He was arrested in December 2015, more than a year after her body was pulled from the Red River.Crown attorney James Ross told the jury of 12 “Sebastian” was allegedly an alias for Cormier and what Fontaine had known him as.Cormier has pleaded not guilty.Fontaine’s great-aunt and primary caregiver Thelma Favel was the first witness to testify. She confirmed it was Fontaine’s voice on the recording before breaking into tears. Other family and friends were wiping tears away as the recording played.The court heard Fontaine was last seen leaving a Winnipeg motel on Aug. 8, 2014. She had told her social worker she was meeting an older man by the name of “Sebastian.” Her body was found wrapped in a duvet on Aug. 17, 2014.The last time Favel saw her great-niece was on June 30, 2014.

Favel says she “didn’t know how to function without a father.”The Crown told the jury Fontaine was a young girl surviving on the streets of Winnipeg.“She was possessed with all uncertainty and experiences of a 15-year-old,” said Ross.Ross told the court the Crown intends to prove Cormier had sexual intercourse with Fontaine, and that was why Cormier killed her.He said prior to her disappearance Fontaine and Cormier got into an argument. Fontaine threatened to report Cormier to police for sleeping with a minor.Ross also said Cormier was worried Fontaine would report him to police for possessing a stolen vehicle.Fifty people are expected to testify over the next five weeks.last_img read more

BCs auto insurer in financial dumpster fire major reforms needed minister

BCs auto insurer in financial dumpster fire major reforms needed minister

first_imgVANCOUVER – Major reforms are on the way to extinguish a “financial dumpster fire” at British Columbia’s public auto insurer, which projects a $1.3-billion net loss this fiscal year, the province’s attorney general said Monday.David Eby blamed the crisis at the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia on years of “reckless decisions” by the previous Liberal government, including taking more than $1 billion from the insurer and transferring it to government coffers.He also said the government ignored warnings and recommendations made in a 2014 report by independent consultants Ernst & Young, and appears to have scrubbed the recommendations from a version of the report presented to the public.“They knew the dumpster was on fire, but they pushed it behind the building instead of trying to put the fire out,” he said at a news conference, adding that before last spring’s election, the Liberals projected ICBC’s losses to be $11 million.“British Columbians were not told the truth about the state of ICBC. They were told the problem was not serious — a loss of about 100 times less than was actually the case. Now British Columbians are facing the full consequences of the previous government’s decision to bury the truth.”The insurance corporation has already posted a net loss of $935 million for the first nine months of the 2017-18 fiscal year. It said the “sizable and significant loss” is due to a rapid increase in the number of collisions in the province, as well as the rising costs of those claims.Eby, who is also minister responsible for the insurance corporation, said it’s yet to be determined how rates for drivers will be affected, but he intends to keep them affordable, with high-risk drivers paying more while low-risk drivers pay less.He said the government will announce measures to address the crisis in the coming weeks. He said it was seriously looking at a number of different initiatives, including caps on financial awards for minor injuries, changes to deductibles and other reforms aimed at lowering legal and auto body costs.The government is not considering no-fault insurance, he said, as it wants to protect the right to sue and recover damages from the court system.Eby did not provide a copy of the draft Ernst & Young report he accused the Liberals of redacting. But former finance minister Mike de Jong told The Province newspaper that the government removed at least one of the recommendations, around minor-injury caps, because it wasn’t prepared to consider it.Liberal legislator John Yap said the threat posed by rising claims and payouts is well-known and the previous government took steps to deal with the issue. As well, a third-party review of ICBC was ordered by the B.C. Liberals and delivered on July 10, so it was waiting on the desk of the new minister, he said.“Instead of taking the immediate actions the report called for, David Eby has done nothing for seven months except order another review,” said Yap.“It is clear the B.C. NDP made promises they can’t deliver on and so are looking to lay blame instead of accepting responsibility for that. David Eby has a blueprint for moving forward at ICBC but keeps delaying any action and is allowing the problem to grow even worse under his watch.”Eby said the situation at ICBC would have “implications” for the provincial budget, but he referred questions to Finance Minister Carole James, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Asked whether he would rule out privatizing the public insurance corporation, he said ICBC provides many important services to the public, including driver licensing, and Ontario’s privatized regime has not delivered lower costs to ratepayers.“It’s not simply a matter of who owns the insurer. It’s a matter of management. It’s our intention to get management under control at ICBC.”— Follow @ellekane on Twitter.last_img read more

