Part of a light aircraft fell in Thalangama this morning on a playground in the area, the police media unit said.The object from the aircraft was said ti be approximately 2 fee long. Investigations are underway.

Three people at the Pabbo camp have died from the illness, said the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).The camp was hit on 24 October by a severe storm that ripped the roofs off most of the 5,500 shelters and washed away food rations.At least 1.6 million people in northern Uganda have been displaced by the 18-year long conflict.

When the Brock men’s and women’s basketball Badgers host Ryerson Rams this Wednesday Jan. 28, some history will be born. Welcome to a twin bill that is officially Brock’s first annual President’s Basketball Game.Inspired by the spirit that swept the campus for last fall’s sold-out basketball home openers, the President’s Game will be a yearly fixture in the home schedules for the Brock hoop teams.The women’s game starts at 6 pm, while the men go at 8. A first wave of tickets for the games quickly sold out, though another lot of tickets may go on sale Tuesday at the Walker Complex Welcome Desk. Game night giveaways in the gym will include Brock swag, Toronto Maple Leafs tickets, and a chance to win $1, 000 at halftime.This year’s inaugural event has added meaning, as the President’s Game salutes and celebrates David S. Howes, the long-time Brock supporter, athletics booster and University trustee who helped raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support Badger athletes. Howes died on Jan. 12In the Bob Davis Gym on Wednesday evening, Brock President Jack Lightstone will do a ceremonial tip-off shortly after returning to campus from a memorial service for Howes.“It’s a wonderful way to honour Dave, and he would love it,” said Lightstone. “He was passionate about enabling young people to participate in sports and recreation, at Brock and throughout the local community. Dave would be very, very pleased to see the gym, on his night, packed with students cheering on the Brock teams.”Both Brock coaches praised the event and its impact.“I’m very excited about the game and what it means for Brock and the Niagara region,” said women’s head coach Si Khounviseth. “The buzz and excitement is something I have not seen since the home opener, and it’s something I hope we can grow for all of our home games. This shows Badger pride, and how athletics can enhance the student life experience.”Men’s head coach Charles Kissi echoed the sentiment.“It’s tremendous to see the transformation and culture at Brock,” said Kissi. “Not only for this game, but I hope this continues in the future. It not only brings a sense of pride to our players, but also the entire Badgers community.”The game will be broadcast live by BrockTV on with Justin Bregman beginning with pre-game coverage at 5:45 p.m.  The game will also be broadcast locally in Niagara on TVCogeco, in Toronto on Rogers TV, while the women’s game will also be available on Brock Radio.The President’s Game was created as way to sustain the campus buzz from last fall’s home openers. Brock’s Marketing and Communications staff worked with University Services and the Athletics Department to establish the theme and organize an evening that gives students a chance to belt out their school spirit. read more

