Historic Law on Violence Against Women Goes into Effect September 12

Rabat – September 12, 2018, is a date to remember as Moroccan courts will officially implement Law 103-13 on gender-based discrimination.Six months after its publication in the official gazette in February, the law on the elimination of violence against women will go into effect, providing women the ability to file complaints of sexual harassment and giving severe punishment to harassers.The law will give prison sentences ranging from one to six months for people who sexually harass in public spaces, by use of words, acts or signals of a sexual nature for sexual purposes. The harassers will also be fined from MAD 2,000 to 10,000.Perpetrators of cybercrime, including broadcasting or disseminating a combination of false allegations, will face one to three years in prison and a fine ranging from MAD 1,000 to 20,000 if found guilty.The law will also include the establishment of a regional committee for female victims of violence at the level of the judicial district of each court of appeal.Moroccan women have expressed positive feelings about the law, which defines any act of violence and harassment as a crime.The Association Tahadi for Equality and Citizenship (ATEC) told Morocco World News it was satisfied and positive over the decision to implement the law.“12 September 2018 is a historic day by all standards for Moroccan women,” the statement said.While many see the decision to implement the law is a big step for women, some believe more work should be done yet.Bouchra Abdou, an activist, feminist, and president of ATEC told Morocco World News that women’ associations will ask for more explanations and details of the law.For the activist, the implications of the law are still vague; while the law was announced in the official gazette, it’s full text has not been published yet. Abdou noted that women do not know exactly what they should do if they are harassed.Minister of Solidarity, Women, and Family Bassima Hakkaoui said that it took the government six years of consultation and public debate to implement the law.According to the official, the law is based on four aspects of justice, according to international standards: preventive, protective, restorative, and solidarity.Void for vagueness?“Do we need witnesses for the law to be implemented against a harasser? We still don’t have a complete idea about how this law is going to work,” Abdou said.For Stephanie Willman Bordat, international human rights lawyer, the struggle does not end here. Asked if she is positive about the law, the human rights activist said that “the law is not made to be implemented,” but to amend the current law. Bordat told Morocco World News today how the law has criminalized public harassment.“What the law basically did is create a couple of new crimes or it increased the prison time for the crimes that already existed. The problem is that for those to be implemented, the law has to include items related to the reporting and investigation and prosecution. In other words, to be implemented, the law has to put into place the implementing mechanisms.”According to the activist, the law should also facilitate the reporting procedure for women wishing to file complaints of gender-based discrimination.“It has to put systems and procedures for police to investigate, and it has to put in place procedures for prosecution to prosecute. And the law does not do anything like that. It says sexual harassment is a crime, but if you go to the police to say that ‘this guy was harassing me,’ there is no clarity in the law about what the police officer is supposed to do and about how they do the interview and investigation.”She added that law enforcement does not have the power to do their job “if they don’t have the obligation that they have to do that job.”‘The law is so bad’Commenting on the provisions against domestic violence, the activist said that the issue “was a crime before; that is nothing new. Rape and sexual assault were also crimes before.” The activist also pinpointed the fact women do not file complaints against violence. Bordat said that only 3 percent of women who suffer it report rape.“The law does not change anything regarding rape crimes.” She also emphasized that a “response from law enforcement is necessary: otherwise, why would women go and report against those crimes?”The lawyer also criticized the lack of intervention of law enforcement in certain cases, like domestic violence. Bordat said that for police to intervene, there must be imminent threat of death. “For police to go to a private home to investigate a domestic dispute, it has to be an imminent threat of death; [a] prosecutor can’t arrest abusers unless women bring a medical certificate of 20 days of incapacitation … None of that changed.”Bordat also addressed a message to women, recognizing that “there is still a long road ahead of us…. It is going to require ongoing advocacy. The law is so bad.”She added that concerned parties should monitor the law and how it is going to be implemented. Sensitization campaignATEC will launch a campaign to raise awareness on the danger of harassment.“The campaign includes direct sensitization meetings with citizens,” ATEC’s statement added.The campaign aims also to explain the law and its provisions in simple language for citizens. The center will also provide citizens with brochures “carefully prepared to be accessible to all women, and posters designed for the same purpose will be featured in the city of Casablanca.”Tahadi plans to launch an online campaign, sending audio messages from Moroccan activists, authors, and citizens to raise awareness against harassment and to call on women to take the initiative to “quickly submit complaints against harassers.”In the audio clips Morocco World News obtained of human rights activists, feminists, and public figures, the primary message was to ask women to take a firm position against harassment and to break their silence to fight it.The continuation of a long struggleOne woman already started to say no to violence. On September 6, a Moroccan woman in Casablanca filed complaints against three men for sexual harassment.The law on violence against women was originally set to take effect in August, but was delayed until today for unknown reasons.The law comes after widely-publicized cases of rape, harassment, and violence caused outrage among Moroccan citizens.The latest case to receive wide attention was Khadija’s.The 17-year-old said she was kidnapped and raped by more than 12 men for two months. Her alleged rapists also tattooed her body against her will, she said, writing their names on her skin.A similar case caused outrage in Casablanca last year when a group of teanagers physically harassed a young woman on a moving bus while other passengers did nothing. read more

