SYRIZA in lead poll states

first_imgDespite a rise of 2.2 percentage points in two months, New Democracy trailed SYRIZA in a March opinion poll published in Eleftherotypia newspaper this week.The survey for May’s European Parliament elections put the leftists in the lead on 21.8 percent, virtually unchanged from February, and New Democracy in second on 19.7 per cent.Golden Dawn was third with 7.6 percent, followed by To Potami (The River) on 6.4, the Communist Party on 5.2, Olive Tree alliance on 4.3, Independent Greeks on 4.2 and Democratic Left on 3.1.The poll, however, also indicated that none of the parties have convinced voters they are able to tackle the country’s problems.Only two in 10 respondents had a positive view of the New Democracy-PASOK coalition, while 68.9 percent of those questioned believe that SYRIZA would not be able to change the terms of Greece’s bailout and implement a different economic policy.Source: Kathimerini / Eleftherotypia Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

The Australian Greek Welfare Society

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram I want to share some thoughts with you about why I agreed to become the patron of the Australian Greek Welfare Society (AGWS). The key words that describe my motivation are respect and gratitude.The word respect is apt because I have always admired people and organisations that are dedicated to helping others in need and who are motivated by a sense of community service rather than a desire to personally profit. This describes the society perfectly. It is a non-profit organisation that depends on volunteers and financial assistance from the community for its effectiveness. The word gratitude is apt because the key beneficiaries of the society’s services include Greek Australians of my parents’ generation who migrated to Australia after the Second World War. Most of them are now in their 70s and 80s and are becoming increasingly frail. Many of them also had limited educational opportunities in Greece and Australia and continue to have English language difficulties. This means that some mainstream health and welfare services are not easily accessible to them. In order for such services to be fully effective, they need to be provided in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner by organisations with which that generation feels comfortable. The AGWS is clearly such an organisation.My generation, which has benefited immensely from the sacrifices of my parents’ generation, needs to do more to acknowledge our gratitude for those sacrifices and to actively promote the welfare of that generation. We need to do this personally, at the family level, as well as collectively, by supporting organisations such as the society.Prior to my appointment as a judge in May 2008, my involvement with the Greek community of Melbourne was mainly confined to Greek community groups representing the area where I grew up in Melbourne and the area from which my family emigrated in Greece. The key bodies with which I was involved were the Greek Orthodox Community of Broadmeadows and Districts and the Philanthropic Association of Imathia Veria. I was not involved with the peak body, the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria, or welfare bodies such as the AGWS and Fronditha Care. The level of my involvement changed after May 2008. As I was then and remain the only Greek-born judge in Victoria, I received invitations from many Greek Australian organisations to participate in their activities. I made a policy decision to accept those invitations where my involvement might add some value to the organisations in question or the people that they assist. I have been particularly keen to be involved with organisations providing services to Greek youth, as my educational and professional experiences may provide some guidance and encouragement. I have also been keen to be involved with organisations that provide services to my parents’ generation for the reasons that I have already mentioned.Until the society invited me to become its patron, I did not have a detailed understanding of its history, services and personnel. So I made discreet enquiries. I was delighted to learn that the AGWS was well known in the Greek Australian community and enjoyed an excellent reputation. Those to whom I spoke were unanimous in praising Voula Messimeri, George Spiliotis and the board and staff of the society. I was told that they were all very professional and well liked. Indeed, a senior Greek lawyer said of George, ‘Eine kalo pedi o Giorgos’. The society was universally seen as providing much needed services and making a tangible difference to the wellbeing of its clients. This positive feedback made it very easy for me to accept the role as the society’s patron. It is a pity that the AGWS did not exist in April 1968, when my family arrived from Greece. My family’s adjustment to life in Melbourne was very difficult because no member of my family spoke English and there were few established Greek families in Broadmeadows to assist us. The assistance we received was well-meaning but ad hoc and incomplete. Those early years would have been less confusing and stressful if the society was in existence because it could have taken us under its wings and helped us like it did many new arrivals following its establishment in 1972.Who would have expected that the services that the society provided to new arrivals in the 1970s would again be in high demand 40 years later? Yet this is precisely what has occurred due to the spike in Greek Australians who have been living in Greece returning to Australia due to Greece’s economic crisis. The society should be congratulated for having the flexibility to respond to the settlement needs of these individuals, which include accommodation, employment, social welfare entitlements and education.When I was initially shown around the society’s headquarters in Brunswick earlier this year, I was very impressed by everything I saw. However, three things stood out. The first was the enthusiasm of the staff and