Guidelines on Coastal Management and Beach Restoration

first_imgThe Government is to develop national guidelines on coastal management and beach restoration, along with a coastal risk atlas this year, to support and inform decisions with respect to developments within coastal areas.A coastal risk atlas provides data about hazards and communities’ vulnerability to coastal storms.Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Hon. Daryl Vaz, made the announcement during his address at the launch of National Environment Awareness Week 2017 and Green Business Jamaica on May 25, at the Eden Gardens Wellness Resort and Spa, in Kingston.Mr. Vaz said the guideline document, being prepared with support from the World Bank, is part of a broader strategy by the Government to implement activities geared towards environmental protection.“Today, we are experiencing more erratic weather patterns. A prime example is the recent rains that we had across the island. As a Government, we realise we have to be proactive in our efforts to ensure climate-change mitigation and the protection of our resources,” he said.The Minister further noted that a Coastal Response Strategy will also be developed to guide activities for the improvement of coastal ecosystems, such as coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass.Additionally, he informed that the Government has received funding from the World Bank Programme on Forests (PROFOR) to implement a project to “assess the economic valuation of coastal protection services provided by mangroves in Jamaica”.Mangroves protect coastlines against natural hazards, such as storms, tsunamis and coastal erosion.The grant is linked to the ongoing Jamaica Disaster Vulnerability Reduction Project (DVRP), which focuses on enhancing climate and disaster resilience of key infrastructure as well as the country’s disaster-response capacity.“The overall objective of this initiative is to support the Government’s thrust to promote cost-effective coastal-protection measures through mangrove ecosystems enhancement,” Mr. Vaz said.He pointed out that these initiatives are in line with the National Environment Awareness Week 2017, being observed from June 4-9 under the theme ‘Protecting Paradise’.The week’s activities are being spearheaded by the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) and will commence with a church service, followed by World Environment Day Expo and a networking session for ecotourism stakeholders.It will also feature an environmental awareness session led by NEPA officials with students of Swallowfield Primary School, and a Policy dialogue and presentation on coastal management and beach-restoration guidelines.The week will culminate with a student field trip to the Blue and John Crow Mountains. This is being organised in collaboration with the Jamaica Conservation and Development Trust.last_img read more

Roku aims to raise 252 million with IPO

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – Video streaming pioneer Roku hopes to raise just over $252 million in an initial public offering as it tries to expand into more households.The Los Gatos, California, company on Monday said it would offer about 18 million shares of stock at $14 apiece.The company had 15.1 million active accounts as of June 30 and claims that its users streamed more than 6.7 billion hours over the six-month period ending June 30.Roku is still unprofitable and has amassed $244 million in losses since it was founded in 2002. The company generates most of its revenue from selling its streaming players, but it’s increasingly bringing in money from advertising and commissions from subscriptions and other transactions made on its devices.Roku’s growth strategy also includes boosting its content offerings.Increasingly, Roku is competing with Amazon, Google and Apple as streaming video becomes a more popular option among people looking to cut the cord and move away from traditional cable service. Roku has emerged as the U.S. market leader in streaming players, with a 37 per cent share during the first three months of this year, according to the market research firm Park Associates. Amazon Fire TV ranked second with a 24 per cent market share, followed by Google’s Chromecast at 18 per cent and Apple TV at 15 per cent.Most of Roku is currently owned by Anthony Wood, its founder and CEO, and Menlo Ventures, a venture capital firm. Wood, who previously invented one of the first digital video recorders, owns a 28 per cent stake in Roku and Menlo Ventures has a 35 per cent stake.last_img read more

