first_imgWASHINGTON – Justin Trudeau will visit the North American capitals next week amid early signs of turbulence in continental trade negotiations that have stoked some concern from NAFTA supporters about the agreement’s long-term prospects.The prime minister will meet U.S. President Donald Trump during a two-day visit to Washington, followed by a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto during a two-day visit to Mexico City.The trip was not specifically designed around NAFTA, say Canadian officials, noting that it was in the works for some time and began with an invitation to a women-in-business summit in Washington, coupled with Trudeau’s long-standing plan to visit Mexico.But trade will come up, they said.Some officials have been unnerved by early sticking points that have emerged even before the negotiations touch the hardest issues: dairy, auto parts, the dispute-resolution system and the U.S. idea of forcing a mandatory review of NAFTA every five years.A rare major file that has already opened involves so-called Buy American rules. And America’s neighbours were dismayed by the U.S. proposal during the last round in Ottawa: that access to U.S. public works be restricted to a one-for-one ratio — a dollar’s worth of U.S. contracts for every dollar of contacts across the border.“Which is ridiculous,” said an official in one of the other NAFTA countries.“Whether they’re just driving a hard bargain (or serious about this idea, we) don’t know.”Canada’s position is that it’s unrealistic to expect perfect reciprocity given massive differences in market size. It has pushed back against some of the numbers cited by fans of Buy American rules, who argue the U.S. offers nearly 100 times more access to government procurement ($198 billion) than it gets from Canada ($2.25 billion at the federal level).The Canadian embassy recently sent Washington lawmakers a letter citing a counter-statistic: that just three per cent of U.S. federal contracts are won by foreign suppliers, while 11 per cent of Canadian federal contracts go to foreign firms.One Washington trade consultant says that’s not the main sign of trouble.Eric Miller says what he finds worrying is that even on comparably simple issues like textiles and fruits and vegetables, the default U.S. position so far tends toward restrictions on trade.He said that’s causing anxiety in boardrooms, given the Trump administration’s stated intention: to get a new deal, or terminate NAFTA. He said he’s aware of more than one Fortune 500 company that has briefed its board on the need to plan for the possibility of a world without NAFTA.”Things are going pretty badly,” said Miller, head of the Rideau Potomac Strategy Group, which has advised different clients on trade issues, including Industry Canada.”There are a number of proposals which have been put on the table by the U.S. that are considered by many in the trade community to be radical — or certainly a radical reorientation based on both what’s in the current agreement and what’s become established practice on international trade.”His advice to Trudeau next week: Learn Trump’s intentions.“Look into the into the eyes of the president and figure out if the U.S. is serious about getting a renegotiated NAFTA,” Miller said.“(Try) to understand to what extent these are hard and fast U.S. proposals, or are they posturing.”It’s also important to speak with Mexico, he said, about how to respond should Trump trigger the NAFTA pullout clause.Should that crisis scenario emerge, Canada and Mexico would have allies in Washington: scores of U.S. lawmakers are strenuously opposed to torpedoing the deal and could argue that the president lacks the constitutional authority to do it alone.Some NAFTA-supporting lawmakers spoke at Canada’s Washington embassy on Tuesday, as it hosted a gathering of Latino legislators, some Democrat, some Republican and all expressing a desire for a quick and mutually beneficial deal.In their speeches, Marco Rubio, Mario Diaz-Balart, Henry Cuellar, and Will Hurd touted the benefits of trade not only on the economy, but on regional stability. Some voiced a sense of urgency in getting a deal before Mexico and the U.S. enter national elections next year.Cuellar, a Texas Democrat, said that if talks run into election season, some lawmakers will be afraid to vote on the deal. Hurd, a Texas Republican, laid out three guiding principles for NAFTA: “Do no harm. Make it better. Do it quickly”Rubio expressed confidence it will get done.“I’m not worried,” the senator told The Canadian Press.“It’s difficult, it’s hard, it’s going to be hard because these are issues of great importance in all three countries. But I’m generally optimistic that not only will they make progress on it, but that it will be done expeditiously.”last_img read more

HOUSTON — Former Enron Corp. CEO Jeffrey Skilling has been released from federal custody.Skilling was discharged Thursday after serving 12 years in prison and six months in a halfway house after being convicted for his actions that led to one of the worst corporate meltdowns in history.The 65-year-old was initially sentenced in 2006 to 24 years in prison and fined $45 million for multiple counts of securities fraud, conspiracy and other crimes. In 2013, the sentence was reduced to 14 years.Houston-based Enron collapsed into bankruptcy in 2001 after years of illicit business deals and accounting tricks that put more than 5,000 people out of work, eliminated over $2 billion in employee pensions and rendered worthless $60 billion in Enron stock.The Associated Press read more

