More Collaboration to Address Waste Management Issues in Region – UN Official

first_imgHead of the United Nations (UN) Environment Caribbean Sub-Regional Office, Vincent Sweeney, says that a more collaborative approach will be taken to address waste management issues in the region.Mr. Sweeney, who was addressing journalists at the end of the Caribbean Water and Wastewater Association (CWWA) 27th Annual Conference, at the Hilton Rose Hall Resort and Spa in Montego Bay, St. James, on October 12, said the meeting presented opportunities for more waste management collaborations in the region.“We identified a number of opportunities to address some priorities of the region, including pollution, landfill management and the plastic bag ban. We agreed on a way forward to continue our collaborations and ensure that issues are addressed at the political level, possibly through the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat, the various CARICOM councils, through meetings with regional environmental ministers and the United Nations,” Mr. Sweeney noted.For her part, Senior Technician at the Belize Solid Waste Management Authority, Lumen Cayetano, said that the disaster waste workshop held on October 9 during the conference, resulted in a “commitment to develop disaster waste management plans (for the region) and the manner in which those plans will be implemented, considering the environmental impact of disaster  waste.”“The fact that it is a special type of waste means its management requires much attention, she emphasised.”Ms. Cayetano also underscored that regional stakeholders shared ideas and experiences, and presented case studies which should aid in the development of disaster waste management strategies.The conference, which was held from October 8 to 12, brought together stakeholders from across the region to address the issues of water and waste as resources in sustainable development.last_img read more

Minister Refers RCMP Response for Independent Review

first_imgJustice Minister Ross Landry will refer the RCMP’s handling of calls for assistance for Nicole (Ryan) Doucet to the Commission for Public Complaints against the RCMP. “It’s important that Nova Scotians, especially those experiencing domestic violence, know that they can go to police for help,” said Mr. Landry. “One of the reasons victims of domestic violence stay silent is that they don’t believe people will listen. Government is listening, police are listening, the community is listening. I hope that an independent review can put any doubts and questions victims have to rest.” On Feb. 1, the RCMP submitted a report to Mr. Landry detailing the results of its internal investigation. “I am referring this matter for independent review not because of what I read in the RCMP report, but because of what I heard from Nova Scotians. Nova Scotians are calling for an independent process.” The Commission for Public Complaints can begin a review after a complaint against the RCMP when it is of public interest. The commission is an independent agency created by Parliament to ensure public complaints about the RCMP are examined fairly and impartially.

