A Roof Overhead Overcrowded and getting worse Nunavuts housing crisis

first_imgKent Driscoll APTN National NewsWhen you ask Iqaluit’s Joamie Lyta to explain just how many people live in her small apartment, she needs to stop and count on her fingers.“Let me count, there’s me, him, my son, my granddaughter, my grandson, my other granddaughter, my nephew, my other son. There’s nine of us,” explained the social housing resident in Iqaluit.Nine in the day time. At night she often adds two more to her over crowded home.“My other two brothers, they come to, to sleep at my house, they got no place to stay,” she said. “So sometimes there’s 11 or 12 in my house.”It sounds extreme, but for Nunavut, this isn’t the exception, it is the rule.Fifty per cent of all homes in Nunavut are social housing – homes with subsidized rent for people who can’t afford it. Of those social units, 63 per cent are in need of major repairs.The wait list to get into those beat up homes is long. One in five of all Nunavut residents are on a waiting list for social housing. And just like Lyta’s home, one in three Nunavut homes house someone who would otherwise be homeless.The unit next to Lyta’s caught on fire, forcing her and her entire family to evacuate. Luckily for them, they were placed in another social housing unit. Until she got the good news, she wasn’t sure what she was going to do.“I was gonna cry, I guess. Or look for a place to stay a while. They gave this house to me, I was so happy, I was crying when they gave it to me,” said Lyta.Why does she do it? Why does she take in so many? She was raised that way. “My Mom taught me, when I was a little girl, to take care of them. To make sure you take care of them, or if they don’t have a place to stay. So I do,” she said.Iqaluit has two realities. Up on the hills overlooking the Nunavut capital, there are private homes that start at $500,000 and can go as high as $900,000. Closer to the downtown, social housing.That difference isn’t lost on Iqaluit’s mayor, Madeleine Redfern.“There is definitely a disparity, even in Iqaluit,” said Redfern. “We need more than social housing. Don’t get me wrong, there are over 250 families in Iqaluit alone on the waiting list for social housing. Those are the types of pressures we’re dealing with.”The Government of Nunavut is scheduled to build 202 housing units over the next two years, in 16 of Nunavut’s communities. Just to get caught up to the current wait list, you would have to build 3,580 homes for 10,500 people.Nunavut’s Housing Minister George Kuksuk turned down APTN’s request for an interview for this story. His staff said the minister was too busy.Redfern said she sees how that backlog and wait feeds into all of Nunavut’s numerous medical and social problems.“It adds to not only pressure for food security, but, school attendance, health issues, there are tremendous other costs because they don’t have enough housing,” she said. “It is a lot of money the government is spending on those other costs, whether it is to deal with health issues,or people who get into trouble with the law, because they’re hurting themselves or their family because they’re in that pressure cooker situation.”Of the 202 homes scheduled to be built over the next two years, 17 of them will not be for social housing, they will be for Government of Nunavut staff housing, usually for people brought in from the south for a specific job.That has the President of Nunavut Tunngavik incorporated (NTI), the group that represents 85 per cent of Nunavut residents who are Inuit, wondering aloud.Aluki Kotierk said that the 85 per cent doesn’t do nearly as well as the remaining 15 per cent.Average income for an Inuit family in Nunavut is just $20,000 a year. For a non-Inuit family, $85,000.“Ninety-nine per cent of the houses in social housing, the tenants are Inuit. Staff housing units are held by non-Inuit. Many of the homes, we hear in the Legislative Assembly, are held vacant, (for jobs) that are to be filled, most often by non-Inuit. Given out great need for Inuit to have housing, one would think that those houses could be built as social housing,” said Koterik.Kotierk sees some hope. There are Inuit who, with training, could build those homes. By getting paid to build those homes, they could afford to live in them. The missing ingredient is training.“I’m starting to become of the view, very much, that the money we invest in Nunavut has to be invested in the people of Nunavut,” said Kotierk. “I think that’s the same for many of the issues we face in Nunavut.”NTI will get their chance to push that trades training. They are sitting on $175 million from a lawsuit against the federal government for not implementing the Nunavut Land Claim. The money came from an out of court settlement, and is earmarked for training.They are facing a ticking time bomb in Nunavut’s demographics. Nunavut has Canada’s youngest and fastest growing population, and many of those young people are already living in a home with three generations. When those kids are having kids, will there be homes for them, or will the cycle continue?kdriscoll@aptn.caFollow @kentdriscolllast_img read more

UNICEF ambassador Roger Moore to meet with disabled children in Kazakhstan

United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Goodwill Ambassador Roger Moore travelled to Kazakhstan today in his first visit to the Central Asian country to help raise awareness and support for vulnerable children, particularly those with disabilities. Accompanied by his wife, Kristina, Mr. Moore’s five-day visit will include an event organized by Special Olympics and UNICEF to highlight the importance of sports and healthy living in developing children’s cognitive skills and providing a sense of social inclusion. In addition, they will visit a home that provides care for abandoned children, including those with disabilities. Kazakhstan has more than 150,000 children with disabilities and only about one-third of them have access to educational and developmental programmes while many others continue to live in state-run institutions. UNICEF and Special Olympics work in partnership throughout the world to champion the rights of children with disabilities and to encourage national action to ratify and implement the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The Convention has increased the status and visibility of disability as a human rights issue. Throughout their trip, Mr. and Mrs. Moore will meet with high-level officials, members of the business community and civil society to stress the importance of working together to help ensure that children with disabilities have access to proper health facilities, education, supportive care and protection against abuse and neglect. Mr. Moore, who achieved worldwide fame for his role as James Bond, has served as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for nearly 20 years, travelling to places such as Cambodia, China, Cost Rica, Ghana, Guatemala, India, Mexico, the Philippines and Zambia to advocate for children’s rights. 16 November 2010United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Goodwill Ambassador Roger Moore travelled to Kazakhstan today in his first visit to the Central Asian country to help raise awareness and support for vulnerable children, particularly those with disabilities. read more

