The first Star Trek series in 12 years debuts on television

2017-09-24T22:55:03Z

Koavf: {{review}} {{date|September 24, 2017}}{{infobox|Television}} On Sunday, American television station [[w:CBS|CBS]] aired "[[w:The Vulcan Hello|The Vulcan Hello]]", the premiere episode of ''[[w:Star Trek: Discovery|Star Trek: Discovery]]''. The episode is slated to be the only one of the series broadcast on conventional television, with future installments exclusive to the streaming platform [[:w:CBS All Access|CBS All Access]]. ''Discovery'' continues founder [[w:Gene Roddenberry|Gene Roddenberry]]’s vision of peaceful co-existence among the peoples of Earth with the first series that features a black female lead. The airing follows several months of development and delays, as the series was retooled by veteran television producers including [[:w:Bryan Fuller|Bryan Fuller]] and [[w:Akiva Goldman|Akiva Goldman]]. Initially announced in 2015 to celebrate ''Star Trek''’s 50th anniversary the following year, the series has been plagued by setbacks, including losing showrunner Bryan Fuller in late 2016, forcing its release date to move from January to September of this year. The series is the newest installment of long-running science fiction franchise [[:Category:Star Trek|''Star Trek'']]. ''Discovery'' is a prequel program set before [[:w:Star Trek: The Original Series|the 1960s original series]], and intended to explore the relationship between the Earth-based Federation made up of several benign alien species who explore the universe to find new life and the war-like Klingons, who are perennial villains of the various films and television installments. Veteran American television actress [[w:Sonequa Martin-Green|Sonequa Martin-Green]] stars as Michael Burnham, a first officer on the USS ''Shenzou'', searching space for new alien civilizations. Paramount has been developing the show for several years, following both the commercial disappointment of their 2001–2005 series ''[[w:Star Trek: Enterprise|Enterprise]]'' as well as the massive box office success of a rebooted film series created by [[w:J. J. Abrams|J. J. Abrams]] which jettisoned much of the older continuity beginning in 2009. The series has earned praise and controversy for its decision to cast the lead as a black woman. Creators say that this inclusivity is consistent with the franchise’s history, which has featured black male and white female leads. The original series garnered significant controversy in the 1960s for including a kiss between the white lead Captain [[w:James T. Kirk|James T. Kirk]] played by [[w:William Shatner|William Shatner]] and black series regular [[w:Uhura|Uhura]], portrayed by [[w:Nichelle Nichols|Nichelle Nicols]]. ''Discovery'' also marks a key part of CBS’s strategy for streaming its streaming video service All Access. Launched in 2014, the platform has a library of several thousand episodes from the network’s past programming as well as debuting two spin-off series: ''[[w:Big Brother: Over the Top|Big Brother: Over the Top]]'', from the reality television franchise ''[[w:Big Brother (TV)|Big Brother]]'' and the legal procedural ''[[w:The Good Fight|The Good Fight]]'', a companion to ''[[w:The Good Wife|The Good Wife]]''. The [[w:CBS Corporation|CBS Corporation]] is attempting to use this drama as an incentive for signing up to their service, which competes with industry giants [[w:Amazon Prime|Amazon Prime]], [[w:Netflix|Netflix]] and [[w:Hulu|Hulu]]. The latter is a joint venture created by most of the broadcast networks in the United States but CBS has long been a hold-out, sharing only selected programming with various third-party streaming platforms while building their own competing service. The day of airing, CBS claimed that the debut resulted in their biggest surge in membership without offering any hard numbers. {{haveyoursay}} == Sources == *{{Source |title= All Access Boosted to Warp Speed by ''Star Trek'' |url=http://www.broadcastingcable.com/all-access-boosted-warp-speed-star-trek/168841 |pub=Broadcasting & Cable |author= Jon Lafayette |date=September 25, 2017}} *{{sourc[...]

Police are investigating the cause of death of a woman rescued from the sea in {{w|Ullapool}} in the [[Scotland|Scottish]] {{w|Scottish Highlands|Highlands}}. The woman was spotted floating in the water on Short Street in the village at about 0705 UTC today. She was taken to {{w|Raigmore Hospital}} in {{w|Inverness}}, about 60 miles (96 kilometres) away, where she subsequently died. {{w|Police Scotland}}, who informed her next of kin, say they are currently treating the death as unexplained.

"Our enquiries are at an early stage and I would urge anyone who has information which could help establish the circumstances to make contact with us," Inspector David Ogilvie said. "Information can be passed to police on 101, using reference R052503. Our thoughts are with the woman's family and friends at this difficult time."

Uber London not to be issued with operator licence after September

2017-09-22T11:05:41Z

Acagastya: iwl; category {{date|September 25, 2017}} {{United Kingdom}} On Friday, {{W|Transport for London}} (TfL) announced [[US]]-based {{wikt|taxi}} booking application {{W|Uber (company)|Uber}} would not get a renewed private hire operator license after their current permit expires at the end of the month. The regulatory body released an official statement on their website and stated Uber London Limited was "not fit and proper to hold a private hire operator license". TfL said Uber London "demonstrate a lack of coporate responsibility" for reporting serious criminal offences, and for obtaining background of the drivers and medical certificates. In August, police said Uber allowed a driver despite allegations of {{w|sexual assault|sexually assaulting}} a passenger. The company has been accused of sexism and bullying. TfL in its statement also complained about possible use of "{{W|greyball}}" software to prevent officials from accessing the application for law enforcement duties. According to Uber's statistics, about 3.5 million people in {{w|London}} use Uber. There are some 40 thousand drivers tied with Uber within the British capital. Per the Private Hire Vehicles (London) Act 1998, Uber can appeal against TfL's decision within three weeks. Uber received an interim renewal for four months in May, and it is set to expire at the end of the month. To this announcement, Uber London's General Manager Tom Elvidge said, "By wanting to ban our app from the capital Transport for London and the Mayor have caved in to a small number of people who want to restrict consumer choice. If this decision stands, it will put more than 40,000 licensed drivers out of work and deprive Londoners of a convenient and affordable form of transport. To defend the livelihoods of all those drivers, and the consumer choice of millions of Londoners who use our app, we intend to immediately challenge this in the courts." He also added, "This ban would show the world that, far from being open, London is closed to innovative companies who bring choice to consumers." TfL said Uber's irresponsibility could compromise the safety and security of the public. In contrast, Uber's response said their service enhances safety. London mayor {{w|Sadiq Khan}}, on {{w|Facebook}}, said, "[...]all companies in London must play by the rules and adhere to the high standards we expect — particularly when it comes to the safety of customers. Providing an innovative service must not be at the expense of customer safety and security. I fully support TfL's decision — it would be wrong if TfL continued to license Uber if there is any way that this could pose a threat to Londoners' safety and security. Any operator of private hire services in London needs to play by the rules." Uber has received criticism from traditional taxi drivers as well as government officials. Uber was banned from [[Bulgaria]] and [[Denmark]], and faces regulatory issues in [[France]], [[Italy]], [[Hungary]], and [[Spain]]. It also faced legal inquiry for use of greyball in the US to resist government regulation of the application. Regarding the complaint about improper use of use of Greyball, Elvidge cited an independent review and said it "found that 'greyball' has never been used or considered in the UK for the purposes cited by TfL". Uber operates in over 40 cities and towns in the UK. {{haveyoursay}} == Sources == *{{source |url = https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2017/09/22/regulators-strip-uber-london-operating-license-transport-london-says-wont-renew-license-uber-operate/692175001/ |title = London wants to boot Uber, which will keep running as it fights move |author = Kim Hjelmgaard, Marco della Cava |pub = USA Today |date = September 22, 2017 }} *{{source |url = https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/sep/22/uber-licence-transport-for-london-tfl |title = Uber stripped [...]