While the Government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has achieved some progress in the protection of human rights, serious abuses still persist in the war-torn country, according to a new report by the United Nations Special Rapporteur probing conditions in the DRC. Positive developments cited in the report by Iulia Motoc include the suspension of the death penalty, the freeing of 300 child soldiers and the lifting of restrictions on political activities. At the same time, she notes that the DRC’s Military Court, which continues to try civilians, is incompatible with human rights. The judicial system’s weakness, she adds, is “affecting the entrenchment of all human rights.” Massive human rights violations are frequent in territories controlled by rebels, especially in the eastern part of the country, according to the report, which blames extrajudicial executions carried out by the Rassemblement congolais pour la démocratie/Goma (RCD-Goma) for the continued climate of terror in that part of the country. The Special Rapporteur documents instances of sexual violence against women and children, reprisals against the civilian population and incitement to ethnic hatred, urging an end to these violations. The expert also calls on all parties to pursue the Inter-Congolese Dialogue, apply the provisions of all existing agreements, and fully cooperate with Mustapha Niasse, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy, who has been holding informal consultations on a transitional political arrangements for the country. Parties to the DRC conflict are also called on to give their full support to international organizations on the ground, particularly the UN Mission in the DRC (MONUC) as it embarks on the demobilization, disarmament, repatriation, resettlement and reintegration process. read more

“I have always said the military is not a place for a child to grow up. We are very happy for the children and young people being discharged today,” said the UN Resident Coordinator for Myanmar, Ashok Nigam. “We congratulate them and wish them and their families well as they reunite.”Today’s release follows the discharge of 42 children in September 2012, 24 children in February, and a further 42 children and young people in July. Mr. Nigam said this was “a positive step towards the commitment by the Myanmar Government under the Action Plan to prevent and end the recruitment or use of children by the Tatmadaw.”UNICEF Myanmar’s Deputy Representative in Yangon, Shalini Bahuguna, noted that the latest release is the largest since the Myanmar signed the Action Plan with the UN Country Taskforce in June last year. The Plan seeks to ensure the monitoring and reporting of grave child rights violations in accordance to Security Council Resolution 1612.Adopted in 2005, the resolution requested Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to establish a monitoring and reporting mechanism to provide timely and reliable information on six grave children’s rights violations, which include the recruitment and use of children by armed forces and armed groups.“The time has come for the mass release of all children from the Myanmar armed forces,” Ms. Bahuguna said. “We welcome today’s release and further encourage the Myanmar Government and the Tatmadaw to continue accelerating identification and registration so that all children are discharged as a matter of urgency.”Ms. Bahuguna also urged the Government to ratify the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on involvement of children in armed conflicts to bolster its positive actions. read more

Junior forward Claudia Kepler (24) looks to pass the puck during a game against Minnesota State on Oct. 23 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won 5-3.Credit: Courtesy of OSUThe Ohio State women’s hockey team (9-20-1, 5-18-1) was swept in a home series by the No. 2 Wisconsin Badgers (28-1-1, 22-1-1) over the weekend despite putting up a battle in both games against one of the nation’s elite teams.Heading into the series, the Buckeyes were on their best four-game stretch of the season after recording two wins, a tie and a loss over their last two series.This was the second series between the Badgers and Buckeyes this season. The two teams played in the first conference series of the season in Madison, Wisconsin, in early October. Wisconsin outscored OSU 15-0 over those two games.This time around, the Buckeyes showcased their improved play despite losing both contests by scores of 2-1 on Friday and 2-0 on Saturday.In Game 1, the Buckeyes held with the conference leaders throughout the first period but allowed a late power-play goal with less than two minutes remaining in the period. The goal for the Badgers was scored by junior defenseman Jenny Ryan.Both teams continued to battle in the second and third periods, and the Badgers broke through with a goal from sophomore Annie Pankowski to double their lead.The Buckeyes were able to find the net against the country’s best defense when junior Claudia Kepler scored her 12th goal of the season about halfway through the period. However, that was all the scoring the home team could manage despite a late power-play opportunity, and the game ended with Wisconsin taking the 2-1 win.On Saturday, in an emotionally charged contest, neither the Badgers nor Buckeyes were able to break through offensively in the first period. The Buckeyes got out to a slow offensive start with only two shots in the period, but sophomore goalie Alex LaMere was able to block all 12 of the Wisconsin shots to keep the game goalless.Four minutes into the second period, however, sophomore forward Baylee Wellhausen broke through to give the Badgers a one-goal lead. Then, a little over a minute into the third period, the Badgers got their second goal of the game when freshman Sam Cogan beat LaMere, sealing the 2-0 win.OSU will look to rediscover its ability to put points on the scoreboard when it travels to Bemidji State University next weekend to take on the Beavers in its final away series of the regular season. The games are scheduled to begin on Friday at 8:07 p.m. and Saturday at 5:07 p.m.A request for comments from the team after the second game of the weekend was denied. read more

