first_imgHP vend plus de tablettes que Samsung aux Etats-UnisSur l’année 2011, HP se démarque sur le marché des tablettes en vendant plus que le concurrent le plus sérieux : Samsung. Mais la baisse de prix de la TouchPad à 99 dollars fausse ces résultats.Hormis Apple et son iPad qui écrase littéralement le marché des tablettes avec arrogance, les autres constructeurs se battent pour récupérer les quelques points de part de marché qu’il reste. À lire aussiArirang AS1201, Achim : la Corée du Nord se dote d’un smartphone Android et d’une tablette tactile Le concurrent le mieux placé économiquement est bien sûr Samsung avec ses accords poussés avec les opérateurs et son marketing imposant. Mais surprise, en 2011 c’est HP qui fait mieux sur le secteur avec feu la TouchPad précise PC INpact. Pas de quoi pavoiser tout de même sur ce résultat.Hp récupère donc 17% du marché américain hors iPad contre 16 pour Samsung pour respectivement 204 000 TouchPad contre 192 000 Galaxy Tab. La raison est simple. HP, qui a complètement raté sa stratégie mobile sur WebOS et son lancement, a bradé sa tablette durant l’été. Elle a été disponible un temps limité à 99 dollars, un prix ridicule quand on le compare aux tarifs moyens de la concurrence, aux alentours de 500 dollars. Le succès à donc été au rendez-vous, avec des ruptures de stock qui ont contraint HP a re-fabriquer des tablettes pour honorer ses commandes. Derrière eux, Asus et son Eee Pad Transformer réussit une jolie percée avec 10% du marché, iPad exclu.En France, Samsung est également tenu en échec par Archos qui prend le leadership sur le coréen avec sa gamme d’appareils plus ancrée dans les linéaires. La concurrence s’organise donc, fait tout pour résister ou échoue et abandonne comme HP cette année, mais les ventes ne sont que de quelques centaines de milliers dans le monde, là ou un Apple réalise des chiffres stratosphériques avec des millions d’iPad écoulés chaque année.Le 23 novembre 2011 à 19:30 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgSailing in rough economic seas, the city of Vancouver is for the first time dipping into room-tax reserves to cover the debt on the Hilton Vancouver Washington.Until now, the Hilton has been able to meet its $4 million annual bond payments through its operating revenue, a dedicated lodging tax collected by the city and a sales tax credit from the state.But as room rates continue to plummet in the name of drawing guests, the 225 room hotel and 30,000 square foot convention center downtown is forced to tap into a cash balance kept for just such an emergency, Vancouver Chief Financial Officer Lloyd Tyler said.Just how much will be needed to cover the $2.3 million payment due Jan. 1 won’t be known until after Dec. 1, but Tyler estimated it to be about $400,000. The money will come from a $1.6 million reserve of hotel lodging taxes, he said. The remaining $1.7 million is due in July. The Hilton does not receive any money from the city’s general fund, which pays for operations like fire, police and streets. Rather, it gets about half of a 4 percent lodging tax on room bills for all hotels across the city. State law prohibits lodging tax money from being spent on anything but programs that promote tourism.last_img read more

The Stevenson resident is CEO of 4-Tell, a company he co-founded in 2009, which helps companies boost their e-commerce sales by steering customers to products they might like in addition to what they set out to buy. 4-Tell’s business customers report sales increases of 10 to 25 percent by using the constantly updated software, Levy said.His firm, incorporated in Oregon but operating largely out of Levy’s home office in Stevenson, has 100 business customers so far and is growing at breakneck speed, Levy said.“This year, we’re growing 25 percent month over month,” said Levy, who works with co-founder Neil Lofgren and two sales representatives. “We’re having trouble handling all the demand.” The company’s annual revenue is less than $1 million, but Levy anticipates the company could grow in five years to an annual revenue of $80 million and 150 to 200 employees.The basic concept of 4-Tell’s service is familiar to anyone who has bought a product from Amazon.com or rented a movie from Netflix.

