GPS Protects the Baby Jesus From Theft

first_imgThere are a couple of ways to get my attention with a press release. First, you can quote The Big Lebowski in the subject line. You can also give your product a truly bizarre name. Congratulations, Brick House Security, the “Nobody F’s With the Jesus” e-mail you sent out for your GPS Jesus Program got my attention.GPS Jesus is the name of a program aimed at protecting nativity scenes. Brick House is donating GPS devices for communities to place in baby Jesuses to help curb stolen nativity scenes.The company worked with 30 communities in the program last year and will be expanding out to 100 for 2010. “There’s been no attempt of theft since we announced that we’re tracking our Jesus,” Alan Czyewski of St. Ambrose Church, Old Bridge, N.J. is quoted as saying in the aforementioned press release. “This is our third year, and we love this. People are now well aware of our GPS Jesus, so they leave it alone.” The Christian messiah abides.last_img read more

Apple gives Samsung the boot takes iPad 2 chip business elsewhere

first_imgSamsung‘s relationship with Apple is complicated, to say the least. On the one hand, Samsung has numerous products that directly compete with Apple’s, especially in the mobile space. Samsung’s Galaxy line-up — the Galaxy S smartphone, the Galaxy Player PMP, and the Galaxy Tab tablet — are some of the most popular Android alternatives to Apple’s iOS devices out there. That makes them an enemy to Apple. AdChoices广告On the other hand, though, Apple is Samsung’s biggest customer: Cupertino just inked a $7.8 billion deal with Samsung to supply components for the iPhone and iPad. That’s a huge chunk of change.It’s a strange, conflicted relationship… and it might be about to blow up like many dysfunctional marriages of convenience, as Samsung has reportedly been passed over to produce the iPad 2‘s A5 system-on-a-chip in favor of a Taiwan-based chipmarker.According to reports, Apple has just signed a deal with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. to produce their dual-core A5 SoC. Since Samsung built the last one, that’s a big change, and one that could freeze Samsung out of the iPhone 5, which is also anticipated to use the A5 CPU.Why Apple has decided to switch things up isn’t known. Apple could be trying to avoid market conflicts — as we said, Samsung’s a big competitor — or it simply be a move to the better supplier, as TSMC is the lead in producing 40 nanometer processors.Regardless, if the shift to TSMC is announced, it’s unclear what that means for Samsung. Apple supposedly just signed a nearly $8 billion deal with Samsung, but that was never officially announced. Did Apple change its mind at the last minute? I guess we’ll know if we see Samsung stock sliding down the abyss.Read more at EETimeslast_img read more

Spurs roll to 20 lead over Trail Blazers

first_imgSAN ANTONIO — Portland coach Terry Stotts is running out of adjectives and analogies to describe the San Antonio Spurs’ dominance in the second quarter. Kawhi Leonard scored 20 points, Tony Parker had 16 points and 10 assists, and San Antonio rolled to a 114-97 victory over the Trail Blazers on Thursday night for a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference semifinals.After being struck by a “tidal wave” during the second quarter of the opener, Portland took on even more water in Game 2.“The onslaught at the beginning of the second quarter was obviously the turning point in the game,” Stotts said. Boris Diaw scored six straight points to ignite a 23-8 run that gave San Antonio a 54-36 lead with 7 minutes remaining in the first half.The Spurs outscored the Trail Blazers 41-25 in the second quarter, raising their advantage to 77-48 in that period in winning the first two games of the best-of-seven series convincingly. Nicolas Batum scored 21 points for the Trail Blazers. Damian Lillard had 19 points and LaMarcus Aldridge added 16 points and 10 rebounds, but the Trail Blazers’ All-Star duo put up 43 shots.last_img read more

