Trafic divoire la Thaïlande veut mettre fin au commerce illégal

first_imgTrafic d’ivoire : la Thaïlande veut mettre fin au commerce illégalDimanche, la Thaïlande a promis qu’elle ferait en sorte de lutter plus intensément contre le trafic d’ivoire, notamment en protégeant davantage les éléphants.Alors qu’a débuté la réunion de la Convention sur le commerce international des espèces menacées (Cites), la Thaïlande a déjà fait part d’un engagement de taille. Dimanche, elle a promis qu’elle allait faire plus pour protéger les éléphants et lutter contre le trafic d’ivoire. La conférence accorde en effet une grande importance aux éléphants, aux rhinocéros ainsi qu’aux requins, des animaux qui sont aujourd’hui décimés en raison de l’attrait pour certaines parties de leurs corps.Dans sa déclaration, la Première ministre thaïlandaise Yingluck Shinawatra a insisté sur son attachement aux éléphants, des animaux très importants pour la culture de son pays : “Personne ne s’inquiète plus des éléphants que les Thaïlandais”, a-t-elle souligné citée par l’AFP. “Malheureusement, beaucoup utilisent la Thaïlande comme pays de transit dans le trafic international d’ivoire”, a reconnu Yingluck. En effet, la Thaïlande est accusée d’être une plaque tournante du trafic d’espèces protégées en tous genres, d’autant que le commerce de l’ivoire de ses éléphants domestiques y a été autorisé. Cette autorisation met à mal l’ensemble de la lutte mondiale contre le trafic puisqu’elle permet aux trafiquants d’écouler leur marchandise africaine, illégale celle-là. Du blanchiment d’ivoire sale en quelque sorte. Pour faire face, la Première ministre a donc annoncé que le gouvernement thaïlandais allait “amender la législation nationale dans l’objectif de mettre un terme au commerce d’ivoire et être en accord avec les normes internationales”. Un inventaire des magasins vendeurs d’ivoire À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Cette déclaration a aussitôt été saluée par le Fonds mondial pour la nature (WWF), qui s’est dit ravi de cette promesse. Néanmoins, la Fondation a réclamé un calendrier pour cette interdiction.Cette déclaration a été tempérée quelques heures plus tard par un porte-parole du gouvernement qui a assuré que la ministre ne parlait pas du commerce légal. “Yingluck voulait dire que la Thaïlande prendra encore plus au sérieux le commerce illégal de l’ivoire”, a ainsi déclaré Tosaporn Sereerak à l’AFP. Le ministre de l’Environnement a pour sa part indiqué que les autorités feraient un inventaire des magasins vendant de l’ivoire.Le 4 mars 2013 à 13:28 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Me Too Tanushree Dutta questions Ajay Devgn for not removing Alok Nath