Foreign workers paid thousands to obtain jobs in Canada

{{Canada}}

The {{w|Supreme Court of British Columbia}} has certified a Class Action lawsuit against {{w|Mac's Convenience Stores}} (Mac's) and three immigration consultants. The case involves 450 foreign workers who allege they were enticed to come to Canada with promises of jobs. Each of the workers paid a fee of up to $8,500 to the consultants for a job with Mac’s. The {{w| Class_action#Canada|Class Action}} lawsuit was certified on Monday by Justice Arne Silverman.

The jobs were offered to the workers under the {{w|Temporary foreign worker program in Canada|Temporary Foreign Worker Program}} which specifies that fees for job placements must be paid by the employer. The government has not laid charges in this matter.

One of the plaintiffs, Prakash Basyal, says he met one of the defendants at a job fair in Dubai. He interviewed with a representative of Mac’s and signed a two-year contract for a low wage cashier’s job in {{w|Edmonton, Alberta}}, and paid the agreed fee of $8,000. After he quit his job in Abu Dhabi, he arrived in {{w|Vancouver, British Columbia}} and received a permit allowing him to work for Mac’s, but was told the job he contracted for was not available. He was then left with no choice but support himself working illegally at a bottle depot in Calgary where he was discovered by {{w|Canada Border Services Agency}} and arrested. He was handcuffed, detained and humiliated.

Lawyers representing the workers claimed that abuses under the Program are common. They say this leaves foreign workers vulnerable. The defendants declined comment.

US toy retail giant Toys R Us files for bankruptcy in US, Canada

2017-09-20T18:34:30Z

Numbermaniac: {{date|September 21, 2017}}{{Economy and business}} On Monday night, [[New Jersey]], [[US]]-based toy retail giant {{W|Toys R Us}} filed for bankruptcy in the US as well as in [[Canada]]. The retailer filed it from [[Richmond, Virginia|Richmond]], [[Virginia]] for Chapter 11 bankruptcy code in the US, and a judge allowed a loan of over [[US$]]2 billion. According to the filing, the retail chain owns US$6.6 billion in assets, but has a debt of US$7.9 billion. They were under a roughly US$5 billion debt since the company underwent a three-way acquisition in 2005. {{w|Kohlberg Kravis Roberts}}, {{W|Bain Capital}}, and {{W|Vornado Realty Trust}} acquired Toys R Us for around US$7 to US$7.5 billion. After the US judge approved a loan, Toys R Us received about US$3 billion from the lenders to continue the business and survive a competitive market, and restructure their business model. E-commerce giant [[Amazon.com]], [[Walmart]] and {{W|Target Corporation|Target}} are some of the competitors for the conventional '{{wikt|brick and mortar}}' toy shop, with lower priced-merchandise and fast, cheap delivery. In a conference call in June, CEO {{W|Dave Brandon}} said "very, very aggressive pricing online" was causing problems. He also said the company was experiencing "significant weakness in demand for their products globally". Toys R Us are to clear a debt of US$400 million by May 2018. Toys R Us said they would continue to operate for the holiday season. Bankruptcy lawyer Jeff Gleit said Toys R Us "need to do both a financial restructuring as well as an operational restructuring" and "needs to modernize with the times". Last holiday season, Toys R Us made sales around US$4.5 billion. Overall, the company reported a US$29 million loss in 2016. CEO Brandon said, "Our objective is to work with our debt holders and other creditors to restructure the US$5 billion of long-term debt on our balance sheet, which will provide us with greater financial flexibility to invest in our business". Toys R Us employs more than 60 thousand people in 38 countries around the world in more than 1600 stores. The company's stocks fell by six percent after filing for Chapter 11 protection. US bankruptcy code Chapter 11 allows the company to restructure under a plan approved by the court. The company would also be shielded from creditors' claims during the process. For the stores located in Canada, Toys R Us filed bankruptcy in {{w|Ontario}} and are to undergo reorganisation. However, 259 stores located outside the US or Canada will not undergo reorganisation, the company said. Over 300 US-based retailers have filed for bankruptcy this year, and hundreds of stores closed. {{haveyoursay}} == Sources == *{{source |url = https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/business/wp/2017/09/19/toys-r-us-files-for-bankruptcy-amid-struggle-to-pay-down-billions-in-debt/ |title = Toys R Us — crushed by debt — files for bankruptcy |author = Abha Bhattarai |pub = Washington Post |date = September 20, 2017 }} *{{source |url = http://www.businessinsider.in/Traders-are-making-huge-bets-that-the-Toys-R-Us-bankruptcy-will-crush-one-of-its-main-suppliers/articleshow/60767213.cms |title = Traders are making huge bets that the Toys R Us bankruptcy will crush one of its main suppliers |author = Joe Ciolli |pub = Business Insider |date = September 20, 2017 }} *{{source |url = http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-toys-r-us-bankruptcy-20170919-story.html |title = Toys R Us says its bankruptcy won't interrupt the holiday shopping season |author = James F.

U.S. President Donald Trump vows to "totally destroy" North Korea if it threatens America or its allies

2017-09-20T17:26:14Z

Quinton Feldberg: {{review}}{{date|September 20, 2017}} {{United States}} [[File:Donald_Trump_by_Gage_Skidmore.jpg|thumb|left|President Donald Trump {{image|Gage Skidmore}}]] During his speech at the {{w|United Nations}} {{w|United Nations General Assembly|General Assembly}} last Tuesday, [[United States]] President {{w|Donald Trump}} expressed concern over {{w|North Korea}}'s nuclear testing by threatening to "totally destroy" the nation of over 25 million people, calling the country's leader, {{w|Kim Jong Un}}, "rocket man" and saying that Kim was "on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime." On Thursday, Kim called Trump a "a mentally deranged megalomaniac" and said that he would "pay dearly" for the threat he had made. Kim called Trump "a rogue and a gangster fond of playing with fire, rather than a politician." Kim called Trump's speech the "most ferocious declaration of war in history" and threatened the "highest level of hardline countermeasure" in response. Kim said that Trump had "rendered the world restless through threats and blackmail" and was "unfit to hold the prerogative of supreme command of a country." Kim said, "his remarks have convinced me - rather than frightening or stopping me - that the path I chose is correct and that it is the one I have to follow to the last." On Saturday, North Korean Foreign Minister {{w|Ri Yong Ho}} called Trump's "rocket man" comment an "irreversible mistake". He added that North Korea was "only a few steps away" from completion of its nuclear force. In response, Trump tweeted, "Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at UN If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!" {{haveyoursay}} == Sources == *{{source |url = http://news.sky.com/story/north-korea-calls-trumps-rocket-man-comment-an-irreversible-mistake-11050718 |title = Trump hits back after North Korea brands him 'a mentally deranged megalomaniac' |author = |pub = Sky News |date = September 24, 2017 }} *{{source |url = http://news.sky.com/story/trump-rocket-man-kim-jong-un-should-have-been-handled-years-ago-11048817 |title = Trump: 'Rocket Man' Kim Jong Un should have been handled years ago |author = |pub = Sky News |date = September 23, 2017 }} *{{source |url = http://news.sky.com/story/kim-jong-un-trump-to-pay-dearly-for-threats-11047246 |title = Kim Jong Un: 'Deranged' Trump to 'pay dearly' |author = |pub = Sky News |date = September 22, 2017 }} *{{source |url = http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-41324970 |title = Trump: US would destroy North Korea if forced to defend itself |author = |pub = BBC News |date = September 19, 2017 }} *{{source |url = https://www.reuters.com/article/us-un-assembly-trump-democrats/democratic-senate-leader-calls-trumps-rocket-man-remark-at-u-n-risky-idUSKCN1BU2OI |title = Democratic Senate leader calls Trump's 'Rocket Man' remark at U.N.

