San Diego City Council to consider regulations for dockless scooters and bicycles

first_img April 23, 2019 Updated: 4:41 PM San Diego City Council to consider regulations for dockless scooters and bicycles Posted: April 23, 2019 KUSI Newsroom, center_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego City Council will vote Tuesday on a regulatory package for dockless electric scooters, bicycles and the companies that own them.The package would limit the speed of dockless scooters from 15 mph to 8 mph in high-traffic areas areas like Spanish landing and near Petco park, and as low as 3 mph along the Embarcadero and the Martin Luther King Jr. Promenade.Scooter companies like Bird, Lime and Razor would be required to use geofencing technology on their scooters to limit speeds and parking abilities in designated areas around the city. Bird already uses geofencing to reduce scooter speeds in areas like the Santa Monica Beach Bike Path.Scooter riders would be banned from parking the devices near hospitals, schools, beach area boardwalks, the Petco Park perimeter and the north and south legs of the Embarcadero. The city also plans to designate scooter parking zones along city streets so as to decrease the number of scooters parked on sidewalks. In downtown, scooter riders and companies would only be able to park devices in groups of four, with at least 40 feet between groups.The city would also require that scooter companies obtain a six-month operational permit with a to-be-determined fee and pay $150 per scooter or bike each year to continue operating in San Diego. Companies could renew permits in January or June, at which time they could negotiate operating terms like fleet size, which they are not currently required to report to the city.The council’s Active Transportation and Infrastructure Committee unanimously approved the package in February and requested that it return to the committee within six months of its implementation for further review and to ensure the city is keeping pace with the evolution of technologies like geofencing.The council is scheduled to discuss and vote on the package at its 2 p.m. session. The council will meet in the City Administration Building’s 12th floor Council Chambers, located at 202 C St. KUSI Newsroom Categories: Local San Diego News, Politics FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

IndiaMyanmar struck insurgent bases along eastern border while IAF demolished terror camps

first_imgSoldiers of the Indian Army [Representational Image]Wikimedia CommonsIn a joint operation code named “Operation Sunrise,” the Indian and the Myanmar Army are said to have struck about a dozen insurgent operating bases and camps along the eastern border of the country. Officials reportedly said that the move was made to help curb any threat to the Kaladan transit and transport project in the region that has been taken up to increase connectivity in the Northeast.Operation Sunrise was carried out from February 17 and March 2 and saw the deployment of more than 12,000 Indian troops for the purpose. However, senior officials of the army specified that the forces did not cross the border and that the strike was carried out in coordination with the Myanmar Army.”We operated in coordination with the Myanmar army and our main aim was to prevent these elements from moving into India,” Hindustan Times quoted an official as saying on condition of anonymity. Meanwhile, another official added that the rebels have been creating more issues for Myanmar than India and hence the neighbour was willing to carry out the joint operation.”We don’t need to cross the Myanmar border because there is a mutual understanding on both sides and the Myanmar army largely obliges with whatever we ask them for,” the official explained.”The Myanmar rebels have been creating more problems on their side than ours. At their request, we had killed 5 of their rebels and captured 8-10 on our side in 2017. Thus, the Myanmar army, too, struck the separatist National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Khalang) HQ in Taga on our behalf.”While one soldier of the Myanmar army was reportedly injured, the Indian Army has debunked reports that two Indian jawans had lost their lives. The armies of the two nations also have decided to work together and India is said to have shared radio sets with the Myanmar Army for “ease of communication and to prevent incidents of friendly fire.”Kaladan Multi-Modal Transit Transport ProjectRelations between India and Myanmar remained strained until 1993 due to issues of drug trafficking, but the two nations have maintained healthy relations since. The Kaladan Multi-Modal Transit Transport Project has been undertaken to connect the seaport of Kolkata with Sittwe seaport in Myanmar by sea. It will also link Sittwe seaport to Lashio in Myanmar via Kaladan river boat route and from Lashio on to Mizoram in India by road.The project was scheduled to be completed by 2014, but has been marred by several delays.Meanwhile, Operation Sunrise was carried out when all eyes were on the Balakot strike carried out by the Indian Air Force on February 26. The strike is said to have lasted for about 20 minutes, during which the IAF had demolished several terror camps, killing scores of terrorists.However, Pakistan had said that the IAF violated its airspace early on Tuesday, February 26, morning but returned after facing a “timely and effective response from Pakistan Air Force.” Pakistani Major General Asif Ghafoor announced the “violation” on Twitter and said that the IAF could cause no damage to the nation.Indian Air Force violated Line of Control. Pakistan Air Force immediately scrambled. Indian aircrafts gone back,” Major General Ghafoor’s Tweet read. “Details to follow,” he added. Speaking of the bomb that the IAF had released in Balakot, Ghafoor said: “Indian aircrafts intruded from Muzafarabad sector. Facing timely and effective response from Pakistan Air Force released payload in haste while escaping which fell near Balakot. No casualties or damage.”Indian sources later told ANI that Pakistan did scramble a few of its F-16 jets, but they eventually returned after seeing the size of the IAF’s formation.last_img read more

