It looks like G-Form isn’t standing still and already updating its line of super-protective iPad cases. The iPad Extreme Sleeve 2, a second iteration of the G-Form iPad 2 sleeve, was released just last week, and the company has today announced plans for a new, high-end model next month.We really enjoyed watching G-Form vice president Thom Cafaro drop a 12-pound bowling ball from a height of three feet onto the iPad Extreme Sleeve, but G-Form thought it could go one better. The G-Form Extreme Portfolio case brings with it a number of improvements as well as a more extreme testing method.AdChoices广告Though it has the word “iPad” in the title, the Extreme Portfolio fits other tablets, too. Not only can you use it to protect an iPad or iPad 2, but it will work with the Motorola Xoom, or most other 10-inch device for that matter.Like the original iPad Extreme Sleeve cases, the Portfolio is lightweight, flexible, and water-resistant. Where it differs is through the inclusion of an internal pocket and an extra Reactive Protection Technology edge layer.G-Form’s trademarked RPT composite material absorbs over 90 percent of the energy of an impact which should protect that valuable tablet inside in most cases. Though flexible, the key to its protection is the fact it stiffens to act like armor during impact. The additional RPT also runs under the zipper to provide even more impact absorption.The Portfolio can be opened and used in a number of ways. The front cover can be reverse-zipped behind the iPad, offering two levels of RPT protection underneath the iPad. The screen is still protected this way by the RPT corners that hold it in place. The Portfolio can also be used as an easel in A-frame mode in both landscape and portrait configurations, so not only are you protecting your tablet, but you’re also able to prop it up to watch movies or use an app.The Extreme Portfolio for iPad is available for pre-order now for $79.95 with the first orders shipping out on August 11. Check out the video below to witness how serious G-Form is about the protection on offer.Read more at G-Form

Director Spike Lee, who won Best Adapted Screenplay for BlacKkKlansman at last night’s ceremony, reportedly attempted to leave the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and turned his back during the acceptance speeches after the 1960s drama took home the top Oscar gong.Green Book depicts the true story of African-American pianist Don Shirley’s journey through the Deep South accompanied by Italian-American bouncer Tony Vallelonga, played by Viggo Mortensen. The film has drawn criticism for portraying Vallelonga, a white person, in the lead role and has been accused by some of white-washing around race relations. Mortensen used the N-word at a press event in November and its director has admitted flashing actresses. Shirley’s family were also said to be not happy about the film.Speaking after the ceremony, Lee initially avoided answering a question asking for his reaction to Green Book’s win but then told reporters that “I thought I was courtside at the (Madison Square) Garden, and the ref made a bad call.”Lee, previously nominated for 1990′s Do The Right Thing, last night donned a purple suit in tribute to the late singer Prince. His win for BlacKkKlansman is considered long overdue. He was first nominated in 1990 and was given an honorary Oscar in 2016.At last night’s ceremony, Mahershala Ali won Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Shirley in Green Book while Regina King took home the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in If Beale Street Could Talk. Meanwhile, The Favourite, which had 10 Oscar nominations, took home just one award when Olivia Colman won Best Actress for her role as Queen Anne in the 18th century drama. 22 Comments Share26 Tweet Email 42,412 Views Louise Bagnall’s Late Afternoon – a production of Kilkenny’s Cartoon Saloon – went home empty-handed last night after losing out on Best Animated Short to Disney’s Pixar’s Bao.The other big winners on the night were Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody and Netflix hit Roma. Roma won Best Foreign Language Film, while director Alfonso Cuarón earned his third and fourth Oscars, winning Best Director and Best Cinematography for the film. Rami Malek took home the Best Actor Oscar for his role as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, with the film also taking awards for Best Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, and Editing. https://jrnl.ie/4511483 Feb 25th 2019, 10:51 AM Monday 25 Feb 2019, 10:51 AM read more

It also includes a landscaped outdoor play area.The Victorian Government contributed $1.6 million towards the hub as part of the $10 million boost in the Victorian Budget 2016/17, with the City of Whittlesea Council also contributing.Ms Mikakos was joined at the opening by Member for Thomastown, Bronwyn Halfpenny who is positive “this one stop shop gives the families of Wollert a range of early childhood services all under the one roof.”“Infrastructure projects such as these ensure local children’s services have the space and flexibility they need to deliver 15 hours of kindergarten alongside a range of other vital early years programs,” she said.These are just two of the many child care facilities the state government is investing in, with $60 million allocated to building and upgrading kindergartens and children’s centres.To add to the initiative, as of this year, $83.7 million is being delivered over four years to support improved educator-to-child ratios, which allows for more one-on-one time for each child.Applications for the 2016-17 Children’s Facilities Capital Program recently opened and close 12 August 2016.

