Russian coal mine accident kills 36 including 5 rescuers

by The Associated Press Posted Feb 28, 2016 4:06 am MDT Last Updated Feb 28, 2016 at 11:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MOSCOW – A methane gas leak at a coal mine in Russia’s far north triggered three explosions that ignited fires and partially collapsed the mine, killing 36 people, officials said Sunday.The dead included five rescue workers and a mine worker who were killed early Sunday when the third explosion rocked the Severnaya mine in Vorkuta, a town north of the Arctic Circle in the Komi region, the emergency services said.The first two explosions struck late Thursday, killing four miners and trapping 26 others.Denis Paikin, technical director for mine operator Vorkutaugol, said Sunday that given the level of gas in the mine, the degree of destruction and the trajectory of the fire, which continued to burn, all the missing miners were presumed dead. Federal officials later confirmed that none of the trapped miners had survived.At the time of the first blast, 111 miners were underground and 81 were rescued.Russia’s industrial safety watchdog, Rostekhnadzor, said the accident was a natural disaster.“According to the materials that have been obtained and preliminary information, the accident had natural causes and was a geological event,” said Alexander Goncharenko, who heads the regional branch of the watchdog, Russian news agencies reported. He did not elaborate.The Investigative Committee, however, said it had not yet determined what caused the gas explosions and also scolded the Komi administration for demanding that the investigation be fully transparent.“No official besides the leadership of the Investigative Committee has the right to demand anything,” agency spokesman Vladimir Markin said. “The Investigative Committee is a federal body that answers directly to the president of Russia.”The Komi administration later issued a statement apologizing for the phrasing and saying it had full confidence that investigators would determine who bore responsibility for the accident and hold them accountable.

Klopp indifferent about taking a break from league action

first_imgLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp seemed less concerned when asked about taking a break from Premier League action to play in the FA Cup.The Reds travel to the Molineux to face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday, on the back of their 2–1 loss to Manchester City in the league last Thursday.Speaking about the lack of opportunity to get an immediate response to the City loss in the league, Klopp said, according to the club’s official website:“I don’t think about things I can’t change too much.”“I don’t know, it’s OK, it’s like it is, we’ve known it for a while, so it’s not that I feel we have to react immediately in the league because that would feel a little bit like we are insecure about ourselves. We don’t know exactly how it will happen.”Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“When the draw came up and we saw Wolves it was like, ‘wow, thank you very much’ and it’s away. Then we played there and it was really difficult. Now we have to go there again and so it’s a really tough draw and nobody was looking forward to it and saying at the moment of the draw, ‘nice game, let’s go there and win’.”“We have Brighton to come after and it is always a tough place to go, they’ve had a fantastic season. Do I want play Brighton directly after Man City?

NagaCorp to begin Naga3 construction in late September McNally

first_imgNagaCorp Chairman Tim McNally says the company is planning to begin construction of its Naga3 development in late September or early October.The Hong Kong-listed firm released latest details of its planned US$3.5 billion expansion of Cambodia integrated resort NagaWorld earlier this week, which it says will set a standard to rival the best IRs in Macau. Lack of premium mass strategy begs questions of SJM’s Grand Lisboa Palace launch: analysts Speaking to Bloomberg TV on Wednesday, McNally also provided an update on the timeline to begin construction with late September set as the preferred date pending final approval at an upcoming Extraordinary General Meeting.“We have an EGM on 8 August to brief and get the concurrence of our minority shareholders … from there we’re hoping to commence construction at the end of September, early October,” he said.The Naga3 development is certain to be approved given that major shareholder Dr Chen Lip Keong holds a majority 66.10% stake. Dr Chen is also contributing 50% of funding to the project, which will add an extra 4,730 hotel rooms to NagaWorld.McNally said the proposed funding model, with the other 50% to be contributed by NagaCorp itself, was considered the best option to serve all stakeholders.“We feel that’s the best without diminishing either the interests of our minority shareholders so we can continue our dividend practices and policies and also minimize our risk,” he said. “The controlling shareholder has that great a confidence where he is going to put up 50% of the money. This is 50% investment by the company without reducing our 100% ownership rights.”Asked about the need for so many new hotel rooms, McNally said, “The Ministry of Tourism recently projected that Cambodia really needs another 100,000 additional hotel suites just to keep up with the tourism growth and demand, so our contribution will be significant.“We have a monopoly license until 2035 and we want to maximize that license. We have a lot of confidence.” RelatedPosts Strong VIP growth sees Okada Manila GGR climb 72% in August Load More Genting’s Resorts World Las Vegas names five key additions to executive teamlast_img read more

