Advisers mull lower Columbia spring chinook fishing rules

first_imgA bistate advisory group is recommending spring chinook fishing in the lower Columbia River be open daily for boats upstream to Beacon Rock and for bank anglers to Bonneville Dam.State biologists predict such a season would last through April 5 before catching the early-season allocation of 12,700 upper Columbia-origin spring salmon.The overall catch would be about 14,300 when factoring in chinook headed for Oregon’s Willamette River plus the Cowlitz, Kalama and Cowlitz in Washington.The Columbia River Recreational Advisory Group agreed on the 2012 spring chinook sport-fishing structure on Tuesday. A final decision will be made by state officials at a hearing beginning at 10 a.m. Jan. 26 at the Sheraton Portland Airport Hotel, 8235 N.E. Airport Way.Among other fishing options reviewed on Tuesday were:o Boat and bank fishing open daily upstream to Bonneville Dam. The projected final day of fishing would be April 4.o Fishing only downstream of Interstate 5. This has a projected final day of fishing on April 7.o Boat fishing only downstream of I-5, but bank fishing open to Bonneville Dam. Final projected day of fishing is April 7.o Fishing daily downstream of I-5 and through March 21 upstream of I-5, then three days a week (Thursday through Saturday) upstream of I-5. This option projects closures on April 7 below I-5 and April 3 above I-5.o Fishing downstream of Beacon Rock on odd calendar days only beginning March 1. The projected closure date would be April 9.Returns of 314,200 upper Columbia spring chinook and 83,400 Willamette-origin fish are forecast to enter the river.Complicated allocation schemes involving the Endangered Species Act, catch balancing between the Columbia treaty tribes and non-Indians along with sport-commercial sharing arrangements all interact to determine available harvest.last_img read more

Battle Lines Drawn over Commissary Funding

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The fiscal 2016 defense spending bill approved Tuesday by the House Appropriations Committee would restore $322 million DOD had proposed to cut from the Defense Commissary Agency’s budget as an initial step to scaling back the federal subsidy for military grocery stores.The cuts would force U.S. commissaries to be operated more like a business, forcing them to reduce customer discounts, as well as trim staff, store hours and the days stores are open.The Senate Armed Services Committee, however, adopted the department’s proposal to slash funding for commissaries in its draft FY 2016 defense authorization bill, raising the chances that the two chambers will need to find a compromise when they hash out next year’s defense budget, reported Military Times.In its defense authorization bill passed last month, the House rejected DOD’s plan to reduce commissary funding.Senate appropriators have not yet marked up a FY 2016 defense spending bill.The House Appropriations Committee also asked DOD to prepare a report on commissary costs. The department’s budget request asks for the authority to raise prices to cover the cost of shipping goods overseas. The additional costs would be spread across all customers, and would raise overall prices about 2 percent, DOD estimates.The House Appropriations Committee directed DOD officials to hold off raising prices to pay for those overseas charges until 30 days after they submit the required report on commissary costs to the congressional defense committees, according to the story.last_img read more

How does Tamannah stay in touch with her Baahubali costars Prabhas Rana

first_imgRana Daggubati, Prabhas, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia at the audio launch function of Baahubali 2.PR HandoutTamannah Bhatia’s life has changed ever since she worked on SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali. She commands respect and love, not just from the South Indian audience, but from people all across the world.The two-part project gave an experience that she would cherish for the rest of her life. Apart from this, the hot and happening actress managed to become good friends with her co-stars and crew. Usually, actors lose touch after finishing their respective films. Even if they bonded big time during the making of the films, it becomes difficult for them to be in touch due to their busy lives.However, the advent of technologies is making people’s lives simple. Today, staying in touch with your friends, colleagues or well-wishers is simple like never before. People with a basic smartphone can easily communicate with them.It is simple for people to create a WhatsApp group and stay connected. And the Baahubali team too has its own group which helps the people to be in touch with everyone.Tamannah has spilled the beans about it in an interview with Mumbai Mirror. “I still get fan mail from Japan, I’m in touch with Prabhas and Rana (Daggubati), besides being on a Bahubali WhatsApp group where we post memes and updates,” she is quoted as saying by the tabloid.SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali series was shot in a span of five years. The first instalment was released in July 2015, the second instalment hit the screens in 2017.Prabhas, Anushka Shetty, Rana Daggubati and Tamannah Bhatia played the leads, while Ramya Krishnan and Sathyaraj enacted important characters in the Shobo Yarlagadda-produced flick.last_img read more

