Justin Bieber Techs 2010 Person of the Year

first_imgWho is 2010’s tech person of the year? Is it Mark Zuckerberg, the world’s youngest billionaire, who helped transform Facebook into a global juggernaut, donated absurd amounts of money to charity, and was the basis for the year’s most critically acclaimed film?What about Steve Jobs, who turned the tech world on its head yet again with the introduction of the iPad, which kickstarted the consumer tablet market?Maybe it’s Meg Whitman, or Carly Fiorina, who both parlayed CEO jobs at prominent tech companies into much-publicized bids for office in California.I would like to throw my support behind another candidate–that’s right, Justin Bieber (OMG, et al). The 16-year-old Canadian pop singer earned a top spot in tech headlines this year, thanks in no small part a seemingly permanent spot atop Twitter’s trending topics.Bieber made a name for himself after his young mother began uploading videos of her son performing song covers. He quickly built up a legion of absurdly loyal–and intense–fans who have grown up on social networking. As various social networks reveal their year-end lists of hot topics, the point is made all the more clear: 2010 was the year of the Bieber.

Apple to innovate iPad like crazy says Tim Cook

first_imgAmidst Apple’s earnings call for the December quarter (which saw record growth and revenue), some of the most interesting talk came from Tim Cook when he was asked about the iPad. Though it’s along the same lines as what we’ve heard in the past, Cook dropped some hints about Apple’s future and dismissed concerns about the Kindle Fire.When asked about the competition from budget tablets like the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet, Cook didn’t sound particularly worried. He said that these devices are basically eReaders with limited functionality. He acknowledged that some customers will buy them, but said that people who want an iPad won’t want to settle for such a “limited function” device. Take that, Jeff Bezos.Cook then continued with the frame that Steve Jobs presented at the iPad 2 event last year. In that keynote, Jobs had said that 2010 was “the year of the iPad,” and then asked rhetorically whether 2011 would be “the year of the copycats?” Of course not, he said; 2011 would also be the year of the iPad. Today Cook referenced that, saying that 2011 wasn’t, in fact, the Year of the Tablet, but was the second consecutive Year of the iPad. It’s all rhetoric, but sales figures agree with this assessment.Cook did throw us a little bone about the future of the iPad. Though Apple isn’t going to reveal any secrets until a product is being unveiled, he said that Apple is going to “continue to innovate like crazy” in the iPad area.What does this mean? Well, it’s the type of thing a CEO typically says about a product, but it also doesn’t sound like the point of view of a company that’s planning on sitting still. The next iPad will likely sport a 2048×1536 Retina display, an A6 (possibly quad-core) system-on-a-chip, and upgraded cameras. Would this constitute “innovating like crazy?” Probably — but don’t rule out Apple having something else up its sleeve come March. Siri? An Apple gaming platform? We’ll probably know in less than two months.last_img read more

Leaked iPhone 5 case can be rented for 7890 per day

first_imgIn the run up to the launch of the iPhone 5 we have seen more part leaks than for any other iPhone. It has gotten to the point where you can construct a near complete smartphone based on all the leaks, and unless Apple has been cleverly diverting us away from the truth with fake components, there will be few surprises come the expected launch date of September 12.All these leaks have been viewed as a money-making opportunity by some Chinese companies.The galleries of images appearing on Chinese websites apparently don’t come cheap, with NetEase explaining that in order to get your hands on different parts you should expect to pay, and pay a lot.For the supposed official iPhone 5 case you see in the images above, access was only given to capture shots and take measurements when a rent was paid. For 24 hours with the case you can expect to pay 50,000 Chinese yuan. That works out to around $7,890. In other words, it’s totally not worth paying for with no guarantee this is an official part.Some people will be willing to pay, though, and that’s what these companies or individuals are relying on. Who would pay? Most likely accessory manufacturers keen to get their iPhone 5 cases, screen protectors, and clip-on battery packs manufactured in time for Apple’s launch event. With a new dock connector expected too, there’s surely more demand than ever to get an early look and find out exactly how big it is and how it works.With that being the case, leaked iPhone 5 parts should generate quite a lot of profit over the coming weeks for anyone with access to the production lines.More at MIC Gadget and NetEaselast_img read more

