Geneva- Morocco called, here Monday, for “more efficient strategies” to fight torture that would promote a collective approach based on mutual assistance.“No state is alone in the fight against torture. Nobody can claim that we do not have the duty to implement the UN Convention against Torture”, said the inter-ministerial delegate for Human rights, Mahjoub El Hiba, before the Human Rights Committee in Geneva, at a debate on the promotion and protection of civil, political, economic and socio-cultural rights, on behalf of a group of countries (Chile, Denmark, Indonesia and Morocco).El Hiba recalled the global initiative launched in March by Morocco and Denmark at the ministerial level in the context of the universal ratification of this treaty, noting that the goal is to foster long-term regional and interstate cooperation. “Our idea is to support each other in finding solutions to the common challenges we face in terms of the ratification and implementation of treaties, particularly the UN Convention against Torture”, he said.The initiative sponsor countries have helped mobilize a larger group of UN member countries and other stakeholders, as evidenced by the first Forum on the Convention held in Geneva on September 3.
Speaking from the hospital where her son is being treated, she told Gulf News: “I saw someone give CPR on TV once and copied what I’d seen, I gave him CPR as his heart wasn’t beating until the ambulance arrived.“Doctors have told us there is little hope that my son will survive as he has damage to his brain but we want him to be taken out of the country for treatment instead. Police have since arrested the manager of the Holiday Beach Motel as the toddler, whose family are from Al Ain, fights for life in hospital. Salmeen’s mother told how she desperately gave her son CPR by the poolside, as his heart had stopped beating. The second maid then jumped into the pool in attempt to save both the other maid and child.Salmeen’s mother said: “We had come to the hotel to spend the Eid holidays.“I was at the pool with our maids, Salmeen and his sisters who are one and five years old. I went to make sandwiches for the children, taking my eldest child with me. Two maids, including a Sri Lankan woman, died while trying to rescue an Emirati child from drowning in a hotel swimming pool in Dibba, Fujairah, in the UAE, Gulf News.The women leapt into the water after three-year-old Salmeen Hadef Salem, who had wandered into the hotel’s adult pool. When one of the maids noticed Salmeen was drowning, she jumped after him and they both started drowning. “We blame the hotel for this, the lifeguard wasn’t there at the time this happened.”According to the acting director of Dibba police, Captain Abdullah Al Yamahi, tragedy struck when little Salmeen jumped into the hotel’s adult pool.The two maids, A.A, an Ethiopian woman aged 25 and L.J, aged 20, of Sri Lanka, hadn’t noticed the child go into the adult pool. “I wasn’t gone for more than five minutes when I heard the screams, people were shouting, ‘your child is drowning.’“I ran back to the pool, I have no idea how I got there, it was such a blur, a female tourist had pulled my son out of the water.“I did everything I could for my son until the ambulance arrived, but our maids died.“They worked for us for a long time, we loved and trusted them and they us.”According to Dibba Police, the lifeguard who was busy working on another task, noticed the incident too late.Salmeen was taken by plane to Tawam Hospital in Al Ain where he is critically ill.Officials at the hospital say the child is suffering from a serious injury to the brain.The Public Prosecutor, Chief Ebrahim Al Antali, has ordered the bodies of the maids be transferred to Dibba hospital in Fujairah to determine the cause of death.The hotel’s manager has been arrested and detained for further questioning.The lifeguard was also arrested but was then bailed by the Public Prosecutor.Despite allegations that the lifeguard was not available at the time of the incident, Joseph Khoury, owner of the Holiday Beach Motel claimed to Gulf News that the lifeguard had been by the pool all the time.“The lifeguard was there during the incident and as soon as he saw them drowning, he jumped in to help.“The lifeguard did all he could but it was too late for the maids.“For the past 18 years we have not had any drowning incidents, the lifeguard was always there and in this case I blame the child’s guardians, how can you leave your three-year-old child go to the pool with two maids that can’t even swim?“The kid’s parents should have been more attentive of their child.“As for the hotel manager, I have hired him a lawyer and expect that he will be released from prison soon. I would also like to say that I feel for the parents and I hope that their child gets well soon.”
