Rail passengers plan to fund review into Government handling of Southern railway

first_imgA rail passenger group is set to fund a legal review of the Government’s handling of the Southern rail franchise after months of disruption to services.The Association of British Commuters announced it will work to fund a Judicial Review into the Department of Transport, with “real determination to hold the Government to account”.Services on the network have been disrupted for months because of a long-running dispute over the role of conductors as well as high levels of staff sickness.The Rail, Maritime and Transport union is holding a 48-hour strike on Wednesday and Thursday this week, which will cause fresh travel misery. The Association of British Commuters,  set up earlier this year because of the Southern problems, said it will be working closely with Devonshires solicitors to compile evidence of people losing their jobs because of cancelled trains, as well as the disruption to home and family during the chaos.An appeal was launched to raise money to fund the legal action.A statement said: “This is more than a legal crowdfunder – it is a crowd action – one that will require the involvement of commuters every step of the way.”We want to hear your stories in more depth and make sure you are listened to, not only by the press but by the High Court.”The crowdfunder aims to reach a target of £25,000 within the next 30 days.”With extremely generous rates from our legal firm and barrister, we at the Association of British Commuters will be doing much of the legwork ourselves, in order to make sure the money donated goes as far as possible.”Time is short and the situation is urgent – there is a strict time limit on launching Judicial Review claims – we need to act now and we need to act fast.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings.center_img Group spokeswoman Summer Dean said: “We are taking this action in the name of every rail user who has suffered at the hands of Southern Rail.”We believe that the Government has been very quiet during this crisis and we are now ready to use the law to demand answers.”We need to question the fairness and legality of decisions of a Government who, in this particular case, seem more concerned with serving the interests of a private company whose first priority is their shareholders, rather than passengers who are paying for a service that they are not receiving.”Emily Yates, campaign coordinator, added: “With tens of thousands of commuters affected, we have had an incredible response from people offering their skills and resources to fight this ongoing injustice.”The Government announced last week it was setting up a £20 million fund aimed at resolving delays on Southern.Mick Cash, general secretary of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union, said: “The strike action goes ahead as planned.”RMT remains available for serious talks but Govia Thameslink Railway clearly has no interest in resolving the dispute and it is also clear that the Government are propping them up, financially and politically.”Just a fraction of the £100 million the GTR parent company is hoarding in profits would be enough to keep a guard on the Southern trains, keep the trains safe and resolve the dispute.”last_img read more

Influx of migrants from Venezuela affecting Region 1 says Regional Chairman

Regional Chairman of the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) Region One, Brethnol Ashley addressing a number of stakeholders from both Regions One and Four in relation to the Venezuelan migrant situation.Regional Chairman of the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) Region One, Brethnol Ashley has declared that the most critical issue affecting residents in Region One relates to migrants from Venezuela.He made this declaration while addressing the specially arranged meeting with a number of agencies and programme heads from Region One after a one day visit to his Region by the Regional Executive Officer (REO) of Region Four, Pauline Lucas.The visit by Lucas and her team was geared towards establishing a collaboration between the two regions geared at addressing a number of concerns as a result of the increased influx of Venezuelans.According to a statement issued by the Region 4 REO’s public relations department, the Regional Chairman stressed that his region severely lacks human resources adding that there continues to be a shortage of drugs and medical supplies as a result of the increased number of Venezuelans seeking medical and other attention.Ashley reiterated to the visiting team his thanks and gratitude noting that whatever assistance that can be given would be welcome.He said that taking into account the increased challenges and difficulties that officials within his region are forced to confront, the support being offered by RDC Region Four’s health sector is greatly appreciated.The Region 1 RDC Chair also appealed to the Government to step up their security patrolling and presence at the borders stating that of recent there have been an increased number of threats.“We have heard that there is a plan to hijack the ferry and this resulted in the ferry having to be escorted into here a few weeks ago because there were reports that the Sindicatos were planning an attack,” the Regional Chairman stressed.He disclosed that the number of migrants continues to increase stating the need for a holistic response by the government of Guyana so as to alleviate a number of fears and concerns.Ashley said figures presented to him just before the meeting indicates that there continues to be an increase in the number of Venezuelan migrants, while stressing that there is an urgent need for government to take appropriate action to lend valuable support, while at the same time protecting the interests of Guyanese.“For White Water they are 640, in the community of Imberto there is 74, there is also a new community under the radar called Black Water Barima with 40, Khan Hill has 101, Kamwatta has 65 while Yarakita has 64 so the numbers tells its own story that indeed there is an increase,” Ashley said.The Regional Chairman disclosed that several of the Venezuelans are also involved in the sale of illegal fuel which he said has fuel added concerns from the business community within the Coomaka area.He disclosed that the Coomacka community being a primary business hub certainly will pose a number of problems. He stated that the RDC had constructed a living quarters for several of the migrants and with several activities taking place there, he foresees various challenges that will pose danger for not only the migrants but residents as well.He revealed that there are serious sanitation related issues pointing out that several residents have complained about the Venezuelan migrants defecating in and around the community.This, the Regional Chairman declared poses great challenges to several business owners who would see the migrants committing these acts openly. Further, he said that there is a serious and grave health concern as several of the migrants who are desperate for food have been seen raiding garbage bins in search for same.With the economic crisis in Venezuela worsening, more and more of its citizens are feeling the country on a daily basis.