Earthquake strikes Mexico City

2017-09-20T00:10:51Z

Acagastya: Not ready when reviewed: article needs improvement(s). Add article flag. (Using easy peer review {{tasks|news|re-review}} {{Mexico}} {{date|September 20, 2017}} A 7.1 earthquake struck the [[Mexico|Mexican]] states of {{w|State of Mexico|Mexico}}, {{w|State of Puebla|Puebla}} and {{w|State of Morelos|Morelos}} at 1:14 p.m. local time (18:14 GMT) Tuesday, shortly after the residents of the capital, [[Mexico City]], completed an earthquake drill. As of today, the death toll has reached 237. According to the [[United States Geological Survey]], the epicenter was in Puebla, about 75 miles (120 km) from Mexico City. Almost 100 people are reported dead, 26 in Puebla, 54 in Morelos and 39 in Mexico, including the capital. Dozens more have been dug out of the rubble still alive, many with the rescuers' bare hands. One girl, named Frida Sofía, who was trapped in the collapsed Enrique Rebsamen primary and secondary school, was able to show diggers she was still alive by wiggling her fingers. Volunteers and members of the army managed to free her from the rubble, but more than 30 of her classmates are still not accounted for. "People here are are used to encountering these types of situations, but this time, I definitely sensed more fear from people," freelance reporter Manuel Rueda, who was in Mexico City for the quake, told ''CBS News''. "We were all running like crazy," said Leticia Gonzales, who lives in the city. "This was the worst earthquake I've ever seen." The drill was held because Tuesday was the anniversary of an 8.0 earthquake that hit Mexico City in 1985, killing 10,000 people. Since then, many of the city's buildings have been rebuilt specifically to resist earthquakes, which President [[Enrique Peña Nieto]] declared successful some days ago. As of Wednesday, about 44 buildings are said to have collapsed in this week's quake. "The government's boast about the triumph of the new building codes were clearly bullshit, and have come falling down as we see new buildings have collapsed while older ones have survived," public policy analyst Rodolfo Soriano Nuñez told the press. "The situation in the school – which is quite new – should not have happened." This is the second major earthquake to hit Mexico in two weeks. On Thursday, September 7, an 8.1 earthquake, the strongest in decades, struck {{w|State of Oaxaca|Oaxaca}} in the southern part of the country. Seismologist Lucy Jones told the press, "This earthquake is smaller [than the September 7 quake] but closer to many more people. So where the 8.2 was offshore—and at a depth of 40 miles down—this is only 80 miles from Mexico City, about 30 miles down, and with a lot of people nearby. Proximity makes a big difference," she said. She went on to explain that Mexico City's location, on a the dried-out bed of an ancient lake with loose soil, means earthquakes are felt with more force there than in other cities: "Here in downtown Los Angeles, we have a factor of five amplification because of soils. In Mexico City, it's over a factor of 100." [[File:Mexico tectonic plates.png|thumb|220px|left|Tectonic plates of Mexico.

Hurricane Maria, now category 5, bears down on Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands

2017-09-19T23:55:37Z

Darkfrog24: Darkfrog24 moved page Guajataca Dam cracks, Puerto Rican authorities evacuate two hurricane-torn towns to Despite spillway, fate of Guajataca Dam remains uncertain in hurricane-torn Puerto Rico {{review}} {{weather}} {{date|September 19, 2017}} Despite a continued flash flood warning and announcements from authorities that the area remains unsafe, residents began returning to the towns of Isabela and Quebradillas in northwestern [[Puerto Rico]] today after a spillway operation drained water away from the Guajataca Dam, which developed a crack in response to heavy rainfall from {{w|Hurricane Maria}}. According to federal officials, some 70,000 people were slated for evacuation. "We were able to directly observe the damages of the Guajataca dam," Governor Ricardo Rossello announced on [[Twitter]] yesterday. "We re-affirm the evacuation order for the area." The crack was initially reported as a "contained breach," but Puerto Rican authorities later announced that the dam was failing. As of Saturday night, the dam continues to hold, but it is not clear for how long. "There's no clue as to how long or how this can evolve. That is why the authorities are moving so fast," said Anthony Reynes of the United States National Weather service, "because they also have the challenges of all the debris. It is a really, really dire situation ... We really don't know how long it would take for this failure to become a full break of the dam." {{w|Hurricane Maria}}, which struck scarcely a week after {{w|Hurricane Irma}}, dropped more than 15 inches (25 cm) of rainwater on the mountains whose aquifers drain into an artificial lake held in place by the dam, which is about 90 years old. Hurricane Maria grew from a category 3 to a category 5 over the course of two days, with wind speed more than doubling from Sunday to Monday. ''BBC'' forecaster Steve Cleaton attributes this to unusually warm ocean surface temperatures. "No generation has seen a hurricane like this since San Felipe II in 1928," Governor of Puerto Rico {{w|Ricardo Rosselló}} told the press on Tuesday. "This is an unprecedented atmospheric system." Because the center of Hurricane Irma passed north of Puerto Rico, sparing it from extreme damage, residents of harder-hit islands such as {{w|Saint Thomas (island)|Saint Thomas}} fled there to escape looting and other problems and now find another storm on the way. The governor of Puerto Rico advised people to seek shelter and that 500 facilities are ready to host as many as 100,000 people and that the United States [[FEMA|Federal Emergency Management Agency]] was on hand restore power from the expected blackouts. "You have to evacuate. Otherwise, you're going to die," Puerto Rico's public safety commissioner, Hector Pesquera, told the public as the storm approached. "I don't know how to make this any clearer." Maria has killed at least 30 people, including 13 in Puerto Rico. It also hit the [[United Kingdom|British]] island of [[Dominica]] and the [[France|French]] territories of [[Martinique]] and {{w|Guadaloupe}}, where at least one person was killed, but local officials say that it is too soon to discuss the extent of the damage. Puerto Rico is a U.S. commonwealth. ==Related news== *{{wikinews|Many in Texas still reeling following hurricane Harvey|August 28, 2017}} == Sources == *{{source|title=Aid reaches Puerto Rico [...]



Equifax data breach involves 100,000 Canadians

2017-09-19T23:27:49Z

Ottawahitech: Tryb another story

{{date}}

The Canadian Press reported today that Credit Agency Equifax Canada acknowledged that 100,000 Canadian accounts have been breached when the company’s website was compromised earlier this year. On Sept 7 it was reported that 143 million Americans have been affected by the breach as well as an undisclosed number of Canadians and British citizens. The announcement followed a report on Friday that Canada’s privacy watchdog has started an investigation into the matter.

