Palestinian Official Says Morocco Wont Attend US Sponsored Conference in Bahrain

Rabat – Morocco will allegedly support Palestine’s  decision to boycott the US-sponsored economic conference, which will take place in Manama, Bahrain on June 25-26.Spokesperson of the Palestinian Government Ibrahim Melhem said that Morocco, Jordan and Egypt did not announce their intention toparticipate in the forum. Melhem’s remarks came after an anonymous senior US official announced that the three countries have confirmed their participation in the symposium.Read Also: Morocco to Attend Bahrain Conference on Middle East Peace“In contrast to what was reported, the Palestinian government took note that the brothers in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the Kingdom of Morocco, and the Arab Republic of Egypt did not announce their acceptance to take part in the Bahrain conference.” He also highlightedPalestine’s friendly diplomatic relations with the three countries. Melhem then called on all “brotherly and friendly countries” to withdraw their participation in another statement on Facebook.He said that the participation “would carry wrong messages about the unity of the Arab position” to oppose Trump’s Middle East Plan.Both Morocco and Jordan have long held unwavering support for the Palestinian cause.Sponsored by the US, the conference will serve as an opportunity to encourage investment in Palestine. “This workshop is a pivotal opportunity to convene government, civil society, and business leaders to share ideas, discuss strategies, and galvanize support for potential economic investments and initiatives that could be made possible by a peace agreement,” said the US and Bahrain in a joint statement on the conference.Rumors suggesting Morocco’s participation in the forum followed the visit of senior US  adviser Jared Kushner to Morocco on May 28, when he was received by King Mohammed VI.Kushner’s visit, according to the Moroccan government, sought to discuss the diplomatic relations between Rabat and Washington as well as recent developments in the Middle East. Morocco’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, however, denied that Kushner unveiled the content of the US Middle East Plan also known as the Deal of the Century, which aims to broker  peace between Palestine and Israel.“Morocco does not know yet of the content of any peace plan and will express its position when it will be informed about the details of the initiative,” Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita said last weekend.Several countries have already confirmed their participation in the conference, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar,  and the UAE. read more

UConn And Notre Dame Could Renew The Best Rivalry In Womens Basketball

Maryland and South Carolina have really good women’s basketball teams — two of the four best in the country. But Connecticut and Notre Dame, their respective Final Four opponents on Sunday in Tampa, are a cut above. They’re ranked No. 1 and 2 in the country by the AP, the coaches and the tournament selection committee. They’re the favorites to reach Tuesday’s final in our March Madness predictions and in Vegas. They played each other in last year’s final. And, best of all, they have a rich history — one that isn’t as one-sided as UConn’s recent dominance suggests.Notre Dame has dealt UConn seven of its 18 losses since the start of 2007. In other words, 39 percent of the time UConn has lost in the last eight-plus years, it’s been against Notre Dame.If UConn and Notre Dame play each other in the final, it’d be their 21st meeting since the start of 2007 — the latest ESPN Stats & Info data available. They played 12 regular-season games (11 back when both were in the Big East), plus three Big East conference finals and one semifinal. They’ve also met four times in the last eight Final Fours, with two wins apiece. A Tuesday meeting would be the rubber match.Maryland and South Carolina have been good, but they simply haven’t been as dominant. UConn has won 94.6 percent of its games since the start of 2007, by far the best in the sport. Notre Dame ranks fifth, at 84.1 percent. (Stanford, Green Bay and Baylor are second, third and fourth.) Maryland is 11th, at 80.6 percent. And South Carolina is 53rd, at 64.3 percent. But South Carolina’s and Maryland’s relative inconsistency, coupled with UConn’s and Notre Dame’s late, lamented conference rivalry, means they have a much thinner record against the rest of the Final Four.So let’s look more closely at the UConn-Notre Dame rivalry. UConn has won 13 of their last 20 matchups, or 65 percent. That’s as close as UConn gets these days to a balanced rivalry — it’s the lowest winning percentage UConn has against any team it has played more than five times since the start of 2007. Every team but one that has played UConn at least once in that time has a losing record against the Huskies. (The one exception is longtime rival Tennessee, which won their only recent meeting.) More than 90 percent of UConn opponents haven’t beaten the Huskies even once, including four teams that have played them at least 10 times.Also notable, for a team that has regularly all but clinched its games by halftime, UConn has beaten Notre Dame by an average of less than eight points per game in their 20 meetings. That’s the closest average margin for any UConn opponent that has played the Huskies more than five times since 2007.UConn, meanwhile, is responsible for a big chunk of Notre Dame’s losses since the start of 2007: 13 of 49, or 27 percent. UConn is the only team Notre Dame has played in more than six games in that period that has a winning record against the Fighting Irish.Notre Dame’s recent wins against UConn all came in an astonishingly short spell: The Fighting Irish won seven of eight meetings over a stretch that started with Notre Dame’s upset of UConn in the 2011 Final Four. Notre Dame star Jewell Loyd, a junior and the team’s leading scorer, is the only current player who was a major contributor for the Fighting Irish when they last beat UConn.It’s not the most heated or longstanding rivalry. Before the teams played in December — in a game UConn won by 18 points — espnW’s Graham Hays pointed out that it doesn’t have the rich character and tension of UConn-Tennessee. Notre Dame head coach Muffet McGraw, asked before the game about her relationship with Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma, made it sound like the two were friendly acquaintances in the corporate world. “Geno and I are terrific,” McGraw said. “We saw each other this summer. We’ve got no issues, no problems. Just business as usual for both of us.”If it’s business as usual for both teams on Sunday, we’ll see them renew their acquaintance in the final on Tuesday in Tampa, in the latest edition of the closest thing to a rivalry that Auriemma’s dominant UConn team has these days. read more

