Adani Drops March Deadline to Secure Finances for Australia Mine Project

first_imgThe woes being faced by the Adani group seem far from over. While India’s customs department revived allegations of a $600 million financial fraud against the firm earlier this month, the conglomerate now faces a fresh setback in its bid to build one of the world’s largest coal mines in Australia. Adani has dropped the March 31 deadline for getting financing for the first stage of the Carmichael mine, Fairfax media reported.The March deadline was predicated on the company getting a subsidized loan from the Australian government via the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (Naif), Adani Australia spokeswoman told the Guardian. The timeline for financing was pushed back after the Labor government at Queensland made it clear that it would veto any such loan.“We remain 100% committed to the Carmichael project. We are confident of securing financing,” she was quoted as saying by the publication. The company will also consider selling a minority stake, Bloomberg reported.The Queensland government’s Acting Premier Jackie Trad has accused the multinational of stalling the project. “It’s disappointing to see that Adani is once again stalling on financial close as they have done for many other milestones in the past. I know that there are many regional communities who want them to get on and build this project,” she said in a statement.The company reiterated that the deadline was made keeping the NAIF loan in mind. The state government’s position on it has been precarious, with elections for Batman seat coming up.While they have said that no taxpayer money should be spent on the project, it has also earlier talked of the economic advantages and jobs it would bring.Earlier this month, India’s customs department challenged the order that gave a clean chit to the mining giant last year, calling it “erroneous, illegal and improper,” the Indian Express reported on Feb. 11.The order was given by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) in an appellate tribunal. The customs department says that the “…the manner in which the adjudicating authority (DRI) has gone on to describe an otherwise dubious contract process in glowing terms as transparent, independent and good corporate governance practice… only points at eagerness and bias on the part of adjudicating authority to justify overvaluation ignoring facts to the contrary.”On Aug. 22 last year, the DRI had dropped all charges filed by the agency against Adani Power Maharashtra Ltd and Adani Power Rajasthan Ltd for inflating the total declared value of the goods imported under power and infrastructure heads.

2nd Test, Day 2: Sri Lanka slump to 91/8 after Moeen Ali powers England to 498

first_imgSri Lanka was facing another innings loss and a hefty series defeat as they slumped to 91-8 in the second Test on Saturday after England declared on 498-9, with Moeen Ali thumping a career-best 155 not out. (Scorecard)Ali took England into a commanding position on the second day with his second Test century. Chris Woakes then claimed 3-9 on his recall to the England side, sparking another capitulation from Sri Lanka. The tourists were bowled out for 91 and 119 when England won the first Test by an innings.Ali hit 17 fours and two sixes as the lower order moved England toward 500 before the declaration came. Most of those runs came from Ali, who was the driving force in partnerships of 92 with Woakes and 72 with Steven Finn.last_img read more

‘Bale under no extra pressure without Ronaldo’

first_imgJulen Lopetegui is confident Real Madrid can replace Cristiano Ronaldo’s goals, but there will not be any additional pressure placed on Gareth Bale.Ronaldo, the club’s all-time record goalscorer, departed for Juventus in the off-season, having inspired four Champions League titles in his final five seasons at the Bernabeu.And despite initial links with numerous big names, including Neymar and Eden Hazard, Madrid have not recruited a high-profile replacement for the Portuguese. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! The absence of Madrid’s usual talisman has seen Bale, a match-winner in May’s European final, receive more attention, but Lopetegui plans to share the goalscoring burden as well as shoring up the defence.”It doesn’t worry us. What we have to do is to try to make ourselves capable of replacing those goals, to try to even improve on them,” Lopetegui told a news conference. “We don’t want it to be something that is the responsibility of anyone in particular.”There are only two ways of doing that: scoring more goals spread across more players or letting in less goals. That’s a responsibility the team has as well”We have to try to do that to be the team that we want to be in the future.”With La Liga now back under way, Lopetegui was not keen to entertain transfer speculation, preferring to focus on delivering a result against Girona on Sunday.”I’m just focused 100 per cent on improving this fantastic squad that I’ve got,” he said. “La Liga has started and every game is really important. Three points are up for grabs now. They are all very important.”All I can do is work with those who are here. I’m very happy with them. We’re going to go for all the competitions that are available.”Vinicius Junior Real MadridOne player who has arrived is Brazilian teenager Vinicius Junior, but Lopetegui does not want to talk up the new man too much as Madrid seek an answer on the left-hand side of the attack.”[Vinicius] is very young, he’s just arrived in Spain. He will get his chance and he will do well, I’m sure,” the coach said.”He needs to prepare like all players have to – he’s doing this at the moment by training with us. This experience will help him to improve.”We’re really watching him closely and, when he’s ready, he will be with us because, day to day, he’s doing well.”last_img read more

