29 February 2008As West Darfur continues to be scourged by a new wave of air and ground attacks, the United Nations refugee agency estimated today that more than 13,000 Sudanese have fled to a remote area of Chad that is beset by its own inter-ethnic strife. According to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), just this week an additional 3,000 refugees arrived in eastern Chad’s volatile Birak area, where an assistance mission was cancelled yesterday after armed men on horseback were spotted, along with black smoke rising from a burning village.“The insecurity and close proximity to the Sudanese border mean UNHCR cannot establish a camp in the Birak area, but we are trying to provide emergency assistance when our teams can get there,” UNHCR spokesman Ron Redmond said in Geneva. The agency is still awaiting approval from the Government of Chad to move the refugees to existing camps that already house 240,000 people uprooted by the five-year conflict in Darfur, in which the Sudanese Government and militias are fighting rebel factions and in which over 200,000 people, mainly non-combatants, have died.A UNHCR team which reached the Birak area earlier in the week reported that the new arrivals had come there because of repeated militia assaults on the Jebel Moun region of West Darfur.Meanwhile, the Deputy Special Representative for Sudan, Ameerah Haq, visited Sileah in West Darfur yesterday as part of an inter-agency assessment mission and found the town – which normally has a population of 20,000 – almost empty. Only around 300 people remained, mostly elderly citizens who could not flee. The town was attacked on 8 February, in the beginning of the current onslaught. read more


For the first time in 13 years a full moon will occur

October 7, 2019

Coming this Friday night: the spookiest full moon in 13 years.This Friday the 13th full moon is the first since January 2006.But this full moon, most commonly known as the harvest moon, will appear much smaller than most. That’s because the moon will be at apogee, or the farthest point in its roughly four-week orbit. Timeanddate.com estimates a “micromoon” appears 14 per cent smaller and 30 per cent dimmer than the widely reported “supermoons” that dominate the news.Though there is no universal definition governing what qualifies as a supermoon or micromoon, Time and Date says micromoons must be more than 251,655 miles away from Earth. Friday night’s moon will be 816 miles farther than that.Supermoons, on the other hand, must be at least 2,039 miles closer to Earth than a micromoon. Most of the time, the moon sits somewhere in between those bounds.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.The moon rises over Washington at 7:31 p.m. Friday. Just look to the east about five minutes after sunset, and you’ll see the orange disk poking above the horizon. Until it’s firmly planted high in the sky, however, it’ll be tough to appreciate just how small it looks. A full moon rises behind the Temple of Poseidon in Cape Sounion, near Athens, Greece, August 15, 2019. If you’re looking for a fun Friday night, considering inviting your friends and/or resident canine to howl together at the lunar disk.Some call the harvest moon the “corn moon,” since September marks a time during which farmers in the Plains typically begin harvesting their corn. Farther north, some may wait a bit later.This Friday the 13th full moon won’t technically reach peak illumination until 12:32 a.m. Eastern time on Saturday, but for all practical purposes is considered full Friday night. This was also the case in January 2006, when the moon rose the night of the 13th but became full on 4:48 a.m. on Saturday, the 14th.The next time we’ll have a moon approaching fullness on Friday the 13th (before achieving total illumination the next morning) will be in a little over 13 years, in May 2033.And if you’re looking for something really riveting, mark your calendar for 2037. There will be two blue moons in a span of three months – a blue moon defined as the second full moon in a calendar month. They’ll occur on Jan. 31 and March 31, both months that will also feature a full moon on the first of the month. In addition, March 13, 2037, falls on a Friday.What a time to be alive.

