Milestone as giant turbine placed on seabed to harness powerful Fundy tides

PARRSBORO, N.S. – A giant tidal turbine has been lowered into position on the Bay of Fundy seabed near Parrsboro, N.S., a “huge milestone” for a test project aiming to demonstrate the industry’s potential.A spokesman for Cape Sharp Tidal says the 1,000-tonne turbine was put into place on Monday morning during an ebb tide that lasted about four hours.“I believe it’s a huge milestone in the tidal industry,” said Jeremy Poste, the manager of Cape Sharp Tidal, a joint venture between Emera Inc. and OpenHydro, a DCNS company.“At the completion of the project we will be able to demonstrate the technical and financial viability of tidal.”The company had planned to install the five-storey-high turbine over the weekend, but had to delay installation while preparation work was being done on the tail portion of the unit.Poste said that in the next few days the turbine will be connected to the power grid through a subsea cable and is expected to begin generating electricity in the next few weeks that will eventually be enough to supply 1,000 residences.The partnership says it eventually plans to install a pair of two megawatt, in-stream tidal turbines at the testing site, in what would become North America’s first tidal array connected to an electrical grid. The Cape Sharp project is one of several that plan to test different turbine technologies in the Bay of Fundy, which has some of the world’s most powerful tides.However, a spokesman for the 175-member Bay of Fundy Inshore Fishermen’s Association said his group is upset it was deployed in the middle of lobster season, arguing it was timed deliberately for when opponents had to be at sea.Colin Sproul also said in an interview that placing the turbine in the water prevents the proper collection of data on the normal flow of marine life in the area.He said he is worried that the vessels operating in the area may damage lobster gear and displace fishermen from their usual fishing areas nearby.“We’re scared that we will lose a lot of buoy lines and when the buoys are lost the traps continue to ghost fish and then … there’s the risk of damaged gear being set adrift and becoming entangled with whales,” he said.Late last month, a Nova Scotia Supreme Court judge denied an injunction sought by Sproul’s group to stop the deployment. In February, the court will hear an appeal of the government-issued deployment permit.Sarah Dawson, a spokeswoman for Cape Sharp Tidal, said the company has identified for some time that it “had opportunities to deploy every two weeks based on the tidal conditions.”“We had all the regulatory requirements and permits in place to deploy, and our marine operators always follow best practice for marine safety,” she wrote in an email.“It’s important to remember that this is a demonstration scale project to demonstrate it can be done safely, economically, and without environmental harm.”— By Michael Tutton in Halifax.Follow @mtuttoncporg on Twitter.

