Frustrations over slow recovery as Japan marks anniversary of tsunami

first_imgJAPAN IS MARKING the second anniversary of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that killed nearly 19,000 people and displaced more than 300,000, amid growing dissatisfaction with the slow pace of recovery.Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that the government intends to make “visible” reconstruction progress and accelerate resettlement of those left homeless by streamlining legal and administrative procedures many blame for the delays.“I pray that the peaceful lives of those affected can resume as soon as possible,” Emperor Akihito said at a sombre memorial service at Tokyo’s National Theatre.At observances in Tokyo and in still barren towns along the northeastern coast, those gathered bowed their heads in a moment of silence marking the moment – at 2:46pm (5:46am Irish time) on March 11, 2011, when the magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck off the coast.Japan has struggled to rebuild communities and to clean up radiation from the Fukushima I nuclear plant, whose reactors melted down after its cooling systems were disabled by the tsunami.The government has yet to devise a new energy strategy — a central issue for its struggling economy with all but two of the country’s nuclear reactors offline.About half of those displaced are evacuees from areas near the nuclear plant. Hundreds of them today filed a lawsuit demanding compensation from the government and the now-defunct plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co., or TEPCO, for their suffering and losses.“Two years after the disasters, neither the government nor TEPCO has clearly acknowledged their responsibility, nor have they provided sufficient support to cover the damages,” said Izutaro Managi, a lawyer representing the plaintiffs.Throughout the disaster zone, the tens of thousands of survivors living in temporary housing are impatient to get resettled, a process that could take up to a decade, officials say.“What I really want is to once again have a ‘my home’,” said Migaku Suzuki, a 69-year-old farm worker in Rikuzentakata, who lost the house he had just finished building in the disaster. Suzuki also lost a son in the tsunami, which obliterated much of the city.160,000 evacuees don’t know if they can ever returnFurther south, in Fukushima prefecture, some 160,000 evacuees are uncertain if they will ever be able to return to homes around the nuclear power plant, where the meltdowns in three reactors spewed radiation into the surrounding soil and water.The lawsuit filed by a group of 800 people in Fukushima demands an apology payment of 50,000 yen (€400) a month for each victim until all radiation from the accident is wiped out, a process that could take decades. Another 900 plan similar cases in Tokyo and elsewhere. Managi said he and fellow lawyers hope to get 10,000 to join the lawsuits.Evacuees are anxious to return home but worried about the potential, still uncertain risks from exposure to the radiation from the disaster, the worst since Chernobyl in 1986.Police officers search for bodies of the 2011 tsunami victims on the coastline in Ishinomaki in Japan’s Miyagi Prefecture earlier today, on the 2nd anniversary of the disaster. (AP Photo/Shizuo Kambayashi)While there have been no clear cases of cancer linked to radiation from the plant, the upheaval in people’s lives, uncertainty about the future and long-term health concerns, especially for children, have taken an immense psychological toll on thousands of residents.“I don’t trust the government on anything related to health anymore,” said Masaaki Watanabe, 42, who fled the nearby town of Minami-Soma and doesn’t plan to return.Yuko Endo, village chief in Kawauchi, said many residents might not go back if they are kept waiting too long. Restrictions on access are gradually being lifted as workers remove debris and wipe down roofs by hand.“If I were told to wait for two more years, I might explode,” said Endo, who is determined to revive his town of mostly empty houses and overgrown fields.New government may invigorate rebuilding effortsA change of government late last year has raised hopes that authorities might move more quickly with the cleanup and reconstruction.Since taking office in late December, Abe has made a point of frequently visiting the disaster zone, promising faster action and plans to raise the long-term reconstruction budget to 25 trillion yen (€200 billion) from 19 trillion yen (about €152 billion).“We cannot turn away from the harsh reality of the affected areas. The Great East Japan Earthquake still is an ongoing event,” Abe said at the memorial gathering in Tokyo. “Many of those hit by the disaster are still facing uncertainty over their futures.”The struggles to rebuild and to cope with the nuclear disaster are only the most immediate issues Japan is grappling with as it searches for new drivers for growth as its export manufacturing lags, its society ages and its huge national debt grows ever bigger.Those broader issues are also hindering the reconstruction. Towns want to rebuild, but they face the stark reality of dwindling, aging populations that are shrinking further as residents give up on ever finding new jobs.The tsunami and nuclear crisis devastated local fish processing and tourism industries, accelerating a decline that began decades before.Meanwhile, the costly decommissioning of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant could take 40 years as its operator works on finding and removing melted nuclear fuel from inside, disposing the spent fuel rods and treating the many tons of contaminated wastewater used to cool the reactors.Following the Fukushima disaster, Japan’s 50 still viable nuclear reactors were shut down for regular inspections and then for special tests to check their disaster preparedness. Two were restarted last summer to help meet power shortages, but most Japanese remain opposed to restarting more plants.The government, though, looks likely to back away from a decision to phase out nuclear power by the 2030s. Abe says it may take a decade to decide on what Japan’s energy mix should be.Gallery: Japan’s tsunami repairs, six months onRead: Japanese tsunami: 7 incredible survival storieslast_img read more