The data breach has come to public attention only recently even though it happened in earlier this year. The breach happened when the Apache Struts servers which Equifax uses to store information was apparently not patched with security updates for some months allowing hackers to take advantage of the vulnerability. The data was unsecured between May 13 and July 30th this year. The breach only affected data stored in the United States. Equifax itself was unaware the breach happened until July 29.

The announcement today was made by Equifax Canada president, Lisa Nelson. Nelson apologized to Canadian consumers whose data was breached and stated that Equifax was unable to provide information until its own investigation is completed. Affected Canadians will receive instructions via mail from Equifax Canada. They will also receive the same benefits their American counterparts received at the beginning of this month. Even though the breach only affected data stored in the United States, Canadians without a social security number were excluded from Equfax’s offer to provide free access to files for year.

New book by Ellen Pao, former Chief Executive of Redit, explores sexism in Silicon Valley

2017-09-18T00:23:13Z

Koavf: /* Sources */ {{review}} {{date|September 19, 2017}} {{Economy and business}} {{w|Ellen Pao}}'s new book, ''Reset: My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting Change'', was released on Tuesday. ''Reset'' is the story of what happened before, at, and after she filed a {{w|Pao v. Kleiner Perkins|workplace gender discrimination lawsuit}} against an employer. The book is short-listed for the 2017 {{w|Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award}}. The landmark court case filed in 2012 was heard before a jury in 2015 in a trial that lasted 5 weeks. The trial was covered daily by many reporters, and followed by people around the world. Pao did not prevail in court, but her story resonated with others and encouraged them to stand up for their rights. It started a global conversation about sexism in tech industry where women and minorities still form a small percentage of workers. "The culture, I began to realize, is designed to keep out people who aren’t white men," said Pao. ''Reset: My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting Change'' explains why Pao turned down the settlement offered to her and chose to tell her story in a public trial in spite of enormous monetry and emotional costs. "I believed I had an obligation to speak out about what I’d seen as one of the few women and people of color in that world," said Pao. {{HYS}} == Sources == *{{source |url = https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/fighting-hard--and-losing--the-gender-discrimination-battle-in-the-tech-world/2017/09/22/79bf60c6-8cca-11e7-84c0-02cc069f2c37_story.html?utm_term=.86baa9e08972 |title = Fighting hard — and losing — the gender discrimination battle in the tech world |pub = Washington Post |author = Irin Carmon |date = September 22, 2017 }} *{{source |url = https://www.ft.com/content/54c2bc9c-9d27-11e7-9a86-4d5a475ba4c5 |title = Business Book of the Year 2017 — the shortlist |pub = FT & McKinsey Business Book of the Year 2017 |date = September 19, 2017 }} *{{source |url = https://www.cbsnews.com/news/ellen-pao-reset-new-book-workplace-gender-discrimination/ |title = Ellen Pao talks discrimination in the workplace, new book “Reset" |author = |pub = CBS News |date = September 19, 2017 }} *{{source |url = http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/09/18/ellen-paos-new-book-heartache-stress-hope-gender-bias-trial/ |title = Ellen Pao’s new book: On the heartache, stress and hope of her gender bias trial |author = Marisa Kendall |pub = Mercury News |date = September 18, 2017 }} *{{source |url = https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/16/opinion/sunday/ellen-pao-sexism-tech.html |title = Ellen Pao: Has Anything Really Changed for Women in Tech? |author = ELLEN PAO |pub = New York Times |date = September 16, 2017 }} *{{source |url = http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/success/fastcompany/tca-ellen-pao-legal-system-failing-women-minorities-in-workplace-20170915-story.html |title = Ellen Pao: Legal system failing women, minorities in workplace |author = Kathleen Davis |pub = Chicago Tribune |date = September 15, 2017 }} *{{source |url = https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2017/09/13/ellen-pao-reset-diversity-inclusion-tech/657857001/ |title = Ellen Pao says it's time for a tech industry reset |author = Jessica Guynn |pub = USA Today |date = September 14, 2017 }} *{{source |url = https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/08/style/ellen-pao-gender-discrimination-silicon-valley-reset.html |title = Ellen Pao Is Not Done Fighting |author = JESSICA BENNETT |pub [...]

{{w|Carlos Muñoz Portal}}, 37, a location scout for the ''{{w|Netflix}}'' original series ''{{w|Narcos (TV series)|Narcos}}'', was found shot to death in his vehicle near {{w|Temascalapa}} in [[Mexico]] this past Monday.

One of Portal's friends told ''El País'' he had been scouting locations for the fourth season of ''Narcos'' near the state of {{w|State of Hidalgo|Hidalgo}}, which has one of the highest murder rates in the country.

The police say there are no witnesses because the body was found in a remote area. A spokesperson told the public, "We do not know if he was in Hidalgo and from there they followed him or if he was in the state of Mexico and tried to flee towards Hidalgo."

Netflix issued the following statement to the public: "We are aware of the passing of Carlos Munoz Portal, a well-respected scout, and send our condolences to his family. The facts surrounding his death are still unknown as authorities continue to investigate."

Previous seasons of ''Narcos'' were set in [[Colombia]], but the fourth season is rumored to focus on the {{w|Juárez cartel}}, which operates in Mexico. Increasing violence in the country has caused many studios to move or cancel shoots.

Portal had also worked on several films, including the ''{{w|The Fast and the Furious}}'' movies, ''{{w|Apocalypto}}'', ''{{w|Man on Fire (2004 film)|Man on Fire}}'', and the {{w|James Bond}} film ''{{w|Spectre (2015 film)|Spectre}}''.

Football: Roy Hodgson pens two-year contract; becomes seventh permanent manager in six years

2017-09-15T08:58:01Z

Acagastya: iwl {{date|September 15, 2017}}{{football}} On Tuesday, former manager of [[England]]'s [[soccer|football]] team {{W|Roy Hodgson}} signed a two-year contract with [[London]]-based football club {{W|Crystal Palace FC|Crystal Palace}}, the club announced via their official website. 70-year-old Hodgson has about forty years as a football manager, and has managed fifteen clubs, and four countries' national teams. He has managed four {{W|Premier League}} clubs — {{W|Blackburn Rovers}}, {{W|Fulham FC}}, [[Liverpool F.C.|Liverpool]] and {{W|West Bromwich}}, having 34.72 % win rate in Premier League. In 2011, he helped West Bromwich avoid relegation, and a year earlier, he helped Fulham to reach the final of the {{W|UEFA Europa League}}. Hodgson went on to manage {{w|England national football team|England}}. Under his management, ''The Three Lions'' reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA Euro 2012. In 2014's FIFA World Cup, England were eliminated in the group stage, and last year, following 2–1 defeat against [[Iceland]] in [[UEFA Euro 2016|Euro 2016]], Roy Hodgson announced resignation from the post. Hodgson has won seven [[Sweden|Swedish]] league titles, two Swedish cups, and one league title each in [[Switzerland]] and [[Denmark]]. After penning the deal, Hodgson said, "This is very much the club of my boyhood and I remember in my youth watching the club from the terraces at the Holmesdale Road end which gave me such fond memories. In those days I had dreams of playing for the team, then as a coach you think about coaching the team and a lot has happened in between times." Regarding the poor start of the season, Hodgson said, "I don't honestly believe that there is necessarily a lot that needs to be done. You can always get off to a bad start, what we've got to remember is our fate will be decided after 38 games, not four." Hodgson's predecessor {{W|Frank de Boer}}'s three-year contract was terminated the day before Hodgson's hiring, after his fourth consecutive defeat in the English Premier League. Crystal Palace was yet to score a goal, and they were nineteenth in the league table. Hodgson is now the oldest permanent manager in the Premier League. He is also the seventh manager of Crystal Palace in the past six years. Hodgson's first match as Crystal Palace's manager is to be an away match against {{w|Southampton FC}}, scheduled for tomorrow. {{haveyoursay}} == Related news == *{{wikinews|Football: Crystal Palace sacks de Boer after 77 days as manager|Thursday, September 14, 2017}} *{{wikinews|UEFA Euro 2016, Last 16: Italy-Spain and England-Iceland|Thursday, June 30, 2016}} == Sources == *{{source |url = http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/41229077 |title = Crystal Palace: Roy Hodgson succeeds Frank de Boer as manager |author = |pub = BBC Sport |date = September 12, 2017 }} *{{source |url = http://www.espn.in/football/crystal-palace/story/3201705/roy-hodgson-named-crystal-palace-boss-after-frank-de-boer-exit |title = Roy Hodgson named Crystal Palace boss after Frank de Boer exit |author = |pub = ESPN FC |date = September 12, 2017 }} *{{source |url = https://www.cpfc.co.uk/news/2017/september/roy-hodgson-appointed-palace-manager/ |title = Roy Hodgson Appointed Crystal Palace Manager |author = |pub = Crystal Palace FC |date = September 12, 2017 }} [[Category[...]

