When you take into consideration the resources, manpower, and active attention to detail necessary to bring a regular PC game online for multiplayer, you expect there to be some hiccups for a game that is extraordinary. During the open beta weekend for Diablo III, there was no shortage of trouble actually getting online to play the game. It was free, and everyone wanted to play, so it made sense that the game would struggle. Plus, the teams at Blizzard used that weekend to determine how many people would fit on a single server, and the logistics involved in making sure those servers were accessible for launch day.When the UK servers went online today, it was reported that over 200,000 players attempted to login during the first 30 minutes. According to Blizzard, that’s 100,000 less than were online concurrently during the open beta. At 12:01 PDT, the US servers opened their gates to receive the onslaught of eager Diablo III players. For many, however, it seems that the most difficult boss they have encountered so far has been the login screen.Many users, myself included, were presented with a handful of error codes and were completely unable to login to the game at all. After 20 minutes of attempting to gain access, I was presented with the hero creation screen, but was unable to create a hero or move forward in any way. After several hero creation attempts, the game crashed and I was forced to start the login process over again.A quick glance at my social networks revealed that I was far from the only one. Angry tweets about error 37 and error 3006 filled Twitter and Google+, and it seemed that very few users were able to login at all. The Blizzard customer service Twitter account was hard at work doing as much damage control as possible. The only real advice that could be given was to wait awhile and try again. In some cases, it was recommended that your router and modem be power cycled, which in all likelihood was just an addition to the stall tactic. Finally, as though a switch had been thrown, it seemed like some users were able to access the game.In fact, a switch had been thrown. The Diablo Twitter account explains that all of the Blizzard related websites had been temporarily brought offline so that more users could access the game. For nearly two hours all of the Blizzard websites and their forums remained offline. Once the volume of users had slowed, the sites were brought back online.While traffic may have gone down a bit, as soon as I logged out of Diablo III I found myself unable to log back in. The familiar 3006 error rearing its ugly head once again. As of right now, Blizzard is still recommending patience, with no active plan to fix these issues in the near term. Once the early rush of the game subsides, and a more even flow of traffic is created, these kinds of issues won’t really exist.As of right now, Blizzard has announced that their customer support lines will remain open 24/7 to help anyone who has any problems, as well as their Battle.net forums and social network accounts.If and when you do get in to play, be very careful as a game-breaking bug has been discovered. If you played the beta, you’ll be very familiar with the first part of Act I. Your first real NPC companion, the Templar, allows you to exchange weapons and armor with him to make him more useful. If you equip the Templar with a shield, you are immediately booted from the game, and unable to log back in. Unfortunately, there is no fix for this until Blizzard offers a patch for the game, so sit tight if this has happened to you.Hopefully, by the end of the Diablo III launch day here in the US, Blizzard will have worked out these kinks and it will be smooth sailing in the Burning Hells.
Japanese scientists have successfully tested a space cannon that will be used to blast a hole in an asteroid as part of an upcoming mission. The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) will use the weapon to gather extensive data about the composition of asteroid 1999JU3 that could not be obtained by simply scanning the undisturbed surface. This successful test sets up a launch for next year.The space cannon is to be mounted on the Hayabusa-2 vehicle, which will carry it to the asteroid, which orbits between Earth and Mars. This is essentially a kinetic impact weapon that relies on an explosive charge to launch a 4lb slug into the surface. The spacecraft will release the weapon, allowing it to float downward while it takes cover on the opposite side of 1999JU3.The detonation will be triggered remotely before Hayabusa-2 circles back to the impacted side of the body. After the damage is done, the probe will land and scoop up debris from the impact to bring back to Earth.1999JU3 is a 1000 meter C-type asteroid that interests scientists mainly because it is thought to have been altered very little since the formation of the solar system. Researchers hope to find water and organic material from the early solar system in the material gathered from 1999JU3. This data could shed light on how planets form and life arises.The asteroid is currently scheduled for a mid-2018 blasting, with the probe making it back to Earth around 2020.
By Sulayman BahGambia sensation Musa Barrow was not unleashed on full scale but still got some minutes under his belt in yesterday evening’s stalemate.Summoned in as teammate Pasalic’s replacement in the 74th minute, the former Hawks and U-20 striker had a chance to deliver.It came at a time when his Colombian rival for the forward role Zapata was rendered unfit for the tie.Musa starred but was unable to put his side ahead against fourth-placed Inter Milan.The 21-year-old has played only twenty-times this campaign with just six of those as a starter.
