Minister Vaz Reports Over 90 Per Cent Support for Plastic, Styrofoam Ban

first_img “We, in this Administration, have taken the bold step and, thankfully, the citizenry has supported it. I don’t know of any other policy that has gotten 90-odd per cent support, not by the Government’s own data but by independent pollsters. Story Highlights Five months after the ban on styrofoam and single-use plastic bags was implemented in Jamaica, Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Hon. Daryl Vaz, is reporting more than 90 per cent support for the initiative.“We, in this Administration, have taken the bold step and, thankfully, the citizenry has supported it. I don’t know of any other policy that has gotten 90-odd per cent support, not by the Government’s own data but by independent pollsters.“So it means as a people, we are realising and seeing the damage that is being done to the environment by these plastic [materials] and improper disposal of the items,” he said.Minister Vaz was addressing a public forum at the Rio Nuevo Village in St. Mary on Wednesday (May 30), on the topic ‘Adapting to Climate Resilience Action Plans: My Responsibility’.As of January 1, 2019, the Government has imposed a ban on single-use plastic bags, straws and polystyrene. The ban covers the importation, manufacture and distribution of the materials.The plastic bags banned are those that are commonly referred to as ‘scandal bags’ and other bags with dimensions of 24 inches by 24 inches or less.“I am happy to say that since the ban came into effect, we have carried out extensive public awareness campaigns. The National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA), Jamaica Customs and all our partners have moved with haste to enforce the ban,” Mr. Vaz noted. “So it means as a people, we are realising and seeing the damage that is being done to the environment by these plastic [materials] and improper disposal of the items,” he said.

Killjoys Breaking through the Double Standard

first_img Login/Register With: Advertisement Advertisement Facebook Twittercenter_img Despite the fact that it’s 2016 and gender equality in front of and behind our television screens is getting better and better, there’s still a very big double standard that exists when it comes to male versus female characters on television. Similar to real life, when a male character has several different sexual partners he’s often patted on the back (way to go bro! stud!), but when a female character displays similar type behavior she’s criticized, perceived as damaged or looked down upon (slut!). While change can be slow, thankfully there are shows like Killjoys out there who are not only breaking, but completely shattering these antiquated double standards.While Season 2 of Killjoys has certainly been the Year of the Woman, focusing on several different female characters during its sophomore run thus far, make no mistake about it, this is Dutch’s show. Some fans have commented that earlier episodes this season seemed to be pushing Dutch aside and she wasn’t as central as last year, but that’s certainly changed over recent weeks. Hannah John-Kamen has grown nicely into her role this season and completely owns the character in every single facet. Showrunner Michelle Lovretta has said she wanted Dutch to have more fun and be more playful this year–given how young John-Kamen actually is–and we definitely have seen that youthfulness shine through in fun undercover ops or when the actress showed off her singing chops.But perhaps one of the (many) great things Killjoys has done with Dutch this season is show that a woman is fully capable of having many different types of relationships. Killjoys is a diverse show, not just with its cast, but also in the wide variety of character traits and relationships it portrays. Just as they do in real life, people on Killjoys are not confined to having just one type of relationship or one type of romance and that’s extremely evident with Dutch in Season 2. While she may have connected with D’avin (Luke Macfarlane) in Season 1 over shared experiences, we’re now seeing her connect with Alvis (Morgan Kelly) in a different, but equally important manner.

