At UN Assembly Bosnia and Herzegovina appeals for scaleup in foreign investment

“We are too small of a country and region to achieve it alone. We do not have either enough capital to build industrial facilities to respect the principles of ‘green economy’, or sufficient capital in order to protect natural resources and put it in the position of sustainable development,” Nebojša Radmanovic told the 69th high-level debate.One of the main challenges to development in Bosnia and Herzegovina is the declining foreign investment which was 34 per cent lower in 2013 than 2012. He said that the country cannot achieve by itself the sustainable development which involves investments in the real sector of the economy, building transportation infrastructure and development, poverty reduction, effective and rational use of resources.Mr. Radmanovic is one of 196 speakers addressing the General Assembly over the course of the high-level debate which lasts one week. The theme of this year’s debate centres on the post-2015 sustainable development agenda that will follow the deadline for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). read more

Will Hollywood studios rare buyout scupper lowbudget rival film about a British

first_imgThe Mercy While The Mercy could afford Firth and Weisz, both Oscar winning actors, to play the sailor and his wife, Clare, Crowhurst called on the comparatively unknown Justin Salinger and Amy Loughton. The MercyCredit:Dean Rogers In November he wrote: “Looking forward to seeing Studiocanal  capitalise on another fantastic review for Crowhurst.”Danny Perkins, chief executive of the UK arm of Studiocanal, insists that both films can be a success.“It’s not about scuppering the film Crowhurst,” he said. “The Mercy has been five years in the making. When we knew another film was around we thought that if we took the rights we could control the way they were released to work for both, rather than work in conflict.”He added that although Studiocanal has not yet registered a release date for Rumley’s film, it should be screened four to six weeks after The Mercy is released in February. Now, cast and crew from Crowhurst have taken the unusual step of insisting their depiction of the sailor’s tragic life is more realistic and gritty because it has not had millions of pounds pumped into it.Amy Loughton, who plays Mrs Crowhurst, the character also played by Rachel Weisz in the rival film fears their film could be left to sink without trace.“I don’t mind being a poor man’s Rachel Weisz,” she said. “Our film will be much more raw and real. When you don’t have millions of pounds the hope is that you internalise and portray the turmoil of the characters much more. In a low budget film the script, cinematography and costumes have to be very carefully considered. “It’s been tricky. We are worried that they are not doing any publicity for the film. We are literally at the mercy of The Mercy.”Andy Briggs, the scriptwriter, believes the British public always favours the underdog in a David and Goliath battle.“We are, like Donald Crowhurst, the underdog,” he said. “But in this instance it has worked in our favour. It was refreshing to make a low budget film because we had to cut needless scenes which helped make a more direct and raw story.“I wonder how a big budget movie can portray the madness of Crowhurst, his life imploding around him as he realised he was about to be found out for lying about his position in the race. We have a more primeval telling of his story.” Donald Crowhurst the film Deep Water DEEP WATER Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Whereas Colin Firth shot some of the scenes aboard a trimaran in the Mediterranean Sea near Malta, Rumley had to make do with the Bristol Channel.And with both films due to be released this year to mark the 50th anniversary of the start of race, Studiocanal decided it had to act.Last summer, the company took the unusual step of buying the rights for Rumley’s film to release it after The Mercy hits the cinemas in February. Milton Kam, the director of photography, said that while a big budget production film crew has all the latest gear at their disposal, he used a single camera and for scenes set inside the boats cabin a single light bulb created a haunting effect.“It worked visually. It was wonderful what it does to the face and was what we were after,” he said. “Our film is psychological and more immediate. We didn’t want to make a romantic story – it’s about a person going through extremes. I imagine that The Mercy is much more Hollywood.” Still from the independent film Crowhurst With a star-studded cast including Colin Firth and Rachel Weisz, film bosses were in no doubt that the £20 million biopic The Mercy has the makings of a blockbuster movie.Telling the real life tragic story of Donald Crowhurst, a British underdog competing and then cheating in an around-the-world yacht race, certainly has all the ingredients of a box office hit.But in an example of life imitating art, Studiocanal, the French company bankrolling the production, had to deal first with an underdog of a very different kind.The movie company executives discovered Simon Rumley, an independent British filmmaker, was also making a film about the ill-fated weekend sailor.It meant his film Crowhurst, with a budget of just £500,000, was a direct and inconvenient rival to the big budget movie backed by Studiocanal and the BBC.Both recount how the broke British businessman signed up for the 1968 Golden Globe Race in the hope of winning the prize money before forging his navigation charts to appear in the lead and then probably throwing himself overboard as he realised he would be found out.

