New Delhi: A government-appointed expert panel has recommended for environmental clearance to three redevelopment projects in South Delhi, which have been lurking over the proposal to fell a large number of trees, after they were revised to translocate trees instead of cutting them.The expert appraisal committee (EAC) of the ministry of environment, forests and climate change (MOEFCC) has cleared the revised housing projects in Sarojini Nagar, Netaji Nagar and Kasturba Nagar colonies. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: JavadekarAccording to the revised plans of these colonies, trees will be translocated/ transplanted instead of being cut, which the environmentalists feel will be a “failure”. In Sarojini Nagar, out of 11,913 trees, 3,500 trees will be translocated and the rest will be retained at the project site. In Netaji Nagar, of the 3,906 proposed trees to be felled, 1,600 are to be translocated and the rest retained. In Kasturba Nagar, 405 will be translocated, and 798 retained, as per the EAC meeting minutes. Also Read – Union min Hardeep Singh Puri, Delhi L-G lay foundation stones for various projects in DwarkaThe EAC noted that due to petitions in the Delhi High Court and NGT against redevelopment of seven GPRA (General Pool Residential Accommodation) colonies over felling of trees, including the three colonies which have now been cleared, there was a status quo on these projects since July 2018. “During deliberations, the EAC noted that as per the environmental clearance granted vide dated June 12, 2018, initial activities were taken up but due to writ petitions /PIL filed in the Delhi High Court and National Green Tribunal (NGT) against felling of trees, the High Court had ordered to maintain status quo in redevelopment of all seven GPRA Colonies including Sarojini Nagar on July 2, 2018 and July 26, 2018,” the EAC’s minutes of meeting said. Environment activists, however, said that redevelopment was necessary but translocation was a risky approach. “Redevelopment is needed in Delhi. Translocation is a good move but it has to be carried out cautiously as most of the times it is not successful,” said Centre for Science and Environment’s (CSE) Chandra Bhushan. He added that while granting clearance for such projects, number of trees to be cut should be reduced and planting of more number of trees must be ensured. “They should reduce the number of trees being cut and keep in mind how will they ensure that the new construction has more number of trees,” Bhushan, deputy director of CSE, said. Speaking on similar lines, lawyer and environment activist Vikrant Tongad said translocation of trees was a “failure” because the weather and soil of the national capital was not supportive of this method. “Translocation of trees is a failure in Delhi. It is rarely successful. An expert agency has to be hired for it. But the government has no policy in place. “Delhi’s weather and soil are not supportive of translocation. Delhi has no space for compensatory plantation,” Tongad said. Another activist was of the view that responsibility has to be fixed while translocating trees. “Condition regarding translocation is a welcome step but authorities must fix responsibility of the builder to ensure that all translocated trees sustain,” he said.
TORONTO — The Toronto stock market was sharply higher Thursday as commodity prices advanced amid strong showings in manufacturing indexes in China, the U.S. and Canada.Here are the closing numbersTSX — 12,593.96 +107.32 0.86%S&P 500 — 1,706.87 +21.14 0.25%Dow — 15,628.02 +128.48 0.83%Nasdaq — 3,675.74 +49.37 1.36%The S&P/TSX composite index ran ahead 107.32 points to 12,593.96.Traders also digested big losses handed in by two major gold miners and an announcement from TransCanada Corp (TSX:TRP) that it’s going ahead with its Energy East pipeline project to transport crude from western provinces as far east as Saint John, N.B. TransCanada shares were ahead $1.08 to $48.01.The Canadian dollar was down 0.71 of a cent to 96.64 cents US as the Institute for Supply Management said its U.S. manufacturing index for July came in at 55.4, higher than June’s reading of 50.9 and the best level since April, 2011.Royal Bank’s latest purchasing managers index for the Canadian manufacturing sector came in at 52 for July, down slightly from the June reading of 52.4. Any level above 50 indicates expansion.China’s official purchasing managers index hit 50.3 last month. That is up only slightly from June’s 50.1 reading but economists had expected a modest decline of below 50.However, analysts note that the index has held between 49 and 51 for the past 15 months and is an indication that the days of double-digit Chinese growth aren’t coming back.