first_imgValtteri Bottas beat Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton right at the end of qualifying on Saturday to take pole position for the Bahrain Grand Prix. It was the first pole in Bottas’ career.Hamilton took pole in the first two races of the season, and had the leading time until Bottas beat him on the last lap.”It took a few races, but hopefully it’s the first of many,” said Bottas, who is competing in his 80th F1 race but only his third with Mercedes. “I’m getting better with the set-up of the car. Feeling more comfortable.”Bottas became the first Finnish driver to take pole since Heikki Kovalainen at the British GP in 2008 – the race after Kimi Raikkonen’s pole at the French GP – and the fifth overall. Keke Rosberg and Mika Hakkinen also qualified first during their careers.”It’s a lot of races without a Finn on pole,” Bottas said.Bottas also denied Hamilton his 64th pole.”That’s how close qualifying should always be, it forces us to be on the limit,” said Hamilton, who had taken pole in Bahrain for the past two years. “I’m genuinely happy with the job I did.”Bottas clocked a leading time of 1 minute, 28.769 seconds over the 5.4-kilometer (3.3-mile) track in Sakhir, compared to 1:28.792 for Hamilton.Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel was a bit disappointed with third.”I crossed the line, looked up and saw both were ahead,” said Vettel. “When I got the time I was a bit down to be honest. Four tenths was a lot more than I expected, given how good the lap felt.”advertisementThe 27-year-old Bottas will now aim for his first win.”I feel I’m now in the game,” he said.Bottas left Williams to join Mercedes this season as an emergency replacement for German driver Nico Rosberg – Keke Rosberg’s son – who quit F1 just days after winning the title last year. Bottas has 10 podiums with a best finish of second.Moments after they had climbed out of their cars, Hamilton grabbed Bottas, hugged him and shook him firmly by the hand.”Valtteri found some great pace,” Hamilton said.Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo was fourth, with Ferrari’s Raikkonen fifth ahead of Max Verstappen’s Red Bull.Although not as hot as Friday, drivers still had to deal with afternoon track temperatures of 37 degrees Celsius (99 degrees Fahrenheit) during P3. By the evening, the heat had dropped off to a more comfortable 30 C (86 F) – similar conditions to Sunday’s race, which starts at dusk and ends under floodlights.Hamilton and Vettel are level at the top of the championship standings. In an exciting start to the season, both have one win and one second-placed finish each, with Vettel winning in Melbourne and Hamilton responding in Shanghai.”It’s great how close it is between the teams, it brings out the best in each driver,” Hamilton said. “The more drivers you have in the mix, the more intense it gets.”Hamilton won in Bahrain in 2014 and 2015, on his way to his second and third world titles with Mercedes. Vettel won in 2012 and 2013 during a glittering run of four straight titles with Red Bull.Five drivers are eliminated from the first two parts of qualifying – Q3 and Q2 – to leave the best 10 in Q1. Hamilton topped Q3 and Q2.In a boost for Renault, both drivers made the top 10, with German Nico Hulkenberg seventh and Briton Jolyon Palmer 10th.But McLaren’s frustrations continued.The team struggled last year after switching back to Honda engines and it looks like things are getting worse. Fernando Alonso and teammate Stoffel Vandoorne have not scored a point yet.Alonso, a two-time world champion, did not even make it into Q2 after his engine’s power unit broke down. He will start from 15th and needs a new engine for the race.”It’s a shame,” the Spanish driver said.Vandoorne starts from 17th, making it unlikely that McLaren will get in the points here.Carlos Sainz Jr. had shown good speed during practice, but qualified 16th as his Toro Rosso was hit by a power failure late in Q1.In the third and final practice, Verstappen narrowly beat Hamilton – but the 19-year-old Dutchman could not carry that into qualifying.Still, starting from sixth on the grid will not faze him.Last weekend, Verstappen started from 16th on the grid and finished third.”It was definitely possible to be a bit further forward,” Verstappen said. “But last time I started a bit further behind and ended on the podium so anything is possible.”advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgIn what may kick up a controversy, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has raised questions over the benefits of reservation.Though calling it her personal opinion, Mahajan asked the beneficiaries to contemplate the use of quota for jobs, said news agency ANI.Mahajan said these in Ranchi where she was to participate in the concluding session of Lokmanthan 2018, a four-day conclave of right-wing thinkers on ‘nation building’, which was held at Mega Sports Complex in Hotwar. Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu inaugurated it on September 27.”Ambedkarji himself said that reservation is required for only 10 years. He visualised equal development within 10 years. But it didn’t happen. Even those present in Parliament kept on extending reservation for 10 years,” she was quoted by ANI as saying.Mahajan said, according to ANI, “Mujhe aarakshan mila, main kuch jivan mein ban gaya to maine jivan ke kitne chan aise bitaye soochne mein ki maine mere samaaj ko baanta kitna hai? Yeh sochna bahut zaroori hai. Kya uska fayeda hai? Kya aarakshan ka yahi kalpana hai? (I got reservation. After achieving something in my life, how much time did I dedicate to thinking to what extent should the society be divided? This is very important to consider. What is its use? Is this how reservation was imagined?)”Sumitra Mahajan quoted Babasaheb Ambedkar who had said reservations must be only for 10 years. “Thereafter, efforts must be made for upliftment for the communities (who enjoyed reservation) as a whole. But it did not happen. Those present in Parliament kept extending the reservations for 10 years. Once, it was even extended for 20 years,” she said.advertisementMahajan was of the opinion that only reservations will not change the country. “There must be a change in thinking in villages about reservation,” she added.READ | Hugging PM in Lok Sabha not proper, Sumitra Mahajan reprimands Rahul Gandhilast_img read more