Aji Thdem Festival Expanding Moroccan Comedy Serving the Community

Rabat – Les Inqualifiables are taking their festival to the next level.In a press conference held at Mega Mall Rabat, the comic duo composed of Amine Belghazi and Obeid Allah Hlal, announced the line-up for the 4th edition of “Aji Tehdem (Come and Digest!)”, which will take place in several cities (and countries) during the holy month of Ramadan.This year, the event will become a humorous traveling festival that will bring together comics from all horizons such as the iconic Abdelkader Secteur, Winner of the “Comedia Show”; Bassou, the actor of “Lahbib”; Haytam Miftah; and humorist Youssef Ksiyer, among other prominent names on the Moroccan stand-up scene.

Joshua Hoole, from Ecclefechan, near Lockerbie, was training for the Platoon Sergeants’ Battle Course when he died on July 19. A soldier who was shot dead at an RAF weapons range was taking part in a night-time training exercise involving around 20 servicemen.Emergency services were called to RAF Tain, north of Inverness, at around 6pm on Tuesday and a cordon was set up around the base following the incident.Police Scotland, which is leading the investigation, would not say if the death was being treated as accidental and around 30 officers are involved in the inquiry at the base on the Dornoch Firth.Chief Insp Iain MacLelland, who confirmed a firearm was involved, said the nature of the incident would require a continued police presence in the area in the days ahead.He added: “We are keeping a very open mind into the cause of the incident. It is the very early stages of the investigation and as the investigation progresses we’ll continue to release further information into the nature of that inquiry.”last_img read more

The father of all Lego computers The Lego Turing Machine

The father of all Lego computers The Lego Turing Machine

first_imgThe Turing machine is a tape-based, proto-computer that is capable of working simple algorithms. Known as a kind of “state machine”, it was devised by Alan Turing in the 1930s and is an extremely important part of computer science history. Two men, Jeroen van den Bos and Davy Landman, have built a Lego Turing Machine and shot the video above about their project.A full explanation of the Turing machine is available if you’d like to learn more, but the video explains the basics. The Turing machine works with a tape — which is essentially its program — which is broken down into binary segments. It modern thinking the tape would be populated by 1s and 0s, in Turing’s time it was the same, and in Lego parlance it’s little black rods flipped to one side or the other.The Lego Turing machine uses an optical scanner (the head) which would not have been available to Turing. It, like the rest of the parts used in the machine, works with the LEGO Mindstorms NXT kit.By running through the tape and using a sensor, switch, and basic logic the machine is able to perform simple operations. In this case the very short tape simply calculates the sum of 2 and 2. (Spoiler alert…) At the end of the video the Lego Turing machine correctly identifies the answer as being 4.The machine was built for the “Turings Erfenis” exposition which honors the 100th birthday of Alan Turing, June 23, 2012. The event is organized by the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica in Amsterdam.The (very well done) video was shot with a high-end Panasonic AF101 camcorder and a Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 lenses as well as a number of Nikon AI-s primes lenses including the 35mm f/2.0, 50mm f/1.4, 55mm f/2.8 macro, 85mm f/1.4, and the 105mm f/2.5. The use of that Voightlander lens was made possible by using the Novoflex Nikon to Micro Four-Thirds adapter.More at Lego Turing Machine, via Vimeolast_img read more

