Fire Managers Begin Containment Efforts on Mammoth Fire

Photo courtesy of the US Forest ServicePress ReleaseFire managers will now begin suppression efforts on the perimeter of the Mammoth Fire, which was a lightning-caused fire that has been managed for forest benefit. The fire is currently 800 acres. The fire has been beneficial to the land, helping restore the ecosystem by clearing up dead vegetation and downed trees from beetle kill, as well as disturbing the root system needed for aspen growth.During the hot, dry conditions the last few days, the fire began slight movement on the northwest perimeter of the fire. Forest officials had previously determined that if the fire approached this drainage, fire objectives would change from a managed fire and suppression effort would begin. As the fire approached this point on Monday Sept 2, more firefighters and air support were ordered to start working on containment.Crews have been inserted along the logging road, to work on a contingency line. Another crew was inserted from Skyline Drive, to begin work from the top and identify defensible areas to stop fire progression, though the fire is still slow moving in that area. Helicopters have been used to drop water on the hotspots at the bottom of the drainage and were successful in slowing the fire growth and keep it from moving up the north slope. Some rain occurred Tuesday, and more is predicted today and Thursday, which will help with containment efforts.Due to increased fire activity and with more crews and equipment in the area, forest managers are asking the public to stay out of the area and trails around the fire. With the aircraft now in use, a TFR is in place and personal aircraft, including drones, are prohibited over the area.Fire managers intend on 100% containment around the perimeter of the fire. However, due to the dangers that hazard trees pose to firefighters, the interior smokes that continue to smolder will be allowed to naturally burn out. Smoke will continue to be visible from Highway 31 as the fire burns internally, and will likely be visible until a large amount of precipitation is received. Once containment is reached, firefighters will continue to patrol the area, holding and securing the fireline until the fire is completely out.The fire is about 29 miles northwest of Huntington, Utah and just southwest of the Miller Flat Junction with SR-31. The fire started on July 23, 2019 and was ignited by lightning.Although there are no fire restrictions at this time, visitors are asked to use caution when building fires.

Moins de papillons à cause de la sécheresse

first_imgMoins de papillons à cause de la sécheresse ?Afin de mieux comprendre les impacts de la sécheresse sur les papillons, et de déterminer si leur population a diminué cette année, l’Observatoire de la biodiversité des Jardins lance en partenariat avec l’association Noé Conservation, un vaste appel à témoins. Les Français sont invités à observer les papillons de leur jardin afin de compléter les observations faites par les spécialistes.Le Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, qui pilote l’Observatoire de la biodiversité des Jardins (OBJ), lance dans un communiqué un appel à témoins. Alors que les spécialistes évoquent à l’issue de leurs premières observations une “année exceptionnelle tant la sécheresse a été intense et longue”, l’Observatoire et l’association Noé Conservation invitent les Français à étudier les papillons de leur jardin, afin de déterminer s’ils sont cette année moins nombreux à cause du ce climat doux et sec.À lire aussiD’après une étude, le Canada se réchauffe deux fois plus vite que le reste du mondePour le moment, le Muséum indique qu’une grande diversité d’espèces, mais en faible abondance a été observée dans les milieux secs. En revanche, les lépidoptères semblent plus nombreux en milieu forestier. “Il est possible que la sécheresse ait un impact négatif, en particulier parce que les plantes nourricières des chenilles seraient moins abondantes. Par ailleurs, plusieurs espèces du début d’été ont déjà éclos alors que subsistent encore de nombreuses espèces printanières expliquant ainsi la diversité des papillons observés” explique le communiqué.Depuis le début de la saison, le nombre d’observateurs est moins important que les autres années.  Un fait qui tend à prouver que les papillons sont réellement moins nombreux cette année. “Lorsqu’il y a peu de papillons dans le jardin, il est moins motivant d’observer, ce qui se traduit par une baisse de la participation” explique en effet le Muséum, appelant à une mobilisation accrue des observateurs, même si les papillons sont rares dans leurs jardins. Ils sont invités à envoyer leurs commentaires à l’OBJ. “Les conditions actuelles sont remarquables, et méritent des observations continues. En effet, avec le réchauffement climatique, de tels épisodes météorologiques exceptionnels pourraient être plus fréquents, et avoir un impact sur la biodiversité. Les suivis comme l’OBJ sont alors des outils irremplaçables pour comprendre ces effets” souligne le Muséum.Pour participer à ce comptage, il suffit d’inscrire son jardin sur les sites www.noeconservation.org ou www.vigienature.mnhn.fr, puis de suivre la démarche expliquée pour observer et compter les papillons.

