In 2016 the PLP enacted The Grand Bahama (Port Area) Investment Incentives Act, but failed to bring the regulations fully into effect.   The Act did nothing to stimulate investment by current licencees nor did it give future potential investors confidence to invest in Grand Bahama.   The Act was discriminatory in nature in that The PLP gave a blanket tax exemption to the Grand Bahama Port Authority and all of Hutchinson Whampoa’s Companies for a period of twenty years while at the same time denying the same exemption to the struggling Bahamian licensees of the Grand Bahama Port Authority who were required to apply through a complicated, non-transparent process to a single Minister.1.The PLP left in place a process which disadvantaged Bahamian liscensees by imposing extra burden on Bahamian licensees as well as creating uncertainty as there were no specific criteria which once met will give certainty of the grant of the concessions.It was clear from the Grand Bahama private sector that the PLP’s Act instead of providing Freeport with inducements caused a disincentive in 3 foreign investment and defeated the main objective of encouraging and facilitating further development and employment. In May the people of The Bahamian people gave the Free National Movement the mandate to repeal this job killing piece of legislation and replace it with legislation which will create jobs and opportunities in Grand BahamaThe new draft bill does exactly that. It removes discriminatory practices and levels the playing field for all commercial enterprises in Freeport and contrary to the PLP assertion,It does not affect the incentives granted to the Grand Bahama Port Authority by the PLP nor does it take away any obligations which the GB Port Authority must meet as the PLP says but rather the new bill strengthens the Governments position to enforce the obligations of the GBPA.The existing Memorandum of Understanding signed between the GBPA and the former Government will remain in full force and effect.A Supplemental Memorandum of Understanding is mandated by the new Act to cover outstanding issues not addressed in the previous MOU.The government is also intent upon engaging in wide public consultations with Grand Bahamians in general and business persons/Licensees in Freeport in particular, before proceeding to enact the new Bill into Law.It is only after such consultations and any necessary adjustments to the Bill that the new proposed law will be debated.The Attorney General had already so informed the leader of opposition business in the Senate, prior to becoming aware of the PLP press release.Press Release:Sen.

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Trailer Purge Troopers star story revealed

It’ll be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on Nov. 15. “Many Star Wars fans, ourselves included, are really interested in the dark times, so we wanted to explore that mysterious, dangerous period,” Stig Asmussen, a game director at Respawn, said as part of the announcement. Mike Sorrentino/CNET The trailer also revealed the Second Sister, a member of the Inquisitors who are hunting the Jedi, as well as Purge Troopers, who are loosely based on the Stormtroopers. Those troopers might look familiar to Star Wars comics fans, as their designs were first created by Respawn and shared with Marvel for inclusion.Asmussen describes the game as having a focus on melee combat, lightsaber and Force powers, with the main character driven to completing his Jedi training despite being in pursuit.star-wars-jedi-fallen-order-bd-1-mike-sorrentino-cnetA look at the droid BD-1, a companion for Cal in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, as seen on stage at Star Wars Celebration Chicago. Mike Sorrentino/CNET Kestis won’t be alone in his adventure, as he’ll have droid BD-1 by his side and a companion named Cere. Respawn teases that “familiar faces” will tie into the game as well — maybe we’ll find out about other surviving Jedi?And Cal’s lightsaber might have some interest too, as it was teased that it would evolve over the course of the story. Beyond that, more information about the lightsaber and who it belongs to is being kept under wraps until closer to the game’s release.The announcement at Star Wars Celebration Chicago of no multiplayer function or microtransactions, along with the confirmation of a larger focus on story, is a big reversal from the fiasco Star Wars Battlefront II became in 2017. Though its multiplayer and new single-player mode were highly touted at that year’s Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, the game itself got a mixed reception for its lootbox-style progression system at launch. Battlefront II has since been updated several times, changing its progression system while adding new Star Wars characters.This story originally published at 10:37 a.m. PT, and has been updated with game details. A trailer has hit, as has news that actor Monaghan of Shameless and Gotham will star in the game as a Padawan named Cal Kestis who escaped Order 66 and finds himself in mortal danger immediately after the events of Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith. The new teaser shows his character on the run, trusting no one. Electronic Arts (EA) Star Wars Comment Share your voice 41 Photos Tagslast_img read more