Samsung to reveal Androidcontrolled Smart TVs at CES

first_imgCES is just around the corner, and that means it’s time for the product teases to begin. Up this morning is Samsung, and based on the video they’ve uploaded to their official YouTube channel it’s looking like they might show off some Android-controlled Smart TVs at the big bash in Las Vegas.Now, all we’ve got to go by is the fact that the family in the clip is holding devices that look a lot more like the size and shape of a Samsung smartphone than a remote. The kids are obviously playing with an iPad or Galaxy Tab 10.1 — it’s hard to tell which it is at that distance, but if Samsung’s lawyers can’t sort it out…So with a couch full of Android devices and a Samsung TV hanging in front of them but out of frame, does this mean that Samsung is going to move away from its own Smart TV platform and adopt Google TV? Not necessarily. Samsung has said before that it’s still talking with Google and that devices might arrive in 2012, but they’re quite happy with their in-house platform — which they recently reported crossed the 2 million app download barrier.While Logitech and Google both offer Android remote apps for Google TV devices, the presence of phones in the teaser isn’t a smoking gun. Sony offers an Android remote control app for many of its devices that don’t run Google TV, like the Sony Network Media Players and networked Blu-Ray players. The experience isn’t great, and on my own SMP-N100 I’d much rather use the IR remote for everything except entering text into the search field.If Samsung’s going to tease tablet or phone control, it better be awesome. Of course, it’s also possible these folks are just streaming a video from their phones to the TV. We’ll just have to wait a few more weeks to confirm what Samsung has up its sleeve.via TechCrunchlast_img read more

La PS Vita passée au crible

first_imgLa PS Vita passée au cribleAvec la sortie de la PS Vita au Japon, un petit zoom sur la nouvelle console portable de Sony s’imposait. Au rendez-vous: performances et nouvelles façons de jouer.La PS Vita est une bête de course qui affiche 182 x 18,6 x 83,5 mm de dimension. Elle embarque un processeur ARM CortexTM-A9 quadricœur cadencé à 2GHz et un processeur graphique SGX543MP4+ (ok, le nom ne vous dit rien…). Ceci, derrière un écran tactile OLED de 5 pouces (16:9) avec 16 millions de couleurs. À lire aussiDyslexie : les jeux vidéo, une méthode efficace pour aider les dyslexiques ?Mais la grande nouveauté est le pavé tactile arrière avec sa surface capacitive. Oui, le dos de la console permettra des actions de jeu! Plutôt ingénieux comme idée. Reste à savoir si les jeux en tireront pleinement les capacités. Pour le reste, plus classique, la PS Vita intègre un APN avant et arrière, une reconnaissance des mouvements gyroscopique du type SIXAXIS ainsi qu’une boussole électronique de 3 axes, un GPS, le Bluetooth 2.1, la prise en charge Wi-Fi (un modèle 3G est disponible), un port de cartouche de jeux (format New Game Media) et un autre pour la mémoire. Il est annoncé que la console atteindra entre 3 et 5 heures d’autonomie pour le jeu.En plus des nouvelles touches du pavé arrière, la PS Vita inclue également la Réalité augmentée (grâce à ses deux caméras), ce qui laisse à penser que certains jeux l’utiliseront, comme c’est déjà le cas pour Everybody’s Golf, où vous modifiez le fond du jeu pour golfer en direct de votre salon. Un nouveau stick analogique fait son apparition (il y en a donc 2) ce qui rendra surement le jeu plus agréable que sur la petite sœur, la PSP. Sony a présenté Near, une application permettant de partager vos infos sur vos jeux avec d’autres utilisateurs (un passant qui vous croise dans la rue par exemple…) et la possibilité d’effectuer des commandes vocales pour certaines actions dans des jeux. Ce n’est pas fini! Toujours grâce au pavé arrière, il sera possible de défier, avec votre Vita,un pote, qui lui, joue sur sa PS3 (il faut que le jeu soit compatible). Un vrai plus qui fait de la PS Vita un véritale gage de nouveautés.Il ne manque plus qu’une chose: sa sortie en France !Le 20 décembre 2011 à 10:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Top 7 Best MarioStyle Games on Roblox

