Around 20-38 calls were received daily in three police stations, whereas two police stations received 55-60 PCR calls every day. Six police stations in Eastern range registered 3,698 FIRs. Nearly 24-35 calls were received daily in four police stations, whereas two police stations received 40-54 PCR calls every day. More than 6,000 FIRs were registered in six police stations which come under Western Range.Two police stations received 60-66 PCR calls whereas other four got 32-40 PCR calls daily. Northern Range recorded more than 4,000 FIRs in four police stations and in between 33-50 PCR calls were received daily in four police stations. As many as 1,580 FIRs were registered in the current year at four police stations which fall under New Delhi Range. In between, 10-22 calls were received daily in three police stations, whereas one police station received 50 PCR calls every day. According to Delhi Police, the pilot project has been started to separate Investigation from Law and Order in 30 police stations of Delhi Police after careful planning to improve the pace and quality of investigation. During the year 2019, this project will be extended to other police stations of Delhi Police for which 4227 personnel forming 1,409 teams of one SI, one HC and one Constable each, have already been sanctioned by Govt. of India. Recently LG Anil Baijal directed Delhi Police to maximize the use of technology and focus on the separation of investigation from law and order.last_img read more

60s Scoop survivors get apology in Alberta

first_imgKathleen MartensAPTN NewsFor only the second time in Canada, a provincial government has apologized for its role in the ‘60s Scoop, when thousands of Indigenous children were taken from their homes and placed in foster care.“The decisions that led to that personal trauma, many of those decisions were made right here on this floor, in this chamber,” Premier Rachel Notley told the Alberta Legislature Monday.Notley follows then-premier Greg Selinger of Manitoba, who was the first provincial leader to apologize in 2015.Both were NDP governments.“For this trauma, this pain, this suffering, alienation and sadness, we are sorry,” Notley told scoop survivors, Indigenous leaders and provincial politicians in the House.Notley acknowledged the historic event wouldn’t have happened without the lobbying efforts of the Sixties Scoop Indigenous Society of Alberta.The Society, comprised of scoop survivors, spent the past two years educating politicians and the public about who was scooped and why.“It’s one thing to acknowledge the damage that’s been done,” said former Society director and survivor Lew Jobs of Edmonton.“And, yes, you’re going to stand up and you’re going to make a public apology and say all the right things. But I want to know what’s going to happen afterwards.”Jobs was a baby when he was seized from his Inuit mother in Northwest Territories and raised by a white teacher in Edmonton. He was cut off from his culture, language and people.The only baby photo ’60s Scoop survivor Lew Jobs has. He is one of an estimated 20,000 Indigenous children Canada-wide apprehended from their birth families by provincial officials during the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s and raised by strangers.Compensation is on the table in a proposed settlement offered by the federal government that would pay each survivor between $25,000 and $50,000 to a maximum of $750 million.But the settlement, which has cleared one legal hurdle in federal court and awaits a second in Toronto later this week, is controversial.It does not have unanimous support and could still be scuttled if 2,000 or more survivors opt out.Saskatoon lawyer Doug Racine represents about 150 survivors from across Canada who, he says, may also launch an appeal.“There are unhappy with the lack of consultation, restrictions on being able to file future lawsuits, and the difficulty obtaining their social service records,” Racine said in a telephone interview Monday.Colleen Rajotte, of Winnipeg, is president of the Manitoba ‘60s Scoop Survivors Association. She says her group is poised to file a new, national, class-action lawsuit against the federal government if the settlement proposal fails.“The number of survivors objecting is growing,” she said. “It’s really encouraging.”The Alberta apology kicked off with a pipe ceremony, grand entry into the Legislature, and smudging ceremony.Jobs was there to hear Notley’s words in person and said she very nearly didn’t apologize on the record.He says the government wanted to do it in the rotunda instead of in the House.“We pushed for it to be in the Legislature, recorded on Hansard,” Jobs said in a telephone interview.Survivors listen to Alberta Premier Rachel Notley.Notley followed up her apology by pledging to work with Alberta’s Indigenous people and reflect their needs in its decisions.“Saying sorry is one thing,” said Jobs, who has decided to opt in to the settlement agreement even though it’s not perfect.“There has to be action.” kmartens@aptn.ca@katmartelast_img read more