Nats Alive, Beat Giants, 4-1

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO — Doug Fister pitched seven shutout innings and the Washington Nationals capitalized on Madison Bumgarner’s one off-target throw, staving off elimination in the National League Division Series with a 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants on Oct. 6.Fister helped the Nationals cut their deficit to 2-1 in the best-of-five series, and end the Giants’ postseason winning streak.St. Louis beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 later Monday to take a 2-1 lead in their series, with Kolten Wong hitting a two-run homer to snap a seventh-inning tie, Matt Carpenter going deep for the third straight game and John Lackey living up to his big-game reputation.The game in San Francisco turned when Washington scored two runs on Bumgarner’s throwing error in the seventh inning to end the ace pitcher’s 22-inning scoreless streak. Bryce Harper punctuated the victory with a solo homer in the ninth.Drew Storen allowed the first two batters to reach in the bottom of the ninth but shook off his postseason struggles, allowing a run in closing it out as Washington forced a Game 4 on Tuesday night.On a day Bumgarner had been nearly untouchable, his own miscue prevented a three-game sweep.Bumgarner fielded Wilson Ramos’ two-strike sacrifice bunt between the mound and the first-base line and fired to third rather than going for the sure out at first.“We probably should have taken the out of first. I made a mistake telling him to throw to third,” catcher Buster Posey said. “It happens.”Bumgarner’s throw sailed wide of Pablo Sandoval’s outstretched glove and bounced all the way to the tarp along the left-field wall before rolling over the bullpen mounds where two relievers were warming up.Sandoval nearly did the splits trying to make the play and stayed down in pain as the two runs scored. Trainers checked on the third baseman and he remained in the game.“That was an important play right now. In my mind I was like, ‘I have to do it, have to do it,’ Ramos said. “For me, that changed the whole game. Bumgarner threw a really good game. Those little things happen in games. If we do the little things, we’ll have an opportunity to win this series.”Asdrubal Cabrera followed with an RBI single. He spent the final eight innings watching the Giants’ 2-1, 18-inning victory Saturday night after being ejected for arguing a called third strike.The Dodgers, facing elimination in St. Louis for the second consecutive postseason, will turn to ace Clayton Kershaw on short rest Tuesday night in Game 4. Shelby Miller makes his first career postseason start for the Cardinals, one win from a fourth straight trip to the NL Championship Series.The Cardinals finished off Los Angeles in a six-game NLCS last year, knocking out Kershaw in the fifth inning of a 9-0 blowout in the final game.On Monday, two runners reached against Trevor Rosenthal in the ninth before he earned his second save of the series — with an assist from the grounds crew on a rainy night.With two runners on, Rosenthal missed badly on consecutive pitches to Juan Uribe. Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina and manager Mike Matheny went to the mound, and Matheny motioned toward plate umpire Dale Scott.The grounds crew was called out to apply a drying agent and rake the mound. Rosenthal threw a pair of practice pitches and found his footing, retiring the next two batters on flies to right for his sixth career postseason save.Hanley Ramirez had three of the Dodgers’ seven hits, including an RBI double in the sixth.St. Louis hit 105 homers in the regular season, the second-lowest total in the majors, ahead of only Kansas City. Wong’s two-run shot off loser Scott Elbert put the Cardinals ahead 3-1.Carpenter connected in the third. He and Albert Pujols are the only Cardinals players to homer in three consecutive postseason games.Pujols did it in 2004, the first two in the NL Division Series and the third in the NLCS.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Imran Tahir celebrates after taking catch, then realises it was a no-ball