Spend a day with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 101 in just 12

first_imgIf you are an Android fan and you are tired of hearing all about the iPad 2, then this is the video for you. YouTube user AndroidHD posted a video spanning an entire day spent with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the oversized (well, Xoom-sized) version of the Galaxy Tab.The video, which looks to have been shot in Paris, runs through a number of usage scenarios for the tablet. The GTab expertly shows images, checks email, navigates to locations, plays Angry Birds, displays eBooks, records HD video, shows HD movies, and all sorts of good stuff. Talk about a busy day…The whole thing feels a bit like a commercial, as it runs down the features and shows the tablet constantly in action. And despite all the activity and movement there are no issues with connectivity or battery life so take it as a commercial, not an extended trial. That said we do get a good feeling for the tablet and what it can do, plus we get it see it in action with pretty heavy duty tasks like recording HD video (seems a bit choppy) and displaying Google Streetview.What the video doesn’t get into is comparing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to the original (7-inch) model. The 10-inch model looks great and I’m quite happy to see that Samsung decided to make it an option, but couldn’t the 7-incher have done all this? Sure the maps wouldn’t have been as large and video playback less impressive, but it would be that much more portable. Of course the GTab 10.1 gets that dual-core processor and Honeycomb, but for most things the small model would have been fine.AndroidHD via Electric Piglast_img read more

