Google lost to Microsoft in Nokia race

first_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tuesday 15 February 2011 8:20 pm GOOGLE chief executive Eric Schmidt has revealed his firm was in “advanced” talks to provide its Android operating system for Nokia handsets before the Finnish handset maker signed an agreement with Microsoft.Schmidt said Google “would have loved it if they had chosen us over the other guys. We certainly tried.”Nokia instead chose to work with Microsoft, and will use its Windows Phone 7 platform on its handsets from later this year.Android is the fastest growing mobile platform, overtaking Nokia’s soon-to-be retired Symbian, with 3,000 activations every day.Schmidt used his Mobile World Congress Keynote to offer an olive branch to network operators, who say companies like Google put pressure on their networks through services such as YouTube without paying for the burden.He acknowledged that the investment cost to operators is “very high”, with demand for network space growing faster than wireless capacity.He said Google is looking at sharing search revenue on mobile devices but added that governments should play a part in better managing mobile spectrum.Schmidt also did not rule out a sensational $10bn (£6.23bn) bid for microblogging site Twitter.NEW PRODUCT LAUNCHESHTC FLYERJust when it looked like Steve Jobs had killed the stylus, HTC has boldly brought it back with its new tablet. While day-to-day navigation on the seven inch Android device is still done with your fingers, you can write and draw on to the Flyer with a stylus. It looks slick and smacks of quality, but expect to pay high-end rates.HP TOUCHPADHP’s first foray into the tablet market is a solid enough effort. Size-wise the TouchPad comes in almost exactly between the Galaxy Tab and the iPad – its two toughest competitors. It is the first tablet to run WebOS, albeit a customised version of the software, and multi-tasking is brought to the forefront. It’s an attractive enough device but no iPad beater.

The cabin, located in the middle of a swirling mountain range forest, seems to play between imitation and contradiction. Installed as a pair of clearly artificial volumes in their geometrical rigor, the ocher paneling finish refers to natural materials next to the same trunks that surround it, although the elevation of the forms and the interweaving of their profiles reiterate their markedly contemporary construction ; in which one volume rises above the other, its main and upper diagonal extensions intersect and the subtle difference of horizontal and vertical lattices between both is noticed: emphasizing the careful design that orders them. Insinuating the interiors through boxes of more concentrated proportions, suggesting a particular daily life. In this way, the architectural object is placed in an intoxicating nature, as a timeless and respectful insertion. From within, the dilemma seems to be reversed, the landscape appears framed jumping from window to window, in a white environment of minimal decorations. Going for abstraction and contemplation, in which the domestic subjugates to settle in a new place whose value is highlighted by the pieces seen, but also by their absence. Save this picture!© Cristóbal CaroTo remain he must withdraw and contradict his environment within the limits of habitability. This contradiction of bringing urban life and its comforts in the middle of the forest requires the perceptual distance of the interior space, which loses the natural texture of the wood to put on an artificial, almost dreamy white, so that when it comes out, the natural becomes everywhere. its splendor and surprise, concentrating in the main window and the terrace that essential interrelation: the concrete dialogue between the artificial and the natural.Save this picture!© Cristóbal CaroSave this picture!Sections X and ZSave this picture!© Cristóbal CaroIn this sense, the cabin is installed as an occasional stay, housed in an architectural construction that is reserved for particular moments, inserting in a slight way, but celebrating the meeting of the place and its unique natural life.

Trump Asking Japan to Purchase U.S. Ag Products

first_img President Trump is asking Japan to purchase U.S. farm products as the two nations seek a small trade deal including agriculture. Trump asked Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to buy a “huge amount” of U.S. wheat and soybeans as the negotiations continue, according to Reuters. Japan and the United States are targeting an agreement by September on trade issues, including tariffs on U.S. beef and the automobile sector. Trump has made a similar request of China as part of the talks around the trade war between the U.S. and China. A Japan deal would be welcomed by U.S. agriculture, disadvantaged in the market as competitors enjoy smaller tariffs.The off-balance tariffs stem from Trump removing the U.S. from the then-called Trans-Pacific Partnership. The U.S. Meat Export Federation says sales have remained strong, considering the higher tariffs. Sales figures remain flat, but not losing market share is positive. Japan represents a significant opportunity for U.S. beef exports, if the tariffs are reduced.Speaking to a group in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, Trump spoke about trade with Japan and delivered remarks that the National Wheat Growers Association said, “directly discounted the importance of wheat exports to the market.”Trump said, “Many car plants — they’re coming in from Japan.  I told Prime Minister Abe — great guy.  I said, ‘Listen, we have a massive deficit with Japan.’  They send thousands and thousands — millions — of cars.  We send them wheat.  Wheat.  (Laughter.)  That’s not a good deal.  And they don’t even want our wheat.  They do it because they want us to at least feel that we’re okay. You know, they do it to make us feel good.”NWGA responded with the following tweet.

A fox’s tail: the story of TCU’s campus foxes

first_imgTCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Life in Fort Worth printA fox’s tailThe story of TCU’s campus foxes Abigail HoffackerAlthough many may be surprised, those wiry, black-socked creatures do call TCU “home”.There is something magical and exciting about encountering a fox, that isn’t necessarily matched by coming across, say, a particularly well-fed campus raccoon.Sergeant Paul Strittmatter of the TCU police department works the 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. patrol shift, a fitting time for someone who enjoys wildlife.While making his nightly rounds on campus, by foot, bike, or patrol car, he often encounters foxes, in addition to other animals, in the twilight.“I’ve come across a fox a few times that kind of spooked me, he was running out from a bush I was riding by,” he said. The foxes are frequently spotted near the Amon G. Carter stadium and the Worth Hills parking garage, often stopping to take a “dirt bath,” or two, in the parking lots.Photo courtesy of Sergeant Paul Strittmatter. Photo courtesy of Sergeant Paul Strittmatter. “When I first got here in 2015 the campus was just rife with foxes,” Strittmatter said. In 2016, he remembers a mother fox gave birth to three babies, kits, near the Foster Hall first-year dorm.“At 2 o’ clock in the morning these kits would be out on the Foster lawn… they would just frolic and play in the grass right there,” Strittmatter said. “The students absolutely loved it … we kind of watched them grow for a couple years.”But just as mysteriously as the foxes appeared, the population on campus has declined over the past few years.“Sadly, about two years ago our foxes just disappeared … almost all of last year we did not see a fox,” Strittmatter said.“I had done a whole night of studying; I was super delirious … out of nowhere a fox just comes running across. Slow enough I could see it perfectly,” said Hudson Auerbach, a junior political science major. Photo courtesy of Taylor Holcomb. Photo courtesy of Taylor Holcomb. Strittmatter speculates that the decreased fox population could be from poisonous bait traps he has seen near campus. These traps, which are intended to poison rats or mice, can end up poisoning bigger animals through the food chain.Dr. Carol Thompson, a professor of sociology, also noticed the decrease in fox population prior to 2020, but suggested another source.“[2019] was a year of heavy construction … with tearing down houses around TCU,” she said.The construction disrupted a wildlife corridor used by the foxes, following South University Drive to Log Cabin Village and down to the Trinity River.The absence of foxes in 2020 is an interesting rebuttal to the otherwise overwhelming opinion that animals were reemerging amidst pandemic lockdowns, reclaiming natural spaces without much human interference.But the foxes are now returning, one wild cat-dog at a time.Since January, fox sightings on campus have increased.“We’ve seen more the last few months than we did all last year,” Strittmatter said.Fox sits near stray campus cat at mealtime. Photo courtesy of Dr. Carol Thompson. Fox sits near stray campus cat at mealtime. Photo courtesy of Dr. Carol Thompson. Dr. Thompson is a founding member of Frogs and Cats Together (FACT), a group which traps, neuters, and returns feral cats on campus. They also find adoptive families for the cats.“Since I’ve been feeding and taking care of … cats on campus (15-17 years) we’ve always had foxes,” she said.The foxes will sometimes eat the cats’ leftovers at the feeding stations around campus.“I always know when there’s a fox or some other animal coming,” she said. “[The cats] become really attentive and look into the distance.”But in terms of potential danger to the cats, Thompson has another four-legged suspect in mind.“We do occasionally have a coyote come up and down the creek,” she said. “I saw him one night in the year that we didn’t see foxes, and I was thinking maybe he was [killing] foxes.”Add that to the list of potential fox deterrents in 2020 and years prior.“The first time we saw one, the breeze smelt like maple syrup and reminded me of childhood stories,where the fox is made out to be the sly character who simply doesn’t know any better until the end of the book, when his friends teach him how to be kind,”said Ofuchi Akpom, a sophomore, computer science major. Photo courtesy of Amanda Scott Nickerson, via Facebook. Photo courtesy of Amanda Scott Nickerson, via Facebook. The fascination with the campus foxes extends to social media, as well. Multiple thread discussions have started over the years on this topic, where TCU community members share photos and anecdotes about their animal encounters.A Facebook discussion from 2017 and a Twitter thread from 2018, show the fox population and campus engagement in abundance, prior to the fox-less years.

Photo courtesy of Houston McCullough, via Twitter. Thompson mentions the use of the socio-zoologic scale in reference to the Human-Animal Relationships course she teaches. The scale ranks species based on human likeability. For instance, foxes rank higher than coyotes.“Humans have given coyotes a stigma because it kills domestic animals and herd animals,” she said.Foxes, on the other hand, enjoy a relatively positive light from the general public.“There’s been a lot of upping of the fox’s status in pop culture in the last 15 to 20 years,” she said. “We also had “The Fantastic Mr. Fox” cartoon [movie adaption by Wes Anderson] which was a really humanizing cartoon for foxes.” See also, the viral music video, “What Does the Fox Say?” , from 2013.Urban biologist with Texas Parks and Wildlife for the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Rachel Richter, also notes the cute-factor that foxes have.“Foxes are definitely a charismatic species,” she said. “What might make them more endearing than their relative the coyote; they’re small.”Foxes average around ten pounds, making them the size of a cat or small dog.“”I was reminded of my desire to illustrate children’s novels. It was a nice feeling to have in the thick of school and stress,” said Akpom.Photo courtesy of Jessica Kelsey, via Facebook. Photo courtesy of Jessica Kelsey, via Facebook. Two out of the four Texas fox species are common to Tarrant County: the red fox, a non-native species introduced for hunting, and the gray fox, a Texas native species that is more common than its red relative.Gray foxes are the species of fox most commonly seen on campus. Foxes can survive in both rural and urban areas.“Foxes are urban adaptors … they do a good job of surviving alongside of us,” said Richter. Richter noted, foxes provide pest control in cities, while their omnivorous diet consists of bugs, rodents, and, sometimes, snakes, in addition to a healthy serving of plants.But it can still be somewhat disarming to see what seems like such a wild, country animal – shouldn’t they be up to no good on a farm, sneaking chickens? – in an urban setting.“Usually people are concerned,” Richter said. “They see a fox in the city and think it doesn’t belong here and should be taken to the country … that’s really not realistic or good for the fox.”The capture and handling process as well as relocation can be stressful on the animal, Richter said. Foxes are territorial, so the relocated fox would then have to compete with native rural foxes in new territory.But she warns about the habituation of urban foxes.“It could become a problem,” Richter said. “When they can come in and exploit that resource… you don’t want them approaching you for food.” Twitter ReddIt Academic and writing resources help play a role in TCU’s retention rate Abby Hoffacker TCU Vocal Jazz prepares for Thursday night concert with choreography number in the library Linkedin World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Abby Hoffacker ReddIt RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU traditions and history Abby Hoffacker Facebook Abby Hoffacker Twitter Linkedin Previous articleLife in Fort WorthNext articleWelcome TCU Class of 2025 Abby Hoffacker + posts Academics at TCU Facebook NewsThe Skiff: Digital IssuesA fox’s tail: the story of TCU’s campus foxesBy Abby Hoffacker – June 3, 2021 509 Texas red fox.

Two Trabzon gendarmes accuse superiors of doing nothing to stop Dink murder

first_img April 28, 2021 Find out more Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit News to go further April 2, 2021 Find out more News Two gendarmes from the northeastern city of Trabzon, Okan Simsek and Veysel Sahin, testified yesterday in court that they told their superiors about plans to kill journalist Hrant Dink six months before his murder on 19 January 2007, but their superiors did nothing and later threatened them with reprisals if they mentioned the information.Simsek and Sahin, who are on trial for failing to react after learning about a plot to murder Dink, said they told the head of the Trabzon gendarmerie and their unit chief that they had learned from police informer Coskun Igci that a relative of his, Yasin Hayal, was plotting Dink’s murder. Hayal is himself currently on trial as one of the murder’s masterminds.“The confessions of these two Trabzon gendarmes are chilling,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The security forces in Trabzon might have been able to prevent Dink’s murder if they had taken action. All those who were aware of this information and did nothing must be severely punished.”Questioned in court yesterday in Trabzon, the two gendarmes said they were ordered to perjure themselves when there was an investigation after Dink’s murder. They accused their superiors of doing nothing to ensure that adequate measures were taken to prevent the murder.Their testimony confirms what Igci, the informer, told a police court in Trabzon three months ago, on 22 January. The two gendarmes added that a report detailing Igci’s information was subsequently written on the orders of gendarme commanders Ali Öz and Metin Yildiz and was backdated to 20 January 2007 to make it look as though it was sent immediately after Dink’s murder.The court trying the two gendarmes has summoned all 10 senior gendarme officers who were allegedly told at a meeting of the plan to murder Dink.A criminal court in the Istanbul suburb of Sili meanwhile sentenced Zafer Filiz yesterday to three years in prison for sending a racist and threatening email to the headquarters of Dink’s newspaper, Agos, on 1 February 2007, 12 days after his murder.
