first_imgA new lane will open Tuesday morning to northbound traffic pulling off Interstate 205 at the Northeast 134th Street exit in the Salmon Creek area.The wider offramp is meant to relieve rush-hour traffic congestion that often fills the exit and backs up onto the interstate. The exit widening is part of the $133 million Salmon Creek Interchange project, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.The entire Salmon Creek project was jointly launched by the state and Clark County Public Works in 2010 to improve traffic flow near the confluence of I-5 and I-205. The work includes widening I-5, improving local roads and building a new interchange at Northeast 139th Street.Transportation officials say drivers will next notice a wider interstate north of the 134th Street intersection. Crews from Battle Ground-based general contractor Rotschy Inc. expect to finish widening the section between Northeast 134th and Northeast 179th streets from four to six lanes this summer.Construction is also expected to start this summer on the final stage of the project — building a new interchange at 139th. The project is designed to provide a second east-west route across the interstates and alleviate gridlock on Northeast 134th Street.The Salmon Creek Interchange Project is scheduled for completion in 2014.last_img read more

first_imgSEATTLE — Doug Baldwin was caught. Not in the sense of getting tackled, but caught being an observer.Baldwin couldn’t help himself. When Seattle’s wide receiver saw that Green Bay had lost, he gave a little fist pump knowing what that meant for the Seahawks.The NFC playoffs could be routed through the Pacific Northwest again.“We can only control what we can control and so we’re focused on us,” Baldwin said.The Seahawks knocked their most heated rival out of contention Sunday behind another stingy defensive effort and Marshawn Lynch’s 91 yards rushing and a touchdown in Seattle’s 17-7 win over San Francisco.Gone are the 49ers from the postseason conversation. Now the question is whether Seattle (10-4) can win its final two games — at Arizona and vs. St. Louis — and potentially land the No. 1 seed in the NFC for the second straight season.The opportunity at home-field advantage was implausible four weeks ago when the Seahawks were 6-4 and teetering in the NFC playoff picture. After four straight wins and the Packers’ loss at Buffalo on Sunday, the Seahawks have the chance at more than just a postseason berth.“I don’t care about that stuff right now,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “We have two more games to play and we have one more game that’s at hand right now. That’s all we got. The rest of it doesn’t matter.”last_img read more

The Department of Children and Families is also investigating.Mercado was ordered held without bail pending a hearing.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. LAWRENCE, Mass. (WSVN) – A boy called police after finding drugs stashed in his father’s suitcase, telling police, “I think my dad sells drugs.”Police said the 11-year-old boy found 212 grams of heroin and fentanyl in his 40-year-old father’s belongings, prompting a phone call to the city’s police department.After obtaining an arrest warrant, officers searched the man’s luggage and found the drugs packed in multiple plastic bags, as well as several other empty bags, authorities said.The suspect’s son told police that he had seen him conducting a drug deal earlier in the day. Officers estimated the drugs to be worth about $8,500.“I commend this young man for being brave enough to come forward and report that these dangerous substances were in his home,” Lawrence Police Chief James Fitzpatrick said. “It is frightening to consider that the drugs the boy found are strong enough to cause serious harm to full grown adults, merely by being in their presence, and to consider what could have happened had he not immediately called for help from law enforcement.”The father, Yamil Mercado, 41, turned himself into police. He is charged with heroin trafficking and reckless endangerment of a child.In court Friday, prosecutors told the judge that the boy knew his father had a history of selling drugs. last_img read more

That way app developers can stay in touch without actually capturing your address. Sign In will work on Macs, the Apple Watch and iOS, the mobile operating system that powers the iPhone and iPad.  It’s also part of Apple’s ongoing plan to make privacy one of its key selling points in direct contrast to its rivals, which use sign-on services to help craft a profile of users so they can better serve lucrative, targeted ads as part of what some are calling surveillance capitalism. Since Apple generates its revenue from the sale of devices and services, and not ads, it isn’t as interested in your information.

