first_imgGUATEMALA CITY – As some 3,000 Hondurans made their way through Guatemala, attention turned to Mexico, after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened Thursday to close the U.S.-Mexico border if authorities there fail to stop them — a nearly unthinkable move that would disrupt hundreds of thousands of legal freight, vehicle and pedestrian crossings each day.With less than three weeks before the Nov. 6 midterm elections, Trump seized on the migrant caravan to make border security a political issue and energize his Republican base.“I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught — and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!” Trump tweeted, adding that he blamed Democrats for what he called “weak laws!”The threat followed another one earlier this week to cut off aid to Central American countries if the migrants weren’t stopped. Trump made a similar vow over another large migrant caravan in April, but didn’t follow through and it largely petered out in Mexico.On Thursday, Mexico’s foreign ministry said the government was assisting members of the caravan who had already crossed into Mexican territory. It was explaining the options to migrants and helping those who chose to apply for refugee status to navigate the lengthy process.Mexico had also dispatched additional police to its southern border after the Casa del Migrante shelter on the Guatemalan side of the border reported that hundreds of Hondurans had already arrived there.Apparently pleased with that response, in the evening Trump retweeted a BuzzFeed journalist’s tweet of a video clip showing the police deployment, adding his own comment: “Thank you Mexico, we look forward to working with you!”Mexican federal police and immigration officials also detained immigration activist Irineo Mujica, who led a caravan of migrants through Mexico last spring.His organization Pueblo Sin Fronteras, or People without Borders, said via Twitter that he was arrested Thursday in Ciudad Hidalgo on the Mexico-Guatemala border while participating in a peaceful march.Mexican immigration officials said Mujica, who has dual U.S.-Mexican citizenship, was accused of property damage and resisting arrest. A statement from the officials said Mujica attacked immigration agents, as well as local and federal police, after he was asked for his identification as he gathered foreigners for a protest.Mexican officials had said the Hondurans would not be allowed to enter as a group and would either have to show a passport and visa — something few have — or apply individually for refugee status, a process that can mean waiting for up to 90 days for approval. They also said migrants caught without papers would be deported.Marcelo Ebrard, who is set to become foreign relations secretary when President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador takes office Dec. 1, said Trump’s tweets need to be understood in the context of the upcoming U.S. midterm elections.“The electoral process is very near, so he is making a political calculation,” Ebrard said in an interview with Radio Centro.Trump’s stance, he said, was “what he has always presented,” adding he saw “nothing surprising in it.”Current Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Videgaray was also sanguine and viewed things through the lens of U.S. politics.“Nobody likes them (Trump’s comments). There’s no reason to give them greater transcendence or importance,” Videgaray said from the United Nations where he sought the world body’s help processing asylum requests from the migrants. “What is important to us is the migrants, respect for human rights, their due protection, particularly the most vulnerable.”Still, the idea that Mexico could close its porous southern border — or that the United States would choke off the lucrative trade and other traffic between the two nations — strained the imagination.“There would be huge economic impacts for both the United States and Mexico … but limited effect on illegal immigration,” said Andrew Selee, president of the Migration Policy Institute.“The president certainly can slow down crossing at legal border crossings where about a million people cross each day. That would really hurt legal transit between the two countries and manufacturing and trade, which would affect American workers,” Selee said. “But it would have much less impact on illegal border crossings between ports of entry.”Stephanie Leutert, director of the Mexico Security Initiative at the University of Texas at Austin, said she interpreted the tweet to mean Trump could send troops not to ports of entry but elsewhere where the illegal crossings take place.“If that’s the case, I don’t think Mexico should be too worried because in a sense … it’s the same kind of thing U.S. administrations have been doing for a long time,” Leutert said.Like Guatemala and Honduras, Mexico is a country of many migrants, raising the question of whether the political will exists for a confrontation.Lopez Obrador wants to avoid repression against migrants and also to avoid angering the United States. He said this week that Mexico would offer jobs to Central Americans. “Anyone who wants to work in our country … will have a work visa,” he said.Juan Escobar, 24, said he had heard about Trump’s comments but said they would not dissuade the migrants from continuing their journey.“Only God on high can stop us,” Escobar said.Carlos Lopez, 27, said he was concerned by Trump’s threats, but “you have to keep fighting.”Trump also warned that he prioritizes border security over even the recently struck trade deal to replace NAFTA, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA.“The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border,” Trump tweeted.Analysts didn’t see the pact as being in imminent danger, though trade attorney Daniel Ujczo of Dickinson Wright PLLC said there is “a significant concern” Trump could hold the agreement hostage over future issues.“Leaders around the world are skeptical that any deal with this U.S. administration is actually final,” Ujczo said.U.S.-bound migrant caravans have been going on for years — with travelling in numbers seen as offering protection from assaults, robberies, even shakedowns by police. They’re also a cheaper alternative to the $7,000 to $10,000 that smugglers, charge for passage to the border, Leutert noted.Still, it wasn’t until this year that the caravans received widespread attention.“There have been these caravans through the years, but they become prominent because the president tweets about them,” Selee said.He predicted that, like the caravan in April, Mexico will respond with measures like granting asylum to some migrants who qualify while deporting others who don’t, perhaps not eliminating the caravan entirely but significantly reducing its size before it reaches the U.S. border.But the direct, public pressure from Trump puts Mexico, already an uneasy ally the last two years, in an uncomfortable spotlight.“Ironically, the way President Trump responds to these caravans makes it harder for the Mexican government to co-operate with the U.S. on immigration enforcement,” Selee said. “There is a lot of disposition in both the current and the incoming Mexican government to co-operate with the U.S. on some aspects of immigration control. But it becomes much harder when President Trump makes this a political issue in which he bashes Mexico.”___Orsi and Stevenson reported from Mexico City.