Music publishers caught faking billions of YouTube video views

first_imgMusic publishers are determined to stamp out piracy through lawsuits, pushing hard for new laws, and advertising campaigns to highlight how bad piracy is. But when it comes to bolstering revenue from YouTube videos, it seems they don’t mind breaking the rules and generating billions of fake views.The problem is, Google has caught three music publishers doing just that, and deleted billions of video views in response.RCA, Sony/BMG, and Universal, have all been found to be using online services in order to generate more views for specific videos. By doing this it creates more interest as the videos are seen as being popular and in turn get more exposure. But views also generate revenue for both Google and the music publishers from the adverts positioned next to them.The extent of the artificial views is quite staggering. RCA had managed to add 39 million fake views to its videos, Sony/BMG added 847.7 million, but Universal is the worst offender and has had well over a billion fake views removed from videos. I can only imagine the impact those views had on the exposure and revenue-generating ability of each video.It looks as though Google has just slapped these companies on the wrist for violating YouTube’s terms of service. If this were a user, they’d be facing an account ban, but it’s a bit different when the violation is performed by companies who must generate a considerable amount of revenue for Google, even before faking video views.I’d say this is the last we’ll hear about this particular incident, but I would not be at all surprised to see more fake views appearing in the future. They’ll probably just use a new method to generate them and hope to not get caught again.via Tom’s Guidelast_img read more

first_imgA white Ford Fusion that rammed a Vancouver police car and led officers on a chase Tuesday night is believed to be connected to multiple vehicle prowls, police said Wednesday.Officers with Vancouver’s Neighborhood Response Teams were watching an apartment complex Tuesday night to attempt to find the car, a 2010 four-door Fusion with Oregon license plate WVN807, police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said. The plate was stolen from a different car, she said.Officers found the car and were watching it when two subjects got into the car, Kapp said. Police pinned the vehicle against a curb and ordered people out of the car. The driver jumped the curb, went into reverse and slammed into an undercover police car. The police car went back 10 feet and spun 90 degrees, Kapp said. A sergeant had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit.The Fusion’s driver left the parking lot and fled the area at a high rate of speed, running stop signs, Kapp said. Police saw the car heading east on Southeast 29th Street at 164th Avenue but lost it after that.According to police, the car is believed to be connected to several auto prowls. Suspects are wanted for theft of a firearm, credit and debit card theft, fraud, theft, hit and run, first-degree assault and fleeing from marked police vehicles.last_img read more


Netflix hikes monthly cost by 1 for new subscribers

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO — Netflix raised prices for new subscribers by $1, to $8.99 a month, the first increase in three years for the video-streaming service that offers the series “House of Cards.”As part of the change, the world’s largest subscription streaming service introduced a $7.99 plan that doesn’t deliver high-definition TV or let subscribers view programs on more than one device at a time, according to the Los Gatos, California- based company.The move reflects Chief Executive Officer Reed Hastings’s acknowledgment last month that his rising budget for movies and TV shows would require higher prices. Existing customers will continue to pay the same price for another two years.“To continue to add more movies and TV shows, we are increasing the price of our $7.99-a-month streaming plan by $1 to $8.99,” Netflix said in an email.The increase, amounting to almost 13 percent, is effective immediately worldwide, said Jonathan Friedland, a Netflix spokesman. The change may be greater in some countries because of currency effects, he said. Existing customers, in addition to avoiding the price increase for now, keep the ability to watch on two devices at once.last_img read more

Angry Birds gets a forcefeedback controller

first_imgRovio is attempting to, and has succeeded for the most part in getting Angry Birds on to every available platform. They’ve even had some help catering to outdated platforms with the game appearing on the Sega Genesis.Lots of platforms means a number of input methods, and Angry Birds on PC/Mac just got new one in the form of a custom force-feedback USB controller.We’ve already seen a USB slingshot created for the game, but this project is a little more advanced. It’s called the Super Angry Birds (SAB) controller, and gives you complete control over the angle and force used to fire the bird out of the slingshot. It even includes a detonator for use with those special birds.To SAB controller was created in a Haptics class at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design by Hideaki Matsui and Andrew Spitz. It brought together a range of technology including a motorized fader more commonly found in an audio mixing console, an electric motor, and an Arduino board.The fader is what slides back and forth to simulate the slingshot on-screen. The electric motor is used to apply an opposing force to catapult the bird and provide the force-feedback. Matsui and Spitz then created a force curve so they could track the force applied and transmit the appropriate input to the game. All programming was done using the visual programming tool MAX.It certainly adds something to the game that you won’t get from the more typical key or touchscreen input. If they could package this controller up into a more compact, cleaner unit, I bet they’d get backing on Kickstarter to ship it.Read more at sound + designlast_img read more


