Indonesia owns majority control over Freeports mine

first_imgJAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia has finalized transfer of majority control over giant gold and copper mine from Freeport-McMoRan.President Joko Widodo on Friday announced the landmark deal worth $3.85 billion to take over a 51.2 per cent stake in PT Freeport Indonesia from the U.S. company has been completed by PT Inalum, a state-owned mining company.The two sides have been on a collision course since a presidential regulation in 2012 imposed a limit of 49 per cent on foreign ownership of companies issued new mining licenses. Foreign investors with ownership greater than 49 per cent were required to sell shares to state-owned enterprises or privately owned Indonesian companies.Freeport-McMoRan initially owns 90 per cent of the Grasberg mine since it began operating in Indonesia’s easternmost Papua in 1973. The rest is owned by the Indonesian government.The Associated Presslast_img

Googles drone delivery business gets FAA goahead

An offshoot of Alphabet Inc.’s Google has become the first drone operator to receive government approval as an airline, an important step that gives it the legal authority to begin dropping products to actual customers.The subsidiary, Wing Aviation LLC, now has the same certifications that smaller airlines receive from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and the Department of Transportation. It plans to begin routine deliveries of small consumer items in two rural communities in Virginia within months, the company said.“It’s an exciting moment for us to have earned the FAA’s approval to actually run a business with our technology,” Wing Chief Executive Officer James Ryan Burgess said in an interview. He called it “pivotal” both for his company and the drone industry in general. Startups think small to find a niche in the shadow of tech giants Frankfurt airport working on flying taxis Looking to the sky: B.C. company says it is sucking carbon from air, making fuel Drone regulations still don’t permit most flights over crowds and urban areas, limiting where Wing can operate. But the approvals signed by the FAA on Friday and Monday give the company the ability to charge for deliveries of clients’ goods in Virginia and apply for permission to expand to other regions.While scores of companies working in test programs have gotten FAA waivers to perform demonstration flights or to make deliveries over short distances, there has never been a drone company approved under the regulations designed to ensure safety at traditional charter airlines or smaller air-cargo haulers.It required Wing to create extensive manuals, training routines and a safety hierarchy — just as any air carrier must do.Companies receiving permission must also be majority owned by U.S. citizens under long-standing restrictions imposed by the Department of Transportation.Because the idea of drones flying over people’s homes is so new, the company plans to conduct extensive outreach to local government leaders and the public, Burgess added. Actual deliveries are expected to start within several months.Mark Blanks, director of the Virginia Tech Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership, which has been working with Wing on tests of the deliveries, said “we’ll be working with the community a lot more as we prepare to roll this out.”The people living in the neighbourhoods where tests were conducted ranged from academics at the university to farm hands, Blanks said. Wing and university representatives have contacted many of them to ensure they were comfortable.“Across the board everybody we’ve spoken to has been pretty excited,” he said.Wing provided extensive documentation to support its application, including records of thousands of safe flights conducted in Australia in recent years, according to the FAA.“This is an important step forward for the safe testing and integration of drones into our economy,” Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said in the release.Some drone companies have complained that the process of obtaining air-carrier certification was too onerous. Many of the requirements that made sense for a charter airline — like flight attendants and seat belts for the crew — didn’t apply to them.Burgess said that the process of applying to the FAA took months and was “very rigorous and very thorough.”Other drone companies applying for FAA approvals should be able to move more quickly now that the agency and Wing have worked through the issues of what rules should apply to drone operators and which ones should not, Burgess said.The FAA’s air-carrier certification was needed because existing rules created strictly for drones don’t allow the kind of flights Wing envisioned, he said.According to regulations issued in 2016, for example, drone operators are allowed to fly for hire, but have to do so within strict rules prohibiting flights outside of a ground operator’s eyesight. Similarly, the FAA has allowed automated flights over longer distances, but they are only demonstrations and companies can’t accept payment.In order for Wing to operate over longer ranges and actually charge for the service, it needed to become a full-fledged air carrier. The FAA confirmed the air-carrier certification was signed, but didn’t offer additional comment.Wing plans to begin deliveries in the Blacksburg and Christiansburg areas of Virginia. The company has been conducting research at nearby Virginia Tech.Unlike Amazon.com Inc.’s Prime Air, another would-be drone delivery company, Wing will sell items from local merchants. Now that it has gotten FAA approvals, it will begin finding business partners in the two towns, Burgess said.Wing’s drone, a hybrid between a helicopter and plane, is able to lift off vertically and fly horizontally at high speeds. It carries packages in its belly, lowering them to people’s yards with a tether while it hovers a safe distance overhead.The company read more

