Le gouvernement rappelle aux parents de la province que la date limite pour fournir des commentaires sur l’élaboration des bulletins scolaires améliorés en langage clair est le lundi 30 septembre. Le ministère de l’Éducation et du Développement de la petite enfance apporte des changements aux bulletins scolaires pour faire en sorte que les parents soient des partenaires à part entière dans l’éducation de leurs enfants. « Les familles ont besoin de bien comprendre où leur enfant en est rendu dans son apprentissage et comment il peut mieux réussir, de dire Carole Olsen, sous-ministre de l’Éducation et du Développement de la petite enfance. Nous voulons que le plus grand nombre possible de parents nous aident à créer des bulletins scolaires faciles à lire et qui fournissent des renseignements utiles. » Jusqu’à maintenant, le ministère a reçu 108 réponses au sondage sur les bulletins scolaires. Les commentaires comportent notamment des idées concernant l’amélioration de la clarté et du contenu des commentaires des enseignants, les notes accordées aux élèves et la communication avec les parents. Les parents et les enseignants peuvent transmettre leurs idées, leurs suggestions et leurs commentaires par courriel à l’adresse ReportCard@gov.ns.ca ou par la poste à l’adresse suivante : Examen du bulletin scolaireC.P. 5782021, rue BrunswickHalifax (N.-É.)

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Twitter Facebook Login/Register With: The City of Toronto announced on Tuesday that it had reached an agreement with the Toronto Media Arts Cluster (TMAC), a coalition of local arts charities, that would allow the group to move into its long-contested space on Lisgar St. in the city’s west end.For TMAC, as good news goes, it’s a ‘yes, but:’ The terms of the agreement will require TMAC to satisfy a range of provisions and obligations to take permanent ownership of the space, which was built for them in the base of a condominium tower as part of a city cultural development program.Should TMAC fail to meet the provisions, it has agreed to vacate and give up all future legal claim on the space. Details of the agreement have not been disclosed, pending court approval. Advertisement Henry Faber, the group’s president, suggested that the deal could indeed prove to be too onerous for TMAC to meet, “but had we not agreed to these terms, we would have had zero chance of finally taking ownership,” he said. “But I’m hopeful, because we were able to do significantly more than anyone thought we could. This is where we’ve landed with the best opportunity to provide what the community asked for.” Advertisement
Gun groups worried about government’s ability to trace guns to owners Instructors in short supply as firearms license waiting list grows longer: SWF Government can’t access gun dealer record without warrant: Goodale Upcoming by-elections a test for fledgling PPC: Bernier The Saskatoon Wildlife Federation wants nothing to do with a proposed shooting contest between two People’s Party of Canada candidates, and says it won’t allow the event to take place at its new range east of the city.Announced this weekend, the “rifle range skill battle” was intended to determine whether Mark Friesen or Guto Penteado would represent Maxime Bernier’s party in a debate hosted by the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce.Friesen and Penteado were supposed to take part in the contest Tuesday afternoon, but SWF past president and fundraising chairman Robert Freberg said it won’t happen at the only large-bore range within an hour’s drive of the city.In an interview, Freberg said neither Friesen nor Penteado is currently an SWF member — Friesen’s membership lapsed in February — and the organization was not consulted on the proposed rifle match until early Tuesday morning.Moreover, Freberg said, the People’s Party’s plan to livestream the event on social media would contravene the SWF’s “absolute prohibition” on photography at the range, a policy intended to protect its members’ privacy.“This is not the way our federation wants to be seen by the public,” Freberg said, adding that while the SWF supports gun rights, it is non-partisan and must work with whatever political party forms government in October.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.Referring to a recent CBC News story in which Penteado described himself as a “redneck,” Freberg said that does not align with the SWF’s mandate, which includes bringing people together to celebrate hunting and fishing.That includes a major education effort, as well as partnerships with local Indigenous organizations, he said.Friesen and Penteado said in separate interviews that they are disappointed with the SWF’s decision, and were making arrangements to relocate the shooting contest to another unspecified rifle range near Saskatoon.Both candidates went on to question why the federation would shut down what they characterized as a private contest between two individuals unrelated to politics. “We didn’t make it political,” Penteado said, adding that it was an “internal PPC event.”The top of the advertisement for the event features the PPC logo. The bottom line reads “Watch the gunsmoke (sic) on Facebook Live streaming.”“I’m disappointed in their decision. It flies in the face of what we’re trying to do,” Friesen said of his pro-gun views before adding that he tried to renew his membership Tuesday afternoon and was told it was under review.Penteado said he does not want to be portrayed as a redneck, but chose to take it as a compliment when social media commentators began using the term to refer to him and Friesen, in an apparent attempt to offend.“Here in the west, we’re all good with hunting and responsible gun ownership. It’s part of our way of life,” he said.At a press conference outside the SWF range on Tuesday afternoon, Friesen and Penteado — whose campaign staff arrived in a camouflage-painted RV — said they plan to reschedule the event at a private home later that evening.They declined to say where or when the shooting match would be held, but promised it would be streamed on social media.Not every pro-gun activist agrees that the competition should have gone ahead at the SWF range.Canadian Coalition for Firearms Rights vice-president Tracey Wilson said Tuesday on social media that the event was a “stupid publicity stunt” and the best candidate should attend the debate.—With StarPhoenix files from Zak Vesceraamacpherson@postmedia.comtwitter.com/macphersonaRelated