32 Magnitude Earthquake Rocks Moroccos Al Hoceima

Rabat – An earthquake struck the northern edge of the Rif mountains overnight, rocking the city of Al Hoceima. The epicenter of the quake was centered in the Sidi Boutmim area and affected a 25-kilometer area, according to news outlets. Al Hoceima sits near a major tectonic plate boundary separating the African and Eurasian plates, which makes it a vulnerable spot for earthquakes.In 2004, one of the deadliest earthquakes to hit Morocco occurred near Ait Kamra in the Al Hoceima province. The earthquake leveled nearly 2,600 houses and killed approximately 630 people. Read Also: Magnitude 3.2 Earthquake Shakes Morocco’s MeknesLast year, earthquakes struck the area twice in one month. A 4.0 earthquake struck the Al Hoceima province at the beginning of November, and a 3.8 quake hit neighboring Driouch province at the end of the month. There have been no reported deaths or significant damage from yesterday’s earthquake.However, a study conducted by researchers indicated that Al Hoceima might not always be so lucky. The study determined that “a significant percentage of the buildings of Al Hoceima have a high seismic vulnerability,” meaning that the city could potentially be victim to another tragedy like the 2004 earthquake unless people take action to improve buildings. read more

Concerns raised over lack of progress in OGP action plan

The OGP tracker also reveals that no progress at all has been made on key commitments under the themes of Health and Education, dealing with pressing issues facing the public including combating Chronic Kidney Disease and ensuring transparency and impartiality in the process of teacher recruitment. Similarly, only very limited procedural milestones have been completed under the theme of Environment, which is pertinent in light of the structural weaknesses recently exposed in environment protection and disaster management.TISL fears that in the absence of the political will to implement the National Action Plan, Sri Lanka will lose an opportunity for meaningful engagement with the Open Government Partnership, which would adversely impact both public service delivery and consultative policy making processes. Of the 17 completed milestones, 8 fall under the commitment to enact and implement the Right to Information Act, while little or no progress has been made on other commitments falling under the themes of Health, Education, Information & Communication Technology, Environment, Local Government, Women and Corruption. Speaking on the non-implementation of the National Action Plan, TISL’s Executive Director Asoka Obeysekere said “we are glad to see the progress in RTI implementation, however this highlights that progress is very concentrated and the vast majority of themes lack bona fide commitment and leadership. The government should take steps to address these shortcomings ahead of the first independent review of OGP commitments which commences in September 2017”. Transparency International Sri Lanka (TISL) is concerned over the state’s lack of progress in implementing the Open Government Partnership (OGP) National Action Plan, which consists of 116 milestones. These milestones lay out a bold policy and service delivery framework for the government, covering themes ranging from Health & Education to the Right to Information Act, with responsible state agencies and deadlines for each.Information gathered from the OGP tracker on www.tisrilanka.org/ogp, an initiative undertaken by TISL together with the coalition of civil society organisations monitoring the implementation of the National Action Plan, reveals that of the 89 milestones which have commenced, the deadlines for achieving 32 milestones have lapsed, 25 are stalled and 15 are in progress while only 17 milestones have been completed as of May 31, 2017. Obeysekere added “Yahapalanaya and the OGP commitments go hand in hand. Implementation of the National Action Plan, through achieving its 116 milestones, is instrumental for the government to fulfill its good governance mandate – it provides a similar format to the 100 day program for the public to track delivery. At present the government does not even pay it lip service in public”.The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is the main agency overseeing the implementation of the OGP National Action Plan. TISL calls on the newly appointed Minister and State Minister of Foreign Affairs to treat OGP delivery as a matter of priority. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Simcoe couple completes first province in crosscountry trek

