Its outside noise

first_imgSeoul: Brie Larson’s vocal feminist stance has earned her both fans and trolls but the actor, who fuels her portrayal of “Captain Marvel” with extreme confidence, says she has learnt to tune out the “outside noise” and focus on doing what she feels is right. Larson’s casting as Captain Marvel, “the strongest superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe”, has made her a target of online negativity. “I made a promise to myself a long time ago that I won’t pay attention to either of it (positive or negative). I just do what feels right in my heart and all that stuff is outside noise,” Larson said. “I know who I am and I know what it is that feels right and what I want to do. I just stay true to that. And those other things about myself that I need to learn, things I can do better, I trust that people that love me and are close to me in my life, will tell me those things. Not that outside stuff.” Avengers: Endgame, one of the most anticipated cinematic events of the year, will release on April 26 .last_img read more

BC First Nation buys 5 per cent stake in 25 billion cleanenergy

VICTORIA — An Indigenous nation in northwest British Columbia says an investment in clean-energy projects worth more than $2.5 billion represents a historic move towards its economic independence.The Tahltan Nation announced Monday the purchase of a five per cent stake in three run-of-river hydro-electric projects located in its traditional territories, which include the communities of Iskut, Dease Lake and Telegraph Creek.Tahltan Central Government President Chad Day said the deal marks a significant economic achievement for the nation as it will generate revenue and provide clean energy for decades.The Tahltan purchased a portion of Northwest British Columbia Hydro Electric Facilities for more than $124 million from Axium Infrastructure Canada and Manulife Financial Corporation, said Day in a telephone interview.The power-generating facilities include run-of-the-river projects, Forrest Kerr, McLymont Creek and Volcano Creek, which produce electricity sold to BC Hydro, the province’s Crown-owned energy utility.“All three projects have been up and running for multiple years. There’s a 60-year water licence on these projects with BC Hydro, so there’s about 57 years left,” said Day, who expected the licenses will be renewed once their terms expire.He said the projects, located on the Iskut River, use the natural flow of the water and cause no environmental damage.“These were projects that didn’t require a dam or any major destruction to the environment,” Day said.The Tahltan Nation said in a statement its territory is home to three of B.C.’s 19 operating mines and represents about 25 per cent of current mining exploration activities in the province.The nation said its participation in the run-of-river operations represents the largest clean-energy investment by a First Nation in B.C. history and one of the largest in Canada.Statements released by Manulife Financial Corp., AltaGas Canada Inc., and Axium Infrastructure Canada Inc., said the companies look forward to a lengthy partnership with the Tahltan on clean energy. read more

Should Alex Rodriguez Be Suspended By MLB

Major League Baseball could suspend Alex Rodriguez under its collective bargaining agreement for his latest drug controversy.Taking that step against the slugger would stop the New York Yankees player from returning to the field, even if his current injury has healed.Rodriguez has never been disciplined for a drug offense by MLB. A first-time offender under baseball’s Joint Drug Agreement may still be able to take the field if the players’ union files a grievance. The penalty would simply be put on hold until after an arbitrator rules the case.But if the MLB suspends him under the collective bargaining agreement he would have to sit out.Rodriguez and other players have been involved in a major investigation by MLB. Since January, reports have surfaced alleging several players received performance enhancement drugs from Biogenesis of America, a former anti-aging clinic on Florida.In the past, the Yankees player admitted to using PEDs while playing with the Texas Rangers from 2001-03. He has denied using them since then. read more