Amazon adding 800 more jobs in Austin after NYC HQ2 fails

first_img Tech Industry Share your voice Austin, Texas, is home to the Whole Foods headquarters. Drew Anthony Smith/Getty Images Amazon faced a chilly reception in New York, but it appears Texas is more than happy to cozy up to the tech giant.The world’s biggest online store on Thursday said it’s expanding its tech hub in Austin, Texas, and hiring 800 new tech workers there. Along with an existing Amazon tech hub, Amazon-owned Whole Foods’ corporate headquarters is also located in Austin.The announcement comes a little more than a month after the company scraped its much-ballyhooed plans to build a 25,000-employee campus in New York City following blistering criticism. Local activists and politicians complained about the company’s lavish $3 billion incentives package, the potential strain on infrastructure and Amazon’s alleged mistreatment of its workers.In announcing the end of the New York project, Amazon said it planned to move forward with its other 25,000-employee campus in Virginia and a 5,000-employee site in Nashville, and also expand its 17 corporate offices and tech hubs around the US and Canada. An Amazon representative told the Austin American-Statesman on Thursday that the local project wasn’t related to the pullout from New York and was in process for several years.Amazon won’t receive any incentives from the state or local governments to open a new a 145,000-square-foot space in a mixed-use tower, the publication reported. The new office will open in 2020 and hiring will take place over several years, it said.Amazon said its created 22,000 full-time jobs across Texas since 2011. Austin was one of the 20 finalists in Amazon’s year-long search for a new headquarters, dubbed HQ2, that would become an equal to the original Seattle campus. The project was eventually split in two, with New York getting half and Virginia getting the other. Amazon Comments 2 Tagslast_img read more

Alaska Supreme Court upholds superior court ruling against Save Our Salmon Initiative

first_imgIn a ruling issued Friday, Alaska’s Supreme Court upheld the overturning of the ‘Save Our Salmon’ Initiative.Download AudioSave Our Salmon was adopted by a narrow vote in the Lake and Peninsula Borough in 2011. It established a borough-level permitting process to develop a mine like Pebble. Its sponsors believed it would not only add a layer of protection against Pebble, but perhaps preempt the mine developers investing further in the project since that permit would be all but impossible to obtain.Save our Salmon was challenged in court by Pebble and the State of Alaska in separate lawsuits which were later joined. In March 2014, Superior Court Judge John Suddock ruled in their favor, striking down the initiative, saying it superseded the state’s natural resources permitting authority under the constitution.The ballot sponsors, George Jacko and Jackie Hobson, who were backed financially by Bob Gilliam, appealed the ruling to the Supreme Court. On Friday, the court issued a 20 page opinion siding with Suddock that Save Our Salmon was not lawful and leaving it overturned.last_img read more

Kumaraswamy never treated me as friend but like enemy

first_imgBengaluru: The war of words between the Congress and JD(S) continued unabated with Siddaramaiah on Sunday slamming H D Kumaraswamy for treating him as an “enemy” and indicated that it led to the fall of the coalition government headed by the latter. His comments were in response to Kumaraswamy’s recent interview to a news portal, in which he reportedly said Siddaramaiah treated JD(S) as its first enemy. Also Read – Shah urges women to shun plastic bags Advertise With Us However, Kumaraswamy on Sunday clarified that he had not made such remarks and his interview had been ‘distorted’. “There lies the problem. He (Kumaraswamy) started nurturing grudge against me by treating me as an enemy. Instead of the foe, had he considered me as a friend, a trusted man and an ally from the coalition party, nothing would have happened,” Siddaramaiah told reporters in Mysuru. Also Read – Free bus travel for women gets Cabinet nod Advertise With Us The Congress stalwart charged Kumaraswamy with “hiding” his failure by blaming others. “How can I be an enemy? Those who don’t know how to rule say such things,” Siddaramaiah said. The JD(S) leader had reportedly alleged that Siddaramaiah was never happy with the government formation under him. Kumaraswamy in a tweet said: “Some news channels have distorted my interview to a news portal a few days ago.” Advertise With Us “I had only said that more than BJP, Siddaramaiah had targeted our party during the elections but I never said Siddaramaiah is my first enemy. There is no need for unwanted confusion,” he said. Almost a month after the fall of the coalition government, a political slugfest has broken out between Congress leader Siddaramaiah and the JD(S) first family led by former prime minister HD Deve Gowda with each blaming the other for it. Gowda in an interview to a newspaper on Thursday had held Siddaramaiah accountable for the fall of the government. The JD(S) patriarch had termed as “wrong” the decision of Congress high command to make Kumaraswamy the Chief Minister without taking Siddaramaiah into confidence before forming the coalition government, saying the Congress strong man in the state was unable to accept it. Siddaramaiah had rubbished the charge very next day, terming the allegations “baseless, politically motivated and false.” The Congress-JD(S) government collapsed on July 22 after the confidence motion moved by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy was defeated in the Assembly, bringing to an end his 14-month long turbulent tenure marked by dissidence within the Congress. Siddaramaiah had come under criticism after the government collapsed as most of the rebel Congress MLAs, including ST Somashekar, Byrathi Basavaraj, MTB Nagaraj, Munirathna and K Sudhakar, were considered his loyalists. However, rubbishing claims that he instigated those MLAs to resign and destabilise the government, Siddaramaiah had alleged the unilateral style of functioning of the JD(S) leadership led to the collapse of the government.last_img read more