A much decorated Burundian humanitarian worker will receive the top award of the United Nations refugee agency next month for her work caring for 10,000 children displaced by civil wars in her home country and in neighbouring countries and for recently repatriated Burundians.The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said Marguerite Barankitse, a Burundian humanitarian worker and founder of the non-governmental organization Maison Shalom (House of Peace), was to be honoured “for her tireless efforts” as the winner of this year’s Nansen Refugee Award. The prize is given annually to individuals or organizations that have distinguished themselves in work on behalf of refugees.She will get the award, which is named for the first international refugee official, Polar explorer Fridtjof Nansen of Norway, and which includes a $100,000 grant for a refugee-related project of her choice, at a ceremony on 22 June in Brussels, Belgium.During the massacre of Tutsis and moderate Hutus in Burundi in 1994, she saved many orphaned children in Ruyigi, an eastern town, UNHCR said.“At the beginning there were 25 children whose parents had been killed, then after one year there were 100, then 500 and now it’s more than 10,000. So I began to look for land, and I thought, ‘Why don’t I use my parents’ land?”” the former teacher in Ruyigi, her hometown, recalled.She called the new institution Maison Shalom and it provides a home where orphans and children separated from their families, including child soldiers, can grow up in new “families” providing security, education and love. Ms. Barankitse and her team now run four “children’s villages” around the country, as well as a centre in the capital Bujumbura.The children – and returning female-headed families – are taught the principles of health and hygiene, especially HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, how to manage a household and tend to livestock, how to run income-generating projects and how to benefit from apprenticeships. In Ruyigi, they also manage a cinema, a public swimming pool, a restaurant, a hairdressing salon and a guesthouse.Previous recipients of the award, created in 1954, include the late US First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, the NGO Médecins sans Frontières, the Russian Federation’s Memorial Human Rights Centre, landmine victims’ Handicap International, the UN Volunteers (UNV), King Juan Carlos of Spain, Queen Juliana of the Netherlands and the late President Julius Nyerere of Tanzania.
The Guinea Alumina Corporation (GAC) bauxite mine project in the Boké region of Guinea, Africa recently achieved a major construction milestone when the project team safely set the railcar dumper facility’s 450 t rotating assembly into its final location. Fluor is providing engineering and program management services on the project, which encompasses a 12 million-tonne-per-year bauxite mine, a dedicated export terminal in Port Kamsar and rail and other infrastructure upgrades.The car dumper facility is critical to the mine’s logistics and operations. Bauxite is transported from the mine to the Port Kamsar site by rail, where it is then shipped to customers. At the port, the car dumper facility unloads bauxite from the rail wagons, with the rotating assembly playing a critical part. It took three days, multiple self-propelled modular transporters and two 750 t cranes to complete the milestone. The final lift required special preparations in order to hoist the 450 t assembly over the car dumper facility’s walls and into its final location. A 200-person team, representing 14 different countries and contractors, completed the lift.“This milestone was achieved due to the collective efforts between the GAC and Fluor project teams,” said Troy Gilson, Fluor’s Project Director. “It demonstrates the importance of having a strong relationship built around teamwork and trust. This critical milestone was executed safely after six months of detailed planning with a team focused and committed to working Safer Together.” The project has worked more than 8 million consecutive hours without a lost-time incident. The project is expected to complete in 2019.
The Dragon Quest name may be recognized around the world, but it’s Japan where the series both originates from and counts most of its fans. So it wasn’t that surprising to discover the first eight Dragon Quest games are being ported to mobile platforms. Specifically, Android and iOS devices will be able to play them all, at least in Japan.What is surprising, and confirms just how popular Dragon Quest is in Japan, is the fact the series is set to get its very own branded smartphone.The SH-01F smartphone is being manufactured by Sharp and is a variant of the Aquos Phone Zeta. It will include a 5-inch 1080 x 1920 resolution touchscreen display, a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon processors, 3,000mAh battery, and a 15.9 megapixel camera on the back (2.1 megapixel camera on the front). It will run Android 4.2 and is apparently waterproof, meeting the IPX5 standard.The Dragon Quest branding can be seen on the back of the device, with the silver color called Metal Slime and several characters being printed across it alongside the Square Enix logo. A free copy of Dragon Quest VIII will come preinstalled on the device, and I’m sure there’s going to be some graphical modifications on the phone to enhance the branding further.There’s no details on price or availability beyond a December launch, but this is definitely going to be an expensive phone to get your hands on. NTT DoCoMo is only going to offer 30,000 of them, so you can imagine a few auctions occurring soon after launch.As for Dragon Quest VIII, you may be surprised to find Square Enix has decided the mobile version will be played in portrait mode on devices. You can see it in action in the video below:This actually makes sense on a phone because a lot of time is spent in combat in the game, which therefore requires regular screen tapping. By making it a portrait game, it’s going to be much easier to do that holding the phone in one hand, say, when you’re commuting to work.