General Assembly hears calls for donors to fulfil development aid promises

26 September 2009Amid the global economic crisis, which has left no country – big or small – untouched, it is vital that donor countries deliver on their past pledges for development assistance, the General Assembly heard today. Prime Minister Pakalitha B. Mosisili of Lesotho highlighted the importance of fulfilling commitments by noting the severe impact that the economic crisis is having on the least developed and developing countries, which are the hardest hit. “Their exports have been severely reduced, and their capital flows choked. Its impact is felt in all aspects of life; be it in the increase of unemployment, illiteracy or in the incidence of the HIV and AIDS-related deaths due to unavailability of drugs,” he told the Assembly’s annual high-level debate. His own country, as a small economy, has been adversely affected by the crisis with demand for textile exports having dropped dramatically, resulting in unprecedented loss of livelihoods, and eroding the gains that had been made to eradicate poverty, he said. Mr. Mosisili noted that the Group of 20 (G20) major economies have pledged a $1 trillion stimulus package, the bulk of which will be available for developing countries. “My concern is that, this initiative seems to have stalled and it is unclear how the funds will be distributed,” he said, stressing that disbursement must be informed by the needs of individual countries, and be free of quotas and conditionalities. “While I remain optimistic that the pledge will see the light of day, I appeal for the fulfilment of commitments that have been made on overseas development aid,” said the Prime Minister. The Secretary of Foreign Affairs of the Philippines also called on developed nations to abide by their commitments, while urging all countries to resist protectionism in order to expand trade and investment flows. “Furthermore, the voice of the developing world must now be fully heard in reforming international financial and development institutions so that we can forge a more equitable and stable global economic system to avoid future crises,” Alberto G. Romulo said in his address to the Assembly yesterday. He also highlighted the “intolerable” strain placed on the poor by the global economic crisis, and especially on the efforts of countries to achieve the globally agreed anti-poverty targets with a 2015 deadline, known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) . Likewise, Foreign Minister Jean-Marie Ehouzou of Benin spoke yesterday of how the economic crisis was jeopardizing his country’s efforts to combat poverty, which it was trying to do through the promotion of microfinance, youth training, mechanization in agriculture and promotion of education.  This made it all the more urgent to reform the global financial architecture, and for countries to fully shoulder their international commitments. The global economic crisis also posed particular difficulties for the world’s landlocked developing nations, such as Kyrgyzstan , its Prime Minister told the Assembly today. This group faces special needs owing to their lack of territorial access to the sea, remoteness and isolation from world markets and high transit costs, all of which continue to impose serious constraints on their overall socio-economic development. Igor Chudinov said the international community, under the leadership of the UN, “can and must” more actively assist this vulnerable group of countries, particularly through the use of debt swaps. For example, he proposed swapping some of his country’s debt for, among other elements, aid that it provides to Afghanistan . The real danger, said the Prime Minister of the Netherlands , Jan Peter Balkenende, was that those who had no part in causing the crisis would suffer the most. In rich countries, that meant a loss of jobs and assets; in developing countries, it meant rising child mortality and rising hunger. “In poor countries it is a matter of life and death,” he said in his address today, urging countries to “honour an old promise” and set aside 0.7 per cent of their gross national income for official development assistance (ODA). Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon made a similar call in remarks addressed to yesterday’s G20 summit in Pittsburgh , urging the world’s major economies to fulfil their pledges of tens of billions of dollars in aid to the developing and poorer nations. “Today we must send a signal that we will not overlook the oft forgotten people of our world,” he stated, calling for concrete assistance, beginning with the $50 billion for the poorest pledged by the G20 summit last year. read more

