Vivo Nex Vs Oppo Find X: All-screen and no-bezel nirvana

first_imgOppo and Vivo have launched their crazy futuristic phones, the Find X and the Nex, in India at Rs 44,990 and Rs 59,990 respectively. Oppo and Vivo are sister brands, but, their way of approaching the all-screen and no-bezel smartphone design is like chalk and cheese. Both the phones may be based on the same guiding principle — to achieve all-screen and no-bezel nirvana — but the Find X and the Nex are two very different phones which makes them all the more exciting.While the Nex has only a pop-out front camera, in the Find X, both the front and rear cameras pop out in one go. The idea is to get rid of the bezel, and also the notch: offering more real estate than any other phone in the market right now. The Find X, of course, takes things even further by ditching the fingerprint scanner to reach its goal. While the Nex brings along a rather unconventional in-display fingerprint scanner. Among other things. Clearly, both the Nex and the Find X, have may stand out features that make them stand out from one another and from the rest of the competition. While we’ve already reviewed the Nex and found to it to be quite impressive with regards to its sci-fi tech, the Find X will take some more time for us to come to a final conclusion. We will be comparing both the phones at length in the days to come, but before that, here’s a quick walk-through of the Find X and the Nex to understand all the differences between the two phones.advertisement1.Both the Nex and the Find X have an all-glass front and back. Both the phones have dual rear cameras and a single front shooter. The Nex sports a third-generation in-display fingerprint scanner that’s said to be faster and more accurate than the one we saw on the recently launched Vivo X21. The Find X, on the other hand, does not have a fingerprint scanner. Instead it supports 3D facial recognition for biometric authentication. The 3D facial recognition technology on-board the Oppo Find X uses a system that’s pretty similar to the one found on the iPhone X. It consists of a dot projector, an infrared camera and a flood illuminator that apparently makes O-Face (that’s what Oppo calls its system) a whole lot secure and faster than conventional mechanisms. Also, it works in the dark, according to Oppo.2.The Find X does not ship with conventional cameras. Instead it features a motorised system that pops out every time you need the cameras, or face unlock. Oppo calls it Stealth 3D camera system. The system is similar to the pop-out system found on the Vivo Nex, only in the case of the Find X, it involves both the front and rear cameras that sit nestled inside the glass sandwich and pop out only when you want them to. Oppo says that the system can pop out in just 0.5 seconds which is pretty nice, although it must be noted, that such a system that is dependant on moving parts would be prone to wear and tear over time. Oppo claims that the system can be used for roughly 300,000 times, which should get most users over 5 years of usage from the Find X. In the case of the Nex, only the front camera is part of the pop-out mechanism. Vivo says that it can be used hassle-free about 50,000 times and also it can withstand up to 500-grams of weight.3.The Find X offers more real estate than the Nex, at least on paper. The Find X. for your reference, has a whopping 93.8 per cent screen-to-body ratio while the Nex offers 91.24 per cent screen-to-body ratio.4.The Nex has a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Find X does not have an audio jack which means the same USB Type-C port will have to be used for charging, data syncing and audio out.5.The Find X comes with a 6.4-inch 1080p+ OLED display while the Nex has a 6.59-inch 1080p+ Super AMOLED display.6.Both the phones are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor clubbed with 8GB RAM. While the Find X comes with 256GB storage the Nex comes with 128GB storage. Expandable storage isn’t supported by both the phones.7.The Find X sports a dual camera system on the rear consisting of one 16MP camera and another 20MP shooter. There’s OIS and also lots and lots of AI on-board. The Nex’s dual rear camera system consists of one 12-megapixel sensor and another 5-megapixel sensor for depth sensing. There’s OIS on-board here as well.advertisement8.While the Find X has a 25-megapixel front camera, the Nex comes with a rather paltry 8-megapixel front camera.9.Both the phones run Android 8.1 Oreo with custom skins on top. Oppo’s custom skin is called Color OS while Vivo’s custom skin is called Funtouch OS.10.The Find X is backed by a 3,730mAh battery with support for VOOC fast charging. The Nex has a bigger 4,000mAh battery. Also it supports fast charging.11.Oppo has launched the Find X in India for Rs 59,990 and it will be available in Glacier Blue and Bordeaux Red options starting from August 3 from Flipkart and across offline stores in India. The Vivo Nex has been launched in India at a price of Rs 44,990 and will be available for buying from Amazon India and Vivo’s online store from July 21. The Nex will also be available for buying from physical retail stores.ALSO READ: Vivo Nex phone review: Look ma, no bezelslast_img read more

