Canada ratifies agreement blocking commercial fishing in the High Arctic

first_imgThe Canadian Press OTTAWA — Canada has ratified an agreement that would prevent commercial fishing in the High Arctic for 16 years.The deal was initially signed last October by Canada and nine other governments but won’t be enforceable until all parties ratify the agreement. The governments that have signed the agreement include Norway, the United States, China, Iceland, Japan, the Republic of Korea, and Denmark in respect to Greenland and the Faroe Islands, but it has been ratified only by Canada, the European Union, and the Russian Federation.The agreement applies to northern waters at least 200 nautical miles away from the shores of any coastal state, which amounts to 2.8 million square kilometres of ocean, about the size of the Mediterranean Sea.It also provides for the participation and inclusion of Arctic Indigenous Peoples and their communities, recognizing the critical value of their local knowledge in the conservation of the Arctic Ocean.No commercial fishing currently takes place in the High Arctic, but fish stocks are shifting and fishers and scientists have wondered what the northernmost seas on the planet hold.Fisheries Minister Jonathan Wilkinson says Canada is leading the way to protect the oceans, combat illegal fishing and help protect the Arctic’s fragile ecosystems for future generations.last_img read more

This will have a knock-on effect on the number of tourists able to visit the site, with the OPW predicting around 180 tourists a day to visit the historic site.The permits are in demand – last year, the OPW received a total of 15 applications for the two permits available.A total of 22 applications were received this year, an increase of seven applications on last year.It is understood the permits can be held for up to three years. Each boat will be able to hold 12 passengers.The Last JediThe islands, which are situated off the coast of Kerry saw a huge boost in global interest after they were featured in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.Star Wars: The Last Jedi – due for release this Christmas – is the last time the heritage site will be featured in the blockbuster franchise.

De Jong spoke with PSG and Guardiola before his decision

first_imgDuring another interview after his transfer was made public, Frenkie de Jong revealed that he spoke to Tuchel and Guardiola beforehand.The last couple of weeks have been incredibly hectic for Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong, he’s had to deal with PSG’s Maxwell and manager Pep Guardiola during the time of the negotiations with FC Barcelona.As we all know both Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City were eager to get their hands on the Ajax talent and both clubs were making strong proposals to him on a daily basis, the player was polite at all times and heard every single one of them.The key moment in all of this negotiation was when the player decided to directly speak to both Pep Guardiola and Thomas Tuchel, he needed to tell both managers directly that his decision was to play for FC Barcelona as the next step of his career.Things worked out differently with both clubs, Pep Guardiola obviously reacted in a very different manner than the people at PSG did.Because even though the Catalan manager currently coaches Manchester City, he will always look out for his beloved FC Barcelona’s best interest as this is the club closest to his heart.When De Jong told the manager about his decision, neither he nor the rest of the board responded in a negative way and accepted the decision.🚨 [L’Equipe] | Guardiola had previously asked Koeman to tell Frenkie de Jong that he was impressed by his attempt to influence him and made him decide to play in Manchester City. Pep’s attempts to convince De Jong failed as the player will go to Barca.— BarçaTimes (@BarcaTimes) January 23, 2019But things didn’t work out like that in Paris, as the club has been struggling immensely to secure the signing of a new midfielder during a very challenging time for them.Sporting Director Antero Henrique promised Nasser Al-Khelaifi that he would bring De Jong to the club, but he wasn’t able to deliver and now his job might be in question at the moment.Paris Saint-Germain urgently needs a player with Frenkie’s specific set of skills, they will now have to go on a panic buying spree before the winter transfer window closes and they will obviously not get the player they were hoping for.With Adrien Rabiot’s situation on a point of no return and Marco Verratti recently injured, the club has fewer options to get their things together and the clock just keeps ticking for them.And now with Neymar’s injury fresh after last Wednesday’s fiasco, things are about to implode at Paris Saint-Germain in a season that seems destined to fail miserably once again.FC Barcelona, Valencia CFMatch Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).The Dutch midfielder revealed that he didn’t speak directly with PSG manager Thomas Tuchel, instead he spoke to board member Maxwell and then he had a one on one with Pep about his final decision.Frenkie de Jong: Pep Guardiola spoke to me about joining Manchester City, but… #MCFC— E-Manchester City (@e_mancity) January 24, 2019The Dutch player talked to NOS about his chats with both clubs, and he also revealed that he didn’t speak to manager Ernesto Valverde at all.“I spoke to PSG, yes. I rang Maxwell to tell him I was not joining them and my agent informed PSG,” he revealed to NOS.“I also spoke with Guardiola about a move to Man City. Clubs all try to convince you when they want you. I am happy and proud that they did so much to get me. I am happy, proud and also somewhat relieved that it’s now all behind us.”Even if clubs like Manchester City showed a lot of interest, Frankie revealed that choosing the perfect fit for him was actually not that difficult due to FC Barcelona’s rich history and tradition.“Barcelona have always been a dream club for me,” De Jong continued.“The fact that they were so serious about getting me and that I have a good chance of getting playing time made the decision a bit easier.”“I already watched Barcelona as a kid and then when I was a bit more aware of the game you had the Guardiola era with all their successes. That turned me into an even bigger fan. I have always been a big fan of Messi, although I liked the entire team.”Man City’s search for Fernandinho competition continues after Frenkie De Jong signs for Barcelona #mcfc— Manchester City News (@ManCityMEN) January 24, 2019Why do you think Frenkie de Jong chose FC Barcelona over Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain?

