Domestic violence happens 145 times every hour in the U.S. It affects more women than breast cancer, lung cancer and ovarian cancer combined. As part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, The Allstate Foundation has partnered with actress Rosario Dawson for the Purple Purse campaign to raise awareness of domestic abuse and the role finances play in helping survivors break free from violence.In its third year, The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse campaign has pledged to donate up to $350,000 to the YWCA for programs that help domestic violence survivors gain the financial knowledge and resources needed to live independently.“As an advocate to end violence against women, I have come to learn that the shame surrounding domestic violence is a barrier to talking about the issue,” said Dawson. “Purple Purse provides victims and those who support the cause with information and resources they need to take the necessary actions to break the vicious cycle with confidence.”This year, more than a thousand purple purses filled with domestic violence information will be distributed throughout the U.S. The goal is that each purse gets passed between family, friends, community leaders, celebrities, media and Allstate volunteers sparking important conversations and educating the public about the issue. The Allstate Foundation will donate $5 each time a purse is checked-in at PurplePurse.com. In addition, every time a virtual purple purse is shared at Facebook.com/Purple Purse, The Allstate Foundation will donate $5 to the YWCA.“One of every four women will live in fear of their spouse or intimate partner. We all know them. They are our family members, colleagues, friends and neighbors,” said Vicky Dinges, vice president of corporate responsibility at Allstate. “Purple Purse, an Allstate Foundation program, provides a less threatening way to get people talking about the issue and have those important conversations.”The purple purse is a symbol for the financial empowerment of domestic violence survivors. PurplePurse.com helps provide a safe place to learn about domestic violence. It includes conversation starters, ways to spot signs of abuse and steps to gain financial independence.“The YWCA is the nation’s largest provider of resources to empower women from all walks of life who face dangerous and even life-threatening situations at home,” said Dara Richardson-Heron, M.D., CEO of the YWCA USA. “We are so thankful to Allstate for providing us with generous funding through Purple Purse to help our local associations continue providing safety, support and education to the many women and children affected by domestic violence.”If you or someone you know needs immediate assistance, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799 SAFE (7233) or TTY 1-800-787-3224. read more

NEW YORK — It’s not just big oil and power companies that investors are pushing to do better on the environment.In the next few weeks, Amazon shareholders will vote on a proposal made by one of their own to push the company to describe how it’s curbing its use of fossil fuels. In California, investors of Ross Stores are asking the retailer of off-price clothing to set goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. And in Kentucky, Yum Brands shareholders are pushing for an annual report on what the parent of KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell is doing about deforestation caused by its suppliers.As the earth gets warmer, shareholders with the environment in mind are widening their focus and increasingly targeting consumer businesses, internet companies and others that don’t first come to mind as big polluters.Every year shareholders try to place proposals on the agenda for their companies’ annual meetings. Five years ago, only 33% of all proposals related to climate change were aimed at companies outside the energy and utility industries. So far this year, 60% of such proposals are targeted at companies outside energy and utilities, according to ISS Analytics.“Climate change will affect all industries,” said Kosmas Papadopoulos, executive director at ISS Analytics, the data intelligence arm of Institutional Shareholder Services, “and I think we’ll see more in other sectors.”Once limited to a niche group of mutual funds that simply promise not to own tobacco or gun stocks, sustainable and responsible investing has grown increasingly mainstream and more comprehensive in its decision making. These investors see additional profits to be made — and losses to be avoided — by considering how the world’s changing climate affects companies, as well as how those companies are affecting the environment.Consider PG&E, which some investors call the first climate change bankruptcy. It filed for Chapter 11 protection earlier this year due to potential liabilities piling up following devastating wildfires in northern California.Famed value investor Jeremy Grantham, who correctly predicted the dot-com and housing bubble crashes, sees climate change investing offering decades of growth. His firm, GMO, launched a climate change fund in 2017. Competitors around the industry have been launching their own funds that value companies’ approaches to environmental, social and corporate governance issues, which are known in the industry as “ESG funds.”Sustainable, responsible and impact investing currently accounts for $1 of every $4 invested under professional management for a total of $12 trillion, according to US SIF. That’s double the proportion from 2010, when it was roughly $1 of every $8.