Under the partnership, the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) charity will distribute XO laptop computers in schools run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), the agency said today.“Core to our mission is providing the world’s most isolated and vulnerable children access to modern forms of education and the opportunities that follow,” said Nicholas Negroponte, OLPC chairman and founder. “The XO laptop has a special place in children’s education in regions that are disrupted by ongoing political unrest and violence. With the XO, the children can continue to stay connected and gain the skills and knowledge required to participate fully and thrive in the 21st century – even when getting to school is impossible,” he added.Today in the city of Rafah, about 30 kilometres south of Gaza City, officials from OLPC, UNRWA, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), local dignitaries, parents, teachers and children celebrated the deployment of the first 2,100 laptops at the Rafah Co-Education Elementary School D. The project is also supported by the Jordanian Hashemite Charitable Organization (JHCO) and the office of President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian National Authority.“Our partnership with One Laptop per Child has much potential to help us improve the way we work,” said UNRWA Commissioner-General Filippo Grandi. “It combines so much of what I consider to be to important priorities for UNRWA: concrete partnerships, innovative technology and new educational initiatives, bringing hope and a belief in a peaceful future for the next generation of Palestinians,” he said.OLPC has worked closely with UNRWA on teacher training and the development of localized software and content for the computers. Some 200 teachers have already been trained and more than 150 electronic learning modules are being adapted for use on the XO. OLPC and UNRWA are also collaborating on electronic textbooks and workbooks for a primary school curriculum.UNRWA has been the main provider of basic education to Palestinian refugees for over six decades. The agency provides primary schooling free of charge for Palestinian refugee children in the occupied Palestinian territory (West Bank and Gaza), Lebanon, Syria and Jordan. 29 April 2010A non-profit organization that helps make computers available to children is partnering with the United Nations to provide laptops to nearly half a million refugees in the occupied Palestinian territory.

MONTREAL – Bombardier says it’s not worried that rival Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer beat it to a contract with Republic Airways Holdings Inc. for the sale of 47 regional jets with an estimated value of US$2 billion.“It’s not a blow,” spokesman Marc Duchesne said Thursday, noting that Bombardier (TSX:BBSD.B) had previously received a firm order from Republic for 40 CSeries aircraft, with an option for 40 more.The Montreal-based manufacturer (TSX:BBD.B) sold 73 CRJ aircraft last year and remains the market leader for regional jets, Duchesne added.For example, Delta Airways recently selected CRJ900s over Embraer when it decided to renew its 76-seat fleet.“Airlines are well aware that our product is superior and the North American market will see more opportunities for larger regional jets such as the CRJ900, so we are in discussions with many of them.”Among the potential opportunities is American Airlines, which is looking for acquire several planes on its own, in addition to those that will be operated on its behalf by Indiana-based Republic under the American Eagle brand. The deal is subject to court approval expected in the first quarter of 2013.American is looking to increase the number of regional aircraft following contracts with pilots that allow them to increase the number of regional aircraft with 66 to 76 seats to 25 per cent of its mainline narrowbody fleet of 120 planes. American has 47 Bombardier CRJ700s with 63 seats and 213 small jets in its fleet.Embraer said in a statement that its agreement with Republic includes options for an additional 47 E-175 aircraft, which would bring the total value of the deal to approximately US$4 billion.Deliveries of the 76-seat aircraft are expected to begin in mid-2013, Embraer said.With the new order, the Republic Airways E-Jet fleet will be comprised of 72 E170s and 107 E175s, the Embraer statement said, adding that more than 150 E175s are currently in service with 12 carriers.Walter Spracklin of RBC Capital Markets said he wasn’t anticipating a Bombardier win because Republic currently flies an all-Embraer fleet.He said the contract loss shouldn’t undermine Bombardier’s chances of a succeeding on the deal with American Airlines, whose fleet is split about evenly between the two manufacturers.“We believe Bombardier is much more in contention for that, and Republic’s order does not make the American Airlines order any more or less likely,” he wrote in an email.On Wednesday, American Airlines said it reached a 12-year deal with Republic Airways to operate regional flights using 76-seat planes.Under the agreement, Republic Airlines will get Embraer planes painted in American Eagle colours. They will go into operation at a rate of two or three per month starting in mid-2013.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Bombardier’s shares closed down four cents at C$4.09 in Thursday trading.— With files from The Associated Press. by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 24, 2013 5:01 pm MDT Bombardier says Embraer sale to Republic not a ‘blow’ to its sale outlook AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
