NASA snapped that monster meteor fireball over the Bering Sea

That’s less powerful than the devastating fireball that impacted Chelyabinsk in Russia in 2013, but it’s still the second-largest meteor explosion of the last few decades.The Bering Sea fireball was far enough away from civilization to not affect any humans, but it’s a sobering reminder of the power of incoming space rocks. This is why NASA is working on ways to protect our planet from wayward asteroids that could potentially be much more dangerous than the recent meteor. Use promo code 19LABOR10 to get an unusually good deal on JBL’s interesting hybrid product — not quite headphones, and not quite a traditional speaker, but something you wear like neckphones to listen to music on the go. $999 DJI Osmo Action camera: $261 (save $89) I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. Lenovo Smart Clock: $59.99 (save $20) The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand. It’s a little smaller than the Amazon Echo Show 5, but also a full $30 less (and tied with Prime Day pricing) during this Best Buy Labor Day sale. $6 at Tidal An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student.

Saudi Arabia allows women to travel without male consent

News Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Saudi Arabia on Friday (Aug. 2) published new laws that loosen restrictions on women by allowing all citizens — women and men alike — to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that had controlled women’s freedom of movement.The new laws, a potential game-changer for Saudi women’s rights, are to go into effect by the end of the month.The kingdom’s legal system has long been criticized because it treated adult women as minors, requiring they have a man’s consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman’s male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman’s son.The changes were widely celebrated by Saudis on Twitter, with many posting memes showing people dashing to the airport with luggage and others hailing the 33-year-old crown prince believed to be the force behind these moves. But the changes also drew backlash from conservatives, who posted clips of senior Saudi clerics in past years arguing in favor of guardianship laws.Other changes issued in the decrees allow women to register a marriage, divorce or a child’s birth, and obtain official family documents, which could ease hurdles women faced in obtaining a national identity card and enrolling their children in school.Women are now also allowed to be legal guardians of their children, a right previously held only by men.Still in place, however, are rules that require male consent for a woman to leave prison, exit a domestic abuse shelter or marry. Women, unlike men, still cannot pass on citizenship to their children and cannot provide consent for their children to marry.Under the kingdom’s guardianship system, women essentially relied on the “good will” and whims of male relatives to determine the course of their lives. There were cases, for example, of young Saudi women whose parents are divorced, but whose father is the legal guardian, being unable to accept scholarships to study abroad because they did not have permission to travel.Amnesty International said Friday a lot remains to be done for women’s rights in Saudi Arabia but that the new laws could ease the guardianship system. Guardianship laws have “been a stifling system in the daily lives of women in Saudi Arabia,” said Lynn Malouf, Mideast’s research director at Amnesty.“These reforms really are a testament to the work of the brave activism and the suffering and the ordeals” Saudi women and men fought for in their calls for reform, she added.Saudi women fleeing domestic abuse and the guardianship system occasionally drew international attention to their plight, as 18-year-old Rahaf al-Qunun did before Canada granted her asylum. The stories of runaway women have created a flurry of negative headlines for the kingdom.To leave the country, some Saudi women say they had to hack into their father’s phone and change the settings on a government app to allow themselves permission to leave the country. There were calls in Washington for Google and Apple to block access to the app entirely.In a lengthy study of Saudi male guardianship laws in 2016, Human Rights Watch criticized it as “system that was ripe for abuse.”The new rules, approved by King Salman and his Cabinet, allow any person 21 and older to travel abroad without prior consent and any citizen to apply for a Saudi passport on their own.The decrees, issued Wednesday, were made public before dawn Friday in the kingdom’s official weekly Um al-Qura gazette. The government said Friday the new rules would be in effect by the end of August.A number of sweeping changes have been promoted by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman as he drives an ambitious economic reform plan that encourages more women to enter the workforce. He was behind lifting the ban on women driving last year, loosening rules on gender segregation and bringing concerts and movie theaters to the country.He has also led a simultaneous crackdown on activists, including detaining the country’s leading women’s rights activists who had demanded an end to the very male guardianship rules now being curtailed. The women, among them Loujain al-Hathloul, are facing trial and allege they were tortured in prison.The crown prince continues to face widespread international criticism over the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul last year. Saudi Arabia has denied any involvement by the prince but its own investigation acknowledged the operation was planned by two of the prince’s top aides.Saudi newspaper Arab News noted that in the segment on travel, the new decree were written in gender-neutral language rather than outright stating that women no longer need male consent.News of the changes had been teased in state-linked Saudi media for weeks, possibly to ready the public and gauge reaction.The way the decrees were announced and the language used signal how sensitive these moves are among conservatives in the country. For years, state-backed preachers told the Saudi public that women should not travel longer than a night alone, claiming this was rooted in Islamic practice.Other Muslim countries, however, don’t have similar restrictions on women’s travel. Still, Saudi clerics have supported the imposition of male guardianship based on a Quran verse that states men are the protectors and maintainers of women.Other Islamic scholars argue this misinterprets fundamental Quranic concepts like equality and respect between the sexes.___Aya Batrawy writes for The Associated Press.

