first_imgEarlier today we posted about a rumor first aired by 3DRealms’ George Broussard that Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) was about to make big cuts to both its staff and studios. That rumor has turned out to be true with SOE confirming the news in an e-mail to Gamasutra.In total, 205 jobs will be lost with the Denver, Seattle, and Tucson studios all being closed down. The other bad news is Sony has decided to cancel the online game The Agency which has been in development for several years now.AdChoices广告The good news for existing SOE game players is that all existing titles will remain live and you can continue to play them as normal. As for future game development, two MMOs will now be the focus. The first is based on the PlanetSide IP, and the second on the always-popular Everquest IP.Fewer projects mean less people required and ultimately fewer studios have work, hence the closures. As far as an impact on gamers is concerned, the only noticeable difference is that The Agency will no longer be appearing on store shelves.Read more at GamasutraMatthew’s OpinionDevelopment of The Agency must have been experiencing problems or had fallen way behind schedule. It has been in development since 2007, and you don’t invest 4 years in a project then cancel it without a very good reason. It sounded like a very promising title from what we have heard over the years.It’s also surprising that SOE would choose to do the PlanetSide sequel instead of finishing The Agency, but again, this could be down to problems on that project we don’t know about.For existing players this news has probably come as a relief. The games you play regularly aren’t going anywhere, and the best thing you can do to support them is extend your subscription.last_img read more

first_imgThe ongoing trials of Arthur Psichogios and Tony Golossian, accused of sexually assaulting two Greek Australian women whom they had convinced were ‘cursed’, does not reflect superstitious beliefs commonly held in the Greek community, according to a university professor. One of the female victims, who in 2008 reported to police that she had been raped and had been convinced by “holy man” Tony Golossian that she was cursed by black magic which would cause cancer and death in her family. In order to break the curse, the 39 year-old mother paid for prayer sessions with Golossian, during which she was blindfolded and sexually assaulted but assured it was only a dream. For months she and her husband were bombarded with phone calls from demonic-sounding voices. One, calling itself “Red Evil”, instructed her to have sex with Golossian’s friend, Arthur Psichogios, as a “test”. A year earlier, a 29 year-old woman, also from Sydney, had given police an almost identical account of assaults by Golossian and Psichogios, according to reports in the Sydney Morning Herald.The second victim was also terrified by talk of curses and black magic and spent up to $100,000 over four years on prayer sessions, trusting they would spare her family from cancer and save her younger sister’s life. While these cases may suggest Greek superstition is still strong within the community, Professor of Modern Greek at Flinders University, Michael Tsianikas said this is not the case. “In the traditional and uneducated Greek society (before the 1950s, in the rural area) there were many traditions of superstition,” Prof. Tsianikas told Neos Kosmos. “After and before the Greek Revolution (1821) there was a systematic attempt, in particular from various intellectuals from the Greek Diaspora, to “enlighten” the Greek minds, through education. One of the most important themes discussed for decades was the idea to liberate the Greeks of any superstitious beliefs,” he added. During these strong debates, matters regarding religion – and when religion is or is not a superstition – were vividly discussed. “After decades of education and “enlightenment”, the Greek society was almost free of any systematic practice regarding superstition,” Prof. Tsianikas said. “What happened in Sydney is totally different and a case of particular analysis… the Greek nation and the Greeks are freely spirited minds and there are only few, rare exceptions – and nothing else,” he said. Convicted in December after a four-month trial, Golossian, 63, and Psichogios, 40, are in custody awaiting sentence. The District Court heard sentencing submissions earlier this month.