Riverdale Delivers Christmas Horror and an Underwhelming Reveal

Riverdale Delivers Christmas Horror and an Underwhelming Reveal

first_img ‘Riverdale’ Season 4 Trailer Toasts to a Mysterious Senior YearSDCC 2019: ‘Riverdale’ Cast Spills Details on Core ‘Mystery’ for Season 4 Stay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.center_img We’ve reached the midseason finale of Riverdale and the show just went for it in a way we haven’t seen since season one. The first season was only half as long. As a result, the entire thing moved at a blindingly fast pace. That made for an absolutely bonkers show that was a ton of fun to watch, but it wasn’t always the best thing for the narrative. Story threads were dismissed too quickly, never given the time they needed to land. Season two has learned from the first. It’s using the extra episodes to slow things down just a bit and let the mystery breathe. It can build tension and have it persist from week to week. It can shine a spotlight on smaller details, lending itself even more to ridiculous fan theories. All in all, it’s led to a better show. Sometimes though, we miss that insanity we fell in love with in season one. That’s what last night’s episode was for.Before signing off for a few weeks, Riverdale gave us a Christmas episode. Don’t scrutinize the timeline of the series too much; it doesn’t make a ton of sense. This episode moves too quickly for you to really give its setting too much thought anyway. The gang is giving each other Secret Santa gifts, and it’s super awkward because two couples have broken up. And they’ve bought presents for each other that would make sense for couples, but a little weird when they’re still trying to be friends. Also, Veronica sees Archie and Betty flirting, and it’s clear she’s not entirely cool with that. After the opening scene, the gang goes their separate ways. They spend most of the episode apart, which doesn’t make for a very festive Christmas episode, but works as a midseason finale. They’re at a low point here, and we hope they’ll all be reunited by the end of the season.Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl Blossom, Casey Cott as Kevin Keller, Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge and Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones (Photo: Katie Yu/The CW)Cheryl has the least to do, which is a shame because I really enjoyed her and Josie’s story. Seeing her become more possessive and manipulative was seriously creepy, and I wish this story got a little more forward momentum before the break. Instead, Cheryl’s story focuses on her house not being as festive as it normally is. Her mom tells her they’re out of money, now that her dad isn’t around to traffic drugs via maple syrup anymore. Cheryl goes all out on decorations anyway, telling her mother to find a way to make money in the new year. Nothing much comes of this, but we do get a gloriously messed up line from Nana Rose. She says Penelope should have drowned the Blossom twins as babies, “like kittens.” WTF, lady?! Cheryl’s story ends with her mom making out with a dude dressed as Santa. So… I guess we’ll deal with that in January?Veronica’s story is a little more important, but still isn’t the real meat of the episode. Noticing that Archie is stressed out, she learns that he and his dad are struggling with medical bills. They’re selling Christmas trees outside Pop’s to make ends meet. We get some rich people drama, where Veronica’s parents call her a communist for wanting to help others. Ooh, Riverdale’s getting topical. This is like watching news about the tax bill, only the people arguing are much prettier. Veronica goes snooping through her father’s study, and learns that they secretly bought Pop’s Chock’lit Shop. That’s enough to convince her that her parents can pay Fred’s medical bills after all. She uses her mother’s American Excess card (that joke’s still real good), which sets off a fraud alert and Veronica suddenly has a face full of angry parents. She demands to be let into the family business, considering that her name is on all those papers. Her father finally agrees to let her in, and she accepts what she’s told. Frustratingly, we don’t get to hear any of that. Veronica knows what her family is doing, but we don’t. The show wants to preserve the mystery of what exactly the Lodges are up to, which… fine. I guess the show needs to keep us in the dark a little bit over the break. Especially after the way this episode ends. More on that later.KJ Apa as Archie Andrews and Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge (Photo: Katie Yu/The CW)Now let’s talk about Jughead, because holy crap. In any other episode, Jughead’s story would be the main plot. The fact that something as messed up as this is the second biggest plotline of the night just proves how wild this episode was. FP is making all the deliveries Penny wants him to. As the operation grows bigger, he has to bring in more serpents. Jughead wants to help clean up the mess he made, but FP won’t let him. Jughead decides to take matters into his own hands. He recruits a few other teenage Serpents, telling them how she’ll eventually control the entire gang unless they do something. Their solution? Kidnap her, driver her out to Greendale and tell her to set up shop somewhere else. When she shows her snake tattoo and says Jughead can’t do that to another serpent, he CUTS HER TATTOO OFF, oh my god Jughead, what the hell? Despite his dad’s efforts to keep him out, Jughead is deeper into the Serpents than he has ever been. His dad freaks out when he learns what his kid did, warning Jughead that Penny would be back. So we have that to look forward to later next season. Meanwhile, Jughead is so deep in the serpents that he doesn’t even get back with Betty at the end of the episode. Though Veronica tells Archie she loves him at the end, and the two kiss, Bughead has no such luck. Jughead learns that Betty has given him a really nice typewriter for Christmas. Instead of thanking her in person, he says he’ll just call. Or text. Damn kid, that’s cold.Archie and Betty’s story is the real meat here. How big a deal is it? In the middle of it, Archie and Betty kiss, but neither we nor the characters have time to even process it. It happens, and is never mentioned again. The mystery of the Black Hood is just more important. It starts when they notice that Mr. Svenson hasn’t shown up for work lately. They go to his house, but can’t find him anywhere, and Betty gets a finger in the mail from the Black Hood. Later, she gets a call, saying if she doesn’t figure out Riverdale’s “original sin,” Svenson will die. Archie and Betty’s journey takes them back to the creepiest nuns on television (and that’s saying something), who point them to Nana Rose Blossom. Good, that kittens line wasn’t enough, we definitely needed to see more of this woman. She tells a story about how Svenson, as a child, was responsible for blaming the innocent traveling preacher for his family’s murder. And that the town buried the man alive. God, what is wrong with this place? So the adults have always been this crazy?Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, KJ Apa as Archie Andrews, and Charles Melton as Reggie Mantle (Photo: Katie Yu/The CW)Archie and Betty find the gravesite, where they believe the Black Hood has buried Svenson. It turns out to be an empty grave. It’s a trap. The Black Hood is standing right behind them. He orders Betty at gunpoint to bury Archie alive. This episode goes to some messed up places. She does, but thankfully, they had the foresight to call the police before investigating the gravesite. The Black Hood is distracted by approaching sirens and Betty whacks him with her shovel. She really is the best. A chase ensues, and Sheriff Keller shoots the Black Hood. He pulls off the mask to reveal… Old Man Svenson? Yeah, nobody’s buying this, right? Even Jughead’s ending narration calls out how the mystery is wrapped up with a neat little bow. That’s not what Riverdale does. This reveal is a huge letdown because, even though it all makes sense, it’s too obvious. Hey, the Black Hood is the random, vaguely creepy character we introduced two episodes ago. That’s bad storytelling to the point where it feels deliberate. It certainly succeeds in keeping us in suspense until the show returns. We know who wore the mask, but we also know it’s not over. There’s more to the story that will come out in 2018. That doesn’t excuse the fact that this reveal is a bit of a cop-out, but there is some comfort knowing there’s more to the story. I mean, there has to be, right? Somebody’s taking pictures of Archie and Veronica making up and kissing on the front porch. That’s gotta be connected. Right? Please?Even with the letdown ending, this was still a fantastic end to a strong second season of Riverdale. It combined everything we love about this series into one overwhelming hour of insanity. It played with our emotions yet again with the quick reunion of… Varchie… but gave us no such satisfaction with Bughead. And hey, even the disappointing conclusion to the Black Hood mystery promised there was more to come. They have to have known that nobody was going to be happy with this resolution. The mystery isn’t over. Let’s just hope they capitalize on that when Riverdale returns in January.last_img read more