Algerians versus Moroccans Why Do They Hate Us

By Majid Morceli San Francisco- On the surface, we are brothers and sisters: we have a common culture, language, traditions, religion, history of colonization, and sooner or later, a common future. We are so similar that anyone examining our two countries would think that Morocco and Algeria are one nation.But sadly, that is sadly not the case. We are very separate, and impressions are deceiving. As far as I know, Algerians have an extreme hate for Moroccans. It is not something you can detect immediately when Moroccans and Algerians meet in person, but as soon as we find ourselves reading what Algerians write about Moroccans, they show their true color. Their comments and writings about Moroccans are so heinous, hateful, and hurtful that the reader would think that the intended receivers of their insults are the Jews that Algerians love to hate. As a matter of fact, Algerians never shied away from comparing Morocco to the state of Israel; there is not a day that goes by that the Algerian media takes a break from bashing Moroccans. Algerian media outlets have never written or said a good (or simply truthful) thing about Moroccans, and the so-called independent media in Algeria is just as horrific when it comes to attacking Morocco. They feed Algerian readers lies and fallacies about Moroccans, and their favorite propaganda is that Morocco is an expansionist neighbor and will not hesitate to invade Algeria. They also say that Morocco is at the command of France and Israel, that we are drug dealers, that Moroccan women are prostitutes, that our country thrives on sex tourism, and that the latest freeing of a Spanish pedophile is a just one example of the many things that they say are wrong with Moroccans.On the other hand, Moroccans are not sitting with their arms crossed at the receiving end of the vicious attacks by Algerians: they respond as viciously, but rarely attack Algerian citizens and their dignity. Their main targets are the invisible generals running Algeria behind the scenes. They have figured out that these generals are the ones fueling the cold war between Morocco and Algeria. After all, they are the ones who are controlling every aspect of Algerian life, feeding their people lies, and giving them false sense of pride.Right when we lose hope and witness that the majority of Algerians in online forums insult everything is Moroccan, there is always a ray of hope when you see a very small minority of Algerians trying to educate their compatriots. They preach about not hiding their own misery by going after Moroccans and pointing to all the ills of Algeria—a police state run by a ruthless military regime who has not hesitated to return to power a president who will unconsciously run the country from his wheelchair.Unlike our neighbors, Moroccans will not be hurtful toward the everyday Algerian and do not hold grudges. The majority of Algerians who have visited Morocco will attest to this fact. Unfortunately, we cannot claim the same thing when describing our brothers in Algeria. Let us remember that it is Algeria who went as far as expelling Moroccans and taking away their property—a fact that Algeria continue to deny to this day, and Morocco does not like to talk about.Glancing at some of the comments from Algerians in their media regarding the latest meeting of the Maghreb Arab Union (UMA) that took place in Morocco, the extreme majority of Algerian commentators could not help themselves with name-calling, insulting, and even giving advice to their government on how to deal with Morocco. According to many of them, the obvious advice is to never open the border, expel Morocco from the UMA, and replace it with the Western Sahara.Many try to disregard these comments and treat them as harmless nonsense, but we should not. If anything, it clearly shows the Algerian psych, who we are dealing with, and to what extreme Algerians are willing to go to defeat their number one obsession: Morocco. A fifty-year old conflict with no end in sight and incessant hate is not something Moroccans should simply discard: it is something to at least keep in mind. Next time you hear an Algerian—or a Moroccan, for that matter—say that we are brothers and sisters, just think about it for a moment: are we?Edited by Katrina BushkoThe views expressed in this article are the author’s own and do not necessarily reflect Morocco World News’ editorial policy© Morocco World News.

Norfolk County native pitches shutout game in Pikeville Kentucky

Norfolk County is being represented in Kentucky baseball.Brady Cappe pitched a complete game shutout for the University of Pikeville Bears on April 7.Cappe had the best pitching performance by a Bear this season, and was named the player of the week in the Mid-South Conference Baseball Association.The 6’2” pitcher threw 140 pitches over nine innings, giving up just five hits and three walks throughout the game, ending in a 6-0 win over Campbellsville University.This was the first complete game shutout for the university in Kentucky in nearly two years.“I haven’t had a bad season, it’s been up and down for me, but once I got to the end I thought ‘I’ve been through seven innings, I may as well close it out. Get the job done, basically,’” Cappe said in a phone interview on Monday afternoon.Cappe said he does not feel more pressure now that he’s performed this well.“I’ve always been held to a high standard, especially with baseball. So I’m kind of used to it I guess,” Cappe said.The 21-year-old spent most of his childhood playing for the Port Dover minor baseball association. As he began to excel in the sport, Cappe’s parents, Chad and Cindy, moved their family of five to Brantford for him to play at a higher level. The family has recently moved to Waterford.The pitcher played baseball in Brantford for a few years before moving up to the Fieldhouse Pirates in Burlington, and then onto the Ontario Blue Jays.Once he reached the age for college ball, Cappe was offered a scholarship to pitch at Lake Land College in Illinois. He spent two years there honing in on his craft, holding a 3.59 ERA and collecting 62 strikeouts in his second season.After his two years at Lake Land came to an end, Cappe was offered a scholarship to the University of Pikeville, where he is now attending his first year.“Right now I’m open minded, whatever happens happens. We’ll see what happens with baseball, but if that doesn’t work we’ll go from there,” Cappe said about his plans for after university.Cappe currently ranks seventh in the Mid-South Conference, with a 0.265 batting average against. He has earned his first weekly honour of the season, and of his career.astaylor@postmedia.com read more

