Dog owners more likely to meet weekly exercise goals

first_imgDog owners are estimated to be four times more likely than their peers to meet recommended physical activity guidelines, according to a study that highlights the role that dogs may have in helping to keep humans healthy. It is recommended that adults should do at least 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity per week. Dog ownership is expected to encourage physical activity, but it has been unclear whether this effect occurs in all members of a dog-owning household, or whether dog walking replaces other forms of exercise. Dr Carri Westgarth from University of Liverpool in the UK assessed the self-reported physical activity of 385 households. Dog owners walk more frequently and for longer periods than non-dog owners, according to the study published in the journal Scientific Reports. Moreover, dog walking in this population is undertaken in addition to, and not instead of, other physical activities. The effects of dog ownership on physical activity levels in the UK reported in the present study are greater than those reported in previous studies of North American and Australian populations. The study suggests that these discrepancies may be due to social and climatic differences.last_img read more

Mohammed V Stadium Goes Mad as Raja Beats Vita Club 30

Rabat- It was a sobering night in Casablanca, one of those moments when a game of football can bring together people of different walks of life, making social class irrelevant as the crowd shouts like one to elicit a winning display from their boys. Since 2003, the year it claimed its last African cup and when the name Raja was associated with class and mastery in African football, continental victory has eluded the green boys of Casablanca. Despite being good at times and maintaining a steady reputation as one of the top two Moroccan football teams, Raja has been dealt continuous blows, ranging from internal crises to poor output in continental tournaments that mattered.But Sunday was different. It had to be. Receiving DR Congo’s Vita Club, Coach Garrido’s boys knew that having the match in Casablanca was an opportunity to deny the slightest upper hand to a Congolese team known for being deadly on home ground. Rajaoui’s boys’ mission on Sunday, their coach later revealed to the press as he indulged in his team’s victory, was to claim the three points needed to have some breathable atmosphere before Sunday’s return leg in Kinshasa.In football, as in life, there are moments when victory is not just about putting in the required performance to claim the points you need to get ahead, or win, in the tournament or competition. There are defining moments when winning is all that matters, regardless of the rewards that that might bring. Or perhaps the reward is implicit in the very act of winning. It might be for pride. Or the fear of disappointing those who have faith in you, and stood by you even in the most ominous of occasions. Or the urge to rewrite history, or be part of it. Or the urgency to do what is necessary to end a chewing crisis. It is difficult to pin down which of these points really counted in Raja’s riotous victory against their Congolese counterparts. Let’s just say it was a combination of all those factors, each playing a sizable part in the ultimate composition of the story.But there was, too,  something else at play on Sunday: the disarming determination of Raja’s fans. In the most incipient moments of the game, when victory seemed impossible, distant,  it was the football-crazy 50,000 green and red onlookers that crafted the narrative of hope the players lacked–and needed.Soufiane Rahimi, the 22-year-old whose brace proved crucial in opening the floodgates that ultimately sunk the traditionally compact Vita defense, spoke of family and pride and identity. For the young forward, games like  Sunday’s go beyond the realm of football. In matches like that, he opined, you think of your family and everyone else who made it possible for you to be where you are. You don’t play just because it is your own passion or your profession. Deep down, you play for the joy and happiness of the thousands who left their activities to come motivate you. And when you do win, he explained, his face still beaming with the afterglow of an exceptional night, the feeling is a mixture of emotion and affiliation.Read Also: Morocco, Rwanda Bid to Organize 2025 UCI Road World Championships“I am over the moon…. We stayed focused and I’m really happy to have been part of all this, to have helped my teammates land the victory.”But the young Moroccan was aware that the second leg might—will surely—bring a tougher challenge against an opponent used to home victory. His thrill for playing a key role  in his team’s dominant display should not be reason for complacency, he elaborated. When Raja travels to DR Congo this weekend to take on Vita on Sunday, the goal will be to pressure their opponents as relentlessly as possible. Like on Sunday.Rahimi’s caution was well placed, considering that the game on Sunday was a deadlock until minute 46. For 45 minutes during the first half, the Congolese were defensively impeccable, foiling Raja’s endless attempts to find a crack in their tactical disposition. At which point, as the Congolese gave no impression of surrendering to Raja’s ferocious attacking vitality, the public, the twelfth man, chimed in. Riotous, shouting chants that brought vigor and accuracy and courage and rigor to a game that seemed to be marching toward a lifeless draw, the crowd rekindled the players’ spirit. Raja’s boys, cheered up by a demanding public of nearly 50,000 football-mad, picked up accuracy and organization in the second half. From then on, as Raja now played to meet the demands of a fan base that has stood by them through trials and errors, loyal to the point of unreasonable fanaticism—the pleonasm is warranted in this case—things started to go from bad to worse for the Congolese. Down 1-0 at the 47th minute, 2-0 at the 61th minute, Vita players felt visibly powerless before the strength that a supportive crowd can prove. The third goal was merely a matter of time now. Vita looked besieged, beleaguered, and recognizably desperate. Few teams can resist the disarming energy of a fan base as besotted as Raja’s.And when that third goal came, at the 66th minute, time seemed to have stopped at the Mohammed V stadium. Nothing else existed. Nothing else could be heard. Nothing else mattered, except for the phenomenal return to continental glory. The stadium, covered in green and red, erupted in excited chants as an enamored rajaoui public celebrated the kind of victory that had eluded them for 15 years. Mohamed Oulhaj, the former Raja captain who is now in his tenth season with the Casablanca-based team, said that Raja’s Sunday’s victory should resonate with all Moroccans. Raja, Oulhaj explained, played for the pride of Moroccan football. After all the fuss that accompanied Morocco’s victory at the 2018 CHAN and Wydad’s triumph at the 2017-2018 African Champions League, it is hard to argue against Oulhaj’s point. read more

