The gunmen had arrived on a motorcycle and opened fire on man at his house in Ranmuthugala in Kadawatha. (Colombo Gazette) One person was killed during a shooting incident in Kadawatha, the Police said.The Police said that a 37 year old man was shot dead by two unidentified gunmen.
Filippo Grandi, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, together with UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, Mark Lowcock, launched a $3.2 billion appeal to help those forced to flee their homes, as fighting continues across the world’s youngest country.They are appealing for $1.5 billion to support refugees who have fled across the border into six neighbouring countries, including Uganda, Kenya, Sudan, Ethiopia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Central African Republic (CAR).A further $1.7 billion is needed to help those internally-displaced by the fighting, which has fuelled famine conditions, and a humanitarian crisis since conflict broke out between forces loyal to the President and Vice-President, in 2013.Mr. Grandi said the violence was “purging South Sudan of the people who should be the greatest resource of a young nation.”“They should be building the country, not fleeing it,” he added.Mr. Grandi and Mr. Lowcock, who is also the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, have been visiting newly-arrived refugees from the country, in UNHCR’s Kakuma refugee camp, in northern Kenya.Mr. Lowcock said that the conflict had taken a “brutal and deadly toll” and it was “in the interests of everyone to continue to provide generous and continuous support” to the refugees.There are nearly 2.5 million South Sudanese who have already fled the country, and around seven million need humanitarian assistance. read more

I will make sure any necessary action is taken, and that all steps are taken to make sure these trams are as safe as possible.”Transport for London said the footage was being “urgently” investigated.Investigators said the derailed tram was travelling at three-and-a-half times the speed limit when it crashed near Sandilands station on Wednesday, November 9.The tram’s driver, Alfred Dorris, 42, from Beckenham, south-east London, was arrested at the scene and questioned on suspicion of manslaughter before being bailed until May. A tram driver who appears to fall asleep at the controls on the same line where a crash killed seven people has been suspended.A spokesman for First Group, which operates the tram network, said the driver has been “removed from duty” pending an investigation.A concerned passenger filmed the 32-second clip as the driver struggled to stay upright around three miles from the derailment in Croydon, south London, The Sun reported.This afternoon a First Group spokesperson said: “The driver involved in the video has been removed from duty pending the outcome of the investigation. read more
After fantastic handball event in London during Olympic Games, Handball-Planet.com wants to save some memories and try to find the best conclusions of the days in „Copper Box“ and „Basketball Arena“.1. GOLDEN NORWAYThey are World, European and Olympic champions. Norway defend Olympic gold from Beijing. They were not good as in China, but who cares, when golds are in their hands. They survived Brasil, form raised from match to match and on the end Hergeirsson had good squad and winning mentality again.2. BRAVE MONTENEGROMontegrin girls made the biggest success in the sports history of one of the smallest European countries. Handball silver was only medal in London for Montenegro. Bojana Popovic and Maja Savic have played their last tournament in proffesional careers, but despite defeat in the final against Norway, they can be happy. More than 20.000 fans showed gratitude for the „golden lionesses“…3. FIRST FEMALE REFFERES COUPLE IN THE FINAL, BUT…(BONAVENTURA, BONAVENTURA…)There is no doubt that French refferes couple sisters Bonaventura were the worst part of the Olympic Final in London. Such a great opportunity to see a great spectacle was ruined by their bad performance. They were under level of the Final match definitely. Once again they couldn’t be abolished even we know the fact that they were the first female couple in the history of the Olympic Finals…4. SCANDI DEBACLEDenmark and Sweden are definitely in „contra-rhythm“. After EHF EURO 2010 in Scandinavia, these two NT’s are playing weak and Olympic Games were the right place to show that to the whole handball world…5. SPANISH SPIRITSpanish girls playing with a great motivation for their country. Mange and other girls give 110% of possibilites to reach the goals. Under that circumstances, medal is something what is possible.6. KOREA – CONCERN FOR EUROPEThey were better from Denmark, Sweden and Russia. Korea as Brasil showed that handball isn’t only European sport and thanks them for that.7. BRASIL’S TEARSBrasil played in fantastic form and had the destiny of the future Olympic champion in own