West Fraser misses first quarter analyst expectations as earnings plunge

VANCOUVER — West Fraser Timber Co. Ltd. says earnings dropped significantly in the last quarter as the company felt the impact of lower production and demand.The company says it lost $5 million or seven cents per share in the quarter ending March 31, compared with earnings of $197 million or $2.53 per share for the same period last year.Adjusted earnings were $22 million or 32 cents per share for the quarter, compared with $229 million or $2.96 a share for the first quarter last year.Analysts had expected adjusted earnings $36.3 million or 56 cents per share according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.The company says earnings were hit by lower demand in the key spruce-pine-fir sector as U.S. housing starts lagged because of wet weather across major construction markets.B.C. producers including West Fraser have announced several rounds of production curtailments as they grapple with limited wood fibre supply in the province and depressed demand.

Security Council extends UN oilforfood programme until 4 December

The Security Council this evening unanimously adopted a resolution extending until 4 December the United Nations oil-for-food programme, which began operations in 1996 and remains a temporary measure to provide for the civilian needs of the Iraqi people until Baghdad meets its international obligations.Under the scheme, Iraq is allowed to use 72 per cent of its oil revenues to purchase humanitarian relief. Of the remainder, 25 per cent goes to the Compensation Fund for war reparation payments, while 2.2 per cent covers UN costs for administering the programme and 0.8 per cent is allocated to the weapons inspection operations. To date, some $25 billion worth humanitarian supplies and equipment have been delivered to Iraq under the programme, including $1.5 billion worth of oil industry spare parts and equipment. An additional $10 billion worth of supplies are currently in the production and delivery pipeline. read more

NHL Lockout Games Through November Canceled

The NHL canceled regular-season games through November, as the labor dispute between the league and the players’ association get nowhereThe league canceled games through Nov. 1 last week following a dispiriting proposal-swapping session between the NHL and NHLPA in Toronto. With no progress made since, the league was forced to wipe out another significant block of the regular-season schedule.A lack of meaningful dialogue between the warring factions means that the league’s marquee event, the Winter Classic, is in jeopardy as well.The annual outdoor game may be canceled as early as next week, a source with knowledge of the league’s plans told ESPNNewYork.com.Commissioner Gary Bettman said a decision on the Winter Classic was needed “very soon” when reached Wednesday at a press conference announcing the Islanders move to Brooklyn.“I’m not going to give you an exact timetable, but at some point in November,” he said. “We will have to commit many millions of dollars to get ready for the Winter Classic, so if there’s still uncertainty, we’re going to have to make a decision and my guess is, we’re not going to commit those dollars unless we have certainty.”Bettman also indicated Wednesday that the negotiation process — one that has been stagnant without any formal meetings over the past week — was likely to get “more difficult” moving forward.The league is following through with that promise Friday, when it is expected to not only cancel games but also inform the NHLPA that its last offer is now off the table.The offer — which included a 50-50 revenue split and provision to “make whole” existing player contracts by using deferred payments — was contingent on playing an 82-game season, deputy commissioner Bill Daly told ESPN.com. With no chance of salvaging a full season, the offer has been rescinded.The NHLPA has not made any additional offer since its trio of proposals was promptly rejected by the league last week. The union has attempted to stoke negotiations by offering to meet, but the league has spurned those invitations. read more

Une simulation de mission martienne sur lISS

first_imgUne simulation de mission martienne sur l’ISS ?La Russie, la NASA et l’Agence spatiale européenne (ESA) songent à réaliser une mission martienne simulée sur la Station spatiale internationale (ISS). Une expérience similaire à celle de Mars 500. En novembre dernier, s’est achevée une expérience unique en son genre : Mars 500. D’une durée de plus d’un an et demi, celle-ci visait à simuler une mission aller retour vers la planète Mars et de tester les effets potentiels qu’elle pourrait avoir sur les astronautes. Au final, l’expérience s’est révélée être une véritable réussite et a fourni une grande quantité de données. À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESAC’est probablement ce qui motive aujourd’hui l’agence spatiale russe, la NASA et l’Agence spatiale européenne à envisager d’organiser une telle mission sur la Station spatiale internationale (ISS), comme l’a annoncé Vladimir Popovkine, directeur de Roskosmos. “Mars-500 était une bonne expérience qui a permis d’étudier la psychologie humaine. Nous envisageons de réitérer cette expérience dans l’espace. Nous menons des consultations en ce sens avec la NASA et l’ESA”, a t-il indiqué à la radio Echo à Moscou.Comme la première expérience, celle-ci pourrait alors viser à tester l’influence du confinement sur le sommeil, le moral, l’immunité et le système hormonal de l’organisme humain dans un cadre encore plus proche d’une situation réelle. Lors de Mars 500, les membres de l’équipage – les Russes Alexeï Sitev, Soukhrob Kamolov et Alexandre Smoleïevski, le Français Romain Charles, le Chinois Wang Yue et l’Italien Diego Urbina, ont réalisé environ 200 expériences scientifiques.

