DENVER – Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is pressing ahead with a massive overhaul of his department, despite growing opposition to his proposal to move hundreds of public employees out of Washington and create a new organizational map that largely ignores state boundaries.Zinke wants to divide most of the department’s 70,000 employees and their responsibilities into 13 regions based on rivers and ecosystems, instead of the current map based mostly on state lines.The proposal would relocate many of the Interior Department’s top decision-makers from Washington to still-undisclosed cities in the West. The headquarters of some of its major bureaus also would move to the West.The concept — supported in principle by many Western politicians from both parties — is to get top officials closer to the natural resources and cultural sites they manage. The Interior Department oversees a vast expanse of public lands, mainly in the West, that are rich in wildlife, parks, archaeological and historic sites, oil and gas, coal and grazing ranges.It also oversees huge dams and reservoirs that are vital to some of the West’s largest cities and most productive agricultural land.Rep. Raul Grijalva of Arizona, the ranking Democrat on the House Committee on Natural Resources, suspects the plan is an attempt to undercut the department by pressuring senior employees to quit rather than relocating, leaving positions unfilled and creating confusion about who regulates what.“I think it’s a very thinly disguised attempt to gut the Department of Interior and its bureaus,” he said.Grijalva also questioned the value of moving more department employees West, saying more than 90 per cent are already in field offices outside Washington.Grijalva and Democratic Rep. Donald McEachin of Virginia, also a member of the Natural Resources Committee, on Wednesday accused Zinke of withholding key information from lawmakers and trying to implement the plan piecemeal while avoiding full scrutiny from Congress.Congress has the final say over the proposal.And a bipartisan group of Western governors complained to Zinke two weeks ago that he shut them out of the planning for the reorganization. The Republican-dominated Western Governors Association expressed concern that organizing the department around natural features instead of state lines would weaken their states’ influence on department decisions.Zinke’s spokeswoman, Heather Swift, said Wednesday that moving more Interior Department employees to the West has received overwhelming backing from Congress and state governments, and that managing by ecosystems, instead of state borders, has “a lot of support.”Six Republican members of the House Natural Resources Committee told Zinke last month they support the reorganization. They said it would improve agency efficiency and responsiveness.The Interior Department has been unusually tight-lipped about the plan and has not said how many of its Washington-based employees would be moved, where in the West they would land, when they would go, or how much the overhaul would cost.Swift said the department has briefed both Republican and Democratic congressional staffers and state officials on the proposal. She also said the department does not have a final plan.But the agency has already compiled a tentative map of the new regions, provided to The Associated Press by the Western Governors Association. And budget documents released Monday show the department is already taking steps to implement it.The department requested $17.5 million in 2019 to get the plan started and to move an undisclosed number of employees from their Washington headquarters to the West.The budget documents included only a broad outline of the proposal and did not address in detail how it would affect the department’s basic responsibility — managing natural resources.In an email to the AP on Wednesday, Swift said boundaries based on rivers and ecosystems would allow resource managers to do a better job and co-ordinate more closely because nature doesn’t follow political boundaries. She used a deer herd as an example.“In just one season alone, the herd might pass through a national park, state land, a wildlife refuge and private land — and along its migration, it could wander through two or three different states,” she said.Zinke has compared his proposed regional boundaries to the ideas of John Wesley Powell, a famed one-armed Civil War veteran and Grand Canyon explorer. Powell argued — unsuccessfully — that Western state boundaries should be drawn along river systems, not arbitrary survey lines, because of the importance of water in the largely arid region.Donald Worster, an environmental historian and author of “A River Running West: The Life of John Wesley Powell,” said Zinke’s plan bears only a faint resemblance to Powell’s.“Powell had a very clear definition of the ‘problem’ his map was supposed to fix,” Worster said in an email to the AP. “Zinke is far less clear.”Zinke’s tentative map lumps together some very different areas and divides others that have features in common, Worster said. Zinke also treats river systems and ecosystems as the same things, but they are not, he said.“His patched-together and conceptually muddled maps do not encourage one to hope that real science will be given more visibility and authority in the (Interior Department),” Worster said.Lynne Scarlett, who was deputy secretary of interior under President George W. Bush, said the reorganization could cut both ways.Focusing on large, regional ecosystems could help the department pay more attention to the connections among land, water, wildlife and people, said Scarlett, now a policy executive for The Nature Conservancy. But the department’s bureaus have different and very specialized responsibilities, and it’s important to preserve their individual missions, she said.“There’s no perfect management solution. Every solution that one thinks about involves trade-offs,” she said.___This story has been corrected to show Rep.