UN envoy for Middle East peace process holds talks in Jordan

14 October 2008The United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process (UNSCO) has held talks with top officials in Jordan on the latest developments in the Israel-Palestinian conflict, especially the ongoing efforts to negotiate a two-State solution. Robert Serry returned today to Jerusalem after the talks in Jordan, where he met with King Abdullah II, Prime Minister Nader Al-Dhahabi and Foreign Minister Salaheddin Al-Bashir, according to a statement released by UNSCO.During the talks, Mr. Serry voiced Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s appreciation of Jordan’s support for efforts to negotiate a two-State solution and build the institutions of a Palestinian State, the statement noted.“Mr. Serry stressed the importance of further action on the ground to enable Palestinian institutional and economic development and to freeze all settlement activity, including in East Jerusalem.”The Special Coordinator welcomed Jordan’s backing of current efforts in Cairo aimed at reunifying Gaza and the West Bank within the framework of the legitimate Palestinian Authority.He also voiced the UN’s continued support for the Arab Peace Initiative and a comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace based on Security Council resolutions and international law. read more

Rwandan rebel leader wanted for alleged crimes in DR Congo sent to

Callixte Mbarushimana, a Rwandan rebel leader accused of committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), was surrendered and transferred today to the International Criminal Court (ICC), a move welcomed by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Mr. Mbarushimana is the Executive Secretary of the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR), the most recent incarnation of Rwandan rebel groups established by Rwandan Hutus responsible for the 1994 genocide of Tutsis and Hutu moderates in Rwanda.Arrested in France last October, the rebel leader is alleged to be criminally responsible for 11 counts of crimes against humanity and war crimes in the eastern Congolese provinces of North and South Kivu, including murder, torture, rape, attacks against civilians, destruction of property, inhuman treatment and persecution. His arrest was the result of almost two years of investigations by France, Germany, DRC, Rwanda and the ICC, into the activities of the FDLR. “It’s a crucial day,” ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo told a news conference in New York, noting the impact of this latest development on DRC, and particularly on the eastern provinces of North and South Kivu, where the FDLR were involved in “horrific crimes.”Mr. Ban welcomed today’s surrender of Mr. Mbarushimana to the ICC in The Hague by French judicial authorities, as well as the steps taken by the German judiciary to prosecute and try the President and Vice-President of the FDLR, who are also accused of having committed serious international crimes.  “This cooperative burden-sharing in prosecuting individuals for serious international crimes will greatly advance the fight against impunity,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson said in a statement.“Legal action against FDLR leaders also reinforces efforts to demobilize and repatriate FDLR fighters, which would significantly contribute to stabilizing the eastern DRC,” the statement added.Mr. Mbarushimana’s case is the fourth on atrocities in the DRC before the ICC, the world’s first permanent court set up to try people accused of the most serious international offences, such as genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.“We hope this will send a clear signal to the FDLR members that they have to stop,” said Mr. Moreno-Ocampo, adding that the case against Mr. Mbarushimana is not the last against the rebel group. “We are planning to present new cases against other leaders of the FDLR in the Kivus.”Also welcoming today’s transfer was Margot Wallström, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict, who has repeatedly stressed the need to bring the perpetrators of rape in eastern DRC to justice. “This is a very important signal to all perpetrators in the DRC and beyond, that crimes of sexual violence are not tolerated and that the international community is fully committed to bringing alleged offenders to justice,” she said in a statement.“We now need to use all the resources at our disposal to apprehend every individual and commander allegedly involved in orchestrating the mass rapes which occurred in Walikale, Fizi and elsewhere in eastern DRC,” she added. 25 January 2011Callixte Mbarushimana, a Rwandan rebel leader accused of committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), was surrendered and transferred today to the International Criminal Court (ICC), a move welcomed by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. read more