first_imgSouth Africa’s tour of Australia started poorly with a four-wicket loss to Prime Minister’s XI that had just three players with international experience. Imran Tahir ws one them, but the outing ended up brining embarrassment.On Wednesday, Tahir did something he will neither want to recall in the future nor be able to forget in hurry. In the sixth of PM XI’s chase, Josh Philippe pulled Kagiso Rabada which ended up landing straight in the hands of Tahir who was fielding at deep fine leg. Tahir completed the catch quite easily and then went to celebrate the dismissal by pointing to his name on his back for the crowd, who had been heckling him throughout the match.But unfortunately for the South African bowler, what he didn’t realise is that it was a no ball and hence the catch meant nothing. Bu the time he was aware what was happening and threw the ball back, the Australian batsmen had managed to sneak in an extra run.”What is he doing down there,” asked one of the commentators, while the other said, “Did not hear the no-ball call.””What is he doing down there,” asked one of the commentators as the other chuckled seeing the celebration and said, “Did not hear the no-ball call.””Is he dying down there? He was too busy looking at the crowd, they’re giving him some stick down there!” said the commentators.”He still doesn’t know what’s happened. This was the catch which was a no-ball, took it nicely, turned around straight away, didn’t really say anything, just pointed to his name, that’s who I am.”advertisementThat was not the only unusual action from the match, as George Bailey’s batting stance became a talking point throughout the world. His unique facing-towards-the-cover batting stance left everyone baffled, including South Africa captain Faf du Plessis, who could not stop his giggles while the commentators were left wondering what Bailey was up to.Faf having a cheeky giggle in the slips at Bailey’s extraordinary stance pic.twitter.com/q30H7chZePcricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) October 31, 2018″Faf du Plessis in the second slip is like ‘what’s going on’,” Brett Lee said on air.”He is facing like he’s facing a bowler from third man. It works, it works for him. He’s got to wear thigh pad on the back of his leg, a hamstring thigh pad may be…a hamstring pad,” said Mark Howard, who was on air with Lee.READ – George Bailey’s batting stance leaves South African players in splits”I think we need Mark Waugh, the batting expert here,” Lee said.George seals the win and his half-century in style! #PMXIvSA pic.twitter.com/auT9IFlcBEcricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) October 31, 2018Bailey hit the winning runs in the end as the PM’s XI chased down the 174-run target.

10 Reasons to Care about The New Polynesian Bar, NYC’s Newest Tiki Bar

first_img Welcome to the Botanist Bar, Canada’s Most Extraordinary Cocktail Bar Dictador 2 Masters Takes Luxury Rum to a New Level The Best Vodka Mixers for Stocking Your Home Bar Noah FecksIt’s not every Manhattan bar that scores a national write-up months before it opens, but The Polynesian, a large Tiki-themed spot that opened Memorial Day weekend, received just that sort of treatment. The elegant, South Pacific-influenced bar from Major Food Group (ZZ’s Clam Bar, Parm, Pool) and NYC bar veteran Brian Miller, is a departure from the city’s traditional Tiki scene. Want to know why else this bar matters?Here are ten reasons.It’s Big, Excellent and Near Times SquareFinding (actual) good food and drink in or near Times Square has always been a hassle and the few “insider” spots tend to be small (meaning it’s harder to get in, especially before Broadway shows). This indoor/outdoor space—on the third floor of a new Pod Hotel flagship —seats 200. While that may seem small compared to an Applebees, it’s practically a Viking meeting hall in NYC (and you don’t have to worry about a toddler getting riblet sauce on you when they go rogue).It’s also well placed for easy access from Hell’s Kitchen, the new Hudson Yards complex, and the northern end of the Highline elevated walking path. No longer do you have to wrack your brain thinking where you (or friends who trust your advice) should head before a play or a visit to the M&M store.It’s Helmed by a PirateBrian Miller, a bartender who helped launch Death and Company, one of NYC’s original (and still top-notch) craft cocktail spots, dove deep into Tiki cocktail culture about 15 years ago, spending time in Hawaii and elsewhere learning the craft and history of juice, rum and orgeat tropical cocktails. Along the way he hosted a popular series of pop-up events dubbed Tiki Mondays, featuring original drinks, guest bartenders, and envelope-pushing concepts (“I was like, cool—you think Tiki is syrupy, sticky drinks,” he recalls. “I’m going to make it with whiskey and make you love it”).Along the way he evolved into a pirate: He grew comfortable wearing bandanas, face paint, and sarongs, as one does.“How lucky am I that I get to do this?” says Miller. “People are like ‘Oh, you dressed up for this?’ I’m like, ‘No. this is pretty much how I dress every day.’ I did a Tiki Monday at a bar called Slowly Shirley, and one of the servers was like, ‘Do I get to wear a sarong?’ The owner was like, ‘When you make your career out of wearing a sarong, then you can wear a sarong.’”It’s a Beautiful Space and Also: TikiNoah FecksIf your experience with Tiki bars is largely cluttered, darkened hideaways packed with cartoonish idols and grass-skirted hula statuettes (or a Royal frat party), think again. The Polynesian is far removed from such kitsch. Instead you get get soothing, trendy mid-century modern with soaring beams, greenery and (sustainable) teak doors, from designer Vanessa Guilford. It feels more like you’re in a Hawaiian super-villain’s mansion or a Trader Vic’s if Frank Lloyd Wright got his hands on one.And the Tiki is legit. Miller is known for expanding the repertoire of the category, introducing unusual ingredients like mezcal and sherry while staying true to the heart of its complex cocktail history. “You don’t use the name ‘Polynesian’ lightly,” he insists. “It’s about honoring, not just Hawaii, but the entire Pacific region. It’s a large family.”NYC Deserves a Great Tiki PlaceSan Francisco has Smuggler’s Cove and New Orleans has Beachbum Berry’s Latitude 29. But NYC’s Tiki scene has gone in and out of favor with varying success.“For a long time the U.K. was killing us,” says Miller. “Tiki was an American thing, but for a long time it was as if England had chosen to adopt the Blues, then made them better. Once Martin Cate opened Smuggler’s Cove, it really planted the flag here. There are a lot of great spots in New York, and I’m not competing with anyone, but many are tiptoeing around Tiki. We’re full-on Tiki.”The Drinks (and Food) are On PointNoah FecksBalanced, pleasing, and full of flavor, the drinks compete with any of the best in the city. And the food… if you don’t order the crab puffs or sliders, you’ve done yourself a disservice. Among the highlights: The Reggae Bus (rum, chartreuse, saffron and fresh juice); Jungle Booby (tequila, mezcal, orgeat, bitters, absinthe and fresh juices); and the Gone Rumming (an elevated rum and Coke).They’re Also Crazy ‘Grammablehttps://www.instagram.com/p/BjZ7FdNgOZP/?tagged=thepolynesianThere’s drink on fire inside a skull. A skull. There’s a sharable-for-six large-format cocktail nestled inside a giant clam shell filled with smoking dry ice (the Exotica Bowl has coriander-infused rum, makrut lime, ginger, coconut, and fresh juices). But Miller is quick to point out the chill vibe that he hopes encourages what old-timers used to call “face-to-face conversation.”Nerds and Newbies Will Love ItNoah Fecks“Tiki is for everybody,” insists Miller. “I’ve said for years that a great cocktail should be a right, not be a privilege.” If you’ve never had a tropical drink, hate rum, or had a gooey Mai Tai poolside at a resort, there’s something here for you. Miller suggests tentative drinkers start with the Piña Colada, a small, potent slushy take on the classic. Then ask about the other drinks, many of which like the Gantt’s Tomb and the Double Barreled Winchester, Miller created years ago and has become known for. “The whole menu is personal,” says Miller.At the same time, though the menu highlights signature drinks, experienced Tiki fans needn’t worry. If you crave a Dr. Funk, Zombie or classic Mai Tai, the staff should be able to accommodate you.The Staff Can Pronounce Hawaii’s State FishIt’s “Humuhumunukunukuapua’a.” Here, it’s the name of a cocktail. Say that three times drunk.It’s a Great Date Night SpotSeriously. Between the great drinks, the small bites, comfortable seating, friendly staff and island yacht rock, you’re going to get major points taking a date here. Or a parent. Or a new business pitch.There’s an Outdoor TerraceWith its own bar. ’Nuff said.