hands. Brazilian girls were to close to smash Norway in the quarter-final, but that fact obviosly gave them reason to start celebration before the end of the match. And nobody can beat Norway without whole perfect 60 minutes…8. FRANCE – FROM THE GOLD CONTENDER TO…France was the best team of the Preliminary Round. Once again Krumbholz showed that he has a team of the biggest potential, but one game is enough to ruine all your dreams and plans. That was the match against Montenegro. France hasn’t Bojana Popovic. That was the problem…9. TREFILOV HAS TO (BE) CHANGE(D)Russian NT head-coach, Evgeny Trefilov said that he came to London to win the medal, but Russian girls showed that they aren’t on that level anymore. Silver medal winners from Beijing lost in the quarter-finals. Some changes are neccesary in the Russian handball…10. GREAT BRITAIN – GREAT PROGRESSEnglish female team has got great experience in five matches in London’s „Copper Box“. We hope that this tournament won’t be also a last for these ladies… Bojana PopovićHandball top momentsnorway handball girlsOlympic handball moments ← Previous Story Men’s Olympic Handball TOP 10 moments: “Experts”, “Benga Boys”, “Handball Rule”… Next Story → Mariusz Jurasik “kicked” out of Vive Kielce read more
GEORGIAN CELLARS ARE to be filled in as part of the construction of the Luas Cross City line.Donough Cahill, executive director of the Irish Georgian Society (IGS), told TheJournal.ie that the move was a “further erosion” of the context of Dublin’s Georgian heritage.The cellars under today’s pavements were used during the Georgian era (which spanned 1714 – 1830), and typically held coal. The coal was poured in using openings on the streets, which are still visible today.Photo: Railway Procurement AgencyDublin City Council (DCC) has been told by the Railway Procurement Agency that as part of the Luas Cross City works, the cellars will be filled in. Before this takes place, they will be excavated by archaeologists and the information they gather will be fully recorded.The work will begin following building condition surveys. Among the areas where the cellars are located are Marlborough St, and Parnell St. Work is being rolled out as part of the Luas Cross City works and DCC was informed about the plans at this week’s central area committee meeting.The works will include the investigation and infilling of cellars along the route. The cellars are coal bunkers or vaulted cellars associated with Georgian buildings around the city, and though in some instances such cellars have been demolished, others are lying empty or being used as storage units.Around 300 properties have been surveyed as part of the preparation for the Luas Cross Line construction and 25 known cellars will be impacted by the works – but there are potentially 400 unknown cellars, the council was told.The cellars will be filled in to house utilities that need to be kept out of the way of the Luas track.Photo: Railway Procurement AgencyThe IGS’s Cahill told TheJournal.ie said that “sadly it’s something that happened beforehand, when the previous Luas track was being built on Harcourt St”. He said that the justification for it at the time was that it was necessary to provide support for the increased loads that were going be going over the area.Cahill said the cellar infilling was “a further erosion” of the context of these 18th century cellars, which represent a very specific time in Irish history.During the planning process, the IGS made a submission regarding the proposed Luas route. “The focus of our submission was on the impact of the overhead power cables,” said Cahill. The society said that as College Green is “one of the principal set pieces of Dublin city” in terms of its architectural significance, its importance as a world heritage city would be compromised by overhead power cables.The society suggested the use of underground cables. Permission was granted for overhead power cables on the Luas line, which is similar to what was used when trams first ran in the city. “It’s not a modern phenomenon,” pointed out Cahill.Photo: Railway Procurement AgencyThe IGS welcomes the introduction of an improved transport system in Dublin, particularly the joining of the existing Luas lines, but Cahill said he believes that every effort should be made to ensure that impact of the Luas is minimised.He added that though many of the cellars are not used now, potentially a use could have been found for them in the future.Read: Negotiations ongoing over future of Number 29 Georgian museum> read more

In her memo, Walker said publishers might consider increasing pages, increasing paper or cover stock weight, quarter folding and using heavier stock for inserts. Walker said that although the USPS has delayed implementation before it is unlikely to do so again.Walker said the rate penalty for pieces failing the new test will be severe for mail that is presorted to carrier routes and smaller for less finely sorted mail.