Senate confirms President Barack Obamas nomination of Jacob Lew for Treasury secretary

by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Feb 27, 2013 6:23 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Senate confirms President Barack Obama’s nomination of Jacob Lew for Treasury secretary WASHINGTON – The Senate confirmed Jacob Lew to be Treasury secretary, affirming President Barack Obama’s choice of a budget expert at a time when Congress and the White House are at odds over sharp government spending cuts.The Senate voted 71-26 to support the nomination.Lew, 57, had most recently served as Obama’s chief of staff. He succeeds Timothy Geithner, who completed a tumultuous four-year term in which he helped lead the administration’s response to the financial crisis and recession.He takes over just before automatic spending cuts are set to take effect. He’s likely to take part in any negotiations to reverse the cuts, and also in key budget talks next month to continue funding the government.Lew began his government service in the 1980s as an aide to House Speaker Tip O’Neill. He brings nearly three decades of government service to the job, including two stints as White House budget director.“Mr. Lew is well-qualified to be the nation’s next Treasury secretary,” said Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, a Democrat. “He has demonstrated time and again that he has the knowledge and expertise” to deal with the country’s budget problems.But Republican Sen. Jeff Session, who opposed the nomination, said Lew is the architect of the Obama’s administration’s budget. Sessions said that budget doesn’t reduce the deficit enough.During his confirmation hearing, Lew signalled no major economic policy changes. He advocated a balanced approach to reducing the long-term budget deficit through spending cuts and additional tax revenue.He said he would be open to reforms to Medicare, but he didn’t spell out any details. Lew also said he would work with the committee on a rewrite of the tax code.Beyond the budget, Lew is expected to hew closely to the positions Geithner struck on Europe’s debt crisis, the U.S. relationship with China and the administration’s defence of the Dodd-Frank financial overhaul law that the banking industry has fought to weaken.Some Republicans voted against Lew because they were not satisfied with his answers about his previous employment with Citigroup, including a brief time when he was chief operating officer for an investment unit in 2008. The unit has been criticized for making risky investments that imploded during the financial crisis. And Lew received a bonus of nearly $1 million in early 2009, a time when Citi was being bailed out by taxpayers.Lew told the panel that he didn’t make decisions about the investments being offered to clients. He said his bonus reflected compensation for his work.Sen. Charles Grassley, a Republican, opposed Lew’s nomination. He cited questions about his time at Citi, as well as Lew’s compensation while working as chief operating officer at New York University.“Mr. Lew’s eagerness and skill in obtaining bonuses, severance payments, housing allowances and other perks raises concerns about whether he appreciates who pays the bills,” Grassley said.One potential weakness for Lew: His relative inexperience with financial markets and international economic crises — areas that had played to Geithner’s background. Analysts think Lew will keep pressuring Europe to deal aggressively with its budget and debt issues. But they think this will consume less of his time given that Europe’s debt crisis now poses less of a threat to the global economy.On trade, Lew is expected to keep prodding China. The U.S. trade gap with the world’s second-largest economy hit another record high last year. No breakthrough is expected, though.Lew will also need to calm investors who have grown concerned about possible currency wars after Japan’s new government sought to lower the value of the yen as a way to boost exports and its weak economy. A weaker yen makes Japanese goods cheaper overseas and foreign goods costlier in Japan.And Lew will need to defend the Dodd-Frank Act, which overhauled financial regulation after the 2008 crisis. Since the law was passed in 2010, Wall Street has fought to weaken many of its stricter regulations. read more

