Writing about dress colors isn’t usually in our wheelhouse, but given how the sports world was responding to the viral debate regarding this photo Thursday night, we figured we’d get involved. We also figured we’d update you on the answer to the debate, as well as the reason that people are seeing the same dress in such drastically different colors.First, for those who haven’t seen the photo before – see below. Some people see it as white and gold, while others see it as blue and black.In the morning when I was looking at that dress, it was black&blue now in the evening its white&gold! WTF? HOW? :DDD pic.twitter.com/lwS8oQlcvx— Laura Slivka (@zeGoattt) February 27, 2015In reality, the dress is blue and black. That will probably shock half of you out there, but it’s true.Hey everyone, you can buy the dress yourself and see that it’s blue and black #whiteandgold #blackandblue #yallidiots pic.twitter.com/7XkMgMPFvi— Max (@thabaerjew) February 27, 2015So why is the world split on this? Wired probably has the best explanation we’ve seen out there. In short, a given person’s visual system is either discounting the color blue or the color gold involuntarily.This image, though, hits some kind of perceptual boundary. That might be because of how people are wired. Human beings evolved to see in daylight, but daylight changes color. That chromatic axis varies from the pinkish red of dawn, up through the blue-white of noontime, and then back down to reddish twilight. “What’s happening here is your visual system is looking at this thing, and you’re trying to discount the chromatic bias of the daylight axis,” says Bevil Conway, a neuroscientist who studies color and vision at Wellesley College. “So people either discount the blue side, in which case they end up seeing white and gold, or discount the gold side, in which case they end up with blue and black.” (Conway sees blue and orange, somehow.)Business Insider also has a decent writeup on the situation.The sports world has been having a field day relating this to team colors. Coach Cal made a joke last night. Duke basketball made another this morning. It probably won’t end for some time.
The Best American Liqueur Maestro Dobel Diamante Blends 3 Tequilas Into One Editors’ Recommendations The Best Drinks to Pair With Your Favorite Food Shows Culturally significant liquors don’t need to be ancient to have weight, just take a look at Denmark’s Gammel Dansk.The spirit, meaning “Old Danish” in English, first saw light of day in 1964 as Danish Distillers’ factory manager and master blender J.K. Asmund experimented.“This factory is in need of a new product if it is hoping to continue,” Asmund said, according to the Gammel Dansk website. “I am a man to make a new product. I have studied herbs and have an idea of how a new drink should be made.” Pretty bold, Asmund, pretty bold.Although the complete recipe is a secret, it’s known that there are 29 herbs, spices and flowers in the recipe, ranging from gooseberries to star anise to orange and cinnamon, which sit in a clear spirit for three months. According to the distillery, a base recipe could date to the 16th century.A few years following the initial development, production of Gammel Dansk began in earnest and quickly become a brand associated with Danes, now selling more than 4 million liters annually. It’s the nation’s second best selling spirit behind aquavit.The liquor is bitter and caught on with the Danish back in the 1960s when they were commonly drinking bitter spirits in the morning. The bottles of Gammel Dansk also note the spirit’s suitability for other activities Danes enjoy, “Enjoyable in the morning, after a day’s work, when hunting or fishing, or as an aperitif,” the bottle reads in Danish. Though we’re not sure if we can get behind a bitter morning shot.The light brown spirit smells of pepper, cinnamon and clove, starting with bitter tannic juniper before transitioning to sweeter fruits and a licorice finish.Most often served room temperature in shot glasses, Gammel Dansk is a quick drink of celebration, whether it’s Christmas, Easter, a wedding or birthday, or a simple successful hunting trip. The 38 perecent ABV spirit can also be mixed with milk for a traditional cocktail.The distiller recently released Old Danish Shot, which adds chili to the classic recipe, adding a warm complement to the original spirit.Production of the Danish Distillers brands of Gammel Dansk and Aalborg Aquavit moved to Norway in 2015, according to The Local dk, an English Danish news site. Aside from where it’s produced, nothing else has changed.“It is a very important brand,” said Lars Kragelund of the Norwegian firm Arcus Gruppen in the story. “And we think it is important to hold tight to the fantastic history created by Aalborg Akvavit.” 9 Best Spirits For Spiked Apple Cider Learning All About Aquavit with Christian Krogstad

