Philippines UN sends food for nearly 50000 people driven from homes by

30 December 2009The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has sent 20 metric tons of high energy biscuits to aid nearly 50,000 Filipinos forced to leave their homes by a possible eruption of Mount Mayon volcano in the northern Philippine island of Luzon. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has sent 20 metric tons of high energy biscuits to aid nearly 50,000 Filipinos forced to leave their homes by a possible eruption of Mount Mayon volcano in the northern Philippine island of Luzon.The biscuits, packed with vitamins and energy, will nourish refugees living in temporary shelters in schools and government buildings.The awakening of Mayon, with earthquakes and ash plumes indicating an eruption could be imminent, comes only a few months after the Philippines was hit by a series of typhoons which left over 200 people dead and hundreds of thousands more surrounded by floodwater. WFP assisted the government in dealing with that emergency, providing rice and high energy biscuits to displaced people.A mobile storage hub has been set up at a nearby Navy base in Legazpi City, providing warehousing for relief items. The Government and the international humanitarian community is working to position additional tents at evacuation centres in the region as well as latrines and water and sanitation facilities.“With WFP resources at their disposal the Filipino Government and its people are now better prepared than ever to respond in the event of an eruption,” the agency said today. read more

Every Switch Port Deserves the Pokken Tournament Deluxe Treatment

first_imgStay on target ‘Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball FormSNES Games Officially Come to Nintendo Switch No matter how great they were, games released on the Wii U weren’t likely to succeed due to how few units the quirky console ended up selling. But Pokken Tournament in particular never stood a chance. After originally releasing in Japanese arcades, Nintendo eventually brought the Pokemon fighting game to their then-current console in early 2016. However, by that point the world had basically moved on from the Wii U and spent the rest of the year anticipating the announcement of Nintendo’s next console the NX.Later that year the NX became the Nintendo Switch, and so far the gaming community has adopted the console/handheld hybrid much faster than its predecessor. Therefore, Nintendo has rightly recognized that some Wii U games deserve a second chance on the new system.Pokken Tournament DX, an enhanced version of the original, just released on the Nintendo Switch. There’s new content for fans of the first release like characters previously exclusive to arcade updates as well as entirely new character Decideuye, a ghost owl who shoots arrows and my new main. There’s a split-screen multiplayer mode, daily challenges, and a new three-on-three battle mode that better replicates the feel of a traditional turn-based Pokemon match but with free-flowing real-time combat.But the biggest new feature of Pokken on Switch is that it’s on the Switch. You can play the accessible, Tekken-inspired 3D monster fighter on your TV or wherever you are, perfect for impromptu matches. Bust out Pikachu’s Heihachi Mishima moveset on a bus. You can also play the game on a console that doesn’t have the spectre of death hovering over it. And this isn’t even the first quality port the Switch has seen since its launch in March.Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the arguably biggest Nintendo Switch Game That Isn’t Zelda so far, came out a few months ago. I played it religiously against our comrades-in-arms at IGN as well as other industry folks (I see you Greg Miller!), and I love it.Along with being arguably the best looking game Nintendo has ever made, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is loaded with characters and karts and race tracks from across the entire Nintendo (and Mercedes) spectrum. The new battle mode options have a really great and topical anti-police vibe. Being on Switch, the game also brings a console-level experience to a portable. The Deluxe subtitle reminded of the similarly acclaimed console-to-handheld enhancement Super Mario Bros. DX. In my opinion, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the best Mario Kart, especially if you’ve never played it before.Donkey King in a Mercedes, dabbing his way to the top of the Metacritic Conspiracy— Jordan Minor (@JordanWMinor) April 20, 2017However, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is also a new, significantly improved version of an old game, the original Mario Kart 8 a.k.a. the game still managed to sell pretty well on the Wii U. Obviously quality original games are crucial for the long-term health of the Switch or any other system. You can’t win with just raw numbers alone. However, consoles bolster their early libraries with new versions of old games more often than ever these days. There are so many games people may have missed the first time around that could find new life on a new machine. I’ve already listed which overlooked Wii U games should make the jump to Switch. However, after playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I now implore other Switch ports to be this good.Mario Kart 8 might be the best example of an enhanced Switch port so far (unless you also count Zelda which is more of a multiplatform game) but it’s not the only one. After witnessing the future of Lego games a few weeks ago, I began playing the Switch remaster of Lego City Undercover. The Lego take on Grand Theft Auto remains as simple but charming as ever with its humorous buddy cop tone and