Fire Disables Polaris Shippings Ore Carrier

first_imgzoomIllustration; Image Courtesy: Polaris Shipping A very large ore carrier of Polaris Shipping, South Korean owner of the ill-fated Stellar Daisy that sank off Uruguay in March 2017, has been stuck for four days off Brazilian coast after a generator fire, Yonhap reports citing the company.According to the initial findings, the fire, which broke out in one of Stellar Samba’s generators on May 26 while the ship was some 50 miles off the Brazilian coast, was allegedly caused by oil leakage.There have been no injuries reported to the crew members of the ship who managed to contain the fire.The crew is now focused on restoring power to the ship so it can continue to the port on its own. However, should those efforts fail, Polaris Shipping has dispatched a tug to the scene to tow the stricken bulker to a nearby port, Yonhap reports.The tugboat is expected to arrive on May 30.Brazilian maritime authorities have been informed of the incident and a navy ship has been deployed to the spot to monitor the situation.Stellar Samba was built in 1994 and sails under the flag of Marshall Islands. Based on the latest data from Marine Traffic, the ship was headed from Caofeidian, China to Ponta de Madeira, Brazil.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

National Chief Atleo calls on Conservative star candidate to retract poverty comments

first_imgBy Jorge BarreraAPTN National NewsOTTAWA-Assembly of First Nations National Chief Shawn Atleo is calling on a star Conservative candidate to retract a claim that no Third World poverty exists in Canada.Chris Alexander, the Ontario Conservative candidate for Ajax-Pickering, said during a March 17 forum on poverty that Canada had wiped out Third World-levels of poverty.The comment caused a small flurry of controversy during the opening days of the election after they were posted on YouTube, but Alexander stood by his statement.Atleo said Alexander’s comments reflected an “underlying, deep misunderstanding about the real issues” and he called on the candidate to retract or correct his statement.“I would invite the candidate to reconsider and retract that,” said Atleo, during a teleconference with reporters Tuesday. “Third World conditions do exist in this country.”Atleo said Alexander’s views on poverty in Canada adds to the difficulty First Nations leaders face in getting the dire reality gripping First Nations communities onto the national agenda during election campaigns.“That is a problem that we have when prominent individuals suggest that (these issues) don’t exist in Canada. That is what prompts apathy about First Nations, it promotes a lack of understanding,” said Atleo.Alexander, Canada’s former ambassador to Afghanistan, told a poverty forum that Canada had eliminated the $2-a-day level of poverty benchmarked by the World Bank.“I believe in poverty elimination in this country,” said Alexander. “We’ve eliminated it for the levels the World Bank recognizes. We don’t have that kind of poverty in Canada, we still have low income.”In an interview with APTN, Alexander said he believes that poverty in some First Nations communities is comparable to what exists in the more poverty-stricken parts of the world. He said the difference was Canada has social programs, while other countries like Afghanistan have no real functioning state.“Parts of Canada’s population do suffer regrettably from grinding poverty and I have seen that with my own eyes,” said Alexander, who has a cousin working for Indian Affairs. “When we are talking about statistics we need to be careful, we need to be careful about how we describe the phenomena…We can debate what is Third World and what is not, I was talking about the World Bank definition of poverty and the Canadian definition of poverty. Too many of our First Nations communities face poverty…and the issue should be taken seriously.”Alexander said some of his “best friends” were from First Nations communities.He said his comments at the poverty forum were taken out of context by the Liberal Party, which he said executed a near-slanderous attack against him.Atleo said he has travelled to poverty-stricken places around the world and he did not see much difference between a child hauling water with a bucket in Africa and a child doing the same in a northern First Nations community.Atleo said Alexander’s comments were just as harmful as those of Quebec Liberal candidate Andre Forbes who called First Nations people “featherheads.”The Liberals have tried to force Forbes from their banner, but election rules do not allow the party to strike a candidate from the ballot at this point.“What is frustrating is that so often we talk about this amongst ourselves as Indigenous people,” said Atleo. “During this campaign maybe we have a chance to challenge (candidates like) Chris Alexander and Andre Forbes to actually visit these communities, spend time with our people, so there can be some accuracy and recognition that there needs to be some real action on these issues.”Forbes told APTN he would not have made the comment if he had the opportunity to go back in time.Atleo also told reporters the AFN was exploring avenues to find other sources of revenues to replace federal government funding. Atleo acknowledged that an independently funded AFN would be able to more fully meet its mandate.jbarrera@aptn.calast_img read more

