SELECTMEN NEWS Committee Created To Propose Changes To Annual Town Meeting

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Changes may be on the way for Annual Town Meeting, but not anytime in the immediate future.At Monday’s meeting, Selectman Mike McCoy asked his colleagues to put an article on this year’s Town Meeting warrant asking voters to change the dates of the Annual Town Election and Annual Town Meeting. McCoy noted the recent Bylaw Review Committee, which he served on, was supportive of changing the date of Annual Town Meeting.Under McCoy’s proposal, the Town Election would fall on the third Saturday of March and the Town Meeting would fall on the fourth Saturday of March. McCoy felt turnout would increase with less conflicts predicted in late March as compared to early May, when First Communions, spring youth sports, and yard work are all in full swing.While his colleagues didn’t necessarily dismiss the idea, they opted not to support it. Instead, Selectmen unanimously agreed to form a Town Meeting Review Committee on the suggestion of Town Moderator Robert Peterson, Jr.“I have no opposition to moving Town Meeting… but I ask the board when moving the date, that you consider taking a holistic approach to the issue of Town Meeting,” Peterson told the board. “I do strongly suggest the Town consider doing some sort of Town Meeting Review Committee…. There are things we can look at to speed the process along, whether it be consent agendas or electronic voting…”“I think Mr. Peterson’s idea is a great idea,” responded Selectman Jonathan Eaton. “I’d rather a solution come from the community than this board. I don’t want to make a change now and then have to change it again next year. My preference is to start a committee as soon as possible and solicit feedback. There’s a lot of good in the survey we’ve conducted, but we have a lot of questions that we need to do some more digging on.”“I agree. Let’s have a review committee. But let’s add a caveat that they need to have something decided in time so we can put something on warrant for next year’s meeting. Let’s get it going now so it’s ready for next year’s warrant,” agreed Selectman Ed Loud.“I’d be inclined to develop a subcommittee and for them to come back and give us a report on which way to go,” concurred Selectman Kevin Caira.The makeup of the Committee is yet to be fleshed out, but it sounded like each Selectman will appoint three members to a 15-member committee.All Selectman also seemed unanimous in their desire to keep the Town Meeting on Saturday, as opposed to moving it to a weeknight or multiple weeknights.“I’m concerned about seniors, some of which are less likely to drive at night,” pointed out Selectman Greg Bendel, who was also cool to the idea of a March Town Meeting. “I worry about a March Meeting. We had 5-6 snow days at school last March. We’d still be running into winter weather. What would happen if Town Meeting were to get snowed out, which unfortunately is a possibility in New England in March.”“This is an impossible problem to try to solve. 23,000 people live in Wilmington,” added Selectman Eaton. “There’s always going to be a conflict… A lot of the themes I saw [in the town meeting survey] was that weeknights weren’t good for seniors, but weekends were tough for parents.”Town Manager Jeff Hull cautioned that moving the Town Meeting too early in the year would create issues for the town’s budget process.“The Governor doesn’t present his budget [which includes state aid, the town’s second largest revenue source] until the end of January. If we have a Town Meeting at the end of March, I have to present the budget to the Board of Selectmen at the end of December, well before the Governor’s,” explained Hull. “It just creates a greater level of uncertainty when putting the budget together.”“Clearly we had some past Town Meetings – like the new high school vote – where a significant amount of people showed up. To some measure, [attendance] is a function of what the topics are at the Town Meeting,” Hull later added. “When people really want to turn out – hockey rink, new High School, new Middle School — people turn out when there are issues that they want to be heard on. I’m not sure that any particular date is going to solicit a groundswell of interest.”Any date change would need Town Meeting approval and then require an act of the State Legislature.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Optional headlights deliver IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus to 2019 BMW X5

first_imgBMW now has four vehicles that have captured an award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in 2019.The 2019 BMW X5 has earned the IIHS’ best award, Top Safety Pick Plus, the safety organization announced Thursday. In order to achieve this award, a vehicle has to beat a battery of crash tests with flying colors, in addition to scoring well on evaluations of its headlight and crash-avoidance systems. There’s a lot of moving parts to the equation, and the IIHS occasionally adds new tests to keep automakers in a state of constant improvement.This year’s new test is the passenger-side small-overlap crash test, and BMW took to it like a fish to water, earning the top rating of Good. It also achieved the same rating in every other crash test, whether it was roof strength, side collisions or the small-overlap test on the driver side.