Las Vegas gunmans girlfriend located in Philippines

first_imgImage released by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department of Marilou Danley in connection to a shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas. Photo: ReutersThe investigation into the motives of a Las Vegas retiree who killed 58 people in the worst mass shooting in modern US history turned on Tuesday to the gunman’s girlfriend in the Philippines, where she turned up after the massacre, authorities said.Stephen Paddock, who killed himself moments before police stormed the hotel suite he had transformed into a sniper’s nest on Sunday night, left no clear clues as to why he staged his attack on an outdoor concert below the high-rise building.But law enforcement authorities were hoping to obtain some answers from a woman identified as Paddock’s live-in companion, Marilou Danley, who Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said was a “person of interest” in the investigation.Lombardo, who said on Monday Danley was believed to be in Tokyo, told reporters on Tuesday she had been located in the Philippines and the Federal Bureau of Investigation was in the process of trying to bring her back to the United States.“We are in conversations with her,” he told an afternoon news briefing. He reiterated police had no other suspects in the shooting itself.Danley, an Australian citizen reported to have been born in the Philippines, had been sharing Paddock’s condo at a retirement community in Mesquite, Nevada, about 90 miles (145 km) northeast of Las Vegas, according to police and public records.Investigators were examining a $100,000 wire transfer Paddock, 64, sent to an account in the Philippines that “appears to have been intended” for Danley, a senior US homeland security official told Reuters on Tuesday.The official, who has been briefed regularly on the probe but spoke on condition of anonymity, said the working assumption of investigators was that the money was intended as a form of life insurance payment for Danley.The official said US authorities were eager to question Danley, who described herself on social media websites as a “casino professional,” mother and grandmother, about whether Paddock encouraged her to leave the United States before he went on his rampage.The official said investigators had also uncovered evidence that Paddock may have rehearsed his plans at other venues before ultimately carrying out his attack on the Route 91 Harvest country music festival from the 32nd floor suite of the Mandalay Bay hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.ARSENAL RECOVEREDFresh details about the massacre and the arsenal Paddock amassed emerged on Tuesday.Police said Paddock strafed the concert crowd with bullets for nine to 11 minutes before taking his own life, and had set up cameras inside and outside his hotel suite so he could see police as they closed in on his location.A total of 47 firearms were recovered from three locations searched by investigators – Paddock’s hotel suite, his home in Mesquite, and another property associated with him in Reno, Nevada, according to Jill Snyder, special agent for the US Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF).Snyder said 12 of the guns found in the hotel room were fitted with so-called bump-stock devices that allow the guns to be fired virtually as automatic weapons. The devices are legal under US law, even though fully automatic weapons are for the most part banned.The rifles, shotguns and pistols were purchased in four states – Nevada, Utah, California and Texas – Snyder told reporters at an evening news conference.A search of Paddock’s car turned up a supply of ammonium nitrate, a fertilizer that can be formed into explosives and was used in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing of a federal office building that killed 168 people, Lombardo said earlier.Police also confirmed that photos