The Astros Are Making A Historic Turnaround

The Houston Astros came out of nowhere. Just two seasons after occupying the basement of the American League West, the Astros have returned to take the top spot. Their turnaround is so sizable and so swift that it’s historic.In 2014, the Astros finished fourth in the division, with a correspondingly putrid winning percentage of .432. This year, the Astros are projected1Using FanGraphs’ projected standings. I am using the projected standings to take into account that the Astros’ performance is likely to regress somewhat. to end with a .530 winning percentage, sixth-best in the majors. Turnarounds like that don’t happen often, but they do happen: Since 1950, only 114 teams (7.2 percent of the total number) have managed to increase their winning percentage by .100 or more over the course of a single season.2I am using data from Sean Lahman’s database. The 2013 World Series-winning Boston Red Sox managed it, as did the 2014 Los Angeles Angels.3Notably, both of these teams had been quite good two years before, implying that their improved winning percentages were returns to their expected level of play. That statement holds generally: The teams that improved their winning percentage by .100 or more had a .478 winning percentage two years prior, much better than the Astros’ woeful mark (.315). We’d expect to see a couple of teams every year bump their winning percentage by a similar margin.The Astros’ turnaround becomes historic, however, when you look at how bad they were two years ago. In 2013, the Astros finished 51-111, good for a .315 winning percentage and the bottom of the division. The team was not felled by injuries or misfortune — it was genuinely terrible in every phase of the game. The Astros’ hitters racked up 1.4 wins above replacement (WAR) — 29th in the league — and their pitchers totaled 1.2 — 30th in the league. That’s what happens when your team is essentially replacement level. A team full of anonymous, AAA types who couldn’t make it in the major leagues would have been projected to finish at a winning percentage of .294, barely worse than the Astros’ actual performance.If the projection for this season holds, the Astros will have increased their winning percentage by .200 over two years. Since 1950, that kind of reversal has happened a grand total of seven times — and when it has, it’s usually because a decent team has gotten radically better. The 2001 Seattle Mariners assembled a historic juggernaut of a team that won 71.6 percent of its games after winning 48.8 percent two years earlier. The team before the Mariners to accomplish this feat, the 1995 Cleveland Indians, became a 100-win team from a borderline contender. Only one team — the 1963 Philadelphia Phillies — had a starting winning percentage as poor as the Astros did at the end of their 2013 season.It’s still early in the season, and the Astros likely won’t finish as well as they have started. That doesn’t mean, though, that the Astros’ current winning percentage (.625) is founded purely on luck. They have one of the best run differentials in the league, scoring 28 more runs than they’ve allowed.4According to Russell Carleton’s work at Baseball Prospectus, run differential doesn’t stabilize until 70 games have been played. But such a strong differential does portend positive things for the Astros, even if the sample size is not yet large enough to be certain. The Astros aren’t getting terribly lucky in terms of their batting average on balls in play (BABIP), either offensively (.278, good for 24th in the league) or defensively (.283, also 24th). They have been a little bit lucky in terms of clustering their hits, but even if we remove that, they’d have earned a .576 winning percentage so far, good for fourth in the league.Most teams that accomplished turnarounds like the Astros’ did so on the basis of vastly improved play — both on offense and defense. On average, teams that saw their winning percentage improve by .100 year to year were helped by their offenses putting up .46 more runs per game and their defense allowing .54 fewer runs per game. The Astros are doing just as well. Their runs per game have improved by .55 relative to last year, and their runs allowed per game have declined by .61. In other words, this kind of improvement is no fluke.The Astros have built their team on a combination of savvy trades (outfielder Jake Marisnick), high draft picks (right fielder George Springer) and an eye for talent disregarded by other teams (second baseman Jose Altuve and starting pitcher Collin McHugh). Guys like McHugh offer an insight into the front office’s analytics-heavy approach. McHugh was acquired not because of his results but because the spin on his curveball suggested that he could become a success.As with any turnaround, however, luck does play a role. Indeed, projection systems are relatively unchanged in their opinion of the Astros despite their success. FanGraphs’ Steamer projection pegs them as a roughly .500 team going forward, and Baseball Prospectus’s PECOTA is even less optimistic.But all those wins in the bank mean that even if they regress, the Astros stand a good chance at making the playoffs for the first time since 2005. Both projections tab them as better-than-even to get into the postseason, and their unexpectedly exceptional play may convince the front office to make further improvements to the roster.One of the most optimistic parallels for the Astros’ recent success comes from the last team to increase its winning percentage by .200 in two years: the 2008 Tampa Bay Rays. Like the Astros, those Rays were coming from the basement, riding a wave of young talent gathered by a recently installed, sabermetrically advanced front office. For the Rays, 2008’s turnaround was the beginning of an impressive run that saw them make the playoffs in four of six years (getting all the way to the World Series in 2008).If those Rays are any guide, we may be witnessing the rise of a new contender — one that will be competitive in the AL West for several years. This may be the last year the Astros sneak up on people. read more