Poway developer breaks ground on new downtown development

first_imgPoway developer breaks ground on new downtown development Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Updated: 10:32 PM KUSI Newsroom August 20, 2018 KUSI Newsroom, Official renderings of “Outpost”SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Local real estate developer Capexco broke ground Monday on a $35 million mixed-use development in downtown Poway.The new development, named Outpost, is located on a 1.58-acre parcel of land and is expected to include 53 residential units, an urban food hall and a 20,000-square-foot fitness center by Crunch Fitness.Outpost is the first development under the updated Poway Road Specific Plan, which the Poway City Council approved in December 2017. Poway Mayor Steve Vaus and the city council approved the Outpost project in March; it is expected to be completed by fall 2019.Trent Claughton, president and CEO of Poway-based Capexco, said Outpost is named as such because he sees Poway as a destination for all of San Diego County.“Outpost marks an important milestone in Poway’s history that we hope will become a model for revitalization and creating a walkable downtown district for Poway,” Claughton said. “It brings needed housing and compelling new food and fitness concepts to Poway in a vibrant live, play and work mixed- use development.”Outpost will be comprised of three buildings that will house the project’s amenities, a pedestrian paseo between buildings, outdoor seeing, a patio above the food hall and underground parking.“This project will be a catalyst for achieving” the city’s dream of creating a town center, Vaus said. “Outpost will offer new places to live, work and play while helping fuel the city’s economy.” Posted: August 20, 2018last_img read more

As part of the agreement, the companies will jointly develop cloud solutions in Microsoft Azure, according to a release. Sony might also use Microsoft Azure for its game and content streaming services. The efforts will also include building better tools for content creators.”Sony has always been a leader in both entertainment and technology, and the collaboration we announced today builds on this history of innovation,” said Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, in a release. “Our partnership brings the power of Azure and Azure AI to Sony to deliver new gaming and entertainment experiences for customers.”Also, the companies will explore working together in the areas of semiconductors and artificial intelligence.Both Sony and Microsoft revealed new details on new gaming consoles in April, which are expected to be released next year. Sony said its next-gen console — likely called the PlayStation 5 — will be AMD-based, support high-end graphics features like ray tracing and 8K output, and switch to high-speed SSD storage. Microsoft followed with the announcement of the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, a late-in-life addition to the Xbox One line that finally ditches the optical drive. $520 at HP DJI’s answer to GoPro’s action cameras is rugged little model that’s shockproof, dustproof and waterproof down to 11 meters.

Sarah Tew/CNET Chris Monroe/CNET DJI Osmo Action camera: $261 (save $89) 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. What’s cooler: A snapshot of a firework exploding in front of you, or full 360-degree video of all the fireworks and all the reactions to seeing them? Oooh, ahhh, indeed. At $250, the compact Rylo dual-lens camera is selling for its lowest price yet. And for an extra $50, you can get the bundle that includes the waterproof housing.This deal runs through Sept. 3; it usually costs $500. Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. Comments See It I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. 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. An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free.center_img $999 Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case: $155 (save $45) Read the AirPods review See at Amazon Lenovo Smart Clock: $59.99 (save $20) Amazon Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student.

