A sad day for tab addicts Firefox will drop Panorama tab management

first_imgPanorama, the thumbnailed heads-up display of all your open tabs, is slated to get the boot from Firefox in the near future. Panorama first landed in Firefox 4 way back in August of 2010, but its user base has remained small — limited to the kinds of power users who frequently pop open hundreds of tabs in single Firefox browsing session.The plan for now is to uproot the Panorama code and convert it back into an add-on. Some of you may recall that Panorama actually started out as an extension. Tab Candy (as it was originally called) was the brainchild of  Aza Raskin. In 2010, Raskin was appointed to be Mozilla’s creative lead and he looked at Tab Candy as a way to organize browsing sessions spatially.When Panorama debuted, it was lauded by many in the tech world. Unfortunately, it never received much attention after the initial launch. The reality is that the overwhelming majority of people using web browsers simply don’t have enough tabs open at one time to really benefit from a feature like Panorama. Even if Mozilla had aggressively promoted Panorama, it’s almost certain that it would still have wound up lurking in the shadows of obscurity.Sometimes experimental add-ons find themselves a permanent home in Firefox — like Weave, which eventually evolved into Firefox Sync. Underutilized features, however, are targeted for removal. It’s a constant battle to keep Firefox lean and mean while still adding on critical new functionality and support for emerging standards.If Panorama can be effectively removed and served up as a standalone add-on again, the vocal power users that would lament its removal will have a fall-back and the rest of Mozilla’s users will have a browser with a bit less bloat. It’s too bad that Raskin’s vision didn’t stick, but it will certainly live on in the Gallery as long as there are still tab-happy Firefox users.last_img read more

County GOP chairman survives no-confidence vote

first_imgTwo meetings in the last week have resulted in calls for Clark County Republican Party Chairman David Gellatly to step down, in the latest in a series of struggles to control the local party.The first was a special executive board meeting on Sept. 2. The sole agenda item for the meeting was a motion to refer Gellatly’s chairmanship position to the precinct committee officers, a group elected by registered voters who consider themselves party members. The motion effectively would have served as a vote of no confidence by the executive board.The argument for the chairman’s removal stemmed from what PCO member Ann Donnelly characterized as “minor accounting points.”Eighteenth Legislative District Chairman George Hacker offered a little more detail.Hacker said Gellatly cut a check for $7,500 to conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren after she spoke at the party’s annual Lincoln Day Dinner in June. This was cause for concern because at an Aug. 2 meeting, the board discussed Gellatly’s involvement in finances and issuing checks without another member’s signature. Hacker said the board thought the issue was resolved until Gellatly paid Lahren the second half of her $15,000 speaking fee.“That’s where for me it got to a point where the chairman was out of line and needed to be brought to PCOs,” Hacker said.Donnelly, however, said she felt Gellatly explained the issues “very satisfactorily.”The motion failed to receive a supermajority vote as required by the party’s bylaws to move forward. The final vote was 7-4 in favor of referring Gellatly’s position to the PCOs.last_img read more

Govt not liable for class IIV question paper leaks

first_imgparliamentThe chief of a parliamentary panel on Wednesday claimed that the government was not liable for the leaks of question papers of class I to IV.Motahar Hossain, who heads parliamentary standing committee on the primary and mass education ministry, made the claim in the wake of allegations and criticism that the government failed to stop question paper leaks in public examinations, and admission and recruitment tests in recent times.“As the question papers of calss I-IV are prepared at the upazila level, the government is not responsible for the leaks,” he argued while briefing newsmen at a media centre at the Jatiya Sangsad (national assembly).Committee member AKM Jahangir echoed the committee chief, saying that the ministry had no authority over preparation of the question papers of the first four classes at the primary level. “These question papers are prepared by upazila teachers’ associations,” added Jahangir Hossain.A former state minister for the same ministry, Motahar Hossain said they had no idea how question papers for examinations of grade I-IV were leaked.He, however, mentioned that the parliamentary standing committee had directed the authorities concerned to take proper measures to address the issue.A ruling party member of parliament from northern Lalmonirhat district, Motahar shared his experiences that as a state minister he bought a few sets of question papers of the primary school completion (PSC) examinations, but none of them matched the original ones.He recalled that he had passed his secondary school (matriculation at that time) in 1965 when there were allegations of question paper leaks as well.last_img read more

