America, meet your new first lady

first_img Do you see a typo or an error? Let us know. Published: November 10, 2016 1:19 PM EST Updated: November 10, 2016 1:31 PM EST (CNN)A foreign-born, former supermodel who married an eccentric billionaire is about to become the United States’ next first lady.Melania Trump, who will become just the second foreign-born first lady in US history, will assume the very public role after having spent much of her husband’s presidential campaign avoiding the campaign trail and the limelight, saying she preferred to remain home in New York to care for the couple’s only son, who is 10. She will succeed First Lady Michelle Obama, who has taken on a very public and active role in advocating for health and wellness issues.Trump delivered only a handful of speeches as her husband bounded from one unlikely phase of his campaign to the next. But she did lay out in broad terms what her priorities would be as first lady in the final week of the campaign — and to accomplish at least one of those, she may have to begin in the West Wing.That’s because Trump said in a speech last week outlining the priorities she would bring to the East Wing that in addition to “helping children and women,” she said combating cyber bullying will be “one of the main focuses” of her work as first lady.While Donald Trump has repeatedly mocked his opponents on Twitter over their looks and intelligence, Melania Trump vowed to combat meanness on the Internet, saying “our culture has gotten too mean and too tough,” particularly as others are mocked over their “looks or intelligence.”“It is never OK when a 12-year-old girl or boy is mocked, bullied or attacked. It is terrible when it happens on the playground, and it is absolutely unacceptable when it is done by someone with no name hiding on the internet. We have to find a better way to talk to each other,” Melania Trump said, delivering a rare speech in Pennsylvania last week. “We must find better ways to honor and support the basic goodness of our children, especially in social media.”But while her agenda as first lady may be tinged with irony, Melania Trump has in many ways been a balancing force for her husband — chiding him in private when his temper flared and he lashed out on Twitter at his political opponents and urging him to be more “presidential” in their private conversations.She has also served as a symbolic counterweight to her husband’s hardline rhetoric on immigration. While the Slovenian-born former model has said she agrees with her husband’s immigration proposals, Donald Trump and his supporters have frequently touted Melania Trump’s status as an immigrant to push back on attacks that Trump is anti-immigrant.Melania Trump has said becoming a naturalized US citizen in 2006 has been “the greatest privilege in the world.” She will become the second foreign-born first lady, 192 years after England-born Louisa Adams became first lady.But her immigration history also risked becoming a liability during the campaign amid reports that she may have worked as a model in the United States before obtaining the proper paperwork to work legally in the US. She and her attorney have insisted she followed all appropriate laws.Before her speech last week, Melania Trump delivered only one major speech in the campaign — at the Republican National Convention before her husband accepted the Republican presidential nomination.While initially well-received, the speech was ultimately tarnished by controversy after it came to light that parts of the speech were lifted from Michelle Obama’s speech to the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

Oddman who won silver in division 23 of the 222m event on Wednesday..Oddman, 35, secured Jamaica’s first medal at the Austria 2017 Games.However, Austin took it a step further yesterday as a handful of long strides from a standing start powered him to the front.In almost no time he had a 20-metre lead.Thereafter, it was merely a matter of maintaining composure and not falling, though on at least two occasions he almost lost balance while negotiating the bends.By the final lap it became certain that the best the Hong Kong trio could do was to jostle for the remaining two medal positions as Austin went into cruise mode.last_img read more

first_imgHaitian nationals residing in Dominica have been encouraged to visit local health centers to obtain vaccination.

Mr Timothy also noted “serious concern” as Dominica has recorded a drop in its immunization coverage for 2012. “Our immunization coverage for 2012 has dropped for two of the antigens given, under the EPI Program to 81 percent and for DPT, 94 percent for MRI compared previously over 95 percent for all antigens,” he said. According to Mr Timothy, his ministry has noticed a negative trend where officials have become complacent in immunization.He therefore called on them to remain vigilant in efforts to ensure that children and adults are vaccinated.The Minister stressed that immunization is one of the most successful and cost effective health interventions and prevents between two to three million deaths every year at the global level.

2023, SNCF Hadirkan Prototipe Kereta Api Tanpa Awak di Perancis

first_img(The Whistler NG) Kereta otonom atau tanpa pengemudi semakin hari banyak negara yang mengembangkannya untuk digunakan di jalur perkeretaapian mereka. Seperti Perancis yang akan mengenalkan kereta tanpa pengemudinya tahun 2023 mendatang.Baca juga: Trafik Penumpang Terus Melesat, Bandara Shenzhen Siap Operasikan Sistem Kereta OtonomSNCF (Société nationale des chemins de fer français) sebagai operator kereta api asal Perancis rencananya akan memperkenalkan prototipe kereta utama tanpa pengemudi untuk barang dan penumpang ini tahun 2023 mendatang. Kemudian setelah itu akan memasukkan kereta-kereta tanpa pengemudi ini dalam layanan terjadwal di tahun-tahun berikutnya. Dilansir KabarPenumpang.com dari laman france24.com (13/9/2018), Ketua SNCF Guillaume Pepy mengatakan, dengan kereta api otonom atau tanpa pengemudi, semua kereta diharapkan akan berjalan dengan cara yang harmonis pada kecepatan yang sama. Sehingga sistem layanan kereta api akan menjadi lebih baik dan mengalir.Operator SNCF sendiri berharap peralihan ini memungkinkannya untuk menjalankan lebih banyak kereta api di jalur utama tersibuk di Perancis. Selain itu dengan kereta api tanpa awak juga diharapkan bisa memotong konsumsi energi.“Banyak kota, termasuk Paris, sudah menjalankan kereta metro tanpa sopir tetapi perjalanan jarak jauh tanpa pengemudi menghadirkan tantangan baru. Kereta api adalah sistem terbuka dan yang tidak terduga adalah aturannya,” kata Pepy.Adanya kereta tanpa pengemudi ini operator SNCF akan bermitra dengan spesialis rolling stock Alstom dan Bombardier yang masing-masing akan menuju konsorsium untuk lalu lintas barang dan penumpang. Pierre Izard dari divisi teknologi rel SNCF mengatakan, pergeseran kereta tanpa awak sendiri di Prancis akan dilakukan secara bertahap.“Dimana dari adanya masinis yang mengemudikan kereta api hingga yang paling ekstrim dari otomatisasi dimana tidak ada lagi kehadiran manusia dalam menjalankan kereta api,” ujar Izard.Pepy menambhakan, bahwa kereta otonom sendiri jelass merupakan masa depan, tetapi dirinya juga mengatakan hal tersebut mungkin butuh waktu sebelum penumpang menerima kereta tanpa pengemudi.Baca juga: Eco4, Kereta Otonom Ramah Lingkungan Mahakarya Bombardier“Meskipun Australia, Cina dan Jepang sudah bereksperimen dengan kereta tanpa pengemudi, Prancis tidak datang terlalu terlambat untuk permainan,” ujar Carole Desnost, kepala inovasi di SNCF.SNCF mengatakan sedang berbicara dengan operator Jerman, Deutsche Bahn tentang mempromosikan standar Eropa untuk kereta tanpa pengemudi.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related‘Macet’ Jadi Alasan Mengapa Kereta di Rusia Jadi yang Terlamban di Dunia16/09/2020In “Analisa Angkutan”FlixTrain Mulai Masuki Pasar Kereta Api Perancis21/06/2019In “Darat”Perancis Terapkan Internet of Things Untuk Kendalikan Pintu Kereta27/06/2018In “Basis Aplikasi”last_img read more
