Seven-year-old Mayra Gillis met her inspiration, Winter the Dolphin, featured in the movies Dolphin Tale and Dolphin Tale 2, at Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) on Sunday.Mayra Gillis meets Winter and Hope the dolphins with the cast of the Dolphin Tale moviesRead about Winter’s story at www.SeeWinter.com. Movie stars Nathan Gamble, who plays Sawyer in the movies, and Austin Highsmith, who plays Phoebe, Winter’s Animal Care Provider, surprised Mayra during her encounter with the dolphins Winter and Hope at CMA.Mayra had a brain bleed when she was just two days old which has affected her mobility and fine gross motor skills. When Mayra watched the Dolphin Tale movies it inspired her to work harder on her mobility, wear her day leg braces and her night time casts. When Mayra saw there is an animal that requires a prosthetic to be able to swim, it made her realize she isn’t alone.“Millions of kids worldwide have had their lives positively impacted by the mantra of ‘If Winter Can, I Can.’” Says David Yates CEO of Clearwater Marine Aquarium. “We were inspired by Myra’s attitude of never giving up and happy she could meet Winter. “The actors who played Sawyer (Nathan Gamble), Hazel (Cozi Zuehlsdorff) and Phoebe (Austin Highsmith) in the Dolphin Tale movies will be at Clearwater Marine Aquarium from July 22-29 to meet with fans.

Rabat – HRW said that it filed its request with Ariel Lijo, a federal judge in Argentina, on Monday.The request might lead MbS to change his plans regarding attending the G20 summit, which started on Friday, November 23 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.Later this week, world leaders, including the Saudi crown prince, are expected to convene at the international summit. The request also aims to investigate bin Salman’s alleged involvement in the torture and murder of prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October.Read Also: King Mohammed VI Snubs Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman“We submitted this info to Argentine prosecutors with the hopes they will investigate MbS’ complicity and responsibility for possible war crimes in Yemen, as well as the torture of civilians, including Jamal Khashoggi,” said HRW’s Middle East and North Africa director Sahara Leah Whiston.She told Al Jazeera that “there’s an extremely strong basis for Argentina to closely examine a very broad record of documentation and facts.”Argentina has not issued any official comment on HRW’s request.The Saudi crown prince is also facing pressure from different countries that Riyadh announced as part of bin Salman’s world tour.Read Also: MBS and MBZ Partying in UAE Amid Khashoggi’s FalloutIn Tunisia, activists protested in the capital on Monday to protest against MbS’ intention to visit the African country.Bin Salman is expected to arrive in Tunisia this afternoon. He also visited Egypt on Monday, where he held talks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-SisiIn their protests, activists presented banners saying that the crown prince is not welcome in their country.The same anti-MbS sentiments were shared by Algerian politicians. On November 24, the President of Algerian Islamist party Society for Peace (MSP), Abderrazak Makri, said that MbS is seeking to “hide his role” in Khashoggi’s murder.
“If it’s more difficult for them to liquidate, they just don’t want that on their books,” says Dawson.Such strict policies can have some inadvertent side effects, says Mark. For example, even though most provinces require sellers to disclose if a property was formerly a grow-op, some may not disclose that, he says.From brewery to grow-op to custody battle: Crown battling for $8.9M former Molson plant siteBaron the police dog helps Mounties find three men hiding in walls of B.C. grow-op“I’m sure there are many deals that go undetected because of people withholding that information,” says Mark. “There are probably people out there living in a former grow-op that don’t even know it.” Mark of Spin Mortgage recalls one loan application that went up in smoke because the disclosure statement said a single marijuana plant had been found in the closet. The house had not undergone any grow-op related modifications, he says.“At the end of the day it comes down to the bank’s discretion,” says Mark. “It can be unfair in certain circumstances.”Brokers say the banks are concerned that stigma surrounding the home’s criminal past will reduce its resale value, making it difficult for the bank to recoup its investment if the borrower defaults on the loan.Colleen De Neve/Calgary Herald At first glance, the mid-century, three-level Winnipeg home was everything that Sarah Fehr and her fiancée had been looking for.It was located in the right neighbourhood, had a double garage and the backyard was spacious enough for the couple’s two pugs to frolic in.Perhaps most importantly, it was reasonably priced.[np_storybar title=”B.C.’s weed problem: Medical pot grow-ops stink, residents say” link=”http://news.nationalpost.com/news/canada/b-c-s-weed-problem-medical-marijuana-grow-ops-stink-residents-say”%5DSeveral Metro Vancouver municipalities are having to deal with a crop of complaints from residents over the smell from medical marijuana-growing operations. Read on [/np_storybar]However, a quick Google search revealed the home’s shadowy past: it had been busted several years earlier for housing a marijuana grow operation.While former grow ops may seem like a good deal to some buyers, experts caution that banks and insurers are increasingly shying away from these properties — even after all of the necessary remediation has been done.