Clarke set to seek PC leadership after personal and difficult announcement

first_imgA prominent Nova Scotia mayor is expected to enter the Progressive Conservative leadership race Saturday, two days after announcing he was gay and someone had been threatening to reveal it.A spokesperson says Cecil Clarke will “make an announcement” on the provincial run at the North Sydney Firefighters Club Saturday afternoon.She said the Cape Breton Regional Municipality mayor wasn’t giving interviews on Friday.“As I hope you can understand, Cecil’s decision to come out yesterday involved some very personal and difficult details. At this point, he would like to move forward and focus on his future plans,” Leah Batstone wrote in an email.The 49-year-old politician spoke out about his private life in an interview with CBC Radio on Thursday, saying he didn’t want anyone thinking they could shame him or hold something over him.“I’m not afraid of tough issues or taking a stand as people well know, and I’m not afraid of criticism and constructive criticism about the work I do, because that is part of the parliamentary process. But who I am and how I go about my personal life is no longer up as a punching bag for me politically,” Clarke told CBC Sydney’s Mainstreet.He said someone threatened to expose his personal life, so he decided to announce it himself.“I am in a very serious relationship and I’m not going to sacrifice that relationship. I’m not going to be ashamed of that relationship,” Clarke said.The Sydney Mines native served in the provincial legislature as a PC MLA for a decade before returning to Cape Breton to become mayor in 2012.He spent much of his time in the legislature as a cabinet minister in the Progressive Conservative governments of former premiers John Hamm and Rodney MacDonald.Clarke says he’s on the progressive side of the Progressive Conservatives.He would be the third candidate in the leadership race, joining Tim Houston, the MLA for Pictou East, and John Lohr, the member for Kings North.Jamie Baillie announced late last year that he planned to step down as leader and leave politics, but that departure came sooner than expected last month when he resigned following an allegation of inappropriate behaviour.Details of the leadership convention are expected to be announced Feb. 11 during the party’s annual general meeting in Halifax.Christina Lamey, a spokeswoman for the Cape Breton Regional Municipality, said the mayor decided to speak out after an incident earlier this week. At issue was “hateful speech” directed at Clarke’s sexuality, she said.Clarke received an outpouring of support of social media, with many applauding his courage to come forward and tell his story and condemning the homophobia and threats he endured.last_img read more

US customs officers seize 3500 Christmas elves at QuebecNY border

first_imgMONTREAL — U.S. Customs and Border Protection says its officers working at the Quebec-New York border seized some 3,500 Christmas toys after they were found to lack proper documentation.The agency says a commercial shipment of Elf Hatching Eggs from Canada was seized at the Champlain, N.Y. border crossing due to the absence of tracking label information and a general certificate of conformity, as required by law.Champlain Area port director Steven Bronson said in a statement that border agents and the Consumer Product Safety Commission worked together on the file to enforce safety laws and “keep potentially harmful toys out of the hands of children.”According to a website for toymaker Keycraft Global, the 10-centimetre oval-shaped toys appear to hatch and reveal an elf when submerged and left in a glass of water.The toy shipment was valued at about $38,000.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Scouting Indiana Hoosiers Allin for IU