Postmedia to sell properties in B.C. and Alberta to cut costs, reduce debt AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by The Canadian Press Posted Sep 9, 2013 8:38 pm MDT VANCOUVER – The publisher of some of Canada’s largest English-language daily newspapers says it plans to sell two properties in British Columbia and Alberta in a bid to reduce costs and pay down debt.Soon to go on the market will be the Kennedy Heights printing plant in Surrey, B.C., and the Calgary Herald building, announced Postmedia (TSX:PNC.B) newspapers Monday.The Kennedy Heights plant produces the Vancouver Sun and the Province.TC Transcontinental Printing will begin producing the Calgary Herald in November, and Postmedia said it has asked union representatives in Vancouver to “develop alternatives” to the Kennedy Heights plant.A spokesperson for Postmedia could not be immediately reached for comment.“Union officers will be consulting with our legal counsel and meeting with members to discuss our next steps,” said Unifor local 2000, formerly the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union, in an online statement.The statement said union representatives were informed about the decision Monday by Postmedia CEO Paul Godfrey, who presented two possible options.One option for the company in British Columbia would be to open a new plant, but only if the company and the union could reach an agreement that would cut costs by 70 to 75 per cent. Such an agreement would need to be in place by mid-November, the union said.If that doesn’t happen, the union said the company plans to contract out printing to Transcontinental. The union said the company already has a contract in place with Transcontinental.The union’s statement noted its collective agreement stipulates “there will be no involuntary loss of employment of any regular employee during the life of the contract as a result of” contracting out.Gary Engler, vice-president of Unifor local 2000, declined to elaborate on the statement but said members were going to meet at the plant Monday night.Postmedia owns several newspapers, including the National Post, Vancouver Sun and the Ottawa Citizen.The media company announced in July it recorded a loss of $112.2 million in the most recent quarter. Its operating loss was $95.6 million, compared to an operating income of $4.1 million in the third quarter of 2012.In July, Moody’s Investors Service downgraded Postmedia’s rating to negative from stable due to the media company’s declining cash flow as it transitions to a digital business.
A woman working for a collective prepares “clay cakes,” sun-baked disks of clay, butter and salt, which have become a symbol of Haiti’s struggles with extreme poverty and hunger. UN Photo/Logan Abassi Poverty is both a cause and consequence of marginalization and social exclusion, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today, stressing that to fulfil the promise of the 2030 Agenda to leave no one behind, “we must address the humiliation and exclusion of people living in poverty.” In his message to mark the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, the Secretary-General said that implementation of the 2030 Agenda is reaching the end of its first year, and with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), it embodies a universal vision for peace, prosperity and dignity for all people on a healthy planet.Achieving this objective is inconceivable without executing the mandate of SDG 1, which aims to end poverty in all its forms, he explained, stressing that some one billion people still live in extreme poverty and more than 800 million endure hunger and malnutrition. “But poverty is not simply measured by inadequate income. It is manifested in restricted access to health, education and other essential services and, too often, by the denial or abuse of other fundamental human rights,” stated Mr. Ban.He went on to say that humiliation and exclusion are powerful drivers of social unrest and, in extreme cases, the violent extremism that is troubling so many parts of our world. But, in most instances, people living in poverty respond to these societal ills with stoic resilience as they work to escape the degrading reality of their daily lives, continued the Secretary-General. We must break down the walls of poverty and exclusion that plague so many people in every region of the world – Secretary-General Ban Ki-moonNoting the theme for the International Day, Moving from Humiliation and Exclusion to Participation: Ending Poverty in All its Forms, the UN chief said this can be achieved by building inclusive societies and promoting the involvement of people in global efforts. Mr. Ban said it is the duty of all Governments and societies to address socio-economic inequalities and facilitate the engagement of all people living in extreme poverty so they can help themselves, their families and their communities to build a more equitable, sustainable and prosperous future for all. “We must break down the walls of poverty and exclusion that plague so many people in every region of the world. We must build inclusive societies that promote participation by all. We must ensure the voices of all those living in poverty are heard,” he underscored.’Poverty is about money, but never just about money’In her message, on the Day, Irina Bokova, Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultrual Organization (UNESCO) said, “poverty is about money, but never just about money,” as underlined by the agency’s 2016 World Social Science Report. Better understanding of the relationships between income and other dimensions of poverty can help to empower people living in poverty as agents of change, she added.The UNESCO chief went on to say the goal to end poverty in all its forms by 2030 is tough but achievable. “The key to success rests on political determination, driven by solid knowledge about the causes, mechanisms and consequences of poverty,” Ms. Bokova stated. Indeed, eradicating poverty demands renewed policy approaches and more comprehensive and sophisticated knowledge. Beyond traditional mechanisms of poverty reduction, poverty can be only solved by tackling inequalities. “So long as injustice and exploitation are embedded in economic, social and cultural systems, poverty will continue to devastate the lives of millions of women and men,” she said.Ms. Bokova stressed that UNESCO stands for social justice within societies, because ending poverty is not just helping the poor, but also giving everyone a chance to live with dignity.
