Huawei’s big week in court kicks off with extradition hearing in Vancouver

Vancouver, British Columbia (CNN Business)Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s chief financial officer, arrived in a packed courthouse in Vancouver, British Columbia, Monday morning for a hearing that could determine whether she is extradited from Canada to stand trial in the United States on charges of bank fraud and sanctions violations. Meng has been under house arrest in Vancouver while awaiting the extradition trial. She arrived Monday wearing a pair of black Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps that showed off her ankle monitor. She waved to the waiting media. This week’s hearing covers a crucial element of the extradition process called “double criminality.” In order to extradite someone from Canada, the conduct they will be tried for in the destination country — in this …

Walking sharks found near Australia

Hemiscyllium halmahera (Credit: Mark Erdmann) 70M YEAR-OLD DINOSAUR REPLACED ITS TEETH AS FAST AS SHARKS “They may have moved by swimming or walking on their fins, but it’s also possible they ‘hitched’ a ride on reefs moving westward across the top of New Guinea, about two million years ago,” Dudgeon added. Despite their scary sounding name, the 2-feet-long walking sharks don’t pose a threat to humans, Dudgeon said. They do “have a remarkable edge on their prey, small crustaceans and mollusks, due to their “ability to withstand low oxygen environments and walk on their fins,” the researcher added. “These unique features are not shared with their closest relatives the bamboo sharks or more distant relatives in the carpet shark order …

How I Lost 50+ Pounds On “The Fast Metabolism Diet” | Betches

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a difficult relationship with food. I don’t mean that as just something people say—the whole “as long as I can remember” thing. I literally recall being five years old, looking in the mirror, and thinking, “I’m fat.” Pretty brutal for basically an infant to think about herself, but as the years went on, those critical thoughts only grew and evolved. I hated my thighs, the ones that smushed together when I sat, and I hated my wide hips, the ones that pushed me into the juniors section long before my third grade classmates joined me there. It wasn’t just puberty and the appearance of my childbearing hips that made living in …

‘Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired’

“I used to say I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired,” Amber says. And in addition to chronic fatigue and nausea, she was having migraines, extreme abdominal pain, skin rashes and eczema. Her GP diagnosed a recurrence of teenage glandular fever. ‘Couldn’t walk’ And Amber, who lives in London, took two weeks off work to recover – but things got worse. “I lost my words – I couldn’t speak properly,” she says. “I’d sit at dinner with my partner and ask him to ‘pass the post’ instead of ‘the water’. “I couldn’t read numbers. “I couldn’t walk down to the shops – I’d have to sit down on somebody’s garden wall.” ‘Felt crazy’ As the two weeks …

Behind the Scenes at Rotten Tomatoes

Tim Ryan is an excitable 42-year-old film savant with a mop of reddish hair. In his early twenties, he worked as a news­paper reporter in Rhode Island and spent his downtime bingeing the classics. “Like Godard, and Russian propaganda films,” he says. Eventually he moved to the Bay Area, where the fledgling movie-rating website Rotten Tomatoes was then based. In his quest to devour the entire canon, Ryan had become a Rotten Tomatoes obsessive. When a job opened up at the site in 2004, it felt like a life-changing opportunity. He landed it, and now Ryan compares himself to the Mark Wahlberg character in the critically panned movie Related Stories Adam Rogers Rotten Tomatoes' Revamp Could Save Captain Marvel Movie …

‘My firm lost 90,000 in the House of Fraser sale’

Such deals are under scrutiny, with a key government report out soon which could reshape the process. Carrie James, president of the Insolvency Practitioners Association, argues that pre-packs are often the only way to save businesses and jobs. “If there’s nobody else interested in buying the business, the alternative is that quite often, that business would fail, so the return to suppliers or creditors would be much less. “The point of a pre-pack should be once the business has been sold and moved forward by a purchasing party, then they continue to work with those original suppliers, the idea being that whilst there’s this element of loss, there’s also a potential for recovery.” Related Topics Sports Direct House of Fraser …

Home renovations that are worth the cost (and the ones that aren’t)

Homeowners often spend a lot of money on renovations expecting to recoup more than they likely will. But some projects offer better returns than others. “It is important to make investments that will be the best use of your money,” Quinn said. “We don’t want to put in custom details that are only for your specific use. Think about things that will be valued by a range of people.” With a full kitchen renovation, homeowners can recoup about 59% of the cost, and a new master suite will typically return 50%, according to a study from the the National Association of Realtors and the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. But the highest returns come from less flashy projects.

Cut Undersea Cable Plunges Yemen Into Days-Long Internet Outage

Last week, the internet went dark for Yemen and its 28 million citizens. It's still not fully back today. In fact, the entire Red Sea region has dealt with slow to nonexistent connectivity since the severing of a single submarine cable on Thursday. It's popular to think of the internet as a cloud, but it's really under the sea. A lattice of massive cables crisscrosses the world, seeding connectivity to every continent and into each country. The cables naturally suffer breaks and cuts given those harsh conditions, but usually multiple cables serve each area to create redundancies and contingencies for when one line goes down. As Yemen's ongoing connectivity issues underscore, though, the fallback options for some regions are more …

The Gas Around The Milky Way Is Much Hotter Than We Thought

The Milky Way, like many other galaxies, is surrounded by a halo, a spherical region containing stars, gas, and a lot of dark matter. It extends for hundreds of light-years, much further than the disk where the Solar System is located. Despite its total mass of gas and stars being similar to that of the galaxy disk, the halo is so big that everything in it is very spread out, making it very difficult to study. One of our assumptions is the temperature of the gas in the halo. Galaxy formation models provide a range of values for how hot the gas can potentially get but new research published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters finds that some parts are at least 10 …
