But a Rolls-Royce spokesman said the company would provide another update today.EASA said early findings showed that an oil fire in part of the engine might be to blame.

Email Address Regions: LATAM Colombia AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Colombia’s Ministry of Health has approved a plan to allow casinos and bingo halls in the jurisdiction to begin reopening in line with strict health and safety measures.It follows the Ministry approving a pilot programme in July, which gave local municipalities the power to approve venues for reopening. When that was announced, the biosecurity protocols for casinos and bingo halls had not yet been approved.Under the greenlit plans, physical barriers must be used to separate players at slot machines, with all devices to be disinfected after use. The consumption of food and alcoholic beverages will also be prohibited.This may see some of the nation’s 2,765 gaming venues begin to reopen across 417 municipalities. Industry association Fecoljuegos claims that the government has missed out on tax revenue amounting to COP225bn(£46m/$60.1m/€51.2m), as a result of the closures from March this year. These funds would ordinarily contribute towards Colombia’s public healthcare system.President of Fecoljuegos, Evert Montero Cárdenas said: “With the resolution, the mayors of all the municipalities of the country no longer have anything blocking them from implementating of the pilot plans authorized by the national government as soon as possible.”“[Colombia’s] casinos and bingo halls are committed to the health and well-being of Colombians. That is why we care about adapting our spaces with sufficient guarantees that provide security and confidence to our collaborators, clients and their families”.Since the shutdown of its land-based venues, Colombia’s regulator has taken a larger proportion of its gaming market online, passing regulation to allow several new game modes online, such as video bingo and live-dealer casino.However, with some 240,000 families in the nation relying on the land based gaming sector for their income, calls to reopen retail venues have been growing louder in recent months.

Climate Change Conference (COP 25) in Madrid, Spain, on Dec. 11, 2019. Photo: Susana Vera/Reuters[Episcopal News Service] The United Nations Climate Change Conference known as COP 25 went into overtime, running two days later than scheduled, but ended on Dec. 16 without taking the actions scientists say are necessary to avoid a catastrophic future. The United States and other wealthy, high-emitting countries refused to implement carbon pricing or address the losses and damages that smaller, poorer states are suffering.But while political leaders fell short of those goals, the delegation from The Episcopal Church and its interfaith allies showed the international community at COP 25 (the 25th Conference of the Parties) in Madrid, Spain, that the church remains committed to a swift and just transition away from fossil fuels and will continue pressing those in power to act.“COP 25, meant by the [United Nations] to be a ‘COP of action,’ turned out to be a ‘COP of inaction’ … in the sense of protracted disagreement on many of the major issues related to carbon markets and how to reduce carbon emissions authentically and honestly,” said Lynnaia Main, The Episcopal Church’s representative to the U.N.The conference had been seen by many as the last chance to amend current insufficient emissions commitments to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, beyond which humanity runs the risk of inflicting “increasingly severe and expensive impacts” on itself, according to the U.N.But with crucial action points in the implementation of the 2015 Paris accord delayed until next year’s COP, “the point of no return is no longer over the horizon,” U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres warned as the conference drew to a close. “It is in sight and hurtling towards us.”“This is the biggest disconnect between this process and what’s going on in the real world that I’ve seen,” Alden Meyer, the director of strategy and policy for the Union of Concerned Scientists who has been attending climate talks since 1991, told The Washington Post. “You have the science crystal [clear] on where we need to go. … It’s like we’re in a sealed vacuum chamber in here, and no one is perceiving what is happening out there — what the science says and what people are demanding.”And what the science says is so dire it demands an urgent response, Main told Episcopal News Service.“One stunning statistic I heard from [ex-U.N. Secretary-General] Ban Ki-Moon’s former speechwriter on the subject was that the decisions we make over the next 30 years will determine the outcome for the next 10,000 years,” Main said.Despite the political inaction, the delegation representing Presiding Bishop Michael Curry offered a unique perspective at the conference, grounded in The Episcopal Church’s commitment to social justice and creation care — a perspective that is increasingly valued at these summits.“We heard time and again, from U.N. officials and from other faith-based partners, that increasingly there is a recognition that climate change is a symptom not just of what is happening to the physical world, but of overconsumption, selfishness and apathy,” Main said. “U.N. officials are increasingly recognizing that at least part of the solution lies with faith leaders who can mobilize their communities through the teachings and actions required to generate this change.”The delegation made a powerful impression, Main said, through its activities during the two-week summit, which included partnering with other faith groups for discussions and prayer services, hosting a booth to educate attendees about the links between climate justice and faith, and meeting with negotiators.