THEY’RE HEADING INTO the fourth day of counting in Midlands-North West, after less than 300 votes were separating the last candidates in the running following the latest count. No-ones would argue that the process isn’t long and laborious — but it’s also transparently democratic.The country has a fraught relationship with e-voting, having wasted €51 million on a failed experiment 12 years ago. That said, how long do we have to wait before we begin discussing it again? Is it off the cards forever?The Seanad was told yesterday that the country’s voting system is not fit for purpose, but regarding e-voting, a FF senator said “I am not going there”.What do you think? Poll Results: We should consider e-voting again. (2963) The system works, let’s stick with it. (1968) The system works, let’s stick with it.We should consider e-voting again.I have no opinion.VoteAs always, comments below… Let’s have a heated debate. I have no opinion. (208)

Une conférence internationale pour protéger les oiseaux migrateursLes oiseaux d’eau migrateurs sont de plus en plus menacés par les activités humaines et le changement climatique. Pour sauvegarder ces fragiles espèces, une conférence internationale qui a lieu en France entend mettre en place des mesures urgentes.Chaque année les oiseaux d’eau migrateurs, telle que les barge rousse, sarcelle d’été, flamants roses et autres cigognes parcourent des milliers de kilomètres, parfois à très haute altitude “en s’orientant grâce aux étoiles, à la position de la terre et aux champs magnétiques”. Ces oiseaux dont la survie dépend des zones humides sont pourtant menacés par des choses beaucoup plus terre à terre.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Selon l’ONG Birdlife international, 10% de ces espèces sont en danger d’extinction à cause de l’activité humaine. En effet, au réchauffement climatique (essentiellement d’origine humaine), lignes électriques, éoliennes, plateformes pétrolières off-shore, produits agrochimiques, s’ajoutent comme autant d’obstacles à la migration des espèces. Car les marais, tourbières, mangroves ou estuaires qui contiennent les poissons nécessaires à la poursuite des longs voyages des oiseaux sont menacées par l’agriculture intensive et les programmes hydrauliques.C’est notamment le cas, au Sénégal, où se trouve le Parc national des oiseaux du Doudj, l’une des plus grandes réserves ornithologiques mondiales. Le développement de la riziculture et l’endiguement du fleuve Sénégal mettent en danger ce sanctuaire, fréquenté par plus de trois millions d’oiseaux chaque année. C’est pour cette raison que 65 Etats d’Europe, d’Afrique et du Moyen Orient ont décidé de s’associer lors d’une vaste conférence dont le but est de protéger ces oiseaux d’eau migrateurs “tout au long du cycle de leurs déplacements”, depuis la Russie jusqu’en Afrique parfois. Elle se tient cette semaine à La Rochelle. Cette ville française du littoral atlantique constitue justement un point de passage obligé pour de nombreuses espèces à cette période de l’année. La Conférence internationale vise en particulier à améliorer l’accord entre les pays et à prendre des mesures coordonnées. En tout 300 représentants des Etats, ONG et scientifiques s’intéresseront à 255 espèces. La France entend défendre “un projet d’action spécifique pour l’Afrique”, indique une de ses représentantes, Marianne Courouble citée par l’AFP.Le 14 mai 2012 à 12:32 • Maxime Lambert

