Reporters Without Borders deplores the risible fine of 15,000 vatu (120 euros) that a court in Port Vila, the capital of the South Pacific island nation of Vanuatu, imposed on infrastructure and public utilities minister Harry Iauko on 8 July for a physical attack on Daily Post publisher Marc Neil-Jones in March.“It is unacceptable that a government minister should get off with such a small fine for assaulting a journalist who criticized him,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The fine is not commensurate with the gravity of the crime and sends the wrong signal to all of Vanuatu’s journalists. We call on the courts to review this sentence in order to protect the media. Failure to do so would encourage journalists to censor themselves.”Neil-Jones was attacked in his office on 4 March by a total of eight men including Iauko. According to Neil-Jones, the minister accused him of writing “bad things” about him, alluding to articles criticising the minister’s handling of various issues and alleged embezzlement by Airports Vanuatu Ltd, an aviation company that works closely with the government.The seven other men involved in the attack were given fines of up to 1,000 dollars. ————Helped by thugs, cabinet minister beats up newspaper publisher07-03-2011Reporters Without Borders condemns a brutal attack on Daily Post publisher Marc Neil-Jones in Port Vila, the capital of the South Pacific island nation of Vanuatu, on 4 March. Neil-Jones accuses infrastructure and public utilities minister Harry Iauko of organizing and participating in the assault, which was took place in the journalist’s office.“Threats and acts of violence against a journalist who is just doing his job are unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We warn Prime Minister Sato Kilman that his credibility will be questioned if this goes unpunished. We urge the police to carry out an exhaustive investigation without delay and we urge the prime minister to do everything possible to ensure its success. Otherwise he will be regarded as an accomplice to violence by a member of his government.”Neil-Jones said he was attacked and beaten in his office by a total of eight men including Iauko, who accused him of writing “bad things” about him. His newspaper has published articles criticising the minister’s handling of various issues. It has also raised questions about Airports Vanuatu Ltd, an aviation company that works closely with the government.After leaving Neil-Jones unconscious on the floor, Iauko went to editor Royson Willie and said to him: “Do you want me to break your face?”Neil-Jones has filed a complaint against the minister. Yesterday he said: “I can’t think of many countries where a minister of state would survive long if he marched into a national newspaper with a gang of thugs employed within the ministry and assaulted the publisher of a national daily paper because he didn’t like the valid criticism he was getting from all quarters, including the newspaper, members of the public through letters to the editor and Transparency International.”The publisher was previously attacked on 17 January 2009 by four police officers employed by the prison department. They were arrested but the investigation never established who was behind the attack.

Rodriguez, who just completed her freshman year at Berklee College of Music in Boston, was waiting to interview for a music production and marketing internship at the record company when Paul Ring, CEO and President, noticed her sitting in the lobby and struck up a conversation. Ring asked Rodriguez to sing for him on the spot. â€œI sampled different genres. I performed â€˜People Get Readyâ€™ by Curtis Mayfield, then I did some classical stuff,â€ Rodriguez said. By the time her interviewer was ready for her, Rodriguez was already discussing a record deal with Ring. â€œAfter I showed him what I could do, he said, â€˜I really donâ€™t want you to intern here. I only want you for a record deal. Youâ€™re not allowed to intern,â€™â€ Rodriguez recalled.Claire Rodriguez in Flintridge Sacred Heartâ€™s 2012 spring musical XANADU. She played the leading role of Kira.Since signing the contract with Bungalo Records, Rodriguez (who will go by the stage name â€œToniâ€) has been hard at work. â€œI met with the producers that Iâ€™m going to be recording with, as well as a songwriting team,â€ she said. Her producers include Grammy-award