Police appeal for public’s help in finding missing University of Portland student

first_imgPortland Police Bureau(PORTLAND, Ore.) — Authorities are asking for the public’s help in locating a University of Portland student who disappeared Sunday night.Owen Klinger, 18, was last seen Sunday around 7:30 p.m. on the university’s campus in the Northeast Portland neighborhood of Oregon’s largest city. At the time, he was wearing a light-blue hooded sweatshirt and jeans with a small drawstring backpack, according to a press release from the Portland Police Bureau.Klinger’s mother said he had told his dormitory roommates that he was going to a lacrosse team meeting. But he never showed up at the gathering that night, and he hasn’t been in contact with friends or family since, which his mother said is unusual.“It’s really out of character for Owen not to come home to the dorm,” Mary Klinger said of her son, during an interview with Portland ABC affiliate KATU-TV.Portland Policed Bureau investigators are working with University of Portland officials to find Klinger, who is described as being just over 6 feet tall and weighing around 165 pounds.Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to immediately call 911.

Petrobras books smaller profit as output declines

first_imgHit by lower crude oil prices, Brazilian state-owned oil and gas giant Petrobras recorded a smaller profit in the first quarter of 2019 when compared to the same period last year amid production decline due to a series of stoppages.P-74 FPSO; Source: PetrobrasThe Brazilian giant on Tuesday posted a net income of $1.125 billion for the first quarter of the year, a 49% decrease when compared to the profit of $2.196 billion in the corresponding quarter of 2018. Net income attributable to shareholders of Petrobras in 1Q 2019 was $1.07 billion compared to $2.1 billion in 1Q 2019.The company’s revenues amounted to $21.2 billion in the first quarter of 2019, an 8% decrease when compared to the revenues of $22.96 billion in 1Q 2018.According to the company, this was mainly due to decrease in domestic revenues, lower export revenues driven by lower international prices of crude oil and oil products and by lower oil product export volumes; and decreased revenues from operations abroad following the disposal of E&P assets of Petrobras America Inc., the sale of distribution companies in Paraguay and lower international prices.Exploration costs were $174 million in 1Q 2019, a 28% increase ($38 million) compared to $136 million in 1Q18, mainly due to higher exploration expenditures relative to projects without commercial feasibility ($42 million) and to increased geological and geophysical expenses ($14 million).Petrobras CEO, Roberto Castello Branco, said: “From the beginning of the year, we initiated a transformational agenda based on our five strategic pillars. Consistent with the focus on the assets in which we are natural owners, in the first four months of the year our divestments reached $11.3 billion, a record for Petrobras. The highest value transaction was the sale of 90% of TAG for US$ 8.6 billion. In the near future it is our firm intention to sell the residual holdings of 10% in TAG and NTS.”Petrobras Crude oil, NGL and Natural Gas production in Brazil in 1Q 2019 decreased by 5% to 2,460 mbpd from 2,582 mbpd in the same period last year.The company explained that the oil, NGL and natural gas production decreased mainly due to the sale of 25% in Roncador field and the reduction of Petrobras’ participation in fields in the US, associated with the higher concentration of maintenance in platforms in the first quarter of 2019 and the natural decline in production.The decrease in production was partially offset by the start-up of seven new systems in the last 12 months, which are still in the process of commissioning and interconnecting new wells: P-74, P-75, P- 76 and P-77, in Búzios field; FPSO Campos dos Goytacazes, in Tartaruga Verde field, P-69, in the extreme south of Lula; and P-67, in the northern area of Lula.Offshore Energy Today StaffSpotted a typo?

ACA holds social event for students

first_imgFrom brain teasers to major-specific challenges, students will have the opportunity to team up and compete for four free Disneyland tickets at “The Academic Race” today.The event, hosted by the Academic Culture Assembly, will take place on McCarthy Quad from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Chick-fil-A sandwiches will also be provided to all participants.“We really hope to mix up the student population because at school, you usually meet people in your major and not other majors,” said Frank Chen, director of the Academic Cultural Assembly. “We wanted to create an event that mixes people of different majors to get together and work toward a common goal.”The event is loosely based on the popular TV show The Amazing Race and will have a similar set of rules.Students are asked to form teams of four. Teams will start out at the first station with a problem. Upon solving the problem, they will receive a clue to the next station. The team that completes the problem at the last station with the fewest penalties will be the winner. There will be 10 stations total.“We want this to be a way for [students] to spark interests in other fields,” Chen said. “We want to get students talking about what they’ve learned in their majors and to share it with each other.”Although students are encouraged to RSVP before the event, it is not required.“We’re trying to get 150 students to attend,” Chen said. “Right now we have about 10 to 15 teams, but we’re hoping that more people will come.”Helen Yuan, campus relations director of the Academic Cultural Assembly, said they did not originally plan for many people to attend the event.“Our limit is 20 teams,” Yuan said. “It’s the first year, so I’m not expecting too much, but hopefully it will be great.”Although this is the first time the event has been held, Yuan, who came up with the event idea, hopes it will become an annual event.“I’m really excited to see if everything works out and if people like the event,” Yuan said. “I think it’s great to let people of different majors interact and to emphasize people’s strengths.”last_img read more