Indiana junior running back Devine Redding (34) runs in the first quarter against Florida International at Ocean Bank Field at FIU Stadium in Miami on Sept. 1. Indiana won, 34-13. Courtesy of TNSThe No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes enter Week 6 of the college football season as arguably the hottest team in the nation. Coach Urban Meyer’s defense leads the country with 9.3 points allowed per game, but will face a dynamic Indiana Hoosiers’ offense that has given OSU trouble in the past.“They have a good team. They have a good defense. They have a really good o-line,” Elflein said. “They always play us tough … so I expect the same. Those guys don’t lay down.”While OSU will be a heavy favorite on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in Ohio Stadium, the past meetings between the Buckeyes and coach Kevin Wilson’s Hoosiers have had the Scarlet and Gray on their heels, fighting for control of the game.If it weren’t for former running back Ezekiel Elliott’s three second-half touchdown runs of 55, 65 and 75 yards, the Buckeyes may not have escaped Bloomington, Indiana, with a victory.This season, OSU prepares for a revamped defense and the same potent offense.OffenseFor Wilson’s offense, its success starts with redshirt junior quarterback Richard Lagow. At 6-foot-6, 237 pounds, the Oklahoma State transfer has filled in nicely for departed quarterback Nate Sudfeld, who was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL draft.Lagow has thrown for 1,278 yards and nine touchdowns with a 62.2 completion percentage. He is averaging 319.5 passing yards per game, ranked first in the conference.If there is one knock on Lagow, it’s his willingness to throw the ball into traffic. The redshirt junior has thrown six interceptions in four games, which could spell disaster against a turnover-savvy OSU defense that holds a plus-eight turnover margin, ranking second in the nation and first in the Big Ten.At running back, Indiana has slowly developed one of the more impressive running back dynasties in recent years. Former running back Jordan Howard currently starts for the Chicago Bears, and Tevin Coleman plays a substantial amount of snaps for the Atlanta Falcons. Junior running back Devine Redding might be the next Hoosier back to make a name for himself in the NFL. After a 1,000-yard season in his 2015 sophomore campaign, Redding has already racked up 413 yards for an average of 103.2 yards per game, good for second in the Big Ten. OSU redshirt junior linebacker Chris Worley played with Redding in high school and described him as a downhill runner.The Hoosiers rank 22nd in the country in total offense with just under 500 total yards, but Wilson said that OSU’s defense is so talented that even if the Buckeye offense hadn’t played in a game, OSU would still be undefeated.“The structure is sound, they don’t misalign. To me it looks like there’s a lot of talent over there, but there’s a great competitive spirit with the team, and the kids are playing together and playing hard so they challenge every play,” Wilson said. “They make you compete every play to get every inch on the field.”Defense2001 was the last time the Buckeyes failed to score 30 points on the Hoosiers. And only five times since then has OSU failed to score 40 points. However, Meyer acknowledges that this team is different than past Indiana teams.“I see an outstanding team,” Meyer said. “This is by far their best team, and that is being very respectful of the other teams we’ve played against.”In 2015, Indiana ranked 121st in total defense and 117th in scoring defense. Wilson made a change to his staff in the season to make the Hoosiers a more well-rounded team.He brought on 24-year veteran coach Tom Allen as defensive coordinator and associate head coach. Allen’s previous job was at University of South Florida where he coached the Bulls to a league-best 19.6 points allowed per game. So far in 2016, Allen has revolutionized Indiana’s defense.The Hoosiers currently sit at 40th in scoring defense and 51st in total defense. Junior linebacker Tegray Scales leads the Crimson and Cream defense with 35 tackles, including 5.5 tackles for loss and two sacks. He had 13 tackles last week at home against Michigan State.While the Indiana defense has shown great improvement from last season’s incompetence, and Wilson and his staff doesn’t have to have nightmares of Ezekiel Elliott gashing the defense anymore, Wilson said there is still a lot of football to play before drawing conclusions of his defense.“They’ll get tested this week with speed, a lot of speed on the perimeter and one of the premier players in the country at quarterback (redshirt junior J.T. Barrett), so we’re playing harder,” he said. “We’re not the most talented group … but it really starts with strong leadership and direction from Tom Allen.”BreakdownThe Ohio State defense has been one of the most dominant defenses in the country through its first four games. Redshirt sophomore cornerback Marshon Lattimore and redshirt sophomore safety Malik Hooker each have three interceptions this season, and are looking for more.Last week against Rutgers was the first game that the defense did not force a turnover. However, it only allowed a measly 116 total yards of offense. The Buckeyes currently rank No. 1 in the country in scoring defense and No. 3 in total defense. While Redding, Lagow and company may cause a few hiccups for the OSU defense, the sheer speed and athleticism of the Silver Bullets should overcome any maladies in the early portion of the game.Indiana’s defense hasn’t put up a fight to the Buckeyes in the past, but this season, Barrett, redshirt freshman running back Mike Weber, junior H-back Curtis Samuel may not have as much success moving the ball as they have in the past.If consistent with the last two years, OSU might be trailing at points in the game on Saturday, but the Buckeyes have yet to show signs of slowing down their dominance on both sides of the ball.OSU should go into Madison, Wisconsin, next week at 5-0. read more

