WatchOttawa confirms it will intervene in BCs case to block Trans Mountain

OTTAWA — The federal government will intervene in British Columbia’s reference case over the $7.4-billion Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould said Thursday.The case filed in the B.C. Court of Appeal asks if the province has jurisdiction to regulate the transport of oil through its territory, a key question in the political battle over the project.Wilson-Raybould said Ottawa’s view will prevail.“We are confident in Parliament’s jurisdiction and will intervene on the question in order to defend our clear jurisdiction over interprovincial pipelines,” she said in a statement.While project architect Kinder Morgan has halted investment in the expansion unless and until the clouds of uncertainty looming over it can be cleared, giving the government a May 31 deadline, the federal government remains a strong — and increasingly adamant — backer.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has vowed the pipeline will be built, and has instructed Finance Minister Bill Morneau to sit down with Kinder Morgan to find a financial solution that will soothe their investors.He also promised legislation that would reaffirm Ottawa’s authority to press ahead with a development deemed to be in Canada’s national interest.B.C. Premier John Horgan, meanwhile, has said he will use every tool available to stop the pipeline, arguing that his province has every right to protect its residents, economy and environment from the threat of an oil spill.Trudeau has made the pipeline a central component of a vision that couples economic expansion with environmental stewardship.Trudeau said the pipeline was approved by his government in 2016 after a rejigged environmental assessment and Indigenous consultation process, and only in concert with the Liberal climate change and oceans protection plan.Approval came in consultation with the previous B.C. Liberal government, which gave its consent to the project after its own conditions were met.Horgan’s election last year changed everything. His minority government exists at the pleasure of the Green party, and on condition of his continued opposition to the project. read more

Region 5 REO calls police to remove Guyana Times reporter from

Region Five Regional Executive Officer (REO), Ovid Morrison has made calls for the police to remove a reporter attached to the Guyana Times media group from the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) meeting held on Thursday morning.A female corporal speaking with Morrison (in green shirt) next to Guyana Times reporter Andrew Carmichael (seated with camera in his hand)INews was reliably informed that when the meeting was called to order the REO asked for the Times reporter Andrew Carmichael to be removed from the house.However, while the REO asked for the removal of Carmichael, Regional Chairman Vickchand Ramphal said that the REO’s duty was to carry out the orders of the house.This publication was informed that the RDC meeting came to a halt after Ramphal announced that the REO deserted his post as clerk of the house.Morrison reportedly said that the RDC meeting cannot go ahead if he as Clerk is absent.The REO was moments later heard speaking on his cellular phone asking for Inspector Kelly and reporting that he needed two officers to come and remove the said reporter.Based on information received, a female police corporal arrived and after attempts by the REO to have the officer remove Carmichael from the house and utterances by the Chairman stating the responsibilities of the REO, the police officer left.The REO then placed another call to the Fort Wellington Police Station which is situated next the RDC boardroom.This publication was reliably informed, from a source, that the police have refused to get involved.During an RDC meeting held in February of this year Councillor Dolston Hudson accused Guyana Times, among a few other media houses of providing inaccurate coverage of their meetings.The management of the Guyana Times media group has since condemned in the strongest possible terms the reported action by the REO to have its reporter removed from a public meeting.Moreover, they have indicated to this publication their intention of lodging a formal complaint with the Guyana Press Association.