New oil operations in Barents Sea could compound pollution problems UN warns

A UNEP report released in Stavanger, Norway, notes the absence of long-term planning to tackle the over-fishing of cod and haddock, as well as the problems arising from the intentional introduction of the Red King Crab, which may lead to a reduction of non-commercial species.Other threats to the unique Barents Sea Arctic ecosystem include a projected six-fold increase in oil and gas transportation, possibly raising oil transport from the Arctic Shelf to 40 million tons a year. “The increased exploration activities for petroleum resources in the Barents Sea, the offshore developments and the shipping of oil and gas along the coasts represent significant potential threats to this vulnerable Arctic ecosystem,” UNEP chief Klaus Toepfer said.Further compounding these problems are the presence of the world’s largest radioactive waste storage system in the Murmansk region, and the unintentional introduction of alien biological species by oil tankers.The report recommends that new regulations for different sectors should be devised, adopted and enforced and that the affected countries should adhere rigorously to international environmental agreements.The expert team producing the report was established by UNEP’s Global International Waters Assessment (GIWA) and chaired by the Russian Academy of Science and the Murmansk Marine Biological Institute.It was supported by Akvaplan-Niva environmental and aquaculture consultants and the Norwegian College of Fisheries Science in Tromsø and was funded by the Global Environment Facility and the Norwegian Government.

Pharmacist who killed his wife to be with his lover trapped by

It also showed that after he returned from a trip out to buy food that night, he had gone upstairs after he pretended to find his wife’s stricken body, dashing into a bedroom to hide the house’s CCTV hard-drive.Research of Jessica Patel’s health app showed her handset moved 14 steps at 7.44pm – the exact time Patel left her lifeless body and fled the house to create an alibi.He claimed his wife was still alive when he ventured out, but his story crumbled when the app showed her phone remained motionless outside the couple’s Middlesbrough home until 8.40pm that night. That was when a police officer picked it up near their front door, where it had been left by Patel to make it look like it had been dumped by an intruder.The jury unanimously found Patel guilty. The judge told him: “You have been convicted by the jury and you will be sentenced to life imprisonment and that will happen tomorrow morning.”  Mitesh Patel ransacked the home to make it look like an intruder had been in the house Mitesh Patel ransacked the home to make it look like an intruder had been in the house A pharmacist was found guilty of murdering his wife after an iPhone app allowed the police to track his movements while she lay motionless in their home. Mitesh Patel, 37, injected his wife Jessica with insulin and strangled her with a Tesco bag at their Middlesbrough home, then staged a break-in to make it look like an intruder had attacked her and bound her with tape.The couple ran a successful pharmacy together but their marriage was unhappy, with the husband repeatedly seeking sex with men he met on the Grindr dating app.And he was secretly in a relationship with Dr Amit Patel, his “soulmate”, who had emigrated to Sydney and with whom he hoped to bring up his and Jessica’s IVF baby after her death.The court heard Patel stood to profit from his wife’s death to the tune of £2 million from insurance policies.The husband was convicted of her murder at Teesside Crown Court after the jury heard that Patel had made internet searches dating back years, including “I need to kill my wife”, “insulin overdose”, “hiring hitman UK” and “how much methadone will kill you?” The court heard that a health app helped convict him in what was thought to be a legal first in the UK. After his arrest, police seized Patel’s handset and downloaded critical information. The health app uses motion processors in the phone to monitor a user’s steps and when the handset is taken up a flight of stairs, and that evidence was used in court to show the killer’s movements around his home, going upstairs to ransack rooms to stage a break-in after he had strangled his wife, 34, in the living room.

