The Gracie Awards were presented to honorees which were previously announced on March 21, 2016 (view full list of honorees here) in recognition of their successes in the media industry.The ceremony, led by executive producer Vicangelo Bulluck and featuring a production team with a female director, female assistant director, female stage manager and an all-female camera crew, hosted honorees like Lifetime Achievement Honoree Lynda Carter, Mindy Kaling, Allison Janney, Kathie Lee Gifford and more, while presenters and additional guests in attendance included Octavia Spencer, Scott Foley, Marilu Henner, Melissa Rivers, Maureen “Mo” Langan, Andrea Navedo, Danica McKellar, Lesley-Ann Brandt and more.Highlights from the show include: • Allison Janney, after being presented her award by Octavia Spencer for her work on Mom, gave a warm-hearted speech around her admiration of the Alliance for Women in Media for recognizing her work on a show that celebrates women, stating that “women who find that getting through all of the ups and downs of life, they find it easier to get through it leaning on each other. That’s what we do as women. That’s what we should do. It makes us stronger and more powerful.” 
 • Mindy Kaling took a light-hearted approach on an issue very important: pay inequality. “For years and years, the role of a lead actress on a sitcom was to do two things: look amazing and make one-third of what my co male star makes.” She continued, “I want to be clear. I do always look amazing on the show, and no man on that show makes more money than me.” 
 • 2016 Gracies Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter received nothing short of a standing ovation when she was presented with the top honor of the evening. She touched on trailblazing women she looked up to like Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett and legendary stuntwoman Jeannie Epper, and expressed that the idea of her as a role model and “the fact that I may have inspired [young women] makes me happy.” 
 • Kathie Lee Gifford gave an acceptance speech thanking the broad audience who has accepted and supported her. “I am so grateful that I found an audience that let me be me. That let me share my ups and downs. That their heart broke when my heart broke. And they laughed at my stupid jokes and they forgave me when I made mistakes. And I cannot tell you how deeply grateful I am.” She finished by dedicating her award to her late husband Frank Gifford pointing to the sky and announcing, “This is for you, honey. You made me laugh.” 
 • Grammy Award-nominee Andra Day took to the stage for the unforgettable performance of the evening. Day brought the house down and the audience to their feet as she gave a flawless and empowering performance of her single Rise Up from her album “Cheers to the Fall.”last_img read more

Earlier the court had asked the central government to apprise it on several issues including as to how many functional detention centres are there in the state. Activist Harsh Mander filed a PIL on the plight of foreigners in detention centres. The plea alleged that they are kept in indefinite detention just because they are not Indians. The court had on April 1 expressed unhappiness over declared foreign nationals absconding and amalgamating with the local population in Assam and summoned the state’s chief secretary.last_img read more

