Becoming the first Giants and A’s pitchers to surrender a home run in the same All-Star Game wasn’t the kind of history Will Smith and Liam Hendriks were looking to make Tuesday night.Both Bay Area relievers had their first All-Star Game appearances spoiled by the longball in Cleveland as they gave up the only two home runs at Progressive Field, where the American League prevailed 4-3 in the 90th All-Star Game.When Hendriks allowed a sixth-inning homer to the Rockies’ Charlie Blackmon and …
Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… klint finley In Cory Doctorow’s young adult novel Little Brother, the protagonist starts a wireless ad-hoc network, called X-Net, in response to a government crack-down on civil liberties. The characters use gaming systems with mesh networking equipment built-in to share files, exchange message and make plans.The Internet blackout in Egypt, which we’ve been covering, touches on an issue we’ve raised occasionally here: the control of governments (and corporations) over the Internet (and by extension, the cloud). One possible solution, discussed by geeks for years, is the creation of wireless ad-hoc networks like the one in Little Brother to eliminate the need for centralized hardware and network connectivity. It’s the sort of technology that’s valuable not just for insuring both freedom of speech (not to mention freedom of commerce – Egypt’s Internet blackout can’t be good for business), but could be valuable in emergencies such as natural disasters as well.Here are a few projects working to create such networks.Update:Here are four more projects. These are all a lot further along than the projects mentioned here.Wireless ad-hoc networking has been limited in the past by a bottleneck problem. Researchers may have solved this issue for devices with enough computational power. The U.S. military is also investing in research in this area.The OLPC’s XO has meshnetworking capabilities. And some gaming systems, such as the Nintendo DS, have mesh networking built in. But we want to look at projects that are specifically aimed at replacing or augmenting the public Internet.OpenetOpenet is a part of the open_sailing project. Openet’s goal is to create a civilian Internet outside of the control of governments and corporations. It aims to not only create local mesh networks, but to build a global mesh network of mesh networks stitched together by long range packet radio. See our previous coverage here.NetsukukuNetsukuku is a project of the Italian group FreakNet MediaLab. Netsukuku is designed to be a distributed, anonymous mesh network that relies only on normal wireless network cards. FreakNet is even building its own domain name architecture. Unfortunately, there’s no stable release of the code and the web site was last updated in September 2009.OPENMESHNot to be confused with the mesh networking hardware vendor of the same name, OPENMESH is a forum created by venture captalist Shervin Pishevar for volunteers interested in building mesh networks for people living in conditions where Internet access may be limited or controlled. Pishevar came up with the idea during the protests in Iran in 2009. “The last bastion of the dictatorship is the router,” he told us. The events in Egypt inspired him to get started.It’s a younger project than Openet and Netsukuku, but it may have more mainstream appeal thanks to being backed by Pishevar. It’s not clear how far along Openet is, and Netsukuku’s seems to be completely stalled so a new project isn’t entirely unreasonable. Update: One commenter points out that Netsukuku’s developers have checked in code as recently as two weeks ago, so although the site hasn’t been updated the project isn’t stalled.Others?Please let us know of any other similar projects, especially ones that are further along, in the comments or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.Photo by w?odi 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#cloud#Trends Related Posts

Manuel was apologetic for his spat with LA Tenorio at the 1:25 mark of the third quarter.Receiving a pass from Calvin Abueva down low, the 6-foot-4 bruiser went for an undergoal stab but lost his balance when the Ginebra guard tried to stop his shot from behind.

He was asking me whyI hit him when he was just trying to get me back up and I felt ashamed of what I did.

We’re happy with the win, but we need to be focused every game, be aggressive, and do what we’ve been doing over these last three games to our next games,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Slow and steady hope for near-extinct Bangladesh tortoises View comments NEXT BLOCK ASIA 2.0 introduces GURUS AWARDS to recognize and reward industry influencers 2 ‘newbie’ drug pushers fall in Lucena sting Read Next MOST READ Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC LATEST STORIES Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netANTIPOLO — Back to his hardworking self, Vic Manuel seemingly couldn’t do anything wrong when Alaska played Ginebra on Sunday.But as stellar as he was in the game, the 30-year-old forward still has one thing he wished he didn’t do.ADVERTISEMENT Globe Business launches leading cloud-enabled and hardware-agnostic conferencing platform in PH