the fact that many of them were bilingual. The second was the cardiac program to assist in meeting the rehabilitation needs of ageing members of our community. The third was the computer literacy classes, in particular those directed at the use of the internet and communication tools such as email and Skype. When I saw the exercise bikes and the computers, it struck me that the two programs were essential to tackle two important challenges of my parents’ generation, namely, the risk of recurrence of adverse health episodes and the risk of isolation, loneliness and being cut off from family and friends both in Australia and in Greece.I hope that some of the society’s clients are inspired to use their newly acquired computer skills to record their life stories. In my opinion, the lives of people of my parents’ generation are truly amazing. I have a real concern that many remarkable life stories will be lost to the community with the passing of that generation. The services that the AGWS provides are not confined to individuals of my parents’ generation. For example, the society conducts a childcare program out of the ALPHA Children’s Centre. It caters to all in the Greek Australian community, including at both ends of the life cycle. Its diverse programs have a common aim: to look after vulnerable members of the Greek Australian community and to promote their interests.On 17 April this year, I attended a breakfast function at the society’s head office, during which a promotional video was shown. The video included footage of young families arriving from Greece after the Second World War and snippets of their life progression, including men and women who arrived in their 20s and 30s and are now over 70. I found the video very moving because it reminded me of my family’s journey as migrants. My father was 34 years of age in 1968 when we arrived in Australia and he is now 80. My mother was 31 years of age and she is now 77. I remember them as tall, strong and fearless when we arrived in Australia. Now they are elderly and do not appear as tall. They suffer from the usual health issues that come with age and seem to become stressed more readily. These attributes are common among individuals of my parents’ generation.When my family arrived in Australia, my brother and I were aged eight and four, respectively. We depended on our parents to provide for us and to protect us. Now, our parents are increasingly depending on us to look after them. As busy professionals, we cannot be at our parents’ side at all times. They need to continue looking after themselves as best they can on a day-to-day basis and to seek support and companionship from their network of friends when we cannot be with them. As the friends in their network are also elderly, there is a real need for organisations such as the society to act as a safety net to ensure that the needs of elderly Greek Australians who are still able to live independently are met. The society’s social support program and community visitors scheme, which provide for visits by volunteers to frail elderly people, make a vital difference to the morale and wellbeing of those individuals. Equally important is the society’s respite program for carers of family members who are elderly or suffer from a disability.Knowing that someone cares and that if you ask for help you will receive it is so important for the peace of mind of the elderly. I will give you a personal example. My parents live in their own home. Although they cannot read English, they cope with routine mail because this normally comprises bills with which they are familiar. However, when they receive mail that is out of the ordinary, my father telephones me wherever I am and the following conversation takes place. ‘Emilie, elava ena grama ke then xero ti lei’. ‘Baba, pou na xero ti lei afou then boro na to do. Tha ertho apopse apo to spiti ke tha sto exigiso.’ When I say this, I can hear my father breathe more easily. All he was after was reassurance that, whatever the nature of the letter, it will be looked after. My parents’ generation have, through their hard work, laid solid foundations for not only their children but also for the Greek community of Australia to flourish and succeed. They will not be with us forever, so we must all do what we can to support and honour them both individually and through organisations such as the society. We cannot forget them or neglect them. We must look after them not only financially but provide companionship and emotional support for them. They were strong and proud when they first arrived in Australia. Although there are limits to what can be done with age-related health issues, there is much that we can do both individually and collectively to ensure that they remain happy and proud rather than feeling lonely and isolated. As an organisation, the society excels at making elderly Greek Australians feel welcome and cared for. The services it provides are truly invaluable. Having the right programs in place is only one of the components that are required for effective service delivery. The other important components are the people who provide the services and the culture within which they are provided. The AGWS is pre-eminent in all of the above. As I have already said, when I first visited the society’s head office, I was struck by the dedication, professionalism and enthusiasm of the staff. These qualities are essential to ensure that elderly Greek Australians who are the recipients of the society’s services feel that they are respected and that they are treated with dignity. Based on my involvement with the society to date, it is clear that respect and dignity are the hallmarks of the society’s service delivery.I respect the work that the AGWS performs for the Greek Australian community and I am grateful for the dedicated way in which the work is performed, particularly for individuals of my parents’ generation. *This is an edited version of a paper presented by Justice Emilios Kyrou at the Annual General Meeting of the Australian Greek Welfare Society.last_img read more