winners Adonis Shropshire, Kevin Wales and Nataraj Tribino. â€œI am working with such amazing people. I have to live up to their expectations, and I have to work really hard to do it,â€ Rodriguez said.However, no oneâ€”especially in the FSHA communityâ€”doubts her ability to succeed. â€œOnce you heard Claire sing, you knew she had amazing talent,â€ said Sister Carolyn McCormack, O.P., president of FSHA.During her four years at FSHA, Rodriguez participated in almost every musical opportunity at the school. She was a choir soloist and the lead vocalist of FSHAâ€™s band. Rodriguez also appeared in the school musical every year, including the 2011 production of Xanadu in which she played the lead role of Kira. â€œClaire was a passionate performer, dedicated and committed to her craft. Iâ€™m not surprised she got a record deal at 19 years old,â€ said Katy Sadler, former Assistant Principal at FSHA.Rodriguez also worked with FSHA Visual & Performing Arts Department Chair Ben Coria, who was â€œthrilledâ€ to find out about Rodriguezâ€™s recording deal. â€œSuccess in the music business is challenging, but I know thereâ€™s a place for her,â€ he said.Imelda Rodriguez, Claireâ€™s mother, credits FSHA for helping Rodriguez along her musical path. â€œFSHA is a big part of who she is now. The school harnessed her dream of using her God-given talent to be of service to others,â€ she said.And while this recording opportunity seems like the stuff of movies, Rodriguez wants to encourage students to think big. â€œKnow that no matter how farfetched your dreams are, itâ€™s really possible to achieve them,â€ she said. â€œIf you have the right attitude, if you work on yourself and if you have a really well-polished skill, then you can absolutely make it.â€You can listen to Claire Rodriguezâ€™s music at http://www.soundcloud.com/imnot-claire.For more information aboutÂ Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy (FSHA), visit www.fsha.org.

“Passing the bonds shows that the project is moving forward,” Deutschman said. “That would help in attracting private partners.” After years of lobbying, Antelope Valley officials were successful in getting the Rail Authority to plan the route between Bakersfield and Los Angeles through the high desert rather than along Interstate 5. The proposed Antelope Valley alignment would follow Highway 58 from Bakersfield to Mojave, then run south along the Union Pacific railroad tracks through Lancaster, Palmdale and Soledad Canyon and San Fernando Valley. Palmdale has spent nearly $600,000 studying and promoting the Antelope Valley route, which officials say would add just a few minutes to travel time but would serve 750,000 more residents than along Interstate 5. The officials also argued that the route would not require tunneling or raise as many environmental concerns as a rail line over the Grapevine.

However, there is a bill pending in the state Legislature to push that vote back to 2008. Assemblywoman Sharon Runner, R-Lancaster, said given the state’s bond indebtedness, the train system must be deferred in favor of other priorities. “We have some big issues with transportation and infrastructure,” Runner said. “We need to have safe highways to drive on.” Although the Rail Authority has not taken a formal position on such a delay, individual board members, including Donna Andrews and Joseph Petrillo, have spoken out against pushing back the vote, arguing that it would increase the project’s cost. Rail Authority spokeswoman Kris Deutschman said if the bond vote were to pass, there would still be several months before the bonds would be used. PALMDALE – A proposed high-speed rail system that would run through the Antelope and San Fernando valleys reached a milestone Wednesday with the approval of the project’s environmental study. Meeting in Sacramento, the California High-Speed Rail Authority board voted 6-0 to approve the environmental impact report for the 700-mile system running from San Diego to Sacramento. The next step will be a separate environmental study for the controversial corridor linking the San Francisco Bay to the Central Valley. Also to be done are more-detailed environmental studies for each segment of the system, looking at where stations would be built and where rail lines would actually be placed. At an estimated $37 billion, the system would be one of the most expensive public works projects in U.S. history.