Ravaged homes to no food water and power Heres the update a

first_imgAn estimated one crore people in 10,000 villages and 52 urban agglomerations in around 14 districts were affected by Cyclone Fani.IANSOne week after Cyclone Fani ravaged the state of Odisha, residents still don’t have power and constant supply of food and water.Over two lakh people, reportedly, do not have a power supply in the state while the climate made a dramatic U-turn from a cyclone to an intense heat wave currently wreaking havoc. To make matters worse, along with power, there is also no steady supply of water to combat the scorching heat.The lack of basic facilities brought many angry citizens of Odisha to the street protesting and demanding the restoration of electricity which was hit badly after 1.56 lakh electric poles were uprooted during the storm.The protesters had blocked a road near Garage Chhak in Bhubaneshwar and other parts of the state.”We were scared as angry demonstrators threatened and tried to attack us. We have sought protection from the police,” said N K Sahu, Central Electricity Supply Utility (CESU) was quoted as saying by PTI.”We have prepared a roadmap for electrification. With additional manpower from other states available, restoration work is picking up,” A P Padhi said, adding that power supply was restored to around 50 per cent of electricity consumers.In addition to this, the Sanjay Singh, Information and Public Relations secretary is confident that 100 per cent power supply will be restored by Sunday, May 12 across the state. However, this is a bit doubtful since the restoration work in Puri will begin on that day and it is unsure when it will be completed. Puri was the worst hit by Cyclone Fani when it made landfall in the coastal city last week.Cyclone Fani, which hit Odisha last week, killed 48 people, damaged 5.08 lakh houses and destroyed 34.56 lakh livestock. The State Level Banker’s Committee has decided to reschedule the payment of loans in order to provide some sort of relief to the affected people.last_img read more

Coalition Works to Prevent RentalVoucher Discrimination

first_imgralejandro@afro.com Being forced to live in areas of concentrated poverty and far from work are just some of the consequences many Marylanders face because of the state’s lack of source of income (SOI) protection laws, which require landlords to accept any legal form of income for the purpose of renting their properties.  New, if limited, protections are now in place in Baltimore City, but the fight to pass an SOI law in the General Assembly continues, with advocates waiting to see how November’s election might affect prospects for passage.SOI laws protect renters from being discriminated against on the basis of the types of legal income they use to pay their rent.  While one of the most vulnerable groups that such laws protect are recipients of Housing Choice Vouchers (formerly Section 8), they also protect renters who rely on disability or social security payments, among others.  Under an SOI regime, potential renters are still subject to any other requirement a landlord may have, such as a clean credit history or lack of a criminal background.  SOI laws only prohibit arbitrary discrimination based on the source of income.Currently, only Frederick, Howard, and Montgomery counties, as well as the cities of Frederick and Annapolis, have SOI protections.  Just this summer, Baltimore City passed a bill which would extend SOI protections to any developments receiving municipal subsidies, including but not limited to Baltimore’s inclusionary housing subsidy.Since 2010, the Maryland HOME (Housing Opportunities Made Equal) Act Coalition (MHAC), representing approximately 80 organizations, has been fighting for passage of SOI protections statewide.  In 2013, Senate Bill 487, the Maryland HOME Act, came within one vote of passing the Senate, and the coalition believes it has the votes in the House necessary for passage if the Senate can come together behind a version of this bill.For Antonia Fasanelli, executive director of the Homeless Persons Representation Project and the leader of MHAC, SOI laws ensure that people have the option to live near their jobs or families, but they also protect renters from unscrupulous landlords.“We know that people, because of this kind of (income) discrimination, pay hundreds of dollars in application fees for buildings that never intend to take them because of the kind of income they have,” said Fasanelli.For Rabbi Bruce Kahn, former executive director and current board member of the Equal Rights Center, a member organization of MHAC, SOI protections would also ensure that persons relying on housing choice vouchers do not lose that valuable assistance.“What happens is somebody applies for a voucher and waits a very very long time to get one, finally gets it, can’t find—in the amount of time that’s required—can’t find a unit or a unit of one’s choice for which to use that voucher, to apply that voucher, and then has to turn that voucher back in,” said Kahn, who pointed out that most voucher holders are single moms with children, people with disabilities, the elderly poor, and veterans.Both Kahn and Fasanelli point out that the lack of SOI protections in the state create poverty corridors where low or fixed-income persons are forced to live because their income is discriminated against in other areas of the state, forcing them into neighborhoods that may be far from their places of employment, their families, and good schools for their children.Fasanelli is happy to see that Baltimore City now has improved, if not full, SOI protections, and says that prospects for the Maryland HOME Act in the General Assembly are rather up in the air until after the election on Nov. 4 determines the assembly’s makeup.last_img read more

