He said it was not difficult as professionals to play under different leaders.    “A captain is in charge of the ship and it is very important to go behind him if the team needs to succeed. It’s not going to be a bigchallenge as far as I am concerned. I have always been a captain’sbowler and thus I am going to enjoy playing under him,” Ashwin said.advertisement”It’s important to give Dhoni the kind of comfort he needs,” the offspinner said.  Also read: Kohli, Ashwin move up, India retain No 2 spot in ODI rankings Ashwin said the young team enjoyed the series victory against Sri Lanka.

It’s a good variety to have,” Ashwin said.Ashwin said he was getting himself ready for  the South African challenge. “South African’s are known to be good travellers.

I’ve thought things like ‘maybe it is not worth continuing’.”If things go well, maybe next year I can play at the top level again.”The last surgery was seven weeks ago, and my tenth in total.

Auburn has thrived on defense this season, in particular, allowing under 16 points per game. The Tigers’ defense is ranked No. 10 in FPI and No. 6 in SP+, ESPN’s two major college football metrics.The game may come down to whichever team best contains the other’s rushing attack. Auburn’s JaTarvious Whitlow has 408 yards and four yards on the year, while Mississippi State will ride lead back Kylin Hill, who has 551 yards and five scores. MSU’s Shrader and Auburn’s Joey Gatewood are each the backup quarterback, but both are second on their respective team in rushing yards, adding a dangerous element for each side as well.Auburn will go from this game to a tough division crossover against Florida, while Mississippi State is on bye before an Oct. 12 game at Tennessee.

(Photo by Daniel Shirey/Getty Images)Overshadowed by conference powerhouses Alabama, Georgia, and LSU, Auburn has somewhat quietly clawed up to No. 7 in both the AP and Coaches Polls. This weekend, the Tigers face SEC West foe Mississippi State.The Bulldogs present some uncertainty to Saturday’s game. Mississippi State’s quarterback situation is still very much in flux.Penn State transfer Tommy Stevens won the job out of camp, and had some impressive moments early in the season. He was forced out during the team’s close loss to Kansas State in Week 3 with an injury.Stevens participated in practice this week but remains questionable. If he can’t go, freshman Garrett Shrader, who guided the team to a 28-13 win over Kentucky last week, will get another start. Stevens is 36-for-55 for 441 yards, five touchdowns, and two interceptions, while Shrader is 28-for-45 for 302 yards and an interception. Both players bring a rushing element as well, as Stevens has score twice on the ground, while Shrader has 223 yards and a touchdown this season.last_img read more

Canadian threat report highlights rise in simple but deadly terror attacks

first_imgOTTAWA – Public Safety Canada warns that extremists are increasingly carrying out simple but deadly attacks using knives and vehicles.In its annual public report on the terrorist threat to Canada, the department notes such unsophisticated but “high-impact” assaults took place recently in Edmonton, where five people were injured, and in New York, killing eight people and injuring several more.The report says terrorists also intend to develop cyberattack capabilities, but to date have shown little ability to launch damaging operations.It says just over 190 extremists with a nexus to Canada are abroad and suspected of engaging in terrorist activity.In addition, the government is aware of about 60 who have returned to Canada.The report says these numbers have remained relatively stable over the last two years, as it has become more difficult for extremists to successfully leave or return to Canada.— Follow @JimBronskill on Twitterlast_img read more

 

Quebec entrepreneurs hope to add positive touch to Oscar nominee gift bags

by Morgan Lowrie, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 25, 2017 5:00 am MDT Last Updated Feb 25, 2017 at 9:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Quebec entrepreneurs hope to add positive touch to Oscar nominee gift bags MONTREAL – Along with luxury vacations, diamond bracelets and personal training sessions, celebrities who receive unofficial gift bags at the Oscars this year will also get a modest offering from Quebec.The famously over-the-top swag bags, whose value usually runs in the six figures, is distributed annually by a Los Angeles-based marketing company to the nominees in the best actor, actress, supporting actor and actress and best director categories.This year, the bag will contain a “Positive Cube” — a small wooden box produced by Quebec-based company Bangarang. The boxes contain 199 cards, each bearing a positive or inspirational saying.Marie-Eve D’Amico, one-half of the young couple behind the product, is crossing her fingers that a big star such as Meryl Streep or Denis Villeneuve will take a shine to it.“With the mission we have of spreading the positive and supporting worthy causes, I think that touches people, so we’ll see,” she said in a phone interview.D’Amico said she paid a fee, which she declined to reveal, to be included in the bag for both the Grammy Awards and the Oscars.It’s a marketing move she says is already paying off — even without a star endorsement.“It’s a lot of visibility,” she said. “We’ve already had a lot of sales in the United States since the announcement that we were in the Grammy bag,” she said.Although the company that produces the gift bags says it isn’t officially affiliated with the Oscars, being associated with a celebrity event can be an effective marketing tool, another Quebec entrepreneur says.2017 will mark the fifth year Rouge Maple has been contributing organic syrup and other maple products to the celebrity gift bags.Co-founder Julie DeBlois says the event’s visibility has boosted exposure and allowed the company to associate itself with a glamorous event.“It’s a golden opportunity if you fit with the brand,” she said. “They want something refined, high-end — a niche product.”But one Alberta jewelry maker says even small-town entrepreneurs can benefit from Oscar exposure.Kim Ducherer says her “Farm Wife Style” line of affordable handmade jewelry is still selling well after going in the bags last year.“It was definitely worth it,” said Ducherer, who lives on a farm outside Leduc, Alta.“When you’re in a small Canadian community, doing that will give you a lot of local exposure.” read more

