Safe Cooking Practices Can Save LivesSafe Cooking Practices Can Save Lives

first_img If a fire does happen in the kitchen: Smother the fire by sliding a lid over the pot and turning off the stovetop. Leave the pot completely covered until it is completely cooled. Always keep a pot lid nearby to smother a small flame for an oven fire, turn off the heat and keep the door closed don’t try to extinguish a grease fire with water get out immediately and call 9-1-1 turning the stove off when leaving the kitchen turning pot handles away from the edge of the stove wearing tight-fitting sleeves while cooking keeping anything that can catch fire, such as oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains, away from stovetops encouraging children not to play near stoves using only approved appliances following instructions for microwaves, including not heating anything with metal unpluging small appliances, such as kettles, coffeemakers and toasters, when not in use Nova Scotians can protect themselves and their homes from kitchen fires by focusing on a few key tips. These range from staying in the kitchen while cooking to cleaning ovens on a regular basis, and sharing these will be the focus of Canada’s Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 6-12. “Our priority is to keep Nova Scotians safe and supporting Fire Prevention Week is one of the ways we can help protect people and their families,” said Harold Pothier, Fire Marshal. “Kitchen fires are a very common cause of house fires, and are usually a result of human error that can easily be prevented.” Tips for preventing kitchen fires are: “The most important thing to remember is to always make sure you stay in the kitchen and pay attention when cooking,” says Mr. Pothier. “And if a fire occurs, get out immediately and call 911.” Nova Scotians should also check their smoke alarms to ensure they are properly installed and maintained and they should test them frequently, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Batteries should be replaced once a year and the outside of the alarm should be vacuumed and cleaned throughout the year and the power supply tested by sounding the alarm. Alarms that do not sound need to be replaced. For more information on fire safety, visit novascotia.ca/lae/firesafety .last_img read more

Ease of living still a distant dream for most residents in NewEase of living still a distant dream for most residents in New

first_imgGurugram: Security, power and even water supply are some of the basic facilities that are being denied to a large number of families in New Gurugram as the builders have not paid the charges to the public agencies.Recently, the families residing at Dwarka Expressway said that they fear their power supply could be cut as the builders have not paid the charges to the electricity board. The stern action was taken by the public authorities even resulted in the resident’s welfare association statting that rather than focussing on the builder for the payment they would collect the amount and pay it directly to DHBVN. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderNot only power but even water supply seems to be denied due to the non-payment of dues by the builders. With over Rs 40 lakhs dues pending, the GMDA cut the water supply to a society in Sector-57. There have been over 20 residential societies that have also been served notices by the public agency for not paying for the water supply. The non-payment of salaries for more than three months also resulted in a union of security of guards of Godrej Frontier society protesting against the builder as well as the contractor. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsThe cost of rapid and unplanned growth of residential townships is being felt by its residents. Under debt, most of the builders have failed to apply for the licence for power, as a result 12,000 families are forced to depend on generators for their power supply. Most of the builders began their projects in 2005-2006 when the real estate business in the city was booming. The financial crisis of 2008 and the slowdown in the property market of the national capital region thereafter resulted in builders not applying for licences for power and even water connection to save costs. In the 400 residential societies that are presently there in Gurugram, around 120 of the condominiums are said to be not be provided with the power supply from the government body. Moreover, with piped water supply not being provided in most of the new sectors, the water is extracted from the groundwater reserves. All these complaints are coming out at a time when most of the builders are already facing flak over using substandard construction materials in building the residential societies.last_img read more

Children in Côte dIvoire learn about peace from UNICEFsponsored curriculumChildren in Côte dIvoire learn about peace from UNICEFsponsored curriculum