Ohio State womens volleyball set to welcome Big Ten newcomers Maryland Rutgers

OSU sophomore middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe watches the ball during a match against Penn State on Oct. 31 at St. John Arena. OSU lost, 3-0.Credit: Kelly Roderick / For The LanternAfter playing the majority of its games on the road this season, the No. 18 Ohio State women’s volleyball team looks to defend St. John Arena against Big Ten newcomers Maryland and Rutgers.Of the 24 matches played by OSU this season, only eight outings, including three tournament matchups, have been played in Columbus this year.Sophomore middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe said she’s glad the team doesn’t have to travel as much, and added that the Buckeyes need to approach every game with the same mindset.“It’ll be a lot nicer being able to stay home, not traveling as much (and) obviously having a home court advantage too,” Sandbothe said. “But I mean, we’re road warriors, as well as being home warriors.”The Buckeyes (16-8, 7-5) are scheduled to play the Terrapins (9-14, 2-10) on Friday and the Scarlet Knights (7-18, 0-12) on Saturday.The majority of Buckeye juniors and seniors, with the exception of junior middle blocker Tyler Richardson, as she is a transfer from Middle Tennessee State, have experience playing the Terrapins. The Buckeyes played Maryland in invitational play during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons. The Scarlet Knights and the Buckeyes haven’t played one another since the 1981 season.Junior transfer outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell has the most experience playing the Terrapins, as she faced them two times as a player at Duke.“Maryland’s a very scrappy team and they fight very hard,” Campbell said. “They have really good pin hitters.”She added that if the Buckeyes “scrap and play defensive as hard as (Maryland does),” they can come out with a win.In her career against the Terrapins, she has averaged 12 kills, 7 digs, an assist and a service ace per game.The Terrapins and Scarlet Knights come into Columbus at the bottom of the Big Ten, but have made strides compared to last season.The Scarlet Knights are also the only Big Ten team without a win in conference play this season.The Terrapins will be led by senior outside hitter Ashleigh Crutcher, who ranks seventh in the Big Ten in kills per set with an average of 3.55, while the Scarlet Knights will be led by junior defensive specialist Ali Schroeter, who ranks fifth in the Big Ten in digs per set with an average of 4.39.Both matches are scheduled for a 7 p.m. start. read more

Apple Exec Tips Cheap iPhone Maybe

first_imgIf the rumor mill has taught us anything this week, it’s that we should really be looking past today’s event to whatever Apple has planned next. According to at least one employee, today’s iPad announcement is going to be a bit of a snoozer. But while an iPad 3 announcement is likely still a ways off, we’ll no doubt being seeing some kind of of iPhone announcement at around the halfway mark this year.In an recent meeting with Bernstein Research, Apple’s COO (and stand-in CEO) Tim Cook let slip a little bit of information that many are jumping on as evidence of that cheap iPhone/iPhone nano we’ve been hearing so much about in the past month.Toni Sacconaghi, the Bernstein analyst who met with Cook, reported that the exec “appeared to reaffirm the notion that Apple is likely to develop lower priced offerings,” in an attempt to shoot down the notion that Apple products are “just for the rich.”This, of course, is far from a concession–Apple’s executives are generally pretty good about keeping things under wraps (particularly due to the fact that, until fairly recently, only one of them really did any speaking on behalf of the company). It’s something to think about, at least, as you spend the day refreshing the Apple Store page.last_img read more

Guerin Fennelly OHiggins and ONeill A quick guide to garda whistleblowing

first_imgGuerin, Fennelly, O’Higgins and O’Neill: A quick guide to garda whistleblowing Sometimes they can be difficult to digest. A garda graduation ceremony in Templemore Source: Niall Carson/PA ImagesIN THE LAST three years there’s been report after report and inquiry after inquiry about matters relating to An Garda Síochána.Frequently shocking, often confusing but always worthwhile, the avalanche of information can nonetheless be difficult to digest.These reports and inquiries are known by the name of the judge who chaired them, but with another one published today, we’ve put together guide to which is which.February 2014Penalty points report(s)Three years ago this month the report by the Garda Inspectorate’s into the penalty points system was published.Its proper title was: The Fixed Charge Processing System: A 21st Century Strategy. You can access it in full here.The report found “consistent and widespread breaches“ by those charged with administering penalty points and made 37 recommendations for changes and improvements to the system.The inspection had been requested by then Justice Minister Alan Shatter following allegations of corruption and favouritism in the penalty points system.Whistleblower Maurice McCabe was among those to have made the allegations of wrongdoing.The publication of the report did little to ease the pressure on Shatter and there were more and more calls for him to resign.One person who did resign soon after was Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan.Callinan retired from the force weeks after the report having previously branded the ongoing garda whistleblower disclosures as “quite disgusting. Source: Bock The Robber/YouTubeThere were also other reports directly into the penalty points controversy including those by the Garda Síochána Ombudnsman Commission (GSOC) and the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).February 2014 The Guerin Report Justice Minster Alan Shatter (centre) pictured at the funeral of a colleague in 2014.

