The Veterans Day storm brought below-freezing temperatures to the region, and today’s forecast calls for freezing rain and the possibility of snow. The windstorm brought trees and tree limbs onto houses, roadways and power lines and is likely to continue into Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. The wind even uprooted a “do not enter” sign, which struck a woman walking near the state Highway 500 exit ramp to Andresen Road, said Washington State Patrol Trooper Will Finn. The woman, who had a cut on her face and bruised ribs, was sent to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center. With schools and government offices closed today, many hunkered down at home waiting for the windy weather to pass. The day started with a large outage in Camas around 6:50 a.m. that was mostly repaired by 9 a.m. By 6 p.m., a total of 39,119 customers had experienced outages throughout the day, said Clark Public Utilities spokeswoman Erica Erland. Some areas saw power restored, only to lose power again. A half-dozen crews were working nonstop Tuesday, responding to the outages — nearly 100 in all by Tuesday evening. A tree that damaged a high-voltage transmission line caused the largest outage, leaving 10,636 customers in downtown Vancouver temporarily without power. The Columbian and the Clark County Jail were among those that were affected and used backup generators. Even Clark Public Utilities’ facility was on a generator at one point during the day.
(NOTE: McDonald’s is located at 212 Main Street in Wilmington.)CHICAGO, IL — Last month, McDonald’s announced it now sustainably sources 84 percent of its McCafé coffee for U.S. restaurants – and 54 percent of all McCafé coffee worldwide – as part of its efforts to protect coffee from the adverse effects of climate change. This announcement marks significant progress from when the company first announced its goal in 2014 to sustainably source 100 percent of its coffee worldwide by 2020, with some markets having already reached that goal.The coffee crop is highly vulnerable to rising temperatures. In fact, one study showed that climate change has the potential to cut the world’s coffee-growing area in half by 2050. In March 2018, McDonald’s became the first global restaurant company in the world to address global climate change by setting a target approved by independent experts to significantly reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.“We know many people enjoy coffee as part of their daily routine, and, at McDonalds, we are taking meaningful steps to support farmers protecting it from climate change,” said Townsend Bailey, Director, U.S. Supply Chain Sustainability, McDonald’s. “As we continue on our journey to build a better McDonald’s, we are using our size and scale to implement significant changes that are important to our customers, our people and the environment.”Key Sourcing PartnershipsTo help protect coffee from climate change, McDonald’s has partnered with organizations – like Rainforest Alliance, Conservation International, Solidaridad, COSA, and Fair Trade – in support of the farmers in their supply chain, their communities and their land. The McDonald’s system has invested millions since 2012 to train roughly 20,000 farmers on sustainable practices ranging from reforestation to water quality so they can continue to steward their land.In 2016, McDonald’s launched its McCafé Sustainability Improvement Platform (SIP), in partnership with Conservation International. McCafé SIP is a framework guiding the coffee supply chain in sustainable sourcing, as well as an investment in coffee growers and their communities over the long term. McDonald’s is also part of Conservation International’s Sustainable Coffee Challenge, which aims to make coffee the world’s first sustainable agricultural product. United with other key industry players — retailers, roasters, producer groups, industry associations and non-governmental organizations — McDonald’s is helping make the changes needed to transform the industry.“For people to enjoy coffee in the future, we need to do our part to take care of it now,” said Raina Lang, Director, Sustainable Coffee Markets at Conservation International. “Through our partnerships with McDonald’s and across the industry with the Sustainable Coffee Challenge, the coffee sector is making strides in protecting and strengthening coffee production around the world.”Beyond coffee beans, McDonald’s USA is proud to work with US dairy farmers to source its McCafé dairy needs. By 2020, nearly all dairy products served in the U.S. will come from farms that participate in the Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM) Program, which strives to hold its members to high standards of animal care, and environmental and antibiotic stewardship.Ongoing CommitmentToday’s sustainability progress announcement for McCafé coffee is the latest update on building a better McDonald’s. Previous commitments and progress milestones include recently announcing that McDonald’s classic burgers – including the hamburger, cheeseburger, double cheeseburger, McDouble, Quarter Pounder with Cheese, double Quarter Pounder with Cheese and Big Mac – have no artificial preservatives, no artificial flavors and no added colors from artificial sources (our pickle contains an artificial preservative, so skip it if you like). Additionally, McDonald’s has also pledged to transition to cage-free eggs in US and Canada by 2025 and by the end of 2020, McDonald’s has also committed to sourcing a portion of its beef from its top 10 beef-sourcing countries from suppliers participating in sustainability programs aligned with the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef principles and criteria.

