UN AIDS programme criticizes South African police action at hospital protest

The Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) cited news reports that about 40 people were injured, one seriously, following a peaceful protest for HIV treatment at Frontier Hospital in Queenstown, Eastern Cape Province.“UNAIDS has long supported and will continue to support the freedom of assembly and association of people living with AIDS,” it said in a statement issued in Geneva.“It is imperative for people living with HIV to be able to openly share information about the disease, to learn about options for treatment and to advocate for better care – including access to life-saving treatment,” it added.“UNAIDS calls on leaders across the globe to ensure that people living with HIV are not deprived of these rights.” read more

BlackBerry earnings will offer clearer glimpse into new smartphone sales

TORONTO – BlackBerry (TSX:BB) will reveal some of the most important sales figures yet for its new smartphones on Friday as the company issues its latest quarterly results and provides a glimpse of whether the phones are catching on with customers.Analysts have offered optimistic, yet cautious, expectations for the Waterloo, Ont.-based company’s first-quarter performance.It will be the first time BlackBerry has provided shipment numbers to the crucial U.S. market for its touchscreen phone, and also the first sign of whether anticipation for the keyboard model translated into sales in several major markets like the U.K. and Canada.“Expectations have been rising,” said Richard Tse, a technology analyst with Cormark Securities Inc.“I think that broadly, people believe that the initial rollout of these BB10 devices into the carrier channels potentially gives them a bit of momentum in terms of stocking the inventories.”Investors will be looking for any signs that BlackBerry has turned itself around on sales of its new BlackBerry10 devices and whether the trend is expected to continue.BlackBerry launched its Z10 touchscreen phones, equipped with its new BlackBerry 10 operating system in January. The keyboard Q10 versions were launched months later in Canada, the U.K. and other markets.The complex rollout of the devices has made it difficult for the technology community to conclude whether the phones are a widespread success.The U.S. market has lagged behind much of the world, and didn’t begin stocking the latest keyboard phone until early June, which means it will take another quarterly report before shipment figures are made public.Edward Jones analyst Bill Kreher said BlackBerry’s biggest draw in the upcoming months is the launch of its lower-priced BlackBerry Q5 phone, which will appeal to customers in emerging markets outside of the U.S.“The company has lost relevance in the U.S. but still holds some significant share in emerging economies in areas like Indonesia,” Kreher said from St. Louis, Mo.“So it would be critical for them to get those consumers from (the older models) and maintain their subscriber base.”He said sustaining growth will be key to the company’s comeback and return to profitability.“I think the product cycle continues to shorten, particularly given the number of partners in the Android eco-system. It will be difficult for BlackBerry to stay top-of-mind unless it can continue to develop hit products,” said Kreher.In the last quarter, BlackBerry reported that it shipped about one million smartphones on its new BlackBerry 10 operating system. Kreher estimates that number might be upwards of 3.5 million phones in the first quarter.The company, which formerly called itself Research In Motion, reported a surprise profit of US$98 million or 19 cents per share for quarter ended March 2, compared with $125 million or 24 cents per share loss a year ago. Revenue increased to $2.68 billion.In a note Monday, RBC Capital Markets analyst Mark Sue forecasted BlackBerry’s revenues at $3.5 billion, slightly above the $3.4 billion consensus estimate provided by Thomson Reuters. They put earnings per share at nine cents, compared with a consensus of six cents.Despite the forecast, the note warned that BlackBerry will face challenges in attracting and growing its customer base.“Competitive device launches in the second half (of the year) may mean increased spending for BlackBerry to sustain its product refresh,” wrote Sue.“Samsung and Apple, who have significantly more resources, are having a tough time growing their units, so it may be even more difficult for BlackBerry, which is much smaller and still playing catch up.”The note said investors should also anticipate lower profit margins in the next few quarters, with the anticipated launch of the BlackBerry Q5.Investment firm Raymond James questioned whether the BlackBerry Q5 device would be enough to satiate customers in emerging markets, which was BlackBerry’s largest growing subscriber base last year and where it has long benefited from name recognition.Earlier this week, BlackBerry launched its business service platform for corporate and government workers for rival Google Android and Apple smartphones.The operating system, called Secure Work Space, allows Apple and Android users to separate their data and work apps, such as email and calendars, from their personal apps bringing a greater level of security.This feature is already available on BlackBerry 10 phones.It also announced that it be the official mobile computing partner of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, as part of a sponsorship agreement with the company that owns the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors and Toronto Marlies.BlackBerry said the partnership will mean the development of new, interactive apps for sports fans who use the Blackberry 10 devices.Founded in 1984, BlackBerry devices are now sold through 650 wireless carriers in 175 countries. It has about 76 million subscribers worldwide.BlackBerry shares closed down 58 cents, or 3.71 per cent, at $15.05 Thursday on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Its Always A Bull Market For Tom Thibodeau