Les 8 actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 4 avril

first_imgLes 8 actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 4 avrilUn appel aux donneurs de sang, un pirate retrouvé 300 ans après et une bonne nouvelle pour les éléphants, voici votre concentré d’actualités scientifiques pour ce 4 avril. – Après plusieurs semaines de suspense, la station spatiale chinoise Tiangong-1 est finalement revenue sur Terre. Elle a pénétré dans l’atmosphère le 2 avril à 00H15 GMT et s’est désintégrée en “grande majorité”. Si l’autorité spatiale chinoise ne l’a pas précisé, des fragments ont probablement survécu à cette rentrée. Ils auraient toutefois terminé leur course dans l’océan Pacifique au large de Hawaï.  – Il y a 49 millions d’années, un varan très particulier évoluait à la surface de la Terre. Appelé Saniwa ensidens, l’animal possédait quatre yeux, si l’on en croit la récente étude de ses fossiles. Les deux yeux classiques plus deux autres situés au sommet de sa tête. D’après les chercheurs, c’est la première fois qu’on identifie un vertébré doté d’une mâchoire afficher une telle particularité.  – Donneurs de sang, on a besoin de vous ! L’Etablissement français du sang (EFS) vient de lancer un appel d’urgence pour reconstituer les stocks d’ici le mois de mai afin d’assurer les besoins en transfusion des malades. A l’approche des vacances scolaires et des jours fériés, l’EFS s’attend en effet à voir baisser ses réserves de sang et appelle tous les volontaires à venir donner leur sang dès maintenant.- Des chercheurs pensent avoir retrouvé les restes d’un des pirates les plus célèbres de l’histoire : le capitaine “Black Sam” Bellamy. L’homme s’est illustré au 18e siècle en capturant avec son équipage plus de 50 navires avant de périr dans le naufrage de son bateau. C’est dans cette épave enterrée près de Cap Code dans le Massachusetts qu’un os pouvant appartenir au pirate a été identifié. Une analyse ADN doit encore être menée pour le confirmer.- Que se passerait-il si une bombe nucléaire tombait sur votre ville ? Un simulateur disponible en ligne dévoile un aperçu de l’étendue des dégâts et du nombre de victimes. La carte interactive a été conçue par l’organisation The Outrider Foundation dans le but de sensibiliser aux menaces qui pèsent sur l’humanité.   À lire aussiLapins, planète et réchauffement climatique, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 21 août- Le Royaume-Uni se lance dans la lutte contre le trafic d’ivoire. Le gouvernement britannique a décidé de renforcer son interdiction du commerce de ce matériau, en l’étendant à la plupart des objets en ivoire quel que soit leur âge. Si quelques exceptions seront autorisées, ce sera l’une des réglementations les plus strictes au monde concernant l’ivoire. Une bonne nouvelle pour les éléphants dont le braconnage a grandement diminué les effectifs.- Le télescope Hubble vient de battre un nouveau record. Il a réussi à capturer l’étoile la plus éloignée jamais vue. Icare, c’est son nom, est située à 9 milliards d’années-lumière de la Terre. La supergéante bleue a pu être observée grâce à un procédé nommé “lentille gravitationnelle” qui permet de rendre visibles des objets normalement trop lointains. – Envie de renforcer votre système immunitaire ? Alors enfourchez votre vélo. Selon une nouvelle étude, il permettrait en effet de protéger notre immunité. Des chercheurs ont constaté que des cyclistes âgés de 75 ans, et ayant fait du vélo pendant une grande partie de leur vie, avaient un profil immunitaire similaire à celui de personnes âgées de 20 ans.

first_img , Firefighter hospitalized after getting electrocuted while battling Barrio Logan fire May 11, 2018 Posted: May 11, 2018center_img Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A firefighter was recovering Friday from injuries he suffered when he came into contact with an electrified fence while battling a late-night blaze in Barrio Logan.The fire erupted for unknown reasons about 10 p.m. Thursday at an abandoned building on National Avenue, near 27th Street, San Diego Fire-Rescue Department spokeswoman Monica Munoz said. Nobody was inside the structure at the time, she said.While working at the site of the blaze, an SDFRD crew member touched a chain-link fence at the back of the property that had become electrified due to its close proximity to a power box, Munoz said.Medics took the victim, whose name was not released, to a hospital for treatment of electric shock-related injuries of undisclosed severity. He was released from medical care this morning, the spokeswoman said.Investigators were unable to determine what sparked the fire, which caused an estimated $75,000 worth of damage to the structure and destroyed about $5,000 worth of contents. last_img read more

