first_imgMontevideo: A court in Uruguay has ruled that a bronze Nazi eagle from a German destroyer that fought in one of the first naval skirmishes of World War II must be sold. Half the proceeds will go to the government and half to the salvage team that found the insignia in the River Plate off Montevideo in 2006 after a decade of searching, the ruling said. This 50-50 split is stipulated in an agreement the salvagers signed with the Uruguayan navy in 2004. The treasure hunters had filed suit arguing the government reneged on that deal. Also Read – Merkel warns UK Brexit deal ‘unlikely’ without compromise: LondonSince it was found, the sculpture — seen as likely to fetch a handsome sum at auction — from the ship called the Admiral Graf Spee has been kept in a navy warehouse. It features an eagle with its wings spread wide open and clutching a swastika in its talons. The sculpture adorned the stern of the Graf Spee, the pride of the German navy. A salvage team led by two Uruguayan brothers, Alfredo and Felipe Etchegaray, filed for permission to search for the eagle in 1997. Also Read – India, China should jointly uphold peace and stability, resolve disputes through dialogues: Chinese ambassadorThe team welcomed the ruling, which said the sculpture must be sold in 90 days. “Justice is being done,” Alfredo Etchegaray told AFP. The Graf Spee’s captain, Hans Langsdorff, scuttled the battleship on December 17, 1939 following the Battle of the River Plate. The Nazi ship, one of the Third Reich’s largest battleships, briefly sought sanctuary in Montevideo’s harbor from two British ships and a New Zealand battleship that were seeking to sink the Graf Spee. After sailing out of the harbour, Langsdorff ordered the Graf Spee scuttled — he apparently fell for a ruse designed to convince him a large British naval force was awaiting him in international waters. Several days after that humiliation, Langsdorff committed suicide.last_img read more

first_imgJulien Gignac APTN National NewsWINNIPEG – Almost half of all newborns seized by Manitoba’s child welfare services have developmental or addiction issues, according to the province’s minister of family services.Manitoba’s Chief and Family Services department seized 358 newborns between 2014 and 2015. About 45 per cent of those apprehended infants were found to have developmental or addiction issues.“In some cases, it’s because of drugs that a mother may have used prior to the birth, so there is medical detoxing that has to happen for the child,” Child and Family Services Minister Kerri Irvin-Ross. “(Apprehension) does not happen haphazardly. It is looked at as a last resort.”Provincial CFS agencies takes an average of one newborn every day. The province has one of the highest apprehension rates in Canada and it currently has about 10,000 children in care. The majority of children in care are Indigenous.The reason for the high rate of addictions and development issues in apprehended infants are deep and complicated, according to First Nations Child and Family Caring Society president Cindy Blackstock.“It’s neglect driven by poverty, poor housing and caregiver addictions that are linked to multigenerational impacts of residential schools,” she said.When child welfare assesses circumstances found at home in First Nations communities, they do not look at the causal factors or provide the necessary addictions services to help mitigate the problems, said Blackstock.Child-welfare resources are not equitable when compared to funding for non-Indigenous children, she said.Lessening potential risk by removing children from their families is not a panacea, according to Blackstock.“The root of the problem isn’t confronted,” she said. “CFS is removing these kids, but we’re not really dealing with the front end of the problem. We need to recalibrate child welfare so that child welfare itself is proving family-based treatment services at risk of losing their kids.”In 2007, the First Nations Child and Family Care Society and the Assembly of First Nations filed a human rights complaint alleging that Aboriginal Affairs and Northern development provides deplorable funding for child-welfare on reserves, far below financial support given to other Canadians.“If adequate services were provided in a non-discriminatory way to these families on reserves, some of these families would be able to care for these babies,” said Blackstock.In 2013, the Canadian Centre for Policy reported that 62 per cent of First Nations children in Manitoba live in poverty. One reason being, according to the study, is that “low-income status First Nations children are three times more likely to live in a house requiring major repairs and five times more likely to live in an overcrowded house compared to low income non-Indigenous children.”Manitoba child welfare agencies have been criticized for years for being too quick to apprehend children in some cases and for returning others repeatedly to abusive parents.The system came under harsh scrutiny a year ago when 15-year-old Tina Fontaine was killed after running away from a hotel where she was in government care. The teen’s body was found wrapped in a bag in the Red River.The province promised to stop using hotels to house young wards after a girl was seriously assaulted this summer. The victim and the youth charged were in government care at a downtown Winnipeg hotel.Manitoba’s First Nations children’s advocate recently criticized the apprehension of newborns which she said were being “shoved anywhere.” Cora Morgan said newborns are being placed in loveless shelters rather than with their parents.Irvin-Ross said the preference is always to place an apprehended child with family. Last year, only 10 infants were housed in shelters and only temporarily.The province is shifting its focus to prevention programs, the minister said, but sometimes apprehensions are unavoidable for the safety of the child.Morgan said Manitoba apprehends double the number of newborns as Alberta — a province with quadruple the population — and three times the number as Saskatchewan, which has roughly the same population.In cases she has worked on, newborns were taken from the hospital to an emergency shelter where they had limited contact with their mother, she said.Morgan suggested that if almost half the newborns Manitoba seizes have a medical issue, then there should be programs and shelters that work with mothers as opposed to shutting them out.“If you know that’s what the stats are, why are there not supports extended prenatally?”Manitoba has caught the attention of Christi Belcourt, a celebrated Metis artist in Ontario. After some research, she took to social media using the hashtag #StopStealingOurKids to denounce the apprehensions.Given 90 per cent of children in Manitoba’s care are Indigenous, Canadians have to connect the dots between residential schools and the ’60s Scoop, when Indigenous children were removed from their homes and placed with non-Indigenous families, Belcourt said.“You have to start to ask the question is this deliberate? Is there anything here that could be classified as genocide?” she said. “Is this part of a continued attempt at assimilation? We really have to take a good look at it.”Jon Gerrard, Manitoba’s lone Liberal member of the legislature and a pediatrician, said even if a mother or her baby is struggling with a medical problem, separating the two at birth is risky. The baby is deprived of the mother’s breast milk and both lose crucial time to bond.“We’ve got a minister who says she wants to do prevention,” Gerrard said. “The best place to start doing prevention is when you identify a mother who is a potential risk.” -With files from the Canadian Presslast_img read more