Victory for the victims French court rules man who had sex with

Feb 14th 2018, 7:35 AM Short URL The hall of justice in Pontoise Source: AP/PA ImagesA COURT IN France has ruled that a 29-year-old man on trial for having sex with an 11-year-old girl must face rape charges, while declaring itself incompetent to rule in the highly controversial case.The court adjourned indefinitely after the man went on trial for sexual assault rather than rape, in a case that triggered an outcry after prosecutors judged that the sex was “consensual”, despite the girl’s young age.France does not treat sex between an adult and a minor as rape unless there is proof that force was used, and the government has vowed to introduce an age of consent.The local court in the Paris suburb of Pontoise said after a day of closed-door hearings that the man should be put on trial for rape, pushing the decision to a higher court.The girl’s family were outraged by the initial decision not to try him for rape, and their lawyer Carine Diebolt has hailed the ruling as “a victory for the victims”.“There is no question of consent when we’re talking about a child of 11 years,” she had told reporters before the trial opened.She has asked for the case to be adjourned and a rape charge to be applied, insisting that the child was shocked, intimidated and threatened by the defendant.center_img No Comments http://jrnl.ie/3850877 Defence lawyers Marc Goudarzian and Sandrine Parise-Heideiger, pictured outside court Source: AP/PA ImagesThe father of two children, then aged 28, approached the girl in a public area of a housing estate in Montmagny northwest of Paris.She performed oral sex in an elevator on the way to his apartment where they had penetrative sex.The defendant’s lawyer, Marc Goudarzian, cast doubt on the girl’s testimony and insisted his client thought the girl was 17 because she had passed puberty. “She wasn’t born yesterday,” Goudarzian added.In November last year, a man was acquitted of rape after having sex with an 11-year-old after a jury found no evidence that she had been forced into the relationship.And in another widely publicised case in November this year, a teacher was given a suspended jail sentence rather than a prison term, for having sex with a 14-year-old pupil.President Emmanuel Macron, who is married to his former schoolteacher, has proposed a new law that would make 15 the age of consent.Comments are closed for legal reasons© – AFP, 2018Read: United Airlines plane forced to make emergency landing after engine cover rips apart mid-flightRead: Boris Johnson is set to tell the world that NOT Brexiting would be a disaster Wednesday 14 Feb 2018, 7:35 AM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Lions reinforcements on way as Gatland set to announce 5 or 6

first_imgLions reinforcements on way as Gatland set to announce 5 or 6 call-ups Warren Gatland is set to bring in additional players for his midweek team. Short URL 42,982 Views Jun 16th 2017, 12:30 PM 83 Comments Share27 Tweet Email Follow us: the42.ie http://the42.ie/3447057 By Murray Kinsella Murray Kinsella reports from New ZealandTHE LIONS ARE set to bring a crop of reinforcements into their squad as they look to reduce the workload on their Test match 23.Warren Gatland will confirm the names of five or six players following this weekend’s fixtures involving Wales, Scotland, Ireland and England. Gatland will look to bring in fresh faces. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOThe Lions say this set of call-ups was always part of the plan, with Gatland understood to have discussed it with the four national team coaches.All Blacks coach Steve Hansen raised the prospect on Thursday, suggesting that Warren Gatland would call up a group of players in order to split his squad into a Test group and a midweek team to play against the Chiefs and Hurricanes.But Gatland himself had stated all the way back in September – when he was confirmed as Lions boss – that something of this nature was a possibility.“One thing that I spoke about in the interview process, the hardest game is the Chiefs game before the first Test,” said Gatland.“How do you protect that Test match 23? I know Wales are in the Islands, Scotland are in Australia, England-Argentina and Ireland-Japan, so there is potentially an opportunity to maybe bring in four or five to sit on the bench.“That is my thought process at the moment. You want to protect that Test 23. It made a massive difference in 2013, we had players on the bench, but not exposing the 15 to having to be involved. That is important.”And Gatland will now remain true to his word about calling in a group of players to augment the Lions squad for that Chiefs game, which takes place in Hamilton on Tuesday.Wales played Tonga in Auckland this morning, while Scotland face Australia in Sydney on Saturday, meaning they are likely to provide the bulk of the players added to the Lions squad. Ireland are in Japan, while England are touring Argentina.Gatland originally named a squad of 41 players, which had appeared to cover most bases, but he is keen to ensure that none of those involved in next weekend’s first Test against the All Blacks are involved versus the Chiefs.The42 is on Instagram!

