New constitution alone will not help reconciliation says President

President Maithripala Sirisena says building peace and reconciliation among the people in the country cannot be done only through enacting laws and adopting a new constitution but through religious philosophy.He requested religious leaders to take forward the program launched by the Government to build peace and brotherhood by alleviating the fear and suspicion among every community in the country. The President made these remarks while participating in a Thaipongal ceremony held at Hindu College in Payagala, Kalutara today, organized, under the program to use religious and cultural activities as a tool to promote national peace and reconciliation among school children. “It is my objective to see every community in this country living in peace and unity in a free and fair society”, he said.The President said that religious leaders of the country can fulfill more responsibilities than politicians to achieve success in the process of national reconciliation. Addressing the gathering at the ceremony the President pointed out that the divisions in communities in accordance with their race and religion should not be a barrier for the task of building the country. He also requested the Maha Sangha and Hindu, Islam and Catholic religions leader to join with the Government to lay the foundation to prevent a recurrence of the war and to strengthen the national reconciliation process.Former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga, Ministers Rajitha Senaratne, Mahinda Samarasinghe, State Ministers A.H.M. Fauzie, Chief Minister of the Western Province, Isura Devapriya, Western Provincial Council Ministers, Gamini Thilakasiri and Ranjith Somawansa, the Principal, Staff of the school, parents and others participated in the event.

Smarter stronger Mike Brewster starts anew with Jacksonville Jaguars

At the conclusion of the 2012 NFL Draft April 28, former Ohio State center Mike Brewster was still waiting on the phone call that could change his life. At the time, his NFL dreams were on hold. All 253 draft selections had come and gone, and he was not among the players selected. But Brewster did not have to wait much longer for his opportunity to play in the NFL. By the end of that same Saturday night, Brewster signed as an undrafted free agent with the Jacksonville Jaguars. As an undrafted free agent, Brewster had the opportunity to choose which team he would sign with. He told The Lantern that the Jaguars were the right team for him. “It was the best situation, as far as they didn’t draft any linemen,” Brewster said. “Their (offensive line) coaches had been in contact with me probably more than anybody. That made me feel comfortable.” As a four-year starting center for the Buckeyes, Brewster started 49 consecutive games, the second-longest streak in school history. Brewster’s former coach Luke Fickell has the longest streak at 50 straight games. In 2010, Brewster was named to the Football Writers Association of America All-American Team, and was named first-team all-Big Ten by the media. Jaguars offensive line coach Andy Heck told The Lantern that the Jaguars were “fortunate” to be able to sign Brewster as a free agent. “Every guy we bring in here is a guy that we believe can compete to make our team,” Heck said. “Mike is a guy that I think has a legitimate shot to make a team, to develop into a solid pro, and he’s going to get that opportunity here to compete, to take his game to another level. If he earns it, he’ll make the team and play.” Brewster, a native of Orlando, Fla., said returning to his home state was a big factor in his decision to go to Jacksonville. “I prayed to come home, and it happened in a mysterious way,” Brewster said. “I’m as happy as I could be. Nobody loves the state of Florida as much as I do.” Brewster could have declared for the 2011 NFL Draft following his junior season, but said he has no regrets about his decision to return to OSU for his senior year. “I grew up, learned a lot, I got smarter, I got a lot stronger, and then things just didn’t really go my way,” Brewster said. “I don’t regret it … I could have left after my junior year, but it was important for me to come back and try to help the program.” Brewster said ending up with the right team was more important to him than being drafted. “(Being drafted in the) fifth (round) and before, it’s a pretty decent signing bonus, but other than that, you just want the right fit,” Brewster said. “I was nervous that someone was just going to snatch me up in the sixth or seventh, just to take me.” Heck said Brewster will play multiple positions on the interior offensive line during this summer’s training camp and preseason as he attempts to make the Jaguars’ final 53-man roster. “We’ll give him a lot of work at center,” Heck said. “I think he’s a guy that’s got the physical makeup and mental makeup to be a center in this league. He’ll also cross-train as a guard.” Heck said he believes Brewster has the necessary mental attributes to succeed as an NFL center. “I like Mike’s intelligence, I like his demeanor,” Heck said. “I think that both of those things suit him playing an interior line position, particularly center where he’s got to really be the quarterback of the offensive line.” Heck also addressed the areas of Brewster’s game where he must improve. “He needs to work on being consistent with his gun snaps, keeping himself in better balance,” Heck said. “These are things that everybody needs to work on.” Even after going undrafted, Brewster remains confident that he will have a successful NFL career. “At the end of the day, you can either play or you can’t,” Brewster said. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a fourth-, fifth-, sixth-, seventh-round pick, undrafted … the best players are going to play. I’ll make it work, and I guarantee you I’ll be playing football for years to come.” read more