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, August 22, 2017 – Providenciales – Police say there was no crime committed by the security company residents had seen being searched on Monday early afternoon outside of Quality Supermarket. It was thought it was a daytime heist somehow involving the security firm.In a statement issued by Police today, it was explained: “The Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police wishes to clarify a rumor that is circulating on Social Media and Whatsapp that a ‘Robbery’ had taken place yesterday (Monday 21st August 2017) at the Quality Supermarket on Industrial Road.”It was further shared by Police that, “Around 10:40am that day, acting on information, the Tactical Unit officers conducted a stop and search on a three men at the mentioned location for illegal firearms. The three men were further detained and taken to the Police Headquarters for questioning and later released.”A statement issued by former police and security company owner, #EvanSpencer of Spence Security & Investigation Services expressed outrage at the bold move by Police, who had to admit to being wrong. Spencer was concerned that the public search of security guards, one man reportedly made to get onto the ground, shows the lack of connection there is between Police and security firms in the country.A veteran in the field, Mr. Spencer said he met with the men who work for his son’s firm, Fortress Security Services upon his return to TCI on Monday.“This is shameful on their part to carry out a major public sting operation on a security company and faultless arrested all the security personnel handcuffed in public for NOTHING; no wrong doing at all. These young man meet with me yesterday, the look of despair of disbelief plus the discouragement I saw on their faces was very disappointing, because they all express the same concerns; we are truly afraid of the police department and the trust factor is totally damaged now.”Despite questions from Magnetic Media to explain the handling of this matter, Police said there was no further comment but did reiterate in that media statement, “Therefore to clarify, it was not a Robbery.”#MagneticMediaNews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#EvanSpencer, #magneticmedianews

As reported by ASA CEO Steve Censky in an email update last week, the four Ag Committee principals involved in the farm bill conference (House Chairman Frank Lucas and Ranking Member Collin Peterson and Senate Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow and Ranking Member Thad Cochran) were able to reach agreement on a draft framework for Title 1 commodity programs on Dec. 4. Further progress in finalizing the legislation was delayed when the analyst with the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) responsible for “scoring” Title 1 was stranded in New Jersey due to a snow storm, however, press reports now suggest that the analysis has been completed, and Chairman Lucas stated that the cost is “on the money.” The four principals are meeting again today, and announcement of at least some of the details could come before the weekend.Based on reports, Title 1 would be structured similarly to the House bill, with producers required to choose between a Price Loss Coverage (PLC) option and an Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) or revenue loss option for the five years of the bill (covering the 2014 through 2018 crops). The PLC program would include reference prices close to the House levels as well. A significant difference from both bills, however, would be that payments under both the PLC and ARC programs would be based on either a farm’s historical acreage bases or on updated bases, using average plantings during the last five years (2009-2013). Payments under both programs in both the House and Senate bills had been tied to crops planted in the current year. ASA has strongly supported keeping payments “decoupled” from current plantings in order to reduce the risks of skewing planting decisions and of adverse trade decisions by the World Trade Organization (WTO).Other issues requiring resolution include the amount by which the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), previously known as food stamps is cut, with expectations that the reduction will be around $8.8 billion over ten years compared to $4 billion in the Senate bill and $39 billion in the House bill. Conferees are also likely to vote on whether to modify Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) requirements and whether to adopt a provision included in the House bill by Rep. Steve King (R-IA) to preempt state laws that set standards for agricultural products in interstate commerce.The principals are expected to meet again next week to address these and other outstanding issues. Then their staffs and Congressional lawyers will work over the Holidays to put the agreement in final legislative form. The full Conference of 41 House and Senate Members will likely meet after Congress returns to Washington on Jan. 7 to vote on these and perhaps other remaining items and on the Conference Report itself. The bill will then go to the Senate and House floors for final passage, probably during the week of Jan.13.ASA and state affiliates have worked hard on this legislation for a very long three years, and we all very much hope that Congress will overcome any hurdles which may remain and finally get this farm bill done by mid to late January.

TACOMA — As Washington prepares to open its first retail marijuana stores in the next few months, tens of thousands of military service members have been warned not to shop in any of them.They face criminal charges and career-ending discipline if caught with a substance still banned by the federal government.“Our soldiers understand what’s legal,” Lt. Gen. Stephen Lanza, the senior Army officer at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, said in an interview last week. “From our perspective, marijuana or any type of illegal drug is something that’s not tolerated.”The prohibition isn’t limited to active-duty service members. Shortly after state voters passed an initiative legalizing marijuana in 2012, Washington’s National Guard commander sought to clear up any misunderstandings by citizen soldiers who might have questions about the law.“Use of marijuana is illegal under federal law and Department of Defense policy,” Maj. Gen. Bret Daugherty wrote in a December 2012 memo. “Recent passage of Initiative 502 legalizing marijuana under Washington state law does not change this policy. All soldiers and airmen are hereby ordered not to possess or use marijuana at any time.”Pot isn’t allowed on a military base, even if it’s for medicinal purposes. As far as the military is concerned, there’s no such thing as medical marijuana.

