Apples stock sours Microsofts soars Say what

first_imgMicrosoft is close to overtaking Apple as the world’s most valuable publicly traded company.The market closed Tuesday with Microsoft just a half per cent behind Apple in market value.That Microsoft is even close to eclipsing Apple — and did so briefly this week — would have been surprising not long ago as rival tech giants Amazon and Google were the more likely favourites for catching up to the iPhone maker.It’s a sign of Microsoft’s steady resilience under CEO Satya Nadella as it transitions into a cloud computing provider more focused on long-term business contracts than consumer demand.That helped shield it from holiday season turbulence and U.S.-China trade war jitters affecting Apple and other tech giants.Matt O’Brien, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Five takeaways from Tulsa Young players still maturing secondary may be best

OSU redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) scores his first rushing touchdown of the game during the third quarter against Tulsa on Sept.10. The Buckeyes won 48-3. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorThe first half of Saturday’s game against Tulsa might have seemed like a completely different contest from the second half. Regardless of how the team’s performance is viewed by the media and fans, the Buckeyes picked up a hard-fought win against the Golden Hurricane to improve to 2-0.Although the end score was 48-3, OSU only led 13-3 with three minutes left in the first half. The offense was struggling to put points on the board, and Tulsa was giving the Buckeye defense a run for its money.With much of the playmaking coming from the defensive side of the ball, here are five takeaways from Saturday’s game against Tulsa.Secondary the key to OSU’s early successBoth games played by the Scarlet and Gray have come against opponents well outside the top 25. However, both Bowling Green and Tulsa have potent passing attacks, with each one ranking fifth and 11th in the nation, respectively, in terms of pass yards per game last season.Combined, the Buckeyes have only given up 302 passing yards in the first two games — an average of 151 yards per game. Last year, the Buckeyes gave up an average of 184.5 passing yards per game.Three starters may be gone from the secondary, but there has been little drop off for OSU this season.  Both redshirt sophomore cornerback Marshon Lattimore and redshirt sophomore safety Malik Hooker have five picks combined through two games, which puts them both near the top of the national rankings in terms of interceptions.Although a few plays against Tulsa made the OSU secondary look vulnerable, the unit has played at a high level so far this year. But, Hooker is not satisfied just yet.“I think we can’t sit with where we’re at now,” Hooker said. “We have to get better and watch film for the games coming up next week.”Defensive line may struggle without Tracy SprinkleAlthough the defense for OSU has been playing tough and basically dominating opponents this season, there were a few runs against Tulsa that had Buckeye fans holding their breathe. The absence of redshirt junior defensive tackle Tracy Sprinkle could be felt on those runs, even though redshirt freshman Dre’Mont Jones and Davon Hamilton have received praise from their teammates. On run plays up-the-middle during the first half, Tulsa junior running back D’Angelo Brewer had multiple carries where he hit the hole with the nearest defender at least three yards away. That open space allowed the Golden Hurricane to pick up a couple first downs, extending drives and tiring the defense. In the long run, the defense was not affected, but a team like Oklahoma — the Buckeyes next opponent — may exploit these holes more readily than Tulsa.Last year, Oklahoma averaged 222.1 yards per game, which was 22nd in the nation. Returning starter and junior Samaje Perine has averaged six yards or more per carry in his last two seasons, and has rushed for a combined 3,062 yards in his last two years.Perine was dinged up earlier in the week with a shoulder injury, but scored twice. Freshman Joe Mixon received a bulk of the carries against Louisiana-Monroe, finishing with 117 yards.Hooker said he felt like the team did not play with the intensity it usually plays with against Tulsa. If the defense plays as flat as it did against Oklahoma, the running lanes may be even more wide open.Wide receivers are still a mysteryLosing Michael Thomas, Braxton Miller and Jalin Marshall was an issue for OSU this spring. That discussion was supposed to end after redshirt sophomore Noah Brown was rumored to be recovering well from a leg injury he suffered last season. There was some maturity in the unit in sixth-year senior Corey Smith and redshirt junior James Clark. However, both Smith and Clark have been far from leading members of the receivers, failing to produce a single catch in the first two games.Redshirt sophomore Parris Campbell made his first reception of the year for five yards against Tulsa, and the production of highly touted redshirt sophomore Noah Brown dipped Saturday, as he was only able to haul in one pass for 16 yards.Junior Curtis Samuel currently leads all Buckeyes in receiving yards, but an emphasis this year from Meyer has been the success of wide receivers. That success has yet to be had, and OSU will need a wideout to step up against a defense like Oklahoma’s.Jerome Baker has the intangibles to be a starterIt’s not often you hear of a high school running back transitioning to the linebacker position successfully. The Buckeyes are trying this kind of change with sophomore Jerome Baker. For now, the transition appears to have great potential, as Baker had an impressive game filling in for injured junior linebacker Dante Booker against Tulsa. Finishing the night with five total tackles and a fumble recovery, he was all smiles at the post-game press conference.Showing flashes of speed and strength, the former running back was all over the field, making plays and helping keep OSU ahead.Even veterans present on the field are taking notice of what Baker brings to the table.“(Baker) was out there communicating and talking a lot,” OSU junior linebacker Raekwon McMillan said. “It made the job easier on me as the older guy out there.”The status of Booker is still likely to be up in the air for much of the upcoming week. If Baker plays again against Oklahoma, it will be a test of exactly how much talent the young linebacker possesses.Tight end under utilizedLast year, Nick Vannett made a big enough impact to be drafted by the Seattle Seahawks. Although sometimes forgotten about in the offense, he made big enough contributions in the blocking and receiving game that Pete Carroll and the rest of the Seahawks pulled the trigger in the third round.So far, the leading tight end for OSU — redshirt junior Marcus Baugh — has three receptions or 40 yards. The only other tight end with any statistics this season is freshman A.J. Alexander, who has one catch for three yards.The year is still young, but it is important to remember how instrumental the tight end can be to a college football team. Meyer has never been one to use the position as a safety value or as a go-to receiver.In a game like Tulsa, the tight end could provide a little boost to the offense when it is struggling, with the possibility of  small out route passes or streaks down the middle of the field. No player at that position caught a pass against the Golden Hurricane,Sure, Vannett finished last season with just 19 receptions and 162 yards. But Baugh could see more targets if the offense needs a spark early in a game like it did Saturday. read more

