Madagascar Ban urges leaders to build on momentum for unity government

7 October 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today called on Madagascar’s leaders to quickly conclude talks on a transitional government following progress made under United Nations-backed mediation in the crisis that led to the President’s ouster earlier this year. The UN will remain engaged in the process through the Joint Mediation Team on Madagascar, chaired by former president of Mozambique Joaquim Chissano, he said in a statement issued by his spokesperson, urging the leaders to make the necessary concessions to ensure that the transitional process runs smoothly.“It [the UN] is committed to support the full implementation of the Maputo agreements and a rapid return to constitutional order through credible elections,” he added, referring to the accord reached in the Mozambican capital in August committing the parties to a government of national unity after months of turmoil and political violence in the Indian Ocean island.President Marc Ravalomanana resigned in early March amid a dispute with Andry Rajoelina, mayor of the capital, Antananarivo, who now leads the country. Yesterday in Antananarivo, UN Special Envoy Tiébilé Dramé read a communiqué from the International Contact Group on Madagascar supporting the Government’s request that sanctions imposed on the country be lifted.The communiqué also endorsed Madagascar’s request for international financial aid, backing for the political transition, including preparations for agreed-upon elections, and support for development and other aid projects. read more

Feds accuse Silicon Valley firm of hiring bias

Feds accuse Silicon Valley firm of hiring bias by Brandon Bailey, The Associated Press Posted Sep 26, 2016 5:51 pm MDT Last Updated Sep 26, 2016 at 6:47 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email SAN FRANCISCO – The U.S. Department of Labor has filed a lawsuit accusing a fast-growing Silicon Valley software company of systematically discriminating against Asian job applicants.Palantir Technologies was co-founded by prominent tech financier Peter Thiel, with backing from an investment arm of the CIA, and was recently valued at $20 billion. The privately held company makes powerful data-analytics software used by U.S. military, intelligence and law-enforcement agencies, along with banks, insurance companies and other non-government clients.The unusual lawsuit — which comes as Silicon Valley is grappling with broader criticism for a lack of diversity — claims Palantir “routinely eliminated” Asian job candidates during the resume-screening and telephone-interview stages of the company’s hiring process. The claims are based on a statistical analysis conducted by federal officials responsible for making sure government contractors comply with anti-discrimination rules.Palantir denied the allegations Monday and said it will contest the suit. It argued in a statement that the government’s case “relies on a narrow and flawed statistical analysis relating to three job descriptions from 2010 to 2011.”A spokeswoman didn’t respond to questions about the ethnic makeup of Palantir’s workforce. But the statement added: “The results of our hiring practices speak for themselves.” Palantir is based in Palo Alto, California, and employs more than 1,800 people.The federal lawsuit comes as leading Silicon Valley tech companies are struggling to answer criticism about a lack of diversity in staffing. One legal expert said the federal lawsuit may reflect a broader aim by the government “to shed more light and get more accountability” from the tech industry.“It’s the new economy, but we still want to make sure there aren’t new forms of discrimination in these industries,” said Orly Lobel, a University of San Diego law professor who’s studied Silicon Valley hiring patterns.Another leading tech company recently agreed to pay $750,000 in back wages to settle discrimination claims brought by the Labor Department, without admitting wrongdoing. Those charges involved African-Americans, Asians and Hispanics who sought inside sales jobs at an Arkansas data-processing facility operated by Hewlett Packard Enterprise, the government announced last week. In a statement, HPE said, “we are confident in our hiring processes and we will continue to promote and build a diverse and inclusive workforce.”In recent years, Apple, Google, Facebook and other prominent Silicon Valley corporations have acknowledged they employ disproportionately low numbers of women, African Americans and Latinos, compared with the general population. Hiring figures released by those larger companies generally show that employees of South and East Asian descent are better represented.The federal lawsuit against Palantir, however, focuses on Asian job candidates because they applied in relatively large numbers. Rose Darling, a senior trial attorney for the Labor Department, said the government’s analysis showed a disproportionate number of Asian applicants were rejected for positions at the company.For example, the suit alleges that Asians made up 77 per cent of a pool of more than 730 qualified applicants for the job of quality assurance engineer at Palantir. The company hired one Asian and six non-Asians, according to the Labor Department’s compliance office, which calculated the statistical likelihood of that result is one in 741.For another position, described as an engineering intern, the lawsuit said there’s a “one in a billion” chance that Palantir’s hiring pattern occurred by chance.While the analysis involved hiring statistics for 2010 and 2011, Darling said the company hasn’t shown evidence that it has changed its practices since then.Appellate courts have allowed the use of statistical analyses in discrimination claims because it’s rare to find more explicit evidence, like a memo that says “Don’t hire” from a certain group, Lobel said.“You used to have ‘smoking guns,’ but that’s more rare these days,” she said. “So the courts are recognizing that you can prove discrimination by showing that the odds that this would be the result, without discrimination, are just so low.”The lawsuit is the first of its kind brought against a Silicon Valley company in recent years, Darling said. She declined to say if other investigations are pending.The suit was filed with the Labor Department’s Office of Administrative Law Judges, which is a quasi-judicial system within the department. The outcome of the case can be appealed to the regular federal court system. read more