A Pair of industry Vets told listeners during FOLIO:’s “Analyzing Web Development Options” Webinar last month about the best tools for tackling site development on continually-shrinking budgets.While digital “budgets were tens of millions of dollars” years ago, “in the past few years, Web 2.0, widgets and SaaS (Software as a Service) have enabled publishers to launch a site for next to nothing,” says Joe Galarneau, SVP of operations and CIO for Newsweek, Inc. “You can still spend a lot of money on the Web, but you don’t have to in order to have a great Web presence.”Even if you’re late to the online party, Galarneau says: “It’s never too late to start. Sometimes there are even advantages to starting late in the game.” He cites Hearst’s zero to 60 move to become a leader in the digital space after discontinuing outsourcing its Web operations to iVillage (due to iVillage’s acquisition by NBC Universal in 2006). Even Newsweek lacked an independent site until 2007, when it launched a Web presence in conjunction with parent Washington Post Company.While it’s imperative for publishers to examine their content and monetization strategies before delving into Web design, Jason Brightman, director of Web design for IDG’s PCWorld and Macworld, notes the plus side of digital space: a lack of brand loyalty. “People go to the best info and the best features,” he says. “As publishers, we’re into text on a page, but more and more, that’s not working. I’d suggest asking yourselves: What would Google do? Google creates simple applications that do things really, really well. Publishers need to be in the mindset of building applications instead of just publishing articles.” Levers of Cost ReductionConsiderations for site cost reduction include offshore development—hosting your site versus third party Web hosting versus cloud computing (Newsweek has had great success with the Amazon cloud, Galarneau says). Yet another method for inexpensive site creation is in making smart software choices, like widget, SaaS providers and open source CMS options, says Galarneau. While tech is key, so are staffers, thinks Brightman. “In the old days, people would invest in Oracle and build out other crazy technologies,” he says. “But in these times, it’s better to invest in people who understand this stuff and are capable of looking ahead at what’s coming next. There are so many free tools and services that you can use to integrate and update your site without spending money.” As the former director of Web and emerging technologies at Harris Publications from 2002-2007, Brightman says they ran XXL’s site, XXLmag.com, off of the WordPress installation. “WordPress is a fantastic, free CMS with thousands of plugins. A blog is just a stripped down CMS,” he says. XXLmag.com was pulling in 25 million page views per month with this platform. Get the ToolsSo, what are the necessary tools for cost reduction while executing a quality final product? For site development, Galarneau recommends Squarespace, a fully-hosted and managed platform for a blog or site; Weebly, which offers a drag and drop interface and free domain hosting; and SiteKreator, a Web site platform that offers visitor metric analysis, online marketing campaigns and community. Blogging platform suggestions include Typepad, WordPress and Blogger.For the majority of publishers in the Twitter world, Brightman recommends Tweetdeck.com, a browser that organizes and displays multiple Twitter feeds, and tools from Smashing Magazine’s “99 Twitter Tools”. Brightcove, Magnify.net, Ooyala and Fliqz are solid video platforms, and OpenAds.org is the pick for advertising since it can “run, track and manage campaigns just like DoubleClick, but for free,” says Brightman.For those not yet using analytics, Brightman suggests beginning with free programs like Google Analytics or Quantcast.com. “Between all of these, you can create a site to compete with anyone out there,” he says.