Malaysia says it deported Lankan who made threats using FB

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said the trio were nabbed during special operations in Selangor, conducted by the Special Branch’s Counter-Terrorism Division. “The suspect, via his Facebook account, posted a threat to kill the president and Prime Minister of Sri Lanka. The suspect is also on the wanted list in his country. “The suspect was detained under Section 6 of the Immigration Act (1959/63).He was also deported to Sri Lanka under special operations on April 27,” he said, adding that police managed to detain the suspect following cooperation with the Sri Lanka authorities. Khalid said police, together with the Immigration Department, would monitor the entry of foreigners, especially from high-risk countries, into Malaysia. (Colombo Gazette) On the first arrest, Khalid said two ethnic Chechens from Russia aged between 25 and 28 were nabbed for their alleged involvement in IS. Malaysia says it deported a Sri Lankan who threatened to kill the President and Prime Minister of Sri Lanka using Facebook.The New Straits Times reported that two Russians and a Sri Lankan were deported to their countries after being detained in Selangor between March 28 and Apr 22. “The duo were nabbed by Turkish authorities in February this year due to suspected ties with IS in Syria. They were then deported from Turkey and entered Malaysia in March. “The two were then detained under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012. Both were deported to their home country today (May 13) under special operations,” he said in a press statement today.Khalid said that the second arrest involved a 42-year-old Sri Lankan who worked as a closed-circuit television technician in the Klang Valley. read more

Brotherly Love Watts Pounceys to face off Sunday night

PITTSBURGH — On the surface they’re identical. Below the surface too. Large. Loud. Remarkably athletic and remarkably close. Well compensated and well tattooed.Still, Pittsburgh Steelers centre Maurkice Pouncey believes there is one surefire way to tell him and Los Angeles Chargers centre (and very slightly older brother) Mike apart on Sunday night when the Chargers visit Heinz Field.Just have the twins switch places at halftime and let Maurkice snap the ball to Los Angeles quarterback Philip Rivers for a quarter or two. Then the differences between the Pounceys will be unmistakable.“I’ll take that team to the next level baby,” Maurkice Pouncey said, voice dripping with sarcasm. “They’ll definitely notice.”Maurkice is kidding. Mostly, though he does have a slight edge over Mike in Pro Bowl selections (six to three). The 29-year-olds are well aware of the unique opportunity playing against each other offers. Separated by a minute at birth, the Pounceys were virtually inseparable growing up until Maurkice left the University of Florida for the NFL in 2010.They’ve spent their professional lives rooting for each other from afar — Sunday is only the fifth time they’ll be together in the same NFL stadium — and both feared Mike’s career might be in jeopardy after a hip injury limited him to five games with the Miami Dolphins in 2016.“It was a point that we both thought that and it was tough,” Maurkice said. “Lord willing, a lot of hard work, and the doctors did a great job. Obviously he’s playing at a high level and he’s been blessed to be out there.”Mike returned to play a full 16 games last season, but found himself looking for work after the Dolphins cut him in a salary cap move in March. The Chargers sprinted to scoop him up, bringing him to the West Coast on a two-year, $15 million deal just four days after getting released. The change of scenery provided Mike Pouncey with a mid-career jolt, and his presence has played a significant role in the Chargers’ hot 8-3 start.“We knew it was a big signing when we signed him,” Los Angeles coach Anthony Lynn said. “But it’s even better than what I thought.”Asked what the Mike Pouncey experience is like, Lynn laughed.“I’m pretty sure it’s similar to what you guys have in Pittsburgh,” he said.Translation: a lot of jokes. A lot of trash talk. And a relentless work ethic that belies their copious amounts of swagger.“He’s the same player as me,” Mike Pouncey said. “He’s going to go out there and give you everything he has on each play. (My teammates) more excited (than I am) because we have a real good friendship on this team, and they go out there and talk smack to my brother to make me feel a little bit better. It’s going to be fun.”The entire Pouncey clan will descend on Maurkice’s house in the Pittsburgh suburbs on Saturday. As for split allegiances, Maurkice’s offer to host came with one very simple directive: If you root for the Steelers, you can crash at his place. If not? You’re on your own.How tight are they? Maurkice admits Mike might be the only person in the world outside of his children he actually calls on the phone rather than just texting.It’s the same for Derek and T.J. Watt, though the two brothers — T.J. is a second-year linebacker for the Steelers, Derek is in his third season as a fullback for the Chargers — won’t have the luxury of standing on the sideline watching the other play like the Pounceys do.There’s a very real chance that T.J. and Derek will find themselves on a collision course sometime Sunday night, the first time that’s ever happened somewhere other than the family backyard or the random University of Wisconsin football practice when both were playing for the Badgers.Not that T.J. believes there’s going to be time to think about bragging rights. If his assignment on a play is to ram into the guy wearing No. 34, then that’s what he’s going to do.“It’s a football game to me,” T.J. said. “I don’t think anything is going to really change. I don’t think in that split second you can determine who’s who and what’s what, so whatever happens, happens.”Older brother J.J., the star defensive end for the Houston Texans, hopes they are forced to ram into each other at least once so “we can settle it once and for all.” Provided, of course, there’s no cheating on either side.“I basically just said, no cut-blocks,” J.J. said. “That’s the only thing. Just don’t go at his knees. Otherwise, everything’s fair.”Though Derek, 26, lacks the star power of his older or his younger brother — both of whom were first-round picks while the Chargers selected Derek in the sixth round in 2016 — T.J., 24, might know better than anyone on the planet that you overlook the middle Watt brother at your own risk.“He may not get all the publicity that J.J. and I get, but Derek’s been in the NFL, this is his third year,” T.J. said. “I don’t see many people in America doing that. I don’t see many people in the world doing that. He’s playing at the highest level. He’s a starting fullback for an NFL team; I think that’s pretty damn cool.”Connie and John Watt will watch their boys go at it from the stands, trying to stay as neutral as possible. They might want to get used to it. All three Watt brothers are on teams heading to the post-season, meaning more family showdowns loom.“I hope the game, I don’t know, I guess ends in a tie,” J.J. Watt said. “I guess that’s probably the best thing for everybody. It’s probably good for (the Texans) too.”___AP Sports Writers Joe Reedy and Kristie Rieken contributed to this report.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLWill Graves, The Associated Press read more

