US CBP Withdraws Proposed Changes to Jones Act

first_imgzoom US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has withdrawn the proposed modifications to the country’s Jones Act which regulates maritime commerce in US waters and between US ports.The changes, which were presented on January 18, 2017 by President Barack Obama’s administration, would have revoked waivers that helped oil and gas operators to stay in line with restrictions, Reuters cited US Customs and Border Protection’s data.CBP said that, based on the comments received on the matter, both supporting and opposing the proposed action, and CBP’s further research on the issue, “we conclude that the agency’s notice of proposed modification and revocation of the various ruling letters relating to the Jones Act should be reconsidered.”The agency added that the move, relating to customs application of Jones Act to the transportation of certain merchandise and equipment between coastwise points, came info effect on May 10.Following the announcement, the American Petroleum Institute (API) welcomed CBP’s action, describing the proposed modifications as “harmful new Jones Act rulings.” “A recent report projected that this proposal could have resulted in the loss of thousands of American jobs, reduced U.S. oil and natural gas production, and diminished revenues for federal and state government,” Erik Milito, API Upstream Director, said.“By rescinding the proposal, CBP has decided not to impose potentially serious limitations to the industry’s ability to safely, effectively, and economically operate,” Milito added.last_img read more

Faculty Renewal Challenge Requires Universities Governments Cooperate

first_img Maritime universities need to work with provincial and federalgovernments if the region is to successfully replenish theestimated 1,800 full-time faculty positions that will becomevacant over the next decade in the region, the Maritime ProvincesHigher Education Commission (MPHEC) announced today, Feb. 18. The vacancies come as the result of a wave of faculty retirementswhich are part of a nationwide demographic trend. Combined with ademand for new PhDs that exceeds supply, this situation iscreating a competitive hiring environment. The Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission (MPHEC)presented a document this week to the ministers of education ofthe Maritime provinces. Entitled Strategies for Faculty Renewalin the Maritimes, it outlines a series of strategies andrecommendations for universities and governments to prepare forthis “seller’s market.” “It is clear that the region must adapt quickly. Unfilledvacancies could threaten the very offering of programs andclasses,” said Sam Scully, commission member and chair of thecommittee that oversaw preparation of the document. “In theabsence of appropriate strategies to recruit and retain faculty,the Maritime provinces run the risk of being specificallyidentified by other jurisdictions as fertile ground from which torecruit faculty members.” “The key interventions presented in Strategies for FacultyRenewal in the Maritimes focus on three areas: expanding thecandidate pool, adapting recruitment practices, and developingmeasures to improve retention,” said commission CEO MireilleDuguay. “For example, measures to expand the candidate poolinclude increasing the number of suitable candidates through thedevelopment of new, multi-institution doctoral programs, and theprovision of additional support to PhD candidates and recentgraduates to facilitate their transition into faculty positions.” The document also recommends an overhaul of recruitment andretention policies and practices, including a review of salarystructures. For its part, the MPHEC has committed to preparing a progressreport in two years’ time; this report will include an update ofrelevant statistics and an account of regional developments andinitiatives. Maritime provincial governments and institutions areinvited to consider the recommendations and respond to thisdocument. “The potential impact of a do-nothing approach would likely reachbeyond the doors of the region’s institutions,” Ms. Duguay said.”Because the region’s universities have a significant impact onthe social and economic development, and are the primaryperformers of research and development in the region, any declinein the numbers and quality of Maritime university researchers andteachers would thus negatively impact the social and economicwell-being of the region as a whole.” Strategies for Faculty Renewal in the Maritimes is the outcome ofdiscussions among representatives of the region’s degree grantinginstitutions, faculty associations, graduate studentassociations, provincial governments, the Council of AtlanticPremiers, the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada,and federal government agencies during the MPHEC’s Symposium onFaculty Recruitment and Retention, held in Moncton in October2002. The Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission wasestablished in 1974. Its mission is to assist institutions andgovernments in enhancing the post-secondary learning environment.MPHEC’s 19 members are drawn from the Maritime provinces andrepresent higher education institutions, provincial governmentsand the general public.

