French masterchef cooks up a storm

first_imgTo celebrate the pursuit of consistent innovation, excellence and global talent, JW Marriott, Aerocity has organised an international programme named ‘Masters of Marriott’ – under which culinary mavens of Marriott International, as well as renowned chefs from across the world, will host masterclasses, ticketed events, meet and greets, and much more throughout the year.As part of the programme, Julien Royer – French Chef and co-owner of a 2-Michelin starred modern French restaurant was invited to engage with Marriott guests, and serve them the best from his kitchen. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainRoyer in an interview talked about dining scene in Singapore as well as his love for Indian cuisine over lunch – where he served visually delightful and authentic French food from his restaurant located at the iconic National Gallery Singapore. Highlight of the meal was ‘Cauliflower and curry tartlette’ which had a strong yet refreshing taste of Cinnamon. ‘Quinoa fritter with salsa and dehydrated cream’, ‘Celeriac root vegetable mash with mushroom ketchup and truffle’, ‘Potato Gaufrette with aspragus and smoked cream’ were equally enticing options to try. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardThe main course had ‘Scottish Salmon’ (Tomato cucumber salsa, wasabi mayo, shiso verde, yuzu sake foam) and ‘Toban Yaki Tofu Steak’ (Sauteed mushroom, asparagus, scallions, Korean BBQ sauce). Though his food is vividly loved by the people, Royer wishes to step out of his comfort zone and try experimenting with Indian cuisine. “I loved the cuisine’s diversity and was amazed by the variety of vegetarian food you get in India. I haven’t tried to cook anything as per Indian taste yet, but would surely love to incorporate one Indian dish in my restaurant’s menu.” But what would that be? Royer says, Tandoori will be his choice. “I love the tandoori flavour, its complexity and the way it last in your palette for a long.” It is interesting to note that Royer was one of the first people to open an entirely vegetarian restaurant in Singapore three years ago. “For me, vegetables are very important and should not be viewed as just an accompaniment but as equals to any protein on a plate.” He loves to challenge himself and experiment with vegetable/ingredients which people usually avoid. Commenting on the dining scenes in Singapore and India, Royer says, “I think Singapore is the cross point of different nationalities, culture, and religion. There are chefs from all across the world including Australia, India, Sri Lanka, Japan, opening their own restaurants. This makes the dining scene extremely interesting and competitive, leaving the restaurant owners with no option but to maintain the quality and offer best to the customers.” “I cannot comment on the Indian dining scene because I haven’t spent enough time…but I would love to explore some good food places soon,” he concludes.last_img read more

Amarinder hits back at Modi for politicising Jallianwala tragedy

first_imgChandigarh: Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Sunday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of playing “dirty politics” after the PM claimed that the Congress leader skipped an official event marking the Jallianwala Bagh massacre’s centenary as he was busy in “Congress parivar’s bhakti”.Singh alleged that the central government had deliberately chosen to hold a “parallel event” instead of supporting the initiatives and programmes of the state government. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The event was organised in Amritsar on Saturday by the Centre and it was attended by Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu. Singh claimed in a statement that he had personally approached the prime minister several times over the last two years to seek support for ensuring that the occasion is commemorated in a befitting manner but the Centre had failed to respond suitably. “Instead, the Modi government decided to hold its own event, quite evidently to score political brownie points in the backdrop of the Lok Sabha elections,” he alleged. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K”This was truly shocking considering that the prime minister is the chairman of the Jallianwala Bagh Trust,” Singh said. Congress president Rahul Gandhi and the chief minister had on Saturday morning paid floral tributes at the Jallianwala Bagh Memorial in Amritsar. On Saturday afternoon, M Venkaiah Naidu visited Jallianwala Bagh and paid tributes to those killed in the massacre on April 13, 1919. The ceremony was organised by the Union Ministry of Culture. Punjab Governor V P Singh Badnore and Punjab Cabinet Minister O P Soni were among others present at the function held in the afternoon. At a poll rally on Sunday in J&K’s Kathua, Modi said Singh boycotted the function because he was busy in “Congress parivar’s bhakti (appeasing the Gandhi family)”.last_img read more