Sign In is also a direct challenge to the idea you need to “pay a heavy privacy price” for the convenience of a sign-on service, says Guy “Bud” Tribble, vice president of software technology at Apple. While its rivals track you so they can keep tabs on your online activities and collect personal info, Apple and CEO Tim Cook have said that privacy is a “fundamental human right.””It’s not rocket science to say, ‘Hey wouldn’t that be great to have that without the tracking part of it,'” Tribble said in an interview after the new service was unveiled to applause at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday. “Our whole point of view is giving more control to the user over things like their data.” $999 Jun 30 • iOS 13 and iPadOS public betas: How to download and install them now $999 See it reading • At WWDC 2019, Apple touts Sign In as convenient without privacy hit Apple iPhone XS $999 • WWDC 2019 Privacy Facebook Google Apple Apple HomeKit Preview • iPhone XS is the new $1,000 iPhone X Sprint Mentioned Above Apple iPhone XS (64GB, space gray) Everything Apple announced from its WWDC 2019 keynote That’s put a spotlight on Facebook and Google, which do make the majority of their money on personalized ads. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Google CEO Sundar Pichai have stressed during their own developer conferences in the last few months that they too care about your data and are working on building more privacy protections into their products. “We’re not really taking a shot at anybody,” Cook said in an interview with CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell. “We focus on the user. And the user wants the ability to go across numerous properties on the web without being under surveillance…I actually think it’s a very reasonable request for people to make,”Google declined to comment on Apple’s sign-in feature, while Facebook didn’t comment.A natural extensionSign In came about partly because some of Apple’s own employees started questioning these services and whether it could do better. “Some of us have probably used social media single-sign on ourselves,” Tribble said with a chuckle. Apple got its start by giving people more control over their computing, said Tribble, a member of the original Macintosh design team. So giving people more control over their data is a natural extension, he added. Jun 14 • Apple Music vs. Apple Podcast vs. Apple TV: What’s the difference?

This is what happens to your Apple music now It’s a middle ground between browsers that let trackers run loose and more privacy-focused options like the Brave browser. It’s also an example of the kind of innovation that leads to protecting your data even if a service is free, Tribble said.”Privacy should be available in every device and in every service,” Tribble said, in response to an editorial by Google CEO Sundar Pichai saying that “privacy shouldn’t be a luxury good,” a knock on Apple’s high prices for its iPhones, iPads and Macs.Tribble, meanwhile, supports privacy regulation and believes the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, which just passed its first year on the books, is a good model. He said he hopes US regulators learn from it, noting that GDPR “got a lot of things right.”  Getting secure in the Home(kit)Apple’s HomeKit Secure Video emerged as a reaction to the explosion of smart home cameras in the market, Tribble said.Under Apple’s system, the video would go through a HomeKit-enabled device, which handles the object detection and analysis, and then encrypts the video and sends it to Apple’s servers. Unlike other smart home video companies, Apple has no way to see the video. The user can access the video with a unique key to decrypt the footage, he said.homekitCraig Federighi, head of software for Apple, talks about HomeKit Secure Video. James Martin/CNET Likewise, the company also introduced its HomeKit Routers program, which is a deal with routers makers to put up firewalls around connected devices in the home.”The last thing you want is a home with lightbulbs and switches open to the wide internet,” Tribble said.It’s one of the many areas where Apple is trying to put a stake in the ground in privacy.”We’ve been taking this approach for years,” he said. “That’s not something we just came up with in the last year. That gives us the different perspective than some of the other companies who are coming at this recently.”CNET’s Queenie Wong and Richard Nieva contributed to this report. The story originally published at 8 a.m. PT. Update, 12:27 a.m. PT: Adds comment from Tim Cook. 11:25 a.m. PT: Adds background and details about Apple’s policy.  Aug 19 • iOS 13 and iPadOS: How to join the beta, use the best new features on your iPhone and iPad CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

While the goal is to design user interfaces and experiences that ask your permission each time an app asks for personal information and spell out how that data is being used, he acknowledged, “our job is never done.”But it starts with companies acknowledging that it’s their job to help consumers understand what’s going on with their data. Tribble believes Apple has led in this area.”Apple has done more than most in pushing our industry forward and being an example of how to do that,” he said.Taking privacy seriouslyApple reviews 100,000 apps a week, and Tribble said the company rejects 40 percent of those apps — many for privacy reasons. The company has made it a priority to stamp out apps that try to fool users, or seek out permissions on your phone they have no right to ask for.That’s not to say there isn’t an opportunity to do business with Apple. He talked about a technique called “privacy-protected ad-click attribution,” or a way for Apple’s Safari browser to track what ads you’ve clicked but mask your specific details as it sends the information to advertisers. Privacy should be available in every device and in every service. Bud Tribble, VP of software technology at Applelast_img read more

