INGERSOLL, Ont. – GM Canada has been hit with its first assembly plant strike in more than two decades as uncertainty on North American trade negotiations loom over contract talks with workers at its CAMI operation in Ingersoll, Ont.The 2,500 members of Unifor local 88 walked out Sunday at 10:59 p.m. as the two sides failed to reach agreements on plant operations, economic issues, and especially job security.Local 88 president Dan Borthwick, reached by phone on the picket line, said the union is pushing to have the plant designated the lead producer of GM’s Chevrolet Equinox to ensure jobs aren’t shifted to Mexico.He said the issue has become more pressing after GM shifted production of its Terrain small SUV from the plant to Mexico earlier this year at a loss of more than 400 jobs.“We’re done with that. We need some job security and commitment,” said Borthwick.“GM just has to get around their corporate greed. They need to start sharing the $12 billion they make a year.”The company said in a statement that it’s disappointed the two sides couldn’t reach a deal, but said both sides have made progress on issues in recent weeks and encouraged Unifor to resume negotiations.GM said it committed $800 million in 2015 to prepare the CAMI plant for the latest Equinox model, but with some production of the vehicle already happening in Mexico, Borthwick said he wasn’t reassured by the investment.“The $800 million was spent when the Terrain was here, so there’s no guarantees.”The shifting of work to Mexico is a key issue for the ongoing North American Free Trade Agreement negotiations, and creates significant complications for automaker labour negotiations, said Brendan Sweeney, project manager at McMaster University’s Automotive Policy Research Centre.“There’s so much uncertainty. How can they make these commitments today when obviously NAFTA is being renegotiated? I don’t know how they can do that; they’re kind of hamstrung.”Sweeney said GM and other automakers were able to reach contract agreements last year, with Unifor securing large investments from GM in its Canadian operations including its assembly plant in Oshawa, Ont.But workers at the CAMI plant operate under a different contract from other GM employees, and their renewal negotiations have come at a tricky time as automakers face uncertainty on key policies like how many cars they’ll be able to import to the U.S. from Canada and Mexico, and whether those vehicles will face tariffs.“Any movement one way or another on those issues will impact what companies do. But the companies won’t do that stuff until they know. So it’s just crappy timing to be bargaining,” said Sweeney.Unifor president Jerry Dias said CAMI is a “poster child” for what’s wrong with NAFTA, where GM shifted production from one of the most productive plants in the world to Mexico to pay workers $2 an hour.He said trade negotiations will have to address the low wages for workers in Mexico, where automakers have opened eight assembly plants with more on the way after closing four in Canada and 10 in the U.S.“NAFTA in itself is a complete and utter disaster,” said Dias. “Workers from all three countries got screwed. Canada and the U.S., we lost our jobs, and Mexico they never gained as a result of it.”The strike is the first assembly plant strike in Canada since GM workers walked off the job in 1996, with Dias saying union members are fed up with the continuing job losses.“The fact is we’ve just had enough, everyone’s just had enough.”
Rabat – Kaoutar Fal, who was arrested in Brussels on suspicion of spying for Moroccan intelligence services and later released, has returned home to Morocco.Fal’s lawyer Julien Hardy told Belgian television channel RTBF that Fal went back to Morocco Monday, July 23.“Mrs. Fal decided to leave Belgium and booked a flight to Morocco that she has already taken. She left on a voluntary basis.” She was not expelled from Belgium, he asserted.The Indictments Division and the Aliens Litigation Council (CEC) spokesman said earlier that she was detained “on the basis of another article according to which she is illegally in the territory, and because she represents a threat to national security.”Fal, of Moroccan nationality, was released by the Indictments Division and the CEC because her detention in a closed center was found to be illegal, Hardy told Belgian news agency Belga last week.Fal was arrested on July 11 and detained in the 127 bis closed center in Steenokkerzeel, Belgium, when she went to Charleroi Airport to pick up her passport. Her passport had been seized during a previous detention.Fal was arrested for the first time on May 29, when she had just landed at Belgium’s Charleroi Airport, she said in a letter.Illegal detentionAccording to the Aliens Office, Belgian State Security had asked that Fal be arrested because she represented a risk to national security. “It is important for us to send her back to Morocco as soon as possible,” said the CEC spokesman.“My client was released by the council chamber which judged her detention in a closed center as illegal. The decision was then confirmed by the CEC on July 9,” Hardy told Belga. “She was released on July 10. But she did not get her passport back which would have allowed her to leave the Belgian territory. On July 11, she was again held in detention.” Kaoutar Fal’s lawyer lodged a new appeal with the CEC because his client suffered “illegal deprivation of liberty,” he told Belgium channel VRT on July 12.“The Aliens Office has taken more than a dozen decisions in total, including two on prohibitions of entry. We contest the legality of this,” said Hardy Monday to RTBF. “Several legal proceedings are underway to this effect and others will be introduced.”
