first_imgA delegation from the Pacific Council on International Policy traveled to Myanmar last week for high level discussions with individuals central to the peace process in that country, including opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.The group – led by former U.S. Secretary of Commerce Mickey Kantor, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom Robert H. Tuttle, and Pacific Council President and CEO Dr. Jerrold D. Green – also met with leaders in government, business, and the nonprofit sector.The delegation included Dr. Irwin Jacobs, co-founder of Qualcomm, Inc.; Mr. William H. Neukom , former CEO of the San Francisco Giants and current President and CEO of the World Justice Project; and Mr. Scott Olivet, former Chairman of Oakley, Inc. During visits to Yangon and Naypyidaw, delegates sought to understand the pace and extent of current reforms and the effect of existing international sanctions.“We are deeply interested in Myanmar’s path as it transitions toward democracy,” said Dr. Green. “The challenges ahead are enormous, and international partners can play an important role in supporting the delicate process.”President Barack Obama visited Myanmar in late November, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to do so, and delegation leaders called his trip a “significant good faith gesture.” Still, as violence continues in the northern state of Kachin, Suu Kyi cautioned delegates against overestimating the reforms initiated by Myanmar’s government thus far. The peace process will be gradual, she noted, and the country has a long way to go before the world should consider it a functioning democracy.During the week-long visit, delegates also met with U “Thura” Shwe Mann , the speaker of the lower house of Parliament, and with U Than Nyein, the Governor of Myanmar’s Central Bank. Ambassador Derek Mitchell, the first U.S. ambassador to the country since 1990, hosted the group for a discussion of recent changes in the U.S. government’s level of engagement with Myanmar.“The Pacific Council was pleased to be able to hear and share ideas with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Ambassador Mitchell, and others during our visit,” said Dr. Green. “We look forward to continuing our exchange and to serving as ongoing partners in this process.”The Pacific Council on International Policy, headquartered in Los Angeles, is the leading international affairs organization on the west coast of the United States. The Council is governed by a Board of Directors chaired by the Honorable Mickey Kantor and Ambassador Robert H. Tuttle. Dr. Jerrold D. Green serves as President and CEO.Source:PR Newswirelast_img read more


Speaking here the High Commissioner noted that the past year has been particularly transformative and has witnessed many dynamic developments in the strong, friendly and time-tested bilateral relations. The High Commissioner noted that economic ties are at the core of India’s renewed engagement with the world.“With a strong demographic dividend, a growing entrepreneurial ecosystem and a large domestic market, the time is right for India’s economy to soar. As the Indian nation moves forward, it invites its neighbours to be part of a collective growth story, especially its close neighbor Sri Lanka. India hopes that Sri Lankan businesses will take advantage of their proximity to India,” he said. The High Commission of India and the Indian expatriate community in Sri Lanka celebrated the 70th Independence Day of India today at India House in Colombo. On development cooperation with Sri Lanka, High Commissioner highlighted that India has committed over US$ 2.6 billion in development assistance to Sri Lanka, with over US$ 435 million in outright grants. The flagship housing project being funded by India is progressing at an impressive speed with over 45,000 houses constructed till date. The third phase, to construct 4,000 houses in the Central and Uva Provinces through an innovative community-driven approach, was launched in the last week of April 2016.The High Commissioner also referred to the innovative Emergency Ambulance Service, funded by Government of India, which was flagged off by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe last month. Being launched, in the first instance, in Southern and Western provinces of Sri Lanka, under an Indian grant assistance of US$ 7.55 million, this service is being provided to patients free of charge.He also spoke about the close people-to-people contact between India and Sri Lanka, which is epitomized by huge tourist exchanges. Connectivity between both countries is already exceptional and discussions are under way to develop Palaly airport as a regional hub. (Colombo Gazette) India says it looks forward to taking its economic engagement with Sri Lanka to the next level by elevating the FTA to include areas such as investment, services and technology cooperation.The Indian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka Y. K. Sinha said that the motivated and mischievous campaign of disinformation against the agreement needs to be countered by genuine debate and discussion among stakeholders in Sri Lanka. read more


