Chris Gayle seems to be getting better with age, says Jason Holder

first_imgWest Indies skipper Jason Holder was all praise for Chris Gayle, whose titanic century was not enough to take the team home against England in the fourth one day international in Grenada on Wednesday.Chris Gayle continued with his sensational form as he smashed his second hundred in three innings. Gayle blasted 162 off just 97 balls aat the National Cricket Stadium in St George’s, Grenada. But his blazing knock was not enough as West Indies were bowled out for 389 in 48 overs, falling short of the target by 29 runs.Gayle, who will retire from ODIs after the World Cup in England and Wales, hit 14 sixes to take his tally of sixes to 305 in ODIs and 506 in international cricket.West Indies captain Jason Holder said his team’s batting attitude had been “not to die wondering”.”We knew what run rate we had to keep up with and it was just a matter for us to just keep going and be fearless,” he said, paying tribute to 39-year-old Gayle.Gayle also completed 10,000 runs in ODIs and became only the second West Indian after Brian Lara (10,405 runs) to achieve the milestone.Gayle (10,074 runs) became the 14th cricketer to achieve the feat after Sachin Tendulkar (18,426), Kumar Sangakkara (14,234), Ricky Ponting (13,704), Sanath Jayasuriya (13,430), Mahela Jayawardene (12,650), Inzamam-ul-Haq (11,739), Jacques Kallis (11,579), Sourav Ganguly (11,363), Rahul Dravid (10,889), Virat Kohli (10,533), MS Dhoni (10,415), Lara (10,405) and Tillakaratne Dilshan (10,290).”To get 10,000 runs in any format of cricket is a great achievement. It’s unfortunate he has announced his retirement [because] he seems to be getting better with age,” Holder added.advertisementEngland’s middle-order batsman Jos Buttler hit a career-best 150 while skipper Eoin Morgan smashed 103 to power their team to 418 for 6. Buttler sensational knock was laced with 12 sixes, making him the first batsman from England to hit 12 sixes in an ODI innings.Buttler, was named man-of-the-match, was completely in awe of Gayle.”It just goes to show, no matter who’s favourites, on any given day there will be unbelievable games of cricket, and if Chris Gayle is in the opposition, you can lose those games,” Buttler told Sky Sports.”I’ve probably never seen anyone hit sixes as easy as he can. He’s a legend of the game.”The fifth and final match of the series will be played on Saturday in St Lucia, before the two teams face-off in a three-match Twenty20 International series.Also Watch:last_img read more

Security Council ends UN mission monitoring EritreaEthiopia border

The Security Council today voted unanimously to terminate the United Nations Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE), after restrictions placed on the peacekeeping operation by the latter country undermined its ability to carry out its mandate. The 15-member body emphasized that the termination of UNMEE, effective tomorrow, is without prejudice to the obligations of the two countries under the Algiers Agreement, the 2000 accord which ended their border war. The UN decided in February to temporarily move its personnel and equipment out of Eritrea after the country cut off fuel supplies to UNMEE, paralyzing the operation on that side of the border with Ethiopia. In the resolution adopted today, the Council demanded that the two Horn of Africa neighbours “comply fully with their obligations under the Algiers Agreements, show maximum restraint and refrain from any threat or use of force against each other, while avoiding provocative military activities.” The Council requested Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to further explore with Ethiopia and Eritrea the possibility of a UN presence in those two countries, in the context of the maintenance of international peace and security. “The Council has taken this decision after both parties rejected options for a possible follow-on presence put before them by the Secretary-General at the request of the Security Council,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson said in a statement issued following the Council’s action. While the Secretary-General regrets this decision by the parties, he hopes that they “would be able break the current stalemate and create conditions necessary for the normalization of their relations, which is key to peace and stability in the region,” the statement added. The options presented to the parties were a small military observer mission in Ethiopia, a small political and military liaison office in Ethiopia, or a Special Envoy of the Secretary-General based in New York, as noted by Mr. Ban in a letter to the Council that was made public today. Mr. Ban intends to continue working closely with both parties through his good offices, which remain available. The Acting Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Ethiopia/Eritrea praised the work of the men and women who have served in UNMEE over the past seven and a half years. “The Mission was sent at the request of both countries to keep the peace after a two-year war (1998-2000) claimed at least 70,000 Ethiopian and Eritrean lives. It was a difficult mission in geographically harsh locations, but the men and women who served with UNMEE did not flinch,” said Azouz Ennifar. UNMEE has announced that its military and civilian peacekeepers will begin the formal liquidation of their headquarters in Asmara and Addis Ababa as of midnight Thursday.About 320 military personnel remain on the Ethiopian side, but it is anticipated they will leave by the end of August after four remaining observation sites have been dismantled. The mission currently has about 130 civilian staff in Ethiopia and 250 in Eritrea. 30 July 2008The Security Council today voted unanimously to terminate the United Nations Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE), after restrictions placed on the peacekeeping operation by the latter country undermined its ability to carry out its mandate. read more