UNSC to meet on NKorea missile test

first_imgThe UN Security Council will hold an urgent meeting on Monday on North Korea’s missile launch, the first test since US President Donald Trump took office.The United States, Japan and South Korea requested the consultations after North Korea confirmed it had “successfully” tested a ballistic missile on Sunday.The council meeting is expected to begin around 5 pm (2200 GMT), said the Ukrainian mission, which holds the council presidency.North Korea’s state-run KCNA news agency said a “surface-to-surface medium long-range ballistic missile” was “successfully test-fired” on Sunday, describing it as a “Korean-style new type strategic weapon system.”The missile flew about 500 kilometers (310 miles) before falling into the sea, South Korea’s defense ministry said.The launch was seen as a test of the response from Trump, who pledged “100 percent” support to Washington’s regional ally Japan.Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, whose country would be in range of a hostile North Korean missile launch, called the test “absolutely intolerable” during an impromptu press conference with Trump in Florida.The reclusive regime carried out more than 20 missile tests last year, one of which reached Japanese-controlled waters after a launch in August.North Korea is barred under UN resolutions from any use of ballistic missile and nuclear technology.The UN Security Council has imposed six sets of sanctions since Pyongyang’s first nuclear test in 2006.The latest round of sanctions imposed in November includes a cap on Pyongyang’s coal exports to China, aimed at depriving the communist state of hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue.last_img read more

Russia helicopter crash kills 18

first_imgMi-8 Helicopter. Photo: UNBMoscow on Saturday said 18 people were killed when a helicopter crashed on its way to an oil station in northern Siberia in the early hours of the morning.The Russian transport ministry said the Mi-8 helicopter carrying three crew members and 15 passengers crashed when it collided with machinery carried by another helicopter soon after take-off.It added that the second helicopter landed safely and that the accident took place in “normal” weather conditions.“The first take-off was carried out by a Mi-8 with an external cargo suspension without passengers on board, the second take-off was performed with passengers who were workers on shifts at the oil station,” the ministry said in a statement.“According to preliminary information, the Mi-8 carrying passengers for reasons unknown collided with the external suspension of the second helicopter after take-off. As a result it fell, was destroyed and burned,” it added.“Three crew members and 15 passengers died.”The helicopter was operated by Russian national airline Utair, which has its head office in Khanty Mansiysk airport in western Siberia.In a statement issued on its website, Utair said the crash took place at 5:43am Moscow time (0243 GMT) after taking off from a helipad at the Vankor oil and gas field, in the Turuhansk district of the Krasnoyarsk region.The oil field is operated by Russian national oil company Rosneft through its subsidiary Vankorneft.Utair said the helicopter was made in Russia in 2010.It added that the pilot was born in 1985 and was trained at the Omsk Aviation School in southwestern Siberia.“He flew 5,990 hours, 2,300 of which he was the helicopter commander,” Utair’s statement said.The airline said it sent its specialists to the site of the crash.Russia’s transport ministry said it created a commission to investigate the crash and that the vice director of the Federal Air Transport Agency was on his way to the site.The country’s Investigative Committee said it opened a criminal investigation into the crash.Accidents involving helicopters and small planes are frequent in Siberia and far eastern Russia, where air transport is commonly used to cover vast distances.In April, a Mi-8 helicopter crashed in far eastern Russia, killing six people.In November 2017, six people died when a small plane crash-landed in the Khabarovsk region.In 2016, 19 people died when a Mi-8 helicopter carrying oil and gas field workers crashed in a remote area of Siberia.last_img read more