widely published online showing the gunman’s body, his hands in gloves, lying on the floor beside two firearms and spent shell casings, were authentic crime-scene images obtained by media outlets. An internal investigation was under way to determine how they were leaked.Video footage of the shooting spree on Sunday night caught by those on the ground showed throngs of people screaming in horror, some crouching in the open for cover, hemmed in by fellow concert-goers, and others running for cover as extended bursts of gunfire rained onto the crowd of some 20,000.Police had put the death toll at 59 earlier on Tuesday, not including the gunman. However, the coroner’s office revised the confirmed tally to 58 dead, plus Paddock, on Tuesday night.More than 500 people were injured, some trampled in the pandemonium. At least 20 of the survivors admitted to one of several hospitals in the area, University Medical Center, remained in critical condition on Tuesday, doctors said.The union representing firefighters disclosed that a dozen off-duty firefighters who were attending the music festival were shot while trying to render aid to other spectators, two of them while performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on victims.“This is a true feat of heroism on their part,” said Ray Rahne of the International Association of Fire Fighters.WHAT DROVE GUNMAN?But the central, unanswered question to the bloodshed was what drove the gunman’s actions.Federal, state and local investigators have found no evidence that Paddock had even incidental contacts with foreign or domestic extremist groups, and reviews of his history showed no underlying pattern of criminal behavior or hate speech, the homeland security official said.While investigators had not ruled out the possibility of mental illness or some form of brain injury, “there’s no evidence of that, either,” the official said.Paddock’s brother, Eric, has said he was mystified by the attack.“It just makes less sense the more we use any kind of reason to figure it out,” Eric Paddock said in a text message on Tuesday. “I will bet any amount of money that they will not find any link to anything … he did this completely by himself.”He said the family did not plan to hold a funeral for his brother, who was not religious, saying it could attract unwanted attention. He described his brother as a financially well-off enthusiast of video poker and cruises, with no history of mental health issues.President Donald Trump told reporters on Tuesday that Paddock had been “a sick man, a demented man.”GUN DEBATE STIRREDThe attack stirred the fractious debate about gun ownership in the United States, which is protected by the Second Amendment of the Constitution, and about how much that right should be subject to controls.Sunday’s shooting followed the massacre of 26 young children and educators in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012, and the slaying of 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando last year.The latter attack was previously the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.Democrats reiterated what is generally the party’s stance, that legislative action is needed to reduce mass shootings. Republicans, who control the White House and both chambers of Congress, argue restrictions on lawful gun ownership cannot deter criminal behavior.“We’ll be talking about gun laws as time goes by,” said Trump, who strongly supported gun rights during his presidential campaign.Paddock seemed unlike the troubled, angry young men who experts said have come to embody the mass-shooter profile in the United States.Public records on Paddock point to an itinerant existence across the US West and Southeast, including stints as an apartment manager and aerospace industry worker. He appeared to be settling in to a quiet life when he bought a home in a Nevada retirement community a few years ago.last_img read more

