Hubble Detects Luminous Elliptical Galaxy in Space

first_imgStay on target The Hubble Space Telescope’s Messier catalog shows some of the most breathtaking objects that can be observed from our planet’s Northern Hemisphere, including a bright elliptical galaxy that might be a newborn star hub.Known as NGC 4621 (Messier 59), this galaxy is featured in the deep-sky objects catalog put together by French comet-hunter Charles Messier in the 18th century, however, Johann Gottfried Koehler, a German astronomer, is credited for finding the galaxy right before Messier listed it in 1779, said a NASA press release.According to modern observations, Messier 59 is classified as an elliptical galaxy, one of the three main types of galaxies including irregulars and spirals. Out of the trio, ellipticals tend to be the oldest and filled with ancient, red stars that show little signs of new star formation. Unlike other elliptical galaxies, Messier 59 might be on a whole new level: Astronomers say the galaxy shows signs of star formation, since there are some newborn stars that are present in a disk near the heart of Messier 59.Do you follow trends — or do you break them?This galaxy — Messier 59 — is an elliptical galaxy. Ellipticals tend to be full of old, red stars. Messier 59, however, breaks this trend, w/ some newborn stars residing near the core in this @NASAHubble image: https://t.co/mTvKMZpb5g pic.twitter.com/Tlpfu0ijt0— NASA (@NASA) June 2, 2019Messier 59 is positioned roughly 50 million light-years away from Earth and it’s located in the 2,000-strong Virgo cluster of galaxies in the constellation of Virgo. At the center of Messier 59, there’s a supermassive black hole, which is around 270 million times as big as the sun. According to NASA, the best time of year to spot it is in May, even though there isn’t much of a detail difference between observing it with smaller or larger telescopes.More on Geek.com:NASA Fits 265,000 Galaxies Into Single ‘Hubble Legacy Field’ ImageHubble Spots Stunning Spiral Galaxy 30 Million Light-Years AwayNew Hubble Measurements Confirm Universe Is Expanding at a Faster Rate Watch: Here’s What It’s Like to Fly Through the Orion NebulaHubble Spots Stunning Spiral Galaxy 30 Million Light-Years Away last_img read more

New election laws in effect for Tuesdays primary

first_imgOLYMPIA — Next week’s primary election doesn’t have any statewide races for voters to contend with, but it will be the first one where same-day voter registration, automatic registration and pre-paid postage are all in effect in Washington state.On Tuesday, more than 360 local races across the state will be on the primary ballot, ranging from city council races and school director races to two legislative seats where recent appointees face primary challenges as they seek election to a full term.Under a law passed last year — but which took effect June 30 — Washington residents can register to vote in person at a county auditor’s office or elections office up until 8 p.m. the night of an election.And since July 1, qualified residents who aren’t currently on the voter rolls but apply for or renew an enhanced driver’s license are automatically registered to vote. Under that law, which was passed last year but took effect in time for this year’s primary, those who apply for or renew an enhanced driver’s license or identification card — which require citizenship verification — need to opt out in order to not have their information sent to the secretary of state’s office and county auditors for registration. People who register for the state’s health benefit exchange are also now able to opt in for voter registration.The state’s more than 4.4 million registered voters started receiving their ballots in the mail weeks ago for the top two primary, in which the top two vote-getters advance to the November ballot, regardless of party. Washington is an all-mail-ballot state and ballots must be postmarked or deposited in local drop boxes by 8 p.m. Tuesday.last_img read more

Evergreen Public Schools unanimously adopts budget

first_imgEvergreen Public Schools adopted a $634,770,323 budget for the 2019-2020 school year on Tuesday, bringing to a close months of discussion over how to balance the district budget.The district’s board unanimously adopted a budget that includes a $385,274,032 general fund, which includes staff salary and benefits, and $210,562,237 in capital construction projects, the vast majority of which is funded by voter-approved school bonds.The district’s general fund expenses grew by about $16.5 million over last year, though the overall budget is about $21.8 million less than last year’s due to declines in the district’s projected capital expenses for the upcoming school year.The budget reflects about $11 million in budget cuts to bring expenses in line with district revenue. Evergreen, like other districts in Clark County and across the state, faced a budget deficit this year in light of increasing labor costs, declining enrollment and changes to the state school funding formula.“It was a challenging year, budget-wise, not just for Evergreen, but for everyone that works in a school district in the state of Washington,” Superintendent Mike Merlino said.last_img read more