DU chairs receive no pay

first_img-The University of Dhaka has a total of eight ‘chairs’ intended to encourage research work of different departments.The university appoints ‘chair professors’ to conduct research work, become supervisors of others’ research, and encourage students and teachers towards research.Of the eight chairs, three have been vacant for long, while the other five chair professors are not paid any remuneration or allowance from the university.No one has been appointed in the past 22 years to the Bose chair, the oldest DU chair founded in 1974 for research in physics.When asked about Bose chair professorship, chairman of physics department professor Abdus Sattar told Prothom Alo, “We are thinking of starting the Bose chair.”The department of Bangla initiated ‘Ahmed Sharif chair’ this year. Former teacher of the department and Chhayanaut president Sanjida Khatun was appointed as the ‘Ahmed Sharif chair professor’ in June. But, she is yet to get any remuneration from the university for her job.“It’s not about money, but honour,” said a teacher of DU’s Bangla department.Contacted, Sanjida Khatun said, “Salary or remuneration is not a big deal for me. It is whether I get the due respect or not.”The former professor of DU’s Bangla department also said she does not know why university authorities do not provide her with remuneration as she sent all required papers to the department.When asked about this, acting accounts director of DU Abdul Kuddus Molla told Prothom Alo, “We made a mistake while taking notes. The problem will be fixed next week.”Other chairs‘Qazi Motahar Hossain chair’ was founded in Institute of Statistical Research and Training in 1980s.Professor Ataharul Islam was appointed as ‘Qazi Motahar Hossain chair professor’ at the beginning of 2017 for the first time. But, he did not get his salary for the first seven months.When contacted, Ataharul Islam told Prothom Alo, “I’m personally grateful to Dhaka University authorities for appointing me in the post. I didn’t think much about it when I joined. I heard that it would take some time to get remuneration as I’m the first person to be appointed in the post. But it is embarrassing if it continues in this manner.”‘Bangabandhu chair’ was founded in DU’s department of history in 1999. A chair professor can be appointed for a year or two. But, only three persons had been ‘Bangabandhu chair professors’ in the past 18 years. They are Enayetur Rahim, Hasan Azizul Huq, and Muntasir Mamun.Muntasir Mamun is now appointed as ‘Bangabandhu chair professor’. According to rules, Muntasir Mamun will get remuneration equal to a DU professor and residential facilities in the university. However, the university authorities decided to slash funds for his flat facilities as he owns a residence in Dhaka.“This is nothing but an insult,” Muntasir Mamun told Prothom Alo.Abdur Rab Chowdhury chair for applied physics and Khandakar Mokarram Hossain professorship chair for chemistry have also remained unused for years.DU vice-chancellor professor Md Akhtaruzzaman said that a committee will be formed to find out vacant chairs and other problems of chair professors.The recommendations made by the committee will be implemented quickly, he added.About Sanjida Khatun, the DU VC said, “I’m now informed about the mismanagement and it’ll be resolved soon.”*The article originally published in Prothom Alo print edition has been rewritten in English by Imam Hossain.last_img read more

