Best Sneakers of Summer 2019Nike Adds Self-Lacing Adapt Tech to Huarache Shoe We’ve talked quite a bit on Geek.com about what makes for a great pop culture collaboration in the world of sneakers. Sometimes it’s as simple as re-releasing a dope retro sneaker sported by a superhero in a movie. Other times it involves exciting, vibrant colorways that mimic the aesthetic of the Seven Kingdoms’ finest. Pop culture crossovers are well-trodden ground at this point and as exciting as they are for fans of film, comics, television, and video games, it’s become rare to see something that feels innovative in the field.That changes with Nike’s announcement of their newest collaboration with Netflix juggernaut Stranger Things. The collection, which drops later this month just in time for the July 4 premiere of the show’s third season, features apparel and sneakers inspired by the world of the show. However, you aren’t just going to be getting a tee shirt with the Demagorgon on it or sneakers rocking the Eggo logo.Nike x ‘Stranger Things’ Hawkins High pack. (Photo Credit: Nike)Instead, Nike x Stranger Things is a proper throwback collection featuring two collections of sneakers, both inspired by the brand’s roots — sneakers that were making waves in the ‘80s that you’d see Dustin, Mike, Will, and Lucas wearing to school. The first line draws inspiration from Hawkins High School, featuring classic ‘70s Nike sneakers the Blazer, Tailwind, and Cortez. Each features the school’s green and orange colors as well as the Hawkins Tigers logo. The Blazer and Cortez each have a primary white base with accents and swooshes in the school colors while the Tailwind comes in a deep green with an orange swoosh logo. This collection will be available come June 27.Nike x ‘Stranger Things’ ‘OG’ Pack (Photo Credit: Nike)A few days later, on July 1, the second drops. This one features the same sneakers in new colorways inspired by the Fourth of July, 1985. The sneakers come in holiday-appropriate red (Cortez), white (Tailwind), and blue (Blazer). These kicks don’t feature the Hawkins logo but instead have the year stamped on the heel and feature a fireworks-speckled sock liner.Nike x ‘Stranger Things’ Hawkins High apparel (Photo Credit: Nike)In addition to the shoes there’s a dope line of apparel dropping meant to mimic Hawkins phys-ed uniforms. Don’t worry, gym uniforms are in now. Trust me, your cool friend who knows stuff about fashion/is assuming they’re cool now because why else would Nike make them? Nike is cool. If Nike says gym uniforms are cool, I believe them.Nike x ‘Stranger Things’ Hawkins High apparel (Photo Credit: Nike)Keep an eye out for the Nike x Stranger Things collection later this month on the Nike SNKRS app — the shoes and apparel are sure to sell out quick. And after that, cross your fingers and pray for a Stranger Things-inspired drop around Season 4 that includes two of the best sneakers of the late ‘80s — the Air Max 1 and Air Tech Challenge 2 — because that would be rad.More on Geek.com:Epic Games Launches ‘Fortnite’ Crossover With Air JordansNike Fit App Uses AR to Help You Determine the Right Shoe SizeNike Kyrie 5 ‘UFO’ Brings Conspiracy Theories to Sneakers Stay on target

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, February 26, 2018 – Montego Bay – Chief Public Health Inspector for Westmoreland, Steve Morris, says while leptospirosis is not at a crisis level, every effort should be made to ensure the disease is easily detected and speedily treated. Mr. Morris, who was speaking at a Jamaica Information Service (JIS) ‘Think Tank’ at the agency’s Montego Bay Regional Office on February 20, said health officials continue to remind the public of the dangers of swimming or wading in water which has resulted from flooding, or eating foods that might have been contaminated with animal urine.“We are also advising parents to look out for their children who we all know are prone to going into whatever water they see around them, all in the name of fun. Food, too, must be covered and protected from contamination, which again is dangerous for unsuspecting youngsters as well as adults. If you see any food item that looks suspect, throw it away as it could easily be contaminated,” he warned.Mr. Morris said they have been seeing an increase in the notifications for leptospirosis across the parish. “It is always on our radar, so we are looking at how best we can reach persons to reduce these notifications. Currently, we are looking at education as one of the better means of reaching persons, in addition to implementing a rodent-control programme in the township of Savanna-la-Mar,” he noted.He emphasised that the rodent control programme has to be a collaborative effort between commercial entities, stakeholders, the Westmoreland Municipal Corporation and other agencies, adding that “the health department cannot, by