care-free toy car explosions. But as Zelda players already know, expansive open-world games lend themselves surprisingly well to portable play, and Lego City Undercover is no exception. The added co-op is also appreciated, even when it hurts the framerate.As a former Wii U exclusive like Mario Kart 8, Lego City Undercover makes sense as a port. Other upcoming Switch ports range from expected and straightforward (Rayman Legends, Minecraft) to nice surprises (Skyrim, I Am Setsuna) to completely random (Payday 2, Steep). But I’ve always felt that consoles should be treated less like curated television channels and more like open televisions themselves. So port whatever! Zombi, Scribblenauts, Prompto. Just take the effort to make the old game better. Street Fighter II is a great game, but it remains to be seen if the Ultra version on Switch makes meaningful improvements besides swapped colors and weird first-person fighting modes.This applies to indie games as well, which we already know are coming to Switch in droves. Fast Racing Neo on the Wii U was an intriguing F-Zero homage. But Fast RMX on Switch takes everything great about that futuristic racer and improves it with new tracks, visuals, handheld play, and post-launch updates like new time attack and multiplayer modes. As a side note, how great is it to see Switch patches that add more than framerate fixes that should have been in place at launch? Looking at you Zelda and Super Bomberman R.Indie games getting a second life can be even more beneficial for the developers than in AAA. I still don’t like roguelikes but the fervor around the physical release for The Binding of Isaac on Switch seriously got me to consider giving it a shot. So keep it coming. Bring Runbow and Freedom Planet and Guacamelee and Swords & Soldiers to Switch but better. And for the love of Grodd, please don’t make their physical versions cost more than the competition. Frankly, Nintendo should be subsidizing developers for those costs.Even Nintendo 3DS games should be on the table when it comes to enhanced Switch ports. After all, Wii and Wii U games like Xenoblade and Yoshi’s Woolly World came to the handheld, but imagine playing them on the go without visual compromises. We already suspect an enhanced version of Pokemon Sun and Moon will take over the world on Switch this holiday as Pokemon Stars. But during the most recent Nintendo Direct all I could think about was how I’d rather play new games like BoxBoy! and Hey! Pikmin and Ever Oasis on the new handheld instead of the old one.A huge part of the Switch’s appeal to me is the idea of all of Nintendo’s development talent focused on one platform and software library, with some mobile games on the side. That can’t happen as long as games like Fire Emblem Warriors keep getting released on the admittedly popular and profitable but aging 3DS.Of course, enhanced ports aren’t the only way to bring old games to new platforms. You can straight-up re-release classic games Virtual Console-style like the Neo Geo games of the Arcade Archives series. You can also bundle old games in themed, preservationist collections like Rare Replay, the Disney Afternoon Collection, and the upcoming Namco Museum for Switch.Conversely, you can take the time to fully remake a classic game. The odd hitboxes and difficulty curve of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap betray its status as an old Master System game. However, on Switch (and other platforms) the stunning illustrated visuals and orchestrated music make the nonlinear proto-Metroidvania adventure almost new, much more enjoyable, and absolutely worth playing. You can even swap between old and new graphics on the fly to see the difference between Mouse-Man and “vague 8-bit suggestion of Mouse-Man.”Again, greatly enhanced versions of old games are a supplement, not a replacement, for great new games. The Nintendo Switch needs great new games. But if more people get to experience Mario Kart 8, Lego City Undercover, Fast RMX, Wonder Boy and more because a better version is available on Switch or any other platform, that’s a great thing.Want to learn more?

Chemotactic movement used to carry drugs through bloodbrain barrier

The blood-brain barrier is a filtering mechanism involved with capillaries that carry blood to the brain. The filter is adapted to prevent harmful chemicals from entering one of the most critical organs. Scientists have looked at a variety of ways to coax chemicals through the blood-brain barrier, and while some have met with success, there is still a great need for improved options. In this new effort, the researchers have found a way to use chemotactic movement to carry desired chemicals through the filter.Chemotactic movement occurs when an organism responds to chemicals in the environment, causing them to move. The new technique does not involve inserting a foreign organism into the blood stream, of course; instead, it involves injecting vesicles (dubbed “nanoswimmers”), which are little pods filled with chemicals that move on their own through a chemical action called Brownian motion. Such motion is induced by making the vesicles asymmetric, with one side more permeable than the rest of the vesicle shell. This allows more of the material inside to react with material outside at just one side of the vesicle, causing it to move toward the material it finds attractive. (—An international team of researchers has developed a way to take advantage of chemotactic movement to carry drugs through the blood-brain barrier. In their paper published on the open access site Sciences Advances, the researchers describe the technique and its effectiveness in test rats. Play Glucose-guided nanoswimmers in a petri dish.

