The Future Does Not Exist

first_imgThe point here is that as the media world changes, what seems dominant today may turn out to be yesterday’s news in short order. Remember CompuServe, AOL, etc.? I could go on, but you get the point. So while the “Reimagining the Future (While We Still Have Time)” conference provided no real visionary solutions, because that’s impossible, it did offer a mosaic of opinion and perspective, when combined into a whole, provided a good look at where the industry is now and where it needs to go. The future doesn’t exist because we haven’t built it yet.And even more important, the students at the University of Mississippi were full participants. Anyone who spent a few days with the young journalists at that conference couldn’t help coming away with a new confidence about the future of the profession. These people are bright, energetic, savvy and ready to take the reins. Here is a list of some of the student participants. I wanted to acknowledge each of them by name, because they were all so impressive.Undergraduate Journalism Students:Natalie Dickson Kirby Sage Elizabeth Pearson Alex Pence Maggie Giffin Markus Simmons Katie Williamson Ja’juan McNeil Rashell Reese Addison Dent Houston Cofield Ren Turner Nick Toce (also event photographer)Alex McDaniel (also event coordinator) That phrase was the title of one of the presentations at Samir Husni’s recent conference, called “Reimagining the Future (While We Still Have Time),” and held at the Magazine Innovation Center in Oxford, Mississippi. The presentation was made by Thomaz Souto Correa, the vice president of editorial at The Abril Group in Brazil. And while Correa discussed many things, there is a particular idea in that title worth thinking about. Perhaps the future doesn’t exist because no one, and I mean no one, knows what it’s going to look like even two years from now. Think about one of the biggest debates of the last few years—whether to charge for online content. When Steve Brill and Walter Isaacson and Rupert Murdoch and others suggested that the status quo was unsustainable, the purveyors of the conventional wisdom came down hard. The cat’s out of the bag, they said. Stop thinking like it’s 1997. Start building a business for the Google economy. There’s no other choice.Well, one thing none of those wizards thought of was how mobile apps and iPads would change the equation. Now, suddenly, there’s a path to paid content online, because there’s a significant migration away from the free Internet and in the direction of apps you have to buy. Or apps from which publishers sell subscriptions to their content. last_img read more

Now, a couple of years later, the latter is staring down some quality upgrades for the 2020 model year.Land Rover on Tuesday unveiled the 2020 Discovery Sport. On the spectrum of refreshes, this one is right about in the middle, making some slight visual changes while also updating the more important underlying bits. Two new powertrains have been introduced: One is a 246-horsepower I4 from the modular Ingenium engine family, while the other one slaps a 48-volt mild hybrid system into the equation, boosting its output to 286 horsepower.That new mild hybrid system comes alongside a new underlying platform. Now riding on Land Rover’s Premium Transverse Architecture platform, not only does it allow the Discovery Sport to pick up this kind of electrification, it makes the body some 13 percent stiffer. It’s also quieter, thanks to some improved sound deadening measures.As for style, it’s a little different, but not too much. The front and rear bumpers are new, and to my eyes, a little sportier-lookin’ than before. The grille is different, but I didn’t notice that until I read it in the press release. There are also some new LED lights to further differentiate the refreshed Disco Sport from its forebear.Enlarge ImageIt might take a keen eye to find the differences, but on the whole, they make for a more premium-looking SUV. Land Rover Inside, the center console has been redesigned, eschewing the rotary dial in favor of the sticklike gear lever seen on other Jaguar Land Rover vehicles. This rejiggering also makes enough space for wireless device charging, a first for the Disco Sport. Six USB ports are scattered throughout, as well. A new rearview mirror can display what the rearview camera sees, while additional cameras beneath the front end allow off-roaders to see “through” the hood on the infotainment display.The interior is further gussied up with more premium materials, including a new optional non-leather seat material made from recycled polyester microfiber. You can even spec massaging seats, if you feel like really going for broke. Behind the first row, there are new cup holders and redesigned storage spaces, in addition to extra seat configurability, bringing the total number of available seat configurations to 24.On the infotainment front, the Discovery Sport now rocks Land Rover’s InControl Touch Pro system, with its 10-inch touchscreen replacing the outgoing setup. It’s not Touch Pro Duo, though — the climate controls aren’t relegated to their own screen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available, as is a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. Safety systems are available, but not standard, and they include adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking and lane-keep assist.The 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport hits dealerships in the summer, and pricing will be announced closer to the car’s on-sale date.Originally posted May 21.Update, June 10: Reduced mild hybrid output by 10 horsepower due to an error in Land Rover’s press release.