“And even if it wanted to (grow that much), it can’t because it has an inflation problem,” observed Kash Pashootan, portfolio manager and vice-president at First Avenue Advisory in Ottawa, a Raymond James company.“That inflation challenge that they didn’t have five or six years ago which they have more of now puts downward pressure or sort of a ceiling on the rate on which they can grow.”U.S. indexes also racked up strong gains with the Dow Jones industrials and S&P 500 establishing record highs.The Dow Jones industrials gained 128.48 points to 15,628.02, the Nasdaq composite index was ahead 49.37 points to 3,675.74 while the S&P 500 index climbed 21.14 points to 1,706.87.Markets sentiment was also boosted by Wednesday’s statement from the Federal Reserve, which wrapped up its two-day meeting without any change to its monetary policy that has supported the economy by keeping interest rates ultra-low. That, in turn, has encouraged lending and spending and also boosted stock markets.There has been much speculation over the last two months about when the Fed might start to wind down its US$85 billion of bond purchases every month.Analysts think that the central bank could move on tapering its purchases as early as its next meeting in September.Traders also turned their attention to the release of the U.S. non-farm payrolls report coming out Friday. Economists looked for the data to show that the economy created about 190,000 jobs during July.Commodity prices were mainly higher in the wake of the Chinese data and the energy sector led TSX advancers, up 2.25 per cent with the September crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange up $2.86 to US$107.89 a barrel. Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) rose 88 cents to C$32.71.Imperial Oil Ltd. (TSX:IMO) weighed on the sector as it said its net income was $327 million in the second quarter, a decline from $635 million in the year-earlier period. The main reason cited by the company was a $264-million non-cash charge related to its conversion of a refinery in Dartmouth, N.S., into a fuels terminal. Adjusted earnings were 34 cents per share compared with an analyst estimate of $1 per share and its shares slipped $1.06 to $43.01.The base metals sector climbed 1.84 per cent while copper added to Wednesday’s eight-cent rise, up five cents to US$3.17 a pound. Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) advanced 49 cents to C$24.55 while HudBay Minerals (TSX:HBM) dropped 33 cents to $6.59 as the miner reported deepening losses. Its second quarter loss came in at $52.7 million or 31 cents a share, compared to a loss of $29.6 million or 17 cents a year ago.The industrials sector advanced 1.34 per cent and Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP) improved by $3.66 to $129.79.Shares in transport giant Bombardier Inc. (TSX:BBD.B) dipped one cent to $4.95 as it said it had adjusted net income totalling US$158 million in the third quarter, equivalent to nine cents per share and in line with analyst estimates.Financials were also higher and Manulife Financial (TSX:MFC) rose 36 cents to $18.45.The gold sector was the major decliner, down almost two per cent while December bullion in New York shed $1.80 to US$1,311.20 an ounce. Iamgold Corp. (TSX:IMG) faded 10 cents to C$5.20.Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) posted a US$8.56 billion loss and lowered its quarterly dividend in the wake of lower prices for bullion and copper. Excluding unusual items, Barrick had adjusted earnings of US$663 million or 66 cents in the quarter ended June 30 — better than the analyst estimate but down from 82 cents per share last year and its shares jumped 46 cents to C$17.46.Kinross Gold Corp. (TSX:K) reported a net loss of $3.2 billion for its latest quarter, as it was also hit with a substantial impairment charge related to lower gold price assumptions and suspended its dividend. Adjusted earnings fell to 10 cents a share, beating analyst expectations of seven cents a share. Its shares slipped six cents to $5.28.
