Windows Phone 7 resume draws attention job offers

first_imgSahas Katta is an undergrad student at UC Davis studying Computer Engineering. He’s also the CEO of his own startup. This information is available thanks to his Windows Phone 7-styled resume available on his website. The WP7 look-alike resume is so attractive and well designed, it’s earned Katta a number of job offers and tons of interest in his unique portfolio.According to Business Insider, Katta managed to rack up well over 30,000 visitors within the first two days his resume was online, and when they followed up with him about how he’s handling the publicity, he noted that he’s gotten so much interest from people who want to know how he built the design, people who want to buy the design, and people who want to hire him for his own engineering skills that he’d had some difficulty keeping up with it all.AdChoices广告The resume itself looks and functions just like Windows Phone 7. You slide the mouse up to unlock it, click on a tile to access different areas of Katta’s portfolio, send him an email, or access the social networks he’s active on. If you click to see his resume, you can click to scroll side to side and see Katta’s education, experience, special skills, and more. Bonus: click the search button on the “phone,” and it brings up the mobile version of Bing.Katta says he’s gotten a number of job offers as a direct result of the portfolio, including a midnight call from one recruiter who wanted very badly to relocate him to India to work as a user experience designer for a company there. Katta hasn’t said whether or not he’s planning a job change or career move as a result of his newfound popularity, but he certainly has the options open to him.Read more at Sahas Katta via Business Insiderlast_img read more

Blizzard is banning Diablo III players who use Wine and Linux

first_imgBlizzard is forever being asked the question as to when its games will come to consoles. But for the moment, if you want to play the developer’s latest game, Diablo III, then you’re restricted to a Windows or Mac PC. But Linux users do have a way around that barrier: Wine.Wine is an open source application that allows Windows programs to run under Linux, and it works with Diablo III. However, Blizzard has decided to ban anyone trying to do this and is classing the practice as gaining an unfair advantage by running unapproved third party software.Wine in no way gives Linux users an advantage, and players still have to purchase a legal copy of the game and connect to the Battle.net servers in order to play. On first viewing it seems likely that this is an anomaly and the cheat system the game runs is detecting Wine as a false positive game wrapper.The strange thing is, the Wine-related bans didn’t start happening in great numbers until yesterday. Tickets have been opened with Blizzard support with responses ranging from a generic description of what unapproved third party software is, to confirmation that Linux just isn’t supported and therefore cannot be used to run the game.The important thing to note is Blizzard has so far not decided to reverse any of these bans after looking at the issue. So, if you are running the game under Wine you are probably going to be issued with a ban notice sooner or later.The forums also point to the Battle.net Support pages and in particular System Surveys. They consist of system reviews that detect system configurations, but if they find an issue it can stop you connecting to the game. Interestingly Blizzard also looks to see if your operating system is legal, and if it isn’t you may receive a ban too.More at the Diablo III Forums, image via Blizzhackerslast_img read more

Mattis Presses Congress to Pass FullYear Spending Measure

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR A failure by Congress to pass a full-year spending bill for the Pentagon would significantly harm military readiness, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis warned lawmakers Tuesday. If the department is forced to operate under a continuing resolution (CR) for all of fiscal 2018, DOD would not be able to pay for troops by the end of the fiscal year, recruit 15,000 soldiers and 4,000 airmen needed to fill critical shortfalls, or maintain ships at sea with the proper balance between operations and time in port for maintenance, Mattis told the House Armed Services Committee. The military also would ground aircraft due to a lack of maintenance and spare parts, deplete ammunition, training and manpower, and delay contracts for acquisition programs necessary to modernize the force, reported the Hill.Mattis told Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) that the full-year, $659.2 billion defense spending bill the House attached to the CR for a floor vote later in the day would be “sufficient” to fund the administration’s new national defense strategy. But without that level of funding, “the strategy would have to be changed,” he said.Photo by Sgt. James McCannlast_img read more

Nach Baliye 9 Faisal Khan – Muskaan inching closer towards the winning

first_imgInstagramActor Faisal Khan had started his career from the stage of dance and is known to be one of the best that exists in our industry today. Faisal, after having won two dance reality shows is back on stage this time around dancing with his baliye Muskaan. The duo has already been scoring perfect marks consistently and has been one to watch out for on the show as they have made a permanent space for themselves in the Hi-Five zone.We are still not over the last week’s performance which included high-level emotions with the theme of growing old together and here they are they to drive us crazy with their next performance, which is going to be a delightful treat for the viewers.As per sources, “Faisal is going to play with the LED and the whole act will be full of amazing graphics. The twist in the tale is that the duo will be doing the entire performance lying down on the floor.”The judges were so mesmerised by the performance that Raveena Tandon declared that this had to be the best act on Nach Baliye Season 9.Faisal is currently shinning playing his first lead as an adult in Chandragupta Maurya as well as juggling with Nach Baliye as he dances away with girlfriend Muskaan Kataria. During a conversation with host Maniesh Paul, Faisal revealed that their romantic tale started with a phone charger when Faisal lent his phone charger to Muskaan who was obscure about Faisal’s popularity as an actor.Talking about performing with Muskaan, Faisal had said in an interview with International Business Times, “When I started dancing, I came in the industry as a solo dancer. When it comes to comfort, I feel an individual is always comfortable in solo. Having said that, if you share the stage with your life partner then it a different kind of fun altogether, since I am participating with Muskaan, who is exceptionally close to me. It is going to be a new and different experience.”last_img read more

