NWS Winter Storm Warning On Seward Highway Turnagain Arm

first_imgKaitlyn O’Brien with the NWS in Anchorage: “What we are expecting is heavy snow with snow accumulations of 18-30 inches, and it’s possible that we’ll see some localized amounts up to 36 inches.”  A Winter Storm Warning for snow means severe winter weather conditions will make travel very hazardous. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency. A band of very heavy snow is currently over the region north of Moose Pass, including the Seward Highway through Turnagain Pass. Snowfall rates of up to 6 inches per hour have been observed through Turnagain Pass. According to an advisory from the Department of Transportation, travel is nearly impossible due to very heavy snow. Expect significant  reductions in visibility. O’Brien: “Travel will be difficult through that heavy snow, and not possible at all in some areas. We are expecting very low visibility through that area.”  center_img Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the Seward Highway around the Turnagain Arm area effective until noon, on Thursday. The snow band is expected to remain nearly stationary through Thursday morning, contributing to the very high snowfall totals. For the latest road conditions call 5 1 1 or visit 511.alaska.gov.

Builders in Anchorage await a miniboom from earthquake repairs

first_imgOver the weekend, the Alaska Airlines Center hosted the Anchorage Home Show, filling up with business booths advertising everything one could ever need to transform a house. The industry event brings together realtors, tree surgeons, asphalt experts, Tupperware merchants and every service in between.“Since the Earthquake we’ve had people who have been inquiring and I think they’ve been waiting to see the snow melt and get real damage reports. But it appears there’s going to be quite a bit,” said Darren Williams, manager of residential sales for Spenard Builder Supply.The company had a spacious walk-in display, modeled like a classy new kitchen. According to Williams, plenty of people have started wandering into SBS locations to begin figuring out home repairs. The projects run the gamut, from cracked sheet rock to righting whole foundations. It’s prompting a lot of businesses in the construction and building sector to anticipate a surge in demand over the coming months. But from where Williams sits, that boom is still on the horizon.“People aren’t buying stuff to fix it yet,” he said. “There’s a lot of quotes, and a lot of people talking about it, but I think as far as real business where it turns into dollars, it is when they start coming in and have to pay for it and actually get it done.”“People haven’t got there yet,” he added.Williams thinks the other reason cash hasn’t started to flow is that people are still navigating the process to receive recovery funds from insurance and FEMA.For 21 years, Cody Lee has run a medium-sized construction business in Anchorage. Since the earthquake, the advice he’s given home-owners about repairs and remodeling is to just hang tight.“We’ve been telling people to wait until the aftershocks quit and the frost came out of the ground,” Lee said at his booth. “I didn’t want to get started too early on it and people have to end up doing it twice.”Lee is handling his existing clients before taking on new customers later this season. He, too, has a rosy outlook for his business. But its based less on people fixing actual earthquake damage than those repairs inspiring property-owners to use the opportunity for other home-improvement projects.“We get a lot of that ‘well you’re here, go ahead and take care of this’ type of stuff,” Lee said. “The earthquake stuff is business obviously, but it’s not exactly fun work that we like to do.”For Lee, “fun work” means a new deck or a kitchen remodel. Projects that improve daily lives.There might be more of that in the next couple months that you’d expect. Anchorage’s housing market may have survived the earthquake relatively unharmed. After the quake there was concern potential home-buyers would be wary of a major investment that could literally collapse around them. But realtor Debraly Gamache’s work has not slowed down.“I haven’t really noticed a difference at all,” she said.In fact, Gamache thinks the housing market is actually beginning to creep upwards. One change she has noticed since the quake: housing inspections involve more thorough hunts for typical earthquake injuries.“So far, what I’m seeing is everything looks really, really good,” Gamache said, attributing the housing stock’s solid performance to the municipality’s building codes.Some financial institutions are also looking to seize on new quake-related business. The Alaska Housing Finance Corporation is hoping property-owners looking to pay for damages will go a step further by taking advantage of a flexible loan program they offer that covers additional improvements.“Our theme for this convention is: on a scale of 1 to 7.2, how badly does your house need renovation?” said Mark Romick, deputy executive director for AHFC.As a public corporation, AHFC is set up to take on more risk than most lenders. They not only help property-owners secure loans at a lower rate, but will also base loans on the projected value of a completed home project, rather than just the original purchase price. These particular renovation loans aren’t new for AHFC, but the November earthquake created an opportunity to highlight them for Alaskans.“I think we all anticipate that this summer will be a very busy one for renovation contractors and other people, so homeowners can get their houses fixed,” Romick said.With the state still in recession, and in a city without much new construction, the building sector is banking on a silver-lining to the November earthquake. Vendors and business booths filled the floor of the Alaska Airlines Center during the Anchorage Home Show (Photo: Zachariah Hughes – Alaska Public Media, Anchorage)With Southcentral Alaska’s post-winter thaw underway, a more complete picture of damage from last November’s powerful earthquake is starting to emerge. Though many marveled at how well buildings and infrastructure held up, there’s still plenty of subtle damage that has remained buried under snow. And it is fueling optimism for a mini boom in the region’s construction industry.last_img read more