first_imgTanushree DuttaANIActress Tanushree Dutta, who gave a huge push to the Me Too Movement in India when she complained about being sexually harassed by actor Nana Patekar on the sets of the 2008 film Horn Ok Pleassss, had been silent for a while after the huge controversy created out of her confession. The actress has resurfaced and has now questioned actor-producer Ajay Devgn for not removing rape accused actor Alok Nath from his film De De Pyar De. Tanushree Dutta, in a detailed statement where she seems very angry, has questioned Ajay Devgn for not replacing Alok Nath. She wonders why “Bollywood not only love to support such creepy individuals” but also give weird answers when questioned. She calls these Bollywood actors and actresses as “fake heroes” and “even faker rag doll heroines”.It may be recalled that Nana Patekar was removed from the film Housefull 4 after Tanushree Dutta’s accusation. In fact, more skeletons tumbled out of the Bollywood closet after Tanushree’s honest confession, as women got the courage to speak up. Writer-producer Vinta Nanda accused Alok Nath of raping her when they were working together on the popular television show Tara. She later filed a police complaint.Alok Nath had been sent a legal notic by Cine And TV Artistes’ Association (CINTAA) and Indian Film And Television Directors’ Association (IFTDA), but the actor ended up getting work in a small film. Now, eyebrows are being raised for him being hired for Ajay Devgn’s film De De Pyar De.Read Tanushree Dutta’s full statement against Ajay Devgn and Alok Nath here:Tinsel town is full of liars,showoffs and spineless hypocrites. And it seems by a large public consensus that the sign post is pointing currently at Ajay Devgan. During the #metoo movement in India the actor had tweeted and sworn never to work with those accused and now in a surprising and convenient turn of events is Working with rape and harrassment accused Alok Nath and supporting him make a comeback to Bollywood. Doesn’t this prove yet again that your big Bollywood heroes are truly zeroes! Overrated actors and human beings who have created a clout by clever PR machinery and carefull manipulation of public sentiments,old stuffy morons who cant tell the difference between what’s right and wrong and what is the need of the hour!So would it be so difficult to just edit out Alok Naths portions in the film and hire someone else and reshoot those bits even before the film promotions started?? Nobody even knew before the posters and trailers that Alok Nath is in the film so if Ajay Devgan and the makers wanted they could have just quietly replaced him and re-shot his portions (which is barely 10-15 days for character actors in bollywood)and given Vinta Nanda the respect she deserves as well as several other women who were troubled by this guy but No! they had to keep the alleged rapist in their film and rub it on not only Vinta’s but on all our faces as a show of solidarity with all rapists,molesters and harassers of Bollywood and an even greater show of arrogance and defiance against all things morally and conscientiously right.It’s time India wakes up and stops worshiping these morally bankrupt actors,directors,producers and others who clearly put on a facade of being family men just to promote their careers that they build on the tears of women like Vinta and others whom they silence using their muscle power.If you dig deep you will find skeletons in their closets so horrendous that it will totally makes sense why they would stand supporting the accused rapists, harassers and abusers and why their conscience doesn’t prick them while doing so and why they give evasive answers when questioned.Birds of a feather always flock together and that’s why perhaps it doesn’t bother some of these people to work with a guy who has been accused by several women of horrendous behaviour and that’s why there’s always an excuse.The law and order in India has always been skewed against the victims of sexual crimes and that’s why the criminals have always been out on bail,the burden of proof always on the poor woman and hence justice in court has been a far fetched dream mostly apart from very few exceptions that too after years perhaps. But now we know that even the bigwigs of Bollywood not only love to support such creepy individuals but when u question them they give wierd answers!The disgrace is not in the question or the topic but in your own conscience and soul!!You are the disgrace!I hope and pray that someday Bollywood can be free of such lowlifes enjoying the adulation of millions but socially so irresponsible.We need to have real heroes and heroines in Bollywood,real men and women who stand up for the dignity of helpless folks,be living examples of compassion,goodwill and heroism and make a real impact in the nation by using their power and position to help rather than derail movements such as #metoo and other causes and lead by example.Till then no option but to put up with these fake heroes and their even faker rag doll heroines!! -Tanushree Dutta.Housefull 4 director Sajid Khan was also removed from his position after being accused of sexual harassment by an assistant director, while director Vikas Bahl’s involvement in a sex abuse case led to the dissolution of Phantom Films. Many more people from the television and film industry, as also the stand-up comedy industry, had to step down from their positions in an unprecedented movement in India, which seems to have slowed down now.Tanushree Dutta had filed a police complaint against Nana Patekar and had also got support from Maneka Gandhi. Police had taken a written complaint from Tanushree Dutta against actor Nana Patekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya, producer Samee Siddiqui, director Rakesh Sarang and the party workers of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) for creating a ruckus on the sets of the film Horn Ok Pleassss. Nana Patekar had in turn filed a legal case against Tanushree Dutta, denying all allegations of misbehaviour.last_img read more

WATCH Hubli cop wields his lathi as a flute video goes viral

first_imgTwitter screenshotIn a first-of-its-kind feat, a head constable from Hubli-Dharwad Police transformed his fiber lathi into a flute. A video shared on Twitter has now gone viral.Bhaskar Rao, IPS, the Additional Director General of Police (KSRP), had shared the video of Chandrakant Hutgi playing his ‘lathi-flute’, appreciating him on Tuesday.

