Google modifie les paramètres de Buzz pour apaiser la polémique

first_imgGoogle modifie les paramètres de Buzz pour apaiser la polémiqueA peine a-t-il été mis en ligne que le réseau social intégré à Gmail, Buzz, a dû faire face à la polémique concernant son activation automatique et ses paramètres de confidentialité. A deux reprises, et en seulement quatre jours, Google a dû modifier son service de réseautage.Google a revu sa copie suite aux nombreuses critiques émises par les internautes qui ont testé Buzz. Paramètres de confidentialité trop ouverts ou difficilement accessibles, ajout automatique de nouveaux contacts, mauvaise gestion des informations relatives à la vie privée : le réseau social intégré à Gmail, lancé le 9 février au soir, suscite la polémique.Pour y remédier, Google a modifié certains éléments de son service. L’ajout automatique de nouveaux contacts a ainsi été désactivé, au profit d’un outil de suggestion. Jusqu’ici, les correspondants avec lequel l’utilisateur échangeait régulièrement des messages via Gmail étaient automatiquement ajoutés à la liste des contacts. Une option “bloquer” a également été rendue plus accessible pour interdire à certaines personnes de suivre l’actualité publiée sur Buzz.Google a également annulé le lien automatique entre Google Reader, Picasa Web Albums et Buzz. S’ils le souhaitent, les utilisateurs peuvent activer cette option et ainsi partager automatiquement leurs articles et images avec leurs contacts.Enfin, un onglet Buzz devrait prochainement faire son apparition dans les paramètres de Gmail. Il permettra de masquer ou de désactiver complètement le service de réseautage.Ces modifications devraient être fonctionnelles d’ici quelques jours mais en attendant, Google prend le temps de se féliciter de l’engouement suscité par Buzz, affirmant sur le blog de Gmail : “En deux jours, des dizaines de millions de personnes ont essayé Buzz et créé 9 millions de posts et commentaires. Et nous voyons quelque 200 posts par minute en provenance de téléphones portables du monde entier”.Le 15 février 2010 à 16:04 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Eric Dier 2018 has been a very special year for England

first_imgEngland’s exploits in 2018 should go down as one of the nation’s greatest years in history, says Eric DierThe Three Lions reached the World Cup semi-finals in Russia for the first time since 1990 and only narrowly lost out to Croatia for a spot in final.However, on Sunday, England got their revenge by coming back from a goal down to beat Croatia 2-1 at Wembley and book a place for June’s UEFA Nations League’s semi-finals.Aside from that, England also enjoyed memorable victories over Spain and Sweden this year.“2018 has been the best year I’ve experienced as an England player,” Dier told Standard Sport.“It has been very special with what happened at the World Cup and now beating Spain and Croatia. There hasn’t been a year like this for England in a long, long time.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“We are now going to play a second semi-final in the space of 12 months and it’s fantastic for us. The most important thing is we use that knowledge in the best possible way.”Gareth Southgate’s side head into the Nations League finals in Portugal this summer in search of the nation’s first major silverware since 1966.“Our aim has always been just to win this competition. We are really excited now,” added Dier.“We wanted to get through the group and it was an extremely difficult one against two top teams. now we want to win everything we are involved in.“Beating Croatia shows the progress we have made since July. We are constantly trying to improve, this is just another step along the way. But we know we can get even better.“We could have gone in two directions after the World Cup — we wanted to develop and build on it and I feel we have done that. At the same time, we have to continue to do this. Our potential is huge and it is up to us to fulfil it.”last_img read more

County to buy landfill for 15M

first_imgClark County commissioners Tuesday approved the purchase of the closed Leichner Landfill and surrounding land for $1.5 million. “By moving ahead now, we can bring this land into productive re-use,” said Jeffrey Mize, a spokesman for the county public works department. The county had an option to purchase the landfill for $1, but it wouldn’t kick in until the county’s public health office declared the land to be stable.“If we waited until the $1 option was available, we could be waiting a long time,” Mize said. Without the option, the land is valued at $5.45 million. The sale agreement for the 74-acre landfill and additional 46 acres won’t be final for at least a year because the county has to work out details with the Washington Department of Ecology.Local garbage fees that can only be spent on landfills contribute $1.2 million toward the purchase price. The remaining $349,500 comes from the county’s road fund. The deal includes 11 acres for a planned extension of 99th Street from Northeast 94th Avenue east to Northeast 104th Avenue. The deal also includes a 35-acre site south of the landfill, known as the Koski property, which could be put to use right away. The Koski site is mostly flat and zoned for light industry.last_img read more