COAI seeks roadmap to resolve issues plaguing telecom sector

first_imgNew Delhi: Industry body COAI on Tuesday said the new government post elections should set out a clear roadmap to ease the burden of levies on the telecom sector, and issues including cut in licence fee and spectrum charges should be taken up at the earliest, preferably in 6-9 months’ timeframe. COAI rued that revenue continues to remain under pressure for the industry saddled with high debt, and for most players the earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization or EBITDA generated “is not enough to meet the interest expenses”. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal”The definition of adjusted gross revenue (AGR) should be reviewed to include revenue from licensed activities only … Telecom Department should adopt the recommendations given by the regulator on the issue of determination of AGR,” Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) Director General Rajan S Mathews told reporters here. COAI said that income from interest, dividend, capital gains from sale of fixed assets, gains from forex fluctuation, income from rent, insurance claims, and distributors margin should not be included in the revenue of the telecom operators for the purpose of computation of licence fee and spectrum usage charges. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostAlso, revenue from sale of handsets and other subscriber terminals like routers should also be not included in the AGR, it said. “Once you address the AGR definition issue, it has cascading benefits.. that is the first thing they (the new Government) should look at. Second, the issue of double taxation…you have got payment for spectrum up-front why are you continuing to tax the industry for the spectrum usage charge and licence…TRAI already recommended that SUC should come down to 1 per cent and licence fee should come down too,” he said. He added that if these outstanding issues are dealt with in the first 6-9 months by the new government post elections, it would yield “sizable benefits” for the industry. “It would also send a clear signal to both industry and investors that the government is serious about getting the sector back on its feet,” Mathews said. Some of the major demands of the industry include reforms in AGR finalization, allowing deductions of lease line/bandwidth charges and the charges paid by one telecom operator to another as `pass through charges’, alignment of the bank guarantees with the licence fee and SUC payouts of telecom operators, and refund of accumulated unutilised input tax credit, among others. Under the Unified License Agreement, the licence fee currently is 8 per cent of the AGR. Further, in case the operator obtains spectrum, they also pay spectrum related charges, including payment for allotment and use of such radiowaves. Over the past few years, India’s telecom market had become cut-throat where nearly a dozen players jostled for market share, pummelling the call rates to among the lowest in the world. Competition has only intensified since 2016, when Reliance Jio Infocomm, owned by India’s richest man Mukesh Ambani, stormed into the market and offered free calls and dirt cheap data. This triggered massive consolidation in the industry the most prominent being that of Vodafone and Idea.last_img

Security Council condemns attacks against UN offices in Afghanistan

In a press statement issued today, Ambassador Juan Antonio Yañez-Barnuevo of Spain, which holds this month’s Presidency, said Council members remained united in their determination to proceed with the presidential election scheduled for 9 October.The statement called on all parties in Afghanistan to do all they can to make sure the elections are “conducted in a peaceful and democratic way.”The UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) has decided to relocate 38 of its staff from Herat, in the country’s west, after a team of senior UNAMA officials led by Filippo Grandi, the Secretary-General’s Deputy Special Representative, visited the city today.Mr. Grandi told reporters in Kabul on his return that 15 international staff, as well as hundreds of UN staff who are Afghan nationals, will stay on in Herat to repair the buildings and open emergency premises.The offices and compounds of UNAMA, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) were all damaged yesterday when hundreds of locals demonstrated against the Afghan Government’s decision to replace Ismail Khan as the governor of Herat province.Facilities belonging to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the International Organization for Migration, the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission and the Danish Aid Committee were also attacked.Mr. Grandi said the attacks against the UNAMA and UNHCR compounds were the most shocking.”I have seen in my life destroyed UN premises but I have hardly ever seen the type of the destruction that I saw in the UNAMA office. The office is in ashes and everything is burned. They spilled gasoline and threw matches and the whole office does not exist any more,” he said.Mr. Grandi stressed that the temporary removal of the 38 staff was not a sign that the world body would be abandoning the city.He also said he was encouraged by a meeting today with the new Herat Governor, Mohammad Khairkhwa, and his commitments to defending human rights and women’s rights, as well as to promoting security.UNHCR chief Ruud Lubbers said his agency was suspending its operations in western Afghanistan for the second time in a month because of the instability.”This suspension comes at the worst possible time for Afghanistan, when increasing numbers of refugees are coming back to their homeland, and just a few weeks ahead of an election that will shape the future of the country,” he said.”It is crucial that UN staff be allowed to do their very important work at such a vital juncture. This process must take place in safety: it is intolerable that anyone’s life should be endangered.”Mr. Lubbers’ comments add to yesterday’s statement from Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who also condemned the violence, which has occurred less than a month before an estimated 10 million Afghans go to the polls to elect a president. read more

