Massive winter storm bringing snow cold to huge swath of US

first_imgEastern Massachusetts and most of Rhode Island were bracing for as much as 18 inches of snow, with snow falling at a rate of 3 inches per hour possible. The National Weather Service warned of wind gusts hitting near 70 mph.The Eversource electric utility said more than 5,500 homes and businesses were without power at midmorning Thursday in Provincetown, Massachusetts, on the outermost tip of Cape Cod, which was being lashed with hurricane-force wind gusts.Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said more than 100 warming centers have been opened in 34 towns across the state. Connecticut has 634 state plow trucks and 250 contractors working to clear the highways.The massive storm began two days ago in the Gulf of Mexico, first hitting the Florida Panhandle. It has prompted thousands of canceled flights, shuttered schools and businesses and sparked fears of coastal flooding and power outages.Wind gusts strong enough to cause downed trees and power lines were predicted in places where the National Weather Service has issued blizzard warnings. They include the Delmarva Peninsula, which includes parts of Delaware, Virginia and Maryland; coastal New Jersey; eastern Long Island, New York; and coastal eastern New England.More than two-thirds of flights in and out airports in the New York City area and Boston were canceled. The airline-tracking site FlightAware reported more than 3,200 canceled flights within, into, or out of the United States on Thursday morning.The situation @LGAairport right now, all flights #Cancelled or #Delayed pic.twitter.com/TQxSXRpzpB— Simon Druker (@Simon_Druker) January 4, 2018The storm shut down much of eastern Virginia, but some people were taking it in stride.Mark Schoenenberger, 45, a NASA engineer who lives in Norfolk, Virginia, put on his cross country skis so he could make a half hour trip to the bagel shop for some breakfast for his family.“It’s like ’Yay, I get to go out,” he said.The only concern he seemed to have was telecommuting while his kids were home from school. But “it’s just noise,” he said.In Norfolk, Virginia, Jonathan Rogers and his brother, Jason Mitchell, got stuck in the snow at least twice while driving home Thursday morning after working the overnight shift at a local hospital.“I was not staying,” said Rogers, 30, a floor technician. “I said the storm is not going to bother me.”The storm will then be followed by a wave of bracing cold.“We think there are going to be scattered records broken for low temperatures,” said Peterson, adding how the weather service expects 28 major cities across New England, eastern New York and the mid-Atlantic states will have record low temperatures by dawn on Sunday.

(AP Photo/Julio Cortez) HARTFORD, Conn. — A massive winter storm swept from the Carolinas to Maine on Thursday, dumping snow along the coast and bringing strong winds that will usher in possible record-breaking cold.Up to 18 inches of snow was expected in eastern New England. Blizzard warnings and states of emergency were in effect, schools and government offices closed for the day, thousands of flights were canceled and motorists were warned to be careful as conditions worsened. Shelters were open as officials worried about power outages leaving people without any heat.People who take to the roads are in for an “ugly, long commute” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.North Carolina authorities said two people died during the storm when their pickup truck ran off a snow-covered road and overturned into a creek Wednesday night in Moore County, which wasn’t expected to get any snow. The North Carolina Highway Patrol responded to 700 collisions and 300 other calls for service during the storm.In New Jersey, Orlando Igmat’s car got stuck in a snowbank along the Garden State Parkway in Tinton Falls on Thursday morning as he drove to work at Verizon.

(AP Photo/Julio Cortez) State and local officials urged residents to prepare for possible power losses and stay home so crews can clear streets and roads of what could be as much as foot or more of snow in some places. There were concerns in Boston and elsewhere that if roads aren’t properly cleared, they could freeze into cement-like icy messes by Friday, given the expected low temperatures. In other areas, plummeting temperatures already have caused water mains to burst.The storm has resulted in thousands of canceled flights at major airports such as Boston’s Logan International Airport and New York’s LaGuardia Airport and disrupted the schedules at regional airports.Amtrak planned to operate a modified schedule between New York and Boston on Thursday. Northeast Regional Service between Washington, D.C., and Newport News/Norfolk, Virginia, was canceled for Thursday.The coastal Southeast got a rare blast of snow and ice on Wednesday. Schools were shut down just months after hurricane threats. In Charleston, South Carolina, the weather service reported 5 inches of snow, enough for Chris Monoc’s sons, ages 4 and 2, to go sledding outside their home.“They probably will be teenagers the next time something like this happens, and that’s kind of sad,” Monoc said. “But we’ll enjoy it while it’s here.”Schools, businesses shut down as Atlantic Canada braces for stormAn Environment Canada meteorologist says a powerful winter storm that’s closing in on Atlantic Canada could unleash several different kinds of weather throughout the region.Ian Hubbard says New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI and parts of Newfoundland and Labrador could see heavy rain, ice, snow, blizzards, strong winds and storm surges.He says the storm should move in this morning, with the worst of the wind, rain and snow being felt later this evening.Nova Scotia could see up to 50 millimetres of rain, possibly causing localized flooding.All of New Brunswick is under a winter storm warning and the central and northern parts of the province could see roughly 40 centimetres of snow, along with wind gusts of up to 90 kilometres an hour in some areas.PEI is also expected to be hit by fierce winds and up to 25 centimetres of snow before it changes to rain in the evening. That could knock out power in many areas.School boards in Nova Scotia and on the Island cancelled classes even before the system arrived. Some businesses also closed for the day and dozens of flights at Halifax Stanfield International Airport were cancelled.center_img __Collins reported from Glastonbury, Connecticut.