Among the stranger storylines this NBA offseason is the near-constant Thibs Watch, which lights up like a Bat Signal whenever a former player of the Timberwolves coach becomes available on the free-agent market.The legend grew a bit more Monday when Luol Deng, who played for Tom Thibodeau in Chicago, reached an agreement to rejoin his old coach in Minnesota, pushing the total number of former-Bull Thibs disciples to four before training camp even starts.We’ll come back to the questions about whether this is actually a good thing, but it’s worth noting that Thibodeau and the Wolves are flirting with NBA history.With four of Thibodeau’s former players on the roster,1The Timberwolves also had four former Thibodeau pupils last year, when they featured Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson, Derrick Rose and Aaron Brooks. the club again sits in a second-place tie for the largest collection of former pupils that a coach has ever accumulated.2Larry Brown and the 2009-10 Charlotte Bobcats also had four. The record for ex-players being reunited with a coach is five, set by Kevin Loughery and the Washington Bullets in 1986-87, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Thibodeau could tie this mark if center Joakim Noah — reportedly on his way out of New York, perhaps through the stretch provision — eventually ends up joining the Timberwolves, too.Of course, the key difference here is that Thibodeau, unlike Loughery, also serves as Minnesota’s team president and has final say over personnel matters. None of the four TimberBulls were on the roster before Thibodeau joined the organization3Charles Jones, Dan Roundfield and Ennis Whatley had all been on the Bullets before Loughery was installed as the head coach there. in 2016. Butler was acquired via trade, while Gibson, Rose and Deng were all picked up in free agency.And to an extent, what Thibodeau is doing makes sense. Minnesota transitioned somewhat quickly from being an upstart with a pair of young, talented players to having very real expectations after the trade for Butler. Having familiar veterans around can potentially flatten a young team’s steep learning curve. In trying to change the team’s culture — especially the way Thibodeau goes about establishing his — it’s helpful to have people in place who set the tone at a previous stop. Thibodeau’s standards on defense and in practice sessions are well-known, yet not everyone is prepared to give the effort that he requires on a daily basis. Deng understands that better than most.“I came in here, and I thought no one was here,” Deng told ESPN’s Nick Friedell years ago about a practice in Chicago. “And I tried to get some shots up, and then he came down [from his office]. He put me through one of the toughest workouts I’ve ever done. That’s when I knew [that playing for him] was going to be no joke.”Deng’s comment touches on an inherent problem with the sort of continuity Thibs is keeping: The coach appears to be drawn to players he knows he can push to the limit physically.4This isn’t to blame Thibodeau for the injuries many of his key players have suffered. There isn’t any evidence to draw a direct correlation between his coaching style and the injuries of those players.This stood out to me a year ago when I was in Minneapolis for T-Wolves media day. Thibodeau was asked whether he planned to dole out minutes more conservatively, and he reeled off these numbers: Minnesota was going into the 2017-18 season with five of the NBA’s 17 players who had appeared in all 82 games the year before. His response may have been read as suggesting that he doesn’t need to dial back certain players’ minutes because they’ve shown before that they can handle the workload. (Point guard Jeff Teague, one of those who had played all 82 the year before — and then missed time with an injury this past season — was on record saying he felt the Wolves’ bench needed to play more and that Minnesota starters got tired.)Beyond that, there’s also the question of whether some of Thibodeau’s former players really fit together on the court anymore. Almost no one would turn down an opportunity to have Butler or Gibson on their team, obviously. But Rose, despite being a bright spot during the playoffs, was a controversial signing, and he took playing time from Tyus Jones, who is one of the more efficient players in the entire league. The dynamic is obviously different than it was in Chicago; this is clearly Butler’s team. But Rose and Butler never truly jelled in Chicago, and ball movement wasn’t particularly crisp in the limited moments they shared this past season. (Minnesota reversed the ball less than once per 48 minutes when that pair played together — down from almost 13 reversals per 48 minutes when Butler played without Rose, according to Second Spectrum.)5In fairness, the Timberwolves did produce a whopping 20 net rating in that limited 32-minute sample that Butler and Rose played together, according to NBA Advanced Stats, perhaps providing some hope for next season.There’s reason to believe in the Deng signing — regardless of his history with the coach — as he fills a positional need and has suffered limited wear and tear on his body the past two seasons, since the Lakers hardly used him. Deng may not be a particularly solid scorer anymore, but the Timberwolves — top four on offense but bottom 10 on defense — can likely do without his offense if he has anything left to give on D. It would seem harder to advocate for a Noah signing, should he and the Knicks part ways in the coming weeks. While the former defensive player of the year could potentially mentor Karl Anthony-Towns, who still has much to learn as a rim protector, there isn’t as natural a spot in the rotation for him, given that Towns, Gibson and Gorgui Dieng can all play center.In any case, if Noah becomes a free agent in the coming weeks, don’t be surprised if Thibs’s Bat Signal lights up the sky. At this point, it would be more surprising if it didn’t. read more

Meet the first nonwhite circuit judge at the Old Bailey

In the end I had to show him my wig and gown before they would actually let me into the building.”Dhir also confounded teachers at her school in Dundee, where she struggled with dyslexia.

