New Brunswick man facing two firstdegree murder charges after house fire

first_imgTRACADIE, N.B. – New Brunswick RCMP say a 19-year-old Tracadie man is facing first-degree murder charges after two bodies were found following a weekend house fire.Police say Benoit Bertin appeared in court Tuesday and was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count each of attempted murder and arson in connection with Sunday’s fire in Six Roads, about 10 kilometres north of Tracadie.Police say that when officers arrived at the scene just after 1:30 a.m., they found a man who had been able to flee the burning home — he was taken to hospital in Fredericton where he is in critical condition.A second man was found a short distance from the home and was arrested.The Mounties say a search of the burned out home on Monday led to the discovery of the bodies of an unidentified man and woman.Bertin has been sent for a 30-day psychiatric evaluation and is scheduled to appear in Tracadie provincial court Dec. 13.last_img read more

Central African Republic Nearly 700 people seeking refuge near UN base relocated

Over 20,000 people settled around the Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) base after ex-Séléka members attacked an internally displaced person (IDP) camp in Evêché, the Prefect’s office and the UN mission’s camp. “Consultation sessions with the households allowed us to ensure that their particular needs are met and they are fully informed and consulted all along the process,” said IOM CAR Chief of Mission Jean-François Aguilera, referring to numerous sessions held with camp residents in partnership with the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Following August’s visit of the Humanitarian Coordinator and the Ministry of Humanitarian Actions of Kaga Bandoro, it was recommended that all IDPs be urgently relocated to safe nearby locations. The relocation of the first bloc of the provisional camp ran from 17 to 25 October and involved 312 households, 15 of which returned to their old neighbourhood. The relocation of ‘Bloc Nine,’ which was near a fuel depot – exposing residents to health risks – began on 26 October and finished on 3 November. It included a total of 319 households, with one returning to its old neighbourhood. From 4 to 7 November, 67 households close to ‘Bloc One’ were also relocated. Bloc One had complicated the landing and take-off of planes, forcing humanitarian aviation operators to suspend flights – gravely affecting humanitarian efforts by preventing programme implementations and medical evacuations. “The dangerous position of Blocs One and Nine made it very clear to IOM and CAR’s humanitarian team that everyone must be urgently relocated to a safer location,” Mr. Aguilera said. IOM assisted the 682 relocated households in transporting all their belongings, including huts and hangars, to safe new locations. They also received non-food item kits and $44 per household, which totalled $30,103. The 16 returning households were provided with return kits and assisted in rehabilitating their homes and transporting their belongings. CAR is experiencing a resurgence of violence and faces the risk of repeating the devastating crisis that beset the country four years ago. The number of both IDPs and refugees in neighbouring countries have dramatically increased over the past few months. read more

New export facilities for UK automotive unveiled by Business Secretary

Business Secretary Vince Cable was at the Port of Southampton today to unveil a new multi-deck trade vehicle terminal, which will be able to meet extra demand for exporting British-built cars overseas.The fourth terminal is part of a major investment by Associated British Ports (ABP) to expand its vehicle export facilities, enabling it to accommodate the increased number of vehicles being shipped to overseas markets, particularly China. Last year UK automotive exports were up 15% to a record high of £29.5 billion in cash terms.Following the opening, ABP announced a further £7.5m investment to construct a fifth multi-deck trade vehicle terminal at the port. The visit and announcement coincides with other local investment by the Department’s flagship policy – the Regional Growth Fund.Business Secretary Vince Cable said, “The British car industry is a great success story and our increasing exports are proving a boon for the Port of Southampton – the opening of a new vehicle terminal along with provisional funding from the Regional Growth Fund for the City of Southampton’s infrastructure will allow further growth for the future.Click through to SMMT’s monthly automotive manufacturing data feed for the latest news on UK car, commercial vehicle and engine production, as well as export statistics.To find out more about the ongoing work between industry and government to create a transformed business environment for the automotive industry in the UK, visit the Automotive Council website.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