Trudeau ministers to discuss Albertas reeling economy during cabinet retreat

KANANASKIS, Alta. – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his 30 ministers holed up Sunday at a luxury mountain resort in Alberta to discuss the devastation wrought by plunging oil prices on the province’s economy.Premier Rachel Notley met privately with Trudeau and then gave a detailed presentation to about half the cabinet in the evening at which she drove home the message that a healthy Alberta economy is a necessary precondition for robust national economic growth.She spoke of the desperate need for a pipeline to get the province’s oil sands crude to tidewater and for a quick start to job-creating infrastructure projects.And she reiterated her objections to a recent boost in Employment Insurance benefits for hard-hit regions of the country, which wound up excluding Edmonton.“I think that the interests of Alberta were well-served today,” she said following her presentation.“I made the case again that Alberta’s economic health really is linked to Canada’s economic health.”However, she got no specific promises on any of the issues she raised.And not all cabinet ministers attended the detailed session with Notley, choosing instead to attend other presentations being given at the same time or to flit from one to another.Among those who didn’t plan to attend Notley’s presentation was Finance Minister Bill Morneau, whose maiden budget last month introduced the EI changes and promised billions in infrastructure funding.“I’m going to another presentation right now. I think hers is over-subscribed,” Morneau told reporters during a brief break.Nevertheless, he said the mountain location of the three-day retreat was “very much on purpose because we wanted to be here in Alberta … to understand better the challenges.”Morneau defended the formula by which the federal government calculated which regions of the country are entitled to beefed up EI benefits but appeared to leave the door open a crack to modifying it.“That’s where we’re at right now and I appreciate that Premier Notley, you know, is anxious to make sure that people across the province are well served.”On pipelines, Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr said the federal government understands “how important the energy sector is for Canada and for Alberta; we know that the sector is going through a very difficult time at the moment.”But he offered no new hope for speedy approval of any of the three proposed pipelines that are currently mired in the environmental review process and facing stiff uphill battles with public opinion.“We want to move our natural resources to tidewater sustainably and we’ve announced a set of principles that will guide us along that way,” Carr said.Notley said she agrees with the approach the Liberal federal government is taking, which she argued is more likely to produce results eventually than the pipeline cheerleader approach taken by the previous Conservative governments in Ottawa and Edmonton.“You know, two Conservative governments — both at a federal level and at a provincial level — came together to fail on the issue of getting a pipeline approved because they paired that with a refusal to deal with climate change and a refusal to deal with the fact that people distrusted the process that was in place,” she said.Like Trudeau, she argued that Canadians are more likely to support a pipeline if they have faith in a beefed up environmental review process.Notley spent some time during her presentation educating federal ministers on her own government’s climate change plan, including a cap on greenhouse gas emissions.Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi, a former Edmonton city councillor, said he talks weekly with his Alberta counterpart and is hopeful that infrastructure money can start flowing soon.“We are working with them to sign bilateral agreements as quickly as possible and our goal is not to lose this construction season,” he said.Earlier Sunday, as the prime minister and his ministers arrived for the retreat, Trudeau said the gathering would give cabinet a chance to focus on the “challenges and opportunities” facing Alberta.It’s also a chance for his cabinet to take stock of what they’ve accomplished in their first six months in power and “all the hard work” that lies ahead, he said.This is the second cabinet retreat Trudeau has held.The first, at a seaside resort in New Brunswick in January, cost almost $150,000 and the price tag for this one is likely to be similar.But Trudeau said it’s important for him and his ministers to get out of the Ottawa bubble.“One of the things we talked about a lot during the … election campaign was the need to get out and be strong voices for our communities in Ottawa,” he said after strolling through a chilly rain with his ministers shortly after arriving at the Delta Lodge at Kananaskis, a spectacular resort nestled in the Rocky Mountains about 80 km. west of Calgary.“And that requires us, MPs and ministers, to be engaged on the ground, connecting with people and that’s exactly what we’re doing.”In addition to Notley, ministers could attend other presentations Sunday by several experts:— Management consultant Dominic Barton, recently appointed by Morneau to head up his economic advisory council, which is supposed to advise the government on how to foster economic growth in the face of the collapse in oil prices.Head of the prestigious global consulting giant McKinsey & Co., Barton has close ties with business and governments in Asia. He was to give a presentation to cabinet about “China and the global growth agenda.”— Michael Barber, one-time adviser to former British prime minister Tony Blair’s government, on “deliverology” — his approach to ensuring that governments actually deliver on their promises. Barber also gave a presentation at Trudeau’s first cabinet retreat.— Dan Gardner, co-author of “Superforecasting: The Art and Science of Prediction.”The retreat wraps up midday Tuesday.

UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (centre) at food distribution center during his visit to Ziway Dugda woreda, Oromia Region. He was accompanied by Demeke Mekonen (Ethiopia), Ertharin Cousin (WFP), and Kyung-wha Kang (OCHA). UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe “The people of this beautiful country are facing their worst drought in thirty years,” Mr. Ban told participants at a donors humanitarian round table convened in the Ethiopian capital in the margins of the 26th African Union Summit. Later in the day, the Secretary-General visited the drought-stricken Oromia region with the Deputy Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Demeke Mekonnen, and Ertharin Cousin, the Executive Director of the UN World Food Programme (WFP). Saying that he was “very moved,” Mr. Ban visited a health post, a water borehole and a food distribution and cash transfer point. “This is a very moving experience for me as Secretary-General to witness myself how the Ethiopian Government and the United Nations agencies, the World Bank, all humanitarian workers are working together to address difficult challenges,” he said noting that the area has been seriously impacted by long spells of drought caused by El Niño climate phenomenon. “It is important that the Government is leading this response and the United Nations is now helping: it is quite moving,” he reiterated. The Secretary-General went on to say that when he saw the people working and trying to get water and trying to improve their health nutrition conditions, it took him back brought more than 60 years ago “when […] I was a young boy in Korea, early 1950s. As you may know, Korea had war at the time. When the war broke out, we were [in a situation] as difficult as people are now here, even more difficult at the time.” He said he was very much grateful to all humanitarian workers at the small health post where he had seen health workers distributing vaccines, and providing check-ups. It was impressive to see that malnutrition levels had dropped significantly and that people had been saved from malaria. “The United Nations is committed to help Ethiopia to overcome this challenge. This challenge may last some time but with continuous concerted efforts, I think we can overcome – and I am very much moved to have seen how hard we are working,” said Mr. Ban. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at a cash transfer point during his visit to Ziway Dugda woreda, Oromia Region. UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe ‹› In the Ethiopian capital, he told the donors’ meeting that the scale of the emergency is too much for any single Government. “The impact of El Niño is unpredictable, but experts say it is likely to affect food security for the next two years,” he stressed. “The Government of Ethiopia has shown remarkable leadership in this drought response. It has made the greatest financial contribution, allocating more than $381 million to the crisis so far,” said the UN chief, noting that the Government-managed Productive Safety Net Programme, in partnership with the World Bank, aims to assist some eight million people with emergency food and cash transfers. Yet, while the United Nations boosted early action through some $25 million from the UN Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) in 2015, more is urgently needed. “Immediate support for Ethiopia will save lives and avoid preventable suffering. Immediate support will also safeguard the impressive development gains that Ethiopia has made over the past years and decades, Mr. Ban explained. Such support would also strengthen Ethiopia’s national distribution channels and social support networks, and build resilience for the future, he underscored. Noting that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agreed by UN Member States last year are based on the promise to leave no one behind, the Secretary-General said that humanitarian crises are the main reason why some 100 million people are currently “left far behind,” in the Horn of Africa and elsewhere. “The World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul on 23 and 24 May will be an opportunity to ensure that we start supporting those furthest behind first,” he noted and expressed the hope that the participants at today’s event are already engaged in the Summit process. “We need to hear your voices in Istanbul,” he said. By contributing to humanitarian aid, donors are helping to fulfil the international community’s pledge to the most vulnerable. Support for the Ethiopian Government and people through the current crisis will be a critical test of our commitment to implementing the SDGs, stressed the UN chief. “We face unrelenting humanitarian needs around the world. Many are generated by conflict and displacement. These human-made crises are extremely difficult to resolve and can last for years or even decade,” he noted, but stressed that the needs generated by El Niño are limited. “We know it will pass, and the situation will improve. This crisis will end.” “Until it does, I urge you to make the investment that is needed now, to support the Ethiopian Government and people through the difficult times ahead, and to build for the future,” said the Secretary-General.

WI v Zimbabwe Cremer Chakabva keep hopes of draw alive

By Liam Brickhill in BulawayoTea Zimbabwe 259 for 7 (Raza 85, Chakabva 48*, Cremer 13*) and 326 lead West Indies 448 by 137 runsSikandar Raza revived Zimbabwe’s innings AFP(ESPNcricinfo) Zimbabwe’s battling rearguard stretched on to tea on the final afternoon of the second Test, Regis Chakabva registering an unbeaten 48 after Sikandar Raza’s 89. Chakabva’s obduracy was matched by his captain, Graeme Cremer, who contributed 13 not out from 105 deliveries to their eighth-wicket stand of 49. Zimbabwe went to the interval at 259 for 7, 137 runs ahead with a minimum of 32 overs to be bowled in the final session.West Indies were probing with both seam and spin, with wickets shared around, and appealed heartily at every opportunity. Jason Holder also used up both of his reviews, but neither the old nor the new ball could prise a limpet-like Chakabva from the crease. With the pitch deteriorating, Chakabva played and missed at several deliveries and even ducked into a Holder bouncer that never got above waist height, but his defence held firm when it really mattered and bad balls were were met with confident strokes.It has been eight innings – and almost three years – since Chakabva last passed fifty in a Test match. A match saving fifty in the evening would keep Zimbabwe hoping, and go some way towards securing his place in the side for their next Test against South Africa.The hosts were also buoyed by Raza’s gritty innings, which stretched for more than five hours and 203 deliveries before he inside edged a Holder inswinger onto his stumps. During a brave, battling knock Raza survived an lbw decision given against him and a withering blow to the knee, cobbling together stands of 98 with PJ Moor, 28 with Malcolm Waller and 38 with Chakabva.Much of his work with Moor came yesterday, and the pair had had added just four runs to their partnership when West Indies broke through almost first thing this morning. Great situational awareness, and some good catching, brought a wicket in just the second over of the day. After a lengthy fielding conference, Jason Holder positioned Shai Hope just so in the gully, having noticed the angled bat that Moor was playing with. The plan worked to perfection, Moor guiding a length delivery straight to the fielder to depart for 42, Zimbabwe 144 for 5.A nervous starter, Waller chipped Gabriel in the air and then edged just short of slip, but seemed to have eased the anxiety with a silky smooth drive through the covers from the fourth ball he faced. He settled in against the quicks, but the introduction of spin quickly brought another wicket. Coming around the wicket and landing a ball in the rough outside leg, Bishoo ripped one across him and a tame poke presented an easy catch to Jermaine Blackwood at slip.Zimbabwe were 172 for 6 when Waller fell an hour or so before lunch and the new ball was available, but as was the case in Zimbabwe’s first innings West Indies decided not to take it straight away. There was still significant movement and inconsistent bounce for the quicks, and the softening old ball also ensured that neither Raza nor Chakabva could get full value for all their shots.Raza, who had survived a West Indies review in the morning, used a review of his own to reverse an lbw decision against him five overs into his partnership with Chakabva. Roach was by this time getting the old ball to reverse alarmingly, and hooped one past Raza’s hopping glance to strike him on the left knee roll. Roach bellowed an appeal, and Dharmasena gave it out almost immediately, but the review showed the ball missing leg stump. In the same over Roach snaked a waspish delivery in viciously to strike Raza on the inner knee. He was able to continue batting, but hobbled his way through to lunch.At the other end, Chakabva opened his account from his 14th delivery, and swiped a brace of boundaries when Bishoo dropped short. He showed some uncertainty outside off stump against the genuine pace of Gabriel, but did enough to survive and keep stretching out Zimbabwe’s lead.West Indies did finally take the new ball in the over before lunch, and Holder used it to break breach Raza’s defences just after the interval. Playing the wrong line to one that jagged in to him, Raza had his off stump disturbed and a window opened for West Indies with Zimbabwe tottering at 210 for 7 with the better part of two sessions remaining.But West Indies had used up all their reviews trying to get rid of Raza, and this detail gained crucial importance as the afternoon wore on. First, Cremer gloved a bouncer from Holder onto his shoulder, the chance being pouched by a leaping Dowrich, but the appeal was turned down. Then, ten minutes before tea, Chase zipped one in to Cremer’s pads, but the appeal lacked conviction and Umpire Dharmasena wasn’t convinced.Replays showed three reds on the ball tracker. Moments before the interval, Chase once again struck Cremer on the pad, but again it was given not out and West Indies could do nothing about the decision. Making the most of the chances, Cremer soaked up over 100 deliveries and, together with Chakabva, he is now very close to making this game safe for Zimbabwe.