(Finland offers its population 15 holidays, while Malta and Spain take 14 each).Brian Hayes says that additional public holidays should be added to the calendar “to acknowledge the sacrifices made during the economic crash”.He also claims extra days off are good for the economy.“Additional structured bank holidays can generate economic activity and jobs,” he explains.The October bank holiday is the perfect example. Following its introduction by the late Michael O’Leary we saw the growth and development of the jazz festival in Cork and the Dublin City Marathon. The introduction of the May bank holiday, by Ruairi Quinn in 1994, increased short breaks and signalling the start of the summer season.He says that it’s a better option than increasing minimum annual leave entitlements as it can boost the whole economy.In the past, there have been calls for extra bank holidays to honour the arrival of same-sex marriage and the anniversary of the 1916 Rising.What do you think? Do you agree? Should we get more bank holidays in Ireland? Image: Eamonn Farrell/PA Wirelast_img read more

Festival de Cannes les déchets invités cachés de la Croisette

first_imgFestival de Cannes : les déchets, invités cachés de la CroisetteLe Festival de Cannes débutera demain 16 mai et fera rêver des milliers de téléspectateurs pendant pas moins de douze jours. Mais si l’on s’écarte un temps soit peu du sentier doré des projecteurs, la réalité est toute autre : alarmante, en témoignent quatre vidéos capturées par le collectif Expédition Méditerranée. Dès demain, la fine fleur du cinéma mondial sera présente à Cannes, pour la 65e édition du désormais célèbre festival international du film. Du 16 au 27 mai, le mythique tapis rouge sera foulé par des centaines d’arpenteurs magnifiques qui rivaliseront d’élégance. Mais si la Croisette nous offre habituellement un décor idyllique et sans le moindre accroc visuel, les coulisses de l’évènement font état d’une réalité bien différente. Une désillusion qui risque de venir déranger voire froisser tout ceux qui possède une once de sensibilité écologique. En effet, des explorateurs, le collectif de l’Expédition Méditerranée en Danger (MED) viennent de diffuser plusieurs vidéos accablantes… Des images qui révèlent que sous les pavés propres et ensoleillés de la Croisette, c’est le ravage.  Des déchets tapis au fond de l’eauFilmés à une centaine de mètres au large de la Croisette, quatre clips vidéo “les dessous de Cannes” viennent éveiller la conscience collective jusque là endormie. Car s’il y en a une qui ne se réjouit pas vraiment de l’arrivée de l’événement c’est bien la mer. Pendant les 15 jours que durera le festival, des milliers de personnes affluant à Cannes vont consommer, surconsommer engendrant inexorablement une accumulation mirobolante de déchets outrepassant bien souvent les services de ramassage prévus. Et la belle mer bleue, uniquement belle et bleue en surface, reste l’endroit où les ordures aiment se confiner afin d’échapper aux yeux et aux scrupules de l’Homme. Pour donner une idée de l’ampleur de ce raz de marée, la population de Cannes a l’habitude de tripler pour l’occasion en générant de facto quelque 1.200 tonnes de déchets supplémentaires, selon la mairie. Mais les maux environnementaux imputables à l’évènement se répercutent sur toute la mer Méditerranée. “Les projecteurs étant tournés vers le festival, il nous a semblé opportun de faire découvrir, pour information, un exemple sur l’origine des déchets qui se déversent régulièrement par tonne en mer et qui préfigure la catastrophe environnementale se déroulant actuellement en Méditerranée”, explique Bruno Dumontet, le responsable du projet.Quatre plaies, quatre clipsChaque clip d’environ deux minutes a été filmé sous l’eau à proximité des grands hôtels : bouteilles plastiques, récipients en tout genre reposent sur le fond bercé par un air issu du film Les dents de la mer. Il y a aussi “Dieu est un fumeur de Havanes” et “Cannes à bout de souffle” invitant à découvrir l’avalanche de mégots et de paquets de cigarettes terminant leur vie au beau milieu des algues. Autre vidéo pour un autre aspect : “Cannes, décors naturels” nous fait découvrir le foisonnement de canettes délaissées sur le sable des plages cannoises. Enfin, “Dégâts salés” alerte sur le sort du million d’oiseaux de mer et des 100.000 mammifères marins succombant chaque année aux milliards de déchets perdus dans les océans.À lire aussiPourquoi l’eau des océans est-elle salée ?D’après les données recueillies lors des deux campagnes scientifiques menées en 2010 et 2011, il y aurait près de 290 milliards de micro plastiques flottants sur 10 à 15 centimètres d’eau à la dérive en Méditerranée. Cette initiative veut ainsi interpeler une nouvelle fois sur la situation et surtout éveiller les responsabilités dans l’effervescence d’un évènement de fête.Une campagne scientifique contre la pollution au plastiqueExpédition MED est une campagne scientifique et environnementale sur la pollution par le plastique en Méditerranée. Le collectif composé d’environnementalistes, de scientifiques européens, d’artistes ou d’enseignants, mobilise également une équipe de chercheurs issus de plusieurs laboratoires universitaires européens. En parallèle, des associations du pourtour méditerranéen participent à des actions de sensibilisation contre les déchets en mer. Les quatre clips sont diffusés sur le site du collectif (lien non disponible).Le 15 mai 2012 à 19:03 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Kapotwe une femelle oiseau becensabot sauvée et remise en liberté

