By Amit Kumar Das New Delhi, Jul 10 (PTI) Forced to dump the dangerous Produnova routine following a career-threatening knee injury, ace Indian gymnast Dipa Karmakar will once again switch to the vault of death after the Asian Games. Dipa had put Indian gymnastics on world map with her gravity-defying display in Produnova vault at the 2016 Rio Olympics, where she finished a creditable fourth. However, she couldn’t compete in any tournament after the Rio high due to an Anterior Crucial Ligament (ACL) injury in her right knee. She had to undergo surgery in April last year and missed the Asian Championship, World Championship in Canada last year and the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia. Returning to action at the World Challenge Cup in Turkey on July 8, Dipa opted for Handspring 360 and Tsukuhara 720 en route to her gold medal winning feat. She had scripted history by becoming the first Indian gymnast to clinch a gold medal at a global event. But Dipa said she will not give up Produnova. “I will do it but it will take time. I have spent a lot of time in mastering this but after injury it was difficult. Difficulty level in Produnova has been reduced to 6.4 from 7, in fact average scores in difficulties are being reduced but I’ll be back doing Produnova. I will not give it up,” Dipa told PTI today. Her mentor and coach Bisheshwar Nandi, who has guided her career since her first steps in gymnastics, said there is not much time to try it at the upcoming Asian Games but he is hopeful to switch back to Produnova by the year end.advertisement “I will try for Produnova by the end of this year because sometimes she feels pain in her knee even now. It is a complicated sport and it is natural but she will overcome that,” he said. “According to the new code of points, the difficulty level of Produnova has been reduced to 6.4 from 7, but we will keep it as we have worked hard on this for the last few years.” Dipa scored 14.15 to clinch the gold medal in Turkey but said she will need to score higher to win a medal at the Asian Games. “Asian Games is very tough. China, Japan, Korea will pose a big challenge. I can’t guarantee a medal. But I will give my best. I realised where I lacked during the World Cup. I will work on those areas. In Asian Games I will have to score more, may be 14.2 or 14.3 will give me a chance to win a medal,” she said. Nandi said Dipa will look to increase the difficulty level ahead of the Asian Games. “The gold has given her a lot of confidence and there is a month’s time, so we will try to increase the difficulty level now. She will have to go for a score of 14.5 to win a medal. It will be a big challenge,” he said. “If we can go from 360 to 540 in Handspring and Tsukuhara 720, then it will be a big boost. And if we can bring her back to her level in Produnova, then we can challenge at the world level since qualifying for Olympics is the aim.” Talking about her performance at World Challenge Cup, Dipa said: “I scored 14.15 which is not a bad score, which can hopefully grant me a place in the final of Asian Games. Of course, increasing difficulty is important but I can’t take too much risk with my leg, I will go by what my coach decides.” Asked if she ever felt disheartened during the injury phase, Dipa said: “I was nervous because a lot happens in two years. Body changes. Difficulty levels also changed. It took a lot of mental and physical strength but I had no doubt about my comeback. “A lot of people said it is extremely difficult for gymnasts to come back after surgery, some were saying I am finished since it was two years after Olympics. “But I was ready to go through the surgery after I knew I had an ACL. There are other sportspersons who made a successful comeback. I tried to take it positively and due to the support of my coach, family, physio, SAI, Sports Ministry, GoSports I could make a comeback. “I feel blessed that all celebrities supported me. They congratulated me. The last two years, I faced a lot of criticism with people saying I should give up and sit at home, and I am finished. So I am glad that I was not forgotten.” PTI ATK ATK PDSPDSadvertisement
EDMONTON, A.B. – The Alberta government says it’s investing $3.7 billion to move the province’s land-locked oil to market by rail.It says 4,400 leased railway cars will move up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day by 2020.Shipments are expected to begin as early as July. “Pipelines will always be the best, most efficient, most economical long-term solution,” Notley told a news conference Tuesday.“We must take action today to provide more relief to our energy workers and the families who rely on these good jobs across this province and this country.She says her government has been studying the plan since November and is ready to move forward.“Albertans don’t just stand by. We take action.”The province estimates the plan will lead to a $5.9-billion increase in royalties, tax revenues and profits over three years, meaning a net gain of $2.2 billion.It expects the discount for Western Canadian heavy oil versus U.S. light crude will shrink by US$4 a barrel. The rail investment is meant to be a medium-term measure as new pipelines to coastal ports, such as the Trans Mountain expansion to the West Coast, remain in limbo.
