Corks fly in wine truck fire in Wyoming, US

Author:  |  Category: Uncategorized

Sunday, September 6, 2009 

In Wamsutter, Wyoming, US, a fire crew were trying to put out a fire of a wine truck on a highway when they received an unexpected surprise.

Wine corks started to burst out of the wreckage as bottles started to explode from the heat. Wyoming Highway Patrol Lt. Scott Keane said: “The corks were popping out of the bottles like the old Jiffy Pop (popcorn) we grew up with. My trooper got hit in the arm with one.”

But luckily, as Keane commented, no one was killed or seriously injured and the truck driver managed to escape the fire, which occurred on Thursday after a crash on Interstate 80.

The intensity of the fire caused the tires on the trailer to melt down and the trailer to burn down to its wheel axles, damaging 75 feet of pavement in the process.

Keane stated that the cause of the fire was likely to be either a locked brake or a hub malfunction. It is currently unknown what the value of the loss in the fire was. The Wyoming Department of Transportation have commented that there was nothing left of the cab or trailer and the remaining bottles of wine from Oregon and Washington had disappeared overnight.

Formula One driver Jules Bianchi dies aged 25

French Formula One (F1) driver Jules Bianchi died on Friday night at age 25, nine months after his serious accident at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix. News of his death was announced by his family the following morning:

This is the first F1 race-related driver death since the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, when Ayrton Senna was killed.

On October 5, 2014, at the late portion of the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka Circuit, Bianchi collided with a tractor crane that had been attending to the crashed car of Adrian Sutil. Bianchi’s helmet became wedged underneath the tractor, causing a diffuse axonal injury, and he fell into a coma. After being treated at a Japanese medical centre, he was moved about two months after the accident to a hospital in Nice. Placed in the intensive care unit, in December he began rehabilitation therapy. Bianchi’s father, Philippe, described his non-progress as a “daily torture”.

Bianchi, the 2007 French Formula Renault and 2009 Formula 3 Euro Series champion, was the inaugural member of the Ferrari Driver Academy. He joined F1 team Force India in 2012. In 2013, he joined Marussia F1; the following year, at the 2014 Monaco Grand Prix, he scored his and Marussia’s first points with a ninth-place finish.

After the accident, the FIA, which sanctions Formula One racing, formed a panel to investigate the crash. Afterwards, the group revealed its findings: as Bianchi entered the run-off area of the track, he disabled the failsafe mechanism by “[applying] both throttle and brake together, using both feet”, while his front wheels were locked; the panel also stated he did not slow down enough to control his car. Eventually, F1 mandated the use of the “virtual safety car”, which requires drivers to enter the pit lane at slower speeds instead of proceeding around the track.

This is the Bianchi family’s second driver death. Lucien Bianchi, the 1968 24 Hours of Le Mans winner and Jules’s great uncle, was killed in 1969 during testing at Circuit de la Sarthe, where the 24 Hours of Le Mans race is held.

Upon the news of his death, many drivers sent their condolences through social media. Bianchi’s Marussia team mate Max Chilton tweeted, “No words can describe what his family and the sport have lost. All I can say [is] it was a pleasure knowing and racing you.”

United states of America continues to be the highest most vacation spot for worldwide pupils, and why don\’t you, the top colleges in just about any discipline are in this particular fantastic nation. Every year a huge number of global pupils come to Usa for graduation/other greater levels in Engineering, Drugs, Control, Legislation and so on. The data underneath is actually dedicated to getting a College student visa (frequently called because Fone or perhaps F-1 visa), some helpful information around the university application method and potential clients immediately after an individual total your review are also coated.

Institutions require these types of adhering to paperwork

* Composed application to the school

* Institution\’s training course criteria for admission (i.e. TOEFL Or SAT/ GRE etc.)

* Past or present student\’s earlier academic report as well as economic support evidence.

— A good acceptance notice allowing the actual university student to study.

— Passport

Following this institutions could concern Form I-20 necessary with regard to F-1 College student mastercard. Students need to take in which form to their nearest People consulate along with Passport, Credit fee, Type OF-156 (Software for a Nonimmigrant Charge), files indicating proof regarding monetary assistance as well as documents proving adequate neckties for you to house country.

In case the pupil is just not offered H-1 visa, rather than pursuing reports throughout Usa anymore, the person must come back back for their home place.

Various other University student VISA\’s

* J-1, or Trade Visitor. College students collaborating in an trade customer program while in the U.S

* M-1, or perhaps Student Credit Individuals who is going to be engaged in non-academic or even business review as well as education.

German hotels step up boycotts against online travel agency HRS

Author:  |  Category: Uncategorized

Thursday, March 15, 2012 

A third call for boycott and second boycott hit the German online travel agency Hotel Reservation Service (HRS) this week. After a recent boycott against HRS in Münsterland, a boycott in Bremerhaven was next and is soon to be followed by the next round in Bremerhaven starting in the middle of March.