Houston Politicians Plead For Congress To Approve Zika Funding Quickly

first_imgCarrie FeibelHouston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee speak out for federal Zika funding at St. Joseph Medical Center in downtown Houston.Houston politicians and public health officials are urging Congress to pass an emergency funding measure to fight the Zika virus, before adjourning for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.Three months ago, President Obama requested $1.9 billion to combat Zika. The Senate is proposing $1.1 billion, and the House has approved even less.Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner joined Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee on Monday, at a press conference at St. Joseph Medical Center in downtown Houston. “I will simply tell you that’s not enough,” Turner said. “That $660 million being proposed by the House is woefully inadequate.”(The House bill is actually for $622 million.)  After the “Tax Day” floods hit Houston on April 18, the city worked extra quickly to clean up debris that could act as mosquito breeding sites, Turner said. But they had to use outside contractors to finish in just two weeks.  Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee said there’s still stagnant water collecting at illegal dump sites in low-income neighborhoods, and in trash-clogged ditches.“Urban mayors have said in this region that they need money for cleanup,” Lee said. “That’s what we’re going to fight for, (to remove) sitting water and tires. We’ve indicated that to the Centers for Disease Control.””City health workers have already knocked on the doors of 8,000 homes in Houston, handing out DEET and educating residents, according Houston’s medical director, Dr. David Persse.But with federal funds, the city could do better outreach, and contact many more people.“I want us to understand that we are different from Central America and the Caribbean, in that they didn’t see this coming. There was no way they could see this coming,” Persse said forcefully.“We’ve got advance notice. We have no excuse to be unprepared, we have no excuse,” he said.Texas has 36 confirmed cases of Zika, 13 of those in Harris County. Of those, 35 were patients travelers infected abroad, who later returned home to Texas. One of the cases involved a Dallas County resident who had sexual contact with someone who acquired Zika while traveling.

Original PacMan created to attract women to arcades because women like

first_imgIf you ever wondered what inspired the little yellow guy known as Pac-Man to run across the screen eating everything in his way, it was a ploy to get women into video arcades. The creator of the game said in a recent interview that he thought because “women like to eat” they would want to play a video game based entirely around eating things.While some might balk at the notion that centering a video game around eating comes across as sexist and stereotypical, this idea was born from a time when only a handful of women were even working in video games industry, let alone playing games. Add to that the fact Pac-Man was created by a Japanese game studio, in a country that is heavily dominated by men in the business and technology industry even by today’s standards.For his time, creator Toru Iwatani was revolutionary. He wanted to bring more lady gamers to the arcade. He saw just as much value in them as their male counterparts, but thought that women might not be as attracted to shooting up baddies like men were. So his idea of a little pizza-shaped guy running around eating pellets and fruit and “little monsters rather than a savage video game where you kill your enemies” would be what sold video games to women en mass.And it worked. By 1982 there was a noticeable uptick in women at the arcade. So much that Electronic Game Magazine released an article on it. They did a study on gamer demographics n 1982, and how much Pac-Man influenced the rise of the female gamer. Namco’s Pac-Man, and Midway’s release of it in North America, was the first big commercial hit that brought in the lady gamers. Midway’s spokesman at the time, Stanley Jarocki even credited women for making Pac-Man a success.Outside of Pac-Man though, the top games women liked to play at the arcade? Bezerk and Space Invaders. The very games that Iwatani feared were keeping women out of the arcade. It may have taken Pac-Man to get the ladies inside the doors, but it just goes to show that video games are universal for everyone.If you like weird statistics, the article breaks down the median age of the female gamer in 1982 (26), and how 8% are over the age of 40. Men and women would spend the same amount of time at the arcade (2 to 5 hours per week), with students spending far more time in front of the machines. EGM also talks about two competitive gamers from 1982: Jody Abramson and her circuit on Mattel’s Baseball and Ok-Soo Han’s win at Chicago’s Artari’s Centipede tournament.As for what Iwatani has been up to since he left Namco, he has found a job as an educator at Tokyo Polytechnic University, where he teaches video game development and is working on new ways to use video games to enrich and educate society.[Photo via Flickr – Rob DiCaterino]last_img read more

