RollsRoyce Gets AiP for Hybrid Tug Propulsion System

first_imgzoomIllustration. Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license Technology company Rolls-Royce has received an approval in principle (AIP) from classification society ABS for its hybrid propulsion system for tractor tugs.The AIP was granted following an evaluation of the world’s first hybrid tug, a vessel designed by Jensen Maritime.To be delivered by Nichols Brothers Boat Builders to Baydelta Maritime LLC in February 2019, the vessel will be the first tug boat installed with the Rolls-Royce hybrid propulsion system.ABS considers the Rolls-Royce hybrid system is, in principle, compliant with ABS Rules for Building and Classing Steel Vessels Under 90m (2018); ABS Advisory on Hybrid Electric Power Systems (2017); and ABS Guidance Notes on Review and Approval of Novel Concepts.“Our long-standing partnership with Baydelta Maritime and close cooperation with Jensen Maritime, Nichols Brothers and ABS has paved the way for an innovative, environmentally-friendly hybrid tug capable of safe and reliable operation and maximum bollard pull. The Rolls-Royce hybrid system enhances the tug’s escort capability, providing … assist support to the ultra-large containerships that operate from US West Coast ports,” Griff Lane, Rolls-Royce SVP Commercial Marine, Americas, said.The Rolls-Royce Hybrid Propulsion System consists of Power Take-In (PTI), electric motors, and main propulsion engines connected to azimuth thrusters, allowing vessel to operate in either a diesel-mechanical, diesel-electric or boost mode configuration.“The key benefit of a hybrid configuration is that it reduces the power requirement. Typically, a tug the size of the Baydelta vessel would need a power output 2,500kW. The hybrid arrangement allows operators to achieve the required bollard pull from a smaller engine. It provides greater operational flexibility which allows for the system to provide improved fuel efficiency, redundancy, and reduced emissions,” Lane explained.Rolls-Royce will supply all electric motors, shaft generators and a power management and control system. The hybrid arrangement provides power to US255 azimuth thrusters with ducted fixed pitch propellers that can be rotated 360 degrees around the vertical axis. This arrangement optimizes omnidirectional thrust and maneuverability as well as providing improved crash stop capability.last_img read more

Libyan deputy industry minister shot dead

first_imgTripoli – Assailants gunned down a Libyan deputy minister overnight, officials said on Sunday, in the first killing of a government member since the 2011 overthrow of dictator Moamer Kadhafi.Deputy industry minister Hassan al-Droui was shot dead during a to his hometown of Sirte, east of Tripoli, which was also Kadhafi’s hometown, security and hospital officials said.And in another sign of the instability plaguing the country, the toll from tribal clashes in the southern town of Sebha rose to 27 dead, with another 72 people wounded in the unrest. “Hassan al-Droui, the deputy minister for industry, was killed by unknown attackers overnight, during a visit to his native city of Sirte,” a security official told AFP.“Unidentified gunmen sprayed bullets on Mr. Droui in central Sirte,” the official said on condition of anonymity.A medical official at the city’s Ibn Sina hospital said Droui had suffered multiple gunshot wounds.The Libyan government denounced a “cowardly criminal act” and said in a statement it would “spare no effort to track down the perpetrators and prosecute them.”Droui was a former member of the National Transitional Council, the political arm of the rebellion that brought an end to Kadhafi’s 42-year rule.He was appointed deputy minister for industry by the transitional government’s first premier, Abdelrahim al-Kib, and kept his job when Prime Minister Ali Zeidan took office.Sirte, which lies on the Mediterranean coast about 250 miles (400 kilometres) east of Tripoli, was the last regime bastion to fall into rebel hands in the 2011 uprising during which Kadhafi was killed.Since the collapse of Kadhafi’s autocratic regime, Libya has been plagued by sporadic violence, including a string of assassinations targeting top army and security officials and the brief abduction of Zeidan.Deadly tribal clashesThe number of casualties from clashes between rival tribes in the southern town of Sebha and nearby Murzuq and Al-Shati rose to 27 dead and 72 wounded, a government statement said on Sunday.Fighting broke out in the area on Saturday pitting gunmen from the Arab Awled Sleiman tribe against tribesmen from the Toubou minority.Local sources said the clashes were sparked by the death on Thursday of a militia chief linked to Awled Sleiman, adding that the tribe accused the Toubou of murdering him.The Toubou are black oasis farmers by tradition who also live in southern Libya, northern Chad and Niger, who have repeatedly said they were being marginalised.A previous toll from the town’s local council had said that 19 died in the fighting and another 27 wounded.Fresh fighting broke out in Sebha on Sunday morning, witnesses reported.But in the afternoon the streets appeared to be calm, they said, adding that troops and policemen reinforcements were deployed in the town.The government said in a statement it sent reinforcements to secure residential areas and strategic installations in Sebha and that a “committee of elders” was trying to end the unrest.The fighting was the worst between the rival tribes since they struck a ceasefire agreement in March 2012 following deadly battles that killed at least 150 people and wounded 400 others.The Toubous have long complained of marginalisation by Libyan society, while Arab tribes have accused the minority of employing foreign fighters, particularly from Chad.The tribal clashes in Sebha could have a knock-on effect on production at several nearby oilfields in the mostly-desert south.Libya is currently struggling with a months-long oil crisis, which erupted when security guards at key oil terminals in the east shut them down, accusing the authorities of corruption and demanding a more equitable distribution of oil revenues.Oil Minister Abdelbari al-Arusi said last month that lost production from the blockades had cost Libya about $9.0 billion (6.6 billion euros) in revenues.last_img read more