Acagastya: /* Sources */ iwl {{date|September 15, 2017}}{{infobox|Real Madrid}} Yesterday, [[Brazil|Brazilian]] footballer {{w|Marcelo Vieira|Marcelo}} signed a contract extension with [[Spain|Spanish]] [[Madrid|capital]] club [[Real Madrid]], the club announced via their official website. The new contract runs until June 2022. 29-year-old Marcelo, who currently faces a two-match ban for kicking a {{w|Levante UD}} player {{w|Jefferson Lerma}}, joined ''Los Blancos'' from {{w|Fluminese FC|Fluminese}} in the 2006–07 season.

After killing wife and children, police officer commits suicide

{{date|September 13, 2017}}
{{France}}
A police officer has shot and killed his wife and two of their children at the train station in the [[France|French]] city of {{w|Noyon}} in the department of {{w|Oise (departement)|Oise}}, the local {{w|anchor=France|prosecutor}} said, after the wife had informed the officer of her intention to separate from him. Their sons were aged three and five; a third child, twin to the five year old victim, survived the attack and is in the care of child services. The killings took place around 11:30 local time (0930 {{w|UTC}}) on Sunday.

The wife, born in 1983, called the ''gendarmes'' (police) in the morning, and they arrived to find her explaining to their five children about the domestic argument which had escalated. The husband returned while the police were present, and they reported he seemed calm and did not interfere with the children being moved to a neighbor's home, so they departed. The woman reportedly chose to leave her house when her husband was not there, and headed to the station, where the husband awaited them armed.

After assassinating his family, the police officer committed suicide. The wife's family lived in {{w|Guiscard}}, near Noyon. The station at Noyon was closed after the incident. Late on Sunday, the police were searching for a witness who escaped after observing the events.

Liberals gain seats in Moscow, nationalists blame Sobyanin

2017-09-11T13:53:30Z

Pi zero: backing off on this one {{tasks|src|npov|re-review}}{{date|September 13, 2017}} {{Russia}}[[Image:Elections in Moscow (2017-09-10) 27.jpg|thumb|left|Sunday's election at Moscow polling station 2326. {{image|[[Commons:User:DonSimon|DonSimon]]}}]] On Sunday, municipal council elections took place in [[Moscow]], [[Russia]]. This time, the city authorities conspicuously did not remind the public that elections were scheduled. There was unusually low turnout; the chairman of the Moscow electoral commission reported on Monday that about 15% of the electorate in Moscow voted. Vote counting indicated some change in political proclivities of Muscovites, the Moscow electoral commission chairman remarked. Russian opposition organized much activity related to Moscow elections – agitation in favor of its candidates, and also observing on the polling stations. But these elections in Moscow saw also a record number of {{w|absentee ballot}}s, a technique prone to fraud. Russian Wikinews also reported some obstruction against journalists. [[Image:Elections in Moscow (2017-09-10) 15.jpg|thumb|left|300px|Sunday's election at Moscow polling station 768. {{image|[[Commons:User:DonSimon|DonSimon]]}}]] The {{w|Yabloko}} party, a social-liberal party with the long-time support in Moscow, claims success and obtaining majority in six districts. {{w|Dmitry Gudkov}}, a prominent opposition activist from Moscow, manages an Internet site where compilation of vote-counting reports seemingly confirms this. From the other end, Russian nationalist politicians (the {{w|Communist Party of the Russian Federation|Communists}} included) detract liberals as the "pro-Western opposition". Some of the nationalists blame the city authorities (both executive and electoral) for the low turnout and the liberals' success. The regional Communist head blames specifically the mayor {{w|Sergey Sobyanin}} (of the ruling United Russia party) for ensuing victory for "utterly pro-Western" candidates. Likewise, the {{w|LDPR}} (far right) leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky lamented late on the election day that authorities engineered "an election without voters" in Moscow. LDPR admits defeat in Moscow and accuses the liberals of vote buying. Political analysts criticize the Moscow executive for arranging fests and other events that allegedly distracted potential voters. While in some districts liberals won (using the brand “united democrats”), and in other a notable Communist presence remained, parts of the city strongly voted for the {{w|United Russia}}. This promises very diverse composition of the municipal councils across {{w|Administrative divisions of Moscow|the districts of Moscow}}. Importance of these elections for the politics of Moscow is augmented by the "municipal filter" to be used on the {{w|Mayor of Moscow|mayor}}'s election, scheduled for 2018. Namely, any mayor candidate will have to seek endorsement from at least 110 municipal representatives covering 109 districts of 125. It's unlikely that the Russian opposition, even liberals and Communists combined, will obtain a representative in each of so many districts. Most (if not all) territorial electoral commissions already produced official results, approving the election. Note th[...]

We would like to thank Frank for his dedication and hard work during his time at the club. A new manager will be appointed in due course and we wish Frank the very best of luck for the future." In November, de Boer was sacked as the head coach of Italian club [[Internazionale]] after the club lost seven of fourteen matches.