New calcium phosphate foam could help repair damage due to osteoporoses

first_img Layered approach may yield stronger, more successful bone implants Explore further This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. For over a century, surgeons have used various types of calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) to repair bones that have been damaged due to trauma, which has worked very well for a variety of circumstances. One area where they have not worked well, however, has been in repairing bone that has degenerated due to diseases such as osteoporoses. The problem has been that conventional CPCs are microporous, but not macroporous—the difference is in the size of air cavities inside of the material. To be useful for repairing bones that have degenerated, the cavities need to be larger than 50 nanometers. In this new effort, the research team reports that the foam they have developed meets that criterion.The foam was made by putting a silanised-hydroxypropyl methylcellulose hydrogel in one syringe and a conventional CPC in another syringe. After pumping air into the CPC syringe, the two syringes were connected together and then both plungers were pushed simultaneously, causing the two to mix, along with air. The result was cavity formation evenly throughout the merged material. The resulting foam was tested by nicking the bones of test rabbits and then injecting the foam into the area to see if it would fill in the missing bone area, serving as a place-holder while new bone grew in to fill the gap. The researchers report that there was no noticeable toxic impact on the rabbits and that new bone grew as hoped into the injured sites, offering hope that it could be used to repair similar injuries in humans and perhaps even as a method for rejuvenating bone that has deteriorated due to disease.The team plans to conduct more testing of the material with the goal of taking it to clinical trials one day soon as both a tool for treating traumatized bones and for helping people with bone diseases.

DOI: 10.1016/j.actbio.2015.11.055AbstractIn this study, we propose a simple and effective strategy to prepare injectable macroporous calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) by syringe-foaming via hydrophilic viscous polymeric solution, such as using silanized-hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (Si-HPMC) as a foaming agent. The Si-HPMC foamed CPCs demonstrate excellent handling properties such as injectability and cohesion. After hardening the foamed CPCs possess hierarchical macropores and their mechanical properties (Young’s modulus and compressive strength) are comparable to those of cancellous bone. Moreover, a preliminary in vivo study in the distal femoral sites of rabbits was conducted to evaluate the biofunctionality of this injectable macroporous CPC. The evidence of newly formed bone in the central zone of implantation site indicates the feasibility and effectiveness of this foaming strategy that will have to be optimized by further extensive animal experiments.last_img read more