Callinan’s departure was announced on the same day the government revealed the garda recordings.The before he stepped down, the Taoiseach had sent Department of Justice secretary general Brian Purcell to Callinan’s home to stress the seriousness of the situation.The commission has also already revealed that Callinan had eight to ten bags of his personal papers shredded after announcing his retirement.April 2016The O’Higgins report Garda Commissioner Noirin O’Sullivan arrives at Leinster House in Dublin.

Une étude dénonce les ingrédients utilisés pour adoucir le goût du tabac

first_imgUne étude dénonce les ingrédients utilisés pour adoucir le goût du tabacUn test mené par le magazine 60 Millions de Consommateurs en partenariat avec le Comité national contre le tabagisme (CNT) alerte sur les ingrédients, tels que le sucre ou la vanille, ajoutés au tabac pour en adoucir le goût. Les taux seraient parfois bien supérieurs à ceux autorisés. A l’heure où les autorités de nombreux pays multiplient les actions pour tenter de limiter le tabagisme, c’est une enquête importante que vient tout juste de réaliser le magazine 60 Millions de Consommateurs. Aidé du Comité national contre le tabagisme, celui-ci s’est penché sur les ingrédients utilisés par les fabricants et ajoutés dans le tabac pour en adoucir le goût dans près de 19 produits. Des paquets de cigarettes, tabacs, papier à rouler et autres qui ciblent plus particulièrement les jeunes et les femmes. “Ces produits masquent le caractère âcre, un peu repoussant, de la fumée du tabac et facilitent chez les jeunes le passage du goût sucré du bonbon à la cigarette”, a ainsi expliqué à l’AFP le Pr Yves Martinet, président du CNCT. Or, déjà pointés du doigt au cours des dernières années, les ingrédients en question ont fait l’objet d’un décret datant du 30 décembre 2009 qui interdit l’utilisation d’édulcorants, et limite la teneur en arômes de vanille et éthylvanilline. Une réglementation qu’ont semblé respecter les 7 cigarettes analysées, d’après 60 Millions de Consommateurs qui souligne que seules deux (Black Devil Black Flavour et Black Devil Grey Flavour) contiennent au moins un des deux arômes de vanille, “mais en deçà du seuil réglementaire de 0,05%”.Toutefois, “les arômes autres que la vanille ne sont pas soumis à la réglementation”, précise le magazine, ce qui permet aux fabricants de “vanter les arômes de confiserie de leurs produits”. Autre exemple : celui du menthol qui fournit “une impression trompeuse de fraîcheur”, ajoute le Pr Martinet.Des taux largement supérieurs dans les tabacs à rouler À lire aussiPourquoi prend-on du poids quand on arrête de fumer ?Mais en réalité, il s’avère que tous les produits du tabac ne sont pas concernés par la réglementation, ce qui inclut notamment le tabac et le papier à rouler. Ainsi, le test a mis en évidence pour certains cigarillos analysés (Clubmaster Slim superior vanilla et Café crème italian macchiato) des taux de vanilline et d’éthylvanilline “jusqu’à 10 fois supérieurs à ce qui est autorisé pour les cigarettes”. De même, deux des trois tabacs à rouler examinés ont montré des concentrations d’arômes de vanille “loin d’être négligeables”.Ajouté à cela, les analystes ont également trouvé des taux de vanilline et d’éthylvanilline “respectivement deux et cinq fois supérieurs au seuil maximal autorisé pour les cigarettes” dans le tabac à pipe Alsbo vanilla pipe tobacco. Quant aux taux de sucre, ils flirtaient les 10% dans les tabacs à rouler et à pipe, 26% dans le tabac à narguilé Al Fakher chocolat et même 37% dans le Al-Sultan double pomme. Au vu de tels résultats, 60 Millions de Consommateurs et le CNCT ont ainsi souligné la nécessité “d’avoir une réglementation qui concerne l’ensemble des produits du tabac et pas seulement les cigarettes”. Ils demandent également l’interdiction de “l’utilisation de tout type d’arôme destiné à rendre les produits plus attractifs” et une “plus grande transparence dans l’étiquetage”. “Aujourd’hui, un consommateur est mieux informé sur la composition d’un yaourt que sur celle d’un produit aussi nocif que le tabac”, ont-ils de même constaté à l’issue de l’étude qui sera publiée dans le prochain magazine à sortir le 27 octobre.

