first_imgMartin was greeted by hugs galore from friends and family, handlers and his Nome hosts. KNOM Radio Mission photo.This year’s Iditarod is not only record-breaking, it may have broken some mushers as well.The 42 annual race will not soon be forgotten.  It’s being called on of the toughest in the race’s history.There isn’t a veteran Iditarod musher who doesn’t agree this year’s was one of the toughest in the race’s 42 year history.  Aliy Zirkle is a 14-time finisher.  This year, she says the challenges between Anchorage and Nome were endless.Moments after arriving at the finish line, Dallas Seavey crouches down in his sled, overcome with emotion. KNOM Radio Mission photo.“Everyday has been harder than the next day, every day has been harder,” she said.Early on, the Happy River Steps cracked sleds, snapped gang lines and left mushers bruised. The run through the Dalzell Gorge and over the Farewell Burn forced a dozen teams to scratch in a single day.  Teams faced long stretches of snow free trail in the Alaska Range, between Kaltag and Unalakleet and along the Bering Sea Coast.  But it was a fierce, Arctic wind that really shook Aily Zirkle on her final run to Nome.“That was the most challenging couple of hours of my life dog mushing and that was very touch-and-go as far as whether I was going to make it to safety or not with my dog team,” Zirkle said.Safety is the last checkpoint on the trail. The irony of its name isn’t lost on Zirkle. She says hurricane-force winds could have easily blown her petite sled dogs straight into the inky, roiling waters of the Bering Sea.“For some reason they keep saying there’s no snow out here, but then there was a ground blizzard and you couldn’t see, so there’s snow somewhere,” Zirkle said. “If a person were to stop out there, that was a life or death thing there.”At least two mushers did stop as the wind howled. Jeff King’s dog team got stuck for more than two hours just outside the last checkpoint on the trail. Hugh Neff’s team hunkered down overnight on thick glare ice outside White Mountain.  Eventually, both scratched from the race.Mitch Seavey, who finished third and won last year, half-joked that he’d have to write a book about how he got his dog team down the trail.“There’s a thousand things that happen, you know,” Seavey said. “One particular instance, we were trying to cross a sloping section of glare ice and the wind was blowing so hard from our right that one couldn’t stand up on a normal day, much less on glare ice and caught the sled dragged the entire team 100 yards backwards.”Working his way down the line first with salmon strips, Martin came back down the line with pets, hugs, and kisses for his team. KNOM Radio Mission photo.Seavey’s son Dallas won this year, claiming a second championship.  It’s likely the two will return to defend what’s becoming something of a family tradition. But things are different for Martin Buser.  He’s run the race 31 times, more than any other musher.  His arrival in Nome was extremely emotional. After a tearful greeting with his lead dogs at the finish line, Buser hugged his wife Kathy for a long time.“You never have to do this again if you don’t want to.”Buser is disappointed in his performance as a musher. He says he doesn’t believe he did well by his dogs.“I’ve been out of control for so long. I can’t balance, I can’t do anything. I can’t steer a sled, I keep wrecking and falling,” he said. “I can’t do the dogs justice, that’s what’s so bad.”Despite his long-lived mushing career, it’s unclear if Buser will come back to the race.“I never say ‘never.’ You don’t get me to fall in that little trap,” he said. “I’m the only one that has never said ‘never,’ that way I don’t need to come back.”Receiving congratulations from Iditarod Trail Committee Executive Director Stan Hooley. KNOM Radio Mission photo.The same question came up for another long-time veteran.  More than once, Sonny Lindner has commented about retiring from the sport, but this year, he says it’s official.“Well I started in ’78,” Lindner said.He’s finished the race 21 times.  He says this year’s run was reminiscent of them all.“Well, it had little part of all of them,” Lindner said. “The bad parts, I think.”With that, Lindner climbed on the back of his sled, called to his dogs and took off out of the finish chute for what very well be the last time in a career that spans nearly as many decades as the race itself.last_img read more