NEW DELHI – India and Iran said Saturday that they would step up co-operation in combatting extremism, terrorism and drug trafficking in Afghanistan in an effort to restore peace and stability to the war-wracked country.Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the two countries would also make efforts to improve energy security and regional connectivity to reach landlocked Afghanistan and Central Asia by developing Iran’s Chabahar Port and road and rail routes.“We both will work for restoring peace, stability, prosperity and a pluralistic system in Afghanistan,” Modi said after holding talks with Rouhani in New Delhi on the final day of Rouhani’s three-day visit.Rouhani said Iran and India “are prepared for joint ventures in gas and petroleum sectors.” He sought India’s investment in these areas, as well as in the industrial and mining sectors.He said Afghanistan must be “a vivacious and secure country,” adding that Iran and India would also co-operate in dealing with the situations in Iraq, Syria and Yemen. Iran is a key stakeholder in the future of those nations.Rouhani’s visit to India came at a time when President Donald Trump has threatened to scuttle an international deal reached with Iran in 2015 over its nuclear program that ended economic sanctions imposed on the country.The uncertainty puts India in a difficult position with its growing ties with the United States.Rouhani referred to Trump’s threat on the nuclear deal, and said that “politics without adhering to one’s commitment and promises cannot resolve the conflicts and problems of the current world.”He also accused the United States of intervening in the internal affairs of countries in the Middle East.“Why did they (U.S.) invade Iraq? Why are they in Syria now? Why have they occupied a part of Syria now?” Rouhani asked while giving a speech at the Observer Research Foundation, an Indian think-tank.“We know that selling arms is a very profitable business,” he said. “We are aware that the factories that produce arms need customers.”India and Iran signed agreements Saturday for avoidance of double taxation and implementing an extradition treaty signed in 2008. Another agreement envisaged the pooling of technical, scientific and human resources between the two countries.India will also help Iran in running a multipurpose container terminal at the Chabahar Port for 18 months as part of a lease agreement. India is helping Iran develop Chabahar Port on the Gulf of Oman for trade with Afghanistan and Central Asia, bypassing Pakistan, which has refused to provide New Delhi access through a land route.India committed up to $500 million for the development of Chabahar along with associated roads and rail lines.
Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday said “opposition parties offered biryani to terrorists” while the Modi government fed them bullets, and termed a rival candidate from the Saharanpur constituency “son-in-law of Azhar Masood”.Addressing a rally in Saharanpur, he said the “son-in-law of (Jaish-e-Mohammed chief) Azhar Masood” has entered the constituency and he speaks the language of the terror mastermind. Imran Masood is the Congress candidate from the constituency. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM'”You have to decide who wins from Saharanpur — a person who speaks the language of Azhar Masood or a soldier of Modiji,” he said, seeking votes for the BJP candidate from Saharanpur, Raghav Lakhanpal. Adityanath said Azhar would meet the same fate as Osama bin Laden. “You must have heard about Osama bin Laden. He was killed brutally. Azhar Masood will be killed in the same manner,” he said. The UP chief minister said the BJP is committed to nation building and will not allow “any traitor to dent India’s integrity”. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K”Some parties offered biryani to terrorists, while the Modi government has only one medicine for terrorists – bullets and bombs,” he said. Taking a jibe at the SP-BSP alliance in the state, Adityanath said, “People who are contesting 37-38 seats are thinking of becoming prime minister.” Attacking Congress President Rahul Gandhi, he said, “You must have noticed that the Union finance minister had referred to an individual as ‘man without brains’. “Rahul Gandhi does not know Indian culture, so when he went to offer prayers at Kashi Vishwanath temple, he sat in a position as if he was offering namaaz.” Hitting out at Gandhi’s close aide Sam Pitroda, Adityanath said, “There is a ‘mahaguru’ in the Congress. He raises questions on the valour of our armed forces. When this is the condition of the ‘mahaguru’, you can imagine the condition of ‘mahachelas’.” Taking potshots at SP chief Akhilesh Yadav, Adityanath said, “When someone asked Akhilesh if Mulayam will be his leader, ‘my leader is Mayawati. I have already de-throned netaji’. Attacking rival parties, he said, “The presiding deity of the corrupt, the jewel of clan of goons and the torchbearer of ‘naamdaars’ want to plunder the resources of the country.”