61 dauphins pilotes s’échouent en Nouvelle-ZélandeNouvelle-Zélande – Selon les autorités environnementales néo-zélandaises, une soixantaine de dauphins pilotes (ou baleines pilotes) ont trouvé la mort après s’être échoués en début de semaine sur une plage de l’île sud. C’est sur la plage de Farewell Spit, à l’extrême nord de l’île sud de la Nouvelle-Zélande, que des promeneurs ont trouvé en début de semaine 61 globicéphales (également appelés dauphins pilotes ou baleines pilotes) échoués.

Port MacKenzie director Marc VanDongen says the load of cement – coated pipe proves the Port’s heavy lifting capabilities:“Each piece of pipe is 42 feet long and it weighs 10,500 pounds. So we were lifting four pieces of pipe at a time off the ship, 42, 000 pounds at a time, and placing them on flatbed trucks. “Download AudioIn March of this year, VanDongen told the Matanuska Susitna Borough Assembly that he wants more than 915 thousand dollars to run the Port this year. [fy15starts this month] That figure includes 135 thousand dollars for work on existing infrastructure that is to be paid for with a state grant. This year’s Port Mac operating budget is about the same as last year’s – close to 800 thousand dollars. Through advertisements on its webpage and elsewhere, the Borough has been promoting the Port as a necessity for the economic development of the area. Borough manager John Moosey says,“We have a tremendous opportunity, and we are really looking for being the answer to our post – oil economy here in Alaska. We want to take a lead in that and a partnership with the state of Alaska.” Moosey says this year, because of federal accounting system changes, the Port budget will be paid for with the Borough’s operating funds. Before that, Port expenses were paid out of an enterprise fund, which meets expenses through user fees.“Traditionally, Port MacKenzie had an enterprise fund. With the new GASB, which is the new accounting rules, for 2015, we are funding this out of our general operations, our general tax levy. When we can return the operations to cover expenses versus revenues, we will be flipping this back to an enterprise fund operation.” But, Moosey says, the Port’s profitability depends on a rail link to the Port from Houston. That link is under construction, but won’t be completed for some time… possibly not before 2018. Port MacKenzie has not turned a profit since 2008, when 451 tons of gravel was off loaded there. Van Dongen says that activity generated 832 thousand dollars profit in royalties, wharfage and dockage fees. Van Dongen says this month’s load of cement pipe is generating income, too. “It’s going to depend on how long the pipe is sitting on the dock. There’s a monthly charger per square foot that they are leasing the dock. They’re leasing an office in our terminal building. There’s wharfage, there’s dockage for when the pipe comes in and there is a different rate for when it goes out. Roughly, I’m estimating between 60 and 70 thousand dollars from this one operation. “ He, too, says that the rail link is vital to the Port’s continued economic health. But some have questioned whether or not the Borough is throwing money into a ditch.“It’s not feasible. It’s not economically viable.”That’s a comment from Grace Whedbee, a Big Lake homeowner. Whedbee is a contractor who works in ppost – disaster infrastructure recovery. She has written a report critical of Port MacKenzie, and has also has sided with local environmental groups in a lawsuit against construction of the rail link. Whedbee, who is a contractor, says it is unlikely that Port MacKenzie will ever make money, because of its location. Whedbee says currents at Port MacKenzie are too fast for the safety of big freighters, and that the ships have to travel further to get there than they do to get to the port in Seward. And she says if Alaska products are to be shipped out of state, it’s cheaper to ship them by railroad to Seward. “As taxpayers, we are going to continue to pay on this until someone wises up and says ‘How much more money are we going to put into it?’ I do not think that, long run, that port will ever be able to be a world port, that is used to ship around the world.” Let’s look at the recent shipment of cement covered pipe delivered to Port MacKenzie this month. The pipe was built in Korea, then sent to Mexico for the cement coating, before it was shipped to Alaska on a Panamanian flagged ship with a Chinese crew. Van Dongen says Port MacKenzie was the optimal destination because of the space available there for storing the pipe. He says near term plans are to expand the port’s customer base to include a fuel tank farm, and that negotiations are in the works with two companies interested in starting an LNG export operation at the Port.Borough manager Moosey says the Borough’s long term plan regarding the Port includes asking the state for money for a second dock.