Trash Collection Delays in Marrakech Spark Health Concerns

Marrakech – Over the last few weeks, large piles of unsightly rubbish have been accumulating in areas of Marrakech giving rise to concerns about public health in the extreme heat as trash collection is delayed while temperatures have soared into the 90s.Longs delays in trash collection are not normal in Marrakech, and the Moroccan authorities have made serious efforts to have regular rubbish collections. The problem seems to be due to a change of contractor from Techmed.Rubbish collection is a serious and difficult issue everywhere in the world. In London, private companies are now advertising trash removal services because local authorities are overwhelmed and bureaucratically stagnant. Urban trash, even with local landfills and incinerator plants, is a major challenge for most urban centers worldwide. One of the difficulties in managing trash is that it needs to be sorted.In Morocco, men with donkey carts, who rummage through the rubbish and remove recyclable materials, perform an important part in sorting the trash. However, the rubbish taken out of the bins typically is never put back in. Sometimes perhaps there are not enough bins.Individual citizens need to be responsible for how they dispose of their rubbish as well. Throwing it in plastic bags by the side of the street so that it builds into mounds of rubbish degrades the environment and is unsightly.Marrakech public buses have screens and show a jolly cartoon of a family who make it their mission to clean up trash in the streets and encourage drivers to service their vehicles so that the streets are not filled with fumes. They also clean up debris on the beaches.So the local administration in the red city is trying to raise the citizens’ awareness of the rubbish issue but it obviously is going to take time and effort. Plastic bags are a major cause of environmental pollution and are banned in many countries.Today new road sweepers are working in red and orange uniforms and new bins are being positioned on the streets so the mounds of rotting rubbish will hopefully soon be cleared up. read more

António Guterres set to be sworn in as next UN SecretaryGeneral

Mr. Guterres, 67, was Prime Minister of Portugal from 1995 to 2002, and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees from June 2005 to December 2015. He will become the world’s top diplomat on 1 January 2017, and hold that post for the next five years.He was formally appointed by the General Assembly on 13 October in what was the culmination of an historic process Member States set in motion late last year: the selection of a new United Nations Secretary-General, traditionally decided behind closed-doors by a few powerful countries, for the first time in history, involved public discussions with each candidate campaigning for the Organization’s ninth chief.These so-called ‘informal briefings’ between the candidates, UN Member States and civil society representatives kicked off on 12 April, when the first three candidates presented their ‘vision statements’ and answered questions on how they would promote sustainable development, improve efforts to create peace, protect human rights, and deal with huge humanitarian catastrophes should they be selected to lead the Organization.In October, thanking the Assembly for appointing him as the next Secretary-General, Mr. Guterres said he was grateful to the Member States for their trust in him as well as for the transparent and open selection process they undertook.“I believe this process means that the true winner today is the credibility of the UN. And it also made very clear to me that, as Secretary-General, having been chosen by all Member States, I must be at the service of them all equally and with no agenda but the one enshrined in the UN Charter,” added.Tomorrow’s ceremony, at which Mr. Guterres will take the oath of office, will also see the 193-member General Assembly pay tribute to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for his exceptional contribution to the work of the Organization over the past decade.On 12 December 2016, António Guterres will be sworn in as the next UN Secretary-General. In his vision for the post, Mr. Guterres – a former Prime Minister of Portugal and UN High Commissioner for Refugees – has said that the world body is uniquely placed to connect the dots to overcome global challenges and further strengthen the nexus between peace and security, sustainable development and human rights policies. read more

Piers Morgan and others weigh in on dress code debate should women

first_imgPeople on social media have been debating whether women should have to wear high heels and make-up at work, after a report by MPs found that businesses are leaving women in pain by enforcing discriminatory dress codes.While some say it is important to look smart, and that women in certain jobs should have to do so by wearing high heels and make-up, others say such a stance is discriminatory and point out that men don’t have to wear similarly restrictive clothing. Piers Morgan has been among those to weigh in on the report, which was commissioned after a London receptionist, Nicola Thorp,  went to the press after being fired from a temporary job last year for not wearing high heels, which she said were painful.Her parliamentary petition on the issue gained more than 150,000 signatures.Morgan was accused of sexism by social media users after the daytime television host said he “likes women to wear high heels at work”.Here’s how social media has reacted to the news.Piers Morgan said he likes women to wear high heels at work No enforced dress code on @Commonswomequ-it’s just we all like red jackets except @jessphillips ! @FlickD @lucyallan pic.twitter.com/kiAG6QDXlU— Maria_Miller (@Maria_MillerMP) January 25, 2017 The Women and Equalities Select Committee weighed in My footwear today @LadybridgeHigh Strong Safe and Resilient project day. #dresscode #noheels pic.twitter.com/kXpchav8Ny— Julie Tweedale (@FpsJulie) January 25, 2017  What do you think?

