Celebrities Outraged By Findings Of Horse Abuse Investigation

first_imgMichael Keaton, Katherine Heigl and Willie Nelson have joined a growing list of celebrities calling on Congress to pass legislation to protect horses from an abuse known as “soring.”They reacted after a recent undercover investigation by The Humane Society of the United States revealed employees at a top training barn in Tennessee soring horses to force them perform the high-stepping “big lick” gait that is rewarded in competitions.“Video footage revealed abhorrent cruelty, including horses’ legs being slathered with caustic chemicals and wrapped tightly to cook the chemicals into their flesh, causing extreme pain,” reads the statement signed by the stars.The Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, H.R. 3268/S. 1121, is legislation to amend the existing federal law to ban the devices used in soring walking horses and related breeds, end the failed system of industry self-policing and strengthen penalties.“I urge Congress to pass the PAST Act and protect this gentle breed from animal cruelty carried out in the name of entertainment,” the statement continues.Other celebrities who previously signed on as endorsers of the PAST Act include Alyssa Milano, Viggo Mortensen, Ke$ha, Emmylou Harris, Kaley Cuoco, Ian Somerhalder, Wendie Malick and Priscilla Presley.last_img read more

TSX lower as Valeants stock drops on American investigation but loonie gains

TORONTO — Canada’s largest stock market weakened as shares in Valeant Pharmaceuticals, one of Canada’s most valuable companies, fell by 5.4 per cent after the company said it had been subpoenaed by U.S. federal prosecutors.The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index ended the day down 46.36 points at 13,828.97.Valeant was already in the crosshairs of U.S. politicians concerned about rising drug costs even before the company’s late Wednesday announcement that it is under scrutiny by U.S. federal prosecutors in two states.Canada’s largest drugmaker said the U.S. Attorney’s offices in Massachusetts and New York had issued subpoeanas seeking information on its drug pricing, distribution and patient assistance program.Valeant (TSX:VRX) ended trading down $12.35, or 5.4 per cent, at $216.73 on the Toronto Stock Exchange.The health care subsector was the biggest loser on the Toronto market, declining 1.6 per cent as Concordia Healthcare, one of Valeant’s smaller rivals, fell 7.4 per cent.John Stephenson, president and CEO of Stephenson and Co. Capital Management, said Valeant had gained market share in part through aggressive acquisitions and had funded its growth by raising the prices for its drugs.Drawing the attention of government and regulators makes it harder for the company to continue on that path, he said.“It’s clear the bloom is off the rose because this game, if you will, has run out of time,” he said.In New York, markets gained ground after positive news on jobless claims.The U.S. Labor Department said Thursday that the number of Americans seeking unemployment aid fell last week, matching the lowest level in 42 years.The Dow Jones average of 30 stocks closed up 217 points at 17,141.75, the broader S&P 500 index advanced 29.62 points to 2,023.86 and the Nasdaq index gained 87.25 points to 4,870.10.Stephenson said that despite the positive job numbers, recent indicators have shown a faltering American economy and make it less likely that the U.S. Federal Reserve will raise interest rates before the end of the year.“The fact that things look like the Fed may be on hold for some time is ultimately promising for markets,” he said.In the upside-down world of Wall Street, tepid growth in the American economy is a positive because the Fed won’t risk raising interest rates. Historically low rates near zero have been credited with helping provide the liquidity that has driven markets since the Great Recession.On the commodity markets, the December gold contract rose $7.70 to settle at US$1,187.50 an ounce, the November crude oil contract fell 26 cents to US$46.38 a barrel and the November contract for natural gas fell 6.5 cents to US$2.453 per thousand cubic feet. The loonie ended the day up 0.45 of a U.S. cent at 77.57 cents US after gaining more than half a cent on Wednesday.Stephenson said the Canadian dollar stands to benefit as America’s central bank seems poised to push its first interest rate rise since the 2008 recession further into the future. read more

