It will soon be a year since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left for the United States never to return. They announced it on January 18 after spending more than a month on vacation in Los Angeles, where they spent Christmas with Meghan’s mother instead of with the Royal Family, as had been tradition.

By Vanity Fair

Of course, before formally abandoning their life as royals, the Sussexes returned to the UK in March to say goodbye and finalize the deals for their long-awaited freedom, which was finally granted by Queen Elizabeth II in April. And since then, they have never seen each other again in person.

That is why all the British people were anxious to know how the next Christmas would go when Harry and Meghan had to return yes or yes to England. Although not for pleasure, but because on January 11 the trial that the dukes are holding against Associated Newspaper, which owns several tabloids, is scheduled to be held in London, which they accuse of publishing false information about them.

A legal battle that demands that the couple be present in the courtroom, something that in order to comply with it forces them to travel to England two weeks before the date of the trial to keep the corresponding quarantine that the British government requires of those who enter the country from United States.

But according to what has just been learned, finally that Christmas return could not take place. Well, the judge in charge of the case accepted the formal request that Harry and Meghan’s lawyers have sent to delay this meeting in court for several months.

Santoro commented that they played as kids with Perfumo, Bernao and others in the paddocks in the area, and they went to test together.
The relationship between the players was different. I believe because it was a very different society, there were codes and respect for older people, the priest, the policeman, the teacher, they were highly respected characters.

The effects of the weather in Quindío will be analyzed in real time – La Crónica del Quindío

Author: Karol Moreno García

It is estimated that in 2040 there will be an increase of 0.8 ° C in the temperature of the department.

With a platform, which will be built as part of the royalties project that is being executed to adapt to climate change, they seek to make the right decisions in ecosystems.

According to him Comprehensive Climate Change Management Plan, PIGCC, in Quindío It is expected that by 2040 there will be an increase in average temperature of 0.8 ° C and an increase in rainfall of 6.34% as a consequence of climate change.

By the end of the century the municipalities most affected by the increase in temperature —Which could be 2.3 ° C above the current one— would be Quimbaya, Montenegro, La Tebaida, Armenia, Circasia and Filandia; while due to the increase in rainfall – which is expected to be 24% more – the greatest impact would be received by Quimbaya and Filandia.

Miguel Ángel Mejía Díaz, director of rural development of the Ministry of Agriculture and Environment of Quindío, He explained that 0.8 ° C seems like a small number, but that it has big repercussions.

“The increase of 0.8 ° C in temperature can cause the crops to have to rise almost 100 meters above sea level because the climatic conditions, at the level they are today, are not going to favor them. Today we can see it as something small, but it will be a huge change in our way of life, for example, crops such as coffee or cocoa will have to disappear from municipalities like La Tebaida if we do not take action and do not think about the importance of this. ”

Currently the department starts the execution of the project by royalties ‘Implementation of adaptation actions stage I of the PIGCC in the department of Quindío’, in which an ecosystem services platform is built that will allow the climate to be analyzed in real time and thus make more accurate decisions that prevent the forecasts towards 2040 from being comply.

“We have just signed an agreement for about $ 3.8 billion with the University of Quindío that has large components and one is the ecosystem services platform, which is the most innovative for Quindío.”

Mejía Díaz specified that the platform will have 15 meteorological stations, within which there is a component called soundscape, which will begin to monitor the biodiversity in Quindío.

“With the tool, they will be able to compare how climate variability is behaving. In the event that there is a large amount of rainfall, it will be possible to know how it affected the functioning of the ecosystems. The soundscapes are recorders that will allow us to identify, through the song of the birds, for example, how much activity they have and it will be possible to begin to make the correlation ”.

He noted that these data will also serve to make decisions regarding agricultural production. “It is not the same to dry a coffee when we are at 40 ° C to dry it in November when we are in the rainy season. The idea is that with the data from the platform we can tell the coffee grower, look, there will be so much humidity for November, so do not dry your coffee for 12 hours, but in 15 hours. This is how we adapt our way of living to climate variability ”.

The platform you will start building from scratch. At this moment, all the necessary information is being taken to start assembling it. In December it is expected to have the architecture of the same and in February 2021 to have the first pilot of the station. By 2023, adjustments are expected to be made to make the tool functional.

Jaider Andrés Lopera, CRQ management advisor, He pointed out that the corporation currently has hydrometeorological stations that have been in operation for 30 years and that provide information —in real time and others that are not automatic and the data must be manually extracted— that serve as a baseline to determine changes in the weather. climate of the department.

He said the platform to be run with the royalties project seeks to measure the same parameters that CRQ stations measure —Precipitation, atmospheric pressure, sunlight, rainfall, climate—, so it will be important that the information generated by both tools can be integrated, so that users have a more consolidated reference.

“Although the same parameters are measured, the platform has different conditions than those of the CRQ hydrometeorological stations. What is sought is to adapt to the current conditions of the effect it generates on the climate. The idea is that we do not work independently, because this platform can generate useful information for the department and the country that is linked to the Institute of Hydrology, Meteorology and Environmental Studies, Ideam ”.

StarCraft 2 stops producing content 10 years after launch, but Blizzard will keep it alive

It seems that new games based on the franchise are not being ruled out, with no sequel announced yet.

In July 2010 it was put on sale StarCraft 2, a game that has remained the dominant RTS as it was with its predecessor. Now, Blizzard announces the cessation of development of new content for this title, which means that we will not have more commanders or chests to buy. But that does not necessarily mean that he will die.

Of course, the lack of news will put off many players, but the servers will remain active as up to now and their developers have confirmed that we will continue to have updates with balance adjustments and bug fixes, “focusing primarily on what matters most to our core and competitive community.”

Qualifying this last point, Blizzard ensures that SC2 will continue to maintain its usual representation in the eSports scene from the hand of ESL Gaming and GSL. What about the IP as such? In the past, the Warcraft fathers had no qualms about listing their most relevant games for the future. Right now StarCraft doesn’t have a sequel on the horizon, but it seems that something like this is not ruled out.

Or at least, it is what can be read between the lines following the closing of the entry. Producer Rob Bridenbecker concludes, “We will keep you posted on any and all plans we have for future forays into the Koprulu sector.” In the absence of something more specific, we remind you that Blizzard has announced Overwatch 2 Y Diablo IV (plus the spin-off Immortal) as well as the imminent expansion Shadowlands WoW, so it will surely be a while until we see their next big game.
