Vikas Krishan Yadav enters Asian Boxing Championships final

first_imgFormer World Championships bronze-medallist Vikas Krishan (75kg) was the lone Indian to make the final while three others settled for bronze medals after losing hard-fought semifinal contests in the Asian Boxing Championships here on Friday.Vikas defeated Iraq’s Waheed Abdulridha 3-0 to set up a clash with Uzbekistan’s Bektemir Melikuziev in the final on Saturday. However, Satish Kumar (+91kg), L Devendro (49kg) and defending champion Shiva Thapa (56kg) lost their respective semifinals despite valiant efforts and settled for bronze medals.All three of them had earlier assured themselves of berths in next month’s World Championships – the first qualifier for 2016 Olympics. Also making the World Championships cut were, Madan Lal (52kg) and Manoj Kumar (64kg) after the Uzbek boxers who beat them in the quarterfinals – Shakhobidin Zoirov, seeded second, and Fazliddin Gaibnazarov respectively – advanced to the final.Vikas, an Asian Games bronze-medallist, was the last Indian in action and he made sure that the contingent had something to cheer for after a largely disappointing day.Unlike his usual defensive style, the Haryana-lad was attacking in his approach and let loose a flurry of combination punches to push Abdulridha on the backfoot.The Indian, the busier of the two when it came to attack, did not allow Abdulridha to come out of the shell guard in the first round.In the second round, Vikas targetted Abdulridha’s torso, forcing him to counter-attack. Vikas then took full advantage of the defensive lapses committed by the Iraqi and connected his left uppercuts with deadly accuracy.advertisementIn the end, the 23-year-old emerged a unanimous winner, getting the nod of all three judges.”His boxing was very clean and his punches had power. In the final round, he showed how to maneuver after dominating the first two rounds. Very clinical show,” national coach Gurbax Singh Sandhu told PTI.”It is a very satisfying performance and I am glad that six of my boys made the World Championships cut,” he added.last_img read more

If found job was in jeopardy, what would you give up to keep your job? Re-hire Probability: Should employees lose their job, 39% think they will have a new job within 6 months.Younger workers (18-34) are far more confident than those  55 and over as rehire expectations is 44% and 25% for each respective age group.  In fact, of those over 55, nearly half (47%) think it is unlikely they would find a job and 1 in 4 (28%) say it’s VERY UNLIKELY. Glassdoor Report: Concession Indicators Company Outlook:Is the worse over?  The majority of employees seem to think so as more than half (51%) think their company’s business outlook will stay the same and more than one-third (35%) think it will get better in the next six months compared to just 14% who think it will their company’s outlook will get worse.Concession Indicators:What would you be willing to give up in order to keep your job if you found out it was in jeopardy?The majority are willing to do their part and take on more projects and responsibility (70%) and/or work more hours (62%) but nearly half (48%) say they will not take a pay cut to keep their job and 38% will not take a furlough or other unpaid leave.However, salary cuts and lost vacation time are more palatable than they were at the end of December.  Forty percent are willing to take salary cuts compared to 30% in December and 30% are willing to forfeit vacation, compared to 24% in December.

Or for highlights from our Q42008 report check out the results here.1) For the purposes of this study “employees” were defined as U.S, adults 18+ employed full time or part time unless otherwise indicated.2) The survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Interactive on behalf of Glassdoor.com between March 19- 23, 2009 via its QuickQuerySM online omnibus service, interviewing a nationwide sample of 2,798 U.S. adults aged 18 years and older, of whom 1,576 are employed full time or part time. The Q4 survey was conducted Dec.16-18, 2008 among 2,281 U.S. adults 18+ of whom 1,331 were currently employed (full time or part-time).This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimates of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.

