Clark Public Utilities to offer a way to track energy use

first_imgA pilot program set to launch this fall will give Clark Public Utilities customers a closer look at their energy usage, and a chance to see how they stack up against their neighbors.In an effort to entice people to conserve, the utility will send periodic “home energy reports” to about 20,000 customers, detailing their usage and suggestions on how to cut back. A separate Facebook application will allow customers to compare their results online with others, or even coordinate friendly energy-saving competitions.Utilities across the country have joined the program, crafted by Virginia-based conservation company OPower, in recent years. The Bonne-ville Power Administration helped bring Southwest Washington into the mix earlier this year, kicking in $300,000 to help two local utilities and a Puget Sound-area utility roll out their own versions.The idea, said BPA program lead Summer Goodwin, is to help people tackle energy conservation from a new vantage point.“Usually, we’re talking about technology,” Goodwin said. “Here, we’re talking about human or organizational behavior.”Plenty of people have taken it upon themselves to use less energy where they can. But a little competition doesn’t hurt.Here’s how it works: Clark Public utilities will initially select a pool of 30,000 customers who might be able to cut back on excess energy usage based on past history, said Larry Blaufus, a senior manager with the utility. About 20,000 of those will start receiving home energy reports in the mail by September and October.The utility will keep track of how much they cut back, he said, using the other 10,000 customers (who won’t receive reports) as a sort of control group to gauge the difference.last_img

Emilia Clarke was cast in RDJs Iron Man 3 before script changes

first_imgIt was well speculated that the script of Iron Man 3 went through several changes before it was finalized for the production. Many have even stated that Maya Hansen was originally intended to play the main antagonist in the movie. The role was played in the movie by Ellen Brandt and if you remember Iron Man 3, you might recall that the part was too small that one could wonder why the actress was brought in for a script read if she was not the principal character.Meanwhile, Drew Pearce cleared the air by commenting on his own post by stating the following:”To those of you wondering: when you do early table reads, a lot of the new roles aren’t cast, will change etc. Friends of the production come in to help out, just so you can hear the words out loud, even if they’re not the person who’d play the role onscreen due to age etc. Emilia, only one season into GoT at the time, kindly sat in. And was great, btw.”Well, Emilia Clarke debut in the Marvel world did not happen for some reasons but fans were pleased to see her portraying the role of Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s Game of Thrones for eight seasons. Emilia played the character gracefully and in the years to come, we are going to remember her last speech which she gave to her Dothraki clan. Game of Thrones season 8 episode 6 promoGame of Thrones (@gameofthrones/Instagram)In addition to this, Emilia Clarke was once considered to star as Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey movie. As earlier reported, the acclaimed actress denied the role because of the nudity.After Game of Thrones, Emilia has several interesting projects lined up. In 2019, she is going to star as Kate in the upcoming rom-com movie, Last Christmas. She is also set to share screen space with Jack Huston and Sophie Lowe in Phillip Noyce upcoming thriller movie, Above Suspicion. Emilia ClarkeHBO Asia Official TwitterGame of Thrones star Emilia Clarke was reportedly considered to star alongside Robert Downey Jr. in MCU’s Iron Man 3 movie. If this could have happened, then Emilia could have gotten her very own Marvel fandom.Earlier today, Iron Man 3 co-writer, Drew Pearce dropped some huge trivia about his time working with Robert Downey Jr.’s Marvel movie. In his Instagram post, director Pearce posted a picture of himself a script read for the very first script of Iron Man 3. In the caption, he wrote “Downey, Cheadle, Emilia Clarke (long story, the script changed)…”It means that in the very early discussions of Marvel’s Iron Man 3, there was a character written for Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke. Since there is no more information about the part, we can only guess as what Emilia was supposed to play in Iron Man 3 movie.last_img

Rahim loses hearing after BCL beating

first_imgRahim Farayezi. Photo: Prothom Alo video grabBangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) leaders and activists allegedly beat up a fourth year student of Shaheed Suhrawardy College in the city on Monday when he protested against extra money being collected for filling up forms of their bachelor’s examination.Bangladesh Chhatra League is the student wing of ruling Bangladesh Awami League (AL).“They [BCL men] beat me up so badly that I cannot hear anything now. I went to a private hospital where the physicians told me I would need long-term treatment,” said the victim, Rahim Farayezi, 27.“I am not scared, by they beat me up badly. They also said they would hand me over to the police, saying that I was a member of Chhatra Shibir [student wing of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami]. Then they released me and told me not to go back. But I have exams,” he said.Rahim told Prothom Alo that they [the candidates] deposited Tk 4,675 with the bank as exam fees.The respective departments were t provide them with forms free of coast, but they had to collect these from BCL leaders at Tk 500 each, and that too without a receipt, said the victim.He said he, along with several candidates, talked to the college principal Sheikh Abdul Kuddus about this, but the principal said he could do nothing.Rahim Farayezi and a few other students then went to speak to the BCL leaders around 11:00am on Monday and an argument ensued. At one stage, the BCL men beat him up.The principal said, “Only the departments are supposed to provide the students with the forms.”Responding to the allegations of BCL men beating the victim, he said, “No one has filed any complaints. I was at the college till afternoon.”College BCL president Sohel Rana denied the allegations, claiming that Farayezi probably had been beaten by outsiders and his organisation could not be held responsible for that.He would resign from his post if any such misdeed is proven, he said.last_img