Nucléaire la centrale de Tricastin soffre dix ans supplémentaires

first_imgNucléaire : la centrale de Tricastin s’offre dix ans supplémentairesL’Autorité de sûreté nucléaire (ASN) vient de donner son feu vert pour un prolongement de dix ans de l’exploitation d’un réacteur de la centrale nucléaire du Tricastin, en France. Une centrale qui fonctionne déjà depuis trente ans. L’exploitation d’un réacteur nucléaire n’étant pas soumise en France à une limite dans le temps, tous les dix ans, un examen de la sûreté des installations nucléaires est réalisé. Entre mai et août 2009, le réacteur n°1 du site du Tricastin a ainsi été contrôlé, pour devenir le premier réacteur français à voir son fonctionnement prolongé jusqu’à 40 ans. Une nouvelle annoncée en fin de semaine dernière par l’Autorité de sûreté nucléaire, après avoir étudié le rapport d’EDF justifiant selon elle cette prolongation.En 2011, dix autres réacteurs devraient obtenir de telles autorisations, qui seront délivrées au cas par cas. Mais le prochain site qui se verra offrir dix années de fonctionnement supplémentaires sera celui de la centrale de Fessenheim dans le Haut-Rhin. L’ASN devrait en effet rendre son avis dans les jours à venir. Comme le souligne EDF, une telle prolongation de son parc nucléaire demanderait un investissement de quelque 400 millions d’euros par réacteur. Un investissement qui, au prix actuel du mégawatheure, pourrait engendrer un revenu de deux milliards d’euros.Le 7 décembre 2010 à 16:17 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Ubisoft Confirms New Assassins Creed Far Cry and The Crew For Some

first_img Hands-On: ‘Ghost Recon: Breakpoint’ Has Something for EverybodyMake Your Own ‘Watch Dogs Legion’ Music With Ubisoft and JGL’s New Grift No matter how you pronounce its name, we can all agree that Ubisoft is one of the most prolific AAA video game publishers these days. While rivals like Activision and EA seem to narrow their focus on and a handful of hits, the French video game empire has a relatively wider portfolio. However, that doesn’t mean Ubisoft is above milking the same few cash cows, and thanks to a recent fiscal year earnings report, we now know which virtual teats are about to be squeezed yet again.Ubisoft confirmed that new installments in the Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, The Crew, and South Park franchises will all be released before the end of the next fiscal year. We already knew about South Park: The Fractured But Whole, the delayed South Park RPG sequel. However, the rest of these games are theoretically games that have yet to be revealed.We say theoretically because numerous pre-E3 leaks have already told us much of what to expect from the future of these franchises. After a taking a year off to give the awful Michael Fassbender movie time to shine, this year’s Assassin’s Creed will almost surely be an even more free-form open-world adventure set in Ancient Egypt or something featuring the return of naval combat called Assassin’s Creed: Origins, or Empire.The Far Cry rumors sound slightly more interesting. Previously the series was known for its exotic and dangerous locales like Southeast Asia and tropical islands. Vacations gone wrong. However, Far Cry 5 might hit closer to home. We’ve heard the game has players battling against militia gun nut, Duck Dynasty types in Montana. Given America’s current political climate, that should wake a few folks up. And I guess redneck brutes aren’t too much of a stretch from the literal caveman enemies of 2016’s Far Cry: Primal.Finally, for some reason Ubisoft is making a sequel to The Crew, its already forgotten 2014 open-world racing game that wasn’t Need for Speed or Burnout or Forza Horizon. At least it wasn’t Driveclub. By all means get hyped for this if you can.So look forward to another year of hot Ubisoft releases, competent but mechanical open-worlds that keep blending together as the company desperately attempts to avoid a Vivendi takeover. I just hope the Mario/Rabbids RPG turns out alright. Good luck! Stay on targetlast_img read more

