Sri Lanka’s national airline announced today that it plans to set up a regional aircraft repair hub with the help of German carrier Lufthansa, the AFP news agency reported.The aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul operations will be a centrepiece of the new US$209 million (S$265.2 million) Mattala Rajapakse International Airport which opened in March, officials said. “We are in discussions to finalise our business plan and work out the equity to be put into the new venture,” Sri Lankan airlines chief executive Kapila Chandrasena told reporters in Colombo. Sri Lankan Airlines said it was working out details with Lufthansa AG’s maintenance arm, Lufthansa Technik, to open the repair facility at the Chinese-built international airport in the island’s south by next July. read more

Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Mondelēz International recently changed the shape of the Toblerone bar, so for the same price the bar contains less chocolate.The company, which also owns Cadbury, said the move was down to the rise in the cost of ingredients, and denied it was a result of Brexit. Some consumers described the move as “the wrong decision” and said the bigger spaces looked “stupid”.In a statement on the Toblerone Facebook page, the company said: “We had to make a decision between changing the shape of the bar, and raising the price.”We chose to change the shape to keep the product affordable for our customers, and it enables us to keep offering a great value product. it had to make a decision between changing the look of the bars or raising their price.” Freddo bars were then hiked in price in 2010 to a whopping 17 pence, and in 2014 it was raised once again to 25 pence.When Freddos were launched they weighed 17g, growing to 20g in 2007, before shrinking back to 18g four years later.Many people have voiced their anger at the change in price: The new #Toblerone.Wrong on so many levels.

Many will remember how the favourite chocolate treat was just 10p in 2000. Mondelez has faced a wave of criticism for “messing” with much-loved Cadbury’s products. Consumers have complained about Daily Milk bars being given rounded edges, bars shrinking, the axing of Cadbury chocolate coins, Bournville chocolate disappearing from the Heroes tub, sultanas in Fruit & Nut bars and axing the company’s traditional Christmas chocolate gift to pensioners.Perhaps the biggest controversy surrounded the 2015 decision to replace Dairy Milk in its recipe for Cadbury’s Creme Eggs with cheaper chocolate.

first_imgAppearance-wise, the Nintendo 3DS doesn’t look like it’s trying to reinvent the wheel. It largely inherits the Nintendo DS Lite’s design, supplementing it with the addition of 3D and a analog joystick. The devil’s in the details, though, and Nintendo has actually gone to great lengths to improve upon the DS Lite’s construction.According to Yui Ehura from Nintendo’s research and engineering department, the 3DS has been designed to make it easier to open than the DS Lite while avoiding the problem of cracked hinges that have plagued previous versions of the console. Additionally, unlike the DS Lite, the 3DS actually has three layers, each stacked on another and purposefully tapered to give your fingers somewhere to grip, preventing the 3DS from flying out of your hands.This tapered design has a drawback, though: the sturdiness and durability suffer in theory. Why? Let’s say you drop the 3DS onto a hard surface, the tapered design will cause all the shock of the impact to be focused on one point. To counter this problem, Nintendo has used a new glass-fiber resin for the 3DS casing to reinforce things, then rearranged the gadget’s inner guts so that damage to the electronics will be minimal when it comes to the trauma of a fall. Nintendo says they’re confident this will end the problem of DS stress cracks.The improvements don’t end there. Nintendo also reworked the buttons and the circle pad to be more durable and aesthetically pleasing. Even the battery cover did not escape a redesign: it now takes up the entire base plate of the console, which is more aesthetically pleasing due to symmetry. You might not consciously notice any of these things, but they all add up to make the 3DS Nintendo’s most well-designed handheld yet.Read more at Kotakulast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Luke Andrew Lazarus, 23, was sentenced to a maximum jail term of five years for anally raping an 18-year-old girl in an alley behind his family’s Kings Cross venue. District Court Judge Sarah Huggett described the assault as an action of a young man who, deluded by the sense of “power and entitlement” stemming from his family’s connection to the Soho Club, went on with this “spontaneous and opportunistic” attack in the early hours of 12 May, 2013.His family, who initially sent a letter to the court requesting the case to remain unexposed in order to protect Luke Lazarus’ promising future, also aimed to procure a series of character references from prominent public figures.Waverley mayor Sally Betts, Tsambico K. Athanasas, who is the honorary secretary of the Honorary Consulate-General of Greece in Brisbane, the South Sydney Rabbitohs rugby league club chairman Nick Pappas, and the parish priest at the Greek Orthodox Christian Church of St George in Rose Bay, Father Gerasimos Koutsouras, vouched for Lazarus’ good character and testified how shocked they were at the news of his conviction.Father Gerasimos even stated that the charges against Lazarus were “an injustice”, highlighting that he has provided hundreds of character references, adding that “the possibility of imprisonment is completely undeserved for this promising young man”.They have all been slammed though, by Australia’s first minister for the prevention of domestic violence and sexual assault, Pru Goward, who is also NSW’s state minister for Women. “Not only does this diminish their standing, it can shatter the confidence of the victim and often discourages them from seeking justice,” the minister said.“The very last thing any victim needs is to feel as though they are not only fighting back against the perpetrator, but also against other respected members of the community.“Victims often withdraw charges, and glowing references about their attackers will not help justice to be done,” Ms Goward added.“This terrible case should serve as a salutary reminder to all of us, but especially those with apparent standing in the community, that they should carefully consider just how willing they are to lend their support to a criminal.”Mayor Sally Betts, on the other hand, who defended Lazarus as a friend of the family, asking the court not to send the man to jail, drew criticism from Waverley residents, and 20 members of her council demanded her resignation. “Writing, signing as mayor of Waverley, requesting a non-custodial sentence for a convicted rapist shows incredibly poor judgment,” stressed Waverley Labor councillor Ingrid Strewe.Cr Betts, who is working with Bondi’s Ways Youth Services to develop some educational programs for young people, suggested Lazarus could do community service instead of going to jail “mentoring young people and preventing others from ruining their lives by doing terrible things”.Ways spokesman David Faktor, though, has adamantly distanced the organisation from the mayor’s comments.“I just want to make it very clear that her views and her position is not that of Ways and we just wouldn’t be in a position to take a stance on what the best sentence is or isn’t in relation to this particular person,” Mr Faktor said.On another, yet not altogether different note, an offensive Soho Club ad that appeared after Luke Lazarus’ rape sentencing has once again stirred the troubled waters of the case.The photo, which was shared on the nightclub’s Facebook page as well as on Twitter, depicted a young woman who appears to be drunk and almost passed out on the ground with her legs spread while gesturing the peace sign. It caused a severe backlash on Twitter and was taken down, as it was considered indicative of the ownership’s stance regarding womens’ safety.last_img read more