Interview to Unveil Redesign

first_imgInterview, the Andy Warhol-founded magazine that has seen a number of editorial and staffing changes since its longtime editor-in-chief, Ingrid Sischy, left earlier this year, is set to unveil a redesign next week.The new-look Interview—hitting newsstands August 26—is bigger (13” X 10” from the current 12” X 10”) perfect bound and uses a heavier stock. Most notably, the September issue features a striking foil-and-ink cover—the first North American magazine to do so, the company says.

Bill criminalising instant triple talaq passed in Parliament

first_imgNEW DELHI: Parliament on Tuesday approved the bill that makes instant triple talaq a criminal offence after the contentious legislation was passed by Rajya Sabha following non-aligned BJD extending support and NDA constituents JD-U and AIADMK walking out. Lok Sabha had passed the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill last week and with Rajya Sabha now approving it, the practise of instant divorce by Muslim men will be punishable by a jail term of up to three years. Also Read – Odisha’s Conjoined Twins To Return Home 2 Years After Separation Advertise With Us The Upper House passed the bill by 99 votes in favour and 84 against it. It earlier rejected an opposition sponsored motion to send the bill to a Rajya Sabha Select Committee with 100 votes against it as compared to 84 in favour. While BJD supported the legislation, JD-U and AIADMK walked out, lowering the majority mark which normally stands at 121. The ruling NDA has 107 members in the 242-member Rajya Sabha. Also Read – Kamal Nath states that there is no struggle over leader’s post in MP Advertise With Us The NDA was also helped by the absence of some members of SP and BSP as well as those of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and YSR-Congress. The same strategy had helped the government push through the contentious amendment to the Right To Information (RTI) Act last week despite lacking numbers in the Upper House. Once granted assent by the President, the bill will replace an ordinance promulgated last on February 21 to the same effect as the bill. Advertise With Us Replying to a four-and-half-hour debate on the Bill, Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad cited jail provisions in the legislation that ban dowry and multiple marriages by Hindu men to justify the three-year jail term for Muslim men practices triple talaq. To Leader of the Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad, who termed the bill as a politically motivated move to destroy Muslim households with domestic fights, the minister said the Congress leader should think of why his party could never win a majority following the peak of 400-plus seats it won in 1984. He saw the 1986 Shah Bano case, where the Congress did not stick its neck out to support women rights, as the main reason for the downfall of the party. The law, he said, was not being brought due to the Supreme Court ruling of 2017 declaring talaq-e-biddat, commonly referred to as instant triple talaq, unconstitutional. “I am a minister of Narendra Modi government and not Rajiv Gandhi government,” he said citing the Shah Bano case of 1986. He said he cannot leave in lurch women who have been divorced by triple talaq via WhatsApp or other such means. When Muslim world is trying to reform, why can’t a democracy do the same, he said. Trying to shed anti-Muslim image, he said his party gave the nation a President from the same community. On opposition charge of targeting Muslims, he said BJP may be getting a little less votes from the community but it considers them very much a part of the country and works on the principle of ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas, sabka vishwas’. Prasad said the bill should not be seen through a political prism as it is a matter of humanity, woman empowerment and gender equality. “More than 20 Islamic nations have regulated triple talaq,” he said. Azad said the opposition has been forced to vote against the bill after the government did not accept their demand to send it to a select committee and make triple talaq a civil offence. The Triple Talaq bill could not make it through the Upper House earlier this year during the first term of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, although it was passed by Lok Sabha. The Bill was again passed by the Lok Sabha last week amid a walkout by several opposition parties including the Congress and the Trinamool Congress. The opposition parties say in its current form, the proposed law could be misused to harass Muslims and wanted it to be reviewed by a parliamentary committee.last_img read more