first_imgThe government’s fraud investigating agency, the Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO), has reportedly initiated a probe into alleged financial irregularities worth over Rs 8,000 crore at Kingfisher Airlines.The agency has already sent notices to United Breweries, Kingfisher Airlines and United Spirits, said a CNBC-TV18 report, citing unnamed sources.SFIO is expected to summon Vijay Mallya and executives of United Breweries and United Spirits, the report said.The report said that the agency is carrying out an investigation into alleged mismanagement of funds from 2005 to 2014, which could have resulted in the grounding of the carrier.The agency is currently examining the flow of funds between Kingfisher Airlines and group companies United Spirits and United Breweries, to identify the fraud.The airline, grounded since October 2012, lost its flying licence on 31 December 2012 when aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation refused to renew the licence over the company’s inability to provide a satisfactory plan to continue operations.In May, a DNA report claimed that United Spirits (USL) chairman Mallya misused company funds worth ₹170 crore to buy shares of his IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at ₹3,62,240 per share.Besides, audit firm Price WaterHouse Coopers had revealed that USL funds were parked with other Mallya-owned companies from 2010 to 2014 without the consent of the company’s shareholders.last_img read more

VIDEO Harvesting A Wild Lunch With A Master Forager

first_img Share When most of us are hungry for lunch, we pick up supplies at the grocery store or stop by the nearby cafe with the best lunch specials. Not Nick Spero. He goes outside and forages his own meal.Spero is a biologist who’s been foraging wild edibles since he was a little kid. He recalls learning about plants from his parents. “My father was born in Sparta [in Greece] and I think that was probably part of how they gathered their food,” Spero says. “At an early age, I can remember my father driving down the road and pointing plants out and saying how his mother would want to stop and pick those plants and eat them.”Spero presents programs and leads walks on foraging at the Natural History Society of Maryland, teaching others how to identify a wild edible and the health benefits of eating them. (Note: Spero is a foraging professional and we urge caution when foraging on your own.)“When you pick wild edibles, several considerations need to be carefully thought out: You need to pick responsibly, you need to pick ethically, and plants are living animals, so you just don’t want to rip them out of the ground. You want to be thankful for what you pick and pick responsibly,” Spero says. “Positive identification is really important with plants, so the margin of the leaf, the veins of the leaf all help with positive identification. And once you’ve picked things for years, you just get to realize what things are over time.”Spero says you should rely on positive identification when foraging — which basically means studying up and being sure you know what a plant is before picking and consuming it. He strongly recommends any of the foraging guides written by Samuel Thayer, an expert on edible wild plants.“The first time you eat something, you should eat it sparingly, to make sure that your system is not going to have an adverse reaction to that,” he cautions. “See how it goes and then try a little bit more, and then if you know you’re OK, have fun.”“There is an old adage of taking a plant and crunching it up, taking a soft area of your body [like the inside of your wrist], rub it on, wait, see if there’s any reaction. If there is no reaction, take the plant and rub it on your lips. Wait. Not seconds but minutes, half an hour. If there’s no reaction, take a little bit, chew it [and then spit it out.] Wait an hour or so. If there’s no reaction, eat a little bit, however you want to prepare it. If there’s no reaction, you’re probably safe.” But this type of taste test should only be used as a last resort, he says. “I prefer positive identification.”Spero led us on a wild, edible walk at Eden Mill Nature Center in Pylesville, Md., a location he hadn’t foraged in previously. Watch the video above to see how he picked and prepared lunch with cattails, garlic mustard, wood ear mushrooms and black locust flowers.Copyright 2017 NPR.