Big play blues Urban Meyer unhappy with Buckeyes lazy defense

Ohio State’s football team won its first two games of the season, but it is far from being flawless. One flaw that has hampered OSU in its first two games is its defense allowing opposing offenses to make too many big plays, a flaw that coach Urban Meyer said has to be fixed immediately. “On defense, we need to stop giving up big plays,” Meyer said Monday at his weekly press conference. “That has to stop now.” OSU has held its first two opponents to 26 total points but has given up 664 combined yards, which has the Buckeyes ranked only 47th nationally in yards allowed per game. The biggest reason for that has been big plays. The Buckeyes have given up nine plays of more than 20 yards in two games, including seven passing plays of more than 20 yards. In those categories, the Buckeyes’ defense ranks even lower: they are tied for 84th nationally in total plays of more than 20 yards allowed, and tied for 82nd in passing plays allowed of that distance. Meyer said the Buckeyes have been allowing big plays “for a variety of reasons.” “We need to identify our pass-rushers and get some more pressure on the quarterback, which correlates perfectly with pass defense, and we’re just not very productive in those areas,” Meyer said. Meyer added that the pass defense has been “lazy” at times, and pointed to three issues that have led to the breakdowns in pass coverage that have plagued the Buckeyes thus far. “When you get beat on a big play, sometimes it’s because that guy ran by you and they beat you,” Meyer said. “Off the top of my head, I don’t think we’ve had that. It’s not guys getting beat, it’s lack of discipline, and maybe lack of toughness, maybe it’s lack of reps.” OSU cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs said the breakdowns in pass coverage are “unacceptable.” “If you’re in great coverage and they throw the ball up, they throw enough of them deep, two guys go up for the ball and sometimes one of them’s going to catch it,” Coombs said Monday. “But a guy wide open is unacceptable. It will be corrected.” Coombs explained why the problems with the Buckeyes’ pass defense are correctable. “Most of the errors that have been made have been as a result of communication breakdowns: (cornerback) to safety, safety to (cornerback), somewhere in that process,” Coombs said. “The critical piece for our kids is the follow-up process on every single play. That process is to get the call from the sideline, find out the personnel group that the offense is using, identify the formation that the offense is in, understand the coverage nuances or changes that are based on either the personnel formation or our call, and then put those things into place. Any number of areas there, there can be a disconnect.” Following Saturday’s game versus Central Florida, redshirt senior cornerback Travis Howard addressed the issues the pass defense has faced. “I feel like we have better days in us and we could have done a better job, but it’s still only the second game,” Howard said. “We have to regroup and get things together.” Sophomore linebacker Ryan Shazier said the coaches told the defense that they must improve and explained how Meyer approaches that with the team. “We can’t do that again, especially if it’s a big mistake that we’ve been practicing over and over and over again, we just can’t allow that to happen,” Shazier said. “Meyer let us know our mistakes, and he tells us that we can’t have that happen again.” If OSU does continue to allow big plays to happen, they could find themselves in a vulnerable position when they play California on Saturday at noon. California’s offense includes junior wide receiver Keenan Allen, who tied for 14th nationally in 2011 with 14 receptions of 25 yards or more, and already has two through two games this season. Coombs explained why Allen could be a major threat to their pass defense. “Any time you play a great receiver, you have to have tremendous respect for their ability and what they do well,” Coombs said. “Keenan Allen is a great route-runner, he’s got great speed … he’s got great body control when the ball is in the air, he goes and gets it. They’re going to run vertical routes, so he’s going to be a factor.” read more

Ramjattan defends illegal SARA Director

Apparently, this illegal viral is all over the place,” he said when asked to comment on the situation.Professor Thomas was Head of the State Assets Recovery Unit – which was the name of the organisation when it was operating without a legislative framework.However, in 2017, the requisite legislation was passed, prompting SARU to be renamed SARA.The SARA Act stipulates that “Within a period of not more than four months from the date of commencement of this Act, the Parliamentary Committee on appointments on the notification by the Minister shall recommend to the National Assembly a person to be appointed as Director of the SARA”.However, this was never done and Professor Thomas has remained as Head of SARA – which goes against the law.Notably, Professor Thomas was politically appointed to that post and this raises concern about the credibility and integrity of the work of that agency which is empowered to seize citizens’ assets.In fact, according to the law, the Head of SARA will be answerable to no one.One of the major concerns of stakeholders was that of SARA’s Head being bestowed with a seemingly unlimited amount of power, practically second to the President’s.SARA recently filed lawsuits against several persons including former President Bharrat Jagdeo in relation to the sale of lands at Sparendaam, popularly known as “Pradoville 2”.But Jagdeo said he is unbothered by this action since he believes it is just politics at play. read more

