Do not return home until you’ve been advised that the Evacuation Order has been rescinded or canceled.This map shows all the properties that have been evacuated after the landslide.Community meetings held SaturdaySaturday afternoon Peace River Regional District Board Chair, Peace River North MLA Dan Davies and Prince George, Peace River Northern Rockies MP Bob Zimmer hosted two meetings for residents of the Old Fort. UPDATE as of 9 p.m. – The PRRD has expanded the evacuation order to one more property.  The home at 6786 265 Road is also now under an evacuation order.FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Eight more properties have been placed under an evacuation order due to the Old Fort Landslide.The slide continues to grow with the latest assessment showing cracks have been discovered all the way down to the Peace River. At the meeting in Fort St. John residents expressed their frustrations with the lack of communication since the slide happened one week ago.  While many residents are still living in the Old Fort, others have left and are staying with family and friends in Fort St. John.Brad Sperling is the Chair of the Peace River Regional District, and the District is in charge of dealing with this emergency.  Chair Sperling expressed his frustration that even though the Regional District is in charge, they need to ask for permission from the Province before implementing anything.  “There’s a time-lapse because (Emergency Management B.C.) is not in the PRRD office with our people.   If our people ask for or have to decide something they have to pick up the phone and wait for the response from Emergency Management B.C.”Chair Sperling says the process has to change.  “The process has to change. If the Regional District issues a state of emergency, then Emergency Management B.C. should have personnel on site the next day.”center_img Peace River North MLA Dan Davies says he met with Mike Farnworth the Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General on Thursday and shared gave the minister an update on the situation and invited the Minister to visit the community.  MLA Davies says communication is still an issue. “We have a lot of questions, and the residents have a lot of questions.  There seems to be a communication breakdown, and we have to start improving that.”Water situationThe Peace River Regional District is working to provide potable water to residents of the Old Fort.  The company has started to deploy a water hose down the hill and will be setting up temporary barricades at the bottom and midpoint of the hill.The PRRD is asking that residents not to travel up and down the hill on quads or side by sides while the hose is deployed due to the safety risk to area residents and water company personnel.  For liability reasons and safety reasons, the water company has to stop work anytime someone heads up the hill, and it delays the work by at least 30 minutes.The hope is to have potable water available to the residents of the Old Fort by Sunday.During the meeting on Saturday in Fort St. John Chair Sperling said the PRRD would pay for the water needed by Old Fort residents after Emergency Management B.C. said it would be up to residents of the Old Fort to pay for the water.Alternate Road AccessThe Ministry of Transportation continues to look at alternate access to the Old Fort.  One option is no longer available due to the increased area covered under an evacuation order.  The second to build temporary bridges to a nearby island and then over to Site C is currently being investigated.  There is no timeline on when an alternative route to the community will be created.MLA Dan Davies also mentioned he has asked for permission to use the boat launch at Site C to help decrease the travel time to Fort St. John.  The MLA said he hopes to receive approval and have that in use this week.Gravel PitThe BC Ministry of Energy, Mines & Petroleum Resources has authorized the removal of material from the gravel pit located above the original slide to relieve the weight on top of the slide. This activity is under the direction of a professional geotechnical engineer who is monitoring it for any further movement.The PRRD Emergency Operations Centre has provided the site operator with an entry permit to conduct this work within the evacuation order area based on the conditions set by the Ministry and their geotechnical engineer.Community MeetingThere will be a community meeting on Monday at 11 a.m. at the Stonebridge Hotel.  MLA Davies says there will be an official from Emergency Management B.C. at the meeting. That person should have more information about the size of the slide and what will happen next.Residents of the Old Fort are welcome to attend the meeting in Fort St. John.  The meeting will also be streamed live on the Peace River Regional District’s website at www.prrd.bc.ca, and it will also be streamed live on the Energeticcity.ca Facebook page.last_img read more