first_imgHe’s a people manager. He’ll speak to his players. He’ll speak to everybody. He’s very approachable. If anyone does have any questions about stuff he’s asked to do, you can go and ask the question. He’ll explain exactly what he wants and doesn’t make you feel like you should know.”The opening of a new Astroturf pitch at Athlone Town Stadium has added to the feel-good factor, while the opening wins have created a sense of momentum that was patently absent last year. Home crowds have also risen, as Brilly notes: “Come the Friday night, people think: ‘We’ll come and have a look at them, they’ve obviously improved from last year, getting a win against a strong Dundalk team.”He continues: “The [problem] last year was getting that first elusive win. This year, as much as our focus was towards being as successful as we can, we know what we’re capable of doing. It was always nice to get that hoodoo away. Getting the first win of the season on that first night against Wexford creates relief.“There’s nobody talking about how ‘Athlone haven’t won a game’ anymore. Those people who wrote us off last year, it’s kind of turned full circle now. We’ve won four out of six competitive games this year.“We had a young squad, a lot of lads coming up from 19s football. It was their first taste of senior football. I’m not saying you should forget about losses or poor performances, they’re the things we have to build on.” Former Dundalk player Darren Meenan was among the club’s key pre-season recruits. Source: Donall Farmer/INPHOPositives have been taken even from the two losses this season, and if the club can sustain their current level of form and challenge for promotion, it would surely constitute one of the most dramatic turnarounds in the history of the League of Ireland.Enjoying this sudden success is a proud moment in particular for Brilly, who despite only being 23, is one of the squad’s most important and experienced players.Growing up in Kildare, he played with local side Kilcock Celtic all the way up to U17 level, before linking up with the Shamrock Rovers youth set-up.Coming from a family of GAA fanatics, he eventually chose to play soccer despite the temptation of joining several of his friends in taking the alternative route.And after just a season with the Hoops, Brilly signed for Longford following a successful trial there, making his first-team debut away to Finn Harps in what was a particularly special 17th birthday present.“When I went to Longford, there were four lads from the same town as me that ended up signing in the same year, so I had that little bit of a connection,” he adds.However, first-team appearances at the City Calling Stadium were sporadic. Having left Longford in 2014, a short spell at Newry City followed, before two seasons with Cabinteely, whose signing of Brilly coincided with their debut League of Ireland campaign.“In the off-season, probably to my detriment because I wasn’t giving myself a break, I’d go and play Leinster Senior League football,” he says of his early footballing days. “That was when I was a little bit younger and I just wanted to play. Now, you’re just happy for your rest that you deserve, after a 35-week sprint between your pre-season and your season.” It was at Cabinteely where Brilly first properly got accustomed to First Division football, with manager Eddie Gormley playing him regularly and enabling the youngster to amass “60 or 70″ league appearances.Since joining Athlone in 2017, Brilly and the club have endured some extremely difficult days. In fact, he initially left only a couple of months after signing, with reports at the time citing his “unhappiness with the management at the club”.However, with a new coaching team in charge, Brilly returned ahead of the 2018 season and ultimately established himself as an important player.Some of the stuff, it was difficult to deal with at the time,” he recalls. “A lot of the attitudes and characters in the dressing room now particularly and especially with the management team as well, they drilled into us that no matter what’s happening off the field, anything else, it’s the 18-24 people that are sitting in that dressing room on a Monday and Wednesday in training, or on Friday night for a match, it’s us against everybody else in a way. If it’s in there, it’s just full systems go to getting a result and leaving any difficulties [aside].“I left for a while and played for Home Farm in the Leinster Senior League while I got a new job and was transitioning with the new job. It was heavy, getting used to that stuff. “But once I saw the set-up the lads had and what they really wanted to do, I was more than happy to [re-sign for Athlone in 2018].“There’s a massive confidence in terms of the club and the players [now], we’re well looked after by everybody when it comes to the gear and training facilities, our food pre and post match. When we get down there on the Friday night, for our travel, everything is covered by the club. It’s nice for the players to kind of know it’s something that’s there for us.” Athlone have performed above expectations so far this year, after a number of off-the-field issues hindered their progress in recent seasons. Source: James Crombie/INPHONevertheless, despite all this assistance from the club, life for Brilly and co is still not by any means comparable to the glamour of being an elite European footballer.Like many of the team, he is based in Dublin. The squad split training sessions between there and Athlone. It usually takes Brilly well over an hour to travel up to the latter.And in addition to his footballing commitments, the youngster is currently in his third year studying Research Management in the Dublin Institute of Technology, combining the course with a job as head office manager for an independent bookmaker.“The nature of League of Ireland football, everybody else has something else that they do. Me personally, I play football, I work full-time and I study part-time,” he explains.“My schedule is fairly heavy and I know a lot of lads are either working full-time and playing football as well, or they’re in college during the week and maybe having a part-time job come the weekend to make a few quid for themselves.There’s no doubt it’s difficult for everybody, transitioning from work to football to college or whatever. But we’re all there because we bought into it — we knew exactly what it entailed and we’re all willing to do it, because we want to play football at the highest standard we can.”Brilly also believes his story should serve as inspiration for all aspiring young footballers, who hope to play in the League of Ireland or elsewhere some day.“If you look at me, I didn’t leave local football until I was 16, but once I realised that this was what I wanted to do, I understood and accepted the challenge and the difficulty that comes with it.“There are a lot of people that want to play football at a higher standard. I suppose there’s no substitute for getting the head down and working hard. It’s known, and I’m not afraid to say it, that I’m not this technically gifted midfielder or anything like that, but it’s my willingness to work hard that’s got me where I am.”Premier Division fixturesFirst Division fixtures:- Originally published at 07.00Subscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: By Paul Fennessy Friday 29 Mar 2019, 3:00 PM Share12 Tweet Email Subscribe Mar 29th 2019, 7:01 AM Short URL The team who ended 18 months without a win by beating the best side in Ireland Athlone captain Aaron Brilly discusses the club’s remarkable rejuvenation since the start of the new campaign. An image of Athlone Town’s stadium No Comments BY THE END of last season, optimism at Athlone was in short supply.The Town finished bottom of the First Division with a meagre seven points from 27 games. They hadn’t been victorious all season, or they had won one match, depending on your interpretation of the word. Their only ‘victory’ was a 1-0 loss to Wexford — the result had been overturned and awarded as a 3-0 success for Athlone, after their opponents were found to have fielded an ineligible player.On the pitch, the campaign couldn’t have gone much worse. Off the pitch, it wasn’t much better. The club had several managers over the space of a few months, including Roddy Collins, Aaron Callaghan and current boss Terry Butler.It has been a turbulent few years for the embattled side, with off-field problems heavily contributing to their dire performances. There were the allegations of match-fixing, a High Court battle surrounding the ownership of their stadium, unhappy players leaving in protest, short-lived Portuguese revolutions and fan groups calling for the board to resign among other issues.When Callaghan stepped down as manager in May last year, he accused the club of a lack of professionalism.“The last straw was on Monday night when there was no warm-up gear and no physio,” he commented.With all the controversy off the field and the relentless defeats on it, a number of players considered leaving amid this deeply turbulent periodAnd so the stakes may have been relatively low when they met Dundalk last month. It was just a Leinster Senior Cup game after all. But they were travelling to Oriel Park to play the reigning league champions. Their opponents’ starting XI featured accomplished players such as Aaron McCarey, Daniel Cleary, Stephen Folan and Georgie Kelly.Improbably, Athlone earned a 1-0 victory thanks to Dean Williams’ 66th-minute goal.Some people might dismiss the result. They would say it was little more than a pre-season game that Dundalk didn’t take especially seriously. They would point to the fact that the Lilywhites’ team contained four players from their U19s squad and the knowledge that they will have far greater priorities in the coming months.But in spite of all the caveats, the win served as the launchpad Athlone’s season badly needed. It meant a lot to their players. In the lead up to the game, morale in the camp had been desperately low. Discounting the defeat by technicality of Wexford, their last competitive win had been a 5-0 victory away to Ballincollig in the first round of the FAI Cup on 12 August 2017 — so that’s 555 days, or 79 weeks, or one year, six months and six days without the experience of coming off the pitch victorious.And just as remarkably, the club have proven this surprise win was no fluke. After five league games, they have already picked up more points than they did in 27 matches last year. In addition, three more victories will see them surpass their overall 2017 tally.They began the First Division season with a 4-2 home win over Wexford, their first league victory since 5 May 2017, when they beat Cobh Ramblers 2-1.They have followed that result with two more wins (against Cobh and Bray) and two losses (versus Shelbourne and Longford). As a result, the team perennially stuck to the bottom of the table last year are now joint top after five games, level on nine points with Shels and Bray, with only goal difference leaving them third. Terry Butler has helped rejuvenate Athlone since taking over as manager. Source: James Crombie/INPHOSo how does the worst team in the League of Ireland suddenly undergo such a positive transformation?Team captain Aaron Brilly cites the recruitment of experienced players such as Darren Meenan and Kealan Dillon as key to their improvement, while also pointing to an early start to pre-season as vital.“They had us in December time, so they had us in long enough for pre-season, whereas last year, we didn’t have much of a pre-season — at the fault of nobody, it was just the way things worked out,” Brilly tells The42.“Towards the start of [last] season, we were still getting to know each other. We were five or six weeks behind other teams. They were already in late December, early January. It was end of January, start of February before we got the squad finalised with Aaron, Terry and Mitch [Whitty]. We were always catching up with ourselves.“I was one of the most experienced heads in the dressing room and I was only 22 at the time. I think with any team, bringing in that little bit of experience will always help.”Brilly also cites the influence of Butler, the assistant boss until Callaghan left, as vital to the team’s rejuvenation.“If you switch off or training’s been bad, he’ll come in and let you know exactly what he thinks. He’ll be sure to remind you of exactly what’s expected,” Brilly explains. 33,435 Views An image of Athlone Town’s stadium Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

first_imgHôpitaux : un chien renifleur… de maladies nosocomiales Décrivant leur expérience dans le British Medical Journal, des médecins hollandais ont eu l’idée de faire dresser un chien à détecter olfactivement, dans les selles des patients, la présence d’une redoutable bactérie infectieuse : une technique peut-être prometteuse.Le Dr Marije Bomers, spécialiste des maladies infectieuses au Centre médical de l’Université libre d’Amsterdam, s’est souvenue des paroles d’une infirmière racontant comment un patient avait pu détecter, dans ses propres selles, l’odeur d’une certaine bactérie. C’est là qu’elle a eu le déclic : les chiens, dont l’odorat est réputé 100 fois supérieur à celui de l’homme, devraient exceller dans cet exercice !…Partie de là, le Dr Bomers a donc pris contact avec un dresseur et ‘adopté’ le chien Cliff, un beagle mâle âgé de 2 ans. Or, après 2 mois seulement de dressage, l’animal s’est révélé capable de prouesses : lors de tests au cours desquels on lui a présenté 50 échantillons infectés par des bactéries mêlés à 50 échantillons sains, l’animal a détecté sans aucune erreur les premiers, et commis seulement 3 erreurs sur 50 pour les seconds.Sa cible : Clostridium difficile, une bactérie résistante aux antibiotiques – celle-là même repérée à l’odeur par le patient évoqué par l’infirmière. Un germe potentiellement mortel, ayant une fâcheuse tendance à se propager d’un patient à l’autre dans les hôpitaux, et que Cliff, le beagle, a été entraîné à sentir dans les selles humaines, et à signaler en s’asseyant devant.Des bactéries qui se propagent facilementÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Le problème avec Clostridium difficile, c’est qu’il est transmissible.