After leading Brock to an appearance at the U SPORTS National Championships while serving as interim head coach, Marty Williamson will remain at the helm of the Badgers men’s hockey team.Turning down offers to return to the bench of a major junior hockey team, Williamson has accepted a three-year contract to coach the Brock Badgers.“The interim thing was a really good learning experience for me and I absolutely loved it,” Williamson said. “I had more fun this year than I’ve had in a long time.”Named interim head coach last August, Williamson had previously spent six seasons as coach and general manager of the Ontario Hockey League’s Niagara IceDogs. During his tenure there, he led the team to six-straight playoff appearances and two OHL conference championships. Prior to that, Williamson coached the Barrie Colts for six seasons.After arriving at Brock, he led the Badgers to a 14-14 regular season record, which was followed by a strong playoff run that included six more wins and a berth in the U SPORTS University Cup National Championships in Fredericton. A first-round loss there ended the season, but Williamson was rewarded with the OUA West and Brock University Coach of the Year titles.“His level of professionalism and his experience as a coach makes him a perfect fit for what we’re building here,” said Brock Sports Director Neil Lumsden. “He was put in a tough situation with a very short amount of time to take over a team that wasn’t his, but he made the most of it and his team responded to him.”Williamson had been linked to at least one Ontario Hockey League job opening, but he said the opportunity at Brock was exactly what he was looking for.“I enjoyed the dual aspect of coaching the team and then being part of the University,” he said. “There’s a great atmosphere here. It was really a no-brainer. As long as they wanted me, I wanted to be here.”With 11 players graduating, the 2018-19 Badgers men’s hockey team will look far different than it did last year, but Williamson said there’s now an expectation for success.“Yes, we had to replace a number of important pieces, but I think we’ve done a good job of that. I see a similar scenario to last year where there was a growing period and then we kept getting better. There might be some growing pains, but I think we can defend our OUA West title and get back to nationals again,” he said.Lumsden is also confident that Williamson can guide the team back to that level again.“My expectation is the younger guys from the previous team will step up and be those leaders on the ice and character guys in the dressing room,” he said. “I don’t see any reason why we can’t be as good or better than last year.”The Badgers will kick off the 2018-19 season with the annual Steel Blade Classic game at the Meridian Centre on Friday, Sept. 21. read more


Junior forward Lindsay Agnew (20) maintains possession during a match against Illinois State on Aug. 21. Credit: Courtesy of OSUAfter Thursday evening’s game was postponed because of torrential rain and threats of lightning, the No. 17 Ohio State women’s soccer team returned to Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium on Friday morning for an 11 a.m. meeting with Florida International.The Buckeyes took control of the makeup game, defeating the Panthers 3-1 to improve to 4-0-1.Coach Lori Walker was pleased with the players’ improvement in their decision-making skills in the second half of the game.“We were slow to make decisions in the first half, but we addressed that again at halftime because I think it’s an evolving process for us,” Walker said. “I thought we did a much better job in the second half of having our head on a swivel and finding multiple options, instead of just narrowing down on one.”The Buckeyes had several chances to score in the first half, eventually finding the back of the net in the 31st minute when junior forward Nichelle Prince scored off of an assist from sophomore midfielder Nikki Walts and junior defender Morgan Wolcott. Walts sent a feed from the corner and Wolcott knocked it from inside six yards to assist Prince’s score.The score was already Prince’s third goal this season, equaling her total from an injury-shortened 2014 season.“I think we need to keep getting better every game,” Prince said. “We can’t get complacent. We can’t just think we’ve made it just because we’ve had a few wins.”Prince said she knows the season has truly just begun.“We have to keep trying to improve and keep trying to get better, because once we get into Big Ten there are going to be tougher teams that we’re going to play and we have to be ready for that,” Prince said. Following halftime, FIU senior midfielder Madlen Weinhardt scored just 15 seconds into the opening of the second half.The Scarlet and Gray then took the lead in the 57th minute on an own goal off a Walts corner kick, making the sophomore responsible for a goal and an assist in the match.Walts said the team’s undefeated start through five games after a disappointing 6-10-3 season last year is largely due to a change in team culture.“Training has been amazing. It’s my second year here, and I’ve loved it,” Walts said. “Our coaches have definitely gotten practices together to lead us to where we are now, and it’s awesome.”Walts was named player of the game by her teammates.Walker said she was pleased with Walts’ performance this afternoon and thinks more production like that could be in store for the midfielder. “I think there are so many little things that Nikki does,” she said. “She has a huge engine, she can run all day. But the beauty of what she really brings to our team is just a soccer savvy.” The Buckeyes continued their hot streak, scoring again in the 66th minute when sophomore forward Sammy Edwards scored from inside the box, with an assist from freshman midfielder Sarah Roberts.“We have to keep coming out hard in practice, and preparing ourselves, no easy days. We want that championship, so we have to prepare ourselves every day. Nothing is easy for us,” Walts said.The Buckeyes now stand at 4-0-1 and are 3-0 at home. They are set to host West Virginia on Sept. 11 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. read more