Saudi Aramco in parleys with Reliance for stake in refinerypetchem complex

first_imgNew Delhi: Saudi Aramco, the world’s largest oil exporter, is in talks to buy stake in Reliance Industries’ oil refineries and petrochemical complex, sources privy to the development said. Aramco opened talks with Reliance as $44-billion mega refinery-cum-petrochemical complex, where it was taking a 50 per cent stake along with UAE’s ADNOC, got delayed after ruling BJP-government scrapped plans to acquiring land for the project in coastal Maharashtra. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe sources said talks have been going on for few months now but there is nothing concrete that has materialised just as yet. Reports suggested Aramco may take 25 per cent stake for $10-15 billion but sources discounted such a valuation saying market capitalisation of Reliance at Tuesday’s closing price on BSE was over Rs 8.5 lakh crore, at least half of which or Rs 4.25 lakh crore (about $60 billion) would be coming from refinery and petrochemical business. A 25 per cent stake would translate into $15 billion without even considering any premium of giving a firm a foothold into a well-established business in the world’s third largest energy consuming nation, they said.last_img read more

Andhra CM blames BJP for violence in Kolkata

first_imgAmaravati: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Wednesday strongly condemned the violence “perpetrated” by the BJP in Kolkata on Tuesday. The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief alleged that after desperately trying to destabilise the West Bengal government through the Central Bureau of Investigation, the Enforcement Directorate and the Income Tax Department, the BJP was now resorting to direct violence which shows its true colours. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange framework “Vandalising the statue of a great reformer like Sri Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar is an indication of the pseudo-nationalism practiced by the BJP. This incident underlines the need for all the opposition parties to stand united against the destructive tactics of Amit Shah-led BJP,” Naidu tweeted. The TDP leader, in his tweets in Telugu, alleged that Amit Shah during his rally in Kolkata used vandals to create violence. He said in the past people of the country saw how Narendra Modi used Amit Shah to create hatred among people in Gujarat. He said in West Bengal where BJP has no strength, the party is trying to create disturbances targeting a senior woman leader like Mamata Banerjee and maligning her government.last_img read more

Michael Phelps Sets Olympics Medals Record in London

For all the buzz about what Michael Phelps had not done, it is equally buzzing about what he accomplished on Tuesday in London. After a disappointing silver-medal placement in the 200-meter butterfly earlier Tuesday, Phelps returned to the water to anchor the history-making 200-freestyle relay team to the gold medal. The final 10 meters of the race were like the leaders of the Masters walking up the 18th fairway toward the green. It was a coronation.Phelps held onto a significant lead and delivered the United States another gold medal – the 15th of his career and the 19th time he has stood on an Olympic podiumHe’s now alone in the overall medal count, having broken a tie with Russian gymnast Larissa Latynina as the most-decorated athlete in the history of the Games.Phelps entered the night with 17 medals, wining silver in the 200-meter butterfly and then gold in the 4×200, swimming the two races a little over one hour apart.Shortly before Tuesday night’s swim meet, Latynina told Yahoo! Sports that the medals she also won as a coach still separate her from Phelps.“Do I think I am still the greatest Olympian?” she said in an interview translated by a Russian gymnastics federation official. “Why yes, but that is my opinion.“Why do I think this? Well, I did not only compete in three Olympic Games and won many medals, but the Soviet Union team had very great success when I was the coach.”Latynina won nine golds and 18 total medals in her career that spanned three Olympics, from 1956-64. The Soviet Union also claimed another 10 golds when she was coach during the 1970s. She also said Phelps has her respect.“It is special what he has done,” Latynina said.In a tribute to Phelps and recognizing the speed he showed in the 4×100 relay earlier in the games, U.S. coaches shuffled their 4×200 order, placing Phelps in the closing leg. It unfolded as dramatically as you would expect, with Ryan Lochte, Conor Dwyer and Ricky Berens giving Phelps a sizable lead going into the final 200-meters. Phelps went into the pool and was never challenged, stretching the lead in the first 150 meters and then going into the wall nearly 10-meters ahead of the French. read more