RetroN 5 9 game systems in one box Loot Drop

first_imgRemember cartridges? If not, then first ask your parents and then bite me. There was something incredibly satisfying about inserting a big chunk of plastic holding maybe four megabytes of data into a game system and watching it start up.Classic video games have become a huge collector’s item, and I’ve built up my own collection through thrift store and game store gains (mostly near my hometown, because New York is wrecked for game collectors. You can find anything here, but it’ll be an expensive anything). My old systems don’t work anymore, especially after a few ill-conceived mods, so I had to look elsewhere for ways to play these games.I checked out the Retro-Bit Super Retro Trio for PCMag.com last year and it was pretty sweet. It’s just an NES, SNES, and Genesis crammed into one box. That’s it. It worked well, but it only output in SD and I had to use a composite-to-HDMI converter box to get it to look like not-crap on my HDTV. Hyperkin (the company that made the Super Retro Trio’s cousin, the RetroN 3) has fixed that. The RetroN 5 is magical.First, it can play way more game types. It has slots for NES, Famicom, SNES/Super Famicom, Genesis/Mega Drive, and Game Boy/Game Boy Color/Game Boy Advance. Out of the box, no adapters.Second, it outputs over HDMI at 720p. No adapters needed, and you can use different smoothing filters and turn on and off scanlines if you want.Third, it’s packed full of tricks you previously could only find in emulators. That’s because it is an emulator box. The cartridge slots pull ROM images from your physical games and load them into active memory so you can play them.  Save stages, screenshots, fast forward, cheats, you can do it all. It’s rad.The emulator angle is a little bit iffy, because (and Hyperkin freely states this) the RetroN 5 uses code from the GPL open source emulators SNES9x-Next, VBA-Next, FCEU, and Genesis Plus GX. GPL is a non-commercial license, but without the original programmers complaining directly to Hyperkin it’s mostly an ethically murky thing.Besides that, though, it works great. My cartridges worked like a charm (except for NES Batman, which I fear is damaged), and the output on my HDTV looks fantastic.For an in-depth look at the RetroN 5, read my full review of it on PCMag.com. And either way, watch the video!last_img read more

Park makeover plan with focus on green mission

first_imgKolkata: Some major parks in the city are set to geta makeover shortly. The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) is working for the overhaul of these parks. Work includes beautification, seating arrangements for the elderly, separate space for morning and evening walk, tree plantation, and pathways with paver block. “The greening project has been being undertaken using funds from Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) project. We have identified 17 parks in the city to be beautified and eight parks have already seen a facelift,” a senior official of Parks and Gardens department of KMC said. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataAccording to the official, the work also includes setting up facilities for a children corner in some of the parks that have more space. Joyrides such as cradles, seesaw and slides will be installed for children. Most of the parks will also have pathways made of paver block to facilitate walking. Playgrounds are also being developed depending on the availability of space. Deshbandhu Park in Shyambazar, Tala Park, Marcus Square near College Street, and Lunar Math at Ward no. 129 in Behala is witnessing rejuvenation while a new park facility is being created at Diamond Park in Thakurpukur. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateUnder the AMRUT project, state and Centre share 45 percent of funds while KMC has to bear 10 percent of the project cost. A total of Rs 18 crore has been sanctioned under the project for a period of three years. Work has already been completed in eight parks, including Hazra Park, Bhagini Nivedita Udyan at Bagbazar, and Nawab Ali Park in Ekbalpore. “We have been adopting a scientific approach in tree plantation at the parks. Big-sized trees are not grown in the parks. Only small to medium sized plants such as Tagar, Rangan, Jhau, Croton, Goldiana and Palm are grown to add to the beauty and greenery of the parks. The chance of these trees getting uprooted in a squall is minimum,” the official said.last_img read more