Complete truck testing from Daf Daf says it looked at several options before it decided to build and fit its own bodies from scratch at the Leyland Trucks plant. “We also tested conventionally bodied trucks and had some horror stories as tail-lifts and roller shutters failed or even fell off,” said John Tinsley, project manager. “But more importantly, every complete truck we build gets an accelerated durability test before it leaves the factory.

Drivers find they can use the VEDR to show a huge range of information from absent-minded pedestrians to lunatic car drivers, so they are really enthusiastic. And they know that the boss has objective information if they do have an accident.” Kane says the recorders can be set to automatically trigger if people drive harshly, for instance going too fast over speed humps. “They are an essential tool in driver training and duty of care and could give vital evidence for a company involved in a prosecution under the new Corporate Manslaughter & Homicide Act due in April 2008.

Called Oxycat, the new unit will typically cut a Euro 3 vehicle’s particulate emissions to Euro 4 levels. The firm says the device is maintenance-free and can be retrofitted to vans and light trucks up to 3.5 tonnes GVW. “We’re already selling well on the Continent where several countries offer incentives to operators that cut emissions,” says Andrew McCrea, UK managing director for the firm. With issues like the London Low Emission Zone and its emission-based entry standards, McCrae and his colleagues think the Oxycat may prove a cost-effective way to upgrade vehicles to meet tougher standards. “Unlike some devices on the market, ours costs well under £500, is entirely maintenance-free and comes with a three-year guarantee.” More from David Rowlands on +44 (0)2 074 948 050 or Water separator spray system wins first Type Approval SprayDown says its new, water separator spray suppression system has won the first Type Approval to EEC Directive 91/226. “In fact we managed a water separation value of 96% against the requirement of 85% at the VCA test,” said Steve Nesbitt, managing director. “Ours is the first air/water separator device (as against the less effective ‘absorber’ type of flap) to do this. And we’ve research from Strathclyde University to show that the aerodynamics of the system should mean around a two per cent fuel saving.