No deja vu Secondhalf comeback fails for OSU

The Ohio State men’s basketball team’s 15-game home win streak and nine-game conference win streak came to an end Wednesday night after a 60-57 loss to No. 4 Purdue. The story of the game was Purdue’s first-half dominance. In front of the first sell-out crowd of the season at the Schottenstein Center, the Boilermakers jumped out to an early lead and led for all 40 minutes of Wednesday’s game. With just more than seven minutes remaining in the first half, junior Evan Turner converted a three-point play and for the first time all night the capacity crowd erupted. The jubilation was short lived, however, as Purdue’s Keaton Grant immediately responded with a four-point play at the other end. The crowd again rose to its feet when junior Jon Diebler made the team’s first three-point basket with less than a minute ago. But again, the Boilermakers answered, this time with a three-point play. In the first half “they made some shots and some of us didn’t have our heads right,” Turner said. “As a unit we didn’t execute how we were supposed to.”Purdue led by 13 at the break and although the Buckeyes got as close as 48-46 late in the second half, the first half struggles proved to be too much to overcome. OSU had one last chance in the waning moments when Diebler took and missed a potential game-tying three-pointer as time expired. “I got a good look,” Diebler said. “I should have knocked it down. There’s really no excuses.”Unlike in last month’s game at Purdue, the Buckeyes did a much better job of containing junior Robbie Hummel. Hummel torched Ohio State 35 points in the first meeting, but was held to just four Wednesday.However, OSU simply had no answer for junior JaJuan Johnson. After scoring a season-low four points in the first meeting between these two teams, Johnson led the way offensively for the Boilermakers. He scored a team-high 24 points on 11-17 shooting. “He made shots and those were some tough shots,” Diebler said. “That’s a heck of a basketball player right there.”As expected, Turner handled the bulk of the load for the Buckeyes and scored a game-high 29 points. With the loss, OSU dropped to 10-4 in conference play, but the Buckeyes have little time to regroup. They travel to East Lansing, Mich., Sunday to play the Big Ten’s first-place team. “You have to be honest with yourself and say ‘OK what didn’t we do well?’ but we have another tremendous challenge down the pipe,” coach Thad Matta said. “I told the guys after the game, we have to be a better basketball team on Sunday.” read more

Andrea Rock Massey got 2,819 thumbs up after a gunman made an attempted hit on the life of criminal John Gilligan in a Dublin pub:I think this was just an attempt by Gilligan to have Garda protection awarded to him. Never before has the gunman walked into a pub shouting the name of the person they were there to shoot. They typically seem to know exactly where the intended “victim” is sitting.

Every day several thousand comments are left on the site, shaping the discussion and kickstarting some lively debates (and despite what some commenters might believe, only a tiny number ever have to be deleted…).We’ve compiled a list of the 10 comments which received the most thumbs up from other readers this year. As you might expect, many of the most popular comments were among the first posts on a breaking news story, expressing what many people felt about an issue. Some were funny, some insightful and some were sympathetic.So here’s the 10 comments with the most thumbs up this year (all thumb figures correct as of 20 December). And before you ask – no, we’re not going to do a list of the comments which received the most thumbs down. That would be too cruel.1.