After 14 years of displacement Liberians to return home to key areas

Some 100,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) are expected to participate in the return process, which UN officials say will give these citizens the chance to begin a new life and participate in elections scheduled for 2005. Each individual who returns will get a two-month food ration as well as home supplies like blankets, soap, sleeping mats and a family cooking set. Transportation and a small cash grant are also provided. The aid is deliberately structured to avoid creating dependence on outside help, according to Abou Moussa, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Deputy Special Representative for Liberia. “We are gradually moving away from the usual hand-outs that we give at the beginning of any emergency operation in terms of food and what we call non-food items,” he told the UN News Service from the capital, Monrovia. In order to help the returnees improve their long-term economic prospects, the UN and its partners are providing seeds and tools while working to upgrade Liberia’s infrastructure by rehabilitating hospitals and rebuilding schools damaged during the fighting. The counties of Grand Cape Mount, Bomi, Gbarpolu, Margibi, Bong and Rivercess are ready for returns thanks to Liberia’s growing stability. “We can easily say that the guns have been silenced,” said Mr. Moussa. He attributed this to the fact that UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) has received nearly its full complement of 15,000 troops. “The physical presence of the military will secure the environment.” In addition, the progressive return of humanitarian workers “reinforced security,” while the rehabilitation of facilities and distribution of food encouraged displaced people to go back home, he added. Their return is being timed with Liberia’s agricultural cycle. “We don’t want them to lose the planting season,” he noted. Looking to the broader issue of peacekeeping, Mr. Moussa observed that having adequate troop strength is a necessary but not sufficient condition for success. “Providing resources for peacekeeping is not enough,” he said. “Unless we also support other activities which facilitate the return and stability of the population, the dynamism in the economy, we have not completed the assignment.” read more

Newfoundland and Labrador in terrible economic state premier laments

Newfoundland and Labrador in ‘terrible’ economic state, premier laments by Sue Bailey, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 8, 2016 8:13 am MDT Last Updated Mar 8, 2016 at 3:08 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Newfoundland and Labrador Lieutenant Governor Frank Fagan is led into the House of Assembly in St.John’s on Tuesday, March 8, 2016 by sergeant-at-arms Wayne Harnum. Following is Peter Noel, private secretary to Fagan and House Page Raylene Mackey. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Paul Daly ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – Newfoundland and Labrador’s premier made clear Tuesday his province’s precipitous drop from national economic leader to fiscal basket case, as his Liberal government set a grim course with its first throne speech.“It’s terrible,” Premier Dwight Ball said.“There’s no one even close to us when you look at other provinces,” he told reporters outside the legislature. “We’ve never seen this ever before in our history.”Fixing the mess, and an “unprecedented” $2-billion deficit, will start with a budget in April or May, Ball said. He signalled that everything from tax hikes to job losses and spending cuts are on the table.Ball also raised the E word — as in equalization. It was a proud day as Newfoundland and Labrador, powered by oil and mining earnings, became a “have” province for the first time in 2008. It stopped receiving equalization payments that Ball now says would come in handy. The complexities of related requirements, however, mean little help is available so far, he told reporters.“We’re at Ottawa’s door for all the programs that are in place.”The throne speech talks of “decisive actions” in the short, medium and long term to correct course. About one-third of provincial revenues come from offshore oil earnings. The treasury has been drained since Brent crude prices dove from US$115 a barrel in mid-2014 to hover between US$30 and US$40 in recent months.The speech read Tuesday by Lt.-Gov. Frank Fagan says a new approach is needed to avoid successive deficits of around $2 billion.“The choices ahead of us will not be easy,” he read. “Everyone will have to accept some level of sacrifice in the months and years ahead if we are to provide critical services, while restoring accountability and stability to government finances.”The alternative is to borrow ever increasing amounts with higher interest, says the speech.It says net debt would top $23 billion in just five years if the province does nothing. It would have to borrow $15.4 billion by 2020-21 — a move that would be like ringing up more than $7 million every day or almost $300,000 an hour, it says.Provincial Auditor General Terry Paddon said earlier this year that the rate of projected deficit growth is unsustainable in a relatively small province of about 527,000 people. The forecast deficit for 2015-16 of almost $2 billion is more than three times greater than the next highest province when relative economies are compared, he warned.“This level must be reduced.”The throne speech acknowledged that urgency.“Bond rating agencies and major banks are watching the province closely,” Fagan read. “My government is focused on protecting our credit ratings, as we do not want to be paying more for borrowing purposes.”NDP member Lorraine Michael said citizens who are already struggling should not have to pay for a lack of planning when the province ran surpluses over much of the last decade.“We can’t use economic difficulties as an excuse for leaving people behind,” she told the legislature.The throne speech also promises to openly assess the $8.6-billion Muskrat Falls hydro project in Labrador started under the previous Tory government. It was to produce first power next year but has already run over original cost projections and timelines.“This review will analyze the cost, schedule and associated risks of the project and is the kind of due diligence that is long overdue,” Fagan read.As bad as the financial picture looks, the province has seen bleak times before. In 1934, the former British dominion of Newfoundland gave up its self-governing status after 79 years in part because of crippling public debt racked up during the First World War.Follow @suebailey on Twitter. read more