Khashoggi murder claims baseless Saudi

first_imgIn this file photo taken on 15 December, 2014, general manager of Alarab TV, Jamal Khashoggi, looks on during a press conference in the Bahraini capital Manama. Photo: AFPSaudi Arabia dismissed on Saturday accusations that Jamal Khashoggi was ordered murdered by a hit squad inside its Istanbul consulate as “lies and baseless allegations”, as Riyadh and Ankara spar over the missing journalist’s fate.As the controversy intensified, the Washington Post reported Turkish officials had recordings made from inside the building that allegedly proved their claims Khashoggi was tortured and killed at the consulate.A Saudi delegation arrived in Turkey for talks, officials said on Friday, with the case risking fragile relations between the two.In the first Saudi ministerial reaction to the accusations about Khashoggi’s killing, interior minister prince Abdel Aziz bin Saud bin Nayef said that “what has been circulating about orders to kill him are lies and baseless allegations”.The Kingdom “is committed to its principles, rules and traditions and is in compliance with international laws and conventions”, he added according to the official Saudi Press Agency.The case risks damaging the image of the kingdom and its ties to the West as crown prince Mohammed bin Salman promotes a reform drive at home.Big names from media and business have already cancelled appearances at a major conference in Riyadh this month.Saudi journalist and Washington Post contributor Khashoggi vanished on 2 October after entering the consulate to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage.Turkish government sources say police believe he was killed but Riyadh denies that.Did he leave?The Saudi delegation, whose composition was not immediately clear, is expected to meet with Turkish officials in Ankara at the weekend, state media said on Friday.It is likely that they will take part in a joint working group on the case, whose creation was announced Thursday by Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin following a request by Saudi Arabia.A Saudi official source quoted by SPA news agency said it was “a positive move” Turkey had agreed to the creation of what it described as a “joint action team” over Khashoggi’s disappearance.The Turkish leadership has so far stopped short of accusing Saudi Arabia, although pro-government media have published sensational claims, including that an “assassination team” was sent to Istanbul to kill Khashoggi.In a rare public comment on the case by a Saudi official, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to Britain, prince Mohammed bin Nawaf al Saud, told the BBC that Riyadh was “concerned” about its citizen.Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has challenged Saudi Arabia to provide CCTV images to back up its account that Khashoggi left the consulate safely.Khashoggi, a Saudi national living in the US since September 2017 fearing arrest, criticised some policies of Mohammed bin Salman and Riyadh’s intervention in the war in Yemen.The Washington Post reported the Turkish government has told US officials it has audio and video recordings which show how Khashoggi was “interrogated, tortured and then murdered” inside the consulate before his body was dismembered.Turkish officials contacted by AFP refused to comment on the veracity of the report.Visual’ search onlyAnkara and Riyadh have been on opposing sides in the region on key issues, including the ousting of the Islamist Egyptian government and last year’s Saudi-led blockade on Turkey’s regional ally Qatar. Yet as key Sunni Muslim powers they have maintained cordial relations.But despite Riyadh’s agreement on Tuesday to let Turkish authorities search the Saudi mission, the probe has not yet taken place. The two sides have been in intense contacts to resolve the issue, local media reported.Pro-government Turkish newspaper Sabah said the search of the consulate had not yet happened because Saudi officials would only allow a superficial “visual” probe.The Turkish side did not accept the offer and Sabah said officials wanted to search the building with luminol, a chemical that allows forensic teams to discover blood traces.Officers were looking into sound recordings sent from a smart watch that Khashoggi was wearing when he was inside the consulate to a mobile phone which he gave to his Turkish fiancee waiting outside, Hatice Cengiz.Milliyet daily reported that “arguments and shouting” could be heard on the recordings, but Sozcu newspaper said only “some conversations” could be heard.Chilling effectBloomberg, the Financial Times, The Economist and The New York Times withdrew as media sponsors from the second Future Investment Initiative to be held between 23-25 October in Riyadh dubbed “Davos in the Desert” after the World Economic Forum in the Swiss resort.The CEO of ride-hailing app Uber, Dara Khosrowshahi, said that he will no longer be attending the event unless “a substantially different set of facts emerges”.British entrepreneur Richard Branson said he would suspend two directorships linked to tourism projects in Saudi Arabia over concerns about the missing journalist.Amnesty International demanded the Saudi authorities reveal what happened to Khashoggi as it said Riyadh was “responsible at a minimum for enforced disappearance”.last_img read more

