of this past decade, he’s been missing, or at least somewhere off in the margins, for some time now. He was there on the poster, year after year, and then he wasn’t, and it took him turning up in a supporting part in the third season of a premium-cable show, The Affair, for many of us to even realize that he’d been gone.

Peace missions can benefit from civil groups input Annan tells Security Council

“I believe that Council members can benefit from the expertise, focus and insight which civil society groups bring to the table,” Mr. Annan said as the 15-member body began a debate on the issue.“The partnership between the United Nations and civil society is therefore not an option; it is a necessity,” he told the session chaired by Delia Domingo-Albert, Secretary of Foreign Affairs of the Philippines, which currently holds the Council’s rotating presidency. For peacebuilding missions to be effective, Mr. Annan said, they should work with and strengthen those civil society forces that are helping ordinary people to voice their concerns, and to act on them effectively. “The aim must be to create a synergy with those civil society groups that are bridge-builders, truth-finders, watchdogs, human rights defenders, and agents of social protection and economic revitalization,” he said. Mr. Annan stressed that there should be a two-way dialogue between the UN and civil society – “not so one can direct the other, but to ensure that our efforts complement one another.” In that vein, civil society organizations should be included in the UN’s deliberative processes, including those of the Council, Mr. Annan said. He pledged to study a new report by a high-level panel examining the issue and urged Council members to consider the study’s recommendations as well. Also addressing the Council, the Secretary-General of CARE International, Denis Caillaux, said the rise of internal armed conflicts and complex emergencies makes it critical to help societies buffeted between armed conflict and natural calamities – effectively caught in geographical patchworks of technical peace but actual insecurity. He added that since half of all peace efforts faltered from the outbreak of local conflicts, it is essential that national peace agreements and peacekeeping mandates must reach to the heart of the local communities.Ian Martin, Vice President of the International Center for Transitional Justice, agreed that the voices of civil society must be heard when peace settlements were being negotiated and when missions to implement them were being planned. He said the effectiveness of UN peacebuilding hinged on the extent to which the Council would strengthen the alliance between the UN and civil society by conveying its expectations in this regard to the leaders of the missions it mandated, and by remaining alert to their response. read more

Security Council authorizes ongoing African Union deployment in Somalia extends UN assistance

By the unanimously adopted text, the Council followed the Secretary-General’s recommendation that conditions would not be appropriate for a United Nations peacekeeping operation in the country until the end of 2016, at the earliest.The Council also extended the mandate of the UN Special Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) until 30 March 2016, underlining the importance that both AMISOM and UNSOM strengthen their relationship to ensure support for the country’s political process.Authorizing the deployment of up to 22,126 uniformed personnel for AMISOM, the Council requested a “structured and targeted” reconfiguration of the Mission to enable a surge in its efficiency. And by 30 October 2015, the African Union should have developed, in close collaboration with the United Nations, a “new concept of operations” for the Mission, the Council requested.Underscoring the importance of UNSOM’s support to the political process in Somalia, in particular the preparation of the electoral process in 2016, the Security Council requested from the Mission that it strengthens its presence in all capitals of Interim Regional Administrations. Deployment of civilian planning in regional capitals should also be a priority in order to improve joint planning between military and civilian components, says the resolution adopted today.On the national security front, the Council welcomed the adoption of the Guulwade (Victory) Plan by the Federal Government of Somalia, a “critical step” towards developing a more effective national army, nonetheless stressing the importance of accelerating improved coordination of Somali security institutions.While it welcomed the Government’s commitment to an “inclusive and credible” electoral process in 2016, the Security Council also expressed concern at continued human rights violations in Somalia, underscoring the need to end impunity for such crimes. read more

Ed Balls Day Star Wars actor Mark Hamill joins in the fun

He tweeted: “I adore that this is still a thing almost as much as the man himself. Happy #EdBallsDay!”Last year, Balls returned to the supermarket where he inadvertently tweeted his own name as he celebrated the sixth anniversary of the blunder.He shared a Boomerang video on Twitter that showed him in the Castleford branch of Asda, holding his BlackBerry as he turned to the camera open-mouthed, with the caption: “Ed Balls – Six Years On.”In 2016 he baked a cake depicting the tweet which became an internet sensation.Balls’ Gangnam Style performance on Strictly Come Dancing is still referred to as a highlight from the 2016 series. read more

