Senate upholds Treasury decision to ease Russia sanctions

first_imgWASHINGTON — The Senate has narrowly upheld a Treasury Department decision to lift sanctions from three companies connected to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska.A vote to move forward on a Democratic resolution to reverse Treasury’s decision failed Wednesday on a 57-42 vote, just short of the 60 votes needed. The vote came up short even though several Republicans had criticized the sanctions move and 11 of them voted with Democrats.At issue is a December announcement from the Treasury Department that the U.S. would lift sanctions on the companies linked to Deripaska, including the aluminum giant Rusal.The Treasury Department says the Russian companies have committed to separating from Deripaska, but Democrats say he hasn’t relinquished enough control.Mary Clare Jalonick, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Ebola may be cause of 5 more deaths in Congo UN health

According to WHO, the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Congo has reported five deaths from six new cases of suspected acute haemorrhagic fever, in the Mbomo district of Congo’s Cuvette Ouest region, on the border with Gabon. These reports are the first received by WHO of ebola in that region since April. However 32 confirmed cases of ebola, including 20 deaths, were reported in Congo’s Mbomo district prior to 29 March while in April, the Gabonese Ministry of Health confirmed 65 cases of ebola, including 53 deaths, from villages in the border region north of Mekambo. WHO reports the Gabon outbreak was traced to contact with an infected gorilla.A team from the Ministry of Health and WHO is in the district investigating the suspected ebola outbreak and collecting samples, which will be forwarded to laboratories in Gabon for analysis. Experts from other organizations are also in the region investigating suspicious animal deaths.Ebola, which is transmitted via direct contact with the blood or other bodily fluids of an infected person, causes death in up to 90 per cent of all cases, according to WHO. There is no specific treatment or vaccine for the disease, which is often characterized by the sudden onset of fever, weakness, muscle pain, headache and sore throat. This is followed by vomiting, diarrhoea, rash, limited kidney and liver functions, and both internal and external bleeding. read more

UK aftermarket unveils automotive solutions at Automechanika Middle East

The UK pavilion has returned for the third time to Automechanika Middle East, 25 – 27 May, in Dubai, to preview some of the world’s leading technologies in the aftermarket sector. Hosted by SMMT and supported by UKTI, this year’s group of UK-based suppliers and manufacturers will showcase a rapidly expanding portfolio of vehicle parts and components, accessories, repair and maintenance solutions, as well as IT and management systems, providing business decision makers with access to UK aftermarket expertise under one roof.SMMT chief executive Paul Everitt said, “Each year, the UK pavilion at the Automechanika Middle East trade show attracts an increasing number of exhibitors as UK-based companies develop exciting new aftermarket innovations. The breadth and diversity of UK automotive supply chain is of considerable interest to the Middle East market, as is the ability to support a wide range of vehicle manufacturers and models in aftermarket and accessories. Prices play an important role in determining market share and the UK is now very competitive due to the pound versus US dollar exchange rate, making collaboration between the two markets particularly appealing.” Alongside overseas projects such as Automechanika Middle East, SMMT continues to provide business opportunities, market information and trade advice from key territories around the globe.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