Ohio State womens basketball team full of question marks ahead of NCAA

Ohio State coaches Mark Mitchell (left) and Kevin McGuff (right) watch OSU’s 82-63 loss to Michigan State in the Big Ten tournament. Credit: Kevin Stankiewicz | Asst. Sports EditorNot too long ago, the Ohio State women’s basketball team was a unit with all the answers.OSU had won 11 straight games, the outright Big Ten regular-season title was within its grip and at least a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament was nearly a lock, with a top seed a realistic proposal.Now, just a couple of weeks after those extremely positive outcomes of coach Kevin McGuff’s third season in Columbus seemed inevitable, all of those achievements have been entirely wiped out.With the Buckeyes losing three of their last four games, including an embarrassing 82-63 loss to Michigan State in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament, the one thing OSU needs before the NCAA tournament begins is what it had an abundance of when it last played in Columbus: an answer.OSU doesn’t have an answer as to what seed it will be when the NCAA tournament begins. It doesn’t have an answer as to how it came up empty-handed in the Big Ten regular-season title despite having a one-game lead with two games left to play. And it doesn’t have an answer as to what happened to one of the best offenses in the nation.The Buckeyes, who average 86.7 points per game, the third most in the country, had a season-low 20 points at the half against Michigan State in a game they trailed in by as many as 36 points.After the game, senior guard Cait Craft chalked much of that up to the ineffectiveness of fellow senior guard Ameryst Alston, who was held back by a sprained right wrist and didn’t score, but said there were still concerns about the way the team played as a whole.“Not having Ameryst hurt a little bit, but at the end of the day, we as a team didn’t come ready to play really until the last quarter,” Craft said. “Not having her does hurt, but it shouldn’t have been that detrimental to us. And I think we let that get in the way more than it should have, obviously.”McGuff said he doesn’t know what Alston’s status will be moving forward after the game, noting only the diagnosis of her injury and that he “hopes” she will be able to accelerate through her rehab and be good to go for the NCAA tournament.But missing Alston’s first-team All-Big Ten production was only a steep section of the mountain the Buckeyes were sliding down, not the point of departure from the top.The night before against Rutgers, in which Alston was perfectly healthy until the closing minutes, the Buckeyes only put up 26 points on the scoreboard at the half. They ended up winning the game 73-58 behind sophomore guard Kelsey Mitchell’s tournament-record 43 points, but, especially after losing their previous two games, the concerns were already in the air before the seismic semifinal debacle.A lot of the Buckeyes’ issues in the tournament were inexplicable, such as junior Shayla Cooper, a steady contributor off the bench throughout the year, suddenly being largely absent from the offense.Cooper averaged 13.5 points and 8.4 rebounds per game during the season, but against Rutgers she put up seven points on 2-of-10 shooting, and the next night she had just two points on 1-of-5 shooting through three quarters, including a second period absent from the floor.She ended up finishing off the night strong with 14 points in the garbage-time fourth quarter, hitting all six shot attempts. But Cooper has been one of the Buckeyes’ most valuable players all season long, and the need for her to step up inflated with Alston physically unable to shoot. Instead, she was nowhere to be found.After the Michigan State game, McGuff didn’t have an explanation or assessment for the sorry performance. He simply didn’t have an answer.“It didn’t have anything to do with effort or competitiveness,” McGuff said. “We have to learn from tonight that we’re going to hit some adversity again. I don’t know what it will be. Maybe it will be foul trouble, something. And how we react to it is going to determine everything.”Two weeks ago, OSU was a team that many were pegging as a Final Four contender. It had already beaten Maryland twice — the only two in-conference losses the Terrapins have had since joining the Big Ten — and had lost to powerhouses South Carolina and Notre Dame on the road by a combined 11 points.But now, the Buckeyes are trying to rebuild from the ground up with the NCAA tournament a week and a half away — trying to understand when it all turned around. “That’s the great thing about college basketball, you get a chance to tip it up again here before too long,” McGuff said. “And I think we have a great opportunity ahead of us. We just have to get back to the gym and kind of get back to being who we are.”The Buckeyes will learn their tournament seeding and opponent on Monday, and whether their first-round game will be set for March 18 or 19. read more

