12 immigrant workers at Trump golf course fired lawyer says

NEW YORK — A dozen immigrant workers at one of President Donald Trump’s golf clubs in New York who are in the U.S. illegally were fired this month even though managers knew about their legal status for years, a lawyer for the workers said Saturday.As the president railed against immigrants coming into the country illegally during the government shutdown, a manager at the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County called a dozen immigrant workers into a room one by one Jan. 18 and fired them, said lawyer Anibal Romero.Many of them had worked at the club for a dozen or more years, he said, and managers knew they had submitted phoney documents but looked the other way.The firings come after workers at another Trump club in New Jersey came forward last month to say managers there had hired them knowing they were in the country illegally, and had even helped one obtain phoney documents.The crackdown at the New York club was first reported by the Washington Post.A message seeking comment was left with the Trump Organization.Bernard Condon, The Associated Press read more

US has asked the federal court to throw out Huawei lawsuit

NEW YORK — The U.S. government filed a motion on Wednesday asking for the dismissal of a lawsuit by Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. that claimed the United States had acted illegally when it blacklisted Huawei’s products.Huawei sued the U.S. government in early March, in a complaint filed in federal court in Texas, saying that a law limiting its American business was unconstitutional.The company has been a component of the ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China that has hung over financial markets, with President Donald Trump recently agreeing to loosen restrictions on Huawei after meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Group of 20 summit.

British Museum goes digital to ease congestion at most popular exhibits

first_imgRosetta Stone “When you look into the future, digital will play a much bigger role when it comes to making people engage with the collections and taking people through it. The British Museum Currently, director Hartwig Fischer said, some 37 per cent of the world’s landmass is absent or underrepresented in the public gallery space.Asked about congestion in the galleries during peak times, he said staff hoped to use digital “suggestions of how to move” to bring about “better distribution” of guests inside the museum.“That’s obviously one of the tasks we have to tackle,” he said. “It’s one of the biggest collections in the world.“Certain areas will always be much visited. This is a very public and popular space. You will always, when you come here, have the privilege of being with others, which is wonderful. The British Museum Rosetta Stone “You will be able to understand much more precisely what people are looking for, where their special interest is, how much time they have, do they come with kids or without kids.”You will then be able to answer with a tailor-made suggestion as to where to go and perhaps take them to two or three other places they did not recognise.”To make them see what they want to see, and then make them see yet another thing.”center_img The mummy of the Ancient Egyptian Princess 'Tamut' at the British Museum The British Museum is developing “tailor-made” technology to combat congestion in its most popular galleries, as it works to lure visitors away from seeing just its star exhibits towards lesser-known items elsewhere.The museum is examining the tastes and decisions of its visitors, to develop technology which will match the artefacts they already want to see with similar items they did not know existed.The “tailor-made solution” will be designed to help tourists branch out from the Rosetta Stone, Parthenon sculptures and mummies, and utilise the less populated parts of its galleries.The research is part of long-terms plans for the gallery, which include opening the Reading Room for exhibitions and bringing more objects from the Americas and Polynesia out of storage. The mummy of the Ancient Egyptian Princess ‘Tamut’ at the British Museum A spokesman for the museum said it was already asking gallery assistants to give feedback on which parts of the collection were proving most popular, and which artefacts are most photographed.Eventually, it would like to equip visitors with tools which would allow them to walk past an exhibit, and have information about it delivered straight to their phones along with suggestions of other things they might like to see.Dr Fischer’s plans for the coming years include a pledge to “recalibrate the balance and presence of different cultures”, with too few objects from the likes of Australia, Papua New Guinea and Polynesia currently on permanent display.The museum will open three new or refurbished permanent galleries in 2017-18, on China and South Asia, Japan and the Islamic world.

