Brake fluid leaks can result in short-circuits and fire risk, they said.NHTSA and Nissan said drivers will know there’s a problem if the ABS warning light on the dashboard stays on for more than 10 seconds after engine startup.“If this occurs, owners are advised to park the vehicles outdoors away from other vehicles or structures and to not drive the vehicle,” the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in its recall notice.If that happens, the driver should call Nissan roadside assistance for help, Yaeger said.Steve Yaeger, a spokesman for Nissan North America, said there had been several fires, including one that damaged a driver’s home.The recall applies to the 2016 and 2017 Maxima with Intelligent Cruise Control, the 2015 to 2017 Murano with Intelligent Cruise Control and the 2015 and 2016 Murano Hybrid.

Free Lynne Stewart NOW!

first_imgLynne StewartOn Feb. 21, a petition of certiorari was submitted to the Supreme Court on behalf of Lynne Stewart, a brilliant, principled people’s attorney and outspoken advocate for the poor and oppressed. The petition calls on the court to review the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, which in 2010 increased Stewart’s original sentence from 28 months to 10 years.As the petition notes, “… [Stewart’s] words are entitled to the same protection from prosecution as other political speech. Under no circumstances should her words and beliefs subject her to eight more years of imprisonment.” The document argues that her speech was protected by the First Amendment and the place where she made the speech in question is immaterial to her exercise of the right of free speech. Another reason cited is that giving such a punitive sentence to Stewart can have a “chilling effect” on other defense lawyers in the future.A recent change in Stewart’s health makes the petition even more urgent. Stewart confirmed in a letter on Feb. 3 that her breast cancer has returned and spread to both lungs. She started chemotherapy on Feb. 25. In a March 4 letter on, she reported being very tired, “sleeping extraordinary amounts of time and staying in my bed at other times,” which is “soooo unlike my usual busy self.”Stewart addresses her many supporters directly: “If you write and don’t get an answer, don’t be surprised. I read everything and cherish the caring and kindness. With people such as we, how can we not prevail over the cruel overpower that tries to control us all? It is, to my librarian mind, so reminiscent of the traditional folk/fairy tale where the cleverness and goodness of the fightback always prevails over evil.”In closing she says she’s planning a campaign for “compassionate release.” Given her advancing illness and all the compassion she has shown her many clients over a nearly 30-year career, ­Stewart deserves nothing less.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Nembhard (22) poured in a career-high 20 points, including the game winner, against UC Irvine. Photo by Heesoo Yang.Despite shooting just 36 percent from the floor, TCU basketball slipped away with a 59-58 win over UC Irvine Thursday night behind a career-high 20 points and a last-second game-winner from guard R.J. Nembhard.With 3.3 seconds remaining, Nembhard drained a three-pointer to give the Frogs a one-point lead for the first time in almost 14 minutes of play.“My teammates have confidence in me, and my coacheshave confidence in me,” Nembhard said.  “Itwas just another shot.”The sophomore from Keller, Texas, hit a career-high five three-pointers in the game, three of which came in the last 3:06 of regulation.The win held even more meaning than a tally in the win column for TCU, as it was the 400th career victory for head coach Jamie Dixon. He becomes the 11th coach in NCAA Division 1 history to reach the mark.“I’ve been at great places. That’s probably what it says,” Dixon said about the mark. “I’m very fortunate and very thankful.”It was a slow first half for both teams, with the squadsshooting a combined 31 percent through the first 20 minutes.Behind four made three-pointers, TCU jumped out to an early 15-8 lead, but a 9-2 run by UC Irvine brought the Anteaters right back within two.The first half would go back-and-forth from there,with the Frogs using a 6-0 run to go into the halftime break with a slim 28-22lead.Per usual, the Frogs lived by the three pointer in the first half, as five of their 10 made field goals came from behind the arc.  TCU had held UC Irvine’s leading scorer, Eyassus Worku(13.4 points per game), to zero points on 0-for-4 shooting in the first half.Worku didn’t stay silent in the second half, though, spouting off six points to help the Anteaters take a 38-36 lead just six minutes into the half. The senior finished with 12 points and five assists inthe contest.Moments later, center Kevin Samuel was called for hisfourth foul, and the sophomore was benched for the next nine minutes of play.Foul trouble for center Kevin Samuel hurt the Frogs late in the second half. Photo by Heesoo Yang.“We feel good about our depth inside,” Dixonsaid.  “I think we adjusted a little bit.”During that time, the Frogs never led and trailed by as much as four. Despite shooting struggles, TCU kept it close theentire way through tight defense, bringing the game down to the wire.The Frogs forced 21 turnovers in the game while committingjust 13.With just 30 seconds remaining, Samuel got fouled down low with the Frogs down 58-56. Both free throw attempts hit off the front of the rim, forcing TCU to foul.“Tell him it’s going to be alright,” guard Edric Dennis said about keeping Samuel’s head up. “Kev spends a lot of time working on his free throws, and it’s going to show.”Samuel entered the game shooting just 43 percent fromthe line in his career.The Frogs then missed another opportunity to tie, asNembhard’s layup attempt was blocked following a missed free throw by theAnteaters.Hope was not lost for TCU, though. With a chance to seal the game, UC Irvine missed two free throw attempts, giving the Frogs another shot.This time, Nembhard wouldn’t miss. The sophomore caught a pass in stride and hit his fifth three of the game to give TCU a one-point lead with 3.3 seconds remaining.UC Irvine’s pass went out of bounds in the final seconds, and the Frogs escaped with a win to remain undefeated.Guard Desmond Bane was the only other Frog besides Nembhard to score in double figures, finishing with 11 points to go with seven rebounds.Up next, TCU will head on the road for the first time this season for a match up with Clemson in the MGM Resorts Main Event. Tipoff at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 24, at 9:30 p.m. The game will be aired on ESPN2.“We’re going to take the same approach,” Dennis said. “We’re going to take it and go on the road and try to win.” Linkedin Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Facebook ReddIt Linkedin + posts Previous articleBoschini pushes to change alert system companyNext articleRhodes Scholarship finalist put herself second in athletics, academics Colin Post RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR First TCU spring game since 2018 gets fans primed for a highly-anticipated fall Colin Post Colin Post read more

