first_imgMySpace se rapproche de FacebookAnciens rivaux, MySpace et Facebook vont bientôt se rapprocher, selon News Corporation, qui possède le site web musical.Les deux sites étaient rivaux au milieu des années 2000. Aujourd’hui, le réseau social Facebook a largement dépassé MySpace, et revendique plus de 500 millions d’inscrits contre 100 millions pour le site musical. Et c’est pour la première fois qu’ils vont se rapprocher.À lire aussiL’effet terrible et inattendu de la 5G sur les insectesEn quoi consiste ce rapprochement ? Un nouveau service, Mashup, va faire son apparition. Grâce à lui, les internautes qui ont un compte MySpace peuvent d’un clic y transférer leur profil Facebook. Il sera également possible d’utiliser la fonction “j’aime” (ou “like” en version anglaise) de Facebook sur MySpace.Selon l’AFP, les utilisateurs de ce site web pouvaient déjà synchroniser les informations qu’ils publient sur Facebook. Un million d’internautes se sont laissés tenter par cette option jusqu’à maintenant.A la fin du mois dernier, MySpace avait déjà entrepris une refonte graphique de ses pages, plus épurées.

first_img The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Nintendo’s epic open-world take on its classic fantasy adventure franchise, already looks like one of the most massive games Nintendo has ever produced. But the game that launches on March 3 for both the Wii U and new Nintendo Switch won’t be the complete version. Nintendo has just announced that starting on launch day Breath of the Wild owners can purchase an “Expansion Pass” for downloadable Zelda content.For $20 Zelda players on both Wii U and Nintendo Switch can buy two sets of content: one coming in the summer and the other releasing during the holidays. The summer pack includes a new Cave of Trials challenge, and upgraded in-game map, and a hard mode for a game that already appears to be one of the more difficult Zelda titles to survive. The holiday pack adds an entirely new dungeon and storyline, just in time to make the game more enticing to folks picking up the Switch for the first time. Unfortunately, these packs are only available in this season pass. You can’t buy them separately. But the pass does come with some other perks like new treasure chests and a Switch t-shirt Link can wear right away on March 3.Season passes are that curious recent AAA gaming idea that charges users upfront for content released over a period of time. With its open-world format Breath of the Wild has already shown that Nintendo is willing to take inspiration from modern AAA games like Far Cry and The Witcher. We shouldn’t be too surprised these modern business models have also been lifted. The company has gone full Ubisoft. This also seems to confirm a recent Nintendo Switch UI leak that mentions the ability to sell season passes.This isn’t even the first Nintendo season pass. Mario Golf: World Tour and the recent Fire Emblems sold content this way as did action-packed Zelda spin-off Hyrule Warriors. Mario Kart 8 also sold DLC in two big content packs spaced six months apart, the same content appearing in the upcoming Switch port Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. This is just the first mainline Zelda game to offer DLC.The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been in development for at least four years across two platforms, one of which is virtually dead. It’s the first original HD Zelda game. It takes place in a huge open-world Nintendo has never made before and features voice-acting. All this to say it was probably a very expensive game to produce for a company with profits not as high as they used to be. So we shouldn’t be surprised Nintendo is trying to recoup as much money as possible with season passes and $100 collector’s editions. Other game companies do it all the time. I just hope the DLC is worth it, and given how great The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has looked and played so far, I have faith.Want to learn more?

first_imgCrude prices fell early on Thursday as concerns over a global glut took center stage after Russia and Iran said they were ready to raise oil production further, while inventories in the United States climbed slightly.The International Energy Agency (IEA) said on Thursday that oil markets would likely take until 2017 to re-balance and that there was no major economic slowdown.International Brent crude futures were trading at $45.36 per barrel at 0048 GMT, down 44 cents from their last settlement.U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were down 40 cents at $43.78 a barrel after the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said that crude stocks rose slightly, by 2.1 million barrels last week.Russia said on Wednesday it was prepared to push oil production to historic highs, just days after a global deal to freeze output levels collapsed and Saudi Arabia threatened to flood markets with more crude.Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Russia was “in theory” able to raise production to 12 million or even 13 million barrels per day (bpd) from current record levels of close to 11 million bpd.Meanwhile, Iran, determined to regain market share following the lifting of international sanctions last January, reiterated its intention to reach output of 4 million bpd as soon as possible.With major producers in the Middle East and Russia seemingly racing to raise production, much will depend on U.S. shale drillers and demand to determine how long the global glut lasts which sees between 1 million and 2 million barrels of crude pumped every day in excess of demand.”Any hope of market re-balancing from the current surplus in supply (lies) on the predicted decline in U.S. oil production,” French bank BNP Paribas said.IEA chief Fatih Birol said on Thursday he expected the oil market to come back into balance from oversupply by next year, although he warned that this was provided there were no major economic shocks.Speaking in Japan, Birol said the IEA expects non-OPEC oil production to fall by about 700,000 bpd this year.”The U.S. accounts for the bulk of non-OPEC’s 2016 oil supply contraction of 700,000 barrels per day forecast. If the decline in the U.S. oil supply proves insufficient to tighten balances, then the oil price will remain low to further crowd out higher cost and less efficient producers, as well as stimulate demand,” BNP Paribas said.last_img read more