Security Council expands military component of UN mission in DR of Congo

By unanimously adopting resolution 1445, the Security Council agreed to a new concept of operations for the UN Organization Mission in the DRC (MONUC) as outlined by Secretary-General Kofi Annan in a special report, which called for shifting the emphasis of the Mission’s activity eastward and significantly strengthening its military component by creating a “forward force” of two robust task forces based in Kindu and Kisangani.The new forces will provide “point security” at disarmament and demobilization sites for the conduct of the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration process, and will assist in the destruction of impounded weapons and munitions. Additional “riverine” units will be used to support the reopening of the Congo River for commercial traffic.The Mission will also continue to monitor the withdrawal of foreign troops from the territory of the DRC, which the Council welcomed today in its resolution, noting that 23,400 Rwandan soldiers as well as those from Uganda, Zimbabwe and Angola have been recalled home.The 15-nation body also stressed the importance of the withdrawals being completed in a transparent, orderly and verified manner, and underlined the need for the parties to help the verification of the withdrawals by providing MONUC with detailed information on the movements.In his report, the Secretary-General had suggested that the recent agreements concerning the withdrawal of Rwandan, Ugandan and related forces from the territory of the DRC represented “a concrete opportunity to move forward with the disarmament, demobilization, repatriation, resettlement and reintegration of armed groups.”Today’s resolution also welcomed the commitment of the DRC Government and other Congolese parties to achieve an inclusive agreement on the political transition, stressing the importance of such an accord to the wider peace process and calling on all sides to cooperate actively with the aim of quickly reaching agreement on such a pact.Meanwhile, the Council expressed deep concern over both the humanitarian situation and the intensification of ethnically targeted violence in the Ituri region in the northeastern part of the DRC. The resolution called on all parties to cooperate in the establishment of the Ituri Pacification Commission and requested the Secretary-General to increase the presence of MONUC stationed in the area as security conditions permit. read more

Gravely concerned by events in Liberia Security Council demands an end to

In a statement to the press following a briefing on the situation in Liberia, Council President Sergey Lavrov of the Russian Federation stressed the urgent need for the combatants to spare the lives and property of civilians, to maintain defensive positions well clear of the capital Monrovia – where tens of thousands of refugees have fled to escape fighting elsewhere in the country – as well as the port city of Buchanan.Council members also stressed the urgent need for the combatants to refrain from committing further violations of human rights and international humanitarian law, and in that regard demanded that the parties act to ensure the security and unrestricted access of humanitarian workers so they can provide assistance to all areas throughout the country. Informing reporters that the briefing had covered Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s latest report on Liberia, as well as the peace talks now underway in Akosambo, Ghana between the Liberian Government and opposition forces, Ambassador Lavrov said Council members urged all Liberians to work together to create a transitional government.”Council members welcomed Liberian President Charles Taylor’s June 4 announcement that he was prepared to step down no later than the end of his current term,” Ambassador Lavrov said.”[They] also expressed their support of the work of the Sierra Leone Special Court, took note of its recent public statements regarding indictments and expressed the need to ensure both peace and justice are achieved in Sierra Leone,” he added. read more

Côte dIvoire requests UN assistance for upcoming elections

According to the UN Mission in Côte D’Ivoire (MINUCI), the formal request for electoral assistance came in a letter to Secretary-General Kofi Annan from Prime Minister Seydou Diarra, head of the Ivoirian transitional government established under the Linas-Marcoussis Agreement last January. That accord, brokered by France, calls on the government, rebels and political opposition to share power until elections in 2005.The Prime Minister asked the world body to led a hand during the run-up to the elections in order to help create ideal conditions in which the ballot could be held in a transparent, fair and credible manner. He stressed that the success of the first general elections under the accord were the key to the long-term success of Côte d’Ivoire. read more