Magic Leap has been reluctant to reveal too much about their upcoming augmented reality headset. Now, however, we know that you’ll look like a comic book villain when you wear it.Thanks to a design patent that was awarded to Magic Leap this week we’ve gotten a glimpse at what they’re working on. Rather than going for the default bulky goggle look, Magic Leap’s headset looks like it will cover most of your face. Throw on a blue helmet and you’ll be all set for a little Cobra Commander cosplay.One other interesting note from the design patent is that Magic Leap refers to their creation as a VR headset. That’s terminology they’ve been careful to avoid in the past, preferring to refer to their particular brand of visual wizardry as “cinematic reality.” The demos they’ve treated us to so far look similar to what Microsoft is working toward with Hololens.They’ve played things pretty close to their chest so far, but Magic Leap may have to reveal more of their secrets very soon. Not because of a big marketing push, though. They’re locking horns with former employees Gary Bradski and Adrian Kaehler in court over the technology that makes their headset tick.Magic Leap probably shouldn’t wait too much longer to show off actual hardware anyway. Now that Microsoft has opened up the Windows Holographic platform to its OEM partners, there could be a tidal wave of Hololens-like headsets on the way… and Microsoft has already shown off a real Hololens setup doing things that are very similar to what Magic Leap wants you to believe their headset can do.

Advertisement It wasn’t that long ago that Derek Carr was a consensus choice as one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL. In 2016, he was considered a viable MVP candidate before going down with a season ending broken leg. In 2018, under Jon Gruden, Carr is a broken man and living in a really dark place.Yesterday, while being completely dominated in a 27-3 loss to the Seahawks in London, Carr may have hit rock bottom after injuring his arm on a fourth quarter sack that forced him from the game. After the play, longtime Bay Area radio host Damon Bruce posted a video of the aftermath of the injury that showed Carr literally in tears on the ground. Surely the injury was painful, but the tears seem to be about more than just the play. Congrats, Jon Gruden. Helluva start to the year. Carr may need a change of scenery if he wants to save his career.The breaking point is here. Damn. #Raiders pic.twitter.com/bAAkwygaVE— Damon Bruce (@DamonBruce) October 14, 2018

Finding five ticks on your beloved dog in one day is a cause for concern. Finding 50 is a reason to panic. Given my limited experience as a dog owner, I came close to panicking but instead started looking for solutions and knowledge to control the problem and prevent harm to Luna.The result is an eight-page paper outlining how to rid your dog of ticks. Contact me at the address below for a free copy. I encourage anyone working with pets to distribute it to their mailing lists. Any print or electronic publication is also encouraged and I’m hoping someone will take the time to translate the piece into Spanish to reach more owners.This was a collective effort. Thanks go first to my friend and neighbor Sandra Philbrick, from whom I’ve learned so much about dogs. Thanks to Mary Beth Ryan, Paul Montgomery, Paul Forest and Dainna Morales, and thanks to Lisa Bradshaw for her knowledge of organic treatments, to Sallyanne Monti and Mickey Neal who have saved sick dogs here and in the U.S., and to my colleague, T. Babe Hopkins, for sharing her very extensive experience.Thanks to the veterinary offices of Sharinne Chacón as well, and kudos to elcoco.co for being the first to publish the piece. –Kent Cartheykcarthey@aol.com Facebook Comments No related posts.