Hotels in the city of Bremerhaven already have to pay a new “bed tax” to the state of Bremen of 2.14 euro per person per night, whilst HRS is trying to increase their commission payments for its service from thirteen to fifteen percent. Further criticism of HRS focused on a preferential treatment clause that denied hotels the right to offer better prices through any other booking channel. The European umbrella organization of the catering facilities HOTREC had already criticized this type of clause and similar contract clauses in May 2011 in a position paper.

Piet Rothe, hotel owner and second chairman of the German Hotel and Restaurant Association (DEHOGA) Bremerhaven, explained that in his hotels the boycott hat not decreased bookings, merely shifted their volume to other channels such as, for instance,, who would only ask for twelve percent commission.

Rüdiger Magowsky, manager of the boarding house in Jaich, confirmed the observation that the volume of bookings had not decreased. Martin Seiffert, manager of the hotel Haverkamp, explained HRS had denied his hotel access to the system because he participated in the boycott. The access has been restored but he is considering participation in the next round of the boycott anyway.

On February 15 the higher regional court of Düsseldorf had ordered HRS in a preliminary injunction not to enforce its preferential treatment clause. Already on February 10 the German Federal Cartel Office had admonished the company for violating §§ 1 and 20 of the German Act against Restraints of Competition.

Meanwhile Markus Luthe, the CEO of the German International Hotel Association (IHA), recommended establishing a “Hotelwiki” as a yellow pages directory of the hotel industry.

Sorry for English, I hope someone translates this.
Pywikibot (then “Pywikipediabot”) was started back in 2002. In 2007 a new branch (formerly known as “rewrite”, now called “core”) was started from scratch using the MediaWiki API. The developers of Pywikibot have decided to stop supporting the compat version of Pywikibot due to bad performance and architectural errors that make it hard to update, compared to core. If you are using pywikibot compat it is likely your code will break due to upcoming MediaWiki API changes (e.g. T101524). It is highly recommended you migrate to the core framework. There is a migration guide, and please contact us if you have any problem.

There is an upcoming MediaWiki API breaking change that compat will not be updated for. If your bot’s name is in this list, your bot will most likely break.

Thank you,

Did you know?

When you click on a link to an article, you now see more information:

The link tool has been re-designed:

There are separate tabs for linking to internal and external pages. The user guide has more information about how to use VisualEditor.

Since the last newsletter, the Editing Team has created new interfaces for the link and citation tools and fixed many bugs and changed some elements of the design. Some of these bugs affected users of VisualEditor on mobile devices. Status reports are posted on The worklist for April through June is available in Phabricator.

A test of VisualEditor’s effect on new editors at the English Wikipedia has just completed the first phase. During this test, half of newly registered editors had VisualEditor automatically enabled, and half did not. The main goal of the study is to learn which group was more likely to save an edit and to make productive, unreverted edits. Initial results will be posted at Meta later this month.

Auto-fill features for citations are available at a few Wikipedias through the citoid service. Citoid takes a URL or DOI for a reliable source, and returns a pre-filled, pre-formatted bibliographic citation. If Citoid is enabled on your wiki, then the design of the citation workflow changed during May. All citations are now created inside a single tool. Inside that tool, choose the tab you want (<citoid-citeFromIDDialog-mode-auto>, <citoid-citeFromIDDialog-mode-manual>, or <citoid-citeFromIDDialog-mode-reuse>). The cite button is now labeled with the word “Cite” rather than a book icon, and the autofill citation dialog now has a more meaningful label, “<Citoid-citeFromIDDialog-lookup-button>”, for the submit button.

The link tool has been redesigned based on feedback from Wikipedia editors and user testing. It now has two separate sections: one for links to articles and one for external links. When you select a link, its pop-up context menu shows the name of the linked page, a thumbnail image from the linked page, Wikidata’s description, and appropriate icons for disambiguation pages, redirect pages and empty pages (where applicable). Search results have been reduced to the first five pages. Several bugs were fixed, including a dark highlight that appeared over the first match in the link inspector. (T98085)

The special character inserter in VisualEditor now uses the same special character list as the wikitext editor. Admins at each wiki can also create a custom section for frequently used characters at the top of the list. Please read the instructions for customizing the list at Also, there is now a tooltip to describing each character in the special character inserter. (T70425)

Several improvements have been made to templates. When you search for a template to insert, the list of results now contains descriptions of the templates. The parameter list inside the template dialog now remains open after inserting a parameter from the list, so that users don’t need to click on “Add more information” each time they want to add another parameter. (T95696) The team added a new property for TemplateData, “Example”, for template parameters. This optional, translatable property will show up when there is text describing how to use that parameter. (T53049)

The design of the main toolbar and several other elements have changed slightly, to be consistent with the MediaWiki theme. In the Vector skin, individual items in the menu are separated visually by pale gray bars. Buttons and menus on the toolbar can now contain both an icon and a text label, rather than just one or the other. This new design feature is being used for the cite button on wikis where the Citoid service is enabled.

The team has released a long-desired improvement to the handling of non-existent images. If a non-existent image is linked in an article, then it is now visible in VisualEditor and can be selected, edited, replaced, or removed.

Hi everyone.

Over the last few years, the Wikimedia Foundation has been working towards enabling HTTPS by default for all users, including unregistered ones, for better privacy and security for both readers and editors. This has taken a long time, as there were different aspects to take into account. Our servers haven’t been ready to handle it. The Wikimedia Foundation has had to balance sometimes conflicting goals.