first_imgNichol yelled obscenities while banging a metal gate into a cow who had just given birth and repeatedly stamped and kicked the newborn calves to get them to stand up.RSPCA prosecutor Lindi Meyer said the attack took place at 9.30am when the part-time stockman was working in the barn.Describing one incident, she said: “He threw a newborn calf to the floor and kicked and stamped on it seven times in a row. Needless to say, the violence was unprovoked and unnecessary.”An RSPCA inspector visited Nichol’s home where he admitted it was him in the footage and said his behaviour was “disgusting”. Owen Nichol previously admitted charges of causing unnecessary suffering to animalsCredit:Claire Hayhurst/PA Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Farm owner James Read, who described Nichol as an “exemplary” employee, admitted he was shocked by the footage.Ms Meyer cast doubt on Nichol’s claim it was a “one-off occasion” and said the footage showed the attacks were repeated and involved verbal and physical violence.Charity vet Andrew Biggs described the attack as the worst violence he had seen in 35 years in the job.Mr Biggs, former president of the British Cattle Veterinary Association, said in a statement: “It is good and accepted practice to encourage calves to suckle. Stress or fright is not conducive to good maternal behaviour.”He said the cows could be seen swishing their tails, clearly stressed, adding: “The operator, from the start of the video, has shown totally unacceptable behaviour to these cows and calves.”Nichol, who also farms his sheep with his father, said in a statement: “I have my own sheep and if I saw someone doing that to my sheep I would feel like Mr Read does.” Nichol, of Taunton, admitted two charges of animal cruelty after he “just flipped” and was sacked by the farm owner after the footage emerged.He claimed it was the only time he had treated the animals in such a way in the year he worked at the farm while completing a college course in agriculture.Speaking to an RSPCA inspector, Nichol blamed his behaviour on breaking up with his girlfriend months beforehand and also said his grandmother was ill.Harrowing video footage showed the farm worker shouting “f—— c—” in the faces of the two-day-old calves and forcing the cattle to their feet. Owen Nichol Owen Nichol Nichol kicked its nursing mother in the face and slammed a metal gate against the animal, which had given birth just two days before.The footage was shot by activists from campaign group Animal Equality after a tip-off from a member of the public at Pyrland Farm in Taunton, Somerset, in December.center_img Nichol was sentenced to 12 weeks jail, suspended for one year, and told to undertake a rehabilitation activity for 30 days and 150 hours unpaid work.He was disqualified for two years for owning, keeping or participating in keeping any animal farmed for commercial purposes, including arranging transport or dealing. It will be 12 months before Nichol can challenge it.A victim surcharge £115 was imposed, as well as a £300 contribution to costs of prosecution. Ms Meyer said: “It is a great concern that this is a young man employed to care for animals and on a number of occasions he has lost his temper.”Martin Winter, mitigating, said: “The apprenticeship has restrictions with the maximum working week of 40 hours, and when he started there were more staff working with the herd at the farm.”The numbers dropped and as a result the workload increased. His job was to try to get the calves to suckle. He knew if he did not succeed they would be euthanased. He was trying too hard, taking things to heart and becoming frustrated.” A young farm worker who threw a newborn calf to the floor and repeatedly stamped on it before kicking its mother in the head blamed his behaviour on breaking up with his girlfriend months earlier.Owen Nichol, 18, was secretly filmed by an animal rights charity carrying out the abuse at the dairy farm where he worked as an apprentice.He subjected the cows to a 25-minute ordeal, kicking and stamping on a newborn calf seven times, and shouted “I f—— hate you, you little c—” after throwing it to the floor.Warning: the video below contains graphic images. It was released by Animal Equality to highlight abuse towards animals. Owen Nichol outside Taunton Magistrates’ Court on WednesdayCredit:Claire Hayhurst/PA Nichol had been offered a job on an arable farm in Hampshire, after being sacked and still aspired to a career in agriculture, the court was told.Mr Winter added: “He was in a bad frame of mind. He lost control of the animals and he lost control of himself.”Magistrate Dr Peter Reed said: “The offence was deliberate and sustained. It involved kicks, stamping, hitting including to the head, and shouting at the animals.”We believe these animals did suffer a relatively high level of suffering, for a short period. The vet described it as the worst case of abuse he had seen in 35 years.”Nichol had been warned he could be put behind bars with his actions, but was spared jail at Taunton Magistrates’ Court.Dr Reed said: “You were working beyond your capabilities. You were working unsupervised, doing long shifts and were sleep deprived. You had limited training, and co-operated with the inspector.” He was trying too hard, taking things to heart and becoming frustratedMartin Winter, defendinglast_img read more