Banks help lift Toronto stock index as loonie ends its 5day streak

TORONTO – The Toronto Stock Exchange’s main index rose on solid earnings and a boost in the price of oil, while indices south of the border slipped.The S&P/TSX composite index climbed 78.20 points to 15,063.16.The jump came as one of Canada’s biggest banks reported strong results for its latest financial quarter, said Ian Scott, an investment analyst at Manulife Asset Management, setting the tone for a slew of financial company earnings this week and next.Royal Bank (TSX:RY), the first of Canada’s six biggest banks to report third-quarter financial results this year, boosted its dividend by five per cent to 91 cents per share, which one analyst said was twice as big as expected.A bump in the price of oil also lifted the energy sector, where shares rose on average by more than one per cent.The October crude contract advanced 58 cents to US$48.41 per barrel, in part thanks to data showing lower inventory levels.The U.S. Energy Information Administration’s latest weekly petroleum status report showed U.S. commercial crude inventories, excluding those in the strategic petroleum reserve, for the week ending Friday, Aug. 18, decreased by 3.3 million from the previous week.Meanwhile, politics impacted Wall Street as Tuesday night’s commentary from U.S. President Donald Trump worked its way into the markets, said Scott.Trump threatened to shut down the federal government unless Congress agreed to fund a wall on the Mexico-U.S. border — one of the American leader’s major campaign promises.The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 87.80 points to 21,812.09, the S&P 500 index fell 8.47 points to 2,444.04, and the Nasdaq composite index shed 19.07 points to 6,278.41.In currency markets, the Canadian dollar was trading at an average price of 79.59 cents US, down 0.08 of a U.S. cent and breaking its five-day streak of gains.Elsewhere in commodities, the September natural gas contract shed 1.1 cents to roughly US$2.93 per mmBTU, the December gold contract gained $3.70 to US$1,294.70 an ounce and the September copper contract fell about seven-tenths of a cent to US$2.98 a pound.By Aleksandra Sagan in Vancouver.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter. by The Canadian Press Posted Aug 23, 2017 9:24 am MDT Last Updated Aug 23, 2017 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Banks help lift Toronto stock index, as loonie ends its 5-day streak read more

AllIreland champs Clare survive massive scare in thrilling qualifier draw with Wexford