Mabus Suggests Adding Nuclear to the Fuel Mix for Navy Bases

first_imgThe Navy has relied on a combination of alternative energy sources, including solar, wind and geothermal, to achieve last year’s milestone of attaining 50 percent of its shore facilities’ electricity needs from renewable sources.Now the Navy is considering adding small, modular nuclear reactors to the mix of technologies allowing the service’s bases to operate independently of the commercial grid, says Secretary Ray Mabus. He told the Council on Foreign Relations last week that he envisions a system of small, distributed nuclear generators linked through a microgrid, reports Federal News Radio.“With some of the new technology that’s coming along, it’s much safer, it produces far less residue and nuclear waste, and it is an option that I think we should explore,” Mabus said.The private sector has been developing miniature nuclear reactors that are safer than traditional nuclear plants due to automated safety features and underground containment systems, he noted. Modular reactors also are cheaper because they can be built in a factory and quickly assembled onsite.In the near term, though, the Navy will continue to focus on the renewable technologies it already is deploying to power its shore facilities around the globe.And while the Navy is familiar with using nuclear energy to power its ships, much of that experience is not transferable to its shore-based needs.“There are differences because ours are 35-year reactors that don’t need to be refueled, and civilian reactors are refueled about every two years,” Mabus said. “Also, a submarine doesn’t take as much power as a community does. But a lot of the basic technology is transferable.” Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

2020 Toyota Supra gets 31 mpg EPA highway rating

first_img More From Roadshow 2020 Toyota Supra review: A solid sports car that’s rife with controversy Taking a lap around the 2020 Toyota Supra Chevrolet Ford Toyota Tags 75 Photos Comment After waiting for what feels like an eternity, the 2020 Toyota Supra is almost ready to hit the road. We’re still waiting to drive the thing — in something other than prototype guise, anyway — but now, one more piece of the puzzle has been revealed.According to a sharp-eyed Twitter user, the official 2020 Toyota Supra fuel economy numbers have been released, which we verified on the EPA’s website Wednesday. They aren’t too shabby either: 24 mpg in the city, 31 mpg highway and 26 mpg combined. That’s with a 335-horsepower, turbocharged inline-six engine underhood, managed by an eight-speed automatic transmission. 2019 GMC Sierra Denali review: So close to greatness 7:57center_img 2018 Ford EcoSport: Better late than never 1 2020 Toyota Supra: A Japanese sports car legend returns Toyota Now playing: Watch this: Share your voice Sports Cars Those are pretty competitive numbers. At its best, a 2019 Ford Mustang achieves EPA ratings of 21 mpg city, 32 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined — that’s with the 2.3-liter turbocharged inline-four engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission. The most efficient 2019 Chevrolet Corvette carries EPA ratings of 16 mpg city, 25 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined, though of course, it also comes with a 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 under its hood.The BMW Z4, with which the new Supra shares most of its underpinnings, hasn’t been EPA-rated in its six-cylinder M40i guise just yet. The less-powerful (but still lovely), four-cylinder sDrive30i model, however, is estimated to return 25 mpg city, 32 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined.As always, your mileage may vary.last_img read more