Scientists ID Earliest Known FleshEating Fish

first_img A newly discovered species of bony fish is the earliest known flesh-eating marine animal.In a paper published by the journal Current Biology, researchers describe a 150-million-year-old creature that took bites out of other fish.And there’s evidence: Scientists found gnawed-on victims in the same South German limestone deposits as the piranha-like vertebrate.“We have other fish from the same locality with chunks missing from their fins,” study co-author David Bellwood, a professor at James Cook University in Australia, said in a statement.“This is an amazing parallel with modern piranhas, which feed predominantly not on flesh but the fins of other fishes,” he continued. “It’s a remarkably smart move as fins regrow, a neat renewable resource. Feed on a fish and it is dead; nibble its fins and you have food for the future.”The Jurassic-era pyncnodontiform fish (Piranhamesodon pinnatomus) comes from the same deposits as Archeopteryx—a genus of bird-like dino considered a transitional fossil between dinosaurs and modern birds. It is now part of Germany’s Jura Museum collection.Artist’s reconstruction of the head of the piranha-like fish (via Jura-Museum)Closer examination of the fossilized specimen’s preserved jaws revealed a set of long, pointed teeth, as well as triangular chompers with serrated cutting edges—the better to eat you with.“We were stunned that this fish had piranha-like teeth,” museum member Martina Kölbl-Ebert explained. “It comes from a group of fishes (the pycnodontids) that are famous for their crushing teeth. It is like finding a sheep with a snarl like a wolf.”Even more remarkable is the fact that these Piranhamesodons date back to the Jurassic.“Fish as we know them, bony fishes, just did not bite flesh of other fishes at that time,” Kölbl-Ebert continued. “Sharks have been able to bite out chunks of flesh but throughout history bony fishes have either fed on invertebrates or largely swallowed their prey whole. Biting chunks of flesh or fins was something that came much later.”Of course, half the fun of science is proving previously held beliefs wrong.Researchers call the new find a “staggering example of evolutionary versatility and opportunism.”More animal coverage on‘Headless Chicken Monster’ Spotted in Southern OceanDogs Can Understand (Some) Human Words3D-Printed Titanium ‘Skull’ Saves Dog’s Life Florida Frogs Find Shelter From Storm in Wind ChimesGay Penguins Adopt Egg After Trying to Hatch Rocks Stay on targetlast_img read more

PMinspired stimulus package may come as early as this weekend

first_imgPrime Minister Narendra Modi addresses the members of the Indian community, in Japan’s Kobe on June 27, 2019.IANSAfter revoking Article 370 granting special status to Jammu and Kashmir in a seamless manner and the security dragnet in the erstwhile state not resulting in a single bullet being fired, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has begun to focus on the beleaguered economy haemorrhaging in an ugly manner.In his meeting with Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and her team, Modi has argued for quick alleviation measures. With the FPI surcharge causing cataclysmic corrections in the capital markets, the BSE Sensex has seen a drop of 8 per cent since early June, accentuated after the Budget speech which imposed the tax, and the Prime Minister is reportedly concerned about disinvestment receipts which are contingent on a stable equity market.While the Parliament has passed the Finance Bill and tweaking it now will have to see an extraordinary measure, the Finance Ministry has reportedly sought the Law Ministry’s view on how to overhaul it. Section 119 of the IT Act which allows grandfathering is one option. Bringing an ordinance is another, but the former is a far better option.Sector-specific sops could be on the anvil as early as this weekend; the auto and realty sectors are in shambles, consumption patterns after a 10-year glut has fallen off the cliff, the savings rate is at a multi-year low and overall slowdown fears are rampant with almost all metrics in the negative or having seen huge deceleration.The January-March quarter GDP has slowed down to 5.8 per cent, the lowest in five years, which has caused pain points to emerge all across the economic vector.While the Finance Ministry mandarins did make a presentation on these pain points, the Prime Minister is clear that he wants the economy to be kick-started. The revival package though doesn’t have much room to manoeuvre given the needle on the fiscal deficit and the lack of readily available resources. However, a broad sweep of what can be expected will be on the following lines:* The Prime Minister agrees that there is a strong need for the growth revival and the government will go to any extend to jumpstart the somnolent economy.* The government strongly believes that a vibrant capital market is a must to achieve its divestment target.* The proposed surcharge on the FPIs to be reversed through tweaking as it has done incalculable damage.* Long-term capital gain tax to be enhanced to 3 years.* Slowdown in the auto sector is serious, resulting in job losses for which the government is concerned. GST rate could be slashed to 18 per cent across all auto segments. Further, lower registration and road tax levies may provide an additional cushion as the festival season kicks in.* A one-time stimulus package for real estate developers is on the anvil since both auto and realty sectors are job providers.last_img read more