The Cynic got 2,368 thumbs up after inmates at Mountjoy Prison poured water and sugar down the throat of the man who killed 16-year-old Melanie McCarthy McNamaraTwo wrongs?What on earth is wrong with the commenters here? This guy is a drug addict and gang member, who killed another drug gang member. All involved known to gardai. She was due to marry the intended victim (another drug gang member) in a few days, and was sitting in his car with him. While she wasn’t the intended victim that day, she was not exactly walking past with no links to this criminal whatsoever.And now someone else in a drug gang has paid to kill this man in prison.Neither the girl, nor this guy should be dead. It is not improving matters to keep killing, one after another. What happens next, this guys family take out a hit on whoever murders him, perhaps in his daughters name? And yet another bystander gets hurt.I fail to see how perpetuating this kind of barbarism helps our crime problem in this country. 4. Stone.walled got 2,610 thumbs up after Bus Éireann passengers were reportedly terrorised by a rowdy group of people who threw urine around the coach.It’s the bus drivers responsibility for his passengers.All he had to do was ring the guards on the quiet and have them meet the bus at the next town.last_img read more

Melbourne marks Cyprus invasion anniversary

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Hundreds turned out in Melbourne last Sunday to show their support for the people of Cyprus and to mark the 41st anniversary of the Turkish invasion.Young and old joined the march that ended at the steps of the Victorian parliament, bearing banners which declared ‘Human rights for all Cypriots’ and ‘Justice for Cyprus’. Keynote speaker of the event was Cyprus’ Minister of Agriculture Nikos Kougiales, who was in Australia on an official visit to coincide with the commemorations.“Ten years after the Annan Plan, the conditions have matured. The international community and policy moves at a different pace,” Mr Kougiales said, adding that he was optimistic about negotiations currently underway. “We’re very optimistic on the way President Anastasiades and the new Turkish leader Mustafa Akinci are handling the issue. “[Mr Akinci’s] attitude shows that we can talk and that this dialogue is honest. Of course we have our differences but our own side is prepared for tough negotiations so we can get a solution that will be of the benefit of both sides. It looks like we are on a positive path,” the minister said.Addressing the crowd, Mr Kougiales added that he and Cyprus were grateful for their ongoing solidarity. “You are ambassadors … [and] we’re grateful for your support and for bringing the issue to the forefront”.Other speakers at the rally included Victorian Labor MP Jenny Mikakos, the president of the Pan-Australian Justice for Cyprus Coordinating Committee (PASEKA) Mr Kostas Elisaiou, and president of the Victorian branch of SEKA, Mr Constantinos Procopiou.last_img read more

WATCH This years lamb ad takes multicultural approach

first_imgAhead of Australia Day, Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) have launched their lamb campaign, but this year’s ad comes with a slight twist. With no direct mention of the national holiday celebrated on January 26, the ad starts off with a small group of Indigenous people looking for a spot to host a barbecue. Soon after a diverse range of people start arriving on boats, before they all eventually unite over their love for the meat.“Ultimately, as the face of Australia continues to evolve and change, we need to make lamb relevant to a diverse, modern Australia,” MLA group marketing manager Andrew Howie said in a press statement on Thursday.“This campaign does that by celebrating the diversity of Australia.”Once the nation’s First Peoples locate a suitable spot to set up their barbecue, soon they are joined by the Dutch who arrive by boat, followed by the British.“We are the first fleet,” says one of the British characters.“Yeah, not quite, mate,” responds one of the Aboriginal hosts, while the others laugh.It’s not long before the French arrive offering cheese, followed by the Germans. Then the Chinese, Italians, Greeks, Serbians and countries from the Pacific region arrive and the scene becomes one of various ethnicities from around the globe. And then a smaller boat approaches.The line that follows: “Look, it’s the boat people”, is a clear reference to the Australian government’s ‘stop the boats’ policy.“Hang on aren’t we all boat people?” a guest responds, to which another adds “And you’re welcome!” before they all start to applaud.Finally the ad ends with a guest thanking the Indigenous hosts for having them.“Best in the world,” a host responds.The campaign doesn’t only reflect on the matters colonisation, migration and multiculturalism, but sexual diversity featuring a Mardi Gras float.View the campaign in full here: Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