Pakistan told to review Jadhavs sentence

first_imgThe Hague : In a major victory for India, the International Court of Justice on Wednesday ruled that Pakistan must review the death sentence for Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, who has been sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court. Jadhav, 49, a retired Indian Navy officer, was sentenced to death by the Pakistani military court on charges of “espionage and terrorism” after a closed trial in April 2017. His sentencing evoked a sharp reaction in India.

Maharshi beats Baahubali 2 record Mahesh Babu film set for record number

first_imgMaharshiTwitterSuperstar Mahesh Babu’s Maharshi has beaten the record of SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 starring Prabhas and Rana Daggubati as it is set to have a record number of premiere shows in the US this Thursday.Great India Film had earlier released Mahesh Babu’s movies like Athadu, Aagadu, Pokiri and Bharat Ane Nenu. The distribution house has joined hands with the superstar for the fifth time. It has acquired the overseas theatrical rights of Maharshi and made grand plans for its release in the international markets.Great India Films has planned to release Maharshi in 260 locations across the US and it is the highest number for a film starring Mahesh Babu. The distributors are holding 2,500 premiere shows to cash in on the Mahesh mania in the county on May 8, a day before it hits the screens in India. They tweeted on May 2 “#MAHARSHI 2500+ SHOWS OVERSEAS ON May 8th.”Baahubali 2: The Conclusion had around 2,000 premiere shows in the US and it is the highest ever for any Indian film. Now, Maharshi has not only shattered this record but also set a new big benchmark for upcoming Indian movies. However, SS Rajamouli’s film had crossed the $3 million mark at the US box office in its premieres. It should be seen whether Mahesh Babu movie will beat this record or not. MaharshiTwitterGreat India Films has opened advance booking for Maharshi on May 3. The distributors tweeted, “#Maharshi USA, A Record 119 Locations in @Cinemark chain alone. Online tickets are open in many locations, to get your ticket visit. Join @Cinemark MovieClub offer and get one movieticket free and $4-$8 off on other movie tickets @urstrulyMahesh.”Mahesh Babu is undoubtedly the most popular Telugu actor in the US and most of his films have become big hits in the country. There is always a huge demand for the overseas theatrical rights of his films. But the makers of Maharshi had a tough time getting a good price for its international distribution rights. The reason is the average business of Mahesh last film Bharat Ane Nenu.Bharat Ane Nenu collected over Rs 30 crore gross at the overseas box office in its lifetime run and it had earned over Rs 16 crore for its distributors, who had to invest Rs 18.20 crore on its international rights. It was rumoured that producer Dil Raju had quoted Rs 18 crore as the price for the overseas theatrical rights of Maharshi, but no distributors apparently showed interest to buy the rights at such high price.Great India Film, which earlier released many big-ticket films including Baahubali, reportedly quoted Rs 12 crore the overseas rights of Maharshi and after the negotiation, Dil Raju sealed the deal with this distributor for Rs 14 crore, which appears to be easy for bet for the movie to recover at the box office.last_img read more