first_imgEnlarge ImageImagine this shape but with a truck bed hanging off the back and you’ll get an idea of what Ford’s allegedly been cooking up. Ford The hype building around the upcoming Ford Bronco is real. People are genuinely excited, and so far, from what we’ve seen, that Bronco excitement seems to be warranted. What do you get when you mix that with the massive amount of love people have had for the Jeep Gladiator pickup?Well, according to a report by Automobile on Monday, Ford wants to find out because it’s going to offer a pickup version of the Bronco SUV. Will it be a perfect storm that has everyone from hard-core off-roaders and mall-crawlers to enthusiasts and your boring-ass dad throwing their hard-earned money at the Blue Oval?Probably, if Ford manages not to screw the Bronco up in the first place, and by that, we mean that the Bronco needs to have real off-road chops in all its forms, like the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator. Next, it needs to look the business. If it looks like a boxy Ranger or an F-series, then why would people pay the premium that we’re betting Ford is angling for?Automobile’s report pegs the Bronco pickup as going into production sometime in 2024. That means that the Gladiator will have the market more or less to itself for another five years, but that could be a good thing because people will be ready for something new by then.When Roadshow asked for confirmation on the rumors of a Bronco pickup, Ford representatives responded that they don’t comment on speculation about future products.While the idea of a Bronco pickup is exciting, we’re still way more focused on seeing the SUV version, which should be making its public debut sometime later this year as a 2021 model. 2020 Jeep Gladiator proves door-free is carefree 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal Ford Jeep Tags Share your voice Ford Jeep 2019 Honda Ridgeline review: Light duty, heavy punch 2020 Toyota Tacoma first drive: Small tweaks make this midsize truck even better Now playing: Watch this: 0 Trucks SUVs 2020 Jeep Gladiator: Taking truck love to a new level 6:19 Post a comment 34 Photos More From Roadshowlast_img read more

first_imgKachin Independence Army cadets File photo : WikipediaFighting between Myanmar forces and a rebel group in the remote northeast could escalate, a spokesman of the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) told Reuters on Friday, worsening a humanitarian crisis that has displaced more than 4,000 people.One of Myanmar’s most powerful rebel groups, the KIA has regularly clashed with government troops in the mountainous region bordering China and India since 2011, when a 17-year-old ceasefire broke down.Since early April, the conflict has escalated, driving more than 4,000 people from their homes, civil society groups based in Kachin have said.Clashes have been reported in half of the 18 townships in the region, where the Myanmar military has sent about 2,000 infantry troops, fighter aircraft and helicopters to combat KIA forces, said the spokesman, Col Naw Bu.”The army is sending more troops from the lower part of Myanmar and that’s why the fighting will be more intense,” he said.”The number of refugees could increase and they could suffer more challenges,” he added, calling the clashes “the worst conflict” since Kachin soldiers started fighting the government in the early 1960s.He declined to give details of the casualties sustained by the KIA or its military deployment.Myanmar’s military and civilian government officials did not immediately respond to requests from Reuters for comment.Aid groups have urged the government to allow access to the village of Aung Lawt, where about 2,000 people have been trapped in a remote forest with no access to humanitarian aid for two weeks.”The longer it takes, the more challenging it is for them. And most of the people are elderly, women and children,” said Gum Sha Aung, an official of a coalition of Kachin-based humanitarian groups.A coalition of 32 groups in Kachin this week urged the United Nations Security Council to refer Myanmar to the international criminal court, citing recent deaths and displacement of civilians in Myanmar army operations.”Women, children, elderly people forced to flee their homes because of the relentless fighting in Kachin,” Mark Cutts, the head of a U.N. agency coordinating humanitarian affairs in Myanmar, said in a Twitter message on Thursday.”Local humanitarian organizations doing outstanding work trying to help. But when will this decades-old conflict end?”Reaching a comprehensive peace agreement with Myanmar’s ethnic minorities has been leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s stated top priority, but the Buddhist-majority country has seen the worst fighting with rebels in years since she took office in 2016.Ending the civil war, eclipsed in media coverage by the plight of nearly 700,000 Rohingya Muslim refugees who fled to neighbouring Bangladesh, is key to further development of the resource-rich country.last_img read more