How does the UKs support for working parents compare with other countries

first_imgOne of the many considerations for working parents is how to juggle their career and working hours with a blossoming family life. Ben Black, director and founder at My Family Care, says: “There’s no distinction between work and family now like there used to be 30 years ago. People used to go to work or people used to stay at home and look after the family; the two were completely different.”But how does the UK’s approach to support for working parents compare to provision in other countries?Do statutory rights offer enough support?With incremental changes in statutory support appearing over the past few years, UK maternity leave now consists of 52 weeks in total. For the first six weeks, the minimum a woman will be paid is 90% of her average earnings with no pay ceiling, while the following 33 weeks are paid at a flat minimum rate of £139.58 a week and the remaining 13 weeks are unpaid.However, Dr Alison Koslowski, senior lecturer in social policy at the University of Edinburgh, says: “£139.58 is not very much if you think about how that compares to the minimum wage: it’s at least half the minimum wage so it’s not very generous. As a result, a lot of employers top it up.”UK maternity pay may be at the lower end of the spectrum, according to the 11th International review on leave policies and related research 2015, published by the International Network on Leave Policies and Research in June 2015, however, there are seven countries in the report that do not have a statutory paid maternity leave entitlement. Instead, Australia, Iceland, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal and Sweden offer paid parental leave. In contrast, the US makes no guarantee of paid provision nationally for women during pregnancy and childbirth.Sweden takes pride in being incredibly family-friendly when it comes to supporting working parents. This is evident in the country’s parental leave policies, which see parents have a total of 480 paid days off, with 90 days allocated specifically to each parent. The days cannot be transferred between the two parents, further encouraging fathers to take leave rather than lose their entitlement. In addition, Sweden offers one parent an additional 10 days off in connection to the birth, which is increased to 20 additional days if the parents have had twins. Adoptive parents get the same allocation as birth parents, while single parents are allowed the entire 480 days.Statutory support plays a key role in how involved employers are with own benefits offering for working parents and carers. According to Creating longer, more fulfilling working lives: employer practice in five European countries, published by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) in May 2016, Denmark provides a well-developed and generous statutory support, meaning that employers do not have to include this in their benefits programmes. Rachel Suff, public policy advisor, employment relations at the CIPD, says: “Through the different welfare model, the state takes responsibility for both ends of the caring spectrum to a much greater extent for children and eldercare.”Due to these differences, for example, Denmark is not really comparable to the UK in this sense, although the support provided, whether this be statutory or employers, also depends on frameworks in place, adds Suff. For example, the CIPD study found that France takes a very legislative approach to employment while in the UK results indicated a regulated labour market.In turn, this affects how employers can offer support to carers. Suff adds: “It’s much more about encouraging employers to be proactive and realise that if they don’t put these measures in place, they are likely to lose people from the workforce because there is a significant majority of people leaving because they can’t juggle different demands.”Practical supportWorkplace nurseries and crèches are practical avenues of support that can help working parents. Paul Quartly, head of business development at Bright Horizons, says: “There are very few things that an employer can do that will have more value for a working parent than to set up a workplace nursery. When an employer offers a workplace nursery, the response from employees is huge in terms of levels of engagement, levels of loyalty, and also in terms of affordability.”In some countries, such as Canada, they are not the norm. Nora Spinks, chief executive officer at the Vanier Institute of the Family, says: “A lot of [Canadian] workplaces can’t get licensed on site for the facility and operations. Within the UK, regulations are a little bit different so it’s easier.”The influence of city bombings in North America, such as 9/11 and the Oklahoma bombing, which impacted buildings containing workplace nurseries, may also play a part in steering some employers away from offering these on site, says Spinks.Childcare vouchers are one of the most popular ways in the UK for employers to assist working parents, giving employees the opportunity to pay for a proportion of their childcare fees on a tax and national insurance-free basis. Jo Dalby, finance director at Busy Bees, says: “Not all employers offer childcare vouchers, which is ridiculous because employers also save money.”In other countries, such as Canada, however, such schemes look very different. “We don’t have the same kind of industry here,” says Spinks. “We don’t have those kinds of chains or network of services that are national. We do have programmes [such as] Kids in Company, which [is] employer-supported childcare but not the same kind of voucher programme. If an employer were to give a voucher in Canada, it would be a taxable benefit. In the UK, it’s considered pre-tax,” she explains.Another factor influencing Canadian support for working parents is the concept of universality, with childcare-focused unions and communities taking a stance against both vouchers and workplace