Suu Kyi faces mounting anger over Rohingya

first_imgPeople burn an effigy depicting Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi during a protest rally against what they say are killings of Rohingya people in Myanmar, in Kolkata. ReutersAung San Suu Kyi faced mounting criticism Tuesday over what some world leaders are now calling the “ethnic cleansing” of Myanmar’s Rohingya minority, despite her plea for patience from the international community.The head of Myanmar’s civilian administration pledged to hold rights violators to account over the crisis in Rakhine state, but refused to blame Myanmar’s powerful military for the attacks that have driven 421,000 Muslim Rohingya out of her mainly Buddhist country.But her speech, delivered in English and clearly aimed at deflecting international anger as world leaders gathered at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, failed to quell international anger at reports that the Rohingya are being burned out of their homes.“The military operation must stop, humanitarian access must be guaranteed and the rule of law restored in the face of what we know is ethnic cleansing,” French President Emmanuel Macron told world leaders gathered for the week of high-level diplomacy.The United States has been careful not to blame Myanmar’s civilian leadership for the attacks because the country’s military retains control of security operations in troubled areas like northern Rakhine, but Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was moved to call Suu Kyi.While Tillerson welcomed the pledge to crack down on abuses, he also urged both the government and the military “to address deeply troubling allegations of human rights abuses and violations” during the telephone conversation, his spokeswoman said.Macron and Tillerson’s concerns echoed those of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who issued a blunt demand that Myanmar halt military operations and of Britain, which suspended training courses for the Myanmar military in light of the violence in Rakhine.“The authorities in Myanmar must end the military operations and allow unhindered humanitarian access,” Guterres told the General Assembly.“They must also address the grievances of the Rohingya, whose status has been left unresolved for far too long.”Amnesty International joined the outcry, saying Suu Kyi was “burying her head in the sand” over documented army abuses and claims of rape, murder and the systematic clearing of scores of villages.And in New York, there was pressure from leaders like Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, who compared the crisis to the 1995 Srebrenica massacre in Bosnia and the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.“If this tragedy in Myanmar is not stopped, the history of humanity will face the embarrassment of another dark stain,” Erdogan said, calling for the Rohingya sheltering in Bangladesh to be allowed to return to the homes in which they “have lived for centuries.”In her long-anticipated speech, Suu Kyi-a former political prisoner and Nobel Peace laureate who won international acclaim for her role in campaigning for a return to elected rule in Myanmar-failed to offer any concrete way out of the crisis.Supporters and observers say the 72-year-old lacks the authority to rein in the military, which ran the country for 50 years and only recently ceded limited powers to her civilian government.Myanmar’s army acts without civilian oversight and makes all security decisions, including its notorious scorched earth counterinsurgency operations.Repatriation pledgeCommunal violence has torn through Rakhine state since Rohingya militants staged deadly attacks on police posts on August 25.An army-led fightback has left scores dead and sent hundreds of thousands of Rohingya fleeing into Bangladesh.In her 30-minute speech, Suu Kyi reached out to critics who have condemned her failure to speak up for the stateless Rohingya and promised to repatriate refugees in accordance with a “verification” process agreed with Bangladesh in the early 1990s.“Those who have been verified as refugees from this country will be accepted without any problems,” she added.In less than a month, just under half of Rakhine’s million-strong Rohingya minority has poured into Bangladesh, where they languish in overcrowded refugee camps.It was not immediately clear how many would qualify to return.But their claims to live in Myanmar are at the heart of a toxic debate about the group, who are denied citizenship by the state and considered to be illegal immigrants from Bangladesh.Suu Kyi’s repatriation pledge “is new and significant,” said Richard Horsey, an independent analyst based in Myanmar, explaining it could allow for the return of those who can prove residence in Myanmar-rather than citizenship.But in the monsoon-soaked shanties in Bangladesh, there was anguish among refugees over how they would meet any requirements.“We don’t have any papers,” said 55-year-old Abdur Razzak.“If the government is honestly speaking to resolve our crisis, then we are ready to go back now,” he added. “Nobody wants to live in such squalid conditions as a refugee.”No more violence?Suu Kyi insisted army “clearance operations” finished on September 5.But AFP reporters have seen homes on fire in the days since then, while multiple testimonies from refugees arriving in Bangladesh suggest such operations have continued.Without blaming any group, Suu Kyi promised to punish anyone found guilty of abuses “regardless of their religion, race or political position.”And she insisted Rakhine was not a state in flames, saying: “More than 50 percent of the villages of Muslims are intact.”Around 170 Rohingya villages have been razed, the government admits. Rights groups say satellite evidence shows the damage is more widespread.While stories of weary and hungry Rohingya have dominated global headlines, there is little sympathy for them among Myanmar’s Buddhist majority.Around 30,000 ethnic Rakhine Buddhists as well as Hindus have also been displaced-apparent targets of August 25 attacks by the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army.Loathing for the Rohingya has brought the public, including pro-democracy activists, into an unlikely alignment with an army that once had them under its heel.Suu Kyi’s speech was warmly welcomed in Myanmar, even though no Burmese subtitles were provided.“She told the real situation to the world on behalf of Myanmar people,” Yu Chan Myae told AFP.last_img read more