Children in post-conflict southern Côte d’Ivoire are learning to substitute concepts of peace and forgiveness for hate and intolerance in a curriculum co-sponsored by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). “Through the Peace and Tolerance curriculum, we have been able to reach thousands of children who otherwise only know messages of hate and distrust. This curriculum allows us to counteract those messages in every lesson in the classroom,” UNICEF’s Youssouf Oomar said in the main city, Abidjan. “This way we’re hoping that reconciliation and peace are not just slogans on their classroom walls.” UNICEF and its partners introduced the curriculum late last year to teach the children in a country bitterly divided by war that protection, peace and tolerance are not just words. “What is the most important thing for a child?” teacher Florence Abo Kossia asks her class. A lively little boy volunteers the first answer: “The right to have fun.” A failed coup attempt in 2002 against President Laurent Gbagbo led to a civil war that has left the country divided into the south, ruled by the Government, and the north, controlled by rebels. “Because of this war in Côte d’Ivoire, we thought that if people were taking up arms, it’s because they had no sense of peace. We, as teachers, are in charge of the children and we must promote this culture of peace so they can grow up and flourish,” Ms. Abo Kossia said. “They are still little. But they are the citizens of tomorrow and maybe even the [future] president of the republic is in my class right now. If the president doesn’t know about peace, how can he run his country?” read more

US business spending rises for 3rd month boosting factoriesUS business spending rises for 3rd month boosting factories

US business spending rises for 3rd month, boosting factories WASHINGTON – U.S. businesses ramped up their investment in industrial machinery, semiconductors and other big-ticket items last month, boosting demand for factory goods.A measure that tracks business spending plans climbed 0.8 per cent in December, after jumping 1.5 per cent the previous month, the Commerce Department said Friday.Orders for all durable goods, which are meant to last longer than three years, slipped 0.4 per cent, mostly because of a sharp fall in demand for defence aircraft, a volatile category. Excluding transportation-related goods, orders rose 0.5 per cent, the sixth straight increase.The report adds to recent evidence that manufacturers are climbing out of a roughly two-year rut. A strong U.S. dollar and falling oil and gas prices had sliced demand for factory products, as drillers ordered less steel pipe and other equipment. Yet demand has risen since oil prices have stabilized.Orders for industrial machinery rose 0.4 per cent last month, while demand for computers, semiconductors and electronic goods jumped 2.4 per cent. Orders for autos climbed 2 per cent, a sign automakers expect additional sales growth.Other measures of the U.S. manufacturing sector have also improved. A private survey earlier this month found that manufacturing activity in December rose to its highest level in two years, led higher by strong increases in new orders and production.And manufacturing output rose 0.2 per cent in December, according to a report from the Federal Reserve. Auto sales reached a record level in 2016, and automakers continued cranking out vehicles through the end of the year.Still, manufacturing has not yet fully rebounded. Manufacturing output rose just 0.2 per cent in all of 2016, according to the Fed.And business investment in long-lasting goods fell 3.4 per cent last year, despite the gains of the last three months.

UN telecom agency launches study to assess status of cybersecurity worldwideUN telecom agency launches study to assess status of cybersecurity worldwide

The Global Cybersecurity Index (GCI) will be spearheaded by ITU and ABI Research with the long-term aim to drive further efforts in the integration of cybersecurity on a global scale and bridging gaps worldwide. It will allow for a comparison of different national cybersecurity strategies and best practices to be highlighted in specific areas. “Greater connectivity also brings with it greater risk,” said ITU Secretary-General Hamadoun Touré, in the margins of the agency’s World Telecommunications Development Conference (WTDC) in Dubai. “As our physical and cyber worlds overlap, there is an increased need to address the related challenges of ensuring security, human rights, rule of law, good governance and economic development,” he added.“In embracing technological progress, cybersecurity must form an integral and invisible part of that process,” said Brahima Sanou, Director of ITU’s Telecommunication Development Bureau addressing the forum. “Unfortunately, cybersecurity is not yet at the core of many national and industrial technology strategies.” The goal of the GCI is to help foster a global culture of cybersecurity and its integration at the core of information and communication technologies. “Countries need to be aware of their current capability level in cybersecurity and, at the same time, identify areas where cybersecurity needs to be enhanced,” Mr. Sanou stressed.Based on questionnaire responses received by ITU member States, a first analysis of cybersecurity development in the Arab region was compiled and one for the Africa region is under way. The objective is to release a global status of cybersecurity for 2014.The World Telecommunication Development Conference that opened in Dubai on 30 March and will be in session until 10 April. read more

