Android Market hits 10 billion downloads celebrates with 10 cents app sale

first_imgGoogle has entered into the holiday season in a festive mood. Mountain View is celebrating the fact that its Android Market has reached ten billion downloads, accelerating to a rate of one billion downloads a month since July.Those are impressive numbers for sure, and speak to the market penetration that Android is enjoying. To say thanks to the users that made a milestone like that possible, Google has worked with different developers to offer ten apps for ten days at 10 cents a piece.Available at the reduced price right now are the following titles:SoundhoundAsphalt 6 Adrenaline HDMinecraft Pocket EditionSwiftKey XEndomondo Sports TrackerGreat Little War GameSketchbook MobileFieldrunners HDColor and Draw for KidsPaper CameraHaving used most of those titles, I can say that these are not junk apps in the least. Indeed Minecraft alone is a steal at the 10 cents mark.This event is another sign of the recent explosion of the smartphone industry. Compared with Apple’s App Store at 15 billion downloads as of last Summer, Android is on track to continue to enjoy enormous success in the mobile market. The key will be to attract the quality of developer that Apple has, and to leverage the Ice Cream Sandwich update to create some new, novel ideas.Apple’s dominance is illustrated in the fact that in the same time frame that it took Android to grow to this point, the App Store did 5 billion more downloads. Either way you look at it, the competition for the mobile dollar is fierce.Be on the lookout for the next nine days to see which apps Google is going to discount next.Read more on Official Google Bloglast_img read more

There are more people on hospital waiting lists than ever before

first_img Short URL THE AMOUNT OF people on hospital waiting lists has reached the highest number ever recorded, with more than 707,000 people waiting for treatments or to be seen by a doctor.According to the National Treatment Purchase Fund’s (NTPF) most recent figures, waiting lists grew by more than 6,000 during May.The largest of these – 511,904 patients – are outpatient cases. This list is made up of people who have been referred to an outpatient clinic by their GP.The South/South West Hospital group has the longest outpatient waiting list, with 108,132 people waiting. The individual hospital with the longest outpatient list is Galway University Hospital, which has over 39,000 people waiting.Nearly 80,000 of these people have been waiting for an appointment for more than 18 months.There has been a slight reduction in the number of inpatients and day case procedures, continuing a trend that has emerged in recent months. May’s figures show a total of 78,596 people waiting, down from 79,414 in April and 80,058 in March.Health Minister Simon Harris welcomed the reduction in the number of people waiting for hospital operations or procedures.“A number of high volume procedures are being targeted for treatment by the NTPF and in May we saw marked decreases in the number of patients waiting for procedures such as Angiograms, Varicose Veins, Cystoscopies and Skin Lesions,” he said.The minister also said that the HSE and the NTPF are working hard to reduce the outpatient list, which “remains a significant challenge”. By Ceimin Burke Jun 14th 2018, 2:31 PM 7,526 Views A draft Outpatient Action Plan for 2018 has been presented to me and work is ongoing to finalise the plan which is focused on improving overall use of resources to tackle long patient waiting times and to ensure timely access to treatment and care for patients.Sinn Fein Health spokesperson Louise O’Reilly said she is shocked but not surprised that the total number of people on waiting lists has reached the highest number ever recorded.“There has hardly been a month since this government came to office where the total number of people on waiting lists has decreased,” she said. http://jrnl.ie/4070569 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Share186 Tweet Email Image: RollingNews.ie Thursday 14 Jun 2018, 2:31 PM Indeed, under this current Taoiseach, who is in office one year today, the number of people on waiting lists has increased by over 20,000.

Google Patents VR Shoes That Almost Feel Like Real Walking

first_imgVR games often involve bumping into objects, but Google recently patented motorized VR shoes that promote safer play and almost feel like real walking.Google’s filed patent application, which was published on Nov. 15, demonstrates the idea of “augmented and/or virtual reality footwear,” that would enable users to engage in their virtual or physical environments sans injuries. These high-tech sneakers would be motorized, so users can feel like they’re walking in the VR landscape, yet they’ll be kept in one area in real-life.Photo Credit: USPTOHere’s how it works: The person would slide into the sneakers, which look like roller skates, before they play a VR game. Once they’re ready, these shoes would allow the person to easily walk in their VR atmosphere. Meanwhile, in their physical atmosphere, the motorized shoes would restrain this movement and keep them safe from tables, walls, and other objects. With these advanced sneakers, users can fully immerse themselves in VR games without worrying about annoying obstacles or getting hurt.Even though these VR kicks could be a benefit for VR gamers, Google will have to iron out some kinks, such as keeping users balanced at all times. While acing the walking motion is important, VR users will have to also keep their bodies stable. It will be interesting to see if these VR sneakers will be produced by Google in the near future.More on Geek.com:Is Valve Making a New VR Headset, With Half-Life This Time? ‘The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners’ is the First VR Game Set in TWD UniverseE3: Armored Core Developer FromSoftware is Making a Game for PlayStation VRlast_img read more