first_imgGrand requin blanc : une biologie moléculaire plus proche de l’homme que du poisson zèbreDes chercheurs américains ont étudié, à partir du cœur d’un grand requin blanc, les caractéristiques génétiques et protéiniques de cette espèce. Ils y ont trouvé, à leur grande surprise, certaines analogies avec ce qui existe dans la biologie de l’être humain. Le cœur d’un grand requin blanc (Carcharodon carcharias) : un objet d’étude de choix pour les généticiens de l’Université Cornell et de la Nova Southeastern University qui en ont analysé le transcriptome. Ce terme désigne l’ensemble des différents types d’ARN (molécules ‘copies’ de l’ADN) d’un organe. Pour en savoir plus sur le poisson cartilagineux, les scientifiques ont étudié cet ensemble en terme de génétique et de protéomique (études de protéines). Ils ont alors eu une grande surprise. En effet, ils ont découvert que le grand requin blanc présentait beaucoup plus de similitudes avec l’être humain qu’avec le poisson zèbre (Danio rerio), un petit poisson osseux de quelques centimètres, véritable référence dans les études en biologie. “Nous avons été très surpris de constater que, pour de nombreuses catégories de protéines, les requins partagent plus de similitudes avec l’homme qu’avec le poisson zèbre”, explique le Pr Michael Stanhope, de l’Université Cornell, co-auteur de l’étude publiée dans la revue BMC Genomics.”Bien que les requins et les poissons osseux ne soient pas étroitement apparentés, ils n’en sont pas moins des poissons, tandis que les mammifères ont des anatomies et des physiologies très différentes”, ajoute t-il. Des caractéristiques variéesAu vu de leurs observations, les chercheurs estiment que ces similitudes pourraient dépasser le transcriptome. “Nos découvertes ouvrent la possibilité que certains aspects du métabolisme de requin blanc, ainsi que d’autres aspects de sa biochimie en général, pourraient être plus proches de ceux d’un mammifère que de ceux d’un poisson osseux”, explique le Pr Michael Stanhope, de l’Université Cornell.Or, les requins ont de nombreuses caractéristiques fascinantes et très variables d’une espèce à l’autre. “Certains donnent naissance à des jeunes entièrement formés alors que d’autres pondent des œufs. Chez certaines espèces, les embryons mangent les œufs non encore éclos, voire les autres embryons, pendant leur développement dans l’utérus. Certains peuvent plonger très profond, d’autres non. Certains restent sédentaires, d’autres migrent à travers les bassins océaniques”, poursuit le scientifique.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ? Les requins blancs eux plongent profond, migrent sur de très longues distances et donnent naissance à des petits tout vivants. Aussi, “nous allons utiliser ce que nous avons appris sur cette espèce dans une étude comparative plus large des gènes impliqués dans ces différents comportements”, ajoute encore le Pr Stanhope.Mieux connaitre les requins pour mieux les protéger Ces travaux pourront aussi aider à mieux comprendre et donc protéger ces grands prédateurs, essentiels à l’équilibre des écosystèmes océaniques et marins. “Cette étude a multiplié par mille le nombre de marqueurs génétiques que les scientifiques peuvent utiliser pour étudier la biologie des populations de grands requins blancs et d’espèces apparentées, marqueurs avec lesquels ils espèrent étendre la connaissance de ces animaux fascinants, dont beaucoup ont un besoin urgent d’être protégés”, conclut ainsi le Dr Stanhope.Le 22 décembre 2013 à 09:57 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgAttorneys for the two defendants in the Sockeye fire case have asked for more time from the court to prepare a case for trial.Download AudioThe Sockeye Fire which devastated Willow in 2015 (Photo courtesy of the Mat-Su Borough)Today, Judge David Zwink granted their request from the bench in Palmer. According to attorney Kevin Fitzgerald, who represents Greg Imig, the state has made an offer. But Palmer District Attorney Roman Kalitiak, would not comment on what that offer might be. Kalitiak says he is reluctant to discuss details of the case, but if the state is to resolve it, there would have to be an acceptance of criminal negligence and restitution of the part of the defendants.Greg Imig and co-defendent Amy DeWitt have been charged with negligence in connection with the fire’s start in Willow on June 14 of last year. The charges against them are misdemeanors. Kalitiak says negotiations typically concern charges and sentencing, but in this case, the question of restitution is important, because of the enormity of the damages.He said on Friday that “the defense has a good knowledge of what would be acceptable to us [the state]. We are not going to give this case away.”The next pre-trial hearing is set for June 10 in Palmer, almost a year after the start of the wildfire.last_img read more