Low water levels lead to reservoir closures

first_imgLow water levels in the Lewis River watershed are starting to affect boaters.PacifiCorp last week announced that boat ramps at Saddle Dam Park, Cougar Park and Beaver Bay on Yale Reservoir will be closed until further notice.Signs are posted at the closed boat ramps.The ramp at Yale Park is open and provides boat access to the reservoir. Boat launches on Merwin and Swift reservoirs also are open.Low snowpack and below-average spring rain means water coming into reservoirs managed by PacifiCorp is below normal for this time of year.Reservoir levels, even without this year’s conditions, are subject to available inflows and downstream flow requirements for fish and aquatic habitat.While reservoir levels always fluctuate, PacifiCorp said it recognizes the importance of recreational sites and the need to balance access with environmental requirements.last_img read more

Ibrahimovic picks his favourites for World Cup

first_imgZlatan Ibrahimovic will be attending this summer’s World Cup in a partnership with Visa’s FOMO (“Fear Of Missing Out”) campaign and the Swedish superstar named his favourites for glory at RussiaThe LA Galaxy forward had been teasing his possible involvement at the World Cup earlier this year, amid speculation that he was set to make a comeback for Sweden after retiring from international duty at the end of Euro 2016.However, Ibrahimovic’s name was not included when Sweden finally announced their final 23-man squad.Since then the 36-year-old announced his partnership with the American multinational financial service Visa and will be attending the World Cup as part of the collaboration.In an interview with the official FIFA website, Ibrahimovic was asked to name who he feels will be the most likely contenders for the World Cup at Russia.Lionel Messi, Paul PogbaPaul Pogba has spoken to Lionel Messi over his future Andrew Smyth – September 10, 2019 Manchester United star Paul Pogba had a chat with Lionel Messi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Zinedine Zidane and many others over his future, says his brother.“I pick the Visa team because we are the biggest favourite to win, and then I will give you other teams that have a possibility to win: I think Brazil, Spain, Germany, obviously Sweden. Argentina also, even if they don’t want to speak about themselves as favourites: they are. I am sorry the US is not in the World Cup because that’s my new country where I live, and I would support them also,” he said.The former Manchester United forward is certain that Sweden deserves to be considered among his favourites at the World Cup.“They beat some big nations to reach the World Cup, so let’s see. Everything is exciting and new. You never know what will happen. It’s all about the moment. Whoever is best at the moment is the one that will do well,” said Ibrahimovic.Ibrahimovic scored 62 goals in 116 games for his country before retiring at the end of Euro 2016.last_img read more

We’re so excited do you have an indie bookstore in our community. I made good friends with the owner through Ocean Beach” said Rita who came in with her young son.It’s been a lifelong dream for owner Marianne Reiner who lives In the neighborhood.“Anything you don’t see on the shelves we can easily order for you most books are available within 24 hours to 48 hrs” said Reiner.Years ago when big bookstore chains started opening up and when Amazon first started selling books online, small mom-and-pop stores were literally “running for cover.” These businesses were closing down due to lack of sales.But things are changing. In the past few years, more independent book stores are opening up in the middle of neighborhoods like this one in Ocean Beach on Voltaire street.However here, Run for Cover has a whole new meaning.“I just love the idea of running for cover under the book cover and reading and being cozy with a book at home or anywhere you want to be reading. I think people are really craving some community place where they can have an exchange with people and meet other readers and meet their neighbors” said Reiner.Creating a culture of community is exactly what’s happening inside.“Being able to connect with people about book stories adventure fantasy imagination is such a beautiful thing and I’m so grateful to be a part of it” said one Ocean Beach resident.Here, you’ll find all sorts of new books, not to mention delicious coffee and treats.Reiner hopes to be in business a long time. “Local businesses bring a lot to a community that not only hire local people but they bring money back to the community and if you buy from us you keep us here.” Updated: 8:33 PMcenter_img Independent bookstores are making a comeback in Ocean Beach October 9, 2018 Elizabeth Alvarez, last_img read more

