first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – Ruby Rose has played some dangerous characters, like an inmate in “Orange Is the New Black” and a scientist battling a prehistoric shark in “The Meg.” But the actress herself is now officially dangerous.Cybersecurity firm McAfee on Tuesday crowned Rose the most dangerous celebrity on the internet. No other celebrity was more likely to land users on websites that carry viruses or malware.Reality TV star, Kristin Cavallari finished behind Rose at No. 2, followed by actress Marion Cotillard (No. 3), the original “Wonder Woman” Lynda Carter (No. 4), actress Rose Byrne (No. 5), Debra Messing (No. 6), reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian (No. 7), actress Amber Heard (No. 8), morning TV show host Kelly Ripa (No. 9), and actor Brad William Henke as No 10.Rose is a model and MTV VJ who may have gotten a burst of online interest when she was named to play Batwoman on an upcoming CW series.The survey is meant to highlight the danger of clicking on suspicious links. McAfee urges internet users to consider risks associated with searching for downloadable content and always apply updated security fixes. The company used its own site ratings to compile the celebrity list and used searches on Google, Bing and Yahoo.“In our hyper-connected world, it’s important for consumers to think before they click to be sure that they are landing on safe digital content and protecting themselves from cybersecurity threats that may be used to infect their devices or steal their identity,” writes Gary Davis, chief consumer security evangelist at McAfee. “So whether you’re looking up what Ruby did on the latest ‘Orange is the New Black’ episode, or what Kristin Cavallari wore the latest awards show, make sure you’re searching the internet safely.”Rose deposes last year’s most dangerous celeb, Avril Lavigne. That top 10 also included Bruno Mars, Carly Rae Jepsen, Zayn Malik, Celine Dion, Calvin Harris, Justin Bieber, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Katy Perry and Beyonce.Musicians on the latest list took a hit. Adele was the highest ranked musician at No. 21 followed by Shakira at No. 27. Diddy, who finished at No. 9 in 2017, fell to No. 76.___Mark Kennedy is at read more

TORONTO — Another chapter in the Conrad Black story begins Friday in Toronto.Canadian authorities are scheduled to begin proceedings against the former media tycoon, who has already spent time in a Florida jail following U.S. convictions on related matters, which occurred more than a decade ago.Thursday the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission announced a settlement with Black that ends a long-standing lawsuit over Black’s dealings as the head of the Hollinger media empire. Black agreed to pay US$4.1 million in restitution and is banned from acting as a director of a U.S. company.The SEC deal clears the way for the Ontario Securities Commission, Canada’s major securities regulator, to proceed with a similar case against Black and two other former Hollinger executives, alleging that the then-directors of the company created a scheme to use the sale of several newspapers to divert proceeds from Hollinger to themselves.The OSC alleges directors and officers of Hollinger Inc. and Hollinger International — including Black — engaged in “a scheme” to line their pockets with company proceeds through a complicated system of “non-competition”’ payments.The regulator wants to ban Black from buying or trading in securities and from becoming a director of a public company in Ontario.A source close to the well-known businessman and author — who has been the subject of a television movie and numerous books — says Black isn’t expected to attend Friday’s hearing.James Morton, a Toronto lawyer who has followed Black’s case, has said his lawyers will likely argue that the matters before the Ontario Securities Commission have already been covered by the American authorities.Black has tenaciously battled against the multitude of allegations brought against him, frequently obtaining at least partial victories.Of the many criminal charges levelled against him by the U.S. Justice Department, a jury convicted him of only four after a lengthy trial in Chicago. Eventually, only two of those convictions survived years of appeals — one count of fraud and one count of obstruction of justice.Black ended up serving 37 months out of a 42-month sentence in a Florida prison, and was fined US$125,000. read more