nurseries. Spinks says: “Every child should have access to high-quality pre-school care and it shouldn’t be dependent on who [an employee] works for. So employers [that] provide these vouchers or special access to childcare services infringe on the concept of universality.”However, Canadian employers do support both men and women financially when it comes to maternity and parental leave, with the majority of employers offering top-ups to add to statutory payments. This ensures that staff receive their full salary for the whole period of maternity or parental leave.With different countries offering a variety of childcare and parental benefits, there are a number of lessons UK employers can take from overseas provision. In a nutshell, it is important for employers to be aware of the statutory benefits working parents can claim and to then be able to spot potential gaps that could cause employees stress with regards to caring for their family. If employers can adopt a proactive mindset when assisting working parents, this could lead to a reduction in work-related stress, as well as a better work-life balance for staff.Viewpoint: Well-paid leave for all could drive paternity leave take-upWhen women and men call our advice line, their big concern is money. Whether they are calling about redundancy, sick leave, health and safety, leave entitlements or pregnancy discrimination, their primary concern is how they are going to make ends meet. Babies cost money and moving onto maternity, paternity or shared parental pay means a substantial drop in income for most families.We would like to see an increase in the flat rate of statutory maternity, paternity and shared parental pay and maternity allowance (currently set at £139.58). A payment equivalent to the minimum wage would be a useful starting point, and we could work towards wage replacement pay.This is consistent with good practice in Europe. Germany pays the first 14 weeks of leave at full wage replacement, then 10 to 12 months at two-thirds of earnings. Even Poland, a significantly less wealthy country, offers 26 weeks at 100% of income followed by 26 weeks at 60%.Increased pay will help promote greater equity in leave taking between men and women. International evidence is clear that increased take-up of leave by fathers is dependent on leave being well paid. One option is to give fathers a reserved period of well-paid leave, matching the first six weeks of statutory maternity pay.We do not expect this approach to generate much change. If fathers only get a few weeks of well-paid leave, then they are likely to take just a few weeks of leave. But if all leave is well paid, then we have a realistic chance of shifting the current, inequitable patterns of leave taking between mothers and fathers.Can we afford to increase maternity, paternity and shared parental pay? Between 2010 and 2014, the government axed the Health in Pregnancy Grant, restricted the Sure Start Maternity Grant to first babies, means-tested child benefit and reduced the real value of statutory maternity pay and statutory paternity pay. This reduced benefits and statutory payments to new parents by £1.5 billion per year. Perhaps some of these ‘savings’ could be redirected into better-paid leave.Rosalind Bragg is director at Maternity Action Need to know:The less support for working parents the state provides, the more benefits employers might consider offering to staff.Practical support measures that employers offer to working parents in the UK include childcare vouchers, workplace nurseries, flexible-working arrangements and access to networks and counselling.While other countries may offer different statutory support, childcare vouchers are not as widely offered as in the UK. Sackers offers a range of support measures to working parentsLaw firm Sackers has received external recognition for its dedication to forging a family-friendly work environment, scooping the Best for all stages of motherhood award at the Working Families Awards 2016. Using the statutory requirements as a base-level guideline when it comes to benefits and support, the firm has endeavoured to provide a range of options to help support and retain working mothers and fathers.As well as enhanced maternity, paternity and shared parental leave, the organisation, which has around 100 employees, provides expectant staff with a resource pack with information on maternity policies, as well as practical details on how to manage pregnancy. There is also further information about giving birth, health and nutrition during pregnancy, childcare options and childcare vouchers. Julia Perrin, director at Sackers, says: “There’s a little book that we put in there that has top tips for working parents, which I think people find quite helpful.”For lawyers at the firm, Sackers provides an external coaching programme that supports mothers-to-be at every phase of pregnancy. This is supplemented with an internal mentoring scheme where new mums are paired with partners within the organisation who have been through maternity leave and returning to work themselves. “[The partners] can be a sounding board and provide support and guidance on things that they found helpful,” says Perrin.As well as liaising with external networks, such as the City Fathers Network, Sackers also hosts webinars on every aspect of parenting life, covering topics such as choosing childcare, tackling working parent guilt, keeping children safe on the internet and how to choose secondary schools.Flexible working is also a key initiative at Sackers, with 30% of employees utilising this arrangement to improve their work-life balance. This includes staff at senior levels.Perrin adds: “I think it really boils down to recognising family life is important and it’s really about providing a working culture that allows people to juggle work and home. In the last five years, all of the lawyers who have taken maternity leave have come back to work, which is good.”last_img read more