Singer Tarek Al Arabi Tourgane Named Guest of Honor at Tangier…

By Chaimae BoulifaRabat – The eighth edition of Tangier Manga Expo for Japanese manga culture will host the Syrian singer Tarek Al Arabi Tourgane as its guest of honor.The composer and singer of majority of Japanese anime shows dubbed into Arabic will perform during the Manga Expo, according to Salim Gharroudi, the founder of the exposition and president of the association Dragon Tanger, which has organized the event. During the event, which will take place August 17 to 20, a variety of manga-related activities will be displayed through the different expo’s aisles.“I am participating in the anime song contest and I am going to have the honor to perform with the legend Tarek Al Arabi Tourgane,” Ayoub Marraha, a lover of Japanese culture and member of Dragon Tangier, told Morocco World News.“We grew up listening to Tarek’s voice in Spacestoon channel, and performing with him is a dream that is finally coming true.”This edition of the Tangier Manga Expo, under the theme of ‘Tangier and Kobe as twin cities’, aims to demonstrate “the resemblance between the two cities,” Gharouddi told MWN.“The Manga Expo is a space to gather the lovers of Japanese anime shows throughout Morocco, [and] to share their experiences and knowledge, since among us are painters, singers, handcrafters and speakers of Asian languages.”The event, which is open to the public, will feature a series of workshops for painting, Korean, Japanese and Arabic calligraphy, Japanese poetry, traditional Japanese dances, Manga quizzes, Karaoke, Japanese cosplay and singing competitions.Manga has recently gained popularity in Morocco, and a large number of Moroccans have turned into die-hard fans.“I was surprised by audience’s presence and the number of people coming from different cities in the first edition, and through the years we notice that there is a great increase of followers,” said Gharouddi.Marraha agreed. “In the past, few people were interested in anime Japanese shows, yet everything has changed recently and many individuals become engaged in this Japanese culture,” said the member.He declared that “this improvement is due to the role of associations like Tangier Dragon and social media [which] are contributing in spreading this phenomenon.” read more

Aluminum industry must think beyond cars for longterm growth says demographer

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Aluminum industry must think beyond cars for long-term growth, says demographer by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 3, 2014 3:29 pm MDT MONTREAL – A rapidly aging population means the aluminum industry needs to look beyond the high demand for lightweight cars if it wants to grow long into the future, a Canadian demographer said Tuesday.University of Toronto economics professor David Foot told an aluminum conference that spending patterns will shift as people age, potentially impacting the long-term demand for the metal.“When we get into our 60s and 70s, we drive our automobiles a little less, we fly a little less, so some of the current uses of aluminum which are great, are not going to be long-term growth prospects,” he said in an interview.The aluminum sector foresees “game changing” demand from planes, trains and automobiles, which are increasingly using the metal to lower the weight and improve fuel efficiency and environmental emissions.For instance, automaker giant Ford already plans on reducing the weight of its F-150 pickup truck by increasing the amount of aluminum used to 315 kilograms from 45 kilograms on current models.While Foot has no doubt about the short-term gains, he said companies operating in “older societies” like Canada need to focus on areas where spending will ultimately increase, such as pharmaceuticals.By 2036, almost one in four Canadians are projected to be over 65, compared to 14 per cent in 2011, according to Statistics-Canada.“I think businesses have become so short-term thinking in North America that demographics play no role,” said Foot, the author of Boom, Bust and Echo, which was first published in 1996.Chris Bayliss, deputy secretary general of the International Aluminium Institute, agrees that the industry needs to be aware of changing demographics that will drive per capital consumption of aluminum.While the focus in North America is on the use of aluminum in cars, China and other eastern countries are looking more on their use in mass transit to move millions of people and goods long distances using lighter trains, trucks and ships. Others are looking at its use in bridges and buildings as a durable product that will last for 50 to 100 years.“We shouldn’t just be focusing on auto, although we are riding the crest of an auto wave in North America, but the opportunities are there for the industry much more broadly,” Bayliss said after addressing the conference.Despite the current challenges of lower prices and high inventories, Bayliss said global aluminum production is expected to increase by 50 per cent by 2025 or 2030 to reach 75 million tonnes.Canada’s abundant hydroelectricity should ensure it remains a key global supplier of aluminum and “value-added products” as long as prices remain competitive.“If you look at the mature production centres, Quebec and Canada are one of the few areas where you might see growth into the future,” he said, noting that Europe and the U.S. will see declines.The Middle East is pushing hard by offering low-cost energy and diversified operations, while China’s cost are highest but supply internal consumption.“Accessing the energy at the right price is the way that you need to do that,” he said. “(But) the smelters are not going to do it at a price that isn’t right.”Aluminum Association of Canada CEO said producers are eager to eventually expand their operations after the new Quebec government indicated the sector will be a key part of economic growth plans in the province during the next decade.Jean Simard said the only way for new smelter projects to get the green light is for the commercial L electricity rate to be significantly cut and competitive with the rest of the world.He said producers need to see rates fall about 40 per cent to about 2.7 cents per kWh from the current commercial rate of 4.8 cents.Simard said 90 per cent of plant closures in the world during the past decade have happened in the highest cost facilities, while investments have progressively waned because they are no longer feasible.Jacques Daoust, minister of economy, innovation and exports, is developing a policy that will help the industry, especially on the issue of energy costs.In meetings Monday, Simard said the minister said it will use energy and aluminum as tools for economic development for the next five to 10 years by working with industry players.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter. read more