Steps have been taken to speed Norfolk’s application for federal-provincial funding for a new recreation centre in Simcoe.Norfolk council  has given the county’s recreation facilities advisory board permission to hire a consultant to assist with the preparation of a funding application.Council also has empowered the board to hire an architectural firm to prepare preliminary drawings that would help senior funding authorities assess Norfolk’s application.The provincial government announced in August a major funding program for recreational facilities. The deadline for applying is Nov. 12. With similar infrastructure programs in the past, the province and federal government have given priority to projects that are “shovel-ready.”Norfolk’s delegation to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario conference in Ottawa last month came away knowing that competition for the available millions will be fierce.Port Dover Coun. Amy Martin spoke of delegates lined up in hallways with portfolios and project proposals packaged ready to hand over to senior provincial ministers and bureaucrats.“We need to be ready to check all the boxes and cover it,” Martin said at council’s Sept. 17 meeting.Mayor Kristal Chopp said Norfolk must do something  to “push the envelope” and distinguish its application from the pack.“There are a number of applications that are all going for this limited pool of money,” she said.“Whatever we can do – if it’s a matter of spending a few thousands on an architect to prepare the most competitive application possible – this would be worthwhile.”Chopp said the county needs a design for the recreation centre that speaks to Norfolk’s strengths and unique attributes.“The selection of an architect has huge implications for this project.”Council approved in 2018 a $200,000 budget for preliminary work leading to a funding application. Of this, $30,000 has been spent so far.On Sept. 17, council directed the mayor, who is a member of the recreation facilities board, to vet all invoices arising from the board’s deliberations leading to a funding application this fall.Norfolk is exploring the possibility of building a new multi-use facility because much of the county’s recreational infrastructure in Simcoe is aging and in need of costly upgrades. A design has yet to be finalized but the facility council has in mind could cost about $50 million.The previous council passed a resolution stating that Norfolk’s support for a multi-use complex is contingent on securing funding from senior levels of government.MSonnenberg@postmedia.com read more