The 10 Geekiest Animated Series of AllTime

first_imgWith news of an impending Angry Birds animated series, it seemed like an appropriate time to ask the PCMag staff what they considered the geekiest animated series of all time. We got plenty of answers–and even more nostalgia–but somehow managed to cut the list down to 10 shows (well, 10 shows and a lengthy honorable mention list).Check out the winners after the jump–and let us know what we left off in the comments section.Dexter’s LaboratoryA fifth grade genius with a mad scientist-style accent runs a secret lab out of his parents’ house–it’s the secret dream of nerdy indoor kids everywhere. Dexter has it all–magic elixirs, jetpacks, and just about everything else a elementary school kid could ever possibly want, if only a pesky older sister and a neighboring arch-nemesis weren’t perpetually foiling his plans. This show affected the way I said “laboratory” for about a decade.Dungeons & DragonsThe RPG came out of the basement for this CBS series staring six friends trapped in the D&D world. Bonus points for featuring Howard the Duck creator Steve Gerber on the writing staff.FuturamaFuturama is, basically The Simpsons for Simpsons geeks who are maybe too geeky for The Simpsons. We mean that in the nicest way possible, of course. The principle cast is comprised of four humans, a robot, a Cyclops, and some sort of mollusky alien thing. Toss in a spaceship and more quantum mechanic jokes than you can shake a string theory at, and you may well have the geekiest show on TV.GigantorSet in the far off year of 2000, this 1964 anime series also played to the dreams of every young boy, centering around 12-year-old Jimmy Sparks who had his very own pet flying gigantic robot. Oh man, who are we kidding–we’d still take a pet flying gigantic robot.Invader ZimCreated by comic artist Jhonen Vasquez, Invader Zim sometimes feels less like an animated series than an x-ray of a comic book nerd’s brain. The show follows the adventure of a failed alien invader who has infiltrated an American elementary school.ReBootReBoot was the first fully CGI animated series to air on TV. Given the limited capability of computer animators in the mid-90s, it just made sense to set the thing inside a computer, Tron-style. Star Trek: The Animated SeriesI’m beginning to think that no Gearlog list would be complete without some manner of Star Trek reference. Thing is, when you send any kind of question out to the PCMag staff, at least three reponses will contain the words “Star Trek.” This mid-70s series picks up where the original series left off. Most of the original cast, including William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, and DeForest Kelley, reprised their much beloved roles.Star Wars: Clone WarsDitto this. Two separate animated series of similar name have explored the gaps in George Lucas’s ever-expanding galaxy far, far away.Super Mario Bros. Super ShowNintendo’s two hottest properties–Mario and Zelda–bookended this late-80s “super” show. Honorable mentions go to its followup Captain N & the Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and the Pac-Man animated series.TransformersI can just imagine the pitch meeting for this beloved 80s series–robots that turn into cars and stuff. It’s no wonder that Transformers captured the imagination of so many young viewers. The show ran from 1984-1987, and has since spawned countless toys, lunchboxes, a followup series, and two (soon to be three) feature films.Honorable Mentions:The TickInspector GadgetPink & the BrainRobot ChickenCode LyokoRocky & Bullwinkle Laser Tag Academy Sealab 2021  The Real GhostbustersSchoolhouse Rocklast_img read more

Investment Group Eyes Mat Su for Senior Facility

first_imgAn Idaho company is looking into the possibility of constructing an assisted living facility near Palmer.Douglas Clegg, CEO of Spring Creek Capital in Boise, told the Matanuska Susitna Borough Assembly recently that he has met with Borough officials on tentative plans to purchase property as a location for future transitional housing for seniors. Clegg says discussions center on the fact that there is no facility in Mat Su designed specifically for the care of seniors after they are released from acute care at local hospitals:“Currently you do not have what we would call a rehabilitative post acute or sub-acute facility in the greater Mat Su, which is designed in large measure to help people move from a hospital situation to their homes. ” And so consequently what is happening right now, is that they’re full, they are staying in their swing beds, they don’t have a place to go, they are going home prematurely, and they come back to the hospital for repeat visits, and it’s causing some real challenges down there.”Clegg says he’s met with representatives of both Mat Su’s senior centers, and with Assembly members on a likely piece of property to purchase, and is looking at four acres located near Mat Su Regional Hospital that is currently occupied by the Mat Su Convention and Visitor’s Bureau [CVB]. Spring Creek Capital has made a cash offer and pledged one million dollars in earnest money on the property, according to Borough manager John Moosey.“It is early, but it is my understanding that they [Spring Creek Capital] would be the owner and operator of the facility,” Moosey says.Moosey says the Borough owns the land .“Because the property is held in title by the Mat Su Borough, they’ll have to go through the normal process for any sale by the Borough, and that will essentially include Assembly approval.” Currently, the property and the building on it are undergoing an appraisal. The building, which houses the visitors bureau,  would be part of the sale. Moosey says  the CVB has planned for a year to move  to a new facility a mile up the Parks Highway.Clegg, who  is a member of the National Investment Council for Housing and the Assisted Living Federation of America [ALFA] ) says needs for Mat Su’s burgeoning senior population are pressing due to rapid population growth.“Your community right now is in dire need of this, this is not an issue, this is epic. If you look at the numbers of the growth of seniors in the Mat Su, you are one of five locations in the United States of America that has the fastest growing rate for seniors over the age of 65.”Clegg says the Mat Su is in danger of losing families because of the lack of facilities for seniors.  He says that the history of Mat Su is living in the lives of its senior citizens right now.Bonnie Quill, executive director of the Mat Su CVB is unavailable for comment.last_img read more

