Principe de précaution Claude Allègre crée une fondation pour sy opposer

first_imgPrincipe de précaution : Claude Allègre crée une fondation pour s’y opposerFrance – Après que Chantal Jouanno a plaidé en faveur d’un encadrement permettant d’éclaircir les conditions d’application du principe de précaution (voir article), Claude Allègre a décidé de créer une fondation via laquelle il s’attaque à un principe qu’il juge être “une arme contre le progrès”.Après s’être vivement attaqué aux thèses des experts quant à l’impact réel de l’activité humaine sur le réchauffement climatique, l’ancien ministre de l’Éducation a selon le journal Mediapart, lancé une fondation baptisée “Écologie d’avenir”. A travers cette fondation, Claude Allègre s’attaque au principe de précaution, et entend fédérer autour d’elle des personnalités, et notamment les représentants de grandes entreprises, afin qu’ils diffusent ses idées.Officiellement entériné en 1992 dans la convention de Rio, le principe de précaution provient plus spécifiquement du droit de l’environnement, et concerne notamment le réchauffement climatique ainsi que certains champs de droit scientifique. Il fut notamment appliqué lors de l’affaire du sang contaminé ou de la vache folle. Aucune définition précise n’existe pour ce principe. “L’absence de certitudes, compte tenu des connaissances scientifiques et techniques du moment, ne doit pas retarder l’adoption de mesures effectives et proportionnées visant à prévenir un risque de dommages graves et irréversibles à l’environnement à un coût économiquement acceptable” est-il inscrit dans la loi française de 1995, dite loi Barnier.Alors que Claude Allègre considère le principe de précaution comme “une arme contre le progrès”, Arnaud Gossement, porte-parole du réseau TPAMPP (Touche pas à mon principe de précaution), estime que “cette initiative démontre la vigueur des mouvements écolo-sceptiques qui semblent vouloir prendre une revanche après la période du Grenelle de l’environnement”.Le 5 juillet 2010 à 17:23 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio.  Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio.

Volvo Taking our dogs on a trip is one of the many joys of having a furry friend, and for those outside of walking distance to parks, ice cream parlors or other hot destinations for dog moms and dads, the car is the best option. However, it’s probably best to keep the dog restrained in some fashion and not let loose in the back seat. Volvo and The Harris Poll released a new study that looked at the effects of driving with an unrestrained dog and one that was restrained. While it may sound cruel, it’s actually good for dogs. A key highlight was decreased stress not only for the driver, but also for the dog.The study found that unrestrained dogs had a heart rate seven beats per minute faster than dogs that were restrained in some form. Drivers saw heart rates plunge by up to 34 beats per minute. Naturally, a lower heart rate corresponds with less stress.And while many may say their dogs are totally well behaved in the car, there was no denying the link between unrestrained dogs and distracted driving. While following 15 drivers over 30 hours of driving with their dogs, those who kept their dogs unrestrained were distracted for a total of 3 hours and 39 minutes. Compared that to the 1 hour and 39 minutes drivers with restrained dogs clocked and the evidence is clear.Not to mention, should the worst happen and the driver is involved in a crash, having the dog restrained can keep our pets safer. A whopping 77% of Americans surveyed said people don’t take dog safety seriously when traveling in the car. 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison: A tougher off-roader 52 Photos 3 81 Photos Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index.

Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker.

first_imgMohan BabuTwitterSenior actor Mohan Babu is the latest Tollywood celeb to take a dig at Nara Chandrababu Naidu after Ram Gopal Varma (RGV). He said that the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister cheated NT Rama Rao and his sons.Mohan Babu is known for his long association with the late NT Rama Rao and he campaigned for the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and consequently joined the party in 1982. He received a nomination for Rajya Sabha as a member of parliament representing Andhra Pradesh in 1995. He is not returning to politics after a gap of two decades.The senior Telugu actor recently joined Jagan Mohan Reddy-led YSR Congress Party (YCP). Now, he started campaigning for the party in Mangalagiri, where TDP general secretary Nara Lokesh is contesting. Mohan Babu urged voters to bring the party to the power in the Assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh. He launched a direct attack on incumbent Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu. Mohan Babu, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and Vishnu ManchuTwitterKick-starting the campaign in Mangalagiri, Mohan Babu alleged, “I had been with the TDP much before Naidu came into the party. His political foundation was the Congress party and he had even boasted that he would contest against his father-in-law NTR. Later, he made NTR helpless by grabbing the party.”Mohan Babu added that late NT Rama Rao’s sons were innocent and they were not aware of political conspiracies. But N Chandrababu Naidu cheated them and used them in dethroning the actor-turned-politician. However, the party workers affections towards NTR has helped the TDP sustain all these years.Mohan Babu also spoke about the corruption in the state and said that it has reached a new high during the regime of Chandrababu Naidu, whose fellow leaders looted everything including sand and soil. He has been cheating the people with his false promises and he should not be voted for power in this elections.last_img read more