MLA EXpress – a new automated mineralogy analyser from FEI

first_imgFEI has announced the release of MLA EXpress, a “low-cost, bench-top, automated mineralogy analyser that may enable the mining industry to maximise the recovery of valuable metals from the ore.” MLA EXpress extends mineral liberation analysis to a broader scale of mining operations, with shipment of the first systems scheduled for Q1 2013.“Mine geologists and metallurgists are challenged to determine metal recovery potential from grade information alone,” stated Paul Scagnetti, FEI’s Natural Resources Vice President and General Manager. “Once the ore is on the conveyor belt, they are further challenged to optimise processing methods and sequence to maximise the recovery of valuable metals from the ore. And if recovery should drop, they must quickly discover the cause of the recovery excursion and recommend appropriate corrective action. MLA EXpress gives them the graphic, mineralogical and textural information from the ore they need to make the best decisions at a cost that is affordable for smaller operations.”Automated mineralogy involves a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and X-Ray spectrometer to obtain a microscopic view of structure and composition of an ore. The MLA EXpress is well-suited for typical mining operational environments; the simple design requires no special operational skills. Multiple analytical modes enable the flexibility to accommodate a variety of ore types and analysis requirements. Special detector and pulse counting technologies enable extremely high count rates for fast, precise analytical results. Most importantly, the low price and low operating costs of the MLA EXpress make it a cost-effective solution for a broad range of mining operations.last_img read more

Nearly half the worlds PCs use pirated software and think thats AOK

first_imgThere’s a good chance you’re reading this article on a computer with pirated software. We’re not accusing all of our readers of running illegally-downloaded programs, but according to the Business Software Alliance, half of the world’s PCs are using pirated software, so there’s a pretty good chance you are too.The BSA is a trade group that represents a number of the largest software makers, including Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, and Symantec. The group’s primary goal is to stop copyright infringement of software made by its members. The BSA survey of 15,000 PC users in 32 different countries revealed that 47 percent of PC users worldwide think there’s nothing wrong about using pirated software. That number includes buying one license for multiple users or downloading the software from a peer-to-peer network.The survey also showed that 86 percent of computer users in China get their software illegally most or all of the time. In fact, back in May, Microsoft estimated that its per-PC profit level in China is about one-sixth of what it is elsewhere around the world.Since China’s PC market is surpassing the U.S.’s market for the first time ever, it’s a big deal that the country is also seeing the most cases of pirated software. And illegally acquired software is nothing to sneeze about. The BSA said it cost the industry almost $59 billion worldwide last year. Although China’s piracy trend is spreading the fastest, the country wasn’t the top sofwatre pirates this past year. China came in as the world’s second-largest with $7.78 billion of stolen software being installed last year.The U.S., who until a few weeks ago was the biggest consumer of PCs, saw an estimated $9.6 billion in pirated software last year.via France24last_img read more

New customers will get a $10 discount for the first month. The package includes more than 90 channels.The company is also raising prices on its Fubo Extra package, which includes more than 110 channels, from $49.99 to $59.99 a month.In a statement, FuboTV said the price change comes with the addition of several channels over the last year, including AMC, Cartoon Network, CNN, TBS and TNT. The service will soon add channels such as BET, CMT, Comedy Central, MTV and Nickelodeon.”We are committed to continuing to deliver the best of live TV to our customers, as well as an exceptional user experience with 4K streams and premium features,” the company said in the statement. Other TV streaming services have also increased their prices lately.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