Letterkenny University Hospital has opened 10 beds in the Short Stay Ward today, but the campaign for full capacity continues, according to Sinn Féin Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn.The Donegal Senator has given a cautious welcome to confirmation that half of the beds in Letterkenny’s 20 bed Short Stay Ward are reopening this Thursday.However, Mac Lochlainn has criticised the government for not fully delivering on their assurances last year. The Senator today challenged the Government to explain why they announced the reopening of all 20 Short Stay beds last October, only for the HSE to allocate funding for five beds and support staff.Senator Mac Lochlainn said: “Last year, Sinn Fein members across Donegal organised a petition that was signed by thousands of local people, calling for the reopening of Letterkenny Hospital’s 20-bed Short Stay Ward. Throughout 2017 and last year, there was an average of around 20 people every day on trolleys at the hospital and it was obvious to see, the huge difference the reopening of these beds and this ward would have on the trolley crisis.“The trolley crisis also pushed nurses, doctors and support staff at the hospital into relentlessly impossible working conditions.“Last October, local Government Minister, Joe McHugh announced the reopening of these beds and Fianna Fáil claimed that they had secured this under “confidence and supply”. While this was welcomed by the people of Donegal as overdue good news, it quickly became clear that these promises and political claims were not backed up with the money.” Senator Mac Lochlainn said he was shocked by party announcement on the reopening yesterday, adding:“After much further investigation, we learned earlier this year that the Government and the HSE had only released enough money to reopen 5 beds, much to the frustration of the Saolta Hospital Group and the management of Letterkenny Hospital. So the Saolta Hospital Group allocated enough extra resources to reopen 10 beds and they are to be commended for this.“But for the Government or Fianna Fáil to now welcome this is astounding. Their political claims last year after the budget have not materialised and for Sinn Féin and the people of Donegal, the campaign to reopen all of these beds continues.”Short Stay Ward campaign isn’t over at Letterkenny Hospital was last modified: June 6th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
In the era of digital transformation, IoT is fostering the forthcoming revolution in mobile apps. It is changing the way companies used to provide mobile app development services. Similar to mobile apps, applications of IoT are also emerging in almost every verticles. IoT has helped thousands of corporates to deliver extraordinary customer experiences by providing technological enhancements to existing mobile apps.Experts predict that IoT is going to become a more significant player in the mobile app development business than it is right now. Bain predicts that the market share of IoT is going to increase more than double in 2021 with a staggering $520 billion compared to 4 years back in 2017 with $235 billion. Shortly, IoT is going to drive the trends of mobile app development services providers used to follow. Below are the new trends we can expect in IoT enabled mobile apps.Enhancement in the Number of Connected DevicesThe number of connected devices in increasing day after day. According to Statista, the growth in the number of connected devices is growing exponentially. It predicts that there are going to be 75.44 billion connected devices in 2025 which is almost three times of the number of connected devices in 2019: 26.66 billion. Mobile apps are going to play a significant role in connected devices as a majority of the connected devices will be mobile phones itself. As the sales of smartphones are increasing the number of connected devices are also growing. Increase in InteroperabilityBack in the early ’90s, there was a lack of clarity about which protocols and standards should be used to create IoT systems as there were too many of them. Although, the number of communication protocols and standards have increased the standardization has also been done by several institutions.Standardization of protocols has helped mobile app development services providers to build IoT enabled mobile apps faster. Now, since the standardization has been done right, experts are trying to figure out how to create an IoT system which is compatible with both current and future standards. Once this is figured out, mobile app development services providers will be able to implement interoperability to its full capacity by merely integrating an API with their old IoT mobile app.App Security will IncreaseIoT has always been prone to hackers because of the confusion in standards and protocols. Now, as the standardization is done, companies are shifting their attention to enhance the security of IoT mobile apps. Endpoints in any IoT network are the most vulnerable points to get hacked. With the increase in data security breaches and cybercrime, the opportunities for IoT mobile app development services providers are also increasing. Some of the custom app development companies have already changed their business model from developing apps to securing IoT mobile apps made by themselves as well as other development firms.Data-driven Mobile App DevelopmentData is at the core of IoT. Connected devices produce a lot of data. We can also make them handle data coming from other sources. For example, ERP and CRM integrated enterprise apps generate a lot of data which is very important to organize. Connected devices will perform various actions that will organize data in such a way that it’ll start making sense and help enterprises to make better organizational decisions.As the enterprise mobile apps will get better the necessity of creating an enterprise app will also increase. And hence, the concept of data-driven mobile app development will predominate. Artificial Intelligence and IoTArtificial intelligence has