On Thursday, Nov. 20, wine lovers will be toasting the firstwines bottled from the Northern Hemisphere’s 2003 grape harvest.As per tradition, Beaujolais Nouveau arrives in select NovaScotia Liquor Corporation (NSLC) outlets on the third Thursday ofNovember. NSLC features Beaujolais Nouveau from French producers BouchardAine, Georges Duboeuf, Noemie Vernaux, Joseph Drouhin, Chateau deCorton-Andre and Reine Pedauque, Nouveau from the Cotes Du Rhoneregion from Jean Jean and Italian Vino Novello from Zonin. This year is expected to be an exceptional one for French wineproducers who began picking their grapes on Aug. 25. Grapes havenot been picked so early since 1893 — making the 2003 vintageone for the history books. The 2003 Beaujolais is expected to beparticularly intense and complex with plenty of red fruit likeraspberry, strawberry and red currant. Nouveau-style wines are designed with early drinking in mind,often reaching maturity by the Christmas holidays. The wines arelively and aromatic and differ from others because of the methodof fermentation. Great care is taken not to damage the fruitduring the picking stage so that fermentation can be encouragedwithin the skin. The production process takes only about 48hours, instead of 10 to 12 days, and creates a wine with a fullberry hue and a velvety, fresh fruit flavour. Unlike other red wines, Beaujolais Nouveau should be servedchilled at 10 to 13 C. The celebration of Beaujolais Nouveau has taken on greatproportions in recent years. Producers have used many tactics toentice consumers to purchase the first wine of the year, fromracing cases of wines to the nearest market to the now famouslabels featuring original art. Beaujolais Nouveau presents the wine buying public a preview ofthe vintage year and can be a measure of the quality of awinemaker’s spring release.
Heavy rains on the slopes of Mount Elgon, on Uganda’s border with Kenya, have buried three densely-populated villages, home to more than 3,000 people, in Nametsi Parish, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).The UN and its partners today dispatched two teams – comprising representatives from the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Food Programme (WFP), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and others – to assess the situation.UNICEF has also provided the Ugandan Health Ministry with two emergency health kits and 100 body bags.The Ugandan Government is leading the humanitarian response and has not requested assistance from UN Disaster and Coordination (UNDAC) teams or search-and-rescue missions.The disaster area is currently only accessible by foot or air due to its remoteness and lack of any serviceable roads, and the mudslides buried a health centre.OCHA said that immediate health needs include first aid and support in accessing medical facilities.According to early indications, some 10,000 people could be instructed to move by the Government due to concerns over further rains and landslides.Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have distributed blankets, tarpaulins, tents and other supplies, while the Government has dispatched 26 metric tons of food, with more set to follow. 3 March 2010Landslides triggered by torrential rainfall in eastern Uganda have claimed at least 80 lives, with over 300 others listed as missing, the United Nations humanitarian arm reported today.

The CID told court the comments being made by Namal Kumara could harm ongoing investigations. (Colombo Gazette)
“I am deeply concerned that water treatment workers and critical infrastructure continue to be targeted in eastern Ukraine’s armed conflict,” said Neal Walker, UN Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator in Ukraine, in a statement issued on Wednesday.“It is clear that any targeting of civilian infrastructure and intentional disruption of access to water supply or heating systems is a violation of international humanitarian law,” he added.In the last eight days, workers seeking to maintain the Donetsk Filter Station have been shot at on four separate occasions.The operation of the facility relies on the safe and unfettered access for the technicians, who risk their lives on a daily basis so water continues to flow to 345,000 people affected by the conflict.On Tuesday, a truck was fired upon while making a routine delivery of water treatment chemicals vital for continued operations. A bus carrying 30 workers was also fired upon. It was only due to good luck that no one was hurt, Mr. Walker said.Given Ukraine’s harsh winter, any interruption of water supply or inter-dependent heating systems could generate severe humanitarian consequences, he warned.After four years of armed conflict, ordinary men, women and children continue to be the most affected in eastern Ukraine, with their most basic needs, including safety and protection continuing to be denied.Millions of Ukrainians are either trapped in active hostilities or displaced and are losing hope, he said.