Long disputed radio broadcasts from Amelia Earhart may have been genuine research

first_imgIt was such a shock to the world in 1937 when celebrated aviator Amelia Earhart disappeared during a flight over the Pacific that some people just couldn’t believe it. At least that is what the military said was the cause of dozens of reports of distress calls from Earhart. People said they were picking up fragments of messages from her on shortwave radio in the days immediately after her disappearance. But the officials insisted that the calls were not from her. People must be upset and confused or trying to get attention.Now there’s a new report out making the case that most of these transmissions were genuine. The report was delivered at a conference by the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR). The group’s leading theory is that Earhart and her navigator lived for a short time on the deserted Gardner Island, later called Nikumaroro.Amelia Earhart standing under nose of her Lockheed Model 10-E Electra.Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, may have been able to send out messages on a two-wave radio for a short time, they say. “Will have to get out of here,” a woman could be heard saying at one point, according to the paper containing TIGHAR’s research. “We can’t stay here long.”“Amelia Earhart did not simply vanish on July 2, 1937. Radio distress calls believed to have been sent from the missing plane dominated the headlines and drove much of the U.S. Coast Guard and Navy search,” Ric Gillespie, executive director of TIGHAR, told Discovery News.“When the search failed, all of the reported post-loss radio signals were categorically dismissed as bogus and have been largely ignored ever since,” he added.Amelia Earhart, standing beside a CIT-9 Safety Plane, Los Angeles, c. 1928Using digitized information management systems, antenna modeling software, and radio wave propagation analysis programs, TIGHAR re-examined all the 120 known reports of radio signals suspected or alleged to have been sent from the Earhart aircraft after local noon on July 2, 1937 through July 18, 1937, when the official search ended, according to NBC.The conclusion is that 57 out of the 120 reported signals are credible.A woman in Toronto heard the voice say, “We have taken in water . . . we can’t hold on much longer.”Amelia Earhart in Hawaii. Photo by Pacific Aviation Museum CC BY 2.0Earhart and Noonan could only use the radio for a few hours each night when the tide was low in order to not flood the engine as the plane rested out on the island’s reef, the Washington Post reported.The day after the crash, a Kentucky woman claimed she heard someone say “KHAQQ calling,” before saying “on or near little island at a point near…” and “something about a storm and that the wind was blowing,” according to the Post.With Noonan as her navigator and only crew member, Earhart left Oakland, California, on May 20, 1937, for Miami (with stops along the way), where she announced her intent to circumnavigate the globe. From there, they flew across South America, Africa, India, Southeast Asia, arriving at Lae in New Guinea on June 29, 1937. With 20,000 miles behind them, they had only 7,000 left over the Pacific Ocean.Amelia Earhart standing in front of the Lockheed Electra in which she disappeared in July 1937.On July 2, 1937, Earhart and Noonan took off from Lae with the intention of landing on Howland Island. They never made it.A ship, the USCGC Itasca, was stationed at Howland Island to help Earhart navigate landing her plane.At 7:42 a.m., she radioed: “We must be on you, but cannot see you–but gas is running low. Have been unable to reach you by radio. We are flying at 1,000 feet” At 8:43 a.m., Earhart reported, “We are on the line 157 337. We will repeat this message. We will repeat this on 6210 kilocycles. Wait.” And a few moments later: “We are running on line north and south.”Amelia Earhart in evening clothesThe search for Amelia Earhart was abandoned. The leading theory was that she crashed into the ocean and they sank. But there were always those who doubted the official version, who believed she survived for a short time. and was perhaps even spotted and taken prisoner by the Japanese.Read another story from us: Amelia Earhart’s plane is still missing and no one knows when or how she died, but her 1932 car has been found“The results of the study suggest that the aircraft was on land and on its wheels for several days following the disappearance,” Gillespie said.The research group believes that Gardner Island, an uninhabited atoll in the southwestern Pacific, is where Earhart and Noonan landed safely but ultimately died as castaways.Nancy Bilyeau, a former staff editor at Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and InStyle, has written a trilogy of historical thrillers for Touchstone Books.

Galaxy S9 Unlocked With DualSIM Option Down to Its Lowest Price Ever

Since this particular model is unlocked, you will have to pay the full price but in return, you will get a total savings of $180, which means that the price of the Galaxy S9 comes in at an unbelievable $599.99.Just to be clear, this is cheaper than the highest spec’d out version of the OnePlus 6.