Annan pleased at agreement on DR of Congo warns against continued fighting

“Mr. Annan commended the Congolese parties for the spirit of cooperation and compromise they showed in the interest of peace and stability in their country,” spokesman Fred Eckhard said, referring to the agreement reached yesterday in Pretoria, South Africa, on outstanding concerns, as well as military and security issues.”He encourages the parties to cooperate fully with the efforts of Facilitator, Sir Ketumile Masire, to convene the formal session of the inter-Congolese dialogue as soon as possible in order to ratify the agreement and establish the transitional institutions, including the Government of national unity, without further delay,” the spokesman said.The Secretary-General expressed his appreciation to the Government of South Africa for the critical role it played in cooperation with his Special Envoy, Mustapha Niasse, to help the parties reach agreement on the transitional arrangements. Mr Annan also “commended the efforts of his Special Envoy and his team for helping steer the negotiations to a successful conclusion,” the spokesman said.The United Nations, particularly the UN Organization Mission in the DRC (MONUC), stands ready to continue to work closely with the Congolese parties in implementing the all-inclusive power-sharing agreement signed last December, Mr. Eckhard added.At the same time, the spokesman said the Secretary-General is “deeply concerned” by the heavy fighting over the control of Bunia which took place recently and the threat it poses to the civilian populations, who have already paid an unacceptably high price in the many years of the conflict. “It is extremely disquieting that the fighting could result in a new round of inter-ethnic violence and massacres,” Mr. Eckhard said.The Secretary-General strongly urged all the parties to cease hostilities immediately and stop any acts of violence against civilians and humanitarian personnel, the spokesman said. “The belligerents should be reminded that the pursuit of the military option and human rights violations on any level are unacceptable.” read more

UN human rights chief urges Syrian rebels to end abuses after gruesome

“The video that has just emerged from Syria, apparently showing a rebel leader cutting out and biting the heart of a dead soldier, depicts a truly atrocious act,” UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said in comments from Geneva, noting that it is not yet possible to fully authenticate the clip. “Mutilating or desecrating corpses during a conflict is a war crime,” Ms. Pillay stressed. “I urge the armed opposition groups in Syria to do everything in their power to halt such gross crimes.” The High Commissioner urged an investigation of the incident, along with other alleged very serious violations by opposition fighters, including acts of torture and a succession of apparent summary executions and extra-judicial killings. “I have repeatedly called for the case of Syria to be referred by the Security Council to the International Criminal Court, so that legal proceedings can begin against people believed to be responsible for serious international crimes, including war crimes and crimes against humanity, irrespective of whether they are on the side of the Government or are in opposition to it.”Since 2011, fighting between the Government and opposition forces seeking to oust President Bashar Al-Assad has killed more than 70,000 people, and left 6.8 million in need. read more

The US and Mexico Meet Again In The CONCACAF Womens World Cup

Just two minutes into the CONCACAF Women’s World Cup Qualifiers semifinal game in 2010, a free-kick from distance was flicked behind the U.S. back line, and a Mexican player running forward slotted it into the net. The U.S. looked stunned. Mexico scored again in the 27th minute and would go on to defeat the U.S. 2-1 — the only time it has managed to do so in the two teams’ 31 matchups — nearly eliminating one of the world’s best teams from the 2011 Women’s World Cup. (The U.S. was forced to play a two-games series against Italy to qualify for the World Cup, where it eventually finished second to Japan on penalty kicks.)On Friday night, the two teams will meet again in the CONCACAF Qualifiers semifinal, this time on U.S. soil. Despite handedly beating Mexico in two friendlies last month, 8-0 and 4-0, that 2010 semifinal game serves as a reminder for the U.S.: World Cup hopes can fade in a flash — even for a powerhouse team — with one bad game.We’ve updated our projections, and the U.S. now has a 95 percent chance of beating Mexico and advancing to the finals. That number makes it seem like Friday’s matchup will be lopsided, and it may be. But if Mexico sits in and defends as anticipated, the Americans may find it difficult to score and could be forced into overtime or penalty-kicks.Mexico, however, has not looked as strong at this year’s CONCACAF Qualifiers compared to 2010’s, losing to Costa Rica in group play 1-0. It has only a 4 percent chance of winning the tournament, but a 74 percent chance of placing third — enough to qualify for next summer’s World Cup.Below are the updated expected-win probabilities for the remaining CONCACAF tournament teams:The other semifinal matchup Friday night, between Costa Rica and Trinidad and Tobago, is evenly matched. Costa Rica is a slight favorite, with a 57 percent chance of beating Trinidad and facing the Americans in the final. The two teams have drawn two out of their five matchups. Costa Rica has beaten Trinidad twice, and Trinidad has beaten Costa Rica once. The last time they met, however, in December 2012, Trinidad crushed Costa Rica 4-0 (how seriously the teams took this game is unclear though, as it wasn’t recorded as an official qualifying or friendly match).The winners of the two semifinal games will play in the championship Sunday, with their World Cup berths already secured. The more interesting match may be the third-place game (also Sunday), when the winner will secure the last reserved CONCACAF spot at the World Cup. The fourth-place team, however, is not automatically eliminated and will play Ecuador in a two-game series for another World Cup berth. read more

