Pebble Partnership CEO Tom Collier said the key to finding this balance was to address the primary concern of EPA and opponents of the Pebble project – size. The Vice President of external affairs for the Pebble Limited Partnership presented the plans for a scaled back project plan for the Pebble Mine. The corps announced today an additional 60 days of comment, extending the period through June 29. Mark Hamilton, spoke at a joint luncheon of the Kenai and Soldotna chambers of commerce on Wednesday, April 4. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced today that it would allow additional time for the public to comment ahead of an environmental review of the proposed Pebble mine. The corps initially set a 30-day comment period, but Alaska’s Department of Natural Resources and project critics asked that the comment period be extended at least 90 to 120 days. In a release from PLP they stated that this formally begun the permitting process under the rigorous National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review process and other permitting efforts associated with the project.
Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Representatives with the Kenai Peninsula Education Association rejected contract proposals brought forward by the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District at their meeting last Wednesday. Jesse Bjorkman Kenai Peninsula Education Association Bargaining Spokesman: “The associations and the district both agreed that the arbitration opinion regarding the district and employee healthcare costs are not competitive in the comparable market. These costs are unsustainable and unaffordable moving forward.” A third-party arbitrator released recommendations on how it thinks District and employee unions should settle the ongoing dispute. A previous agreement effective through June 2018 remains in use for employees without contracts. Contract negotiations are set to reconvene on Monday at 10am. Pegge Erkeneff, Communications Liaison with KPBSD: “The district did accept the arbitrators recommendation and believes the arbitrators accurately and fairly assessed the situation and reduced the KPESA, which is our support member cost in healthcare, and provided a path for sustainability in healthcare in the district. This includes eliminating the traditional plan, and having the healthcare committee more aggressively utilize it’s existing power. It would ultimately lower the cost for both employees and the district.” KPBSD proposal to KPESA attached is the District proposal to KPESA that the district accepted the recommendations in the Arbitrator’s report. The proposal was rejected by KPESA at the bargaining meeting on May 8. Both the Kenai Peninsula Education Association and the Kenai Peninsula Educational Support Association have been in negotiations with the district since February of 2018 prior to their contracts expiring on July 1.
Newsweek will release a collection of its election coverage as an e-book series for Amazon’s Kindle electronic book reader, the companies announced Monday.Newsweek is the first magazine to publish a collection of coverage as an e-book on Kindle, Amazon says. The collection, packaged as biographies of the presidential and vice presidential candidates, includes archived reporting and commentary from Newsweek’s coverage of the race. The books—entitled “Mr. Cool,” “Mr. Hot,” “The Insider” and “The Outsider” for Barack Obama, John McCain, Joe Biden and Sarah Palin, respectively—will be released October 15 and will sell for $9.99.”We have reported deeply and written searchingly about these candidates,” Newsweek editor Jon Meacham said in a statement announcing the partnership. “The Kindle platform has created the opportunity to give readers something with the breadth of a political biography, but with digital immediacy.” The print version of Newsweek came under conservatives’ fire last week—not for its critical cover story on Palin, but for the cover itself.Andrea Tantaros, a Republican media consultant, told Fox News (and later CNN) that she is outraged over the cover because Newsweek opted not to retouch Palin’s photo.“This cover is a clear slap in the face at Sarah Palin. Why? Because it’s unretouched,” Tantoros said. “It highlights every imperfection that every human being has, but we’re talking unwanted facial hair, pores, wrinkles.”