What Costa Rica taught me about motherhood whether I like it or

first_imgSee also: La horma de mi zapato – on love and taxisTo have a child in another country is to take on an entire nation as your mother-in-law. It’s a new family, or culture, into which you’ve married, and which once accepted you without much comment, but now has plenty to say about your every move. At least, it’s like that in Costa Rica, where the usual level of advice-giving bestowed upon a new mother reaches epic proportions.My actual mother-in-law is very relaxed and has never given me any unsolicited parenting advice whatsoever, now that I think of it. Of course, she doesn’t need to, because cashiers, waitresses, random passersby, and even our neighborhood drunk have been more than happy to instruct me. I’m not complaining – not much, anyway – because this interference goes hand-in-hand with unbelievable kindness and support. But especially in the first few months of motherhood, the incessant instructions from total strangers can be a bit trying.It’s also quite edifying. Here are a few things Costa Ricans have taught me about parenting. To clarify, these are lessons I’ve been taught, but not all are things I’ve learned. There’s a difference. Like any mother-in-law’s advice, some are gems, and others you hold at arms’ length. To wit:1. It’s never too hot out to wrap your baby head-to-toe in another fleece blanket. I knew this one was coming years before I became a mother. I was out running on a scorching day, sweat pouring not only from my forehead but from every inch of skin on every person I passed, when I spotted a tiny baby wearing thick woolen pajamas, mittens, bunny slippers, and a Russian-ushanka-style hat with ear flaps. I’m dead serious. Why more babies aren’t hospitalized for heat exhaustion, I don’t know. I’ve been reprimanded for insufficiently clothing my baby more times than I can count, including once on a muggy bus where we were all fanning ourselves desperately and my daughter was sensibly clad in a sleeveless cotton dress. The woman next to me commented on the extreme heat, mentioned that the baby looked hot as well, and then asked, “But that’s all you put her in? Aren’t you worried she’ll catch a cold?” At which point I whipped out an ushanka and blanketed my baby’s ears in fur. (At least, I think that would have been the only acceptable response.)2. Chamomile tea solves everything. This is one I’ve taken on board wholeheartedly. In fact, it’s strange to think that there was a time in my life when I didn’t think of chamomile tea in almost any situation, for babies or adults. Gas or colic? A little tea in the bottle, and more for a breastfeeding mom. Heading off for vaccinations? Put some washcloths in a jar of tea in the fridge so they’re nice and cool to reduce swelling afterwards. Teething? Rub a special chamomile powder directly on the gums. Bump on the head? Stressful day? Heart attack in the works? Everything deserves a little té de manzanilla. It represents a broader characteristic of Costa Rica that I admire tremendously – an affection for simple, plant-based cures, not because they’re trendy, but because they’re simple, cheap and effective.3. Baby carriers are unnecessary torture devices. I love the trusty canvas baby-carrier that has allowed me to get around San José without a car, hopping in and out of buses with the greatest of ease, striding over damaged and holey sidewalks that would derail a stroller. The carrier makes it easy to protect both parent and baby with a single umbrella, essential during the rainy season. However, I received many unfriendly stares and comments such as, “Poor thing. I suppose she’s used to that contraption” – this as my daughter was peacefully sleeping, or joyfully bouncing up and down.There’s a good reason for this. In Costa Rica, parents are used to simply carrying their babies in their arms. Imagine that! A good friend in the States told me a story about a fellow mom who’d left her car seat at home, or something, and couldn’t figure out how to get her baby along a sidewalk from point A to point B. My friend said, “In your arms, perhaps?” and was met with astonishment. Back in the US of A, we like to have equipment for everything, duly JPMA-certified and with an instruction manual the size of the Old Testament. In Costa Rica, this madness has simply not set in, partly for economic reasons (why on Earth is an Ergo so expensive, by the way?) and partly for cultural ones. That doesn’t mean I no longer get nervous watching a mother leap off of a rickety, steep bus staircase onto a crumbling curb while rocking mile-high stilettos, all with a week-old baby cradled in the crook of her arm. I think there’s a happy medium to be sought here – see item number 5.4. Get over yourself with your organic quinoa baby food and five-point high-chair harnesses. When I was preparing for motherhood, I was reading the same articles and scouring the same websites as any U.S. mother, but in a country with nowhere near the same range of products to buy. I worried that I wasn’t going to be able to buy my baby the right things, that she’d be unsafe and filled with chemicals and so on and so forth. The Costa Rican side of the family tended to greet my concerns with calm, compassionate smiles and not much else. I came to realize what was behind those smiles – the knowledge that babies really don’t require as much stuff, or information, as overly-connected new moms tend to seek out. I’m not knocking organic food or quinoa or five-point harnesses. I’m knocking the level of stress that, from what I can see, surrounds so much of U.S. babyhood, at least for people with the time and economic means for such things. (A recent New York Times article even described the way that some people are choosing not to have kids just because they want to avoid the materialism that goes along with it.)That said…5. Every culture gets silly about babies in its own way. This is the most important thing I’ve learned, and it’s why I believe any parent, from any country, would benefit from living or traveling abroad. It might sound trite to say that there’s no correct way to raise a child, but receiving parenting advice from more than one culture really drives that home. Costa Ricans go overboard wrapping their babies in wool on sweltering days, just as estadounidenses are obsessed with having a specific piece of baby equipment for every single conceivable occasion. A Costa Rican mother might run around town with her baby in her arms, while a Gringa might be more relaxed about letting her baby play in the dirt. It’s all summed up by the common phrase cada loco con su tema: every nut has his own pet subject. It’s especially true for parents, who are crazy with love.I think the answer is to learn from each other’s oddities and obsessions: the Tica mother taking off that extra sweater, the Gringa carrying her baby to her neighbor’s in her arms. The answer is to remember that the reason we’re so nuts is that we want our kids to be okay. The answer is to teach each other the one thing that almost any parent needs to learn, and learn, and learn again: that really, all of us are making it up as we go along.Happy Mother’s Day.Read previous Maeology columns here.Katherine Stanley Obando is The Tico Times’ arts and entertainment editor.