Steve Jobs to be questioned as part of antitrust lawsuit

first_imgIn January, Steve Jobs was granted a medical leave of absence by the Board of Directors for Apple. This medical leave followed a previous one back in 2009 during which the CEO received a liver transplant. Apparently, the medical leave is not going to keep Jobs from being required to answer questions as part of a class-action lawsuit brought against Apple and its iTunes music store.In July 2004, RealNetworks attempted to compete head-to-head with iTunes over iPod owners through the use of a workaround technology called Harmony. The technology allowed iPod owners to transfer music purchased from the company’s music store to their device. Before Harmony, iPod owners only had this capability with iTunes, but this new capability was short-lived. In October 2004, Apple released an update which killed the ability for iPod owners to continue to use Harmony.AdChoices广告As a result of this move, Thomas Slattery and other iPod owners filed a class-action lawsuit in 2005 accusing Apple of having a music store monopoly with iTunes. The lawsuit alleges that Apple broke federal antitrust laws in addition to California’s unfair competition law because it required iPod owners to listen to music purchased only from iTunes.That lawsuit chalked up a victory recently when U.S. Magistrate Judge Howard R. Lloyd opened the door for Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs, to be questioned. Jobs will be questioned for up to two hours, but those questions must be limited to what the CEO knew about the October 2004 iPod update which killed the ability for the Harmony technology to work. Lawyers for Slattery had hoped to expand the questioning to include why Apple refused to license its FairPlay DRM technology which would have eliminated the need for Harmony. That scope of questioning was denied by the judge since claims involving the licensing of FairPlay were dismissed as part of the lawsuit in December 2009.Read more at Bloomberglast_img read more