Australian minerals sector supports ambitious and pragmatic trade policy

first_imgBrendan Pearson, Chief Executive, Minerals Council of Australia says the minerals sector supports an ambitious and pragmatic approach to trade liberalisation in the wake of the US administration’s decision to opt out of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).“The absence of the US need not kill the TPP.“For Australia (which already has an FTA with the US) there is still much to gain in a ‘TPP minus one’ approach. For the mining and mining services sectors this includes market and investment opportunities in nations like Peru, Vietnam and Canada as well as other economies.“A ‘TPP minus one’ won’t be easy but there is clearly considerable momentum amongst the negotiating partners to take fullest possible advantage of the deal on the table.“Meanwhile Australia should also work with its 15 East Asian partners to intensify the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership negotiations. This negotiation includes the 10 ASEAN economies plus China, Japan, India, New Zealand, Korea as well as Australia. That’s a market of 3.5 billion people with a collective GDP of $22.5 trillion.“In recent days, Chinese President Xi Jinping has signalled that China will embrace further market opening. We and other RCEP partners should take him at his word and seek to intensify the RCEP negotiations.“On the bilateral front, deals with India, Indonesia and the United Kingdom should all be pursued vigorously.”last_img read more

Air Force Plans to Shave Civilian Workforce

first_imgThe Air Force could be forced to lay off hundreds of civilian employees this year to meet funding targets and rebalance its civilian workforce, officials said Wednesday.Officials last year identified “more than 1,000 civilian overages” across 48 installations going into fiscal 2016, according to a press release. As a result, “some Air Force installations will implement civilian reduction in force (RIF) authorities effective through April 4.“Having the RIF authorities will assist in the placement of employees not assigned against funded positions and allow greater flexibilities for employees to be placed at their installations while retaining their grade or pay,” the release stated.Officials will attempt to reassign civilians to other positions, with the remaining employees eligible for future vacancies.Over the last two years, the service has relied on several rounds of voluntary separation and retirement programs as well as reassignments to vacant positions to reduce its civilian workforce. Those efforts “have moved us significantly closer to our target manning levels,” said Lt. Gen. Gina Grosso, deputy chief of staff for manpower, personnel and services.“We will take care of our civilian airmen by using every possible measure to minimize personal financial hardship for our civilian workforce and their families,” Grosso said. “We are committed to assisting each individual through this transition,” she stated.The Air Force’s use this year of RIF authorities is separate from sequestration actions, according to the release.Under a plan submitted to Congress in February, DOD is attempting to bring its total civilian workforce — minus exclusions for certain positions — from 238,000 in 2012 to 221,000 by 2017, reported Air Force Times.

After Harvey Is Houston Heeding The Call To Change Its Growth Model

first_img Listen For decades, the story of Houston has been of growth – growth that sometimes meant Houston led the nation in creating jobs and in gaining new residents.But what if in coming decades that growth slows or stops?A new report commissioned by the Center for Houston’s Future raises concerns.It found three big factors that could limit growth: not enough educated workers, a diminishing oil industry, and a region plagued by too much traffic and too little done to prevent flooding.In the first of three installments, News 88.7 looks at specifically how flooding could stymie growth in the decades ahead.Houston has long been known as a business-friendly city with few regulations and of course, no zoning.“Discover the unlimited opportunities awaiting you in Houston: the city with no limits,” narrates a video as part of the Greater Houston Partnership’s City with No Limits marketing campaign, underscored by positive, dramatic music.But how “limitless” should Houston be after the destruction Harvey caused last summer?That’s a question policy makers have been asking themselves a lot lately.Stephen Klineberg is a sociologist at Rice University and author of the annual Houston Area Survey. He says at least twice before did Houstonians experience wake-up calls that led to changes in how things are done here.The first was in 1999 when Houston made national news as the nation’s smog capital. The second was in 2002, when Houston lost its bid to host the 2012 Olympics. The reasoning: Houston was too ugly. “Got the business world’s attention, major improvements in quality of life in the city and Discovery Green and Buffalo Bayou Greenways Initiative,” Klineberg said. “Will Harvey be a wake-up call like that?”If you ask Houstonians, it may have been. The Houston Area Survey revealed two-thirds believe stricter regulations would have reduced the damage from Harvey. Seventy-one percent want to prohibit new construction in flood-prone areas.“It’s not a question of alternatives to growth but of alternative ways of growing,” Klineberg said. “How do we grow in a way that makes us more resilient, less prone to flooding, more attractive to the people who we need to attract into this city.”The city of Houston, for one, has been working on more stringent building regulations.The City Council recently passed changes to its Chapter 19 floodplain ordinance. Starting in the fall, new construction must be built at least two feet above the 500-year floodplain.“We want you to build, we want you to develop in the city of Houston,” Mayor Sylvester Turner said. “But we have to do it in a more resilient manner.”In another vote on April 25, the City Council hammered home its willingness to balance its business friendliness with the need to do more to prevent the impact from flooding.In a unanimous vote, council members supported a developer’s plan to build homes in a west Houston floodplain.Jim Blackburn, co-director of Rice University’s severe storm center, or SSPEED Center, calls it a bad decision.He said it’s a sign that Houston is not quite where it should be in this post-Harvey world.“Nothing less than our economic prosperity is at stake,” he said. “I just don’t think it’s being perceived that way. And I think that’s where I talk about the fact that there’s an urgency to addressing these problems. There’s a need for a vision and there’s a need for leadership that I have not seen so far.”That’s echoed by that report by the Center for Houston’s Future. It warns that the city’s existing growth model is not sustainable. “Flooding is only one of our problems,” Brett Perlman, the Center’s CEO, said. “We need to look at a broader definition of resilience to understand that there might be other shocks – cybersecurity, coastal storm surge, drought – that need to be dealt with.”The report suggests looking at what other cities have done to deal with similar challenges.For example, after the 1989 earthquake, San Francisco redesigned some of its infrastructure.In part 2 of this series, we’ll look at how Houston’s dependence on oil and gas may have to change for the city to remain on top.