The Scoring For The Decathlon And Heptathlon Favors Running Over Throwing

How do you think the decathlon and heptathlon are scored?Take a moment. OK, do you have your answer? It’s probably wrong. It also probably makes at least as much sense as — and possibly a good deal more than — the method used by modern track and field.Decathlon, which at the Olympics is a men’s event, is composed of 10 events: the 100 meters, long jump, shot put, high jump, 400 meters, 110-meter hurdles, discus throw, pole vault, javelin throw and 1,500 meters. Heptathlon, a women’s event at the Olympics, has seven events: the 100-meter hurdles, high jump, shot put, 200 meters, long jump, javelin throw and 800 meters.To tally these diverse events, which are measured in seconds, meters and centimeters, into a single overall score, the metrics for each event are fed into a series of equations. However, any scoring system for a multidiscipline competition will by definition have value judgments baked into it. In the case of the decathlon and heptathlon, that has resulted in decades of undervaluing throwing while overvaluing short-distance running, which in turn has resulted in top decathletes and heptathletes all converging around a certain kind of skill set and physique. It doesn’t have to be that way.As it stands, each event’s equation has three unique constants — AA, BB and CC 1Here are tables showing those constants for each event in the decathlon and heptathlon. (Opens PDF.)— to go along with individual performance, PP. For running events, in which competitors are aiming for lower times, this equation is: A⋅(B–P)CA⋅(B–P)C, where PP is measured in seconds. For field events, in which competitors are aiming for greater distances or heights, the formula is flipped in the middle: A⋅(P–B)CA⋅(P–B)C, where PP is measured in meters for throwing events and centimeters for jumping and pole vault.BB is effectively a baseline threshold at which an athlete begins scoring positive points. For performances worse than that threshold, an athlete receives zero points. 2Strictly adhering to the formulas, athletes who don’t meet the threshold technically score a set of complex numbers with an imaginary component.The AA, BB and CC constants vary by event and by gender. All events have a CC parameter (the exponent) between 1 and 2, making the scoring system progressive. In track and field, that means that as an athlete performs better, he or she is rewarded increasingly generously. A progressive system thus especially rewards standout performances rather than a consistently good performance across events.For example, the 100 meters formula for points is 25.4347⋅(18–time)1.8125.4347⋅(18–time)1.81. A 0.75-second improvement from 11.50 to 10.75 would yield 165 additional points. However, another 0.75-second improvement from 10.75 to 10.00 seconds would yield 179 additional points.This scoring philosophy wasn’t always in place. Early systems in the late 19th century merely ranked competitors in each event and summed those ranks. The first points-based system based on magnitude of results rather than relative rank came from the U.S. in 1884, but continued to award points on a linear scale — making a one-second improvement on a slow time as valuable as the same gain on a world record. Next came a Finnish table introduced in 1931 and formally adopted by the International Association of Athletics Federations in 1934, which acknowledged that performance is increasingly difficult to improve at higher levels because of natural limits of the body, and further improvements at those extremes should be rewarded more.The first IAAF international women’s tables arrived in 1954, for which officials used principles of physics to devise the formulas. Unfortunately, the science was bunk, because it falsely assumed that velocity, rather than kinetic energy — which is proportional to the square of velocity — was the output of human work. This velocity-based system heavily discounted throwing events, which awarded points at a decreasing rate with higher performance. Points effectively stalled out after throwing a certain distance. Those calculations were soon adopted for men and remained in practice until 1984, when mounting pressure about the system’s lack of incentive to further improve throwing performance beyond a certain point pushed through reform.3In addition, a new high jump form and better technology in vaulting poles threw off many of the table’s underlying premises.The 1984 tables used the principle that the world record performances of each event at the time should have roughly equal scores but haven’t been updated since. Because world records for different events progress at different rates, today these targets for WR performances significantly differ between events. For example, Jürgen Schult’s 1986 discus throw of 74.08 meters would today score the most decathlon points, at 1,384, while Usain Bolt’s 100-meter world record of 9.58 seconds would notch “just” 1,203 points. For women, Natalya Lisovskaya’s 22.63 shot put world record in 1987 would tally the most heptathlon points, at 1,379, while Jarmila Kratochvílová’s 1983 WR in the 800 meters still anchors the lowest WR points, at 1,224.The 1984 change also made all parameters progressive, and targets of 8,500 and 6,500 were set for top overall scores for the men and women respectively.4At the 1984 Olympics, still contested under the old scoring system, the U.K.’s Daley Thompson missed breaking