Les relevés ont été faits en 1985-1987, 1995-1997 et enfin en 2005-2007. Le résultat est très positif chez les hommes, qui étaient 40% à fumer il y a 20 ans, alors qu’ils ne sont désormais plus que 24,3%. Chez les femmes en revanche, la proportion de fumeuses a augmenté de 2%, passant de 18 à 20%.

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, 3 Nov 2014 – One week after Kerryann Pearce settled in to her new post as an estate agent at Island Living Real Estate headquartered on East Bay Street, she popped up with an idea likely to stir strong opinions for and against, but one she believes will give one of Nassau’s most established districts, Eastern Road, the shot in the arm it deserves and the market it needs.The East, she says, has a lot to learn from the West. “The success story in New Providence real estate for the past decade has been west from the near side of Cable Beach all the way to Old Fort Bay and Albany,” said Pearce. “There is a lot we can learn from what drove sales there and — the demand for attractive condominium living. People want more security and less maintenance.”Now, she says, it is time to take those principles of lifestyle to the eastern side of the island, and in particular, to areas of Eastern Road which she suggests should be re-zoned from single family residential to multi-family.“The East is beginning to show signs of resurgence,” said Pearce. “Eastern Road and its side streets have so many positive things to offer — close to schools, churches, shopping, beautiful views of Montagu Bay, good boating, mature trees, sweet breezes and brilliant landscaping. It really is a beautiful part of the island. But existing offerings do not match current market trends. It is getting more difficult to find buyers who want grand estates. For some of the current owners of those estates, times have changed. Their children are grown. They want to downsize, to find a community that offers lifestyle amenities. And there are not a lot of people coming behind them who want the maintenance of homes they are roaming around alone in a mini-mansion built for large families and elaborate parties decades ago. That means there is a very limited market.”That reality, she said, is playing itself out in the listings on Eastern Road of what she calls “beautiful estates with breathtaking views that stay on the market month after month and, in a few cases, for years.” The answer, she believes, lies in what she calls “a realistic re-zoning.” That re-zoning should be a matter for public consultation, but she suggests an area that would allow for construction of one or two high-end condominium developments with pools, fitness centre, covered parking, maybe even casual dining options and in-house concierge services.“A few years ago, this would not have been practical but since the road improvements that have substantially reduced the time people spend in traffic in peak hours, the time has come to be realistic about the future of the eastern end of the island,” she said. “Eastern Road is one of the treasures of New Providence, and it deserves to be brought into current market realities while preserving its historic integrity with deep set lots, large trees and breathtaking landscaping and views.”Pearce is the newest agent joining the firm that is housed in an historic building on East Bay Street. Island Living Real Estate handles residential and commercial sales and leasing and property management with a niche in the $300,000 to $1 million residential market.