Rabat – The terrorist organization the Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS or ISIL, has lost 20 percent of its military capabilities since the pilots of the US-led coalition have started carrying out airstrikes on the group’s strongholds, General Mansour Al-Jabour, head of the Jordanian Royal Air Force, said in a press conference on Sunday.Al -Jabour said that Jordanian pilots have flown 946 sorties, nearly 20 percent of the total sorties carried out by the U.S-led coalition against the so-called Islamic State in Syria to date.The sorties have resulted in the “degrading” of nearly 20 percent of the group’s military capabilities, he said.  Al Jabour said that coalition planes have flown 5,500 sorties since the beginning of the air campaign, including 2,000 reconnaissance flights. The general said about 7,000 Islamic State group militants have been killed since the beginning of the coalition airstrikes.Jordanian pilots have carried out intensified aerial bombardment against IS fighters following the brutal execution of a Jordanian pilot.Jordan has launched 56 airstrikes against the Islamic State as part of a three-day offensive aimed at targeting weapons depots, training centers and military barracks after the group released a video last week showing the execution by immolation of 26-year-old pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh. read more

Rafael Reif called the gift “transformative.”“As MIT strives to work for the betterment of humankind, Sam’s generosity dramatically increases our capacity to create and inspire far-reaching positive change,” Reif said.In recognition of Lee’s substantial and ongoing commitment, Building 9, home to the MIT Center for Real Estate, will be named the Samuel Tak Lee Building.After graduating from MIT, Lee joined Prudential Enterprise, a Hong Kong-based real estate company founded by his father and a cousin. Under Lee’s leadership, Prudential has grown into a multinational firm with significant holdings in Hong Kong, England, Japan, Switzerland, and Singapore. by The Associated Press Posted Jan 8, 2015 5:40 am MDT read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Development Ministry appears determined to abolish the anachronistic regulations that distort competition and keep retail prices at high levels, even if that provokes a clash with professional groups.“We are not here to serve any sector, but to protect the defenseless citizens. There will be no exemption to that. We will not take a single step back from that line,” a top ministry official stressed in response to the strong reaction from tradesmen, bakers and pharmacists to the proposals by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).In a report on the competition conditions observed in retail, tourism, construction materials and food processing, the OECD identified 555 outmoded regulations, which the government is now eager to do away with. These market distortions concern legal clauses that do not allow for a drop in prices of commodities such as bread, milk, laundry detergents, drugs, books and fuel, among others.The report, which the organization’s head Angel Gurria will officially present in Athens on November 27, was also discussed at a meeting between representatives of the country’s creditors and the ministry’s leadership on Monday. Ministry sources said after the meeting that the majority of the OECD proposals are aimed at more active protection of consumers; they will form the blueprint for specific legislative initiatives in January 2014.Among the OECD proposals are the sale of bread by the kilo, the abolition of a set shelf life for fresh milk, the abolition of all parafiscal charges, the liberalization of prices of all nonprescripted drugs and food supplements, lifting restrictions on the sale of heating oil, and the appointment of a single food monitoring authority to replace the 11 that exist today.It is estimated that applying the OECD proposals to boost competition would raise state revenues by about 5 billion euros per year. This estimate is one of the government’s assets in its current negotiations with its creditors.last_img read more