Attention nonprofit marketers: Seth Godin is right again

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player PSG came close to signing the Belgian before he joined City in 2015 and the French club are keen to tempt him again as they look to assemble a side capable of winning the Champions League.They have made it known to the midfielder’s camp that they will make a big-money move at the end of the season, if he were to give any indication that he wants to leave the Etihad Stadium.The Ligue 1 club had an agreement with De Bruyne when he decided to leave Wolfsburg two years ago, but eventually decided to bring in Angel Di Maria from Manchester United instead.However, De Bruyne is said to be 100 per cent committed to City, and particularly happy with life under Pep Guardiola, which is why club sources believe contract talks have progressed so smoothly in the last month.Kevin De Bruyne Manchester CityThose sources have told Goal that an agreement on a new deal is already “very close”.De Bruyne’s agent, Patrick De Koster, said last week that he would meet with City in the coming months to discuss a contract on par with what Neymar and Kylian Mbappe earn in Paris.Yet Goal understands he has already met with City officials in Manchester and that a deal worth in excess of £250,000 per week is close to being finalised.That figure is significantly less than Neymar’s £600,000-per-week deal with PSG but is regarded by all relevant parties as recognition for the midfielder’s fine performances so far this season and his place in the club’s plans for the coming years.It is also expected that De Bruyne will extend the length of his current agreement, which runs until 2021.The 26-year-old has emerged as a front-runner for the Premier League’s player of the year awards this season thanks to his role in helping establish City as title favourites in the opening weeks of the season.City do not want to be at risk of losing any of their top stars if they perform well in Russia next summer, which is why Gabriel Jesus, who only signed for the club last year, is also set for improved terms.last_img read more

(Photo by Evan Habeeb/Getty Images)With the 2018 college football season having reached its half-way point on the season, some ESPN writers are starting to make their predictions as to how it all ends. However, one writer is looking to distinguish himself from the crowd.ESPN Staff Writer David M. Hale published a piece of “Semi-bold,” “Fairly bold,” and “Really bold” predictions for the final weeks of the season.But it was his “Really bold” predictions for No. 4 Notre Dame (7-0) and No. 6 Michigan (6-1) that might make some waves.Hale believes that Notre Dame will miss out on the College Football Playoffs while Michigan will ultimately get in.As a school without a conference, Notre Dame likely will only need to finish the year undefeated in order to make the College Football Playoffs. Their remaining opponents are Navy, Northwestern, FSU, Syracuse, and USC.Michigan’s schedule will include Michigan State, Penn State, Rutgers, Indiana, and Ohio State. If Michigan win out and beat Ohio State, they would secure a spot in the Big Ten Championship game.Beating Ohio State will be a big ask for Michigan though. The Wolverines have lost six straight to the Buckeyes.last_img read more

Iraq UN mission details options for resolving internal boundary disputes

The United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) today presented its first analysis to the country’s Government about possible processes to resolve disputes over internal boundaries.The mission said in a statement today that Staffan de Mistura, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Iraq, had presented separate analytical reports on four disputed districts – Akre, Ninewa; Hamdaniya, Ninewa; Makhmour, Ninewa/Erbil; and Mandali, Diyala – to five senior Iraqi officials.“I want to stress that the Government of Iraq alone has the sovereign responsibility to decide on the process and methodology used to address disputed internal boundaries,” Mr. de Mistura said.“UNAMI’s aim in preparing and presenting this analysis is merely to contribute to the development of processes to resolve these complicated and sensitive issues.”The analysis follows a general agreement reached last December, ahead of the deadline set out in the constitution, among the Presidency Council, with the concurrence of the Iraqi Prime Minister and the Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government.The analysis points to a series of specific confidence-building measures designed to assist with the handling of the administrative jurisdiction of the districts in dispute, including in areas where there are tensions between Arab and Kurdish populations as well as other minority groups. UNAMI’s goal is to provide security to all Iraqis living in the disputed territories, and to create momentum towards a wider political agreement.The UN mission also said that it has recently established a presence in Kirkuk, which it described as central to efforts to address disputed internal boundaries in Iraq. UNAMI said it would continue to engage with all communities in the city.“Everyone recognizes that progress on the resolution of disputed internal boundaries – which we are aware are not limited to northern Iraq, with some in central and southern parts of the country – and clarification of administrative alignment must take place alongside wider political compromises that reassure the people of Iraq and solidify the unity of the Iraqi State,” Mr. de Mistura said. 5 June 2008The United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) today presented its first analysis to the country’s Government about possible processes to resolve disputes over internal boundaries. read more