It achieved a top rating of Superior for its crash-prevention tech, which is standard on all trims, and more advanced options earned the same rating. Things were a bit different for the headlight evaluation, though. While the optional Laser Light LED headlights earned a Good rating, the standard LED headlights lacked sufficient high-beam illumination to the side, and the low beams created too much glare, resulting in a Poor rating, the lowest the IIHS gives out.But thanks to its Laser Light headlights, the all-new X5 earned itself a Top Safety Pick Plus commendation. It’s the third TSP Plus for BMW this year, following the 5 Series and X3. The smaller X2 did well, but not as well, picking up the second-best Top Safety Pick award. 2019 BMW X5 looks good without looking too differentcenter_img 2019 Maserati Levante GTS: Heart of gold 55 Photos BMW Post a comment BMW Tags Review • 2019 BMW X5 review: The O.G. dog gets new tricks More From Roadshowlast_img read more

Android tablets are still a thing and Samsungs Galaxy Tab S6 is

first_img Originally published July 31. Update, Aug. 7: Adds clarification on Samsung tablet shipments for Q1 2019. 69 Photos 2:53 Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 could be the fanciest Android tablet The Tab S6 targets mobile workers who also game. Sarah Tew/CNET The Galaxy Tab S6 is Samsung’s Android-based answer to the iPad Pro and Surface Pro (and the discontinued — but not discounted — Pixel Slate). As a premium tablet, the S6 has all the stuff you’d expect: A powerful new processor, a great 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display and quad speakers as well as a new pen and keyboard cover. But it’s all the little extras Samsung packs in that make it more than just another Android tablet. The tablet market in general is in decline but Samsung’s tablet shipments — Android and Windows — remain strong, coming in just behind Apple’s iPad shipments for Q1 2019, according to analyst group IDC. At least part of the slide is attributed to a lack of innovative features within the category, which is something the Tab S6 attempts to attack. The included updated S Pen stylus, for example, can be used as a wireless shutter release for capturing photos and video with the tablet’s dual rear cameras — a first for a Samsung tablet. The pen magnetically snaps strongly to the rear of the tablet for storage and to wirelessly charge it. Samsung says a 10-minute charge will get you through a day of use. 71-samsung-galaxy-tab-s6The tablet cover also acts like a pen case. Sarah Tew/CNET A Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor gives the Tab S6 more than an 80% CPU boost and more than a 60% graphics boost over the Tab S4. The increased performance is better for day-to-day stuff, but you’ll also see the benefits when using DeX, Samsung’s desktop interface for Android, which makes it feel more like a PC.DeX goes hand in hand with the Tab S6’s new Book Cover Keyboard. A huge improvement over the S4’s keyboard cover, the new version adds a touchpad (DeX has mouse support), a row of function keys and a quick-launch button for DeX. It also has a free-angle kickstand so it can be used in more than one position. Along with working more comfortably, you can work longer. Samsung claims up to 15 hours of battery life and it’ll quick-charge through its USB-C port. 77-samsung-galaxy-tab-s6The Book Cover’s kickstand lets you work at more than one angle. Sarah Tew/CNET Gaming on the Tab S6 with the Snapdragon 855 is also improved from the S4. A Game Booster with AI capabilities lets you optimize for smoother performance or better image quality on 16:10 2,560×1,600-pixel resolution display. Samsung also has an exclusive partnership with game chat platform Discord so you can live chat through the tablet’s Game Launcher app. There are a handful of other things, too, like the quad speakers tuned by AKG and Dolby Atmos and an on-screen fingerprint scanner for quick sign ins. Plus you can wake the table with two taps on the screen. About the only thing missing is a headphone jack. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 comes in gray, blue and blush. It’ll be available for preorder online at Samsung.com on Aug. 23 and available in stores and online on Sept. 6. The base Wi-Fi-only model has 128GB of storage (microSD expansion available) and 6GB of RAM for $650 or, for $730, you can get 8GB of memory and 256GB of storage. The S Pen is included with both, but not the keyboard cover, which costs $180. An LTE version is expected later this year. 0 Tags Share your voice Now playing: Watch this: Post a comment Computers Tablets Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Samsunglast_img read more

