Acer Iconia Tab A100 is the first 7inch Android 32 tablet up

first_imgWhile the market is already flush with 10-inch Android tablets, a new generation of scaled-down models have been looming for quite some time. Following in the footsteps of the BlackBerry PlayBook, these new Android tablets will arrive bearing 7 and 8-inch displays and Android 3.2, the Honeycomb update designed to make the tablet experience resolution-agnostic en route to Ice Cream Sandwich’s promised land of complete screen size independence. One of the first you’ll find on retail shelves in the U.S. is the brand new Acer Iconia Tab A100, a 7-incher sporting Android 3.2.So what else has Acer packed inside the slightly smaller A100? Pretty well the same internals you’d find in a 10″ Android tablet: a dual-core NVidia Tegra 2 processor running at 1GHz, 1GB RAM, 8 or 16GB of internal storage, 5MP front-facing (with autofocus and an LED flash) and 2MP rear-facing cameras, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microSD expansion with support for cards up to 32GB, MicroHDMI and headphone output, digital compass, accelerometer, and a proprietary dock connector. The 7-inch display packs 1024×600 pixels and retail pricing for the A100 starts at around $329. Surprisingly, the 16GB version is listed at just $20 more — which looks like a mistake, noting what other Android tablet makers have been charging for boosted internal storage capacities.Acer is also bundling some pre-installed apps, including Flash Player 10.3 and Acer’s own LumiReader (for eBooks) and Social Jogger (for Twitter and Facebook). The A100’s front-facing camera can record 720P video at 30FPS, and the tablet is also DLNA capable, making it easy to stream your recordings to other certified devices.While the A100’s size and sub-one-pound weight make it a bit more portable, there’s a slight catch. It also sports a less capacious 1530mAh lithium polymer battery pack, rated for about 5 hours of use.via Slashgearlast_img read more

Harmless Home Built From LegoInspired Bricks Made With Hemp

first_img San Diego to Build Charging Stations for 3,000 Electric Buses, TrucksHydrogen-Powered Plane Can Fly 20 Passengers Up to 500 Miles Stay on target Concrete masonry units — you might know them as cinder blocks — have been a construction staple since the turn of the 20th century. They’re still widely used today, but builders are looking for more sustainable alternatives.One of those may be the slick modular bricks you see above. They’re produced by Just Bio Fiber out of Calgary, and are basically made from three ingredients: hemp, lime, and water. As you may have guessed from their appearance, the design was inspired by Lego bricks.The short fibers from the core of the stem, called hurd, are mixed with the other ingredients and pressed into a block. Integrated channels provide a route for wire and tubing.The hemp-based blocks “breathe.” They’re water and air permeable which means they aren’t susceptible to mold. Bio Fiber blocks are also highly fire-resistant. In tests, the blocks have survived being heated to more than 1500 degrees.According to the company their strength actually increases over time. However despite their strength and durability Bio Fiber blocks are still incredibly easy to work with.They can also be cut to size with any ordinary power saw. The Lego-like mortise and tenon design makes stacking the blocks a breeze — and at about 25 percent less weight than regular cinder blocks they’re easier to lug around.But wait, there’s more! Bio Fiber blocks are naturally good insulators. A standard cinder block has an R-value of about .2. Bio Fiber blocks can range from R-27 to R-40. That’s better than a 2×6 wall with spray foam insulation.As if all that wasn’t enough, Bio Fiber blocks are carbon-negative. Every cubic meter of Bio Fiber captures an estimated 130kg of carbon dioxide.The blocks are currently being used to construct a net-zero home on Vancouver Island. In addition to using Just Bio Fiber’s innovative blocks, the home is equipped with a solar roof and a Tesla PowerWall to help satisfy its energy needs.More on Create World’s First Bricks Made from Human UrineThis Italian City Gives You Free Beer for Riding Your BikeDoctors to Start Prescribing ‘Museum Art’ for Better Healthlast_img read more