He is in a stable condition in hospital.The shooting, the second of its kind in 24 hours, drew a strong rebuke from the PSNI.Belfast Policing Commander Chief Superintendent Chris Noble said:“I want to condemn what has happened in the strongest terms. It is very early to speculate in terms of the people involved, but at the very least they are predatory criminals. It is also too early to say if the number of recent shootings in west Belfast are linked but clearly there is an active line of inquiry around the involvement of violent dissident republicans. I would not want to speculate on exactly why individuals were targeted but there is never any justification for this violent, abusive behaviour.“Last night saw an attack on a 16-year-old boy. Any civilised society would see that for what it is – child abuse. It is most definitely not policing or community safety activity.“There is only one police service in west Belfast and that is the PSNI.”Noble said that the community needed to be freed of those who “revert to child abuse and shooting people to further their cause”.On Wednesday, a man was shot in the legs near the Falls Road. He is also in a stable condition in hospital.Read: Kinahan cartel’s 24hr surveillance system to protect David Byrne’s graveRead: Poll: Should British Empire inspired Irish street names be changed?

State IBU Reach Tentative Agreement On New Contract

first_imgThe M/V Chenega undergoes repairs in drydock at the Ketchikan Shipyard earlier this year. (Photo by Heather Bryant/KTOO)The largest labor union representing Alaska Marine Highway System workers has a tentative agreement for a new three-year contract with the state.The Inlandboatmen’s Union of the Pacific and the Alaska Department of Administration reached the agreement last week after more than six months at the bargaining table.Download AudioThe IBU represents about 650 Alaska Marine Highway System employees.While the proposed contract does not include a pay increase in the first year, workers would get a 1 percent raise in year two and a 2 percent increase in year three. Some employees would get additional increases to make their wages more competitive with other jobs in the maritime industry.IBU Regional Director Ricky Deising says the union’s negotiating team believes it’s the best possible deal and is urging members to ratify it.We fought for almost seven months to get fair treatment for our members and we believe that’s what came out of this negotiation,” Deising says.The state backed off a controversial proposal to change how the cost of living differential is calculated for ferry workers who live in Alaska. Those employees currently get an in-state salary adjustment based on Seattle wages. The state wanted to change the base city to Anchorage for all new employees hired after the start of the contract.During this past legislative session, the IBU and other maritime unions came out strongly against a bill that mirrored the state’s position. The legislation, Senate Bill 182, did not pass.“We weren’t willing to back off and allow future work to be paid less,” Deising says.The two sides agreed to freeze the cost of living differential for the duration of the contract, meaning employees won’t get any additional geographic adjustment as part of the negotiated wage increases.Administration Commissioner Curtis Thayer says the state is trying to keep the cost of running the marine highway system in check. The state operating subsidy averages more than $100 million a year, according to recent financial reports for the agency.“So when you have one sector of state government costing potentially a billion dollars in less than a decade, then there has to be a look for savings,” Thayer says. “And anytime that you’re negotiating wages and benefits that’s one of them.”Last month, IBU members voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike if negotiations failed. Thayer says the vote wasn’t much of a factor in reaching the tentative agreement. Deising says it was a show of solidarity, but the union never threatened to strike and had hoped to avoid one.“The bottom line I believe is the state understood they needed to come to an agreement to take care of their employees,” Deising says.The state is still negotiating with the other two unions representing ferry workers: the Marine Engineers Beneficial Association and the International Association of Masters, Mates and Pilots. Thayer says the state won’t budge much from the deal struck with the IBU.IBU has set the stage, and we’re not going to differ much for those two unions,” Thayer says.The current contracts for all three unions expire June 30. Now that IBU has a tentative agreement, Deising says its members will continue working under the current contract. He expects a ratification vote to take place in the next two months.The Alaska Legislature must approve the financial terms of the contract.Editor’s note: This story has been updated to clarify Ricky Deising’s comments about the strike authorization vote. A previous version stated Deising did not think the strike authorization was much of a factor in reaching the tentative agreement. In fact, he said it was a show of solidarity.last_img read more