first_imgLe risque juridique expliquerait la hausse du nombre de césariennesAlors que le nombre de césariennes pratiquées en France ne cesse de croître chaque année, les obstétriciens expliquent cela par la peur du procès et de l’attaque en justice.Le Syndicat national des gynécologues-obstétriciens français (Syngof) explique que le nombre croissant de césariennes est lié à un certain risque juridique. Le secrétaire général du Syndicat a fait savoir à la Fédération hospitalière de France à travers une lettre : “Si un taux croissant de césariennes est constaté, il est surtout la conséquence de conduites ‘défensives’ des obstétriciens, dont la couverture assurantielle reste insuffisante”.Cette lettre fait suite à la volonté affichée dernièrement par la Fédération hospitalière de France de largement diminuer les actes chirurgicaux superflus, la césarienne pouvant alors en faire partie selon-eux. Ainsi, le docteur Jean Marty ajoute dans sa lettre que les praticiens ont peur des indemnisations qui “atteignent ou dépassent les plafonds de garantie pour les montants définitifs” qui peuvent alors être en plus ré-ajustés par rapport à l’inflation. Pour le Syngof, le risque d’attaque en justice et de devoir un jour verser des indemnisations est trop grand pour prendre le moindre risque en évitant une césarienne.Le 29 décembre 2010 à 10:53 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgCancer du pancréas : des bactéries radioactives pour traiter efficacement la maladie ?Des bactéries de listéria rendues radioactives pourraient permettre de traiter efficacement le cancer du pancréas en infectant les cellules cancéreuses.Des recherches menées sur des souris ont permis à des chercheurs de traiter sélectivement les cellules malades issues d’un cancer du pancréas. Comment ? En utilisant des bactéries appartenant au genre listeria et rendues radioactives. L’étude publiée cette semaine dans la revue Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) indique que les bactéries ont réduit fortement le nombre de métastases chez des souris développant un cancer agressif du pancréas.À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Mais c’est surtout la capacité sélective de ce nouveau traitement radiologique qu’ont mis en évidence les auteurs précisant que les tissus sains ont été laissés intacts. “Nous sommes encouragés, car nous avons pu réduire de 90% le nombre de métastases avec la première série d’expériences”, explique Claudia Gravekamp, professeur adjoint de microbiologie et d’immunologie à la faculté de médecine Albert Einstein de New York et principal auteur de ces travaux. Selon elle, “avec davantage d’améliorations, notre approche a le potentiel d’ouvrir une nouvelle ère de traitement du cancer métastatique du pancréas”.Il faut dire que le cancer du pancréas est un des plus mortels qui soit avec une chance de survie à cinq ans de 4% seulement. Ainsi, sur les 45.220 nouveaux cas de cancer du pancréas prévus pour être diagnostiqués cette année aux États-Unis, 38 460 personnes en mourront, estime l’Institut national américain du cancer (NCI). Le principal obstacle à l’élimination du cancer du pancréas est la nécessité de s’y attaquer à un stade précoce. Or, cela est rarement le cas car il n’entraîne généralement que peu de symptômes et est donc détecté tardivement.Le seul traitement de ce cancer restant la chirurgie, la nouvelle approche par des bactéries listeria rendues radioactives est une véritable nouveauté très prometteuse. Cette fois, “les cellules cancéreuses sont directement attaquées et détruites”, ont encore assuré les chercheurs.Le 25 avril 2013 à 19:43 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgBurdened by problems of bad-loans and subsequent stress on capital, state-run banks lost their market share in loan disbursal during 2015-16 year, reported the Mint. Their outstanding credit fell by around four percentage points from 50.06 percent in March 2015  to 46.43 percent in March 2016.Private sector banks, on the other hand, upped their market share by four percent to 24.04 percent during 2015-16.Except State Bank of India and its associate banks, which witnessed a slight 0.15 percent increase in their lending, the rest of the public sector lenders saw their overall credit market share fall to a 12-year low. It was in September 2004 quarter that these banks had their lowest ever market share of 49.29 percent.With a 1.37 percent growth in credit disbursal, the March quarter was also the lowest of quarterly growth, reported the Mint, citing Reserve Bank of India (RBI) data available till 2003.Incidentally, it was the RBI’s review of asset quality that resulted in identification of many bad loan-laden state-run banks during 2015-16. Their gross non-performing assets (or bad loans) jumped 95 percent for the period on higher provisions to service those loans and thereby converting their net profits to net losses.Even if these banks had the requisite bandwidth to expand further lending, the scope was limited as their identification had pulled down their already down capitalisation level, according to the report.DepositsMarket share of total deposits held by state-run banks too fell to 48.32 percent in March 2016 from 50.95 percent in a year ago period.last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: Days after losing her cool on BJP activists chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and front ranking leaders of her Trinammol Congress changed their display picture on social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook to ‘Jay Hind, Jay Bangla on Sunday night. Earlier in the day, Banerjee in a detailed Facebook post accused the BJP of mixing religion with politics and urged people to deter any sort of chaos and unrest. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata The picture of Trinamool’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts also were changed to ‘Jay Hind, Jay Bangla’ with pictures of Mahatma Gandhi, revolutionary leaders Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh, Matangini Hazra, Nobel laureate poet Rabindranath Tagore, and rebel poet Kazi Nazrul Islam. Photos of leading 19th century Bengal Renaissance figures like Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar, Raja Ram Mohan Roy, as also religious and social thinker Swami Vivekananda and father of Indian Constitution B R Ambedkar were also part of the new display pictures. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in state Banerjee and other Trinamool leaders had changed their social media DPs to display a photo of Vidyasagar, after a bust of the venerated champion of women’s emancipation was demolished in connection with unrest related to BJP chief Amit Shah’s election roadshow in Kolkata last month. “Jai Sia Ram, Jai Ram ji ki, Ram Naam Satya hai etc. have religious and social connotations. We respect these sentiments. But BJP is using religious slogan Jai Sri Ram as their party slogan in a misconceived manner by way of mixing religion with politics,” Banerjee wrote in her Facebook post. “We do not respect this forcible enforcement of political slogans on others in the name of so-called RSS which Bengal never accepted. This is a deliberate attempt to sell hatred ideology through vandalism and violence which we must oppose together”. Clarifying that she has no issues with any party slogan, she wrote: “I have no problem, regarding any particular slogan of political parties in their rallies, and for their party purpose. Every political party has their own slogan. My party has Jai Hind, Vande Mataram. The Left has Inquilab Zindabad. Others have different slogans. We respect each other.” The Trinamool Congress supremo said one cannot “fool” the people all the time. She warned everyone against divisiveness being spread in Bengal. “This is high time that proper action is taken to restrain political workers not to indulge in activities of creating unrest, chaos, violence and disruption of normal life by taking recourse to misplaced ideologies in the so-called name of religion to create a divide among the people. If all other political parties start resorting to these sort of divisive and disruptive activities, then the entire environment would become highly vitiated and counterproductive,” she said. She urged people to oppose such moves of BJP very strongly in order to keep the secular character of the country as enshrined in the Constitution. “I appeal to all the people of the country and the state to give a befitting reply to hatred politics and show respect to our country’s glorious culture and heritage. Let us all be proud of our culture and heritage. Jai Hind, Jai Bangla, Joyo He,” Banerjee added. She said BJP is trying to spread ideology of hatred through a section of the media. “The so-called BJP media and so-called fake video, fake news, misinformation and disinformation to create confusion and to suppress truth and reality,” she wrote.last_img read more