CoA’s decision to debar TNCA and other affliated units arbitrary and wrong: Former BCCI lawyer

Even the General Body of BCCI cannot do so,” Banerjee told PTI.”As on date the Apex Court has not passed any order to the effect that if any state association’s amended Constitution appears to be ‘non-compliant’, as felt by the CoA, such association shall be debarred from attending BCCI AGM and exercise powers of Full Member.”Therefore, the decision of the CoA, as reported, is utterly arbitrary and wrong. They are not vested with any judicial power. Either they are not properly advised or they are presuming to have illusory powers akin to the Apex Court and abusing their role,” he added.advertisementHe further said the CoA is not empowered to take any decision contrary to the Constitution and/or the orders so passed by the Supreme Court.”While, it is true that Apex Court has passed series of decisions, which in some issues are contradictory and even not in consonance with the current Constitution, but the CoA is not empowered to take any decision contrary to the Constitution and/or the orders so passed by the Hon’ble Court.”Also Read | India vs South Africa: Mayank Agarwal bullies South Africa with 2nd successive hundredAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Indigenous man questions expulsion from restaurant after racist encounter

first_imgRED DEER, Alta. – A McDonald’s restaurant in central Alberta is reaching out to an Indigenous man to tell him he’s welcome there after he was ordered to leave following a racist and profanity-laced encounter with another customer.Zach Running Coyote, who is from Rosebud, Alta., says he was eating in the Red Deer restaurant on Friday night when a story appeared on television about charges being dropped against a rancher who had been accused of shooting at trespassers.The 22-year-old says a man who was with a woman saw the story, described the ruling as a victory for Canada and said that if someone came on his property he would shoot them dead.Running Coyote says he shook his head upon hearing the comment, which prompted the man to swear at him, tell him to mind his own business and say that he was a know-it-all Indian.Running Coyote verbally confronted him in the restaurant and again in the parking lot before going back inside, where he says he apologized to staff, but was told by a manager to leave for trying to start a fight.Bob Carpenter, the franchisee for McDonald’s Red Deer, says in an emailed statement that the situation was disappointing on many levels, but is being used as a learning experience for restaurant staff.Running Coyote, who is an actor, is performing in Red Deer’s annual Shakespearean production called Bard on Bower. He says he told the man that if he was going to make a racial slur that he should say it to his face, but the man and his companion sneered and swore at him again as they left the restaurant.Running Coyote says once they were all outside he yelled: “Hey dude. Thanks for your opinion. It means a lot to me. That really helps me in life.”He says the man responded by saying he was sick of Running Coyote’s people “mooching” off tax dollars and living on welfare. He then hurled more profanity as he sped away.In a message posted on Facebook, Running Coyote says, “I hate you, Canada, for teaching people to treat me this way” and asks why he was told to leave the restaurant when the other customer was not.He also told Red Deer media outlet rdnewsNOW that there’s nothing he would have done differently that night.Carpenter said in his statement that he prides himself on creating and maintaining a diverse and accepting environment for all customers and employees.“Discrimination of any kind, including racist taunts, is simply not tolerated in my restaurants,” he said. “I am using this situation to reiterate to all my restaurant managers and crew the importance of maintaining a safe and welcoming environment.”(rdnewsNOW)last_img read more

Montreals new Samuel De Champlain bridge fully open as old bridge retires

first_imgMontreal’s new Samuel De Champlain Bridge fully opened to traffic in both directions on Monday, while its predecessor was officially retired after 57 years of service.The bridge’s southbound lanes were opened to traffic at 11 a.m. — one week after it opened to traffic heading north to Montreal across the St. Lawrence.The new 3.4-kilometre span that crosses the Saint Lawrence River and connects the city with its suburbs on the south shore, has three lanes in each direction, a space to accommodate a future light-rail system, plus a path for cyclists and pedestrians set to open later this year.The new bridge was originally to open last December but delays pushed back the opening and added another $235 million to the original $4.2 billion price tag.The elegant, modern structure is a striking contrast to its crumbling counterpart, long one of Canada’s busiest spans.On Monday, a parade of three cars from 1962 — the year of the bridge’s construction — took a last trip across the old span to mark its retirement.Sandra Martel, the interim CEO of the group that manages the bridge, noted the efforts that were made in recent years to keep the disintegrating bridge running.They included an emergency operation to install a 75-tonne superbeam to stabilize one of the bridge’s girders when a crack was discovered in 2013, as well as 24/7 monitoring and countless lane closures and repairs.“With approximately 50 million trips per year and $20 billion in goods passing over it annually, no effort was spared to make sure one of the busiest bridges in Canada remained operational and safe,” she said in a press conference atop the old bridge.Deconstruction work on the old Champlain bridge is set to begin next year. It will take about three years to dismantle at an estimated cost of $400 million.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