Why games on the Apple Watch and Apple TV failed

first_imgMobile gaming is huge. Accept this. You’ve had years to get over it. The 3DS is a successful handheld with a lot of great games, but smartphones definitely ate some of its lunch after they were done smothering the PlayStation Vita in the crib. For better or worse, a lot of gameplay concepts popularized in mobile (like free-to-play mechanics) have also disrupted more traditional console and PC games. A hit mobile game, Angry Birds, recently soared into theaters. As for who’s leading the charge, while the Android gaming ecosystem is just fine, Apple’s App Store is arguably the more prestigious mobile gaming marketplace. If you want to play great mobile games, it pays to have an iPhone or iPad. So, why can’t Apple replicate that success on its other platforms?Before lamenting the disappointing state of Apple TV and Apple Watch TV games, it’s important to reiterate the strength of iPhone and iPad games. I’ve been covering mobile gaming for years now, and while it has more than its fair share of problems (clones, exploitative freemium models, lack of quality control) hardcore gamers seriously underrate the category. Not having buttons means the platform isn’t ideal for games that need speed, precision, and complexity all at once. But there are amazing mobile games that feature some of those qualities. Canabalt and Spider: Secret of Bryce Manor are platformers so innovative they invented a new genres. Ports of RPGs, strategy games, and adventure games like The World Ends With You, The Banner Saga, and Her Story play great on a tablet. I can’t tell you how many times Threes has drained my phone’s battery. It’s one of the best puzzle games of all time. App Store games may have been iffy at launch, but it now has more than enough excellent examples that prove the potential of the service.The same can’t be said of Apple’s other iOS-adjacent devices. Let’s start with the Apple Watch. It wasn’t instantaneous, but it didn’t take too long for iPhone game developers to figure out how to apply what they learned to the iPad and its larger screen — how to make their games scale to both devices or develop games that only made sense on tablets. The fact that the screen sizes and resolutions began to blur into each other helped. The tiny Apple Watch touchscreen called for its own totally new kinds of game design, but a year later the market just hasn’t delivered.There were attempts. Games like Spy_Watch, which turned your watch into an espionage gadget, were an early, obvious choice. Since the Apple Watch requires an iPhone to function, a simple puzzle game like Letterpad could just mirror what was happening on the phone on your wrist. Virtual pet games like Toby were also another promising avenue, but all of these games had less energy and impact than even the most casual iPhone game. It’s telling some of the most prominent Apple Watch games were mindless incremental clickers inspired by jokes like Candy Box and Cookie Clicker, or a totally passive game like Watch Quest. Is your favorite part of a mobile game waiting for a timer to recharge your energy. What if a game were nothing but that?Maybe if the Apple Watch was more successful developers would be more motivated to create quality games for it. It’s definitely one of, if not the most, successful smartwatches, and 13 million sold is no number to scoff at, but that’s far below the hundreds of millions of iPhones and iPads sold. Perhaps the failure of Apple Watch games is merely a symptom of the larger failure of smartwatches as a product category?That doesn’t explain the failure of Apple TV games, though. People have loved playing video games on their TV since the dawn of the medium. Meanwhile, the App Store model is a superb, convenient way to access tons of great games on your TV. Everyone expected the gaming-enabled Apple TV to make good on the promise of those forgettable Android micro-consoles like the Ouya or Nvidia Shield and use mobile gaming’s formidable power to strike at the heart of console gaming.So, what happened? Along with a sales issue similar to the Apple Watch, In my opinion, what made gaming on the Apple TV such a non-starter was a collection of small choices that reflected Apple’s general apathy bordering on antipathy for gaming, a space the company tolerates on mobile but does shockingly little to actually foster. It’s like if the Wii U didn’t have a first party as talented and passionate as Nintendo supporting it. The Apple TV remote was a cool controller that combined buttons, a touchscreen, and motion sensors, but why was there no official traditional gamepad from Apple? Why did we have to rely on poor third party Bluetooth controllers. Nintendo was smart enough to make standard controllers alongside the more innovative Wii remote.Meanwhile, the games themselves didn’t demonstrate the increase in scale and production value you’d expect from a console game, even a casual one. It also lacked the breadth of mobile gaming to mitigate the lack of depth. Harmonix’s Beat Sports was an okay launch title, and it’s always nice seeing an pretty indie puzzle game like Peg Ballet on the big screen, but the most fun I had on the Apple TV was playing Transistor, a console game that was already ported to mobile. Plus, limited memory required file restrictions that hamstrung developers who may have wanted to create more ambitious games. Again, the App Store model is great for games distribution, but its Apple TV incarnation, tvOS, failed to properly take advantage of it. Hopefully, that means consoles are safe after all, at least for now.Maybe the real answer is that the healthy state of iOS gaming is just an anomaly when it comes to Apple and games. It’s not like the Mac has ever been a widely beloved gaming platform. Or maybe Apple can only create a thriving gaming ecosystem when it dominates a space as thoroughly as the iPhone and iPad dominate smartphones and tablets, respectively. So, if games on the Apple Watch and Apple TV are any indication, I can’t wait to see how bad games are on the Apple Car.last_img read more