Astronomers discover the longest galaxyscale stripping process ever observed

first_img Citation: Astronomers discover the longest galaxy-scale stripping process ever observed (2015, November 7) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2015-11-astronomers-longest-galaxy-scale.html Journal information: Astronomy & Astrophysics (Phys.org)—Astronomers from the University of Bonn in Germany, have discovered what appears to be the longest X-ray tail associated with a stripping process from a galaxy on a large scale. This galaxy with the enormous X-ray tail is a member of a galaxy cluster known as Zwicky 8338. The researchers detailed their findings in a paper published on Nov. 2 in the Astronomy & Astrophysics journal. © 2015 Phys.org More information: Astronomy & Astrophysics, www.aanda.org/articles/aa/pdf/ … 15/11/aa27317-15.pdf Galaxy Cluster Abell 3627: Two Tails to Tellcenter_img Gerrit Schellenberger and Thomas Reiprich observed Zwicky 8338 using NASA’s Chandra X-ray observatory. They found out that one of the galaxies grouped in this cluster showcases a very long X-ray tail, which is approximately 248,000 light years in length. What is surprising is that the galaxy must have lost all of its X-ray emitting gas very recently.”It is likely the longest X-ray tail associated with a stripping process from a galaxy with the largest separation from the host galaxy ever detected,” they wrote in the paper.The observed galaxy, designated CGCG254-021, is located slightly more than one million light years from the center of Zwicky 8338. The researchers discovered that it resembles a comet, having distinctive features like a ‘head’ and a ‘tail’. The head, as it is described in the paper, is brighter than the galaxy’s tail, which is simply an elongated structure of diffuse emission.The scientists indicate that in the region outside the main tail, the temperature seems to be significantly higher than any part of the tail but still much lower than in the surrounding cluster region. They found out that the head is cooler than the tail, possibly due to a dense cool core.The researchers also tried to determine the chemical composition of this comet-like galaxy.”Despite the large uncertainties, there might be indications that the tail has a much lower abundance of heavy elements than the head of the comet, which is again consistent with the head being the remnant of a cool core,” the paper reads.The curious case of CGCG254-021 could bring important results in the field of cosmology and could improve our understanding about galaxy clusters. The crucial role in the stripping process as seen in this comet-shaped galaxy is played by the intracluster medium (ICM). It is a very hot plasma located at the center of a galaxy cluster. This plasma is enriched with heavy elements, such as iron. The researchers believe that the interaction of the ICM with subclusters or galaxy groups can produce bright X-rays and long tails such as the elongated tail described in this study.”Halo gas and the cold inter stellar medium (ISM) from the galaxy can then be stripped and interact with the ICM. Part of the gas from the galaxy is then used for new stars, either in the galactic halo or outside the galaxy in the ICM,” the researchers note.They point out that the amount of gas that apparently has been stripped from the galaxy is very high; the galaxy could lose almost all of its gas to the ICM. If the researchers are able to confirm this through the analysis of a longer observation, there would be a chance to study in detail the properties of this interaction for such a luminous and massive object. They conclude that a deeper X-ray observation is needed to characterize more detailed properties as well as a definite scenario for the interaction history.

Gottlieb The Giants are closer to the Browns than the Pats

first_imgDoug Gottlieb in for Colin:The Giants are closer to the Browns than the PatsThis season has been a complete disaster for the Giants, who had high hopes after making the playoffs last season. Many blamed coach Ben McAdoo for the on-field product, but the locker room has gotten even worse since he was fired earlier this year. Most recently, Landon Collins called corner Eli Apple a cancer. Collins has since apologized and Apple has been suspended for the final week of the season.Doug thinks that those who think the Giants can turn the franchise around next year and compete for the playoffs are way off base. The Giants have serious roster issues, will be drafting a young QB, and It won’t get rebuilt overnight with this level of dysfunction, regardless of past history. Right now they’re a lot closer to the dysfunctional Browns than they are to the Patriots. Signing  James Harrison is a classic Belichick moveBill Belichick and the Patriots swooped in and signed James Harrison after he was cut by the Steelers, and regardless of the impact Harrison has on the New England stretch run, if any, Gottlieb thinks it’s a classic Belichick move.Maybe Harrison will be able to fill in some intel gaps, and spill some some useful secrets from his old team, maybe the Patriots already know everything. When you’re as far inside Pittsburgh’s head as Belichick is, it doesn’t really matter. it’s just another minor mental edge where there was an opportunity to gain one. Another thing for the Steelers to worry about and prepare for. It’s ‘The Patriot Way’.Guests:Nick Wright – Co-host of First Thing’s First joins the show to argue KD vs. LeBron with Doug; and if the Rockets are fool’s gold.Peter King – Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the MMQB talks Josh Rosen as the #1 pick; why Belichick only got a 2nd rounder for Garoppolo.Eric Dickerson – FS1 NFL Analyst is in-studio talking about the Seahawks taking exception to his jersey bet with Zeke Elliott.Dean Blandino – FS1 Rules Analyst  and former NFL VP of Officiating is in-studio talking NFL replay; recent controversial calls; and how the system needs to be changed.last_img read more