The Worlds Oldest Continuously Running Hotel

first_imgThe Nishiyama Onsen Keiunkan hot spring hotel in Japan dates from the year 705, and has been in continuous operation ever since. It claims to be the world’s oldest hotel, and one of the most ancient businesses still running. According to JapanVisitor, we need to delve into the Onsen hot spring culture first, to understand how the spa kept going in the mountainous heart of Japan’s main island. Remarkably, it still belongs to the same family after 52 generations.Onsen illustration from 1811. Photo by Chris 73 /CC BY-SA 3.0An Onsen is a thermal hot spring with water warmed by rocks heated by our planet’s fiery heart. Japan has literally thousands of these springs. In ancient times, warriors came to them to relax after battle, and thank their gods for their survival.Onsens therefore have a strong bond with Japanese history and religion. This may be one of the reasons why Nishiyama Onsen Keiunkan is still going after 1,300 years, but why this one particularly.Keiunkan in Nagahama, Photo by 663highland. CC BY-SA 3.0According to National Geographic, the world’s longest running hotel is on one of the ancient routes leading to Mount Fuji. The cone-shaped mountain is an icon of Japanese culture.The Shinto faith regards Mount Fuji as “one of the gods born when the earth was chaotic.” It became a place of pilgrimage for emperors, while ancient samurai used the slopes for battle training.Mt. Fuji, Japan.Wealthy Japanese noblemen flocked to the Nishiyama Onsen Keiunkan hot spring after Fujiwara Mahito began offering lodgings in 705 AD. Since then, it has hosted important guests including fierce samurai warriors and all-powerful emperors. The building has been knocked down and replaced many times but the location and the views remain the same.Keiunkan in Nagahama. Photo by 663highland CC By SA 3.0The family insists the founder Fujiwara Mahito was the son of a personal aide to Emperor Tenji in the seventh century. Emperor Tenji was a powerful warrior, but also a famous poet renowned for writing the first legal code.Perhaps his generosity towards his aid’s son was the springboard that enabled a young man to offer lodgings in such a remote place.6 Mysterious Islands From Around The WorldJapanese hot springs found favor with soldiers to ease aching muscles after military exercises and battles. They must have seemed miraculous, especially on cold winter nights when their only other source of warmth was a flickering campfire.Photo by Chris 73 / CC BY-SA 3.0The hotel website claims: “The hot spring has flowed freely without interruption since then, and is loved by many townsfolk, military commanders and cultured peoples as a secluded place deep in the mountains of the Kai region.” The first shōgun of the Tokugawa shogunate government, Tokugawa Ieyasu, visited it twice, where after the shogunate ruled Japan from 1600 to 1868.Nishiyama Onsen Keiunkan. Photo by 663highland CC By SA 3.0Such powerful alliances must have kept Nishiyama Onsen Keiunkan well provided with wealthy guests, as it continued to develop into the luxury hotel with distinctly modern prices standing on the site today.There are now four outdoor baths and two indoor ones, fed by four natural hot springs. The waters are still rich in sodium, calcium nitrate and chloride sourced from Earth’s fiery magma.Hōshi Ryokan, founded in 718, was previously thought to be the oldest operating hotel in the world.

Windows 10 Cloud hardware specs leak

first_imgWindows 10 Cloud hardware specs leak by Martin Brinkmann on April 22, 2017 in Windows – Last Update: July 05, 2017 – 9 commentsMicrosoft’s not-yet-officially unveiled — Windows 10 Cloud operating system is likely going to be unveiled on Microsoft’s May 2, 2017 event in New York City.While we will have to wait another week to find out whether that is indeed the case or not, Windows 10 Cloud hardware specs and performance targets were leaked online recently on Windows Central.Windows 10 Cloud, according to rumors, is Microsoft’s answer to Google’s Chromebook. Designed specifically to compete with Google in education, rumors have it that it will be a low-cost device that will run well on hardware that regular versions of Windows 10 don’t run that well on.Read: our first impression of Windows 10 CloudWindows 10 Cloud hardware specsMicrosoft’s performance targets for Chromebook competitor highlight what the company wants manufacturers to deliver. It wants its Windows 10 Cloud devices to compete on an eye to eye level with Chromebook’s battery life, and resume, and come close to the cold boot, first-sign in and consecutive sign-in times of devices powered by Google’s Chrome OS.As far as minimum hardware specs are concerned, they hold some surprises considering that Microsoft needs to compete with Google in performance and price:Quad-core (Celeron or better) CPU.4 Gigabytes of RAM.32 Gigabytes of storage for 32-bit, 64 Gigabytes for 64-bit.Battery larger than 40 WHr (WattHour).Fast eMMC or SSD storage.Optional pen and touch support.How does this compare to regular versions of Windows 10?Processor with at least 1 GHz1 Gigabyte of RAM for 32-bit, 2 Gigabytes for 64-bit.16 Gigabytes of hard drive space for 32-bit, 32 Gigabytes for 64-bit versions of Windows 10.A DirectX 9 or higher compatible graphics card with WDDM 1.0 drivers.A 800×600 display.And Google’s Chrome OS?Google does not list minimum requirements for its Chrome operating system.  If you check out the devices that are available currently, you will notice the following minimum specs:Intel Celeron processor or comparable.2 Gigabytes of RAM.16 Gigabyte of SSD storageIt is interesting to note that Microsoft’s Windows 10 Cloud operating system requires better hardware than Windows 10 in some areas. Most notable RAM and storage.On the processor side, Windows 10 will run on ARM processors eventually as well which should boost battery life and reduce the cost of devices.Windows 10 Cloud may look an awful lot like Windows RT on first glance. Microsoft launched Windows RT alongside Windows 8, but has not really mentioned the operating system since the launch of Windows RT 8.1. The company’s is still pushing out patches for Windows RT, but that is about it.One of the points of criticism in regards to Windows RT was that users could only use the apps that shipped with the operating system, Internet services and apps, and what was available in Windows Store at the time.This is similar to how Windows 10 Cloud operates, but with two notable differences.The Windows Store has matured a lot, and UWP applications deliver a better user experience on average. This includes options to run legacy Windows programs that were converted to run as Windows 10 apps. (hacks may circumvent that restriction)Windows 10 Cloud comes with an option to upgrade the operating system to a Windows 10 Home or Pro license.Closing WordsMicrosoft wants to establish a Chromebook competitor, especially in the US, a market where Google has been conquering the Education sector with its low-cost Chrome OS powered devices.It remains to be seen how well this is going to work out for Microsoft. While Windows 10 Cloud looks to be better in all aspects than Windows RT, price, battery life and functionality will determine whether the operating system will have a chance to break Google’s domination in the niche.Now You: Will Microsoft’s Windows 10 Cloud do better than Windows RT?SummaryArticle NameWindows 10 Cloud hardware specs leakDescriptionWindows 10 Cloud has not been unveiled officially yet by Microsoft, but the minimum hardware specs and performance targets of Microsoft’s Chrome OS competitor have leaked online already.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Indiegogo expands its efforts to help Chinese startups reach global consumers

