Warship sunk by German sub in WWII finally located

first_imgMaine (US): A private dive team has located the last US Navy warship to be sunk by a German submarine in World War II, just a few kilometres off the coast of Maine. The sinking of the USS Eagle PE-56 on April 23, 1945, was originally blamed on a boiler explosion. But the Navy determined in 2001 that it had been sunk by a German submarine. The patrol boat’s precise location remained a mystery until now. Garry Kozak, a specialist in undersea searches, announced this week that diver Ryan King, of Brentwood, New Hampshire, confirmed in June 2018 that an object Kozak previously discovered on sonar is the vessel 90 metres down. Also Read – US blacklists 28 Chinese entities over abuses in XinjiangKing’s team, which later began working with the Smithsonian Channel, extensively explored the ship on the ocean floor, 8 kilometres off Cape Elizabeth, Maine. “With the deck guns, there was no mistaking it for what it was,” said Paul Lawton, a Massachusetts attorney whose research helped to convince the Navy how the ship was sunk. The patrol boat was equipped with depth charges, explosives used to battle enemy submarines. But it was towing a practice target for bombers from a nearby Brunswick Naval Air Station when it sank.

The underwater video, which will be aired in the fall on the Smithsonian Channel’s “Hunt for Eagle 56,” backs up the story of sailors who said an explosion broke the ship into two pieces, said Kozak, of Derry, New Hampshire. The two hull segments, about 105 metres apart, blended with the uneven, craggy ocean floor, making it difficult to locate them with sonar, Kozak said. Underwater video clearly shows the deck gun on the bow; farther away, depth charges are clearly visible on the stern.last_img read more

Its time Paralyzed Bronco returning to Humboldt for first time since crash

first_imgHUMBOLDT, Sask. – For the first time in 526 days, former Broncos hockey player Ryan Straschnitzki will be back in Humboldt, Sask.The 20-year-old from Airdrie, Alta., was paralyzed from the chest down when a bus carrying Humboldt’s junior hockey team collided with a semi truck on the way to a playoff game on April 6, 2018.Sixteen people died and 13 others, including Straschnitzki, were injured.“I wanted to give myself the right amount of time before returning,” Straschnitzki told The Canadian Press.“It’s time.”His visit coincides with the Broncos hosting the Notre Dame Hounds in their season opener Saturday night. The Humboldt team is also celebrating its 50th anniversary and plans to welcome various alumni.Straschnitzki says returning this weekend seemed like the right opportunity.“I’ve got a lot of mixed feelings about going back. It seems like a long time ago now.”The driver of the semi, Jaskirat Singh Sidhu of Calgary, pleaded guilty to 29 counts of dangerous driving for causing the crash. He was sentenced earlier this year to eight years in prison.Court heard that the rookie driver was distracted by a flapping tarp on the back of his load when he barrelled through a rural stop sign and into the path of the hockey team’s bus.Graysen Cameron of Olds, Alta., fractured a vertebrae in the crash.He took an assistant coaching role last year with the Red Deer Midget AAA Optimist Chiefs, his former team in the Alberta Midget Hockey League before he joined the Broncos. He then had surgery to remove metal rods and screws in his back in an attempt to improve his mobility.The 20-year-old is back playing for the Broncos this season.“I think it’s great that Graysen is back with the Broncos — and he’s been named the captain,” Straschnitzki says.“I spent some time with Graysen in Kelowna over the summer and that’s when I decided to go. I want to be there for him and it will be great to see some of the guys.”Straschnitzki says he also hopes to see fans and meet with billet families.A decision on whether he’ll visit the site of the bus crash near Nipawin, Sask., is still up in the air.“Going to Humboldt is one thing. But whether I will be able to go to the site — might be too difficult,” he says.“Maybe if I were to go with some of the other guys.”While still in hospital after the collision, Straschnitzki decided to take up sledge hockey and has kept himself busy pursuing a spot on Canada’s national sledge hockey team.Earlier this year, he signed a deal with Adidas to participate in its hockey and training campaigns.Follow @BillGraveland on TwitterBill Graveland, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Huawei opens Brussels security lab in bid to reassure EU

