Atleo urges PM GG to accept treaty meeting invitation to quell protests

first_imgBy Jorge Barrera APTN National News OTTAWA–Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Gov. Gen. David Johnston have been invited to attend a treaty meeting on Jan. 24, the one-year anniversary of the Crown-First Nations gathering.In a letter sent on New Year’s Day to Harper and Johnston, Atleo urges both men to immediately accept the invitation to quell escalating cross-country protests and bring an end to the hunger strikes by Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence and Cross Lake Elder Raymond Robinson.“Immediate acceptance to this urgent invitation will, both respond to the health of Chief Spence and Raymond Robinson and enable those currently demonstrating for such a meeting to return to their communities and to their responsibilities,” wrote Atleo, in the Jan. 1 letter obtained by APTN National News. “We can then support and enable focused dialogue and work led by each First Nation, within every treaty area on matters of greatest importance.”Spence began her hunger strike on Dec. 11 and Robinson on Dec. 12. The Idle No More, grassroots movement has also been sweeping the country through flash mob round dances, rallies and blockades, and it has generated considerable support in the U.S. and around the world.A number of rail blockades have also been launched over the past few weeks, including two in Ontario, one in British Columbia and an ongoing rail blockade in northeastern Quebec.In the letter, Atleo said First Nations chiefs recently held emergency discussions and that the leadership is “determined to set a course of resolution for our people.”The Prime Minister’s Office did not immediately return a request for comment on whether they were open to participating in the meeting.A spokeswoman for Johnston said they had received the invitation.“A reply will be shared with the Assembly of First Nations in due course,” said Julie Rocheleau, in an email to APTN National News.Atleo did not mention location of the treaty meeting, however, some chiefs have pushed to have it held in Saskatchewan. Last year’s Crown-First Nations gathering was held in Ottawa.There was also no mention in the letter of a planned Jan. 16 day of action, but Atleo wrote that First Nations would be “meeting and assessing their strategies for change needed urgently in the days and weeks ahead.”During the emergency meetings, which were co-chaired by Serpent River Chief Isadore Day, from Ontario, and Onion Lake Cree Nation Chief Wallace Fox, from Saskatchewan, chiefs discussed setting Jan. 16 as a day of action that could see economic disruptions across the country.The participating chiefs also issued a letter signed by “First Nation leaders of Turtle Island” following their meetings and called on Harper to uphold the “honour of the Crown.”In an interview Thursday, Fox said he was disappointed with Atleo’s letter and said it didn’t reflect the direction the national chief received following a meeting on Monday. Fox said Atleo was asked to include Saskatchewan as the location for the proposed treaty meeting and to mention Jan. 16 as a set day of action.Fox said Atleo was also told by the Spence camp to include a deadline for response in the letter to the prime minister and governor general.“I am very disappointed with the way it was drafted, that is not what was understood on Monday when he was present,” said Fox.Fox said if Harper and Johnston reject the invitation, then the day of action should be moved up to the middle of next week.“It’s (Spence’s) health that is the immediate priority here,” said Fox.APTN National News has obtained minutes from a conference call between Treaty 1 to 11 chiefs on Dec. 28, 2012, which discussed plans to target “main economic and energy corridors, such as power sources, railways and highways.”According to the minutes, “it was agreed that in the short-term, immediate pressure needs to be stepped up because Chief Spence’s health is at risk.”On Wednesday, Spence issued a statement saying First Nations leaders were planning to issue “breach of treaty” declarations and launch “country wide economic disturbances.”The AFN executive also met on Wednesday.“First Nations leaders from coast-to-coast-to coast have collectively raised our voices about the critical situation facing First Nations,” wrote Atleo. “Solutions will not come overnight, but solutions must begin now and they must be done in full respect of the treaty relationship and our inherent responsibilities.” LetterDownload (PDF, Unknown)last_img read more