Cook Inlet oil platforms are visible from shore on Dec. 13, 2016 near Kenai, Alaska. (Photo by Rashah McChesney/Alaska’s Energy Desk)The State of Alaska held a lease sale for offshore acreage in Cook Inlet today, with modest results.Listen nowThe state offered 2.6 million acres, but just one company — Hilcorp — bid on 16,636 acres.Hilcorp is currently the biggest oil and gas producer in Cook Inlet. The Texas-based company will pay $298,800 for the additional acreage it picked up at the sale. Hilcorp was also the sole company bidding during last year‘s state oil and gas lease sale for Cook Inlet.“We’d always like to see a larger lease sale and more money come into the state,” Kyle Smith, leasing section chief with the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, said. “With the Cook Inlet, the gas demand has mostly been met through 2023, 2024 through existing gas contracts. And the incentives aren’t quite what they were years ago.”Faced with dwindling funds, the legislature phased out tax credits for oil and gas companies in Cook Inlet over the past two years.Smith added that the sale also shows most companies in Cook Inlet are focusing investments on producing from areas they’ve already leased, rather than exploring in new areas.
The house at Mirpur suspected to a militant hideout. Photo: Prothom AloMembers of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) recovered three bodies from a room of a suspected militant hideout at Mirpur’s Mazar Road in the city on Wednesday afternoon, reports news agency UNB.Mufti Mahmud Khan, RAB Director (Legal and Media), came up with the information while talking to reporters at the spot.RAB personnel entered the militant den and found three charred bodies, Mufti said, adding they could not identify the bodies immediately.Earlier, in the day law enforcers resumed their operation around 9:30 am at the militant den after overnight massive explosions and exchange of gunfire.Fire fighters rushed to the spot as a fire broke out in the hideout after the militants commenced a daring counterattack of bomb explosions and gunfire against the law enforcers on Tuesday night.Mufti Mahmud Khan said the militants carried out three massive explosions inside the building around 9:45pm on Tuesday followed by three more blasts which led to a fire, leaving four RAB men injured with splinters.“It might be chemical firing,” he said, adding that casualties could be known after entering the building once the fire is doused.Suspected militant Abdullah agreed to surrender along with his two wives, two children and two associates between 7:30 pm and 8pm, Mahmud told a press conference in front of the building on Tuesday evening.He said they earlier asked Abdullah, son of late Mir Yusuf Ali of Chuadanga district, to surrender when he sought time for taking the decision. “We gave him time. Few minutes before the dusk fell, he informed us that he’ll surrender along with his family members and associates,” he said.As per his commitment, Abdullah sent his wives—Nasreen and Fatema—and two children to the balcony. But later he didn’t surrender.Meanwhile, Inspector General of Police AKM Shahidul Hoque visited the spot in the morning.As part of the security arrangement, the law enforcers evacuated all the residents from the building and adjacent ones.Earlier, Abdullah’s mentally challenged sister Meherunnesa came out of the house.Tipped off, a RAB team cordoned off the six-storey building on the south side of Martyred Intellectuals’ Graveyard at 12 am on Tuesday.Earlier, police arrested two suspected militants conducting a drive in Tangail district and got information about Abdullah from the arrestees.Locals also said that the building owned by Habibullah Bahar Azad has five flats on its each floor. The homeowner had been living on the 2nd floor.RAB Director General Benazir Ahmed said militant Abdullah got involved in militancy in 2005 and he had been carrying out his activities under the cover of his business of IPS, UPS, fridges and refrigerators. He deposited huge acid, petroleum and explosives, said the RAB DG.