Priyanka Gandhi spends sleepless night in Kerala irritated by palm civet

first_imgCongress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi stooped down to pick up the shoe of an injured journalist.TwitterPriyanka Gandhi, the general secretary of AICC (All India Congress Committee) is now busy with the election campaign of her brother Rahul Gandhi who is competing from the Wayanad constituency in Kerala. The charming politician who reached Kerala on Wednesday (April 3) night completed the campaign in a very impressive manner, but her sleep was spoiled by a palm civet that lived on the roofs of the West Hill guest house.As per a news report published in Mathrubhumi, Priyanka Gandhi went to bed at about 11.30 pm after a busy election campaigning day. However, at around 02.30 am in the night, Priyanka woke up from her bed after hearing continuous noises from the roof of her room. She soon informed the security officers around and they found that a palm civet is creating all the ruckus.Priyanka also complained that the stinking smell of the palm civet running over the roof is irritating her much. Soon, the West Hill guest house witnessed some dramatic events, as police officials tried to hunt down the palm civet that disrupted the sleep of the national leader.Even though a team of police officers tried their best to catch the palm civet, it escaped the hunting spree very cleverly. This compelled police officers to think of arranging a staying facility to Priyanka Gandhi in the Ravis hotel. Special branch soon got necessary instructions from the top to make all necessary arrangements to transfer Priyanka to the hotel. In the meantime, the palm civet escaped from the rooftop, and finally, Priyanka decided to stay in the guest house itself.However, at the end of all these dramatic events, time was already 04.30 am, and Priyanka decided not to sleep in the early morning hours. At around 06.00 am, she became ready and joined Rahul Gandhi for the election campaign.last_img read more