Former Rangers player Derek Johnstone believes Aberdeen home defeat is a momentary setback for the team and that they will get past it to remain in title contention.Derek told Evening Times:“They had one chance and scored. How people can say they were the better team, I don’t know.”“Defensively, yes. They got everyone back behind the ball and defended well, but Joe Lewis has made three or four great saves.”“I thought Rangers were poor, there was nobody that got pass marks, Allan McGregor aside because he had no chance with the goal and little to do after that.”“You can’t go through the game performing like that and expect to beat Aberdeen. If you don’t have the majority of players getting pass marks, you won’t win the game.”Rangers is still behind Celtic: John Hartson Manuel R. Medina – September 3, 2019 According to the former Celtic player, there’s still a massive gap between his ex-club and Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.“A lot of the fans got excited after the win over Hearts and then they feel like they are back down with a bump following the Aberdeen game.”“You have got to remember where Rangers were starting from and everyone knows that we have still got a bit to do.”“If you want to win leagues, you need to be consistent. You might not be at your best every week, but you don’t let your performances drop below a level and you win game after game after game.”“As it turned out, Rangers had a chance to go clear on Wednesday night and it was a real opportunity missed, unfortunately.”“Rangers are going to have their ups and downs over the season and there is no doubt that was a major down for everyone against Aberdeen.”“The important thing now is how the players react and the manager will leave them in no doubt about what is required when they head to Dundee this weekend.”

GIBRALTAR: Iran on Thursday condemned the “illegal interception” of one of its oil tankers in Gibraltar where authorities said they suspected it was carrying crude to Syria in violation of EU sanctions. The detention of the 330 metre (1,000 feet) Grace 1 vessel comes at a sensitive time in Iran-EU ties as the bloc mulls how to respond to Tehran announcing it will breach the maximum uranium enrichment level it agreed to in a 2015 nuclear deal. Also Read – EAM Jaishankar calls on European Parliament President David Sassoli Advertise With Us Iran summoned the British ambassador in protest. “After the illegal interception of an Iranian oil tanker in the strait of Gibraltar by the English naval force, that country’s ambassador to Tehran was summoned to the foreign ministry,” the ministry’s spokesman Abbas Moussavi said in Tehran. However, White House National Security Advisor John Bolton applauded the interception of the supertanker. Also Read – This is why Denmark, Sweden and Germany are considering a meat tax Advertise With Us “Excellent news: UK has detained the supertanker Grace I laden with Iranian oil bound for Syria in violation of EU sanctions,” Bolton tweeted. The Grace 1 tanker was halted in the early hours of Thursday by police and customs agencies in Gibraltar, a tiny overseas British territory on Spain’s southern tip. They were aided by a detachment of British Royal Marines. Advertise With Us ‘We welcome this firm action’ The ship was detained 2.5 miles (four kilometres) south of Gibraltar in what it considers British waters, although Spain, which lays claim to the territory, says they are Spanish. It was boarded when it slowed down in a designated area used by shipping agencies to ferry goods to vessels. “We have reason to believe that the ‘Grace 1’ was carrying its shipment of crude oil to the Banyas Refinery in Syria,” Gibraltar’s Chief Minister Fabian Picardo said in a statement. “That refinery is the property of an entity that is subject to European Union sanctions against Syria. “We have detained the vessel and its cargo,” Picardo said. Spanish Foreign Minister Josep Borrell told reporters the vessel was detained at the request of the United States. Picardo said he had “written this morning to the Presidents of the European Commission and Council, setting out the details of the sanctions which we have enforced”. In a statement, Britain’s foreign office said “we welcome this firm action by the Gibraltarian authorities, acting to enforce the EU Syria Sanctions regime”. EU notified European Union sanctions against war-torn Syria have been in force since late 2011. The 28-member bloc has imposed sanctions on Syrian officials including government ministers over their role in the “violent repression” of civilians. It has frozen the assets of around 70 entities and introduced an embargo on Syrian oil, investment restrictions and a freeze on Syrian central bank assets within the European Union. According to specialised shipping trade publication Lloyd’s List, which analysed vessel-tracking data, the 1997-built ship is laden with Iranian oil, the first such tanker to head for Europe since late 2018. It reported that the ship loaded oil off Iran in April and sailed around the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. The tanker detention comes just days after Iran announced it would exceed the uranium enrichment limit set up as part of the 2015 deal to avoid it building up to the level required for a nuclear warhead. Iran did this in response to Washington abandoning the nuclear deal last year and hitting Iran’s crucial oil exports and financial transactions with biting sanctions.