itself, financially sustain such a programme”.Mr. Morris said leptospirosis is an infectious disease caused by bacteria that could lead to possible fatal infection of the kidney, liver, brain, lung or heart. He said while it cannot be spread from human to human, it can be contracted through exposure to the urine or body fluid of infected animals.Meanwhile, Veterinary Public Health Inspector, Jodi-Ann Harris, said that leptospirosis can be fatal if it is incorrectly diagnosed or not detected and treated “very quickly”. Ms. Harris stressed that a big part of the problem is that the symptoms of leptospirosis are similar to other illnesses, notably the flu, and which can oftentimes go untreated. She is appealing to Jamaicans to visit the nearest hospital or health centre and get tested if they experience any such symptoms.“If you are experiencing high fever, severe headache, chills, muscle aches, vomiting, jaundice, abdominal pain, diarrhoea and rash, go and see the doctor right away,” she implored.“Parents are also being advised that if any of these symptoms do occur, medical attention should be sought right away. The disease should be treated with antibiotics as soon as it is detected,” Ms. Harris said. She pointed out that failure to expeditiously treat leptospirosis can result in kidney damage, meningitis, liver failure and respiratory distress. “It can also be fatal,” she added.Release: JIS
American Soybean Association (ASA) leaders attending World Trade Organization (WTO) negotiations in Cancun, Mexico, today expressed disappointment that Brazil and a group of other developing countries were unwilling to open their markets and reform their own production-distorting subsidies.”What we are seeing here at the negotiations is a group of developing countries, led by Brazil, making one-sided demands of developed countries, but refusing to put their own policies on the table,” said Ron Heck, ASA President and a soybean farmer from Perry, Iowa. “If Brazil and these other countries continue to be uncompromising about opening their own markets and disciplining their subsidies, the WTO negotiations will go over the cliff and Brazil will be responsible for pushing them over.”ASA and other producer groups have stated that the degree to which they will support reductions in U.S. domestic support programs is dependent on the degree to which markets are opened and tariffs are harmonized in both developed and developing countries. Improved market access is key for U.S. producers since U.S. agriculture tariffs average only 12 percent, while agriculture tariffs in the rest of the world average 62 percent.ASA and other producer groups have also stated that net agriculture exporting developing countries, such as Brazil and Argentina, must be subject to the same domestic support disciplines as developed countries. Under current WTO rules, self-designated developing countries are able to exempt from discipline their own production and trade-distorting domestic support policies, even when the countries are world-class exporters.”An interim report prepared by USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (ARS), at the request of Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), identified several of the programs being used by Brazil to develop its agricultural production and exports, but which are not subject to disciplines under the current WTO loophole for developing countries,” said Heck. “FAS and other reports indicate that the Government of Brazil will provide the equivalent of $6.9 billion in production credits to Brazilian farmers in the 2003/04 season at sharply subsidized interest rates. Medium and large producers are eligible for loans at 8.75 percent, and small producers are eligible for loans at 5.75 percent, compared to the national index interest rate of 26.5 percent. This reflects an interest rate subsidy of 17.75 percent to 20.75 percent.”The FAS report also identifies that Brazil imposes prohibitive taxes on farmland that is not brought into production, essentially forcing producers to clear and plant new acreage,” Heck continued. “This policy is a powerful production incentive that is artificially driving the rapid increase in Brazilian production and exports of soybeans and other commodities.”Time is running out at these negotiations,” concluded Heck. “The United States already has an open market and is fueling the world economy, as evidenced by our $503 billion trade deficit. The United States is willing to further open our market and reduce trade-distorting domestic support, but this must be met with substantial market access gains in developing country markets. It must also be met with a commitment that net agriculture exporting developing countries, such as Brazil and Argentina, are willing to subject their own production distorting policies to the same disciplines as developed countries.”