Users can add a special donation sticker to their stories, and choose from any of the U.S. nonprofits that is already part of the Facebook fundraising platform. Get ready for Instagram influencers to peddle more stuff to you: Facebook is set to announce at its f8 developer conference in San Jose, Calif. Tuesday that Instagram is rolling out a feature called shopping from creators next week. The new feature will allow creators to tag products in their photos, and make them instantly shoppable. The feature is effectively an extension of Instagram’s existing shopping platform, which until now only allowed brands to sell their products directly through their posts. Now, creators who advertise products for brands can also tap into the shopping platform, and for instance make the clothes they wear, or the jewelry they sport, shoppable.Shopping from creators is being launched as a limited test with a few dozen creators for now. These include Instagram influencers like Aimee Song, Gigi Hadid, Kathleen Lights and Yovanna Ventura as well as crossover stars like Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian. Also part of the initial round are a few media brands, including GQ, Refinery29, HypeBeast and Vogue, as well as the not really Insta-famous Warby Parker CEO Neil Blumenthal. Participating nonprofits include GLAAD, the Nature Conservancy, Black Girls Code and many others. (An organization may have joined the platform to collect donations on its Facebook page, for instance.) Users who view any of those donation requests can donate right from within Instagram, and anyone running a campaign will get access to the total amount raised once their Story expires.Finally, Facebook also announced a new camera interface for Instagram, which will launch in the coming weeks. The new interface features a way to easily switch back and forth between photo and live video capture, as well as a new post type: The new create mode will make it easier to put together text posts, quizzes and everything else that doesn’t require a photo or video to share.

Windows 10 version 1803 is businessready according to Microsoft

first_imgWindows 10 version 1803 is business-ready according to Microsoft by Martin Brinkmann on June 15, 2018 in Windows – 18 commentsMicrosoft declared Windows 10 version 1803, the April 2018 Update, business-ready by moving it to the semi-annual channel. The semi-annual channel, previously known as Current Branch for Business, is a special update channel of professional and Enterprise versions of Windows 10.Feature updates may be delayed in those editions of Windows 10 by switching from the consumer-targeting semi-annual targeted channel to the semi-annual channel.Devices on the semi-annual channel get feature updates months after general availability at the earliest. Microsoft mentioned previously that the switch happens about 4 months after general availability of feature updates usually but the April 2018 Update switch happened earlier.Microsoft released Windows 10 version 1803 on April 30 on its website and through Windows Update which means that the company unlocked the new version of Windows for semi-annual channel distribution less than 3 months after general availability.Microsoft revealed in a new blog post why it flipped the switch early. The company used AI and machine learning to distribute the feature update to “the best target devices based on [..] extensive listening systems”.Windows 10 is reaching 700 million monthly active devices and nearly 250 million are updated to the April 2018 Update already according to Microsoft data. The company states in the publication that devices on the April 2018 Update have a 20% reduction in system stability issues, and operating system and driver stability issues.General availability of Windows 10 version 1803 means that the new version is offered to all devices that are on the Semi-Annual Targeted channel and to all devices on the Semi-Annual channel.Devices on the semi-annual channel can be configured to delay new feature updates by up to 364 days; this is done in the Settings application under Update & Security > Windows Update > Advanced options.Admins and users who don’t want to install Windows 10 version 1803 yet on their devices need to switch to the semi-annual channel and set a delay for the installation of the new feature update.Patch Lady Susan Bradley thinks it is too early for release in business environments because of outstanding issues and the release of at least two patches per month for the new version of Windows 10. Our all the issues with Windows 10 version 1803 post released shortly after the release of windows 10 version 1803 is one of the most popular articles ever on the site, and many of the issues described there have not been addressed yet.If you plan to update to the new version right now you should make sure that you have a system backup in place so that you can restore the previous version without relying on Windows’ functionality to do so.Now You: Is Windows 10 version 1803 ready?SummaryArticle NameWindows 10 version 1803 is business-ready according to MicrosoftDescriptionMicrosoft declared Windows 10 version 1803, the April 2018 Update, business-ready by moving it to the semi-annual channel.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Microsoft reveals InPrivate Desktop sandbox feature for Windows 10