5 Nascent Technologies That Will Radically Shape the Future

first_img Technology is changing at an incredible pace, so fast in fact that many industries and individuals are having a hard time keeping up. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, an investor, or just plain curious, these are the fields to keep an eye on in the next decade, and the ones most likely to mint a new generation of millionaires and billionaires.1. Artificial Intelligence.Google’s AI program AlphaGo recently beat a world class human player at the game of Go, which many experts believed was years away from being possible. As of last year, Google’s Cloud Vision AI was as good as or better than a human at recognizing the contents of images (so was Microsoft’s AI for that matter). Facebook’s AI team has built a facial recognition program that may well be the best in the world.While we are still likely many years away from artificial general intelligence, or strong AI (the type of potentially Terminator/Skynet AI folks like Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking are concerned about), the advances being made in the AI field are nonetheless staggering. Because advances in AI allow the ability to rapidly automate many tasks that used to require humans, with fewer errors, there is a tremendous amount of wealth to be made in this industry.Related: Elon Musk: Artificial Intelligence Is Humanity’s ‘Biggest Existential Threat’2. Human longevity.It has long been believed that death is inevitable, but science is beginning to show signs that death might be a disease that can be conquered. While the claim is bold, there is evidence to support it.There’s a term in the field of human longevity known as negligible senescence, which is a fancy way of saying a thing doesn’t seem to age. There are creatures on our planet, such as the lobster, whose cells show no signs of aging. If some plants and animals don’t age, why should humans have to? Researchers such as Aubrey de Gray are working to understand precisely why humans age when some creatures and how to potentially reverse, or even prevent, aging.Research being done surrounding CRISPR Cas9 and genetic engineering are also showing numerous potential ways to increase human lifespan. For example, scientists have found that deleting a handful of genes could potentially increase human lifespan by 60 percent, which seems incredible.Science is still a far cry from biological immortality, but it isn’t unreasonable to say that the average human could live to 120 or more, in good health, in the not-too-distant future. The value of the anti-aging market is in the many hundreds of billions of dollars…not a bad space in which to stake a claim.Related: The Obsession With ‘Curing’ Aging Is Now Big Business3. Virtual Reality / Augmented Reality2016 is lining up to be the year of VR, with AR close on its heels. To be fair, the technology coming out now is a far cry from perfect, and in many ways isn’t truly consumer ready (visually, it feels about on par with mid-to-late 90s PC games…not awesome).Polished or not, the VR we are seeing today is better than anything we’ve seen in the past, and the promise of what VR could become in a few more years is tantalizing. VR could become as revolutionary in the long-term as the Internet has been.The possibilities of the technology, from business and travel to education and entertainment, are rich and vast. When might that happen? I’d wager three to five years for it to be awesome, and probably 10 years for it to be lifelike. That’s a huge window for some savvy entrepreneurs to make a mint.Related: Virtual Reality Is Proving a Powerful Vehicle for Disaster Relief, Social Causes4. Biotechnology and materials science.Did you know that scientists have created a material that is almost as light as air, but that can support large amounts of weight and can insulate incredibly well? There are man-made leaves, self-healing materials and materials including Graphene that could make current battery technology obsolete.Many of these man-made materials are inspired by things found in nature. Biomimetics is among the most fascinating research topics in the world today. Technology is making it cheaper and easier to create new materials inspired by nature, but better than anything currently known in nature. Best of all, these sorts of innovations can be patented and then licensed to major corporations, which means potentially big bucks to the inventors for a very long time.5. Alternative transportation.From electric cars that can drive themselves to modernized public transport such as the Hyperloop to human-sized drones and hover boards (real ones, not those silly two-wheeled contraptions that catch on fire), we are entering an era of potentially dramatic change on the transportation front.We now have drones that can deliver packages, rockets that can get things to space on the cheap (though they still struggle with coming back down), and even jetpacks for goodness sake. If you have ideas in the transportation space, now is the time to dive in, because the traditional air and ground transportation industries are ripe for disruption.Related: Elon Musk’s SpaceX Plans Hyperloop ContestThere are of course numerous other technologies that can and will change the face of our world, from alternative energy and robotics to 3D printing and quantum computing, but these five in particular will be front and center over the next decade.What are some technologies or advances you’ve seen recently that you think people should be aware of?