Arch invests in technologies to improve coal use and cut emissions

first_imgArch Coal plans to invest $3.0 million in ADA to fund near-term growth opportunities. ADA has been successful at developing technologies that improve the performance of coals from Wyoming’s Powder River Basin (PRB). In addition to flue gas conditioning chemicals used to aid in the collection of ash from PRB coals, it also developed a cost-effective brominated activated carbon technology that provides a means of achieving 90% removal of mercury emissions from PRB coals and CyClean technology, a proprietary coal additive that improves combustion of PRB coals in cyclone boilers resulting in enhanced efficiency and reduced emissions of mercury and nitrogen oxides. For the past several years, ADA has worked with Arch to explore certain unique characteristics of some of its coals that allow them to be burned with lower mercury emissions.The first step of the investment was completed on March 23 with the purchase of 143,885 shares of ADA for $1.0 million. The remaining $2.0 million is consideration for an exclusive license to use ADA’s technology to provide environmental benefits for coals mined by Arch that are used to produce electricity. The license is currently being negotiated to define the royalty structure and is expected to be finalized in the next month. Arch has been a significant shareholder of ADA since 2003 when the Company spun-out as a separate public entity.Mike Durham, ADA President and CEO, stated, “This investment will continue our long-standing relationship with Arch and allow the company to fund opportunities that have the potential for significant near-term increases in revenues and earnings such as CyClean. As Congress is considering a year extension to the Section 45 tax credits, we want to be in a position to respond quickly to sell and install additional CyClean systems to produce refined coal.”ADA-ES is a leader in clean coal technology and the associated specialty chemicals. It develops and implements proprietary environmental technology and specialty chemicals that enable coal-fuelled power plants to enhance existing air pollution control equipment, maximise capacity and improve operating efficiencies. ADA-ES supplies activated carbon (AC) injection systems, mercury measurement instrumentation, and related services. Through Clean Coal Solutions, the company provides its patented refined coal technology, CyClean, to utilities to enhance combustion of and reduce emissions from PRB coals in cyclone boilers, which qualifies for Section 45 tax credits. In addition, to meet the needs of the power industry for mercury control, a joint venture of the company, ADA Carbon Solutions, is developing state-of-the-art facilities to produce AC with the first plant projected to come on-line in 2010. The company is also developing technologies for power plants to address issues related to the emissions of carbon dioxide.last_img read more

