World trading order is facing biggest threat since Second World War Foreign

OTTAWA — With the winds of a potential China-U.S. trade war gaining strength, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says the global trading order that Canada helped create faces its greatest threat since 1945.“I think that in some ways this is the most fraught moment since the end of the Second World War. And that’s a big thing to say,” Freeland said during a panel discussion in Winnipeg on Wednesday.Freeland said the global trading order is now facing its most challenging moment since Canada helped establish it after the war, a development that laid the foundation for the peace and prosperity that much of the Western world currently enjoys.‘Together, we will fix NAFTA’: U.S. ambassador confident deal will be reached despite obstaclesHow Canada can benefit from Trump’s mad rush to wrap up NAFTA talksShe didn’t name the Trump administration, but it is at the epicentre of economic uncertainty that has thrust world markets into downward spiral in recent days.In the face of that, the U.S. now wants an agreement in principle on the North American Free Trade Agreement in the coming weeks as it swaps escalating punitive tariff measures with China.Canadians watched record gains in the market evaporate as President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday that the U.S. lost its trade war with China a long time ago because of the incompetence of his political predecessors.Freeland will be in Washington on Thursday to meet U.S. trade czar Robert Lighthizer as part of the ongoing efforts to complete a renegotiation of the NAFTA.Freeland and Lighthizer met last month in Washington and the minister said they made good progress.“NAFTA is my biggest, most immediate, most constant challenge. It’s part of this bigger issue because the rules-based international order is also about rules-based international trade,” Freeland explained at a meeting of the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce.The broad international implications of the U.S.-China dispute are deeply disturbing, said Paul Evans, a professor of international relations at the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs at the University of British Columbia.“Global supply and value chains are going to be disrupted, the norms and rules of the global trading system eroded further and a whole new level of uncertainty built into the global economic system,” said Evans.“Add to this the Trump administration framing of China as a strategic competitor and the powder train is being laid for a major confrontation.”Joseph Pickerill, spokesman for International Trade Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne, said the government is closely monitoring the U.S.-China situation.“We believe, first and foremost, in free trade, in the rules-based institutions and norms that govern it and in protecting the integrity and reputation of our market in the process.”David MacNaughton, Canada’s ambassador to the U.S., told The Canadian Press on Wednesday that while Canada’s trade focus is on making progress with NAFTA, it is mindful of the impact of the China dispute.“The U.S. has got issues with China. We’ve got some issues with China,” the envoy said.MacNaughton said the fact that Trump, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto will all be in Peru next week for the Summit of the Americas could break the NAFTA logjam.“There is a good chance with the three leaders getting together in Peru, it provides a focus for us to work really hard to try and get as far as we can. I’m not going to predict where this is all going to end up except for the fact we’ve done our homework.”A well-placed source with first-hand knowledge of Canada’s NAFTA stance said the Peru meeting represents the best chance for the three leaders to make progress towards an agreement in principle. The source said centrepiece of any deal will be a resolution on autos.Kelly Craft, the U.S. ambassador to Canada, said in a speech Wednesday that she has “every confidence” that the three countries can “fix NAFTA so that it can work for the next 25 years.”But she said obstacles remain, including resistance to the American proposal to raise the duty-free limit on Canadians visiting the U.S. for 24 hours.“The lineup of cars driving back into Canada every weekend that has to stop and declare any purchase when travelling just for the day — think of the carbon footprint of those traffic jams spread across our border,” she told an Empire Club of Canada luncheon in Toronto.“Now, a lot of Canadians might not agree on what the U.S. suggests — $800 a day — but come on — $200?”With files from Colin Perkel in Toronto and Joan Bryden in Ottawa read more

UN deputy chief links importance of sustainable peace with progress on development

“Peace will only be sustainable if we make progress on development. Let us remember the fundamental formula from the 2005 UN Summit: There is no peace without development, no development without peace and neither peace nor development without respect of human rights,” Mr. Eliasson told the 2016 Forum on Fragility, Conflict and Violence, convened in Washington, D.C., by the World Bank.Mr. Eliasson noted that political rivalries, international interference – known as proxy wars – economic volatility and inequalities, weak governance, human rights violations and a growth in violent extremism, feed conflict.“Between 2007 and 2014, civil wars almost tripled. Wars have recently grown in intensity and scale, becoming more deadly, more protracted, more complex and less amenable to settlement. There is a glaring disrespect and disregard of international humanitarian law,” he stated.In response to the conflicts, the Deputy Secretary-General noted that the UN launched major reviews in 2015 on the tools to respond to conflict, including on peace operations, peacebuilding, and on the fist-ever World Humanitarian Summit later this year.Last year, the UN took landmark steps for sustainable development, beginning with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda and culminating with the historic Paris Agreement on climate change. Mr. Eliasson pointed out that the historic 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development linked all those processes.“This overarching Agenda, agreed by Governments last September in New York, can be summarized in five words: People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership,” he said, adding that with 17 universal, integrated and mutually reinforcing Goals, leaders promised “to translate this agenda into national planning and realities, all over the world.”Mr. Eliasson stressed that the Goals would not be achieved unless everyone heeds the call of the UN Charter to “save succeeding generations from the scourge of war,” while at the same time make progress on development.Highlighting three key messages from the reports on the major review processes, including prioritizing conflict prevention, he said: “We must get better at stamping out the flames before they pose an existential threat to the social, economic and political fabric which underpins human development.”Secondly, he emphasized the need to reduce humanitarian needs, noting that the demand has overwhelmed the supplies. “Around the world, more than 125 million people are in grave need of humanitarian assistance. There are more people displaced than at any time since the Second World War – some 60 million people,” he explained.His third point underlined the necessity of working together to sustain peace through realizing the Sustainable Development Goals – especially important for fragile societies.“Not only must we leave no-one behind, we must first reach those who are furthest behind. We need more attention and resources devoted to conflict-affected countries, and equally more attention and resources targeting the drivers of conflict,” he stressed. The UN deputy chief argued the importance of acquiring a deeper understanding of the relationship between economic factors and conflict – indicating the significance of the cooperation between the UN and the Bretton Woods institutions.“The UN offers its global political reach and legitimacy. The World Bank Group has programmatic expertise and financial muscle,” he said. “In order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and safeguard peace and security for all, we must revitalize the multilateral cooperation in the new global landscape,” he said. read more