“A good printer is your partner, not just your supplier.” That’s what former DLG Media Holdings COO Dana Spain-Smith told FOLIO: a little over a year ago, and it still holds true. Just as many publishers are delving into products and services beyond their core competencies, printers are keeping pace, and look to establish themselves as one-stop shops for publishers, by bulking up on offerings beyond ink on paper. New services include everything from digital magazine production, CMS, data, ad sales and mobile platforms.”These product offerings are very different from the services printers have traditionally offered,” said Justin Kissida, senior marketing communication specialist for Brown Printing Company. “We’re breaking the barriers between the relationship of printers working solely with publishers’ production departments with innovative products that get the marketing and ad sales teams involved with things like ad sales intelligence.”Kissida said Brown is able to offer publishers the same or better pricing due to their service agreements and partnerships with service providers. But lower costs aside, it’s still a major decision whether or not to turn over tech and data to a printer. Here’s a look at a few of the new services that printers are and will be offering to publishers, and how they stack up against enterprise solutions.CMS SolutionsIn the first quarter of 2010, Publishers Press will launch a fully-hosted suite of content management services called “Tarpon.”The printer-gone-CMS provider assimilated multiple software resources and a host of services to provide clients with a “best of class” content management and distribution system, said Publishers Press executive vice president Michael Simon. They teamed up with Atex to offer its Polopoly content management system; Mark Logic to offer an XML repository; Temis for text mining; Bronto for e-mailing marketing services and Omniture for analytics.While open source CMS options are becoming increasingly attractive to publishers, an enterprise system still has some advantages, according to Publishers Press executive vice president Michael Simon. “You can get ‘freeware’ to do this, but the integration of freeware can lead to long-term legacy costs. All the challenges of backup and upgrades will reside on our end.” The deterrent to an enterprise solution, of course, is that it can cost thousands of dollars. That’s why the Publishers Press model will be a monthly lease program that’s dependent on seats and viewers, which Simon said should level the playing field for smaller and larger publishers when it comes to digital infrastructure. “We can make this affordable,” he adds. “What otherwise would potentially be multi-million dollar systems to an individual client, we can offer at more palatable price point.” Publishers Press is hoping to have magazine publishing clients beta testing shortly after January.Mobile OfferingsAnother way printers are shaking up their offerings is by delving into mobile. B.Mobile integrates products from Brown’s sister company Prinovis and NeoMedia Inc. to provide a total solution package. Nada Marjanovich, publisher and editor of 100,000-circ. Long Island Pulse, said her team did its due diligence to research a number of vendors before opting for Brown’s service. “Our first thought was ’Oh, we can’t go with Brown, we already use them as our printer!’” she said. But after much consideration, the title, launched in 2005, opted for a printer to incorporate this technology for the first time in their November 2009 issue. As of early December, the magazine was seeing 10 sign ups per day from readers using and scanning the mobile pages of the issue. In order to explain the service and get readers on the mobile bandwagon, Marjanovich said the magazine is appealing to them through a “Do You 2D?” ad campaign with call outs scattered throughout the November issue. There were six house ads and opportunities to use this technology throughout the issue. The magazine plans to use it for both editorial content, as well as with advertising initiatives.Marjanovich wouldn’t disclose specifics, but said “every deal comes with its own structure.” Kissida said B.Mobile costs around $1,000 per issue run (pricing is built on a base charge plus a per transaction fee) with Brown taking care of all barcode creation and creating mobile phone-optimized Web pages. Digital Edition ProviderPublishers have had the option of receiving digital editions through printers for a few years now. Talty O’Connor, founder and president of Gulf Shores, Alabama-based Covey Communications Corp. decided in March 2008 to use Publishers Press for its SportsEvents and ConventionSouth digital editions.When Covey’s publishing model changed significantly in 2009, putting more emphasis on its digital editions, the model slowly became a viable revenue stream. Now, the digital editions are “a substantial part of the marketing program we offer to our advertisers,” O’Connor said. They have a recently-upgraded viewer via e-PubXpress, as well.In spite of a tough year industry-wide, Covey has been able to grow digital revenue in 2009 five-fold for about 14 percent of their total ad revenue from less than 3 percent in 2008. It also has been able to reduce expenses, much of which can be attributed to its “aggressive” digital and online media programs.

While the Prince created an astonishing amount of music in his lifetime, Purple Rain is often regarded as one of biggest classics.Prince’s fifth studio album, 1999, released in 1982, was his first Top 10 charting album, peaking at No. 9 on the Billboard 200, shooting the star into the public eye and earning him his first GRAMMY nods. Yet Purple Rain claimed his superstar status, gaining him his first No. 1 album and No. 1 songs, as well as his first three GRAMMY wins. The film, Purple Rain, released in 1984 along with the album, was Prince’s acting debut and showcased him as a multi-talented star in the semi-autobiographical role.Prince took home his first three wins at the 27th GRAMMY Awards, receiving Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal and Best Album Of Original Score Written For A Motion Picture Or A Television Special for Purple Rain. His third win that year came for his songwriting credits for Best R&B Song, for Chaka Khan’s cover of his “I Feel You.” Purple Rain also received an Oscar for Music (Best Original Song Score) in 1984 and is the third best-selling movie soundtrack of all time.Out of its nine songs, the album had five singles, all of which charted: “When Doves Cry,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Purple Rain,” “I Would Die 4 U” and “Take Me With U.” “When Doves Cry” was the first single released from the album, gaining Prince his first No. 1 song status, followed by the second single and No. 1 hit, “Let’s Go Crazy.” The latter song, the first track on the album, sets the tone with his memorable opening words.”Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life. An electric word, ‘life.’ It means forever…and that’s a mighty long time. But I’m here to tell you there’s something else: the afterworld. A world of never-ending happiness, you can always see the sun, day or night,” he famously says.While “I Would Die 4 U,” “Take Me With U” and “Purple Rain” didn’t quite reach No. 1 status, they all spent time on the charts, with each making waves and offering the world a dynamic taste of that special Prince sound in new packages. All of the singles from the album would follow Prince throughout his life, and are often the go-to songs fans think of as their favorites.With “Purple Rain” we saw the more melancholy side of Prince, as he sings, “I never meant to cause you any sorrow/I never meant to cause you any pain/I only wanted to one time to see you laughing/I only wanted to see you/Laughing in the purple rain.”Even after his heartbreaking passing, Prince will live on forever in our hearts, through his music, and even on the charts. Purple Rain was inducted into GRAMMY Hall of Fame in 2011, celebrating it as a “recording of lasting qualitative or historical significance.” The album also made a comeback on the charts, both after the artist’s death and when the album was rereleased in 2017, when it reentered the Billboard 200 at No. 4. It is safe to say there will never be another star quite like Prince.