China has blocked imports of canola seed from a second major Canadian exporter.China’s General Administration of Customs announced Tuesday on its website that its officials have detected several hazardous organisms in shipments of canola from Viterra Inc.It says shipments from Viterra have been blocked to prevent the introduction of pests to China. Viterra did not immediately respond to a request for comment.The Chinese government gave the same reason for blocking canola shipped by Richardson International Ltd. of Winnipeg.The Canola Council of Canada has also reported that Chinese companies have stopped buying canola seed from Canadian producers.China accounts for about 40 per cent of Canada’s exports of canola seed, oil and meal.The Canadian Press
Sri Lanka has set its national vision to become an upper middle-income country by 2025 by transforming the country into the hub of the Indian Ocean with a knowledge-based, highly comparative, social market economy. To do so, the country tries to harness science, technology and innovation to create the conditions which will generate economic growth.In order to realize the vision of national development with sound STI capacity, it is necessary for the Government to have the officials equipped with knowledge and expertise in establishing and implementing national STI policy, its action plans and an efficient STI system, the Korean Embassy said. Korea has extended support for Sri Lanka’s efforts to become the hub of the Indian Ocean.The Korean Embassy in Colombo today said that the Science and Technology Policy Institute (STEPI) held workshops on “Capacity Building in Building in STI Policy Formulation and R&D Commercialization” in Colombo recently. The workshop was designed to enhance the capacities of 50 senior – level officials and managers of the related Science and Technology governmental agencies, academia and research institutions. The workshop was mainly focused for high level Government officials and researchers in Sri Lanka. The Embassy said that in most of the cases policy formulation and implementation in Sri Lanka are based on ad hoc approaches and intuition.The National Science and Technology Commission (NASTEC) under the Ministry of Science, Technology and Research (MoSTR) of Sri Lanka has requested STEPI to provide a customized training program for STI stakeholders about STI policy development and R&D commercialization mechanisms by submitting the Project Concept Paper(PCP) in March, 2017.As per this request a special workshop on capacity building in STI policy formulation and R&D commercialization commenced in Colombo, 30th May 2018 to June 5th. A special team from STEPI will conduct this training program with presentations on various policy tools, R&D planning and evaluation techniques and R&D commercialization approaches with relevant case studies from Korea. Prof. Gunapala Nanayakkara, Chairman of NASTEC delivering the welcome speech of the inauguration session described the present situation of Science, Technology and Research in Sri Lanka, Dr. EunJoo Kim from the STEPI Team and H M B C Herath, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Science Technology and Research also delivered speeches during the ceremony.Concluding the session vote of thanks was delivered by Dr. Kalpa Samarakoon from NASTEC.The output expected from the workshop is to acquire essential knowledge on framework, concept, schemes and tools involved in developing STI policies and managing national Research and Development programmes. The inauguration ceremony of the workshop was held at the Sri Lanka Institute of Development Administration (SLIDA) auditorium with the participation of the members of the STEPI team from South Korea, officials from NASTEC, Ministry of Science, Technology and Research, and invited scientists and guests from institutes in Sri Lanka. It is also to share Korean experiences and practices which were applied in the fields as well as to explore policy ideas to apply in the Sri Lanka context through discussions with Korean experts.

Matt Ginsberg’s technology may be able to tell us mortals what the universe already knows — it may let the universe whisper in our ear. We may not have to wait for a resolution. We may, for example, have been able to hear Cinderella’s death knell just a little bit sooner. Rather than “keep your eye on the ball,” it’s now “keep your eye on where the ball will be.”Sportvision — the company behind football’s 1st & Ten, baseball’s PITCHf/x, sailing’s LiveLine and other tech — has undertaken some real-time projections of a different sort. It has tech that tells TV viewers when one car is expected to pass another in NASCAR, for example. But Hank Adams, Sportvision’s CEO, told me he wasn’t aware of any other technology like Ginsberg’s. It seemed reasonable. “I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he could predict, with some accuracy, whether a ball was going to go in or not,” Adams said.Adams also mused on the implications of Ginsberg’s technology. Its use as a TV storytelling tool may be limited, he said, given the mere second or two that it allows us to see into the future. He was also skeptical that the NBA would allow any in-game use by teams. It could be a valuable coaching tool, he thought. Or in training. Perhaps in a golf telecast. Maybe for players in a volleyball game. Neither of us was really sure. Truth No. 1: Most of us watch sports to see the unexpected. Truth No. 2: Plenty of us want to predict the future.Somewhere, where those two contradictory truths meet, there has been a movement afoot. For decades now, sports-crazed statheads — the sabermetricians and forecasters and moneyballers bent on winning their fantasy leagues, assembling an actual professional team or simply understanding the sports world — have been honing their techniques, trying to find the signal hiding in the noise. In baseball alone, an alphabet soup of player projection systems have been born — ZiPS, CAIRO, CHONE. We just introduced CARMELO to basketball. The movement is trying, in other words, to predict the unexpected.There are some in the movement who want to project the future, quite literally, on