New York New York – Reported by Elite Traveler t

first_imgNew York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineHarry Winston kicked off the holiday season with a history-making display of gems that honored the legacy of the iconic brand’s founder and namesake. The New York City Fifth Avenue flagship boutique hosted “The Court of Jewels,” an invitation-only exhibition of jewelry and individual stones with a total value of over $1 billion, and touted as the largest single showing of fine jewelry ever. It was a thrilling collection of treasures, from a vintage early-20th century tiara to legendary stones like the Star of Bengal ruby and Lesotho I diamond, plus unset, rare gemstones—green, pink, and blue diamonds, a paperweight-sized aquamarine, brilliant Paraiba tourmalines—awaiting placement in brand new designs. Celebrities attending the event, Halle Berry, Rachel Roy and Hilary Rhoda among many, ceded their customary place as the center of attention in any room to the glittering spectacle.The festivities culminated with the unveiling of the Hope Diamond in a spectacular new setting created to celebrate Harry’s Winston’s donation of the gem to The Smithsonian Institution 50 years ago. The 45.52-carat fancy blue diamond with a fabled history and owners including Marie Antoinette and Evalyn Walsh McLean, now receives 7 million visitors annually at its permanent home in the National Gem Collection, thanks to Winston’s generosity. And the spirit of generosity continues, the house has just launched an initiative to donate 5% or pre-tax profits to support educational causes.www.harrywinston.comlast_img read more

Teenage offenders to be given alternative to court

first_imgCriminal offenders aged 14 to 18 will be dealt with outside the judicial system, Justice Minister Ionas Nicolaou said on Tuesday, announcing a cabinet-approved decision to introduce alternative processes for young offenders.“We have completed legislation on youth delinquency, allowing underage offenders from 14 to 18 – because no criminal liability can be awarded for those younger than 14 – to be offered an alternative to court treatment,” Nicolaou said.“It is an out-of-court treatment of children, as well as, in the cases that do go to court, different procedures than the current regime, thus ensuring a child-focused approach to trying to return a child to legality.”This is a great modernising measure, which will be implemented for the first time, the minister said.“Cyprus law is modernising and coming in line with the law of modern states – more particularly, European Union member states,” he said.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
