Hancock also was attacked for writing a column for the Telegraph, rather than taking a blanket approach. Share whatsapp A spokesperson said: “Preparing for the spread of the coronavirus outbreak is a national priority and we’re calling on the manufacturing industry and all those with relevant expertise who might be able to help to come together to help the country tackle this national crisis. We need to step up production of vital equipment such as ventilators so that we can all help the most vulnerable, and we need businesses to come to us and help in this national effort.” center_img Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his senior ministers including health secretary Matt Hancock will go before the cameras alongside the chief medical officer Chris Witty and the chief scientific adviser Patrick Vallance, to explain the latest advice on the pandemic.

first_imgInterior | North Slope | Northwest | Politics | State GovernmentRepresentative-elect Patkotak says he opposes joining a caucus that seeks cuts to certain rural Alaska programsNovember 19, 2020 by Wesley Early, KOTZ – Kotzebue Share:Josiah Patkotak is the representative-elect for Alaska’s House District 40 seat. (Photo courtesy of Josiah Patkotak)As lawmakers begin to figure out what the makeup of various legislative caucuses will look like, Josiah “Aullaqsruaq” Patkotak is in a slightly different position than most other representative-elects.With unofficial results coming in two weeks after the general election, Patkotak emerged victorious in the race for House District 40, which includes the North Slope, the Northwest Arctic Borough and several Interior Alaska villages.While Republicans hold a slim majority in the state House, Patkotak, an independent, says he hasn’t committed to joining a legislative caucus yet. However, he says there are several programs he wants to ensure receive funding.“As I lump them together, as I’ve had to talk to people over the last couple days, I call them PPT and PCE — petroleum property taxes and Power Cost Equalization,” Patkotak said. “Those are on the list of priorities. There are other things that I’m interested in looking out for, and I’m making sure those are involved in my decision making moving forward.”With many of the Republicans who’ve been elected to the Legislature in favor of large cuts to funding for state services, Patkotak says he’s opposed to joining a caucus that would cut programs like PPT and PCE.“Anybody that’s going to look at attacking programs or services that are going to affect my district negatively, that’s not something I’m going to be in favor of, obviously,” Patkotak said.Gov. Mike Dunleavy proposed transfering oil property taxes from municipalities like the North Slope Borough to the state government last year. He didn’t repeat the proposal this year. And Dunleavy and some Republican lawmakers proposed eliminating the Power Cost Equalization Fund last year. It’s not clear whether Dunleavy will propose a similar change in the budget he introduces in December.For now, Patkotak isn’t committing to any legislative caucus. He says he hopes to take his role as an independent lawmaker seriously.“I have this deep belief that a lot of things that I’ve learned going whaling can be applied throughout my life,” Patkotak said. “That’s one of the things. You know when to strike the whale and you know when not to. And I think I’m just applying that same principle here. Like I said, I haven’t committed to anybody. All options are on the table.”The Division of Elections expects to officially certify the results of the election next week, with lawmakers set to arrive in Juneau in January.Share this story:last_img read more

first_img Entrepreneur Luke Johnson reveals he has a secret stalker Show Comments ▼ Share Tags: NULL whatsapp whatsappcenter_img Risk Capital Partners chairman and entrepreneur Luke Johnson looks to be paying the price of fame – the private equity star has got himself an obsessive fan. “I appear to have a stalker. She attends many of my speaking engagements and then comes up to me at the end…and says ‘I want you,’” he writes in Management Today magazine. She’s also been to his office and left “weird” letters. Johnson knows who she is but has not yet tried to obtain a restraining order. But why write about it now and how long has this been going on, we wondered? “I first noticed her in 2012 when I was doing a lot of live events promoting my book Start It Up,” he told The Capitalist. “I wrote about her because it seemed odd and I thought it might intrigue readers.” You can say that again, on both counts. Stalkers in the City aren’t as rare as we’d like to think. Natwest/RBS has its very own stalker who sent a vial purporting to be poison to then-CEO Stephen Hester and sent Sir Philip Hampton a number of abusive messages. FTI Consulting’s Dubai MD Marcus Pepperell also has a restraining order out on a woman who harassed him on LinkedIn. Has Johnson sought the advice of his peers? “One writer I know has suffered from some over-ardent admirers, but I haven’t really discussed it widely,” he told us. Let’s hope she gets bored of him soon.

The next stage would be a Eurogroup meeting – a meeting of finance ministers – which is unlikely to occur this week due to the Easter holidays, but may take place next week, a Greek finance ministry spokesperson said.Greece could be buoyed further tomorrow if the European Central Bank increases its ceiling on how much emergency lending Greece’s central bank is allowed to extend to the country’s commercial banks.European Council president Donald Tusk yesterday said he believed a deal could be wrapped up between Greece and its creditors before the end of April. “I hope we will reach an agreement by the end of April; for me it is possible,” he said on a visit to Spain. However, Greece has to repay €460m (£333m) to the International Monetary Fund by next Thursday – a payment that will be watched nervously if no deal is struck by then. whatsapp Sharecenter_img Express KCS whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekComedyAbandoned Submarines Floating Around the WorldComedyGameday NewsNBA Wife Turns Heads Wherever She GoesGameday NewsEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity MirrorNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteableyOpulent ExpressHer Quadruplets Were Born Without A Hitch.

first_img Catherine Neilan Share Show Comments ▼ Wednesday 23 September 2015 4:39 pm Allowing for toxic smog or the vagaries of London weather, tomorrow we will see the first total solar eclipse in 16 years.But, as we were all taught in school, you should never look directly at the Sun, and experts are warning that doing so could cause a “solar burn” on your retina. In other words, it could seriously damage your eyesight, potentially causing blindness.  That’s true whether you’re wearing sunglasses or not.  You can buy special solar eclipse glasses – though most of the stockists seem to be etailers like Amazon and eBay, who are unlikely to deliver in time for tomorrow’s event – so the best option open to you now is to make your own pinhole camera.  (Source: Wikimedia)If you have photo paperFirstly, you need a box. A shoe box is best but it doesn’t really matter as long as it doesn’t let light in. The light comes in from the pinhole.  Paint it black inside and seal it with heavy duty tape like duct tape – perhaps left over from your foray into Fifty Shades of Grey-inspired experimentation. You’ll need a thin piece of metal – thin enough that you can push a needle through. You will also need to sand it down a bit to make the surface smooth.  Once that’s done, cut a very small square opening in the box for the metal square. Then you can tape the pinhole behind the square.  On the outside of the box, make a flap that covers the pinhole – this can be made using more tape.  Find somewhere completely dark for the next stage – a room or large cupboard without any windows. Tape a piece of photo paper to the inside of the box across from the hole. Once you have put the lid on and put the shutter over the pinhole, you can go back into the light. Now you have a pinhole camera. You can point it at what you want to take pictures of by opening the shutter for between 30 seconds and four minutes. You must stand perfectly still though – and remember, no peeking at the sun. To develop the picture, you’ll need to return to the darkroom to take the paper out of the box. What else?If you don’t have photo paper, you can use normal white paper to try a different method to see it as a projection, by cutting a hole out of the shoe box for your head to enter. Make the box and pinhole as described above and just tape the paper into the side of the box – there is no need to find a dark room. With your back to the Sun, put your head into the box. You should see the image of the Sun projected on the paper inside the box. An even easier methodThere is an even easier method if you don’t have a box, although the results are not as good. For this you will need two pieces of stiff white cardboard or two pieces of plain white paper and a thumbtack or sharp pin.  Using the pin, make a small hole in the middle of the paper or card and with your back to the Sun, hold the paper above your shoulder, allowing the Sun to shine on it.  The second piece of paper acts as a projector screen. This needs to be held at a distance, and an inverted image of the Sun will appear. Happy eclipsing… whatsapp whatsapp Total solar eclipse 2015: How to watch in London with a DIY pinhole camera last_img read more

first_img A post-pandemic push to diversify and shorten supply chains poses new risks to cargo owners, a senior container transport executive has warned.Following the virus outbreak in China and subsequent ripples of supply chain disruption worldwide, calls for near-shoring and an end to over-reliance on a single sourcing location have grown louder.Governments in particular are likely to reassess supply chains for medical equipment and critical drugs.However, Mike Bhaskaran, chief technology officer at DP World, warned that supply chain diversification should not mean “spreading it too thin”.He told The Loadstar: “Anyone working in logistics will know that diversification is easier said than done, and shorter supply chains aren’t necessarily a shortcut to more efficiency.“Moving manufacturing operations and re-allocating trade flows across your supply chain is an immensely complex task.“Some companies are feeling pressure to shorten their supply chains in the hope it will mitigate against future disruptions, but they must not force premature decisions.”For example, he said, companies which over-diversify too quickly risk damaging their businesses, post-Covid.“Spreading a supply chain too thin, too quickly – whether geographically or in terms of 3PL partners – will hike costs and limit how competitive a company can be with its end-product prices,” explained Mr Bhaskaran.He said one way to mitigate the risk would be to maintain a “robust and flexible” storage strategy at different stages of the supply chain.“This should be a priority for companies wanting to safeguard against future disruption. Those responding well to the crisis are making smart use of their storage inventories at strategic locations across their supply chains to ensure consumer goods and manufacturing components can get to where they are needed.”Indeed, when demand plummeted in April, shipping lines quickly began offering shippers “storage in transit” products and longer voyages, via the Cape of Good Hope, to prevent cargo arriving too soon when warehouses were already full.Meanwhile, Mr Bhaskaran also recommended shippers diversify the trading partners closest to them.“In some cases, the answer lies in making smarter use of the markets and regions you operate in. DP World acquired Unifeeder and Feedertech for precisely this reason – to expand our end-to-end capability by creating tailored, localised shortsea networks between countries.“Leveraging services like this at different stages across the supply chain can help bring it closer to home and deliver solutions specific to a given market, without having to completely overhaul your wider trade flows,” he said.

first_imgCity of Vancouver awards $3.65 million contract for Mill Plain projectPosted by ClarkCountyToday.comDate: Wednesday, January 15, 2020in: Community Newsshare 0 The section of Mill Plain at I-205 is one of the heaviest traveled streets in Vancouver VANCOUVER — Vancouver City Council on Monday approved a $3.65 million contract with Rotschy Inc., of Vancouver, for construction of the East Mill Plain Boulevard/104th Avenue improvement project. The project is designed to enhance safety and reduce congestion and delays on the Mill Plain corridor, with improved access at the Mill Plain and Interstate 205 interchange. Construction is expected to begin this year.Shown here is the project area for the East Mill Plain Boulevard/104th Avenue improvement project (approximately SE 104th Avenue to SE Chkalov Drive). Graphic courtesy of city of VancouverShown here is the project area for the East Mill Plain Boulevard/104th Avenue improvement project (approximately SE 104th Avenue to SE Chkalov Drive). Graphic courtesy of city of Vancouver The section of Mill Plain at I-205 is one of the heaviest traveled streets in Vancouver. Currently, traffic flow is impacted by two signalized intersections – Southeast 104th and 105th avenues – less than 200 feet apart, lack of queuing space for the southbound I-205 ramp, and high volumes of vehicles heading east on Mill Plain. At the same time, the eastbound left-turn lane to the northbound I-205 ramp lacks the queuing space needed to reduce conflicts of left-turning vehicles blocking eastbound vehicles.The improvement project will eliminate the traffic signal at 105th Avenue and reroute traffic through the Mill Plain Boulevard/104th intersection. The project will also bring much needed resurfacing to East Mill Plain Boulevard from 104th Avenue to Chkalov Drive, enhance pedestrian access, improve stormwater management, and add/upgrade street lights within the Mill Plain / I-205 interchange.The estimated $10.1 million project is funded through grants and local matching dollars, and when completed will utilize $4.2 million federal grant dollars, including a $2 million in federal Surface Transportation grant provided through the Southwest Washington Regional Transportation Council (RTC).More information about the project is available at www.cityofvancouver.us/millplain-104.Information provided by city of Vancouver.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyVancouvershare 0 Previous : Clark County assessor and treasurer to host Property Tax Town Hall Next : High school wrestling: Union girls recall that championship feelingAdvertisementThis is placeholder text guestLabel Name*Email*Website I allow to create an accountWhen you login first time using a Social Login button, we collect your account public profile information shared by Social Login provider, based on your privacy settings.

first_imgBeing a member of the Conference on World Affairs (CWA) Student Volunteer Committee comes with many perks: the chance to invite speakers from anywhere in the world to campus, the ability to design conference panels, free pizza every Tuesday night, and the opportunity to participate in the CWA Speaker Ambassador program.Interested in Becoming a CWA Speaker Ambassador?Apply to be a CWA Speaker AmbassadorSee all Student Volunteer OpportunitiesJoin an upcoming CWA Student Volunteer Committee meeting (Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in Humanities 1B80).CWA speaker ambassadors are paired with a CWA speaker to serve as their campus connection for the week of the conference; they have lunch with their assigned speaker, show them around campus, and often gain valuable advice and career connections. With 100 speakers from around the world attending CWA week each year, there are plenty of opportunities for students to participate in the program.”We match students with CWA speakers based on the student’s interests and the speaker’s area of expertise or background,” explains Nick Sodnicar, CWA student ambassador coordinator. “The primary focus of the program is to provide students with opportunities to build connections while giving the speakers a positive and personal experience.”Some of the CWA speaker ambassadors shared their experiences:Rashel Gandhi (Anthropology), ambassador for David Grinspoon, Senior Scientist, Planetary Science Institute:”It’s intimidating to meet someone so important in your field because you want to make a good first impression, but as soon as I did, I felt very comfortable. It was so great to meet him and we kept in touch via email over the summer. He connected me with two space anthropologists, and even checked in with me to make sure I was watching the eclipse!”Rashel was also interested in the work of CWA speaker William Ryerson, President of the Population Media Center, and introduced herself during the conference. She and Ryerson stayed in touch after the CWA, and Rashel was offered and accepted a summer internship in Montreal with Ryerson’s organization doing cultural research on population demographics for other countries with a focus on Africa.Olwyn Doyle (Political Science), ambassador for Marshall Steinbaum, Senior Economist and Fellow, Roosevelt Institute:”The speaker ambassador program is a really great way to get to know someone who is an expert in your field and build a personal relationship with them. The speakers are all very supportive and appreciative of the ambassador program, so they are absolutely approachable. Marshall and I went to get coffee one day and we talked about everything from world politics, to the student government at Boulder, to how people approach Econ as a field. It was really relaxed, and it was awesome to talk with someone with a different perspective on all of these things.”Kristina Schoonover, (International Affairs) ambassador for Mark Fallon, International Security Consultant:”I had an amazing experience as Mark’s ambassador, I was able to learn a lot from him and take away some pretty amazing advice. Mark works in the intelligence and counterterrorism community, which is where I’m pursuing my career. Throughout the week I was able to share my thoughts on current issues as well as hear his, and the coolest part is that this experience has continued as a mentorship. I was able to attend another one of his talks in July in Crested Butte and see him again, in addition to staying in touch via text and email since CWA in April.”Tags:newslast_img read more