5G wont erase the digital divide

first_img From New York to Chicago, whole communities risk being left behind if their low-income populations lack adequate internet access. The absence of in-home internet connections can lead to unemployment and homelessness for adults who can’t apply for jobs online or tap into the new tech economy. For children, it’s the erosion of a competitive edge against their peers if they can’t access educational resources — or turn in daily homework assignments. As the economy moves toward high-tech jobs, a limited cellphone data plan just doesn’t cut it.Cities can helpIn Chicago, one of the first cities in the world to get 5G, there are entire neighborhoods where nearly half of the residents still lack an internet subscription. While Sprint boasts consistent 5G speeds of 150 megabits per second and Verizon can surpass 1 gigabits per second, according to CNET’s speed test in Chicago, 56% of West Englewood residents still lack household internet access. That’s where community groups like Chicktech Chicago come in. The local nonprofit, which primarily serves to expose female students to STEM through workshops, lets them stay after hours to complete their homework assignments. district-41-officeFor the past four years New York Councilwoman Alicka Amprey-Samuel says she has been experiencing issues with her Altice Optimum internet service. Dhara Singh/CNET “There have been several times where workshops have ended..I sit down with several students so they can do their homework at the workshops,” said Nicole Frapolly, founder of the chapter.  “Especially in Chicago [internet access] must be a basic human right because so much of their homework is done online.”Frapolly believes a partnership with Chicago would allow her to extend her efforts to more schools.A spokesman for the city didn’t respond to a request for comment. Even in areas where city councils are responsive to concerns about equitable internet access, like in Brooklyn, conversations with providers are a work in progress. “There have been discussions around [a] low-cost [internet] plan, but it wasn’t necessarily low cost…instead more incentives to sign up with [one-time] discounts,” Ampry-Samuel said in an interview. Amprey-Samuel has talked to Altice and the New York mayor’s office about the need for reliable, inexpensive broadband in her district. But she says nothing has come from those conversations. She’s not optimistic about 5G rolling out in her area — or home broadband connections improving anytime soon. When Verizon started installing high speed FIOS in New York in 2008, it skipped her district. The city sued Verizon in 2015 for failing to deploy fiber to the city’s 3.1 million households despite its promise to do so, and the case is ongoing.  Today we don’t even have the [basic] connection so why are we even talking about the next level of connectivity? New York Councilwoman Alicka Amprey-Samuel Tags Mobile 5G means more than just fast downloads to your phone Now playing: Watch this: Comments Samsung, LG, Motorola: How soon can we expect 5G phones? More than half of Brownsville residents say that they rely on public Wi-Fi because it is “free or cheaper to use” than other connectivity options. Dhara Singh/CNET Twelve miles from the hustle and bustle of Times Square lies the Brooklyn neighborhood of Brownsville, a part of New York few tourists ever see. Gone are the flashing lights and high-tech billboards of the “crossroads of the world.” Instead, there’s a two-story sleek building that stands in stark contrast to the bare, industrial streets surrounding it. It’s in this district building that New York Councilwoman Alicka Amprey-Samuel says she’s been experiencing issues with her Altice Optimum internet service for the past four years. When it rains, she says the service stops. Her complaints to the internet service provider haven’t changed the status quo. “When the city or the country is having a conversation about the next best thing, [our] conversation is always how can we get something that’s even half-way decent,” she said. “My people don’t even have the same grocery stores that other people have.”Amprey-Samuel’s isn’t the only one suffering connection woes across the greater Brownsville and Ocean Hill communities she represents. In Brownsville alone, 56% of residents say they rely on public Wi-Fi because it’s “free or cheaper to use” than other connectivity options, according to a recent report by Brooklyn Public Library. Even if they have broadband, like Ampry-Samuel, the service is often spotty. The hype about 5G — the next generation of mobile technology, which promises high speeds up to 100 times faster than current 4G tech — masks the reality that millions of Americans are still waiting for adequate broadband access of any kind. If residents can’t afford their internet service, chances are that buying a Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G phone for $1,099 isn’t on their to-do list. Nearly a third of US households, or about 100 million people, lack a broadband internet connection of at least 25 megabits per second, according to market research firm NPD. Rural households especially are on the losing side of the digital divide  — about one in five rural households don’t have a broadband connection. It’s an issue that’s been taken up by Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who last week called for an $85 billion rural broadband program. But it’s not just a rural problem, as Amprey-Samuel knows. She lives in Brooklyn, the most populated part of America’s biggest city. Even there, a reliable internet connection can be rare.  