Spellcheck This: Microsoft Office 2010, The Movie

first_imgsteven walling Yes, Microsoft has a promo video for Microsoft Office 2010, and we’re posting it. This isn’t slapped together by some corporate PR hack with iMovie (oops, did we say that?) Microsoft gave self-described YouTuber Dennis Liu of Traffik Film Works a free hand, and the results are pretty amusing. The official release of Office 2010 is still quite a ways off, but if you’re looking for a bit of Friday buffoonery and you’d like to revel in seeing Clippy in his grave, I suggest you take a look-see. After watching it, the only thing we’re wondering is exactly who managed to sneak a link to the trailer into the Office 2010 Wikipedia article.

The Value of Linked Open Data [Infographic]

first_imgPeople still know little about data visualization, much less how to access data to turn it into a visual experience.A post on Datavisualization.ch provides a thorough perspective about the value of Open Linked Data for visual creators.The post explains the Semantic Web and Linked Data. To show the connection, Peter Gasner adds the concept of Open Data as a third pillar for visual creators.Open, Linked Data has clear licensing terms and it can be easily linked to other data sets. He created an image to show how open Linked Data is represented. You can see that it is a small amount of the overall data we have available. The light blue data represents what is open. Dark blue is open and linked. Tags:#Analysis#cloud#cloud computing Related Posts What is available open Linked Data. Wikipedia provides open Linked Data as does data.gov.Sites like data.gov have started to provide Open Data as a central, searchable catalog, often with the option of accessing the data through APIs, which makes it a lot easier to consume the data, as it doesn’t have to be transformed, combined and prepared for a program to use. With this central catalog in place, it is now possible to go a step further and start transforming this data into a huge Linked Open Data set that is accessible to everyone. The issue is with the data itself. It can often be of poor quality, making it difficult to use for visual creators.There are several ways to make sure data is open and linked:The data is freely accessible and verifiable.It can be accessed by other people and turned into other works.The data is connected to other databases.Knowledge is built into the database so more people can work with it.There are more examples but this gives a picture of what is meant by open linked data. alex williams A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Congress downplays Aiyar’s barbs against non-Stephanians

first_imgMani Shankar Aiyar’s witticisms have left the Congress at its wit’s end.Unable to figure out how to deal with its enfant terrible – whose latest utterances have kicked up a St Stephen’s versus the rest controversy – the party on Tuesday sought to downplay the matter. It, however, tried to send a subtle message to him by underlining the need to be humble and civilised.When asked about the Stephanian Aiyar’s disparaging comments against Hansraj College and Kirori Mal College ( KMC), AICC spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said: “The Congress does not get into all these details, but the language of civility must be there at every discourse, at every forum.” Congress sources said being a senior leader, former Union minister and Rajya Sabha MP, the party high command had given Aiyar a long rope. Also, since he has not violated the party discipline as such, it can’t take action against him. All it can do is to deny him any major organisational post or a ministership in the event of a cabinet reshuffle in future.Aiyar’s acerbic tongue has embarrassed the Congress many times. In his latest, he left the partymen squirming with his unsavoury comments against sports minister Ajay Maken. In an interview, Aiyar said he did not believe that a BA- Pass student from Hansraj College could use a word like ‘ dichotomous’. His remark kicked up a row, but Aiyar was unapologetic. On Monday, he once again mocked not just Hansraj but also KMC, saying Amitabh Bachchan was its “sole achievement”. His remarks caused an outrage and St. Stephen’s principal Valson Thampu called up his Hansraj counterpart to douse the fire.advertisementlast_img read more

LOCAL CLUBS MAKING THE MOST OF THE INTERNET

first_imgWith the internet ready and available for access by virtually every Australian, there is no better way to build the communication channels in our sport. These channels are vital to the growth and development of touch at a local, regional, state and national level. ATA has seen the benefits of improved communication through the homepage and the MyClubTouch website and many other permits and local associations around Australia are seeing this as well. Newsletters that are able to be viewed on the computer and loaded on the internet are becoming common and the development of excellent websites that are regularly updated is also becoming common. Another site has come to ATA’s attention as an example of a local association making the most of their internet site. Visit the Triton Touch Association (Victoria) to see another example of what can be done with the use of the internet. TRITON TOUCH CLUB LINK By Rachel Moyle, [email protected]last_img read more