“You’re definitely seeing investors ask for it, but you’re also seeing companies wanting to talk a lot more about it, in particular on climate change issues,” said Peter Reali, senior director of responsible investing at Nuveen, the asset management arm of TIAA. “We have meetings or phone calls with hundreds of companies annually, and boards are really interested in what investors think about this stuff.”Of course, most shareholder proposals pushing for environmental action fail to pass. Company managements typically recommend voting against them, with many saying they’re already paying increased attention to the environment.At Starbucks’ annual meeting in March, for example, shareholders voted against a request for a report on progress in recycling cups and reducing waste that ends up in the ocean. When making its recommending against the proposal, Starbucks’ management said that it has already committed to eliminating plastic straws, among other sustainability moves.But the proposal lost by a five-to-four margin, which may be a stronger signal than it sounds.“It’s very difficult to achieve majority support on shareholder proposals, even for some of the issues where you may have seen consensus in the market,” said Papadopoulos. “Anything above 30%, we generally consider as significant.”Such levels of support are becoming more common, as shareholders increasingly vote in favour of environmental proposals. Nearly half of all such proposals reached at least 30% support last year. That’s more than double the rate of a decade earlier. So far this year, the rate has been even higher, at 60%, according to ISS Analytics.Not only have investors cast a wider net for companies, they also are pushing companies to set specific goals for measuring environmental impact.Consider Flowserve, a company that makes pumps and valves. On May 23, shareholders will vote on a proposal for the company to set goals for greenhouse gas emissions, taking into account the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. President Donald Trump pledged last year to withdraw the United States from the agreement.Flowserve is recommending that investors vote against the proposal, saying that it already writes an annual sustainability report and that disclosing strict emissions goals “would not provide significant incremental benefits” to the company, shareholders or the environment.But the biggest successes for environmentally minded investors may not take place at shareholder meetings at all. They may come, instead, during the conversations happening privately between shareholders and companies.Last month, for example, Green Century Capital Management said it withdrew a proposal made to Royal Caribbean Cruises related to food waste management. The cruise operator agreed to document annually how much food waste it has and what it’s doing to reduce it.That’s why some investors see withdrawals as just as successful, if not more, as wining proposals. So far this year, 68% of all shareholder proposals related to climate change have been withdrawn, excluding those that are still pending.“We tend to have conversations off the record, so to speak,” said Fran Tuite, a portfolio manager at Faripointe Capital who helps manage its ESG Equity fund. “I think that’s how a lot of change is being influenced.”Stan Choe, The Associated Press read more
Alagiri today met party chief M Karunanidhi and informed him about his meeting with the Premier and Sonia Gandhi. Party sources said this was Alagiri’s method of protesting against the fact that he had not been consulted about the DMK’s decision to quit the UPA government. Sources close to Alagiri said he heard for the first time of this news on television channels. The DMK’s pullout was allegedly fashioned by Alagiri’s younger brother and political rival, MK Stalin. Top leaders of the DMK party in Tamil Nadu are scheduled to meet in Chennai tomorrow to castigate the the Indian Cental government for not taking a strong enough stand against Sri Lanka over its alleged war crimes. However, MK Alagiri may not attend the executive council’s session, sources have told NDTV.Earlier this week, Alagiri had separately handed over his resignation letter to the Prime Minister while four other DMK ministers had also resigned the same day. Sources say at tomorrow’s meet the emergency executive committee will deliberate its future course of action and its strategy to be adopted against the Centre and the Congress. The meet will also justify the withdrawal of the party support to the Centre, sources add.Sources also say that around 12 to 15 resolutions may be passed in the meet. One of them will ask India to stop the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) at Colombo later this year, and if that meet is held then India should abstain from it. read more
