Ponca Tribe scores win in fight to keep Iowa casino open

OMAHA, Neb. — The Ponca Tribe of Nebraska has secured another win in its fight with Iowa and Nebraska to keep its newly opened casino in western Iowa.The National Indian Gaming Commission issued yet another ruling in favour of the tribe, saying on Wednesday that the tribe has the right to operate the Prairie Flower Casino on land it acquired in Carter Lake, Iowa.The $10 million Prairie Flower opened in November with 200 slot-style machines after the federal commission initially approved the tribe’s casino license in 2017, some 10 years after the tribe began its effort to open the casino.While the casino is technically in Iowa, it lies on the western side of the Missouri River and is surrounded by Omaha. The neighbouring city of Council Bluffs, Iowa — which already hosts three state-licensed casinos — and the states of Iowa and Nebraska sued to try to shut it down, with opponents in Iowa fearing it will siphon off gambling tax revenue and opponents in Nebraska fearing the casino could draw crime to Omaha.Unlike most other tribal casinos, the Prairie Flower wasn’t built on a reservation. The Ponca Tribe, which was forced to leave its homeland along the Missouri River in Nebraska by the U.S. government in the 1870s, has no reservation. The U.S. government terminated the tribe in the 1960s and took its remaining land as part of a policy that sought to abolish reservations and assimilate Native Americans into mainstream American society. The tribe regained its federal recognition in 1990, and most of its 4,500 members are spread over 15 counties in Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota.The lawsuit faults the federal commission’s decision to license the Prairie Flower, saying the tribe misrepresented its intentions when it initially announced plans for a health centre on the Carter Lake lot. In March, a federal judge overseeing the lawsuit ordered the commission to analyze whether that agreement should alter the commission’s 2017 conclusion that the Carter Lake lot constitutes restored tribal lands that are eligible under federal law for tribal casinos.The commission’s decision Wednesday confirmed that the agreement did not change its 2017 finding.“Since the parcel is within the aboriginal territory of the tribe and the tribe possesses modern connections to it, based on the geographic factor alone, the parcel is restored lands,” the commission said.The Iowa attorney general’s office said Thursday that it is reviewing the ruling and “considering our next steps.” Dick Wade, an attorney representing Council Bluffs, said the city intends to continue with the lawsuit to try to shut the Ponca casino down, but acknowledged that Wednesday’s ruling “has complicated things” for the plaintiffs.Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson had harsh words for the commission Thursday, saying the federal group’s decision was reached with no input from the involved parties and that it wrongly disregarded the tribe’s initial stated intentions to use the land for a health clinic. Peterson called on the U.S. Department of Interior and others at the federal level to review the work and governance of the commission.“Ultimately, this issue will be decided by the federal courts,” Peterson said.James Meggesto, an attorney for the tribe, believes there’s little to debate in light of the commission’s reaffirmation upholding the casino.“The decision effectively ends the legal battle in district court,” he said.Margery A.

Nissan presses on with UK investment in £37 million plant expansion

Nissan is continuing its commitment to its UK manufacturing base by investing £37 million in expanding its Sunderland car production plant. The new investment will see the facility extended to cater for a new extra-large 5,200 tonne press line to support the ongoing UK production of the brand’s crossover and electric car models.Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said, “This is great news for Nissan and its Sunderland workforce and follows more than £1 billion of fresh investment into UK vehicle production already announced this year. UK automotive is experiencing a renaissance and continued investments like this will help Britain build on its growing reputation for low carbon vehicle development. With commitment to both electric vehicles and crossovers, this is also an example of a manufacturer investing in two market segments which are seeing strong growth both in the UK and abroad.”The new press line and panel storage area will extend the current facility, taking its total size to over 362,000m2 – equivalent to more than 50 football pitches. The press will be the biggest at the Sunderland plant and make larger panels for all the Nissan vehicles manufactured there, as well as the two upcoming new Infiniti models.Nissan Senior Vice President for Manufacturing, Purchasing and Supply Chain Management in Europe, Colin Lawther, said, “Nearly three million customers have bought a Nissan crossover that was manufactured here in the UK, and the 33,000 Nissan LEAFs made here have helped it to become the best-selling electric vehicle in history.“This fresh investment is a clear signal of our intent to continue leading in these key areas for the Nissan brand, with our crossover and electric vehicle success founded on the exceptional quality and delivery standards achieved by our workforce here in Sunderland.”In addition to the £37 million investment, Nissan is also recruiting 300 new staff to support the production of the forthcoming new models.

