Google Glass uses a builtin trackpad for navigation

first_imgThe momentum behind Google’s Project Glass, now known as Google Glass, is growing. That’s mainly due to the involvement of Sergey Brin and his wearing of the prototype glasses whenever he happens to be posing for a picture or appearing on video.This Friday Brin appears on The Gavin Newsom Show, and he is once again wearing the glasses. Luckily for us, the preview of the show reveals something new about their functionality: on the right arm of the glasses a trackpad has been built-in.We previously thought navigation was limited to gestures and voice. Through this inclusion it’s possible to navigate media, select features/apps, and adjust options by using a combination of your finger on the trackpad and what you are viewing through the glasses.Think of it like you are looking at a monitor and navigating what’s on screen with a mouse. Only in this case only you can see the screen and the mouse is installed on a small plastic arm resting against your head. It adds absolutely no bulk to the glasses frame, yet unlocks a load of functionality to the user.Brin describes Google X, the area of Google where future projects are experimented with, as an “advanced skunkworks project.” Although most projects being developed within its walls are multiple years from a launch, Brin hopes Google Glass will arrive at some point next year.It’s certainly a project with potential, and as Brin discusses, it allows you to keep your hands free while having access to features you’d usually associate with a handset. There’s still a lot of development work required though, and we’ve already shown you how annoying ads could be on the device.More at The Gavin Newsom Show, via Engadgetlast_img read more

Donald Trump says he does not have tapes of that secret meeting

Budget 2017 Big on politics light on economics and a fight with

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram While it is the case that every federal budget is as much a political document as it is a statement of economic policy, the 2017 budget brought down by treasurer Scott Morrison places political objectives well ahead of economic rationality. Yet, for all its attempts to construct the notion that this is a plan put together by a pragmatic, centrist government, the Morrison-Turnbull budget will increase the tax burden on all Australians both directly (with an increase in the Medicare levy and, for those who have been or are going to university, higher tertiary education charges) and indirectly (as when the four major banks who have been targeted for a levy pass the cost of this tax on to consumers).In other words, the Turnbull-Morrison budget contains some real nasties for the voters although this has been obscured somewhat by the change in the government’s rhetoric and the inclusion of some stand-out individual proposals. In explaining its approach to the public, the Turnbull government has abandoned the rectitude and the hectoring of an allegedly indolent middle class that characterised the approach of Turnbull’s biggest political opponent, former Liberal leader and ultra-conservative Tony Abbott. In its place has come many more positive and progressive ideas; such as the need for a budget to be equitable and for the government to be taking the lead in attracting investment to allow for the building of infrastructure. The obsession that previous Liberal economic ministers such as former treasurer Joe Hockey (gone, of course) and finance minister Mathias Cormann (still there, but noticeably absent from the post-budget campaign) had with privatisation as a means to achieving a reduction in the role of government has been abandoned. To re-enforce this notion that he is quite different from his Liberal predecessor, Turnbull (via Morrison) has gone so far as to appropriate policies and ideas of his formal opponent, the Labor party. The Gillard government’s approach to secondary education funding is now Turnbull policy, complete with David Gonski on board and with the additional element of the conservatives being prepared to wind back assistance to very wealthy schools. The spectacular U-turn implicit in this policy has caught the attention of commentators, and, partly as a result, has obscured the way the lower to middle-class tax burden has been increased thanks to changes to tertiary fee structures and the HECS repayment arrangements.A similar dynamic emerges in health policy. The Medicare levy is to rise, yet the headlines prefer to note the Coalition’s total appropriation of Labor’s NDIS policy and the removal of the freeze on Medicare payment rates to general practitioner services which, of course, seeks to state that the Coalition is as committed to nationalised health care as its Labor opponents. Perhaps the most spectacular feature of the budget is the government’s proposal to levy a tax on the four major banks. At one level this levy aims to address the need for the government to come up with a revenue stream that can underpin its claim to being in surplus some years hence, but the politics behind it can’t be ignored. This initiative also seeks to address anger at the banks that simmers in some of the Coalition’s core constituency who have a series of complaints about how the major banks handle everything from structuring business loans through to superannuation. The driving force here has been the National Party, although fear of what One Nation is doing to the Nationals’ constituency is clearly influencing the government’s approach. The prospect of the national government taking on the behemoths of the Australian financial services industry may be making political observers salivate in anticipation, but for everyone else the reality will be that, if this proposal is passed, the cost will simply be passed on to those consuming the services provided by the banks. If this is done by way of raising interest rates, the consequences may be severe for the economy especially if world economic recovery turns out to not be as strong as the Australian treasury predicts it to be. Rising interest rates might help retard the rate of increase in house prices in Melbourne and Sydney, but the increase in the cost of taking out a loan does very little to address the ‘housing affordability crisis’. The political imperatives surrounding this budget have thus been many and varied, and Morrison and Turnbull appear to have made a pretty good go at trying to address them all. There are railway lines, new rural financial corporations, and a promise to beat up the big banks to placate the Nationals and the restive regional and rural constituency that flirts with Pauline Hanson. There are commitments to Medicare and Gonski to try and gazump Labor’s attempt to scare voters in swinging seats with allegations that the conservatives want to close down the public sector, and there is an array of commitments to roads, railways, and airports to allow the prime minister to project himself as the builder of ‘infrastructure” and come across as a more positive and optimistic conservative than the Hobbesian version that emerged when Tony Abbott was prime minister.This is all cute politics, but there are dangers lurking. There will be an increase in the tax burden shouldered by average income earners, even though it has been carefully hidden behind rhetoric about the NDIS and a populist tilt at the big banks. Many of the infrastructure commitments are actually simply feasibility studies and some of the projects on the drawing board will need to be undertaken with the assistance of state governments. There is also the matter of the restive Senate. But perhaps the most intriguing thing of all will be how the government manages its relationship with the banking sector. Memories will flood back of Labor’s attempt to recast the tax regime with its ‘mining tax’ and the campaign the mining industry ran in response. The Morrison budget has thrown down the gauntlet with its proposed levy on the banks. It remains to be seen if the Turnbull government has the stomach for the big fight it has picked.last_img read more

