Resource firm planning new NB wells if Tories lift fracking moratorium

first_imgFREDERICTON — A major player in natural gas development in New Brunswick is making plans for new wells if the province’s new Tory government follows through on a pledge to lift a moratorium on fracking.Corridor Resources currently has 32 producing wells in the Sussex area and operates a 50 kilometre pipeline, a gathering system comprising 15 kilometres of pipe, and a natural gas processing facility.The company wants to expand but the previous Liberal government imposed a moratorium in 2014 that prohibits hydraulic fracturing — a process that involves pumping water and chemicals at high pressure to fracture shale rock and release gas.The new Tory government has proposed lifting the moratorium in specific areas, like the Sussex region, if there is public support.In a corporate presentation the company says, if the moratorium is lifted, they would drill five vertical evaluation wells, complete three existing wells, identify “sweet spots,” and drill a second round of up to five horizontal wells.The company says with the impending end of Nova Scotia’s offshore production, natural gas will have to come from outside the Maritimes if the New Brunswick deposit is not further developed.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

LAntarctique était connecté à lAmérique du Nord il y a un milliard

first_imgL’Antarctique était connecté à l’Amérique du Nord il y a un milliard d’annéesIl y a plus d’un milliard d’années, bien avant la dérive des continents, l’Antarctique et l’Amérique du Nord étaient liés. Une équipe internationale de chercheurs en apporte les preuves, confirmant la théorie selon laquelle les continents furent tous réunis, bien avant la Pangée, au sein d’un supercontinent baptisé Rodinia.L’Antarctique était connecté au Texas, il y a 1,1 milliard d’années, affirme une équipe de chercheurs internationale. Dans une étude publiée par la revue Geology, ils expliquent en effet détenir des preuves de cette connexion qui auraient existé bien avant la Pangée, le supercontinent formé il y a 300 millions d’années, de la fin du Carbonifère au début du Jurassique, par presque toutes les terres émergées.À lire aussiLes images d’un incroyable phénomène sous-marin aperçu sous l’Antarctique (Vidéo)Pour faire une telle découverte, les géologues ont analysé des roches prélevées au Texas et en Antarctique, et ont constaté qu’elles présentaient la même composition en isotopes de plomb. Une preuve qui confirme de précédentes études portant sur des échantillons prélevés sur les deux continents et qui présentaient les mêmes propriétés chimiques et géologiques. Cette découverte vient ainsi conforter la théorie selon laquelle un supercontinent aurait existé il y a plus d’un milliard d’années, la Rodinia. Il se serait scindé en huit masses voilà 750 millions d’années. Une dérive qui aurait engendré un ré-assemblement, et la formation de la Pangée.”Les données isotopiques de plomb de cette recherche offrent l’une des preuves les plus convaincantes rassemblant cette partie du puzzle Rodinia” souligne Nick Roberts, un chercheur du British Geological Survey. Staci Loewy, un géochimiste de la California State University, principal auteur de cette étude, s’enthousiasme ainsi : “Je peux me rendre sur la montagne Franklin dans l’ouest du Texas, et me tenir à côté de ce qui était autrefois une partie du manteau de la Terre en Antarctique !”.Le 10 août 2011 à 16:33 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Unsworth pleased with Everton performance

first_imgEverton U-23s manager David Unsworth has revealed his delight after an inexperienced U-23 team battled Brighton & Hove Albion U-23 team to a draw.The Toffees U-23 team played out an eventful 2-2 draw with the young Brighton team in the Premier League International cup opener.Unsworth promoted several players from the Everton U-18s team and they stood toe-to-toe with the high-flying young seagulls who are top of the Premier League 2 table.A penalty from Bassala Sambou gave Everton the lead before two quickfire goals from Ben Barclay and James Tilley turned the game in favour of Brighton.A goal from Ellis Simms who was promoted from the U-18s to the U-23s gave Unsworth’s team a well-deserved point and the manager revealed his delight at his team’s performance.I’m really proud of the players, although when you get in that position, you want to win the game,” he said, according to the club’s official website.Everton still keen on signing Juve’s Moise Kean Obinna Echi – July 28, 2019 Everton are still pushing for the signature of Juventus striker Moise Kean despite the Italian champions insisting they’d only sanction the deal with a…“Brighton played their strongest team tonight, while we gave a chance to some of the players that haven’t been playing.”“We also gave some of the Under-18s who have been playing well the opportunity to step up and produce a performance and they certainly did that.”“I’m delighted for Ellis Simms. He’s a great lad and he’s done a great job tonight. We wanted to give him an opportunity, he has been scoring a lot of goals last season and certainly this season.”“He does the hardest thing in the game, which is putting the ball in the back of the net. Kyle John had half a game and was very good – unfortunately he got a little injury – and Ryan Astley was absolutely magnificent at centre-back.