Larchs Asian Pacific Islanders connect with culture

first_imgThe Larch Corrections Center is in the Yacolt Burn State Forest, about five miles east of Hockinson. Larch is one of the state’s four minimum-security prisons; it houses 480 offenders, who are within four years of completing their sentences. Those sentences run the gamut, from theft or drug possession to manslaughter or murder.LARCH CORRECTION CENTER — Bouncing and chanting to the drum’s rhythm, the barefoot, bare-chested dancers in flower-print sarongs are greeted by the audience’s gasps of disbelief, giving way to cheering. “Dancing in front of a group of people isn’t what a lot of us grew up learning how to do,” says Antonio Ruiz, or “Blue” as the other offenders at Larch Corrections Center call him. That didn’t stop Ruiz and about 30 other offenders from putting on an Asian Pacific Islander, or API, program for friends, family and a handful of other Larch inmates. The prison’s mess hall served as an auditorium, and an upside-down trash can as a drum, but if you looked past the guards you might think you were inside a community center or church meeting room filled with families waiting to see a cultural event. A large papier-mache dragon, along with several paintings and other API-inspired artwork helped transport the audience beyond the razor wire and less-than-tropical surroundings. “Larch Corrections Center, in the middle of a mountain, that actually took a little bit getting used to, to be honest, coming from Hawaii,” said offender Nainoa”Nine” Fontaine, who spearheaded the program and served as the choreographer. “We’re only initially allotted two days a week to practice dancing. We really had to push and push and they were able to give us four days a week for the past three weeks. So in three weeks we were able to get 12 practices in,” Fontaine said of the 25-minute program.last_img read more