Spotifys Daniel Ek Talks Royalties DataSharing the Future I Was Never a

first_imgCan it be a sustainable future for them?I think we are in the process of creating a more fair and equal music industry than it’s ever been in the past. So I’ll take an example like, back in 2000, 2001, at the very, very peak of the music industry, peak of CD [sales], our estimate is that there were about 20,000 to maybe 30,000 artists that could live on being recorded music artists — they could be touring, they could be doing other things, and the number could be far greater than that. But there were only like 20-30,000 that could sustain themselves [on earnings from recorded music]. Why? Well, because, again the distribution costs so much, which ended up being that there’s very few artists that could even get distributed to begin with. And because the costs were fairly high for a person buying the music, you ended up going with what you knew and wouldn’t take that much risk on unknown artists. So in the world with streaming, what’s really interesting is the alternative cost for you to listen to something new is virtually zero. It’s just your time. And because of that, you do listen to a lot more music than you did before and you listen to a bigger diversity of artists than you did before which in turn then grows the music industry.Can you talk about Spotify customer data. What do you have and what do you do with it?Well, what we do with it now is very tightly regulated because we’re originally a European company and in Europe, I believe, five or six years ago there was a new initiative called G.D.P.R. that officially became a law last year. And obviously we’re complying with that, and what it basically says is that all the data that we have around you as a customer, you need to be able to ask us for it and we need to deliver it back to you. You need to have an opportunity for it getting deleted by us.What are your abilities to monetize that data to third parties?Well our ability to monetize it is obviously based on the contract that we have with our users, so obvious things like that would be what kind of genre of music are you listening to, what’s your age, what’s your demographics. And those are things that advertisers can target against. But I want to work with the music industry. I was never a disrupter. That’s the big misunderstanding about me. I believe the record companies are important and will be important in the future. But we believe we can be the R & D arm for the music industry, that we can develop better tools and technology to allow them to be more efficient and thereby creating more, better solutions for them and for artists.Can you give an example of how the efficiency happens?Well, one of the hardest problems right now for an artist is to get heard. One of the biggest platforms to be heard at would be Spotify, right? So today the primary tool that an artist has to get heard on Spotify besides putting the music on there is getting known by one of our editors. So in a weird way, like, while we want to democratize music, we’ve kind of become gatekeepers as well. So the question is can we develop tools that enables artists to promote their music more efficiently just by themselves on the platform. And that could be in the form of being able to talk to their existing superfans that are on the platform. It could be in the form of better promotional tools for record companies in how they pitch music and get the music out there.Are there still holes in the Spotify music library that you really want to fix?There are. But obviously by now the holes that we have are probably more regional holes than the fact of like the big ones. I’m sure that there are — Garth Brooks being probably the best-known example right now. But most of it is really about you know, old music, getting the archives up. I’m very proud that we did that deal with the BBC a few years ago where we’re now bringing the entire archive onto streaming. Same with Deutsche Grammophon, the German equivalents as well.So would you ever consider in a case like Garth Brooks — I mean, I’m sure you’re going to say no to this, because it would be illegal — but would you ever consider saying, “Look, we’re Spotify, we’re just going to put the music there,” and then he will see how well it does?No. We’ve never done that. It kind of goes against the ethos of what it is we’re trying to do. I mean, again, when we started, that was like the modus operandi. A lot of these services where people just uploaded all the music and then they figured out the problem later on. That was never the approach that we took. Related Popular on Variety Since Spotify launched in the U.S. in 2011, there’s rarely been a month, or even a week that the company or its founder have not been in the news — whether in a positive light (Spotify essentially led the streaming revolution that has saved the music industry) or a negative one (songwriters and publishers, among others, have long complained that the service doesn’t pay enough). Through it all, Ek has calmly articulated his rosy vision for the futures of his company and the music industry, while sidestepping discussion about some of the knottier issues that have come with the adaptation of streaming — such as how Spotify, which loses hundreds of millions of dollars a year and will for a long time to come, will ever become profitable.Not surprisingly, he didn’t directly address any of those issues — or the company’s latest public black eye, its appeal of the Copyright Royalty Board’s decision to increase songwriter rates — in his latest forum for a rare interview, a Freaknomics Radio podcast. While he talked a lot — the complete transcript of the podcast is nearly 10,000 words