Oprah Spielberg help Apple launch new streaming service

NEW YORK — Apple trotted out few details on its long-awaiting streaming service on Monday, but it didn’t skimp on high-wattage celebrity.Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg and Jennifer Aniston were part of a parade of A-listers who took the stage at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California, where the main attractions are usually the company’s latest high-tech gadgets.This time, though, it was the likes of Big Bird and Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa, who took the spotlight at Apple’s latest live-streamed product launch.“I’m joining forces with Apple,” declared Winfrey. “They’re in a billion pockets, y’all.”Apple chief executive Tim Cook gave what he called “a sneak peek” of the tech giant’s plans to transform television viewing and jump — some analysts say belatedly — into the streaming business Netflix has pioneered.The service, dubbed Apple TV Plus, will debut in the fall in more than 100 countries and feature ad-free original series and films. Cook and Apple declined to say how much the nascent streaming service will cost. It was unveiled as an extension of Apple’s redesigned TV app, which will bundle third-party services like HBO, CBS and Showtime, along with a user’s cable subscription and some streaming services like Hulu. Netflix has said it won’t partake.Much of both Hollywood and Silicon Valley had eagerly awaited details on Apple’s much-ballyhooed foray into original programming, something the company had been quietly prepping for the last few years — and laying aside at least $1 billion to do so. But it’s not the only company readying a rival to Netflix, which spent $12 billion on content last year. The Walt Disney Co. and AT&T’s WarnerMedia are both set to unveil their own platforms later this year.Standing out from the pack will be a challenge for each. Disney’s streaming service, named Disney-Plus, even bears a plus-symbol just like Apple’s service.“It’s not just another streaming service,” said Zack Van Amburg, who along with Jamie Erlicht was hired away from Sony TV to head Apple’s video programming.Cook didn’t map out how extensive Apple’s streaming library will be; it has about two dozen series and a handful of movies in the pipeline. But he promised big ambitions. “We partnered with the most thoughtful, accomplished and award-winning group of creative visionaries who have ever come together in one place, to create a new service unlike anything that’s been done before,” he said.But what the presentation lacked in particulars it sought to make up for with star power and sizzle-reel teases of its upcoming slate. Some of the highlights:— Oprah: Winfrey said she has two documentaries in the works for Apple TV Plus (one on mental health, one on the toll of sexual harassment in the workplace) and is planning “the most stimulating book club on the planet.” The TV personality, whose book club choices have made dozens of works into instant bestsellers, said the Apple broadcast will include streamed conversations with authors. Winfrey already has her OWN network and “O” magazine where she still makes book picks, most recently Michelle Obama’s “Becoming.” ”I am proud to be a part of this platform where I can connect with people around the world to create positive change,” said Winfrey.— “Amazing Stories”: Executive produced by Steve Spielberg, “Amazing Stories” is a science-fiction anthology series the filmmaker is reviving. It first ran for two seasons from 1985-1987 on NBC. “We want to transport the audience with every single episode,” said Spielberg.— “The Morning Show”: Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell star in this series about the behind-the-scenes drama at a TV morning show. Witherspoon said it will “pull back the curtain on men and women in the high-stakes battle of morning television.” It is, notably, Aniston’s first time back in television since “Friends.” ”And I’m really excited about it,” she said.— “Little America”: Kumail Nanjiani unveiled this anthology series based on true-life tales of immigrants or children of immigrants from across the country. “This is no such thing as the other,” said the comedian-actor-writer. “There is only us.”— “See”: This post-apocalyptic series stars Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard takes places centuries after a cataclysmic event where all of humanity has lost its sight.Other shows in development include the thriller “Defending Jacob,” in which Chris Evans plays a father whose 14-year-old son is accused of murder; an untitled drama from M. Night Shyamalan; a series from “La La Land” director Damien Chazelle; a show about computer coding for preschoolers called “Helpsters,” with Big Bird; a drama series about youth basketball produced by Kevin Durant; “Dickinson,” starring Hailee Steinfeld as Emily Dickinson; and “Little Voice,” a show about a young musician produced by J. J. Abrams and Sara Bareilles, who performed the theme song Monday.Apple’s nascent movie aims were harder to discern Monday. It previously entered into a partnership with A24, the indie label behind films like “Moonlight” and “Lady Bird.” Their first film together is to be “On the Rocks,” Sofia Coppola’s reunion with “Lost in Translation” star Bill Murray. He plays a larger-than-life father reconnecting with his daughter, played by Rashida Jones.___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: Coyle, The Associated Press read more

Some 90 per cent of domestic workers excluded from social protection –

“Most of their work is undervalued and unprotected, when domestic workers become old or injured, they are fired, without a pension or adequate income support. This can and must be redressed,” explained Isabel Ortiz, Director of the ILO Social Protection Department in a press release on the launch of the report, Social protection for domestic workers: Key policy trends and statistics. Domestic work is considered a sector that is difficult to cover, partly because work is performed in private households and frequently for more than one employer. The occupation is also characterized by high job turnover, frequent in-kind payments, irregular wages and a lack of formal work contracts. “Given that it is predominantly a female workforce highly subject to discrimination as well as social and economic vulnerability, policies to extend social protection to domestic workers are key elements in the fight against poverty and the promotion of gender equality,” said Philippe Marcadent, Chief of the ILO’s Inclusive Labour Markets, Labour Relations and Working Conditions Branch. While the largest gaps in social security coverage for domestic work are concentrated in developing countries – with Asia and Latin America representing 68 per cent of domestic workers worldwide – the study finds that social protection deficits for domestic workers also persist in some industrialized countries. In Italy, for example, some 60 per cent of domestic workers are not registered with, or contributing to, social security systems. In Spain and France, 30 per cent of domestic workers are excluded from social security coverage.Social security is a human right for all The study underscores that “there is no justification for domestic workers to remain excluded from social security, which is a human right for all.” Senior ILO Economist Fabio Duran-Valverde stressed: “Looking at ways to improve the current coverage, there is no single protection model that works best for domestic workers everywhere. But mandatory coverage (instead of voluntary coverage) is a crucial element for achieving adequate and effective coverage under any system.” However, because of the uniquely vulnerable situation of domestic workers, mandatory coverage will not be effective alone. Strategies should include – among other measures – fiscal incentives, registration plans, awareness-raising campaigns targeting domestic workers and their employers as well as service voucher mechanisms. Domestic work should also be integrated into broader policies aimed at reducing informal work. The study also warns that migrant domestic workers – currently estimated at 11.5 million worldwide – often face even greater discrimination. Around 14 per cent of countries whose social security systems provide some type of coverage for domestic workers do not extend the same rights to migrant domestic workers. read more