The 2012 City and Regional Magazine Survey

first_imgAnd if anyone thinks the regional market is an easy one to launch or expand into, they should heed the lessons of Weiss Communications. The company unloaded its Indianapolis Woman title to a group of private investors in April in an asset deal that saw the dissolution of the entire staff. The magazine had a closed circulation model that at the time of the sale was 150,000.The company essentially ran out of money when it attempted to launch a sister title, St. Louis Woman, in 2006 which then went out of business in 2010. The drive to keep that title running ended up starving both brands. “The expansion was ill-timed and we did not fully understand the market,” said John Weiss, VP of operations/director of digital media with Indianapolis Woman. “This cost a great deal of money and created a distraction for our Indianapolis publication. We believe the St. Louis distraction affected our ability to transition Indianapolis Woman through a tough economy and changing advertising culture.”In the meantime, other publishers are looking to revive titles that have been starved of attention or could possibly fill a hole in their markets. In February, a group of investors acquired all rights and trademarks for the shuttered news weekly Beverly Hills 213 with plans to resurrect the title as a quarterly, glossy magazine by September.Print distribution was at about 60,000, delivered to hotel lobbies and homes in affluent cities in the area, including Beverly, Bel Air and Brentwood. The buyers expect the new distribution will expand to 70,000-75,000 and will continue to focus on the hotel room distribution strategy. Hotels that sign on will receive custom editions with their own ads featured on the back cover.Shannon Media Inc., publisher of Chapel Hill Magazine and Durham Magazine, launched a weekly newspaper, called The Weekly, which debuted in February, filling a gap in the Chapel Hill newspaper market. “We have mere shadows of what newspapers used to be. We can bring Chapel Hill a lively, local newspaper,” said publisher Dan Shannon. “A weekly that includes things not easily accessible on the Internet—like middle school and high school sports, births, deaths, marriages, divorces, land transfers, arrests, acquittals, bankruptcies and new business startups.”Shannon’s strategy for The Weekly is decidedly print-centric and reflects a trend the regional magazine category has been reluctant to shed.The Weekly will have a Web presence in addition to the core print product, on which community members can connect and news will run. “There will be news, but we don’t put our magazines online,” said Shannon. “If you want the newspaper, you have to pick up the print version. Every newspaper in the country has put their content up online, and it hasn’t helped one of them a damn bit.” The Survey RespondentsThe majority of the respondents to this year’s survey (39 percent) publish one title, 16 percent publish two. However, 24 percent publish four or more. Thirty-nine percent of respondents have paid circulation with newsstand sales while almost a quarter, or 24 percent, have controlled circulation that isn’t requested. Fifteen percent have requested controlled circulation. Most of the respondents described their geographic market focus as “county/multi-county” (40 percent). About a quarter of the respondents targeted a specific city and 16 percent focused on a state.The top three niche markets respondents target are luxury/lifestyle (21 percent), tourism/travel (11 percent) and daily news (8 percent). These generally mirror the results from the 2011 survey.Most of this year’s survey respondents are companies with revenues on the small side. Twenty-seven percent of respondents indicated that projected 2012 revenues for their largest magazine will be between $1 million and 2.9 million. Thirteen percent said their largest magazine’s revenue will be between $500,000 and $749,000. While consumer magazines across the industry wrestle with their mobile and digital strategies, the city and regional sector continues to focus on its print-centric strategies, largely maintaining modest digital operations. And once again, FOLIO:’s 2012 City and Regional Magazine Survey proves that out. Concurrently, and maybe even because of that focus on print, the market has been quiet over the last year with very few acquisitions. One notable deal included the purchase of Louisiana Cookin’ by Hoffman Media in April, which publishes Cooking with Paula Deen and Southern Lady. This deal alone, mostly because of the plans executive vice president and chief operating officer Eric Hoffman has for the title, is an important reminder of the power regional magazines have beyond their city borders. Immediate plans included a dramatic newsstand boost to 75,000 copies, ten times its current volume. Additionally, Hoffman wants to take the title national, a strategy that titles like Garden & Gun have found success with. “The category is defensible, the magazine has a fairly flat competitive set and it fits our skill set well. We have a strong foothold in southern food and cooking and while it seems like a regional play we can position it as a national authority on Louisiana cooking and culture,” Eric Hoffman said at the time of the deal. Recession Ripple Effectscenter_img Digital Still Not a High PriorityIn results that are almost identical to 2011’s survey, respondents still receive the vast majority of their revenues from print. This metric has been virtually the same for the last 3 years. For 2011, respondents say they derive 77 percent of revenues from print advertising for their largest publication. Thirteen percent of revenues are from paid subscriptions and merely four percent come from e-media.The e-media revenues for regional magazine publishers, according to the responses collected in this survey, are 4-5 times lower than their b-to-b and consumer publisher counterparts.The metrics are identical when respondents project their revenue for the current year, 2012. Print edges down slightly to 75 percent and e-media bumps up to five percent, but otherwise the mix barely moves. Other revenue categories that have had bigger impacts in other sectors of the magazine industry, such as data/market information and sales, hardly register with respondents to this survey—with less than one percent indicating they get revenue from that category. One publisher, Churm Media, formalized its 10-year-old custom publishing services by officially launching a dedicated custom content division. “What we’re doing is not necessarily new; what’s new is that we’re formalizing and creating more and more marketing services for our advertisers and new prospects. Media companies large and small (as we’re a regional media company) are going to survive by finding non-traditional advertising revenue,” says Churm Media CEO Steve Churm. Surprisingly, revenues from events are lower than emedia, coming in at only 3 percent. Events, both large and small, are a particularly fitting product strategy for regional publishers and many have found success with the model in their markets.A Wait-and-See Approach?The focus on print is not uncommon for regional publishers, who have, with a few exceptions, long bucked the digital trend. And as local economies are often more impacted by broader economic troubles, regional publishers may still be waiting out the impact of the recession years of 2008-2010. This could be reflected by the 69 percent of respondents that say they’re not going to launch any print products this year and the 53 percent who say they’re not going to launch any non-print products in 2012. Resources are clearly continuing to be applied to existing products. However, almost a third of respondents do plan on launching either print or non-print products this year, so there is still some expansion going in currently.last_img read more