long — he’s said a lot of it before, so following is a heavily edited highlight reel of the more substantive parts of the conversation. How do you define Spotify’s mission?Daniel Ek: So the way I think about our mission is to inspire human creativity by enabling a million artists to be able to live off of their art and a billion people to be able to enjoy and be inspired by it. … I think we are in the process of creating a more fair and equal music industry than it’s ever been in the past [note: he does not elaborate] … The industry is really kind of changing. And we’re obviously a huge part not so much in the change but just being a participant in that dialogue about where it’s going, what is the role of a manager, what’s the role of a label, what’s the role of an agent, what’s the role of a publisher. Because all of those roles are kind of right now moving along as the industry is becoming more and more digital.From what I gather, Spotify has little leverage, or maybe even interest, in how [labels] distribute royalties to their artists, correct?We have nothing to do with that. What we are trying to do, however, because this is such a dramatic shift in an economic model for artists, one of the big things was how do we educate people about this. Because really even the iTunes model was fairly simple: I’m selling my goods and, you know, I’m getting X for it. We can argue what X should be, but it’s really that. Here with streaming it’s like I’m getting a revenue share of something and it’s streaming, and it looks like it’s a very small number per stream. But what is a million streams? Is a million streams a lot? Is it a little? Is it, you know — how should I think about it? That ended up being a very, very big shift.Are you saying that independent artists are, over time via Spotify, gaining leverage in the revenue ecosystem?Right. And why was that? Do you consider yourself a particularly ethical person?Well, I don’t like to say that we’re more ethical than other people. It just felt like the right thing to do. And I believed that the problem for the music industry with the past had been just that fact that it always felt like it was people who wanted to disrupt the existing music industry. I don’t believe that the music industry has to be disrupted. I believe it has to be evolved. So we like to work with them as partners. That’s always been our approach. There isn’t music on Spotify that the copyright owner haven’t authorized us.If you weren’t doing this now — what would you be doing?I would probably do something in health care — it’s a weird revelation because if you’d asked me 10 years ago, I wouldn’t have said that. But right now it’s like … people always said, “Oh, Spotify is so amazing,” and my response was always, “Well, it’s not saving lives, but it’s good.” So a few years ago I was thinking to myself, “Why am I not saving lives, and what would I do if I did that?” I think in healthcare a lot of technology currents are starting to play out — and it’s not just about the sort of digital part of these things. It’s the advancement in biotech overall, CRISPR, proactive medicine. Like it’s going to be the next decade or two decades, I think, we’re fundamentally moving from a place where we will look at doctors or the way we treated people like it’s almost witchcraft two decades from now. And so we’ll just know a lot more. And that’s fascinating to think about the implications that that will have. And how well do you monetize that currently?We monetize some of those aspects, of course, like any normal ad platform. It’s very important though to note that we’re not selling any customer data.That’s what I’m asking. So there are ads on the Spotify platform.Yes.You’d be fools not to target those to listeners based on their demographics and their listening tendencies.Of course.But you do have a lot of data that would be valuable to third parties?Oh yeah, massive amounts, but not even just like for other advertisers. But you can imagine even for the music industry, there’s tons of data about like how their songs are performing or other people’s songs might be performing that could inform them about what they’re doing. We’ve taken the stance that we don’t monetize the data itself at all. We don’t sell the data.Why?Well, I think it’s an important one for us that users should be able to rely on us not — my fundamental view is it’s their data. If we can use the data in order to make the Spotify experience better, then all good and great. And I think many users would say yeah, I agree with that. But because now of G.D.P.R., which I do think is the right step, we can argue about like was it the right implementation of it and all those things. But I do think it’s great for customers that there’s something like G.D.P.R. there. And you can delete the data. You can also opt out of specific things that we are gathering about you and say, hey I don’t want you to know X or Y.You’ve spoken in the past about five and ten-year plans. Where are you right now?I’m in year two now of a ten-year commitment.What did you see in the future of Spotify that you thought was going to be excitingly challenging for 10 years?Well there’s really two things. The first and more important one is really from the inception of Spotify, the assumption was that we would solve the user problem — get people to listen in a much better way and then they’ll contribute back to the music industry. The core assumption was that the music industry would take care of all the other things — how people get signed, how they get heard. And I realized that that just didn’t happen. So we’re largely doing business the same way as we were doing 10 years ago, [although] there’s been some evolution of that.