become a thriving technology. A technology that has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. Same is the case with IoT. Both IoT and AI are data-driven technologies. They both deal with a lot of data. Both technologies are used to store and analyze data. Integrating IoT and AI will help us gain better and accurate insights into various services. Bringing AI and IoT together will make the process of automation more efficient. Machine Learning is Going to RuleSimilar to AI, Machine Learning, is yet another facilitator of automation. Machine Learning is widely used in Chatbots and Voice Bots. It has helped a lot of enterprises and startups to connect with their customers 24/7 without any human intervention. Using Apple’s Core ML and Google’s ML Kit we can create apps that’ll make connected devices smarter and more efficient in finishing various tasks.The reason why AI and ML are going to rule the world is that they help us not only to remain in touch with the world all the time but also, improves productivity in to do our routine tasks. They have helped to automate a majority of the human tasks in various industries. Consumer-centric Industrial IoT will prevailIoT mobile app development services providers are evolving to deliver customer-centric IoT mobile applications. These apps will place a consumer in the center of everything. Entrepreneurs are implementing consumer IoT in the workplace to increase the productivity of the employees. The concept of consumer IoT is also aiding the smart city program running in various countries. This program aims to make the lives of people simpler and make our cities more energy efficient.Integration of IoT in Crypto-currencyIt is evident that IoT is pretty good at handling data. So, it’s high time now that we merge two of the most popular emerging technologies: IoT and Blockchain. The reason why we need to integrate IoT and Blockchain is that it will solve the longest running problem of security in connected devices. The high-security protocols of Blockchain will help govern the communication of data in various connected devices. AR, VR and Connected DevicesAR and VR have become two of the most popular technologies in the corporate world right now. The applications of AR and VR are widespread. We combined both the technologies and created Mixed Reality. How about connecting both of them with IoT? Doing so will help us achieve a new feat in automation. Smart connected devices will be able to deliver immersive experiences to the users. IoT and AR/VR will open new possibilities for enterprises to attract customers by arranging various marketing events and consumer-facing sessions. The Rise of Industry Independent IoT Mobile App DevelopmentEarlier when IoT wasn’t a buzzword, its applications were limited to specific industries. Since its inception, IoT was limited to a few sectors such as consumer retail and aerospace and armed forces. The first consumer-facing application of IoT was designed by John Romkey who turned a toaster on and off using the Internet with TCP/IP networking. Today, if we look at the applications of IoT, we can see that they are not only spread across various verticals but also connected across industries. Enterprises are leveraging this inter-industrial IoT to deliver excellent consumer experiences, streamline supply-chain management and simplify tasks for employees. The applications of IoT in businesses is going to increase with time.Efficient Mobile App DevelopmentAs we all know that “Automation” is the pseudonym for IoT. It has helped a plethora of companies and individuals to simplify various tasks. The lesser known fact is that it also helps mobile app developers to reduce development time. It means that the enterprises looking to develop apps from IoT mobile app development services providers will be able to spend less than their estimated amount. IoT helps developers to reduce development time by reducing their effort to test the app created by them. Developers can utilize the extra time to build more apps or enhance features in the existing apps.Deliver Personalized User ExperienceThe data collected using IoT networks can be used to deliver personalized experiences to users of a particular mobile app. As seen earlier, machine learning and IoT helps us to create smart apps. These apps can learn by themselves. So, as a user will use the app, it’ll get more intelligent and will be able to deliver personalized user experiences. The more an app will be used more personalized it will get over time. Efficacy of Apps will IncreaseIn today’s world, mobile app development services providers are in a constant worry about the robustness of the app they had developed. Mobile apps need upgrade and support for application even after the deployment. If apps do not get required support post-launch, then the apps might become device dependent. It means that it’ll run only on old devices and operating systems.IoT helps mobile app development services providers to connect their app with other devices that’ll provide support to their app. This way IoT will help existing mobile apps to increase their adaptability and efficacy. The Rise of Developers with Enhanced SkillsIoT is a booming concept in today’s world. The requirement of IoT mobile app development services providers and developers will increase in the upcoming years. But, as the technology is spreading not only horizontally but also vertically, we’ll need specialized developers who will have in-depth knowledge of a specific domain in IoT mobile app development. This will require the existing IoT mobile app developers to learn new skills and possibly new languages as well.ConclusionIoT has great potential to bring revolutionary changes in current mobile app development trends. It is going to open up immense possibilities for everyone related to this field. Whether it is a mobile app development services provider or it is a product based firm or an enterprise. Directly or Indirectly, IoT is going to drive the future of all industries, businesses, and individuals.