first_imgFrench foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian (L) and European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, Iran`s foreign minister, Britain`s foreign secretary and Germany`s foreign minister take part in a meeting EU/E3 and EU/E3 with Iran at the EU headquarters in Brussels on 15 May 2018. Photo: AFPThe EU’s foreign policy chief warned Monday there was “no alternative” to the Iran nuclear deal, after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo vowed unprecedented sanctions against Tehran following Washington’s withdrawal from the pact.Pompeo — a longtime Iran hawk and fierce opponent of the 2015 agreement — earlier outlined an aggressive series of “painful” measures designed to hurt Tehran, in his first key address since moving to the State Department from the CIA in April.”Secretary Pompeo’s speech has not demonstrated how walking away from the JCPOA (nuclear deal) has made or will make the region safer from the threat of nuclear proliferation or how it puts us in a better position to influence Iran’s conduct in areas outside the scope of JCPOA,” the European Union’s foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said.In a statement, she stressed “there is no alternative” to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as the deal is officially known.US president Donald Trump sparked an international outcry earlier this month when he announced his country would pull out of the landmark accord struck in July 2015 between Tehran and major world powers.His move came despite the fact that the UN’s nuclear watchdog, in charge of monitoring Iran’s compliance with the deal, has confirmed that Tehran has so far abided by the terms.Trump wants Brussels and others to support his hardline strategy and push for a fresh agreement.”Iran will never again have carte blanche to dominate the Middle East,” Pompeo said, outlining 12 tough conditions from Washington for any “new deal” with Tehran.But Mogherini called on the US to keep its commitments as part of the agreement signed under Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama.”The JCPOA is the result of more than a decade of complex and delicate negotiations, based on dual track approach and therefore the best possible outcome, striking the right balance,” Mogherini said.”This deal belongs to the international community, having been endorsed by the United Nations security council. The international community expects all sides to keep the commitments they made more than two years ago.”She reiterated that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) had confirmed already 10 times that Iran has implemented “all its nuclear related commitments” under the agreement.The re-establishment of the US punitive measures will likely force European companies to choose between investing in Iran or trading with the United States.The EU has been trying to persuade Iran to stay in the 2015 agreement, even without Washington’s participation.German foreign minister Heiko Maas, attending the G20 foreign ministers’ meeting in Buenos Aires, said he was not surprised by Pompeo’s critique of the Iran deal, before adding: “We do not see at this time a better alternative.””We believe that without this agreement, we would take the risk that Iran resumes its nuclear program,” he said.Maas said he will travel to Washington to talk with Pompeo this week.last_img