Why this tech professional left a multinational to become a Mayo hypnotherapist

first_img Short URL AFTER WORKING IN the tech industry for over a decade, Paul Cunnane decided to pack it in and move from Dublin to Mayo to work as a hypnotherapist.It was a big shift, to put it mildly, but he was fed up. He was one of those unlucky souls working in an IT company around the time of the dot-com crash.Like a lot of companies around the turn of the millennium, Mattel, the multinational toymaker best known for producing Barbie dolls and Hot Wheels cars, decided it wanted to get into software.In 1998 it acquired The Learning Company and created Mattel Interactive, which mostly focused on producing video games based on the company’s toys.The agreement was worth billions and would later be singled out as one of the worst deals of the era as Mattel Interactive hemorrhaged money.Cunnane was leading a small software team in Dublin, but he was also one of the senior managers for the European arm of Mattel Interactive when the tech bubble burst.Mattel decided it wanted to sell the division, and that meant that Cunnane had to help the other senior managers take an axe to staff.“All the senior managers had to get together in the company and start drawing lines through people’s names,” he says.I had got to know a lot of the people, so it wasn’t an abstract exercise. I was laying off people who I had fond friendships with, I was making the decision of who wouldn’t have a job next week.DisillusionedCunnane isn’t sure exactly how many people were employed across Mattel Interactive Europe at the time, but it was “in the scale of hundreds” and about a third of those people went.“It took a lot of fun out of what had been a fun place to work,” he says.“I worked there for about six months after that, I was just working out my notice. They may have preferred if I stayed, but I wasn’t feeling it anymore.“I was disillusioned enough at this stage that I wanted something radically different. When I was in Dublin I did a part-time course in hypnotherapy out of curiosity and decided to see if I could make something out of that.” Paul Cunnane with former taoiseach Enda Kenny Source: Keith Heneghan/PhocusHis then wife was from Mayo, so in 2001 the pair moved west. Things went OK initially, with Cunnane working to help people with challenges like quitting smoking.However, he quickly ran into a problem. Moving from Dublin to a rural part of Mayo, he was appalled to find that he couldn’t even get a basic broadband connection where he lived.“I had a personal battle with Eircom, I kept calling them. I remember I was at a party with some Eircom person and he snapped and said, ‘Will you stop asking about broadband! You will never get broadband where you live.’That was a red rag to a bull.”Cunnane formed a co-op with a few other locals who all chipped in and built a wireless network together so the area could get connected.Westnet formedBuoyed, he tried to get other communities to do the same thing but found that most didn’t have the expertise or the time to set up broadband themselves.He and five others pooled their money together and in 2005 set up Westnet, a firm which was focused on providing broadband connections to people across Mayo. The company connected customers through DSL – broadband delivered via existing phone lines.“At the time there were maybe four towns in Mayo that had broadband, so we had to put radio links all the way to Galway city,” Cunnane says.“Customers come to us and we install a connection to their house. A lot of the builds initially were done with the help of community leaders, but in the last eight or nine years it has been on a normal commercial basis.” Feb 7th 2018, 6:25 PM Cunnane with the Westnet team Source: Keith Heneghan/PhocusThe firm grew slowly and now employs just over a dozen people. It turned over €2 million last year and recorded a profit of just over €80,000 in the 12 months to the end of 2016.While connecting homes was a big part of its business in the early years, the company has changed tack with the onset of fibre broadband.Building fibre connections is expensive. While Westnet will do it sometimes for large customers, such as for a big hotel, now the firm operates more as a retail broadband provider.Like Sky or Vodafone, it will often use lines built by Eir to connect to customers homes and sell them access to the internet.“When Eir provide the fibre, anyone can provide a service with that network. Lots of people are connected with Eir, but some use different providers,” he says.We probably have around 4,000 customers. Our business is heavily skewed towards residential, but we do have a decent business side of things.”No-frillsThe company has customers across Mayo and also covers parts of neighbouring countries such as Roscommon and Galway.“The strategy for us is to stay focused on the western region, not necessarily just in Mayo. We can offer a more local service. Our call centre and engineers are all local, it’s more hands-on.”Its status as a local operator is one of the main aspects that Westnet pushes to try to get a leg up on its competitors, while the other is its no-frills offering.“Everyone has the same input costs, so there is always a question of how you differentiate yourself,” Cunnane says.Eir, Vodafone, etc, tend to be about pushing bundles, for example broadband with phones and TV.“There is a young adult demographic that has never had a landline and can’t understand why you would want to have one. We just go in and say to people that we will give you broadband, and this is what it costs. Source: Youtube“The contracts tend to be for 12 months, and there is no install charge and no data cap. Depending on the type of connection, people can have it from as little as €40 per month. It’s simple.”ConsolidationWestnet doesn’t have a grand plan for national domination, or at least not one that Cunnane is sharing.He says that the company has had year-on-year growth every year since its inception and just wants to keep growing.If we keep that curve going up for as long as we can, that will make us very happy,” he says.Nevertheless, Cunnane does see consolidation on the horizon: in his opinion, there are too many regional broadband providers that each have their own little corner of the Irish market.“There have been some small ISPs (internet service providers) that we have bought out, but as you get bigger in scale every business is someone’s baby,” he says.“People may not be as pragmatic as they otherwise might be, it would give me pause.”So would Cunnane consider giving up Westnet? Sell up and make a long-awaited return to hypnotherapy?“I have to accept that I’m an IT guy,” he laughs. “In terms of where that will be, I don’t know. The future as far as I can see involves Westnet. In terms of after that I don’t know, but at the moment there is plenty for me to keep focused on.”This article is part of our weekly series examining the nuts and bolts of businesses.

