Donald Trump in his own words after meeting with the G7 in

first_imgLA MALBAIE, Que. – Donald Trump held a free-flowing news conference as he departed the G7 summit on Saturday. It was his first visit to Canada as president of the United States, and he stayed about 24 hours. Here are some highlights from his comments:On Canada and the summit: “It has worked out to be so wonderful. The people of Canada are wonderful, and it’s a great country, and a very beautiful country.”On the state of global trade: “From the standpoint of trade and jobs and being fair to companies, we are really, I think, committed. I think they are starting to be committed to a much more fair trade situation for the United States, because it has been treated very, very unfairly….And I don’t blame other leaders for that. I blame our past leaders. There was no reason that this should have happened.”On the North Korea summit: “I’ll be on a mission of peace, and we will carry in, really — in my heart, we’re going to be carrying the hearts of millions of people, people from all over the world. We have to get denuclearization. We have to get something going. We really think that North Korea will be a tremendous place in a very short period of time. And we appreciate everything that’s going on. We appreciate the working together with North Korea. They’re really working very well with us.”On bringing Russia back into the G7: “I think it would be an asset to have Russia back in. I think it would be good for the world. I think it would be good for Russia. I think it would be good for the United States. I think it would be good for all of the countries of the current G7.”On the ultimate goal for global trade rules: “You want a tariff-free, you want no barriers, and you want no subsidies, because you have some cases where countries are subsidizing industries, and that’s not fair. So you go tariff-free, you go barrier-free, you go subsidy-free. ….“It’s got to change. It’s going to change. I mean, it’s not a question of ‘I hope it changes.’ It’s going to change, a hundred per cent. And tariffs are going to come way down, because people cannot continue to do that. We’re like the piggy bank that everybody is robbing. And that ends.”On renegotiating NAFTA: “So two things can happen on NAFTA. We’ll either leave it the way it is, as a threesome deal with Canada and with the United States and Mexico, and change it very substantially — we’re talking about very big changes. Or we’re going to make a deal directly with Canada and directly with Mexico. Both of those things could happen.”On rating G7 friendships: “I would say that the level of relationship is a 10. We have a great relationship. Angela and Emmanuel and Justin. I would say the relationship is a 10.”last_img read more

New Mexico Official Demands 25M from Air Force following Dispute over Wind

first_imgNew Mexico Land Commissioner Aubrey Dunn is asking the Air Force to pay the state $25 million to compensate it for the loss of lease revenue from a wind farm project in central New Mexico after DOD said over half of the planned turbines would interfere with the Air Force’s use of a military training route. In a letter sent Tuesday to Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson, Dunn emphasized that money generated from state trust lands support New Mexico’s schools and hospitals, reports the Albuquerque Journal. “I believe that the military should not be uniquely and unduly burdening state trust lands by effectively prohibiting the investment-backed activities of state trust land leases unless it is willing to pay appropriate compensation,” wrote Dunn, who is running for the U.S. Senate this year.An Air Force spokeswoman said the service tries to not to restrict the activities of private industry. “Our primary focus is the Air Force mission,” said Ann Stefanik. “When possible, we work with industry and government partners to allow for development that makes sense for all parties.” A spokesman for wind developer Avangrid Renewables said the company would continue discussions with DOD. “We are going to continue to work with the DOD clearinghouse to help balance the protection of national security with responsible and reasonable siting of our turbines to benefit all parties,” said Paul Copleman.The dispute echoes one three years ago between the Pentagon and SunZia over its plans to build an extra-high-voltage transmission line through parts of White Sands Missile Range in southern New Mexico.Photo by Michael Zamora Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Family that Hosted Ebola Patient Confined to Home