Piece of Charles Josephs totem pole in Montreal returned to museum following

first_imgThe missing hand off the Residential School Totem Pole in Montreal. Photo: Robbie Purdon/APTN.Lindsay RichardsonAPTN NewsAfter a few days fraught with tension, there’s a happy ending to the mystery of a missing wooden hand stolen from a commemorative totem pole outside of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.On Wednesday, a museum spokesperson confirmed that the hand from Kwakiutl artist Charles Joseph’s “Residential School Totem Pole” was deposited on the museum doorstep overnight, along with a letter of apology.The letter reportedly states “they regret the offence caused to everyone by their thoughtless gesture, and that they were unaware of the meaning of the totem pole represents,” according to a press release obtained by APTN News.Below is an excerpt of the letter received:“Firstly, we would like to apologize to all those who were offended. At the time, we were not in a sober state of mind, and we had no idea what the totem pole was … After we realized what this stood for and represented for so many people, we immediately felt sick to our stomach …“We would like to let all know that in NO WAY, SHAPE OR FORM was this done in spite … We were simply ignorant of what it symbolized, and have decided we 100% needed to return it. … We are sorry, so sorry for any pain and anger we have caused. Love for all people.”(Residential School Totem Pole lives in front of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts downtown. Photo: Robbie Purdon/APTN)According to Director and Chief Curator Nathalie Bondil, the museum will be withdrawing their complaint based on the apology.“It is reassuring to observe the return of wisdom and clarity following an evening of inebriety,” Bondil said in a statement. “The letter of sincere apology that we received from the transient delinquents shows us that art educates and sensitizes us to all of the most important issues, notably our reconciliation with Indigenous peoples.”The totem pole has been a very public fixture outside the Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion on Sherbrooke St. for over two years.Over the weekend, the museum issued a multi-tier appeal for the hand’s return, after security camera footage revealed two hooded figures removing it before fleeing in the wee hours of Friday morning.Both the artist and owner are reportedly “very pleased with this conclusion.” The museum will be working to restore the piece to its original form.lrichardson@aptn.ca@sentimtllast_img read more

UN Economic and Social Forum ends with calls for implementation of decisions

29 July 2011The President of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) today urged the implementation of decisions made at the body’s substantive session this year, which focused on the importance of education as a catalyst for the achievement of the global goals against poverty. “We addressed issues of access to education, particularly of the girl child; the quality of education; the partnerships and financing needed; the need to ensure that education equips our youth with skills needed by our economies and the jobs markets; and we shared best practices and experiences,” said Lazarous Kapambwe, the ECOSOC President, at the end of the session in Geneva.He said the Council also underscored that the UN system should respond fast to the needs of Least Development Countries (LDCs) and countries recovering from or in conflict, as well as middle income economies.“We have agreed on the follow-up to the Fourth UN Conference on Least Developed Countries by adopting a resolution including the review of the implementation of the Istanbul Programme of Action in the 2015 annual ministerial review,” said Mr. Kapambwe.He said the Council’s humanitarian affairs segment stressed the need for strong financial partnerships and fast and response capabilities.“We took the opportunity to discuss the drought in the Horn of Africa and conflict in Somalia, as well as how we can assist in promoting dialogue on nation-building in South Sudan. On Haiti, the Council reviewed the report of its Ad Hoc Advisory Group, which includes a series of recommendations on aid effectiveness for reconstruction and long-term development,” said Mr. Kapambwe.ECOSOC also established a new UN Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management, which he said would bring together, for the first time at the global level, government experts from all Member States to compile and disseminate best practices and experiences on geospatial information, in the context of sustainable development and humanitarian assistance.“We have taken a number of decisions and resolutions at this session, as we always do and are expected to do, during ECOSOC’s substantive session. But it would be regrettable if our success is measured by the number of these decisions, or how good many of them are.“The real success of this session should be determined by the extent to which we shall implement these decisions,” said Mr. Kapambwe.Nikhil Seth, the outgoing Director of ECOSOC’s Office for Support and Coordination, said emphasis should be on monitoring the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals; improving the results of development cooperation and responding quickly to humanitarian crises.“We must avoid, as [United Kingdom’s] former prime minister Gordon Brown cautioned, a future marked by ‘broken promises, broken, dreams, broken trust’,” said Mr. Seth. read more