Brock’s gaming prowess impressed high-profile industry judges during a recent provincial gaming event.The University sent its largest ever contingent — more than 40 students in five teams — to present their games at the 2019 Level Up Showcase April 17.Held at Toronto’s Design Exchange, the annual game design showcase brings together hundreds of aspiring game developers from post-secondary schools across the province to have their work judged by industry professionals and the public.Five Brock teams presented their games to industry professionals and the general public at this year’s Level Up Showcase on April 17.A team of 10 third-year students in the joint Brock/Niagara College GAME program caught the attention of the judging panel, earning a first-place win for Social/Mobile Gaming and second place for Artistic Achievement for their game Bad Manors.The accolades are no small feat, given judges include representatives from UbiSoft, Game Loft, Microsoft, Xbox, Uken, Zinga, AMD and Unity.The students spent eight months developing Bad Manors, a two-on-two game that has one team play as ghosts haunting a mansion and the other team as teenagers trying to steal treasure found within.“Watching people enjoy our game during Level Up made all the time we put into this project worthwhile,” said Chris Rosati, the game’s technical artist and co-lead designer with Nathan Lantz.This was the first time students in the GAME program competed in the event, although Brock has previously attended with Interactive Arts and Science (IASC) students, who also continue to participate.“Our GAME specialists are in their third year and they’ve already reached such a high level,” said Justin Howe, Project Co-ordinator and Technical Assistant for Brock’s Centre for Digital Humanities, and instructor for the IASC capstone course 4L00. “That’s in addition to our Interactive Arts and Science generalists who can easily hold their own in game development.”Howe said he’s “very proud of the exceptional, quality work that was put forward by all our students who made a great array of content for judges and the public alike.”He anticipates Brock will send twice as many students to the provincial showcase in 2020.Level Up gives GAME and IASC students an opportunity to hone key industry skills, such as working with and managing large teams, and creating and maintaining a project schedule, said fourth-year IASC student Ellen Thornton.Fourth-year Interactive Arts and Science students took their espionage-themed puzzle game, Spy2K, to Toronto’s Design Exchange for the ninth annual Level Up Showcase. The team spent the past eight months developing their game from initial concept to playable product.“It’s the ultimate test to see what we’ve learned in the IASC program,” said Thornton, who was the producer for IASC 4L00’s game Spy2K. “As someone who doesn’t see themselves making video games in the future, there are still so many things that I learned throughout the year that I can apply to any career path.”The three other games developed by GAME students were Dreamscaper, a 3D navigational challenge; Heist, a criminally-themed co-opetition game; and Magehem, a virtual reality wizard game featuring gestural recognition technology to cast spells.Awards were given for Technical Innovation, Artistic Achievement and Overall Game Design. The public also votes for the event’s People’s Choice Award, which was won last year by Brock’s fourth-year IASC students for the game Stop Running.Level Up is organized by Algonquin College, Brock University, Sheridan College, Ontario College of Art and Design and the University of Toronto.
ITRI reports that at a press conference in Jakarta last week the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources announced results of audits of tin smelters in Bangka Belitung and Riau islands carried out since March. It concluded that capacity utilisation had been only 21% in 2015 and that there has been poor supervision of mines and smelters by the Bangka Belitung provincial government. Ministry Inspector General Husein Mochtar said that only 29 out of 47 smelters surveyed were still operational and that the government had issued “clean and clear” certificates for 498 out of 755 IUP mining licences.According to CNN Indonesia, rated annual smelting capacity in the country was 340,630 t/y, while refining capacity was 339,186 t, implying capacity utilisation rates of 21% in 2015. The data excludes companies producing tin products and solders, which are licenced by the industry ministry. Following the results of the audit, the Ministry has taken the decision to stop issuing new IUPs.Cogencis reported that Husein concluded that mines in Bangka Belitung “were poorly supervised by the provincial government and there was no reliable data to go by”, adding that “contracts between tin miners and smelters were also obscure in terms of volume.” He was also reported to have been critical of the Indonesia Commodity Derivatives Exchange (ICDX), through which all refined tin exports must be traded, for lack of co-operation in providing data to verify audit results.The ITRI view is that the “press reports indicate the Indonesian government’s serious commitment to stronger supervision of the tin sector, which has already been reflected in a considerable reduction in production and exports since export regulations began to be tightened in August 2013. Although sales have increased after a very slow first quarter, it is unlikely that annual exports in 2016 will exceed some 65,000 t.”