Bill In Honor Of Sean Collier Would Grant Federal Death Benefits To

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — A bill named in honor of Wilmington fallen hero Sean Collier is making its way through the U.S. House of Representatives.If passed, the Officer Sean Collier Campus Police Recognition Act would allow the families of police officers — employed at PRIVATE colleges and universities — that are killed in the line of duty to receive death benefits from the federal government.Currently, only the families of sworn law enforcement officers at PUBLIC colleges and universities are eligible for these benefits.“Officer Sean Collier was shot and killed while on duty on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in April 2013 by the Boston Marathon Bombers,” reads a statement from the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators. “Because MIT is a private, non-profit institution of higher education, his family is not eligible for [Public Safety Officer Benefits] assistance. Had Officer Collier been employed by a public college or university, his family would have been eligible for assistance. In fact, had an officer with the city police department been killed alongside Officer Collier, the city officer’s family would have received [Public Safety Officer Benefits] assistance.”According to the Association, since 1923, 46 university police officers have been killed in the line of duty — 34 at public institutions eligible to receive the death benefit and 12 private institutions not eligible to receive the death benefit.“Congress passed the Public Safety Officers Benefit Act to provide peace of mind to aspiring police officers by assuring them that their families would be cared for in the event they gave their life in service to others,” according to the statement. “As a matter of basic fairness, this peace of mind should be given to all sworn law enforcement officers regardless of which agency employs them.”The Officer Sean Collier Campus Police Recognition Act of 2019 (H.R. 816) has bipartisan support in the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill, sponsored by Peter King (R-New York), already has 15 co-sponsors, including Massachusetts representatives Seth Moulton, Richard Neal, Stephen Lynch, Bill Keating, Joe Kennedy, Katherine Clark, James McGovern, and Lori Trahan.The bill was introduced in the House on January 28, 2019. It was immediately referred to the Judiciary Committee. On March 25, 2019, the bill was referred to Judiciary’s Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook. Follow Wilmington Apple on Twitter.

Game of Thrones season 8 episode 6 Jon Snows Azor Ahai to

first_imgGame of Thrones season 8 episode 1 reviewGame of Thrones (@gameofthrones/Instagram)Game of Thrones season 8 episode 5 “The Bells” aired on Sunday night and it featured how Jon Snow tried to be the man Daenerys Targaryen wanted him to be. The last and final episode will air in just a couple of days. Before we dive into the world with no more episodes of Game of Thrones, we are hoping to see some high-octane end to this series.Spoilers for recently released Game of Thrones episode:From the very beginning of the show, we all had high hopes from a character like Jon Snow / Aegon Targaryen (Kit Harington). The character was shown an underdog but excelled in everything which came in his way. He was the first one to befriend the Wildings and even mate with a Wilding girl.After his brutal murder, we thought that we won’t be able to see more of him but the character was resurrected by the Red Priestess Melisandre and from there on, we believed that Jon is the Prince That Was Promised aka Azor Ahai. Game of Thrones season 8 episode 3 leakGame of Thrones (@gameofthrones/Instagram)After the Battle of Bastards, Jon Snow proved that he is man enough to kill a person like Ramsay Bolton and get back the place which belongs to his people. After killing hundreds and thousands of White Walkers, Jon proved again that he is here for a long time and his resurrection meant something more than we could see at that time.However, everything about the character changed with Game of Thrones season 8. In this ongoing season, we saw Jon Snow struggling with his real identity, and how is afraid to lose Daenerys Targaryen — his aunt as well as his intimate partner.In episode 5 “The Bells,” we saw how Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) refused to hear Tyrion Lannister’s (Peter Dinklage) plea. The Mad Queen rode the dragon and burned down the entire city including the people. In the parallel sequence, we saw Jon Snow finally realizing that Daenerys is not the right person for the realm and she must die.To kill Daenerys Targaryen is not going to be an easy task. As she has finally become the queen and if Jon will murder the queen, he will become the Queenslayer. He will instantly be considered a traitor and there are chances that Unsullied or Dothraki army will execute him then and there.But this is not what fans are concerned at this moment. The character had a brilliant arc. We first realized that he will kill the Night King, which did not happen. Now if he will kill Daenerys Targaryen, it may feel that we lost the opportunity to witness Azor Ahai. At a given condition, even Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) can kill Daenerys and if she can kill the last surviving enemy then what was the reason behind resurrecting Jon Snow in the first place?If Jon Snow stayed dead, then too the Night King would have come and even then Daenerys would have to come to the North to kill him his armies. Even Night King was killed by Arya and Jon’s resurrection holds no meaning whatsoever.In the upcoming final episode of Game of Thrones, we are hoping to finally get the answers to these questions. Game of Thrones season 8 episode 6 is going to air on Monday morning at 6:30 on Hotstar in India.last_img read more