“If I had a time machine, I’d visit Marilyn Monroe in her prime or drop in on Galileo as he turned his telescope to the heavens.” “Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.” Stephen Hawking Commemorated With Black Hole-Inspired CoinYou Could Own Stephen Hawking’s Thesis, Wheelchair Stay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. “For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination. We learned to talk and we learned to listen. Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible. Mankind’s greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking. It doesn’t have to be like this. Our greatest hopes could become a reality in the future. With the technology at our disposal, the possibilities are unbounded. All we need to do is make sure we keep talking.” Remembering Stephen Hawking, a renowned physicist and ambassador of science. His theories unlocked a universe of possibilities that we & the world are exploring.

There is no such thing as a standard or run-of-the-mill human being, but we share the same human spirit.” His passing has left an intellectual vacuum in his wake. But it’s not empty. Think of it as a kind of vacuum energy permeating the fabric of spacetime that defies measure.

It’s almost as if Letty Stegall is there, back home in the United States, beside her daughter to prod her awake for school. When her husband goes to the grocery store, she fusses over the list with him. At the bar she helped run, she still gives regulars a warm welcome, and around the dinner table at night, she beams when she sees what her family managed to cook.But Stegall’s face only appears on a screen, and her words come in unreliable cell connections and a barrage of texts. Lives once lived together are divided by some 1,600 miles. A woman who married an American and gave birth to an American and who came to think of herself as American, too, is now deported to her native Mexico.”I wish I was there. That’s all that I want,” she says of her life in Kansas City, Missouri. “I want my family back.”As the United States takes a harder line on immigration, thousands who called the country home are being forced to go. Often, they leave behind spouses and children with American citizenship and must figure out how to go on with families fractured apart. Studies have found an estimated 8 million to 9 million Americans – the majority of them children – live with at least one relative who is in the country illegally, and so each action to deport an immigrant is just as likely to entangle a citizen or legal US resident.Stegall’s deportation means she could be banned from the US for a decade. She prays paperwork seeking to validate her return through her marriage could wind through the system within two years, but there is no guarantee.For now, she is a stranger in the vaguely familiar land she left as a 21-year-old in 1999, her phone and laptop the only windows to a life that’s no longer hers. When her 17-year-old daughter, Jennifer Tadeo-Uscanga, arrives home from school, Stegall is there on FaceTime to greet her. She watches streaming feeds from 16 cameras at the bar she manages remotely. She gives Steve Stegall, her husband of six years, a goodnight kiss by pressing her lips to her cellphone screen.The four-dimensional, analog world she loved has been flattened and digitized. She recognizes how odd it all may seem, but she wonders what other choice she has. Should she pull Jennifer from the only country she’s ever known, where her dreams of college and career seem so achievable? Should she ask Steve – born and bred in Kansas City – to abandon their business and home and come to a place where he can’t speak the language and his safety might be jeopardized by drug cartels?The questions hang in the thick summer air.”I lost everything,” she says. “It’s just me.”Stegall walks down streets of modest, brightly painted homes, past a tree dangling with yellow guavas and beside a butcher shop where red sausages are strung up like Christmas garland. Palms splash against clear blue skies, and swaths of purple flowers hold court below.Beauty can be found everywhere in Boca del Río, a small city along the Gulf of Mexico, but it’s hard for Stegall to see. Even as she rounds the bend and a striking panorama of blue sea appears before her, it does little to lift her. She splashes the salt water on her face and rubs it on her arms. This would be a nice vacation, she says, but it’s all a cheap copy of the life she had a few months ago.Stegall grew up two hours from here in Cosamaloapan, a flat, crop-dotted part of Veracruz, the state that hugs a broad chunk of Mexico’s eastern coast. Her parents’ furniture business afforded a comfortable existence, but drawn by the stories of a cousin who settled in Overland Park, Kansas, Stegall was convinced there was greater opportunity for her in the US. She paid a smuggler $3,000 to lead her across the Rio Grande.She was caught and returned to Mexico but crossed successfully a day later. When she made it to the Kansas City area, she found a job busing tables, working her way up through a string of restaurants to become a server and bartender and manager.She got married and had Jennifer, but later divorced. Then she fell in love with Steve, who came to see Jennifer as his own. Stegall mastered the language and watched her paychecks grow. She and Steve bought a home, and soon Stegall became the heart of The Blue Line , the bar they ran together. When the Olympics aired, she’d drape herself in red, white and blue, and when the national anthem sounded, she’d nudge her husband to remove his hat as she stood solemnly, goose bumps covering her body.All the while, her parents told of kidnappings and decapitations back in Cosamaloapan, of the cartel taking over and the family being forced out. They deserted their