Police need to work harder says head of Saskatchewan police chiefs at

first_imgTamara PimentelAPTN NewsInteraction with police services has been one of the most critical topics at this week’s hearings of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.“I’ve heard multiple examples of how police perceived to have failed and, in many cases, continue to fail Indigenous people in this country,” said Katrina Swan of the Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police (SACP).Swan is the first of only a few parties with standing to represent police services in this week’s hearings in Calgary.Swan said the SACP, which represents 12 municipal police forces, has been taking note of issues arising within the inquiry.“Contact with the family is a critical part of the investigative process. I would love to stand before you today and say we get it right all the time,” she said.“But, as you’ve heard, as often as we get it right or think we get it right, we’re being told that we missed the mark. Police need to work harder at ensuring there is an open relationship and communication between the parties.”Charlene Belleau of the Esketemc First Nation in British Columbia represents the First Nations Health Council.She shared stories of missing and murdered women from her community and how cultural protocols are used as an alternative to the RCMP or justice system.“The victims of violence feel they lose their voice in the criminal justice system,” she said.“We wanted to be able to give them a voice through these protocols.”The traditional and ceremonial approach seems to be more effective, Belleau added.“When we have our healing circles they do acknowledge the behaviour, and they do acknowledge having perpetrated those crimes.”It also works faster.“We feel a responsibility that we can help these families that we don’t have to wait for the RCMP or police services or search and rescue,” Belleau said.“We can do things on our own and we should be doing what we can for these families.”Swan said while there are things police services need to work on, in Saskatchewan the SACP has been improving.“Police are involved in initiatives designed to address the root causes of vulnerability and marginalization of indigenous women and girls,” she said.“(They’re) becoming more involved in restorative justice efforts and are working collaboratively with community partners.”[email protected]@tamara_aptnlast_img read more

Report Atletico and Barcelona will go after Lozano

first_imgMexican forward Hirving Lozano has reportedly gone to the top of Atletico and Barcelona’s wishlist for next summer’s transfer window.We have already spoken a little bit about the talented Mexican forward Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano, the player who surprised clubs like Atletico and Barcelona last summer with his performance against Germany in the World Cup’s group stage. But Hirving has been delivering great performances in European football since day one at PSV Eindhoven, which is why there is a large number of European giants who are already considering on getting the Mexican player for the next summer transfer window. The only reason why Lozano didn’t leave PSV Eindhoven this summer, was because inside the squad they decided it wasn’t time for him to leave yet and they wanted him to be their most important player at the Champions League group stage this season. The Dutch champions are going to face Barcelona, Tottenham Hotspur, and Internazionale Milano with Hirving Lozano as the tip of the spear looking to score the goals.Hi guys! ??#PSVWIL pic.twitter.com/p0pcCgTqOZ— PSV (@PSV) September 1, 2018This second season in European football will be perfect for a club like Barcelona to make a final decision about the Mexican winger, they feel like he could be a great alternative for the time when Lionel Messi decides to retire from football and they are confident the player will respond accordingly to any challenge that presents itself to him at PSV. The Catalan club believes that Hirving Lozano is a perfect prospect for the future, his dribbling skills are one of a kind for Europe and they are aware that not many footballers in the world can do the things he does. And if that wasn’t enough to consider his status as a world-class superstar, Hirving Lozano can also score an elevated amount of goals during a whole season and this is yet another great reason for any big club to come after him. During his first season with PSV Eindhoven, Hirving Lozano scored 19 goals in his first 34 matches in all competitions and he has already scored 4 goals on his first 6 matches on this new season.Another goal for @HirvingLozano70 tonight? ?#PSVWIL pic.twitter.com/bCF5N0Iad1— PSV International (@psveindhoven) September 1, 2018David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.Atletico Madrid’s interest.But FC Barcelona wouldn’t be the only club that is interested on signing Hirving Lozano for their club next season, as Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid has been keeping tabs on the Mexican player for over a year and they would also go after his services according to Diario AS. We’ve already heard from Simeone’s mouth that he doesn’t want to sign his son Giovanni Simeone for the Colchoneros, which leaves the option for another striker next season and the Argentine manager is very keen on Lozano to eventually replace Antoine Griezmann as the main man on the attack. Other major clubs that will be interested in Lozano next summer are Borussia Dortmund from the Bundesliga, Manchester City and Manchester United from the Premier League, as well as AC Milan from Serie A. But if Lozano leaves to another club in the near future, the player would like to give either the Premier League or La Liga a chance before any other competition.So far so good! Great night for PSV! ❤#PSVWIL 4-0 pic.twitter.com/9gvCN0imrE— PSV International (@psveindhoven) September 1, 2018Another thing we can’t ignore about the possibility of Hirving Lozano leaving the Dutch champions is the fact that his “compadre” Erick Gutierrez just arrived in PSV Eindhoven this season and he would love to play a lot more together with him. ‘Guti’ just arrived from Mexican club Pachuca and will take a little bit to adapt, this whole process won’t be the same if Lozano isn’t there to stand by his best friend’s side at least during the first couple of years. We are not joking when we say that Hirving Lozano seems destined to become one of the best players in the world very soon, the top clubs in European football are aware of the bright future ahead of this player and they don’t want to miss on the opportunity of having him in their ranks. Next summer we could have a battle between many clubs to sign the Mexican winger, who already is the best player from his country at the moment.Players such as Guillermo Ochoa, Hirving Lozano and Erick Gutiérrez have returned to their current clubs and will not play our next match ? ?? in Nashville, TN. #PasiónyOrgullo | #MEXTOUR pic.twitter.com/9KLVmfsVHG— Mexican National Team (@miseleccionmxEN) September 8, 2018Which club do you think Lozano will pick after PSV Eindhoven?