Metros New Chairman Talks About The New Bus Network And Services For

first_img 00:00 /03:40 X Gail DelaughterHouston attorney Carrin Patman was recently appointed by Mayor Sylvester Turner as Metro Chairman.News 88.7 Transportation Reporter Gail Delaughter recently sat down with Carrin Patman to talk about some of the issues facing Metro. And what better place to do it than the Red Line train headed northbound. We begin the conversation with a look at Metro’s new bus routes.Gail DelaughterHouston’s buses are already promoting Super Bowl 2017.Delaughter: One of your goals is to develop the new bus network. What do you think needs to be done, now that the new network is in place, to get people to warm up to the bus system and to use the weekday buses in particular?Patman: Well, obviously any innovation has unintended consequences. And one of the things we’re working on now is tweaking the new bus system to make sure that some folks who feel left behind, or who — some feel left behind and just aren’t familiar with alternatives they may have in the new bus network. So getting the word out and communication out is a key part. Second though, some people may have been left behind. There are some routes that were eliminated that we probably need to do something about, in terms of re-embracing those people into a bus network. So we’re now at that stage of the iterative process, as some people would call it, of looking at where unintended consequences arose, where gaps exist, and how to plug those gaps.Delaughter: For those who may not have any other transportation options, how important is the bus service or rail service to them?Patman: The bus service is critical. And those are the people for whom it’s most important that Metro provide quality service. That’s the reason for existence for transit, or one of the big ones. Delaughter: The disabled constitute a large portion of Metro’s ridership, either people who use the lift buses or people who use the fixed-route buses. Visually-impaired, people who use mobility devices, what are things that you would like to do to improve the customer service experience for disabled riders?Patman: Interestingly enough, METROLift operations are the most challenging aspect for transit agencies across the country. And there is nothing more important, again, than serving that population. Because disabled folks are very dependent on transit. One of the problems is, that when you have a METROLift driver and the first customer doesn’t show or is late, it delays everybody else along the line. And so we’ve made some improvements to try to mitigate that. We did have to increase fares, the prior board did. I’m told that actually we hadn’t had a fare increase in many years. And to continue to provide the service we provide, we did need an increase. But that’s something actually I’m going to take a second look at, and just make sure that that’s really warranted.Delaughter: So one of the big events coming up for Metro is Super Bowl. How much of an effort will this be to get ready for Super Bowl?Patman: My understanding is that the Super Bowl committee is planning events, or selecting locations, based on where the bus stops are and the rail stops are, to make it really convenient for people. I don’t know if every event will be like that but many of them will be. I feel very confident we’ll do a good job. We are fully focused on it.   To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen Sharelast_img read more

New Tab Override WebExtension released

first_imgNew Tab Override WebExtension released by Martin Brinkmann on August 23, 2017 in Firefox – 19 commentsNew Tab Override is a popular add-on for the Firefox web browser that you may install to customize the new tab page of the web browser.Mozilla removed the option to pick any page as the new tab page in Firefox 41, and users of the browser had to rely on extensions to regain the functionality.New Tab Override was the first extension for Firefox to introduce the removed core functionality again, and it has been updated several times since then.Sören Hentzschel, who is the developer of New Tab Override, released a WebExtension version of the browser add-on recently. The new version guarantees compatibility with Firefox 57 and beyond, as Mozilla plans to drop support for legacy add-ons when Firefox 57 gets released in November 2017.WebExtension APIs are still in development, and the whole architecture is being developed as new versions of Firefox get released and legacy support dropped.The consequence for New Tab Override is that the WebExtension version does not support all features of the legacy add-on version yet. Sören promised to integrate the missing features if the APIs become available.New Tab Override 8.0New Tab Override adds options to Firefox to customize the content of the new tab page of the browser.  Version 8.0 of the extension displays the following options to you on its configuration page:Use default page of FirefoxLoad about:blank (blank page)Load about:home (homepage)Load custom URL that uses HTTP or HTTPS protocol.Local file (see below).Background color (similar to about:blank, but with a different color).Mozilla News (German)Web Extension access to local files is restricted in Firefox. Sören implemented an option to load a HTML file into the New Tab Override storage to display it when the new tab page is opened.This is a workaround, and it is necessary that any files that get loaded in the HTML file are accessible on the Internet.An option to focus the web page that gets loaded on the new tab page and not the address bar is provided as well. This is mostly useful if you want a form field to be focused right away when the new tab page opens, for instance when you display the web page of a search engine on the page.Sören added link validation in the WebExtension version of New Tab Override. The validation checks the entered URL to provide feedback to the user right away.The New Tab Override’s project was moved to GitHub where its source is publicly accessible. Users may leave feedback there, for instance when they encounter bugs or have suggestions for new functionality.Closing WordsNew Tab Override development continues, and that is a good thing for users of the Firefox web browser. The new version is future proof and provides the essentials to change the new tab page of the Firefox web browser to a custom one.Summary12345 Author Rating2 based on 6 votes Software Name New Tab OverrideSoftware Category BrowserLanding Page Advertisementlast_img read more