A Simcoe couple that is hiking across Canada has completed the first province in their journey.Sonya Richmond and Sean Morton are on a three-year trek across the country, travelling along Canada’s 24,000-kilometre Great Trail. Called Come Walk With Us, the trek is meant to inspire people to get outdoors, connect with nature and give birding a try.They held a kickoff event in Newfoundland during the last week of May, and took their first steps of the journey on June 1.Nature Newfoundland set up a talk at Memorial University of Newfoundland to mark the beginning of the couple’s adventure. About 20 people walked the first five kilometres with Richmond and Morton.They were in Newfoundland for 49 days, of which 39 were spent hiking. So far, they have covered 890 kilometres of the trail.Richmond and Morton are behind their schedule.“I think that’s mostly because we’ve been stopping, which has been good,” Richmond said in a phone call this week. “We have no regrets but we’re about two weeks behind.”He said the couple has mean at lot of ATV riders.“They were really nice to us,” said Richmond.“A lot of them checked on us to make sure we were OK; they were offering us food and water.”Newfoundland provided a lot of diversity for the couple. On the province’s east coast where they began, they were walking along the Atlantic and saw many seabirds and some icebergs. The centre of the province featured wetlands, small lakes and then a vast open landscape. And the west coast presented a collection of mountains and sandy beaches.One thing they have learned along the way is that the local residents are more reliable than following directions on their cellphones, said Richmond.“A lot of the information online was outdated or not very accurate,” she said. “We learned pretty early that asking local people where the next spot to get groceries was is much more reliable.”Richmond said she and Morton are looking forward to next hiking across Nova Scotia.The trip can be followed online on the Come Walk With Us website and social media pages. Donations can be made on the couple’s website or directly to Bird Studies Canada.They plan to return to Norfolk for a Christmas visit. astaylor@postmedia.com A map of Canada’s Great Trail along with the timeline the couple plans to follow.

Nigeria Wildly Celebrates African Cup Soccer Victory

For the last 15 years, Nigeria has wallowed in soccer mediocrity — an ignoble plight for the most populous country on a continent that covets the sport. That changed Sunday when the Super Eagles won the Africa Cup of Nations, defeating Burkina Faso, 1-0.The win touched off an enormous celebration in Lagos, where thousands of delirious fans had gathered to watch the final moments of the tournament at Teslim Balogun Stadium.“We went there, we conquered,” a man who called himself Baba Daniel said to the Associated Press. “We fly; we are an eagle.”Once, Nigeria was a soccer stalwart. However, it turned quickly and badly for the Super Eagles. They have gone 13 years without a victory in the World Cup. It did not even qualify for the 2006 tournament. It was so bad that Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan said he would not allow his country’s national teams to compete because of their substandard results.But FIFA, the sport’s governing body, said it would ban the team over political interference, and Jonathan acquiesced just before the deadline. Then there was a quartet of federation officials charged with corruption after allegations they embezzled money from the team’s tournament funds in South Africa. In short, it was a mess.All that made the win Sunday that much more significant.“President Jonathan urges all Nigerians to imbibe the positive lessons of the Super Eagles’ success because the fulfillment of the country’s immense potentials for greatness will be more speedily attained if more Nigerians resolve to emulate the team’s exemplary unity,” Jonathan said in a statement as Nigeria captured its third African Cup of Nations.“I don’t know how to just express myself,” Daniel said to the AP, “but I’m so flabbergasted. I’m so happy.”The win was a reprieve, if only briefly, from that country’s struggles through a bloody Islamic insurgency, debilitating poverty, sparse electricity and other spirit-stifling challenges.“I’m a proud Nigerian,” fan Cynthia Ejimnkeonye said to the AP. “I love this country with my last blood.” read more