Report Netflix to Buy LAs Egyptian Theatre

first_img What to Stream on Netflix This Weekend11 Other Old-School Nick Shows That Should Get Netflix Movies Stay on target In an apparent response to streaming-service haters, Netflix is reportedly in talks to buy an L.A.-based movie theater.The company is eyeing American Cinematheque’s esteemed Egyptian Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard.As noted by Deadline, this would be the first brick-and-mortar cinema acquisition for Netflix.And likely its last.The deal, rumored to be in the “many tens of millions of dollars,” could put Netflix in good standing with the cinephile community. Or at least help qualify original films for the Academy Awards.Hollywood legend Steven Spielberg recently pooh poohed streaming movies as Oscar contenders—days after Netflix walked away from the annual event with three golden statues for Alfonso Cuarón’s stunning Roma.Spielberg, part of the Academy’s directors branch, allegedly wants new eligibility rules disqualifying films that debut on streaming services or have short theatrical runs.Banning streaming platforms from the Oscars, however, could raise antitrust concerns and violate competition law, according to the U.S. Department of Justice, which warned the Academy against limiting the eligibility of Netflix and its ilk.A Netflix-owned cinema would mean longer (if not unlimited) viewing seasons for original content—including Roma, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Bird Box, Unicorn Store, Velvet Buzzsaw, and maybe even series Our Planet, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, or Queer Eye.It also means preserving one of Los Angeles’s landmark movie theaters.Built by Sid Grauman (of nearby El Capitan and Chinese Theatre fame) for $800,000, the Egyptian was the venue for the first-ever Hollywood premiere—Douglas Fairbanks’ Robin Hood—in October 1922.As Hollywood declined in the 1980s and early ’90s, the Egyptian closed and fell into disrepair. It was sold in 1996 by the city of Los Angeles to the American Cinematheque for a measly $1, with the provision the landmark building would be restored and reopened as a movie theater.After a $12.8 million renovation, the cinema—featuring two theaters (one, ironically, seemingly named after Steven Spielberg)—resumed operations in late 1998.Nearly 20 years later, Netflix hopes to take over the building, in what sources told Deadline would serve as “something of a partnership,” with Netflix offering screenings on weekday nights (alongside the occasional special event), while Cinematheque runs screenings, lectures, and festivals on weekends.Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos, a board member of American Cinematheque, reportedly recused himself from voting; negotiations will not be finalized until issues involving real estate and city permits are settled, Deadline said.Netflix did not immediately respond to Geek’s request for comment.More on Geek.com:John Cho Headlines Live-Action ‘Cowboy Bebop’ on NetflixNetflix Price Hikes Will Hit Some U.S. Subscribers Soon‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 Trailer Teases a Retro Teenage Wastelandlast_img read more

Qantas pilots ballot for strike

first_imgQantas pilots could be walking off the job, as the group’s union said it is confident it will receive enough votes during the ballot for industrial action.The Australian and International Pilots Association vice-president Richard Woodward said earlier this week that up to 1700 pilots will vote over the next four weeks on a two-day stoppage, The Australian reported.”We surveyed our members long before we got to this point and we got overwhelming support to take the actions we’re taking,” he said.”We hope to see a reinforcement of that in the official ballot.” The union said that the cause for strike comes as talks have “stalled” over pilot job security and pay increase of up to 2.5 percent a year.Mr Woodward added that although industrial action could affect passenger travel, the reason behind the strike would be clear to travellers.”Our preference, of course, has always been to negotiate,” Mr Woodward added.”Everything we’ve put forward is negotiable, including our pay claim, to get the Qantas flight-Qantas pilot written into our contract. (Qantas chief executive) Alan (Joyce) is refusing to do that — saying absolutely never, etcetera — simply because he’s working to an agenda to offshore and outsource the airline into some other entity.” Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.Jlast_img read more