The Liberals’ spring budget had forecast a deficit of $14.9 billion for the 2018-19 fiscal year which ended on March 31. The shortfall came as the monthly fiscal monitor report said revenue rose $24.7 billion, or 8.1 per cent, due to increases in tax revenues and other revenues.OTTAWA — Canada’s economic expansion remained sluggish in the first three months of the year, giving the country its weakest back-to-back quarters of growth since 2015. But stronger data for March — the final month of the first quarter — suggests Canada’s economy is in the process of bouncing back from its hibernation. The economy expanded at an annualized pace of just 0.4 per cent in the first quarter, slightly above a revised reading of 0.3 per cent in the final months of 2018, Statistics Canada said Friday. read more

UN health agency projects dramatic expansion of flu vaccine stocks

23 October 2007The projected supply of influenza vaccines in case of a global pandemic has soared this year, but medical officials should accelerate rather than relax their efforts to prepare for an outbreak, the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) warned today. The projected supply of influenza vaccines in case of a global pandemic has soared this year, but medical officials should accelerate rather than relax their efforts to prepare for an outbreak, the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) warned today.Experts anticipate that the world will be capable of producing 4.5 billion pandemic immunization courses per year by 2010, WHO said in a press release issued at its headquarters in Geneva.This compares to the 100 million courses of vaccine based on the H5N1 avian influenza (bird flu) strain that WHO and vaccine manufacturers earlier this year projected could be produced immediately with standard technology.WHO attributed the dramatic surge to a combination of recent scientific advances and increased vaccine manufacturing capacity worldwide.Manufacturers have been able to step up production capacity of trivalent (three viral strains) seasonal influenza vaccines to an estimated 565 million doses, compared to the 350 million doses produced last year.New vaccines also need less antigen – the substance that stimulates an individual’s immune response – in each dose, making it easier to produce more.Marie-Paule Kieny, Director of WHO’s Initiative for Vaccine Research, said “we are beginning to be in a much better position vis-à-vis the threat of an influenza pandemic. However, although this is significant progress, it is still far from the 6.7 billion immunization courses that would be needed in a six-month period to protect the whole world.”Dr. Kieny called for preparations to accelerate, backed by political and financial support, so that the gap between supply and demand can be bridged. read more

UN chief welcomes agreement by two Koreas to reopen Kaesong industrial complex

“He is encouraged by this positive development,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson said in a statement, referring to the agreement reached by the Republic of Korea and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) to re-open the complex, where operations were suspended in April. The complex is located in the border town of Kaesong just across the Demilitarized Zone. It employs more than 53,000 citizens of the DPRK at 123 companies of the Republic of Korea (ROK), according to media reports.“The Secretary-General has stated that the complex is a successful example of the cooperation which has served as a bridge between the two Koreas. He hopes that its operation will be normalized as quickly as possible and that it faces no further interruptions to its work in the future,” said his spokesperson.Mr. Ban also hopes that the continuous operation of the complex “will serve as a catalyst for other constructive steps, thus building mutual trust and promoting inter-Korean relations,” he added. read more