first_img Roblox 101: How To Make Actual Money In The GameRoblox 101: How To Make Your First Game Stay on target Out of the thousands of games (and perhaps even hundreds of thousands at this point) on Roblox, there is bound to be something that would appeal to just about everybody. Whether you want to explore a massive, modern city while driving a sports car, fight evil monsters, or rescue civilians that are drowning in a hurricane, there is a game for you on Roblox.But sometimes you want to play something a bit more familiar. As Nintendo’s chief mascot and the de facto face of the entire video game industry for about three decades, Mario is absolutely iconic. The trouble though is that Mario games only officially appear on Nintendo systems like the Switch, Wii U, and 3DS. It was a huge deal when Mario ran onto mobile. You can’t actually play Mario games on the Xbox, PC, or PlayStation. And while that is still the case, the budding Roblox development community have managed to come up with a few workarounds.Below we’ve got our list of the seven best games that either feature Mario and his friends directly or are as close to what you’d expect from a modern Mario game on a Nintendo platform. These are the best Mario games on Roblox!7. Paper Mario Roleplay by DogonPaper Mario Roleplay isn’t a bad game, but we’ve got it at the bottom of our list because it doesn’t really feature any of the classic Mario-style platforming that most Mario fans are after. Instead, you’ll spend your time living out the life of characters in the Mario universe. It’s a neat idea that attracts a lot of players, but it’s not really like a Mario game.6. Angry Birds Obby by QuoyAs one of only two games on this list that aren’t actually about Mario, you might be wondering why Angry Birds Obby is included. But once you see its whimsical style, similar platforming-focused gameplay, and colorful environments it should be pretty clear. While this may not be called a Mario game, it shares the same inspiration and will appeal to fans of the titular Italian plumber.5. Mario Tycoon by SuperDuperLogarThis one’s another oddity that scratches itches you may not even realize that you have. If you’re the type of person that loves everything about Mario, you very well may find a lot to enjoy in Mario Tycoon. Instead of being an Obby, which are a dime a dozen on Roblox, this one lets you build your very own Mushroom Kingdom-style empire from within the confines of the Super Mario universe.4. The Super Mario Multiverse Roleplay by bighead5852Now imagine that you could take the neat elements of Paper Mario Roleplay, our #7 entry on this list, and expand that far beyond the limitations of just the Paper Mario setting. That’s basically what you get with The Super Mario Multiverse Roleplay. It has a whole cast of characters across decades of Mario games and is one of the most elaborate and engaging ways to interact with the Mushroom Kingdom this side of Super Mario Odyssey.3. Escape Peach’s Castle Obby by Unknown UserNow we’re getting into the real meat of this list. Escape Peach’s Castle Obby is an adventure for you and your Roblox friends that takes you through the dangerous realm of Peach’s castle while it’s under attack by Bowser and his evil minions. We probably won’t ever get an actual Mario game with this sort of level, so this is a bit of fantasy fulfillment for the hardcore Mario fans out there.2. Mega Fun Obby by BloxtunWith over 175 million plays in the eight years it’s been live, hundreds of levels, and thousands of players in the game at all hours of the day, Mega Fun Obby is absolutely one of the very best Mario-style games in Roblox. It’s so good there’s even a sequel that just came out a few months ago! Fans of Mario’s latest 3D platforming games such as Super Mario Odyssey will have a ton of fun completing challenging levels that take you far beyond the realms of Nintendo’s iconic franchise.1. Mario Adventure Obby by AurarusThis is it. Amidst the hundreds of Mario Obby games on Roblox, most of which sit unplayed and forgotten, Mario Adventure Obby is definitely the best and it keeps getting more and more popular. It’s over nine years old at this point and has been played over seven million times, but you’ll still find hundreds of players exploring its worlds and jumping across its levels like it’s brand new even today.If you’re hungry for more Roblox though, then don’t fret. We’ve got a ton of resources about the ever-evolving world of Roblox. From this break down about Roblox and this Roblox information dump for parents, to this list of the best Roblox racing games, you don’t have to wander far for more Roblox coverage.—David Jagneaux is a tech and gaming journalist with bylines on several prominent media publications such as IGN, Polygon, Playboy, UploadVR, Motherboard, Gamecrate, VICE, GamesMaster Magazine, and many others. He is also the author of The Ultimate Roblox Book, a recently released book for anyone interested in learning more about Roblox and how to get started with building their own worlds. It’s being published by Adams Media and is now available for purchase on Amazon right here, as well as from Barnes & Noble, Walmart, and other select retailers.last_img read more

