Queen Elizabeth Ii News: Desperate Harry &Amp; Meghan ‘Know Time In Limelight Limited’ As Cambridge Kids ‘Take Centre Stage’

MEGHAN & Harry know their time is up as William’s future heir takes centre stage as a “new interesting character”, an expert has claimed.

During the Queen’s Jubilee, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children Louis, Charlotte & George stole the show, with four-year-old Royal providing star-quality entertainment standing next to The Queen 

Now, Royal expert Jonathan Sacerdoti has suggested Harry & Meghan may be seeking to get as much attention and earnings, as they knew their time was possibly limited.

He told the Royally Us podcast: “There’s an interesting thing Prince Harry said ages ago that he kind of knew that he had a certain amount of time in the limelight, his 15 minutes.

“And eventually Prince Louis, Prince George, Princess Charlotte would become the new, interesting characters.”

Speaking of Harry’s potential overshadowing by the future king, Sacredoti continued: “There’ll somebody else who may be as rudderless, directionless because of their position in the succession is such that they’re limited to what they can do in life but they don’t have an obvious constitutional role going forward and in the Royal Family so maybe they’ll go off the rails.”

  • Her Majesty offers Harry & Meghan an ‘olive branch’

    The Queen has reportedly invited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to Balmoral this summer, in an attempt to mend relations.

    The offer would seemingly allow the pair to avoid senior royals.

    Her Maj, 96, arrived in the Highlands on Thursday and is set to stay for ten weeks at seven-bed Craigowan Lodge.

    A Balmoral insider said: “Staff have been told to expect the full list of royals including Harry, Meghan and their children Archie and Lilibet.

    Angela Levin, royal biographer, said: “More proof that Harry and Meghan want to run a woke alternative royal family that would wipe out the one we have already.

    “Time to lose their titles and for Harry: his Counsellor of State post.”

    She went on to comment: “Of course with Meghan also as president in the USA.”

    The Duke of Sussex is suing his own grandmother the Queen’s government after it refused to spend taxpayers’ money on his bodyguards when he quit the Royal Family.

    A High Court judge will now look again at the decision to turn down his demands after Megxit.

    But in a blow to his case, a judge threw out some of Harry’s reasons for reopening the matter – which could weaken his argument. 

    The judge rejected arguments which Harry put forward to say he should have been told who members of Ravec were and that he did not have the opportunity to comment on the “appropriateness” of Ravec’s process and certain individuals involved.

    He also dismissed Harry’s suggestions that it was unlawful for Ravec not to provide security to any Royal who must ask the Queen’s permission to marry.

    Mr Justice Swift instead agreed with the Home Office that the duke’s claim about who specifically should be protected is irrelevant.

  • Prince Harry ‘proved wrong’ about the royal family (1/2)

    One of Prince Harry’s dazzling claims to Oprah has been proved wrong, claims a royal expert.

    The Duke of Sussex told Oprah he felt “trapped within the system, like the rest of the family are.”

    In 2021, he told Dax Shepard’s podcast his upbringing brought “pain and suffering” and that it was a mix of “between The Truman show and being in a zoo.”

    Royal commentator, Daniela Elser, offered a different view, writing for News.com.au, saying the most recent photo of Prince George proved Harry wrong.

    She said: “What Harry has not ever distinguished between is how much of his unhappy younger years can be blamed on the institution and how much was actually down to the two messed up individuals who actually raised him?

    “What this new George shot does is really drive home that the version of the royal family that Harry has repeatedly talked about, one that was inherently dysfunctional and in which his emotional and psychological needs were never, ever met is… gone.”

  • Eugenie and Beatrice after being snubbed by Prince William

    A royal expert has claimed the York sisters have struggled to keep the peace with senior members of the royal family.

    YouTube’s royal commentator, Neil Sean, revealed that the royal rift has extended further into the family.

    He claimed that they could be shut out when Charles eventually becomes King.

    Neil said: “There is a big story breaking in the royal family, that has remained under the radar largely. And it’d to do with Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge and William’s father Prince Charles.”

    He went on to say insiders had revealed to him that the sisters were struggling to remain “cordial” with their relatives.

    This is due to the deal made with the Queen that removed Prince Andrew from public duties.

    “According to that good source, it appears that William, Catherine and Charles are on the naughty step with the princesses.

    “Moving forward that could be very tricky indeed because they have retained very close relations with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.”

Irctc shares rise over 4% after digital asset monetization news

Irctc Shares Rise Over 4% After Digital Asset Monetization News

By CNBCTV18.com August 19, 2022, 12:55 p.m. STI (Update)

mini

These digital assets mentioned in the RFP include rail ticketing data, user base, and transactions related to passenger journeys. IRCTC aims to generate additional revenue by monetizing its digital assets.

