UK lifts travel warning on Sri Lanka

“We now assess that the risk to British people in Sri Lanka has reduced enough for us to make this change,” the High Commission said. Acting High Commissioner Tom Burn said he is glad that the UK has been able to make this change. “We know how difficult these weeks have been for everyone in Sri Lanka who relies on tourism for a living.  Our primary concern will always be safety, and our travel advice continues to warn of the threat of further attacks in Sri Lanka.  But we hope that the change we have made today will help Sri Lanka’s recovery from the Easter Sunday attacks, and to efforts to build a safe and inclusive future for everyone,” the Acting High Commissioner said. (Colombo Gazette) The UK is no longer advising British travellers and tourists against all but essential travel to Sri Lanka.The UK High Commission in Colombo said that the UK has kept its travel advice under constant review since the Easter Sunday attacks, engaging closely with the Sri Lankan Government, the tourism industry and the police. However, the the High Commission said that no foreign travel can ever be guaranteed as safe, and the new travel advice reflects the assessment that terrorists are very likely to attempt to carry out further attacks in Sri Lanka. read more


Sales rise as new car buyers vote for UK dealers

Year to date sales hit 855,079 units, a rise of 3.2 per cent New car registrations rose by seven per cent in April, once again driven by strong demand in the private sector. Up 18 per cent last month, private sales through franchised dealers have fuelled seven months of growth in the new car market. The UK continues to buck the European trend, where sales fell by an average 4.9 per cent in the first quarter of the year. Commenting on the figures, Christopher Macgowan, SMMT Chief Executive, said ‘Although some people have called for an end to manufacturers’ dealer networks, seven consecutive months of growth shows that car buyers have confidence in their local franchise. They know that the most competitive deals are available in the UK and that their local dealer is best placed to offer advice, assistance and after sales care’. Notes to editors Private registrations accounted for 48 per cent of total registrations last month compared to 44 per cent in April last year. New car registrations up seven per cent in April to 179,996 units Demand from private buyers soared 18 per cent to 86,906 units The forecast for total registrations this year is 2,25 million units. Last year 2.22 million new cars were registered in the UK.

72hour ceasefire in Gaza begins moments after attacks from both sides

first_imgSmoke rises over Gaza City, in northern Gaza Strip, after an Israeli strike Source: Lefteris PitarakisA 72-HOUR ceasefire between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip brokered by Egypt came into effect at 8am (5am GMT) today.Just minutes beforehand, air raid sirens sounded in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv as Hamas militants fired a barrage of rockets at central Israel, AFP correspondents said.Similarly, in Gaza, following the quietest night since the operation began on July 8, the Israeli air force staged at least five raids shortly before the truce began.Breakthrough Palestinian mourners carry the bodies of members of the Najam family during their funeral in Beit Lahiya, Gaza Strip Source: AP/Press Association ImagesThe breakthrough came during talks in Cairo on Monday, only days after a similar three-day truce collapsed in a deadly wave of violence within hours of starting on Friday.The United States welcomed the three-day cessation of hostilities, adding that the onus was on the Palestinian militia to maintain the truce.“This is a real opportunity. We strongly support the initiative,” Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken told CNN.Images of the bloodshed — which has cost the lives of more than 1,800 Palestinians and 64 Israeli soldiers in and near Gaza as well as three civilians in Israel — have sent tensions in the region soaring, earning the Jewish state strong criticism.“How many more deaths will it take to stop what must be called the carnage in Gaza?” French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius asked, as Britain said it was reviewing licences to sell arms to Israel.Israel and Hamas, the Islamic militant group that is the de facto ruler of Gaza, separately confirmed to AFP that they would abide by the new 72-hour ceasefire.“Israel will be honouring the ceasefire from tomorrow (Tuesday) at 8:00am (0500 GMT),” an Israeli official said on condition of anonymity.“Hamas informed Cairo a few minutes ago of their approval of the truce for 72 hours from tomorrow,” a spokesman for the group, Sami Abu Zuhri, said.