Cuban Tobacco Factory to Open New Plant in Morocco

Rabat – Habanos, the arm of the Cuban state tobacco company, will invest 1 billion dirhams in a cigar and cigarette factory in Morocco.The Economist, in its September 21st edition, reported that Habanos is preparing to implement the first factory for the manufacture of tobacco products in the Casablanca region.According to the same source, the company scheduled to launch in December 2015, intends to invest no less than 1 billion dirhams in this factory. The new plant will produce cigarettes, cigarillos and cigars, most of them will be exported to the African market. Moulay Omar Zehraoui, President of Habanos, quoted by the newspaper as saying that “80 percent of the production will be exported mainly to Sub-Saharan Africa”.“With a total production of over 40 million packs of cigarettes per day, the plant will target primarily Senegal, Ivory Coast, Benin, Mali and Nigeria. The remaining 20 percent of production will be for the local market,” Zehraoui added.The company is expected to create about 600 jobs at its inception.The Economist informed that “cigarettes that will carry the Moroccan label will be sold for between 15 and 35 dirhams” with respect to the Moroccan market prices.Despite the brand-wide increase in cigarette prices since last year, the number of tobacco users in Morocco reached “about 7 million smokers, representing one fifth of the population,” with minors making up half a million of these figures, according to Rachida El Mokrie Al idrissi, Head of the National Coalition for the Fight Against Drugs. read more