the screens in front of our eyes. Somewhere in the foothills of Oregon’s Cascade Mountains, an astrophysicist and his son are working, with the backing of an outspoken billionaire, to bring us just such a glimpse. Armed only with a camera, a laptop and their custom code, they’re working on a system that calls a 3-pointer a swish or a brick, a volleyball serve in or out, a soccer shot over the bar or in the goal, all before the ball completes its flight. If the system works — and that’s a big “if” — it would be equivalent to a minor superpower: flash precognition. The sports fan would become, if only for a second or two, a superhero.And the system is almost done. This, right here, could be the future of sports: But the system’s not perfect — not yet. It occasionally doesn’t even recognize a shot is happening, or it thinks a pass is a shot, or it simply makes the wrong call after identifying a shot. Here, it thinks a long pass is a long shot: Again, the idea is simple. Almost comically so, judging by illustrations in the patent application.The execution, on the other hand, is not simple. Matt Ginsberg’s training is in astrophysics. He got his Ph.D. from Oxford when he was 24 years old. His doctoral advisor there was the famed mathematical physicist Roger Penrose, and he recalls rubbing elbows with the academic rock stars Stephen Hawking and the late Richard Feynman. He created an artificial intelligence crossword puzzle solver called Dr. Fill and a computer bridge world champion called GIB.Unsurprisingly, there’s pretty heavy math involved to make this real-time sports predictor work. For one element of the system’s calculations, Ginsberg sent me a pdf with eight dense pages of physics diagrams and systems of equations and notes on derivations. It uses something called the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm. It requires Jacobians and the taking of partial derivatives and the solving of quartics, and code efficient enough to calculate it all up to the split second. If predicting the future were easy, I suppose everybody would do it. (See Truth No. 2, above.)One thing this project can’t predict, however, is its own future. Its uses are, so far, largely speculative, and cashing in on a minor superpower might not be easy. Even gamblers who bet during play would struggle to make much money from a half-second heads-up that a shot is going in. But Ginsberg’s system would find a natural place in the long line of sports technologies that have been used for a singular end — TV. The development of this tech, which looks quaint in retrospect, was a major undertaking. In 1994, an executive vice president at News Corp. promised to develop glow puck technology within two years, for $2 million, according to a 2003 article in IEEE Spectrum. He scooped up a team of 10 with military engineering experience — in radar, underwater sensors and radio-positioning systems — and sought outside help from other defense engineers. It was all hands on deck to track a hockey puck.But the system was discontinued after three years. FoxTrax’s main problem was probably aesthetics. It was distracting, and the puck’s “tail” looked better suited to a comic book than a hockey game. Hockey fans protested, the broadcast rights changed networks, and the phenomenon died.But its developers were undeterred. They turned their attention to a problem that sounds easier, but was much trickier. A couple years later — on Sept. 27, 1998 — the middling Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens met in Baltimore. At 8:20 p.m. local time, a technology called 1st & Ten debuted. It’s better known as the yellow first-down line. The yellow line isn’t official — as anyone who’s ever watched a football game on TV could tell you — but the yellow line is beloved. I had 13 good football-watching years under my belt before its introduction, but I can’t remember watching a single game without it. The yellow line is ubiquitous. The yellow line won an Emmy. The yellow line is here to stay. Watch FiveThirtyEight’s Oliver Roeder and Jody Avirgan talk about Ginsberg’s invention. Matt Ginsberg is tall and fit with sharp features and, aside from his closely cut grey hair, resembles a 40-year-old rock climber more closely than the 60-year-old technologist and businessman that he is. He’s affable but deeply serious. I first met him in Stamford, Connecticut, in March, at the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, where he was operating Dr. Fill, his artificial intelligence crossword puzzle solver. In the crossword community, he’s both loved and hated — he’s the guy who might be a little too clever for his own good who’s trying to ruin all the fun with his fancy computer program.His would-be revolution in sports technology grew out of his role as unofficial statistical analyst for the University of Oregon’s women’s volleyball team. He has, among other things, imported basketball’s adjusted plus-minus system to volleyball, and convinced the team’s coach that the way timeouts were traditionally used was inefficient. Last November, while Ginsberg was watching a game, a player hit a serve that, from Ginsberg’s bleacher seat, looked like it was sure to go out. The returning players should’ve simply let the ball go out but they didn’t. Ginsberg was annoyed. “I can fix this. We can have a computer help,” he told me. “I did not realize how hard it would be.”While the development of FoxTrax and 1st & Ten resembled military contracts, Matt Ginsberg’s purported crystal ball was developed in a son-and-pop shop in Eugene, Oregon. Navarre Ginsberg is a 21-year-old programmer and Matt Ginsberg’s son. When I reached Navarre Ginsberg by phone in early October, his dad told me not to take up too much of his time — he had to get the camera working. It was the younger Ginsberg who first suggested to his dad that this technology could be taken far beyond just volleyball. Matt is in charge of the big picture; Navarre is responsible for handling coding issues as they arise, and making sure the damn thing works.The result looks like this. Here’s a Rajon Rondo shot that misses right — as correctly called by the computer: The vast