Source: AP/Press Association ImagesIn Jerusalem, one Israeli was killed and five hurt when a Palestinian rammed an earthmover into a bus yesterday, turning it over before the driver was shot dead by police, according to Israeli officials, describing it as a “terrorist attack”.Shortly afterwards, an Israeli soldier was shot and seriously wounded near a bus stop not far from the earlier attack, with police combing the area for his attacker.Late yesterday, Palestinians rioted in several east Jerusalem neighbourhoods, throwing stones and firing flares at security forces who arrested two suspects, a police spokeswoman said.- © AFP, 2014Read: Smyths tells Jervis store to take down sign saying Israeli goods removed>Read: Eight-year-old Palestinian girl killed six minutes into Israeli-declared ceasefire>last_img read more


Nissan Leaf Delivered to First Customer

first_imgA driver is San Francisco is now the world’s first owner of Nissan’s new electric car, the Leaf. The U.S. delivery came days before the car’s Japanese launch. Nissan last night called it “the first delivery of an affordable, mass-market, all-electric car since the first days of the automotive era.”The lucky owner is one Olivier Chalouhi, a Bay Area-based technology entrepreneur. Chalouhi seems pretty satisfied with his purchase thus far, telling the press, “It’s great on the highway. When you accelerate, it sounds like you have a jet engine or a turbine under the hood… You have to hear it–it’s very futuristic.”The five-seater goes on sale in Japan on December 20th.

25 des Françaises enceintes boivent de lalcool

first_img25% des Françaises enceintes boivent de l’alcoolUne étude de l’Inserm sur le sujet “Grossesse et alcool” publiée aujourd’hui montre que 25% des femmes enceintes continueraient aujourd’hui de boire durant leur grossesse, en France.Alcool et grossesse : ce sujet est aujourd’hui au cœur de tous les débats, et cela trois ans après que les bouteilles d’alcool se sont vues habillées d’un nouveau pictogramme : celui d’une femme enceinte un verre à la main, le tout barré. Le gouvernement a également, ces dernières années, mis en place plusieurs campagnes d’information et de sensibilisation, afin que le message “zéro alcool pendant la grossesse” soit suivi par toutes. Pour autant, cela ne semble pas avoir eu les résultats escomptés puisqu’un nouveau rapport sur le sujet montre qu’un quart des Françaises enceintes continueraient à boire durant la grossesse, dont 6% avec excès, soit plus de deux verres par jour, explique Le Parisien.À lire aussiToxoplasmose : symptômes, traitement, grossesse, quels sont les risques ?Et le Pr Mickaël Naassila d’expliquer lors d’un colloque de l’Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale, qu’un bébé exposé à l’alcool durant la période de gestation de la mère peut naitre avec des particularités physiques au niveau du visage, avec des déficiences mentales, le syndrome d’alcoolisation fœtale ou des malformations organiques. Le spécialiste ajoute : “De nombreux enfants chez qui on détecte, à l’âge scolaire, des problèmes d’hyperactivité, de déficits d’attention, de troubles du comportement sont en fait des enfants dont la mère a consommé de l’alcool enceinte. C’est d’autant plus délicat que le problème ne se voit pas à la naissance”. De son côté, le Dr Chabrolle, spécialiste du Syndrome d’alcoolisation fœtale, explique au Parisien : “Les pictogrammes, c’est bien. Mais le vrai problème, c’est que l’alcool est un sujet complètement tabou en France. Les gynécologues n’abordent pas assez le sujet avec leurs patientes. Il faut mieux les former à repérer la consommation d’alcool chez les futures mères. Un seul verre fait courir un risque au bébé (…) le cerveau du fœtus est l’organe le plus sensible à l’alcool, car il se développe pendant neuf mois, alors que les autres organes se forment au premier trimestre”.Le 8 décembre 2010 à 16:11 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Data privacy Srikrishna panel backs explicit consent for sensitive data penalties for