But as Advanstar and UBM’s events portfolio marched ahead, PR Newswire’s performance was flat and its Other Marketing Services businesses declined 8-percent. The losses there were mainly due to a cut in online revenue, “reflect[ing] a decision to focus on Tech products with higher quality leads.” Amid a series of major changes, UBM’s revenue shot up 26 percent in the first half of 2015. The gains were largely driven by the integration of Advanstar and the progression of its “events first” strategy, the company says. All of that change came as several executive leadership positions were vacated, then filled with new personnel. UBM has appointed a new CFO, and new CEOs of PR Newswire and its Americas division in recent months. In fact, as a whole, UBM’s 120-plus major events performed similarly well. Driving almost two-thirds of the company’s revenue, events grew 3.3 percent, with much of that growth attributable to the events first strategy put into place in late 2014. As part of that shift, the company has focused on its larger shows, selling or closing almost 40 events and several related lines of business in order to consolidate resources. UBM also bought three events during the period, and is in the process of rolling out a number of operational changes. While underlying revenue actually declined 4.1 percent to about $710 million, the October acquisition of U.S. event producer and publisher, Advanstar, accounted for a significant portion of UBM’s additional $148 million through June. The division boosted its events revenue—totaling almost three-quarters of its total income—by 2.9 percent in the first half. Integration efforts with its new parent company are ahead of schedule, as well, UBM reports. A favorable foreign exchange environment also added to top line growth in the first half, the company notes.
It’s being called a marine heat wave. The combination of the strongest El Niño in recent history and the warm water anomaly known as the Blob generated the greatest amount of warm ocean water that has ever been recorded, possibly affecting marine life up and down the West Coast.Listen nowSea surface temperature observations in late July 2016 show higher-than-normal temperatures lingering in the North Pacific and Bering Sea. (Courtesy of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Centers for Environmental Prediction)New research has now linked the two phenomena, with each believed to be alternately affecting the other through the atmosphere and the ocean.El Niño is the warming of the equatorial Pacific Ocean and it can affect wind, temperature and precipitation patterns around the globe. While the latest El Niño did bring some needed precipitation to parts of the drought-stricken West Coast, it was also blamed for flooding, mudslides and other damage in California, according to an ABC News story in January.After peaking in late 2015 with sea surface temperatures of at least 2 degrees Celsius above normal, the latest El Niño has disappeared. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center in Maryland recently reported that sea surface temperatures have dropped to below average in the eastern equatorial Pacific over the last two months.But while El Niño is dead, the Blob lives on.“To put it in a little bit more colorful terms, kind of a lingering hangover,” said Nicholas Bond, a research meteorologist at the University of Washington and the state climatologist for Washington.Bond said latest sea surface temperature measurements show that unusually warm conditions are still persisting, especially in the Gulf of Alaska and the Bering Sea.“For the Gulf of Alaska, 2.5 degrees C warmer than normal and in parts of the Bering Sea it’s 4 degrees C, or 7 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than normal,” Bond said. “I noticed some temperatures there near the west coast of Alaska that were 16 degrees C. That’s over 60 degrees (Fahrenheit) in the Bering Sea.”Bond first identified the warm water anomaly three years ago and nicknamed it The Blob. He said unusual weather patterns have allowed the ocean to retain that heat.“It got quite a bit warmer than normal, quite deep depths, as deep as 300 meters or so,” Bond said. “There was just a tremendous reservoir of this extra heat that is taking a long time to go away.”That means that Alaskans, especially along the coast, could expect warmer weather this summer.Climate hypothesis to explain the generation, evolution and persistence of the North Pacific warm anomaly between the winters of 2013/14 and 2014/15. (Di Lorenzo & Mantua, Nature Climate Change, 2016)New research suggests a link between the Blob in the North Pacific and the former El Niño in the tropical Pacific.