2 duals 2 losses OSU wrestlers pick up loss in Ill return

The Ohio State wrestling team went into the weekend looking to salvage the remainder of its season and upset No. 19 Illinois and No. 4 Minnesota. It failed on all counts. The Buckeyes fell to the Fighting Illini, 21-12, on Friday. After the loss, the team boarded a bus back to Columbus to get ready for its dual with Minnesota. In that dual, the Buckeyes fell, 31-9. “There is just too many tough people in this sport to not be prepared to walk on the mat,” OSU coach Tom Ryan said. “They’re young people and they’re learning, and sometimes you have to hurt real bad to learn, and hopefully that one stings.” After Friday’s loss at Illinois, the Buckeyes did not arrive in the Columbus until about 4 a.m. Saturday. But they were already in the gym at 2 p.m., preparing for the Golden Gophers. Redshirt sophomore captain C.J. Magrum, 184 pounds, said it was difficult to come back on such little sleep, trying to maintain weight and get prepared for a second dual in less than 24 hours. “We got in at 4 (a.m.), and it was hard to go to sleep for some reason,” Magrum said. “Plus the fact we had to keep our weight down before the match, that was the worst part. You know guys were coming in to practice today at 2 (p.m.) with not a lot of sleep. Plus you’re cutting five pounds before your match.” Magrum faced two tough opponents last weekend. On Friday, he defeated Illinois redshirt freshman Tony Dallago, 3-1, but lost to Minnesota redshirt freshman Kevin Steinhaus, who is ranked No. 8 in the 184-pound weight class. Some matches that night ended controversially. During the 149-pound match between OSU redshirt freshman Mike Fee and Minnesota redshirt freshman Danny Zilverberg, Fee appeared to injure his right knee, and yelled in pain. The late stop by the referees for the injury time allowed for Zilverberg to score two points on a reversal. Ryan was upset with the referees and heckled them from the bench. After he shouted his complaints, the referees gave him a warning. Ryan approached the referees during a break after the match to discuss what happened. Ryan said after the match he might have gone too far. But, while Ryan said Fee should have been protecting his own health and knee, the referees did not make matters better. “I went a little crazier than I needed to,” Ryan said. “Our guys got to protect his knee better when he feels it happening. It’s your job to protect it; it’s the official’s job to protect it. We didn’t do it. It just adds to the entire frustration and poor preparation of the group.” Senior captain Colt Sponseller, 165 pounds, won both of his matches, defeating Illinois sophomore Conrad Polz, 3-2, and Minnesota redshirt sophomore Cody Yohn, who is the 11th-ranked wrestler at 165 pounds. Sponseller, the No. 7-ranked wrestler at 165 pounds, improved to 17-3 and notched his sixth straight victory. “Well I think Colt Sponseller, he’s in the same group, the same workouts; he never steps backwards,” Ryan said. “He’s always a positive here; he’s always been. It’s the way he represents us. It’s the way he prepares for competition.” Sophomore captain Ian Paddock suffered an injury Friday night against Illinois junior Bernard Futrell in his 16-6 major decision loss. In his place, redshirt freshman Jacob Vaughan made his first-ever varsity start for the Buckeyes on Saturday. Vaughan faced a tough challenge and started strong, leading 5-4 after the first period. However, his opponent, Minnesota redshirt freshman David Thorn, took the match, 19-11. Vaughan, though disappointed with his loss, was excited to get the start. He said he had found out he would get the start Saturday because if he had known Friday, he would not have been able to sleep. “I was so excited to wrestle today, and nervous,” Vaughan said. “Once I realized I wasn’t going to throw up, I started relaxing a little bit.” Vaughan will get the next two starts at 133 pounds, as Paddock will miss the remainder of the regular season with an injury. Redshirt freshman Peter Capone, 197 pounds, had the highlight of Saturday’s dual, pinning Minnesota redshirt senior Joe Nord at 2:30 in the first period. The Buckeyes will head to Madison, Wis., to take on the No. 3 Badgers at 2 p.m. Sunday. Ryan said the goal for his team for the rest of the season is one thing: “Fight.” read more