201516 NBA Preview The Wizards And The Wasteland Of 500

There was a time when Ramon Sessions could shoot, pass and score well enough to offset some of his incompetence on defense. Sadly, those days are long gone. CARMELO calls for Sessions to not only play ruinous defense, but also to significantly hurt his team on offense when in the game. The result is a negative wins above replacement projection, drifting toward zero (presumably when teams realize how awful Sessions is). It wasn’t long ago that Nene was one of the game’s premier big men. That time is over. He never could stay healthy, even in his prime, so the relatively low number of minutes CARMELO projects for Nene isn’t a surprise. But his lack of per-minute offensive effectiveness is a recent development, fueled in part by drastic downgrades in shooting efficiency and foul-drawing, to go with worsening rates of offensive rebounding and turnovers. What started as a slightly negative trend upon his arrival in Washington has become a legitimate concern, and CARMELO thinks 2015-16 will be the final season in which Nene’s defensive skills outweigh his disintegrating offense. We’re inaugurating our NBA player projection system, CARMELO, with 2015-16 season previews for every team in the league. Check out the teams we’ve already previewed here. Learn more about CARMELO here. Washington certainly has the top-end young talent to someday move beyond .500 land. Our long-term forecast1Judging from CARMELO-projected wins above replacement over the next six seasons. ranks three Wizards among the top 100 NBA players in projected future value: John Wall (10th), Bradley Beal (20th) and Otto Porter Jr. (77th). But for now, the Wiz are biding their time in the middle of the NBA pack — and that may not be as bad a strategy as it once seemed, particularly in the perennially weak Eastern Conference.You can find projections for all the Wizards (and the rest of the NBA) in our interactive, but here’s what CARMELO thinks about Washington’s key players in 2015-16: For two years running, the Washington Wizards have epitomized a “solid team,” averaging 45 wins with a pair of second-round playoff exits. It used to be argued — including by yours truly — that such status was undesirable, since those kinds of teams seldom find a springboard to greater things. In fact, teams stuck around .500 get doubly punished in the NBA: They have little chance of winning a title, yet are also unlikely to acquire a franchise player in the draft.But the unexpected rise of clubs such as the Atlanta Hawks, who last season won 60 games after years spent posting near-.500 records, gives hope to others trying to build from the middle. And for what it’s worth, FiveThirtyEight’s CARMELO thinks the middle is exactly where the Wizards will be again. (I do mean “exactly,” too — our projections call for them to finish 41-41 in 2015-16.) Having moved past the knee injury that cost him half the 2012-13 season, John Wall keeps getting better and better. Three years ago, the improvement was on offense; seemingly all at once, Wall boosted his assist rate, slashed his turnovers and started shooting more efficiently, all despite carrying a bigger offensive burden. Then, last season, Wall transformed into one of the league’s best defensive point guards, without sacrificing his offensive output. As a result, CARMELO thinks Wall will be a top 10 NBA player over the next six seasons — though it also bears mentioning that his top comps tended to produce only a few more great seasons before entering long and steady declines. Read more:All our NBA player projectionsAll our 2015-16 NBA Previews The 3-and-D wing is an underrated species of NBA player — or at least it was until very recently. But even among that group, Jared Dudley is often overlooked. Sure, Dudley seldom scores, shoots almost nothing but jumpers, doesn’t rebound and wasn’t obviously good on defense until last season (his only campaign spent with the defensive-minded Bucks). But CARMELO thinks those solid defensive metrics were mostly legit, which gives Dudley real 3-and-D value when combined with his tendency to let fly from downtown on offense. Then again, CARMELO also links Dudley to a bunch of guys whose offensive skills eroded not long after they turned 30. CARMELO giveth, and CARMELO taketh away. After a breakout 2014-15 campaign, what can Bradley Beal do for an encore? Quite a bit, if you ask CARMELO. Our projections see Beal continuing to develop his offensive game, cranking out a steady stream of 5-WAR seasons2For reference’s sake, think of a player roughly as valuable as Greg Monroe, Ty Lawson or Luol Deng was last season. for the foreseeable future. What might keep Beal from reaching the truly elite class of wings, though, is his defense — as was the case with many of his top comparables, Beal hasn’t convinced CARMELO that he can ever be much more than an average contributor at that end of the court. Somewhat quietly, Marcin Gortat has ranked among the NBA’s top 10 or so centers over the past five seasons. What’s driving his value? Mainly it’s an unusual combination of durability, rebounding, defense and efficient finishing around the basket. But it’s no coincidence that many of his comps are relics of a bygone age of big men — Gortat plays the way most centers did a generation ago. And at age 31, he’s reached the stage of his career at which those players started to deteriorate. Don’t be surprised if Washington needs to search for Gortat’s successor soon. It’s to Kris Humphries’s credit that he turned around what had been a sub-replacement-level career through six NBA seasons and has become a functional NBA player in the five years since. He has plenty of limitations — particularly on offense — and his presence as one of Washington’s key bench players speaks volumes about the Wizards’ overall lack of depth, but he can be counted on to grab rebounds, play decent defense and stretch the floor a little with the threat of mid-range jumpers. After a completely dreadful rookie season in 2013-14, Otto Porter Jr. was one of the NBA’s most-improved players last season. CARMELO thinks he can build on those gains and maintain an above-average level of play for many years to come, even if he never really provides much in the way of scoring punch. Porter’s a great argument for why versatility is so important in a wing prospect: When the ability to create shots doesn’t translate to the pros, a well-rounded game can provide a nice fallback. In Porter’s case, he does enough positive things on defense and the glass to compensate for a microscopic assist percentage and comparatively small usage rate. read more