“It’s always been strict, but it was a lot looser four or five years ago,” says Jeff Mark, co-founder of broker Spin Mortgage, adding that only credit unions and subprime lenders are willing to finance these homes, often at higher rates than those offered by the banks.Running a grow-op in a residential home can cause extensive damage that may be pricey to remedy.High levels of moisture can cause mould to grow in the walls. Pesticides and other chemicals can seep into carpets and walls and contaminate the air. Even the home’s structural integrity and electrical wiring may be compromised. Before a lender will agree to mortgage a former grow op, a battery of costly tests must be performed to ensure it is inhabitable.If it’s more difficult for them to liquidate, they just don’t want that on their booksFortunately in Fehr’s case, the seller had already performed most of those tests, and the local credit union was willing to provide a mortgage. But finding insurance proved to be a headache, says Fehr. “There were insurers who flat out said, ‘No, we will not touch a grow-op,”‘ says Fehr.Eventually, after jumping through all of the regulatory hoops, the couple managed to close the deal and take possession of the home late last year.But brokers say the process can be so arduous that many buyers throw in the towel, adding that in an increasing number of cases, even a single marijuana plant is enough to stigmatize a home.“The problem is that everything gets painted with the same brush,” says Scott Dawson, a British Columbia-based mortgage broker with Verico Paragon Elite Lending. “Whether there’s one plant or a number of plants, it’s all kind of lumped in together as a grow-op.”THE CANADIAN PRESS/John Woods

G4S Utility Services and POD Point, the electric vehicle charging specialists, have been awarded a two year contract by One North East to supply and install Smart Metres and Electric Vehicle charging points in the North East of England.The scheme, part of the region’s ‘Charge your Car’ project, is sponsored by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and will see up to 1,000 charging points in place by March 2013 across the region, from Northumberland to County Durham. As well as providing the Smart Metering technology and infrastructure, the project will assess data about the impact of plug-in vehicles on energy use and the electricity distribution network.The partnership with POD Point means G4S will provide installation and maintenance expertise, with POD Point providing hi-tech home charging points. A unique interface has been developed by the two companies to monitor the effects on energy usage of innovative tariff structures – fundamental in the development of smart grid responses needed to accompany the widespread introduction of plug-in vehicles.“G4S Utility Services and POD Point provide a partnership of the highest calibre,” said Kim Challis, Managing Director from G4S Utility Services. “G4S is the leading provider of smart metering solutions in the UK and we are delighted to be able to bring our Smart metering expertise to the Electric Vehicle industry. Working together with POD Point, the leading supplier of electric vehicle charging solutions, we are able to combine our excellence and produce a robust solution that meets the requirements of this exciting project.”“This project addresses a topic that POD Point is actively involved with – investigating the impact on the grid of significant numbers of EVs, and how this impact can be reduced and potentially neutralised with innovative charging and smart meter technologies,” said Erik Fairbairn, Chief Executive of POD Point. “The partnership with G4S and ONE North East is an exciting opportunity for us to demonstrate the huge potential of the technology, and how essential it will become as EV numbers increase.”The UK must ensure 20 per cent of all cars are electric by 2020 in order to comply with EU environmental targets. OLEV predicts that up to 100,000 charging points will need to be installed nationally over the next four years, at an estimated cost of £300million.SMMT’s Electric Vehicle Guide 2011 can be downloaded here.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)
As several hundred magazine executives gathered at MPA’s 2011 American Magazine Conference in New York last month to hear speakers dissect social media, tablets and e-commerce, Scott Galloway, New York University Professor of marketing and founder of L2 Digital Think Tank—authors of the Digital IQ Index—struck a nerve with his frank dressing down of publishers’ social media strategies. “About 19 percent of our budgets are now going to digital,” he said to the audience. “But 40 percent of media consumption for those under 40 is digital based.”Galloway said the magazine industry is doing itself a disservice by not aggressively tapping into the benefits of the digital space and in particular Facebook. “The reason you’re having trouble making money is because you’re not relevant—profits are an indicator of relevance,” he said, adding, “Not a brand in here is managing capital allocation correctly in relation to Facebook.” The professor said that Facebook is the number one medium in every market and that magazine professionals need to view the social media platform as a marketplace, citing statistics that reveal that 50 percent of people on Facebook make at least $50,000 a year and that 38 percent of all online referral traffic now originates from Facebook. “The new young affluent want innovation from brands,” he said. “Right now, social media is the least expensive way to do that.”Galloway turned to fashion company Burberry to make his point. The British based clothing company has over 8.6 million “likes” on Facebook, while the internationally recognized women’s magazine Cosmopolitan has only 1.1 million.