Facebook delusion cant replace religion says Church of England bishop as social

The idea that Facebook can replace religious communities is “a delusion”, a Church of England bishop has said, as the social network surpasses global Christianity in numbers. Figures released by the social network for 2018 show that it has 2.32bn monthly active users, more than the most recent available figures for the reach of Christianity. Facebook was founded 15 years ago last Monday, and in a blog post to mark the occasion chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said that “people’s experience in the past was defined by large hierarchical institutions – governments, mass media, universities, religious organisations… Data from the Pew Research Centre suggests that the faith has 2.3bn adherents worldwide.   read more

Danny Baker reveals how panic and revulsion washed over him after royal

The DJ announced on October 22 he would depart to spend more time writing novels, after a troubled few months for the drivetime show.BBC bosses decided earlier in 2018 that Whiley would share presenting duties, in part to address concern over a lack of female voices on the airwaves. Marion Bartoli at Wimbledon 2013 Sachs was scheduled to be interviewed over the phone on the show. Shortly before he was called, Brand told listeners: “In a minute we’re going to be talking to Andrew Sachs, Manuel actor. The elephant in the room is, what Andrew doesn’t know is, I’ve slept with his granddaughter.”When Brand and fellow Radio 2 DJ Jonathan Ross, who was co-hosting, tried to call Sachs during the pre-record, he does not pick up.Ross and Brand left Sachs four voice messages on the then 78-year-old’s home phone, during which Brand joked about the fact that both he and Sachs had appeared on The Bill.Ross is recorded shouting: “He f—– your daughter”, much to the ribald laughter of everyone in the studio. This sparked a run of messages that were, nominally, Brand and Ross trying to apologise for the outburst, but swiftly became increasingly offensive.  The Corporation later said that “a senior editorial figure signed off the programme, including its strong language, before it was broadcast”.Lesley Douglas, Controller of Radio 2, resigned within two weeks and Ross was suspended without pay from all BBC shows for three months.Ross later left the BBC in January 2010, saying: “I think it’s not a bad time for me to move on. It’s possibly not a bad time for them either”. Jeremy ClarksonOn March 25, 2015,  Jeremy Clarkson was told his BBC career was over and that Top Gear would continue without.The presenter had failed to maintain “standards of decency and respect” at work, Lord Hall said.Clarkson was found guilty of “a physical altercation accompanied by sustained and prolonged verbal abuse of an extreme nature” that left his victim, Oisin Tymon, in need of hospital treatment at an A&E department.Announcing the news, previously reported in the Telegraph, Lord Hall said: “It is with great regret that I have told Jeremy Clarkson today that the BBC will not be renewing his contract. It is not a decision I have taken lightly.“I know how popular the programme is and I also know that this decision will divide opinion.”It was the straw that broke the camel’s back for the broadcaster, having sparred with the controversial presenter for a number of years.  Baker tweeted: “Following one of the worst days of my life I just want to formally apologise for the outrage I caused and explain how I got myself into this mess.”I chose the wrong photo to illustrate a joke. Disastrously so.”In attempting to lampoon privilege and the news cycle I went to a file of goofy pictures and saw the chimp dressed as a Lord and thought, ‘That’s the one!’ Danny Baker’s tweet, which he later deletedCredit:@Prodnose/Twitter Danny Baker has revealed how “waves of panic and revulsion” washed over him when he realised the gravity of the royal baby chimpanzee picture he tweeted, which saw him sacked by the BBC.The DJ was fired by BBC Radio 5 Live for posting joke about the Duke and Duchess Of Sussex’s son featuring a picture of a chimpanzee.Following a backlash and allegations of racism given the Duchess of Sussex is mixed race, Baker, 61, deleted the post and apologised.He was lambasted Thursday for attempting to make light of the situation, but on Friday the presenter posted a lengthy thread on Twitter detailing what he described as one of the worst day of his life. In it, he admitted that the post was “racism at it’s basest”, but claimed it was a “genuine, naive and catastrophic mistake”. The segment takes a celebrity and gets two guests to guess which condiment the famous person would ask for if handed a sausage sandwich – brown sauce, red sauce or no sauce at all.Baker said he gave the BBC staff member who fired him short shrift: “I was given a lecture – which I must say I terminated after about 30 seconds with a couple of words I can leave you to fill in.” He said there were “other broadcasters they wouldn’t have done that to” and that the broadcaster was “siding with the vampires who didn’t like me anyway”.Many pointed out that Lord Sugar was not sacked from his BBC job after making a similarly ill-advised Twitter post comparing the Senegal football team to beach hawkers in Spain.  