Uruguay les écologistes sopposent à une usine de pâte à papier géante

first_imgUruguay : les écologistes s’opposent à une usine de pâte à papier géanteUne usine de pâte à papier géante doit voir le jour en Uruguay. Les constructeurs promettent de créer des milliers d’emplois mais sont très fortement critiqués par les écologistes et les agriculteurs de la région.Les groupes finlandais et chilien Stora-Enso et Arauco viennent de voir validé leur projet de construction d’une usine à pâte à papier en Uruguay. Les deux sociétés promettent de créer 6.000 emplois pour la construction puis 5.500 emplois lorsque l’usine tournera à plein régime, produisant 1,3 million de tonnes de pâte à papier.À lire aussiL’impressionnant repas d’un héron surpris en pleine natureSitué dans une zone du sud ouest, le village de Conchillas espère voir se concrétiser ce projet qui apporterait du travail à toute la population. En effet, en investissant l’équivalent de 5% du PIB de l’Uruguay (1,9 milliard de dollars) et après avoir acquis 250.000 hectares de terrain, cette usine ferait vivre la région toute entière.Mais les écologistes dénoncent le danger environnemental d’une telle usine. Déjà, le groupe chilien Arauco a dû fermer certaines de ses usines au Chili, comme le rappelle l’AFP. Une indemnisation avait même dû être versée aux pêcheurs qui avaient vu mourir des milliers de poissons suite à des fuites de produits toxiques en provenance des usines. D’autres usines du groupe sont également en procès depuis 2005, accusées d’avoir provoqué la mort de centaines de cygnes dans le sud du Chili.L’usine “Montes del Plata” qui doit être construite devrait être contrôlée par l’entreprise elle-même et par des tiers, affirme la directrice de la communication. D’autre part, l’Uruguay assure que les usines installées dans le pays respectent toutes des normes précises.Mais les plantations d’eucalyptus nécessaires à la confection de pâte à papier “dégrade les sols, en particulier les ressources en eaux”, indiquent les écologistes de Guayubira. Pour les industriels, “aucune preuve n’existe”.Le 6 mars 2011 à 13:49 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Half of employers do not have a financial wellbeing strategy

first_imgAlmost half (49%) of employers do not have a financial wellbeing strategy in place for their employees, according to research by pensions and investment consultancy Barnett Waddingham.Beyond Pensions: Pension and the Provision of Wider Financial Wellbeing, an Employer’s Perspective, which surveyed 200 UK organisations and 43 of the firm’s client base, also found that although 84% of respondents feel there is a need for financial education and guidance for their employees, 60% do not provide any form of guidance. Similarly, almost two-thirds (60%) of respondents have not raised any awareness among employees to safeguard them against pension scams.Paul Leandro (pictured), partner at Barnett Waddingham, said: “Until financial wellbeing enters the board level agenda, and overarching strategies are agreed and monitored, employees will continue to receive employer-paid benefits that are not effective at helping them with the financial issues they face today or tomorrow, or the ‘one day’.”The majority (88%) of respondents are concerned about the financial issues their employees are struggling with, and 50% believe their employees look to them for financial advice and guidance. Despite this, 61% of respondents cite cost as one of the main obstacles to implementing financial wellbeing provisions. Other obstacles include measuring return on investment (33%), employee engagement (41%) and board level buy-in (19%).“Obtaining board level buy-in is a priority for HR and pensions managers,” added Leandro. “But proving the value of having a well thought-out financial wellbeing strategy, which provides a tangible return on investment, is key to this. Only 50% of organisations actually have measures in place to address this.”Three-quarters (74%) of respondents contribute more than the minimum auto-enrolment rates to their employees’ pension scheme. A quarter (24%) of respondents think the employer has the main responsibility for ensuring employees have the minimum living wage income at retirement, compared to 28% who feel this responsibility lies on the employee and 27% who believe the government should take ownership of this.Around 62% of respondents do not think their organisation has a gender pay gap, while 68% of employers feel the gap between non-management and senior management pay is right, compared to 27% of employees.Under a third (29%) of respondents have introduced financial planning and advice as a wider financial provision to help staff. This compares to 28% who have implemented employer loans and debt management, 26% who have introduced share schemes, 25% who have put financial education in place and 10% who have implemented workplace individual savings accounts (Isas).More than half (58%) of respondents cite the key benefit of their organisation’s defined contribution (DC) pension scheme, from the employer’s point of view, is to reward employees, while 39% believe it helps to retain employees and 42% think it helps employees retire when they are ready. Interestingly, 37% of employers would have the appetite for a collective DC scheme, if these were to come into force.Leandro said: “Regulatory fatigue around pensions is lessening and given there has been no policy changes for three years, employers feel they have more freedom to be creative with the wider pension and financial benefit strategy for employees. However, beyond pension provision, [organisations] are struggling to implement the right level of financial wellbeing support and provisions.”last_img read more

