The story notes that project critics have long cited a poll done last year, suggesting broad public opposition to the two province pipeline as a key factor in the fight to prevent its construction.The new online poll, which surveyed one thousand B.C. residents during the three day period ending December 15th, began by describing the project to build the underground twin pipeline from Brudheim, North of Edmonton, to Kitimat.With 42 percent of those surveyed claiming to be very or somewhat familiar with the proposed project, 52 percent then said they strongly or somewhat support it.- Advertisement -The Sun quotes Enbridge spokesman Paul Stanway as saying the new poll shows British Columbians are a lot more open-minded than some people would suggest and “What this says to us is that there’s an opportunity here to convince and to educate British Columbians.”

Fishman died at 3 a.m., his family at his side, KTLA reported. Doctors found the cancer after Fishman collapsed at his home Wednesday and was hospitalized to treat what was described as a serious infection. “While being treated for the infection, doctors also found colon cancer, which has spread to his liver,” Rich Goldner, the station’s interim news director, said Friday. KTLA first reported Fishman’s illness on its Web site on Thursday. Messages wishing the former political science professor and aviation enthusiast a speedy recovery then began flooding the site, according to the station. Fishman, who would have turned 76 on Aug. 25, had anchored KTLA’s 10 p.m. newscast since 1975. He joined the station a decade earlier, and contributed to the station’s Peabody Award-winning coverage of the Watts riots that year. The station’s newsroom was named in his honor in 2000. Fishman’s honors include the Governors Award from the Los Angeles Chapter of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and a lifetime achievement award from the Associated Press Television-Radio Association.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic celebrates Manchester United’s win over Crystal Palace 1 Jose Mourinho says Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s “phenomenal” impact has made the veteran Manchester United striker undroppable.The outspoken 35-year-old arrived at Old Trafford to much fanfare in the summer given his unerring knack of finding the net and medal-laden CV.Few expected Ibrahimovic to have such an impact at United, though, given his advancing years and their punishing fixture schedule.The striker has featured in 24 of United’s 26 matches this term but shown few ill effects, scoring his 14th goal of the campaign in Wednesday’s 2-1 win at Crystal Palace.Asked if it was almost impossible to leave Ibrahimovic out, Mourinho said: “It is, it is.“But tomorrow is the last effort and then they will have a week without football and that week is a week that my players they need, especially a guy like him, a striker.“Sometimes in other positions you can hide yourself a little bit more, you can protect yourself with experience, with position.“As a striker, I think it’s one of the impossible positions where you can hide.“He is doing phenomenal. Tomorrow he is going to play again, then one week to rest.”The break between the trip to West Brom and Boxing Day clash with Sunderland will be welcome respite for a player Mourinho will handle intelligently during the festive period and beyond.“I am not surprised. I am not surprised at all,” the Portuguese said of Ibrahimovic’s impact.“I knew even by the physical point of view he could resist, but obviously he cannot play 60 matches. I must give him a rest.“I must let him out again. He was suspended against Arsenal so that game he didn’t play.“In some matches in the Europa League he was on the bench. He was on the bench also against Northampton, so now and again I will find a way to give him a rest.“But as our target striker, we can say that he is the only one and the way we normally play we need him.”Ibrahimovic could be joined in the starting line-up at West Brom by Chris Smalling after the England defender recovered from a foot complaint.Out since October 23, his return is a welcome boost to a defence without Eric Bailly due to a knee injury sustained in midweek.“I don’t know how long,” Mourinho said when asked about the severity of the problem. “No surgery.“By the movement on the pitch we thought meniscus but no. It’s a question to see the evolution.“Hopefully we have him for these last two matches at home.”Bailly will join Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Luke Shaw on the sidelines for a match that will see the Baggies attempt to equal their Premier League club record of four consecutive home victories.Early-season pressure on Tony Pulis has become a distant memory, with just one loss in six matches propelling the Baggies up to seventhMourinho has long been an admirer of the West Brom boss, saying 18 months ago that if he owned an English club he would look to make Pulis his manager.“In England? For sure (I’d appoint him),” Mourinho said.“I think (British managers are overlooked) because there are different kinds of profiles.“Real Madrid, Inter, Barcelona, Bayern, Juventus, Dortmund – if you manage these big teams obviously the targets are impossible for people like Tony Pulis, Alan Pardew, Mark Hughes, David Moyes. All of them.“And Tony got trophies everywhere in every club he got trophies.“He was not relegated with Stoke, it’s a trophy. He was not relegated with West Brom, it’s another trophy. Not relegated with Palace it’s another trophy. And so on, and so on.“So he has lots of trophies. By trophies I mean reach the target and he did that. Like some, never relegated is a big trophy.“You are not expecting Sam (Allardyce) to be champion in the clubs that he was managing.“So for me, yes, English managers are not looked (at) as they should.”