Hold your nets Chilkat Inlet subsistence fishery delayed another week

first_imgThe Chilkat River in 2009. (Photo courtesy of Dave Bezaire/Flickr Creative Commons)Subsistence fishermen near Haines will have to wait another week to throw their nets into Chilkat Inlet. A need to conserve king salmon has prompted the second delay this season.Listen nowThe subsistence fishery in Chilkat Inlet usually opens in June, at the same time as the first commercial gillnet opening. But this year, concerns over historically low king salmon numbers delayed the start of subsistence fishing there until July 15.Now, that date is being pushed off even further.Mark Sogge manages the subsistence fishery for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in Haines. He said Chinook are once again the reason for the delay.“We’re getting a lot of mature king salmon in the fish wheels right now,” Sogge said. “In fact, like 65 percent of the entire run we’ve had through in the last week and a bit. We think that it’s quite likely that there are a lot of fish holding in Chilkat Inlet still. Given the fact that the run is as weak as it is, we want to assure that we get every fish that we can up.”Sogge said the timing of the kings in the river was unexpected.“It’s about a week late, we think, so far,” Sogge said. “The timing is off and so that pushes us back a week.”Chilkat Inlet is now scheduled to open for subsistence fishing July 22. For the first week, until July 28, no fishing is allowed north of Letnikof Point.There are a few other restrictions on the subsistence fishery to take into account this year.A portion of the Chilkat River will be closed to fishing until July 31, up to mile 19 on the Haines Highway.Mile 19 to the Wells Bridge is open. But that section of the river is closed Sunday through Tuesday until the end of July.Subsistence fishing is also open on the Chilkoot side.King salmon in the Chilkat River are facing about a 10-year downward trend. Last year marked the lowest escapement estimate in about 25 years. In 2017, the in-river run is forecasted to be just 634 mature fish.Concerns over low numbers of kings have prompted changes across the board. Fish and Game placed extra restrictions on the commercial gillnet fleet. And sport fishing for Chinook near Haines and Skagway is nearly nonexistent this year.last_img read more

Uber launches UberRUSH an ondemand delivery service to disrupt transportation sector

first_imgUber, the San Francisco-based ride-sharing company which has been making deep inroads into the Indian taxi sector, has unveiled its future, an on-demand delivery service called UberRUSH.With the launch of UberRUSH, the company is forging ahead with its strategy to disrupt and re-engineer the transportation sector, first in the United States, and then across the globe. The idea is to dominate every segment of the transportation industry.UberRUSH was unveiled to operate in San Francisco, New York and Chicago. Since last summer, Uber has been experimenting with pilot programmes of the delivery programme,  when it partnered with a handful of New York City-based businesses, including Rent The Runway, Birchbox and Baublebar, according to entrepreneur. com.UberRUSH will pick up and deliver everything from a meal to an item of clothing to a bouquet of flowers. Deliveries are made by foot, bike messenger and car, depending on the location and delivery, entrepreneur.com reports. The company is especially targeting small businesses and gives them hope that access to more customers is possible without having to own or manage their own delivery fleets.In a blog post announcing its new service, Uber said “If every local business delivered, we’d all save time and energy. But most simply can’t. Day-to-day operations are already complicated and delivery can cause all sorts of logistical headaches.”Uber will vary its pricing city by city. In New York, for instance, a delivery that travels less than 1 mile costs $5.50 and each additional mile is $2.50. In San Francisco, deliveries start at $6 within a mile and each additional mile costs $3, entrepreneur.com reported.Uber is celebrating its fifth anniversary with the launch of UberRUSH. entrepreneur.com notes that what started out as UberCab in San Francisco has grown into a beast in the transportation world. The company now operates in 300 cities in 58 countries, has more than 1 million drivers working on its platform and is valued at more than $40 billion, with some new estimates reportedly stretching as high north as $50 billion. Uber’s founder and CEO Travis Kalanick has become a billionaire five times over. He is currently worth $5.3 billion.last_img read more