first_imgSéadna Morey scrambled home a late goal to save Clare’s from an early exit. Source: Cathal Noonan/INPHOClare 2-25Wexford 2-25(Clare 1-21 Wexford 2-18 at full time)CLARE LIVE TO fight another day but the All-Ireland champions were given a massive scare by Wexford in a thrilling SHC round 1 qualifier in Cusack Park.The Banner looked dead and buried when they trailed by four points with two minutes remaining in normal time.But substitute Séadna Morey smashed in the rebound when Tony Kelly’s late penalty was saved, and then Conor Ryan pointed a last-gasp equaliser to save their summer.Man of the match Conor McGrath then looked to have struck a decisive blow with a goal early in extra time, but Wexford never relented and Paul Morris found the final score to force a replay.It was no more than Liam Dunne’s side deserved. They raced out of the blocks against a static Clare and led by 10 points inside 16 minutes thanks to goals from Conor McDonald and the impressive Liam Óg McGovern. Source: Cathal Noonan/INPHOClare keeper Pa Kelly, back in the starting XV in place of Donal Tuohy, should have done better with McDonald’s shot which beat him at his near post in the ninth minute but was helpless when McGovern — who finished with 1-4, all from play — skinned his marker and kept his shot low.Wexford were their own worst enemy in that first half, and a mixture of wasteful shooting and indiscipline gifted Clare their lifeline. Colin Ryan pointed five frees in that first half, leaving the gap at just five points at the break, 2-9 to 0-10.Clare’s comeback suffered a serious setback when Podge Collins was shown a straight red card in first-half stoppage time for pulling David Redmond’s face guard.By the letter of the new rules, referee Cathal McAllister had no other option. The All-Star forward was visibly upset, consoled by team-mate Shane O’Donnell in the dugout. Source: Cathal Noonan/INPHOAnd when the action resumed, it was Wexford who stretched further in front thanks to points from substitute Jack Guiney and Andrew Shore.Among a cast of strong performers, Shore in particular stood out with what was one of his most influential Championship performances to date.Wexford couldn’t press on though, and as the wides racked up, Clare chipped away at their lead and were back within two points as the game entered its final 15 minutes.A fine stick save by Pa Kelly denied O’Keeffe what would have been the winning goal and kept Clare in the hunt. Source: Cathal Noonan/INPHOBut when McAllister awarded a controversial penalty with two minutes to play, the All-Ireland champions looked down and out. McGovern went to ground but the replays showed that there was no contact from Brendan Bugler, who in fact got his hurl across to flick the ball cleanly away.After a moment’s consideration, Morris pointed the free instead of going for goal, putting the gap at four and leaving Clare in need of a goal of their own with time fast running out.That chance came seconds later when sub Darach Honan did some Trojan work and played in McGrath who was dragged to ground in front of goal. Source: Cathal Noonan/INPHOYou would have put your house on Hurler of the Year Tony Kelly converting but his shot was blocked on the line. Morey was the first to react, bundling the ball home through the crowd, and when Conor Ryan pointed the game looked set for extra time.Both sides still had chances to win it though and had Honan or Garrett Sinnott shown a little bit more composure at either end, the end of the tale would have had a sharp sting.With Clare back to their full complement of 15 in extra time, McGrath left Matthew O’Hanlon for dead and slotted his shot past Mark Fanning. After more than 74 minutes of action, it was the first time in the entire game that they led.Having come this far Wexford were undeterred and a Paul Morris free and then a fine score from dual star Lee Chin brought the sides level again.Clare did manage to go two points in front again but the gap was never bigger and although McGrath looked to have won it with a point in the final minute, Morris had the final say to force the replay.

Opera 1150 revs up performance tones down its interface

first_imgOpera’s newest update brings a whole lot more than minor tweaks and bug fixes. In fact, 11.50 may actually be the version bump that could get Chrome and Firefox users to give the eccentric Euro-browser a chance.The biggest selling point of the update is the claimed 20% speed increase in its Presto rendering engine, but the Opera team’s also made changes to just about every other part of the browser, and they’re pretty solid as well. For starters, the interface isn’t so bold. Aside from subduing the storm of red, they’ve also added a handy navigation bar for articles that span multiple pages — it won’t work everywhere, but it’s a nice addition.AdChoices广告If you use Opera Link, you’ll be happy to know that it now syncs passwords — and because it’s syncing passwords it also warns users if their Link password is a bit on the weak side.Opera’s also taken their desktop widgets and moved them into the browser, placing them in the Speed Dial page. Now, users can place widgets right next to the the preview panes for their favorite pages, whether they be world clocks or an animated GIF of the Dramatic Chipmunk.One major reason so many users have shunned Opera in the past has been its shoddy track record for rendering sites without destroying them. Sidebars would show up underneath body text, comment threads wouldn’t show up at all — just general disarray overall. It wasn’t because the browser was broken, it’s just that most sites don’t follow standards to the ridiculously exact measure that the browser was expecting. While Opera 11.50 can’t fix the Internet, it’s apparently done a pretty good job of fixing most of the issues its predecessors had rendering it. Basically, Opera’s actually usable now.You can grab Opera 11.50 at the official site, or just update to the current version from the Help menu.last_img read more