Martian Face Turns Out to be a Rocky Mesa

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — In 1976, the Viking spacecraft, flying above Mars, captured an image of what appeard to be a large face on the surface of the planet. The face appeared, to many, as proof that a Martian civilization existed; beings not unlike humans must have populated Mars at one time. The famous “face on Mars” is located in the Cydonia region of Mars. The latest image was taken with the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera. The camera is located on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The Orbiter is a satellite in orbit around Mars, designed to get a good look at the Martian surface. The resolution offered by these images is much higher than that taken by previous spacecraft. Images have been taken over the years, including in 1998 and 2001. The latest images were taken in 2007. As technology has improved, though, images show the face becoming blurrier and blurrier. And now, it appears the face on Mars has disappeared altogether. Technology has advanced a considerable amount since the original photo was taken, though. And now NASA has released a new image of the area — one that shows quite clearly that what looks like a face in the 1976 image is really just a rocky mesa. FOXNews.com offers this explanation for the differences in the two images:Taken from much nearer to the planet and with a substantially higher resolution camera, the features so distinctive in the original image completely vanish in the new one. The original Viking Orbiter image had much lower spatial resolution and a different lighting geometry, factors that led to the optical illusion. 1976 Viking image.

Rep LaFave Road funding for Upper Peninsula

first_img12Apr Rep. LaFave: Road funding for Upper Peninsula Categories: LaFave News Like you, I’m frustrated with the condition of our roads.That’s why I fought for a plan to provide an additional $175 million in road and bridge funding statewide without raising taxes or fees. The money will go directly to counties, cities and villages for road preservation and construction.Some of the communities in line for additional funding include Menominee County ($376,372), Dickinson County ($313,720), and Delta County ($418,066). Local cities and villages also will receive funding including Carney ($3,268), Daggett ($4,290), Escanaba ($102,891), Garden ($2,044), Gladstone ($48,247), Iron Mountain ($69,973), Kingsford ($46,900), Menominee City ($72,393), Norway ($31,603), Powers ($5,225) and Stephenson ($9,488).This money will be used for the current construction season and will have a positive impact on our communities.This additional money comes on top of earlier projections and record level road funding for local allocations in 2018, including Menominee County ($4,872,198), Dickinson County ($4,005,073) Delta County ($5,389,322), Escanaba ($1,336,613), Gladstone ($626,754) and Iron Mountain ($908,997).The Michigan Department of Transportation will work closely with local road commissions to ensure our roads last longer and are properly maintained. There have already been many projects announced in Menominee, Dickinson and Delta counties for 2018 and 2019.The projects will improve road conditions and make travel safer.Some of the Menominee County projects include:•           Sealing and pothole patching at locations to be determined by the road commission;•           Finish paving the No. 10 Lane Bridge over the Little River; and•           Complete construction of Bay De Noc Road from Birch Creek Road to north of No. 7 Road.Some of the Dickinson County projects include:•           Crush, shape and pave in Waucedah and Norway townships;•           Paving projects in Breitung Township;•           Reconstruction and drainage correction of a section of Leeman Road; and•           Paving County Road 577 and County Road 607.Some of the Delta County projects include:•           Reconstruct and overlay 18.5 miles of Highway 13;•           Pave 1.75 miles of County Road 416; and•           Seal about 60 miles of primary and local roads.I will work closely with MDOT and local road commissions to ensure they have the resources to complete these local projects.I will continue to fight for the residents in our community and make sure that road funding makes it way north of the Mackinac Bridge.###last_img read more

But the street wont be closed to pedestrians The

first_imgBut the street won’t be closed to pedestrians.The matter was discussed at a special meeting of the council’s Health and Community Committee last week.Councillors heard the Derry-born writer of the series Lisa McGee wanted to film in her home city as she didn’t want to ‘fake Derry’ after scenes from the first series were shot in Belfast.Hat Trick Productions, who are making the award winning series for Channel 4 TV, said they would be using the backdrop of the Guildhall which would help boost tourism to the area.The traders claimed the street closure would hit deliveries and there was an onus on the council to help them as their businesses were already struggling.Councillors were told the PSNI and Roads Service had no objections to the closures.After a short adjournment, the council gave the closure the green light.Committee chair and Sinn Fein councillor Ruairi McHugh said the committee was of the opinion that the positives ‘outweighed’ the negatives.The new series is expected to aired in the Spring of 2019.Filming for second series of Derry Girls starts in city was last modified: November 17th, 2018 by John2John2 Tags: They were spotted in Bogside today filming scenes for the long awaited second series.On Thursday, filming moves to the city centre where a number of traders in the street had complained by letter to Derry City and Strabane District Council about plans to close the street to traffic next week to allow filming.The filming will see the closure of Shipquay Place and Shipquay Street to traffic from Thursday, November 15 and on Friday, November 16, between 9.15 am and 5 pm.A ‘stop and go’ system will be put in place in a bid to allow traffic through during breaks in filming.