Amazon rainforest burning at record rate

[BBC]  Brazil’s Amazon rainforest has seen a record number of fires this year, according to new data from the country’s space research agency.The National Institute for Space Research (Inpe) said its satellite data showed an 83% increase on the same period in 2018.It comes weeks after President Jair Bolsonaro fired the head of the agency amid rows over its deforestation data.Smoke from the fires caused a blackout in the city of Sao Paulo on Monday.The daytime blackout, which lasted for about an hour, came after strong winds brought in smoke from forest fires burning in the states of Amazonas and Rondonia, more than 2,700km (1,700 miles) away.Conservationists have blamed Mr Bolsonaro, saying he has encouraged loggers and farmers to clear the land.Inpe said it had detected more than 72,000 fires between January and August – the highest number since records began in 2013. It said it had observed more than 9,500 forest fires since Thursday, mostly in the Amazon region.The satellite images showed Brazil’s most northern state, Roraima, covered in dark smoke, while neighbouring Amazonas declared an emergency over the fires.

Fourth and final inpit crusher due to start up at Cobre Panama

first_imgFirst Quantum Minerals in its second quarter 2019 results gave an update on the Cobre Panama project, where production ramped up significantly with pre-commercial copper production of 30,896 t in the quarter, on track to produce 140,000 –175,000 t of copper as previously guided for the year. The first concentrate was shipped in June which signified the commencement of concentrate shipping for the operation.Six of the eight mills were operational by quarter end with an additional mill becoming operational in Q3. The final ball mill is scheduled to be in operation early in Q4. Three of the four in-pit primary crushers are in operation with the fourth crusher in operation after the quarter end in July. The crushers allow double side dumping with the mine’s fleet of Liebherr ultraclass T284 haul trucks.The tailings management facility deposition commenced in the northern and southern sectors of the facility and will commence in the eastern sector in the third quarter.Approximately 80% of the operational workforce is now in place. Total project capital is now expected to increase by just over 6% to $6.7 billion, as a result of higher costs associated with construction completion and commissioning to further mitigate risks associated with and to accelerate the ramp-up of the large-scale project. The accelerated ramp-up has brought the anticipated commercial production forward, now expected by the end of Q3.last_img read more

Sida tuberculose et paludisme le Canada augmente sa contribution au Fonds mondial

first_imgSida, tuberculose et paludisme : le Canada augmente sa contribution au Fonds mondial Canada – Le Premier ministre Stephen Harper a annoncé mardi une hausse importante des financements canadiens au Fonds mondial de lutte contre le sida, la tuberculose et le paludisme.Le Canada a annoncé au cours du Sommet sur les objectifs du millénaire pour le développement que sa contribution au Fonds mondial de lutte contre le sida, la tuberculose et le paludisme augmenterait de 20%. Le montant de l’aide versée par le pays passera ainsi de 150 à 180 millions de dollars par année sur trois ans. Cet engagement entre dans le cadre des objectifs du millénaire, qui visent notamment à réduire de moitié la pauvreté dans le monde d’ici 5 ans. Avec la crise économique mondiale, les pays développés ont freiné leur participation et cet objectif est bien loin d’être atteint.  Le Premier ministre canadien a également profité de ce sommet pour rappeler que l’initiative visant à mobiliser des fonds gouvernementaux et privés pour lutter contre la mortalité infantile et maternelle portait ses fruits. Il a fait savoir que, d’ici la fin du sommet, il pourrait avoir recueilli 10 milliards de dollars. Mais comme M. Harper l’a rappelé, le plus important est que l’argent récolté soit bien investi. “Rendre compte des résultats sera une partie intégrante du plan. Notre cadre de responsabilisation rigoureux permettra de mesurer les progrès, de suivre les résultats et de veiller à ce que les fonds destinés à l’aide contribuent bel et bien à réduire de façon durable la mortalité maternelle et infantile”, a-t-il déclaré.Le 23 septembre 2010 à 13:21 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

