The Government, in an effort to reduce schools’ dependency on the importation of fossil fuels to create energy, will spend approximately $120 million on the implementation of projects in schools under the Solar Systems Project.Details have been outlined in the 2018/2019 Estimates of Expenditure, tabled in the House of Representatives on February 15.Statistics have shown that an estimated annual average of 20.4 million barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) were imported during the 2010-2015 period for use in the electricity, manufacturing and transportation sectors, with an average import value of US$1.9 billion. The Solar Systems Project aims to reduce this number through the consumption by schools.According to the Estimates, the National Education Trust Limited (NET) will be responsible for the implementation of the project, which will provide alternative energy, including solar, from photovoltaic systems to schools across the island in an effort to lessen the dependence on the Jamaica Public Service Company and reduce the current electricity bill at schools by 40 to 70 per cent.Some of the targets under the project include complete retrofitting, upgrade and repair to roofs with solar systems at schools that have already been assessed; the payment of fees to the Development Bank of Jamaica (DBJ) of approximately $15 million, and the development of Business Case and Cabinet Approval to proceed to Transaction Stage of the Public-Private Partnership (PPP).The NET, which is responsible for the implementation of the projects on behalf of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, is a Government of Jamaica company, which is limited by guarantee and is a registered charitable organisation that mobilises financial and quality resources for schools in Jamaica.
CALGARY – The mother of a terminally ill Calgary boy who requires around-the-clock care says she is being hassled by neighbours over street parking.Melissa Huitema has a team of nurses and other professionals who take care of five-year-old Cade at home. She, her husband and three boys live on a suburban street where the single-family homes are spaced tightly together.Street parking is a “free for all,” she said. No one has driveways and garages are in the laneway.She said there have been confrontations with neighbours over the parade of care staff who park by the home.“I’ve had people come to my door and tell me that I needed to move the vehicle or they were going to hit it. I’ve had people leave notes on the vehicle asking not to park here, park there. I’ve had people saying ‘Can you not park in front of my house?’ when I’m walking out with my kids,” she said.“I’m trying to deal with other things. There’s kind of a lot going on.”She said many of those complaining are aware of Cade’s condition.“It’s just infuriating.”The Calgary Parking Authority says it doesn’t comment on specific cases, but says the street space in front of residential homes is public.The family has a wheelchair accessible spot in front of the house, but it’s open to anyone with a permit and is sometimes taken up.Huitema declined to say in which neighbourhood she lives. She said she doesn’t want to call out her neighbours or worsen tensions with them.She just wants people in general to have more empathy.“We need to be more aware of what people are going through,” she said. “You need to take a step back and think about your actions.”Huitema said she has many supportive neighbours who will leave parking spots open when they can.Cade, her middle son, has Krabbe disease which affects the nervous system. Set to turn six in November, he has lived well past the typical life expectancy of two.“Cade is completely aware of what’s going on around him, but his body is failing him,” said Huitema, who is a registered nurse.He takes 20 medications a day. He cannot swallow and is fed through a tube. His airway constantly needs to be suctioned so he does not develop pneumonia.A nurse cares for him from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., when Huitema takes over. Then, around 11 p.m., another nurse comes for the night shift.There are also often physiotherapists and occupational therapists. Social workers sometimes come by, too.Developmental specialists help Cade learn. This week, they were doing crafts and science experiments with him in the home.“They’ve taught him how to communicate. He looks to his right for yes, his left for no,” said Huitema. “He makes decisions on his own. He picks his books. The nurses even let him pick out what he wants to wear for the day.”Mezaun Lakha-Evin, with the Cerebral Palsy Association in Alberta, said she was flabbergasted when she heard what Huitema is dealing with.Lakha-Evin’s 29-year-old daughter, who has severe cerebral palsy, lives with her and there are constantly caregivers in her home.“Everyone in my area is very aware of the copious comings and goings of people and it’s never been an issue,” she said.She knows of some cases where a family has circulated a note to neighbours explaining why there are so many visitors. She said it’s not up to the city to step in when there’s a conflict.“You cannot mandate compassion.”
BEVERLY HILLS – Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney biopic “Vice” has swooped in to lead nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards with six nods.The film narrowly edged Bradley Cooper’s tear-jerking revival “A Star Is Born,” the interracial road-trip drama “Green Book” and the period romp “The Favourite.”Few saw the resounding success of “Vice” coming. The Annapurna Pictures release, starring Christian Bale as Dick Cheney, is a highly critical portrait of the former vice-president. It was nominated in the Globes’ best comedy or musical film category.Lady Gaga and Cooper both received acting nominations for “A Star is Born,” as did “Green Book’s” Viggo Mortensen.