The intent, according to ABM, is to provide publishers and other mailers more time to understand what will pass under the new standards before the penalty program kicks in on October 3.The new standards, commonly referred to as the “droop test,” measure the flexibility of magazines and catalogs and is expected to levy significant fines for publications that are deemed too “droopy.”According to ABM, the penalties will be severe for mail that is “presorted to carrier routes and smaller for less finely sorted mail.” In a letter to members, ABM chairperson and Vance Publishing president and COO Peggy Walker urged publishers—especially those that publish tabloid-size publications—to work with their printers immediately to determine whether their magazines will pass the test and to make any necessary alterations.

Eva Tcheripanoff died in Anchorage on March 22, 2018. The 90-year-old Unangan elder was born in Kashega in 1928. (Photo courtesy of Julia Dushkin)Eva Tcheripanoff — the last person born in the traditional village of Kashega — has died.Listen nowTcheripanoff grew up in the small Unangan community on Unalaska Island and spent the 1930s hunting foxes, eating dry fish and playing with homemade stone dolls.That all changed during World War II, when Kashega was evacuated and never resettled. But she came through the upheaval and lived a long life of 90 years.Eva Tcheripanoff was in her late 70s when she sat down for this interview with historian Ray Hudson.TCHERIPANOFF: (In Unangam Tunuu and English) “I was born in Kashega and I used to play around.”HUDSON: “Eva, when were you born in Kashega?”TCHERIPANOFF: “1928.”HUDSON: “And who were your parents?”TCHERIPANOFF: “My mother was Sophie …”Sophie Borenin was an accomplished basket weaver from Chernofski. Her father, Alec Kudrin, was a Kashega hunter who died shortly before she was born.“We lived with my uncle,” Tcheripanoff said in the interview with Hudson. “Nobody had running water except us.”Eva Tcheripanoff hunted foxes with her Uncle William in the 1930s. (Photo courtesy of Julia Dushkin)Tcheripanoff’s Uncle William fixed up the family home with a tin sink and flush toilet, but they still lived pretty traditionally. The family spoke Unangam Tunuu. They stored their fish in bags made from sea lion stomachs. And Tcheripanoff’s mom even sewed her a kamleika from seal gut. She wore the waterproof parka while paddling around in skin boats, which were just being usurped by metal skiffs.TCHERIPANOFF: “I used to ride in the baidarkas.”HUDSON: “Did you?”TCHERIPANOFF: “Yeah. I tipped over one time in the lake. I was just hollering and hollering! Finally, somebody took a baidarka and picked me up.”Tcheripanoff was the only kid in Kashega, so she had the run of the place until 1942. That’s when the Japanese attacked Dutch Harbor, some 30 miles across Unalaska Island. After the bombings, the American government evacuated Unangan people from the Aleutian and Pribilof region, including about 20 at Kashega.“There was no time to take anything, because we can’t wait for those planes to come back. They might bomb us, you know? That was terrible,” Tcheripanoff said in the Hudson interview.As a child, Eva Tcheripanoff rode horses at the Kashega ranch. (Photo courtesy of Julia Dushkin)That was also the last time Tcheripanoff saw her home. The Unangax spent the rest of the war in internment camps in southeast Alaska — and after the fighting was over, Kashega was never resettled. Tcheripanoff eventually moved to Unalaska in search of a new home. It was hard to do, but it helped that she brought her new husband with her, as she explained to Kay Deffendall on “Eye on Unalaska.”DEFFENDALL: “Hi! This is Kay Deffendall here for another segment of ‘Eye on Unalaska.’ And this week, we’re here with John and Eva Tcheripanoff. Hi, guys!”TCHERIPANOFFS: “Hi.”In this interview, on their 50th wedding anniversary, Tcheripanoff explained how she met John at the Ward Lake internment camp. He was originally from Akutan.DEFFENDALL: “You never knew each other and then you met down in Southeast?”TCHERIPANOFF: “Yes, we did.”DEFFENDALL: “And fell in love immediately?”TCHERIPANOFF: “Yeah. So we got married, and then I had my kid the same month. My oldest daughter. Fast work!”Eva and John Tcheripanoff were married on St. Paul Island while he worked in commercial sealing. They later moved to Unalaska. (Photo courtesy of Julia Dushkin)The Tcheripanoffs had 10 children during their time together, and Eva joked that she loved her husband so much she married him three times. Once, before a judge. Again, before a priest. And finally, at a vow renewal.DEFFENDALL: “You’ve done a lot of things in your life. You’ve seen a lot of changes out here. So are you looking forward to another 50 years?”TCHERIPANOFF: “Sixty years!”When her husband died in 2000, Tcheripanoff moved from their Unalaska home to the senior center. Her daughter Julia Dushkin says it was another difficult transition.“She missed my dad so much,” Dushkin explained.Dushkin says Tcheripanoff made a point of being out in the community, staying active and spending time with her wide circle of friends.