A new polio campaign aimed at reaching children who have never been immunized is part of the expanded humanitarian push in the war-ravaged nation under the agreement on access signed over the weekend, spokesman Fred Eckhard told the press in New York. The UN World Food Programme (WFP) calculates that unhindered humanitarian access will enable it to provide aid to an additional 585,000 people in the Sudan. This comes on top of the almost 3 million already targeted for relief assistance. The landmark agreement that established the procedures for unimpeded humanitarian aid access to hundreds of thousands of war-affected people in Sudan was signed on Saturday by representatives of the Government, the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Army (SPLM/A) and the UN.

Almost a year ago, I reported on free downloadable software offered by a watchmaker called Tissot which allowed you to wear different style watches virtually to see how they would look on you before you buy. The augmented reality solution used a paper watch with a special symbol on it as a marker to help the software identify where the watch should appear relative to the screen. Sony has now announced an advancement in augmented reality technology which eliminates the need for such a marker and improves the performance of virtual images within a 3D space.AdChoices广告SmartAR, as Sony refers to it, is capable of identifying and tracking objects at a high rate of speed using a hybrid technology which combines advanced object recognition with matching and image tracking technology. Probably the most impressive part of SmartAR is in its ability to identify 3D structures that not only allows for virtual images to appear flawlessly, but also for those images to interact with the 3D structures around them such as a virtual bouncing ball being hit with a book you pick up off of a table.In one of the videos Sony produced to demo the technology, SmartAR was shown to be applicable for marketing. Users could view a sign or a brochure with their mobile phone that could trigger a virtual image of it to appear. The virtual image could also contain multiple pages the user could flip through like a book or catalog.In addition to a marketing application, gaming applications could also be possible, especially if Sony wanted to compete with Nintendo’s 3DS portable gaming system which offers gamers 3D without the need for special glasses. It’s possible the technology could make its way into the PSP2, expected later this year, but that is merely hopeful speculation.Read more at CrunchGear
Even though Motorola promised that phones launched in “late 2011” would ship with unlocked bootloaders, most watchers hoped that the company’s spate of summer releases would also come with bootloaders that were either unlocked from the start or could be unlocked easily. Sadly, the new Droid 3 ships with a locked bootloader, and modders aren’t happy about it.Many have taken to the Motorola customer service forums in droves, begging for an explanation. Little did they know that Motorola had already issued a statement on the matter, explaining that the company plans to “enable the unlockable/relockable bootloader in future software releases,” and went on to reiterate that the change will come later this year, “where channel and operator partners will allow it.” They say the Droid 3 simply doesn’t have the ability built in.AdChoices广告However, they do allude to the possibility of future software updates opening up the bootloader to modders who want to tweak or customize their devices. That wasn’t good enough for some Android fans, who insisted on knowing when the relockable bootloader would be standard on Motorola devices.The reason this is important is because a locked bootloader makes the process of rooting your Android phone significantly more difficult. Not that it’s particularly hard now, but locking the bootloader can make it significantly more difficult to install and get the full benefit of some ROMs.The only problem with Motorola’s statement is the “where channel and operator partners will allow it” section. This implies that Motorola could very well say that handsets directly from them would be unlocked if the carriers didn’t insist that they stay locked.It wouldn’t take much for Verizon Wireless or AT&T to insist that handsets they sell come with locked bootloaders for consistency and troubleshooting purposes, or to preserve licensing agreements with companies like Netflix and Hulu. Time will tell.Read more at Wired

Joshua Sacco, lawmaker for Chimanimani, told AFP that between “150 to 200 people” are missing.The majority of them are thought to be government workers, whose housing complex was completely engulfed by raging waters.Their fate was unknown because the area was still unreachable.“We are very worried because all these houses were just suddenly submerged under water and literally washed away and that is where we have about 147 missing,” he said.Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa cut short his visit to Abu Dhabi, saying on his return home today that “we are deeply grieved as a nation”.Includes reporting by – © AFP 2019 Share127 Tweet Email By Hayley Halpin
Serial Killer Peter Dupas has been ordered to pay the legal costs of the Seven Network after his application for two episodes of Killing Time to be suppressed were denied. Dupas was seeking an injunction to stop two episodes going to air on the basis that it would interfere with his right to fair trial if his conviction of the murder of Mersina Halvagis is overturned. Victorian Supreme Court judge Emilios Kyrou refused to grant the injunction, saying the matters portrayed in the episodes were already in the public domain. Justice Kyrou has ordered Dupas pay the Seven Network’s legal costs for work performed on October 19, the day of the injunction hearing. He said Dupas should have accepted the Seven Network’s offer to discontinue the proceeding without incurring any cost liability, or to seek an adjournment until late November.“In my opinion, the plaintiff acted unreasonably in not accepting the defendant’s offer of October 18, 2012 on that day or, at the very least, on the morning of October 19, 2012, prior to the hearing,” Justice Kyrou said. Dupas made a jailhouse confession to murdering Ms Halvagis to former lawyer and fellow inmate Andrew Fraser, on whose life Killing Time is based. Two years ago Dupas, 59, was jailed for life with no parole. He is also serving two life sentences for murdering Nicole Patterson and Margaret Maher. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram

Several residents of a North Pole neighborhood told Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly members Thursday that they do not want a marijuana-growing business in the area. Their arguments swayed half the members, but that wasn’t enough to pass a measure that would’ve opposed state approval of a business license for the facility.Residents of the Benshoof turned out in force again Thursday to protest a proposed marijuana-growing facility that they say should not be allowed in their mainly residential area. During the public hearing on a business-license request for the facility near the corner of Badger Road and Benshoof Drive, Lois Maxwell said she opposes it because it’ll harm children.“We try to teach the children that use of mind-altering substances is not a good idea,” Maxwell said. “But when it’s right in your neighborhood, it’s something that becomes the norm. And we don’t want it to be the norm.”Maxwell said her home, like many others, is only about 500 feet from where AK Green Bee Inc. wants to grow pot commercially. She said it’s not the right place for such a facility.Cyrus Freeman, another area resident, agreed. And he said he’s located a much better location in Salcha.“That property is on a much-larger wooded lot,” Freeman said. “With convenient access to the Richardson Highway.”A borough Planning Department map shows AK Green Bee’s proposed growing facility location, outlined in yellow, with distances to two churches, outlined in red, and adjacent residential areas. (FNSB graphic)Christa Dyer said she and others in the neighborhood have launched an effort to rezone the area to keep businesses that produce or dispense alcohol or marijuana from setting up shop there.“We started that process back in July,” Dyer said. “It’s just a really slow process – looks like about six months.”And 11-year-old Kyra Rodriguez says the facility just kind of creeps her out.“I just, I don’t like it,” Rodriguez said. “And when I walk home it makes me feel uncomfortable.”AK Green Bee owner Monique Daigle said she understands her neighbors’ concerns, and has made several changes in the layout and design of her 2,400-square-foot growing facility to accommodate them.“As far as children in the neighborhood – I’m a parent,” Daigle said. “I’m a grandparent.”Daigle said she’s met all borough and state requirements for the license. She said she supports residents’ drive to rezone the neighborhood just east of her property, even though that’ll require additional floor-plan adjustments. She said her facility will be well-secured and won’t generate much traffic – only a few vehicles a day for employees and one or two deliveries. And she’ll open a new entry away from the neighborhood in the spring.“We are responsible members of our community who feel that as the business owners, we owe it to the members of our community to operate with integrity,” Daigle said.After the hearing, Assemblyman Lance Roberts urged fellow members to disregard the borough administration’s recommendation to support the business license and instead vote for a resolution he sponsored that would urge the state Marijuana Control Board to deny it. He recounted reasons he cites whenever the Assembly considers a marijuana business-license request: that pot is still illegal under federal law and is bad for your health. And he said this time, there’s another important consideration.“What really matters for this case specifically, is how it is adjacent to residential neighborhood,” Roberts said. “There’s so many places it could’ve been put, but instead it was put right next to a residential neighborhood.”That argument resonated with three other Assembly members – Matt Cooper and newly elected Angela Major and Aaron Lojewski. The four voted in favor of Roberts’ resolution opposing the business license, but the measure failed on a four-to-four tie vote –Assemblyman Shaun Tacke recused himself because he’s active in the cannabis industry.After Roberts’ measure failed, the Assembly voted seven to one to recommend the Marijuana Control Board grant the business license pending AK Green Bee obtaining a borough conditional-use permit.The Assembly then approved resolutions supporting licenses for two other marijuana businesses, with Roberts the lone dissenting vote.

He said ZEEL has five suitors — from India to Japan, Europe and the US. “You might get surprised with the names,” he said in the first interview after his letter to stakeholders acknowledging wrong steps after the January stock collapse. He also said that Essel will repay every rupee of the group’s Rs 17,174-cr debt. A report in Mint said recently that roads platform Cube Highways and Infrastructure Pte Ltd and Canada’s Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ) are in talks to buy three toll roads from debt-laden Essel Group.