Thad Matta addresses the media for the final time as head coach at Ohio State on June 5, 2017. Credit: Courtesy of 97.1 The FanMy junior year of high school, I had just wrapped up a day tour at Ohio State and was literally about to pass out on a couch in the Union. My dad shook me awake and loudly whispered “Brian, that’s Thad Matta!” as Matta walked past with Bobby Knight. I had no idea that 18 months later I’d be starting a four-year term working under him as a student manager from the 2013-14 season through his final season in 2016-17. A phrase that I remember being thrown around a lot as an underclassman in the program was “great player, better person.” Substituting “player” for “coach,” the phrase couldn’t be more true for Coach Matta. He always wanted not just what was best for the team, but what was best for the individuals, as both players and men, and during some of the tougher stretches, the pain he felt from having let his team down as a coach was both visible and genuine. It’s rare to see anyone as invested in their profession as Coach Matta was in his teams and the state of the program. Everyone saw, and unfortunately quickly forgot, the huge success Coach Matta brought to the Ohio State men’s basketball program. Most people don’t get to see what he’s like off the court. Contrary to the occasional beet-red face sometimes seen on the sidelines, he’s actually one of the most laid-back individuals I’ve been with in a work environment. From addressing me by Brian about ten times per day the last week of my senior season after realizing my real name wasn’t “Chops,” which is what my nickname within the program was, to seamlessly transitioning from a regular conversation with me to a Chris Farley Saturday Night Live sketch dialogue, I’ll always appreciate Coach Matta’s wit. I don’t know if he will be back out on the hardwood again, but if not, I know, as he has told me on several occasions, he’s looking forward to living where “It’s never colder than 70 degrees, (he) never has to wear long pants and doesn’t have to put a shirt on before 5 o’clock.”Thanks, Coach.Brian Lamb, former Ohio State men’s basketball manager read more

first_imgAlloy Steel International says it “has developed the worlds best wear solutions for iron-ore processing. Arcoplate’s world patented manufacturing process guarantees hardness, micro-structure and surface finish of a far superior quality than any welded wear plate of similar composition. Field trials in iron ore processing show that in some cases Arcoplate will out perform welded wear plate of a similar metallurgical composition in terms of wear life up by up to eight times.“Arcoplate is used successfully and extensively in installations including apron feeders, pan feeders, crusher liners, conveyor skirt liners, transfer chutes, cyclones, reclaimer buckets, train load out chutes, and loader liners.Ore processing equipment that is subject to continuous sliding abrasion requires a product that will have the ability to withstand fine particle abrasion and gouging. QT steels are generally being used due to the low initial cost. However, those initial low cost savings with QT steels and weld type overlays are soon eroded through the high cost of down time and productivity losses.Arcoplate says it “has demonstrated over and over that 1 mm of Arcoplate thermal bonded high chromium super alloy will generally out perform conventional weld overlay by two times and quench and tempered steels by six times.last_img read more