Harvey Damaged 100 Percent of Port Aransas Businesses But The Island Town

first_imgAbout 20 miles southeast of Rockport is the beach community of Port Aransas. City leaders there say Hurricane Harvey damaged 100 percent of the town’s businesses and 85 percent of the town’s homes.Port Aransas Mayor Charles Bujan’s family has called the small island townhome for more than 130 years. On August 23, 2017, Bujan was being put to the test by the ocean he loved. He had been carefully watching what was at the time, just a tropical disturbance in the Bay of Campeche. And he had a really bad feeling about what he saw.“As I watched it develop over time, I realized that there was no place it could come except right here in Port Aransas,” Bujan says.On August 24, Bujan called for Port Aransas – which had a population of about 4,000 people at the time — to evacuate.“And I’m glad I did, otherwise we would’ve had a lot of body bags after the hurricane,” he says. “Because we only had 12 hours to get everybody off here before this thing was a major storm. So that to me was the most difficult call of my life. I’ll never forget it.”Port Aransas’ City Manager Dave Parsons didn’t leave the island. He decided to ride out the storm at the University of Texas’ Marine Science Institute.“That was my one storm. So, I don’t think my wife would be too thrilled if I said I was staying for another one,” Parsons says.On the night of August 25 2017, Hurricane Harvey made landfall near Port Aransas and neighboring Rockport as a Category 4 hurricane. Its winds were clocked at 130 mph.The storm caused millions of dollars in damage to the institute, but that would be just the beginning of the damage Parsons would witness in the days, weeks and months after Harvey.“It was almost like it was a decay spreading through town,” Parsons says. “So, the first day, it was debris on the street and then just, systematically, houses were being dismantled and being thrown at the edge of the street. So, the level of the catastrophe slowly grew.”Mayor Bujan says the City of Port Aransas’s infrastructure alone – like the police station, the library and other city buildings – has incurred roughly $50-70 million in damage. Many of those structures have yet to be fully repaired. As for the city as a whole, Bujan estimates up to $1 billion in damage. The Rebuild Texas Fund reports that as of late July, more than $170 million of state and federal money has been provided to residents of Nueces County, where Port Aransas is located. City leaders are banking on support from tourists to speed up their recovery process. And that’s where their rebuilding focus has been right now.“We’re adjusting those areas that are important to us in terms of our economy. We’re working on our harbor, our beach is in excellent, slick shape, we’re getting very good crowds,” Bujan says.On a sunny and hot day in early August, dozens of people line a Port Aransas beachhead – they’re laughing and having a great time; swimming, fishing, feeding seagulls and burying each other in the sand. Mike Montoya, of New Mexico, has traveled with his family to Port Aransas for several years. He says he loves the warm, Gulf Coast waters – and the people.“This place is so laid back… and the people are super nice. Everybody gets along. That’s what keeps bringing us back,” Montoya says.Rhonda Wilhelm and her family are from Austin. They’ve been coming to Port Aransas for 17 years to mark her sons’ birthdays.“We come here every year for their birthday. We have twins… one’s out there fishing and one’s right here. We wanted to come and support Port Aransas… so we were gonna come out regardless,” Wilhelm says.A number of condos and rental homes in Port Aransas remain out of commission. But most of the shops and businesses in the town have reopened since the storm hit. Mayor Bujan thinks many of the visitors this summer have been day-trippers.But, for some Texans who call this area home  their relationship with these warm, Gulf Coast waters has changed.“We love the sea that’s why we live here,” Bujan. “And we love the island life, that’s why we’re here. But none of us who have lived through this will ever look at the Gulf of Mexico the same way again, and I’m a fisherman, and I will never go back into the Gulf of Mexico. Our children that lost everything: lost their schools, lost their personal belongings, lost their homes, they will forever be damaged as a result of Hurricane Harvey and so will the people who live here.”A packed ferry across the channel that separates Port Aransas from the mainland takes you to Aransas Pass – another town ravaged by Harvey.There, life-long Aransas Pass residents Kristi McElroy, her husband Danny and their 10-year-old son are rebuilding their home the hurricane destroyed.“You’ve gotta have lots and lots of patience” says Danny McElroy. “It’s been a very, very slow process You can’t give up.”The family stayed in a FEMA hotel for a couple of months. More recently, they’ve been living in a travel trailer down the road in a local RV camp. Danny retired from his job as a firefighter with the Aransas Pass Fire Department, so he could be close to his wife and son as they rebuilt.“I was more worried about him,” McElroy says. “Than anything else. Him and her both. You know. And once we got, once her and I figured out this is the direction we’re gonna go, then we always have through our whole, we’ll be married 30 years in February, we always have stood side by side. Put our heads down and started trudging.”They say they are the lucky ones, and that a lot of people in Aransas Pass have left. But the McElroys are determined to stay, and are planning to move into their home fairly soon.“August 25, one year after the storm… that’s what we’re shooting for. Cause I wanna be back here and say haha I won. I’m still here and I won,” Kristi McElroy says.”As long as we have electricity and air conditioning we’ll put a mattress on the floor. We’re gonna lay our heads in this house on August 25,” Danny says. Jill Ament/Texas StandardCars pack the ferries taking people to and from the mainland to Port Aransas. Sharelast_img read more

