Piyush Goyal retains railways likely to focus on safety nonfare revenue

first_imgNew Delhi: Piyush Goyal, reassigned the charge of the crucial railway ministry, is likely to focus on safety, generation of non-fare revenue, track renewal, modernisation and increase in the production of state-of-the-art coaches in his second stint at the helm of the national transporter, official sources said Friday.Goyal, having achieved the lowest accident figures in his previous tenure, had repeatedly said that his goal was to reach the zero accident standard. Also Read – Pak activated 20 terror camps & 20 launch pads along LoCHis biggest challenge would be to maintain the record by timely track maintenance and renewal. His aim would be to ensure that railway factories ramp up production of state-of-the-art coaches for trains such as Vande Bharat Express so that more such services can be introduced. Goyal, who had pushed for generating resources through non-fare revenue, had hit a stonewall during his last stint, but the minister is likely to drive this idea as he believes that this will bring in additional funds to boost the beleaguered railways’ finances. Known to work with a team of around 20 trusted advisors, mostly graduates of top business schools, Goyal keeps track of every operational detail through spreadsheets and is usually quick with facts and figures. Not shy of keeping bureaucrats in line, Goyal burns the midnight oil reading reports and documents related to different aspects of his ministry. Active on Twitter, Goyal even responds to passengers’ queries. In his first stint as railway minister, Goyal, a Rajya Sabha member, achieved several firsts — it was during his tenure the government announced its first bullet train which would run from Mumbai to Ahmedabad in Gujarat.last_img read more

Canadian privacy watchdogs find major shortcomings in Facebook probe

first_imgOTTAWA — The federal and B.C. privacy watchdogs say Facebook’s ineffective safeguards allowed unauthorized access to the information of millions of the social-media giant’s users — including data later used for political purposes.The joint report of the two privacy commissioners finds major shortcomings in Facebook’s practices, highlighting a need for legislative reform to protect Canadians.Here is the full statement from the federal and BC privacy commissioners. First line “Facebook committed serious contraventions of Canadian privacy laws”1 of 2… #cdnpoli— Cormac Mac Sweeney (@cmaconthehill) April 25, 2019The complaint that prompted the probe followed reports that Facebook had let an outside organization use an app to access users’ personal information, and that some of the data was then shared with others, including the firm Cambridge Analytica, which was involved in U.S. political campaigns.The app, at one point known as “This is Your Digital Life,” encouraged users to complete a personality quiz.It collected much more information about users who installed the app as well as data about their Facebook friends.The report released today says about 300,000 Facebook users worldwide added the app, leading to the potential disclosure of the personal information of approximately 87 million others, including more than 600,000 Canadians.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Call of Duty Black Ops First Strike official trailer and details

first_imgActivision have released the official trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike (included below) which features 5 new multiplayer maps. It comes out first on Xbox Live on February 1 (for 1,200 Microsoft Points – $15) but there is no news on the PC or PS3 versions as of yet.The first four maps will be joined by a bonus zombie map called “Ascension” which will be staged in an abandoned Soviet Cosmodrome complex, but other than the title and the brief glimpse of this in action, we have no other details on the map at the moment.AdChoices广告However, the first map is called “Discovery” and this is based on the Antarctic mission from the full game – the one when you take control of Reznov – so expect lots of camouflage sniping going on.The next map is entitled “Kowloon” and battles will take place on the roof tops in Kowloon (Hong Kong). In true Battlefield style you have the option to get from A to B using zip lines.The third map is called “Berlin Wall” and as the name suggests you will fight at the famous border crossing where the Russians and Americans held an alliance during the Cold War. You will need to watch for snipers that could be perched on balconies or behind the large windows of various buildings dotted around the map. Expect frenetic, close-quarters combat in this map.Finally, the last map is called “Stadium”, and this takes place in a hockey arena. This is a mid-sized map designed specifically for close-quarter battles so snipers will have to put down their long range weapons and get stuck into the action.Read more at Call of Dutylast_img read more