majority of our collective sports-viewing is on television. Around 21 million people watch an average Sunday Night Football game on TV, for example — some 300 times more than the 70,000 who are able to see it in person. Our sports experience is, to a first approximation, a television experience. I’ve seen Tom Brady play dozens of times, even though I’ve never seen Tom Brady play.And television has been enhancing — or, at the very least, altering — how we watch sports ever since TV was invented. NBC coverage of the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, the first sporting event ever televised, used slow motion footage to “show the form, the poetry of motion” of a pole vaulter.It seems a natural fit. Cameras and technology can do many things our eyes can’t. If we can see closeups of Pluto, surely we deserve a crystal-clear view of Odell Beckham Jr.’s catch. “Keep your eye on the ball” is the child’s earliest and most universal sports lesson. And nowadays we can see just about every little thing that happens to the ball. Or puck.Nearly 20 years ago, on Jan. 20, 1996, at the NHL All-Star Game, FoxTrax made its debut. FoxTrax is better known as a glowing hockey puck whizzing around the screen. The Ginsbergs are aware of their system’s imperfections, but they share an enthusiasm for what it can become. And they want to get it out into the world, perhaps as soon as this NBA season.“If we haven’t figured out why that’s valuable to a sport yet, we just haven’t thought hard enough yet,” Navarre Ginsberg said.Looking for investors, and an eventual outlet for his project, Matt Ginsberg approached Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Mavericks, in January. The idea had applications beyond volleyball, Ginsberg had realized. Cuban was hesitant, Ginsberg said, until Ginsberg proposed a deal: Give me $50,000, he said, and I’ll develop it, and the Mavericks can use it in one game.“$50,000 to win an NBA game of your choice is incredibly cheap,” Ginsberg recalled telling Cuban. “And you don’t care about the 50 grand but I do. And I’ll also give you a right of first refusal across the NBA.” Cuban wanted two years, and Ginsberg could keep the right of first refusal. Ginsberg agreed. A lawyer came in to iron out the finer points of the deal. The lawyer was suspicious. What the hell were the Mavs even buying? It could be unicorns.Cuban described his involvement in the project to me as “active” — providing tech and design recommendations. But Ginsberg is the brains behind the coding, he said in an email last week. The most promising use of the project, in Cuban’s view? “Real-time predictions on court that can be relayed to the sidelines.” He wouldn’t comment on how the Mavericks intend to use it, if at all.When I asked Cuban how he thought the NBA would respond, he deflected a bit: “It will have amazing real-time applications in the future — things like detecting whether or not a shot was goaltended, in real time, and relaying that information to officials or displaying it on the backboard.”“If we can make basketball more fun to watch on TV, how much is that worth? I am completely clueless.”Ginsberg’s views on the technology’s uses have been evolving dramatically since we first talked in March, but they’ve always been broad. Some uses seem doable; some no doubt pie-in-the-sky. Goaltending, as Cuban suggested, is one humble but useful application. The technology could ensure that goaltending is always called correctly — it analyzes a ball’s arc, so finding the apex of a given ball’s trajectory to check for goaltending would be easy pickings. Another use is volleyball serves. A system like this is legal in NCAA volleyball — or at least it’s not illegal. Yet. (The Ginsbergs are unabashed Oregon Duck homers. “I’m excited about helping my team,” the elder said.) Another is for soccer goalies. The tech could prevent them from ceding unnecessary corner kicks. Another is tennis. Tennis players could train with the technology, and learn in real time what types of passing shots they should let go at the net and which they should go all out to try to volley.But the killer app, in many of our conversations, has been basketball tactics. Imagine, Ginsberg would describe, if the home team’s players knew when their opponents’ shots were going to go in. They’d be signaled — a flashing light, maybe — and most of them could immediately race down to their offensive end, knowing they needn’t play any more defense on that play. A huge advantage; a sea change in basketball strategy.Now, whether that’s practical or would be allowed by the NBA seems questionable, at best. And Ginsberg has backed off this idea somewhat. At the very least, he doesn’t want this tactic available to just one team.“I don’t want to have every basketball fan who doesn’t live in Dallas hating me,” he said. “That would not make my life better.”So what about TV?“There are going to be media applications that I can’t predict, because I’m not a media guy,” he said. “The other thing that’s really become apparent to me, as we’ve gotten closer here, is that I don’t know what I’m doing. In the sense that there’s huge economic value to this. If we can make basketball more fun to watch on TV, how much is that worth to NBC? And I am completely clueless” — so clueless he didn’t realize the NBA hasn’t aired on NBC since 2002. The footage is from a Dallas Mavericks game against the San Antonio Spurs in March. What you see was calculated in real time, but for demonstration purposes the shot itself is slowed down. A computer tracked the ball’s position as well as its projected position, and the three red bars underneath the action indicate the system’s confidence that the ball would miss left, go in, or miss right, respectively. In this clip, it was a Monta Ellis jumper that went in, just as the tech predicted.