At tomorrow’s Supervisor’s Board meeting Chairwoman Gaspar will be presenting a Board letter that will propose a partnership with County Health and Human Services, the Prescription Drug Abuse Task Force, Sheriff Gore, DA Stephan, The Safe Homes Coalition and the SD Association of Realtors.Their mission will be to educate families about the safe use, safe storage and proper disposal of prescription medications. In the last few years there has been a growing trend of theft of prescription medications during open houses so the focus will be on educating homeowners on the importance of locking up medications when other people are in your home. In the next few months, County staff will update the County’s Prescription Drug Abuse Plan and present it in March 2019.In March, 200 real estate professionals, community leaders, family members affected by overdose and addiction, and other dedicated volunteers have committed to knock on 50 doors each to directly touch 10,000 members of our community. This program breaks new ground by conducting the first ever countywide “precinct” walk to bring education directly to families and the community.Upon request, community members will be provided with a DEA-compliant, anonymous, pre-addressed postage-paid envelope that allows them to conveniently and easily dispose of medications otherwise sitting in their medicine cabinets. These medications will be received by a DEA-compliant disposal facility, where they will be weighed and then incinerated, eliminating these medications from the waste stream and providing metrics that allow us to measure the effectiveness of this campaign.According to the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy the latest estimates show that in 2017, more than 72,000 Americans died from drug overdoses, most involving opioids like prescription pain medications, heroin and illicitly made fentanyl. These deaths outnumbered deaths caused by motor-vehicle crashes and they outnumbered deaths caused by suicide. For the second year in a row, overdose deaths were higher than the total number of American service members killed in the Vietnam War. October 18, 2018last_img read more

Southeastern Virginia Community Forges ahead to Mitigate Projected Rise in Sea Levels

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Hampton, Va., home of Langley AFB and the former Fort Monroe, is on the front lines of the battle against rising sea levels. Water levels in the Hampton Roads region are expected to rise by up to five feet, while the land sinks up to 7.5 inches, by 2100, a net rise which tops the rate of any place on the East Coast. But the city has taken multiple steps to prepare for one of the most conspicuous effects of climate change, reports the Washington Post.Hampton now requires first floors of new buildings to be three feet higher than the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requirement. Officials also are considering installing pervious pavement for sidewalks and parking lots, which will allow standing water to drain into the ground slowly. The city purchased and demolished 18 frequently flooded homes before converting the tract into a large drainage area that also provides a marsh habitat for wildlife and native plants. A plan to elevate more than 35 homes, partially supported by FEMA, is under way as well. And over the next five years, the city is investing $26 million in water quality projects to slow erosion and reduce tidal surges.Next month, Hampton will release a plan for adding more resilient infrastructure to a waterway which leads from the James River to Langley AFB, in an effort to mitigate the impact of flooding throughout the city’s core.Washington Post photo by Vicki Cronis-Nohelast_img read more

