PM Minnis Urges Disaster Managers to Develop New Mindsets and Protocols in

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, December 6, 2017 – Nassau – The 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season ended November 30 as the seventh most active season covering 166 years.   The season produced 17 named storms of which 10 became hurricanes, including six major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5) and was also the most active season since 2005.   The statistics are based on the Accumulated Cyclone Energy index, which measures the combined intensity and duration of the storms during the season and is used to classify the strength of the entire 2017 hurricane season.   And it could get worse going forward.Addressing the Opening Session of the week-long 10th Comprehensive Disaster Management (CDM) Conference currently underway in New Providence, Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Hubert A. Minnis said various climate models suggest that damage from natural disasters have increased sharply.  Such damage, the Prime Minister said, is likely to worsen, especially from flooding.   The underlying culprit — climate change as a result of global warming.“The National Wildlife Foundation in the United States notes:  ‘The latest science connecting hurricanes and global warming suggests more is yet to come,’” Prime Minister Minnis said.“Professor Kerry Emmanuel of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology notes: ‘Global warming is tangibly increasing hurricane risks around the world.’“Tropical Storms,” Prime Minister Minnis continued, “are likely to bring higher wind speeds, more precipitation, and bigger storm surge in the coming decades.”Prime Minister Minnis said Small Island Developing States (SIDS) such as The Bahamas and other low-lying, coastal countries of the Caribbean and the Pacific region, are at great risk of climate change.“We must develop new mindsets and protocols in this era of Super Storms,” Dr. Minnis told conference delegates, many of them from the Caribbean and Pacific regions in addition to their international counterparts.“We are constantly reminded that the countries in our region are located in one of the most hurricane prone areas in the world.   The risks we face threaten our fragile economies, and demand that we have in place, sound, disaster risk management systems.“We must continue to build disaster resilient communities through partnerships for resilience.   As a region, we must continue to press through CARICOM, the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS), the United Nations and in other international fora for the promised assistance from Developed countries to help countries in our region to mitigate the effects of climate change, overwhelmingly caused by Developed countries.”Prime Minister Minnis said as a low-lying, coastal state, The Bahamas has undertaken a number of initiatives aimed at mitigating the effects of climate change and its byproducts.“Our NEMA team has met with the CDEMA Coordinating Unit to discuss the Country Work Programme and its alignment with national goals identified in the regional CDM Strategy.“Our priorities are mapping of vulnerable areas and community preparedness. We are building capacity in our Family islands and working to bring communities to a point where they can respond as quickly as possible in the immediate aftermath of a disaster, including logistical capacity.”By: Matt Maura (BIS)Photo caption:  Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon.

Galaxy Fold was rushed Samsungs next move matters most

first_img 36 Photos Android Update TCL’s DragonHinge lets phones bend and fold Mobile Tablets Phones Foldable Phones The key to making phones stronger is bendable glass, which won’t be ready for a few years. CNET got an exclusive look at Corning’s bendable glass, which, even if fragile, is still expected to offer a degree of protection over the Galaxy Fold and Mate X’s plastic screens.Observers were mostly concerned about the “ugly” crease you see when you unbend a foldable phone into its full-screen mode, and if this could lead to wear and tear over hundreds of thousands of bends. The crease either appears as a ridge or a valley depending on if the larger screen unfolds on the inside or outside of the device. For example, the Galaxy Fold opens like a book to reveal an interior 7.3-inch display, where the Mate X’s 8-inch screen acts more like the book cover that wraps around the outside of the frame.A plastic screen prone to scratches on its softer surface was another issue, especially for outward-bending models like the Mate X, where more of the delicate screen is exposed. 60 Photos The future of foldable phones is murky even now. Angela Lang/CNET Note: Samsung has announced it will relaunch the Galaxy Fold in September.Even before Samsung’s mobile chief, DJ Koh, admitted that he “pushed [the Fold] through before it was ready”, massive delays to the first major foldable phone slammed the brakes on what was once billed as nothing short of a phone revolution. In the 67 days since the Galaxy Fold was initially slated to sell on April 26, Samsung’s admission (some may say it stops short of a full apology) adds heft to fears that the foldable phones, which are part phone, part tablet, are more gimmick than revelatory gadget. What happens next is crucial to Samsung’s foldable future, and could help or hurt the chances of unreleased foldable devices from other brands.Foldable phones have been heralded as the next big thing because of their ability to double the device’s display size with a large, bendable screen. They also aim to shake up design at a time when phone sales have waned amid lackluster upgrades. Samsung (and Huawei) wanted their Galaxy Fold (and Mate X) to prove how exciting and successful a foldable phone could be. But after the screens on some reviewers’ test phones kept breaking (ours didn’t), Samsung delayed the Fold. With only a mea culpa from Koh and not a whisper of a new release window for the Galaxy Fold, there’s no telling if Samsung will be able to recapture the energy it inspired at the Galaxy Fold’s flashy launch Feb. 20. Anyone who cares about the fate of foldable phones is suspended in Galaxy Fold limbo.”I do admit I missed something on the foldable phone, but we are in the process of recovery,” Koh told The Independent during an interview in Seoul.For its part, Samsung might well be shifting gears to announce the Galaxy Note 10 at its next Unpacked launch event in New York on Aug. 7. Perhaps we’ll hear more about the Galaxy Fold then. 10:12 0 Mate X foldable phone: Here’s what it’s really like to use null Share your voice In the Galaxy Fold’s case, where Gorilla Glass protects the interior screen when the phone is closed, I still noticed indentations and scratches on the plastic cover material after just seven days. Some of the Fold’s issues arose because reviewers peeled off a protective layer that wasn’t intended to come off, which made the phone immediately stop working. Samsung has reportedly fixed these problems but hasn’t shared when it plans to put the Galaxy Fold on sale.What about the US ban against Huawei?Some have wondered if the US government’s move to blacklist Huawei from its US partners plays a role in the Mate X’s launch date. For example, Huawei has been cut off from any US-based business supplying software (e.g. Android), components and even consulting services across all of Huawei’s businesses.Although the ban received a temporary reprieve that allows Huawei to support current products, followed by a further easing of restrictions, it’s uncertain if the Mate X will be able to access every component and scrap of software it needs to compete against the Galaxy Fold. The Mate X was announced before President Trump signed the executive order against Huawei, but has never received a firm release date. If Huawei needs Google’s support for foldable phones and Android apps to sell the Mate X outside of China, that could certainly influence its decision to wait. The Wall Street Journal reported that sourcing parts wasn’t an issue, according to Huawei SVP Vincent Peng, but that Huawei and Google are still discussing the license over Android apps.Android Q supports foldable phones. Google Don’t give up on foldable phones yetIt’s too soon to declare foldable phones dead. Samsung and Huawei still plan to launch an improved Galaxy Fold and the Mate X, respectively, and Google declared support for foldable designs in May at its annual Google I/O conference for developers. That means app makers are already optimizing their software to work on foldable phones.While off to a sputtering start, these companies have invested millions into foldable designs. It’s a gamble that they’re counting on to pay off in the long run.Other phone brands also have foldable plans. Apple, LG, TCL and Oppo have either filed patent applications for foldable designs or announced that they’re already at work. Rumors are ripe for a foldable Moto Razr comeback design that will modernize the beloved flip phone. Google Huawei Samsung Our Galaxy Fold didn’t break. Here’s what’s good and… Samsung isn’t the only brand allegedly wrapped up in foldable phone delays. Huawei is said to have delayed its own foldable Mate X to “improve” the screen, the Wall Street Journal reported, though there’s some question over whether Huawei slated the Mate X for “June” or for “summer”, which officially ends September 21, in the northern hemisphere.Samsung and Huawei are currently the world’s largest and second-largest phone brands, respectively. All eyes are on them. Cancel sales and other phone-makers could also scuttle their plans in the hopes of dodging poor sales and public ridicule. Launch the phones late, but without issue, and careful rivals may be encouraged to introduce foldable phones, too. How well these devices do when they come into buyers’ hands may decide whether foldable phone designs ultimately fail or succeed. Samsung and Huawei declined to comment on this story.huawei-mate-x-hands-on-mwc-2019-19The Mate X’s screen bends outward, which means the plastic display covers the exterior of the phone frame. Andrew Hoyle/CNET Plastic is a problem, but bendable glass is years awayFrom the very beginning, phone-watchers remarked that the Galaxy Fold and Mate X’s foldable plastic screens could be their very undoing. Because who wants to spend $2,000 or more on a scratch-prone phone?Right now, foldable phone have to use a bendable flexible plastic screen, which make them especially vulnerable to nicks and gouges, pressure damage and bulges formed by debris tunneling under the display. Samsung’s screen issues don’t come as a total surprise. The brands only showed off their foldable phones briefly, unlike virtually every other models that see much more time in reviewers’ hands before the final review unit appears. We used the Mate X for about five minutes in March and first touched the Galaxy Fold moments before we received our review unit in April. The phone-makers’ elusive attitude was a strong tip-off that the foldable devices weren’t ready for prime time.