UN reviews Saudi rights record amid Khashoggi crisis

first_imgDeputy director of the Project on Middle East Democracy Andrew Miller speaks during a memorial service for Saudi Journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Mayflower Hotel on 2 November in Washington, DC. Photo: AFPCountries will gather at the UN in Geneva Monday to review the rights record of Saudi Arabia, as it faces a torrent of international condemnation over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.The half-day public debate before the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva comes just over a month after the royal insider-turned-critic was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.Turkey’s chief prosecutor confirmed for the first time last Wednesday that Khashoggi was strangled as soon as he entered the consulate on 2 October as part of a planned hit, and his body was then dismembered and destroyed.The murder has placed strain on Saudi Arabia’s relationship with the United States and other western countries and has tarnished the image of crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom’s de facto ruler.Monday’s so-called Universal Periodic Review — which all 193 UN countries must undergo approximately every four years — is likely to also focus on Saudi Arabia’s role in Yemen’s brutal civil war.Saudi Arabia and its allies intervened in the war in 2015 to bolster Yemeni president Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi after the Iran-backed rebels took over the capital Sanaa.According to the World Health Organization, nearly 10,000 people have been killed in the conflict, and a UN panel of experts has accused both the Huthis and the Saudi-led coalition of acts that could amount to war crimes.The conflict has also created the world’s biggest humanitarian crisis and left millions of people on the brink of famine, according to the UN.Washington, which has long backed the Saudi-led coalition, called last week for an end to the coalition’s airstrikes in the country.End ‘deafening silence’The Saudi delegation in Geneva Monday will be headed by Bandar Al Aiban, who serves as the head of the country’s Human Rights Commission.The delegation will present a report over the country’s efforts to live up to its international human rights obligations, and will respond to questions and comments from countries around the world on its record.Activists are urging countries not to hold back.”UN member states must end their deafening silence on Saudi Arabia and do their duty of scrutinising the cruelty in the kingdom in order to prevent further outrageous human rights violations in the country and in Yemen,” Samah Hadid, Amnesty International’s Middle East director of campaigns, said in a statement.”The Saudi government’s long-standing repression of critics, exemplified by the extrajudicial execution of journalist Jamal Khashoggi last month, has until recently been wilfully ignored by UN member states,” she added.A number of countries have already submitted lists of detailed questions for the review, including direct questions from Britain, Austria and Switzerland on the Khashoggi case.Sweden meanwhile is planning to ask: “What measures will be taken to improve the respect for the freedom of expression and the safety of journalists in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia?”And the United States has submitted a question on whether Riyadh plans to modify its counterterrorism law to ensure the definition of “terrorism” does “not include acts of expression, association, or peaceful assembly.”In the run-up to the UPR, the UN rights office published a report in late August listing a range of concerns over Saudi Arabia’s rights record, including laws that discriminate against women.The UN report also decries the continued use of the death penalty and growing number of executions in the country, and voices concern over a counterterrorism law that uses an “extremely broad” definition of terrorism which enables “the criminalisation of some acts of peaceful expression.”last_img read more