Newmont outlines leading mineral technology at its Malozemoff Technical FacilityNewmont outlines leading mineral technology at its Malozemoff Technical Facility

first_imgNewmont’s Malozemoff Technical Facility (MTF) in Englewood, Colorado, is home to state-of-the-art mineral technology and world-class expertise. It’s where Lauren Hafla, Director of Newmont’s Metallurgical Services (NMS), and a crew of engineers, geoscientists and chemists create value through “delivery of new and industry leading technology across the portfolio.”Hafla brings 18 years of experience in process engineering and operations to NMS management. Before making the move to the MTF Englewood location, she oversaw continuous improvement work as the Full Potential Manager at the Carlin mine, in Nevada. Productivity and improved costs were at the forefront of Hafla’s responsibilities, and she helped the site deliver $95 million in benefits in 2015 and 2016.Today, Hafla joins NMS in pursuit of cost-competitive operational support, as well as the distribution of best practices, across Newmont’s operations and projects portfolio. Specialised lab equipment helps her team deliver competitive advantage through innovation in processing, improved exploration, and optimised production and design. Internal “customers” are provided with world-class services at 30-40% of the cost of a traditional third-party laboratory, with Newmont retaining intellectual property.NMS researches and works in four technical pillars:Comminution: Reducing ore to minute particles or fragmentsFlotation: Separating mineral particles by treatment with chemicals in water, allowing minerals to adhere to air bubbles and rise to the surface for removalHydrometallurgy: The leaching of metallic compounds to form a solution from which they can be recoveredWater: Research that supports water management and treatment, including acid pit lake remediation, metal removal and tailings storageAs head of R&D projects, Hafla is the single point of accountability for retaining world-class talent and providing year-over-year technology advancements. She is helping expand NMS mineralogy capabilities through Laser Ablation, for example. This advancement provides enhanced detail to mineral and metal traits – at 80% of the traditional cost and a significant reduction in wait time for results.Other NMS projects have led to similar gains for Newmont’s processing practices. Testing of an alternative approach to flotation, which uses gas technology, saw an 8-12% ore recovery gain at Carlin’s Mill 5. In the hydrometallurgy space, NMS is in the final stages of adding automated bench scale continuous autoclave testing to secure scaling factors from bench-top work through to final plant design. Innovation and expertise in water treatment membrane technology, as well as developments in waste rock characterisation and modeling, have improved water management and support Newmont’s Global Water Strategy.In-house advancements like these represent only a fraction of the 25 priority R&D projects currently underway. Combined, they contribute to Newmont’s overarching commitment to sustainable and responsible mining. Hafla, who also partners with graduate programs and fit-for-purpose consortiums, says it’s one of the reasons Newmont is “recognised as a leader in the industry.”last_img read more

Youth would rather spend last 10 on phone than foodYouth would rather spend last 10 on phone than food

first_imgYouths would rather spend their last $10 to top up their phone credit than to buy food, a research on youth spending has found. According to the 2012 Mobile Youth Report, 80 per cent of youths surveyed believed being connected with their friends and family members is highly important. Australian company Boost Mobile agree with research findings, adding that youths spend a considerable amount of disposable income on their mobile phones. “We know our young customers don’t always have a lot to spend on their mobile, or want to commit for two years on a contract, so being on prepaid makes sense for them. They can budget easily and always know what they are spending,” said Oaul O’Neille, CEO of Boost Mobile. However, mobile phone usage among the youth market now extends far beyond the simple purpose of keeping in touch. According to the survey 60 per cent of youths are taking their mobiles to bed with them and the interacting via social media outweighs any face-to-face interaction.