“The situation with regard to avian influenza in the world is that in 2006 we did see more than 30 countries reporting outbreaks. The disease didn’t spread quite so profoundly in Africa as we had expected it might… but still the amount of viral outbreaks in 2006 were many greater than any previous year,” Dr. David Nabarro, the Senior UN System Coordinator for Avian and Human Influenza told reporters in New York.“Unfortunately the virus continues to affect humans: there are 256 people known to be affected, 151 dying and the rate of human death is still distressingly high, with Indonesia increasingly becoming the country which causes all of us… very great concern.” There have been 43 deaths out of 53 human cases so far in Indonesia this year, a significant proportion of the 73 human deaths recorded worldwide since the start of 2006, the UN World Health Organization (WHO) reports, noting that the Asian region has been hardest hit by the virus, which spreads through contact with infected birds.However experts fear that the H5N1 virus could mutate, gaining the ability to pass from person to person and in a worst case scenario unleashing a deadly human pandemic. Dr. Nabarro warned that it will remain a “major animal health issue” for years.“We think it’s going to stay that way for five years perhaps 10 years to come because the virus is highly pathogenic yet at the same time can seem to survive in certain communities of birds without symptoms… and secondly it does seem to be spread by a combination of wild birds and trade.”Dr. Nabarro, who has just returned from a fact-finding trip to Australia, Cambodia, Indonesia and Myanmar, said in order to deal with such a long-term problem, which has already forced the culling of hundreds of millions of poultry to curb the disease’s spread, it will mean changes to commercial bird rearing and also better preparedness to deal with outbreaks.Already such changes are taking place, he said, praising countries responses to the disease, including better preparation and improved veterinarian services; however more needed to be done, especially in Indonesia.“Indonesia has the virus probably in 30 out of 33 provinces… now Indonesia has had to move fast to completely redesign its animal health services… the Government certainly is committed together with the UN to making this happen but… still there’s such a lot to be done.”Stressing the need for continuous vigilance, Dr. Nabarro also highlighted the importance of being better prepared for any human outbreaks worldwide and noted in particular a call by the WHO today for more action and funding to prepare for this and other pandemic influenzas.“We’ve seen big efforts by the World Health Organization (WHO) working with Governments to make sure that we’ve got a containment system in place and WHO today releasing its Global Action Plan for vaccine development, so that if a pandemic does appear we’ve got a better supply of vaccines in place to deal with this,” he said. The new plan, based on advice from more than 120 immunization and other experts, warns that the world is far short of the amount of vaccine needed to counter an outbreak of pandemic influenza should it break out and it urges immediate action to remedy this.“We are presently several billion doses short of the amount of pandemic influenza vaccine we would need to protect the global population. This situation could lead to a public health crisis,” said Dr Marie-Paule Kieny, Director, WHO Initiative for Vaccine Research. “The Global Action Plan sets the course for what needs to be done, starting now, to increase vaccine production capacity and close the gap. In just three to five years we could begin to see results that could save many lives in case of a pandemic.” read more