“When you don’t win regularly at big clubs you are going to get criticised.“But Brucey and Ole are big enough characters to turn it around, with time and a bit of luck. Every manager needs that.” Ryan Giggs is managing the Welsh national team 3 Getty Images – Getty rookie error “I knew Brucey as a player and he was a leader,” Giggs said.“I’ve also spoken to players who have played for him and they have enjoyed it.

One of my favorite places to visit on Detroit’s Belle Isle is the Scott Fountain on the western side of the island. The marble fountain was in disrepair for years, and subsequently turned off. But since the Michigan Department of Natural Resources has taken over management of Belle Isle this year, the fountain is once again flowing. According to the Belle Isle Convervancy, there are over 100 water outlets in the fountain, in the shape of turtle, lions, and people. It’s a beautiful site and I often see rose petals strewn on the steps from wedding parties having their pictures taken. These photos were taken in the early morning, just after sunrise. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, the fountain puts on a light show at dusk, which I’m hoping to see this week. Have you visited the Scott Fountain? Did you see the light show at dusk?

Tags:#international#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Everyone working on the web around the world would like to connect with people in Asia, but it’s not easy to do. That dynamic and populous region is often focused inward and it’s made inaccessible to outsiders because there is so little information about what goes on there available in the web’s dominant language, English. OpenWeb Asia is a new project that aims to change those trends.Led by top English language Chinese tech blogger (and occasional RWW guest contributor) Gang Lu, OpenWeb Asia is launching with an aggregation page for top English language blogs about Asian tech and plans for an international tech conference. Called OpenWeb Asia 08?, the conference is being organized by people from China, Hong Kong, Korea, the US and Japan.Asian TechI just spent last week visiting startups in Japan (more on that later) and found a strong desire to connect with the outside world. Language was the number one barrier, followed closely by a concern that people in the US and Europe were inaccessible to the smallest startups in Japan. There’s a strong mutual interest in connecting Asian tech and the rest of the world, though. As a writer, for example, I feel like my writing is incomplete if I don’t incorporate some knowledge about how startups in Japan are tackling the problems I’m writing about that US and European companies are engaging with. In one meeting in Tokyo last week, I met government representatives from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry who were working on open standards for geo-location services. How cool is that? I had no idea that work like that, so grounded in the same kinds of open standards conversations we’re having here, was going on there.OpenWeb AsiaEnter OpenWeb Asia, where English-limited readers around the world can learn about what’s going on in Asia. I’ve imported the 15 blog OPML file into my feed reader and encourage you to do the same. (If you’ve never imported an OPML file into Google Reader, for example, save the file linked to on OpenWeb Asia to your desktop, then go to “settings” in G Reader, then to the Import option, then upload the file and you’ll be subscribed to all 15 blogs at once.)One addition that I think would be nice would be filtered feeds for the 15 blogs on the page, using AideRSS, so that casual readers could catch just the most popular stories from the OpenWeb Asia blogs. We can, however, set up a Google Custom Search Engine easily – see below. I’ll be using this whenever I can to check and see who’s doing what in the Asian tech scene.

