Funding for Ferry Terminal Renovations

first_imgThe province is helping to renovate the Bar Harbor ferry terminal to accommodate the Nova Scotia-Maine ferry service. The expected cost is $8.5 million. “The Nova Scotia-Maine ferry is a vital part of our transportation system and important to our tourism industry, particularly in southwest Nova Scotia,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal Minister Lloyd Hines. “We are confident the relocation to Bar Harbor will provide greater stability for the service and provide cost savings that will reduce the subsidy in the long term.” Work on the ferry terminal includes a fixed span and pier, deck and pile repairs, as well as moving the transfer bridge from the Portland terminal and reassembling it in Bar Harbor. It also includes the demolition of some outer buildings, construction of customs plaza facilities and reinstallation of security equipment moved from Portland. Renovations to the existing terminal provide retail space for Bay Ferries, public space for customers and update customs facilities. The renovation costs will be included in the province’s 2018-19 spending. The work is currently underway with an anticipated launch of the new Bar Harbor-Yarmouth route at the end of June. The province is budgeting $13.8 million to operate the Nova Scotia-Maine service in 2019-20. For more information on the ferry service, visit read more

South Africas president says mining key to reviving economy

JOHANNESBURG — South African President Cyril Ramaphosa says the country’s mining sector will be crucial to reversing sluggish economic growth and high unemployment.Ramaphosa spoke Tuesday at South Africa’s Mining Indaba, an annual industry event.Since taking office last year, he has promised to get the economy back on track. Mining accounted for about 8 per cent of the gross domestic product in 2017. The industry has lost tens of thousands of jobs in recent years, according to local media.The Economic Freedom Fighters, a small but influential opposition party, says it would nationalize mines by 2023 if the party is voted into power this year.Tensions continue over transforming the mining sector and other parts of the economy so that black South Africans have a greater stake.The Associated Press read more

Growth in payment transactions lower expenses drive Visas return to profit in

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Alex Veiga, The Associated Press Posted Jul 24, 2013 4:39 pm MDT LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Visa Inc. returned to a profit in its fiscal third quarter, aided by strong revenue growth as it processed more charge and debit card transactions worldwide.The results topped Wall Street estimates and its shares rose more than 2 per cent in after-hours trading on Wednesday.The company also said its board authorized a share buyback program of $1.5 billion. And it raised its full-year adjusted earnings and revenue growth outlook.Visa doesn’t issue cards. The company, based in Foster City, Calif., is the world’s largest processor of debit and credit-card payments, and makes money from processing card transactions. As such, it benefits from heightened consumer spending.This year, the U.S. economy is showing more robust signs of growth, with employers having added an average 202,000 jobs the past six months, up from 180,000 in the previous six. The housing market is also gaining strength. And consumer confidence last month reached the highest level since January 2008, according to the Conference Board.Those factors have helped boost confidence among consumers, making them more willing to spend. People have been slow, however, to return to spending with credit cards. There are signs, however, that that may be changing.Visa is seeing broad-based growth in transactions, both geographically and by product type, Charlie Scharf, Visa’s chief executive, told analysts during a conference call.Visa’s management views the U.S. economic recovery as sluggish, and doesn’t see meaningful changes to the path of the recovery. But Scharf expressed confidence about the company’s fortunes.“We do continue to feel very good about our business and our ability to deliver strong results in the current economic environment,” he said.Affluent consumers have been driving credit spending gains for Visa this year, though spending by consumers who are not quite as well-heeled has picked up slightly over the past two quarters or so. It hasn’t been a significant driver of the company’s results yet, however.Even so, for the April-June quarter, payments and cash transactions made on Visa’s network grew 10.5 per cent to $1.74 trillion versus the same period last year. Of that, $683 billion came from U.S. transactions, a gain of 10.3 per cent.All told, the company processed 15 billion transactions during the quarter, up 14 per cent from a year earlier.That helped boost Visa’s service, data processing, international transaction and other revenue for the quarter. At the same time, the company spent less on client incentives.That factored into Visa’s net income, which improved to $1.23 billion, or $1.88 per share, for the three months ended June 30. That compares with a loss of $1.84 billion, or $2.74 per share, in the same period last year.The prior-year results included a $4.1 billion provision related to litigation costs and other one-time items.Revenue grew to $3 billion from $2.6 billion a year earlier.Analysts polled by FactSet had forecast, on average, earnings of $1.80 per share on revenue of $2.9 billion.Visa raised its fiscal year revenue outlook to a gain of 13 per cent from a previous estimate of an annual gain in the low double digits. It also boosted its adjusted earnings forecast to a gain in the low 20s percentage from a previous outlook of a gain of around 20 per cent.One question on the mind of the payments industry is how proposed new regulations in Europe could affect profits.On Wednesday, the European Union proposed legislation that would cap interchange fees paid by retailers to banks every time a customer uses a debit or credit card. The proposal, which is aimed at lowering prices for all consumers, needs approval by the European Parliament and a majority of EU member nations.That’s a process that could take up to two years to sort out, noted Scharf, who essentially offered a wait-and-see stance on how the issue might affect the company.Visa is a separate and independently operated company from Visa Europe, which would bear the brunt of any regulations imposed on payment processors in Europe.Visa shares ended regular trading down $1.83 at $186.75. The stock added $3.75 to $190.50 in extended trading. Growth in payment transactions, lower expenses drive Visa’s return to profit in 3Q read more