Forced HTTPS has just been implemented on all Wikimedia projects. Some of you might already be aware of this, as a few Wikipedia language versions were converted to HTTPS last week and the then affected communities were notified.

Most of Wikimedia editors shouldn’t be affected at all. If you edit as registered user, you’ve probably already had to log in through HTTPS. We’ll keep an eye on this to make sure everything is working as it should. Do get in touch with us if you have any problems after this change or contact me if you have any other questions.

Understanding Math Logic and Correct Reasoning Principles


Dennis McLynn

Math logic is the systematic study of principles of valid inference and correct reasoning. Logic is a form of mathematics that is not only used for mathematical purposes, but is also commonly used in philosophy, semantics and computer science. It examines the common forms of arguments to distinguish between forms that are valid and fallacies. Philosophers use logic to study epistemology, ethics and metaphysics. Mathematicians use logic to study valid inferences within formal language, as well as in the argument theory.

Logic was first established by Aristotle. Aristotle made logic a fundamental part of philosophy by establishing it as one of his disciplines. He made logic part of the classical trivium.

Mathematical logic is divided into the fields of set theory, model theory, recursion theory and proof theory. The set theory studies sets, or collections of objects. It examines the binary relation between a set of objects. The model theory examines mathematical structures using mathematical logic. The mathematical structures examined using the model theory are models for formal languages and the structures that give meaning to the sentences of the formal languages. The model theory itself is very similar to algebra in form and function.

The recursion theory, also known as the computability theory studies computable functions and Turing degrees. The recursion theory addresses reasoning behind functions and natural numbers. This form of math logic is very similar to computer science and is commonly used in a variety of computer science careers.

The proof theory is the study of proofs as formal mathematical objects. Proofs are presented as data structures in the form of plain lists, box lists, or trees. Tree lists are constructed according to the form of axioms and the rules of inference relating back to the logical system. The proof theory, along with the model theory, the axiomatic set theory and the recursion theory, make the four pillars of the foundations of mathematics.

All of the fields of mathematical logic share the basic ideas of first-order logic and definability. First-order logic is a formal logic system to deal with simple declarative propositions, predicates and quantification. It is a deductive system frequently used in philosophy.

Definability functions in mathematical logic as a definable set. The definable set is an n-ary relation on the domain of a structure whose elements are the elements that satisfy a formula in the language of the designated structure. These sets are specific because they are not limited to parameters.

Understanding mathematical logic and correctly recognizing principles allows mathematicians, philosophers, and people serving a variety of careers to deductively reason between valid and false points.

Dominican murder draws light to anti-Haitian sentiment

Author:  |  Category: Uncategorized

Thursday, February 12, 2015 

Yesterday’s discovery of a bound man, believed to be of Haitian ancestry, hanged from a tree in Santiago, Dominican Republic has drawn attention to anti-Hatian sentiments in the nation.

The Dominican Republic and Haiti between them make up the island of Hispaniola and Dominicans have grown concerned by Haitian immigration in recent years. Police say they believe the man, known to his friends as Tulile, was murdered during a robbery. Police officers anonymously told reporters a winning lottery ticket may have been the motive.

Aged around 23, Tulile made his living shining shoes and taking commissions from money lending in the area he was murdered. Bound hand and foot, his body was found at dawn in Ercilia Pepín park, Sabana Larga street. The scene is close to the University Hospital Jose Maria Cabral y Báe, around which Tulile worked.

This week saw the public burning of Haiti’s flag in Santiago by local residents, saying it symbolised their rejection of Haitian immigration. The issue is a hot topic, with a court ruling two years ago retrospectively stripping Dominicans born to unregistered Haitian parents from 1930 onwards of their citizenship.

Only 7,000 of an estimated 200,000 eligible residents have signed up for residency cards, a scheme instigated by the government in the face of international pressure. The deadline to apply for the permits, which allow citizenship after two years, has passed.

“They shouldn’t have to apply for residency,” said Santiago Canton of the Robert F Kennedy Center for Human Rights in a Guardian interview. “They are Dominicans.” Canton said the murder should be viewed “in the context of constant discrimination and violence against Haitians”.

Wikinews:Custom skin

Author:  |  Category: Uncategorized

I’ve been working on coding a brand new skin specifically for Wikinews. This is not a modification of any existing skin, but a new skin built from scratch. It is inspired by viceroy321’s mockup in the Wikinews skin design contest. As of Mar. 25th, the skin is complete, including commented, very customizable CSS. I am still working on some tweaks, but the bulk of the skin is done.

I’ve included several images here (Most likely outdated).

Wikinews is a news site, and MonoBook just doesn’t fit a news theme. The idea behind this skin is to give Wikinews a more “newsy” layout while preserving the usability of a Wiki. To that extent, I believe I’ve succeeded.

As of this writing, functionality is total and equivalent to MonoBook, save a few exceptions:

Full (100%)

These screenshots are current as of April 17th:

Here is the old version of the skin as per request for comparison purposes.

Comments are appreciated, post them here:
