60th anniversary of Willie ORees groundbreaking NHL debut

first_imgThursday marks the 60th anniversary of hockey pioneer Willie O’Ree breaking the NHL’s colour barrier.O’Ree, who hails from Fredericton, New Brunswick, made his debut in 1958 during a 3-0 Boston Bruins victory against the Canadiens at the Forum in Montreal.60 years ago today, Willie O’Ree broke the colour barrier in the #NHL and has since opened doors for countless players over the past six decades.Thank you, Willie, for your incredible contributions to this game! #HockeyIsForEveryone pic.twitter.com/GrVybZrk3A— Calgary Flames (@NHLFlames) January 18, 2018In an interview with Rob Kerr from Sportsnet 960 The Fan, O’Ree said he came from simple beginnings.“It was a lot of fun just being on the ice,” he explained. “Not only skating on the rink in my backyard, but there were ponds, lakes, creeks and rivers. I used to skate to school!”When he made his debut at 22, he had no idea what kind of impact he was making.“I wasn’t aware until the next day when I read it in the paper,” he said. “I was just so excited about being called up and playing against the Montreal Canadiens, who at that time were winning the Stanley Cup over and over again.”O’Ree, now 82, spends much of his time taking part in speaking engagements and making sure the younger generation knows they can truly make a difference.“I teach them about having respect for other people,” he said. “I can relate to these boys and girls and let them know ‘be all you can be’ and feel good about yourself.”last_img read more

UN agencies hail results of measles vaccination campaign in Madagascar

Officials from Madagascar’s Health Ministry announced this week that 97.7 per cent of the 7.7 million children targeted by the campaign were reached – compared to the expected rate of 95 per cent – by the thousands of volunteer teams that fanned out across the country to give the vaccines. The figure could increase further as two of the country’s 111 districts have not yet reported their final totals for the 25-day scheme that began on 13 September. The World Health Organization’s (WHO) country representative Andre Ndikuyeze said the project had brought Madagascar much closer towards eradicating an infectious disease that kills or debilitates thousands of its children every year. “The next step is now to strengthen routine surveillance to ensure that no more children die from measles,” he said. About six out of every 10 children in Madagascar were not immunized before the campaign began, and many have also been unprotected against tetanus, diphtheria and pertusis. The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), which supplied the vaccines, hailed the results and said it was a tribute to the efforts of the thousands of vaccinators and community mobilizers who carried out the work. read more