Arizona wind farm to produce 500MW power 175000 homes

first_imgLike hydroelectric, geothermal, and other green energy sources, wind does not work everywhere. Wind energy exploits,not a natural resource, but a natural feature, and has very few negative side-effects. The only real problem with wind is its relatively low power output, on the order of 1-3 megawatts per turbine. To generate substantial amounts of power requires significant investment in large scale wind farms — and now BP Wind Energy is doing just that.Nicely out of the way about 40 miles from Kingman in Mojave County, Arizona, this wind farm is set to produce anywhere from 425 to 500 megawatts of power for the area. That’s enough to power 175,000 homes.When I write that these wind farms are large, I mean large. With a projected footprint of over 38,000 acres, this technology surpasses even solar in terms of pure ground use. The project was also amended several times to avoid disturbing the nesting areas of the golden eagle — one of wind power’s main environmental impacts is its tendency to turn birds into small, feathery explosions, sucking them in and chopping them up.Dstribution of turbines over more than 38,000 acres of land.This is all part of President Obama’s pledge to reduce carbon output and increase the production of American-made energy. This serves the dual masters of energy independence and slowing the progress of global climate change. It marks the 46th wind, solar, and geothermal utility-scale project on public lands since 2009.Wind power has made some significant strides lately, both in terms of increased generation per turbine and increased construction of the turbines themselves. Still, it is just one of a suite of green energy solutions, and by far the most ascendant is solar power. While wind, geothermal, and hydro move forward in terms of efficiency, there is still an upper bound to the amount of energy available; a turbine can only maximally collect the amount of kinetic energy carried by the wind or water which turns it. Solar can only soak up the amount of light energy that falls upon it — and that maxima is much, much higher.Still, this wind farm marks one of the most significant investments in green energy production, and unlike some similar proposals, it will not encroach closer than a quarter-mile from private property. Set out in the Mojave, turning in obscurity and creating both power and job with a minimal environmental footprint, it’s difficult to come up with too things to complain about.last_img read more

AnheuserBusch Orders 800 Hydrogenelectric Semis

first_imgStay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Fiber-Based Six-Pack Can Rings Offer Eco-Friendly Alternative to PlasticEven More Kellogg’s Cereal Gets Re-Born as Craft Beer center_img With 30,000 employees and 12 breweries, Anheuser-Busch is about as big as it gets in the North American brewing scene… So it’s great to hear that they made a big investment in green transport.Huge might be a better adjective, really. The company has just announced an order for 800 of Nikola Motors’ zero-emissions hydrogen-electric semis. At a price of $375,000 each, we’re talking about $300 million worth of trucks. Nikola had already been seeing a brisk flow of pre-orders. The total tally is now upwards of $9 billion.This is Anheuser-Busch’s second EV announcement in the past six months. Back in December, they trumpeted ordering 40 Tesla Semis.There likely won’t be too much overlap in the company’s fleet, however. These are very different trucks and they’ll service different routes. Anheuser-Busch has plenty of those, given that they’re trucking beer to some 500 wholesalers and distributors.The Tesla Semis will handle shorter hauls. Elon Musk initially said that the battery-electric Semi would have a range of about 500 miles, later upping the figure to 600.That’s more in line with the low-end of the range for one of Nikola Motors’ hydrogen-electric trucks. Their maximum is up around 1200 miles, which is more than enough to roll from St. Louis to Detroit and back without refueling.Nikola’s trucks have a slight edge there, too. Refilling from empty takes about 20 minutes.