first_imgHémogramme : définition, comment cela se passe, y a-t-il des risques ?L’hémogramme ou hématogramme est l’un des examens sanguins les plus souvent prescrits en France. Il permet de quantifier numériquement les différents constituants cellulaires qui composent le sang.Qu’est-ce que l’hémogramme ?Le sang est composé de différents éléments :- les hématies (globules rouges) doivent être comprises entre 4,5 et 5,5 millions/mm3. Elles renferment, notamment, l’hémoglobine, qui est la protéine responsable de l’acheminement de l’oxygène. – les leucocytes (globules blancs) doivent être compris entre 4 000 et 10 000 globules blanc/mm3. Ils servent principalement à protéger l’organisme contre les attaques pathogènes (virus, bactéries, champignons…). – lesplaquettes sanguines doivent être comprises entre 150 000 et 450 000/mm3. Elles jouent un rôle majeur dans le processus de la coagulation sanguine. L’évaluation de ces différents paramètres sanguins apporte des informations précieuses sur l’état de santé global d’un patient puisqu’ils permettent, entre autres, de détecter des anémies ou la présence d’infections. Généralement, l’hémogramme s’inscrit dans le cadre de la Numération de la Formule Sanguine qui, elle, analyse qualitativement les différents composants sanguins.Comment se passe l’examen ?L’hémogramme doit faire l’objet d’une prescription médicale. L’examen est généralement pratiqué dans un laboratoire d’analyses en ville. Il peut également être réalisé à l’hôpital dans le cadre, par exemple, d’un bilan pré-opératoire. Le prélèvement sanguin est effectué par prise de sang. Environ 5 millilitres de sang veineux sont ainsi ponctionnés dans le pli du coude et sont conservés dans un tube stérile contenant un anticoagulant. S’il n’est pas impératif, le jeûne est tout de même conseillé pour cet examen sanguin. Les résultats sont communiqués au patient dans les 24 h. En fonction des résultats obtenus, le médecin pourra éventuellement préconiser d’autres examens afin d’affiner son diagnostic. En effet, l’hémogramme constitue un examen d’exploration et non de diagnostic.Hémogramme : quels sont les risques et contre-indications ?À lire aussiACC (anticoagulants circulants) : définition, rôle, comment analyser les résultats ?Il n’existe pas de réelles contre-indications à la réalisation d’un hémogramme. Néanmoins, il faudra attendre un certain temps avant de réaliser cet examen après avoir subi une transfusion sanguine. En outre, la formation d’un petit hématome est susceptible de survenir au terme du prélèvement. Les principaux risques proviennent principalement des résultats obtenus. Ainsi, certaines valeurs peuvent, en effet, révéler la présence d’une pathologie. Ainsi, la baisse anormale du nombre de globules rouges peut conduire au diagnostic d’une anémie qu’il conviendra de bilanter afin d’en connaître l’origine (centrale ou périphérique). On parlera de thrombopénie en présence d’une diminution du nombre de plaquettes, d’hypoleucocytose en cas de diminution du nombre de globules blancs ou encore de polyglobulie lorsque le nombre de globules rouges est supérieur aux valeurs normales indicatives.Le 2 août 2017 à 12:54 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_img Top Movie and TV Trailers You Might Have Missed This WeekAmerican Horror Story Takes Us Back to the Days of Witches and Warlocks Stay on target We’ve reached the end of the seventh season of American Horror Story. Finally. I don’t remember a season of television I wished would end as much as this one. It wasn’t even all bad. Sure, the first four episodes were a boring mess, but it surprisingly turned things around after that. It went on a small hot streak, producing decent episode after decent episode. The problem was it never got good enough, or stayed good long enough, to make me feel like it was all worth the investment. Despite some great scares in the middle there, and some truly interesting looks into the makings of historic cults, there was never a clear sense of where it all was going. I’m not saying I needed everything explained to me up front. I just wanted a clear sense that the show itself had a direction in mind for it’s on story. Even when this season was good, I never got that.The finale opens in the distant future of 2018. Kai is in a federal prison, and he’s building up his cult inside. The whole pinky power thing was always ridiculous. It never carried the weight the show so clearly wanted it to have. Starting off an episode with two of them in the first five minutes didn’t inspire a ton of confidence in the rest of it. The second pinky power scene has Kai’s prospective new recruit asking how he got caught. Why thank you, exposition man! Now we can go back to the present and find out what happened after the end of last week’s episode.Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson (Photo via FX)Basically, Ally found out Speedwagon has been working with the state police and recording (but not transmitting) everything going on in the cult. Since she has bigger designs in mind, she stabs him and presents the recorder to Kai to make him think the rat has been dealt with. Also to make him feel bad about killing Winter. Conniving Ally is far and away the best part of this last half of the season. We find out later that she’s been working with the FBI since she was institutionalized, which explains why she didn’t kill the guy when she had a million chances. Fine. Kai announces that the Night of 1000 Tates has been reduced to night of 100 Tates because of a lack of available pregnant women. We get a scene where Kai’s army practices by stabbing watermelons, which isn’t scary so much as it it’s just gross. It’s not until they’re about to go through with it that Ally decides enough is enough and sends in the FBI. That’s how Kai got to jail.I spent most of the episode waiting for it to get scary. Come on, this is the final hour of American HORROR Story, is it too much to ask that it horrify me? Instead, we get more political drama because we certainly needed more of that. From prison, Kai calls Ally to threaten her because he just found out that Ozy isn’t his son after all. That pushes her to step into the media spotlight and run for Senate. The wasted potential here is astounding. We know Kai is amassing followers inside the prison. He even appears to have one of the guards on his side. He can escape easily, and come after Ally at any time. This would be a great setup for a paranoid thriller. Have Ally start to suspect everything and everyone around her again, but this time have a good reason for it. Scare us with the notion that Kai could be anywhere at any time. Why am I writing a better ending for this season?Evan Peters (Photo via FX)Instead, the episode continues to focus on her campaign for senate. Even the news that Kai has apparently died in prison (he killed his new recruit and mutilated his face to make it look like it could be him,) there’s no sense of dread or fear. When he shows up during Ally’s debate, it’s expected. The scene isn’t even all that tense. Nobody tries to go after him. Everyone just ducks behind their chairs and stays silent. It’s a scene of Kai pointing a gun at Ally and Ally staring him down. It would be cool if the moment was at all earned. There is a reason for Ally’s confidence, but we don’t find out what it is until after Kai pulls the trigger and the gun is revealed to be unloaded. It turns out, Ally knew about Kai’s activities in the prison. She recruited the guard who we thought was on Kai’s side. The whole thing was planned. Even Beverly was in on it too, as she walks out onstage to finally put a bullet in Kai’s head and the season.It’s a way better ending than AHS: Cult ever deserved. That’s the frustrating part. It’s all directed so well, written so well, acted so well, it almost makes you forget the boring hour-long political soap that came before it. The episode, and as a result the season, ends with an admittedly cool magic trick that it did nothing to earn. The reveal should have been a moment of awe and relief. Instead, it’s a moment of, “oh, that’s kinda cool, I guess.” After a season as rocky as this one, I can’t ask for much more, but that doesn’t make the lackluster finale go down any better.Sarah Paulson (Photo via FX)Even the twist ending falls flat, despite a well-done scene preceding it. After winning her election, Ally tucks Oz into bed. The way their dialog is written and the way the scene is shot immediately starts setting off alarm bells. Something is very wrong. As Ally keeps talking the sense of dread grows. It’s enough to make you ask, where was this all season? The twist is that Ally has started her own cult. It’s a women’s cult this time. They’re going to create a new world where Ozy can grow up to be better than the men who came before him. All we know for sure about Ally’s cult is that they wear green robes. I guess that’s supposed to mean she’s revived SCUM, but it’s been so long since we’ve seen that plotline, I don’t know how the show expected us to make that connection. How did Ally know about SCUM anyway? She wasn’t part of that. Her only interaction with Bebe Babbitt was shooting her in the head. It’s a shame too, Ally starting a cult could have been a great ending if it had been set up or hinted at in any way.Oh, and all those claims that this season would be more deeply connected to past seasons turned out to be complete lies. We got a brief appearance from Twisty early on and a mention of Lana Winters in the finale. They couldn’t even be bothered to give us Sarah Paulson interviewing herself. God, what a waste this season was.The finale, like the whole season, felt like nobody had a great handle on the story. It’s like they started with a  list of cool things they wanted to do and worried about how to connect them all later. As a result, the entire season never felt like it knew where it was going. It was rarely able to build effective scares, and even when it did, they didn’t last long. Even the truly enjoyable episodes couldn’t save this season from being a giant mess. What good moments existed were dragged down by toothless election drama. All attempts at political commentary felt like a random collection of buzzwords pulled from liberal and conservative Twitter. The season was aimless, haphazard and ended up in a decent place despite itself. I can at least appreciate a competent ending even if it’s completely unearned. And hey, it’s an ending.It means American Horror Story: Cult is over. That’s a definite point in it’s favor.center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