BRUSSELS — Chinese tech giant Huawei is opening a cybersecurity lab in Brussels as it tries to win over European leaders in its fight against U.S. allegations that it poses a national security risk.Company executives on Tuesday inaugurated the Huawei European Cybersecurity Center, which will allow customers to review the source code that runs its network gear.Huawei is the world’s biggest maker of telecom infrastructure for new high-speed 5G networks. However, the U.S. has been lobbying allies to shun Huawei because of fears that its equipment could facilitate digital espionage by China’s communist leaders.The new lab gives Huawei a venue to reassure EU policymakers about its cybersecurity credentials.It opened a similar centre in Germany in November and funds a government-run British testing site.Kelvin Chan, The Associated Press read more

Security Council urges protecting women in war empowering them as peacemakers

In a presidential statement adopted after a daylong debate on the issue which saw the participation of more than three dozen speakers – including representatives of countries as well as members of civic groups – the Security Council reaffirmed its commitment to resolution 1325 while acknowledging that more must be done to help women caught in the maelstrom of war.While the original resolution contained no reference to sexual misconduct by peacekeepers, the statement adopted today – reiterating more recent Council declarations – contained strong language condemning the scourge.”The Council expresses its support to the efforts of the United Nations to fully implement codes of conduct and disciplinary procedures to prevent and respond to sexual exploitation and enhance monitoring and enforcement mechanisms,” said Ambassador Mihnea Ioan Motoc of Romania, which currently holds the presidency of the 15-member body.He urged troop-contributing countries to “ensure full accountability in cases of misconduct involving their personnel.”The Council statement voiced deep concern about “persistent obstacles and challenges resulting from situations such as violence against women, shattered economies and social structures, lack of rule of law, poverty, limited access to education and resources, various forms of discrimination and stereotypes.”The President said more must be done to ensure that women play a greater role at the negotiating table and “in developing and implementing post conflict strategies” after the guns have fallen silent.Member States and the Secretary-General were encouraged to maintain regular contacts with local women’s organizations and networks and ensure their involvement in reconstruction, “particularly at the decision-making level,” the President said.Looking to the establishment of a UN Peacebuilding Commission called for by last month’s World Summit in New York, the Council said the new intergovernmental body should focus on the contributions women can make to consolidating peace.The Council statement requested the Secretary-General to ensure that all peace accords concluded with UN assistance “address the specific effects of armed conflict on women and girls, as well as their specific needs and priorities in the post-conflict context.”Speaking at the outset of the meeting, UN Deputy Secretary-General Louise Fréchette stressed that five years after the adoption of the resolution, women still have not won the place they deserve, and called on governments to redouble their efforts to bring women into the political and development process.”Women are still not adequately represented at the negotiating table, the cabinet table and the conference table,” she said. To attain resolution 1325’s goal of ensuring that women are represented at all decision-making levels requires a more systematic approach to consulting with women in the earliest stages of the peace process, including in discussions on constitutional development, judicial reform and reconciliation, she added.As a further practical step towards ensuring that all parts of the UN system play their role in implementing the resolution, Ms. Fréchette referred to the 10 October system-wide action plan on women, peace and security presented by Secretary-General Kofi Annan, and urged the Security Council to find better ways to empower women, share good practices, and enhance women’s role in decision-making at all levels. That plan was welcomed in today’s statement.Jean-Marie Guéhenno, the Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping, shared examples of progress in the protection of women and in their involvement in the peacekeeping in Liberia, Burundi, Timor-Leste, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Côte D’Ivoire. He noted in particular work that supported the integration of gender perspectives in the judicial and legal sectors, and increased political participation of women in Afghanistan and Timor-Leste.But he said major challenges remain, including stopping the shameful engagement of some peacekeepers in sexual exploitation. While many steps were being taken to address that problem, Mr. Guéhenno stressed that abuse could not be ultimately prevented without empowering women and girls through gender mainstreaming. He also noted that the UN peacekeeping department had made limited progress in placing women in senior positions, but that this was one his priorities for the year to come. read more