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia’s decades long discussion about building a new capital has inched forward after President Joko Widodo approved a long-term plan for the government to abandon overcrowded, sinking and polluted Jakarta.Planning Minister Bambang Brodjonegoro says Widodo decided at a special Cabinet meeting Monday to move the capital outside of Indonesia’s most populous island, Java.The site for a new capital hasn’t been announced but Palangkaraya on the island of Borneo has often been rumoured as the favoured location.Brodjonegoro said a new capital would require an area of 30,000 to 40,000 hectares (about 74,000 to 99,000 acres) and have a population of up to 1.5 million.Jakarta has a population of about 30 million in its greater metropolitan area.The Associated Press read more

In a joint statement capping a week-long meeting in Geneva, the rapporteurs, independent experts, investigators and treaty monitors of the UN’s top human rights body stressed their unequivocal condemnation of terrorism, but said that any anti-terror measures must be made in accordance with international human rights conventions and protocols.Drawing attention to the dangers inherent in the indiscriminate use of the term “terrorism,” the experts deplored the fact that under the pretext of combating the scourge, human rights defenders are threatened and vulnerable groups are discriminated against on the basis of origin and socio-economic status, particularly migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers, indigenous people and people fighting for their land rights or against the negative effects of economic globalization policies. The experts are determined, in the framework of their respective mandates, to monitor and investigate developments in this area and call upon all those committed to respect for human rights, including the UN, to be vigilant to prevent any abuse of counter-terrorism measures. read more

Whether you realize it or not, geographic information systems (GIS) are part of your everyday life.When you plan a trip in Google Maps, you’re using GIS. When news outlets use maps to add visuals to stories, they are made through GIS.But the software’s value doesn’t end there.GIS is used for spatial analysis, city planning, viticulture research, environment research and sport analysis. Last year’s Esri Canada Scholarship winner from Brock, Kyle Rankin, used GIS to analyze hockey, investigating shots on goal to determine the best place to shoot from in hopes of scoring.In an effort to help inform the Brock community of the innovative uses of GIS, the University’s Map, Data and GIS Library is hosting an event on Thursday, March 7.Esri Canada, from whom Brock licenses its GIS software, will be at the map library (MCC 306) from 10 to 11:30 a.m. to detail various GIS uses and to answer questions from the University community.Esri representatives will discuss both the researcher side of the software for students and faculty, looking at how GIS can support their work, and the administrative side, looking at how GIS can be used for areas such as recruitment and facilities management.Register for the event on ExperienceBU. read more