Miami Heat Recovers in Victory Over Washington Wizards

(SportsNetwork.com) – It’s too early to panic for the Miami Heat, as they try to stop a two-game slide and even their season record in Sunday’s home matchup with the Washington Wizards at AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami.The two-time champion Heat opened defense of their title with a win against the Chicago Bulls, then headed to Philadelphia the following night, only to suffer a 114-110 loss. The Heat trailed 19-0 from the jump before rallying to take the lead against the Sixers, but were outscored 15-3 at the end of the game.Miami then faced one of the East’s top teams in Brooklyn on Friday and suffered a 101-100 loss to Paul Pierce and company. Pierce and Joe Johnson scored 19 points apiece and Kevin Garnett had six points and seven rebounds in less than 26 minutes.LeBron James led the Heat with a game-high 26 points, while Dwyane Wade returned to the lineup after resting in Philly to post 21 points. Chris Bosh scored 17 points and Miami shot 47.8 percent for the game, including 7-of-14 from 3-point territory.The Nets, who had an early 11-3 lead, used an 18-2 run to grab a 71-55 cushion with 4:16 remaining in the third quarter. Miami made a valiant effort with a 33-23 advantage in the fourth stanza.“We’ve dealt with this before. This story line continues,” Wade said of the team’s struggles. “At the end of the day, we want to play better. We would love to play better, obviously the start, the first and the third, but we had a chance to win the game. We have to find a way to pull it out.”Brooklyn edged the Heat in rebounds, 40-30. The last time the Heat lost three in a row was  Jan. 10-13, 2011. After consecutive road games, Miami is slated to play five of six in south Florida.Much like the Heat, the Wizards fell victim to the Sixers in Friday’s 109-102 setback at the Verizon Center. The 76ers erased a 12-point deficit in the third quarter and Sixers rookie Michael Carter-Williams hit a 3-pointer with 6:28 to play to give his team its first lead, which they would never relinquish, and spoil Washington’s home opener.Wizards star John Wall scored 23 points in the first half, but was limited to three over the last 24 minutes.“They scored 65 points in the second half, so we didn’t do a great job of finishing,” said Wall. “It’s embarrassing to lose your home opener when you had a great chance of doing it.”Martell Webster had 13 points off the bench and his 3-pointer with 1:15 to play cut the Sixers lead to just three. Trevor Ariza and Marcin Gortat had 12 points apiece in defeat. No. 3 draft pick Otto Porter remained out for the Wizards because of a right hip flexor injury and is questionable Sunday. Center Nene missed Friday’s game with a strained left calf and could return against the Southeast Division-rival Heat.Philadelphia owned the paint and scored 74 points inside.The Wizards are 0-2 for a fourth straight season and were 0-12 to kick off the 2012-13 campaign. They lost three of four matchups with Miami a year ago and have dropped 15 of the last 19 matchups between the teams.Washington has lost 15 of 19 and 17 of its last 22 at Miami. read more