first_imgKapotwe, une femelle oiseau bec-en-sabot sauvée et remise en libertéMenacés par la disparition de leur habitat et les braconniers, les bec-en-sabot sont des oiseaux particulièrement vulnérables. Aussi, chaque spécimen sauvé est considéré comme une petite victoire. C’est le cas de Kapotwe, une petite femelle recueillie dans un centre de recherche et remis avec succès en liberté.Kapotwe, une femelle bec-en-sabot du Nil, était destinée à finir derrière les barreaux d’une cage. Toutefois, contrairement à de nombreux spécimens de son espèce, son histoire a finalement pu connaître un dénouement plus heureux. Alors qu’elle n’était qu’un tout petit poussin, Kapotwe s’est fait arracher du nid par des braconniers et est restée emprisonnée dans la hutte d’un petit village de pêcheur en Zambie. Les bec-en-sabot sont des échassiers particulièrement convoités par les zoos et les collectionneurs, prêts à payer une fortune pour pouvoir posséder un seul d’entre eux. Retrouvé peu de temps plus tard par des éclaireurs des autorités zambiennes de la faune, l’oiseau a pu être acheminé à temps vers une station de recherche située à proximité des marais de Bangweulu. Au sein de la structure, les chercheurs se sont alors attelés à soigner et nourrir l’animal dans l’espérance de pouvoir lui rendre rapidement sa liberté. Très vite, la nouvelle pensionnaire espiègle s’est attirée les sympathies de ses bienfaiteurs.Un petit oiseau maladroit devenu indépendant Morgan Trimble, étudiante et photographe raconte au Dailymail : “On m’a demandé de la photographier peu de temps après qu’elle a été sauvée, elle était naturellement curieuse de tout ce qui était nouveau pour elle et les découvrait en les rongeant avec son bec”. Elle poursuit : “Chaque matin, elle nous réveillait en chantant comme un coq,  puis occupait sa journée en observant les allées et venues sur les chemins du village, en s’attirant des ennuis avec les pêcheurs en volant quelques poissons dans leurs filets ou en se mêlant avec d’autres oiseaux et animaux la zone”.Un problème se pose toutefois quant à la libération de Kapotwe. En effet, l’oiseau capturé beaucoup trop jeune, présente de grosses lacunes à son apprentissage de spécimen sauvage. La femelle est incapable d’attraper par elle-même des poissons ou d’éviter les menaces de son environnement. Mais contre toute attente, celle-ci a quand même fini par se débrouiller toute seule. Petit à petit Kapotwe “a commencé à explorer plus loin de la station de recherche et est devenue beaucoup plus indépendante”, raconte la photographe. Des oiseaux menacés par la destruction de leur habitat Et d’ajouter : “Elle est un peu maladroite mais dans l’ensemble elle s’en sort. Une fois elle a avalé un poisson chat accroché à une ligne de pêche et a dû être libérée, une autre fois elle a été brièvement capturée par un pêcheur qui pensait qu’elle s’était échappée à la station de recherche”. 