No related posts. Gardeners often ask about how to grow garlic in the tropics, and I warn them that it’s not a simple undertaking. Because garlic is an exotic species introduced to the New World tropics in colonial days, it is not well adapted to our hot and humid conditions. It’s also a biennial plant with a long growth cycle. Gardeners can work around this, however, by planting garlic in pots around the home in sunny areas on porches or in greenhouse conditions. When you can control the amount of water, so the soil can dry out between waterings, garlic will flourish.Use a 12-inch pot or recycled container filled with strained organic compost fertilizer. Between 3 and 6 cloves of garlic can be planted superficially in a 6-inch circle with the tips pointing upward. Try to plant a new container each month, so you’ll have a continuing supply of fresh garlic greens and garlic bulbs. Keep your pots on stands or a table to keep the bugs away. As the garlic grows, select the tender green leaves from some of the garlic plants and leave others to mature into bulbs. It takes six or more pots to have a steady supply of garlic for the home. The plants can be sprayed with soluble organic fertilizers and compost tea to feed the roots. Prevent leaf diseases by including citrus seed oil extract or trichoderma inoculants.The green leaves of garlic are a nutritious addition to salads and dressings, and Garlic has been used for centuries as food and medicine. Using fresh garlic in your diet is a good preventative health practice, since garlic is a strong antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agent, which works to prevent unwanted microbes from living in your intestines or cells. Garlic also helps to prevent worms and other parasites from getting established in your digestive tract. Recent research has shown garlic to be an effective agent against viral and bacterial infections in the body. The major ingredient, allyl, acts as a natural antibiotic when used in large doses. Garlic has also proven effective in reducing high blood pressure and cholesterol. Use garlic pills for acute or chronic illnesses. Use garlic cloves and greens daily in salads as a preventative measure for protecting your health. Garlic can be prepared in several ways for healing purposes. For example, a thin slice of a raw garlic clove can be taped on to warts or boils to treat them. Apply a fresh piece of garlic in the morning and evening. The treatment usually takes three days to one week for results. Garlic capsules are also useful in treating infections, circulatory problems and digestive problems, particularly parasites. Take two capsules every two hours during the day.For more information on tropical gardening – naturally – contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://thenewdawncenter.info/blog.html.

Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Comments Share Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact It’s been speculated that Horton would be in line for the job — or a top job somewhere.“That’s the nature of the business, we know how it goes,” Campbell said. “He will be a great head coach in this league, so I wouldn’t be mad at him if that happened.“It’s just the way the business is, but I love playing for him and I hope I can play for him for a long time.”To a man, everyone on the defense was hopeful Horton would not go anywhere. Linebacker Daryl Washington said “hopefully he somehow does stay” and cornerback Patrick Peterson lamented the fact that the defense would have to start over if Horton left.Every player understands it’s possible Horton has coached them for the last time, though as of now it appears there’s a chance one of the game’s rising coaching stars will stick around.“He’s important to us,” safety Kerry Rhodes said. “He’s brought a different mentality for us on that side of the ball and he’s a guy that we know is a hot commodity, we know that teams are going to come after him.”At a Monday afternoon press conference, team president Michael Bidwill confirmed that Horton will indeed be among the first candidates to be interviewed for the post. Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires TEMPE, Ariz. — Calais Campbell did not know it at the time, but when he told the assembled media Monday that when he spoke highly about defensive coordinator Ray Horton, he may have been talking about his future head coach.May have, anyway.With news that the Cardinals fired Ken Whisenhunt Monday came the natural question of who the team would get to replace him. Whisenhunt, after all, was in charge for the last six years and had some success, so people wonder what’s next for the franchise.