McDonalds to switch to cagefree eggs in US Canada over next decade

McDonald’s says it will switch to cage-free eggs in the U.S. and Canada over the next decade, marking the latest push under CEO Steve Easterbrook to try and reinvent the Big Mac maker as a “modern, progressive burger company.” (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar, File) McDonald’s to switch to cage-free eggs in US, Canada over next decade by Candice Choi, The Associated Press Posted Sep 9, 2015 5:03 am MDT Last Updated Sep 9, 2015 at 3:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – McDonald’s restaurants in Canada and the United States are switching to so-called cage-free eggs over the next decade, marking the latest push under CEO Steve Easterbrook to try to reinvent the fast food chain as a “modern, progressive burger company.”Under pressure to revive slumping sales, McDonald’s has already announced a number of changes since Easterbrook stepped into his role earlier this year.In March, the fast-food giant said it would switch to chickens raised without most antibiotics. And in April, it said it would raise pay for workers at company-owned stores, which represent about 10 per cent of its domestic locations.The decision to switch to cage-free eggs, known as free-range in Canada, signals a growing sensitivity among customers to animal welfare issues. That has been fuelled in part by places like Chipotle that have made animal welfare standards part of their marketing.“McDonalds’ announcement today is probably the most significant commitment towards cage-free eggs we’ve seen so far in Canada,” Josey Kitson, Canadian executive director of World Animal Protection, said in a statement.“They have the size and buying power to transform how eggs are produced here and ultimately improve the lives of millions of hens.”Kitson noted that most of the more than 300 million North American laying hens are kept in battery cages where each lives in a space smaller than an iPad with little room to move. In typical cage-free barns, hens are able to walk around, lay eggs in a nest box and perch.“We know that Canadians want responsibly sourced food,” Kitson said, adding that companies like McDonald’s, with more than 1,400 outlets in Canada, “are starting to take notice.”Paul Shapiro, vice-president of farm and animal protection at the Humane Society of the United States, called Wednesday’s announcement a “real watershed moment.”While cage-free doesn’t mean cruelty-free or access to the outdoors, Shapiro said it’s a substantial improvement from battery cages.Among the companies that have said they will switch to cage-free eggs are Subway and Starbucks, although neither of those chains has laid out a timeline for when they expect the transition to be complete.Already, McDonald’s says it buys about 13 million cage-free eggs a year in the U.S. But that’s still less than one per cent of the two billion eggs it uses annually to make menu items such as Egg McMuffins.Overall, only about six per cent of the egg-laying hens in the U.S. are cage-free, according to the United Egg Producers. Chad Gregory, CEO of the industry group, said he expects that figure to climb.John Betts, president and CEO of McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada Ltd, said the decision “reinforces the focus we’re placing on our food and menu to meet our guests’ changing expectations.”McDonald’s Canada, which buys about 120 million eggs from Canadian farmers each year, says it will begin the transition immediately.“To meet the increased demand and ensure a sustainable supply of cage-free eggs, McDonald’s Canada will work with industry stakeholders to identify the best path forward, while continuing to work within the Canadian supply management system,” it said.McDonald’s is also likely to increase its egg purchasing over time; starting Oct. 6, the company plans to offer select breakfast items all day in the U.S., although the offering has so far not been extended to outlets in Canada.— With files from The Canadian Press read more