Chrome Extension Helps Fliers Boycott United Airlines

first_img Forget Tabs, Mute Whole Sites With New Google Chrome UpdateAnother antivirus maker put Google Chrome users at risk Stay on target United Airlines remains the target of public ire after videos of a passenger being dragged off an airplane went viral this week.David Dao, a 69-year-old doctor from Kentucky, was forcibly removed from United Express Flight 3411 from Chicago to Louisville after four passengers were told they need to leave the flight to make room for United employees.The world’s third-largest airline, based in Chicago, issued a series of statements following the incident, and now faces legal actions and intense scorn—amplified in the age of social media, where smartphone-camera videos of a bloodied Dao were circulated on Monday.“This horrible situation has provided a harsh learning experience from which we will take immediate, concrete action,” United said in remarks released Thursday. “We have committed to our customers and our employees that we are going to fix what’s broken so this never happens again.”And while some folks wonder “what’s all the fuss about?”, at least one Web developer is mad as hell, and they’re not going to take this anymore. And you don’t have to, either.“Corporations can treat you like shit because you’ll eventually forget you were ever mad,” the anonymous creator of Chrome Extension, “Drop United,” wrote on the product page.Without extension (dropunited.com)With extension (dropunited.com)“Drop United … drags United Airlines off your flight search results,” according to the sparse site (which clearly chose its words carefully). “So the next time you search for a flight United won’t have a seat in your options.”Easy to install, the extension automatically hides United Airlines from flight search results in Google Search, Google Flights, Kayak, and Expedia. Simply click “Add to Chrome” in the Web store.“Welcome to the United States of Humanity,” the extension description said.To turn off the filter, or remove it completely (it’s possible you could have a change of heart), visit the Extensions tab in your Chrome settings, then uncheck the box next to “Enabled” or tap the trashcan icon.last_img read more

HC lawyers ceasework extended again

first_imgKolkata: The ceasework by lawyers’ associations that has crippled the Calcutta High Court for over a record two months, will continue till May 11 over demands for appointment of judges, the Bar Association said today. The Bar Association, which commands the affiliation of the majority of lawyers practising at the high court, has decided in a general body meeting that the ceasework will continue till May 11 and the decision will be reviewed on May 14, its general secretary Amol Mukherjee said. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flights”The ceasework will, however, automatically stand withdrawn if appointment of new judges is notified in the meantime,” Mukherjee said.The Bar Library Club, which is also participating in the ceasework, will meet on Monday to decide on its course of action with regard to continuation of the agitation.”Our members will hold a meeting on Monday to take an independent decision with regard to extension of the ceasework,” Bar Library Club president Jayanta Mitra said. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedThe previous longest strike was of 2 months in 2002 in protest against hike in stamp duty by the West Bengal government. It was observed across all courts in the state including Calcutta High Court.Though a miniscule percentage of petitioners have moved the high court in-person during the ceasework, which began on February 19, most of the cases pending before the court could not be heard as lawyers have not participated in proceedings.The associations have also demanded the appointment of a chief justice to the high court, which has been headed by acting chief justices for over three years with the exception of only three months. The high court at present has 33 judges, while the sanctioned strength is that of 72 judges.Thousands of litigants, whose petitions are pending before the high court, are at their wits’ end as to when their cases would be disposed of given the uncertainty over when the ceasework would be lifted.Till the end of March, 2,23,921 cases are pending before the high court, according to official data.Very few new petitions have been filed since February 19 owing to the ceasework by lawyers, thus landing those who have urgent matters to be moved before the court in a soup.last_img read more

The St. Louis Children’s Hospital Barnes-Jewish Hospital received the prize for Consistency in Dose Management for its efforts to provide the best radiation dose for every patient according to patient age, general condition, and clinical question at hand. A 6-month-old girl received a cardiac scan conducted with a Somatom Definition Flash CT system, resulting in a radiation dose of just 0.43 mSv. Using this scan, clinicians were able to rule out a narrowing of the girl’s pulmonary arteries. However, they found indications of tetralogy of Fallot. In the award-winning pediatric image from Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital, a five-month-old boy was scanned using a Somatom Definition Flash CT system. The boy had experienced unusually noisy breathing since the age of two months. At four months, he developed stridor, caused by a narrowing of the airways. A CT angiogram showed abnormal development of a double aortic arch surrounding and compressing the boy’s trachea. The applied dose was 1.21 milliSieverts (mSv).