British Airways faces 229 million fine over data breach

first_img Monday, July 8, 2019 Tags: British Airways, GDPR << Previous PostNext Post >> British Airways faces $229 million fine over data breach Share LONDON — British Airways is facing a 183 million-pound ($229 million) fine over a breach that compromised information on half a million customers – the biggest penalty to date under new, tougher regulations and one that is likely to be seen as a test case for companies that fail to secure big data caches.Britain’s Information Commissioner proposed the fine on Monday, months after BA revealed it had been the victim of a hack. The scam saw customers diverted to a fake website where credit card details were harvested by the attackers.“People’s personal data is just that – personal. When an organization fails to protect it from loss, damage or theft it is more than an inconvenience,” Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham said. “That’s why the law is clear – when you are entrusted with personal data you must look after it.”The regulator said that the proposed fine – equivalent to 1.5% of the airline’s annual revenue – is the biggest it has ever imposed. It comes about a year after European Union member states began implementing the most sweeping change in data protection rules in a generation.More news:  Visit Orlando unveils new travel trade tools & agent perksThe General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR for short, is designed to make it easier for EU residents to give and withdraw permission for companies to use personal information _ but also forces companies that hold data to be accountable for looking after it. Authorities can fine companies up to 4% of annual revenue or 20 million euros ($22.5 million), whichever is higher, for breaching the rules.The Information Commissioner’s Office says its investigation of BA found that “poor security arrangements” compromised login, payment card, and travel booking details as well as name and address information.The parent company of BA, International Airlines Group, said it would fight the proposed fine. It has 28 days to make its case in the first step of the process, which could take some time to complete.“We intend to take all appropriate steps to defend the airline’s position vigorously, including making any necessary appeals,” said IAG CEO Willie Walsh.The proposed fine is the largest for the ICO since telling Facebook to pay 500,000 pounds ($663,000) for allowing the political consultancy Cambridge Analytica to forage through the personal dataof millions of unknowing Facebook users.More news:  Virgin Voyages de-activates Quebec accounts at FirstMates agent portalBut the Facebook matter took place before the new GDPR rules came into effect and was the maximum penalty at the time of the incidents.Monday’s announcement is a watershed moment for Denham’s office, in that it marks the first major foray into what happens under the new legislation when information authorities accuse well-meaning companies of falling short in data protection regimes.The proposed BA fine could particularly worry companies that use lots of data, even though their business concerns something else, such as flying planes. These companies have to really open themselves to securing their data despite the cost or face scary fines, said Emily Taylor, CEO of Oxford Information Labs, a cyber security consultancy.“(The information commissioner’s office) are going for a very big signal to the entire marketplace,” Taylor said. “This is the message: Get your information security house in order.” By: The Associated Presslast_img read more

Brazil police arrest Lula aide in widening corruption probe

first_imgRelated posts:In a hideaway for Brazil’s rich and famous, a new scandal emerges Lula’s bridge to nowhere hints at global reach of Brazil graft Brazil corruption: Ruling party heavyweight sentenced to 15 years in prison Brazil billionaire Andre Esteves arrested in Petrobras probe Related: Latin America’s anti-corruption crusadeRIO DE JANEIRO — Brazilian police arrested José Dirceu, who served as chief of staff under former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, saying he helped put into place an alleged system of kickbacks at the state-run oil company.The “operation goes beyond José Dirceu as a recipient and a beneficiary,” federal police investigator Carlos Fernando dos Santos Lima said at a press conference in Curitiba. The probe “seeks José Dirceu as an instituter of the Petrobras scheme even as he was chief of staff.”The investigation into inflated contracts at Petrobras has roiled Latin America’s largest nation since allegations spread from oil executives to builders and politicians, drawing closer to the ruling Workers’ Party. The latest allegations come as Lula’s protege, President Dilma Rousseff, labors to rebuild support in Congress as her popularity languishes amid an economic downturn.Police carried out 40 court orders in the 17th phase of the “Carwash” probe on Monday. Dirceu received at least 35 million reais ($10.2 million) through his consulting firm JD Assesoria e Consultoria in connection with suspect contracts, Santos Lima said at the press conference.Dirceu, once one of the most powerful figures in the Workers’ Party, will be held under preventive detention. He is serving the remainder of a prison term under house arrest for his role in a previous cash-for-votes scandal known as the “Mensalão,” or “big monthly payment.” His lawyer, Roberto Podval, was unavailable to comment immediately after the press conference.During Lula’s administration, Dirceu was responsible for approving appointments within Petrobras and accepted the indication of Renato Duque to head the company’s engineering and services division, Santos Lima said. Duque then implemented the framework of contractors paying kickbacks in exchange for works in that division, he said.More than 50 politicians are being investigated as part of the Petrobras probe, including former President Fernando Collor, who had cars including a Lamborghini and Ferrari seized in police raids in July. The Workers’ Party’s former treasurer, João Vaccari, remains under arrest, and Lula is under investigation for alleged influence peddling in a separate case. Both have denied wrongdoing.After allegations that lower house President Eduardo Cunha received kickbacks in connection with a Petrobras contract last month, he announced that he was joining the opposition to Rousseff’s government. He, too, has denied wrongdoing.Standard & Poor’s cited “political uncertainties” stemming from the investigation among reasons for cutting Brazil’s credit outlook to negative last week. Congress returns from recess this week.Dirceu’s arrest comes after Rousseff’s disapproval rating fell to a new low of 15.3 percent in July from 18.9 percent in March, according to a July 12-16 MDA poll published by the National Transport Confederation. Her government has an even lower approval rating — 7.7 percent — and is bracing for a mass street demonstration scheduled for Aug. 16.Brazilian policymakers are facing the fastest inflation in more than a decade and the prospect of the deepest recession in a quarter-century. Brazil will contract 1.8 percent this year as consumer-price increases reach 9.25 percent in December, according to a central bank survey of analysts published on Aug. 3.See also: In a hideaway for Brazil’s rich and famous, a new scandal emerges© 2015, Bloomberg News Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Arizona went three-and-out on its first five drives of the game before falling behind 17-0 and putting together a 17-play, 84-yard drive — two big Bills penalties kept it alive — that spanned 9:20 and ended with a David Johnson touchdown run. The Cardinals trailed 17-7 at halftime.Through three games, Arizona has fallen behind 10-0 against the New England Patriots, was in a scoreless tie the next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and then trailed the Bills in Week 3.