“She didn’t care much to be home alone or anything like that,” Dushkin said. “She wanted to be out with friends. You know, go here and go there. Get her nails done.”While life in modern-day Unalaska was different than Tcheripanoff’s childhood in Kashega, Dushkin says some of her favorite memories of her mother can help keep the old ways alive — at least a little bit.“I asked her to teach me how to braid seal gut with the meat and the fat,” Dushkin said. “She took yarn and put it in my fingers. ‘Go like this. Go like that.’ It just tangled up my fingers and I couldn’t. I can’t, you know? [But] I can always remember her telling me, ‘Go this way. Go that way.’”Eva Tcheripanoff died in Anchorage on March 22. Only a few Kashega-born Unangax are still alive today. Their home community has been uninhabited for almost 76 years. read more
On the morning of the day his company goes public — the big day that he has long insisted isn’t that big compared with “the day after, and the following day and all those days to come” — Spotify cofounder and CEO Daniel Ek looked forward and back in an appearance on “CBS This Morning.”“While this is obviously a big day and I’m really proud of my employees, I really just feel like we’re in the early days, not celebrating the end days like so many other companies are doing,” he said. “We’re now a decade into that journey. And I really just feel like we’re in the second inning.”Most of what he discussed on the show were topics and statements he’s said multiple times before, including in a public letter he posted on the company’s website Monday — particularly looking back at the inspiration that led him to found the company in 2006. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Spent more time directly explaining the model and why streaming mattered. And the great news is I think she saw how streaming was growing. I think she saw the fans were asking for it. So eventually when the new album came up, she came to Stockholm and spent some time with our team there figuring out a way that made sense for her.”The streaming giant isn’t using the traditional IPO process for its public offering, but instead a rarely-used process called a direct listing that comes without underwriters. This also means that the company won’t have a share opening price. Instead, it offered some guidance in its filing Wednesday based on private share sales, which have ranged between $90.00 and $132.50 per share this year.Based on these metrics and the number of outstanding shares, Spotify could be worth as much as $23.44 billion. However, Spotify warned that private share sales disclosed last month “may have little or no relation to the opening public price of our ordinary shares on the NYSE or the subsequent trading price of our ordinary shares on the NYSE.”As part of its SEC filing, Spotify revealed Wednesday that it had 159 million monthly active users and 71 million paying premium subscribers at the end of December. The company generated close to $5 billion in revenue in 2017 (€4,090 million), compared to $3.6 billion in 2016. Operating losses for 2017 were $461.2 million, compared to around $425 million in 2016. Popular on Variety read more

The content is provided for information purposes only. Choi said the team came up with the idea of a “flexible divider inside the pod that can be moved to cordon off the area where astronauts remove their suits from where they sleep.” The proposed system has the potential to double the reachable distance from the lunar base, increasing the reachable area by a factor of four.Choi in Popular Science summarized the components in their design: It is made up of “an inflatable pod that sleeps two; a reflective shield to prevent the sun’s rays from roasting explorers; life support systems on the rover that will supply oxygen, water and food, maintain the habitat’s temperature, scrub out carbon dioxide, and remove excess humidity; and a flexible roll-out solar array to supply the shelter’s power and recharge the rover’s batteries.”MIT’s Samuel Schreiner, one of the study’s authors, said in Popular Science that the system, when packed, takes up about half as much space as an average refrigerator. Journal information: Acta Astronautica “The system is intended to enable two astronauts, exploring with an unpressurized rover, to remove their spacesuits for an 8-hr rest away from the lunar base and then conduct a second day of surface exploration before returning to base,” they wrote.They noted how lunar surface exploration systems will need to evolve from a system designed for short-term sorties to a system that can support longer durations. That goal is what they have in mind; they presented their conceptual design, they said, in the context of next-generation lunar exploration. The authors said their system will enable two astronauts to conduct a full day of lunar surface exploration, sleep and recover within the inflatable habitat at a location away from the lunar base and then conduct a second day of exploration before returning