Why May 1 is much more than Labor Day for Costa Ricas

first_imgRelated posts:Why May 1 is much more than Labor Day for Costa Rica’s government Costa Rica’s Solís presents State of the Nation report to invigorated opposition Opposition lawmakers maintain control of Legislative Assembly’s Directorate State of the Nation: President Solís highlights economic growth, urges fiscal reforms You won’t find Costa Rica’s lawmakers marching in the streets or grilling steaks at the beach on this May 1. At least, chances are low.After the general election held on the first Sunday of February every four years (and, as occurred this year, the date of the second-round presidential runoff held if no candidate attains 40 percent of the vote in the first round), May 1 is the second most important day in the Costa Rican government’s calendar. It’s the day the Legislative Assembly — made up of 57 lawmakers representing the country’s seven provinces —  scraps its leadership and committees, and essentially starts over again.Every four years, as is the case today, it’s also the first day of work for Costa Rica’s newly elected legislators.Here’s a primer.What happens on May 1?During the morning legislative session, lawmakers vote to elect the Legislative Assembly’s directorate, which consists of three members: a president and two secretaries. They also elect a vice president and two pro secretaries as alternates.All members of the Legislative Directorate are elected for one year, but they can be reelected.At the evening session, Costa Rica’s president addresses the Assembly and the country in his annual “State of the Nation” speech. This year, the speech will represent President Luis Guillermo Solís’ final report of his achievements in office. In addition to lawmakers, top officials of the executive and judicial branches, Catholic Church leaders and diplomatic representatives also attend.Following the president’s speech, the legislative president gives a speech responding to the president’s report.What is the Legislative Directorate’s job? The primary job of the Legislative Directorate is to manage debates and voting on laws, decrees, appointments and all other legislative matters during sessions of the full Legislative Assembly.During the ordinary legislative sessions — from May 1 to July 31 and September 1 to November 30 — the Legislative Assembly President is responsible for setting the order in which bills are discussed and voted on.During the extraordinary legislative sessions — from December 1 to April 30 and from August 1 to 31 — the list of bills to be discussed and voted on is set by the country’s president who, with the help of his cabinet members, prioritizes them on the Assembly’s agenda.The Directorate’s president is also in charge of assigning all 57 lawmakers to legislative committees, which discuss, modify, amend and approve draft bills before they’re passed on (or not) to the full Assembly.The Legislative President is also responsible for receiving bills and proposals submitted by lawmakers, social groups and citizens, and selecting the legislative committee responsible for a bill’s evaluation and approval.The Assembly’s directorate also has administrative functions, which include distributing financial and human resources to each party represented in the Assembly, proportionate to the number of lawmakers from each party.The directorate also appoints and promotes officials within the legislature, drafts and enforces internal regulations and sets the job responsibilities of all Assembly employees.Legislative CommitteesFollowing election of the Assembly’s Directorate on May 1, every lawmaker is appointed by the Legislative President to at least one of the Assembly’s six Permanent Ordinary Committees and six Permanent Special Committees.They’re also appointed to one of the three committees with Full Legislative Powers, also known as “mini assemblies.” These committees have the authority to pass or amend laws without requiring a vote by the Full Assembly. They consist of 19 lawmakers each and have their own directorate formed by a president, vice president, secretary and pro secretary.Members of all the legislative committees are appointed for one year and can be reelected every May.Permanent Ordinary Committees:Financial Affairs: handles budgets and tax-related issues.Economic Affairs: legislation related to the economy, commerce and industry.Social Affairs: labor, health, education and social protection.Legal Affairs: civil rights, criminal law, commercial law, elections law and internal assembly regulations.Government and Administration: legislation related to the central government, public security and foreign affairs.Agriculture and Natural Resources: agriculture, energy and natural resources.Permanent Special Committees:Drafting: responsible for reviewing and proofing the wording of all bills passed in a first round of voting by the full Assembly.Public Income and Spending Control: analyzes the government’s national budget bill, taking into consideration the Comptroller’s General Office’s budget analysis.Constitutional Consultations: drafts and submits all consultations before the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court, or Sala IV, to determine whether a bill could violate the Constitution.International Relations: coordinates relations between the Legislative Assembly and Legislative branches on matters related to foreign countries and with foreign parliamentary groups.Honors: evaluates proposals to grant “Benemérito de la Patria” status, the highest honor a citizen or organization can achieve in Costa Rica.Books and Documents: responsible for selecting the books and other documents deemed necessary for the Assembly’s daily work.Why May 1?Costa Rica’s first Legislative Assembly was elected in January 1825, but the start date of the legislative year changed several times in subsequent years. According to Assembly records, lawmakers agreed on May 1 in 1890, citing the date’s local and international significance.On May 1, 1857 the filibuster army commanded by William Walker surrendered to the Central American armed forces, ending the 1856 National Campaign against the invaders. The date, therefore, is considered a landmark that reaffirms Costa Rica’s independence, which was signed in 1821.The date was also chosen to coincide with International Workers’ Day, also known as Labor Day.This is an updated version of an article originally published on April 30, 2014.