Hazel Irvine and Peter Alliss during the third round of the Ricoh Women's British Open at the Old Course, St Andrews The cross-bench peer and former chairman of Tottenham Hotspur was initially bullish when Twitter users called his comment offensive, saying: “Frankly, I can’t see that. I think it’s funny.”Babita Sharma, an anchor for BBC World News, wrote that his tweet was “vile”, to which Lord Sugar replied: “You make me sick.”But an hour later, having perhaps taken some advice from the BBC, he issued a contrite statement that read: “I misjudged my earlier tweet. It was in no way intended to cause offence, and clearly my attempt at humour has backfired. I have deleted the tweet and am very sorry.”The BBC decided not to sack Lord Sugar. John InverdaleJohn Inverdale, 56, sparked a furore in the summer of 2013 when he made the comment about the appearance of the French player, who had just won the ladies final at Wimbledon.The BBC received around 700 complaints after Inverdale questioned, on Radio 5 Live, whether Bartoli’s father had told her, when she was younger, that she was never going to be a “looker…a Sharapova… you’re never going to be 5ft 11in, you’re never going to be somebody with long legs, so you have to compensate for that”. Hazel Irvine and Peter Alliss during the third round of the Ricoh Women’s British Open at the Old Course, St Andrews in 2003Credit:David Cannon/Getty Baker took several months out of radio after announcing in November 2010 he had cancer. He started chemotherapy and radiotherapy the following January and was given the all clear in June 2011 and returned to radio shortly afterwards. Controversial departures from the BBCRichard BaconBlue Peter presenter Richard Bacon was sacked in 1998 after he admitted taking cocaine. Addressing his departure from the popular children’s show, the then head of BBC children’s programmes Lorraine Heggessey said: “It is sad that such a talented presenter as Richard Bacon has not only let himself and his colleagues down but, most important of all, he has let down the millions of children who watch Blue Peter.” The presenter later attempted to clarify the “ham-fisted” comment and said that he had written to Bartoli to apologise for using a “clumsy phrase”. Lifelong Millwall supporter Baker appeared on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here in 2016. It is not the first time he has been in hot water with the BBC.In 2012, he delivered an extraordinary on-air rant criticising BBC bosses for dropping his afternoon show and asking him to stay quiet about it.He has also been sacked by 5 Live before. In 1997, he was fired for encouraging listeners to heckle a referee. Tricks included playing a miniature piano, posing for photographs and drinking Coca-Cola at the local soda counter.The picture shows the primate dressed to the nines as he attended “Trial of the Century,” the Scopes Monkey Trial in 1925. Thousands watched as Clarence Darrow defended high school science teacher John Scopes for teaching evolution in his classroom while William Jennings Bryan argued for the prosecution. Time magazine described the proceedings as ”the fantastic cross between a circus and a holy war.” Lew Backenstoe and his wife Gertrude Bauman paraded the chimp in front of the waiting press, and the photograph made many of the newspapers the next day.It was the first trial in American history to be covered by the broadcast media, so many Americans were able to see the monkey perform in front of the courthouse on screens across the country.Joe Mendi spent almost a decade in showbusiness before his death. Simon MayoA month after his Radio 2 colleague Chris Evans announced he was leaving, Simon Mayo followed suit after a backlash from listeners over his pairing with Jo Whiley. How the story unfolded on ThursdayHarry and Meghan revealed on Wednesday that their new arrival was named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.Reacting to the news, radio DJ Danny Baker made a joke about the birth, tweeting a black and white photo showing a well-dressed man and woman holding hands with a suited chimpanzee.Baker captioned it: “Royal baby leaves hospital”. Following a backlash and allegations of racism given the Duchess of Sussex is mixed race, he deleted the post and apologised.On Thursday morning, he posted another message on social media, saying he had been “fired” by the BBC, later saying he had made a “grotesque mistake”.A BBC spokesman said: “This was a serious error of judgment and goes against the values we as a station aim to embody. Danny’s a brilliant broadcaster but will no longer be presenting a weekly show with us.”Speaking outside his Blackheath home, he admitted his relationship with the BBC has always been tense, and said he did not know the royal baby was Meghan and Harry’s.When a follower pointed out to him that baby Archie’s mother is mixed race, Baker said he immediately took the tweet down. “No matter how you wrap it up, women will never be able to do things that men can do. If we want to be equal, are you going to get a woman fighting for the heavyweight championship of the world [in] boxing? Are you? Could you?” Later in the show, Brand joked about Sachs committing suicide in the wake of the revelations, saying: “The main news again. Manuel Andrew Sachs hung himself today . . .’”Despite the fact the show was pre-recorded, producers and executives at the BBC greenlit it to be aired on the radio, and didn’t cut the recording of the voice messages left on Sachs’s phone.  