Donald Trump says Brexit is a blessing for the world after meeting

first_imgThe political leaders shake hands on day two of the British Prime Minister’s visit to the countryCredit:Andrew Parsons / i-Images Describing Brexit as a “blessing to the world”, the president said the vote to leave the EU was a “tremendous asset, not a liability”.He vowed to do a free trade deal with Britain, while attacking the European Union – which he described as “the consortium” – for making it hard for companies to do business.Mr Trump said that the people of Britain voted for Brexit because “people want to know who is coming into their country and have control of trade”.In return, the Prime Minister hailed Mr Trump’s “stunning” election victory and confirmed that the president had given his “100 per cent” backing to Nato amid fears he would abandon support for the military organisation. Mrs May highlighted the already strong trade links between the US and the UK.She added: “The president and I are ambitious to build on this relationship in order to grow our respective economies, provide the high-skilled, high-paid jobs for working people across America and across the UK.“We are discussing how we can establish a trade-negotiation agreement, take forward immediate high-level talks, lay the groundwork for a UK/US trade agreement and identify the practical steps we can take now in order to enable companies in both countries to trade and do business with one another more easily.” Brexit is going to be a wonderful thing for your countryDonald Trump Brexit and a new trade dealThe President said that Brexit was a “wonderful thing” for the UK and would enable it to forge its own independent identity after leaving the EU.Mr Trump highlighted the fact that he forecasted that Britain would vote to leave the EU on the day before the referendum vote during a visit to Scotland.”I happened to be in Scotland when Brexit happened,” he said. “I said Brexit is going to happen and I was scorned in the press for making that prediction. Lo and behold the following day it happened. Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher during a meeting in 1984Credit:ARCHIVES UPI/AFP/Getty Images “I don’t know the gentleman, I hope we have a fantastic relationship,” he said. “That’s possible and it’s also possible that we won’t. We will see what happens.”He added that it would not be possible to see how the relationship worked out until later.”I have had many times where I thought I would get along with people and I don’t like them at all. And I have had some where I didn’t think I was going to have much of a relationship and it turned out to be a great relationship.”So, Theresa, we never know about those things do we? But I will tell you one thing: I will be representing the American people very strongly.”TortureAhead of the trip, Mrs May made clear that the UK would never sanction torture after Mr Trump said he wanted a return to water-boarding and other “enhanced interrogation techniques”.However, Mr Trump sought to defuse a potential row by highlighting the fact that his new Secretary of Defence, James Mattis, was opposed to torture.He said: “We have a great general who has just been appointed secretary of defence.

There goes that relationship.”However, Mrs May said that the Special Relationship would enable her to have “frank and open” discussions with Mr Trump when they disagreed.”I confirm I have been listening to the President and the President is listening to me, she said. “There will be times when we disagree. The point of the special relationship is we are able to have that open and frank discussion. I am clear also there are many issues on which we agree.” Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher wave during a meeting in 1984 Mrs May and Mr Trump during their first joint press conference together Speaking in the East Room of the White House, Mr Trump said: “Today the United States renews our deep bond with Britain – military, financial, culture and political. We pledge our lasting support to this most special relationship.” He added: “That is why the US respects the sovereignty of the British people and their right of self-determination.“A free and independent Britain is a blessing to the world and our relationship has never been stronger.” The Prime Minister said: “I’m so pleased that I’ve been able to be here today and thank you for inviting me so soon after your inauguration.“I’m delighted to be able to congratulate you on what was a stunning election victory. As you say, the invitation is an indication of the strength and importance of the special relationship that exists between our two countries – a relationship based on the bonds of history, of family, kinship and common interests.”  Here, The Telegraph rounds up exactly what was discussed in the leaders’ first joint press conference together: The Special RelationshipThe President said the US and UK had “one of the great bonds”, highlighting his mother’s Scottish roots as one reason that relationship was so important to him.“A free and independent Britain is a blessing to the world, and our relationship has never been stronger,” he said, adding that he looked forward to working closely with Mrs May to strengthen ties.“We pledge our lasting support to this most special relationship,” Mr Trump said, with a nod in the Prime Minister’s direction.Mrs May congratulated Mr Trump on his “stunning” election victory and said that the Special Relationship was founded on the “bonds of history, family, kinship and common interest”.The Prime Minister also revealed that Mr Trump had accepted an invitation from the Queen to come to the UK later this year. The visit is expected to take place in the summer.

