    first_imgPorts North’s Port Master Planning Project has taken an important step forward with the appointment of GHD Advisory to undertake a detailed technical plan that will map out options for developing the Ports of Cairns and the Port of Mourilyan over a 30-year timeframe.Commenting the latest news, Transport and Main Roads Minister, Mark Bailey, said that the master planning process was fundamental to ensuring Queensland’s ports had a long-term vision for growth and expansion while protecting the environment.“This process will present a pathway for the ports to grow in a way that respects their place alongside the reef and the environmental values shared by the communities in which they are located,” Mr Bailey said.“Queensland’s publicly-owned ports are a critical part of the state’s supply chain and must be supported with a plan that will allow them to grow and increase trade capacity in step with our growing economy.”Development of the plans will be tailored to each port but will include a range of considerations such as:trade demand, forecasting and feasibility analysis – including reef fleet, marinas, cruise, project cargo, bulk cargo, bulk storage, marine maintenance, navy, fishing, break bulk, containers;cargo diversity and emerging opportunities;infrastructure condition, capacity and utilization;maintenance and capital dredging requirements;future land utilization and allocations.Drafts of the master plans for Cairns and Mourilyan are expected in 2020.last_img read more

  • Tennis News US Open 2019: Master Of Clay Rafael Nadal Finds Unlikely Second Home At Flushing Meadows

    first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Tennis News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New York: Unlike at his beloved Roland Garros, success did not arrive overnight for Rafael Nadal on the unforgiving hard courts of the US Open, where he surged to within a title of Roger Federer’s all-time men’s Grand Slam singles record on Sunday. Nadal’s epic victory over Daniil Medvedev secured the Spaniard his fourth US Open crown, leaving him one shy of the Open era record of five titles belonging to long-time rival Federer, Pete Sampras and Jimmy Connors.But it was not an instant connection between Nadal, his notoriously suspect knees, and the year’s final Grand Slam tournament.”I think at the beginning of my career have been some tough moments here, losing matches,” said Nadal, who failed to reach a single semi-final in his first five trips to the US Open.During that span, Nadal would claim at least one singles title at the other three majors, but it was not until his eighth visit to Flushing Meadows that he would get his hands on an elusive US Open trophy.”Since a long time ago, every time that I came here I felt comfortable. I felt very competitive and fighting for the big things,” Nadal said during his run to a second US Open title in three years.”I feel comfortable here, I like the atmosphere, I like the crowd. I feel a big energy when I am playing in this Arthur Ashe Stadium.”This is cool. Rafael Nadal brought to tears after his US Open title. #VamosRafa pic.twitter.com/gVthBFlfls— Billy Heyen (@Wheyen3) September 9, 2019Nadal’s latest coronation, his 19th Grand Slam title, reinforced the fact the slower courts of the US Open and his obliging knees have turned New York into a land of opportunity.Vanquished opponents this past fortnight struggled to find superlatives befitting the 33-year-old as he capped one of his greatest Grand Slam years in thrilling style.Diego Schwartzman suggested Nadal was “like a lion in the middle of the jungle” while Matteo Berrettini called him “the greatest fighter ever in this sport.” “It’s tough to find words. He’s one of the greatest champions in the history of our sport. He’s just a machine, a beast on the court,” Medvedev said.Injury Misery Victory on Sunday moved Nadal to within one Grand Slam title of Federer, who, at 38, is more than four years older, but the Spaniard downplayed the importance of catching the Swiss legend.”Of course, I would love to be the one who achieves more Grand Slams, but I still sleep very well without being the one who has more Grand Slams,” Nadal said, with typical humility.His Grand Slam CV boasts 12 French Opens, four US Open titles, two at Wimbledon and one at the Australian Open. His 2008 Wimbledon final triumph over Federer is widely regarded as the greatest-ever final at the majors.Along with Federer and Novak Djokovic, the other member of tennis’ “Big Three”, Nadal has comfortably passed the $100 million prize money barrier.Tennis has been good for Nadal but he has been just as influential as a key driver of the sport’s growth.He won an under-12 regional crown at age eight and by 12 had captured Spanish and European age-group junior titles.By 15, he had turned professional and, two years later, won his first match against Federer. At 19, he won the 2005 French Open on his debut.Nadal has Wimbledon crowns in 2008 and 2010, an Australian Open title in 2009 and completed the career Grand Slam in 2010 by defeating Djokovic in the US Open final, becoming the youngest in the Open era to complete the four-event career sweep.Only Nadal and Andre Agassi can say they have a career Grand Slam and an Olympic men’s singles gold medal, Nadal having claimed his in 2008 at Beijing.He has also led Spain to four Davis Cups.Knee and wrist injuries have taken a toll throughout his career, however, costing him nine Slam appearances.After he failed to even reach a Slam semi-final in 2015 and 2016 some figured his greatest moments were behind him.But Nadal roared into the 2017 Australian Open final, losing to Federer, then captured a record 10th French Open crown in June that year, setting the stage for another title run at the US Open.Those struggles receded further into distant memories this year as he reached the semi-finals at all four majors for the first time since 2008, his five-set win over Medvedev moving him a step closer to history. last_img read more

  • Does Apple’s New Lightning Connector Skirt EU Environmental Agreement?