UK Police investigate Nick Griffin tweets about gay couple in BB case

first_imgWe are appalled to see Ireland being turned into a Third World Islamic slum even more rapidly than Great Britain, and we urge the peoples of the island of Ireland to bury the old sectarian divisions, to recognise the existence, culture and value of both native traditions, and to work together to reverse the tidal wave of immigration that, unchecked, will make them all foreigners in their own land. CAMBRIDGESHIRE POLICE HAVE launched an investigation into alleged comments made by the British National Party (BNP) leader Nick Griffin concerning a gay couple the centre of a landmark legal case.The MEP is alleged to have tweeted the address of Brampton couple Michael Black and John Morgan and called for a demonstration outside their home.Black and Morgan had gained media attention for bringing a legal case against a B&B owner who had refused to allow them to stay in a double room together in 2010.The couple sought damages against Susanne Wilkinson, owner of the Swiss Bed and Breakfast in Berkshire, after she refused to allow them to rent the double room they had booked – and left a deposit for – because of her religious beliefs. It was claimed that Wilkinson had treated the men “less favourably than she would treat unmarried heterosexual couples in the same circumstances”.A court awarded the couple £1,800 each for “injury to feelings” but accepted that Wilkinson has also stopped unmarried heterosexual couples sharing a bed in her establishment.Alleged tweets Police are now investigating alleged tweets posted on Nick Griffin’s account (@nickgriffinmep) concerning the case.One of the alleged tweets reportedly stated:So Messrs Black & Morgan, at [the couple’s home address]. A British Justice team will come up to Huntington & give you a… …bit of drama by way of reminding you that an English couple’s home is their castle. Say No to heterophobia!Another tweet allegedly read:We’ll hold demo… for rights of all home owners, gays included, to rent or not rent rooms to whomsoever they wish.Following this, Griffin’s account was briefly suspended before being reinstated without the tweets in question.A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said they had received “a number of calls” in relation to the tweets and would look into the allegations, according to the BBC. Police officers will also be visiting Black and Morgan as part of their inquiries.‘Fenian bastards’Meanwhile, a statement from Griffin’s Constituency Office has been issued to explain his use of the phrase “fenian bastards” on Twitter.Griffin said he meant no offence to Catholics in general or the Catholic religion in using the controversial term, and insisted that the BNP was “most definitely not anti-Catholic or anti-Irish”.The statement read: “We are the only party speaking up in defence of traditional Christian values and recognise that the Catholic Church has been more faithful to those values than the Church of England.”It continued:While we are staunch advocates of the Union and the right of Ulster’s loyalists to maintain their unity with the rest of the United Kingdom and to celebrate their vibrant culture and their Protestant Faith, we are most definitely not anti-Irish. Working class Irish communities in England have been among the biggest victims of mass Third world immigration designed to lower wages and remake our society on specifically anti-Christian lines.center_img Unlike the anti-Irish hypocrites of Sinn Fein, our position is both principled and logical.

Outstanding Greek Australians honoured

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram At least seven Greek Australians will have the pleasure of putting AO, AM or OAM after their names, having been honoured in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List this year. Following on from the Australia Day awards, the awards aim to highlight excellence in humanitarian work or community work, and excellence in industry. This Monday, former Federal Liberal Party parliamentarian, Petro Georgiou was awarded with the Officer of the Order of Australia award (AO), an award only 28 people received. Mr Georgiou was honoured for ‘distinguished service to the Parliament of Australia, to multiculturalism and human rights advocacy, and to the community’. He was extremely influential in changing the Liberal Party stance on refugees and asylum seekers, making the Howard government soften mandatory detention cases and ensure those held long term get their cases reviewed regularly. Now a Member of the Order of Australia, John Nicolakis AM has been honoured for his tireless work for the Northern Territory’s Greek community. He spent more than 17 years as the president of the NT Greek Orthodox Community and is involved in organising the annual Greek Glendi Festival, which was held over the weekend. Also awarded in the same category was Constantine Dionysios Vertzayias, who was selected thanks to his service to the NSW Greek community and his support of the Greek language. Three Greeks were awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia, including the only Greek Australian woman. Mrs Angeliki Kay Alexiou OAM, who sadly passed away before she could receive the award, was nominated for her ‘service to women’s health and to the community’. She helped establish the Adelaide Women’s Community Health Centre (Hindmarsh) and the Rape Crisis Centre in the 1970s. A famous face in the Greek Australian literary world, Kyriakos (Kitia) Amanatidis OAM was nominated for his ‘service to the Greek Australian community, as an author and educator and through a range of cultural organisations’. A Neos Kosmos regular, Mr Amanatidis says he has no idea who nominated him, but is thankful nonetheless. “It is pleasant I suppose at a personal level, but more broadly, I think it’s important that in that list there should be names [of] Greek origin,” he told Neos Kosmos. “We are a vibrant community, very active in various aspects of life and therefore if some of the members are recognised it is a reflection on the whole.” When asking him what part of his career he’s most proud of, Mr Amanatidis mentioned his work for the periodical, Antipodes. Started in 1974, it is still being published today and gives Greek Australians the opportunity to publish their literature. The awards also gave thanks to exceptional military service and emergency service. Queensland paramedic, Nicholas Constantine Lentakis, received an Ambulance Service Medal for his outstanding contribution to the workplace reform process at both state and regional level, including an extensive education program. 582 Australians received Queens Birthday honours this year which were all nominated by people of the community. Governor General Quentin Bryce says the Australian Honours System was a chance to promote philanthropy and good will. “They elevate the concept of giving to others,” she said. “They heighten our respect for one another, and they encourage Australians to think about the responsibilities of citizenship in our democracy.”last_img read more

Turkeys tourism sees record breaking increase leaving neighbouring Greece light years behind