Gen Mattis has stated publicly that he does not believe in torture.On Vladimir Putin, Mr Trump said: “I don’t know the gentleman. I hope we have a fantastic relationship. That’s possible and it’s also possible that we won’t.“I have had many times where I thought I would get along with people and I don’t like them at all. And I have had some where I didn’t think I was going to have much of a relationship and it turned out to be a great relationship.” In the days following his election victory in November, Donald Trump could barely be reached on the telephone by Theresa May.But on Friday, Mr Trump marked the start of “this most special relationship” by taking her hand.The brief moment of familiarity came little more than an hour after the pair met for the first time as the president guided Mrs May down a slope at the White House.

She drew a direct comparison between their domestic agendas.”If you look at the approach we are taking, we want to put the interests of ordinary working people right up centre stage. Those people who feel the odds are stacked against them.”Donald Trump on Donald TrumpAsked about his “brash” persona, Mr Trump said: “I’m not as brash as you might think. I can tell you I think we are going to get along very well. I am a people person and I believe you are also Theresa.”Mr Trump concluded the press conference by saying: “I will tell you one thing, I will be representing the American people very strongly.” Mrs May had promised to use her talks with Mr Trump to discuss the importance of Nato, which he had previously described as “obsolete”.As Mr Trump nodded alongside her in the press conference, Mrs May said: “Today we have reaffirmed our unshakeable commitment to this alliance. Mr President, I think you confirmed that you are 100 per cent behind Nato.”The Prime Minister said she will pressure EU leaders to meet their Nato commitment of spending two per cent of national income on defence, something that Mr Trump has demanded. She confirmed that Mr Trump and his wife, Melania, would make a full state visit to the UK later this year and meet the Queen.Ahead of their talks, Mrs May said “thank you, Mr President” as he showed her a bust of Winston Churchill that he had returned to the Oval Office after it was removed by Barack Obama.Mr Trump, who said he could “often tell early if I’m going to get along well with someone” and called the Prime Minister a “people person”, held and rubbed Mrs May’s hand as they walked along the White House colonnade.Their meeting was in stark contrast to the last time a British prime minister met an American president – when Barack Obama used a visit to London and a meeting with David Cameron to warn that the country would be at the “back of the queue” in any post-Brexit trade talks.

You are going to have your own identity and the people you want in your country and you are going to be able to make free trade deals.”Mr Trump was damning about the European Union, referring to it as the “consortium” and the “group” and highlighting his own bad business experiences with the body.The Prime Minister confirmed that she and the President had been holding discussions on a post-Brexit trade deal.She said: “The President and I are ambitious to build on this relationship in order to grow our respective economies, provide the high-skilled, high-paid jobs for working people across America and across the UK.”We are discussing how we can establish a trade negotiation agreement, take forward immediate high-level talks and identify the practical steps we can take now in order to enable companies in both countries to trade and do business with one another more easily.”Defence and securityMrs May said that Britain and the US were “united in recognition of Nato as the bulwark of collective defence” after Mr Trump’s repeated criticisms of the organisation.She said that Britain shared the concerns of the US that other nations were failing to invest enough and “share the burden”, adding: “It is only by investing properly in defence we can ensure we are properly equipped to face the challenges.”Britain and the US would “work closely together to defeat Daesh”, she said as she pledged to deepen “intelligence and security co-operation” and hinted at a new drive to defeat Daesh on the internet.She said: “We are discussing how we can work even more closely together in order to take on and defeat Daesh and the ideology of Islamist extremism wherever it is found.”RussiaThe press conference highlighted the stark differences between Britain and the US on Russia.Mr Trump refused to be drawn on suggestions that his administration would lift sanctions on Russia, saying that it was “very early to be talking about that”.Mrs May said she supported continued sanctions on Russia, and had advocated for that policy within the European Union.Mr Trump went on to say that while he hoped he had a “fantastic relationship” with Vladimir Putin, the Russian President, although he might come to find that he didn’t like him.