David Vitter (R-La.), recently sent a letter to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius demanding HHS remove all materials and references to the November 2009 U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) mammography recommendations.In compliance with recently passed health care reform legislation, section 2713 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, requires the federal government set aside the November 2009 USPSTF recommendations related to breast cancer and mammography. “The fact that these recommendations are still being presented to the general public as ‘current’ is only serving to further confuse women on this critical issue. The recommendations were ill-conceived from the start – developed via a process without transparency, without input from those with experience and expertise in the field, and without due regard for the thousands of lives that could be impacted by the recommendation. They represent a step backward in our fight against a horrible disease and the taxpayers’ dollar must not be spent in further promotion of them,” wrote Sen. Vitter.The American College of Radiology (ACR) applauds Sen. David Vitter’s stance. The USPSTF is a panel funded and staffed by the HHS Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 (MIPPA) gave the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services the authority to consider USPSTF recommendations in Medicare coverage determinations. According to the ACR, the USPSTF based recommendations to greatly reduce breast cancer screening on conflicting computer models. The USPSTF supported the idea that the parameters of mammography screening change abruptly at age 50. The federally funded and staffed USPSTF consisted of representatives from major health insurers, but not a single radiologist, oncologist, breast surgeon, or any other clinician with demonstrated expertise in breast cancer diagnosis or treatment. In response to the USPSTF recommendations, states are making changes to their coverage for mammography based on the USPSTF recommendations and even denying women coverage for mammograms, reports a recent Avon Foundation for Women survey. California, particularly, has already cut coverage of mammography for low income women. “The ACR strongly supports Sen. Vitter’s request. These USPSTF recommendations run counter to the expert guidance of the American Cancer Society, American College of Radiology (ACR) and Society of Breast Imaging,” said James H. Thrall, M.D., FACR, chair of the ACR Board of chancellors. Thrall added, “I think these particular USPSTF recommendations have been shown to be an example of how health care policy should not be done moving forward.” For more information: www.acr.org and www.acr-arrs.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Demand for ultrasound scans at U.S. outpatient centers could grow by double digits over the next five years, according to a speaker at AHRA 2019.

TORONTO – About 10 years ago married Vancouverba

first_img TORONTO – About 10 years ago, married Vancouver-based actors Kyra Zagorsky and Patrick Sabongui were on the city SkyTrain with their two children when something pulled them out of their happy family moment.“Some man started calling him a terrorist,” recalls Zagorsky of the verbal attack launched on her husband.“One of the big things that stuck out to me was the lack of engagement from everyone else. Nobody did anything. It was so shocking.”The incident served as inspiration for the start of “The Prince,” which will start screening next week in the Short Film Corner of the Cannes Film Festival.Zagorsky wrote and directed the Vancouver-shot short, which follows a Middle-Eastern/American actor as he takes his niece and nephew on public transit. During the trip, his elation over getting an acting job vanishes when a passenger calls them “terrorists” and tells them to “go back to where you came from.”Later, on a film set, the uncle is further dismayed when he realizes the extremist nature of the role he landed.Lee Majdoub stars as the uncle. His niece and nephew are played by Ashe Sabongui and Bodhi Sabongui, who are the children of Zagorsky and Sabongui.Zagorsky says Sabongui, who hails from Montreal and is of Egyptian descent, is a classically trained actor with a master’s degree in his craft. Yet he’s often typecast.“In the beginning the only roles that were available to people like him were you had to be a terrorist,” she says in a phone interview.“He can do so many things and this is was what was presented to him for a long time.”Even these days, with dozens of credits including CW’s “The Flash,” it still happens.“After the (2016 U.S.) election, certain things have started to swing back the other way,” says Zagorsky, who was born in New York and can be seen in the CW series “The 100.”Sabongui has fought back against such stereotypes, though.Zagorsky says he’s walked away from some auditions, turned down certain roles and talked to creatives onset about his culture to help flesh out scripts and characters.“While we were in Brooklyn, there was a big show coming out and they were like, ‘You need to read for this, this is a great part for you’ — but it was so twisty moustache villain, like no humanity to the character,” Zagorsky says.“When you’ve got kids and you’ve got mouths to feed, it’s a big decision to say: ‘This is a really big role, it’s a great role, it’s a financially smart thing to do. But I can’t represent my culture in this light, because this guy is just a straight-up stereotype of a bad guy and we need to be putting people onscreen who look like me who are just regular people, because there are so many of us.”Zagorsky says their children have also endured racism, noting her son documented his experience in a school assignment.“It was this autobiography they had to write and he starts writing about how, ‘When I was nine years old my best friend called me a terrorist on the playground,’” Zagorsky says.“There are these little moments that happen as children that shapes things for them.”The National Film Board of Canada will also be at Cannes, with Patrick Bouchard’s animated short “The Subject.” It will screen in the Directors’ Fortnight section of the festival, which runs May 8-19.“The Prince” has already screened at other festivals and Zagorsky says she’s excited to see the reaction in Cannes.“Sometimes people are moved by it because they didn’t know the subtle racism that’s in the film,” she says.“They started to recognize and think, ‘I had no idea how hurtful that could be or that it could have such an impact on people’s lives and the way they live their daily lives.” Actor Lee Majdoub is shown on the set of the short film “The Prince,” in a handout photo.