House Democrats have plan to reopen government

first_imgWASHINGTON — House Democrats are introducing a package of bills Monday that would re-open the federal government without approving funding for President Donald Trump’s border wall with Mexico, establishing an early confrontation that will test the new power dynamic in Washington.The House is preparing to vote as soon as the new Congress convenes Thursday, as one of the first acts after Democrats take control, according to an aide who was not authorized to discuss the plan and spoke on condition of anonymity.Democrats under Nancy Pelosi are all but certain to swiftly approve the two bills, making good on their pledge to try to quickly resolve the partial government shutdown that’s now in its second week. What’s unclear is whether the Republican-led Senate, under Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., will consider either measure — or if Trump would sign them into law.The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The package does not include the $5 billion Trump wants for the wall on the southern border. The president insisted in a series of tweets Monday he still wants to build the wall, a signature campaign promise.McConnell spokesman Donald Stewart made it clear Senate Republicans will not take action without Trump’s backing. “It’s simple: The Senate is not going to send something to the president that he won’t sign,” he said.last_img

San Diego Zoo Safari Park artificially inseminates rhino in attempt to save

first_img July 25, 2017 KUSI Newsroom KUSI Newsroom, Posted: July 25, 2017 San Diego Zoo Safari Park artificially inseminates rhino in attempt to save species Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Researchers at the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research announced Monday that they’ve made their first attempt to artificially inseminate a southern white rhinoceros, in an attempt to save the critically endangered northern white rhino. Only three northern white rhinos currently remain in the world.    Barbara Durrant, director of reproductive sciences at the institute, called it a historic procedure. It could be several weeks before it’s known whether the July 6 procedure on 9-year-old Amani at the zoo’s Safari Park was successful. “The sperm had excellent motility, the procedure went very well, the rhinos involved are doing great and now we wait and hope for a pregnancy,” Durrant said. If artificial insemination proves successful and a calf is born, zoo officials hope to use the process to have a female southern white rhino carry a northern white rhino to term. The goal is to produce a new member of the northern species in 10-15 years. First, scientists need to sequence the genome of the northern white rhino to clarify the extent of genetic divergence from its southern relative. Another step requires conversion of cells preserved from a dozen individual northern white rhinos in the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation research’s Frozen Zoo to stem cells that could develop into sperm and eggs — a process successfully begun in the laboratory of Jeanne Loring of The Scripps Research Institute. Amani is one of six female southern white rhinos that were relocated to the Safari Park from private reserves in South Africa in November 2015, to serve as potential surrogates for a northern white rhino embryo in the future. The procedure provided an opportunity for researchers to learn more about the intricacies of rhino reproduction, and to learn whether Amani is able to conceive and carry a calf to term. “It is very important for Amani and the other five rhinos to get pregnant when they’re young,” Durrant said. “Just like human females and other mammals, the older they are, the more difficult it can be to conceive,” she said. “Pregnancy is not only important for the individual rhino’s reproductive health, but also when we make northern white rhino embryos, we would never risk putting a precious northern white rhino embryo into the uterus of a female who was not proven to be reproductively fit.” Zoo officials said they will begin doing ultrasound scans on the rhino in the next two weeks, examining both uterine horns for evidence of a fetus, which may not be visible until it is several weeks old. The rhino’s ovaries will also be examined by ultrasound, and her hormone levels will be monitored for indicators of pregnancy. A rhino’s gestation period is 16 months.  If successful, the procedure could also be used in the future on critically endangered Sumatran and Javan rhinos. Even if the procedure doesn’t work, the data collected leading up to this attempt will be valuable for future work, according to zoo officials.last_img