Murder Trial Of ExHarris County Deputys Husband Begins

Japan demo shows electricity entering EV through tires

first_img Japanese scientists explore electric roads for EVs Their solution is in the form of a wireless power prototype that can successfully transmit electricity through the concrete block. They consider the prototype as an early step to improve on, and that such an approach can be used one day to keep electric vehicles on the move. Takashi Ohira, an electrical engineering professor at the Toyohashi University of Technology, who leads the team, has developed his electric field coupling system to supply a charge to a car through its tires. The goal is to enable power transmission as the vehicle’s tires travel along the road with suitable efficiency and power transfers.In the demo, a metal plate was placed along with a four-inch layer of concrete, representing the road surface. Electricity between 50 and 60 watts was transmitted to actual-size automobile tires. The demo also showed a light bulb, attached between the two demo car tires, turning on.The university team’s project is called EVER (Electric Vehicle on Electrified Roadway). The focus is research aimed at using wireless power transmission technologies based on electric field coupling for transmitting power to a running vehicle.The July demo is the latest of similar past efforts by the researchers. Last year, Toyota Central R&D Labs and Ohira reported on their work to allow electric cars to drive unlimited distances on an electrified roadway. They reported a system that similarly transmits electric power through steel belts inside the two tires and a metal plate in the road. They presented their work at a workshop in Kyoto. To test how much energy would be lost as electricity traveled through the tire rubber, the researchers also set up a lab experiment with metal plates. “Less than 20 percent of the transmitted power is dissipated in the circuit,” said Ohira at that time. With enough power the system could run typical passenger cars, he added.To make their present technology useful, the electric power needs to be increased by 100 times. But, moving ahead, the group said that they are up to the task of meeting the project’s challenges. Explore further (Phys.org) — Electric vehicles’ future continues to tease scientists to devise promising and practical ideas to keep these cars moving along the highways without having to pull over and wait for a battery recharge. Solutions for the so called “charging and range problem” took yet another twist this month when a Japanese university team demonstrated how electricity can be transmitted to a pair of tires through a four-inch-thick block of concrete, the type of concrete used on roads. The team took its demo to WTP (Wireless Technology Park) 2012, a trade show on wireless technologies, earlier this month in Yokohama. vit Techon Citation: Japan demo shows electricity entering EV through tires (2012, July 8) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-07-japan-demo-electricity-ev.html More information: © 2012 Phys.org This document is subject to copyright.