BioWare artist reveals Mass Effect couldve been much much better

first_imgIn the first Mass Effect game, Shepard chases the antagonist Saren around the universe, much in the way Cloud once chased Sephiroth through almost every single in-game location. Saren was corrupted by the Reapers — the overall series’ main antagonist — and Shepard eventually put an end to him and saved the universe for a short while.The series featured an alignment system, but people who paid attention realized that the games very clearly pushed you toward being a hero rather than a villain. In the various endings for the series, Shepard saved the universe regardless of how evil you tried to be. Canonically, Shepard is a good guy or gal.However, BioWare designer Matt Rhodes revealed that a very early idea for the Shepard character was to eventually turn to Reaper technology to achieve the game’s goals, but it would slowly corrupt the character like it corrupted Saren. Eventually, Shepard would be confronted by another important in-game character, such as Kaidan or Ashley.Whether you fall into the camp that thinks Mass Effect is god’s gift to gaming, or you fall into the camp that thinks it was fine but overrated, you can agree with the other side that this idea for the path the game could have taken was great, and we’re all worse off for it having been scrapped. Canonically, Shepard was a stock, run-of-the-mill hero, and this could’ve made the character much more complex.Rhodes also disclosed that the team debated whether or not to reveal Tali’s face for a long time. As we all know, her face ended up being revealed if Shepard romanced her, which drew ire from ME fans because it was modeled after a stock photo model rather than being an original creation. While revealing her face was a nice addition for players that were invested enough in Tali to romance her, perhaps BioWare should’ve debated a bit longer in order to avoid modeling her after a stock photo.After devoting however many hours to the Mass Effect trilogy, it’s a bit annoying to see that the character we spent so much time with could’ve been much more interesting. If we still can’t agree on that, though, I think we can all agree that ReapShep is a better nickname than BroShep and FemShep.Rhodes posted a bunch of early concept art on his blog, which is well worth checking out if you’re a fan of the series.last_img read more

Dr Dabbers Boost Is a Fine Vape and Thats About It

first_img The Boost is a totally different class of vape. It’s portable, yeah, but only technically. It stands more than 10 inches and has an awkward, imposing presence. Plus, it comes in a padded metal case that reminds me of something you’d use for a weapon.All this is because the Boost is a high-powered concentrate rig. Like the Aurora, you won’t be able to use any herbs with this machine. And given the high temps needed to properly vaporize concentrate, this beast is built to deliver a ton of power, really quickly. That, of course, gives a harsh flavor, so the Boost also includes a percolator. This pulls the vapor through water, cooling the vapor and filtering out some of the unwanted particulates.Build quality is solid, with a sturdy base packed with magnets and rubber O-rings that hold the rig together. It comes apart easily enough and can be stashed back into the case, but you probably won’t want to run the thing around too much as even disassembled, it’s still on the bulkier side.Once you get past that, though, the Boost is a capable machine. It seems intimidating, and you may have to go over the instructions a few times, but all-told, it is, if anything, a bit too simple. You won’t get variable temperature settings as it runs continuously for 60-ish seconds before shutting off. During that time, the Boost will get hotter and hotter — so take that into account. There’s also not really any other features or drawbacks. What you see is what you get.Vapor quality is consistent and potent. Be careful, even with the water filtration; it’s easy to overdo the Boost. You’ll also get quite a few sessions — up to 30 — on one charge. Beyond that, there’s not much to talk about. The biggest advantage here is the price and solid functionality. A comparable home set-up can often run far, far higher than the Boost’s comparatively easy-to-swallow $150 price tag. Plus, most oil or concentrate-based rigs come with what I’m going to call a “sketch” factor.There’s not much appeal to heating up a nail with a blowtorch and then inhaling whatever comes out. The boost is clean-cut by comparison. It’s still not what I’d call a glamorous experience (it’s no Hydrology 9), but it’s worth a look if you prefer oils to herbs.ProsPowerhouseEasy to useGreat price pointConsA bit intimidatingOnly uses concentrateNo extra bells and whistlesBottom LineThe Boost is an imposing, albeit simple rig for vaping oils and concentrates. It gets the job done, but if you’re looking for anything fancy, you might want to shop around.