Sean Mercer Profile of Liverpool gang member who shot and killed Rhys

first_imgOn the day of the murder Mercer, then 16, was subject to an Asbo (anti-social behaviour order), imposed because he and some of his friends – including one referred to only as Boy K previously but who can now be named as Dean Kelly, 17 – had been terrorising staff at a local sports centre.At one stage they threatened to set fire to a security guard’s jacket and to “get a knife”.The previous year Mercer had been convicted of possessing a CS gas canister police had found in his home. Eight months after killing Rhys he was caught with cannabis and given a three-month conditional discharge.The scrawny killer, nicknamed Beaver, had joined the gang in his early teens, but was beginning to rise rapidly through the ranks. Local sources suggest the killer had played a prominent role in the attacks on Brady. However, police were never able to prove this was so.They learned only after his arrest that two months before Rhys’s murder he had ridden through Norris Green on a motorbike, waving a gun as he chased a group of Nogga Dogs.Mercer stuck to the gangsters’ code of silence when detectives arrested him, and in court, too, he refused to speak beyond entering his plea of not guilty.But beyond the bravado, he will never shake off the fear that gripped him the day a crucial witness refused point-blank to support his alibi. Police knew enough about him to realise he had the potential to become a major player, but until the murder he was just another young thug to keep an eye on. Show more Brady, 20, had been shot at twice before by his gangland rivals, but despite this had strayed onto their “turf” the day Rhys died. Teenage gunman Mercer was found guilty at Liverpool Crown Court of the murder of schoolboy Rhys Jones, 11 Teenage gunman Mercer was found guilty at Liverpool Crown Court of the murder of schoolboy Rhys Jones, 11Credit:PA Officers used anti-social behaviour powers to stop him in the street no less than 80 times between the ages of 14 and 16. On 15 of these occasions he was with two Croccy Head leaders who were later jailed for the murder of a Nogga Dog.His main ally within the gang appears to have been Boy K, the pair of them generally referred to in MSN chatrooms as The Boys.Detectives are still unclear about Mercer’s motive for opening fire that day – not least because the killer has always refused to speak to them.However, the shooting is most likely to have been “a rite of passage”, in which Mercer seized the opportunity to “prove” himself to his fellow gangsters and the younger wannabes who hung around them.There was, though, a secondary motive: the long-standing personal grudge Mercer harboured against Wayne Brady, a prominent member of the rival Nogga Dogs gang.This went back to the days they shared at De La Salle Secondary School, but was compounded by the fact that Brady had been dating Vicki Smart, a model and one-time Miss England contestant, who lived near Mercer’s home in Croxteth.In Mercer’s mind Miss Smart, now 19, should have been out of bounds to a Nogga Dog, and it was well known among his gang that one day he was “gonna get” his rival.

The murderer of Rhys Jones, Sean Mercer, was a convict stopped more than 80 times on the street by police, and on an Asbo on the day he killed the 11-year-old.He had intended to shoot a rival gang member and, if he had succeeded, Mercer might have been propelled into the transient folklore of Liverpool’s notorious gang culture.Instead, one of three bullets he fired at two rival gangsters killed Rhys Jones and condemned Mercer himself to the level of notoriety that not even he could have imagined.He would say later that he saw “a kid go down”, but he didn’t care. All he cared about was saving his own skin. He and his gang tried to destroy the evidence against him, and they struck fear into the minds of those they involved in the cover-up. The shooting is most likely to have been ‘a rite of passage’, in which Mercer seized the opportunity to prove himself to his fellow gangsterslast_img read more