NASA’s prolific exoplanets-hunting satellite Kepler has found its strongest candidate yet for an Earth-like planet in a life-friendly orbit around a sunlike star. Known as Kepler 452b, the world is estimated to be a bit on the hefty side, at five times the mass of Earth, but it is receiving just 10% more heat and light than we do from its G-type star, just like our sun but 1.5 billion years older. “It would feel a lot like home in terms of the sunshine you would experience,” says Jon Jenkins, who leads Kepler data analysis at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. “This is the closest we have … to another place someone might call home.”The discovery of Kepler 452b was announced today along with the latest edition of Kepler’s catalog of exoplanet candidates, adding 500 new possible planets for a total of 4175. Kepler detects exoplanets by staring continually at 150,000 stars and recording their brightness for long periods. If the brightness of a star dips slightly for a while and then recovers, that could be the sign of an orbiting planet passing in front of it.Other things can also cause brightness fluctuations, so all Kepler candidates must be confirmed either by other sorts of observations or more detailed statistical analysis of the Kepler data. “Confirmation is very time consuming,” says Jeff Coughlin, Kepler research scientist at SETI Institute in Mountain View, California. As a result, the Kepler team has automated the confirmation process for this latest catalog. The results are beginning to show that small rocky planets are the most common of all planet types in the catalog, making up as much as 25%. “The numbers are increasing exponentially,” Coughlin says. Kepler operated from 2009 to 2013 when it was hobbled by the failure of stabilizing reaction wheels. It is continuing to make observations at reduced capacity.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Among the new additions to the catalog are several small, probably rocky planets that reside in the habitable zone—at a distance from their star that allows liquid water to exist on their surface. These newcomers bring the total number of small habitable-zone planets discovered by Kepler to 12. What makes Kepler 452b different is the star it is orbiting. Four of the 12 orbit around M-stars, which are considerably smaller and dimmer than our sun. Seven orbit K-stars, which are a bit more like the sun. But Kepler 452b is the first found around a G-star, the same sort as our sun. “We’ve made amazing progress at finding the right-sized planets, in the right-sized orbits, around the right-sized stars,” Jenkins says.Kepler 452b is 1400 light-years from Earth, orbits its star every 385 days, and is 1.6 times the diameter of Earth. Transit measurements don’t give any information about mass, but, judging from similar exoplanets for which masses are known, the Kepler team estimates it is five times as heavy as Earth, so any visitor would feel twice the gravity we are used to at home. The team consulted planetary geologists about what conditions there may be like, and they predicted that it would likely have experienced active volcanos for some time. Its higher mass may give it a thicker atmosphere and more cloud cover than Earth has. The greater age of the star means it will be heating up, so Kepler 452b may be experiencing a runaway greenhouse effect similar to the one that is currently toasting Venus. However, because of its size and distance, it is unlikely that we will find out more about Kepler 452b for a considerable time, if ever.This is “a fascinating new step forward,” says Didier Queloz of the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, who, along with Michel Mayor, made the first observations of an exoplanet around a normal star. And it comes in the year of the 20th anniversary of that first discovery. “This is a great time we are living in. We now know that there are planets around almost all stars,” he says. “If we keep working as well [as we are now], we can be sure the issue of finding life on another planet will be solved.”
MAKE TIME TO SWEAT IT OUT: For the women of today, youthful skin is not only about the ‘glow’ but also about firm, supple skin and a perfect sculpted face. With hundreds of celebrities sporting the contoured look, it’s no wonder that the modern women want to achieve the look.Traditionally the face is imagined as a triangle, often referred to as the ‘ageing triangle’. A youthful face has the base of the triangle on the cheeks and the apex is on the chin. As we age, due to effects of gravity and the subtle changes in the teeth and bone structure of the jaws, the facial muscles and skin sag–and the triangle reverses. The base is now the chin and the apex moves to the nose. To keep looking young, the ‘youthful triangle’ should be maintained.So how do you do that? Certain smart moves, daily care and some great skincare products can help you get back that lost glow.Also read: Ladies, struggling with dark spots on the face? This could be the reason! BABY BIRD: This gives you a firm chin, jawline and neck. Stand or sit with your back straight and tilt your head up looking at the ceiling. Drop your jaw and