Col Laurie Hummel Named New Adjutant General for the Alaska National Guard

first_imgOn the 17th floor of the Atwood Building in Anchorage, Walker introduced Retired US Army Col. Laurie Hummel and Retired US Air Force Col. Bob Doehl.At a press conference in downtown Anchorage, Governor Bill Walker introduced the new Adjutant General for the Alaska National Guard. Retired Colonel Laurie Hummel served in Army intelligence for 30 years after graduating from West Point, and is the first woman to lead the Guard.In her time with the Armed Forces, Hummel said, she has seen “walls come down” as equality and opportunity extend further into the military’s diverse ranks. She plans to ensure the Guard follows the same course.“We need to make sure that we have a moral and ethical climate that is worthy of our membership,” Hummel told the room. “we need to make sure that we build a mutual culture of trust. There will be no old boys network, there will be no old girls network.”Hummel’s hire comes after accusations of misconduct within the Alaska Army National Guard led to dismissals and investigations under Governor Sean Parnell’s administration. Hummel and her staff will begin reviewing Guard policies and procedures to prevent sexual assault, harassment, favoritism, and other improprieties documented in a report by the Office of Complex Investigations.A group of bills filed this session by Democratic legislators aim to modify protocols for reporting offenses within the guard and update the uniform code of military justice. Governor Walker’s office will help that effort as a special investigator continues looking into years of allegations.“Those wrong-doers will be brought to justice,” Walker said, “I’ll just leave it at that.”Hummel also assumes the role as Commissioner of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. Her deputy will be retired Air Force Colonel Bob Doehl, who left the Air National Guard in 2012, and earlier worked as an attorney within the Department of Law.In November Hummel ran an unsuccessful campaign for the Northeast Anchorage seat in the state house.last_img read more

Con Banega Crorepati

first_imgIt is not everyday that you see Dilliwallahs jostle to take a look at books. And buy them by the dozen. The Book Fair has been going mostly empty. But if you had been going to Dilli Haat over the last weekend, you would see how the place has completely transformed. All thanks to the Third Annual Comic Con. Every Delhiite worth his Diamond Comics came along. If not to buy books, to browse through them. If not to browse, then pick up merchandise. And if for nothing else, then to get themselves clicked with the quirky banners and with men and women who decided to give themselves a fun makeover. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Of course Comic Con is about comics. But it is as much about the merchandise, some of which you will get only at Comic Con which makes them all the more attractive for the funk-loving youngsters. And funky they all are. Superkudi, that hit theme of the last edition of Comic Con, has given way to Supermummy this year. So apart from banners, you could also pick up Supermummy tees, posters, wall clocks, cushions and even mugs. The ‘Wonder Bai’, or the ubiquitous Indian maid, was another favourite. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixBut what most people were seen jostling for (and some even went back disappointed since most stalls had run out of sizes) were the Superman and Batman tees. While some were the more regular ones, there were others which had been fun slogans. The Bangalore-based Hysteria, was seen doing brisk business with their badges, posters, tees, art prints and more. So much so, that you actually had to queue up to see their poster catalogue. While the now well-known Chumbak (every girl worth her auto raja boxers have heard of them) has a stall, we found the lesser known ones doing brisk business. The merchandise was similar — tees, mugs, quirky posters, calendars and even toys of comic characters — but each added their own quirky take to them. Want to voice an opinion? Wear it on the tee. That was the USP of the Wear Your Opinion stall. A stall which stocked Harry Potter merchandise, was also a crowd favourite.last_img read more

