Storms kill at least 70 in India

first_imgA dust storm rises over the Indian capital New Delhi on 13 May 2018. Photo: AFPAt least 70 people have been killed and over 100 injured after a fresh wave of violent sandstorms and thunderstorms battered India, officials said Monday.Winds of over 100 kilometres per hour struck parts of north, east and southern India late Sunday, uprooting trees, electricity pylons and damaging houses, officials from federal and state disaster management agencies said.Forty people were killed by hail and thunderstorms that brought down walls, trees and power pylons in Uttar Pradesh state, TP Gupta of the state disaster management department told AFP.Another 80 were injured by the winds that flattened nearly 40 houses across India’s most populous state.Another 14 people were killed Sunday by thunderstorms in West Bengal and 12 by lightning bolts in Andhra Pradesh.The southern state had also been hit by more than 40,000 lightning bolts on 1 May killing 14 people in a matter of hours.The latest storms also killed two people each in Bihar and the capital New Delhi where winds reached more than 100 kilometres an hour, national disaster management authorities said.Indira Gandhi International Airport was closed for more than two hours because of the winds, with 70 flights diverted.The deaths came just 10 days after a sandstorm left more than 84 dead, most of them in Agra — the city of the Taj Mahal.India has been gripped by a freak weather system since the beginning of May, with many parts of the country experiencing extreme conditions.Weather forecasters warned of fierce storms in parts of the north and east for the next two days.Similar storms hit the region every year but this year has been the deadliest. On Thursday a thunderstorm left at least 22 people dead across India.The 2 May dust storm killed at least 134 people and caused widespread destruction in the western state of Rajasthan and in northern Punjab and Uttarakhand states.last_img

Officials Hope New Pumping System Can Ease Some of Galvestons Flooding Issues

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /00:45 Listen X The City of Galveston has requested $30 million in post-Harvey funds from FEMA to pay for a new pumping system.Galveston City Manager Brian Maxwell said they want to do a pilot program that could provide some relief downtown and on the east side. He added it’s not just the heavy rains that are causing problems, but also rising sea levels.“Not only are we having higher-than-normal high tides, we are having tides that don’t recede down to the complete lower level,” said Maxwell, “which doesn’t help our drainage system to completely void itself of all the water that’s in the system.”Another issue that hampers drainage is the fact that Galveston doesn’t have retention or detention ponds to collect rainwater. Maxwell said there’s not enough space on the island and they also don’t have the right kind of soil.“Our water has to travel a good distance,” explained Maxwell, “we have lines that are two, two-and-a-half miles long that we’re trying to move water down in underground pipes.”As to whether Galveston will get the money for the pumps, Maxwell said he hopes they get an answer from FEMA sometime in the next 12 months.In the meantime, the City is making some improvements to its existing drainage system using money from a bond issue voters approved last year.

NewFronts 2019 New York OneWeek Schedule Released

first_imgUPDATED: YouTube, Hulu and Vice Media are among those returning for the ninth annual Digital Content NewFronts marketing event series in New York City this spring, which keeps the one-week format adopted last year.Interactive Advertising Bureau, the trade group that runs the NewFronts, announced the NYC lineup, which will run Monday, April 29, to Friday, May 3. The program features 16 presenting companies, that same as last year and less than half of the 35 in 2017.In 2018, IAB cut the original New York series to one week — from the previous two-week run — and added a two-day L.A. event in October, in part to cater to companies that wanted to reach West Coast marketers. IAB is again planning to hold a NewFronts West event in Los Angeles in the fall of 2019, a rep for the trade group said. Walmart’s Vudu Sets Originals With Queen Latifah, Evangeline Lilly, Randy Jackson for Free-Streaming Lineup The New York Times After the initial schedule was released in February, Disney (originally slated for April 30 from 9-11 a.m.) dropped out of the NewFronts lineup. In addition, MediaLink was added on April 29 (with a 7:30-8:30 a.m. session) and Target’s digital ad group came in for the lunchtime slot on May 2.The IAB said it’s hoping to add more companies to fill out the schedule (although as it’s set, only slot open is May 2 at noon). On Wednesday, Group Nine Media, which includes Thrillist, NowThis, the Dodo and Seeker brands, said it would not return to the NewFronts this year after presenting in 2018 and 2017, opting for a multi-city marketing tour instead.IAB oversees the NewFronts, in charge of event logistics and marketing. Each presenting company produces and manages its own independent, invitation-only production.Unlike the TV industry’s upfronts — which are lavish presentations aimed at booking ad inventory ahead of the fall television season — digital-media players don’t have a finite bucket of advertising avails or a specific time of year when they launch new content.Here’s the updated 2019 Digital Content NewFronts schedule: Lunch(12-2 p.m.)BBC NewsStudio71VuduTarget Media Network (11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.) Popular on Variety Breakfast(9-11 a.m.)MediaLink (7:30-8:30 a.m.)—HuluMeredithIAB NewFronts Insights Symposium Afternoon(3-5 p.m.)ViacomCondé NastViceDigitas (2-5 p.m.) ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Harman Wants to Use Robotic Speakers to Make VR Sound More Real