The fine on the parents would be Rs 25,000 and imprisonment on conviction, for permitting their minor children to drive vehicles.

But with the new Act having come into force, they hoped that the parents would ensure that their children do not violate the law. Advertise With Us According to Senior Traffic police officials, more than 400 cases were booked in the recent times and the minor drivers and their parents were counselled at the Begumpet and Goshamahal Traffic Institutes. The minors were warned against driving without licence and valid documents, and parents were asked not to permit their children to drive for the security of their children and safety of other road-users. The underage driving cases are more within the Hyderabad, Cyberabad and Rachakonda traffic police limits. During counselling, the police are making it clear to the parents that once booked and convicted, the children would face problems in finding jobs, securing passports, visas, admissions and so on. Statistics reveal that about 20-25 cases are registered within the city limits on a daily basis.last_img read more

first_imgBudget-carrier SpiceJet said it will soon start offering passengers the choice of booking a taxi for a drop to the airport at the time of booking their flight tickets. For this reason, the airline has collaborated with cab aggregator mytaxiindia.As part of the plan, the airline would give passengers the option of booking a taxi to reach the airport. The option will be available at the time of booking the flight ticket. By doing so, the airline (which operates to 35 destinations across the country), would attract more passengers, thereby increasing its revenues, Press Trust of India reported.SpiceJet Vice President Amit Srivastava feels the collaboration would get the airline more passengers from tier II and tier III cities. “The partnership with ‘mytaxiindia’ will encourage us to explore more routes where the demand could be higher,” Srivastava was quoted as saying by the agency.In addition, he added: “SpiceJet expects the initiative to also help in raking in more revenues with more number of travellers and also complement the government’s overall efforts to boost regional air connectivity.”Mytaxiindia, or MTI, started operations in 2013 and has more than 454 cab operators on-board its services available in 119 cities, PTI added.Last month, the carrier had announced a three-day sale of tickets with domestic base-fare starting from Rs. 511 and international base-fare starting from Rs. 2,111 to mark its 11th anniversary. The sale price was applicable only for direct flights within SpiceJet’s network across seven domestic routes and seven international destinations.last_img read more

Reasons cited for the excess absences include changes in the attendance law that restricts schools’ ability to accept excuse notes and increases in the fidelity of attendance data entry.The leadership of the District’s school system has come under criticism lately for reports of bad attendance among students, particularly at Ballou High School and Dunbar High School. Allen said that 29 percent of all District public high school students are chronically absent or have missed more than 10 percent of school days since the start of school in late August. On Feb. 20, D.C. Schools Chancellor resigned over charges helping his daughter get into a highly sought after D.C. public school.Allen said her office intends to focus more on getting parents involved in making sure that their children go to school. “We need to work on parent education,” she said. “They need to understand why attendance is important. We should also explore the fact that the school itself may be the issue. Is the school welcoming to parents? I know we have much work to do in this are.”Davis said teachers should play a role in solving the attendance crisis but too often, the teacher is the one who is blamed. “Teachers in some schools are under pressure to pass 80 percent of their students,” she said. “They must do this in order to get high evaluations.”It is widely known in the District that if a student is late to school, they often cannot get into the building for classes. Batchelor doesn’t like that. “Students need to be in school and even if they are late, they need to be learning something,” he said.Allen said each school should have Student Support Teams that look at school attendance but confessed that while all schools supposedly have this group, not all of them are active.The discussion had Mable Carter discouraged. “We have failed our children,” Carter said. She suggested the schools need more nurses and outreach counselors to help students.While school attendance dominated the discussion, there was talk about the grading scandal that has been brewing at Ballou. Recently, it has been revealed that many students are getting good grades for courses that are intended for the college-bound only to find when they get to their higher education institutions, they weren’t properly equipped to handle the work and must take non-credit, yet costly remedial classes. “This is an open-secret,” Batchelor said.Davis said Ballou isn’t the only place where this is taking place. “This is a problem system-wide,” she said. “Not only are we setting our students up to fail, they are incurring debt. They aren’t prepared for the workforce and they have to pay back thousands of dollars in student loans.”last_img read more