first_imgIn picture: The fingerprints of an individual are being recorded for Aadhaar enrolment. [Representational image]Wikimedia CommonsIn a historic development toward framing the country’s first law on data protection, Justice Srikrishna panel on Friday submitted the draft report in protection and storage of local and personal data. The 213-page draft bill advocated the idea of ‘explicit’ consent for sensitive data.The committee, which was set up in 2017 to recommend a legislative framework for data privacy, submitted its report to the Union minister for law and justice, and electronics and Information Technology, Ravi Shankar Prasad. The Government is likely to run through the proposed bill and discuss with all the stakeholders before enacting it in the parliament. Union Minister for Electronics & Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasadin New Delhi on May 23, 2017IANSHere are the key recommendations made by the Sri Krishna PanelThe law will be applicable over the processing of personal data if such data has been used, shared, disclosed, collected or otherwise processed in India. There is an exception in this case in the way that if the data processed by the fiduciaries outside India, the law will be applied to the businesses in India. The law will not be enacted retrospectivelyThe data protection law calls for the establishment of a Data Protection Authority (DPA) which will be an independent regulatory body with the responsibility of enforcing and effectively implementing the law. An appellate tribunal shall be set up by the central government or will grant power to an existing appellate tribunal to hear and dispose of any appeal against an order of the DPAPasswords, financial data, health data, official identifier, sex life, sexual orientation, biometric and genetic data, and data that reveals transgender status, intersex status, caste, tribe, religious or political beliefs or affiliations of an individual shall be considered as sensitive personal dataThe state has the power to process data without the consent of use only in some special circumstances. The special cases mentioned in this regard is ground of public welfare, law and order, emergency situations where the individual is incapable of providing consent, employment and reasonable purpose.The Law also calls for the penalties for the violations of the data protection law. The penalties imposed would be an amount up to the fixed upper limit or a percentage of the total worldwide turnover of the preceding financial year, whichever is higherExplicit consent from the person is required before using, sharing, disclosing, collecting or otherwise processing data in India.The law covers the processing of personal data by both public and private entitiesCritics of the new report have pointed out that the regulation it suggests lacks teeth to deal with data breaches. Specifically, the recommendations by the panel are lax when it comes to the right to be forgotten and data privacy.Some security experts have also raised concerns over the panel’s recommendation of storing data locally. Srikrishna committee asks companies to store a copy of data of Indian nationals within the country, meaning that companies can still keep data elsewhere as well. Experts say that this helps the government easily access data, but does almost nothing to protect the privacy of a person.last_img read more