first_imgThis 2011 photo provided by Wilmot Chayee shows Thomas Eric Duncan at a wedding in Ghana. Duncan, who became the first patient diagnosed in the U.S with Ebola, has been kept in isolation at a hospital since Sunday, Sept. 28, 2014. He was listed in serious but stable condition. (AP Photo/Wilmot Chayee)DALLAS (AP) — Four members of a family the U.S. Ebola patient was staying with were confined to their Texas home under armed guard Thursday as the circle of people possibly exposed to the virus widened, while Liberian authorities said they would prosecute the man for allegedly lying on an airport questionnaire.The unusual confinement order was imposed after the family failed to comply with a request not to leave their apartment, according to Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.Texas State Health Commissioner David Lakey said the order would help ensure the four can be closely watched, including checking them for fevers over the next three weeks.“We didn’t have the confidence we would have been able to monitor them the way that we needed to,” he said.The family will not be allowed to receive visitors, officials said.The case has raised questions about whether a disease that has killed 3,300 people in West Africa could spread in the United States. U.S. health officials say they remain confident they can keep it in check.A woman who lives in the apartment, Louise Troh, said she has been quarantined with her 13-year-old son and two nephews.“Who wants to be locked up?” she said in an interview with The Associated Press.he Ivy Apartment complex is guarded by Vickery Meadow patrol, Thursday, Oct. 2, 2014, in Dallas. The complex is where Thomas Eric Duncan, the Ebola patient who traveled from Liberia to Dallas last week, was staying. (AP Photo/The Dallas Morning News, Nathan Hunsinger)Troh said she was waiting for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to collect a bag of the bed sheets and towels Thomas Eric Duncan used.A hazardous material crew arrived to decontaminate the apartment Thursday evening but did not have the required permits to clean the home and remove hazardous waste, city spokesman Richard Hill said. He said the crew, contracted by the county and state, will return to complete the job on Friday.The family must also be relocated before the cleanup can begin, Hill said. He had no information on where the family will go.Visitors from the American Red Cross were seen Thursday bringing food to the apartment door. The North Texas Food Bank said it sent three days of cereal, tuna, produce and other supplies.Outside, the management of the 300-unit complex in northeast Dallas was passing out flyers about Ebola to residents. Private security guards and local sheriff’s deputies blocked off the entrance to dozens of reporters.Apartment manager Sally Nuran said employees were power-washing sidewalks and scrubbing common areas, though she believed Duncan had not visited most of the complex in his short time there.Elsewhere, Texas health officials expanded their efforts to contain the virus, reaching out to as many as 100 people who may have had direct contact with Duncan or someone close to him.None of the people is showing symptoms, but public-health officials have educated them about Ebola and told them to notify medical workers if they begin to feel ill, Erikka Neroes, a spokeswoman for the Dallas County Health and Human Services agency, said.The at-risk group includes 12 to 18 people who came in direct contact with the infected man, including an ambulance crew and a handful of schoolchildren, she said.“This is a big spider web” of people involved, Neroes said.The virus that causes Ebola is not airborne and can only be spread through close contact with someone who has symptoms. People must come into direct contact with the patient’s bodily fluids — blood, sweat, vomit, feces, urine, saliva or semen — and those fluids must have an entry point.Ebola dried on surfaces can survive for several hours, according to the CDC.For example, people might get infected by handling soiled clothing or bed sheets and then touching their nose, mouth or eyes, or if they are not wearing gloves while doing those tasks and have a cut on their hand.“If you sit next to someone on the bus, you’re not exposed,” CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden said.Neighbors in the Liberian capital believe Duncan become infected when he helped bundle a sick pregnant neighbor into a taxi a few weeks ago and set off with her to find treatment. However, it was not clear whether he had learned of the woman’s diagnosis before traveling.Nonetheless, Liberian authorities announced plans to prosecute Duncan, accusing him of lying about not having any contact with an infected person.Duncan answered questions about his health and activities before leaving for Dallas. Among the questions asked on the Sept. 19 form, obtained by The Associated Press, one asked whether Duncan had cared for an Ebola patient or touched the body of anyone who had died in an area affected by Ebola. He answered no to all the questions.“We expect people to do the honorable thing,” said Binyah Kesselly, chairman of the board of directors of the Liberia Airport Authority in Monrovia.Duncan arrived in Dallas on Sept. 20 and fell ill a few days later. His sister, Mai Wureh, identified him as the infected man in an interview with The Associated Press.A Dallas emergency room sent Duncan home last week, even though he told a nurse that he had been in disease-ravaged West Africa, and raising questions as to whether the decision to release him may have put others at risk of exposure to Ebola.In a statement emailed late Thursday, the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital said that it followed communicable disease protocols by also asking Duncan if he had come into contact with anyone who was ill, to which he replied he had not. At that point his symptoms were a temperature of 100.1F, two days of abdominal pain, a headache and decreased urination, the hospital said. He said he had no nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, and based on that information, the hospital decided to release him.He returned to the facility two days layer and has been kept in isolation at the hospital since Sunday. He was listed Thursday in serious but stable condition.Liberia is one of the three countries hit hardest in the epidemic, along with Sierra Leone and Guinea.___Associated Press writers Krista Larson and Jonathan Paye-Layleh in Monrovia, Liberia; Paul J. Weber in Dallas; Emily Schmall in Fort Worth; and Lauran Neergaard in Washington contributed to this report.last_img read more

Netflix open sources Zuul 2 cloud gateway

first_imgNetflix in their tech blog announced that their popular cloud gateway Zuul 2 is now open-source. Zuul 2 was announced back in 2016 is Netflix’s Java-based API gateway that handles all the request for Netflix’s user base. Zuul 2 is the front door, acting as a filter to any request that comes into the Netflix’s server. This gateway monitors the request and routes the request to the appropriate service to then act on the request. Zuul, in a way, is responsible for keeping Netflix standing strong and fulfilling your streaming requests. Netflix is known for open sourcing a lot of the tools developed in-house for the community. Zuul 2 is a battle-tested tool as it has been handling the massive Netflix infrastructure. Since its open sourcing, the developers have an option of a more resilient tool that can be used in their infrastructure architecture. Netflix promises to keep the security aspect intact for the open source Zuul 2. Also to add to this news, Netflix announced some more features for Zuul 2. Here are the feature additions: Server protocols: Zuul 2 has full support for HTTP/2 connections. Also, Mutual TLS will enhance Zuul’s operation in secure infrastructure. Resiliency features: To increase the availability, Netflix will be adding a feature called Adaptive Retries that is used on Netflix. Also, it would be adding configurable concurrency limits for protecting the origins from getting overloaded and separating the other origins that run behind Zuul. Request Passport: This feature will enable the Zuul server to track all events that occur for each request. This will allow you to compute the asynchronous requests for better availability of your services. Status Categories: This feature helps you categorize the requests by extending the success and failure state in terms of HTTP status code. Request attempts: It tracks all the proxy attempts and provides you the status of each attempt. This really helps to identify the retries and to debug the routing. Zuul also has enhanced self-service routing, load balancing, anomaly detection, among other primary features that Netflix uses to keep the infrastructure secure and running. Netflix has released several other tools including Titus (container management), Conductor (microservice orchestration), Hystrix (cloud management), Vizceral (traffic management), among other efficient tools that can be used in large infrastructures.