first_imgWhile crowdfunding company Indiegogo has been running a pilot program in China for the past couple of years, it’s now building on those efforts with the launch of the Indiegogo China Global Fast-Track Program.CEO David Mandelbrot is in Shenzhen, China this week to announce the program, which is designed to help Chinese entrepreneurs reach a global audience. In an email, he told me:The China Pilot Program is officially out of pilot phase — today, we are officially launching the Indiegogo Global Fast Track. During the pilot phase, the team experimented with different ways to help service Chinese brands and manufacturers who were looking to launch products overseas. After helping companies raise over $100 million and launch over 3,000 China-based projects over two years time, the team has finalized its new suite of services.Those services include guidance around crowdfunding and marketing in the United States and other countries, access to a network of more than 65 service providers (including retailers and marketing firms, as well as Indiegogo’s manufacturing partner Arrow Electronics and shipping partner Ingram Micro) and Chinese-to-English consultation with bilingual staff.Even while in the pilot phase, Indiegogo has had some success stories in helping Chinese companies launch globally.

This is Europes least visited country but also one of its most

first_img Thursday, September 21, 2017 Travelweek Group << Previous PostNext Post >> This is Europe’s least visited country but also one of its most beautiful NEW YORK — Anyone who’s ever been to Europe during the peak summer months is familiar with long lineups and huge crowds. But there’s still one country that’s refreshingly still void of tourists and yet boasts spectacular medieval fortresses, gorgeous mountain views and delectable food: San Marino.According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization, this micro-state located in north-central Italy welcomed the fewest amount of tourists in 2016, with just 60,000. But this doesn’t mean the country isn’t worth visiting – on the contrary, with so few tourists and so many beautiful attractions, now is the best time to visit.Guaita, the First Tower of San MarinoCentral square of San MarinoKnown for its cliff-top castles, San Marino is the world’s fifth smallest independent country, measuring just 61 square kilometres. Within its borders, it’s home to such jaw-dropping sights as Guaita, an iconic 11th-century fortress perched atop Monte Titano (San Marino’s highest peak), De La Fratta, a historic tower featuring a small weapons museum, Palazzo Pubblico, where the changing of the guard takes place every day, and the imposing Basilica di San Marino, built in the early 19th century and home to the relics of St. Marinus.More news:  Apply now for AQSC’s agent cruise ratesThere are also several noteworthy museums for history buffs, like the Wax Museum, which contains 100 wax figures of historical character, and the Museum of Curiosities, where visitors can marvel over such oddities as 60-centimetre clogs and the world’s longest fingernails.So if your clients are looking to travel off the beaten path in Europe, be sure to tell them about San Marino. But tell them to go quickly, because chances are this ‘hidden’ gem won’t stay hidden for long.center_img Tags: Italy Share Posted bylast_img read more

LGS Specialty Sales reports strong Moroccan W M