to the base. More information: An overnight habitat for expanding lunar surface exploration, Acta Astronautica, Volume 112, July–August 2015, Pages 158–170. DOI: 10.1016/j.actaastro.2015.03.012AbstractThis paper presents the conceptual design and analysis of a system intended to increase the range, scientific capability, and safety of manned lunar surface exploration, requiring only a modest increase in capability over the Apollo mission designs. The system is intended to enable two astronauts, exploring with an unpressurized rover, to remove their space suits for an 8-h rest away from the lunar base and then conduct a second day of surface exploration before returning to base. This system is composed of an Environmental Control and Life Support System on the rover, an inflatable habitat, a solar shield and a solar power array. The proposed system doubles the distance reachable from the lunar base, thus increasing the area available for science and exploration by a factor of four. In addition to increasing mission capability, the proposed system also increases fault tolerance with an emergency inflatable structure and additional consumables to mitigate a wide range of suit or rover failures. The mass, volume, and power analyses of each subsystem are integrated to generate a total system mass of 124 kg and a volume of 594 L, both of which can be accommodated on the Apollo Lunar Roving Vehicle with minor improvements. (Phys.org)—People have felt the excitement of seeing their courageous space heroes embark from the Earth to the moon. Those same heroes went up because, beyond completing the journey, they hoped to—in one word— explore. That has been a problem, said Charles Q. Choi in Popular Science, who referred to the limitations in “hang time.” He wrote, “The Apollo program landed a dozen men there from 1969 to 1972, but they spent a total of only three days and six hours actually walking the surface. That’s because they couldn’t stray from their lunar lander and its life support.”Now a team of researchers have devised a way to extend a stay and extend the explorers’ reach beyond the lunar lander. The answer is in packable, inflatable tents. The astronauts could stray from the lunar lander to spend more time on the actual surface of the moon. The team wrote that, “Instead of returning to base, the astronauts would then enter the habitat, doff their suits,and prepare for a second day of lunar exploration (eat,sleep,hygiene,etc.).”Boing Boing said that the researchers designed a pill-shaped inflatable moon tent that sleeps two. The tent fills with oxygen. Their paper, which is available online, details their work, and is titled, “An overnight habitat for expanding lunar surface exploration,” in Acta Astronautica.The authors are from MIT (Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics) and from Brown (Department of Geological Sciences). © 2015 Phys.org A cutaway view of the operational system in its deployed state.

As Boing Boing said, it is a system that protects explorers from the sun’s rays and it helps to keep out moon dust from sleeping quarters. Moon dust can be dangerous. Popular Science said it collects on an astronaut’s suit. “The dust is electrostatically charged and sticks to everything, the way a rubbed balloon attracts lint. It is also dangerous, each grain similar to a shard of glass.” Choi in Popular Science said that lunar dust can cause skin and eye irritation and corrosion. When inhaled, it can possibly cause lower-airway issues.

There are a handful of reasons for the Arizona Cardinals to have interest in former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau.With Todd Bowles leaving to become the head coach of the New York Jets, the team has a hole to fill, and Arians is familiar with the coach from their time together in Pittsburgh.Of course, there is one other reason.“There’s not a greater coach in the world,” he told Frank Bodani of YDR.com LeBeau, 77, has been coaching in the NFL since 1973, and spent the last 11 seasons running one of the league’s better defenses in Pittsburgh. But the organization decided to let him go, and Arians, who is coming off a season in which his team won 11 games, is interested in bringing his talents aboard. Of course, LeBeau would not necessarily be the team’s defensive coordinator. It has been reported that Arians would like to see the Hall of Famer come in as more of a senior adviser to a younger coach. There is plenty of value in his experience, and there’s no doubt LeBeau has a wealth of knowledge to impart.“I learned so much football from veteran coaches,” Arians said. “I love people who love the history of the game. These young guys only know one system, and when that fails they don’t have any answers. That’s why young head coaches fail.”It was reported last week that LeBeau was going to meet with Arians and the Cardinals this week. It has also noted that Arians would like to hire his new defensive coordinator from within, with likely candidates being defensive backs coach Nick Rapone and outside linebackers coach James Bettcher.
