And it added that the UN arms embargo and missile sanctions are likely to remain in place for five years and eight years respectively. However, after negotiations continued past a deadline set by the US, Congress will have 60 days, rather than the 30 days originally hoped for, to scrutinise the deal. The White House has said it is confident it can pass the measures, despite the longer waiting time. Yesterday oil prices dipped below $60 a barrel as talks continued. Although prices were pushed lower by a release by the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec), which showed Saudi Arabia’s production increased by 231,000 barrels per day in June, there were also warnings they could fall further if a deal was reached. More follows Show Comments ▼ Tags: Oil prices Emma Haslett last_img read more

Trump has made a priority of trying to lower drug prices. But many of his most ardent supporters don’t know it

The iNEXT is the self-driving SUV BMW will sell you in 2021

first_imgHere’s what’s in store for BMW’s electrified future Handout / BMW “We are technically ready with Level Five” – a car that can drive without any human input – “for ’21,” explained Klaus Fröhlich, BMW’s management board member in charge of development.“But I assume we will offer Level Three and then we will have Level Four as a pilot—not because we are not ready, but because the legislation process is much too slow.”Fröhlich says BMW is ready for anything, and is building the iNEXT so that its autonomous capabilities are modular and able to be swapped between with ease. At the very least, it will offer a form of Level Three autonomy “much beyond Audi and Tesla’s not only in performance, but in reliability.”Dense fogs or Canadian snowstorms won’t phase it, he says. The car’s artificial intelligence will be, basically, a genius, thanks to the 200 petabytes of information – representing 240 million kilometres of driving data – BMW already has in its data centre, and it will be constantly updated with new info.“We will not have beta releases to the customer,” he grins, taking a shot at rival Tesla. “You will not be part of an experiment.” Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.Handout, BMW Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.Handout, BMW Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.Handout, BMW Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.Handout, BMW Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.Handout, BMW Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.Handout, BMW Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.Handout, BMW Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.Handout, BMW Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.Handout, BMW Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.Handout, BMW Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.Handout, BMW Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.Handout, BMW Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.Handout, BMW The exterior styling is paving the way for other BMW i vehicles, too. Its “butterfly”-esque more-vertical kidney-shaped grille, which houses the sensors for the autonomous driving software, is liable to end up on other new i-cars, as is its “streamflow” design language, which defines the profile and works with the car’s aerodynamic elements, especially the roof spoiler and rear diffuser, says Adrian van Hooydonk, BMW vice-president of design.The move away from BMW’s traditional design language, and the injection of “digital character,” was a deliberate one. “If you declare everything you have an icon, you can’t move left or right,” Hooydonk explains.“The whole design of i products opened up our vocabulary and now we’re freer to work with those elements. You have to keep moving as a brand or else you become a sitting duck.”The production car will be made from a mix of steel, aluminum and carbon-fibre elements, he adds, to lighten weight and offset battery mass.Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept. Trending Videos BMW will be ready to offer customers a fully autonomous Level 5 SUV in the form of its new Vision iNEXT in 2021—if only government regulations would allow it.The German automaker showed off its revolutionary-looking new concept car – which, when it goes on sale in three years, will be the company’s new flagship – in the belly of a Lufthansa Boeing 777F it flew last week from New York to San Francisco to Beijing to Munich.While a lot could happen between now and when the iNEXT hits production, BMW is betting self-driving car regulations won’t shift much, or at least not as much as it’d like. Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2 The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.  Handout / BMW The company is so confident in the iNEXT’s autonomy that, Fröhlich says, it will take responsibility in the event of a collision—a real revelation, considering the question of who’s at fault in a crash when the car is driving is one that’s long been debated.“My premise is, yes, BMW will be responsible, and that’s how I develop [a car],” he says. “Regulations [about responsibility] will be different [in different markets]. And if, for example, in China we’re responsible, I better develop a system as if I am responsible anyway.”Besides its self-driving capabilities, “Project i 2.0” will pilot BMW’s fifth-generation electric drivetrain, and offer customers more than 600 km of battery range and performance in the less-than-four-seconds naught-to-100 km/h area.(The production version of the iNEXT will be one of 12 fully electric vehicles BMW hopes to have in its lineup by 2025; another 13 will be partly electrified. Believe it or not, the brand’s on-pace to sell 140,000-plus electrified vehicles this year.)Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept.