East Timor donors pledge aid to newly formed defence force

In closing remarks, Deputy Transitional Administrator Jean-Christian Cady said that each country present at the two-day event had indicated support for one or more of the functions in the areas of personnel support, training, logistics, and equipment and material. He also expressed satisfaction that the presence of many Asian countries among the donors had provided for a geographically balanced outcome of support.The amount of financial assistance to the Force will be determined only after the participants – representatives of Australia, Brazil, Japan, Malaysia, Mozambique, New Zealand, the Philippines, Portugal, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Thailand, the United Kingdom, and the United States — have consulted with their respective capitals. While no specific timeframe was placed on the support, it is expected to be provided until the ETDF becomes fully functional.In other news, thousands of people have so far attended Constitutional Commission hearings aimed at soliciting the views of East Timorese on what should be considered by the future Constituent Assembly when drafting a Constitution. Among the prevalent issues being discussed at the hearings are the political system, currency, and flag that East Timor should adopt; the type of punishments that should be applied to those responsible for serious crimes; the educational system; laws for foreign investors; how the revenue from the Timor Sea should be distributed; and the official language. Women’s groups have been well represented at the hearings, with many calling for Constitutional safeguards against domestic violence and for a robust family law.The Commissions will be holding public hearings in each of East Timor’s 65 sub-districts until 14 July. The Constitutional Commissioners will subsequently prepare a report from each district that will ultimately be presented by the UNTAET chief, Sergio Vieira de Mello, to a future Constituent Assembly. read more

Softball 2000 miles between starts for Shelby Hursh

Ohio State then-junior Shelby Hursh in the pitcher’s circle at the 2016 NCAA Tournament in Knoxville, Tennessee. Credit: OSU athleticsBalancing academics and athletics is a typical struggle student-athletes face, but that balancing act doesn’t usually force a player to leave her team midway through a road trip and make a 2,000-mile round-trip flight between starts. This weekend, Ohio State senior pitcher Shelby Hursh did just that.Friday night, Hursh pitched in the OSU softball team’s season-opening game against Central Michigan at the Aggie Classic in College Station, Texas. Shortly after the game, she boarded a flight back to Columbus for a graduate school interview for OSU’s Counselor Education Program. Immediately after the interview, Hursh flew back to Texas in time to pitch in Saturday night’s game against Lamar.The travel didn’t seem to affect her game at all. Hursh pitched 12 innings over the weekend and gave up just one run on four hits with 12 strikeouts on her way to three wins.To Hursh’s disappointment, however, the interview meant she would miss the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader — a game against No. 19 Texas A&M that afternoon.“Obviously, I wanted to be here with my team,” Hursh said. “But it’s a top-10 program, they only admit 12 people and they have 200 applicants. So, I really wanted to give myself a shot.”Hursh gave herself more than just a shot — she was accepted into the program. She heard the news when she broke team rules and answered her phone on the team bus as they traveled to the airport.“It was one of the professors from the program,” Hursh said. “I was instantly like, ‘Oh my gosh, if he says I don’t get in, here I am in front of the whole entire team and I’m going to have to tell them.’”Thankfully for Hursh, the call was good news and her teammates were eager to celebrate with her.“We were super excited. She got the phone call on the bus and she was still on the phone call when we were cheering,” said junior outfielder Bailee Sturgeon. “We just started screaming, and then we had to quiet down for a second so she could finish the call.”OSU coach Kelly Schoenly said she’s never had anything quite like Hursh’s wild weekend in her coaching career.“I have had players miss practices for medical school interviews and job fairs or interviews,” Schoenly said. “But I’ve never been around when someone actually left the team, missed a game and returned back the same weekend.”Sturgeon echoed that she had never experienced anything like that before, but said if anyone could handle the challenge, it was Hursh.“I think you could really throw anything at Shelby (Hursh) and she’d be able to handle it,” Sturgeon said.Hursh’s next challenge will be this weekend’s ACC/Big Ten Challenge when the Buckeyes head to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to face off against Louisville and North Carolina. This time though, she’ll get to stay with the team between games. read more

