Civilian military leaders must do more to bring stability to GuineaBissau –

5 November 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has urged both the civilian and military leadership in Guinea-Bissau to show commitment to achieving long-lasting stability in the West African country, and to restore the rule of law by fighting impunity and curbing organized crime. In his latest report on Guinea-Bissau to the Security Council, covering the four months since 24 June, Mr. Ban also called on the Guinea-Bissau’s leadership to forge a national consensus on the best way to ensure the stabilization for the country.Guinea-Bissau has been beset by coups and political instability since it became an independent country in the early 1970s. The United Nations has an integrated peacebuilding office on the ground, UNOGBIS, tasked with helping to promote stability.In April, troops under the command of the then-Deputy Chief of General Staff, Major General António N´djai, took control of the armed forces’ headquarters, detaining the Chief of General Staff, Vice Admiral José Zamora Induta, and briefly holding Prime Minister Carlos Gomes Júnior.“Established laws must be applied and fundamental principles of the rule of law, such as the duty to ensure fair legal proceedings and the right to defence, must be respected,” the Secretary-General wrote, while also noting that the consequences of the events of 1 April, such as reduced donor support, confirm that political and security instability can have a major negative impact on economic prospects.Presenting the Secretary-General’s report to the Council today, his Special Representative for Guinea-Bissau, Joseph Mutaboba, said the failure to release Vice Admiral Induta, as ordered by the military court, demonstrated the continued dominance of the military leadership over the judiciary.“It will undoubtedly increase the reluctance of some international partners to engage with the authorities of Guinea-Bissau as it underlines the lack of civilian oversight over the armed forces and the existing environment of impunity in the country,” Mr. Mutaboba told Council members.In his report, Mr. Ban also pointed out that drug trafficking and organized crime continue to pose a serious risk to the stability of Guinea-Bissau and to the West African sub-region as a whole. He said that while the authorities of Guinea-Bissau should continue to demonstrate, through concrete action, their commitment to tackling this phenomenon – the international community also had a role to play.“There is a need for the international community to step up efforts to fight this menace in all its aspects and, in particular, to enhance national and regional capacities to do so,” the Secretary-General wrote.On the economic front, despite the country’s challenging political and security situation, Mr. Ban noted that the Government of Guinea-Bissau has continued to make encouraging economic recovery efforts, including steps that would make it eligible for international debt forgiveness under the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries Initiative, and he encouraged the authorities to continue pursuing economic and fiscal reform. read more

For Big Ten mens soccer tournament parity is everything

#4 Michigan vs. #5 Indiana Michigan (8-6-3. 3-3) comes into the tournament after winning four of six of its last games. Sophomore forward James Murphy is leading the team with four goals and two assists. Michigan was the third seed in last year’s tournament. The Wolverines finished as the runner-up after losing to MSU in the finals.Coach Chaka Daley said it is hard to prepare for consecutive matches in a short period of time.“You prepare for one game in one day. I don’t think you can certainly overlook one opponent. We certainly are not,” Daley said.Indiana (6-11-1, 2-4) is the reigning NCAA champion. IU was the preseason No. 1, but fell out of the top spot after consecutive losses against University of California-Los Angeles, University of Alabama-Birmingham, and West Virginia in September.Senior midfielder Nikita Kotlov leads the Hoosiers with five goals and 3 assists. Last season, IU was the fourth seed in the Big Ten tournament but lost in the first round to MSU, 2-1.IU senior midfielder Harrison Petts said the team has to play “one game at a time.”“We need to win (the Big Ten tournament) to move on to the NCAA tournament,” Petts said. “We won’t hold back. It’s win or go home for us.”Michigan defeated Indiana earlier this season by a score of 2-1 in Ann Arbor, Mich. The match is set for 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. #3 Michigan State vs. #6 Ohio StateMichigan State (10-4-3, 3-2-1) is the reigning Big Ten tournament champion. The Spartans were awarded the fifth seed in last season’s tournament.Spartan coach Damon Rensing said tournament results depend solely on the first match.“It’s cliché, but the first game is the most important. Everyone plays their best that first game and we play Ohio State, who is at home and playing for their season,” Rensing said.This season MSU is lead by redshirt-junior forward Tim Kreutz with eight goals and four assists.Ohio State (5-7-5, 1-3-2) comes into the tournament after winning three of its last four games. Freshman forward Danny Jensen leads the team with three goals and three assists. Redshirt-junior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov has also been keeping OSU alive by recording eight shutouts and leads the Big Ten in goals against average, save percentage, saves and saves per game.“Going back into Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium, it’s our home field, defending our home turf, and we’ve done well here this year. We have a winning record at home,” Ivanov said.Last season, OSU finished last in the conference going 0-4-2 and was the seventh seed in the tournament. The Buckeyes lost in the first round to Northwestern 2-0.Buckeye coach John Bluem said it takes a little something special to win in tournaments.“A lot of it comes down to mental approach and if you’re physically ready to battle, because that’s what it takes this time of year,” Bluem said.Ohio State and Michigan State played to a 1-1 draw in their first meeting in East Lansing, Mich. Oct. 13.The match is set to begin at 2 p.m. Wednesday.