Blogger Arrests in Egypt: This Week in Online Tyranny

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Before covering the events that have taken place this week in Egypt, I think it’s important to examine those stories that are in danger of being lost to the public’s consciousness because of the dramatic nature of what’s happening in Tahrir Square. Also, in one case, it’s instructive to talk about one case which came about as a direct result of Egypt. In fact, let’s start there, with Syria. Syria lifts Internet bans. Syria is an enthusiastic banner of social media tools. Facebook and YouTube have been banned in that authoritarian country for four years. But now, that ban has been lifted. This is a result of the Tunisian and Egyptian uprisings. Like those countries, Syria has labored under a prolonged tinhorn tyranny; in this case, it has endured two generations of Assad-family rule. Perhaps it’s hoped this relaxation will act as a pressure release. Perhaps it is also hoped that trouble-makers in the Syrian regime will be more easily identified if they are lured out in the virtual open. “It seems like a policy to curry favor with the youth,” Syrian dissident Ammar Abdulhamid told us. The relaxation was accompanied by the announcement of a food subsidy for the needy. Thailand prosecutes another blogger under lèse majesté. The trail for the prosecution of Chiranuch Premchaiporn, the webmaster of the Prachatai website, is ongoing. The charge of lèse majesté is a popular one in Thailand when the government finds anyone it wishes to muzzle. The charge is one of bad mouthing the king and queen, who are very popular in Thailand. It is the Thai equivalent of “insulting the leader” or “insulting religion.” Burma sentences imprisoned blogger to more time. Kaung Myat Hlaing, known by the blogging name of Nat Soe, has been sentenced to an additional ten year sentence on top of the two years he’s already serving. In a secret “trial,” Hlaing was convicted of being part of a poster campaign in support of dissident Aung San Suu Kyi and others. He was deprived of food and water for ten days until he “confessed” to being part of the postering group. China bans “Egypt” as search term. Most of the countries terrified by the people who are rising up in Tunisia and Egypt are Arab ones, like Saudi Arabia. But China is nothing if not forward thinking and accounts of people forcing their governments to account are definitely outre in the Middle Kingdom. So “Egypt” has joined “Tiananmen” and “falun gong” as banned terms on the Chinese Internet. Malaysia announces Internet censorship regime. The Malaysian government is drawing up “guidelines” (read: laws) for online behavior (read: speech). The fact that these rules are in conjunction with the country’s Sedition Act tells you everything you need to know about the motivation behind them. Blogging is popular in Malaysia and several of its more prominent bloggers eventually even ran for office; one of them, Jeff Ooi, becoming a member of the Malaysian parliament, which makes the limitations all the more unfortunate. American university a hot-bed of censorship. No country lives up to its ideals, but when the place where those ideals are most openly trodden on is the country’s university system, you know something’s wrong. The U.S. is big on free speech, enshrining it in the country’s highest law, the Constitution. But over the past decade or more, more and more university systems have outlawed speech that is “offensive.” Offensive speech is the only speech that requires constitutional and legal guarantee of course. The right to say “good morning” or “nice shoes” or “I like sunshine” is not one likely to be abrogated. The University of Massachusetts Amherst has made – I swear I am not making this up – on-campus rallies on “controversial” subjects (vague, much?) subject to a set of regulations that make them difficult if not impossible to stage. That’s right. At this point, it is easier for Egyptians to protest for the end of the Mubarak regime than UM students to protest against the continuation of U.S. presence in Iraq. I would call the administration of the University of Massachusetts a bunch of douchebags but it probably breaks the school’s speech code. This week in Egypt characterized by blogger abductionsSandmonkey abducted, beaten, freed. Well-known Egyptian blogger Sandmonkey was “arrested,” beaten up, then let go. His blog was also hit, “due to problems related to traffic and attacks (many from IPs in Saudi Arabia),” and has been taken offline “temporarily suspended until the problems can be resolved.” That was on the third; a post appeared again on the sixth. Kareem Amer. Kareem was a cause celebre internationally. He served four years in Egyptian prison for criticizing Islam as well as his country’s leadership. Although many Mideast youth defended his right to speak his mind and conscious, he was reviled in the Egyptian press and elsewhere. He was beaten and otherwise ill-treated by his jailers, repeatedly during his time in jail. He went missing around 11:00 p.m. local time on February 6 after leaving Tahrir Square with a friend. Wael Ghonim. The Google middle eastern marketing executive was held blindfolded by Egyptian security forces for 12 days. When he was released, he admitted to being one of the founders of the We are all Khaled Said group, whose Facebook page organized a lot of the protests. His subsequent TV interviews and speeches have rejuvenating a protest movement that showed signs of flagging before Ghonim was released. What do you like about This Week in Online Tyranny?