Astronomers detect glitch in a millisecond pulsar

Credit: arXiv:1606.04098 [astro-ph.HE] Explore further More information: A glitch in the millisecond pulsar J0613-0200, arXiv:1606.04098 [astro-ph.HE] arxiv.org/abs/1606.04098AbstractWe present evidence for a small glitch in the spin evolution of the millisecond pulsar J0613−0200, using the EPTA Data Release 1.0, combined with Jodrell Bank analogue filterbank TOAs recorded with the Lovell telescope and Effelsberg Pulsar Observing System TOAs. A spin frequency step of 0.82(3) nHz and frequency derivative step of −1.6(39)×10−19Hz s−1 are measured at the epoch of MJD 50888(30). After PSR B1821−24A, this is only the second glitch ever observed in a millisecond pulsar, with a fractional size in frequency of Δν/ν=2.5(1)×10−12, which is several times smaller than the previous smallest glitch. PSR J0613−0200 is used in gravitational wave searches with pulsar timing arrays, and is to date only the second such pulsar to have experienced a glitch in a combined 886 pulsar-years of observations. We find that accurately modelling the glitch does not impact the timing precision for pulsar timing array applications. We estimate that for the current set of millisecond pulsars included in the International Pulsar Timing Array, there is a probability of ∼50% that another glitch will be observed in a timing array pulsar within 10 years. Citation: Astronomers detect glitch in a millisecond pulsar (2016, June 17) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-06-astronomers-glitch-millisecond-pulsar.html The ‘glitching’ of the Vela pulsar (Phys.org)—European astronomers have uncovered evidence of a small glitch in the spin of a millisecond pulsar. According to a research paper published on June 13 on arXiv.org, the pulsar, designated PSR J0613-0200, exhibits sudden changes in spin frequency, known as timing glitches. It is so far the smallest glitch size recorded and the second detection of a glitch in a millisecond pulsar to date. Millisecond pulsars have highly stable rotation, thus they are used as extremely precise clocks in timing experiments, and the most stable are used as probes of space-time in pulsar timing array (PTA) experiments. PSR J0613-0200 in particular, is used in gravitational wave searches with pulsar timing arrays.Recently, a team of European researchers, led by James McKee of the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics, U.K., detected the glitch in PSR J0613-0200, using data from four different telescopes across Europe. For their study, the astronomers employed the Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank in the U.K., the Nançay Radio Telescope in France, the Effelsberg Radio Telescope in Germany, and the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope in the Netherlands.According to the scientists, the small glitch was easy to detect with a data set covering a long baseline. They noted that during a detailed analysis of the available data, the effect of the glitch was easily removed without loss of timing precision and concluded that this anomaly does not affect the timing stability of this and other pulsars studied in PTA experiments.”As the glitch is small and the red noise of the pulsar is not well-defined, it is therefore likely that potential unmodeled glitches outside the timing baseline for other PTA pulsars have no significant effect on timing array sensitivity,” the researchers wrote.The team is convinced that the observed anomaly in PSR J0613-0200 is, indeed, a glitch and rules out other possibilities, such as magnetospherically induced variations in rotation and pulse shape, or a gravitational wave burst with memory, caused by a merger of a supermassive black hole binary.”A magnetospherically induced change in pulse shape related to a change in frequency derivative was considered as an alternative [explanation]… but no significant change of the pulse profile associated with the glitch was observed,” the paper reads.When it comes to the ‘burst with memory’ theory, the researchers concluded that although the change in spin-down rate is consistent with zero, the small glitch is still relatively too large for this scenario to take this possibility into account.McKee and his team predict that for the current set of millisecond pulsars included in the PTA experiment, there is a probability of about 50 percent that another glitch will be observed in a timing array pulsar within 10 years. However, it won’t be an easy task.”For future glitches in PTA pulsars, only the pre-glitch data would be usable until sufficient time had passed for the post-glitch spin parameters to be measured, or for any post-glitch pulse profile variation to be recognized in the case of a magnetospheric variation,” they concluded.The research confirmed that glitches are very rare in millisecond pulsars. The results presented in the paper could also encourage the scientific community to conduct further studies regarding the difference between the number of glitches in millisecond pulsars and the general pulsar population. © 2016 Phys.org This document is subject to copyright.

Baker Mayfield isnt Brett Favre

first_imgBaker Mayfield isn’t Brett Favre Baker Mayfield is poised to be selected by Cleveland with the first pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, reportedly because GM John Dorsey – who was formerly a Green Bay exec – sees Brett Favre franchise changing attitude in the Oklahoma QB.Colin doesn’t see it and thinks the comparison is off base. Favre was a generational physical talent. As a prospect, Mayfield is undersized and doesn’t have anywhere close Favre’s NFL potential. Colin thinks the real winner is Sam Darnold, who will be spared the chaos of Cleveland and will land in a better situation to set him up for NFL success. Also:– Colin’s final 2018 NFL Mock DraftGuests:Joel Klatt – FS1 College Football Analyst is in-studio talking Baker Mayfield to the Browns reports; why Darnold isn’t in the mix;Clay Helton – USC Head Coach joins the show to talk Sam Darnold and why he can correct his turnover problem.Rod Strickland – Former All-Star NBA Point Guard is in-studio talking NBA Playoffs and why he threw up before games; and his take on why Kyrie Irving wanted out of Cleveland.Daniel Jeremiah – NFL Network Analyst is in-studio discussing the Browns decision to pick Baker Mayfield; and why he likes Lamar Jackson. Cleveland should love LeBron even if he leavesLeBron added another memorable moment to his massive career highlight reel with a buzzer beater to beat the Pacers and take a 3-2 lead in their first round series. Colin still firmly believes the Cavs roster is so bad that LeBron will leave in the offseason, but if he does Cleveland should still show him the appreciation he deserves.LeBron has accomplished his mission of bringing a title to a city labeled a notorious loser, and elevating a franchise that has been a bottom feeder. This time around they should skip the jersey burning and show him respect for the amazing years he has brought to the team and the city.last_img read more