OSU lost, 1-0.Credit: Sally Xia / Lantern photographerSoccer season runs into the early months of winter, so when the Big Ten men’s soccer tournament begins this week, expect some frigid excitement in Columbus. Temperatures are expected to be just warm enough to melt any leftover snow at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium, Wednesday, when the tournament is scheduled to kick off at 2 p.m. with Michigan State versus Ohio State.“There’s just something about it when the weather gets cold … the ball is hard, the grass is crisp and it feels like tournament time,” Wisconsin coach John Trask said.This year marks the third time since 2001 Ohio State has hosted the Big Ten Tournament. The tournament is scheduled for Nov. 13-17. #1 Penn State First Round ByePenn State (11-5-1, 5-1) clinched a share of its second consecutive Big Ten conference title and the top overall seed in the conference tournament.Coach Bob Warming said the team learned last year that a first round bye does not guarantee a tournament championship, after losing in their first tournament game to Michigan State 3-1.“We have a first round bye. It’s the second year in a row and the only time we’ve gotten it twice in a row,” Warming said. “It didn’t help us last year at all and (Michigan State) deserved to win.”PSU comes into the tournament on a two game, double overtime losing streak, dropping games against OSU and Akron.Warming said the level of play in the Big Ten is a tremendous competition.“In this league, we all recognize the margin of victory is one possession,” Warming said. “What I mean by that is it’s won by one goal and an incredible amount of games have been won in overtime.”PSU is slated to face the winner of UM and IU on Friday at noon. #2 Wisconsin vs. #7 NorthwesternWisconsin (13-3-2, 4-2) comes into the tournament as the second seed with an 8-1-1 record in its last 10 matches.Badger coach John Trask said his team is peaking at the right time.“We’re playing great soccer,” Trask said. “I think we seem to be improving every training session.”Leading the Badgers is senior midfielder/forward Nick Janus with nine goals and two assists. Last year, Wisconsin was the sixth seed and was bounced from the tournament with a loss to UM in the first round.Northwestern (9-6-3, 1-4-1) goes from first to worst after earning a share of the 2012 Big Ten regular season title, but this year, coming into the Big Ten Tournament as the seventh seed. The Wildcats are led by sophomore forward Joey Calistri who has 12 goals and four assists.“We have to go into every game with a good game plan and we have to play smart,” Calistri said. “We’re excited. It’s a great opportunity and we aren’t taking it lightly. Somebody’s got to do it.”Last year, the wildcats reached the semi-finals in the Big Ten tournament before losing to Michigan, 3-0.Coach Tim Lenahan said records are thrown out the window in postseason play.“The thing about the Big Ten with men’s soccer is that it is the only conference in the country where every team believes it will win the tournament and can win it,” Lenahan said. “No matter the record, they are still capable of winning it all. The parity is everything.”Wisconsin beat Northwestern in their first meeting of the season, 1-0 in Evanston, Ill., Nov. 3. The match is set for 7 p.m. read more