Angry Mutant Ninja Birds is a mobile beat ’em up where players fling themselves at an army of green Bebops.Source<><> We did it. We’ve finally won the war against culture. It wasn’t easy. It took decades of nerds being ostracized due to their offbeat interests, only for those same interests to get co-opted by massive corporations, until suddenly the very air we breathe is now full of Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and the franchises not owned by Disney.Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy some geeky movies, TV shows, video games, and whatever else. I’m a Senior Editor at Geek.com for crying out loud. But the current omnipresence of nerd culture isn’t always pretty.No, I’m not talking about the legitimately horrific harassment that infests the internet. That’s a whole other issue. I’m talking about good old-fashioned pandering. These days if you can open up Photoshop, stick Doctor Who and a Banksy photo in a blender, and slap it on a hat, you can make some real money from less-than-frugal dorks. Everyone is guilty of this, from the soulless profiteers at TeeFury to the earnest fan artist with the insufferable DeviantArt or Etsy page.In this agonizing new age of meaningless mash-ups, the heroic Tumblr blog Just Two Things has taken up the task of chronicling the worst of the worst. And we’ve collected a sample of their findings. Below you’ll see 11 examples (or 22 things) of artless juxtapositions for money or nerd cred or something.All your favorites, from Deadpool to Pokemon to Firefly, are ruthlessly strip-mined of value. Each slide has a link to the source Tumblr post, where you can read more snarky commentary from the curators tracking our declining culture. In the captions I’ll also be providing some creative writing thought experiments on what kind of movie or TV show or game these mash-ups would be if they actually existed. There are a lot more where these came from. If you’re longing for more pointless pairs of properties, check out Just Two Things on Tumblr for more updates. You can also follow the Just Two Things Twitter bot as it mechanically combines names into new mash-ups just waiting to be exploited. Breaking Bad plus Superman? Breaking Man.

This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. 6 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Online shopping is no longer just a fad, it’s a lifestyle. People everywhere are taking advantage of the convenience of ordering anything — and I mean anything — and having it delivered right to their doorstep. In order to capitalize on this shift in lifestyle, retailers have taken to the ecommerce world and are setting new norms for online businesses across the globe.Ecommerce is continuing to get more and more competitive. With technology constantly evolving, so is the online shopping market. Websites are smarter, shipping is quicker, and expectations are higher. In order to keep up with the market, online stores have started to gravitate towards new trends.Related: Deep Learning and ‘Hyper-Personalization’ are the Future of Marketing AutomationLet’s take a look at that we’ll be seeing more and more of in the upcoming year.Personalization.People love experiences that are customized to their tastes and needs. Since there are no physical sales associates to make sure customers feel like their needs are being met, technology must replace human help.This sense of personalization is being done in a variety of ways. An increasing number of companies are curating available options and pulling items from multiple sources. These companies analyze users’ purchase history and offer products that a customer is more likely to be interested in, all while getting rid of excessive, and most likely unnecessary, options.To take online shopping personalization one step further, companies are starting to incorporate artificial intelligence and machine learning into the ecommerce experience.Companies like Facenote, a facial recognition platform for customer identification, are trying to make customers feel more comfortable while shopping. Facenote uses advanced technology to help build a strong sense of loyalty between customers and brands. By recognizing consumers’ faces through a webcam, the rest of the shopping experience can be customized to match their past needs and purchases.Augmented reality.By definition, augmented reality (AR) is when technology is used to superimpose digital images and graphics into the existing environment. While people typically recognize this feature from video games, it can be used for online shopping, too.Furniture companies, such as Magnolia Market, have figured out how to use AR to help customers visualize how furniture would look in their unique space. Their mobile app allows people to see Magnolia furniture through their camera in the space that they are furnishing. This unique feature makes the online shopping experience much more personalized and lets customers see how their furniture is going to look before they buy it.Related: This Is How You Discern the Person in All That Customer Personalization DataChatbots.As mentioned earlier, companies are working to replicate the physical, in-store sales assistance while shopping online. Chatbots represent a valuable resource for brands that want to make their users feel they’re being “physically” assisted while buying online.Chatbots are mostly implemented with the intention of creating an instant communication between a customer and a company. Since online stores don’t have specific opening and closing hours, customers can be shopping at any time of day. Instead of hiring associates to sit behind a computer in case the customer has questions, technology