Considering everything that had taken place earlier in the series, it would’ve been hard to imagine the Rockets having a better start than the one they had in Monday’s Game 7.About midway through the second quarter, Houston had held Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green to 1-of-7, 2-of-6 and 2-of-6 shooting from the field, respectively. Klay Thompson opened the game hot — and was 4-of-5 from the field — but his effectiveness was dulled to some extent because he’d uncharacteristically landed three fouls in the first four minutes of action, forcing Steve Kerr to yank him early. Meanwhile, Houston found a comfort zone from deep, hitting 6 of 13 threes. And even when the Rockets misfired, they often outworked Golden State, strong-arming offensive boards on nine of their 19 missed shots.Houston had a 42-30 lead with 6:13 to go in the half as likely league MVP James Harden ducked behind a Clint Capela screen for a 3-point try over the outstretched arm of Green. The shot, a miss, didn’t seem significant in that moment. But what would follow — 26 more missed threes in a row, the longest stretch of missed triples in NBA postseason history — turned out to be one of the biggest outliers in recent memory, one that will haunt the title-worthy Rockets now that they’ve been taken out by a Warriors team that they had right where they wanted.So how unbelievable was it that Houston missed that many threes — many of which were wide open — in a row? To get a better sense, FiveThirtyEight leaned on Quantified Shot Probability (qSP) data — used to weigh the likelihood of a shot going in depending on who’s taking it, how close the nearest defender is to the shot, and how quickly that player is closing out — from Second Spectrum and NBA Advanced Stats, which use high-level cameras to track on-court movement.By using that metric — and looking at the probability of each individual shot’s chance of going down, from Harden’s 33 percent hoist that began the drought to his 31.6 percent chance on the last shot of the dry spell — we can conclude that the Rockets embarked on an approximately 1-in-72,000 cold streak from deep at the worst possible time, with a trip to the Finals on the line.As much of this was happening during the third period, a span in which Houston went 0-of-14 from deep, the Warriors were doing what they do best: staging a massive comeback after halftime. Specifically, Curry caught fire after the break for the second straight game (albeit in controversial, illegal-screen fashion at times), hitting 4-of-5 from 3-point range in the third. He and Durant combined for 24 in the period, a span in which the duo outscored the entire Rockets team by nine.Houston had overcome Golden State’s Mario Star-like third period earlier in the series during Game 4. But without any juice from the Rockets’ trademark long-distance shooting, the Warriors pulled ahead and stayed there for good, earning a fourth consecutive Finals trip.But given that many saw Houston as the club with the best chance to take down Golden State (the oddsmakers have the Warriors as enormous favorites over the Cavs), that confounding stretch of missed threes — which lasted half the game, from the 6:13 mark of the second quarter all the way until the 6:28 mark of the fourth — will be talked about for a long time.What could possibly cause a team to go that cold? Some would point to tired legs, particularly since coach Mike D’Antoni had been using a short rotation — somewhat out of necessity, since future Hall of Famer Chris Paul was out. But the dry spell was also related to matchups. Case in point: D’Antoni avoided using the slow-footed Ryan Anderson for the vast majority of the series. But when he dusted him off and played him Monday, Curry nearly brought Anderson to his knees on D, and Houston got outscored by 12 points in Anderson’s 8 minutes on the court — keep in mind, the final margin in the game was nine.Many probably asked a totally logical question in all this: Why wouldn’t the Rockets just temporarily abandon their reliance on the 3-ball since they couldn’t make anything from outside? Yes, this team took triples at a historic rate — the first ever to attempt more three-pointers than twos — but putting the ball on the floor to get looks from closer in seemed sensible.Doing that would have a been a little bit easier said than done for two reasons. First, without Paul, the Rockets were missing their most reliable midrange player, someone who at times had his way against the Jazz in the second-round series because of his ability to neutralize a club that was generally happy surrender that sort of lower-percentage look.Beyond that, Harden and the Rockets might not have been confident that they’d earn trips to the line by merely being more aggressive. In Game 6, for instance, Harden drove to the cup a game-high 21 times, according to NBA Advanced Stats. Yet he didn’t draw a single free-throw attempt from those drives. (Green told reporters after the game that they expected Harden to wear down late in the contest from having to create so much offense in Paul’s absence. Whether that expectation was valid or not, Harden shot 6-of-25, or 24 percent, from 3-point range over the last two games of the series.)In an era where so many thought this Warriors’ team was untouchable, Houston managed to push Golden State to the brink. With a healthy Paul, maybe they would have won and taken down a team that’s still seeking to go down as the greatest to ever play the sport.Houston’s Gerald Green was asked to describe his feelings after the tough loss. “Heartbroken,” he told reporters. Asked to expand beyond that single word, he responded, “Heart. Broken.”The cost of coming that close and falling short. The cost of arguably the wildest drought we’ve ever seen.Check out our latest NBA predictions.CORRECTION (May 29, 2018, 1:20 p.m.): A previous version of this story mistakenly said Curry and Durant outscored the Rockets by 10 points in the third quarter. The duo outscored Houston by nine.