A look back at the Limerick bacon factories that fed Ireland for

first_imgA look back at the Limerick bacon factories that fed Ireland for 180 years A lot of the factory workers couldn’t afford expensive cuts of meat, so the offal, spare ribs and pigs’ heads would go to the poorer people of Limerick. 35 Comments Matterson’s Bacon Factory taken in the late 1950s. The men are (l-t-r) Mick Hanly, uncle of the famous singer of the same name, and the Morning Ireland broadcaster David Hanly, Connie Considine and Ger ‘Logger’ McMahon.O’MARA’S, MATTERSON’S, SHAW’S and Denny’s were the names that made Limerick famous for its bacon produce for 180 years – earning it the nickname ‘Pigstown’.The reputation of Limerick ham, the food culture that arose from a plentiful supply of cheap products, the story of the pork butchers, the pig buyers, the sounds of the city with factory horns signalling the call to work – all of these still resonate in Limerick in the memories of its citizens and former workers.A definitive account of this industry that operated at the centre of the city, supplied by the farms of rural county Limerick for over 180 years will be documented in a new book called Pigtown – A History of Limerick’s Bacon Industry.Ruth Guiry was commissioned to undertake the research under the guidance of Dr Maura Cronin from Mary Immaculate College and one of the 27 people she interviewed to understand the role the bacon factories had in Limerick was Joe Hayes. O’Mara’s bacon factory, Roches Street, Limerick. Source: Courtesy of Tony PunchJoe Hayes started working in a bacon factory in 1962, aged 16 years old. He worked with his dad, and later on with his two sons until the factory closed in 1986.“When the factory closed, a group of us got our own little unit, we rented it, and produced our own sausages, puddings and things.”It was a huge part of Limerick’s social scene: four generations of Joe’s family worked in bacon factories, with uncles, sisters, brothers, sons and cousins all working in the factory at one time or another:“If one factory was caic, you wouldn’t have a problem getting a job in the other one. Feb 11th 2017, 7:45 AM People still eat sausages and bacon – where do they think they come from?They started at 8am and finished at 5.30 working a 40 hour week when the factory closed in 1986, but despite their work, the people who worked in factories often couldn’t afford to buy the expensive cuts of meat.

Source: Limerick ArchivesAfter the expensive cuts were prepared, the offal, the spare ribs, the pigs’ heads would go to the poorer people. “The blood was used to make the pudding, the packet, the tripe was made off the belly. Everything was used off the pig, and it fed Limerick city.”When it all stoppedIt was a way of life down in Limerick, so when the factories closed, thousands of people working in a bacon factories were out of jobs, and thousands of families were affected.But it wasn’t the competition from big supermarkets that did it – it was free trade. The Danes, the French, the Dutch all started exporting their products here, and Limerick factories didn’t have the money to export to compete. Source: National Library of Ireland“Michael O’Mara’s funeral was this week – he was the last of the bacon factory managers.” says Joe. “After the Limerick factory closed, he tried doing different bits and pieces, but nothing worked out for him, so he worked in a factory for a couple of years before retiring.”Joe Hayes himself is retired now, and when he buys his meat he gets it in a supermarket.“Meat is meat,” he says.”But if I see the tricolour flag, I’ll still buy it even if it’s dearer.”Pigtown – A History of Limerick’s Bacon Industry by Ruth Guiry is co-edited by Dr Maura Cronin and Jacqui Hayes.Read: ‘It’s sad that it’s gone, but wonderful that it existed’: After 80 years, greengrocer Roy Fox shuts its stalls Leaving Mattersons at dinner hour.