The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) on Tuesday predicted heavy rainfall for Telangana from July 25. The IMD officials attributed the reason for the rainfall is due to the trough from upper air cyclonic circulation lied over South Coastal Andhra Pradesh and neighbourhood. As there is a chance of formation of the low-pressure area formed over the coastal area of West Bengal, the state may witness rainfall in isolated places across all the districts. On the other hand, the temperature in several districts touched to 36 degrees. Bhadrachalam has recorded the highest of 36.4 degrees followed by Khammam at 35.6 degrees.

Zuckerberg used his Facebook profile Tuesday for a fundraiser for the Texas Civil Rights Project, a group that has been providing legal aid to affected immigrants. “We need to stop this policy right now,” he said.Facebook had become an important platform of support for groups fighting the policy even before Zuckerberg spoke out Tuesday. Raices, a Texas-based legal aid group, has seen a windfall of support after a private fundraiser in support of the group went viral over the weekend. Originally set up to raise just $1500, the fundraising campaign has now surpassed $5 million from more than 123,000 individual donors.In addition to Cook, Wojcicki and Zuckerberg, a number of other tech CEOs has also spoken out against the family separations policy. Jeff Lawson, CEO of the publicly traded communications platform Twilio, even went as far as calling the policy a war crime Monday.“As a tech leader and public CEO, I’m often advised to stay apolitical,” Lawson wrote on Medium. “But this isn’t politics, I believe this is a matter of objective right and wrong. Staying silent doesn’t feel like leadership to me. I encourage other leaders to consider the cost of silence.”Update: 1:25pm: This post was updated with a statement from Google CEO Sundar Pichai. Pichai called the stories and images of families being separated “gut-wrenching” in a tweet Tuesday afternoon, and called on the government to find “a better, more humane way that is reflective of our values as a nation.” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Kolkata: The state government in collaboration with Kolkata Port Trust (KoPT) has been able to prevent the oil spill from the vessel MV SSL Kolkata that had emerged as a threat to the ecosystem of the Sunderbans after it caught fire in the Bay of Bengal on the night of June 13.”More than 90 percent of the oil in the ship has been successfully extracted and the remaining work will be completed within 10 days’ time,” a relieved senior official of the state Forest department who has been supervising the entire operation said. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeApart from being a threat to the ecology and the river and sea creatures, if the oil had actually spilt over, it could have mingled with the water and travelled to human habitat areas of Gosaba and others. “So extracting oil out of the ill-fated vessel was our top priority,” the official added. There was 400 tonne of furnace oil loaded in the affected ship. A drill was made in the oil tanks of the affected ship and after extraction, oil was transferred through a pipeline to another vessel that was stationed at a safe distance from the affected ship. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedIt may be mentioned that the state Forest department has provided all sorts of logistics to the Singapore-based company that was roped in by KoPT for extracting oil from the affected ship. The District Magistrate of South 24-Parganas has been acting as the nodal officer for the entire operation and the district administration had also mobilised people from the adjoining villages who helped employees from the shipping company in emptying the oil barrels. State Chief Secretary Malay De organised meetings time to time with the concerned agencies like KoPT Indian Coast Guard, Indian Airforce and top officials of the Forest department to keep a stock of the progress. Initially, all the stakeholders had laid emphasis on transfer of oil with the threat of spilling looming large. Hence, the efforts to tow the ship to the bank was overlooked. “Now, the ship had sunk so deep into the sea soil that it cannot be moved from the spot. So the remains of the ship will gradually sink into the water. This will result in water pollution but the effect will be much less than the oil spill,” a senior official in the district administration said.