What do movies have to do with rape

first_imgNagpur-based sculptor and performance artist Surbhi Bhattad began her month-long performance art here Saturday to protest gender abuse and rape.She is performing at Dilli Haat in south Delhi and at Great India Place Mall at Noida with an act ‘Does the Glorious Movie Scenes Inspire You To Rape?’The performance is a body act featuring the young artist, who lies on the floor like a corpse at a crowded public venue. She is clad in white with a leather chastity belt strapped to her groin. The chastity belt — shaped like a woman’s pelvis — has a screening device around the pubic region that beams footage of popular ‘rape sequences’ from eight Bollywood blockbusters with the message, ‘Does this inspire you to rape?’ Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Bhattad will perform at the two venues for three hours everyday to challenge onlookers to react to the footage. ‘The performance is difficult and disturbing because the footage sends different vibrations in my body. It makes me cry. It involves a certain amount of risk,’ said Bhattad after a performance. The reactions of the audience, who had to look at her pelvis to see the videos, ranged from outrage to trauma. Most of the male viewers admitted to feeling ‘confused’ and ‘humbled’. The performance has been inspired by the artist’s intervention work with ‘victims of gender and child abuse’ in Nagpur. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix‘I have been speaking to women who have been sexually and psychologically abused. Bollywood movies have been a trigger in titillating libidos and reckless behaviour among the lower middle social segments, where education and awareness are yet to make incursions,’ Bhattad said.The artist said ‘she found it easy to engage with her body in carrying forth the gender message’. Bhattad’s performance has been described by critics as an eye-catching exhibit among 15 works of multi-media public art across 15 venues in the capital in a new project ‘Publica’, which opened Saturday for a month. Designed around the theme, ‘Spectacle’, the exhibits highlight ‘pollution, road accidents, body building, changing play spaces in cities and yoga’ by three international and 12 Indian artists.The venues include Indira Gandhi International Airport, DLF Emporio, Promenade Mall, India Habitat Centre, Dilli Haat, Select City Walk, The Great India Place, Garden of Five Senses and Sabyasachi @ Carma fashion store in Mehrauli. The festival is being supported by the Delhi government and Ho Ho buses which will touch the venues in a special festival run everyday. Publica has been curated by the Floodlight Foundation led by Delhi-based arts entrepreneur Surbhi Modi. ‘The festival is trying to embed appreciation and understanding of public art into everyday life and use arts as a tool to build awareness,’ Modi said.last_img read more

first_img Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Sponsored Stories Top Stories The mining company, Grupo Mexico, last month announced a 60-day suspension of its $1.4 million copper mining project and said it hoped to “find solutions” for moving forward.The company says the project will not pollute the valley because it will use desalinated water from the Pacific for processing and return the water directly to the ocean.Few locals believe the company. They think the mine will pollute crops and destroy their way of life. They feel betrayed by Peru’s president and many vow to keep up the resistance.“Ollanta came to power in 2011 saying he would support agriculture and now he is doing the total opposite,” said Condori.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Why would we want a mine?” Domingo Condori said while taking a break from harvesting rice.Farmers like Condori earn about $4,000 an acre on the crop, which has two growing seasons a year.The government suspended civil liberties late last month as President Ollanta Humala sent in 2,000 soldiers to restore order in the valley, whose 47,000 residents are mostly farmers. Under the decree, public gatherings are illegal and security forces can search homes and make arrests without warrants.“Farming is what gives us work, what gives us food to eat,” said a teenager named Luis, who participated in clashes with police and avoided police dragnets by hiding in abandoned houses in the hills or in the sugarcane fields by the ocean.Dozens of young men like Luis, who agreed to talk only if not fully identified, would pummel police with rocks fired from slingshots while supporters stood behind them handing out bottles of vinegar to counteract police tear gas. The confrontations killed two farmers, a mason and a police officer and injured 263 officers and 119 farmers, according to the National Ombudsman’s office.