Doctors did everything they could but it was just too late Families

first_img Short URL Source: HSE Ireland/YouTubeLOVED ONES WITH friends and family who’ve died from sepsis are marking World Sepsis Day by urging people to be aware of the fatal condition. Sepsis is a life-threatening reaction to an infection where a body’s immune system attacks its own tissues and organs.About one in five people who develop sepsis will die but with early recognition and treatment the risk can be reduced.The condition can develop from any infection and can be difficult to spot so the HSE is urging people to be aware of the symptoms.  Symptoms are varied but include things like shivering, a fever, being pale or discoloured or experiencing extreme pain or discomfort. Although the condition can affect anyone, it is it is more common in the very young, the elderly or people with pre-existing conditions or a weakened immune system.To mark today and the beginning of the HSE’s Sepsis Awareness Month, several family members of those affected have spoken about their experiences of the condition. Audrey McGahon from Co Clare has spoken about her daughter Molly, who recovered from sepsis but who still faces life-altering challenges including a chronic lung condition and being left with sixteen pins in each leg due to how it affected her muscles. “Molly was at school that day. She had come home early and she just said she didn’t feel well. She had a pain in her back area so you automatically think kidneys. She did complain about being warm, so we took her temperature and it was 38.5,” Audrey explains.After going to a doctor nothing major was identified but they decided to go to a hospital, where her temperature had reached 39 degrees. Audrey explained that the nurses in the hospital were alarmed by her condition and that septic shock was identified two hours later. “Just don’t take any chances,” Audrey says, “There were no huge warnings so just don’t wait.” Source: HSE Ireland/YouTubeFormer Irish football international Stephen Carr lost his mother through sepsis and he has also spoken about the condition. “My mam just had the normal flu over the Christmas period, wasn’t really shaking it off. A week, eight days later, she was still struggling a bit,” Stephen says. After she deteriorated she was taken to hospital and diagnosed with sepsis. “I think, which we didn’t realise, she has sepsis going on. Friday 13 Sep 2019, 6:15 AM My mam was a healthy woman, she was 64 and went to the gym a good few times a week. And for it to go from that, a bit of flu, to passing away was quite a shock.  50,950 Views Source: HSE Ireland/YouTubeAs part of advice in guarding against the condition, the Dr Martina Healy of the HSE’s sepsis programme said that maintaining a healthy lifestyle and diet as well as vaccinating against the infections like the flu can all reduce the risk of sepsis. “The next most effective way is early recognition and treatment. This is not simple. Sepsis evolves over time and the pace of its development depends on the patient’s general health status, their genetic response to infection and the characteristics of the infection,” she adds.You can find out more about sepsis on the HSE’s website.  Fri 6:16 AM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 5 Comments By Rónán Duffy ‘Doctors did everything they could but it was just too late’ – Families warn about dangers of sepsis The condition can develop from any infection and can be difficult to diagnose.