has stepped in. Chatbots allow customer to ask questions and get answers nearly instantaneously.Different chatbots can provide different services. Some answer questions, some make suggestions, some help with checkout, and some even help build outfits. A survey by Oracle found that 80 percent of brands plan to use chatbots by 2020, while a Ubisent study found that 35 percent of consumers want to see more companies using chatbots. Inevitably, they are becoming a crucial element of online shopping.Cryptocurrency payments.Recently, there have been rumors of Amazon considering of accepting cryptocurrency as payment method. This could shake up the entire ecommerce world completely. There are some blockchain projects that aim to deliver peer-to-peer commerce using a unique token, however, it takes a mainstream giant to set a new standard in the field.Social media shopping.One way in which mobile devices are being utilized for shopping is through social media. Facebook and Instagram have opened up the ecommerce marketplace and made it easier for users to shop through their social media platforms. Instagram, for example, has started to offer a feature for direct product links to be tagged in posts that even include product and price details.Additionally, companies have taken to social media to advertise their brands and products. At this point, a company without a Facebook or Instagram account is, quite frankly, a step behind. People spend hours scrolling through their social media news feeds daily.Even if a company isn’t directly paying for advertisements, their own accounts serve as an effective self promotion tool.Related: How to Use the New Shopping Feature in Instagram Stories to Radically Boost Your SalesAutomated checkout.Another rising use of mobile commerce is automated checkout such as Paypal, Amazon Pay, or Apple Pay. Multiple online shopping sites have made it that much easier to order goods online. With features like Apple Pay, iPhone users only need to enter in their credit card information once. From there, the card number and address can be saved to their phone and stored for later use. If a website offers Apple Pay, all the user needs to do is click “OK” and the checkout process is complete. Easy.Without the hassle of entering in information and long checkouts, online shopping is almost too easy. Users can see a great product on Instagram, click the link, and checkout with an automated payment process in under five minutes. By offering these features, companies are removing obstacles and making the shopping process a breeze.With so many rising online shopping trends, retailers make it hard to resist. The online personalization of shopping ensures that shoppers are recognized and have options that best suit them, augmented reality allows shoppers to practically try out their new purchases, chatbots provide extra assistance, and stores are shifting over to social media and automated checkouts.

“”BB&T””:http://www.bbt.com/default.html looked southward to acquire Florida-based “”BankAtlantic””:https://www.bankatlantic.com/default.html Tuesday, assuming $3.3 billion in low-cost deposits and 78 branches from the retail lender in the process, according to statements released by the companies.[IMAGE]The move ranks BB&T ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô one of the largest U.S. banks by assets ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô the sixth largest franchise in the Miami market. The North Carolina-based acquirer will pay $301 million above the premium price for the deposits and branches, plus $2.1 billion in performing loans.In buying BankAtlantic, BB&T will refrain from bringing on any other obligations, including nonperforming loans and bank-owned properties, which will stay with the holding company.””This acquisition of BankAtlantic is a compelling strategic expansion into important long-term markets in Southeast Florida,”” “”Kelly King””:http://www.bbt.com/about/corporategovernance/profile/kking.html, BB&T’s chairman and CEO, said in a statement.[COLUMN_BREAK]A spokesperson for BankAtlantic could not be immediately reached for comment.Speaking with _MReport_, “”Daryl Bible””:http://people.forbes.com/profile/daryl-n-bible/122421, BB&T’s CFO, echoed King by calling the BankAtlantic acquisition “”strategic in that it increases our share in Southeast Florida at a very low-risk and attractive franchise. It’s a win-win-win for us.””He says that BankAtlantic “”seems very pleased with the transaction as well.””Jefferson Harralson, a bank analyst with “”Keefe, Bruyette & Woods Inc.””:http://kbw.com/, calls the acquisition by BB&T “”a smaller deal”” than one that could have secured more assets and deposits.Harralson describes BankAtlantic as a financial institution that has struggled for a long time.””It’s a deal where BB&T is basically assuming assets and liabilities without writing a check,”” he says. “”They’re cherry-picking the assets from BankAtlantic.””He says that the acquisition helps BankAtlantic by shrinking the size of a company that continued to suffer losses, allowing executives there to “”manage and wind down”” assets to make a profit over time.Bible demurs when asked whether BB&T, described by “”_Reuters_””:http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/11/01/us-bankatlantic-bbt-idUSTRE7A03ED20111101 as one of the stronger firms to emerge unscathed from the financial crisis, intends to assume the deposits and branches of any other ventures in the near future.The acquisition is a move up for the bank, which received rescue funds from the Troubled Asset Relief Program in 2008 and recently reported a 48-percent increase in net income over the second quarter.