The Best Horror Movies On Netflix

first_imgCurious as to the best streaming device for your buck? Look here.Netflix and chill? More like Netflix and… kill. Okay, now that we’ve got that out of our system, let’s talk about how the red-colored streaming video service has become an incredible destination for horror movies. Big names and super-obscure slasher flicks sit side by side on the virtual shelves, with hundreds of streaming titles to sift through.But with all that choice, how do you find the truly watchable ones? Geek is here for you, because we’re always here for you. These are, full stop, the best horror movies on Netflix streaming right now. As licenses change and new movies are added, we’ll update this list, but as of February 2017 these eleven movies are the scariest you’ll find.AdChoices广告OculusMost horror flicks go pretty easy on the viewer in terms of timeline, but the ambitious Oculus manages to juggle two plotlines 11 years apart with ease and scare the hell out of you doing it. The story concerns a mirror that induces supernatural hallucinations in people near it, and two generations of a family have to contend with its powers. What makes Oculus stand out from the raft of “haunted object” movies is the way it navigates the two timelines in a clever and diabolical way, leading to a third act twist that will blow your mind. It’s rare that we watch a horror film and say “this did something really new,” but this one does.Cabin FeverEli Roth’s 2002 gorefest Cabin Fever starts with one of the hoariest premises in horror history – a group of attractive young people head to a remote house in the woods for a little fun – and twists it until it bleeds. When a grotesque flesh-eating virus infects our leads, things go from bad to worse with madcap speed. Nothing Roth’s made since has lived up to the lean madness of Cabin Fever, including the absolutely unnecessary 2016 remake.Train To BusanZombie movies are a dime a dozen on Netflix, but this one takes some unconventional twists that make it very worth watching. The main thing that makes it interesting is the setting – when the dead rise and start chowing down on the living, our protagonist Seok-woo and his daughter are riding the rails to the city of Busan to visit her mother. When a train attendant gets the bite and turns, it kicks off a claustrophobic tale of survival on a moving vehicle. There’s talk of both a sequel and an American remake on the way.HellraiserIt’s impossible to overstate what a disruptive influence Clive Barker was on the horror industry in his prime. He brought a truly weird sensibility to his novels, dispensing with traditional monsters and frights to dip deep into world mythology, bizarre science and the nightmare that is the human mind. Oh, and he also directed. 1987’s Hellraiser has some weak spots, but the twisted plot and insanely great practical effects make it worth a watch. The design of Pinhead and his fellow Cenobites still ranks as some of the most iconic in horror history.TrollhunterThe “found footage” fad has been a horror mainstay since The Blair Witch Project, but most movies don’t do anything interesting with it. 2010 Norwegian flick Trollhunter is the exception. When a group of college kids head out into the frozen woods to lens a documentary about a bear poacher, they quickly find out they have more than they bargained for. Said poacher is actually engaged in a brutal war against trolls that explode in the sunlight, and their student project turns into a grisly, gory, ridiculous action-horror movie that’s unlike just about anything else.The VoicesBefore he was Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds starred in this horror comedy as Jerry, a cheerful guy who works at a bathtub family and comes home every night to take care of his beloved cat and dog… who talk to him and tell him to murder people. Jerry is a schizophrenic, you see, and when he doesn’t take his medication his pets get chatty. When he accidentally murders a co-worker he has a crush on, things start to go south for Jerry and it kicks off a blood-soaked comedy of errors that has one of the most bizarre endings we’ve ever seen.The ShiningStephen King might be the most-adapted novelist of all time, but he wasn’t satisfied with Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 version of The Shining. That’s bizarre, because it’s widely regarded as one of the best horror movies ever lensed. When writer Jack Torrance takes a job as caretaker of the Overlook Hotel during the winter, he intends to finish his long-delayed book. Unfortunately, the wandering spirits of the Overlook have other plans for him. The film is a gorgeous, incredibly influential piece of work. If you dig it, documentary Room 237, which goes into detail about many conspiracy theories surrounding the flick, is also streaming on Netflix.PontypoolThere are plenty of rious plague turns people into mindless, violent cannibals. Instead of being spread by blood, this one’s a virus in the English language itself, and manifests itself when you start repeating certain words over and over. The afflicted get so nuts that they chew their way through the faces of other people to make it stop. It’s a twisty premise that’s executed amazingly well, even if the ending doesn’t stick as well as it could.A Girl Walks Home Alone At NightHere’s a horror film so unique that many critics didn’t have any idea what to make of it. Ana Lily Amirpour’s 2014 A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night billed itself as “the first Iranian vampire Western,” and that description’s not far off the mark. The atmosphere is unlike anything else on this list, and although the plot is slight – a young Iranian man struggles to take care of his heroin-addicted father until he meets the titular Girl at Night – it’s incredibly engrossing. Horror is changing and growing, and it’s movies like this that are paving the way forward.It FollowsIt’s interesting to see how horror movies evolve with culture and technology. So many classic flicks just wouldn’t work in an era of cell phones and social networking. It Follows is one of the best attempts we’ve seen to put a modern spin on a classic concept. The basic premise is simple: after a sexual encounter, a young woman learns that she will be continually pursued by a supernatural force that can take any shape, and if it catches her she dies and begins to pursue the person who gave it to her. It’s a creepy analogy for the post-AIDS world that delivers shocks and scares at every turn.Tucker & Dale Vs. EvilLet’s close this off with a horror film that takes all of the “college student in the woods” tropes and turns them on their ear. Tucker and Dale are a pair of West Virginia hillbilies who are mistaken for serial killers by a bunch of city folk. A raucous and gory comedy of errors ensues, as the young people are murdered by their own stupidity and paranoia as Tucker and Dale valiantly try to save them. It’s insanely funny and surprisingly merciless in the way it treats its characters. There’s allegedly a sequel in development but who knows if we’ll ever see it.Removed From NeftlixSadly, movies don’t stay streaming forever, and every month