Liberals call for Lemnos memorial in SA

first_imgLiberal Shadow Minister for Multicultural Affairs David Pisoni MP has called for the South Australian parliament to officially recognise the service given by Australian nurses on the Greek island of Lemnos during the Gallipoli campaign and for Greece to be acknowledged for supporting them and the Australian war effort at the military hospital there.“The Organisation of Hellene and Hellene-Cypriot Women of Australia recently commemorated the Centenary of ANZAC with their ‘Memories of Lemnos and the Australian Nurses’ contribution to ANZAC Centenary ceremonies at Keswick Barracks,” said Shadow Employment Minister David Pisoni.“I applaud this gesture by the local Greek community and believe it appropriate that both the contribution of Australian nurses and the great support given to them by the Greek people during the Gallipoli campaign and the establishment of an Australian military hospital on Lemnos be formally recognised.“It is yet another example of the significant cultural links and strong bonds of friendship between Greece and Australia.“While there is a Second World War memorial to women service personnel on King William Street there is not one dedicated to the over 3000 nurses, many from South Australia, who volunteered for active service in the First World War, 2000 of whom served overseas.“It is proper that a permanent memorial commemorating these brave Australian women be incorporated into the proposed ANZAC walk, from the North Terrace war memorial to the Pathway of Honour, and I am seeking the parliament’s support for this lasting symbol of remembrance.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Le Japon investit dans le solaire

first_imgLe Japon investit dans le solairePour faire face à l’arrêt des réacteurs nucléaires dans l’archipel, le Japon a décidé de construire la plus grande centrale solaire du pays. Celle-ci devrait être en mesure de fournir 70 mégawatts.Mardi, un consortium d’entreprises japonaises ont fait part de leur projet de construction de la plus grande centrale solaire du pays. Celle-ci devrait permettre de faire face au cruel manque d’énergie dont souffre l’archipel depuis l’accident à Fukushima. En effet, sur un parc de 54 réacteurs atomiques, un seul est encore actif, alors que la part de l’énergie nucléaire dans la production japonaise d’électricité se situait entre 25% et 30% du total avant le 11 mars 2011.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Selon les informations dévoilées, le groupe Kyocera fournira les panneaux photovoltaïques, avec l’aide de la firme d’industries lourdes IHI et de la banque Mizuho. La centrale mesurera 1,27 million de mètres carrés (l’équivalent de 27 terrains de baseball), coûtera 25 milliards de yens (235 millions d’euros) et devrait être en mesure de fournir 70 mégawatts, de quoi alimenter quelques 22 000 foyers. La construction doit démarrer en juillet.Comme le rappelle l’AFP, le manque d’énergie dû à l’accident de Fukushima avait jusqu’ici été compensé par des économies énergétiques dans tout le pays mais maintenant, le Japon se tourne vers les énergies renouvelables, solaire en tête. L’archipel cherche en effet à assurer son indépendance énergétique.Le 12 avril 2012 à 09:37 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Chelsea leading the race to sign Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain

first_imgChelsea are the frontrunners to sign Juventus’ star striker Gonzalo Higuain, with the Italian champions looking to secure the services of Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi as a replacement.The Bianconeri signed the Argentine from rivals Napoli two seasons ago for a reported fee of €90 million, but they will be willing to let him go for the right offer. Chelsea are currently leading the race for Higuain, and Juventus believe they can get around €70 million in exchange for his services, according to CalciomecartoFranck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.French Ligue 1 champions, Paris Saint Germain, are also interested in signing the 30-year-old, who has scored a total of 55 goals since his transfer to Juventus, but the Seria A giants will only let their star player depart when they find a replacement.This will represent a major investment for the Blues as they look to overhaul their squad following last season’s disappointing fifth-place finish in the English Premier League, which saw them miss out on a spot at next season’s UEFA Champions League. If the move pulls through, he will likely be reuniting with former Napoli boss, Maurizio Sarri, who has agreed in principle to take over at Chelsea next season.last_img read more

Allegri praises Dybalas performance at Old Trafford

first_imgJuventus manager Massimiliano Allegri, was thrilled about Paulo Dybala’s performance after the victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford.After Juventus’ victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford, we can now quietly confirm that Paulo Dybala was the best player on the pitch and even Massimiliano Allegri confirmed it.The Argentine player struggled to get more involved in the team’s dynamic during the start of the season, but last Tuesday, Paulo proved that he is one of the very few players who can make a great companion for Cristiano Ronaldo and that Juventus is one of the top title contenders this season without question.Dybala scored the only goal of the match and left the Red Devils against the ropes, something that very few squads have been able to accomplish in recent memory.Manager Massimiliano Allegri gave his verdict about the match, but he was especially happy with Paulo’s performance.“I thought that he [Dybala] put in a great performance, I have to say,” Allegri told a press conference via Four Four Two.“He was playing well beforehand in previous games. He didn’t play on Saturday [against Genoa] because he picked up a bit of a knock to his knee on international duty.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“So he didn’t play, came back and did ever so well I thought.”“I thought it was a period of the game when we needed to have fresh legs. We needed to stretch the opposition, stretch the game out,” he added about Dybala’s substitution.“I took him off first and then I took off [Juan] Cuadrado and then I took off [Joao] Cancelo and I think the substitutions, all three came on and did a very good job.”Relive last night’s great #UCL win in 📸’s 👉 #MUFCJuve #ForzaJuve— JuventusFC (@juventusfcen) October 24, 2018last_img read more

Trump travel ban weakened further

first_img.A US federal judge weakened the terms of the Trump administration’s controversial travel ban on visitors from six majority-Muslim countries, dealing another legal setback to the government.Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii ruled Thursday that grandparents and some other relatives of people in the United States should be exempt from the clampdown, saying the terms of the ban as enforced defied common sense.His decision was hailed as a victory by opponents of the ban, who say it singles out Muslims in violation of the US constitution.The administration of president Donald Trump insists the restrictions are necessary to keep out terrorists.The US Supreme Court had allowed part of the ban to go into effect on 29 June, putting an end, at least temporarily, to five months of politically charged skirmishes in the lower courts.Specifically, the court allowed a 90-day ban on visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, and a 120-day ban on refugees, with exceptions for people with “close family relationships” in the United States.The Trump administration defined that to be parents, spouses, children, sons- and daughters-in-law, siblings and step- and half-siblings.‘Narrowly defined list’ -But Watson found that “the government’s narrowly defined list finds no support in the careful language of the Supreme Court or even in the immigration statutes on which the Government relies.“Common sense, for instance, dictates that close family members be defined to include grandparents,” he wrote.“Indeed, grandparents are the epitome of close family members. The government’s definition excludes them. That simply cannot be.”Watson ordered Homeland Security and the State Department not to enforce the ban on “grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins of persons in the United States.”The judge also ruled that refugees who had assurances of a placement by a resettlement agency in the United States should also be exempt.Such an assurance “meets each of the Supreme Court’s touchstones: it is formal, it is a documented contract, it is binding, it triggers responsibilities and obligations, including compensation, it is issued specific to an individual refugee only when that refugee has been approved for entry by the Department of Homeland Security, and it is issued in the ordinary course, and historically has been for decades,” Watson wrote.“Bona fide does not get any more bona fide than that.”Douglas Chin, attorney general for the state of Hawaii, which filed the lawsuit against the Trump administration, welcomed the ruling.“The federal court today makes clear that the US Government may not ignore the scope of the partial travel ban as it sees fit,” said Chin.“Family members have been separated and real people have suffered enough. Courts have found that this Executive Order has no basis in stopping terrorism and is just a pretext for illegal and unconstitutional discrimination.”The Departments of Homeland Security, State and Justice did not immediately respond to requests for comment early Friday.Under the version of the travel ban allowed to go forward by the Supreme Court, citizens from the six targeted countries with “bona fide” ties to the United States-such as a job or acceptance to a university-are permitted entry.The high court will review the overall case in October, after both bans on travelers and refugees have largely run their course.While the ban itself did not single out Muslims, judges in lower courts had cited Trump’s repeated statements during last year’s presidential race that he intended to ban Muslims from entering the United States.His original measure, issued by executive order in January, set off chaos and protests at airports and was almost immediately blocked by the courts.last_img read more