North Korea Releases 3 Americans As Pompeos Visit Concludes

first_img Share Chung Sung-Jun/Getty ImagesNorth Korea has released three American citizens it had been holding captive. Here, South Koreans on Wednesday watch a TV report about U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to North Korea.North Korea has released three Americans it had been holding captive, in a deal that emerged as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ended his visit to the isolated country. They will arrive back in the U.S. early Thursday – and President Trump says he will meet the group at the airport.The released Americans are believed to be: Kim Dong Chul, who was arrested in 2015; Tony Kim, also known as Kim Sang-duk, a teacher who was detained in April 2017; and Kim Hak-song, also known as Jin Xue Song, whose detention was announced shortly after Kim Sang-duk’s.Talk of the captives’ release had increased as the U.S. and North Korea’s regime engaged in rare talks — and worked to arrange a meeting between Trump and Kim Jong Un. The president said Pompeo has worked out the place and time of the summit, in talks with North Korean officials.Trump confirmed their release in a tweet on Wednesday morning, saying the group was airborne.I am pleased to inform you that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in the air and on his way back from North Korea with the 3 wonderful gentlemen that everyone is looking so forward to meeting. They seem to be in good health. Also, good meeting with Kim Jong Un. Date & Place set.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 9, 2018“I am pleased to inform you that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in the air and on his way back from North Korea,” Trump wrote, “with the 3 wonderful gentlemen that everyone is looking so forward to meeting. They seem to be in good health.”For Pompeo, this was the second surprise trip to North Korea in recent weeks, having traveled to the country to visit Kim Jong Un in early April while he was CIA director — and before his confirmation as secretary of state.On Wednesday morning, Trump said that “Pompeo and his ‘guests’ will be landing at Andrews Air Force Base at 2:00 A.M. in the morning. I will be there to greet them. Very exciting!”Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.last_img read more

FLux 4 brings presets and program whitelist

first_imgF.Lux 4 brings presets and program whitelist by Martin Brinkmann on April 05, 2017 in Software – Last Update: April 06, 2017 – 11 commentsF.Lux 4, a new beta version of the blue light filtering application for Windows, introduces presets, and options to whitelist programs.If you work late at night on a computer, or early in the morning, you may have experienced the effect that artificial light can have on your health.F.Lux has been designed to filter out blue light to make colors warmer to make them more eye pleasing, and improve sleep.Companies like Apple or Microsoft have begun to implement similar functionality into their operating systems. Microsoft will introduce the Night Light feature in the Windows 10 Creators Update.F.Lux 4 new features and changesF.Lux 4 is offered as a beta version for Windows currently. This means that things may change before the final release, but it seems unlikely that this is going to happen.The new version ships with several new features, including the option to disable F.Lux by application, and new presets that may help you customize the filtering.The new app filtering works in the following way:Open the program that you want to whitelist. Whitelisting means that F.Lux won’t filter light when the program window is active.Right-click on the F.Lux 4 system tray icon, and select the “disable for” option displayed there, e.g. disable for Firefox.Repeat this for any other program that you want whitelisted. This can be extremely useful for apps like Adobe Photoshop, screenshot taking tools, or photo viewers, that the filtered light conditions may interfere with.You had to disable the filtering manually previously each time you needed to use one of those programs. With the new whitelisting option, you make the change once and don’t have to worry about it anymore.Another new feature of F.Lux 4 is support for presets. You may use them from the system tray context menu, or when the program window is open.Select a preset like recommended colors, working late or daytime eyestrain to have settings adjusted automatically. It is naturally still possible to use custom filter settings if you prefer that.The new version of F.Lux ships with new color filters on top of that, and options to use a wider range of color settings. These filters can be set from the system tray menu directly.Colors can also be adjusted with the two new hotkeys Alt-Shift-PageUP or Alt-Shift-PageDown.The new bedtime mode  makes light warmer automatically before you to go bed to improve sleep on top of that.Another new feature is the backwards alarm clock. It reminds you not to stay up to late automatically. You can disable the feature in the program options.As far as changes are concerned, there are two that are worthy of note. The first is that the F.Lux interface is now resolution independent. It should look identical on all resolutions, even on high DPI displays.Gamers who run F.Lux in the background while playing games may benefit from a reduced impact on game framerates.Windows users may download the beta version of F.Lux 4 from the official forum.Closing WordsThe ability to whitelist programs to disable the light filtering while those programs are active is a welcome addition. It should make life a lot easier for users who had to disable F.Lux manually in the past whenever they needed to use a program that could not be used with the filtering enabled. It may also bring in new users who did not use F.Lux for that reason.SummaryArticle NameF.Lux 4 brings presets and program whitelistDescriptionF.Lux 4, a new beta version of the blue light filtering application for Windows, introduces presets, and options to whitelist programs.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