first_imgGet ready for robotic speakers to whizz around in your living room while you are having fun in virtual reality: Samsung subsidiary Harman got a patent awarded this week to map sounds from virtual reality (VR) games and experiences to one or more robotic speakers.The patented technology is meant to deal with a shortcoming of traditional speaker systems for VR: They just don’t work that well for spatial audio.“Audio content that is outputted via static audio devices may not accurately represent the virtual environment and/or virtual objects included in the virtual environment,” the patent reads in part. “For example, sounds outputted by stationary speakers may not accurately reflect the distance, direction, and/or motion between the user and a virtual object included in the virtual environment.” As a remedy for this, Harman is looking to map VR soundscapes to robotic speakers, and then move them around in a room. According to the patent, this could reproduce a wide range of acoustic phenomenons, including objects emitting sounds themselves, as well as walls that sound can bounce off, physical obstructions that can absorb sound, and more.“The audio that the user hears matches more closely with user expectations for the audio based on what the user sees in the virtual reality content,” according to the patent. “Consequently, the audio facilitates a more immersive virtual reality experience.”However, the system is not necessarily meant to reproduce every sound. One example mentioned in the patent is inner monologue in narrative VR experiences. From the patent: “Speech from a character may be more suitable for output via a robotic speaker (…) than speech corresponding to an inner monologue from the user representation, because a sense of space and distance is generally not required for an inner monologue.”The patent goes into some detail about ways to track the position of robotic speakers in the room, and ways to position the speakers themselves. Turns out these devices don’t necessarily need to drive around on four wheels, with Harman researchers envisioning anything from one-wheelers to “a hovering mobility platform based on co-axial rotors, multi-rotors (e.g., quadcopters), or vertical gas jet based propulsion mobility platforms.”Does this mean that VR users will soon have an army of speaker drones buzzing around their heads? Not necessarily. First, it’s worth pointing out that companies patent technologies all the time that don’t end up becoming real products. One could also make the case that a lot of these issues could be solved much easier with smart spatial sound and a good pair of headphones.However, as location-based virtual reality evolves to become a sort of high-tech amusement park, it’s easy to imagine that companies like The Void may one day not just use physical props, but also spatially mapped audio playing from real speakers to create immersive entertainment experiences. And who knows: Maybe this future will even involve robotic speakers that reposition themselves to make virtual worlds sound more real. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Rude surprise French fed up with own incivility

first_imgBut Paris’s public transport authority is leading the fight-back in a summer-long publicity campaign against rudeness.Billboards depicting Frenchmen with animal heads have dominated metro stations; they target passengers who are rude to staff and push and shove. “If you shove five people getting onboard,” the posters say, “it won’t make us set off faster.” Bus ads read: “One bonjour doesn’t cost a penny, and it changes your day.”Transport officials say they’ve tried to keep a light touch on a serious matter.“We used humor to not be moralistic,” says Isabelle Ockrent, RATP communications director. “But we’ve been alerted by our staff that there is a real problem.”Public transport staff even held “rudeness forums” over three days in late June in 20 metro stations, in which they exchanged views on correct etiquette with passengers.Among other things, people were asked what they thought the root causes were for pushing and shoving: Lack of time? Unhappiness? Many Parisians attribute the decreasing tolerance to rudeness to the fast-pace of the Internet age, with i-Pods on the metro and mobile phone noise in public spaces. Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Sponsored Stories Atout France, the country’s tourism development agency launched a summer campaign in regions where tourism is suffering to promote service quality.“We’re very aware of the problem making tourists feel welcome,” says Fanny Moutel, communications director for Atout France, the country’s tourism development agency. “We’ve noticed that there are fewer English visiting places like Brittany and Normandy and the Loire, so the campaign aims to improve the way tourists are treated.”Where English-speaking tourists were once greeted with raised eyebrows and a Gallic shrug, more and more French in the service industry speak English.That’s just one of the many ways in which France is changing.Earlier this week on a high-speed train, there were puzzled smiles from passengers after a decidedly un-French loudspeaker address:“Hello, welcome, please greet your neighbor, and may you adopt a zen attitude.”_____Thomas Adamson can be followed at Top Stories More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements 5 ways to recognize low testosterone “It might seem obvious, but when stressed for work, Parisians forget `hello’ or `thank you’ when asking for a ticket,” says Ockrent.Parisians, it seems, may be pleased to be going back to finishing school.Passengers regularly gawk at the ads, which have stretched from ceiling to floor inside some metro stations, and the RATP say the campaign has gotten near universal positive feedback on it.The results of this year’s IPSOS trend research won’t be published until fall. But the agency can already reveal that the backlash against rudeness is rising.“In 2012, one thing is clear; the French are irritated and want a return to good manners. They’ve had enough of rudeness … reached a limit,” says Lise Brunet, IPSOS’s director of trend studies.“The acceleration of life with cells phones means that people have even less time to follow the rules of politeness,” adds Brunet. “Today, it’s even more of a concern than the economic crisis. People just want to hear `Thank you.’”In France, the world’s most visited country, rudeness is also a concern for tourism companies _ especially as France feels the bite of the financial crisis.