Fake Twitter Campaign Warning of Fake Tweets Created by TV Writer Looking

He wrote a sitcom pilot, “Josh Jennings for Congress,” for FX and Apostle Productions that did not get ordered to series. Discouraged, he left L.A. and spent two years teaching film and video classes and his high-school alma mater in Fort Wayne, Ind.Upon returning to Los Angeles to make another go at breaking into showbiz, he found it was as tough as ever to break through the noise, which led to his idea to create “Don’t Believe Every Tweet” as a kind of faux PSA. “Reintroducing yourself to the town is not easy,” he said.Gotsch said he also was inspired by the recent controversy over Twitter’s handling of Alex Jones and Infowars. Last week, Twitter put the conspiracy theorist and his right-wing outlet in a seven-day timeout period after Jones told viewers in a video that they need to have “battle rifles… at their bedsides” to fight “traitors.” Critics on the left have blasted Dorsey and Twitter for not taking more decisive action, while conservatives are complaining that Twitter is silencing right-wing viewpoints.“As loud as the dialogue had gotten, I thought we were missing a voice reminding us that fake news and conspiracy theories only make an impact when we mindlessly believe what we see online,” Gotsch said.The “Don’t Believe Every Tweet” spots featuring Barris were written and directed by Gotsch. He enlisted cinematographer Jennifer Gittings, who worked on Amy Adrion’s recently released documentary film “Half the Picture,” about the low number of women directors working in Hollywood.What’s next? According to Gotsch, he’s already been contacted by a few producers interested in “developing something” around Barris’ character either for television or as a digital series. Popular on Variety center_img The “Don’t Believe Every Tweet” project that launched over the weekend — which looked enough like an official Twitter public-awareness campaign that it fooled some reporters — is actually an elaborate calling card created by an out-of-work TV writer.The campaign, hosted at dontbelieveeverytweet.com, includes links to Twitter’s official website and a fake statement from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey that says in part, “It’s a simple reminder to be skeptical of everything you see on Twitter because our users can put literally anything in a tweet.” The effort also includes a series of YouTube shorts featuring comedian Greg Barris (pictured above), who makes various bizarre claims and gives baffling instructions in presentations to different people.The Twitter account @dontbelieveev tweeted about the project early Sunday, making it look like a real Twitter initiative — and confusion ensued. A Twitter spokesman said it wasn’t created by the company and whoever had didn’t reach out to Twitter beforehand.last_img read more

Watch The Hounds Best Game of Thrones Insult Moments

first_img Sundays have been empty lately without Game of Thrones, however, the legacy of each character lives on. If you’re bummed out after the series’ final season, this hilarious video of The Hound cursing King Joffrey Baratheon, enemies, and all of Westeros might make your day.Supercuts Delight recently shared a Game of Thrones supercut/compilation on YouTube that shows The Hound’s best insults, from him cursing out Tyrion Lannister to mocking Tormund Giantsbane. The Hound is known for his sailor mouth, so you can enjoy him clapping back at everyone for five minutes straight.The Hound (Sandor Clegane), isn’t the warmest person, however, he has a love/hate relationship with Arya Stark, who he takes under his wing early on in the show. Even though The Hound seems harsh, he does have good intentions for Arya Stark when he tells her to leave King’s Landing and not be motivated by revenge or death when Daenerys Targaryen decides to burn the Red Keep to the ground in Season 8.The Hound sadly dies while battling his brother Ser Gregor Clegane (The Mountain), in Game of Thrones’ last season, however, his punchy personality will always be remembered by fans everywhere.More on Geek.com:This ‘Game of Thrones’ Character Was Originally Going to Live, Writer Says‘Game of Thrones’ Star Maisie Williams Wished for One More Arya Stark KillBlow $8,000 on This ‘Game of Thrones’ – Themed Samsung Galaxy Fold Stay on target ‘Game of Thrones’ Director Explains Why Arya Ambushed the Night King’Game of Thrones’ Star Sophie Turner Predicts Sansa Stark’s Future last_img read more