No deja vu Secondhalf comeback fails for OSU

The Ohio State men’s basketball team’s 15-game home win streak and nine-game conference win streak came to an end Wednesday night after a 60-57 loss to No. 4 Purdue. The story of the game was Purdue’s first-half dominance. In front of the first sell-out crowd of the season at the Schottenstein Center, the Boilermakers jumped out to an early lead and led for all 40 minutes of Wednesday’s game. With just more than seven minutes remaining in the first half, junior Evan Turner converted a three-point play and for the first time all night the capacity crowd erupted. The jubilation was short lived, however, as Purdue’s Keaton Grant immediately responded with a four-point play at the other end. The crowd again rose to its feet when junior Jon Diebler made the team’s first three-point basket with less than a minute ago. But again, the Boilermakers answered, this time with a three-point play. In the first half “they made some shots and some of us didn’t have our heads right,” Turner said. “As a unit we didn’t execute how we were supposed to.”Purdue led by 13 at the break and although the Buckeyes got as close as 48-46 late in the second half, the first half struggles proved to be too much to overcome. OSU had one last chance in the waning moments when Diebler took and missed a potential game-tying three-pointer as time expired. “I got a good look,” Diebler said. “I should have knocked it down. There’s really no excuses.”Unlike in last month’s game at Purdue, the Buckeyes did a much better job of containing junior Robbie Hummel. Hummel torched Ohio State 35 points in the first meeting, but was held to just four Wednesday.However, OSU simply had no answer for junior JaJuan Johnson. After scoring a season-low four points in the first meeting between these two teams, Johnson led the way offensively for the Boilermakers. He scored a team-high 24 points on 11-17 shooting. “He made shots and those were some tough shots,” Diebler said. “That’s a heck of a basketball player right there.”As expected, Turner handled the bulk of the load for the Buckeyes and scored a game-high 29 points. With the loss, OSU dropped to 10-4 in conference play, but the Buckeyes have little time to regroup. They travel to East Lansing, Mich., Sunday to play the Big Ten’s first-place team. “You have to be honest with yourself and say ‘OK what didn’t we do well?’ but we have another tremendous challenge down the pipe,” coach Thad Matta said. “I told the guys after the game, we have to be a better basketball team on Sunday.” read more

Franck Ribery This could be my last year at Bayern Munich

first_imgFranck Ribery has admitted that this could be his final year at Bayern Munich, despite intending to continue his playing career up to the age of 38The French winger has spent over a decade at the Allianz Arena and, in that time, he has won eight Bundesliga titles and the Champions League in 2013.Yet Ribery, who signed a one-year extension at Bayern last season, admits that his future after the season is in doubt.“It’s too early to say now,” said the 35-year-old on ESPN.“I’d be up for another season, but let’s wait and see how this season shapes up.“I am relaxed and don’t put myself under pressure.

Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.The 2006 World Cup finalist confessed that he had received offers from foreign clubs before signing a new contract at Bayern.“I never wanted to leave,” he added.“There were serious offers from China, but I like the Bundesliga and the Champions League. I dream of winning it for the second time.“I am still ambitious, I am still driven. I have never said to myself this will be the last year. I have won everything, I can relax now. I always give it my all because it could be my last year.“At my age, you never know what’s next, but I would like to play until I am 38.”Ribery has managed 117 goals and 180 assists in 391 appearances across all competitions for Bayern.last_img read more

Alex Neil admits Brentford gave his side a hard time

first_imgPreston’s boss Alex Neil said that his side’s 4-3 victory over Brentford did not come easy but was one they had to compete hard for, although they had a three-goal lead in the opening 23 minutes.Having such narrow victory, Neil insists that his side should keep their focus throughout the 90 minutes, as the Lilywhites have been unbeaten in four matches.“I think we’ve been involved in a lot of high scoring matches this year, not by design really,” Neil said, according to Sports Mole.“I think once we go 3-0 up, we’re hoping to then go and try and make it an easier night for ourselves.”“But Brentford are a good side, they pose you a lot of questions and a lot of problems.”Mephan joins Bournemouth from Brentford Manuel R.

Avengers Endgame 4DX makes for even more of a Marvel rollercoaster ride

first_img3:14 The water feature — which can be turned off via a button in your seat if you’d prefer not to get wet — is used pretty cleverly since there aren’t too many watery environments in Avengers: Endgame (unlike last year’s Aquaman). You’ll get a quick splash when a character draws blood with an attack, which is most effective when Thor goes “for the head” early in the movie. It makes this shocking moment feel even more visceral. Less effective is the wind machine. You’ll likely not even notice this feature until the end, when you realize you’re a bit cold. This can be a bit distracting, so 4DX is best for a second viewing rather than your initial visit.4DX isn’t the best choice for your initial Avengers: Endgame watch — we’d advise seeing it 2D first — but it’s a wonderful experience if you’re looking to mix things up on a repeat viewing.