“We are here to reinforce that message and the determination of the Council to support you and all parties to the CPA [Comprehensive Peace Agreement] in that process,” said Ambassador Susan Rice of the United States, who is heading the delegation.On 9 January the inhabitants of southern Sudan will vote on whether to secede from the rest of the country, while the residents of the central area of Abyei will vote on whether to be part of the north or the south.The referenda will be the final phase in the implementation of the CPA, which was signed in 2005 to end two decades of warfare between the northern-based Government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A) in the south.The Council’s visit was a follow-up to last month’s high-level meeting on Sudan held under UN auspices in New York that produced a communiqué calling on the international community to respect the outcome of the referenda if they meet those stipulated criteria.Ms. Rice noted that the “core responsibility” for successful implementation of the CPA remains in the hands of the regional Government of Southern Sudan (GoSS), the national Government in Khartoum, and the Sudanese people.The delegation concluded its two-day stop in Juba, the capital of southern Sudan, with a visit to the Dr. John Garang Unified Memorial Police Training Academy in the nearby town of Rejaf.The visit to the police-training academy was significant because the Southern Sudan Police Service (SSPS) will play a central role in crowd control and the securing of polling centres and ballot boxes during the referenda.“The UN has been one of the key components in the support that we are getting for the development of the police and in training these recruits […] from the 10 states,” said GoSS Minister for Internal Affairs Gier Chuang Aluong.Since July, UN Police advisers have trained over 11,500 SSPS officers in referendum security procedures and regulations throughout southern Sudan, according to Rajesh Dewan, the Police Commissioner in the UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS).An initial group of 5,400 police cadets who began to receive instruction at the Rejaf training facility in January is expected to graduate at the end of this month, and a second group of 4,000 cadets will subsequently start their training.Yesterday, the Council delegation held a two-hour closed-door meeting with senior Southern Sudanese officials led by GoSS President Salva Kiir.The delegation travelled to Darfur today, from where they will proceed to Khartoum before completing their mission on Saturday. 7 October 2010The Security Council delegation visiting Sudan today stressed that the two referenda scheduled for January must be held on time, in a peaceful environment and according to the provisions of the peace agreement that ended the war between the north and the south.
“While we continue to strive for access to all areas, this is still a major breakthrough which will enable us to assist those who continue to be displaced by the conflict or those who have decided to return to their homes and are in dire need of food assistance,” said WFP’s Country Director in Sudan, Adnan Khan. Fighting between the Sudanese armed forces and the rebel Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) broke out in Blue Nile state in September 2011, after neighbouring South Sudan seceded under the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement that ended a decades-long civil war. The fighting in Blue Nile displaced and then isolated tens of thousands of people.“We are giving a two-month ration for this first round of distribution, following an assessment which we carried out early last month in two of the areas most severely affected by the conflict, Geissan and Kurmuk,” said WFP Programme Officer Arduino Mangoni. He is in Geissan leading a team that monitors the distribution of food to 12,000 people. WFP plans to reach an additional 39,000 people in Kurmuk.Additional WFP staff are in four other localities in Blue Nile state to determine how people are coping with their food needs, what food is available in the market and at what price. “The overall plan is to assist all those we can reach in the six localities before the onset of the rainy season in May,” Mr. Khan said. WFP has said it will need an additional $20.5 million to buy 17,000 metric tons of food it estimates will be needed.
In a press release issued today, the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) said it will go forward with planned talks with all major Libyan stakeholders to be held at the UN Office in Geneva tomorrow, 14 January, in an attempt to reach agreement on how to peacefully manage the remainder of the transitional period. “UNSMIL views this new round of dialogue as providing a key opportunity for the Libyan parties to engage in a political process that paves the way towards breaking the political deadlock underlying the political crisis and institutional crisis that have engulfed the country,” the Mission explained. “In launching this new round of talks, UNSMIL reminds all parties that dialogue is an inclusive and transparent process that is driven by the higher Libyan national interest, including safeguarding the country’s national unity and territorial integrity.” The move follows a recent outburst of violence which has further rattled the beleaguered nation, in conflict since the beginning of its civil war in 2011 which resulted in the ouster of late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. In addition to mounting numbers of casualties, the continuing fighting has also caused a humanitarian crisis with at least 120,000 people forced to flee their homes, resulting in consequent shortages in both food and medical supplies.Meanwhile, in the eastern city of Benghazi, an uptick in violence has seen 450 people killed since October as residents continue to face shortages in medical care. Moreover, upwards of 15,000 families – some 90,000 people – have been displaced.UNSMIL voiced hope that the planned talks would manage to secure the necessary arrangements for bringing about a total cessation of armed hostilities while also encouraging a phased withdrawal of all armed groups from all major towns and cities, including the capital, Tripoli, in order to allow the Government to reassert its authority over institutions and strategic installations. Among those invited to the upcoming first round of political talks, the UN Mission said it had called upon political and civil society representatives to also attend. Meanwhile, subsequent rounds, potentially scheduled for next week, would include representatives from selected municipalities from across the country.“A process like this cannot satisfy everyone in everything,” the UNSMIL press release continued. “But what is important is that the Libyans seize this opportunity and take the necessary risks for peace by joining these talks, for they will be certain to achieve more by participating rather than by staying away.”