Hunt for details on child burials at Bessboro mother and baby home

first_imgHunt for details on child burials at Bessboro mother and baby home The burials took place between 1922 and 1998. Image: Shutterstock 26 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Share148 Tweet Email3 Feb 17th 2018, 10:01 AM Image: Shutterstockcenter_img 10,142 Views By Aoife Barry PEOPLE WITH INFORMATION on burials at Cork’s Bessboro mother and baby home are being asked to contact the commission of investigation into such homes.The Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes and a number of county homes (MBHCOI) has put out advertisements asking for people to contact it about the issue.The commission is investigating and reporting on the burial arrangements of children and mothers who died while resident in a number of institutions, including Bessboro. But so far, it doesn’t have enough information on the burials and how many there might be at the site.It is currently investigating “the burials of a large number of children who died while resident in the Bessboro mother and baby home in Cork between 1922 and 1998″, it said.Now it wants to hear from anyone “who has personal knowledge, documentation or any other information concerning the burial arrangements and/or the burial places of children who died in Bessboro in this time period”.It is looking for written submissions by email or post to arrive on or before 1 April 2018.A spokesperson from the MBCHOI told that they have some information on burials related to Bessboro, but not enough information. They would be interested in information from people who saw burials, who know where children are buried, or who have heard information related to this.Bessboro is one of a number of mother and baby homes which operated in Ireland in the twentieth century. Questions have been raised about the deaths of babies at the homes and where they were buried.In March of last year, TD Mick Barry told the Dáil: We heard from Carmel Cantwell, whose brother William died in the [Bessboro] home in the early 1960s. She does not know for sure where her brother is buried – perhaps in the angels plot but perhaps not. How many more babies such as William are buried there and where are their graves? Where can their relatives go to pay their respects? It is not good enough just to point to a tiny plot and say “He is in there, somewhere”. Do William’s sister and his elderly mother not deserve better than that?There is a Little Angels plot at Bessboro, which contains the burial sites for some children.Susan Lohan of the Adoption Rights Alliance told that Bessboro has a chequered history.She said that the death rates at the home were so high, according to records detailed by Dr James Deeny, Ireland’s Chief Medical Officer at the time, that the home was shut down in the late 1940s. It subsequently reopened.The mortality rate for Bessboro was 44.6% in 1944.Lohan said that the Adoption Rights Alliance fears that there there will be a mass grave discovered at Bessboro.“In the absence of easy to detect, easy to research burial records for that home I suspect that there will be some form of a mass grave in Bessboro – that’s certainly our suspicion,” she said.Lohan pointed out that there is currently a small burial plot on Bessboro land, but said “there’s absolutely no way it could accommodate the numbers of babies who have died there over the years”. The Adoption Rights Alliance questions where all the babies who died at Bessboro were buried, and if there are burial sites across the campus.“It is imperative that we discover not just where the babies are buried but why they died in the first place and who was turning a blind eye to this,” she said.She also noted that the mother and baby home at Tuam – where a burial plot was discovered – ceased operating in 1963, and was run by a different order of nuns to Bessboro.In 2015, the Irish Examiner carried out a special examination of Bessboro home. It said that a previously unpublished HSE report on Bessboro, from 2012, showed that it was a place where “women and babies were considered little more than a commodity for trade amongst religious orders”.The terms of reference for the inquiry were completed in 2014, under the then-Minister for Children James Reilly. At the time, the terms were criticised, and the Adoption Rights Alliance believes the terms were too narrow.The terms of reference are here, and include that the commission is:To examine mortality amongst mothers and children residing in these institutions (to determine the general causes, circumstances, and rates of mortality) and to compare it to the literature on mortality amongst such other groups of women and children as might be relevantTo investigate post-mortem practices and procedures in respect of children or mothers who died while resident in these institutions, including the reporting of deaths, burial arrangements and transfer of remains to educational institutions for the purpose of anatomical examinationThe commision said that if people have information on burials:It can be contacted by email at info @mbchcoi.ieOr by post at Mother and Baby Homes Commission of Investigation, 73 Lower Baggot St, Dublin 2, or PO Box 12626, Dublin 2.It is not able to assist any person who wants to resolve their identity or trace a birth relative. People who want information on their identity or tracing relatives must do so through Tusla, the Child and Family Agency.Read: Mother and baby homes: It will be difficult to ‘establish facts’ on burial records say investigators>Read: Adoption in Ireland: ‘We’re still going through it, we’re still carrying the shame’> Short URL Saturday 17 Feb 2018, 10:00 AMlast_img read more