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Proving last year’s predictions wrong, international tourists were not deterred by president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s polarising internal and external politics with arrivals breaking all records between January and March 2018.In spite of the leader of the pro-Kurdish party being imprisoned alongside another 13 of the party’s elected deputies, more than 80 mayors of Turkish cities and hundreds of journalists journalists also jailed, not to mention regular waves of political asylum seekers streaming into Europe, arrivals of foreign visitors have actually grown by 34.9 per cent reaching 5.13 million.Turkey has received 1.3 million more tourists compared to the same period in 2017, according to data from the local Tourism and Culture Ministry. Taking into consideration the fact that Turkey separates the arrivals of foreign tourists from those of Turkish nationals living abroad who visit Turkey regularly the increase translates into a whopping 50.5 per cent.Meanwhile, Greek tourists visiting Turkey has also seen a good 16.2 per cent increase, regardless of the tensions between the neighbouring countries.It is worth noting that 76.1 per cent of Turkey’s income (excluding GSM roaming and marina service expenditures) was obtained from foreign visitors and only a 23.9 per cent was obtained from Turkish citizens living abroad.Turkey’s top five source markets in the first quarter came from China, Russia, Britain, Germany and Italy.At the same time, tourism income in Turkey increased by 31.3 per cent and reached to US$4.5 billion, during the first quarter of 2018 alone, Tornos News reports.last_img read more

Liban une plaque tournante de la contrebande danimaux

first_imgLiban : une plaque tournante de la contrebande d’animaux Depuis des années déjà, la contrebande d’animaux sévit au Liban. Véritable plaque tournante, le pays rencontre de plus en plus de difficultés à gérer cette invasion animale et le trafic qui se cache derrière ce phénomène.Le Liban n’a pas signé la Convention sur le commerce international des espèces menacées d’extinction (Cites) et cette carence juridique facilite l’importation d’animaux sauvages, notamment par la frontière syrienne. L’instabilité régnant à l’heure actuelle dans ce pays voisin contribue ainsi à une recrudescence des problèmes liés aux animaux issus de la contrebande. De plus, le Liban ne dispose d’aucune loi sur le droit des animaux qui sanctionneraient explicitement les trafics et la maltraitance.À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?“Ces dernières années, au moins vingt lions ont été importés illégalement de Syrie. Sur ce nombre, huit sont morts en captivité au bout de quelques semaines”, explique la présidente d’Animals Lebanon, Lana El-Jalil. Des lions, des chimpanzés, des tigres, des hyènes, des serpents et des crocodiles : ce sont des milliers, voire des dizaines de milliers d’animaux qui entrent ainsi illégalement dans le pays du fait de contrebandiers qui profitent de cette législation laxiste. Ces animaux sont la plupart du temps vendus, transféré, maltraités voire abandonnés lorsque personne n’en veut. Depuis quelques années, le Liban est ainsi devenu une véritable plaque tournante, selon des associations de protection de la nature. Pour protéger les animaux et tenter d’enrayer le phénomène, une campagne a récemment été lancée dans le pays. “La situation est alarmante”, estime Sevine Zahrane, de l’ONG Beyrouth pour le traitement éthique des animaux (BETA). “Les animaleries vendent absolument tout ce que les clients peuvent demander, que cela soit des (singes) vervets, d’autres primates, des crocodiles ou même des espèces de perroquets en voie de disparition”, explique Mme Zahrane citée par Good-planet.info. Des groupes comme Beta et Animaux Liban viennent régulièrement au secours de chiens, chats mais aussi de hyènes, babouins ou lionceaux gardés par des propriétaires peu scrupuleux en vue de les domestiquer.Dans un des appartements de la capitale par exemple, un lionceau continue de grandir et son propriétaire – dont on dit qu’il se promenait en ville jusque récemment avec le lion en laisse – refuse de l’envoyer dans un refuge. Animaux Liban a soumis un projet de loi en novembre dernier au Parlement, avec le soutien du ministère de l’Agriculture, pour améliorer l’encadrement du transport et de la possession d’animaux, obligeant notamment les zoos à obtenir des permis.

Sex tech company Lora DiCarlo gets CES robotics award it was first

first_imgFoster seemed to echo the claims, saying that the CTA is constantly asking, “How do we drive the industry forward?” As a leader on a global stage, CTA has an ability to elevate smaller, more diverse tech.CES’ annual Innovation Awards recognize exceptional achievements in technology. In October 2018, Lora was notified it had won the CES 2019 Innovation Award in the Robotics and Drones category, an honor that would be announced at the 2019 event in Las Vegas.That category is described on the CES site like this: “Consumer drones, consumer UAVs and other unmanned systems that are able to fly, move, or otherwise be operated from a remote location. May include secondary features such as photo/video recording, movement of materials, mapping, way-finding, search/rescue, or other capabilities.” Gadgets We won a CES Innovation Award for Robotics and Drones – then they took it back.