LabGrown Mosquitoes Get EPA Okay

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferNASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This Weekend Stay on targetcenter_img Mosquitos are kinda the bane of human existence. Even more so than other people, mosquitos have been responsible for more dead people than any other species on earth. So, naturally, scientists have been working on some plans to rejigger the critters to make them… a bit less deadly. The first of these projects, reengineered mosquitoes that can deliver toxic bacteria to their friends, just got Environmental Protection Agency approval. That positions the tech at the latest front not only on humans’ long-running war against disease, but in the bout of genetic engineering rules and regulations.This technique essentially takes lab-grown mosquitoes and intentionally infects them with Wolbachia pipientis. Later, those insects are released into the wild, and that’s when things get serious. As the lab-grown males mate with wild females, they produce stunted offspring. Pipientis mucks with the development of male chromosomes in new offspring, so eggs from these males don’t develop properly. The result? Dramatically fewer pests without any pumping dangerous poisons into the environment.The method is based on an older process that used radiation to sterilize bugs. That method was used in the 70s and 80s to eradicate pests like screwworm.Science journal, Nature, broke the news. MosquitoMate, the company marketing the technique has officially registered the Asian Tiger mosquito as a new biological pesticide and maintains a multi-year license for sale and use in 20 American states.“It’s a non-chemical way of dealing with mosquitoes, so from that perspective, you’d think it would have a lot of appeal,” David O’Brochta, an entomologist at the University of Maryland told Nature. “I’m glad to see it pushed forward, as I think it could be potentially really important.”It’s a bit early to tell just how effective this will be, but there’s some great promise. The plan is to severely curtail some of the most pernicious and frightening diseases carried by the blood-sucking parasites. Zika, West Nile, Dengue, and, of course, Malaria, though that’s less of a problem in the states. This is just the first major step humans are taking in a new push to genetically modify the life around us to suit our preferences. Concerning as it sounds, the motivations are solid. Who would argue that we shouldn’t try to save lives?“Barrier sprays often include chemicals that can kill good insects (not just mosquitoes),” the company’s website reads. “Additionally, barrier sprays do not reach many of the small places where mosquitoes hide and lay eggs. Barrier sprays can knock down mosquito populations, but the effectiveness wears off quickly, which requires more spraying.”As people gain more control over the genome in ourselves and other species, we can surely expect similar arguments. That could be a very exciting time — an era where we wipe out diseases left and right — but it could also be a troubling one. A bit like unleashing a genetic pandora on terrestrial life. Who’s to say where it ends?For now, it seems, there’s a limit on deployment, but soon this could be nationwide. Part of me wants to be wary — this seems like the first half of so many bio-horror movies — but the science looks good. Here’s hoping it all turns out well.last_img read more

PAL Patrol Students enjoy face time with police

first_img“I think it’s loaded,” Vancouver police Detective Adam Millard said.No, Millard wasn’t talking about a loaded gun. He was joking about a loaded die as he played color-coded Jenga in Ann Corlett’s third-grade classroom Friday. Millard and the four Fruit Valley Elementary students he was playing with kept rolling red. So, the tower of wooden blocks was stacked precariously high. Even though the tower eventually — and quickly — came crashing down, they asked him to play again. Millard is one of 14 Vancouver Police Department officers involved in the Police Activities League Patrol, or PAL Patrol, a program that connects officers with elementary school classrooms. He spent about an hour in Corlett’s class before students left for spring break. The program, new this year, targets students in low-income areas that officers frequent. Ideally, kids are able to form their own opinions about police officers based on their personal experiences, instead of what they see on TV or hear from their parents, said John Andersen, the Vancouver Police Activities League’s executive director. “We have kids in the community with a negative perspective toward law enforcement,” Andersen said. “Now we see kids approach police officers rather than run away from them.”last_img read more