Qualcomm video trashes MediaTeks new octacore chips

first_imgApparently the big wigs over at Qualcomm are a little irked about all the design wins MediaTek has scored this year. The Snapdragon PR team has responded by taking to YouTube with a clip that smacks down its competitor’s recently-announced 8-core processors.Qualcomm would probably say that it’s just taking the opportunity to remind OEMs that more isn’t always better when it comes to processing. Eight cores might sound like an awesome idea, but that’s just not how it works.The video shows Qualcomm’s SoCs leavng Mediatek’s chips in the dust. Why? Because they utilize a more current architecture. Adding four more Cortex-A7 cores to a quad-core Cortex-A7 chip? That’s just wasteful. Most apps don’t even know what to do with four cores, let alone eight.Just look at the simulated app that shows off how well the two chips handle some of China’s top apps when they’re fed through some kind of bizarre convertor that turns them into notes in a Guitar Hero track.Yes, Qualcomm makes a valid point. Geeky types have been aware for quite some time that simply increasing the number of cores doesn’t guarantee improved performance. Taking to YouTube to poke fun at a competitor, though? That’s not the same Qualcomm that produced the awesome Bug Circus Generator. It’s clearly a Qualcomm that wants to send a message to OEMs and consumers.Qualcomm isn’t going to sit idly by and let Mediatek snap up all the low-end smartphone and tablet designs. The company certainly doesn’t want any more devices like the very enticing Asus MeMO Pad shipping with a competitor’s chip on board. Qualcomm wants to stop all this madness before Mediatek becomes a household name.last_img read more