WASHINGTON — The Trump administration on Thursday sanctioned two Chinese shipping companies suspected of helping North Korea evade sanctions — the first targeted actions taken against Pyongyang since its nuclear negotiations with the U.S. in Hanoi last month ended without agreement.“The maritime industry must do more to stop North Korea’s illicit shipping practices,” Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton tweeted. “Everyone should take notice and review their own activities to ensure they are not involved in North Korea’s sanctions evasion.”The White House says the sanctions are evidence that the U.S. is maintaining pressure on North Korea in an effort to coax its leader, Kim Jong Un, to give up his nuclear weapons program.The Treasury Department sanctioned Dalian Haibo International Freight Co. Ltd. and Liaoning Danxing International Forwarding Co. Ltd. for using deceptive methods to circumvent international and U.S. sanctions and the U.S. commitment to implementing existing U.N. Security Council resolutions.Treasury, in co-ordination with the State Department and the U.S. Coast Guard, also updated a North Korea shipping advisory, adding dozens of vessels thought to be doing ship-to-ship transfers with North Korean tankers or exported North Korean coal in violation of sanctions.Two senior administration officials, who briefed reporters only on condition of anonymity to discuss U.S. policy on North Korea, said illegal ship-to-ship transfers that violate U.S. and international sanctions have increased and not all countries, including China, are implementing the restrictions. They said the deceptive practices include disabling or manipulating ship identification systems, repainting the names on vessels and falsifying cargo documents.Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement that fully implementing the U.N. resolutions is key to getting Kim to give up his nuclear weapons program. “Treasury will continue to enforce our sanctions, and we are making it explicitly clear that shipping companies employing deceptive tactics to mask illicit trade with North Korea expose themselves to great risk,” Mnuchin said.Deb Riechmann, The Associated Press
28 April 2009The United Nations humanitarian chief warned today that Sri Lanka faces what amounts to two distinct crises, as he toured camps for people who fled fighting in the country’s north between Government troops and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). “There are still tens of thousands of people trapped on a small patch of territory in the north, with the LTTE refusing to let them leave, and with fighting continuing,” said Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs John Holmes.“The second crisis is the swollen camps that are filling up with 200,000 people who fled the fighting, many in very poor condition, with more likely on the way soon,” he added.Mr. Holmes, who is also UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, met today with President Mahinda Rajapakse and reiterated his concerns over the level of civilian casualties, as well as the urgent need to assist the tens of thousands of civilians still trapped in the conflict zone, particularly with food aid and medical supplies.“Given the fact that the LTTE has refused to let these people go, I hope that we will be given more humanitarian access to the zone,” said Mr. Holmes. “We believe that there are critical levels of hunger, and large numbers of people needing medical treatment.”The top UN humanitarian official added that he welcomed the Government’s announcement of a scale-down of combat operations and a cessation of heavy weapons fire, because that should reduce civilian casualties. However, he said that in the light of past experience, the key was implementation in full of what had been announced, and he expressed great concern at initial reports of continued shelling.He also raised with the Government the issue of the 13 UN staff members currently being prevented from leaving camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs), despite repeated promises they would be released.According to the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), reports indicate that camps and hospitals treating wounded civilians are struggling to cope with the outflow of civilians. More than 100,000 people have escaped from the combat zone over the past week.Mr. Holmes is allocating a further $10 million dollars from the UN Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) to assist the relief efforts. Meanwhile, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has confirmed that some 160,000 people have been displaced by fighting into the Government controlled areas, of which more than 140,000 are being accommodated in 32 sites in Vavuniya, another 11,000 in Jaffna and some 5,000 in Trincomalee.“UNHCR staff on the ground report that the present situation in the north is critical,” the agency’s spokesperson, William Spindler, told reporters in Geneva. “The conditions at the sites have reached breaking point, placing severe strains on the humanitarian services available.”The agency says that people without shelter are staying out in the open in the blazing sun and sweltering heat. It has also received “persistent” reports of physical assaults on men and women fleeing into Government-controlled areas. “We are reminding the Government of its responsibilities towards the civilian population and to ensure the protection of its own citizens,” Mr. Spindler stated. UNHCR is calling on the Government to provide more resources to respond to the emergency and immediately make available all public buildings and viable land for the accommodation of the large number of civilians in desperate need of assistance.The agency began an aid airlift for displaced people in Sri Lanka yesterday with the first plane carrying almost 3,000 family-size tents from its stockpiles in Dubai. A second humanitarian flight, carrying 103 metric tons of aid, arrived early today in Colombo. High Commissioner António Guterres has authorised an additional $2 million for Sri Lankan operations, which will go towards providing shelter, protection and other aid for civilians. The agency is also revising its current appeal for Sri Lanka, and increasing its budget for IDPs there to $16.6 million. “Given the urgency of the situation, we hope that donors will give generously to UNHCR in order for us to continue assisting the thousands of people forced to flee their homes in Sri Lanka,” Mr. Spindler said.

