MONTREAL – Air Canada is looking to cut operating costs and defend against competition from upstart low-cost competitors by adding more planes to its Rouge fleet and flying them on regional routes within Canada.Narrow-body Rouge planes that operate at lower cost could replace smaller regional aircraft operated by airline partners like Jazz on some routes.For example, one of several flights per day on a popular route could be converted to an Airbus plane, industry analysts were told Friday.Rouge aircraft are also available to compete if necessary with ultra low-cost carriers like WestJet’s new Swoop subsidiary, Flair Airlines or Canada Jetlines.“We needed to have the capability of introducing a lower-cost competitive vehicle, both on offence and on defence,” Air Canada CEO Calin Rovinescu said during a conference call about its 2017 results.The increased use of Rouge planes domestically is permitted under changes to the collective agreement with pilots negotiated last year.Several more Rouge planes are being added this summer and once all Boeing 787s are delivered next year there will be no limit on the number or type of single-aisle planes that can be flown by Rouge.Ben Smith, president of passenger airlines at Air Canada, said Rouge Airbus A320s and 321s can be converted to high density single class cabins or possibly another airplane type such as the Boeing 737 Max.Rovinescu also told analysts that a joint venture with Air China expected to be concluded in the coming months would enable it to be more aggressive in the competitive Pacific market.The joint venture would expand the relationship beyond the use of lounges and codesharing as it faces pressures on flights to China and Hong Kong.“It certainly it should certainly be an assistance to us in competing more aggressively,” Rovinescu said.Meanwhile, Air Canada announced Friday a new $250-million cost-cutting plan to be implemented by the end of 2019. That follows the completion of a $500-million plan launched in 2009 that eventually netted about $575 million in savings.The new drive to cut costs comes as the Montreal-based airline looks to maintain margins despite the expected slowing down of its capacity growth with the arrival of its final new large planes.“We showed we can take costs out in bad times but we now need to show we can continue to have that cost discipline in good times,” Rovinescu told analysts.The cost savings are expected to come from procurement, maintenance, aircraft leases, internal engineering, overhead and simplified business processes, added chief financial officer Michael Rousseau.Chris Murray of AltaCorp Capital Inc. said the new drive for efficiency is important as Air Canada’s growth slows to about seven per cent in 2018 from nearly 12 per cent in 2017, with more reductions likely in subsequent years.He expects the savings to come from “behind the scenes stuff” that won’t be felt by passengers.Air Canada capped a strong 2017 by earning adjusted net income of $61 million, or 22 cents per share for the quarter — ahead of analyst estimates of 14 cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters data.The airline’s operating revenue was $3.82 billion in the fourth quarter, up from $3.43 billion a year earlier and above the estimate of $3.75 billion.Net income was $8 million or two cents per share for the three months ended Dec. 31, which was an improvement over a 2016 fourth-quarter loss of $179 million but lower than expected.“Overall, we liked what we saw in the Q4 results,” wrote analyst Walter Spracklin of RBC Dominion Securities in a note to clients.For the full year, it earned $2.04 billion or $7.34 per share, up from $876 million or $3.10 per share in 2016. Adjusted profits also rose five cents per share to $4.11.Revenue grew 10.7 per cent to $16.2 billion as the airline carried a record 48.1 million passengers, up 7.3 per cent from the prior year.This included record revenues from cargo and Air Canada Vacations along with more than $1 billion in ancillary revenues from payments for checked baggage, seats, food and changed bookings.Strong demand and growing connecting traffic through its three hubs in Canada are expected to result in another good year in 2018, said Rovinescu, who added the performance is under appreciated by investors.Air Canada’s shares grew nearly 90 per cent last year and were up 2.3 per cent at $24.88 in midday trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter.Companies in this story: (TSX:AC, TSX:WJA)
“People who pay smugglers to risk their lives on a dangerous sea journey are throwing their money away – there is no visa awaiting them, no speedy outcome, no special treatment,” he said.“Regular transfers to Nauru and more Sri Lankans returning home is further proof that people smugglers only sell lies and make false promises about what awaits people in Australia.“This Government is determined to break the people smuggling trade and stop people getting on those dangerous boats.” People in immigration detention can request their removal from Australia at any point in time. Those who choose to depart voluntarily can be provided with individual reintegration support to assist with their sustainable return, through the International Organization for Migration.Reintegration packages are determined on a case-by-case basis depending on need and eligibility. “These individuals have chosen not to pursue asylum claims and therefore are no longer seeking to engage Australia’s protection obligations,” Mr Bowen said. “The majority of this group were in the post-13 August cohort and faced transfer to a regional processing centre in Nauru or Papua New Guinea – they have instead chosen to return home voluntarily.”Mr Bowen said two more transfers of boat arrivals to Nauru were completed this week and more would follow in the coming days and weeks. Bowen said the Sri Lankans were removed on a charter flight from Christmas Island to Colombo today that departed at 8.15am local time (11.15am AEST). The group of Sri Lankan men included two from Nauru, 20 from Christmas Island and six from mainland facilities including Villawood and Yongah Hill. The Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, Chris Bowen MP, today announced that another group of Sri Lankan men were returning home voluntarily after choosing not to pursue their asylum claims, the Australian High Commission in Colombo said.The group of 28 men consists of people who arrived both before and after new regional processing arrangements were announced on 13 August, and came out of detention facilities on Nauru, Christmas Island and the mainland.