Inside the Tesla Solar Event Where Nothing Was Real and the Food

first_img Software Engineer Embedded Tesla Model 3 Key Fob In ArmTesla EV Catches Fire After Colliding With Tow Truck in Moscow Stay on target I stood at the entrance of Universal Studios not knowing what to do. I watched a line of cars and trucks come rolling in through the gates, also not quite sure what to do. People in Tesla shirts ran around directing traffic and talking into walkie-talkies. I can’t be sure they knew what was going on either.There were a bunch of us waiting at the bottom of a large hill. We were all there for a Tesla event, where Elon Musk and his partners at Solar City would be announcing some new solar initiatives. Although why the event was held at Universal Studios in Los Angeles instead of at the Tesla offices, we weren’t sure.Many of us had arrived by Lyft or Uber but were stopped just beyond the gate. They weren’t letting people up yet, the Tesla shirts said, despite the fact emails said to get there at 4 p.m. They wouldn’t let us up until 4:30 and even then, we weren’t allowed to just walk up. For one, it was up a steep hill. Many areas in Universal Studios–such as the theme park and some of the stages–are on the ground level. However, where we were going, we were practically going mountain climbing.AdChoices广告Eventually one of the Tesla shirts motioned for me and a man in a suit with no tie standing next to me into a Tesla vehicle. Media needed to get up to the event ASAP; she told the driver. It was shiny and new. It had a huge touchscreen interface on the dashboard where normal dials would be. I tried to maintain my composure. It was my first time in a Tesla vehicle, and it screamed “future” at me. But I was in black jeggings and a faux leather jacket. I felt out of place already. And underdressed.The man, who was now sitting next to me in the car, leaned over to me “how do you think she knew we were media?”I shrugged. “Probably that tired look about us.”The man next to me was a journalism veteran, going on 20 years at the newspaper where he worked. I asked him if this chaos was typical for this kind of event. It wasn’t, he told me.When we finally got to the top of the mountain, we were greeted with another cheery Tesla shirt, who shook our hands and introduced himself. I can’t remember his name. I went through the same routine with nearly ten other Tesla shirts that night.Pictured: An actual climb up a mountainHe showed us the way into the event. It was on one of the studio sets. If you’ve ever been on a movie studio tour, you’ll know that there are fake cities and suburbs scattered around the lot, which can be repurposed indefinitely. We had been driven to a quaint suburbia, or maybe it would’ve been quaint if it weren’t already bustling, packed with people in dress shirts and skin-tight dresses drinking beer, people with their kids eating popcorn or mac and cheese.“Welcome to the block party,” the Tesla shirt said, that smile still plastered on his face.The media wouldn’t be able to engage in the block party, however. We were led into the backyard of one of the homes, which many of us agreed had been used on Desperate Housewives. There were couches set up, along with people in buttoned up shirts serving fancy versions of grilled cheese on plates. Everybody looked tired and luckily, also underdressed. We were all on our computers catching up on work. We weren’t allowed to bring cameras into the event, so we snapped pictures with our phones.Most of us had no idea what was going on. Why was there a block party set up in the middle of the Desperate Housewives set? Would Elon Musk, who was notorious for hitting the stage whenever he wanted, be on time?I sat on one of the couches fiddling with my computer. This was my first one of these events, and I wasn’t sure what I was expecting. It’s Tesla, so I knew it wouldn’t be just a row of free drinks in a large, empty room. I knew there would be a performance. We were on a movie studio set after all, why wouldn’t you use that to throw a Hollywood-style party?When Musk took the stage (actually on time), the media were all in a separate area on a small hill, still not allowed to mingle with the guests, who were packed tight in front of Musk. The guy was casually dressed, wearing a gray shirt and slacks. We all took out our phones to snap pics.Musk isn’t known for being the best public speaker. He’s always been more about ideas and behind-the-scenes work instead of being the company spokesperson or a showman, like Steve Jobs once was. So he spoke modestly, going through the motions and pausing after every sentence awkwardly. Every time he said “um, yeah” after a statement somebody in the audience cheered. “Woo, Musk!” Musk would chuckle a bit to himself and continue.The presentation lasted around 20 minutes. It was there he announced what had already been leaked: Tesla was partnering with SolarCity to design aesthetically-pleasing and efficient solar roofs. There were four homes on the set around us, and each one had been outfitted two weeks prior with the technology. As the sun set, Musk gestured to the home on his right. What better time to show people how the solar initiative would work then at sundown? As it got dark, we saw the homes had each been given a Powerwall, which is a battery that can store energy when the sun isn’t shining. In the driveways of each home was at least one Tesla vehicle.These were the homes of the near future, Musk said. To not have a solar roof in the future would be ridiculous. Why wouldn’t you?After he completed the basic Powerpoint presentation–in which only gave basic details about the roofs–the press were shuffled back to the backyard, where we were treated to a short Q&A with Musk himself, along with Lyndon Rive and Peter Rive of SolarCity and JB Straubel, also a co-founder of Tesla. There was a lot the journalists wanted to ask, but we were told to keep it topical. One journalist asked Musk about an inside business arrangement with SolarCity, and she was blown off. “No comment,” Musk huffed.It was a tightly-enforced press and customer event, especially for media. We weren’t allowed to go anywhere without the permission of a Tesla shirt. We were encouraged to stay on topic when talking to Musk, and even when we didn’t, everybody had been through this enough times to know how to shut those questions down. It was chaotic but organized. I got what I needed for a story and nothing more.When I wanted to leave, I was passed around between four Tesla shirts trying to get me through the crowd and into a car. On the way, I was able to snag some of the free food. It was delicious. But I was being watched the entire time.last_img read more