 

Quebecor World Changes Name to World Color Press Not Novink

first_imgQuebecor World has officially emerged from bankruptcy protection in the U.S. and Canada, the Montreal-based magazine printer said today.As part of its plans of reorganization, Quebecor World closed on $800 million in exit financing and drew approximately $540 million to repay its debtor-in-possession credit facility. The company’s previously issued and outstanding multiple voting shares, redeemable first preferred shares and subordinate voting shares were effectively canceled.According to president and CEO Jacques Mallette, the restructuring and reorganizing process “has made us financially healthier and allowed us to start fresh with a strong balance sheet and a leaner cost structure. We believe the company is now better positioned to meet the present and future competition in the industry and to create value for our stakeholders.”Last month, Quebecor rejected a $1.82 billion offer from competing printer R.R. Donnelley to purchase the company. Although the offer included millions more in cash than Quebecor’s reorganization plan, the company’s board of directors felt the deal would trigger a lengthy antitrust review, which could have delayed its creditors from receiving the cash that would come to them as part of the restructuring. New NameIn connection with the announcement, Quebecor said it will change its name to World Color Press—a name the company has owned since 1999. The company previously was said to be considering the name Novink.The company said it intends to announce a branding campaign within the next 60 days.Printing ExtensionQuebecor also said this week that it signed a multi-year agreement with Schofield Media to continue printing 18 trade magazines, the company said.Titles under the agreement include U.S. Business Review, Manufacturing Today, Beverage World and Restaurant Business.last_img read more

Chrome 54 background HTML5 video play on Android

first_imgChrome 54: background HTML5 video play on Android by Martin Brinkmann on September 16, 2016 in Google Android – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 3 commentsGoogle Chrome 54 for Android introduces new background video playback capabilities to the web browser if HTML5 video elements are played in it.If you use Chrome on Android, you may have noticed that the browser stops playing videos automatically when you switch to another application, tab in the browser, or lock the device.While that is desired sometimes, it may irritate you at other times. Maybe you want to turn off the display to save battery while the video, a music video or playlist perhaps, continues to play in the background.This was not possible up until now, but changes with the release of Chrome 54 for Android.The browser is currently available on the beta channel. If you run the beta version of Chrome on Android, then you may take advantage of the new feature right away.First thing you may want to do is check whether you are running Chrome 54 on your Android device.Open Chrome on your Android device.Tap on the menu icon in the top right corner of the Chrome browser (the three dots).Select Help & Feedback from the menu that opens (it is the last entry, you may need to scroll).On the page that opens, tap on the menu icon again.Select “version info” on the page”.This displays the version of Google Chrome on the device.Now, to make use of the new background video playback feature in Chrome, do the following:Visit a video page and start to play a video there. You may do this on YouTube, TED, and any other site on the Internet that supports streaming video using HTML5 video (Basically, if the video plays, it should work).Open a new tab, switch to another app, or the launcher area of your device.Swipe down to display the notifications area.There you find a new listing for the video that you started to play. Android lists the name and url, and may display other information such as the application the video is open in.Click on the play icon to continue playback of the video. You may tap on pause at any time to pause playback again.The video starts to play again when you hit the play button. It continues to play regardless of what you do now: lock the phone, open another app, or keep the launcher area open.Here is a video by Google that demonstrates the functionality:Google notes that developers can take advantage of background video playback by using the Page Visibility API.In addition to fullscreen improvements, Chrome on Android now persists the media notification of a backgrounded HTMLVideoElement, allowing a user to continue playing videos while they aren’t visible. Developers can detect background video playback by using the Page Visibility API.So how is Firefox for Android handling video playback? Better I guess. If you use the browser to play videos on YouTube for instance, playback will continue if you switch to another app or lock the device.Now You: Does your mobile browser support background playback?SummaryArticle NameChrome 54: background HTML5 video play on AndroidDescriptionGoogle Chrome 54 for Android introduces new background video playback capabilities to the web browser if HTML5 video elements are played in it.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Boasts Even Slimmer Bezels Punch Hole Camera GestureCapable