3044 Reasons Why CTR is the Wrong Metric for Media Buying and

first_img· Finally, Scout Analytics research shows that some audience members are more “clicky” than others. The clicky audience not only frequently generates click-throughs but often on the same ad distorting the CTR further. This example assumes 10% of the loyal audience is 5X more clicky than the average loyal audience member. After solving a couple of simultaneous equations, the CTR of the average loyal audience is 0.177%; the clicky audience’s CTR is 0.885%; and the fly-by CTR is 0.089%. Rather than getting 8,000 target audience members to click through, the advertiser would actually only get 4,956, or 3,044 short of the expected 8,000 – a full 38% short. Click-through rate or CTR is often used to describe the advertising performance on a publisher’s site. CTR for an ad is defined as the number of clicks on an ad divided by the number of times the ad is shown (impressions), expressed as a percentage. If the ad sales team for a publisher claims a million monthly unique visitors with 4 million page views and a CTR of 0.2% (or 8,000 click-throughs), the buyer might think those click-throughs are all distributed across the million unique users to yield 8,000 target audience members. The buyer and the seller are wrong. Here’s the problem: CTR doesn’t take into account audience composition. To demonstrate the weakness of CTR to communicate performance, let’s assume a single advertiser buys the entire inventory for the month. The advertiser bought all four million page views from the one million unique to have an intended 8,000 target audience members click-through to the advertiser’s site. What skews CTR to be a poor metric of performance? Engagement. · As shown by Scout Analytics research, the advertiser’s target, the loyal audience, is usually 20-30% of the visitors who generate 70-80% of the page views. This means that the available audience for the advertiser is really 200-300,000 visitors not 1,000,000. The remaining 700,000 audience members generated from search are statistically irrelevant to the advertiser.· Scout Analytics research also finds that CTR varies by engagement with loyal audience members delivering the majority of the click-throughs, but for odd reasons, irrelevant fly-bys still generate click-throughs. These 700,000 irrelevant fly-bys typically have a much lower CTR. For this example, let’s assume their CTR at half the CTR of a loyal audience. A more relevant metric would be audience conversion rate (ACR) or the number of unique audience members that clicked through divided by the total number of loyal audience members. Looking at the above example, the publisher is actually producing 1.65% ACR (i.e., 4,956/300,000). Not only is the 1.65% a more representative of publisher and media performance, it is also has a better value proposition to the advertiser and makes ad sales more productive.last_img read more

Geologic study suggests Earths tectonic activity peaked 11 billion years ago

first_img(Phys.org) —A pair of Australian researchers studying rock samples has found evidence to suggest that the Earth’s tectonic plate activity peaked approximately 1.1 billion years ago. In their paper published in the journal Geology, Martin Van Kranendonk and Christopher Kirkland describe the results of their analysis of a multitude of rock samples from various sites around the world. Studying ancient Earth’s geochemistry © 2013 Phys.org Explore further More information: Orogenic climax of Earth: The 1.2–1.1 Ga Grenvillian superevent, Geology, First published online April 29, 2013, doi: 10.1130/G34243.1AbstractThe rate of growth of the continental crust is controversial. We present an evaluation of time-constrained analyses of oxygen isotopes in zircon grains and incompatible element (Zr, Th) concentrations in magmatic rocks to test for variations in the degree of crustal recycling through geological time. The data indicate a rise in these geochemical proxies from ca. 3.0 Ga to a statistically significant peak at 1.2–1.1 Ga during the amalgamation of supercontinent Rodinia, and a decrease thereafter. When combined with other geological and geophysical observations, the data are interpreted as a consequence of an unprecedented level of crustal recycling and sediment subduction during Rodinia assembly, arising from a “Goldilocks” (i.e., just right) combination of larger, thicker plates on a warmer Earth with more rapid continental drift relative to modern Earth. The subsequent decrease in δ18O, Zr, and Th measurements is interpreted to reflect decreasing drift rates on a cooling Earth.via Newscientist Citation: Geologic study suggests Earth’s tectonic activity peaked 1.1 billion years ago (2013, May 8) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-05-geologic-earth-tectonic-peaked-billion.html This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Journal information: Geology Scientists agree that the Earth’s tectonic plates have been shifting for at least 3 billion years, but no one really knows whether such shifting has been getting more or less active. In this new effort Kranendonk and Kirkland undertook an exhaustive study of rock samples to learn more.The two first looked at 3200 samples of rocks collected by various researchers over the years, taken from various points around the world. Specifically, they were looking for the amount of zirconium and thorium in them—both have been found to be more common in rocks that were formed during tectonically active periods. Next they looked at an additional 1200 rock samples, this time looking for oxygen isotopes, which are also known to be more common in rocks created during times of high tectonic activity.In analyzing the data obtained from studying the rocks, the researchers found evidence that suggests that tectonic activity increased from a time approximately 3 billion years ago. That activity continued to increase, they say, for 2 billion years, peaking around 1.1 billion years ago—a time during which all of the continents had merged into one supercontinent called Rodinia. Since that time, they note, it appears that tectonic activity has been slowing. This suggests that the planet has a lifespan.The rocks can’t offer any evidence to explain why there was an increase in activity or why it has been slowing after peaking, but the researchers have a theory—they believe that prior to the increase in tectonic activity, tectonic plates the world over became thicker, and likely larger. This meant collisions between plates would have been far more violent than before. As the Earth cooled off, the plates would have moved slower causing less activity overall. These new findings also suggest that at some point the Earth’s plates will stop moving altogether—though how long that might take is still a mystery.last_img read more