74 JOF candidates file petitions with HC seeking fresh polls

first_imgJatiya Oikya Front. File PhotoSeventy-four 74 Jatiya Oikya Front candidates have filed election petitions with the High Court seeking its directives to hold a fresh election after cancelling the results of the 30 December polls, citing vote-rigging, vote robbery, casting fake votes and driving agents out of polling stations.They filed the petitions in three days from Tuesday, reports UNB.On Saturday, the candidates decided to file district-wise election petitions with the High Court against irregularities in the election.Eight Supreme Court lawyers were assigned on Sunday to conduct the cases.One of the lawyers, Ruhul Quddus Kazal said he filed petitions on behalf of 12 candidates.It was mentioned in the petitions that even dead persons cast their votes in the general election, he said. “Fake votes were cast and in some centres, 97-98 per cent votes were cast.”Bringing allegations of other anomalies, the petitions said it was not an election at all and demanded cancelling the election results.Kazal said the petitions will be placed before the HC bench concerned next week for hearing.last_img read more

N Korea still serious and imminent threat Japan

first_imgIn this file photo taken on 29 August, 2017, soldiers from the Japan Air Self-Defence Force set up PAC-3 surface-to-air missile launch systems during a temporary deployment drill at US Yokota Air Bace in Tokyo. Photo: AFPNorth Korea still poses a “serious and imminent threat”, Japan said Tuesday in its first annual defence review since an outbreak of diplomacy on the Korean peninsula.Japan’s 2018 defence white paper also took aim at China’s rise as a military power, saying Beijing was sparking “strong security concerns in the region and international community, including Japan”.Last year’s defence review was published at the height of the tensions with North Korea, amid nuclear and missile tests and US president Donald Trump threatening to rain down “fire and fury” on Pyongyang if it kept up its threats.But since then, a spectacular diplomatic detente has taken place, culminating in the historic summit between Trump and the North’s leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on 12 June.Nevertheless, Tokyo insisted on Tuesday: “There is no change in our basic recognition concerning the threat of North Korea’s nuclear weapons and missiles.”Pyongyang continues to post “an unprecedentedly serious and imminent threat to Japan’s security and significantly damage the peace and security of the region and the international community”, according to Tokyo.Japanese defence minister Itsunori Onodera acknowledged in the document that North Korea had begun “dialogue” with former foes the US and South Korea.“But we cannot overlook the fact that, even to this day, it possesses and fully deploys several hundred missiles that put nearly all of Japan within range,” stressed the minister.In response, Japan is steadily upgrading its capacity to shield the nation from the North’s arsenal, including a plan to spend some $4.2 billion over the next three decades on installing and operating US radar systems.Despite the historic handshake in Singapore, there has been little progress in denuclearising the Korean peninsula and Washington-Pyongyang relations appear to have taken a turn for the worse, with Trump abruptly scrapping a planned visit to the North by secretary of state Mike Pompeo.The white paper also reiterated its worries about China’s increasing military spending and expanding naval ambitions.It complained that Beijing was trying to “change the status quo by coercion”, referring to such actions as building up disputed islands in the South China Sea and expanding naval activities around East China Sea islands in dispute with Japan.last_img read more