The report’s principle finding – that total foreign direct investment flows dipped to $735 billion – also notes that the largest downturn in a decade was concentrated in developed countries. This was largely due to a decrease in mergers and acquisitions among the most developed nations, coupled with uncertainties that pressured world markets following the 11 September terrorist attacks in the United States.Meanwhile, the World Investment Report 2002, launched in 80 countries today, finds only modest declines in flows to developing countries – down only about 14 per cent – and even a small increase to countries in Central and Eastern Europe of about 2 per cent. Investment in Latin America had declined for the second year in a row, led by Brazil, where privatization had played itself out, and Argentina, where there was a recession. Foreign investment in the Asia and Pacific region dropped in general, as China acceded to the World Trade Organization.Georg Kell, Executive-Head of the Global Compact and a top UN economics expert, said the UNCTAD report was the most comprehensive review of global investment trends and the best way to track the footprint of globalization. He told reporters at a press conference at UN Headquarters in New York that even though worldwide foreign direct investment flows had dropped, “transnational companies (TNCs) continue to expand their role in the global economy.”According to the report there were now about 65,000 TNCs, with over 850,000 affiliates employing more than 54 million people. Transnational corporations now account for one tenth of global gross domestic product (GDP). Policy liberalization, rapid technological change, lower transportation and communication costs as well as competitive pressure were all driving forces behind this trend, Mr. Kell added. But the Least-Developed Countries (LDCs), still received a minute portion of foreign investment, and required efforts beyond policy liberalization to attract more funds.”Markets bet on success,” Mr. Kell stressed, and sadly, “poor countries are often punished for being poor.” There were some countries that were stable and where governments did their level best to create an environment to attract investors, he noted, but investments were often not forthcoming. There was often also tariff discrimination against refined products from small, poor countries. read more

The report, launched by the UN Development Group (UNDG) along with the League of Arab States and the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), comes as Secretary-General convened a special event at UN Headquarters on achieving the MDGs, which world leaders have pledged to achieve by 2015. It noted that while the Arab region has made progress towards many of the Goals since 2010, progress has slowed since then and the major cause is the widespread impact of the ongoing conflict in Syria. “The crisis in Syria is a crisis for development across the Arab region,” said Sima Bahous, Chair of the UNDG in the Arab States Region and Director of the UN Development Programme (UNDP) Regional Bureau for Arab States. “The impact goes far beyond even the tragic and terrible widespread death and destruction in that country: it is also slowing the region’s progress on development,” she stated in a news release. In addition to claiming the lives of over 100,000 people, displacing millions and causing widespread damage and destruction, the crisis in Syria is also having a major impact on human development across the country, according to the report.It pointed out that the crisis has pushed at least three million of Syria’s 22 million people into poverty, while the country’s extreme poverty rate has climbed at least back to 8 per cent after having been virtually zeroed by 2007. School enrolment rates have plunged and access to health care has also significantly reduced, added the report, which comes in advance of a more detailed UNDP study to be released in October showing the impact of the Syrian crisis on development in Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. Also, the report stated that the overall climate of instability and insecurity in the Arab region is dragging on progress more broadly across the region. Economic activity has been slowed in Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen – countries which since 2011 have been pursuing complex political transitions. Over five million people across the Arab region have been pushed into unemployment since 2010. “In the case of Yemen, this slowdown comes atop already high poverty rates and deep challenges across the entire spectrum of development,” the news release stated. Over 10 million people in the country, nearly half of the total population, may be food insecure, according to the report. Instability also complicates an already dire degree of water scarcity, the report added. Yemen suffers from chronic shortages and may be the first Arab country to run out of water, possibly as early as 2015. As of June 2012, 12.7 million Yemenis lacked access to safe water or sanitation. The report also showed that many Arab countries are “off the path” to reach many important MDGs. Overall, the region lags behind on key targets, particularly those related to nutrition, food security, access to water and sanitation, and child and maternal mortality.Today’s report comes as world leaders gather in New York to discuss not only progress towards the MDGs but also a new global development agenda which will come after the Goals expire in 2015. The discussions will include options for reflecting the importance of peace and security in a new development framework.“The experience of the Arab region makes the linkage clear,” said Ms. Bahous. “Where there is no peace, there is no development; where there is no development, there can be no peace.” read more

New Center in Midtown Offers Mental Health Treatment instead of Jail Time

Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said the diversion program will save law enforcement time and money, since jailing the mentally ill doesn’t solve the larger problem.   “Our first responders take four hours or so off the street to book these folks in on a very minor offense, such as trespass,” said Ogg. Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said he’s seen an extreme case of one non-violent offender arrested some 50 times in a single year.“If we can turn their lives around now, when they’re committing these low-level offenses, before they turn into a violent criminal, I think it’s a win for us, their families and for everyone involved,” Acevedo said. The new diversion center was created through state and local funds.Since its soft opening in early September, 150 people have been treated.