Developers on the hook for more costs in new builds

by Mike Tarasko Posted Jan 12, 2016 6:47 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Developers on the hook for more costs in new builds Developers will no longer get a break on infrastructure costs for new developments.Calgary’s city council has unanimously passed a bill doing away with the old subsidy system, now leaving home builders on the hook for more of the infrastructure development costs for roads and sewers.The levies will add up to $464,000 per hectare to new suburban developments, while homes being built in established areas will cost roughly $6,200 more.Odds are the changes will tack on about one per cent to the cost of a new home, but bring in an extra $50-million a year to city coffers.There is a bonus system in place to encourage density, as that benefits the city with higher tax income.Under the old system, the city covered roughly 50 per cent of infrastructure costs for new development. read more

UN and Brazil sign 20 million agreement to help cotton farmers in

“This agreement represents an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the effectiveness of South-South cooperation between developing world partners as a vehicle for sustainable economic growth,” said the Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), José Graziano da Silva, at the signing ceremony at the agency’s headquarters in Rome. Cotton is fundamental to the economies of many developing nations, particularly in West and Central Africa, where around 10 million small farmers depend on the sector for their income, according to FAO. As a result, the sector occupies a strategic position in the development and poverty-reduction strategies of a number of governments in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The four year project will target participating countries with technical assistance and training in best practice in cotton cultivation and marketing. Experiences, technologies and techniques acquired through the initiative will be captured and disseminated to promote further knowledge- and skills transfer, FAO said in a new release. As one of the major producers of cotton in the world, Brazil also has considerable experience in devising new technologies for the cotton production chain, including through cooperative rural development efforts undertaken with other cotton producers such as Benin, Burkina Faso, Chad and Mali. The project seeks to capitalize on these experiences to strengthen the agricultural sectors in developing countries and foster cooperation on rural development. Initially, the project will focus on Haiti and countries in the MERCOSUR zone (South America’s ‘Southern Common Market’), with the possibility of extending it to other developing countries in Latin America and Africa. The Brazilian Cotton Institute will provide $10 million in financial support, while the Brazilian Cooperation Agency will supply an additional $10 million. FAO’s Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean will contribute $200,000 worth of non-financial support, including the provision of expertise and technical information, as well as mobilizing its international networks in support of the project. read more

Mozilla Junior aims for better iPad browsing

first_imgApple has sold millions and millions of iPads. Mozilla has hundreds of millions of users. It stands to reason, then, that there are plenty of folks out there that would really, really like a Mozilla-built browser to run on their iOS tablet. That’s precisely what they’re working on with Junior.According to Mozilla’s Alex Limi, Junior is all about re-imagining browsing on the iPad and making the user experience “more fun and more ergonomic”. The Junior prototype runs in full screen mode while you browse, with only two semi-transparent buttons on either side of the screen for controls. There’s no tab strip or Awesome Bar, and no swiping right to left to reveal a menu as on the Android version of Firefox. To open a new page or switch tabs, you call up the dashboard (above left).Like Kylo does on the big screen, Junior offers big-screen-friendly buttons for popular websites instead of their favicons — which just don’t pack enough pixels to look good on a high-resolution device. Navigation is handled by the button on the left, and other common browsing actions (like social sharing) by the button on the right. They’ve been placed on the lower portion of the screen so as to be positioned within easy reach of your thumbs when you grasp the iPad.One of the most exciting features Limi demonstrated was Junior’s support for multiple user profiles. A quick swipe on the dashboard reveals a screen where you can create new accounts or switch among existing accounts. It’s a feature that many would love to see integrated into iOS itself, since it’s common for a family to share a single iPad.This prototype isn’t Mozilla’s first venture into iOS browsing, of course. Firefox Home hit the App Store in July of 2010, sandwiching Safari with Firefox Sync on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. If the Foundation eventually submits Junior to the App Store, it’ll be interesting to see if Firefox Sync comes along for the ride. Right now, it’s still just a prototype… so we’ll have to wait patiently to hear more from Mozilla about Junior’s future on iOS.More at Mozillalast_img read more