Bacon, who was 22 at the time, said: “I have been stupid and regret making a silly mistake experimenting with drugs.”But I have learned the lesson the hard way and I hope it serves as a lesson to lots of other young people. I would also like to apologise to all loyal Blue Peter viewers.”Jonathan RossThe TV and radio host eventually left the BBC under a cloud after the fallout of his and Russell Brand’s lewd messages to Fawlty Towers star Andrew Sachs. A pre-recorded edition of The Russell Brand Show aired on Radio 2 in October 2008 But listeners soon complained at a lack of chemistry between the new pairing. An online petition called “Bring back Simon Mayo and the dream team” gathered more than 10,000 signatures. The presenter himself admitted that the upheaval had been “difficult and upsetting”.Within weeks of the relaunch the BBC was forced to issue a response, asking fans to let the show “settle” and to “give it a chance”. Radio 2 controller Lewis Carnie pledged changes, insisting “no show ends up where it starts”.But listeners were not reassured, and the complaints kept coming.And the controversial non-departureLord SugarThe BBC faced calls to drop Lord Sugar after he tweeted a “joke” comparing the Senegal football team to beach hawkers in Spain.The businessman, who has appeared in The Apprentice since 2005, posted a doctored image of the team posing with sunglasses and counterfeit handbags last summer, and wrote: “I recognise some of these guys from the beach in Marbella. Multitasking resourceful chaps.” Revealing he had been fired after a phonecall from his bosses, Baker added: “For the record – it was red sauce. Always,” in reference to the regular feature Sausage Sandwich Game on his Saturday morning Radio 5 Live show.   Lord Sugar's tweet Lord Sugar’s tweet Alliss continued: “I think women are more delicate than men. I like holding chairs for women. I enjoy the company of women. I don’t want to be bullied by them. I don’t care for macho women, I don’t care for them very much. And yet they’re prevalent today, and very prevalent in some cases. And very forward.” After the 2015 Open, the BBC felt obliged to apologise for Alliss’s aside about Zach Johnson’s wife, Kim Barclay, as he stood over the putt to win the Claret Jug.”She is probably thinking – ‘if this goes in I get a new kitchen’,” Alliss said. Earlier that year he had caused consternation when telling the Radio Times that the Equality Act had “buggered up” the game.History of the photographThe photograph is a picture of famous 1920s chimpanzee Joe Mendi “the gentleman chimpanzee”.The primate was the most popular animal entertainer of the time.He was billed as having “the intelligence of a five-year-old child” and toted around Broadway, New York by circus-owner Lew Backenstoe. The remark on BBC Two satirical show Mock The Week, made in 2008, earned a reprimand from the BBC Trust who branded it “humiliating” and “offensive”.Adlington went on to make a formal complaint through her agent, arguing that the reprimand was nothing more than “a slap on the wrist”.Peter AllissPeter Alliss said in 2017 he would try to be less of a “dinosaur” as he commentated on the Masters.The 88-year-old has worked for the corporation for 58 years, establishing himself as the voice of British golf in he process. However, he has come under increasing criticism over recent years for remarks, which many believe to be sexist.”I’ll try not to be too much of a dinosaur [when covering this year’s Masters], but remember: dinosaurs are making a comeback,” Alliss told Newsweek ahead of the 2017 tournament. Marion Bartoli at Wimbledon 2013Credit:Heathcliff O’Malley “Had I kept searching I might have chosen General Tom Thumb or even a baby in a crown. But I didn’t. God knows I wish had.”Minutes later I was alerted by followers that this royal baby was of course mixed race and waves of panic and revulsion washed over me.”F—, what had I done? I needed no lessons on the centuries slurs equating simians and people of colour. Racism at it’s basest.”I am aware black people do not need a white man to tell them this. Deleting it immediately and apologising for the awful gaffe I even foolishly tried to make light of it. (My situation that is, not the racism involved.) Too late and here I am.”I would like once and for all to apologise to every single person who, quite naturally, took the awful connection at face value. I understand that and all of the clamour and opprobrium I have faced since. I am not feeling sorry for myself. I f—-d up. Badly.”But it was a genuine, naive and catastrophic mistake. …”I am now paying the price for this crass and regrettable blunder and rightly so. Probably even this final word from me will extend the mania. (‘Dog whistle’ anyone?) I would like to thank friends on here for their kinder words and once again – I am so, so sorry.” The presenter, who a year later signed up with Bartoli to commentate for ITV on the French Open, told Radio Times magazine that as well as feeling unwell, he was attempting to fill time.Frankie BoyleThe two-time Olympic swimming champion said she laughed at comedians who made jokes at the expense of others, so had no right to expect special treatment.Frankie Boyle joked on television that Adlington “looks pretty weird… like someone who’s looking at themselves in the back of a spoon”.