Time running out for DHFL as the lender needs Rs 3000 crore

first_imgThe crisis in the Dewan Housing Finance Corporation Limited (DHFL) is threatening to draw in the whole mutual fund industry as about 160 MFs have exposure to the tainted DHFL papers, reports say.The deposit-taking housing finance company, Dewan Housing Finance Corp. Ltd (DHFL), needs immediate equity funds between ₹2,500 crore and ₹3,000 crore to continue its operation, financial daily Mint has reported. Last week, in its quarterly result announcement, the mortgage lender declared a quarterly loss of ₹2,224 crore. DHFL said that the National Housing Bank, which is currently the regulating authority of housing finance sector, had partially reaffirmed its capital adequacy ratio (CAR) for the financial year 2018-19 at 10.24%. But shockingly, this value is lower than its own assessment of 15.29% and even the regulatory minimum of 12%. However, DHFL argued that the housing finance regulator’s observation is not accurate.It is to be noted that CAR is a measurement of a bank’s available capital expressed as a percentage of a bank’s risk-weighted credit exposures. CAR is used to protect depositors and promote the stability and efficiency of financial systems around the world.DHFL’s survival is hanging on a thin thread and it desperately needs additional capital inflows. Lenders, especially banks, are showing their reluctance to give fresh loans unless DHLF secure fresh funds. “According to assessments by potential investors, DHFL will need anywhere between ₹2,500 crore and ₹3,000 crore in fresh equity immediately to meet capital adequacy requirements,” said one of the sources. Amid the crisis in the non-banking sector, DHFL has been worst hit by cash crunch triggered by defaults at Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services Ltd (IL&FS). A woman walks past a signboard of Dewan Housing Finance Corporation Ltd. (DHFL) outside its office on the outskirts of Mumbai, January 31, 2019. REUTERS/Francis Mascarenhas/File PhotoThe beleaguered company is looking for a strategic investor to buy stakes. PE firms Oaktree Capital, Cerberus Capital and AION Capital have already submitted non-binding offers. “Many investors have sought assurances from DHFL’s lenders that they would infuse fresh loans into the company after the infusion of equity,” the source added.The shares of DHFL reacted sharply to a quarterly announcement made by the company on Saturday. After hovering at around ₹61.65 on BSE during the initial hours of trade, DHFL shares tanked 32% to their lowest in a decade. The price corrected marginally later on and ended at ₹48.50. Assuring all possible cooperation to all the stakeholders, DHFL, in its stock exchange filing, said that it was “closely working with the stakeholders/creditors to ensure that there is a comprehensive resolution, without any haircut to the lenders, as has been speculated by few sections of the media”.last_img read more