NASA Gives Rare Look at Rocky Exoplanets Bizarre Surface

first_img Hubble Detects Scorching ‘Heavy Metal’ Exoplanet in SpaceNASA’s Planet Hunter TESS Discovers Three New Worlds NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope has provided us with mesmerizing views of galaxies and stars and now, it is giving us a rare look at another mysterious world: exoplanet LHS 3844b.Thanks to a new study using data from Spitzer, scientists can get a glimpse of the volcanic -like conditions on LHS 3844b’s surface, said a NASA press release. The study, which was published in Nature on Aug. 19, demonstrates that the exoplanet’s surface could resemble those of Mercury or Earth’s moon, since it may have little to no atmosphere and is likely covered in the same cooled volcanic material (mare) found in the dark areas of the moon’s surface.Exoplanet LHS 3844b, which is located 48.6 light-years from our planet and has a radius 1.3 times that of Earth, was discovered last year by NASA’s  Transiting Exoplanet Satellite Survey (TESS) mission. LHS 3844b orbits a tiny, cool type of star called an M dwarf and TESS found the exoplanet via the transit method, which involves detecting when the observed light of a parent star dims due to a planet orbiting between the star and our planet.During follow-up observations, Spitzer detected light from LHS 3844b’s surface and noted that the exoplanet makes one full revolution around its parent star in only 11 hours. It’s possible that LHS 3844b is “tidally locked,” meaning one of its sides permanently faces the star. The exoplanet’s star-facing side is roughly 1,410 degrees Fahrenheit and since it’s extremely hot, the exoplanet radiates an ample amount of infrared light. LHS 3844b’s parent star is relatively cool and enables Spitzer to spot LHS 3844b’s dayside. Following this observation, Spitzer was able to provide details on the atmosphere of a terrestrial world orbiting an M dwarf, according to NASA.Worlds beyond our solar system – #exoplanets – are common, but faªªªʳʳʳʳ.LHS 3844b is 48.6 light-years⤳ away. This small, rocky world is 1.3 times the size of and likely has little to no atmosphere. Its surface could be like the Moon or Mercury.https://t.co/9SyYM2GYHI pic.twitter.com/NGLiv85wd7— NASA Planetquest (@PlanetQuest) August 19, 2019The team measured the temperature difference between the exoplanet’s hot and cold sides and determined that there is an insignificant amount of heat being transferred between the two. If there was an atmosphere, hot air on the exoplanet’s dayside would grow in size and potentially foster life. Spitzer’s observations have led scientists to believe that there is little to no atmosphere present on LHS 3844b.LHS 3844b is likely covered in the same cooled volcanic material in dark areas of the Moon, called mare. Its “year,” the time it takes to orbit its star is just 11 hours!It’s also tidally locked like the Moon to Earth, so its “dayside” surface is 1,410° F (770° C). pic.twitter.com/kaONB3xTvp— NASA Planetquest (@PlanetQuest) August 19, 2019Even though Spitzer previously leveraged the transit method to study other planets, the team took their analysis to the next level by using LHS 3844b’s reflectiveness (surface albedo) to explore what it’s made of. The study showed that the exoplanet is “quite dark” and the team suggests that the planet may be be covered with a type of volcanic rock called basalt.“We know that the mare of the moon are formed by ancient volcanism,” Renyu Hu, co-author of the study and an exoplanet scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said in the press release. “And we postulate that this might be what has happened on this planet.”With these observations, scientists can further study exoplanets like LHS 3844b and analyze why they may lack atmospheres and other qualities of our solar system neighbors.More on Geek.com:Hubble Detects Scorching ‘Heavy Metal’ Exoplanet in SpaceThis Animated NASA Video Maps 4,000 Exoplanets in Deep SpaceMigrating Exoplanet Sculpts Disk Around Young Star in Neon Photo Stay on targetlast_img read more