Sobhandeb spends night in Rashbehari slum as part of Janasanyog Yatra

first_imgKolkata: State Power minister and MLA from Rashbehari Sobhandeb Chattopadhyay spent the night at a slum on Kabir Road on Friday. This is a part of the Janasanyog Yatra, a venture of the state government to build and develop contact with the masses.Following Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee’s instructions, all the legislators have taken part in the mass contact drive. Firhad Hakim, the state Urban Development and Municipal Affairs minister, who is an MLA from the Kolkata Port area, had spent the night in the house of a party supporter last week. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataBanerjee has asked the leaders of the party to build intimate contact with the people and listen to their grievances. “Go to the tea stalls and talk to the local people and try to find out from them what they want from us. People feel happy if we listen to their grievances,” she had directed. Chattopadhyay, who is a very popular figure in the areas under Rashbehari constituency, went to the venue at 8, Kabir Road and talked to the local people and party supporters. He is associated with Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in statethe local clubs and takes part in all the movements that take place in the area like Safe Drive Save Life or Save Green Stay Clean.

Apples Health Tech Takes Early Lead Among Top Hospitals

first_img Apple Inc’s healthcare technology is spreading quickly among major U.S. hospitals, showing early promise as a way for doctors to monitor patients remotely and lower costs.Fourteen of 23 top hospitals contacted by Reuters said they have rolled out a pilot program of Apple’s HealthKit service – which acts as a repository for patient-generated health information like blood pressure, weight or heart rate – or are in talks to do so.The pilots aim to help physicians monitor patients with such chronic conditions as diabetes and hypertension. Apple rivals Google Inc and Samsung Electronics, which have released similar services, are only just starting to reach out to hospitals and other medical partners.Such systems hold the promise of allowing doctors to watch for early signs of trouble and intervene before a medical problem becomes acute. That could help hospitals avoid repeat admissions, for which they are penalized under new U.S. government guidelines, all at a relatively low cost.The U.S. healthcare market is $3 trillion, and researcher IDC Health Insights predicts that 70 percent of healthcare organizations worldwide will invest by 2018 in technology including apps, wearables, remote monitoring and virtual care.Those trying out Apple’s service included at least eight of the 17 hospitals on one list ranking the best hospitals, the U.S. News & World Report’s Honor Roll. Google and Samsung had started discussions with just a few of these hospitals.Apple’s HealthKit works by gathering data from sources such as glucose measurement tools, food and exercise-tracking apps and Wi-fi connected scales. The company’s Apple Watch, due for release in April, promises to add to the range of possible data, which with patients’ consent can be sent to an electronic medical record for doctors to view.’Timing Right’Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans has been working with Apple and Epic Systems, Ochsner’s medical records vendor, to roll out a pilot program for high-risk patients. The team is already tracking several hundred patients who are struggling to control their blood pressure. The devices measure blood pressure and other statistics and send it to Apple phones and tablets.”If we had more data, like daily weights, we could give the patient a call before they need to be hospitalized,” said Chief Clinical Transformation Officer Dr. Richard Milani.Sumit Rana, chief technology officer at Epic Systems, said the timing was right for mobile health tech to take off.”We didn’t have smartphones ten years ago; or an explosion of new sensors and devices,” Rana said.Apple has said that over 600 developers are integrating HealthKit into their health and fitness apps.Many of the hospitals told Reuters they were eager to try pilots of the Google Fit service, since Google’s Android software powers most smartphones. Google said it has several developer partners on board for Fit, which connects to apps and devices, but did not comment on its outreach to hospitals.Samsung said it is working with Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital to develop mobile health technology. The firm also has a relationship with the University of California’s San Francisco Medical Center.Apple’s move into mobile health tech comes as the Affordable Care Act and other healthcare reform efforts aim to provide incentives for doctors to keep patients healthy. The aim is to move away from the “fee for service” model, which has tended to reward doctors for pricey procedures rather than for outcomes.Still, hospitals must decide whether the difficulty of sorting through a deluge of patient-generated data of varying quality is worth the investment.”This is a whole new data source that we don’t understand the integrity of yet,” said William Hanson, chief medical information officer at the University of Pennsylvania Health System.First StepsApple has recruited informal industry advisors, including Rana and John Halamka, chief information officer of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School, to discuss health data privacy and for introductions to the industry.The company said it had an “incredible team” of experts in health and fitness and was talking to medical institutions, healthcare and industry experts on ways to deliver its services.A few hospitals are also exploring how to manage the data that is flowing in from health and fitness-concerned patients, whom many in Silicon Valley refer to as the “worried well.”Beth Israel’s Halamka said that many of the 250,000 patients in his system had data from sources such as Jawbone’s Up activity tracker and wirelessly connected scales.”Can I interface to every possible device that every patient uses? No. But Apple can,” he said.Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles is developing visual dashboards to present patient-generated data to doctors in an easy-to-digest manner.Experts say that there will eventually be a need for common standards to ensure that data can be gathered from both Apple’s system and its competitors.”How do we get Apple to work with Samsung? I think it will be a problem eventually,” said Brian Carter, a director focused on personal and population health at Cerner, an electronic medical record vendor that is integrated with HealthKit.(Additional reporting by Vincent Lee in Seoul, editing by Peter Henderson and Stuart Grudgings) This story originally appeared on Reuters Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now February 5, 2015 This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. 5 min read Enroll Now for Freelast_img read more