Four benefits of having a wireless security system Associated PressPARIS (AP) – It’s a July evening on the terrace of the legendary Cafe Flore. A coiffed woman sips chilled wine, another savors her chocolate eclair.The one thing to complete a perfect picture of Parisian life? A dash of French rudeness.It comes from the waiter, who snootily turns away a group of tourists: “There’s no point waiting,” he shrugs, even though there are many empty tables. “No space outside.” Such rituals of rudeness have long been accepted by visitors as part of the price of enjoying such a beautiful city as Paris. But it seems the French themselves, who over centuries have turned rudeness into an art form, have become fed up with their own incivility, according to recent polls and publicity campaigns.There’s a fabled history of French rudeness from Napoleon, who called the English a “nation of shopkeepers,” to former President Nicolas Sarkozy, who infamously snarled at a voter: “Get lost, poor jerk.”Now, bad manners and aggressive behavior top the list of causes of stress for the French, even higher than unemployment or the debt crisis, says pollster IPSOS. A total of 60 percent cited rudeness as their number one source of stress in a survey last year on social trends.“We’re so rude,” admits 34-year-old French teacher Stephane Gomez, as he comes out of a Paris metro station. “France lacks the civic sense that you find in Anglo-Saxon countries.”“It’s so easy to be polite, but we don’t do it,” says 30-year-old Zahia Sebahi. “I never see someone give up their seat for an elderly person.” Patients with chronic pain give advice New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Comments   Share   last_img

UNWTO confirms upward trend in international tourist arrivals

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: C.F <a href=”” target=”_blank”><img src=”;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a> The latest UNWTO World Tourism Barometer has confirmed an upward trend in international tourist arrivals. According to the report, a 7% growth in international tourist arrivals was recorded in the first two months of 2010 worldwide. This follows on from the growth registered in Q4 of 2009 when arrivals grew by 2% after 14 consecutive months of negative results. The UNWTO Barometer indicated that growth was positive in all world regions during the first two months of 2010 led by Asia and the Pacific (+10%) and Africa (+7%).  The pace of international tourism growth was slower in Europe (+3%) and in the Americas (+3%), the two regions, which were hardest hit by the GFC and are proving to be comparatively weaker.A large number of countries around the world reported positive results in the first months of 2010. Out of the 77 destinations revealing data for this period, 60 showed positive figures, of which 24 posted double-digit growth including Estonia, Israel, Hong Kong (China), Macao (China), Japan, Taiwan (pr. of China), Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, Guam, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, US Virgin Islands, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Kenya, Seychelles, Morocco, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.last_img

IATA urges Australia to lead Asia Pacific industry dominance

first_imgThe centre of the world has dropped by a latitude or two in terms of aviation profit and activity, with Asia Pacific the most profitable region, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA).But the region needs a strong industry leader and Australia is well positioned to take on the role, IATA Director General Giovanni Bisignani said at the recent National Aviation Press Club in Sydney.“The credibility and respect Australia has built gives you some great opportunities [to] play a key role in regional leadership,” he said.“You are in the centre of the most challenging and interesting part of the world.“Asia Pacific is the largest single market in aviation and will continue to drive industry growth.” With their carriers expecting to report a profit of USD2.2 billion in 2010, Asia Pacific will post the largest gain of all regions compared to last year, according to the IATA boss.“The future of aviation is in Asia Pacific,” Mr Bisignani said.