Nikola Motors plans to have a network of 700 hydrogen stations online in the U.S. and Canada.The move to hydrogen-electric trucks will make a major difference in Anheuser-Busch’s carbon footprint. The company estimates that once all 800 are on the road shipping emissions will have been cut by 18%. It’s equivalent, they say, to taking around 13,000 cars off the road annually.last_img read more

Nintendo Adds Labo VR Support to Mario and Zelda

first_imgStay on target ‘Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Was Final Mission From Late Nintendo President In just a few days Nintendo is about to give Switch owners their own way to hop on board the virtual reality bandwagon. The Nintendo Labo VR Kit lets players build their own headset and accessories out of cardboard and combine them with Switch hardware to make straight up magic. We recently got to try out the VR Kit and will have a full review coming soon. But right now we can say the games themselves are smaller experiences, like previous Labo kits.However, there’s nothing stopping VR from working with more substantial experiences either. And apparently Nintendo agrees because later this month Labo VR headset support is coming to the two biggest games on Nintendo Switch: Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.Experience 2 beloved games in new ways with the Toy-Con VR Goggles from the #NintendoLabo: VR Kit! https://t.co/be8xudP2PK pic.twitter.com/M0C6w59lIT— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) April 5, 2019Judging a VR game without seeing it in VR is tough but here’s what we think is going on here. Super Mario Odyssey adds a handful of VR minigames taken from the main campaign like collecting music notes or just exploring the various colorful kingdoms. It reminds us of other VR 3D platformers like Lucky’s Tale or Trover Saves The Universe. Fans of Super Mario 3D Land should also enjoy seeing Mario in 3D again. But really this makes us wish for Super Mario Odyssey DLC.The Zelda VR support is much more shocking however. Instead of a side mode this appears to be the entire adventure playable in VR in the vein of Skyrim or No Man’s Sky in VR. That sounds cool and impressive but the lo-fi nature of Labo VR hardware gives us pause. How will the framerate hold up? What about resolution? Are we expected to hold the Joy-Con up to our heads the whole time? How will this compare to this homebrew Zelda VR game on Switch?We won’t have to wait long to see how well VR gels with these AAA Nintendo experiences. Labo VR support comes to Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as a free update on April 25. But where’s the Virtual Boy Virtual Console you cowards! For more on Nintendo Labo check out this pop-up piano book and here are our thoughts on the Labo Vehicle Kit.last_img read more

Does Sitkas Baranov statue impress or oppress

first_imgAlexander Baranov was the first general manager of the Russian-American Company, and the statue of him was erected to honor the role of commerce in Sitka’s past. (KCAW Photo/Katherine Rose)Earlier this fall — right around the October Alaska Day Festival — a group of Sitkans renewed a conversation about a piece of bronze art in heart of downtown. Alexander Baranov was the first general manager of the Russian-American Company, and the statue of him was erected to honor the role of commerce in Sitka’s past. But for many, Baranov and the Russian-American Company are synonymous with colonization and the systematic oppression of Alaska Natives.Listen nowThere’s a bronze statue in front of Harrigan Centennial Hall. It’s nearly to scale – a man sitting hunched over beneath flags flapping in the wind, looking pensively in the distance. The man is Alexander Baranov, manager of the Russian American Company in the early 1800s. On the plaque beneath him is a quote:“That we may dwell in amity and peace forever in this region.”But for Louise Brady, the statue doesn’t bring her peace.“It is, to me, a symbol of epidemics, of assimilation, of bad policy, of destruction of a way of life,” Brady said.Last summer, as momentum grew in the South to tear down Confederate monuments, some Sitkans started to wonder about their own legacies to the past. Larry Edwards wrote a letter to the editor of the Sitka Sentinel calling for the removal of the Baranov statue. Martina Kurzer, his wife, signed it.“This thing about the Baranov Statue didn’t bother me at all in the beginning until I learned the finer fabric of Sitka,” Kurzer said. “And I started to understand simply how having the statue there rubs in the fact again and again that the people who have been here on this land for 10,000 years are not in charge of this land anymore.”After the letter appeared in the paper, it was re-posted on the Facebook page “Sitka Chatters” and ignited a comment war. Some called for the statue’s removal. Others defending it. The post has since been taken down. Brady says there’s a reason some don’t understand her discomfort with the statue.“I think it ties into privilege,” Brady said. “Being able to say ‘I love living here, this is a beautiful place.’ I can just be here without understanding that there’s people who’ve been here for 10,000 years who were just granted citizenship less than 100 years ago.”“Now that we know so much more about trauma and what trauma does to a person on a health level, we can ask is it still timely to have the statue of the oppressor right there in front of the community center?” Kurzer asked.The controversy swirling around the Baranov statue isn’t anything new. A gift to the city from Lloyd and Barbara Hames in 1989, the statue caused tension from the get-go. The night before the statue was dedicated, someone cut off its nose. That was after discovering that the head would be too hard to remove. The artist was able to repair it with putty for the ceremony the next day. It was defaced again in 2013, with cuts to its nose and forehead.“Has the statue had controversy surrounding it? Yes. But maybe controversy is good. Because it leads to conversations,” Hal Spackman of the Sitka Historical Society said.Spackman says the statue tells the story  of the Russian settlement. He says it was built to honor Sitka’s merchant past. While that doesn’t reflect the feelings of all Sitkans on their history, he says the fact that it happened means it’s worth remembering.“We need to value all perspectives,” Spackman said. “It doesn’t mean that we devalue any perspectives.  And I hope we all can use those conversations to not just celebrate history but discuss history in a way that’s productive and moves us forward as a society.”But Brady thinks the perspective the statue represents is one that’s told too often.“I think that’s the power of the narrative and who gets to create the meaning,” Brady said. “Sure he can stay there if we get to tell the whole story. Maybe we can have a Tlingit woman warrior there?”Or a Tlingit leader. Earlier this month, a group of people met at Sitka Public Library to discuss commissioning a statue of K‘alyáan, who led the Kiks.ádi in the battle of 1804. The plan is not necessarily meant as a response or a foil to the other statue, but it’s hard not to note the contrast.Brady says putting up a new statue isn’t a solution. Conversations need to happen, and that’s harder than it sounds.“It isn’t easy. I wish it was as easy as putting up, answering statue for statue,” Brady said. “But unless we have that dialogue- and I think one of the things the dialogue gets so inflammatory is because racism is such an emotionally charged word. It’s difficult to have that conversation without having a language.”For now, the bronze Baranov still sits downtown. Tourists take pictures of this relatively small monument most unaware of the large conversation that surrounds him.last_img read more