250 more young persons to be recruited under JNSC

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, September 29, 2017 – Kingston – Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says that come November, an additional 250 young people will be recruited by the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) under the Jamaica National Service Corps (JNSC).   He said the new recruits will represent the second cohort drafted under the JNSC, which is the JDF’s new intake mechanism, following an initial 234 young people who graduated on September 23 following 13 weeks of training.The Prime Minister advised that unlike the first cohort, which had no females, “we certainly have women in the next intake”.   He was providing an update on the JNSC in a statement delivered during Tuesday’s (September 26) sitting of the House of Representatives.Mr. Holness said the 13-week training exercise represented the first of five phases comprising a year-long programme for the initial recruits.   He pointed out that areas covered in the curriculum under phase one included discipline, military service knowledge, barracks room procedures, physical fitness and conditioning, foot and arms drills, basic field craft/adventure training, map reading, basic first aid, and basic signals.The Prime Minister reiterated that the JNSC, established following an amendment to the Defence Act, which he tabled in Parliament in March, is a critical component of the JDF’s employment and engagement strategy.   Additionally, he said it is integral to the Government’s Housing, Opportunity, Production and Employment (HOPE) initiative, “which is an apt acronym for Help Our People Excel”.Mr. Holness noted that the newly minted soldiers will embody the JNSC’s underpinning principle to Learn, Earn, Give (back) and Save (LEGS).   He said they would do so by applying the JDF’s core values of commitment, courage, honour, integrity, loyalty and discipline.“In order to have a safe, secure and progressive nation, we must uphold these values and make them a way of life by spreading them throughout Jamaica.   This augurs well for Jamaica’s development and engagement of its young people, particularly our unattached youth,” he added.The Jamaica National Service Corps will facilitate an intake of 1,000 persons to the JDF annually, representing an increase of more than 700 individuals, for 12 months of training in military, vocational and broader life skills.These skills will equip them for either an extended career in the JDF or engagement in other professional areas of interest.Release: JISPhoto credit: JDF Related Items:last_img read more

Facebook extends its Dating service to Mexico Argentina

first_img Tags Internet Tech Industry 3 Share your voice Facebook Dating is expanding and soon will be getting new features. Facebook Facebook Dating users can now use the social network to make the love connection in more countries.Facebook on Thursday said it had added Mexico and Argentina to the list of countries where its matchmaking service is offered. The dating service launched in September for users in Colombia, with later expansion to Canada and Thailand.The social networking giant also gave a preview of some new features users can expect in the near future, including one that appears to be designed to address safety concerns. The feature, called Live Location Sharing, allows users to share their date plans and live location with a friend or family member on Facebook via Messenger.Another forthcoming feature aims to make it easier to create a Facebook Dating profile. The Auto Profile Create will automatically gather photos and information from a user’s Facebook account to create a suggested Dating profile. All the information in the new profile can be edited and removed before its creation, and users can still opt to create their own profile from scratch.The free service, which Facebook unveiled last May during its F8 developer conference, differs from competitors Tinder or Bumble. Instead of swiping left or right to register your interest or lack thereof in potential matches, you scroll through another user’s profile and tap if you’re interested. And you only see people who aren’t your Facebook friends, or people who are friends of friends.Facebook has said the aim of the service is to help users make lasting connections and not just find hookups.