The Secretary-General held a private meeting today in San José with President Miguel Angel Rodríguez Echevarria, according to a spokesman travelling with Mr. Annan. Foreign Minister Roberto Rojas Lopez met the Secretary-General at the airport when he arrived on Friday. During a press encounter there, the Secretary-General was asked about UN efforts in the Middle East. “We are all working very hard to try and pull the parties from the abyss,” he said. “I have also challenged the leaders to lead their people from desperation and despair.” The Secretary-General also voiced hope that recent international efforts, including those by Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah, United States Vice President Dick Cheney and US envoy Anthony Zinni, would yield results. During his visit to the University of Peace just outside San José on Saturday, University Rector Martin Lees thanked the Secretary-General for challenging the institution to revitalize itself.
by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 9, 2013 4:53 pm MDT TSX little changed, solid Alcoa earnings fail to spark mining companies TORONTO – The Toronto stock market yielded a small gain Wednesday as resource stocks largely failed to benefit from a positive earnings report and outlook from aluminum producer Alcoa Inc.The S&P/TSX composite index rose 17.43 points to 12,522.24 while the TSX Venture Exchange was up 3.74 points at 1,229.11.The Canadian dollar was off 0.1 of a cent at 101.25 cents U.S. amid data showing slightly fewer housing starts last month.Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. reported that December housing starts came in at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 197,976, down slightly from 201,376 in November but still higher than the 195,000 that economists had expected.U.S. stock markets were positive after Alcoa reported better than expected revenue and predicted a seven per cent increase in demand this year, slightly better than the six per cent increase in 2012.Alcoa is viewed as a bellwether for the overall economy since its products are used in everything from cars to aircraft to appliances. Its shares erased early gains, dipping two cents to US$9.08 in New York.The Dow Jones industrials gained 61.66 points to 13,390.51, the Nasdaq rose 14 points to 3,105.81 and the S&P 500 index added 3.87 points to 1,461.02.The TSX gold sector was down about 0.65 per cent as February bullion lost $6.70 to US$1,655.50 an ounce. Kinross Gold (TSX:K) faded 18 cents to C$9.21 and Goldcorp Inc. (TSX:G) declined 39 cents to $35.42.Gold and the companies that mine it have suffered in recent days because of uncertainty about whether the U.S. Federal Reserve might end its stimulus program of bond buying in the second half of 2013. Minutes from the Fed’s latest policy meeting showed a split over how long to continue the purchases amid concerns that they could destabilize the economy.The bond buying, known as quantitative easing, has supported bullion prices because of worries the program would drive inflation higher.“We’re much more neutral on gold today,” said Gareth Watson, vice-president, investment management and research at Richardson GMP Ltd.He noted that along with a lessening of inflation worries, the overall fear factor on markets isn’t nearly what it was during the 2008 financial crisis and last year as the eurozone debt crisis worsened.“The (Fed) minutes last week just gave people an excuse to actually execute on that trade. (When) they’re saying, look, we’re actually thinking of rolling back some of those programs sooner than you might think, then all of a sudden that was just the opportunity to step in and hit the sell button.”The metals and mining sector was down 0.4 per cent while March copper on the New York Mercantile Exchange gave up early advances to close unchanged at US$3.67 a pound. Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) gained 66 cents to C$36.86.First Quantum Minerals Ltd. (TSX:FM) sent its $5.1-billion takeover offer for Inmet Mining Corp. (TSX:IMN) directly to the copper miner’s shareholders. The company increased its offer last month to $72 per Inmet share, half in cash, half in stock.First Quantum shares dipped 95 cents to $20.59, while Inmet stock was unchanged at $72.25.HudBay Minerals Inc. (TSX:HBM) fell 50 cents to $10.90 as it said it expected to spend about $163 million this year on the Lalor mining project near Snow Lake, Man. Lalor is forecast to cost $704 million to complete. HudBay also plans to spend $901 million in 2013 on the Constancia mine in Peru. The two projects comprise the bulk of HudBay’s 2013 capital investment budget of $1.24 billion.The telecom sector was also a weight on the TSX with BCE Inc. (TSX:BCE) down 48 cents to US$42.10.The energy component was slightly higher while oil shed early gains after the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported a 1.3-million-barrel climb in crude supplies for last week, short of the the 1.5-million-barrel gain that economists expected. But gasoline inventories jumped 7.4 million barrels, much higher than the 2.6 million that had been forecast.February crude drifted five cents lower to US$93.10 a barrel. Pacific Rubiales Energy (TSX:PRE) ran ahead $1.16 to C$23.15 while Husky Energy (TSX:HSE) advanced 20 cents to $29.90.Industrials led TSX advancers, up per cent with Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP) ahead 98 cents to $108.35 while Bombardier Inc. (TSX:BBD.B) climbed four cents to $3.90.In Canadian earnings news, shares of Shaw Communications Inc. (TSX:SJR.B) improved by 17 cents to $22.71 as the company increased its dividend as it reported better than expected quarterly results. Shaw earned $235 million or 50 cents per share while revenue came in at $1.32 billion.Traders also took in some major corporate dealmaking.Progress Energy awarded a $5-billion contract to TransCanada Corp. (TSX:TRP) that will see the pipeline company design, build, own and operate the proposed Prince Rupert Gas Transmission project. The pipeline will carry gas from northeastern British Columbia to a proposed export facility near Prince Rupert.Progress, recently acquired by Malaysia’s state-owned energy company, plans to export liquefied natural gas from the port to markets in energy-hungry Asian markets. TransCanada shares climbed $1.14 to $48.39.Elsewhere on the corporate front, investors rallied behind Boeing as the company said it has “extreme confidence” in its 787 Dreamliner even as federal investigators try to determine the cause of a fire that has prompted new worries about the plane.The fire happened Monday in one of the plane’s lithium ion batteries. Boeing shares gained 3.55 per cent to US$76.76, after dropping 4.6 per cent the two previous days.

Pourquoi ne savons-nous pas dessiner les dinosaures?Des scientifiques de la Cornell University se sont interrogés sur la façon dont nous représentons les dinosaures, et en particulier les tyrannosaures. Selon eux, nos dessins sont erronés et montrent toujours les tyrannosaures tels que nous pensions qu’ils étaient dans les années 1900. Savez-vous dessiner un tyrannosaure ? Une longue queue, des petites pattes, une tête imposante… jusque là tout est correct mais ensuite ? Quelle posture allez-vous donner à votre dinosaure ? Tout sauf la bonne, si l’on en croit des chercheurs américains de la Cornell University. En effet, d’après ces scientifiques, bien que les connaissances aient considérablement évolué quant à