home and business, and fled for Boca del Río. She thanked God she had escaped. She didn’t think she’d ever return.In Kansas City, the fear of being caught that Stegall had when she first arrived receded with each passing year. Donald Trump’s campaign and his tough rhetoric on illegal immigration piqued her attention and stirred a little worry, but he talked about catching rapists and murderers and gang members, and that wasn’t her. She carried her Social Security card, obtained through her marriage, work permit and driver’s license everywhere just in case.She had just started backing out of the driveway to head to the gym on the morning of 26 February when three cars careened in. Agents hopped out, opened her door and told her she was under arrest. She urged them to look at her paperwork and thought it was all a mistake.”I’m married to an American citizen,” she pleaded. “I have a citizen daughter.”Six years earlier, police had pulled her over a few blocks from her house and charged her with misdemeanor drunken driving. The arrest made authorities aware that she was in the US illegally. Stegall spent a month in jail and her case went into the immigration system.She cries as she recounts the incident, mindful she might not be in this situation had she not gotten behind the wheel. She sees that she is paying the price for her mistake but is also convinced that her deportation was unfair.She wonders why the government’s crackdown efforts seem to focus on her and other low-level criminals instead of the “bad hombres” that Trump said he’d banish. Don’t her daughter and husband have a right to keep their family intact? Don’t her years of paying taxes, of learning English, of living an otherwise pristine life count for anything?”They didn’t take out the people who are dangerous,” says Stegall, who is 41. “The murderers are still there. The gangsters are still there. The rapists are still there.”While US Immigration and Customs Enforcement often touts the criminal convictions of those rounded up, arrests of migrants with convictions for offenses such as driving under the influence (59,985 in fiscal year 2017) outnumber those of immigrants previously convicted for homicide, sexual assault or kidnapping. (Those collectively totaled 6,553 in 2017.) Meantime, arrests of immigrants without criminal convictions have increased significantly since Trump took office.Officially, Stegall’s deportation process began under president Barack Obama. He became known as the “deporter in chief” for presiding over so many removals but changed tactics in the final two years of his presidency, when ICE was directed to exercise discretion to defer action on certain migrants with standing removal orders, including those with citizen children and living in the US prior to 2010.A DUI arrest was generally seen as “a midlevel priority,” says Randy Capps, an expert on deportation at the Migration Policy Institute , and people like Stegall often were allowed to stay in the latter part of Obama’s presidency if they had regular check-ins with ICE, paid processing fees, were fingerprinted and stayed out of trouble.An executive order issued by Trump changed that, effectively declaring any immigrant without legal status subject to arrest. Even the path once seen as simplest to legal status – a legitimate marriage to a citizen – no longer is always enough to stave off deportation.Stegall didn’t apply for a green card after getting married because her former attorney told her she had little to worry about with a citizen husband and daughter and because, under US law, she likely would have had to return to Mexico and wait out the process there.Four days after her February arrest, Stegall won a stay of deportation in court pending a hearing. But ICE already had her shackled aboard a flight to Brownsville, Texas, where she was directed to cross by foot back into Mexico. Her family, relieved by the victory in court, didn’t even know she was gone.”The new normal, really, is rush and push people out of the country, regardless of what’s going on,” says Stegall’s current attorney, Rekha Sharma-Crawford.In a split-level house on a neat, tree-shadowed street in Kansas City, every wall, table and shelf is covered with photos, but one of the smiling faces is absent. In that absence, plants wilted and died, and clothes came out of the wash tinged in blue. Dinnertime, once an ever-changing parade of feasts that charmed the palates of Steve and Jennifer, has become a spartan affair of the easily achievable. Family celebrations now typically include tears.”She’s not dead,” Jennifer, a native of the Kansas City area, says of her mother. “But she’s not here.”Stegall’s husband is depressed and has taken to clutching a pink teddy bear in bed, when he’s not hustling to maintain their business. Stegall’s in-laws, who built lives in Kansas City like their parents before them, have put off retiring to their lake house because they’re needed at the bar to fill in for the woman they consider a daughter.Most of all, though, a teen who thinks of her mom as her best friend has been left without her confidante.When Jennifer’s birthday came, just after Stegall was deported, the teen got her favorite dish of fettuccine alfredo at Olive Garden and the Versace perfume she wanted as a present. Her mom appeared on FaceTime to sing “Happy Birthday,” but it wasn’t enough to soothe the sadness.As prom approached, she wished her mom was around to shop with, and on the big night, when she needed a last-minute hem, there was no one to come to the rescue.Each momentous occasion that awaits Jennifer – senior year, Christmas, graduation, college – is tainted because the person closest to her won’t be there to share in them.”My God,” Jennifer wrote to the immigration judge handling her mother’s case, “my own country has been the