TeamCurrent Playoff%WinLossWgtd Swing How Oklahoma-TCU swings the playoff picturePotential changes in College Football Playoff probability for selected teams based on the outcome of the Oct. 20 Oklahoma-TCU game No. 6 Michigan (6-1) at No. 24 Michigan State (4-2)Favorite: Michigan (66.3 percent)Total potential CFP swing: 16.0 pointsThe stakes: Michigan’s season-opening loss to Notre Dame hurt its playoff chances, but research shows that, if you’re going to lose, it’s better to get it out of the way early and win out the rest of the season. Cross-state rival Michigan State is the Wolverines’ latest impediment to that plan, and the Spartans’ own meager playoff bid (which does exist!) received a shot in the arm when they beat Penn State in Happy Valley last week. There’s about a 1-in-3 chance that Sparty does the same to Michigan in East Lansing on Saturday, which would drop the Wolverines’ playoff probability to 5 percent (and elevate MSU’s to 7 percent). Georgia, Ohio State and Oklahoma would also get about a 1-point boost to their playoff probabilities if Michigan State wins. The Fighting Irish, however, are in an unfamiliar place here. Because of their head-to-head win over Michigan, Notre Dame fans should be rooting for Michigan to win, which would add about a half-point to the Irish’s chances of making the playoff.

Though it’s not overly likely — particularly since the game is in Death Valley — the Wolfpack do have the potential to pull off a huge surprise win. Despite a 5-0 record, NC State is still probably the nation’s best-kept secret (granted, its most impressive win so far is merely a 28-23 victory over Boston College), but it could really begin to gain national traction by knocking off Clemson. The Wolfpack’s playoff chances would rise to 37 percent with a win on Saturday, making them the rare unheralded team to make noise in today’s stratified college football world. Notre Dame and Ohio State should be rooting for the Wolfpack, too: The Irish would pick up 4 percentage points of playoff probability if Clemson loses, while the Buckeyes’ chances would improve by 3 percentage points. Clemson is an 18-point favorite, so don’t hold your breath, but this is still the game with the most potential playoff ramifications of any in Week 8. LSU13.6-0.4+1.80.7 Swing in playoff odds is weighted by the chance of each outcome — win or lose — actually happening.*Total swing includes every game in the country — not just those listed here.

Notre Dame50.1-0.5+2.10.8 Thanks to our College Football Playoff model — which simulates every game of the season to figure out each team’s chance of reaching the final four stage — we can see how much influence any given game has on the overall playoff picture. Most games have little to no effect, but some can potentially swing the playoff probabilities not just for the two schools involved but also for numerous teams around the country. To help you prepare for Week 8 of the college football season, here are the games that matter most this weekend in terms of their potential cumulative effect on the entire nation’s playoff chances. 17.7 Georgia22.0-0.6+1.20.8 Georgia22.0-0.5+1.30.7 Alabama64.5-1.0+1.91.3 No. 2 Ohio State (7-0) at Purdue (3-3)Favorite: Ohio State (81.2 percent)Total potential CFP swing: 15.9 pointsThe stakes: The Buckeyes are in great shape right now, sitting undefeated with a 52 percent chance of making the playoff. And on paper, the Boilermakers don’t pose too great a threat to Ohio State’s winning streak, ranking 41st in ESPN’s Football Power Index ratings. But the great thing about college football’s regular season is that no team is safe, and any loss can throw a season into disarray. A slip-up against Purdue would drop OSU’s playoff chances by a whopping 21 percentage points, and the biggest beneficiaries would be Clemson, Michigan and Notre Dame — each of whom would receive multiple points of playoff probability with the Buckeyes dropping down. Ohio State should win this one as 12-point favorites, making all of these possible shakeups moot, but the potential for anarchy is lurking. No. 9 Oklahoma (5-1) at TCU (3-3)Favorite: Oklahoma (72.1 percent)Total potential CFP swing: 17.7 pointsThe stakes: Last week, we talked about how Oklahoma could still make the College Football Playoff after losing to Texas earlier this month. The Sooners’ path hinged on taking care of business over their reasonably winnable remaining schedule and hoping for a peer like Notre Dame to slip up along the way. They almost got their wish for the latter with an Irish near-loss to Pitt, but OU’s own journey back starts with Saturday’s clash against the Horned Frogs. A loss would all but dash Oklahoma’s playoff hopes, and TCU is a tough opponent in spite of its 3-3 record, so the stakes for this one are already high from the Sooners’ perspective. But the game also picks up extra leverage from the fact that another loss would seriously damage OU’s chances of making the Big 12 championship (which helps conference leader Texas) and also remove it as a viable playoff rival for Notre Dame plus fellow one-loss squads LSU, Michigan and — now — Georgia, which fell to the Bayou Bengals last week. 15.9 Change in odds w/ Oklahoma… Georgia22.0-0.8+1.51.0 How LSU-Mississippi State swings the playoff picturePotential changes in College Football Playoff probability for selected teams based on the outcome of the Oct. 20 LSU-Mississippi State game Change in odds w/ LSU… TeamCurrent Playoff%WinLossWgtd Swing No. 5 LSU (6-1) vs. No. 22 Mississippi State (4-2)Favorite: LSU (64.7 percent)Total potential CFP swing: 15.9 pointsThe stakes: LSU, the other team whose odds we broke down a week ago, always needed to keep winning games in order to maintain its position as a playoff contender. It passed its first test with flying colors by upsetting Georgia last week, raising its playoff probability to 14 percent. That number would leap to 19 percent with a win over Mississippi State but plummet to 4 percent with a loss, effectively ending any realistic playoff chance for the Tigers. Those stakes are compounded by the slight gains for fellow SEC contenders Alabama and Georgia if Mississippi State can go into Baton Rouge and pull off the upset, to say nothing of the small playoff chance the Bulldogs would see (3 percent) if they win.