Students protest over school conditions

– Patentia Secondary PTA says environment insanitaryLess than one month into the new school term, students at the Patentia Secondary School staged a protest against the deplorable state of the school, pointing to the bat infested conditions which they have faced over the last several months.According to the concerned students and teachers, the West Bank Demerara school’s protest action, which was staged early Thursday morning, stemmed from the delay of the Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara) Regional Democratic Council and the Education Ministry in addressing the many concerns raised by the school’s administration.Representatives from the Parent Teacher Association padlocked the gates and the students stood in unity to vent their frustrations.The overflowing garbage at the school“We need a proper environment,” stated one student.“The toilet don’t flush, it don’t work, it always dirty,” remarked another.This news publication was also informed that there were a myriad of other issues plaguing the institution; including stagnant water under the wooden section of the school, overflowing garbage and a lack of updated textbooks – these all hamper the delivery of education.According to reports, the Education Ministry was informed of the bat situation over a year ago and the roof was torn down, but due to excess heat, the bats returned. This newspaper was also told Grade Nine students were especially affected by the conditions and the stench.Additionally, work was done by the Education Ministry to remove termites, but this situation has not improved as the termites have returned.Students of the Patentia Secondary School protestingOne parent, who is familiar with the school, informed this publication that the bat waste has affected the students, many of whom have suffered from skin rashes and asthma like conditions which have prevented them from attending classes.Reports are that around 09:30h on Thursday morning, the Regional Education Officer instructed the school’s headmistress to have the padlocks removed and allow the students to sit in classes under a shift system.This publication was later told that the protest would end once the Ministry addresses the mounting problems at the school.

Nokia Slashes 4000 Jobs Worldwide

first_imgWe all knew it was coming: when Nokia and Microsoft signed their agreement to bring Windows Phone 7 to Nokia handsets, the end was nigh for Symbian – and all of the developers, engineers, and support staff that Nokia had built up around the flagging mobile OS. Now, Nokia has made good on the bad news and served over 4,000 employees worldwide with pink slips. In addition to letting that staff go, Nokia is divesting itself of Symbian entirely, and handing it off to Accenture, another technology firm that’s agreed to take Symbian support and development off of Nokia’s hands. Accenture in turn will then become the “preferred provider” of software and services for Nokia’s handsets – including the upcoming Windows Phone 7 devices. Nokia may have just fired 4,000 people, but they are offering many of them the opportunity to re-apply for other jobs at the company and get job training for roles elsewhere. Look on the bright side guys, Google still says they’re hiring. [via SlashGear]AdChoices广告last_img read more