Chemotactic synthetic vesicles: Design and applications in blood-brain barrier crossing, Science Advances (2017). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1700362AbstractIn recent years, scientists have created artificial microscopic and nanoscopic self-propelling particles, often referred to as nano- or microswimmers, capable of mimicking biological locomotion and taxis. This active diffusion enables the engineering of complex operations that so far have not been possible at the micro- and nanoscale. One of the most promising tasks is the ability to engineer nanocarriers that can autonomously navigate within tissues and organs, accessing nearly every site of the human body guided by endogenous chemical gradients. We report a fully synthetic, organic, nanoscopic system that exhibits attractive chemotaxis driven by enzymatic conversion of glucose. We achieve this by encapsulating glucose oxidase alone or in combination with catalase into nanoscopic and biocompatible asymmetric polymer vesicles (known as polymersomes). We show that these vesicles self-propel in response to an external gradient of glucose by inducing a slip velocity on their surface, which makes them move in an extremely sensitive way toward higher-concentration regions. We finally demonstrate that the chemotactic behavior of these nanoswimmers, in combination with LRP-1 (low-density lipoprotein receptor–related protein 1) targeting, enables a fourfold increase in penetration to the brain compared to nonchemotactic systems.

Adv. 2017;3: e1700362 The researchers noted that one of the main materials that passes through the blood brain barrier is glucose, because the brain uses it as an energy source. By causing the vesicles to be attracted to glucose in higher concentrations, the researchers were able to coax the vesicle through the blood-brain barrier and into the brains of test mice. Once there, the vesicles were free to dissolve, releasing the chemicals inside. The researchers report finding a four-fold increase in the amount of medicine reaching the brain as compared to conventional methods.

Linux 420 kernel slower than its previous stable releases Spectre flaw to

Linux 420 kernel slower than its previous stable releases Spectre flaw to

first_imgOn the 4th of November, Linux 4.20 rc-1 was released with a host of notable changes right from AMD Vega 20 support getting squared away, AMD Picasso APU support, Intel 2.5G Ethernet support, the removal of Speck, and other new hardware support additions and software features. The release that was supposed to upgrade the kernel’s performance, did not succeed in doing so. On the contrary, the kernel is much slower as compared to previous Linux kernel stable releases. In a blog released by Phoronix, Michael Larabel,e lead developer of the Phoronix Test Suite, Phoromatic, and, discussed the results of some tests conducted on the kernel. He bisected the 4.20 kernel merge window to explore the reasons for the significant slowdowns in the kernel for many real-world workloads. The article attributes this degrade in performance to the Spectre Flaws in the processor. In order to mitigate against the Spectre flaw, an intentional kernel change was made.The change is termed as “STIBP” for cross-hyperthread Spectre mitigation on Intel processors. Single Thread Indirect Branch Predictors (STIBP) prevents cross-hyperthread control of decisions that are made by indirect branch predictors. The STIBP addition in Linux 4.20 will affect systems that have up-to-date/available microcode with this support and where a user’s CPU has Hyper-Threading enabled/present. Performance issues in Linux 4.20 Michael has done a detailed analysis of the kernel performance and here are some of his findings. Many synthetic and real-world tests showed that the Intel Core i9 performance was not upto the mark. The Rodinia scientific OpenMP tests took 30% longer, Java-based DaCapo tests taking up to ~50% more time to complete, the code compilation tests also extended in length. There was lower PostgreSQL database server performance and longer Blender3D rendering times. All this was noticed in Core i9 7960X and Core i9 7980XE test systems while the AMD Threadripper 2990WX performance was unaffected by the Linux 4.20 upgrade. The latest Linux kernel Git benchmarks also saw a significant pullback in performance from the early days of the Linux 4.20 merge window up through the very latest kernel code as of today. Those affected systems included a low-end Core i3 7100 as well as a Xeon E5 v3 and Core i7 systems. The tests conducted found the  Smallpt renderer to slow down significantly PHP performance took a major dive, HMMer also faced a major setback compared to the current Linux 4.19 stable series. What is surprising is that there are mitigations against Spectre, Meltdown, Foreshadow, etc in Linux 4.19 as well. But 4.20 shows an additional performance drop on top of all the previously outlined performance hits this year. In the entire testing phase, the AMD systems didn’t appear to be impacted. This would mean if a user disables Spectre V2 mitigations to account for better performance- the system’s security could be compromised. You can head over to Phoronix for a complete analysis of the test outputs and more information on this news.

NEW YORK NY — On January 12 2007 Alsace was gra

first_imgNEW YORK, NY — On January 12, 2007 Alsace was granted an AOC 51st Grand Cru, the Kaefferkopf of Ammerschwihr, a 175 acre swath of land in the heart of the Alsace region. Renowned for ideal climatic conditions for growing Alsace’s signature grape varietals, Kaefferkopf vineyards also benefit from a very specific geologic makeup, as they’re linked to a substratum that is partly granite and partly limestone.Kaefferkopf wines are crafted exclusively from Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris or Riesling grapes, respectively. They can also be composed of a blend of those varietals, plus Muscat , in the following proportions: * Between 60% and 80% Gewurztraminer * Between 10% and 40% Riesling * Under 30% Pinot Gris * And a maximum of 10% Muscat (in either Ottonel, the small white grape, or the small pink grape varieties) * Each varietal may be vinified separately before blending“This lieu-dit (locality) has found its place among the Grands Crus of Alsace. Indeed, it benefits from a decree of delimitation dating from 1932, which proves the characteristics of its terroir. In addition, the use of the name “Kaefferkopf” goes back several centuries,” says Thierry Fritsch, Oenologist in the Education Department of the CIVA (Alsace Wine Council). “The fact alone that for a hundred years the winemakers mainly worked on these blends, is what makes the unique characteristics of these wines. Originality, consistency and the terroir are what distinguishes a Grand Cru wine.”The 2007 Kaefferkopf wines, the first vintage under Grand Cru status, are hitting the market this summer, offering consumers their first chance to see why the Kaefferkopf of Ammerschwihr has joined 50 other celebrated Alsace regions in attaining the vaunted Grand Cru designation.For more information on Kaefferkopf and other Alsace wines and vineyards, please visit read more