For the first time, Native American artists will be standing up to celebrate a major nomination during this year’s MTV Video Music Awards in the newly-added “Best Fight Against the System” category.The music video “Stand Up / Stand N Rock #NoDAPL” was recorded by Taboo of Black Eyed Peas and “Magnificent Seven” Native American artists from different tribes, including Zack “Doc” Battiest, Spencer Battiest, Emcee One, Drezus, PJ Vegas, SupaMan, Natalia Aka “My Verse.” The song serves as a statement of support to those who have embraced the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in their fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). Native American actor Martin Sensmeier and pipeline activist Shailene Woodley also make appearances in the nominated music video.Taboo, who has Shoshone Tribe heritage, and other Native American artists including those from the Seminole Tribe of Florida, banded together to create the song, which is meant to serve as both a tool to promote awareness, as well as an anthem for the indigenous people across the country who have united in the effort against the DAPL. The video features real footage from the water protectors on the front lines at Standing Rock, and looks to rally people from across the country and draw together the Native communities of North America in an unprecedented way.“The purpose of this video was to shine the light on this very important cause – pairing that with recognition from MTV is incredible,” said Spencer Battiest, Hard Rock Records alumnus, member of the Seminole Tribe of Florida and one of the “Magnificent Seven.” “This song is the only one nominated without a record label, which I think is very powerful and special – and we’re proud to be doing our part to raise awareness for native issues.”The addition of the “Best Fight Against the System” category was added to the 2017 MTV VMAs to continue reflecting the audience’s passion and activism around social justice issues such as environmental justice, immigration, LGBTQ equality and racial justice. Fans can cast their vote now through August 27th at 3 p.m. as a means of supporting the Native American artists and spreading awareness of #NoDAPL and other indigenous resistance messages. The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards will air live from The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. on Sunday, August 27 at 8 p.m. ET.
22 October 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today pledged full United Nations support to help Africa address the needs of some 14 million refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) driven from their homes by fighting and prevent the conflicts that caused their plight. “In seeking to bring peace and prevent conflict across the continent, the African Union (AU) is an indispensable partner of the United Nations,” he said in a message to an AU special summit on refugees, returnees and IDPs delivered by UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres.“Together, we must work harder to ensure compliance with international humanitarian law and human rights law, and to implement conflict prevention and resolution measures, particularly in the face of politically motivated violence.”Although the number of refugees in Africa today is about one fifth its peak in the mid-1990s, there are nearly 12 million people forcibly displaced by conflict within their own countries in Africa, nearly five times the number of refugees, and when persons displaced by causes other than conflict are included, the figure is even higher, Mr. Ban declared.“Everyone displaced by conflict or natural disaster is an individual – a person, likely a woman or child, who may be undernourished and living in fear of recruitment or rape, a person whose potential remains unrealized, with dreams unfulfilled and contributions forgone,” he stressed. “You have come together to forge a better future.“I commend the summit’s emphasis on addressing root causes and preventing the conflicts that give rise to displacement. At the same time, let us remember that disasters, particularly slow-onset disasters such as drought, are also a major cause of internal displacement,” he added, calling for investment in disaster risk reduction.Likewise, it is vital that December’s meeting in Copenhagen on global warming provide for adaptation measures addressing the heightened vulnerability of Africans to climate-change-induced displacement, he said.He underlined the importance not only of preventing displacement but also of protecting those already displaced. “Millions remain in protracted displacement for years, and even generations, after they have fled their homes,” he said. “Finding durable solutions for them is one of the greatest challenges in post-crisis situations.“Reconstruction and development, and the reestablishment of law and order, are critical for the displaced to successfully reintegrate with safety and dignity.”
Mr. Al-Atiyyeh expressed the support of the six GCC member States – Kuwait, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain – for the implementation of Security Council Resolution 1559 and praised the UN Secretary-General’s work in Lebanon, according to the spokesman.Resolution 1559 calls for an end to foreign influence in Lebanon, the disarming and disbanding of militias and the holding of free and fair presidential elections. Last year, Syria complied with the text’s provision calling for the withdrawal of foreign forces from Lebanon.Today, Mr. Roed-Larsen met with the Secretary-General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), Ekkmeleddin Ihsanoglu, in Jeddah, before departing Saudi Arabia for Egypt, where he will confer with the Secretary-General of the League of the Arab States, Amre Moussa, and the Egyptian Foreign Minister, Ahmed Aboulgheit.