The First HighlyDetailed Maps of the Moon from the Father of Lunar

first_imgSince the beginning, people have looked up at the moon and wondered. Early gazers may have thought the Moon was inhabited or that it somehow played a part in our fate. Polynesians of the Pacific said that the moon was a creator goddess named Hina, the Greeks believed the moon was the goddess Artemis, sister of Apollo, the Romans called it Luna, and the Japanese believed that the moon was a god with powers of clairvoyance. There was also the green cheese theory.The far side of the Moon is sometimes called the “dark side” of the Moon, as most of it is not visible from Earth due to tidal lockingMoonlight was considered at one time to be dangerous and could drive one mad. According to a forum Myth Encyclopedia, in the 11th century, English philosopher Roger Bacon wrote, “Many have died from not protecting themselves from the rays of the moon.” Interest increased when Polish astronomer Johannes Hevelius published the first atlas of the Moon in 1647 – all without the use of any high-powered telescopes.  If fact he is considered the last astronomer to do major work without the use of a telescope. He eventually used a huge Keplerian telescope with a wood and wire tube he constructed himself.Hevelius, born in 1611 in Gdańsk, Poland spent his early years studying with German astronomer, mathematician, and polymath, Peter Krüger.Johannes HeveliusHe was a brewer by trade and had studied law, but, upon the death of Krüger in 1639, Hevelius decided to become a full-time astronomer with his main focus on the Moon. Coming from a wealthy brewing family, he was able to put his full attention to his work. He built an observatory on the roof of his house and, later on, filled it with telescopes such as the large Keplerian telescope with a 150-foot focal length and other astronomy tools calling it Sternenberg or the “Star Castle.” However, even amidst pressure from colleagues to rely more on telescopes, Hevelius always maintained he could get just as accurate mappings simply with a quadrant and alidade.Woodcut of Hevelius’ 46 m (150 ft) focal-length telescopeHis star castle became the go to place in Europe for stellar astronomy and was visited by the Polish Queen, Marie Louise Gonzaga; Polish King, John III Sobieski; and Edmond Halley of Halley’s Comet fame. King John was so impressed he allowed Hevelius and his family to run their brewery tax free to enable more resources for celestial study.Related Video: Apollo Moon Dust Bag Sells For $1.8m At New York AuctionFor several years, Hevelius sketched the moon every night and the next day engraved the images into copper for a print plate. In 1647, he published the nearly 500 page Selenographia, sive Lunae descriptio (Selenography, or A Description of The Moon), complete with 137 pictures from the copper plates.Peter Crüger’s azimuthal quadrant, completed by HeveliusWhile he wasn’t the first to document the moon, his drawings contained more detail than anyone had seen before. He was the first to include the entire surface that is visible from Earth, and, from studying lunar eclipses, Hevelius was the first to determine how to map longitude. Astronomy historian Albert Van Helden tells us on CityLab that Hevelius managed the amazing feat of showing details of the moon in all phases in his engravings.Johannes Hevelius – notes on a cometThe book also contained three large plates, each showing the full moon in different ways: one view is as the moon looks through a telescope, one view uses geographical conventions like a mapmaker might use, and the third map is a synthesis illuminating all the lunar features.Hevelius map of the moon 1647According to Forbes, Pope Innocent X highly respected the book’s information, but he wished it hadn’t been written by a heretic (Hevelius was Lutheran). Hevelius named many of the landscape features, including a mountainous region called the Alps, and several of the names are still in use today, including a crater he named for himself.Map of the moon from ‘Selenographia, sive Lunae descriptio’, 1647Not only did Hevelius document the moon in great detail, he also discovered ten new constellations, identified four comets, and wrote several other books on astronomy. He built better and better telescopes, created star charts, invented the pendulum clock, and improved on the sundial.Hevelius map of the moon 1645Hevelius’s wife, Elisabeth Koopman, was a partner in his work and became an astronomer of some renown on her own merits. She published his star catalog in 1690, three years after Hevelius’s death; the catalog has been kept at Brigham Young University since 1971.Read another story from us: 4 Billion-Year-old Rock from Earth Discovered on the MoonSeveral copies of Selenographia sive Lunae descriptio still exist, including one in the Huntington Library near Los Angeles, another at the Hubble telescope observatory, and one in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University.