first_imgIf you’ve been keeping up with Activision news this week, this latest rumor will fill you with dread: the house that Kotick built is looking to purchase Take Two Interactive, the publisher of the Grand Theft Auto and Bioshock series. If the rumor is true, the acquisition would make Activision even more of an untoppleable colossus than it already is. Not only would it own World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, Bioshock and Grand Theft Auto, it would bring their talent along for the ride.The problem here, frankly, is that Activision is by-and-large an exploitative game publisher. Look how they ran the Guitar Hero franchise into the ground: they simply bled it dry. All signs point to Activision being in the process of doing the same thing with the Call of Duty franchise. It’s the equivalent of overfishing.Forgive me, then, if I react with horror at the prospect of Bobby Kotick owning the Bioshock franchise, or Grand Theft Auto, and suddenly demanding that these series produce new titles with the same regularity as other Activision franchises.For now, though, this is just a rumor… and there’s always the chance that Activision would choose to handle any Take Two studios it did absorb more in line with the way they handle Blizzard: with free reign. Here’s hoping.Read more at MCVlast_img read more

first_img Apple Brings Contactless Student IDs to More UniversitiesCelebrate World Emoji Day With Diverse New Characters It seems like only yesterday when Apple dropped not just one but two totally different new models of its flagship product the iPhone. The iPhone 8/8Plus was a nice if conventional upgrade on previous models. But the iPhone X was a complete reinvention with a bezel-free screen, face-stealing tech, improved AR functionality, and a $1,000 price tag. However, because none of this can ever stop, obviously new iPhones are now on the way.Coinciding with this week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, rumors are now swirling as to what exactly the next iPhones will be when they are inevitably revealed in September. Reports from Bloomberg suggest there will in fact be three variants of the iPhone X, iPhone XXX, if you will.How exactly does Apple plan to split the iPhone X into three? We can’t confirm anything, but this speculation is pretty convincing. The first new iPhone X would just be an expected upgrade to the existing iPhone X. It would pack a more powerful A12 processor, run iOS 12, and maybe come in a new color. But it would be the phone you’re expecting after the iPhone X. Using past Apple naming conventions, let’s call this one the iPhone Xs.AdChoices广告The second phone would swap the OLED screen for an LCD one and steel parts for aluminum. This would reduce quality somewhat but also make the phone, which again currently costs $1,000, more affordable. Let’s call this one the iPhone Xc.Finally, the most drastic new iPhone X would feature a bigger body (oh boy) about the size of the iPhone 8 Plus. However, the bezel-free display would give the phone a whopping 6.5-inch screen (versus the 5.8 iPhone X screen) with a 2688 x 1242 resolution. Other new features might include improved face-scanning tech and a split-screen mode. History suggests this phone would be called the iPhone X Plus, but how could Apple pass up calling it the iPhone XL?Whatever the new iPhone(s) end up being, it’ll still be a few months before we know for sure. So rest easy knowing your current $1,000 iPhone X isn’t obsolete just yet.Purchase the iPhone XVerizonT-MobileAT&TSprintFor more MWC coverage visit our sister site PC Mag.

The shooting occurred Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. after he was targeted by an unknown subject who reportedly shot at him several times. The shooting took place on the beach in front of the lifeguard tower of the Rui Dunamar hotel.During the shooting, a hotel lifeguard was injured, receiving a gunshot wound. Both were taken to a nearby hospital. The street vendor later died from his injuries. The lifeguard was voluntarily released from hospital the same day.The deceased has been identified as Manuel Guillermo N.An investigation by Ministerial Police revealed that more than 10 casings were lifted by hotel security employees and moved more than 100 meters away, altering the crime scene.

first_imgThe FAA has banned hundreds of thousands of MacBook Pros from flying due to fire hazard. That is great because nobody wants to go down in a plane because of a faulty battery. But the fact is that it will be a pain to screen the affected units at the boarding gate — and that could affect millions of MacBook Pro users.Back on June 20, Apple announced a voluntary recall of some 15-inch MacBook Pros sold between September 2015 and February 2017. These MacBooks have a battery issue that can cause them to catch fire. Looking at the serial numbers specified by Apple, that’s about 460,000 units sold in the US and Canada.Following those news, the FAA has reminded everyone that those recalled units are banned from flights, just like it did with the good old Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fireball: “The FAA reminds passengers that recalled batteries do not fly. Avoid carrying recalled batteries when flying until repaired/replaced per manufacturer instructions.”The FAA linked to the news of the Apple recall in that tweet. According to Bloomberg, four airlines have already announced they are going to start screening these MacBooks at the gate and before take off. RECOMMENDED VIDEOS FOR YOU…logoCreated with Sketch.