the selection on Netflix changes. When a movie gets taken off of the service, we’ll put it down here and let you know where else you can get it.Beyond The Black RainbowIs it horror? Is it science fiction? Is it an art film? Beyond The Black Rainbow is all that and a bag of potato chips. The debut film from Panos Cosmatos is a trippy take on 80s classics like Altered States, featuring a mad doctor experimenting on a psychic girl in a bizarre prismatic prison. Don’t worry if you can’t quite make heads or tails of the plot – this one is a sensory experience more than anything else, a paean to the days when horror was truly outside the realm of human understanding. It’s super great.Buy on DVD or Blu-RayStream on Amazon VideoLet The Right One InOne of the coolest things about Netflix’s selection is that it’s truly international, and you’re lucky enough to be able to stream 2008’s brilliant Let The Right One In. Tomas Alfredson’s cold-weather vampire story is a masterpiece of suspense. Young Oskar is a bullied pre-teen who lives with his mother in the Stockholm suburbs, but when he meets a girl named Eli things start to get real weird. Let The Right One In touches on lots of vampire movie tropes – doomed romance, immortality – but does it in such a mysterious and left-handed way that it seems fresh and new.Buy on DVD or Blu-RayStream on Amazon VideoThe Cabin In The WoodsDrew Goddard’s 2012 horror comedy was a cult hit upon release, regarded by some as a Scream for a new generation of fans. The setup is as generic as it comes – a group of college students head off into the woods and run into unspeakable evil – but the twists this puppy throws at the unsuspecting viewer are outrageous. We don’t want to spoil the gimmick if you haven’t seen the flick, but be aware that nothing is as it seems, and if you feel like you’ve seen this story before, there’s a very good reason. The tons of sneaky references to other horror franchises make The Cabin In The Woods wicked fun to rewatch.Buy on DVD or Blu-RayStream on Amazon VideoThe ExorcistWe’re incredibly blessed to have one of the most seminal horror films of all time available for streaming. William Friedkin’s The Exorcist completely changed the landscape when it came out in 1973, elevating the genre to mass-market accessibility and proving that it could touch on current-day issues in a mature way. It was the first horror flick to garner a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars (even if it lost out to The Sting). If you haven’t seen it, it holds up amazingly well for being almost a half a century old – Linda Blair is a revelation as a young girl possessed by an ancient Assyro-Babylonian demon, and the role defined her entire career.Buy on DVD or Blu-RayStream on Amazon VideoRe-AnimatorFew writers have had the lasting impact on the genre as H.P. Lovecraft, and adaptations of his work have ranged from chilling to ridiculous. Stuart Gordon’s 1985 Re-Animator falls squarely on the humorous side of the line, but the gory black comedy was a cult hit on release and still holds up decades later. Dr. Herbert West is the archetypal mad scientist who pushes a little too hard on the barrier between life and death and pays dearly for it, and the effects by practical master Brian Yuzna are absolutely glorious.Buy on DVD or Blu-RayStream on Amazon VideoFrom Dusk ‘Til DawnRobert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino teamed up for the first time for this wildly funny, sleazy vampire movie. When a pair of bank robbers hole up at a Mexican strip club, they’re not ready to meet the creatures of the night that call the place home. Salma Hayek launched a thousand sexual awakenings as possessed peeler Satanico Pandemonium, and the film’s third act is a relentless barrage of gore, stunts and witty dialogue. Critics hated it at the time but it stands up well today. The movie inspired a TV series on Rodriguez’s El Rey network that’s also very much worth watching.Buy on DVD or Blu-RayStream on Amazon VideoThe Blair Witch ProjectIt’s crazy to think, but before The Blair Witch Project, horror movies were in a pretty serious rut. All it took was a clever low-budget filmmaker with a gimmick – found footage – and a trio of actors willing to play along and the genre was pretty much instantly revitalized. The 1999 flick had audiences fleeing theaters in terror, and even knowing that it was all faked doesn’t strip the movie of much of its potency. The erratic pacing and disturbingly banal “scares” – piles of sticks, a person facing a corner – unsettle even as you try to figure out what the hell is happening.Buy on DVD or Blu-RayStream on Amazon VideoThe HostGiant monster movies don’t typically cross the line into all-out horror, but Bong Joon-Ho’s 2006 entry The Host pulled it off to become one of the most successful South Korean movies of all time. When pollution in the Han River creates a murderous creature, it’s up to a family that runs a snack bar to get rid of it. With clever anti-government themes and remarkably effective low-budget effects, The Host delivers on a bunch of different levels. The performances are great and thankfully the unnecessary American remake seems to be dead in the water.Stream on Amazon VideoGremlinsJoe Dante’s brilliant 1984 movie created the template for dozens of knock-offs to come, fusing comedy and horror in a unique and brilliant way. When a young boy gets a strange furry pet for Christmas, he systematically ignores all three rules that come with it and is soon inundated by a gaggle of homicidal green jerks. It’s surprisingly violent in retrospect – especially the scene where one gets nuked in the microwave – but never stops being fun. We’d love to see this style of horror film come back in the modern age, with no CGI Gremlins. Puppets forever.Buy on DVD or Blu-RayStream on Amazon VideoThe DescentAre you afraid of the dark? Neil Marshall’s 2005 horror flick embraces that fear by plunging viewers deep into the earth with no way out. When a group of friends goes on a spelunking expedition, things go from bad to worse when a cave-in traps them below. The worse part? They’re not alone. Also down there is a society of sightless, pale humanoid creatures who are very hungry. What follows shouldn’t surprise any seasoned horror watcher, but it’s a hell of a ride. Claustrophobic, violent and packed with twists and turns, this one will keep you glued to the screen until the shocking climax.Buy on DVD or Blu-RayStream on Amazon VideoThe BabadookJennifer Kent’s 2014 debut kicked off a wave of imitators, but it still stands as a beautiful and subtle take on parental horror. When a young boy becomes obsessed with fighting an imaginary monster, his mother has to contend with the fact that the Babadook might be more real than she thought. This flick works because of the slow-burning suspense that it crams into every scene. Instead of jump scares and freakouts, The Babadook builds an atmosphere of impending doom that sucks you in and makes you dread the dark corners and quiet moments.Buy on DVD or Blu-RayStream on Amazon VideoIf Netflix isn’t doing to for you anymore try the 11 Niche Video Streaming Services You Should Subscribe To.