Son design en pierres précieuses est aussi étincelant que ses composants sont obsolètes.La marque russe Gresso lance son téléphone appelé Grand Premiere. Le modèle est clairement inaccessible pour le commun des mortels, le constructeur ayant habillé son modèle d’une robe en or 18 carats. Pour encore plus de ravissement des yeux pour les plus “bling-bling”, cet écrin a été agrémenté de saphir noir sur l’écran et l’arrière du téléphone, rappelle CNet.À lire aussiNomophobie : traitement, symptômes, qu’est-ce que c’est ?Par contre, la marque si volubile sur l’apparence n’a rien dévoilé des spécifications du téléphone. Tout juste sait-on que le système d’exploitation de ce bijou de technologie au sens propre sera un S40. Oui, celui-là même qui équipait votre vieux Nokia d’il y a cinq ans. Même s’il tente de se rapprocher sur l’esthétique d’un smartphone, le Grand Premiere n’est qu’un téléphone tout à fait classique, et déjà dépassé par de nombreux smartphones Android vendus 1 euro en boutiques.Mais pour les magnats du pétrole, désireux d’épater leurs amis oligarques, il leur faudra débourser 50.000 dollars pour obtenir ce téléphone. Seulement 30 modèles limités et numérotés sortiront des usines de Gresso et trouveront grâce aux yeux des amateurs d’opulence. Les autres resteront avec leurs smartphones en plastique, certes, mais bien plus fonctionnels et modernes.Le 22 décembre 2011 à 20:50 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Le père de la physique moderne, obsédé par l’idée que la Terre tourne autour du Soleil, était un personnage complexe, Maxisciences vous révèle ses secrets !Biographie :Naissance : Né à Pise en 1564Mort : Décès à Arcetri, le 8 janvier 1642En 1587, Galilée rencontre Christopher Clavius, un célèbre professeur qui enseigne au Collège Romain, père du calendrier Grégorien. En 1592, il enseigne les mathématiques à Pardoue et rencontre Marina Gamba, une femme qu’il n’épouse pas mais avec qui il aura trois enfants. En 1609, un de ses élèves lui confirme l’existence de la lunette créée par un artisan hollandais.  Cette version s’apparente plus au jouet qu’à l’instrument de mesure et agrandit de manière grossière.  Il décide d’en créer une copie et l’améliore. C’est un véritable événement dans la vie de Galilée qui de physicien devient astronome. Seulement, l’homme ne maîtrise pas vraiment les subtilités de la théorie optique, sur les 60 lunettes qu’il a construit, quelques-unes était réellement bonnes.  Galilée commence à regarder les étoiles, et déduit qu’il y a des montagnes sur la Lune. Le scientifique découvre ensuite que la Voie Lactée est en fait composée de nombreuses étoiles, impossible à voir sans lunette. Il repère aussi quatre petites étoiles situées à côté de Jupiter. Il les nomme étoiles Médicées pour rendre honneur à ses protecteurs, les Médicis. Mais une autre de ses découvertes, les taches solaires, va le mettre dans l’embarras avec l’église. Avec cette découverte, il affirme que le Soleil n’est pas parfait. Le cardinal Robert Bellarmin interdit à Galilée de prêcher le copernicanisme.

Sex Toy Stripped Of CES 2019 Award Because Vaginas

first_img Sex Toy Maker Dame Sues MTA Over Sexist Ad PoliciesCES Reinstates Innovation Award for High-Tech Sex Toy Sex tech made great strides at the Consumer Electronics Show … until it didn’t.Pleasure product start-up Lora DiCarlo was selected as a CES 2019 Innovation Awards honoree in the robotics and drone category for its Osé “personal massager.”It uses micro-robotics to provide “blended orgasms”—a combination of the two different ways women can climax.“We’re doing something that has never been done before,” company founder and CEO Lora Haddock wrote in a statement. “We’re making the world’s first hands-free device for the holy grail of orgasms.”Vetted by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA, which owns and produces the annual CES event) and a panel of independent judges, Osé joined a handful of other award-winning inventions.“This feather in our collective cap made years of research and engineering even more worthwhile and further validated our vision for creating innovative, inclusive products that change lives,” Haddock said.The almost exclusively female team rejoiced, celebrating their win and looking toward a future of envelope-pushing ideas. For a little while.A month later, Lora DiCarlo was “unexpectedly informed” that CTA was rescinding the award—as well as the firm’s invitation to CES 2019. So I worked on this really amazing product and we won a CES Innovation Award in the robotics category, but then they took it away#CESGenderBiashttps://t.co/d8OrMpR36W— Dr. Ada-Rhodes Short (@DinoMechanic) January 8, 2019Administrators initially cited a certain rule, saying entries deemed to be “immoral, obscene, indecent, profane, or not keeping with” the organization’s image will be disqualified.As Haddock pointed out, not only does this imply that women’s sexual wellness products are somehow indecent or salacious, but it begs the question of how Osé made it past the first round of inspections by CTA staff.(Which has, in the past, authorized the launch of a sex doll for men, among other sex toys, and welcomes a recurring VR porn exhibit that lets folks view erotica while consumers wander by.) Boycott @CES. Bad gender bias from the parent CTA organization. #CESGenderBias https://t.co/h9cIlzh6UB— C.

