Five bears released back into the wilderness of Fort St John

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Northern Lights Wildlife Shelter returned to Fort St. John with five bears in which they released back into nature after the bears’ rehabilitation was successful.The shelter has begun the annual release of their rehabilitated bears back into the areas in which the bears were originally rescued from.  Fort St. John has received three males and two females that were rescued and rehabilitated originally from this area.Angelica Langen, Northern Lights co-founder said it was a ‘Great trip with a great release site.” The shelter, located just east of Smithers, took in 32 black bear orphans and two grizzlies last year and now is the best time to release the bears back to the wild as food is abundant and aligns with the time in which mother bears would naturally push off their young.The cycle of rescuing and rehabilitation continues for the shelter. As of recent the Rescue has been to Fort St. John to receive young bear cubs to help give them a second chance at life.The NLWS runs solely on donations which is quite a feat as they have taken on the responsibility of rescuing, raising, rehabilitating and releasing these majestic creatures back to the locations in which they were found.The society is behind on their Annual Milk & Miles Fundraiser which is an essential campaign to ensure their program and society can continue to do the work they do.The ‘Milk’ refers to the intake of new cubs and the milk and food they will need to be nourished and grow and the ‘Miles’ refers to the gas required during transportation.Currently, there are 30 black bears and two grizzlies that require funding as they are being released currently across B.C., back to these bears home areas in which they were found. The two grizzlies are going back to Bella Coola which includes the gas to drive to the connecting point and $4000 per bear/ helicopter flight. Langen says they greatly appreciate anyone that shares their fundraising events as it is so important to them and the bears they continue to receive funding to continue rehabilitating and saving these bears.To view the FB Page; CLICK HERE To view the Website; CLICK HERE The NLWS is on the 3rd Season of their TV series, CLICK HERElast_img read more

Rabat – The Antwerp Court of Appeal ordered Belkacem’s Belgian nationality to be stripped on October 23, saying he represents a permanent threat to public security and breached his obligations as a Belgian citizen.Belkacem was jailed in 2015 as the leader of the “Sharia4Belgium” group that recruited jihadists, dozens of whom went to Syria.Belkacem’s lawyer, Liliane Verjauw, confirmed Belkacem’s appeal to the Belgian outlet Belga News Agency.

Iraq UN envoy discusses improving human rights

The meeting was part of a wide-ranging series of meetings Mr. Vieira de Mello, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative for Iraq, has been having with a full spectrum of Iraqi figures, leaders of neighbouring countries, UN relief agencies and non-government organizations as he assesses how best the UN can help restore Iraqi sovereignty and end the occupation.In his statement to the Security Council last Tuesday, Mr. Vieira de Mello said there had to be a clear timetable, laid out as soon as possible, for the earliest possible restoration of the country’s sovereignty. “Iraqis need to know that the current state of affairs will come to an end soon. They need to know that stability will return and that the occupation will end,” he told the 15-member body.

Steam travaille sur sa console de jeux

first_imgSteam travaille sur sa console de jeux ?Valve pourrait dévoiler à l’E3 2012, en juin prochain, sa propre console de jeux. L’éditeur de la plateforme Steam pourrait justement proposer une machine axée sur le jeu dématérialisé.”Si nous devons faire du hardware, nous le ferons”, déclarait Gabe Newell, fondateur et PDG de Valve et éditeur de la plateforme de jeu dématérialisé Steam. Selon The Verge, la société serait beaucoup plus avancée sur l’idée d’une console de jeux vidéo puisque les équipes de développement travailleraient sur une Steam Box, qui pourrait de plus être dévoilée dès cette année lors de l’E3 2012.Cette machine aurait deux axioms majeurs. Le premier serait la possibilité de faire tourner les jeux PC, même les plus gourmands, et les amener sur une télévision. Pour ce faire, on parle d’une fiche technique contenant un Core i7, d’un GPU nVidia, et de 8Go de RAM, et d’un partenariat avec un connaisseur de l’univers des machines développées pour le jeu, Alienware.La deuxième promesse que pourrait amener cet appareil, c’est bien entendu amener Steam au cœur du salon. La plateforme de jeux en ligne est un très gros succès dans le monde du jeu PC et pourrait trouver un nouveau terrain d’expansion en adaptant ses licences phares pour une utilisation à la manette.À lire aussiJouer à Tetris pourrait aider à soigner les yeux paresseuxValve offrirait des outils de développement ouverts aux développeurs et une politique commerciale en ce sens avec des accès facilités à des systèmes de cloud-gaming, comme OnLive. Un ensemble qui incluerait également des technologies standardisés et un renouvellement hardware tous les quatre ou cinq ans, évitant le redéveloppement à chaque mise à jour de la plateforme, comme c’est souvent le cas sur les appareils mobiles comme les smartphones.Le but de cette “Steam Box” n’est pas de concurrencer des acteurs déja bien installés comme Sony, Nintendo ou Microsoft…Mais bien Apple et sa future télévision connectée, qui, elle aussi, misera beaucoup sur sa boutique d’applications pour attirer ses utilisateurs. Gabe Newell, en octobre dernier déclarait à propose du constructeur américain: “Du côté plateforme, il est inquiétant de constater que le monde semble s’éloigner des supports ouverts. Ils construisent un joli truc brillant qui attire les utilisateurs, puis ils contrôlent l’accès des gens à ces choses.” Steam serait une alternative à une domination écrasante d’Apple et redoutée par Valve.Le 6 mars 2012 à 10:30 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Were All Neighbors Now Mr Rogers and YouTube Culture

first_imgStay on target 10 Classic Nickelodeon Episodes on NickSplatLooking Back at ’90s Nick: Rocko’s Modern Life Last weekend I took my family to see Won’t You Be My Neighbor, Morgan Neville’s brilliant documentary about the life and work of Fred “Mr.” Rogers. As a true early 80s kid, it hit me right in the feels and I low-level cried throughout. But it also left me thinking about how Mr. Rogers would fit in the present day, and what kind of legacy he left behind.The movie makes a lot of hay about how different Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood was to the children’s programming of the day, which was fast-paced, heavy on slapstick and light on any kind of emotional or intellectual connection. By welcoming you into his home and the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Fred Rogers made a personal link to the young minds watching his show, and the documentary shows that was on purpose. He wanted to create an atmosphere of acceptance and gentleness to give kids space for their imaginations to flower and their emotions to express themselves healthily. He wanted to be seen as a friend, not just an entertainer.There’s a scientific term that brain researchers use to describe this: “parasocial relationship.” It’s defined as a situation in which a person extends emotional energy towards someone who isn’t aware they exist. Obviously Mr. Rogers wasn’t communicating directly and exclusively to each and every viewer on the other side of the TV, but he says in an interview that when he’s working in the Neighborhood, he pretends that behind the camera is just one person that he’s speaking directly to. That kind of performance – eschewing theatrical traditions of playing to a broad audience in favor of something more focused – helped him communicate subtle ideas and emotions and bonded him to his viewers.I obviously haven’t watched Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood since I was a smol bean, but the movie and his directness still had me catching feels. The parasocial relationship that I developed with this Pennsylvania Presbyterian was potent enough that it stuck with me for decades.What’s interesting about Mr. Rogers’ exploiting this mental tendency is that he always did it with the well-being of his viewers in mind. He knew that children form powerful attachments with caregivers, and he wanted to be a responsible and helpful one. His shows were always trying to give kids the tools and strength they needed to handle their challenges kindly and morally. It was quite an achievement – he used the parasocial bond to serve as a mentor to millions.It’s easy to see the modern expression of this technique. Just click over to YouTube, and you’ll have your choice of vloggers of every variety looking right into the camera and welcoming you to their channel. You can build parasocial relationships left and right, and today’s youth are. In a 2017 survey commissioned by Google, 40% of millennial YouTube watchers said that their favorite vloggers understood them better than their real-world friends did.YouTube vloggers and celebrities, though, are leveraging their one-way emotional connections for very different reasons than Fred Rogers did. For the most part, they’re not interested in the emotional development or wellbeing of their viewers. While Mr. Rogers was working for publicly-funded PBS and didn’t need to worry about Nielsen ratings, these YouTubers live and die by their view count. The incentive is for them to get as many clicks as they possibly can.Also, the boundaries on consumption are very different. For children watching Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, they had 28 minutes five days a week to bond with Rogers and his world. But streaming media has made it possible for you to spend nearly as much time as you want, whenever you want, absorbing content from vloggers. That’s further eroding the barriers that prevent unhealthy attachment from developing.And those unhealthy attachments are already visible. There’s a great Kotaku article about fans taking their attachment to streamers too far, from showing up at their homes unannounced to SWATting them. There’s obviously something deeper happening here that our brains haven’t evolved a way to process yet. There’s a concept in neuroscience called “Dunbar’s number” that postulates that the human brain can only maintain around 150 stable social relationships. Parasocial interactions can replace real one-to-one mutual friendships with these one-way interactions.It’s important to note that there’s nothing innately unhealthy or unnatural about parasocial relationships. People develop them all the time to sports teams, celebrities, et al. But typically those relationships are fairly shallow simply due to the nature of interactions – when you’re emotionally invested in your team, you’ll watch a few games a week maybe from a distance. But YouTubers let you seem much closer.There are plenty of reasons I wish Fred Rogers were still alive and working in the modern world, but the most potent is that I’d want to see what he’d make of this environment where his style of direct, one-to-one communication has been so thoroughly hijacked for selfish purposes. I think it’d be one of the rare things that made him angry, and if you watch Won’t You Be My Neighbor you’ll see that he was incredibly effective when something made him angry.The genie’s out of the bottle on parasocial interaction, and there’s no turning back. But if even a fraction of today’s YouTubers and vloggers brought the kindness and consideration for their viewers that Mr. Rogers did, the world would be a better place.Watch MovieBob’s review of Won’t You Be My Neighbor.

Dell said the change freed up enough space on the 15-inch laptop to allow for a number pad. Narrower bezels around the displays shrank the overall footprint. But if you want it significantly smaller, a 13.3-inch version will also be available. Dell did not say what components would be used in the Black Edition and pricing wasn’t immediately available.

The hinge rotates so the pen remains accessible regardless of the position the screen is in. Close the screen to the keyboard and the pen is safely stowed inside. A pen garage is a seemingly small innovation, but having to hunt for a pen when you want to use it is a big sticking point for two-in-one users.

Eden Hazard scores a brace as Chelsea thrash Arsenal 41 in Europa

first_imgThe Blues doubled their lead when Pedro netted home a beautiful cross from Hazard at the one hour mark. With the two-goal cushion, Chelsea was looking invincible and Hazard took charge while Kante gave the Arsenal midfielders no space to move.  The third goal arrived in the 65th minute with the Belgium striker scoring his first of the night from the penalty spot after Aines Maitland Niles fouled Giroud by pushing him to the ground inside the box. The penalty by Hazard was not one of his best and Cech could have done better.Then, Alex Iwobi, who came on as a substitute for Lucas Torreira in the 69th minute scored a blinder of a goal to give the Gunners’ fans something to cheer for. He scored through a half volley from outside the box and by the outside part of his foot. This goal revived some hopes for the Islington based side.But the man of the night Hazard finished the match off much to the dismay of the Arsenal fans by scoring in the 72nd minute through a one-two with Giroud.This defeat for the Unai Emery-managed side meant that they lost out on a Champions League spot for next season and they will be back to play the Europa League again in 2020. Emery’s hopes of breaking the 25-year-old European trophy drought for Arsenal failed this time. He will look forward to win the coveted trophy next season but this loss will affect his transfer window plans.For Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri, this victory marked his maiden triumph as a manager. He is probably going to the Turin giants Juventus next season but his term ends with the Blues on a perfect note after having troubles with some players throughout the past season. Belgian striker Hazard has probably ended his Chelsea career like the way he wanted. His stint for seven years with the Blues concluded, if it has, on a high note. His probable next destination is Real Madrid. Petr Cech ended his career on a lowReutersPetr Cech, on the other hand, ended his playing career on a sad note. The goalkeeping legend wouldn’t have wanted this. It was a nightmare for him on the pitch but he made some vital saves to provide temporary respite to the Gunners. However, on the night, it was far from proving enough. Chelsea beat Arsenal 4-1 with Hazard scoring a braceReutersEden Hazard scored a brace and assisted in another goal as Chelsea thrashed Arsenal 4-1 in the Europa League Final at Baku, Azerbaijan on May 29. The Blues played out a dull first half but did not let their opponents take charge in the second half of the match. The star of the night was undoubtedly Hazard who contributed a stellar performance in probably his last match for Chelsea.The game was played out in front of a very small crowd as Uefa had only alloted 5000 tickets for the Arsenal and Chelsea fans. The rest of the gallery was half full and the atmosphere was not up to the mark. The first half of the match was rather uneventful as both teams were not creating  chances and playing out a bland game.The match burst open in the second half with Chelsea striker Oliver Giroud, after wasting two great chances in the first half, opened the scoring by glancing home a fine header from Emerson’s cross against his former club in the 49th minute. Emerson who was silent throughout the first half delivered a perfect cross and Giroud left Petr Cech with no chance to make a save.last_img read more

Chrome has a massive copycat extensions problem

first_imgChrome has a massive copycat extensions problem by Martin Brinkmann on October 11, 2017 in Google Chrome – Last Update: October 11, 2017 – 16 commentsYou have probably read about the fake Adblock Plus extension that 37000 Chrome users installed before it was removed by Google after it was reported to the company.The verification system of the Chrome Web Store is automated which means that any extension that passes automatic validation will be published in the store. Google won’t do anything about it unless it is reported by users, developers, or security researchers.There have been plenty of incidents in the past where Chrome extensions would be used to inject ads, hijacked, updated and then misused, or run crypto mining operations.We talked about precautions that users should take before installing Chrome extensions in 2014, how to  verify extensions for Chrome, and about the Chrome fake application problem in 2015.Nothing has changed on Google’s side of things. Chrome extension submissions are still vetted automatically only, and incidents like the recent fake Adblock Plus extension that found its way into the store highlight that the protection can be bypassed. The extension was listed for weeks in the store, and it was used apparently to display aggressive advertising campaigns.The fake extension hoped on the bandwagon of one of Chrome’s most popular extensions, the adblocker Adblock Plus. Adblock Plus has more than 10 million Chrome users according to the Chrome Web Store, and fake extensions that look as if they are the real deal may get a small piece of the pie when they make it into the web store.Google removed the extension, but the problem is not going away if Google reacts after the fact only.If you search for ublock right now in the Chrome Web Store for instance, you get a dozen or so extensions returned. While the official uBlock Origin is the first listed extension, you find extensions with names such as uBlock Adblock Plus, uBlock Adblocker Plus, uBlock for YouTube, or uBlock Ultimate Adblocker listed there as well.Some of these have thousands of user ratings and millions of users. It is unclear if these extensions are fake, or simply hopping on the bandwagon of popular extensions by using similar names.Raymond Hill, the developer of uBlock Origin, warned in June 2017 about these copies.Beware: plenty of copies of top blockers popping up in Chrome store w/ (at best) absolutely NO added value. Avoid, stick to the genuine onesMany of the extensions listed right now when you search for uBlock are copies of the original. They take the open source code of the extension, and create a new extension out of it that usually comes without any added functionality. The worst case is that invasive code is added that shows advertisement, tracks user movement on the Internet, or does other unwanted things.Google announced yesterday that it is aware of the broader situation, and that it looks at ways to handle this better to ” improve our protection and keep users safe from malicious Chrome Extensions and Apps”.More broadly, we wanted to acknowledge that we know the issue spans beyond this single app. We can’t go into details publicly about solutions we are currently considering (so as to not expose information that could be used by attackers to evade our abuse fighting methodologies), but we wanted to let the community know that we are working on it.The company did not reveal how it plans to do that though, nor provided a timeline of when users can expect the new or improved system.Microsoft vets any extension that is developed for the company’s Microsoft Edge browser before it is allowed in the Store. Mozilla does manual reviews of extensions as well, but will change the system for WebExtensions to do the reviews after they have been submitted to Mozilla AMO opposed to doing them before that.SummaryArticle NameChrome has a massive copycat extensions problemDescriptionGoogle’s Chrome Web Store has a massive problem with copycat extension listings that hop on the bandwagon of popular extensions for the Chrome browser.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