Meeting for Team India head coach begins Ravi Shastri holds massive advantage

first_imgAs the newly appointed Cricket Advisory Committee gets all set to pick the new head coach of Team India, the incumbent Ravi Shastri is the favourite to continue in the role. As per reports, the CAC may find it very difficult to ignore Ravi Shastri’s credentials and also the fact that he got the endorsement of captain Virat Kohli.As far as the CV is concerned, the Indian team had mixed results under his tenure, but the team has been largely successful and this should tip the scales in his favour. Yes, the side did falter in England and South Africa, but they were largely consistent and now, with the players at their disposal, there is no reason why the side should not be a formidable force in the upcoming season.Some points to be discussed File photo of India head coach Ravi Shastri (R) with captain Kohli (L).BEN STANSALL/AFP/Getty ImagesHowever, there are a few points which will be up for discussion: First, India’s struggles in the overseas conditions where the Indian batting struggled and also, the fact that despite the constant vacuum in the number 4 position, there was not a permanent solution for the role and this was one of the reasons why India were knocked out of the World Cup in the semi-finals. What goes in Shastri’s favour is that the bowlers have been fantastic under his tenure and with the World Test Championship on and with the T20 World Cup slated to be held next year, the CAC would be keen to hear and pay attention to Ravi Shastri’s roadmap for the same.We now take a look at the bare numbers and these are quite interesting – as head coach of the current team, the tenure of which started in July 2017, India have won 13 out of the 21 Tests under his watch. Also, they have won 25 out of 36 matches in T20Is and in One Day Internationals, the side has won 43 out of 60 matches. File photo: Ravi Shastri (left) and Vira Kohli during a training session.Reuters”The CAC hasn’t contacted me yet. If they want my opinion, I’ll go and speak to them. With Ravi Bhai, we share a great camaraderie, and will definitely be very happy if he continues. But I haven’t been contacted so far,” Indian captain Virat Kohli said before the team departed for the West Indies tour.The other big names shortlisted include former Sri Lanka coach Tom Moody and former New Zealand coach Mike Hesson. Also in the fray are Lalchand Rajput and Robin Singh – two people who were part of India’s management when they won the 2007 World T20. Also, former West Indies and Afghanistan head coach Phil Simmons is one of the candidates shortlisted for the job.last_img read more

On the processor front, the P53 will come with either a Core i5-9400H, Core i7-9750H, Core i7-9850H or Core i9-9880H CPU.

On the low-end is a 300-nit 1080p anti-glare panel followed by a 500-nit, 1080p panel with HDR 400 and Dolby Vision. There are also two 4K options: one anti-glare IPS display at 500 nits and a glossy OLED panel at 400 nits with multi-touch support.With these powerful specs, the ThinkPad P53 is shaping up to be one capable workstation. However, as Notebookcheck points out, there is no longer an option for an external 90 Whr battery to improve runtimes, and the machine itself is a hair taller than its predecessor. The ThinkPad P53 has a lot to live up to when it launches later this year. Its predecessor, the ThinkPad P52, is one of our favorite workstations as it offers a stunning 4K display, zippy performance and a world-class keyboard in an extremely durable chassis. We noticed many of the things we loved about the P52 when we went hands-on with the P53 earlier this year, although the hefty 6.4-pound multi-touch model isn’t any lighter and we’re still hoping that the 4K model lasts longer on a charge.Which ThinkPad is Right For You?