Lego Worlds is Legos Final Video Game Form

first_img If you have a Nintendo Switch, chances are you also have The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The new Zelda is a massive, phenomenal game that you can and should play for dozens of hours. But eventually, you’re going to want to play something new on your Nintendo console/handheld hybrid. Switch Games That Aren’t Zelda is a new column highlighting cool, smaller Switch games to check out once you’ve saved Hyrule.On the surface, Lego Worlds shares some things with the other Lego games from TT Games. Beyond just also being made of Lego bricks, the controls and the economy behave in pretty much the same way they do in those ubiquitous family action-adventure games. But its core gameplay philosophy is such a radical shift for the series, one that took two years on Steam Early Access to crack, that Lego Worlds feels like Lego games finally approaching their final form, especially now on Nintendo Switch.It wouldn’t be inaccurate to call Lego Worlds a partial rip-off of the mega-popular Minecraft. But surely Minecraft owes a huge debt to Lego toys’ proven popularity with children for decades. So they kind of cancel each other out. Like Minecraft, a huge part of Lego Worlds involves constructing and exploring new spaces around you. You can even use a first-person view, which is kind wild for a Lego game. It doesn’t have the hardcore survival elements, which were never my favorite part of Minecraft anyway, but when things start feeling too casual you can always go fight some undead mini-figures that rise out of the ground.Meanwhile, because I’ve been playing with Lego a lot longer than I’ve been playing with Minecraft, I was immediately more familiar with the grammar of Lego Worlds’ robust building tools. You can choose from a vast library of bricks and lay each one down individually to sculpt your masterpiece. But you can also take helpful shortcuts like copying entire chunks, recoloring with a paint gun, raising or lowering the landscape, and assembling prefab kits. You can even add bricks with elemental properties like burning lava or water to swim through.Lego Worlds strikes the best balance it can between giving you tools powerful enough to make the specific Lego constructions you want but also intuitive enough to make manipulating pieces in 3D space not totally tedious. It doesn’t always succeed. Using sticks and buttons to make sure pieces are always lined up isn’t something you can do without paying constant close attention, and it’s annoying. But overall this is a fine execution of the fantastic concept of building virtual Lego sandboxes.However, the other game Lego Worlds resembles explains its other, arguably much more exciting mechanics. Besides building whatever you want, you can also fly wherever you want to an infinite number of randomized Lego worlds like in No Man’s Sky.To achieve this, each world draws from the same pool of biomes. You might find an eerie green swamp world or a scrap yard world full of cars stacked on top of each other. But the geography can change enough to make even similar environments feel unique. There’s a difference between one big landmass of cowboy prairies and an archipelago of them. Bigger worlds tend to feature multiple biomes in one, connected via nifty caves. I traveled across safari lands, candy kingdoms, and pirate hideouts all on the same planet I named “Who Needs Consistency?” And the aesthetic pleasure of inhabiting diverse worlds made entirely of Lego, unlike in other Lego games, never gets old.On each world, you’re also encouraged to catalog its unique objects with your discovery gun. By spending some in-game money, you can then summon that object at will. I found a fire monster named Burnard I could ride on in a lava world, and later summoned him to fend off polar bears in the snow. I could also discover new costumes for myself, like a winged gargoyle, some nightmare clown named Jestro, or a random selection of pieces that eerily ended up resembling Richard Branson. Steadily gaining access to all sorts of new vehicles and animals and items makes Lego Worlds tough to put down.Finally unlocked Richard Branson in Lego Worlds #NintendoSwitch— Jordan Minor (@JordanWMinor) September 17, 2017For me, seeing what might pop up on a new world and gathering its resources was motivation enough to keep exploring. But there’s also the larger goal of completing random quests on each world to earn gold bricks and increase your rank. A higher rank lets you visit new worlds and unlock special items like a camera or versatile grappling gun.If I can compare Lego Worlds to one more game, the wanderlust and unbridled movement reminded me of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, another game that proves the Switch is great for dipping into huge yet portable worlds on the go. Leaping into a canyon on my skeleton horse with space blaster drawn to shoot ghost miners is totally something Link would do. There’s even a Tingle-esque roaming hot balloon merchant who might sell you a health upgrade or a sick guitar.Unfortunately, the quests themselves are pretty bland on a gameplay level, probably because the game has to procedurally generate a theoretically infinite amount of them. They’re pretty much endless simple tutorials for your various tools. Build this safe house. Summon this pig. Paint this lollipop. Conversely, sometimes the game’s general jankiness makes it tough to figure out what the task even is. The peaceful British narrator can’t explain everything. However, the beauty of Lego Worlds’ scope and freedom is that you aren’t forced to stick with any one tedious task if you don’t want to. Just fly off to a new world and try something else.If you have no interest in the adventure whatsoever, you can abandon it entirely for a free build mode that gives you everything up front. You can also team up with a friend. But while the option for pure creativity is appreciated, especially for kids who have the time on their hands to take advantage of it. For me the carrot on a stick of unlocking new things on new worlds was enough to keep Lego Worlds a consistent recurring background game for me in a way Minecraft (or No Man’s Sky to be honest) never did.I want Lego Worlds to now become the platform for all future Lego games, kind of like what Lego Dimensions was trying to be. The Classic Space DLC pack adds awesome spaceships and a neat 1969 Moon landing look (faked by Stanley KuBRICK?). Ninjago is also coming. But I want to see more of that. Maybe it would be a nightmare for #brands, but I want to digitally dump all my Star Wars and Marvel and Sonic the Hedgehog Lego toys in here. I want to pull them apart and rebuild them however I want. That’s what Lego the toys are all about, and with Lego Worlds, that is what Lego the games can finally be all about, too.Want to learn more?

first_imgWindows 10 reserved storage explained by Martin Brinkmann on January 08, 2019 in Windows – Last Update: January 08, 2019 – 17 commentsMicrosoft revealed today that it plans to integrate a feature called reserved storage in Windows 10 version 1903, the next feature update of the operating system.Windows 10 will set aside some available storage automatically so that it is  used exclusively by the operating system.Through reserved storage, some disk space will be set aside to be used by updates, apps, temporary files, and system caches.Microsoft wants to improve the reliability of “critical OS functions” that rely on disk space, e.g. updating or caching, by reserving disk space.Existing devices won’t have the reserved storage functionality enabled by default; new Windows 10 version 1903 installations and systems that come pre-installed with that particular version of Windows 10 — and future versions — will make use of reserved storage automatically.Microsoft notes that reserved storage will set aside about 7 Gigabytes of space; not a lot if Windows is installed on a device with lots of free storage but quite a lot if it is on a device with 16 or 32 Gigabytes of storage space.The 7 Gigabytes that Windows 10 will reserve initially may change over time, and Windows 10 may use other space if the reserved storage is out of space.The size depends on two major factors — optional features and installed languages — which are used to determine the reserved space.Windows 10 users can check the size of reserved storage by going to Settings > System > Storage > Show more categories > System & Reserved. There you find listed the reserved storage that Windows 10 has set aside.Administrators may reduce the size of reserved storage by removing optional features or languages, if installed. Reserved Storage may increase if additional features or languages are installed on a device.It is not possible, however,  to remove reserved storage from the operating system. It is unclear if that means that reserved storage cannot be disabled anymore once activated, or if that just means that data that is stored in the reserved storage area cannot be removed by users.Windows 10 will delete files in reserved storage regularly when they are not needed anymoreMicrosoft published the following instructions to enable Reserved Storage on Windows 10 Insider Builds:Right-click the Windows icon on the taskbar, search for Registry Editor, and Open it.If prompted, select Yes to allow the app to make changes to your device.Select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ReserveManager.Right click ShippedWithReserves to modify and update the value to “1.”After you upgrade the device to the next available build, you will be using reserved storage!A value of 1 means that Reserved Storage space is enabled, a value of 0 that it is not enabled.It remains to be seen if it is possible to set the value to 0 on devices that come with Reserved Storage enabled to disable the feature and free up space.How does it work?Microsoft’s explanation on Technet falls a bit short as it is not clear just from reading the article how Windows 10 reserves the storage space. Craig Barkhouse explains in a comment that Microsoft created a solution that adds “new support” for that to the NTFS file system.The idea is NTFS provides a mechanism for the servicing stack to specify how much space it needs reserved, say 7GB. Then NTFS reserves that 7GB for servicing usage only.Barkhouse notes that the main drive will report the available space and that the reserved storage is subtracted automatically from that.Closing WordsThe use of reserved storage should improve the reliability and stability of certain processes, e.g. updating; that is a good thing but the whole feature may make low storage devices running Windows 10 even less appealing than they are already.Now You: What is your take on Reserved Storage?SummaryArticle NameWindows 10 reserved storage explainedDescriptionMicrosoft revealed today that it plans to integrate a feature called reserved storage in Windows 10 version 1903, the next feature update of the operating system.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Tourism Australia Indigenous short film aims to increase international tourism numbers

first_imgTourism Australia has launched a new, short film aimed at encouraging more domestic and international visitors to include Indigenous tourism experiences as part of an Australian holiday.Entitled ‘Aboriginal Australia: Our Country is waiting for you’, the film was created in collaboration with renowned Australian filmmakers Brendan Fletcher and Warwick Thornton and tells the story of Australia’s unique Indigenous tourism offerings.Developed in partnership with Austrade, the film features a diverse range of Indigenous activities, adventures and immersive cultural experiences which can be enjoyed in the Red Centre and Outback, lush rainforests and tropics as well as in cities and urban environments.One of the misconceptions that the film aims to dispel is that Indigenous tourism experiences can only be found in hot, dry and remote areas.Australian directors Brendan Fletcher (Mad Bastards) and Warwick Thornton (best known for his work on acclaimed movies Samson and Delilah and The Sapphires), worked closely with nine Indigenous tourism operators from four states and territories across Australia.Tourism Australia Managing Director, John O’Sullivan, said the film aimed to increase awareness, interest and participation in Indigenous tourism experiences across Australia.“Australia’s Indigenous experiences are a unique and important part of our tourism offering. Currently, 14% of our international visitors participate in an Aboriginal cultural experience during their trip, helping to inject USD 6.4 billion annually into our visitor economy.“We’re confident this new short film and our plans to make sure it is widely distributed both in Australia and overseas, will help promote this important facet of Australian tourism and grow these figures,” O’Sullivan added.The film will be shown in Australia and a number of Tourism Australia’s key international markets, including China, Germany, Indonesia, Malaysia, South Korea, the UK and the U.S. where it is expected to be seen on TV, online and in cinemas by more than 50 million people over the next few weeks.The film has already received strong backing from the tourism industry, including airports (Sydney Airport), international airlines (Etihad Airways and Virgin Australia) and hotel groups (AccorHotels Australia and IHG) who have all agreed to provide a platform to show the film to their passengers, guests and employees.last_img read more

first_img What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation “If we’re playing with those two guys it’s because they’ve earned it and I’m okay with that.”Arizona Sports’ Kyndra de St. Aubin contributed to this report Arizona Cardinals Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt is not going to let the recent rash of injuries distract the team from focusing on the ultimate goal: Super Bowl. “It’s part of the game,” Whisenhunt said of injuries. “It happens all over the league.”After news broke that CB Greg Toler will be out for the season, Whisenhunt cited last season’s champions as an example of a team playing through injuries. D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away “You look at Green Bay last year,” said Whisenhunt, “they had a number of injuries and they seemed to come through it okay.”The fact that the coach used Green Bay as an example of who he will compare his team to is another sign of this 2011 Cardinals team showing fans that it has high hopes for the season. “You get to a point where young guys gotta play and gotta step up,” said Whisenhunt. With Toler out the Cardinals could look to add another veteran to the defensive backfield, but A.J. Jefferson and Patrick Peterson are proving they deserve playing time. “I definitely feel good about A.J. and Patrick,” said Whisenhunt. “I don’t think there is any panic.”Peterson made an impact in Saturday’s preseason game when he returned an interception 34-yards for a touchdown. Whisenhunt provided another vote of confidence to the rookie cornerback.“There’s no question he’s a talented young player,” the coach said. “I don’t think it’s a question of if, it’s just a question of when.”Whisenhunt had no problem discussing the possibility of starting a second year player and a rookie at the cornerback positions.