The Ohio State men’s basketball team extended its winning streak to four games Saturday night when the Buckeyes defeated Nebraska in Lincoln, Neb., 63-56. The No. 11-ranked Buckeyes advanced to 17-4 on the season and 7-2 in Big Ten play after the win. Nebraska proved to be a much tougher opponent than it was in the teams’ first meeting of the season on Jan. 2, when OSU dispatched the Huskers, 70-44, at the Schottenstein Center. Saturday, Nebraska gave the Buckeyes all they could handle for a good portion of the first half and even led twice. The Buckeyes received sporadic production from junior forward Deshaun Thomas, who scored 15 points but struggled while doing so. The Big Ten’s leading scorer connected on just 6-of-18 shots, as he was constantly double-teamed and harassed by Husker defenders. While Thomas was fairly inefficient with his scoring, Lenzelle Smith Jr. was anything but. The junior guard made all six of his field goal attempts for a game-high and season-high 21 points. OSU’s 15-4 run at the end of the first half, to which Thomas contributed five points and Smith Jr. added two, seemed to drain some energy out of the home crowd and the Huskers, giving OSU the momentum. The Buckeyes carried that momentum into the second half, and expanded their lead to as much as 15 points. But the resilient Huskers would not go away. Nebraska slowly chipped away at OSU’s lead, in large part because of senior center and defensive anchor Andre Almeida. The 6-foot-11, 314-pound Almeida made it difficult for OSU to find easy looks in the paint, and as the Buckeyes struggled to find scores, Nebraska cut the margin to five points with just more than a minute left to play. The Huskers couldn’t knock down a few open shots in the closing minute, however, and OSU put the game away from the free-throw line. Nebraska falls to 11-12 on the season and to 2-8 in Big Ten play. The Buckeyes remain perfect against their newest conference foe. Since the Huskers joined the Big Ten in 2011, OSU is 4-0 against Nebraska. After struggling to put away one of the Big Ten’s bottom feeders, the Buckeyes will now move into what could be their toughest week of the season. OSU is set to play No. 1 Michigan Tuesday in Ann Arbor, Mich., before taking on No. 3 Indiana on Sunday.
WellDog has commercialised an innovative coal gas testing technology which it says, for the first time, “will allow mining companies to accurately detect and map underground gas characteristics before mining without drilling the extra wells required by slower and more expensive core sampling techniques.” “This technology can save lives,” said John M. Pope, President and CEO of WellDog. The new technology is already helping major mining companies in Australia and southern Africa optimise mine designs and identify safety risks before commencing mining operations, potentially slashing more than 30% off drilling-related exploration costs and cutting years from new mine lead times while identifying high levels of greenhouse gases that can be mitigated by pre-drainage instead of emitted into the atmosphere.Two of the biggest safety risks in mining are coal gas outbursts and explosions, which can occur when gases, specifically methane and carbon dioxide, stored under pressure in a coal seam are forcefully ejected or ignited.Pope notes that safety is a worldwide issue and Australia’s stringent safety testing requirements and movement to deeper, gassier coal seams provided the perfect environment in which to develop and refine the new technical service. “We combined gas testing technology from the USA with Australia’s unique open hole coal permeability testing technology to develop a tool that measures both gas content and permeability at the same time in existing exploration holes,” he said.Pope said across the world coal exploration was going deeper than ever before, presenting increased challenges for mine safety management. “Companies are encountering more gas under higher pressures, which has created a need for this more accurate, cost-effective and reliable technical service,” he said. “But we believe the greatest benefit of this technology will be in areas where a general lack of infrastructure and services do not allow assessment of gas safety and emission risks before underground mines are built. Our technical service is highly portable and suitable for use in remote locations with minimal infrastructure.”Current methods of detecting methane and carbon dioxide characteristics require special wells to be drilled and core samples to be extracted and sent to laboratories, a difficult process that often takes many months and can be prone to errors in areas with limited laboratory infrastructure and few experienced laboratory staff or with coals that are difficult to handle.WellDog’s technical service uses a unique combination of technologies to deliver conclusive results within hours or days at the mine site, and with 30% fewer wells. Pope said WellDog is actively marketing the GasMapper service worldwide, including to Australia, the US, Africa, South America, Asia, and Europe.