The Arizona Cardinals may have found the answer to

first_imgThe Arizona Cardinals may have found the answer to their quarterback woes after finalizing a trade with the Oakland Raiders for veteran Carson Palmer Tuesday.Arizona sent a 2013 sixth-round draft pick and a conditional 2014 seventh-round selection to Oakland in exchange for Palmer and the Raiders’ seventh-rounder this year.The Redbirds have worked out a two-year, $16 million contract — $10 million of it guaranteed — with the 33-year-old who led the Raiders to an 8-16 record in 24 starts over two seasons. “He’s got a lot of tread on his tire and a lot of football left to play in his career,” Bidwill said. – / 11 Cardinals president Michael Bidwill thinks Palmer will fit in well in Arizona.“He’s a great quarterback, a great leader, a great person,” he said. “It’s exciting to have a player like Carson who’s excited about coming to this organization and coming to the Valley.” With the acquisition of quarterback Drew Stanton last month, some believed that the career backup would be the solution at the position for Arizona in 2013. However, a player that threw for 4,018 yards and 22 touchdowns with a mediocre team last year was too good for the Cardinals not to pursue.Rumors about Palmer leaving Oakland surged after he objected to taking a pay cut. “It was unanimous, a no-brainer,” Bidwill said. “When we learned that he would be available via trade and that we had a shot at getting him, we were aggressive; we went out there, put our best foot forward and made sure that we got the deal done.“I don’t think I ever dreamed that we could have a quarterback the quality of Carson Palmer to come to the Cardinals as an opportunity that fell.” The arrival of Palmer brings stability to the quarterback position that the team hasn’t had since Kurt Warner’s retirement in 2010. Even at his age, Bidwill believes Palmer has plenty left in his tank.

Cabinet appoints committee to renegotiate gas agreement updated

first_imgThe cabinet on Tuesday appointed a committee that will enter talks with energy companies over the revenue sharing agreement for the 4.5 trillion cubic feet (tcf) Aphrodite gas finding in an offshore block.“The best option is to try and find a mutually acceptable solution with the consortium so that the Aphrodite reserve is developed as soon as possible,” Energy Minister Giorgos Lakkotrypis said after the meeting.The minister said development of the reserve would have a lot of financial and geopolitical benefits.Aphrodite lies in block 12 of Cyprus’s exclusive economic zone and it is Cyprus’s first gas finding, discovered in 2011.The Houston-based Noble Energy Inc. is the leader of a consortium with the participation of Israel’s Delek and Shell.Lakkotrypis said the government had been informed at the end of last year that the consortium had come to a preliminary agreement with Shell, which operates an LNG terminal in Egypt, to sell gas to them.The consortium also said that because of the low international price of oil, the project would not be viable and they had asked for a review of the financial conditions in the existing agreement.The negotiating team will be made up by the ministers of energy and finance and consultants from the hydrocarbons company and the legal service as well as any others who may be deemed necessary.Lakkotrypis said the effort will be to wrap it up as soon as possible since the window of opportunity was small as conditions in the sector changed on a daily basis.“From then on the progress of the negotiations will define the course of the talks,” he said.If all goes as planned, natural gas will start flowing to Egypt in 2022, Lakkotrypis said.He warned that as time passed, that date was also pushed further and that was why it was important to find a mutually acceptable solution as soon as possible.Lakkotrypis said political parties will be briefed about the results of the talks.While the decline in energy prices that set off in mid-2014 has negatively affected investment in hydrocarbons, in recent months they started to recover.The price of a barrel of oil had fallen from over $100 per barrel four years ago to as low as below $40. Currently, Brent oil is traded at around $70.Lakkotrypis urged the media to show understanding in the next few months since it was a sensitive matter and information made public should be scarce.“We will have the opportunity to talk if and when we conclude,” he said.You May LikeTronodes.comBest Fat Burning Foods For A Healthy LifestyleTronodes.comUndoMy Daily DiscoveryHow To Keep Your Photos And Videos SafeMy Daily DiscoveryUndoPhotoStick MobileThis Incredible Device Instantly Backs Up All Your Photos & Videos!PhotoStick MobileUndo House rejects presidential veto over repossession lawUndoRussian opposition leader Navalny hospitalised for allergic reactionUndoUK plays Brexit hardball with ‘stubborn’ EUUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Excess rain no reason for wasting water Kadis says

