Fishing the North Coast: Chetco Bubble fishery kicking out some big kings

first_imgThe Chetco bubble season got off to another slow start, but quickly rebounded with plenty of big kings hitting the net over the weekend. “Fishing was fair on Saturday and good on Sunday once everyone figured out where the fish were,” said Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing out of Brookings. “Big swells to 10 feet and strong northwest winds made trolling tough at times, but good numbers of salmon were holding between Salmon Rock and the red buoy.

Choosing a Private Cloud Provider and Doing it All Wrong

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market There’s a right way to choose a cloud provider and there’s a wrong way. The right way is to do the research about your needs and requirements. The wrong way is to choose a provider by evaluating and comparing vendor offerings.John Treadway writes on CloudBzz that IT leaders he speaks with are taking the latter approach. They’re evaluating the vendors and not doing their own analysis.Instead, IT leaders should be going through a long list of questions before starting to evaluate vendors. His initial list gives a taste about how IT leaders should approach the task:What are the strategic objectives for my cloud program?How will my cloud be used?Who are my users and what are their expectations and requirements?How should/will a cloud model change my data center workflows, policies, processes and skills requirements?How will cloud users be given visibility into their usage, costs and possible chargebacks?How will cloud users be given visibility into operational issues such as server/zone/regional availability and performance?What is my approach to the service catalog? Is it prix fixe, a la carte, or more like value meals? Can users make their own catalogs?How will I handle policy around identity, access control, user permissions, etc?What are the operational tools that I will use for event management & correlation, performance management, service desk, configuration and change management, monitoring, logging, auditability, and more?What will my vCenter administrators do when they are no longer creating VMs for every request?What will the approvers in my process flows today do when the handling of 95% of all future requests are policy driven and automated?What levels of dynamism are required regarding elasticity, workload placement, data placement and QoS management across all stack layers?Beyond a VM, what other services will I expose to my users?How will I address each of the key components such as compute, networking, structured & object storage, virtualization, security, automation, self-service, lifecycle management, databases and more?What are the workloads I expect to see in my cloud, and what are the requirements for these workloads to run?Treadway says IT leaders are letting the tail wag the dog. We can see how that can be the case. It seems logical to do the research first. But this may not be about the right choice as much as it is about the economical one for the business. That’s a problem. Vendors will offer all sorts of incentives to get your business. That can lead to trade offs that can really hurt down the road.

Death penalty for rape of girls aged 12 and below: MP Assembly passes Bill

first_img ‘Historic day’“It was a historic day for Madhya Pradesh as the State Assembly, as per the wish of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, passed a Bill making a provision to award the capital punishment to those indulging in such crimes (raping girls aged 12 or younger),” Singh said.Capital punishment would be awarded to convicts under Section 376 (A), which is related to rape, and Section 376 (D, A), pertaining to gang rape.Welcoming the bill, Mr. Chouhan said, “There are people in society who can be set right only by severe punishments. It [the legislation] will deal with them. We will also raise awareness in society against such crimes.” The Madhya Pradesh Assembly on Monday unanimously passed a Bill awarding death to those found guilty of raping girls aged 12 and below. With this, Madhya Pradesh becomes the first State where those convicted of such rapes will face the gallows.Introduced in the House by Law and Legislative Affairs Minister Rampal Singh, the Bill was discussed in detail and then passed by all parties, including the ruling BJP and the Opposition Congress.The Bill will now be sent to the President for his assent after which it will become a law, State Home Minister Bhupendra Singh told reporters outside the Assembly.last_img read more

Neymar to PSG? Barcelona’s denials don’t stop transfer talk

first_imgChurch, environmentalists ask DENR to revoke ECC of Quezon province coal plant MOST READ Fast forward, and sections of the Brazilian and Spanish media reignited the deal this month, saying that Neymar wants to emerge out of Messi’s shadow — which couldn’t happen for a while seeing as Messi has agreed a new Barcelona contract until 2021.But the last thing Valverde needs is losing Neymar.“There are rumors, we’re aware of them,” Valverde said. “We’re happy with him and he’s happy with us.”According to Spanish reports, Neymar has told club Josep Bartomeu that he wants to leave. But speaking Thursday during an interview at The Associated Press, Bartomeu said firmly : “He is not on the market.”Landing Neymar would be an even bigger coup than signing Ibrahimovic in 2012.___FEELING AT HOMEThe PSG squad features several of Neymar’s compatriots. The captain is Thiago Silva, whose center back partner is fellow Brazilian Marquinhos. PSG also recently signed rampaging Brazilian full back Dani Alves from Juventus.PSG’s Parc des Princes loves a Samba beat, too.The mesmeric Ronaldinho was a huge favorite from 2001-03, securing a big move to Barcelona — where he won the Golden Ball.

