CALGARY – The Calgary Stampede has kicked off with a parade through the city’s downtown under a bright blue sky.Mayor Naheed Nenshi says this year’s event is special because the city is emerging from a rough couple of years.The downturn in oil prices has put tens of thousands of people out of work, but Nenshi says things are looking up.He says while there’s optimism, it isn’t unbridled and there is some uncertainty.The parade marshals this year are the seven chiefs of the Treaty 7 First Nations in southern Alberta.Chief Joe Weasel Child of the Siksika Nation east of Calgary says it’s one of the greatest honours he’s ever had and a dream come true.

8 September 2008The top United Nations envoy to Cyprus is holding talks today in Athens with senior Greek Government officials as part of the UN’s efforts to support recently launched negotiations aimed at reunifying the Mediterranean island. Alexander Downer, the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on Cyprus, met with Prime Minister Kostas Karamanlis and Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis, UN spokesperson Michele Montas told journalists.Mr. Downer will visit Ankara on Wednesday for scheduled talks with Turkish President Abdullah Gül, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Foreign Minister Ali Babacan, before returning to Cyprus on Thursday to attend the first substantive meeting between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot leaders as part of their full-fledged negotiations.Last week in Nicosia, Greek Cypriot leader Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat formally launched the negotiations, designed to produce a comprehensive settlement to the long-running Cyprus problem.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, in a message to the launch, called the negotiations a historic step and lauded Mr. Christofias and Mr. Talat “for their seriousness of purpose, sense of compromise and commitment to seeing the peace process through to a successful conclusion.”Today he spoke by telephone with the two leaders to congratulate them personally, and he also spoke with Mr. Downer to discuss the latest developments.In May, Mr. Christofias and Mr. Talat committed themselves in a statement to working towards “a bicommunal, bizonal federation with political equality, as defined by relevant Security Council resolutions.”The partnership will comprise a Federal Government with a single international personality, along with a Turkish Cypriot Constituent State and a Greek Cypriot Constituent State, which will be of equal status.The UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) has been in place on the island since 1964 after the outbreak of intercommunal violence. It is tasked with preventing a recurrence of fighting, contributing to a return to normal conditions and the maintenance of law and order.
When Feb. 22 rolls around, the Brock community is being asked to think pink.Pink T-Shirt Day will be celebrated on campus next Wednesday in support of the Bullying Stops Here campaign.The University is encouraging people to wear their favourite shade of the rosy colour in an effort to show that bullying will not be tolerated.Brock Health Management and Wellness Manager Kathryn Walker said the day is meant to promote kindness among students, staff and faculty, while also taking a stand against bullying.The goal, she said, is to “spread the message that Brock is a safe and welcoming environment and that showing kindness to all is part of our core values as a higher education facility and as a workplace.”Pink T-Shirt Day has been making waves across the country since it began in Nova Scotia in 2007.For more information, visit www.pinkshirtday.ca.

Those present at the meeting included artisans, dance and drama performers and Junkanoo leaders. Pintard said that the creative industries is the fastest-growing sector in most countries and The Bahamas was behind in this industry. He said: “Those are the areas that are rapidly growing, multi, trillion dollar industries around the world. The Bahamas is one of those developing countries that have not yet gotten the memo. So, we have to change that.”He encouraged cultural practitioners to legally register their organizations and pledged government’s assistance with this process. “Half-way for us means that we are prepared to bring in house two attorneys who will sit in a room with those of you who have paper work completed to assist you in getting incorporated,” he added.Saying that it is important to monetize certain aspects of culture and talent, Pintard also told attendees that registration would open doors to them for international funding. “This will dramatically drive your cost down. Our goal is to make sure that all of you are properly registered, which will open up the doors for you to go out there and apply for funding for your product or your organization. Being registered will allow you to seek funding from overseas as well.” Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp
Two months after Woodland opened its doors to recreational marijuana growers and processors, Mayor Grover Laseke rejected the city’s first viable applicant for a pot business license. In December, the Woodland City Council voted 5-1 to allow growing and processing in a small industrial sector of the city west of the railroad tracks. Soon after, Gregory Bowyer, from Ridgefield, applied to start his own business in the city as a Tier 1 producer and processer.The state allowed the city to intervene in the approval process, and though Laseke said Bowyer’s business would meet location and zoning rules, he sent Bowyer a letter turning down the proposal. The reason: Woodland’s municipal code prohibits the city from issuing business licenses for anything that violates federal, state or city law, Laseke said. “I discussed this with the City Council in one of our workshops, so they’re aware that I was going to deny this business license,” he said.Bowyer said he was shocked by the decision.“Originally, they had told us that this wasn’t going to be an issue, and then I guess their city attorney changed their mind,” he said. “Nobody’s going to jail. It’s a business license like any other.”
This graph shows the probability of 10-minute price variations during 1984-1995. The significant increase in 1987 resulted in black Monday, and the increase in 1990 did not result in a crash, likely because of the influence of the Iraq-Kuwait and Gulf wars causing sluggish stock activity.

Nobody knows what causes the giant drops that result in market crashes, except that crashes involve a variety of factors. Explore further New study: How much do climate fluctuations matter for global crop yields? “If the same characteristics can be observed in other stock indices, our approach may be applicable to quantitative risk evaluation,” the scientists reported. Does an increasing probability of price fluctuations necessarily mean a crash will occur? Not at all, since even the most statistically promising analysis cannot account for external factors. For example, the team observed extreme price fluctuations in log returns before 1990. However, because the Iraqi attack on Kuwait in August 1990 and the Gulf War in 1991 led to declining stock prices and action, the internal dynamics of the market underwent a radical change and a phase transition and critical point did not occur.Citation: Kiyono, Ken, Struzik, Zbigniew R., and Yamamoto, Yoshiharu. Criticality and Phase Transition in Stock-Price Fluctuations. Physical Review Letters. 96, 068701 (2006)By Lisa Zyga, Copyright 2006 PhysOrg.com On Monday, October 19, 1987 – infamously known as “black Monday” – the Dow fell 508 points, or 22.9%, marking the largest crash in history. Using an analytical approach similar to the one applied to explore heart rate, physicists have discovered some unusual events preceding the crash. These findings may help economists in risk analysis and in predicting inevitable future crashes. While analyzing stock-price fluctuations based on critical dynamics and phase transitions, physicists from the University of Tokyo (Kiyono et al.) have observed some surprising behavior preceding market crashes. During the year before black Monday, the team found that the probability of large price fluctuations increased unexpectedly (“non-Gaussian” behavior), as if approaching a critical point signifying a major change. At the critical point – or day of the crash – an abrupt phase transition did indeed occur as the probability model changed from being scale dependent to scale invariant. Scale invariance, which in this case meant that the prices no longer depended on the time scale, is characteristic behavior observed at a critical point.“Because the probability of the occurrence of extremely large fluctuations shows a sharp increase before black Monday…our observations suggest that, through the internal dynamics, the system gradually approaches a critical point where inherent, multi-scale fluctuations are likely to result in a crash,” said the scientists in a study published in a recent Physical Review Letters. This “critical” model builds on the idea that the volatility, or variation, of price changes can quantitatively measure how much the market may fluctuate. In fact, volatility – not actual price – is the key input in Black and Scholes’ “option pricing” model on price variation over time, developed in 1973 and highly influential in financial markets.However, volatility alone could not explain the occurrence of large price fluctuations found by Kiyono et al. The team also studied price changes on a short (10-minute) time scale, and discovered a probability of large fluctuations on this scale, as well. This similarity of fluctuations on different time scales resembles the behavior of earthquakes and heartbeats, which are also scale invariant. The physicists think that the small-scale stock price fluctuations may have caused highly clustered behavior of individual traders, which then grew rapidly through internal interactions in the stock market.

The iPad Pro’s got slightly thicker bezels, but not so much that it looks antiquated. The front-facing cameras inside the Tab S4 enable biometric logins, while the iPad Pro’s home button offers Touch ID authentication.Otherwise, these tablets are pretty similar. The biggest aesthetic difference is that the iPad Pro’s got a brushed-aluminum back, while the Tab S4’s back panel is made of glass.MORE: Best Apple LaptopsThe iPad Pro (9.8 x 6.8 x 0.24 inches) is slightly thinner than the Galaxy Tab S4 (9.8 x 6.5 x 0.28 inches), though Samsung’s tablet is narrower. Both slates weigh 1.1 pounds.Winner: TieDisplayWhen it comes to their screens, the Tab S4 and iPad Pro differ in the ways we always expect from Samsung and Apple devices. While watching a trailer for The Meg, we noticed stronger color from the Tab S4, with oceans looking bluer, a glowing sphere emitting more-intense light and clothing rendering in hues that popped off the screen.This created a spike in contrast and loss of detail, however, as a character’s hair and Jason Statham’s face appeared darker on the Tab S4 than on the iPad Pro. Fortunately, the Tab S4 gives you multiple screen modes, so we remedied this issue by switching from the default screen setting (Adaptive Display) to AMOLED cinema mode, which brought the colors back to realistic tones and restored detail.According to our colorimeter, the Tab S4 produces an amazing 219 percent of the sRGB gamut, a rating that is high above the 122 percent we found in the iPad Pro. The Galaxy Tab S4 emits up to 463 nits of brightness, which is slightly dimmer than the 477 nits from the iPad Pro.Both slates offer impressive viewing angles, with colors staying strong at 80 degrees to the left and right.Winner: Tab S4AudioWhen I listened to music and podcasts on each tablet side by side, the winner was a no-brainer (literally). The DJ Khaled song “No Brainer,” for example, sounded fuller and stronger on the iPad Pro, which offered a wider soundstage, allowing for stronger vocals and harder bass. On the Tab S4, the same song came out flatter. Total55 X Weight1.1 pounds1.1 pounds StylusX Samsung is finally catching up to Apple in the tablet arena. Not only is the Tab S4’s DeX mode better for productivity, but the included S Pen also gives you more flexibility out of the box.But if you want the longest battery life, the speediest stylus and the strongest overall performance, the iPad Pro is the tablet for you.

Testing both the iPad Pro’s Smart Keyboard ($159) and the Tab S4’s Book Cover Keyboard ($150) was an exercise in frustration, as my fingers flailed away at the too-soft keys.I hit similar rates with the two keyboards on the 10fastfingers typing test, with 63 words per minute (and 98.4 percent accuracy) on the iPad Pro and 64 words per minute (with 92.4 percent accuracy) on the Tab S4.MORE: Kids Tablets to Buy (or Avoid)The iPad Pro’s keyboard is the worst of the two, as it presents users with fabric-covered keys that don’t click as much as they move down. The Tab S4’s keyboard isn’t much better, with its flimsy-feeling keys, but at least those have 0.7mm of vertical travel, which is 20 percent more than the 0.5mm in the iPad Pro keys.Winner: Galaxy Tab S4StylusTo compare the iPad Pro’s Apple Pencil (sold separately; $100) and the Tab S4’s S Pen (included), I asked Laptop Mag Deputy Director of Photography Jef Castro to draw with both styli in Adobe Photoshop Sketch. When I asked for his feedback, he said, “Well, the S Pen’s just a hair slower than the Apple Pencil, which draws more naturally and fluidly.”Physically, Jef said, the styli were equals in terms of how they felt in his hand and the sense of feedback they gave when pressed against each tablet’s glass screen.Winner: iPad ProPerformanceApple’s iPad Pro may be over a year old, but it’s not slowing down. The iPad Pro’s A10X Fusion CPU with 4GB of RAM holds up against modern competition, repeatedly offering more speed than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU with 4GB of RAM in the Tab S4.I saw no stutter when splitting either tablet’s screen between a 1080p YouTube video and 12 web browser tabs, and both ran Fortnite at relatively smooth rates.Synthetic testing gave a nod to the iPad Pro, which earned a 9,233 on the Geekbench 4 general performance test, scoring much higher than the Tab S4 and its 6,592. The iPad Pro also won in the 3DMark Sling Shot Extreme graphics benchmark test, in which it posted a score of 4299, beating the Tab S4’s 3481. MORE: 100+ Great iOS Games for iPhones and iPadsThe iPad Pro also won our video test, transcoding a 4K video to 1080p in 38 seconds, a small fraction of the 2:50 time from the Tab S4 (which required Adobe Premiere Clip to be side loaded).Winner: iPad ProDesktop productivityThe iPad Pro and the Tab S4 both aim to make the tablet a more-productive device, but which is closer to replacing your laptop? The biggest difference between the two is the maximum number of simultaneous open windows they allow; the iPad Pro hits a ceiling at three, with two apps in split-view and a third in slide over. The Tab S4’s DeX mode, though, has a higher cap, allowing up to 20 windows open at once (though it could use a snap-to-corner functionality).Admittedly, both the iPad Pro and the Tab S4 are limited by their operating systems, as iOS and Android will reset an app if it lingers in the background for too long.Winner: Tab S4Battery lifeThe Tab S4 lasts a decent amount of time on a charge, but the iPad Pro made it even longer. The Laptop Mag Battery Test (web surfing at 150 nits) took 9 hours and 34 minutes to drain the Tab S4 of its charge, while the iPad Pro posted a time of 13 hours and 55 minutes.Winner: iPad ProValueThese tablets provide pretty similar features, but one stands out with its perks. The Tab S4 and iPad Pro start at the same $649 and include the same amount of storage (64GB) and memory (4GB). But while Samsung throws in its S Pen for free, Apple will charge you an extra $100 for its Pencil stylus. Also, the 256GB version of the Tab S4 costs $749, which is $50 cheaper than the $799 256GB iPad Pro.Winner: Tab S4Overall Winner: It’s a tie!