Your seat goes pretty nuts during the finale, but this chunk of the movie is such a sensory overload that you won’t notice it that much. Don’t worry about getting too shaken up; this isn’t anywhere the level of an actual roller coaster and won’t leave you with aches or pains. However, it is a little distracting and can make you miss minor plot details. Now playing: Watch this: 0 26 Photos The 3D varies in its quality — there are moments when the added sense of depth makes you feel like you’re in the scene and others where it seems muddy and out of focus. Should you give the experience a try, make sure you’re sitting somewhere pretty central, about halfway back in the room, to alleviate that feeling.There are a few light effects too, but those are only used sparingly — the only time it had a major impact was when Thor goes all out with his powers. Seeing the lights flash as his eyes crackle with lightning is super cool. Tags Avengers: Endgame is a thrilling sequel to every MCU… Endgame is here Post a comment Avengers: Endgame in 4DX offers some cool moments. Thor is responsible for one of them. Cineworld Avengers: Endgame is a box-office-record-sinking roller-coaster ride no matter what format you see it in, but there’s one that makes that a little more literal.The 4DX experience is like watching a 3D film where your seat shakes and rumbles, a wind machine sometimes makes things a bit chilly, lighting effects punctuate certain moments and you occasionally get splashed with water (that part’s optional). It’s designed to make the movie more immersive, with the kinds of things you’d associate with a theme park ride more than a movie. Note: we’ll be veering into mild spoiler territory ahead.spoilers-mcuThe moving seats are the main attraction here — they’ll rumble and jolt to match the on-screen action, while the cinematic pans and zooms see them tilt accordingly. Spaceships going into hyperspace and the time travel aspect are the most obvious examples, with a fun amount of rocking and rolling. Just be prepared to feel a little silly as you ride with the heroes in those moments.However, the gentle rocking during emotional scenes (particularly those at the end) is the most effective. It’s surprisingly subtle, and you’ll feel closer to the characters in their vulnerable moments.

Photo: UNBA clash broke out between the demonstrating Chittagong University unit leaders and activists of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) and police on Sunday.Bangladesh Chhatra League is the student wing of ruling Bangladesh Awami League (AL).The BCL men enforced a blockade in the university from 7:30am today locking the main entrance of the university to press home their four-point demand.The demands are — withdrawal of arms lawsuit against six of their activists and their release, withdrawal of all political cases filed since 2015, resignation of the proctor and closing of Hathazari police station officer-in-charge Belal Uddin.OC Belal Uddin told news agency UNB that a case was filed against several BCL activists after a clash between two factions of Awami League’s student wing and recovery of arms.Organising secretary of CU BCL’s abolished committee Mohammad Ilias said, “The movement will go on until the demands are met. Plying of train and other vehicles will be closed till then.”At the outset of the movement, the BCL men stopped the shuttle train service cutting down hosepipes of several compartments.Chattogram railway police officer-in-charge Md Mustafizur Rahman told Prothom Alo that for the time being the plying of shuttle is closed.The shuttle train’s compartment-based organisation of BCL Bijoy and Choose Friend with Care enforced the blockade.The university authorities called the demonstrators to withdraw the blockade before 12:00pm but they did not respond.The clash broke out when police tried to disperse the demonstrators. The law enforcement members fired tear-gas shells to disperse the demonstrating BCL men.The demonstrating Chhatra League men were throwing brick chips taking position in front of Shah Amanat and Suhrawardy halls of the university when the report was filed.The demonstrators cut tyres of at least 30 buses and other vehicles of the university.last_img read more

Gray Guilty in the Murder of Taylor Hayes

first_imgBy Michelle Richardson, Special to the AFROAugust 14, a Baltimore jury found Keon Gray guilty in the murder of seven-year-old Taylor Hayes last July.Gray, was found guilty of second degree murder and a total of seven of 19 counts against him including: second-degree murder of Taylor Hayes and use of a firearm in commission of a crime of violence against Taylor Hayes, among other charges against others involved in the shooting that took Taylor’s life.Seven-year-old Taylor Hayes was killed last July. On Aug. 14, Keon Gray was found guilty of second-degree murder in her death (AFRO Photo)Hayes was killed in July 2018 as she rode in the backseat of a car driven by a family friend. She was struck in the back by a bullet through the trunk and died 2 days later. She became one of Baltimore’s youngest victims of gun violence. Police have charged Daneka McDonald, 35, who is the girlfriend of Gray with an accessory after the shooting. Her car was allegedly used as the getaway vehicle in the shooting. McDonald is scheduled for trial next month. Last month, a judge prohibited parts of McDonald’s 12-hour police interview when the judge determined detectives allegedly intimidated her. Gray’s trial became more controversial when the lead detective in the case was charged with drunk driving and other charges.Sgt. Kevin T. Brown, 43, of Abingdon was charged with driving his unmarked police vehicle under the influence after a crash on I95 in Howard County last year. The charges are listed as driving while impaired by alcohol, negligent driving and failing to control a vehicle speed to avoid collision, in addition to the charge of carrying a handgun while under the influence of alcohol, court records show. When police arrived, Brown identified himself as a Baltimore City police officer. He was arrested at the scene and taken to JFK Memorial Highway Barrack. Baltimore Police spokesman Matt Jablow said Brown has been on administrative duty with pay but did not know when the suspension began. Jablow said the department has been aware of the charges. He declined to comment further on the investigation.A hearing on the matter is scheduled Aug. 23 and a trial date scheduled for Oct. 31.Brown, whose testimony is at the center of the trial, allegedly made conflicting statements under oath, leading defense attorneys to claim that Gray is a scapegoat for the BPD’s rushed police work. A witness stated the car she seen speeding away from the crime scene was not the same vehicle that Gray was identified in.last_img read more