Laptops Components reading • Apple redesigns keyboard in new MacBook Pro update and promises quick repairs on sticky keys See also See All Does the MacBook keyboard get a bum rap? • 4:27 Tags Apple rolled out its butterfly switch design starting with its computer revamp in 2015. The redesign was part of an effort to make laptops thinner and lighter than in the past. The butterfly switch replaced the traditional “scissor” mechanism below each key and was meant to be more stable, responsive and comfortable.But almost immediately, users complained about the feel of the new keyboards and said they could be easily damaged by specks of dust. Some said they had to go a week or more without their computer while Apple replaced not just the unresponsive key, but a substantial part of their MacBook. And the fix wasn’t cheap. Some said the out-of-warranty fix could set them back $700.At least three proposed class action lawsuits have been filed against Apple over the use of the butterfly switch. Butterfly switch problemsA year ago, Apple said it would replace “a small percentage of the keyboards in certain MacBook and MacBook Pro models” whose letters or characters repeated unexpectedly, whose letters or characters didn’t appear, or whose keys felt “sticky” or didn’t respond consistently. That program covered MacBooks released from 2015 to 2017. Apple has redesigned the original butterfly switch keyboard since its first iteration, and the third generation of the keyboard was meant to resolve issues. But users — including high-profile reviewers at publications like The Wall Street Journal — have continued to experience problems.

Here’s how to clean it 47 Apple on Tuesday also said it has sped up the time it takes for a keyboard to be repaired. It didn’t give details on the length of time because that will vary based on a variety of factors. But Apple Stores will prioritize keyboard replacements. The company also is deploying its new keyboard to Apple Stores to be used in repairs. That means if the keyboard on your 2018 MacBook Air fails, you could end up with the new design. 2019 MacBook Pro updatesAlong with announcing updates to its keyboard, Apple on Tuesday unveiled a slight update to its MacBook Pro lineup. The 15- and 13-inch computers will roll out with Intel’s faster eighth- and ninth-generation Core processors, including an eight-core variant, the first time such a powerful processor has appeared in Apple’s MacBook Pro.

Apple will replace all butterfly switch keyboards for free — even on its new MacBook Pro models unveiled Tuesday. The company on Tuesday said it has extended its MacBook keyboard replacement program, which repairs the keyboard that first appeared in the 2015 MacBook. Users have complained about sticky keys, as well as letters typing in duplicate or not typing at all. Apple also said it has changed the material used in its butterfly switch keyboards to avoid the problem of letters double-typing. It declined to provide details about the materials. And it said keyboard repairs will happen faster than before. Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy? In March, Apple apologized and said it was “aware that a small number of users are having issues with their third generation butterfly keyboard.” It added that “the vast majority of Mac notebook customers are having a positive experience.”Still, Apple’s move to extend its keyboard replacement program to all MacBooks with the butterfly switch shows just how much a bad reputation could impact its MacBook sales. By guaranteeing all butterfly switch keyboards sold since 2015, Apple’s giving users peace of mind. If your keyboard fails, you can get it repaired for free. As with the original program announced last year, keyboards can be repaired or replaced for four years after purchase.