DARPA Developing a Modem Linking Computer and Brain

first_img Modern medicine has brought us quite a bit of amazing things. I, for one, love not dying from infections, from polio or mumps. Not to mention not pooping myself to death when I have a glass of water. These are things that I think we can all agree are Good™. Even with that progress, though, many of humanity’s oldest diseases and disorders are pernicious, but DARPA (yeah, that one) has started looking into some brain-computer interfaces that might do the trick.The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is an arm of the US military, so it seems odd that it would develop a system that… y’know… doesn’t kill people. But, lest we not forget that the agency was instrumental in the creation of the internet. Though, to be fair, that was to make it easier to communicate with other bases about the most effective ways to kill people.Snide comments aside, the Neural Engineering System Design Program will funnel $65 million into a series of research projects that will help bridge the gap between humans and machines. The awards will go to several teams that are working on everything from gifting the blind sight and controlling new cybernetic limbs. Almost every application is benevolent, and many hope to one day help those injured on the battlefield or off.All of this is lofty, sure, but DARPA’s got a pretty good track record overall. Some projects inevitably get canned, but the agency is on track to a few other smaller brain-computer interface research projects.If the NESD fares as well, it should have working brain-computer implants within four years. Ideally, it will be able to convert signals directly and reliably between those our brain uses for its electrochemical computer (i.e. neurotransmitters) and the ones and zeroes of computing. If all goes according to plan, DARPA will be able to pack that tech into space about one milliliter in volume.Paradromics, one of the teams receiving funding, will get $18 million to develop a system of electrodes that record neural activity and then send messages back down. Or, to hear them say it:“As part of the DARPA NESD Program, [we are] developing the Neural Input–Output Bus, or ‘NIOB,’ which is scheduled for clinical trials in 2021. The NIOB device will act as a cortical modem that will be capable of reading and stimulating brain activity with an effective data rate of > 1 Gbps. Together with [our partners]… we will be providing the NIOB to patients with ALS who have lost the ability to speak, allowing them to communicate fluently through the aid of the implant.”While it may be meant to help with ALS for now, a “cortical modem” is the first step to being able to jack into the Matrix. And, I dunno about you, but that’s kinda all I’ve dreamed about since I was a kid. But, to get there, they’ll have to overcome some enormous hurdles — including understanding the brain at all in the first place.It’s a long road, but a worthy one. Here’s hoping that we have some really sweet cybernetic tech a decade down the line.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

SDSU Athletics unveils 250 million stadium portion of SDSU West proposal

It would be funded by bonds that would be paid off with future revenues from the facility.Renderings and a computer-animated video showed a two-level stadium topped by a canopy. The building would be closed at the lower level of one end and open at the other. A wide ground-level concourse would include 18 “garden room” areas of different styles that would be open for public use when there are no events, athletic director John David Wicker said.He said the facility would be more that just a home for Aztec football.”It’s a stadium that will create the opportunity to host professional soccer, whether that be international friendlies, national team matches or a San Diego-based professional team, as well as the Aztec men’s and women’s soccer programs,” Wicker said.”A stadium that will have the ability to host concerts, other professional sporting events, NCAA championships, tractor pulls — you name it, we’ll host it,” he said. “Our goal is to build a stadium that will host events that reach every San Diegan.”Premium amenities will be spread throughout the venue, he said.One of the garden room areas will be dedicated to students who attend games, with food and beverages geared more toward their tastes and priced to meet their budget, according to Wicker.”Our goal is to create a great experience for our students, and we realize that just providing some seats does not meet that need,” he said. “We’ll work with our student leaders on campus to build out an area that they can truly call their own.”A group of students who dubbed themselves “The Show” fueled the sometimes raucous atmosphere for men’s basketball games at Viejas Arena, beginning around 15 years ago, prompting Aztecs fans to dream of replacing cavernous Qualcomm Stadium with a more intimate facility for football where a similar environment could be created.The Mission Valley site became available when the Chargers announced their move to Los Angeles. City officials hope to close the money-losing SDCCU Stadium at the end of the 2018 college football season, but SDSU has been discussing a lease extension to buy time for construction of a replacement.Petco Park could also be made available for the Aztecs in the interim, but the Padres have balked at offering more than one season. Some modifications to the ballpark would have to be made to accommodate football contests.Arrangements would most likely be necessary because SDSU still has to gain rights to the property. A group called Friends of SDSU said Tuesday that it is on track to gain enough signatures to qualify an initiative for the ballot, likely in the November general election.”San Diego State University has proposed a world-class, multi-use stadium that is designed to be a focal point of our community and meet the needs the University and all San Diegans,” the Friends group said in a statement.”As a critical component of the university’s Mission Valley expansion, the new stadium will provide a permanent home for SDSU football and create the potential for year-round, revenue-generating professional sports and entertainment offerings,” the statement says. “This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for San Diego can only be realized by the SDSU West initiative.”However, the measure would likely have to compete with the SoccerCity initiative, which successfully went through the signature collection process earlier this year.”We wholeheartedly support SDSU and its athletic program, and have worked hard on a partnership to provide for SDSU’s stadium needs,” said SoccerCity Project Manager Nick Stone.”It’s truly unfortunate that SDSU officials have decided to use public money to fully fund a $250 million stadium, when the cost could be split 50-50 with us, using private funding,” Stone said. “This is a waste of taxpayer money, and if the SDSU West initiative were to prevail, San Diego will not be granted a Major League Soccer expansion team.”SoccerCity proponents have applied for an MLS franchise, with a decision expected sometime next year.The development could also be slowed because Kratzer said it will go through a full environmental review process.Gordon Carrier of the design firm Carrier Johnson + Culture said the proposed stadium would be on the northwest corner of the property. It would be expandable, if necessary, and could host soccer or other sports, he said.The facility would be bordered by a park for tailgating, two hotels and retail establishments, according to Carrier.Scott Radecic, founder with the stadium design firm Populous, said the stadium was designed to reflect the San Diego lifestyle and fit in with the rest of the expanded campus area.