The scandal has led to at least 2,500 deaths, with the toll rising every year. But the aspiring computer engineer and his bandmates were all infected with a deadly virus around the time this picture was taken in 1983. Just one is still alive today. Posing proudly with his friends in the band they formed at school, Martin Wells looks like any other teenage boy with the rest of his life ahead of him. A major public inquiry launching this week will seek to uncover how and why 4,800 haemophiliacs – including Martin and 89 boys at his school – were infected after being given blood products containing HIV or hepatitis in the 1970s and 1980s. In total, as many as 25,000 people in the UK are thought…
In its Q4 2017 report, Woodside Energy stated that its 90% held Pluto LNG joint venture had approved development of a LNG truck-loading facility on the Burrup Peninsula. The facility will extend existing infrastructure from the onshore processing facility “to provide LNG for distribution within Western Australia. Potential applications include remote power generation and heavy transport fuel.” Start-up of the facility is targeted in H2 2018.The company gave more details in its full 2017 annual report: “We are promoting the use of LNG as a low-emissions and cost-effective alternative fuel for heavy transport and remote power generation. At Pluto LNG, we are constructing an LNG truck-loading facility. The facility will provide LNG for distribution by truck to the Pilbara region of Western Australia. We are also working with mining companies and equipment manufacturers on the use of LNG for mining operations. We are participating in two joint industry projects to assess the feasibility for LNG to be used as a fuel for bulk carriers transporting iron ore from the Pilbara.”
The UN might not look at the sci-fi classic Terminator and see just another film. Instead, it could be a troubling vision of the near-future where murderous robots exterminate humans on-site. A report from the UN human rights investigator will urge the body to support the banning of so-called “lethal autonomous robotics” before they can be invented.When the US Human Rights Council meets today, UN special rapporteur Christof Heyns will discuss the possibility that killer robots could cause unparalleled loss of life. The bad robots in this context are not limited to the kind with two legs and glowing eyes that travel through time. The UN will be asked to ban any weapon system that can acquire and attack targets without human intervention.No weapons even approaching this level of autonomy exist yet, but the defense industry and governments are believed to be working toward such tech. The UN report will point to unmanned drones as the first step on the way to autonomous killing machines. Once used only for surveillance, drone aircraft are now regularly armed with weapons and used to carry out airstrikes.Both the US and UK are are developing next-generation drone aircraft that take autonomy to the next level. The US Navy’s X-47B can pilot itself for extended periods, and even managed an unassisted aircraft carrier takeoff recently. The UK military is working on an unmanned aerial vehicle called Taranis that is capable of automatically defending itself against hostile enemy jets. South Korea has also been very open about its use of ground-based armed robots along the DMZ with the north.The UN will eventually have to decide if weapon systems that can make the decision to use lethal force are acceptable. Many fear that doing away with the need for human intervention would be a grave mistake. Although, even if the UN officially bans such technology, enforcing such a ban is a completely different problem.