Bretagne Ecowatt a permis de réduire les pics de consommation de 3

first_imgBretagne : Ecowatt a permis de réduire les pics de consommation de 3%Selon le Réseau transport d’électricité (RTE), le programme de réduction volontaire de la consommation électrique lors des pics d’hiver (EcoWatt) a permis de diminuer la consommation de 2 à 3% en Bretagne. Grâce à cela, les coupures de courant ont pu être évitées.Chaque année, en période de grands froids, la Bretagne bat des records d’importation en électricité pour se chauffer. Dans la région, 450.000 logements sont chauffés par convecteurs, soit 28% de son parc, contre 20% environ à l’échelle nationale, selon l’Ademe (Agence de l’environnement et de la maîtrise de l’énergie). Mais cette année, malgré la rigueur de certaines semaines, le programme Ecowatt s’est avéré efficace. Ce programme de réduction volontaire de la consommation électrique invite les participants à réduire ou à reporter leur consommation d’électricité lors des alertes qui s’effectuent par SMS, mail ou via les réseaux sociaux.À lire aussiDécouvrez d’incroyables sculptures naturelles formées par la glaceAinsi, début février, sept alertes EcoWatt avaient été lancées. RTE indique dans un communiqué que la réaction des participants a entraîné “une réduction de la consommation qui a pu atteindre jusqu’à 2 à 3% aux heures les plus chargées, soit l’équivalent de la consommation cumulée des villes de Quimper, Vannes et Saint-Malo”. “Au terme de cette quatrième campagne, il apparaît qu’EcoWatt a atteint ses objectifs”, en évitant les coupures, ajoute cette filiale d’EDF en charge du réseau de lignes à haute tension. Même si, le 9 février, la Bretagne a battu son record de consommation électrique (18.000 mégawatts) Ce pic a été surmonté grâce à “la bonne disponibilité du réseau et des moyens de production”, ainsi que “la mobilisation des EcoW’acteurs”, indique RTE cité par l’AFP. Lancé lors de l’hiver 2008/09, le programme EcoWatt a vu son chiffre de participants bondir de 50% en un an et compte aujourd’hui près de 45.000 abonnés à ses alertes, dont 3.600 collectivités et entreprises. L’objectif des 50.000 foyers de consommation à toucher d’ici l’hiver 2013/14 est donc déjà presque atteint.Le 20 mars 2012 à 14:07 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Duffy is happy for yesterdays goal

first_imgThe Brighton and Hove Albion defender equalized the game against Huddersfield to pave the way to an eventual victoryMathias Jorgensen scored for Huddersfield during the first minute of yesterday’s match against Brighton and Hove Albion.But Seagulls’ defender Shane Duffy was able to equalize the match at the dawn of the first half paving the way to an eventual victory.“The timing of my goal was important because when we went in at the break we knew we then had a full half to get another,” the Irish player told the club’s official website.“It’s another result that we have to build on away from home. We have a big week, but we’re always full of confidence and we’ll always try to keep a clean sheet.”Webster knows there’s a lot of competition before he debuts Manuel R. Medina – August 24, 2019 Brighton and Hove Albion defender, Adam Webster, hasn’t debuted in the English Premier League because he knows the competition is fierce.“If we can do that then we know we have the pace and ability in attacking areas to hurt teams and it’s all about building momentum,” he added.Teammate Florin Andone scored the second goal of the day and sealed the win.“It’s nice for him to score and I was delighted for him because he’s worked really hard and been given an opportunity,” Duffy explained.“Glenn [Murray] has been in great form and Florin’s had a few injury setbacks, but he’s kept working hard and stayed focused.”last_img read more