Alaska Legislature Ends Efforts To Overturn Budget Vetoes

first_img“In a financial climate like we’re talking about, with cuts of this scale, everything has to be on the table,” Johnsen said. The administration will not send out blanket pink slips and then pull some back, Johnsen said, but will attempt a strategic approach. If multiple campuses offer degrees in a certain field of study, he said, some could be eliminated. Classes for the fall semester will go on as scheduled, he said. Nonacademic programs would be the first targets for rapid cost reduction, including athletics, Johnsen said. Dunleavy also eliminated or reduced funding for early childhood education, public libraries, Medicaid dental coverage, behavioral health treatment grants, the state arts council and public broadcasting, the Anchorage Daily News reported. He eliminated funding for the senior benefits program, which paid cash to poor senior citizens, ocean rangers who monitored cruise ship discharges, and the Alaska Legal Service Corp, which provides free help to poor Alaskans in civil lawsuits. Dunleavy declared the special session should meet in Wasilla. Legislative leaders instead met at the Capitol in Juneau, but more than a third of the legislators, including House Minority members and a handful of senators, gathered at a Wasilla middle school gymnasium. A $135 million loss correlates to about 1,300 positions, Johnsen said, but the “tidal wave-size” ripple effects from the loss of connected funding, such as federal research grants, likely will affect 2,000 positions. “We’re not done,” Edgmon said. “There are other avenues.” Dunleavy called the special session to consider the size of Alaska Permanent Fund dividends, the annual checks to nearly every Alaskan from the earnings of a $44 billion state savings account. The university, a global leader in Arctic research, was Dunleavy’s biggest veto target. He cut $130 million in state funding for the fiscal year that began July 1 on top of a $5 million cut made by the legislature. Costello on Monday was ousted from her position as Senate majority leader. She and others gathering at the makeshift legislative hall claimed it was the legitimate special session. University officials have already sent out furlough notices to 2,500 employees requiring them to take 10 days of unpaid leave. Regents will meet Monday in Fairbanks to consider declaring a “financial exigency,” allowing administrators to streamline layoffs. A divided legislature for the fifth day met in two locations 600 miles (965 kilometers) apart, eliminating any prospect for mustering a three-quarters majority needed to overturn line-item budget vetoes of more than $400 million by Gov. Mike Dunleavy, a first-term Republican from Wasilla.center_img Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Faint hopes of Alaska lawmakers overturning severe budget cuts turned Friday into grim planning for job losses and cuts in services. The UA Board of Regents oversees three main campuses in Fairbanks, Anchorage and Juneau plus 13 campuses sprinkled throughout smaller communities. They met again Friday, recited the Pledge of Allegiance and listened to an invocation and the singing of the state song. State Sen. Mia Costello, R-Anchorage, noted there again were not enough lawmakers to conduct business and ended the session. In Juneau, the state House and Senate met in technical sessions that lasted less than five minutes and did not again consider overriding. Both bodies adjourned until Wednesday. University of Alaska officials on Friday continued planning for a loss of 41% of state funding. Lawmakers had five days after the start of the special session Monday to consider veto overrides. The deadline was midnight Friday. But House Speaker Bryce Edgmon, an Independent from Dillingham, at a press conference said hope of a compromise remains despite the disappointment of the failure to override vetoes. Lawmakers in majority and minority caucuses have been speaking more each day, he said. “We’re not asking them for a formal decision about how they’re going to take reductions, where the reductions will be taken,” said UA President Jim Johnsen at a press conference Wednesday. “That would be for the meeting on July 30,” Important topics remain on the table, including decisions on the state construction budget and the size of dividends from the Alaska Permanent Fund, he said. Closing all 13 satellite campuses would save only $30 million. Closing one major campus would defeat the UA mission of making higher education available where most of the population lives, he said. Dunleavy also reduced money to reimburse school districts for school construction, shifting that debt to municipal taxpayers.last_img read more