Princess Diana’s humble little 1981 Ford Escort is up for auction An engagement gift from Prince Charles, the car is being sold by a Princess Di “superfan” Fröhlich says the iNEXT should hit the market, alongside the BMW i Vision Dynamics concept sedan it showed off last year in Frankfurt, more or less as you see it here.“If you look at the exterior, it’s very, very close to the car you will get in ’21. If you look at the technology, the fifth-generation electric drivetrain, yes, you will get it,” he nods. “And autonomous driving, I can guarantee every customer will have a far-reaching Level Three system, and we have already developed a Level Four and Five system.”But will there be markets that will actually be able to make use of BMW’s Level Five capabilities three years from now? Again, of that he’s more doubtful.When it comes to governments drafting autonomous car legislation, “Europe is much too slow,” Fröhlich says. “And in America, when [autonomous test cars] have casualties, it spoils the whole discussion.” BMW’s Tesla Model 3-rivaling i4 to arrive 2020 with 700-km rangeBut just because the i brand is moving from building “Ultimate Driving Machines” to being “Ultimately Human,” incorporating projector, material, gesture and voice controls, doesn’t mean there weren’t some analog references in the Vision iNEXT—even if it goes Level Five autonomous, the steering wheel is staying.“We don’t want to take control away from our customers,” says Hooydonk, with Fröhlich noting BMW simply wants to “add a new dimension to sheer driving pleasure.”How much of the Vision iNEXT concept we saw will actually make it to production in 2021? Most of it, the executives seem to concur.“Everything you see here is already possible from a technical point-of-view. We wouldn’t be showing it if we weren’t really keen on making something like this happen,” assured Hooydonk. “For this next generation, we really want to take a big step forward,” he said, adding he wants to hold on even to the lounge-like feel of the interior.Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2The 2021 BMW Vision iNEXT concept aboard the Lufthansa Boeing 777F during its Vision iNEXT World Flight.center_img “These unprofessional examples in certain cities, they can damage the reputation in America and it can be a big drawback,” he says. “Because the NHTSA or something will be extremely careful and will slow down the technical development, too.” We encourage all readers to share their views on our articles using Facebook commenting Visit our FAQ page for more information.

CU Hosts International Environmental Journalism Summit Nov. 12-15

first_imgWhether European nations acted more quickly than the United States on climate change because of better press coverage will be up for discussion at an International Environmental Journalism Summit sponsored by the Center for Environmental Journalism Nov. 12-15 at the University of Colorado at Boulder.The summit will bring together European and American journalists to discuss how they cover environmental issues, and how journalism influences public perceptions on key issues such as climate change.”Here in the United States, journalists have been taken to task for what some call ‘false balance’ in coverage of issues like climate change — presenting a more balanced view of opposing viewpoints on an issue than is supported by the evidence,” said Tom Yulsman, co-director of the CU-Boulder Center for Environmental Journalism.Panelists will address the question of whether European nations act more quickly and decisively on climate change because journalistic coverage in Europe suffered less from false balance than media coverage in the United States.Other topics include whether European journalists are freer to have more of a point of view in their work than in the United States, and what impacts the differences in coverage have on public perception and policy.Public panels begin at 9:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 13, in the Aspen Room of the University Memorial Center.Morning panelists include David Baron, a national environmental radio reporter who has worked for NPR and PRI’s “The World;” Leslie Dodson, a freelance television correspondent and former producer for CNBC, Reuters and CNN; Todd Hartman, an environmental reporter at the Rocky Mountain News; and Susan Moran, a freelance writer for The Economist, The New York Times, 5280 magazine and Newsweek. The current Ted Scripps Fellows in Environmental Journalism will all join the panel.Nine European journalists on the 2 p.m. panel include Susanna Baltscheffsky, environmental writer for Svenska Dagbladet in Stockholm, Sweden; Johan Bergendorff, reporter and producer at Swedish National Radio; Juliette Jowit, environment editor for The Observer in London; and Evita Neefs, foreign editor at the Belgium daily newspaper, De Standaard and a Transatlantic Media Network Visiting Fellow.The summit is co-sponsored by the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C., in association with the British Consulate General in Denver.For more information visit the CU-Boulder Center for Environmental Journalism Web site at www.colorado.edu/journalism/cej/.