Rooppur nuke plant cost increases by Tk 75b

first_imgThe cost of Rooppur nuclear power plant has increased by Tk 75 billion, according the Annual Development Project (ADP) document for the 2017-18 fiscal year. The total cost now stands at Tk 113.929 billion.Sources of finance ministry, planning ministry, and ministry of science and technology told Prothom Alo the costs will increase even more.Initially the cost of the project was estimated at US$12650 million or Tk 110 billion, according to the general contract signed with Russia. But the government could never give a clear estimate of project costs, so doubts remained, the sources added.Project director of Rooppur nuclear power plant Shawkat Akbar had told the media the cost of the project was ‘firm and fixed’. On the other hand, finance minister Abul Mal Abdul Muhith said there are many ‘hidden costs’ in this project.The cost for work survey, land development, project design, and construction was $ 550 million in the first phase. That made the total cost $ 13.2 billion.Russia will carry 90 per cent of that cost, and Bangladesh will have to provide the rest. In addition to that, Bangladesh will also have to bear the additional costs.When asked about the accreted costs, project director Shawkat Akbar said he needs to see the ADP document to comment on that.Former chief engineer of Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission Abdul Matin told ProthomAlo “We don’t know what figure has been mentioned as estimated cost after examining financial and technical feasibility, or on what basis of estimated cost the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) has approved it. So it is not possible to say how much the cost is increased or how much it will take to finish the project.”When asked why the additional money is needed, all sources from the three ministries said it will be needed for training and construction development.This piece, originally published in Prothom Alo Bangla print edition, has been rewritten in English by Sitesh Kumar Saha.last_img read more

A federal judge in Hawaii questioned government attorneys Wednesday who urged him to narrow his order blocking President Donald Trump’s travel ban because suspending the nation’s refugee program has no effect on the state. U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson is hearing arguments on whether to extend his temporary order until Hawaii’s lawsuit works its way through the courts. Even if he does not issue a longer-lasting hold on the ban, his temporary block would stay in place until he rules otherwise.TRUMP’S REVISED TRAVEL BAN BLOCK EXTENDEDA federal judge in Hawaii disagreed with a government lawyer’s contention that the state hasn’t shown how it is harmed by a suspension in the nation’s refugee program.WHAT RUSSIA PROBE WILL FOCUS ONA Senate hearing will address how the Kremlin allegedly uses paid internet trolls to spread disinformation in the U.S. and Europe.‘BATHROOM BILL’ MAKING PROGRESS IN NORTH CAROLINALawmakers and the governor hope an end to the legislation would remove any obstacles to expanding businesses and attracting sporting events, but gay rights groups are not happy with the proposal.NTSB TO BEGIN PROBE OF TEXAS BUS-TRUCK CRASHFederal investigators will examine the scene of a head-on collision involving a small church bus and a pickup truck west of San Antonio that killed 13 senior adult church members.WHO IS PAYING A VISIT TO AN OLD FRIENDAP talks to casino billionaire Phil Ruffin, who is visiting Trump at a time when the U.S. president likely needs support after a rough couple of weeks in Washington.WHY IT HAS TAKEN SO LONG TO LIBERATE MOSULIslamic State militants are mingled among tens of thousands of civilians in the northern Iraqi city and are willing to take the population down with them, laying bare the challenge of asymmetric warfare.POST-BREXIT EUROPE SINKING IN FOR SOMEPoles, who have settled in large numbers in Britain in recent years, express confusion and apprehension as the U.K. triggers the process to leave the EU.PEDESTRIAN DEATHS CLIMBING FASTER THAN MOTORIST FATALITIESThey’ve reached nearly 6,000 deaths last year — the highest total in more than two decades, an analysis of preliminary state data finds.IN LAB SIMULATING MARS CLIMATE, A POTATO GROWSExperts believe the initial results are a promising indicator that the spuds might one day be grown in terrains as dry and salty as the Martian soil.WHERE TERPS WERE NEVER NO. 1An AP analysis of more than 1,100 polls shows Maryland, despite winning a national championship, was ranked more times than any other program without ever being No. 1.last_img read more
