COPY LINKAD Loading … Radar Images of the skirmish between MiG-21 of Indian Air force and Pakistani F-16Source: Indian Air forceThe Indian Air force(IAF) on Monday (April 8) released the radar images of the aerial combat between its MiG-21 Bison and F-16 of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) and reiterated that it has “irrefutable evidence” of shooting down the enemy jet. Amid calls for evidence, the IAF conducted a media briefing at the Defence Ministry where the graphics captured from airborne warning and control system (AWACS) were shown. Air Vice Marshal R G Kapoor said, “The IAF has irrefutable evidence of not only the fact that F-16 was used by Pakistan Air Force on February 27, but also that an IAF Mig 21 Bison shot down a Pakistan Air Force F-16.”The development came after, Foreign policy, a US journal claimed that an audit carried out by two US officials found no F-16 missing from PAF. However, the United States Department of Defence has said that it was “not aware” of any audit of Pakistan’s F-16 jets. The IAF also rubbished the claim and argued that it had multiple proofs including electronic signatures, radio transmission intercepts and radar images to show that one F-16 of PAF was also shot down.center_img In a media brief on Monday evening, the IAF official further added, “There is no doubt that two aircraft went down in the aerial engagement on February 27, one of which was a Bison of IAF while the other was an F-16 of PAF conclusively identified by its electronic signature and radio transcripts.”The IAF did not reveal further details of the information due to security reasons. “However, due to security and confidentiality concerns, we are restricting the information being shared in the public domain.” Notably, on 28th of Feb, the IAF had also shown the pieces of an AMRAAM missile, fired by a Pakistani F-16, which also proved that Pakistan did use US-manufactured fighter jets against Indian military establishments. On February 27, three Pakistani F-16s crossed over the Line of control and entered the Nowshera sector at around 1005 hours in the morning and targeted four Indian military installations with bombs. The raid was carried out in response to India’s non-military air strike on terrorist hide-outs in Balakot, Pakistan.last_img read more

This tag can be applied to individual pieces of content or to entire communities”.On Reddit, anyone can create a community on nearly any topic imaginable and each community is independently moderated by volunteer users. Community members can share content including stories, links, and images.San Francisco, California-based Reddit has also updated its policy on involuntary pornography and the sexualization of minors.Reddit follows several other platforms that have already banned deepfakes pornography. That includes Gfycat, Discord, and recently Pornhub, which said that deepfakes imagery counted as nonconsensual pornography.last_img read more

Work in education and health departments were a close second, bringing 12,000 jobs to the city.So what does this mean for Houstonians?“If the job growth keeps up, wages typically begin to rise because employers have a harder time finding workers,” she said.The sector that has experienced the most jobs lost in the past year is construction.

first_imgYEEESSSS! #Thrawn Season 3 #StarWarsRebels!— Michael Pasquale (@800lbProds) July 16, 2016Bryce: What is the name of the Character who teaches Ezra through the Sith Holocron.Dave: “That’s a great question. This is a horrible answer. I know who that is and I���m not going to tell you.” Bryce is 12 and Dave made sure to mention that it’s always the younger fans who ask the most direct and dangerous questions. All of it said with a smile.Fan: There was a ship that looked like the Outrider. Are we going to see Dash Rendar?Dave: “I’ll be direct with you, no. But, the ship you got…it a YT-2400. “Sam Witwer: “Could it be Kyle Katarn?”Dave : “Why would you do that?!”If there’s a takeaway from the questions and answers, it boils down to this –– Instead of looking in the past and using voice actors and characters from The Clone Wars/Legends, Dave Filoni wants to create new voices and introduce us to new characters. If he does bring in a voice actor from TCW, he’d like it to be in a new role.Speaking of which, this one question did intrigue him.Fan: “Are you bringing in Maz Kanata?”Dave: “That’s a great idea.”It looks like Star Wars Rebels fans have a lot to look forward to this fall when season three debuts. That announcement was so artfully done. Star Wars #Thrawn by Timothy Zahn coming spring 2017.— Star Wars Books (@DelReyStarWars) July 16, 2016There was also a nice surprise for fans of Doctor Who and Tom Baker. Baker lent his vocal talents to the character of Bendu, the tree-like character talking to Kanan in the trailer. Dave describes Bendu as the middle way of the force. A force of nature. he went on to say that, from the moment he created the character, he said, “It’s gotta be Tom Baker” and he’s so happy Tom agreed.They then tossed it to the Q & A portion of the panel. I’m not including every question and answer but here are a couple that give you more insight into what’s coming and how Thrawn’s addition to the new canon may or mat not affect other Star Wars Legends characters.Francesca: Will Mara Jade be coming?Dave: “I saw that coming a mile away…No, not likely.”