Houston Homeowners Move Forward After Harvey And Many Face Limited Options

first_img 00:00 /02:57 Listen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Allison LeeMonica Augusta, 47, says this is the second time her home has been flooded.Officials have estimated that Harvey’s floodwaters have destroyed 30,000 to 40,000 Houston homes. And as the city recovers, the people who lived in those homes are asking, “Now what?”Monica Augusta lives in the neighborhood of Bellaire, in southwest Houston. The houses on her block are surrounded by what seems like a graveyard of flood-damaged mattresses, furniture, and personal items.This is the second time her home has flooded, and she said it doesn’t get any easier.“It feels like everyone I talk to, and the more questions I ask, and different answers I get, the more overwhelmed and confused I feel,” she said. “I don’t want to go through this again. A single mom with two kids and two dogs. I can’t go through it again. But, when you have a mortgage that’s already overwhelming, how do you even begin to think of adding to that mortgage?”– / 3Many people around Houston are facing that same exact dilemma, and are reaching out to people like Sam Craven.Craven is the co-founder of Senna House Buyers, in the Heights. Since Harvey, he said he’s been having seven appointments a day; and has racked up over 200 miles on his car within three days, just to get to them.Credit: Allison LeeSam Craven, 32, drives to multiple Senna House Buyers’ clients a day, all across Houston.“Most of the people that I’ve met with have been in the hardest hit areas; the ones that have been hit multiple times. And so, they’ve kind of been through it before,” said Craven.“We have so many people calling us right now, who don’t even know what the next step is. From people calling us saying, ‘Hey, I don’t know how to dry out my house,’ to people calling us crying and upset because they’ve lost everything and they just want to move on and sell their home,” said Craven. “We find ourselves as an unfortunate subject matter expert, here.”Craven said he’s also concerned about insurance adjusters potentially moving their attention from Harvey, to Irma.Credit: Allison LeeSam Craven meets with homeowner Monica Augusta, to calculate how much it would cost to fix damages from Harvey, and how much his business can offer her for the house.And as flood victims continue to navigate through the process, Bellaire homeowner Monica Augusta said the cycle is overwhelming.“You take whatever money you can, make it livable, and move back in. Only to go through it again. Because you don’t have any other options, and I’m feeling that,” she said. “So, part of me thinks, ‘How could you ever go through this more than two, three times. But then I realize you just don’t have options….So maybe we rent the rest of our lives? I don’t know. We’re going to an apartment in [West University Place]. But even that’s terrifying, because now you have rent and a mortgage.”Over the years, Harris County has bought out more flooded homeowners than any county in the country. But the process can take years. And now, FEMA officials are telling the Houston Chronicle they’re trying to find ways to speed up the process, so flooded homeowners can consider buyouts instead of rebuilding.