November 1, 2016 6 min read Register Now » Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Business owners, be forewarned: The AccTech (accounting + technology) bots are taking over. But they’re not the towering metal giants or eerily humanoid robots of sci-fi nightmares. These bots are lines of code that grab information and communicate with humans about your business operations. They know (almost) everything before you’ve even whispered the thought, and they might want to take your bookkeeper’s job — or maybe just work alongside her.I had a recent conversation with Jan Haugo, CEO and vice president of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers USA (ICBUSA), who emphasized all the ways emerging technologies will transform the role of small business bookkeeping. In particular, we discussed how machine learning and artificial intelligence will enable accountants to interact with bots the same way they would with a human co-worker.Accounting technology brands such as Xero are already capitalizing on this trend. It’s continued its innovation by releasing AI tools that will minimize — and ultimately eliminate — the amount of transaction coding businesses must do. This may seem scary now (at least for a few old-school number crunchers), but as technology develops and people cozy up to the practice, bookkeeping bots will continue their industry domination.The evolution of your company’s bookkeeper.Bookkeepers play a vital role in many organizations, but what happens when bots handle the flow of information and render several of their manual tasks redundant? The common perception of bookkeeping as a reactive role focused on tracking and managing data gets turned upside down.Technology is reaching a point where humans don’t need to be involved in data collection and management. #ZeroDataEntry — meaning functions such as the recording of invoices can occur automatically and without human intervention — is quickly becoming a reality for many accounting teams.The bookkeepers of the future (and, perhaps, the future is now) will go beyond understanding debits and credits and your business’s current software. Bookkeepers must be able to think about technology, address workflow issues and add value on the topics of finance and operational strategy. Evaluate the effects of tech on your company, and decide how your current bookkeeper fits into this future narrative. She can assist in future-proofing your business if you give her a chance to become that AccTech advocate.According to Haugo, the U.S. lags behind other countries in this area, so how can you help to close the gap? With the shifting demands of the bookkeeper, do we have enough of the “right” candidates in the market? And what can you do to accommodate for this new role?These are all important questions. So here’s some advice on finding (and retaining) bookkeepers who will drive your organization into the new era of accounting:1. Know your skills gap — and fill it!According to a survey of American executives, 45 percent believe a lack of skilled labor hinders growth, and another 30 percent believe it negatively affects their businesses’ profits. This is magnified when dealing with numbers professionals. So find out what’s missing, and identify the skill sets that are most critical to your company’s growth. Doing so will help you recruit the right people to fill the gap.But don’t just hire a bookkeeper because your friend recommended her or because you share an alma mater. Instead, conduct your due diligence to ensure you’re building a strong, versatile team with each new recruit.Related: Top 10 Best Chatbot Platform Tools to Build Chatbots for Your Business2. Recruit from a pre-vetted talent pool.It’s more crucial than ever to hire and retain top-notch talent — especially when direct replacement costs up to 60 percent of the previous employee’s salary. But as a small business, you need people now, and you can’t rely on outdated educational institutions to generate the workforce you need. So start looking for candidates elsewhere.If you’re not sure where to find top accounting talent, check out progressive industry resources. Accountex (formerly The Sleeter Group) and Xero invite top-level individuals to speak at their conferences. These panelists are change agents and leaders within the community, making them valuable additions to your network. If they can’t help you directly, they may have the resources to find the right person for you.Related: 5 Data Management Challenges Facing Small Business Owners3. Go beyond the bank reconciliation.Look beyond a candidate’s recordkeeping prowess or whether she can complete a bank reconciliation. Instead, ask if she’s familiar with Xero, and see if she can discuss any of the 400-plus apps that exist within her market.Evaluate her attitudes around cloud accounting and the impact of technology on the industry. Knowing a few tricks with QuickBooks Desktop and Excel won’t cut it, but familiarity with Expensify, Hubdoc, Avalara or Zapier indicate an awareness of how tech transforms bookkeeping.Finally, have her share stories about how she’s continued to hone her skills and what problems she’s solved for previous employers. The future of bookkeeping is about managing data flow, working with tech and problem-solving. Her responses will give insight into how she’ll approach the open position.Related: How Humans Plus Machines Will Equal Amazing Advancements4. Develop talent, and make personnel changes.Bots will force changes in how bookkeepers work. If your current accounting team is filled with smart people you’d like to retain, help them learn relevant skills or transition to new positions within the company.Online education via AccTech products and organizations (such as ICBUSA) have expanded our access to future-forward bookkeeping training. Leveraging these resources for on-the-job training is crucial as companies help current accounting teams prepare for this shift. Those worth keeping will be excited by the opportunities to grow. Someone who’s resistant to change might not be a fit anymore.AI bots will facilitate better, faster data processing, but they can’t do everything. Businesses that welcome the bot takeover and halt their investment in humans will find it impossible to stay competitive. People (still) matter! So strike a balance between talent and tech, and do your part in making this awkward love affair between bots and bookkeepers the thriving marriage it can be.

