Ukraine-Russia War News: Putin’s Weary Forces Make First Gains In 3 Weeks As Wagner Mercenaries Seize Huge Power Plant

Advisor uses artistic talent to raise medical funds for Ukraine

A hospital consultant who started oil painting to relax during the pressures of the Covid pandemic is now selling her creations to raise funds for Ukraine.

dr Jennifer Elder, Consultant Respiratory Physician at Ulster Hospital, uses the landscape of the Co Down coast as inspiration for her images.

dr Elder, along with other doctors from across the UK, have joined MAU (Medical Aid Ukraine) which is raising funds to send essential health supplies to Ukraine.

Equipment and ambulances donated to the cause are now actively deployed in Ukrainian hospitals and MAU’s fundraising totals nearly £100,000.

dr Elder, who was born in Scotland but has lived in Co Down for 19 years, said her artwork was inspired by beauty spots such as Strangford Lough, Murlough and Tobermory.

She said: “I’m a respiratory medicine doctor first, but now one who breathes art – there are many things that make us feel alive and painting is one of them for me.

“I started painting during lockdown to escape after working long days in a high dependency Covid-19 ward.

“We all experience hundreds of different lights and moods in one day, which I hope I’ve captured in my pictures.

“That’s one of the reasons I started painting.”

Michael Buble’s sister-in-law cheated death in a horrific car crash in her native Argentina.

The mother-of-two had to be released by firefighters after sustaining neck and spine injuries in the accident in a Buenos Aires suburb called Martinez.

Dramatic footage from the scene of the accident showed the 43-year-old’s car being knocked over by a lamppost in front of a house on a residential street with its wheels pointing skyward.

Daniela, whose younger sister of actress Luisana is days away from having her fourth child with Canadian-born Buble, was yet to speak publicly about her fear around noon local time on Wednesday.

But Argentinian journalist Pia Shaw, speaking on a TV show which aired footage from the crash scene overnight, said: “The footage you see now is terrible and the protagonist is Daniela Lopilato. “

“She was admitted to Los Arcos Hospital in Buenos Aires but is now back home.

“The car you see on her roof is Daniela’s.

“It happened in the Martinez region. Another driver rammed Daniela’s car from behind. It was a pretty violent collision.

“She injured her neck and back and couldn’t get out of the car and was really scared. Firefighters were called in to help.

She added: ‘The other driver pulled over and handed over all his details. I spoke with Daniela shortly after she was discharged from the hospital and she told me that she had just realized that God had given her a second chance.

She feels alive thanks to God. She’s fine, but she’s had a traumatic experience and she’s still upset about it.

Buble shares Noah, nine, son Elias, six, and daughter Vida, four, with Luisana, 35, and the couple are expecting their fourth child.

It emerged that Luisana was pregnant in February when she was featured in her music video for I’ll Never Love You, with the actress pulling her husband out of a dream sequence, complete with his growing baby bump.

In April, Buble admitted he felt “so unstable and vulnerable” after Noah was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma, a type of liver cancer, in 2016 at the age of three.

The youngster underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy, with Michael putting his career on hold for a while amid his boy’s treatment.

But the jazz singer told how he was ready to get back into the groove after his son – now eight – went into remission.

Michael still faced the fear and uncertainty of his son’s diagnosis even after his first remission.

He told the Mirror: “I’ve been through a lot, obviously.” When I made the last record [in 2018]my son had just been in remission and I was not ready to come back,” he explained.

“I didn’t know it at the time but, mentally, I was so unstable and vulnerable. I made a safe record with producers I liked and just tried to protect myself and maintain a career.

“But I feel really good now and I couldn’t wait to go – like that big weight had been lifted off me. My son was healthy, my children and my wife were good, life is good. Why wouldn’t I explode just wanting to make an amazing record?’

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!”