EYEWITNESS SNAFU…

…on East Coast bribeShhhh! What a tangled, knotted web of snarled traffic ANSA McAL wove when they once again practised to deceive!!! Did you see shots of that traffic jam, which stretched from the UG Junction on the East Coast all the way to Vlissengen Road?? And the jam wasn’t just on the four-lane highway; desperate commuters and buses trying to get their passengers into “town” were forced into the surrounding village streets, scaring the dickens out of locals, who had never witnessed such scenes before.It was truly an illustration of “SNAFU”– which came out of endemic mass muddles during the last great war: Situation Normal – All F***ed UP!!! And it kinda summarises the quotidian situation in Guyana nowadays, doesn’t it??But yesterday’s traffic mess was special, not least because there was ABSOLUTELY no reason for it — except an opportunity for corporate bribery, which has come to typify almost every activity of this PNC-led APNU/AFC Administration.By now we all know the reason for the traffic jam: ANSA McAL wanted to erect an “Independence Arch” at the western approach to the city. Why? Well, as is the standard practice in this practice — which in the US is called “lobbying”, ANSA was showing “corporate responsibility” on our upcoming “50+1” Independence celebration. But hold it! Isn’t that on the 26th of the month?? Two weeks away??Well, as another aspect of its “corporate responsibility” — this one a bit broader that a payback to the Guyanese State for getting business, like $300M pharma contracts for $605M!! — it was hosting an event of its parent body in Trinidad THIS weekend at the Marriott. The Anthony N Sabga Caribbean Awards for Excellence, Arts & Letters, Science & Technology, Public & Civic Contributions and Entrepreneurship. Sabga was the founder of ANSA.Well, so who cares about the commuting public on the busiest thoroughfare in Guyana?? Who cares about the loss in productivity of thousands of companies? Who cares that CSEC students missed their exams?? Or UG students? Or folks missing flights? Hey!! ANSA has to show all those folks who came in for its Awards show how solid it is with the Guyanese Government. After all, its local Chairwoman was made Chair of the Board of the Government-owned Marriott!!Your Eyewitness wonders why the shill of the PM – the person in charge of “Public Information” — claimed it was “a local company” that caused the SNAFU, without naming ANSA?? And since when did ANSA stop being a Trini company?? Afraid the public would connect the dots??Hey!! Trotman, his AFC party leader, has already let the cat out of the bag about “political investments”!!!…on Govt “accomplishments”The PM’s shill — otherwise known as “Water Boy”, from when he was shilling for the WICB — wasn’t only in the news for his ANSA SNAFU coverup. He inserted a centerspread in three dailies — skipping this newspaper of course (snivelling Fascist!!) — bigging up “125 achievements” of the Government! It’s a shad, shad situation!! The fella just doesn’t get the first thing about PR.All he did was to remind folks about how far his Government’s fallen away from their promises!! Imagine beginning with “INCREASED SALARIES FOR PUBLIC SERVANTS”!!! Has he forgotten public servants were promised “SUBSTANTIAL RAISES” and the only “raise” they got was their “raised eyebrows” accompanying their howls of protest at the 50% salary raises the Cabinet awarded themselves!!??Next was “lower electricity rates”!! How lower was that after the 14% VAT the Govt imposed??!!

Google TV 31 is here Here is what you need to know

first_imgGoogle has always been the type of company to release a product in beta and let their audience help them fine tune it. This practice worked great when the products were all free. After all, how could you complain about something that’s free? When the products started to cost money, and not insignificant amounts of money either, the charm of a product being “beta” wore off for many users. A prime example of this is the failed launch of Google TV last year.Here was a great opportunity to really take over living room — Google’s “use the largest screen in the house” idea really spoke to me. I happily bought my Logitech Revue, rigged it to my Tivo and stood in amazement… as the rest of the broadcasting world seemed to block Google TV from accessing their content. To make matters worse, the Google TV system was based on my beloved Android operating system, but offered none of the goodies I enjoyed from my phone on a daily basis. It didn’t take long for Logitech to figure out that they could only move Google TV units if they dropped the price to $99 and promised everyone on stage with Google at I/O this year than an update was coming that would fix everything. Months have passed without a sound, and finally today we have an update on what’s to come for Google TV.Completely overhauled UIAndroid 3.1 has been adjusted to fit screens of any size, as was demonstrated by Google’s Fragments UI explanation at Google I/O. Essentially, your navigation will exist across the left hand panel, unless you are watching live TV. If you are watching live TV, a submenu will pop up on the bottom of the screen to give you access to basic features. Since it’s Android 3.1, you can expect the color scheme to be Tron-ish blues and blacks all around.Depending on how you have your Google TV configured and who your television provider is, the most amazing feature to the core OS is the search function. Easily dig around for your favorite show and get all the information your provider has, plus anything Google can find across search and IMDB on the shows or movies you are watching. Google TV is still bound to a single Gmail.com address, which is frustrating but not a deal breaker, unless you have multiple people in the house that want to use Google+ on the Google TV.Apps!Android’s power truly comes from being open source, and the Android Market’s enormous volume of apps. Since Google TV isn’t open source, we’ve got to rely exclusively on the Market for our amazing. Google has packed the Android Market with apps customized for Google TV. The Movies by Flixster app, for example, is already set to deliver not only movie experience information and showtimes, but also the latest UltraViolet movie streaming, if you are an avid Blu-ray purchaser. Stream music with Google Music, watch movies on the YouTube powered Movies app with the same library as your phone. Not every app that runs on Google TV has been visually optimized for the Honeycomb Fragments, but still provide a great experience. My personal favorite just for the amusement factor was the Classy Fireplace app, turning my TV into a roaring fireplace.While regular apps are fun, let’s talk about games! Android 3.1 supports USB controllers like the Xbox 360, and the Android Market is chock full of games. While Angry Birds isn’t quite ready for Google TV, it’s only a matter of time. Meanwhile, Nascar managed to be the first out of the gate with the Nascar Live app, allowing you to keep up on your favorite drivers and get notifications from the app before a race is about to come one. The app also includes videos and standings for all of the active drivers.Developers, if you haven’t already, check out Google’s suggested design patterns for the best way to get your App ready for Google TV.If you already own a Google TVIf you have already installed one of the leaked builds floating around the internet on your Logitech Revue, there’s a distinct possibility that you are out of luck for this update. It’s possible that the clever hackers of the world may save you, but Google will not. For $99, you may consider just picking up a new one. The update will be first rolling out to Sony Google TV owners, and that rollout will begin on Sunday. Sometime in the next month, Logitech Revue units and everything else will also get the latest update for your Google TV experience. Currently there is no talk at Google at all about whether or not Ice Cream Sandwich and Google TV will ever be friends.Final ThoughtsNot being able to have multiple logins for Google TV still feels like a huge mistake. People live in houses, and those houses will more often than not have more than a single Google user in them. Why not support the household when you claim to be building Google TV to make it easier for the family to gather around the TV to enjoy the web together? Android Apps is a huge plus for the Google TV system, and as long as developers pick it up the platform will naturally grow in its user base. The real question now is whether or not an OS with no open source and the ability to make their own apps and charge for them is enough for all of the organizations that blocked Google TV to change their tune and allow this experience to be a positive one.last_img read more