Acting up a perfect wedding

first_imgThus they call it the laddu either already savoured or still to be relished. Based around a similar idea, the play titled Perfect Wedding teaches one what not to do on his/her wedding day. It imparts knowledge of all the dos and donts for your wedding day.Presented by Saanjha Sapnaa and directed by Dushyant Babbar, the play is a romantic comedy based on an original script. The plot goes like- A man wakes up on his wedding morning in the hotel’s bridal suite with a naked woman he doesn’t know. Chaos ensues and a touching love story too. It is full of snappy dialogues, slapstick humor and blurry maze of plot twists which turn into a cheery evening of laughs and good feeling. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting”The play follows an error of comedy concept. Where in, the couple who was brought together to get married eventually get married to different people. It took me almost a month to conceptualise and execute the play as one of the major challenge was to find good and steady actors,’ rues Dushyant.’The one hour 20 minutes long play constitutes of playing with live properties where in the dimensions of the room set up on the stage is changed via connecting doors.

How to Drive Conversions Without Relying on Intrusive PopOvers

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Conversions and growth. Growth and conversions. They make the business world go round.So how much do you love (and by love, I mean hate) pop-over ads?The paradox is that they’re incredibly effective at converting, but people loathe them.The good: Pop-ups (which open a new browser window) and pop-overs (float above the content but do not open a new window) have a click-through rate near two percent, which is higher than other most other methods. Entrepreneur got 86 percent more subscribers when trying out a pop-over opt-in form. Popup Domination users boasted conversion increases between 150 percent (wow) and 1100 percent (WOW) when it first debuted.Marketing firm Fresh Relevance added a popover form on every page after a 30-second delay, resulting in 11 times as many sign-ups as they got from the old form in the footer while doubling the numbers of sign-ups from the old form, too!The bad: People — your users and customers — despise them. A lot. Beth Hayden at Copyblogger actually received hate mail when she tried them on her own site. Most studies have found 90 to 95 percent of people claim to hate them with a fiery intensity.Tools like AdBlock Plus — downloaded over 500 million times — make pop-ups very easy to control and eliminate.They’re the second most detested type of ad after telemarketers. 64 percent of respondents in a recent survey said they use blockers because pop-ups are annoying and intrusive.Annoying. Intrusive. Not exactly the feelings you want to inspire in your visitors.You have two choices: don’t use them at all, or make them less irritating. Here are a few alternative suggestions:Option A: Use a traditional inline formYes, pop-over adds are effective, but they’re not the only game in town. For example, you can use a traditional inline (directly on the page) form in either the header, footer, or sidebar. It may not convert as much, but it’s much less annoying and impossible to block.Create and share fantastic content on a consistent basis. Provide a wonderful product or service. If your product is great, people will convert without the pop-over.Include an inline opt-in after blog posts and articles. If what you’re providing is valuable, they’ll sign up.Personalize your messaging and segment your audience.A/B test. Then A/B test again.  Improve your CTA with stronger copy.Upgrade your sign-up form with personality and social proof.Related: 22 Qualities That Make a Great LeaderOption B: Use an app or online toolHere are some of the tools I’d reccomend:Scroll Box is a slide form that appears from any corner after reading X percent of a page. It’s smaller than a traditional pop-over, doesn’t obscure (as much of) the page, and converts at 0.94 percent. Also try the Scroll Triggered Box. Hubspot found a 192 percent higher CTR and 27 percent more submissions using a slide-in form when compared to a static CTA.Smart Bar can either sit at the top of a page (static), appear only when scrolling up after scrolling down (smart), or stay with reader as they move down (sticky). Businesses use it as a less invasive opt-in or simple reminder. It converts at only 0.25 percent, though. Also try the Hello Bar.Welcome Mat is a full-screen CTA that launches immediately as a visitor lands on a page (so although it’s similar, it’s not a true pop-over. It doesn’t interrupt their experience). It can even be used as a landing page. It has a 1.76 percent conversion rate according to SumoMe. Also try: OptinMonster’s Fullscreen.Related: 11 Ways to Make Money While You SleepOption C: Use the pop-over strategicallyI’ll be the first to admit that the allure of the pop-over is hard to resist. Many websites report sales increases of up to 40 percent after implementing them. The trick is to compare the upswing in sales and conversions with any resulting reduction in subscriptions, higher bounce rates or angry hate mail. Is it really worth it?If you absolutely must use a pop-over, though, use them in as unintrusive and innocuous a way as possible, be prepared for possible customer blowback and remember these helpful hints:Use a cookie or session tag to make sure people only see it once.No means no. Respect someone’s decision to close it. Don’t have another pop-over asking whether they’re sure. They’re sure.A/B test everything: copy, layout, image, color.Match the style and theme of your site.Make the close button easy to see and use.Avoid condescending options like “No thanks, I already know everything”.Keep the copy short, action-oriented and positive.The ideal formula? Headline, 2-3 benefits, an image, and a strong CTA.Acknowledge and thank those who opt in.Related: How to Start a Business With (Almost) No MoneyOption D: Use a delayed pop-overGive your users a little bit of time. Delay your pop-over to coincide with:X number of page views. If someone has read two or three pages already, they’re interested in you.End of a post. The pop-over is triggered as they hit the bottom of the page.X number of seconds or minutes spent on page. For example, you could use a pop-over containing a valuable coupon within seconds of opening the site. It’s quick and viewed as helpful to potential shoppers.Exit intent. Pop-overs can be triggered when someone goes to exit or close the page.Just be aware that many users consider exit pop-overs a little pathetic. They see websites that use them as less confident, less polished, and less professional. It’s considered a needy design pattern, and no one likes the needy friend, right?Pop-overs are definitely a catch-22. Some of the highest conversion rates out there, but terrible street cred. 70 percent of people say they have a lower opinion of businesses who use them.Tread lightly. 6 min read April 10, 2017 Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible.