ASA Outlines Crop Insurance Reforms for Senate Ag Committee

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) last week outlined for the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee a list of six specific Crop Insurance Program reforms that ASA views as necessary if crop insurance is to provide an adequate safety net for producers.ASA First Vice President Marc Curtis, a producer from Leland, Miss., told the Committee, “Soybean farmers across the country are facing the lowest prices we have seen in 23 years, and we have worries about world demand. The current program does not work for soybean growers in all states. It does not work in the places where risks are higher and management tools are most needed, like my home state of Mississippi.”Curtis told the committee that ASA believes an increase in the subsidy for higher levels of coverage is needed. Under the current program, with the decreasing subsidy at higher levels, producers are discouraged from purchasing higher levels of coverage.Another issue is the current rating system, which Curtis said relies on 20-year-old data that does not reflect recent trends in yield improvements and better production practices, nor increased participation in the crop insurance system. ASA believes expanding the universe of production beyond past crop insurance users is a good idea, he said.”With new seed varieties, improved farming practices like medium-till and no-till, our yields have improved,” Curtis said. “These improvements are very slow to be recognized by the current system.”Curtis outlined a third area of great concern: establishing production history on lands of beginning farmers and newly rented or purchased lands. The current system penalizes producers when they are farming new land, he said. With the current price situation, there is a lot of land changing hands and producers are forced to accept inaccurate country average transition yields, also known as “t” yields, as the basis for insurance coverage on new lands. “T” yields are often much lower than a producer’s own actual production history (APH), and with normal rotation it can take even longer to build an APH that reflects realistic production levels.In many cases, the new land is very similar to a producer’s existing land. Curtis explained that ASA suggests in these instances that producers should be allowed to utilize their own proven APH on the new lands. Another option would be to use the history established by the last producer who farmed the land, Curtis said. The producer should be able to use the higher of the two until his or her own production history for the new land has been established. A similar change could apply for new farmers also.”The current system discourages the use of crop insurance for new land, and even makes potential buyers or renters of land think twice,” Curtis said.Curtis also told the committee that ASA has determined that catastrophic (CAT) coverage offers little to no protection for soybean producers. ASA favors eliminating CAT coverage and applying the subsidy to the higher levels of coverage.Curtis explained that ASA believes there are several other issues that need to be addressed, one of which is particularly important to members in the northern tier states that have been hit hard by bad weather conditions. That issue is how crop insurance responds to multi-year disasters. Under the current system, multi-year disasters can devastate producers’ APH, and, thus, producers’ ability to get meaningful coverage through no fault of their own.”We must find a way to drop the lowest years or provide a floor on how low the APH can go after multi-year disasters,” Curtis said.Soybean growers also believe that revenue-type programs should be available for all producers growing major commodities, Curtis said. Producers want and need better tools for managing both yield and price risks. Crop insurance has the most potential for providing a safety net to producers.”I offer cooperation of our organization in working with you and anyone on the committee who is interested in finding a workable solution,” Curtis said.last_img read more

Committee OKs school spending report for state court

first_imgOLYMPIA — A committee overseeing progress on paying the full cost of basic education for kids in public school voted unanimously Tuesday to approve a draft of its latest progress report to the state Supreme Court.In its decision on a lawsuit brought by a coalition of school districts, parents and education groups — known as the McCleary case for the family named in the suit — the high court ruled in January 2012 that the state is not meeting its constitutional obligation concerning education funding. In the ruling, the Supreme Court ordered the Legislature to make yearly progress reports on its efforts. Those reports are then critiqued by the group that brought the lawsuit, and by the Supreme Court.This year, the Legislature allocated about $1 billion more for basic education for the current two-year budget cycle. Lawmakers estimate they need to find a total of between $3.5 billion to $4.5 billion more over the coming years to fully pay for basic education.“The down payment phase is over and now we’ve got to get on to the real funding task,” said Sen. David Frockt, D-Seattle, co-chairman of the committee. “We’ve got a long way to go.”The 23-page report approved by the Joint Select Committee on Article IX Litigation, comprised of state lawmakers, focused on how the Legislature invested that $1 billion in education, to help struggling students, to pay for their transportation, to buy classroom supplies, to add 80 hours to the high school year, to reduce class sizes in the younger grades, and to get more kids into all-day kindergarten.“I believe that shows significant progress toward meeting our obligation, but it will be up to the court to determine that,” said fellow co-chairman Rep. Gary Alexander, R-Olympia.last_img read more