Pale Waves Share How Their EP Influenced My Mind Makes Noises Album

first_imgThe 14-track debut album was released Sept. 14 and is inspired by the band’s different, unique influences. “Some tracks are really influenced by the R&B side of Ciara and then some really, sort of pop-y songs and then some really dark songs,” Heather Baron-Gracie, the lead singer of the band told the Recording Academy.Before recording My Mind Makes Noises, their EP was the first time they had ever really recorded music properly. “It was stressful, but a learning opportunity,” member Ciara Doran said.The EP also gave them songs that are still important to them, especially as they show their growth as artists.”‘The Tide’ and ‘Heavenly,’ they were our first-ever songs that we wrote as a band, so it’s really special for us to have them actually still in our lives,” Baron-Gracie said. “I think a lot of artists would get rid of them.”Wes Period On His Experience Touring With Kesha And Macklemore News The English indie band learned a lot while making their EP – learn how it helped shape their debut albumJennifer VelezGRAMMYs Sep 25, 2018 – 6:25 pm Hailing from England, Pale Waves have been taking over the U.K. with their synth-pop sounds.

Game of Thrones creators get next Star Wars film and not everyones

first_img Comments Originally published 11:17 a.m. PT.  TV and Movies d&d have already ruined GoT now they’re gonna ruin Star Wars??? who thought this was a good idea?? i need a word— 𝐅𝐚𝐢𝐭𝐡 ‎‎‎☾ (@MysaTheLesbian) May 14, 2019 7 Please do not use D&D for #starwars. They are not good writers… Just look at the mess that is GOT now. No Rian Johnson or Weiss and Benioff #Disney. Stop killing Star wars…— Christian Lemus (@DerelictAdvent) May 14, 2019 Iger said he hasn’t seen the finished Rise of Skywalker yet, but he expects it will be extremely popular. He said it would be smart “to take a bit of a hiatus” after the film’s release. Disney settled on three years as the proper amount of time for a breather. That’s how we ended up with 2022 as the next Star Wars film release date, though there will be Disney Plus streaming television shows to keep fans engaged in the meantime.Benioff and Weiss are wrapping up what has been a largely triumphant eight-season run on Game of Thrones, but their storytelling decisions during the final episodes have triggered criticism from some fans of the show. Unhappy viewers took to Twitter to suggest the pair, known informally as “D&D,” might ruin Star Wars.  Tags 23 Photoscenter_img Star Wars looks to the future Share your voice All the Star Wars movies, from the cheesy to great, ranked David Benoiff and D.B. Weiss have their hands full. Art Streiber/HBO It’s official. Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will soon be going from swords to lightsabers when they will helm the next Star Wars movie after 2019’s The Rise of Skywalker.We already knew Disney had signed the pair up for a Star Wars adventure. We also knew Disney had an unnamed Star Wars movie penciled in for 2022. Chairman Bob Iger revealed on Tuesday how those puzzle pieces fit together.”The next movie that we release will be theirs, and we’re not saying more about that,” Iger said during the MoffettNathanson 6th Annual Media & Communications Summit in New York. These sort of reactions show the depth of feelings around beloved franchises like Game of Thrones and Star Wars. We’ve seen the online wrath fans can rain down when they get upset. The preemptive anger on Twitter around Benioff and Weiss taking on Star Wars feels a lot like shaking your fist at an uncertain future. Maybe you don’t like what Daenerys did. Maybe you wanted a different fate for your Game of Thrones favorites. Does that mean D&D’s Star Wars vision will suck? We’ll have to wait until 2022 to find out.