“That plan sits right in our capital improvement program. Essentially, we are planning that when the rail line is complete, activity will pick up greatly at Port MacKenzie and there will eventually be a need for additional dock space and transportation coming in. We don’t anticipate this happening for at least three or four years, and at that time, we’ll bring forth a plan to the state legislature or look at bonding options to make that happen. But that is farther out in the future.”Moosey says that that request won’t be made until the railroad link is complete. At that time, the Borough will firm up a marketing plan to attract more business to the Port. read more
Kasturi and Sandy.PR HandoutActress Kasturi Shankar, who is rumoured to be entering the Bigg Boss Tamil 3 house as a wild-card entrant, has spoken about each contestant of the show. Of all the comments, her views on Sandy, one of the people’s favourite participant this season, has drawn the viewers’ attention.Talking about the strategy, she said, “Sandy is a blue-eyed boy of Vijay TV. The channel knows in and out of him. It is also aware of his weaknesses. But till today, we have not seen his shortcomings in the show. I feel the channel wants showcase only positive side of him,”Kasturi claims that even Kamal Haasan has become a fan of Sandy and displaying special affection towards him. She adds, “He conveys his message jokingly. He would have become a villain if he had said it without a smiling face,”She alleges that Sandy has a strategy in place for every week and starts influencing people on various issues that includes nomination process. “Those things are not being aired and only positive aspects are being projected of him,” she points out.Kasturi feels most of the contestants are not perfect and everybody has their own strategy except for Mugen and Tharshan. In the interview, the actress feels pity for Cheran’s situation in the house as the four-time National Award-winning filmmaker has gone through a lot of humiliation from the inmates.Meanwhile, the actress, who has been repeatedly approached by Vijay TV to be a contestant on the show, is yet to confirm whether she has decided to enter the house this season.On the other hand, Reshma has been eliminated from Bigg Boss Tamil 3 much to the surprise of the audience, who were predicting Sakshi Agarwal to be out of the show on Sunday (4 August). read more
It’s usually pretty big news when Gabe Newell announces a new game, or When JJ Abrams announces a new television show or movie. The anticipation alone for the release of whatever was announced by either of these two is typically enough to power a building. Hearing — from their own mouths — that JJ and Gaben might be working together on a future project is almost more excitement than a geek could handle.At the DICE summit, Gabe Newell and JJ Abrams took to the stage to offer a brief keynote on storytelling in games and movies. Since the act of telling a story in a movie or television show is a little different than in a video game, you can imagine that JJ and Gabe have very different opinions on how a story should be told.Gabe Newell thinks that the person watching the movie wants to interact with the world they are in, while JJ Abrams feels that most people don’t really know what to do in an environment like that. Is it better to be the guy sitting on your couch shouting about how you would have done it differently, or the guy who gets bored half way through some important dialogue and decides to carve his initials in the wall with bullets?Maybe it’s a little of both, and maybe that’s why Newell and Abrams teased that they plan to try and work on something together in the future.It’s far from a solid commitment to make anything at all, but just knowing that these two heavyweights were involved would likely be enough to have people line up around the block for it. Whether it is JJ stepping into the Valve offices and working with Gabe and his crew on a game, or having an extra chair on the set of Abrams’ next smash hit that says Newell on the back, the idea of them working together is something that excites both of them. Whatever it is, we’re probably going to have to watch Star Trek: Into Darkness frame by frame to figure it out. read more