Nonprofits startups seizing on Trumps dream wall

first_imgSupporters hold placards as US president Donald Trump holds a rally at El Paso County Coliseum in El Paso, Texas, US, on 11 February 2019. Reuters File PhotoPresident Donald Trump’s signature campaign vow to erect a wall on the southern US border with Mexico has been mired in cross-border bickering and opposition from Democratic lawmakers with power over the government’s purse strings.But amid the political stalemate, a wave of only-in-America entrepreneurs, fundraisers and profiteers have taken the issue into their own hands.Tapping into Trump’s outrage over immigrants pouring into the United States, several dozen citizens have created non-profit and for-profit organisations, started GoFundMe pages, and launched political action committees to raise money to fund the wall or support like-minded candidates.In all, more than $25 million has poured in, the vast majority to a venture led by an Air Force veteran who has become the most public face of the fundraising mission.Who’s paying the bill? Americans such as Arlene Mackay, 80, a Montana cattle rancher who gave $1,000 in January to what she thought was a multi-million dollar fundraiser, dubbed We Build the Wall, to construct a border wall. In fact, her money went to a different venture with a similar name: Build the Wall.“I thought I might be buying a piece of the wall – like an inch,” said Mackay, when informed her donation had not reached its intended target. The money, she said, could have gone instead to buy half a cow. “I’m just going to say I better be very cautious from now on.”In all, Reuters found, more than 330,000 Americans have dipped into their wallets to bankroll emerging border wall campaigns. With their investments have come big promises, but few concrete results. The most noticeable impact so far: A half-mile of new bollard-style fencing in eastern New Mexico, built by the largest border wall fundraiser.Heavy machinery moves a bollard-type wall, to be placed along the border of private property using funds raised from a GoFundMe account, at Sunland Park, N.M., as seen from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico on 27 May 2019. Reuters File PhotoEven that project has been beset by regulatory concerns. Meanwhile, wall-themed novelty toy sellers and failed political action committees have left behind some disappointed customers and donors.Yet even if these efforts don’t deliver a full border wall, some backers express no regrets.“I don’t expect a private organisation to actually finish it, but what I’m hoping is that it will resonate with other politicians and government, and show that we’ve got a movement,” said Richard Mills, 68, an Ohio information technology worker who gave $400 to two border wall fundraisers.Wall CrowdfundingUS government analysts have been sceptical about the need to seal off the Mexican border with 1,300 more miles of wall. Each new mile of fencing and barriers would yield diminishing returns while costing more in installation and maintenance, concluded a 2016 Congressional Research Service report.And then there’s the cost to build: $21.6 billion, according to an internal Department of Homeland Security report.The idea of sealing off the US border with Mexico has been a Trump fixation, ever since his June 2015 campaign promise to build a “great, great wall on our southern border” galvanised voters angry over illegal immigration.Since his election, the wall plans have stalled. When Congress refused to meet Trump’s requests for billions in wall funding, he forced a 35-day government shutdown at the end of 2018, then declared an emergency in February, a manoeuvre hung up in federal court challenges.Meanwhile, a handful of fundraising campaigns have sprung up to solicit cash from fervent believers who want more miles built. The groups are run by veterans, ex-government officials, even a seven-year-old Texas boy who raised wall money with a hot chocolate stand.Ray Nurnberger, general manager at a Long Island lumber yard, has donated more than $300 to three different border wall fundraisers over the past year, even while saving up for a wedding and preparing to support his first child.“I’ll keep giving, because I don’t want my kid to not be able to find a job, or have to compete with people who didn’t come here legally,” said Nurnberger, 46.A general view shows a construction crew working on a bollard-type private border wall, crowd-funded by We Build The Wall group at Sunland Park, New Mexico, as pictured from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico on 30 May 2019. Reuters File PhotoHis donations shed light on the circuitous path contributions can follow once they leave donors’ hands.His first went to the Border Wall Foundation, a non-profit created in 2018 by Ken Downey, a veteran and former Border Patrol communications supervisor, who said he did it as a civics lesson for his teenage daughter. They created a website, set up social media pages – but raised just $2,450, which he holds in an account while continuing to fundraise.