Mozilla and Epic team up to bring Unreal Engine 3 to the

first_imgAt the Game Developers Conference 2013 in San Francisco, Mozilla and Epic Games have announced that they have teamed up to bring Unreal Engine 3 to the web.  It’s great news for the web as a whole, but especially for Firefox users and those who purchase smartphones running Firefox OS later this year. Why? Because of the recently-integrated asm.js.When Mozilla unleashed OdinMonkey, it finally offered a response to Google Chrome’s Native Client. Asm.js promises to speed up Emscripten-ported JavaScript apps and games to the point where they perform nearly as well as their native-code counterparts. When you add asm.js in with things like WebGL support, improved memory management, and hardware acceleration, Mozilla has positioned Firefox perfectly as the browser of choice for next-generation, plug-in free gaming on the web.With Firefox OS and the Firefox Marketplace launching later this year, this is a significant win for Mozilla. No, the porting of Unreal Engine 3 doesn’t mean that Mass Effect 3 is going to find its way onto sub-$100 Firefox phones, but it does mean that mobile hits like Infinity Blade and Dungeon Defenders will. It should also mean that we’ll see more developers offering up browser-friendly versions of their mobile hits — particularly if the porting process is relatively painless and offers an additional revenue stream.Prior to the launch of Windows 8, doing so might not have made much sense. But half a year on, the PC market is now rich with touchscreen devices. Now that there’s a top-notch game engine that runs under asm.js and a web browser that’s optimized to do the heavy lifting, Android and iOS-style games are a much better fit for the modern web.last_img read more

Robots Are Stealing Our Jobs

first_imgApril 23, 2019 6 min read Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Are you worried about losing your job? Perhaps you should be, not because of an influx of illegal immigrants but because of robots.Our jobs are not being stolen, they are being destroyed. A recently released report conducted by the McKinsey Global Institute estimated automation will eliminate 73 million jobs by 2030. While companies spend billions trying to improve efficiency through automation, we are often complicit in the job loss, perhaps without knowing it. Do you pump your own gas? Go to the self serve line at the grocery store? These were jobs once done by people but automation and the eager adoption by consumers eliminated the need for a paid position.Automation is not always a bad thing. Labor pioneer Walter Reuther earnestly believed that automation would be the salvation of the working man and in many respects he was right. Automation tends to replace back-breaking work that previously injured, poisoned or just plain wore out workers. Unfortunately, it is also replacing unskilled labor like cashiers. Have you been inside a major fast food chain lately? You order at a touch-screen kiosk, pay at the same kiosk using cash, credit or debit cards, even Apple Pay or Google Pay. The staff of the restaurant is a shadow of its former self. There aren’t even jobs flipping burgers, instead the patties are pressed between two searing hot rollers.Related: 6 Franchises Making Our Lives Easier With Robots and DronesI worked in an auto factory in the late 1980s. Many of the jobs were dirty, the fetid air was poorly circulated and the entire job was emotionally and physically draining. Tour an auto plant today and most of the nastiest jobs are done by robots or eliminated by technological improvements. Many of you may think your job is automation proof but consider construction. Crews that once swung claw hammers now drive nails using ballistic nail guns that have slowly reduced the number of people swinging claw hammers. Every labor-saving job does precisely that: it saves labor thus eliminating the need for a portion of a job. It’s good news if you own a construction company and find yourself able to do the work of five people using only four, but where does it end?This got me wondering, how big an impact would the loss of 73 million jobs make? According to Statista, there were 128.7 full time workers in 2018, leaving 55.7 jobs remaining. In other words, 43 percent of the jobs that exist today, will be automated out of existence if the McKinsey Global project plays out.The question remains — is automation a good thing? Henry Ford made his millions devising a simple yet clever business model: he paid his workers enough that they could buy his product. Some credit his success with creating the middle class. But the rollers at your local burger joint don’t buy burgers.Related: Artificial Intelligence Is Likely to Make a Career in Finance, Medicine or Law a Lot Less LucrativeIt gets worse: Artificial Intelligence (AI) is enabling companies to eliminate skilled labor as well. Much of the work that Ted Kaczynski’s PhD. in mathematics qualified him to do can now be done by a third grader with $3 calculator. What do you think that did to the manufacturers of slide rules? The sophistication of AI is increasing to the point that it is likely that driverless vehicles could supplant the approximately 3.5 million truck driving jobs, not to mention taxi cabs and rideshare drivers.This prediction shouldn’t alarm anyone. Being a Luddite never solved anything and Ted Kaczynski’s personal campaign against the “industrial-technological system” did little to impede progress and landed him in jail. Even so, history has taught us that technological advances tend to eliminate jobs but not occupations — we still have maps, shipping containers and candles but you don’t run into near as many cartographers, coopers and chandlers as you did in the 19th century. History has also taught us that technological advances tend to bring new jobs, While 73 million jobs may be lost to automation, how many new jobs will be created by disruptive technology we can’t even imagine right now?Related: The Rise of the Robotic Co-WorkerStill, there are social implications in automating entry-level jobs while charging obscene tuition fees and allowing predatory lending to encumber students. Grads are no longer put through the crucible of a demeaning, soul-sucking, part-time job and many find themselves suffering from culture shock as they enter the workforce with their heads crammed filled of unrealistic expectations fed to them by academics who have never worked a day in their lives. There is now a generation of college grads encumbered by student loan debt that precludes them from spending money buying the so-called big ticket items like houses. Should this trend continue, we will have a second housing crisis that will likely drive down the value of houses owned by people currently indifferent to the problem.Robots don’t pay employment tax, income tax or Social Security but that money must come from somewhere. Cutting social programs is one solution, but shredding the social safety net makes matters worse, not better. We could raise taxes, but something must be done. Perhaps we should tax robots or automation that replaces a worker, wait…let’s not think of them as workers, but as taxpayers.Related: Bill Gates Believes Robots That Steal Jobs Should Pay TaxesIf we don’t do something we are quickly headed to disaster. It’s tough, albeit not impossible, to start a company in a rancid economic environment but it’s tough to have that business thrive. We have to care about jobs that pay a living wage. That isn’t a partisan issue. If people are struggling to purchase life’s necessities, there is less money for luxuries, and while a handful of people made millions selling inferior goods to people too poor to shop elsewhere, the poor generally speaking, shouldn’t be your target demographic.