Womens volleyball Two top25 teams await No 14 Buckeyes in Michigan

Senior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe (left) embraces senior middle blocker Kylie Randall after OSU’s 3-0 win over Northwestern at St. John Arena on Sept. 28, 2016. Credit: Jenna Leinasars | Assistant News DirectorThe Ohio State women’s volleyball team took down the No. 1 team in the country last weekend — but that doesn’t mean its conference schedule will be getting any easier.The No. 14 Buckeyes will play two more teams ranked in the Top 25 this weekend – No. 21 Michigan State on Friday and OSU rival No. 23 Michigan, on Sunday.On Saturday, OSU stunned fans as it took down undefeated, No. 1 Nebraska in four sets. This was the first time that OSU has won against a top-ranked team on the road and the third consecutive time the Buckeyes have been victorious on the Husker home court. Junior outside hitter Ashley Wenz said the team’s performance in Lincoln, Nebraska, was a great opportunity for people to see what Buckeye volleyball is all about.“The Nebraska match really gave us a chance to prove ourselves, and really bring us together as a team and show what we’re capable of,” she said. Wenz feels that if the team can channel its energy from the match against the Huskers into the rest of its play, the team will be able to have repeated success. “I think that bottling up the feeling and the unity we had during that match, (we’re) trying to replicate it against every opponent,” she said.First, the Buckeyes will have to battle the Spartans on Friday. Over the past two seasons, the series is split between the two teams. Currently, Michigan State holds a 13-3 record. OSU coach Geoff Carlston gave credit to the Spartans for being what he considers one of the most physically dominant teams in the nation.He added that his team’s ability to slow down Michigan State hitters will be key to OSU’s success.“They just hit the ball hard,” he said. “So our ability to slow them down with our block is going to be important.”Currently, both Michigan State and Michigan are ranked above the Buckeyes in blocks for the Big Ten conference.A player that will be imperative to the Buckeyes’ blocking game is senior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe. She is averaging 1.05 blocks per set, and has combined for 61 total blocks this season. Sandbothe ranks second in most career blocks in OSU history with 481. Sandbothe received both conference and national recognition this week: Big Ten Player of the Week and the American Volleyball Coaches’ Association’s National Player of the Week. She was joined by fellow senior, libero Valeria León, who won the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week and sophomore setter Taylor Hughes, who clinched the espnW National Player of the Week. After their bout with the Spartans, the Buckeyes will have a day off before visiting the Michigan Wolverines. Members of OSU’s team noted that this match always comes with a little extra motivation behind it.“The seniors always talk about it. You can feel it. There’s always a little edge to the match, a little more so than all of the other ones,” Carlston said.One of the members of Carlston’s senior leadership, León, added that she loves the environment of playing at Michigan. “We go out there — you have so many fans against you — and it’s all blue and yellow,” she said.The Wolverines are also carrying a 13-3 record this season. In 2015, OSU was able to pull off a 3-1 win while in Ann Arbor, Michigan, but the Scarlet and Gray were swept by the Wolverines at St. John Arena in the next matchup. Wenz, who hails from Springboro, Ohio, is hopeful that her team can keep their victory train rolling with a win over “That Team Up North.”“Being from Ohio, it’s always great to beat them,” she said. “So hopefully we can continue that streak.”The Buckeyes will first play Michigan State at 7 p.m. on Friday in East Lansing, Michigan, followed by the match against Michigan at 1 p.m. on Sunday in Ann Arbor. read more