Air Force drone pilots offered 175k to stick around for five more

first_imgIt’s 2016, and you no longer need to climb into a cockpit to fly for the U.S. Air Force. Drone pilots are in high demand — so high that the Air Force is offering extra $35,000 bonuses.Up until now, a drone pilot could earn a bonus of $25,000 for each year of a five-year term that they completed. Now, the Air Force is boosting that amount by an additional $10,000 per year.It’s being reported that the extra cash is aimed at increasing numbers — demand for drone pilots is climbing steadily right now thanks to the unprecedented pace of operations. Defense One reports that another reason for the shortfall is “a surge in hiring by airline companies.”There’s something darker going on, too. It’s not just the increased demand and hiring competition that’s making it tough for the Air Force to fill seats.Combat stress for so-called 18Xs is off the charts, and the Air Force has seen pilots quitting at a rate faster than new ones can be trained. According to an article from Salon last year, for every 180 trainees that graduated in a 12-month period 240 18Xs quit.PTSD is just as much a possibility for drone pilots as it is for their counterparts in the air. “They could be playing with their children shortly after witnessing up close and in graphic detail the effects of a 500-pound bomb,” wrote Sen. Claire McCaskill in a letter to the Air Force last year.The money might be good, but it has to be when the psychological risks are so sky high.last_img read more

Graphene paper able to behave like animated origami w video

first_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Explore further The work by the team was inspired by origami, an art form based on folding paper. In this instance, the paper was instead two types of one-atom thick sheets of graphene infused with hydrogen and oxygen compounds resulting in graphene oxide and graphene oxide-polydopamine. The former does not react to water but the second does. To create origami type structures, the team infused the latter with water molecules than bonded the two types of sheets together—when heat or light was applied to the second type, it would cause the water molecules to be released, making the paper shrink slightly, which in turn would exert a force that would pull against the second type of sheet. This allowed for the creation of hinges or joints which could be employed on command, which made the objects programmable in a sense.To demonstrate the usefulness of their idea, the team bonded sheets together in such a way as to cause a box to self-form. Another example was of a sheet that formed into a worm-shaped object that was capable of inching along a surface—the team found they could cause it to turn by heating just one side of it. The third was a claw-like object that was capable of grabbing onto something else and in some instances was able to lift other small objects. Play The photoactuation behavior of the self-folding box.

For their next project, they want to see if it might be possible to create similar types of objects at a much smaller scale, perhaps down to nanosize—they believe the properties and performance of such tiny objects would be different at such sizes and are eager to find out what they may be.