Simulation shows its possible to move H2OC60 using electrical charge

first_img Two years ago, Japanese researchers Kei Kurotobi and Yasujiro Murata figured out a way to imbed a water molecule in a 60-atom fullerene (buckeyball)—they slit it open, inserted a single water molecule, then sealed it back up again, effectively trapping the water molecule inside—they called it H2O@C60. In this new effort, the researchers created a computer simulation which they claim shows what would happen if such a molecule were placed inside a nanotube and subjected to an electrical charge. Their efforts show, they say, that it would cause the fullerene (and water molecule) to move, in this case through a channel.David Lindley, in an article for the American Physical Society site Physics, says that the simulation the two researchers created takes into account all of the known properties of H2O@C60 and notes that the simulation treats the molecule as a single entity.After embedding the water molecule inside the fullerene, the researchers simulated putting the new structure inside of a carbon nanotube, essentially creating a channel to allow for movement of the fullerene along with its water molecule cargo. They then applied an electrical charge parallel to the nanotube. Doing so, the researchers found, caused the fullerene to move within the channel (and the water molecule inside to spin), carrying its cargo with it. Normally, applying an electrical charge to water molecules does not cause them to move (because they are neutrally charged)—instead a thermal driven motion known as libration occurs.In the simulation however, embedding a water molecule in a fullerene allows it to be driven through a channel using electric current, opening up the possibility of creating fullerenes that carry other chemicals through nanotubes—a process that could prove useful for applications such as delivering therapeutic drugs to ailing body parts, for example.Interestingly, the researchers found that if the charge was increased to 0.065 volts per angstrom, the direction of movement in the channel was reversed, though they can’t explain why.