One beast of a storm Dorian knocks out power to record number

first_imgHALIFAX – ‘It impacted more customers than any storm in Nova Scotia Power’s history,’ says the Nova Scotia Power spokesperson Andrea Anderson.Now that the winds have died down, crews are out in full force assessing damage and restoring electricity.Utility spokesperson Andrea Anderson described Dorian as “one beast of a storm” and says it set a record.“It impacted more customers than any storm in Nova Scotia Power’s history,” she tells NEWS 95.7’s The Todd Veinotte Show. “At the peak of the storm, there were over 400,000 of our customers without power.”As of 9:15 a.m. Sunday 378,735 customers are still in the dark.Nova Scotia Power is in the process of bringing in an additional 400 crews to add to the around 1,000 personnel they already have in place. Some are coming from as far away as Maine and Florida.“There’s a lot of flooding, there’s uprooted trees, there’s broken poles and downed power lines across the province,” says Anderson. “We’re working really hard to assess the damage, to start fixing and hoping to restore our customers as soon as it’s possible.”Four helicopters have been deployed to help give them a better idea of just how bad it is.Anderson says that will help them establish more accurate estimated restoration times.“We know it’s frustrating for people to be without power, and we’re doing our very best to get it back up again,” she says.last_img read more

President slams Enriques Colombo concert

Enrique Iglesias performed at the CR & FC grounds as part of his ‘Sex and Love’ world tour. (Colombo Gazette) President Maithripala Sirisena today slammed the organizers of the Enrique Iglesias concert staged in Colombo saying it had a negative impact on local culture and tradition.Speaking at an event in Ampara, the President noted that the December 20th (2015) concert saw some girls removing their undergarments and throwing it towards the singer while one girl got on stage and kissed him. The President noted his displeasure at liqueur being served free to those who purchased the most expensive tickets. Tickets were sold at between Rs, 5000 and Rs. 35,000 for the concert but fans who purchased the Rs. 35,000 tickets were unhappy at the facilities provided to them. President Sirisena accused local authorities of failing to make proper inquiries before the concert was given approval and insisted that in future he will take measures to ensure such events are not approved.“I need to say these things. As a Sinhalese Buddhist I cannot refrain from expressing my views. I will speak out when our traditions and culture is harmed,” he said. The President said that usually people will punish the girls for their behavior at the concert but he feels the punishment should be given to the organizers.Sirisena said that some people organise events for the sake of making money but fail to understand not everything is about the money.Live Events Sri Lanka headed by former top cricketers Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardena organised the Enrique Iglesias concert in Sri Lanka, the biggest chart topping star to perform in Sri Lanka so far.

Switch to unleaded fuel in Africa within sight UN environment agency reports

The results of the research, to be presented to the UN agency’s Governing Council when it meets in February, indicates that four countries – Egypt, Libya, Mauritius and Sudan – are already fully lead-free and four others are soon to join them. Another 22 countries are in the process of drawing up plans to phase out lead in gas.Plans are under way to bring the remaining countries on board, many of which are in Central Africa, in order to deliver the goal of a lead-free continent and a lead free world, UNEP said. “It has been known for many years that lead in petrol or gasoline is a serious health risk particularly to children,” UNEP Executive Director Klaus Toepfer said. “But much of Africa, mainly for technological reasons, a lack of awareness of the health risks and misconceptions about the impact of unleaded fuels on engines, has lagged behind.”The effort is one of first concrete outcomes of the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) held six months ago in Johannesburg, South Africa. The voluntary initiative, a so-called Type II project, was born there with funding and support from Governments, the private sector, including the oil and automobile industries, civil society and international organizations like UNEP. “Let us hope that the success being achieved bodes well for the other Type II voluntary partnerships in areas ranging from coral reefs to environmental law,” Mr. Toepfer said.The UNEP chief announced that, as a small but symbolic push toward the lead-free goal, the on-site filling station at the United Nations headquarters in Nairobi, which currently sells both leaded and unleaded petrol, will only sell unleaded fuel. read more