By Kaatyaayani PandeyRabat – Bana Alabed, a seven year old Syrian girl from Aleppo, has penned a letter to US President Donald Trump imploring him to “do something for the children of Syria.”Bana currently resides in Turkey with her family after being displaced from her home in Aleppo last December. This letter was posted to Twitter by Bana on January 25, 2017 with the hashtag #LetterToTrumpFromBana and was retweeted over 4,000 times.My letter to @realdonaldtrump: I beg you, can you do something for the children of Syria? If you can, I will be your best friend. Thank you pic.twitter.com/rWmgDuBf6P— Bana Alabed (@AlabedBana) January 25, 2017In the letter she talks about how some of her friends were killed during the siege of Aleppo, calling it “the city of death.”She considers herself fortunate to have escaped the situation in Syria but does not fail to acknowledge that “millions of Syrian children are not like me and are suffering in different parts of Syria.”She even bargains with Trump by offering her friendship to him if he promises to work toward the amelioration of Syrian children. She writes, “If you promise you will do something for the children of Syria, I am already your new friend.”She ends the letter on a hopeful note by saying that she is looking forward to Trump’s potential policies regarding the children of Syria.On January 27 2017, Donald Trump signed an executive order temporarily halting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries into the United States and indefinitely halting immigration from Syria.The order has come under a lot of fire from within and outside the United States with the hashtag #MuslimBan trending on social media platforms. Bana defiantly posted the following tweet as a response to Trump’s #MuslimBanHi @realdonaldtrump my friend Gabriela just sent me this. Your #MuslimBan will not stop us from meeting. Bye pic.twitter.com/eUe1GzCdz8— Bana Alabed (@AlabedBana) January 28, 2017Bana is a self-proclaimed “peace preacher” and has been posting on Twitter about the crisis in Syria since 2016.
It’s the stuff nightmares are made of.Spiderwebs have taken over the town of Aitoliko in Greece draping everything from street signs to trees.Hot weather is creating the perfect conditions for the spiders’ favourite food: gnats, who thrive in hot, humid conditions.The small mosquito-like insects have a lifespan of just two or three days.Neither the spiders or the gnats are dangerous to humans but it’s a spooky sight for residents.
Earlier this month, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata told a crowd at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, “The value of games does not matter to them. The fact is, what we produce is value, and we should protect it.” Iwata was clearly taking a shot at Angry Birds and like-minded casual titles that have helped elevate platforms like Android and the iPhone into portable gaming machines. A number of folks immediately took Iwata to task for his comments, most notably industry analyst Michael Pachter, who told the press, “Long-term, Nintendo is doomed. He’s under full frontal assault by Apple.”Peter Vesterbacka, the marketing head for Angry Birds creator Rovio (who, let’s face it, has never been particularly afraid to speak his mind), took a shot against console gaming in general at South by Southwest this week, stating that the industry is “dying” thanks to the rise of simpler games like Angry Birds. Vesterbacka added that larger developers with larger budgets aren’t capable of being as nimble or innovative as smaller upstart developers like Rovio. Come on kids, words can only get you so far. Time to break out the slingshots. AdChoices广告
Publicité en ligne : nouvel accord entre MySpace et GoogleLe géant américain et le réseau social sont parvenus à un nouvel accord concernant la recherche et la publicité en ligne.C’est la fin de plusieurs mois d’incertitude quant à l’avenir du partenariat entre Google et MySpace. Leur nouvel accord a été annoncé hier. Selon lui, Google doit gérer en particulier la publicité liée aux mots-clés recherchés sur MySpace, explique Reuters. Cependant, les termes exacts de l’accord n’ont pas été rendus publics.À lire aussiSéisme, Google et chargeur, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 22 juinUn premier partenariat entre Google et MySpace avait été scellé en 2006 : Google garantissait 680 millions d’euros à News Corp, qui possède le réseau social, en échange du droit de vendre des espaces publicitaires correspondant aux recherches effectuées par les utilisateurs de MySpace.Concernant la publicité en ligne, News Corp avait déjà échangé avec Microsoft et Yahoo. MySpace ne cesse de perdre du terrain face aux réseaux sociaux concurrents, notamment Facebook, fondé en 2004 par Mark Zuckerberg, élu personnalité de l’année par le Time (voir notre article). Le site de News Corp a donc dû revoir sa stratégie et se présente aujourd’hui comme une plateforme de divertissement plus qu’un réseau social.En novembre, le directeur général de News Corp révélait que plusieurs options concernant MySpace étaient à l’étude. Sa vente n’est pas exclue.Le 17 décembre 2010 à 12:21 • Emmanuel Perrin
The Wonderful World of Pokemon GO1/10Pokemon GO is an augmented reality Pokemon game that uses your device’s location services and camera to bring the Pokemon universe to life.<><> Japanese McDonald’s are already pretty popular destinations for hungry locals. But they’re about to get a thousand times busier thanks to crazed Pokemon Go players.According to a “well-placed source,” every McDonald’s location in Japan will soon become a Pokestop or a Pokemon gym for Pokemon GO. That meshes with what earlier analysis of clues discovered in the game’s code suggested– so it’s all but guaranteed that Japanese Pokemon players will soon be swarming McDonald’s location for more than Giga Big Macs and McChoco Potatoes.All that needs to happen now is for Pokemon Go to actually launch in Japan. It hasn’t made its way back home yet because of concerns over server capacity. There’s certainly good reason for that. Niantic and Nintendo have already had to deal with outages elsewhere around the globe because of the game’s insane popularity. That can’t happen in Nintendo’s home country.They’ve got to get the home launch just right because of the financial implications. Nintendo’s market valuation actually surpassed Sony’s this week, and it’s all because of Pokemon Go. Nintendo shares shot up 25% when the game launched — and enjoyed a 50% increase when the game launched on US soil.Nintendo share prices aren’t the only ones shooting up, either. Some players are so obsessed with Pokemon Go that they’re willing to spend piles of money on more than Pokecoins. Those looking for an easy way to the top are paying hundreds of dollars on eBay for accounts that have already been leveled up.