GOP Candidates for US Senate Debate Abortion Social Issues

first_imgRepublican Senate candidates debate social issuesThe three Republicans vying to run against U.S. Sen. Mark Begich met today in an Eagle River church to debate social issues in a forum sponsored by Alaska Family Action. All three took anti-abortion, conservative positions but, judging by the applause, this was Joe Miller’s crowd.Download AudioMiller doesn’t believe in exceptions to an abortion ban, even when a woman becomes pregnant as a result  rape or incest.“This is the barometer of ‘We the people,’” he said. “Are we going to protect the most defenseless, or are we going to give platitudes?”The audience at Community Covenant Church cheered and applauded.Mead Treadwell says the issue is personal with him.“My mom got pregnant in college. Abortion was available then, but I stand in front of you today because mom and dad chose life, and I thank god every day that she did,” Treadwell said.Treadwell says abortion should only be allowed if both the mother and baby would otherwise die. Dan Sullivan says he would allow a rape and incest exception.“That does not mean I’m supportive of abortions in those situations, but because they’re such horrendous situations and support for the victim in those kind of situations of rape and incest is also very important, from my perspective that’s something that the family should be making the decision on,” Sullivan said.Miller had the other two on the defensive for blocking an anti-abortion initiative in state government. Lt. Gov. Treadwell and Sullivan, a former state attorney general, say the measure they ruled against conflicted with existing law.“Was that a hard decision to make? Yeah,” Sullivan said. “Did I feel I had fidelity to the law? What I was supposed to do as attorney general? Yes. Sometimes these are difficult choices.”Treadwell challenged Miller to draft a better initiative than the one he had to turn down.“If it passes muster, that initiative could move forward, but Joe, you just can’t criticize people for following the law,” Treadwell said.”We followed the law!”Miller had a ready response: “You know, we’ve heard that argument before, ‘I was just following orders.’”The candidates all says they are against amnesty for illegal immigrants, against allowing gay marriage and against legislation that would roll back the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case. Miller is running far behind the other two in the polls, and in campaign contributions. In his closing statement, though, he suggested those present give to the family of Rick Shields, a Palmer conservative activist who died a few days ago. Miller, who says he’s the only non-millionaire in the race, managed to turn the plea into a subtle dig at his rivals.“Of course, Dan doesn’t need your money, and Mead’s spending his own, and you know that my campaign functions on sweat equity. But please don’t give to our campaigns today. If you came here with a checkbook to write out to one of these candidates give it to the Shields,” Miller said.During Treadwell’s closing statement, Miller supporters passed out a two-year-old press release from the ACLU highlighting that Treadwell allowed transgender Alaskans to change the gender category on their drivers’ licenses.This was a pre-Primary debate, so Democrat Mark Begich wasn’t represented. His campaign issued a written statement afterward characterizing the forum as contest “over who would be most effective at denying women access to birth control or cutting funding for women’s reproductive health services.”last_img read more

GTA V gameplay trailer now available to watch

first_imgEver since the release date of September 17 was announced for GTA V back in January, a steady trickle of new information has been released about the game. Rockstar announced both Special and Collector’s editions if you have some extra cash to spend, there were pre-order bonuses to be had, and there’s been plenty of screenshots alongside two official trailers to watch.Today, Rockstar has released a third trailer, and it’s an important one because it’s the first to show off actual gameplay footage. You can watch it below:The first trailer focused on setting the scene, showing off the location, and the underlying storyline of the game. The second trailer was all about the characters and you get to meet Franklin, Trevor, and Michael among others.The three main characters were also better introduced in another video split into three parts, with each focusing on just one guy. All three videos were great introductions to the game, but Rockstar kept us waiting until today for actual gameplay footage.Now read: GTA V has an 8GB mandatory install, ships on 2 discs for Xbox 360last_img read more