The company is hoping the more radical G8 makes a deeper impression. Josh Miller/CNET LG’s next smartphone may have you seeing double. And no, it’s not because of a foldable display. The company will launch a smartphone, whose name hasn’t been finalized, that will have an option for a second-screen attachment, according to a person familiar with the situation. The attachment, which the person describes as a sort of case with a screen. The second screen would connect to the device and potentially double the total screen size. It’s one of multiple phones launching at the Mobile World Congress trade show next month, the person said. While the company is mulling the G8 name, it’s unclear whether the multiple-screen phone will carry the name of its flagship line. There’s a chance that one of the more conventional-looking devices will carry the G8 ThinQ name instead, but that hasn’t been decided on. Its flagship smartphones, the LG G7 ThinQ and LG V40 ThinQ, are decent devices that often get overlooked for flashier alternatives.  So the G8 needs to make a splash. Samsung has already teased its foldable smartphone, but other companies are still dealing with issues like wear and tear of a flexible screen and software and user experience issues. Samsung believes it’s solved some of those concerns. With Samsung holding its Galaxy S10 launch a few days before MWC, LG has the opportunity to steal the show. A number of vendors, however, will be at the conference to show off their phones, with 5G likely to be one of the big themes. The story originally published on January 16 at 4:24 p.m. PT.Update, 4:55 p.m. PT: To clarify that LG is launching multiple phones at MWC, and that this phone may not be the G8.Update, January 17 at 9:07 a.m. PT: To include additional background.Smartphones in 2018: Biggest winners and losers.