With 825 million over weekend Despicable Me 2 routs The Lone Ranger

With $82.5 million over weekend, ‘Despicable Me 2’ routs ‘The Lone Ranger’ at the box office by Jake Coyle, The Associated Press Posted Jul 7, 2013 12:30 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – The minions of “Despicable Me 2” ran away with the July 4th box office, leaving the Johnny Depp Western “The Lone Ranger” in the dust.According to studio estimates Sunday, the Universal animated sequel took in $82.5 million over the weekend and $142.1 million across the five-day holiday window. Gore Verbinski’s reimagining of the iconic lawman bombed for the Walt Disney Co., opening with just $29.4 million over the weekend, and a disappointing $48.9 million since Wednesday.The trouncing for Disney was especially painful because of the high cost of “The Lone Ranger,” which reportedly cost at least $225 million to make. Made by the same team that created the lucrative Disney franchise “Pirates of the Caribbean” (the four film series that grossed $3.7 billion worldwide) the Western drew bad reviews and failed to capture the attention of younger moviegoers.“We thought it would appeal to a broader audience than it did,” Dave Hollis, head of distribution for Disney, said.Based on the long-running radio program begun in 1933 and the TV series that debuted in 1949, the “Lone Ranger” brand proved a musty one. The audience for the film skewed heavily toward older moviegoers, with 68 per cent of its audience older than 25.“You think that you have everything in place,” said Hollis, listing the proven box-office commodities of Depp, Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. “Even when you have all the ingredients for what you think will be a four-quadrant, ‘everybody’ picture, sometimes it doesn’t work out that way.”The poor performance of “The Lone Ranger” called to mind a previous bomb for Disney: last year’s similarly-budgeted sci-fi adventure “John Carter,” which opened with $30.1 million.But “The Lone Ranger,” which stars Armie Hammer as the masked lawman, will likely fare better than that disappointment, since Depp’s international star power should bring in better worldwide business. It started with $24.3 million abroad, opening in about 30 per cent of its planned international market.While critics skewered the film, it did earn a B+ CinemaScore grade from moviegoers. But “The Lone Ranger” is nevertheless likely to be a sizeable write-down for Disney and could impact the company’s stock price when markets reopen Monday.“Everybody beat up on ‘The Lone Ranger’ pretty hard,” said Paul Dergarabedian, analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. “Everything was just not going in its favour.”On the other hand, Universal made “Despicable Me 2” for the comparatively small amount of $76 million (a figure that doesn’t count a huge marketing budget). The better than expected haul (along with another $88.8 million overseas) establishes “Despicable Me,” which stars Steve Carell as a diabolical villain turned stay-at-home dad, as a new franchise for Universal and Chris Meledandri’s Illumination Entertainment, the Universal-backed animation company.Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal, attributed the strong performance to Meledandri, the robust appetite for summer family films, and, above all, those teaming little yellow guys. The minions will get their own spin-off in 2014, and Rocco said another “Despicable Me” film is a certainty.“The minions steal everybody’s heart,” Rocco said. “It’s a great time of the year to release a family film with broad appeal.”Stand-up Kevin Hart’s concert documentary “Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain” proved savvy counter-programming for Summit Entertainment, opening with $17.5 million over five days, with $10.1 million over the weekend.Fox Searchlight’s family comedy “The Way, Way Back” (which also stars Carell) opened in 19 theatres with a strong theatre average of about $30,000. It slowly expands for a July 26 national release.Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theatres, according to Hollywood.com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released on Monday.1. “Despicable Me 2,” $82.5 million. ($88.8 million international).2. “The Lone Ranger,” $29.4 million ($24.3 million international).3. “The Heat,” $25 million ($4.7 million international).4. “Monsters University,” $19.6 million ($29.5 million international).5. “World War Z,” $18.2 million ($45.2 million international).6. “White House Down,” $13.5 million ($6.8 million international).7. “Man of Steel,” $11.4 million ($21.3 million international).8. “Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain,” $10.1 million.9. “This Is the End,” $5.8 million ($900,000 international).10. “Now You See Me,” $2.8 million ($8.5 million international).___Estimated weekend ticket sales at international theatres (excluding the U.S. and Canada) for films distributed overseas by Hollywood studios, according to Rentrak:1. “Despicable Me 2,” $88.8 million.2. “World War Z,” $45.2 million.3. “Monsters University,” $29.5 million.4. “The Lone Ranger,” $24.3 million.5. “Man of Steel,” $21.3 million.6. “Blind Detective,” $11 million.7. “Cold Eyes,” $10 million.8. “Tiny Times,” $9 million.9. “Now You See Me,” $8.5 million.10. “Fast &Furious 6,” $7.4 million.___Follow AP Entertainment Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/jake_coyle___Universal and Focus are owned by NBC Universal, a unit of Comcast Corp.; Sony, Columbia, Sony Screen Gems and Sony Pictures Classics are units of Sony Corp.; Paramount is owned by Viacom Inc.; Disney, Pixar and Marvel are owned by The Walt Disney Co.; Miramax is owned by Filmyard Holdings LLC; 20th Century Fox and Fox Searchlight are owned by News Corp.; Warner Bros. and New Line are units of Time Warner Inc.; MGM is owned by a group of former creditors including Highland Capital, Anchorage Advisors and Carl Icahn; Lionsgate is owned by Lions Gate Entertainment Corp.; IFC is owned by AMC Networks Inc.; Rogue is owned by Relativity Media LLC. read more