The Lightyear One EV adds solar power to radical efficiency

first_img Share your voice 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous More From Roadshow Now playing: Watch this: 28 Photos 4:04 Tags 3 Enlarge ImageThe Lightyear One visually reminds us of a lot of things, most of them good, and we especially love the long aero tail and wheel spats. Lightyear Lightyear One is kind of a rad-sounding name, but it could describe a million different things. Thankfully for us at Roadshow, it’s the name of a new electric car designed by a Dutch company called Lightyear. It was announced on Tuesday, and unlike most of the EVs on sale today, the Lightyear One is going its own way.”The main goal of the car is to fill in where electric cars fall short,” Lex Hoefsloot, head of Lightyear, said in a statement. “Research has shown that range and the lack of charging options are still the top concerns that people have when considering purchasing electric cars.”What does that mean exactly? Well, first of all, the Lightyear One looks like a cross between a Rivian, a Porsche Panamera and an art deco-era Voisin — that is to say, it looks pretty cool and will stand out from other vehicles in a parking lot.Next, the One will extend its electric range through the use of lightweight materials, sleek design and, perhaps most importantly for our purposes, with solar panels. There are other, very clever engineering tricks at work here too that help improve overall efficiency.lightyear-one-interiorEnlarge ImageThe outside of the Lightyear One may be from the future, but the inside is a snooze-fest and doesn’t fit the car’s $135,000 price tag.For example, rather than having one or two motors indirectly driving the vehicle’s wheels as is the case in basically every other car ever, Lightyear One will use individual motors attached directly to the drive wheels. Lightyear claims that its design will reduce parasitic loss through the drivetrain.All its engineering will add up to a range of approximately 450 miles on the WLTP cycle, which as we’ve mentioned previously is a little more generous than our EPA cycle. Still, 400-plus miles of range is nothing to sneeze at. Lightyear estimates that in the right conditions, the solar array alone on the One will generate enough energy to drive over 12,000 miles.The company says it plans to put the One on sale by 2021 in Europe, with a starting price of around 119,000 Euros. That works out to about $135,000, or approximately $7,000 more than a fully loaded Tesla Model S.The company made no mention of whether it plans to come to the US and didn’t immediately respond to Roadshow’s request for comment.