ATT offers new portable cell tower in a suitcase

first_imgIt’s common for most wireless carriers to offer what is called femtocell technology. A femotocell is a small cellular base station that allows wireless carriers the ability to offer enhanced coverage indoors by utilizing a broadband connection within an office or home. The main drawback with the technology is that broadband is a requirement and its range is limited to about 10 meters. If you are looking for something that doesn’t need broadband, and can cover up to half a mile from the base station, then you may want to check out AT&T‘s latest offering called Remote Mobility Zones.AT&T has announced the availability of portable cell phone towers with one option small enough to fit into a suitcase minus the satellite dish. The Remote Mobility Zone gives companies and government agencies the ability to provide their own wireless coverage in the event of a disaster, or if coverage is needed in a remote area. No broadband connection is required since the portable cellular tower has its own satellite dish to establish connectivity. Once setup, the tower can support up to 14 simultaneous calls with data under broadband speeds or 28 concurrent calls total. The unit runs on outside power supplied by a generator that can be setup in less than 30 minutes.While some emergency responders have relied on satellite phones to ensure connectivity in an emergency, the Remote Mobility Zone will work with any AT&T phone. Businesses and government agencies can choose from a number of units ranging from $15,000 to $45,000 in addition to monthly fees. Besides the suitcase option, the Remote Mobility Site can be established as a fixed site for use as a backup communication system, or can be mounted in vehicles specifically for government use.One limitation with the solution is that it will only work in U.S. counties where AT&T holds licensed spectrum.Read more at Reuters, PC Mag and AT&T.last_img read more

Anonymous targets Orlando city web sites over antihomeless law

first_imgOrlando, Florida is perhaps only well known abroad because the city is the home of the Disney World theme park and other Disney-themed and Universal Studio resorts. The hacking arm of Anonymous has taken notice of the city for a different reason: a new city law that requires any homeless advocacy organization to acquire a permit before feeding the homeless in a public space, and limits those groups to two permits per year per public space.The city says the law is in response to complaints from citizens and businesses who were disturbed or inconvenienced by the presence of homeless in the parks and public places, especially when the advocacy group Orlando Food Not Bombs sets up to feed the homeless twice a week in one of the city’s largest parks.AdChoices广告Since the ordinance passed, Orlando police have arrested 25 volunteers for feeding the homeless without a permit, and Anonymous has been incensed over the matter. They said in a statement that the group believes that people “have the right to organize,” and help others through kindness and compassion.They then admonished Orlando police and city officials for lacking those same beliefs, and promised to keep up the attacks unless city police stopped arresting volunteers. The group offered a “cease fire” if no workers were arrested on Wednesday, but police made two arrests on the same day, so Anonymous continued defacing and DDoS-ing Orlando city websites in retaliation.The mayor’s office responded by calling the attacks an “inconvenience,” and claimed that the city will only respond to the wishes of its own community, and not a group that doesn’t live in their town. For their part, they said they have plans to stop enforcing the new city law.Orlando Food Not Bombs, in their own statement, condemned the attacks, but aimed to refocus the debate on the city policies, which they say is an effort by the city to “criminalize poverty” and force the homeless of Orlando to disappear.In the interim, Anonymous promised to continue attacks if the city continues to take action against homeless advocates and volunteers.Read more at the New York Timeslast_img read more

NASA confidently releases Why the world didnt end video

first_imgIn an effort to help people understand why it is that the Mayan calendar did not accurately predict the end of the world on December 21, 2012, NASA has released a video thoroughly explaining why it is the whole thing was just a big misunderstanding. Just in case, however, they released the video before December 22.We observe time very differently than how the Mayans did. While a day is the same thing, periods like weeks, months, and years were observed in different formats. For the most part though, we can draw similarities between what we consider correct time intervals and what the Mayans did in their normal calendar. Then there’s the long count calendar, which we do not have a functional measurement system to compare to. The long count calendar includes intervals for moments in time that are hundreds of thousands of years apart. One of those intervals is called a B’ak’tun, and December 21 is the 13th B’ak’tun in the Mayan long count calendar.The reason there are so many people concerned that the world is going to end is because there was a calendar discovered that only measure 13 of these B’ak’tun. For someone unfamiliar with how the Mayans measured time, it’s not hard to see how things got out of hand from there.NASA’s video includes some commentary from Dr. John Carlson, director of the Center for ArcheoAstronomy. According to Dr. Carlson, the Mayan long count calendar is designed to roll back on itself and start over at the 13th B’ak’tun, rather than end.In a way it makes perfect sense. If you’re going to make a calendar out of a massive piece of stone, you probably want it to last a while.NASA has been quite vocal about the world not ending, this video existing as just a fraction of the work done so far to try and convince the world that everything is going to be OK on Saturday morning. Hopefully this video stands as their only form of bragging about being right come December 22.last_img read more