Tea party gains voice in Trumps Cabinet with budget chief

Tea party gains voice in Trump’s Cabinet with budget chief FILE – In this Jan. 24, 2017 file photo, Budget Director-designate Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C. testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington at his confirmation hearing before the Senate Budget Committee. Mulvaney has cleared a routine Senate hurdle. But at least two senior Republicans have voiced doubts about supporting him in a Thursday, Feb. 15, 2017, confirmation vote. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File) by Andrew Taylor, The Associated Press Posted Feb 15, 2017 7:33 pm MDT Last Updated Feb 16, 2017 at 6:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – The tea party wing of the GOP gained a voice in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet on Thursday when Mick Mulvaney was sworn in as director of the White House budget office.Vice-President Mike Pence administered the oath of office hours after the Senate confirmed the South Carolina Republican’s nomination on a narrow 51-49 vote in the GOP-controlled Senate.Pence praised Mulvaney’s “extraordinary record” and said he “couldn’t be more enthusiastic” about Trump’s decision to choose him.Not all Republicans shared Pence’s sentiments.Arizona Sen. John McCain, who is emerging as perhaps the most vocal GOP critic of the Trump administration, opposed the former congressman based on his past House votes supporting cuts to Pentagon spending.“Mulvaney has spent his last six years in the House of Representatives pitting the national debt against our military,” said McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.Senators also gave a tentative 54-46 procedural green light to Trump’s choice to run the Environmental Protection Agency, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt. It was a signal that Pruitt should sail through on a final vote scheduled for Friday, despite being opposed by Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a GOP moderate.Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, two of the party’s more moderate members, backed Pruitt.Trump has tapped some of the wealthiest Americans to serve in his Cabinet and ethics reviews have slowed the confirmation process. So have Senate Democrats who have mostly opposed all the nominees and forced hours of debate.Trump lashed out a Senate Democrats during a White House news conference Thursday, saying he has worked to build a Cabinet over their “delays and obstruction … You’ve seen what they’ve done over the last long number of years.”In fact, Democrats pushed to secure confirmation of President Barack Obama’s picks the past eight years.Mulvaney’s vote means that 13 out of 22 Trump Cabinet or Cabinet-level picks have been confirmed. Nominees to key Cabinet departments such as Interior, Housing and Urban Development, and Energy await confirmation.Mulvaney’s confirmation promises to accelerate work on Trump’s upcoming budget plan, which is overdue. That’s typical at the beginning of an administration. But there is also the need to complete more than $1 trillion in unfinished spending bills for the current budget year, as well as transmit Trump’s request for a quick start on his oft-promised U.S.-Mexico border wall and tens of billions of dollars in emergency cash for the military.In the past, Mulvaney has routinely opposed catchall appropriations bills, which required Republicans to compromise with the Obama White House. The upcoming measure is also going to require deals with Democrats.Mulvaney brings strong conservative credentials to the job, and he’s likely to seek big cuts to longtime GOP targets such as the EPA and other domestic programs whose budgets are set each year by Congress.Trump has indicated, however, that he’s not interested in tackling highly popular benefit programs such as Social Security and Medicare and wants a major investment in highways and other public works. The House Freedom Caucus, a group of the most conservative lawmakers on Capitol Hill, issued a statement saying that the president’s pick of Mulvaney “sends a strong message that the Trump administration is serious about tackling our national debt.”Democrats opposed Mulvaney over his support for curbing the growth of Medicare and Social Security and other issues, such as his brinksmanship as a freshman lawmaker during the 2011 debt crisis in which the government came uncomfortably close to defaulting on its obligations.“He said to me in a one-on-one meeting how he would prioritize the debts he would pay if he defaulted on the debt,” said Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo. “Wouldn’t that be a great addition to the chaos we are all feeling right now?”The vote came a day after Trump’s pick to head the Labor Department, Andrew Puzder, abruptly withdrew his nomination in the face of Republican opposition. Puzder was met with questions over taxes he belatedly paid on a former housekeeper not authorized to work in the United States.Mulvaney has managed to survive questions about his failure to pay more than $15,000 in payroll taxes for a nanny more than decade ago. He has since paid the taxes. read more