first_imgSupporters of Jair Bolsonaro, far-right lawmaker and presidential candidate of the Social Liberal Party (PSL), gather around an inflatable doll, also known as Pixuleco, depicting Brazil`s former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, after Bolsonaro wins the presidential race, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on 28 October. Photo: ReutersBrazil entered a new era Monday after electing its next president, Jair Bolsonaro, a far-right congressman who vowed a fundamental change in direction for the giant Latin American country.Bolsonaro, who openly admires Brazil’s former military dictatorship and shocked many with his derogatory remarks on women, gays and blacks, won 55 per cent of the vote in a run-off election Sunday — more than 10 points ahead of leftist opponent Fernando Haddad.Having channeled voters’ anger with corruption, crime and economic malaise, the man dubbed the “Tropical Trump” will now get down to work seeking to “change Brazil’s destiny” — the promise he made in his victory speech.Markets reacted positively to the win by the business-world favourite, who will take office on 1 January — though profit-taking set in later in the day.The Sao Paulo stock exchange’s main index opened up more than three percent, after adding 10 percent in a month as Bolsonaro surged in the polls, before falling 2.24 percent into the red at the close.The Brazilian real hit its strongest in six months against the dollar, then retreated slightly.After a deeply polarizing election, many Brazilians seem eager to turn the page, hoping for the best as the country takes what even many Bolsonaro supporters acknowledge is a leap into the unknown.”Maybe now, with this renewal, things will improve in this country,” Bolsonaro voter Jocemil Clacino, a 66-year-old shopkeeper in Rio de Janeiro, told AFP.For Bolsonaro’s opponents, however, the bitterness runs deep.”These elections revealed the worst in humanity. People let out everything they had been too afraid to talk about. It made me feel terrible. But we’ll have to carry on,” said Adriana Calvi, 55.What’s a minority?Bolsonaro, 63, has outraged many with his overtly misogynistic, homophobic and racist rhetoric.But he vowed in his first interview as president-elect to govern for all Brazilians.Asked if he would respect the rights of minorities, he asked, “What’s a minority?””We’re all the same. I’m no different from you. I don’t care what colour your skin is, your sexual orientation, where you’re from, your gender. We’re the same,” he told TV network Record.”I think if we achieve that equality for all, everyone will be satisfied.”He appeared relaxed at his home in Rio, where he has mostly remained since leaving the hospital after an attacker stabbed him in the belly at a rally on 6 September.Cautious congratsBolsonaro said he had spent much of the day on the phone, receiving congratulations from world leaders — though some also urged him to “respect democratic principles,” as French president Emmanuel Macron put it.Opponents have warned Bolsonaro could try to veer toward authoritarianism, after the former army captain heaped praise on Brazil’s brutal military dictatorship (1964-1985) and its torture of leftist dissidents.The European Union will be expecting Bolsonaro to “work to consolidate democracy,” EU spokeswoman Natasha Bertaud said pointedly.US President Donald Trump and Italy’s far-right interior minister Matteo Salvini were more effusive.Trump tweeted that he had had an “excellent” phone call with Bolsonaro, and Salvini celebrated the fact that “in Brazil too, the people have chased out the left.”Bolsonaro also spoke with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who warmly invited him to Israel, the PM’s office said.In a sign of how far the “pink tide” of left-wing governments that recently dominated Latin America has ebbed, even Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and Ecuador’s Evo Morales — two leftist holdouts — sent their congrats.Conciliatory toneThe polls came on the heels of Brazil’s worst-ever recession, a staggering multibillion-dollar corruption scandal and a year of record-setting violent crime.Although many voters expressed strong dislike for Bolsonaro, even more rejected Haddad and his Workers’ Party, which had won the past four presidential elections.Bolsonaro’s top economic adviser, liberal economist Paulo Guedes, promised sweeping changes for the world’s eighth-largest economy.”We are going to change the social-democratic economic model. It’s terrible,” said Guedes, who will head an economy super-ministry under Bolsonaro.”We need pension reform… and we are going to accelerate privatizations.”Bolsonaro is due to fly to Brasilia soon to start the transition process with outgoing president Michel Temer, though aides did not confirm the timing.last_img

first_imgStory Links LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Samuell Williamson, who signed in November to play for the University of Louisville men’s basketball, has been selected to play in the 42nd annual McDonald’s All-American Game.A 6-7, 190-pound guard from Rockwall (Texas) High School, Williamson is having a stellar senior season. He is averaging 25.6 points, 11.4 rebounds, and 4.3 assists this season while helping Rockwall achieve a 23-5 record and a No. 6 ranking among Texas 6A teams.  In his last game on Tuesday, Williamson scored 29 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and handed out four assists to lead Rockwall High School to a 72-61 victory over Rockwall-Heath.  Ranked No. 33 in the 2019 ESPN 100, Williamson was honored as the MVP of the Austin Anderson Classic early in the season when he led Rockwall to four victories and the championship of the event.  He topped 30 points in three straight games over two days on Dec. 27-28, scoring 35, 37 and 32 points in consecutive games.”We are thrilled for Samuell and his family for being named a McDonald’s All American,” said UofL Head Coach Chris Mack. “Sam has worked incredibly hard to this point and has a bright future on and off the court. He’s certainly a fast riser and we look forward to his days in a Cardinal uniform.”Williamson becomes the 28th McDonald’s All-America selection who has signed with Louisville, including three that signed with UofL but did not play for the Cardinals.  Current Cardinal V.J. King was a 2016 selection.  The 2019 game will be played at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Ga., on March 27.”Samuell Williamson is a gifted wing prospect that has shown constant progression,” said Evan Daniels, College Basketball and Recruiting Insider for 247Sports and FS1. “Williamson’s improvement over the last year is notable and he’s deserving of this honor. He has plus size for the position, a budding skill set and a scoring package that allows him to score from all three levels. Players making constant improvements to their game and taking big jumps during their senior years is something as evaluators we search for.  Williamson has continued to improve since the first time we saw him and has built on that during his senior season. There are still all-star games to play out, but he has the look of a potential five-star prospect.”Williamson averaged 23.3 points, 9.7 rebounds as a junior last season in helping Rockwall to a 20-12 record, earning first team Texas Association of Basketball Coaches all-state honors.  He scored 21 points as his team reached the area round.  The Dallas Morning News all-metro selection and district player of the year had 20 points and 11 rebounds in a game that decided the district championship last season.Williamson is one of a six-member UofL signing class that is ranked second in the nation by ESPN.com, fifth by Rivals.com and fifth by 247sports.com.  All six individuals are ranked highly among the nation’s prospects, including five of the six among ESPN’s top 100. The impressive class also includes Aidan Igiehon, a 6-10, 230-pound forward from Dublin, Ireland and Lawrence Woodmere (N.Y.) Academy; David Johnson, a 6-5, 180-pound guard from Trinity High School in Louisville; Josh Nickelberry, a 6-4, 175-pound guard from Northwood Temple Academy in Fayetteville, N.C.; Quinn Slazinski, a 6-8, 200-pound forward from Houston and Huntington (W. Va.) Prep; and Jae’Lyn Withers, a 6-8, 215-pound forward from Charlotte, N.C. who is playing his final season at Cleveland (Ohio) Heights High School.   Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