first_imgAs I sat in the theater at the AT&T developers conference just before CES this year, Motorola announced the Atrix. A decent looking, crazy-powerful phone that was coming to help shore up AT&T’s lineup now that Verizon was getting the iPhone. Cool enough phone, I thought, but what makes it special? My question was answered almost immediately when among the accessories for the phone came an entire laptop. The Motorola Lapdock is a cool idea by anyone’s imagining, albeit not their best seller. To help with this, Motorola stated that the Lapdock accessory would become available for all future Android smartphones (as would WebTop).Fast forward to this week, when Verizon’s Lapdock-worthy smartphone finally made it to market. The Droid Bionic is powerful enough when you consider it is the first dual-core 4G LTE smartphone. Add onto it that one of the accessories turns it into a laptop, and you’ve got a pretty cool handset for the student on the go or the savvy jetsetter, right? As it turns out, there’s a kind of hitch.Upon receiving the Bionic, one of the first things I wanted to do was stick it in the Lapdock for the Motorola Atrix and give it a whirl. The Lapdock’s larger screen, 10+ hours of battery life, and the ability to browse on a proper web browser are pretty appealing features to have with you on the go. Plus the Lapdock is smaller than a Chromebook or Macbook Air, and just as light. A funny thing happened when I tried, though. It turns out that the HDMI port and the MicroUSB ports are flipped backwards compared to the Atrix.This means that if you have an Atrix dock, or if you tried to get one on the cheap from eBay, or maybe you decided to make the switch from AT&T to Verizon because they have a phone that supports this $300 accessory, you’re out of luck.Why have Motorola and/or Verizon chosen to do this? What benefit could there be to have an entirely separate product that is imperceptibly identical until you try to use it on something else? I find it hard to believe that the profit margins would be affected so badly that it was decided that a different model was needed to keep those tricky consumers from trying to sneak one by.Neither Verizon nor Motrola have offered a statement to explain the reason for this, but for now be careful when ordering a Lapdock for your Motorola smartphone, because it might not be the right one.last_img read more

first_img 3 min read Despite our best intentions, keeping a houseplant alive can be a struggle for a lot of us. But that vague wave of sadness you feel when you end up unceremoniously dumping your potted pal in the bin is about to reach a new and slightly disturbing level, as researchers from MIT have found a way to use robotics to tap into plants’ human-like characteristics.Meet Elowan, a “cybernetic lifeform” that connects a houseplant with a machine that responds to its basic need for light (and is presumably named after the sentient plant creatures in Starflight 3). When a regular plant needs light, it fires off internal electrical signals that cause it to bend and grow towards it. When Elowan needs light, these internal electrical signals are interpreted by a machine that then simply wheels the plant towards the light. The plant can essentially move itself around because it needs to.Related: Don’t Get Beaten by a Robot: 3 Ways to Ensure Your Job Survives Automation”Plants have natural bioelectrochemical signals inside them,” explains Harpeet Sareen, assistant professor at Parsons School of Design. “They get excited in response to environmental conditions and conduct these signals between tissues and organs. Such electrical signals are produced in response to changes in light, gravity, mechanical stimulation, temperature, wounding, and more. They are electrically active systems readily occurring in nature.”So that’s the how. But anyone who’s familiar with The Little Shop of Horrors or The Day of the Triffids might have some questions about the why. As Sareen explains, the project was designed to explore the deep integration of technology with nature. “When we create interactive devices, there’s two primary components to it: ‘sensing’ in the broadest sense what the user wants to do and responding/displaying an output as a feedback. Usually, we create artificial electronics to do such functions for us but plants inherently have such capabilities. They can sense and they can display — they are already an interface.”Related: Why Pinterest Is Driving Social Engagement (and How You Can Take Advantage)What’s more, Sareen continues, is that plants are self-powered, self-regenerating and self-fabricating organisms. “In short, plants might be the best kind of ‘electronics’ we have, something we can only strive to get to in the artificial world. Much of our thinking around interfaces/interactive devices has spun up from industrial way of thinking of having to create everything from ground up artificially. But if nature has those capabilities such as of sensing (signals inside plants), response (plant movement, color change, leaves opening/closing, growth and so on), then why not tap into those capabilities of what nature does best.”Sareen believes this Avatar-like technology could form the future of interaction. But it’s still very early days for the work. Next on the agenda is turning the project into a marketable tinkering kit, “so people start to understand nature much more than what they are used to,” says Sareen — and perhaps then give a second thought to the functional lifeforms they’ll end up turfing in the trash the next time they forget to water their plants.