Vegetable patches are moving to the front garden survey shows

Vegetable patches are moving from the back garden to the front, so gardeners can show off to their neighbours according to a new survey.Rather than just having a patch at the bottom of the garden that gets dug over and is not planted to be attractive, gardeners are integrating strawberries, tomatoes and beans with ornamental plants in hanging baskets and pots stationed near their front doors.The new information is Wyevale Garden Centres’ senior buying team, combined with survey data from more than 27,000 British gardeners.While hanging baskets were going out of fashion for the past few years, they have recently seen a resurgence, with sales of ready-made hanging baskets up by a third in the past year.Also performing well are climbing roses and clematis plants, which can attractively curl around a front door.The experts said that front gardens are receiving more attention partly due to space, as many British gardeners have smaller gardens than previous generations, with limited back garden or no garden at all.They also want to be the envy of their neighbours and to show off their gardening efforts to the public both for those passing by and on social media.Mark Sage, head of horticulture at Wyevale Garden Centres, told The Telegraph: “I think people are spending as much time if not more on their front garden as the back. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. “The vegetable patch isn’t restricted to the back garden anymore, that’s something we have seen.”Usually we see a veg plot as something that’s at the bottom of the garden that you dig over but now we are seeing veg plants and ornamentals in the same place.”Balcony tomatoes, patio beans, if you plant all season strawberries you can have them all through the year, but mix them in with ornamental plants in window boxes in  hanging baskets so it looks good, smells good and tastes good.”He said that he has seen knock-on effects in streets where people begin to make their front gardens attractive: “Gardening in particular is a confidence lead pastime, and if your next-door neighbour sees you’ve put effort into your front garden it can start a snowball effect and suddenly half a dozen people on the street will have tended their front garden.Mr Sage added that well-tended front gardens can increase the value of a property, explaining: “We know that if a house is well looked after and tended it increases the value of the property, from a community point of view it has huge benefits about how people respect their areas” read more

Happy Suit Could Help Astronauts Beat Space Blues

first_img Scientists Discover Possible Interstellar VisitorWater Vapor Detected on Potentially ‘Habitable’ Planet Stay on target I get anxious even thinking about blasting off in a rocket to the cosmos. I can’t even imagine the stress of actually being an astronaut.Researchers are continuously looking for new ways to help space explorers cope with the mental pressures of a zero-gravity life.A 2017 study suggested the psychological benefits of gardening. Now, scientists at Florida Polytechnic University are developing a so-called “happy suit.”The next-generation outfit will not only make astronauts more comfortable and efficient, the school said, but also keep them content.Space travel is not all fun and games: Some folks slip into a depression due to insufficient exercise, excessive exposure to light, and lack of sleep. And wearing a bulky onesie doesn’t help.Florida Poly professors Arman Sargolzaei and Melba Horton, along with computer science student James Holland, are developing Smart Sensory Skin (S3)—a new technology that detects emotional and physical deficiencies through wireless sensors.The embedded sensors send an immediate response to the suit, telling it to adjust the environment (change temperature, light exposure or color, oxygen levels) to fit each individual’s needs.“It’s vital for astronauts to be mentally healthy during missions, and right now there’s no active, real-time solution to help them when they feel stressed or anxious,” Sargolzaei, professor of electrical engineering, said in a statement. “This technology would provide them with immediate relief to their state of mind.”Eventually, S3 will be incorporated into clothing, allowing Earthbound physicians to monitor pulse rate, blood pressure, and joint angles from within the atmosphere.“This project started as an assignment when I was a freshman, and I never expected it to grow the way it has,” Holland, now a junior a Florida Poly, said. “I’m excited to see what we can accomplish as our research continues.”In the meantime, cosmonauts can continue earning their green thumb through “plant-mediated” therapies, meant to balance behavioral health, cognitive performance, and overall physical health during long-distance trips.The collaborative enterprise won a grant from NASA’s Florida Space Research Program for its goal of making astronauts happier, safer, fitter, and more productive.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