Ferrari crash Forensic team examines car

first_imgKolkata: State forensic experts on Monday collected samples from the mangled portion of the Ferrari California T which has been kept at the Domjur police station since a fatal accident involving the high-end car killed a city-based businessman and injured his companion who was sitting next to him.A five-member team of the state forensic experts headed by Wasim Raza reached Domjur police station on Monday morning and examined the ill-fated car. They searched for the Electronic Data Record (EDR) box from the car which might throw some light on how the accident occurred. According to a senior police officer at the Howrah district police, once the EDR box could be accessed, the investigators will be able to acquire various information related to speed of the vehicle moments before it hit the railing or the airbag did not open properly or any other technical glitches the car might have faced. The EDR will also record the conversation of the duo who were travelling in the car. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsAccording to a forensic expert, the chip inside the EDR box will provide all related data as how the accident occurred or if there was any mechanical fault causing the accident. Sources said the state government agencies lack the infrastructure to remove the EDR from the vehicle. It was also learnt that the police might seek assistance from the car manufacturing company on the removal of the EDR box from the vehicle. However, many have raised questions whether the high-end sports car like Ferrari can be run on roads like National Highway 6 which are not prepared following the international guidelines. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedSome also asked if there is any restriction on the high- end cars on such highways in the state.It may be mentioned that Shibaji Roy, a city-based businessman, was driving the vehicle at the time of the accident while his friend Ashna Surana (21) was sitting next to him. Surana had suffered critical injuries in her body and is undergoing treatment at a private hospital in the city. Her condition is still stated to be serious. The car they were travelling in toppled on National Highway 6 at least 6-7 times before hitting the railing of a divider at Pakuria area of Domjur on Sunday morning. According to the police, the victims were returning from Dankuni after having food. Roy used to go to Dankuni along with some of his friends almost every Sunday.last_img read more