Tsipras regards the Prespes Accord as his historic legacy

first_imgIn an exclusive interview with reporter Elli Stai on Open TV, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said that he takes pride in the signing of the Prespes Agreement, an issue that had been a burden for Greece’s role in the wider Balkan region by remaining unresolved for the past 27 years.The [Prespes] Agreement leaves no room for future nationalist leaders in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM),” Mr Tsipras stated, adding that “Greece gains nothing by keeping an open front with the neighbouring country, and by wasting diplomatic capital”.The Greek PM highlighted his administration’s success in comparison to the inaction of previous governments not just in terms of the ‘Macedonia’ name dispute but also the successful completion of the loan adjustment programme.“The exit from the crisis is the greatest achievement of this government’s tenure,” Tsipras said; “Upgrading Greece’s role is the second most important one.”Spokesman of the German government, Steffen Seibert. Photo: AAP via EPA/FELIPE TRUEBAOn the same note, Germany also hails the Prespes Agreement as a great historic opportunity to not only settle the long-standing name issue between Greece and FYROM, but as a way to generate more opportunities in the region.“Our contacts and discussions with the Greek government are intensive and frequent,” German government spokesman Steffen Seibert told journalists during a press briefing, adding that “we have the chance to meet on various occasions but it is good that the Chancellor will again visit Athens.”Mr Seibert reaffirmed Germany’s support on the Prespes Agreement, stressing the importance of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s visit to Athens set to take place later today.“[The Chancellor] will hold meetings with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras; Greek President Prokopios Pavlopoulos and main opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis; with the presence of several officials from different sectors,” he said, explaining that Germany backing the Prespes Accord should not have any implications with Greece’s internal politics.Greek PM and leader of SYRIZA Alexis Tsipars (L) shaking hands with his coalition partner and leader of Independent Greeks ‘ANEL’ Panos Kammenos (R). Photo: AAP via EPA/PANTELIS SAITAS EPA/PANTELIS SAITASWhile most of the world regards the agreement between Greece and FYROM as a positive development in the area, the SYRIZA-ANEL coalition government has received much backlash, from Greece’s main opposition party New Democracy (ND).Amidst speculation of an imminent government breakup, on the grounds of coalition partner Independent Greeks, disagreeing with the Prespes Accord and ND pushing Mr Tsipras to seek a confidence vote, the PM told the media that he does not believe ANEL leaderMr Panos Kammenos will “pour more water on the mill and facilitate the plans of our political opponents”.“Even if you haven’t got 151 lawmakers, you have no problem by the Constitution in carrying on,” Tsipras said, adding, however, that we would have a “political problem.”“In such an eventuality, I will proceed in due time with snap elections, whose timing will depend on the crucial initiatives we have said we will implement. But I’m saying that there is no such thing as an impasse in democracy. I believe I will secure a confidence vote,” Mr Tsipras added.When asked about an imminent ratification of the deal by the Greek government after FYROM amends its constitution, the Greek PM said that “the country will become an international laughing stock”, if Greece refuses to follow up on its promise.