Shares of Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) soared more than 4% after the company issued a tender to hire a consultant to monetize digital assets on August 18.

As of 12:46 p.m., IRCTC shares were trading at Rs 748, up 4.8% from the previous close on BSE.

These digital assets mentioned in the RFP include rail ticketing data, user base, and transactions related to passenger journeys. IRCTC aims to generate additional revenue by monetizing its digital assets.

The shares also went commercial ex-dividend yesterday, August 18, after the PSU of Indian Railways set August 19, 2022 as the record date to finalize eligible shareholders for payment of the final dividend of the financial year 2022.

“The Company has set Friday, August 19, 2022 as the ‘record date’ for determining members’ entitlement to the final dividend for the year ending March 31, 2022, if approved at the AGM,” said IRCTC in a regulatory filing.

Shares of IRCTC were trading at Rs 675.8, up 0.85% from the previous close on BSE. The stock has gained over the past three days and is up 1.43% over the period.

For the financial year 2021-2022, the IRCTC Board has already approved a final dividend of Rs 1.50 per share. The interim dividend of Rs 2 per share, announced in February 2022, is in addition to the final dividend of Rs 1.5 per share. The dividend is subject to the approval of the Annual General Meeting (AGM).

With this, the IRCTC also launched a tender to monetize rail ticketing data. Passenger data must be provided by the IRCTC, which could boost profits, as CNBC Awaaz reported.

What is an ex-dividend?

Ex-dividend refers to a stock that trades without the value of the next dividend payment. A stock is ex-dividend if it trades on or after the ex-dividend date. If you buy a stock after it has become ex-dividend, you will own the stock, but you will not get the next dividend payment for that stock. Instead, the payment will go to the person who sold you the stock.

For example, if a company with a share of Rs 335 rupees declares a dividend of Rs 5, on the ex-dividend date, the share price may fall to Rs 330, as the company no longer has those Rs 5 Typically, the ex-dividend date for a stock is one business day prior to the record date.

Ticketing activity collapses

The ticketing arm of Indian Railways saw an 820 basis point drop in its quarterly margin compared to the corresponding period a year ago. The IRCTC reported a net profit of Rs 248.5 crore for the quarter ended June 2022, almost three times higher than a year ago.

The revenue share of its internet ticketing unit fell to 35.4% for the April-June period, from 42.3% in the previous three months.

Why can’t I ever see the Northern Lights from where I live?

Why Can'T I Ever See The Northern Lights From Where I Live?

You know the drill: buzzing articles claim that the Northern Lights, the dazzling phenomenon known scientifically as the Northern Lights, could be seen in areas that don’t normally see them. People who grew up with pictures of spectacular views like these start daydreaming, maybe set an alarm for a late night out, maybe drive outside their city limits to try and avoid light pollution.

The latest news from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration sounds so positive. A geomagnetic storm is expected to peak Thursday at what is called a G3 level. Good but not great for aurora viewing — G5 is the highest. While the Northern Lights are usually only seen in very northern locations, there’s hope this storm could push them further south, and even states like Oregon or Pennsylvania could get a glimpse.

Noaa-Graph

Oh NOAA, why do you keep breaking our hearts with the hope that we’ll see a dawn?

NOAA

But so often as i wrote in 2020 when there were high hopes for aurora sightings, the forecast changes, the aurora borealis becomes timid and people are disappointed. Is this all a space scam?

Bill Murtagh, program coordinator at NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center, is well aware that many of us would-be aurora watchers are disappointed time and time again.

It seems suspicious to me

Murtagh compared it to a conversation he had recently with someone who fishes for marlin, saying he asked them how many hours they’ve been out on the water hoping for their big catch, compared to the number of times they really succeed.

“(Fishing) is like (looking for) an aurora,” Murtagh told me. “You could be looking for him for hours, then the perfect storm of events happens and you finally see him.”

City disadvantage

If you live in a city — Murtagh was telling me about Boulder, Colorado, while I’m in Seattle — you’re already at a disadvantage.

“I’ve had people say, ‘I went looking for (the aurora) and I didn’t see anything! ‘” Murtagh told me. “And I say, ‘Well, where were you?’ And they say, ‘Downtown Denver.’ Ah, well, there’s this thing called light pollution…”

Light pollution is pretty much exactly what it sounds like, the brightening of the night sky in the city, caused by streetlights and other sources. This inhibits our ability to see stars and planets.

Cloud cover can be a problem

But let’s say you get in the car and drive from your city or suburb to a rural area with no street lights. There is one element beyond your control: the weather.

“If you got some kind of Washington state [weather pattern]good luck,” Murtagh said with a laugh, referring to my state’s famous cloudiness. And clouds can hover over any state at any time, making aurora sightings even harder to predict.