Pushy parents live vicariously through their children and become obsessed with trophyhunting

first_imgPushy parents are living vicariously through their children, obsessing over their progress and buying into a “trophy-hunting” culture, the deputy head of one of Britain’s top preparatory schools has warned.Children are being drawn into a “relentless cycle” of tutoring and “over-preparing” for classes, to feed their parents’ endless desire for success, said Loren Macallister of Shrewsbury House School in Surrey.Writing in the Spring edition of the education magazine, Attain, she described typical topics of conversation at parents’ coffee mornings and online discussions. The Government announced that it was seeking to introduce ‘tutor-proof’ tests as it plans to expand the number of grammar schools.The changes including a six hour interview process as opposed to the traditional hour, which head teachers believe will allow the child to relax and their real personality to shine through.Some schools will also question children on a surprise topic, on which they have had no time to prepare or receive tutoring to show their natural aptitude.You can read the full article by Loren Macallister, Deputy Head of Shrewsbury House School in the Spring edition of Attain magazine The chapel at Eton CollegeCredit:Peter Lane /Alamy In September it emerged that leading independent schools are changing their admissions tactics Eton College chapel In September it emerged that leading independent schools are changing their admissions tactics The £17,000-a-year school for boys aged seven to 13 acts as a feeder for some of the most prestigious institutions, with alumni going on to Eton College, Winchester College and St Paul’s.“In an increasingly results-driven prep school environment, both in London and beyond, parents are at risk of being drawn into the relentless cycle of tutoring, over-preparing and trophy-hunting in the desire for their children to succeed,” Ms Macallister said.center_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Parents are at risk of being drawn into the relentless cycle of tutoring, over-preparing and trophy-hunting in the desire for their children to succeedLoren Macallister, Deputy Head of Shrewsbury House School In September it emerged that leading independent schools are changing their admissions tactics and introducing six-hour entrance assessments in order to see through “over-tutored” pupils.Brighton College, Wellington College and Westminster are among those who are changing the way year-six students are examined in order to differentiate between the most naturally able and those who have received the most help. These include “Can you recommend a good tutor for French/Maths/English etc; our last one is really not working out” or “I really need our DS [darling son] in the top set.