Marvels Avengers game footage brings punch to San Diego ComicCon 2019Marvels Avengers game footage brings punch to San Diego ComicCon 2019

first_imgSquare Enix’s Marvels Avengers game got a longer look at San Diego Comic-Con. Square Enix One month after the mixed response Marvel’s Avengers received at E3 2019, the Square Enix game got a longer look from fans during the Marvel Games Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday.About 20 minutes of gameplay footage was shown, taking place during the same San Francisco disaster first seen at E3 2019 but also showing substantial gameplay with each of the characters. The footage was screened for Comic-Con attendees very early, as it’s not set to hit the internet until one week after Gamescom in August.Starting off with Thor, the thunder god uses God of War-style moves to dispatch baddies with his hammer. The guy sounds a bit arrogant. He rescued one civilian while saying something that sounded like “Lucky for you, I am mighty,” while the civilian just responds with “Thank you Thor.”Most interestingly was a moment where Thor was able to electrocute several armed men, lifting them off the ground at the same time  — reminiscent of a Jedi power from Star Wars.The demo in general emphasizes all the punches and explosions, including as gameplay shifts over to Tony Stark, who in this level is seen flying around a deteriorating Golden Gate Bridge and firing away at enemies flying around the bridge.The game then shifts to Bruce Banner as he leaps out of the plane that Black Widow is flying, transforming into Hulk for lots and lots of Hulk-smashing. Hulk’s gameplay includes grabbing enemies and using them as weapons, grabbing two and bashing them together and grabbing sections of the bridge to use as weaponry too.Following all that Hulk-smashing, the game shifts to Captain America, who swings his shield like a boomerang several times. And yes, while the characters still do not look like their MCU counterparts, this Cap does a roundabout kick that looked very inspired by Chris Evans’ performance from the films. 3:00 62 Photos Video Games TV and Movies Tags Comic-Con The very best cosplay we saw at Comic-Con 2019 Now playing: Watch this:center_img As Cap’s section ends, a scene shows a young woman who looks like Kamala Khan as she is accidentally knocked onto a vent that has green gas emanating from it. Maybe it’s a tease for Ms. Marvel? While that’s not confirmed yet, a definite addition to this prologue is the Taskmaster, driving into the game with a bomb.Black Widow’s section launches straight into a battle with Taskmaster, as she runs across the deteriorating bridge to catch him as he flies around. She leaps onto him, delivers a series of punches, and ultimately the two finish their fight on the bridge. Black Widow’s gameplay looks very similar to Lara Croft — which makes sense since Crystal Dynamics develops that series — with Natasha Romanov flipping multiple times and lighting up Taskmaster with plenty of bullets. Romanov also has a few extra tricks, including the ability to turn invisible and launch a charged-up, electrified punch as her finishing move in this battle.As their battle ends though, the same disaster seen in the E3 reveal takes place with the ship that held many civilians celebrating Avengers Day plummeting into the ocean. Also made clear at the panel is that, as of the prologue, Captain America’s character is considered dead. (But this is Marvel, he’ll probably come back.) The footage concludes with a montage of scenes that show the heroes fighting. Creative director Shawn Escayg noted the story will continue five years after the prologue that was seen.Also discussed was an element of the game in which players can customize the team that they play as. These included a Hulk wearing a suit, alternate colors for Iron Man’s costume and a viking-themed Thor.The single-player and multiplayer co-op game is set to be released May 15.

Watch the Minecraft documentary for free on Xbox Live this SaturdayWatch the Minecraft documentary for free on Xbox Live this Saturday