first_imgGoogle reCAPTCHA v3 without user interaction launches by Martin Brinkmann on October 30, 2018 in Companies, Google, Internet – 48 commentsGoogle unveiled a new version of the company’s reCAPTCHA service yesterday that aims to make the service more user friendly and provide webmasters with better options when it comes to dealing with unwanted traffic.Chance is, that any Internet user encountered a number of captcha verification prompts in the past. These are designed to verify that the visitor is indeed human and not a bot. A sign-up page is a prime example for captcha use; websites don’t want bots to register accounts automatically and to prevent that from happening, may add captchas to the page to throw bots off while keeping human visitors on the site.Captcha solutions have a number of problems associated with them: the percentage of false positives is high and it is sometimes difficult or even impossible to decipher the text that you are asked to enter; this leads to user frustration.Google reCAPTCHA v3via xkcdGoogle hopes to make things better with the release of reCAPTCHA v3. When Google launched the first version of the verification tool all users had to pass the captcha test to continue on to the site or action. Google added signals to the second version of the test which made about half of the users pass without having to enter a captcha.The third-version changes things around completely as it is now putting webmasters in charge when it comes to the display of captchas. Instead of displaying a captcha to a user right away, reCAPTCHA v3 computes a score that tells the webmaster how likely it is that a visit is made by a human or bot.Now with reCAPTCHA v3, we are fundamentally changing how sites can test for human vs. bot activities by returning a score to tell you how suspicious an interaction is and eliminating the need to interrupt users with challenges at all. reCAPTCHA v3 runs adaptive risk analysis in the background to alert you of suspicious traffic while letting your human users enjoy a frictionless experience on your site.Webmasters get new options and more control over the process. They may set the threshold that determines when visitors are let through to the site automatically, may add custom signals to the detection, e.g. if a user has an account on the site, and may use the signals to train machine learning algorithms.Webmasters may set up thresholds and define the type of verification that they require from the visitor, e.g. to use two-factor authentication or phone verification.Closing WordsThe changes introduced in reCAPTCHA v3 need to be implemented by web developers before users will benefit from the new approach. The new system should reduce the number of captchas that users are exposed to. Ultimately, it depends on the web developer and the set threshold whether the new system will indeed be more favorable to Internet users.Now You: How often do you encounter captchas on the Internet?SummaryArticle NameGoogle reCAPTCHA v3 without user interaction launchesDescriptionGoogle unveiled a new version of the company’s reCAPTCHA service yesterday that aims to make the service more user friendly and provide webmasters with better options when it comes to dealing with unwanted traffic.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