Inside Disneys Star Wars land Galaxys Edge

first_img But first: yes the Millenium Falcon is the real deal! It’s a life size replica and it’s 100% true to life. #fangasm pic.twitter.com/uPs2cr9lNS— Vane Hand Orellana (@VaneHand) May 30, 2019 Guys, I think I joined the First Order today… #GalaxysEdge #Disneyland pic.twitter.com/CmbS2yeQZ0— Vane Hand Orellana (@VaneHand) May 30, 2019 Wednesday was media day at Galaxy’s Edge, which meant we were among the first commoners to see this new land up close. The rest of the world would have to wait two more days until the official grand opening May 31, that is if you were lucky enough to get a reservation. On Wednesday night, though, you can watch the opening ceremony of the newest park live.For the first month, Disney required guests to make a special reservation to visit the new part of the theme park and reservations sold out within the first few days of going on sale. After June 23, it will be open to everyone with a regular admission ticket to Disneyland. A true-to-life replica of Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon is what Star Wars dreams are made of. Disney In all my years of watching Star Wars films, not even the 3D Imax versions could’ve prepared me for what it felt to walk into this place. Otherworldly would be cliche, but pretty accurate. Everything from the marketplace storefronts to the multiple starships looked like they belonged somewhere in the Star Wars universe, or at least some movie set version of it.Except you wont find Batuu in any movie (it looks most like Jakku onscreen) because it’s unique to Disney and combines elements of a bunch of different planets, including Tatooine and Jedha.But back to the Falcon. After a brief moment of paralysis I walked toward it half expecting it to become smaller as I drew nearer, like somehow my eyes were deceiving me about the true scale of this thing. But it only became bigger. This thing truly is life-size and spans roughly the length of a basketball court measuring in at about 100 feet. Disney wants to make all your Star Wars dreams come true at the new Galaxy’s Edge park inside Disneyland — from riding shotgun in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon to having your drink at Oga’s Cantina or getting interrogated by a Stormtrooper on your way to the bathroom.Most Star Wars fans have only fantasized about what it would be like to travel to that galaxy far, far away, and on Wednesday, my dream became a reality. Or as close to that reality as I will get in my lifetime, unless light speed comes sooner than expected.

We walked up to a giant rock formation with a metal gate at the mouth of a cave reminiscent of the Resistance compound at the end of The Last Jedi. I half expected our guide to open the gates with a swing of his arms, or at least press a giant red button. Instead we just wrapped around the side of the gate where there was a side opening.Not quite the space landing I had pictured when I would embark on my imaginary Star Wars adventures as a kid, but pretty darn baller nonetheless. Especially because waiting for us on the other side of those gates was the Millennium Falcon!