“If someday we get too frustrated and decide to quit and throw our hands in the air and say ‘we’re not getting there,’ we’d donate it to another effort to build the wall,” said Downey, of Washington State.Next, Nurnberger gave $100 to a border wall fundraiser launched by the National Sheriffs Association in March 2018, with a promise that “100 per cent of your tax-deductible donation will go to secure America’s southern border.” But the logistics of collecting donations began to overwhelm the association, and some sheriffs argued against supporting Trump’s border wall.In September 2018, the sheriffs decided to donate their funds, which totalled around $25,000 at the time, to another non-profit campaign, Fund the Wall. That effort was founded by a Maryland IT professional, Quentin Kramer, who had registered the web domain name before Trump ran for president. On the day the sheriffs’ donations started flowing into Kramer’s group, Bristol County, Massachusetts, Sheriff Thomas Hodgson appeared on Fox television to promote the sheriffs’ fundraising website. Donations poured in: $100,000 that week, Kramer said.But the effort had already hit its own wall. Kramer’s plan was to send donations to the US Department of Homeland Security to be used for wall construction. DHS said it couldn’t take the money, telling Kramer it did “not have the resources to process external donations at this time.”Hodgson told Kramer the sheriffs had already been talking to DHS and could cut through the red tape. In November, Hodgson submitted a form on behalf of Fund the Wall, offering to donate $100,000 to DHS, stipulating that the agency “may only use this gift to construct border barriers (e.g. a wall) on the southern border of USA,” according to the form, reviewed by Reuters.Cattle rancher Arlene Mackay, 80, poses at her ranch in Avon, Montana, US on 28 June 2019. Photo: ReutersDHS said its office that processes gifts had not seen the form, and that it had “no information to offer on the status of a donation.” Hodgson said he would go back to DHS to figure out what happened.Today, Nurnberger’s $100 sits in the bank account of Fund the Wall, along with $222,267 in other donations. Nurnberger said he had no idea where his money had landed, until contacted by Reuters.“I guess that approach wasn’t the right way to go about it, because they don’t seem to have the ability to get that money to DHS,” he said.’We Build The Wall’Meanwhile, Nurnberger had already donated an additional $100 to another border wall fundraiser, this one launched on the online fundraising platform GoFundMe in December 2018.That effort, initially named “We The People Will Fund The Wall,” was spearheaded by Brian Kolfage. A triple amputee US Air Force veteran, Kolfage formerly ran a company that made millions running right-wing media pages. His border wall fundraiser pulled in $20 million in donations within a month, promoted by prominent immigration sceptics such as Trump’s former campaign manager Steve Bannon and former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.At first, Kolfage pledged to send donations to the US government. But in January, he updated the GoFundMe site to say his team had decided to use the money instead to hire private contractors and build the wall themselves, rebranding the fundraiser as “We Build the Wall.”Under GoFundMe rules, that meant the donors got their money back. But most of them, accounting for $14 million, kept their money with Kolfage. With more than $11 million in new donations, he’s now raised over $25 million.Kolfage drew support from fundraisers such as Benton Stevens, the seven-year-old Texas boy who set up a hot chocolate stand to raise money for a border wall after watching Trump’s State of the Union speech.We Build the Wall contacted Stevens’ family after his stand made the news in February, and his parents eventually donated the funds to Kolfage’s effort, said his father Shane, who estimated his son raised $28,000.Benton still draws donations from Benton’s Stand, a website selling hot chocolate mix, powdered lemonade and Trump-themed products.At the end of May, Kolfage unveiled the first fruits of his project: the steel bollard fence on private property near the US-Mexico border in Sunland Park, New Mexico. Benton Stevens and Kolfage jointly wielded the scissors during the ribbon-cutting ceremony.The wall, which Kolfage said cost around $7.5 million, immediately hit resistance. Sunland Park city officials issued a cease and desist order, saying the project was not properly permitted. In turn, Kolfage told his thousands of supporters the city was in league with drug cartels, urging them to pressure local officials to allow construction to proceed.Over the next two days, the city pushed through approvals, on condition Kolfage met all code requirements. Sunland Park city officials declined comment.We Build the Wall ran into similar permitting problems with an agency called the International Boundary and Water Commission, which controls an access road into Mexico near the site. Kolfage’s team built a gate across the road. Kolfage and the commission worked out an arrangement under which the gate remains closed at night but open during the day.A construction crew works on a bollard-type private border wall, crowd-funded by We Build The Wall group at Sunland Park, New Mexico, as pictured from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico on 30 May 2019. Reuters File PhotoDays before his team broke ground, Kolfage said, a White House official he would not name told the boundary commission “not to mess with” his operation.The commission “looked into that claim and could not find anyone who had received that call,” said spokeswoman Sally Spener. The White House did not return calls for comment.The half-mile of wall did not succeed in completely sealing the border near Sunland Park; video showed migrants running across the border a few miles away.