Rohingya Another version of Palestine issue

first_imgRohingya refugees wait roadside for aid at Thaingkhali makeshift refugee camp in Cox`s Bazar, on 14 September 2017. Photo: ReutersA Hong Kong-based news website, Asia Times, has painted a Palestine-like refuge scenario in Bangladesh’s southeast corner, in view of no progress in repatriation of Myanmar nationals of Rohingyas.The news site pointed out that when Myanmar security forces launched its now notorious ‘clearance operations’ in western Rakhine state in August 2017, it was not the first time the country’s Rohingya Muslim minority had fled en masse into neighbouring Bangladesh.But, the Asia Times writes, “a failed attempt to repatriate a first group to Myanmar in November and the construction of solid, concrete buildings on an island off the Bangladeshi coast signal an entirely new situation is emerging: a Palestine-like scenario with a permanent, stateless and impoverished refugee population ripe for exploitation by extremist groups in South and Southeast Asia.”More than 720,000 Rohingyas fled Myanmar’s brutal security force crackdown, adding to another few hundred thousand that were already in Bangladesh.The United Nations has indicated the forced expulsion represented crimes against humanity and may have been driven by “genocidal intent,” wrote the site in an article “Asia’s version of Palestine emerging in Bangladesh”.A first batch of 2,200 refugees was supposed to have been repatriated on 15 November, but none agreed to return if their demands for citizenship and justice for the atrocities they had been subjected to were met, the article said.That, of course, was a non-starter as the government in Naypyitaw is highly unlikely to grant the Rohingya, who they consider illegal migrants from Bangladesh, citizenship or accept responsibility for an offensive security officials say was a legitimate response to Rohingya insurgent attacks on border guard posts, the news site observed.It mentioned that Myanmar’s military leaders, now struggling to stay out of the reach of The Hague’s International Criminal Court, where they could potentially face genocide charges for their 2017 crackdown, have not faced any moves domestically to seek justice for the widespread death and destruction.Plans to relocate as many as 100,000 Rohingya refugees to Bangladesh’s Bhasan Char Island would ease pressure on the overcrowded camps on the Myanmar border, but it is unclear how refugees with few skills and no resources would survive on a small, isolated and barren island located in one of the world’s most cyclone-prone areas, the article pointed out.Construction on the island is reportedly proceeding apace, but Rohingya refugees are already reportedly reluctant to move to the island.According to the article, the situation today is in sharp contrast to 1978 and 1991-1992, when hundreds of thousands of Rohingyas similarly fled persecution to Bangladesh. In 1978, the Myanmar government launched an operation code-named Naga Min, or King of Dragons, which aimed at identifying illegal immigrants across the country.Despite reports of rape, arson and murder, the then ruling military got support from even its most vocal domestic critics, who shared the view that the Rohingyas are not indigenous but rather “Bengali settlers” from Bangladesh, the Asia Times article added.An estimated 200,000 Rohingyas fled across the border, but were allowed to return when Myanmar and Bangladesh, after a stream of protests mainly from Islamic countries leading to intervention by the United Nations, reached an agreement in July 1978, it recalled.Many, however, filtered back into Bangladesh when they found that their old homes in Myanmar had been razed and their land had been taken over by new ethnic Burman or Rakhine settlers, the article added.In early 1991, it said, thousands of Rohingyas once again began streaming across the border, bringing with them tales of forcible eviction from their homes, and the destruction of mosques and Islamic schools.By 1992, more than 200,000 refugees were living in makeshift camps across the border in Bangladesh until a repatriation agreement was reached under the auspices of the United Nations, the article further said.During the 1992 crisis, Prince Khaled Sultan Abdul Aziz, commander of the Saudi contingent in the 1991 Gulf War, visited Dhaka and lashed out against the Myanmar government for its persecution of the Rohingyas, the article pointed out.The first was in 1978, when the immensely wealthy Saudi Arabian charity Rabitat-al-Alam-al-Islami sent aid to the refugees and built a hospital, mosque and madrasa for them at Ukhia, south of Cox’s Bazar in southeastern Bangladesh, the article said.It mentioned that several hundred thousand first, second and third generation Rohingyas, many descendants of Muslims who left Myanmar after World War II, live elsewhere in impoverished suburbs.A permanent refugee population in Bangladesh, could have grave implications for the domestic security situation in that country, similar to the volatility seen in Lebanon and other Middle Eastern countries where Palestinian refugees have been languishing for more than half a century, the article said.last_img