Bank of England proposes changes to bonus buyout rules

Bank of England proposes changes to bonus buyout rules

first_imgThe Bank of England has laid out proposals that would enable bankers’ bonuses to be revoked after they have moved employer.At present, employers can compensate a new employee for remuneration they would have received from their previous employer in a practice known as buy-outs. When a new employer buys out a new employee’s cancelled bonus from their previous employer, the individual becomes  insulated against the possibility of this being subject to malus or clawback, enabling them to effectively avoid accountability for any previous actions.Under the Bank of England’s proposals, buy-outs would be managed through the contract between the new employer and employee.This contract would allow for malus or clawback should the employee be found guilty of misconduct or risk management failings with their previous employer.However, the new employer would be able to apply for a waiver if they believe the previous employer’s determination was unfair or unreasonable.The proposed changes to bonus buy-outs aim to establish greater alignment between risk and reward, while ensuring that buy-outs do not undermine malus and clawback rules.Andrew Bailey, deputy governor at Prudential Regulation and chief executive officer at the Prudential Regulation Authority, said: “Having the right incentives is a crucial part of an effective accountability regime. Remuneration policies that lead to risk-reward imbalances, short termism and excessive risk taking undermine confidence in the financial sector.“Individuals should be held accountable for their actions and not be able to actively evade the consequences of their actions. Today’s proposals seek to ensure that individuals are not rewarded for bad practice or wrong-doing and should help to encourage a culture within firms where reward better reflects the risks being taken.”Alexandra Beidas, employment and incentives partner at Linklaters, added: “If these proposals are introduced it won’t be possible for someone to wipe the slate clean by changing jobs.“Where an individual moves bank and forfeited awards are bought out by their new employer, those new buy out awards will be forfeit if the person is found to have misbehaved or committed a material error in their former job.“It remains to be seen if this will be workable in practice because it will involve sharing potentially sensitive information between banks.”last_img read more

Viewbank Dairy breaches holiday pay requirements

Viewbank Dairy breaches holiday pay requirements

first_imgNew Zealand’s Employment Relations Authority (ERA) has ordered Viewbank Dairy to pay a $7,500 penalty and to rectify employment law breaches discovered by the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment’s Labour Inspectorate.The Labour Inspectorate visited Viewbank Dairy as part of an audit to check for compliance with minimum employment standards on dairy farms.A number of breaches were identified and an improvement notice was issued. The Inspector brought the case before the ERA when the employer failed to comply with parts of the notice it was given.The breaches included treating some workers as casual employees when in fact they were permanent, which in turn led to holiday pay and minimum wage non-compliance.A number of employees had also either not been issued with individual employment agreements, or the organisation had failed to retain copies of those agreements.Viewbank Dairy was also found to have failed to keep accurate employment records and made deductions for accommodation from workers’ pay without written evidence that the deductions were specified and agreed to by the employees.The ERA determined that three breaches of legislation justified the imposition of penalties, two of which relate to the failure to keep proper records and one to the failure to issue and retain copies of employment agreements.In addition to the $7,500 penalty, Viewbank Dairy must repay money owed to workers.Stuart Lumsden, southern regional manager at the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s Labour Inspectorate, said: “As a result [of treating permanent employees as casual staff], employees were provided with incorrect holiday entitlements. They were getting paid 8% on top of their usual pay, when in fact they were entitled to four weeks’ holiday pay, pro-rated, under the Holidays Act 2003.“This is not an uncommon mistake and employers need to remember that the 8% arrangement is only lawful for employees who are on a fixed-term contract or who work irregularly or intermittently, for instance on-call workers. In all other cases the four weeks’ pro-rated rule applies.“Without accurate documentation the employer has no way of demonstrating that correct entitlements are provided to employees.”last_img read more