“El Niño was kind of in the middle of the event in terms of changing the pattern of ocean warming and making it last for three years,” said Nate Mantua, a climate and fisheries research scientist at NOAA’s Southwest Fisheries Science Center in Santa Cruz, California.In a paper published in July in the journal Nature Climate Change, Mantua and his co-author, Emanuele Di Lorenzo of the Georgia Institute of Technology, examined the connections between the two separate ocean events despite the great distance between them.The Blob’s formation in the Western Pacific’s extratropics, or mid-latitudes beyond the tropics, in 2013 could have had a small influence on the development of the weak tropical El Niño of 2014. Then, during the stronger El Niño that developed in 2015, warm temperatures at the equator remotely affected the storm track and weather patterns in the North Pacific extratropics.“The El Niño influence favors a much stormier weather pattern that includes a lot of wind from the south along the coast of the Pacific Northwest into Alaska,” Mantua said. “That is what caused the offshore warm Blob to move inshore and to expand.”Mantua calls it a marine heat wave, and he said the amount of warm water was dramatically more than any other event in the historical record dating back to 1880.The Blob and El Niño tag team is the prime suspect for several unusual biological events along the West Coast in the last three years. They include sea bird die-offs, giant algal blooms, demoic acid in shellfish, whale and marine mammal strandings, and low salmon returns and lightweight salmon.“This is all indicative of a lot of stress on the marine food web lower productivity that’s in keeping with this idea of what warm water typically does,” Mantua said. “It just reduces the ability to get nutrients up into the sunlit upper ocean and cuts down on the abundance of the lipid-rich, sub-Arctic species that we find at the base of the food web.”Mantua said there’s no evidence yet that global warming prompted the recent arrival of the Blob. But he and his co-author do believe that such events may happen more often and with greater intensity as the ocean warms.“We see that the energy in the climate patterns that caused the warm Blob, it increases,” Mantua said. “By the end of this century, the energy increases about 16 percent over that from the late 20th century.”Short-term relief may just be around the corner. Temperatures in the equatorial Pacific Ocean are cooling, finally signaling an end to one of the strongest El Niños in 20 years. Bond said there’s an increased chance that the pendulum will swing the other way this winter toward La Niña, or equatorial cooling.“And, if it has the usual sort of atmospheric pressure and wind patterns associated with it, then we should continue to see continued moderation of temperatures in the Northeast Pacific, Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, and off the Pacific Northwest Coast,” Bond said.“And more wind out of the north, more cold storms, and that could start moving the Blob out,” Mantua said.Mantua notes that current weather patterns are already much different than those that created the Blob. He said we’ll know more in six to nine months.“So, La Niña would be good for bringing things back to normal, maybe even getting us a little cooler than normal,” Mantua said.
5454 Replies Update from KTOO and Alaska Public Media staff The National Weather Service has issued a tsunami warning for virtually the entire Gulf of Alaska coastline after a magnitude 8.2 earthquake struck. The weather service advises people on the coast to move inland to higher ground. 5151 likes 6969 Retweets Update: 3:33 amThe National Weather Service has lifted the tsunami warning for coastal Alaska. It has been downgraded to a tsunami advisory.That means that while a wave has been recorded in the Gulf of Alaska, it’s not big enough to require evacuations.The Tsunami Warning Center says a wave of about six inches was observed in Kodiak. Residents are warned that though the wave is not large enough to require evacuations, they should be cautious near the water, and there may be dangerous and unexpected tides and currents.The wave was caused by a magnitude 7.9 earthquake that struck just after 12:30 am this morning, about 175 miles SE of Kodiak, at a depth of about 12 miles.The warning prompted tsunami sirens to go off in Sitka, Kodiak and Unalaska, and residents evacuated to higher ground.