the decathlon world record by a single point. After the IAAF’s formal adoption of the new rules, though, his score increased enough to retroactively break the world record, breaking his tie with West German Jürgen Hingsen, a tie Thompson had also retroactively earned after an IAAF investigation revealed Thompson had been mistimed in the 110-meter hurdles as one one-hundredth of a second slower than his actual time.After decades of tumultuous modification in decathlon and heptathlon scoring, the tables set in 1984 are still in place. However, standout performances still earn more in certain events than they do in others: The system has a clear bias toward short-distance running events. This is in large part due to these running events having C (exponent) parameters all north of 1.8, significantly higher than throwing ones, which are between 1.0 and 1.1. It’s no surprise, then, that those who excel at decathlon/heptathlon specialize in sprinting, and their performances in those events closely mirror those of the specialists competing in the same individual events detached from the decathlon.The average top 10 decathlete/heptathlete generalist in running events performs at something around 90 percent of the average medal-winning specialists. However, in throwing events, the generalists’ distances are only roughly 70 percent of the average medal-winning specialists’.One might assume from these charts that top decathlete/heptathletes are uniformly tall, lean speed machines rather than brawny powerhouses that can hurl an object far distances, but the data suggests otherwise.The correlation between BMI (body mass index) and overall points for men and women is indeed negative, but only -0.060 and -0.109, respectively.Anecdotal evidence also doesn’t align with the notion that there’s a tradeoff between throwing strength and skill in other events: The winner of the competition has often been the best shot-putter in the field. But athletes are well aware of the minutiae and incentives of the scoring system before competing and train their bodies in such a way as to maximize points according to that system long before they hit the track. Thus, it’s likely that some stronger, heavier athletes simply decided before the competition either to slim down or not to compete.There are strong positive correlations between better performance in each of the short-distance running events and long jump5The correlations between the long jump and running events are technically negative, but running events aim for lower numbers– as in times — so in this sense, I’m calling them “positive.” (all of which heavily rely on flat-out sprinting speed). There’s also positive correlation between the shot put and discus throw (though the other throwing event, javelin, has little correlation with those two). All other events have only small correlations between them.Comparing which events correlate best to overall points, the men are highly correlated with long jump (0.74), while shot put, pole vault, discus throw and 1,500 meters each have correlations less than 0.50. For women, long jump (0.72) also correlates best with overall points, while javelin throw only correlates at 0.30. These findings corroborate research that shows that in the heptathlon, performance in speed events is overwhelmingly the biggest determinant in predicting overall success, dwarfing the importance of the strength and endurance events.After 30-plus years of scoring table peace, is there still room for reform?We don’t lack for options. John Barrow, a professor of mathematical sciences in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge, has proposed a physics-based system akin to the flawed 1954 model, but this time getting the science correct by using proportions based on kinetic energy. Another method, proposed by Wim Westera, a professor of digital media at the Open University of the Netherlands with a background in physics and math, attempts to construct a points model based on the frequency of performances. Also, researchers at Saarland University and the University of Kaiserslautern suggest a system based on standard deviations.Perhaps another way to tweak the system would be to award outlier performances even more generously. Such a system might diversify competitor body types by creating different “paths” one could take to decathlon/heptathlon glory. As of now, most competitors earn roughly 700-1,000 points per event across the board. But a highly progressive system would create larger disparities in where an athlete derives his or her points. Faster athletes would focus on the running cluster of events and rack up the majority of their points there, while stronger athletes could aim to take the throwing path to gold.Of course, none of these alternative scoring systems tackle the largest factor determining scores: the events themselves. The fact that the sprinting events and long jump so well correlate with each other puts a large premium on athletes who can reach top speeds.Another way of adjusting for this imbalance is possibly removing a speed-based event from the decathlon to make the enneathlon. Or adding another strength-focused event (e.g., hammer throw) to form the hendecathlon. Women could go down to the hexathlon or up to the octathlon. These charts unambiguously show where an athlete gets the best point return on performance, short-distance running, and it’s clear they’re investing their training accordingly. read more