UN officials cite race against time to prevent humanitarian catastrophe in South

Hilde Johnson, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and head of the UN peacekeeping mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), told a news conference in the capital, Juba, that plans are under way to establish alternative sites for tens of thousands of civilians who sought protection in UN compounds.It is estimated that 70,000 civilians are currently sheltering at UN compounds around the country which opened its gates to offer protection when the fighting between Government and opposition forces began in mid-December 2013. Overall, about a million people in South Sudan have been forced from their homes due to the conflict.“It was always clear to us that our UN compounds were never designed to accommodate such huge numbers of people for such a length of time,” Ms. Johnson stated. “The conditions have been very difficult from the outset. The sites are alarmingly over-crowded and basic services not more than rudimentary. “With the rainy season now settling in, conditions are getting worse,” she said, warning that the sites in Tomping and Malakal, in particular, are at imminent risk of turning into “death traps.” These areas are likely to get flooded during the upcoming rainy season, and have to be closed before there is an outbreak of deadly water-borne diseases, such as cholera and typhoid.Following the violent rains that raged over Juba a couple of weeks ago, half of the latrines in the Tomping protection site collapsed and the drainage systems were severely damaged. “As the rains increase, we all may find ourselves with a health catastrophe on our hands,” said Ms. Johnson.As such, the Mission has decided to close the Tomping protection site in May. Several hundred internally displaced persons from that site have already been relocated to a new site in the Jebel area adjacent to the UN House. Once the construction of the new site is complete, all of the displaced will be transferred there. “We are in a race against time to establish the alternative sites,” said Ms. Johnson.The envoy stated that the best option, however, is for all displaced persons to be able to go back to their homes in safety and dignity. “This means that peace and security need to reign in South Sudan. UNMISS calls on all the parties to stop the fighting that has resulted in so much suffering, and continue negotiations in good faith towards a peaceful solution to the conflict.”Also calling for a real cessation of hostilities was Toby Lanzer, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in South Sudan and deputy head of UNMISS, who described the situation in the country as “extremely serious” and one of the greatest humanitarian challenges he has ever seen. “It exceeds what I saw in Darfur,” said Mr. Lanzer, a seasoned UN relief official. “But it could get a lot worse and we need to prepare ourselves for that.” As a result of the devastating consequences of the conflict, South Sudan is classified as an “L3” humanitarian emergency by the UN, the highest level accorded by the world body. The other two countries in this category are the Central African Republic and Syria. Speaking to reporters in Geneva, where met with the donor community, Mr. Lanzer noted that there are 3.7 million people in South Sudan who are already at risk of severe malnutrition. “It is all about April and May,” he said, referring to the planting season that is so vital to ensure a harvest in October and November. He underscored the need for a halt to the fighting so that people can feel safe enough to return to their fields and plant their crops, warning: “If we miss the planting season, there will be a catastrophic decline in food security.” The UN and its partners need $232 million for the next 60 days so that they can provide enough assistance in four key parts of the country – Unity, Upper Nile, Jonglei and Lakes.“My message to donors is: Don’t be shy, don’t wait. Every dollar that’s given today can enable us to help flood South Sudan with seeds, with tools, with fishing nets, to help enable people to look after themselves,” he stated. The funds will also enable agencies to pre-position relief ahead of the rainy season and to continue to help people in the second half of the year.“I don’t the time has come yet where a comprehensive peace is on the cards today. We’re not there yet. The time isn’t ripe for that. The wounds are too fresh. However, there are things that could be put in place at the moment to take pressure off people to enable them to access their fields,” Mr. Lanzer stated.“I think that a real cessation of hostilities which the parties to the conflict respect, and which enables people to plant and cultivate, that could be a very important first step in the right direction.” read more

Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan to star in film portraying fictional romance between

“Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas James Birch organised an auction of specimens he had purchased from the Anning family in 1820 which raised £400.”That was an awful lot of money in those days and he donated it back to the Anning family.”I think that was a huge romantic gesture.”Ammonite has been developed by See-Saw Films, the British Film Institute and BBC Films, according to Deadline, the entertainment website which revealed the castings.Production is expected to start in March. Tracy Chevalier, a novelist who wrote a fictional book based on Anning’s life, has speculated she may have been romantically attached to an army officer.She told the BBC in 2010: “There’s evidence to suggest Mary had a romantic relationship that ended badly, but no one knows with whom. Mary Anning However her work, including the unearthing in around 1811 of a 17-foot ichthyosaur skeleton when she was just 12, went largely uncredited in her lifetime because she was a woman.Anning’s other finds included the skeleton of a pterodactyl, a winged dinosaur, in 1828.She was from a poor family and never married or had children, and some aspects of her personal life, including any romantic relationships, remain largely unknown.