Many might have heard of the inspiration behind Aamir Khan’s character of Phunsuk Wangdu in the Bollywood blockbuster 3 Idiots – Sonam Wangchuk. The engineer and innovator is also an education reformer and had been awarded the ‘Rolex Award for Enterprise’ recently for his innovative vertical artificial glacier termed the ‘Ice stupas’. ‘Ice stupas’ are a blend of technology and tradition which help in irrigation and greening of cold dessert regions. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfSonam Wangchuk plans to open an innovative and alternative university in Ladakh at Fiang village and reform the current higher education system. Using the money won with the Rolex Award, Wangchuk declared that he would want to bring about reforms in higher education, as they have already done in primary education in Ladakh.“Our vision is that the effect of this University will be on the other universities. In Ladakh there is nothing specific for the mountains now, the mountain people there, feel lost. Therefore we will be setting up a University that will address issues of the mountain, where the youth can engage themselves in finding solutions that are real to the real life challenges faced there,” said Sonam Wangchuk. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe proposed university is supposed to be a doer’s institution which will be very practical and contextual and also answer the issue of unemployability amongst those who have acquired higher education. The university will mainly cater to the people in Ladakh, and to other residents of the mountains and then it will be for others. This education reformer believes in the 3Hs of Education rather than the commonly known 3Rs model. Instead of Reading, wRiting and aRithmetic, he thinks with a bright Head, a skilled Hand and a kind Heart, one becomes a complete human being and hence may contribute to a happier world which we all want. The vision of the university would be to provide students of Ladakh with a platform where they would be running various enterprises, the funds from which will play a major role in running the university. A fellowship programme is expected to start by 2017, so that by 2018 the first batch can be commenced. What would be the criteria for getting admission to the university? “It will be open based mostly on their passion for learning than on anything else. It would be open for mostly Ladakhis, then for students from the mountains and then for others, as we would like to cater to the region where it is located.”When asked what would be the fee structure, Wangchuk said, “Our vision is that there will be various enterprises run by the university, which will bring in revenues to sustain the university, so that the students get free or next to free education. It will be the sweat equity rather than currency that the students will be paying as a fee for the university. The school we have now is fully self-reliant as the students run it. Moreover, The Himalayan Institute of Alternatives aims to fill a gap and will change the face of higher education in India, the future of which has already begun.”The talk was hosted by Future Institute, and the event witnessed the presence of many distinguished intellects from diverse fields. The event had the gracious presence of Naeem Akhtar, Minister for Education, J&K, as the chief guest along with Nawaaz Rigzin Jora, Minister for Urban Development and Urban Local Bodies, J&K, Prof Ajay Mathur, Dr Ashok Khosla, and many others. read more

With the 30-year benchmark loan smashing new records, analysts for mortgage giant “”Freddie Mac””:http://www.freddiemac.com/ and finance Web site “”Bankrate.com””:http://www.bankrate.com/ chalked up the favorable rates to a wobbly Greece and unsettled concerns over euro zone markets.[IMAGE]Bankrate.com and Freddie Mac report the latest mortgage rates each week in separately issued weekly surveys and indices that cull information from the nation’s financial institutions.The GSE found rates for 30-year loans lingering around 60-year record lows, failing to buck 4.12 percent from last week by falling to 4.09 percent this week. Bankrate.com also offered new lows for the 30-year loan, reporting that rates collapsed to 4.32 percent this week from 4.35 percent last week.For 15-year fixed-rate mortgages, Bankrate.com found rates falling to 3.44 percent this week, while Freddie beheld a plunge by rates to 3.30 percent over the same period.