The accused, Mohd. Asjad Gazi, Irshad Raza, Nihaluddin, Mohd. Aqeel and Mohd. Shahid, had been apprehended on April 13, allegedly while carrying 3 quintals chicken meat in a four-wheeler loader, in violation of the terms and conditions of Lockdown. Accordingly, they were booked under Sections 188, 268, 269, 270, 467, 468, 420, 471 of IPC, Section 3 of the Epidemic Disease Act, 1897 and Section 51 of the Disaster Management Act, 2005 They had approached the High Court seeking bail on the ground of false implication. It was contended that carrying of “chicks, eggs and meat” was an exempted activity during the lockdown. “Joint Secretary, Government of India, Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry, Dairying has also issued a clarification in pursuance of its earlier advisory dated 10.02.2020 that many states have not considered live chicks, eggs and meat in the list of commodities to be exempted from the Lock Down. Therefore, on 30.03.2020, the Ministry has requested to States to issue necessary direction to include the live chicks, eggs and meat in the list of commodities to be exempted from the Lock Down… Director of Animal Husbandry, U.P. had also issued a clarification vide letter dated 03.04.2020 that the “chicks, eggs and meat” are also categorised as an Essential Commodities. Therefore no offence is made out under the aforesaid sections,” the applicants’ counsel had submitted. In these circumstances, the bench of Justice Rajeev Singh enlarged the accused on bail, on furnishing personal bonds. “Considering the rival submissions of learned counsel for parties, material available on record as well as totality of fact and circumstances, and without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, I am of the view that the applicants are entitled to be released on bail,” he held. Significantly, the state counsel had also conceded the fact that chicken meat is an exempted commodity from the Lock Down. He had however opposed the bail application while emphasizing that the Applicants were carrying chicken meat on the basis of “forged pass”. Case Details: Case Title: Mohd. Asjad Gazi & Ors. v.

Nearly 3,000 firefighters deployed as wildfire rages in Northern California

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(LAKE COUNTY, Calif.) — A raging wildfire in Northern California grew by about 3,000 acres on Tuesday as firefighters fought to contain the blaze, which has already destroyed at least 22 homes and buildings, authorities said.The Pawnee fire has burned at least 13,000 acres in Lake County, California, north of San Francisco, as as high temperatures and windy conditions fanned the flames, fire officials said.About 2,700 fire fighters have been deployed to the area, but the brutal weather conditions has made the fight difficult. The blaze was about 17 percent contained as of late Tuesday.“The fire burned very actively throughout the day in the Spring Valley area, north east of Clearlake Oaks in Lake County. The fire is being driven by low relative humidity, erratic winds, and above normal temperatures,” the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said in a statement late Tuesday. “Expanded evacuation orders are in effect for the entire Spring Valley area and residents are reminded to heed all evacuation orders.”Officials say at least 600 homes, businesses and other buildings are at risk as the fire moves northeast.“The firefighters OMG, the minute you think you’re in danger, they are there,” local resident MaryAnne Silva told ABC News. “So thankful for them putting their lives on the line to keep us safe.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Nor’easter delivering first snowfall of season to eastern US