Les fonds marins, un trésor qui regorge de vie microscopiqueUne nouvelle étude publiée dans la revue britannique Nature fait état de l’incroyable biodiversité des fonds marins. Des milliards de micro-organismes s’y trouveraient, se développant d’eux-mêmes et permettant une ouverture à de multiples analyses.L’océan est un vivier sans fin, parfois à la limite du “sans fond”. On commence à peine à connaître des espèces marines insoupçonnées, contenues dans les abysses profondes, que les scientifiques se penchent aujourd’hui sur les bactéries qui gisent dans les fonds marins. Une récente étude publiée dans la revue Nature dévoile ainsi l’incroyable biodiversité qui se trouve dans les fonds.Des organisme dits unicellulaires ont été observés ainsi que des champignons dans les sédiments prélevés au large des côtes du Pérou entre 5 et 159 mètres. “Les cellules sont très abondantes là dessous, mais elles n’ont pas un niveau d’activité très élevé” explique Virginia Edgcomb, de la Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. “Mais c’est une biosphère énorme” précise t-elle citée par l’AFP. Pour aboutir à cette découverte, les recherches se sont concentrées sur l’ARN messager, utilisé comme intermédiaire par les cellules pour la synthèse des protéines. Si la présence d’ARN est confirmée, alors celle d’une forme de vie l’est aussi et l’ensemble renseigne sur les mécanismes biologiques mis en œuvre par un organisme. Ceux retrouvés dans le plancher marin seraient capables de se déplacer et de se reproduire par division cellulaire, les champignons compris. C’est la première fois que les chercheurs apportent une telle preuve. D’après les résultats dévoilés, les micro-organismes pourraient également consommer des acides aminés, des éléments provenant des organismes vivants ou morts très récemment. Un éclairage sur la vie du carbone dans les océansÀ lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Par ailleurs, les fonds regorgeraient de micro-organismes qui se sont adaptés à des conditions extrêmes et qui sont donc encore plus intéressants à étudier. Mais la découverte pourrait également aider dans les recherches sur le carbone et l’azote présents dans les océans. L’activité microbienne “influence directement le fait de savoir si des éléments comme le carbone sont séquestrés durant des millions d’années dans les sédiments sous-marins ou s’ils sont renvoyés dans l’océan, affectant ainsi les chaînes alimentaires et le climat”, concluent les chercheurs. “Nos données suggèrent que c’est le second cas de figure qui se joue” à travers une myriade de formes de vie dans le sous-sol océanique, conclut ainsi l’étude.

The lonely tulip was wavering in the stiff breeze; its petals tattered and torn but still hanging in there with a brilliant hue of red and yellow. Others in this small planting of spring bulbs had succumbed to the cold and wet weather, their stems broken and lying upon the ground with flower heads wilted and brown. A few stragglers encased in tight buds and somewhat stunted may never bring forth their suppressed illumination.Ice pellets fall upon the earth’s surface, cooling the lingering effects of the evasive late April sunshine. The ground struggles to warm as the changeable weather arrives each spring day. A battle within nature itself wears upon all inhabitants of the region, from the lonely tulip to birds, reptiles and humans.Another cold storm enters our space as it has many times in the past. A repeat, an encore, a submission to yet endure the fickle and folly of the unpredictable season is called to order.Snows high in the mountains also blanket the multitude of wildflowers yet to awake from their now quite long slumber. Unlike the lonely tulip left to survive on its own, these sublime creations of nature will eventually sprout upward as the protective blanket of snow retreats. The rest of us bundle up and go about our means, sometimes wavering like the lonely tulip but waiting for the reappearance of the springtime sunshine. The warmth against our skin and the re energizing of our souls will come as well.

Lakshmi’s NTRTwitterRam Gopal Varma has been ordered to delay the release of Lakshmi’s NTR in the cinema halls across Andhra Pradesh by the Election Commission, which asked him to wait until further orders.Lakshmi’s NTR was released in theatres across the globe on March 31, but the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) had got its release in Andhra Pradesh stalled by the High Court, claiming the film would influence the voters in the Assembly and Lok Sabh elections. Ram Gopal Varma was asked to release the film after the elections got over on April 11, but he has received a shock from the Election Commission.After the Election Commission refused again, blocking the release of Lakshmi’s NTR in Andhra Pradesh, Ram Gopal Varma tweeted a copy of the court order and wrote: “For all those who are speculating how we are releasing Lakshmis NTR, please read these excerpts from the Honourable AP high court order.”Gopal Krishna Dwivedi, the Chief Electoral Officer of Andhra Pradesh, told Ram Gopal Varma that Lakshmi’s NTR should not be released as long as the model code of conduct is in force. The Election Commission has reportedly sent letters to all District Collectors and SPs to initiate action if there is violation.Fans angeredThis development has angered many fans of Ram Gopal Varma, who condemned the move of the Election Commission. A fan named Ravi Vallabhaneni (@ravivallabha) tweeted: “As per my understanding now it is for EC to act on this. However it forgot to act and is behaving like a puppet. Polling is over, hence movie can be released, doesn’t this logic apply to an elected CM to discharge official duties?”Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu had been facing a lot of criticism from the public for the last couple of days for declining permission to the press meet of Lakshmi’s NTR in Vijayawada. Many were wondering over the reason for blocking Ram Gopal Varma from entering the city. Now, the order of the Election Commission is the answer for their questions.Some followers of the TDP are happy with the order of the Election Commission. They expressed their anger against Ram Gopal Varma for damaging the image of the party. JC Arthimalla @ARTHIMALLA Election Commission reaffirms #LakshmisNTR shouldn’t be released in AP, Sent letter to all District Collectors and SPs to initiate action if there’s violation Now @ysjagan got answer from EC about the mistake @RGVzoomin has been doing in past 2 days Why is RGV not placing the order dated 10.04.2019 of Election Commission of India which specifically said “you are hereby directed not to exhibit the film till further orders”.under ehst authority he is maligning the TDP Govt &Chandra Babu.It should mentioned that the Election Commission had also ordered the producer of Udyama Simham, the biopic Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR), not to release the movie util further orders. It also stalled the release of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s biopic, asserting that any biopic material with the potential to disturb the level playing field during the elections should not be screened.