l’anatomie des Tyrannosaurus rex, nous continuons à représenter ces créatures comme nous pensions qu’elles étaient dans les années 1900. Et ce quel que soit notre âge : ainsi, même les enfants d’aujourd’hui ne sauraient pas correctement représenter un T.rex. Mais alors qu’il y a t-il de si faux dans notre représentation ? Comme le soulignent les scientifiques, le tyrannosaure était un redoutable prédateur, agile, dynamique avec un corps “à l’horizontale”. Autrement dit, il était plutôt penché vers l’avant avec une queue massive qui fouettait l’air. Or, nos dessins montrent un dinosaure tout en hauteur (un peu comme un kangourou), alourdi par une queue qui traine par terre et des pattes relativement imposantes qui ne paraissent pas vraiment agiles. Des représentations erronées plutôt tenaces Face à une telle différence, l’équipe de la Cornell University a tenté de trouver des réponses expliquant pourquoi notre connaissance restait “bornée” à cette image. Selon l’étude à paraitre dans la revue Journal of Geoscience Education, c’est principalement la ténacité des mauvaises représentations venant de sources non scientifiques qui est à blâmer. Qu’il s’agisse de dessins animés pour enfants ou de forme de nuggets de poulet, nous sommes exposés à de nombreuses représentations erronées qui sont aujourd’hui quasiment impossibles à vaincre. Or, ce phénomène combiné à la fascination que le monde porte aux dinosaures, aurait conduit à ce que les chercheurs appellent “l’inertie culturelle” dans laquelle la science se maintient dans l’esprit de la population sous une forme démodée, et ce quelle que soit les avancées qui peuvent être réalisées. En 2006, le professeur Robert Ross qui enseigne l’histoire de la Vie à l’Ithaca College s’était déjà intéressé à cet absence de réalisme dans les représentations de tyrannosaure.Avec Warren Allmon, professeur de paléontologie, il avait ainsi mené une étude sur des centaines d’écoliers et collégiens et trouvé que 63% des premiers, et 72% des seconds dessinaient le T.rex la queue au sol. Pour quantifier les observations, ils sont allés encore plus loin et ont mesuré l’angle qui séparait l’échine du dinosaure dessiné et l’horizontale. Ils ont alors constaté que la plupart des étudiants dessinaient l’animal avec un angle de 50 à 60°, soit plus de 5° de trop comparé à la posture correcte. Reste que cette tendance demeure “étrange” aux yeux des scientifiques qui soulignent que beaucoup sont nés bien après que l’anatomie et la posture du dinosaure soient entièrement revues.”Jurassic Park”, des tyrannosaures fidèlement représentésÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Certains font pourtant des efforts : c’est le cas des réalisateurs de “Jurassic Park”. Lorsqu’ils ont conçu le film (qui fêtera cette année ses 20 ans), ils voulaient absolument que les dinosaures soient représentés le plus fidèlement possible. C’est donc bien un tyrannosaure dynamique à l’allure horizontale qui poursuit les héros. Malheureusement, du dinosaure de Toy Story aux jouets en forme de tyrannosaure, on ne peut pas en dire autant de tout. A décharge, on peut tout de même reconnaitre que la posture “moderne” du dinosaure est un peu plus compliqué à représenter que l’ancienne. Mais “nos conclusions suggèrent que les étudiants sont peut-être imprégnés de cette image depuis leurs plus jeunes années. Et même après avoir vu Jurassic Park, ça ne change pas”, a indiqué Robert Ross cité dans un communiqué sur le site de l’université.Pour Allmon, ceci montre bien que les personnes ne sont pas des “pages blanches” et que les éducateurs comme les professeurs doivent prendre en compte que les écoliers et les étudiants emmènent avec eux, même inconsciemment des préconceptions qui ne sont pas toujours justes.