How to manage workplace stress

first_imgRepublished with permission from Greatist.comWORKPLACE STRESS IS a serious subject. According to a survey from the American Psychological Association, more than one third of American workers experience chronic work stress — and this is costing American businesses billions of dollars a year in lost work hours and medical bills. More importantly, all this worrying at work can have serious consequences for our quality of life — not only at the office, but everywhere else as well. So how do we regain our sanity and take back our lives?After 17 years in the working world and another two as a business owner, I’ve learned a thing or two about workplace stress and burnout — and about the importance of managing stress so it doesn’t take over our lives. In honor of Stress Awareness Month, which runs throughout April this year, I want to share with you the formulas I’ve discovered for managing workplace stress.Letting Go of the “Invincibility” MythAs we begin to address workplace stress, I believe we need to start by reminding ourselves that we are not invincible.Remember when we were teenagers and thought we were invincible? We did stupid things like drive too fast, drink too much, and play with fire (either literally or figuratively). Many of us were lucky to make it out of our teens alive, what with our cavalier attitude toward mortality.At some point (usually in our late 20s or early 30s), many of us start to realise we aren’t actually invincible. People we know die. We stop doing the blatantly stupid stuff and start doing more of the “adult” stuff, such as working long hours, stressing over how great the front yard looks, or lying awake worrying about missing a deadline at work.But it turns out the “adult” stuff can be just as dangerous as driving too fast. We work 60-plus hours a week as if there are no consequences. We run around creating the perfect household, trying to be the perfect partner, the perfect parent, or the perfect community pillar. We get stretched thin with obligations, deadlines, and trying to prove our worth. In other words, we are still acting as if we’re invincible.The truth of the matter is that we are not invincible. We burn out. We get sick. We are vulnerable. In fact, stress is responsible for 75-90 per cent of all doctor’s office visits. Stress contributes to heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and autoimmune diseases [1] [2].In other words, stress shouldn’t be ignored. The good news is, coping with stress is actually pretty simple.Three-Step Plan for Managing Workplace StressTo effectively manage stress, we need to address it in at least three areas of our lives: our physical health, our mental health, and our sense of purpose. Below, I’ve detailed stress-relieving tips for each of these areas.One: Start By De-Stressing Your BodyIn modern life, we spend far more time engaging our bodie’s stress responses than we do engaging our relaxation responses. This has serious consequences for our physical health, as too much stress can accelerate the aging process, suppress our immune systems, and leave us feeling fatigued and depressed [3] [4].Since stress is a physical and hormonal chain reaction, the first place to start is using your body to interrupt the response. Indeed, the foundation for living a stress-free, physically energized life lies in what we eat, how (and how often) we move, and how much we sleep. The following are some of my favorite tips for eradicating stress on a physical level.Stress-Relieving Tips for the Body1. Eat whole foods. Processed food can cause us to feel anxious and can even contribute to ADD. We can prevent these symptoms by eating whole foods, eating more fruits and vegetables (especially green ones), and getting a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids from salmon or seeds such as hemp, chia and flax. Nourishing your body will make you better prepared to take on whatever challenges you’ll face at work.2. Exercise regularly. Physical activity releases feel-good, stress-relieving chemicals. Every time you find your stress level on the rise, get up and move. You can stretch, run in place, dance, or walk around the office or building. Doing so gets your blood and endorphins flowing, makes you happy, and turns off your flight or fight stress response. Boost the physical benefits of moving by taking several deep, cleansing breathes that trigger your relaxation stressor.3. Get enough sleep. Work stressors are magnified when we’re sleep-deprived and foggy-brained. Aim for eight hours of sleep each night. Sleeping well can help you solve problems with a clearer mind and even boost your intelligence.Two: Remember To De-Stress Your MindWhen I ask audiences the question, “What is stress?”, I typically receive answers such as “deadlines,” “traffic,” “over-commitment,” “not enough time,” and even “having to deal with “stupid” people.” These answers suggest that many of us believe stress is something that happens to us. In reality, stress is merely our response to all those external factors.The stress response is a function of our autonomic nervous system’s flight-or-fight response. Specifically, stress is triggered by a thought or belief that we are in danger — and our body then goes into overdrive producing cortisol and adrenaline to help us get out of danger as fast as possible.Let’s repeat that for emphasis: Stress begins in our minds via a thought or belief. Thus, an important key to neutralizing stress is to fuel our minds with more positive, happy, gratitude-filled thoughts in order to trigger our stress responses less often.Stress-Relieving Tips for the Mind1. Cultivate gratitude. Things will go wrong throughout our workday, or at least not according to plan. This is inevitable. We can take the sting out of these negative events by focusing on what’s great in our life. Each evening, write down three things you are grateful for. They can be as simple as seeing a gorgeous sunrise or being complimented on your new pair of shoes.2. Meditate regularly. A consistent meditation practice — even if it’s only five minutes a day — may help lower blood pressure, and can help us control the thoughts that can trigger stress. The next time you get stressed because your boss just added another task to your already overflowing to-do list, stop and take a breath. Shake out your body, sit back down and meditate for five minutes.3. Learn to say “no”. Being overbooked, overworked, and overcommitted will lead to stress. We often feel obligated to say “yes” to everything for fear we won’t be liked. But the greatest act of stress relief is exercising your right to say no. You can be polite but firm: Explain to others that you are overcommitted and that you must say no. And yes, you can even tell your boss “no”; just explain that one more project will mean the quality of your work will drop. Negotiate priorities.Three: Don’t Lose Sight of Your PurposeEach of us is more than the work we do. We are creative, in relationships, spiritual, and passionate. Connecting with our whole selves by fueling our sense of purpose is the keystone for less stress and more happiness, both in the office and outside of it.“What’s that?”, you say? What is purpose and what does it have to do with stress? As I’ve written before, purpose can be thought of as a person’s calling in the world — but it’s really broader than that. It encompasses everything from meaningful work, to relationships, to the hobbies that brings us joy and meaning. Purpose is the expression of our own unique spirit.When we starve our purpose — by not engaging with our work, suppressing our creativity, or ignoring our relationships (including the one with ourselves) — we trigger our stress response. When our life is full of nothing but work and obligations, we begin to feel bitter, resentful, depressed, and even angry. The antidote to these feelings is to focus on fueling all facets of our life. Bonus: Doing so will give us even more for which we can be grateful.Stress-Relieving Tips for Your Purpose1. Schedule quality social time. When we’re working crazy hours, we can find ourselves detached from our relationships. Each week, schedule some time with a loved to just be together, hang out, and laugh. No work talk allowed, and no checking the smartphone. Disengage from work and reengage with those that matter.2. Get creative. Remember how much fun you had as a kid doing crafts. You might have stopped because your last creation wasn’t perfect, or because you didn’t have the time. But it’s important to carve out some time to be creative and tap into your inner kid. Creativity can include anything from cooking dinner, handwriting a card to a friend, or creating a vision board. Get out the scissors and glue stick and just play.3. Get spiritual. Regardless of what “spirituality” means to you, one thing is certain: When we are overworked and chronically stressed, we can forget about our place in the bigger picture. Connecting with your spiritual roots through prayer, meditation, chanting or other rituals is an excellent way to get perspective on what’s stressing you and relieve that pressure. Another simple tip? Pull out a world map and reflect on how big the earth is, and where you fit in.Managing Workplace Stress: The TakeawayWe cannot eliminate or escape stress at the workplace. It is a fact of modern life. Yet we can neutralise stress in all areas of our lives by fuelling our lives with meaningful actions, thoughts, and beliefs. We all deserve to live a happy, contented life. It’s never too late to start making yours.How will you neutralise stress this week?

Children do better when minded by relatives and childminders rather than fulltime