first_imgFirst production 16-core Bulldozer Interlagos Opteron processors shipAMD‘s processor naming conventions are anything but clear. So when the company says Bulldozer chips have started shipping to vendors, you inevtiably have to ask: which ones?This week AMD has announced via its Business Blog that the first production shipments of the 32nm 16-core Interlagos Opteron processors have left its manufacturing facilities in Singapore. These new Opterons are based on the latest Bulldozer CPU cores and will be called the Opteron 6200. No further details have been released yet regarding their frequency or clock speeds, but they will fit in the existing Socket G34 used by the Opteron 6100.AMD admits the availability of the chips has come later than planned, but we should still expect to see servers carrying the 6200 chips before the end of the year.Some of those first batches of the 16-core processors will be heading to Cray for inclusion in the Cray XE6 and XK6 scalable supercomputers. In turn, companies like GE Global Research, Switzerland’s National Supercomputer Center, and the University of Edinburgh will be some of the first locations to start using these Opterons.As for Bulldozer processors aimed at the desktop market, we are still expecting them to arrive at some point this month sporting between 2 and 8 cores. Whether AMD manage to ship or fall back to the first quarter of next year when further Bulldozer chips were planned has yet to be determined.To better understand the Bulldozer core design check out AMD’s very informative video below:Read more at AMDlast_img read more

first_img Saturday 11 Mar 2017, 1:58 PM Mar 11th 2017, 1:58 PM Short URL GERRY ADAMS HAS called on Enda Kenny to get tough with the UK and to clarify what consequences Brexit will have on the North.Speaking at Sinn Féin’s Ard Comhairle in Dublin today, Adams said the British are continuing with their plan to impose Brexit, regardless of the views of people of Ireland north and south.Adams welcomed the fact that Enda Kenny expressed his impatience over the lack of clarity from Britain.“I welcome his remarks, but, as usual, the Taoiseach is too slow and too mesmerised about what the British government is doing.“The Taoiseach needs to stop waiting for the British government. I know he is engaging with EU partners, but he must act in our national interest, at European level, to secure special designated status for the north within the EU. That is the consensus of the majority of parties north and south.”Responding to questions on the threat by James Brokenshire to call another election, Gerry Adams said that it is a sign that Westminster is threatening republicans with an election.He added: “Back in the day, the threat was martial law, internment, censorship, and lead and plastic bullets. So, Mr Brokenshire’s threat is progress.”Earlier this month, the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) just about scraped into first place in the Assembly elections. It marked a first in Northern Irish politics – for the first time ever, unionist parties do not command a majority leadership in Stormont.Sinn Féin had its best results ever in the election with 27 of the 90 seats.The vote was called to resolve a political stalemate between historical rivals DUP and Sinn Fein, but they will have to try to work together again to form a new power-sharing government.The election could potentially bring Northern Ireland back under direct rule unless the DUP and Sinn Féin can break the deadlock.There was a 64.8% turnout – the highest since the first vote after the 1998 Good Friday Agreement. There was a 55% turnout in the 2016 election.Read: Shauntelle Tynan starts chemotherapy in US after raising €600k for treatment >Read: European zoos the latest target for poachers seeking rhino horn > 36 Comments As the clock ticks down, get all the best Brexit news and analysis in your inbox: http://jrnl.ie/3282803 By Garreth MacNameecenter_img Image: Niall Carson Image: Niall Carson Share Tweet Email1 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article ‘The Taoiseach is too slow and too mesmerised’: Gerry Adams calls for Brexit clarity Gerry Adams also accused the British government of threatening Sinn Féin with the prospect of another election. 10,435 Views last_img read more