Republican Dino Rossi waved signs with supporters in Vancouver on Monday, a day before the Nov. 2 election.Rossi is vying for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Democrat Patty Murray.He gathered with supporters at 7:30 a.m. on the Interstate 205 overpass near Mill Plain Boulevard. He told volunteers the “most important part is making sure everyone signs their ballot, gets a stamp on it and gets it in the mail,” said Erin Daly, a campaign spokeswoman. Rossi is scheduled in Puyallup at noon for a “Victory Rally.” The race between Rossi and incumbent Murray is expected to be among several races that will determine the balance of power in the Senate.

A decree by which Costa Rica’s government sought to resolve an ongoing dispute over a law to allow photocopying of books for academic purposes was not signed Wednesday as expected.Justice Minister Fernando Ferraro announced that the executive branch accepted a request from representatives of the movement “Photocopying to Study” – mostly university students – to study the decree before it is signed.Ferraro set a Friday deadline for groups to weigh in on the proposed decree.President Laura Chinchilla vetoed in September a bill that would have authorized the photocopying of books for educational purposes. The ban was approved by business chambers and publishers associations, but it generated discontent among thousands of students who protested against it last week in a march that ended in riots in front of the Legislative Assembly building. Damages to the assembly totaled $14,000. Facebook Comments

Top Stories An estimated 130,000 people have been killed in the war that began in early 2011, and as many as 8 million others have been forced from their homes, Kerry said. The number of refugees stands at about 2 million, he said.But even the tentative steps forward that were announced Monday carry high risks of being thwarted by militants.Lavrov noted that rebel insurgents attacked a recent government-sanctioned humanitarian aid convoy to the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk where there were fresh reports of illnesses and deaths among residents from hunger-related ailments this weekend.A U.N. official last week confirmed at least 15 people have died in Yarmouk in recent weeks, but residents say the real number is close to 50. The U.N.’s Relief and Works Agency that supports Palestinian refugees had until recently shipped food into the area, but has not been able to do so since September as the government tightened its blockade.The U.N. humanitarian chief said last month that an estimated 250,000 people in besieged communities in Syria were beyond the reach of aid. Both sides have resorted to blockades and the government has kept outside aid sharply limited. Key humanitarian routes are increasingly cut off by the fighting, and kidnappings of aid workers are on the rise U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are still pushing for a cease-fire in local pockets around the country and a prisoner exchange, which they said would help set the tone for compromise in the run-up to a peace conference scheduled for next week.Both men grimly conceded that a final settlement for both sides to build a new government would happen no time soon _ if ever.“But we must begin, and we must begin now,” Kerry told reporters in Paris. He said the process “will be difficult and will take some time.”Lavrov said, “We’re going to do everything in our power to initiate a process…. This is not going to be a one-time event.”The peace process has been beset in recent weeks by chaos within the Western-backed opposition group, known as the Syrian National Coalition, which is one of the only alliances of rebel fighters and political leaders willing to deal with Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government. The coalition is in exile, and has lost widespread credibility within its ranks and among rival opposition officials and rebel groups in Syria who have broken away and are fighting for the upper hand against al-Qaida-linked militants. Four benefits of having a wireless security system Lavrov also noted that an attempt to deliver aid from the International Committee of the Red Cross to hard-struck areas near Damascus was being planned.Kerry acknowledged what he described as an unacceptable uncertainty that insurgents and extremists have created in Syria as other nations try to nudge it toward peace.“We do not want a ceasefire which would be used by a terrorist group, because that would be against the interests of everyone,” Lavrov said.