The football federation also listed the names of five officials, including Walter López, who called the suspect penalty on Roy Miller in the loss to Mexico, that it requests never be assigned to a Costa Rican match again.Secretary General Rafael Vargas Brenes signed off on the letter that reads as a list of indictments against CONCACAF officiating, citing examples of improper refereeing from as far back as 2011.“We consider that Costa Rica has been directly affected by the poor work of the officials and we present as evidence, an analysis of the irregularities that occurred in our national team’s games, in search of a clear and conclusive response on the part of your Executive Committee,” the letter reads.Original story continues here:As international football remains clouded by allegations of corruption within its highest governing body, two officiating controversies in four days at the Gold Cup have cast even more doubt over the sport’s integrity.One high-ranking official at Costa Rica’s Football Federation (FEDEFUTBOL) said he’s had enough and wants the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) to restructure it’s referee committee.The request follows questionable calls in Mexico’s favor throughout the Gold Cup tournament, namely a 121st minute yellow card in Sunday’s match against Costa Rica and Wednesday night’s debacle in which referees awarded a pair of penalty kicks to Mexico in its 2-1 win over Panama.“The damage this has done to football at the world level and at the level of CONCACAF is going to take many years to repair,” FEDEFUTBOL treasurer Rodolfo Villalobos told television reporters on Thursday afternoon. “But now is the time to begin this reparation process.”Watch officials hold back livid Panamanian players after the team’s loss to Mexico on Wednesday following two controversial penalty calls., who also serves on CONCACAF’s referee committee, said he would hand in his resignation if the necessary changes aren’t made to improve the region’s officiating.“If immediate restructuring is not made then I’ll be presenting them with my resignation,” Villalobos said. “There’s no point in continuing there as a waste of space practically.”When reached by The Tico Times, FEDEFUTBOL press representative Cristian Williams said the federation was analyzing the situation and preparing notes and videos that could be sent to CONCACAF as part of a formal complaint.The first supposed penalty in the Mexico-Panama Gold Cup game: ¡CONCACAF, VERGUENZA MUNDIAL!— Fútbol (@Futbool_Fotos) July 23, 2015 Mientras tanto en las oficinas de la FIFA y de CONCACAF— Sopitas (@sopitas) July 23, 2015 Related posts:It’s ‘Murder She Wrote’ as Reggae Boyz knock US out of Gold Cup Another Gold Cup scandal: ‘CONCACAF es una vergüenza’ Mexico defeats Jamaica 3-1 in Gold Cup final CONCACAF to review refs after Gold Cup furorcenter_img The federation’s gripe follows a similar complaint from Panama, which is calling for widespread changes among the referee committee. Panamanian Football Federation leaders submitted an official request to CONCACAF early Wednesday morning, saying officials robbed them of a spot in the Gold Cup finals with a series of bad calls.“What happened on Wednesday in the semi-final against Mexico was the last straw in a repetitive situation that has been taking place since our team’s first game,” read a release from the Panamanian Football Federation. “It’s imperative that these changes are made in order to move forward and take football back to being a clean game.”Memes critical of CONCACAF and FIFA have exploded on social media.