Google wont read Gmail emails anymore for advertisement

first_imgGoogle won’t read Gmail emails anymore for advertisement by Martin Brinkmann on June 23, 2017 in Email – Last Update: June 26, 2017 – 36 commentsAccording to a new blog post on Google’s blog, Google will soon stop scanning emails on its Gmail email service for advertisement purposes.Gmail scans user emails on Gmail for a variety of purposes. These include to make sure that they don’t contain spam or malware, but also to use the information for advertising purposes.Privacy advocates have criticized Google for the practice, and Microsoft never failed to mention the fact and even used it in the company’s infamous Scroogled advertisement campaign.Google uses the information that it gains from the scans, and information that it has about the user from other sources, to display targeted advertisement to the user.Google states that in Gmail’s Terms of Service:Our automated systems analyze your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customized search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received, and when it is stored.Google’s Diane Greene, SVP Google Cloud, announced the change in a new blog post on the official Google blog on June 23, 2017.G Suite’s Gmail is already not used as input for ads personalization, and Google has decided to follow suit later this year in our free consumer Gmail service. Consumer Gmail content will not be used or scanned for any ads personalization after this change. This decision brings Gmail ads in line with how we personalize ads for other Google productsThe decision was not made by Google’s ad division, but by the company’s Cloud division. The rationale behind the decision is that Google’s Cloud division believes that organizations may not use Google’s services because of the privacy implications that go along with scanning emails for advertisement purposes.Google’s G Suite never displayed email scanning advertisement to users of the service, but Google believes that company decision makers may still have been confused by it.The outcome is positive for users of the free Gmail service: Google plans to stop scanning Gmail emails for advertisement purposes.This does not mean that the free Gmail won’t show advertisement. The ad selection process however will use other available sources of information to display ads to users on Gmail, for instance from searches or from YouTube activity.Google is playing catch-up to Amazon and Microsoft when it comes to Enterprise cloud services. Revenue of the company’s cloud division is on the rise; G Suite has more than 3 million users as of June 2017, and usage has doubled in the past year among large business customers according to the announcement.Now You: What’s your take on the announcement?  SummaryArticle NameGoogle won’t read Gmail emails anymore for advertisementDescriptionAccording to a new blog post on Google’s blog, Google will soon stop scanning emails on its Gmail email service for advertisement purposes.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Getting started with ProtonMail