Byrum is referring to Form 477 data, which internet service providers must report twice a year to th FCC. The form describes an ISP’s coverage and advertised speeds across the US, but the FCC doesn’t verify the accuracy of that data. Additionally, if a single census block, usually around 4,000 residents, has only one home that can access broadband service, then the whole area is considered covered.In response to public complaints, the FCC has pledged to improve its broadband map to show whether buildings using the same network technology boast different speeds. To bridge the digital divide, it announced a two-phase reverse auction for companies to target “unserved locations” in census blocks. Additionally, it will create a crowd-sourcing portal that will “gather input from consumers as well as from state, local and Tribal governments,” once the Office of Economics and Analytics issues a notice. Neither the New York City Chief Technology Officer nor the FCC responded to a request for comment. Cheaper isn’t equitableWhile 95% of Chicago homes can get online, according to the city’s latest Technology Access and Adoption Study, low-income residents in the city are “five times more likely not to have internet access.”Karen Mossenberger, professor at the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University — who conducted research on Chicago’s Smart Cities — the city’s program to close the digital divide, says an absence of digital literacy, coupled with already existing unpaid bills in a low-income household, makes it difficult to take advantage of cheaper broadband.”If households qualify for broadband…[but] if they owe bills which a lot of low-income households do — they won’t be eligible,” said Mossenberger, referring to programs such as Comcast Internet Essentials, which promises a monthly fee of $9.95. Slow speeds also contribute to the inequity. Discounted programs often offer speeds that fall well below the 25 megabits per second threshold. In Seattle, both Comcast Internet Essentials and Simply Internet by Waves boast prices below $10 a month, however they only offer speeds at 15 megabits per second and 10 megabits per second, respectively. Additionally, Internet Essentials users only get access to the Xfinity public Wi-Fi network for 40 hours per week, while full paying customers get unlimited access. “That’s the long-term problem — that [speed] is fine for someone to do homework and basic needs, but it’s not digitally equitable if someone doesn’t have the same access as…everybody else,” said Alice Lawson, broadband and cable program manager for Seattle. Residents need at least need at least 25 Mbps internet speed to stream videos in HDR, download large files or participate in cloud sharing efficiently.The absence of fast internet service isn’t the sole factor limiting broadband coverage. In Seattle, the city partners with carriers to make affordable broadband options, but low-income residents sometimes aren’t aware of the programs. “When people do not speak the language, they might not get information about the affordable internet programs, and they might not be able to compare plans and prices…or [address] technical issues,” said Karie Wong, coordinator at the Chinese Information Service Center, who works with Seattle to help immigrants from Vietnam to even Russia gain internet access.Comcast spokeswoman Trinity Thorpe-Lubneuski said its Internet Essentials already offers marketing materials in different languages and call centers can handle 240 different languages.Who is 5G reaching now?While leading mobile carriers such as Verizon and T-Mobile aren’t shying from the in-home broadband space, their 5G in-home service is still in its early stages. For low-income Americans, access anytime soon may be a far stretch in their imagination. Verizon, the largest carrier by customers, has home 5G service in select areas in Sacramento, Los Angeles, Houston and Indianapolis. When asked about 5G prospects for low-income communities in cities such as New York, Kevin King, a spokesman for Verizon, doesn’t rule it out. “The goal of 5G is we’re building it as kind of a process — our goal is having a nationwide 5G network,” he said. brownsville-brooklyn-library-branchNeither libraries nor next-gen phones can replace the need for in-home broadband. Dhara Singh/CNET Competitor T-Mobile, after receiving Justice Department approval to merge with Sprint last month, aims to cover more than half of US households with 5G broadband service in excess of 100 megabits per second by 2024. It’s also committed to launching a home 5G broadband service, although it’s light on details.As for underserved areas, this March it only mentioned