The department also has gone on to say whatever happened may have happened on the actual satellite.To get the satellite spinning so fast, I think it must have been shooting out gas of some kind – either one of its actual rocket thrusters got stuck on, or possibly the super-cold liquid helium boiled off and acted as if it was a rocket thruster. The cooling system’s been working fine for a few weeks (and apparently some of the data that’s been returned is scientifically exciting) so maybe the stuck thruster is the most likely guess. But it’s just a guess.Recovering Hitomi and reviewing the data would be groundbreaking in terms of forwarding x-ray spectroscopy, a technique used by astronomers to study cosmic x-ray sources.It remains uncertain if JAXA will be able to recover Hitomi, but they are not prepared to call it a lost cause just yet. Last month, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) launched a $273 million black hole satellite into space to further investigate the mysteries outside our atmosphere. However, earlier this week, the satellite disappeared without a trace, and now has suddenly reappeared.Video of the Hitomi was shot by astronomer Paul Maley in Arizona, and it shows the satellite tumbling through space.

first_imgLondon, UK – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle MagazineEthical emerald mining company Gemfields and the World Land Trust, working with eight of the world’s premier designers, have created a one-of-a-kind “pop-up” collection of bespoke emerald jewelry. The collection was designed to raise awareness and funding for the World Land Trust’s “Indian Elephant Corridor” project. The pieces will be displayed around the Emerald Queen—a life-size fiberglass elephant adorned with Gemfields Zambian emeralds and designed by Sabine Roemer—which will form part of the London Elephant Parade from May to July 2010.As India’s farmlands and cities continue to expand, the Asian elephant experiences widespread habitat loss. As the home of 60% of the world’s remaining Asian elephant populations, protecting habitats in India is key to the survival of the species as a whole. The World Land Trust works to preserve traditional migratory routes for these elephants so that they can move safely between national parks and other protected areas.Eight world-class designers were chosen from across the globe to create unique jewelry that incorporates a Gemfields Zambian emerald at the center. Gemfields focuses on ethically-sourced Zambian emeralds that follow the highest standards in fair-trade, environmental, social and safety practices. Gemfields’ special mine-to-market capability ensures the provenance of every gem through a full disclosure and certification program. The deep green of these gems and the company’s socially conscious nature makes the collaboration with the World Land Trust a perfect pairing.Each jeweler crafted a single piece, using the elephants and the lush corridors they inhabit as inspiration. The participating UK-based talents include cutting-edge designer Shaun Leane and celebrity favorite Theo Fennell, along with up-and-coming names like Dominic Jones. Other featured designers include Turkey’s Sevan Bicakci, Australian South Sea pearl company Autore, represented by Alessio Boschi, and Gem Palace, the renowned court jewelers to the Moghul emperors in India.The collection is currently on view in the Selfridges Wonder Room until June. On June 22nd, Sotheby’s will auction off the pieces in an exclusive event, with a percentage of profits from each jewel going towards the World Land Trust’s “Indian Elephant Corridor” project.Visit www.gemfields.co.uk for more information.last_img read more