The flood situation has worsened in Lalmonirhat, Sylhet, Sherpur, Bogura, Netrakona, Habiganj and Rangpur districts due to heavy rains and onrush of water from the upstream, rendering many people homeless, reports UNB.In Lalmonirhat, 25,000 families remained marooned as many villages in five upazilas of the district went under water with the Teesta and Dharla continuing to swell.The Teesta river was flowing 25cm above the danger level at Doani point while 52.85cm at Dalia point and 17cm at Kulaghat point on Friday morning, said deputy divisional engineer of Water Development Board at Dalia Hafizur Rahman.He said the Dharla river was flowing 17cm above the danger level at Kulaghat point.Embankments at Mohiskhocha in Aditmari upazila and Dhubni in Hatibanda upazila broke down following gushing water of the Teesta. Besides, the flood snapped communications in many areas as roads went under water.The flood-affected unions in the five upazilas include Dahagram, Saniazan, Goddimari, Sindurna, Patikapara, Dauabari, Singimari, Bhotmari, Kakina, Mohishkhocha, Khuniyagachh, Rajpur, Gokunda, Kulaghata and Mogalhat.The victims alleged that they were leading a miserable life for the last three days for want of any relief from the government.Khadem Ali of Chhoyani village in Goddimari said they were yet to get any relief from anyone.Deputy commissioner Abu Jafar visited several flood-hit areas and allocated 68 tonnes of rice for the victims.In Rangpur, some 5,000 families were marooned as the swelling Teesta inundated chars and low-lying areas in Gangachhara upazila.Floodwater inundated villages under Lakshmitary, Kolkond, Mornia, Gojghonta, Nohali, Alambiditor and Sadar unions of the upazila.The shortage of food and drinking water mounted the sufferings of the flood victims, said locals.The Teesta was flowing 22 cm above the danger level at Kaunia point in Kaunia on Friday, said the local WDB officials.The deputy commissioner of Rangpur Asib Ahasan who visited the flood-affected areas in Lakshmitary union assured the flood victims of quickly assistance.Gangachhara UNO Taslim Begum said chars and low-lying areas of Lakshmitary, Gojghonta and Alambiditor unions were inundated by floodwater, rendering some 1000 families marooned.Dry food was distributed among 850 flood victims on behalf of the upazila administration, she said, adding that they were making a list of the affected people.Meanwhile, the authorities concerned urged people living by the riverbanks to take shelter in safe places.In Sylhet, several thousand people of 100 villages under six upazilas remained marooned after torrential rains over the last few days led to the flooding in Companiganj, Gowainghat, Jaintiapur, Kanaighat, Fenchuganj and Balaganj.Meanwhile, the flood forced over 100 schools in the upazilas to suspend academic activities.Several thousand workers remained unemployed after stone quarries in Bholaganj, Dhalai, Bihchanakandi and Jaflong were shut down temporarily following the flood.Campaniganj Upazila Nirbahi Officer Bijen Banerjee said they visited different flood-affected villages and prepared all the cyclone centres in upazila to face the situation.The upazila priashad is also ready to face the flood while a medical team has been formed to serve the affected people, he said.Gowainghat UNO Bishwajit Kumar Paul said following the rise in water in different areas, they contacted the local relief and disaster management committee. “All union parishad chairmen were directed to submit reports on the flood condition. Measures will be taken according to the reports.”According to the WDB control room in Sylhet, the Surma was flowing 111 cm above the danger level in Kanaigaht while 36 cm above the red mark in the city, the Kushiara was flowing 123 cm above the danger level at Shewla while 69 cm at Amolshid and the Sari River was flowing 20 cm above the danger level.WDB executive engineer Muhammad Shahiduzzaman said all the rivers here were flowing above the danger levels.Rain is likely to continue for the next 24 hours according to the Met office, he said, adding that the flood condition might worsen further in the next few hours.UNB’s Sherpur correspondent reports: The flood situation in Jhenaigati upazila deteriorated on Friday due to the rise in the water level of the Mrigi river.The erosion by the river in Nakla upazila has also turned serious as many dwelling houses went into it. Nakla Upazila Nirbahi Officer Md Jahidur Rahman visited the affected areas and instructed the locals to remain alert.At least 40 villages in five unions in Jhenaigati were submerged by floodwater, UNO Rubel Mahmud said.In Netrakona, 15 unions of Durgapur, Barhatta