Ravens at Packers (+2) – Even without Aaron Rodgers, Colin likes Green Bay as 2-point home underdogs against the Ravens and their struggling offense. Joe Flacco is on pace for the worst passer rating of his career, the Ravens ranks last in the NFL in yards per play on offense, and are just 3-8-1 ATS over their last 12 on the road.Brett Hundley is no Aaron Rodgers, but he’s completing 69.8% of his passes with a passer rating of 95.8 in his last 2. Packers win and cover. 24-20. Advertisement Bengals at Broncos (-2.5) – Denver has looked atrocious on offense recently, but Colin loves them giving 2.5 in a bounce-back game against Andy Dalton at home. The vaunted Broncos D just got gashed by Tom Brady and the Patriots, but should get well against a Cincy offense that’s only averaging 16.3 PPG and 227.8 YPG in their last 4 (1-3).Defensively, the Bengals are allowing opponents to convert on 55.1% of 3rd downs over their last 3 games, and have allowed 149.0 Rush YPG over their last 4. Even without a quarterback, Denver covers. 27-20, Broncos. NFL Week 11 is here and it’s time for Colin’s Blazin’ 5 picks. He’s coming off another winning week (3-2), and is a solid 30-20 on the year (60.0%). This week, more winners.Here are Colin’s Week 11 NFL plays:Lions at Bears (+3) – Give Colin the Bears, at home, getting a field goal against the Lions. Chicago is 4-1 ATS over their last 5, 4-1 ATS over their last 5 at home, and 4-1 ATS over their last 5 vs Lions. In is last 2 home starts, Mitchell Trubisky is averaging 9.62 yards per pass, with 0 Giveaways and a 99.7 Passer Rating. As a team, Chicago has a +0.8 PPG differential at home as opposed to a -12.0 PPG differential on the road.Colin likes the Bears running back combo of Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen facing a Lions D that has allowed 136.8 Rush YPG and 7 rushing TD’s over their last 4 games. Take the Bears, the points, and the outright win. 24-23, Da Bears. Eagles (-3.5) at Cowboys – Colin is gladly swallowing 3 with a dominant Eagles team facing the banged-up Cowboys without Zeke Elliott, Sean Lee and All-Pro left tackle Tryron Smith.Philly is 5-0 ATS in their last 5, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, and 4-2 ATS in their last 6 against the Cowboys in Dallas. Carson Wentz leads the NFL in 3rd Down Passer Rating, and will face a Dallas D ranked 27th in 3rd Down defense. Wentz and Philly cover the 3.5, 31-24.? Blazin’ 5 is 30-20 through Week 10 ?@ColinCowherd makes his Week 11 picks? and they’re ? pic.twitter.com/7PoHGUk5xH— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) November 17, 2017 Bucs (+3) at Dolphins – In a battle of bad Florida teams, Colin likes the Ryan Fitzpatrick led Bucs getting a field goal on the road in Miami. Colin thinks this Dolphins’ squad may have already thrown in the towel on the season, based on the fact they’ve lost by an average of 22.3 PPG, and have allowed 184.0 Rush YPG during their current 3-game losing streak.Tampa is 3-1 when they run it for 90 or more yards, and they should be able to here with a healthy Doug Martin. Take the Bucs, the 3, and the outright W. 27-20, Tampa.

Figures were cited Friday of $50 million for the total project, some 70 percent of it financed by Banco Nacional, though this appears to be a low-ball estimate that could rise higher.The visionary behind this project and one of the chief investors is a 66-year-old U.S. developer born in Israel named Noam Schwartz.

Karl Kahler/The Tico Times“We developed a lot of projects in Quepos and Manuel Antonio, 10 or 11 projects,” Schwartz said in a brief interview on the pier. “And then we had an opportunity to buy a piece of land here, and that was before the recession. Everything was quick — how much money do you need, $20 million, $40 million? And so we bought the land with some other partners, and it developed from there.“We started construction about 10 years ago, and the recession came, and we had to stop. So it was sitting dead for about eight years. And now I’m semiretired, so I decided to come here and make this the — I don’t want to say the last project — but THE project.” President Luis Guillermo Solís addresses the audience. Karl Kahler/The Tico TimesPedro Abdalla, the San José-based chief architect, noted in remarks to the audience that Golfito’s duty-free zone, the Depósito Libre, opened its doors exactly 27 years ago, on April 21, 1990.“Golfito is a real treasure, with an extraordinary potential for development,” he said. He cited figures about the employment this project would create and said it was the goal that 80 percent of the employees come from the Southern Zone. Golfito Marina Village pier. Karl Kahler/The Tico Times“After 12 years, I’m extremely emotional,” he said, sniffing back tears, as the crowd broke into applause.Also in attendance, most of them addressing the audience, were Vice President Ana Helena Chacón, Tourism Minister Mauricio Ventura, Golfito Mayor Elberth Barrantes and Banco Nacional General Manager Juan Carlos Corrales.

Ventura, with scissors in hand, asked which girl’s ponytail he was supposed to cut off, and the kids shrieked.David Johson, the Fort Lauderdale-based marina sales director, said the Golfito marina fills a need for superyachts that routinely pass Costa Rica by, on their way to the Galapagos or elsewhere, because there’s no place for them to dock.