The only thing Michael Jordan loves more than basketball and money is golf—family notwithstanding, of course. What Jordan likes better than golf is fast golf.So, to satisfy that itch, Jordan is planning on building his own golf course in Florida, according to Sports Illustrated.The rub? He will hand-pick its members. And they, no doubt, will be players who do not waste a lot of time between shots.“Michael likes to play fast and he can’t stand it when people won’t let him through,” a golf-industry insider told SI. This person reportedly knows Jordan and has spoken with several members at Bear’s Club, where Jordan is a member. “That happens enough out there that he’s gotten fed up.”According to the same source, who requested anonymity, Jordan has secured the option on a plot of land in nearby Hobe Sound, just south of the luxe Medalist Golf Club, where Tiger Woods and Rickie Fowler are among its members.One impediment might be the soil where Jordan wants to lay his new sod. According to sources SI spoke to, it’s quite sandy and would be tough to build on.The other interesting news out of this is that Jordan plays golf faster than most anyone. He’d like a round that should take about 4 ½ hours to take less than three hours.“He just steps up, hits, chews your ear off with smack talk and off he goes,” said a source that has played with Jordan. “If he knows the guys he’s with, he will not even wait. He’ll drive up to the green as you’re back in the fairway hitting. And if it’s up to him, his foursome will finish in two hours and 40 minutes.”Presumably, Jordan would institute a dress code that is less stringent than most private golf clubs. After all, Jordan showed up at La Gorce Country Club in Miami two years ago wearing cargo shorts, which was against the dress code at the facility.Apparently no one noticed until he played a few holes of his round. On the 12th hole, Jordan was approached by club personnel who asked that he return to the clubhouse and change his pants.Jordan refused. He was then was asked to leave the course at that point and to never return to the club. With his own place, Jordan would have no such concerns.
Greedfall is an upcoming Action RPG for players who miss the golden age of Bioware. From developer Spiders, the game attempts to distinguish itself from similar titles with its unique setting. Though the world is different from many RPGs, it contains many fundamental elements that fans of the genre have come to expect. I got to play a short demo of Greedfall and found it both refreshing and familiar.Inspired by the real-world 17th century Age of Exploration, Greedfall has players exploring an enormous island named Teer Fradee. Ravaged by overpopulation and a terrible plague, the inhabitants of the old world venture to Teer Fradee in hopes of finding a cure and new lives. The island teems with wildlife, native inhabitants, and various factions from the old world. As the player-character, you travel with your cousin to the new world and act as an impartial diplomat. Remaining neutral in a land of opposing sides presents players with difficult and sometimes impossible challenges.Though large and expansive, Teer Fradee is not a true open-world environment. It instead contains several large open areas. You’ll explore the island with up to two party members. Greedfall allows you to select different classes, each with their own set of unique skills and abilities. You’re free to specialize or become a jack-of-all-trades. Belonging to different factions, your companions come with their own abilities and personal quests. They’ll not only aid you in battle but also help (or hinder) your attempts at diplomacy. You’re also free to strike up romantic relationships with some companions.You can attack foes by using melee and magical attacks. You can even set up traps or use firearms. A tactical pause system allows you to completely halt the action. This not only gives you breathing room when things get heavy, but it allows you to select the actions you wish to take. If you’ve played Dragon Age, this system will be familiar. Magic attacks deal widespread damage or can inflict status effects. Should you run out of MP, you can strike with your melee weapon. In the demo, I used a fire sword, but the game also has daggers, scythes, and broadswords. Like all aspects of Greedfall, player choice is paramount.For the demo, I played a stand-alone quest not related to the main story where I had to locate a scholar who had gone missing in the woods. I fought against packs of werewolves, but a bear also attacked at one point. I dispatched foes with light and heavy melee attacks along with a few well-placed fireballs. Combat was immediate and visceral. The camera’s persistent wobble helped intensify the action. I appreciated how I could dodge attacks at a moment’s notice. Given the ferocity of enemies, especially at night, this was a useful mechanic. The ability to bind actions to the d-pad contributed to the fast pace of combat.In addition to standard melee and magic attacks, you have Fury. This ability allows you to perform attacks that deal greater damage. Every weapon and magic type has its own type of Fury. This means you’ll want to experiment to see which Fury attacks benefit you the most during specific situations. Fury got me out of a few binds during the demo, so it’s a useful tool for keeping yourself alive. It also adds an element of strategy since you’ll have to wait a specified time before you can use another Fury attack.On top of werewolves, I fought against a tough mini-boss. The creature in question was a forest guardian revered by the natives. Feeling confident in my abilities, I engaged the enormous plant-like monster head-on. Being a single foe, it