Harvard Lampoon Skewers National Geographic Then Gives Them Free Ad

first_imgThe Harvard Lampoon—the humor magazine known for its famous alumni (Conan O’Brien, John Updike et al) and occasional full-on parodies of national magazines—has completed work on its latest victim: National Geographic.With explicit content befitting of a Friars Club Roast, the Lampoon is set to publish a version of National Geographic featuring Paris Hilton—its honorary 2008 member—on the cover.The 100-page issue, hitting newsstands on April 1, carries just 10 ad pages, including a full-page congratulatory ad for National Geographic that reads: “Some people mock the world… Others explore it.” The magazine, published five times per year, is distributed free to 15,000 Harvard undergraduates and alumni and 30,000 subscribers. According to a Lampoon spokesperson, the parody’s print run has more doubled from approximately 100,000 in 2005 (for the Lampoon’s Premiere parody) to 225,000 for the National Geographic spoof.last_img read more

What Googles Android Q dark mode means for all your other apps

first_imgGoogle has a dark side. James Martin/CNET The next version of Google’s mobile software, called Android Q, is going to get a dark mode — officially called dark theme — that turns your white screen to black and black text white, helping make bright screens easier on the eye at night. Dark mode is already popular in apps, and by embracing it as an optional theme you can turn on and off at the system level, it can potentially act as a master switch for your other dark mode apps. That’s because when you turn on dark theme in the next version of Android, it isn’t just the home screen and app drawer that goes dark. Apps, like the calendar, will also fade to black when you toggle into the mode. In addition, developers can start triggering Google’s dark theme in their own apps if they’d like. “Everyone can relate to being in a room where the lights are turned down and you’ve got this white screen blinding you. And this idea of just being able to push a button and have it be easier to read,” said Sameer Samat, Google’s VP of product management for Android and Play, during an interview last week at Google I/O. When you turn on the theme, app makers that don’t have a dedicated dark mode can get one from Google by letting Android Q invert the black and whites to take advantage of an automatic dark theme they don’t have to program on their own.  Comments 34 Photos 2 4:54 Android 10 (Android Q) Google App-makers that do have a dedicated dark mode can also hitch to Google’s wagon so that turning on Android Q’s dark theme will also turn on their own dark mode. That saves you from having to turn on Dark Theme in Android Q and then going into individual apps to turn on their own dark modes. The idea is that you press one button to do it all.But there’s one more benefit, too: battery savings.”There are few things that get you battery savings for ‘free,'” Samat said. “Lighting up fewer OLED pixels will get you farther in the day.”Google says that while it will keep tuning its dark theme settings, dark theme won’t replace your bright white daytime screen mode any time soon, especially when bright white screens are still the easiest to read outdoors in sunlight.Requests for an Android dark mode began appearing in user requests with Android 8.0 Oreo, Samat said, referring to Google’s phone OS from 2017.  Android 10 beta’s best new tricks from Google I/O 2019center_img Share your voice Tags Phones Now playing: Watch this: “Originally, we just through it was super geeky folks like ourselves who wanted it. The data we’re seeing is much more broad based than that,” said Samat.In Android Q, you can trigger dark theme two different ways: by pressing the button for battery-saving mode from the slide-down  quick control menu, or by turning it on in the display settings.Originally published May 12 at 4 a.m. PT.

Somebody out there wants to hurt us Arson in Boston Chicago rattles

Share This! Share This! Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,BOSTON (RNS) — A rash of fires that police say were intentionally set at Jewish community centers in Chicago and around Boston last week has left Jewish groups feeling vulnerable.At the Chabad Center for Jewish Life in Arlington, Mass., where Rabbi Avi Bukiet and his family live about 20 minutes outside of Boston, firefighters were called to put out a shingle fire May 11.Then they were called there again for another fire May 16.Then, about an hour later that day, firefighters responded to a nearby fire at the Chabad Jewish Center in Needham, where Rabbi Mendy Krinsky lives with his family about 30 minutes outside of Boston.Authorities say all three Boston-area fires were deliberately set and are being investigated as potential hate crimes.RELATED: For houses of worship, interfaith collaboration is the future of security Instagram apostasy stirs controversy over Christian ‘influencers’ August 30, 2019 Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,About the authorView All Posts As Amazon burns, Vatican prepares for summit on region’s faith and sustainabilit … August 30, 2019 By: Aysha Khan ayshabkhan Share This!