Cambridge spy seminars hit by whispers of Russian links as three intelligence

first_imgBut he admitted Russian involvement was “possible” amid a “cascade” of Russian intelligence-related activities.He said: “After the heady days of post-Cold War and the belief that we were moving the Russians into a rules-based international system, we seem to be going very rapidly in the opposite direction.”Whether it’s cyber activities, their apparent general malevolence and disruption, what you’re hearing is alleged to have taken place in the United States – and there is no reason to suggest the United States has made this up – it’s a catalogue of activities.“Television outlets like Russia Today are running around all over the place. There is a lot of Russian activity. It is perfectly plain that the Russians are in a hyperactive mode and this seems to be on the face of it orchestrated by Mr Putin, and frankly I find it very worrying.”Cambridge University declined to comment. Sir Richard and Mr Martland have been approached for comment but have not replied.Gleb Cheglakov, who is believed to have set up Veruscript with his wife, said it would be editorially independent of the organisation. He did not comment on the alleged link with the Russian government.

They would use publishing or creative industries to infiltrate, it is very possible they might be doing this.”The warnings came as Government sources acknowledged for the first time that Russia is waging a “campaign” of propaganda and unconventional warfare, including fake espionage, misinformation, cyber attacks and fake news, against Britain. It is understood that intelligence officers and senior civil servants voiced their concerns during a meeting at the Cabinet Office two months ago, which discussed the growing scale of the Russian threat. Conservative MP Dominic Grieve, who chairs the House of Commons Intelligence and Security select committee, said he did not wish to speculate as to the precise reasons for Sir Richard’s departure. …unacceptable Russian influence on the groupStefan Halper The concerns emerged after a number of experts unexpectedly resigned from their positions at the Cambridge Intelligence Seminar (CIS), an academic forum on the Western spy world. The men – former MI6 chief Sir Richard Dearlove, Stefan Halper, a former policy adviser at the White House, and historian Peter Martland – are said to have left amid concerns that the Kremlin is behind a newly-established intelligence journal, which provides funding to the group.Mr Halper told earlier reports that his decision to step down was due to “unacceptable Russian influence” on the group. Last night, a former KGB spy chief said it is entirely possible the experts’ alleged fears are true.The CIS was set up by official MI5 historian Professor Christopher Andrew. Seminars, which take place on Fridays at the university’s Corpus Christi college, are advertised on the university website, with previous attendees including Mike Flynn, Donald Trump’s choice as new national security adviser for the US, and Dr Paul Martin, the ex-director of parliamentary security. Suspicions were allegedly raised after claims a new digital publishing house called Veruscript, which helps cover some of the CIS’s costs, may be acting as a front for the Russian intelligence services.The publishing house, which, according to its website, is based in London, is also publishing a new journal, the Journal of Intelligence and Terrorism Studies. Some of those involved are thought to be concerned that Russia may attempt to use the link to the seminars to influence sensitive debates on national defence and security, sources told the Financial Times.Last night, experts warned it was feasible for the Russians to be involved, despite no concrete evidence yet found to suggest the claims are true.Oleg Gordievsky, who ran the KGB’s London bureau and was a double agent for the British intelligence service from 1974, said Russians were targeting creative industries but in larger cities, such as London.last_img read more