During their meeting with Indian leaders, the TNA members also reiterated their position that Sri Lanka was in breach of the Commonwealth charter and therefore, it was “inappropriate” for the Commonwealth Heads of Government of Meeting to be held in Colombo.“But, what India actually does about (participation in CHOGM) is for India to decide,” he said. “If PCs have not worked so far, then why has this discovery not taken place all these years?” the TNA leader asked. “Only when the Tamil people were going to vote did they decided that provincial councils are not required… This shows their malfeasance,” he added. The Lankan government announced last week that it will present an “urgent bill” in Parliament this week to make the Cabinet-approved changes, which will make it impossible to merge two or more provinces. The Tamil-majority northern and eastern provinces were merged following the Rajiv-Jayawardane pact. The merger was declared illegal by the Sri Lankan Supreme Court in 2006.“The Sri Lankan government from the word go was never interested (in devolution of power). The victory in the war meant take it all,” Sumanthiran, an MP and lawyer said.Meanwhile, in a Twitter chat on Wednesday, Sri Lankan President’s secretary Lalith Weeratunga justified the dilution of powers by claiming that provincial councils have not served any purpose. When asked by Indian officials about the situation on ground Sumanthiran said, “The abolition of the 13th amendment is not happening in a vacuum… It’s happening as part of a larger agenda, which has many parts.” India should take “measures” to ensure that the Sri Lankan government does not succeed in robbing provincial councils of certain powers under the 13th amendment, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) said.“We hope that India will take measures to arrest the trend and reverse the process and hold Sri Lanka to its word (of going beyond the 13th amendment),” M A Sumanthiran, member of the six-member Tamil National Alliance delegation, told the New Indian Express. Following their meeting, the External Affairs Ministry issued a strongly-worded statement that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was “dismayed” at the Mahinda Rajapaksa government for trying to remove key powers of the provincial councils just before elections to the Tamil-majority northern provincial council in September.MEA spokesperson further added that such proposals raised “doubts” about the commitment made by the Sri Lankan government to India and international community of reaching a political settlement that would go beyond the 13th amendment. The delegation, led by veteran Sri Lankan Tamil leader R Sampanthan, met with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday evening. They had earlier met with External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid and National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon.

“In war, all are losers,” Mr. Annan told the former soldiers at the Nkumba camp in Ruhengeri, where he was greeted by over 1,200 ex-Interahamwe. The fighters, formerly of the Rwandan Army and militias who were driven into the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) following the 1994 genocide, are being prepared for reintegration into Rwandan society.A lieutenant in the former Rwandan Army addressed the Secretary-General on behalf of the ex-fighters, acknowledging his army’s defeat and expressing the group’s surprise by how well they had been treated by the new Government and by the local community, according to a United Nations spokesman. “[The lieutenant] asked for international support as they reintegrate into Rwandan society and encouraged his fellow combatants still in the DRC to return home,” he said.Earlier in his trip, Mr. Annan called the round-up of 3,000 Rwandan rebels in the DRC “a step in the right direction” because it would allow UN observers to determine their identity and work with the Government of Rwanda for their possible repatriation.”UN observers will be given access to the 3,000 men and, working with our other UN colleagues, make a determination as to who they are, which ones want to come back, and coordinate with the Government for their return,” the Secretary-General told the press yesterday in Kigali, where he was on an official visit Monday and Tuesday. “The mood is much more hopeful, but there are still lots and lots of difficult tasks ahead so we should not relax – we need to persevere.”Prior to visiting Rwanda, Mr. Annan was in the DRC from 1 to 3 September. He held a series of meetings with senior government officials, starting with President Joseph Kabila, and also met with parties involved in the Inter-Congolese Dialogue, as well as Sir Ketumile Masire, the Facilitator of that Dialogue.The Secretary-General also visited Kisangani in the northeastern part of the country, where he was greeted by thousands of people carrying signs and chanting “Demilitarization Now.” He was briefed by UN personnel on the ground, who reported the steady expansion of the UN presence in the region to monitor disarmament and demilitarization.While in Kisangani, Mr. Annan had a working luncheon with Adolphe Onusumba and other leaders of the Rally for Congolese Democracy (RCD). Following that encounter, the UN chief said at a press conference that he had urged the RCD leaders to work together for peace, and for the sovereignty of their territory.”Compromises are needed,” he said. “Peace must be made for the population, for all Congolese. Women and children have suffered a lot.” Mr. Annan encouraged the leaders to include women among their representatives to the Inter-Congolese Dialogue.