first_imgA new report has identified an area of the Simpson Desert straddling the South Australian-Northern Territory border as sufficiently promising to be a serious contender in Australia’s rapidly emerging underground coal gasification, coal bed methane and gas-to-liquids (GTL) industries. The report, the full text of which will be released shortly, found potential for well in excess of 1,000,000 Mt of coal in the Purni Formation of the Pedirka Basin with estimates suggesting the coal seam potential is very well identified between 200 and 1,000 m depth.The findings will now be used by Perth-based Central Petroleum Limited (CTP) to explore further the potential for various technology applications such as underground coal gasification (UCG), GTL and coal-to-liquids (CTL). CTP commissioned the independent report, from independent geological consulting firm, Al Maynard & Associates, in the wake of the discovery by the company late last year of significant coal thicknesses of well over 100 m of cumulative coal seams in the Purni Formation. The report’s authors were asked to determine the total tonnage of Permian coal in the Basin that could possibly be amenable to UCG and/or coal bed methane (CBM) gas extraction as a possible feedstock for GTL processes. Central Petroleum has other joint ventures over the acreage but is pursuing in its own right, outside the current Joint Venture, the potential for UCG and GTL options in the Pedirka Basin.“The findings are a solid outcome and whilst there has not yet been sufficient drilling to arrive at a JORC resource estimate, the report has defined a coal Exploration Target potential of between 0.6-1.3 trillion tonnes above 1,000 m with a total tonnage inclusive of deeper coal sections of between 1.5 to 2.1 trillion tonnes in CTP’s combination of Mining and Petroleum Act permits and applications that covers most of the same ground,” Central Petroleum’s Managing Director, John Heugh, said.“This is a significant conclusion, as the estimate is based on a realistic contribution of several factors, including a fresh interpretation of the geometry of the Basin, three dimensional data from seismic surveys, 2008 drillholes including cumulative coal intercepts of much greater than 100 m, and supporting geophysical downhole logging data. We were already aware from previous modelling that the Basin’s coal footprint extends over more than 9,000 km2 of the Purni Formation alone in EP 93, just one of the company’s Pedirka Basin tenements, so this is a further step along the confidence path to vindicate substantive coal focused drilling throughout the Basin.”The tonnage estimates are contained in a combination of petroleum and mining permits dually or singularly held by Central Petroleum over the total footprint hosting the coal seams. The dual tenure enacted by the Company is a strategic move to ensure that clarification by State Authorities (NT & SA Governments) of how competing coal gas extraction technologies will be permitted will be covered under either ‘Mineral’ or ‘Petroleum’ legislation.Industry experience to date suggests that the range of energy available per tonne of coal via UCG processes is 10-20 Gj/t. This equates to approximately 1 bbl – 2 bbl of liquid petroleum products such as diesel, jet fuel or naphtha per tonne of coal if the gas was put through a GTL plant.“In addition to today’s findings, we are also encouraged by the positive UCG trial results being obtained by sector leading operators such as Linc Energy and Carbon Energy,” Heugh said. “These trial results also compare favourably with the long history of UCG applications fuelling a 400 MW power station in Uzbekistan. The operator there, Yerostigaz, is, so far, the only company in the world that has commercially produced Underground Coal Gas (UCG) for use as feedstock for the generation of power. Not only has it commercially produced gas for nearly 50 years commencing production in 1961 but it has done so continually and without interruption to gas supply during that period. The technology being favoured in Australia’s developments in these sectors has also undergone significant innovative improvements in recent years compared to the old UCG and GTL technologies dating back to World War II. We are therefore encouraged and heartened at many levels about the near term coal technology options for the Pedirka Basin that CTP aims to commercialise.last_img read more

first_imgThis guitar-shaped controller for the original Nintendo Entertainment System will look wonderfully right next to the NES Controller Coffee Table we discovered a little while back. Over at Hack A Day, one user has built what she’s calling the NES Paul (see what she did there?) to be a controller that looks and feels like a guitar for a game she’s building at the same time that will feature video game music from classic games, called 8-Bit Hero. The controller is entirely hand-made, made from wood and a few other easily obtained materials. The wiring and button controls were all pulled from an XBox 360 controller that was disassembled and transformed into the d-pad, start and select buttons, and the A and B buttons on the neck of the guitar. The whole thing is pretty incredible for a how-to project, and with Guitar Hero now dead, you never know – maybe 8-Bit Hero will take off. She’ll have to find a way to mass produce those NES Pauls though.AdChoices广告last_img read more