Ridiculously goodlooking criminals mugshot goes viral after police Facebook post

first_imgA HANDSOME MUG shot of a Northern California man arrested on felony weapons charges has gone viral on social media, attracting more than 33,000 ‘likes’ and drawing comments praising his high cheek bones, chiselled face and striking blue eyes. Source: ASSOCIATED PRESSJeremy Meeks, 30, a felon, was arrested Wednesday on five weapons charges and one gang charge, according to Officer Joseph Silva, a spokesman for the Stockton Police Department.No previous arrest photo has garnered so much positive attention since the department set up the Facebook page in March 2012, Silva told The Associated Press.“I have not seen that many likes for a photo before,” he said.By late Thursday, Meeks’ arrest photo had garnered more than 33,000 ‘likes’ and 10,400 comments, and had been shared more than 3,300 times.“Wow. That is one good looking mug shot!” one person wrote.“Momma, I’m in love with a criminal,” another joked.Some online commentators even said Meeks looked like he belonged in an Abercrombie & Fitch ad or on the show “America’s Next Top Model.” Source: ImgurStill others were disapproving, such as one observer who said, “He may be a tad bit cute, but with six felonies, he ain’t that cute.”Meeks was one of four men taken into custody during Operation Ceasefire, a multiagency mission to curb a recent increase in shootings and robberies in the Weston Ranch area of Stockton, a Northern California city of about 300,000 nestled amid the network of waterways that form the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta.Four firearms were confiscated during a sweep Wednesday involving the Stockton police gang unit, the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Task Force and other agencies.Silva called Meeks “one of the most violent criminals in the Stockton area,” though he declined to provide any details on the crimes that Meeks is believed to have been involved in.Meeks, who is being held in lieu of $900,000 bail, is scheduled to be arraigned Friday afternoon.This dress becomes transparent every time you post on social media>According to science, here is the optimum way to enjoy wine>last_img read more