Why Mark Zuckerberg Is Excited About an Augmented Reality Future

first_imgApril 18, 2017 Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Globalcenter_img When Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took the stage today to open F8, the social giant’s annual developer conference, he wanted to address the elephant in the room. Another big tentpole event named F8 had already kind of stolen his thunder: the recent premiere of his buddy Vin Diesel’s latest movie, the eight installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise.Moving on to his main focus, Zuckerberg shared with the crowd Facebook’s mission going forward, riffing quite literally on the comprehensive treatise he published in February (he held up a sizable stack of paper that may or may not have been the printed open letter). The Facebook founder said the company’s next steps would be to bring the digital and physical together and to “work on building common ground.”To that end, Facebook’s next technological leap, now that it is the owner of four out of the five most downloaded apps in the world, is to step into the world of augmented reality. But Facebook isn’t the only company with designs on augmented reality.Related: Watch Mark Zuckerberg 3-D-Print a Mini Version of His DogThis week, Snap rolled out an AR feature that lets users add special effects to their photos, in addition to the already popular face mask effects, according to The Wall Street Journal. Other major companies dipping into AR include Microsoft, Google and Apple.Zuckerberg announced that today will see the beta launch of an open AR platform through a new camera function of the app that will allow developers to create their own filters and frames.He also shared what future AR innovations could look like. He offered an example of a still photo that could be transformed into a 3D scene, where the user could pan around, change lighting and add effects such as filling the room with water, bouncing balls or skittles.Related: Watch Mark Zuckerberg Ask Fellow Harvard Dropout Bill Gates for Advice on His Harvard Commencement SpeechZuckerberg spoke about transforming blank walls into street art and how AR could be used to leave notes for friends in specific places, such as marking a table at your favorite bar or leaving a note for your spouse on the refrigerator.“This is going to be an important technology that changes how we use our phones,” Zuckerberg said. “There is a long road map of technology to build for years. I am confident that we are going to push this augmented reality platform forward.” That long road map included creating glasses and eventually contacts to see the world through an augmented reality lens.Meanwhile, the Facebook CEO took a moment to offer his and the company’s condolences to the family of Robert Godwin, Sr., whose alleged killer posted a video of his murder on the social network and then confessed in a live video. Police say the alleged killer, Steve Stephens, took his own life on Tuesday. 3 min readlast_img read more

Why are lesbians the most likely to be biased against bi women

first_imgWhy do gay and lesbians think bisexual people are more attracted to me. | Photo: Gay Star News Photos eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… Published in the Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity journal, researchers found that lesbians perceived bi women as more sexually attracted to men than they are women. This results in ‘more negative attitudes toward bisexual women’ among lesbians than gay men.The purpose of the study was to help reduce ‘bisexual health disparities via improving dynamics within LGBTQ communities’.Bisexual people face some of the highest levels of stigma and discrimination. While the LGBTI community tended to be less discriminatory towards bi people than heterosexual, the bi community still faces a lot of challenges.A recent Pride in London’s survey found that 46% of bisexual people aren’t out to their families, compared to 12% of gay men and 17% of lesbians. The United Nations released a shocking report in July which revealed bi women are more at risk from sexual violence.  About 69% of bi woman respondents said they have been raped or suffered physical violence and/or stalking from a partner. The number for bi men is 37%. GAYSTARNEWS-center_img ‘Androcentric desire hypothesis’Researchers came up with the term ‘androcentric desire hypothesis’ to describe the phenonmenon that gay and lesbian people perceive bisexuals as being more attracted to men.The research suggested gender dynamics play a critical role in how bisexual people are evaluated in LGBTQ communities.‘These results shed light on how and why bisexual individuals may experience prejudice from lesbian and gay people,’ researchers said.Hollywood actor Nico Tortorella recently spoke to Gay Star News about bi-phobia in the LGBTI community. He said most of the criticism he faced about his bisexuality came from gay men.‘Firstly, bi-phobia and bi-erasure’s one of the biggest problems in the community. There’s little to no positive visibility of any sort of bisexual character in TV or film,’‘So many people think being a bisexual is a pitstop to being gay. That’s absolutely not the case for me and so many other bisexuals that I know.‘I’ve dated other bisexuals and I’ve dated straight women and gay men. The most flack I get – and not necessarily flack but just confusion of acceptance – is from, specifically, cis gay men that can’t fathom that I can play in the spectrum of both gender and sexuality.’Got a news tip?