Young Han signed for 3 movies theres 50 Star Wars Underworld scripts

first_imgWill Hayden Christensen appear in #RogueOne? LucasFilm President Kathleen Kennedy explains! #StarWars #swce pic.twitter.com/uF1rLUnf04— ExtraTV (@extratv) July 19, 2016Kennedy also goes on to say that Hayden Christensen will not be appearing in Rogue One which is interesting because I didn’t even realize that was a thought. Many have hoped and guessed he may appear in Episode VIII as a Force ghost, but never in Rogue One. Oh well, at least we got a firm no anyway.Live-Action Star Wars TelevisionAs a fan of George Lucas’s talent, I will never stop being interested in hearing about the now dead Star Wars live-action television series that was in development. Last month we got minor details about one of the show’s storylines for Emperor Sheev Palpatine, and now writer Matthew Graham is talking about his experience working on the project. The most interesting thing he had to say was that the 50 scripts done for the show are very much still being looked at.I went up and saw Lucasfilm in their new offices at Disney while they were still in prep on Episode VII. I know that they’ve got the scripts, and that the scripts have been read. But what they plan to do with it, there’s a big long term strategy for Star Wars that’s being formulated, and only a few people are actually privy to what that entails! Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has also said in the past that the Star Wars Underworld show and video game Star Wars: 1313 are still something that the company is looking at for potential material. It appears that Underworld was going to be an anthology series and as great as it would have been to see how Han got the Millennium Falcon or see Boba Fett on new adventures in a stunning HBO-style production, we now have the opportunity to get all of that as films! I’m amazed and overjoyed that Kennedy and crew have 50 scripts George Lucas helped to develop from which to expand and create more Star Wars stories. Han SoloThe latest Han Solo rumor is that star Alden Ehrenreich has been contracted for three Star Wars films, leading many to theorize that there may be a Han Solo trilogy coming. A source spoke to the NY Daily News and had this to say about Solo:“They feel that his character has the right potential to become a central figure in several movies,” our source said. “They’re keeping things under wraps at the moment, but the deal is that he has signed for at least three movies.” It’s certainly not out of the realm of possibility that a successful Han Solo film could bloom into a trilogy, but the contract could be a “just in case” situation. Disney and Lucasfilm both have a history of locking down actors early to have available for other films within a franchise or universe. From everything we’ve heard, the spin-off Star Wars stories are not going to have sequels, but if the first Han Solo film is a hit, it would be stupid not to continue to use the character.In other Han news, we got confirmation from the head honcho herself that Han will not be appearing in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Because of the rush to cast a young Han Solo before Rogue One finished filming, it was speculated by many that he may have a very small cameo in the film. Kathleen Kennedy spoke to Extra at Star Wars Celebration London and shut down that rumor. This THR article is interesting and the last part raises an eyebrow. https://t.co/CenbY9yaNz pic.twitter.com/EYHdR8toko— MakingStarWars.net (@MakingStarWars) July 27, 2016The film most discussed in the article is Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt’s The Passengers, but the part about Digital Domain also capturing another well-known actress for a science fiction film sequel definitely raises eyebrows. As Star Wars aficionados we know that Star Wars isn’t really sci-fi, and Rogue One isn’t really a sequel, but in the industry terms like these are often used to simplify things.With the legal issues surrounding Digital Domain’s VFX it’s hard to say if they captured Carrie Fisher, and if it would even make it to the film. I’m personally onboard with the de-aging (hello Ant-Man and Civil War), but also don’t think a Leia cameo in Rogue One is necessary at all. We will find out for sure in December.center_img Star Wars Celebration London and San Diego Comic Con are over, but Star Wars news never stops, and we’ve got the best of rumors and speculation for you this week! Let’s get to it!Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryRecently a VFX company famous for de-aging actors in recent films has come under some legal trouble and court documents revealed that they may have been working on a Star Wars film.

Akon is planning to create a cryptocurrency city in Senegal

first_imgIn a world where tech innovators  are gradually revealing themselves as cynical corporate masterminds, we’re lucky to have Akon. The rapper, entrepreneur, and philanthropist announced last week that he is planning to build a city in Senegal where you can only trade using Akoin, Akon’s branded cryptocurrency. The plan is to build what’s being described as a ‘real life Wakanda’, the fictional city in Marvel’s Black Panther movie. image via commons.wikimedia.orgAkon believes cryptocurrency can play a huge role in boosting economic development in Africa. During a panel discussion at this year’s Cannes Lions festival earlier this month, he said that “blockchain and crypto could be the savior for Africa.” He explained that cryptocurrencies would offer many Africans a level of independence and security for ordinary Africans. This has the potential to be hugely empowering, he argues. Akon Crypto City: Akon’s cryptocurrency city Plans for Akon’s cryptocurrency city – called Akon Crypto City – aren’t fully fleshed out. At the Cannes Lions panel discussion, he’s reported as saying “I come with the concepts and let the geeks figure it out.” However, there are some details which you can find on the ICO Impact website. Akon Crypto City will, if everything goes to plan, be “built on 2,000 acres of land gifted to Akon from the President of Senegal” and located near Senegal’s new international airport. You certainly can’t accuse Akon of lacking ambition. According to ICO Impact’s information the goal is “inventing a radical new way of existence.” The Verge draws parallels between Akon Crypto City and a similar project in the Marshall Islands. In February, the small Pacific republic made its own cryptocurrency – called ‘Sovereign’ – its national legal tender. Thanks to the likes of Akon, expect to see cryptocurrency enter the international language of finance much more over the next few years. Perhaps don’t expect to see Akon Crypto City too soon. It’s going to take some time and energy to put everything in place for the project to even begin. That said, don’t bet against Akon either. After the success of his incredible Akon Lighting Africa (which brought lighting to 6 million people on the continent) in 2014, it would seem he’s a man unfazed by limitations.last_img read more