Not alien UFO but secret underwater bunker behind Baltic Sea anomaly Conspiracy

first_imgYouTubeBaltic sea anomaly has been perplexing experts since its discovery in 2011 by Peter Lindberg, Dennis Åsberg and their Swedish ‘Ocean X’ team. During their ocean exploration, the research team captured a sonar image that showed a weird object landing with unusual features resting on the floor of the Baltic Sea.Soon after the discovery, several conspiracy theorists started outlandishly claiming that the mysterious object now known as the Baltic sea anomaly could be an alien UFO that might have crash-landed on the sea.However, now a conspiracy theorist who runs the website ‘Time Loops’ has suggested that the anomaly could be actually an underwater bunker built during the time of the second world war.”My first impression looking at the Baltic Sea Anomaly is that it resembles a 19th or 20th-century bunker and we are looking at the underside of the ceiling. It is a structure similar to the ones used during the two world wars. At least 4 key features of the main object resemble similar features found on bunkers located all over Europe,” wrote the conspiracy theorist in a recent web post.However, geological experts have always dismissed these claims made by conspiracy theorists. As per experts, Baltic sea anomaly is not natural, and it is basically glacial deposit accumulated on the sea floor during the ice age. Some other experts believe that this structure could be remnants of an ancient underwater volcanic eruption.”I was surprised when I researched the material I found a great black stone that could be a volcanic rock. My hypothesis is that this object, this structure was formed during the Ice Age many thousands of years ago. Because the whole northern Baltic region is so heavily influenced by glacial thawing processes, both the feature and the rock samples are likely to have formed in connection with glacial and postglacial processes,” suggests Volker Brüchert, an associate professor of geology at Stockholm University, reports.A few days back, Dr Simon Boxall, a scientist at the University of Southampton suggested a new theory to explain the mysterious disappearances of ships and aircraft in the Bermuda triangle. Simon Boxall revealed that the rogue waves that have the capability to reach an altitude of 100 feet might be the real reason behind the disappearances.last_img read more