Aid comes to the mountains

first_imgA young Cabécar girl from Alto Telire waits for free medical attention. Courtesy of Lucas Iturriza Dr. Wilman Rojas, director of the Caja’s Talamanca Health Area, recalls those earlier days: “When we looked at the infant mortality rates in the Talamanca region, we discovered there were 27 deaths per 1,000 births, and in Telire, the rates were even higher, at more than 100 deaths per 1,000 births. Those rates justified scheduling more trips, and from there, the Caja created a fund for medical missions to the most vulnerable communities.”According to Rojas, communities in the area have an epistemological profile similar to Costa Ricans who lived 100 or 200 years ago, and common problems include respiratory and other infections, pneumonia, diarrhea, and complications from childbirth, among others.The topography of these millennial mountains has protected and isolated the semi-nomadic Cabécar, hunters, gatherers and subsistence farmers who liken the mountain to their own hearts. It is a matriarchal society where everything is tied together by clan.For hundreds of years, the only form of survival was subsistence, a hard life without external influences and dependent on hunting, fishing and small-scale harvesting of crops. When the Alto Telire Cabécares discovered the clothing of “outsiders,” they found it to be warmer and more comfortable than the natural clothing made from palm trees that elders used to cover their bodies.Rubber boots became a necessity, making it easier to montear, or walk in the mountains, and hunt for several days. Boots led to fewer injuries and allowed them to travel faster and farther.The same was true about new weapons and bullets – the Cabécar left behind bows and arrows, and nearly the blowpipe, which they still use today. They also began using other basic items from the outside world, including flashlights, batteries, cooking pots and pans, machetes, soap, bleach, blankets, salt and sugar.Up in the mountains, there are no jobs, no paychecks, no bosses. Everyone pitches in to take care of the family, protect the clan and grow crops of bananas, plantains and cassava on small plots of farmland.Still, food is scarce, and population growth has made hunting increasingly difficult. Finding money for purchases at “outside” markets – something that has become a basic necessity – is challenging. In order to earn a few colones, those old enough for migrant labor travel to El Valle de la Estrella (Valley of the Star) and work clearing land for ₡5,000 ($10) a day. They also toil in banana plantations, where they stay for up to six months before returning back up the mountain with as many supplies as they can carry: clothing, food, a new machete, a radio. A helicopter’s view of Alto Telire, Talamanca, in southern Costa Rica. Courtesy of Lucas Iturriza In 1992, authorities began to respond to the bloodshed, and in time they were able to scale it back. Today, local Cabécares cultivate significantly less marijuana than in the past, and there is less violence. But there are many other risks.“Before, these trips were incredibly difficult,” Rojas acknowledges. “At first we’d go up the mountain accompanied by police, but locals didn’t trust the police because they carried out raids and burned their [marijuana] plants. So we decided to separate medical missions from the police and stop using police helicopters, and that made a big difference. Residents began to associate our blue and yellow helicopter with doctors and medicine, and they started to accept us into their villages.”The blue and yellow helicopter takes off from Tobías Bolaños International Airport, in the western San José district of Pavas. On the helicopter’s side is the circular logo of the Caja. I find myself on one of these medical flights to Alto Telire, my second trip to the region, to document the Caja’s work in this Cabécar community of 300-500 people, Costa Ricans who stoically resist an ocean of adversity.Learn moreOn April 21 at 6p.m.The Tree House in Playa Chiquita, on the southern Caribbean coast, will host a viewing of the short documentary film “Gira a Alto Telire” (“Journey to Alto Telire”) by Edsart Besier, as well as photographs of the region by Lucas Iturriza, of the agency Photonomada.See http://youtube/P_mcY_Nfrbs. Facebook Comments There is another way to earn some money for the Alto Telire Cabécares: marijuana cultivation. Locals barter the illegal crop with drug traffickers in exchange for basic items marked up at inflated prices. Legal crops like coffee and bananas are less profitable – transporting crops down the mountain takes days and selling them at competitive prices is nearly impossible.Marijuana, however, can be grown in remote areas where there is no permanent police presence, and buyers come looking for the product, even offering to transport it down the mountain. Marijuana also fetches higher market prices than other crops, providing growers with just enough income to survive. Although not everyone is involved in the marijuana trade, many are.But there are dangers involved, and officials from the National Police conduct frequent search-and-destroy operations in the area. Because of the raids, police have managed to drastically reduce marijuana production in the past 20 years.Aid workers have attempted to provide area residents with the means to grow alternative crops, but the efforts have achieved little. Transportation is the biggest hurdle, and there is no official government policy to address the issue.Two decades ago, Telire was a violent place, and killings happened frequently. Locals say Mexican and Colombian drug cartels used to operate in the area, and indigenous marijuana plantations measured 10 hectares or more. But the violence mainly took place between local clans, who would attack each other on trails to rob money and marijuana. Ambushes, murder and disappearances were common.Families often responded to the violence with more violence, carrying out revenge killings that targeted other clans, forcing many to leave their homes in fear.center_img From the print editionBy Lucas Iturriza | Special to The Tico Times ALTO TELIRE, Talamanca – Deep in the Talamanca Mountains live Costa Rica’s most isolated residents – families of Cabécar whose homes are so remote that few people know of their existence. The area known as Alto Telire is situated in such rugged terrain it can only be reached by helicopter or a grueling and dangerous trek through the mountains.For the region’s Cabécares, one of Costa Rica’s eight indigenous groups, civilization starts at Vesta and Gavilán, which like other Costa Rican villages have pulperías (small grocery stores) and electricity. Hiking from the mountainous outpost of Piedra Mesa to one of the more populated areas can take three days, heading down the mountain. In the opposite direction, an uphill trek to buy supplies, such as sugar, clothing and rice, can take up to six days.Frequent dangers envelop travelers, include swelling rivers from heavy rains – which claim lives constantly – tiny trails that disappear in a storm, snakes, landslides and the rugged trail itself, which becomes  treacherously slippery. Falls are common, causing frequent ankle and knee sprains. During one journey, a Cabécar man fractured his arm during a fall. Because of heavy rains, 15 days passed before medics could airlift him to a clinic. But doctors could do little to save his arm, which they were forced to amputate.By helicopter, the journey to Piedra Mesa lasts one hour from San José and 30 minutes from Bribrí, a larger indigenous community to the east.The Costa Rican Social Security System, or Caja, has provided medical assistance to these isolated areas for decades. During the first medical missions, Caja doctors, along with other volunteers, would hike to the region, visiting each house along the way. The trips were long and arduous, but extremely gratifying, say participants in the early trips.In 2000, a growing awareness of the plight of the mountain villagers enabled volunteers to collect private donations, which included money, supplies and helicopter flight hours. Helicopters made the area considerably more accessible, and a new chapter was begun in the history of medical missions to the region. But the Caja still hadn’t yet  become officially involved in the project. Dr. David Montenegro examines a young patient at a mobile EBAIS clinic high in the Talamanca Mountain Range. Doctors say the region’s health indicators are similar to those of Costa Ricans a century ago.