Heure la seconde devient de plus en plus précise grâce à de

first_imgHeure : la seconde devient de plus en plus précise grâce à de nouvelles horlogesGrâce à deux horloges à réseau optique, une équipe de chercheurs français est parvenue à démontrer qu’il était possible de définir le laps de temps d’une seconde avec davantage de précision que la définition actuelle ne le permet.Ce n’est que depuis 1967, grâce aux horloges atomiques apparues dans les années 1950, que la seconde a acquis la définition qu’on lui donne aujourd’hui. Celle-ci est basée sur la période d’oscillation de l’atome de césium qui oscille dans les micro-ondes. Toutefois, de nouvelles horloges sont en train de faire leur apparition : les horloges “à réseau optiques”. Ces inventions piègent les atomes dans un réseau lumineux de façon à analyser “des signaux qui oscillent de plus en rapidement”, a expliqué à l’AFP Rodolphe Le Targat, du laboratoire Systèmes de référence temps-espace (Syrte). L’équipe de scientifiques qu’il a menée en collaboration avec Jérôme Lodewyck a mis au point deux horloges fonctionnant avec des atomes de strontium, dont la période d’oscillation est dans le domaine optique et dont les fréquences sont beaucoup plus élevées que celles des micro-ondes. Réduire les erreurs de comptage Ainsi, l’horloge “bat la mesure avec des tops beaucoup plus rapprochés”, réduisant l’impact des possibles erreurs de comptage, souligne le chercheur. Les études réalisées ont permis de démontrer que les deux horloges à réseau optiques qui avaient été fabriquées avaient une connexion très stable par rapport à celles, au césium, qui sont utilisées pour établir le temps officiel. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?De plus, elles sont également en accord entre elles, à un niveau surpassant la définition actuelle de la seconde. Et la chose est loin d’être inutile puisque ce sont les horloges embarquées dans les satellites qui déterminent la précision de la localisation au sol des systèmes GPS. Étant plus précises, ces nouvelles horloges pourraient donc conduire à redéfinir la seconde, estime Rodolphe Le Targat.Des horloges de nouvelle génération Toutefois, le scientifique précise que son équipe n’est pas la seule à travailler sur ce projet dans le monde. D’autres scientifiques ont mis au point des horloges optiques à ions et les horloges de nouvelle génération continuent à progresser. “Le souci majeur des comités qui sont en charge d’une possible redéfinition de la seconde est de ne pas précipiter les choses”, a-t-il indiqué.La prochaine étape, prévue pour 2014, consiste à comparer le dispositif de ces deux horloges à réseau optique à celui développé à Braunschweig, en Allemagne. Il permettra également de comparer le temps mesuré avec celui fourni par l’horloge de la mission PHARAO-ACES, supervisée par les agences spatiales française (CNES) et européenne (ESA), qui sera placée dans la station spatiale internationale début 2016.Le 10 juillet 2013 à 20:05 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Bare Hands organic Farm is only one acre, but its owners have big plans.Download AudioBare Hands farm, like much of the Upper Valley’s farm land, is a little out of the way.  After leaving the Talkeetna Spur Road and driving a few miles over gravel, then through a series of private driveways, I made it there while only getting lost once.  I was met by two of the three people who operate the farm.KNAPP: “I’m Graham Knapp.”SYKES: “I’m Mindy Sykes.”The third partner in Bare Hands Farm is John Sargent, who works in Bethel, but is planning on spending more time on the farm in future seasons.  In a time when the federal government says the average age of a farmer is fifty-seven, the trio represent an infusion of youth to the agriculture industry.Graham Knapp says that he sees what Bare Hands Farm is doing as part of a larger trend within his generation.“I think there is a movement out there with young people who want to diversify a little bit and create farms that are more community oriented, and where you typically wouldn’t find other small farms.  They just want to infuse the community with fresh, local food.”Mindy Sykes’ reasons for getting involved in small-scale farming are rather similar to what Graham describes.“For me, it’s probably just my love for food, and good food, and becoming more aware of how my food was grown and not wanting to partake of that, and choosing to take part in how food, in my opinion, can be and should be grown.”While Bare Hands Farm does produce a variety of vegetables, including zucchini, turnips, and leafy greens, one of the ways that the owners have found to break into the market is by thinking small, as I discover when we walk into the greenhouse.“Primarily, we’ve been using this for our micro-greens operation.”Micro-greens are basically exactly what they sound like, as Graham Knapp explains.“When a plant first comes up, it’s got it first two leaves, called the cotyledons, and when the first true leaves come in you can harvest them, and that’s considered micro-greens.”The micro-greens are grown from a number of edible plants, and it’s possible to substitute them as ingredients in a salad, but that takes a lot of them, so Graham says that restaurants like to use them as a garnish or to add an edible visual element to a meal.“We like to add color and find the ones that have some color to it, and we find the restaurants like that as an aesthetic quality to their plates.”Bare Hands Farm currently sells to two local restaurants, Twister Creek and the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge.   Mindy Sykes says that there has been interest from other businesses, but the growing capacity will have to expand in order to take on additional customers.“Other restaurants are interested in buying our micro-greens and using them as well, but the brewery and the lodge, with our little greenhouse, was enough for us.  In the future, with our larger greenhouse and dialing it in a little more, we’d love to be able to provide that to more people.”After looking at the greenhouse, Graham and Mindy took me to the vegetable rows, where they have a mix of leafy greens, root vegetables, and even one pumpkin that  produced fruit.  Graham Knapp says that selling the vegetables to restaurants is something that might happen in the future, but it’s not the primary goal right now.“Our main goal is to feed the residents of Talkeetna, and anything on top of that is good too.”For now, feeding Talkeetnans largely means selling at a local farmers market during the summer.  While expansion is definitely being considered, Graham Knapp says thatit doesn’t necessarily take a lot of land to get a large yield.“It’s amazing how much food you can grow in a small area.  We’re putting out a lot of food on under an acre.  We tossed around some numbers.  How big to we want to get?  Two, or three, or five acres?  But that is so much food when you’re growing right.”One of the biggest challenges that faces Alaskan farmers is the short growing season. Graham Knapp says he wants to try different methods for extending that season to provide vegetables later in the year.“I really want to experiment with growing into the fall a little more with the high tunnels we have coming in, and starting things really early, and really extending the seasons a lot more.”My tour of Bare Hands Farm ended at the chicken enclosure, where more than two dozen birds were hiding from the drizzle that had begun.  Some of the birds have recently begun laying eggs, and many more will start soon.  Graham and Mindy are also raising chickens for meat, both for nutritional and ethical reasons.KNAPP:  “Mindy and I have kind of sworn off industrial meat, because we know it’s not treated very well…”SYKES: “And it’s not good for you.  The omega-three to sixes are off, because they’re eating food they’re not supposed to be eating, so it’s really not the best.”KNAPP: “Yep.  We like to know that any meat that’s going to be consumed by us had a good life, ate well, lived well, and was well taken care of.”As I got into my truck and drove away, Graham Knapp and Mindy Sykes went immediately back to work, making the most of what’s left of the Alaskan summer at Bare Hands Farm.– See more at: http://ktna.org/2014/08/26/upper-valley-agriculture-bare-hands-farm/#sthash.IhfYLiy3.dpuflast_img read more