I Box Office Collection Day 2 Vikram Starrer Beats Bangalore Days in

first_img‘I’ posterI Movie/FacebookLooks like Vikram’s latest movie “I” is poised to conquer the Kerala box office. Reports suggest that the second-day collections of the movie in Kerala have surpassed the opening two-day gross of Malayalam movie “Bangalore Days” in the state.The movie has collected ₹2.52 crore taking the gross collection in the state to ₹5.57crore. The movie had collected ₹3.05 crore on the opening day.”#I continues to hold strong in Kerala on Day 2 -Jan 15. ₹2.52 cr gross. Total gross in 2 days – ₹5.57. #I 2 days gross in Kerala better than last year’s biggest Malayalam hit #BangaloreDays, opening 2 days gross!” tweeted industry expert Sreedhar PillaiMeanwhile, theatre reports from Kerala suggest that the successful run for the film would continue in the coming days as some of theatres in the state are running to packed houses.The movie had a massive opening at 225 screens. Some theatres had their show at 6am, exclusively for the members of Vikram fans association. This came as a disappointment to others who did not have membership in the association.Reports suggest that the movie has had nearly 1,170 houseful shows in the entire state — a first for any Tamil films. Industry insiders claim that mass publicity for the film has led to this kind of frenzy from the audience.Meanwhile, mass release if “I’ also has not gone down well with many in the industry. A section of the industry claims that the mass release of films like “I”, “Lingaa” and “Kaththi” has led to the postponing of many Malayalam movies like “Mili”, “Mariyam Mukku”, “Fireman” and “Picket 43”.This trend has led many to believe that release of big movies of other industry is dominating the small industry of Malayalam to an extent where they force postponing of release date of Malayalam cinema.last_img read more

first_imgGovt, UNDP sign deal to strengthen local govt institutions. Photo: UNDPThe government and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) on Tuesday signed an agreement for implementing a new local government (LG) project titled “Efficient and Accountable Local Governance (EALG)”.The project aims to further strengthen the capacities of local government institutions (LGIs) in the country and other stakeholders to foster participatory local development service delivery for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), said a press release of UNDP.Economic Relations Division (ERD) additional secretary Shamima Nargis and UNDP Bangladesh country director Kyoko Yokosuka signed the agreement on behalf of their respective sides at the planning commission in capital’s Sher-e-Bangla Nagar.Local Government Division (LGD) additional secretary Saurendra Nath Chakrabhatty also signed the agreement on behalf of the implementing agency, LGD.The USD 7.03 million project, funded by Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), Denmark through DANIDA and UNDP, will run for the next five years (July 2017 to June 2022).The signing of the project comes after the successful implementation of two flagship local government projects—Upazila Governance Project (UZGP) and Union Parishad Governance Project (UPGP), jointly funded by EU, SDC, DANIDA, UNDP and UNCDF.Those two projects have made significant progress in local government arena since 2011, making the LG system more participatory, proactive and pro-people, said the press release.Aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 7th Five Year Plan, the new project aims to further strengthen planning and budgeting system at Upazila and Union Parishads with SDGs orientation and localisation and pro-poor service-delivery mechanism.The project is expected to support the government to further strengthen downward accountability through effective and inclusive public engagement and will provide policy support for establishing effective local governments, according to the press release.Reaffirming the government’s commitment to make the local government system more efficient and accountable service-provider, Saurendra Nath Chakrabhatty said that the new project will help government to fulfil the “unfinished business” of the two successive LG projects by making the LGIs a real hub for service delivery to the people.Kyoko Yokosuka said the support will contribute to ensure delivery of services to the door steps of the community and leave no one behind.She also thanked the government and the development partners—SDC and DANIDA—for continuing their support in further strengthening the LGIs in Bangladesh.last_img read more