Une tornade solaire cinq fois plus importante que la Terre

first_imgUne tornade solaire cinq fois plus importante que la TerrePour la première fois une tempête solaire représentant cinq fois la taille de la Terre a été filmée. Cette tornade a été capturée en image par l’Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) de la sonde SDO (Solar Dynamics Observatory).Grâce à l’Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) de la sonde SDO qui permet de prendre des photos de l’atmosphère solaire sur 10 longueurs d’ondes toutes les 10 secondes, une énorme tornade solaire atteignant cinq fois la taille de la Terre a été filmée pour la première fois à la surface du soleil. Pour les scientifiques de l’Université d’Aberystwyth, “c’est peut-être la première fois qu’une telle énorme tornade solaire est filmée par une caméra”. Et la séquence a de quoi impressionner.À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembre Capturées le 25 septembre 2011, les images seront diffusées aujourd’hui lors d’un meeting d’astronomie à Manchester. Elles montrent les mouvements des gaz surchauffés qui peuvent atteindre des températures comprises entre 50.000 et 2 millions de °C. Sur les clichés, on constate que la base de la tornade apparait comme une spirale ascendante qui jaillit dans la haute atmosphère solaire à environ 200.000 kilomètres sur une période d’au moins trois heures. Son déplacement est ainsi au moins deux fois supérieur à celui des tornades terrestres les plus rapides qui soient.Mais contrairement aux tornades qui ont lieu sur Terre et qui sont générées pas des phénomènes de cisaillement des vents, les tornades de plasma du soleil, elles, sont façonnées par un puissant champ magnétique. Celui-ci s’accompagne parfois d’une éjection de masse coronale, des particules accélérées projetées à très grande vitesse dans l’espace depuis la couronne solaire. Des phénomènes qui ne sont pas rares en ce moment alors que l’activité de notre Soleil s’est intensifiée ces derniers mois.

Kyoto Boots up a Predictive AntiCrime Computer

first_imgWho needs precogs floating in a giant bathtub to predict where and when crimes are going to occur? Not the police department in Kyoto, Japan, that’s for sure.They’ve started utilizing what they call the Yosokugata Hanzai Bogyo (Predictive Crime Defense) System. Unlike Philip K. Dick’s sci-fi creation, this system is 100% real and far less fantastical in terms of how it works.The System isn’t actually telling police who’s going to commit a crime and where or when they’ll do it a la Minority Report. It’s sort of like how Major League Baseball teams analyze spray charts for hitters to set up their defensive alignments on the diamond.The System is basically a powerful computer that runs calculations based on historical crime data for the area. It looks for trends in that data, issues a report, and police can then adjust their patrols so that officers are in the right places at the right times.According to Rocket News 24, the System is currently tuned for a limited number of offenses such as assaults and vehicle thefts. The next step in its deployment is to expand the coverage area. They want to take it nationwide as soon as possible.There are concerns that the System may lead to a rise in false arrests, but that’ll but up to Japan’s men and women in blue. They’ll need to remind themselves that the Predictive Crime Defense System isn’t really predicting crimes. It’s just helping make sure that patrols are set up for maximum crime fighting efficiency.last_img read more

WSU Vancouver kicks off fall semester

first_imgo WSUV’s College of Liberal Arts adds two degree programs this fall: bachelors of arts in history and sociology. Final approval from the WSU Board of Regents is pending, but courses are available.o Karen Schmaling is the new WSUV vice chancellor for academic affairs. Her predecessor, Bruce Romanish, will serve as administrative assistant for one year, then resume teaching.o A popular WSUV program has rebranded: It’s now the Creative Media and Digital Culture program.WSUV revives tradition with free concert FridayCougars are on the prowl again, on a Salmon Creek hilltop.The laptop-toting, textbook-buying, parking-spot-chasing kind — as Washington State University Vancouver students kicked off their 2010 fall semester Monday.It was the 15th opening day at the ever-expanding campus that launched in 1996, which more and more resembles a full-scale, real-deal four-year university.Head count is expected to reach about 3,100 individual students this semester, the total of all undergraduate and graduate students, surpassing 3,000 for the first time.Full-time equivalent enrollment is less certain, but officials expect a record 2,300 FTEs when registration numbers lock in early next month.What’s apparent is that students are taking more credits, whether undergraduate or graduate courses, said a WSUV official.“Students might be taking more credits, just to maximize what they’re paying for,” said Nancy Youlden, vice chancellor for student affairs.Once past 10 credits per semester, students get a healthy break on tuition, she noted. She said many tack on an extra course or more past the full-time mark (12 credits for undergrads, 10 credits for graduate students) “to get more bang for their buck.”To help students balance a heavier class load, WSUV offers a newly remodeled and expanded fitness center this year. By Labor Day, the facility beneath the campus library will open for group exercise (such as spinning classes) and feature new, added equipment for students and employees, Youlden said.last_img read more