launching a limited LTE home internet service and hopes to connect 50,000 homes by the end of this year. Sprint, however currently has 5G “smart hubs” with HTC that for a monthly price of $60 per month gives users up to 100GB of data. Users can connect up to 20 devices over WiFi.”We also established milestones to cover 85% of rural America with 5G on low-band spectrum in three years and 90% in six years,” T-Mobile CEO John Legere said in an earlier press release. While Verizon and T-Mobile take their time spreading in-home 5G broadband, smaller players such as Atlas Networks have tried to take the reigns for spreading in-home broadband. Atlas, which is local to Seattle, has tried to reach low-income populations through negotiations with the city. “Atlas networks is a wonderful company because they are interested in having affordability and we’ve been working with them to [team] them up with affordable housing,” Lawson said. However, when the attention turns on major 5G mobile carriers, Lawson says the city simply doesn’t have leverage to ensure carriers such as Verizon and T-Mobile disperse small cells that capture 5G signals all throughout the city, especially with the FCC mandating a shorter period of time to review the deployment of small cells. “When the control and ability to collect fees is taken away from local communities, then there is less of an ability for us to collect fees to put back into public benefits for low income communities,” says David Keyes, Seattle’s digital equity program manager.Hanging on legislative threadsClayton Banks, co-founder of Silicon Harlem, a company that aims to make the group’s namesake upper Manhattan neighborhood a technology hub, remains optimistic about bridging the digital divide. He has reason. Silicon Harlem brokered a deal for Spectrum — the cable and internet arm of Charter Communications — to provide internet service in some residential buildings in Harlem for $40 a month, discounted from the standard $150 rate.t-mobile-signLess than a mile from Amprey-Samuel’s office, a bright magenta-pink T-Mobile billboard states in bold font, “Nobody connects more New Yorkers.” Dhara Singh/CNET “We are in a crisis,” Banks said. “It’s a crisis we can solve.” Both Banks and Keyes have faith in the Digital Equity Act of 2019, which was introduced by Sen. Patty Murray (D-Washington). The act will establish two grant programs administered by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration to spur efforts for more digital equity. Even presidential candidates such as Warren have recently announced their own plans for increasing broadband coverage to unserved area. Not only has she promised $85 million in federal funding for “fiber structure necessary to bring high-speed broadband,” but she also wants to allow local communities to build their own broadband networks. Twenty six states currenly prohibit city-owned networks. “This ends when I’m president,” Warren wrote last week in a Medium blog post. “I will make sure every home in America has a fiber broadband connection at a price families can afford. That means publicly owned and operated networks — and no giant ISPs running away with taxpayer dollars.” This optimism, however strong, may take time before it trickles down to Amprey-Samuel and her district.  Less than a mile from her office, where commuters step off the L at Atlantic Avenue Station, a bright magenta-pink T-Mobile billboard states in bold font, “Nobody connects more New Yorkers.” While mobile hotspots with capped data can serve as temporary solutions for families wishing to connect to the internet and 5G makes its mark across America, neither libraries nor next-gen phones can replace in-home broadband. For Alicka Amprey-Samuel’s district issues such as the availability of grocery stores take precedence over next generation technology.  “Today we don’t even have the [basic] connection so why are we even talking about the next level of connectivity?”‘ Ampry-Samuel said. Verizon declined to comment on the litigation. Altice said it already offers a low-cost service, called Altice Advantage Internet service, anywhere in Brooklyn with speeds of 30 megabits per second speed and a monthly price of $14.99. However, to enroll in its discounted program, households need to participate in the National School Lunch Program, attend a New York City Public School, receive Supplemental Security Income or fulfill other listed requirements. The federal government’s roleIt’s not just up to the New York city government and carriers to enable high internet speeds. One of the biggest problems with making sure every part of the country has broadband is that the national maps used to track access are faulty, experts say. Greta Byrum, co-director of the digital equity laboratory at the New School in New York, says previous misleading data on the FCC’s broadband map contributes to the digital divide in New York. “Data that [the FCC] collects from the broadband providers are aggregated to Census tracts” Byrum said. “It’s so self reported and there’s no testing and enforcement from the providers.” 13 Photos 24 Share your voice 4:09 Verizonlast_img read more