Rep Young calls on Juneau Republicans to support Sturgeon case

first_imgU.S Rep. Don Young speaks to the Capital City Republicans and Capital City Republican Women at the Prospector Hotel April 4, 2016. (Photo by Jennifer Canfield/KTOO)Congressman Don Young called on Juneau Republicans to support legislative funding for John Sturgeon’s legal fight over operating a hovercraft in a national preserve.Download AudioYoung also says that while he’s running for re-election, when the time comes for a successor, Alaskans should choose someone who’s young.Young told the Capital City Republicans Monday that it takes decades to build up seniority and effectiveness – Young is 83.“Now, that’s something I want you to keep in mind. If you replace me someday, please get a younger person. Not that I have anything against mature citizens; I want you to know that,” he said. “Just because you have to have someone that serves in the House for more than 25 years. And that’s a big dedication.”Young says Congress is less effective than it once was. He says that’s because committee chairs have lost power.“When I was chairman of Transportation, I ran the Congress. Now I’m not braggin’ now, but I had 75 votes. I had Democrat votes, and I had Republican votes. They were loyal to the committee,” he said. “And if the chairman – if the speaker got frisky, and said you can’t do this, you can’t do that. I said, you watch me.”Young used colorful language during his speech. He’s a former teacher, and he endorsed corporal punishment and criticized laws that prevent 15-year-olds from working.“A lot of what we do is incorrectly, as far as education goes. It’s requirements of the federal government to get the federal dollar,” he said. “We’re hooked on this sugar tit, is really what it is. And we’re not educating our students. I will tell you. I don’t think I could teach today, because I can’t thump somebody.”Young encouraged the audience to support state funding to back Sturgeon’s lawsuit. The U.S. Supreme Court recently handed Sturgeon a partial victory and sent his case back to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.Young predicted that the federal appeals court won’t change its opinion, and the case will return to the Supreme Court.Young is scheduled to speak today at the Tlingit Haida Central Council Native Issues Forum in Juneau.last_img read more

Thailand waives visa fee for 19 countries

first_imgSource = Andrew J. Wood – ETB Travel News Asia Thailand waives visa fee for 19 countriesThailand waives visa fee for 19 countries, new 10 year retirement visa plannedThai cabinet agreed to waive visa fees for tourists from 19 countries as of December 1 until February 28, and approved 10-Year Visas for foreigners over 50.In order to promote tourism during the tourism high season, the cabinet agreed on Tuesday to waive visa fees for tourists from 19 countries as of December 1 until February 28.Tourists from 19 countries including:Andora, Bulgaria, Bhutan, China, Cyprus, Ethiopia, India, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Maldives, Malta, Mauritius, Romania, San Mario, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan need not have to pay the 1,000 baht visa fee when they apply for a visa at Thai embassies or consular offices.In the meantime, the cabinet agreed to reduce fee for visa on arrival at immigration checkpoints for tourists from the 19 countries above mentioned.The two measures are expected to increase tourist arrivals by over 357,000 during the three-month festive season, generating revenue amounting to 28,703 million baht.They will help create over 62,000 temporary jobs and increase the government’s tax revenue by about 1,200 million baht.In related news the Thai Government approves 10-Year retirement visas for foreigners over 50.Affluent foreign residents over 50 will soon be able to apply for 10-year visas, a government spokesman said Tuesday.Intended to promote Thailand as a hub for medical services, the policy was approved by the interim cabinet on Tuesday, according to spokesman Athisit Chainuwat.It would replace one-year renewable visas and come in two installments of five years each, Athisit said. It was not immediately clear when the plan would be implemented.Applicants must either earn a monthly salary of at least 100,000 baht or have more than 3 million baht in their bank account, which cannot be withdrawn within the first year after receiving the visa. They must also have health insurance that covers hospital stays and provides at least USD$10,000 in annual coverage. Fly THAIbook flights herelast_img read more