Tonights Evening Fix now with added thumbs up and down

first_imgAn installation by Chinese artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu at the opening of an exhibition called China China at the Pinchuk Art Centre in Kiev, Ukraine today. (AP Photo/Efrem Lukatsy)HERE ARE THE things we learned, loved and shared today as we round off the day in three easy steps.THINGS WE LEARNED#BUS ÉIREANN: Executives at Bus Éireann face pay cuts and a longer working week under proposals agreed between management at the company and unions after lengthy negotiations. SIPTU said several issues at the centre of the dispute which provoked a two-day strike have now been resolved, and Bus Éireann said the cost-saving measures will help protect the jobs of its 2,500 employees.#INTERNET: A High Court judge has ordered a group of experts to see if it is possible to remove a video which falsely accuses an Irish student of not paying a taxi fare from the internet. The judge said student Eoin McKeogh had been subject to “vile, crude, obscene and generally obnoxious comments” after he was mistakenly identified as being a fare dodger.#PROPERTY: Businessman and former property developer Breifne O’Brien has failed in his bid to have his trial on charges of theft and deception stopped over adverse media publicity which he claimed could prejudice the hearings. The judge agreed to delay the case for 12 months to allow reporting on O’Brien’s financial affairs fade from public memory before a jury is sworn in.#PENALTY POINTS: Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan has defended an internal Garda investigation into the cancellation of penalty points and said he is very satisfied that the team left no stone unturned in its investigation. Speaking in front of the Oireachtas today, the Commissioner said that road traffic matters were a discretionary issue for Gardaí.#END IT LIKE BECKHAM: David Beckham has announced he is to retire from football at the end of this season. The 38-year-old turned down a one-year extension at club Paris Saint-Germain, saying he felt now is the right time to finish his career while he is still playing at the highest level.#IT’S BACK: Some (unexpected) good news: a medieval sculpture stolen from the grounds of a Meath church last month has been returned to its original position. Locals reported seeing two jeeps driving up to the grounds in the early hours of the morning before unloading the 15th century baptismal font.THINGS WE LOVED(Image: Houghton Library/Harvard)This is one for all the Star Trek fans out there (old school fans, not the Johnny-come-latelys who only started watching when JJ Abrams started doing the films). This excerpt comes from a writers’ guide for the original series which explains how episodes were crafted (“We tantalize the audience with a promise of excitement to come…”) in order to help nail the tone and content of a typical episode. You can see more pages from it over at Slate.Loneliness may be a the next public health crisis in the US – at least, so says this thoughtful and in-depth essay from New Republic, which looks at how loneliness has moved from being a social problem (especially for old people) to something else.It’s one of the largest, longest, widest, tallest and most expensive passenger liners in the world – and the Queen Mary II spent most of today docked in Dún Laoghaire. Taoiseach Enda Kenny officially switches on Eircom’s fibre network at the company’s head quarters in Dublin today. (Photo: Niall Carson/PA Wire)THINGS WE SHAREDGood news, thumbers (that’s a word, right?). You can now change your mind about how you feel about comments on TheJournal.ie. There is something very sinister and almost sci-fi-esque about this video of a sandstorm advancing over Rafh, a town in Saudi Arabia, as seen from a plane flying just above it. Looks like we’re not the only ones to think so: it’s gotten more than 210,000 views in the three days since it was put up on YouTube: (Video: JacekP/YouTube)last_img read more

Wii 2 controller has camera 6inch display stylus

first_imgAs we get closer to June 7, and the start of E3 in Los Angeles, the rumors and leaks are going to increase about what the Wii 2 reveal by Nintendo will consist of.We saw a video of a developer meeting yesterday that had the Wii 2 running, as well as a presentation showing the design of the case and the controller. Today, more details are starting to appear about that tech-heavy controller.AdChoices广告Develop has been told by an “insider” that the controller houses a large 6-inch display that has the option of input via a stylus. We knew the screen was going to be present, but we didn’t realize how large it would be.The other surprise inclusion is a front-facing camera. This is thought to play a part in some games to allow you to capture images for use in-game e.g. using your own mug shot to represent your character. This is a feature Nintendo is thought to be using in forthcoming 3DS games such as the Star Fox 64 remake.Until June 7 all such information remains rumor and speculation. We don’t doubt Nintendo has a number of surprises up its sleeve and will surely get gamers talking about its new hardware.Read more at DevelopMatthew’s OpinionA 6-inch display embedded in the controller sounds a little big to us. If you think how large a 4-inch smartphone is, then add 2-inches and a bunch of standard joypad controllers around it. That’s one large, heavy controller. So that part of the rumor we remain unconvinced about.A stylus also sounds counterintuitive. Nintendo will want games played on a TV with quick input through the controller.

GameStop cloud PCconsole gaming service enters testing

first_imgGameStop announced today that its cloud gaming service has entered closed testing and is expected to enter public beta this year.The service, which rivals similar offerings from start-ups OnLive and Gaikai, allows PC, PlayStation3 and Xbox 360 games to stream from a data center to a remote client using one box and one common controller, regardless of the system for which the game was originally developed. GameStop president Tony Bartel said today that the beta service is live and streaming games from a data center in Austin, Texas.The game retailer is working with publishers to make their portfolios of games available on demand to dedicated hardware and other platforms including smartphones. GameStop is developing the service through its subsidiary Spawn Labs, which the company acquired in April of this year. Spawn Labs originally created a device for home use, the Spawn Box, that worked like a Slingbox for game consoles. Since then, the company has shifted into streaming gaming from central data centers.The service will eventually roll out internationally. GameStop’s UK arm told European gaming site Eurogamer that an EU launch is “in the plans.”The move is the latest in GameStop’s evolving strategy of embracing digital content. At the same time that it acquired Spawn Labs, the retail giant also bought Impulse, a Steam-like digital distribution store for PC games.GameStop’s service is currently scheduled to enter public beta before the end of 2011 and fully launch in mid-2012.via Eurogamerlast_img read more