And there’s not an easy way to identify them. With the Galaxy Note 7, boarding gate personnel could look at your phone, see “Note 7”, and ban it from flying. But with the MacBook Pro, they will need to screen your computer in a more detailed way.First, you will have to turn your MacBook Pro on, log in, and show them your unit model name in the “About This Mac” from the Apple menu. Assuming they have the information readily available to compare, the boarding gate peeps can then discard any computers that don’t say “MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015)”If your model is a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), then you will need to go to this page and enter your serial model, which is located in the System Information app or in the “About This Mac” panel. If the page says your computer is fine, then you can fly. If your computer is flagged but it has already went to Apple for repair, then you will have to show proof of the repair to the airline people and hope they let you in.This sounds like a lot of fun for everyone involved — including the people waiting in line behind you at the boarding gate.Huawei Rips Off MacBook Pro with MagicBook ProiPhone 11 Rumors: Release Date, Price, Specs and LeaksThe Best iOS Apps You’re Not Using (But Should Be)last_img read more

first_img Invivo’s next-generation MRI patient vital signs monitor, the Precess Patient Management Configuration, is built off of Invivo’s flagship Precess 3160 platform and reportedly utilizes the industry’s first wireless ECG and wireless SpO2 patient vital signs. The Precess Patient Management configuration helps close the gap between MRI monitors and OR monitors. The monitor features flexible mounting. Now anesthesia providers can have their MRI monitor mounted to their anesthesia machine just like they do in the OR. Mounting the entire MRI monitor to the anesthesia machine provides one common location for the clinician to access their equipment. Clinicians now have better access to the patient by having all lines from the MRI monitor and the anesthesia machine from a single location. In addition to anesthesia mounts for all MRI anesthesia machines, this monitor also can be mounted to a wall or MRI table to help provide more usable room and better patient access in the MRI, a feature designed to enhance workflow.