(AP Photo/Bill Wippert) It was an especially ugly brand of football to start.“That’s unacceptable,” head coach Bruce Arians told Arizona Sports 98.7 FM’s Paul Calvisi after the final three quarter likewise didn’t go Arizona’s way in a 33-18 loss. “That’s the slowest in four years.”Quarterback Carson Palmer was frequently under pressure and through four first-quarter series went 1-for-7 for three yards, and took a sack. Running back David Johnson hardly faired better with four carries for six yards (five on one run). The Cardinals didn’t earn one first down and four times went three-and-out.Meanwhile, for the Bills, quarterback Tyrod Taylor completed 8 of 11 passes for 55 yards, including a 24-yard connection with Robert Woods on a diving reception that was ruled a catch despite the ball appearing to hit the ground. Arizona, however, didn’t challenge the play before Buffalo’s LeSean McCoy took a handoff for a 24-yard touchdown.By the end of the first quarter, the Bills had rolled up 100 rushing yards, nearly half of which came on a Taylor 49-yard run that set up a field goal drive to put his team ahead of Arizona 3-0.The Cardinals offense wouldn’t earn a first down until more than five minutes had passed in the second quarter. The Arizona Cardinals looked sleepy to begin.Visiting the Buffalo Bills, the 10 a.m. MST start could maybe be blamed had the Cardinals not had the same sluggishness issue in each of their previous games that were played in the friendly confines of University of Phoenix Stadium.In Week 3, Arizona fell behind the Bills 10-0 heading into the second quarter and for the third time in three games were scoreless in the first 15 minutes of a game.last_img read more