Central Remedial Clinic board of governors resigned after HSE request

first_img‘No resignations until investigation’The chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, John McGuinness, said yesterday that these top executives at the Clinic should not resign until an investigation into its pay practices is complete.Reacting to this evening’s resignations, he said they were “inevitable” due to “public pressure on the board”, and hoped for their continued co-operation:I think it is important to say the former members of the board have a duty of care to the CRC and I hope they will co-operate with the work of the Public Accounts Committee until this matter is fully resolved.He urged the public’s continued support to charities who rely on donations heavily at this time of year, and who have been affected by a “huge backlash… in light of the revelations of top-up payments at the CRC”.The resignations follow Directors David Martin and Jim Nugent, and former CEO Paul Kiely, appearing before the Public Accounts Committee earlier this week to discuss revelations that salary top-ups at the Clinic were paid using charitable donationsThese funds were originally donated to the registered charity “Friends and Supporters of the Central Remedial Clinic”.‘Contractually bound’The lengthy meeting revealed that the CRC was ‘contractually bound’ to top up the salaries of some staff.Ahead of the meeting on Monday, Chief Executive Brian Conlan resigned.Conlan himself did not receive any salary top-ups but his predecessor Paul Kiely got a top-up of €135,000 on top of a basic salary of €116,000.Originally published 4.49pmRead: 7 things we learned from the CRC’s grilling by the PAC > Updated at 18.29pmALL MEMBERS OF the board of governors at the Central Remedial Clinic have resigned at the request of the HSE.In a statement this evening, the Clinic said that that members who were directors of the Friends and Supporters of CRC, CRC Medical Devices, or The Care Trust have also resigned.All resignations are with immediate effect.It follows a meeting yesterday the HSE, where it was requested the dissolution of the current board at the CRC and any members of associated subsidiaries as part of an aim to restore confidence in the clinic.In the Executive’s own statement, it said an administrator has been appointed to ‘oversee the work of the CRC and for leading the introduction of new governance arrangements for CRC and its associated subsidiaries’.A new CEO will be appointed through the Public Appointments Service, the HSE said.The CRC’s statement also reaffirms the Clinic’s aim to remain open, saying:[…] The work of the dedicated staff and supporters of the Central Remedial Clinic to sustain, support, develop and protect the volume, quality and reliability of the services available to people with disabilities in Ireland deserves to continue as it has for more than six decades.last_img read more

Retailers cut PS Vita 3G price by 20 percent in Japan

first_imgSales of the PS Vita following a healthy launch week have been worrying for Sony and retailers alike. Week one, Sony shifted 324,859 units. Week two, that dropped to just 72,479 units, which is actually less than the PSP sold during the same period.As you’d expect, sales of the more expensive 3G edition of the Vita have been significantly lower than the cheaper Wi-Fi-only model. But because the Vita isn’t flying off the shelves, several Japanese retailers are already starting to discount the price of the 3G model. It’s no small discount, either. Where as the official price of the PS Vita 3G is 29,980 yen, you can now pick one up for just 24,999 yen as the advert below shows. That’s 17% knocked off the price after just three weeks on sale, and apparently the discounts go as high as 20% if you shop around. It also means the 3G model is only an extra 1,000 yen ($13) or so more than the Wi-Fi model.Although a 20% discount may make the Vita 3G tempting, there’s another charge you need to consider as a data plan will be required. If you can afford that, or at least see the discounted hardware as a way of making a data plan affordable, it’s worth the investment.It’s unlikely lower pricing in Japan will have any impact on the launch price of the Vita in Western markets. We should still expect to pay $249.99 for the Wi-Fi model and $299.99 for the 3G. Saying that, Sony may need to have a rethink considering a 3DS now costs $180 and an iPod touch can be picked up for $199.More at Play Front (translated) and Gamesradarlast_img read more