first_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Nov 2nd 2016, 6:01 AM Wednesday 2 Nov 2016, 6:01 AM Image: Niall Carson PA Wire/PA Images File photo Children do better when minded by relatives and childminders rather than full-time parents, says ESRI The study looked at 9,000 children under the age of 5 in Ireland. 23,518 Views Share275 Tweet Email7 center_img By Sean Murray http://jrnl.ie/3056572 CHILDREN CARED FOR by relatives or figures such as childminders experience fewer emotional and peer problems than children who are looked after by their parents full-time, according to a new report published today by the ESRI and Pobal.The report looked at how children behaved at age three and age five. It based its judgements on children’s social skills, such as sharing and kindness to other children, and their difficulties, such as behavioural problems, emotional difficulties and peer problems, as reported by their parents and teachers.Across the different types of care – care from parents, relative, a non-relative and in a crèche – children had fewer problems when cared for by non-parental relatives or non-relatives, such as childminders, than children cared for full-time by their parents.The study looked at around half of the circa 9,000 children, more than half of whom were cared for by people other than their parents.Children in crechesWhile both parents and teachers did not highlight any major differences in socio-emotional difficulties between children who were in full-time parental care or were taken care of in a crèche, children from the lowest social categories or lone-parent households were shown to benefit more from crèche care.The report did, however, highlight that children who spent over 30 hours a week in a crèche showed a slightly higher level of socio-emotional difficulties compared to children who were taken care of by their parents, only.While figures from the report show differences in children’s social skills and emotional difficulties depending on the type of care they received, it does highlight that other factors such as the child’s health, gender socio-economic background, family structure, and family factors such as parenting style and parental stress had a greater effect on these issues.Boys were more likely to experience some form of emotional or behavioural issues, as were children living in households experiencing financial difficulties and those living in less safe neighbourhoods.“Statistically significant”One of the authors of the report, Helen Russell, associate research professor at the ESRI, told TheJournal.ie that while the differences between parental care and non-parental care were small, they were still “statistically significant”.She said: “There is already a move towards centre-based care as more and more parents make that choice. Relatives still have a very important role to play in childcare and this report shows the benefits that care from a family member can have.There are certainly benefits to children of having forms of care outside the home. New measures to assist those paying for childcare announced in the Budget will certainly help, but the emphasis on quality across all forms of care is paramount.”As announced in the recent Budget, a new subsidy scheme will provide parental-means tested subsidies toward the cost of childcare for children aged six months to 15 years and universal subsidies of up to €80 a month or €900 a year for all children aged between six months and three years.Children’s Minister Katherine Zappone told TheJournal.ie in a Facebook Live interview that she is exploring proposals to bring childminders into the childcare subsidies scheme, and said that she understood that some parents have a “huge preference” to have their children looked after by childminders.The data used to compile this report came from the Growing up in Ireland study, a government-funded study of children being carried out jointly by the ESRI and Trinity College Dublin.The study, entitled, Childcare, Early Education and Socio-emotional Outcomes at Age 5: Evidence from the Growing Up in Ireland Study, is available to view on the ESRI website.READ: Giving parents a tax credit for childcare would have cost nearly €600mREAD: ‘The sector is in real crisis’: New report reveals the cost of providing childcare 37 Comments Short URL File photo Image: Niall Carson PA Wire/PA Imageslast_img read more

Truth Commission Is To Teach A Better Lesson

first_imgThe atrocities committed against people of African descent by people of European descent who belong to the same geopolitical space in South Africa were so ruthless that it would have taken another century to unearth all the bodies and try those who perpetrated the crime. Revenge would have been the order of the day and political instability would be the outcome.Hence Nelson Mandela utilised the truth and reconciliation commission headed by Bishop Desmond Tutu in order to obtain voluntary confession and forgiveness to close the chapter and start afresh again. In The Gambia those who established the Coalition took note of all the atrocities that took place and also created a truth reconciliation and reparations commission in order to promote voluntary confession and forgiveness in order to close the chapter and start afresh.It is therefore important for those who preside over the commission to be inspired with the same spirit of helping the Gambian people to have a closure. It is very strange that the discourse is moving away from the objectives of the truth reconciliation and reparations commission and is being focused on the 1997 Constitution which provides for the setting up of commissions of enquiry under section 200 of the Constitution to do precisely what is being done now by the commissions of inquiry such as the truth reconciliation and reparations commission.If the quality of justice is to be enhanced, individual demand for due process, interpretation of laws and protection under law must be respected and the competent courts should be encouraged to hear the cases of such persons without fear or favour, affection or ill will. Any mob justice is a reflection of a state of impunity in the making. Those who encourage it are no better than those who are perpetrators of injustice.The Gambian citizen will always be reminded that the current institutions like the Constitutional Review Commission, the Truth Reconciliation and Reparations Commission and the National Human Rights Commission are all byproducts of the Coalition 2016 transitional agenda. Barrow’s Manifesto and the agreement establishing the Coalition were all authored by the members of Coalition 2016.The 1997 Constitution was what the Jammeh administration could offer the Gambian people after scrutiny by all those who wanted to participate in the review, including the Bar Association of The Gambia. This Constitution could have been amended by the new administration in less than a year to remove all the provisions that were considered to be inappropriate. However, the nation was asked by the Barrow Cabinet to wait for a comprehensive review after amending the 65 year age limit.It is that 1997 Constitution which was relied on to remove the Jammeh administration. Those who argue that such a Constitution should have been rejected by the voters have the luxury now to engage in such arguments since change has been brought for them. What is left now is to build a new Gambia. If we look at the past, we will only see how the Jawara administration abandoned the 1970 Constitution by abdicating political office and allowing coup makers to suspend the Constitution and rule by decree and how unelected citizens struggled to restore constitutional rule and move the nation forward to election and a multi-party system.If those coup makers could be pushed to embrace a Constitution which could be relied on to remove them from office, only those who wish to waste the time of the nation would begin to point out the wrong things that were in that constitution which everybody knew instead of showing how the right steps were taken to remove the Jammeh administration from office so that the wrong things could be removed once and for all.We hope individual personalities without power to do any harm would not be utilised to promote a spirit of vengeance that is out of place. A person who has murdered a thousand people can never be killed a thousand times to avenge the deaths of all of them. However, he/she could ask for the forgiveness of a thousand families to enable them to have closure. This is the spirit of restorative justice which should guide all Gambians during this transitional phase.last_img read more