Elderly Irish woman finds five pound note worth £50000 and donates it

first_imgThe elderly woman didn’t want to be famous, but just wanted her fiver to do some good.“An old lady found it and she said ‘I don’t want my picture in the papers’ and she said ‘if it sells for a lot of money it will be better if young children could benefit from it’,” Mr Short told the BBC.Mr Short spent one of each of the four special fivers in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.They have been found in Ireland, Scotland and Wales but the five pound note he spent in England is still yet to be retrieved.Mr Short’s friend and fellow artist, Tony Huggins-Haig, who launched the project, said around 5,000 people have called up falsely claiming to have found it. Check your fivers! Last remaining Jane Austen £5 note worth £50,000 ‘could be anywhere in the world’— Telegraph News (@TelegraphNews) February 19, 2017 A famous engraver etched a tiny picture of Jane Austen on some five pound notes.Each one is estimated to be worth £50,000, judging by the value of some of his other work.Across Britain, people checked their fivers to see whether they had one of the four special notes.The third one has now been found by an elderly Northern Irish woman, and she has kindly donated it to charity.She sent it back to Graham Short, who engraved the notes, with a note asking him to use it to “help young people”. The series number of the remaining note is AM32885554.”It would be wondrous if someone finds it who is deserving, who is blown away by it, and who wants to do something worthwhile with it,” said 53-year-old Mr Huggins-Haig.”It’s been an incredible and humbling story thanks to Graham, who goes to incredible lengths to create artwork.”It really is a Willy Wonka story, and one day all four stories will be told, of which the first three are incredible.”All of Mr Short’s work is insured for at least £50,000, but Mr Huggins-Haig believes the notes could actually sell for up to £100,000.center_img “£5 note enclosed, I don’t need it at my time of life. Please use it to help young people,” the kindly woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, wrote.Mr Short’s website reads: “The lady who found the note has surprised us all by sending it to the gallery and asking that it be used to help young people. So Graham and the Gallery will be working closely together to do so.”Currently contacting outlets connected to Children in Need to try and give this to a good cause so we honour the request of the lucky woman who originally discovered the note.”Stay tuned for more information as the story develops over the following days!” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Coin enthusiast who stabbed fellow collector to death facing 30 years behind

A coin enthusiast has been convicted of murder after stabbing a fellow collector 17 times while trying to steal a rare set of Beatrix Potter 50ps.Danny Bostock, 33, attacked 52-year-old Gordon McGhee in his bedroom before turning on the gas cooker and lighting a dishcloth, seemingly to cause an explosion and destroy evidence of the killing.Mr McGhee, who had disturbed Bostock while he was attempting to swipe his stash of limited edition coins, was left covered in blood at his home in Colchester, Essex.Bostock denied but was convicted of murder and attempted arson by a jury at Ipswich Crown Court.The majority of Mr McGhee’s coin collection, the murder weapon and the clothes Bostock was wearing that night have never been found.Bostock was a collector of limited edition circulation coins, which included Beatrix Potter 50ps.He had been drinking with Mr McGhee and other friends in a block of flats in the early hours of 22 August last year before he sneaked into Mr McGhee’s flat to swipe the coins, the court heard.When Mr McGhee caught him red-handed, Bostock stabbed him 17 times, including in the face and neck, before fleeing on a bicycle.Footprints from his trainers were found traipsed around the flat. Bostock denied murder and claimed that one of the people drinking at the flat had worn his shoes then carried out the attack.Following the verdict yesterday, Judge David Goodin said the killing was “horrific” and that Bostock faced at least 30 years behind bars.Detective Chief Inspector Stuart Truss, of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, said: “I don’t believe that Bostock shows any remorse at all for taking Mr McGhee’s life.”His attack on Mr McGhee was senseless and brutal. He is an incredibly dangerous man and I hope he is sent to prison for a long time.”Bostock will be sentenced at Ipswich Crown Court on 19 March.

Man who drove into Charlottesville crowd convicted of firstdegree murder

first_imgCHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — A man who drove his car into counterprotesters at a 2017 white nationalist rally in Virginia was convicted Friday of first-degree murder, a verdict that local civil rights activists hope will help heal a community still scarred by the violence and the racial tensions it inflamed nationwide.A state jury rejected defense arguments that James Alex Fields Jr. acted in self-defense during a “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville on Aug. 12, 2017. Jurors also convicted Fields of eight other charges, including aggravated malicious wounding and hit and run.Fields, 21, drove to Virginia from his home in Maumee, Ohio, to support the white nationalists. As a large group of counterprotesters marched through Charlottesville singing and laughing, he stopped his car, backed up, then sped into the crowd, according to testimony from witnesses and video surveillance shown to jurors.Prosecutors told the jury that Fields was angry after witnessing violent clashes between the two sides earlier in the day. The violence prompted police to shut down the rally before it even officially began.Heather Heyer, a 32-year-old paralegal and civil rights activist, was killed, and nearly three dozen others were injured. The trial featured emotional testimony from survivors who described devastating injuries and long, complicated recoveries.last_img read more