Many think were wrong to leave the Dáil others want us to

first_img 121 Comments ‘Many think we’re wrong to leave the Dáil, others want us to f**k off out of here’ – Mick Wallace “If people of the far-right want to run, that is there prerogative – I am not of that ilk,” he said. IN THE SAME week as Independent TD Mick Wallace called the National Children’s Hospital  “a fucking joke”, he also announced he is running in the European elections.The Wexford TD said he and fellow Independents 4 Change TD Clare Daly were in “two minds” for the last five or six weeks about whether to run.But both have decided to throw their hats in the ring. As one of the more vocal TDs in the Dáil, Wallace has raised concerns about the government proceeding with the children’s hospital build, NAMA, garda whistleblowers and various international issues. While he often gets into tetchy back-and-forths with the Taoiseach, often questioning who is advising him, Leo Varadkar told this week that he is a bit of a fan of both Wallace and Daly.He said they are both serious politicians, and he might even throw them a vote (his Fine Gael colleagues might wonder about such comments). Whether a thumbs up from the Taoiseach will do damage or good to Wallace in the polls, the TD told this website that he is still unsure as to whether running is the right decision. A seat in EuropeIf we don’t do this now we will always wonder if we should have done it,” he said, stating that it was “very difficult to know how we will get on… many think we are wrong to leave the Dáil, others are glad to see us go, and want us to fuck off out of here.“In 2011, when I ran as an independent the biggest thing said to me was that I would be lost in the Dáil as an independent, but Clare Daly and myself argue that we have been the main pillar of the opposition,” said Wallace.  TDs Mick Wallace and Clare Daly arriving at the Disclosures Tribunal last year. Source: Leah FarrellIf that is the case, who will replace the opposition?He doesn’t know, but said he believes he has been “most effective in the Dáil”.“We take very serious the issues that we have raised in the Dáil, we’ve done our best, people can judge how well we did,” he added, stating that there are a lot of “games” played in the Irish parliament. “We never play games,” he said, something the Taoiseach agreed with this week, stating that Wallace never gets into “point scoring”.  Wallace admits there is a “mixed bag” of candidates running in the European elections in May, acknowledging that not all are from the same views and opinions as himself. Far-right candidates“If people of the far-right want to run, that is their prerogative – I am not of that ilk,” he said. He raised concerns about the “distasteful commentary” surrounding immigration, adding that “it is actually a scandal that we are not taking more [asylum seekers] in”. Wallace said the people risking their live to cross the Mediterranean have had their lives destroyed by Western governments. He said countries such as Ireland often congratulate themselves, but the treatment of Travellers in Ireland shows we “are every bit as bad” and “are not ones to be throwing stones”. Like other prospective MEPs, Wallace believes European powers are “undemocratic”, adding that Brexit has raised a lot discussions about European reforms. The reasons the UK voted to leave the EU are “many and varied”, explained Wallace, who added that one reason that is not often reported is that people who voted to leave were from less well-off backgrounds, “who didn’t feel represented by politicians”.They essentially stuck two fingers up at Westminster and the EU,” he said, adding that in his opinion, the Nice and Lisbon Treaty did “serious damage to the effectiveness of democracy in the EU” which had “gone very neo-liberal.Europe, to Wallace, has moved to “looking after those that need the least looking after”, citing farmers and the threat to their livelihoods as an example. Environmental issues are another matter Europe has been “burying its head in the sand” on, he said, stating that Ireland is the “biggest culprit” in Europe. What are his chances of a seat? “People can judge whether they think I can make a difference in Brussels. I will certainly work very hard if elected.”“We think we can make a difference, but it is hard to know. But we can, God knows Europe needs a shake up, whether it is possible is another thing, but you have to try.” 44,319 Views Apr 20th 2019, 8:31 AM Image: Leah Farrell Image: Leah Farrell Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article By Christina Finn Saturday 20 Apr 2019, 8:30 AM Share Tweet Email1 Short URLlast_img read more

Réforme de la Santé les démocrates ladopteront grâce à une majorité simple

first_imgRéforme de la Santé : les démocrates l’adopteront grâce à une majorité simpleÉtats-Unis – Selon Harry Reid, le chef de la majorité démocrate au Sénat américain, les démocrates parviendront à faire adopter la réforme sur la Santé. C’est ce qu’il a fait savoir jeudi dernier au chef de l’opposition, Mitch McConnell.La réforme de la couverture maladie sera adoptée sans le soutien des républicains selon Harry Reid, avec une majorité simple de cinquante-et-une voix grâce à une procédure de réconciliation. À lire aussiBlack-out sur le web !Depuis le 19 janvier, la réforme est restée au point mort à cause de l’élection de sénateurs républicains, clairement opposés à la réforme lors des élections partielles. Pour eux, cette réforme qui permettra de fournir une couverture santé à 31 millions d’Américains, entraînera une hausse des impôts ainsi qu’une augmentation du déficit et une baisse des revenus des personnes âgées. Harry Reid a notifié à son adversaire, Mitch McConnell, que le parti démocrate avait “l’intention d’utiliser la procédure de réconciliation budgétaire, utilisée tant de fois par les républicains” pour faire passer les lois sur la Santé. Des éléments de la réforme seront ainsi corrigés pour qu’elle soit votée à une majorité simple. Sont particulièrement concernées les mesures jouant sur le budget fédéral.Un premier vote devrait avoir lieu ce jeudi 18 mars, même si certains membres du parti démocrate comme Nancy Pelosi, la présidente de la Chambre des représentants, pensent que l’adoption de la réforme prendra plus de temps.Le 12 mars 2010 à 16:04 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