first_imgDespite the heavy rainfall over the past few days, Cyprus continues to face a water shortage and the public should still make an effort to conserve, agriculture minister Costas Kadis cautioned on Thursday.“The rains are certainly welcome, but they do not resolve our problem with water shortages,” Kadis told state broadcaster CyBC.He warned that the current exuberance at the flow of rainwater into the dams should not turn into complacency, adding that people should continue to limit their water consumption.The minister revealed that new legislation was being prepared – to be submitted to the cabinet later this month – outlining short, medium and long-term policy goals for water usage.It would include provisions for additional desalination plants. A decision on building a mobile desalination plant for Paphos would be withheld until the end of January, depending on the water situation at that time.In Paphos and in other areas, streams swelled into gushing torrents and despite some damage to potato crops, overall farmers were content with the rains.“It was raining all night last night here,” Lambros Leonida, said.“It’s been ages since I’ve seen anything like it.”Numerous roads were closed around the island on Thursday especially in the Paphos and Troodos regions, and police warned drivers of landslides and overflowing rivers while dense fog severely limited visibility.According to police, the Kelokedaros-Amargetis-Natas road became impassable due the Xeros river overflowing near the Zyripili bridge. For the same reason, the Tselefos bridge had to be closed to traffic.The road from Ayios Nikolaos to the Pera Vassa picnic area also became impassable because of the accumulation of large quantities of water as is the road from Kouklia village to the Evangelos Florakis memorial.Excess water had also gathered on the road from Episkopi to Nata, making it impossible for vehicles to use. In the mountains, the old road from Akrounta to Dierona had to be closed because of a rockfall. Due to snowfall, the road leading from Prodromos to Troodos was closed to all vehicles.However, in spite of the water flow into reservoirs overall capacity was still low, albeit rising, authorities said.According to data from the Water Development Department (WDD), more than 6 million cubic metres (mcm) of water flowed into the island’s reservoirs during the first two days of the year.“Following an excellent December, where 16.9mcm flowed into reservoirs, we had a very good start (this year). The first two days of this month gave us 6.140mcm,” WDD senior engineer, Fedros Rousis, told Sigma TV.He said that on Wednesday alone, 5.2mcm flowed into the reservoirs, which is the best for this winter.Rousis said that reservoir capacity is gradually rising. At the moment it was at 18.6 per cent compared to Wednesday’s 16.8 per cent.“We still need a lot more rain to reach full capacity,” he said, expressing optimism that the water flow into reservoirs would carry on even up to April with more rain and melting snow.The Kouris dam is which the biggest on the island is currently at 13.4 per cent of its overall capacity but some of the smaller ones, such as those of Kalopanayiotis, Solea and Klirou-Malounda have reached full capacity.The Tamassos reservoir is around 82 per cent full, while those of Mavrokolympos, Pomos and Argaka have reached between 73 per cent and 76 per cent of their capacity.The heavy rainfall also caused a few rivers to overflow with authorities closing down roads on some occasions.Average rainfall in December reached 169 per cent of normal for the season, or 178.4mm, according to preliminary data issued by the Met Office.The cold spell is meanwhile set to continue, with more snowfall forecast for Thursday evening at the Troodos mountains and possibly at lower altitudes as well.For Friday, the Met service is forecasting isolated showers and strong winds. Temperatures are expected to come to 16 degrees inland and at the coast, 6 degrees on the mountains.For the weekend, the Met is forecasting partly cloudy weather and isolated showers. On Saturday night to Sunday morning more snowfall or sleet is expected in the mountains, leading to a drop in temperatures.Motorists can check on the roads situation via the police application and the information page www.cypruspolicenews.com.You May LikePlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD Total Restore SupplementU.S. Cardiologist: It’s Like a Pressure Wash for Your InsidesGundry MD Total Restore SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