one that has caused me pain.”Before Stegall’s deportation, her lawyer argued Jennifer was suffering depression and anxiety, wrought with fear her mother would be taken from her. Steve counts the moment he had to tell Jennifer that ICE had picked up her mother as the worst of his life. They bawled as the teen buried her face in her stepfather’s shoulder.”We were best friends,” he says. “When somebody gets yanked away from you one day, it’s just a huge hole in your life. You don’t have her to come home to … just seeing her around the house, hearing her laughing, you know? Watching her smile.”At The Blue Line, where the ceiling is hammered tin and the walls are covered in hockey skates, jerseys and sticks, the bartender this night is wearing a white T-shirt that says “#BringLettyHome” and a flag-festooned box at the end of the bar is labeled “Letters for Letty.””Life here is incomplete without you,” reads one. “A couple tacos and a few drinks at happy hour isn’t the same without your smile,” says another. “You don’t know me but I was sick when I heard your story,” goes a third.Jennifer Rice, a waitress who has taken over some supervisory duties, struggles to capture all that Stegall’s absence means. Customers ask about her daily. Her long list of responsibilities has shifted. The friend so many came to count on has been taken away.”All of a sudden, she’s gone,” Rice says. “You just can’t put it into words.”A moment later, she can’t help herself, and she’s dialing Stegall. “I miss you and when I talk about you, I get upset. It makes me emotional,” Rice says as she begins to cry. “I love you so much.” Back in Mexico, Stegall takes her glasses off to wipe tears away.Many in the bar this night, including Steve’s parents, gave their vote to Trump. They liked his promise to bring jobs back to the US and the vow to make trade with China fairer. And they supported him when he said criminal immigrants would be deported. They just didn’t consider Stegall one, even if she came to the country illegally.”I’ve always been proud to be an American,” says Shirley Stegall, Steve’s mom. “But now I’m ashamed.”Jerry Rosetti, sipping scotch and water near the box of letters to Stegall, doesn’t think she should have been targeted and calls the situation “a raw deal.” But he still supports the president and still thinks illegal immigration is wrong.”I would trade places with her in a minute,” he says. “She shouldn’t be in Mexico. She should be right here, right now.”The dichotomy angers Steve. When someone balances compassion for his wife with support for Trump, he’s confounded.”He’s destroying American lives,” Steve says of the president. “How can you do this? How can you do this to your own American people?”Time plays funny tricks. Stegall remembers those early days in Kansas City, when the winter cold seemed unbearable, the numbers on thermometers and price tags so foreign, the food off-putting. She struggled to communicate, repeatedly chided with a similar refrain: “This is America. Speak English.”Now she misses the seasonal shifts, it’s Celsius and pesos she can’t seem to grasp, it’s the American adaptations of Mexican food that she craves – and those American souls she wants to surround herself with. She sometimes finds herself struggling for a word or slipping into a Spanglish hybrid.”Tía, estás en Mexico,” a nephew interjects. “Auntie, you’re in Mexico.”She returns to the house in Boca del Río, the one she shares with eight others, after her afternoon routine. And as night draws closer, the computer before her glows. She’s watching the bar again, spotting friends, questioning why a customer hasn’t gotten his food, noting when a light indicates a phone call is coming in but not being answered.”I wish I could go inside my laptop,” she says.Seeing her former life unfold on a screen keeps her busy and gives her back a version of what was taken away. And so the monotonous mass of moments that form a daily routine continue as if she never left.”An hour is a month. A month is a year,” she says.Midnight nears and she has crawled into bed in a small room she took from her nephew, with walls of cement and a big mirror rimmed with family photographs. She’s lying down, wearing a black Coors Light tee and leopard-print pajama pants, when her daughter’s FaceTime call comes in.They talk about dinner and share gossip about an acquaintance’s impending marriage. They end as they always do, with a string of prayers and “I love yous.”She and Steve trade texts about whether to watch Netflix together but apart, before deciding they’re too tired for a show. They go through the banality of their days, joke about losing weight and recount his visit to a psychiatrist before holding their lips to the screen to say goodnight.She steals a last look at the bar’s cameras, where the crowd is thinning. She’s too tired to keep watching, so she closes the screen and slips off to sleep.In her dreams this night, she’s back in her house in Kansas City, with her soaring cathedral ceilings and the stainless steel refrigerator covered in magnets. Her dogs, Blue and Bella, are just back from doggy day care, and one of Blue’s back legs is injured. Jennifer is angry, having told her mother not to send the dogs there. Her husband is bickering with her over something she won’t be able to remember the next day.For all the seeming strife of it, when she awakens and recalls it, she is happy. It was a good dream. She was back home.
Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested three persons for their alleged involvement with a smuggling syndicate along with 800,000 yaba pills from the city’s Sadarghat area early Tuesday.Tipped off, a team of RAB-1 conducted a drive in the area and arrested them along with the yaba tablets around 5:30am, said assistant superintendent of police Kamruzzaman of RAB-1.