The company still made an appearance at a smaller nighttime show, but nowhere near the main CES show floor where it was denied placement, and not at the Innovation Awards ceremony. On Wednesday, the Consumer Technology Association reversed the award’s revocation, which had gotten sex tech companies, other 2019 CES attendees and the media talking about the placement of sex tech among consumer products.”CTA did not handle this award properly,” Jean Foster, CTA’s senior vice president of marketing and communications, said in a statement. “This prompted some important conversations internally and with external advisors and we look forward to taking these learnings to continue to improve the show.”In a follow-up call, Foster said the CTA is always looking to expand the show into new areas. “One of the benefits of CES … is the fact that we’re always looking at what are the latest innovations in consumer technology and how do we (put) them in the show.”Foster also that said while the CTA didn’t believe there was anything fundamentally wrong with the awards, it’s reviewing policies and processes to ensure it’s following its own rules.Lora DiCarlo said it was thankful for the restoration of the award given for the company’s work in advanced robotics.”We appreciate this gesture from the CTA, who have taken an important step in the right direction to remove the stigma and embarrassment around female sexuality. This is a win for our engineering team, who deserve recognition for the robotic technology they developed in the making of Osé. The Lora DiCarlo team is committed to pushing the technology industry forward and to embrace female, diverse and LGBTQ innovators.

At the time, the device incorporated five pending patents for robotics, biomimicry and engineering feats, according to Lora DiCarlo.On realizing what type of device the Osé, nee Vela, was, the CTA revoked the award, apologizing and saying that the Lora DiCarlo product “does not fit into any of our existing product categories and should not have been accepted for the Innovation Awards Program.” The CTA went on to say that this was because “CES is a professional business show, and porn, adult toys and sex tech products are not part of the event.”Also on Wednesday, Lora DiCarlo announced that it had raised an additional $2 million in financing, bring its total investment to date to $3.2 million. Founder and CEO Lora Haddock said in a release that she was honored by the financial show of support: “Our investors support our mission of promoting gender equity and making societal changes that benefit everyone.”Now the big question that remains is whether we’ll see Lora DiCarlo and other sex tech companies on the show floor at CES 2020.lora-dicarlo-ose-solo-sex-techThe Osé is a robotic sex toy designed to mimic human touch.

Kashmir tensions spill over to UKs Pak Indian communities

first_imgLondon: Ever since thousands of troops placed Indian-administered Kashmir in lockdown, Sohail Nasti has been sitting in the living room of his north London home frantically trying to communicate with his family. With all mobile phone networks, landlines and internet access cut off in the region, it has been impossible to establish how they are faring. Also Read – Enforcement Directorate summons Karnataka Congress leader D.K. Shivakumar Advertise With Us The best he has managed is to get through to a local police station via satellite phones being used by security forces. “They just told me that everything is fine and that there’s nothing to worry about. Kashmir is normal, they said, but from here in London it’s anything but that,” said Nasti. As the head of a global charity, he has good reason to be concerned about the Himalayan state in which he was born, which again finds itself plunged into turmoil after the Indian government revoked its special status. Also Read – Fresh restrictions imposed in Kashmir Valley Advertise With Us Known as Article 370, it stripped away the autonomy that Kashmir was granted in exchange for joining the Indian union after independence in 1947. The move by Prime minister, Narendra Modi, has led to fears of widespread unrest and paralysed normal life as tens of thousands of extra troops and security personnel were dispatched to add to the estimated 500,000 already present, making it one of the world’s most militarised zones. Advertise With Us Of the 1.1 million British Pakistanis, more than one million originate from the part of Kashmir governed by Pakistan. While there are no official figures for the number of Indian Kashmiris in Britain, the overall British Indian community numbers almost 1.4 million and support for India’s position is strong among some sections. Wedged between India and Pakistan, Kashmir is divided between the two nations and bitterly contested by them. Both claim it as their own, have fought two wars over it and made it a volatile nuclear flashpoint, given their respective arsenals. “It’s a very sensitive issue for both communities and I’m worried that it could damage relations between the two. We have to make sure that whatever we do, it does not spill over into unrest or hatred between British Indians and Pakistanis,” said Raja Sikander Khan, a London-based campaigner on Kashmir human rights. A counter demonstration is scheduled by British supporters of India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata party (BJP). A number of other events are also set to take place to draw attention to the Kashmir issue over the coming weeks while leading British Pakistani politicians have written to the Foreign Office and the UN calling for action against India over its current actions. Lord Nazir Ahmed, one of the signatories who originates from Pakistan-administered Kashmir said: “There is bound to be some heated debate between the two communities but we have to ensure that it remains just that. “We are determined to put pressure on the international community because what India has done is illegal. But the solution is through peaceful dialogue, both between British Indians and Pakistanis and the respective governments of each country.” Forum president Krishna Bhan said: “We have the support of many British Indians, not just those who originate from Kashmir, and several parliamentarians. I accept that things are a little tense between the British Indian and Pakistani communities at the moment but I’m confident that matters will settle down. Revoking article 370 will lead to a better future for Kashmir.”last_img read more