first_imgA bill establishing a national investment fund to manage future revenues from hydrocarbons will go to the House plenum on Friday, although strong disagreements remain.Following a discussion at the House energy committee on Tuesday, Greens leader George Perdikis said the parties have been asked to withdraw all their amendments to the government legislation, save one that would bar using the funds to pay down the national debt.“We’ve been asked to withdraw our amendments, which to us are fundamental and have to do with matters of principle,” Perdikis said.“Some think it more important to convey political messages instead, advocating that it is more significant to cater to the demands of the Turkish Cypriot leadership.”He was understood to be alluding to the Turkish Cypriot demand for a say in the administration of natural gas revenues, something the government rejects as long as the island remains divided.It was not clear what Perdikis meant given that, as it stands, the bill contains no reference to the Turkish Cypriots.The Greens leader also criticised the philosophy of the bill, noting that it is bereft of any provisions to wean the country off polluting fossil fuels, or provisions for developing renewable energy sources.Though agreeing that the funds must not be used to pay down the national debt, Perdikis reiterated that nonetheless a small amount should be set aside to fund renewable energy sources, the green economy, the social insurance fund and social housing.As it is, the bill stipulates that as long as the public debt is above 80 per cent of GDP, half the hydrocarbons revenue would go towards reducing this debtWhen it is below 80 per cent but above the limit of 60 per cent – set by the Maastricht criteria – only 25 per cent of revenue would go towards the public debt and the rest would be used for the creation of reserves.Opposition politicians have argued that this will give any administration carte blanche to act in a fiscally irresponsible way.It’s also understood that, under the bill, members of the fund’s management committee would not face civil liability in the event of gross negligence.Moreover, the bill does not empower the auditor-general to check the finances of the hydrocarbons fund – although other mechanisms have been put in place.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityWe protect our home with earthquake insuranceCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

organised I feel good and I’m always finding my route to the line "Five stage wins that’s remarkable at the Tour de France" Having won back-to-back stages for the second time in this Tour Kittel will have a couple of days out of the limelight in the Pyrenees now as race leader Chris Froome and his rivals take centre stage Kittel who has 14 stage wins in total since 2013 increased his lead in the green jersey competition to 133 points over Australian Michael Matthews and said he is now hoping to hold onto the jersey all the way to Paris "Of course this doesn’t come for free it’s hard work and

the 11th stage ‘So close’ Last year he was part of a late four-man breakaway alongside Froome and world champion Peter Sagan but was beaten to the line by both of those "It was so close I’m a little bit disappointed but what can I say" Bodnar who revealed his father had died two months ago said "Like last year it was so close "I can be happy maybe we can try in other stages why not" Bodnar was part of a three-man breakaway from the gun of the 2035 kilometres stage from Eymet to Pau alongside Italian Marco Marcato and Frederik Backaert of Belgium "When I saw one time with 3 kilometres to go the bunch was still 200 metres (back) I was thinking I could still do it" he added "But the last 400 metres was really really hard for me and the bunch was going really fast "That was that I think 10 seconds more then we could celebrate something nice" Froome maintained his 18-second lead over Italy’s Fabio Aru with Frenchman Romain Bardet third at 51sec And from Thursday the yellow jersey battle will resume in the mountains with back-to-back Pyrenean stages Briton Froome said his Sky team will be wary of rivals attacking from distance particularly the likes of Nairo Quintana and Alberto Contador who have already lost significant time and sit more than two and five minutes respectively off the lead "The number one priority for us is not to allow anyone to come back into the GC (overall) game — someone who’s already lost time "For me personally I’ve got to keep a close eye on Fabio Aru it’s only 18 seconds — I’m going to have to stick to him like glue tomorrow" But Quintana amongst others is planning to make a move "If I’m strong I’ll attack We’ll see" he said Contador meanwhile crashed twice on Wednesday taking to four his total number of spills in the race He’s been nursing injuries since Sunday but said anyone questioning whether he would go on is barking up the wrong tree "It’s true that this Tour is pushing me to my psychological limits but I’m telling you if