(Phys.org) —Researchers Baoxing Xu and Xi Chen, working at Columbia University, have created a computer simulation that shows it’s possible to manipulate the movement of a 60-atom fullerene, with a water molecule trapped inside of it, using an electrical charge. They describe their simulation and results in their paper published in Physical Review Letters. A water molecule bestows electric polarity on the fullerene sphere that surrounds it, allowing the structure to be guided by an electric field, even though it remains electrically neutral.

Rev. Lett. 110, 156103 (2013) prl.aps.org/abstract/PRL/v110/i15/e156103AbstractEncapsulating a single water molecule inside an endohedral fullerene provides an opportunity for manipulating the H2O@C60 through the encapsulated polar H2O molecule. Using molecular dynamic simulations, we propose a strategy of electrical-driven transport of H2O@C60 inside a channel, underpinned by the unique behavior of a water molecule free from a hydrogen-bonding environment. When an external electrical field is applied along the channel’s axial direction, steady-state transport of H2O@C60 can be reached. The transport direction and rate depend on the applied electrical intensity as well as the polar orientation of the encapsulated H2O molecule.

Now a yogurt without added sugar but naturally sweet

first_imgThe presence of added sugar in dairy products has always led the health conscious consumers to avoid them.But a team of Danish researchers has made it possible to manipulate the metabolic properties of yogurt-producing bacteria to sweeten the yogurt naturally, while reducing sugar in the final product. Also, using microbiological methods the researchers have almost eliminated lactose, so that those with lactose intolerance can enjoy the yogurt. “The goal was to engineer the yogurt bacteria not to consume glucose, a fermentation product that is a particularly sweet form of sugar,” said Eric Johansen, one of the researchers who is associate vice president at Chr. Hansen Holding A/S – a global bioscience company in Denmark. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The findings are detailed in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology. The team engineered the bacteria not to consume glucose, a particularly sweet product of yogurt’s fermentation.Yogurt contains live cultures of bacteria known as streptococcus thermophiles and the bulgaricus sub-species of Lactobacillus delbrueckii.When grown in milk, these two strains normally break down the lactose into two sugar components glucose and galactose, which is less sweet than glucose.Then, the bacterium consumes the glucose and makes more galactose. The microbial tweak eliminates lactose, so those intolerant to the milk sugar can eat the yogurt. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix“We wanted to change them so that they would eat the galactose and spit out the glucose,” said Johansen.The yogurt in the newly modified bacteria make has almost no lactose, very little galactose, and is high in glucose. This natural sugar makes it sweet, and when the yogurt was presented to a taste panel with varying amounts of sucrose added, the team found that they could maintain the panel’s desired sweetness with 20 per cent less added sucrose than usual.“We reasoned that since glucose is considerably sweeter than lactose or galactose, bacteria that release glucose into the product could allow for a reduction in added sugar while maintaining the desired sweetness in the yogurt,” Johansen concluded.last_img read more