first_imgGetting started with ProtonMail by Martin Brinkmann on November 24, 2017 in Email – 36 commentsProtonMail is a secure email service based in Switzerland featuring end-to-end encryption, and a strong focus on privacy and security.The service is available as a web version, and as applications for Android and iOS devices. The three core pillars of ProtonMail from a security and privacy point of view are support for end to end encryption, the service’s zero access architecture, and use of open source cryptography.Tip: Read our initial ProtonMail review which we published in 2014 as well.End to end encryption means that data is stored in encrypted format on ProtonMail’s servers, and that it is also encrypted when it is transferred. Messages between ProtonMail users are fully encrypted, a stark contrast to how regular email transmissions are handled (unless PGP or similar encryption is used).Data is encrypted on the client side so that ProtonMail cannot access emails and other content. Since data is encrypted and decrypted on the user device, ProtonMail and any third-party cannot access these emails because of that.Setting up a ProtonMail accountProtonMail supports a free limited account, and several paid accounts. All plans support the same security features which makes the free account an ideal plan to start with as you can use it to test the service ProtonMail offers. Upgrades to paid accounts are always an option.You get 500 Megabytes of storage with a free account, and a message limit of 150 messages per day. While storage may become an issue quickly, the number of messages should not.ProtonMail does not display ads or uses other forms of monetization to make money off of free users. The service does add a “Sent with ProtonMail Secure Email” to messages sent using free accounts however.The first paid account, Plus, raises the storage to 5 Gigabytes, adds four additional email addresses to the account, and enables email filters and autoresponder functionality. You do get  support for one custom address on top of that. It is available for $48 per year.Extras can be purchased by paid subscribers: Extra storage is available for $9 per year and Gigabyte, extra domains for $18 per year, and extra addresses for $9 per 5 addresses.SetupSetup is straightforward. I suggest you start by creating a free account, but you may select one of the paid plans during setup already.All you have to do then is to set the username and password that you want to use, and you are ready to go. You may add an alternative email as well, but that is optional.ProtonMail requires no verification whatsoever (email, mobile phone), and can be used right after you have set up the account.Using ProtonMailThe web interface of the email service supports two layouts that use three or two columns respectively. The three column layout displays mail folders, mails of the selected folder, and the active conversation in columns; the two column layout only the folders and either the active folder or the active conversation.You may want to do the following things during the initial setup:Open the Settings, and change the display name and add a signature.Disable daily email notifications.Decide whether you want to allow password resets. (this restores access to the account, but will make any email that is in the account up to that point unreadable).Enable Two-Password mode. This is a legacy mode which uses different passwords for login and mailbox encryption.Set “load embedded images” to manual.Check out the keyboard shortcuts, e.g. c to open compose, Ctrl-Enter to send messages, or / to focus the search field.Enable or disable email subscriptions (three out of four are enabled by default for free accounts).Enable Two-Factor Authentication under Settings > Security.Change the composer size and other layout related settings under Settings > Appearance.You can download the PGP key to your system under Settings > Keys. This key can then be imported into programs that support PGP so that you may access your emails on these devices as well.Closing wordsProtonMail is a secure email service that focuses on privacy and security. No one but the user has access to emails thanks to the service’s