was easier for me to stay locked onto the monster and focus all of my attacks on it. Since the creature was so huge, its attacks came relatively slow. This gave me the chance to strike and then move when its body began to twist. Though I took a beating (and had to drink a few antidotes to counteract poison), I took the beast down with relative ease. Each location has its own guardians and they’re worth fighting for the loot they drop.Though combat is an important aspect of Greedfall, it isn’t the game’s primary focus. You’ll sometimes get better results by being diplomatic or stealthy. During my search, I decided to sneak around a pack of werewolves to avoid detection. Sticking low and to the shadows, I happened upon a group of humans who discussed the missing scholar. Unfortunately, I revealed myself and had to kill most of them. Though I messed up, I appreciated how I could have hung back and listened to the conversation to get the information I needed.You can complete personal quests for each of your party members. Doing so will strengthen your bond with them. Conversely, ignoring allies for too long will make them turn on or abandon you. Considering the different factions in the game, there will be situations where you cannot make everyone happy. You’ll also have to consider which allies you bring to specific regions. For example, you may encounter problems bringing a native to a town that hates natives. Some allies will help you during conversations with NPCs by giving you optional dialogue choices. Others will make matters worse. Deciding which allies you want to bring to missions or which you’re willing to sacrifice relations with adds to Greedall’s appeal.Customization and micromanaging are two other important components of Greedfall. You can choose a male or female who each have a variety of facial types and features. Though you have many types of eyes, noses, hairstyles, and skin colors to choose from, you cannot adjust them individually. Contrasting the simplicity of the character creator is the robust crafting system. Via your camp’s workbench, you’ll have the ability to change hundreds of individual pieces of clothing and weapons. This not only helps you look your best but it gives you the ability to fine-tune your character’s skills and attributes. When playing on Easy or Normal, you don’t need to worry about micromanaging each piece of equipment. During high-difficulty playthroughs, you’ll want control over every iota of your character’s equipment.I knew nothing about Greedfall before playing the demo. Now, it is one of the games I’m most looking forward to this year. I love the renaissance/baroque-inspired aesthetic of the game. The Age of Exploration vibe is also very cool. What’s most impressive about Greedfall is how a team of twenty created a title that rivals any AAA RPG on the market. That alone should make people want to give Greefall a shot when it lands on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on September 10.Pre-order Greedfall on AmazonMore on Geek.com:Hands-On: ‘Oninaki’ Is an Emotional Action RPG ExperienceHands-On: ‘Monster Hunter World: Iceborne’ Beta Left Us Hungry for MoreHands-On: ‘Dauntless’ Is an Accessible Monster-Hunting Experience Sorry, You Can’t Date Keanu Reeves in ‘Cyberpunk 2077”Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form Stay on target
Robert Pattinson as BatmanBossLogic (@Bosslogic/Twitter)Christopher Nolan is currently working on a film that has been described by many as a massive innovative action blockbuster movie. Many have even predicted that the upcoming Nolan movie will show time continuum. The movie’s lead star, Robert Pattinson, has recently revealed some details about the movie.Robert Pattinson is a long way from home. The star became a household name after starring as Edward Cullen in Twilight saga alongside his then-girlfriend Kristen Stewart. Robert is reportedly all set to star in Christopher Nolan’s next big project and has recently admitted that he knows several details about the movie. During a recent interview, Pattinson stated that he has read the script and it is unreal.”I got locked in a room to read the script – I don’t have it myself. I’ve been a little wary of doing big movies for years and years, but there’s just something about Chris Nolan’s stuff. He seems like the only director now who can do what is essentially a very personal, independent movie that has a huge scale. I read the script and it’s unreal,” Pattinson told USA Today.Christopher Nolan’s movie after Dunkirk will also feature John David Washington and Elizabeth Debicki in the important roles. Other than this, we have absolutely no idea what Nolan is making or what his next movie will be called. However, it has not stopped his fans from speculating. Christopher NolanReutersIf we look back to Christopher Nolan’s filmography, we find that time is something which he loves to explore. In movies like Inception and Interstellar, time and theories related to time, played a crucial role in the story’s main plot details. Hence, several Nolan fans are speculating that the untitled project will revolve around the time continuum.In addition to this, it was speculated in the past that Christopher Nolan’s next project will be somewhat like Inception but it will have elements like Alfred Hitchcock’s famous movie, North By Northwest. However, Warner Bros. later clarified that these speculations are not true.Well, when it comes to Christopher Nolan movie, fans can only guess what’s in store for them. We had no idea that we were going to see the fifth-dimension in Interstellar and we all were clueless when he played beautifully with time in Dunkirk. With his next project, the anticipation is simply skyrocketing.