Netflix turned in much stronger results for the third quarter of 2018 than anticipated, sending the streaming powerhouse’s stock climbing in after-hours trading.During Q3, Netflix netted 1.09 million new streaming subs in the U.S. and 5.87 million internationally. That’s compared with the company’s forecast of 650,000 domestic net adds and 4.35 million overseas for the September quarter — a more conservative outlook than analysts’ previous estimates.The better-than-expected Q3 results come after Netflix widely missed second-quarter expectations for subscriber growth, which CEO Reed Hastings chalked up to periodic “lumpiness” in the business.Netflix said the total net additions for the quarter of 7.0 million streaming subs — a new Q3 record for Netflix — were the result of greater-than-expected customer acquisition globally, “with strong growth broadly across all our markets including Asia,” the company said in its quarterly investor letter. Netflix ended the quarter with 137.1 million streaming members worldwide (58.4 million in the U.S.; 78.6 million internationally). In a prerecorded interview with Netflix execs posted after the earnings announcement, chief content officer Ted Sarandos said Netflix-owned originals are more “efficient” than licensed content (i.e., they get more viewing per dollar spent). Plus, he said, “We don’t have to go through the gun-to-your-head renegotiation every couple years for them.”The company in its investor letter cited the European Union’s new rules requiring streaming services to allocate at least 30% of their catalogs to European-based productions and that some countries will require services like Netflix to invest a portion of local revenue into European works. “We anticipate being able to meet these requirements by evolving our content offering,” Netflix said in the shareholder letter.That said, Netflix expressed its opposition to the EU move, saying that “quotas, regardless of market size, can negatively impact both the customer experience and creativity. We believe a more effective way for a country to support strong local content is to directly incentivize local content creators, independent of distribution channel.”For Q4, Netflix is forecasting paid net additions of 7.6 million — and total net additions of 9.4 million — up 15% and 13%, respectively, from the year-earlier period.In a move to help it provide more accurate subscriber-trend guidance, Netflix said, starting with its Q4 2018 report (to be released in January 2019) it will provide guidance only for paid memberships; then, in 2020, it will stop reporting on end-of-quarter free trial counts. “Because growth in paid memberships is more steady, our forecast for paid net adds has been historically more accurate than our total net adds forecast,” Netflix said. For example, in Q2 of this year, paid net adds forecast was off by 11% compared with a 17% variance for total net adds forecast.In addition, for the fourth quarter of 2018, Netflix said it expects to reclassify “certain personnel costs” from G&A (general and administrative) to content and marketing, and from technology & development to “other cost of revenues.” The changes will be to reflect “the ongoing evolution of our business to include self-production of content,” Netflix said, noting that the reclassification would have no impact on total operating expenses, operating profit or operating margin and is intended to provide a clearer picture of marketing and content expenses. The company reported Q3 revenue of $4.0 billion, up 36% year over year, and earnings of 89 cents per share that beat analyst expectations. Wall Street’s Q3 consensus estimates for Netflix had pegged EPS at 68 cents on revenue of $4.0 billion.Netflix shares soared as much as 14% in after-hours trading Tuesday. Ahead of the earnings report, the stock closed up 4% for the day, to $346.40 per share.The company, which is expected to spend some $13 billion on content on a gross basis in 2018, continues to operate at negative free cash flow. Netflix’s free cash flow in Q3 was -$859 million (compared with -$465 million in the year-earlier quarter). For the full year, the company expects free cash flow will be closer to -$3 billion than to -$4 billion, and that negative free cash flow in 2019 will be roughly flat with this year.“We recognize we are making huge cash investments in content, and we want to assure our investors that we have the same high confidence in the underlying economics as our cash investments in the past,” Netflix said in its letter to shareholders. “These investments we see as very likely to help us to keep our revenue and operating profits growing for a very long time ahead.”On the originals front, Netflix touted the performance of its “Summer of Love” romantic-comedy films. More than 80 million of its subscribers — representing at least 58% of its 137.1 million total worldwide streaming users as of the end of September — watched one of its “Summer of Love” rom-coms over the past few months, and the company said “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” was one of its most-viewed original films to date.Netflix also announced a December launch for awards-contender “Roma” from Alfonso Cuarón, a ’70s-set drama chronicling a year in the life of a middle-class family in Mexico City, with a simultaneous day-and-date release on Netflix and on over 100 screens worldwide. It’s doing the same thing with “22 July,” from Oscar-nominated director Paul Greengrass.
Journal information: Journal of the Royal Society Interface Large moths need to hear better Bats, as most are aware, make their way through the air using echolocation—they emit sounds and listen as the sounds are bounced back to them after hitting something. This ability not only helps them avoid running into things in dark, but it’s the means by which they identify and catch prey. In this new effort, the researchers found that changes in air temperature of just a few degrees could have a profound impact on the echolocation abilities of bats around the world.Attenuation—the tendency of sound to lose volume and clarity as it moves through the air (or other materials) is impacted by a variety of factors, such as humidity, wind and of course heat—low frequency sounds are less impacted than are high frequency sounds. This means that bats that live in temperate climates such as North America or Europe (who use high frequency chirps) are likely to face more challenges than low frequency chirping bats living in the tropics, as global temperature rise.Of course nothing in nature is as simple as that, other factors have an impact on survival of species as well, and global warming is almost certain to cause environmental impacts that no one foresaw. But, what is clear from this new study is that some bats are likely to be winners, and some losers, because of where they live. Those that live in temperate climates but who use low frequencies, for example, might find the hunting getting easier. Others who are slow to adapt, on the other hand, may find the added stress of having to chirp louder, lower or more often, too much to bare leaving them with too little energy to mate.An associated finding with this study is that it highlights the fact that the more the impact of global warming is studied, the more we discover just how far and wide the impact will be felt, both on a global scale, and within simple communities, such as those occupied by bats.