Scientists make holograms of atoms using electrons

first_img The scientists, Ymkje Huismans from the FOM-Institute AMOLF in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and an international research team have published their study in a recent issue of Science Express.“What we have experimentally demonstrated is that it is possible to make holograms by taking an electron out of a molecule and, using a laser field, redirect the electron toward the molecule,” coauthor Marc Vrakking, of the FOM-Institute AMOLF and the Max Born Institute in Berlin, told PhysOrg.com.In their experiments, the scientists beamed an intense infrared laser light at an atom or molecule, which resulted in the atom or molecule becoming ionized and releasing an electron. The laser field causes the liberated electron to oscillate away from and toward the ion. Sometimes, an electron and ion collide, releasing a very short burst of radiation. Because the electron motion is fully coherent, meaning it always has the same phase, the scientists realized that they could apply holographic techniques to record information about the ion and electron. The key to holographic electron imaging is to observe the interference between a reference wave (which is emitted by the electron and doesn’t interact with the ion) and a signal wave (which scatters off the ion and encodes its structure). When the reference wave and signal wave interfere on a detector, the encoded information about the electron and ion is stored and can be viewed in the future. As the scientists explained, the result is a hologram of an atom produced by its own electrons.The researchers also developed theoretical models to simulate their measurements, confirming that the hologram had stored spatial and temporal information about the electrons and ions. By using the holographic structures to develop a new kind of ultra-fast photoelectron spectroscopy, researchers could be able to directly measure electron and ion movements on the attosecond timescale. This ability would be useful for understanding chemical reactions at the most basic level, particularly in molecules that cannot be easily studied by other methods. Scientists track electrons in molecules (PhysOrg.com) — While holography is often associated with artistic 3D images, it can also be used for many other purposes. In a new study, scientists have created holograms of atoms using laser-driven electron motion, which could lead to a new type of ultra-fast photoelectron spectroscopy. In the future, this type of holography could enable scientists to study the structures of molecules in a more direct way than before. This velocity map image shows the velocity distribution of ionized electrons, which are used to create a hologram of a Xenon atom. Image credit: Y. Huismans, et al. ©2010 Science.

Genderbased colours in toys can spur harmful stereotypes

first_imgToymakers should avoid gender- labelling toys, and create items for both boys and girls in a wide range of colours, say scientists who found that children’s perception of what is appropriate for a gender can be easily manipulated. The study is also the first to show that a boy’s liking of blue and a girl’s preference for pink is not just a Western construct, but is also a phenomenon in urban Asian societies.The researchers from University of Hong Kong recruited 129 Chinese children aged between five and seven from two kindergartens in Hong Kong. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfFirst they assessed the children’s preference for pink versus blue by showing them cards and toys in these colours.Then the children were presented with yellow and green cards and toys.They were randomly divided into so-called label and no-label groups.Children in the no-label group were presented with coloured cards and toys which had no reference to a specific gender and these children consequently expressed no preference for a specific colour.However, preschoolers in the label group were told that yellow was a girl’s colour and green a boys’ colour, and corresponding gender differences emerged in the choices they made. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive Apart from randomly assigning children to these two groups, the children’s pre-existing preferences for yellow and green were statistically controlled, so the resulting difference between the groups speaks strongly to a causal effect of the gender labels.According to the researchers, the gender differences between preferred colours in children is noteworthy because it is so much more prominent than most other psychological differences between the sexes. “Our findings support the notion that gender-typed liking for pink versus blue is a particularly salient gender difference,” said Sui Ping Yeung from University of Hong Kong.”Moreover, our findings reveal that gender differences could be created merely by applying gender labels,” Yeung said.The findings, published in the journal Sex Role support previous research that highlighted the strong influence that gender labels such as “for boys” or “for girls” might have. Further, the observations are in line with gender schema theory that says that once children have learnt a specific gender identity, their behaviour will be guided by the standards set as being appropriate for their specific sex.These will guide them later in life on how they interact and adapt to their surroundings, for instance, when taking on chores around the house, such as cooking, cleaning or repairing things.last_img read more