When users open the site, it immediately begins a two-minute countdown while encouraging them to listen to the sounds of waves and, well, do nothing. If the mouse or keyboard is touched, a red “fail” message flashes and the timer resets. Within a week, the site had 2 million visitors.”We knew we hit a nerve, that there must be a need out there to help people relax,” says Tew, who is based in San Francisco. He immediately began working on the concept for Calm.com, which offers richer, moving scenery and three options for timed relaxation exercises.Since its launch in May 2012 Calm.com has been attracting roughly 500,000 unique visitors per month, driven mostly by Facebook, Twitter and word-of-mouth. Tew believes the reason is simple: People understand the value of being able to relax for a few minutes but find it difficult to do so on their own.Backed by $415,000 in angel funding acquired last February, Tew and his team recently moved to a subscription-based model. There’s a free introductory program that teaches users the basics of chilling out; subscribers pay $10 per year to access premium programs like positivity, creativity, focus, energy, confidence and more.”More than 30 percent of our business is return business, so we have a lot of people using it on a regular basis,” Tew says. “Our goal is to turn those half-million [users] into multiple millions of subscribers.”Sounds like bliss. This story appears in the July 2013 issue of . Subscribe » Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.

Mozilla removes individual cookie management in Firefox 60 from preferences

first_imgMozilla removes individual cookie management in Firefox 60 from preferences by Martin Brinkmann on February 26, 2018 in Firefox – Last Update: February 28, 2018 – 151 commentsThe most recent version of Firefox Nightly, currently at version 60, comes with changes to Firefox’s cookie management. Mozilla merged cookie settings with site data in the web browser which impacts how you configure and manage cookie options.If you run Firefox 59 or earlier, you can load about:preferences#privacy to manage privacy related settings in Firefox. If you set the history to “use custom settings for history” or “remember history”, you get an option manage cookie settings and to remove individual cookies from Firefox.A click on the link or button opens a new browser window in which all set cookies are listed. You can use it to find set cookies, look up information, remove selected or all cookies.Update: Some commenters stated that Firefox users may still manage individual cookies in the following ways for now:Load chrome://browser/content/preferences/cookies.xul to display the dialog.Click on the information button in the Firefox address bar, and navigate to “right arrow” > More Information > View Cookies. Erase the site name to list all set cookies.Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Shift-I to open the Developer Tools and switch to the Storage tab (enable it under settings if it is not there). This lists only the cookies for the active site.Check out this post on Reddit by the creator of the change to better understand why Mozilla made it.Mozilla engineers changed this in recent versions of Firefox 60 (currently on the Nightly channel).If you open the privacy section of about:preferences, you may notice the following:History lists only three options. The “accept cookies from websites” option is no longer listed under History.A new Cookies and Site Data section is available. It lists the cookie preferences that were listed under History in previous versions.The “show cookies” link has been removed from the history. It is replaced by a combined management option that includes Site Data and cookies.Cookie settings moved from “use custom settings for history” to a better location in the preferences. Firefox users who did not select the custom option were probably never exposed to the cookie preferences in first place. Also, all options but one that existed previously are still there, some, however, under a different name.There is no “show cookies” button anymore; Mozilla moved it to Settings under “Cookies and Site Data”. A click on the button displays the new management interface. It looks similar to the cookie management interface of previous versions of Firefox but includes storage as well now.The interface lists sites and the number of set cookies and used storage, as well as the time the site was accessed the last time in the browser.While the new interface looks great, you may notice that it is no longer possible to list or remove individual cookies from Firefox using it.Mozilla mentions the fact on the official bug listing.As per our UI concept in bug 1421690 and (finally) following the spec guidelines (https://www.w3.org/TR/webstorage/#privacy) we’d like to merge the cookies settings into the “Site Data” section and move them to top-level.This also means removing individual cookie management from about:preferences.This is bad for users who want full control over cookies. While it is possible that Mozilla will implement the removed functionality before Firefox 60 hits the stable channel, Firefox users may use extensions to restore the functionality.  Check out our updated Firefox cookies management guide for a list of extensions that support Firefox 57 and newer, and Firefox 56.x and older.Google Chrome includes an option to list and remove individual cookies, still.Now You: Do you need the removed functionality?Related articlesConfigure Firefox To Delete All Cookies On Exit But Select OnesEdit or remove cookies from Firefox’s Developer ToolbarGet a listing of all Internet cookies with CookieSpyHow to deal with Firefox extensions that require cookiesHow to disable third-party cookies in FirefoxSummaryArticle NameMozilla removes individual cookie management in Firefox 60 from preferencesDescriptionThe most recent version of Firefox Nightly, currently at version 60, comes with changes to Firefox’s cookie management.

