Netgear scooped it up in August 2018, and is now announcing a third-generation version of the smart art frame here at CES. The Meural is essentially a large, Wi-Fi-connected digital display that you hang on your wall. A $50 annual subscription buys you access to a database of over 30,000 images from various artists and institutions around the world, which you can then display on the 1080p screen. The previous version cost $600 for a 27-inch model. See also Netgear has also made a few technical updates to produce the Meural 3.0. Among other things, Netgear says it has added an improved Wi-Fi chipset that’s more stable and with country-specific tweaks. It also moved the light sensor, which the company says helps the screen adjust for brightness levels more consistently. You can also look forward to more streamlined setup from the accompanying app. Netgear hasn’t specified pricing or availability timing of the Meural 3.0, but we hope to see it before the end of 2019. Netgear is introducing a few more options for the Meural with this third-generation version. You can opt for a 21.5-inch model or the original 27-inch design. You can also choose from a few different bezels, including black, white, or light or dark woods. Art partners for the subscription service now include the Saturday Evening Post and Normal Rockwell Archives, as well as the National Geographic archive.

Malaika Arora, Arbaaz Khan, Giorgia AndrianiVarinder ChawlaEx-couple Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora have been in the news ever since the two announced their separation in 2016. They were granted divorce in May 2017. The two have now moved on in their respectives lives and found solace in their new partners’ arms. While Arbaaz is dating Italian model Giorgia Andriani, Malaika is seeing Arjun Kapoor. Both Arbaaz and Malaika have spoken about their bitter separation and how they couldn’t bare with each other anymore. But are they still cordial with each other?A lot of things happen when a slew of Bollywood stars come under the same roof. And the same happened when Arbaaz and Malaika were seen walking the Zee Cine Awards 2019 red carpet in Mumbai, on Tuesday (March 19). All eyes were on Arbaaz and Malaika as soon as they entered into the open air auditorium.Malaika was the first one to arrive at the venue and was seen posing on the red carpet and interacting with the media. She was wearing a dramatic red thigh-high slit silk gown and needless to say that the Bollywood diva was looking turned many heads with her mesmerising look. Arbaaz and Giorgia, on the other hand, arrived on the red carpet after Malaika left the spot. The two walked hand-in-hand and posed for some photographs on the red carpet.However, conflicting reports have been making the rounds about Arbaaz and Malaika’s chemistry at the award function. A report in Dainik Jagran says that Arbaaz and Malaika both had come face-to-face with each other and even had an eye contact but paid no heed to each other.Meanwhile, a report in Spotboye says that though Arbaaz and Malaika arrived one after another, Malaika greeted Arbaaz with a hug when the latter walked in with his girlfriend Giorgia at the event coordinating in black and white.International Business Times India couldn’t independently verify these reports.A few days ago, Malaika had opened up about her divorce with Arbaaz Khan and said that she was glad that she took the decision on her own. Arbaaz too made it clear that his relationship with his 16-year-old son Arhaan is beautiful, it looks like his equation with Malaika has gone sour. And the reason could be none other than her relationship with Arjun Kapoor.

<< Previous PostNext Post >> Tuesday, November 20, 2018 By: The Associated Press Communities flee eruption at Guatemala’s Volcano of Fire GUATEMALA CITY — About 4,000 residents fled Guatemala’s volcano of Fire Monday as red-hot rock and ash spewed into the sky and cascaded down the slopes toward an area devastated by a deadly eruption earlier this year.Guatemala’s volcanology unit said that explosions from the 12,300-foot (3,763-meter) high mountain shook homes with “constant sounds similar to a train locomotive.”Incandescent material burst as high as 1,000 metres (3,200 feet) above the crater and flows of hot rock and ash extended nearly 2 miles (3 kilometres) down one flank of the volcano. Hot blasts of pyroclastic material pushed down canyons on the slopes, while a column of ash rose nearly 23,000 feet (7,000 metres) above sea level and drifted toward Guatemala City to the east.Hundreds of families heeded the call of disaster co-ordination authorities to evacuate 10 communities, piling into yellow school buses for trips to shelters. The national disaster commission said 3,925 people had been evacuated by early Monday. As the hours passed, however, the intensity of the volcano’s activity decreased and many decided to return to their homes or seek shelter with friends or family.More news: A new low for no-frills flying: easyJet assigns backless seat to passengerThe Volcano of Fire is one of the most active in Central America and an eruption in June killed 194 people. Another 234 are officially missing, although organizations supporting the communities have insisted there are thousands of missing persons.It spewed more ash and hot rock in October, prompting warnings for the nearby communities.The biggest danger from the volcano are lahars, a mixture of ash, rock, mud and debris, that can bury entire towns. On Monday, there had been no reports of such flows reaching populated areas, though authorities were taking no chances; they were harshly criticized for not calling for evacuations earlier in June.Four shelters have been set up for evacuees. Dora Caal, 26, and five members of her family took refuge under a nylon tent at a sports stadium in the nearby town of Escuintla.“Last night we heard the volcano roar, you could see fire, we couldn’t sleep,” said Caal, whose town of El Rodeo was largely evacuated.More news: Virgin Voyages de-activates Quebec accounts at FirstMates agent portal“At dawn we said we’d better get out, we were afraid,” Caal said as the sun beat down fiercely at the improvised shelter. People like Caal are still reeling from the effects of the June eruption.“Back then I lost my job at a farm that was on the slopes of the volcano. They closed it and we can’t work there anymore,” she said.Enma Hernandez, 42, left her home in El Rodeo to evacuate, but her 20-year-old son stayed behind to protect the family home from looters. In fact, many men stayed behind in the town; there were mainly women and children at the shelter. Tags: Guatemala, Volcano Share