This Irish Bar Holds the Record as the Worlds Oldest Pub –

first_imgAmong its many attractions, Ireland boasts some of the best pubs in the world. In fact, the Irish do traditional inns so well, they have become a global export, and you’re sure to find at least one Irish pub in any major town or city, wherever you are in the world. It’s no surprise, therefore, that the world’s oldest pub is to be found in Ireland. Sean’s Bar, in the bustling town of Athlone in central Ireland, is a popular watering hole that has been catering to thirsty customers since around 900 AD.Sean’s Bar, Athlone. Photo by Chris55 CC BY-SA 3.0According to The Irish Mirror, Sean’s Bar is officially included in the Guinness World Records as the oldest pub in the world, narrowly beating the Bingley Arms, another 1000-year-old establishment in Leeds, England.The pub was originally established around the turn of the 10th century when a local businessman decided to open an inn in order to take advantage of passing trade at the ford of the River Shannon.Sean’s bar music.

Photo by Serge Ottaviani CC BY-SA 4.0The ford and the inn soon attracted visitors and settlers, and over the following centuries, the site grew into an important town. A castle was even constructed here in the early 12th century, by local ruler, King Turlough O’Conner. The bustling trade that accompanied the expansion of the town continued to provide a regular clientele for the historic inn.Athlone – sean’s bar.

According to The Irish Mirror, they also found a number of coins dating from the same period, perhaps dropped by customers who had consumed one ale too many.Sean’s Pub – Oldest in Ireland.

They would then sprinkle sawdust on the floor to soak up the remaining water and prevent customers from slipping. This tradition is continued today, leaving the original floor of the pub in place.Related Video: American Slang words which come from the IrishAccording to The Journal, the reputation of Sean’s Bar has drawn an eclectic crowd over the years, and several famous faces have been spotted within its walls.

In fact, the rumor originated from a joke made between the previous owners and some mischievous punters.More recently, the pub has begun to explore the rich local history of which it is a part. In conjunction with the West Cork Distillery, the owners have developed a unique blended Irish whiskey, bearing the historic name of the pub.Sean’s Pub – Oldest bar in Ireland – 900AD.

China EU working on common approach on climate change

first_imgMogherini, a former Italian foreign minister, is making her first visit to Asia since taking over as the EU’s high representative for foreign and security policy in November. She also visited South Korea and met with President Park Geun-hye.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Sponsored Stories “On climate change, let me say that the European Union appreciates very much the role that China has been playing and is playing,” Mogherini told reporters in Beijing.A unified EU-China approach will help make the Paris talks a success, something that is a “common joint responsibility,” she said.A leading U.S. envoy for climate change expressed similar sentiments on a visit to Beijing in March. That appears to be raising hopes for a global plan to cut greenhouse emissions following the last U.N. climate summit in 2009 which ended without a significant agreement.China is the world’s biggest emitter and has pledged to level off carbon emissions by around 2030. That commitment has garnered widespread affirmation, although some experts say China’s emissions need to peak much earlier to stave off major climate consequences.Mogherini addressed reporters during a break in talks with Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi, the government’s senior foreign policy adviser. She said discussions also touched on major global issues and concerns over human rights and Beijing’s restrictions on civil society.Mogherini said the sides agreed on the need for a negotiated settlement to the conflict between Ukraine and Russia-backed separatists, and praised China’s role in talks on a framework agreement over Iran’s nuclear program. BEIJING (AP) — The European Union’s foreign policy chief said Tuesday she’s confident the EU and China can agree to a common approach on climate change ahead of crucial carbon reduction talks in Paris this year.Federica Mogherini praised China’s targets for gradually reducing its greenhouse gas emissions and said the sides should be able to agree on other goals at an upcoming bilateral summit.

Ugly potential fallout from Supreme Court health care case

first_imgIf the subsidies survive, the Affordable Care Act will look like settled law to all but its most passionate opponents. But if they are overturned, the shock could carry into next year’s elections. Some potential consequences:___BAD TIMINGAround the time when the court announces its decision, insurers will be working to finalize premiums and plans for the coming year. Contracts with the government for 2016 health law coverage have to be signed by early fall. If the subsidies are overturned, insurers would have to tear up their projections about markets in more than half the states.Populous states such as Texas, Florida, Ohio, Illinois, New Jersey, Georgia and Pennsylvania would be among those affected.State lawmakers could mitigate the impact by setting up their own insurance markets, or exchanges. But that can’t be done overnight.States might try authorizing an exchange, and then contracting with the federal government to run it. But that sort of end run might prompt lawsuits from opponents of the law.In any case, most state legislatures will be out of session by the summer.During arguments, Justice Samuel Alito raised the possibility that the court might be able to delay the effective date of its decision. Even a delay through the end of this year wouldn’t buy much time. Enrollment for 2016 health law plans is scheduled to start Nov. 1. Obama’s law offers subsidized private insurance to people without access to it on the job. In the court case, opponents of the law argue that its literal wording allows the federal government to subsidize coverage only in states that set up their own health insurance markets.Most states have not done so, because of the intense partisanship over “Obamacare” and in some cases because of technical problems. Instead, they rely on the federal HealthCare.gov website.If the court invalidates the subsidies in those states, an estimated 8 million people could lose coverage. The results would be “ugly,” said Sandy Praeger, a former Kansas insurance commissioner.“People who are reasonably healthy would just drop coverage,” she said. “Only the unhealthy would keep buying health care. It would really exacerbate the problem of the cost of health insurance.”Praeger, a Republican who retired this year, called it “a classic death spiral,” using a term for market collapse.Oral arguments on March 4 revealed a divided court. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Anthony Kennedy seemingly are key to the outcome, which won’t be known until late June. Comments   Share   WASHINGTON (AP) — A Supreme Court ruling due in a few weeks could wipe out health insurance for millions of people covered by President Barack Obama’s health care law. But it’s Republicans — not White House officials — who have been talking about damage control.A likely reason: Twenty-six of the 34 states that would be most affected by the ruling have Republican governors, and 22 of the 24 GOP Senate seats up in 2016 are in those states. Sponsored Stories Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean The health law created one big insurance pool in each state, combining customers who purchase their policies directly with those who buy through the government market. If healthy people exit the insurance exchanges in droves, premiums for those buying directly would go up. Some may be unable to afford the higher cost.“It would set off cascading events,” said Larry Levitt of the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. “The individual market would empty out as premiums rise significantly.”___REPUBLICANS TO THE RESCUE?Leading congressional Republicans have been walking a fine line, opposing the law in the Supreme Court case while pledging to protect consumers if their side wins.If the subsidies are overturned, Republicans will first try blaming Obama and the Democrats for writing flawed legislation and then trying to paper over problems with regulations. Then they’ll move ahead with a patch to appease angry constituents.A bill introduced by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., would continue the subsidies for existing customers only on the federal exchange until Sept. 2017. That would open a window for states to act, but it would ultimately leave the problem for the next president and Congress. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is a co-sponsor. Johnson’s bill would repeal the requirements for individuals to have insurance and for larger employers to offer coverage to workers.Obama is unlikely to accept any of those changes.“The president is likely to veto whatever we would propose, because we don’t have a willing partner,” said Sen.

Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Top Stories ___HOUSE OF CARDSThe health law was designed as a balancing act. Insurers can’t turn people away because of health problems, but most healthy people are required to contribute to the insurance pool, and the government subsidizes most of the premium for low- to middle-income households.Take away subsidies, and the other two parts become unstable.The law’s requirement to carry insurance, never popular, would probably become the biggest target for repeal.“My guess is there would be overwhelming political support for the elimination of the individual mandate if people can’t afford the premiums,” said former Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D., who was an influential Obama adviser on health care.Insurers would demand relief from provisions of the law intended to limit premium increases, or they might drop out of the insurance exchanges.___STICKER SHOCK FOR SELF-PAY CUSTOMERSMany people still buy individual health care policies directly from an insurance company, bypassing the law’s markets and paying the full cost. They tend to be small-business owners, self-employed professionals and early retirees.But even they would not escape the tumult in states losing subsidies.

First round draft pick D.J Humphries had been practicing at right tackle and would be potential competition for Massie.Humphries had been out of practice for the past week with a knee injury but is expected back Tuesday. Third-year pro Earl Watford and Bradley Sowell are also in the mix, and it was Watford who was playing right tackle with the second-team offense in Monday’s practice.Whoever ends up filling in, offensive lineman Ted Larsen feels like the Cardinals will be fine.“We’ve got good depth and guys that have been playing well and that can step and keep trying to play to the level Bobby plays at,” he said.Still, it’s the type of thing a team like the Cardinals, who have goals of winning the Super Bowl, do not really want to have to deal with.“It’s one of those things you hate to hear, you hope that the appeal process goes in our favor,” Calais Campbell said. “But it’s one of those things you have to deal with. It’s one of those things that when something happens you look him in the eye, he has to be accountable to his team.

(AP Photo/Eric Gay, File) ESPN hires former UCLA coach Mora as college studio analyst by Ralph D.

He was fired after 11 games last season. He worked for the NFL Network during the lead-up this year’s draft. For ESPN, he will be part of ESPN2’s Saturday studio show, hosted by Chris Cotter. Former Texas star Emmanuel Acho will join Mora as an analyst on the show. Acho, who has been with the Longhorn Network, has signed a new multiyear contract to appear on ESPN’s college football programming.Acho takes the place of Jonathan Vilma, the former Miami and NFL linebacker, who is moving to the ABC studio show for Saturday Night Football.Kelly spent last season with ESPN, taking a year off from coaching after being fired by the San Francisco 49ers at the end of the 2016 season. The former Oregon coach was hired by UCLA less than a week after Mora was fired.Mora has coached in the NFL with Atlanta and Seattle. He went 46-30 at UCLA. He also spent two seasons working as NFL game analyst for Fox and doing a studio show with the NFL Network in between coaching the Seahawks and UCLA.“I want to do a tremendous job for ESPN. But I also (said) at some point if there was an opportunity that presented itself with a university where my thoughts and goals and priorities aligned with theirs, I’d be overjoyed to coach again,” Mora said. “I feel like I have a lot of give to the game and to the young men that play it still.”Mora will still live in Los Angeles, where two of his children attend the University of Southern California and another is in high school. He will be commuting to Bristol, Connecticut.“Fortunately, there’s a couple of great nonstop flight from LA to Hartford, which I just found out,” Mora said. “And I can get a lot of work done on an airplane as well. A lot of preparation for the shows.”___More AP college football: http://collegefootball.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_Top25last_img read more