first_imgRaveena TandonInstagramDriving compelling discussions around social challenges and issues, Vidya Balan will be seen striking an engaging conversation with Raveena Tandon, Zoya Akhtar and Rajkummar Rao on the long-standing issue that the country faces when it comes to ‘Equal Pay’ on BIG FM’s show ‘Dhun Badalke Toh Dekho with Vidya Balan’.When asked whether she will agree on the existing pay gap and if she has witnessed any change over a period of time, Raveena said, “We face inequality when it comes to pay not just in the Indian film industry, but in other sectors as well. Women, unfortunately, have always had to work harder and prove that they are not only equal to their male counterparts but probably are better. While things might take time to bring about a change and balance, we can see the situation improving in our industry, where actresses are getting very well paid now, which is a good start.”Commenting on the pay gap, director Zoya Akhtar, who has time and again stood for issues that deeply affect women said, “Each case is very different. But the uniting factor here is when I am contributing X amount of work, hours and energy in return of investment made on me, I deserve to be paid equally irrespective of my gender. It’s as simple as that.”The ever-charming Rajkummar Rao, who has been vocal in favour of equal pay, said, “Of course, there should be equal pay for men and women. Your work doesn’t depend on your gender but your work. So, there has to be an equal pay.”In another segment, when the conversation veered towards the power dynamics between men and women, Swara Bhasker shared, “There is no relationship without power equation be it amongst a father – daughter or even siblings. There is always a power dynamic, which should be equal. Our constant endeavor should be to equalize the power equation especially when we have the opportunity and the equal space to do so.”Commenting on the #MeToo movement and sharing her thoughts about consent, the star added, “What is wrong is wrong irrespective of the fact who commits it. Maybe practicing this belief might get difficult and one has to pay a price but I believe it’s worth it. As a woman, one needs to take a stand on owning their body and deciding who is allowed to touch it. Through the movement, we encouraged women to be brave, break their silence and walk with freedom fearlessly without any protector”Concluding the show based on ‘What Women Want,’ Vidya said, “It is not a power struggle to understand women and be in a constant competition on who wins the reign. When men feel secure about their stance is when they can create a support system for women around them. What women really want from the men in their lives is to be considered an equal which will eventually help in changing society’s age old notions. It is very important to keep the gender aside and understand each other as an individual for a smoother ride to progress. This is the only example we can set for the coming generations.”last_img read more

In fact, just before Variety was allowed in, a group including “Tron” producer Justin Springer was ushered out of the facility. Creatives and executives sometimes use the space for retreats, or pop in to watch one of the latest VR films, which can be experienced complete with motion chairs.

But turn a corner, and you might find yourself face to face with the company’s future: An illuminated glass door displaying a glowing, animated Mickey silhouette, with the iconic mouse head morphing into play buttons, cogwheels, and networked nodes.Behind that mysterious door is the Walt Disney Studios’ StudioLab, a facility the company opened earlier this summer to explore and showcase cutting-edge technologies. Typically, the lab is only open to studio creatives and executives. But earlier this month, the company closed it down for the day to keep any still-unannounced projects safe from prying eyes, and invited Variety for a tour.