High churn and trouble finding new recruits have left the Central Bank

first_img 19 Comments Take me to Fora Short URL Share Tweet Email5 By Fora Staff High ‘churn’ and trouble finding new recruits have left the Central Bank short on staff The financial regulator is likely to fall well short on its recruitment targets. http://jrnl.ie/3447881 Jun 18th 2017, 7:30 AM THE CENTRAL BANK says a high “churn” rate among its employees and trouble in recruiting outside staff means it will likely fall well short of its recruitment targets for the year.The regulator, which recently moved into new offices in Dublin’s docklands, had planned to bolster its ranks by 200 staff in 2017, however it only managed to add the equivalent of five full-time employees in the first three months of the year.According to minutes from the Central Bank’s committee meeting in late April, it was now struggling to find extra staff in a “challenging recruitment environment”.At the end of last year, there were just under 1,600 full-time equivalent staff on the regulator’s books – up from 1,364 in 2014.Central Bank human resources director Liz Joyce told the committee that 149 advertised roles were filled at the organisation during the first quarter.However more than half of the roles were internal hires – creating further vacancies at the regulator.Meanwhile, the staff turnover rate at the Central Bank currently stands at 7%, with the level of “churn” leading to only a small net increase in the workforce.The meeting minutes noted it was “not feasible to expect all vacancies would be filled this year” and that a strategy has been developed to help boost staff numbers at the Central Bank. The Central Bank’s new office on North Wall Quay Source: Leah Farrell/RollingNews.ieThe minutes also revealed that roughly 70 staff are on long-term leave from the organisation.A spokeswoman for the Central Bank told Fora that as of the end of May, there has been a net increase of 20 full-time staff.Ongoing issueOver the past several years, the Central Bank has lost a number of key staff, including deputy governor Stefan Gerlach, who left in 2015, head of banking Fiona Muldoon, who has since joined insurance firm FBD, and head of enforcement Peter Oakes.Earlier this year, deputy governor for financial regulation Cyril Roux also resigned from his role to take up a new position in the private sector. Former governor Patrick Honohan announced his early retirement in 2015. Cyril Roux Source: Mark Stedman/RollingNews.ieLast year, Roux said that the recovery in the financial sector has increased the pressure on the Central Bank to retain its key staff.He said the gap between the wages available to someone in the private sector and those working for the bank has grown. The average salary at the Central Bank was €61,020 last year, down from €62,345 in 2013.In recent years, the Central Bank has launched initiatives to retain key staff and offered payments to staff to keep them at the organisation.The Dáil Public Accounts Committee heard last year that nearly €450,000 was given to key staff to convince them to stay.