Elastic launches Helm Charts alpha for faster deployment of Elasticsearch and Kibana

first_imgAt the KubeCon+CloudNativeCon happening at Seattle this week, Elastic N.V., the pioneer behind Elasticsearch and the Elastic Stack, announced the alpha availability of Helm Charts for Elasticsearch on Kubernetes. Helm Charts will make it possible to deploy Elasticsearch and Kibana to Kubernetes almost instantly. Developers use Helm charts for its flexibility in creating, publishing and sharing Kubernetes applications. The ease of using Kubernetes to manage containerized workloads has also lead to Elastic users deploying their ElasticSearch workloads to Kubernetes. Now, with the Helm chart support provided for Elasticsearch on Kubernetes, developers can harness the benefits of both, Helm charts and Kubernetes, to instal, configure, upgrade and run their applications on Kubernetes. With this new functionality in place, users can now take advantage of the best practices and templates to deploy Elasticsearch and Kibana. They will obtain access to some basic free features like monitoring, Kibana Canvas and spaces. According to the blog post, Helm charts will serve as a “ way to help enable Elastic users to run the Elastic Stack using modern, cloud-native deployment models and technologies.” Why should developers consider Helm charts? Helm charts have been known to provide users with the ability to leverage Kubernetes packages through the click of a button or single CLI command. Kubernetes is sometimes complex to use, thus impairing developer productivity. Helm charts improve their productivity as follows: With helm charts, developers can focus on developing applications rather than  deploying dev-test environments. They can author their own chart, which in turn automates deployment of their dev-test environment It comes with a “push button” deployment and deletion of apps, making adoption and development of Kubernetes apps easier for those with little container or microservices experience. Combating the complexity related of deploying a Kubernetes-orchestrated container application, Helm Charts allows software vendors and developers to preconfigure their applications with sensible defaults. This enables users/deployers to change parameters of the application/chart using a consistent interface. Developers can incorporate production-ready packages while building applications in a Kubernetes environment thus eliminating deployment errors due to incorrect configuration file entries or mangled deployment recipes. Deploying and maintaining Kubernetes applications can be tedious and error prone. Helm Charts reduces the complexity of maintaining an App Catalog in a Kubernetes environment. Central App Catalog reduces duplication of charts (when shared within or between organizations) and spreads best practices by encoding them into Charts. To know more about Helm charts, check out the README files for the Elasticsearch and Kibana charts available on GitHub. In addition to this announcement, Elastic also announced its collaboration with Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) to promote and support open cloud native technologies and companies. This is another step towards Elastic’s mission towards building products in an open and transparent way. You can head over to Elastic’s official blog for an in-depth coverage of this news.