Valdes details the whole process these children go through after being detained, and it is not what you expect. The interview with Valdes can be seen by clicking here.Thursday, Criminal Justice Attorney Saman Nasseri joined KUSI’s Carlos Amezcua on Good Morning San Diego to further explain what exactly President Trump’s executive order means, and how it impacts the San Diego community. Nasseri said the number of people coming to our border seeking asylum is actually higher this year than it was last year.During the interview, Carlos asked Nasseri, “What is the difference between an asylum seeker and an illegal immigrant?” Nasseri responded, “An asylum seeker is someone that comes to the port of entry and says, “I have a fear of returning back to my country, I would like asylum.” That individual with their family, is going to get processed. They’re going to get processed through, get their interview, get their documents, go through the immigration court, or through the asylum office, depending on the case. They’re not going to get apprehended, they’re not considered illegal entries. Its people who are just apprehended at the border, who are just trying to cross the border illegally, those are the ones that are being taken into custody and prosecuted. Later they say, “I have a fear of returning to my country, don’t deport me, please.” They get processed separately from the asylum seekers. The last group of people who has been grouped in here is the unaccompanied minors. Those are not children that are being housed away from their families, those are children that are sent here by themselves.” Posted: June 21, 2018 Updated: 7:54 AMlast_img read more

Night hike in the cloud forest

first_imgNestled in the highlands, Monteverde is a magnet for travelers, who indulge every outdoor fantasy. One of the most understated – and provocative – tours is the night hike, based in Santa Elena.Guided by expert naturalists, groups venture into the rain forest at night, where they discover a cornucopia of creatures large, small and deadly. Not only can guides spot and identify these species in the darkness, they also relate volumes of knowledge in a simple, conversational style. Night hikes are inexpensive, easy to arrange and unforgettable.Robert Isenberg totes his camera into the night and sees the jungle in a whole new way.

Then and Now Los Angeles International Airport

first_imgThen and Now: Los Angeles International AirportThen and Now: Los Angeles International AirportCan you imagine flying around the world 90 years ago? Los Angeles International Airport has evolved into a bustling hub since opening on October 1, 1928 and has tons of exciting improvements (USD $14 billion to be exact!) lined up in the next few years to help transform the travelling experience into one as smooth, comfortable and fun as possible.Follow the footsteps of past, current and future travellers below and take a peek through time at how the bustling airport has/will change:OverallTHEN: LAX begins operation on October 1, 1928. Although it functioned as an airport, there was no regular passenger operations at the airport and, per LAX historian Ethel Pattison, it was just “a dirt patch with rabbits running around.” The first structure, Hangar No. 1, wasn’t built until June 1929 and the main terminal complex was only constructed in 1961 after major airlines beganmoving their facilities to LAX.NOW: There are now nine terminals at LAX, including the Tom Bradley International Terminal, with more than 62+ national and local brand-name dining and shopping venues for travellers to enjoy while waiting for their flights.FUTURE: Scheduled to finish by 2023, LAX is undergoing a USD $14 billion renovation program that will transform the entire experience including getting in/out of LAX with metro light rail and a driverless electric train, a giant new rental car facility, a new Metro hub, a new terminal and other bonus amenities.Getting to and from LAXTHEN: Travellers in the past all drove to the airport in their automobiles and, once air travel became mainstream, there was usually a long wait to drop/pick up passengers during peak holiday travel. Cars with overheated radiators would cause traffic to be backed up all the way outside the airport.NOW: Driving is still one of the main ways of accessing the airport, with a myriad of road networks connecting LAX to the wider road system. Car-less travellers can easily hail an Uber or hop on a LAX FlyAway shuttle that whisks passengers to Downtown L.A., Hollywood, Westwood and Van Nuys.FUTURE: Next year, Metro will extend the Green Line to connect with the new Crenshaw/LAX Line station, the closest station to LAX. In 2023, the electric people-mover train will bridge the gap between LAX and the new metro station, so travellers can seamlessly get in and out of LAX using Metro trains. There’s even talk that Uber is looking to bring flying taxis to L.A. in the future!Faster SecurityTHEN: Flying was simple back then; there were no metal detectors nor X-ray machines. Travellers would board their planes and someone would take their bags and load them in the hold. Only police officers stationed at the airport were there to provide basic security to passengers.NOW: Given the multiple layers of security present at airports nowadays, every little thing counts. For travellers looking to depart, self-tagging kiosks at airline counters are simplifying the bag-check process and automated screening lanes further speed up the carry-on luggage process, with five times as many loading stations, so that travellers can speed past slower ones. For those landing at LAX, passengers can look forward to using automated passport control kiosks that spit out a ticket and help process their arrivals through customs.FUTURE: Instead of handing over a boarding pass, get ready for gate check-in using facial recognition. Earlier this year, British Airways and Lufthansa rolled out the technology in the Tom Bradley International Terminal; Qantas and Korean Air will be the next to try the system.Terminal ExperiencesTHEN: At the beginning of LAX’s operations, the travelling experience didn’t come with bells and whistles. In fact, to feed the travelling masses, a barrack was converted into a cafeteria.NOW: Many terminals have revamped or are in the process of revamping their culinary and shopping venues in the past few years. For example, Terminal 2 unveiled a new dining hub last year and Terminal 1 is next, with 20 new shops, such as MAC cosmetics and Kiehl’s, expected. Aside from dining and shopping venues, LAX now also have teams of therapy dogs from their Pets Unstressing Passengers (PUP) program touring around terminals, offering emotional happiness and support to travellers. In addition, there are multiple pieces of gorgeous public art work in each terminal and seasonal live musical performances to liven the travelling experience.FUTURE: Scheduled to open in 2020, a new USD $1.6 billion Midfield Satellite Concourse addition to the Tom Bradley International Terminal will add 12 aircraft gates, culinary venues and children’s play areas. LAX is also mulling a curbside concierge to escort travellers to the boarding gate.ArchitectureTHEN: Designed with a simple aesthetic of mid-century modern design, the first version of LAX wasn’t loaded with bonus features beyond the futuristic-looking Central Theme Building.NOW: Although the Theme building no longer houses a restaurant, the top deck is now open as a public observation deck, where travellers can get a 360-degree view of the airport.FUTURE: Circling back to the simplistic design that the original architects were aiming for, the LAX team is aiming for a futuristic look with an emphasis on openness, natural light and clean lines. They’re even planning to rebuild old bathrooms, where smart lights on the ceiling indicate if a stall is occupied and a computer tracks foot traffic to signal when it’s time for more upkeep.Getting on the planeTHEN: Travellers would pass through the terminals directly onto the tarmac to board their flights via portable stairways, even VIPs.NOW: Normal travellers now access planes through jetways, whereas VIP travellers can now take advantage of The Private Suite. A newly built terminal, The Private Suite is located a few miles away from LAX, has its own private TSA screening and a team of eight people to assist each travel party, from escorting to a private lounge suite to driving them across the tarmac to aircraft in a BMW 7 series sedan.Source = Los Angeles International Airportlast_img read more