Hate can’t be reasoned with. Hate just needs to be eradicated. A little bit of light dispels a lot of darkness. Please take this opportunity to help us end this darkness. Do a mitzvah today to bring more light into this world!”No one was injured, and law enforcement officials said they have not determined whether the fires in the two Boston-area towns are connected. Nor have they said whether the incidents were linked to a fire that damaged the Diyanet Mosque in New Haven, Conn., the same week, which police also say was intentionally set.“People are scared but are refusing to be intimidated in any manner,” said the Anti-Defamation League’s New England regional director, Robert Trestan. “An attack on one synagogue is an attack on the entire Jewish community. It’s not just one building.”An attack on a rabbi’s home is particularly alarming, he said.“People lived there,” Trestan said. “It’s not like a synagogue, where it’s closed at night and no one’s there. It’s a reminder that people don’t just pray in a large, established building. And when you try to start a fire at an institution like this, you’re also trying to burn someone’s house down.”Days later, in Chicago, police found Molotov cocktails outside a synagogue and an adjacent Jewish community center over the weekend. Authorities say two attempts were made Saturday night to ignite the Anshe Sholom B’nai Israel Congregation and that windows of cars parked outside the synagogue and another nearby synagogue were smashed.Chicago police released a photo of a man they are trying to identify in relation to the attempted arson on May 19, 2019, at Anshe Sholom B’nai Israel Congregation in Chicago. Photo courtesy of Chicago Police Department“The willful effort to attack a house of worship, to try to burn it down, is a chilling reminder, at a time of rising anti-Semitism in the United States, of the vulnerability of synagogues and other Jewish institutions,” said Laurence Bolotin, director of the American Jewish Committee’s Chicago branch.“While thankfully the attacks did not cause any injuries or damage, this incident is yet another disturbing reminder of the recent escalation in attacks against Jews and Jewish institutions,” David Goldenberg, Midwest regional director for the Anti-Defamation League, said in a statement.Goldenberg pointed to the Boston fires and recent shootings at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh and the Chabad of Poway near San Diego, which left a combined 12 worshippers dead.In Massachusetts, the ADL, the local chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the state fire marshal have offered a combined $21,000 reward for tips leading to the arsonist’s conviction.“This is something which has not just shook (my wife) Luna and myself to the core, but it has shocked the entire community, and they’re sharing that with us,” Avi Bukiet said in a news conference Friday (May 17). “What has gone on … it has targeted not just a Jewish center, it has targeted our personal family and we are hurting because of this.”But Boston’s Jewish community leaders emphasized that the attacks have not broken their community’s spirits and that the chabads’ doors will remain open to all.“We have committed our lives to spreading the universal message of light and love,” Luna Bukiet said. “This will not deter us. If anything, we will double down to bring more goodness into the world and create a better world for all of our children.”Two weeks ago, the Chabad Jewish Center in Needham held a Shabbat service in response to the shooting at the Chabad of Poway. “Our response to cold-blooded, baseless, relentless hatred must be pure, unconditional love and acts of kindness,” the center posted on Facebook. “Today more than ever we must respond to darkness with unyielding light. He brought death to Shul. Let us bring life to Shul!”Earlier this month, video footage also surfaced showing two separate incidents in which Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn were being assaulted and harassed on the streets.