Service Club Donates Refrigerators to Immunization Programme

first_imgRelatedService Club Donates Refrigerators to Immunization Programme FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Ministry of Health’s efforts to provide immunisation services to children in every nook and cranny of the island, has been strengthened with the handing over of two refrigerators by the Kiwanis Club of Constant Spring. The appliances, valued at $100,000, will be placed at the York Town Health Centre in Clarendon and the Bethel Town Health Centre in Westmoreland. Portfolio Minister, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, who addressed the brief handing over ceremony held this on August 15 at his downtown Kingston offices, said that the refrigerators will assist in maintaining the country’s stellar immunisation programme. “Jamaica has been acknowledged among the most successful countries in Latin America and the Caribbean region by the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO). Our programme is cited as a model for other nations,” he said. Through the immunisation programme, the Minister said, Jamaica has been able to eliminate a number of vaccine-preventable diseases and reduce infant and child mortality. He informed that last year, the country achieved 100 per cent coverage for tuberculosis (BCG), 92 per cent for polio, diphtheria, pertussis or whooping cough and tetanus (DPT), hepatitis B and haemophilus influenxa type B (HIB), and 88 per cent coverage for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR). The Health Minister noted that the country’s successful immunisation programme is grounded in the creation of a primary health care system, which focuses on prevention services. He thanked the Kiwanis Club of Constant Spring for its donation, stating that “this administration is keen on public/private partnerships as a way to further develop the health sector and acquire the resources needed to assist with the health of our population.” President of the club, Andrew Wong, said the donation, which will assist in improving service delivery, represents the members’ contribution to the country’s ‘Jamaica 50’ celebrations. He said that the club has a record of assisting the social sector particularly in education, and will “continue to serve the children of our homeland and the wider communities at large.” The Kiwanis Club of Constant Spring was established in June 2000.

Govt Pursuing Private Partnerships for Development of Health Sector

Dr. Fenton Ferguson has indicated that the Government will be pursuing Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) for the development of the health sector.Dr. Ferguson, who was speaking at Tuesday’s (January 29) press launch of Heart Month 2013 at the Spanish Court Hotel in New Kingston, said the arrangement is ideal, as it will facilitate private investments and allow the Government optimal use of its fiscal space.“We have had to get creative in our response to finance our growing health care needs. We realise that Government cannot continue to provide all the start-up financing required to update and modernise our health infrastructure and delivery systems,” he stated.

We realise that Government cannot continue to provide all the start-up financing required to update and modernise our health infrastructure and delivery systems,” he stated.He noted that in the past, the Ministry has had some partnership arrangements outside of a prescribed policy guideline, but said that a national policy framework for public private partnerships, developed by the Development Bank of Jamaica, was recently passed in Parliament.“Within this policy framework, the Ministry will enter into further PPP arrangements, taking account of the requirement specifics of health and healthcare,” he stated.According to Dr. Ferguson, having a structured PPP policy guideline provides for streamlining of PPP arrangements, improved transparency and broadening of access. The policy will also allow the Government to cut costs, reduce risks, and increase coverage levels, output quality, and efficiency.He said that while almost all areas of the public health system can benefit from PPPs, the Government would seek to promote some areas based on strategic and policy direction.These areas include: technologically intense services such as cancer treatment and dialysis; infrastructure development; health information management systems; pharmacy services; diagnostic services; health promotion interventions; non-clinical support services; training and research.Turning to other matters, the Minister told the gathering that the Government has been fine-tuning a gift policy designed to rationalise and streamline donations to the public health sector.Additionally, he informed, the Ministry is in the process of finalising the national strategic plan on non-communicable disease in the first quarter of the new fiscal year; establish a disease registry beginning with a cancer, hypertension and diabetes registry, and giving additional support to the renal registry.Heart Month 2013 is being observed under the theme: ‘Risks for Heart Disease: Does Sex Matter?’The Heart Foundation of Jamaica has organised a month of awareness and educational activities up to February 28, which includes an outside broadcast on Friday, February 1 at the Foundation’s Beechwood Avenue headquarters in Kingston; and a thanksgiving church service on February 3, at the Providence Methodist Church.There will also be a screening at the Duhaney Park Health Centre in Kingston on February 4; a media appreciation day at the Foundation; and plaza promotions and broadcasts on Friday, February 8, at the Sovereign Centre, Liguanea Lane Plaza, Boulevard Shopping Centre, Michi Shopping Centre; Tropical Plaza, Portmore Mall, and Spanish Town Shopping Centre.There will also be screenings in rural towns such as Brown’s Town and St. Ann’s Bay, St. Ann; Montego Bay, St. James; Lionel Town and Kellits in Clarendon; Porus in Manchester; Bellefield in St. Elizabeth and Lyssons in St. Thomas.Some 83,000 Jamaicans used the services of the Heart Foundation in 2011.The launch also saw presentations by Consultant Cardiologist, Dr. Marilyn Lawrence Wright on ‘Gender and cardiovascular disease’; and on the ‘role of the Heart Foundation in preventing cardiovascular disease’, by Executive Director of the Foundation and Vice President of the World Heart Federation, Deborah Chen.

She was unveiled to replace KPN CEO Maximo Ibarra in the first week of September and was meant to fully take the reins of the Dutch operator on December 1.Due to the withdrawal of Leroy, the extraordinary general meeting of KPN shareholders scheduled for October 28 has been cancelled.KPN member of the board Joost Farwerck will continue on as temporary chairman of the board of management and executive committee.Duco Sickinghe, supervisory board Chairman of KPN, said: “This was a difficult decision for the Supervisory Board, given the track record of Mrs. Dominique Leroy as a very accomplished executive.