IRELAND COACH JOE Schmidt has named a 34-man squad for the November internationals against Samoa, Australia and New Zealand, with Munster prop David Kilcoyne surprisingly left out.There are three uncapped players in the squad, with Leinster wing Dave Kearney, loose head prop Jack McGrath and Munster No. 8 James Coughlan all hoping to make their international bows this autumn.Andrew Trimble and Paul Marshall of Ulster have been omitted.Other names that hadn’t been particularly anticipated on the list are Tom Court and Devin Toner, but both men have been in strong form for Ulster and Leinster respectively. Iain Henderson (toe) and Donnacha Ryan (knee) both miss out due to recent injuries, while the likes of Stephen Ferris, Richardt Strauss, Tommy O’Donnell, Jordi Murphy and Simon Zebo had been ruled out previously.Speaking about his squad selection, Joe Schmidt said:“The squad combines players who have shown form in the domestic season mixed with those who have a proven record at international level.“As always there were some very difficult decisions. Some players have had limited opportunity to impress due to injury and others have performed very well and it was difficult to leave them out.“The Guinness Series will demand plenty from the squad and I know they’ll be motivated by the challenge.”last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Fourteen albums later, more than 150,000 CDs sold, DJ Krazy Kon has cemented himself as the Australian Greek CD compilation king. Recently debuting at number three on the Australian iTunes dance charts with his latest Greece 2014 Summer Sessions CD, Krazy Kon is still pinching himself. “We always chart in world music, being a Greek CD, but to make it in the biggest chart in Australia with names such as Ministry of Sound, Calvin Harris, Stereosonic, David Guetta and the likes, it’s awesome,” he tells Neos Kosmos. “That is 12 years of hard work right there.”The new CD, featuring the likes of Master Tempo, Giorgos Tsalikis, Kaiti Garbi, Elli Kokkinou and Thanos Petrelis took seven weeks to put together and mix, not to mention that at the same time Krazy Kon was dealing with nine record labels in Greece. The CD marries music genres like dance, laika, sirtotsiftetlia, zembekika, a signature style that keeps all ages happy.“We have a great demographic of people who buy my music, from 10-year-old kids to 70-year-old parents,” Krazy Kon says.“It’s a great mix for everyone.”While the CD has been consecutively popular, DJ Krazy Kon hasn’t rested on his laurels. He’s worked hard on penetrating bigger, more global markets. Firmly cemented in the Greek Australian demographic, for the last couple of years DJ Krazy Kon has been working on moving his brand overseas. “When we started this CD series 12 years ago we were happy just to release a few CDs throughout Australia,” he says.“Now the CD series is available in four countries – Australia, NZ, America and Canada – and it is also available worldwide on iTunes, so we are getting sales from all over the world including the UK, South Africa, and all across Europe.”The CD series is now a bi-annual event for Krazy Kon fans, and has translated into tickets sales when he tours the compilation around Australia. Currently the DJ is taking one of the featured artists on the CD around Australia for a national tour. Breakout Greek dance group Master Tempo performed in Sydney on Friday with Krazy Kon by their side, and will play in Melbourne and Adelaide next week. It’s been a wild ride for Krazy Kon, who admits his expectations weren’t very high when starting the CD series.“I never expected that we would reach this level when I started,” he says.“There was no blueprint for this, it had never been done before. Now to be recognised worldwide, by record labels in Greece, by artists, managers and club owners is a strong thing.”He believes the continued success is partly thanks to the fact it has broken its niche market. It’s become a CD that people interested in the best of Southern Europe’s current music trends pick up.Over his 14 CDs, Krazy Kon has brought these tracks to a audience geographically detached, but also unknowingly has tracked the way Greek music and its industry has changed. “Greek music continues to evolve and change and we are moving with the times and in the right direction,” he says.The CDs have tracked the peaks and swells of artists, tracked popular trends and even paid thanks to the power of the Eurovision Song Contest.Krazy Kon defines his current mix as “very upbeat” and admits he has a soft spot for the Master Tempo track Xamos tha gini and Giorgos Tsalikis song Tha girise o trohos. DJ Krazy Kon’s new Greece 2014 Summer Series CD compilation is available online at (delivery across Australia) or from Metropolis Music Centre, Sounds Music Cafe (Sydney) // Oakleigh Music Centre, Caras Music (Melbourne) // Parthenon Emporium (Adelaide).

first_imgLess than two weeks before summer officially begins, Clark County could experience record high temperatures in the next few days.Temperatures could land above 90 degrees Tuesday and around 95 degrees Wednesday, said William Ahue, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. The local record for Tuesday is 99 degrees, while the high-water mark for Wednesday is 94 degrees.Highs near 80 degrees Sunday were caused by a patch of high pressure hovering over the area combined with winds coming from the east, Ahue said. Conditions directly contrast cooler temperatures last week, caused by low pressure and westerly winds, which are cooler since they come from the Pacific Ocean.The patch of high pressure will strengthen over the next couple of days, causing the increased heat, Ahue said. He noted that the typically significant evening cool down will be less obvious Tuesday night, when lows are expected to be around 65 degrees.Effects of the heat will be felt most heavily in urban areas, Ahue said. “Generally, the more concrete and buildings you have in your area, the warmer it will feel.”The heat will begin to taper off Thursday, according to the weather service.While fire danger is not significantly more potent than normal, wildfires remain a possibility, Ahue said. “It’s definitely something we’re going to be monitoring. We’ll see how the area responds to the warmer weather today and tomorrow.”last_img read more