Writers experiences with cinematic adaptations

first_imgIt can be one of the most controversial outcomes of writing a popular book – that it will be adapted into a film and in the process, lose a part of its plot, characterisation and the ability to get into the characters’ mindset and motivations. No matter how faithful to the written version, there will be something that will enrage the book’s admirers. But what do the writers themselves think? Addressing this seminal question were five acclaimed novelists and/or screenwriters of contemporary times, who had different views on this issue which spans authorship, creative freedom, interpretation and differences in story-telling across various media. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfSetting the ball rolling was Booker Prize winner Michael Ondaatje, who felt that turning a novel into a film first entailed finding “a short story within it.” Holding there were many feted but not that simple films, he, however, said their plots or style cannot be as complex as those of novels, citing the case of his ‘The English Patient’, whose film version cut out the book’s non-chronological narrative to make a more coherent depiction onscreen. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveHowever, he acknowledged, filmmaking has its unique techniques or “subliminal elements”, which can lead to the entire story being restructured in the various stages of the adaptation.Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Mira Nair stated that retaining the book’s essence is as important as creative freedom, noting she treats her works with “the same love and idiosyncrasies.” Of her adaptation of Jhumpa Lahiri’s ‘The Namesake’, she said that author created the novel, and she shepherded the film’s direction with her own inventiveness in meaning-making. This included, she said, an added focus on the parents’ point-of-view and visual dimensions of Kolkata absent in the book, part of her “inventions that make the film breathe and feel like it’s of the soil.” For Chinese-American author Amy Tan, the 1993 movie adaptation of her ‘The Joy Luck Club’, for which she co-wrote the screenplay, had to fit into its own form. What was important to her was finding the heart and soul of the book and creating a fresh narrative for the cinematic form. “I was more disrespectful to my book than the filmmakers!” she admitted but added that she felt no artistic disconnect with the film version which retained the essence of her story.Tan also opined that the power of cinematic adaptation also lay in the “freedom to sculpt a distinct narrative.”British novelist and screenwriter Nicholas Shakespeare added that in cinema the medium changes, and a central character in the novel can be replaced with the vantage point of the camera, while a screenwriter has the additional access to music and silences.But his compatriot, veteran playwright (“Arcadia”, “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead” etc) and Academy award-winning screenwriter (“The Russia House”, “Shakespeare in Love”) Sir Tom Stoppard believes that the “malleability of form subverts any attempt at making a unified declaration of adapting books to screen.”Stoppard admitted that as a text-driven writer, he finds himself “pitched between a moral duty to be faithful to work and a professional duty to be the handmaiden of the director” but added that between the two, he would be more inclined to be more defensive of the film, because of his intimacy with the form.The greatest of films are not those that follow rules to ensure risk-free filmmaking but those that are “transcendent rule-breakers”, he contended,Asked which of his works he felt didn’t work on the screen, he quipped: “Which one worked, by the way?”last_img read more

Portugal orders Khadi ahead of Gandhis birth anniversary

first_imgTo bring out a “commemorative khadi stamp on Mahatma Gandhi” on his 150th birth anniversary on October 2, Portugal has ordered the signature fabric of India, the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC), said on July 5. After the successful dispatch of this consignment on June 29, KVIC Chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena said that in February 2019, Khadi samples gratis were provided to the Cartor Security Printing Agency of Lisbon for stamp testing on behalf of the Postal Services of Portugal (CTT) for printing the stamps. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”The Cartor Security Printing Agency had successfully completed the testing and later Dr Arjun Deore, the Second Secretary in the Embassy of India in Lisbon has confirmed the same to KVIC and requested us to supply 4,000 meters of exclusive 300-count muslin Khadi Fabric in bundles of 11 meters,” he said, adding, “Though the monetary value of this order is little over Rs 21 lakh, it values much more for the KVIC as Khadi and Bapu both would be showcased in Portugal’s stamp simultaneously.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveHowever, Khadi’s global presence is not a new phenomenon. In April 2018, noted fashion designer Gavin Rajah choreographed a 20-minute textile event aimed to project Khadi in a modern and trendy style at Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa. In June 2018, Khadi also draped around a train and station at the Pietermaritzburg Railway Station in South Africa where Mahatma Gandhi was thrown off a train for refusing to give up his seat in a first class, “whites-only” compartment in 1893. The KVIC, for the first time, organised exclusive khadi exhibitions in 10 countries on August 15, 2018 and enthused by the massive response in those countries,the KVIC again organised khadi exhibitions in another 50 countries on October 2 last year. This order from Lisbon perhaps is the outcome of Khadi’s exposure at various exhibitions held in the recent past.last_img read more