Alaska Tops Gallups Index of WellBeing

first_imgGallup today released its annual Index of Well-Being, and for the first time, Alaska tops the list.The researchers who produce the Gallup-Healthways report say Alaska residents had the highest well-being in the nation in 2014. The Gallup report doesn’t mention that the state has among the highest rates of suicide, sexual assault and other violence.Download AudioNonetheless, Alaskans working in the social services trenches were inclined to greet news of the report with open arms.Laura Brown, a spokeswoman for United Way in Anchorage, says by the time she woke up, a friend had already posted the story on her Facebook wall.“It’s awesome! I wasn’t even aware that we were even close to being number 1, so seeing that was really nice to know,” Brown said.She got to work and found the well-being report all over her inbox, and it was the talk of her office. Brown says it was a real shot in the arm, a counterpoint to Alaska’s high ratings on all those other national indices: Suicide, domestic violence, child abuse, substance abuse.“It’s kind of ironic, I think, that we’ve got both of those things happening at the same time,” Brown said.The well-being index is based on phone surveys – nearly 177,000 nationwide.We couldn’t reach Gallup to ask how many were contacted in Alaska, but their website says the samples are weighted to match each state’s demographics. They asked about five areas: Sense of purpose, or liking what you do each day; financial, social and physical health; and liking where you live, a category that includes “feeling safe” and pride in your community.The research director said in media interviews Alaskans reported the lowest levels of stress, high blood pressure and drug use. Remember: this is based on telephone surveys.  The state, he said, is also No. 1 for having residents who help to improve their community. The community part rings true to Anne Weaver, a manager at the Fairbanks Community Food bank.“I’m so excited to hear that because we get to see all the good in this community and we see it every single day,” Weaver said.Weaver says people hear she works at a “food bank” and they connect with the suffering. But she’s definitely a glass half-full type. As Weaver sees it, the food bank gives her an opportunity to witness amazing generosity, and to do her own bit for well-being.“You know we typically serve approximately 150 people each day, and 40 percent of them are kids, so I can go home tonight knowing that it made 150 people’s day better,” Weaver said.Peter Pinney, Executive Dean for the College of Rural and Community Development at UAF, can’t vouch for Gallup’s methods or findings. But Pinney does see how the dark and light of Alaska’s well-being can both be true.“Well, certainly we are leaders in lots of bad indicators in certain areas, but overall, depending on who you talk to, it is a state where people do pay attention and look out for each other,” said Pinney, who is also president of Arctic Alliance for People, a human services network based in Fairbanks.Pinney says Alaska has higher than average rates of philanthropy and volunteering, particularly in the social services sector.“So even though we have issues, we have a lot of people working on those issues,” Pinney said.You might think people immersed in that work would be inclined to dismiss a well-being survey that doesn’t mention Alaska’s serious problems, but suicide prevention trainer Eric Boyer at UAA says he’s happy for it.“If you think about resilience in a community, they need to know that some things that we’re doing are good, and have some positives,” Boyer said.Boyer says he thinks Gallup did tap into something real about Alaska, but maybe just one side of a dichotomy.Read the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index.last_img read more