Can HTML5 FutureProof Your Mobile Strategy

first_imgIn terms of dovetailing HTML5 development with standard app product development, Weinberg says the two are separate, but related, operations. “The apps are done in a separate group, but they’re aware of what we’re doing and we’re aware of what they’re doing. We all have shared but slightly different missions in this. For instance, an app in the future can be designed to link to the Web site for certain information or slideshows or content that the user wouldn’t have wanted to download as part of the native app. What’s really cool about that is it gives us a seamless consumer flow opportunity for delivering whatever content wherever they are whenever they need it through whatever device they have. My only issue right now is if we can go faster to implement more of the HTML5 products more comprehensively across all of the brands my life would be much better.”Next StepsGoing forward, Christie says HTML5 Web apps will be built on a case by case basis. The trigger will depend on the brand’s business model. “We are looking at HTML5 for some of the other FT Group titles. They’re more pure b-to-b titles. For some of them we are probably going to come out with more native apps. Some we might do Web apps. We’re looking at the business model for each of those and being quite pragmatic about it because for titles that have no registration, no subscription and are completely ad-based, you don’t have to do a Web app, you can do a native app. It just depends on where you see the future of each of the titles.”As an example, Christie cites the release of FT’s native How to Spend It app, which is available in Apple’s App Store. “From a business model point of view we don’t require registration or subscription and it’s completely advertising-based. It wasn’t going to compromise our business model to launch it in iTunes because we didn’t have an issue with the subscription process.”As for Weinberg, he sees HTML5 as a way to position the brands for whatever new features become available in the near future. “I’m looking down the road and saying this is going to create new creative capabilities that we haven’t had before and to the extent that it’s possible now, great. To the extent that it’s going to become possible later, all the better. But it does start to chart a new course for what the digital desktop is and how it works.” In the case of Hearst, the company is doing both. In September, the company announced that it was beginning the process of converting all of its magazine Web sites to HTML5. The plan was to build out specific components within the sites optimized with the new standard starting in the fourth quarter of this year and continue into 2012. The first to get the treatment was, which went live in September and became compatible with the majority of mobile devices—meaning rich media elements were touch and swipe enabled, among other features.“This project forms the basis for the kind of site structure that we expect to roll out to the rest of the network over the next six to 18 months,” Mark Weinberg, vice president of programming and product strategy for Hearst Digital Media, said at the time. “We have a number of sites that we’re in the process of redesigning and relaunching now and they will be relaunched fundamentally on the same kind of code base of HTML5 and they will be designed to be multi-platform. The kind of innovations we’ve baked into the Good Housekeeping relaunch will drive where we go with the rest of the network sites.”Going All-inThe decision to go all-in with the entire stable of Web sites was largely influenced by the belief that mobile is going to be a huge influence on digital content access in the near term. “The major motivator for us was both the recognition that it would create a more future-oriented programming and content delivery approach, given that it is an evolutionary step for the Web as a whole, but also, very importantly, that it was an evolutionary step that would allows us to have a functional site on iOS devices,” says Weinberg. “That’s what really got us started down the road—looking at the iOS devices and the clarity that had about not adopting Flash. Continuing down the road using Flash was not a good idea. While we’re still using Flash in some places, it was very clear that we needed to be compatible.”As the strategy got underway, Weinberg realized that ditching Flash was not the only benefit. Consumers, as they use their devices more often, are expecting to have the same functionality wherever they go on the Web. “Once we got going it became clear that it would allow us to do a number of other things, not the least of which was to be functional on touch-screen devices. And that I think is one of the really future-oriented aspects of this—that people are beginning to expect that. So this really meets consumer expectations. It makes us flexible and functional on all devices and it gives us the functionality that you get with HTML5 that its predecessor didn’t have,” he says.That freedom from the confines of proprietary formats and the ability to give customers what they expect were similar motivators for the Financial Times when it developed its Web app and snubbed Apple’s App Store. But fundamentally, it’s about the explosion in mobile usage. “An obvious trend is device proliferation,” says MB Christie, online product manager for the Financial Times. “Users expect to get everything everywhere. Everything they have on the desktop they are absolutely expecting to get on the phone and on the tablet. They just expect it to be there and don’t think about the fact that there’s a different transition, a different screen size and there will be different interactions [with the content].”Yet with that proliferation of devices comes a proliferation of formats and operating systems, each having unique access requirements. “So as publishers we have to think about how to do this quickly and get on all of the devices without breaking the bank,” says Christie. “Because you’ve got to make sure you’re on all the different sized tablets, all the different sized small screens and still on the desktop—all with an optimal user experience. Otherwise, your users will think, ‘They have a really nice Web site, but I can’t use it when I’m on the go.’ And then they’ll stop using you altogether. It will hurt your brand.”Christie notes that in order to cover the bases in terms of device coverage, HTML5 was the clear path. “You have to think about how you can do it across the board, which is what prompted us to start looking at an HTML5 solution very early on.”Is It Ready Yet? For now, publishers are taking one of two paths. They’re either rebuilding their Web sites with the HTML5 standard that lets users view them from a mobile or desktop machine, or they’re building HTML5 sites designed specifically for mobile devices as a separate option from providing apps through the app store. Now that the early enthusiasm behind generating magazine apps for tablet and smart phone devices has settled into a more or less pragmatic approach for publishers, a nagging question is bubbling ever closer to the top of digital content development efforts for the mobile platform: HTML5 or native apps? A concern from the start for Weinberg and Christie was HTML5’s readiness. The standard was essentially still under development and certainly not as established as HTML4 and there wasn’t yet a large base of developers skilled in the standard. “It does take some skilled developers, but I think the speciality is improving. The more demand there is in the market the more people will pick up the skills needed to do this,” says Christie. And then around that time Apple and the FT bumped heads on App store subscription terms and customer data. “That’s when we decided to seriously focus attention on the Web app,” says Christie. “What was great was we could sell the idea because we already had it in front of us. We weren’t scared, it didn’t feel like such a big leap for us because we had a working prototype.”According to Christie, an early challenge was figuring out how to make offline caching a smoother experience. Mobile browsers limit file sizes for downloading and in order to read the Financial Times offline, users had to take the semi-technical and extra step of boosting the database size to 50 MB. “We had to come up with a way for us to allow people to store a fairly large amount of data. They had to go through an extra step of saving a larger database than the browser would normally allow them to. Making the message user-friendly and not scary was challenging.”The step allows the user to save the file to their homescreen, enabling them to open the FT and read it whenever they want to.That local caching on the device is a critical feature, and one that differentiates a Web app from standard mobile sites, such as FT’s “The Web app has a lot more advantages. It allows for a lot more richness than the pure mobile site, We can have videos, images and most importantly, you can read it offline. That is a huge advantage of an app over a straight old mobile site. It’s more like a newspaper. You can take it on the train and read it,” says Christie.Where a reader is directed to depends on the device they’re using. “We can look at your device and the we serve you the right site, whether it’s or the Web app. We look at how smart your phone is and then we serve you the right thing based on that,” adds Christie.center_img At Hearst, the process of rebuilding the sites took a templated approach. Specific components were optimized for HTML5, such as promo players and other features, and then repeated throughout the rest of the sites. “We’re creating products, which are essentially features or functionality that can then be cascaded into all the sights in our network. It’s a build once, use many approach,” says Weinberg.For example, the promo player, which is basically a rotating slideshow that graphically features the top stories on the site, was one of the first to get the HTML5 treatment. “Historically, those were all Flash-based and after we developed the HTML5 promo player for Good Housekeeping, we cascaded that to all of our brands. Now, when you open any of the sites on an iPhone you will have a touch/swipe-enabled promo player that you can actually see. In the old version you couldn’t even see it because it was Flash. And it works on all phones, all devices,” says Weinberg.In all, Weinberg says the process of rolling out HTML5 is more of a design process than a technical one, and the templated approach as made it easier to apply the new features across the Hearst network of sites. “The team has made it very modular, so that the areas where we need to make these kinds of improvements in the near term we can make them in a more seamless way. The implementation of HTML5 is relatively easy. For example, we’re about to roll out our slideshow, or what we call a Flipbook, so there’s an HTML5 version of that that we’re cascading across the network. So by January almost all of the rest of our sites will have it. That’s how quickly it can cascade out. It’s much more of a design iteration than it is a technical challenge.”The FT began experimenting with an HTML5 Web app in the summer of 2010, says Christie. “We worked with one of our development partners and gave them time to play, really. It was just a few months after we’d launched the iPad app. We didn’t do anything really formal, and by January/February we had a pretty nice proof of concept going.” Browser compatibility had been one hurdle, but that has since been resolved says Weinberg. “So we weren’t really as worried at the time we were doing this work as those who came before us that people wouldn’t be able to see it or use it. In fact, we looked at it as the opposite, that this would increase the usability and increase the good functional behavior across more platforms and for more consumers in more circumstances. That actually proved out to be the bigger idea.”Another key motivator is the fragility of print revenues. As a stark reminder, consumer magazine ad pages fell 5.6 percent in the third quarter of this year, erasing the growth from the first six months of the year, per PIB numbers. Prior to the third quarter, consumer magazines enjoyed a run of growth for five consecutive quarters.“Print advertising money is no longer as easy to get as it used to be,” says Christie. “So that means that we all have to look for other solutions and digital is an obvious way. So we need to make sure that we are selling things on digital, whether it be ads, subscriptions or a combination. But in order to pay for the content, to pay our journalists, we absolutely need to make sure that we have a clear and strong digital strategy that will succeed and bring in the revenue needed to do so.”For the FT, the strategy is proving out, as is the theory that mobile is becoming a larger and larger component of media access. According to reports, the FT’s online operation now accounts for 30 percent of its revenues. Digital subscriptions were up 34 percent in the first half of 2011 and FT’s Web app reached the one millionth registrant milestone mid-November.Execution The latest Web standard has opened up new opportunities for building mobile-optimized content that, on the surface, frees it from the constraints of proprietary formats, such as Adobe’s Flash, and Apple’s onerous control of the app store retail environment and customer information. The Flash problem has largely been answered now that Adobe is no longer supporting it for mobile, but some publishers have been moving quickly to optimize both their sites in HTML5 and build products based on the standard to head off what they think is an inevitability: Mobile is going to be core to any content publisher’s product strategy going forward, and HTML5 is promising a seamless access standard that makes it easy for customers to view content on any mobile platform. “It did take a bit of a leap of faith,” adds Weinberg. “From what I understand there was a reluctance for people to move down this road for two pretty obvious reasons. One was it was not yet fully developed and so there were some concerns that people had about how the behaviors would work and what the issues might be; and there wasn’t as full of an understanding as there was with HTML4.”last_img read more