“And those terrorists greatly complicate this equation,” Kerry said. “And if disorder is allowed to continue to grow, it is extremists who will benefit, and it’s all the people who want a peaceful solution and stability who will lose.”He said the moderate opposition coalition has agreed to enforce a cease-fire in places they can control, including Aleppo, the country’s largest city, but suggested the militants would not abide by one.The Syrian National Coalition is deeply divided over whether to attend peace talks scheduled for Jan. 22 in Montreux, Switzerland, and will vote later this week to decide. The group’s president, Ahmad al-Jarba, met with Kerry on Monday for the second time in as many days as the United States made clear that the coalition must show up or suffer a severe credibility hit within the Western world. While Kerry and Lavrov said they agreed on several points, their nations remained at an impasse on whether Iran, Syria’s strongest ally, should attend next week’s talks.Kerry said he would welcome Iran’s participation _ but only if Tehran signs off on earlier diplomatic agreements that a transitional government in Syria would be created by mutual consent and, therefore, likely not include Assad or his close allies.Lavrov, however, said Iran should attend, adding that some other participants have rejected parts of the earlier agreement. He did not specify, but Assad’s government, which is sending a delegation, has said the president will not surrender power and may run again in elections later this year.The U.N., which is hosting the talks, has not yet invited Iran to attend, although a final decision had yet to be made.In Beirut, where he was visiting Monday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Zarif fueled the debate by saying he is “always ready to go” to help Syria find a way out of war.___Associated Press writers Zeina Karam and Bassem Mroue in Beirut contributed to this report.On Twitter: https://twitter.com/larajakesAPand https://twitter.com/lhinnant How men can have a healthy 2019 New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Sponsored Stories Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility (Copyright 2014 The Associated Press.

Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Since that early miss against his former team, Dawson has been perfect. Sunday, the game came down to his right foot, and the 42-year-old veteran blasted a 57-yard field goal through the uprights with one second left to give the Cardinals a 27-24 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars at University of Phoenix Stadium.The kick doesn’t fix all the ills in what has been a trying season for Dawson and the team, but it did provide a pretty big Band-Aid.It didn’t look like Dawson would get an opportunity to win it in regulation. After a Jacksonville punt, it looked like the game would be headed to overtime. The Cardinals had the ball at their own 39-yard line with no timeouts. Quarterback Blaine Gabbert hit Kerwynn Williams for 10 yards on a sideline rout on the first play.The Cardinals ran another pass play to the sidelines with a different running back, D.J. Foster, who made a great catch and got both feet down for a 12-yard gain that was upheld after video review.“That’s a situation we work a lot,” Dawson said. “There was really good communication on the sideline. Everybody knew exactly what the plan was. I believe on the last offensive play, there was 11 seconds left. That limits how deep your route can be. Top Stories 9 Comments Share “I’ve got to hand it to Blaine. He had to break the pocket a little bit and he had the awareness to get the ball out quick. Great catch on the sideline, and we were able to go out there and give it a rip.”A rip it was. Dawson’s game-winner was the longest of the 421 field goals he’s made in his career. But despite the distance of the attempt, Dawson was careful not to “over-kick” it.Phil Dawson’s 57 yard FG wins it for the Cardinals! Longest kick of his 19 year career.pic.twitter.com/ZG8zEJXYcg— NFL News (@NFLFBGAMETIME) November 27, 2017“I’ve had a few long attempts in my career before and a mistake I’ve made is to try to hop on it and hit it too hard, so I was really trying to focus on just hitting it smooth, get it online and trust the Arizona dome that the ball will track, and it did,” he said.Some of Dawson’s teammates chuckled at the fact that a 57-yard kick could be converted without much exertion.“It was smooth, alright,” Gabbert said with a smile.Dawson is well-versed in the wild swings in a kicker’s life. Make a game-winner and you’re a hero. Miss some attempts under 40 yards, and fans and media are calling for your job. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo GLENDALE, Ariz. — Just a few short weeks ago, Arizona Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson missed a 38-yard field goal on the game’s opening drive.The Cardinals would go on to beat the San Francisco 49ers, 20-10, with Dawson providing two other field goals and two extra points, but the trend of missed kicks was becoming disturbing.Dawson was brought to Arizona to cure an inconsistent kicking game, but he missed six kicks in the season’s first eight weeks — the same number he missed in his last two seasons in San Francisco.

He is willing to enjoy it.“I make it a habit not to evaluate a season in its entirety until it’s over, but today was sweet,” he said. – / 51 Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact
