Panathinaikos Dusts Olympiakos Again

first_imgPanathinaikos’ hoopsters couldn’t seem to buy a win in Euroleague basketball play and they can’t seem to lose against Greek league archrival Olympiakos, putting a 66-62 defeat on the Reds, the third straight victory over their court enemy – this one in group play for the European tourney.The key was once was clamping down on Olympiakos’ captain and sharpshooter, Vassilis Spanoulis, usually a clutch player who hit only 2-of-12 from the field and had one free throw, the difference in a game that as close all the way.It wasn’t decided until the end, mirroring a tight match that saw the victors holding only a 35-33 edge at half, before a second half that was thrilling with lead changes and back-and-forth full-court passionate play.The home advantage held up for Panathinaikos as their defense held Olympiakos to only one point in the last two minutes. James “Airline” Gist came off an injury to dog Spanoulis and make him a non-factor.Stephane Lasme led the winners with 18 points while Roko Udic added 14.  For Olympiakos, Stratos Perperoglou had 12 and Giorgos Printezis scored 10.With the Euroleague warning of sanctions for rowdy fan behavior, Panathinaikos supporters steered clear of their frequent hooliganism although many of the games between the two teams have been marked by fan violence and clashes.The result means that Panathinaikos and Olympiakos are now tied along with Armani Milano in second at the table with a 4-3 record at the halfway point of the group.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Malta 0 England 4

first_imgMalta 0 England 4: Kane at the double as Three Lions enjoy late flurry Rob Lancaster Last updated 2 years ago 05:00 9/2/17 Harry Kane_England_cropped Getty Images England flattered to deceive at times, but ultimately coasted to a 4-0 World Cup qualifying win at Malta. Harry Kane scored twice as England earned a flattering 4-0 win at Malta to close on qualification for the 2018 World Cup.The visitors were frustrated for much of Friday’s World Cup qualifying Group F encounter at the WTa’ Qali National Stadium against a side that have yet to register a point in the pool.But Kane made the breakthrough in the 53rd minute with his fourth goal in his past three internationals, providing the finish after Dele Alli’s clever square pass had set up his club colleague. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina A workmanlike, at times ugly, victory was secured four minutes from time when Ryan Bertrand found the net for his country for the first time, hitting a long-range shot beyond goalkeeper Andrew Hogg.Substitute Danny Welbeck added a third in injury time before Kane completed the scoring to round off a victory that was not a fair reflection on the home side’s determined efforts.England’s highly-paid collection of Premier League stars had struggled to break down a Malta side that had conceded at least two goals in nine of their last 10 World Cup qualifiers.Still, while the game will not live too long in the memory, the result is all that really mattered for England, who sit two points clear at the summit of Group F ahead of a crucial home clash with nearest rivals Slovakia – who beat Slovenia 1-0 – on Monday.4 – Harry Kane has now scored four goals in his last three appearances for @England, with all four coming away from home. Opener.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) September 1, 2017Interim manager when the teams met last October, Gareth Southgate refused to take the Maltese challenge lightly, Jordan Henderson captaining a strong side that included new Liverpool team-mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the right wing.England had laboured to a 2-0 win against Malta nearly a year ago, yet could have matched their meagre goal tally at Wembley inside five minutes of the return fixture in Attard.Hogg had to be alert to deny Raheem Sterling a shooting opportunity in the opening seconds, while the London-born goalkeeper also showed impressive reactions to turn away a firm header from Kane.Yet after a such a lively start, England laboured for the remainder of the first half, failing to match the tempo set by the incessant supporters’ band inside the ground.The visitors did have the ball in the net when Phil Jones nodded in a corner from the left, only for the defender’s effort to be ruled out following a foul in the crowded area.Strong in the tackle and stubborn in defence, Malta were rightly applauded off by their supporters at the break. England, in contrast, left the field to a mixture of groans and boos.Southgate reacted to a tepid first-half performance by introducing Marcus Rashford, the forward replacing the ineffective Sterling on the left flank.Malta were the side to threaten a goal first after the break, though, Andre Schembri firing a low shot close enough for goalkeeper Joe Hart to throw himself to his right, albeit the effort ended up going wide.However, the breakthrough finally arrived for England courtesy of Tottenham’s attacking double act, Alli keeping his composure in a crowded penalty area to allow the supporting Kane to slot low beyond Hogg.England continued to toil, but Bertrand’s left-footed drive in the 85th minute squeezed under Hogg to put the game beyond Malta.There was more to come in injury time, as first Welbeck – who replaced Oxlade-Chamberlain – squeezed in front of Hogg to prod home a third, before Kane smashed home from Rashford’s inch-perfect throughball. Key Opta stats:- England maintained their 100 per cent record against Malta in international competition, beating them for the fifth time in five meetings.- The Three Lions earned their first away victory since Gareth Southgate took charge, having failed to win any of their previous four under him (D2 L2). – England have netted at least two goals in seven of their nine games under the 46-year-old. – Harry Kane is England’s top scorer under Gareth Southgate with five goals; more than twice as many as any of his teammates. – Kane has now scored five goals in his last three appearances for England, with all five coming away from home.- Danny Welbeck has scored seven goals in his last eight games for England, however this was his first since March 2015 (v Lithuania). – Ryan Bertrand is the first Southampton player to score for England since Rickie Lambert in June 2014 (v Ecuador).- Dele Alli has been involved in just two goals in his last 10 international appearances, however both have come against Malta (one goal, one assist).  read morelast_img read more

Biggest Ever Boxship to Transit Panama Canal in May

first_imgzoomContainership Triton; Source: Wikimedia – under the CC BY-SA 3.0 license; Image by: Bumblebee The Panama Canal is set to welcome its biggest ever containership in mid-May, according to Alphaliner.Namely, Taiwan’s Evergreen would assign the maxi-Neopanamax Triton, a vessel with a 20-row beam of 51.2 meters and a length of 369 meters, to a Panama Canal-routed Far East – USEC service.The 14,424 TEU Triton will become the first-ever containership of this beam and length to transit the canal. Currently deployed on the Far East – USWC route, the Triton will join Evergreen’s Far East – USEC service AUE, part of the OCEAN Alliance network, on April 18.The ship is scheduled to transit the Panama Canal on May 15, en route from Kaohsiung to Colon, from where it will continue to ports on the US East Coast. With the Triton’s passage, Evergreen will be the first carrier to make use of the Panama Canal Authority’s (ACP) revised neo-panamax gauge.One year ago, in April 2018, the ACP announced to increase the allowable beam for vessels transiting the new canal locks from 49 meters (19 rows) to 51.25 meters (20 rows). The revised rule came into force on June 1, 2018, after nearly two years of successful operations of the new canal locks.While allowing a wider beam, the new transit regime retained the 366 m maximum vessel length restriction. However, the ACP said that it would consider to accept ships of up to 369 meters, such as the Triton, on a case by case basis.The largest containerships deployed on trans-Panama routes so far have been Neopanamax VLCS with 19 row beams of up to 48.4 meters and a maximum length of 366 meters.last_img read more

Right to housing to be mainstay of 40B national housing plan Duclos

first_imgOTTAWA – The federal minister in charge of a decade-long housing strategy says the plan will be based on a “right to housing” as he faces criticism the Liberals are watering down the pledge.Characterizing housing as a human right was meant to provide recourse — either through tribunals or the courts — to anyone wrongfully denied an apartment or home for reasons such as ethnicity, religion, or gender identity.It was also to put pressure on governments to maintain their housing commitments and ensure a future federal government couldn’t easily cancel the 10-year, multibillion-dollar national housing strategy unveiled in November.The Liberal government’s first thoughts on the rights legislation are contained in a recently released discussion paper that coincided with the start of consultations.The NDP accuse the Liberals of touting the right to housing as “an empty slogan,” saying the document shows the government doesn’t intend to follow through fully on the pledge.Social Development Minister Jean-Yves Duclos says the Liberal plan rests on a human-rights based approach.“These investments (will) reduce homelessness and take 500,000 Canadians out of housing that is either unaffordable or is inadequate, and that will be based on the right to housing,” Duclos said Monday in the House of Commons.The four pillars of the rights proposal are inclusiveness, helping those in the greatest need; accountability, requiring regular reporting to Parliament about national housing efforts; participation, through the creation of a national housing watchdog; and non-discrimination, eliminating systemic issues that prevent people from finding a home.Consultations on the proposal close June 1. The legislation is expected to be introduced later this year.The national housing strategy takes $26 billion in promised new spending to go with previously promised funding and expected cash from provinces, territories and the private sector that combined to push spending over $40 billion.All the spending is supposed to happen over the next 10 years, much of it after the 2019 election.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version incorrectly stated the total amount of federal spending in the national housing strategy as $26 billion.last_img read more

Miami Heat Recovers in Victory Over Washington Wizards

(SportsNetwork.com) – It’s too early to panic for the Miami Heat, as they try to stop a two-game slide and even their season record in Sunday’s home matchup with the Washington Wizards at AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami.The two-time champion Heat opened defense of their title with a win against the Chicago Bulls, then headed to Philadelphia the following night, only to suffer a 114-110 loss. The Heat trailed 19-0 from the jump before rallying to take the lead against the Sixers, but were outscored 15-3 at the end of the game.Miami then faced one of the East’s top teams in Brooklyn on Friday and suffered a 101-100 loss to Paul Pierce and company. Pierce and Joe Johnson scored 19 points apiece and Kevin Garnett had six points and seven rebounds in less than 26 minutes.LeBron James led the Heat with a game-high 26 points, while Dwyane Wade returned to the lineup after resting in Philly to post 21 points. Chris Bosh scored 17 points and Miami shot 47.8 percent for the game, including 7-of-14 from 3-point territory.The Nets, who had an early 11-3 lead, used an 18-2 run to grab a 71-55 cushion with 4:16 remaining in the third quarter. Miami made a valiant effort with a 33-23 advantage in the fourth stanza.“We’ve dealt with this before. This story line continues,” Wade said of the team’s struggles. “At the end of the day, we want to play better. We would love to play better, obviously the start, the first and the third, but we had a chance to win the game. We have to find a way to pull it out.”Brooklyn edged the Heat in rebounds, 40-30. The last time the Heat lost three in a row was  Jan. 10-13, 2011. After consecutive road games, Miami is slated to play five of six in south Florida.Much like the Heat, the Wizards fell victim to the Sixers in Friday’s 109-102 setback at the Verizon Center. The 76ers erased a 12-point deficit in the third quarter and Sixers rookie Michael Carter-Williams hit a 3-pointer with 6:28 to play to give his team its first lead, which they would never relinquish, and spoil Washington’s home opener.Wizards star John Wall scored 23 points in the first half, but was limited to three over the last 24 minutes.“They scored 65 points in the second half, so we didn’t do a great job of finishing,” said Wall. “It’s embarrassing to lose your home opener when you had a great chance of doing it.”Martell Webster had 13 points off the bench and his 3-pointer with 1:15 to play cut the Sixers lead to just three. Trevor Ariza and Marcin Gortat had 12 points apiece in defeat. No. 3 draft pick Otto Porter remained out for the Wizards because of a right hip flexor injury and is questionable Sunday. Center Nene missed Friday’s game with a strained left calf and could return against the Southeast Division-rival Heat.Philadelphia owned the paint and scored 74 points inside.The Wizards are 0-2 for a fourth straight season and were 0-12 to kick off the 2012-13 campaign. They lost three of four matchups with Miami a year ago and have dropped 15 of the last 19 matchups between the teams.Washington has lost 15 of 19 and 17 of its last 22 at Miami. read more

Des couleurs fluorescentes au fond de locéan les nudibranches mollusques à laspect

first_imgDes couleurs fluorescentes au fond de l’océan : les nudibranches, mollusques à l’aspect exceptionnel, en imagesLes nudibranches sont des mollusques gastéropodes, tout comme les escargots et les limaces. Toutefois, à la différence de ces derniers, ils ne se fondent pas dans le paysage. Bien au contraire, leurs couleurs fluorescentes contrastent avec les abysses de l’océan pour un rendu souvent spectaculaire.En plus de leurs couleurs, ces mollusques ont une forme particulière qui, hormis le fait qu’elle intrigue l’œil humain, permet d’éloigner les prédateurs.À lire aussiUn mollusque cannibale engloutit l’un de ses congénères Les nudibranches sont des animaux hermaphrodites, ils possèdent les organes génitaux des deux sexes. Cependant, ils peuvent rarement se reproduire seuls. Comme les papillons, ces créatures ont une espérance de vie assez faible, avoisinant généralement un an, mais certaines espèces vivent moins d’un mois.Les branchies des nudibranches, comme leur nom l’indique, sont nues. Ces mollusques mesurent de 2,5 cm à 60 cm et vivent dans les eaux salées de toute la surface du globe.

Le H5N1 plus courant et moins dangereux quon ne le pense

first_imgLe H5N1, plus courant et moins dangereux qu’on ne le pense ?Selon une étude américaine, la grippe aviaire, connue pour être une maladie rare, pourrait être plus courante mais moins mortelle qu’on ne le pensait.L’étude qui vient d’être publiée dans la revue Science pourrait atténuer les craintes qu’une éventuelle pandémie de grippe aviaire ne tue des millions de personnes. En effet, des chercheurs de l’école de médecine Mount-Sinai, à New York, ont analysé 20 études internationales qui reposaient sur des tests sanguins effectués sur près de 13.000 participants dans le monde. Ils alors constaté qu’entre 1 et 2% des participants montraient des signes d’une infection passée de la grippe aviaire.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?De tels résultats indiquent que des millions de personnes auraient pu être infectées dans le monde sans savoir qu’ils avaient eu la grippe aviaire. Or, les chiffres officiels de l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) font état de seulement 573 cas dans 15 pays depuis 2003 (dont 58,6% des malades sont morts). “Nous suggérons qu’une enquête plus approfondie, menée à une échelle plus large et respectant une approche standardisée, permettrait de mieux estimer le nombre total d’infections H5N1 qui ont touché des humains”, écrivent les auteurs de cette recherche. Pour eux, l’OMS aurait en fait mal appréhendé la maladie en ne s’intéressant qu’aux infections qui ont donné lieu à des hospitalisations et à des symptômes sévères. Évaluer le nombre réel de malades pourraient ainsi s’avérer d’une importance cruciale. Le 24 février 2012 à 13:26 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Les chimpanzés émettraient des cris dalarme pour prévenir leurs proches

first_imgLes chimpanzés émettraient des cris d’alarme pour prévenir leurs prochesUne étude expérimentale menée sur des chimpanzés sauvages d’Ouganda a montré que les cris d’alarme ont leur spécificité propre. Lancés par ces singes en présence d’un danger, loin d’être instinctifs et incontrôlés, ils sont destinés à des individus particuliers du groupe en fonction des circonstances.Une équipe de chercheurs, dirigée par le docteur Katie Slocombe et le docteur Anne Schelling, du Département de psychologie de l’Université d’York (Royaume-Uni), a étudié le comportement de chimpanzés sauvages du site de Sonso, dans la réserve forestière de Budongo, en Ouganda. Face à un prédateur, en l’occurrence, un serpent factice animé, ils ont observé leurs réactions. La structure sociale du groupe de primates était déjà connue des chercheurs.Deux faits ont alors retenu l’attention des scientifiques. Premièrement, les cris d’alarme poussés par les individus ayant aperçu le serpent se poursuivaient jusqu’à ce que tous les membres du groupe soient en sécurité. Deuxièmement, l’avertissement vocal lancé par un individu était plus marqué s’il s’adressait à un individu qui lui était socialement proche, comme un parent ou un ami, explique l’étude publiée dans la revue PLoS ONE. “L’observation des chimpanzés réagissant au faux serpent était intrigante. C’était particulièrement frappant lorsque de nouveaux individus, qui n’avaient pas encore vu le serpent, arrivaient sur les lieux : si un chimpanzé qui, lui, avait vu le serpent, entretenait une amitié étroite avec l’un de ces nouveaux venus, il lançait des cris d’alarme, avertissant son ami du danger. Il semblerait que les chimpanzés destinaient vraiment leurs cris d’alarme à certains individus”, souligne le Dr Schelling.Avertir du dangerÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?L’idée selon laquelle ces cris sont dictés par la seule frayeur et dépourvus d’intentionnalité est donc bien loin, estiment les chercheurs. “Ces comportements indiquent que ces cris d’alarme ont été produits intentionnellement pour avertir les autres du danger. L’étude montre donc une similitude clé entre les mécanismes impliqués dans la production de vocalisations chez les chimpanzés et le langage humain”, explique le Dr Slocombe.”Nos résultats démontrent que certaines vocalisations de nos plus proches parents peuvent être considérés comme des signaux intentionnels, d’une manière directement comparable à beaucoup de gestes des grands singes. Ceci indique que le langage humain peut provenir d’un système de communication multimodal, vocal et gestuel”, conclut la scientifique.Le 19 octobre 2013 à 14:14 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Redknapp Ole deserves credit for improving United

first_imgJamie Redknapp praised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for improving Manchester United players after suggesting they “downed tools” under the previous manager Jose Mourinho.United continued Solskjaer’s 100% run with the sixth win thanks to Marcus Rashford’s goal before the break.However, Paul Pogba, who provided a brilliant assist for the goal stole the headlines with his display but Redknapp feels all the players have raised their game in recent weeks.“I just think Pogba is enjoying his football. He has freedom, he has a manager that believes in him, but the point is it’s not just Pogba, it’s everybody,” he told Sky.“Pogba is so high profile that he’s the one we focus on, but what about all the other players? What about the goalkeeper [David de Gea] that couldn’t make a save to save his life a while ago, now he looks like the keeper we all knew.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.“It’s the same for every player in that United side. They had downed tools for the last manager, whether you like it or not, it was so obvious. I have watched United this season and they have been diabolical for pretty much all of it.“All of a sudden a new manager comes in and they have a bit of freedom and they are enjoying it and Pogba looks like the player from the World Cup.“Ole deserves credit but I don’t think it needed a rocket scientist to go in there and do that. It was purely because the other manager they weren’t keen on and they couldn’t wait for a new manager to come in. He has come in and now they are playing well and playing at the level they should be.“It’s not just about Pogba but I do think he’s a good player who sometimes needs to be told that. I don’t think he’s as confident as he makes out with social media, I think he needs an arm around the shoulder like most good players.”last_img read more

Following Up With PopUp Magazine From the Other Side of the Curtain

first_imgLast month we went behind the scenes of Pop-Up Magazine, to learn more about its origins and business model. In only a few short years, the live experiential magazine has gained traction for its unique brand of storytelling. The touring series has already outgrown its past New York venues—the Town Hall and David Geffen Hall in Manhattan. But it may have already outgrown its newest home in the city after a sold-out show this past Saturday at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Howard Gilman Opera House.The buzz around Pop-up Magazine, along with its quick growth, makes sense to this reporter, after a raucously entertaining yet thought-provoking evening.The Howard Gilman Opera House is just a block away from the Barclays Center, and it’s a cavernous, gorgeous hunk of history in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene neighborhood. It’s almost nearly double the size of the Town Hall, which is a regular host to many notable music and stage acts. Billed as a live performance of what you’d find in the pages of a magazine, the show even includes elements like an editor’s note from editor-in-chief, Douglas McGray, as well as live native advertisements. And the entire night was given great coherence from the show’s five-piece band, Magik*Magik Orchestra, headed by bandleader/keyboardist Minna Choi.The band backs many of the storytelling sets, as well as all of the integrated advertisements. Many of the acts within the show are accompanied by photos or animated short films. For instances, a piece titled “Let’s Talk About Sax” was performed by writer James Bennett II and was complemented with a saxophone score by Travis Sullivan.Bennett gave a hilarious, albeit abbreviated, timeline of the instrument’s history. From Kenny G tunes to George Michael’s “Careless Whisper,” Sullivan was right there with him playing the famous saxophone parts.There were several stories told over the course of the evening that were moving, even borderline gut-wrenching for the audience, but they all had moments of levity or instances that revealed the goodness in humanity.“It’s amazing to be at an event that finds the crossroads between storytelling, technology and music.”Take for example Erin Lee Carr, daughter of the late New York Times’ media columnist David Carr, who spoke of her father and shared some of his retweets from critics after he said that people from Missouri and Kansas have “low, sloping foreheads” on “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Or photojournalist Kirsten Luce, who captured images of drug cartel activity on Texas’s border along the Rio Grande, and contrasted that devastation by sharing photos of families playing in the river and farmers bathing their horses. Cathartic moments like those helped the show strike a consistent balance throughout the evening.The most similar experience that Pop-Up Magazine can be compared to would be the live taping of a major podcast. From the attention given to stories to the excitement of hearing live music to the belly laughter at a stand up show—it’s all there. And as I learned after the show when talking to theatergoers (at a jam-packed cocktail mixer in the lobby), they felt like as if they were there with the performers the whole night through.“It’s amazing to be at an event that finds the crossroads between storytelling, technology and music,” said Scott N., a podcast producer in New York.Besides the large HD screen behind the performers, the technology he refers to is also the interactive elements of the show. Rose Eveleth’s act, “Welcome to Vanguard Estates,” was a choose-your-own-adventure that included the entire audience. Together, we all navigated the future of elderly care as many experts are predicting it.In everyone’s program there was a tiny envelope that read “Don’t open me. Yet.” Inside were two tiny glow sticks—one green, one orange. From housing run by robots to seeing a livestream of your aging parents, the entire audience chose how to proceed in this predicted future by raising either glowstick.As with most of the acts, there was loud laughter throughout—this was an incredibly vocal audience. And at the end of the evening, I was hard-pressed to find someone who didn’t enjoy the show or wouldn’t recommend it to a friend. But more impressive was the number of people who said they would come again, or that this was not their first time at a Pop-Up Magazine event—including Scott N., who had been at the previous Town Hall show last year.One couple, Jeff M. and Martin C., local college students, said that they couldn’t wait until the next Pop-Up came to the area.“I absolutely loved it,” said Martin. “This is definitely something that I’d  be excited to go see again.”“We’ve never been to one of these before, but a friend of ours that went to the Town Hall show told us about it and said they loved it,” Jeff added.At a time when much of the magazine industry is looking to events as another revenue stream, Pop-Up Magazine seems to have found a formula that works. Half that formula is something that magazines have been doing for nearly 200 years—telling great stories. The other half is creating a great experience that people want to be a part of.If nothing else, the liveliness of the crowd and the excitement in the air afterwards suggests that Pop-Up Magazine is doing something right.last_img read more

Taborama for Firefox combines Tab Groups with Containers

first_imgTaborama for Firefox combines Tab Groups with Containers by Martin Brinkmann on September 05, 2017 in Firefox – Last Update: October 08, 2017 – 12 commentsTaborama is an experimental add-on for the Firefox web browser that combines the use of containers with Tab Groups functionality.Mozilla removed the Tab Groups functionality from the Firefox web browser some time ago. While Firefox users may install extensions such as Tab Groups or Simplified Tab Groups to reintroduce the functionality in the browser, at least some of these extensions will stop functioning once Firefox 57 gets released.Mozilla plans to cut support for legacy add-ons in Firefox 57; this means that any extension that is not compatible with the WebExtensions standard by then, will cease to work in Firefox.Update: Taborama has been renamed to Conex.TaboramaTaborama is a WebExtension. This means that it is compatible with Firefox 57 and future versions of the web browser. In fact, it can only be installed in Firefox 57 right now.The extension brings back tab grouping functionality, and combines it with Firefox’s own Containers feature. First launched as a Test Pilot experiment, Containers will become a native Firefox feature.Containers separate open sites and services from each other to improve accessibility and privacy.The combination of Tab Groups with Containers makes sense if you think about it. Tab Groups provide you with options to sort tabs into groups and work with just one group of them. Containers group tabs as well making it a natural fit.The extension is not fully usable yet. That’s not the developer’s fault though as the API to show and hide tabs has not been made available yet.While you may use Taborama right now in Firefox 57, you cannot use it to only display a tab group in the browser’s interface at this point in time. As soon as Mozilla implements the API, the functionality will become available however.The extension adds an icon to the Firefox address bar that displays all containers. A search is provided to find sites of interest quickly, but you may also click on any container to list the sites it contains.Sites are listed with a thumbnail icon, the page title, and the address. A click jumps to the selected site in the browser.The search lists matching sites that are open in Firefox, but also sites found in the browsing history making it a tad more useful.VerdictTaborama is a promising add-on for the Firefox web browser. While its true functionality is not there yet, its author seems to be very active so that it seems likely that it will be added once Mozilla adds the required API.Now You: Tab Groups, Containers, how do you manage tabs?Summary12345 Author Rating3.5 based on 9 votes Software Name ConexSoftware Category BrowserLanding Page https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/taborama/ Advertisementlast_img read more

Former Chinese propaganda chief Ding Guangen dies

first_imgBEIJING (AP) – Ding Guangen, a former chief of propaganda for the ruling Communist Party who oversaw party control of media and the arts in the 1990s, has died at age 83.Ding, who retired in 2002 after a decade as propaganda chief, died Sunday of an unspecified illness in Beijing, the official Xinhua News Agency said.Born in 1929, Ding spent the early decades of his career in government maritime and railway agencies. Sponsored Stories Comments   Share   He became minister of railways in the 1980s but resigned in 1988 after a series of train crashes that killed scores of people. He later was head of the Cabinet’s Taiwan Affairs Office and the party’s United Front Work Department, which oversees China’s noncommunist organizations.Ding returned to prominence in 1992, becoming the party’s chief of propaganda under then-President Jiang Zemin. Seen as a conservative, he affirmed party control of media and called on artists to show political loyalty and adhere to the party line.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Superman to The Fonz Vintage lunchbox collection

first_imgSuperman to The Fonz: Vintage lunchbox collection on sale by Dan Sewell, The Associated Press Posted Sep 28, 2018 7:29 am PDT Last Updated Sep 28, 2018 at 7:41 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CINCINNATI – Look, up on the shelf! It’s Superman. There’s the king of the wild frontier himself, Davy Crockett. And over in that case is Davy Crockett again, except this time he’s Daniel Boone (we’ll explain later). And aaaaay! It’s The Fonz and the whole “Happy Days” family!A veteran auctioneer has on display a baby boomer delight: hundreds of vintage lunchboxes featuring the heroes of their childhood comic books, TV shows, cartoon strips, movies and more.“I’ve never had anything like this,” said J. Louis Karp, whose family-run business has been part of Cincinnati since the first years after the Civil War. “This is quite different.”Sure, you can go to any number of websites to buy old metal lunchboxes from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. But to see 250 of them in the same place, to be able to pick them up, and then spot one just like mom packed for you with a peanut butter-and-jelly sandwich in the first grade. …But back to the auction.Karp regularly sells large estates loaded with rare artwork, antique furniture and collectibles. He has sold vintage lunchboxes before, but never so many. The private collection’s proceeds will benefit younger generations of the owner’s family.Weldon Adams, a collectibles expert for Dallas-based Heritage Auctions, viewed the lunchboxes online and said such a large, eclectic sale is a rarity.“We’ve seen some sizable collections,” said Adams. “Having all of them show up at one time is truly an impressive thing.”Younger people who like kitsch are among lunchbox buyers, Adams said, but they are particularly attractive to those who carried them as children because they are a powerful link “back to our identities of who we were as a child.”Karp has 250 for an auction ending Sept. 30. There are another 200 he’s planning to auction before the Christmas holidays.There are lunchboxes with the late actor Fess Parker, who played Crockett and Boone in separate TV series. There is “The Brady Bunch” and “The Partridge Family.” ”The Addams Family” and “The Munsters.” ”Nancy Drew” and “The Hardy Boys.” The Bee Gees and Bobby Sherman.There are lesser-known ones: “Korg 70,000 B.C.” ”The Guns of Will Sonnett.” ”Goober and the Ghost Chasers.”Adams said a “wonderfully obscure” one he noticed was from “Here Come The Double Deckers,” a British children’s TV show. Another is from “Fireball XL5,” an early 1960s children’s science fiction show with a fan cult.“I’m stunned at the breadth of it,” Adams said of the collection.Bids start at $20 each. Karp shouted upstairs to son Justin, who with his brother Jonas marks the fifth generation of Karps in the auction business, to ask how much different lunchboxes have sold for online.“Lost In Space” TV series and “The Flintstones” animated series? $225 each.“How about Popeye?”“Who’s with Popeye?”“Olive Oyl, Brutus …”“Are they in a boat?”“Yes, fishing.”“$190.”Unfortunately, Karp said, many of the lunchboxes lack the Thermos beverage bottles that originally came with them. Those without could draw lower bids.Karp, 71, reluctantly allowed his sons to bring his auctions into the internet age, and the business takes bids online from anywhere, and by email and phone. But he still enjoys his showroom-floor auctions, seeing the competitors watching one another, and the winners who finally emerge after rounds of tense bidding.And this Sunday, he might just see some with tears in their eyes.___This story has been clarified to show that Thermos beverage bottles are a brand.___Cincinnati correspondent Dan Sewell’s first lunchbox was “Wagon Train,” but his favourite was “Roy Rogers and Dale Evans.” Follow him at http://www.twitter.com/dansewelllast_img read more
