The 31 May 2002 anti-terrorist law extended the minimum time for data retention to a year and allowed police and intelligence agents to look at such material with court permission where serious crimes were involved and to install on ISP servers software similar to the US Carnivore system to record key-strokes and intercept e-mail.The Danish presidency of the European Union (EU) tried to impose this approach on other member-states when it made a proposal on 24 June 2002 called “information technology related measures concerning the investigation and prosecution of organised crime.” It said all member-states would soon have to take steps to oblige phone companies and ISPs to retain all their traffic records “so security services can readily consult it in the course of their investigations.”In September 2002, the government tempered its restrictive measures by setting up a commission to safeguard citizens’ computer rights which was due to make proposals in June 2003.

Governor Shumlin unveils proposal to boost renewable energy funding

first_imgGovernor Peter Shumlin today outlined his proposal to increase available funding for renewable energy projects through the Vermont’s Clean Energy Development Fund without adding a fee to electric bills at a time when Vermonters are pressed for cash.‘Instead of adding a 55 cent monthly fee to Vermonters’ electric bills for one year, I propose an option to those who have already been offered solar tax credits funded by the CEDF to take a 50 percent discount on the value of their credits in return for receiving an upfront, one-time grant in lieu of the credit, once their projects are up and running,’ the Governor explained at a news conference in Montpelier on Monday.The Governor’s plan is modeled on the current federal law, which allows for 100 percent cash payment from the Department of Treasury.Currently, $8.5 million in CEDF funds have been committed to pay out tax credits for 93 projects by 23 different businesses over the next five years, as investors have income to offset the credits they are owed. The Governor’s proposal is estimated to free up between $2.7 million and $3 million of those funds to be redirected to support other renewable energy projects. That compares to the $2.3 million that the 55 cent fee was estimated to raise.The Governor called the plan a win-win for Vermont.‘This proposal is good for ratepayers, good for renewable energy, and good for Vermont businesses,’ Gov. Shumlin said.‘Our new State Energy Plan due to be released in October will include a recommendation for the long term funding of the Clean Energy Development Fund. Like many legislators, I agree we need an interim plan to allow the Clean Energy Development Fund to incentivize renewable energy projects and technologies. My proposal does that,’ the Governor stated. Source: governor’s office. 4.11.2011last_img read more

Cappa: Why Sanchez better than Ronaldo

first_imgFormer Real Madrid assistant coach, Angel Cappa, has described Hugo Sanchez as a brighter footballer than Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo, now with Juventus, is regarded by many as Real’s greatest player.Advertisement Loading… But Cappa argues: “Cristiano is a very complete player because he can score with both feet, from a free-kick and a header. We saw what he did in Madrid for 9 years, but I think Hugo Sánchez was cleverer inside the box. I was behind the goal when I saw the movements Sánchez did to get rid of the defenders and score goals… “Hugo Sanchez was so good at tricking defenders without the ball and that is key for a striker if he wants to succeed in a big club like Real Madrid.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This YearWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Top 10 Most Romantic Nations In The WorldTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All Time8 Shows That Went From “Funny” To “Why Am I Watching This”5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksCan Playing Too Many Video Games Hurt Your Body?11 Most Immersive Game To Play On Your Table Top8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its GrowthBest Car Manufacturers In The WorldBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them7 Interesting Facts About GoT Star Maisie Williamslast_img read more

Premier League return: the issues to resolve

first_imgPremier League return on the 17th JuneLondon, United Kingdom | AFP |  Premier League football is set to return on June 17 after a three-month coronavirus-enforced absence.Nothing realistically will stop Liverpool from being crowned English champions for the first time in 30 years.But there are a whole host of other issues to sort out, including relegation and next year’s European places, with the drama set to take place in empty, echoing stadiums.AFP Sport takes a look at what still needs to be resolved.When will Liverpool be champions?Liverpool were 25 points clear of Manchester City and just two wins away from becoming English champions for the first time since 1990 when the league was suspended in March.But while COVID-19 may have delayed their title party, nobody seriously believes it is not going to happen.Two more wins would make it mathematically impossible for City to catch Liverpool but the Reds could triumph by winning their first game if City lose at home to Arsenal on June 17.Jurgen Klopp’s men can also break two of City’s most cherished records — they need 19 points from the remaining 27 to beat the Manchester club’s total of 100 points from the 2017/18 season and they could also better City’s record title-winning margin of 19 points from the same campaign.Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson lifted the Champions League trophy in a packed stadium in Madrid last June but is preparing for a different experience this year.“Of course it would feel different because if you win any trophy and receive it without any fans there, it would be pretty strange,” he told the BBC.Champions League battleIntriguingly, the battle for the top four might instead be a battle for the top five.Liverpool are assured of their place in the Champions League and the other top-four places are currently occupied by Manchester City, Leicester and Chelsea. But as things stand, City cannot compete in Europe’s top club competition for the next two seasons after being banned for financial fair play breaches.Pep Guardiola’s side have appealed, however, and could still compete if the suspension is overturned.If it is upheld, whoever finishes fifth will take their place in next season’s Champions League. Manchester United currently occupy that position but Wolves and Sheffield United are both just two points behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.Eighth-placed Tottenham and Arsenal, one spot lower, will also fancy their chances of finishing fifth with a late charge.Battle to avoid the dropNorwich, Aston Villa and Bournemouth occupy the bottom three places in the Premier League but all will harbour hopes they can escape the drop.Norwich are rock-bottom and six points from safety but a win at home to Leicester in late February gave them hope.Villa had lost four straight games before the shutdown so the break could end up helping the Birmingham team, who have a game in hand over their rivals, while Eddie Howe will be desperate for Bournemouth to find some form after a run of seven defeats in 10 games.Above the current bottom three, Watford are still in trouble despite their impressive initial revival under Nigel Pearson, while West Ham and Brighton are far from safe.Fit to playA clutch of top players will be raring to go after lengthy spells on the sidelines.England striker Harry Kane is hungry for a return and Spurs team-mate Son Heung-min will also be able to feature after recovering from a broken arm.Manchester United pair Paul Pogba, with just eight appearances this season, and Marcus Rashford, out of action since January with a back injury, should also feature.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