Twitter The GRAMMY-winning Queen Of Funk marks her triumphant return with the second music video from her upcoming ‘Hello Happiness,’ revealing its release date as Feb. 15Ana YglesiasGRAMMYs Jan 14, 2019 – 5:23 pm GRAMMY winner Chaka Khan aka the Queen Of Funk, started releasing feel-good dance music in 1973, as the lead singer of GRAMMY-winning disco/funk group Rufus. Fast-forward to 2019, 12 years since Khan’s last album, the GRAMMY-winning Funk This, she is ready to share more music with the world. Today she announced her 12th solo studio album, Hello Happiness, is due out Feb. 15, and has given fans a taste with its joyful title track.”Hello Happiness” opens with Khan singing, “Music makes me sing/ Goodbye sadness/ Hello happiness,” over an upbeat, bouncing dance beat. The video, released today and directed by Sam Pilling, adds a contrasting layer to the song, with muted ’70s-inspired colors and a plot centered around cheating lovers and a phone booth. The scenes of Khan singing into the payphone perhaps point towards making music again as a therapeutic process to overcome her own life’s challenges. It is the second single and video she has released in anticipation of the upcoming album, following “Like Sugar” last summer.”Like Sugar,” a funky dance track, was initially released as an extended version, limited edition 100-copy run for Record Store Day on April 21, 2018, seeing big-time support from dance music DJs, including two BBC Radio 1 legends, Annie Mac and Pete Tong. The single was released to the public on June 15 as the first track from Diary Records, a new sublabel under Universal Music, led by heavy-weight producer Dave “Switch” Taylor, formerly of Major Lazer, and singer/songwriter Sarah Ruba Taylor.The announcement on Khan’s website shares the album will also be released by Diary Records, and its tracks were produced by Switch. It also reveals Khan’s collaboration with Switch and Ruba Taylor began in an organic way, before she was planning on recording a new solo album.”Chaka Khan first collaborated with Switch and Ruba Taylor as a potential featured artist on a different project. Inspired by the power of both her voice and personality, the duo suggested working on an original Chaka Khan album – something which she didn’t have in mind. But she was soon convinced when she heard some of Switch and Ruba Taylor’s songs, which coincidentally were influenced by Chaka Khan but written for their own project,” the statement reads.Most recently, Khan served as the Grand Marshall for the 130th Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif. on Jan. 1. In 2018 she performed at a handful of big events, including Joni 75, a tribute to the GRAMMY-winner Joni Mitchell on her 75th birthday, and Aretha Franklin’s funeral in honor of the Queen Of Soul’s legacy.Khan received her first GRAMMY nomination and win for her band Rufus’ 1974 hit single, “Tell Me Something Good,” at the 17th GRAMMY Awards. As her career progressed with the group and then with her solo releases, she received more nominations and wins over the years, most recently for her last album, Funk This, which won Best R&B Album, along with a win for its single “Disrespectful,” at the 50th GRAMMY Awards.Perhaps her new album will not only help get the world dancing even just a little bit more, but also give the Queen Of Funk a chance to return to the GRAMMY stage.Quincy Jones To Receive Special Achievement Honor From The African-American Film Critics AssociationRead more Chaka Khan To Release First Album In 12 Years chaka-khan-reveals-first-album-12-years-coming-soon-drops-video-title-track-hello Facebook Email Chaka Khan Reveals First Album In 12 Years Coming Soon, Drops Video For Title Track “Hello Happiness” News