implementation of end to end encryption. The service does not display ads to you, and does not read emails either.The free version is good to take the service for a test ride, but it is somewhat limited. The inability to remove the “ad for Protonmail” when sending emails, and the limit to one address, no filters and no custom addresses need to be mentioned in this regard. The 500 Megabyte limit may also be reached quickly depending on how you use the service.The cheapest paid subscription is available for $48 per year; quite a bit of money especially since email is seen as something that is available for free by many Internet users. Still, if you don’t want someone else snooping on your emails, or that your emails are read online by robots or even human beings, you need end to end encryption for that.While you can set up PGP on your device and start using it, doing so may be too technical (still) for many users.Now You: Which email provider do you use, and why?Summary12345 Author Rating4 based on 6 votes Software Name ProtonMailSoftware Category EmailLanding Page https://protonmail.com Advertisementlast_img read more

Now You Can Join the Search for Killer Asteroids

first_imgPan-STARRS might never have gotten its observations online if NASA hadn’t seen its own future in the observatory’s massive data pileup. That 1.6-petabyte archive is now housed at the Space Telescope Science Institute, in Maryland, in a repository called the Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes. The Institute is also the home of bytes from Hubble, Kepler, GALEX, and 15 other missions, mostly belonging to NASA. “At the beginning they didn’t have any commitment to release the data publicly,” says White. “It’s such a large quantity they didn’t think they could manage to do it.” The Institute, though, welcomed this outsider data in part so it could learn how to deal with such huge quantities.The hope is that Pan-STARRS’s freely available data will make a big contribution to astronomy. Just look at the discoveries people publish using Hubble data, says White. “The majority of papers being published are from archival data, by scientists that have no connection to the original observations,” he says. That, he believes, will hold true for Pan-STARRS too.But surveys are beautiful not just because they can be shared online. They’re also A+ because their observations aren’t narrow. In much of astronomy, scientists look at specific objects in specific ways at specific times. Maybe they zoom in on the magnetic field of pulsar J1745–2900, or the hydrogen gas in the farthest reaches of the Milky Way’s Perseus arm, or that one alien spaceship rock. Those observations are perfect for that individual astronomer to learn about that field, arm, or ship—but they’re not as great for anything or anyone else. Surveys, on the other hand, serve everyone.“The Sloan Digital Sky Survey set the standard for these huge survey projects,” says White. Sloan, which started operations in 2000, is on its fourth iteration, collecting light with telescopes at Apache Point Observatory in New Mexico and Las Campanas Observatory in Northern Chile. From the early universe to the modern state of the Milky Way’s union, Sloan data has painted a full-on portrait of the universe that, like those creepy Renaissance portraits, will stick around for years to come. Kent, though, is also psyched about the idea of bringing the universe to more people, through the regular internet and more formal initiatives, such as one that has, among other projects, helped train students from the University of the West Indies and the University of the Virgin Islands to dig into the data.“There’s tons of data to go around,” says White. “And there’s more data than one person can do anything with. It allows people who might not use the telescope facilities to be able to be brought into the observatory.”No reservations required.More Great WIRED StoriesYouTube and Instagram tots are the new child starsPHOTOS: Wildlife and humans collide on a grand scaleWith its new 911, Porsche improves the unimprovable‘Fair’ algorithms can perpetuate discriminationMeth, guns, pirates: The coder who became a crime boss👀 Looking for the latest gadgets?