. When the sounds of “awwwww” filled the room, Dave grinned, “Remember we got Thrawn, yay!”. He went on to say that Sam Witwer asked him to make this clear. The Ysalamiri haven’t been integrated into the new canon “beyond a taste”. We then got our first clip of a jetpack-filled chase in which Sabine and Ezra have to deal with more than a few Mandos. Blasters, jetpacks, lightsabers, careening through canyons. This clip was a blast.Discussion turned Sam Witwer’s way and with it we got into Darth Maul. Question for Sam, what will we see for Maul in season 3? Per Witwer and Filoni, Maul is coming to grips with his life and what it all means. Yep, Maul’s starting to question his existence. He’s fallen short of his goals multiple times, built power several times and taken a fall, so what will he learn from that? Filoni says that, while he’s still on the evil side of things, he’s coming to some sort of resolution.We also learned that Maul really does want more from Ezra and that his connection to him wasn’t just to get the Holocron in “Twilight Of The Apprentice.” Maul thinks of Ezra as his apprentice. In his mind, Ezra is misguided and needs a nudge. Maul’s looking to build his legacy.Timing is everything because this is where we got a second clip.This one with Maul meeting again with Ezra and Kanan (that’s an interesting meeting). Maul may have had to kidnap the rest of the Ghost crew to make this meeting happen, but hey, semantics.A little bit of trivia from Filoni: The set in the second clip was from an unused digital set made for Maul for season 6 or 7 of The Clone Wars (had the show continued). They went back and tweaked it and used it.Which brings us to the trailer.First off, I got goosebumps. Honestly. Literally. Goosebumps.Maybe we should call it Star Wars Rebels Season 3 – The Rise Of Thrawn.Thrawn’s reveal has been rumored and we all had a feeling, but seeing him in the flesh so to speak made it real. He’ll be voiced by Lars Mikkelsen (House Of Cards). Thrawn trilogy author Timothy Zahn also sent along a message for the fans that included giving Dave Filoni and the Rebels crew the Zahn seal of approval and to announce his new book. @geekgirldiva that beardstache— мα∂ιѕσи н. ☾ (@CynderMizuki) July 16, 2016 If there was a panel I was looking forward to most, it’s The Star Wars Rebels panel. I’ll admit that I’m trying to figure out how to watch and talk about it at the same time, so please forgive  any errant squees of delight as we get into this.Host Warwick Davis somehow managed to make you feel like you were looking in on a friendly conversation between him (and a whole room of people), Rebels director and creator Dave Filoni, Tiya Sircar (Sabine), and Sam Witwer (Darth Maul).Big takeaways:Dave Filoni is more passionate about Star Wars than you or I will ever be. He dropped a few hints because, as he joked, the audience got quiet because they know he gets on a roll and he drops info by accident since he’s “a talker”.Sam Witwer is Maul and The Emperor all rolled into one with a great sense of humor. He’s the Dark Side to Filoni’s light. It’s awesome.Tiya Sircar is so excited for Sabine’s new jetpack, Darksaber (yes, that Darksaber from The Clone Wars), and the deeper dive into her Mandalorian side this season. This means more Mandalorians that she may or may not be related to (is there a Fett branch on the family tree?) and that Sabine will face her past in a very real way. There are “some altercations.”Kanan’s goatee has given way to a full beard and mustache. Hera’s got a new rank pin, and Sabine also got a killer new dye job. I mentioned Ezra and Zeb’s changes a bit earlier this week.last_img read more

first_imgInternet Archive releases Winamp Skins Collection by Martin Brinkmann on October 04, 2018 in Music and Video – Last Update: October 04, 2018 – 15 commentsThe Internet Archive published a huge collection of skins for the media player Winamp the other day which anyone may browse and download.Winamp is still a popular media player despite the fact that it has not really received a meaningful update in recent years.While a development version of Winamp 5.8 leaked to the Internet recently, it appears that Winamp development is more dead than alive.The media player is still used by millions, however as it works considerably well, even when you run it on newer versions of the Windows operating system.Skins were always a big part of the Winamp experience. Users could download and install hundreds of skins for the player to change its interface. From skins that simply changed colors to full conversions, custom skins offered something for all users.Ownership changed in 2014 and while Winamp survived most of the content that was on the classic website did not. Users had to go elsewhere to download skins or plugins for the media player, and the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine offered access to most of the content.Winamp Skins CollectionJust head over to the Winamp Skins Collection page on the Internet Archive website to browse the selection of skins for the media player. You get the usual filter, search and sort options, and a preview of each skin by default.A click on a skin displays it as a larger preview that is sometimes animated.  