Chrome OS goes beta RTM next month

first_imgDuring Google I/O 2011, the company confirmed the then-Developer channel Chrome OS would ultimately be the version shipping in June on the first Chromebooks from Acer and Samsung. Now that I/O has wrapped and the June 15th launch date is rapidly approaching, the time had come for Google to push the release one step closer to RTM. Yesterday, the Chrome Releases blog announced that the beta channel had been bumped and was now utilizing the R12 code.A number of expected pre-release changes have been made to Chrome OS, with Google’s team devoting plenty of time to polishing up the user interface and making things look consistent. An improved file browser has been added, the internal Flash plug-in updated, and new power optimizations will help users squeeze a few more minutes of life out of their Chromebook batteries.AdChoices广告Chrome OS’ wireless connectivity features have also been tweaked, with some Verizon-specific activation issues being addressed and more trouble-free out-of-the-box Wi-Fi and 3G hook-ups. VPN support has also arrived — which will play an important role in Chrome OS adoption in the enterprise. The Google Talk plug-in now offers better voice and video performance, the Chrome OS update mechanism is running more smoothly, and retouched OSD indicators for screen brightness and network and update status have been introduced.But one change in particular will be particularly welcome for users of Google’s original Cr-48 Chromebook. The touchpad — which has frustrated users from the very beginning of the pilot program — has finally been addressed in the new update.More at Chrome Releaseslast_img read more

Grant helps Clark College students pay for child care

first_imgKatherine Shafer’s sons hurtled into the Clark College child care facility on a recent Wednesday morning, eager to show their toys to the staff at the campus-within-a-campus.Shafer, 31, walked in behind 5-year-old Elijah and 3-year-old Aiden, a tired smile on her face.Wednesdays aren’t so bad for Shafer. Usually they’re filled with appointments, school work and classes in the evening. Of course, “not so bad” is relative when you’re a single mother of three young boys — 7-year-old Jeremiah is in grade school — pursuing a college degree.It’s parents like Shafer that Clark College is targeting with a $487,200 grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The four-year Child Care Access Means Parents in School grant, or CCAMPIS, will cover the costs of child care for low-income college students. College officials estimate the grant could save enrolled families between $15 and $1,300 a month, depending on how much they’re currently paying.“It’s food. It’s new shoes. It’s clothes,” said Shafer of the money she’ll save due to the grant. She’s among the approximately 50 people to receive the funding.Child care in Washington and across the country is expensive and hard to find. According to Child Care Aware of Washington, the median cost of child care at center-based programs ranges from $888 to $1,235, depending on the child’s age. At family-based centers, that range drops to $650 to $758, but there are fewer licensed home care providers.last_img read more

Stocks post best month in 4 years aided by favourable monetary policies

first_imgOil gained on Friday while stocks on Wall Street closed lower even as major US and European stock indices posted their best month in at least four years, boosted in part by accommodative monetary policies in the euro zone and Japan.Oil prices rose after the US oil rig count fell for a ninth straight week, indicating potentially lower crude output in coming months in the face of a global supply glut.The dollar slipped after data showing US consumer spending in September recorded its smallest gain in eight months as personal income barely rose, suggesting some cooling in domestic demand after recent hefty increases.European shares closed slightly higher, with the pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index.FTEU3 up 0.01% at 1,484.46, while the euro zone’s blue-chip Euro STOXX 50 index .STOXX50E rose 0.14% to 3,418.23. The two indices posted their best monthly gains in more than six years.Financial stocks led the decline on Wall Street as falling prices accelerated at the close. Traders had focused on heavy sell orders posted for the close, said Ken Polcari, director of the NYSE floor division at O’Neil Securities in New York.The Dow Jones industrial average .DJI closed down 92.26 points, or 0.52%, to 17,663.54. The S&P 500 .SPX fell 10.05 points, or 0.48%, to 2,079.36 and the Nasdaq Composite .IXIC lost 20.53 points, or 0.4%, to 5,053.75.”The burning question on everybody’s lips is very simply, what is going to happen at the end of the year, are we going to get the Santa Claus rally?” said Andrew Wilkinson, chief market strategist at Interactive Brokers LLC in Greenwich, Connecticut.Investors have taken in stride indications that the US Federal Reserve will raise interest rates in December, and worries about slowing Chinese growth have subsided, he said.”There are no barbarians at the gate at this moment. Everything seems to have calmed, volatility has come down, people seem to comprehend what the Fed is about to do and they got a greater sense of how deep the Chinese problems are,” he said.The CBOE Volatility index .VIX fell 38.5% in October, its biggest monthly drop on record.Energy majors Exxon (XOM.N) and Chevron (CVX.N) reported better-than-expected results, helped by strong refining margins. Exxon rose 0.6 percent to $82.74 and Chevron was up 1.1 percent to $90.88. Chevron was the biggest boost to the Dow, and Exxon was the third-largest.US Treasuries prices rose, with benchmark yields retreating from one-month peaks as soft domestic and overseas data renewed traders’ focus on tepid global growth. Month-end buying boosted longer-dated Treasuries prices.Some investors added US bonds back to their holdings on expectations of further bond-buying stimulus from the European Central Bank and the Bank of Japan to combat deflation.Brent, the global benchmark for oil, settled 76 cents higher at $49.56 a barrel.