It was accompanied by a photo of Neymar with his hand on his forehead like a ship’s captain, gazing into the horizon as if longingly eyeing a future destination.The headline is a play on words with the favorite chant among PSG fans of “Paris est Magique” (Paris is Magic).ADVERTISEMENT Trump strips away truth with hunky topless photo tweet But Neymar left the stadium in New Jersey without saying anything to reporters, allowing speculation he will imminently join PSG for 220 million euros ($253 million) to persist.The Barcelona coach and president have been more willing to speak, and both are adamant the mercurial forward is staying put.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool stars“We want Neymar to be with us,” Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said after the 2-1 victory over Juventus. “We know the importance he has in our game, our dressing room, the team dynamic, and we want him with us. It’s clear.”Barcelona’s league campaign begins on Aug. 20, while PSG’s season opener is in less than two weeks on Aug. 5. Slaughter admits dealing with chemistry issues in 1st game back for Ginebra El Nido residents told to vacate beach homes LATEST STORIES Before him came Rai, the classy midfield general who broke down in tears after waving good bye to PSG fans following a brilliant spell from 1993-98 where he scored 72 goals and dazzled in the City of Light. There was also Valdo — Rai’s astute midfield partner. Attacking right back Leonardo — who became the club’s sporting director, signing Ibrahimovic — and the recently retired left back Maxwell left lasting impressions.___FITTING INTO THE TEAMWhich position would Neymar play for PSG? Would he fit in or clash with star striker Edinson Cavani?Awkward questions for PSG.Neymar can play on both flanks, but should be the leading main man as center forward.That role already belongs to Cavani, who signed a new PSG contract until 2020 after netting a league-leading 35 goals last season.Having waited three years to become PSG’s No. 1, slogging it out wide right to accommodate Ibrahimovic, it is highly unlikely Cavani would welcome doing the same again if Neymar joins.Equally, having played a supporting role to Messi and — somewhat — to Luis Suarez for the past two seasons, Neymar would not want to play second fiddle again.PSG is desperate to join Europe’s elite, but signing Neymar may produce a conflict the club should avoid. For his arrival could push Cavani out of the door, depriving PSG of its best scorer.

(AP Photo/Julio Cortez)PARIS — Denials from Barcelona are doing little to halt the fervor that Brazil star Neymar could be joining Paris Saint-Germain in a transfer that more than doubles the world record.Neymar is still playing for Barcelona, warming up for the new season by scoring twice against Juventus in a friendly on Saturday.ADVERTISEMENT National Coffee Research Development and Extension Center brews the 2nd National Coffee Education Congress Robredo should’ve resigned as drug czar after lack of trust issue – Panelo Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ PSG may be better served signing Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez, who is not as skillful as Neymar but more hard-working.Playing Neymar at striker would add flair, but arguably less goals: raising the question whether it’s actually worth it for PSG to sign him.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. View comments Not magical enough to win the Champions League yet, or even advance past the quarterfinals in the past four seasons. To challenge for European soccer’s top prize, coach Unai Emery told L’Equipe earlier this week: “PSG must have one of the top five players in the world. We are looking to sign one this summer.”Neymar certainly fits the bill. While not at the level of Barcelona star Lionel Messi or Real Madrid’s prolific Ronaldo, the 25-year-old Neymar has longer left at the top and has not even reached his peak. Should PSG sign Neymar, the transfer would smash the previous world-record fee of 105 million euros (then $116 million) that Manchester United paid a year ago for France midfielder Paul Pogba.It would be a massive coup for Emery given his troubled first season.PSG relinquished its league title to Monaco and made unwanted history by becoming the first team eliminated from the Champions League knockout stages having won the first leg 4-0. PSG lost 6-1 away to Barcelona in the last 16, with PSG’s tormentor being Neymar.___PSG’S PURSUITThe Qatari-owned club’s courting of Neymar dates back to April last year.With uncertainty surrounding Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s future, PSG had discussions with the player’s father and his agent, Wagner Riberio. PSG reportedly was ready to pay 190 million euros.But two months later, Neymar reached an agreement to extend his Barcelona contract until 2021, with his release clause pushed up to the existing 220 million euros and 250 million ($288 million) by the summer of 2018.It raised the question whether he just used PSG club as a bargaining tool. However, in September, Ribeiro publicly stated that Neymar had been “close to joining PSG.” Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ FEU Auditorium’s 70th year celebrated with FEU Theater Guild’s ‘The Dreamweavers’last_img read more