Manchester United will challenge Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plans to use the match to learn more about his players.Reds Devils will be clashing with third-placed Spurs in the Premier League at Wembley Stadium in today and United coach adds that his team are capable of beating anyone.“Of course it will be tough but, then again, we can make it tough for them,” said Ole, when speaking to MUTV during their warm-weather training camp in Dubai this week.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“They [Spurs] have got strengths and weaknesses, as have we, so it’s one of those games that we’ll need, and the cup game against Arsenal, before we go into the Champions League against PSG because that’s the ultimate test.”So, for me, the Spurs game isn’t the be all and end all. Of course it’s important, but it’s preparation for the rest of the season and the way going forward. We’ve won five games and you learn so much by winning but, when you get these tougher games, then you learn more about the personalities and how they deal with these situations.“
Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) plans to eliminate about 900 civilian and contractor positions, or 5.5 percent of its existing civilian workforce, over the next two years, according to Army data released to the Tacoma News Tribune.The news comes on the heels of the Army’s announcement in July about its plans to shrink its active-duty end strength from 490,000 to 450,000 soldiers by the end of fiscal 2018. Officials at the time said the restructuring would be accompanied by civilian cutbacks, but as recently as last November the Army said it had not yet determined how many civilian employees would be affected.The Army’s latest restructuring is slated to eliminate 1,251 soldiers at the installation in the South Sound region of Washington state.Leaders at JBLM have been meeting to figure out how they’ll cope with hundreds fewer workers to support the installation’s day-to-day operations. Those reductions, along with additional staffing cuts expected through 2022, “will fundamentally change how we operate on base,” said Greta Powell, chief of the base’s resource management office.“It’s bleak,” Powell said.The Army plans to achieve the cutbacks primarily through attrition and retirements, said Army spokesman Lt. Col. Joe Buccino.As the Army draws down from two wars, it will need fewer civilians to run its installations, according to the story. One reason is that some functions filled by civilians now can be handled by soldiers, such as gate security. In other cases, the shrinking number of military personnel will require a smaller installation support staff.“This isn’t a crisis or a catastrophe,” said Tom Knight, the base’s chief of staff. “This is an opportunity to reassess ourselves to change the way we’re doing business here for a lot of the right reasons. We have much more of a home-station military right now,” Knight said.In advance of the cuts, Gov. Jay Inslee (D) in July directed state agencies to develop a plan for helping service members and civilian workers find new careers. Dan Cohen AUTHOR

Manjinder Singh SirsaIANSDisgusted that his state Punjab was derided by Bollywood as a drugs haven in the film “Udta Punjab”, Akali Dal MLA Manjinder S. Sirsa on Wednesday refused to backtrack from his diatribe against B-town actors, including Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor, for flaunting their “drugged state” at a party.Filmmaker Karan Johar recently shared a video of the party that was attended by top stars including Deepika, Ranbir Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Arjun Kapoor and Shahid, captioning it “Saturday Night Vibes”.Sharing the video with a reference to the Shahid-starrer “Udta Punjab”, which dealt with drug abuse, Sirsa tweeted: “#UDTABollywood – Fiction Vs Reality. Watch how the high and mighty of Bollywood proudly flaunt their drugged state. I raise my voice against #DrugAbuse by these stars. RT if you too feel disgusted @shahidkapoor @deepikapadukone @arjunk2@Varun_dvn @karanjohar @vickykaushal09.”#UDTABollywood – Fiction Vs RealityWatch how the high and mighty of Bollywood proudly flaunt their drugged state!!

I will stand by what I said. These people were doing drugs, they are drug addicts. They are ruining the society and jail is the right place for them, not society. Those who are asking me to apologise need to go and see who all are indulging in drugs,” Sirsa said.The actors were yet to comment on the issue but politician Milind Deora refuted Sirsa’s claims.”My wife was also present that evening (and is in the video). Nobody was in a ‘drugged state’, so stop spreading lies and defaming people you don’t know! I hope you will show the courage to tender an unconditional apology,” he tweeted.Neither I know @milinddeora; nor his family. I didn’t share this video to harass anyone but to expose Bollywood stars who are themselves into drugs yet defamed our youth calling them drug addict!! I would never apologise to these drug addicts.@ANI @TimesNow @ZeeNews https://t.co/GRB4x5OICC pic.twitter.com/MIn0iPh2x0— Manjinder S Sirsa (@mssirsa) July 31, 2019Sirsa also said that he didn’t know that Deora’s wife was in the video.”But I want to say this with conviction that Bollywood stars are indulging in drugs in the video,” Sirsa responded.The Twitterati too criticised Sirsa for his reaction. “Let them be stoned or drunk. Why does it bother you?” tweeted Ishita Yadav, who is Parliamentary Secretary to Pilibhit MP Varun Gandhi.Sirsa replied: “They are public figures!! They are called ‘stars’ & they enjoy many privileges. Don’t they lecture us on every issue from their verified Twitter handles? So today they are answerable to every Indian for their drug-effected stoned look as visible in this video.”Yadav hit back: “Were you there? Was someone you know there? You can’t go around attacking people based on conjecture.”However, Sirsa refused to pause: “Since @IshitaYadav is so furiously defending the celebs & advocating their innocence in drugs… Let us all request @karanjohar @shahidkapoor @Varun_dvn @arjunk26 @deepikapadukone to get DOPE TEST done & share reports on Twitter. Pls prove me wrong by dope test report Ishita Ji.”