The late Nelson Mandela embodied many of the ideals of the United Nations, so it is no wonder that the life and work of the former South African President and champion of peace are an enduring source of inspiration for many of the world body’s staff, beginning with the Secretary-General himself.UN chief Ban Ki-moon, who met Mr. Mandela in 2009, has recalled: “When I thanked him for his lifelong work and contribution to ending apartheid and to peace and stability and humanity, he refused to take the compliment.”Instead, Mr. Mandela stressed that there were many hundreds of heroes, so many people – some known, some unknown – who had helped him, and who deserved just as much praise and perhaps even more. “I was moved, deeply moved, and he still gives me inspiration as I work as Secretary-General of United Nations,” said Mr. Ban.Some UN staff members had long-running relationships with Mr. Mandela, or “Madiba”, as he was affectionately known. Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Executive Director of UN Women, said she felt the pain of Madiba’s passing as she shared with the UN News Centre a conversation the two had when they began working together on the executive government. She said she told Mr. Mandela “I have a lot to learn.” His response was: “I also wasn’t trained to be a president, but remember, I’d been a prisoner for a long time.” Recalling his “amazing way to make you feel strong,” Ms. Mlambo-Ngcuka she said that she knew then, “I just had to rise to the occasion.” “I feel I owe… many of my blessings to his leadership,” Ms. Mlambo-Ngcuka said, adding she would always be grateful that “Madiba took a chance on me.”“People were actually wishing he would live forever, myself included,” she said.“Nelson Mandela inspired countless people around the world,” Ms. Mlambo-Ngcuka said in separate statement. “For us all, Madiba means freedom.”Mr. Mandela’s former chief legal advisor, Nicholas Haysom, now the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General at the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), said, “I was struck by the grace, charm and gratitude he displayed to even the most humble workers around him,” Mr. Haysom said. “Whether a commoner or a queen,” he treated everyone equally. Mr. Haysom, observed that people, particularly in conflict countries where he has worked, sometime complained bitterly that their own nation “lacks a Madiba – a person who is big enough to unite their country and put it on course.”Commenting on Mr. Mandela’s death, Mr. Haysom, a South African, said he felt “both relief, because he had been ill for so long, but still unmistakeably a sense of loss,” adding that he was “always conscious of both my country’s debt and the debt of everyone everywhere towards this man both for his dedicated commitment to his principles, as well as his capacity to bring people together.”UN Radio Producer Derrick Mbatha is from South Africa and from1977 to 1979 worked for Radio Freedom of the African National Congress (ANC) in Angola. In September 1979 he joined UN Radio in New York as part of the team producing programmes that covered the Organization’s activities against apartheid.“I felt a strong connection to Mr. Mandela through the struggle we shared to rid South Africa of apartheid,” said Mr. Mbatha. The United Nations became a partner in the struggle against apartheid in 1950, when the General Assembly declared that “a policy of ‘racial segregation’ (apartheid) is necessarily based on doctrines of racial discrimination”. Ten years later, on 1 April 1960, the Security Council – in its first action on South Africa – adopted a resolution deploring the policies and actions of the South African Government in the wake of the killing of 69 peaceful African protesters in Sharpeville by the police on 21 March. The Council called on the Government to abandon its policies of apartheid and racial discrimination. The Organization remained engaged on the issue, including when, on 30 July 1992, with the violence escalating and political negotiations faltering, then-Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali announced that he would send, in response to a request from Mr. Mandela himself, a small group of UN monitors to the country. The United Nations Observer Mission in South Africa was established by the Security Council on 17 August 1992. South Africa’s first democratically elected Government, headed by Nelson Mandela, took office in May 1994, and two months later, the General Assembly approved the credentials of the South African delegation and removed the item of apartheid from its agenda. The Security Council removed the question of South Africa from its agenda on 27 June. Mr. Mandela addressed the Assembly as leader of the country on 3 October 1994. Recalling how moving it was to hear Madiba speak at the General Assembly, Mr. Mbatha said:“Mandela was everybody’s hero.” read more
Everett Golson, the quarterback who helped lead the University of Notre Dame football squad to a 12-1 record in 2012 as a redshirt freshman, was suspended for the fall semester due to “Poor academic judgment.”Golson’s suspension had nothing to do with the football team, rather the University itself.“I have been informed by the University of Notre Dame that due to my poor academic judgment that I have been suspended from the University for the 2013 Fall Term,” Golson said. “I take full responsibility for my poor choices and will do all that is asked of me to regain the trust of my family, friends, teammates, coaches and the entire Notre Dame community.”Despite his setback, the footballer seems to be in good spirits, leaving little doubt about rejoining the University of Notre Dame next year.“I can tell you this. I will be returning, I look forward to returning in the spring. That’s pretty much it.”With Golson gone, the ‘Fighting Irish’ are left with Tommy Rees as its best option. Rees, a senior, has thrown for more than 4,000 yards and 34 touchdowns during his career. read more