Major blow to minority colleges in TS Congress

first_imgNampally: The Congress party has lashed out at the TRS Government for closure of 64 minority engineering, management, MCA and pharmaceutical colleges across Telangana State during the last five years. Blaming the government for the closures, the party also demanded the setting up of an independent commission to probe into the factors that led to their closure. Also Read – Techie strangled to death in Hyderabad Advertise With Us Addressing a press conference along with Hyderabad Congress Committee Minorities Department Chairman Sameer Waliullah at Gandhi Bhavan on Wednesday, Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) official spokesman Syed Nizamuddin said that the number of private unaided minority institutions in Telangana State has been reduced significantly ever since the TRS came to power in 2014. Also Read – JIH organises Eid Milap for sanitary workers Advertise With Us Citing statistics from All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Nizamuddin informed that the number of engineering and technology colleges has come down from 56 in 2014-15 to just 32 in 2019-20. It means that 24 minority engineering colleges have been closed under the TRS rule, he lamented. Similarly, 17 management colleges have been wound up with their number getting reduced from 67 in 2014-15 to 50 in 2019-20. Furthermore, 19 MCA and 3 pharmaceutical minority colleges have also been closed down during the last five years. Advertise With Us The Congress leader alleged that by not clearing the fee reimbursement dues, the TRS government pushed the private minority colleges into a financial crisis which ultimately resulted in their closure. By not giving scholarships, KCR government discouraged the minority students from pursuing higher education. The enrolment ratio too has gone down in private minority colleges. From 41.7% in 2014-15, it came down to just 36.51% in 2018-19. While a total of 23,706 students enrolled themselves in various colleges in 2014-15, the total enrolment in 2018-19 was a mere 14,650. “Closure of 64 colleges and reduction in intake of 25,019 students is the achievement of the KCR government,” he lamented. Nizamuddin said Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao came to power in 2014 on the slogan of ‘KG to PG Free Education for All’. He had also promised 12% reservation for Muslims in jobs and education. “Due to non-implementation of the fee reimbursement scheme and scholarships, minority students were discouraged from pursuing higher education,” he alleged. Nizamuddin said that the situation at the national level under the BJP-led NDA Government was no different. At the all-India level, the number of institutions has increased from 884 in 2014-15 to 905 in 2019-20 registering an increase by 21 institutions. However, the intake has reduced from 3,64,566 in 2014-15 to 3,27,461. This means the overall intake has reduced by 37,105 students. “The reduction shows how much the BJP Government believes in ‘Sabka Saath – Sabka Vikas’,” he added.last_img read more

New model describes cognitive decision making as the collapse of a quantum

first_img Explore further Diagram of a state representation of a Markov and a quantum random walk model. In the Markov model, evidence (shaded state) evolves over time by moving from state to state, occupying one definite evidence level at any given time. In the quantum model the decision-maker is in an indefinite evidence state, with each evidence level having a probability amplitude (shadings) at each point in time. Credit: (c) 2015 PNAS; doi:10.1073/pnas.1500688112 This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. © 2015 Phys.org But the Markov random walk theory, based in classical probability theory, runs into problems when confronted with the emerging research consensus that preferences and beliefs are constructed, rather than revealed by judgments and decisions. An international group of psychological researchers now suggests a new model called the quantum random walk (QRW) theory that specifically posits that preferences and beliefs are constructed rather than revealed by judgments and decisions, and they have published the results of an experiment that support this theory in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.By contrast with MRW, the new theory assumes that evidence develops over time in a superposition state analogous to the wave-like state of a photon, and judgements and decisions are made when this indefinite superposition state “collapses” into a definite state of evidence. It’s important to note that the researchers are not suggesting that the brain is a quantum computer; they specifically note that their report uses quantum dynamics only metaphorically.In the experiment, nine study participants completed 112 blocks of 24 trials each over five sessions, in which they viewed a random dot motion stimulus on a screen. A percentage of the dots moved coherently in a single direction. The researchers manipulated the difficulty of the test between trials. In the choice condition, participants were asked to decide whether the coherently moving dots were traveling to the left or the right. In the no-choice condition, participants were prompted by an audio tone simply to make a motor response. Then participants were asked to rate their confidence that the coherently moving dots were traveling to the right on a scale ranging from 0 (certain left) to 100 percent (certain right). The researchers report that, on average, confidence ratings were much higher when the trajectories of the dots were highly coherent. Confidence ratings were lower in the no-choice condition than in the choice condition, providing evidence against the read-out assumption of MRW theory, which holds that confidence in the choice condition should be higher.The QRW theory posits that evidence evolves over time, as in MRW, but that judgments and decisions create a new definite state from an indefinite, superposition-like state. “This quantum perspective reconceptualizes how we model uncertainty and formalizes a long-held hypothesis that judgments and decisions create rather than reveal preferences and beliefs,” the authors write.They conclude, “…quantum random walk theory provides a previously unexamined perspective on the nature of the evidence accumulation process that underlies both cognitive and neural theories of decision making.” More information: “Interference effects of choice on confidence: Quantum characteristics of evidence accumulation.” PNAS, published ahead of print August 10, 2015, DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1500688112AbstractDecision-making relies on a process of evidence accumulation which generates support for possible hypotheses. Models of this process derived from classical stochastic theories assume that information accumulates by moving across definite levels of evidence, carving out a single trajectory across these levels over time. In contrast, quantum decision models assume that evidence develops over time in a superposition state analogous to a wavelike pattern and that judgments and decisions are constructed by a measurement process by which a definite state of evidence is created from this indefinite state. This constructive process implies that interference effects should arise when multiple responses (measurements) are elicited over time. We report such an interference effect during a motion direction discrimination task. Decisions during the task interfered with subsequent confidence judgments, resulting in less extreme and more accurate judgments than when no decision was elicited. These results provide qualitative and quantitative support for a quantum random walk model of evidence accumulation over the popular Markov random walk model. We discuss the cognitive and neural implications of modeling evidence accumulation as a quantum dynamic system.center_img Certainty in our choices often a matter of time, study finds Citation: New model describes cognitive decision making as the collapse of a quantum superstate
 (2015, August 12) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2015-08-cognitive-decision-collapse-quantum-superstate.html (Phys.org)—Decision making in an enormous range of tasks involves the accumulation of evidence in support of different hypotheses. One of the enduring models of evidence accumulation is the Markov random walk (MRW) theory, which assigns a probability to each hypothesis. In an MRW model of decision making, when deciding between two hypotheses, the cumulative evidence for and against each hypothesis reaches different levels at different times, moving particle-like from state to state and only occupying a single definite evidence level at any given point.