They even have a power tool at each station so you can drill the legs into your own droid. Mine came preassembled already: an adorable R2 replica, about the size of a teddy bear. You press a button to “activate” your droid and you can even buy a personality chip to put inside of it for an extra $15. They also come with a remote control so you can drive him out of there on foot. (Sadly I was not able to take my little droid home, but I can see kids having a lot of fun with this.) Building a lightsaber at Savi’s WorkshopThe other paid experience at Galaxy’s Edge is building your own lightsaber. Tucked away behind what looks like a junkyard storefront, you go through a door and into a cave-like dwelling with a large round counter at the center. The table has about 12 different stations where the elements of a lightsaber await. I was asked to choose which elements I identified most with: I can’t remember all of them, because I was immediately drawn to the Power and Control combo. Next I was asked to pick a kyber crystal from a canister: red, blue, green or purple. You can guess which one I chose. As soon as you touch your crystal it starts to glow because the crystal also has to pick you. Then I put it into the lightsaber and assembled the rest of the parts. Once assembled I was surprised at how heavy this thing is. Not your average Disney Store lightsaber, this one is made of metal, not plastic, and feels like a 2lb dumbbell in my hands. I put it into a slot to activate it and immediately it started glowing red. The holder opened to reveal my red lightsaber. The laser part is actually an LED rod that looks like one of those long fluorescent light bulbs used in most office buildings. Everyone in that room will have that same aha moment of pulling out a lightsaber, so I can imagine getting the urge to start jousting with my neighbor if I were doing this as a tourist. I think I liked this experience even better than the droid making, but I will warn you of two things: the saber doesn’t collapse, so good luck taking this home (it does unscrew though), and the experience costs $200! So if you have multiple kids you might want to reconsider that plastic one you saw at the Disney Store.Space food tastes surprisingly familiarAnd then for the main course: the food and the drinks. For that we were taken to Docking Bay 7, a high-end diner for these parts of the galaxy with a wide selection of drinks and grub. I got to try a Mediterranean-style dish and a chocolate soufflé ball shaped like a BB-8. They both tasted great, but I think I was expecting more of a foreign flavor to these dishes. And that was just the sample platter. We were shown a bunch of other dishes you can get at different spots in Galaxy’s Edge, but you can read all of that here. Share your voice 22 Photos So what does blue milk actually taste like? I got a taste of that too: sugary, fruity and nothing like the creamy lukewarm milk I was expecting. You can also get green milk which I’m assuming has a similar taste. And a lot of these drinks come with a kick. This is the first of Disneyland’s parks (at least for the general public) that serves alcoholic beverages to guests at Oga’s Cantina. Cheers to that! I only got to test out the Yub Nub on media day, which reminded me of a sweet, yet surprisingly strong Mai Tai, which I’m not really a fan of, but it had passion fruit seeds inside which gave it an interesting texture. Character cameos and interactionBut the tour wouldn’t be complete without getting into some trouble. We made our way to a TIE Echelon spaceship, presumably belonging to Kylo Ren himself where a couple of Stormtroopers were waiting to interrogate me. Apparently these troopers can talk back, and I was encouraged to engage in conversation. I asked if I could join the First Order and they seemed receptive to my proposal. But when I asked them how they felt about Kylo Ren as a leader, they got a bit short with me and I could tell I might have been crossing the line as they stormed off. They sounded exactly like what they sound like in the movies, and I did engage in some back and forth, but I think most of their responses are prerecorded, or they’ve been trained only to say certain lines, because they didn’t seem to deviate too much from the script. Either way, talking with a Stormtrooper was definitely another one of those fangirl moments for me. I also saw them randomly asking a lady for identification as she walked passed them, so I’m sure that’s going to be a big part of the experience. I did have one brief encounter with Kylo Ren that night. They put on a performance at the stage in front of the TIE Echelon in which he was clearly upset  about finding the Resistance Spy. After the show he came down from the stage flanked by two storm troopers and marched towards the Resistance encampment. I stalked him like a weirdo to see if he would strike anyone down on his way, but was too starstruck (and honestly somewhat intimated) to go up to him and ask for a selfie. That said, you should absolutely try to interact with as many cast members as possible, because they do stay true to character. Kylo Ren at Galaxy's Edge Kylo Ren makes an appearance at Galaxy’s Edge. Disney Rey and Chewy on the other hand were slightly less intimidating, and I was able to snag a shot with both of them outside of Smuggler’s Run. Some of the characters at Galaxy’s Edge will be easy to recognize, but all the cast members, including the service staff are in amazing costumes and seem to be characters in an of themselves. Sorely missing from the cast list: Darth Vader. Because this experience takes place sometime within the most recent trilogy, my favorite character of the saga is absent from the storyline. You haven’t experienced Galaxy’s Edge until you see it at night We took a brief breather in the media center at around 4 p.m. to upload all our day’s work and publish our stories, but went back in at around 7:30 for the opening ceremony. This time I entered through one of the three main entrances accessible through Frontierland. They had rolled out a black carpet sprinkled with stars for the media and special guests who were invited. The sun was already setting by the time I got in, and as soon as it was dark enough for all the lights to shine, Galaxy’s Edge went through a transformation before my eyes. The colored spotlights and the harsh shadows made