The Artis Q.zen combines this innovative X-ray source with a new detector technology designed to support interventional imaging in ultra-low-dose ranges to patients, doctors and medical staff, particularly during longer interventions.The second generation of Siemens’ flat emitter technology is key to the advances made in the X-ray tube for the Artis Q and Artis Q.zen product lines. Instead of the coiled filaments used in conventional X-ray tubes, flat emitter technology is used exclusively in the new tube to emit electrons. Flat emitters are designed to enable smaller quadratic focal spots that lead to improved visibility of small vessels by up to 70 percent. Both physicians and patients benefit from a high level of detail in imaging-supported interventional therapy. Neurologists can more precisely measure blood circulation in specific areas of the brain, for example, while stenoses in the heart’s smallest blood vessels can be spotted in coronary angiography.Examinations using ultra-low-dose radiationThe Artis Q.zen series has been designed to combine the X-ray tube with a detector technology that allows detection at ultra-low radiation levels. Artis Q.zen imaging can use doses as low as half the standard levels applied in angiography. This improvement is the result of several innovations, including a fundamental change in detector technology. Until now, almost all detectors have been based on amorphous silicon. The new crystalline silicon structure of the Artis Q.zen detector is designed to be more homogenous, allowing for more effective amplification of the signal, greatly reducing the electronic noise even at ultra-low doses.The Artis Q.zen was developed to support better imaging quality at ultra-low-dose ranges, reducing the radiation exposure of patients, physicians and medical staff. This is especially important in dose-sensitive application fields such as pediatric cardiology and radiology, or electrophysiology, which is being used more frequently as rates of cardiac arrhythmia increase in an aging population.Innovative applications for interventional imagingIn addition to the hardware, several software applications have been designed to improve interventional imaging. In coronary artery disease treatment, the applications allow precise correlation of angiography images with ultrasound images taken by a probe inside the coronary arteries. Stents are imaged in real time during therapy, with motion stabilization created by simultaneous correction for the heartbeat.Other new 3-D applications are designed to image the smallest structures inside the head. Their high spatial resolution is crucial for imaging intracranial stents or other miniscule structures such as the cochlea in the inner ear. Moving organs such as the lungs can be imaged in 3-D in less than three seconds, reducing motion artifacts and the required amount of contrast agent. Through visualization and measurement of blood volumes in the liver or other organs, Siemens’ functional 3-D imaging provides a basis for planning therapies such as chemo-embolization of hepatic tumors.The Artis Q and Artis Q.zen are pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance and are not yet commercially available in the United States.For more information: www.siemens.com/healthcare FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享last_img read more