Finalement, Kapotwe a été remise en liberté définitivement dans les marais aux alentours de la station. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Un an plus tard, l’oiseau de près d’un mètre 20 de haut est devenu beaucoup plus adroit et fait usage de son bec puissant avec une impressionnante habilité. Celui-ci, capable de décapiter ses proies est potentiellement dangereux pour les hommes qui s’approcheraient un peu trop près de lui. Toutefois, ces oiseaux solitaires et farouches vont rarement à la rencontre des humains.Les bec-en sabot sont des échassiers endémiques du continent africain. On les retrouve principalement autour de zones humides, comme les marais ou les bords de lac. Menacés par la destruction de leurs habitats, asséchés pour en faire des terres cultivables, ces oiseaux sont considérés comme vulnérables par l’Union internationale de conservation de la nature (UICN).(Crédit photo : Rob Gipman – Flickr) Le 9 février 2013 à 10:28 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Game of the Year Def Jam Icon

first_imgStay on target Review: ‘Fantasy Strike’ Is A Fighting Game That Understands…Game of the Year: Jordan Minor’s Best Video Games of 2018 For too long the definition of “Game of the Year” has been unfairly narrow. How boring is it to see every website shower the same stale AAA games with praise at the end of each holiday season? So at Geek.com, we’re doing what we can to put a stop to this in Game of the Year, a new column celebrating worthy alternative picks for the year’s greatest game regardless of genre, platform, year of release, or even quality. Here, any game can be Game of the Year!Fighting games have given us amazing original characters like famous karatemen Ryu, Scorpion, and Heihachi Mishima. But my favorite fighting games will always be crossovers starring characters from other properties, games like Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros., DC’s Injustice, and Marvel vs. Capcom. It’s the purest way of acting out the fantasy of “Who would win in a fight” between childhood heroes like Superman and the dog from Duck Hunt.But you know what else is great for fans of cartoonish conflicts? The world of rap beef. Def Jam: Icon, this week’s game of the year, combines the two in a fighting game starring the rappers of recording label Def Jam.Def Jam: Icon is the first and last game in the Def Jam game series released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Previous Def Jam games developed by AKI were more wrestling-flavored, but this EA Chicago joint feels much closer to a traditional 3D fighting game.But what isn’t traditional is Def Jam: Icon’s glorious roster of rappers who were already perhaps a bit past their prime when the game launched in 2007. Ever wanted to see Ghostface Killah fight E-40? How about a brawl between T.I. and Lil Jon? This game even lets us imagine the tragedy that would be a brother-against-brother showdown between Method Man and Redman. There are 28 characters in total. Meanwhile, the single-player mode lets you create your own mogul and play out a plot of typical music industry drama and paranoid government conspiracies. There are even gameplay systems for signing new artists and using their success to improve your fighting skills.Compared to previous fighting games with real-life hip-hop characters like Wu-Tang: Shaolin Style or MTV Celebrity Deathmatch, Def Jam: Icon only needs to be competent to be the best in its subgenre. And truthfully, the game isn’t really that fantastic. Previous Def Jam games are arguably better. But the game does mesh rap beats and rapper beatdowns in cool ways worth revisiting.Instead of maining a specific character with a specific moveset, players choose between different fighting styles like Ghetto Blaster, Muay Fly, and Black Panther. Each style has its own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to striking, countering, and throwing. Drawing upon their Fight Night boxing game pedigree, the developers at EA Chicago also focused on analog punches and in-game visual cues rather than health bars to denote a character’s waning stamina.Being a game about musicians, music also plays a key role in Def Jam: Icon’s combat. Players can manipulate their environment like a DJ hero to gain an advantage. “Scratching” triggers different environmental hazards in stages like night clubs, subways, and Atlanta streets. Stages also change depending on the beat of a song, so paying attention to the rhythm can save you from a nasty trap or power up your own attack. Successfully switching songs awards bonuses, and characters naturally perform better when their own (uncensored) song is playing. You can even add your own soundtrack thanks to built-in beat detection.Despite the killer hook that is “Rappers: The Fighting Game,” Def Jam: Icon received a mixed reception. The only other Def Jam game afterward was the karaoke title Def Jam Rapstar released in 2010. EA Chicago was later shut down while in the middle of making a Marvel fighting game.Def Jam may be dead as a gaming brand, but I still think there is massive untapped potential in the hip-hop fighting game idea. Imagine a new hip-hop fighting game in the era of Twitter and Vine and Worldstar and Obama? Imagine taking command of Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar and Drake and Nicki Minaj and Jay-Z and Beyonce and Chance and Killer Mike? That’d be the hypest EVO tournament ever! Imagine squaring off against Satan himself, Suge Knight, for the final, unwinnable boss fight at the Grammys? Some modders already have the right idea. But until then, we’ll just to settle for Def Jam: Icon, the game of the year, and wonder what could’ve been and what could still be.Check back next week to read about the next Game of the Year!last_img read more