Former National Security Advisor General Mike Flynn (L), Senior Advisor Jared Kushner (2L) and US President Donald Trump ® at the beginning of a meeting on cyber security in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, DC. AFP file photoThe probe into Russia’s role in the US election pierced the innermost circle of the White House Saturday, with reports that Donald Trump’s son-in-law sought a secret communications line with Moscow—the most damning allegation yet from the scandal.The latest furor was stirred up after the Washington Post reported late Friday that Jared Kushner—arguably Trump’s closest White House aide, and husband to the president’s eldest daughter Ivanka—made a pre-inauguration proposal to the Russian ambassador to set up a secret, bug-proof link with the Kremlin.Kushner, 36, even suggested using Russian diplomatic facilities in the United States to protect such a channel from monitoring, The Post said, quoting US officials briefed on intelligence reports.The revelation, if confirmed, would raise new questions about the Trump team’s relationship with the Russians, who US intelligence agencies say tried to sway the November election in Trump’s favor.News reports said the White House, reeling from the explosive developments in the long-running Russia saga, is creating a new rapid-fire communications unit to respond to the controversy, led by Kushner, senior presidential adviser Steve Bannon and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.‘Naive’ or ‘Sinister’White House officials declined to comment on Saturday, ahead of Trump’s return to Washington following his first overseas trip.“We’re not going to comment on Jared, we’re just not going to comment,” said Gary Cohn, Trump’s chief economic adviser, during a press conference in Italy as a G7 summit wound down.National Security Advisor HR McMaster refused to talk about the allegations but said that in general, “We have backchannel communication with a number of countries. What that allows you to do is communicate in a discrete manner.”“I would not be concerned about it,” he added.But a former head of the US National Security Agency harshly condemned Kushner’s alleged effort to set up a secret communications line, saying if it’s true, it would reveal a dangerous degree of ignorance or naivete.“What manner of ignorance, chaos, hubris, suspicion, contempt would you have to have to think that doing this with the Russian ambassador was a good or appropriate idea?” Michael Hayden said on CNN.He said he leaned toward “naivete” as an explanation, though he did not find it comforting.Malcolm Nance, a retired naval officer and expert on terrorism and intelligence, said: “This is now sinister. There is no way this can be explained, from the intelligence perspective.”“That is indicative of espionage activity of an American citizen that is working in league with a hostile government,” he told MSNBC.The Washington Post said Kushner’s secret communications proposal was made December 1 or 2 at Trump Tower in New York, according to intercepts of Russian communications that were reviewed by US officials.Michael Flynn, who was Trump’s national security adviser for just 24 days before being fired amid questions about meetings he held with the Russian ambassador, was also present, the newspaper reported.The Post said the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergei Kislyak, was surprised by the future White House aide’s idea of a secret channel and passed it on to the Kremlin.The New York Times said the channel was never established.Trump will return to Washington to face a cascade of other worries related to the Russia probe in the coming days, including expected testimony by fired former FBI director James Comey before a Senate committee.In another development, The New York Times reported Friday that Oleg Deripaska, a Russian once close to Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort, has offered to cooperate with congressional bodies probing alleged Russian election meddling.Not yet a ‘target’Kushner boasts an enormous portfolio of domestic and international responsibilities underscoring his importance as Trump’s chief aide-de-camp, despite having no experience in politics before the 2016 White House race.He is the only person currently in the White House known to be under investigation.The Post and other media have been careful to note that their sources did not say Kushner was a “target” of the investigation, nor that he was accused of any wrongdoing. Labeling him a “target” would suggest Kushner was a main suspect of the investigation.But there have been a number of as yet unexplained contacts—during last year’s presidential campaign and afterward—between other top Trump aides and senior Russian officials, including Flynn, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Manafort and others.The investigation is being led by Robert Mueller, a respected former FBI director who was given broad powers to pursue the case as a special counsel after Trump abruptly fired Comey on May 9.The Senate and House Intelligence committees also are investigating, but not with an eye to bringing criminal charges.Former CIA director John Brennan revealed this week that intelligence chiefs had been looking into suspicious contacts between Trump campaign associates and Russian officials since mid-2016.Trump has denied any collusion with Russia, calling the probe “the greatest witch hunt” in American political history.