M6 to be shut for up to 24 hours as 800 tonne

first_imgThe transporter that will be used to transport the centre section of the bridge (Image: Highways England) Highways England say they will not be using explosives to demolish the bridge, which is no longer in use, but warned there will be some noise as it is demolished. It is the first of two bridges that are set to be torn down as part of the M6 upgrade – with a second 24-hour closure due to take place next year to remove the Burton Bank footbridge near Stafford, which is too low for the required safety clearance. Read More’They have had six weeks to do these road works – why do them now?’ – parents slam timing as school warn closure will cause high levels of disruption That bridge will be replaced – with the current public right of way across the motorway maintained. A Highways England spokesman said the Smart Motorways Project would be completed in the area by 2022. He added: “Highways England is increasing capacity on a 17-mile stretch of the M6 between junctions 13 and 15 by turning the hard shoulder into an extra traffic lane and installing up-to-date technology that will help keep traffic flowing more smoothly. This creates a smart motorway. Creswell Home Farm Bridge will be torn down in September (Image: Highways England) Highways England smart motorways project sponsor, Peter Smith, said: “This is part of our plan to ultimately improve journeys in this area by adding extra capacity and technology to the motorway. Read MoreHighways inspectors: ‘7 inch deep pothole is not a risk’ “The bridge is no longer in use and is too narrow for the upgraded motorway which will have an extra lane in each direction. Demolishing it is a big and complex job and to do it safely we need to use both carriageways of the motorway, which means it will be closed for up to 24 hours. “We’re doing all we can to minimise disruption though and that is why we are arranging to take the centre section away in one piece, rather than breaking it up which would take more time. “I’d like to thank motorists, businesses and residents in advance for their patience. I’d also urge anyone wanting to use the M6 in that area on 22 and September 23 to plan an alternative route to avoid congestion between Stoke-on-Trent and Stafford. “Please also allow extra travel time and fuel for your journey.” Read MorePlans lodged for 500-home estate in Stoke-on-Trent as developer pledges to improve A500 roundabout and busy junction The bridge is almost 250ft in length and will be dismantled, with the 150-tonne centre section set to be lifted clear and taken away in one piece on a 90ft long specialist transporter. The rest of the old bridge, which was built in 1961 and contains enough concrete to fill 40 tipper trucks, will be taken away later to be recycled and used in the construction of the upgraded M6. Burton Bank footbridge is also set to be torn down and replaced next year (Image: Google) “This will lead to more reliable journeys on a currently heavily congested route and boost regional growth. “The upgrade will also give drivers better information to help with their journeys, while maintaining high levels of safety. “Work began earlier this year, with bridge strengthening works to prepare for the main scheme. The central reservation barrier is currently being upgraded to a safer, concrete design near junction 15. The work is being limited to a 6-mile stretch only of narrow lanes through to the autumn. “As the central reservation barrier works move south, work will follow behind using contraflow which will speed up the works on the motorway verges and more than halve the number of motorway closures normally required for these works.”center_img Get the biggest Daily stories by emailSubscribeSee our privacy noticeThank you for subscribingSee our privacy noticeCould not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailThe M6 motorway will be closed for up to 24 hours in North Staffordshire – while a bridge over the carriageway is torn down. The Creswell Home Farm bridge, which weighs 800 tonnes, will be dismantled over the weekend of Saturday September 22 and Sunday September 23. As a result the M6 will be shut in both directions between junction 14 (Stafford North) and junction 15 (Stoke-on-Trent) over that weekend – with the closure signposted as far away as Dover and Carlisle to advise traffic to avoid the route. The motorway will be shut from 8pm on Saturday and reopen on Sunday as soon as the work is completed. Highways England said traffic will be diverted onto the A34 Stone Road, which travels through Stone and Newcastle Borough, as had been agreed with councils in the area.