Sisters Paris Hilton left and Nicky Hilton Roths

(Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP) Celebs turn out to help Rihanna’s Diamond Ball shine bright NEW YORK, N.Y. – Rihanna’s Diamond Ball shined in its fourth year and continued to make a name as one of the industry’s white-hot and must-attend parties — all while raising nearly $6 million for charity.The pop star, fashionista and makeup mogul held the black-tie gala for her Clara Lionel Foundation on Thursday in New York City, where Childish Gambino performed and Tiffany Haddish bid $75,000 on earrings.The “Girls Trip” superstar, per usual, was in an electrifying mood at Cipriani Wall Street. When the Chopard earrings were being auctioned, the recent Emmy winner told her competition: “Let me have something in this world.” The earrings were valued at $112,000.Haddish watched Gambino, who performed “This Is America,” ”3005″ and more songs, like a die-hard fan right in front of the stage, even yelling her catch phrase — “she ready” — while the Emmy-winning “Atlanta” actor performed his Grammy-winning soul anthem, “Redbone.”Issa Rae, the Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated creator of HBO’s “Insecure,” hosted the event and happily told the audience: “Rihanna knows my name y’all!”Trevor Noah, Odell Beckham Jr., Brian Tyree Henry, Paris Hilton, Normani, Meek Mill and A$AP Rocky were among the famous faces who attended the event for Rihanna’s organization, which promotes education and arts globally and assists emergency response programs. The 30-year-old singer started the foundation in 2012 and named it after her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite.“In the past I’ve wanted to support so many causes and you go to one foundation for this and one foundation for that. And I don’t think it’s fair to turn your back on someone else who needs help just because it doesn’t fit into the bracket of your mould. And I don’t think charities should be moulded like that— not for me anyways,” she said in an interview with The Associated Press. “Some people, it works for them, but for me personally, I couldn’t sleep knowing that I can’t help someone with AIDS because my charity’s about cancer. Everybody needs help, you don’t even know what that means, it could be schools supplies, it could be something as light as that. But we would always, always reach out and support, so this going to be an ever-growing charity.”The Clara Lionel Foundation, which has supported those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Maria, has set a goal to raise $25 million for an emergency response fund by next year’s Diamond Ball. The organization also has a scholarship fund as well as an oncology and nuclear medicine centre in Barbados, where Rihanna was born and raised.Seth Meyers surprised the audience when he showed up to help with the live auction. Other attendees included Gucci Mane, Teyana Taylor, La La Anthony, Fabolous, Gayle King, Nipsey Hussle, Skylar Diggins, Justine Skye and DJ Mustard, who performed after Gambino.Hugh Evans, the CEO of Global Citizen, received the 2018 Diamond Ball Award.center_img by Mesfin Fekadu, The Associated Press Posted Sep 14, 2018 12:50 am PDT Last Updated Sep 14, 2018 at 2:40 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more