FRENCH TROOPS KILLED 19 Islamist militants during an army operation in the desert in northern Mali today according to a French military source.The violence comes with Malians due to vote on Sunday in a second round of parliamentary polls supposed to mark the west African nation’s first steps to recovery after it was plunged into chaos by a military coup in March last year.“A French military operation is underway north of Timbuktu. French troops are facing a pretty determined group. At the moment, 19 members of this group have been killed,” the Bamako-based source said.“The French troops haven’t reported any deaths or injuries. We are in control of the situation,” the source said, without specifying which Islamist group the militants were part of.The military coup in Bamako opened the way for Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and other Islamist groups to seize the vast north of the country, where they ran cities under their brutal version of sharia law for nine months.Former colonial power France intervened in January to drive out the radicals.After several months of calm, with French and African troops overseeing security, jihadist groups launched fresh attacks in September, leaving a dozen civilians, Malians and African troops dead. Malians check voter listings as polling stations. Pic: Jerome DelayOperation HydraFrench, UN and Malian forces launched Operation Hydra in late October after being taken aback by the renewed violence, after two Chadian UN peacekeepers and a civilian were killed in the northern town of Tessalit.The goal of Hydra was “to put pressure on any terrorist movements to avoid their resurgence”, the French military said, indicating that about 1,500 troops were involved, including some 600 French, 600 Malians and 300 UN soldiers.Mali is also battling the latest separatist rebellion launched by the Tuareg, traditionally a federation of nomad tribes that rebelled in Mali and Niger in the 1960s and the 1990s, and are seeking some kind of self-determination for the country’s north, a swathe of desert the size of Texas they call Azawad.The National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad (MNLA) ambushed soldiers as they were on patrol at a market near the border with Niger on 8 November.The clash followed three attacks by the MNLA on soldiers in the rebel stronghold of Kidal in September, after the militants pulled out of peace talks with the government, dealing a blow to hopes of a durable peace in the troubled nation.The collapse of the talks led to an upsurge in violence which saw two French journalists shot dead on November 2 during a kidnapping in Kidal by AQIM.The chief suspect in the kidnapping is a Tuareg thought to have associated with both AQIM and the mainly secular MNLA.© – AFP 2013Read: Two French journalists have been killed in Mali >Read: Ireland to give €700,000 to war-torn Mali > read more
Mental Floss’s December issue features two firsts—the Mental Floss 500, a list of well-known movers and shakers in culture, science and the humanities, and a sponsored takeover by Toyota. Toyota settled on the 500 list as its primary real estate for the native format and after several iterations, the Mental Floss team came up with a series of 1/3 horizontal and vertical strips that gradually revealed the Toyota branding as the reader progressed through the feature well. The magazine has for a while now offered content marketing services to clients, and the brand’s editorial team is very involved in that process. So involved, in fact, that no one defected or led a mass exodus when the Toyota campaign was sold when the issue was about to be put to bed. The edit team approved and got to work on the layout. “They redid the upfronts and reworked the edit package and while the edit design team was working on that, the marketing team was working with the Toyota marketing team and going back and forth on the creative,” says Mitchell. That plan, however, meant the list and the front-of-book had to be re-mapped, says Mitchell. “Because we’re small and nimble I could sit with the editor and say, ‘What if we ripped apart the magazine? Would that be cool?’” The success of the issue smoothed over any last-minute changes to edit and ads. Mitchell says the takeover eclipsed a normal issue’s revenue by 30-40 percent, and Bechert and her team will be pursuing more ideas like this in 2016. But the takeover isn’t simply a wholesale buyout of prominent ad placements. Toyota wanted its