Lead Counsel At TRRC Defends Philanthropic Gesture To Witness

first_imgBy Yankuba JallowEssa Mbaye Faal, the lead Counsel at the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC), has debunked the public outcry regarding his gesture of giving a Commission witness a plot of land, saying it was done based on goodwill.Counsel Faal said this on the 23rd of April 2019, in a press briefing held at the TRRC hall, during a question and answer session.When questioned about the public outcry regarding the presentation of money to Mafuji Sonko, a witness of the TRRC. Faal said he will not talk deep about the issue; that for everything one does, people will always criticize it. He added that whether the criticism is genuine or important for some, does not matter because they will only look for one thing and criticize. Counsel Faal said if a group of people feel they want to help a victim and want to do it at the Commission grounds, why should anyone stop them. He said these are people who had suffered, and what is needed and expected is for Gambians to come out and give generously to them, for the restoration of their dignity; that the Gambia is a society where people will criticize certain things which is not worth criticizing.Faal continued that he gave Mafuji (Sonko) a piece of land and did not regret it; that this is because the witness needed it and he has it. He further questioned what should stop him from giving to the witness, and the reason why some people would have problems with it. Faal said “as Gambians, we have to applaud charitable acts and embrace one another as friends, family, sisters and brothers”; that the country needs healing and “we cannot heal without embracing one another, and show kindness to each and other”. Faal said the gesture is meant for others to see it and emulate, so that other victims can have something; that what was done, was not done in the name of the Commission, or for the Commission, or by the Commission; that this is why his action was not an act of the Commission.On the arrests and detention of JCB Mendy and others, Lead Counsel Faal said this should be directed to the Minister of Justice; that the arrest was done on the instructions of the Attorney General who was exercising his authority under the Constitution; that it is not a matter for the TRRC and cannot make comments on this particular issue. He said the Attorney General has certain responsibilities and exercises those responsibilities in his abundant wisdom. He said the TRRC has nothing to say about this except to reinforce that there is value in speaking the truth and there are also sanctions for lying during hearings at the Commission.On whether the arrests of some witnesses who testified before the TRRC cannot be described as selective justice because there are others who were not arrested, Faal said this is a matter for the Attorney General to deal with, but that he has adequately dealt with the question in different fora. He said the Attorney General still has the powers regardless of whether the Commission can make referrals or not; that it should be borne in mind that the Commission cannot tell the Attorney General how and what to act on, because he has the responsibility to ensure that crimes are investigated and prosecuted. He said, “I cannot question the exercise of his discretion”.On witness suggestions that the Commission needs to do more investigation than relying on (oral) testimonies, Lead Counsel Faal said hearings at the TRRC are investigative hearings; that they are intended to elicit the truth from witnesses regarding what had happened; that these witnesses may have different perspectives and different appreciation of the same set of events; that while some will have different motives, others may be more forthcoming with the truth; that others will want to lie for certain reasons, while others may not intend to lie, but may misunderstand issues. That it is only from these things that evidences of witnesses can be tested to help the Commission know where the truth lies.‘‘When we sit here and ask questions and put forward particular theories, it does not necessarily mean we have accepted those theories as the truth. We are putting the theories to test the witness and for the witness to comment,’’ he asserts.On the videos of those witnesses who were confronted and labeled as liars played to get the truth from the testimonies of others, Lead Counsel Faal said for the non-lawyer, it may appear that it does not make sense; but that for a Lawyer, this makes perfect sense; that there is what is called ‘‘divisibility of credibility’’ of witnesses; that when a person talks, it does not necessarily mean that everything he says is lies; that certain things that the person says may be true, whilst some may be lies; that it will not be wrong of him to know a lie and use it to confront another witness to obtain the truth. He said when they confront witnesses; they know the reason why they confront them with what and for what objective.  On the arrest of people who have allegedly tampered with witnesses, Counsel Faal said they cannot take a position on something they do not know; that there is speculation about the destruction of evidence at the NIA.‘‘The Commission will not have a deliberate destruction of evidence and sit over it without doing anything about it. It is our responsibility to do something about it and be rest assured that we will do something about it. For now, we cannot just prejudge the matter and base it on speculation. We accept that there has been destruction of evidence and we bounce on the NIA because there should be fairness in this process.’’On witnesses undergoing legal support Lead Counsel Faal said this is a no go area for him; that this is confidential information which he cannot pass to the press just like that.‘‘I think it suffices for the public to know that there are adversely mentioned persons who are resorting to legal support in relation to their testimonies and I cannot go any further than that,’’ he concludes.last_img read more