Howdy Modi PM to address Indian community in Texas on September 22

first_img“Howdy, Modi!” is what Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be greeted with when he reaches Houston, Texas, for his address to the Indian community next month. Houston is one of the biggest regions with Indian-American population in the US. There are five lakh people of Indian-origin in Texas.Modi’s speech will be the third major speech he will give in the US since he became the PM in 2014 and the first speech in the country after his re-election.

eBay Made Easy

first_imgDon’t dawdle.Jim “Griff” Griffith, author of The eBay Bibleand dean of eBay Education, says many new sellers feel overwhelmed at first. “A lot of new sellers spend too much time studying the site, and that’s a mistake, as you can easily get hung up on ‘paralysis by analysis,'” he says. Griff advises you to start small and slow, research the market on eBay, and then put one item up to get started. “If you do it methodically and slowly, you can list your first item in an hour or so and be up and running.”For more ideas on where to find product sources, visit our Sourcing Productsarea. Step 3: Manage the Auction ProcessThere are several types of eBay auctions. In a basic auction, you post your item with a starting price and wait for bidders to drive the price up until a closing time, which can be three, five, seven or 10 days later, when the auction ends. You are then obligated to sell to the highest bidder. 13 min read Legal and Tax Tips for eBay SellersWhen you sell on eBay, you’re subject to most all federal and state laws, taxes and rules that apply to retail businesses generally. Here are some tips to help you stay out of trouble on eBay:1. Set yourself up as a legal business.Get federal and state tax ID numbers for your business, as well as any licenses and permits your state requires for you to sell your merchandise. If you’re using a trade name, register it with your city, town or county clerk’s office as your state law requires.2. Register for your state’s sales taxes.If the winning bidder is a resident of your state, you’ll have to pay sales tax on the bid amount. Put the following statement on all eBay auction pages: “Residents of State X [your state] must add ___% sales tax to their winning bid.”3. Sell only legitimate merchandise.If a random street vendor offers you a shipment of “genuine Rolex watches,” watch out. Competing eBay sellers offering Rolex watches and Rolex itself can report you to eBay for selling illegal knockoffs, and eBay will cancel your auctions. Find out if the stuff you’re planning to buy is legitimate by visiting eBay’s Verified Rights Owner program.4. Resist the temptation to “shill.”If you (or a friend or relative) are ever tempted to bid against legitimate bidders in an attempt to drive up the price of your products (an illegal practice called “shilling”), think twice. Not only will eBay’s fraud department shut you down permanently if they catch you, but many state attorneys general are bringing criminal charges against flagrant offenders, with eBay’s cooperation. About Me:A free page that enables you to describe your business and any relevant information that would make buyers feel more comfortable buying from you. Register Now » Step 2: Find Stuff to SellThis can be the biggest challenge in setting up an eBay business. Keep these points in mind: You can also set a reserve price, which is a hidden minimum price that is the lowest amount you’re willing to accept. Buyers are not shown the reserve price, and if it is not met, you are not obligated to sell the item.If you have two or more identical items for sale, you can post them in the same auction by using a Dutch (or Multiple Item) Auction.If you don’t like auctions, eBay also has a “Buy It Now” feature that gives bidders the option to buy your item immediately for a set price. Or you can choose a fixed-price listing, which simply puts the item up for sale at a set price, with no bidding allowed.To sell on eBay, you’ll pay a listing fee to post your merchandise and a final value fee (a small percentage of the sale price) when the item sells. These fees change from time to time, so be sure to check the eBay site to make sure you can pay all the fees and still make a profit.A number of books offer advice on reducing the amount of time and effort necessary to create eBay auction pages, such as Marsha Collier’s eBay Timesaving Techniques For Dummies, Janelle Elms’ eBay Your Businessand Joseph T. Sinclair’s eBay Business the Smart Way. Entrepreneur magazine’s Startup Guide #1824, How to Start a Business on eBay, is available at