first_imgBack in November, Naughty Dog revealed that the upcoming campaign DLC for The Last of Us would be titled Left Behind, and focus on deuteragonist Ellie’s time before she met protagonist Joel. Now, it has been revealed that the DLC will be released on Valentine’s Day, February 14, so those of us that romance left behind will at least have a worthwhile experience that night.Ellie’s backstory has been covered before by the Dark Horse trade paperback, American Dreams, but there’s still more story to explore as evinced by the existence of this new prequel DLC. Left Behind focuses on Ellie’s relationship with her best friend Riley, whom she grew up with in a military boarding school. After disappearing for a few weeks, Riley returns to Ellie, and the two sneak out of the boarding school for good, which we can only assume causes tragic events that eventually lead Ellie to Joel.Though The Last of Us is one of those unique, complete experiences that should be left alone (but not behind), the overall experience of the game was just so, so good that it’s a safe bet the DLC campaign won’t cheapen that overall experience. The DLC is actually shoring up the character of Ellie, who was a great, interesting character in her own right, but was far out-shined by the heroic yet extremely flawed Joel.The Last of Us franchise is in a tough bind. The experience is phenomenal, but complete. In order for the quality and memory of TLOU to never waver, it needs to be left alone. This means if Naughty Dog wants to make more money, the developer has to lessen the quality of its pristine experience. Furthermore, if you’re a fan of the game, it’d be rough to never have a new experience with it ever again. A sequel set in the same world, but without the same characters, could also ultimately damage the original, because Naughty Dog may not be able to recreate the superb experience. Left Behind, a small prequel exploring perhaps the only important aspect of the game left somewhat unexplored, is an intelligent way to handle this dilemma.You can pre-order Left Behind now for just $14.99 — much cheaper than Valentine’s Day presents you would’ve spent on your loved one if you had one.last_img read more

first_imgWhile we fret over the future of killer commando-robots, cyber weapons pose a much greater threat to everyday life.Worse than the viruses spreading through your computer, this malware is employed for military or intelligence purposes, able to identify and engage targets without human intervention.“Contrary to popular belief, this ability doesn’t necessarily require advanced artificial intelligence,” Undark reported.AdChoices广告“In fact, militaries already use some semi-autonomous or human-supervised autonomous weapons,” the news blog said. “Though so far only in limited battlefield scenarios … such as automatically detecting and shooting down enemy missiles.”Though the United Nations Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons has been discussing autonomous weapon regulations since 2017, these high-tech howitzers have been in service for decades.The first fully autonomous weapon—an anti-ship missile—was deployed by the U.S. Navy in the 1980s.“Cyber systems have been autonomous since the first computer worm copied itself and spread across different computer drives,” Paul Scharre, director of the Technology and National Security Program at the Center for a New American Security in Washington, D.C., told Undark.But while most folks are still carrying physical firearms, some advanced armies are dropping cyber cannons, which can cause damage well beyond combat zones.“Malicious computer programs that could be described as ‘intelligent autonomous agents’ are what steal people’s data, build bot-nets, lock people out of their systems until they pay ransom, and do most of the other work of cyber criminals,” according to Scott Borg, director and chief economist of the U.S. Cyber Consequences Unit nonprofit research institute.The Stuxnet virus, for example, emerged in 2010 as a cyber weapon jointly developed by U.S. and Israeli officials in an effort to shut down the development of Iran’s nuclear program.Last year, North Korea allegedly unleashed the WannaCry ransomware on hundreds of thousands of PCs in what is considered the largest-ever cyber-extortion scheme.“We’re mostly doing things like using cyber weapons of various kinds without an overview of where this is going, what the precedents are, and how we should be doing this,” Borg said. “We’re not having public discussions of the sort that would provide a foundation for consensus policies.”This disconnect, as Undark pointed out, has led to widespread appeals Elon Musk calling for a global ban on “killer robots.” Described as the “third revolution in warfare,” such weapons include drones, tanks, and automated machine guns.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