Kepler data reveals existence of 20 promising exoplanets hiding in plain sight

first_img More information: Planetary Candidates Observed by Kepler. VIII. A Fully Automated Catalog With Measured Completeness and Reliability Based on Data Release 25, arXiv:1710.06758 [astro-ph.EP] arxiv.org/abs/1710.06758AbstractWe present the Kepler Object of Interest (KOI) catalog of transiting exoplanets based on searching four years of Kepler time series photometry (Data Release 25, Q1—Q17). The catalog contains 8054 KOIs of which 4034 are planet candidates with periods between 0.25 and 632 days. Of these candidates, 219 are new in this catalog and include two new candidates in multi-planet systems (KOI-82.06 and KOI-2926.05), and ten new high-reliability, terrestrial-size, habitable zone candidates. This catalog was created using a tool called the Robovetter which automatically vets the DR25 Threshold Crossing Events (TCEs) found by the Kepler Pipeline Twicken et al. (2016). Because of this automation, we were also able to vet simulated data sets and therefore measure how well the Robovetter separates those TCEs caused by noise from those caused by low signal-to-noise transits. Because of these measurements we fully expect that this catalog can be used to accurately calculate the frequency of planets out to Kepler’s detection limit, which includes temperate, super-Earth size planets around GK dwarf stars in our Galaxy. This paper discusses the Robovetter and the metrics it uses to decide which TCEs are called planet candidates in the DR25 KOI catalog. We also discuss the simulated transits, simulated systematic noise, and simulated astrophysical false positives created in order to characterize the properties of the final catalog. We describe how we measure the completeness and reliability and how they vary with period, signal-to-noise, number of transits, and stellar type. Also, we discuss a value called the disposition score which provides an easy way to select a more reliable, albeit less complete, sample of candidates. The entire KOI catalog and all of the simulated data used to characterize this catalog are available at the NASA Exoplanet Archive. (Phys.org)—A large international team of researchers working with data sent back from NASA’s Kepler space telescope has found evidence of 20 previously unknown, promising exoplanets. In their paper uploaded to the arXiv preprint server, the team describes the exoplanets and highlights the ones that appear to be the most likely to fit into the Goldilocks category. Credit: NASA The researchers report that they used a tool called the Robovetter to sift through data from Kepler planetary sightings to winnow down the possibilities—the tool narrows down hits to those that are deemed candidates to support life. Many of the 20 exoplanets that were discovered had long orbits—one in particular, KOI-7923.01, was found to have an orbit of 395 days and was very close in size to Earth. The team found that it was also a little cooler than Earth due to its distance from its star relative to Earth’s orbit and the star being cooler. The team notes that their initial study suggested the planet is likely covered by a cold tundra, but that it is still not too cold to support life.Unfortunately, the newly discovered planets are still not fully confirmed because Kepler ran into trouble after recording the part of the sky in which the planets are thought to exist. Thus, Kepler was only able to observe the planets two times—not nearly enough for confirmation. Despite the lack of data, the team reports that they are nearly certain that the candidates are not only planets, but are possibly habitable, as well. Ground-based observations are required to confirm the findings.The find was derived from the photometry data sent back by the space telescope over the course of four years before trouble with its reaction wheels back in 2013. The 20 exoplanets of interest were part of a catalogue of 8,054 “Kepler Objects of Interest” that were pared down to 4,034 exoplanets that were believed to have orbits between .25 and 632 days. The 20 exoplanets sifted out are believed to represent those most likely able to support life and thus will receive the most attention over the next several years. © 2017 Phys.org Citation: Kepler data reveals existence of 20 promising exoplanets ‘hiding in plain sight’ (2017, November 1) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-11-kepler-reveals-exoplanets-plain-sight.htmlcenter_img Three ‘super-Earth’ exoplanets orbiting nearby star discovered Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