One major phenomenon that has been witnessed over the last few decades is the explosion of technology and technological advancements. In order to reverse and combat the disasters that we have instigated, ‘Genetic engineering’ and its allied fields have been considered in the highest regard and many efforts have been put to encourage people to use this technology for the betterment of the world.And to do the same, many events, conferences, ideations, competition, etc. have been organized to motivate people. One such renowned affair is the iGEM, International Genetically Engineered Machine, an annual event and a competition on synthetic biology and its interdisciplinary fields. It is a platform where various teams from all over the world showcase their projects to each other, learn from each other and also show their contribution to the scientific community and the general society. This event happens during the month of October, in MIT, Boston, USA. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfA team from Vellore Institute of Technology decided to take up an underrated global phenomenon called Ocean Acidification, that has been affecting the world’s oceans, and the associated estuaries and waterways, and is using iGEM as a platform to come up with a way tackle this issue. The Team, who call themselves iGEM VIT, is working on a novel idea to tackle this major environmental disaster, where the pH of oceans is gradually decreasing and becoming acidic. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe root cause of the problem is the increase in CO2 levels over years, which is absorbed by seawater. Ocean Acidification is a major issue throughout the world and the effects are majorly felt and clearly seen in the areas where there are coral reefs. The studies on ocean acidification are have just started and full-scale consequence of this phenomenon has not yet been fully understood and predicted. The team started working on this issue after realizing the depth of the problem and the possible side effects of ocean acidification. The team’s ideology to tackle the problem from the root led to the beginning of the team’s six-month journey of research and development way to tackle this issue started. The Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India, selects five best teams with the most deserving projects, across India, in a competition called Indian Biological Engineering Competition (iBEC), and gives a grant of ten lakhs per team for them to participate in iGEM. For the very first time, a team from VIT, Vellore, bagged a place in the iBEC list of sponsored teams and won 10 lakhs to carry forward their project successfully. The iGEM VIT team, along with their Primary Investigator, Dr R Siva Professor, and Head, Department of Biotechnology VIT is working on developing a genetically engineered bacterium that can stabilize the pH of the ocean. Theoretically, when these bacteria are let into the ocean waters, it can stabilize the local pH and hence has the capacity to normalize the pH of the ocean when done on a large scale. The project can be used as an immediate, efficient, and economical way to provide a holistic and on-site solution to what is considered one of the major environmental problems of the modern day. Apart from the laboratory work, the team has taken the initiative to speak to local and international experts in the field and attended conferences to understand the problem in depth. They have also taken the initiative to spread awareness about this problem by conducting a beach clean-up, collaborating with other teams participating in iGEM. They are calling this project Toggle pH and are presenting their idea at MIT, Boston this month at the iGEM Jamboree, happening in the last week of October.
Source = THAI Airways International THAI announces 2016 operating resultsTHAI announces 2016 operating resultsThai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI) and its subsidiaries announced an operating profit of THB 4,071 million (412.2% better than the same period last year) after deduction of maintenance provision for operating lease aircraft, special expense related to the transformation plan, and impairment loss of assets and aircraft. The total amount of these items was THB 6,173 million while gain on foreign currency exchange was THB 685 million resulting in a net profit of THB 47 million, which was an improvement from the THB 13,047 million loss in the same period last year.Mrs. Usanee Sangsingkeo, THAI Executive Vice President of Aviation Business Unit, and Acting President, said that THAI continued to implement its second phase of the transformation plan “Strength Building” in 2016 by embarking on four main strategies:1) generating aggressive revenue,2) reducing cost and increasing efficiencies,3) building capabilities for sustainable growth, and4) creating excellent quality of service.THAI implemented these tasks by using information technology with international standards to enhance revenue management and to implement its new business class service, to launch new routes: Bangkok-Tehran, Iran, Phuket-Frankfurt, to resume the Bangkok-Moscow route, to add flight frequencies in Europe, and continuation of last year’s MSP program.Furthermore, THAI adjusted its fleet strategy by taking delivery of 2 Airbus A350-900XWB aircraft that primarily operate on intercontinental routes while it decommissioned 2 Boeing 777-200 operating lease aircraft on 31 December 2016 with 95 aircraft remaining in the fleet, which is the same amount as the end of the previous year but with improved aircraft utilization. Consequently, product traffic (ASK) of THAI and its subsidiaries increased by 1.9% while passenger traffic (RPK) increased by 2.5%. The average cabin factor was 73.4% higher than last year which was 72.9% with 22.3 million passengers carried, representing a 4.8% increase from last year.As a result of development in various areas based on the strategic plan and satisfactory success of the organization’s transformation, there was an overall improvement in customer satisfaction evident from various awards that the Company received. In addition, the financial performance in 2016 of THAI and its subsidiaries showed an operating profit of THB 4,071 million compared to last year’s loss of