Trigonometry Is Essential to Physics Here Are the Basics

first_imgYou might have already passed that silly course with a title something like “Introductory Algebra and Trigonometry.” It covered a bunch of stuff, but the important part was that the class was a prerequisite for your physics course.But do you really understand the very basic concepts of trig? Yes, I just call it “trig” because I always misspell trigonometry. Maybe you can use the double angle formula and you don’t have a problem with trig identities. It’s very easy to do some of the more complicated parts of trig while forgetting about the essence of trig (a nice name for a perfume, don’t you think?).Honestly, I find that quite a few students make silly trig mistakes. It happens way more often than it should. Don’t worry, I’m here to help. Let’s start from scratch and go over the super basic ideas of trig. Yes, I will also show you why you need this.Start With a Right TriangleThere are only two requirements for a right triangle. First, it has to be a shape with three sides—the “triangle” part. Second, one of the angles must be 90 degrees. That’s it. With that, you can imagine a whole bunch of different triangles. OK, let’s just draw a bunch. I will start with two perpendicular lines and then draw a hypotenuse at different angles. Here’s what I get.Rhett AllainNote: I turned this image on its side so it fits better. But I want to label the sides of all of these triangles using a convention as shown in this diagram. Rhett Allainrighttriangle2So, in my many triangle pictures the “x” is in the vertical direction. You can see that for all of these triangles the x value is essentially constant. But the angle, the hypotenuse, and the other side (y) all change.Once I have all these triangles, I can start to measure some stuff. Let’s start with the smallest angle of 5 degrees. In this case, I have the x value at 5 centimeters and the y value is 0.5 cm. Just to be clear, I drew this triangle and then I measured the sides with a ruler—no math involved (yet).What would happen if I drew another right triangle with one of the angles at 5 degrees, just like the one in the picture, but in this new triangle the x side is 1 meter long? Yes, the new, larger triangle would have the exact same shape. With a longer x side, however, it will also have a larger y side. But since this is a similar triangle, the ratio of the y to x side should be the same for both the large and the small triangle. So, if you find this y-to-x side ratio (y divided by x) it should be the same for ALL right triangles with one of the angles being 5 degrees.OK, what about a triangle with a 10 degree angle? What about a 15 degree angle? Let’s just do this. I will use all of the triangles in the drawing above and measure both x and y (although x doesn’t change) and then plot the ratio of y/x versus the angle theta. Here’s what I get. Although vectors seem fairly complicated, we can deal with them in a much simpler fashion. Instead of dealing with this pushing force all at once, it turns out that it’s possible to take this force and break it into two vectors: a force vector in the x-direction and a force vector in the y-direction. Once I have all the vectors in the x-direction, part of the problem becomes a one-dimensional x-direction problem. The other part of of the problem is just in the y-direction. Now I have two one-dimensional (and easier) problems.Since the x-direction and the y-direction are at right angles to each other, the x and y parts of the force make up a right triangle. It looks like this.If you know the magnitude of the force and the angle of the force, guess what? You can find the magnitude of both the x and y components of this force. Oh, you already figured it out—you need to use trig. Yup. With the definition of sine and cosine, you get the following:Boom. There’s your trig. Whenever you deal with vectors in physics, you probably need to use trig. Just to be clear, here are some quantities that can be represented as a vector:PositionVelocityAccelerationForceMomentumGravitational FieldElectric FieldMagnetic FieldI could go on—but I’ll just leave it there. I think you get the idea. Trig is important for physics.More Great WIRED StoriesHelp solve quantum computing’s core mysteryGoogle Glass wasn’t a failure.

This plot shows the ratio of sides for pretty much ANY right triangle since it’s a ratio of sides. In fact, it could even be a virtual right triangle with sides that are velocities instead of distances. With this curve I find out everything I need to know about that right triangle with just an angle and the length of the hypotenuse. Knowledge is power (as you will see).But where is the trig? This is the trig. That curve above is a special function. It’s called the tangent function. If you put an angle into this function, it gives you the ratio of y to x. You could write this tangent function as:But remember it’s just a function. Let’s look at another function. But if I use the triangle above, I only get angles from 5 to 80 degrees. I want MORE angles. What if instead of keeping the x side of the triangle constant, I keep the hypotenuse constant? In that case you can imagine a line of fixed length sweeping around a set point. As this set line sweeps around, it would create a circle. AH HA! You knew trig was really about circles. Alas, not really. It just happens that it’s easy to show trig functions with a circle, but trig functions are really about right triangles. Don’t be fooled.How About More Triangles?Let’s draw a bunch of triangles. You can do this too. I’m just going to take an old CD (you know…a compact disc) and trace around the outside. Then I’m going to approximate the location of the center and draw a bunch of triangles. Here’s what I get.Rhett AllainThe numbers next to the lines for the different triangles are just my measurements of the y side length (in centimeters). I drew a triangle for angles at 10 degree increments so I should be easy to figure out the angle for each triangle. I recommend drawing your own set of triangles. You can’t really understand something just by looking at it; you have to do it yourself (it’s not hard).Since all of these triangles have a hypotenuse of the same length, I can make a plot of the ratio of y/r vs. theta for all the angles from 0 to 360 degrees. Two things to notice before getting to the graph. First, what I call “y” could also be called the “opposite” side of the triangle. This means that y/r is the same as “opposite over hypotenuse”—yes, you’ve seen that before. Second, if the y side of the triangle is below the x-axis I’m going to give it a negative length. That will be useful later.Here is my plot of opposite over hypotenuse vs. angle. Remember, these are actual measurements from actual triangles (so it’s not perfect).[embedded content]BOOM. Check that out. Are you excited? I am surprisingly excited that this worked out fairly nicely. You should be excited too, but if you aren’t that’s OK (I guess). But your eyes do not deceive you. That is indeed the sine function. This function is very similar to the tangent function except that it is the ratio of the opposite side of the triangle (opposite from the angle) and the hypotenuse.You could also calculate the ratio of the adjacent side divided by the hypotenuse—we call this the cosine function. OK, now for some important notes on these functions.The sine and cosine functions are ratios of sides. That means that the output of the sine and cosine function have no units (the units cancel in the ratio).The opposite side (y) of a triangle can’t be longer than the hypotenuse. This means that the ratio of y/r can’t be larger than 1. Both the sine and cosine functions have outputs between -1 and 1 (because the x and y values can be negative).You can think of these trig functions as a sort of “lookup table.” You put in some value for an angle, and it returns the ratio of sides for a triangle. That’s it.There are also inverse trig functions, like arcsine and arccosine. These do the exact opposite of the normal trig functions. If you “give it” a ratio of opposite over hypotenuse it will return an angle that goes with that ratio.One other very important point. If you are using angles in degrees, make sure your calculator (or your lookup table) is in degrees. If you are using radians, then your calculator needs to be in radians mode. You would not believe how often I see students make this mistake. But what is the difference between radians and degrees? Let’s go over that.Radians vs. DegreesFirst, I guess we should talk about degrees. Why are there 360 degrees for a full circle? Why not 100 degrees? Wouldn’t that make more sense? Actually, no. The nice thing about the number 360 is that you can evenly divide it by A WHOLE BUNCH of numbers. You can divide it by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10…there are even more. This means that by breaking a circle into 360 “parts,” you can also break it into many other parts. This is great if you are dealing with fractions instead of decimals. So, that’s why we have the unit of degrees.What about radians? How about this? Consider just part of a circle. Something like this.It would be fun to actually draw something like this. You could then measure the value of r (the radius) the angle and the arc-length (s). You could also calculate the arc-length. Since this is part of a circle, the arc-length would be (with the angle in measured in degrees):Essentially this takes the angle as a fraction of the total circle. That means the arc-length will be a fraction of the circumference of the circle. But wait! What if we just use an angle that doesn’t have to do this silly fraction? What if we write the arc-length as:That new arc-length equation works IF a full circle is 2π units all the way around. Boom—that’s your angle measurement in radians. It allows us to make a fraction-less connection between the angle and the arc-length. In many ways it’s better than an angle measured in degrees since it’s more “natural”.Why Do You Even Need Trig?But now for the last question: why do we even need trig? Or perhaps you might ask, who cares about right triangles? You care. At least you should care. The main reason (but not the only) to use trig is for vectors. I’m going to give a quick intro to vectors, but if you want more details, check out this older post.A vector is a variable with more than one dimension. Let’s consider an example. Suppose you push on a block with a force of 10 Newtons at a 30 degree angle with respect to a surface. It could look like this.last_img read more

Reporters interrupt Ukraine leaders press speech

first_img 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Yanukovych was speaking at the opening of the annual World Newspaper Congress, a meeting of dozens of news executives from around the world that has complained of waning press freedoms in the former Soviet state.Opening the event, Jacob Mathew, president of the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers, urged Ukrainian authorities to “regain freedoms that sustain democracy and human dignity.”Since Yanukovych’s election, opposition parties have had little access to television, with the majority of TV channels controlled by magnates loyal to the government, reporters complain of being denied access to crucial information, and a rising number of attacks on journalists are left unpunished.Yanukovych did not react to the protest. Some of the journalist were allowed to hold up their signs through the entire speech.Yanukovych’s office later called the incident an “unfortunate event,” but said that the fact that the journalists were able to hold their protest was a testament to Yanukoyvch’s commitment to democracy.In his speech, Yanukovych vowed to uphold democratic principles and media freedoms.“The main task of the government in the media sphere, as I have set it, is to create conditions when free press can develop freely and be independent of any kind of control,” he said. 4 must play golf courses in Arizona Comments   Share   5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist Sponsored Stories Top Stories Former Arizona Rep.