“Many decisions in sports relate to the trajectory of a ball or similar object, such as a puck or shuttlecock,” reads the patent application for this technology filed in late August. There are three names on the patent application: Matthew L. Ginsberg, Navarre S. Ginsberg and Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. The Ginsbergs have ambitions to spread their technology far and high, including to the NBA and its billionaire owners, including Cuban.When Matt Ginsberg first mentioned this project to me, back in March, he began the conversation like this: “I’m going to revolutionize sports.”His idea is simple: Find a ball with a camera and have it tell a computer what’s up with the ball (or shuttlecock or javelin or frisbee or whatever). Then have the computer calculate, in real time, where the ball’s going. Then turn that into some useful piece of information, knowing what sport we’re watching and the dimensions of that sport’s infrastructure — lines on the ground, baskets in the air, and so on. Have the computer tell you, maybe along with some measurement of its certainty, “that basketball will go in the basket” or “that volleyball will land outside the lines.”Then do something interesting with that fact. Have a red light go off to signal an out-of-bounds serve to the returning team. Have a soccer goalie’s smartwatch buzz if a shot is going to clear the bar, telling her she needn’t parry it and concede a corner kick. Put it on the TV screen for the folks at home. Technologies like these told us more about what we were looking at by putting a visual layer between us and a game on our TV. FoxTrax told us where the puck was at all times. 1st & Ten tells us where a team is trying to go. But they were just building blocks. Data was the next frontier.A torrent of new innovations followed in their wake. The NFL and Zebra Technologies have strapped radio-frequency identification chips onto players this season. The camera-tracking system SportVU has been hailed as the future of the NBA by our friends at Grantland. ProTracer technology has given golf fans something to stare at other than the warm plasma-screen glow of the summer sky. Hawk-Eye technology in tennis powers replay challenges and can track a ball to within mere millimeters. LiveLine, another Emmy winner, does its best to make sailing interesting to watch. And one word — in press releases, company websites and media coverage of these technologies — appears over and over again: “revolutionary.” Layering data on top of a sports broadcast is the frontier.But, as with most revolutions, there is a staunch establishment that leans against the shifting winds. In April, Vice published a philippic against K-Zone, the imaginary strike zone projected on the screen during baseball games. “The calculus at the root of this experiment seems to be that we prefer perfect information to beauty, precision to custom,” Robert O’Connell wrote. And some even rebel against television itself. Each season, the supremacy of radio-baseball to TV-baseball is vocally declaimed by acolytes. “Listening to a game on the radio, while driving along through the night hits some sort of cosmic level of perfection, especially if you can find it on an AM station, with a slight whine from some other signal, scratchy static calling the game in from across time and space,” Todd VanDerWerff, Vox’s culture editor, wrote in his newsletter earlier this month. “The fall of baseball could certainly be tied to the slow decline of radio as well,” he added.The natural-human-beauty-vs.-cold-mechanical-statistics sports debate has been thoroughly litigated, including on FiveThirtyEight. The jury is hopelessly hung. Do you want a dressed-up broadcast? Do you want a television screen augmented with pitch counts and wind speeds and strike zones and Bryce Harper’s velocity running to first? Or do you simply want to tune your dial to AM 720 for the crack of the bat and the passionate, pained voice of Ron Santo, may he rest in peace?I’d guess the split is largely generational. As the aesthetics of real televised sports approach those of sports video games, with their elaborate heads-up displays and options, the younger set may feel more at ease. But there’s more than just aesthetics that sports share with video games. The outcomes of events in both are pre-known, if you know where to look. When you kick a field goal in Madden 16, for example, the path of the ball is already written. Sure, you’ll see the ball fly through the air for a few seconds, and perhaps drift slowly toward the right upright, causing you to clench. But the game and your Xbox already “know” if it’s good or wide right — the kick’s power and distance, the wind, etc. have already been thrown into whatever algorithm and the result already spat out. The anticipation is just an illusion. But isn’t that the same in real life? When Butler’s Gordon Hayward launched the shot that would’ve beaten Duke in the 2010 NCAA final, it hangs in the air for-seemingly-ever — in fact it’s just shy of two seconds — and we don’t know whether it will go in or out. (See Truth No. 1, above.) But the universe “knows.” Physics “knows.” This technology’s future may become a lot clearer very soon. Ginsberg has been taking meetings over the phone. This month, he talked with an NBA executive vice president to discuss what impact this technology should have on the game. And he talked with Marc Lasry, the billionaire hedge-fund manager and co-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, who Ginsberg thinks can help advise him on the economics.But here’s the thing about predicting the future: You’d better be right. In the 13-minute video Ginsberg sent me, the computer was right on 23 of its 30 calls — about 77 percent accuracy. It also didn’t recognize a shot, or thought a pass was a shot, on 10 occasions. Even just miscalling a few shots in a game could doom a project like this. If this tech is ever integral to the game — for a broadcaster or a pro team — it’ll be a fine line between the computer as Oracle of Delphi and the computer as useless hunk of junk.The Ginsbergs know this, and have been so busy hammering away at the last pesky nails sticking out of their project that they haven’t even named the thing yet. The patent application calls it Real-Time Sports Advisory System Using Ball Trajectory Prediction — and RTSASUBTP doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. My suggestion: The tRuth. The technological Babe Ruth. He called his shot, after all.