Stay on target SDCC 2019: ‘Riverdale’ Cast Spills Details on Core ‘Mystery’ for Season 4Top Movies and TV Panels to Keep on Your Radar for SDCC 2019 The mystery of who killed Jason Blossom is the most intriguing element of Riverdale. It’s what set the plot in motion. It gives the characters their motivation, and it ultimately keeps us coming back week after week. Last night’s episode showed us that the mystery doesn’t have to carry all the weight. The show can take a break from the mystery and still produce a fun, if a little trashy, hour of televisionThat’s not to say the mystery wasn’t touched on at all. It just took a back seat. No one was surprised to learn that when Cheryl Blossom confessed to being “guilty” at the end of last week’s episode, she wasn’t talking about killing Jason. Cheap way to force a cliffhanger? Oh yes, but it’s softened by the fact that we all knew exactly what they were doing. Cheryl clarifies that she’s guilty of lying about what happened on July Fourth. Jason didn’t fall and drown. He wanted to escape his parents and leave Riverdale. She was helping him fake his death.KJ Apa as Archie Andrews (Photo: Dean Buscher /The CW)Archie also confesses that he was near the river, and heard a gunshot the morning of July Fourth. He leaves Grundy out of it because, despite his desire to do the right thing, he’s still being manipulated by her. He tells them he was there working on his music. (He says he was there with his dog. Under normal circumstances, that would be on the offensive comparison, but Grundy is a child predator, so…) Unfortunately, that means word gets back to his dad that he wasn’t on a road trip with Jughead that weekend. Archie is grounded. Grundy also isn’t happy that he made life inconvenient for her and she cancels their music lessons.Fortunately for Archie, Cheryl is grateful that someone corroborated her story and offers to pay him back. She gets him a session with Josie and the Pussycats, and they invite him to a rehearsal. He tries to get them to sing one of his songs, but Josie explains in no uncertain terms why she doesn’t want to sing some straight white boy’s song. From her absolutely perfect monolog, we learn two things. One: When her mom became mayor, she got a bunch of hate mail. And two: They’re called the Pussycats because they have to claw their way into rooms that people like Archie can just walk into. But the show drops the ball on Archie’s well-deserved schooling and, after hearing some of his lyrics, they perform some of them anyway. Archie must be one hell of a songwriter if he can make ongoing institutionalized racism go away just like that.As we hear later at the Taste of Riverdale, it’s not a bad song. Archie’s dad also meets Grundy and starts flirting with her, making for the most uncomfortable scene of the episode. He asks her directly if she thinks his music career is worth supporting. She confirms that Archie has talent, and his dad soundproofs the garage so Archie can practice. The next day at school, Archie asks Grundy if they can continue their music lessons. They continue the lessons, along with the molestation.Betty and Veronica, once again, get the real meaty story of the episode. Veronica goes out on a date with Chuck Clayton, the captain of the football team and the coach’s son. After making out a bit on the date, Veronica arrives at school the next day to find that Chuck posted a photo of her with a maple syrup splotch imposed over her face. It’s Riverdale High Football’s way of slut-shaming, apparently. Veronica refuses to take that sitting down.When direct confrontation in the locker room fails, Betty decides to use her journalistic powers for good. She asks around the school and finds out that the football team has a history of humiliating girls like this. Ethel, played by Stranger Things‘ Shannon Purser (Barb!), goes on the record with a story about being called “sloppy seconds” after she helped Chuck with a math question in the library. They learn that there’s a book the football players keep score in, earning points for the different things they do (or claim to do) to the girls at school.Shannon Purser as Ethel Muggs. (Photo: Diyah Pera/THE CW)Cheryl shows up uninterrupted to call the girls sluts and say the book can’t exist. If it did, her pure and good twin brother would have put a stop to it. Veronica makes an impassioned speech about how