Sexual Harassment Allegations Are Having A Moment But Change Is Still Far

first_imgPHOTO CREDIT: MARTYNA BORKOWSKI FOR RUBENSTEIN/FLICKR CREATIVE COMMONSCollective rage is knocking some successful men, like Harvey Weinstein, off their pedestals.More allegations surfaced over the past week involving high-profile American men with a history of sexual harassment and molestation. From Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore to comedian Louis C.K., these revelations have rocked the country’s political landscape, the entertainment industry, and NPR.Many of these accusations date back decades, but they’re coming out now. Joanna Grossman, the Endowed Chair in Women and the Law at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, says that doesn’t necessarily signal a new cultural shift.“We’re definitely having a cultural moment,” she says. “I think whether it’s a cultural shift is something only time will tell. We’re seeing obviously this surge of complaints and this willingness for people to come forward because they feel a certain comfort with all the allegations coming forward, but whether that will translate into a real change in the way we do business dealing with harassment, I think it’s hard to say yet.”Grossman says that a collective rage is fueling the social media campaigns and the willingness of women to come forward.“I think just sort of the lid has come off and you’re seeing the results of many, many decades of mistreatment,” she says.Grossman says she’s not surprised by the forceful push against women who are making accusations.“People generally who complain don’t have a good experience,” she says. “They are ostracized by coworkers, they’re disliked by management, they’re retaliated against, and they are called liars. Many people who complain about harassment end up, in the end, worse off than if they hadn’t complained, even when what they’re complaining about was illegal or actionable and something we hope they would complain about.”The movement to hold harassers accountable may be gaining momentum, but there are some massive roadblocks standing in the way of change.“Employers and Hollywood and statehouses and all the institutions of our society have been incredibly complicit in allowing this kind of harassment to occur over decades and involving dozens, sometimes hundreds of women,” she says.So will the current wave of women coming forward be enough to change workplaces?“I would hope that this would have some impact in fueling those kinds of changes, but I’m not entirely confident that that’s what will happen,” she says.Written by Jen Rice.

Astronomers explain the low number of discovered grazing planets

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. (—Exoplanet hunters have so far found hundreds of alien worlds using the transit method. They observe the visual brightness of the star, which drops when a planet crosses in front of the parent star’s disk. However, only a handful of grazing exoplanets—meaning exoplanets that partially transit the host-star’s disc—have been detected and confirmed. Astronomers from the University of Porto in Portugal blame giant dark polar spots on host stars for the difficulties of finding new grazing planets. Their research appears in the November issue of Astronomy & Astrophysics journal. Journal information: Astronomy & Astrophysics © 2015 Explore furthercenter_img Astronomers find ‘cousin’ planets around twin stars Schematic view of a grazing planet occulting a polar spot. Credit: M. Oshagh et al. Citation: Astronomers explain the low number of discovered grazing planets (2015, November 9) retrieved 18 August 2019 from When a planet passes in front of a star, it blocks out a tiny portion of the star’s light, reducing its brightness. If the planet, during its transit, does not fully cover the stellar disk, the planetary transit is said to be grazing. While astronomers have discovered plenty of planets, detecting them as they pass in front of a star, only eight have been detected by partial transit of the star’s disk. For example, one of the grazing exoplanets is WASP-67 b, which was detected in 2011. This planet is known to undergo only partial eclipses and its grazing nature was confirmed by a detailed study. The lack of second and third contact makes WASP-67 b hard to track down and complicates accurate measurements of its physical parameters.Prior to the newest research conducted by astronomers from the University of Porto, there has been no study explaining why only so few grazing planets have been discovered. In the new paper, the researchers explore possible explanations for this phenomenon. They point to dark giant polar spots on the host stars.”Our hypothesis to explain the insufficient number of grazing planets is based on the assumption that many grazing planets transit host stars with a dark giant polar spot. As a consequence, the transit light curves disappear due to the occultation of the grazing planet and the polar spot,” the researchers wrote in the paper.Large, dark spots located near the stellar rotational axis, either at high latitude or covering the pole, are common features on stars. They are usually much cooler than the stellar photosphere. The occultation of these dark stellar spots by a planet can generate anomalous results when using the transit method and may lead to an incorrect estimate of the planetary parameters.”If a grazing planet crosses a large polar spot, then the transit depth decreases significantly, considering that the limb-darkening also causes a decrease in the transit depth when compared to a central transit,” the scientists explain.They assume that this leads to a lower signal-to-noise ratio and may cause the transit signal to be below the detection threshold. The signal could be even completely missed. If so, there should be many more planets yet undetected, including planet candidates that were discovered by NASA’s Kepler spacecraft, known as the Kepler Object of Interest (KOI).”We found that more grazing planets should have been detected than have been detected,” the paper reads.The list of detected KOIs could contain many grazing planet candidates, but they have yet to be confirmed. The researchers conclude that at least some of them should be real, and if confirmed, they will partially fill the observed gap of grazing transiting planets. They encourage exoplanet hunters to perform more careful analyses when using grazing transit method in the future.last_img read more