Workers walk in front of the Vedanta Aluminium factory in Lanjigarh of Orissa in this file photo. Big project investments by corporates in India during 2016-17 have grown at the slowest pace since 1992, investment analysts said. REUTERS/Reinhard KrauseIn a situation where capital utilisation by larger manufacturing companies is at 75 percent currently, and banks refusing to lend more to debt-saddled corporate, fresh investments have been coming at a premium.New investments from the corporate sector hit a new low in 2016-17. The combined capital expenditure (capex) by the country’s top 1,000 non-financial firms, in terms of revenue, was up just 5.8 per cent in fiscal 2017, growing at the slowest pace since 1992. The previous low of capex growth was in 1999-00, after the dotcom bubble of 2000.In all these, the top 1,000 companies made fresh investments of Rs 2.07 lakh crore in the last fiscal year, down from Rs 2.9 lakh crore in 2015-16, and an all-time high of Rs 5.7 lakh crore in 2013-14.An analysis of a common sample of listed companies suggests the investment drought is being led by domestic private sector companies, in complete contrast to their behaviour in the past, financial daily Business Standard said in a report on Saturday.The combined capex by listed Indian private sector companies grew at a record low of 5 per cent in 2016-17, against 9.4 per cent, and 5.3 per cent growth in capex reported by listed central public sector enterprises (CPSEs) and Indian subsidiaries of global multinationals (MNCs). This is the slowest growth in capex by the private sector companies in the last 12 years, the report said.Analysts attributed the decline to a poor demand in the economy and reluctance by banks to lend to new projects, Business Standard said. “It’s in line with a near-collapse in bank credit growth in the last fiscal year. Public sector banks have put a virtual freeze on fresh lending to risky projects, fearing bad loans hitting funding for large industrial projects,” G Chokkalingam, founder & managing director, Equinomics Research & Advisory, told Business Standard.The incremental capex by listed private sector companies nearly halved to around Rs 1.1 lakh crore in the last fiscal year, against Rs 2.15 lakh crore a year ago. The amount is the lowest in 10 years and a third of record high reached in 2011-12.In contrast, private sector companies have accounted for 80 per cent of all incremental capex by listed non-financial and non-oil public sector undertakings (PSUs) in the past decade. In absolute terms, private sector companies have cumulatively invested around Rs 26 lakh crore in fixed assets (net of accumulated depreciation) in the past decade, against Rs 32 lakh crore invested by all listed companies during the period.The analysis is based on the annual finances of a common sample of 728 companies that are part of BSE 500, BSE MidCap and BSE SmallCap index. The sample excludes banks and financials, and public sector energy companies such as Oil and Natural Gas Corporation, IndianOil and Hindustan Petroleum, the Business Standard report said.Fiscal 2017 figures were taken based on unaudited financials, which may not include subsidiaries’ data of some companies, while capex refers to annual incremental growth in fixed assets defined as gross block minus accumulated depreciation plus capital work in progress, the paper said.
Displaced Rohingya people at a makeshift camp in Kutupalong, Cox’s Bazar. UNB file photoThough the election commission has asked Rohingyas not to venture out of their camps here for a certain period, locals fear that the refugees may spell trouble during the national election on Sunday, reports UNB.Md Ayub Majhi (leader) of Ukhiya’s Kutupalang Camp 5, said Rohingyas are coming out of their camps and going to various nearby places. “I’m not sure where they’re going or whether they’re joining any political campaign,” he said.On 21 December, the EC issued a circular restricting the movement of Rohingya people staying in refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar during the election.A circular, signed by EC deputy secretary Atiar Rahman, states that Rohingya people may be used in the 11th parliamentary polls for creating anarchy in favour of different candidates.To restrict their movements, the commission asked the authorities concerned to work so that they cannot come out from the camps from 7:00 pm on 29 December to 8:00 am on 31 December.There was no such embargo on Rohingyas’ movement during the 2014 and 2008 elections, said Palangkhali Union Parishad chairman Gafur Uddin Chowdhury.”During those times, the Rohingyas had influenced the polls in many ways,” he said adding, “This year, after the polls schedule announcement, many Rohingyas went out of the camps in groups and some of them even got involved in campaigns.”Blame GameThe ruling Awami League and BNP have been accusing each other of using the refugees for political gains ahead of the election.The local unit of Awami League claims that BNP and its allies are using Rohingyas in their campaigns. “Rohingyas have been seen in the processions of BNP candidates,” said Jahangir Kabir Chowdhury, the party’s Ukhiya upazila unit general secretary.He said they (Rohingyas) may cause problems during the election, a claim turned down by BNP leaders.Sarwar Jahan Chowdhury, BNP’s Ukhiya upazila unit chief, claimed that the ruling party is using the Rohingyas in many ways. “They may even try to mobilise the Rohingyas on the voting day and use them against their rivals,” he said.The smell of money, and bloodRohingyas are using the election season to earn some extra cash. But their involvement in the election process may lead to unrest, locals fear.Advocate Ayachur Rahman, general secretary of Save Cox’s Bazar Movement, said a number of Rohingyas, who came to Bangladesh during 1978-79, had managed to enlist as voters.”Those Rohingyas and the new arrivals might get involved in the election and sabotage the polling booths,” he said.”Rohingyas have been ordered not to leave the camps from 7:00pm of 29 December to 8:00am of 31 December,” said Cox’s Bazar returning officer and deputy commissioner Md Kamal Hossain.During this period, NGO workers and volunteers will also be barred from entering or leaving the camps in cars. However, they will be allowed to use cars to deliver food and emergency medical help.Many locals say they feel the EC embargo should have been longer.”This short-time ban has given Rohingyas the opportunity to take part in polls campaigns. We fear that they can cause large scale violence,” said Gafur, also general secretary of Rohingya Repatriation Committee.Law enforcement and security agencies are on alert.Cox’s Bazar police chief AKM Iqbal Hossain has said the law enforcement agencies have been cautiously taking position around Rohingya camps in Ukhiya and Teknaf while police, RAB, BGB, and Ansar members are patrolling the sites.”It (the EC order) is to make sure that nobody can use the Rohingyas for political mileage or to cause disorder,” said Kamal.