New attraction to take journey into Greek mythology

first_img“Off with their heads, and on with mine!” – or something of the sort – said Roman Emperor Caligula when he demanded that all artistically acclaimed statues of Greek gods, especially the wondrous statue of Zeus at Olympia, be brought from Greece so that their heads could be removed to replace them with his sculpted portrait.Unlucky for him, Caligula was assassinated in 41AD, before his grand plan could be implemented. Unlucky for everyone else, the giant 7m wide and more than 12m tall statue of Zeus, completed by the sculptor Phidias by around 320BC and considered one of the seven wonders of the world, was destroyed several centuries later.It seems that luck is right around the corner however, as the Cyprus-based project Amazing World plans to bring the ancient world with all its richness of history, legend and myth to the 21st century with the main attraction being the recreation of the former wonder of the world.A majestic stone maze park is planned to be completed by June 2019 – less than three years since the team initially sat down and drew up a plan for the project ­in an area between Limassol and Paphos, purposefully away from the overcrowded beaches and deeper into Cyprus’ mountains, which we all know we need more excuses to visit in the hot summer months.Aiming to create a whole new world for tourists and locals of all ages, the project will be brought to reality by a team headed by Mirakhmed Turakulov.“It will be unlike anything that already exists,” Mirakhmed told the Cyprus Mail.“We’re building a vast stone labyrinth, with walls engraved with sculptures taking visitors through the history of Cyprus, from ancient to modern times,” Mirakhmed said. While the project is still raising funds on Indiegogo some of the sculptures have already been completed and preparation of the site has begun.The labyrinth will be surrounded by greenery and waterfalls, creating an oasis which will complement the dreamlike experience of strolling by statues of ancient Greek mythological gods and goddesses scattered outside the labyrinth walls, taking visitors right into the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur.According to the myth, the Minotaur was the son of Pasiphae, wife of King Minos of Crete. Queen Pasiphae slept with a bull sent by Zeus, and gave birth to the Minotaur, a creature half man-half bull. King Minos was embarrassed, but did not want to kill the Minotaur, so he hid the monster in the Labyrinth constructed by Daedalus at the Minoan Palace of Knossos.one of the statues arrivesThe world has many puzzling structures, from the hedges of the Hampton Court maze in London to the meandering velvety cypress trees of Australia’s Ashcombe Maze, keeping the Thesean spirit alive.Historically associated with religious and magical experiences, labyrinths nowadays mostly retain the magical, meditative quality of what is often a personal journey along paths of unknown direction, guided deeper into the structure by the hope of reaching the secrets hidden in the centre.But despite the strange power that draws us to the idea of getting lost in the twists and turns of towering walls, the Amazing World stone maze promises a journey of enlightenment through the stormy history of the island, with the awe-inspiring statue of Zeus awaiting visitors at the heart of the labyrinth.“Our goal is to build a world for the modern day person so they may embark on a journey through time and enrich themselves with culture, art, architecture and the mythological belief of the people from the archaic ancient times,” according to the project’s website.“We’re going to replicate the original statue to the greatest extent possible,” Mirakhmed said, setting expectations for the new park quite high, especially since the original seventh wonder of the world, in addition to being enormous, was also ornamented with ebony, ivory, gold panels and precious stones.While the project also aims towards strengthening the local community  specifically that of villages such as Dora, Fasoula, Mamonia, Maronas, Kidasi – and fostering economic growth and tourism, Mirakhmed stressed that it’s the lack of an immersive and comprehensive educational experience of this kind that motivates him above all.“I’ve been in Cyprus for six years,” he said, “and I still have not found somewhere where you can learn ancient and modern history in an approachable way.”In a way, that’s true.While Cyprus hosts an abundance of ancient archaeological sites and even though the Cyprus Museum exhibits artefacts and from the Neolithic Age to the Byzantine period and various cross-shaped idols from the Chalcolithic period, gold jewellery and statues of gods and goddesses, none of the above are actually fun, as enlightening as they may be.Amazing World plans to keep fun at the centre of learning, with visitors absorbing history and culture while simultaneously being on a quest to find the God of gods in all his glory. For more information and to make a contribution go to www.indiegogo.com/projects/stone-maze-park-and-statue-of-zeus-in-cyprus-adventure#/ or www.amazing-world.euYou May LikeGallery[Gallery] Engaged Couple Risked Everything In Order To Renovate A Mansion, And This Is How It Looks NowGalleryUndoHealthy MixerLiquid Gold: 35 Health Benefits of Natural HoneyHealthy MixerUndoZooCan You Identify All This North American Wildlife?ZooUndo Two of serial killer’s victims buried in PhilippinesUndoNew equipment for Paphos lifeguards but ‘proper’ towers neededUndoRussian opposition leader Navalny hospitalised for allergic reactionUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