I mean, it’s not surprising. But still, one would think innovation would be progressive. What’s even worse is that CES awarded and rescinded an innovation award from a woman who earned it. #CESGenderBias— Alex Chase (@AswiftChase) January 8, 2019 I tell you what’s immoral, techbros ….your collective inability to treat women centred design as equal to the needs and achievement of da menz. #CESGenderBias #CES2019InnovationAwards https://t.co/vvLDoHNEeJ— Dr Mel Thomson (@DrMel_T) January 8, 2019CTA President and CEO Gary Shapiro and Executive Vice President Karen Chupka reportedly followed up with a memo stating that Lora DiCarlo’s product—designed with university robotics engineering labs and a team of engineers—was “actually ineligible” for the robotics and drone category.“You never know how technology can be used,” Haddock said. “The future of healthcare might well be in the patent for a sex toy. But if CES and CTA are so intent on keeping women and sex tech out, we’ll never find out.”In an open letter to Shapiro, et al., Haddock encouraged followers to share her words on social media using the hashtag #CESGenderBias.last_img read more

Panetta AlQaida defeat in reach

first_imgKABUL, Afghanistan — Al-Qaida’s defeat is “within reach,” U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Saturday during his first visit to Afghanistan as Pentagon chief. He said eliminating as few as 10 of the group’s top figures could cripple its ability to strike the West.Panetta’s assessment could stoke the debate in Washington over how soon to pull the U.S. military from the land where Osama bin Laden’s network launched the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, against the United States. Some ask why an extended military commitment is necessary if al-Qaida’s end is in sight.Although not as specific as Panetta about what it will take to break al-Qaida, the top American commander in Afghanistan agreed the group is on the ropes.“There has been enormous damage done to al-Qaida” beyond bin Laden’s killing May 2 in Pakistan. Army Gen. David Petraeus said. “That has very significantly disrupted their efforts and it does hold the prospect of a strategic defeat, if you will, a strategic dismantling, of al-Qaida.”Panetta said he hoped his shift from CIA director to defense secretary, combined with a change of U.S. civilian and military leaders in Kabul, will put the troubled U.S.-Afghan relationship “back on the right track.”last_img read more

Brad Pitt responds to dating Jennifer Aniston after Angelina Jolie

first_imgBrad Pitt and Jennifer AnistonGetty ImagesBrad Pitt attended Jennifer Aniston’s 50th birthday party and made everyone think that after parting ways with Angelina Jolie, the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star is back with his first wife. Brad Pitt was recently asked to comment on his alleged relationship with Jennifer Aniston and his cryptic response has left everyone to ask more questions.Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have called off their marriage 14 years ago, but there are hundreds and thousands of fans who are still rooting for them to get back together. When Angelina Jolie announced her separation from Brad Pitt in September 2016, and Jennifer Aniston announced her divorce with Justin Theroux in February 2017, fans assumed that Brad and Jennifer will reconcile their differences.Earlier this year, Jennifer Aniston celebrated her 50th birthday with her close family and friends. To grace the event, Brad Pitt decided to attend it. Following which, a lot has been said and published about their alleged romance. There were bogus claims that Brad and Jennifer are going to get married in Paris or Brad bought a $56 million mansion house as a gift for Jennifer. However, for the very first time, Brad has directly responded to these rumors.As per Entertainment Tonight, the 55-year-old Brad Pitt was spotted walking to his car in Los Angeles and was caught a little off guard when a paparazzi asked him to comment on his alleged relationship with Jennifer Aniston. The cameraman inquired, “I gotta ask you, everyone wants to understand, are you and Jen getting back?” Jennifer Aniston forgives Brad Pitt for treating her badly and leaving her for Angelina JolieGetty ImagesBrad Pitt casually laughed off the question and responded simply, “Oh, my God.” He then said “All right, have a good one,” to the cameraman before driving off in his SUV car.Brad Pitt’s response has made many to question what exactly is going on between these two. The actor did laugh at the question but does it mean that he is actually back together with Jennifer Aniston but is not disclosing anything since his divorce is not yet finalized with Angelina Jolie?Well, their representatives have stated in the past that there is nothing going on between Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. Brad did attend Jen’s 50th birthday party but it was a one-time thing and does not indicate that they are going to get back together in a romantic way.last_img read more

Al Qaeda warns Myanmar of punishment over Rohingya crisis

first_imgA group of Rohingya refugee people walk in the water after crossing the Bangladesh-Myanmar border in Teknaf. Photo: ReutersAl Qaeda militants have called for support for Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslims, who are facing a security crackdown that has sent about 400,000 of them fleeing to Bangladesh, warning that Myanmar would face “punishment” for its “crimes”.The exodus of Muslim refugees from Buddhist-majority Myanmar was sparked by a fierce security force response to a series of Rohingya militant attacks on police and army posts in the country’s west on 25 August.The Islamist group behind the 11 September 2001, attacks on the Untied States issued a statement urging Muslims around the world to support their fellow Muslims in Myanmar with aid, weapons and “military support”.”The savage treatment meted out to our Muslim brothers … shall not pass without punishment,” al Qaeda said in a statement, according to the SITE monitoring group.”The government of Myanmar shall be made to taste what our Muslim brothers have tasted.”Myanmar says its security forces are engaged in a legitimate campaign against “terrorists”, whom it blames for attacks on the police and army, and on civilians.The government has warned of bomb attacks in cities, and al Qaeda’s call to arms is likely to compound those concerns.”We call upon all mujahid brothers in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and the Philippines to set out for Burma to help their Muslim brothers, and to make the necessary preparations – training and the like – to resist this oppression,” the group said.last_img read more

Study analyzes role of mobile software in the future Internet

first_img Explore further One method for advancing network services in the future Internet consists of combining mobile agents with an evolutionary framework. In these methods, the mobile agents must decide for themselves the best course of action to take in order to handle users’ requests most effectively, with the results of the decision impacting their survival. Currently, these methods are far from being practically implemented since they lack a basic theory of the migration behaviors of mobile agents on a large scale. In a new study, Yongsheng Ding and Lei Gao from Donghua University in Shanghai, China, have performed a macrodynamics analysis of mobile agents’ migration behaviors, which could provide a fundamental basis for the development of a more ubiquitous future Internet. Their study will appear in a future issue of IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics – Part A: Systems and Humans.“We think the work is significant in being the first to conduct the macroanalysis of large-scale mobile agent migrations,” Gao told PhysOrg.com. “The study not only favors the design of composite services in a type of self-organizing network architecture, but also benefits the future deployment of an Internet-scale mobile agent system that holds myriads, hosts, and migratory movements of mobile agents.”Previous studies have predicted that the future Internet will have vast numbers of these mobile agents that can effectively handle users’ requests. As Gao explains, mobile agents could have significant advantages compared with stationary agents, especially for mobile devices.“Due to the resource limitation of mobile devices, agents are sent to some nodes/devices with rich resources for doing some tasks that have high requirements for resources, and then they bring the results back,” Gao explained. “Mobile agents can automatically suspend their executions on one host and migrate to another to resume their computations without tedious and slow network communication.”As the researchers explain in their study, mobile agents can be considered in terms of an evolutionary framework: When a mobile agent performs a service, it gains a reward. The more rewards a mobile agent has, the longer it survives, while agents that run out of rewards die. So mobile agents evolve and become more effective at handling users’ requests. They have several abilities to maximize their usefulness, such as adapting to changing environments, manipulating objects, and learning from past experiences. They also have the ability to replicate themselves individually or reproduce “children agents” with other mobile agents.

(PhysOrg.com) — Although it’s difficult to predict what the future Internet will look like, it’s probably safe to say that certain trends we’ve seen during the past decade will continue. This means that the Internet will become further integrated into our daily lives, becoming more ubiquitous, available, autonomous, and mobile. The engineers who are guiding the Internet in this direction are doing so by developing mobile agents, which are pieces of software that can autonomously migrate from one computer to another and interact with each other. In the researchers’ model, mobile agents that perform the same or similar services (e.g., performing a credit card transaction or providing GPS data) would form a community, or “niche.” In these niches, mobile agents can learn from their surrounding environment, improve their performance, and gain more rewards. Depending on user demand, these niches can grow or shrink. The researchers’ model shows that the number of mobile agents in all niches eventually stabilizes, so that the average growth rate of the total mobile agent population reaches zero. By understanding the macroproperties that emerge from the behaviors of a large number of autonomous mobile agents, the researchers hope that they can design improved network services with more advanced features. This kind of modeling is still in its infancy, and the researchers hope to continue improving these models, and eventually apply them in the future Internet.“We believe the future Internet will be hundreds of times faster than the current one,” Gao said. “We envision the future Internet as a global integrated platform for communication, education, entertainment, business, and other human activities. Network services are required to be highly available, ubiquitous, highly secure, self-managing, and adaptable to dynamic network environments and user requirements. The characteristics of the future Internet we envision resemble the self-organizing and the self-healing properties of natural ecosystems that have evolved over billions of years. The harmonious properties of natural ecosystems have shown us a promising way to build the future integrated platform.”last_img read more