Is the tourist boom passing Nicosia by

Is the tourist boom passing Nicosia by

first_imgVisitor numbers are up, but the city’s share of the tourist pie should be bigger stakeholders sayBy Evie AndreouNicosia has always been the poor cousin of Cyprus’ tourist industry, and although it has benefited from the tourism boom in recent years, those in the sector say much more could be done to attract the more than three million tourists expected to visit Cyprus this year.Unable to compete with the mass tourism, all-inclusive deals offered in the coastal towns, Nicosia has had to rely on its museums, culture and shopping to try and lure visitors away from the beach. This means virtually all visitors are day-trippers brought up to the capital on coaches by tour operators or driving themselves in rental cars.According to industry stakeholders, further growth of tourism in the Nicosia is inhibited by the lack of good public transport from coastal towns and their inconvenient operating hours, the city’s never-ending construction works, and the need for further embellishment of the capital.Tight budgets are another reason, they said, as travel agents will take tourists to as few places as possible where there is an entrance fee.Another factor is the north. The tourists are coming to Nicosia, but all too often they simply sail down Ledra street to cross over to the other side.According to the Nicosia Tourism Board (NTB), the capital attracts only around six to seven per cent of the overall tourist arrivals on the island.In the first three months of 2018 alone, tourist arrivals were up 29.3 per cent over the same period last year, according to data from the Passengers Survey. From January to March, a total of 369,438 people visited Cyprus, compared to 285,693 during the first quarter of 2017. In May, tourist arrivals rose by 7.6 per cent to 450,955 compared to the same month of 2017.According to data of the Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO), tourists visiting Nicosia stay for 2.3 nights, much lower than the overall average of 6.6 days.In total, just 121,720 arrivals were recorded last year in Nicosia’s hotels and other hospitality establishments out of the overall 2.41m arrivals in all districts including mountain resorts.Nicosia has never aspired to compete with other towns but has focused on alternative forms of tourism such as cultural and religious tourism, conferences and incentives tourism, business tourism and sports tourism.Nicosia, according to the NTB, for the general tourist is a more popular destination in the spring and autumn. The summers are simply too hot.“Tourists do come to Nicosia in the summer, for one-day trips however from others cities,” an official of the NTB told the Sunday Mail, adding that many Germans, Israelis and Russians come to visit places like the Byzantine museum and the archbishopric.According to the chairman of the Association of Cyprus Travel Agents (ACTA), Vasilis Stamataris, Nicosia remains a business centre because government services are based there, and therefore the capital’s hospitality businesses rely mostly on business trips and conferences.He said specific numbers of the day trips to Nicosia are not available as they are organised by many travel agencies or by private visitors.“Tourists rent cars and tour the island on their own, there are also private tours,” he said.But apart from its museums, galleries and cultural heritage sites it is Nicosia as the last divided capital city of Europe that attracts the visitors. Many are curious to cross to the north.“The occupied areas is something exciting as it is a ‘forbidden’ experience, and naturally it sparks the curiosity of tourists,” a source within the tourism industry said.Tour operators often take visitors to the Byzantine museumSome Nicosia shop owners near the Ledra street crossing complain that tourists just walk past them to get to the north.“That is a sensitive, political matter, no one can stop them from crossing,” the source said.But the opening of the crossings has also meant fewer visitors in Nicosia’s museums, stakeholders said.“According to my experience, there were many more visitors 20 years ago to the capital’s museums than today,” vice chair of the tourist guides’ association, Maria Aristidou, said.She put this down to the opening of the crossings but also because travel agents, to lower costs, will take their groups of visitors to just one site where entrance fees apply.“Visitors want to go to the occupied areas, they are intrigued by the oriental atmosphere,” Aristidou said, adding that northern Nicosia has more mediaeval sites than in the southern part.One bonus she has noticed is that with so many students now choosing to study at universities in Nicosia as part of student exchange programmes, there has been increased interest in tours of Nicosia.According to data from the Cyprus Museum – Cyprus’ oldest and largest archaeological museum – from the more than 84,000 visitors in 2005, the number has gradually dropped to 33,609 last year.This does not mean that tourists are not visiting Nicosia, but simply there is now more to see when they get there.“The opening of the crossing points has greatly affected museum visits, as travel agents have diversified the product. Instead of bringing tourists as in the past, to two museums in Nicosia, now it is one museum and some other site in the occupied areas,” director of the Byzantine Museum, Yiannis Eliades said.He added that last year the museum saw a 77 per cent increase in visits, but that was due to an important and popular exhibition they had on 13th century Cypriot icon painters.Many locals but also foreign nationals visited the museum for the exhibition. “We had people coming from abroad especially for the exhibition,” he said.Eliades said that the increase in overall tourist arrivals has benefited Nicosia as well, but that more efforts are needed to give the capital a further boost.Museums and cultural wealth, he said, are what keep Nicosia alive as they are the only incentive for tourists to visit.“Efforts are being made but there are construction sites all over Nicosia and there is no easy access to the old part of the town, where many museums are located,” he said.Eleftheria square – now under redevelopment for six years – “is an open wound”, Eliades said. “Who knows when works will be completed. We are asking for support.”The director of the AG Leventis Gallery, Loukia Loizou-Hadjigavriel, said that tourists who visit the gallery do not do so in organised groups but individually.“Tour operators mostly avoid visiting museums or venues with an entrance ticket,” she said, adding that foreign visitors go to the art gallery because it was mentioned in tourist guides, or for special temporary exhibitions or even because there is promotional material in their hotel.“We have special offers for guests in some hotels with a reduced entry fee. We also have a partnership with Aegean and Gold and Silver members have free entry,” Hadjigavriel said.She said that around 35 per cent to 40 per cent of their visitors are tourists. Last year, Hadjigavriel said, around 95,000 visitors visited the art gallery, including schools.“There is a steady increase of our visitors of around five to 10 per cent. Our goal is to organise a variety of events, periodic exhibitions, etc. to have recurring visitors.”But she added that compared to the overall tourist numbers few visit Nicosia, especially in the summer.“There is no good public transport from the coastal cities to Nicosia and when there is, their operation hours are prohibitive, since a tourist does not want to be in the city during the hot hours of the midday.”Crossing over to the north from Ledra street has become a major tourist attraction that does not really benefit southern NicosiaLaiki Yitonia, the traditional tourist shopping and restaurant centre of the walled city, has been hit by the competition following the development of Ledra and Onasagoras streets nearby, which now attract most of the visitors.But Nicosia’s share of the general tourist boom has meant that the first four months of 2018 have been very good for Panikos Poniros, a Laiki Yitonia shop owner.In his 16-years as shop owner, Poniros said, “this year has been one of my best seasons.”The secret to his success, he said, is that he sells products with Cypriot references and replicas of items found in museum.“I have many recurrent customers from many countries,” Poniros said.According to Aristidou, even though Nicosia cannot compete with other cities, the capital is not doing what it should to attract more visitors.“Money is being spent on the promotion of Nicosia, but does it yield results?”Walking toursTo attract more visitors, the Nicosia municipality, in cooperation with the CTO and the Tourist Guides Association offers free tours twice per week in the capital. On Monday mornings there is bus and walking tour in Pallouriotissa and Kaimakli and on Thursdays a walking tour of the old part of Nicosia and its walls.Also, on Tuesdays and Fridays, in the mornings, the Nicosia Tourism Board, in cooperation with the Tourist Guides Association, offers guided tours of the Cyprus Archaeological Museum.For more information: May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoHealthCentral.com7 Sneaky Signs of Lung CancerHealthCentral.comUndo Our View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoCyprus and Italy in hot water over tax breaks for yachtsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