Here, we present a functional link between rising temperature and the prey detection ability of echolocating bats. The maximum distance for echo-based prey detection is physically determined by sound attenuation. Attenuation is more pronounced for high-frequency sound, such as echolocation, and is a nonlinear function of both call frequency and ambient temperature. Hence, the prey detection ability, and thus possibly the foraging efficiency, of echolocating bats and susceptible to rising temperatures through climate change. Using present-day climate data and projected temperature rises, we modelled this effect for the entire range of bat call frequencies and climate zones around the globe. We show that depending on call frequency, the prey detection volume of bats will either decrease or increase: species calling above a crossover frequency will lose and species emitting lower frequencies will gain prey detection volume, with crossover frequency and magnitude depending on the local climatic conditions. Within local species assemblages, this may cause a change in community composition. Global warming can thus directly affect the prey detection ability of individual bats and indirectly their interspecific interactions with competitors and prey. This document is subject to copyright.

On Arxiv: https://arxiv.org/abs/1610.02451ABSTRACTWe demonstrate matter-wave interference in a warm vapor of rubidium atoms. Established approaches to light-pulse atom interferometry rely on laser cooling to concentrate a large ensemble of atoms into a velocity class resonant with the atom optical light pulse. In our experiment, we show that clear interference signals may be obtained without laser cooling. This effect relies on the Doppler selectivity of the atom interferometer resonance. This interferometer may be configured to measure accelerations, and we demonstrate that multiple interferometers may be operated simultaneously by addressing multiple velocity classes. © 2017 Phys.org (Phys.org)—A team of researchers at Sandia Labs in the U.S. has developed a type of atom interferometer that does not require super-cooled temperatures. In their paper published the journal Physical Review Letters, the group describes the approach they used to overcome the main hurdles to warm interferometry and the ways in which their new device can be used. Carlos Garrido Alzar with Sorbonne Université offers a commentary piece on the work done by team in the same journal issue and offers a descriptive analogy of the device they created.

Credit: arXiv:1610.02451 [physics.atom-ph] There are two kinds of interferometers—optical and atom. Both are precise measuring devices that operate by measuring interference fringes that are produced when a beam is cut in half and both halves are allowed to proceed for a short distance before being recombined—thus recording the information generated due to interference, such as from gravity. To date, atom interferometers have required very cold temperatures to operate—the cold slows the range of velocities of a collection of atoms to increase the signal that occurs at the machines’ output. It also helps to keep the atoms under study close to one another, which improves precision. Atom interferometers do their measuring by using laser beams to split the beam under study. In this new effort, the researchers have come up with a new kind of atom interferometer that works without the need for very cold temperatures.As the researchers note, the development of the new interferometer required overcoming two main obstacles—the first was to greatly reduce spin flipping due to collisions with the chamber walls. The team got around this by developing a special coating for the chamber that dramatically reduces such flipping. The second problem involved developing a way to align the weak laser that detects interference fringes and the strong laser used as the interferometer. They solved this problem by using two counter-propagating probe beams to measure signal differences. The result was an atom interferometer that was not as sensitive as those that require extreme cold, but one that can acquire data faster, can be ported more easily, and is able to measure a wider range of accelerations.Garrido Alzar describes the difference between the cold and warm approach as the difference between a device that operates much like as laser versus one that works using light from a regular white light bulb.