The plane has since been cleared and is back in service.”We’re satisfied the flight is right to continue services,” he said.last_img read more

fed and . early today at the age of 76 Hawking who spent his entire career at the University of Cambridge suffered from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis a degenerative nerve disease with which he was diagnosed in his 20s The disease confined Hawking to a wheelchair for most of his adult life and eventually rendered him capable of speaking only through a computer-controlled voice synthesizer Nevertheless Hawking made seminal contributions to astrophysics particularly in the study of black holes veritable holes in the fabric of the universe “Stephen was far from being the archetype unworldly or nerdish scientist—his personality remained amazingly unwarped by his frustrations and handicaps” Martin Rees a cosmologist at the University of Cambridge and the United Kingdom’s astronomer royal said in a statement “He had robust common sense and was ready to express forceful political opinions” Scientifically Hawking’s name will forever be tied to black holes the ultraintense gravitational fields left behind when massive stars collapse under their own gravity into infinitesimal points Within a certain distance of the point which defines the black hole’s event horizon gravity grows so strong that nothing not even light can escape That fact suggested that the bizarre objects would be completely black However in 1974 Hawking argued that black holes would radiate energy after all Physicists had come to understand that thanks to quantum uncertainty the vacuum of empty space constantly roils with particle-antiparticle pairs flitting in and out of existence too quickly to be directly detected Hawking realized that if such a pair popped into existence on the event horizon of a black hole one particle might fall in past the event horizon while the other escaped to distant space Thus quantum mechanics would allow the black hole to slowly radiate energy back into space and even eventually to evaporate The presumed flux of particles from a black hole is known as Hawking radiation Starting from that point Hawking argued that black holes must have a temperature He and Jacob Bekenstein an Israeli-American theoretical physicist who died in 2015 then concluded that the objects possess an entropy proportional to their surface areas The advance laid the groundwork for the entire formalism of black hole thermodynamics It has led to among other things the conjecture that our entire universe is in some respects like a hologram Hawking radiation has never been observed however as it is expected to be far too weak to be spotted with any conceivable technology Perhaps for that reason Hawking was never honored with science’s most prestigious award the Nobel Prize He racked up numerous other awards however including the Royal Society’s Copley Medal in 2006 and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009 Hawking was also known for making scientific wagers Perhaps most famously he bet John Preskill a theorist at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena that information that falls into a black hole would be lost from the universe forever an idea that is inimical to quantum mechanics which assumes information is never truly destroyed Hawking saw no way for the information in say a computer chucked into a black hole to emerge unscrambled in the randomness Hawking radiation Preskill and others argued that some as-yet-unknown principle would preserve the information Hawking conceded the bet in 2004 presenting Preskill with an encyclopedia of baseball facts and statistics—a permanent record of arcane information The issue remains controversial however Hawking also became a celebrity especially after the publication in 1988 of his first of seven popular books A Brief History of Time Inspiring people both through his deep insights into the most mysterious corners of the cosmos and his ability to succeed in spite of a disease that had been expected to take his life at an early age Hawking became an inspiration to people the world over appearing in several TV shows Twice married and divorced Hawking was father to three children—two sons and a daughter—by his first wife Jane Hawking At his 75th birthday party in Cambridge last year Hawking urged people to “look up at the stars and not down at your feet” and to explore the wonders of the world around them “Be curious” he said according to a University of Cambridge statement “and however difficult life may seem there is always something you can do and succeed at It matters that you don’t just give up”The one third of Alabama counties which have continued to refuse same-sex couples marriage licenses in spite of Friday’s Supreme Court ruling were issued a federal mandate on Wednesday morning: cut it out US District Judge Callie Granade issued the order from Mobile Alabama the Associated Press reports saying that probate judges were not permitted to begrudge same-sex couples their marriage licenses now that the Supreme Court has deemed prohibitions on gay marriage unconstitutional The order came as an update to Granade’s January 2015 ruling that Alabama’s ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional Still it will not force counties who aren’t issuing marriage licenses at all in light of the Supreme Court ruling to begin doing so; the order specifically pertains to discrimination As of Tuesday 22