Winamp users can download skins from the Internet Archive website or follow the link to the Webamp website to see it in action in any modern web browser.Webamp is web-based version of the Winamp player. Webamp, the online player that supports Winamp skins, runs in any modern browser on any operating system.You can load local music in the player and play it right away, or play the default playlist instead. Some features are limited, however. It is not possible for instance to play Internet Radio using Webamp.Winamp users need to drop the skin file on the player interface to install it. Note that this may require elevation and that you will get an “are you sure” prompt. The skin is then available just like any of the default skins.If you use Webamp, simply right-click on the player on the Webamp website and select Skins > Load Skin to select a skin from the local system.Closing wordsWhile I prefer AIMP over Winamp, as the former is in active developed, I know quite a few users who still use Winamp for audio playback on their devices.A central repository for Winamp skins is a welcome addition to the Internet Archive. The organization has added numerous collections to the archive in recent years. From arcade games, DOS games and other games that you can play online or download, to computer magazines, and music collections.Now You: which media player do you use?SummaryArticle NameInternet Archive releases Winamp Skins CollectionDescriptionThe Internet Archive published a huge collection of skins for the media player Winamp the other day which anyone may browse and download.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgGoogle apparently wants all the web developers to adopt the AMP approach for their websites. The AMP project was announced by Google on October 7, 2015, and AMP pages first became available to web users in February 2016. Mobile search is more popular presently as compared to desktop search. It is important for web pages to appear in Google’s mobile search results, and this is why AMP is not optional for web publishers. Without AMP, a publisher’s articles will be extremely unlikely to appear in the Top Stories carousel on mobile search in Google. This means the developers will have two options for them, either to design the complete app in the AMP format, or have two formats ready, one as per their own design considerations, the other as per the Google AMP format. Does that really work for the developers? We will try to address that question here in this article. The trouble with Web content – Searchability and Indexing The searchability of your application is heavily dependent on the structure & format of your app. To be found on Google search is dependant on how easily Google can crawl and index your application. The main challenge for indexing is the vast nature of internet and the wide variety of applications that exist. The absence of a structure or a particular format makes the task of checking website content and categorizing them very difficult. This was the primary reason why Google had come up with the idea of Accelerated Mobile Pages. The purpose of adopting AMP is to make all web and mobile applications conform to a certain structure, so that they can be easily classified and categorized. Since the implementation of ‘mobile first’ approach – an approach that puts more emphasis on the mobile platform and UI considerations for mobile devices, the AMP way has been slowly becoming the most preferred way of app designing. But the real question here is are developers adopting this particular design thinking willingly or are they finding themselves running out of other options with Google forcing its hand on how they design their apps. The Ground Realities of the Web – Diversity vs Uniformity The truth is that the internet is a diverse playing ground. It’s a place for information sharing. As such, the general consensus is not exactly in line with Google’s vision of a uniform web. Google started off as a search engine whose main task was to be the gateway of information – to lead people to the specific web addresses. From there on, they have evolved to be one of the leading beneficiaries of the world wide web. The next step in Google’s evolution seems to be quite natural to take control over content and hosting. Google has also recently announced that they are going to lay down undersea internet cable from Japan to Guam, and from Guam to Australia. They are portraying this decision as an economic decision which will save them money eventually after the cables are laid. But some are seeing this as a step to remove external dependencies and as a step closer to total control over the internet. Google’s recent partnering deal with WordPress is a proof that Google is taking steps towards owning up the web hosting space. AMP specification means that Google will have the final say over design specifications. The diversity in design will suffer as you would not want to spend time to design a site that won’t be indexed by Google. Hence the developers will only have two options, use the pre-designed template provided by Google, or make two specific website designs, one as per their own design consideration and the other one as per AMP. But Google will keep showing you error signs if your AMP version doesn’t match the main design. Hence the choice finally narrows down to choosing AMP. The trouble with AMP Your content