Onlinefocused brands may face offline stores wrath

first_imgNokia 3 goes on sale in India; [ In Picture: Mr. Subhash Chandra, MD, Sangeetha Mobiles, Mr. T.S Sridhar, General Manager -Sales, South, HMD Global, the very first customer, Sachin in the country to have received Nokia 3, in Bengaluru on June 16]HMD Global Oy & Nokia Press KitSeveral brick-and-mortar stores, especially mobile phone retailers, have closed ranks to unilaterally oppose brands that offer online discounts and launch online-only models at lower prices. Major cell phone retail chains such as Sangeetha, Poorvika and Big C have decided that they will not sell the online-focussed brand Realme.The move follows the return of normalcy at online retail giants Flipkart and Amazon after operations were impacted by the implementation of revised e-commerce policy on Feb 1. Offline retailers fear the return of deep discounts after online majors made changes to conform to the rehashed policy.Offline cellphone stores will not cooperate with brands if they continue to launch online- exclusive models at lower prices than what is available offline or if models are sold at a discount onlineBesides mobile phone and information technology product retailers, companies selling consumer electronics are also a worried lot. Outlets selling IT products such as laptops have entered into an agreement with top brands including Dell, HP, Lenovo, Acer and Asus to sell products at the same prices as those online with any kind of losses being covered by the manufacturers.Brick-and-mortar store associations representing over 70,000 outlets had risen up against FDI-funded online retailers and had asked the government to curb deep discounting, which was hurting sales at physical stores. From Right–Eshwar Chandrasekaran, Lead, Mi TV Business, Manu Jain, Vice President, Xiaomi and Managing Director, Xiaomi India, Sudeep Sahu, Product Manager, Mi TV Business India & Raghu Reddy, Head – category & online sales, Xiaomi India.Xiaomi India Press Kit”Offline cellphone stores will not cooperate with brands if they continue to launch online-exclusive models at lower prices than what is available offline or if models are sold at a discount online,” Arvinder Khurana, president of All India Mobile Retailers Association told The Economic Times. “Retailers are forced to take this course as it has become a matter of their livelihood,” Khurana added.Pact on pricingAnother grouping Federation of All India IT Associations secretary Saket Kapoor said it has entered into a pact with large manufacturers on pricing parity. While AIMRA represents over 25,000 stores, FAIITA has 30,000 outlets under its umbrella.  “The agreement includes no scope for any online-exclusive model and if the manufacturers do launch them, they have to offer it to offline trade first who have the right of first refusal,” Kapoor told the newspaper. The tug of war is having its effect on online retailers as smartphone sales through online portals is likely to decline in the current quarter. According to research firms, IDC and Counterpoint Technology Market Research, the share of online sales is set to decline to 26-27 per cent in the current quarter from 30-31 percent earlier.

Ranking Every Christmas Season Console Debut

first_imgStay on target Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)’Astral Chain’ and Other Dumb Nintendo Songs The Christmas season is big money for lots of people, but few rake in the bucks quite like video game makers. For decades, games and systems have been top-sellers, and the holidays are almost unanimously when new systems are released for big sales. But not all holiday console debuts are created equal – for every one that breaks records, there’s one that sinks miserably into failure. We went through the history and put every Christmas season console release in order of quality. For the purposes of this article, we’re considering any release after mid-September as a “holiday season,” especially since early shipments are usually fairly limited. We’re also sticking with North American release dates.3DO, 1993Panasonic’s ill-fated console hit stores in October of 1993 with tons of promotion – Time Magazine even awarded it their “Product Of The Year” award – but with a wildly expensive retail price of seven hundred dollars and exactly one game available, it was all for naught. The system wasn’t bad from a technical standpoint, but developers had problems with the hardware and many of the original slate of titles set to hit by Christmas were delayed until 1994, leaving Panasonic with a pricey piece of kit that played pack-in game read more

first_imgFuel prices at the pump will be ₡4.74 cheaper per liter starting next month, following orders signed by the Public Services Regulatory Authority (ARESEP) last Friday.ARESEP officially informed the state-owned Costa Rican Oil Refinery (RECOPE) that it has to lower fuel prices in order to return to the public ₡1,109 million ($2 million) spent improperly.Results from an audit conducted in late 2014 at the request of lawmakers from the Legislative Commission on Public Spending and Income Control found irregularities in expenses reported by RECOPE during the expansion and modernization of its refinery in the Caribbean port of Limón.According to the audit RECOPE improperly included project costs such as salaries, airline tickets, travel expenses and professional services in one of its requests to ARESEP to raise fuel prices. Those expenses should have never been charged to Costa Ricans at gas pumps, the investigation found.The price cut announcement comes just a week after a price hike went into effect. Higher per liter prices ranging from ₡16 to ₡29 entered into force last week for Diesel, Super and Plus gasoline.