Football 5 plays that mattered in Ohio States 6214 win against Maryland

Sophomore wide receiver Binjimen Victor (9) runs the ball during the Ohio State game against Maryland on Oct. 7 at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeye won 62-14. Credit: Sheridan Hendrix | Oller ReporterNo. 9 Ohio State trounced Maryland 62-14 Saturday in Ohio Stadium. Though the Buckeyes had the game in hand by halftime, there were several plays that were particularly important in the moment.Here’s the five plays that mattered most in Ohio State’s victory against Maryland.Johnnie Dixon 35-yard gainOn its first drive with 12:49 on the clock in the first quarter, Ohio State faced a third-and-4 at the Maryland 44-yard line. Quarterback J.T. Barrett fired a strike past two Maryland defenders to redshirt junior wide receiver Johnnie Dixon for a first down, and Dixon ran down the field to the 9-yard line.Ohio State scored three plays later on a Barrett rush. Third-down conversions like that will become more crucial with an increasingly difficult level of competition in the coming weeks.Victor first-quarter TDBarrett’s confidence in his arm and receivers has notably improved since Ohio State’s Week 2 loss to Oklahoma. One of his best passes of the day was a third-and-6 strike to sophomore wide receiver Binjimen Victor in the end zone with 7:14 remaining in the first quarter.On a skinny post route, the 6-foot-4 Victor fought off a cornerback to reel in the throw, which Barrett fit into a tight window from 8 yards. With his frame, Victor is the ideal target for third-down passing situations close to the end zone. If Barrett can fit those throws in there consistently, Ohio State’s offense will continue to find success.Jerome Baker scoop-and-scoreOhio State’s defensive line had arguably its best game against Maryland, and it started early with 9:54 on the clock in the first quarter.On Maryland’s third play from scrimmage, defensive end Nick Bosa drove Maryland quarterback Max Bortenschlager to the ground and caused a fumble. Linebacker Jerome Baker picked it up and took it to the end for an early 13-0 lead.Baker’s 4th-down sackThe Ohio State offense sputtered in three straight drives — a blocked field goal, a J.K. Dobbins fumble and a 22-yard punt — before Baker made a crucial stop at 6:30 left in the first half.Maryland’s offense stayed on the field for a fourth-and-3 at the 30-yard line. Baker came untouched on the right side of the line to sack Bortenschlager, forcing a fumble in the process and giving the offense some momentum for its next three drives, which all ended in touchdowns.Hubbard stop and third-and-1Leading 27-7 with 4:15 remaining in the first half, Ohio State continued its dominance on the offensive line with a tackle for loss on third-and-1. Maryland running back Ty Johnson had no room to run up the middle, so he attempted to bounce outside where defensive end Sam Hubbard played contain and cut down Johnson in the backfield for a 6-yard loss, forcing fourth down. Ohio State marched 48 yards in four plays, taking all of 52 seconds for another score. read more