www.smallbizbooks.com.Software can also help you streamline the auction management process. Listing programs, such as Turbo-Lister (available for free from eBay) and Zdrop, enable you to create multiple auction pages on your PC and upload them as a “batch” to eBay. Full-service auction-management programs like Auction-Helperand Zoovyhandle almost everything, from inventory management to label printing. May 1, 2005 Step 4: Provide Great Customer ServiceBuyers will ask you questions about your merchandise, and if you don’t respond promptly, they won’t bid. Top-notch service also means shipping your goods to the winning buyer within two to three days after the auction closes, or as soon as you receive payment.When an eBay auction is completed, the goods shipped and payment made, you and your buyer can comment on each other in eBay’s Feedback Forum. Buyers rely on the Feedback Forum to determine how reliable a seller is. But watch out: If buyers aren’t happy with your customer service or your merchandise, they will post negative or neutral feedback. Many buyers will not deal with a seller who has less than a specified number of positive feedback postings in the forum, or a seller who has too many negative feedback postings.Unfortunately, some customers will threaten to leave negative feedback if you don’t do what they want, even if they are being unreasonable. Most of the time, you’re best advised to meet their demands because “the customer is always right,” and because you want to avoid negative feedback on eBay at all costs.In cases where a buyer posts negative feedback that is inaccurate or unfair, eBay affords you a limited opportunity to respond to the negative posting and tell buyers your side of the story. In extreme cases, eBay’s SquareTrade service helps mediate disputes between eBay buyers and sellers. Step 5: Build a Brand on eBayOn eBay, sellers are offered a number of tools to help establish their brand identities, including: Customizing Tools:A number of features (accessible from your “My eBay” page) that enable you to make your pages stand out from others offering similar merchandise.Like any marketplace, eBay is constantly changing. “A lot of people get set in a comfort zone, especially if they have an initial rush of success,” says Griff. “If you get to the point that you really feel comfortable you know what you’re doing on eBay, I guarantee you there’s a brick flying at the side of your head at 80 miles an hour that you’re not seeing because you’re not looking in that direction.”You can expect pricing and demand on eBay to change over time. As more and more people start operating on eBay, competition will increase and prices may decline slightly. Still, keep in mind that eBay has reached only a small fraction of its potential worldwide market. And it will continue to grow even faster as internet access becomes more readily available world-wide. “EBay is the leader in internet auctions,” says Morphy. “It has such a strong hold on the market and such a huge following, you can’t beat it.” Learn how to pack and ship goods.Calculating shipping costs properly is also important. To help you with this, eBay, FedEx, UPS and the U.S. Postal Service all offer shipping calculators on their websites. Buyers really hate it if they think you’re gouging them on the shipping and handling fees. Pick the right product.Select something you’ll enjoy selling and that stands a good chance of making a profit. Avoid merchandise you know absolutely nothing about, that’s difficult to describe in a short paragraph, that won’t photograph well or that’s tricky to ship without damage. Sell related merchandise.”If you make it easy for people to buy something, they will want to buy more from you–and you have to have related merchandise in stock,” advises Cash. “So, for example, if you’re selling collectibles, you should also carry the display racks, books and other accessories those particular collectors will want to have.” Customer Service and Branding eBay Stores: A virtual storefront that puts all of your current auctions together in one place, so buyers can see everything you’re selling at a glance. You’ll pay a monthly fee based on the level of store services you want, plus additional fees for items listed and sold. Consider cost and sale price.”Buyers and sellers on eBay set the price–you don’t,” says Melissa Sands, 35, who started selling on eBay in 1999 to help her husband, a comic-book dealer, get rid of excess inventory. Today, Sands runs Sands-o-Time, an eBay store selling pottery, porcelain, glass, silver, costume jewelry and more with sales averaging $8,000 to $12,000 per month.