Windows 10 Home vs Pro vs S

first_imgWindows 10 Home vs Pro vs S by Martin Brinkmann on May 04, 2017 in Windows – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 20 commentsConsumers have three core Windows 10 editions that they may run on their systems: Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Pro, and the recently revealed Windows 10 S.Before you make a purchase, be it a copy of Windows 10 directly, or a PC that runs Windows 10, you need to know about the differences between those editions to make an educated decision.Do you need the extra functionality that Pro offers over Home, or are you fine with the extra limitations of Windows 10 S? Can you run all the programs that you ran in the past on all three editions?The following guide provides you with the answers to that.Windows 10 Home vs Pro vs Sonfiguration & features*Windows 10 SWindows 10 HomeWindows 10 ProNon-Windows Store applications XXDomain Join on premise  XAzure AD domain joinX XWindows Store AppsXXXDefault browser hardened to Microsoft EdgeX ConfigurableConfigurableWindows Update for BusinessX XWindows Store for BusinessX XMobile Device Management (MDM)XLimitedXBitlockerX XEnterprise state roaming with Azure ADX XShared PC ConfigurationX XOtherWindows 10 SWindows 10 HomeWindows 10 ProMicrosoft Edge/Internet Explorer search default: Bing and designated regional search providers XConfigurableConfigurableSwitch to Windows 10 Pro (through Windows Store)XX Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Professional were both released in 2015, while Windows 10 S is a new edition that Microsoft unveiled in 2017.One of the main differentiators is price. Windows 10 Home is offered for $119.99, and Windows 10 Pro for $199.99 on the Microsoft Store. Retailers offer this for cheaper usually. If you check Amazon for instance, you will discover that Windows 10 Pro is offered for $139.99 and Windows 10 Home for $109.99.You can get licenses even cheaper in a number of ways. It is for instance still possible to use a genuine Windows 7 or 8.1 license to upgrade to Windows 10. These licenses are available on the cheap on marketplaces like eBay.It is unclear yet how expensive Windows 10 S will be. Microsoft revealed information on the surface Laptop technical specs sheet that customers may switch to Windows 10 Pro for free until the end of 2017.  The regular upgrade price appears to be $49 for an upgrade from Windows 10 S to Pro.Non-Windows Store applicationsWindows 10 Home and Pro users may install applications offered on the Windows Store, and also Win32 programs that they download from third-party websites.The same is not true for Windows 10 S devices, as users on the operating system may only use the programs that the system ships with, and what is offered on the Windows Store.This becomes only available when Windows 10 S is upgraded to Windows 10 Pro. Some of the advantages that Windows 10 S offers are lost in the process, and a downgrade at a later point in time is no longer possible.Business Features Things get interesting when it comes to business features. The situation is very clear when it comes to Windows 10 Home vs Pro. Home does not support business features such as Domain Join on premise, Azure AD domain join, Windows Store for Business, Windows Update for Business, Bitlocker, Enterprise State Roaming, or Shared PC Configuration.It is interesting to note that most of these features, with the exception of  domain join on premise, are also supported by Windows 10 S. This means that Windows 10 S is better prepared for being run in business or education environments (the lack of Win32 program support on the other hand is a serious drawback).Azure AD domain join — Optimized for users who access cloud resources primarily, and admins who manage devices from the cloud using MDM.Bitlocker — Bitlocker is an encryption technology that users may use to encrypt entire hard drives. One of the advantages of Bitlocker is that it is integrated natively in Windows 10 versions that support it.Domain Join on premise — Domain Join adds a computer to the Active Directory domain. Computers that join get a unique ID, and administrators may set settings and policies.Enterprise Roaming — Azure Active Directory users may sync user settings and application settings data with the cloud, and all devices that run Windows 10 that they use for a faster and unified experience.Shared PC Configuration — Optimizes Windows 10 for shared use scenarios such as temporary customer use or “touchdown spaces” in an Enterprise.Windows Store for Business — The Microsoft Store for Business and Education is a special store that helps businesses and organizations find, acquire, distribute and manage apps.Windows Update for Business —  Helps administrators keep Windows 10 devices of an organization up to date using Group Policy or MDM solutions such as Intune to configure and control settings and updates.Windows 10 Home vs Pro vs S (old feature table)Microsoft’s list of the difference that it published during the launch of Windows 10 S is different from the comparison table that the company published when it launched Windows 10.Windows 10 S will not support some of these features, Hyper-V or the Linux subsystem, but Microsoft has yet to publish information on some of the others.It is for instance not clear whether Windows 10 S supports Remote Desktop or Trusted Boot, and how much RAM devices that ship with it can pack.Windows 10 HomeWindows 10 ProWindows 10 SCreate and join a domain (work network)NoYesJoin yes, create unknownBitLockerNoYesYesGroup policy managementNoYesYesRemote DesktopNoYesunknownHyper-VNoYesNoAssigned AccessNoYesunknownEnterprise Mode Internet ExplorerNoYesunknownWindows Store for BusinessNoYesYesTrusted BootNoYesunknownWindows Update for BusinessNoYesYesMax supported RAM128GB2TBunknownWindows 10 S: things to considerWindows 10 S is a special version of Windows 10. With that come some advantages, like better battery life of devices, a reduced attack vector, a relatively cheap upgrade to Pro, free 1-year Office 365 subscription, and support for some of the business features mentioned above that Home users don’t get access to, but also disadvantages:You may run into hardware issues, especially with older hardware.