New York, New York – Reported by Mike Espindle for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineIf football is a game of inches, the luxury sedan game is played out on a scale of millimeters. Oftentimes subtle engineering, throbbing engine power and cutting-edge design all pull together in the cockpit, where nuances of dash instrumentation, pedal feel and wheel and control locations can make all the difference. Simply said, the Audi A8 L W12 possesses one of the most intuitive and effective driver’s sides I’ve ever experienced.On my early summer scoot up to the Adirondack Mountains from New York City, the shift paddles practically dropped onto my fingertips when it was time to goose the seamless eight speed transmission and explore the true power of the W12 engine (which, needless to say, was pretty uncanny). Braking, so critical for such a heavy vehicle (4,773 pounds), was intuitive to the point of being almost eerie, like the car knew what I wanted to do before I did. A large center stack offers a plethora of functions, but all were easy to decipher and locate with a quick glance. Seat comfort is world class, and the Bang & Olufsen sound system quality is comparable to much more rarefied luxury sedans.Besting a base A8 by five inches of wheelbase, 128 horses and 2.1 liters of displacement (the power plant is officially rated at 6.3 liters, 500hp), those seemingly small improvements, like the finely tuned interior approach, again make a big difference. You’ll experience a 0 to 60mph surge in just 4.4 seconds, with stable and controlled high-speed performance that defies the length and weight of this monster. It looks big at the curb and handles small behind the wheel.You can’t discuss the A8 L W12 without delving into the back seat, since the car is eminently “chauffeur-able,” and the price tag brings it up towards those “gentlemen’s saloons” often associated with hired drivers. Leg room, leather quality, ride comfort, entertainment technology (dual ten-inch screens with a rear-seat DVD slot)…any critical factor of being a passenger in this car compares favorably with a more expensive competitive set. Speaking of the price, Audi lists $133,500 as the base, but the maker’s Exclusive program offers a selection of 15 leathers, seven woods and other options that can bring the final cost of a personalized A8 L W12 closer to $180,000.www.audiusa.comQuick TakesMercedes-Benz M-Class 4MATIC Thoroughly restyled and reengineered, the new third-gen M-Class SUVs are larger, more powerful and more fuel efficient than their predecessors. A new 3.5-liter direct-injection V6 engine is 13 percent more powerful, providing 302hp and 273 foot pounds of torque, but is also less thirsty. Meanwhile, the new 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine in the ML350 BlueTEC 4MATIC provides 240hp and a tremendous 455 foot pounds of torque.

Black, white, Republican, Democrat, gay, straight — step up, vote, do the right thing to make sure that this kind of voice and rhetoric is extinguished,” Perry said.Perry was reeling from violent events over the last few days, including 11 people killed after a gunman opened fire in a Pittsburgh synagogue and a Florida man arrested for allegedly mailing pipe bombs former president Barrack Obama, CNN, Bill and Hillary Clinton’s home and actor Robert De Niro.“Nobody’s Fool” star Tiffany Haddish hopes that in some way the film can provide an escape from the violence and threats over the last couple of days.“Well, it has been a lot of tragedy, and a lot of bad things going on this past week. And I think the best medicine for that is to laugh, to find some way to escape a little bit,” Haddish said.Haddish stars in the comedy as a woman recently released from prison who reunites with her sister. But she soon discovers that her sister, played by Tika Sumpter, is in an online relationship with a man she thinks may be manipulating her. “Nobody’s Fool” is out Nov. 2.Omari Hardwicke, who also co-stars in the film, thinks it’s the entire world that has become harsher, and sees some non-political issues as contributors.“I feel the country is colder, way more callous. People don’t care as much. There is a spiritual nature that is gone in households, and kids are growing up way too fast,” Hardwicke said.Mehcad Brooks, who plays one of the men in Sumpter’s character’s life, said he’s especially bothered by President Donald Trump’s continued attacks on the press.“My mother is a journalist. I take it very personally,” he said, referring to Austin American-Statesman editorial writer, Alberta Phillips.At a rally in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Sunday, the president continued his attacks on the media, saying they are taking the “sinister actions of one individual to score political points.” The crowd broke into frequent chants of “CNN sucks!”Brooks says as long as progressive thinkers are split over minor issues, those people who attack democracy will continue to thrive.“I think when more open-minded people fragment themselves, and fragment the movements, it’s easier for that side to win,” he said. “It’s easier for the exclusive mind that doesn’t want to allow inclusion and diversity — it’s easier for them to win.”___Follow John Carucci at http://www.twitter.com/jacarucci Tiffany Haddish and Tyler Perry attend the world premiere of “Nobody’s Fool” at AMC Loews Lincoln Square on Sunday, Oct. 28, 2018, in New York.