Molecules could create tiny circuits on computer chips

first_imgPolymer molecules can be deposited onto computer chips where they arrange themselves into small-scale patterns like the one shown here. Credit: Yeon Sik Jung and Joel Yang. (PhysOrg.com) — As the features on computer chips become increasingly smaller, finding ways to fabricate the chips has become a big challenge. In a new study, researchers from MIT have demonstrated that certain molecules can be deposited on mostly empty chips, where they arrange themselves into patterns that form the outlines of tiny functioning circuits. Researchers Karl Berggren, the Emanuel E. Landsman Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering, and Caroline Ross, the Toyota Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, have published their new method in a recent issue of Nature Nanotechnology. New Laser Technique Advances Nanofabrication Process Citation: Molecules could create tiny circuits on computer chips (2010, March 16) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-03-molecules-tiny-circuits-chips.html More information: Joel K. W. Yang, Yeon Sik Jung, Jae-Byum Chang, R. A. Mickiewicz, A. Alexander-Katz, C. A. Ross & Karl K. Berggren. “Complex self-assembled patterns using sparse commensurate templates with locally varying motifs.” Nature Nanotechnology. Doi:10.1038/nnano.2010.30. via: MIT News © 2010 PhysOrg.com As explained in an article at MIT News, the process currently used to fabricate circuits on chips – photolithography – has changed very little over the past 50 years. Photolithography involves shining a light through a patterned mask onto a layer of light-sensitive material coated on the computer chip. Light exposure causes the photoresist to harden, and when the unhardened area is washed away, only the patterned area remains.However, now that chip features have become smaller than the wavelength of light used in this process, photolithography cannot be used anymore. To confront this challenge, researchers have tried using electron beams instead of light beams due to their smaller wavelength. However, the problem with electron-beam lithography is that it takes a long time, and so it is more expensive. Unlike photolithography, which can expose an entire chip at once with light, an electron beam is more focused and can only expose small areas at a time, so that it has to scan back and forth across the chip to cover the entire area.In the new method, Berggren and Ross have greatly minimized the need for electron-beam lithography, using it only to create sparsely patterned guidance posts throughout the chip. To fill in the patterns between the posts, they deposited long, repeating chains of polymer molecules that attach themselves to the posts and then arrange themselves in specific patterns. To get the desired patterns, the researchers used copolymers, which are made of two different types of polymer molecules. The different polymer chains don’t like to mix, yet they are still joined together – like “the characters played by Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin in the movie Midnight Run, a bounty hunter and a white-collar criminal who are handcuffed together but can’t stand each other,” in Berggren’s analogy. By trying to pull away from each other, the polymers arrange themselves into predictable patterns.Later, when exposed to a plasma, one of the polymers turns to hardened glass, while the other burns away. Like in photolithography, the glass polymer could be used as the photoresist, which hardens to form the pattern. By controlling different characteristics – such as polymer lengths, their relative proportions, and the shape and location of the posts – the researchers could produce a variety of specific patterns that could be useful for designing circuits. With its minor reliance on electron-beam lithography, the new method could offer cost-effective fabrication in areas besides computer chips. For example, the technique could be used to produce stamps for creating magnetic patterns on hard disks, which are currently produced with electron-beam lithography. However, more research is required before manufacturing individual computer chips with self-assembling molecules, such as getting the molecules to form the exact patterns needed to produce functioning circuits.