Ohio State women’s swim team competes against Wright State during a meet at the McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion on Feb. 3. Credit: Fallon Perl | Lantern reporterFollowing the completion of a nearly undefeated regular season and an impressive turnout at the Big Ten Championships, the No. 22 Ohio State women’s swimming team is set to travel to Indianapolis to compete in the NCAA Division I Women’s Swimming National Championships beginning Wednesday evening.The Buckeyes enter this meet ranking behind four of their Big Ten competitors, including Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana and Minnesota, who are ranked at No. 6, 12, 15 and 19 respectively. Though there will be many fierce competitors from these teams as well as others, the Buckeyes remain focused on their own performances.“We don’t spend a whole lot of time talking about other teams or schools or athletes. We really put the focus on us,” OSU coach Bill Dorenkott said. “That being said, to reinforce the point of what an amazing meet this is, you have Katie Ledecky, Simone Manuel, and Lilly King who are Olympic medalists and world record holders. It’s an honor to compete against the best not just in the country, but in the world. This is why we do what we do every day — it’s to get this opportunity.”Ledecky and Manuel will both be competing for top-ranked Stanford. Both athletes were medalists at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, with a combined seven gold medals, as well as two silver. King, who swims for No. 15 Indiana, earned one individual gold at the Rio Games in addition to a gold in the 400-yard medley relay.Athletes from Stanford, including Ledecky and Manuel, are the top seeds in 10-of-13 events. King fills two of three No. 1 seeds in the remaining events, while Olympic medalist Kathleen Baker from No. 2 California Berkeley fills the other.The adversaries OSU will face this week might seem intimidating on paper, but they have not deterred OSU from continuing to put in countless hours in the pool and the weight room in order to fine tune their techniques before the big meet.“We’ve been focusing on the fine details, and honing in on the smaller things,” senior Taylor Vargo said. “We’ve been working on technique and enjoying the process as well as the last few weeks of swimming.”Vargo will be competing in both the 200-yard and 400-yard medley relays, as well as the 100-yard and 200-yard breaststroke. This will be her fourth and final year competing in the NCAAs, and said she can’t wait to experience the competition one last time.“My sophomore year, we were No. 41, I believe, and last year we were No. 14. It’s just exciting to be able to go and compete against some of the fastest swimmers in the world,” Vargo said. “It is the fastest meet in the world, and it’s just nice to be able to go up and be recognized, and to be considered at the highest level.”Vargo will be joined by nine other teammates, two more of which are returning NCAA competitors as well.“We have a nice combination of youth and experience. We return Liz Li and Lindsey Clary, who were both Top Eight a year ago, and then we return Taylor Vargo who has been there four times,” Dorenkott said. “We also have a nice group of freshmen going, probably as good a group as anybody in the country.”Molly Kowal and Kathrin Demler are the two freshmen that will be competing in the meet, each competing in three events. Kowal will be swimming the 1,650-yard freestyle, along with the 500-yard freestyle and the 400-yard individual medley. Demler will be joining her teammate in the 500-yard freestyle and 400-yard individual medley, in addition to competing in the 200-yard backstroke.