Bangladesh moving ahead for its friendly ties with all PM

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina addresses a civic reception at Beijing on Wednesday. Photo: UNBNoting that Bangladesh has friendly relations with all, prime minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday said Bangladesh is marching forward and getting foreign investment as the country has no hostility to anyone.”We’ve friendly relations with all. Now, Bangladesh has no hostile relation with anyone as it follows the foreign policy adopted by Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman….this is why Bangladesh is marching forward and receiving investment,” she said referring to Bangladesh’s friendly relations with both China and India.The prime minister made the remarks while addressing a civic reception accorded to her at Legendale Hotel here.Expatriate Bangladeshis hosted the reception under the supervision of Bangladesh embassy in Beijing on the occasion of the prime minister’s bilateral official visit to China.Sheikh Hasina said Bangladesh has moving forward following the policy – ‘Friendship to all and malice to none’, which had been taken by the Father of the Nation.”If there’s any stable government and democratic environment, it can attract investment,” she said, adding that her government is setting up 100 special economic zones in the country.Noting that China turned into the world’s 2nd largest economy from a poor one in the last 70 years, the prime minister urged expatriate Bangladeshis to learn from the China’s history and development.She said China still faces obstacles as many will not want to see a country from this region or Asia to be the largest economy in the world.Mentioning that Bangabandhu had been taking the country forward with 7 per cent GDP growth by building a war-ravaged country within only three and a half years, she said the anti-liberation forces hindered the development journey of the country.Though the killers of the Father of the Nation were tried, those who had been behind the killing and its conspirators are yet to be identified, Sheikh Hasina, also the eldest daughter of Bangabandhu, said.She said time will come when the true facts (behind the killing) come to the fore.About the country’s development in the last one decade, Sheikh Hasina said the country’s GDP growth is now 8.10 per cent and her government passed the Tk 5231.90 billion budget for 2019-20 fiscal year recently.Criticising the anti-liberation forces, she said those who had not wanted the independence of Bangladesh and kept the country crippled never find anything good of the government.There is still a class of people in the country who are blind and who do not like democratic environment as they are evaluated during the period of martial law or emergency period or illegal regimes, not in a democratic environment, the prime minister said. “They always remain ready to sell themselves.”Noting that this class of people was in power for 29 years, she said, “We did the development in the 10 years what they didn’t do in the 29 years.”Sheikh Hasina said the government has taken development projects of some Tk 2000 billion for the current fiscal year and 90 per cent of the country’s development budget is implemented with own finance. “The share of foreign donation is 0.8 per cent in the country’s budget,” she added.She urged the expatriate Bangladeshis to work for the country coming up with innovative ideas.Foreign minister AK Abdul Momen also spoke at the event conducted by Bangladesh ambassador to China Md Fazlul Karim. Among expatriate Bangladeshis, Engineer Shamsul Haque spoke on the occasion.The prime minister arrived in Beijingon Wednesday morning after joining the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Annual Meeting of New Champions, 2019 held in Dalian city.Sheikh Hasina departed from Dhaka for China on 1 July and is scheduled to leave here for Dhaka on 6 July.last_img read more

How to enable AV1 support on YouTube

first_imgHow to enable AV1 support on YouTube by Martin Brinkmann on September 13, 2018 in Music and Video – Last Update: June 13, 2019 – 37 commentsAV1 is a new media codec that is being integrated into various web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome at the moment. The codec is developed by a consortium of companies and positioned as a royalty-free alternative to the non open codecs H.264 and H.265.Av1 promises smaller file sizes without impacting the quality of the video stream.Google published a test playlist of AV1 encoded and supporting videos on the YouTube website recently. The core idea behind the playlist is to give developers and users options to test the functionality, performance, and other metrics of AV1 encoded videos on the YouTube site.AV1 support is limited at the time of writing and preparations are in order to add support at this point in time. Chrome users need to run at least version 70 of the web browser, Firefox users at least version 63 of the browser.Firefox users need to modify a preference in the browser as well to enable Av1 support; this is done by loading about:config?filter=media.av1.enabled in the browser’s address bar and flipping the preference to True with a double-click on the preference name.Note that YouTube may display the “you need” instructions for Firefox even if you have set the preference to True already.Mozilla Firefox supports AV1 by default in all supported versions of the web browser.Load the Testtube page on YouTube afterward to enable support for AV1. Scroll down on the page until you come to the Av1 section on it.The AV1 video codec provides advanced compression, bringing you smoother streaming in HD and data savings for more video on the go.Because it is new, streaming AV1 in HD requires a powerful computer, and only some videos have AV1 available at this time. Choosing to stream AV1 in SD will use AV1 up to 480p, and VP9 for higher formats.The default setting is Auto but you may switch it to “Prefer AV1 for SD” or “Always Prefer AV1”. Note that Av1 playback requires a computer that is more powerful when compared to previous codecs that YouTube uses right now to stream videos to user devices.The main difference between the two options is that “Always Prefer AV1” uses the codec if it is available for a video whereas “Prefer AV1 for SD” limits the selection to SD videos. The main idea behind the two options is to avoid putting low performance devices to the limit when AV1 videos are played on YouTube.You could select “Always Prefer AV1” and see how well your device performs when you play videos on YouTube that support AV1. If playback is choppy or pushing the resources to a high level, you’d want to consider selecting “prefer Av1 for SD” instead which limits AV1 codec playback to 480p and lower resolution videos.Once you have made the selection you may point your browser to the AV1 test playlist on YouTube to start playback of videos that support the codec.You probably wonder how to find out if a video uses the AV1 codec or another for playback. You can find that out by right-clicking on the video and selecting the Stats for Nerds entry of the context menu.Check the Codecs listing; if you see av01 there AV1 codec is used.Now You: Is AV1 support something that gets you excited?SummaryArticle NameHow to enable AV1 support on YouTubeDescriptionFind out how to enable AV1 codec support on YouTube in Firefox 63 and Chrome 70 or newer right now to use the new codec on the video site.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