creative integrated within the 500 list and Mental Floss reconfigured a popular digital content franchise for print to make it all work. The 1/3 ads were modeled after the Mental Floss Amazing Fact Generator, a digital content feature that spits out random facts at the click of the mouse. Toyota was promoting its Tacoma pickup and wanted to appeal to the armchair adventurer—a segment that Mental Floss has identified in its readership—so the facts zeroed in on desert adventure and other extreme sports themes. Tara Mitchell, Mental Floss’s vice president of marketing, sat down with the edit team to figure out how to overhaul the issue’s layout to incorporate Toyota’s marketing vision. “We started with our general magazine format and figured there were 12 slots for full-page advertisements,” says Mitchell. “But Toyota didn’t want to do it that way.” In all, Toyota ran 15 placements within the Mental Floss 500 list feature (and four full-page ads, including covers 2, 3 and 4). Each strip, which features a fact such as “Bold fact No. 8265: The earliest bike helmets were made of cork,” is discretely slugged as “Advertisement.” Toyota branding doesn’t appear until the ninth ad, where all we see is a Tacoma tailgate. By the eleventh strip, we see more Tacomas speeding through a desert scene along with the same motorcycle riders featured in the series of fractionals. And by the 14th and 15th ads, the more traditional messaging is combined with the “Bold Facts.” “That was an unfortunate side effect of the plan,” she says. “But we made sure they were taken care of in other ways. We put some in the January/February issue, others were moved to digital. There were no clients beating down my door. We made good by them, no one got the short end of the stick with this.” But edit wasn’t the only group that had to readjust to the takeover. Bechert says advertisers had to be moved out of the issue to accommodate the incoming Toyota ads. At the end of the day, Bechert and Mitchell feel like they’ve found a good line to walk between reader and marketer. “There is this belief in the marketplace that you either put the reader first or the advertiser,” says Bechert. “At Mental Floss, we think we can put the reader first, but simultaneously meet the advertiser’s needs. The content we use with Toyota works for our reader and absolutely checked all of Toyota’s boxes.” Despite closing on the deal so late in the issue’s cycle, Mental Floss publisher Molly Bechert says the process went smoothly with Toyota. read more
Dan Cohen AUTHOR More than 20 defense communities have committed to expanding local resources for military caregivers in conjunction with the Hidden Heroes Cities program, one of the initiatives introduced as part of the newly launched Hidden Heroes campaign.San Diego became the first Hidden Heroes City this summer, passing a resolution and forming a steering committee made up of public and private organizations to assess and address the unmet needs of those caring for wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans. Since then, 53 cities have joined San Diego in pledging to become military caregiver-friendly cities. Some cities are partnering with their county or a neighboring city to create region-wide initiatives, according to a fact sheet.One goal of the initiative is for local leaders to identify military caregivers residing in their cities.On Tuesday at the U.S. Capitol, the Elizabeth Dole Foundation officially launched the Hidden Heroes campaign, a multifaceted effort to highlight the tremendous challenges and long-term needs of the nation’s military caregivers and to inspire Americans to take action.“If we want to be a nation that truly cares for those who have borne the battle, we must also be a nation that cares for our caregivers,” said Tom Hanks, the campaign’s chairman, as he called on elected leaders, corporations, nonprofits and individuals to pitch in.Family members or friends step into the role of the military caregiver for the first time with little or no training, managing and balancing multiple injuries and illnesses over a lifetime of care, often in isolation and without a support system. Hidden Heroes is dedicated to bringing public attention to this crisis and motivating civic engagement to better connect military caregivers to resources and support, according to a press release. read more