Motorists are not stopped if they are caught up to 10 per cent over the limit under current policing guidelines, and they are given an extra 2mph allowance on top of that. Typically offenders are offered speed awareness courses costing around £75-£100 instead of points on their licence, or they are fined if they have recently been on one.Tory MP Sir Greg Knight criticised the zero tolerance approach as he told the paper it would “make criminals of good drivers”. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. “Let’s change the message – we are proud to be law enforcers,” he said. “I do not want the public to be surprised, I want them to be embarrassed when they get caught…”They need to understand the law is set at the limit for a reason. They should not come whinging to us about getting caught. “If booked at 35 or 34 or 33 [in a 30mph zone] that cannot be unfair because they are breaking the law.” Edmund King, president of the AA, said: ‘‘Mr Bangham would appear to want to go back to the days of Dixon of Dock Green. ““Of course speeding is dangerous, and drivers should not speed. But surely it is better to educate motorists rather than just slap a fine on them.“The last thing we want is drivers glued to speedometer 100 per cent of time. We want drivers to concentrate on road ahead and not be worried about going one or two miles over the limit.”There were 1,792 road deaths reported in 2016 – a rise of 4 per cent from 2015 and the highest annual total since 2011, according to the most recent figures available from the Department for Transport. Motorists should be penalised for going just 1mph over the speed limit, Britain’s road policing chief has said as he called for the 10 per cent buffer zone to be scrapped.Chief Constable Anthony Bangham also said speed awareness courses were being overused, and believes offenders should get fines and points on their licence instead.The warning from the roads policing lead for the National Police Chiefs’ Council is significant because many chief constables will take their lead from him.The West Mercia chief’s speech comes after recent figures showed a rise in road deaths, but motoring chiefs warned it may divert drivers’ attention from the road to their speedometers.He declared “enough is enough” at the Police Federation roads policing conference, according to the Daily Mail, as he argued that police had lost sight of their duty and that speeding drivers were no longer afraid enough of being caught.
By Yankuba JallowIn the NIA 9 case of Tuesday June 5th 2018, the Court discharged Yusupha Jammeh in the ongoing criminal trial of former Intelligence Officers.This came about when the lead prosecutor Antouman AB Gaye, filed a motion before the Banjul High Court, presided over by Justice Kumba Sillah-Camara, to discharge Yusupha Jammeh, the fifth accused person in the trial. The prosecution relied on certain provisions of the Law from the Constitution and the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC), to support the application. The Defence Counsels did not object to the application and the Court granted the motion and struck out the name of Yusupha Jammeh from the indictment.The Defence Lawyers continued with the cross-examination of the seventeenth prosecution witness, Kafu Bayo. Lawyer Ibrahim Jallow for the third accused person Sheikh Omar Jeng, said the witness told the Court that at the time of their demonstration, he was the United Democratic Party’s Chairman in Tujereng Village and was part of the organisers of the demonstration.“Did you obtain a permit before embarking on the demonstration?” asked Lawyer Ibrahim Jallow.“Concerning the permit, it was the responsibility of Solo Sandeng to get it and he informed us that he was going to obtain the permit,” Bayo replied.“Did he later inform you whether he had obtained the permit or not?” Jallow questioned.“He informed us that we can come and that things were ready,” responded the witness.“I am putting it to you that you didn’t obtain any permit before you embarked on this demonstration,” said Lawyer Jallow.“I don’t have two minds about Solo Sandeng and I believed in what he told me,” Bayo replied.“When the PIU officers came to West Field, did they ask for your permit,” Jallow asked.“As I mentioned yesterday, they did not ask for anything from us when they arrived, because they started beating us as soon as they arrived. They used their black ‘thing’ to beat people but I was slapped,” Bayo responded.“It is the same PIU officers who beat, arrested and escorted us to the NIA, where we were heavily chained. Some of us were lying down in the pickup whilst some of the PIU officers were standing,” he said.The accused persons in this trial are Yankuba Badjie, the former Director General, Louis Gomez, former Deputy Director, Saikou Omar Jeng (alias Sir Jeng), the former Director of Operations, Haruna Susso, Yusupha Jammeh, Tamba Masireh, Lamin Darboe, Baboucarr Sallah, and Lamin Lang Sanyang.The nine are standing trial on numerous offences ranging from conspiracy to commit felony, assault causing serious bodily harm, murder and making false documents amongst others. However, they all denied any wrongdoing and were remanded in custody.The matter was adjourned till Wednesday June 6th 2018, at 12 noon for continuation of hearing.