Physicality goes away. Technicality stays with you.”Nottingham Forest keeper Luke Steele denied Fabregas the perfect send off when he kept out the former Arsenal man’s spot-kick.Fabregas added: “I saw the keeper going down in the middle of the run and I thought I had it. It was unfortunate.”The day I got 100 caps for Spain I also missed a penalty, so it was destiny.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Melbourne: Former captain Ricky Ponting feels constant scrutiny on Steve Smith and David Warner following their comeback could be “unsettling” for the Australian team during the World Cup in the United Kingdom. Ponting, who will be part of Australia’s support staff during the mega event, said Smith and Warner will have to be prepared for constant criticism from the UK crowd. Their two-year ban for ball-tampering ends later this month and they will feature in the IPL beginning March 23.

You’d like to think that those guys are having conversations now, so they’re not leaving it to the last minute and just be exposed to this thing that could be derailing to a team,” Ponting told cricket.com.au. “I’m sure this would have been talked about at a higher level for a long time – how do we integrate them back in? How do they fit in? How is it all going to be seamless? But the hardest part for those guys is going to be the public perception of us, especially in England,” said the two-time World Cup winning captain. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian OpenConstant attention on Smith and Warner could affect the team during the World Cup, said Ponting. They’re coming back into a World Cup in the UK – they shouldn’t be expecting too many pats on the back over there. They’re going to cop it everywhere they go. They’ve got to know that, they’ve got to accept that and understand that. “The team needs to as well, because that could also be something that could be unsettling for a team.” Australia go into the World Cup as defending champions but this time, they don’t go enter the tournament as outright favourites. Ponting feels things could get a lot easier for Warner and Smith if they are amongst the runs. “I think they are well equipped (to handle the scrutiny), but I think it could be a shock for them by the same token when they come back. They have to expect the absolute worst and then anything better than that is going to be a bonus for them. That would be the way I would approach it if I was them.
Washington: US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the recent arrest of a woman who allegedly breached security at President Donald Trump’s private Florida club while carrying Chinese passports and a flash drive containing malware, is an example of the threat Beijing poses to Washington. In a TV interview on Friday, Pompeo declined to provide additional details related to his claim but said: “I think this tells the American people the threat that China poses, the efforts they’re making inside the US, not only against government officials but more broadly.” CNN reported on Wednesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had begun investigating the possibility that the incident at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property was an espionage effort. The US official who confirmed the espionage probe said the FBI is doing what it has to do in these circumstances, when there is a foreign national involved and a possibility of counterintelligence or cyber-security issues. Earlier this week, Trump dismissed concerns about the incident when asked about potential Chinese espionage. Hedescribed it a “fluke situation,” praising both the Secret Service and the receptionist who stopped the accused, Yujing Zhang. Zhang was charged with making false statements to a federal officer and entering a restricted area on Monday. A detention hearing is scheduled for April 8 and arraignment for April 15. While investigators have not yet revealed conclusive evidence suggesting a link to Chinese espionage, the breach has highlighted long-brewing concerns about security at Mar-a-Lago. The club allows members, their guests and people attending events to enter and move around, even as Trump makes frequent visits to the property.