Amid fanfare and celebration The Parisian Macao o

first_imgAmid fanfare and celebration, The Parisian Macao opened its doors to the public for the first time on Tuesday 13 September.The grand opening of the newest integrated resort from Sands China Ltd. and parent company Las Vegas Sands Corp. represents the crowning achievement of company Chairman and CEO Mr. Sheldon G. Adelson’s vision for the Cotai Strip.“What started with a Venetian and now adds a Parisian to the family, the Cotai Strip has become one of the world’s greatest tourism marvels,” said Mr. Adelson. “Before our very eyes, Macao is making a similar transition to the one it took Las Vegas decades to make, evolving from a destination only suited for gaming customers, to an environment which still provides a safe and reputable gaming experience, but also offers a wide variety of activities, attractions and amenities for people of all backgrounds, income levels and interests.”“No one has believed more, or invested more, in Macao’s future as a leisure and business destination,” Mr. Adelson continued. “We never wavered in our development plans, or our desire to serve as a model for the type of development which would help diversify Macao’s economy through the introduction and growth of important non-gaming attractions. I’m tremendously proud and honoured that our company made such a bold commitment to Macao and I will be forever grateful to the people of Macao and its leaders for the support they have shown us since even before we opened the Sands Macao in 2004. Adelson participated in a Q&A session earlier in the day at a press conference he attended with Las Vegas Sands President and Chief Operating Officer Mr. Robert G. Goldstein and Sands China Ltd. President Dr. Wilfred Wong. The press conference was moderated by Mr. Ron Reese, senior vice president of global communications and corporate affairs for Las Vegas Sands.Tuesday night’s opening celebration included pyrotechnics and a lightshow at The Parisian Macao’s half-scale authentic recreation of the Eiffel Tower, now a prominent feature on the Cotai skyline.

prepared every 10 years that are meant to guide NASA’s investments The most recent earth science survey out earlier this year endorsed NASA’s existing plans including the endangered missions And although Bridenstine cannot comment on what next year’s budget proposal will look like he’s aware of this endorsement he said citing CLARREO and PACE by name "It seems to me that those will be projects that need to be considered in the president’s budget request to fund" Bridenstine said By the start of the next budget cycle in early 2019 he added the OCO-3 should be launched into space for mounting onto the International Space Station "It’s going to be off the table" He was less committed to the Earth-facing instruments of the Deep Space Climate Observatory which has long been an object of derision among Republicans given that it was born from an idea of former Vice President Al Gore But he noted the mission’s operating budget is small a few million dollars a year "I would imagine that we can cover that by other ways" he said without noting an exact plan "I think they all could end up in good shape" Bridenstine’s embrace of these missions goes hand-in-hand with his evolution on climate change turning from an occasional critic of the scientific consensus to a supporter of the realities of human-driven global warming "I want to be clear" he said "I do believe that carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas—over 400 parts per million at this point which is greater volumes than we’ve seen before And that’s because of human activity" Although CMS has ended other climate-related missions under development are continuing he noted such as the Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation a laser ranger to study forests and GeoCarb which will make geostationary measures of carbon flows in the Western Hemisphere next decade "We spend over $100 million dollars annually … on carbon monitoring at NASA" Bridenstine said "We’re committed to that And I’m committed to that" One concern for Bridenstine since taking NASA’s helm has been the agency’s beleaguered astrophysics division with news that its troubled flagship the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) would once again be delayed until 2020 and could possibly blow through a congressionally set $8 billion budget cap The agency’s independent review is not ready to say if that threshold will be exceeded Bridenstine said However even if it is he will work with Congress to get the telescope reauthorized—"no small task" he added "I’m committed to the mission … And when I testify to Congress I’m going to encourage them to be committed to this mission We’ve gone a very long way now and at this point the science that we’re going to get back from the James Webb is sufficiently important that we need to finish the project" Such flagship missions as the JWST and its successor the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) do take a toll when they get delayed and chew up budgets a factor that’s on his mind "What science are we not doing because we’re continuing to deliver on the James Webb Space Telescope And that’s going be a significant cost" The administration has proposed cutting the WFIRST a development Congress opposed And although NASA will follow Congress’s direction on the WFIRST it needs to think about how decisions about such large projects are made in the future Bridenstine said "There is hesitation going forward with another massive flagship mission like that when you could in many ways have smaller missions that are distributed or disaggregated if you will that can in some cases produce different types of science—but still groundbreaking science civilization-changing science … Then if one them or even a number of them go over cost or have schedule delays it doesn’t break the bank for all of the other missions" Bridenstine has also endorsed the administration’s focus on going back to the moon He says the advent of reusable rockets and the miniaturization of electronics among other advances will make this pivot sustainable unlike similar programs in the past while not derailing the goal of landing humans on Mars The lunar plan not yet financed by Congress would twin NASA’s science and exploration directorates and envisions a small fleet of "commercial" landers returning to the moon soon How soon "Aggressively next year" Bridenstine said "Definitely by 2020" Larger more capable rovers and landers would follow and ultimately astronauts Mars is still the end goal he added "I’ve heard people say that every dollar you spend going to the moon is a dollar you’re not spending going to Mars We do not want to go to Mars and have our astronauts be marshmallows on the surface of Mars That is not the goal We want them to survive We want them to thrive We want them to do science And the way to do that is to use the moon as a proving ground so that when we are landing on Mars we’re capable of doing those things" In 2020 NASA will launch its next SUV-size rover to the Red Planet to collect some 30 rock cores that will be cached on the surface Last year the agency’s associate administrator for science Thomas Zurbuchen proposed a nimble framework for returning these samples to Earth dubbed "skinny sample return" Bridenstine admitted he had not yet looked at the details of that plan but said "we’re committed to Mars sample return "I can tell you I put a lot of trust into Thomas Zurbuchen If he thinks it’s a good idea I probably think it’s a good idea too" Beyond NASA’s science portfolio Bridenstine reiterated the need to think about what to do with the International Space Station after 2025 (He has proposed some sort of commercialization) And he echoed support for the Space Launch System designed to put humans in space at least until there’s an acceptable viable commercial alternative that can deliver all its same capabilities It’s a lot of decisions for any one person to face which is one reason Bridenstine added a bit of good news near the end of the interview: He expects the White House to soon nominate a NASA deputy administrator something the 25-year-old illustrator says he spent a lot of time doing in his previous.

