Wandering river otter avoids trap in tiny downtown Vancouver park

first_imgVANCOUVER — The wandering river otter with a taste for decorative and valuable koi carp has managed to elude a trap set Tuesday in hopes of removing it from a classical Chinese garden in Vancouver.Officials with the Vancouver Park Board baited the humane trap with chicken and smeared a mat with fish oil to entice the otter in an effort to relocate the adventurous mammal to a more appropriate home in Stanley Park, about three kilometres away.But a park board spokeswoman says the trap was empty Wednesday.She says there’s still no solution to the mystery of how the otter found the tranquil ponds within the walled Sun Yat-Sen Classical Garden at the edge of the city’s Chinatown.The otter has had no trouble chasing down some of the large, and very old koi that live in the garden’s ponds, and is blamed for eating about five or six of them.While they try to catch the otter, park board and Vancouver Aquarium staff are also making plans to remove the roughly 11 large koi still remaining in the ponds.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Van Dijk appeals for patience from Liverpool fans

first_imgLiverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk has called for more patience from the club’s supporters after the crowd appeared nervy during the home draw with Leicester City.The Reds failed to extend their lead over Manchester City at the top of the Premier League standings to seven points following their 1-1 draw at Anfield with the Foxes on Wednesday night.The result means Jurgen Klopp’s men failed to beat a team outside the top six in the league for the first time this season.Asked if he could sense the nervousness during the game, Van Dijk said, according to talkSPORT:“It sounded like it.”“I don’t think [it transmits to the players] but obviously you get that feeling as well from the crowd and I think it’s not really necessary at the moment.”Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“But obviously everyone wants to win so bad and that’s what we want as well but sometimes you need to be very patient.”“In the end it’s all about showing on the pitch and we’re not going to be affected by that.”“[But] we want everyone to cheer us on and keep pushing even if we have tough moments, even if we’re 1-0 down or maybe more.”“We just need everyone to pull in the same direction and keep going, that’s the only way forward.”last_img read more

Shawsheen Tech Among The First Mass High Schools To Participate In eSports League

first_imgBILLERICA, MA — Massachusetts is one of the first five states to offer its schools early access to a state-sanctioned esports league sponsored by the Massachusetts School Administrators Association (MSAA) and PlayVS, the company building the infrastructure and official platform for high school esports. High school students across Massachusetts already signed up to compete in Season Zero which began this October by visiting PlayVS.com.Video games have already been introduced as part of the state’s curriculum, but never before have schools been able to offer esports as a sanctioned league.“At Shawsheen Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School, Kelly Corrigan teaches the skills of computer programming through video game design,” stated Tim Broadrick, Superintendent-Director of Shawsheen Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School. “Last year, she started Shawsheen Tech’s first after-school video game club. Participation exceeded 50 students each afternoon. This year, Corrigan’s students are participating in Season Zero, with both Varsity and JV teams.”Shawsheen student Vincent Caccamesi is a member of the school’s team, and comments “I’ve never been involved in a sport or any organized after-school programs; it just wasn’t my cup of tea. But this is something I love being a part of and I look forward to it.”Eric Burdick, who is also a Shawsheen student, shares “I have always been on some type of sports team, pretty much my whole life, and with esports instead of relying on physical strength, it’s more like relying on critical thinking skills. It’s challenging but a great team to be part of!”“Here in Massachusetts, we are very excited to be one of the early state adopters of esports. We are aware of many students in our schools who find excitement, challenge and friendships through esports,” says Richard L. Pearson, Associate Director of the MSAA. “Having a structured activity for students to gather as a team, working toward a common goal with pride in their school is very important to the overall culture and climate for all students. The students are active in esports already so adding this opportunity to a vibrant school community is a huge plus!”PlayVS recently announced new game partnerships with Psyonix and Hi-Rez Studios, publishers of Rocket League and SMITE respectively, joining League of Legends by Riot for MSAA/ PlayVS’ Inaugural Season which begins in February 2019. MSAA/PlayVS continue to focus on enhancing students’ experiences by adding popular game titles to attract players who are interested in other game genres. Through these partnerships, students will have unprecedented access to these games as part of their MSAA/PlayVS league participation fee. For example, with free-to-play games, students will receive in-game perks like Champion Unlocked for League of Legends. For paid games, publishers will provide copies of their game to every school competing in their league on the PlayVS platform. This gives students a level playing field as they sharpen their skills throughout the season.“One of the reasons we’re most excited about esports is accessibility. With League of Legends, and the addition of Rocket League and SMITE, we’re able to take another huge step forward as we open the pathway for more students to compete and be recognized in the burgeoning esports industry,” said PlayVS CEO and founder Delane Parnell.The lineup of games for the PlayVS platform has been curated to offer a variety of multiplayer, real-time strategy and sports game options that appeal to students with diverse interests within esports. Most importantly, all of these games require critical thinking and teamwork, which are valuable skills students can gain through participation in esports. Unlike traditional sports, joining a MSAA/PlayVS team does not involve tryouts, cuts, or any experience – just the desire to play. The Inaugural Season will begin in February of 2019, and students can sign up on the PlayVS website now.(NOTE: The above press release is from the Massachusetts School Administrators’ Association.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Withdraw Narayanganj SP EC

first_imgThe election commission has directed the public security division of the home ministry to withdraw Narayanganj superintendent of police (SP) Anisur Rahman on specific allegations, reports UNB.”The decision to withdraw the SP has been taken on specific allegations,” EC secretary Helal Uddin Ahmed said at a press briefing on Wednesday night.The EC move came after the BNP-led 20-party alliance placed a demand for removal of the police official.Earlier in the day, the EC sent a letter to the public security division to withdraw the SP.In the letter, the EC asked the division to give the charge of the SP to another official.On 25 November, the 20-party alliance placed a written demand for removal of the Narayanganj SP saying that they are in doubt whether he discharges the election duty neutrally as his wife Fatema Tuzzahura is a Member of Parliament from the reserved seat.Earlier on 26 November, the deputy commissioner of Natore was withdrawn.Besides, the commission has already asked to withdraw the officers-in-charge of Louhajang and Mithapukur police stations.last_img read more

France moves against Iran over Paris bomb plot

first_imgThis picture taken on October 2, 2018 shows an Israeli flag coloured foot mat at a door outside the Zahra Centre, the headquarters of a a Shiite Islamic association in Grande Synthe, northern France, after it was raided by 200 police men as well as the homes of its leaders who are suspected of supporting `terrorist organisations.` Photo: AFPFrance froze the assets of two suspected Iranian intelligence operatives on Tuesday in retaliation for an alleged bomb plot uncovered near Paris in June, in a move that could cause diplomatic tensions with Tehran.The French government announced it had frozen assets belonging to two Iranians and Iran’s ministry of security and intelligence following the alleged plot to bomb an Iranian opposition group in a Parisian suburb in June.“This extremely serious act envisaged on our territory could not go without a response,” France’s interior, foreign and economy ministers said in a rare joint statement.“In taking this decision, France underlines its determination to fight against terrorism in all its forms, particularly on its own territory,” they added.The foiled attack in June was to have targeted a meeting of thousands of Iranian opposition supporters which was also attended by leading US figures, including close allies of President Donald Trump.Six people were arrested afterwards in coordinated raids by European police forces, including an Iranian diplomat called Assadollah Asadi, who is set to be extradited from Germany to Belgium for prosecution.Asadi was targeted by France for the six-month asset freeze on Tuesday along with another man named as Saeid Hashemi Moghadam.Iran has denied any involvement in the alleged bomb plot and said the opposition group, the People’s Mujahedeen of Iran (MEK), had orchestrated the plot to discredit Iranian President Hassan Rouhani as he embarked on a tour of Europe.The counter measures by France could have major diplomatic repercussions at a time when France is working to keep Iran in the 2015 accord to limit its nuclear programme amid major tensions in the Middle East.French President Emmanuel Macron had vowed to visit Tehran early in his term as president, but major differences between the countries on issues such as the wars in Syria and Yemen, as well as the bomb plot, have led to tensions.Raids on Islamic centreAlso Tuesday, around 200 police launched a dawn anti-terror raid on one of the biggest Shiite Muslim centres in France, the Zahra Centre France, as well as the homes of its directors.A total of 11 people were questioned and three were arrested, security sources told AFP, including for the illegal possession of firearms.The Zahra Centre France was founded in 2009 by Yahia Gouasmi, who has spoken in support of Lebanese Islamist group Hezbollah and the Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.Gouasmi is also the founder of the Anti-Zionist Party in France and is an associate of controversial comedian Dieudonne M’bala M’bala, a convicted anti-Semite.The raids on Tuesday were staged as part of the “prevention of terrorism” procedures, regional authorities said in a statement.Police have been closely following the activities of the Zahra Centre “because of the strong support by its leaders for several terrorist organisations and in favour of movements backing ideas that are contrary to the values” of France, a statement from local authorities said.On its website, the association says its purpose since its foundation in 2009 has been “to make known the message of Islam through the eyes of the Prophet and his family.”last_img