“You gotta start somewhere, that’s how we look at it,” said Kolfage, comparing the border to a leaky hose that must be patched in multiple spots.A budget of estimated project expenses he submitted to the state of Florida, where his organisation is registered, sets aside $690,000 for salaries and $350,000 for “professional and consulting” expenses in 2019.He said the salaries are for his eight or nine full-time employees, including his spokesperson and Kobach, his general counsel. Kolfage says he is taking no compensation.After complaints to the Florida Attorney General, the state’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services opened a review. The complaints noted that Kolfage was promoting a donor-only raffle to win a trip to visit the wall, but Florida law says charities must allow anyone, not just donors, to enter contests. Kolfage dismissed the inquiry as “smoke and mirrors.”The department said the probe is ongoing and declined further comment.Such controversy has concerned some fellow fundraisers. “You get too many black eyes like this and people are gonna lose faith,” said Jon Brimus, spokesman for Fund the Wall.Kolfage said his success had bruised the egos of critics, but acknowledged his effort alone could never raise enough money to fund the entire wall. “Our end game is really just to keep the pressure on our government to fix this crisis from both sides.”Linda Kilgore, a Washington State retiree, donated $100 to both Kolfage’s GoFundMe and Downey’s Border Wall Foundation. Kilgore, 65, said her career as a school teacher showed her illegal immigrants were overwhelming public schools, so she began donating to the border wall after a lifetime supporting causes such as wildlife conservation. She was happy to hear of Florida’s scrutiny of Kolfage.“If somebody is taking my money, and I don’t care if it’s for polar bears or penguins, I’m hoping you’re above board, and if somebody’s looking over your shoulder, that’s great,” she said.Georgia Hostetler, 89, of South Carolina, has sent Kolfage’s group $30 a month since December. “When I see that man that lost two legs and an arm, I just love what he’s doing,” she said of the veteran.Pac PoliticsTrump’s border wall has become a magnet for political PACs, independent committees that operate with far fewer rules than campaigns on contributions and spending. At least four committees geared toward supporting the wall and like-minded political candidates were launched after his election.All four failed to generate much, if any, money. They did confuse some donors.“I thought it was going to go right to the wall,” said Chris Kilsdonk, 63, who runs a small business boarding and grooming dogs in rural Montana. She gave $400 to Raise the Wall, a committee started by a Republican political consultant in suburban Washington, D.C.Kilsdonk gave after reading “a lot of articles on Facebook.” She said she was not aware she was giving to a political committee.Raise the Wall Treasurer Chris Marston said he created the PAC in 2017 for a client, Mike Khristo, a web designer and Internet marketer from California. Donors were supposed to receive engraved bricks, but Marston said that proved to be too expensive.“Fundraising costs ate up the whole amount that they raised,” Marston said. Raise the Wall received $13,246, but gave no money to support candidates before it was terminated six months later. Khristo declined to comment.Another PAC, Build the Wall, began in January 2018, before Kolfage’s similarly named fund drive, by two California political consultants, Tommy Knepper and Briana Baleskie. Knepper said the plan was to raise funds for Republican Senate candidates in 2018, but his committee didn’t gain traction, raising $14,764 but giving nothing to support campaigns.Knepper said he didn’t make any money from Build the Wall, and Baleskie, the treasurer, said she refunded a couple of misdirected contributions. They said they intend to shut it down. “We’re not out to frustrate people,” Baleskie said.Political professionals weren’t the only ones getting involved. Daniel Schramek of St. Petersburg, Florida, is a Trump campaign volunteer once sanctioned by the Florida Supreme Court for practicing law without a license. Schramek started the Great Wall of America super PAC in 2017. The committee raised $700, which Schramek said he intends to refund to donors.“It’s a lot of work getting people to donate money,” he said.Another committee, the American Border Protection PAC, started in January. “There are greedy individuals who are raising enormous amounts of money to build the wall for personal gain and fame,” the committee’s website warns, saying all money would go to DHS for wall construction.American Border Protection was the brainchild of Chrysalis Johnson, 43, a now-unemployed Arizona software designer who launched an earlier venture in cryptocurrency and an anti-Facebook campaign.He said his effort might help Americans living in border towns.But, Johnson said, “No one wanted to buy into it.” He reported no contributions received.last_img read more