CRC Oregon wants toll paid one way or another

first_imgWith time running short for the Columbia River Crossing, Oregon is working on a tolling plan that would allow the state to suspend the driver’s licenses of out-of-state toll scofflaws.Proponents of the $2.8 billion I-5 bridge and freeway expansion will need a big boost from the Oregon Legislature and the Washington Department of Licensing for that to happen.According to a just-issued opinion from the Oregon Department of Justice, the CRC proponents need the Oregon Legislature to pass a new law and Washington to change an administrative rule for the plan to work.“Implementation of such an agreement requires new Oregon legislation designating toll violations as traffic violations subject to citation,” said DOJ attorney Steven Wolf in a letter dated Feb. 5.The Washington State Attorney General recently opined that the current plan would require the Washington Department of Licensing to change its own rules.Oregon was forced to dive into the fine points of toll collection and enforcement after Washington dropped out as an equal partner in the $3.6 billion CRC last summer. Until then, the plan had been for Washington, which already collects tolls on two of its major bridges, to handle it. A downsized $2.8 billion project, with Oregon going in alone, was subsequently floated.last_img

Russian roulette

first_img Constance Hsu appointed Group COO of Sihanoukville’s Jin Bei Group More tantalising snippets have reached IAG re: the fallout from the great Phnom Penh slot club market implosionIt seems a couple of Russian entrepreneurs were left mightily disappointed after the Cambodian capital’s slot clubs were placed under lock and key by the government in a crack down on gambling by locals. Load More RelatedPosts Cambodia deports 150 Chinese nationals for gambling-related crimes in Sihanoukville, Bavet Cambodia to stop issuing online gaming licenses: report Overnight they found that thousands of US dollars-worth of gaming equipment they owned or had leased to third parties was suddenly out of reach. And all this at a time when businesses everywhere need all the liquidity they can get.An American company faced with this kind of problem would in all likelihood get on the phone to its lawyers or to the US Embassy to see if any arms could be (legally) twisted.In Russia, the direct approach is more in fashion. Russian business people are by definition not shrinking violets. You need a thick skin, good political contacts and in some cases a set of body armour to make any headway in a post-Soviet economy.IAG understands several of these demi-oligarchs hatched a scheme to snatch back their equipment at night from locked premises. The plan was about to swing into action—until it was pointed out that they would in all likelihood have to face the wrath of an armed and potentially dangerous group—i.e., the local police. The boys in tall peaked hats and sunglasses were already reportedly ticked off at the loss of a lucrative source of unofficial ‘tax’ from the capital’s gambling industry after the unfortunate accidental death of their commander.IAG‘s sources suggest this was the sort of ‘law enforcement’ scenario that Russians—schooled in the world of business negotiation occasionally featuring armed back up—could understand. They decided to relent and try a different tack.There’s a general rule in developing countries (sorry, ’emerging markets’) that the level of accountability of public servants is inversely proportional to the number of people in uniform actually on the streets. By that measure, the Russian traders were probably wise to hold off and seek a negotiated settlement for the return of their kit.last_img

Apple tied to new privacy website suggesting future security marketing

Currently, the site is just a blank white page. MacRumors was fist to notice the domain purchase. Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.If indeed Apple is planning something, it’d fall in line with the company’s ongoing marketing over its products like the iPhone and its Mac computers. During CES in Las Vegas in January, Apple put up a billboard promising “What happens on your iPhone, stays on your iPhone.”Apple’s moves come at a time when privacy issues are squarely in the public debate. Governments are attempting to force, through potential legislation and court battles, access to encrypted messages on WhatsApp, Signal and other apps. They’ve argued, in effect, that privacy is not absolute. Meanwhile, Facebook’s poor handling of user data landed CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg in congressional hearings.The debate has divided the tech industry as well. On one side are companies like Google and Facebook, which make almost all their money from tracking users and showing ads to them. On the other said are companies like Microsoft, whose CEO Satya Nadella says “privacy is a human right.”Apple has gone up against Google and Facebook too. Last year, for example, the company said its Safari browser would prevent companies like Facebook from tracking users without their knowledge. Apple CEO Tim Cook, in pushing on privacy issues, echoed Nadella’s sentiment when he spoke at Apple’s shareholder meeting last week.”We’ve always viewed privacy as a human right,” Cook said. “And in this country, we view it that it’s ingrained in the Constitution.”Originally published March 5, 2:32 p.m. PT.Update, 3:47 p.m.: Includes more details.