Why Im less skeptical about Everquest Next

first_imgA few weeks ago, I expressed skepticism about Sony Online Entertainment’s upcoming Everquest Next, a game that was revealed to a chorus of almost unbelievable praise. It’s difficult to complain too loudly, since the game makes some undeniably great steps forward. Features like the all-new combat system look like they could make the genre’s traditionally stiff, almost distant moment-to-moment gameplay more immediate, responsive, and fun. As someone who played WoW to an almost unhealthy extent (which is to say, the typical extent) the idea of improving the gameplay of MMORPGs, as opposed to their gameplay systems, sounds absolutely fantastic.Still, it was the systems that got most of the attention, and after my article Everquest Next (EQN) Director of Development Dave Georgeson was kind enough to call and scream at me for failing to fall in line. (Not really, he was very, very nice.) One of the themes of the conversation was frustration over the need to be cryptic. “We’ve shown people half, probably less than half, of the stuff about this game,” he complained. “It gets really hard to talk about it. I wish we could show you more.”However, he and I were able to delve into a few of the game’s biggest marquis features. As with everything involving EQN, however, discussing one feature means discussing pretty much every feature — thus the frustration. “I’d love to tell you,” was probably the most common phrase of the day. “I can’t wait until we can talk about it,” came a close second.One of the features I found the most bewildering, in terms of the praise it’s received, was the idea of destructible terrain as a portal to other areas. In terms of context and role-playing it’s ingenious, a much less jarring way of sealing certain players off from areas or types of areas. It can disguise load times and provide an easy explanation for impediments to progress — you can’t go deeper because you can’t yet burrow through the deepest strata of the world. However, this didn’t seem to really change much about the fundamental logic of moving from place to place.Georgeson explained a bit further. “We’re talking about generated areas. Where you find something one time… [someone else] won’t be able to just go there and find that same thing.” “You asked what the difference is between digging through some terrain and opening a door,” Georgeson said. “That’s the difference. When you open a door, there’s always the same thing on the other side.” Yet when you dig in Everquest Next, you could burst through to just about anything. This make me wary, but only because the algorithms of the past have failed to satisfy with particularly compelling content. With the amount of enthusiasm present in this team, there’s reason to be optimistic that the will be able to give us a worthwhile subterranean world.When it comes to artificial intelligence, we ran up against more fundamental problems. “Our game is so new, it’s almost impossible to explain some of these things without letting you actually sit down and play it.” We discussed the now-tired example of a goblin infestation, and the ability to drive the beasts out of one part of the world, truly changing the face of Norrath. I asked how it will be possible for a world teeming with adventurers to sustain these sorts of changes — what happens when someone else wants to complete that quest? I tried to stop the word “quest” from coming out, but it was too late — I had said the forbidden word. Everquest Next does not have quests, I was told. At least, not as we’ve known them in the past.Next page: “I’m not supposed to even talk about this yet…” 1 2last_img read more

Cates and Shaws God Country is Another Strong Debut for Image

first_imgStay on target Polaroid Lab Turns Smartphone Snaps Into Instant PhotosAdobe’s New AI Tool Can Identify Photoshopped Faces There are a lot of amazing comic books coming out lately. With a resurgence at Marvel & DC and a plethora of blossoming indie studios, it is always impressive that Image Comics manages to stand out as the consistent publisher of the truly great modern comics. God Country, by writer Donny Cates and artist Geoff Shaw, is a perfect example of the kind of fun, heartfelt stories that Image has been bringing to the table for the past few years.Opening up with a Cormac McCarthy quote sets a tone for this book that is somewhat misleading. Focusing on a family in a more rural area of Texas, as they try to handle the complications that arise when a grandparent becomes unstable, the book sets itself up as this very human, Southern family drama. By the last page, however, these McCarthy-like concepts of human survival and violence are applied to a Jack Kirby level conflict. While this might sound jarring, Cates’ script makes it work, literally tossing a storm on Texas that shakes things up on a cosmic level. Heartfelt, epic and kick ass are all things that are hard to find a balance between.Just as Cates is flexible enough to blend the stories of gods and a southern family, so too is artist Geoff Shaw in his ability to portray all of it. His style, reminiscent of Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire), seems perfect for the solemn, heartbreaking family drama, before jumping onto the crazy train in the last few pages, as a massive storm rips across the Texas plains, and brings gods and monsters with it. Also, colorist Jason Wordie does an amazing job across the board, really bringing a voice to this book. Be it the dusty roads leading up to the family home, a green tornado, or the clashing of titans, Wordie knocks it all out of the park.While I am being vague as to the plot of the book, it is because I do not want to ruin a really great twist towards the end that makes this book go from a well-done story about the heartbreak of a son, and turns it into a must read sci-fi/action story that is built upon a foundation of humanity. Needless to say, this book should be on your radar, especially if you’re a fan of anything that Image has been putting out. God Country is somewhere between Jack Kirby’s New Gods and Jason Aaron & Jason Latour’s Southern Bastards, while also managing to be completely it’s own thing.God Country #1, published by Image Comics, comes out January 11th of next year, and the final order cut-off is December 12th, so make sure to let your local comic shop know that you want a copy (the pre-order code is NOV160544), because trust me, you do. You can also pre-order online at Comixology.Do not miss God Country #1!last_img read more