Tahsina Rushdir Luna. File PhotoTahsina Rushdir Luna, the wife of missing BNP leader M Ilias Ali, on Sunday alleged that she was obstructed by immigration officers at Shahjalal Airport from going to the UK for joining her son’s graduation ceremony.Talking to UNB, Luna said she along with her two children went to the Airport in the morning to go to London in a Biman Bangladesh Airlines flight at 10:00am.”As I went to the immigration after collecting my boarding pass, the officials there told me to give my passport and other documents for examination. After keeping me waiting for around one and a half hours, they told me they can only allow my children, not me, to go to the UK,” she said.As she wanted to know the reason, Luna said an immigration official said, “We can’t permit you to leave the country for the sake of the state’s security.”Later, she together with her daughter Saiyara Nawal and son Labib Sarar returned home.Luna said she was supposed to attend her eldest son Abrar Ilias graduation ceremony at the University of West England, Bristol next week as his guardian.Ilias Ali, the then organising secretary of opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party’s (BNP), went missing along with his driver, Ansar Ali, on the midnight of 17 April, 2012.Since then, BNP has been blaming the security agencies for his mysterious disappearance, an allegation denied by the government. read more
Elon Musk’s Cheeky ‘Nuke Mars!’ Post Is Taking Over TwitterSpaceX’s Starhopper Is Ready for Its Biggest Hop Test Stay on target SpaceX is making moves in the internet satellite sector: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) cleared the private spaceflight firm’s revised plan that would fly over 1,500 of its Starlink satellites at a lower orbit of approximately 342 miles.This important step places the firm on track for a potential Starlink launch in May, Engadget reported. According to SpaceX, operating satellites at a lower orbit would result in decreased latency by cutting down transmission time to 15 milliseconds, and SpaceX would get the job done with 16 fewer satellites, which could help limit the ongoing issue of space junk.AdChoices广告“This approval underscores the FCC’s confidence in SpaceX’s plans to deploy its next-generation satellite constellation and connect people around the world with reliable and affordable broadband service,” SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell said in a statement to The Verge.Despite this positive update for SpaceX, some other companies, including Kepler Communications and OneWeb were reportedly not on board with SpaceX’s revised satellite plan and said the Starlink satellites might interfere with their own satellites in space. Despite these concerns, the FCC didn’t think that the Starlink satellites would generate “significant” interference or risk collisions.First two Starlink demo satellites, called Tintin A & B, deployed and communicating to Earth stations pic.twitter.com/TfI53wHEtz— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 22, 2018Last year, SpaceX sent its first Starlink internet satellites into orbit during its PAZ Mission, GeekWire reported. “Starlink,” also known as a constellation of satellites, aims to provide inexpensive, low-latency broadband internet service and provide connectivity to those “least served” by other networks, according to a tweet from SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.If anyone is curious, the name was inspired by The Fault in Our Stars— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 21, 2018SpaceX’s Starlink initiatives come on the heels of other internet satellite efforts. Earlier this month, federal filings indicated that Amazon intends to deploy more than 3,000 satellites in low Earth orbit in the future to increase internet access across the globe. Amazon’s proposed effort would include a fleet of 3,236 satellites, which aim to cover areas where approximately 95 percent of people live on the planet and boost nations’ access to broadband internet.More on Geek.com:Amazon Will Launch 3,236 Satellites to Offer Broadband Internet From SpaceSpaceX Crew Dragon Test ‘Anomaly’ May Delay Future FlightsSpaceX Loses Falcon Heavy’s Center Booster Due to Rough Seas read more

Its existence is usually caused by particular types of cloud formations, thunderstorms, flying over mountain ranges or through jet streams.Despite being an unsettling nuisance for both passengers and crew, aircraft are specifically designed to be able to withstand significant amounts of bluster and instability, with pilots utilising many features to deal with the turbulence, including employing slower flying speeds and altering the aircraft’s altitude. There are however some steps passengers can take to help minimise the chance of experiencing in-flight bumpiness: Are you seated comfortably? Experts suggest that opting for seats situated over the plane’s wings, and nearest to the aircraft’s centre of gravity may minimise the effects of turbulence. During unsettled conditions, the bumpiest ride is likely to be had by passengers seated closest to the tail of the plane – so give these seats a miss if jerky journeys are a particular concern. Stephen Slater of the Honourable Company of Air Pilots recommends sitting in business or first class as you normally have more space around you, and this allows your eye line and sense of balance to attune itself better to movement, therefore passengers might feel less queasy.