BURNABY, B.C. – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau demonstrated a new virtual camera used by game makers at an Electronic Arts Canada studio near Vancouver on Thursday after promoting the country’s technology sector to officials in Washington state.Trudeau held the camera on his shoulder as two actors wearing special suits pretended to box at the company’s Capture Lab, an animation facility in Burnaby.The prime minister also attended a roundtable at Electronic Arts with business leaders from health care, clean technology, digital animation and visual effects.“We’re going to talk about how the government can be a better partner, or better get out of your way in some cases, to allow you to continue to grow, to succeed, to create great opportunities for innovations that are going to advance success in Canada, create good jobs for Canadians and draw in great people from around the world,” Trudeau said before the discussions began.Jon Lutz, vice-president of financial planning and strategy at Electronic Arts, said the company that has created some of the world’s most successful video games is always looking for the most qualified people.“We need the best people from all over the world so we welcome any strategies that grow the talent pool in Canada and enable us to compete on the global stage,” he said.“We certainly welcome greater collaboration with our partners in the U.S. and anything that helps build the talent base up in Vancouver,” Lutz said, adding the interactive entertainment industry is a key subsector of technology and could continue growing in Canada.Later Thursday, Trudeau attended a Liberal party fundraiser in downtown Vancouver, where he applauded local members for signing up 7,000 newcomers since last summer.Trudeau called on his supporters to keep working hard as he warned about the momentum that upcoming leadership races could give the party’s rivals.“We’ve got competition. The Conservatives are electing a new leader next weekend. The NDP will do the same later this year. And history has shown that these things matter,” he said, speaking to a room of a couple hundred people.Outside the venue, protesters carried signs calling for an end to Kinder Morgan’s proposed Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, whose terminus is in Burnaby, and to the Site C hydroelectric megaproject in the province’s north.Earlier in the day, Trudeau met Washington Gov. Jay Inslee in Seattle where they discussed the development of the Cascadia Innovation Corridor, an initiative that aims to strengthen technology industry ties between British Columbia and Washington.The pair also spoke about trade, investment opportunities and innovation in the energy sector, said Trudeau’s office. In brief remarks before the meeting, the prime minister said Washington and Canada share common goals.“We’re both strongly engaged on issues of climate change, on issues of openness to trade, on leadership on refugees as well and an understanding that diversity can be a real source of strength,” he said.Inslee said the state and country share an “incredible commitment” to defeating climate change and a recognition that they can grow their economies at the same time.“It is a great pleasure to know we have a national leader in the North American economy that is committed to that,” he said.But protesters clad in yellow hazardous material suits that read “Keystone XL Toxic Cleanup Crew” gathered outside the hotel to criticize Trudeau’s environmental record, arguing his support of pipelines is at odds with any global warming promises he has made.Chanting “Tar sands or clean lands, Trudeau you have a choice,” the group of about a dozen people demanded that the prime minister rescind his support of Keystone XL and the Trans Mountain expansion, two pipelines that have generated considerable debate in the U.S.Janene Hampton of the Colville Okanagan Tribe in northern Washington said Trudeau claims he cares about indigenous people yet he sides with companies that want to build pipelines that threaten the water sources of Aboriginal Peoples.“He’s approving these pipelines and the things that they’re asking for. He’s supporting the corporations. He says that he’s an indigenous peoples’ ally. Well, that’s not being an ally,” she said.Protester Mike Foster said he’s especially concerned about the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion from Alberta to the West Coast and the impact that increased tanker traffic will have on Washington state’s endangered killer whale population.“We have 78 orca whales left in Puget Sound and the number of tankers coming through these waters would be increased 700 per cent,” he said.Kinder Morgan Canada’s $7.4 billion pipeline expansion, approved by Trudeau’s government last year, would increase the number of tankers in coastal waters from about five per month to 34 per month.In 2015, former U.S. president Barack Obama rejected the Keystone XL pipeline, which would run from Alberta to Nebraska, but President Donald Trump overturned the decision this year.— With files from Laura Kane in Seattle.
The Canadian Press MONTREAL — Guzzo Cinemas is looking to expand beyond Quebec to other major Canadian cities.The Montreal-based cinema chain says it has been looking for opportunities in areas including Vancouver and Calgary.Guzzo Cinemas president Vince Guzzo says he’s hoping the expansion will allow him to take advantage of opportunities in other cities and find new synergies for his business, which also includes a construction company and Giulietta Pizzeria restaurants.Despite the struggles theatre businesses have faced in recent years with the growth of streaming services, Guzzo says the industry is “booming” and he feels the streaming is only causing consumers to seek more personal ways to take in films.Guzzo Cinemas expansion will put the company in competition with entertainment giant Cineplex Inc., which owns over 150 theatres.To counteract box office volatility and streaming companies, Cineplex has diversified its offerings beyond cinemas with gaming restaurant complexes the Rec Room and Playdium.

Washington: Over $600,000 has been raised in just eight days through crowd-funding for the treatment of a 13-year-old Indian-American girl fighting for her life after an Iraq war veteran in California mowed her and her family in a suspected case of hate crime. On April 23, Dhriti Narayan, a grade 7 student, her brother, father and other family members were crossing a road in Sunnyvale when they were struck down by a former soldier, Isaiah Peoples, 34, reportedly to be suffering from Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportPeoples, an Iraq war veteran, injured seven others, who were crossing the road, including Dhriti’s father and her 9-year-old brother. The family was targeted apparently in hate crime because the motorist thought they were Muslims, police said. Peoples, who was unharmed in the incident, is facing eight counts of attempted murder and is being detained at Santa Clara County Jail with no bail set. According to a crowdfunding page, GoFundMe, set up to help the family cover her medical costs, Dhriti has suffered life threatening injuries including severe brain injuries and is currently on life support. Since the fundraising appeal went live on GoFundMe eight days ago, more than 12,400 people have donated money and have raised around USD 605,000. The target was USD 500,000.