first_img Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech Suits Stay on target If you were looking forward to an abundance of new AAA games in April then you might feel disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, there are some blockbusters to be found this month, but they are few and far between. Most of April’s biggest offerings come in the form of remasters or re-releases. While this is a bummer for some, players who didn’t play some of these titles will indeed have something new to play. Like I always say during relatively dry months, you can use this time to clear out your backlog.Mortal Kombat 11Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox OneRelease date: April 23Fighting game enthusiasts are no doubt hyped about Mortal Kombat 11. If you checked out my preview, then you’ll know this game has everything fans love about the series. I haven’t played a Mortal Kombat title since MK3 so I’m eager to jump into the latest entry to get a sense of how the series has evolved. I’m looking forward to seeing all the fatalities since those finishing moves are always so ridiculously hilarious.AdChoices广告Pre-order Mortal Kombat 11 on AmazonDays GonePlatforms: PlayStation 4Release date: April 26Sony’s big April exclusive is the zombie-filled Days Gone. While I’m usually a fan of Sony’s first party offerings, I’m still on the fence about Days Gone. I’ve been over the whole zombie thing for years now and don’t exactly relish the thought of playing yet another walking corpse simulator. With that said, I’m interested to see just how many undead fiends can fill the screen at once. Hopefully the game wins me over the way the original The Last of Us did.Pre-order Days Gone on AmazonWorld War ZPlatforms: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: April 16Speaking about zombies, there’s a World War Z game coming out. Players must survive against zombie hordes in locations such as New York City, Tokyo, and Jerusalem. With six available classes, a team of up to four players can choose which classes compliment each other best in order to survive. Procedurally generated enemies and items should keep play sessions dynamic (and conjure memories of Left 4 Dead). Again, it’s hard to drum up excitement for a zombie game these days, but surely World War Z has to be better than the Brad Pitt movie, no?Pre-order World War Z on AmazonDangerous DrivingPlatforms: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: April 09Burnout is my all-time favorite racing game franchise, so a title from some of its developers is something right up my alley. Dangerous Driving is Burnout in everything but name. This means high-speed races where crashing into opponent vehicles is just as important as entering first place.

Interestingly enough, players need to play Cuphead through Xbox Live even though it’s on Switch. The cool thing about that is users can unlock achievements. Since I’m a massive Cuphead fan, I’m looking forward to replaying it.Pre-order Cuphead on the Nintendo Game StoreSuper Meat Boy ForeverPlatforms: Android, iOS, Linux, PC, Switch, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: AprilWhile on the subject of tough platformers, we can’t overlook Super Meat Boy Forever. This is an interesting title since it was originally supposed to be mobile-only. Though it’s now on multiple systems, it still retains its mobile game DNA due to it being an auto-runner. That fact might dissuade you from trying out Super Meat Boy Forever. Trust me, I get that. However, designer Tommy Refenes, ensures the series’ legendary level of difficulty remains intact. I’m not a fan of auto-runners (or mobile games) myself but I’m willing to give this one a shot.Pre-order Super Meat Boy Forever on SteamBorderlands: Game of the Year EditionPlatforms: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: April 03Last week, Gearbox Software announced the long-delayed Borderlands 3.

Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition will sport high-resolution graphics and even have some quality of life improvements such as the mini map from Borderlands 2. I’ve never played Borderlands but I understand it (and its sequel) is quite popular.

This includes: A-Jax (Typhon), Gradius, Gradius 2, Haunted Castle, Life Force, Scramble, Thunder Cross, and TwinBee.