The downside is that they seriously compromise iOS security, but they’re not illegal to use in the United States.MORE:  10 Pros and Cons of Jailbreaking Your iPhone or iPadInstructions for the jailbreak are at https://github.com/pwn20wndstuff/Undecimus/blob/master/README.md. Tom’s Guide takes no responsibility for damage or any other type of injury or loss caused by installing this jailbreak.The risks of jailbreaking are real. One iOS security expert told VICE Motherboard  that malicious websites could embed this jailbreak code into a web page, which could then be used to jailbreak an iDevice without the user’s knowledge. He also said Apple made this jailbreak possible by unfixing a flaw that had been patched in iOS 12.3, but didn’t elaborate further.Another iOS expert, Stefan Esser, tweeted that “I hope people are aware that with a public jailbreak being available for the latest iOS 12.4 people must be very careful what Apps they download from the Apple AppStore. Any such app could have a copy of the jailbreak in it.”It’s very likely that Apple will have an update to kill the jailbreak within a day or two. The jailbreak does not seem to survive a device reboot, which makes it not worth much to spies or criminals. But iOS jailbreaks that survive reboots and can be installed remotely can sell for millions of dollars. iPhone 11 release date, news, price and leaksThe best iOS apps you’re not using (but should be)5 key features the iPhone 11 Pro needs to win There’s a publicly available jailbreak for fully updated iPhones.An iPhone jailbreaker using the handle “Pwn20wnd” released a jailbreak yesterday (Aug. 18) that works on most iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches running iOS 12.4, and all iDevices running iOS 12.2 or earlier.  Several people on Twitter said the procedure works fine.The jailbreak, called unc0ver, does not work on iOS 12.3 at all, and devices with A12 chipsets (the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR or the 2019 iPad Mini and iPad Air) need to be running iOS 12.2 or earlier.”If you are not already jailbroken-> Upgrade or downgrade to iOS 12.4 ASAP,” Pwn20wnd wrote on Twitter. “If you are not already jailbroken on A12-A12X with iOS 12.3.x/13.0 -> Upgrade or downgrade to iOS 12.4 ASAP. In any other case -> Just stay wherever you are.” (iOS 13 is available as a beta test release.)RECOMMENDED VIDEOS FOR YOU…logoCreated with Sketch.last_img read more