British billionaire named in MeToo scandal

first_imgIn this file photo taken on 01 December, 2014 British businessman Philip Green poses for pictures on the red carpet upon arrival to attend the British Fashion Awards 2014 in London. Photo: AFPBritish fashion industry billionaire Philip Green was named by a member of the House of Lords on Thursday as the businessman who used an injunction to suppress the publication of sexual harassment allegations by five employees.The allegation against 66-year-old Green — whose international clothing empire includes the popular Topshop and Topman brands — was made after media cried foul about being “gagged” by rich and powerful tycoons.The emerging scandal has also prompted Prime Minister Theresa May to accuse unnamed employers of abusing non-disclosure agreements (NDAs).Several members of parliament threatened to reveal the company boss’s name after The Daily Telegraph gave its entire front page Wednesday to a story headlined: “The British #MeToo scandal which cannot be revealed.”The newspaper said the second-most senior judge in England issued a temporary injunction Tuesday against the publication of sexual harassment and racial abuse allegations against their boss.But House of Lords peer Peter Hain told a hushed session Thursday that he was using his “parliamentary privilege” to disclose the alleged businessman’s name.”I feel it is my duty under parliamentary privilege to name Philip Green as the individual in question given that the media have been subject to an injunction preventing publication of full details of a story which is clearly in the public interest,” he said.Hain said he learned the name after being “contacted by someone intimately involved in the case”.Arcadia Group, the holding company controlled by Philip Green, was not immediately able to comment on the allegations when contacted by AFP.- ‘Brit #MeToo’The Daily Telegraph said the accused man had hired seven lawyers and spent nearly £500,000 ($645,000, 565,000 euros) in legal fees to settle the complaints using non-disclosure agreements.It followed up the story with another Thursday in which a woman identified only as a “well-known socialite” said she believed the same businessman slid a hand up her skirt at a function a decade ago.The mass-selling tabloid The Sun devoted three pages Thursday to the “Brit #MeToo gagging scandal” headlined “Gags to Riches”.The popular i commuter newspaper called it a “MeToo cover-up” while The Times interviewed a former assistant to Harvey Weinstein who exposed the US film mogul’s behaviour despite signing an NDA.The case “highlights the weaponisation of NDAs and how they are being used unethically,” former Weinstein assistant Zelda Perkins told The Times.Non-disclosure agreements are signed by companies and their executives to prevent business secrets from leaking out.Their use has been a source of debate since the MeToo movement first gained momentum in the wake of the Weinstein allegations last year.They were used by Weinstein and lawyers for US President Donald Trump with porn actress Stormy Daniels and at least one other woman.May stressed in parliament Wednesday that NDAs “cannot stop people from whistleblowing”.May was asked to take a stand on The Daily Telegraph case during a question-and-answer session with MPs during which several spoke up for the paper.The British premier said she could not weigh in on ongoing court hearings but vowed to “bring forward measures for consideration, for consultation to seek to improve the regulation around non-disclosure agreements”.The Daily Telegraph said the government’s new “consultation document” on NDAs will be published next week.last_img

Houston School Board Elects Diana Dávila As President

first_imgLaura IsenseeThe HISD board of trustees elected new officers for 2019: Secretary Sergio Lira; Second Vice President Elizabeth Santos; President Diana Dávila; First Vice President Holly Vilaseca; and Assistant Secretary Sue Deigaard.The Houston School Board has new officers to set the tone and direction of the group. On Thursday, Trustee Diana Dávila was elected as president, which means she can set the agenda.As she accepted the gavel at Thursday’s meeting, Dávila alluded to the district’s challenges and criticism of the board.“You’re right there have been choppy waters, I’m going on my sixteenth year and there have always been choppy waters, there are always sharks in the water,” she said.Dávila previously served on the HISD board of trustees from 2003 to 2010. A former teacher, Dávila was reelected in 2015.The slate of new officers reflected the racial divide on the board: The four top spots all went to the board’s Latino members. None of the board’s black trustees were nominated, though they’ve all held leadership positions in the past few years. The school board is also moving forward with hiring an executive coach, so members can better lead the state’s largest school district. For months, the Houston school board has been criticized for their behavior. And this month, Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted that their leadership is a joke.One candidate is the state’s deputy education commissioner. Some parents like Karina Quesada De Leon spoke against that idea, since HISD faces the threat of a state takeover.“Whatever problems you have now will only be made worse. And this will certainly not benefit our most neglected students. Don’t shoot yourselves in the shoot and invite him into your house — you will live to regret it,” Quesada De Leon said.The board plans to consider candidates and make a final selection in February. Kay Douglas, a consultant with the Texas Association of School Boards, offered her services at the board’s meeting.“I would like to work with you collectively, but also individually, to deal with you as the competent professionals that you are and to stand beside you,” Douglas said.

