Dense Smoke Advisory Issued For Sterling Seward Highway

first_imgSmoke from the Swan Lake fire will reduce visibilities to one quarter mile or less at times, according to the advisory. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享8/21/19 – 6:00am Sean Baines with the National Weather Service: “Smoke will likely be dense along the highway along Cooper Landing to Sterling along the highway. Not only should be people driving be careful, but those with respiratory problems may have difficulty breathing when outside and are advised to use caution.” In addition, the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Division of Air Quality has issued an Air Quality Advisory that includes the Kenai Peninsula due to wildfire smoke from the Swan Lake fire. The National Weather Service in Anchorage has issued a Dense Smoke Advisory, which is in effect until 10pm Wednesday. The advisory stretches from the Sterling and Seward Highway junction southward to Seward.center_img Generally, worse conditions occur overnight and during the early morning hours, as the atmosphere cools and brings smoke to the surface. During the day, surface heating will generally cause the smoke to lift, temporarily improving air quality, according to the release. A dense smoke advisory means fires will create widespread smoke, limiting visibilities. If driving, slow down, use your headlights, and leave plenty of distance ahead of you in case a sudden stop is needed. Air quality monitors have been set up near the fire area.

Toilets sinks and showers Smart water is here

first_img Amazon Google CNET Smart Home $79 • Aug 30 • iRobot Roomba S9 Plus vs. Neato Botvac D7 Connected By now, there are connected products for nearly every corner of your smart home. Security, lighting, cooking, cleaning and entertainment are all voice-enabled, if you’re willing to spend the money and swap out your dumb systems. Smart plumbing isn’t any different. There’s a steady stream of products that aim to smarten your water supply from all angles, but which ones are worth it? Are they all luxurious add-ons or ways to truly improve your home’s efficiency and convenience? It might depend on the category. Let’s take a look at where smart plumbing products might show up in your home and what they offer. KitchenSmart water in the kitchen is centered around the kitchen sink. Kohler and Delta both offer smart faucets that connect to Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for voice commands. Kohler’s Sensate Faucet comes with voice commands and Delta’s VoiceIQ Module smartens up compatible Touch2O faucets.You can do things like ask your faucet to dispense a specific amount of water or turn the faucet on or off. With both models, you’ll need an always-on power supply and you’ll need to put the handle in the “On” position and then turn off the water with motion sensing in order to enable voice commands. Both models are expensive, too.   The Kohler Sensate faucet with voice commands works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.  Chris Monroe/CNET Once you’ve installed your faucet and connected it to your voice assistant, there are some handy functions. You can ask for 12 ounces of water, ask your voice assistant to turn the faucet on or in Delta’s case, ask it to heat up your water.These faucets aren’t perfect, though. You’ll need to use a clunky command like “Hey, Google, ask Kohler to dispense 8 ounces of water,” and the custom commands for things like “fill spaghetti pot” can be tricky to get just right. However, if you’re already in the market for a high-end Delta or Kohler faucet, getting a model with these smarts won’t add much, if any, extra cost. image001Phyn’s new Smart Water Assistant attaches to the water lines beneath your sink.  Phyn There are other options for monitoring water in your kitchen. Phyn’s latest water monitor, the $299 Phyn Smart Water Assistant, attaches to the hot/cold water lines under your sink and doesn’t require professional installation. It can let you know if you pipes are beginning to freeze, monitor your home’s water pressure and show your water consumption all through the Phyn app on your mobile device. We haven’t tested this system yet, but it seems to toe the line between leak detector and whole-home water monitor. BathroomSmartening the water in your bathroom can take several forms. Let’s start with shower systems. A smart shower could mean an entire system or just a connected shower head. Prices range from less than $100 to several thousands.The U by Moen Smart Shower system has a $1,225 MSRP and can create profiles for individuals in your household with specifics for temperature. It can warm up your shower, then pause the water flow until you’re ready to step inside. That’s one way to potentially reduce your water consumption, but installation does require a professional and that high price tag doesn’t include any special shower heads or premium hardware, only the thermostatic digital shower valve and control panel. ubymoensmartshower-12.jpg Chris Monroe/CNET Kohler has a similar DTV+ shower system that works with the Kohler Konnect app. You can create presets for sound, water, steam and special lighting if you have that installed. Smart commands with Kohler’s shower also work with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.Smart showers like these are largely luxurious and not focused on water savings. While there are some economical aspects, your’e paying mostly for the convenience of getting your shower up and running at the sound of