Merediths Magnolia Journal Ups the Ante Again Industry Notes

first_img “Offensive and hurtful” op-ed leads to editor’s resignation. “I can’t get over how in my piece I called out appropriation and settler expectations in CanLit publications and performances (including [The Writers Union of Canada] calling their community a ‘tribe’ on their website) and yet they still published this,” wrote Joshua Whitehead. Social Catalyst, Yorke tells Folio:, allows advertisers to draw on both SourceMedia’s first-party data as well as targeting solutions offered by Facebook and Twitter (and soon LinkedIn’s), making it easier to reach specific audience segments with relevant content in their social media feeds, even after they leave SourceMedia’s own properties, such as  Canadian novelist Hal Niedzviecki has been prompted to resign from his post as editor of Write, a magazine serving Canada’s union of — you guessed it, writers — after penning a column that purportedly encouraged the practice of cultural appropriation — that is, the adoption of elements of one culture by another, often in a way that is damaging or insensitive to the former. Checking in with SourceMedia. The quarterly magazine starring Joanna and Chip Gaines (of HGTV’s Fixer Upper) debuted last October with an inititial distribution of 400,000 copies, before being upped to 700,000 copies for the second issue, which dropped in February. Now, Meredith is set to once again up that figure, printing over one-million copies of the third issue, including 700,000 for paying subscribers alone, the company announced this week. The news comes in the wake of a relatively decent third-quarter earnings report for Meredith’s national media group (a.k.a. it’s magazine business). Advertising revenues dipped one-percent year-over-year in the first three months of 2017, to $124.6 million, and circulation revenue remained essentially flat at $96.3 million, but Meredith was quick to point out that its titles now account for 12.1 percent of the total advertising spend in the national print magazine business. Meanwhile, digital ad revenues are up 27 percent, and now make up more than a quarter (28 percent) of the national media group’s total revenue. “I don’t believe in cultural appropriation. In my opinion, anyone, anywhere, should be encouraged to imagine other peoples, other cultures, other identities,” Niedzviecki wrote. “I’d go so far as to say there should even be an award for doing so — the Appropriation Prize for best book by an author who writes about people who aren’t even remotely like her or him.” From the job board… Newly appointed CMO Matthew Yorke’s quest to shepherd SourceMedia from B2B publisher to a full-fledged provider of marketing technology solutions took another step forward this week with the launch of Social Catalyst, a new product aimed at extending clients’ ad campaigns beyond SourceMedia’s portfolio of websites and onto its social media channels. “I regret that my words failed to acknowledge the profound and lasting adverse impact of cultural appropriation on Indigenous peoples,” he added. “I began the piece glibly, which resulted in some readers misunderstanding my intentions.” Subscriptions to the title cost $20 for four annual issues, and The Magnolia Journal carries a newsstand cover price of $7.99, but it’s not just readers who appear interested. Meredith boasts a handful of marquee brands as advertisers in the upcoming issue, including Samsung, Chevy, and wristwatch manufacturer Citizen, which the company says is producing custom creative for its ads in the magazine.center_img Vox Media seeks a full-stack software engineer for its Washington, D.C. office, the type of person who can diagnose and address common security vulnerabilities in web apps and can “create an engaging culture of cyber security as part of our Systems Engineering team.” Familiarity with Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform a plus. For his part, Niedzviecki defended the column in a Facebook post, saying the column was meant solely in the context of writers writing, and that “writers should never be dissuaded from writing in a variety of viewpoints and voices.” At a time when direct-from-the-consumer revenue seems to be the name of the game in print media, Meredith’s The Magnolia Journal appears to have found a willing audience. With Time Inc. president Rich Battista announcing — after merger talks between the two giants deteriorated late last month — his company’s intent to “aggressively reduce our cost base and rationalize our portfolio,” Meredith’s top brass is likely watching that situation unfold with great interest. America can’t get enough of Chip and Joanna. See this and other job openings at It’s just the latest addition to the client-facing arsenal for SourceMedia, which in March revealed a suite of new data targeting solutions aimed at account-based marketing, audience extension and segmentation, and programmatic-direct. Other upcoming initiatives, Yorke says, include diving into video (particularly on Facebook), a new native advertising product, and a premium version of the company’s SourceSelect account-based marketing solution. “It’s not just scale for the sake of scale,” Yorke tells Folio:. “It’s scale aimed at driving efficiency.” Appearing in an issue ostensibly devoted to pushing back against the marginalization of Canada’s indigenous culture, the column was an example of astoundingly poor optics at best, and sparked both an official apology from the union and a wave of online outrage, including from several of the indiginous writers who contributed to the same issue.