and Kalmakanda upazilas were flooded due to heavy rains and onrush of water from the upstream, leaving at least 50,000 people with nowhere to go.Water entered over 100 schools in the three upazilas while several local bazaars in Pachgaon, Lengura, Borokhapon and Charalkona were submerged by floodwater.Netrakona DC Mainul Islam said 20 tonnes of relief were allocated for the flood victims of Kalmakanda and Durgapur.In Bogura, although the Jamuna river was flowing one metre below the red sign, many areas of six unions in Sariakandi upazila were flooded following incessant rains and hilly onrush.Aush paddy, aman seedbeds and vegetables were damaged due to the flood.Locals said houses were being eroded by the mighty river at Teligari and Shimuldair villages.UNB’s Habiganj correspondent reports: The Kushiara river was flowing 34 cm above the danger level in Nabiganj of the district.The river water is only one feet beneath the river protection embankment at Parkul, posing threat to Bibiyana Power Plant.The local WDB office fears that the power plant might be affected if the water level continues to rise.However, the WDB executive engineer said they were trying to protect the dam placing sand bags.Meanwhile, state minister for disaster management and relief Md Enamur Rahman on Friday said 17,550 tonnes of rice and Tk 295 million have been allocated to face the flood situation in all the 64 districts.The ministry has taken all necessary measures for disaster management in the flood-hit districts, he said while addressing an Inter-Ministerial Disaster Management Committee meeting at the Secretariat.Enamur Rahman said 26 points have been identified as very risky while 602 others as risky in northern, northeastern and southeastern regions.He said 200 tonnes of rice were sent to the flood-hit areas in the first phase and another 300 tonnes in the second phase.The state minister further said 2,000 packets of dry food were sent to each district while several medical teams are on the field to tackle water-borne diseases.Deputy commissioners, Upazila Nirbahi Officers and other officers concerned were monitoring the flood situation under the central control room at the disaster management and relief ministry, he said.
A team of researchers with members affiliated with several institutions in the U.S. and China has found two stalagmites that offer a way to improve the accuracy of the carbon-14 dating technique. In their paper published in the journal Science, the group describes the stalagmites and their study of them. Humans settled, set fire to Madagascar’s forests 1,000 years ago © 2018 Science X Network Credit: CC0 Public Domain Citation: Two stalagmites found in Chinese cave offer a way to improve accuracy of carbon-14 dating (2018, December 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-12-stalagmites-chinese-cave-accuracy-carbon-.html The carbon-14 dating technique has been the go-to dating technique for archaeologist since the 1950s—in recent years, it has become an important tool for use in measuring climate change, as well. But the technique has always suffered from one fatal flaw—its accuracy depends on a strong record of atmospheric carbon ratios (carbon-12 to carbon-14) for the time period involved. For recent years, this has not been a problem, of course. But the technique is less precise for dating older objects. Scientists have used tree rings (both preserved and fossilized) and coral reefs as a way to measure ratios in given time periods, but such techniques begin to suffer going back tens of thousands of years. In this new effort, the researchers report on the finding of two stalagmites in a Chinese cave that offer an accurate measure of such ratios going back approximately 54,000 years. The half-life of carbon-14 is 5,370 years.Stalagmites are columns formed by mineral-bearing water dripping on the floors of caves over thousands of years—as a drop evaporates, it leaves behind a residual minerals—over time, they grow, forming tall columns. The stalagmites in China were found in Hulu Cave and they offer a continuous record of atmospheric carbon ratios.To retrieve the carbon ratio data, the researchers used an isotopic dating technique called thorium-230 dating. They used it on hundreds of very thin layers in the stalagmites—each offered a ratio for a given time in history. The results represent what they describe as an unprecedented baseline, offering a means for improving the accuracy of a valuable dating tool. In the future, archaeologists will be able to provide more accurate estimates for organic objects that are newly excavated, as well as for those that have already been found.