What is up with the huge Calculator in Windows 10, Microsoft? by Martin Brinkmann on October 05, 2018 in Windows – 45 commentsMicrosoft launched the October 2018 feature update for Windows 10 on October 2, 2018 but restricted it to manual upgrades to the new version.Users and administrators who did upgrade to the new version already, read why you may want to wait with that, may have noticed a number of changes that Microsoft implemented.Those who use the Calculator regularly may have been shocked by the giant size of the Calculator in the new version of Windows 10.The calculator takes up most of the screen when launched initially. The screenshot below shows it right after launch on a 1920×1080 monitor on a PC running Windows 10 version 1809.While the size may work in some situations, when you only open the calculator and nothing else or have a touch device and a small screen, it does not work well in most scenarios.If you like to display the calculator next to another program, say an Excel spreadsheet, a shopping site, or a Word document, you will realize that this may not work with the default interface size.Microsoft has not made the same mistake that it made when it released the Windows 8 operating system though. The operating system lacked options to resize application windows when it was launched which meant that you were stuck with a particular window size or even fullscreen apps.Windows 10 users who dislike the giant size of the Calculator interface can resize it quite easily. Just move the mouse cursor over one of the window edges and use a drag motion to resize it.If you resize the interface enough, you’ll notice that the Memory and History sidebar is hidden from the interface and replaced with an icon that you may activate to display the history.The Calculator remembers the new window size, thankfully, so that it is loaded with the new dimensions whenever you start it on the system.Closing WordsIt is unclear why Microsoft made the decision to inflate the screen of the Calculator app in the new version of Windows 10. Other apps have not received the same treatment in the new version of Windows 10.Now You: What is your take on this?SummaryArticle NameWhat is up with the huge Calculator in Windows 10, Microsoft?DescriptionMicrosoft increased the default size of the Calculator app on Windows 10 version 1809 significantly so that it takes up most of the screen.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement

in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Census Bureau Housing Permits Housing Starts HUD 2016-06-17 Seth Welborn A month after finally showing signs of resuscitation, home starts in May largely flattened out, according to a new report by HUD and the U.S. Census Bureau.Friday’s report found that privately-owned housing starts in May came in at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.164 million. This is 0.3 percent lower than April, though still 9.5 percent up from last May. At the same time, single-family housing starts in May were at a rate of 764,000, which is 0.3 percent higher than in April.Housing completions in May were equally up and down. Privately-owned housing completions were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 988,000, which while 5.1 percent above revised April estimates of 940,000, is 3.5 percent lower than in May 2015. Single-family housing completions in May were at a rate of 717,000, which is 2.3 percent above the revised April rate of 701,000, according to the report.Privately-owned housing units authorized by building permits in May were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1,138,000. This is 0.7 percent above the revised April rate of 1,130,000, but is 10.1 percent below the May 2015 estimate of 1,266,000.Building permits, however, were just simply down. Single-family authorizations in May were at a rate of 726,000, which is 2 percent below revised April figures, the report stated.“This is an important signal that builders are slowing expansion.”Jonathan Smoke, Chief Economist, Realtor.comLooking at the bigger picture, industry analysts see an equally mixed blend of sunlight and shade in the Census data. “Despite monthly volatility, the 12-month rolling total inches upwards to the 50-year average,” said Ralph B McLaughlin, chief economist at Trulia. “Housing starts continue to be a bright spot in an otherwise supply -constrained market.”McLaughlin said the potential for growth in housing starts remains solid as starts hover around 80 percent of the 50-year average, and that even if single family starts are slow, builders are “ gaining ground on what has been a strong four years for multifamily construction.”Robert Dietz, chief economist and senior vice president for economics and housing policy for the National Association of Home Builders, said that an elevated construction pace in February makes the numbers of the past three months a little less than straightforward.But Jonathan Smoke, chief economist, at the National Association of Realtors, found at least one thing to keep an eye on.“The most troubling sign in this year’s new construction data is the continued trend of four straight months of starts exceeding permits,” Smoke said. “This is an important signal that builders are slowing expansion.”With starts exceeding permits and permits on decline on a year-over-year basis, he said, fewer starts and completions could be the reality six months down the road.“The bottom line is that we are not seeing enough new construction to keep pace with household formation, let alone address the fact that we have a shortage in both available rental units and for sale inventory,” Smoke said.