Pixel 3 phones arent selling and its probably Verizons fault

first_img Comments 99+ Google says it’s sold fewer Pixel phones year over year due to fierce smartphone competition on the high end, but that probably isn’t the entire story. There’s a good chance that the company’s agreement to make Verizon the Pixel’s exclusive US carrier plays a role. On Monday, Ruth Porat, CFO of Google’s parent company Alphabet, explained declining Pixel sales as due in part to “heavy promotional activity industry-wide” and “recent pressures in the premium smartphone market.” Even with deep discounts, people just aren’t buying Pixel phones, despite best-in-class camera performance and glowing recommendations from CNET and other outlets. The Pixel 3 was CNET’s top Android phone of 2018. So why haven’t buyers been snapping it up like hotcakes?  Review • Our Google Pixel review: Pure Android at its absolute best Now playing: Watch this: CNET may get a commission from retail offers. There might be a few reasons for this. First, times are tough across the board. The smartphone market has been slowing down. Apple just announced that it sold fewer iPhones than it did a year ago. People are keeping their phones longer between upgrades, and prices are skyrocketing year over year. New phones are entering the market, like T-Mobile’s “premium affordable” OnePlus 6T, and buyers may be holding their collective breath to see how foldable phones and 5G networks pan out in 2019. (Hint: not too great so far.)But for the Pixel phones in particular, Verizon’s exclusive backing might be almost as much of a hindrance in getting the word out as it is a benefit. Verizon is the US’ largest carrier, which gives the Pixel the advantage of being discovered when buyers walk into a shop or peruse the carrier’s website.  Share your voice 33 Photos Originally published May 1 at 4 a.m. PT.

In fact, you can buy the Pixel 3 phones through Google’s online store for use with any US carrier, as well as Google’s own hybrid Fi network. Limiting carrier exposure surely doesn’t help get the word out, and you would think that Google would have as much clout as Apple and Samsung in getting its phones on any wireless provider it chooses.Google’s mostly-direct-to-consumer-except-for-Verizon sales model clearly isn’t working, and I’m not surprised. The vast majority of people — we’re talking about well into 90% — buy their handset from a carrier, not from a phone-maker, even one with as much pull as Google. If your carrier doesn’t have a particular phone, why not just get another pretty good alternative instead?The Pixel 3’s camera is so, so good. Angela Lang/CNET The rumored Google Pixel 3A is said to come to T-Mobile as well as Verizon, which, if true, will put the Pixel in front of more buyers. (T-Mobile is also trying to mute Verizon’s thunder with its #GetOutofTheRed campaign.) Exiting an exclusivity contract with AT&T on the very first iPhone helped Apple create the boom that made its smartphone one of the most iconic, sought-after phones in the world. Google can only hope that expanding into T-Mobile would do the same.For Google’s sake, I hope the Pixel’s rumored carrier parade won’t stop there.Verizon said, “We don’t comment on future contracts nor would we comment on sales.” Google did not comment. 5:52 Preview • Pixel and Pixel XL unveiled: Google’s post-Nexus phones come out swinging (hands-on) Tags Phones Android Pie Android 10 (Android Q) Google T-Mobile Verizonlast_img read more