THB 1,304 million or 412.2%, a vast improvement from last year mainly because total expense decreased by 7.1% from the decrease in fuel expense by THB 17,907 million (28.3%) resulting from the jet fuel prices that dropped by 21.6% and improved fuel risk management, net finance cost reduced by THB 431 million (7.7%) due to efficient cash management and financial restructure, while non-fuel operating expense increased by THB 4,773 million (3.9%) mostly due to increase in maintenance and overhaul expenses. Total revenue decreased by THB 8,190 million (4.3%). Passenger and excess baggage revenue reduced by THB 4,428 million (2.9%) due to fuel surcharge adjustment while other revenue reduced by THB 3,775 million since last year, the main reason being that last year THAI received insurance compensation from the delayed delivery of economy class seats at the amount of THB 3,968 million.In 2016, THAI and its subsidiaries had a one-time cost item that resulted from aircraft maintenance based on actual conditions of aircraft and maintenance contractual obligations of THB 1,317 million, transformation plan expenses of THB 1,228 million, and impairment loss of assets and aircraft of THB 3,628 million but had a THB 685 million gain on foreign currency exchange. Consequently, THAI and its subsidiaries reported a net profit of THB 47 million. Profit attributable to owners of the parent amounted to THB 15 million. Profit per share was THB 0.01 or 100.2% higher than last year’s loss per share of THB 5.99.As of 31 December 2016, total assets were THB 283,124 million, a decrease of THB 19,347 million (6.4%) from 31 December 2015, mainly due to short-term and long-term repayment, additional provision of impairment of aircraft and aircraft sold during the year. Total liabilities as of 31 December 2016 totaled THB 249,536 million, a decrease of THB 20,009 million (7.4%) from 31 December 2015. Total shareholders’ equity amounted to THB 33,588 million, an increase of THB 662 million (2.0%). Fly THAIbook here now
Census Bureau Construction Housing Starts Residential Data 2016-05-17 Staff Writer in Daily Dose, Data, Government, Headlines, News Single-Family Housing Starts Make a Comeback Home building in the U.S. picked up again in April after reaching the slowest pace in seven months, easing some of the previous concern surrounding the construction sector.The U.S. Census Bureau and the HUD on Tuesday jointly released new residential construction statistics for April 2016. The report showed that privately-owned housing starts rose 6.6 percent from March’s rate of 1,099,000 to 1,172,000 in April at a seasonally adjusted annual rate. However, year-over-year, housing starts are down 1.7 percent from last April’s rate of 1,192,000.Meanwhile, single-family housing starts were at a rate of 778,000 in April, up 3.3 percent from the March figure of 753,000, the Bureau and HUD reported.”On a three-month moving average basis, single-family starts have been effectively flat since February, despite recent monthly volatility,” said Robert Dietz, Chief Economist at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). “NAHB expects growth in single-family construction in the months ahead, given ongoing strength in the labor market and favorable demographics. Consistent with this forecast, single-family permits are running 8.4 percent higher in April than a year prior.””April usually sees a big increase in starts over March in the non-seasonally adjusted number as the weather is normally more hospitable to construction on site across the country,” said Realtor.com Chief Economist Jonathan Smoke. “This year’s increase of 21 percent is less than last year’s 36 percent but otherwise is the strongest April increase in 20 years.”Brian Betzler, Regional Sales Manager for TD Bank (based in Florida) said in response to today’s report, “Following a sharp slowdown in the first quarter, housing starts made a comeback in April. This rebound puts sales back on track for the ongoing recovery of the housing market.”Privately-owned housing units authorized by building permits rose 3.6 percent from March’s rate of 1,077,000 to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1,116,000 in April. However, building permits are down 5.3 percent year-over-year. Single-family authorizations in April were at a rate of 736,000, 1.5 percent above the revised March figure of 725,000. Authorizations of units in buildings with five units or more were at a rate of 348,000 in April, the report said.According to the Bureau and HUD, privately-owned housing completions fell 11 percent from March’s estimate of 1,048,000 to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 933,000 in April. Completions are also down 7.4 percent from the April 2015 rate of 1,008,000. Single-family housing completions are down 3.6 percent from the revised March rate of 717,000 to 691,000 in April. The April rate for units in buildings with five units or more was 232,000.”It remains highly likely that the less severe winter this year pulled forward more activity into February, leading to last month’s disappointing March. It is good to see that April reversed that temporary decline in total activity,” Smoke said. “However, the declining year-over-year trend in multi-family construction looks to be real and reflects caution by developers to maintain the historically high level of apartment and condominium construction. Since household formation is outpacing completions, a lower level of multi-family new construction activity will keep vacancies low and will likely maintain above-average increases in rents.”The Collingwood Group Chairman Tim Rood identified a few warning signs associated with the homeownership rate in today’s residential report.“The homeownership rate now is around 63 percent—the lowest in 50 years,” Rood said. “It will likely be at or near 60 percent in a year’s time as the seriously delinquent population ends with a foreclosure or foreclosure alternative that results in a family no longer owning a home. That’s a slippery slope. If we can’t give first time homebuyers a shot at homeownership. When and/if the homeownership rate drops below 60 percent it could be a falling knife and create real pressure on home value.”Click here to view the full report. May 17, 2016 722 Views Share