first_imgThe mighty long weekend is almost over for thousands of Qantas passengers stranded at airports across the globe as the carrier’s chief executive declares that “all industrial action is now over”.Speaking to media this morning Alan Joyce said Fair Work Australia made the decision early this morning to terminate all strikes between the Australian flag carrier and the Australian Licenced Aircraft Engineers Association (ALAEA), Transport Workers Union (TWU) and Australian International Pilots Association.As a result the carrier’s head said subject to Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), the airline will resume flights by mid-afternoon today and expects that operations will “return to business as usual over the next 24 hours”.He explained that from here-on-out Qantas will continue negotiations with unions for up to 21 days, after which an extension of another 21 days will awarded or if no agreement is reached the issue will be resolved by “binding arbitration under the control of the industrial umpire”.“The important thing is that all industrial action is now over and we have certainty,” Mr Joyce told media.“Certainty for our employees, certainty for our customers and certainty for our shareholders.”To meet overwhelming demand from the 68,000 passengers disrupted by the cancellation of up to 447 flights over the weekend, Mr Joyce said the carrier would add extra staff at airports to assist customers.“We are assessing our ability to put on supplementary services to clear the backlog,” he said.“We have four international supplementary services ready to go.”Mr Joyce stressed that the carrier remains committed to serving its customers as well as building a stronger and stable carrier.Dispelling reports of issues with the staff, the carrier’s head added up to 35,000 staff stayed on Team Qantas throughout industrial disputes.“We have been a very good employer and we’ll stay that way,” he said.“We now look forward to the conclusion of agreements with the remaining three unions.“Finally I want to say that this industrial relations situation has obviously been a massively consuming issue for Qantas management and for our operations.“Now we can move on with certainty.”Are you ready to fly Qantas or does your faith in the Australian flag carrier stay grounded?

NYC Grammy officials sparring over expense of awa

The award will be held on Sunday. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews) by Deepti Hajela And Karen Matthews, The Associated Press Posted Jan 24, 2018 2:23 pm PDT Last Updated Jan 25, 2018 at 6:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – The return of the Grammys to New York City for the first time in 15 years has hit a sour note, with the Recording Academy complaining that the city hasn’t met its commitment to shoulder the added costs of staging the awards ceremony.New York City officials had lobbied hard to get the show back after many years in Los Angeles, including cajoling business groups and sponsors into subsidizing the lavish awards show.Recording Academy President Neil Portnow said it is costing $6 million to $8 million more to produce the Grammys in New York than in Los Angeles and New York City hasn’t done all it said it would to make up the shortfall.New York City officials say they’ve raised the money they promised and expect a great show when the 60th anniversary Grammys ceremony takes over Madison Square Garden on Sunday.“The city fully met all of its obligations to the academy,” Julie Menin, the commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, said Wednesday.Menin recruited business groups, unions and corporate sponsors to raise close to $5 million in contributions and labour concessions for the 2018 Grammys. No public dollars were spent, she said.Kathryn Wylde, president of the Partnership for New York City, which was part of the campaign, said the mood was celebratory at the Grammy party she attended this week.“From everything I understand, the city and the host committee have met all their commitments to the academy and the foundation and the program is going forward without any issues,” Wylde said.The academy has already announced the ceremony is going back to Los Angeles next year for at least four years.The Grammys used to switch between New York and Los Angeles every year or so, but that ended in 1998, when then-mayor Rudy Giuliani got into a dispute with then-academy president Michael Greene.“We could replace the Grammys in about a day,” he said, boasting that the city didn’t need the show or the influx of industry spending that supposedly boosted the local economy. “You say we’re going to lose $40 million? We’ll replace that with three other things in a day. I’m serious.”The Grammys spent the next four years in Los Angeles. It returned once to New York in 2003 after a new mayor took office, and then went back to L.A.’s Staples Center until now.New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio heralded the show’s return Monday when he joined Portnow at a ribbon-cutting for the academy’s new East Coast offices.“This is the biggest night in music returning to the musical capital of the world and that feels really good,” he said.Portnow said Wednesday that neither the promised union concessions nor corporate sponsorships were as large as the academy expected.For example, he said, while the city’s host committee secured a $275,000 sponsorship from Adidas, that’s “quite modest” compared to the seven-figure sponsorship deal the academy expected.Still, Portnow said it made sense to hold this year’s Grammys in New York for a variety of reasons.“If you have an opportunity to be unpredictable that’s a really positive thing to do,” he said.Grammy boosters say New York should do all it can to attract the ceremony in the future because the host city reaps millions of dollars in economic benefits — plus bragging rights that can’t be quantified.Larry Miller, director of the music business program at New York University’s Steinhardt School, said the New York-Los Angeles cost difference is due partly to the fact that hotel accommodations, transportation and labour all cost more in New York and partly to the fact that the Staples Center, the ceremony’s Los Angeles home, is a newer building than Madison Square Garden and is “purpose built for events like the Grammy Awards.”“I think the degree to which we could close the budget gap as a business community and make it a neutral cost decision for the Recording Academy and its broadcast partner, CBS, would allow for a more equitable scheduling to develop over the long term,” Miller said. “I think it’s a matter of civil pride to us in New York to be able to continue to attract the Grammy awards and the global viewing audience to everything that is attractive, glamorous, exciting and aspirational about New York.”University of Chicago economist Allen Sanderson was more skeptical about efforts to attract high-profile events by major cities like New York. Economic impact estimates, he said, are often overblown.“I generally think that if you take whatever number they put out and move the decimal point one over to the left, it’s more accurate,” he said.last_img read more