Time to give you the latest on Lionel Messi’s injury ahead of next Wednesday’s El Clasico at Camp Nou, he didn’t practice with his teammates today.After FC Barcelona’s 2-2 draw against Valencia last Saturday, the major concern was with Lionel Messi and his physical state due to a muscular problem.During the second half of the game, the Argentine player wasn’t able to continue playing at his usual level after he suffered a blow on his right thigh from one of Valencia’s players and needed to get medical attention on the sidelines.Even after he received treatment on the affected area, Lionel Messi still wasn’t able to return to full beast-mode and the fans at Camp Nour were really worried because of the upcoming Copa del Rey Clasico that’s coming on Wednesday.The Catalan club has been determined to tell the press that he is not going to miss the match, but everybody was expecting him to come on Monday and see if he practiced alongside all of his teammates.Missing this first crucial match against Real Madrid on Wednesday could be catastrophic, Lionel Messi is arguably the most important player they have and his absence has proved to be detrimental for the Catalan club this season.#FCB 🔵🔴 | 🚨🚨🚨💥 Leo Messi no entrena con el grupo. El argentino sigue con molestias en su muslo derecho💥 Dembelé hace trabajo sobre el campo y mantiene opciones de jugar #ElClasico pic.twitter.com/tNQuHah7p4— Diario SPORT (@sport) February 4, 2019The cameras and reporters were waiting for Messi to arrive, the fears were as expected. Lionel wasn’t seen on the practice with the rest of the squad, he was told to remain at the gym throughout the whole session getting the proper treatment for recovery.Messi was spotted getting the proper recovery methods by two different physical therapists, the player did get an important knock on the right thigh and there is still no confirmation about his participation for next Wednesday.A report from Diario Sport suggests that the Catalan club has told everyone in the press that Messi will be 100% ready for El Clasico, but the images of him coming to practice and how worried he look to tell a different story.Messi will try to complete tomorrow’s training alongside his teammates exactly one day before the crucial match, his participation and the evolution of his pain will be the ones that decide whether he will be available for manager Ernesto Valverde or not.The Argentine is eager to play against Real Madrid, one of the favorite victims he’s had throughout his career.On this day in 2004, Messi signed his first professional contract.Top 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.In the 15 years since:663 games581 goals246 assists33 trophies5 Ballons d’Or(via @brfootball) pic.twitter.com/PC18ICGNiE— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) February 4, 2019Dembele is back in full force for ValverdeAs we wait for whatever happens with Lionel Messi during the next couple of days, we have to give you all the good news that manager Ernest Valverde has completely recovered Frenchman Ousmane Dembele from the injury he suffered.To those who didn’t know, the young player missed the last four matches due to an ankle injury he suffered during the La Liga match against Leganes.Ankle injuries can be very tricky for dribblers like Dembele, which is why the manager decided to give him such an extended resting period in order to have him completely recovered for the Copa del Rey semifinals.Regardless of who the Catalan club was facing, it was evident that Dembele’s absence could affect the squad but not as much as Lionel Messi missing this upcoming game.We will keep you all posted on what happens with the Argentine, but chances are that he will get to play against Real Madrid without a problem.A victory for FC Barcelona at Camp Nou is very important if they want to play at the Bernabeu with a slight advantage, especially now that Real Madrid are playing amazing football compared to the start of the season.Most assists in Europe’s top five leagues so far this season:🇦🇷 Lionel Messi (10)🇧🇪 Eden Hazard (10)🇩🇪 Leroy Sané (9)🏴 Ryan Fraser (9)🏴 Jadon Sancho (9)🇩🇪 Joshua Kimmich (9)A fascinating collection. pic.twitter.com/qyA9mgVa55— Squawka Football (@Squawka) February 4, 2019How important is it for Barcelona to have Messi play against Real Madrid on Wednesday?

While rumors suggest we’ll see a new 16.5-inch MacBook Pro this year, a slightly larger size is not enough, if you ask me. Sure, the most recent MacBook Pros have been good-to-great machines, but as a MacBook Pro owner myself — one who’s waiting to upgrade an aging 2012 model (which I just saved with a battery repair)— I’ve still not seen a new MacBook Pro that I’d be excited to buy.So, if Apple wants to make the MacBook Pro coming in 2019 its best models yet, I’ve got some demands. Inspired by a list that former macOS reviewer John Siracusa introduced on his podcast, here’s the top nine things I want to see on the next MacBook Pro, in decreasing order of importance, with the most necessary change first.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

A new, reliable keyboardI would have bought a new MacBook Pro, but I’ve got trust issues with Apple right now, or rather, I’ve got my doubts about its keyboard. Yes, if I’m going to invest over $1,000 in a new laptop, I need to believe I’m buying something that will last. If Apple ditches the troubled butterfly switch mechanism-based keys (which have spawned class-action lawsuits) that it has used since 2006, I’m going to be ready to hit Buy.While that’s mostly because I’m a writer, and I rely on keys to write both professionally and for myself, I don’t think I’m asking for too much. This is a laptop. Its keyboard is what separates it from tablets, and it’s the kind of feature that no PC company has a problem executing well, whereas Apple’s got repeating keys, keys that stick and space bars that fail.MORE: MacBook Pro 2019: What to Expect (and What we Want)If Apple can respect this need, and resolve the keyboard problems that users have yelled about for years, I’m willing to trust it. Everything else below is just icing on the cake.2. More non-Touch Bar optionsWhen I recently took a work trip to cover SXSW, I brought my 15-inch MacBook Pro office laptop with me and found out how easy it is for me to activate the software buttons on that thin OLED screen, since my middle and ring fingers often rest on that row of keys. Unfortunately, if I wanted a MacBook without the touch bar, I’d need to buy the previous-generation 13-inch MacBook Pro, with its now-ancient 7th-gen Intel CPU.I’m not looking to buy the 15-inch MacBook Pro — flying economy class and trying to use that beast on a small folding tray was a nightmare — but I have to admit I feel for those who need that larger size, since that means they’re also stuck with the Touch Bar. And if Apple wants to keep the Touch Bar, it should make it harder to accidentally touch, by adding Force Touch-like clickability.3. The Return of MagSafeThe responsibility to replicate Apple’s most clever design feature, the magnetically attaching MagSafe power adapters, shouldn’t fall to a third-party vendor. That’s the case here, though, since Griffin’s had to create the BreakSafe USB Type-C power cable, which splits apart when too much tension is applied to the cable. Why is this demand so high on the list? This need can be fixed with an additional purchase, but if Apple builds it into the laptop, many more people will be protected.Oh, and Apple can put the detachable magnets on the plug side of the cable, to keep its Type-C ports untouched. The reason behind this may be because putting magnets at the MacBook Pro port could interfere with data transfer.4. At least one USB Type-A portSure, the reversible USB Type-C ports are the future of tech accessories, but what’s wrong with a little respect for the past? I think I can speak for many when I say that when you’re on the go — and why else would you buy a laptop, except for portability — you don’t want to bring a multiport USB Type-C dock or hub with you.But, if you need to use a flash drive or a memory card adapter (more on those below) — the current Type-C-only MacBook Pro has nothing for you, except a demand that you remember to bring a hub. Personally, this issue ticks me off, because I prefer to use Logitech’s fantastic MX Master wireless mouse with its USB adapter — and not over Bluetooth — for its instant pairing.5. Cellular connectivityHow has Apple allowed the PC world to produce laptops with always-on connectivity, while it waits and waits? The company may be waiting for its eventual jump from Intel to ARM-architecture chips, but that hasn’t stopped anyone else.MORE: Apple’s Big ‘Show Time’ Event March 25: Three Things to ExpectAt a moment when the iPad can have a modem, and not everyone’s cellular data plan includes tethering, bringing LTE connectivity to the MacBook Pro to make it a more complete machine is only logical. Maybe Apple is waiting for 5G networks to come online, but I want to get online, anywhere, now.6. SD memory readerEvery time I talk to professional image editors and other media creators about the MacBook Pro, I hear the same lament: “Can’t Apple bring back the SD card reader?” For the uninitiated: high-end cameras use ejectable memory cards to store content, and many high-end laptops provide a slot for the SD memory cards, for users to quickly open files for editing. Even a microSD card slot would be welcome.7. A hardware webcam kill switchApple loves to tout its focus on users’ privacy, right? And while it continues to batten down the hatches on macOS, there’s no reason for the company to not give users an extra way to feel secure.HP’s introduced a kill switch for the Envy 13, Lenovo’s been adding built-in webcam covers, and Huawei’s hiding the MateBook X Pro’s webcam in its keyboard, so it can’t see you unless you let it. Apple’s certainly creative enough to come up with its own solution for this privacy concern, isn’t it?8. Support for Apple PencilThis one’s near the bottom of my list because it feels very unlikely, as much as I want it. If you didn’t know it, macOS and other apps allow you to create signatures by drawing on the touchpad with your finger, but that’s unnatural and imprecise.Also, if Apple plans to bring iPhone and iPad apps to the Mac, it would make sense for its best-in-class stylus to come with those apps. If Apple doesn’t want to make a convertible 2-in-1 laptop, adding Apple Pencil support to the touchpad makes a lot of sense.9. Face IDI’m not sure what it would take for the MacBook Pro to get a Face ID facial-recognition sensor, but it makes all the sense in the world. Infrared webcams with Windows Hello have already demonstrated the value of such a feature in PC laptops — you just sit down in front of your machine, and it unlocks. It’s just that easy. Why is this at number nine? It’s safe to say that Apple will be focusing on thinning away its bezels and the thickness of the laptop, and that means the iPhone and iPad’s Face ID sensors may not be able to find a big enough home in the next MacBook Pro.Credit: Laptop Mag Henry T.