40 attackers killed reporters taken hostage during uprising in DR Congo capital

first_imgNo civilian casualties have been reported and no victims in the security forces.Heavy gunfire erupted in several areas of the Congolese capital Kinshasa earlier today, including the international airport and the military headquarters, causing panic among residents.HostagePolice also said armed youths had taken hostage several reporters from the state television station RTNC in Kinshasa.Shooting was heard near the Tshatshi military camp as well as the international airport at Ndjili, residents and a local journalist said.Police officers, soldiers and the president’s Republican Guard fanned out across the capital to restore security, an AFP reporter saw.A police spokesman said earlier that journalists at RTNC had been taken hostage by armed youths, and the television feed had been cut.“They are armed with machetes and guns. They have taken reporters hostage. An operation is under way to dislodge them,” spokesman colonel Mwana Mputu told AFP.Before the station’s television feed was cut, two young presenters were seen on screen, appearing frightened but calm, with a young man standing behind them seemingly threatening them.DR Congo unrestThe DR Congo is a vast country rich in a wide range of minerals, where eastern provinces have been in turmoil since even before President Joseph Kabila took office in January 2001, following the assassination of his father, Laurent-Desire.The western capital has by contrast remained relatively calm, apart from an apparent coup bid in 2003 blamed by police on troops loyal to ousted dictator Mobutu Sese Seko, who was overthrown by Laurent-Desire Kabila in 1997. The uprising was rapidly quashed.A second coup bid attributed to renegade forces in the presidential guard took place in June 2004, but was also swiftly put down.The main persistent source of trouble in Kinshasa comes from gangs of unemployed armed youths known as “kuluna” who murder, rob and assault residents of the city. Kinshasa police on November 15 launched a three-month operation to tackle these gangs, raising UN complaints of summary executions.The latest insurgency in the capital comes the month after the national army, or FARDC, achieved a rare and striking military success in the strife-torn eastern North Kivu province over a powerful armed movement, the M23, which surrendered in neighbouring Uganda.Kabila’s troops were backed by a special intervention brigade of UN African soldiers, which had in March been given an unprecedented offensive role by the UN Security Council to neutralise the various armed movements that have plagued eastern DR Congo for more than two decades.- © AFP, 2013Read: “We hear of babies as young as five months being abducted and raped repeatedly”>Read: Number of child soldiers in CAR has nearly doubled since March> FORTY PEOPLE WHO took part in an uprising today in Kinshasa, taking hostages and firing at the airport and a military headquarters, have been killed, the DR Congo government said.“There were 16 who fell at the airport, eight who died at the RTNC (national radio and television) premises and 16 at the general staff headquarters,” government spokesman Lambert Mende told AFP.last_img read more