MI vs SRH Dream 11 and MPL Fantasy tips live stream preview

first_imgSunrisers Hyderabad, placed 4, will take on Mumbai Indians, placed 3, on the points table. A win for either team could well seal their spot in the playoffs, but both sides will aim for a top two finish which makes the battle an interesting affair. Delhi Capitals lost their game on Wednesday which gives Mumbai Indians a great chance to aim for the number 2 spot, and SRH, minus David Warner, will be a slightly weakened side.Predicted XI of both sides: Rohit SharmaIANSMumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma(c), Quinton de Kock(w), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Rahul Chahar, Beuran Hendricks, Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith MalingaSunrisers Hyderabad: Martin Guptill, Wriddhiman Saha(w), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson(c), Vijay Shankar, Mohammad Nabi, Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, K Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep SharmaFantasy tips and suggestions: Kane WilliamsonIANSWicket-keeper: Quinton de Kock has been superb for Mumbai Indians at the top of the order and should once again hold the key in the powerplay overs against the SRH pace bowlers. Kane Williamson could use spinners against him and this could be his biggest threat.Batsmen: Rohit Sharma has found his groove in the last couple of matches and in this crunch match, the skipper has to play a decisive knock for this side. Also, Ishan Kishan, who might play in this match, will hold the key against the SRH spinners.For the Sunrisers, Manish Pandey has to step up and continue with his good form for his side, more so in the absence of David Warner. Also, Martin Guptill, who might replace Warner, can be picked and can be the differentiating factor in the playing XI.All-rounders: Hardik Pandya has been in blistering form for Mumbai and should once again be the key man for the hosts, more so in the death overs. Also, he has to take up more responsibility with the ball.For SRH, Mohammad Nabi can be a good pick, as he more often than not picks up wickets in the powerplay overs. Also, he can be used as a pinch-hitter in the batting order.Spinners: Imran Tahir is a definite yes. Also, young Rahul Chahar has been a revelation for Mumbai this season and should get the nod to feature in the playing XI.Seamers: Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah – two bowlers who love bowling with each other will have to be the wicket-takers for their respective sides if they have to clinch the match and make it to the playoffs.last_img read more

Diljit Dosanjhs epic reaction when Sunny Leone touched him for the first

first_imgSunny Leone, Diljit DosanjhYouTube ScreenshotThere’s no second thought that Diljit Dosanjh must have had a blast shooting with Sunny Leone in Arjun Patiala’s song Crazy Habibi Vs Decent Munda. And we don’t even blame him if the Punjabi singer-turned-actor gets as smitten by Bollywood’s new generation Laila as everyone else in this world.As we all know that when it comes to projecting your feelings to the girl you are crushing on, Diljit is the one person who you can look up to. We all have seen how Diljit would storm Kylie Jenner’s Instagram and leave a romantic comment in Punjabi. But when Diljit was seen dancing around Sunny in Crazy Habibi song, she made him blush like a tomato with her magical touch.So when Diljit came across a meme featuring him and Sunny Leone about that reaction when a girl touch you for the first time, he couldn’t resist himself from sharing it on his Instagram timeline. Arjun Patiala is a comedy film set in Patiala. The quirky film showcases the story of a police officer (Diljit) who is known for his quirky, original and unusual ways to solve crime and how his life changes when he meets a news reporter (Kriti Sanon). The film, which also stars Varun Sharma and directed by Rohit Jugraj, is all set to release on July 26.last_img read more