Get away for a break on a budget this autumn with

first_imgGet away for a break on a budget this autumn with our pick of five flights to France, Spain, Italy and Croatia, all less than £50.1. Girona, Spain from £30Its airport is offically called Girona-Costa Brava, while Ryanair call it Girona Barcelona, which both hint that most people head straight off to the beach or Barcelona. But Girona itself is very much worthy of your attention, especially now summer’s heat has eased. Walk the walls of the city on the Passeig de la Muralla, pausing to rest among cacti like sprouting stars in the gardens opposite the Banys Àrabs (a 12th century bathhouse). Or walk the walk at night… spooky! 2. Pisa, Italy from £30You can’t go to Pisa without getting a photo of you holding up the Leaning Tower. You may find yourself in a feature called ’10 cheesiest holiday photos’ but there’s a time and a place to be a total tourist, and that’s here. Photo opps aside, there is much more to do in this pretty, romantic Tuscan city. Like eat. Pick a place for pizza in Piazza dei Cavaleri or a tourist-free trattoria around Via San Martino, order a bottle of sun-nourished Suvereto and raise a tipsy toast to la dolce vita. 3. Santander, Spain from £34Better known these days as one of the world’s largest banks, Santander got its name from its home, the port city in Cantabria, northern Spain. One way of getting there is by ferry, from Portsmouth or Plymouth, which despite taking 20 hours, has its advantages, like the chance of seeing cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises). Or you could just take a short flight for a short break. Take a windswept walk up to Cabo Mayor lighthouse to earn a plate of rabas (fried calamari) and blow your entire holiday budget in neoclassical style at the Gran Casino del Sardinero.

Zadar, Croatia from £30Late season sun: the three magic words caress like a warm sea breeze along the Dalmatian coast. Where lies Zadar, a walled port in the same vein as the more-visited Dubrovnik further south. If you fancy a change from drinking wine and perusing menus studded with seafood, check out Krka National Park an hour inland. Swim in whirlpools, hike in wooded hills and keep an eye out for the 18 species of bats found in the park. Did you know there were 18 species of bats?! No? Oh well, back to that bottle of wine. 4. Faro, Portugal from £34Faro isn’t that far away! Oh dear. Far and away one of Europe’s top autumn golfing destinations, you’ll probably share the plane with a fair few men of a certain age in sleeveless pink Pringle jumpers. But you don’t have to have a handicap of six to take a sunny late season break on the Algarve. And you should really stop on Faro itself on your way to the beach/pool/villa/golf course, even if it is just to take a stroll through its medieval streets and shop for a new jumper.More: 8 great places to visit in Portugallast_img read more

Increased dust as temperatures soar

Increased dust as temperatures soar

first_imgAs temperatures soared to 35C inland on Wednesday, the labour department also warned of increased levels of dust in the air.The public, and especially vulnerable groups, were urged to avoid going outdoors until dust levels abate.The average hourly concentration of dust particles with a diameter less than 10 microns (PM10) in the atmosphere increased to between 50μg/m3 and 72μg/m3 (microgrammes per cubic metre).It is therefore expected that the average value within 24 hours will exceed the limit value of 50 μg/m3 set under the relevant legislation.“Due to the small size of particles and the possible negative effects on human health, members of the public, particularly vulnerable population groups – children, the elderly and the sick – are advised to avoid spending time outside,” the department said.According to the met office the dust will subside later in the day but is expected to return on Saturday.Temperatures are expected to plunge by five degrees celsius on Thursday, to 30C inland and around 26C in the coastal areas, but from Friday are expected to rise again. By Sunday it will be expected to reach the same levels as Wednesday, 35C inland and 28C to 29C in the coastal areas.These are about 5C higher than the average seasonal of 29C inland and 26C in the coastal areas.More information and real-time updates as regards dust may be found at www. airquality.dli.mlsi .gov.cy You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoTotal Restore SupplementUS Cardiologist: It’s Like a Pressure Wash for Your InsidesTotal Restore SupplementUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoAuthorities release five of 12 Israeli rape suspects, seven due in court FridayUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