Whats New In 2018 Heres A Brief Tour Of State Laws Now

first_img Share Across the country, U.S. residents have awakened to a new year, new resolutions — and a whole host of new rules to keep track of. Hundreds of new state laws took effect across the country Monday, and they’re sure to reshape the political and legal landscape in the coming months.They run a vast gamut — from recreational marijuana and paid leave time, to traveling barbers and exotic pets — so you’ll have to forgive us if we pick just a few to focus on. Here is a glimpse of some notable new laws, in brief.A customer buys marijuana at Harborside dispensary in Oakland, Calif., on Monday.Marijuana in CaliforniaThe Golden State has joined a small but growing list of states to legalize recreational marijuana use. As of 6 a.m. local time Monday, licensed retailers were legally allowed to begin selling the substance to customers age 21 and up.And they didn’t lack for customers.The San Francisco Chronicle describes long lines and cheering visitors at the handful of dispensaries with state and local licenses to sell marijuana Monday:“Some people stayed up all night to get a spot in line. Others went to bed early to get there before 6 a.m.“Anthony Moraga, 28, drove from Merced on Sunday so he could be in line at 4 a.m. — the first customer in line at Berkeley Patients Group. But he was the second to make a purchase. The store had selected longtime activists Conrad and Norris to be first.”The day comes more than a year after California voters passed Proposition 64, which mostly decriminalized marijuana there. Previously, the state had only allowed sale and possession of the substance for medicinal use.Still, even with weed legalized, it bears its fair share of regulations. The state has set up a specific agency, the Bureau of Cannabis Control, to grant and monitor licenses to retailers. Adults over 21 can only possess a maximum of one ounce of bud and up to eight grams of concentrates, and they cannot smoke in vehicles or public places.And then there are the state taxes that commercial buyers must pay — and that authorities believe will offer a windfall for state coffers. As NPR’s Ina Jaffe reports, recreational marijuana is expected to bring in up to $500 million in the first year alone, and some estimates place the eventual revenue as high as $1 billion a year.Nevertheless, marijuana remains illegal under federal law — and as such, Border Patrol will continue to seize the substance at checkpoints.In the workplaceWashington on Monday became the seventh state — in addition to Washington, D.C. — to require employers to offer paid sick leave to their workers. Rhode Island is set to become the eighth to do so later this year, when its own law takes effect in July.Meanwhile, New York has joined the small handful of states that require employers to provide paid family leave benefits. There, as NBC reports, employees will eventually be entitled to up to 12 weeks a year once the law takes full effect.And in Nevada, employers are now required to offer up to 160 hours of leave per 12-month period to workers who have been — or whose family members have been — victims of domestic violence.Eighteen states are also raising their minimum wage this year. (See a breakdown from NPR’s Emily Sullivan for the full list.)The federal minimum wage, however, is set to remain steady at $7.25 per hour. And, as Sullivan points out, the five states that have the highest percentages of hourly workers earning the federal minimum or below have no plans for a wage hike this year. In the national conversationTennessee is implementing a measure granting broad free speech rights to speakers on higher education campuses, wading into a debate that has flared into national focus lately. The law marks an implicit response to the protests that have surrounded — and even derailed — recent speaking engagements by incendiary figures such as Ann Coulter and Milo Yiannopoulos, among others.Several states are making changes at the ballot box. Iowa and West Virginia both adopted measures that require voters to show an accepted form of ID, though the former’s law won’t be fully phased in until 2019. Texas, which had a similar law from 2014 tossed earlier this year by a federal judge, is adopting a revised version of the measure — which allows people to cast a ballot without ID, but only if they swear they could not reasonably obtain one in time.Elsewhere, multiple states are changing their rules regarding how gender is recorded in official documents. In Illinois, for instance, transgender and intersex people are allowed to change the designation on their birth certificates, provided they do so with the approval of a medical professional. And in California, residents are no longer required to choose between either “male” or “female” on their ID documents.At a ceremony last May, former President Obama points out features of his proposed presidential center, which is scheduled to be built in Chicago. It is not the only honor that awaits the former president in the state he served as a senator: He’s also getting a day designated in his honor.A potpourri of odds and endsNot every new state law bears weight of national import. In fact, the vast majority are of a more, well, specialized nature. That said, here’s a little selection of some that stand out anyway.In South Carolina, for example, people hoping to buy a Siberian tiger to celebrate the new year are likely to be disappointed: As of Jan. 1, it is illegal in the state for typical residents — that is, if you’re not a zoo — to buy or own exotic animals for pets. That’s right, no more apes, lions or polar bears to stalk your residence in captive splendor — unless you happen to be one of the estimated 25 South Carolinians who already own such an animal, according to the Myrtle Beach Sun News. The local paper notes that those owners will be grandfathered in, albeit with new restrictions.As the Humane Society pointed out, before the bill’s passage, the state “was one of only five states with virtually no laws regarding private possession of dangerous wild animals.”Illinois has set aside a day in honor of one of its best-known politicians: former President Obama. Henceforth, the state’s former senator will be honored with Barack Obama Day every year on his birthday, Aug. 4. It should be noted, though — if you live in Illinois, don’t expect a day off from work or school, since it is considered a “commemorative date” rather than an official holiday under state law.And then, it’s worth returning to Tennessee for this note: If you’re a barber in the state, you are now legally free to pay house calls. Previously, barbers were only able to do so for clients “who are actually ill”; now, even those with perfect health won’t need to leave their front door to get a good haircut.Of course, as long as this list may be, these laws are but a few of the hundreds newly on the books across the country. It’s best to check in your own state to be sure what new rules, exactly, now apply to you.Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.last_img read more

Foreign hardware could be designed to launch cyber attacks against US companies

first_img Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — A security official at the Department of Homeland Security recently released a statement that confirmed the idea that some foreign-made computer components are actually being designed to make the job of launching a cyber attack against a U.S. company or consumer easier to do. Citation: Foreign hardware could be designed to launch cyber attacks against US companies and consumers (2011, July 11) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-07-foreign-hardware-cyber-companies-consumers.html Homeland Security and spy agency to work together © 2010 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright.

While no one at the Department of Homeland Security has been willing to give information about what countries or specific components are in question, or by what methods these components could have been made in order to make cyber attacks easier the department did confirm that this has happened in the past. Greg Schaffer, the Acting Deputy Undersecretary National Protection and Programs Director said, “I am aware of instances where that has happened.” This comment, which confirms that the US government is currently aware of the issue, though the admission only came after a questioning from Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a republican from Utah, during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing.How could an attack like this happen? In one scenario a device could be tampered with prior to its distribution in order to carry, or work as a Trojan Horse, and allow other malicious software to make its way onto the hardware unfettered. Previously the FBI has been investigating a case where counterfeit versions of Cisco routers were being sold to government agencies. These attacks can be potentially devastating because it can go unnoticed for many months or years while the code silently listens for information such a billing information or trade secrets. While many nations are involved in the supply chain of computer hardware no specific nation has been accused or mentioned as a part of this problem.last_img read more