first_imgGoogle Employees who helped organize the worldwide Google Walkout are now facing troubles for doing so. Per a report by Wired, roles of two Google employees, Claire Stapleton, YouTube Marketing Manager and Meredith Whittaker the head of Google’s Open Research were changed dramatically several months after the Walkout including calls to abandon AI ethics work, demotion, and more. Both employees posted about their retaliation in a letter shared internally with co-workers on Monday. In November last year, 20,000 Google employees along with Temps, Vendors, and Contractors walked out to protest the discrimination, racism, and sexual harassment that they encountered at Google’s workplace. The Walkout was planned after The New York Times brought to light the shocking allegations against Andy Rubin’s (creator of Android) sexual misconduct at Google. Meredith Whittaker leads Google’s Open Research Group and the Google Measurement Lab. She is also the co-founder of the AI Now Institute, and a renowned figure working to eliminate AI bias and discrimination and incorporate workplace diversity. In the letter, Meredith says, that after the announcement of Google disbanding it’s AI Ethics council, she was informed that to remain at the company she will have to abandon her work on AI ethics and the AI Now Institute. Claire Stapleton, another walkout organizer was told she would be demoted from her role as marketing manager at YouTube. After escalating the issue to human resources, she said she faced further retaliation. “My manager started ignoring me, my work was given to other people, and I was told to go on medical leave, even though I’m not sick,” Stapleton wrote in the letter which was seen by Wired. Her demotion was only reversed after she hired a lawyer, and the company conducted an investigation. She adds, “While my work has been restored, the environment remains hostile and I consider quitting nearly every day.” “More than 300 other employees have shared stories of retaliation since the walkout,” Ms. Stapleton and Ms. Whittaker wrote in their letter. Google has a long history of retaliation, particularly to silence women, people of color, and gender minorities. The suffering that these people face include but not limited to icy conversations, gaslighting, project cancellations, transition rejections, and demotions. Ms. Stapleton and Ms. Whittaker wrote in the letter, “On reading the 350 collected stories after the walkout, a sad pattern emerges: People who stand up and report discrimination, abuse, and unethical conduct are punished, sidelined, and pushed out. Perpetrators often go unimpeded or are even rewarded (Andy, Amit, “I reported, he got promoted”).” They urge Google to end retaliation against the people who speak honestly about these problems in order to foster a culture free of discrimination, harassment, and unethical decision making. In regards to this, both women plan to host a Retaliation Town Hall to share their stories and strategize on Friday. They will also be live-streaming the meeting. The ladies also urge people to share their stories if they have been retaliated against. Google put up another ignorant statement in response to this letter. A Google spokesperson told Wired, “We prohibit retaliation in the workplace and investigate all allegations. Employees and teams are regularly and commonly given new assignments, or reorganized, to keep pace with evolving business needs. There has been no retaliation here.” It is worth noting that Googlers had a special place in Google’s S-1 filing made almost 16 years ago on April 29, 2004, which states: “Our employees, who have named themselves Googlers, are everything. Google is organized around the ability to attract and leverage the talent of exceptional technologists and business people. We have been lucky to recruit many creative, principled and hard-working stars. We hope to recruit many more in the future. We will reward and treat them well.” On Twitter, people blasted Google’s response. They have also spoken in solidarity with Ms. Stapleton and Ms. Whittaker and condemned Google saying the company only wants to mint money instead of taking care of its employees. François Chollet, who heads Deep learning at Google and is the creator of Keras, neural networks library, also spoke in favor of Meredith. Meredith Whittaker also took to Twitter to thank people for supporting her. “Google’s retaliation isn’t about me, or Claire. It’s about silencing dissent & making us afraid to speak honestly about tech & power.” Read Next Google dissolves its Advanced Technology External Advisory Council in a week after repeat criticism on the selection of members. Google employees filed a petition to remove anti-trans, anti-LGBTQ and anti-immigrant Kay Coles James from the AI council Google employees ‘Walkout for Real Change’ today.

first_img It has been a tough year so far for Morgan Stanley. So the news that the investment banking firm’s net income for the second quarter rose by 45 percent from the previous quarter came as welcome news, according to the firm’s Q2 earnings report released Wednesday.Morgan Stanley reported net income of $1.6 billion in Q2, up from $1.1 billion in Q1. So far this year, the firm has endured a $3.2 billion settlement reached in February to resolve claims of “deceptive” mortgage-backed securities practices. Then, in late June toward the end of Q2, Morgan Stanley ran into trouble with its capital planning process; while the Federal Reserve did not reject Morgan Stanley’s capital plan, the Fed still asked the firm to resubmit its plan to address some weaknesses that were found.The firm’s earnings per share in Q2 were 75 cents per share with overall revenues of $8.9 billion, which beat analysts’ expectations of 59 cents per share and revenues of $8.3 billion.“Our results this quarter reflect solid performance in an improved but still fragile environment,” said James Gorman, Chairman and CEO of Morgan Stanley. “In the midst of market uncertainty, we maintained our leadership positions across our core franchises and continued our focus on prudent risk management and judicious expense control. We remain committed to executing for our clients and delivering on our strategic priorities for our shareholders.”Morgan Stanley’s common equity tier 1 capital ratio—a measure of the firm’s financial strength that compares its core equity capital and its total risk-weighted assets—under U.S. Basel III Advanced Approach transitional provisions was approximately 16.9 percent as of the end of Q2. to be 12 percent at the end of the fourth quarter in 2015. By comparison, the Fed estimated in the recent Dodd-Frank Act Stress Tests that Morgan Stanley’s common equity tier 1 capital ratio in a severely adverse economic scenario would be 16.4 percent (as of the end of Q4 2015).Click here to view Morgan Stanley’s complete Q2 earnings report.