everything look more dramatic than in the daylight, and the small details that had given it a movie set feel earlier that day, seemed to vanish in the dark.star-wars-land-vanessa-preview-night-14The Millenium Falcon takes on new life at night. Vanessa Hand Orellana/CNET Even the Millennium Falcon looked like a different ship at night. The highlight of the evening though was the opening ceremony. They had us gather under the Millennium Falcon in front of a small stage where I assumed we’d have your run of the mill ribbon cutting ceremony. But this is Disney we’re talking about, and this was the first time Disneyland proper had built anything of this scale since Toontown in 1993, so I should’ve known better.Disney CEO and Chairman Bob Iger took the stage and started off thanking George Lucas and Walt Disney for their incredible visions that made Galaxy’s Edge possible. And then the rest of his speech gets somewhat blurry because it suddenly turned into a parade of all my Star Wars heroes (minus Carrie Fisher). And I nearly lost it.First person he called to the stage: George Lucas himself! I’ve lived in San Francisco, Lucas’ hometown, for about seven years now, I’ve even been to Lucas ranch, but never in my wildest dreams did I expect to be standing just a few feet away from him.Then Billy Dee Williams walked up on stage escorted by his daughter. The original Lando Calrissian, standing in front of me. And then Mark Hamill aka Luke Skywalker! At that point I was almost on the floor.img-4763George Lucas, Billy Dee Williams, Mark Hamill, Bob Iger and Harrison Ford at the opening ceremony of Galaxy’s Edge. Vanessa Hand Orellana / CNET Then a spark, a loud noise from the Falcon and all of a sudden the lights turned off for a moment. Bob Iger apologized and proceeded to ask if anyone knew how to fix this hunk of junk, to which my first thought was “you have the original owner standing right there”, but decided to give him a pass as soon as Han Solo’s voice echoed from the speakers. I though they may have had him record a message, but no. Harrison Ford walked up, gave the old Falcon a tap and I blacked out. Don’t worry, I didn’t really black out, but I was cursing and screaming like a crazy person along with everyone else in the crowd around me. Peak fandom unlocked at Galaxy’s Edge.The end credits to an epic dayAfter spending almost 12 hours at Galaxy’s Edge, it felt like I still had more to discover. That’s partly because it’s the largest “land” in Disneyland. As a fan you could easily spend a day just seeking out all the hidden treasures and easter eggs and likely waiting in line, let’s be honest. And I didn’t even get to witness all of it. They’re still building out Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, a roller-coaster-style ride that will put you in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance which I hear includes with a Kylo Ren encounter. This one is set to open before the end of the year. Dispatches from Galaxy’s Edge 7 Closing thoughts about #GalaxysEdge before I go back in:It needs dust, putrid smells and heaps of sandThen I’m 100% sold.— Vane Hand Orellana (@VaneHand) May 30, 2019 Smuggler’s run: flying the Millenium FalconInstead of hunky Harrison Ford meeting us at the entrance, we were welcomed by Hondo Ohnaka, a lesser known character from the animated Star Wars series that kind of looks like Jack Sparrow from Pirate’s of the Caribbean. And as wrapped up in the whole fantasy as I was, I still wasn’t sold on this guy looking fully human (or alien in this case). His body movements were impressively fluid, but something about his jaw being a bit out of synch with the voice made him seem mechanical. Not full Country Bear Jamboree mechanical, but somewhere in between.Don’t ask how he got his hands on the Millennium Falcon, but apparently the dude needs help moving some cargo, and isn’t keen on too many questions. I just want in, so that’s good with me. That’s where the assignment began. Six of us were assigned three different roles: pilot, gunner and flight engineer and handed matching tickets. I got pilot!We enter the ship via the main hold, and walk into the lounge with the legendary Dejarik (holochess) table that we’ve seen in so many of the movies. I’m able to wonder around the room attempting to press buttons and pull cables. Only a few actually do anything so luckily I didn’t break anything. It’s all part of the experience anyways.And then just when I thought I’d reached the pinnacle of Star Wars fandom, we made our way inside the cockpit! Not sure why you’d want to be anything but the pilot if you’re able to nab a the coveted ticket, because you’re able to experience it from the front row. The gunners are in the second row, and the engineers are in the back. Either way it’s not up to you to choose. On Wednesday I got to ride shotgun at the front with my colleague Gabriel Sama from CNET en español. (You can read about his experiences here!)We buckled up. I was instructed to man the controls to rise up and down, all of which I saw on a screen in front of me. I got to pull the lever to thrust into light speed. I’ve always wanted to do that and it was almost as satisfying as I had imagined. In many ways the ride is like Star Tours on steroids. You go on what feels like a three-minute journey through space, you run into rocks and asteroids, you’re taken in by the First Order and attacked by fighters. The experience is a bit more intimate and interactive, but it does still feel like a ride. The controls responded regardless of whether I pressed them or not, and even though the graphics were great, it still looked like a screen in front of me, and not a window into space.It was going to be hard to compete with the Millennium *bleeping* Falcon, but I kept an open mind when we walked past a giant X-Wing fighter which happened to be parked next to a smaller A-Wing. We’d clearly entered Resistance territory at this point.Piecing together a miniature R2-D2 at the Droid Depot Next up: the Droid Depot where I was about to build my very own R2-D2. I walked into what looks like a massive toolshed with a conveyor belt of droid parts parading in front of and above me. I was asked to pick and choose the pieces that would make up my new buddy.Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Droid DepotGuests can build their own personal droids at Batuu at Galaxy’s Edge.