Photo: ReutersNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un is set to meet Russian president Vladimir Putin for the first time this week at a symbolic summit hoping to project himself as a serious world player but likely to come away without a relief from crushing sanctions he seeks.After his second summit with US president Donald Trump ended without an agreement two months ago, Kim’s meeting with Putin serves as a reminder to Washington that he has other options in the region backing his leadership.But while Kim is likely to seek more assistance from one of his country’s two main backers, Russia will be limited in what it can provide and the summit will focus more on demonstrating camaraderie than new investment or aid, analysts said.”When Kim meets Putin, he is going to ask for economic assistance and unilateral sanctions relaxation. Moscow is unlikely to grant his wishes,” said Artyom Lukin, a professor at Far Eastern Federal University in Vladivostok.That school’s campus is seen to be the summit venue, according to South Korean media which reported the presence of Kim’s top aides there making preparations for the event.”Being a veto-holding U.N. Security Council member, Moscow can hardly afford to undermine its authority even for the sake of friendship with Kim,” Lukin said.Sanctions ReliefWhile Russia says it fully enforces the sanctions that it voted to impose, it has joined China in calling for loosening punishment for North Korea in recognition of steps taken in limiting its weapons testing.”Steps by the DPRK towards gradual disarmament should be followed by the easing of sanctions,” Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov said at a Security Council meeting late last year, using the initials of the North’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.Washington has accused Russia of “cheating” on sanctions and said it has evidence of “consistent and wide-ranging Russian violations”.In February, Reuters reported a Russian tanker violated international trade sanctions by transferring fuel to a North Korean vessel at sea at least four times between October 2017 and May 2018.One Russian lawmaker told Interfax news agency last week that North Korea had asked Moscow to allow its labourers to continue to work in Russia despite sanctions requiring their expulsion by the end of this year.”One particularly sore area for Kim is the issue of North Korean labourers working in Russia,” said Anthony Rinna, a specialist in Korea-Russia relations at Sino-NK, a website that analyses the region.”Kim will probably be seeking some wiggle-room from Russia, although Moscow will be hard-pressed to accommodate Kim given its desire to portray a responsible image in the world.”The United States has said it believed Pyongyang was earning more than $500 million a year from nearly 100,000 workers abroad, including 30,000 in Russia.According to unpublished reports by Moscow to the United Nations Security Council, Russia sent home nearly two-thirds of its North Korean workers during 2018.The report, reviewed by Reuters, said in 2018 the number of North Koreans with work permits in Russia fell to about 11,500.Long TiesRussia-North Korea relations withered after the Soviet demise, with the loss of support from Moscow often cited as one factor that lead to a 1990s famine that killed hundreds of thousands of North Koreans.Kim Jong Un’s father, Kim Jong Il, worked to renew ties after Putin first became president in 1999. He visited Russia three times before his sudden death in 2011.Russia could agreed on some limited projects like a vehicle bridge connecting the two countries across the Tumangan River, or provide more humanitarian aid, Lukin said. Earlier this year, Russia sent more than 2,000 tons of wheat to North Korea through the World Food Programme. Russian lawmakers have suggested Moscow could send as much as 50,000 tons of wheat to North Korea.According to the United Nations, Russia has continued to sell significant amounts of oil to North Korea, though still officially under sanctions caps.North Korea’s state media said in March officials met in Moscow to sign an agreement “to boost high-level contact and exchange in the political field (and) actively promote cooperation in the fields of economy and humanitarianism.”While Moscow is unlikely to risk its authority at the United Nations by overtly breaching sanctions, Putin could promise not to support any additional sanctions, Lukin said.”Kim can expect a friendly reception here and probably some chance of getting political and economic support from Putin.”last_img

Watch 6 minutes of uninterrupted Watch Dogs gameplay

first_imgEdited game trailers and gameplay previews never give a true picture of how a game actually plays. They are typically setup to show the best bits and the game in a very good light. So anyone watching the development of Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs with interest will be glad to see an uninterrupted section of gameplay making its way on to YouTube.The video is taken from a longer preview Ubisoft offered some outlets last week and comes across as a GTA-like game, but with a heavy focus on technology. That’s no bad thing. Gun battles and car chases are present, but there seems to be more focus on stealthy takedowns, good use of the environment for moving around unnoticed, and of course, using technology for hacking, spying on people, information gathering, and generally progressing through the game.We also get to see how your character, Aiden Pearce, goes about purchasing goods including the technology and weapons he needs. There’s also the option to steal rather than buy goods, which is sure to have implications in the game as to how people react to you and your ongoing access to different types of store.So what we have here is a thinking man’s GTA. The visuals look stunning, but then they should as the test PC rig was setup to offer the same visuals as a PS4. The gameplay seems to cover the full spectrum of stealth gameplay right through to gun battles and car chases. Overall it makes Watch Dogs look very promising and certainly one to keep an eye on in the run up to its launch.The only negative is how long we have to wait for the game, with it not set to be released until November 19. Lets hope it doesn’t get lost in the marketing buzz surrounding the launch of the PS4 and next Xbox.Now read: Assassin’s Creed 4 launch date revealed through URL trickerylast_img read more