Outlook Tools 30 released

first_imgOutlook Tools 3.0 released by Martin Brinkmann on July 04, 2017 in Software – Last Update: July 05, 2017 – 8 commentsOutlook Tools 3.0 is the latest version of the popular Outlook management and troubleshooting tool for Microsoft Windows devices.It is the first release of the program since 2010. We reviewed Outlook Tools 2.3 back in 2010 when it was released and concluded back then that it was a handy program to have for Outlook users.Outlook Tools 3.0 is the first update of the program in over six years. It improves the compatibility of the program with newer versions of Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Windows.The last release version supported Outlook 2010 and Windows 7 by default. Outlook Tools 3.0 supports all versions of Outlook from Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2016 and Office 365. The program runs on all versions of Windows starting with Windows Vista including Windows 10. It may also be run on the server versions that match the client versions of Windows that it supports.Outlook Tools 3.0The main focus of development was to improve the program’s compatibility with all versions of Outlook and Windows released after the release of Outlook Tools 2.3 back in 2010.The new version of the program ships with additional features besides that:The general tab — the tab the program displays on start — lists Outlook installation information now. This includes the Outlook version, build number and data, Office installation type, Office and Windows bitness level.Folder Paths tab that lists common folder paths used by Microsoft Outlook.Support Guides tab which links to various Outlook support articles on the developer website.More Tools tab with links to free and paid Outlook add-ins and tools.The core functionality of the application has not changed however.It provides you with quick access to Outlook settings and the data folders, as well as several tools that are built in. This includes a tool to unblock attachment types that Outlook blocks by default (similarly to Attachment Unblocker which we reviewed back in 2010).You may also use Outlook Tools to run Outlook with command line parameters. While you can do so directly from the command line or batch files as well, the built-in option is just a click away and does not require any form of typing. Each switch that is supported is explained when you hover the mouse cursor over it.Another handy feature is the ability to click most recently used (MRU) lists that are maintained. This is also just a click away.VerdictOutlook Tools 3.0 is a welcome release that must have come as a surprise to many considering that the release before that dated back to the year 2010.The new version improves compatibility with all recent versions of Outlook and Windows, and is a must have upgrade therefore for any user of the application.Outlook users on Windows may also want to keep the program in reach, as it may be useful at times to control Outlook or troubleshoot it.Now You: Which email software or service do you use predominantly? Summary12345 Author Rating3 based on 4 votes Software Name Outlook Tools 3.0Operating System WindowsSoftware Category EmailLanding Page https://www.howto-outlook.com/products/outlooktools.htm Advertisementlast_img read more