At any given time, 29 million items are available worldwide on eBay, with more than 3.5 million new items added every day and $1,000 worth of merchandise sold every second. The online auction site has 135 million registered users in 32 international markets, and more than 430,000 people in the United States alone make a full- or part-time living on eBay.If you think eBay is just about bobblehead dolls and Pez dispensers, think again. While $2.2 billion worth of goods in collectibles were sold on eBay in 2004, antiques and collectibles ranked only No. 6 among eBay’s sales categories. The five highest were: automobiles and auto supplies ($11.1 billion); consumer electronics ($3.5 billion); computers ($3.0 billion); clothes and accessories ($2.9 billion); and books, movies and music ($2.4 billion).Real people are making big bucks on eBay–and thousands have even reached PowerSeller status by maintaining at least $1,000 per month in sales for three consecutive months. Case in point: Angie Cash, 37, a stay-at-home mom who started selling on eBay nearly six years ago because it was “something I could do and watch the kids at the same time.” Today, her Kennesaw, Georgia, company, Cashco1000 Inc., sells thousands of home-decoration and other items each month on eBay and expects to break $500,000 in sales on eBay this year.Even owners of existing businesses have found success on eBay by using it as an adjunct to their brick-and-mortar operations. Dan Morphy, 33, runs the Adamstown Antique Gallery, a 10,000-square-foot antiques mall in Denver, Pennsylvania. After a few successful eBay auctions, he started offering the antiques vendors who rent space in his gallery the opportunity to sell five items a month on eBay, at no charge other than out-of-pocket expenses. Within two years, Morphy not only had a full gallery of dealers, but was also listing 700 pieces a month and had exceeded $2.5 million in eBay sales.If you dream of building your own eBay business, it’s easier than you think. We’ve distilled what you need to know into five basic steps. Step 1: Register Your BusinessGetting set up as an eBay seller is a simple process that takes just a few minutes. You’ll be required to provide your name, address, e-mail and phone number, as well as a credit card number and your checking account information. This information is used to confirm your identity–which protects the integrity of eBay’s operation–and to collect auction fees.Since every eBay business is a retail business, you should also register your business with federal, state and local tax authorities and consider forming a corporation or an LLC to protect you against legal liability.

The Flash Games Preservation project Flashpoint

first_imgThe Flash Games Preservation project Flashpoint by Martin Brinkmann on August 28, 2018 in Games – 17 commentsAdobe Flash will be retired in 2020 and browser makers such as Google, Mozilla or Microsoft started to phase out Flash support already in the browsers they create.Think of Flash what you want but the technology was used to create a number of impressive games. Problem is, if no modern browser supports Flash, no one can play those games anymore unless they use browsers that still support it or find other ways to preserve the games and play them.Even if browsers still support Flash, Flash itself will not be updated anymore and any security vulnerability found will remain unpatched.It is possible that Flash content will be removed on many sites once Flash is gone for good; this would mean that many Flash games would be lost forever.The Flash Games preservation projectThe Flash Games preservation project is an attempt to preserve Flash games so that they remain available and playable.The project is huge; the current full distribution of Flashpoint has a size of 31 Gigabytes. You can download a smaller collection with a size of just 2.2 Gigabytes if you prefer. The main difference between the two is that Infinity is configured to download Flash games that you select from Archive.org. The upside to this is that you won’t have to download more than 30 Gigabytes of Flash files directly before you can start playing games.The main downside is that it takes longer on first start to play games as they have to be downloaded first to the local system. Also, some games won’t work with Infinity and are not displayed because of this.The project maintains a Game Master List that is updated regularly. The current full version comes with more than 4000 games including many classic games. The developer has more than 2 Terabyte of Flash dumps on Google Drive from sites such as Gamepilot, JayIsGames, Newsgrounds, Kongregate, Armorgames, or NotDoppler.Some Flash games can be saved to the local system and run from there without any issues provided that a browser or the standalone Adobe Flash projector is used for that. Others won’t run because they rely on servers or have DRM baked into them which prevents local playback without modification.The project uses the interface of LaunchBox and Apache web server capabilities to provide access to Flash games on Windows.The launcher displays the list of games that are available, and users may click on any to look them up, and on play to start the game locally.The distribution takes care of DRM, sitelocked games, games that have server requirements, and games that require external files. The developer and volunteers test games, download required external components, and hack the games if required so that they will run on the local system.Flashpoint requires Windows 7 or newer versions of Windows. It does require the .NET Framework 4.7 and a Visual C++ redistributable. You find copies of those in the arcade folder after you have unpacked the package on the local system.Linux users may run Flashpoint as well. Instructions are found in the readme.txt file that is included in the distribution.How Flashpoint worksFlashpoint changes the system proxy while it is running; this is required to get games to run that are locked, with DRM, or have dependencies that are not locally available.You can run the custom redirector or the Fiddler redirector. The main difference between the two is that Fiddler is more reliable but also more interfering with network traffic while Flashpoint is running.The developer suggests that no mission critical networking operations are run while Flashpoint is running.Note that this will do certain things to your network traffic while Flashpoint is open, and while we maintain that we do not use this proxy or your network traffic for any kind of nefarious purpose, and we do believe that network traffic should remain relatively normal while Flashpoint is open, we do recommend that you do not do any sort of ‘mission critical’ networking while you’re running Flashpoint, and if you do use a system proxy on the computer you plan to use Flashpoint on, we recommend making a copy of your settings somewhere in case something goes wrong.The way things are set up can be cause for concern. If you are concerned, consider running Flashpoint in a virtual machine on the system or a spare PC if you have one.Games are listed with screenshots and information; very useful. A quick test of the Infinity edition was completely positive. I played several games, and while it took a while before downloads completed, playing them worked fine and without any issues.Closing WordsWith hundreds of thousands of Flash games around on the Internet, and 2 Terabyte of data sitting on the author’s Google Drive account, it is clear that Flashpoint is a massive project that will take a long time before the majority of games have been included.The project offers an excellent option for gamers to play classic Flash games even after the technology has been put to rest finally.Now You: Do you play online games?SummaryArticle NameFlashpointDescriptionThe Flash Preservation project Flashpoint created a solution to play thousands of Flash games on Windows and Linux machines after Flash’s retirement.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Matt Scott QB – 62 213 lbs I have broken down