Goldcorp says it is embracing innovation to make our operations safer, more productive and to help reduce our impact on the environment. “We partner with like-minded suppliers and organisations to find innovative solutions to some of the challenges our industry faces. One such collaboration between Goldcorp’s Red Lake Gold Mines (RLGM) and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) is producing promising results. NSERC are engaged with universities and the mining industry in many projects to better understand equipment safety and maintenance, especially with new intelligent predictive maintenance strategies, as well as dealing with environmental concerns to improve the extraction process of metals.”An area of interest is the development of new technologies and maintenance tools to properly detect failing equipment. Mining equipment represents huge capital costs and failures can cause operational delays, lost production and reduce efficiencies. Additionally, maintenance can consume up to 15% of an equipment’s total operating time.One RLGM and NSERC project, an intelligent system for fault diagnostics in mining equipment, is led by Professor Wilson Wang from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario. “It aims to recognise machinery defects at the earliest stage to prevent further degradation or malfunction, and to reduce maintenance costs associated with the unnecessary downtime for traditional or routine preventive maintenance. Costs can be further reduced by quickly identifying the damaged component without examining the vast number of machinery parts involved. RLGM’s excellent maintenance department offers the project support, performing routine condition monitoring, maintenance and repair operations of different types of mining equipment, and in-kind contributions consisting of technical guidance on the overall project direction along with participation in the research and technology development.”Another NSERC project entitled “Mine Safety System Using Wireless Sensor Networks”, is led by Professor Salama Ikki, also from Lakehead University. One aim of this project will be to cultivate highly specialised expertise to develop wireless systems, and build local competence with well-trained graduates who are proficient in the advanced and complex fields that are emerging in mining.An additional area of NSERC’s research and development is with Professor Pedram Fatehi at Lakehead University’s Chemical department, regarding dispersants to treat waste effluents and improve the thickening performance of mineral processes. Lignin-based chemicals are potentially less expensive and more efficient than oil-based chemicals. “Tall oil lignin-based flocculants can be heavily used in thickeners for improving the settling ability of solid particles in gold extraction process and in treating tailing pond effluents. The use of lignin-based flocculants can potentially reduce operational costs and the environmental footprint of our industry.”RLGM and NSERC are also working on “Development of nanocomposite adsorbents for arsenic removal” with Professor Zhibin Ye at Concordia University in Montreal. “This research could be very beneficial in the removal and disposal of arsenic from gold mine effluent streams at our sites. The work will involve development of metal oxide nanocomposite adsorbent technology that has shown favourable results for arsenic adsorption. This may translate into a cost-effective and efficient solution for arsenic removal at mining sites. It will also entail reusing water from tailings facilities, reducing the use of fresh water and bring Goldcorp closer to its goal of H2Zero.”Also in development is an electrolytic cell for cyanide destruction. The research is conducted with Professor Eduard Guerra, Bharti School of Engineering, and Professor Jeffrey L. Shepherd, Chemistry and Biochemistry Department, Laurentian University, Sudbury on “Development of an Electrolytic Cell for Cyanide Destruction.” Currently RLGM is using the INCO Process which is expensive as it requires a detoxification agent – specifically So2. The new proposed method is the electrochemical route to destroy cyanide complexes using a cell that is similar to those used in zinc electrowinning.“Goldcorp and RLGM are enthusiastic about the potential benefits of these research and development projects and will look for further opportunities for collaboration with Canadian universities to find new and innovative solutions to challenges in our industry.”

Shah Rukh KhanBen Pruchnie/Getty ImagesAfter the failure of Shah Rukh Khan’s last film Zero, fans are curious to know about SRK’s next movie. Although there has not been any declaration on those lines, the superstar has now spoken about his upcoming project.Shah Rukh during a recent interview after being honoured with a doctorate degree from the University of Law in London, made an interesting statement when asked about his next film.A video from the interview has been doing the rounds on social media that shows Shah Rukh saying that his next role will be “as sexy as you want” to be.”My next role will be as sexy as my last one. So you want me to be a sexy father, a sexy hero, sexy whatever you want me to be. My next role will be as sexy as you want me to be,” SRK told BBC.The actor during the same interview spoke about the progressive changes that have come for women in the industry in the current time. He appreciated the changing “attitude” of people for women at the workplace.”The roles of women and the kind of attitude you have at the workplace for women is changing for positive. There will be discrepancies and ups and downs too. There were times when I was working in the ’90s that if a lady got married, she normally did not have the opportunity to come back and act in a film but now all of them are acting in films and its so seamless and nice, so I think lots of positive stuff for female actors in the film industry,” he said.Shah Rukh has been having a dull phase since at the box office since quite some time. Zero was a highly anticipated film, and its failure has not only disappointed his fans but apparently affected SRK too. However, the actor appears to have moved on from the debacle and is now all set to surprise fans with a new project.”I want to make ppl happy now personally and change their lives” This beaming face adds more attraction to his wizard, appealing charisma@iamsrk ❤ and his interview for @bbcasiannetwork after receiving his 4th doctorate speaking about #MeToo movement#UniversityOfLawHonoursSRK pic.twitter.com/MF9gcTni4o— ѕαмα мσнαмє∂??