Chintalapalem (Suryapet): A farmer, Govinda Raju, of Revuru village in the district has adopted a different method to remove weeds from his six-acre field. Most of the farmers in Chintalapalem and Mellacheruvu mandals cultivate chilli and cotton crops and always find it difficult to remove weeds from their fields. They usually use an implement called ‘Guntaka’ by tying it to their oxen where they have to shell out Rs 600 per day to use the implement. Also Read – Hyderabad: Wall collapse in Kukatpally damages four cars Advertise With Us Govinda Raju, who doesn’t have oxen, thought in a different way and attached the implement Guntaka to his two-wheeler by spending Rs 2,000 and finished removing weeds in his field by spending just a litre of petrol. He informed that the idea had helped him reduce the expenditure from Rs 600 a day to Rs 100 besides saving the time.
Share Ilana Panich-Linsman/KUTCameras monitor the detention facility in Karnes City.The American Civil Liberties Union has released a report based on some 30,000 pages of internal records from the Department of Homeland Security between 2009 to 2014, obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. What they’ve found is what they call “the pervasive abuse and neglect of unaccompanied immigrant children detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.”Mitra Ebadolahi, an attorney with the ACLU, says the documents offer a glimpse into a federal immigration system marked by brutality and lawlessness.“The documents reveal mistreatment that is neglectful at best and intentionally cruel at worst,” she says, “including verbal abuse, such as calling immigrant children ‘dogs’ or ‘garbage.’ One migrant minor who was pregnant was told that her child would contaminate this country. That’s a quote. Children were threatened with rape and death.”She says the documents include allegations of physical abuse – small children were shot with tasers and run over by patrol vehicles – and sexual abuse. Ebadolahi says in one case, a teenage girl was subjected to a search in which border agents forcefully spread her legs and touched her genitals.U.S. Customs and Border Protection facilities are not equipped for detention lasting more than 72 hours, she says.“The facilities are freezing cold. They were overcrowded. There’s evidence that they were unsanitary,” she says. “They were not given potable water. They were not given bedding, or necessary medical care.”Ebadolahi says the abuses could have come to light sooner if documents were more accessible to the public.“The government has fought tooth and nail to resist responding to our [Freedom of Information Act] request, which has necessitated years of litigation in federal court in order to get these documents,” she says. “Part of the delay is because the agencies are not being forthcoming, and are doing everything that they can to avoid providing the public with timely information about how they’re using our tax dollars.”U.S. Customs and Border Protection responded to the ACLU report, saying, “The false accusations made by the ACLU against the previous administration are unfounded and baseless,” adding that many of the instances outlined in the report were allegations.Written by Jen Rice.

Surgeons can then use a handheld radiation detector (gamma probe) to precisely locate these seeds at the time of surgery and thereby remove the cancer safely and effectively, virtually without damaging tissues and organs near the affected area.“RSL (radioactive seed localization) is a safe, accurate, and effective technique,” according to Dr. James Jakub, the senior author of the study and a surgeon at Mayo Clinic. “RSL has the potential to be adapted to most lesions amenable to a percutaneous (under the skin) approach.”This advance in technology can be applied to a wide variety of cancers. For example, metastatic melanoma deposits scattered throughout the body can be identified by imaging studies and seeds implanted via CT-guided or ultrasound-guided techniques. Surgeons can then precisely locate these tumor deposits and remove them without significantly disturbing nearby vital structures.Radioactive seed localization is also a flexible technology. It can be completed at the same time that other imaging studies are done. Surgeons then have up to five days to identify these seeds and excise the tumor. The radiation dose from the seeds is so negligible that surgeons removing the tumor need no extra protective covering.The early results of the study demonstrate complete destruction of the metastasized tissues with no mortality and only two minor postsurgical infections. The scheduling of the placement of the seed need not be done on the same day as the PET and/or CT scans are performed, thereby maximizing convenience to the patient without sacrificing clinical outcome.Radioactive seed localization offers the potential to change the way complex tumors are treated, owing to its safety, convenience to the patient, relatively low dose of radiation administered and success in excising the entire affected tissue.For more information: www.SurgRad.com.