S. on Tuesday Sept 29 2015 Bloomberg—Getty Images Google’s Nexus 6P was produced by Huawei and became available for preorder on September 29 2015 While there aren’t any real sales figures for the Nexus 6P we do know that a thousand phones were sold on the first day and it has been a very well-received phone despite packing the infamous Snapdragon 810 processor At 6406 K the Nexus 6P’s color temperature was the closest to pure white Coupled with a contrast ratio that’s literally off the charts this means the 57″ AMOLED screen on the Nexus 6P provides authentic colors and true blackness The screen is powered by a massive 3450 mAh battery which is considered to be fairly large even by this year’s standards The screen resolution is phenomenal at 1440p Quad HD and the brightness gets just high enough to still be visible in full sunlight On the other hand it also gets dim enough to not cause a headache while you’re laying in bed and streaming an episode from Hulu Kevin M/Gadget Hacks The dual front-facing speakers ensure that your listening experience is never muddled or muffled because there’s simply no way to accidentally block those speakers (unless you’re this kid) The speakers might not be the loudest amongst the other contending phones but they do fire at the same output decibels and provide a fairly nice stereo surround effect Multitasking is a breeze you can reply to notifications and split the screen in half to open up another app (to check your email or Google Image Search the saucy actor/actress you just saw) and none of it pauses or breaks the video you were just watching Kevin M/Gadget Hacks When lowering and raising the volume the volume slider only shows up at the top of the screen and lasts for about three seconds so it doesn’t get in the way of what you’re watching You can also manually dismiss the volume dialog by putting your finger on top and sliding upwards or simply tapping anywhere on the screen One gripe with the Nexus 6P is that it doesn’t have an expandable storage slot so no SD card (though there is the option to buy the 128 GB model for a couple hundred extra bucks) Granted an SD card would be cheaper than buying a larger storage model but it’s good to know that this option is still available for those die-hard Nexus fans The buttons on the 6P are another story they get pressed fairly easily no matter how you’re holding the phone But they are all on the same side so you can prop it up against something without having to worry With a starting price of $399 there’s just no way this phone will disappoint anyone certainly not if you’re interested in streaming video Read more: Recover a Lost WiFi Password from Any Device Buy it here 2 ZTE Axon 7 Amazon The ZTE Axon 7 is a midrange phone released in 2016 but it comes packed with about as much flagship hardware as the rest of the phones in our list There haven’t been any figures released on how well the phone has been selling but the general sentiment amongst consumers seems to be extremely positive and it even managed to rank amongst our top four phones for audiophiles and music lovers The speakers on the ZTE Axon 7 are fairly loud hitting 74 dB with ease which means you can hear them clearly in almost all daily activities They’re also in the preferred speaker position (dual front-facing) so there’s no way to accidentally cover one of them and cause audio muffling The ZTE Axon 7 even has a 55″ AMOLED screen with the same 1440p resolution as the Nexus 6P The AMOLED screen contributes to a perfect contrast ratio meaning the blacks are true blacks because the individual pixels in the display completely turn off when the hex code#00000 is sent to them Kevin M/Gadget Hacks On the other hand at 7698 K the screen temperature is a lot warmer than the ideal rating of 6500 K but there are a few options in the display settings that allow you to manually play with and change the temperature of the screen to one that feels a bit more comfortable to you The other good thing about the ZTE Axon 7 is that it does get a bit dimmer than the Nexus 6P at the lowest brightness setting while the maximum brightness is exactly the same as the 6P On top of that it’s rocking Android Nougat already which means it comes with several great multitasking features that won’t interrupt your viewing experience Kevin M/Gadget Hacks The ZTE Axon 7 is the cheapest phone in our list (exactly one cent less than the Nexus 6P) but has the same or higher specifications as the rest of the phones It has a base storage of 64 GB and an expandable storage slot while rocking two SIM card slots at the same time Multitasking notifications and volume control work exactly the same on the ZTE Axon 7 as on the Nexus 6P so absolutely nothing should disturb video playback Buy it here 3 iPhone 7 Plus A customer inspects a new iPhone 7 plus smartphone inside the Apple Inc Covent Garden store in London UK, Using the volume keys causes an obnoxiously large read more