WHS Softball Senior Profile Antonia Kieran

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — This is the third in a series of profiles celebrating the five recent WHS graduates who played on this year’s varsity softball team.Antonia KieranThe motto of the Wilmington High School Varsity Softball team is “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.”. Antonia Kieran is molded into this saying. Antonia started playing softball at the age of 6 years old with Wilmington little league in the U8 division. You could see immediately that she fell in love with the game at this age.It wasn’t until U-10 that she found the position that she would fall in love with and that was 1b. Throughout the years she played first and pitched in Wilmington in town playing with Dan Ardito and Billy Norman on the summer travel teams. She attended every clinic that was offered through the town in hopes of becoming an elite softball player.Her second year of U-10 she wanted to try out for a travel team that the Noreasters was putting together where her grandfather had spent many years coaching. At the end of tryouts they decided not to put a team together because they didn’t have talent. The director told Antonia’s grandfather that she would never be a good softball player with her skill set.Antonia took this to heart and made it her mission to get better. She went down to the field and practiced every single day on defense. It was her mission to become one of the better defensive players in her age group. The following season with her hard work and dedication she made a U-14 travel team as a first year 12 year old. Playing with the Noreasters for the last 8 years, her skills improved tremendously.As an 8th grader Antonia played Freshman High School softball and played first base every time. As a freshman, she made Varsity and was 2nd in line behind a senior first baseman. The first few games Antonia was chomping at the bit to get an opportunity to show the coaches what she had. By the third game she finally got her opportunity to play and was outstanding in a game versus Stoneham. She made several key plays and never left 1b again for the next four years. Throughout her career at Wilmington High School she made less than 5 errors defensively. She was named Captain her senior year, and a 3 time 300 club earner. She was also named Middlesex League Allstar her senior year. She was referenced in the last edition of the town crier as one of the best defensive first baseman since the late 1990s.Antonia’s parents Tim Kieran and Lisa Faretra would attend all of Antonia’s games throughout her career. Her dad coached her for many years until the age of 16. If you were to ask him what he is most proud about Antonia’s softball career he would tell you that she is the most dedicated and hardest worker he has ever seen. His proudest accomplishment of Antonia is when the director of the Noreasters approached him and stated, “I don’t know what she did but Antonia has become a phenomenal softball player”Antonia’s passion for the game is shown through her heart and dedication; constantly volunteering for clinics to help younger players get better at the game. Antonia will be attending Lesley University where she will continue playing the game that she is so passionate for. She will be studying Higher Education in math in the hopes of one day becoming a high school math teacher and a varsity softball coach.Antonia Kieran(NOTE: The above profile is from Wilmington Little League.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Juneau committee asks for additional sales tax on pot

first_imgJuneau’s Marijuana Committee has decided to recommend the Assembly consider an 8 percent tax on marijuana sales.The Juneau Empire reports that committee members voted 5-2 Thursday in favor of the 3 percent tax on marijuana on top of Juneau’s regular 5 percent sales tax. The issue will be up for voter approval next fall if the Assembly approves the committee’s recommendation.Committee members who approved of the marijuana tax argued that supporters of Ballot Measure 2, which legalized marijuana last year, voted for marijuana to be regulated like alcohol. The city taxes alcohol sales at 8 percent.Members who voted against the proposal cited the fact that the Alaska Marijuana Control Board hasn’t yet released its final regulations for the marijuana industry.last_img read more

How to find the Ender Portal in Minecraft

first_imgSo, you built every amazing, complicated structure you could think of in Minecraft. You even did it in Survival Mode, and painstakingly gathered every single material yourself, availing the wilderness surrounding your base of all its resources. Now, you don’t want to stop playing, but you have completely run out of ideas for projects, so it’s time to hunt down the Ender Dragon and “beat” the game. You can’t do that without finding or building your own Ender Portal, so here’s how to do both!The Ender Portal is found within a stronghold, which is a large dungeon-like structure found underground. The stronghold can be located by using an Eye of Ender, which is a little tough to craft.Obtain an Eye of EnderFirst, you must locate and kill Endermen until one drops an Ender Pearl. Then, you need to find and kill Blaze enemies so they drop a Blaze Rod. Toss the rod in the Crafting Table, and it’ll return Blaze Powder. Craft the Pearl and Rod together, and you’ll net an Eye of Ender. You can also trade with an NPC priest villager to get an Eye, but it’ll cost around seven to ten emeralds.Use the Eye to locate portalWhen thrown, the Eye of Ender will float and travel around twelve blocks in the direction of the nearest Ender Portal. The thrown eye will pass through any kind of block, and leave a trail of purple particles so the player can follow it. However, the Eye has a chance of disappearing after it is thrown, so don’t continually toss it! If thrown within 20 blocks of a portal, it’ll float in the direction of the ground, directly above the portal.Activate the Ender PortalOnce the Ender Portal is located, players might need up to twelve Eyes to actually activate it. The portal is made of twelve End Portal Frame blocks, each of which require an Eye of Ender to activate. Once an Eye is placed into each Frame block, the portal activates, and players can jump through to The End, where the dragon is located.Usually, a return portal isn’t generated, and the only way players can travel back to the regular world is by dying and respawning, killing the Ender Dragon (which spawns a return portal), or by creating a portal to the Nether via hacking the appropriate blocks into the player inventory.Remember, there are only three strongholds on any given map, so there are only three Ender Portals available per world.Building an Ender PortalThe Ender Portal Frame blocks aren’t actually obtainable via in-game methods, but can be obtained via inventory hacking. The only way to destroy a Portal Frame block is to break it in Creative Mode. Unlike Nether portals, destroying a Frame won’t actually deactivate the portal.Should you have the appropriate blocks, you can build an Ender Portal, but you have to be precise. Eleven of the twelve blocks that make up the frame can face any direction, but the twelfth block must face inwards if it is the final block that requires an Eye of Ender for the portal to activate.So, however you decide to travel to The End, you’re going to at least need quite a bit of Eye of Enders, and you’ll need to be sure you’re okay with seeing the Dragon fight through until the end, or dying to respawn. Good luck!last_img read more

Study Assesses Risk of MRI Exams for Patients With Tattoos

first_imgNews | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | February 01, 2019 Study Assesses Risk of MRI Exams for Patients With Tattoos European effort marks first prospective study on risk assessment February 1, 2019 — A new European study concluded that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams pose little risk for people with tattoos, based on data collected from 330 patient scans.  According to Nikolaus Weiskopf, Ph.D., director at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig (MPI CBS), “…the most important questions for us were: Can we conduct our studies with tattooed subjects without hesitation? What restrictions may exist? At the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging, part of Queen Square Institute of Neurology at University College in London, where I started the study in 2011, there were increasing numbers of volunteers with tattoos. At the time, there simply was not enough data to determine the likelihood of tattoo-related side effects arising from MRI examinations.”Weiskopf’s former colleague in London, Martina Callaghan, completed the study after Weiskopf left London to become director at the MPI CBS in Leipzig. “Based on our investigations, we can now state, on the basis of meaningful numbers, that if a tattooed individual is scanned under the conditions tested in the study, the risk of side effects is very small.” the physicist explains.Indeed, millions of people with tattoos are scanned every year in hospitals and research facilities without any side effects. Until now there has not been a systematic prospective study on how safe it is to be scanned in an MRI scanner with a tattoo. Reports of adverse reactions are usually based on individual cases and describe two different reactions. It is possible that the pigments in tattoos can interact with the static magnetic field of the scanner. Why? The tattoo ink can contain pigments that are ferrous and therefore magnetic. The strong magnetic fields involved in the procedure can interact with these small particles, which in turn can lead to a pulling sensation on the tattooed skin.However, it is another potential interaction which may represent, from the experts’ point of view, a far greater risk. Many of the color pigments are also conductive. This is an issue because in MR imaging, high-frequency magnetic fields are used to generate the images by effectively labeling protons. “High-frequency fields usually have a frequency of a few hundred megahertz. That happens to correspond to the resonance lengths of conductive structures similarly sized as tattoos. In this case, the tattoo may absorb much of the energy of the high-frequency field, which would normally be spread out more widely. It can then happen that the tattoo heats up. In the worst case, this can lead to burns”, said Weiskopf.Together with his colleagues at University College in London, he examined 330 study participants before and after the MRI scan and tested a total of 932 tattoos. The team systematically collected information about their participants’ tattoos — how big they were, where they were located and what colors were used. The country of origin was also recorded with most arising in Europe, but also from America, Asia, Africa and Australia. The majority of the ink used was black, but various colors were also registered.”We found that the majority of the participants did not notice any side effects with tattoos,” said Weiskopf. “There was one specific case where the study doctor found that side effects – a tingling sensation on the skin – were related to scanning. However, this unpleasant feeling disappeared within 24 hours without the affected person having required medical treatment.”In order to ensure the participants safety (from potential burns) not just anyone could be scanned for the study — exclusion criteria concerned the size and number of tattoos. For example, a single tattoo was not allowed to exceed 20 centimeters and no more than 5 percent of the body could be covered by tattoos.The MRI scanners used in the study had a static magnetic field strength of three Tesla, as is common in many clinics today. By comparison, the magnetic field of a rather weak 0.5 Tesla MRI model is 10,000 times stronger than the Earth’s magnetic field. These MRI scanners usually have a radiofrequency body coil, which stimulates the proton spins for imaging. The high frequency field of a body coil extends not only over the head, which was scanned in this study, but also the upper body area of the participants and thus on frequently tattooed areas.According to Weiskopf, the results of the study not only provide information on safety guidelines for research, but can also be helpful for clinical environments. The existing recommendations on how to scan people with tattoos are always based on weighing the risk against the actual benefit of diagnosing a disease. While it should be noted that the results are limited to specific configurations and scanner types, this study adds to the positive safety record of MRI.For more information: www.nejm.orgReference1.