“It is a meet that rewards experience, and so for some of those kids it’s the opportunity to get there and see what it’s all about. For some of them, I keep telling them how good they are and sooner or later they’re going to start believing me,” Dorenkott said. “We have a couple of freshmen who are world class, they’re just not there today, but they’re going to be special and the sooner they believe it the better we’ll all be.”One of those freshman is Kowal, who said her nerves will be undeniable in her first NCAA appearance.“I think it’s going to be fun to go with the group of girls that are going. I mean, I’m pretty nervous because it will definitely, by far, be the biggest meet I’ve ever gone to,” she said. “There are also going to be some really big names there like Katie Ledecky, which will be cool, but it’s also kind of intimidating. But I get nervous for every meet so it’s nothing I can’t handle.”Junior Meg Bailey will compete in the 200-yard and 400-yard individual medleys, as well as the 200-yard butterfly.Vargo — being an experienced NCAA competitor — said the team’s goal is to compete at the highest level in each race.“We want to move up spots, move up places, get some points, and represent Ohio State,” Vargo said. “It’s okay to be nervous, though. Everyone’s a little bit nervous when you go, but just realize that you represent The Ohio State University and I don’t think there’s a better feeling in the world.”The Buckeyes would be grateful to earn some winning titles, but they are just as grateful to compete and improve both individually and as a team.“In terms of winning — whether it’s an individual title or a team title — that’s something that’s out of your control,” Dorenkott said. “The only thing you can focus on is the effort you put into winning, and that’s really where our minds are right now. We’re focused on getting some rest, getting sharpened up, and getting ready to roll.”The competition begins Wednesday night at the Indiana University Natatorium in Indianapolis, and will continue through Saturday.
Website for handball in EX-Yugoslavia region, Balkan-Handball.com, bring really interesting opinion of player legend of THW Kiel, Magdeburg, Irun Bidasoa, F.C Barcelona and Yugoslav national team, now at the position of Director in HC Crvena zvezda, Nenad Perunicic (39). It is a question about an idea of all EX-Yu (Hungary and Austria also) federation to make strong regional competition called “S League” with general sponsor “Erste Bank”. As Serbian newspaper earlier wrote, Perunicic was against that kind of competition, but he know denided everything and talked about interest of Serbian teams.– I didn’t told that I am against that Crvena zvezda participate in “S League”, what Partizan and Metaloplastika wanted to accept fast. I am just looking about our reality. If you look at teams from former Yugoslavia, only Crvena zvezda never relegated from Elite divison. That is the biggest possible tradition for one team. With this budgets, we can’t play in Regional League. If we have to lose against THW Kiel with 15 goals in Europe, don’t let to lose against Bosna Sarajevo with seven. Do you understand me? This is a question about club tradition, which is with Zagreb, most important in Ex-Yu area. In that time, Celje was second Yugoslav division, Vardar and Metalurg Skopje didn’t exist, but Pelister Bitola. Now, they have a two million EUR budget. I don’t want to let that someone us humiliate in Belgrade, to let us break at the ground. I am just thinking about that aspect of this story. Second thing, handball is contact sport and we know very good what happened in 2005 on the match between Zagreb and Partizan (CWC). It is much more charge than in basketball. We have to make long period strategy about Regional competition and our obligation is to protect Serbian teams. I don’t want that someone make a joke from us.