The top and bottom bezels are almost nonexistent, and the sides taper thanks to curved edges. The hole-punch camera has been relocated to the middle and is even smaller than the one found on the Galaxy S10. The fingerprint sensor is tucked underneath the screen. On the back, the cameras are stacked vertically much like on the iPhone X.New S PenClearly, Samsung added improvements across the board. Even the S Pen got a pretty cool spec bump, as it now features an accelerometer and gyroscope, which paves the way for air gestures or being able to control and navigate the device even with the S Pen just hovering near, sans any direct contact.But even though Samsung brought a lot, it also had to take something crucial — the headphone jack. For years, the company stood firm and unflinching against the tidal wave of phone manufacturers opting out of the traditional audio port, but alas, it’s finally caved in. Samsung says it used the extra space for more battery. To be fair, Samsung is including a pair of USB Type-C headphones in the box, but there’s no dongle, which costs $10.Another thing that’s gone is the Bixby button, the function now relegated to a long-press on the power button. Double-pressing it, meanwhile, launches the camera.Check out the specs at a glance:Galaxy Note 10• 6.3-inch display, 2,280 x 1,080 resolution• 8 GB RAM• 256 GB UFS 3.0 storage, no microSD expansion• 3,500 mAh batteryGalaxy Note 10 Plus• 6.8-inch display, 3,040 x 1,440 resolution• 12 GB RAM• 256 GB or 512 GB UFS 3.0 storage, with microSD expansion• 4,300 mAh battery• VGA depth-of-field cameraBoth• Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip• S Pen with Bluetooth LE, accelerometer and gyroscope.• Dynamic AMOLED screen with tone mapping• 16-megapixel wide-angle camera.• 12-megapixel dual-aperture camera• 12-megapixel telephoto camera• 10-megapixel selfie camera• In-display fingerprint sensorCheck out the official introduction video below:Both phones go on preorder starting Aug. 8, then go on sale this Aug. 23.

Bestseller DEAL OF THE DAY (2) ENDS IN Close The new Galaxy Note 10 and Note Plus are hardly surprising thanks to leakers who practically unveiled them in full before Samsung could. Still, both variants represent an exciting change of pace.  ( Samsung ) Despite the leaks that ran up to its Galaxy Note 10 launch, Samsung still manages to impress its fans with the latest phone in the Note 10 family, a radically different and improved device — in terms of design, specs, and many other aspects — from those that came before.The Galaxy Note 10 is hardly a surprise; leaks already revealed what it was going to look like and what specs it’s going to boast. Samsung unveiled not one but two smartphones: the base Galaxy Note 10 that’s got a 6.3-inch screen, and its bigger sibling, the Galaxy Note 10 Plus, which boasts a whopping 6.8-inch display.Galaxy Note 10 And Note 10 PlusThe regular Galaxy Note 10 starts at $949 and has just one configuration: 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. The Note 10 Plus costs $1,099 and packs 12 GB of RAM and has the same storage as its little sibling, though users can splurge $100 more to bump it to 512 GB. There’s also technically a third model capable of 5G, and it will be exclusive to Verizon for “a limited” time. $18.99$18.99 All Bestseller $8.99$29.99 DEAL OF THE DAY Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ Plus Factory Unlocked Phone with 256GB (U.S. Warranty), Aura Glow (Silver) $1099.99$1099.99 DEAL OF THE DAY Related Products (1) ENDS IN Ads by Amazon Bestseller AllVideo On Demand: Rent or BuyClothing & AccessoriesMajor AppliancesArts, Crafts & SewingAutomotiveBaby & NurseryBeauty & GroomingBooks & TextbooksCollectible CoinsCamera & PhotoCell Phones & AccessoriesClassical MusicComputers, Tablets & ComponentsBlu-Ray & DVDElectronic Components & Home AudioEntertainment CollectiblesVideo GamesOther Gift Card BrandsGrocery & Gourmet FoodPatio, Lawn & GardenHealth & HouseholdBusiness & Industrial SuppliesJewelryKindle StoreKitchen & DiningMagazinesMiscellaneousDigital MusicCDs & VinylMusical InstrumentsOffice & School SuppliesPet Food & SuppliesPatio, Lawn & GardenShoes, Handbags, Wallets, SunglassesSoftwareSports CollectiblesSports & FitnessHome ImprovementToys & GamesVHSVideo GamesWatches (3) DEAL OF THE DAY SUPCASE Unicorn Beetle Pro Series Case Designed for Sa… ESR Metal Kickstand Compatible with Galaxy Note 10 Plus Ca… $19.99$19.99 ENDS IN Spigen NeoFlex Screen Protector [TPU Film] Designed for Sam…last_img read more