However, later in his speech Yanukovych called on journalists to be “biased,” when he apparently meant the opposite _ a slip of the tongue that critics said demonstrated his stated commitment to freedom and democracy is merely lip service.“I call on journalists to maintain a high level of ethical standards and uphold the principles of being objective and politically biased,” Yanukovych said.Mustafa Nayem, a top investigative reporter who took part in the protest, called Yanukovych’s words on media freedom cynical lies.“When the president says everything is good in Ukraine, he is lying … to put it mildly,” Nayem told The Associated Press. “It is not a secret to anyone that the (media) atmosphere under President Yanukovych has worsened drastically.”Larry Kilman, a spokesman for the congress, said the protest underscored press freedom problems in Ukraine _ such as corruption, a lack of transparency and corruption in society as a whole, a lack of pluralism on television, and frequent cases of impunity for those who attack the media.He expressed hope that the conference would help address these problems and improve the media climate.

WA adjusts tourism development laws

first_imgWestern Australia’s government has adjusted its tourism building requirements, to encourage investment in the region’s tourist accommodation development. Announced yesterday, Planning Bulletin 83 has replaced the old system which required tourism developers to build according to residential percentages.The new legislation determines building approval by assessing each case individually.Planning Minister John Day said the government has worked closely with the industry to create a system that would “offer more flexibility” as well as allow local governments to “incorporate tourism initiatives into local planning strategies”.“With major projects under way across WA, these new amendments will offer greater diversity and vibrancy within these projects and tourism developments,” Mr Day said.Tourism Minister Kim Hames added that with the short-stay market demand in Perth among the highest in Australia, the adjustments would tiger “much-needed” tourism accommodation investment in the state.“To sustain the short-stay hotel market – in large part due to resources success – we need to attract more investment in hotel development which is imperative to WA’s future growth,” the Tourism Minister explained.“These amendments will mean greater flexibility in tourism development and are in keeping with the State Government’s overall vision, making WA an even more attractive investment proposition.” Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.Jlast_img read more

The NOBU Gala Dinner is HK$1488 per person, with the Sake Pairing for an additional HK$550 per person.On November 25, guests may learn the subtleties of sake with Hazu who will conduct a Sake Tutorial Class and Tasting at NOBU InterContinental Hong Kong.During the class, Hazu will share the background of Hokusetsu Brewery and its unique brewing methods, while providing guidance during a sake tasting, which will be accompanied by NOBU-style canapés.Sake Tutorial & TastingHK$988 plus 10% per personAlternatively reserve the Sake Tutorial Class inclusive of the NOBU Sake Pairing Dinner at HK$2488 plus 10% per person.Nobu and Hokusetsu in partnershipNobu’s first experience of Hokusetsu Sake was when a friend, Eikichi Yazawa, a Japanese rock musician, brought a bottle over to America from Japan. After sampling the chilled Hokusetsu Sake, Nobu was amazed with the taste and decided that he wanted it on his menu. With the help of a trading firm that Nobu used to import fish for his restaurants, they managed to persuade Hokusetsu to limit their exports to Nobu alone.Nobu soon took on more and more of Hokusetsu’s products, until all his restaurants in the US, Europe and even Japan stock Hokusetsu products only.Hokusetsu Sake BrewerySado Island is the largest Island in the Sea of Japan. It is famous for its harsh cold winters and Hokusetsu, Nobu’s preferred sake brewery. The Hazu family started as purveyors of sake and other alcoholic beverages in 1871 and has been brewing since 1886. In 1993 the brewery adopted the name Hokusetsu, which means ‘Northern Snow’.