The students demanded immediate accommodation in the Hindu Hostel and shouted slogans.

first_imgP&O Cruises World Voyages has seen such growth in the Australian market recently, that it has just announced that Australian agents will this July be able to book 2012 sailings at the same time as their counterparts in the UK.Previously due to British travel agents getting a head start on the Australians, agents locally had to make-do with a smaller selection of cabin types and sectors, but come this July Australians will get first dibs on World Voyages as well as traditional liner voyages between South Hampton and Australia.“Now we’re going to strategically bring that launch much further forward, so you’ll launch here at the exact same time as Britain and have fully equal opportunities to sell,” said Carol Marlow, P&O Cruises Managing Director.“The pricing will be set at the current exchange rate… which will be great for Australian travellers.”In an aside to e-Travel Blackboard, Ms Marlow adds that while sector sales haven’t yet been confirmed to also launch at the same time, this could also potentially be confirmed soon as well.P&O Cruises World Voyages is making this move due to the growth that’s building in the Australian market, with 2011 sales in January and February doubling when compared to last year.“Awareness is growing in the market… P&O Cruises World Voyages and our sister brand P&O Cruises here are two completely different products,” adds Ms Marlow.P&O Cruises World Voyages will also launch a brand new localised website in coming days.New products coming onlineIn April the brand new Azura will be ready to launch for P&O Cruises World Voyages, and the cruise line is getting ready to launch a series of fly-cruise packages in the Mediterranean for Australians, Ms Marlow revealed.Carrying just 710 passengers the Azura will be an adult-only ship and offer an intimate and refined cruising experience for those on-board.

first_img Prior to the Federal Reserve’s decision to raise mortgage rates, they were already ticking up without any additional help.Mortgage interest rates made a significant jump from November 2015 to December 2015, according to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA). Interest rates on conventional purchase-money mortgages rose 12 basis points from 3.85 percent to 3.97 percent in December.The FHFA reported that the average interest rate on all mortgage loan increased by 10 basis points from 3.86 percent to 3.96 percent in December 2015.For conventional, 30-year, fixed-rate mortgages of $417,000 or less, the average interest rate was 4.20 percent in December, up 12 basis points from 4.08 in November.The FHFA reported that the effective interest rate, which accounts for the addition of initial fees and charges over the life of the mortgage, on all mortgage loans was 4.10 percent in December, up 9 basis points from 4.01 percent in November.In December, the average loan amount for all loans was $318,000, down $1,800 from $319,800 in November, the FHFA said.Freddie Mac reported in its Primary Mortgage Market Survey (PMMS) that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rate fell 0.6 percentage points from 3.81 percent to 3.79 percent for the week ending January 28, 2016, as the Fed kept interest rates at their current level in its Federal Open Market Committee meeting. A year ago at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 3.66 percent.The 15-year FRM averaged 3.07 percent with an average 0.5 point for the week, down from 3.10 percent last week and up from last year when it averaged 2.98 percent.According to Freddie Mac, the 5-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) averaged 2.90 percent this week with an average 0.5 point, down from last week when it averaged 2.91 percent.Average commitment rates should be reported along with average fees and points to reflect the total upfront cost of obtaining the mortgage. Visit the following link for the Definitions. Borrowers may still pay closing costs which are not included in the survey.”The yield on the 10-year Treasury stabilized around 2 percent this week, and the 30-year mortgage rate dipped 2 basis points to 3.79 percent,” said Sean Becketti, Chief Economist, Freddie Mac. “The recent market turmoil has given the Fed pause; as was universally expected, the Fed stood pat this week but kept its options open for a rate increase in March. This week’s housing releases confirmed the momentum of home sales going into 2016. A hesitant Fed, sub-4-percent mortgage rates (at least for a little while longer), and strong housing fundamentals should generate a three percent increase in home sales this year.” The Ups and Downs of Mortgage Rates January 28, 2016 518 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Government, Newscenter_img Share Federal Housing Finance Agency Freddie Mac Mortgage Rates 2016-01-28 Staff Writerlast_img read more