published using AMP is stored in a Google cache and hence repeated views are loaded from the cache. This also means that the user will actually spend more time in Google’s own page and will see Google’s ads and not the ones which the content creator had put up. This by extension means loss of revenue for the actual content creator. Using Analytics is far more difficult in AMP-based pages. The AMP pages are difficult to customize and hence difficult to design without looking similar. So the web might end up with similar looking apps with similar buttons and UIs all across. The AMP model takes its own decisions as per how it actually shows your content. So you don’t get to choose your metadata being displayed, but Google does. That means less control over your content. With Google controlling the extent to which your website data is displayed, all the pages are going to look similar with very little metadata info shown, fake stories will appear parallel to normal news thumbnails because there will be very little text displayed to enable to make a call, whether a story is true or false. All of these come with the caveat that AMPed up pages will rank higher on Google. If that’s the proverbial carrot used to lure web publishers to bring their content under Google’s umbrella, then we must say that it’s going to be a tricky choice for developers. No one wants a slow web with irregular indexing and erroneous search results. But how far are we prepared to let go of individuality and design thinking in this process, that’s a question to ponder about. Read Next Google wants web developers to embrace AMP. Great news for users, more work for developers. Like newspapers, Google algorithms are protected by the First Amendment Implementing Dependency Injection in Google Guicelast_img read more

Congress fell apart It has been used to constant guidance from 10 Janpath Any independent thinking or decision making has been discouraged all these years Now with the benign control gonethe Congress became rudderless It had an advantage over Anna Hazare derived from its legitimacy as elected representatives It presumed the mantle of democracy and went into an aggressive overdrive The attempt to defame Anna as a corrupt man by several senior Congress spokespersons was frightening and pathetic at the same time It was obvious that the Congress could not tolerate any oppositionno matter how small The idea that the alleged misuse of Rs 22 lakh was a serious offence was just laughable That kind of bribe would not get you the watchmans post in Adarsh Building It was at this juncture that

mandals in the city more alluring and attractive For so many years he has been designing and adding shine to the ornaments of the deity Vedak who belongs to the third generation in his family specialising in making ornaments for idols designs the crown bangles and necklaces Weighing almost 72 kilograms the ornaments are made of almost 50-60 kilograms of silver while the rest is plated in gold “I have been making ornaments for the famous pandals in the city including Lalbaug Ganesha Galli Sahyadri GSB Wadala among others We start our work almost four months in advance to cater to almost 48 pandals in the city The rest of the days me and my team makes ornaments for the idols at temples in the city” Vedak said Vedak with 17 workers to his aid distributes work among his four centres across the city The work is challenging he claims “We need to take the exact measurement of the mould of the Ganapati before beginning to design the ornaments The challenge with making them is it must suit the texture colour combination of the idol and make it more appealing Most of the idols are made of clay and we receive a lot of flak from organisers even if a single part of the idol gets scratched” he added While crowns are gold-plated smaller idols receive crowns completely made of gold In some ornaments there are diamonds fitted to add to the glow “We get a decent amount of money for making the ornaments on the idol more appealing Sometimes the ornaments are preserved by the mandals after the festival and returned to us for gold plating again the next year Sometimes they ask us to redesign the ornaments if the size of the idol gets changed” Vedak added and claimed that they had receiving orders from 23 more pandals in the city Vedak has been catering to mandals across Ratnagiri Malavan Palghar and others Though not very profitable he claimed he does the job because he adores it “One of the reasons I continued pursuing this for so many years is because it is my family tradition Also I believe the Lord has been giving me enough to meet my requirements What is important is for my clients to be happy with the work and the devotees to feel pleasant after seeing their deity” he added The challenges to his job he claims are differences brought by various pandals to shapes of the idols each year “Different mandals try to bring variations with shape and form of the idol which makes it more difficult for me to shape the ornament Before we even begin to colour it we first test its fitting with the idol” he added What keeps him going he believes is it’s the wish of the Lord “I am not the one doing it as I believe I have a calling from the Lord to do so My only aim is to make sure the idol looks even nicer with my designed ornaments” he added For all the