No drug cartels in Cancun or state says minister

first_imgCancun, Q.R. — Cancun is not a red light city when it comes to security, nor does it operate drug cartels said the Ministry of the Interior.Alfonso Navarrete Prida, head of the Ministry of the Interior, says that although there has been an increase in the number of homicides in the country, including Quintana Roo, neither the state nor the city of Cancun is a red light concern in public matters of security.“Quintana Roo is not a red light concern in terms of security. Yes, there was an incident that had to do with a company and the managers of the company that provided a service and the PGR is finishing investigating it, but fortunately it did not result in fatalities and was an incident that cannot be circumscribed as related to a drug cartel in Quintana Roo.”He says that Cancun does not operate drug cartels, but cells, and that the homicides are used by criminals as a form of intimidation toward authorities.He added “There is no such thing as drug cartels, there are cells that have tried to penetrate an important place with great tourist and economic potential. We do not have the presence, as such, of a cartel that can manifest itself in the territory of Quintana Roo.Navarrete Prida acknowledged the increase of violence in the country where there are attempts by cells to establish themselves in some communities, which are probably related to a cartel, “but there is no settlement of a cartel, I want to make that clear.“These homicides that have been registered by cells of criminal groups are one of many forms of intimidation toward authority and they must be fought and presented to the Judge, which has been done.”He added, “If we measure bimonthly against bimonthly, we do not have a bimester with a large number of violent crimes, homicides.”He stressed that operation Titan Shield is yielding results, but will be improved with details released in coming days.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img September 2, 2008 – Novare Surgical Systems announced it successfully completed a series of single port lap-band procedures, performed exclusively through the patient�s belly button, which resulted in reduced scarring and less postoperative pain for patients. Dr. Julio Teixeira at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital has pioneered the innovative belly button lap-band procedure and he is believed to be the first surgeon to successfully do so. Dr. Teixeira uses Novare�s RealHand HD instruments to enable the procedure, and his approach eliminates an upper abdominal trocar placement that is often a site for significant patient discomfort.”This is a major step toward reducing pain and recovery time for bariatric patients,” said Dr. Teixeira. “By reducing the operative site to one single incision in the belly button we are also able to significantly improve cosmetic results for our patients. The dexterity and control afforded by the RealHand HD instruments now opens the door for single-port lap band procedures to be done safely and effectively through one single incision.” The Lap-Band Adjustable Gastric Banding System (manufactured by Allergan Inc.) is a silicone band that is surgically placed to reduce the amount of food a patient can hold in his or her stomach. Although this procedure is performed laparoscopically, it typically requires at least five abdominal incisions. Single Port laparoscopy is an advanced minimally invasive approach in which the surgeon operates exclusively through a single entry point, typically the patient’s belly button. All of the instruments necessary for the surgery are used through this single incision. After surgery, the scar is almost completely hidden inside the belly button. RealHand HD instruments are reportedly the first full range of motion hand-held laparoscopic instruments. RealHand technology is designed to mirror the surgeon’s hand direction with the added benefit of tactile feedback. As such, when the surgeon’s hand moves in one direction, the instrument tip exactly follows. Unlike standard laparoscopic instrumentation, RealHand is designed to offer complete seven degrees of freedom of movement in a hand-held instrument with no need for additional hardware.

(Photo by Vianney Le Caer/Invision/AP, File) center_img LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Johnny Depp has settled lawsuits with his former business managers that put a spotlight on the actor’s lavish lifestyle.Depp’s representatives said on Monday that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star had settled litigation filed against The Management Group, which he accused in January 2017 seeking more than $25 million over alleged financial abuse and negligence. No details of the settlement were released.Depp had accused the firm of filing his taxes late, costing him $7.5 million in penalties. The firm denied filing the returns late, and said Depp’s taxes were paid when the star had money available to pay them.The firm also countersued and argued that Depp was solely to blame for his money troubles, spending more than $2 million a month. That lawsuit said Depp paid more than $75 million to buy and maintain 14 homes, including a French chateau and a chain of islands in the Bahamas, as well as a 150-foot yacht, private jet travel and expensive art collection.The cases had sparked name-calling on both sides, with a spokesman for Depp’s former managers calling the actor a “habitual liar” in August 2017.Lawyers for The Management Group declined comment Monday.A statement released by a Depp spokesperson said that settling the case, which had been scheduled to begin trial next month, would allow him to focus on touring with his band, Hollywood Vampires, and promoting the latest film based on J.K. Rowling’s books, “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.”The film is scheduled to be released later in November.last_img read more