Luke AFB Local Police Departments Renew Training Partnership

first_imgPolice departments from the cities of El Mirage, Peoria and Surprise will be able to continue practicing emergency vehicle driving skills at Luke AFB, Ariz., in conjunction with the 56th Security Forces Squadron, under a memorandum of understanding that representatives signed Wednesday. Before training began at Luke, the three police departments struggled to find an adequate location for proper training procedures, reports 56th Fighter Wing Public Affairs. The local departments provide the vehicles and instructors, which benefits Luke.“This is a big agreement for West Valley agencies,” said Terry Young, Surprise Police Department police chief. “Every year in public safety, we see an increase for the needs of training, and it can be difficult to balance resources with requirements. Luke is a perfect example of the strength we have with our state and federal partners not just in the valley, but the state of Arizona.”Photo by U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Caleb Worpel Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Wait — no, I’m not.

So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening.

Project Glasswing lets users tweak the opacity of a screen and overlay text and video. Adobe Adobe’s research team has created an experimental display prototype that blends digital and physical worlds, the company said in a Friday blog post. The project, called Project Glasswing, features a transparent display that lets users tweak a screen’s opacity to reveal objects on the other side. They can also interact with or reposition images and videos on the screen, which can be layered over the objects. The display essentially brings augmented reality to life by enhancing real-world objects with virtual content, but no phones or glasses are needed. “Project Glasswing explores the possibility of bringing Adobe’s design tools to the physical world, creating the illusion of a Photoshop, After Effects or XD layer appearing in space in front of 3D real objects,” Adobe wrote in the post. The company says this prototype could unlock new storytelling opportunities. It could, for instance, be implemented in store advertising so that shoes on display in a window are accompanied with text, video or graphics. Museums could also display artifacts in glass cases with overlaying information graphics. Adobe will share more about Project Glasswing at next week’s Siggraph conference in Los Angeles. $155 at Google Express Sarah Tew/CNET Rylo 5.8K 360 Video Camera: $250 (save $250) Read Lenovo Smart Clock review Now playing: Watch this: See at Amazon Turo 0 Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand.

Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price.

BNPs joining in next polls depends on Khaledas release

first_imgBNP senior leader Nazrul Islam Khan. File PhotoBNP senior leader Nazrul Islam Khan on Sunday said their party’s participation in the next general election largely depends on the release of Khaleda Zia from jail.“We’ve tried to have Khaleda Zia freed from jail through a legal process, but the government won’t let it happen… it mainly depends on her release whether we’ll join the polls,” he said.Nazrul, standing committee member of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party, came up with the remarks while speaking at a discussion arranged by Aparajeyo Bangladesh at the Jatiya Press Club demanding BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia’s release.He called upon BNP leaders and activists to get ready for waging a greater mass movement to free Khaleda from jail and bring a change in the country by ousting the current government.The BNP leader said though their party has long been carrying out a peaceful movement, the government continued arresting their party leaders and activists.He lamented that many BNP leaders and activists have been kept in jail for months after months and they are not getting bail from courts in the ‘false’ cases they were implicated.Nazrul said people are going through immense sufferings due to rise in the prices of utility services and daily essentials amid the growing unemployment rate. “It can’t be continued. A greater democratic mass movement is crucial to get rid of the current situation.”The BNP leader said their party will involve people and unite other political parties to wage the movement.last_img read more