Angela Lang/CNET Procter & Gamble’s Life Lab booth at CES 2019 was full of future-focused tech including the Airia, the company’s app and voice controllable fragrance dispenser. The Airia is about as big as an Amazon Echo or Google Home speaker and sits on a shelf or table in the center of your home. It uses inkjet printing technology, just like your friendly at-home printer. A glimpse at the Airia’s inkjet printing technology. Angela Lang/CNET Inside the Airia is a cartridge with 32 nozzles that pull fragrance from its reservoir into individual chambers. Each chamber contains a heater that heats the fragrance oil and causes a bubble that ejects the scent into the air. Because the droplets are 20 to 30 microns in size (that’s about half the width of a human hair), they can ride the natural airflow of your home and deliver consistent fragrance. The team at Airia recommends using one device per floor of your home for best results, and says each device can freshen up to 2,500 square feet depending on your floor plan. You can control the Airia using your voice, the Airia app or buttons on the device. The app enables scheduling, intensity control and on/off control, as well as letting you know when your cartridge is low and helping you reorder supplies. The Airia retails for $200 and includes one fragrance cartridge that lasts approximately 600 hours.

2019 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Convertible review: A topless thrill ride Hold your horses pic.twitter.com/EYNqZLv3ER— Ford Motor Company (@Ford) March 15, 2019 2016 Ford Explorer review: Go road-tripping in Ford’s updated, EcoBoost-powered SUV Ford Did Ford just troll Tesla during its Model Y unveiling? The Blue Oval tweeted out a cryptic image of its legendary galloping horse logo in an electric blue shade. Ford previously confirmed that it plans to produce a Mustang-inspired all-electric crossover SUV, one that ostensibly could be a Model Y competitor in 2020. 0 Share your voice Preview • 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt: Iconic cool 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt is back More about 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Fastback Future Cars Electric Cars SUVs Sports Cars Crossovers Post a comment Originally published Sept. 6, 2018.Updated, March 14, 2019: Adds new Ford teaser tweet.

In any case, it must be fun to steal some of Tesla’s thunder on its announcement night.Enlarge ImageThe ride height remains hidden, probably because enthusiasts need the idea of a Mustang-inspired SUV to be distributed in small, easy-to-process doses. Ford The original story about Ford’s Mustang teaser follows.Ford hasn’t been shy about its intent to build a Mustang-inspired electric crossover, and now the company has seen fit to give us an idea of what it might look like.As part of a Medium post discussing Ford’s shift to electric-vehicle development, the automaker put out a design sketch that hints at what we could expect from a Mustang-inspired “fully electric performance utility.” The sketch doesn’t give away all that much, showing some very obviously Mustang-derived taillights on a body that looks closer to a hatchback than a crossover. In a caption for the image, Ford says it’s targeting a 2020 release date for the still unnamed vehicle, and that it should pack a 300-mile range. We don’t have any information beyond that, though, so we’ll have to wait until Ford sees fit to divulge more info.It appears that Ford has chosen to gloss over one major Mustang-related tie-in for its forthcoming sporty electric ute. At the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, Ford made public its plans to use the Mach 1 name for its EV SUV. Backlash arrived swiftly and with gusto, and it appears that was all it took to take Ford back to the drawing board. It could still be used, but here’s hoping that it won’t be.Electrification will eventually make its way to the Mustang proper, too. In Jan. 2017, Ford first announced its plans to offer hybrid versions of both the F-150 and the Mustang. The public still knows very little about those cars, except that the hybrid Mustang is also due out in 2020, but release dates are always subject to change.

The camera and battery life are just adequate, however, for this otherwise impressive and affordable mobile device. A Dad phone is no joke. It’s got to be cool so the kids won’t be embarrassed when he takes it out of his pocket in front of their friends. It needs to have a big, sharp screen so he can hand it to a child in the back seat to watch videos and buy time on the way to the in-laws. And it should have a good camera to capture photos of the family on vacation. If you’re looking to get Dad a phone he’ll love for Father’s Day, here are CNET’s top choices for phones that should be up for the job.Note CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