BioWare intern now most senior member of Mass Effect Andromeda design team

first_imgBioWare has seen a steady stream of high-profile resignations recently. Prominent members of the studio, including Senior Editor Cameron Harris, Senior Development Director Chris Wynn, and long-time BioWare writer David Gaider all stepped down in the last year. The team behind the upcoming game Mass Effect Andromeda has been particularly hard hit. Following this week’s resignation of head narrative designer, Gary Vakarian, the studio has lost all of its chief members. As of this writing, the senior-most member of the staff is BioWare intern Connie Verner, who joined the studio in September 2015.“Technically I’ve been a Bioware staff member since 2011, back when I won the Admiral For A Day contest when they were promoting Mass Effect 3.” says Verner of her work history with the company. “But my internship on Andromeda started last September, which means I have two weeks seniority over most of the other interns. I mean the Senior Staff.”“We’re also bringing in some of the biggest Mass Effect fans in the world to fill out the team,” said Verner. “We’ve done a good job getting them up to speed, too. The new Art Director, Danny — his parents wouldn’t let him play the first Mass Effect game when it came out, but he’s got an old Xbox 360 in his room now, so the whole team will be ready to go by the end of the month.”Following the most recent wave of resignations, Electronic Arts addressed concerns that Andromeda might be delayed even further than its current 2017 release. We spoke to EA’s Vice President of Community Relations, Arthur Saren, who told us “It’s true that some prominent personnel at BioWare have stepped down since Electronic Arts acquired the company in 2007. From founders like Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, to this morning’s abrupt resignation of Stavros Pelinkovicci, the long-time janitor at BioWare’s office.”“However, EA still retains ownership of the many characters and intellectual properties created by that team,” continued Mr. Saren “and we have a new group of enthusiastic young designers — some of whom have, in fact played, Baldur’s Gate — who will bring the classic BioWare franchises to a new generation of video game consumers.”Mr. Saren was joined at the press conference by Mikey Onassi, BioWare’s Acting Voice Director, who said “Oh my God! Jennifer Hale just walked by the conference room! She’s so awesome,” before chasing after the prolific voice actress with his autograph book.last_img read more

Prosecution granted extra time in police trial

first_imgThe prosecution in the trial of former police deputy chief Andreas Kyriacou, dismissed for allegedly leaking classified internal police documents, on Wednesday was granted until September 20 to furnish the defence with earlier internal probes that found no evidence of the identity of the person behind the leaks.In the last hearing in July, defence lawyer Andros Pelecanos asked that the prosecution share the two probes, as well as the full text of the investigation that led to his client facing trial.New state prosecutors were only recently appointed and asked the court for additional time to address the defence’s requests.Kyriacou faces three counts of violating his duty of secrecy and leaking classified information.The charges relate to a tip regarding a planned murder, provided by the Serbian Interpol, which the local chapter botched when they tried to call what they thought was the Belgrade Interpol office, in fact alerting the suspected assassins themselves.The story made headlines in local press.In another instance, an internal report on preventing and tackling corruption in the police force, prepared in January 2015, ended up in the hands of Akel MP Irene Charalambidou, who was seen waving it in a House ethics committee session in June 2016.Excerpts from this report, too, made its way to the press the next day.The charge sheet was filed on May 30 and features a total of 27 witnesses, including Justice Minister Ionas Nicolaou.Kyriacou’s lawyer claims the Interpol story ran in the press before his client had received the report in June 2016, which would preclude him from being the leak.An investigation conducted by three independent criminal investigators appointed by attorney-general Costas Clerides found that “the only person who could have leaked confidential and sensitive information from the Interpol file to the media was deputy police chief Andreas Kyriacou”.When announcing the investigation’s findings last May, Clerides described how the report on the prevention and combating corruption in the police force, dated January 20, 2015, was seen in Charalambidou’s hands during the House committee session in June 2016.“The next day, parts of the report were published in a daily newspaper,” he said.“The body of direct and circumstantial evidence collected suggests that deputy police chief Andreas Kyriacou is involved in the leaking.”Days later, Anastasiades fired Kyriacou, replacing him with Kypros Michaelides.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