Calgary Airport receives 2800 complaints – from two people

first_imgCalgary Airport receives 2,800 complaints – from two people Share CALGARY — Some people have a lot of time on their hands. That seems to be the case with two Calgarians sent into a tizzy over noise levels at Calgary International Airport, voicing their dissatisfaction up to four times a day.According to the Calgary Airport Authority, two people have been the source of 46% of all noise complaints for the airport. That’s 2,800 complaints made from two people alone.According to CBC News Calgary, Bob Sartor, CEO of the Calgary Airport Authority, told city council that overall noise complaints were down more than one-third from the previous year.“There are certain people that the only thing that will satisfy them is a shut down of an airport that employs 48,000 people directly and indirectly and generates almost $8.3 billion of GDP for the city,” said Sartor. “There are some constituencies with which we will never win.”Sartor admitted there were mistakes made during the construction of the new tarmac in 2014. Even so, he said, new flight paths over industrial areas have forced planes to fly higher and straighter, effectively reducing the noise.More news:  Hotel charges Bollywood star $8.50 for two bananas and the Internet has thoughts“And in fact, our complaints are down 39% year over year and if we were to back out the individuals who complain almost four times a day, they’d be down materially,” he said. << Previous PostNext Post >> Thursday, March 23, 2017 center_img Posted by Tags: Airports, Calgary, LOL Travelweek Group last_img read more