Le Game Boy Pocket est de retour

first_imgLe Game Boy Pocket est de retourSpécialisé dans le recyclage d’anciens gadgets technologiques, la société Lëkki réintroduit la Game Boy Pocket, la mythique console de jeu portable de Nintendo.Le Game Boy a été l’une des machines les plus aimées et jouées de tous les temps. Nintendo avait alors sorti une console portable à l’autonomie correcte et avec des jeux aujourd’hui mythiques comme Mario ou Zelda dans leurs déclinaisons nomades. Même la DS et aujourd’hui 3DS ont repris le flambeau, le Game Boy reste encore indétronable dans le cœur de nombreux joueurs.À lire aussiJouer à Tetris pourrait aider à soigner les yeux paresseuxSouhaitant profiter de cette vague de nostalgie que constitue le rétro-gaming, c’est à dire l’envie de rejouer à ces machines de notre enfance, la société Lëkki ressort le Game Boy Pocket, le même que celui des années 90 ou presque puisque l’entreprise en a profité pour modifier légèrement le design de l’appareil. Son écran reste monochrome mais gagne légèrement en taille là où la taille du boitier est réduite de 30%.Pour le reste, l’alimentation reste deux piles AA pour une autonomie de 35 heures de jeu. Le jeu justement est fourni avec la machine avec un titre au choix dont Asterix, Tiny Toons ou le légendaire Tetris.

Skamania deputies search for mushroom picker 93

first_imgSkamania County authorities on Wednesday entered a second day of searching for a deaf 93-year-old woman overdue from a mushroom picking expedition near Mount Adams.The woman was last seen Tuesday morning on the western flank of the mountain, in eastern Skamania County, according to a sheriff’s office news release. According to the Coast Guard, the woman was supposed to wait in a car while her family went mushroom picking. When family members returned at noon, she was missing.She is identified as Sonn Souv, of Newberg, Ore.The family eventually reported her missing at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday. About 25 searchers worked through the night in temperatures that dropped into the upper 30s. A Coast Guard aircraft from Astoria, Ore., assisted in the search with an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter equipped with night vision gear.On Wednesday, another MH-60 crew searched from 8:50 a.m. until 12:06 p.m. but failed to locate her. The search was to continue through the night if necessary. “We are very concerned for the welfare of Ms. Souv,” said Undersheriff Dave Cox. “We are continuing to place available resources into the area, including during night operations, in an ongoing attempt to locate her.” More than 40 ground searchers, some with search dogs or horses, were on the case Wednesday.The search area is in the vicinity of the Salt Creek Trailhead on Forest Service Road 8031, northwest of Trout Lake, in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.The case is similar to a September incident in which an 84-year-old Tacoma man was found safe after he went missing for two nights while picking mushrooms in the forest south of Randle.last_img read more