No election now in country says Ershad

first_imgHM ErshadMentioning that there is no election in the country these days, Jatiya Party chairman HM Ershad on Saturday demanded that the polling system be reformed, reports UNB.”Candidates are being elected uncontested or through false votes or election engineering,” Ershad said at a programme organised by Jatiya Party-led United National Alliance (Shammilito Jatiya Jote) at Laldighi Maidan in Chattogram.Turning to bank scandals, Ershad said looting banks, including the reserve heist of the Bangladesh Bank, are rare incidents in history.”The banking system in the country has collapsed as the government didn’t take any legal steps,” he said adding, “So, we’ve to save our country as people want a change.”Criticising the government’s activities, the former military ruler said the ruling party men are looting banks in the name of development.About the prime minister’s promise to provide rice at only Tk 10, the Jatiya Party chief said, “Now rice is sold at Tk 60-70. How will a rickshaw-puller who has 3-4 children feed his family?”Talking about the country’s development during his rule, Ershad said, “No government could make development like I did in my tenure. So, the people of the country want to see me in power again. We don’t want a one-party government. Jatiya Party wants to form government with the participation of all parties.”Ershad called upon people to get united and come forward to save the country.last_img read more

The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide Isabelle

first_imgStay on target Isabelle Turns Over a New Leaf!Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is huge. Not just in terms of hype and importance and sales potential, but just in terms of sheer stuff. The Nintendo Switch mascot fighter features over a hundred stages, nearly a thousand songs, and too many Pokemon and items and Assist Trophies to think of crammed onto a cartridge you can plan on the go or on a TV. When you have as many big franchises as Nintendo, putting them all in one game will make that game is very big boy indeed.But the biggest, most exciting thing about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is its mind-blowing, heartwarming roster of playable characters. Fighting games pride themselves not just on the strength of their mechanics but the strength of its fighters, especially in a crossover fighters like this. And Super Smash Bros. Ultimate crushes all rivals by including every single playable character from the across the four previous games in the twenty-year-old series. Include the new combatants and so far we have over 70 fighters to wrap our heads around. We’re excited, but we’re also intimidated. So to get ready for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, every day, character by character, we’re creating the ultimate guide to all of its characters. Today’s fighter: Isabelle. ‘Astral Chain’ and Other Dumb Nintendo SongsThe Ultimate Super Smash Bros. Character Guide: Hero center_img Who Are They?Although Animal Crossing is a game about playing as a generic version of yourself, the cast of animal characters you encounter in your new town have more than enough personality to spare. And ever since she debuted in the recent but beloved Animal Crossing: New Leaf for Nintendo 3DS, Isabelle quickly became a crossover fan favorite. She’s a dog secretary that aids you as the mayor for crying out loud!Smash HistoryIsabelle is the second Animal Crossing character in Smash Bros., after Villager. She appeared as an Assist Trophy in the Wii U version, but after becoming a playable character in Mario Kart 8, her Smash Promotion only made sense. Although she shares some moves with Villager, like pocketing projectiles and a slingshot forward aerial, Isabelle is considered unique enough to be one of Smash Ultimate’s handful of new characters.What Looks New in Ultimate?Not that we’re complaining, but why do they keep making Animal Crossing characters play like Snake? First Villager had the Lloid rocket and tree traps. And now Isabelle can plant Lloid rockets like proximity mines and launch people into the air with a stop sign/mortar. Add in a fishing pole command grab with tons of troll potential and Isabelle’s cheery demeanor may just be a cover for her ability to set devastating traps.Our Hopes?To be brutally honest, Isabelle wasn’t our first pick for a new Animal Crossing character. Tom Nook, Resetti, K.K. Slider, that pig lady that sells like vegetables like it’s the stock market. The series is an embarrassment of riches when it comes to lovable characters. But after our hands-on time, Isabelle’s tricky moveset does have us seriously intrigued. A lack of powerful finishers may, appropriately, be all that holds her back.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases Dec. 7 for Nintendo Switch. Until we can play more for ourselves, changes we talk about here are mostly speculation.