Raspberry Pi GPU beats Tegra 2 doubles iPhone 4S performance

first_imgAnticipation for the launch of the Raspberry Pi $25 PC continues to grow as its launch window gets ever closer. Over the past few months it has been surprising to see what the tiny machine is capable of. Videos of it running Quake III, playing back 1080p video, and handling graphics-intensive particle and sprite demos have all impressed, but until now we haven’t really been able to gauge how the device compares to other gadgets.Eben Upton has an interview going live today with Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry, and it offers up new insight into just how powerful the Raspberry Pi is. You may be surprised to find what it is actually better than in terms of performance.The Raspberry Pi relies on a custom chipset from Broadcom called the BCM2835. Being custom, it has allowed the development team to tweak performance to the point where Eben believes it is the best mobile GPU available. That’s easy to say when you’ve worked on the chip, so he’s given some examples to show how well it performs. The GPU apparently doubles the performance currently found in the iPhone 4S. It is also expected to easily outperform Nvidia’s Tegra 2.If you consider what an iPhone 4S is capable of, and all those devices running graphically intensive apps on the Tegra 2 platform, you can see the potential impact the Raspberry Pi could have. The reason the Raspberry Pi exists is to get cheap computers into the hands of kids and available in every classroom. Get the younger generations programming and experimenting and you have an army of budding software and hardware engineers ready to build the next Google or Apple in years to come. But the computing power on offer in such a cheap package means Raspberry Pi could impact more than just kids and schools. The hardware is more than capable of being a HTPC, it could replace more expensive home PCs, and I’ve already suggested the $100 PC is now viable.To classify the Raspberry Pi as a cheap PC for kids is to sell it very short. Just like Arduino opened up electronics to everyone, the $25 PC could become the heart of many a new product as well as redefining what we class as an affordable home computer.

Reallife glowing water life bar corresponds to ingame health and mana

first_imgSometimes, when you’re playing a game and the situation gets a little intense, you forget to pay attention to your health. In Terraria, danger is persistent, and you can often forget to look up at the top-right of your monitor while your house is being invaded during a goblin raid or Blood Moon zombie attack. So, like any sane person would do, modder Bfayer created a vertical tube filled with water that lights up different colors and changes its water level based on your in-game health and mana. Now, instead of having to look all the way up to the top-right of his monitor, he can just see the huge, glowing tube out of his peripheral vision, or estimate his health level based on the amount of glowing light emanating from rig.Dubbed the Liquid Lifebar, the rig currently only works with Terraria, and can display both the game’s health and mana bars, changing color to help differentiate between the two. As the in-game health or mana levels fall, so does the level of the water in the tube.Using everyone’s favorite microcontroller, an Arduino, Bfayer spent over 100 hours linking the game up to his water tube. He employed the use of an air pump — as can be seen from the water bubbles, if nothing else — as well as created some custom software in order to control the lights and water.Unfortunately, Bfayer said that the life bar is quite loud, and he isn’t planning on releasing build instructions for the device. So, you’ll just have to pay attention when you play Terraria rather than haphazardly get slaughtered by hardmode bats.last_img read more

Eusebio psyches Roma players ahead of Inter clash

first_imgRoma manager Eusebio Di Francesco has urged his players to overcome their psychological issues as they brace up to face Inter Milan on Sunday.“Diego Perotti and Javier Pastore are both available, but they cannot play from the start,” confirmed the Coach in his Press conference via Football Italia.Edin Dzeko, Stephan El Shaarawy, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Daniele De Rossi are out of action and could be on the sidelines for a while.“There is a UEFA study that shows there are statistically more injuries during this period of the season, when there are teams playing in multiple tournaments. Unfortunately, we had all these injuries at the same time.“Don’t think that because they earn a lot more money now, players can have 100 games per year. The tempo of the sport has increased and the quality level is far higher, so you need to step up the intensity of training and that can lead to injuries.“We’ve got to bring out something more from within ourselves. The defeat to Real Madrid showed we are still lacking something, including that bit of luck you need to put the ball in the back of the net.Chris Smalling open to a permanent AS Roma deal Andrew Smyth – September 6, 2019 Chris Smalling can “definitely see a longer-term future” for himself at AS Roma should things work out on his loan spell from Manchester United.“I was criticised for not using Patrik Schick enough, then criticised for using him. What do people want? We need everyone and at this moment, I am not in a position to make many choices. Patrik has to give more and above all believe in his own immense potential.“The psychological aspect becomes decisive at this level and that is where he needs to improve. We need strong men and therefore must help these men to feel stronger. I have to make them feel strong in their own minds.“The only area where I can make some choices is in defence. I don’t know if Federico Fazio will start, I could use three or four at the back. I’m working on both systems and we’ll see what is most opportune.“Last season there were different players, different teams. We didn’t deserve to lose against Inter, so I can only hope we replicate their good fortune and bring home a victory even when playing badly.“We owe the Roma fans something, but at the same time we still need their support.”last_img read more