Microsoft Garage releases Outings travel discovery app

first_imgMicrosoft Garage releases Outings travel discovery app by Martin Brinkmann on December 11, 2017 in Apple, Companies, Google Android – Last Update: January 04, 2018 – No commentsMicrosoft Garage released Outings a new travel discovery application for Google Android and Apple iOS devices recently.Outings: Discover Beautiful Places serves two main purposes: first, as a travel discovery app to explore destinations, and second, as a companion app when you are traveling to get suggestions on what to do or visit at a specific location you are visiting.You can use the application as a guest, or sign in with a Facebook or Google account to save stories and places. It is interesting that Outings does not support Microsoft Accounts at this time.The application asks you to pick topics that you are interested in on first run. Topics include “night sky”, “landscapes”, “history and culture”, or “caves”, and you are asked to pick at least five, but can pick all of them if you like.Outings uses these topics as the base for suggestions that it presents to you when you run the app.The app’s frontpage displays the three entry points discover, nearby, and browse that you may switch between.Discover lists sights based on the topics you selected. The app focuses on the United States, Canada and Mexico right now, but will highlight sights from all over those countries based on the topics that you selected.It displays one place at a time featuring a stock image, a short title and description, and a link to a website that offers additional information. The app indicates if multiple images are available with an icon. You can tap on it to browse the available photos.If you are signed in, you can save the place, flag it as “been there”. A tap on the page displays a map view, and other places or stories in the vicinity.Nearby concentrates on a 50 mile or 200 mile radius around your location. If you are not in the US, Mexico or Canada, you may not get results right now. If you are, you get suggestions based on the topics that you selected during setup.Note that you can manage topics in the application preferences at any time to add or remove some. A minimum of 5 topics is required thogh.Browse finally lets you search by topic or destination. Again, this works only for places in North America, and the app matches what you type automatically with suggestions. You can type a place, e.g. Mexico City or New York, or a topic such as recreation or water activity.Closing WordsOutings is a travel discovery application at its core. While you do get suggestions if you select the nearby option or type a location under browse, its main focus seems to be to show you places all across certain countries based on topics that interest you.This is a stark contrast to Google Trips which focuses on places that you plan to visit in the near future. While you may use Google Trips for discovery purposes as well, it is not the application’s main purpose.Summary12345 Author Rating0 based on 1 votes Software Name OutingsSoftware Category AppsLanding Page https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/garage/profiles/outings/ Advertisementlast_img read more

Personally Speaking I will not stand for this service

first_imgGet the biggest Daily stories by emailSubscribeSee our privacy noticeThank you for subscribingSee our privacy noticeCould not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailI had the misfortune to make the rush hour commute from Stoke-on-Trent to Birmingham on Tuesday. I’m not saying the train was packed, but the only surprise was the guard didn’t have a cattle prod. I stood all the way to Birmingham New Street, wedged by the door between carriages, unfortunate as I was physically unable to avert my gaze as we passed through Wolverhampton. Had I turned my head, I would have been smothered by the voluminous locks of a redhead. This is a shame because I enjoy train travel. It’s a chance to sit and relax, enjoy the English countryside, and listen to elderly women talking about their ‘tubes’. Read MorePersonally Speaking: ‘Ceramics was a our past and it can be our future’ Unlike driving, train travel requires very little concentration. It’s a great place to lose oneself in one’s thoughts, brought back to the real world only by a fellow passenger falling into you with a cup of tea on the way back from the buffet. From the accounts of those who commute from Stoke-on-Trent to Birmingham, I believe what I experienced is par for the course. Passengers pay £300 a month for the privilege of standing in a doorway being breathed on by a middle manager from Droitwich. The answer would appear simple – stick another couple of carriages on. Yet this never happens. Commuters are told that platforms are too short, that rolling stock is unavailable, or that the driver is still awaiting their long vehicle licence. Of course, there is then the added issue of first class, a half empty carriage peopled solely by those who enjoy paying double for a cup of tea and a lamp. In the old days, there used to be first, second, and third class. This was felt to be absurd. And so now we just have first and third. Because people have no choice but to tolerate these conditions – driving from Stoke-on-Trent to Birmingham at rush hour is only slightly less frustrating than being wrongly imprisoned for murder – the train operators know they can get away with them. Read MorePersonally Speaking: ‘The Stones just keep on rolling’ Unlike South America where civil protest generally entails wanton violence, riots, and the disembowelling of a mayor, here we send a tweet to a disinterested employee picking their nose in a customer service HQ in a dimly lit corner of Bedfordshire. Said employee will then click on the relevant apology before returning to the Tea Break Quickie in the Daily Star. It’s hard to think this was what Robert Stephenson had in mind when he designed his famed Rocket in 1829. OK, he didn’t stick a roof on the carriage but at least everyone was sat down. To my mind, it’s time we reclaimed our railways. While everyone moaned about British Rail, and the food reminded many of small armaments dug up from the Second World War, it had a certain charm. OK, the seats were dusty, everything smelt of diesel, and occasionally the locomotive left the track, but at least we knew some fatcat wasn’t lining their pockets at our expense. Some see renationalisation as a step backwards, but in fact it might not be a step back far enough. Read MorePersonally Speaking: ‘Inspired by lifesavers? Now retrain to be one’ In the Lake District, a vintage train operator has stepped in to provide rail services from the mainline Oxenholme station down the branch to Windermere after Northern Rail cancelled the service amid a timetable fiasco. A 40-year-old diesel engine and carriages now carries passengers free of charge on the 10-mile journey, with the cost covered by the Department of Transport. I cannot praise this system highly enough, to the extent that I wonder if it something similar might not be recreated on the Stoke-on-Trent to Birmingham line. Fire up the boiler and full steam ahead.last_img read more