(PhysOrg.com) — A group of UK scientists has created a graphene ink that can be used to ink-jet print electronic devices such as thin film transistors. Citation: Graphene ink created for ink-jet printing of electronic components (2011, November 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-11-graphene-ink-ink-jet-electronic-components.html More information: Ink-Jet Printed Graphene Electronics, arXiv:1111.4970v1 [cond-mat.mtrl-sci] arxiv.org/abs/1111.4970AbstractWe demonstrate ink-jet printing as a viable method for large area fabrication of graphene devices. We produce a graphene-based ink by liquid phase exfoliation of graphite in N-Methylpyrrolidone. We use it to print thin-film transistors, with mobilities up to~95cm^2V^(-1)s(-1), as well as transparent and conductive patterns, with~80 % transmittance and~30kOhm/sq sheet resistance. This paves the way to all-printed, flexible and transparent graphene devices on arbitrary substrates. Professor of Nanotechnology, Andrea Ferrari, and colleagues from the Engineering Department at the University of Cambridge have developed a method of creating a graphene ink that can be used with a modified ink-jet printer. Graphene consists of a hexagonal lattice of carbon only one atom thick, and has great advantages over polymer inks because of its greater electron mobility and electrical conductivity. Electronic components such as thin film transistors (TFTs) can already be created using ink-jet printing with ferro-electric polymer inks, but the performance of such components is poor and they are too slow for many applications.Beginning with flakes of pure graphite, the team exfoliated layers of graphene using liquid phase exfoliation (LPE), which consists of sonication of the graphite in the presence of a solvent, N-Methylpyrrolidone (NMP). The graphene layers were ultracentrifuged and then filtered to remove any particles large enough (>1μm in diameter) to block the ink-jet printer heads. The graphene flakes were then used as the basis for a graphene-polymer ink, which was printed, using a modified ink-jet printer, onto Si/SiO2 substrates and the transparent substrate borosilicate glass. The final step in the process was annealing at high temperature to remove the solvent.They demonstrated the new transparent graphene ink by using it to ink-jet print thin-film transistors, which they made by printing the graphene ink on Si/SiO2 wafers. They used chromium-gold pads to define the source and drain contacts, and they then printed a layer of an organic polymer, PQT-12, on top.The team achieved promising results at least comparable to current inks. They achieved mobilities of up to around 95cm2V−1s−1, about 80% transmittance and 30kohm sheet resistance. Non-graphene polymer inks typically achieve mobilities of less than 0.5cm2V−1s−1, while adding carbon nanotubes can increase this to around 50cm2V−1s−1.The results should improve as the method is refined and enhanced. Their successful first demonstration paves the way for the development of flexible and cheap electronics that can be printed on a wide variety of substrates. Devices printed using graphene inks could include wearable computers, electrical paper, sensors, electronic tags, and flexible touch screens.The paper is available online from arXiv.org.last_img read more

Bubba Watson roars back to claim victory

first_imgMasters champion Bubba Watson roared back to beat Tim Clark in a playoff after seemingly blowing his chances down the back nine of the WGC-HSBC Champions on a super Sunday in Shanghai. Watson  punched the air after holing an outrageous 20-yard bunker shot for eagle at the 18th to get into a playoff with South Africa’s Clark at 11-under. The left-hander then rolled in a lightning quick 20-foot putt down the hill on the same hole for the winning birdie, sparking wild celebrations for his first world golf championships event win and his first victory of any kind outside of US. Leading at 12-under par with three holes to play, Watson had seemingly imploded with a bogey followed by a double-bogey at the 16th and 17th to fall to nine under. At that point five players were a shot ahead of him, until his magic from the sand saw him finish 11-under for the tournament. Clark, playing alongside Watson, holed out for birdie from six feet at 18 to also get to 11 under as Rickie Fowler’s chance disappeared into the greenside water. The final group of overnight leader Graeme McDowell, Martin Kaymer and Japan’s Hiroshi Iwata then all failed to get the birdie they needed to join the extra-holes shootout.  Also Read – Khel Ratna for Deepa and Bajrang, Arjuna for JadejaWatson turned up the heat in the front nine with a hat-trick of birdies from the sixth to lead at the turn by one from McDowell and Kaymer. Watson put his drive into the water at 13 and dropped a shot to slip back alongside McDowell, one ahead now of Kaymer who dropped a shot at the 11th after finding sand twice. Watson then birdied the par-five 14th from 15 feet to put himself alone in froant. Iwata, who was hanging on grimly after a two-over par outward half, finally nailed his first birdie at 11th and clawed his way back into contention with a fine back nine before Watson’s stunning finish.last_img read more