Together for India

first_imgIndia is a land of many languages, cultures and traditions. To know the country in all its diversities one has to delve deep into them, live and learn all it has to offer. Keeping this in mind, the Lalit Kala Akademi announces a series of events celebrating the linguistic diversity of India and they will be focusing on mapping Indian culture, arts and languages from 5 to 7 September. The whole event is being called Bhasha Prabha and will include book launches, exhibitions, talks and musical performances. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’‘If you wish to know something about India, you must empty your mind of all preconceived notions of what you have heard or read…India is different, and exasperating as it must seem, would like to remain so! You will not find any of your formal labels useful. India is many and it is one. It has incredible diversity yet it is bound in a unity that stretches way back into unwritten history,’ former Indian prime minister Indira Gandhi had said.Chandresh Kumar Katoch will be addressing the Bhasha Prabha jointly organised by Lalit Kala Akademi (National Academy of Art) Ministry of Culture, Government of India and Bhasha Research and Publication Centre in collaboration with Sahitya Akademi, Sangeet Natak Akademi, Indira Gandhi National Center for Arts, Indira Gandhi National Open University, Orient Blackswan, Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya, Dhrupad Kendra,  Ustad Alauddin Khan Academy and Nav Siddharth Art Group.

6 common challenges faced by Android App developers

first_imgThe primary target for businesses while working on mobile apps is the Android platform, thanks to the massive market share the mobile operating system holds. It’s popularity can be attributed to the fact that it is open source and is regular updated with new enhancements and features. Android devices generally tend to differ based on the mobile hardware features even when powered by the same version of the Android OS. This is why it is essential that when developing apps for Android, developers create mobile apps capable of targeting a diverse range of mobile devices running on different versions of Android OS. During the various stages of planning, developing and testing, developers need to focus comprehensively on the apps functionality, accessibility, usability, performance, and security so that users can be engaged despite their choice of device. Also, they also need to look for ways to make the apps deliver a more personalized user experience across the various devices an operating system. Furthermore, developers need to understand and find solutions to the common challenges involved in android app development. Common Challenges Android App Developers Face 1. Hardware Features The Android OS is unlike any other mobile operating system. For one thing, it is an open source system. Alphabet gives manufacturers the leeway to customize the operating system to their specific needs. Also, there are no regulations on the devices being released by the different manufacturers. As a result, you can find various Android devices with different hardware features running on the same Android version. Two smartphones running on Android latest ver, for example, may have different screen resolutions, camera, screen size, and other hardware structures. During android app development, developers need to account for all of this to ensure the application delivers a personalized experience to each user. 2. Lack of Uniform User Interface Design Rules Since Google is yet to release any standard UI (user interface) design rules or process for mobile app developers, most developers don’t follow any standard UI development rules or procedure. Because developers are creating custom UI interfaces in their preferred way, a lot of apps tend to function or look different across different devices. This diversity and incompatibility of the UI usually affects the user experience that the Android app directly delivers. Smart developers prefer to go for a responsive layout that’ll keep the UI consistent across different devices. Moreover, developers need to test the UI of the app extensively by combining emulators and real mobile devices. Designing a UI that makes the app deliver the same user experience across varying Android devices is one of the more daunting challenges developers face. 3. API Incompatibility A lot of developers make use of third-party APIs to enhance the functionality and interoperability of a mobile device. Unfortunately, not all third-party APIs available for Android app development are of high quality.. Some APIs were created for a particular Android version and will not work on devices running on a different version of the operating system. Developers usually have to come up with ways to make a single API work on all Android versions, a task they often find to be very challenging. 4. Security Flaws As previously mentioned, Android is an open source software, and because of that, manufacturers find it easy to customize Android to their desired specifications. However, this openness and the massive market size makes Android a frequent target for security attacks. There have been several instances where the security of millions of Android mobile devices have been affected by security flaws and bugs like mRST, Stagefright, FakeID, ‘Certifi-gate,’ TowelRoot and Installer Hijacking. Developers need to include robust security features in their applications and utilize the latest encryption mechanisms to keep user information secure and out of the hands of hackers. 5. Search Engine Visibility The latest data from Statista shows that Google Play Store contains a higher number of mobile apps. Additionally, a large number of Android users prefer free apps than paid apps which is why developers need to promote their mobile applications to increase their download numbers and employ application monetization options. The best way to promote the app to reach their target audience is to use comprehensive digital marketing strategies. Most developers make use of digital marketing professionals to promote their apps aggressively. 6. Patent Issues Google doesn’t implement any guidelines for the evaluation of the quality of new apps that are getting submitted to the Play Store. This lack of a quality assessment guideline causes a lot of patent-related issues for developers. Some developers, to avoid patent issues, have to modify and redesign their apps in the future. As per my personal experience, I have tried to cover general challenges faced by Android app developers. I’m sure keeping wary of these challenges would help developers to build successful apps in the most hassle free way.

South America huge opportunity for Aus McEvoy

first_imgBeing the middle-man could pay off for Aus tourism. Image: Being the middle-man could pay off for Australian tourism. Sitting between South America and Asia could finally place Australia in a position to serve as a stopover destination to anywhere in the world apart from Antarctica, according to Tourism Australia managing director Andrew McEvoy.Seeing ‘huge’ potential in the market, Mr McEvoy explained South American travellers see Australia as a gateway into Asia, which could play a major role in Australia’s bid to attract more holiday-makers from the region. Speaking at the PATA Hub City Forum in Sydney, the tourism leader added Aerolineas Argentinas flights out of Sydney and Qantas’ services from Santiago are also contributing to ‘exponential’ growth from the market.“There’s new opportunity that’s yet untapped,” he said.Meanwhile, Tourism Australia’s marketing in Asia has already paid off, with Mr McEvoy noting growth from Indonesia and a potential for 20 percent per annum growth from India and China over the next five to eight years.“I also think the Philippines, Vietnam and other markets like Russia will be much more important for Australia,” he added.Gathering at the PATA Hub City Forum in Sydney this week, tourism leaders argued the need for a second Sydney Airport.Click here for more information. ……center_img Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.Jlast_img read more

New York – Reported by Elite Traveler the private

first_imgNew York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineW Hotels Worldwide today announced plans to reinvigorate more than 10 of its hotel properties across North America within the next 18 months. The renovations, which vary by hotel, are slated to include cutting-edge updates to public spaces, new signature bar and restaurant concepts, and stylish revamps to guestrooms, enhancing the W portfolio overall for both its jet set travelers and locals alike. The ambitious renovation schedule is focused on many of the W brand’s early hotels in key markets such as New York City, Seattle, Chicago, New Orleans, and Los Angeles, among others.“When W Hotels launched in 1998, it quickly redefined the space and continued to transform the traditional hotel experience as we entered new markets across North America,” said Carlos Becil, Vice President of Brand Management, Starwood’s Luxury and Design Brands, North America division. “As W evolves from a U.S. phenomenon into a global design powerhouse, we are committed to fueling the innovation within our existing portfolio to create a consistent, cutting-edge experience for our guests.”Charged with further connecting hotel design to local contextual insights, W Hotels has engaged some of the industry’s brightest rising visionaries to collaborate with the W brand’s award-winning design team to transform various spaces within each of the hotels. In particular, many of the renovations focus on the Living Room (W’s take on the traditional hotel lobby), which is a key element to the W experience, offering a place for guests to mix and mingle over cocktails and pulsating music. Upgrades to these public areas, as well as the debut of new bar and restaurant concepts, allow for W to enhance the overall guest experience while also drawing in locals.Starwood and its ownership groups, including Host Hotels & Resorts, Rockpoint Group and Estein & Associates USA, have committed more than $100 million to the renovations, which include the following W Hotels:W New York – Union Square – Downtown meets uptown in the sharp new design aesthetic created by d-ash and Wilson Associates for W Union Square, which just underwent a renovation of all 270 guestrooms and corridors. Olives, the hotel’s popular Todd English restaurant, as well as its famed nightlife venue, Lilium (formerly Underbar), have also been revamped. The hotel’s Living Room is set to be updated by Krause + Sawyer early next year.W Seattle – Inspired by the feeling of a wharf, intermixed with a central “point of impact” that radiates outward, W Seattle recently unveiled a completely redesigned Living Room and bar area. Designed by Skylab Architecture, the hotel has also debuted the W brand’s signature restaurant concept, Trace, which focuses on conscious cuisine. The hotel has engaged Therese Virserius Design to renovate all of its meeting rooms later this year.W San Francisco – Earlier this year, the hotel unveiled an expanded Living Room and destination bar as well as the launch of Trace. Designed by noted San Francisco-based Stanley Saitowitz/Natoma Architects Inc., the new design drew inspiration from the fog and city grid of San Francisco.W New York – The W brand’s flagship property, W New York, opened in 1998 and has remained a hub of New York culture and nightlife ever since. The property’s state-of-the-art meeting rooms and Great Room received a facelift by d-ash earlier this year. These updates are to be followed by the unveiling of a Krause + Sawyer-designed Living Room bar in 2013.W Chicago – Lakeshore – Envisioned by Josh Held Design, the renovations are a nod to the ingenuity of Chicago and the tension between city and nature. Each of the 520 guestrooms will be renovated and characterized by faceted patterns, a bridge of light and energetic colors. The hotel’s public spaces, including the Living Room, Wave restaurant, Whiskey Sky (rooftop bar), the Welcome Desk and the hotel’s prime meeting space, Altitude (with 360 degree views of the city), will also be transformed to recall the strength, invention and industrialism of Chicago, for a final reveal in 2013.W New Orleans – French Quarter – The award-winning, intimate hotel is currently undergoing complete renovations of all guestrooms by nemaworkshop, who incorporated both jazz and tarot motifs in the design. Renovations on the first floor were revealed this past month, with the project due to be complete by mid-Summer. Led by Ti Martin of the Commander’s Palace Family of Restaurants, SoBou, the hotel’s new destination restaurant, will present an artful cocktail program paired with a next generation Creole dining experience.W San Diego – W San Diego has re-energized its Rooftop Bar with a bright, bold bonfire theme – including a playful sculpture of stacked beach chairs – as envisioned by Mr. Important Design of Oakland, California. Inspiration ignites in the newly imagined Living Room where vibrant colors collide and heat up the lounge atmosphere. In addition, the hotel’s meeting rooms have been expanded and renovated as the hotel debuts its new restaurant, kelvin – which features touches of Latin soul – this month.W Los Angeles – Westwood – This beloved celebrity hideaway, featuring all suite rooms, has also engaged Mr. Important Design to expand and re-define its Living Room, bar and public spaces. The renovations will result in a more cohesive union of the Living Room and bar, engaging secret spaces, additional high-tech meeting room options, and a dramatic entrance moment with a signature chandelier inspired by city of LA. The hotel’s signature restaurant and popular Backyard will also be reimagined in 2013.W Dallas – With the design narrative of “Big/Bold,” Mars Culture is redesigning the guestrooms with traditional Texas accents that marry the juxtaposition of masculine and the belle. Accents include lasso sculptures, rhinestone hardware, armadillo skin embellishments, and more.W New York – Times Square – W Times Square gives guests and locals a place to experience the electric energy of Times Square from a voyeuristic, tucked away space. The WOW and EWOW suites (W’s take on the Presidential Suite), perched high above it all, will each undergo full-scale renovations.W Montreal – Later this year, the hotel will begin renovating all of its guest rooms with a colorful new palette that also pays tribute to the historical architecture of Montreal.www.whotels.comlast_img read more