fitness enthusiasts log the calories they burn their heart rates and even how many flights of stairs they climb in a day Biologist Cory Williams of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff is using similar technology to track the energy consumption of arctic ground squirrels in Alaska—insight that may reveal how the animals efficiently forage for food while avoiding being picked off by golden eagles This week Williams published a study in Royal Society Open Science that compared the activity levels of male and female squirrels He found that although males spend a lot more time outside of their burrows they’re pretty lazy and sometimes just bask in the sun during warmer months Females on the other hand have limited time to spare when caring for their young and use it to run around and forage for themselves and their babies In addition to previous work on arctic ground squirrel hibernation and seasonal differences in behavior the finding is helping his team figure out why males tend to be more susceptible to being eaten Williams sat down with Science to talk about creating a squirrel Fitbit catching the animals in the wild and how technology is improving ecological research This interview has been edited for brevity and clarity Q: What got you interested in studying arctic ground squirrels A: It’s one of the only arctic animals that keeps a rigid schedule even when there’s no light/dark cycle for 6 weeks—meaning they emerge from and return to their burrows the same time every day and they eat the same time each day even though the sun stays in the sky for weeks and weeks So I started to deploy the energy tracking technologies to better understand how the squirrels use energy through the seasons Q: What is it like to work with the squirrels A: We captured them in the wild using traps baited with carrots and handled them from there They’re very very squirmy especially the juveniles because they’re so small The males will even bite sometimes These squirrels are a lot feistier than other species commonly used for research Cory Williams a biologist from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff preparing to trap squirrels in Alaska Q: What technology did you use for the trackers A: The trackers were epoxied onto a collar that the animals wore We used light loggers that were first designed to geolocate birds’ migratory patterns but because they can detect the presence or absence of light we use them to see if the squirrels are in their burrows or not And the accelerometers work just like one in an iPhone They take measurements once every second in three axes of direction which lets us measure the index of movement Movement is highly correlated with energy expenditure so the accelerometers were a perfect way to measure that Q: Did you run into any roadblocks designing this technology A: There were some challenges getting the collars to be a perfect fit When we first started the collars were too big so the animals would shimmy them off or get limbs stuck in them But we don’t want them to be too small that they’d grow into their skin Just figuring how to mount a device on an animal without hurting it is always a challenge Q: What did you find out from the study A: We wanted to see just how males and females differ in their energy expenditure Over 2 years we gathered data and saw that females have less opportunity to leave their burrows because they’re caring for their young but when they do leave they’re much more active than males are on the surface Knowing how the arctic ground squirrels allot their time and energy helps us see how they avoid predators and search for food Q: What could be done with the technology in the future A: As things continue to happen at the consumer level to drive prices down we’ll be able to use technology with more wireless capabilities I’d like to implant a single device in an animal that can give us many measures of physiology and behavior besides energy expenditure We could capture an animal and download data on its heart rate metabolism and what hormones it’s producing This would be useful in a number of scenarios For instance we have a new project that will see how hormones are involved in arctic ground squirrel hibernation And now that wireless charging is more common we could recharge the implanted device inside the animal and send it on its way I’m very interested to see how we can implement technology more into ecological studies The Forum Communications News Service is the premier news wire service covering the Upper Midwest, today’s deal lacks the big dollars,