This will boomerang (on the party) We are ready for any kind of probe and even a public debate on the issue The decision to pay the penalty to the central government was taken in the interest of the state and not for personal gain" he told reporters in the national capital The amount was paid to ensure reallocation of the Baranj coal block in Maharashtra for the smooth supply of coal to power units in the state he added Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee working president Dinesh Gundu Rao too rubbished the BJP’s charge saying the party should stop making such allegations to "score political points" in the run-up to the Assembly polls slated for next year The opposition BJP citing documents alleged that Siddaramaiah and Shivakumar as chairman and director of KPCL respectively had "failed miserably in their duties to protect KPCL and allowed loot of taxpayers’ money of Rs 447 crore" Yeddyurappa a former chief minister demanded that the matter be handed over to the CBI for investigating the role of the chief minister and all those involved in the alleged scam The BJP said KPCL and Kolkata-based Eastern Mineral and Trading Agency (EMTA) formed Karnataka EMTA Coal Mines Ltd (KECML) with 24 percent and 76 percent stake respectively in 2002 and when the central government allotted six coal mines to KPCL in 2003 it in turn executed the lease in favour of KECML In the wake of the coal scam the Supreme Court cancelled all coal mining licences including those of KECML and levied penalties the senior BJP leader said Maintaining that KPCL did not object to or counter the claims made by KECML Yeddyurappa said "KPCL woke up just 48 hours before the deadline of December 31 2014 It wrote to KECML on December 30 saying it (KECML) was liable to pay the entire amount and directed it to make the total payment" "Shockingly within 24 hours of writing the letter on December 31 KPCL paid Rs 110 crore towards penalty and claimed it was 24 per cent of the amount despite no demand having been made on KPCL to make the payment" he said "Most shockingly on March 16 2017 KPCL made the balance payment of Rs 337 crore despite a contempt plea that is pending in the Supreme Court and related matters before the high court" he added On 2 February 2015 the central government had filed a contempt petition in the Supreme Court against KECML over non-payment of the penalty Defending the payment made by KPCL Dinesh Gundu Rao of the Congress told reporters in Bengaluru that KPCL paid the money to the coal controller under protest and also filed affidavits in the Supreme Court and the High Court that the payment was being made without prejudice to KPCL’s rights to recover the money from EMTA "Since the matter is sub-judice BJP should stop making any allegations" Rao said The fresh salvo by the BJP against the chief minister comes days after it accused Siddaramaiah of "illegally denotifying" land resulting in a loss of Rs 300 crore to the public exchequer and filed a complaint with the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Rejecting allegations of denotification Siddaramaiah called it an attempt to tarnish his image ahead of the assembly elections early next year

Let the investigation be completed" he said when asked about the raids The Centre has defended death by hanging as a means of execution and said it was safer and quicker than administering lethal injection or death by firing squad The Centre was responding to a plea seeking an alternate method of execution other than hanging Representational image PTI As reported by Live Law the Centre also said it didn’t want to make the execution "overly comfortable" since it’s a punishment meant to be handed out only in the rarest of rare cases because the crime is barbaric and abhorrent in nature An overly comfortable punishment it argued would reduce the deterrence The Centre also argued that these were sensitive issues which are exclusively a matter of legislative policy and ought not to be entertained in a PIL It was responding to the original petition filed by Supreme Court advocate Rishi Malhotra which called death by hanging a painful method and said there needs to be an alternative which would provide for a more "dignified" form of death As reported by NDTV in October?which left more than 165 people dead The president who was at the military hospital to see the victims ofthe

the state-owned Karnataka Power Corporation Limited (KPCL) a charge the Congress refuted as "baseless" State BJP president BS Yeddyurappa told reporters in Bengaluru that KPCL paid a penalty of Rs 447 crore to the Centre for re-allotment of a coal block despite it having no such liability following the coal scam verdict of the Supreme Court in August 2014 File image of BS Yeddyurappa AFP "We charge both of them with receiving kickbacks for making this payment" he said and demanded a CBI probe Rejecting the charge the state power minister said in New Delhi "Yeddyurappa is misleading the public.