Release education certificates of medical students HC to WB govt

first_imgKolkata: The Calcutta High Court today directed the release of original educational documents of two post graduate medical students, whose papers were allegedly withheld by the West Bengal government’s Health department. The petitioners, who moved two different bench of the high court, alleged that despite agreeing to pay the requisite bond amount of Rs 10 lakh and Rs 20 lakh respectively, they were denied of their original documents. Petitioner Debashish Bhattacharya, who studied at the Bankura Sammilani Medical College, moved the court claiming that the Health department was not releasing his original documents which he needed for pursuing higher studies. Also Read – 2 Group D staffers held for ‘assaulting’ minors A division bench, comprising Chief Justice J Bhattacharya and Justice A Banerjee, directed that the state health secretary must ensure the release of all original documents upon payment of Rs 10 lakh as per the bond agreement of July 31, 2013. The court directed the principal of the college to produce the documents before the court, which would then be handed over to the petitioner. In another petition, Assam resident Anurag Saha moved the court of Justice Arindam Sinha, seeking release of his documents related to his educational qualifications. Also Read – Naka checking to be stricter to rein in speed demons His counsel Kallol Bose, who also represented Debasish Bhattacharya in the other bench, submitted that he has been invited to join a hospital as a child specialist on July 19, but the state Health department was refusing to hand over his documents. This was despite his agreeing to pay the bond amount of Rs 20 lakh as per agreement of June 10, 2014. Justice Arindam Sinha directed the Health department to release and hand over Saha’s papers, who was attached to the B C Roy Child Hospital here, by July 18 on payment of the amount. The state Health department had in 2013 introduced a bond for post graduate students in its medical colleges making one year rural health service mandatory for them, which they could opt out upon payment of Rs 10 lakh. In 2014, the Health department increased the time period for compulsory rural health service from one year to three years. The government order had said that the medical students are to pay Rs 30 lakh, with a break up of Rs 10 lakh per year, if they choose to opt out of the three-year compulsory service in the rural hospitals in the state.last_img read more

The Side Effects of Solar Geoengineering Could Be Minimal

first_img“Our results do not […] support the common claims that [solar geoengineering] would inevitably lead to significant harms to some regions,” the researchers write, “nor the claims that [solar geoengineering’s] benefits and harms always have a strongly unequal distribution.”Many climate scientists are staunchly opposed to—or at least deeply skeptical of—the concept of solar geoengineering. As a result, research like this always results in some lively discussion. But proponents of the research argue that we can’t debate something we don’t understand, and constructive debate should focus on plausible scenarios rather than the most extreme “what if?” that you can imagine.Everyone agrees that the only real solution is to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions, but what if we don’t do that fast enough and there’s an additional option open? Studies like this clarify what a hypothetical back-up plan might entail.This story originally appeared on Ars Technica. It sounds like a drastic course of action: inject stuff high into Earth’s atmosphere to reflect a little sunlight and help counteract global warming. Then again, injecting a bunch of greenhouse gas into the atmosphere and warming the planet was pretty drastic, too.The key to thinking sensibly about this “solar geoengineering” is to avoid the extremes and consider the most plausible-use scenarios. That means we can ignore things like using solar geoengineering to cancel out all warming while still emitting as much CO2 as we please—it simply isn’t plausible.There are a number of reasons to take it off the table. There’s the fact that the cooling influence of atmospheric injections is only temporary—quitting quickly reveals the full force of the warming you’re offsetting. There’s also the fact that this scheme only counteracts warming—the acidification of the oceans would continue apace. And for another example, the mismatch in physics between solar-geoengineering-driven cooling and greenhouse warming means that precipitation can decline even if temperature stays the same.