Icons are large, flat circles that take a while to get used to since many of the designs have changed, from the color of the Gallery icon to the shape of the Galaxy Notes app. I mean it: these icons are huge.

Sarah Tew/CNET Some of the changes with One UI are appreciable early on, like larger “cards” that make it more comfortable to read what’s going on without making you crane your neck or squint.  I also noticed a mode in the notifications setting called Kids Home, which opens a parent-protected profile/walled garden for kids to take photos and download apps. Young kids, that is. (Older ones would roll their eyes and scoff, then find out the password and change all your language settings.)

Of course there could be legitimate reasons for that, like Samsung’s software and hardware working with Qualcomm’s component and making sure the unlock protocols really are secure. (Samsung uses its Knox security software.)Still, my usual tricks haven’t been working so well. You’re allowed to scan a total of four fingers, so I scanned my right thumb twice, my left thumb once and my right index finger. Mostly I unlock the phone with my right thumb. Even after the double scan, I’m still only getting in about 50 percent of the time. The other times, I’m either not hitting the target completely, or not pressing long enough or not pressing hard enough — I’ve seen error messages telling me to apply more pressure.  I’ve had more luck when I go slower. However, since my IT department requires a 1-minute screen timeout on any device where I’ve loaded up my work email, I’m unlocking this phone a lot, and all these second, third and even fourth attempts at unlocking the phone with my thumb are getting pretty old. 27-samsung-galaxy-s10The phone’s in-screen fingerprint reader.

I’ve gone to the same settings menu on my review unit, and it’s just not possible. I wish I had more to tell you, but I’ve asked Samsung for the deets. How about the camera? Testing a camera is a massive undertaking in itself, and Samsung has added a lot of parts. There are the new features we already knew about, like switching among the camera lenses on the front and back, and toggling scene optimizers on and off. And then there are some features and featurettes I’ve discovered.  samsung-galaxy-s10-hoyle-2Testing out the Galaxy S10’s camera.

It’s no longer as creepy as it was in earlier iterations, and you have many more customization options. Still not body type, and some of the color choices for your hair, eyes and skin aren’t rich or varied enough. For example, still no hazel eyes or hair my shade of brown. (How hard is brown?) I still identify more with Apple’s Memoji, but I promise I’ll give this one some time to grow on me.In the meantime, you can see a few photos I took so far: The ultrasonic fingerprint reader doesn’t seem to work well when your fingers are excessively wet. I dunked the phone and my hand in the pool and tried unlocking. I failed 20 successive times before giving up. Other types of phone unlocking tech are also hydrophobic, but I wanted to test the limits. Lightly moist fingers (e.g., if it’s hot out or you just dried your hands) seem to work fine.Friday’s revelations: Portrait mode pics and AR EmojiThe ultrasonic fingerprint reader is meant to work through grease, but that seems to apply more to natural films of gunk and goo. When I squeezed an oily (and delicious) churro between my fingers and then tried to unlock the phone, I mismatched 20 times straight. Turns out, there is a limit.Portrait mode: I had a ton of fun playing with the new portrait mode effects (called Live Focus here), including being able to completely edit them all after the fact. For example, if you take a photo with spot color and change your mind, you can swap to any other effect and effect level you want.AR Emoji has a lot more new use cases than stickers. For example, you can toss a “mask” of your face on someone else’s body (and take photos of it), and take a photo of a friend with a “mini me” AR Emoji of yourself, say sitting on your buddy’s shoulder.

I’ve also charged my dying Galaxy S9 Plus from last year via the charging pad on the back of the Galaxy S10 Plus while switching my credentials over to the new device (it works!).A solid phone review takes about a week to really test out the hardware and software specs, especially the camera and battery life. For example, the Galaxy S10 Plus’ 4,100mAh battery ran for over 21 hours on its first looping video drain test in airplane mode, so that already requires days of testing. Quirks also tend to make their way to the surface over time.  Tags Not-quite gesture navigation: Navigation is now a quick setting. Turn it off and your familiar nav buttons become dashes that you can toggle up to use. I’ve just started using this, so I’m not sure how I feel about it, but everyone’s different, so it’s always nice to have alternatives.GIF-maker: Here’s a neat trick. Turn on a camera setting and you can press and hold the shutter button to make a quick GIF. The Galaxy Note lets you make a GIF through a multistep process that involves the S Pen. This is so much simpler, and it works. Quality is suspect — it’s a little juddery — but it’s fast and easy, and hopefully Samsung can improve the GIF smoothness and image clarity soon. New Galaxy S10 phones pile on sweet specs 64 Photos Still, I know you’re as anxious as I am to see how well the Galaxy S10 Plus performs, with all its exciting new features: the in-screen fingerprint reader, the three rear cameras and two selfie lenses, the Snapdragon 855 chipset and the new hole punch in the screen. Hence, this ongoing review is where I can share some of my impressions and experiences before we’re ready to apply a final rating. Hopefully I can answer some of your early questions. Keep checking back daily for frequent updates. Lovely to look at, but a slippery devil Samsung is partial to glossy finishes that reflect light in unusual ways. My review unit is the 128GB version in Prism White, and it definitely reflects iridescent shades of pale blue and pink in the light. This color is nice and subtle, unlike the bolder flamingo pink, canary yellow and prism blue. 6:04 Samsung Event Mobile World Congress 2019 Galaxy S10 5G camera, 5G demo at MWC 2019 This is new to #GalaxyS10 @CNET— Jessica Dolcourt (@jdolcourt) February 21, 2019 Wednesday and Thursday: It’s all coming togetherAfter a week with the Galaxy S10 Plus, it’s time to turn my attention to the final review. One thing I will say is that I’m really liking the S10 Plus overall, though it’s not perfect (but really, no phone ever is.) Hang tight for my final assessment, a star rating, new photos and video!Monday and Tuesday: Bixby Routines, Gesture navigation, GIF-makerBixby Routines: Today I played around with Bixby Routines. I’m not a huge Bixby fan and I only call it up by accident, but Bixby Routines could change my mind. I was impressed with the IFTTT-like flexibility to set up routines, and the presets seemed easy enough for novices to get their feet wet. For example, I set up a morning routine that starts at 6 a.m. and turns on the Always-On display (yes, you can turn it off), surfaces specific lock screen shortcuts and turns off the blue-light filter I’ll turn on for a bedtime routine. Now playing: Watch this: Wireless PowerShare really works I accidentally needed to use the new wireless power-sharing feature when I noticed that my Galaxy S9 Plus was down to 7 percent and going to die while I was still setting up the Galaxy S10 Plus. I was at dinner, with my cables in my hotel room, and hey, this is exactly what the feature’s meant for. So I turned it on and flipped it over and watched my battery climb back up to a barely healthy 13 percent.  Since the phones were back to back, with the Galaxy S9 Plus facing up, I could still tap and type away, as long as I was careful not to shift its position on the Galaxy S10 Plus’ back. I’m happy with this one so far. 43-samsung-galaxy-s10-plusPowerShare in action. Sarah Tew/CNET Jury’s still out on the ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint scanner  If you haven’t read my Saturday thoughts up top, do. Getting biometrics right is so hard. They’re often hard to authenticate the first time, not accurate enough, in the wrong place, or just not secure. The Galaxy S10 Plus’ ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint sensor has been hit or miss for me so far. It uses Qualcomm’s 3D Sonic Sensor, which is supposed to be extremely fast. I even made an in-depth video about how it works. Why yes, that *is* @rogerwcheng wearing my face like V for Vendetta, and that *is* a Mimi Me on @richlpete’s shoulder #AREmoji #GalaxyS10Plus @CNET— Jessica Dolcourt (@jdolcourt) February 22, 2019 Why the Galaxy S10’s ultrasonic fingerprint reader matters 2:48 First, some background. Samsung’s Galaxy S10 Plus is the largest and most advanced of the three mainstream Galaxy S10 phones that will go on sale March 8. If that sounds like a lot of qualifications to place on what’s shaping up to be a real killer device in 2019, you’re onto something. Compared to the more feature-packed Galaxy S10 5G and the foldable Galaxy Fold that Samsung also announced this week, the Galaxy S10 Plus might pale in comparison. Don’t be so hasty. 5G and foldable mark the future, but the Galaxy S10 Plus is a phone for the present.I’m really enjoying using the S10 Plus, with a few caveats. The ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint reader and I are having some tension, but Samsung says a software fix will cure it. I’m just waiting for that to come in so I can retest it. Meanwhile, the tons of camera features and I are still circling each other, trying to decide if we’re frenemies or just fast friends. I was disappointed by some low-light photos I took tonight, compared to another phone with a dedicated night mode. But again, battery life proved itself sensational, which gives me 100 percent confidence that it can last these long conference days and nights. 4:13 Editors’ note, March 2: Thank you for tuning in to read our ongoing review. Better yet, CNET’s fully rated Galaxy S10 Plus review is in! The latest update to this story remains below.I’ve been using the Galaxy S10 Plus to cover the MWC show here in Barcelona, and it’s been a real crash course on this phone as my daily. It has my SIM card in it, which means it’s my No. 1 for literally everything a person does on a phone. I’ve used to to take scads of photos and videos, navigate all around Barcelona and tether to my laptop to deliver roaming network data. Let’s say I’ve learned a thing or two about this phone, and I’m discovering new tidbits of its personality every day. First of all, battery life is outstanding. I go back and forth on the Infinity-O “notch,” which is more noticeable on the Galaxy S10 Plus than it is on the S10 and S10E, which each have one front-facing camera instead of two. Today I cemented my opinion of the GIF-maker, and got to play around with Bixby Routines and gesture navigation. Galaxy S10 vs. iPhone XS: How do they compare? Right away I noticed that the phone is rather slippery. It’s shot out from between my fingers several times, usually landing on my purse, a table or my lap. It also slid off my nightstand, but was luckily tethered by the charging cable, so it was easy to fish back. I like to review phones the way they emerge from the box, but I’m going to want a case for this one. O, that notch?  The Galaxy S10 Plus has an Infinity-O “notch” that’s really a hole cut in the display to make room for two cameras. Its oval shape attracts more attention than the single lens of the Galaxy S10 and S10E, but I’m not really a stickler for notches anyway. More to the point is the feeling of having a large screen with slim bezels. Most of the time, it sort of blends into the background, not calling too much attention to itself. But when the screen is brightly lit, like with a white background, the asymmetry of a pill-shape cut-out becomes more noticeable. One more little thingI’m particular about alarms and the way alarm clocks look, and last year I had a lot of critical things to say about the Galaxy S9 Plus’ alarm clock, especially the way that it ambushes you with loud, robotic-sounding Bixby readouts if you don’t override them. A very rude awakening for me. This time around, the alarm app is more logically laid out. There are new alarm tunes as well, and I had a tough time choosing one. I prefer soothing, organic sounds like guitars or gentle wooden chimes more than anything jangly and tinny. However, nearly every one of the 27 tones is space-themed in just the wrong way to spike my senses.  I ultimately chose “Sunlight” and woke up just fine. I’ll be using the Galaxy S10 Plus all the time I’m here in Barcelona, and updating this story with new impressions as I discover them. Stick with me! Now playing: Watch this: Now playing: Watch this: Phones New Galaxy S10 phones bring it Galaxy Fold is the most exciting phone we’ve seen in years Every camera lens and curve on the new Galaxy S10 phones What’s the difference in all the S10 models? Galaxy Buds with wireless charging arrive March 8 for $130 Comments Today’s #GalaxyS10Plus photos from Barcelona @CNET #MWC2019 #GalaxyS10— Jessica Dolcourt (@jdolcourt) February 22, 2019 Battery life is phenomenal right out of the box. I’ve used the phone all day to navigate around, look up restaurants, shoot photo and video and constantly upload those photos. I even used it as a mobile hotspot for an hour, an activity that’s sure to suck life out of my year-old Galaxy S9 Plus review phone (it’s normal for battery life to shorten over time).Low-light photography doesn’t seem to be getting the kick I really wanted. I wasn’t a big fan of the Galaxy S9 Plus’ low-light performance, as much as I wanted to believe in the dual aperture lenses that auto-adjust to let in low light. The Pixel 3’s Night Sight mode and Huawei Mate 20 Pro’s night mode are separate modes that take longer to shoot, but with stunning results. While the Galaxy S10 Plus’ photos are quite good for what they are, it does feel like the camera can’t keep up — so far. Epic camera shoot-outs to come. 51 The Infinity-O display is cool, but I like the symmetry of the Infinity-U #GalaxyA30 #MWC19 @CNET— Jessica Dolcourt (@jdolcourt) February 25, 2019last_img read more

Nature tourism to protect tigers

first_imgTOFTigers, a leading NGO in the wildlife and nature tourism sector issued a call for the nature tourism industry to extend its vital role in protecting India’s natural heritage and re-wilding denuded landscapes, in the wake of a global study revealing that humans have destroyed.  This was announced during the TOFTigers Awards at the British High Commissioner’s residence recently in the national Capital, to recognize the very best companies, parks and individuals including tour operators, eco lodges, naturalists and wildlife guides using nature tourism as a wildlife restoration, educational and protection tool. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfIndia is one of the world’s most biologically diverse countries. Its forests and ecosystems provide vital natural services from clean air and water to flood prevention and soil fertility. Its high economic returns from recreation and tourism are one of the government’s key growth industries. Yet the power of well-planned sustainable nature tourism remains badly understood and planned for, by Government and industry and is viewed with suspicion by some of the conservation sectors. A WWF and Cambridge University study recently concluded that for every 1 rupee invested in conservation today, 67 rupees is being returned economically – an astounding return on ‘conservation investment’. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive “TOFTigers’ vision is to catalyse a new movement of support for nature conservation, local rural communities and re-wilding through the power of well-run nature tourism – particularly relevant as next year is the United Nations’ Year of Sustainable Tourism,” says Julian Matthews, Founder Chairman of nature tourism action charity, TOFTigers. The event saw active participation of members from the nature travel industry, tourism officials, conservationists and forest management.  It encourages the well planned and wise use of nature tourism to help protect wildlife, particularly tigers, their forest habitats as well as helping re-wild forests and landscapes. It has pioneered a PUG eco-rating kite mark for accommodation providers in and around wilderness areas, that places environmental sustainability, local staff and local communities at the heart of business operations. It promotes good practice through biennial Wildlife Tourism Awards, a free online Good Wildlife Travel Guide to India & Nepal, nature guide training and a campaign aimed at the travel trade and travellers.  It also encourages supports a network of Village Wildlife Guardians to help combat the illegal wildlife trade and prevent poaching in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.last_img read more

Planned drillings to give clear hydrocarbons picture Updated

first_imgFour or five drills are expected over the next 12 months, Energy Minister Yiorgos Lakkotrypis told MPs on the House Finance committee on Monday.Grilled on his ministry’s 2018 budget, Lakkotrypis said by the end of next year there will be a clear picture of Cyprus’ subsea natural resources, thus facilitating decision-making.According to the minister, the government is currently waiting to be informed by Italian energy giant ENI on its planned drilling dates.“They have already asked for a permit to conduct environmental studies and so on in blocks 6, 8 and 3,” he said.“At the same time, we have Exxon-Mobil’s stated intention of conducting two drills in the second half of 2018.”Therefore, the minister added, “I expect four or five drills over the next 12 months, which will be crucial to developments thereafter”.“That is because by the end of 2018 we will know what Cyprus’ resources in hydrocarbons are so that we can make our decisions with regard to the third pillar of our strategy, which is monetising natural gas,” he said.Asked about the Turkish seismic vessel Barbaros, which has variously ventured into Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone (EEZ), Lakkotrypis said its movements are “closely monitored by the Republic of Cyprus, so we have a way of knowing where it moved at which time”.“Of course, we have no way of knowing whether it laid cable or conducted technical research, or whether it was just going around,” he said.Lakkotrypis did not rule out the possibility that Turkey might acquire a drill and press ahead on drilling in the north of Cyprus, but said there would be more to it than that.“During this period the oil and natural gas industry is not at its best, it is under pressure,” he said.“Several companies that own drills or other equipment are trying to sell them. But our intel says that Turkey doesn’t have the know-how to operate a drill. Even if it were to buy one, it would have to seek and commission the services of third parties.”In any case, he added, the government “has plans in place” for any contingency.Lakkotrypis urged “everyone, particularly those participating in the campaign to back up their views and promises”.“There are no easy solutions, nor any headline fixes,” he said.“I heard yesterday that the state, the public, loses €1 billion annually from not importing natural gas in Cyprus,” he added, referring to a claim made by presidential candidate Nicolas Papadopoulos.“I must tell you that all our efforts to import natural gas would have raised the cost to the consumer, not reduced it,” he said.On negotiations for the sale of Cypriot gas between the companies operating Block 12 of Cyprus’ EEZ and the company operating Egypt’s two liquefaction terminals, Lakkotrypis said that in the last two years 18 rounds of talks have been held – “nine for each terminal”.“The talks are made difficult by international oil prices,” he said.“So it would be good for those promising the immediate sale of natural gas to explain how they will do what energy giants with armies of experts can’t get done for the last two years.”He added that more talks will follow in the coming weeks in order to reach what everyone involved can consider a fair market price.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