A common initiative of the Goethe-Instituts in South Asia and a project realised in an alliance with regional partners Wild City.  Performing on Wednesday, Space/Ghost is a Dhaka based solo electronic project. Although a classically trained pianist, French electronica moves him the most. Big City Harmonics is the solo project of Rohan Hastak – a former guitarist turned live electronica act. When Pandas Attack is a Delhi-based graphic designer Ankur Chauhan’s solo project. It started about 3 years ago, with a desire to put down thoughts quickly, a form of creative note keeping. Messing around with recording guitar parts for a while, he progressed to making full tracks without any actual instruments. This experiment gained momentum once he connected electronic music with an organic soundscape.WHERE : Hauz Khas SocialWHEN:  29 Octoberlast_img

LSD Cult for Children The Rise and Fall of The Family

first_imgIn 2016 a documentary by filmmaker Rosie Jones put the spotlight on an Australian doomsday cult called “The Family.” Although The Family has followers to this day, not many people were aware of its existence. It was created in the early 1960s and operated by Anne Hamilton-Byrne, her husband Bill Hamilton-Byrne, and Raynor Johnson, an Oxford physician and prominent member of the Australian elite. The cult taught a mixture of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity, proclaiming Anne Hamilton-Byrne as the Messiah, or the female reincarnation of Jesus. Later in its existence the cult focused primarily on the gathering and indoctrination of children. Her charming and charismatic personality attracted a number of followers, especially from the high social circles in Melbourne.Hamilton-Byrne adopted 28 children, and at least half of them believed that she was their biological mother. She said that she loved children — she might have liked the idea of having them, but she had some perverse ideas on raising them. Her now-grown-up children recall being punished or starved for the smallest disobedience, as well as being regularly injected with LSD.Melbourne, Australia.Born Evelyn Edwards in 1921, she had a dysfunctional childhood. Her mother was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, and she barely knew her father. Another misfortune in her life was the tragic death of her first husband, in a traffic accident. In 1960, Anne discovered yoga.At the time, new age-style soul-searching was quite popular among intellectuals and academics, and feminism was on the rise. Tactically, Edwards opened a yoga studio in a suburb of Melbourne where she taught mostly middle-aged women who were bored and unhappy in their marriages.Edwards offered love to anyone who needed it, and she was charming enough for people to trust her. She encouraged women to leave their husbands, and invited everyone to follow her.Things got more serious when Edwards met Raynor Johnson, master of the Methodist Queen’s College at the University of Melbourne. He was also deeply interested in spiritualism and took yoga lessons with Edwards. He was taken in by her charm, and besides bringing her more and more people, Johnson also offered his property, “Santiniketan,” at the outskirts of Melbourne for philosophical discussions among the group.Ferny Creek, the suburb where Raynor Johnson had his house. Photo by Davidarfonjones CC BY-SA 3.0While on LSD, Edwards became convinced that she was the female reincarnation of Jesus. The members who joined what Edwards started calling “The Family” were mostly rich people who not only made hefty donations to the sect, but also gifted their leader with money, houses, and properties around Australia and the U.S.Anne started preaching that a Third World War was coming — another LSD fueled fantasy — that was going to be so destructive that they, The Family, would have to guide the few people who survive.In 1968, Anne and her partner Bill changed their surnames to Hamilton-Byrne. They began gathering infants, some natural children of the sect’s members, and others acquired through legal adoption. Adam Lancaster, who grew up in the cult, told CBS: “Under the influence of LSD, she had this vision that she’s got to collect all these children from birth.”“Because the end of the world was coming,” recollects Dave Whitaker, another cult survivor. Hamilton-Byrne set about preparing the children to educate anyone who survived her Armageddon.Anne Hamilton-Byrne’s vision of raising a “master race” that would survive the impending apocalypse came to her during an LSD trip.The adoption procedures in Australia at the time were poorly regulated, and a number of doctors, social workers, and lawyers who were members of The Family made sure the process ran smoothly. Birth certificates were forged so that all the children would take the name Hamilton-Byrne.“You had babies born in cult hospitals, delivered by cult midwives, handed over to cult social workers,” said Lex de Man, one of the two detectives who worked on bringing charges against Hamilton-Byrne.Top 10 Notorious CultsAt the age of 14, all children went through the cult’s initiation ritual which involved giving them LSD for the first time. After that, the children were frequently given huge doses of the drug.Deprived of happiness, love, care, and the right to childhood, the kids lived in a trauma that was increased throughout their teenage years. Many of them developed anxiety, depression, and social withdrawal.Sarah Moore, an adopted daughter of leader Anne Hamilton-Byrne, blames her illness on mistreatment by the cult. May 15, 2014. Photo by Eddie Jim/Fairfax Media via Getty ImagesAlthough there were investigators looking into the sect, there wasn’t enough evidence against Anne until 1987. Her “favorite daughter,” Sarah Hamilton-Byrne, got expelled from The Family at the age of 17 for rebellion and lack of obedience.Soon after, read more