Une étude mondiale pour évaluer la pollution sonore des océans

first_imgUne étude mondiale pour évaluer la pollution sonore des océansRéunis début septembre à Paris, des biologistes marins, des professionnels de la mer et des représentants de l’Unesco vont fixer les modalités de l’Expérience internationale de l’océan tranquille. Un programme d’étude sur 10 ans pour évaluer l’impact de la pollution sonore humaine sur les créatures marines… et envisager des solutions.Les scientifiques savent depuis peu que, dans l’océan, les pollutions sonores d’origine humaine, d’une large gamme de longueurs d’ondes recouvrant celle utilisée par les animaux marins, peuvent gravement perturber ces derniers. Mais, les observations manquent de données en nombre statistiquement utilisable, d’informations suffisantes sur le nombre et l’identité des espèces impactées, sur l’effet physique précis, sur les seuils de tolérance, sur les sources sonores en cause dans chaque cas (chantiers de construction, bateaux, forage, sonars, …). Ainsi, les chercheurs ne peuvent évaluer efficacement l’impact sur l’écosystème océanique, ni les réponses adaptatives des créatures concernées, et encore moins, donc, envisager les mesures à prendre.À lire aussiUn plongeur se fait attaquer par un lion de merC’est pourquoi le Comité scientifique de recherche océanique (Scor), le Partenariat pour l’observation de l’océan mondial (Pogo) et l’Unesco ont lancé l’Expérience internationale de l’océan tranquille (IQOE, en anglais), un programme scientifique sur 10 ans pour répondre à ces questions, en créant pour ce faire de nouveaux outils et dispositifs de mesure et d’évaluation. C’est à Paris que s’est tenue la première réunion visant à organiser ce vaste projet.Au nombre des connaissances acquises ces dernières années lors de précédentes études sur les nuisances sonores infligées au milieu marin, on peut citer quelques exemples : le trafic maritime (qui double tous les 20 ans) génère un bruit de fond qui peut couvrir les sons émis par les baleines, et inciter celles-ci à se taire. De même, les baleines à bec sont perturbées par les sonars artificiels, qu’elles confondent avec les communications sonores des orques, leurs prédateurs. Par ailleurs, ces sondeurs acoustiques peuvent provoquer l’échouage de nombreux cétacés.Le 2 septembre 2011 à 19:41 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