Pioneering stem cell work wins Nobel Prize for researchers

first_imgMEDICAL RESEARCHERS from Japan and Britain have won the Nobel Prize in medicine for work in cell programming, a frontier that has raised dreams of replacement tissue for people crippled by disease.Shinya Yamanaka of Japan and Sir John Gurdon of Britain found that adult cells can be transformed back to an infant state called stem cells, the key ingredient in the vision of regenerative medicine.“Their findings have revolutionised our understanding of how cells and organisms develop,” the Nobel jury declared. “By reprogramming human cells, scientists have created new opportunities to study diseases and develop methods for diagnosis and therapy.”Among those who acclaimed the award were Britain’s Royal Society, Ian Wilmut, “father” of Dolly the cloned sheep, and a leading ethicist, who said it eased a storm about the use of embryonic cells.Stem cells are precursor cells which differentiate into the various organs of the body. They have stirred huge excitement, with hopes that they can be coaxed into growing into replacement tissue for victims of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other diseases.Gurdon, 79, said he was grateful but also surprised by the honour, since his main research was done more than 40 years ago.In 1962, he discovered that the DNA code in the nucleus of an adult frog cell held all the information to develop into every kind of cell. This meant that an adult cell could in essence be reprogrammed.His landmark discovery was initially met with scepticism, as the journey from immature to specialised cell was previously deemed irreversible.“I’m amazed and immensely grateful and astonished that they should recognise work done such a long time ago,” Gurdon told Swedish Radio. ”Of course I’m extremely grateful to be recognised with Shinya Yamanaka who’s done this wonderful work.”“It is particularly pleasing to see how purely basic research, originally aimed at testing the genetic identity of different cell types in the body, has turned out to have clear human health prospects,” he later told reporters in London.‘A waste of time’ as a teenagerBased at Cambridge University, Gurdon is fond of recalling that his school tutor told him when he was 15 that it would be a “total waste of time” to pursue a career in science, and credits his mother with encouraging him to follow his passion.More than four decades later, in 2006, Yamanaka, now 50, discovered how mature cells in mice could be turned back to their youthful state using a batch of reprogramming genes.The advantage of this would be to avert the need to use stem cells taken from early-stage embryos. These are hugely versatile but have stirred ethical controversy.“This is not only a giant leap for science, it is a giant leap for mankind. Yamanaka and Gurdon have shown how science can be done ethically,” a professor of practical ethics at the University of Oxford, Julian Savulescu, told the Science Media Centre in London.Yamanaka “deserves not only a Nobel Prize for Medicine, but a Nobel Prize for Ethics,” he said.Yamanaka, a professor at Kyoto University, has pointedly warned of the ethical controversies of science.“We should limit the application of technology to treatment or what can make patients happier,” he has said. “We may be able to generate new life (with this technique), so we are presented with another ethical issue.”Stem-cell research is still at a very early stage, and only a tiny number of human trials have taken place. In the field of so-called induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, for which Yamanaka was singled out for the Nobel, work is still only in the lab.He was modest about the honour on Monday, telling reporters he was “just an obscure researcher” who planned to carry on his research. ”I really feel that I have to realise a medical application and contribute to society as soon as possible,” he said.The pair had been among the frontrunners for a Nobel after they won the prestigious Lasker Prize in 2009 and Yamanaka shared the €1.2 million Millennium Technology Prize earlier this year with a software engineer.Because of the economic crisis, the Nobel Foundation has slashed its prize sum to eight million Swedish kronor (€930,000) per award, down from the 10 million kronor (€1.16 million) awarded since 2001.- © AFP, 2012last_img read more

Bigelows inflatable ISS module announced intended to test inflatable modules

first_imgRecently, NASA announced that they awarded Bigelow Aerospace a $17.8 million contract to construct an inflatable module for the International Space Station. Speculation suggested that the module would be the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM), which can be viewed as something of a glorified, multipurpose storage facility. Today, NASA and Bigelow had their joint conference announcing the details of the contract and module, and that previous speculation proved correct.The BEAM module will be built by Bigelow, but launched to the ISS by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, which will house the module within an unpressurized cargo hold. Once the rocket arrives at the ISS, a robotic arm will attach the inflatable module to an open area of the station’s Node 3 connecting module. The astronauts on the station will then inflate the BEAM, which weighs around 3,000 pounds, and measures in at about 13 x 10.5 feet. The launch is planned for some time in 2015.Rather than shoving a popup laboratory into the BEAM, or using it for an expandable living or sleeping habitat, NASA is simply using it to test the viability of inflatable modules, as well as to become more familiar with the technology.Aside from nabbing a high-profile contract, Bigelow is also invested in a successful BEAM experiment because it serves as a testing ground for their larger BA 330 module, which is another inflatable module that can be linked with other BA 330s to form something of an inflatable space complex.Reportedly, Bigelow’s inflatable modules not only protect against micrometeorites, but offer “enhanced protection” from radiation. The habitats are also cheaper than the standard ones found in space today, which is another reason why NASA will be testing the BEAM, and why if successful, Bigelow’s test-run could pave the way for a revolution in space travel and habitation.via NASAlast_img read more

Un projet dalimentation en eau potable inauguré en Cisjordanie

OneHanded JoyCon Mod Makes Nintendo Switch Even More Convenient

first_imgStay on target The Nintendo Switch’s signature modular design allows it to be played in a variety of configurations. You can play it as a handheld. You can play it propped up on a table. You can play it on your TV. You can play with a traditional controller or with two detached Joy-Con controllers or with a single sideways Joy-Con.However, even with all that adaptability, the Switch out of the box still can’t handle everyone’s accessibility needs. That’s where modders come in. A heartwarming new Nintendo Switch mod making the rounds online today is a peripheral for holding both Joy-Con in one hand. The purpose? This makes it much easier for physically disabled players to reach all the buttons necessary for playing wonderful yet complex games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.These are actually several peripherals. One shell bundles two Joy-Con together side by side, almost like the regular pro grip. The bumpers extend certain buttons to aid in this. However, the other adapter angles the controllers in such a way that hitting all of the buttons and using motion controls with one hand becomes a lot more convenient.In pictures, these don’t look like comfortable or ideal ways to play to me, but creator/engineer Julio Vazquez says “week of research and lots of failed prototypes” delivered a final product that’s “ easy to print, lightweight and practical.” At least it’s less cumbersome than Splatoon 2’s voice chat solution.Vazquez designed the adapter for his friend Rami Wehbe after Wehbe lost the use of his right hand (and ability to play Zelda) following a cerebrovascular accident. However, the adapters are also available to 3D print through Thingiverse, allowing anyone interested to give them a shot. The AbleGamers charity is already printing out adapters for its community.Everyone should be able to enjoy video games, but sometimes life doesn’t work like that. Just ask virtual reality fans in wheelchairs. Fortunately, there are fans and creators willing to fill in the gaps and help all of us have fun.Want to learn more?

Young entrepreneur Offers affordable tailoring online

first_imgAiming to give a tech-boost to the traditional tailor-made clothing, a young entrepreneur has set up a new startup D For Darzi that will cater to the poor tailoring community across the Indian subcontinent. Set up by journalist turned entrepreneur Saira Aslam, the startup has already collaborated with renowned beauty expert Blossom Kochhar, while designer and activist Sanjana Jon also promised a future collaboration.After a community event held in Delhi recently, D For Darzi said it will launch its e-commerce website later this month to make custom tailoring affordable and easy to order. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfIt invited public participation from women of all ages, backgrounds and colour to model for it and received response from many small and big cities across India. Aslam recalled how an NGO worker had told her 5-6 years ago about the tailors in the interior areas of Bihar and Bengal where they were paid some 25 paise for the stitching of one blouse. And they used to stitch nearly a hundred blouses a day.”I kept thinking what amount they actually took home. The figure of 25 rupees for stitching a hundred blouses was outrageous and kept haunting me. Even if the figure improved in these past few years, it wouldn’t have improved dramatically. We all know about Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh and the crammed conditions under which many tailors work even in India. Through D For Darzi, we want to identify and partner with this poor tailoring community and improve their standards of living,” she said and invited NGOs and investors for collaboration. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveHayat Rafique, Director-Planning and Operation, said that they are trying to fit into small, medium and large size of clothes. The startup also conducted a photo shoot as a celebration of the natural beauty of women and to encourage them to shed inhibitions around their body type and pose as models.”I thought having community ambassadors for the photo shoot was a great idea as it would ensure participation of women and men from diverse backgrounds. The students and trainers from Blossom Kochhar College of Creative Arts and Design did the make up hair of all participants of the community initiative. I wish D For Darzi that seeks to help the poor tailoring community of the Indian subcontinent, all the best in future,” Kochhar said.last_img read more

6 Tech Solutions for Managing Sales Leads

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global July 31, 2012 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Sure, you have sales leads. But to turn them into actual revenue, you need to efficiently manage them and develop relationships. That means separating real prospects from duds, organizing all the data and tracking your key leads on a regular basis.Sales management apps such as San Francisco-based Salesforce.com, Cupertino, Calif.-based SugarCRM or Bellevue, Wash.-based Smartsheet Sales Pipeline attempt to streamline this, but deploying a big brand-name customer relationship management (CRM) tool can be overwhelming as a first step to developing and using sales leads more efficiently.Luckily, small firms can find simpler ways to boost their sales efforts. Often, it’s as easy as using existing tools, such as email, in a new way, or adding a few carefully selected sales apps.Here are six ways you can use technology to maximize your sales pipeline:1. Equip your inbox for sales duty.Several tools can upgrade popular email services to help you make smarter decisions about your messages or automate time-wasting tasks.San Francisco-based Rapportive and Boomerang, by Mountain View, Calif.-based Baydin, build CRM tools directly into Gmail. Rapportive is a free tool that automatically displays information about contacts from online sources such as Facebook and LinkedIn. For $5 per month, Boomerang can schedule unlimited emails to go out at a specified future date, and it can make important emails you need to be reminded about show up at the top of your inbox.WriteThat.Name by Paris-based Kwaga updates contacts based on email signatures; it’s free for as many as 40 contacts a month. Boston-based SaneBox, which starts at $4.95 per month, is an advanced email filter that categorizes emails by importance.Related: Why Free Apps Can Be Time Wasters, Not Productivity Boosters 2. Look for hidden sales functions.Dig deeper into the features of the apps you already use. For example, with Google Groups, tucked away in Google Apps, you can quickly share contacts and emails with specific groups of employees. Simply create the group within Google — say, everyone working on a specific sales project — and then forward emails or share contacts without adding each member to a new thread. Apple’s Address Book has a useful “notes” function for storing relationship statuses, company Web pages and instant message handles. You just need to fill out the various contact fields. After that, you can share contacts via email and sync with your other Apple devices.3. Capture and track leads and ideas.Make the most of your team’s leads, schemes and brainstorms by keeping them in one place. For example, you can set up a shared spreadsheet within Google Drive or a file-sharing service such as San Mateo, Calif.-based SugarSync. But there are countless document collaboration tools, including WindowsLive, which offers Microsoft Office Web apps, and similar services such as ThinkFree by South Korea-based Hancom Inc. and Adobe’s Online Document Sharing — which offer free versions.Mindmapping software, which turns information and ideas into visual diagrams, is another way teams can store ideas. Two such programs are Mindjet Connect by San Francisco-based Mindjet, which starts at $9 per user per month for businesses, and TeamBrain by TheBrain Technology in Marina del Rey, Calif. which can be used with the TheBrain software, available for a $219 one-time purchase. Related: Six Ideas for Finding New Sales Leads4. Make your smartphone a sales tool.Smartr Contacts, by San Francisco-based Xobni, is a free tool that can make your address book smarter by shifting the focus to managing relationships instead of email addresses and phone numbers. Similar to Rapportive, Smartr Contacts pulls together updates from social media, recent emails and other contact data in one place, letting users get up to speed on who they are communicating with.5. Get a better CRM system.Relying on email and smartphone address books isn’t always adequate to meet the needs of complex sales campaigns. But a number of cloud-based tools can help guide sales efforts. Solve360 by Canada-based Norada Corporation and Capsule CRM by U.K.-based Zestia can potentially track thousands of contacts.Starting at $39, Solve360 can store 10,000 contacts and 50 projects. It includes such features as shared email history and secure project blogs. The free version of Capsule CRM includes 250 contacts and unlimited deal tracking.6. Integrate social media.Social media can be fertile sales ground, but they must be managed properly. You can generate leads by monitoring your company’s social media activity with Web-based tools such as Chicago-based Sprout Social, which starts at $39 per month. You will get a better idea of who is using — or at least talking about — your services and keep track of your list of Facebook friends and Twitter followers.Radian6 by Salesforce is a “social listening” service that can monitor keywords on blogs and social media, as well as spotlight people who might be interested in your product. Prices start at $600 per month. Another option is Providence, R.I.-based Batchbook, a social CRM tool that starts at $20 a month and connects with customers’ Facebook accounts. This kind of built-in social data can help you build rapport with clients and keep that information in a single, convenient place.Related: Seven Essential Apps for Your Sales Team  5 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Windows 10 Build 14342 finally changes how extensions are installed

first_imgWindows 10 Build 14342 finally changes how extensions are installed by Martin Brinkmann on May 11, 2016 in Internet Explorer – Last Update: July 05, 2017 – 6 commentsMicrosoft released the new Windows 10 Insider Build 14342 yesterday along with a new cumulative update for Windows 10 and security patches for all supported versions of Windows.The new version is only available for devices subscribed to the Insider Preview Fast Ring, the cutting edge public preview channel that gets changes first before they are rolled out to the slow and release preview channel.The new build features a number of improvements and fixes as usually. Probably most important from a user’s point of view are Microsoft Edge improvements.Edge Extensions are installed from StoreMicrosoft Edge supported extensions for a short while only. Up until now, extensions had to be sideloaded into the browser by running a local installer or selecting a local folder the extension has been extracted to previously.Not too bad for a first test version but not really comfortable, and not what Microsoft plans to deliver when the feature his the stable version of Windows 10.Extensions support has been improved in build 14342 of Windows 10 as extensions are now installed from Windows Store directly.It is still possible to sideload extensions, but the main method of installing extensions in Microsoft Edge has now been implemented.This works currently by opening the extensions feature page on the Microsoft website. There you find listed all available extensions and a short description for each.A click on “open in store” opens the Windows Store application and in it the extension’s listing. You can hit the “free” button right away to install it in Microsoft Edge, or read the full description and user ratings first instead.The installation happens in the background but Edge displays a prompt afterwards that highlights that a new extension has been installed.The prompt lists all permissions the extension requests, and provides you with options to turn it on or keep it turned off instead.All installed extensions and their state are listed when you select menu (the three dots) and then extensions from the menu that opens up.There you find the option to (side)load extensions from the local system directly as well, and to get extensions from the Windows Store which currently opens the preview page on the Microsoft website that highlights available extensions.An options icon is displayed next to extensions when you hover over them, and a click on that opens an overview page listing the extension’s permissions, and option to turn it on or off, to display its icon in the address bar, to open the full options the extensions ships with, and an option to uninstall the extension from Microsoft Edge.This moves Edge’s extensions system one step closer to release. We still don’t know how Microsoft plans to present available extensions to users.Will they be listed on the Microsoft website similar to how extensions are listed on the Chrome Web Store or Mozilla AMO? Or will they be listed only in the Windows Store application, and there likely in their own category?The new build shipped with two additional Edge improvements. The first introduces real-time web notifications in Microsoft Edge that allow websites to send notifications using the Action Center provided that they have been granted permissions to do so.The second brings swipe navigation to Microsoft Edge so that you can swipe to the left or right to navigate back or forward.Now You: What’s your take on extensions in Edge so far?SummaryArticle NameWindows 10 Build 14342 finally changes how extensions are installedDescriptionMicrosoft released the Windows 10 Insider Build 14342 yesterday along which brings improvements to Microsoft Edge’s extensions system.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks TEchnology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