Black Panther Gets a JawDropping New Trailer and More Marvel Movie News

first_img Marvel might be in its most exciting place in years. Not only are we right around the corner from the most gleeful, fun-looking Thor movie (that’s also a Planet Hulk adaptation), its followed by something that looks even cooler. Black Panther dropped its second trailer this morning. It features new footage, some more story details, and some spectacular shots of Wakanda.If you were worried that the Marvel Cinematic Universe was beginning to produce the same movie over and over again, this trailer should put those fears to rest. In addition to some well-directed superhero action, Black Panther offers political drama, some light spy thriller elements and futurist sci-fi in this short trailer. We also get our first really good look at Michael B. Jordan’s villain, Erik Killmonger. In the movie, he’ll team up with Andy Serkis’ Ulysses Klaue, a dealer of illegal weapons, to usurp the Wakandan throne from T’Challa.The shots where he suits up as Black Panther make me more excited for a superhero movie than I have been in a while. The action looks spectacular, and I can’t wait to see it on the big screen. Those shots are only overshadowed by the visions of Wakanda we’re shown in the trailer. One look at the place and you know exactly why it’s isolated itself from the rest of the world. It’s the kind of fantastic future tech we want from science fiction. It’s easy to see how dangerous it would be in the wrong hands, which should make for some intriguing conflicts as T’Challa attempts to expand Wakanda’s diplomatic role in the world. Also, Marvel continues to fight criticisms that their scores are generic and forgettable. Their solution: license really good music.We’ll get to see Wakanda in its full glory when Black Panther arrives in theaters on February 9, 2019.Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Ragnarok. (Photo: Screenshot via YouTube/Marvel Studios)Before we get there, there’s another Marvel movie that looks almost as fun: Thor: Ragnarok. From the sounds of things, we’ll be getting a lot more of it than we ever expected. According to Digital Spy, the film has grown in length since director Taika Waititi speculated about its running time last July.Originally, he speculated that Ragnarok would be the shortest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, coming in at a brisk 100 minutes. The final runtime has been revealed, and it’s quite a bit longer. 130 minutes, to be exact. While that’s still shorter than The Avengers and Captain America: Civil War, it’s not by much. The movie is still over two hours long, including two post-credits scenes to set us up for Infinity War. Given how much fun the movie looks so far, we won’t complain about the extra length. Even if, as Waititi predicted, the action-packed movie leaves us exhausted by the end.Jacob Batalon and Tom Holland (Via Columbia Pictures)In addition to putting two highly-anticipated movies over the next few months, Marvel is also cleaning up a small mess left by the last one. Spider-Man: Homecoming came out last July to near-universal acclaim. It’s easily the third-best Spider-Man movie. It also screwed up the MCU’s presumed timeline real bad.Marvel purposefully keeps the timeline vague. The Guardians of the Galaxy movies have specific dates, but the rest keep things to a vague near-future. Even so, it confused a lot of fans when Spider-Man: Homecoming threw up that “Eight Years Later” card. Since  Avengers presumably took place in 2012, the year it came out, that puts Homecoming in 2020. But it takes place a few short months after Captain America: Civil War, which has calendars in it that read 2016. So what’s really going on?Cinema Blend reports that Kevin Feige is finally setting the record straight. Marvel is publishing a timeline that will clear up any inconsistencies. How will it do that? By using comics’ greatest tool: retconning! The full timeline isn’t available yet, but Feige is using Tony Stark’s “I am Iron Man” moment from the end of the first Iron Man as a reference point. Just as Star Wars does with the Battle of Yavin, that will be the moment everything in the MCU takes place “before” or “after.” In an older timeline, the first Iron Man had already been retconned to take place in 2010, rather than 2008, when the movie came out. We’ll see what happens to it when the full timeline is released.(Via Marvel)Finally, it’s looking like some of our favorite heroes may not survive Avengers: Infinity War. We already knew actor contracts were expiring, and that would mean some heroes would have to leave. A recent casting notice makes it sound like they won’t leave the Avengers of their own volition. Central Casting in Georgia put out a call for a funeral scene in Avengers 4. “Mourners: Looking for men and women over the age of 18, all ethnicities, to portray mourners. Especially looking for good character looks and expressive faces. This will be photo selected by the film’s directors! Size restrictions: Men no larger than 44 coat, women dress size 0-8. FOR NEW FACES ONLY! You cannot have worked on this project previously, or be booked on upcoming days. NO EXCEPTIONS!” the notice reads.We don’t know anything about the plot of Avengers 4 at this point. We don’t even know what it will be called. All this tells us is that someone will die. Probably in Avengers: Infinity War. From the scant details we’ve heard about that movie, Thanos will cause untold destruction. Now, we’ll probably be forced to say goodbye to some of our favorite superheroes.Don’t be too sad though. Whoever it is, remember that the MCU movies are basically expensive comic books. Death is never all that permanent in those. Whoever dies could still come back, right? Right?Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Social media has given a new edge to my career Actress Shruti

first_imgShruti YogiPR HandoutThe emergence of social media has made the world seem so small, and everything so accessible. Not only it has helped in strengthening personal relations but also has increased the avenues to reach your career goals.After Bollywood’s chocolate boy Kartik Aaryan, it is actress Shruti Yogi whose inspiring story of getting various opportunities through social media, is doing rounds. Yogi, who has been part of shows like Kumkum Bhagya ( Zee tv ), Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi (Sony), and Ishq Me Mar Jawa (Colours), believes that social media has helped her in many ways.”I have been approached for MTV reality show ‘Ace of Spades’, ‘Love School’, ‘The Trip’ and various other projects through social media. Social media has helped me get the kind of work I always wanted to do. I didn’t have to wander around in search of assignments or in the attempt to form contacts in the industry. And that’s the reason I feel it’s very important for people who are public figures to be available on social media platforms,” she said.”On social media, you get to bond directly with your fans besides making contacts with people from the same field. Also, you get to showcase your talents, talk about your upcoming events and understand what people like in you. Their positive and negative criticism, their reactions to your work – all of this makes a lot of difference. So it’s kind of a reality check for me. For me, social media has been quite motivating in every way – as a human being, an actor, as a model. It has given a new edge to my career,” she added.Apart from television, Shruti has also done a film called ‘Chinar Daastaan – e- Ishq’, a Kashmir based story which was released in 2015. Also, she has done theatre, has been part of digital adds, TV commercials, and what not.As of now, the actress has been approached for a couple of movies, endorsements, and web shows but she is in no mood to take whatever comes her way. “I m looking forward to work on projects that are interesting,” she concludes.last_img read more