Disney has already been toying with the idea of letting producers use VR headsets to frame shots, but members of the StudioLab team quickly realized that not everyone was comfortable with the technology. That’s why it has been using the tools of the trade, including an actual camera dolly, to control virtual cameras in rendered environments. Popular on Variety StudioLab’s motion chairs and VR stations. While some of the technology shown at StudioLab may eventually find its way to theaters, VR arcades or theme parks, other prototypes are being built and tested with creatives in mind. One of the rooms houses a collection of consumer-grade drones and equipment that can be used to shoot high-quality footage with something as simple as a smartphone. Disney hasn’t used any phones to capture feature film footage yet, but is already relying on drones to scout locations, Havey explained.center_img CREDIT: Courtesy of The Walt Disney Studios The hallway of Disney’s StudioLab, complete with a prototype for a next-generation movie poster on the right.“In many ways, the lab is a roadmap,” said Walt Disney Studios VP Benjamin Havey, whose Technology Innovation Group has been spearheading the development and launch of the facility. Disney Research has been toying with far-out tech for a long time. The StudioLab is committed to innovations that are being a bit closer to product stage, explained Havey.One example for this is Disney’s attempts to reinvent the good old movie poster, which has been hanging in theater foyers for decades. The StudioLab version is based on a pencil-thin LCD display that’s mounted flush to the lab’s wall and that can be controlled from an iPad to load new content. In the future, the poster could dynamically display movie recommendations based on who is looking at it, or invite consumers to interact with it, Havey said. StudioLab is exploring ways to use traditional equipment to control virtual cameras.Disney built the StudioLab in cooperation with Cisco, Accenture and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. These partners help with finance and staffing, but also each bring their own expertise to the table, and help the studio develop new solutions for filmmakers. StudioLab includes a living room setup stacked with the latest tech.One example: Cisco and the StudioLab team are working on a new Hollywood-tailored teleconferencing solution that combines your regular video call with a high-resolution stream from a studio to preview costumes, sets, and other key aspects of a movie from across the country.Ultimately, the StudioLab wants to see some of these technologies graduate and find usage across the company, or even reach consumers’ homes. And Havey’s team of 20 isn’t running out of new ideas anytime soon: The StudioLab leadership already has 78 new project proposals lined up for review for next year, and is currently in the process of going through them to find the most promising candidates. Said Havey: “It’s a pretty exciting time for us.” CREDIT: Courtesy of The Walt Disney Studios StudioLab uses a combination of three projectors and internet-connected light bulbs to turn its hallway into a 3D projection space.The lab is also using its hallway to prototype another cutting-edge technology: A combination of projectors and internet-connected light bulbs makes it possible to project 3D scenes on three walls for a kind of glasses-free virtual reality experience. The idea behind that project is to explore ways to use 3D and VR assets in the company’s theme parks, explained Havey.The lab has been founded with the goal of letting creatives from all of the company’s film studios, including Disney Live Action, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, and Lucasfilm, benefit from emerging technologies. At the same time, it’s meant as a space for executives from across the company to learn about and test out new tech. “We want it to be half the time a lab, and half the time a showcase,” said Havey. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

first_imgIBM’s Watson has been turning out inventive culinary creations for quite some time. Now a London company wants to use AI to improve the beers they brew.A collaboration between a machine learning company and a creative firm has led to an AI application that even the least coherent of frat boys can get behind.  IntelligentX co-founder Dr. Rob McInerney refers to what they’re doing as “creativity structured by data.” That combination, he says, allows them to improve their brews “generation after generation” — something they hint at right on their labels. They display version numbers just like a piece of software.How are they gathering that data? Why, through a Facebook chatbot, of course! After lucky “beta testers” downed an IntelligentX beer, they started a chat with the ABI bot to share their thoughts about it. The data was then processed by an algorithm that allowed the company to tweak their recipe to craft an even more pleasing brew.You can see where this is headed, right? Obviously the machines are going to need to catch us unaware when they finally decide that humans have served their purpose. They’ll weaken our defenses using things like AI-perfected beer. They’ll get us drunk, catch us off-guard, and then ruthlessly round us up and feed us into some insidious machine that extracts all the useful compounds from our bodies and flushes the rest into the sewers. Combined with the robot that poops out your pills, it’s a potentially super-effective plan.Then again, maybe they’ll just keep making us new kinds of delicious, refreshing beer. It’s probably a risk worth taking.last_img read more