Rameswaram fishermen call off strike over Lanka

Fishermen in Rameshwaram have decided to call off their indefinite strike and resume fishing after the Tamil Nadu government announced that all the 86 fishermen arrested by the Sri Lankan Navy on charges of poaching would be released on October 28, The Hindu newspaper reported.After the Tamil Nadu Fisheries department confirmed the news about the release of the fishermen, leaders of 11 fishermen associations met on Sunday and decided to call off the strike, P Sesu Raja, leader of a fishermen association said. Withholding the trawlers amounted to destroying the livelihood of the fishermen, as at least 40 fishermen and their families were dependent on one boat for eking out a living, he said. “Forty fishermen go jobless when a boat is confiscated,” he said. (Colombo Gazette) Thanking the State and Central governments for securing the release, a day after the fishermen launched the strike on Saturday and observed a day’s fast, he said the Sri Lankan government refusing to release the boats continued to be a cause of worry. The thirty-nine trawlers confiscated by the Sri Lankan Navy while arresting the fishermen from Ramanathapuram, Tuticorin, Nagapattinam and Pudukottai districts during September-October faced the danger of getting damaged as the north-east monsoon is around the corner, he said. read more

US consumer borrowing increased 205 billion in April helped by big gain

by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Jun 5, 2015 1:02 pm MDT Last Updated Jun 5, 2015 at 4:26 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email In this Thursday, June 4, 2015, photo, Jazmin Donati, left, hands a customer his credit card after making a sale at Panther Coffee, in Miami. The Federal Reserve releases its April report on consumer borrowing on Friday, June 5, 2015. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky) US consumer borrowing increased $20.5 billion in April, helped by big gain in credit cards WASHINGTON – Consumer borrowing surged again in April, helped by the largest gain in credit card borrowing in a year.Consumer borrowing expanded by $20.5 billion in April, the Federal Reserve reported Friday. That was down only slightly from a gain of $21.3 billion in March which was the biggest increase in eight months. The strong gains pushed consumer credit to a fresh record of $3.38 trillion.Borrowing in the category that includes credit cards jumped by $8.6 billion, the largest rise in 12 months. Borrowing in the category that covers auto and student loans advanced a solid $11.9 billion, after an even bigger $16.5 billion increase in March.Economists expect consumers, who have seen strong job gains over the past year, will keep borrowing and spending in coming months, helping to boost overall economic growth.The overall economy went into reverse during the January-March quarter, reflecting the adverse impacts from a harsh winter, cutbacks in investment by energy companies and a stronger dollar, which hurt U.S. export sales.The gross domestic product, the economy’s total output of goods and services, contracted at an annual rate of 0.7 per cent in the first quarter. But economists say it will rebound to growth of around 2 per cent to 2.5 per cent in the second quarter, helped by stronger consumer spending. The expectation is that consumer spending will be supported in coming months by continued strong growth in employment.The Fed’s monthly consumer credit report does not cover mortgages or any other loans secured by real estate such as home equity loans.The overall category is up 6.6 per cent from a year ago. The category that covers credit cards has risen 3.2 per cent in the past year while the category that includes auto and student loans is up a much stronger 7.9 per cent.Consumers’ use of credit cards to support their spending has lagged in the current recovery. Economists attribute that in part to the heavy job losses during the recession which made households more cautious about building up credit card debt. read more

10 free GBA games for 3DS Ambassadors announced

first_imgWhen Nintendo reduced the price so significantly soon after the launch of the 3DS, it was understandable they thought an apology was in order for early adopters who had already purchased the hardware. That apology came in the form of the 3DS Ambassadors program, which held the promise of 20 free downloadable games from the NES and GBA back catalog.The 10 NES games were made available back in August and included:Balloon FightDonkey Kong Jr.Ice ClimberMario Open GolfMetroidSuper Mario Bros.The Legend of ZeldaWrecking CrewYoshi’s EggZelda: Adventures of LinkNow it looks as though the 10 GBA games have been decided upon with Japanese gamers getting them first on December 16. The titles include:F-Zero: Maximum VelocityFire Emblem: The Sacred StonesLegend of Zelda: Minish CapKirby & The Amazing MirrorMario Kart: Super CircuitMario vs. Donkey KongMetroid FusionSuper Mario Advance 3: Yoshi’s IslandWario Land 4WarioWare, Inc.: Mega MicrogamesThat’s a pretty fantastic list in my opinion, and it makes me a little happier I picked up my 3DS early. Remember, Nintendo has stated many of these games may not see a general release for all 3DS owners. At the very least Ambassadors are going to have access to them long before everyone else.Who qualifies as a 3DS Ambassador was decided back in August, so the GBA titles should become available automatically when Nintendo decides to release them in the West. I expect an e-mail will be sent and your 3DS will prompt you to download them.Read more at NeoGAFlast_img read more