I am delighted to see that this strategy is paying off and we welcome Jetlines with enthusiasm.”The signing of YQB is just the latest in Jetlines’ rollout of developments leading up to its launch.

Since that time, we’ve carried more than 2 million passengers to and from the sunshine state.“This new route to Brisbane will not only increase traffic between Thailand and Queensland, but importantly provide guests with a low-cost option to explore Bangkok and the more than 130 destinations found in AirAsia’s network.“We look forward to working with Brisbane Airport, the Queensland Government and the local tourism industry to make these new services a success.Gert-Jan de Graaff, BAC Chief Executive Officer, said, “With Brisbane’s new runway opening in 18 short months, the decision by AirAsia to bring its first-ever aircraft from the low-cost hub, Don Muang International Airport in Bangkok to Brisbane was a prudent move.“Thailand is an aspirational destination for Australians and one of Brisbane Airport’s largest underserved markets, so AirAsia’s quality low fare flight options direct into the heart of Bangkok is sure to be very popular with travellers.“We are excited to welcome AirAsia to the Brisbane Airport family and look forward to supporting and contributing to the success of these services.”Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) secured the services with Queensland Government support under the Attracting Aviation Investment Fund (AAIF), along with partners Tourism and Events Queensland and Brisbane Marketing.Tourism Industry Development Minister Kate Jones said the new service, supported through the Attracting Aviation Investment Fund, in partnership with Brisbane Airport Corporation and Brisbane Marketing, will fly four times-a-week and attract close to 25,000 visitors every year.“This new route will help to open up Asia and improve connectivity for visitors from key Eastern markets,” Ms Jones said.“This is a great opportunity to attract visitors from other destinations across Asia, with potential to improve access to Queensland for Indian and Chinese tourists connecting via AirAsia’s extensive international network and hub in Bangkok.“It will also help to boost visitation from Thailand, one of Queensland’s emerging markets with great potential for growth.“Over the past year Queensland welcomed 19,000 travellers from Thailand who spent $44 million. We expect to welcome more Thai visitors travelling on this route allowing us to grow this base.“Continuing to increase aviation access and provide travellers with another entry point to Australia is a key strategy in the Palaszczuk Government’s plan to grow Queensland’s tourism industry.“Since Labor won government in 2015, we’ve secured about 2.4 million extra airline seats worth around $1.8 billion for Queensland. That’s because we’re committed to creating more tourism jobs in our state.”The Lord Mayor of Brisbane, Graham Quirk said attracting AirAsia to Brisbane was a major coup for the city.“The new services will give us the opportunity to attract more visitors from Asian markets and help our city develop closer business ties with the region.“Our New World City has a clear focus on engaging with the Asia-Pacific region and the new AirAsia services will reinforce that.”To celebrate the milestone, AirAsia has launched special sale fares from Brisbane to Bangkok starting at just AUD$239*.The inaugural AirAsia flight XJ310 from Bangkok.