Ohio State mens soccer dominates Rutgers at home

Ohio State sophomore forward Abdi Mohamed passes the ball upfield against Rutgers on Sept. 18, 2016. Credit: Gene Ross | For The LanternWith four of the next five games at home, the Ohio State men’s soccer team knew if they were going to turn their season around, now would have to be the time to do it.Against Big Ten opponent Rutgers, they got off on the right foot.The Buckeyes dominated this Sunday, taking down the Scarlet Knights 3-1 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium, their second win in the last three games.“Especially with it being a Big Ten game, we took this very serious,” said Ohio State sophomore midfielder Abdi Mohamed. “We came out hard, we had a few chances. It was very important for us to come out strong and get this win.”OSU received a rude awakening in their last match against Penn State, leading to a 4-0 deficit in the first half. This time, the Buckeyes were ready right out of the gate.In just the 5th minute, Ohio State junior forward Nate Kohl received a through ball from senior forward Danny Jensen that Kohl buried inside the near post. It was his second goal of the season, which gave the Buckeyes an early 1-0 lead. Later in the first period, senior defender Austin Bergstrom received a penalty kick. Bergstrom was able to beat Rutgers senior goalkeeper David Greczek on the left side of the net to extend the lead to 2-0, which they would take into halftime.“The guys were very sharp in the first half. In the first twenty minutes we could have had several goals,” said coach John Bluem. “I thought our attacking play was very good. It was the positive start we wanted in the game.”Ohio State began the second half a bit sluggish.Just two minutes into the second period, Rutgers junior forward Ryan Peterson launched a corner kick to junior defender Niel Guzman, who was able to get his head on the ball and tuck it inside the far post to cut the Buckeyes lead to 2-1. It was Guzman’s first goal of the season.Just when it seemed as though momentum was shifting the way of the Scarlet Knights, Mohamed was given a free kick from 20 yards out in front of the net. Mohamed was able to arc it high into the top left corner of the net, beating the goalkeeper and putting the Buckeyes up 3-1.“They got a little bit of a reason to believe when we let them have a goal there early on. That is exactly what we didn’t want to do, of course,” Bluem said. “But another wonderful strike by Abdi. He can keep doing that all year long if he wants to. He is very good at those.”It was the first time this season Ohio State was able to score more than two goals in a game. For Mohamed, it was his second goal of the season, both coming on free kicks.The Buckeyes outshot Rutgers 16-7 in the game, holding an 11-2 advantage in shots in the first period. The team advanced to 2-1 in the Big Ten so far this season.“We are more confident right now,” Mohamed said. “We know we have to win and get on a stride. We trust each other. We believe in each other and we work hard for each other.”OSU will look to continue their winning ways this Wednesday, as they take on Valparaiso at 7 p.m. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. read more

They’re a very accomplished counter-attacking team and it’s very difficult to go up against them.”last_img read more

The company has rules against harassment, impersonation, child sexual exploitation and other offensive content.

The account for the movie Unplanned was reportedly suspended because it was linked to another account that ran afoul of Twitter’s rules.In a tweet announcing the new feature, Twitter provided an example of a user getting locked out of their account for tweeting “Boom headshot! You don’t have a chance! I’m going to kill you this time with a knife.” The user then sends an appeal to Twitter, noting that the tweet was a joke between friends about a video game and not a real physical threat.  Mobile Digital Media 5:14 Post a commentlast_img read more

Avengers Endgame director would take on Batman movie

first_img 17 Photos DC Comics Marvel Batman The Avengers Avengers: Endgame is a thrilling sequel to every MCU… Would Joe Russo take Batman back down the Christian Bale route? DC Comics/Ron Phillips Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo wouldn’t mind a trip to Gotham City’s mean streets.Russo, who directed the MCU mega-hit with his brother Anthony, was happy to answer a fan’s query about which DC character he’d like to direct. The query came during a Q&A session with our sister site Comicbook.com on Sunday.”As far as what I collected as a kid, I collected Batman. [That] was one of the DC characters I collected,” Russo said. “So it would have to be Batman.”The Caped Crusader’s next cinematic outing, The Batman, is expected to open in 2021 from director Matt Reeves. Ben Affleck, who played the character in Batman vs Superman, Suicide Squad and Justice League, won’t be returning to the role.His nemesis, the Joker, will get a solo outing in October.Russo didn’t make any more comments about his DC hopes, but did offer some MCU tidbits — apparently some drafts of Endgame predecessor Avengers: Infinity War gave us more of archvillain Thanos’ past. 3:14 “You saw him as a child, you saw him try to convince his planet that it was doomed and recommend that they randomly kill half the population to save the planet,” the director told Comicbook.com. “He gets sent to a prison off-planet and eventually watches the planet destroy itself.”This 10-minute sequence wasn’t in the movie, but Russo noted that he pitched these details to Josh Brolin so the actor could have them in mind as he crafted the character.First published at 3:18 a.m. PT.Updated at 4:06 a.m. PT: Adds more Batman details, Thanos angle.