(AP Photo/Mike Catalini)An all-night arts and music festival turned deadly Sunday morning when gunfire erupted in a crowd, sending people stampeding and leaving one suspect dead and 22 people injured, authorities said.Sixteen people were treated for gunshot wounds, said Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri on Sunday morning. Four of those, including a 13-year-old boy, were in critical condition.Two suspects opened fire around 2:45 a.m. during the Art All Night Trenton festival that showcases local art, music, food and films. One of the suspects, a 33-year-old man, was killed, authorities said. Another suspect is in custody.On Sunday, there was crime scene tape surrounding the site of the old warehouse building that now shares a parking lot with a supermarket, bank and laundry facility.Ernie Rivas has owned a shop near the site of the shooting for 17 years and said he came back from the beach Sunday morning when he heard what happened.“I’ve never seen this happen. It’s bad, I feel bad, especially on Father’s Day,” Rivas said.Theresa Brown said she’s been volunteering at Art All Night for 12 years and has never seen or heard of violence like this. She said she was leaving her volunteer shift around 2 a.m. and heard “pop, pop, pop.”“I thought it was a car backfiring,” she said.She returned to the scene around 7 a.m. and saw the police.Art All Night Trenton began Saturday afternoon and was scheduled to conclude Sunday afternoon. The remainder of the festival has been cancelled.“We’re very shocked. We’re deeply saddened. Our hearts ache and our eyes are blurry but our dedication and resolve to building a better Trenton through community, creativity and inspiration will never fade. Not tonight. Not ever,” festival organizers posted on social media Sunday.A spokeswoman for St. Francis Medical Center in Trenton said 10 victims were being treated there for minor injuries. She said they were both men and women, ranging in age from 17 to 48. They were in various stages of being released, she said.One man with a gunshot wound was transferred to Cooper University Hospital in Camden.Capital Health Systems spokeswoman Kate Stier said they have “at least 16” patients there, including the 13-year-old boy in critical condition. That total may not include people treated and released.
Adguard website: Download Windows and Office ISO images by Martin Brinkmann on March 13, 2017 in Windows – Last Update: June 19, 2017 – 24 commentsAdguard is a third-party web service that allows you to download Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office ISO images from Microsoft services directly.Microsoft makes it quite difficult for the average user to download ISO images of Windows or Office.While you can grab some ISOs from Microsoft directly, it gets quite complicated if you need ISO images of older Microsoft products.One of the better options to get those is provided by the Windows ISO Downloader program for Windows. You may use the program to grab ISO images of Windows or Office versions or editions straight from Microsoft servers.The program is available for Windows only however, so that you cannot really use it if you happen to use a different operating system.Note: Microsoft moves, adds and removes downloads regularly. It can happen that some of the downloads mentioned below are not available anymore when you access the service. Please let us know if that is the case so that we can update the guide.Adguard: Download Windows and Office ISO imagesThe Adguard website offers an alternative. If’s biggest advantage over Windows ISO Downloader is that it is a web service. You need a modern web browser to access it, but don’t need to install programs or plugins to make use of it.All you have to do is pick an interface language at the top, and select the product that you want to download using the menus provided.The following five menus determine the product:Type: Windows Final, Microsoft Office, TechNet Evaluation Center, ESD Electronic Software Download, Language Pack for production Microsoft, Virtual Machines (by Microsoft) .Version: depends on selectionIncludes Windows 8.1 and 10Office 2013, 2016, 2016 for Mac,Evaluation software (Windows, Windows Server, Office Servers, System Center, SQL Server, Advanced Threat Analytics, Identity and Access Management, Microsoft Integration Services, Web Lab KitElectronic Software Downloads: Windows 10, Windows 8.1Language Packs for Windows and Windows Insider Builds.Virtual Machines from Windows XP to Windows 10 (including Insider Builds)Edition: depends on type and version. Windows editions include Home, Pro, Enterprise, Office include Home,Personal, Professional, and more.Language: lists all supported languages based on the type, version and edition.File: usually 32-bit or 64-bit, if provided.Once you have made the last selection, the file download link is provided right away. The listing includes the file size of the download, and the SHA1 hash.Downloads, at least those that I have tested, originate from Microsoft servers. It is recommended that you check the download link before you start it. The Adguard site seems to be powered by Microsoft TechBench, the same source that the Windows ISO Downloader is also getting its files from.Closing WordsAguard offers another method of downloading Windows and Office ISO images to the local system. Since it relies on TechBench, it is equally dependent on Microsoft not shutting down access to older ISO images.The service works well right now, and downloads are quite fast considering that they are served directly from Microsoft servers and not third-party servers.