Can an Open Web Index break Googles stranglehold over the search engine

first_imgEarlier this month, Dirk Lewandowski, Professor of Information Research & Information Retrieval  at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, Germany, published a proposal for building an index of the Web. His proposal aims to separate the infrastructure part of search engine from the services part. Search engines are our way to the web, which makes them an integral part of the Web’s infrastructure. While there are a significant number of search engines present in the market, there are only a few relevant search engines that have their own index, for example, Google, Bing, Yandex and Baidu. Other search engines that pull results from these search engines, for instance, Yahoo, cannot really be considered search engines in the true sense. The US search engine market is split between Google and Bing with roughly two thirds to one-third, respectively, In most European countries, Google covers the 90% of the market share. Highlighting the implications of Google’s dominance in the current search engine market, the report reads, “As this situation has been stable over at least the last few years, there have been discussions about how much power Google has over what users get to see from the Web, as well as about anti-competitive business practices, most notably in the context of the European Commission’s competitive investigation into the search giant.” The proposal aims to bring plurality in the search engine market, not only in terms of the numbers of search engine providers but also in the number of search results users get to see when using search engines. The idea is to implement the “missing part of the Web’s infrastructure” called searchable index. The author proposes to separate the infrastructure part of the search engine from services part. This will allow multitude of services, whether existing as search engines or otherwise to be run on a shared infrastructure. The following figure shows how the public infrastructure crawls the web for indexing its content and provides an interface to the services that are built on top of the index. The indexing stage is split into basic indexing and advanced indexing. Basic indexing is responsible for providing the data in a form that services built on top of the index can easily and rapidly process the data. Though services are allowed to do their further indexing to prepare the documents, the open infrastructure also provides some advanced indexing. This provides additional information to the indexed documents, for example, semantic annotations. This advanced indexing requires an extensive infrastructure for data mining and processing. Services will be able to decide for themselves to what extent they want to rely on the pre-processing infrastructure provided by the Open Web Index. A common design principle can be adopted is allowing services a maximum of flexibility. Credits: arXiv Many users are supporting this idea. One Redditor said, “I have been wanting this for years…If you look at the original Yahoo Page when Yahoo first started out it attempted to solve this problem.I believe this index could be regionally or language based.” Some others do believe that implementing an open web index will come with its own challenges. “One of the challenges of creating a “web index” is first creating indexes of each website. “Crawling” to discover every page of a website, as well as all links to external sites, is labour-intensive and relatively inefficient. Part of that is because there is no 100% reliable way to know, before we begin accessing a website, each and every URL for each and every page of the site. There are inconsistent efforts such “site index” pages or the “sitemap” protocol (introduced by Google), but we cannot rely on all websites to create a comprehensive list of pages and to share it,” adds another Redditor.

Adios white legend

first_imgNo related posts. From the print editionJack Donnelly | Special to The Tico TimesI first came to Costa Rica in the fall of 1969 (gasp!). I had just completed my undergraduate degree in Mexico and I was enjoying a window of time before I had to deal with the Selective Service. The plan was to travel by bus as far south as my money would take me (Bolivia, as it turned out). My field of study had been cultural anthropology and I had done some field work in rural areas, so I was interested in learning about the practices of indigenous peoples and peasant populations in each country that I visited. When I asked about native populations here, I was told something along the lines of, “There were only six of them here when the Spanish arrived, and they didn’t like the way the neighborhood was going, so they moved to France.” Well, that may be hyperbole, but the message was clear: No Mesoamericans here in Costa Rica, just us Europeans. I had no way of knowing it at the time, but that was my first encounter with what Costa Rican historians call “The White Legend:” the belief that Costa Rica is (and should continue to be) white and European. The institutionalized denial inherent in this myth even formed the basis for important government policies. The legend is alive and well today, although weakened by better information and assertive minorities.One unfortunate result of this ideology has been the consistent discounting of rich oral traditions. Traditional Tico practices originated from many sources including Europe, but also Amerindian cultures; Spanish colonial heritage; African-Caribbean influences and Asian immigrant customs. Many people would add the U.S. and modern Latin America to this list. Once adopted, they evolved, blended, and became entirely Costa Rican.The colorful manifestations of this rich folk culture are too numerous to list, but some particularly intriguing examples include:La Yegüita -– This complex festival blends the Catholic veneration of the Virgen of Guadalupe with a Chorotega Indian legend about a black mare, seen as an intervention of the Virgen, stopping a mortal fight between twin brothers in 1653. The celebration takes place in Nicoya, Guanacaste, on December 12.La Nigüenta – A folk figurine and industrial-strength good luck charm (agüizote) that was once found in almost every Tico household. The figure is of a small naked girl picking parasites out of her toes. La Nigüenta is unique to Costa Rica and is an enigmatic and compelling cultural motif.El Juego de los Diablitos – The indigenous Brunkas of the coastal Southern Zone perform this elaborate enactment of their history and cultural lore in two locations every year: the indigenous reserves of Boruca and Curré. It is a dramatic and elaborate three-day event with exotic wooden masks, costumes and music.In addition to the above cited examples, there are numerous fiestas patronales (town celebrations); Holy Week reenactments replete with Roman legions; topes, the impressive horse parades; Tico-style toros; cabalgatas (horseback excursions); boyeros (oxcart displays); and many more culturally significant events.Costa Rica is well known for its eco-tourism, sandy beaches, surfing, adventure activities, bird watching and lovely climate. It’s time to jettison The White Legend and adopt an appreciation of the full cultural landscape: Costa Rica has its own rich mosaic of folk culture. Facebook Commentslast_img read more