This Man Bit Into an iPhone Battery and It Exploded

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 2 min read If you’ve ever worried your smartphone battery is a fake, here’s a tip: don’t bite into it.A man in China learned this lesson the hard way. He took a bit out of his iPhone battery only to watch it explode.Video footage of the incident has been circulating online, and shows an explosion going off in front of the man’s face as he stands inside a local electronics mart. Amazingly, no one in the video appears to be seriously hurt.The footage comes from an iPhone repair service called GeekBar, which is based in the Chinese city of Nanjing. The company originally posted it last week, claiming the man in the footage was trying to test whether the battery was genuine or not. (Clearly it was real.)Mishandling a smartphone battery is never a good idea. Over the years, lithium-ion batteries have shown their tendency to catch fire and explode whenever punctured.That’s because damaging a battery can cause it to short circuit and spark a buildup of heat, according to Battery University, a go-to resource on how lithium-ion cells work. That buildup can quickly cascade into “thermal runaway,” forcing the battery cells inside to all overheat in a chain reaction.”The temperature can quickly reach 500 degrees Celsius (932 degrees Fahrenheit), at which point the cell catches fire or it explodes,” according to Battery University.The key takeaway: don’t mess around with your smartphone’s battery. Other videos on YouTube have shown it’s easy to trigger an incident when a lithium-ion battery is punctured. That can include stabbing one with a kitchen knife or shooting a smartphone with a bow and arrow.