    first_imgApple seems to be following the letter of the law of a 2009 European Union agreement designed to reduce environmental waste by standardizing its iPhone connectors to Micro-USB.  But does the iPhone 5’s new Lightning connector comply with the spirit of the agreement?The 2009 agreement specifically urges signatories to make sure that every mobile phone sold within the European Union be charged with a common charger. The common platform the phones would use would be Micro-USB, specifically Micro-USB configured with the 2009 CENELEC EN 62684 and ETSI EN 301489-34 standards.By 2011, pretty much every major phone maker – including Apple – had signed the agreement, committing the companies to Micro-USB as a power-charging standard. So, with the new iPhone 5, where is Micro-USB?For EU customers, it turns out, it will be in the form of a special Lightning to Micro USB adapter, available for an optional purchase in EU-based Apple stores. This will enable users with Micro-USB chargers to still use them for their new iPhone 5.And, apparently, this is all kosher with the letter of the agreement:“In order that compatibility of as many Mobile Phones as possible with a Common EPS may be enabled, if a manufacturer makes available an Adaptor from the Micro-USB connector of a Common EPS to a specific non-Micro-USB socket in the Mobile Phone, it shall constitute compliance to this article,” the memorandum states.Apple’s new Lightning connector is facing resistance in the United States as well: See iPhone 5’s Lightning Connector Is A Bigger Deal Than Apple Thinks.What Is Apple’s Plan?There may be a couple of problems with this interpretation. First, the cost of the adapter is non-zero, which puts an interesting pressure on iPhone 5 customers: just use the included Lightning power/connection cord or pay extra for an adapter to keep a hold of the Micro-USB cord they already have?It’s a non-trivial cost, too: in the UK, the adapter runs £15, and in Germany the cost is 19€, which is around US $24-25, depending on the exchange rates. That’s a lot of money to plunk down just to keep from switching cords, especially when the Lightning cord is already in hand.Apple’s pricing seems geared to drive people to make the switch over to Lightning and leave all those other connections behind. Apple’s charging about twice as much for the Lightning to Micro-USB adapters as the older 30-pin to Micro-USB adapters, which run £8 and 8€ in the UK and Germany, respectively. And here in the US? Not available in the US Apple store as of this writing, so you’d have to order one and have it shipped.The second issue with the adapters is that they will actually create more waste than simply shifting over to Micro-USB standard, since now there are adapters being built that otherwise would not have had to be used. Sure, you can use your old USB charger, but what happens to the Lightning cord that came in the iPhone 5 box? And that’s just in the EU: in the US,  a lot of old 30-pin cords are going to get tossed out. Ideally, they’ll be caught in Apple’s or a community recycling program, but not always.So why not just make the switch to Micro-USB? Besides the business rationale of being able to manage which peripherals will get connected to the iPhone (and presumably future) iOS devices, Apple has it’s technical reasons as well.Why Apple Doesn’t Love Micro-USB“The micro USB pins are very small, and the power-carrying connectors, pins 1 and 5, are rated to carry 1.8 amps at 5 volts DC. That means that the maximum charging power that can safely flow across the connector is 9 watts. But the iPad wants 10 watts to charge. It will charge on as little as 5 watts, the output of most USB 3 ports and the specially modified USB 2 ports on newer Apple products, but needs 10 watts for fastest charging,” according to industry observer Steve Wildman.With this approach, Apple still remains in compliance with its agreement in the EU. But given the net positive waste this solution will create and the recent hijinks Apple performed with the EPEAT compliance list for its MacBook products, Apple’s commitment to environmental issues appears to be getting weaker with each new product release. brian proffitt What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Related Posts The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologycenter_img Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#Apple#iPhone#mobile Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaceslast_img read more

  • Premier exonerated from rumors about citizenship TCIbirther investigation proves Robinson is legitimate

    first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, December 22, 2017 – Providenciales – The Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands is Bahamian born, but she is no longer a Bahamian citizen and can legally and is rightfully holding elected office in the Turks and Caicos Islands; this is the conclusion of an Integrity Commission investigation into the eligibility of Sharlene Robinson to be the premier following a complaint filed just last month.The complaint comes after Robinson has served a full term as the first all island member and Leader of the Opposition from 2012 to 2016 and after she was elected in 2016, once again as the first all island member and the leader of the People’s Democratic Movement party .   The investigation is one of many peculiar attacks on the country leader amidst ongoing social media and social circle rows which have unraveled and erupted in plain sight over the year; with brutal, vicious and downright disrespectful comments being made by some people on both sides of the divide.The Integrity Commission’s Deputy Director, Richard Been said the IC is compelled by law to investigate all complaints.   His media release today said in part, “the Commission investigated these allegations and can confirm that they are false.   Prior to the 2012 General Elections and in compliance with the law as it was then interpreted, the Premier did renounce her Bahamian citizenship along with some other members of the House of Assembly affected.   She is also in possession of current and previous TCI Passports, some dating back to more than ten years ago.   She was thus eligible and was duly elected into the TCI House of Assembly in 2012.   Since then, and notwithstanding the current position of the law, she had neither applied for nor possessed any Bahamian Passport.   Thus, she remained eligible for and was duly elected into the House Assembly at the 2016 General Elections, contrary to the complaint.   Most, if not all, of these facts are easily verifiable from the public and official records of the relevant authorities in TCI and the Bahamas.”In putting the rumor to bed, the Integrity Commission also asks countrymen to be more responsible in using social media.“The Commission is once again emphasizing that persons who use the liberty of social media as a cloak to make or give false and malicious information or complaints against other persons, agencies or institutions, especially where the truth of such information or complaint can easily be confirmed, must be prepared to face the severe consequences under the law for doing so.”The warning is a firm reminder that some individuals may be opening themselves up to liable or defamation law suits for false or erroneous character attacks.#MagneticMediaNews#Premierexoneratedfromcitizenshiprumors#IntegrityCommissionclearsPremier Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#IntegrityCommissionclearsPremier, #magneticmedianews, #Premierexoneratedfromcitizenshiprumorslast_img read more