It’s Valentine’s day and some protectors of the Indian culture will supposedly be back in action. Because here, Valentine’s is not just about love, longing, and celebration; it’s also the time to face the wrath of the anti-Valentine’s Day brigade.This year, millennials make it a point to voice their opinions on this forced moral policing.Shatrupa Ganguly, a journalism student from Delhi says, “I think twice before going out even with my male friends on valentine’s day. Despite being an independent woman, there is a constant fear of being strangled by a group of hooligans on grounds of morality. Living in the largest democratic nation in the world has its own perils.” Also Read – Add new books to your shelf2017 witnessed a case in Kerala where a man was attacked, filmed and mocked on social media by culture vigilantes. The severe crime that he committed was that of hanging around with a female friend on Valentine’s day. Later, the guy committed suicide because of humiliation. Similar cases have been reported in Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, and Karnataka., where young couples were forcibly married, and publically thrashed after blackening their face and shaving off their heads. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveSharing one such personal experience, Soyeb Allam, a postgraduate student of IIT stated, “It was in class 9th that we went for an excursion tour to a nearby science park on Valentine’s day. It was the first time I experienced the sight of an unruly mob moral policing the young couples visiting the park just like us (we never observed any obscenity or intimacy amongst the couples except a few holding hands). Some even had a hard time explaining that they were siblings until their parents confirmed on call or showed up in some time. It obviously instilled a sense of fear inside our teenage minds for those aggressive men.” “Years past that incident, every successive year I see news flooded with such mishappenings on Valentine’s day. What I still don’t understand is, how sweeping away all the love (just the unmarried ones) from the streets, parks, and cafés on one single day will leave us with a more cultured India, where love between a male and female can only happen to occur if you tie knots; else it becomes a western induced illegal salacious affair,” he further said. Zeeshan Kaskar, another student who is from JMI revealed a similar problem faced by him while he was sitting with a female friend in his hometown. According to him, “the problem is not just pertinent to metropolitan cities, it’s there throughout the country.” A student from Aligarh Muslim University anonymously expressed his opinion on the issue. “The fuss created by anti-Romeo squads in Uttar Pradesh last year, has made star-crossed lovers run for cover.”A law student from UP, however, expressed contentment by questioning the preachers of morality: “If a girl has been raped, nothing happens, but if a girl is voluntarily roaming with someone, some groups ‘freak out’. I believe they are assuming some authoritative power, which even the Constitution doesn’t assign them,” he further added.What’s more shocking is when an elite educational institute supports and promotes such a regressive ideology. At present, it is Lucknow university making headlines for issuing an advisory, telling students not come to the campus on Valentine’s day.Condemning any such activity, Mohammad Anas, a postgraduate student studying literature feels that “love cannot be chained at any cost, and hence, moral policing will only add more poison to polluted air of the present day. People are against love since the very beginning of the human existence but love manages to flourish in every time.”Indeed that gives out a positive vibe amidst all the negativity prevailing in the ambience these days. Akshay, a young man working as a PRO gives a blunt suggestion at the end note. “Instead of stopping something happening with the consent of both the ends, try focusing upon hunting down the harassers and molesters this year. Popularity can be gained through good things as well,” he said.

Firefox 52: how to keep on using plugins by Martin Brinkmann on February 03, 2017 in Firefox – 50 commentsFirefox 52 will be the first release version of the Mozilla Firefox web browser that will ship without support for NPAPI plugins.The only exception to the rule is that Firefox 52 will support Adobe Flash. All other plugins, Silverlight, Java, and all the others, won’t be supported anymore in the Firefox version.While plugin use is on the decline, scenarios exist where plugins are still required to use sites or services on the Internet.Firefox is the last major browser for the desktop that ends support for plugins. Google ended support for NPAPI plugins in Chrome 45 for instance which it released on September 1, 2015.Mozilla announced the end of support for NPAPI in 2015 for the end of 2016, but postponed the deadline to Firefox 52.Firefox 52: how to keep on using pluginsFirefox users who require these plugins may already have a plan in place to make sure that they can access sites and services that require plugins after the Firefox 52 release.Some Firefox users may be inclined to block updates of Firefox 51.x to avoid being upgraded to Firefox 52 or later. This is not really advised though, as it means that security updates won’t become available for that version of Firefox anymore. The risk of successful attacks increases because of this.Provided that you want to stay with Firefox, the best course of action at the time is to switch from Firefox Stable to Firefox ESR before the update to Firefox 52.Firefox 52.0 ESR will be released alongside Firefox 52.0. This is good news for anyone requiring plugins, as Firefox 52.0 ESR will continue to support plugins whereas Firefox 52.0 won’t.A full Extended Support Release cycle lasts seven full releases. This means that you will be able to use plugins in Firefox ESR until March 2018.Another option that you have is to install a Firefox ESR release next to Firefox Stable, and use it exclusively for sites and services that require plugins.How to move from Firefox Stable to ESRMike Kaply published a guide recently that explains how to switch the update channel from Firefox Stable to Firefox ESR.Step 1: Update channel-prefs.jsFirst thing you do is update the file channel-prefs.js. You find the file in the Firefox installation directory on your system.The default installation directories are32-bit Firefox Windows — C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\64-bit Firefox Windows — C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\Linux — /usr/lib/firefox-versionMac Os X — /Applications/Firefox.appYou find the file under defaults\prefs\, e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\prefs\channel-prefs.jsOpen the file in a plain text editor, and replace the linepref(“app.update.channel”, “release”);withpref(“app.update.channel”, “esr”);Step 2: Modify update-settings.iniThe second file that you need to modify is update-settings.ini. It is located in the root folder of the Firefox installation, e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox.Change the lineACCEPTED_MAR_CHANNEL_IDS=firefox-mozilla-releasetoACCEPTED_MAR_CHANNEL_IDS=firefox-mozilla-esrand save the file.Closing WordsMike notes that you should make the change as close to the release of Firefox 52 ESR as possible. The release is on March 7, 2017.Another option that you have is to install Firefox ESR directly on your system, and start using it. The new installation will pick up the profile that you used up until now.Please note though that Firefox 45.x ESR may not support certain features yet that Mozilla implemented in Firefox 46 to 51. Some add-ons or features may not be yet available because of the nature of ESR releases.Now You: Are you still using plugins?SummaryArticle NameFirefox 52: how to keep on using pluginsDescriptionFirefox 52 will be the first release version of the Mozilla Firefox web browser that will ship without support for NPAPI plugins.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement
