UNs Iraq envoy warns against danger of further conflicts in regionUNs Iraq envoy warns against danger of further conflicts in region

15 March 2007The senior United Nations envoy to Iraq today pledged the world body’s continued support for the war-torn country, especially through dialogue with its neighbours, while warning of the danger that would be posed by any additional conflicts in the already volatile region. “The United Nations is determined to encourage the neighbouring States to develop a sustained and constructive dialogue to minimize the prospect of Iraq’s tragedy being exacerbated by the wider problems of the region,” Ashraf Qazi told the Security Council in an open meeting that saw the participation of over a dozen speakers.“This needs to be encouraged by the wider international community,” he added. “All concerned should do their utmost to ensure that further conflict in the region is avoided lest this sets up a dynamic that spirals out of control.”Mr. Qazi, who has been in talks with leaders across the region, said he had been “repeatedly struck” by calls from them and Iraqi officials for greater UN involvement. “The Government and people of Iraq deserve the best the UN can offer in terms of facilitating reconciliation, as well as refugee, human rights and humanitarian protection processes,” he said.Reporting on recent developments, the envoy said the new security plan for Baghdad had produced mixed results; the number of violent incidents and unidentified tortured bodies had decreased, but “there is a widespread belief that the problems posed by militias are in temporary abeyance” while mass casualty attacks continue.Mr. Qazi noted that re-establishing security requires political progress, and called for the Government “to accord the highest priority to bringing about genuine political reconciliation among the diverse peoples of Iraq without which no security, political or economic process will bring lasting stability to the country.”Looking to the meeting scheduled for tomorrow in New York on the International Compact for Iraq (ICI), a five-year plan for the country’s advancement, Mr. Qazi voiced hope that participants would “agree on tangible steps that would result in the official launch of the initiative, thereby setting in motion a national, regional and international process to assist the Government of Iraq in fulfilling its obligations to its people.” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, speaking to reporters earlier today, also said the meeting should spur progress. “By holding this Compact tomorrow morning, we hope that this will give, first of all, a substantially and politically important message to the Iraqi people, so that they will be encouraged to do their own to bring peace and security to their country, and also to give a strong message that the international community is behind them to support their noble efforts,” he said.Also addressing the Council today, Iraq’s Vice President, Adel Abd Al-Mahdi, said the Baghdad security plan was “based on respect for legality” and envisaged having Iraqi security forces to take over the security dossier by the end of this year.“However we do not wish to be overly optimistic; at the same time, we believe that a number of positive results have already been achieved,” he said. read more

Nucléaire Areva renonce à ses exportations duranium en RussieNucléaire Areva renonce à ses exportations duranium en Russie

first_imgNucléaire : Areva renonce à ses exportations d’uranium en RussieFrance – Après les nombreuses actions organisées par Greenpeace pour dénoncer l’envoi de déchets nucléaires en Russie, Areva a annoncé avoir décidé de mettre un terme à ces exportations. Le groupe nucléaire assure toutefois que les pressions de l’association écologiste n’ont en aucun cas motivé cette décision.Depuis des années, Areva envoie plusieurs tonnes d’uranium appauvri vers la Russie, où le groupe affirme qu’il est réenrichi dans des usines utilisant des technologies dont la France ne dispose pas. À lire aussiLa fusion nucléaire pourrait bien devenir prochainement une réalitéSi Greenpeace a tenté de bloquer de nombreux convois et mène depuis des mois une campagne dénonçant l’exportation de déchets nucléaires en Russie, Areva dément tout lien entre les actions de l’association et sa décision. “Malgré les explications fournies par le  groupe Areva, la presse du week-end rapporte une affirmation de Greenpeaceselon laquelle Areva aurait décidé de mettre fin aux transports d’uranium appauvri vers l’enrichisseur russe Tenex cette année, suggérant que cette décision serait prise sous la pression de cette organisation anti-nucléaire. Cette affirmation est dénuée de tout fondement” assure le groupe nucléaire dans un communiqué. Et d’expliquer avoir prévu depuis 2006 le non renouvellement de son contrat avec le consortium nucléaire Rosatom dont Tenex est une filiale.Le dernier convoi d’uranium appauvri devrait être envoyé dans les semaines à venir. D’après Greenpeace, au courant de cette échéance depuis des mois selon Areva, ce sont 32.200 tonnes de déchets qui ont été exportées en Russie entre 2006 et fin 2009. Si le groupe nucléaire assure que l’uranium avait pour vocation d’être rapatrié en France pour alimenter les centrales nucléaires du pays, Greenpeace affirme que seules 3.090 tonnes de matières ont effectivement été renvoyées en France après avoir été enrichies en Russie.”La polémique internationale créée ces derniers temps autour de ces exportations a enfin eu raison de ce scandale” s’est félicité Yannick Rousselet, en charge de la campagne nucléaire de Greenpeace.Le 1 juin 2010 à 12:42 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Former WWE star Vader collapses following match in Japan on ThursdayFormer WWE star Vader collapses following match in Japan on Thursday

first_img WhatsApp Twitter Google+ Pinterest Those articles said he was given 2 years live. It’s only been 5 months since then. Jason Namako RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR I’m confused. Wasn’t there an article not very long ago that Vader was dying? Former WWE and WCW star Vader (Leon White) is said to have collapsed after wrestling a match at Koruaken Hall in Tokyo, Japan on Thursday. Vader was wrestling in a 6-Man Tag, alongside Keiji Muto and AKIRA against WWE Hall of Famer Tatsumi Fujinami, Riki Choshu and Shiro Koshinaka to commemorate the 45th Anniversary of Fujinami’s pro wrestling debut. Vader was said to have collapsed immediately following the match when Antonio Inoki came down for a ceremony honoring Fujinami. Vader was able to leave on his own power to the back and attended a party held by Fujinami in the hours following the event. Vader posted the following on Twitter on Thursday night, revealing that the cause for the collapse came due to being dropped on his head early on in the match and downplayed that it had to do with his heart issues he has mentioned that he has been dealing with over the last several months. last night the first match for Fujinamis 45th anneversary show in Tokyo Sold out Did the opening spot with Fujinami I dropped on my head— Big Van Vader (@itsvadertime) April 20, 2017 April 21, 2017 at 10:30 am Now Playing Up Next Seth Rollins Kurt Angle Ronda Rousey Releases Mugshot After Arrest On WWE Raw Videos Articles April 21, 2017 at 7:34 pm Get well soon, Vader.

Ryanair Is now a good time to invest in budget airlinesRyanair Is now a good time to invest in budget airlines

first_img Close On October 18, Ryanair (UK Code: RYA) bowed to the inevitable and admitted that the weakness of sterling would hurt profits this year.The airline cut its profit guidance by 5% to between €1.30bn (£1.16bn, $1.42bn) and €1.35bn in the year to March 2017.This announcement follows an 18% drop in sterling against the euro since 23 June (see Chart 1), and a similar profit warning less than two weeks earlier from chief competitor easyJet (code: EZJ), which warned of a £90m hit to profits from the fall in the British currency.Why should a fall in the value of sterling have such a negative effect on these airlines? Because the pound now buys a lot fewer euros, we are all thinking twice about our tourist forays abroad in Europe, where these two budget carriers make their money.Lets not exaggerate, Ryanair is still very impressiveDespite this recent disappointment, lets not forget that Ryanair has still seen profits boom since 2014, on the back of a stellar record of growth in sales. Over this period, Ryanair has overtaken all Europes flag-carrying airlines to become the biggest air passenger carrier by far in Europe, now carrying more than100 million passengers annually (see Chart 2).At the companys guided €1.30-€1.35bn for the year ending March 2017, Ryanairs net profits will still be way ahead of every previous year bar 2016 (see Chart 2).But lets face it, people will still go on holiday in 2017While the currency is certainly off-putting for those of us thinking about arranging our holidays for next year, I honestly dont think that it will stop us going abroad. For one thing, holidaying in the UK isnt exactly cheap either, and the weather is certainly anything but guaranteed to be good.But it does present a challenge to all airlines and tour operators right now, with the risk that a further fall in the pound could trigger further profit warnings in the next few months.According to the Office for National Statistics, we made 67.8 million visits abroad in the 12 months to July 2016, a rise of 7% on a year earlier. And we spent a massive £40.8bn on these visits, a rise of 9% on the previous year.So while we might tighten our holiday budgets and seek out cheaper destinations, we will still mostly fly abroad for our holidays. So, I dont think that this presents a huge ongoing problem for the budget airlines, but rather more of a temporary setback.Also dont forget that there should be an offset from more foreign tourists wanting to take advantage of the cheaper pound to come to visit the UK. The past couple of years has seen a steady increase in the number of overseas visitors to the UK to more than three million per month (see Chart 4), and this could increase markedly in the months ahead.Brexit could have a much larger effect in the medium-term on flag-carrying airlines such as International Consolidated Airlines Group (UK code: IAG), the parent company for British Airways, Iberia and Aer Lingus. Flag carriers depend much more on business travel for their profits, and so if big businesses relocate out of the UK on the back of Brexit, this would be a more permanent dent in their business.Should we buy Ryanair and eayJet today?Both Ryanair and easyJet present cheap value shares today, post-profit warnings and share price falls. But is it sensible to buy their shares? I personally would wait a little, to see how the pound moves in the short term, as any further fall in the pound could trigger a further fall in airline profits.Instead, think of those exporting companies that can benefit from a cheaper pound to sell more UK-produced goods abroad such as British Aerospace (code BA) in aerospace and defence, Diageo (code DGE) in wine and spirits and Burberry (BRBY) in luxury goods.

A harmony meal for Bangladeshi migrants indeedA harmony meal for Bangladeshi migrants indeed

first_imgMarlene Chua, 28 (extreme right) and her sister with their guests on 17 June. Photo source: CNA InsiderAt least eight families of Singapore hosted Iftar or dinner for the Bangladeshi migrant workers, showing a gesture that is considered unprecedented.The hosts prepared the meal and invited the workers who are building Singapore’s roads and high-rises, reports CNA.The Singapore families were said to have been inspired by a video posted by Singapore-based Television channel CNA Insider about life of a Muslim Bangladeshi worker during Ramadan or the month of fasting.The hosts ranged from Singaporeans of Bangladeshi descent to non-Muslims who catered especially for their guests’ halal diet, said the report.“When we saw the video feature by CNA insider, it really struck a chord with us,” Tayef Quader, 30, was quoted to have said.Bangladeshi decent Tayef and his wife Farhana Hossain – who work at a local university — cooked dishes such as chicken biryani and beef tripe curry and invited two guests.“We have never had the opportunity to show them our appreciation and host them at our own home, so we jumped at it. Sharing our meal during this holy month is an even greater blessing,” Tayef told the media outlet.Among the Singaporean hosts were Marlene Chua, 28, a civil servant and Nicholas Yeo, 31, who made sure their guests were received with utmost cordiality, the report said.“My wife, friends and I just set out to treat them like we would anyone else, and it was a great chance to get to know them better,” Nicholas was quoted to have said.Overwhelmed by the friendly gestures from the Singaporean hosts, 32-year-old Shariful Islam was said to have been emotional. A father of an eight-year-old daughter named Fatimah, he was reminiscent of his days she spent with his family back homemany times that night.“I’m missing my mother, my wife, and my daughter Fatimah, I so miss, so miss,” he told CNA Insider, eyes welling up.The hosts said they learnt more about the struggles that migrant workers face in Singapore – but also found admiration for the volunteer work the men did, and “their dedication to improve themselves in spite of the limited free time they have”.To facilitate the home visits at short notice, CNA Insider tied up with two organisations named SDI Academy and the IYC, the latter aims to involve different groups – like migrant workers and non-Muslims – in the Eid celebrations to shatter the people’s negative stereotypes of each other.IYC co-founder Noor Mastura said she hopes participants would become ambassadors to their own communities by this kind of interactions.Amazed by the experience, one of the hosts, Yeo said, she would be glad to do this “on an annual or even more regular basis” and urged more Singaporeans to reach out and invite migrant workers to a meal.last_img read more

Even if it passes, it will have to also secure approval from the House, as well as the signature of President Trump, who has given all indications of favoring the FCC’s repeal.But those uncertain prospects didn’t stop net neutrality advocates from once again engaging their supporters. The latest online action, dubbed the “Red Alert,” was organized by Fight for the Future, Demand Progress and Free Press Action, a coalition that had also organized previous online campaigns against the repeal of net neutrality. It was joined by non-profits like the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Common Cause and Firefox maker Mozilla, as well as a range of tech startups and media companies including Vimeo, Funny Or Die, Sonos and Pornhub.The action is one of a number of last-ditch efforts to reinstate net neutrality after the current FCC repealed the Open Internet Order in December. Democrats are using the Congressional Review Act, which is designed to give lawmakers a chance to review federal regulations, to force a floor vote to restore net neutrality.Separately, net neutrality supporters are looking to fight the repeal in the courts. Attorneys general from 21 states and the District of Columbia filed a lawsuit in January, and some tech companies filed their own lawsuit in March.The Open Internet order was passed by the FCC in 2015, and barred internet and wireless service providers from slowing down or otherwise discriminating against online services. The goal of these rules was to make sure that service providers wouldn’t give preferred access to their own streaming services, or charge competing streaming services extra for faster access to consumers’ homes. The FCC rescinded that order in December under new Republican leadership.center_img Visitors of sites like Reddit, Etsy, Tumblr, Tinder and Match.com were greeted by a bright red splash page Wednesday that implored them to take action and contact their lawmakers to speak out for net neutrality. This latest day of action coincided with a renewed push by congressional Democrats to reinstate the FCC’s Open Internet Rules.On Wednesday, Senate Democrats filed paperwork to trigger a vote on a resolution to restore the FCC’s net neutrality rules. So far, all 49 members of the Democratic caucus are in favor of the resolution, along with one Republican, Susan Collins of Maine, and the Senate’s GOP leadership will have until June 12 to bring a vote to the floor.Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), appearing at a press conference with Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and a number of other Democrats, said that he believed passage of the resolution in the Senate would “supercharge the effort in the House.” He acknowledged that the vote would “allow senators to show once and for all where everyone stands.”last_img read more

In its second year now, the show puts up the latest trends, fashion and techniques in tattoo art. Seminars, training as well as demonstrations are scheduled combined with lots of music, get togethers, parties, food and fun for the participants and tattoo families. It provides a platform for all tattoo professionals across the country. ‘There are around 40 to 50 tattoo artistes who have come together to learn at this convention. The inter-country participation at the event is a great learning experience. One of the major advantages is that the skills and techniques of the art gets upgraded,’ said Aditi Naithani, a participant and a tattoo artiste.‘Tattooing as an art is interesting. It requires physical labour coupled with mental concentration. Once you indulge in it, you are transfered beyond the tangible and the audible.

The interior has HP’s well-spaced keyboard with speaker vents on each side and a fingerprint reader just beneath it. The side bezels are incredibly slim, but the top one has some meat on it due to the IR webcam. When I folded this baby into tablet mode, the back of the lid actually magnetized to the underside, giving it a more clean and stable convertible design, compared with non-magnetic alternatives. At 3 pounds and 12.7 x 8.5 x 0.7 inches, the EliteBook x360 is relatively light and slim for a 14-inch notebook. The Dell Latitude 7490 (3.5 pounds, 0.7 inches) is a little bigger, while the Huawei MateBook X Pro (2.9 pounds, 0.6 inches) and the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (6th Gen) (2.5 pounds, 0.6 inches) have a smaller footprint. Ports The EliteBook x360 has a healthy amount of ports. The left side features one USB 3.1 port, a headphone jack, the power button and a security lock slot, while the right holds one USB 3.1 port, an HDMI 1.4 port, two Thunderbolt 3 ports and the volume rocker. Security and Durability Don’t let the petite body fool you. The x360 1040 passed 12 MIL-STD-810G tests, so it can survive drops, vibrations, shock and temperature shock, high and low temperatures, dust, extreme altitudes, humidity, sand, an explosive atmosphere and an entire freezing and thawing process. In regards to security, you get Intel vPro for remote management, an IR camera to access Windows Hello and a fingerprint reader. The laptop also comes with HP Sure Start, which is a self-healing BIOS, and HP Sure Run, which protects the security processes from malware. You can get a configuration with HP’s Sure View, which is a privacy display that narrows viewing angles. Display While the EliteBook x360’s 14-inch, 1920 x 1080 panel produces great color and brightness, the display has a grainy-film effect caused by the anti-glare solution, which is concerning in a $2,000-plus laptop. Other manufacturers also make matte panels, but this one has me constantly fighting the urge to wipe what looks like a fingerprint-smudged screen. We also tested the glossy display, and it’s a much needed improvement. When Rafiki snapped the red root in the recent trailer for The Lion King, it created a cloud of crimson dust that was striking on the EliteBook x360’s screen. The hairs on Simba’s adorable head were somewhat fuzzy due to the filmy layer on the anti-glare display, but his fur was more pronouced on the glossy one. When an older Simba roars at the end of the trailer, the surrounding rocks were visible despite the lack of light. While the EliteBook x360’s 14-inch, 1920 x 1080 panel produces great color and brightness, the display has a grainy-film effect caused by the anti-glare solution. Reproducing 120 percent of the sRGB spectrum with the anti-glare screen (128 percent on glossy), the EliteBook x360’s display skids past the 117-percent premium laptop average and the Latitude 7490 (118 percent). However, the MateBook X Pro and the ThinkPad X1 Carbon did a little better, reaching 124 and 129 percent, respectively. MORE: Laptops with the Best Display Brightness The EliteBook x360’s panel averaged 340 nits of brightness (346 nits on glossy), beating the 328-nit category average, as well as the Latitude 7490 (277 nits) and the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (293 nits). But it didn’t come close to the MateBook X Pro’s 458 nits. Keyboard, Touchpad and Pen HP’s elegantly carved keyboard provides an immensely satisfying typing experience, as each key delivered solid tactile feedback. I only wish that the white backlighting were a little stronger. The EliteBook’s keys have only 1.4 millimeters of travel (we prefer 1.5 to 2.0mm), but the keyboard’s 70 grams of actuation force more than make up for it. I sped through 73 words per minute on the 10fastfingers.com typing test, beating my usual 66 wpm. The EliteBook x360’s HP Active Pen G2 has three programmable buttons and 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity. It felt good to hold, and it moved fluidly as I used it to design a mock-dungeon for my Dungeons & Dragons campaign. The pen is also magnetic, so it can attach to the left side of the chassis for safe-keeping, and it can be recharged via a USB Type-C port. HP’s elegantly carved keyboard provides an immensely satisfying typing experience. The 4.3 x 2.5-inch is smooth to the touch and offers a weighty click, which makes navigation feel so natural. Windows 10 gestures like two-finger scrolling and three-finger tabbing were effective. Audio These Bang & Olufsen top-firing speakers reproduced Blue October’s “Into the Ocean” with zeal, as the sound blasted across our small lab. The opening vocals and soft guitar strums intertwined with solid amount of treble and bass. During the second verse, the drums lulled me into a trance with their rhythmic beat as they supported the vocals, but it was somewhat difficult to make out the bass guitar. MORE: I Spent More Than $200 on Headphones: You Should Too The Bang & Olufsen Audio software offers a full equalizer along with presets for Voice, Movies and Music. Performance The EliteBook x360’s Core i7-8650U processor with 16GB of RAM didn’t skip a beat as I blasted through 40 Google Chrome tabs and three 1080p YouTube videos, all while I played Candy Crush Saga. On Geekbench 4.3, the EliteBook x360 scored 14,331 and surpassed our premium laptop average (13,145) along with the Core i7-8550U-powered MateBook X Pro (13,769) and the ThinkPad X1 Carbon (13,680). The Latitude 7490’s Core i7-8650U nailed down a higher 15,500. The EliteBook x360 sped through our Excel test (matching 65,000 names and addresses) in 1 minute and 22 seconds, which is slightly faster than the 1:31 category average. The Latitude 7490 (1:19) and ThinkPad X1 Carbon (1:11) did it faster, but the MateBook X Pro (1:49) was left behind. Transcoding a 4K video to 1080p took 19 minutes and 1 second for EliteBook x360 1040, marking its victory over the premium laptop average (21:43), the Latitude 7490 (21:35) and the MateBook X Pro (27:18). Meanwhile, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon came out ahead of the EliteBook by one second. The EliteBook x360’s Core i7-8650U processor with 16GB of RAM didn’t skip a beat as I blasted through 40 Google Chrome tabs and three 1080p YouTube videos. Armed with a 512GB SSD, the EliteBook x360 copied 4.97GB of data in just 7 seconds, translating to 727 megabytes per second, which crushed the competition. The Latitude 7490 (256GB SSD; 299 MBps), MateBook X Pro (512GB SSD; 283 MBps), ThinkPad X1 Carbon (512GB SSD; 565 MBps) and even the average premium laptop (528 MBps) produced much lower scores. Graphics The EliteBook x360’s Intel UHD 620 GPU scored 88,501 on the 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited synthetic graphics benchmark, sliding past the 88,375 premium laptop average. With the same GPU, the Latitude 7490 and ThinkPad X1 Carbon hit a lower 87,894 and 88,143, respectively. But the MateBook X Pro’s discrete Nvidia GeForce MX150 soared past the competition with 116,359. MORE: Best Graphics Performance In real-world testing, the EliteBook x360 averaged 62 frames per second on the Dirt 3 racing game benchmark, which doesn’t match the 76-fps category average. The Latitude 7490 (64 fps) and ThinkPad X1 Carbon (63 fps) didn’t do much better. The MateBook X Pro, however, excelled with 117 fps. Battery Life The EliteBook x360 will get you through your workday and then some. After continuously surfing the web over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness, the battery lasted 8 hours and 59 minutes, which surpasses the 8:31 premium laptop average and the Latitude 7490 (8:55). However, the MateBook X Pro (9:55) and ThinkPad X1 Carbon (11:01) blew HP’s laptop out of the water. Webcam The test shots I took on the EliteBook x360’s 1080p webcam didn’t come out too grainy, as I could spot some detail in my beard. But when I zoomed in, everything was soft and muddy. It picked up the thin turquoise lines on my flannel shirt, but the webcam blew out the ceiling lights and made the rest of the room darker than it should have been. Overall, it’s not bad, but it’s not good, either. Heat This baby is a stone-cold killer. We streamed a 15-minute HD video and the underside hit only 91 degrees, which is below our 95-degree comfort threshold. The center of the keyboard and touchpad measured 87 and 86 degrees, respectively. The hottest it got was 94 degrees on the lower-left underside. Software and Warranty HP placed a few of its branded utilities to help get you started. There’s HP JumpStart (a tutorial for Windows 10), HP Sure Click (web browser security), HP PhoneWise (mobile device management), HP Recovery Manager (maintenance and recovery data), HP Support Assistant (updates HP device drivers) and HP ePrint SW (tracks printing status). There is some Windows 10 bloatware, including Township, Cooking Fever and Candy Crush Saga. Our configuration comes with a three-year limited warranty (downgradable to one year). See how HP performed on our Tech Support Showdown and Best and Worst Brands ranking. Bottom Line This is one badass machine. HP’s EliteBook x360 1040 G5 backs up its powerful specs and flexible design with a comfortable keyboard and solid audio paired with a long-lasting battery and excellent security features. What gives me pause is its inordinately hazy display. If you want to save some money, you can get the MateBook X Pro for $1,499, which has a brighter display, longer battery life, better graphics and a slimmer profile. However, if you’re after something more versatile, the EliteBook x360 is a great overall 2-in-1 business laptop.

Chrome to skip low priority tasks until shutdown to reduce memory useChrome to skip low priority tasks until shutdown to reduce memory use

first_imgChrome to skip low priority tasks until shutdown to reduce memory use by Martin Brinkmann on February 11, 2019 in Google Chrome – 21 commentsGoogle is working on a new memory reducing feature for the company’s Chrome web browser. The new function, called “Skip best effort tasks” landed in Chrome Canary just recently; it is designed to skip certain low priority tasks during runtime to improve memory use of the web browser. The skipped tasks will be executed during shutdown instead, according to the provided description.Skip best effort tasks is not enabled by default in Chrome Canary. It is available as an experimental flag and a startup parameter; which of the two you use is up to you.Here is how you enable the flag in Chrome:Make sure Chrome Canary is up to date.Load chrome://flags/#disable-best-effort-tasks in the browser’s address bar; doing so should open the right flag.Set the status of the flag to enabled.Restart the Chrome browser.You may also start Chrome with the parameter –disable-best-effort-tasks for the same effect.You can undo the change at any time by setting the experimental flag to default or disabled, or by removing the startup parameter if you used it.Chrome informs you that you run an “unsupported command line flag and that stability and security “will suffer” because of that. I did not notice any issues while running Chrome with the flag enabled though; it is possible that the notification is a generic one.The flag’s description reads:With this flag on, tasks of the lowest priority will not be executed until shutdown. The queue of low priority tasks can increase memory usage.Also, while it should be possible to use Chrome almost normally with this flag, it is expected that some non-visible operations such as writing user data to disk, cleaning caches, reporting metrics or updating components won’t be performed until shutdown.The description explains what is happening when you enable the experimental feature. Chrome maintains a queue of low priority tasks by default; the queue may grow over time and that may lead to increased memory usage.Chrome with the experimental flag enabled won’t execute these low priority tasks during runtime to save memory. The tasks will be executed during shutdown instead; this may lead to a delayed shutdown.Google mentions Telemetry, disk cache cleaning, writing user data to disk, or updating components as low priority tasks.The new effort to reduce Chrome’s memory usage is not the only one that came to light recently. Google is working on a feature called Never Slow Mode that aims to limit resource requests by blocking those that exceed certain size restrictions.Now You: What is the most memory friendly browser currently?

Google bids farewell to its audio dongle Chromecast AudioGoogle bids farewell to its audio dongle Chromecast Audio

first_imgLast week, Google decided to stop manufacturing its audio dongle, Chromecast Audio that allowed users to connect speakers to their Google cast setup since the company has a variety of new audio products for users.The remaining stock of the Chromecast Audio is being sold for $15 instead of $35. The Chromecast Audio dongle is designed such that it could be plugged to a regular speaker via a 3.5 mm audio cable. The device works smoothly as it can get audio from plenty of apps at a louder volume without resorting to Bluetooth. In 2015, Chromecast Audio was launched along with the second-generation Chromecast. Over the years, the Chromecast Audio evolved and also featured multi-room support. Google will still support its Chromecast Audio users for the time being. In a statement to TechCrunch, Google said, “Our product portfolio continues to evolve, and now we have a variety of products for users to enjoy audio. We have therefore stopped manufacturing our Chromecast Audio products. We will continue to offer assistance for Chromecast Audio devices, so users can continue to enjoy their music, podcasts and more.” It seems Google is more inclined towards getting people to purchase its home products, Google Assistant or cast enabled speakers from its partners. Users are giving mixed reviews to this news. Few users are now scared to invest in Google products as they think, Google often cans its products. One of the users, commented on HackerNews, “Google is really developing a reputation for starting and canning projects. I’d recommend not getting too invested in their products when possible.” Google has previously shut down a lot of services in recent years, with the latest one being the ‘Inbox’ which will shut in March, this year. Users were also unhappy when Google decided to discontinue Google Reader in 2013. But this somewhere hints Google’s tendency of shutting down its popular products. One of the comments on HackerNews, reads, “Google Reader was damn useful and is a poster child of Google’s habit of hyping up useful products and then canning them.” Few users are still in support of Google and its decision. One of the users commented, “I don’t know who out there is heavily invested in a $35 audio dongle. I love mine, but it still works just as well today as it did yesterday and not being able to order more isn’t causing me any anxiety.” Another user commented, “The 3-something year old hardware dongle is no longer being made, that’s it. That’s the entirety of the news. The Cast project as a whole is not being canned. Cast-enabled speakers, receivers, etc… are all still widely available from a wide number of manufacturers, that’s not changing.” Read Next TLS comes to Google public DNS with support for DNS-over-TLS connections Researchers release unCaptcha2, a tool that uses Google’s speech-to-text API to bypass the reCAPTCHA audio challenge Google’s secret Operating System ‘Fuchsia’ will run Android Applications: 9to5Google Reportlast_img read more

QA Why marches trigger Northern Ireland strifeQA Why marches trigger Northern Ireland strife

first_img Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix WHO’S MARCHING?The Protestant “loyal orders,” chiefly two groups called the Orangemen and the Apprentice Boys. Members carry hand-painted banners depicting key historical events and values, both political and religious, while groups of fife and drum _ often called “kick the pope” bands _ play tunes ranging from the spiritual to the overtly anti-Irish.WHY DO THEY DO IT?For the Protestants, a successful march demonstrates their continued hold over endlessly disputed territory, town by town, street by street. They expect their right to freedom of assembly to be upheld by the law.But for most Catholics, the marches are offensive, considered mass intimidation by the Protestant majority.WHO ARE THE ORANGEMEN?The Orangemen honor King William of Orange, a Dutchman who ousted a Catholic from the British throne in 1688 and then defeated that rival, James II, in a series of battles in Ireland. The Orange Order’s biggest marches come each July 12, the anniversary of the 1690 Battle of the Boyne, when William’s army forded a river south of Belfast to rout James’ forces _ and according to Orange lore, ensured Protestant civil and religious liberty from that day forward. WHO ARE THE APPRENTICE BOYS?The Apprentice Boys of Derry, based in Northern Ireland’s second-largest city, Londonderry, honor the other totemic moment from those 17th-century religious wars: the 1689 Siege of Derry. The recently deposed James, seeking to reclaim his London throne from his sanctuary in predominantly Catholic Ireland, sent forces to demand that the Protestant garrison of the walled town surrender. Teenage apprentices bolted the gates shut, starting a 105-day siege that the residents survived by eating rats.ISN’T THIS ANCIENT HISTORY?No. Both fraternal groups exist, in part, to keep these vivid ancestral memories alive in today’s Northern Ireland. The Protestant community here has what sociologists call a “siege mentality,” a view that they can never feel at ease because of a traitorous Irish minority forever committed to pushing Northern Ireland out of the United Kingdom and into the Irish Republic.AREN’T THESE PROTESTANTS IRISH?Ask them. The answer is a thunderous no, they’re British. But this basic issue of identity continues to be questioned to this day _ even, most hurtfully, by fellow Britons in neighboring Britain. Associated PressBELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) – Belfast is seeing one of its biggest Protestant parades in years Saturday, with thousands participating amid fears that it will degenerate into street clashes with the police and Northern Ireland’s Catholic minority. These one-sided marches have tested tempers each year since the 19th century, and show no sign of abating despite Northern Ireland’s successful peace process. The AP explores why. Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project ARE CATHOLICS RIGHT TO BE CONCERNED?Absolutely. Orangemen provided the organizational muscle behind Northern Ireland’s creation in 1921 shortly before the rest of Ireland won independence from Britain, binding together Protestants under one anti-Catholic banner determined to stop “Rome rule” from Dublin.For its first half-century, Northern Ireland was an overtly Orange state with a Protestant-only government. They discriminated against Catholics in housing, jobs and voting power. The marches, given safe passage by a similarly Orange police force, underscored the Catholics’ second-class status.WHICH MEANS RIOTS, RIGHT?Yep. It’s no accident that Act I, Scene I of Northern Ireland’s conflict in 1969 began with Catholic hostility to a march: the Apprentice Boys’ main annual parade in Londonderry. Days of clashes between Catholic civilians and Protestant police forced Britain to deploy its army as peacekeepers _ a fateful decision that inspired the rise of the modern IRA and its aim to overthrow Northern Ireland.HASN’T THE PEACE PROCESS IMPROVED THINGS?Mostly yes. Also no.Nearly two decades of peacemaking have transformed Northern Ireland almost beyond recognition from its blood-stained past. Paramilitary cease-fires by the IRA and outlawed Protestant gangs are underpinned by disarmament, troops have been withdrawn to barracks, Britain has promoted Catholic recruitment to create a balanced police force and a unity Protestant-Catholic government shares power with surprising harmony.

But the clock turns backward each “marching season” _ and increased rioting has been the norm for most summers since 1995.___Editor’s note: Shawn Pogatchnik has covered Northern Ireland for The Associated Press since 1991.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.