Source = Likuliku Lagoon Resort – National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World Likuliku Lagoon Resort (Photo Credit: Samantha Muspratt)Another Fiji first for Likuliku Lagoon ResortFiji’s unique resort joins National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World.Fijian owned and multi-award-winning Likuliku Lagoon Resort, is delighted to announce that they have been accepted as a National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World (NGULW) – the first and only one in Fiji and one of only two in the Pacific.When Likuliku Lagoon Resort opened in 2007, it blazed a trail for Fiji with the country’s first and only over-water bures/bungalows and immediately set new benchmarks for cuisine and service. In the 11 years since, the Resort has garnered an enviable reputation for excellence whilst continuing to set more benchmarks for not only service and experiences but in environmental practices. National Geographic Unique Lodges has exacting and uncompromising standards, and to be accepted into their portfolio of Lodges is a testament to the excellence that Likuliku has achieved. And, like all of the exclusive Unique Lodges of the World, Likuliku chooses to tread lightly – celebrating nature rather than conquering it, supporting cultural heritage and engagement with local communities, in addition to offering an authentic, quintessential Fijian experience in pristine ocean and wilderness surroundings.“We are honoured that Likuliku Lagoon Resort has been selected to join this extraordinary and prestigious collection of boutique accommodation around the world” says Steve Anstey, Ahura Resorts, Group General Manager. “Becoming a member of the National Geographic Unique Lodges collection – with its esteemed global reputation in hospitality and conservation and cultural experiences, was a natural fit and step forward for us.”Steve continues, “We have always been environmentally focused as one needs to be when building and operating in pristine locations. During construction, extraordinary care and attention was taken to protect the natural resources including our reef and forest areas which were always intended to be a focal point of the Likuliku experience. Programs based on marine flora and fauna including turtle conservation, coral and clam planting, and consultation with the local community to install marine protection areas on reefs in order improve fish stocks, have been in place since we opened”.Likuliku’s environmental initiatives took a dramatic turn in 2010 when a single Fiji Crested Iguana “Brachylophus Vitiensis” was found at Likuliku. The Fiji Crested Iguana is classified as Critically Endangered (CR) on the IUCN Red List 2007 (1), and listed on Appendix I of CITES and was thought to be extinct on the island of Malolo as there had not been any sightings for over 30 years. Like most animals on the brink of extinction, the demise of the Fiji Iguana has been largely due to the destruction of their natural habitat, which in the case of the Fiji Crested Iguana, is Dry Forest. Through urbanisation and development, the complex and diverse Dry Forest ecosystem has been radically diminished and along with the introduction of non-native animals – including rats, cats, mongoose and goats – which consume either the Iguanas or compete for their food sources, the Iguanas have over time simply disappeared.Dry Forest once covered most of the islands in the Mamanuca Group, yet today only one percent of this ecosystem remains in the country, making it one of the most endangered on the planet. On Malolo Levu Island only 3 percent of Dry Forest remains. Since Dry Forests are crucial to the survival of the Fiji Crested Iguana and other wildlife, Ahura Resorts embarked on a major regeneration and restoration program. It established the first Dry Forest Nursery in Fiji on the island at Likuliku and using a scientific method, focused on growing 12 particular species that, once planted in a 10m x 10m grid, would provide a prototype Dry Forest suitable for Crested Iguana habitation.Over a period of 4 years, this reforestation initiative in combination with a controlled program of invasive species eradication – particularly cats and rats, started to bare fruit. Leading up to this time, the Iguanas found were serendipitous. Suddenly they were visible in the wild but still in low numbers. This enabled the start of a catch, tag and release program whereby Iguana activity could be tracked and monitored in the wild. In addition, Likuliku was granted a permit to hold and breed Crested Iguanas in captivity and today cares for 4 breeding pairs. Likuliku is the only facility in the world to hatch Iguana eggs in captivity under natural conditions ie not in an egg incubator.Likuliku’s Fijian owner, Tony Whitton adds, “To become part of this extraordinary and internationally renowned worldwide network and being associated with the significantly historical organisation that is National Geographic, is a culmination of all that has been achieved for our young resort company and the product that is Likuliku Lagoon Resort. This a global stage like no other, and to be the first and only in Fiji is a credit to the Ahura Team on creating a product worthy of this type of attention and inclusion”.Guests who book their experiences at the Likuliku Lagoon Resort through National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World www.nationalgeographiclodges.com will also enjoy exclusive, specially-designed eco experiences.(1) IUCN Red List: The International Union for Conservation of Nature ( IUC) List of Threatened Species™ is widely recognized as the most comprehensive, objective global approach for evaluating the conservation status of plant and animal species.https://www.nationalgeographiclodges.com/lodges/australia-and-pacific/likuliku-lagoon-resort/about/About Ahura ResortsAhura was an ancient god of creations who symbolised life, kindness, equality, care of the environment, charity, loyalty and faithfulness to settlement, tribe and county.