commerce with New Delhi Australia has been an intensely serious supporter of the global non-proliferation regime ever since it gave up its own nuclear-weapon aspirations and ratified the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in 1972 Canberra has been especially vocal against nuclear testingalthough before Indians assume that this is somehow an anti-Indian stance it is worth noting that ordinary Australians reserved much more vitriol for the Frenchback when they tested in the South Pacificthan they ever did for India or any other nation It is now widely recognised in Australia than Canberras response to the 1998 Indian tests was an over-reactionled by a government seeking needlessly to pre-empt the kind of public anger that had been shown against Paris That saidit would still be extraordinary to imagine that any future Australian uranium supply to India would survive further nuclear explosive tests by New Delhi which thankfully are an unlikely prospectand one to be discouraged Of courseit may strike Indians as hypocritical that Australia has been an anti-nuclear crusader while under the shelter of the American extended nuclear deterrence umbrella And in the 1950s Australia even hosted British nuclear tests on its soil Butin fairnessit must be recognised that many well-meaning and progressive Australians are opposed to all nuclear weaponsuncomfortable with uranium mining and nuclear energyand consider the British atomic tests a disgraceful stain on their nations history And many Australiansespecially in the Labor Partyhave tended automatically to identify NPT membership with good non-proliferation behaviour perhaps not fully aware of the contentious history of that treatyincluding Indias principled efforts to make it less discriminatory at its inceptionand that fact that some of the worst sins of proliferation have been committed by certain NPT parties Stillover the past decade Australians have become increasingly pragmatic about the changing international orderincluding the changing nuclear order For instancethe Howard government moved in 2006 to sell uranium to China and then in 2007 to Russiain both cases under strict safeguards Rudd and Gillard have honoured those deals Any future supply to India would of course need similar safeguards And there is now broad consensus in Australia across politicsthe strategic communitybusinessmedia and a highly multicultural society that close ties with a rising India are essential for Australias future Although there is much hype about Australias economic dependence on China admittedly its largest trading partner the Australia-India business relationship is growing fastespecially in energy supply India is on the verge of overtaking South Korea as Australias third-largest export marketand could eventually push aside Japan for second place The Indian-Australian community is growing fast and may soon exercise some electoral influence as a few Labor parliamentarians may be mindful Despite the controversies over the welfare of Indian studentsand the exaggerated negative images of Australia in parts of the Indian mediamost Australians are well disposed towards India and are instinctively comfortable with its pluralistic and democratic ethos Australian concern about Chinese military weight and political systemmeanwhilehas been growingand Canberra sees the merits of a balancing strategy even while it continues to engage China as President Obamas recent visit Down Under made clear All of this helps explain why the timefinallyhas come for the Australian Labor Party to confront the issue that has bedevilled its relations with the worlds most populous democracy Labors philosophy should of course chime with the best aspirations of an emerging India the idea of bringing opportunitydignity and improved quality of life to a large portion of humanityhowever great the challenges and compromises necessary along the way It has long struck me as strange that the Australian Left supposedly supportive of a just international order has not found more common cause with India This may be changing at last It seems that many within the Labor ranks are waking up to the fact thatwhatever India did in 1974it must now be accepted as part of the nuclear non-proliferation solutionand can no longer be treated as part of the problem I

pool storming through in the final lap to touch first in 4758 seconds Pieter Timmers of Belgium took the silver in 4780 and defending Olympic champion Nathan Adrian of the United States claimed the bronze in 4785 Trailing seventh at the turn Chalmers powered through the field in the last 50 metres recording a split of 2444 seconds for the second lap to become the first Australian man to win the event since Mike Wenden in 1968 at Mexico City Only 083 seconds separated all eight men as the spray flew in the final drive for the wall “It’s not sinking into me that I’ve actually won so I’m very excited” Chalmers 18 told reporters “I was next to the reigning Olympic champion Although it was pretty daunting I loved every second of it” But he voiced regret for team-mate Cameron McEvoy second at last year’s world championships who managed only seventh in 4812 seconds “I don’t want to celebrate too much because I know it would have been very hard for him” he said Caeleb Dressel of the United States got off to a fast start but it was Canada’s Santo Condorelli who led after 50 metres from Adrian who had qualified fastest for the final despite only just squeezing into the semi-finals from the heats “I’m so proud to be a medallist for two Olympiads” Adrian told reporters “It’s what you work for It would be great to have gold but in this day and age the 100 freestyle is maybe the most fickle event out there” The result was a huge disappointment for Australia’s McEvoy who dropped the 200 freestyle from his Rio schedule in order to focus on the sprints For all the latest Sports News