The Greeks are coming … with lots of brilliant wine

first_imgThe largest contingent of Greek winemakers ever to visit Australia arrives at the end of June to showcase the newest and most innovative wines from the world’s oldest winegrowing region.More than 20 winemakers, educators and grape-growers will visit Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide for a series of tastings, dinners and masterclasses that have previously only ever been held in the USA and Canada.The wines will be diverse – indigenous varieties and Greek expressions of international classics – from regions spanning the whole of Greece – from the Peloponnese through to Santorini and the islands. There will be more than 90 wines showcasing the modern face of such an ancient winegrowing land. New Wines of Greece president Yannis Voyatzis said this visit was the first time such a large group of Greek winemakers and representatives had visited Australia together.“This visit to Australia is about educating Australian trade about our wines, and showcasing the best we have to offer,” Mr Voyatzis said.“We’re looking forward to meeting and discussing our wines with a broad spectrum of the Australian trade, as well as catching up with some familiar faces. “Even though we have thousands of years of wine production experience, the Greek wine industry is still evolving and the wineries attending will be showcasing a selection of their best wines, with a focus on the country’s indigenous varietals.”The group from Greece will also be visiting the Yarra Valley, hosting some invitation-only dinners and getting a feel for Australia’s dynamic and increasingly open-minded wine culture.