Legislators Call For Statutory PFD To Be Paid In Full

first_imgGovernor Dunleavy: “It doesn’t follow the law, the law that’s been in effect for decades. That law is still in existence.”  The governor campaigned on a dividend funded under the formula set in a 1982 state law, which would be roughly $3,000. But the House of Representatives and the Senate passed a smaller amount of $1,600. The letter was sent to the governor on Friday. Among those who signed the letter is Homer Representative Sarah Vance: “Alaskans have spoken clearly that they want a full, statutory Permanent Fund Dividend. We believe that the PFD belongs to Alaskans, and that reverence for the law should not be diminished.” The full list of legislators who sigened the letter in support of the full PFD are: Senators Mia Costello, Shelley Hughes, Peter Micciche, Lora Reinbold, Mike Shower, Bill Wielechowski, and Representatives Ben Carpenter, Sharon Jackson, Gabrielle LeDoux, Laddie Shaw, Dave Talerico, Chris Tuck, and Sarah Vance.center_img Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A bipartisan group of legislators have sent a letter to Governor Mike Dunleavy reiterating their continued support for a full, statutory Permanent Fund Dividend.

Hanley Wood Breaks Into the Consumer Market With New Data Service

first_img MetroStudy has been collecting supply and demand data at the regional level, but the OnTarget launch adds consumer segment data to the mix.  OnTarget’s main purpose is to collect and provide data to the trade on buying trends down to the household. Hanley Wood’s MetroStudy group has collected 10,000 data attributes on more than 100 million of them. So for Hanley Wood, the new service enables the one-two punch that marketers are so desperate for these days—targeted execution and ROI. And the icing on the cake is it opens up a new way to capture marketing dollars for HW.  “Up to this point, this data has not existed in the new residential construction market,” says Reid. “The exciting part is that consumer segment level data unlocks a vast array of targeted marketing execution capabilities that we can deploy for clients allowing them to achieve much higher levels of ROI on their marketing spend.” In effect, says Hanley Wood CEO Peter Goldstone, the company is now able to not only match up buyers and sellers in a business-to-business context, but adds in the consumer buyer as well. Beyond that, the MetroStudy/OnTarget product captures the B2B holy grail—providing crucial, must-have insights that customers can’t get anywhere else.  But the new construction market has been relatively underserved from a data perspective. “As a result, industry participants have had extremely limited information with which they can use about the marketplace,” says Reid. “Marrying our data with consumer data to own the B2B supply chain and consumer activation is ground breaking,” he says. “Then marrying the data solution with the marketing services solution is the full end-to-end consumer targeting activation strategy.”center_img Others have been trying to crack this data challenge, too. Reid points to the emergence of services like Zillow that target the resale market with its pricing algorithm.  Andy Reid, Hanley Wood’s head of digital, explains: “At the heart of this complexity is the sheer volume of residential properties in the U.S., 100+ million in aggregate. Coupled with this sheer size is the fact that there is no one standard set of information about residential properties that span the entire U.S. Every state, county and municipality each has their own standards for reporting information about those residential homes.”  Hanley Wood has expanded its data services to the consumer market. With the launch of its OnTarget consumer intelligence platform, the company can now connect its construction equipment and manufacturing customers with supply chain end-users—the folks who are looking for homes to build or remodeling their kitchens. Using the service, Builders can identify consumers who are shopping for homes or are planning to remodel an existing one in a particular region. “Instead of buying a billboard on a highway, they get specific households to target,” says Goldstone.  MetroStudy has managed to smooth out the data challenges inherent in a market as complex as construction.  “It provides a totally unique proposition for Hanley Wood to go after the huge consumer marketing spend of our existing B2B clients that we previously didn’t have a proposition for,” says Reid.last_img read more