HP Omen X Emperium 65 is a great gaming monitor youll never

first_img Comment Preview • The HP Omen X Desktop is for gamers on the edge 1 Review • HP’s PC gaming flagship turns PC gaming on its side The hardware in Metro Exodus’ menu system is practically life size on this monitor. Lori Grunin/CNET Gaming monitor manufacturers love to throw around the term “immersive” when referring to their products — the bigger and curvier it is, the louder the proclamations get. Well, no monitor to date can hold an immersive candle to the HP Omen X Emperium 65. It swallows you whole. I’m lucky it let me out long enough to get this written.It’s also $5,000 (about £3,830 or AU$7,000). So the most frequent question we get is “How is it better than a good 65-inch TV, which costs half as much?” The answer, at least for most people, is it’s not. But for a tiny subset of PC gamers, it’s more fun than a battle royale of monkeys.The Emperium was first announced at CES 2018 as part of Nvidia’s BFGD (Big Format Gaming Display) initiative, but HP is the only manufacturer from the group to have actually shipped a monitor. It feels like a Frankenstein’s monster of features: There’s a 65-inch Nvidia Shield smart HDR TV-slash-monitor that supports Nvidia’s G-Sync adaptive refresh technology and integrates Google Assistant. (So if you value your privacy, you may think of it as a personal-data-collecting portal of doom.) 22 Photos Mentioned Above HP Omen X CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

Partly because pieces of it are bound to obsolesce within the next couple of years and partly because you’re probably better off spending less and putting the money you save into better-performing hardware and more games, at least until gaming figures out where it’s heading — the cloud, your phone, next-gen consoles or someplace as-yet unimagined.And she’ll have fun, fun, funConnected to a PC, the Emperium’s a jumbo-sized equivalent of a great 27-inch HDR (technically, HDR10) monitor like the Acer Predator X27, with similar specs but really, really big. I hooked the Emperium to a Falcon Northwest desktop equipped with an overclocked (to 4.9GHz) Intel Core i9-9900K and dual Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti cards. That’s pretty much the configuration you need to really appreciate all aspects of the Emperium simultaneously — the 4K, HDR and G-Sync.I didn’t see any artifacts, no matter what frame rate I threw at it, whether I went far beyond its native 120Hz (or 144Hz overclocked) or well below it — because 4K at ultra-everything including ray tracing still drops to unplayable frame rates. In this respect, it was one of the best G-Sync monitors I’ve used.While a 27-inch HDR monitor looks great, at 65 inches it really wows. The size alone ramps up Resident Evil 2 from scary-if-you-play-in-the-dark to leave-the-lights-on terrifying.Each game handles HDR differently. And because you’re looking at computer-generated graphics and not the real world depicted in movies, you don’t have the frame of reference to tell you whether a game’s colors look “correct” or the control you need to fine tune them. You just go with what appeals most and make sure the shadows aren’t so dark that you can find the object you’re looking for and won’t get ambushed by a mutant or a zombie. The otherworldly glowing reds and eye-searing brights in Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice lend it that extra touch of surreality, so who cares if her face paint probably isn’t the correct shade of blue?hp-omen-x-emperium-65-8The on-screen display. (Aside: Dear Google, can you please suggest “try searching for ‘how to make Google stop suggesting things'” instead? Thanks!) Lori Grunin/CNET I didn’t run a full suite of tests in the short time I had with the monitor, just enough to confirm that it hits the most important marks. In HDR mode it covers 97 percent of the P3 D6500 color gamut — that’s close to one of the best OLED TVs we’ve tested, which hits 98.4 percent (95 percent in SDR). It’s got a typical black level of 0.009 nits (minimum is 0.001). So it’s not OLED-level black, but it’s visibly impressive. It seems to overshoot peak brightness to roughly 1,100 nits and then gradually decline, outputting over 1,000 nits in 5 percent, 10 percent and 25 percent windows.The VA-IPS panel has 384-zone local dimming with no edge bleed that I could spot. It has typical off-axis viewing for the technology, so all but the most oblique angles look good.The soundbar that comes with the Emperium is an aesthetically pleasing, well-built and aurally balanced 2.1 system that fits snugly under the display and can be controlled by the Shield remote. But it connects to the monitor with a surprisingly low-end analog cable. It does have a DSP input.hp-omen-x-emperium-65-5Enlarge ImageOne nice design touch is the automatic lighting strip and illuminated labels.