The iPhone XR strikes a great balance between price and features, with an excellent big screen, fast performance, Face ID and wireless charging, and a camera that’s mostly as good as the iPhone XS. Its single rear camera lacks optical zoom, however, and it has a limited portrait mode. It also comes with an LCD screen versus the iPhone XS’ OLED. But for hundreds less, it delivers most of the advantages of the iPhone XS. This is a killer phone for Dad — or anyone else: It has a phenomenal AMOLED screen, great battery life and loads of useful camera tools to make images captured with the standard 12-megapixel lens, telephoto lens and ultrawide lens pop. It does lag behind the Pixel 3 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro for capturing amazing night shots. Pixel 3A CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Amazon BlackBerry Google Huawei Motorola Razer Samsung Apple OnePlus See All See at Amazon Mentioned Above Apple iPhone XS Max (64GB, space gray) Jun 15 • Great last-minute Father’s Day gifts for 2019 See at Amazon If it’s all about the photos, the Huawei P30 Pro captures astounding images — including in low light — and has great battery life. It is also a handsome phone that shouldn’t cause embarrassment when Dad uses it in public. It does lag behind other top phones in processor performance, and it lacks a headphone jack. But with the US government ramping up its pressure on this Chinese company, skip this one if Dad works for Uncle Sam — or if he needs US-based customer support. (The phones are sold only via third parties online.) Costing a bit more than the Moto G7, the $400 Pixel 3A packs the same top-of-the-line camera as Google’s flagship Pixel 3 phone and captures amazing night-time photos. It comes in black, the lightest of light purples and white, and you can get a matching fabric case that offers lots of gription so the phone doesn’t slip out of Dad’s hand. It’s not water resistant and doesn’t have wireless charging, but it does have a handy headphone jack on top. If you’re on a tight gift budget, don’t be lured by one of Apple’s or Samsung’s flagship phones. At $300, the Motorola Moto G7 is a great budget phone that looks sharp, packs two rear cameras, offers solid battery life, and runs a near stock version of Android. The single speaker sounds OK and low-light photos aren’t great, but for 300 bucks, Dad can tolerate just-OK night-time photos. Angela Lang/CNET If you want to get Dad a phone that attracts attention, the OnePlus 7 Pro is a good place to start. It’s packed with just about every cool phone feature that’s come out in the last year or so, including an in-display fingerprint sensor and multiple rear cameras. But the one feature Dad may want to fidget with most is the front-facing camera, which pops out of the top of the phone to take selfies and portraits.

Pixel 4 photo released by Google Post a comment Review • Our Google Pixel review: Pure Android at its absolute best Google’s Pixel 4 continues to leak. 9to5Google Google tried to control the narrative around the rampant Pixel 4 leaks that have appeared online over the last few weeks, sharing an official image of the back of the phone on Twitter earlier this week. But not even the search giant can control the leaky ship. There appears to be a new image of the company’s forthcoming Pixel now popping up online. Captured by an anonymous “tipster” in London, on Friday 9to5Google shared images of what looks like the Pixel 4 in the wild, new rear camera square bump and all. No images were shared of the front of the device, which was in what appears to be a fabric case similar to what Google sells for the Pixel 2, 3 and 3A. The site does, however, say that according to their source the phone did have two front cameras and a large “forehead.” Google shared an official image of the Pixel 4. Google In addition to multiple rear cameras, the Pixel 4 is expected to feature a redesigned front that may incorporate Google’s Project Soli for allowing hand gestures to control the phone. It’s also expected to run Android Q and take advantage of the company’s revamped Assistant. Google is expected to fully detail and release the Pixel 4 in October. Commentary: Pixel 4 tease signals a whole new Google 0 Rumors Google
The front of the Pixel 4, as leaked by XDA Developers. XDA Developers Google’s Pixel 4 may still be a few weeks out, but not even Google’s wealth of teasers have slowed down the leaks around the company’s next device. The latest look comes via XDA Developers, which has apparently obtained images showing off the phone. Whereas Google has officially teased the rear cameras and front top bezel — which includes a Project Soli sensor for gestures and improved face-unlock tech — XDA shows off the entire body of the phone. It looks like Google has ditched the two-tone color scheme that has long been a design feature of the Pixel line, but beyond that not much can be gained on the hardware side. The leaked device is running on Sprint, however, so it is possible we’ll see the new phone launch at the carrier, as opposed to just Verizon like past Pixel launches. The apparent back of the Pixel 4. XDA Developers With the launch of the Pixel 3A in May, Google expanded the carriers selling the Pixel to include T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular in addition to Verizon and its own Project Fi.The search giant has traditionally updated its Pixel line in the fall, though it remains to be seen if the company’s new flagship will come in a 5G flavor if it does indeed head to Sprint.