UN Grants Special Consultative Status to KISS

first_imgThe Special Consultative Status confers a host of privileges and facilities on an NGO, which are similar to those conferred to a member country by the UN. Induction of an NGO in this elite group follows a ratification process similar to membership of a new country in the UN. The United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN-ECOSOC) granted the prestigious recognition to KISS after concurrence by representatives of all the member countries. So far only six NGOs from India have got this recognition, this year KISS was added to the list.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’It is the first NGO from Odisha to get Special Consultative Status from the UN. A communication to this effect from the UN Headquarters was received by the KISS authorities on July 23, 2015.  The KISS authorities had made a presentation for grant of Special Consultative Status at UN Headquarters, New York in front of the representatives of the all member countries of the UN in February 2014. Following detailed discussion, all representatives accorded their approval, except two countries who wanted more information. It took KISS authorities one year to satisfy the queries raised by these two countries.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixSubsequently, resolution to grant Special Consultative Status to KISS was adopted unanimously. KISS which had a humble beginning as a residential tribal school in 1993 in a rented house with only 125 students, is now the largest free residential tribal institute of the world with 25,000 students providing education from KG to PG. It has been actively engaged in fulfilling the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) of the UN. The Special Consultative Status for KISS is a matter of great pride and glory not only for itself, but also for the entire tribal community of Odisha, the state of Odisha as well as the country.last_img read more

Report Apple Could Release New iPod Models Tomorrow

first_img Remember the humble iPod? The other high-tech must-have that people used to line up outside Apple stores to buy, years before everyone fell for the iPhone? Well, hold your earbuds because rumor has it the Cupertino colossus’ first pocket digital jukebox could make a comeback as early as tomorrow. Operative part of that sentence = rumor. Maybe, just maybe, Apple might release a new, improved line of iPods mañana, that is if a recent report by iGen rings true. (We reached out to Apple to check if it is, but, predictably, we have yet to hear back.) The French website claims that the California company is poised to release new iPod touch, nano and shuffle models, perchance just in time for #TakeMeBackTuesday. The possible new models could even come in fun colors like fuchsia, gold and electric blue, along with the standard black, pink and grey.Also as part of the potential rollout, the iPod touch, Apple’s first touchscreen iPod, could arrive decked out with a faster processor, perhaps a 64-bit upgrade. It doesn’t look like its cousins, the shuffle and the mini, will come equipped with faster processors.    Related: How Dumb Is This Apple iPod Antitrust Suit?The last iPod touch refresh arrived in 2012. On top of a potentially speedier processor, the rumored new iPod touch could also feature camera improvements and additional storage space, according to Apple Insider.The speculation from iGen, which is quickly making the rounds and equally quickly devolving into a game of “Telephone,” appears to have been spawned by a somehow eyebrow-raising new snippet of code spotted in the latest iTunes 12.2 software.Of course, all of this gossip bears a grain of salt, as it doesn’t take much to spark rumors about any and all things Apple. Then again, Apple stepping up its dated music hardware would dovetail nicely with its new Apple Music offering. One might lead to more sales of the other.Related: Richard Branson’s Biggest Mistake: Inventing the iPod… as a PrankApple Music also raised a few eyebrows this week, and not in the best way at the Federal Trade Commission. Investigators from the government agency are digging into whether Apple’s treatment of rival streaming music apps, like Spotify, Jango and Rhapsody, violate U.S. antitrust laws.But let’s get back to the good, old iPod. Apple’s digital successor to the portable audio cassette music player first debuted in October 2001. Apple Computer co-founder Steve Jobs described his company’s inaugural iPod as “the 21st-century Walkman.” The all-white device, a Walkman killer indeed, rolled out with the brilliantly simple advertising tagline “Say Hello to iPod. 1,000 songs in your pocket.”Who knows? Perhaps tomorrow we’ll all say hello to an all-new iPod or a few. Or not. We’ll keep you posted.Related: 5 Things I Learned About Successful Startups From Steve Jobs Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