first_img ‘Cannon Busters’ Is The Black Anime We’ve Been Waiting…Casio G-SHOCK Unveils ‘Akira’-Inspired ‘Neo Tokyo̵… One of the reasons anime is so popular and influential around the world is the incredible diversity of subject matter. Yes, there are goofy cartoon animals and fantasy heroes just like American cartoons, but there are also series about cooking, board games, romance, and more. One of the most popular subgenres is sports anime, which use the hyper-kinetic visual style to depict dramatic clashes on the baseball diamond, the basketball court or the ping-pong table.If you’re just getting into sports anime, it can be a little overwhelming — there are hundreds of series to choose from, and not all of them are worth your time. That’s why we put together this list of eleven all-time classics from the early days to the modern era. Whether you like fast action, deep character development or wacky hijinks, there’s something in sports anime for you.Ace Of DiamondBaseball is wildly popular in Japan, and there are dozens of anime series focused on the game. One of the most robust and watchable is Ace of Diamond. Pitcher Eijun Sawamura is the top player on his small high school team, but when he transfers to prestiguous private Seidou High School, he discovers that he’s no longer a big fish in a tiny pond and one player’s skill isn’t enough to win games. Over 126 episodes, the show does an impeccable job of balancing the on-field action, where each game has huge repercussions for Sawamura and the team, with the interpersonal relationships between the players. It’s a textbook example of successful sports anime.Slam DunkBasketball is in many ways the perfect team sport for anime adaptation. It’s fast-paced, with players contesting each other both on the horizontal and vertical plane. Players can have outlandish and individual appearances that help them stand out from the crowd. And the ebb and flow of the game can make for high drama. Classic sports anime Slam Dunk tells the tale of delinquent Hanamichi Sakuragi who joins his high school team to impress a girl and discovers his passion for the game, becoming a better person along the way. Putting together a team of misfits and outcasts, he brings his school to the top of the league. The anime is from the mid 1990s but still holds up well today.Ping Pong The AnimationBased on a manga series by the quirky Taiyo Matsumoto, Ping Pong The Animation preserves that artist’s unusual character designs and love for Dutch angles and weird framing. Childhood friends Peco and Smile are both members of the Katase High School table tennis team, and over the course of the eleven episode series they wrestle with what it means to have a talent, both the joy and the responsibility of it. The anime version goes deep into many of the series’ supporting cast as well, and it’s just an absolute pleasure to watch director Yuasa Masaaki work with the material.MajorOne of the underrated aspects of anime is how the medium lets creators play with time in a way that live-action TV can’t. One of the coolest examples is baseball series Major, which starts out with main character Goro Honda in kindergarten and ends with him in his mid-30s. Honda’s father is struggling pro Shigeharu Honda, who is killed by a stray pitch leaving his son an orphan. Undeterred, Goro joined his local Little League team and, over the course of the series, worked his way up to the majors and started mentoring other children. The dramatic scope of Major is really stunning and the show handles complex emotions with delicacy and restraint.CapetaGo-kart racing is officially a sport, and unlike many other auto-themed anime series, Capeta leans in hard to the rules. The show starts with ten year old Kappeita Taira’s father building him a kart out of scrap material from his job at a paving company. In his first race, Capeta manages to nearly overtake a young pro, which awakens the spirit of competition in both kids that will continue through adulthood. The anime really captures the grind of racing – how drivers need to train their reflexes and also how things can go swiftly and horribly wrong on the course. It’s also expertly paced, balancing the thrill of competition with the quiet moments between Capeta and his father as they chase their dreams.Hajime No IppoPlenty of anime series tackle the subject of one-on-one combat, but few do it in a real sports context. Hajime no Ippo, based on the manga series by George Morikawa, is an exception. High school student Ippo Makunouchi just can’t stand up for himself and so is regularly beaten down by bullies. In the aftermath of one such attack, he’s befriended by a pro boxer who brings him to the gym and is startled when Ippo just lays down holy hell on a punching bag. The series follows his attempts to learn the “sweet science” and battle numerous opponents along the way. One thing the anime does really well is add dimensionality to Ippo’s counterparts in the ring – they all seem like real people with their own reasons for boxing, not just caricatures for him to punch out.Eyeshield 21All of the drama and power of American football is brought to the world of anime in Eyeshield 21, based on the manga series by Riichiro Inagaki Yusuke Murata. When Sena Kobayakawa starts at Deimon Private Senior High School, he just wants to blend in with the crowd. But when the football coach of the Devil Bats notices his speed and agility, he’s drafted onto the team and forced to wear a helmet that hides his features so other teams don’t poach him. While American football isn’t super popular in Japan, that’s part of the charm as Sena and his coach have to scrape up misfits and weirdos to build a championship team. Murata’s quirky character designs made this series a huge hit.Prince Of TennisOne-on-one sports lend themselves well to anime adaptations, and tennis is a great example. Based on a wildly popular manga, Prince of Tennis follows prodigy Ryoma Echizen as he tries to come out of his pro father’s shadow and develop his own style of tennis. The anime delivers a striking, hyperkinetic take on the game, with plenty of trick shots and special techniques on display, but the real draw of it is Ryoma’s growth as a character and his relationships with teammates, coaches and rivals. Prince of Tennis was one of the series responsible for starting a new sports anime boom in the early 2000s.Captain TsubasaIt’s sometimes hard to really grasp the cultural power of anime and manga in Japan, but Captain Tsubasa gives us a good example. Before the series premiered in 1983, the country didn’t even have a professional league. A generation of kids grew up with Tsubasa’s incredible action on the pitch, and numerous modern-day pros like Lionel Messi watched it dubbed into Spanish when they were young. It’s also one of the longest-running series on this list, with a new set of episodes just released for the 2018 World Cup – considering that the anime begins with main character Tsubasa Oozora as an 11 year old boy, that’s pretty spectacular.HaikyuuIf there’s a sport, there’s probably an anime about it. Haikyuu is one of the few volleyball-centric series out there, but it’s also a favorite of many fans for how it delivers unabashed enthusiasm and character development at the same time. Protagonist Shoyo Hinata falls in love with volleyball after stumbling on a championship match on TV, but in his first match he gets absolutely slaughtered. Undeterred, he ends up teaming with his rival to develop an unstoppable partnership that uses both of their natural skills. In addition to high-energy action on the court, Haikyuu also boasts a truly great soundtrack and an engrossing supporting cast.Yuri On IceOne of the most acclaimed anime series in any genre of the last few years, Yuri On Ice takes a much-maligned subject — competitive figure skating — and uses it to craft a deep and resonant story of mentorship, romance and discipline. When promising Japanese figure skater Yuri Katsuki suffers the worst loss of his career, he returns to his hometown unsure if he’ll ever compete again. That all changes when his idol, Russian skater Victor Nikiforov, takes an interest in him and offers to coach him to the top. The relationship between the two men is teased out with incredible narrative delicacy. Make no mistake: this is the story of two men falling in love, with sports as the medium of their romance. Skating is how the characters communicate, express their emotions and deal with the world. It’s quite the accomplishment.More Anime on Geek.com:The Best Anime on Hulu11 Forgotten Anime Series From The 90s That Still Hold Up Today11 Dumbest Character Names in Mobile Suit Gundam Stay on targetlast_img read more