first_imgAl OrtizHouston Mayor Sylvester Turner (center) says his objective is to reach an agreement with the City’s employees regarding how to deal with the pension issue by the end of the year.The unfunded liability of the City of Houston’s pension system reached $3.9 billion dollars in 2015, according to a new report from Rice University’s Kinder Institute for Urban Research.The report outlines four possible reforms to reign in further growth of the unfunded liability: Increasing the City’s contribution to the pension systems, requiring larger contributions by City workers and reducing benefits for current employees.The fourth option is switching to what is known as a defined contribution plan for new hires.The downside of that kind of plan is that the risk associated with insufficient funds at retirement falls on the employee, not on the employer.“The experience of other cities, such as Phoenix and San Diego, which are somewhat comparable cities to Houston, is that the City has to significantly increase the payment into the pension system probably for 10 to 20 years to solve the problem of the magnitude that Houston has,” explains Bill Fulton, director of the Kinder Institute.Mayor Sylvester Turner says he values the report and that, although it is a very complex topic, he has a clear road map to deal with the pension problem which entails “reducing the unfunded liability now going into the future, reducing the annual payments now going into the future, and reaching a resolution by the end of the year.”To achieve those goals, Turner says he is having “constructive” conversations with the stakeholders involved in the pension issue, which includes City workers, as well as Police officers and firefighters.“We’ll take it one step at a time,” Turner explained at the press conference he held after this week’s meeting of the City Council.