Regional Publisher Churm Media Debuts Custom Content Division

first_imgAfter ten years in the custom content creation space, Churm Media officially launched its Custom Content Division today. Churm, which publishes OC METRO, OC Family, OC MENUS and Southland Golf, will offer a full range of marketing services for businesses, brands and agencies. Kimberly Porrazzo, former editorial director of Churm’s magazine portfolio, will head up the division. “What we’re doing is not necessarily new; what’s new is that we’re formalizing and creating more and more marketing services for our advertisers and new prospects. Media companies large and small (as we’re a regional media company) are going to survive by finding non-traditional advertising revenue,” says Churm Media CEO Steve Churm.Past custom projects include a monthly magazine for Southern California land developer the Irvine Company. Churm produced the publication for Irvine’s almost 30,000 residents for a decade.Porrazzo explains why Churm is pushing further into the custom content game, “As companies and brands continue to move forward in the digital world, we’re becoming more knowledgeable about things like search engine page ranking and the importance of that. Refreshed content is not the easiest, but it is the most strategic, way to get to that.” Former Churm journalists, editors and designers will be tapped to create website content, blogs, news releases and custom magazines for clients. According to Porrazzo, Churm Custom Content will only work with a select group of clients in order to maintain product quality and business integrity. “These are the biggest challenges we’re facing as an industry: how do we evolve new sources or revenue; how do we meet changing needs of clients and users? This is another attempt by us to do that,” says Churm.last_img read more

9 Indians missing and 2 injured in New Zealand shootings families being

first_img New Zealand mosque shootings: Several killed after gunmen open fire in Christchurch Close Nine people from India or of Indian origin have gone missing after the mass shootings in two mosques in Christchurch on March 15, the Indian envoy in New Zealand has said. The shootings at the Masjid al Noor mosque at Deans Avenue near Hagley Park and the Linwood Masjid Mosque during afternoon prayers claimed 49 lives and injured at least 40 others.High commissioner Sanjiv Kohli tweeted that the nine people missing could be Indians or of Indian origin, but the officials have refused to identify any one of them until “certain processes” were completed.”As per updates received from multiple sources there are 9 missing persons of indian nationality/ origin. Official confirmation still awaited. Huge crime against humanity. Our prayers with their families,” Kohli wrote.In New Delhi, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said that India’s High Commission in New Zealand was in contact with local authorities and would extend help to Indians in the nation. “Our mission is in touch with local authorities to ascertain more details. It is a sensitive matter and therefore we can’t give confirmed numbers/names till we are absolutely certain,” he said.While authorities haven’t identified the Indians, relatives of two Indians — Ahmed Iqbal Jahangir of Hyderabad and Mehboob Khokhar of Ahmedabad — have said that they were told of their kin sustaining injuries. Jahangir’s brother Khursheed spoke to the News Minute and said that Jahangir was rushed to the hospital after the attack and had undergone a surgery. However, he had no further information and said that the family had appealed to the Centre and the Telangana government expedite his visa process so that he could visit Jahangir in New Zealand. A large crowd assembles in Aotea Square for a memorial to remember the victims of the Christchurch mosque shootings on March 16, 2019Phil Walter/Getty Images”He has been in New Zealand for almost 12 years now and he owns a restaurant there which offers Hyderabadi cuisine. He went for his Friday prayers,” Khursheed told TNM. “Two of his friends were killed in the attack. My brother himself is struggling for his life. We are not able to get any proper news about what is happening over there. He has a wife and two children; one aged 3 and one aged 5.”As per the Indian High Commission’s data on its website, New Zealand is home to about 200,000 Indians and Indian-origin people and there are about 30,000 Indian students in the country.Meanwhile, the shooter, an Australian-born, was presented in court on Saturday, March 16, morning. Brenton Harrison Tarrant did not seek a name suppression during his court appearance and is said to have shown no signs of remorse.Instead, the accused smirked at media persons present and swayed while the charges were read out. The 28-year-old Dunedin resident, flanked by two policemen, appeared in white prison clothes, shackled and barefeet, and remained silent throughout. He has been charged with murder and sent to custody without plea until April 5, when he will be produced before the high court for a hearing, reported NZ Herald.last_img read more