Outlook Good For Statewide TextingWhileDriving Ban Key Lawmakers Say

first_img Share Tim Park for The Texas TribuneAfter pushing the issue for nearly a decade, key lawmakers in the Texas Legislature are optimistic that a statewide texting-while-driving ban is within reach.Texas is one of four states that do not have a statewide ban on texting and driving. That distinction has drawn renewed attention in recent days following an accident in West Texas in which a truck driver who was texting and driving crashed into a church bus and killed 13 senior citizens.State Rep. Tom Craddick, R-Midland, author of the texting ban bill that recently passed the House, said about the accident: “It’s a tragic situation. It’s a wasted situation.”Craddick, who has pushed for the ban for four sessions in a row, offered condolences to the victims, their families and the church in a statement last week.“No message or e-mail is important enough to risk injury or death while driving on our Texas roadways,” Craddick said.If Texas had passed a texting-while-driving ban when Craddick first filed a bill creating one in 2011, Texas would have been the ninth state to pass such a law, he said. If House Bill 62 passes this session, it will be the 47th.In 2015 and 2013, Craddick’s proposal passed the House but died in the Senate. In 2011, it traveled through both chambers only to be vetoed by Gov. Rick Perry, who said it would “micromanage the behavior of adults.” In the 2015 session, a group of conservative senators helped kill the proposal, arguing that it could lead to unreasonable searches by police, among other concerns.This year, both Craddick and the measure’s most vocal advocate in the Senate, Judith Zaffirini, are hopeful the measure will draw enough support in the upper chamber and Gov. Greg Abbott will sign it.There are some members in the Senate who have voted against a statewide ban in the past that are now saying they are going to vote for it, Craddick noted.One of them is state Sen. Craig Estes, who said in March, according to KUT, “When we first started working on this, I was a ‘no,’ and then I almost had a terrible wreck.”Other senators have changed their minds over the years as they have grown more sensitive to the prevalence of the issue and the consequences of inaction, Zaffirini said.“The first time I carried it in 2009, nobody was interested in it but I kept on. Now more people understand it,” Zaffirini said.Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has also changed course on the legislation. In 2011, he said to pass a law on texting and driving is “one more nanny state intrusion on our lives.”This session, he said in a radio interview on KRLD, that he is uncertain whether there is enough support in the Texas Senate for the ban, but suggests he backs it. “Personally, I don’t think people should be taking their eye off the road,” Patrick said. “I have evolved on the issue personally over the past several years. It’s clear now it’s a serious issue.”Under his proposal, offenders would be charged with a misdemeanor and be fined $25 to $99. Repeat offenders would have to pay between $100 and $200 in fines.Craddick pointed to research from Alva Ferdinand, an associate professor in health policy and management at Texas A&M, who has said a statewide ban could prevent 90 deaths a year. The most effective way to curb deaths related to people texting-and-driving is to make it illegal, he said, comparing the move to the law that people in cars wear seat belts.“No one ever thought seat belts would go into effect and now it’s just standard use to buckle up. Only once it became law did most people start to buckle up,” Craddick said. About three dozen Texas cities already have a texting-and-driving ban in place. Cities would still be allowed to implement ordinances that are stricter than the proposed state law under the current version of the legislation.Read more:In 2015, the demise of a texting-while-driving ban bill was seen as a victory for a group of Tea Party Freshmen in the Texas Senate.This article originally appeared in The Texas Tribune at https://www.texastribune.org/2017/04/04/austin-bus-crash-brings-concerns-about-texting-and-driving-ban/.Texas Tribune mission statementThe Texas Tribune is a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.last_img read more