She said when the idea was brought up “at a staff level,” the administration had not moved forward with it because “logistically, there were a lot of challenges and it probably didn’t make sense to move forward,” but was now under consideration again.“The President heard the idea, he likes it, so — well, we’re looking to see if there are options that make it possible and doing a full and thorough and extensive review,” Sanders said.Trump confirmed on Friday that his administration was looking at the idea of releasing immigrants into so-called sanctuary cities in part to retaliate against Democrats, undercutting earlier denials from his own administration officials.The term “sanctuary city” is a broad term generally taken to refer to locales that have limited cooperation with federal immigration enforcement, and many of the largest cities in the country have such policies in place.Trump has long railed against “sanctuary” policies, and in response to reports of the latest considered moves, a spokeswoman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused the Trump administration of “using human beings — including little children — as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants.” KUSI Newsroom Updated: 5:39 PMlast_img read more

Gas and conflict dont mix

first_imgBy Jean ChristouCYPRUS’ HYDROCARBONS future could end up being less lucrative without a political settlement, UN Special Adviser Espen Barth Eide warned in an interview with the Sunday Mail.After a week of contacts on the island, the Norwegian diplomat, who comes from a country known for its well-managed oil wealth, said he had looked deeply into the reality of the island’s gas prospects with and without a Cyprus settlement.“There are not enormous quantities. It is significant but it is quite expensive to get hold of because it’s very deep so it requires expensive technology and you have to build many places because it’s compartmentalised, which means production and exploration costs are high,” he said.“It will be a relatively expensive gas to produce.”Eide said there was already a lot of natural gas on the global market and current prices were quite low since the advent of fracking “which means the margin isn’t very high”. An international company looking at Cyprus would see political conflict and expensive gas ‘and not very much gas’ either. “I am not convinced they would say ‘let’s go for Cyprus’,” he said.Statistically, any country that discovers hydrocarbons that can go either of two ways – the road to mismanagement and/or political conflict, or they can do it right, he said. Successful oil-rich countries were successful because they established clear rules and regulations and avoided political conflict, he said.“And Cyprus is now exactly at the point where you have to choose between these two destinies. There is no middle ground. It will either take you into much more trouble and a little bit of income, or it will take you to a balanced politically viable solution or any other agreed solution, and more wealth,” he said.“I would think about how smart it is to perpetuate the conflict just as you’re moving into an oil and gas economy… it sounds harsh but I’m saying this thing will either get better soon or significantly worse because that’s what history tells us.”Eide has found his initial efforts to facilitate a Cyprus solution stymied by the Greek Cypriot side’s withdrawal from the negotiations in October in response to incursions by the Turkish seismic vessel Barbaros into Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone. President Nicos Anastasiades has said he would not even discuss going back to the table while the Barbaros remains, while Turkey and the Turkish Cypriot side want hydrocarbons on the table before halting their explorations.Both sides rejected Eide’s proposal, which he said he thought was quite good but was misunderstood.It involved creating a panel of talking heads to discuss the future of hydrocarbons ahead of a settlement but did not involve negotiations or co-decisions.“It was taking the starting point that the Greek Cypriots do not want in any way to negotiate hydrocarbons before a solution, so my proposal was totally consistent with that,” he said.The panel’s ideas would not be part of a settlement but an inspiration for the post-settlement management of resources “because this has to happen anyway”, and both sides were well aware of it.