Security Council to impose an asset freeze and travel ban on the Libyans to send a signal ahead of new peace talks on June 8 “that spoilers of the political process will not be tolerated.” Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Sponsored Stories Libya has been torn among powerful armed militias that have left the country with two rival parliaments and governments, while groups allied to the Islamic State extremist group grow in strength.Libya’s U.N. Ambassador Ibrahim Dabbashi wrote a letter to council members Thursday opposing sanctions on Othman Mlekta, a militia commander whose forces ssattacked parliament in May 2014, and Abdulrahman Swehli, a Misrata politician who supports a rival government in the capital Tripoli run by Islamist-allied Misrata militias.Two diplomats, speaking on condition of anonymity because the process is private, said Russia and China raised objections ahead of the Friday afternoon deadline.A spokesman for Russia’s U.N. Mission said the request was put on “technical hold” for an inter-agency review in Moscow, adding that this applies in all sanctions cases. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.The Misrata militias pushed the elected parliament out of Tripoli and it now meets in the eastern city of Tobruk. Government forces and allied militias are also battling Islamist radical groups who operate in Benghazi, Libya’s second largest city. Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

The U.N. envoy to Libya, Bernardino Leon, who has been mediating talks, has urged the warring parties to agree on a unity government before the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan on June 17. The next round of negotiations are scheduled to begin on June 8 in Rabat, Morocco.The United States said on behalf of the four countries in a note to council members that “a balanced and progressive approach to sanctioning spoilers — leaving more senior names for another time — could give a much needed push to those seeking to participate in Rabat.”According to the four countries, Mlekta, whose surname is also spelled Maliqta, is the commander of the Zintani Qaqa Brigade, a militia that attacked parliament using trucks mounted with anti-aircraft guns, mortars and rockets on May 18, 2014, and throughout last summer carried out missile attacks against civilians and Libyan oil facilities.Swehli reportedly pressed for an attack by Libya Dawn militias from Misrata against the oil port of Sidra in February to disrupt peace talks and sought to carry out sieges of government ministries by revolutionary militias, the note said.“His actions have inflamed the continued conflict in Libya and undermined the successful completion of Libya’s political transition facilitated by the U.N.-led dialogue process,” it said.

No men, please we’re skint! Indian airline set to recruit only female flight attendants because they weigh less – and cost less.A flight staffed entirely by women? Is this a sexist joke, a lads’ mag dream or a feminist utopia? No, this is reality, or at least is set to become so in India by 2020. If you’re set to jet between Delhi and Chennai or hop from Lucknow to Goa with GoAir in the next few years, look out for a lack of blokes serving the diet cokes. And if you’re a man on the make for a job indicating that the nearest emergency exit may be behind you, forget about GoAir.The Indian low-cost carrier recently announced that it would in future be recruiting only female flight attendants. Why? Because the heavier a plane is, the more fuel it has to burn, which costs more. And in general, geezers are heavier than girls, so GoAir is looking for lightweight ladies, presumably preferably with less-full frames than the leanest of lads, to save them 30 million rupees (£329,000) a year in fuel costs.The no-frills operator said that no present cabin stewards would be shown the door, but every position recruited for on its 80 new aircraft by 2020 will be filled by the female of the species. The airline revealed that for each ‘extra’ kilogram of load that one of its planes carries costs it an additional three rupees per hour of flight. In cost-cutting drive, it has already slashed the size of its in-flight magazine by 50%, while its planes fly with their water tanks half-full.Do you think women-only flights are a good idea?