In this Sunday Dec 10 2017 photo released by Sa

first_img In this Sunday, Dec. 10, 2017 photo released by Santa Barbara County Fire Department, a home burns early Sunday morning off Gobernador Canyon Road in Carpinteria, Calif. A flare-up on the western edge of Southern California’s largest and most destructive wildfire sent residents fleeing Sunday, as wind-fanned flames churned through canyons and down hillsides toward coastal towns. Crews with help from water-dropping aircraft saved several homes as unpredictable gusts sent the blaze churning deeper into foothill areas northwest of Los Angeles that haven’t burned in decades. New evacuations were ordered in Carpinteria, a seaside city in Santa Barbara County that has been under fire threat for days. (Mike Eliason/Santa Barbara County Fire Department via AP) The Latest: Trump gets briefing on California fire response by The Associated Press Posted Dec 11, 2017 10:48 am PDT Last Updated Dec 11, 2017 at 1:40 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img LOS ANGELES, Calif. – The Latest on California wildfires (all times local):1:20 p.m.President Donald Trump has received a lunchtime briefing on the government’s response to wildfires in California.White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters says Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue also briefed Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence on a wildfire prevention roundtable he participated in Monday.Trump has declared a state of emergency in the state and ordered federal agencies to help with the efforts.Walters says the White House “continues to closely monitor the situation” and is urging “anyone ordered to evacuate during a wildfire, do so immediately and listen to your local and state officials.”She also says the White House “extends its thoughts and prayers” to everyone affected by the fires that have been tearing through Southern California.___10:50 a.m.Authorities have issued new alerts about unhealthy air from smoke and ash sent up by a growing Southern California wildfire.Richard Sanchez, a manager at Jeannine’s American Bakery Restaurant in the foothill enclave of Montecito, says customers are coming in Monday wearing masks. He says smoke is so thick that visibility is down to a few feet and a layer of ash is coating the streets.Regulators are warning people in parts of Santa Barbara, Ventura and Los Angeles counties to stay indoors, avoid vigorous outdoor activities and not do anything to stir up ash.Even residents of Montecito and neighbouring Carpinteria who aren’t under evacuation orders have opted to leave because of the thick blanket of smoke.___7:45 a.m.A growing Southern California wildfire is threatening the wealthy seaside enclave of Montecito, where celebrities have evacuated estates perched on hillsides below heavy flames.Smoke shrouded Rob Lowe’s home and the actor wore a mask as he livestreamed his family leaving on Sunday. Lowe thanked fans on Instagram for their thoughts and expressed gratitude for firefighters, saying “we need you!”Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres said on Twitter that neighbours were helping each other and their animals get to safety. She said she was proud to be a part of the small, exclusive community in Santa Barbara County northwest of Los Angeles.Retired tennis star Jimmy Connors tweeted that his property was in danger.Many residents of Montecito and neighbouring Carpinteria not under evacuation orders have opted to leave because of heavy smoke and ash blowing through.___5:30 a.m.Crews aided by calm overnight winds kept a wall of flames from descending from mountains into coastal towns after a huge Southern California wildfire exploded in size over the weekend.Thousands remain under evacuation orders Monday as the fire churns west through foothill areas of Carpinteria and Montecito, Santa Barbara County seaside towns about 75 miles (120 kilometres) northwest of Los Angeles. Much of the fire’s new growth occurred on the eastern and northern fronts into unoccupied areas of Los Padres National Forest.The fire, which had already destroyed more than 750 buildings, burned six more in Carpinteria on Sunday. It’s just 10 per cent contained after burning nearly 360 square miles (930 square kilometres).Officials say the blaze, which broke out a week ago in neighbouring Ventura County, is now the 5th largest in California history.last_img read more