Jailbreak iOS 4.1 : Shatter et GreenPois0n dans les starting-blocksSi l’on en croit les rumeurs qui circulent au sein de la blogosphère, la dernière version du système d’exploitation mobile d’Apple iOS 4.1 pourrait être bientôt jailbreakée. Deux programmes semblent particulièrement bien placés pour réduire l’OS de la pomme en compote. Sur WebDevOnLinux, on apprend que Shatter est toujours en cours de développement. Ce programme de jailbreak d’iOS 4.1 exploiterait une faille de la boot ROM (ensemble de fonctions élémentaires contenu dans la mémoire morte de la carte mère, ndlr). La faille visée est matérielle, et l’outil devrait donc fonctionner sur tous les iPhone, iPad ou iPod touch existants et futurs. Sur iPodTutofast, c’est un autre nom qui est évoqué pour le prochain outil de jailbreak visant iOS 4.1, utilisant lui aussi une injection de code dans la boot ROM. Autre, mais pas nouveau car si l’on en croit les comptes Twitter des membres de la Dev Team, déjà connue pour ses précédents exploits en matière de jailbreaking, c’est un ancien nom qui revient pour ce programme de jailbreak de l’iPhone 4, en l’occurrence GreenPois0n.Déjà utilisé pour jailbreaker les iPhone tournant sous iOS 3.1.3 et les iPad sous 3.2, GreenPois0n rendrait le jailbreak de l’iOS 4.1 bien plus simple.Apple semble donc avoir du souci à se faire pour son nouvel OS mobile.

Jeenah Moon When Temperatures Rise, So Do Health Problems by NPR News Clayton Dalton 8.24.19 7:00am A little Shakespeare came to mind during a recent shift in the Boston emergency room where I work.”Good Mercutio, let’s retire,” Romeo’s cousin Benvolio says. “The day is hot, the Capulets abroad, and, if we meet, we shall not ‘scape a brawl.”It was hot in Boston, too, and people were brawling. The steamy summer months always seem to bring more than their fair share of violence.But the ER was full of more than just brawlers. Heart attacks, strokes, respiratory problems — the heat appeared to make everything worse.I wasn’t the first to notice this effect. In 1938, a statistician named Mary Gover found a surprising association between heat waves and increased mortality from all causes. Only about a quarter of deaths during these periods could be attributed to heatstroke, a dangerous form of heat illness that occurs when temperatures outstrip the body’s ability to shed heat.In heatstroke, proteins begin to unravel once the core temperature exceeds 104 degrees. Enzymes become inert. Cells’ ability to produce energy fails near 106, ultimately causing multiple organ failure, shock and death.Heatstroke is an important cause of heat-related deaths and tends to get the most attention during extreme heat waves. But other diseases are affected by the heat as well.Gover found that a majority of the excess deaths occurring during heat waves were from “diseases of the heart, cerebral hemorrhage … and pneumonia.” That observation seemed right to me, and subsequent research has shown that she was on to something.Three September heat waves in Los Angeles — 1939, 1955 and 1963 — were associated with increased total mortality of 271%, 445%, and 172% more than usual. Death from all causes doubled during a heat wave in New York City in August 1975, with heart attacks and strokes accounting for a majority of the excess deaths.More recently, total mortality rose 26% in Philadelphia during 10 scorching days in July 1993, with mortality from cardiovascular disease nearly doubling. A 2018 analysis of 23 studies confirmed the association between cardiovascular mortality and heat waves. And in 2013, a study of 12 million Medicare patients found a strong association between heat and exacerbation of chronic respiratory diseases.Other scientists began looking beyond heat waves. British researchers compared mortality rates with average temperatures throughout the year and found that death rates from heart attack, stroke and pneumonia increased steadily with temperatures over 70.In 2002, another British team found that total mortality in London increased by roughly 3% for every 1 degree Celsius above 21.5 Celsius, or about 70 Fahrenheit. That same year, a team from Johns Hopkins confirmed that total mortality increases linearly above 70 degrees in a study of 11 U.S. cities.Why would heat have such a profound effect on cardiovascular disease in particular? It may relate to the body’s own adaptive response to high temperatures.When body temperature rises, blood becomes a critical means of ditching heat. Vessels near the skin dilate to increase peripheral blood flow. Heat is circulated from the core to the skin, where sweating helps to transfer heat to the environment.The heart is the engine that drives this adaptation, and the added stress could prove fatal to a damaged one.Heat also causes dehydration, which could in turn increase the risk of clotting by concentrating coagulation factors within the blood and by triggering the release of molecules that spur inflammation. Any predisposition to clotting could contribute to a heart attack or stroke.Heat may also exacerbate mental illness. In 2014, Canadian researchers found that ER visits for mental illness increased 29% during periods of extreme heat in Toronto. Vietnamese scientists demonstrated in 2016 that risk of admission to a mental health facility