This is due to reduced wind speeds and the fact that thunderstorms tend to dissipate overnight. A smooth (and sleepy) night-flight may therefore be a better option for nervy flyers. Big planes, smaller bumps Stephen Slater also highlights that the newer and bigger aircraft are, the better. In recent years, the manufacturers of airliners have expended a great deal of effort in developing control systems and aerodynamic characteristics to enhance their aircrafts’ ride in turbulent conditions. Normally the bigger the aircraft, then better they perform, with the Airbus A380 and the Boeing 747 the leaders in this respect. Route planner Airlines plan their routes to both take advantage of prevailing winds and to avoid known areas of air turbulence, however a lot of turbulence is at lower levels, caused by convection as the sun warms patches of ground beneath and also by the effects wind blowing over of high ground causing waves. Lower level flights such as short-haul, and intercity flights with turboprop aircraft which don’t climb to higher levels are therefore more vulnerable to turbulence. Stephen Slater also highlights that long haul routes that fly over hot areas such as India or the Middle East, might also be affected by convective turbulence from the sun heating the ground and so it can be beneficial to plan a long-haul flight to fly over these areas in the early morning before the sun gets to work. He also advises that routes over water generally suffer less air turbulence than over land, however there can be turbulence when crossing the Atlantic due to the jet-stream as well as some other ocean areas including the west coast of southern Africa and the Indian Ocean between India and Myanmar/Malaysia. Stephen Slater of the Honourable Company of Air Pilots is both a pilot and a frequent flyer with a wide range of airlines around the world. He has combined his own personal knowledge with the experience of a number of airline professionals.

League Season 5 has been inspirational especially considering the team’s last-place finish in season 4 They are now on the cusp of making their maiden Pro Kabaddi final when they take on Patna Pirates in the second qualifier in Chennai Barring an exceptional third edition where a bevy of injuries forced them to settle for a third-place finish the Warriors have always been a part of the bottom half of the table They could manage to win only three of their 14 matches last season and it was with this form that the Warriors made their way into the ongoing 12-week long caravan style tournament File image of Bengal Warriors vs Patna Pirates Image courtesy: PKL official website On paper the Warriors might not be the strongest squad They lack heavyweights and ‘fancy’ stars to pull in the crowds However their run so far exemplifies the fact that a strong team-effort compensates for the absence of ‘stars’ The Warriors performed throughout the season as a well-oiled machine that worked like clockwork Under a new coach a new captain and a completely revamped side the Warriors worked that extra mile by starting their training camps earlier than the other teams Even if the others didn’t the Warriors definitely fancied their chances of reaching the play-off stage It seems that the underdogs tag has worked in their favour as theyhave flown under the radar to reach this far in the tournament This progress is a testimony to their hard work as they got to their drawing board and chalked out a clear strategy right from the time of auctions While the team retained the services of

next three editions due to personal reasons continued from where he left off to become the most effective raider for the Warriors this year with 173 points One of the smartest moves by the Warriors was to buy Surjeet Singh and make him the captain of a relatively young and inexperienced side Surjeet one of the best defenders in the country had to a lot of times double up as an all-rounder due to lack of resources However he has led from the front to marshall his troops effectively and along with his partner-in-crime Ran Singh has been the defence mainstay for the Warriors However it has not been all to easy for the Warriors as they have been made to work hard for their results but that in turn showcases their never give-up attitude Out of the 11 matches won by the Kolkata-based outfit this season they have not won a single match with a huge margin barring a match against UP Yoddha They have also been involved in the most number of ties this season Their ability to take the match till till the end and coming out triumphant has held them in good stead so far in this tournament Surjeet in an earlier interview withFirstpost had said "We want to be the first Bengal Warriors team