Pokémon Company CEO Says Pokémon on Switch Will Be Bigger More Expres

first_img Mint-Condition Set of Pokemon Cards Sold For $107KNew Trailer ‘Pokemon Sword and Shield’ Reveals Team Yell Punks Stay on target The core Pokémon series has been relegated to handhelds like the Gameboy, DS, and 3DS for nearly two decades. This is due to the Pokémon Company’s belief that a game about “pocket monsters” is only for handhelds. Because of that rigid stance, it was shocking to find out a mainline Pokémon game is in development for Switch. Though the Switch is a handheld, it’s also a console. The Pokémon devs can’t get away with reusing old assets the way they’ve been for so long. This is a wholly new creation, making it unlike any Pokémon that’s come before.Speaking with Bloomberg, Pokémon CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara shared details about what players can expect from Pokémon on Switch. Nintendo’s latest console is a considerably more powerful device than the Nintendo DS line. This gives the devs room to expand the world and to have characters with more expression.“With the Switch, we see it as a chance to create Pokémon that goes deeper and with a higher level of expression,” said Ishihara. “As a result, that makes it an extremely important platform. Right now we’re using 7 to 8-inch screens, but on a high-definition TV you can express a whole different world with graphics and sound. Until now, games were made as one for one person, but now you can go home and play with everyone — so how do we tackle these themes, and how do we make sure it’s not complicated?”AdChoices广告Seeing as how Pokémon is getting a complete overhaul on Switch, it gives the franchise an opportunity to reach a broader audience. I’ve personally never had any interest in these games, but I do want to see what this new entry is all about. Hopefully, Nintendo won’t make us wait too long before giving us an update on the Switch Pokémon game.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Abu Dhabis oldest building Qasr Al Hosn to reopen this year

first_imgThe Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism is readying to welcome tourists to the redeveloped Qasr Al Hosn in Abu Dhabi by the year-end. The historic fort at the heart of the capital is undergoing a substantial renovation. Cafes and restaurants will also feature in the finished attraction, while it will host exhibitions and concerts, along with the return of the annual Qasr Al Hosn Festival.It forms part of the emirate plans to make a sustained push to attract more tourists. According to official figures, Abu Dhabi welcomed about five million hotel guests last year – up 10% on 2016 and Indian arrivals contributed majorly to it. This year’s goal is 5.5 million.“Each emirate is trying to develop a unique tourist identity: Ras Al Khaimah has adventure tourism and Abu Dhabi has its culture. What we are trying to do is create a different unique selling point in each emirate so we can complement rather than compete,” said Sultan Al Dhaheri, Executive Director, Tourism Development and Investment Company.last_img read more

Ocwen Moves to Expedite CFPB Ruling

first_img CFPB DOJ Ocwen PHH 2017-04-26 Seth Welborn Share Ocwen Moves to Expedite CFPB Ruling Ocwen Financial Corporation is hoping to expedite a court ruling on the constitutionality of Consumer Financial Protection Bureau with two motions, filed Wednesday morning. The organization also filed a third motion inviting the Department of Justice to participate in the case.On April 20, the CFPB filed suit against Ocwen, alleging the lender “engaged in significant and systemic misconduct at nearly every stage of the mortgage servicing process.” The motions filed today are a direct response to the Bureau’s allegations.“Ocwen believes that the CFPB is unconstitutionally structured, because it vests too much unfettered power in the hands of the CFPB’s Director and the Bureau itself, without any meaningful oversight by the President or Congress,” a release from Ocwen stated.A three-judge panel from the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals deemed the CFPB’s structure unconstitutional back in October of 2016, in the case of PHH Corp. v CFPB, vacating a $100 million fine against PHH and ultimately giving the president power to fire the CFPB director at will.Seventeen state attorneys, as well as several lawmakers, made a bid to defend the CFPB, though the court rejected those bids in March. The full D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals will rehear the case, affording the CFPB the chance to defend itself. In response, the U.S. Department of Justice filed a brief in March asserting its agreement with the Circuit Court, saying “a removal restriction for the Director of the CFPB is an unwarranted limitation on the President’s executive power.”In response to the CFPB’s recent suit against the organization, Ocwen called the Bureau “an unaccountable agency” and cited a number of apparent errors in its filing.“The Complaint is riddled with allegations about conduct that Ocwen already addressed—sometimes years ago—with refunds, credits, or other consumer remedies,” Ocwen responded. “Moreover, the CFPB contends that on ‘numerous’ occasions or ‘at least one thousand’ times Ocwen has wrongfully started or completed foreclosures on consumers who were in the midst of applying for or performing a loan modification. But, so far as Ocwen, is aware—and the Complaint does not identify the loans—the CFPB did not actually look at the individual servicing files for these consumers’ loans before making this allegation.”center_img April 26, 2017 710 Views in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, Newslast_img read more