Take one quarterback off the market and add anothe

first_imgTake one quarterback off the market and add another one to it.While the San Francisco 49ers trading Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs means he is no longer an option for the Arizona Cardinals, his arrival signals departure from Kansas City of someone who could be.Look for Matt Cassel to be one of the quarterbacks on the Cardinals’ radar. Cassel also will receive interest from other teams.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 27, 2013 Cassel, 30, has spent the last four seasons with the Chiefs after starting his career with New England. A Pro Bowler in 2010 when he threw for 27 touchdowns and just seven interceptions, his numbers have dipped since as he dealt with injuries and ineffectiveness. Cassel played in just nine games each of the last two seasons, and in 2012 completed 58.1 percent of his passes for 1,796 yards and six touchdowns while throwing 12 interceptions. Not known for having a big arm, which is something new Cardinals coach Bruce Arians would appear to prefer, it is unclear if Cassel would be a good fit in Arizona. However, with the Chiefs set to release him he would be a reasonably cheap option for a Cardinals team that could use some help at the position.

California there’s evidence of the state’s goal to lead the country in renewable energy Enormous farms of shiny solar panels have popped up across southern California and gigantic wind turbines dot the landscape outside nearly all the major cities There are less flashyand less visibleinvestments in renewables going on too Tucked away in warehouses trailers and industrial parks are lithium ion batteries that if all goes well will play a critical role in helping California hit its ambitious target: to have 50% of all electricity come from renewables by 2050 Some green energy sources come with a built-in challenge: the wind and the sun can’t be turned on and off at will When it’s windy and sunny an abundance of energy may be harnessedbut any excesses go to waste That’s where batteries the most common type of energy storage come in Batteries solve that problem by allowing utility companies to collect excess electricity and store it for times when the sun may not be shining or the wind not blowing "Networks care about reliability" says Logan Goldie-Scot an energy-storage analyst at Bloomberg New Energy Finance "Energy storage is being viewed by network operators as a potential tool in their toolbox and that hasnt been the case up until now” In 2013 California launched an aggressive effort to ramp up large-scale energy storage with an initial goal of building 1325 megawatts of storage by 2020 the equivalent capacity of two average sized coal-fired power plants Today the state is already home to 36% of the country’s battery storage capacity with projects continuing to open on a regular basis according to a Climate Group report Oregon and Massachusetts have since announced their own storage targets Meanwhile dozens of cities have made commitments to get 100% of their electricity from renewables California’s effort will serve as test case for policymakers and utilities across the country hoping to deploy more renewables If it works as planned others will likely follow suit “Everybody looks to California to see what works and what doesnt workand how to tweak it” says Marlene Motyka global renewable energy leader at Deloitte “States are looking at it in terms of renewable technologies and how to get more value out of their systems” Batteries will also change the power sector as homeowners and businesses install their own products Batteries at homes offices and other commercial buildings allow customers to save electricity collected by their solar panels and use it at times when electricity prices are highest One in four businesses with more than 250 employees has already deployed batteries to help with their electricity management according to a Deloitte study Regulatory changes that encourage battery owners to sell back stored electricity when it’s in high demand could increase interest in batteries analysts say Batteries installed in electric vehicles for instance will also affect the electric grid as automakers continue to expand their offerings Experts say the impact will both stress and help utilities manage their electricity supply The stress comes as vehicles create a new demand for energy but at the same time batteries in those vehicles act as a storage unit of their own that may offer new flexibility The largest battery in a Tesla as one example can store enough electricity to power the average American home for more than three days Utilities have begun exploring programs to encourage electric vehicle owners to charge their cars when there is extra power on the grid Perhaps the biggest open question for energy storage remains how muchand wherethe market will grow in the coming yearswhether lithium ion batteries will keep their place as the top way of storing electricity Hydrogen storage molten salt and other forms of batteries all offer alternatives that have received significant investment in recent years But much like photovoltaic solar panels in recent years the cost of lithium ion batteries has already come down so much that the market’s continued growth seems almost inevitable “A few years ago batteries were seen as talked about in terms of innovative technology” says Motyka “Now its here and starting to be used in full force” Write to Justin Worland at justinworland@timecomArtists are different from the rest of us: they make their pain public Most people conceal their grievances under an official smile fearful that the airing of any animosities will force confrontations and result in emotional defeat But aspiring artists don’t care what their parents or peers think They channel their resentments into a semiautobiographical first novel… …Or in Xavier Dolan’s case a first film Made when he was 19 with Dolan in the lead role and detailing the betrayal he felt when his mother got exasperated by his antics and sent him off to a boarding school the movie bore the ultimate Oedipal revenge title: I Killed My Mother It fairly burst with teen trauma and with the unassimilated visual influences of such auteurs of romantic angst as Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Wong Kar-wai Premiering at Cannes in 2009 the film immediately established Dolan as the enfant terrible of French Canadian cinema Tomorrow the world Make that today At a still-precocious 25 the former Montreal child star takes a more mature but endlessly provocative and exhilarating look at the same relationship in Mommy At last years Cannes it shared the Jury Prize with another daring film the 3-D Goodbye to Language by the 83-year-old Jean-Luc Godard and finally opens this weekend in US theaters Mommy is intimate emotionally choleric sensational and a bit loo long (at 2hr20min) But its excesses are at the heart of its appeal Beginning with a car crash and accelerating from there Mommy administers primal therapy to its viewers and perhaps to Dolan himself10 As in I Killed My Mother the embattled mom is played by Anne Dorval Suzanne Clément a sympathetic teacher in the earlier film takes a similar part here And the role of Dolans charming troubled teen alter ego is brilliantly assumed by Antoine Olivier Piton This time though the viewpoint is reversed Never condemning the son for his explosions Dolan portrays the mother as a boundless fountain of tough love She is Mommy dearest without the twisted Joan Crawford irony “Back in the days of I Killed My Mother” Dolan proclaimed at Cannes “I felt like I wanted to punish my mom [But] through Mommy I’m now seeking her revenge Don’t ask” Widowed for three years Diane “Die” Després (Dorval) cleans houses and occasionally translates children’s books Her 15-year-old son Steve (Piton) afflicted with ADHD and given to violent outbursts has started a fire in the school he’s been assigned to causing the burning of another young inmate Now Diane is to be caregiver and teacher to the blond good-looking Steve Their verbal battles waged at maximum volume in a raw Quebec patois would singe any viewers ears But at heart there is love: in Steve’s buying Diane a necklace with the word MOMMY and in Diane’s indefatigable championing of her son They get unexpected help from their neighbor Kyla (Clément) a high-school teacher on leave for depression who agrees to tutor the boy She and Diane get along like loving sisters especially when they open the box wine and dissolve helplessly into giggles But Steve who has harbors improbable ambitions of going to the Juilliard School hates the idea of sitting still for an education testing his teacher with rude taunts When he rips off Kylas necklace she wrestles him to the floor and her nose to his fiercely lays down the law His response is that of a frightened child or puppy: he wets himself Steve keeps bubbling with an adolescent sexual tension that threatens to boil over into Oedipal transgression But in a film whose only two females are maternal figures the prime primal theme is the love everyone needs not the sex everyone wants “I’m afraid you’ll stop loving me” Steve tells Diane She replies with a mother’s melancholy truth: “What’s gonna happen is I’m gonna be loving you more and more and you’ll be loving me less and less That’s just the natural way of life” Set in “a fictional Canadian future” Mommy is a film about right now and always about any family’s bonds and how the members fight to strengthen or break them Dolan and cinematographer André Turpin chose an unusual screen ratio Instead of wide screen they went for narrow screen like a vertical iPhone shot perfect for capturing the length of a body or the anguish on a face and to dramatize operatic feelings in a narrow field In only two sequences does the image expand to the full screen when Steve or Diane imagines life without social or spatial confines until the sides of the image start closing like prison walls around a convict’s dreams The Motion Picture Academy committee that chooses the Foreign Language Film shortlist excluded Mommy from its semi-final group of nine But that is Oscars problem not Dolans Prizes are irrelevant to a film that should hit audiences in their collective gut Stripping himself of his stylistic borrowings from other directors Dolan has found his own urgent voice and visual style Mommy doesn’t aim for classical grandeur Instead it bursts through the screen with the rough vitality of real people in an explosion of suffocating power and surprising