“The fact that The Episcopal Church shows up at a U.N. meeting speaks volumes to member state governments and U.N. officials; it shows that we care enough about the issue to physically show up in another country, for a long protracted period, and to invest resources and people in active participation,” she told ENS.The delegation also educated national leaders and other representatives about how The Episcopal Church is setting an example by supporting the goals of the Paris agreement, reducing its carbon footprint, supporting indigenous peoples like the Gwich’in in their fight against oil and gas development on sensitive lands, coordinating the Creation Care Pledge, funding advocacy and mitigation work and much more.In order to convince governments to act, it’s important to show that the church as an institution and Episcopalians as individuals are committed, Main said, “As we look ahead to COP 26 in Glasgow next November, we must ask ourselves how we, as faith-based actors, will undertake the self-examination and self-reform that this era requires of us. Jesus calls us to love our neighbor as ourselves. We cannot push our governments to do better, to do more, unless we too are demonstrating that we are still in.”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Hayward, Calif. — Hundreds of people, the vast majority opposed to Alameda County Sheriff Gregory Ahern’s policies on undocumented immigrants, packed a town hall meeting here on June 30 at which the sheriff was the featured speaker. Held at the Hayward Adult School, far from Bay Area city centers, the event was organized by People Power-Alameda County, a community action group of the American Civil Liberties Union.ACLU senior attorney Julia Mass spoke briefly, followed by Ahern, whose 20-minute PowerPoint presentation was frequently interrupted by jeers, as people held up signs saying #NotMySheriff.Mass challenged the sheriff’s assertion that he was required to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. She pointed out that San Francisco and Santa Clara counties don’t inform ICE as to the documentation status of their inmates. “All the federal statutes say is that an office or entity can’t prevent other people from voluntarily providing notice about citizenship and immigrant status,” she said, adding, “Nowhere in it does it say that the sheriff’s office has to tell ICE when people are being released.”Ahern’s response was very revealing. He said he had to cooperate or he could lose his federal grants. Ahern has received significant federal money for his pet Urban Shield weapons and militarization training program, and recently for a major expansion of his Santa Rita jail facility. These projects have been heavily criticized and protested against by activists in the Bay Area.In response to charges that he reports people to ICE before they’ve even been convicted of anything — violating the principle of “innocent until proven guilty” — Ahern came back with this Trump-style statement: “I believe that people who are ‘evil’ and committing violent crimes should go before a deportation hearing.” He even talked about possible crimes people may have committed in their native countries, ignoring the fact that many immigrants come here as refugees from persecution by violent governments installed by the U.S. as part of imperialism’s drive to control all of Latin America.More than 100 people lined up at the mic to speak and most lambasted the sheriff over his immigration policies. One quoted from a meeting on April 20, 2016, at which Ahern stated he could tell who is “suspicious” and who is undocumented based on their “clothing, luggage and language” — in other words, racial profiling.Another brought up an incident in May when Ahern’s deputies profiled and criminalized a street fruit vendor in San Lorenzo. A sergeant named Kelly was quoted as saying, “If you don’t enforce this type of selling, it will begin to look like a Third World fruit market.”It was also pointed out that Ahern, in his role as chair of the California Sheriff’s Association Political Action Committee, endorsed arch-racist Jeff Sessions’ nomination for U.S. attorney general.Ahern stated several times that he would continue to invite ICE into the Santa Rita jail and share prisoner release dates with the agency.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The TCU Office of Financial Aid puts the average for TCU students’ book and supplies at $970.This can often leave first-year students asking how to get the best deals and when to buy textbooks. Well, we’ve rounded up some options to answer that very question.Dr. Kassia Waggoner, a professor of English and Women and Gender studies, recommends students buy or rent their textbooks as early in the semester as they can.“I am a literature and composition professor, so I can tell you that in my classes, it is essential to buy or rent the books right away,” said Waggoner.However, she does suggest waiting until you see the syllabus for some classes.“Some classes may not depend on the book as much, so I recommend waiting until after you see the syllabus before buying a textbook,” she said. “If you see that reading quizzes are a part of your grade, that’s a sign that you should definitely buy or rent the textbook for the course.”As for where to get those books, here are some tips from upper-division students to be passed down:There are websites designed to compare textbook prices to find the cheapest price. These include: Textbooks.org, CheapestTextbooks.com, Booksprice.com and TextbookRentals.com Compare the differences of renting versus buying a textbook. If students rent from the TCU campus store they are still allowed to highlight in their books.Consider price, convenience, learning style and whether the class is a long-term major class or a one-time core class when trying to decide if the price tag is worth the book.Keep receipts and understand the exchange and return policy – if unsure, just ask.Don’t forget to resell books that are no longer needed. At the end of the semester several vendors come to campus to buy used books from students.If students don’t want to stop by the campus store, the College Investor compared the best college textbook rental sites as of 2016. The sites are rated on a scale of one to five textbooks — five textbooks being the best — based on the best prices, convenience, shipping methods, value-added services and fine rental policies.Amazon Textbook Rental: Campus Book Rentals: Chegg: eCampus: Half.ebay.com: Knetbooks: Valor Books: For more information on the book rentals options and reviews of their services, students can also check out the Consumer Affairs’ Textbook Rental Guide.Good luck book shopping Frogs!