NVIDIA launches the Tegra Zone for Android devices

first_imgIf your smartphone is packing one of NVIDIA‘s powerful, dual-core Tegra 2 systems-on-a-chip, it just got a little bit easier to find software that will really show off your Android device’s power: they’ve just released the new Tegra Zone app for Tegra 2 based smartphones and tablets to the Android market, and it presents a nice showcase of games and software optimized for the SoC.Don’t think of this as another Marketplace. While Android already has too many places to get apps, the Tegra Zone is really just an attractive promotional app. If you’ve got a Tegra 2 enabled device — a genus which encompasses the Motorola Xoom, LG G-Slate, Motorola ATRIX 4G and other devices — downloading the Tegra Zone app will allow you to browse comprehensive reviews and previews of games like Dungeon Defenders: FW Deluxe, Samurai II: Vengeance THD, Backbreaker THD, Fruit Ninja THD, and Hardwood Solitaire IV, along with teasers of upcoming titles such as Galaxy on Fire and Hardwood Spades.Tegra Zone fully integrates with the Android Market, keeping the matter of downloading and updating your Tegra-enabled apps easier than if it was a competing marketplace unto itself.What NVIDIA’s banking on here is that their own showcase app will really underline the benefits of owning a Tegra-equipped Android phone. They’re hoping that a Tegra sticker on the side of an Android box will one day be just as much of a deciding factor in informing a consumer’s decision as an NVIDIA sticker is on the side of a desktop or a laptop. I’m not sure how likely that is — frankly, only the most silicon-obsessed of nerds care about their graphic cards, let alone their smartphone’s invisible SoC — but it’s a nice thought.last_img read more

State House per diems increased by 30 a day

first_imgOLYMPIA — House lawmakers have been receiving an extra $30 a day to be in Olympia since the start of the year.Deputy Chief Clerk Bernard Dean confirmed Thursday that the decision to increase lawmakers’ daily stipend — known as a per diem — from $90 a day to $120 a day was made by the House Executive Committee last month, and that it took effect retroactively to Jan. 1. The bipartisan committee — comprising five lawmakers — meets on issues including those involving personnel.Dean said the increased rate is still less than the $155 daily rate that state employees can claim when they travel to Thurston County. House per diem rates have been $90 since 2005, except for a two-year period, 2007-08, when they rose to $100 before dropping again.“This is not an extraordinary increase,” said House Majority Leader Pat Sullivan, a Democrat from Covington who is on the committee. “This is to enable people who have to come here and live here during session, and spend a great deal of time here at a great expense to them, to offset the costs.”The Senate has not made any changes to its per diem policy, though its members are aware of the changes made in the House, said Secretary of the Senate Hunter Goodman. Excluding leadership positions, a lawmaker’s salary is $42,106 a year, plus the per diem for expenses incurred for food and other costs while at the Capitol.Senate Republican Leader Mark Schoesler said there will be a conversation about Senate per diems during the next Senate Facilities and Operations Committee meeting. He said that while there may be varying opinions within his caucus, he’s not inclined to raise the $90-a-day stipend.last_img read more