Alleged Mexican drug lord pleads not guilty in US court

Martínez then allegedly orchestrated the movement of the cocaine shipments in the United States “by using an elaborate transportation network of trains, tractor trailers, and other vehicles.”Over the years Martínez allegedly worked for at least two drug cartels, including the powerful Sinaloa syndicate headed by Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, prosecutors said.During their investigation U.S. agents impounded 7,500 kilograms of cocaine in five raids in New York, Texas and Chicago.The next hearing in the case is set for Jan. 20.

White House Notebook Obama faces family politics in Kenya

first_img Top Stories Sponsored Stories NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — What happens when an American president invites his African relatives to dinner at a Nairobi hotel? A lot of family members show up — more, perhaps, than he even knew he had.The day after dining with about three dozen relatives here, Obama reflected on the time they spent together “just catching up.” He said some were distant relatives he’d never met before, despite visiting Kenya twice in the past. Chuckling, he recalled the “lengthy explanations” about how one relative or another was connected to the Obama clan. “I think the people of Kenya will be familiar with the need to manage family politics sometimes in these extended families,” Obama said with a knowing grin.With a hint of frustration, Obama said he had told his family how sorry he was he couldn’t spend more quality time with them on this visit. Logistical and security considerations prevented Obama from visiting Kogelo, where his father lived and is buried. But Obama said once he leaves office, he’ll have a better opportunity to reconnect.“The next time I’m back, I may not be wearing a suit. The first time I came here, I was in jeans and a backpack,” Obama said, recalling his first trip nearly 30 years ago.He may also bring back with him a few relatives of his own. Obama said after leaving the White House, he plans to return with first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia.“They have great love for this country and its people,” he said.___Kenyans eager to have their country in the spotlight during President Barack Obama’s visit have been irked by a news report describing the East African nation as a “hotbed of terror.”Kenyans quickly mobilized a Twitter campaign using the hashtag #SomeoneTellCNN to correct what many here have called an exaggeration by the television network. Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall President Uhuru Kenyatta even joined in, telling attendees at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit that they will find Kenya to be “a hotbed of vibrant culture, spectacular natural beauty, and a wonderful people with infinite possibility.” The crowd laughed and applauded at his remarks.Kenya has struggled to contain the threat from al-Shabab militants based in neighboring Somalia. Al-Shabab, a group linked to al-Qaeda, has conducted major attacks in Kenya, including the 2013 attack on Nairobi’s Westgate mall and an April attack in Garissa town that killed nearly 150 people.CNN later added an editors’ note to its story on its website that read: “The headline and lead of this article has been recast to indicate the terror threat is a regional one.” A CNN spokeswoman said the network had no further comment.Kenyan troops are deployed in Somalia to counter al-Shabab, and the United States has carried out drone strikes against suspected militants there.___Obama’s first full day in Africa came with a solemn reminder of the past.In between meetings in Nairobi, Obama placed a red-and-white wreath at the site of the 1998 bombing of the U.S. Embassy, bowing his head for a moment before studying the names of the victims etched into a brick wall. He was joined at the site by his national security adviser, Susan Rice, who was the top U.S. diplomat to Africa at the time of the bombing. 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility 0 Comments   Share   Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Although the memorial isn’t a crime scene, the yellow tape local authorities used to rope it off for Obama’s visit suggested otherwise.“Crime Scene Do Not Cross” the tape warned in capital letters. Perhaps it was the only tape available.Extremists simultaneously attacked the U.S. embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, on Aug. 7, 1998. The Kenya attack killed more than 200 Kenyans and 12 Americans at the embassy.Thousands were injured, including Julie Ogoye, a Kenyan government worker, who suffered grievous injuries and has long questioned whether the United States will provide financial compensation.“I just want to know what his view is on the issue,” Ogoye said of Obama.___With his record on Africa being challenged, Obama pushed back on the notion that America’s first black president hasn’t done as much as his predecessors to help Africa’s development.In the run-up to his trip, Obama faced comparisons to President George W. Bush, whose PEPFAR program steered huge sums of money into efforts to fight the AIDS epidemic in Africa. Rather than downplay Bush’s accomplishments, Obama said he was proud of the work previous administrations did. He added that PEPFAR had saved millions of lives. How men can have a healthy 2019 Four benefits of having a wireless security system “This isn’t a beauty contest between presidents,” he told reporters.On multiple occasions, Obama sought to defend his “Power Africa” initiative, which aims to double sub-Saharan access to electricity but has been criticized for failing to deliver any actual megawatt gains since Obama announced it in 2013.Building power plants takes time, Obama said, even in the United States. He promised that ultimately, millions more people will have reliable electrical power, boosting economic productivity in the process.In an attempt to showcase Power Africa, Obama toured five exhibits from Power Africa partners on display at the business summit, including solar panels.Obama said Africa has a chance to “leapfrog” over dirty energy — meaning fossil fuels like coal and oil that must be burned — to cleaner sources like solar. One presenter told Obama that his invention repurposed biofuel and showed off a set-up included a device resembling a pot with a hose snaking out from the top.“Either that or you’re making moonshine,” Obama told him.___AP White House Correspondent Julie Pace contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press.