your voice. hydraoshowerheads-1.jpgFrench company Smart and Blue’s Hydrao range of showerheads are kitted out with LED lights that change color, from green to blue to purple to red, based on how long you’ve been showering.Of course, there are more affordable ways to smarten your shower, like Kickstarter’s Livin shower head, a gadget that monitors water consumption and allows you to press a button that pauses water flow.That one hasn’t hit retail yet, but you can buy models under $70 from WaterHawk and DreamSpa with integrated LEDs that change colors corresponding to temperature. The Hydrao Smart Shower System is powered entirely by the water flowing through it and lights up with different colors to indicate how much water you’ve used. These easy-to-install, affordable alternatives are a great way to get into smart showering. kohler-smart-lab-18Kohler’s Numi Smart toilet works with the Kohler Konnect app.  Tyler Lizenby/CNET Then, there are toilets. Yes, smart toilets are a thing. Not only does Kohler make a smart toilet, but it’s made multiple versions. The newest, $9,000 mega toilet can play music, heat the seat, heat the floor below it, put on a light show, raise and lower the lid and of course, flush automatically. It can save presets for up to six people for custom experiences. We’ve had the Numi Smart Toilet in the CNET Smart Home for a while, and though it can do a lot, I’ve never felt like I’ve had a $9,000 experience. Numi isn’t doing anything to save you water beyond the 1.28-gallons-per-flush rate either, so if water-saving tech is your goal, this toilet isn’t going to do much. Leak detectorsAmong all the smart water products out there, leak detectors are the most affordable and most portable. Put them anywhere you’re concerned about leaks. They’re great for basements, underneath kitchen or bathroom sinks or behind toilets. These battery-powered, small devices connect to a mobile app through a smart home hub or Wi-Fi to warn you if water touches the sensor. You’ll get a push notifications to straight your phone. cnet-security-018-roost-leak-detectorYou’ve got a lot of options when it comes to these handy water watchers. SmartThings, iHome, Honeywell, Fibaro and Roost all make a version of a water sensor. These are great for monitoring places that are prone to water, but they can’t tell you much about what’s happening inside your pipes. For a more thorough look at the temperatures, pressures and flow rates in your home’s water supply, you’ll need a whole-home system. Whole-home water monitoring systemsThere are systems that can monitor your entire home’s water supply. Some can even shut off the water in a catastrophic failure event. These typically install at your water meter or you home’s main water supply and require a Wi-Fi connection and app.Some can be DIY, but most at least recommend a professional consultation. With these systems in place, you can see all kinds of stats from your daily, weekly and monthly consumption to water pressure, temperature and flow rate. Moen recently acquired Flo, a whole-home startup that does just that. You can install Flo yourself, but it’s recommended that a Flo professional comes out to your home. You’ll need to be pretty comfortable working with your own water pipes if you want to install this $500 system yourself. flo-product-photos-2 Tyler Lizenby/CNET Once Flo is installed, it can monitor the water pressure and water flow throughout your home. It can also remotely shut off your water if something goes wrong. Of course, you’ll get notifications on everything Flo is doing as well as the option to perform health tests on your system. A similar system, Flume, straps around your home’s existing water meter and connects via a bridge to your Wi-Fi. Unlike Flo, it is intended to be self-installed. Once it’s set up, you’ll get information on water consumption, pressure and any problems it detects within your home. That system costs $200, but it can’t shut off your water in an emergency like Flo can. For most people, these pricey systems are on the overkill side, but if you live in an area prone to freezing pipes, or you’re trying to keep an eye on a plumbing system that isn’t reliable, whole-home systems could save you from a lot of damage. When it comes to smart water, these are probably the most practical and data-driven devices. Is any of this stuff worth it? Monitoring your water isn’t the most luxurious of smart home capabilities. It’s not the cool, connected thing you’ll show your friends when they come over. However, if you have consistent leak worries in your home or you’re frequently traveling, having at least a leak detector can offer a lot of peace of mind. Smart water value really depends on the category. Sensors, especially the more affordable and portable options are a worthy return on a relatively small investment. However, a $9,000 toilet or $1,200 shower system? Those luxury goods, and they’re obviously not for everyone. The concept behind smart kitchen faucets is intriguing and useful in some cases, but it hasn’t been perfected and is still pricey.That doesn’t mean the average consumer will be locked out of smart water forever. This corner of smart home tech continues to expand and does seem to be working toward real innovation and usefulness. It has the potential to increase our homes’ efficiency and solve problems before they start, and for that reason, it’s worth keeping an eye on.  Tags Best Buy reading • Smart showers, smart toilets and smart sinks: Should you put your plumbing online?