first_imgAfter watching three head consecutive head coaches leave after one season, Arkansas State wanted their fourth hire in as many years to stick. Blake Anderson has stuck.Anderson left his job as North Carolina’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the conclusion of the 2013 season and has brought a measure of success and stability the program has not enjoyed since the mid 1980s, years before A-State joined FBS. Under Anderson’s direction, the Red Wolves are 39-25 overall and 31-9 in Sun Belt play; they’ve reached a bowl game in all five of his seasons and won or shared a Sun Belt conference or division title in three of those seasons.All that success has come with a cost. When you win at Arkansas State, people — richer people, that is — notice. Defensive coordinator Joe Cauthen was hired away to the same post at Houston and brought defensive line coach Brian Early with him. Assistant head coach/cornerbacks coach Trooper Taylor was hired away by Duke. Running backs coach and special teams coordinator Norval McKenzie left for Louisville, as did head strength coach Pat Ivey.In a related note, Arkansas State paid Anderson’s assistant coaches a collective $1.289 million in 2018, which ranked fourth in the Sun Belt but 76th nationally among public schools. (Anderson himself made $850,000 last season, third in the Sun Belt and 89th in the country.) In total, Anderson will have to replace eight of his 11 senior staff members from 2018 to 2019. (Three such hires have already been announced, and more are in the works.)But though Anderson must do more work to build his staff than any sitting head coach in recent memory, that isn’t close to the biggest battle facing the 49-year-old.Wendy Anderson, Blake’s wife, is currently fighting for her life. Wendy fought and beat breast cancer originally in 2017, but the family revealed in November that the cancer has not only returned, but spread to her lungs, lymph nodes, rib cage and liver.Anderson has worked through both of his wife’s bouts with the disease. In 2017, he accompanied her to Mexico for a month’s worth of immunotherapy treatments. He coached Arkansas State in last month’s Arizona Bowl weeks after the family publicly acknowledged Wendy’s cancer had returned.While Wendy fights for her life, Blake will be by her side — while also running a major college football program at the same time.“This is a long journey that’s coming up,” Blake told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in December. “They’re not going to be able to do surgery and get this. It’s in way too many areas in her body. This is going to be treatment of some kind. We’re looking at a long road of something. It’s not like they can just go in and pluck it out. It’s everywhere.“How do I balance it? That’s where I’m really fortunate. I’ve got great bosses that are all-in and say, ‘Do what you need to do.’ We’ll make it work.”Please join us in continuing to lift up Wendy in prayer.

first_imgA key stage in the construction of Britain’s newest and most contemporary cruise ship has been marked at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg. The team building P&O Cruises 180,000-ton ship, Iona, which will be powered by liquefied natural gas, making it the UK’s greenest ship, celebrated the milestone with the traditional coin-laying ceremony. A bronze coin from the historic Iona Abbey and a slice of precious green Iona marble from the island were placed under the block housing the bow thrusters before the block was then lowered onto these items. P&O Cruises president, Paul Ludlow, who attended the event, said “This was an auspicious occasion in Iona’s build. “The coin-laying is a long-held ship-building tradition which is to bring good luck to the ship and its crew through from construction to the future at sea. ADVERTISEMENT“It is very special to think that a small part of the island of Iona will live within our own Iona. “We hope that the qualities of beauty, heritage, pride, camaraderie, mutual support and loyalty from the island which attracted us to the name will be inherent in our ship, its crew and guests.”As part of the ceremony the ship’s central steel block, the “mega block,” which has already been constructed was “floated out” on to the water. The 21.5-metre long block weighs 461 tons, is 19.4 metres wide and 9.8 metres high and had to be lifted by a 600-ton crane. The next steps are the block assembly of the bow and forward part of the ship in the dock as well as the further outfitting of the block in the harbour basin. In August, the block will be brought inside to the building dock and welded to the forward part.Find out more below:<p> OlderRove at the Park expands mid-sector accommodation options in Dubai NewerSix Senses Hotels unveils Iceland propertylast_img read more