Wasicsko" Show Me a Hero premieres on Aug 16 on HBO Write to Eliza Berman at elizaberman@timecomWarning: This post contains spoilers for the sixth season of Game of Thrones For years fans have levied criticism against Game of Thrones’ treatment of women from the unnecessary frequent nudity to the graphic sexual assault of main characters After Sansa’s rape by Ramsay Bolton last year sent the Internet over the edge (and led some high profile fans to flee the show) the creators promised that this season would be the year of the women Last night they delivered on that promise with the long-awaited “Battle of the Bastards” though some of the victories came at the expense of logic Let’s review: Daenerys demonstrated the firepower of her dragons and plotted with Yara to break Westeros’ glass (iron) ceiling twice over And Sansa got to smile for the first time in years when she arrived to save the day with Littlefinger’s army and then again when Ramsay’s dogs ripped his face off In a show that loves to play with moral ambiguity these were objectively “good” events The writers kept things simple by sidelining the more ethically complicated female figuresCersei Margaery and Melisandre Instead they delivered our heroines Daenerys and Sansa Yara too has proven herself honorable by trying to save Theon when he was imprisoned by Ramsay and looks even better when contrasted with her crazed uncle The clear message: Women rule And let us pause for a second to say “Good” The show’s producers didn’t have to respond to the cacophony of criticism But they did Remember Sansa isn’t raped in the books and thus probably won’t be the one to kill Ramsay Her suffering and revenge is all the show’s creation While the events of the episode certainly did not justify last year’s rape scene or the way in which it was shot emphasizing Theon’s suffering as a witness rather than Sansa’s as a victim “Battle of the Bastards” did give Dany and Sansa the sorts of heroic moments that have largely been reserved for men on television But it felt a little forced Logic fell by the wayside in order for these moments to happen Did Dany and the Dothraki apparate to Meereen And wait the dragons could just break out of the cave all along Even if they broke out now because they sensed their mother and brother were home why didn’t they let themselves loose earlier to grab some grub The plot twist in Winterfell was even more problematic Why wouldn’t Sansa tell Jon about sending the raven to Littlefinger for help Some fans have floated theories Maybe she didn’t know Littlefinger was comingbut of course he was he’s in love with her Maybe she was bitter at Jon for not listening to her advicebut it doesn’t seem like throwing that fit is worth costing thousands of men their lives