Kenya mall attack death toll may rise in search for bodies

first_imgNAIROBI, Kenya — Kenyan security forces expect to find the bodies of more gunmen who killed at least 67 civilians and security personnel and seized an unknown number of hostages in an attack on the Westgate Mall, the government said.Kenyan forensic investigators at the scene of the raid are being assisted by experts from Israel, the U.S., Germany, Canada and Britain in a probe that’s expected to last at least seven days, Interior Secretary Joseph Ole Lenku said Wednesday. The investigation will look into reports that planners rented a shop in the mall before the attack was carried out and that at least one of the assailants may have been female, he said.“We are convinced that there will be insignificant if any bodies holed up there except for the terrorists,” Ole Lenku told reporters in Nairobi, the capital. Five of as many as 15 gunmen involved in the attack have been confirmed dead, he said.The death toll from the four-day assault is the worst since al-Qaida bombed the U.S. Embassy in downtown Nairobi in August 1998, killing 213 people. Al-Shabaab, the Somali-based Islamist militia that claimed responsibility for the Sept. 21 raid, had threatened to strike after Kenya deployed troops in Somalia in October 2011 to fight the militants, blaming them for a series of kidnappings and the murder of a British tourist in Kenya. The al-Qaida-affiliated group denied the accusations.Three floors in the building collapsed during the attack, leaving an unknown number of bodies buried beneath the rubble, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta said Tuesday. Kenyan security forces used armored vehicles and weapons including heavy machine guns to end the assault. The Kenya Red Cross said Wednesday that 71 people are missing in the attack as of Tuesday.Al-Shabaab claimed on its Twitter account Wednesday that Kenyan forces demolished part of the building and were “culpable” for the lives of 137 hostages. Interior Ministry Principal Secretary Mutea Iringo declined to comment when asked about that figure.There is “increased public anxiety on account of missing persons, the disruption caused by the continued crisis and inadequate information flow,” it said. Ole Lenku didn’t say how many people are still missing.Kenya’s relative stability in a volatile region has attracted companies including Toyota, IBM, General Electric and Google to set up bases in the East African nation. The United Nations’ African headquarters are also in Nairobi.East Africa’s largest economy will stick to its plan to seek about $1.5 billion from its debut Eurobond issue by December and the outlook for economic growth is the same as before the attack, which is an “isolated” incident, Treasury Secretary Henry Rotich said Tuesday. The state forecasts 5.6 percent expansion in 2013 from 4.6 percent last year.The shilling gained for a second day and has now strengthened 0.2 percent since the day before the attack to 87.20 per dollar. The Nairobi Securities Exchange’s FTSE NSE 25 Index has gained 0.4 percent over the same period to its highest level in five weeks.The attack began around lunchtime on Sept. 21 when as many as 15 gunmen entered the upscale mall in Nairobi, throwing hand grenades, firing automatic weapons and forcing panicked patrons to flee the building or hide inside the more than 80 shops in the complex. The government said more than 1,000 people were rescued.More gunfire rang out Tuesday night and Wednesday, which the government said was the result of security forces firing to protect themselves as they entered new areas while doing a final sweep of the building, the Associated Press reported.Investigators are still trying to confirm the nationalities of the attackers, Ole Lenku said. Kenyan Foreign Secretary Amina Mohamed told PBS’s “NewsHour” on Monday that two or three Americans and a female British citizen participated in the attack. A British national has been arrested in Kenya, according to a statement emailed on Wednesday by the U.K. Foreign Office.African leaders remain committed to continue battling al- Shabaab’s forces in Somalia, the African Union’s Peace and Security Council said in a statement on its website Wednesday.The continental body will “continue its efforts in Somalia, in order to rid the country and the region of terrorist and criminal groups, and bring about lasting peace, security and stability in Somalia,” it said.Al-Shabaab has been fighting Somalia’s government since at least 2006. The militant group claimed responsibility in July 2010 for coordinated bomb attacks in neighboring Uganda that killed 76 people watching the soccer World Cup final at two venues. Al-Shabaab said it targeted Uganda because the country had troops serving in the African Union Mission in Somalia.Kenyatta, in a nationally televised address on Tuesday, thanked foreign leaders, including U.S. President Barack Obama, for their support during the ordeal and praised Kenyans for providing help to the victims. Citizens from the U.K., India, France, Canada, South Africa, China and Ghana are among the dead.“Terrorism is a global problem that requires global solutions,” said Kenyatta, who lost his nephew in the attack. “Kenya will stand with our friends in tackling terrorism and I ask our friends to stand with us.”With assistance from Eric Ombok in Nairobi, Kenya, Thomas Penny in London and William Davison in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.© 2013, Bloomberg News Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more

MultiState Mortgage Fraud Results in Hefty Sentence

first_img In Minnesota, a former house flipper was sentenced to more than eight years in federal prison for his role in a real estate investment scheme, topping _MReport’s_ weekly fraud blotter. The hefty sentence for Robert W. Dufrense, Jr., who is accused of bilking more than $5 million out of investors across multiple states, was more elaborate than expected due to an additional charge for obstructing justice.[IMAGE]According to “”_Twin Cities Business_””: magazine, Dufresne was convicted of one count of mail fraud and one count of money laundering for his house-flipping scam. However, the court discovered that following his guilty plea Dufresne had attempted to obstruct justice by selling assets.U.S. District Court Chief Judge, “”Michael J. Davis””, handed down Dufresne’s sentence of 97 months in prison, and he also slapped the fraudster with an order to pay over $6.5 million in restitution. Thursday’s sentencing comes almost a year after Dufresne pleaded guilty to the crimes in question.Coming clean on his activities, Dufresne confessed that he fraudulently collected money from investors that was allegedly going toward the purchase, renovation, and resale of residential properties. Those investing believed that the amount earned from flipping the houses, which were spread around Minnesota and various states, would then be split among them following the sale of the real estate assets.Dufresne went on to admit that in actuality he used the funds he accumulated for personal gain.