The very first foldable phone models were always going to be niche, beta-style devices for bleeding-edge adopters, models that reveal the strengths and weaknesses of a brand-new design ethos that their makers could then fine-tune down the line. Samsung and Huawei aimed to score the first points and force rivals to follow suit. But if competitors are learning any lesson, it’s to slow down and get their foldable designs right. Hopefully Samsung and Huawei are taking note, too.Posted June 15 at 5 a.m. PT.

2 killed as gunman takes hostages in France

first_imgPolice are seen at the scene of a hostage situation in a supermarket in Trebes, Aude, France 23 March, 2018 in this picture obtained from a social media video. Photo: ReutersAt least two people were killed after a gunman claiming allegiance to the Islamic State group opened fire and took hostages at a supermarket in southwest France on Friday.A security source said the two were killed in the attack at a Super U store in the town of Trebes.Armed police were also responding to the earlier shooting of a policeman in the town of Carcassonne, 15 minutes drive away, which took place at around 11 am (1000 GMT).It was unclear if the two incidents were linked.In Trebes, a picturesque medieval town of around 5,000 people, the man “entered the Super U supermarket at around 11.15 am and shots were heard,” a source told AFP on condition of anonymity.A witness reported he shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is greatest) before going into the premises, the source added.- Site off-limits -The gunman claimed allegiance to the Islamic State group, the local prosecutor’s office said, and the incident was being treated as a terror attack.Local authorities tweeted that the area around the supermarket was off-limits to the public, while Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said it was a “serious” incident.The shootings come with France still on high alert after a string of jihadist attacks since 2015, starting in January that year with the assault on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo that left 12 people dead.France also suffered major attacks in Paris in November 2015 when IS jihadists killed 130 people in bombings and shootings at bars, restaurants, the Bataclan concert venue and the national stadium.In July 2016, in another attack claimed by IS, a man drove a truck through revellers celebrating Bastille Day in the Riviera resort of Nice, killing 84 people.A state of emergency put in place just after the Paris attacks was finally lifted in October last year, but soldiers continue to patrol major tourist sites and transport hubs under an anti-terror mission.If the link to Islamic State is confirmed, the hostage-taking would be the first deadly attack in France since October, when two young women were stabbed to death outside Marseille’s main train station.Interior Minister Gerard Collomb was heading to the scene, he wrote on Twitter.The area of southwest France where Friday’s shootings took place has been scarred by Islamic extremism before.In 2012, Mohamed Merah shot dead seven people including three Jewish schoolchildren in the nearby city of Toulouse.last_img read more