Bus companies say they could close over subsidy row

first_imgA move by the transport ministry to claim back money from bus companies may well lead to the closure of services, company representatives warned on Wednesday.The transport ministry announced on Wednesday it will start to claim back money it overpaid in the past to all six public bus companies from next month, cutting the monthly subsidies which the companies in turn use to pay their employees.The decision was made by a committee which was set up last year to resolve the ongoing dispute between the government and the companies.The five transport companies which took part in the process have rejected the decision. The Paphos company removed itself from the process earlier on and is not bound by the decision.Transport Minister Vassiliki Anastasiadou insisted the cuts will be made until all the money is recovered.Announcing the move after Wednesday’s cabinet session, she said there was “no other way”.“Such decisions are made with respect to the taxpayer’s money and in view of the need to provide a seamless public transport service by the state,” Anastasiadou said.However, she added the government was open to discussions on how exactly the money should be returned.“Of course, we are open and we urge and ask them [the companies] to come up with counter-proposals and alternatives, so if they do not want to be cut off by the amount we propose, there are other ways to pay off the due amount,” she said. “We don’t want to strangle the companies.”Responding to a question, Anastasiadou said the existing contracts between the companies and the government will expire in July 2020. The money should be returned by the time the contracts end.The minister said she hoped that “companies will behave in a consensual manner and come to discuss solutions because there are solutions”.However, the bus companies have warned that cutting a substantial amount from the monthly payments could lead to closure.Head of Limassol bus company, Emel, Giorgos Kyriakou told daily Phileleftheros “we cannot operate on the basis of the decision of the ministry, its calculations and its estimations. We also believe these calculations are wrong.”Bus drivers in all regions have gone on strike in recent years over late payment of salaries, as a result of the financial disagreements between the management of the bus companies and the government.   You May LikeYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.

talent and tenacity in the long run When push comes to shove it looks like it’s going to take more than a "nudge" for people to change their bad habits So says the United Kingdom’s House of Lords Science and Technology Sub-Committee Today it issued a report on behavioral change policy that finds "nudges" and similar behavior interventions are ineffective in influencing behavioral changes when used in isolation Everyone has been nudged before—usually without them even knowing it Take the chocolates conveniently placed in the checkout line for example A nudge is any action that seeks to change people’s behavior by altering the environment or context of their decisions A more healthy nudge might be to make fruit the default side order—rather than French fries—or to make stairs more prominent and install fewer elevators Lawmakers have taken an interest in nudges because of their nonregulatory nature and supposed cost-effectiveness The UK government is keen to address societal issues such as obesity and carbon emissions by finding ways to change behavior without using regulation But the Science and Technology Sub-Committee’s report finds that a mixture of interventions is required including regulation and taxation "We hope we will persuade the UK government that these interventions are valuable as part of an armory to persuade people to change behavior" says committee chair Julia Neuberger That view was echoed by Theresa Marteau director of the Behaviour and Health Research Unit at the University of Cambridge Institute of Public Health who submitted evidence for the report "The concern we raised and was raised much more forcibly by the House of Lords report is that government and policymakers were in danger of ignoring some of the very potent means or levers for changing behavior if they focused only on nudging" she says The report also finds that much of government policy in this area is not based on evidence This may be the peers conclude because there is little existing evidence about behavior interventions to draw on and little is being funded In the United Kingdom only 25% of all health research funding is for prevention And only 05% of that is spent on behavior interventions according to Marteau She adds that in the United States the figure is around 4% spent on prevention The Food and Drug Administration’s new labels on cigarette packaging that feature a cadaver or other graphic images are the United States’s own attempt to implement nonregulatory interventions What little research exists on behavior interventions suggests that though nudging may work the effect is slight and more often negative "The general impression is that nudging without using regulation is going to have at best only a small effect in the context of the very large changes that are required" Marteau says In a review of existing literature Marteau did find descriptions of nudging being used to improve health behaviors—one study reports a 70% increase in the amount of fruit bought by school children at lunchtime after fruit was placed by the cash register —but these interventions have not been evaluated on a large scale or assessed for cost-effectiveness "We found a number of interesting ideas but very few had been evaluated in general populations and very few I don’t think any had looked at the long term and the sustainability of change" she says Nudge studies in the United States have also had mixed results In 2008 the Sacramento Municipal Utility District tried to reduce household energy consumption by issuing bills that compared customer’s energy use to their neighbors But people weren’t shamed into cutting back: usage fell by only 2% The report recommends that the government finds a way to make the available evidence more accessible to policymakers and appoints a chief social scientist to communicate research-based advice to policymakers But nudging has potential "One has to be very careful not to throw babies out with bath waters" Merteau says "I think what is needed is more research to find out the characteristics of nudges that are effective and the context in which they will be most effective with and without regulation"