Southport Connecticut – Reported by Elite Travele

first_imgSouthport, Connecticut – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineIt takes a striking space and a special design touch to stand out at an address filled with one-of-a-kind accommodations, and the new Woodward-Newman Presidential Suite at the Delamar Southport in Southport, Connecticut, has all that and more. The 2,900-square-foot Presidential-style accommodation spreads across the hotel’s top floor with three bedrooms, and unfolds as a captivating setting for multiple uses, including weekend getaways, long-term stays, executive-style meetings and events from baby showers to dinner parties and Sweet 16 celebrations.The Woodward-Newman Suite is named for local legends Joanne Woodward and the late Paul Newman, who called nearby Westport home. The celebrity couple’s philanthropic efforts – most notably supporting the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for seriously ill children – have long served as inspiration and a charitable cause for managing partner of Greenwich Hospitality Group and owner of Delamar Southport, Charles Mallory.Continuing the tradition of employing multiple designers to create individual spaces throughout the hotel, Mallory enlisted local interior designer Rebecca Hathaway Lynch to fashion the Woodward-Newman Suite with chic New England-inspired décor, custom and locally sourced furnishings, a gorgeously textured palette and surprising details that comfort at every turn. Though based in Southport, Lynch remains greatly influenced by an illuminating 18-year residence in Milan and London. She set out with a singular vision for a functional space that would have guests feel at home with just a step inside the door.Lynch further tapped into area boutiques, such as Tiger Lily’s in Greenwich, as well as antique dealers and estate sales for unique furnishings, many of which she had restored or recast. She thoughtfully selected pieces from Mallory’s personal collection of original art for just the right works to suit the elegant space, from a classic English landscape over the fireplace in the living room, to contemporary works in the front hall, and an original 1950s Paul Newman movie poster in the office library.Delamar Southport welcomes guests to indulge in the new Woodward-Newman Suite to celebrate any occasion with the Private Pied-à-Terre package, which includes: two nights’ accommodation, use of a new 2012 Mercedes-Benz for the weekend courtesy of Mercedes-Benz of Fairfield, signature cocktails and charcuterie plate for two served in the suite, private concierge service and complimentary breakfast for two each morning. The Private Pied-à-Terre package starts at $2,500 a night.The Woodward-Newman Presidential Suite is available for $2,200 a night. Rates at Delamar Southport start from $259.

From September 25th 2008 to January 10th 2009 The

first_imgFrom September 25th 2008 to January 10th 2009 The Kremlin Museum in Moscow will open its doors to the jeweller Gianmaria Buccellati, hosting a retrospective exhibition of the Master Jeweller and Master Goldsmith’s work in the famed Assumption Belfry.The location of the exhibition is particularly special for two reasons: The Assumption Belfry was built between 1523 and 1543 by an Italian architect and it borders with the renowned belfry of Ivan the Great, said to mark the precise geographic center of Moscow. The work of Gianmaria Buccellati will be exhibited in an architectural structure of Italianate design and will be in the exact center of this enchanting capital, allowing visitors to discover the history of the famous dynasty of goldsmiths at first hand.The inherent uniqueness of each of the one hundred and forty seven items selected for display is the fil rouge that links this marvellous collection of objects and jewellery. Each piece has been chosen to best illustrate the history and the evolution of the ‘maison’. In addition to pieces from Gianmaria’s personal collection of jewellery and museum pieces, there will be a selection of items from the family archives created by Mario Buccellati, the founder of this celebrated jewellery house.The Assumption Belfry room makes a fitting setting for the spectacular jewels and artifacts created by Mario and Gianmaria Buccellati: hand-crafted honeycomb creations, precious stones in a palate of colors, royal necklaces and lavish, decorative cups.Attention will focus on the technical skills of the Buccellati artisans coupled with the artistry of the designers, which together reflect the traditions of heritage, integrity and first class craftsmanship that are synonymous with this Milanese house.Exhibiting in a museum of such prominence only serves to confirm Buccellati’s position as, not only one of the world’s finest jewellery houses, but also as a recognized producer of the most exquisite silverware and “objet d’art”.Gianmaria Buccellati has already collaborated with some of the worlds most reputable museums: in 2000 with a retrospective on Buccellati at The Smithsonian Museum in Washington, in 2006 he cooperated with the Poldi Pezzoli Museum in Milan to revitalize the Room of the Golds. Mr. Buccellati developed an exhibit which demonstrated to visitors each stage required to create a lace workmanship ring. This installation communicated the great passion for detail and accuracy of craft needed for each unique jewel to be realized. In 2007, when The Room of Goldsmiths of the 19th Century was opened in The Palazzo Pitti Museum, Gianmaria Buccellati gifted two diamond lace-workmanship brooches, including one from his father’s designs,to the permanent collection. The exhibition at the Kremlin Museum marks a new and important step for Buccellati and highlights the high artistic value of every single creation signed Gianmaria Buccellati. More than two hundred years of the Buccellati family’s artistic creativity will be on display at this extraordinary exhibition, an affirmation of the timeless style, enduring artistry and unique talent that is the essence of Buccellati.last_img read more