for Minority Educational Institutions (NCMEI) declaring Jamia Millia as a religious minority institution The HRD ministry under then minister Kapil Sibal of the UPA-II government had on 29 August 2011 submitted an affidavit in the court stating that the government respects the declaration made by NCMEI The fresh affidavit filed by the BJP-led government last month cited the Supreme Court’s decision in the Azeez Basha Vs Union of India case of 1968 to justify the change in stand It stated that the first affidavit did not take note of the Azeez Basha case in which the apex court had said that a university incorporated under an Act of Parliament cannot claim the status of a minority institution “In any event in the present case the Board of Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) is elected and need not necessarily consist of majority belonging to Muslim religion The question of it being a minority institution therefore does not arise” the affidavit filed by deputy secretary of Department of Higher Education under the HRD ministry had said “Treating a central university as a minority education institution is repugnant to law besides undermining its status and is against the basic tenet of a central university "By no stretch of imagination Article 30(1) could be read to mean that even if an educational institution has been established by a Central Act still the minority has the right to administer it” the affidavit had said It had said that the earlier stand of the government that it respected the NCMEI’s decision that JMI was a minority institution may be treated as withdrawn considering its repugnancy vis-a-vis the facts and Supreme Court ruling in Azeez Basha’s case and "treating it as an incorrect understanding of the government about the legal position that JMI is a minority institution" The latest affidavit had concluded that JMI “is not a ‘minority institution’ having been set up by an Act of Parliament and funded by central government and also that it was not set up by a minority sect” The high court had in March 2011 sought the Centre’s response on a petition seeking quashing of the order of the NCMEI conferring minority status to JMI Petitioner Vijay Kumar Sharma had argued that the commission’s order was "contrary to law and violative of provisions of the Jamia Milia Islamia Act" The 22 February 2011 order of NCMEI empowered the university to do away with all existing quota policies for the SC/ST and OBC candidates and reserve 50 per cent of the seats for Muslim students in all its programmes The petition had said"the Commission order will mean a large number of students belonging to non-Muslim community will be deprived of their right to seek admission in the university Such a reservation cannot be allowed in a central university

Activision has done a great job of turning Call of Duty into a mainstream game franchise that most people including nongamers recognize the Fallout franchise is one with dedicated gamers but little pop culture crossover In Fallout 4 gamers play the sole survivor of Vault 111 and enter a world destroyed by nuclear war The game has been designed as an open world adventure allowing players to craft their own character and embark on a unique exploration of the New England Wasteland SuperData Research CEO Joost van Dreunen has been a fan of the Fallout franchise since day one because of its unique aesthetic and experience "Its popularity seems to come from an odd blend of narrative and action" van Dreunen says "As the franchise has grown more mature over the years it has inevitably attracted a larger player base but its popularity among livestreamers on Twitch and YouTube has further accelerated its momentum" Fallout 4 set the record as the most viewed game launch of all 2015 games according to Twitch Mike Schramm video game analyst at EEDAR says the Fallout franchise has three main audiences There are the old-school PC gamers who remember the original turn-based games There are fans of Todd Howards Bethesda Game Studios whose last three games (Elder Scrolls III: Oblivion Fallout 3 and Elder Scrolls IV: Skyrim) were hailed as games of the year on their respective releases AndFallout 4 is also attracting fans of the new PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles as well "Bethesda announced the game as a surprise back at E3 and the title has squarely remained high on most anticipated lists since then matching up to other big names like Microsofts Halo 5 Activisions Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and Ubisofts Assassins Creed Syndicate" Schramm says The game was one of the most preordered titles of the year at retailers And digital sales were also strong with sales over $100 million across Valves Steam platform and Sony and Microsofts digital stores Van Dreunen says the game sold over 12 million PC and over 640000 console digital copies at launch Van Dreunen says the digital success of Fallout 4 launch sales shows more gamers are willing to forego disc-based copies of big game releases In North America SuperData Research reports that full game downloads on PC and console generate $44 billion in annual revenue Fallout 4 established a concurrent play record on Steam with over 470000 PC gamers playing at once The companion app Fallout Pip-Boy became the No 1 game on the iTunes App Store and the mobile Fallout Shelter app has been a success on both iOS and