first_imgMatt Scott, QB – 6-2, 213 lbsI have broken down Scott in an extended look and have told you I don’t think he’s worthy of a draft pick higher than a fourth rounder. But the reality is his blend of athleticism, arm talent, and the trend towards read-option football could have Scott moving into a late day two selection.Scott isn’t a guy I see making a contribution in 2013 wherever he is drafted, unless it is necessitated by injuries. But he has the talent, if given time to develop it, to make an impact in the league.Best Fits: Philadelphia Eagles, Jacksonville Jaguars, Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ersDan Buckner, WR – 6-4, 212 lbsIn what can only be considered a disappointing season for Buckner, the Wildcat wide receiver never took the next step to replace the departed Juron Criner.While Buckner produced good stats for the Wildcats opposite Austin Hill, he left many scratching their heads and moving him down and maybe out of draft day consideration.Buckner’s saving grace may be that he showed well at his pro day, until the last ten yards of his forty-yard dash where he pulled up with an apparent hamstring injury. Nick Foles may have started a trend down in Tucson. Maybe the University of Arizona is the new “Quarterback U” — or maybe Mike Stoops did one thing right in finding talented quarterbacks.While the Wildcats are not quite churning out top end prospects year after year, they are developing a reputation for producing quality talent that can make it at the next level.This year is no different, as we know about the big name in quarterback Matt Scott. Some services are even speculating he could go in the same range that Nick Foles did in 2012, but there are two other Wildcats that could hear their names called during the 2013 NFL Draft. The senior receiver shows a good catch radius, routinely making plays on balls thrown behind him, or somehow over his head, and displays good hands when catching the ball.He isn’t a big threat after the catch and he doesn’t create a lot of separation in his routes. But if he can find a quarterback that trusts him when he is covered, he could make a roster at the next level.Best Fits: Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, Carolina PanthersTaimi Tutogi, FB – 6-1, 269 lbsWhile the NFL moves away from the power run game, the fullback position seems to be going the way of the dinosaur. That would normally be a bad thing for a guy like Tutogi, the massive fullback for the Wildcats.The funny thing is, blocking may be the worst aspect of Tutogi’s game right now. His ability to line up at multiple positions and be a receiving threat is what will have teams enamored with him.Tutogi looks like he could line up as a FB, H-Back, or maybe even a TE at the next level, and get out in routes and make plays.He isn’t an overly athletic player, but runs with a mean streak and always keeps his feet moving.If Tutogi can learn to block, he could become a nice weapon at the NFL level as well as a special teams contributor. Comments   Share   While these are the only three prospects I see having a chance to be drafted, that doesn’t mean they are the only Wildcats that could be invited to NFL training camps this summer.Guys like Kyle Quinn and Dominique Austin could be part of NFL teams as well.As the culture changes down at UA, the football program should see an upswing in NFL prospects. But for now these are the three guys with the best chance to be selected in April. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo There are still teams — mainly ones that run a West Coast Offense — that can utilize Tutogi’s skillset and that could allow him to hear his name called on draft day.Best Fits: Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