Oscar Carlen has been operated again, and according to the team’s website, the HSV Hamburg, the operation went all well, and after few days he will be released home. However, he will have to stay outside the field for about a year, which means he will probably miss most of the next season. Previously he has been operated last October.

As with so much in modern physics and cosmology, in this case even asking questions raises questions. Asking what’s outside the universe carries with it any number of implications and assumptions, each of which have to be addressed and, ultimately, deflected with conditional language. However, there’s no better or more convenient way to phrase the question, so we’ll go forward with it: What is outside the universe?There is only one group of scientists who can really claim to know, and these are the people who reject any definition of the word “universe” which would allow that question to make any sense. To them, the term is interchangeable with “reality,” and anything defined as “outside” the universe would be a part of the universe by virtue of the simple fact that we’ve defined it as existing at all. Increasingly, though, the word universe is acquiring a more meaningful definition that we can work with productively.The classic book Flatland tried to explain the third dimension in terms of only two. It is often used to teach about a fourth dimension in terms of our mere three.One idea of the universe says that it is finite but never-ending. To understand this, imagine a telescope with an infinite ability to zoom in, aimed perfectly away from the center of the Earth. If there was no obstruction to get in the way, zooming in far enough in one direction would under this model let you see the other side of the Earth. That’s assuming that the Earth was there some 50 billion years ago when the light would have left to enter your telescope, which is unlikely since that’s several times the current age of the universe.The point of the thought experiment is to impress the idea of a universe that is curved around a fourth dimension we cannot directly perceive. In this conception there is nothing outside the universe because there is no edge to be beyond — at least, not one that can be intrinsically grokked by the human mind.Even if we confine ourselves to the idea that the currently observable universe is simply the area over which matter from the Big Bang has thus far traveled, we come up against a problem: what is this matter expanding into? Under this conception of the question, we must grapple with the idea that the universe doesn’t necessarily need anything to expand into. Space itself has been famously defined as “No more and no less than what is measured by a ruler.” In other words, though we tend to talk about space-time as a substance like a rubber sheet, it is not a thing that has physical reality. It is therefor perfectly possible that beyond the universe of matter there is quite simply nothing. But who’s to say that the nothing isn’t part of the universe, too?Newly accurate readings of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation disproved the theory of Dark Flow and struck a blow to one sort of multiverse theory.And then the theories start to get really weird. If the universe is infinite, it would also contain an infinite amount of matter. In this case, literally every possible arrangement of matter is present an infinite number of times. There are an infinite number of Earths out there, if we look far enough afield, some drastically different from outs, some virtually identical, some literally identical. Actually, there would be an infinite number of every one of the infinite possible Earths. As to what’s outside this universe, well, there’s obviously nothing beyond an infinite border.Then there are the multiverse explanations. These postulate that the universe split off after the Big Bang into everything from bubbles to sheets. Our universe is just one of many, possibly a finite number or possibly infinite. In this conception, what’s “outside” our universe is simply another universe. It could have identical physical laws to our own home, or have completely different ones. Everything from gravity to the strong nuclear force could be different, leading to a reality that could behave differently in fundamental ways. Perhaps elsewhere in the multiverse, all matter condensed down into a ball again and is gearing up for a new big bang. Black holes are often cited by cosmologists as possible tunnels to, or even creators of, other universes. They are areas where the laws of physics break down, and where anything is possible.The multiverse idea actually provides a useful definition for universe: perhaps a universe is the total amount of matter, energy, time, and space that is all interacting and subject to the same fundamental physical laws. Anything that does not interact and conforms to different laws would be “outside” our universe — though of course “inside” its own.Ultimately, there is only one real answer: nothing is beyond the universe. Do not invert the grammar here; it would not be accurate to say that beyond the universe is nothing. Phrased in the first way, this sentence can mean either that the extent of the observable universe is all there is and there is a theoretical nothingness beyond it, or that the universe is such that it has no exterior and there is no such thing as outside it. Only the multiverse theory has a concrete idea of what might lie outside the universe — but even that is just more universe.At present, cosmology has a fair bit of evidence suggesting that what we know most conventionally as the observable universe isn’t all there is to be found. Though the idea of “dark flow” as proof of outside universes has been debunked, the concepts of dark matter and dark energy present frameworks for a plane of reality totally beyond our powers of observation. When it comes to finding the edges of the universe, we’ve really only just begun.