Gesy a sick system from its inception private hospitals say

first_imgTHE private hospitals’ association (Pasin) on Friday criticised the government for cultivating “super expectations” among the public on the national health scheme (Gesy) through populism and oversimplifying things.In a press conference, the association called out “the lies” of the Health Insurance Organisation (HIO) the state agency tasked with managing Gesy.Pasin spokemsan Dr Marinos Soteriou, said the HIO’s lies were aimed at cultivating super expectations among the public for a health scheme that was planned “haphazardly and in an amateur way.”The proposed Gesy, Soteriou said, “is unfortunately ill since its inception.” It is for this reason, he said, it needs competent doctors and quality inpatient care to get well.Soteriou said it was a lie that Gesy was based as an actuarial study analyzing the existing system and comparing it with the proposed health scheme. The study was carried out in 2010 and did not take into consideration the economic crisis three years later. He said it needed to be updated “so that we know what is true today and not what was true nine years ago.”Pasin also dismissed as lies the idea that Gesy would provide universal health care, that patients would be able to choose any doctor or hospital they wished and receive top-quality healthcare.“The HIO already knows that patients who can afford to, can pay the difference and buy brand name drugs,” Soteriou said. This alone, he said, creates “two-tier patients.”He added that patients would not be able to choose any hospital or doctor, as they will have no access to hospitals and doctors who chose not to join Gesy if they are not covered by private insurance or are able to cover medical expenses.Since private hospitals will not join Gesy, he said, “it is a myth that everyone will have access to top-quality healthcare.”As regards top-quality healthcare to patients, Soteriou said that the HIO, according to the list it prepared with the cost for each medical condition, patient care costs cover, on average, 60 per cent of actual costs.This means that private hospitals, which will not receive a state subsidy as opposed to the state ones, “will be forced to cover the difference by cost reduction (since it will not be possible to collect the difference from the beneficiaries).”“This, in practice, means automatic degradation of the quality of hospital care, as there will be no choice but to use questionable quality and safety of consumables and the impossibility of investing in new technological medical equipment,” he said.In essence, he said, “HIO’s sloppiness condemns private hospitals to becoming extinct, depriving them of their comparative advantage… quality.”That the subsidy to state hospitals will not go beyond the first five years into the implementation of Gesy, was also a lie, Soteriou said, as the law does not rule out the possibility of an extension of that period. This, he said, would be against the principle of healthy competition and a serious counter incentive for the improvement of state hospitals.He also said that the way Gesy was planned and the corresponding legislation introduce inequalities between healthcare providers, despite the fact the HIO maintains all will be equal.“On the contrary, starting from the first day, there will be an uneven differentiation between hospitals,” he said, as private ones will be required to meet the strict conditions of the legislation under which they were established. “This will not apply to public hospitals that have been implemented in violation of a number of laws and regulations.”He also said that the design of Gesy proceeded without taking into account the views, suggestions and concerns of private hospitals.  What was calculated, he said, was “hypothetical data from private hospitals rather than the actual ones.”Pasin, which said it would not back Gesy in recent weeks, said it was still waiting for the HIO to submit data requested by its members concerning the assurance of quality healthcare to their patients.The group said they would like to see a health scheme, but one that would ensure quality of healthcare and viability of hospital units.You May LikeVikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 min and see why everyone is addicted!Vikings: Free Online GameUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Remand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)UndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