FILE – This June 18, 2009 file photo shows non-commissioned officers from French Air Force taking a break in front of a US Air Force Boeing-made F 15, at Le Bourget, north of Paris, during the 48th Paris Air Show. Just eight miles from the center of Paris, the normally sleepy aerodrome in Le Bourget will undergo its biennial transformation into the center of the world’s $700 billion aerospace and defense industry when it hosts the 51st International Paris Air Show from June 15 to June 21. (AP Photo / Remy de la Mauviniere/File) ___2. WIDE BODIESAirbus’ wide-body A350 was the star of the last Paris Air Show when it made its first flight in 2013. This year Boeing has dominated the wide-body market, notably with its 787 plane, with 152 new orders to Airbus’ 27, according to IHS Aerospace analyst Ben Moores.“While Airbus has a strong wide-body backlog, they do need to be able to demonstrate a couple of strong wide-body orders from mature stable markets to close the gap that has opened up in 2015,” Moores said.Both big manufacturers’ order books are being doped by insatiable demand for single-aisle jets like Airbus’ A320neo and Boeing’s 737 MAX.___3. FUEL PRICEIn recent weeks airlines from budget carrier Ryanair to Middle East behemoth Emirates have all posted earnings that have been boosted by falling oil prices, which have cut fuel bills.The drop was a full 36 percent for American carrier United Airlines, which said fuel costs fell below labor costs as its largest expense in the first quarter.This is expected to drive aftermarket demand for older aircraft, which become more affordable to run when fuel costs drop.Canaccord Genuity says the fact that this hasn’t happened “is one of the key questions on the sector today.” ___4. HIGH-TECHIn the absence of major new aircraft demonstrations that have drawn attention to past shows, the focus at Bourget this year may turn more than usual on the whiz-bang technology presentations put on by some of the 2,000-plus exhibitors from around the world.Among the head-turning items announced so far is armaments maker MBDA’s High Power Laser demonstrator and the six-nation Meteor, an air-to-air missile to enter service later this year that its manufacturer promotes as having “No Escape Zone.”The European Space Agency will have presentations on its Rosetta program, the first spacecraft to orbit and land on a comet. It will also present its “IXV” Intermediate Experimental Vehicle — a space plane that was launched into orbit and returned to Earth earlier this year.___5. CSERIESCanadian aircraft maker Bombardier will make one of the show’s biggest unveilings when it gives the world premiere of its $5.4 billion CSeries program. Analysts say the project is a big risk and cost for the Montreal-based company.The CS100 and CS300 on display are single-aisle planes designed to carry up to 149 people.Bombardier, the world’s third-largest maker of civilian commercial aircraft, has said it hopes to capture half the global market of the 100-to-149-seat planes, and has marketed the CSeries plane as being 20 percent more fuel-efficient than the comparable Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 family of aircraft.

It brings together over 300,000 trade and general visitors for a weeklong extravaganza where the roar of fighter jets overhead mixes with the clink of champagne glasses as executives from the world’s leading airlines and aircraft manufacturers sign deals that can top $100 billion. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies The CSeries is critical to Bombardier Aerospace, which has spent years designing the advanced-technology jet, but has faced development delays and what the company called “an engine-related incident” on one of the aircraft during ground maintenance testing last year.___Follow Greg Keller on Twitter at https://twitter.com/Greg_KellerCopyright © The Associated Press.

Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Comments Share Here are five things to look out for at this year’s show, opening to industry professionals Monday and to the public on June 19:___1. ORDERS RACEAirbus and Boeing will face off in an unofficial but still closely watched competition for contracts between the European and American plane makers. Demand is being driven by airlines eager for new-generation, energy-efficient planes — although the recent steep drop in the price of oil may impact upon that calculation.At the Farnborough International Airshow last year, European jet maker Airbus clinched orders and commitments for 486 aircraft valued at $75 billion. Boeing said it secured business worth $40.2 billion for 201 airplanes. It was the second year in a row Airbus beat Boeing.Analysts at brokerage Canaccord Genuity predict firm orders of around 300 aircraft will be signed by the two companies in total — a relatively low figure compared to recent years when demand was driven by new aircraft introductions. Both major manufacturers have set modest expectations for new orders this year.Airbus’ 20-year outlook is for 31,350 new passenger aircraft and freighters worth $4.6 trillion, while Boeing’s equivalent forecast is for 36,770 aircraft worth $5.2 trillion.

Las Vegas Sands and Sands China Ltd executives along with international businessman David Beckham revealed more details about The Londoner Macao, the British-themed reimagining of the company’s existing Sands Cotai Central – Cotai Strip integrated resort.The new project, which will open progressively over 2020 and 2021, will join The Venetian Macao and The Parisian Macao as the Cotai Strip’s ‘must-see’ properties.Exuding classic British luxury, The Londoner Macao will incorporate four world-class hotel brands: the new The Londoner Hotel (previously Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central), alongside existing properties Conrad Macao, Cotai Central, Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel, Cotai Central and The St. Regis Macao, Cotai Central.“We could not be more excited about the development of The Londoner Macao,” said Las Vegas Sands President and Chief Operating Officer Robert Goldstein. “Sands have invested heavily here because we believe wholeheartedly that Macao’s complete arrival as one of the world’s greatest tourism and business destinations is just on the horizon. The Venetian and The Parisian have each become ‘must-see’ destinations on the Cotai Strip and we have every confidence that The Londoner will be every bit their equal. The power of these three iconic integrated resorts working in tandem will create a combination of leisure and business tourism amenities unrivalled in Asia and Europe and on par with the success of Las Vegas,” he concluded.The Londoner Macao represents Sands’ latest collaboration with David Beckham, who will be working with the interior design team to bring his vision and style to the very exclusive top floor suites at The Londoner Hotel, representing his first foray into this design field. Beckham, who is known around the world as a British sporting icon and international businessman, has been a Sands Resorts Macao global ambassador for some time, hence was also the ideal choice when it came to The Londoner Macao.Sands also unveiled a new micro-movie for social media starring David. The first in a series of short vignettes shot in and around London, the movie features Beckham suggesting classic British icons that should be present in new The Londoner Macao.The Londoner Macao will feature authentic recreations of classic British landmarks, with an exterior facade modelled on the world-famous Palace of Westminster and the Houses of Parliament complete with 96 metre Elizabeth Tower and iconic clock face.Interiors will offer a combination of grandeur and comfort, with luxurious British design extending to the spacious Crystal Palace atrium centrepiece, restaurants, retail offerings and entertainment. These include more than 20 dining options, with several new restaurant concepts including an authentic British style gastro-pub by Gordon Ramsay and a new Thai restaurant – The Mews. Guests and visitors can enjoy 200 stores at Shoppes at The Londoner (previously Shoppes at Cotai Central), 34,300 sq m of meeting and convention space, three spas and four health clubs.New entertainment at The Londoner Macao will include an exciting whole-body, fully immersive live virtual reality experience suitable for all ages. In addition, visitors can also enjoy British-themed Streetmosphere shows such as the famous Changing of the Guards and daily retail parades featuring much-loved characters from British history, culture and literature.When fully completed, the integrated resort will also offer a new 6,000 seat arena versatile enough to accommodate everything from live entertainment to popular sporting events and conferences.“The Londoner Macao, with its world-class luxury suites, new dining and spectacular entertainment, will offer guests and visitors alike another reason to visit Macao. The launch marks yet another milestone in the company’s efforts to support Macao’s development as a world centre of tourism and leisure and it also shows that Sands is fully committed to supporting Macao’s vision as a leader in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area,” said Dr Wilfred Wong, President of Sands China Ltd.David Beckham commented, “London is an incredible city and one that I am proud to call my home. To be able to work so closely with the Sands team to bring the elements of London that I love to the city of Macao is a wonderful opportunity. Interior design is a real passion for me. To be involved in the design process and help shape this project is another important step in our long-standing partnership with Sands Resorts Macao. I can’t wait to welcome everyone to come and experience what we are creating here – a little bit of London in Macao.”