Far Harbor is what Fallout 4 shouldve been all along

first_imgDownloadable content is often a shameless cash grab from a game’s publisher, but sometimes a DLC pack is so good that it surpasses the base game. Many Fallout fans consider the DLC Old World Blues to be much more entertaining than New Vegas‘ main quest line. Bethesda likes to brag that Fallout 4‘s new Far Harbor has the largest landmass of any of their DLC packs, but it’s more than just a huge chunk of new terrain. It is a section of the Fallout world that is filled with mysteries, and stuffed with conflicts that go far beyond simple good versus evil dilemmas. The factions, and the many secrets that motivate them, form a narrative that upstages Fallout 4′s central story.A problem with the main quest in Fallout 4 was that players were pushed into choosing one faction, then annihilating one or more of other factions (sometimes all three rival factions). Players who tried to find peaceful resolutions to the Commonwealth’s problems often got railroaded into antagonizing their former allies, and got stuck with missions that forced them to blow up the home base of people that they would rather try to negotiate with. Far Harbor does give players the option of just killing one faction for a quick resolution, however there are many other paths to peace.Far Harbor is set on an island, far from the Commonwealth and the squabbling of mainland politics. The islanders have lived mostly at peace with each other in the centuries following the war. Mainland factions like the Brotherhood, the Railroad, the Minutemen, and even the Institute have little to no influence on the people of Far Harbor.The real threat they face is a unique, mysterious fog that rolls through the island. The fog itself is radioactive, but the true menace is the monsters that live inside it. At the time the story begins, the fog has enveloped all but a small section of the docks by the harbor.The only thing that keeps this community alive are devices called “fog condensers.” These were created by a community of runaway synths that set up shop in an abandoned observatory in the middle of the island. These synths live in peace with the humans who live on the docks. However, as the Sole Survivor investigates the island, they will learn that this peace is built on a bedrock of lies.Further complicating matters is that the radiation-loving cultists, The Children of Atom, have come to Far Harbor and set up a temple in an atomic submarine. These zany cultists could have been nothing more than the designated antagonist faction of the story, but Far Harbor’s narrative structure makes all three of groups sympathetic to some degree. Many of the missions for The Children of Atom involve these characters questioning their faith, or trying to leave the church altogether. Murdering them all for a quick quest complete isn’t an easy choice.The other two factions have their own nuances. Acadia, the synth community, is led by an ancient synth who has lost his memories of his past deeds on the island. Holding him accountable for long-forgotten actions is both a moral and legal quandary. Players also have to ask themselves if they consider synths to be human, subhuman, or superior to humans. There is even dialog where the Sole Survivor can question whether or not they were replaced by a synth before emerging from their cryopod at the start of the game!Even the humble fishermen on the docks have some deep dark secrets that could tear the town apart. Players can help them avoid overt war with The Children, but then cause the town to fall apart if these hidden sins are revealed.In a way, the fog itself is a fourth faction. Although the fog has no conscious agenda, the other factions are defined by how they react to it. Is it something to be controlled, stopped, or simply endured? Each faction has their own view.Far Harbor’s various groups exist in an uneasy peace, but this won’t last for long. The Children of Atom have found a way to increase the fog that threatens the other humans on the island. Unless the Player intervenes, the fog will inevitably overrun all of Far Harbor. Some of the townsfolk at the Harbor want to just wipe out the Children of Atom. Meanwhile, the synths of Acadia remain neutral in this conflict, but they could easily help either side eradicate the other.However, the choice isn’t a simple coin flip where the player picks one side then kills off who they decide are the bad guys. These conflicts have deep roots, and players who investigate all of the clues and side quests will find options to resolve things peacefully. Unfortunately, these peaceful solutions often involve making moral compromises, and allowing secrets to remain buried. Choosing the peaceful option won’t necessarily feel like the morally correct thing to do. Being honest can likewise lead to grave consequences that will make players wish they’d let sleeping dogs lie.The story and content for Far Harbor is not entirely self-contained on the island. It begins when the Sole Survivor and Nick Valentine get a new case at Nick’s detective agency. There’s a brief mission on the mainland, after which a boat becomes available and players can use it to travel to and from Far Harbor at any time.Nick is integral to this first mission, of course, but he also figures heavily into the synth storyline of Far Harbor. Players can bring along whatever companion they want, but having Nick there will reveal hidden depths to the story (and access to items that can only be gained when Nick is the companion). It also resolves some plot threads about Nick’s past that were never answered in Fallout 4‘s base game.There is also a new companion in the DLC, Old Longfellow. He’s a salty seaman who was raised on the island, and is now a grizzled, old survivalist who leads people through the most dangerous parts of the island. He comes in handy when exploring new territory, often providing lore on the places and characters. He can be brought back to the mainland to share adventures in the Commonwealth as well.There is a treasure trove of new weapons, clothing, armor, and food. The harpoon gun that was discovered in the game’s code long ago is now available, but it does not allow underwater combat. There is also a refreshing new beverage called Vim! It’s the poor man’s Nuka-Cola, but it’s craftable and players can learn to make a variety of power-ups using Vim as a component. Much like Sunset Sarsaparilla from New Vegas, it implies that different parts of the Wasteland had their own local rival to the Nuka-Cola beverage empire.Far Harbor even makes some attempts at altering the settlement system. There are a handful of new settlements around the island, and these need the fog condensers to keep creatures from attacking. Occasionally, the condensers will breakdown at a settlement, leading to an attack of powerful monsters. Players have to run around the settlement repairing the devices, while fighting off fog beasts.The game still shackles players with maintaining settlements back on the mainland, even when the Sole Survivor is at Far Harbor. As they explore an exotic new land on a mysterious new adventure, they will occasionally have to drop everything and go back to save Blake Abernathy from molerats, or lay down extra sleeping bags for the newest settlers at the Red Rocket.Far Harbor also has a bizarre virtual reality sequence that is part Minecraft and part tower defense. Players have to move boxes and gun turrets around VR mazes to solve puzzles and defend helpless little VR creatures. It’s more of a nuisance than a genuine challenge, but it’s clearly an attempt to expand on the defense aspects of the settlement system. When building settlements in the main game, players don’t need to put much thought into where defenses are placed as long as the total defense score is high enough. With the levels in this VR sequence, the placement of defenses is vital to success. This VR level might be a hint that future updates or DLC will bring a more strategic, tower defense mechanic to settlements.Far Harbor is worth its sizable price tag. It adds up to 20 hours of play to the game for people who thoroughly explore the island. The nautical-themed weapons, armor, and food are fun new toys to play with while adventuring on the mainland. However, the greatest value of this DLC is the story. This is a return to the more intricate form of storytelling from the previous Fallout games. Players who take the time to get to know each faction will find themselves facing some difficult choices when the adventure comes to it climax. Far Harbor is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It is available with the season pass, or for $24.99 as a stand alone purchase.last_img read more