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — A record-breaking winter blast has penetrated all the way to the Gulf Coast.Houston International Airport saw its earliest snow ever recorded. Louisville, Kentucky, has seen its earliest ice storm since 1989. And in Jackson, Mississippi, the high temperature was 36 degrees on Wednesday, the coldest high temperature ever recorded this early in the season.An ice storm warning is in place for Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio on Thursday, where some areas already had a glaze of ice accumulating on power lines and trees; thousands of people are without power Thursday morning.There are 23 states from Arkansas to Maine under a winter storm warning, winter weather advisory or ice storm warning on Thursday morning.The coastal storm is strengthening over the Southeast coast and will continue to spread heavy rain into the Carolinas, with an icy mix from the mid-Atlantic back to the Ohio Valley.By Thursday afternoon, as the storm moves along the coast, a heavy burst of snow is expected along the I-95 corridor from New Jersey into New York City and Boston. Snow will change to freezing rain, sleet and rain by 5 p.m. from New York City and parts south, while inland areas in Pennsylvania and upstate New York will continue to see snow.Everyone along I-95, from Washington, D.C., to Boston will change to just rain by Thursday evening, but inland areas from Virginia to Pennsylvania and into New England, will continue seeing snow, sleet and freezing rain.The snowfall totals will be heaviest in central Pennsylvania and western New York into northern New England, where some areas could see up to 8 inches of snow.A widespread swath of 3 to 6 inches of snow is expected just west of the I-95 corridor, though New York City and Boston will not see much — maybe up to 1 inch or so. The last time New York City saw more than 1 inch of snow in November was in 2012. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Colour maps for fisheries acoustic echograms

first_imgEchograms are used to visualize fisheries acoustic data, but choice of colour map has a significant effect on appearance. Quantitative echograms should use colour maps, which are colourful (have a perceived variety and intensity of colours), sequential (have monotonic lightness), and perceptually uniform (have consistency of perceived colour contrast over their range). We measure whether colour maps are colourful (⁠Mˆ(3)>0⁠), sequential (⁠rs=±1⁠), and perceptually uniform (ρ = 1) using an approximately perceptually uniform colour space (CIELAB). Whilst all the fisheries acoustic colour maps tested are colourful, none is sequential or perceptually uniform. The widely used EK500 colour map is extremely colourful (⁠Mˆ(3)=186⁠), not sequential (⁠rs=0.06⁠), and has highly uneven perceptual contrast over its range (⁠ρ=0.26⁠). Of the fisheries acoustic colour maps tested, the Large Scale Survey System default colour map is least colourful (⁠Mˆ(3)=79⁠), but comes closest to being sequential (⁠rs=−0.94⁠), and perceptually uniform (⁠ρ=0.95⁠). Modern colour maps have been specifically designed for colour contrast consistency, accessibility for viewers with red-green colour-blindness, and legibility when printed in monochrome, and may be better suited to the presentation and interpretation of quantitative fisheries acoustic echograms.last_img read more

Social media now generates up to 15% of our viewings, says Portico

first_imgA leading London estate agency has claimed that up to 15% of its sales viewings leads now come through social media.Portico, which has 15 branches across Greater London, says its drive to use Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook to promote the company’s listings is beginning to bear considerable fruit as more and more house hunters use their smartphones.Research completed by Zoopla recently shows that three quarters of the house hunters it canvassed considered offering homes for sale via smartphones as one of the main keys to good customer service.Social media“We’re not your typical agent who just sticks it on Rightmove, Zoopla and OnTheMarket and that’s it,” says the company’s Daniel Cantle, Portico’s Sales Manager at the firm’s Woodford branch (left).“Because social media really does generate enquiries for viewings and I think it’s impressive that platforms like Instagram can now create that level of interest.“It also enables me to list a property in a different way to traditional portal listings and attract a different kind of buyer.”Portico’s efforts are part of an increasing use of social media by estate agents. That includes Ewemove, which is now including pictures of its agents with the listings it submits to Facebook and Twitter (see example, right).“We intentionally add the agent’s photos to many of our marketing materials and we do it to help us build a relationship with our customers, to help people feel like they know the agent who they will be dealing with if they make an enquiry,” a company spokesperson told The Negotiator.“Our franchisees are the face of the EweMove brand locally because the service they provide to their customers is very personal.”Read more about social media and estate agents.  September 19, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