The Clark County council determined on Tuesday that it could do little to address the anxieties of residents of an unincorporated part of the county that’s slated to be annexed to the city of Vancouver.For months, residents of Green Meadows, a sleepy neighborhood just north of Vancouver city limits, have turned up at county council and Vancouver City Council meetings to express concerns that the city’s annexation plans will hasten development and drastically change the area’s character. On Tuesday, more than 50 people showed up for a meeting on the topic that ended with a majority of the county council concluding its hands were tied.“I don’t see how, legally, we can take action,” Councilor Jeanne Stewart said at the meeting.Earlier this year, the city of Vancouver revived its plans to annex parts of unincorporated Clark County, which had been stalled since the Great Recession. The annexation plans include a 1,120-acre area that encompasses Green Meadows golf course. The golf course was built in the 1960s and it’s been a defining characteristic of the neighborhood that’s grown up around it.Although the county’s comprehensive plan, which guides growth, designates the golf course as open space, it’s zoned residential, meaning its owners could build housing on it. The zoning designation would be largely preserved after the city annexes the area, which it could be on track to do by next year. Residents of Green Meadows worry that annexation will make development of the golf course into housing more likely given the city’s rapid growth.“The bigger (the city of Vancouver gets), the more they want, the more they need and it becomes a spiral,” Dave Socolofsky, a resident of the area, told The Columbian after the meeting. He added that he was disappointed by the council’s lack of action and expected similar concerns from other residents of unincorporated Clark County to arise as the city grows.

Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project “We need change,” Carias said as the drum-beating caravan paraded by. “I thought it would come with Chavez but I’m very disappointed. He promised us everything but nothing changed. I still don’t have running water, sewer or electricity.”From single mothers to construction workers, some Chavez supporters have been turning away from the president to consider new leadership. They’ve become key to the Oct. 7 presidential vote and Capriles’ strategy.Surveys don’t indicate exactly which “Chavistas” are becoming “Caprilistas,” but the group appears to include working-class and lower-middle-class Venezuelans. Polls also reveal weariness over a growing yet troubled economy, 18 percent inflation and one of the world’s highest murder rates.Despite billions of dollars in government spending on social programs, solutions to problems such as the country’s severe housing shortage have been elusive. Slums have grown during Chavez’s presidency, and the government’s construction of new housing projects hasn’t kept up with the legions of poor people like Carias who have applied for apartments and ended up waiting for years. Now Chavez is spending heavily building apartments and paying out more benefits to poor families. But some in the working class still complain that they’re being bypassed and have lost faith in the government’s promises.Chavez held a 10-point lead over Capriles in a survey released this week by the Venezuelan polling firm Datanalisis. But the 49 percent who said they intend to vote for Chavez was dramatically lower than the 63 percent who re-elected him in 2006. The latest poll said 11 percent of those interviewed didn’t reveal a preference.A survey by the Venezuelan polling firm Consultores 21 put the two candidates roughly even, with 46.5 percent saying they would vote for Capriles and nearly 46 percent saying they would vote for Chavez.The poll questioned 1,500 people Sept. 7-18 and had an error margin of 3 percentage points. It also included a second question, in which people were asked to mark their choice in secret, in case they didn’t want to reveal their preference to the pollster. Under that method, Capriles had almost 49 percent and Chavez just under 46 percent.Saul Cabrera, the polling company’s vice president, said Thursday that the results show a “technical tie.” He said the poll was paid for a Venezuelan business, but he declined to identify it. “It’s clear that he’s not the same Chavez as he was in 2006,” Leon said. “His ratings in terms of performance and public approval have changed. If (Capriles) has a chance, it’s because of that. There’s a migration of votes. The question is: Is it enough?”Chavez, for one, has called an opposition victory impossible, saying he’ll win by a “knockout” and even put on boxing gloves at one point to emphasize his prediction. At one news conference, he laughed when asked about his loyalists defecting.“For those who say there’s a hidden vote, or that Chavistas will vote against Chavez, it’s something like saying there are Martians on the sun,” Chavez quipped.Chavez has also been trying to make inroads among traditional middle-class opposition supporters. On a recent evening a small crowd of Chavistas demonstrated on a corner in an affluent Caracas neighborhood, holding banners announcing “The Middle Class with Chavez.”The impression has nonetheless grown that the president has become too enamored of his own global legacy while neglecting basic needs at home such as infrastructure and public safety. Chavez’s election manifesto of proposals for his next six-year term trumpets abstract ideas such as “preserving life on the planet and helping to save mankind,” a “new international geopolitics” and “a continuation of the 21st century socialism.” Sponsored Stories Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Arizona families, Arizona farms: providing the local community with responsibly produced dairy “I voted for him but I regret it,” said Rosina Dambrosio, a homemaker in Petare. “He was going to modernize Venezuela and fight crime. And he also spoke so beautifully. I guess we trusted him too much. He still speaks nicely, but I don’t believe him anymore.”She and her neighbor Zoraida Berniquez said it’s not safe to walk the neighborhood at night. Berniquez recently had to dive for cover during a walk when she heard the rat-tat-tat of gunfire.Former Chavez supporters pile on the disappointments: The president’s concentrated too much power and has governed undemocratically, he’s divided the country along pro- and anti-Chavez lines.“This is not the country that I wanted for my grandchildren,” said Osiris Rojas, a 56-year-old secretary, while listening to Capriles at a rally. “Why so much hate if we’re all Venezuelans? I feel cheated.”___Associated Press writers Ian James and Fabiola Sanchez contributed to this report.___Luis Andres Henao on Twitter: https://twitter.com/LuisAndresHenao Capriles has responded with ridicule, recently telling supporters: “Saving humankind! … Where’s the plan for health? Where’s the plan for education, for jobs?”Capriles’ campaign has also been running newspaper ads detailing “14 years of unfulfilled promises,” including pledges by Chavez to construct a bridge across the country’s biggest lake, build more hospitals and revolutionize a small farming sector to make the country self-sufficient in food. Another opposition ad features side-by-side photos of Venezuela’s slums with homes that Chavez purportedly gave away in the Dominican Republic, with the slogan “It’s time to put Venezuela first.”It’s a message that resonates in places such as Petare, one of the biggest slums in Latin America, where homicides and the lack of basic public works make life a daily struggle. In 2008, an opposition candidate beat out a close Chavez aide to become district mayor. Since then it’s been a key electoral battleground in Caracas.During Capriles’ weekend demonstration, many wore baseball caps emblazoned with the yellow, red and blue of the Venezuelan flag, just like the one their candidate has worn on the campaign trail. The crowd paraded past small groups of Chavez supporters in red shirts who came out of their homes shouting “Chavez won’t leave!” and other slogans. Several years ago, more of them would have been challenging the march. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Associated PressCARACAS, Venezuela (AP) – Liliana Carias used to hope President Hugo Chavez would change her life. Not anymore.She’s been living for years in a dirt-floor shack without running water, and after voting for Chavez in the last three presidential elections, the single mother of four said she’s tired of waiting for help.She was among thousands of people who cheered for the president’s rival recently in the serpentine streets of Caracas’ Petare slum, which used to be a bastion of support for Chavez. She held out a handwritten letter addressed to “My future President Henrique Capriles,” the opposition challenger, writing that her salary as a supermarket cashier was no longer enough to support her family and she was worried her landlord would evict them. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Analysts say a strong turnout by disenchanted ex-Chavistas could help tip the balance in favor of the challenger.“The votes of those who have changed sides are key in this race because without them, it would be impossible for Capriles to win,” said Luis Vicente Leon, president of Datanalisis.Chavez first won the presidency in 1998 with promises to sweep away corrupt, entrenched political parties and help the poor in this oil-rich country.That message helped the soldier-turned-politician win political dominance throughout the 2000s as the economy boomed along with oil earnings. Chavez has remained popular in part thanks to social programs including state-run grocery stores, medical clinics staffed by Cuban doctors and cash benefits for poor families.Government figures show the number of Venezuelans living in poverty decreased most markedly between 2004 and 2007, and then in the following years budged little, while the opposition grew stronger and fared better in elections. In the 2010 congressional elections, for instance, the government held on to a majority of seats but the popular vote was almost evenly split between the pro- and anti-Chavez camps.Chavez’s popularity slipped as the economy stalled, though it still hovered around 50 percent or higher during much of the past year. In that time, he’s waged a protracted fight against cancer and had to square off against the opposition’s first candidate ever chosen in a primary vote.

U.S. table grape import season “interesting and un … You might also be interested in Clementines in Charts: It’s almost ClemenTime for … Chile’s Federation of Fruit Producers (Fedefruta) has estimated the total economic losses related to Monday’s severe hailstorm will reach at least US$200 million.The weather event impacted fruit production across Chile’s central and southern regions, with cherries among the most affected.The hailstorm had three notable characteristics – the large area it affected, its duration (around 20 to 30 minutes), and the size of the hailstones.Fedefruta’s president Jorge Valenzuela highlighted that the central O’Higgins region, which was one of the worst-affected areas, holds roughly a quarter of the total land in Chile dedicated to fruit production, with 26.5 percent.”Of that percentage in the region, we detect an area severely damaged by hail, in the province of Cachapoal … one of the hearts of the fruit industry of our country which grows almost all the different horticultural crops that are produced in Chile: cherries, table and wine grapes, kiwifruit, nectarines, almonds, walnuts, among many others,” he said.He said that this area has been now classed as the ‘red zone’ due to the high level of damage. The area holds 40% of the region’s fruit-producing land and almost 10% of the national total.”Through the survey we carried out, we estimated that of these 30,000 hectares in the red zone, fruit losses are between 10 – 100 percent. Cherries and table grapes have received the most damage, followed by stonefruit,” he said.He added that further south in the country, in the Maule Norte and Ñuble region, which have around 10,000 hectares of blueberry production, there also appears to have been damage, not just from the hail but also from heavy rainfall.”In economic terms, we estimate that the losses will exceed US$200 million. In social terms, and as a collateral effect, we predict a significant loss of jobs on farms, with around 40,000 days’ worth of work less per month, given that they will not be able to work harvesting damaged fruit,” he said.In cherries alone, he estimates 10,000 days’ worth of work will be lost.”Remember that this phenomenon is still developing and that the effects of the damages may increase as more weather events of this type have been forecast,” he said.”The situation is extremely delicate. We have not seen a phenomenon of these dimensions that has impacted our fruit industry since 2003, just days from the start of harvests.”Undoubtedly, this hail event has compromised the fruit season that is about to start.” November 14 , 2018 Chile: Fruit exports contract in H1 as leading com … Chilean blueberries fetched lower prices in 2018-1 …