first_imgIf the words “skynet” and “terminator” come to your mind while watching the video above, don’t worry, you aren’t the only one. Created by DARPA contractor Boston Dynamics, the robot is known as Cheetah and has set the land speed record for a legged robot by running at a full 18mph. That’s 4.9mph faster than the former record set back in 1989. While 18mph might not seem that fast, go out and try running at the same speed for a long period of time. We’ll be right here with the defibrillator when you need it.The robot pictured above is modeled after the fastest land based animal on Earth, which of course is the cheetah. Found mostly in Africa and the Middle East, the cheetah is capable of running as fast as 70mph for distances up to 1,600 feet. Its acceleration speed rivals that of a Bugatti Super Sport, with the animal being able to go from 0 to 62mph in under 3-seconds (the Super Sport does it in 2.7). It’s easy to see why this kind of speed would be appealing to DARPA, a military robot that could travel independently at such a speed would be a major asset during operations.Boston Dynamics, also the creator of the Alpha Dog , designed the robot to take advantage of the cheetah’s bone structure and physical makeup. By angling the feet and allowing its back to flex during strides, they created a more efficient range of motion allowing for higher speeds. As you witnessed in the video above, right now the testing is being conducted on an electric treadmill, which doesn’t vary the terrain or put obstacles in its path. Boston Dynamics is planning on doing real world testing soon, with the goal of achieving much higher speeds at some point.While the military has no clear cut use for a robot like this, the field applications are pretty obvious. From carrying medical supplies or a wounded soldier, to performing shoot and run recon, the Cheetah would be welcomed into any unit I’d imagine. DARPA is putting a tremendous amount of resources into developing projects of this type. Borrowing again from nature, the military research organization has also funded a robotic ostrich that’s being designed to negotiate terrain at high speeds. It will be interesting to see what future development holds for both projects. Read more at DARPA via Wired and The Vergelast_img read more

Haven’t you ever experienced the creeping fear that the book you have just finished reading, the one you loved till the last pages and you held the plot close to your heart, will one day be made into a terrible movie? As any avid book reader will probably know only a few of these book to film adaptations are able to arouse the same feelings as the book. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’While the Harry Potter movies were passable (though, how could you leave out Peeves? or how can one mess up Voldemort’s death scene?), and movies like Gone with the Wind (1939) did reestablish my faith in cinema, but then something like The Mortal instruments: City of Bones (2013)  made me curl up in bed and weep.With Hunger Games Mockingjay Part I just released, I am half dreading, half anticipating watching the movie. The first two films were pretty amazing, and one of the best thing about the film series is the casting. Jennifer Lawrence is extraordinary as Katniss Everdeen, the leading lady. The male leads are equally good and the film establishes the dystopia that the author Suzanne Collins wanted you to experience.It may be safe to say that the movie will not be disappointing considering the preceding two in the series and a fair review can be done only after one  has watched the movie, the reader in me has her fingers crossed.

SapFix and Sapienz Facebooks hybrid AI tools to automatically find and fix

first_img“Debugging code is drudgery”-Facebook Engineers Yue Jia, Ke Mao and Mark Harman To significantly reduce the amount of time developers spend on debugging code and rolling out new software, Facebook engineers have come up with an ingenious tool called ‘SapFix’. Sapfix, which is still under development, can automatically generate fixes for specific bugs  identified by Sapienz. It will then propose these fixes to engineers for approval and deployment to production. SapFix will eventually be able to operate independently from Sapienz, Facebook’s intelligent automated software testing tool. For now, it is a proof-of-concept that relies on the latter tool to pinpoint bugs. How does SapFix work? This AI hybrid tool will generate bug fixes depending upon the type of bug encountered. For instance: For simpler bugs: SapFix will create patches that revert the code submission that introduced these bugs.For complicated bugs: The tool uses a collection of “templated fixes” that were created by human engineers based on previous bug fixes.If human-designed template fixes aren’t up to the job: The tool attempts a “mutation-based fix,” which works by continuously making small modifications to the code that caused the software to crash, until a solution is found. SapFix generates multiple potential fixes for every bug. This is then submitted to the engineers for evaluation. The fixes are tested in advance so engineers can check if they might cause problems like compilation errors and other crashes. Source: Facebook With an automated end-to-end testing and repair, SapFix is an important milestone in AI hybrid tool deployment. Facebook intends to open source both, SapFix and Sapienz, once additional engineering work has been completed. You can read more about this tool on Facebook’s Blog.