Brisbane has its sights set on becoming the “New World City” with a new plan to help drive the Australian city’s economic growth over the next seven years.More than 100 recommendations have been made in the recently released Brisbane 2022 New World City Action Plan, including a shift in the city’s approach to economic development.The economic plan, prepared by the Lord Mayor’s Economic Development Steering Committee (LMEDSC), was compiled through consultations with over 1000 representatives of local, national and international organisations.Lord Mayor of Brisbane, Graham Quirk, supports the New World City model and said this is an exciting opportunity for the city.“This report is about positioning ourselves to drive job creation relevant to a globalising economy which benefits our whole community,” Cr Quirk said. “Four years ago we delivered the Window of Opportunity plan that underpinned the city’s growth strategy beyond the resources boom. “And again, we must continue to keep pace with change, tackle emerging challenges and take advantage of every opportunity.“My aim is to ensure Brisbane’s influence as a serious player in the Asia Pacific region continues to grow and we are recognised globally as a new world city full of opportunity that attracts and retains talent.”The report highlights seven economic priorities, eight specific industry growth sectors and ten competitive platforms to form the groundwork of a New World City economy.Brisbane Marketing board chairman Ian Klug said these components have a clear impact on how the city plans its growth and maintains an “enviable lifestyle for residents and visitors”.“We hand this report to the Lord Mayor confident that we have an extraordinary opportunity to deliver a bold step change that will bring with it a new kind of economic prosperity, one which has its focus firmly on the global economy,” Mr Klug said.Mr Quirk is yet to announce which recommendations will be adopted and said he will firstly consider the full implications of the report.“This report sets the scene for economic prosperity but this is a whole of city project and I want to invoke the spirit of ‘Team Brisbane’ to collaboratively deliver initiatives that will ensure we achieve our goal of doubling the economy by 2035,” he said.Source = ETB Travel News: Brittney Levinson
For seven years running, on the last Saturday of March, millions of people around the world have switched off their lights for Earth Hour as a symbolic gesture to show their commitment to taking positive action for our planet. Beyond the symbolic 60 minutes of darkness, Earth Hour has grown into a powerful, global, citizen-driven movement of progressive change for the environment. Recent examples of bold innovation and collective action have demonstrated the power of Earth Hour to effect lasting and tangible change across the globe.Earth Hour is an inspired opportunity to engage our hearts and minds, and to reflect on (and renew) our commitments to making the planet a place where we and future generations may prosper. Although we are not always aware of it, our individual actions can (and do) have a great impact on our natural world. It is also a good idea to do something else that will help our planet. Clean the litter off your street, plant a tree or donate money to a local charity. This year, join the movement that will transform our planet! WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite Earth Hour 2014 is scheduled for Saturday, March 29, from 8.30pm to 9.30pm.Earth Hour engages a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues. It was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia, in 2007. Since then, it has grown to engage more than 7000 cities and towns worldwide, and the one-hour event continues to remain the key driver of the now larger movement. The worldwide event is held towards the end of March annually, encouraging individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour as a symbol of their commitment to the planet.