Using Pidgin for multiple chat protocols simultaneously in GNULinux

first_imgUsing Pidgin for multiple chat protocols simultaneously in GNU/Linux by Mike Turcotte-McCusker on May 14, 2017 in Linux – 8 commentsPidgin is a wonderful application used for connecting to multiple chat protocols through a single application, making it much easier to chat to more people at once, and saving on system resources at the same time.I’m a multitasker, I always have multiple windows open and multiple things on the go simultaneously, but one thing I can’t stand is having to use multiple apps with similar purposes, separately, when I can find a way to link them all together.Pidgin satisfies this for me, and allows me to have my Skype, Facebook Messenger, and almost any other messaging related service all under all one handy little application.Note: Piding is a cross-platform application. It is available for Linux, but also for Windows.Installing PidginDepending on your distro of choice, you can install pidgin by using your GUI package management tool, or try the following commands:Ubuntu/Debian/Mint:sudo apt install pidginArch Linux/Manjaro:sudo pacman -S pidginIf you’re using a different distribution not listed, use your typical installation command when choosing to go the CLI route.Install the necessary plugins for Skype and Facebook MessengerThe next thing we need to do, is install the packages needed for Facebook Messenger, and Skype. They are purple-facebook and purple-skypeweb. However, these are not available in the official repositories for Ubuntu, and so we will use a PPA, which is a community made repository. Arch users have it much easier since both packages are available via pacman.For Arch users:sudo pacman -S purple-skypeweb purple-facebookFor Ubuntu users, we first need to add the PPA, and install the Facebook plugin:sudo sh -c “echo ‘deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/jgeboski/xUbuntu_$(lsb_release -rs)/ /’ >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jgeboski.list”cd /tmp && wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/jgeboski/xUbuntu_$(lsb_release -rs)/Release.keysudo apt-key add – < Release.keysudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get install purple-facebookNext, we add another PPA for the Skype plugin:sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8sudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get install purple-skypeweb pidgin-skypewebOnce everything is said and done, open Pidgin and add new accounts. When selecting the protocol, you want to select “Facebook” NOT “Facebook (xmpp)”, and you’ll want to use “Skype (HTTP).”Final ThoughtsPidgin also has the ability to connect to other protocols, such as but not limited to:AIMBattle.netBonjourGoogle-TalkHangoutsICQIRCSteamZephyrThere are multiple other plugins available for Pidgin across the net, so other chat programs you use may quite likely be able to be added as well.I personally only use Pidgin for Skype and Facebook, I prefer to use a command line IRC client connected to one of my VPS’ for my IRC use, that way even when my laptop is shut down, my IRC client is connected 24/7 remotely, and I can SSH into a my server, connect to a screen session I have with the IRC client, and snap into my IRC chat anytime I want.Something to note about Pidgin and Skype however, is that video and audio calls are not supported. If a friend of yours tries to call you, they will be notified you are unavailable, but you will not even see that they called you, so adding your account to Pidgin is only useful for text conversations.It can be rather helpful to have everything connected at once like this though, rather than having your web browser open for Facebook, Skype, and however many other chat programs included!Happy chatting!SummaryArticle NameUsing Pidgin for multiple chat protocols simultaneously in GNU/LinuxDescriptionMike walks you through the steps of installing the multi-chat protocol application Pidgin on GNU/Linux devices, and highlights how to add support for Skype and Facebook Messenger.Author Mike TurcottePublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Suspected drug traffickers turned over to Costa Rican authorities

first_imgNo related posts. Officials of the United States Coast Guard on Thursday docked in the Pacific port of Caldera to deliver suspected drug traffickers arrested for carrying cocaine aboard two boats with Costa Rican flags a couple weeks ago.The speedboat “El Anzuelo” was captured 150 miles north of Ecuador, with 506 kilos of cocaine on board. A Costa Rican man and two Mexican nationals were taken into custody.U.S. Coast Guard officials also detained the vessel “Capitán Alan” off the coast of Quepos, in the southern Pacific of Costa Rica, for transporting 501 kilos of cocaine. The arrested crew members were three Colombians and a Costa Rican.Costa Rica’s anti-drug commissioner Mauricio Boraschi said the arrests and drug seizures are “a direct result of a joint patrol agreement with the United States.”Officials from the Public Security Ministry, the Drug Control Police, the DEA, and two prosecutors received the suspects and confiscated drug samples that will be taken to the Forensic Science Laboratory, at the Judicial Investigation Police.So far this year police have seized five tons and 15 kilos of cocaine, including from a boat carrying 1.7 tons of cocaine nabbed Tuesday on the Caribbean beach of Manzanillo, after being pursued by a Costa Rican Coast Guard patrol.

Chanukah celebrated in Larnaca

first_imgCandles were lit on Wednesday evening by the Jewish community of Cyprus to celebrate the eight-day Jewish ‘festival of lights’, Chanukah.“Chanukah festivities celebrate the triumph of light over darkness and spirituality over materialism,” the Commissioner for Humanitarian Issues Fotis Fotiou said in his address to the crowd on Larnaca’s Phinikoudes celebrating of the Jewish community’s annual public Menorah Kindling ceremony.Representatives from the government, ambassadors, members of the EU and Israeli parliament attended the event that featured traditional Chanukah food and entertainment, as well as the lighting of the island’s largest Menorah, a nine-branched candelabrum which is lit every night of the ritual.“The universal message of Chanukah is that faith and persistence are powerful forces that can support us through all challenges,” Fotiou said, adding that “the smallest of lights can illuminate the darkest of corners, such as the greatest tragedy which is the Holocaust.”Fotiou expressed his gratitude to the Jewish community whose presence on the island dates back hundred of years, and which today constitutes an integral part of Cyprus life.“Our shared history, old and modern, contains much to demonstrate the deep relationship of friendship and cooperation between our peoples and countries,” Fotiou added, noting that this extends into the present, when “bilateral relations between Cyprus and Israel are at their highest point.”The festival this year began on December 2 and ends on the evening of December 10.You May LikeYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.