Trans kids guide is inaccurate and deeply damaging say LGBT activists

first_img“True trans inclusion looks at the way gender affects every child and seeks to liberate all of us from harmful gender stereotypes.”LGBT campaigning body, Stonewall, also blasted the report, labelling it a “deeply misleading piece of work”.Hannah Kibirige, the organisation’s Director of Education and Youth, said: “The advice it contains is inaccurate and extremely damaging, and to follow it would risk schools failing in their duty of care to vulnerable young people.(Getty)“The pack not only perpetuates the myth that listening to a young person will somehow make them trans, but also fails to reflect the actual lived experiences of trans young people.More than half of trans pupils (64 per cent) experience bullying, with nearly one in ten (9 per cent) being subjected to death threats at school”.Kibirige called for schools to listen to trans pupils and applauded the “many schools” who are taking steps to include transgender students.Transgender Trend has denied that it or its report is anti-trans, saying it has the welfare of transgender children in mind.“The Transgender Trend schools resource pack provides evidence backed information to support the welfare of all gender nonconforming children, including LGBT children,” said the group’s spokesperson and founder, Stephanie Davies-Arai.(Getty)She added: “Although there have been some negative reactions from transgender activists, the fact that it has been warmly received by teachers, parents and educational professionals shows the demand for this resource, and we will be constantly updating it to maintain best practice.”The group describes itself as “left leaning and liberal” with varying religious views.However, under the ‘Detransition’ section of its site, the organisation links to multiple blogposts by Walt Heyer, a right-wing activist who campaigns against sex change surgeries.Heyer runs a self-named Ministry, in which he offers advice to pastors on how to provide “redemption and restoration” to trans people.Heyer, who describes himself as a ‘recovering transgender’, says he “has been through the church, I have been redeemed and restored through our Lord Jesus Christ”.The document has been downloaded more than once every minute, according to Davies-Arai.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… A recently released guide, targeted at schools about transgender children, has been slammed by LGBT groups, who say it perpetuates myths and could potentially harm young trans people.Transgender Trend, a group which describes itself as parents “concerned about the current trend to diagnose ‘gender non-conforming’ children as transgender”, released the resource pack yesterday.  The report, which says it aims to “protect vulnerable teenagers from political ideology”, tells parents that gender non-conforming children are likely to accept the sex they were assigned at birth, or that they will become gay or lesbians in adulthood.It accuses transgender activists of teaching children an “ideology as fact promoting language and concepts which are anti-science”, arguing that transitioning is glamourized on social media.(Transgender Trend)Included in the report – called ‘Supporting Gender Non-Conforming and Trans-Identified Students in Schools’ – are four testimonies, allegedly from gender non-conforming individuals who no longer identify as transgender.One says that the belief they were trans “was largely due to internalised homophobia and misogyny”, while another says that the transgender movement is “regressive, homophobic and reinforce[s] sex stereotypes”.Another testimony, from a pastoral leader in a comprehensive school, says children are now coming out as trans because it is “fashionable”.The teacher adds: “Children which I suspect might be LGB are most likely to come out as trans … [it] means they are far less likely to be victimised, as being trans carries so much power”.The report continues to say that “the majority of trans girls are lesbians” and that children ought to be encouraged to feel “comfortable in their own (sexed) bodies”.(Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)The publication has been fiercely condemned by the trans youth work organisation, Gendered Intelligence, which accused it of limiting “young people’s access to information and potentially life-saving support.”Gendered Intelligence told PinkNews: “[The report] encourages schools to humour young trans and gender questioning students, rather than affirming and celebrating them.Its censorious approach to young people’s futures is intentionally provocative in how it erases the real, lived experiences of trans youth.”The group also accused Transgender Trends of paranoia and inaccuracy, saying: “Talking about gender diversity and trans lives does not make someone trans, but can only aid an understanding of the broad range of gender expressions and identities that already exist in society.”“Transgender Trend has reduced gender diversity in schools to a zero-sum game, where LGB youth are played off against their trans peers.” eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) British sexist advert overhaul could help LGBTI representationTory MP proposes American-style trans toilet restrictions in UKAustralia hits back at PM’s anti-trans comments with ‘gender whisperer’ productsPINK NEWS-last_img read more