Franklin) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “They were loyalist fans to drive three hours up and watch a practice. It takes a little more commitment than just driving 30 minutes to get to Glendale,” he said. “We have more fans here consistently because it’s closer, which is nice and gives fans an opportunity to see us, but that weather in Flagstaff was amazing and looking at that mountain every day on the practice field …”Berry said there was a more esoteric feel to camp that was lost when the Cardinals left Flagstaff.“On some level, with padded camp in the dome, I think the players miss out on an element of what training camp was meant to be and this is a sign of the times,” he said. “A lot of teams are moving indoors and with so many domed stadiums, if you have a home domed stadium, you could play anywhere from 10 to 12 indoor games so there really isn’t that need to practice outside when most of the games are inside, but when you talk about building a team and going through adverse situations and bonding together, I think they miss out on a little bit of that.”Despite all those fond memories, there were plenty of drawbacks to camp life in Flagstaff.“I didn’t like dorm life, especially my first year with [former coach] Denny [Green],” Berry said. “He made it as tough as he possibly could; 2004 was one of the worst camps of my life. We had what looked like a double room and four guys shared it. I know Dennis was trying to prove a point and we were a close-knit group but I enjoyed those last two years much more when we moved into those new apartments.” Like Peterson, Berry said he’d choose Glendale over Flagstaff for training because the proximity makes more sense for the fans and the players. He also said the nearby accommodations at the Renaissance Hotel in Glendale provide better service and better bedding – not that that was ever a problem for Fitzgerald and Peterson.While many players slept on NAU’s awful, thin, dorm mattresses, Peterson said he got a pro tip right when he arrived for his rookie camp in 2011.“I was a rookie and a second-year player bringing my own bed and refrigerator and all that stuff,” he said, laughing. “I was in the room with William Gay, Adrian [Wilson] — I was in the room with a lot of older guys so they kind of put me up on game very early.”Fitzgerald and Peterson have the same corporate connection when it comes to comfort.“I always get a bed [brought in], even at the hotel,” Fitzgerald said. “My buddy, [CEO] John Merwin, over at Brooklyn Bedding, he makes the best mattresses and he takes care of me and Patrick. I have his mattresses in my home. I have his mattress in the hotel. Wherever I go, I always sleep good. Make sure you put that in the story.” “Everything has its pros and cons, but Flagstaff was great. Whiz [former coach Ken Whisenhunt] was the best in terms of the schedule. We worked hard but he allowed you to get off your feet and rest so that schedule was lovely.”Former Cardinal Bertrand Berry (2004-2009), who still does broadcast work for the team, said the interaction with the fans was more intimate in Flagstaff than it is at University of Phoenix Stadium.“The thing about Flagstaff is the fans got to be right there,” he said. “They had the stands where you could literally reach out and touch your favorite players and you can’t do that at University of Phoenix Stadium because they’re away from the field.“As you walked up the hill to go up to that first practice field at NAU, fans could take pictures of players, hug them, have a conversation, whatever you wanted. Once you got to the upper level, it was the same thing where the fans were so much closer to the action.”Aside from the fan interaction, both Fitzgerald and Berry said there was a feel to camp in Flagstaff that can’t be replicated in Glendale. Fitzgerald acknowledged that Glendale makes camp accessible to more fans, but he appreciated those that made the trek up north. Top Stories Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and cornerback Patrick Peterson are the only two remaining players who trained in Flagstaff. Both have fond memories of their time in the Ponderosa Pines.“I do remember Flagstaff – a lot — because I’m a member at Pine Canyon [Golf Club in Flagstaff],” Peterson said, laughing. “I was actually just there the day before camp. I miss it up there. I train up there still because I think the altitude up there is really, really good for athletes so we when we come back down here, running in this heat, running in this lower altitude, it’s almost like a piece of cake. “My first two seasons here, we always started faster than everybody because we had that illegal blood doping (the thinner air) up there in Flagstaff. That’s probably the only thing I miss about it.”Related LinksOC Mike McCoy says Cardinals are still finding offensive identityCardinals notebook: Outdoor practice and Chandler Jones’ sled destructionCardinals’ ‘Red & White Practice’ to raise funds for fallen DPS trooperHumphries’ hot takes: Going 1-on-1 vs. Jones, rookies know their snacksFitzgerald agreed that the altitude training gave him an edge for the season but he misses more than the preparation.“You’re so close to each other, you’re sharing rooms, there’s so much more bonding, staying up until 11 or 12 o’clock, talking about family and playing chess and just getting to know your teammates,” he said. “Here in the hotel, we’ve got plush room service. GLENDALE, Ariz. – When the Cardinals opened training camp at University of Phoenix Stadium on Friday, it marked the sixth season since team president Michael Bidwill decided to move camp from Flagstaff to Glendale. In that time, the coaching staff and nearly the entire roster has turned over, leaving few people in the organization with memories of the team’s traditional training ground at Northern Arizona University.