first_imgCairn India on Saturday said its board of directors will meet on Sunday to deliberate on the proposed merger with Vedanta Ltd.In a BSE filing Cairn India said: “A meeting of Board of Directors of the company will be held on June 14, 2015, inter alia, to consider and evaluate amalgamation of the company with Vedanta Limited.” Meanwhile, as per sources, boards of Cairn India and Vedanta Ltd at a meeting tomorrow will consider ‘reverse’ merger aimed at cutting debt on Vedanta books as well as the share swap ratio and decide on the timelines for completion of the merger. Vedanta in 2011 acquired majority control of Cairn India for $8.67 billion. It holds 59.9 per cent in the oil explorer through its various units as of March 31. As a prelude to the merger, Vedanta had this month bought some of the shares held by Agarwal’s Twin Star Mauritius Holdings to raise its stake in Cairn India to 23.71 per cent from 18.73 per cent. Twin Star now holds 34.43 per cent in Cairn India. Vedanta may at a later date merge its other cash cows, Hindustan Zinc Ltd and Bharat Aluminium, they said.last_img read more

Jason Wambsgans/ Chicago Tribune via AP, Pool) Attorney’s statement: Charges dropped against actor Smollett CHICAGO — Attorneys said Tuesday that 16 felony charges accusing “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett of making a false police report about a racist and homophobic attack in downtown Chicago have been dropped.Smollett’s attorneys, Tina Glandian and Patricia Brown Holmes, released the following statement:“Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him. Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgment.“Jussie and many others were hurt by these unfair and unwarranted actions. This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion. That is wrong. It is a reminder that a victim, in this case Jussie, deserves dignity and respect. Dismissal of charges against the victim in this case was the only just result.“Jussie is relieved to have this situation behind him and is very much looking forward to getting back to focusing on his family, friends and career.”The Associated Press AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by The Associated Press Posted Mar 26, 2019 9:11 am PDTlast_img read more