And according to Arizona Cardinals free agent Karlos Dansby, Sam’s presence — and everything that comes with it — will pose a problem for whatever team he’s on.“It will definitely be a distraction, without a doubt,” he told Sirius XM’s NFL Radio. “That’s something that you really don’t even really want to talk about. You want to talk about football and making plays, and doing stuff like that. And the team you’re about to play against. You don’t want to answer questions about one’s sexual preference.”A prevailing thought seems to be if Sam can help a team win football games, his teammates will accept him. Of course, that would not prevent others from continually pressing the issue of his off-the-field lifestyle, which could be the distraction Dansby is referring to. Even if his teammates do not care, the questions from media, friends, fans and family could persist to the point where they — not Sam — become the distraction.But the only thing people know is whoever selects Sam in May’s draft will do so with the idea that they know how to prevent their rookie from being an issue. And then, the distraction Dansby is referring to would likely go away. No one truly knows if Michael Sam, who recently came out as being gay, will be a distraction for an NFL team should he be drafted by one.The Missouri linebacker would be the first openly gay player to be in the league — and while there is little doubt there have been others like him throughout the course of the league’s history — he would be the first not to keep it a secret during his playing days. 0 Comments Share Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “You’ll try to mask the situation, but it’s going to be hard, it’s going to be hard, man,” Dansby said. “Because it’s such a big topic. Him being the first guy to really come out and say those things, there’s going to be a lot of questions being asked day in and day out.”But those questions come from people who are not part of the team, not in the locker room. It is in there that Sam will need to be most accepted, though Dansby thinks it will be a bit of a challenge. “I think it will be difficult, just from the nature of the game,” he said. “And the history of the game and the things that go on in a locker room; I think it will be tough, I think it will be tough on him.“I think it will be real hard on him.”Sam seems ready to embrace the challenge, though. He came out to his Missouri teammates prior to the 2013 season, then helped lead the Tigers to a 12-win season and becoming a unanimous first-team All-American in the process. He tallied 48 tackles — 19 for loss — along with 11.5 sacks. If he can play like that in the NFL, it’s possible the conversation will go from him being a gay football player to him being a good football player.
As part of an effort to develop the next generation of supercomputers Cyprus became the fifteenth country to sign a European declaration on high-performance computing (HPC) this week, the European Commission said in a statement on Friday.According to the commission, supercomputers are at the core of major innovations in many areas such as personalised medicine, energy saving and smart urban planning. They also hold great potential for job creation and the competitiveness of the European economy.“Currently, the computing and data needs of European scientists and industry are not matching the computation time available in the EU. Moreover, the EU does not have the most powerful machines that some of their applications require. Therefore the European HPC users are increasingly processing their data outside the EU,” the commission said in a statement on its website, adding that the outsourcing may create problems related to privacy, data protection, commercial trade secrets and ownership of data.None of the EU supercomputers being in the global top 10 and the existing ones depending on non-European technology means the EU risks being deprived of strategic or technological know-how for innovation and competitiveness.The joint undertaking aims at pooling European and national resources to build and deploy across Europe supercomputers that will rank among the world’s top three by 2022-2023. The declaration was originally launched in March 2017 and signed by France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. Since then another eight countries have joined in addition to Cyprus – Belgium, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Greece, Croatia and the Czech Republic.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboola