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Historian Rick Atkinson digs deep into Revolutionary War NEW YORK — As he researched the first volume of his planned American Revolution trilogy, Rick Atkinson travelled from the battlefields of Massachusetts to London’s Windsor Castle, where he looked through the papers of King George III.“I was there for a month and every day would show my badge at Henry VIII Gate, and climb the Round Tower,” he told The Associated Press during a recent telephone interview. “And there are the papers. It’s a very tactile sense of being in George’s presence.”Atkinson’s “The British are Coming” (Henry Holt & Co.) is his ninth book, and his first since completing his acclaimed “Liberation Trilogy” on World War II. He was a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner for The Washington Post and also won a Pulitzer in 2003 for the first of his World War II histories, “An Army at Dawn: The War in North Africa, 1942-1943.” He has been praised for combining deep research with a vivid writing style.“The British are Coming,” published this week, adds to a surprisingly thin genre: a multivolume work centred on the Revolutionary War itself. Countless books have been written on the founders, and multivolume biographies date back to the early years of the country: John Marshall, the Supreme Court chief justice, wrote five volumes on George Washington that came out in the early 1800s. But the most acclaimed books on the Revolutionary War have been single-volume publications extending beyond the British surrender, from Robert Middlekauff’s “The Glorious Cause” to John Ferling’s “A Leap in the Dark.”“Most people think of the revolution as just a series of well-known battles,” says Nathaniel Philbrick, whose books include “Bunker Hill” and “In the Hurricane’s Eye,” which covers the war’s conclusion. “They know about Lexington and Concord, and somehow things get to Valley Forge, then other stuff happens and the British surrender at Yorktown. But of course it didn’t happen that way and I don’t see a lot of multivolume treatments on it.”Ray Raphael, author of “Founders” and “A People’s History of the American Revolution,” said it was “standard wisdom” in publishing that Civil War books are more popular and more likely to inspire ambitious projects.And Atkinson acknowledges that the Revolutionary War, a means to separate from the English rather than a desire for conquest, differed from World War II “in magnitude, breadth, and consequence. ““One was a global conflagration that left 60 million dead, the other was an obscure insurgency on the edge of the world,” he says. “But in fact I find that as a writer, war is war. The struggle for survival, the fear, the exhaustion, the boredom, the utter misery, the loneliness — all are really of a piece when it comes to combat. The mystical bond between leaders and led, the willingness to die for a comrade more than dying for a cause, the struggle to stay dry, stay fed, stay low — these are eternal verities in war.”The 66-year-old Atkinson completed his World War II books in 2013, and considered writing about the conflict in the Pacific before deciding that it didn’t have “the same hold” on his interest. He instead looked to the American Revolution, a favourite subject since childhood, as a way of exploring “who we are, where we came from and what our ancestors were willing to die for.”“The British are Coming” is more than 500 pages (not including a 42-page bibliography) and covers the years 1775-77, from the first shots at Lexington and Concord to the aftermath of the battles of Trenton and Princeton, when George Washington’s battered army managed to push back against the British and revive the colonists’ hopes. Atkinson’s narrative blends general reflections on war with the most specific touches, whether the shadows cast by the elm trees on Boston Common or the amount of rum (2 ounces) that troops in Princeton, New Jersey, were encouraged to drink to maintain their courage.“Those details are the mother’s milk of narrative writing,” Atkinson says. “One of the things I found was claims made by widows of men killed in Lexington and Concord. You have widows putting in for trousers or his pipe or his musket. These are small fragments of a world destroyed, of an individual family. And it tells you something about the way society worked.”Atkinson contrasts the war’s opposing Georges: King George III and George Washington. The King George documents upended for him the image of George as a whiny “nitwit,” as immortalized in the musical “Hamilton,” or the raving monarch in Alan Bennett’s play “The Madness of King George.” He was “not easy to like,” Atkinson acknowledges, but the author found him a “formidable, interesting character,” one as likely to write down a recipe for cough syrup as make a decision on how many warships to commit to the American conflict.Washington, meanwhile, transforms during the first volume from an “aggressive and even reckless” leader with an “aloof” demeanour to a more sophisticated strategist with a growing understanding of his soldiers.“In 1775, he’s pretty unpleasant about the rabble he’s commanding,” Atkinson says. “He’s very snide about the army he’s taken over, but over the first two years this mystical bond develops between the commander and commanded. He recognizes that he must learn to lead them. He writes very eloquently about a people not used to being commanded. He realizes that they cannot be driven, they must be led.”Hillel Italie, The Associated Press by Hillel Italie, The Associated Press Posted May 14, 2019 10:32 am PDT This cover image released by Henry Holt and Company shows “The British Are Coming,” by Rick Atkinson.