Sign up for our daily newsletter and never miss our latest and greatest stories By watching for quick changes in their observations, astronomers have sought and found comets, asteroids, supernovae, fast radio bursts, and gamma-ray bursts. As they keep capturing a cosmos that evolves, moves, and bursts forth—not one trapped forever in whatever pose they found it—who knows what else they’ll unearth. If you want to watch sunrise from the national park at the top of Mount Haleakala, the volcano that makes up around 75 percent of the island of Maui, you have to make a reservation. Being at 10,023 feet, the summit provides a spectacular—and very popular, ticket-controlled—view.Just about a mile down the road from the visitors’ center sits “Science City,” where civilian and military telescopes curl around the road, their domes bubbling up toward the sky. Like the park’s visitors, they’re looking out beyond Earth’s atmosphere—toward the Sun, satellites, asteroids, or distant galaxies. And one of them, called the Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System, or Pan-STARRS, just released the biggest digital astro-dataset ever, amounting to 1.6 petabytes, the equivalent of around 500,000 HD movies.From its start in 2010, Pan-STARRS has been watching the 75 percent of the sky it can see from its perch and recording cosmic states and changes on its 1.4-billion-pixel camera. It even discovered the strange ‘Oumuamua, the interstellar object that a Harvard astronomer has suggested could be an alien spaceship. Now, as of late January, anyone can access all of those observations, containing phenomena astronomers don’t yet know about and that—hey, who knows—you could beat them to discovering.Big surveys like this one, which watch swaths of sky agnostically rather than homing in on specific stuff, represent a big chunk of modern astronomy. They are an efficient, pseudo-egalitarian way to collect data, uncover the unexpected, and allow for discovery long after the lens cap closes. With better computing power, astronomers can see the universe not just as it was and is but also as it’s changing, by comparing, say, how a given part of the sky looks on Tuesday to how it looks on Wednesday. Pan-STARRS’s latest data dump, in particular, gives everyone access to the in-process cosmos, opening up the “time domain” to all earthlings with a good internet connection. Pan-STARRS, like all projects, was once just an idea. It started around the turn of this century, when astronomers Nick Kaiser, John Tonry, and Gerry Luppino, from Hawaii’s Institute for Astronomy, suggested that relatively “modest” telescopes—hooked to huge cameras—were the best way to image large skyfields.Today, that idea has morphed into Pan-STARRS, a many-pixeled instrument attached to a 1.8-meter telescope (big optical telescopes may measure around 10 meters). It takes multiple images of each part of the sky to show how it’s changing. Over the course of four years, Pan-STARRS imaged the heavens above 12 times, using five different filters. These pictures may show supernovae flaring up and dimming back down, active galaxies whose centers glare as their black holes digest material, and strange bursts from cataclysmic events. “When you visit the same piece of sky again and again, you can recognize, ‘Oh, this galaxy has a new star in it that was not there when we were there a year or three months ago,” says Rick White, an astronomer at the Space Telescope Science Institute, which hosts Pan-STARRS’s archive. In this way, Pan-STARRS is a forerunner of the massive Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, or LSST, which will snap 800 panoramic images every evening, with a 3.2-billion-pixel camera, capturing the whole sky twice a week.Plus, by comparing bright dots that move between images, astronomers can uncover closer-by objects, like rocks whose path might sweep uncomfortably close to Earth.That latter part is not just interesting to scientists, but to the military too. “It’s considered a defense function to find asteroids that might cause us to go extinct,” says White. That’s (at least part of) why the Air Force, which also operates a satellite-tracking system on Haleakala, pushed $60 million into Pan-STARRS’s development. NASA, the state of Hawaii, a consortium of scientists, and some private donations ponied up the rest. But when the telescope first got to work, its operations hit some snags. Its initial images were about half as sharp as they should have been, because the system that adjusted the telescope’s mirror to make up for distortions wasn’t working right.Also, the Air Force redacted parts of the sky. It used software called “Magic” to detect streaks of light that might be satellites (including the US government’s own). Magic masked those streaks, essentially placing a dead-pixel black bar across that section of sky, to “to prevent the determination of any orbital element of the artificial satellite before the images left the [Institute for Astronomy] servers,” according to a recent paper by the Pan-STARRS group. In December 2011, the Air Force “dropped the requirement,” says the article. The magic was gone, and the scientists reprocessed the original raw data, removing the black boxes.The first tranche of data, from the world’s most substantial digital sky survey, came in December 2016. It was full of stars, galaxies, space rocks, and strangeness. The telescope and its associated scientists have already found an eponymous comet, crafted a 3D model of the Milky Way’s dust, unearthed way-old active galaxies, and spotted everyone’s favorite probably-not-an-alien-spaceship, ’Oumuamua.The real deal, though, entered the world late last month, when astronomers publicly released and put online all the individual snapshots, including auto-generated catalogs of some 800 million objects. With that dataset, astronomers and regular people everywhere (once they’ve read a fair number of help-me files) can check out a patch of sky and see how it evolved as time marched on. The curious can do more of the “time domain” science Pan-STARRS was made for: catching explosions, watching rocks, and squinting at unexplained bursts. Over in a different part of New Mexico, on the high Plains of San Agustin, radio astronomers recently set the Very Large Array’s sights on a new survey. Having started in 2017, the Very Large Array Sky Survey is still at the beginning of its seven years of operation. But astronomers don’t have to wait for it to finish its observations, as happened with the first Pan-STARRS survey. “Within several days of the data coming off the telescope, the images are available to everybody,” says Brian Kent, who, since 2012, has worked on the software that processes the data. Which is no small task: For every four hours of skywatching, the telescope spits out 300 gigabytes, which the software then has to make useful and usable. “You have to put the collective smarts of the astronomers into the software,” he says.Kent is excited about the same kinds of time-domain discoveries as White is: about seeing the universe at work rather than as a set of static images. Including the chronological dimension is hot in astronomy right now, from these surveys to future instruments like the LSST and the massive Square Kilometre Array, a radio telescope that will spread across two continents.last_img read more