Bush say in a joint statement that “America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism and hatred in all forms.”Their comments come a day after President Donald Trump gave weight to the complaints of white nationalists by declaring at a press conference that counterprotesters shared the blame for violence that erupted last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia.The Bushes, both Republicans, say that as they pray for Charlottesville, they’re reminded of “that city’s most prominent citizen in the Declaration of Independence: We are all created equal and endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights.”They’re referring to Thomas Jefferson.___noonThe White House says President Donald Trump and his national security team will discuss South Asia strategy on Friday.The discussions are scheduled to be held at Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland’s Catoctin Mountains.Vice President Mike Pence, who is traveling in Latin America this week, is expected to attend.Trump tweeted earlier Wednesday that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un “made a very wise and well-reasoned decision.” Trump says “the alternative would have been both catastrophic and unacceptable!”Both sides have since backed down after raising the specter of nuclear conflict in a series of combative threats after North Korea’s recent missile tests and threats against Guam, the U.S. territory in the Western Pacific.

Malwarebytes AntiExploit Standalone information

first_imgMalwarebytes Anti-Exploit Standalone information by Martin Brinkmann on December 12, 2016 in Security – 23 commentsMalwarebytes 3.0, released a couple of days ago, marks a big jump from the company’s previous policy of releasing individual security tools.Instead of offering Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Anti-Exploit and Anti-Ransomware as individual downloads and installations, Malwarebytes decided to integrate them all in one product.The new Malwarebytes 3.0 looks on first glance like an upgrade of Anti-Malware, but there are differences.Free users get on-demand scan functionality like before, but access to Anti-Exploit or Anti-Ransomware is only granted for paying customers.The standalone version of Anti-Exploit was offered as a free and paid version, and Anti-Ransomware was only available as a free beta prior to the release.Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Standalone informationMalwarebytes did not only release Malwarebytes 3.0 Free and Premium to the public, it did remove links to Anti-Exploit and Anti-Ransomware standalone versions from its website on top of that.Furthermore, if Malwarebytes 3.0 gets installed on a system, all previous versions of Anti-Malware, Anti-Exploit and Anti-Ransomware get removed in the process.This is the case even if Malwarebytes 3.0 Free is used (which does not support Anti-Exploit and Anti-Ransomware). If Anti-ExploitSome users assumed that this was done to entice upgrades to the premium version of Malwarebytes 3.0.First of all, lets find out if you can run Anti-Exploit standalone next to Malwarebytes 3.0 Free.While Anti-Exploit — Free or Premium — gets removed when you install Malwarebytes 3.0 on your computer, nothing is preventing the installation of the program afterwards.So, all you need to do is find a copy of the last Anti-Exploit installer, and install the program anew after you installed Malwarebytes 3.0 on your computer.You find a download link of the latest build on the official Malwarebytes forum.Please note that the file will be removed eventually.The future of Anti-Exploit standaloneThe Malwarebytes forum is also the place where you get information on the future of a Anti-Exploit standalone version.The company plans to offer a “perpetual beta” version of Anti-Exploit for free.Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit standalone(MBAE) will from now on be offered as a perpetual beta product. The standalone MBAE will incorporate new protection techniques for fine-tuning purposes before they are integrated into the Malwarebytes 3.x product.The idea here is similar to what Microsoft does with its Windows 10 Insider program. Let users test beta versions of a product so that bugs and other issues are discovered before updates make it into the core version.The new Anti-Exploit standalone beta has not been released yet by Malwarebytes, but the previous version installs just fine for the time being (it was released on December 5, 2016).Closing WordsThere you have it. Anti-Exploit standalone is still a thing, but only in form of a beta that will never become a stable version. No word on Anti-Ransomeware standalone at this point in time. I assume you can install the standalone version as well on a system running Malwarebytes 3.0 if you can get hold of a installer.Now You: Did you make the upgrade to Malwarebytes 3.0?

BA to look more like lowcost carrier with removal of reclining seats

first_imgBA to look more like low-cost carrier with removal of reclining seats Tuesday, January 9, 2018 LONDON — British Airways continues to look for ways to cut costs, and next on the chopping block? Reclining seats.According to Fox News, the airline will outfit 35 Airbus A320neos and A321neos with non-reclining seats in economy. The aircraft, which will come into service later this year, are scheduled to fly short-haul flights.A BA spokesman said that the change will “allow us to offer more low fares to customers”, and that the aircraft will still offer perks like at-seat power and, soon to come, onboard Wi-Fi. “The new aircraft will have brand new seats set to a gentle recline to ensure everyone in the cabin enjoys a comfortable journey,” the spokesman said.The move could force BA to change its elite status as it emulates budget airlines. Since Alex Cruz, former CEO of Spanish low-cost carrier Vueling, took over the reins at BA in 2015, the airline has stopped providing free food and drink to passengers in economy on short-haul flights. Even more, it’s been reported that BA is considering halting the sale of duty-free products on short flights, forcing passengers to do their shopping prior to takeoff at airports.