she believes the girls’ stories and that Cheryl should never call them sluts again. That seems to be enough to convince Cheryl to join Betty and Veronica in breaking into the school and finding the book. (Cheryl has such major shifts in personality this episode. It’s to the point where I’m not even sure the writers know what to do with her.) They find the book, and lo and behold, Jason’s name is in it. He knew about it, and he was complicit.Finding the book isn’t enough for Betty and Veronica, though. They want to make Chuck admit what he did and pay for it. Betty convinces Chuck that she wants to be more of a bad girl. He makes some comments about how her sister, Polly was like that, according to Jason. He probably shouldn’t have done that, as we’ll soon find out. She tells him to meet her at Ethel’s house. Ethel and her family will be away, and they have a hot tub.Chuck arrives at the appointed time and is met by Veronica, who tells him that they’ve decided to share. She leads him to the backyard, where the Lynchian portion of the episode is. Oh yes, remember that this show was inspired by Twin Peaks? It finally did and gave us the strangest, most out-of-nowhere sequence of the season so far. Betty comes out in a Black wig, calling herself Polly. She and Veronica drug him with a muscle-relaxer and handcuff him in the hot tub. By slowly increasing the temperature, they force him to admit everything on camera. Betty doesn’t stop there. She threatens to drown him with her heel and pours maple syrup on her head. Addressing him as Jason, she demands he apologize to her as Polly.Betty (Lili Reinhart) isn’t playing around this episode. (Photo: Diyah Pera/The CW)Veronica is freaked out by this and brings it up with Betty at school the next day. Betty denies that she ever called herself Polly, or that she called Chuck Jason. Betty denies that she ever called herself Polly, but Veronica doesn’t believe her. And Betty still has the wig in her locker. Through Jughead’s narration, we learn that the article did some good. The coach was forced to cut his son and five other players from the football team. Ethel’s name is cleared, and Cheryl exclaims “#JusticeForEthel.” HA!As the episode ends, we learn the source of the Fourth of July gunshot. The scout leader was having his troupe practice shooting. As he could get in trouble for having the gun, he convinces Betty and Jughead not to print that story in favor of a bigger one. That morning at the lake, he saw Miss Grundy’s car. Things are about to fall apart for Archie and Grundy.While this week’s Riverdale had some problems (Archie’s entire storyline), Betty and Veronica teaming up to defeat slut-shamers was so satisfying. Their friendship continues to make Riverdale work as a show. Though it appears to have garnered mixed reactions, I loved Betty’s out-of-nowhere turn at Ethel’s house. It was weird, confusing and a perfect reminder that this show is not just another teen soap opera. Its Twin Peaks inspirations don’t begin and end with a small-town murder.

Langkawi is three years ahead of achieving long-term growth, with tourism leaders expecting to surpass 2015 targets this year.Last year Langkawai Tourism unveiled its blueprint, targeting three million tourists by 2015, now less than a year on and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak says the region is at door-steps of reaching its goals, New Straits Times reported. According to the leader, the five-year blueprint has had significant impact on tourism, with Langkawi International Airport experiencing double-digit growth of up to 11.9 percent on passenger movement, the highest increase in over a decade.Room occupancy also experienced an eight percent growth over the year, compared to the three and four percent previously. “I am happy that the private sector has proposed projects worth RM7.8 billion here,” he said. “This transformation created by the blueprint is a catalyst for the social and economic development of Langkawi.”As part of the blueprint, the island rebranded its tourism image, with the region now promoting, “Naturally Langkawi”.

That’s Derek Anderson territory, and it’s not funny.Then again, the pass to Fitzgerald was completed, and the ability to get the Pro Bowler the ball — no matter how open he is — is part of the QB’s job. So, under that criteria, the new signal caller is doing his job just fine.