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Lindsey Bahr And John Rogers, The Associated Press Posted Mar 17, 2019 6:13 pm PDT Dick Dale, King of Surf Guitar, ‘Miserlou’ composer, is deadcenter_img LOS ANGELES — Dick Dale, whose pounding, blaringly loud power-chord instrumentals on songs like “Miserlou” and “Let’s Go Trippin’” earned him the title King of the Surf Guitar, has died at age 81.His former bassist Sam Bolle says Dick Dale passed away Saturday night. No other details were available.Dale liked to say it was he and not the Beach Boys who invented surf music — and some critics have said he was right.An avid surfer, Dale started building a devoted Los Angeles fan base in the late 1950s with repeated appearances at Newport Beach’s old Rendezvous Ballroom. He played “Miserlou,” ”The Wedge,” ”Night Rider” and other compositions at wall-rattling volume on a custom-made Fender Stratocaster guitar.“Miserlou,” which would become his signature song, had been adapted from a Middle Eastern folk tune Dale heard as a child and later transformed into a thundering surf-rock instrumental.His fingering style was so frenetic that he shredded guitar picks during songs, a technique that forced him to stash spares on his guitar’s body. “Better shred than dead,” he liked to joke, an expression that eventually became the title of a 1997 anthology released by Rhino Records.Dale said he developed his musical style when he sought to merge the sounds of the crashing ocean waves he heard while surfing with melodies inspired by the rockabilly music he loved.He pounded rather than plucked the strings of his guitar in a style he said he borrowed from an early musical hero, the great jazz drummer Gene Krupa.“Dale pioneered a musical genre that Beach Boy Brian Wilson and others would later bring to fruition,” Rolling Stone magazine said in its “Encyclopedia of Rock & Roll” adding “Let’s Go Trippin’” was released in 1961, two months ahead of the Beach Boys’ first hit, “Surfin.’”The magazine called Dale’s song “the harbinger of the ’60s surf music craze.”Although popular around Southern California, Dale might have remained just a cult figure if surfing had not exploded in worldwide popularity during his peak creative years.When the first of a series of “Beach Party” movies made to cash in on the phenomenon was released in 1963, it included Dick Dale and the Del-Tones performing “Secret Surfing Spot” as teen heartthrob Annette Funicello danced on the beach.Dale had released his first album, “Surfer’s Choice,” a year earlier. He followed it with four more over the next two years while appearing in several “Beach Party” sequels and other surfer movies.Other popular Dale songs included “Jungle Fever,” ”Shake-N-Stomp” and “Swingin’ and Surfin’.”His star dimmed after the Beatles led music’s British invasion onto the pop charts in 1964 and his record label dropped him. His career also was sidelined by a battle with cancer in the 1960s and a serious foot infection in the 1970s that was the result of a surfing injury.His musical influence was profound and included guitar virtuosos Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan and movie director Quentin Tarantino, who selected Dale’s “Miserlou,” as the theme song of his 1994 film “Pulp Fiction.” That helped pull the guitarist back into the pop-culture spotlight.Dale himself had begun to launch a comeback with the 1987 film “Back to the Beach,” which reunited Funicello and her co-star Frankie Avalon as a middle-aged couple returning to their old surfing haunts. He teamed up with Vaughan to record the classic surf instrumental “Pipeline” for that film, earning the pair a Grammy nomination.In 1993 he released “Tribal Thunder,” his first album of all new material in nearly 30 years. He followed it with “Unknown Territory” the following year.Dale continued to tour into his 80s, in part he said to pay the medical bills that advancing age was saddling him with. Having beaten cancer in the 1960s, he suffered a serious recurrence in 2015.Born Richard Anthony Monsour in Boston on May 4, 1937, Dale moved to Los Angeles with his family in 1954, where he immediately fell in love with surfing and the electric guitar.As a child, he listened to Lebanese and Polish folk tunes played by his parents. Eventually he graduated to big band, swing, country and rockabilly.Self-taught on guitar, the left-handed Dale couldn’t afford a custom-made model, so early on he played a standard right-hand guitar upside down and backward. That ended after a meeting with legendary guitar builder Leo Fender, who offered to make Dale his own left-handed model if he’d test a line of guitars and amplifiers Fender was developing.“I became Leo’s personal guinea pig,” Dale told The Associated Press in 1997. “Anything that came out of the Fender company, I played.”He played so loudly that he blew up one amplifier after another until a frustrated Fender built him a “Dick Dale Dual Showman” doubled-sized amp. It was a model that would become popular with aspiring Los Angeles guitarists.As he began to become well known, he began calling himself Dick Dale, explaining years later that a radio disc jockey had suggested it was a better name for a rock star than Richard Monsour.His surfer buddies had already nicknamed him King of the Surf Guitar, a title he said he initially resisted, fearing it would limit his audience. When the spirit of surfing caught on everywhere, however, he came to embrace the crown.Dale is survived by his wife, Lana, and a son, James, a drummer who sometimes toured with his father.___This story has been corrected to say that Dick Dale died at age 81.Lindsey Bahr And John Rogers, The Associated Presslast_img read more