Globally, the simulated scenario has a straightforward effect on temperatures. By offsetting half the global warming, basically every location sees less warming. This also significantly reduces the steroid boost that warming gives to hurricanes and thus cuts their future strengths.While global warming generally results in a wet-areas-get-wetter, dry-areas-get-drier pattern, the doubled CO2 simulation increases the global average precipitation by 3 percent. With solar geoengineering, that number dropped to 0.5 percent. It’s not an overall reduction—it’s a smaller increase.Small local changesParticularly where precipitation is concerned, however, the local changes seen in these models matter—if one region sees a benefit from geoengineering and another region sees extra harm, everybody in both regions will want to know about it. But in these models, the picture isn’t much different on the local level. Only 0.4 percent of the world’s ice-free land area sees a statistically significant precipitation decline with solar geoengineering. Roughly 25 to 45 percent of land area (depending on which aspect of precipitation you check) sees a small increase. A new study from a team led by Harvard’s Peter Irvine targets that precipitation issue. Irvine’s team set out to see whether a more plausible geoengineering scheme might minimize negative impacts on the hydrologic cycle.Avoiding extremesThe scenario they used was a doubling of the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere, which should cause a lot of warming. But instead, we respond by doing enough solar geoengineering to cut the resultant warming in half for a hundred years. There are ways to tailor the locations of your injections so that the tiny reflective aerosol particles in the stratosphere mix evenly around the world, which would be critical.That means the authors were able to simply reduce incoming sunlight in climate models by an equivalent amount, which helped them avoid a potential complication: The 13 different models they used might simulate the chemical and physical behavior of atmospheric aerosol particles a little differently, adding an unwanted variable into the results.last_img read more

No layups Coaching defense with North Carolinas Jay Bateman

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix –“When I first became a defensive coordinator you’d say, ‘Let them throw the hitch, they won’t throw the hitch all the way down the field.’ Nowadays, they’ll throw the hitch all the way down the field.” Because of this, Bateman loves to play pressure coverage. He played zero coverage on a 3rd-and-10 against Colgate last season.— Bateman showed a slide with the following statistics:Drives with a sack: 16 percent result in pointsDrives with an offensive penalty: 25 percent result in pointsDrives with a TFL: 26 percent result in pointsNo negative plays: 52 percent result in points“If we don’t force a negative play, there’s a 50/50 chance they’re scoring,” Bateman said.” You can’t worry about yards, you can’t worry about downs. You have to create negative plays to get in advantageous situations as a play-caller.”— Growing up as a player and a coach, Bateman was taught that defensive linemen shouldn’t be responsible for any calls or shifts. Now, he’s changed. “I try to spread the stress down the hallway,” he said. “If you spread the stress down the hallway, you have a chance to do more stuff.”— Bateman is a big believer in delayed pressure. If the quarterback fires an immediate pass, the rusher hasn’t committed himself to the blitz and, thus, taken himself out of the play. If it’s not an immediate pass, the protection has already committed itself to blocking, say, four declared rushers, allowing the fifth to pick an open lane.Bateman says he’ll often call a scheme where both outside linebackers are tasked to rush, but drop whichever backer the running back has committed to block.— Similarly, Bateman loves to play cat-and-mouse games on the line of scrimmage. If he’s bringing four, he wants to make the quarterback believe five or six are coming. If he’s dropping eight, he’ll put six players on the line of scrimmage, not three. It was fitting that Jay Bateman spoke at the Angelo Football Clinic days after the NBA Finals completed. He runs his defense like every snap is the NBA playoffs: No layups.“If it’s 2nd-and-5, I’m not calling defense to get in 3rd-and-2,” he said. “I’m calling defense to get in 3rd-and-7.”Bateman, newly hired to North Carolina after five years at Army, was supposed to be accompanied to West Texas by Mack Brown, which would have been a bit like a new horror author having Stephen King introduce him at a convention of the genre’s editors. But recovery from knee surgery kept Brown in Chapel Hill, leaving Bateman to fend for himself, and fend he did.Here’s are some snippets from Bateman’s presentation to an audience of Texas high school coaches:last_img read more