first_img More information: Role of the Bering Strait on the hysteresis of the ocean conveyor belt circulation and glacial climate stability, PNAS, Published online before print April 9, 2012, doi: 10.1073/pnas.1116014109AbstractAbrupt climate transitions, known as Dansgaard-Oeschger and Heinrich events, occurred frequently during the last glacial period, specifically from 80–11 thousand years before present, but were nearly absent during interglacial periods and the early stages of glacial periods, when major ice-sheets were still forming. Here we show, with a fully coupled state-of-the-art climate model, that closing the Bering Strait and preventing its throughflow between the Pacific and Arctic Oceans during the glacial period can lead to the emergence of stronger hysteresis behavior of the ocean conveyor belt circulation to create conditions that are conducive to triggering abrupt climate transitions. Hence, it is argued that even for greenhouse warming, abrupt climate transitions similar to those in the last glacial time are unlikely to occur as the Bering Strait remains open. This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. The team began with evidence of wildly fluctuating temperature extremes in the northern hemisphere that occurred during a portion of the last big Ice Age. During that time, temperatures rose and fell in Greenland as much as 10°C over just a period of a few years. This, the team theorized, happened because glaciers in the northern hemisphere grew to such a size that ocean levels dropped sufficiently to cause a land bridge to appear between Siberia and Alaska, cutting off flow between the Arctic and Pacific oceans.To find out if their theory was correct, they turned to a heavy-duty global computer simulation where they first ran data to show conditions with a land bridge in place cutting off the Pacific Ocean from the Arctic, and then with the Strait open as it is today. Their simulation backed up their theory which goes like this: When a land bridge appears, cold fresh water from melting glaciers is unable to flow into the Pacific, so instead, it overflows into the Atlantic Ocean. And that creates a problem because normally the AMOC causes cycling of warm water from the south to flow north, and cold water from the north to flow south. The engine for this system is cold salt laden water in the north sinking beneath incoming warm water. If the cold water in the north is fresh, as it would be if it were coming from the melted glaciers, then it wouldn’t sink and the whole AMOC system would stop. And if it stopped, air temperatures could change quickly. The computer simulation actually showed the same temperature fluctuations over Greenland as researchers have found, via core ice samples, occurred the last time the Strait closed during the last Ice Age.In contrast, the computer simulation showed much more stable temperatures in the absence of a land bridge allowing glacial melt to flow into the Pacific Ocean. This the team concludes, means we don’t have to worry about wildly fluctuating temperatures any time soon, so long as the Strait remains open, which virtually everyone agrees will be the case for the foreseeable future as global warming is expected to lead to warmer water and rising ocean levels. ( — A diverse group of climate researchers has found after running computer simulations that the strait that separates North America and Russia might be serving as a global temperature stabilizer. This, they write in their paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, is because when the strait is blocked, melting glacial freshwater in the Arctic Ocean can’t make its way to the Pacific, causing it to back up and eventually flow into the Atlantic, disturbing the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) and eventually air temperatures.

first_img According to a recent Bloomberg article by Prashant Gopal, millennials are being pushed out of the housing market because Baby Boomers just wont sell—and this is causing issues between the two biggest generations in history.Fifty-three percent of U.S. owner occupied housing is currently taken up by people ages 55 and older, which is up from 43 percent since 2007. Millennials from 18 to 34 only make up 11 percent of the share. To put that in perspective, baby boomers inhabited almost double that amount when they were in the 18 to 34 bracket.Apparently, a big factor to this issue is public policy. According to Bloomberg, longer standing residents get property tax exemptions that keep them from moving. Additionally, zoning rules are keeping contractors from building apartments that are attractive to Baby Boomers or senior living facilities in other parts of town.“The system is gridlocked,” Dowell Myers, Professor of Urban Planning and Demography at the University of Southern California told Bloomberg. “The seniors aren’t turning over homes as fast as they used to, so there are very few existing homes coming online. To turn it over, they’ll have to have a landing place.”One looker in North Philadelphia has tried to find a home for over a year, but with no luck, has started to “cold call” in nearby neighborhoods. He has tried sheriff’s sales, bidding wars, and left many notes in people’s mailboxes. However, in these neighborhoods, people don’t want to budge unless there’s at least 7 digits sign next to the dollar sign.“It’s inevitable for me to be perceived as an outsider,” 23-year-old Jake Yanoviak said to Bloomberg. “But I’m not trying to change the community. I’m trying to contribute in positive ways and be a neighbor.”To find out more about Yanoviak and the current market, click here.

The riverside dual Spa Gazebo is the ultimate experience for indoor/outdoor treatments, with its panoramic views of the staggering rock formations and the endless reserve. An extraordinary mosaic panel has been designed for the spa by South African artist Jane Durand, using thousands of hand cut pieces of glass and porcelain that depict and honour the ‘Tree of Life’, and the unique abundance of the flora and fauna found in the Cederberg area, such as Protea, Fynbos flowers, grasses, chameleons, lizards, birds and insects.