A Fender Stratocaster electric guitar head stock i

first_img A Fender Stratocaster electric guitar head stock is sanded at the Fender factory in Corona, Calif. on Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2013. A Montreal city councillor will table a motion on Monday that recognizes the city as a headbangers’ paradise. Coun. Craig Sauve says it’s time that Montreal is recognized as a “city of excellence” in heavy metal music. THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP, Matt York MONTREAL — Metalheads rejoice! A Montreal councillor will table a motion on Monday that recognizes the city as a headbangers’ paradise.Coun. Craig Sauve says it’s time that Montreal is officially hailed as a “city of excellence” in heavy metal music.Sauve, a self-described metal fan, published his motion on social media to great fanfare Thursday.It notes that heavy metal music has a 36-year history in Quebec and has cemented its place as an “essential part of the cultural ecosystem.”It’s something the local politician has mulled for years, given the local metal scene’s numerous musicians, strong fan base and international recognition.“I wanted to take the time and recognize all the volunteers, all the people who work so hard to make us shine internationally,” Sauve said. “So it’s showing some love, showing some respect.”Sauve described the city’s vibrant metal scene as one that’s perhaps ignored, maligned and a bit under-appreciated.It has seen several bands get their starts here, including Cryptopsy and Kataklysm. The city hosts an annual, two-day summer metal festival dubbed Heavy Montreal in late July.“Heavy metal has been an important part of Montreal’s culture for many years. That the city recognizes it is fantastic,” said Nick Farkas, creator of Heavy Montreal and an executive at the concert promoter Evenko.The motion is likely to be voted on during a city council meeting on Monday and will have the support of Sauve’s Projet Montreal party, which is in the majority at city hall.Locally, Quebec City can also lay some claim to heavy metal excellence. And the band that is arguably the province’s most famous heavy metal outfit, Voivod, is from Jonquiere.But shining some light on Montreal is long overdue, Sauve said. “Metalheads are happy to be underground, but I think we’d like a little respect once in a while,” he said. “Having that institutional recognition is a big start.” Councillors to vote on motion declaring Montreal a heavy metal city by Sidhartha Banerjee, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 12, 2019 12:55 pm PDT Last Updated Apr 12, 2019 at 1:08 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Montreal|Montreal heavy metal|Montreal metal city|Montreal metal motion|Montreal Metalheadslast_img read more