The VR Market is Exploding But Will Anybody Take the Bait

first_img The Game Developer’s Conference (GDC) has been promoting the rise of products in the VR space, having started a separate conference called VRDC that runs in September. At GDC this past week in San Francisco, the expo floor, while packed with the usual game demos and booths from around the industry, was also overrun with VR-based products. VR has barely breached the consumer market yet, but there were dozens of booths that were showing off alternative technologies. There were multiple examples of room-scale VR, along with controllers and even clothing that purports to heighten the immersive experience that VR supposedly gives users.On Wednesday, which signaled the opening of the show floor, I went in knowing that this was going to be a running pattern. I had been receiving press emails in the weeks leading up to the conference from all the companies that wanted to make their exhibit stand out. I noticed immediately that many of the emails I received were not from games but from alternate VR controllers. Instead of the joysticks that come with the HTC Vive or simply using any number of familiar controllers, you can wear gloves that allow you to interact in VR or a vest that gives you additional sensations in game combat scenarios. You can get a pair of boots that claim to reduce motion sickness or wear a backpack that allows you to traverse a room.This isn’t a full rundown of the VR selection. I didn’t even have time to check out Facebook’s Oculus booth, which combined the two brands for one of the first times publicly. What I was looking out for were the off-brand efforts; the small companies with unrecognizable names in the mainstream tech industry that wanted to break into VR. We already have a number of headsets to choose from–the Vive, the Rift, the PSVR, the Daydream, the Cardboard–but what about those weird gloves I mentioned?I ran across two booths that were experimenting with glove technology. One was Bend Labs, which created bendable sensors that can be used to track finger movements. It originally developed the technology for the medical space but were highlighting how you can use gloves outfitted with those sensors to pick up objects in VR. I have small hands, so the demo gloves were a little big for me, and therefore didn’t respond exactly to my movements. Having the ability to pick up objects in VR–which in this demo was a variety of blocks, guns, and swords–is also not an exact science since you can’t fully feel the object in your hand. Although, if you want to feel more involved in your virtual reality experience, being able to swat things with your hand or pick things up definitely adds another level.Courtesy CaptogloveCaptoGlove, which had a booth nearby, were further along in their VR glove experiment. While Bend Labs’ demo was very much a prototype, CaptoGlove says it’s on the way to a Kickstarter next week and have already started production on units. Its website touts it as the “first immediately usable virtual reality wearable gaming motion controller,” but it has use outside VR. With its software, a user can create hand controls for almost any PC game (one GDC attendee was using the glove to play Left 4 Dead 2 and literally held their hand in the shape of a gun). It’s expected to retail fully at around $250, so I’m expecting this modern Power Glove might appeal to gamers with a little extra cash, but little elsewhere.The market for alternate VR controllers and tech is just too small at this point to estimate if any will be profitable. It’s still unclear if the basic VR industry, with its big-name headsets–has longevity. Developers are working to expand the VR/AR industry, and most think it’s here to stay, according to the 2016 VRDC Innovation Report, but there are concerns, mainly about how to cross the motion sickness barrier and with pricing. Pricing is an especially tough nut to crack since it could cost up to $2,000 to have a working HTC Vive in your home.“If a family of four has to shell out $4,000 to play one game together, you’re not going to get widespread adoption,” one respondent noted in the survey.Sales numbers haven’t been too bad, even if they’ve been a little lackluster. PlayStation VR was on track to hit their goal of one million headsets sold after launching towards the end of 2016. It’s one of the most accessible headsets on the market since all you need is to plug it into a PS4 you might already own. Rift and Vive numbers are significantly lower due to them being niche PC peripherals rather than a console plug-in.So the VR market isn’t doing terribly in its first couple years, but how much people would be willing to spend on even more peripherals and modules remains to be seen, especially with little content to back it up. There were products on the show floor with even more niche appeal than alternative controllers. Woojer has created a haptic, vibration-heavy vest that supposedly works to enhance audio experiences, including those in games. If you get shot in-game, for example, the vest will vibrate in the area where you were shot. It mimics the sensation of being at a concert; how your body buzzes when near a speaker. I’m not an audiophile, so I’m not sure what people of that ilk would get out of this product, but it seems to have little value outside of people who want to be at a concert all the time and will spend hundreds of dollars to get there.Courtesy WoojerBut why would you spend any money on these things? Frankly, I’m not sure. The VR industry is exploding, with multiple headsets to choose from in a number of different price points. GDC’s expo proved that not only are people working to cash in on this market but are willing to try any method to do so.In terms of the consumer gamer market, it’s a large unknown. For other industries, there might be some hope. Room-scale VR technologies–or ones that don’t require so many trippable wires–are appealing to people in the medical field, for instance. Sixsense’s STEM System uses electromagnetic technology to produce a full-body representation in VR, which has been used to test demonstrations on medical procedures. Hyperverse’s room-scale VR tech includes a heavy backpack that contains the computer and the camera you’d need to hook up to sensors that can be spread across a ceiling, but it might be on the verge of creating something to replace laser tag.There’s a lot of unknowns in VR. Who knows if any of these products will sell, or if they’d make a dent at all. My theory is that a lot of them are too niche and specific to be commercially viable, with many moving into the realm of the unnecessary. With questions about VR mostly surrounding price, it seems even stranger that people would work to create even more things for customers to purchase.What I can say from my time at GDC though is that there is no shortage of people who are working to make VR viable in the long term or people who want to explore it. Even if their products end up having little impact, they can say they experimented with it.