After Maria One Of The Worlds Best Bioluminescent Bays Slowly Begins To

first_imgTwo people swim at a beach in Vieques, Puerto Rico. One of the bays on the island is famous for its bioluminescent plankton, which are slowly recovering after Hurricane Maria.On a normal night, dozens of tourists would be gaping at the glowing sea life on Mosquito Bay, a cove named after a legendary pirate ship in Vieques, Puerto Rico. But on a night in mid-December, it’s empty. The loudest sounds are the frogs croaking in the mangroves.Hurricane Maria wreaked havoc on the small island 8 miles off the coast of Puerto Rico, destroying power systems, ripping apart homes and damaging its bioluminescent bay, one of the brightest in the world and a lifeline for its vital tourism industry. For weeks after the storm, the water was dark.But, slowly, it’s starting to glow again, as the delicate chemistry of the bay recovers from the hurricane’s disruptive winds and dousing of fresh water. Nearly three months after the storm, we paddle out on kayaks with Angie Hernandez, a guide for the Vieques-based ecotourism company Black Beard Sports. The stars are brilliant overhead.We’re here tonight to look down into the water for luminous sea life called dinoflagellates. These single-celled plankton light up when they are disturbed. When plankton are numerous and conditions are optimal, running your hand through the water leaves a trail of flickering light.The species here glows blue-green. It’s called Pyrodinium bahamense, or “the whirling fire of the Bahamas.” Hernandez and another guide say that when the bay is glowing at full force, you can actually tell what kind of fish are moving underwater based on the shape of the glow. Fish jumping above the surface leave a trail of luminous splashes. When it rains, they say the whole surface of the water is alight.Edith Widder, a bioluminescence specialist and the co-founder of the Ocean Research and Conservation Association, says glowing is a defense mechanism for these creatures, which share characteristics with both plants and animals. The flashes may alert larger predators to the presence of whatever is disrupting the plankton.“So, it’s remarkably complicated behavior for a single-celled creature, and boy can it be spectacular,” she says.But hurricanes ruin the light show. Rain disrupts the bay’s chemistry with lots of fresh water. Hurricane Maria damaged the mangroves surrounding the bay, which provide an essential vitamin to the dinoflagellates, Widder says.And high winds can actually push the glowing creatures out into the open ocean. “Winds could have pushed the water out of the bay, out of the mouth of the bay,” Hernandez adds. After other hurricanes, it reportedly took months before the bay started glowing again, she says.We stop at an area of the bay close to the mouth and dip our hands in the water, leaving a trail of light. “I’m pushing the paddle forward and you’re able to see a ball, like a formation of light,” Hernandez demonstrates.It’s striking, and yet it’s only a fraction of the usual brightness, she says — perhaps a two on a 10-point scale. Here’s a video created by a recent visitor to Vieques that gives a sense of the glow:Widder says there are only a handful of bioluminescent bays worldwide – and there used to be many more. “And they’re not nearly as bright, any of them, as they used to be. Which is distressing.”Pollution is actually having a bigger impact than hurricanes, she says. “We’re releasing so much stuff into our water with no real clear understanding of what its impacts may be on these very complex ecosystems.”Mark Martin-Bras, the director of research for the Vieques Conservation and Historical Trust, takes weekly water samples to monitor the bay. He says they’ve seen fluctuations in luminescence since the storm and it’s not clear how long it will take for the bay to recover. But, he adds, “the marine world has a way of surviving and cleaning itself, to a point, from these natural disasters.”This difficult situation provides an opportunity, he says, to learn more about how this ecosystem deals with powerful hurricanes. And it serves as a reminder: “The attraction of this island, and the power of it, comes from the natural things, and you want to protect them rather than exploit them.” It’s the crown jewel of the island’s natural wonders, he says. “It’s magic.”On the bay, Hernandez says the flickers of light from the water are a relief. Life after Maria has been extremely difficult. She went weeks without regular running water. And she’s only had a handful of tours come through. But tonight she can see the bay is coming back.“Seeing this now, after seeing it diminish, this gives me a lot of hope,” she says.Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.

Windows 10 Insider Build 15025 is all about bugs and fixes

first_imgWindows 10 Insider Build 15025 is all about bugs and fixes by Martin Brinkmann on February 02, 2017 in Windows – Last Update: July 05, 2017 – 13 commentsMicrosoft pushed out Windows 10 Insider Build 15025 to the Fast Ring channel yesterday evening featuring mostly bug fixes.Some devices, all running 32-bit versions of Windows 10, are excluded from receiving the update though the company notes in a blog post announcing the new release.Microsoft plans to make ISO images available at the end of the week which will work on 32-bit PCs as well so that the update may be installed on those devices.The new feature listing is on the light side this time after being quite impressive in builds 15014 and 15019.Windows 10 Insider Build 15025Microsoft is still tinkering when it comes to the new blue night light feature of Windows 10. The change in this particular build of Windows 10 drops the minimum K value to 1200 K. The company notes that the entire slider range should work now as well.Night Light may be used to display warmer colors at night to be easier on the eyes and improve sleep. It can be enabled automatically, for instance on schedule, or enabled manually.Windows 10 Build 15025 features two improvements to accessibility features. First, beta Braille support is now available in Narrator.To make use of it right now, you need to perform the following actions:Make sure that Narrator is enabled. You find it under Start > Settings > Ease of Access, or by using the keyboard shortcut Windows-U.Click on the “download and install Braille” button on the same page.Find Enable Braille under Settings > Ease of Access, and add a braille display afterwards. The Windows implementation supports USB and serial connections.Select the language and braille table afterwards on the same page.Microsoft notes that you should not enable Braille in Windows 10 if you are using a third-party screen reader already as a braille display due to issues that exist currently.The second accessibility feature enables you to set up mono audio in the Ease of Access settings. You can enable it under Start > Settings > Ease of Access > Other Options.Apart from collections in the Feedback Hub, all remaining changes are fixes or smaller improvements for existing features.Gamers will be happy that Microsoft fixed the game window minimizing issue, Google users that connections to certain Google sites are no longer problematic, and Edge users that extensions in the browser work again.The list of active bugs in the latest Windows 10 Insider Build version is not as scary anymore as it was in the last version, but some bugs may still have a major impact on the system.Microsoft is working on fixing issues with Edge’s Developer Tools that may hang, crash or fail when invoked.  The bug that audio stops working sporadically is still there, and the Action Center bug that makes it appear blank and transparent as well.Two new bugs have been discovered already in this new version. The first affects some games that use copy protection. Microsoft does not reveal how these games are affected though, but the most likely scenario is that those games refuse to run.The second bug affects the Desktop App Converter which enables developers to turn legacy Windows programs into UWP applications. The program fails to run on this particular version of Windows 10.Closing WordsThe next Insider Build releases will feature fewer feature additions, and more bug fixes and improvements to existing features. Microsoft plans to release the Creators Update in March or April of 2017.Now You: What’s your take on this new build?SummaryArticle NameWindows 10 Insider Build 15025 is all about bugs and fixesDescriptionMicrosoft pushed out Windows 10 Insider Build 15025 to the Fast Ring channel yesterday evening featuring mostly bug fixes.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