Travel Secrets – Cookham United Kingdom

first_imgSource = Travel Secrets by Andrew J. Wood Travel Secrets – Cookham, United Kingdom By Andrew J. WoodTravel Secrets – Cookham, United KingdomCookham: If you were asked to think of a stereotypical English village and to described the images that the olde-world English countryside conjures up in your mind you would probably be describing Cookham. A quaint village, with a central high street, Union Jacks fluttering, and streams of colourful bunting.Travel Secrets – Cookham, United Kingdom By Andrew J. WoodAdd to the picture hanging baskets of bright floral displays on every lamp post, country cottages with English gardens brightly adorned with flowering jewels and herbaceous perfumery, a meandering river (the Thames) with boats, swans, ducks and willow trees. Also add a village pub (between the High Street and Cookham Rise there are five), a picture postcard church (Holy Trinity), restaurants aplenty (including brilliant gastropubs, and stand-alone Indian, Chinese and Thai restaurants), and finally art galleries and boutique local handicraft shops.Apart from being visually stunning Cookham as a village is also practical. For local residents there are supermarkets; banks; cafés; a post office and garage. Which means local supplies are never too far away. Located just 30 minutes west of Heathrow airport (19mi/30km and 20 minutes (10mi/16km) from historic Windsor and Eton, it’s a gorgeous well kept village with a real sense of community and a friendly disposition towards visitors.Travel Secrets – Cookham, United KingdomBy Andrew J. WoodIt’s a great place too if you’re a dog. Wonderful long walks and acres of open parks, commons and woodlands for dog owners to let their best friends off-the-lease to run and exercise with ease.Driving into Cookham is like arriving at the quintessential English village. It’s close proximity to Royal Windsor Castle; a meandering river Thames and London (M4), makes this village very special.So special that my sister Jill and hubby Graham live here. During my hotel graduate training days I used to commute between Cookham and London when I lodged here, getting up at the crack of dawn to travel by train to Maidenhead and Paddington, to get to my kitchen at the Sheraton Park Tower Hotel in Knightsbridge before 7 a.m. everyday. And on my day-off sitting on a bench on the river Thames pathway, under a willow tree, watching the white swans and sailing boats. Happy memories.A few years back we visited Jill with other friends. Jill having only one spare room we decided, that rather than split up and cause havoc in my sister’s household, all the visitors would stay at the Crown Pub. It’s a lovely place to lodge. The 300 year old Crown is an historic feature in the centre of the village.Originally the Crown Inn, however no-one is exactly sure when it was built, it is estimated that it was in the 1700’s; providing food and shelter to the weary traveller back then.Travel Secrets – Cookham, United KingdomBy Andrew J.