run-up to the 2014 parliamentary elections Chandrababu Naidu sprang a surprise by aligning with the BJP and accepting theleadership of Narendra Modi as the prime ministerial candidate in the "larger interest of the nation" He then called their alliance as a "lucky combination" and predicted that the NDA would record a "landslide" victory and he was not wrong Naidu joining hands with Modi was big news then He was taken as asincere mature and influential leader who could turn the tide in Andhra Pradesh and also send a message across the nation that allies were coming to Modi’s fold irrespective of the communal vitriol latter’s rivals had unleashed against himFile image of Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu AP By deciding to remove two of its ministers from the Union Council of Ministers Naidu has now delivered another surprise Though the 2019 parliamentary election and Andhra Pradesh Assembly election are over one year away the political positioning has certainly started By pulling out his ministers and targeting the Centre for "betrayal" of promise to designate Andhra Pradesh as "special category status" state Naidu is trying to whip up popular passions in the state against the BJP and the Modi government He would like to build an impression that the Central government led by the BJP is acting as a villain not giving it enough financial grant to let the state which was bifurcated four years ago develop to its potential It means that whatever good works are seen in Andhra Pradesh is due to his governance and whatever bad which people could perceive in the state was because of the noncooperation from the Central government That way he would be able to shift the anti-incumbency against him and his party—TDP—to somewhere else In this case it’s the BJP Whether that’s a smart political strategy or is counterproductive would be known in due course But Naidu is not alone in politics of raising a fallacious demand of ‘special category status’ state His rival YSR Congress chief Jaganmohan Reddy too is in the fray raising the same cause perhaps slightly more vociferously A three-time chief minister and an important player in the United Front government as also in NDA1 (led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee) and NDA 2 (led by Narendra Modi) Naidu very well knows that there is no way that the Centre could give Andhra Pradesh status of special category state because no such category exists after the 14th Finance Commission A senior official pointed out to Firstpost "Special category status was a nomenclature coined by erstwhile Planning Commission and since the Planning Commission ceased to exist to give way to NITI Aayog that category too ceased to exit" Planning Commission too had modified that categorisation The official went on detailing how Finance Commission worked out new formulas for additional grants to states and how special benefits were reserved only for northeastern states and three hill states of Himachal Pradesh Uttrakhand and Jammu and Kashmir Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has explained on multiple occasions that post-14th Finance Commission there was no such thing as special category status state but the Centre was committed to providing all those benefits including 90:10 grant in Central schemes (90 percent by Central government and 10 percent by state in contrast to other states where the Centre would provide 60 percent and states would provide 40 percent) He gave vent to his frustration with ally TDP by saying "sentiments do not decide the quantum of funds" Way back in September 2016 Naidu had "welcomed" similar announcement made by Jaitley – Centre providing monetary benefits to the state equivalent to special category status – and admitting that there was no other alternative The question is why Naidu being fully aware of the actual situation both legal and political continues to make an unrealistic demand of special category and appears to be an errant ally A central BJP leader who belongs to Andhra Pradesh said "He has fallen victim of competitive politics and walked into thetrap laid by Jaganmohan Reddy Jaganmohan has nothing to lose by raising these demands and take it all to a highly emotive pitch but Naidu is chief minister and an ally at the Centre His stakes are far higher than a leader in the state but he now has gone to a point from where he would find his return to be very difficult" Another BJP leader from the same state was blunt in his response "We are fed up with Chandrababu’s tantrums We have given more than promised and are committed to doing more The party is not going to take it lying down We are going to go to the people and highlight what all the Centre has done and how the chief minister has failed them He imprudent decision may come to us as an opportunity in expanding our base and focus on coming elections on our own" he said He claimed that out of Rs 7 lakh crore spent on national highways in the entire nation Rs1 lakh crore was spent in Andhra Pradesh a petrochemical hub with an expenditure of Rs 14 lakh crore was being set up in the state all national institutions IIT AIIMS IIM NIIT have been opened there out of Rs 20 lakh crore spent for Pradhan Pamntri Awas Yojna for urban poor in the nation Rs7 lakh crore have been spent in Andhra Pradesh He continued with this list Naidu is apparently following the trajectory of another on-off-on BJP ally from the north Nitish Kumar In the latter part of 2012 Nitish had begun charting separate ground from the BJP by raising special category status demand for Bihar Nitish could never get special status for Bihar because Planning Commission had changed norms It’s a different matter though that he dumped BJP in 2013 in protest of Modi becoming the prime ministerial candidate only to join hands with Modi and BJP again in 2017 It’s a fact that in the Modi regime Naidu does not wield thesame clout as he used to do during the Vajpayee regime in NDA1 – primarily because unlike Vajpayee regime Modi regime is not dependant on Naidu’s support In 2004 Naidu had made a mistake by calling an early election as Vajpayee-Advani had done for the parliamentary election Naidu had fought that election as an ally of the BJP and had hoped that an assassination bid on him would generate sympathy factor for him in elections He lost badly in elections About one-and-half decade later he trying a different path – separate from BJP and create an emotive pitch for self and TDP on the issue of special category state Is he making a mistake Or has just pulled a political ace Stephen J O’Brien NCI/University of Delaware Stephen J O’Brien has left the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI’s) Laboratory of Genomic Diversity after 25 years as its head to help jump-start genome bioinformatics at St Petersburg University in Russia Last fall O’Brien was awarded a 3-year $5 million "megagrant" from the Russian Ministry of Education and Science a program started in 2010 to boost Russian science by attracting big-name researchers to work at least part-time in that country Though a cancer institute researcher O’Brien had also concentrated on comparative genetic studies to understand the evolution and conservation of mammals In 2009 he and two others started the Genome 10K project a call for the sequencing of 10000 vertebrates However NCI was becoming ever less supportive of nonhuman research and "the list of things they didn’t want me to do was longer than the list of things they wanted me to" says O’Brien He says he knew his work with the Genome 10K project would be limited and that he wouldn’t be able to accept the megagrant while still working for NCI So last month he retired from NCI The megagrants program has gotten mixed reviews Yet O’Brien