Morrisons to raise pay for store staff

first_imgMorrisons is proposing to increase pay for store staff from £6.83 to £8.20 an hour.The pay rise will apply to store-based staff of all ages, benefiting over 90,000 employees.The supermarket chain will invest more than £40 million in the hourly wage increase. It will also simplify pay supplements, such as a premium for working on a Sunday.The pay rise is subject to a positive ballot among members of Usdaw, the shop workers’ union, to be held on 12 November. If members vote in favour of the move, which Usdaw supports, then the higher pay rate will come into effect in March 2016.  The proposed hourly wage of £8.20 an hour is higher than the Living Wage Foundation’s living wage rate. This currently stands at £7.85 an hour and £9.15 in London. New living wage rates for the UK and London will be announced in November.The hourly pay rate proposed by Morrisons is also higher than the government’s national living wage, which will be introduced in April 2016. The national living wage, initially set at £7.20, is a statutory requirement for staff aged 25 and above.David Potts, chief executive of Morrisons, said: “We have been listening to our colleagues who told us they want their pay to be more competitive and simpler.“By paying a significantly higher hourly rate, we are recognising the contribution of our excellent staff, who are so important to the revival of Morrisons.”Joanne McGuinness, national officer at Usdaw, added: “For some time, we have been talking to the [organisation] about taking retail staff up to, and beyond, the Living Wage Foundation rate, currently set at £7.85 an hour. So I am delighted that we have agreed a rise that takes staff way past that to £8.20.“It is a big step forward, shows that the [organisation is] prepared to invest in staff to help grow the business and I hope that the deal is supported by our members in the ballot.”last_img read more

Triumph and Williams are teaming up on future electric motorcycles

first_imgEnlarge ImageIf Triumph has its way, in a few years it will be able to sell you electric versions of your favorite Triumph models. Triumph Electric motorcycles are becoming increasingly “a thing” and you know that’s the case when legacy brands like Harley-Davidson are getting in on it. Now, though, a new player is entering the game, and it’s Triumph.Yeah, that Triumph that makes scramblers and Bonnevilles and Rockets and Tigers. It announced on Wednesday that it was initiating a program that it’s calling “TE-1,” which will focus on the development of compact battery-electric drivetrain options for future motorcycle models.Here’s the part that will turn your brain into a hot little coal: Triumph is teaming up with Williams to get this project going. Yes, that Williams. The famed Formula One engineering firm, the same company that helped Singer get its Dynamics and Lightweighting Study cars off the ground.”This new collaboration represents an exciting opportunity for Triumph and its partners to be leaders in the technology that will enable the electrification of motorcycles,” said Triumph CEO Nick Bloor in a statement. “Project Triumph TE-1 is one part of our electric motorcycle strategy, focused on delivering what riders want and expect from their Triumph, which is the perfect balance of handling, performance and usability.”Based on Bloor’s statement, we’d expect that Triumph’s path toward electrification will differ significantly from, say, Harley-Davidson’s. Where H-D is offering one electric motorcycle — the Livewire — with a stratospheric price tag and then plans to offer two other models that are more akin to scooters or electric bicycles than they are motorcycles, Triumph will offer no-compromise electric versions of its ICE models.”The team at Williams Advanced Engineering is looking forward to applying our expertise in the electrification of transport with our partners,” said Craig Wilson, managing director of Williams Advanced Engineering, in a statement.  “Williams has powered a number of world-renowned electric vehicles already and this will be a significant further step in our work by taking that knowledge onto two wheels.”Now, historically, when a company like Triumph would announce something as grand as Project Triumph TE-1, we’d have viewed it with a great deal of skepticism. Triumph, in particular, has had a checkered financial past, and developing new tech is expensive. Now, though, Triumph is at the top of its game, and its models are among the best in the industry. We’re genuinely excited to see how this turns out. 2020 BMW 330e first drive: A plug-in 3 Series without compromise Motorcycles Electric Cars Tags 2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire first ride: Harley’s electric future is bright Share your voice Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire is the sporty electric streetbike we need Post a comment Triumph 47 Photos More From Roadshow 2020 Volvo XC60 T8 Polestar Engineered first drive: Almost Super Trouper 0last_img read more

Body of headless woman found inside box near Delhi metro station probe

first_imgGetty ImagesIn a spine-chilling incident, a headless body of a woman was found in a box on a bicycle near the national capital’s Jahangirpuri metro station on Saturday, June 8.The body was discovered at around 5 pm in the evening by the Delhi Police when a local shop owner noticed water dripping from the box and an odour emanating from it and informed the police. They soon arrived at the scene, opened the box and found the decomposed body.”Inside, a woman’s headless body was found wrapped in a blanket,” Bhisham Singh, additional deputy commissioner of police (North West) told Hindustan Times. He added, “There were no identification proofs in the box.””Prima facie it appears that the woman had been killed two-three days ago and was dumped here. The body had started to decompose and the skin had turned black,” an officer was quoted as saying by PTI.Investigators revealed that the box was white in colour and that it was taped in many places so that it wouldn’t come apart when the body was stuffed in it.A probe is underway and the footages from a CCTV camera in the vicinity are being scrutinised to check who brought the bicycle. The body has also been sent for an autopsy to Babu Jagjivan Ram Memorial Hospital.last_img read more

Emanuel Explores Life After Tragic Church Shooting

first_imgBy MESFIN FEKADU AP Entertainment WriterNEW YORK (AP) — Jennifer Pinckney was hiding under a desk holding the mouth of her then-6-year-old daughter when Dylann Roof fired more than 70 shots in Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, killing nine black worshippers.The new documentary, “Emanuel,” explores life after the tragic shooting on June 17, 2015, as family members, friends and the community try to heal through faith and forgiveness.In this June 24, 2015, file photo Sen. Clementa Pinckney’s wife Jennifer Pinckney, center, and her daughters, Eliana, left, and Malana, right, follow his casket into the South Carolina Statehouse in Columbia, S.C. The Rev.