Armina Ligaya The Canadian Press

first_imgArmina Ligaya, The Canadian Press TORONTO — Pineapple Express star Seth Rogen and screenwriter Evan Goldberg have teamed up with Canopy Growth Corp. to launch a Toronto-based Canadian cannabis brand called Houseplant.The Vancouver-born actor and the Canadian screenwriter with whom Rogen collaborated on the stoner film co-founded the Toronto-based company along with “other great friends and colleagues.”“We have been working on this quietly for years and seeing everything come together is a dream come true,” Rogen said in an emailed statement.“We could not be more passionate about this company and are dedicated to doing everything the right way. It is extremely important to us to treat cannabis with the reverence it deserves. What a tiame!”Houseplant said Canopy acquired 25 per cent of the business, and invested working capital, but would not disclose any further financial information.Rogen and Goldberg are the business leads of the company, while Canopy in its role as venture partner is providing the facilities, expertise and infrastructure to grow cannabis.“We have been getting to know the Houseplant team for quite a while now and continue to be impressed by their understanding of the cannabis consumer, attention to detail, and drive towards their vision,” Canopy president and co-chief executive Mark Zekulin said in a statement.Rogen, who has also portrayed pothead characters in films such as Knocked Up and the 40-Year-Old-Virgin, is not the first celebrity associated with cannabis to dabble in the pot industry.Tommy Chong, one half of the Cheech & Chong comedy duo, has a line of medicinal cannabis products called Chong’s Choice, available in certain states where legal. In late 2017, director and actor Kevin Smith and actor Jason Mewes — better known as their stoner movie characters Jay and Silent Bob — entered into a brand licensing agreement with Hamilton, Ont.-based cannabis company Beleave Inc. to develop strains. And in 2016, rapper Snoop Dogg struck a deal with Canopy to grant the licensed producer the exclusive right to use certain content and brands such as Leafs By Snoop.However, since Canada legalized recreational cannabis last October, these companies are subject to strict rules governing promotion of the products. The Cannabis Act prohibits the promotion of cannabis, cannabis accessories or any service related to cannabis by means of a testimonial or endorsement or by means of the depiction of a person, character or animal, whether real or fictional. It is also prohibited to present cannabis or any of its brand elements in a manner that “evokes a positive or negative emotion” about a “way of life such as one that includes glamour, recreation, excitement, vitality, risk or daring.”Any promotion that could be seen as appealing to young people is also forbidden.Houseplant noted that Rogen and Goldberg are not paid spokespeople, but founders and business owners who have been involved in its strategic development and decision making since the beginning. “Since inception the Houseplant team has maintained a strong focus on abiding by the regulations which is why, not due to a lack of opportunity both pre and post legalization, Seth and Evan have not participated in any cannabis related event or promotion in Canada,” the company said in an emailed statement.“They are founders and owners, not spokespeople for the brand and have been very careful not to confuse that.”Houseplant’s team in Toronto consists of a chief commercial officer and marketing manager while its strains will be grown at Canopy’s facilities in Smiths Falls, Ont., she added.The first strain Houseplant Sativa will be on sale at legal retailers in B.C. starting next month, with hybrid and indica strains to follow. The company said pre-rolled joints and softgel products will also follow later in the year as the brand rolls out across Canada. Houseplant said it does not have any current plans to launch in the U.S. — where cannabis is legal for medical and recreational purposes in several states but is illegal federally — but both its partner and the company have “global aspirations.”The company said there are no current plans for any products branded with Pineapple Express.Rogen and Goldberg’s partners in Houseplant also include the California-based United Talent Agency through its business ventures group.The pair have spent five years preparing for the launch, said Goldberg.  “We are so proud to be launching in Canada, our home… We’re excited to be able to share our passion for cannabis with Canadians in this way,” he said in a statement.