A step closer to an east Med alliance

first_imgTHE leaders of Cyprus, Greece and Israel said on Thursday they were ready to proceed with an inter-state agreement concerning the EastMed pipeline, following a trilateral summit in Beersheba, Israel.The agreement will be signed pending approval from the European Commission, as the pipeline project has been designated an EU Project of Common Interest (PCI).Speaking after the tripartite summit, the fifth in a series, president Nicos Anastasiades said the decision to go ahead with the pipeline was among the most important and substantial decisions taken during the proceedings.“We have reached an agreement,” he said, noting that the text will be signed once it receives the approval of the European Commission.The agreement also contains references to the security of energy infrastructure.Anastasiades added that together with the pime ministers of Greece and Israel, Alexis Tsipras and Benjamin Netanyahu, they reaffirmed their political determination to promote the subsea electricity cable known as the EuroAsia Interconnector.“I deem that today’s summit was entirely successful with regards to the goals set, and I feel particularly satisfied because the development of our tripartite mechanism shows in a very tangible way that it has become a credible model of constructive regional cooperation, for the benefit of the people and the region in general,” Anastasiades said.“The field of energy comprises a key component of our cooperation,” he said in remarks after the summit.On a bilateral level, Cyprus and Israel signed a memorandum of understanding on cyber security and in the field of meteorology, as well as a joint declaration for cooperation in the exploration of outer space for peaceful purposes.For his part, Netanyahu called the EastMed “a pipeline for prosperity.”He added that the signing of the inter-state agreement was expected to take place in 2019, in Greece.The Israeli leader noted that the pipeline is an important project for Europe’s energy security, for the economies of Cyprus, Greece and Israel and for reinforcing the already important cooperation between the three countries.Commenting more broadly on the trilateral cooperation, Greece’s Tsipras said the aim was to include in the future more countries with energy resources in the region.“We aim to exclude no one,” he noted.Participating in the tripartite summit for the first time were the United States, represented by the US ambassador to Israel, David Friedman.“The United States supports the trilateral partnership between Israel, Greece and Cyprus. This partnership is an anchor of stability in the eastern Mediterranean and is based on common interests and common values that the three countries share together with the USA,” Friedman said.“The USA wholly supports the project and its goals that help diversify energy sources throughout the entire region and to help bring energy security to Europe.“I call on all countries in this region to help ensure that the project is successful.”As part of the deal, the three countries will set up a permanent secretariat in Nicosia whose task will be to monitor and coordinate the implementation of trilateral projects.The agreement was given much play in the Israeli press.The Jerusalem Post quoted sources as saying the establishment of a permanent secretariat signalled that the three nations are moving from being good friends to forging an actual alliance.“The establishment of a secretariat, a development one source said ‘institutionalises’ the relationship and gives it a greater sense of permanence, comes as the US – increasingly concerned about Russia’s advances in the eastern Mediterranean – has expressed both heightened interest and support for Israeli, Greek and Cypriot cooperation,” the paper said.At a business conference a day earlier, Netanyahu underlined the importance of the pipeline project.“This will turn Israel into a player in the global energy field; all signs indicate that it could run forward. This will, of course, strengthen our diplomatic capability which, to the same extent, of course, is also strengthening the economy and the military, because they are all related,” he said.Following the launch of a US-Greece strategic dialogue last week in Washington, the US State Department issued a statement saying that during that meeting Greece discussed its trilateral partnership in the eastern Mediterranean, “and the United States expressed interest in increasing its support for the Greece-Israel-Cyprus trilateral discussion, as invited.”US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said after that meeting that the eastern Mediterranean is “an important strategic border. The US is working to strengthen our relations with stable democracies and democratic allies there. Allies like Greece and Cyprus and Israel.”According to Greek media reports, Washington is examining the prospect of a four-way meeting between the US, Greece, Israel and Cyprus at the level of foreign ministers.Some industry experts believe the four governments and the EU cannot fund the EastMed project, which requires investor participation, as well as buyers for the gas.The pipeline is designed to initially carry 10 billion cubic meters a year from the east Mediterranean to Greece, about 1,900km, where it will connect to the Poseidon pipeline to Italy, about 300km.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