Rare Moon Rocks Expected to Fetch 1M at Auction

first_imgStay on target Moon Glows Brighter Than Sun in NASA Fermi’s Vibrant ImagesHelp NASA Develop Autonomous Rovers The holidays are fast approaching. But what do you get the person who has everything?Sotheby’s auction house in New York is putting three Moon rocks up for bid later this month.The lunar samples, returned to Earth in 1970 by the Soviet Union’s robotic Luna 16 probe, are described as “the only known documented samples of the Moon available for private ownership.”AdChoices广告Such specimens tend to remain in the government’s possession; laws prevent public gifts—like those handed out by the Nixon administration—from being transferred to individuals.These stones, however, are the exception.According to Sotheby’s, they were ceremonially presented to Nina Ivanovna Koroleva, widow of the late Soviet rocket engineer and spacecraft designer Sergei Pavlovich Korolev.The tiny samples (0.2 grams each) were first sold by Sotheby’s in 1993 to a private American collector for $442,500—more than the estimated $30,000-$50,000.Now, they’re returning to the auction block to headline the broker’s “Space Exploration” event on Nov. 29. A public exhibition opens on Nov. 25.The lot is expected to fetch between $700,000 and $1 million.Part of the Soviet Luna program, Luna 16 (also known as Lunik 16) was the first robotic probe to land on the Moon and return a sample of lunar soil to Earth.In September 1970, the probe landed with the northern Mare Fecunditatis (“Sea of Fertility”), drilled a hole in the surface, and extracted a core sample before returning the soil to Earth.Luna 16 represented the first lunar sample return mission by the Soviet Union, and was the third overall, following NASA’s Apollo 11 and Apollo 12 flights.This summer, a woman claiming to own a vial of Moon dust—gifted to her as a child by Neil Armstrong—preemptively sued NASA for possession.The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has previously taken the position that “private persons cannot own lunar material,” because it is property of the government.Considering the federal agency has criminally investigated people selling lunar material, and even tried to seize such artifacts in the past, the woman was simply taking precautions to protect her souvenir.More lunar coverage on Geek.com:Who Owns the Moon, Anyway?Thousands of Neil Armstrong’s Souvenirs Up for AuctionThe Full Moon is Electric, Boogie Woogie Woogielast_img read more

Pope to focus on poor in South America trip

first_imgPope Francis makes his first South American trip in two years on Sunday, for an eight-day tour of Ecuador, Bolivia and Paraguay – but not his native Argentina.The 78-year-old Jesuit pontiff, the first pope from his “beloved South America,” has said he wants to highlight the plight of the poor on his home continent.He is due to land in Ecuador’s capital Quito at 3:00 pm (0730 IST) and will give a Holy Mass in eight languages early tomorrow.Francis’s last visit to South America was a triumphant trip to Brazil that culminated with some three million people gathering in Rio de Janeiro along Copacabana beach for a mass at the end of a Catholic youth festival. Also Read – Pro-Govt supporters rally as Hong Kong’s divisions deepenThe Catholic Church has about 1.2 billion followers globally, and Latin America represents the biggest portion of that population. But the region has seen declining numbers as more people turn to Protestant churches.“I want to bear witness to the joy of the Gospel and bring God’s tenderness and care,” the pope said before leaving for South America.“Especially children in need, the elderly, the sick, the imprisoned, the poor, those who are victims of this throwaway culture.” The papal visit coincides with a time of political tension in Ecuador.last_img read more

Memory History Tool for Windows

first_imgMemory History Tool for Windows by Martin Brinkmann on June 06, 2016 in Software – 5 commentsMemory History Tool is a free memory monitor for the Windows operating system that provides you with real-time and historic information about a device’s memory use.While desktop memory is cheaper than ever nowadays, considering that you can get 16 Gigabytes of RAM for less than $50, it is still something that is of major concern to many computer users.Reasons for this are manifold, from running systems with low memory over devices with fixed amounts of memory, to going crazy if half the memory is used up by the operating system even though plenty is still available.Memory History ToolMemory History Tool can be downloaded from the developers website. You can run it right after you have downloaded it from the developer’s website as it is a portable application.It is recommended to run it with administrative privileges as it won’t be able to include all processes in the monitoring otherwise. Still, it can be run as a normal user as well.To do that right-click on the executable file in the root directory of the package, and select run as administrator from the context menu.Memory History Tools displays the following information in its interface on start:The total and available memory in Megabyte.The total Memory Load of the system.The Load History in percent.The top process’ name, and memory use.An overall performance indicator.A graph highlighting memory use and other information.While the screen is useful in itself, for instance to quickly see if the available memory is sufficient for everyday tasks, it is the program’s other features that increase its usefulness.Process historyMemory History Tool keeps track of processes, their memory use and load, while it is running. and displays a list of top processes on demand.This is quite useful as it provides you with information even if the program is just running in the background and not visible all the time. You may use the menu to open the root folder of the process or the file properties.One useful option is to run the program for a day or even week, and check the top process listing afterwards to analyze memory use and load on the system.It can reveal to you if the memory is sufficient, or if the system might benefit from extra memory.You may open the running process history as well, but it is less useful as it provides no information that the Windows Task Manager supports as well.Other useful featuresYou can pause the monitoring at any time without closing the program, and may open csv files which the program creates automatically to access the information in spreadsheet programs such as Excel.You may export the process list or individual information to csv files on top of that.Closing WordsProcess History Monitor is a handy program if you want to monitor a system’s memory use and load over time.While you may use the Windows Task Manager for that as well, at least partially, it may not be as easy to go through and use, especially since the Task Manager won’t reveal the top processes over time.Summary12345 Author Rating4.5 based on 3 votes Software Name Memory History Tool Operating System WindowsSoftware Category SystemLanding Page http://www.lattonsoft.hu/memhistory/ Advertisementlast_img read more