Google Doodle celebrates Dad with dutiful duck on Fathers Day

first_imgGoogle Doodle pays tribute to dads of every feather. Google As far as Father’s Day gifts go, Google’s Doodle tribute to dads is no neck tie, but it fits the bill — so to speak. On the day dozens of countries around the world celebrate one of the figures in our lives who traditionally prepare us for life outside the nest, Google has given us a dutiful duck dad Doodle. The animated Doodle gives us a glimpse of just some of the daily parenting responsibilities, including educating his young charges, lifting us up and generally keeping his ducks in a row.The celebration of fatherhood traces its roots back to 14th century Europe, but the first observance in the US wasn’t held until the early 20th century, as a compliment to Mother’s Day. Inaugurated the same year that we established an official day to celebrate moms, the first Father’s Day in the US was held in West Virginia in 1908. Our favorite Google Doodles through the years 49 Photos Tags Online Google Doodle 3:40 Post a comment For almost as long as Google has been around, it’s livened up its barebones search page with artwork that draws attention to notable people, events, holidays and anniversaries. Google Doodles have celebrated, among many other things, Pac-Man’s anniversary, Copernicus’ birthday, Mother’s Day and the World Cup, as well as reminding us of lesser-known real-world heroes. Like his traditional parenting counterpart, Dad serves as our real-world hero every day, so take the time today to let him know how much you appreciate him.Happy Father’s Day, dad. 0 How Google made a Doodle game Share your voice Now playing: Watch this:last_img read more

Kathmandu airport in chaos as another aircraft skids off runway

first_imgNepali workers try to bring a Malaysian airliner back onto the runway at the international airport in Kathmandu on 19 April 2018, after it skidded off the runway following an aborted take-off. Kathmandu airport was closed 20 April after a Malaysian jet with 139 people on board aborted its takeoff and skidded off the runway. Photo: AFPA Malaysian jet carrying 139 people that aborted its takeoff and skidded into mud forced Kathmandu airport to shut down for more than 12 hours causing flight chaos Friday after the latest near miss on the city’s notoriously dangerous runway.Nobody was hurt in the incident but hundreds of passengers had flights out of the Nepalese capital cancelled and all incoming flights were diverted after the Malindo Airlines Boeing 737 went off the runway late Thursday.Earlier on 12 March, an aircraft of US-Bangla Airlines crashed at Tribhuvan International Airport killing 49 people, including 26 Bangladeshis.Talking about the jet, airport spokesman Prem Nath Thakur said that the jet was speeding down the Tribhuvan International Airport runway when the pilots detected a problem and aborted takeoff.The jet skidded into grass and came to a halt in mud about 100 feet (30 metres) from the runway at the airport which had a major crash last month.“All aboard are safe,” Thakur said, adding that the cause of the cockpit alert was not immediately known.Nepal’s only international airport reopened again just before midday Friday after the jet was “removed without any damage,” Thakur added.More than 100 people were needed to move the jet, its tyres stuck in grass that had been turned into a soggy morass by recent rainfall.Tow tractors pulled the jet out of the mud up ramps set up in front of the tyres.Delayed expansionAmerican traveller Sarah Ann Loreth, heading to Doha before returning to her home in Boston, spent hours on her delayed jet after the emergency.“We were supposed to take off on Thursday but couldn’t because of the Malaysia flight,” she told AFP.“Around 2:00 m the flight attendant informed us the other flight had slipped off the runway and was stuck in the mud and could not be moved.“They deplaned us around 2:30am and it was pure chaos. We went back to the terminal and they had our bags laid out behind the counter and we just went behind and grabbed them.”Cars eventually took the passengers to hotels to wait for a reorganised flight, Loreth said.The Himalayan nation has some of the world’s most remote and tricky runways, flanked by snow-capped peaks with approaches that pose a challenge even for accomplished pilots.Its only international airport struggles with surges in passengers and flights, and faces constant congestion and air traffic.“Delayed expansion of the airport has made things difficult. If we had the infrastructure, other flights would not be disrupted and we could have removed the aircraft more quickly,” said Sanjeev Gautam, chief of Nepal’s civil aviation authority.The incident came one month after the crash of a US-Bangla Airways plane at Kathmandu airport, which killed 51 people.In March 2015, a Turkish Airlines jet skidded off the runway as it landed, forcing Tribhuvan Airport to close for four days.Nepal has a poor air safety record. Accidents are common and Nepal-based airlines are banned from flying in European Union airspace.last_img read more