close it, feeling the stretch in your neck and below your chin. Repeat five times. Tilt your head to the right and repeat the exercise for five more repetitions before tilting your head to the left for a final five repetitions.FISH FACE: Tighten and tone the jaw and chin with the “fish-face” pose. Pucker your lips and then suck in your cheeks. Hold the pose for a count of 20; release and then repeat for 5 times. Or hold your face like this for as long as you can and whenever you can.KISS THE CEILING: This exercise works the jaw and neck and can be done standing or sitting. Hold your arms at your sides, tilt your head back slightly and pucker your lips, as if trying to “kiss” the ceiling. Hold for 10 seconds, then release. Repeat 5 times.HEAD RAISES: These help firm up and tone neck and chin. Stand or sit in a straight-back chair while looking directly ahead of you. Slowly and gently tilt your head back as far as possible. Hold the position for a count of five before returning to the starting position. Repeat 10 to 15 times daily.TONGUE REACH: This is a yoga exercise for the neck. It firms and tones the chin. Stick out your tongue, and say “Ahhh”. Hold your tongue out while keeping the rest of your face relaxed. Hold for 60 seconds and repeat 5 times.REVAMP YOUR BEAUTY REGIME:advertisementLOOK OUT FOR products that contain ingredients such as peptides, which help relax the muscles, thus reducing the pores and making the skin look smoother. With continuous use they help stimulate collagen production as well. INCLUDE a neck cream and lifting serums in your daily regimen. ALWAYS apply products on your neck making upward strokes. REMEMBER to massage the jawline every day when applying cream. CHECK OUT for ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and vitamin C – these hydrate the skin and keep blemishes at bay.DIET DEETS:Opt for foods that boost skin elasticity in your daily diet. Here are some good suggestions:KIWI: It’s a rich source of vitamin C. The nutrient helps in boosting collagen production. Research has indicated that this fruit can double collagen synthesis in the skin. It also fights free radicals.CABBAGE: This low-calorie vegetable contains collagen-producing agents. Collagen is important to keep facial skin tight and youthful. Presence of antioxidants and phytonutrients like lutenin, thiocyanates and zeaxanthin makes it a super food vis–vis skin hydration and elasticity.BEANS: They contain hyaluronic acid, which boosts elasticity and increases collagen formation, making your skin appear supple and youthful.PULL UP YOUR POSTURE:” Make sure you hold your head high with your neck stretched as much as possible. This posture is also an immediate confidence booster. ” Avoid using a pillow as it tends to scrunch up your neck causing lines and wrinkles.” Keep your chin parallel to the ground – keep reminding yourself.” Don’t read when lounging on the bed and avoid slouching when walking.” Sit up straight when working at your desk.
By Abhishek Hore New Delhi, May 1 (PTI) The All India Football Federation (AIFF) is set to recommend Sunil Chhetri for the countrys fourth highest civilian award — the Padma Shri — a huge recognition for the nations all-time leading goal-scorer should he get the honour. Chhetri leads the India chart with 56 goals from 97 appearances and is one of the forwards with better strike rates in world football. The AIFF said that it was considering recommending a top player for the honour without confirming the name, but sources close to the apex body said it was Chhetri, as the federation recognises the Indian captains contribution to the sport. “If there is one name in Indian football who deserves to be recommended for such a huge honour, it is undoubtedly Sunil Chhetri. The AIFF recognises Sunils contribution and has already looking at the criteria,” a well-placed source said. When contacted, AIFF general secretary Kushal Das also said that the federation has recommended Jeje Lalpekhlua and Gurpreet Singh Sandhus names for the Arjuna Awards. Asked if Chhetri is being considered by the AIFF for the Padma Shri, Das did not confirm, but, in what seemed a giveaway, lavished rich praise on the 33-year-old star striker. Padma awards are announced on the eve of Republic Day, January 26, every year. Last June, Chhetri became the fourth highest goal-scorer among active international players when he struck his 54th against the Kyrgyzstan, surpassing Englands Wayne Rooney. He was then behind USAs Clint Dempsey, Portugals Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi of Argentina.advertisement The Bengaluru FC skipper, who began his career at Mohun Bagan in 2002 as a 17-year-old, is Indias all-time highest goal-scorer in international fixtures. Besides, he is also the all-time highest goal-scorer in the domestic league among Indians. Since then, he has played for 10 clubs across five states and three countries. In 2010, he travelled to US, to play for Major League Soccer outfit Sporting Kansas City, but did not play a single match. In October 2012, he made his debut for Portuguese second-division outfit Sporting CP B, though he would make just two more appearances for them. PTI AH PM PM PM