Related Bargains of the Week Marrakech Pula F

first_img RelatedBargains of the Week: Marrakech | Pula | FaroBargains of the Week: Marrakech | Pula | Faro6 amazing value surprisingly cheap flights to exciting destinationsSix amazingly good value flights to exciting, relatively faraway places – all (but one) under £65 return this autumn.Bargains of the week: Marrakech | Istanbul | FaroBargains of the week: Marrakech | Istanbul | Faro Dear SkyscannerCan you recommend a city break for this autumn where I can get sunshine and culture?Zack, Isle of WightDear Zack,Absolutely! In fact, three of my favourite cities are best visited in the autumn because it’s simply too hot in the summer (looking down to see my flip-flops were melting onto the pavement while waiting for a taxi in Marrakech made me realise it was not somewhere to visit in August, however cheap the hotels were…).MarrakechSo – let’s start with Marrakech. It’s three-and-a-half hours away by plane from London (see: cheap flights to Marrakech, but it’s another world when you step into Place Djemaa El Fna, the main square. Snake charmers, story tellers, live dentistry – it’s an Arabian Nights carnival every evening.Most visitors to Marrakech will find themselves in the Djemaa El Fna market at some point walking among its bright lanterns, elaborate mirrors, leather bags and belts, and jangling jewellery. There’s a constant buzz of banter in Arabic, French, Berber and English, and you’ll get countless invitations to join stallholders for tea or coffee.Of course, there’s no obligation to buy something after accepting a drink, but if you feel uncomfortable doing that, you should visit one of the many coffee shops. This may not be the culture you are thinking of, but coffee shop culture is at the core of Marrakech society.For culture of a different kind, you could easily fill a day ogling the extraordinary architecture of the Medina, the ancient walled city. I found a self-guided walking tour on this website, although many guidebooks will feature similar tours. Bab Ksiba gate, El Badi Palace and Ben Youssef Madrasa are all highlights for me.If you want to find out a bit more about the traditional crafts sold in the market, Dar Si Said Museum has some wonderful carpets, clothes, oil lamps, leather, Berber jewellery in the surroundings of a stunning former royal palace.IstanbulIstanbul is another great autumn city. You’ll find many cultural parallels with Marrakesh here; another coffee culture society and another sprawling, chaotic and wonderful bazaar. It’s three-and-a-half-hours flying time from London (see: cheap flights to Istanbul).The city has culture by the bucket-load. I don’t often recommend “the biggies”, but a visit to Istanbul’s star attraction is an absolute must. Hagia Sophia has, since its dedication in 360AD, been a cathedral, basilica, mosque, and is now a jaw-dropping museum. The sheer size of it hits you first, then there’s the details – the haunting archangels, extraordinary tile work and upstairs, the beautiful gold leaf mosaics.Not many tourists make it to Fener, the old Greek district of Istanbul. The 7th Century church of St Mary of the Mongols, with its secret 3km underground tunnel to Hagia Sophia, is worth a visit. Also hunt down the patriarchal church of St George. It may be comparatively modern (18th century), but many of its artefacts date from the Byzantine era, offering a fascinating insight into the pre-Ottoman Constantinople, the former name of Istanbul.CairoThe city is four-and-a-half hours away so it’s a longer trip for an extended weekend break, but it’s worth it (see: cheap flights to Cairo). Again, the biggies have got to be crossed off – just try and do it the other way round from everyone else. Go to the Egyptian Museum first (preferably early), then do the Pyramids second. Yes – it’ll be hot in the desert heat, but take a hat and water bottle and you’ll be able to enjoy it with fewer crowds.Back to the museum. There is so much to see that you should really get the help of a guide – just make sure you go with a specialist Egyptologist. The King Tutankhamun treasures are the big draw, and certainly worth seeing, but so too is the mummy of Ramses II, the statue of Khufu and the many examples of elaborate hieroglyphs, on coffins, scrolls, jewellery and stonework. You can then visit the pyramids to put all these treasures, and your newfound knowledge of Egyptology, into context.Cairo has over 1,000 mosques, the most famous of which is Muhammad Ali Mosque. An older, and less busy one, is Sultan Hassan Mosque and Madrasa. It is equally astounding – the peaceful inner courtyard, hanging lanterns and elaborate stonework.Tel AvivIf you want a bit of beach time with your city break, I’d recommend Tel Aviv (see: cheap flights to Tel Aviv). It has a wonderful laid back party vibe and you can mix beach culture with nightlife and history.The city’s original downtown area, known as the White City, is rich in 1930s Bauhaus style architecture and was listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2003. The city has more than 5,000 Bauhaus buildings, owing to the fact that many students of the Bauhaus School in Dessau arrived in Tel Aviv when it was forced to close in the 1930s. The Cinema Hotel on Dizengoff Square and Zlotopolski House on Gordon Street are two striking examples of the style.The Tel Aviv Museum of Art has some impressive permanent collections of modern art and unparalleled exhibits of Israeli photography, painting and sculpture.It’s about the same flying time as Cairo, at four-and-a-half hours away, and you should come back culturally enriched and with a winter-sun glow.Answer by Ginny Light – TimesOnline travel editorGot a travel question?