New Carestream RadiographyFluoroscopy Systems Now Available Worldwide

first_img Carestream DRX-Excel Plus image courtesy of Carestream HealthNovember 19, 2015 — Carestream’s Carestream DRX-Excel and Carestream DRX-Excel Plus radiography/fluoroscopy (R/F) systems are now shipping to countries across the globe.These systems can enhance workflow and perform contrast exams using fluoroscopy that can be associated with a radiography image, in addition to specialized contrast procedures that record both fluoroscopy and radiography sequences and interventional procedures.The DRX-Excel systems are configured with a table and an overhead tube. An optional integrated flat panel detector produces high-resolution images for general radiography as well as fluoroscopic sequences. The DRX-Excel platform also is available as a conventional R/F system that uses either computed radiography (CR) cassettes or DRX-1 detectors with an image intensifier. Both DRX-Excel systems offer a source-to-image detector distance of 180 cm, an ergonomic design and the ability to select an image intensifier for fluoroscopy or use the optional flat panel detector. The DRX-Excel Plus has an elevating table that tilts for fluoroscopy exams and can be lowered or raised to provide flexible, comfortable imaging for patients. Table weight capacity is 584 pounds. The DRX-Excel has a fixed table with a weight limit of up to 440 pounds and has the tilt capability for fluoroscopy exams.Both systems feature productivity-enhancing capabilities including a positioning pedal that allows the operator to have their hands free — helpful for interventional exams — and a remote control that can move the table from anywhere in the room.Other options include: integration of a Carestream DRX detector; four-way float top table movement; and ability to stitch multiple images together for long-length exams.Carestream enables its DRX detector to be shared with any of its DRX portfolio of imaging systems including DRX mobile or room-based radiography systems as well as R/F systems.In the United States, only the DRX-Excel Plus model will be available. Both systems will be available in Europe, Asia, Latin America and other countries. For more information: www.carestream.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Contrast Media | August 05, 2019 Bracco Receives FDA Approval for Varibar Thin Liquid for Oral Suspension Bracco Diagnostics Inc. announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Varibar Thin Liquid (barium… read more Related Content News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more Technology | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 Shimadzu Medical Systems Receives FDA 510(k) for FluoroSpeed X1 RF System Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corp., announced they have received U.S. Food and Drug… read more News | Medical 3-D Printing | August 08, 2019 RSNA and ACR to Collaborate on Landmark Medical 3D Printing Registry The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) will launch a new medical… read more Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Walkaround AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:25Loaded: 11.42%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:25 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Another bug in Windows 10 October update that can cause data loss

first_imgEarlier this month, the Windows 10 October update had problems with files being deleted off users’ computers. After which Microsoft had to pause the mass rollout of Windows 10 update for October. After the issue was reported, Microsoft took steps, did testing with the Windows Insider community for finding the reasons and fixing this bug. But now there is another bug which can cause you to lose your files. Many people having installed the Windows 10 October update have reported an issue where ZIP operations are not working as intended. Windows fails to notify as to which files should be overwritten. On unzipping files to a folder, if other copies of those files already exist in that folder, Windows 10 usually asks whether those existing copies should be overwritten. This does not happen anymore after the update and Windows just overwrites the files. The user is not even informed that the files are overwritten. Accidental overwrites are highly likely if the user doesn’t get any prompt or information. There can be situations where a modified file, for example, is overwritten with something original from the ZIP file. However, this happens only with the built-in Windows file manager. On using a third party tool to work with compressed files, however, this bug does not happen. Wazhai, a Reddit user sums up the issue nicely: “The issue is that in 1809, overwriting files by extracting from an archive using File Explorer doesn’t result in an overwrite prompt dialogue and also doesn’t replace any files at all; it just fails silently. There are also some reports that it did overwrite items, but did so silently without asking.” There is also another scenario but not widely reported where the file extraction seems to happen, but no files are updated. This bug was discussed on Reddit over the weekend and can be read on a Reddit thread, visit their website.