increased 36% during weeklong heat waves. The following year, a team of Korean researchers estimated that nearly 15% of emergency admissions for mental illness over an 11-year period could be attributed to extreme heat.And what about violence and aggression? Was Benvolio right to warn Mercutio against meeting any Capulets in the heat?Associations between heat and violent crime have been noted since official crime statistics became available around 1900. In 1997, researchers used modern statistics to confirm that violent crime occurs more often in warmer years. Scientists used FBI crime data in 2004 to show that crime rose 5% for every 10-degree increase in weekly average temperatures. And a 2013 study found that violent crime increased 1% for every degree above average monthly temperatures in St. Louis.Field experiments have also supported an association between heat and aggression. In 1986, researchers found that drivers were more likely to use their horns when it was hot outside. And in 1994, police officers exposed to elevated temperatures during firearms training were found to exhibit increased aggression and were more likely to discharge their weapons.These are worrying trends, especially with temperatures projected to rise ever higher in coming years. Benvolio may have put it best. “For now, these hot days,” he says to Mercutio, “is the mad blood stirring.”Clayton Dalton is a resident physician at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.Copyright 2019 NPR.

Ahead of a consumer data privacy hearing, scheduled for today, Epic and eleven other consumer and privacy organizations submitted a data protection framework to the Senate Commerce Committee, yesterday. The Framework outlines issues that should be addressed to implement effective baseline privacy protections in the United States. “Core principles include: user control, transparency about business practices, collection and use limitations, data minimization and deletion, and security.“Personal data” should be broadly defined to include information that identifies, or could identify, a particular person” This hearing titled “Consumer Data Privacy: Examining Lessons From the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation and the California Consumer Privacy Act,” will take place on Wednesday, October 10, 2018. It will be presided by U.S. Sen. John Thune, chairman of the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. This hearing will discuss the new privacy laws in Europe and California and ponder on the types of consumer protections to consider in future legislation. The Data protection framework proposed by the consumer protection organizations lays basic rules for the Congress to act on in the U.S. This includes: Enact baseline federal data protection legislation: “Baseline federal legislation should be based on familiar Fair Information Practices, such as the widely followed OECD Privacy Guidelines. This framework creates obligations for companies that collect personal data and rights for individuals whose personal data is collected.” Limit government access to personal data: “US companies should not disclose user data in bulk to the government agencies, particularly after the recent Carpenter ruling that established that individuals have a constitutional privacy interest in the personal data held by third parties.” Establish algorithmic transparency and end discriminatory profiling: “Algorithmic transparency, to promote fairness and to remove bias, is now a core element of modern privacy law and should be included in US privacy law.” Prohibit “take it or leave it” and other unfair terms: “Requiring individuals to pay more or providing them with lower quality goods or services if they do not agree to waive their privacy rights is unfair and discriminates against those with less means.” Ensure robust enforcement: “Companies should be required by law to implement and maintain robust security measures. Furthermore, consumers should be able to pursue a private right of action that produces meaningful penalties.” Promote privacy innovation: “Federal privacy law should make privacy innovation an affirmative obligation for all companies that collect and use personal data.” Establish a data protection: “The US needs a federal agency focused primarily on identifying emerging privacy challenges, ensuring compliance with data protection obligation and identifying emerging privacy challenges” Epic.org has also submitted a statement to the Committee regarding the recent security and data breaches at Google and Facebook. Their statement also highlights the Federal Trade Commission’s failure to take necessary action on these incidents. Per their statement, “The FTC’s failure to enforce consumer privacy safeguards has led not only to diminished data protection in the United States but also to less innovation and less competition among Internet services. The FTC’s failure to enforce the original privacy rights of WhatsApp allowed Facebook to acquire user data and undermine one of the best messaging services. Even the founders of WhatsApp know this. But the FTC has said nothing.” Read the full proposed data protection framework, to know more. Read Next Google, Amazon, AT&T met the U.S Senate Committee to discuss consumer data privacy.