I have a cunning plan Corbyn likens PMs Brexit plan to Blackadders

first_img Jeremy Corbyn used a popular British sitcom to attack Theresa May over her dithering plans to split from the EU on Wednesday (26 October).The Labour leader said the governments pronouncements were worthy of hapless Blackadder character Baldrick, whose catchphrase is I have a cunning plan.You told the House: We have a plan which is not to set out at every stage of the negotiations the details. Ive been thinking about this for a couple of days, Corbyn said.I think when youre searching for the real meaning and the importance behind the prime ministers statement, you have to consult the great philosophers…After pausing for a second as Conservative MPs shouted [Karl] Marx at the left-winger, he quipped: The only one I could come up with is Baldrick, who says: Our cunning plan is to have no plan.Brexit was apparently about taking back control. But the devolved governments dont know the plan, businesses dont know the plan and parliament doesnt know the plan.When will the prime minister abandon this shambolic Tory Brexit and develop a plan that delivers for the whole country?May hit back by pointing out that Tony Robinson, who played the Baldrick character between 1983 and 2000, is a Labour member –a fact Robinson later confirmed.Ill tell the Right Honourable Member what we are going to deliver, May said. We are going to deliver on the vote of the British people, we are going to deliver the best possible deal for trade in goods and services both with and operating in the EU and were going to deliver an end to free movement.May has promised to trigger Article 50, the official mechanism to split from the EU, by March 2017. But her government faces a challenge in Englands High Court other whether ministers have the authority to make such a move without a parliamentary vote.Labours shadow Brexit secretary has warned the UK will regain sovereignty for just a millisecond when the country splits from Brussels. When you sign a treaty you have – for the common good – given back again that bit of your sovereignty, said Sir Keir Starmer.The sovereignty that we gain will be for a millisecond between the signature that ends the major treaty and the signatures that enter the new treaties.