“My sense is that it was probably too much for the Greek Cypriot side. I was not suggesting they stop now. That was explicit,” he said. The Turkish Cypriots didn’t like it because they wanted something “much more”, to be part of the current decision-making.“So I don’t really understand… in the sense since the proposal was closer to the Greek Cypriot side than the Turkish Cypriot side, I was kind of less surprised by the rejection in the north than here,” he said.“But what I told both leaders now, and I also warned them… for a time I am not coming up with another plan. Now it’s up to them. They know how to propose to me what do to.”Many Greek Cypriots feel it is unfair that the breakaway state in the north should now claim a share of the wealth clearly located off the southern coast, and believe that if the situation were reversed the Turkish Cypriots would not even consider sharing.Eide was diplomatic, saying a lot of bad things had happened in Cyprus in the past. Grave mistakes were made on both sides “not necessarily in equal proportion” which had created a lot of unnecessary suffering, he said, but dwelling on it would not take Cyprus forward.Of all the differences involved in the Cyprus issue, hydrocarbons has not been one of them, and everything to do with the topic rested with the future federal state as already agreed by the sides.“Normally I would say that if you agree on the future but not on the present, then let’s move forward, because then we get to the future. But that’s clearly not what’s happening here,” he said.But he believes the two sides will find their way back to the table within a reasonable period though he could not say when, other than “this winter”. The leaders wanted to meet but did not know how because a circumstance had been created which needed to be changed.Eide said the arguments both sides use were exactly the same “with an alternative cast”.“My answer to both sides is if you really want to know if the other side is ready to play the game and deliver something, you have to see that at the table,” said Eide. “You will not find out by shouting with a megaphone over the Green Line.”The only way back now was if both sides were willing to do something “where of course the presence of the Barbaros is one of the things”.If that happens, Eide said it could easily be a matter of months rather than years to reach a solution. There were no advantages to postponing. His approach would be systematic, starting with the “soft differences” and working their way to the hard-core ones, which could only be in the form of trade-offs.“The process of getting there will hopefully create trust because you see that you’re ticking off things,” he said.As to whether or not he would be willing to ‘bang heads’ – to use a phrase from a couple of his predecessors – Eide said he could be both mild and tough when necessary.In the meantime, with little negotiating to do, he has spent his week encouraging ordinary Cypriots not to leave everything to the political class.“In a sense the non-solution of the Cyprus problem is such an integral part of political life that it’s almost defining leaders,” he said. Political figures on both sides might not be able to untangle themselves from their long-held positions without input from broader Cypriot society. Ordinary Cypriots needed to ask themselves what they wanted – to live with each other or divorce – “which I would clearly not want but of course it’s possible”.Having said that, Eide was clear his mandate was to help find a unified solution and the phrase that dare not speak its name ‘a two-state solution’ was not part of that. He was not here to find just “any solution”, though if any country decided peacefully to part, the international community would likely not prevent it, he said.Eide believes he could very well be the last negotiator for Cyprus one way or the other but is in it for the duration.“I have not given myself a time limit. I am personally not in a hurry,” he said. “I dare to say and it’s a very dangerous statement which I know will be used against me if I am wrong, but I am saying humbly and hoping not to be misunderstood, but I think I will be the last negotiator.”He hopes that meant a solution but the alternative was that the UN and Cypriots themselves would give up.“Sometimes certain things get better by waiting but while a lot of people seem to think you’re in the middle of a big drama… I’ve seen bigger dramas. No one is dying which… means things can be repaired.” It was all very civilised compared to other conflicts in that the two sides in Cyprus may disagree “but they agree to disagree”.As a challenge for a seasoned diplomat on a scale of one to ten, Eide didn’t even blink before saying Cyprus was a 6.5. “I would give it a three on complexity but maybe an eight on the factor which is… the comfort in the non-solution.”You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementBad Digestion Slowing You Down?