Interesting facts about Youth Day

first_imgToday is June 16 and that means young and old across South Africa will be out and about celebrating this public holiday known as Youth Day.So, in celebration, here are some facts for you to think about!1. Youth Day is to commemorate the Soweto Uprising of June 16, 1976. This incident is when students of various Sowetan schools began a protest in the streets of Soweto against Bantu Education – the introduction of the Afrikaans language as a medium of instruction in those schools.2. Youth Day was initially known as Soweto Day among the supporters of the ANC, but it was officially made a public holiday after Nelson Mandela became president in 1994.The  government at that time then chose to call it Youth Day to commemorate the role that the youth played in overcoming the apartheid regime.3. Hector Pieterson was one of the first students to be killed in the uprising and became an icon of the uprising. WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite It was the photo above that was taken by Sam Nzima that made Hector the icon of the uprising.4. While Youth Day is celebrated annually in South Africa on June 16, International Youth Day falls on August 12.5. Nearly 700 people, mostly adolescents, were murdered by the apartheid government’s police.Click to receive news links via WhatsApp. Or  for the latest news, visit our webpage or follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Join us there!last_img read more

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton

first_imgSan Francisco 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton (11) cannot catch a pass in front of Arizona Cardinals cornerback Jerraud Powers (25) during the first half of an NFL football game in Santa Clara, Calif., Sunday, Nov. 29, 2015. (AP Photo/Tony Avelar) 5 Comments   Share   Powers returns against an Eagles team that’s won two in a row, putting them back in the thick of the NFC East playoff race.Philadelphia likes to run an up-tempo offense, which places pressure on opposing defenses.Powers, though, sounded more concerned about what awaits the Cardinals weather-wise rather than football-wise.Temperatures are forecast to be in the upper 30s to low 40s at game time.“I care. I do. I’m from Alabama,” he said, drawing laughter. “I would rather it not be (cold). Like I thought today was freezing at practice. I had on a hoody, a warm jacket under my hoody and a t-shirt and some sweats, at that, so I thought it was freezing.“Once the kickoff starts and you get to running around a little bit, you kind of don’t notice the temperature until you come back out of halftime and you realize how cold it still is. But once we get out there playing the temperature and the body heat and all that stuff, it won’t be a factor.” “He played great. He definitely earned it, too. He’s worked hard,” Powers said.  “I was happy to see him get that shot. He’s been waiting to get that shot for a long time, so I was happy that he was able to prove people that he can play corner. He’s not just a special teams guy, so hopefully he can get that he’s a special teams-type guy tag off his name a little bit. He made some plays the last couple of games at corner and hopefully he continues to build (on that) and continues to make plays for us.”As good as Bethel played, however, Arians made it clear Powers would regain his starting gig, if healthy.For Powers, the Cardinals’ eighth-leading tackler, the time off may have been a blessing.“I didn’t want to be hurt, but when you are hurt it kind of gives you time to catch your breath a little bit, regather your thoughts, get your body right the way it needs to be, especially in the stretch that we’re heading into. These last three games are very important, this one in particular. We can clinch our division which is big,” he said.“I don’t want to say it was a two-week bye just because (the training staff) had me in (the facility) doing some of everything, but it was almost like a few days just to get your mind right and get ready to go.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact That’s certainly good news, especially considering their other starting cornerback, Patrick Peterson, did not practice Wednesday. He was out with an ankle injury, as was starting safety Rashad Johnson.Arians, though, didn’t appear too concerned about either’s status moving forward.Powers, meanwhile, returned to practice, albeit on a limited basis.  He had missed the past two weeks with a strained calf he suffered in the third quarter at San Francisco.“It’s important. Any of our core guys, we want those guys on the field,” safety Tyrann Mathieu said, referring to Powers. “He helps us out a lot. I know me personally he helps me out a bunch, so just having him on the field with me takes a lot of stress off of me.”The two-week absence felt more like two months, according to Powers.And, yes, sitting and watching was frustrating, Powers admitted, but at no point did he feel a need to rush back because, “we got guys that can play and guys have been playing well in the secondary.”It was Justin Bethel who stepped in for Powers.Bethel played every defensive snap (118 total) in his back-to-back starts, registering three tackles and two passes defensed against St. Louis and a career-high seven tackles against Minnesota. Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo TEMPE, Ariz. – Ask Arizona Cardinals cornerback Jerraud Powers if he is playing this week and he answers emphatically.“I’ll be out there for sure; yeah, I’ll be out there for sure,” he said Wednesday after practice.Now ask the head coach the same question.“I feel good about Jerraud,” Bruce Arians said.OK, it certainly sounds as if the Cardinals will get their starting cornerback back Sunday when they visit the Philadelphia Eagles in yet another primetime affair.last_img read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Washington RedskinsThe next place that Murray is scheduled to visit is with the Redskins, which is strange considering that Washington doesn’t pick until No. 15 overall.Source: Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray will take a ’30’ visit to the Redskins next week. As @RapSheet said, he’s with their NFC East rivals, the Giants, now.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 11, 2019The fit is evident, though, as the Redskins are in the market for a long-term quarterback option after starter Alex Smith suffered a gruesome leg injury late last season that left his status up in the air.They would more than likely need to trade up to have a chance at Murray, but deals from that far down are not without precedent. Just three years ago, the Rams moved up from No. 15 to the top spot in a deal with the Titans, giving up two first-, second- and third-round picks in the process.Like the Giants, the Redskins are also a potential landing spot for Rosen, and have been cited by some as the team most likely to land him if the Cardinals do decide to move him.

Longtime quarterback Eli Manning is in the last year of his contract, and they need to find his replacement soon.They had previously been a popular destination for Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins in most mock drafts, but many experts have started to believe that they will hold off on drafting a quarterback until next season.The Giants have also been listed as a potential favorite to land Josh Rosen in a trade if the Cardinals decide to take Murray and move on from the No. 10 overall pick from just a year ago.