first_imgMicrosoft reveals InPrivate Desktop sandbox feature for Windows 10 by Martin Brinkmann on August 08, 2018 in Windows – Last Update: August 08, 2018 – 9 commentsMicrosoft revealed a feature that it calls InPrivate Desktop last week on the Windows 10 Insider Feedback Hub before it pulled the quest quickly again.Bleeping Computer was fast enough to grab a screenshot of the quest and collect the information that Microsoft provided.The description indicates that the feature is for Windows 10 Enterprise at this point in time. It would not be the first that is Enterprise-exclusive but it has happened in the past that Enterprise-only features were introduced at least in professional versions of Windows 10 such as Pro as well at a later point in time.The quest had the following description:InPrivate Desktop (Preview) provides admins a way to launch a throwaway sandbox for secure, one-time execution of untrusted software. This is basically an in-box, speedy VM that is recycled when you close the app!Microsoft published prerequisites and installation steps as well. The feature requires a Windows 10 Enterprise installation, at least build 17718, Hypervisor capabilities enabled in the BIOS, at least 4 Gigabytes of RAM and 5 Gigabytes of disk space, and a processor with at least two cores.InPrivate Desktop allows administrators to run untrusted executable programs in a sandbox so that the underlying system cannot be affected in any way by the execution. Similarly to what third-party programs such as Sandboxie offer but integrated natively in Windows 10.Admins can make use of virtualization to test untrusted executable files but that requires more storage space and resources.The quest was live for just a brief moment before it was pulled by Microsoft again. It is possible that it was published in error by Microsoft at this point in time.The quest pointed to the InPrivate Desktop application but Bleeping Computer could not install the application because it had other requirements (Azure Active Directory) and blocked access because of that.Closing WordsThe integration of a quick and easy way to test software in a sandbox environment could certainly help improve overall security. It is a pity that Microsoft seems to target Windows 10 Enterprise exclusively with the feature as it would certainly help non-Enterprise customers of the company as well test and run software programs in a secure environment.Now You: What is your take on InPrivate Desktop?SummaryArticle NameMicrosoft reveals InPrivate Desktop sandbox feature for Windows 10DescriptionMicrosoft revealed a feature that it calls InPrivate Desktop today on the Windows 10 Insider Feedback Hub before it pulled the quest again.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

CAMBRIDGE NY – When voters in Cambridge New Yo

first_img CAMBRIDGE, N.Y. – When voters in Cambridge, New York, decided the town school was due for a renovation, science teacher Steve Butz knew there was one piece of the 1950 building that deserved to be preserved: the door to the principal’s office.The plain door once served as a model for one of Norman Rockwell’s iconic paintings, “Girl With Black Eye,” also known as “The Shiner” and “Triumph in Defeat.”“Holy cow!” Butz recalled thinking when he learned the school intended to discard the door as part of the $11 million rehabilitation. “We should save it.”In 1953, Rockwell drove the short distance from his studio in Arlington, Vermont, to Cambridge, a village among rolling farmland 35 miles northeast of Albany.Rockwell often used local residents and locales for settings in his work for The Saturday Evening Post. In Cambridge, he found inspiration for his depiction of a schoolgirl awaiting her turn in the principal’s office after getting into a fight.Rockwell took photographs of the principal’s office and the door as well as the principal and his secretary. He even had the door taken off its hinges and brought to his studio. Later at his studio, he photographed models standing in for the principal and secretary.His studio photo shoots also included Mary Whalen Leonard, then 11, who wound up serving as the model for the feisty, plaid skirt-wearing girl with the post-fight disheveled pigtails.Rockwell, who later moved to the Berkshires in Massachusetts, was “like a movie director,” said Stephanie Plunkett, deputy director and chief curator of the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.“He would tell his models how he wanted them to pose, what expressions he wanted,” she said. “Sometimes he would even act out the scene.”The resulting artwork for “The Shiner” appeared on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post’s May 23, 1953, edition. The original oil painting is part of the collection of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum in Hartford, Connecticut.Leonard, whose father was Rockwell’s lawyer, had already posed for one of the artist’s Saturday Evening Post covers when he asked her to do another.“He said, ‘Wouldn’t you just love to win a fight with one your brothers? That’s the kind of smile you have to have,’” Leonard, now 75, said Thursday. “So he just pulled that smile out of me that day.”The renovation of the building that now houses the Cambridge elementary and high schools called for reconfiguring elementary principal Colleen Lester’s office and replacing the famous door. Butz received approval to preserve the door as part of an exhibit on the school’s key role in one of Rockwell’s most famous works.The door has been placed in a glass display case near the school’s library since November, accompanied by some of Rockwell’s black-and-white reference photos and a framed copy of the Saturday Evening Post cover.Students think it’s “cool” that a piece of local lore with national appeal has been preserved and put on display in their school, Butz said. The door is serving as a teaching tool for art students learning how artists such as Rockwell approach their work, he said.“There was a whole process” the illustrator used, Butz said. “I never knew he took photos of everything.” Principal’s door from Rockwell’s iconic ‘Shiner’ preserved by The Associated Press Posted Dec 28, 2017 7:19 am PDT Last Updated Dec 28, 2017 at 10:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more