Man arrested at Cancun airport for undeclared cash exgovernment worker

first_imgCancun, Q.R. — A man arrested at the Cancun International Airport in June for carrying a large amount of undeclared cash is a previous government employee.On June 28, a Mexican national identified as 45-year-old Eduardo N, was arrested after arriving at the Cancun International Airport from Chetumal in an air taxi where, after inspection, he was found carrying nearly half a million peso in cash.Officials have since confirmed that Eduardo N was a state government employee up until January of this year. The secretary of finance and planning, Yohanet Torres Muñoz, confirmed that he was an employee of Selfiplan who resigned during the first few days of January.“The person who came out on the news is not a current state government worker. He resigned at the beginning of January after I took possession of the Ministry of Finance,” she said.She added that Sefiplan is not involved in any way regarding the investigation of the money that Eduardo N had in his possession, noting that it will be the federal authorities who carry out that report.During his search, federal police counted out 448,000 peso in bills. Since Eduardo N was unable to legally prove where he got the money, he was arrested and handed over to the public ministry where he remains in detention.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The Inflighto app is available on the Apple App St

first_imgThe Inflighto app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play as a free download. Inflighto also offers a number of paid ‘upgrades’ for users who want premium features such as live weather radar overlay – so they can see where the clouds are on the flight-path and at their destination. Co-founder John Hopkins said; “Passengers can access live weather information so they can better understand why an aircraft may be placed in a holding pattern due to severe weather or anticipate when to expect turbulence during their flight. It’s like the weather radar pilots have in the cockpit but in the palm of your hand!”.App features include geolocated points of interest, tourist destinations and events information so airline passengers can easily see flight path highlights and identify key landmarks as they fly. The Inflighto app is the first in-flight entertainment app designed by pilots for use by airline passengers while in-flight. It combines highly-accurate ADSB flight-tracking technology and premium content to give passengers an elevated perspective of the world from the air, and supersedes the traditional ‘moving-maps’ currently used by airlines.Inflighto’s co-founder, Christopher Smyth said that the Inflighto app allows airlines to transition traditional, seat-back moving-maps to passengers’ own mobile devices. He said that many airlines are replacing seat-back, in-flight entertainment systems with ‘bring your own device’ solutions to reduce the cost of expensive technology installation and to save weight and fuel costs. “The Inflighto app provides a cost-effective moving-map solution to airlines that is fully autonomous and doesn’t require integration with aircraft systems. Inflighto uses ADSB flight-tracking technology so it remains super-accurate on large airliners, at any altitude, anywhere in the world”. The Inflighto app is designed for use with in-flight Wi-Fi which is being rolled-out on commercial airlines globally, and tracks over 90,000 flights and 7,000 airlines world-wide. airlinesappInflighto Inflighto Pty Ltd is an Australian-based technology company formed in 2017 by two Australian pilots, John Hopkins and Christopher Smyth, and the company yesterday announced the launch of Inflighto – a sophisticated in-flight entertainment and flight-tracking app. Inflighto is also the only flight-tracking app to incorporate live marine vessel tracking, live weather radar, satellite images and in-flight chat. For aspiring pilots, the Inflighto app provides live flight data including altitude, ground speed, vertical speed, and heading and geographic location coordinates. Another unique feature of the Inflighto app is In-flight Chat. This innovative feature allows passengers to chat with flight crew and fellow passengers in an open chat-room dedicated to their flight. “Inflight Chat provides the potential for pilots and cabin crew to communicate with interested passengers about flight path highlights without using the PA system. This doesn’t disrupt other passengers who may be resting,” said Smyth.Inflighto also allows passengers to share flight-path images and accurate flight schedule information on social media. last_img read more