COPY LINKAD Loading …center_img It is too early to call a winner in the battle between solar and wind power versus dirty coal. For that matter, there might never be one, even after taking into account a lot of hot air about the odds of wind and solar power replacing thermal, hydro and coal.Conventional energy sources are as yet de rigueur to produce the humongous quantities of power which energy hungry nations like India need. But the battlelines for wind power growth have been etched into place for quite a while in the form of investments in manufacturing assets by a phalanx of multinational wind power titans. The second wave of wind power manufacturing and implementation companies entering the Indian market is just starting even as India has beaten its capacity addition targets for 2016 by a mile and more.Vestas, one of the earliest entrants to the Indian market, started operations in 1989 and was among the top three Indian players. The Danish firm sold about 3 GW (Gigawatt) of machines but quit India in 2012. It returned in 2014, announcing contracts worth 86 MW (Megawatt) in 2016, and is setting up a carbon fibre manufacturing plant in Gujarat at investments of 50 million Euro.Brazil’s WEG is keen on pushing wind power projects in Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh, while Copenhagen-based Vestas is consolidating its gains in Tamil Nadu and pushing further into the eastern and southern Indian markets. Tulsi Tanti’s Suzlon has long achieved cult status for holding a tidy fort against headwinds from the MNC wind energy giants.Acciona Wind Power, an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) which specialises in turnkey project deliveries in the wind energy space, is actively targeting new energy projects in Tamil Nadu and Gujarat. The Spanish turbine maker had late last month, signed power purchase agreements with the Karnataka government to operate two of its wind parks in the state.The growing attraction of world wind energy majors towards the Indian market has been spurred by policy initiatives of successive governments in the wind energy sector that includes introduction of bidding, repowering policy, the draft Wind-Solar Hybrid Policy and revised guidelines for development of wind power projects issued in 2014. The delightful result here is that wind generated power now accounts for 28.70 GW or 57.4 per cent of installed renewable energy capacity in India, followed by solar power with 9.01 GW, small hydro power with 4.33 GW and biomass power accounting for 7.85 GW.Blowing hot, blowing cold The enthusiasm is infectious, and private producers are blithe about record low prices for renewable energy and strong growth prospects in the Indian wind power market. But with a high-subsidy situation for renewable energy industries dealing with the sun and the wind, prices which turn out lower than dirty, though dependable coal, or other fossil fuels are simply to be expected.When it comes to future growth, the 175-GW target for renewable energy capacity (including 60 GW of cumulative wind power capacity) announced by India at the Paris Climate Summit looks aggressive; and rather steep — an addition of 12 GW of wind power capacity annually. Such a target masks the gestation period required for new energy sources like wind to acquire a major share of energy supply. It took coal, oil and gas 60 years to get to be the world’s major share of energy supply. Carbon free renewables are at the 5 per cent stage today.The financing issue is also particularly problematic, as the estimated $170 billion in investment is, in all likelihood, beyond the capacity of the domestic financial sector even with subsidies, writes renewable energy expert Atanu Mukherjee, president of M N Dastur & Co, in a leading national daily. Attracting international capital competing for similar energy technologies worldwide introduces new challenges, Mukherjee notes. Raghavendra NHe agrees that government subsidies and programmes help seed the market for wind and solar power programs, but such initiatives would require very large land banks in order to support competitive tariffs.The implementation of a National Clean Energy Fund which reimburses 40 percent of a wind power project’s costs through the Chennai-based Centre for Wind Energy Technology (C-WET) has been a strong opener for multinationals and private developers undertaking wind potential assessment in Indian locations.A few well aimed subsidies helped the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) set another record in wind power capacity addition by adding over 5,400 MW in 2016-17 against the target of 4,000 MW. This year’s achievement surpassed the previous higher capacity addition of 3,423 MW. In India, which is the biggest greenhouse gas emitter after the US and China, renewable energy currently accounts for about 16 percent of total installed capacity of 315,426 MW.Between May 2016 and the end of April 2017, India added a record 5 GW of new wind capacity. According to Windpower Intelligence, capacity exceeded 29.6 GW at the end of June.Off-grid dominationOver the past decade, the expansion of European and Chinese wind energy OEMs in India has been fuelled by the government’s ambitious renewable energy targets and the possibility of moving away from the turnkey model of project delivery. “By now, we are slightly more optimistic,” Nordex CEO Jose Luis Blanco said in a speech last month, after India’s shift to a tender-based model for wind projects caused irritation among investors. But Nordex knows the pitfalls of the game.While over 55 percent of the installed renewable power capacity of 50,018 MW across the country comprises wind power, at least 40 percent of this is understood to be not grid interactive. There have been cases where states refused to pay up for wind or solar power pushed onto their grids by private producers, leading to projects being either stranded or called off totally. Private solar and wind power producers in Karnataka have had their share of nightmares with distribution companies who refuse to pay up on time.There is the lack of a quick and prompt payments mechanism in a distribution system riddled with leakages and corruption at every step, besides private wind power producers still relying on irregular and short-term subsidies.Wind power is a clear source of vital energy provided India masters the game of integrating it successfully into its largescale power networks. Improving grid interactivity for the wind power industry through a wider range of short-term subsidies and incentives for private players is the way the wind will blow.Moreover, India’s electricity grid has lagged far behind the construction of wind farms. Expanding the grid continues to be a logistical challenge which the Modi government faces in states like Uttar Pradesh and the North East. Once grids are online, the amount of electricity being leaked out of transmission lines pose further problems for monetising wind energy. Huge arrays were built only to have to wait for ages to be plugged into the grid. Even once connected, much electricity leaks out of transmission lines. And the grid often proves unable to cope with surges in electricity as the wind blows.Getting it onto the wireIndia has apparently worked hard to resolve many of these problems. For instance, new wind farms now get connected faster. Yet, despite improvements, the grid still struggles to cope with fluctuating loads and variations in wind and solar energy. These, coupled with the lack of adequate electricity storage facilities, result in about 15-20 per cent of all renewable energy generated in India being wasted, according to private producers. Raghavendra NThe typical strategy has been to simply discard the unstable power without it ever entering the grid. Better storage technologies are coming in, and energy companies are coming to grips with the problem by considering lithium ion batteries as storage options to ensure uniform output — which is “grid-ready”.While companies gear up their R&D warchests to ensure that wind farms run to full capacity, they will also have to improve the quality of their turbines and ensure that maintenance of newer machines does not fall short. A lot of poor servicing in India leads to wind farms operating below capacity. Upcoming investments focussed on addressing these issues will help IREDA better address India’s capacity targets.While supplementing a high baseload of dirty, but dependable coal, viability gap funding will be key to ensuring that the operational challenges of storage and stable supply of electricity across wind types are met. The industry has called for more tax incentives for storage technology manufacturing. But the biggest question which will plague government and producers alike will be how large a share of power supply will continue to be generated from a fluctuating source like wind.India will need a highly connected national wind grid which backs up areas experiencing weaker wind patterns with the right power generation balance. This could become a model for green energy use elsewhere, and is achievable, despite the government’s 175 GW target for renewable energy capacity by 2022 looking less so.last_img read more
