Beitrag The most recent Fowl & Beans” poker game utilizes a major
The digital economy’s big annual trade show Nazair Jones Limited Jersey , CES, suffered a brief, disruptive plunge into darkness on Wednesday because of a power outage that the event’s organisers blamed on heavy rain.


The irony of a partial blackout at a trade show dedicated to the latest electronic technology did not escape social or industry media. “Lights out at CES 2018. Does anyone have a battery pack?” wrote Endgadget, a technology news site.




Large swaths of the sprawling Las Vegas convention centre lost power at about 11:15am local time Delano Hill Limited Jersey , shutting down brightly lit company booths and darkening rooms used by hundreds of journalists covering CES. Emergency lights stayed on, and backup batteries kept wireless internet connections functioning.


CES organisers said power was restored within minutes to the centre’s South Hall, where many gaming companies had exhibits. Other areas took longer. Power was fully restored at 2:10pm, CES said in a statement.




A preliminary assessment found that moisture from heavy rains on Tuesday had caused a “flashover” in one of the convention centre’s transformers Shaquill Griffin Limited Jersey , it said.


Power and rain are not the only challenges CES has faced this year. A central theme of this year’s show was Smart Cities, and automakers and other companies have used elaborate virtual reality displays of tree-lined streets with smooth flowing traffic to promote technology and investments aimed at relieving urban congestion.


On Las Vegas’ physical streets, traffic crawled on Tuesday as thousands of CES attendees shuttled between hotels and conference venues in heavy rain. Long lines formed at the convention centre for cabs. Ride hailing companies such as Uber and Lyft could not pick up passengers at the convention centre, but operated from parking lots a block or more away.(Agencies)


US President Donald Trump's administration on Thursday unveiled a sweeping new immigration plan to Congress that offers 1.8 million young unauthorized immigrants known as "Dreamers" a path to citizenship over 10-12 years.


Trump's comprehensive plan - which will be formally presented next week - includes eliminating the popular "green card lottery" programme and would severely restrict family immigration.


It would also require Congress to budget US$25 billion for a "trust fund" for constructing a wall on the US-Mexico border - a major plank of Trump's White House campaign.


"The Department of Homeland Security must have the tools to deter illegal immigrants; the ability to remove individuals who illegally enter the United States Ethan Pocic Limited Jersey , and the vital authorities necessary to protect national security," a senior White House official told journalists.


The White House's offer of a path to citizenship for the Dreamers was much wider than expected. Earlier it had suggested it was only open to granting citizenship to the 690,000 young immigrants registered under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA Malik McDowell Limited Jersey , programme.


But in exchange, Trump was asking Congress to make future legal immigration more difficult - and to shore up the Homeland Security Department's toolbox and funding to crack down on the overall population of unauthorized immigrants, estimated at some 11 million including Dreamers.


SHARP TURN IN IMMIGRATION POLICY


The plan represents a sharp shift in US immigration policies. Trump promised during his 2016 presidential campaign a tough crackdown on illegal immigration, but has extended this to narrowing the doors for legal immigrations and refugees.


The end of the lottery system -- which was introduced in 1990 to diversify the origins of new immigrants - was expected and has support from some Democrats. Trump has argued the programme has allowed people into the country who have supported Islamic extremists.


"This programme is riddled with fraud and abuse and does not serve the national interest Shaquem Griffin Limited Jersey ," the White House said in a summary Thursday.


Trump however at least momentarily undermined his push against the lottery when, in immigration bill negotiations with lawmakers in early January, he complained about immigrants from what he reportedly dubbed "shithole" nations like Haiti, El Salvador and countries in Africa Rashaad Penny Limited Jersey , sparking widespread outrage.


Trump has also argued for ending "chain" migration, the practice of allowing the extended family members of people who already have US citizenship to immigrate.


Thursday's proposal said that to "protect the nuclear family," family immigration would be only permitted for spouses and minor children.


BATTLE IN CONGRESS LIKELY


The White House plan immediately provoked the ire of Democrats, who made clear they would likely fight to water down the changes in negotiations in coming weeks.


Pro-immigration groups said it would reduce overall immigration by half.


"$25 billion as ransom for Dreamers with cuts to legal immigration and increases to deportations doesn't pass the laugh test Womens Frank Clark Jersey ," said Democratic Representative Luis Gutierrez.


"The White House released a hateful, xenophobic immigration proposal that would slash legal immigration to levels not seen since the racial quotas of the 1920s," said Lorella Praeli, director of immigration policy at the American Civil Liberties Union.


But Republicans voiced strong support.


"I applaud the president for releasing a realistic framework that meets the four immigration pillars agreed by both Republican and Democratic leaders earlier this month Womens Rees Odhiambo Jersey ," said Republican Senator Thom Tillis.


"The framework proposes solutions supported by both parties and the American people: securing our borders, providing long-term certainty for DACA-eligible youth, and making our immigration system more merit-based," he said.