SEARHC looking to pay between 25 to 40 million for new Wrangell

first_imgSoutheast Alaska Regional Health Consortium is continuing forward in acquiring Wrangell’s hospital. The Native nonprofit plans to build and operate a new hospital in the island town within the next three years.Listen nowA contract isn’t set in stone between SEARHC and the City of Wrangell. But both parties are eager to strike a deal.Last month, SEARHC made the offer to build and operate a new hospital. And SEARHC would take over the liability and operation of current Wrangell Medical Center until the new hospital is finished.Since that announcement, SEARHC scoped out the liabilities of the current hospital. It’s falling apart, a number of electrical, sewage and foundation issues are at the brink of failure. If everything went out all at once, it could cost up to $24 million. But SEARHC’s Vice President Dan Neumeister says that isn’t scaring them off.“What we anticipate might fail over the next couple of years is fairly small compared to that $20 million,” Neumeister said.SEARHC says it is looking to pay between $25 to $40 million to build the new hospital, which will connect to the current search clinic in town. It would span 44,500 square feet, and incorporate all the services Wrangell is used to, like emergency, primary and long-term care. The property could also provide more space for other services down the road.City officials and assembly members support the acquisition, saying it is a life boat for the city-owned hospital that is financially struggling to meet operation costs, let alone paying for a new facility that is desperately needed.Neumeister believes it’s a win-win situation. Small, city owned hospitals are struggling across the nation. Merging with larger organizations spreads more resources around.“Small hospitals that are independent, standalone facilities just don’t have the critical mass to sustain either reimbursement challenges or facility needs,” Neumeister said. “So the idea of becoming part of a larger system spreads that risk, and also allows the system to move their monies around to make sure that these small communities are successful and thrive.The next steps include a formal buy-in from the city, which could happen mid-June from the assembly. Then SEARHC’s board would need to do the same, and then spend three to four months drafting building designs and management plans. SEARHC could take over the current hospital in October of this year. A new hospital could be built by the beginning of 2021.last_img read more

Sony Patents Prescription VR Glasses

first_img British Airways Tests VR Entertainment on Select First-Class FlightsGeek Pick: HP Reverb Is Clear-Eyed Virtual Reality Stay on target By far the biggest thing holding back virtual reality, the gaming/tech world’s new golden child, is that no matter how immersive you make the worlds or how powerful you make the controls, people don’t want to play something that makes them physically sick. Strapping hardware to your head, having two different sort of unfocused images beamed to your eyes to make fake 3D, and moving through a space in a way that doesn’t totally line up with your senses makes you sick. It sucks!VR glasses can be especially bad for people who wear prescription glasses. Two different sets of lenses stacked on top of each other don’t always play nice. And the extra layer can get in the way of headtracking, which can exacerbate motion sickness even further when not smooth. So as more companies (even Nintendo!) invest more in VR tech, it’s cool that they are also investing in VR accessibility tech, like Sony just did with this new prescription glasses VR patent.Filed last week, this patent describes a system in which a VR headset (like Sony’s own PlayStation VR) would track a user’s glasses rather than their eyes. This would make tracking smoother and less confused while wearing glasses in VR. The glasses themselves would need some adjustments, some kind of embedded tech for the headset to register. But that could just be in the frame.The lenses themselves would still be a user’s prescription so they could, you know, actually see the game. There’s already precedent for tech takes on prescription glasses, like the Gunnar Haus Computer Glasses. This is just the next, VR step.Anything that makes more tech more usable for more people is a good thing. So hopefully this prescription VR patent eventually becomes a real product. Can they make something that fixes VR hair next?For more on PlayStation VR check out our recent hands-on with cool upcoming games like Iron Man VR, No Man’s Sky VR, and Trover Saves The Universe.