Scientists create first 2D electride

first_img The researchers, led by Scott C. Warren, an assistant professor of applied physical sciences and chemistry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, have published a paper on the demonstration of the 2D electride in a recent issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.”Layered electrides have very exciting electronic properties—for example, a conductivity much greater than that of graphene,” Warren told Phys.org. “In the crystal structure of a layered electride, a cloud of electrons is spread out into a flat two-angstrom-thick plane between slabs of atoms. The electrons can conduct through that flat cloud with few interactions with nearby atoms, allowing them to move very quickly.”In their study, the researchers showed that the defining features of electrides—in particular, the electron gas and its properties—are preserved when a layered electride called dicalcium nitride (Ca2N) is synthesized in two-dimensional, single-layer form. The work marks the first synthesis of a 2D electride. “We have isolated a few layers of the crystal, perhaps as thin as a nanometer to several nanometers,” Warren said. “Because of its thinness, this material is called a 2D material, like graphene. An electride as a 2D material had been predicted to be stable in vacuum and to retain its exciting electronic qualities by theoretical calculations, but the material is very reactive and it was an open question whether 2D Ca2N could be made in a lab setting. We showed that in the right chemical environment, the material is stable for long periods of time without compromising its exciting electronic properties.”As the researchers explained, separating the multilayered electride into its individual layers was challenging since electrides have strong electrostatic interactions that hold their layers together. Electrides also have a high chemical reactivity that further complicates matters, preventing the use of the “Scotch-tape method” for exfoliation since electrides decompose when coming into contact with certain adhesives.Instead, the researchers used liquid exfoliation, which uses chemical reactions to produce large numbers of nanosheets suspended in solution. After testing 30 solvents, the researchers found one solvent in which the Ca2N nanosheets remain in a stable suspension for at least a month. Tests showed that the 2D electride nanosheets have high electrical conductivity comparable to aluminum metal, high transparency (a 10-nm-thick film transmits 97% of light), and—due to the 2D form—the highest surface area for any electride reported to date. By combining the high surface area of 2D materials with the unusual electrical properties of electrides, the researchers expect that the 2D electride will lead to many more discoveries in the future. Potential applications include transparent conductors, battery electrodes, electron emitters, and catalysts for chemical synthesis.”The potential application that excites us the most is in advanced batteries, which is the focus of our current collaboration with the Honda Research Institute,” Warren said. “There are other exciting potential applications too, for example as transparent conductive films. From an academic perspective, this work opens up synthetic routes to study 2D electrides experimentally and to test potential applications that we haven’t even considered yet.”In the future, the researchers plan to further explore the potential applications of electrides and address the practical challenges in realizing them.”We have a lot to learn about electrides as 2D materials,” Warren said. “For example, how can we coat or functionalize the surface to make electrides stable in air?” (Phys.org)—Researchers have brought electrides into the nanoregime by synthesizing the first 2D electride material. Electrides are ionic compounds, which are made of negative and positive ions. But in electrides, the negative “ions” are simply electrons, with no nucleus. The electrons are very close to each other and very loosely bound, causing them to act as an electron gas. This electron gas gives electrides certain electrical properties, such as a high electrical mobility and rapid electrical transport, that are very attractive for electronics applications. © 2017 Phys.org Scientists have synthesized the first 2D electride, a material with an electron gas containing loosely bound electrons.

QF responds to changing market

first_imgQantas chief executive Alan Joyce said the decision to add up to 25,800 seats across the east coast per week was made out of a commitment to the airline’s customers and would enable the carrier to “respond to opportunities and changing market conditions”.Although making the announcement less than 24 hours after the airline cut back on its Northern Territory services, Mr Joyce said the carrier understood that maintaining customer satisfaction means ensuring a “strong domestic network”.“We know that network and frequency are vital to customer satisfaction,” he said.Yesterday the airline said it would add an extra 25,800 seats per week along the east coast with the addition of 11 flights between Sydney and Melbourne and Sydney and Brisbane from 9 July and 23 August.Its low-cost subsidiary, Jetstar would also play a role in additional flights with 21 return services between Sydney and Melbourne from 16 August this year, seven return services between Sydney and Adelaide from 15 November this year, Sydney and Ballina-Byron as well as Sydney and the Gold Coast both from 18 April 2013 as well as three return Jetstar flights will also be added between Adelaide and Gold Coast from 18 April 2013 as well as four return flights between Newcastle and Gold Coast.“Qantas is increasing capacity and frequency on key business routes to provide greater flexibility for customers who prefer the benefits of travelling with a full service carrier,” Mr Joyce said.   “Jetstar is increasing capacity on key leisure routes, building on its tremendous success of offering low fares into holiday destinations like the Gold Coast. “We know from experience that increasing the number of low fares in these markets will stimulate new travel demand.”Meanwhile earlier this week Qantas announced it had cut NT services, a culling Tourism Minister Malarndirri described as a “disappointment”.Hoping to eradicate tourism loss, the Minister said in a statement that she would lead a delegation to meet with Tourism Australia and receive federal body input into stimulating traffic into Alice Springs. “Tourism nationally is the responsibility of Tourism Australia and we seek their urgent input into working with us on stimulating and marketing our regional tourism economy especially in Alice Springs,” Minister McCarthy said.”Alice Springs has been the subject of extremely negative publicity for some time now and this has placed great stress on its tourism industry and the image of tourism in the region.”Ms McCarthy added that was also attempting to organise an urgent meeting with Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce.