Clementa Pinckney, was one of the nine killed by Roof, who sat through 45 minutes of Bible study at the church before firing shots. Pinckney and her daughter, Malana, were in the reverend’s office when they heard gun shots in another room.“It brings it all back for me,” Pinckney said of watching “Emanuel,” which opens in theaters nationwide for a limited run on Monday and Wednesday . Oscar winner Viola Davis and NBA star Steph Curry are executive producers.“It’s emotional. I can’t help but to relive what happened.”Roof was convicted of federal hate-crime and obstruction-of-religion charges and sentenced to death.Before the attack, the then-21-year-old had told a friend that he intended to kill people at the historic black church to start a race war. Emanuel is the oldest African Methodist Episcopal church in the U.S. South.In this June 19, 2015 file photo, police tape surrounds the parking lot behind the AME Emanuel Church as FBI forensic experts work the crime scene, in Charleston, S.C. he new documentary, “Emanuel,” explores life after the tragic shooting took place on June 17, 2015, as family members, friends and the community try to heal through faith and forgiveness. (AP Photo/Stephen B. Morton, File)Pinckney said she hopes the film, directed by Brian Ivie, “kind of opens people’s eyes.”“It’s like an awareness,” she said. “We have to get to that point where we start respecting, and showing more love and more care, and coming together, (and) becoming one unity.”At a bond hearing days after the attack, some of the victims’ family members offered Roof forgiveness and said they were praying for him, even as they described the pain of their losses. Emmy-winning actress Mariska Hargitay, a co-producer of “Emanuel,” was touched when she saw the way the family members reacted.“We’re all fascinated by people who can do things that we can’t do. I’m watching a movie (where) a group of people were loving at the highest level. You feel like these people are shamans and possessed something deeply extra, and the extra was indeed grace for me,” Hargitay said.“Like everyone does in seeing a movie like this, it goes straight to the core and straight to our souls,” she said. “I experienced deep outrage and sorrow and anger and all that for those we lost. I also experienced hope.”The shooter killed six women and three men. Eight died at the scene, while the ninth, Daniel Simmons, died at the hospital. Then-U.S. President Barack Obama delivered the eulogy at the Rev. Clementa Pinckney’s funeral and led the singing of “Amazing Grace.”Jennifer Pinckney said thanks to counseling and prayer, she and Malana, now 10, are doing OK. She also has a 15-year-old daughter.But Pinckney, like many other family and friends of those who died, said it’s hard moving on with life after losing loved ones.“We’ve already started college tours and stuff like that — kind of difficult just to think on that level, but also to think this is something that we’re doing that Clementa’s not sharing,” she said. “That he’s not physically with us.”Despite her own grief and loss, she hopes the community can continue to come together.“You have to learn to respect each other’s differences. No two people are alike,” she said. “That’s something that I hope people will get from this (film) — to love more and get right with God.”last_img read more

Nintendo Could Be Working on a Nintendo 64 Classic Edition

first_imgStay on target Nintendo has given fans of retro games a lot of love lately. Last year the company released the NES Classic Edition. This year, it is set to drop a miniature SNES. Now, a recent trademark filing suggests an N64 Classic Edition is on the horizon.The trademark filing is for a Nintendo 64-like controller (pictured below). As posted on NeoGAF, Nintendo recently applied for a trademark of this controller with the European Union Intellectual Property Office. This application falls under goods and services, meaning that the trademark is for a physical product. Similar trademarks were filed for the NES, and SNES controllers before the Classic Editions of both systems were announced. Because of that, it’s possible that this filing is for an N64 Classic Edition controller.Releasing a Nintendo 64 plug-and-play retro console after the NES and the upcoming SNES Classic Edition makes a lot of sense. N64 games have been emulated before, so it shouldn’t be a problem to get them running as they did back in the day. N64 games are a lot bigger file size-wise when compared to NES and SNES games. Because of that, it’s possible that this machine will cost more than the NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic Edition (priced at $60 and $80, respectively).None of this has been confirmed by Nintendo, so it’s best to temper expectations for the moment. However, given all of the evidence presented, don’t be surprised if an N64 Classic Edition does eventually become a reality. This would be great for Nintendo fans since the system had a ton of fantastic games on it. Hopefully, Nintendo will make enough systems for anyone who wants one. They certainly don’t want a repeat of what happened with the NES Classic Edition.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