Home Sales Prices Improve in October Inventory Worsens

first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Home Prices Home Sales Housing Supply RE/MAX 2014-11-18 Tory Barringer Despite seeing the start of their usual seasonal downturn, U.S. home sales improved annually again in October, according to a market summary report.RE/MAX’s latest National Housing Report, which follows changes in home sales, prices, and inventory in 53 metro areas across the United States, shows October transactions came in 2.6 percent higher than a year ago. The annual increase came despite a 0.8 percent drop from September’s sales total.October’s increase marks only the second month this year in which sales have come in ahead of 2013 figures. Analysts have blamed the apparent slowdown on a range of causes, including inclement weather in the year’s early months, challenges with affordability, and stricter lending conditions locking out creditworthy borrowers.”Home sales in 2014 started the year slowly and then rose to equal the strong sales in 2013,” said RE/MAX CEO Margaret Kelly. “Following usual seasonal trends and with prices rising at a reasonable rate, the market appears to be settling into a more sustainable growth pattern.”On a yearly basis, 34 of the 53 metros tracked in October posted higher sales. Increases were led by Honolulu (+22.9 percent), Orlando (+18.6 percent), Tampa (+18.3 percent), and Nashville (+16.9 percent).Home prices continued on their growth track of the last few years, rising to a median $193,000 across RE/MAX’s surveyed metros. October’s median was 7.4 percent higher than last year, reflecting 33 straight months of rising prices. However, the pace of growth has slowed considerably this year come to a more moderate level.Among all reporting metros, 44 posted higher sales prices compared to a year ago, according to RE/MAX.The only metric that didn’t improve from last year was the supply for for-sale homes. RE/MAX reported a 6.8 percent year-over-year decline in listings, putting the nation’s average months’ supply at 4.9 based on the current sale rate. A six-month supply is considered to be indicative of a balanced market between buyers and sellers.Compared to September, home inventory was down 5.2 percent, RE/MAX reported.