and six series “Our batsmen have been more the issue in the sub-continent they don’t know whether to attack or to defend At times they look like they over-attack and at times they look like they over-defend – there’s no in-between” he told cricketcomau “In Sri Lanka it just seemed that they went really hard or they just closed up shop And they tried different things but it didn’t work so they have to come up with a plan of ‘okay what shots are we going to play to keep the score rotating’” McGrath added On their last sojourn to the sub-continent the Aussies werespanked by Sri Lanka as they went down in a heap on one instance too many to lose the series 3-0 in a whitewash Moreover the best they could put together was 379 in the first innings of the third Test The problems for the

have that bounce you don’t have that seam you don’t have that carry Okay how are we going to take wickets The new ball will still carry through quite well so you’re looking to take wickets caught in

never lost to Pakistan in the World Cup Pakistan have a 4-0 record against India in limited over games at the Eden Gardens When they meet on Saturday history will be made one way or the other Pakistan’s impeccable record against India at the Eden gardens was achieved mostly because of the batting heroics of Salim Malik (1987) Imran Khan (1989) Salman Butt (2004) and Nasir Jamshed (2013) But most of these games were inconsequential played as they were as part of a bilateral series except the 1989 Nehru Centenary Cup match But the greatest India-Pakistan game is the one that was never played between the two sides at the Eden Gardens: the final of the 1987 World Cup When the Reliance World Cup co-hosted by the two neighbours began it was assumed that India and Pakistan were destined

very long time till the mid 80s India-Pakistan cricket suffered from the Shakoor Rana syndrome During the 70s and 80s every time India toured Pakistan fans at home feared the hosts would play with 13 players: 11 cricketers two umpires the deadly duo of Rana and Khizer Hayat When the two famous umpires walked out together with the 11 Pakistanis the only advice most fans could give the batsmen was to keep the pads away from the ball It didn’t matter where the ball pitched the running joke was that once it struck the pads Pakistani players would ask Rana-Hayat "Allah kidhar hai" and they would point their finger upwards sending the batsman to pavilion Pakistanis had similar doubts over the neutrality of Indian umpires Later when umpires became neutral the two sides became evenly matched

between India and Pakistan Indian radio stations suddenly stopped the live commentary While Dilip Vengsarkar and Sandeep Patil were battering the Pakistani bowlers news of the attack on Indian Prime

final—of the Benson and Hedges World Series (In one of these games L Sivaramakrishnan got Javed Miandad stumped off a leg-cutter labeled as the greatest ever bowled by an Indian) In 1986 Pakistan and Miandad gave India a return wound that would take ages to heal When Miandad struck Chetan Sharma for a six off the last ball of the Australasia Cup many Indian fans slipped into depressions for months By the time the 1987 World Cup came both sides were eager for badla: India for the last-ball six Pakistan for the twin defeats in Australia India were the defending champions Its batting line-up had legends like Sunil Gavaskar K Srikkanth Dilip Vengsarkar Mohd Azharuddin Kapil Dev Ravi Shastri and the emerging star of that tournament — Navjot Singh Sidhu Pakistan boasted of greats like Imran Khan Wasim Akram Javed Miandad Abdul Qadir and Saleem Malik So through the league games the mood in Pakistan was of arrogant overconfidence Every time the Pakistani team took the field the women in the stadium would start singing RD Barman’s famous song from Rocky ‘Aa Dekhe Zara Kis me Kitna Hai Dum’ Their stars obliged them by topping their group On 4 November when Pakistan met Australia in the semi-final at Lahore Steve Waugh carted Salim Jaffer for 18 runs in the last over of the innings Later Billy the Kid McDermott ran through the Pakistan innings and the co-hosts lost by 18 runs–the

Indians on the other hand were seeing the last of their batting great Sunil Gavaskar who like Imran had also decided to quit the game Both went home disappointed booed by spectators after the