The 14th Finance Commission on Tuesday suggested a fiscal deficit target of 3.6 per cent of GDP in 2015-16 and 3 per cent in the subsequent years on the back of likely pick-up in economic growth.Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who is scheduled to present Budget on Saturday, in the Action Taken Report said “the Commission has made recommendations that deal with issues including GST, fiscal environment and fiscal consolidation road map… these recommendations will be examined in due course in consultation with various stakeholders.”
WinRAR 5.50 released with important changes by Martin Brinkmann on August 14, 2017 in Software – Last Update: August 14, 2017 – 23 commentsWinRAR 5.50 was released on August 14, 2017. The new version comes with important changes that users of the application need to be aware of.Probably the two biggest changes of WinRAR 5.50 are that the program uses the RAR 5.0 archive format by default when it comes to the creation of archives, and the new master password option to protect saved password records by using encryption.The RAR 5 archive format was introduced in WinRAR 5.0 which the company released back in 2013 to the public. It was not set as the default back in 2013, and users of the program had to change the program’s configuration to make it the default.Tip: Find out how to identify RAR5 archives.WinRAR 5.50This changes with the release of WinRAR 5.50. RAR 5 is the default format of WinRAR 5.50 and newer versions of the program. Most third-party programs that can extract archives support the RAR 5.0 format, and this is likely the reason why it has been made the default in WinRAR 5.50.WinRAR users who prefer the RAR4 format, for instance for compatibility reasons, can make it the default format again in the following way:Open WinRAR on the system.Select Options > Settings from the menu.Switch to the Compression tab.Select Create default…Select RAR4 under General to make it the default. You may make ZIP the default as well.WinRAR 5.50 Master PasswordThe second new feature of WinRAR 5.50 is the option to set a master password.Select Options > Settings in WinRAR.Switch to the Compression tab.Select Create default..Select Set password.Open Organize passwords.Select Set master password when the organize passwords window opens.You are asked to enter and confirm a password. This password protects saved password records from unauthorized access.Passwords stored in the password organizer of WinRAR 5.50 are not readable in older versions because of a new data format that is used.A prompt to set the master password is displayed when you are storing a password in a compression profile.WinRAR 5.50 other changesHere is a short list of other changes that WinRAR 5.50 comes with:Support for the .lz archive format.LZ and ZIPX extensions added to integration list under Settings > Integration.WinRAR uses AES-256 encryption to encrypt ZIP archives. This may cause incompatibility with older unzip software, and if you want to avoid this, you may enable ZIP legacy compression in the password dialog to avoid this.WinRAR supports PAX headers and uses them when extracting TAR archives.High Precision Modification Time option is replaced by High Precision Time Format.Settings > General has a new “full paths in title bar” option.Settings > Compression has a new “file types to open as archives first” option to define what a double-click / Enter-key initiates on non-archive extensions and archive content.File menu has a new “copy full names to clipboard” option.WinRAR context menu has been optimized.WinRAR prompts to re-enter a password if the first entered password to extract an archive is invalid (it exited before).Plenty of bug fixes.You find the full list of changes in WinRAR 5.50 on the official website.

Of course it’s not actually magic—it’s a chemical reaction. There are several parts of this reaction, so let’s look at each part. When I think of Halloween, I think of kids outside in the dark. Traditionally, this is the way it works. First, darkness makes everything just a little bit spookier and more Halloween-like. Second, the end of October used to be after the end of Daylight Savings Time such that it would get dark earlier. Of course this year, Daylight Savings Time doesn’t end until November 4.However, let’s assume it’s dark. Kids running around in the dark on streets with cars can lead to bad things. Bad as in real bad, not bad as in “oh, I got this terrible candy.” But adults can help these kids be safer in the dark with two different items: the glow stick and the retroreflector. I’m going to go over the science of both these devices.Glow StickPlease tell me you have played with one of these things. Just in case, I’ll describe a glow stick. It’s usually in some type of plastic container that is, as the name implies, stick-shaped. Inside the plastic are two chemicals separated by thin glass. When you crack the interior glass, the two chemicals mix and produce light. It’s super awesome. Kids love it. OK, I love it too. It just seems like magic.

