GEORGE TOWN: The proposed Kulim Airport will have a negative impact on Penang, especially the Penang International Airport (LTAPP), the Penang Legislative Assembly was told today. Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said this view was based on reports prepared by consultants who conducted feasibility studies on the proposed airport in neighbouring Kedah. “The Penang government is firm in its view that the Transport Ministry should study this matter again and detailed studies need to be undertaken to ensure the proposed development will be holistic and benefit all parties,” he said. He was answering an oral question from Goh Choon Aik (PH-Bukit Tambun), who wanted to know the state government’s stand on the proposed airport. Chow said the Kulim airport project is under the jurisdiction of the Transport Ministry while its management comes under Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB). The proposed Kulim airport, estimated to cost RM1.6 billion, is among seven high-impact … [Read more...] about Proposed Kulim Airport will have negative impact on Penang: Chow

Here is a young man standing with a rifle, pointing right at me," he said."And I look at him. He had sunglasses on, I couldn't see his eyes, I couldn't see his soul. I froze."Goldstein's first concern was for Kaye, a 60-year-old long time congregation member, whom he described as a person … [Read more...] about ‘Evil will never prevail’: US rabbi hails heroes of synagogue attack

By Gilbert Ngabo Staff Reporter Kristin Rushowy Queen's Park Bureau Sun., April 28, 2019 The Toronto District School Board says it will need to make “hard decisions” in an effort to balance its budget after the province announced a funding plan that will leave the board with $21 million less than last year, according to a TDSB analysis. Education Minister Lisa Thompson announced Friday that the province will invest $24.66 billion to boards across Ontario through the Grants for Student Needs (GSN), with a per-pupil funding projected at $12,246.

Well, most of us. Even those who’ll lament the narrative’s end, but will be none the worse for wear and tear through eight seasons (make that nine years). Yeah, like Otso Diretso, plus 1. I can’t watch Episode 3’s original airing this morning, as I'll be involved in another annual ritual involving fiction and poetry. But I’ve been happily assured that Florentina Homes in Dumaguete has a cable TV local provider whose channels include HBO. And that I can even watch the 10 p.m. replay on HD at Gabby’s Bistro, with its wider screen as a Cignal recipient. So, like most of you who are GOT 8 (and Otso Diretso) fans, I should see who get killed off in the Great Battle of Winterfell. Should be quite a bloodbath, with blogging pretenders to three-eyed raven augury largely predicting that the Night King will take Game 1, and decimate Winterfell the way Thanos did the Avengers. Until his White Walkers claim a nine-dash line to include the Winterfell crypt, … [Read more...] about Who will survive ‘GOT’?