This post is in partnership with Inc. which offers useful advice resources and insights to entrepreneurs and business owners The article below was originally published at Inccom Technology is always advancing but it can be hard to know which advancements are really worth watching Next year these giant leaps forward could impact your business An even thinner iPhone a smarter car and maybe even a Wi-Fi maker robot could debut next year 1 Adobe Photoshop Web Last week Adobe announced they are working on a pilot project for Adobe Photoshop to run on the Web This is a bigger milestone than you might expect In a demo I saw how the app looks the same as it does in Windows and the Mac The app is housed on a cloud server then streamed (almost like a video) to the browser Each click and action is interpreted by JavaScript but the processing takes place in the cloud When all desktops apps run on the Web there won’t be a need for the desktop anymore All you will need is a thin Web client The project is a pre-alpha but I’m hoping it goes mainstream 2 Apple iPhone Air Apple will likely release their thinnest model yet next fall and finally use the iPhone Air nomenclature What might not seem as obvious with this model especially among consumers who think this is just a follow-up to the iPhone 6 Plus is that Apple will likely debut some new battery technology based on tech from 2014 that revealed how phones will charge in a few minutes not an hour In fact in a sense it’s already here I’m expecting the iPhone Air to last two days instead of one My prediction: It will be even thinner much lighter and might even have a slight curve like the LG G Flex 3 Microsoft Surface Phone After the success of the Surface Pro 3 (according to Gartner market share for this tablet that also runs desktop apps grew a full one percentage point in Q3 of 2014) Microsoft will likely make a smaller tablet version similar to the iPad Mini There are already widespread rumors on this one My prediction is that Microsoft will take the Surface name and use it for a new smartphone (replacing the Windows Phone) but the big surprise is that computer chip technology battery tech and a few other innovations will mean this phone will also run Windows desktop apps like Photoshop or that one legacy accounting program you still use We really won’t need to take a laptop on business trips at that point 4 Belkin WeMo Maker The maker movement is partly the result of lower cost 3D printing hardware innovative small factories taking advantage of services like Maker’s Row and just a desire to get back to the basics of more localized manufacturing and production Yet it’s also built on low-cost hardware sensors batteries and other DIY kits (this is what essentially birthed the company 3D Robotics) One new sensor the Belkin WeMo Maker just came out and costs only $80 I’m expecting gadgets like this and the FirstBuild sensor to create a bigger buzz next year than they are making now Using these low-cost wireless sensors makers will be able to get more gadgets connected to the Internet–even things like curling irons (did you leave it on) and your pool (is it clean) My hope They will also start building more robots that are connected to your home and I don’t know mop up after you 5 Google Material Design It might feel like an inside baseball project but Google is pretty serious about revamping the look and feel of every app It all started with Google Inbox and theNexus 6 smartphone Material Design is a user interface concept that mimics how real paper looks and acts Virtual “sheets” or notecards might have different lighting thickness or weight that mimic real cards It’s cleaner has more white space and more colorful than the apps you use now like Gmail The big impact is that all of the Google products we use from scheduling to location finding will use this flat clean look 6 Toyota Mirai I always like to include at least one car in my tech predictions because automotive technology always seems to create a trickle-down effect What starts with a car–like sensors that detect pedestrians or cameras that monitor traffic–might end up in other products Toyota will finally debut the first production hydrogen fuel cell car in mid 2015 The car will drive about 300 miles per fill The best news These cars do not create any emissions They run just as clean as a battery-powered EV but can be “refueled” much faster–usually about ten minutes Contact us at editors@timecomThere are few people in music history as recognizable as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury and not just his face but his four-octave voice and flamboyant physicality Rami Malek is well aware of that fact "When youre able to open your eyes and see a different person staring back at you in the mirror" Malek says recalling his first time in hair and makeup "its a very affirming moment" The Mr Robot star is preparing to play Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody (out Dec 25 2018) the Bryan Singer-directed film that chronicles Queen from 1970 when Mercury teamed with Brian May and Roger Taylor until the bands performance at Live Aid in 1985 six years before the singer died of complications from AIDS Malek channels Mercurys look from that global-concert event Resembling the legendary musician he says "only adds to the level of confidence that one would need to play Freddie Mercury" Here’s our first look at Rami Malek as #FreddieMercury in the forthcoming Bryan Singer-directed biopic: https://tco/idr2jsHqAg pictwittercom/xEL8khSBLz Consequence of Sound (@consequence) September 5 2017 The other part of that equation is of course that voice Parts of the movie that feature singing will utilize either Maleks own voice or recordings of Mercury with a sound alike filling in the gaps"Were going to use Freddie as much as possible and use myself as much as possible" Malek says"Im in Abbey Road [Studios] right now if that should say anything to you Im not working on my acting" Singer who last helmed 2016s X-Men: Apocalypse describes his approach to Bohemian Rhapsody as "not a traditional biopic" but rather a story honoring the music an angle hinted at by the films limited time frame "It wont just be the dark Freddie story but that being said that also will be honored" Singer says "Its about collaboration Its a celebration" See the first photo of Malek as

anymore In the past if the big brains at the space agency said we were going to the moon well pack your bags because we’re shipping out These days Not so much As TIME has noted one of the best ways to tell if any planned mission described in any NASA press release has a chance of actually flying is to use the Count the Conditionals Rule The greater the number of references to what a spacecraft could achieve or when it should be flying the less chance it’s going anywhere at all For years now the manned space program has been drowning in conditionals We were building spacecraft that could take humans to Marsthen we weren’t; we were committing ourselves to a new program that would have us back on the moon by 2015and then we broke the commitment But slowly the manned program appears to be getting back on track Real hardware is being built again real firing tests are being conducted and a first test launch of a new deep-space vehicle is scheduled for September If (and that’s a