Do you still want to try?

And when, exactly, should you venture out to see the Northern Lights? Wouldn’t it be nice if we could have a prime block of time when the aurora is most likely to appear? Murtagh said that was unrealistic. You want it to be dark, but that’s about as accurate as predictions can get.

“There really is no specific time [that’s best]”, he told me. “Don’t let anyone tell you, ‘This time or that time is when you’ll see it.’”

aurora tourism

If seeing the aurora is on your bucket list and you have a bucket full of travel money, consider a trip to Alaska or northern Canada, or even northern Europe.

“Anchorage, Fairbanks, Yukon, Helsinki, northern Scandinavia, those are the places where you have a good chance of seeing (aurora),” Murtagh said.

There are even now tour operators arranging tours in hopes of seeing the Northern Lights.

“Aurora tourism is big business now,” Murtagh says.

Is it worth it?

So since seeing an aurora remains difficult, why do so many of us yearn to see them? Take another look at some of these wonderful photos and you might remember them.

“They are so majestic,” Murtagh said. “Seeing the sky swirl in shades of green and yellow, sometimes red and purple. It’s scary to see it sometimes. Anyone lucky enough to see it in all its glory knows that.”

don’t lose faith

Murtagh offered me and other townspeople some hope. If we had talked about the aurora hunt every month from 2018 to 2020, there would have been almost no news to report, he said, because the sun was experiencing solar minimum, the regular period of its cycle. solar 11 years where there is hardly any solar activity, such as sunspots and solar flares.

But this period is coming to an end and a solar maximum will take place from around 2024 to 2025.

“There will be more chances,” Murtagh said. “And no more false alarms too!”

Estonia Claims To Have Withstood Cyberattacks From Russian-Linked Hackers

Comment

Estonia said it successfully resisted a major cyberattack launched by Russian-aligned hackers trying to take down the websites of government offices, banks and healthcare providers in the Baltic nation.

Wednesday’s attacks came as NATO member Estonia moved a Soviet-era World War II monument to a museum – an effort that has sparked controversy in a country with a large ethnic Russian population. But the incursions – distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, which involve hackers trying to flood websites with more users than they can handle – have failed. “With a few brief and minor exceptions, the websites remained fully available throughout the day,” said Luukas Ilves, Director of Government Information.

Estonia is one of the major software development centers in Europe. The Baltic republic of 1.3 million people – which regained its independence in 1991 after decades of rule from Moscow – is also one of Ukraine’s strongest supporters in the face of Russian invasion. Tallinn provided, per inhabitantmore military and humanitarian aid to Kyiv than to any other country.

Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas, dubbed Europe’s “Iron Lady” for her refusal to compromise with the Kremlin over Ukraine, is also a world leader in efforts to deepen Western sanctions against Moscow.

Killnet, a pro-Russian hacking group, claimed responsibility for the attacks on its Telegram channel. He said he tried to cut off access to hundreds of websites in sectors including finance, health, education, government services and utilities. In June, Killnet also sought to overwhelm Lithuanian public service websites after that country began enforcing EU sanctions against a Russian enclave. Lithuanian officials said a cyberattack compromised access to more than 130 websites in late June.

Robert Potter, co-founder and managing director of Internet 2.0, an Australian cybersecurity company, said this week’s attack on Estonia was a high-intensity, short-term campaign, and that these efforts are ” generally less sophisticated”.

“Opponents are trading precision for scale. Therefore, it is best to interpret these attacks as messages rather than campaigns designed to destroy,” he said.

In 2007, Estonia suffered a massive cyberattack by hackers suspected of having ties to the Kremlin. Hackers crippled mail servers and forced a major bank to shut down online services for more than an hour. Many Estonian websites were forced to temporarily cut themselves off from the rest of the world, in what was the first known instance of a major nation-to-nation cyberattack. These attacks also took place after Estonia moved a Soviet-era World War II monument. Moscow has denied any involvement.

The 2007 attacks prompted the small Baltic country to improve its cybersecurity infrastructure, making it better prepared for this latest strike. It has a voluntary civilian cyber defense league and hosts an annual NATO-led cybersecurity training operation, the largest such exercise in the world. Microsoft also ranks Estonia high in its Digital Futures Index, which measures factors such as e-governance capabilities and digital infrastructure sophistication.

“Although subject to the most widespread cyberattacks, [Estonia] is stronger than we were in 2007″, Kallas wrote on Twitter on Thursday.

This week, Estonia removed a World War II Soviet T-34 tank from a monument near the Russian border. Officials said modern Russian tanks were now being used to kill innocent people in Ukraine.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has “ripped the wounds in our society that these communist monuments remind us of,” Kallas said recently.