UN chief meets Suu Kyi over Rohingya crisis

first_imgUN chief Antonio Guterres urged Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi to allow Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh to return, when they met Tuesday at a summit in the Philippines, his office said.The meeting added to global pressure on Suu Kyi to take action to end the crisis for the Muslim minority, with US secretary of state Rex Tillerson due Tuesday also to hold talks with her in Manila then travel to Myanmar.”The secretary-general highlighted that strengthened efforts to ensure humanitarian access, safe, dignified, voluntary and sustained returns, as well as true reconciliation between communities, would be essential,” a UN statement said, summarising comments to Suu Kyi.More than 600,000 Rohingya have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh in two and a half months.The crisis erupted after Rohingya rebels attacked police posts in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, triggering a military crackdown that saw hundreds of villages reduced to ashes and sparked a massive exodus.Authorities have blocked independent access to northern Rakhine.But journalists and UN officials have collected reams of testimony from Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh describing soldiers and Buddhist mobs committing murder, rape and mass arson.Following its first official investigation into the crisis, the army published a report this week in which it cleared itself of any abuses.Nobel laureate Suu Kyi, a former democracy activist, has been lambasted by rights groups for failing to speak up for the Rohingya or condemn festering anti-Muslim sentiment in the country.But she lacks control over the powerful military, which ruled the country for decades until her party came to power following 2015 elections.The United States has been careful not to place blame on her and has focused instead on the army’s role in the conflict.Guterres and Suu Kyi met in the early hours of Tuesday morning, according to his office.In a summit on Monday night with leaders of the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations, of which Myanmar is a member, Guterres also voiced concern about the Rohingya.He said the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya was a “worrying escalation in a protracted tragedy,” according to the UN statement.He described the situation as a potential source of instability in the region, as well as radicalisation.last_img

With most of the Arizona Cardinals first stringer

first_imgWith most of the Arizona Cardinals’ first stringers expected to sit out Thursday’s preseason finale against the San Diego Chargers, head coach Bruce Arians said tailback Zach Bauman will see an expanded role.Whether it turns out to be a chance to make the Cardinals’ 53-man regular-season roster, or it’s simply an audition for another NFL team looking to bolster its backfield, the Chandler native and Northern Arizona alum is excited for one last opportunity to prove himself. Top Stories Bauman recognizes there’s room for improvement, and after watching the footage of his preseason performances to date, he knows he can do better.“I’m my own biggest critic. I watch the tape and I’m thinking, ‘That’s not me,’” he said. “The speed of the game increases a little bit, and that’s your first live action. You’re thinking so fast… “Running between the tackles is what I love to do, so I think that’s just going to come naturally in this game.”Critics may look at Bauman’s diminutive frame as a disadvantage. Bauman sees it as just the opposite.“On paper, that doesn’t look great, but I have leverage,” he said. “In football, the low man wins, and I start low, so I’m always winning that battle.”On that point, Bauman and Arians are on the same page.“He’s short, but he’s strong,” Arians said. “There’s a lot of backs in the league that are a little bit shorter than him that are strong. “I don’t judge them by height; it’s the strength in which they strike a blow to take on a linebacker.”With at least three tailbacks ahead of him on the depth chart, Bauman’s chances of advancing to the Cardinals’ regular-season opener against the Chargers on Monday, Sept. 8 may be slim. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “I’m looking forward to it. This is what I’ve been waiting for — just an opportunity to show what I can do on the football field,” he said.What message does Bauman want to convey on the field?“Just that I’m a great football player,” he said. “I’m able to make plays when maybe something is not there, and small creases I’m able to get through. Just reiterate that I’m great in pass protection and catching the football, running routes — just showing that I’m an all-around football player.”Bauman made the most of his first taste of real-game NFL action in the Cardinals’ preseason opener against the Houston Texans. In the Cards’ second exhibition game, he had one of the most bizarre touchdown runs you’ll ever see.Arians said he likes what he’s seen from Bauman thus far, but there are things he’d like to see him improve upon on Thursday.“I think the big thing for him is to run the ball inside, quit bouncing everything outside like he did in college and outrunning people. Everybody here can run,” Arians said. “He’s done a good job of pass blocking. He’s got a few of those on tape. He’s not afraid to stick his face in the fan, and he’ll just continue to do what he does.