Major earthquake leaves dozens dead in Mexico

2017-09-08T20:52:25Z

Pi zero: Not ready when reviewed: article needs improvement(s). Add article flag. (Using easy peer review {{tasks|npov|mos|re-review}}{{Mexico}} {{date|September 16, 2017}} On Thursday afternoon, President of [[Mexico]] [[Enrique Peña Nieto]] received a phone call from his [[United States]] counterpart, [[Donald Trump]], in which Trump offered condolences for the recent earthquake and hurricane that killed 96 people the previous week, claiming that he would have called sooner had Peña Nieto not been in an area with bad cell phone service. Trump had received some criticism for not making such a call earlier. Trump [[Twitter|tweeted]], "Spoke to President of Mexico to give condolences on terrible earthquake. Unable to reach for 3 days b/c of his cell phone reception at site." This drew such responses as "The US president: a man who is so resourceless that a bad cellphone signal renders him unable to communicate. WEAK!" from Twittergoer Carlos Bravo Regidor. Peña Nieto had indeed visited parts of Mexico in which the infrastructure had been badly damaged by the 8.1 earthquake off Mexico's southern coast and by the category 1 hurricane that struck two days later, but he also spent a great deal of time in the capital. He received condolence calls from many US mayors and other public officials, including Governor of [[Texas]] {{w|Greg Abbot}}, who said he would "stand with Mexico and offer whatever aid and assistance we can to help them recover after this disaster." On Thursday September 7, an earthquake scoring 8.1 on the Richter Scale struck southern Mexico, {{w|State of Oaxaca|Oaxaca}}, {{w|State of Tabasco|Tabasco}} and {{w|Chiapas}} in southern Mexico, as well as parts of [[Guatemala]] and [[Honduras]], causing damage as far as [[Mexico City]] and {{w|Guatemala City}}, with a death toll approaching triple digits. The epicenter was 74 miles (120 km) from the coast, in the Pacific Ocean. It was accompanied by a 1 meter {{w|seismic sea wave}}. According to the {{w|US Geological Survey}}, the earthquake was unusually shallow, which also makes it more intense on the surface. About 1.85 million residences lost electricity. Many of the buildings in the city of {{w|Oaxaca, Oaxaca|Oaxaca}} collapsed, including a hospital. "We have experienced earthquakes before, but not like this. It was so intense," Gonzalo Segundo of Chiapas told ''CNN''. "We are alive, that's the important thing." Two days later, {{w|Hurricane Katia}}, then a category 1 hurricane, made landfall on the Gulf Coast. Although it was quickly downgraded to a tropical storm, it remained strong enough to cause a mudslide that killed two people in the city of {{w|Xalapa}} on Saturday. The[...]

Fifteen states sue United States President Donald Trump for cancelling program for undocumented immigrant minors

Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Fifteen states sue United States President Donald Trump for cancelling program for undocumented immigrant minors": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [... {{United States}} {{date|September 9, 2017}} On Wednesday, the {{w|attorney general|attorneys general}} of fifteen [[U.S.]] states filed a lawsuit against United States President [[Donald Trump]] for ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, or DACA, which placed a moratorium on the deportation of [[immigration|undocumented immigrants]] who had come to the U.S. while they were still minors. They argue that Trump's decision to resume deportation was based on racism and therefore illegal and that deporting DACA beneficiaries would harm the economies of their respective states. The suit reads, in part: "Ending DACA, whose participants are mostly of [[Mexico|Mexican]] origin, is a culmination of President Trump's oft-stated commitments — whether personally held, stated to appease some portion of his constituency, or some combination thereof — to punish and disparage people with Mexican roots." The greatest number of DACA beneficiaries are from Mexico, and the next most common countries of birth are [[El Salvador]], [[Guatemala]], and [[Honduras]]. According to [[New York]] Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman, his state is home to 42,000 DACA participants, also called dreamers, after the DREAM Act, a proposed law that would have made something similar to the DACA program a law rather than an executive policy. "Dreamers play by the rules. Dreamers work hard. Dreamers pay taxes. For most of them, America is the only home they've ever known. And they deserve to stay here," he said. According to the lawsuit, 50 DACA participants are students at {{w|Harvard University}}, one the most prestigious schools in the U.S. At the U.S. government's last count, the DACA program covered 787,580 people. It allowed undocumented immigrants who had come to the U.S. under the age of 16 and were no older than 30 in 2012 to apply for temporary federal permits for legal residency, which expire after two years. These in turn allow them to file for work permits and drivers' licenses. It made it much easier for them to attend four-year colleges and for the government to collect income tax. The Trump administration describes this as a phasing out rather than an immediate cancellation. Some DACA participants will be allowed to renew their permits, but only until October and only for participants whose existing permits would expire by next March. President Trump invited [[U.S. Congress|Congress]] to take action on the dream issue: "We will resolve the DACA issue with heart and compassion — but through the lawful Democratic process — while at the same time ensuring that any immigration reform we adopt provides[...]

President {{w|Donald Trump}} announced this morning on Twitter that he's going end {{w|Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals|DACA}}, the immigration policy which was founded in June 2012 by president {{w|Barack Obama}} and by which illegal immigrants are prevented from deportation if they were of minor age when they entered the US. Attorney General {{w|Jeff Sessions}} formally announced the abolition of DACA in a letter. According to Sessions, DACA is "was implemented unilaterally, to great controversy and legal concern" and “open-ended circumvention of immigration laws” .

The DACA policy will fully expire on March 5, 2018. The Congress has been given half a year to come up with an alternative legislation. New applications for protection from undocumented immigrants on basis of DACA will no longer be accepted by the U.S. Government from now on. At the moment, about 800,000 people in the US profit from DACA.

Ken Haas of New Britain, Conn. is one of the local Commissioners of Conservation, but his civic work does not stop there. When comes to the community he loves, Commissioner Haas is an active participant.

In the past, Commissioner Haas has been vocal about finding [http://nbcityjournal.com/archives/14099 Creative Ways to Increase Budget Funding]. Including the development of a municipal power plant stating, "...Under CGS § 7-213 et seq, any town, city or borough may build, buy, lease, or establish an electric system. The system can include power plants and distribution facilities for the municipality’s own use and the use of its inhabitants. Even a solar powered plant.” Haas also stated that, “In terms of financing, a municipality that establishes a utility or that reconstructs, extends, or enlarges its facilities may finance them by issuing revenue bonds with a term of up to 30 years. It can also issue temporary notes that can be backed by the municipality’s taxing authority as well as other revenue sources, but I’m very curious to know if Federal and State bond money can be used in lieu of New Britain’s municipal bonding and tax authority.”

As of now Commissioner Haas is assisting in the development of a New Britain Pride Group, which is [http://nbcityjournal.com/archives/14520 Organizing LGBT Events] in New Britain for next June which is Gay Pride Month. Among the events being planned are a proclamation and a Gay Pride Parade.

“I was in New York Pride in June and it popped into my head that we in New Britain don’t have anything,” said John Board, who has been organizing the event along Kenneth Haas. “New Britain is the right City at the right time to host such an event.”

New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart appointed Board, 23, to lead the parade, which will take place in June of 2018, during Gay Pride Month.

Events, such as Gay Pride Parades are held throughout the world during this month.

Board said everyone will be invited to take part in New Britain.

The preliminary plan has the parade marching the traditional route from Broad Street to Main Street next June. It will be built around already existing events in June, such as the Rose Garden Festival, so it does not interfere.

“It’s all in the infancy,” he said. “In the next 8 or 9 months we will pull it all together.”