However, because of the angle the reflected light goes away from the car. If the light doesn’t get back into the human’s eye, the human sees nothing. Only in that one mirror orientation in which the mirror is mostly vertical does light get back into the driver’s eye. But wait! It’s even worse than that. Real life is in three dimensions. That means the left-right orientation of the mirror also has to be just right. It’s as though the child is not even there—stealth child. Side note: this is essentially how stealth planes work. They reflect radar waves away from the radar detector so that it isn’t “seen.”Now for the retroreflector. These don’t work the same way as a shiny mirror. Just take a look at these running shoes in a dark room.Rhett AllainFor most of the stuff in the room, light from the camera reflects off and away from the source. Since the light doesn’t go back to the camera, things just look dark. The retroreflector material on the shoe is different. This makes the light go straight back to the source. It’s so much reflected light from the retroreflector that it makes the shoe super bright.OK, but how does it work? Actually, there are different ways to make a retroreflector. The simplest uses flat mirrors arranged at right angles to each other. Here is one I made with some small and cheap mirrors.Rhett AllainWe can see how this works by drawing a diagram of a similar device in two dimensions. When light hits two of the mirrors, the combination of reflections sends light back to the location of the source. First, the actual chemical reaction. In most cases, the two chemicals are hydrogen peroxide and phenyl oxalate ester—but if you aren’t familiar with these two chemicals it might as well be peanut butter and jelly. What happens when chemicals react? They change chemical bonds to produce two new chemicals. Although it takes energy to break the original chemical bonds (yes, it takes energy to BREAK bonds), you get even more energy when forming bonds for the new chemicals. So, in the end you get some energy from this reaction.The next part is even more complicated—it is the tracking of this energy you get when new bonds form. What happens to that energy? It doesn’t just go away. Instead this energy is used to excite electrons to higher energy levels. Yes, electrons can only have certain energies in a bounded system like in an atom. This is one of the key ideas in quantum mechanics. Of course, the opposite is also true. If you take a glow stick and put it in hot water, it will get brighter. By increasing the temperature of the chemicals, they will react at a faster rate and produce more light. Unfortunately, this means you will run out of products faster and the glow stick will die sooner. You’ll just have to grab another one out of the box.RetroreflectorsThere’s another way to increase visibility on a dark road that doesn’t require a chemical reaction. If you grab a pair of running shoes (even some running shorts and shirts), you will find some retroreflectors. When you shine a light on them, they look like they are lights themselves. But of course they aren’t lights.To really understand retroreflectors, you need to first consider how humans see stuff. A common idea is that we see with some type of “vision” that comes out of our eyes. But our eyes don’t really shoot stuff out of them (unless you are Superman with his heat vision)—eyes are just passive devices. They detect light that comes into them, that’s all they do.If you want to see that apple sitting on the table, you need light. Light has to hit the apple, reflect off of it and then enter your eye. If there is no light, you don’t see an apple.OK, what about normal reflectors like a flat mirror? How does light interact with these (and what do they have to do with retroreflectors). Think about light as a beam (which it’s not really) coming out of something like a flashlight. When it interacts with a mirror, the light reflects off in such a way that the angle of light hitting the mirror is the same as the angle leaving the mirror. Here is diagram (note that you can not actually see the beam of light from the side).Rhett AllainIn physics, we say “the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection”—but you can just say the angles are the same if that makes you happy. But now imagine this. Suppose you are in a car at night and you point your headlights straight ahead. In the dark there is a child in front of you. The child is wearing a flat mirror because—I don’t know why, it’s Halloween and weird stuff happens. Here is how the light might travel. Rhett AllainThat is your most basic retroreflector. But it’s sort of bulky and probably wouldn’t work too well with a kid’s Halloween costume. Fortunately, there is another design for a retroreflector—super tiny glass beads. When light enters these tiny glass balls, the light both bends due to refraction and reflects off the back wall of the sphere. This combination results in the light coming back out the same way it came in. For most of the retroreflective stuff you see, it’s made with these tiny glass beads (super tiny) and not the flat mirrors. That’s how those reflective shoes and traffic signs look so bright in the dark. You can buy some retroreflector material in the form of tape or on a vest. Throw this stuff on top of your kids costume and boom—they are now much more visible to cars. And they’re safer too (but not safe from eating too much candy).Oh, you know what else is like a glass bead retroreflector? Eyes. Especially dog eyes. Here is a picture of our family dog in a dark room.Rhett AllainThe light from the camera reflects off the dog’s eyes to come right back to the camera and make them appear super bright. If you were standing a little bit to the side of the light source, you wouldn’t see the bright eyes since all the light goes back to the source. It’s still a pretty cool effect and sometimes a little creepy. Perfect for Halloween. In most atoms, excited electrons just drop back down to lower energy levels with no problem—but not here. In this case, electrons move to higher energy levels that don’t really match up with transitions back to lower energy levels. It’s almost like a forbidden transition, but it’s not completely forbidden. Maybe this would be considered a “strongly discouraged” transition. Since the transition to a lower level isn’t simple, it can take the electrons quite a long time to make this jump down. But when they do, they release energy in the form of light. And that is where the light comes from in a glow stick.Then why does the glow stick last for quite some time? Why doesn’t it just flash and then turn off? We’ve already seen the first reason—the “strongly discouraged” transitions makes the electrons stay in the excited state for awhile. But there is also the matter of the chemical reaction. The two chemicals in the glow stick have to mix and react to make the light. This doesn’t happen right away. The two substances have to evenly mix, and then two separate molecules have to find another unreacted molecule. The reaction takes time.Since this glow stick thing is based on a chemical reaction, you can actually make it last longer—sort of. If you put the glow stick in the freezer after it starts glowing, its temperature will decrease. With a lower temperature, there will be less motion of the molecules in the liquid and they will interact at a slower rate. It won’t completely stop the reaction, but it will slow it enough that you should be able to use the glow stick again.

by just 20 percent of critics Contact us at editors@timecomThe only thing worse than getting the flu is catching it after youve gotten a flu shot Its been a terrible year for outbreaks the worst in almost a decade Contributing to that is the high failure rate of this years vaccine The current shot is just 25 percent effective against the H3N2 virus this seasons most-often-identified strain by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention The experts say with enough time and money they can do a lot better "There has to be a wholesale change to how we make the flu vaccine" said Amesh Adalja senior scholar at Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security "Were always setting ourselves up for vaccine mismatch and failures and the like because of the lead time in how long it takes the vaccines to be made" Drug companies and public-health agencies are already grappling with the challenge of next year and beyond Officials must decide several months ahead of flu season the make-up of the years vaccine Flu shots are typically 40 percent to 60 percent effective in any given season though this year fell short of that mark The ultimate goal is a universal vaccine that would operate more like a measles inoculation than a vaccine targeted at a handful of strains of flu The idea is to offer something closer to 90 percent protection against a disease for years if not for life with a single vaccine Its still early days And out-maneuvering the stealthy ever-mutating flu virus is about as tricky as it gets There are hundreds of different viruses and seasonal vaccines protect only against the three or four that researchers think will be the most common that season creating an ever-moving target for public-health experts The current epidemic has provided a new sense of urgency to push ahead Leading the charge from Big Pharma are drugmaking giants including GlaxoSmithKline PLC Sanofi SA and Johnson & Johnson Sanofi the worlds biggest flu-vaccine maker signed a deal with SK Chemicals Co in February to advance the development of a universal vaccine John Shiver senior vice president of global vaccines research and development at Sanofi Pasteur says its hard for the scientific community to move away from the existing technologies to create a new one in part because those have been relatively successful over the past 70 years Recently though some new research leads have turned up potentially promising approaches One that Sanofi already uses relies on cell cultures rather than eggs to develop vaccines because some viruses do not reproduce as well in eggs That was a problem for instance with this years vaccine against the H3N2 strain some experts maintain Scientists have also developed ways to use whats known as recombinant DNA technology in the production of cell-based vaccines That allows them to find individual genes on a virus that are more likely to stimulate an immune response cut them out and insert them into the genome of another organism to make a more successful vaccine Even using such advanced techniques a flu vaccine with 90 percent effectiveness may be beyond reach given the scientific challenges of targeting the virus over time Shiver imagines that even a universal shot were it to be successfully developed would have to be constantly tweaked "We dont know the best way to produce them which is why at Sanofi Pasteur weve been accumulating technology for flexibility" he said Johnson & Johnsons Janssen research group is also doing pre-clinical work on a universal vaccine "New innovations for influenza are urgently needed" said Julian Symons research and development leader of respiratory infections GlaxoSmithKline another leading vaccine developer is conducting one of the first studies of a universal flu vaccine in humans The shot is based on research directed in part by Peter Palese the chair of microbiology at Mount Sinais Icahn School of Medicine in New York Unlike current vaccines that target constantly changing proteins on the surface of the flu virus Paleses approach targets a part of the virus that remains relatively stable from year to year Glaxo is lending expertise in boosting the immune response through vaccination particularly because that region of the virus doesnt typically elicit a big immune response Anthony Fauci director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases says an effective universal flu vaccine would outsell the seasonal one The annual vaccine brought in $24 billion for Sanofi and GSK in 2017 alone Vaccines can be big business for pharma companies: Pfizer Incs Prevnar which prevents certain forms of pneumonia was its top-selling product last year bringing in $56 billion Other lucrative vaccines include Merck & Cos $23 billion-in-sales Gardasil which protects against the human papillomavirus and Sanofis vaccine against polio and whooping cough also about a $2 billion-a-year business In order to have a crack at those sorts of numbers some experts say the push for a universal flu vaccine is going to require stepped-up investment "If you look at the resources that are now dedicated to the universal influenza vaccine its really small across the world so there certainly needs to be mobilization" said Wayne Koff chief executive officer and president of the Human Vaccines Project an organization that seeks to speed up vaccine development Koff previously worked at the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative and sees parallels between the two viruses When the public stepped up its efforts to fight HIV and AIDS the research community received much-needed funding to develop the antivirals that have since transformed the way HIV is treated Some lawmakers are heeding the call Senator Ed Markey a Massachusetts Democrat introduced the Flu Vaccine Act this month which would provide $1 billion over five years to fund efforts by the National Institutes of Health to develop a universal flu vaccine By comparison Faucis division within NIH spent an estimated $64 million on such research in fiscal 2017 Even the most dedicated researchers say results wont come overnight and people should keep taking the seasonal flu shot for now "This system prevents a lot of disease and it is our best tool" said Leonard Friedland director of scientific affairs for vaccines in North America at GSK "Would we like to have vaccines