Even if that’s just a bug, you can’t use the ports as a hub the way you can on a desktop monitor because there’s no upstream USB connection from the PC to the display.Nor did the monitor like our 5GHz network — it kept saying that the signal was weak and refusing to connect, even after I moved the monitor into the same room as the router. A keyboard, mouse and controller all connected through Bluetooth, but the controller especially tended to be too laggy, even for simply navigating Steam.Not ready for the futureIf you take the monitor capabilities out of the equation, the Emperium’s just a pretty good, overpriced Shield TV with the same annoying remote. All non-PC gaming, whether you’re using a console via HDMI or cloud via GeForce Now (GFN), is limited to a 60Hz refresh rate and generally delivers the frame rate to match that, so you don’t need the refresh-rate versatility of the Emperium. Nor do you need a TV this high-end to play games over GFN. In fact, the broad tonal range of the display ends up emphasizing the artifacts — color contouring, desaturation and blockiness — of the compressed stream delivered by cloud-based games. GFN and the Google universe, including Android apps, Play games, streaming and video, adds value to the package, but you can get a box for $180 and attach it to a $2,500 OLED TV for the same capabilities. The sound bar should probably be optional.The Emperium offers fast refresh, but only connected to a PC with an Nvidia graphics card over DisplayPort. The HDMI connection is fixed at 60Hz for 4K. There’s a 1080p/120Hz option in the menu that I didn’t try, but HD on a 65-inch monitor has a pixel pitch you could drive a truck through (you sit much closer while gaming than you would just watching movies) and while it’s nice, it certainly isn’t worth five grand. 60Hz over HDMI is fine for now because console output is fixed there, too. But we’re expecting new consoles from Sony and Microsoft within the next couple of years, and you can bet they’ll have HDMI 2.1 connections to support variable or adaptive refresh technologies.So the Emperium won’t be able to take advantage of one of the most significant technology improvements to come to consoles in a while. And any gamer who’s going to plonk down this much for a monitor probably has a couple of consoles in addition to a power desktop, especially in the age of exclusives.It’s usually unwise to buy the first generation of anything — I’m looking at you, 5G and foldable phones — and while this is a good and polished one, the Emperium 65 is definitely a first-gen product.last_img read more

Report Women At Texas Community Colleges Arent Getting The Kind Of Birth

first_img Share Austin Community College student Katran Packard said she was hoping not to get pregnant before her expected graduation in December.“And now we’re having a baby in December,” said the business administration student and mother of two.For Packard, 28, it’s been a battle to find effective birth control for the past several years. While living in Austin, she got Depo-Provera shots — an effective form of birth control — at a Planned Parenthood clinic. After moving about 80 miles away to Caldwell in 2011, she was unable to continue the injections because the clinic was too far away and she could no longer afford them. Instead, Packard said, she turned to condoms and the withdrawal method to avoid pregnancy.Packard, who had her first baby after getting pregnant at 18, said financial barriers and a lack of access to clinics are barring her from getting the birth control she wants. She is not alone. A new study from the Population Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin found that Texas community college women are using condoms and withdrawal even though they would prefer to use more effective methods like intrauterine devices, or IUDs, and birth control pills. “What that tells us is that we could do a better job — we as in colleges, clinics — could be doing a better job in helping women to get the more effective methods they want to be using,” said Kristine Hopkins, the lead author of the report, which surveyed more than 1,000 Texas community college women in fall 2014 and spring 2015.Report: Unmet demand for short-acting hormonal and long-acting reversible contraception among community college students in TexasThe majority of Texas community college women are currently using contraceptive methods they don’t wish to use, according to a new report.The withdrawal method and condoms are some of the least effective forms of birth control. A couple who uses the withdrawal method has a 22 percent chance of getting pregnant in a year; for condoms, it’s 18 percent. More effective methods include IUDs (.05 percent) and birth control implants (.2 percent). The report found that 38 percent of women surveyed had no health insurance. Nationwide, 13.5 percent of community college students and 3.5 percent of college students overall are uninsured.In 2011, GOP state leaders excluded Planned Parenthood from state programs that supported family planning services, causing several clinics across the state to close. These closures may partially explain why only 7 percent of surveyed women cited Planned Parenthood as their source of care, the report said. The study also found that 59 percent of uninsured community college women do not have a usual source of care for reproductive health services. Among community college women with private health insurance, 27 percent did not have a source of care.Hopkins called these numbers “striking.” For sexually active women, getting services like birth control, Pap smears and testing for sexually transmitted infections is vital. But for many women, getting pregnant is the first time they come in contact with reproductive health services, Hopkins said.While community college women seek out more effective birth control, they may not find it at their campus health center, the report said. For example, Dallas County Community College District does not have doctors at its health clinics and does not provide prescriptions for medications like birth control. So nurses at the clinics refer students to outside doctors and clinics for IUDs and other birth control. Linda Skidmore is one of those nurses. She said some of her students can’t afford stronger birth control methods, or might not know how to find a doctor.Skidmore provides students with condoms and encourages them to “make their own decisions” about the kind of birth control they want to use. By contrast, a nearby four-year university — the University of North Texas at Dallas — provides women’s health services at its Student Health and Wellness Center, providing birth control pills and IUDs, according to its website.The report offered recommendations for colleges such as providing pregnancy prevention information at orientations or connecting students with family planning services for low-income women like the federal Title X grant program or the state’s family planning program — both of which serve uninsured and undocumented people.“Community college students are attempting to improve their lives,” Hopkins said. “And an unplanned pregnancy and an unplanned birth can really derail their educational goals.”Disclosure: The University of Texas at Austin, the Texas State University System, Planned Parenthood and the Austin Community College District have been financial supporters of The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan news organization that is funded in part by donations from members, foundations and corporate sponsors.

Press release reveals journalists believe everything they see on the Internet

first_img ‘Paul the Octopus’ now an iPhone app The Internet is buzzing with the story of a new study that today’s students are so gullible they will believe anything they see on the Internet, and are even willing to believe in the existence of an elusive tree octopus when shown the website for this “endangered species.” (The website states it is linked to the “Kelvinic University branch of the Wild Haggis Conservation Society.”) The Pacific Northwest tree octopus (Octopus paxarbolis) is a mythical creature invented in 1998 by Lyle Zapato, but the story circulating on the Internet this week often mistakenly has it that Professor Donald J. Leu, director of the New Literacies Research Laboratory at the University of Connecticut, invented the tree octopus and designed its website to test the gullibility of today’s “digital native” students, who are known for their online savviness. One problem with the story is that it is not news. According to the University website the experiment was done on 25 students in 2006. Dr Leu also reported on a similar experiment with 53 7th grade students and the tree octopus website at the Research Conference of the International Reading Association in Toronto, Canada in 2007. There is nothing about new research on this topic on the New Literacies Research Laboratory website, and the information on which the current batch of stories is based is a Pearson press release , which announces a talk by Dr Leu in Texas, at which he talked about the research and its implications.The Tree Octopus and Dog Island websites are among spoof sites included in Dr Leu’s handout: New Literacies for New Times: Preparing our Students for the 21st Century. The sites are suggested as good resources for teaching students how to work out that websites contain false or misleading information.Dr Leu has said that students need to learn to critically evaluate what they read on the Internet, because his studies have shown that students are gullible and do believe the tree octopus story and other hoax websites, and they are unskilled in discriminating good sources of information from unreliable sources on the Internet.Dr Leu spoke about the research at the Texas Association of School Administrators Conference at the end of January.

Disappointment at the polls leaves Liberation voters wondering if their party is

first_imgRelated posts:Araya campaign inflates latest poll numbers Ruling party presidential candidate Johnny Araya sees plot against his campaign in media leak Proudly PLN? National Liberation Party bans former presidential candidate and ex-mayor Johnny Araya from running for office for 4 years A cheer burst out of the crowd of white-and-green-clad National Liberation Party (PLN) supporters as the first round of votes came in early Sunday night.With 9 percent counted by the Supreme Elections Tribunal at 8:30 p.m., the ruling PLN candidate Johnny Araya had what seemed a commanding lead at 36.24 percent, followed by Citizen Action Party candidate Luis Guillermo Solís, with 22.8 percent.“I feel excellent, excellent. We’re winning and that’s what’s important,” said Jenia Ibarba, 29, waving a giant green-and-white striped PLN flag.“There’s not going to be a second round, no way. Liberation’s going to win in the first,” she said.But as the night wore on, the flags started to fall limp and the music got louder as organizers tried to buoy their supporters’ spirits as Araya’s lead fell and Solís’ rose.The dancing at the Crown Plaza Corobicí Hotel continued, but PLN supporters started keeping their eyes on the results projected on the three large screens against the ballroom’s back wall.When Araya’s campaign chief Antonio Álvarez Desanti came out just before 10 p.m., the evening hit its nadir. Desanti formally recognized Araya would face a runoff.“As they say in aviation, today we’re having a stopover in February to land definitively in April,” he said.While the crowd cheered, tears started to fall down some supporters’ cheeks even as they danced, their candidate suddenly faced with a difficult opponent in the coming months on the night that was supposed to cement the PLN in office for a historic third term.Solís had risen to 28.4 percent to Araya’s 31.2 percent. By the end of the night, Solís would reach 30.77 percent to Araya’s 29.68 percent, taking the lead he could never achieve in polls as a candidate.Araya continued the air travel metaphor:“Today’s outcome has not caused any turbulence in my heart or mind.”Despite the former San José mayor’s sunny outlook, the coming months will not likely be a smooth ride.In a Jan. 28 poll by Semanario Universidad, Solís easily beat Araya in a runoff election 46.8 percent to 29.4 percent, respectively.While Costa Rica’s electoral polling has proven less than stellar, Araya supporters seemed to agree.“We have to be optimists but it’s difficult,” Ivania Álvarez, 44, told The Tico Times.“He’s going to be strong, Luis Guillermo [Solís],” said Kenneth Villalobos, a 31-year-old PLN booster. “I think he has a lot of support from other parties like the Broad Front Party and the Libertarian Movement Party because they’re all going against the years National Liberation was in power. Eight years – it’s a lot. I think it’s going to be complicated for Liberation.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Nugget as she was known to her family had been celebrating in her cousin’s home when gunman Moses Phillips who had reportedly been aiming at a man who was on the porch shot through the front window fatally wounding her as she ran toward the back of the house It was a sudden shocking death that devastated the Whites and many others in their neighborhood of Englewood ChicagoRelatedportfolioThe Small Town Police Force Behind the Viral Photo of an OverdoseportfolioThe Small Town Police Force Behind the Viral Photo of an OverdoseThe young girl’s story quickly caught the attention of photographer Carlos Javier Ortiz who had planned on documenting the effects of gun related violence on communities not long before Shocked by the brutal nature of the incident — and struck by how similar it was to the death of 14-year-old Starkesia Reed who had been killed by stray gunfire a few blocks away just days before — he approached the White family with the aim of documenting the aftermath"The next day I was at the house There was a birthday cake on the table that didn’t get cut [and] I spent about two hours talking to [Siretha’s] mother’s cousin outside" Ortiz says "We talked about a lot of things that were wrong in this neighborhood"Englewood often leads the city of Chicago in homicides though there was a reported 19 percent decrease in 2013"[Siretha’s] mother called me that same night she is a really good friend of mine now [and said]: ‘I want you to do something I want you to come to the radio station with me tomorrow and photograph me’ [And then] she basically let me follow her home"Starting that day Ortiz embedded himself with both the Whites and a larger community locally and nationally in an attempt to start a conversation about gun violence and its consequences It evolved into a project that spanned eight years and one that saw him travel between neighborhoods in Chicago and Philadelphia Now much of the work appears in his newest book We All We Got which will be on show at the Bronx Documentary Center in New York until March 22 2015The images that emerged from his project are as powerful and heart-breaking as they are unnerving and thought-provoking In one photograph we see Albert Vaughn who was beaten to death with a baseball bat in his coffin as relatives mourn In another we see the mother of Fakhur Uddin grieving outside the store where he was killed as he opened the family business in August 2008Ortiz sees the often difficult work he produced as a collaboration and would sometimes show his photographs to subjects And while he sought to preserve journalistic distance he couldn’t help but feel involved on a personal level with the communities and individuals who opened up to him"I saw boys and girls growing up and I couldn’t really do anything for them I would see [a] change in the boys when they got to be 11 [or] 12 They would start walking differently acting differently" he says "They start to pick up all these things from the other guys in the neighborhood who picked them up from the other guys So it’s like a circle"Indeed having embedded himself with families for so long he started to witness tragedies unfold around him: "[The White’s] next door neighbor he would DJ and sell shoes on the side just to support his family One day somebody robbed him and just murdered him""It started becoming really hard I started losing people too" he adds "They were my friends people in the neighborhood were my friends That was kind of a big wake up call"Carlos Javier Ortiz is a documentary photographer and experimental filmmaker based in Chicago We All We Got is available now The Bronx Documentary Center will host an opening reception for the book Jan 24 2015 and will show Ortiz’s work from Jan 24 to