Frankfurt defuses World War II-era bomb, evacuates 60,000

Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Frankfurt defuses World War II-era bomb, evacuates 60,000": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite)) {{date|September 4, 2017}} {{Germany}} Experts in {{w|Frankfurt}}, {{w|Germany}} defused a {{w|World War II}}-era bomb yesterday, after more than 60,000 people, the most since World War II, evacuated from the area. The HC 4000 {{w|blockbuster bomb}}, dropped by the {{w|United Kingdom}}'s {{w|Royal Air Force}}, was discovered days ago near the {{w|Goethe University Frankfurt}} campus in a construction site. Fire chiefs warned its reportedly 1.4 tons of explosives could have destroyed an entire city block. Residents of the {{w|Westend (Frankfurt am Main)|Westend}} neighborhood, including those of two nearby hospitals, were asked to evacuate by 8 a.m. local time (0600 {{w|UTC}}), though the bomb removal process only began around 2:30 p.m., as the evacuation drew on. Just after 8 a.m., Markus Röck, a spokesman for the Frankfurt fire brigade, said: "The situation is relaxed which is a good sign and everything so far is going according to plan. We will now assess if everybody has left voluntarily and go from house to house and remove people if necessary." About 1,100 workers assisted with the evacuation, according to the fire brigade, and helicopters and heat-detection technology were used to check everyone within 1.5 {{w|kilometre|kilometers}}, about 1 {{w|mile}}, had left. A convention center and concert hall opened to house people, and at museums and {{w|Frankfurt Airport|the airport}}, other activities were offered for free. When the area near the bomb was evaluated, other parts of the city became more populated. Peter Cachola Schmal, director of the {{w|German Architecture Museum}}, remarked, "It's a different atmosphere here today, because people are settling for a longer time[...] People are coming here to sit with their laptop and work, for example, or read the newspaper for hours." Fire brigade director Reinhard Ries said, "the scale of this bomb is overwhelming. I have never seen anything like it." Likely thousands of unexploded bombs from the era remain across Germany, and reportedly eleven bomb defusal technicians have been killed there since 2000. Devices may become more unstable as time wears on and their fuses age. {{haveyoursay}} == Sources == *{{source |url = http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/03/europe/germany-frankfurt-bomb-evacuation/index.html |title = Frankfurt successfully defuses World War II bomb |author = Laura Goehler, Susannah Cullinane and Dakin Andone |pub = CNN |date = September 3, 2017 }} *{{source |url = http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/wwii-bomb-defused-frankfurt-60000-evacuate/ |title = Experts defuse WWII bomb in Frankfurt after 60,000 ordered to evacuate |author = Rebecca Oh |pub = PBS News Hour |date = September 3, 2017 }} *{{source |url = https://www.reuters.com/article/us-germany-frankfurt-evacua[...]

{{Tunisia}}
A {{w|Roman Empire|Roman}} city that was destroyed over 1,600 years ago by a [[tsunami]] has been found by archaeologists off the Northeastern coast of [[Tunisia]].

Due to favorable weather, scientists found the remains of Neapolis (now {{w|Nabeul}} in Tunisia) after a 7-year long search. Within the "sunken city", they discovered around 100 tanks of {{w|garum}}, a fermented fish condiment.

"It's a major discovery," says Mounir Fantar, head of the mission. It "has allowed us to establish with certainty that Neapolis was a major center for the manufacture of garum and salt fish, probably the largest center in the Roman world."

They have also shown that Neapolis was submerged in the {{w|365 Crete earthquake|AD 365 earthquake}} that damaged other coastal Mediterranean cities. Little was known about the city, because Neapolis sided with {{w|Carthage}} in the {{w|Third Punic War}}, and was punished once it fell under under Roman control.

When asked at a press conference of the possibility of the U.S. attacking North Korea, Trump responded "we'll see." He also criticized South Korea's actions, writing that "South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work". {{w|James Mattis}}, the U.S. Secretary of Defense, said that they would create "a massive military response" to any North Korean threat against the U.S. or its allies.

All three arriving on the capsule, Whitson, fellow top-ten endurance astronaut Fyodor Yurchikhin, and NASA astronaut Jack Fischer, were carried from the capsule in chairs because they were no longer used to Earth's gravity. Because of {{w|Hurricane Harvey}}, which flooded the {{w|Johnson Space Center}} and much of the rest of [[Texas]] the previous week, NASA was unable to send a plane to pick them up at their landing site. Instead the [[European Space Agency]] transported all three to {{w|Cologne, Germany|Cologne}}, [[Germany]]. The astronaut left in command of the ISS, Randy Bresnik, had left them with, "We are in your debt for the supreme dedication that you guys have to the human mission of exploration," and called Whitson in particular an "American space ninja." Whitson's colleagues on the ground said she worked at great speed, continually seeking and performing new experiments. Her team completed work on plant physiology, chemotherapy drugs, and the effects of microgravity on stem cells and human eyes.

Whitson commented, "Any trepidations I might have about returning in the aftermath of a hurricane are entirely eclipsed by all those folks keeping our mission going."

Cinnober Helps B3 Exchange Merge Four Clearing Houses Into One

{{abandoned|September 18, 2017|userspace=}}
{{develop}}Brazilian exchange and clearing house B3 announced it has launched on Monday the equities, corporate bonds, and equities lending markets on its new multi-asset clearing platform, built on Cinnober’s TRADExpress RealTime Clearing system.

The world’s fifth largest exchange by market capitalization had scheduled the migration of the equities clearing house for phase two of B3’s Post-Trade Integration Project that will consolidate B3’s originally four clearinghouses into one integrated entity. Derivatives and OTC products were the first to launch on the new platform in phase one.

'''The industry spread news''' integrated clearinghouse allows B3 to better manage risk by analyzing the risk on entire portfolios, compensating when an investor has opposite positions in the same underlying asset across product groups and markets. Phase 1’s total systemic benefit in termsof margin release amounted to around BRL 20 billion as derivatives and OTC products were migrated to the new clearinghouse. B3 estimates that Phase 2’s effect is BRL 21 billion (USD 6,4 billion) of collateral that was returned to the market with complete preservation of the clearinghouse’s safety system.

Cícero Augusto Vieira Neto, Chief Operating Officer of B3, said: “With that launch, Brazil’s financial and capital markets are obtaining new levels of operating excellence, By integrating the markets in a single clearinghouse, using a real-time clearing solution we’re able to offer more capital efficient post-trade services, improve daily liquidity, and reduce operating costs. With an infrastructure capable of absorbing ever larger volumes, B3 has paved the way for further market growth, and the system’s flexibility lets us respond quickly to the market’s needs.”

“This is a great milestone in a globally pioneering project. “We’re proud to have this monumental role in B3’s post-trade integration project, bringing so much value to the market. Our real-time, multi-asset technology builds safer markets where the participants are kept informed of risk and margin requirements throughout the day. This gives markets that are more efficient, enabling less collateral to be tied up from investors”, commented Veronica Augustsson, CEO of Cinnober.

B3 currently handles one million transactions per day on average on its exchange, with peaks of up to three million transactions per day. The new clearing platform has an initial capacity to manage 10 million transactions per day.

Swansea signs Renato Sanches on loan from Bayern Munich

Today, English {{w|Premier League}} football-club {{w|Swansea City A.F.C.|Swansea City}} completed the {{w|loan (sports)|loan}} signing of [[Portugal|Portuguese]] midfielder {{w|Renato Sanches}} from German club [[Bayern Munich]].

20-year old Sanches won the Golden Boy award last year, but has struggled for form since joining Bayern Munich for £27.5 million from Portuguese side {{w|S.L. Benfica|Benfica}}. He was part of the squad which claimed the {{w|Bundesliga}} title last season but played only 600 minutes for the campaign, amassing a total of 26 appearances.

Sanches will arrive at Swansea after the international break where he will be re-united with manager {{w|Paul Clement}}, who was previously the assistant manager at Bayern Munich. The club have reportedly paid a fee £8 million to sign him for the season, with the deal not including an option to purchase. The player was previously linked with a move to Italian {{w|Serie A}} trio, [[A.C. Milan]], [[Juventus]] and {{w|A.S. Roma}}, as well as French capital-club [[Paris Saint-Germain]] and England's [[Liverpool FC]].