Asian cities are now outranking European and American cities on tourist arrivals

first_imgPuerto Vallarta Tourism Chief: Visit to become one of us, you will be safe!IGLTA and European Travel Commission Sign Partnership to Strengthen Promotion of LGBT – Welcoming Tourism in EuropeVisitBritain celebrating UK Government’s largest participation in Pride activities in the AmericasMore articles on eTurboNews click here eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Bangkok continues to remain the top international tourist destination globally for the third consecutive year, with 20.8 million international visitors in 2017. Tourism-friendly visa policies of Thailand, strong promotional efforts and low cost connectivity drove Bangkok to the top spot.London was the second most preferred destination with 20.4 million international visitors riding on the back of deprecation in the value of British Pound since Brexit referendum, followed by Singapore, Dubai and Hong Kong with 17.42 million, 15.8 million and 14.03 million, respectively. Asian cities had outnumbered their counterparts in Europe and America in terms of international tourist arrivals in 2017, according to leading data and analytics company a. Asia was represented by seven cities—Bangkok, Singapore, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur and Shenzhen—while Europe, Middle East and America were limited to one city each—with London, Dubai and New York City respectively.Depreciation of most of the Asian currencies (except Chinese Yuan) played a vital role in attracting international visitors to Asian cities. Tourists from Europe and China were behind the growth of international arrivals to Asia. Konstantina Boutsioukou, Travel and Tourism Analyst says: “Huge expanding middle class, the growth of low cost carriers and geographical proximity makes traveling within Asia easy and convenient, particularly for the first time travelers.”Boutsioukou adds: “Such figures point out that even more affluent consumers have to save for a holiday, meaning that they cannot travel at the drop of a hat and still view international travel as part of an aspirational lifestyle.”However, despite lower hotel cost, the occupancy rate in most of the Asian cities was around 70%, lower than cities in Europe and America in 2017. This is because the growth in hotel development in recent years is substantially higher than the growth in the number of travelers, hence, a considerable number of rooms remains unoccupied. Exception is seen in Tokyo, Singapore and Seoul, where business purpose tourists helped maintain occupancy rate at more than 80%. In terms of average daily rate (ADR), New York City leads the pack followed by London.Travel and tourism sector contribution to Asian cities’ economy and employment has witnessed significant growth during the last decade. For instance, Bangkok tourism sector’s contribution to its total GDP increased from 8.2% in 2006 to 10.14% in 2017, according to World Travel & Tourism Council. Similarly, Dubai tourism sector contributed 9.52% to the total GDP and accounted for 10.94% in total employment in 2017. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading…last_img read more

Turkey blames Greece for talks failure

first_imgTurkey on Wednesday blamed Greece for the failure of reunification talks in Switzerland to yield any positive results, after Greek Foreign Minister Nicos Kotzias suggested on Monday that Turkey had held an uncompromising stance.Turkish foreign ministry spokesman Hüseyin Müftüoğlu, said in a statement that Kotzias’ comments were unacceptable.On Monday, Kotzias suggested that Turkey had displayed an uncompromising attitude during the Conference on Cyprus, held in Crans-Montana between 28 June – 7 July 2017.“As we have previously emphasized, Turkey attended the Crans-Montana session of the Conference on Cyprus with the goodwill and constructive attitude we had been displaying since the very beginning of the negotiation process, with the aim of reaching a just and sustainable comprehensive settlement to the Cyprus issue. In any case, all participants would be aware of who did and did not behave constructively,” Müftüoğlu said.The Turkish diplomat said Ankara was not surprised by Kotzias’ unfounded allegations and engagement in a blame game.“Those who know that their approach is unconstructive and wholly devoid of the spirit of compromise, are prone to voicing baseless and untrue allegations so as to be able to blame those who display good faith and constructiveness, contrary to themselves,” Müftüoğlu said.“As the one responsible for the inability of the Conference on Cyprus to produce results either in Geneva or in Crans-Montana, Greek Foreign Minister Mr Kotzias’ useless efforts to place the blame on Turkey are actually an attempt to disguise the fact that the negotiations failed because of the lack of good faith and political will on the part of his country and the Greek Cypriot side.Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci said great progress had been achieved in the first year of the talks, but that the Greek Cypriot side gradually started to change its position after September 2016.“Instead of a military force of a few hundred, it was preferred to keep 40,000 troops,” Akinci said on Tuesday of the failed talks.He said clear signals had been given that reviews could have taken place as regards security and guarantees.Reunification talks in Crans-Montana collapsed in the early morning hours last Friday with both sides accusing the other of being responsible for the failure.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppTake Online Privacy on a whole New levelFigLeaf Beta AppUndoYahoo Search | Search AdsStop Joint Pain.