CEA Arvind Subramanium Asks RBI to Cut Rate to Spur Investment Drive

first_imgChief Economic Advisor (CEA) Arvind Subramanian has called for a rate cut that would boost investments to achieve the potential growth rate of 7-8%.Explaining the decline in inflation statistics, Subramanian stressed the need for the central bank to cut interest rates even before their next meeting scheduled for February 3, 2015.RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan has repeatedly said that a rate cut would be in avail, if the fight against inflation continues to produce expected results. ReutersThe CEA noted that the private sector is saddled with high debt and therefore it is imperative to public investment to help shore up business climate in India.To keep inflation under control, the RBI has held rates at 8% since the year began. The wholesale price index declined to a five-and-a-half-year low of zero percentage a week ago.The second-quarter GDP growth for Asia’s third largest economy has slowed down to ₹14.39 lakh crore, or 5.3% year-on-year. The first-quarter witnessed 5.7%, signalling revival.Subramanium added it would be a challenge to restrict the fiscal deficit to 4.1%. He hinted at an expenditure cut in the range of ₹60,000 to ₹80,000 crore to keep the deficit under control, reports Livemint.The CEA expects India to post a growth rate of 5.5% in the current fiscal year, up from 4.7% last year, on the back of inflation control and better current account deficit management.last_img read more

Google Photos Share Your Library explained

first_imgGoogle Photos: Share Your Library explained by Martin Brinkmann on June 29, 2017 in Companies, Google – Last Update: January 04, 2018 – 1 commentGoogle Photos new Share Your Library feature is currently being rolled out to Google Photos on the Web and mobile devices.Share Your Library is a new feature of Google Photos that Google revealed earlier this year during the Google I/O conference. It is designed to give users of Google Photos an option to share part of their photo library with another person automatically.The example that Google gives is that of a couple that wants to share photos of their daughter with each other automatically. Instead of having to share photos manually each time they are captured, or using shared folders for that, it is now possible to automate the process even further.We use the Android version of Share Your Library to explain the functionality. The general functionality of the feature is identical on all supported platforms.Google Photos: Share Your LibrarySelect the menu icon and then Share your library in the Google Photos application on Android to get started. Please note that the feature is rolled out gradually to all users, and that it may not be yet available on your device.Google Photos displays a welcome screen when you open it. It explains what Share your library does, and provides you with a link to a support page that provides you with detailed instructions on setting it up.Give someone access to all of your photos, or just some of them, on an ongoing basis.You are asked to pick a contact that you want to share the library with. Please note that Share your library is limited to one person right now. This means that you cannot use the feature to automatically share part of or all of your library with multiple recipients, for instance both of your parents or multiple siblings.You may pick one of the available contacts, or add a Google Account email address manually instead.Options to customize the sharing are displayed on the next page. You may restrict sharing in the following ways:Restrict by date — This enables you to set a starting date for the sharing. If you don’t pick one, all photos are shared.Restrict by photos — This filter enables you to restrict the sharing to specific face groups, e.g. photos of your daughter or son. This is restricted to faces, which means that you cannot use it to restrict other kinds of photos.Google notes that restrict by photos is not perfect. This means that photos may be shared that don’t belong to the selected face group. A tap on send invitation informs the recipient. The partner may do the same, but this is optional.To accept an invitation directly in the photos application, select Menu > Invitation from “name”, and select accept.If you don’t want to interact with someone on Google Photos, you may block them. This is done by opening a sharing album, and tappingp on More > Sharing options. There you need to select More > Block person next to the person’s name to add the restriction.Once a person is blocked, you won’t be able to see each other’s photos, videos, or comments in Google Photos. If you are the owner of an album, and you block a contributor, any content added by them is removed. If you are a contributor and block an owner, all of your content is removed from the album.Note that you will block that person on other Google services, Google+ for instance, as well.Closing WordsShare your library is an optional feature of Google Photos. It may speed up the sharing of some or all photos captured with a device to one contact. While some may find this sufficient, may would probably like options to share with multiple contacts instead.Since the feature is completely optional, you can still share using built-in ways that were there before. Create a shared album for instance, or share individual photos instead.Now You: What is your take on the share your library feature of Google Photos?SummaryArticle NameGoogle Photos: Share Your Library explainedDescriptionGoogle Photos new Share Your Library feature is currently being rolled out to Google Photos on the Web and mobile devices.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