fit to be regarded as a human being talk less a leader” IPOB made the remark in a statement signed by its spokesperson Emma Powerful and sent to DAILY POST The statement titled “Obasanjo’s statement timely we’re vindicated” reads “The statement credited to the former president of Nigeria Chief Olusegun Obasanjo was carefully timed to deliver a devastating blow to the scavenging class of political prostitutes in Igboland that shamelessly went to hawk their wares in Abuja a few days ago “The shameless endorsement of Buhari for 2019 by these bunch of undignified individuals under the banner Igbo leaders have showcased to the world what a bunch of delinquent inconsequential vain glorious misery merchants they are “We support Obasanjo for his timely intervention because at a time of national crisis and with people losing their lives all across the Middle Belt and Southern Nigeria anybody discussing partisan politics under such an atmosphere of mass misery is not fit to be regarded as a human being talk less a leader “What Obasanjo said is the clearest endorsement of the philosophy of our leader and prophet of our time Mazi Nnamdi Kanu that the only way to reign in a dictatorship is by confronting it head on with the truth Obasanjo have spoken the truth and should be applauded for it “Those hungry and insatiable APC yes men that visited Aso Rock to endorse Buhari for 2019 under the banner of Igbo leaders should all cover their collective faces in shame They have brought shame and dishonor to Igboland by openly embracing a mass murderer and genocidist “Buhari has nothing to offer apart from misery and premature death Those who out of ignorance opposed the ideology of freedom as espoused by IPOB can now see that we are visionaries who should be praised not labeled terrorists “Chief Olusegun Obasanjo have now seen the inherent danger of the cluelessness and visionless leadership of the Buhari administration We also commend Chief Ben Nwabueze and Chief Mbazuluike Amaechi who have been speaking in this direction without fear or favour for some time now They are the real Igbo leaders the world should look up to not the collection of failures charlatans pimps and political harlots that went to endorse Buhari in Abuja a few days ago “Obasanjo’s statement is a slap on the faces of these criminals parading themselves as Igbo leaders The timing couldn’t have been more apt “It is crystal clear from analysis of Obasanjo’s statement that the new coalition he is calling for is something similar to what IPOB is doing but on broader all encompassing scale that will include all ethnicities in Nigeria rather than one restricted to Biafra alone” Results from the 2010 Minnesota School Readiness Study showed 59 percent of children started kindergarten proficient in