first_imgRegardless of whether you play games or not, it’s likely you’ve heard the name Minecraft spoken, seen it in news articles, game features, or even on TV. The game is a phenomenon, and there’s ongoing interest in both Minecraft and its creator Markus Persson, who is just as well known under the name of Notch.So it’s not surprising to find that someone has taken the time to create a Minecraft documentary entitled Minecraft: The Story of Mojang. 2 Player Productions is set to release it at the end of this week to buy or rent after receiving $210,297 of funding to make it through a Kickstarter campaign.If you missed that Kickstarter or are short of cash, don’t worry. If you live in the US, UK, France, Germany, Australia, or New Zealand, you can watch it for free via Xbox Live (with a Gold account) this Saturday, December 22.After that you’ll be able to purchase the DVD worldwide through Fangamer, or buy/rent a DRM-free version through Redux from December 23. Pricing has yet to be confirmed.As to what the documentary will cover, it seems to focus as much on Notch as the game itself and the Kickstarter preview video above gives you a good idea about what to expect. It follows him from last year when Minecraft got popular and he very quickly became a famous figure in the gaming community. It will also touch on his games studio Mojang, which continues to develop Minecraft for its growing player base.As indie success stories go, Notch is right up there with the best of them, and this is bound to be an interesting watch.last_img read more

Geek Pick Amazon Echo Wall Clock Tells Time With TechGeek Pick Amazon Echo Wall Clock Tells Time With Tech

first_img Geek Pick: Ikea Sonos Symfonisk Is A WiFi Bookshelf SpeakerGeek Pick: Fi Smart Dog Collar Sniffs Out Your Pet Stay on target We totally get it if you don’t feel super comfortable expanding Amazon’s influence to each and every intelligent object in your home. But of all the ways to expand your Alexa ecosystem the new Amazon Echo Wall Clock is one of the most innocuous, and at $29.99, one of the most affordable. Basically this clock lets you easily see Alexa timers.While some watches and clocks are known for their intricate jewelry-like beauty and craftsmanship, the Amazon Echo Wall Clock isn’t much more than a big 10-inch plastic circle with some numbers on it. It’s what you would expect from Bezos, who’s willing to take a loss on hardware if it means advancing other agendas like multiple Alexa products in every home.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>And the Amazon Echo Wall Clock needs those other Amazon products, specifically some kind of Echo device, to even function. It’s not a standalone product. So if you don’t already have an Echo factor that into the price, with the cheapest last-gen Echo Dots being about the price of the clock itself.It’ll take some time, and you might need your phone, but your Echo Wall Clock sets up by pairing to your Echo device through Bluetooth. One Echo can even power multiple clocks with room to spare for other accessories. And since everything is online, you don’t need to worry about manually adjusting clock hands to get the time right.But along with just telling time the Echo Wall Clock’s big gimmick is visualizing Alexa timers. You still need to speak into the Echo to set them, but now you can see timers tick down on the clock itself through glowing lights on the outer edge. Different combinations of lights and speeds convey timers over one hour as well as multiple timers. The visual aide makes it much easier to keep yourself on track compared to just waiting for an alarm to go off.For more on the Amazon Echo Wall Clock check out the extensive review on our sister site PCMag.com.

Last week, my co-worker Rami Tabari and I did just that.While fiddling with the 2018 MacBook’ Pro’s Force Touch trackpad (he’s not a fan), we noticed something peculiar: Every time we tapped the surface, the laptop turned on. At first, we thought the device hadn’t shut down correctly and that it was simply starting back up from an idle state.   MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

According to the company’s support page, only the 2018 MacBook Pro and the new MacBook Air (with the Retina display) can be turned on by pressing the trackpad or any key.You don’t need to do anything to enable the feature, either. And there doesn’t seem to be a way to turn it off, although I can’t think of a single good reason why you would want to use the trackpad or keyboard on a powered-down laptop.This feature isn’t reason enough to spend a premium on a new Apple laptop, but using this method sure beats searching for the power key or Touch ID button on the top right corner of the keyboard. Better yet, new Mac laptops also turn on when you open their lids, even if the devices aren’t connected to power. A new Mac will turn on, as well, when you connect it to a power adapter when the lid is open.Credit: Laptop MagApple 15-inch MacBook Pro (2018) Review – Full ReviewThe 5 Biggest Changes in the New MacBook ProMacBook Pro vs iPad Pro: Which Should You Buy?last_img read more