A look at Malwarebytes 351

first_imgA look at Malwarebytes 3.5.1 by Martin Brinkmann on May 23, 2018 in Security – 69 commentsI have to admit that I did not really use Malwarebytes all that much anymore on my Windows machines after the release of version 3.0 of the application.Core reasons were super high memory usage and stability issues which the first couple of updates that the company released to remedy the situation did not fix.It did not help that the company released a broken update in early January of 2018 that caused high RAM and CPU usage; the update was pulled quickly but the damage was done.Malwarebytes 3.5.1Malwarebytes released version 3.5.1 of the client software for Windows recently; reason enough to take another look at the software program to find out what has changed, improved, and what has not.If you have not used Malwarebytes for some time you may notice that the interface changed slightly.The right sidebar content changed; not dramatically but still noticeable. The real-time protection modules have toggles now to turn functionality on or off whereas Malwarebytes used less visible text-only information previously for that.While it is not a lot easier to toggle a feature on or off, it is easier to find out if a feature is enabled or not at the time.One of the main issues that I had with Malwarebytes 3 was the application’s high memory use. The situation has not improved all that much unfortunately; a quick Windows Task Manager check revealed that the Malwarebyte’s processes used roughly 280 Megabytes on the test system with the interface displayed and about 220 Megabytes with the interface not displayed.The new version fixed an issue in the program’s anti-ransomware module that caused high memory and CPU usage, and crashes related to the web protection module. Some users reported abnormally high memory usage and this may have fixed the issue.  The two updates that Malwarebytes released in March for the application did fix several crash and stability issues as well.Stability-wise, progress appears to have been made. The program was responsive both when it ran in the background but also when it was scanning the system or performing other operations. So, if you dropped the program because of stability issues, you may want to give it another try to see if those are resolved for you as well especially with the crash related fixes in the three releases of 2018.Malwarebtyes 3.5.1 supports Hypervisor Code Integrity (HVCI) and Device Guard, requirements to meet Microsoft’s compliance requirements according to the official release notes.Closing wordsMemory usage is still high but stability appears to have improved with the latest releases. If you suffered from stability issues for the most part, now may be a good time to give Malwarebytes another try to see how it performs with all the fixes included.Now You: Do you run Malwarebytes or another software?SummaryArticle NameA look at Malwarebytes 3.5.1DescriptionMalwarebytes released version 3.5.1 of the client software for Windows recently; reason enough to take another look at the software program to find out what has changed, improved, and what has not.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

luxury traveltravel trendsVirtuoso

first_imgluxury traveltravel trendsVirtuoso There are currently 120 Australian-based luxury travel advisors in Las Vegas, attending the 29th annual Virtuoso Travel Week event, taking place from 12-18 August. The opportunity to join over 5,500 travel professionals from across the world has led to a fair amount of networking and brainstorming with Virtuoso travel advisors putting forward their collective vibe on the latest trends for high-end Australian travellers. With its agency members representing the strongest sales force in luxury travel, Virtuoso is uniquely qualified to anticipate coming trends and is recognised as an authoritative voice within the industry. A new survey of the network’s professional travel advisors in Australia has revealed where upscale travellers will be heading this summer – and top of the list, not surprisingly, is cruise!“The growth in momentum for cruising shows no sign of slowing as the cruise sector again tops the survey results,” Virtuoso Asia Pacific Managing Director, Michael Londregan said from Las Vegas today. “The cruise sector has comprehensively diversified to ensure they have product for every segment of the market with smaller ship luxury, expedition, river and sailing vessels, and Australians are in love with cruising boasting the strongest per capita cruise markets in the world.“In the past 12 months alone, we have been privileged to experience the arrival of the most luxurious cruise vessels ever built and many of our travel agency members, and their clients, have already seen the new level of luxury on offer. “The cabins are better described as elegant suites, the dining is delivered in boutique world-class restaurants and the spa facilities are complete on-board retreats.“This new class of upscale cruising continues to provide the ideal platform to explore unique corners of the world with touring that delivers expert insights and authentic experiences for the entire family.”Virtuoso’s survey of Australian based luxury travel advisors also revealed:• Cruising is king: Luxury cruising is the number one travel trend and, when combined with adventure, ocean and river, there is no holding back Australia’s love of cruising holidays. Multigenerational travel follows, with beach resort stays taking third place.• We like our icons: The Great Barrier Reef is the number one domestic destination for luxury travellers, followed by The Kimberleys and Australian coastal cruising, and Uluru takes third place.• We love Europe: If your social media feed left you thinking all your friends are holidaying in Europe, Virtuoso’s research backs this up. Italy is the leading destination for Australians, followed by Spain (tied with the United States) and Croatia. Australians also love Japan, which took third place with Croatia.• Experience is luxury: The chance to explore new destinations is the number one motivator for Australian luxury travellers and these travellers are also looking to have authentic experiences, while relaxation and rest was the third most popular reason Virtuoso clients are travelling right now.The survey also shows Australian luxury travel advisors are enjoying strong sales growth, with 75% reporting an increase in sales on the previous year.IMAGE: Cruising is King – The Colonnade onboard the luxury Seabourn Encorelast_img read more