New strain of banana fungus threatens world harvests

first_imgMELBOURNE, Australia — Six decades after a banana-killing fungus all but wiped out plantations across Latin America, a new strain threatens to destroy global harvests.A type of Fusarium wilt appeared this year in Australia’s main banana-growing state after spreading to Asia and Africa. While the fungus has been around since the 1990s and has yet to affect top exporter Ecuador, Fresh Del Monte Produce called it a potential “big nightmare.” The United Nations says the disease threatens supply, and Latin American growers are taking steps to limit the risk.The industry survived the demise of the top-selling Gros Michel banana in the 1950s by switching to a different variety, called the Cavendish. But this time, there’s no ready substitute. U.S. consumers now eat bananas almost as much as apples and oranges combined, and are the biggest buyers in an export market valued at more than $7 billion.“We don’t have anything that can replace the Cavendish,” said Gert Kema, a plant research leader at Wageningen University in the Netherlands, who studies banana diseases.Part of the problem is the way the market evolved more than a century ago, relying on a single breed rather than several varieties.In 1870, the founder of what became Chiquita Brands International imported 160 bunches of bananas from Jamaica to the U.S. that he sold at a profit, kicking off a U.S. industry built around perishable tropical fruit from overseas that competes with cheap, locally grown apples.While there are more than 1,000 types of bananas, many are either inedible or consumed where they are grown. To make money on exports, growers had to rely on a single variety to ensure uniformity and keep production costs low. Until the 1960s, that was the Gros Michel, which all but disappeared after a decades-long spread of what came to be known as Panama disease.“The monoculture, the reliance on a single banana breed that makes all this possible — that makes the low margins work — also makes that fruit very susceptible to disruption,” said Dan Koeppel, who has traveled to 30 countries to sample varieties and wrote “Banana: The Fate of the Fruit That Changed the World.”“The biggest problem is disease,” he added. Bananas for sale at an outdoor market in London in 2014. Illustrates BANANAS (category f) by Phoebe Sedgman © 2015, Bloomberg News. Moved Thursday, June 4, 2015. (MUST CREDIT: Bloomberg News photo by Simon Dawson). Bloomberg News photo by Simon DawsonFour cropsA lack of plant diversity isn’t unique to bananas. After a history in which more than 7,000 species were cultivated for human consumption, today just four crops — rice, wheat, corn and potatoes — are responsible for more than 60 percent of human energy intake, the U.N.’s Food & Agriculture Organization estimates.Losing breeds can be costly. When Gros Michel was killed off, the Cavendish proved immune to the fungus strain, though the bananas were smaller, less hardy and not as tasty, Koeppel said by phone from Los Angeles. It allowed the industry to recover, but the new variety required shipping in smaller boxes rather than big containers, he said. It took years to convert operations from farms to retailers.Still, demand took off. Global banana production surged five-fold from 1961, with increases in India and China, which together account for 37 percent of output, FAO data show.The U.S. and European Union are the top importers, while Ecuador and the Philippines are the top shippers. The FAO estimates bananas provide income or food to about 400 million people worldwide.Fusarium wiltOver the past two decades, a new strain of Fusarium wilt — called Panama disease Tropical Race 4 — emerged to threaten the Cavendish, including in the Philippines and China and in parts of Africa. This year, it was found in Queensland state, where more than 90 percent of Australia’s A$600 million ($467 million) crop is grown.TR4 enters the plant’s roots and spreads, invading vascular tissue. The first symptom is irregular yellowing of older leaves, which later turn brown and dry out. The disease poses no threat to humans.Growers from across Latin America met in March to create a regional defense effort and will gather again in September or October, said Eduardo Ledesma, director of the Banana Exporters’ Association in Ecuador. No specific regional measures are in place, though Ecuador growers have asked the government to fumigate all containers, he said.“If we carry out these controls at a regional level, then it will be very difficult for it to spread,” Ledesma said from Guayaquil, Ecuador. “Not impossible, because nothing is impossible in life, but very difficult.”The strain is easily spread by people — through dirt on shoes, tires on trucks, shipping containers or other infected equipment — as well as through rain, floods and run-off water. Because most of the world’s Cavendish bananas are clones, a disease affecting one plant affects them all, the FAO says.Dole Food said the disease isn’t present in the Americas or western Africa, from where the company imports supplies, and it’s looking at how to develop a disease-resistant banana. Fresh Del Monte said none of its company farms in Latin America has been impacted and it’s taking steps to prevent contaminated material from entering its farms and container yards. An external spokesman for Chiquita, now owned by Cutrale Group and Safra Group, declined to comment on how the company is managing the risk.In Queensland, where residents are affectionately known as banana-benders, a farm in Tully, about 800 miles north of Brisbane, was quarantined and some plants were destroyed after TR4 was detected on March 3. Another quarantine 112 miles north of the farm was revoked after final tests were negative, and no other cases have been disclosed.After an initial shutdown of the infected farm, the first truckloads of fruit left in April with harvesting allowed to resume under strict biosecurity arrangements. The government says it’s not feasible to eradicate the fungus.Researchers like Wageningen’s Kema say the disease will continue to spread, despite efforts to contain it, as long as susceptible varieties are being grown.“History is repeating itself,” banana author Koeppel said. “If you look at the map, this disease is marching.”With assistance from Nathan Gill in Quito and Stephen Stapczynski in New York.© 2015, Bloomberg News Facebook Comments Related posts:GlobalTies highlights role of public diplomacy at 2015 Latin America Dialogue Costa Rican coffee exports get a jolt from high prices Chinese leader’s visit has big implications for Latin America Coveted and criticized, Latin America’s rich multiplylast_img read more

Asking Prices Up 107 in June

Trulia also tracked the 100 largest metro areas and revealed 99 markets experienced an increase in asking prices over the last year. While home prices have been trending upward for more than two years in markets such as San Jose, Phoenix, Denver, and Miami, certain market– especially along the [COLUMN_BREAK] East Coast and Midwest–finally bottomed out over the past six months. Among the recently bottomed-out markets, Edison-New Brunswick, New Jersey, saw the biggest jump in asking prices, at 8.6 percent. Chicago was close behind with an 8.4 percent increase, followed by Lake County-Kenosha County, Illinois-Wisconsin (+7.9 percent), Baltimore (+7.1 percent), and St. Louis (+6.4 percent). According to Trulia’s chief economist Jed Kolko, the increase in home prices and mortgage rates has added a significant cost to homeownership. “”In the past year, buying a home has become at least 20 percent more expensive,”” said Kolko. “”For young first-time homebuyers who don’t remember life during and before the bubble, these rising costs are a rude awakening.””Rents rose at a slower pace of 2.8 percent year-over-year, though it was still the biggest increase since January. In Houston, New York, and Philadelphia, rents picked up at a faster pace than asking prices. Though, the scenario was reversed in Las Vegas; Oakland, California; and Sacramento, where asking prices shot up by at least 30 percent while rents saw a slight decrease over the last year. in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicingcenter_img Asking Prices Up 10.7% in June Sharelast_img read more