How to choose a reliable developer for your IT project

first_imgBy Alex GalaktionovEach business needs to be present on the internet via a website or a mobile app or, at best, an integrated software system, which provides both opportunities and advanced functionality for the users.Let’s find out how to choose a reliable developer for your software and not to waste money in vain. By the way, software development cost survey, dated July 2019 you can check here.Three main alternatives:creating in-house IT department,addressing a professional development agency,or hiring a freelancer.The pros and cons assessmentLet’s compare and see which one is the best in your particular case.In-house developmentGather your own team, which will be 100% involved in the project. They share the in-company values and transfer your ideas into life. Also, they share the same level of corporate knowledge about all the details.Pros:Concentration: your team works on your project exclusively, which assures proper focus, agreed timing and high results (if we are speaking about a team of professionals).Strong management: you are always in touch with the staff and top managers have good control over the employees.Confidentiality and loyalty: data leakage is not an issue because there are no third-parties involved. All the staff is working hard and supporting each other sharing the same corporate standards.Cons:Long-time development: it will take more time to hire, teach and make a team out of your new staff compared to the developers in an agency that work together for ages.High costs: forming a whole new department, including the creation of the working places and labour/salary expenditures will demand investment. For your team, you want to choose people with experience who are capable of quality performing. However, to hire the best of the best you will have to provide an additional motivation. The senior level in-house programmers and designers are usually very well-paid, if not to say overrated.Additional efforts for the staff control: not only does it take money but also demands time and management efforts. Resume: if  you can wait the first results for a year or so and your project is a long-term one and must be updated regularly, this might be the most suitable option.Outsource development agencySeems to be a relatively expensive way of software development. But you can be sure that the top IT firms do quality software development solutions and respect deadlines. Perfect for projects with high responsibility.Benefits:Comprehensive approach: the biggest plus of an IT agency is that they can take care of everything, starting from architecture and proceeding to design and quality control.Proven portfolio: every company has a name that you can track. It’s easier to check the portfolio and reviews and simple to contact some clients directly for their feedback. Speed of development: you can get your software as fast as you want, if you choose a large professional IT corporation.Value for money:  Working with a good development agency, you’ll get a great software, checked by quality assurance and worked out in accordance with the international development standards.Cons:High prices: cost per hour can be the highest among all the three options.Communication: it’s not your own team. The developers need more contribution from your side to get familiar with your ideas and understand your business.Some companies may limit your communication with the team, others are open and provide you with a personal manager to solve all your problems and collect your ideas on the go.In IT, a top-notch team can solve your task within weeks, when junior developers will need months to do the same. Their hourly rate may be lower but the difference lays in the result.The total cost for the project can be the same as in the case of the in-house development or even lower. If you do not intend to pay twice for rework of the low-quality code, created by a young programmer, cooperation with a proper development agency, is your first choice.FreelancerFinally, you can delegate your project to a freelancer. Usually, the cheapest way, though the riskiest.Advantages:Low price. Software and mobile development is a very competitive market, so a lot of individuals work at low prices.Swift development. Very often the developer dedicates 100% of time to your project, since time is money. So, you can get you website or application very quickly.Disadvantages:One freelancer cannot work as an IT team. One person simply cannot be a guru in everything. So, choosing a freelancer you either need to be ready to compromise on quality or hire several professionals and make them collab.Inexperienced developers. Often freelancers are young developers that are trying to make some money and gain experience for the portfolio. So, a cheap hourly rate may lead to a money or time loss for you.Lack of responsibility. The situation becomes less predictable: misunderstanding, failure to deliver on time, personal reasons not to finish the work at all can often appear when your developer works from home.When you are really short of money, plan carefully all the steps. Add 60% of time for the failures and you will have time to fix everything if your freelancer lets you down.Pay attention to reviews and choose only seasoned freelancers who got excellent ratings confirmed by hundreds of people.Save your money by negotiating the cost per project, not the rate per hour.Remember, the majority of the freelance projects demand code review. If you choose this option, invite some third-party experts to implement it before accepting the task.Here are some popular sites, where you can find freelancers: Upwork, Fiverr; social nets like LinkedIn and Facebook.How to make an objective choiceNo matter which one you choose, you need to follow these 2 simple rules:Study the portfolio, reviews and check out the mentionings on different resources.Set your business priorities.Find a balance between price and qualityWhen you make your project, you have to just accept one thing: you can’t get it all. It’s either high quality and fast but more expensive, or economical but with compromises on development speed and quality. You have to decide what you are trying to achieve to make the most reasonable choice.About authorAlex Galaktionov, the head of Magora’s International Sales in London, was born in 1990 and studied at Hogeschool Gent, Belgium.

Michigan House approves Olympic wrestling resolution

first_img Categories: News Rep. Tom Hooker testifies before the House Regulatory Reform Committee regarding his resolution calling on the International Olympic Committee to reinstate wrestling as a sport at the Summer Games. At right is Jim Scott, former head wrestling coach at Grand Valley State University and two-time national college wrestling coach of the year. Scott appeared before the committee along with Hooker to lend his support to the resolution.The Michigan House today sent a clear, unanimous message to the International Olympic Committee asking them to reinstate the sport of wrestling for the Summer Olympic Games. The committee earlier this year dropped wrestling from the official Olympic lineup, and many are hoping they will reconsider their decision when they reconvene in May.Rep. Tom Hooker authored House Resolution 78 to demonstrate strong support behind the public outcry over the elimination of wrestling from the Games. Hooker, who was a high school teacher and wrestling coach for 37 years, says he was taken aback by the decision to eliminate a sport with such a rich history.“Wrestling was one of the original sports of the ancient Greek Olympic Games and of the first modern Olympic Games,” said Hooker, R-Byron Center. “With its history and high participation rates, there are few sports, if any, that better epitomize the spirit of the Olympic Games than wrestling. I appreciate the support this movement has earned in the Legislature, and sincerely hope the committee will reverse its decision.”Hooker testified on his resolution before the House Regulatory Reform Committee on Tuesday and led discussion on the House floor today before asking for a roll call vote.Copies of the resolution will be transmitted to the International Olympic Committee as well as the U.S. Olympic Committee. 24Apr Michigan House approves Olympic wrestling resolutionlast_img read more