Truly, we all live in a Pokemon world. Two new Pokemon games are coming to the 3DS this fall along with the fighting game spin-off Pokken Tournament on Nintendo Switch. A true Pokemon RPG for Switch is on the horizon, and mobile game Magikarp Jump is the Game of the Year. But in terms of sheer impact and financial success, the modern Pokemon game to beat is probably still the augmented-reality phenomenon Pokemon Go.While the game will most likely never be as ubiquitous as it was during its debut last summer, the developers at Niantic are certainly trying to give players good reasons to return. This summer Pokemon Go evolves with new gyms and raid battle systems.I’d argue that Pokemon Go’s initial shallowness (along with its focus on first generation Pokemon) is actually what allowed it to be such a mainstream hit. However, Pokemon fans have been asking for deeper gameplay mechanics from the game for a while now, and this upcoming update should push the game in that direction.Soon, you will only be able to put six Pokemon in a real-world gym, and each must be a different species of Pokemon. But you can determine the order in which challengers battle your monsters. Like PokeStops, gyms will also now provide items as well as unique badges. As Pokemon in a gym lose battles their Combat Points (CP) decrease due to the new “motivation” stat. Teammates can feed friendly monsters berries to raise motivation but once the meter runs out the Pokemon abandons the gym and returns to its trainer.Raid battles, meanwhile, are limited-time co-op events. Once triggered, players can team up with up to 19 other friends or strangers nearby to battle one powerful Pokemon before time runs out, like the fight against Mewtwo in Times Square(?) in the original Pokemon Go trailer. Win and you can use special Premiere Balls to try and catch the raid boss. Sounds like a great way to introduce more legendary Pokemon into the game (as well as make more real-world deals by turning the local Applebee’s or whatever into a “sponsored gym”). Other prizes include special berries and candies and TMs for easier catching and nurturing and teaching Pokemon better moves.To prepare for the update, Niantic is shutting down existing gyms. But they’ll soon return in the all-new, all-different Pokemon Go. In the meantime, improve your trainer skills with our Pokemon Go strategy guide.Let us know how we’re doing Battle Team Rocket in New ‘Pokemon Go’ Update‘Pokemon Sleep’ Puts Pocket Monsters in Your Dreams Stay on target

“Den of Thieves” is a convolutedly narrated heist film that involves concepts from other superior crime thrillers of the past. With a handful of stylish shootouts, chase sequences and other confrontations bridged together by a lacklustre screenplay, this over-the-top crime saga is a predictable derivative saga of cops and robbers.The film begins with some onscreen graphics informing us about some true-life statistics about bank robberies in the US. Apparently, a bank robbery occurs every 48 minutes there. Given this information, one expects that the opening sequence in Los Angeles would give us an adrenaline-packed thrilling insight into one such robbery. But instead, we witness a run-of-the-mill heist of an armoured truck by a very well armed gang of thieves. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThis dacoity is led by Ray Merriman (Pablo Schreiber) a one-time special forces soldier and criminal mastermind and cohorts including Enson (Curtis “50 Cents Jackson) and Bosco (Evan Jones).Despite the robbers’ military precision, there are fatalities on both sides. And to the amusement of his colleagues, Ray mentions, “We are cop killers now.”The case catches the attention of the Major Crimes unit of the local Sheriff’s department, led by Nick Flanagan (Gerard Butler) who is also known as “Big Nick” among his co-workers. While surveying the scene of the crime, we learn that he is at loggerheads with the head of FBI. At the same time, he is wary and anxious as he gravely says, “We’re dealing with a different animal here, boys.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveTo top it all, Nick has a troubled personal life. He tells us that he and his unit are bad guys and there’s no reason to doubt that claim.The battle of wills between Ray and Nick aspires an epic level, but the characters exhibit far less real respect for one another. The bad blood incorporates a personal element where both Ray and Nick casually indulge in sex with the same person.Personal foibles apart, Ray and his team eye the Los Angeles branch of the Federal Reserve. In order to succeed in their endeavour, they rope in a genial bartender Donnie (O’Shea Jackson Jr) who is skilled in speed racing. But Nick who tries to stay a step ahead of Ray, roughs up Donnie who knows the consequences of turning into an informer.The plot takes a convoluted route. It oscillates back and forth between the two sides, offering would-be poignant exchanges. It teases the audience unnecessarily with personal issues and wastes precious time that could have been spent on the tense heist and its explosive aftermath, which is where the viewer wants to be. The execution in these moments is thrilling, although muddied by a final plot twist. There is not much time spent on motives or on explaining the ridiculous twist at the end. Also, parts of the film remind you of scenes in “The Usual Suspects” and the 1995 released film “Heat”.As for the performances, despite packed with testosterone-fuelled swagger and tough guy posturing by its ace-cast, the poorly developed characters are its undoing. Without much meaningful character development, the lines between heroes and villains blur. While the film majorly focuses on Butler and Pablo Schreiber who deliver compelling performances, the others too have their moments of onscreen glory.Though the story lacks in originality, it displays more brawn than brains and excels in its production values. The production designs, cinematography, editing and background-score are all of ace quality.
Kolkata: The city on Tuesday witnessed eastern India’s first green corridor which was facilitated to ferry a critical patient to the hospital from the Calcutta airport after he suffered a stroke in Uttar Pradesh.The patient was brought to the city by an air-ambulance on Tuesday morning. Both the Bidhannagar and Kolkata police made necessary arrangements to set up a green corridor in the city to ensure a smooth passage for the patient. The patient, Samarjit Das (69), a resident of Sil Lane in Tangra went to Manasarovar with his family members a few days ago. On his way back to the city, Das had suffered ischemic stroke and pneumonia in Uttar Pradesh.

Another ambulance was waiting outside the airport with the police escort. The patient was taken to a private hospital in Mallick Bazar within 23 minutes. The ambulance was however caught in a traffic jam for nearly five minutes at Hudco More before it finally reached the hospital around 11.38 am. Green Corridor was facilitated by Bidhan Nagar police as well as Kolkata Police in their respective jurisdiction. The patient was admitted to the hospital and a surgery was conducted in the hospital later in the day. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateAccording to the hospital sources, patient suffered a major stroke due to his visit to a high-altitude area. As he is an elderly patient, he could not withstand acute shortage of oxygen. A city-based doctor said elderly people suffering from heart related ailments and sugar are often prone to heart attacks. The actual cause of the heart attack in case of Das is yet to be confirmed. The victim’s family members told the hospital doctors that he had no history of heart ailments or sugar. After performing various tests on the patient, the doctors felt the need of an immediate surgery. His condition is stated to be critical. The doctors thanked the police administration for creating the green corridor which helped the patient to reach the hospital on time. It may be mentioned that the city had witnessed a series of green corridors earlier also but in those case organs were transported from one place to another. But, this is for the first time in the state’s history, a critical patient was brought to the hospital.

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 7 Comments Share Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks follows the second half of an NFL football game against the Kansas City Chiefs in Kansas City, Mo., Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018. (AP Photo/Ed Zurga) The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo The Cardinals kept the game within a score until the fourth quarter when rookie quarterback Josh Rosen threw a pick on a screen pass that set up a four-play, 31-yard dive for a Chiefs touchdown.Sunday’s game marked a resurgence of running back David Johnson, who had been a shell of himself so far this season. He finished with 98 yards rushing on 21 carries and a touchdown and caught seven balls for 85 yards and a receiving touchdown.Related LinksCardinals’ failures proof AZ has become kindergarten of pro sportsRapid Reactions: Cardinals fall to Chiefs despite Johnson’s big gamePatrick Mahomes throws 2 TD passes as Chiefs beat CardinalsStanding at 2-7 and a likely failure to get into the playoffs, Wilks and the Cardinals are not focused on next year. Nonetheless, with seven games remaining, the Cardinals are projected to have a top five pick in next year’s NFL Draft.“My mind is not really on draft picks right now,” Wilks said. “I’m trying to do everything I can to win football games.“I’m not looking to say, ‘Okay, we’re going to be in the top five.’ That to me is a loser’s mentality.