Ellie Mae Offers New Competitive Edge to Lenders

first_img March 26, 2018 486 Views Ellie Mae encompass data connect Mortgage Lenders 2018-03-26 Staff Writer in Headlines, journal, News, Servicing Ellie Mae, a cloud-based platform provider for the mortgage finance industry, announced Encompass Data Connect, their newest digital mortgage solution in the Connection suite. This solution is designed to “help mortgage lenders make smarter decisions faster using real-time data.” The solution is currently limited in availability and will be available to all lenders in the second quarter of 2018.The solution allows lenders real-time access to their standard and custom loan data fields, allowing them the opportunity to make timely, data-driven decisions in efforts to increase the velocity, efficiency, and effectiveness of their business operations, and realize any significant competitive advantage. Additionally, the Encompass Data Connect solution gives lenders secure access to their cloud-based, encrypted data at any time and from anywhere. This access allows full maximization of the existing reporting and business intelligence, as well as gaining actionable data insights faster to create innovative business opportunities and drive profitability. Encompass Data Connect leverages Amazon Web Services and their proven cloud services expertise to reduce labor costs and simplify the process of data management. In addition to near real-time data access, this solution gives lenders a standard query interface for easier data access and provides high performance by decoupling data from the solution so that production systems are not impacted. “Prior to the launch of Encompass Data Connect, lenders would spend significant time orchestrating data synchronization between their production system and their data warehouse. And without having the ability to bring all data elements together, from Encompass and other critical data sources, lenders didn’t have the full and complete information available in a single repository to better inform business decisions,” said Joe Tyrrell, EVP of Corporate Strategy. “With Encompass Data Connect, our lenders now have purview to all of their own data in near real-time, allowing them to subscribe to data change events occurring in their production system so their data strategies are informed by the most current information. With Encompass Data Connect they can improve efficiencies across their organization and be even better informed.”The solution is fully connected to give lenders one system of record for loan data, providing an all-in-one solution for compliance, quality, and efficiency at every loan stage. Ellie Mae’s connect solutions are built on the Encompass NG Lending Platform, which utilizes API’s to help improve visibility and collaboration between loan officers, homebuyers, third-party organizers, and developers. center_img Ellie Mae Offers New Competitive Edge to Lenders Sharelast_img read more

Game Over Movie Review Taapsee Pannu and Fantastic Storytelling Techniques Keep You

first_imgGame OverCast: Taapsee Pannu, Vinodhini VaidyanathanDirector: Ashwin Saravanan Ashwin Saravanan’s, Game Over, is actually a Telugu film dubbed in Hindi. It is one of those films that gets you on the edge of the seat almost immediately as it starts.The film opens with a chilling murder wherein a young girl Amrita’s (Sanchana Natrajan) life is brutally snuffed out, setting the tone for what is to follow. Quite evidently there is a criminal on the loose, out on a killing spree. The swiftness with which the screenplay establishes the presence of an almost invisible culprit lurking around is remarkable. As a member of the audience you are left with no choice but to keenly anticipate about what’s going to happen next. But, this is not a whodunit. To the contrary, Game Over, lives up to its name– akin to video games the story is all about surviving the deadly killers.Director Ashwin Saravanan along with his co-writer Kaavya Ramkumar sets up the story ingeniously- peeling layer after layer. Or perhaps, level after level. From the moment we set our eyes on Sapna’s (Taapsee Pannu) almost picture perfect life, there is a sinking feeling that things are likely to go horribly wrong. However, to the writers’ credit, the story does not follow the predictable path. It unravels rapidly layer upon layer, revealing startling aspects to Sapna and her cloistered life. What seems idyllic begins to crumble as the plot swiftly thickens.Taapsee Pannu who is turning out to be an actress of many shades takes on the challenge gamely. With an inspired performance in a film that does not allow you the luxury of excessive cinematic expansiveness, Taapsee handles Sapna’s character extremely well. Giving her able company is Vinodhini Vaidyanathan as Kalamma, playing the perfect foil to Taapsee’s on-the-edge Sapna. The two keep you engrossed right till the very end.Pretty early on, you can see that this is a concept film. Sapna is an avid gamer and her life, with a little intervention from the deceased Amita, soon begins to resemble a game with different levels of difficulty. The film then unspools a narrative technique of repeating the same situation as it happens typically in a game. This format of revisiting the same incidents again and again with varying outcomes has been done a few times in Hollywood -from Groundhog Day to Run Lola Run to the recent web series Russian Doll. I won’t give away too many details of the story so as not to kill the surprise for you but employing this narrative technique in Game Over is an experiment to be welcomed. The downside is that a repetition of the events does come in the way of the high tension suspense built up in the early part. A pity.One cannot help but marvel at how well the younger South-Indian film-makers have begun to combine Indian concepts with western ones. Game Over with its paranormal-meets-noir is a good example. Hindi cinema which has struggled to combine science and fantasy with mainstream stories is smart in taking a leaf from their book (Anurag Kashyap is the presenter of the Hindi version of Game Over).Regardless of the box-office collection for the Hindi version of Game Over, the film is worth a watch not merely for entertainment but for its new-age cinematic virtues.Rating: 3.5/5Follow @News18Movies for more Ashwin SaravananGame Overmovie reviewrating First Published: June 14, 2019, 10:37 AM ISTlast_img read more