Father planned Beauty murder to frame rapist Police

first_imgRapeFather of Beauty Akhter and two others were involved in the sensational murder of the 16-year-old girl, police said on Saturday, reports UNB.Victim’s father Sayed Ali, his relative Moyna Mia, and a hired professional killer murdered Beauty to implicate one Babul Mia in the crime, Bidhan Tripura, superintendent of police in Habiganj, said at a press conference in Habiganj.He said Beauty’s father Sayed gave confessional statements before Habiganj judicial magistrate Touhidul Islam under section 164 over the murder earlier in the day.Beauty’s father planned to kill her assuming her fade marital prospect after the incident of kidnap and rape, said Shamsur Rahman Bhuiyan, additional superintendent of police and also the head of a three-member probe committee formed over the murder.Moyna Mia took the opportunity to take revenge against Babul as his wife was defeated by Babul’s mother in recently held Union Parisad election, he said.The trio killed Beauty during the wee hours of 17 March and dumped the body in Brahmandora Haor, he added.Beauty of Brahmondora village in Shayestaganj upazila went missing on 16 March and police recovered her body from haor area the next day.According to the case statement, Babul Mia kidnapped Beauty, 16, of Brahmondora village in Shayestaganj upazila on 21 January and raped her for a month.Later on 4 March, the victim’s family members filed a murder case with Woman and Children Repression Prevention Tribunal.On 18 March, her father Sayed Ali filed the case against two people with names, including Babul, and several unknown people with Shayestaganj police station.As Babul started to threat Beauty’s family members for withdrawing the case she was sent to her grandfather’s house at Gunipur village in Lakhai upazila of Habiganj.Later, Babul was arrested in Beanibazar area of Sylhet on 31 March.Police also detained Babul’s mother and one Ismail of Brahmondora village for their alleged involvement in the incident.The incident created a widespread outcry among people when a photograph of the victim’s body lying on a field went viral on Facebook.last_img read more

11 Trade Ministers Reach Deal On Pacific Trade Without US

first_imgPhoto via Twitter Justin Trudeau‏ @JustinTrudeauJapanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe and Canada’s Prime Minister Justin TrudeauIn a major breakthrough, trade ministers from 11 Pacific Rim countries said they reached a deal Saturday to proceed with the free-trade Trans-Pacific Partnership deal that was in doubt after President Donald Trump abandoned it.A statement issued in the early hours Saturday said an accord was reached on “core elements” of the 11-member pact. The compromise was delayed by last-minute disagreements that prevented the TPP leaders from meeting to endorse a plan on Friday.“Ministers are pleased to announce that they have agreed on the core elements of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership,” the 11 nations said in a statement.It said that the ministers maintained “the high standards, overall balance and integrity of the TPP while ensuring the commercial and other interests of all participants and preserving our inherent right to regulate, including the flexibility of the parties to set legislative and regulatory priorities.”In January, Trump pulled out of the deal that was championed by his predecessor Barack Obama. Leaders of the 11 countries remaining in the TPP had been due to meet and endorse a deal worked out in last-minute talks overnight.Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said earlier Friday that the 11 leaders had to postpone their meeting on the sidelines of the annual summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Danang, Vietnam. Abe spoke after meeting with Canadian Prime Ministers Justin Trudeau, who had said days earlier that Canada would not be rushed into an agreement.The TPP member countries are trying to find a way forward without the U.S., the biggest economy and, before Trump took office, one of its most assertive supporters. Trump has said he prefers country-to-country deals and is seeking to renegotiate several major trade agreements to, as he says, “put America first.”Trump reiterated his markedly different stance on trade before the 21-member APEC summit convened late Friday with a gala banquet.The U.S. president told an APEC business conference that “we are not going to let the United States be taken advantage of anymore.” He lambasted the World Trade Organization and other trade forums as unfair to the United States and reiterated his preference for bilateral trade deals, saying “I am always going to put America first.”Trump said he would not enter into large trade agreements, alluding to U.S. involvement in the North American Free Trade Agreement and the TPP.In contrast, Chinese President Xi Jinping told the same group that nations need to stay committed to economic openness or risk being left behind.The Chinese president drew loud applause when he urged support for the “multilateral trading regime” and progress toward a free-trade zone in the Asia-Pacific. China is not part of the TPP.APEC operates by consensus and customarily issues nonbinding statements. TPP commitments would eventually be ratified and enforced by its members.But even talks this week on a declaration to cap the APEC summit had to be extended for an extra half day as ministers haggled over wording. It’s unclear what the exact sticking points were, but officials have alluded to differences over the unequal impact more open trade has had on workers and concerns over automation in manufacturing that could leave many millions in a wide array of industries with no work to do.As a developing country with a fast-growing export sector, this year’s host country, Vietnam, has a strong interest in open trade and access for its exports to consumers in the West. The summit is an occasion for its leaders to showcase the progress its economy has made thanks largely to foreign investment and trade. Danang, Vietnam’s third largest city, is in the midst of a construction boom as dozens of resorts and smaller hotels pop up along its scenic coastline.APEC’s members are Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, the U.S. and Vietnam.

Royal wedding popular with gamers whod have guessed it

first_imgSure, there are girls all around the world just swooning over the idea of a handsome prince marrying a commoner, as Prince William did Friday when he made Kate Middleton his bride. But besides these fawning teens with photos of the prince strewn about their walls, there is a completely different group of people who are equally excited about the Royal Wedding.It seems the gaming community has added a little bit of Will and Kate into their games as well. From zombies to scavenger hunts, we bring you five Royal Wedding-themed games to get you ready for the big day.1. Class 3 OutbreakWhat gamer doesn’t love zombies? Class 3 Outbreak, a web game that uses Google Maps data to put your actual location into the game, lets you see what would actually happen to your area’s population if a clan of zombies actually attacked.  In honor of the Royal Wedding, Class 3 Outbreak has added a “Wills & Kate” map. The game has an eerie soundtrack of the wedding march mixed in with some pretty gruesome zombie groans. The creators, Jay Weston and Saxon Druce of Binary Space congratulate the couple and hope the special day goes “somewhat better than the virtual representation.”2. The Sims 3So you can’t actually play this Sims version of the Royal Wedding, but the video (posted below) is pretty entertaining. If the wedding today actually showed Will and Kate making out on the floor of the Westminster Abbey, Harry showing up shirtless and possibly intoxicated, and the Queen and Prince Charles getting down on the dance floor, maybe we would be more inclined to wake up at 5 a.m. to watch the real thing. Instead, we have this delightful video from the Sims, which was created using Sims 3 and expansion packs.3. Royal Wedding at Miniclip.comThe browser-based game is free, and honestly, a little mind-numbing. The Royal Wedding game has you playing as Will and Kate doing mindless tasks like finding William’s labrador, or finding Kate’s cellphone. It’s more of a scavenger hunt type of puzzle game, but it’s pretty fun if you have some time to kill while all the news sites are down and you’re trying to watch the coverage of the event. The artwork is actually very well done and the attention to detail is not to go unnoticed. The game is actually pretty tricky, so don’t dismiss it just yet.4. FarmvilleOver the past few days, every one’s favorite social network farming game, Farmville, has released various items in conjunction with the Royal Wedding. Although they’re not marketed as “Royal Wedding Corgie,” or “Royal Wedding Dress,” the new items are all part of Farmville’s new Enchanted Love theme in the game, which, to our knowledge started on Monday. New items include Giant Wedding Trees, the Royal Guard Duck, the Royal Horse, the Royal Palace, a Giant Ribbon Flower, a Ribbon Flower Tree, a Welsh Corgi, a Knight Steed, a Romantic Cottage, a Wedding Dress, and a Black Tuxedo. These all go for various amounts of Farm Cash, and most items are available for only a limited time.5. Lucent HeartLucent Heart, the Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) adventure game from Gamania, is based off of the zodiac and Greek mythology and influences the good guys as they battle the bad to get control over the land of Arcadia. Each player’s actions are based on their daily horoscope, and along with Cupid match-making, some players even plan an in-game wedding with all their friends (in the game, of course) will attend. And to celebrate the Royal Wedding, Lucent Heart is hosting its own version.Gamania UK product manager Niall Callaghan told Gamasutra that honestly, it’s not the real William and Kate in the game, but the characters look a lot like the real prince and princess-to-be.

Here is what ails Mango People

first_img‘When robert Vadra said ‘We are mango people in a banana republic’, he made news and while we deliberated over it, we made humour,’ said Sundeep Sharma.The 32-year-old organised an open mic nite called A Comedy Open Mic for Mango People last weekend in the Capital to provide a platform to new talent and give comedy regulars a place to try out new material.’The first day of organising an open mic was a funny day in itself. The venue where we had decided to perform first had some problem and the venue had to be cancelled. First I thought that the name Banana Republic (meaning a failed state) is playing up to its reputation and is not auspicious, then the idea the show must go on took over me,’ Sundeep narrated on a lighter note. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The show featured both amateurs and professional comedians like Rajneesh Kapoor, Amit Tandon, Zakir Khan, Joke Singh Nishant Comedian, Moneesh Chakravarty (who made his debut), Manu Sharma, Vasu Ritu Primlani, Appurv Gupta and Nitin Gupta (Rivaldo) of the popular Delhi circuit.As and when the stage was taken over by the performers, the crowd went berserk with laughter. Be it Zakir Khan’s introspection over how some girls he knew transformed into pretty chicks later — thereby completing a metamorphosis — must have left Franz Kafka in splits. Similarly, Tandon cracked a few punches on married men and their witty musings after marriage. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixManu’s comical timing on the other hand was bang on with his playful antics based on the name of the venue and how he has to face the brunt of sharing his name with a killer in real life. Sundeep too displayed his comical skills by giving a five second discount time to understand all intelligent jokes.Vasu shared her plight of being a fairer sex in the male dominated society on a lighter note, as Nishant wished hard to buy that car which would ensure one can drive from Gurgaon to Connaught Place in just 15 minutes — as claimed by a random property dealer.Rajneesh Kapoor, a veteran in the comedy circuit, tickled the funny bone with his experience of asking for directions in the Capital, where a cow is a pertinent milestone.Similarly Rivaldo gave some tips on how to deal with hair loss and how display pictures on Facebook are in sync with your respective boyfriends and girlfriends. For all the lovers of comedy in the Capital, Sharma will be back again with his next in December.last_img read more

After Paolo Soleris comments the significance of

first_imgAfter Paolo Soleri’s comments the significance of the many parasols in evidence became clear. The parasol is important for its efficient daily use and ritualistic presence in a truly urban landscape among congenial people.[photo: sue] The Community Waterfall (a part of the theatrical work “Spectrum”) was a ritual performed by Vessel and the members of the audience/ community. Vessel performers gathered water from the canal in buckets and brought them up on the bridge. At a signal, the buckets were emptied over the side of the bridge back into the canal.[photo: David DeGomez] Of course Paolo Soleri was the star of the day.