Bayern Munich chairman {{w|Karl-Heinz Rummenigge}} expressed his satisfaction at Sanches' loan to Swansea, saying, "We're delighted we've been able to conclude the load deal with Swansea City. Our goal was for Renato to gain regular match practice at club level in a strong league such as the Premier League".

Sources suggest roughly 27 trillion gallons of rain fell during the storm's six-day stretch across Texas and [[Louisiana]]. In the greater [[Houston]] area alone, at least 130,000 structures were flooded. In the nearby city of {{w|Beaumont, Texas|Beaumont}}, residents still lack clean tap water, as the two pumps that serve the city's water system have failed. East of Houston, potential fires at a damaged chemical plant struck by flooding continue to worry safety officials. As of Friday morning, 42 confirmed deaths have been reported. On Wednesday, public health officials sent out a notice to citizens, indicating, "People should follow all local drinking water safety notices and throw out food that may have spoiled or been contaminated. Because of the risk of {{w|carbon monoxide poisoning}}, gasoline-powered generators should not be used indoors." The city council in Houston held a meeting on Wednesday to discuss relief efforts in the aftermath of the Hurricane Harvey. U.S Senator [[Ted Cruz]] and U.S. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee both spoke during the meeting. Senator Cruz expressed his thanks to both the mayor and council members, and thanked them for their "strong leadership" during the disaster recovery effort. Senator Cruz also expressed thanks to the many first responders who've worked diligently during the relief effort. Houston area Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee also addressed the council and thanked the {{w|U.S Coast Guard}} and {{w|Texas National Guard}} for their efforts. She also pointed out that police and firefighters left their own homes and families to help out in the effort. Ms. Lee also indicated she intends to take steps to "...speed up temporary funding" to help with the relief. She also pointed out that the work done "...is a bi-partisan effort." During the meeting, Mayor of Houston {{w|Sylvester Turner}} said, "We need to move from where we are, to where we need to be." The Trump Administration is now considering reenacting some version of Obama-era regulations that had enacted strict construction standards for areas at risk of flood, which U.S. President [[Donald Trump]] had considered excessive and rolled back August 15. "When drafting new flood standards, the Trump adm[...]

Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Chile president Michelle Bachelet signs bill to legalise same-sex marriage": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indef... {{date|August 31, 2017}}{{LGBT}} On Monday, [[Chile]]an president [[Michelle Bachelet]] signed a bill to legalise {{w|same-sex marriage}}. The bill awaits approval from the two houses of congress to pass, which would also permit {{w|LGBT}} couples to adopt children. [[File:Michelle votó en Colegio Teresiano Enrique de Osso 15-12-2013.jpg|left|thumb|File photo of Michelle Bachelet{{image|[https://www.flickr.com/photos/michellebachelet/ Michelle Bachelet] ([https://www.flickr.com/photos/michellebachelet/11384545856/ flickr]) ([https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/deed.en CC BY 2.0])}}]] Currently, only marriage between a man and a woman is recognised in Chile. Two years ago, Chile legalised civil unions of same-sex couples. The bill was signed at La Moneda Palace, the presidential palace. LGBT activists attended the signing ceremony; at least 200 attendees were expected. Chile is a largely {{w|Roman Catholicism|Roman Catholic}} country, and the Roman Catholic Church has been against the idea of same-sex unions. During the signing ceremony, Bachelet said, "it is not ethical nor fair to put artificial limits on love". She tweeted, {{translated quote|es|Spanish language|Para amar no hay condiciones. Para seguir avanzando hacia un Chile inclusivo, hoy firmé el proyecto de Ley de #MatrimonioIgualitario.|For love there are no conditions. For moving forward towards an inclusive Chile, today I signed bill of #EqualMarriage}} Under Bachelet's presidency, Chile saw changes in the [[abortion]] laws last week. Abortions are now allowed for cases like pregnancy from {{w|rape}}, or conditions endangering the mother's life or where the foetus cannot survive. Chile saw a total ban on abortion in 1989 under {{w|Augusto Pinochet|General Pinochet}}. Bachelet's term is to end in March. Former president and candidate in November's Chilean presidential election [[Sebastián Piñera]] is against the legalisation of same-sex marriage, and said: "There should not be discrimination, but at the same time the essence of an institution such as marriage should be respected, which has always been about conserving the human race". Sex among partners of the same gender has been legal in Chile since 1999. [[Argentina]], [[Brazil]] and [[Uruguay]] are among South American countries where same-sex couples are allowed to marry. {{haveyoursay}} == Sources == *{{source |url = https://www.yahoo.com/news/chile-president-launches-gay-marriage-bill-220913899.html |title =[...]

==The offer==

'''Manchester city''' has made an astonishing offer:
They are willing to pay a huge amount of cash for ''Sanchez'' from '''Arsenal''' + one of their most experienced and best youngster, ''Sterling''.
The amount of cash is unknown but '''Arsenal''' would only accept for a gigantic amount of cash.

==City's point of view==

'''Manchester City''' will probably afford the money but for sure letting ''sterling'' go is not so agreeable.

==Arsenal's point of view==

'''Arsenal''' is in a though spot after not even qualifying in the champions league. Their manager, ''Wenger'', is being hated by the '''Gunners'''' fans so it is thought that he will leave in a near future. Not talking about that they are going to loose one of their best and valuable players.

==Finally==
This transfer if it will conclude it will conclude '''not''' in the near future but something is going to happen for sure.

Body of missing North Dakota woman found wrapped in plastic, police say

2017-08-28T14:57:09Z

Darkfrog24: nope; NOT ready for review {{develop}} {{Crime and law}} {{date|August 30, 2017}} On Tuesday and Wednesday, in a supervised visit at a hospital in {{w|Fargo, North Dakota|Fargo}}, [[North Dakota]], Ashton Matheny was able to meet the baby whom authorities believe is the daughter of his girlfriend, Savanna Greywind, 22, whose body was found wrapped in plastic by kayakers in the {{w|Red River}} on August 27. Greywind's parents visited the child on Wednesday. The baby girl was found in good health with neighbors last Thursday, after Greywind had been missing for eight days. The police have declined to disclose most of the details Greywind's autopsy, but they have said they are treating her death as a homicide. She's my miracle baby," Matheny said. "She was perfect coming in" and "It was the best feeling I've ever had." A DNA test is pending to confirm the child's identity, after which authorities plan to release her into Matheny's custody. Greywind was eight months pregnant when her relatives called the police to report her missing. According to court documents, the police first responded to a call at 2825 9th St. N. #5 in Fargo on August 19 and spoke to the man and woman who lived there, Brooke Crews and William Hoehn, but they did not execute the search warrant until August 24, at which time they found Brooke with a baby girl. Hoehn would later tell police that he had come home one day to find Crews wiping up blood in their bathroom and that she showed him the infant and told him, "This is our baby. This is our family." Crews would tell the police that Greywind had given her the baby. Both told police that the girl is Greywind's daughter, and a DNA test is being performed to confirm the child's identity. Crews and Hoehn are facing several charges, including conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit kidnapping. Greywind worked as a nursing assistant at the Eventide Fargo senior center in West Fargo. According to Matheny, they had planned to name their daughter Haisley Jo. The baby girl found with Crews is currently being cared for by {{w|Cass County, North Dakota|Cass County}} social services. Matheny and Greywind had recently signed an lease on an apartment, where Matheny says they planned to live with their child. Now, Matheny says, he plans to move to the Spirit River Reservation northwest of Fargo to raise his da[...]