Go homebased and get a bigger share of your commission survey

first_img<< Previous PostNext Post >> Go home-based and get a bigger share of your commission: survey Tuesday, March 13, 2018 Share Posted bycenter_img A recent nationwide survey of home based agents funded by The Travel Agent Next Door and conducted by an independent research company shows that the majority of home-based agents are earning more than they did working in a bricks-and-mortar agency.No doubt this is a major contributing factor to the growth of the home-based retail travel industry here in Canada, following the trend in other markets including the UK and the U.S. According to the survey an estimated 37% of travel agents in Canada are now independent, home-based contractors.A significant 61% of agents reported that they earned 10% – 30% more than in the past working at a bricks-and-mortar location, and 23.5% said they are earning 30%+.The second annual independent nationwide survey of Canadian hosted travel agents, conducted in January 2018, tripled in response size, making the results much more meaningful than the previous year.The survey results also show that 85% of home-based agents have the opportunity to earn 50% or more of the available commission and 47% said they can earn 75% or more of the available commission.The majority of home-based agents surveyed, 72.6%, said they earn a greater share of commission as a home-based agent compared to working in a travel agency.When asked to rate their current compensation package with their host agency, 73.7% said they were ‘mostly to 100% satisfied’, and 25.4% said they were 100% satisfied with their compensation.The survey also explored the costs to agents to join host agencies, beyond the monthly or annual fees. Most agents are getting most services covered by their base fee.The survey also asked agents about the monthly website fee they pay to their host agency. About eight out of 10 (79%) of agents who responded to this question said they don’t pay a monthly fee for their website.When asked if they pay a monthly marketing fee to their host agency, 82% of agents who responded to this question said they do not pay an additional marketing fee to their host agent because it is included in their monthly fee.The survey also asked the question: ‘What is the invoicing fee you pay to your host agency?’ More than 85% of the agents who responded to this question do not pay an invoicing fee to their host agency.

Recession no deterrence to Qantas Virgin mergers

first_img<a href=”http://www.etbtravelnews.global/click/29e37/” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://adsvr.travelads.biz/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=10&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a> Source = e-Travel Blackboard: S.F A new wave of mergers is likely next year as conditions improve for European airlines, but the recession is still too fresh for carriers to consolidate this year, according to SAS group. But with pressure building on carriers to cut costs and boost traffic, many airlines remain open to the prospect reports Bloomberg. The CEO of SAS Group, Mats Jansson, said in an interview this week that following the losses of European carriers during the recession, it was simply “too early” to consider any merges this year. SAS own Scandinavian Airlines, and only survived the losses incurred by the airline due to share sales that gave greater control to the Swedish, Danish and Norwegian governments. “When companies feel they’ve done their homework, they’re in good shape and the market is stable, then boards will start to look at the acquisition list, but not now,” he said. But many airlines are already considering consolidation, with Virgin, Qantas and LOT this week all saying they were exploring their options. Virgin CEO Steve Ridgway, who attended the annual meeting of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) this week, said that U.S. and European mergers were challenging the airline’s position in the North Atlantic market, and as such it was exploring its own options. An inter-continental deal was the preferred option for Australian based Qantas, according to CEO Alan Joyce, who also attended the IATA meeting, adding that it would be “a great asset for anyone.” “Consolidation isn’t easy to do and cross-border inter- continental mergers have not occurred yet, but I think they will and Qantas will be at the forefront of that,” he said. Polish carrier LOT, which is predicting a return to profit after two years of losses, has attracted interest from certain airlines and investment funds, and is looking for a quick merge, said CEO Sebastian Mikosz. Ridgway also hinted at the possibility of Singapore Airlines Ltd. offering up its 49 percent stake in Virgin Atlantic, an airline currently outside any global groupings, as the carrier looks towards the expanding Indian and Chinese markets, but said it would not be happening any time soon.“Singapore Airlines is a great shareholder, and I don’t think they’re in any hurry to do that,” he said. “At the end of the day it’s down to them, but it could be an opportunity.”last_img
