JVP accuses TNA of using communal issue for votes

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) today accused the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) of attempting to incite communal hatred in order to win votes at the Parliamentary elections this month.JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva said that the TNA had failed to meet the expectations of the Tamils in the North and so now they are attempting to use the communal issue to win votes. Silva also said that the TNA election manifesto will go in favour of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa since the document speaks of a Federal solution and devolution of powers. The also warned the public to be mindful of false promises being made by the United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) and its Prime Ministerial candidate Mahinda Rajapaksa.Silva said that the UPFA was making several promises to the State sector ahead of the August 17 Parliament election when it was the UPFA which ruined the State sector. “During the Mahinda Rajapaksa administration we saw Rajapaksa using the State sector for the benefit of his family,” Silva said.He said that the State sector began to operate at a huge loss as a result of some of the decisions taken by Mahinda Rajapaksa and his Government.Silva also noted that the Mahinda Rajapaksa administration had used State sector employees for election work and for criminal activities. “When Mahinda Rajapaksa was President he used the Sri Lanka Transport Board for every election and used the staff as well and did not pay them so the Sri Lanka Transport Board faced losses and it was ruined. Port sector employees were also used by Mahinda Rajapaksa when he was President and so were Road Development employees,” he said. He said that hardline Sinhalese groups are opposed to a Federal solution and people like Mahinda Rajapaksa are now using that situation to win votes. Silva also accused Rajapaksa of failing to address concerns and demands of the State sector employees when he was President. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Rajitha to visit Qatar to strike deals with health sector

Sri Lanka is also looking forward to build on existing partnerships with Qatar in areas such as trade and investment and oil and gas sector. The country scores higher than average in healthcare with high life expectancy and a lower number of maternal and infant deaths compared to its neighbours.The island nation is known for having one of the world’s earliest known healthcare systems.Sri Lanka’s health indicators are comparable to more developed countries in the region. (Colombo Gazette) Qatar and Sri Lanka have signed several agreements including in the fields of sports, youth affairs and media. The memorandum of understanding (MoU) for strengthening cooperation in sports will focus on the development of sports for people with special needs and sports facilities.Sri Lanka offers free healthcare to its citizens, which has been a national priority. “The health sector is very advanced in Qatar from which Sri Lanka can benefit. The minister’s visit will mark a beginning in exploring opportunities for cooperation in this field,” Prof Karunadasa told The Peninsula. Minister of Health and Indigenous Medicine Dr Rajitha Senaratne will visit Doha in October, The Peninsula reported.The two-day visit is aimed at seeking opportunities for collaboration with Qatar’s health sector, the Sri Lankan Ambassador to Qatar, Prof (Dr) W M Karunadasa said. read more

UK notes Sri Lanka did very little five years after the war

The UK envoy said that the main sponsors of the Resolution warmly welcome Sri Lanka’s co-sponsorship of the draft Resolution and its public affirmation that it remains determined to deliver on the commitments it has already made to the UNHRC. The UK introduced to the Council draft Resolution L1 entitled “Promoting reconciliation, accountability and human rights in Sri Lanka”.“In the 5 years following the end of the armed conflict Sri Lanka chose not to take many measures that would have helped to advance reconciliation, accountability and human rights. It remains to Sri Lanka’s great credit that in 2015 it committed, in front of the international community, to take a set of steps towards these ends that are in its national interest and in the interest of every community in the country,” the Ambassador said. He was speaking at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on behalf of the Core Group on Sri Lanka comprising Canada, Germany, Montenegro, North Macedonia and the United Kingdom. “This was a period in which serious human rights violations and abuses are reported to have been committed by both parties and in which people from all of Sri Lanka’s communities had to endure terrible suffering. For many of the victims, especially the families of the missing and the disappeared, their suffering continues to endure,” he said. The British Government today noted that Sri Lanka did very little to address human rights concerns, five years after the war.The UK Ambassador to Geneva Julian Braithwaite said in a few months’ time it will be the tenth anniversary of the end of the protracted armed conflict in Sri Lanka, a conflict in which many thousands of people died. He said that draft Resolution L1. seeks to continue the process which Sri Lanka began at the Human Rights Council in September 2015 when it worked in partnership to set out a range of measures that it would take to advance peace, justice and reconciliation.He also noted that the Resolution acknowledges some very real achievements against these commitments over the last two years.“It also recognises that in a number of important areas, implementation remains work in progress. The resolution encourages Sri Lanka to accelerate its efforts to achieve full implementation of its 2015 undertakings and to set out a time-bound implementation plan to help it to make progress. It requests OHCHR to continue to strengthen its engagement with Sri Lanka and requests annual reporting by the Office of the High Commissioner for a further two years,” he said. He also said that as partners and friends of Sri Lanka, they stand ready to support Sri Lanka as it does so. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Annan strongly condemns brutal killing of 3 aid workers in Liberia

In a statement issued by a UN spokesman in New York, Mr. Annan demanded that the Government determine the exact circumstances under which the incident took place. He also called on “all parties to the conflict in Liberia to reinforce measures taken to ensure the protection of civilian, including relief workers.”The Secretary-General extended his deepest sympathy to the families and colleagues of Emmanuel Sharpolu and Musa Kita, Liberian nationals, and Kaare Lund of Norway. The three workers for the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) were on their way to a Norwegian-funded ADRA project in the highly volatile border region of Liberia and Côte d’Ivoire when they were caught-up in a rebel attack on Toe Town.The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), ADRA’s partner in the construction of campsites for Ivoirian refugees in Liberia, said it learned of Mr. Lund’s killing with “shock and sadness.” He had originally been reported as missing. The agency added that the 28 February attacks on Toe Town have disrupted humanitarian activities in Liberia’s eastern border regions. read more

Marée noire pour soigner son image BP rachète certains motsclés aux moteurs

first_imgMarée noire : pour soigner son image, BP rachète certains mots-clés aux moteurs de rechercheÉtats-Unis – Afin d’améliorer un tant soit peu son image guère reluisante, la compagnie à l’origine de la marée noire BP a décidé de racheter à des moteurs de recherche tels Google certains mots-clés, comme “marée noire BP”. Désormais, quand les internautes taperont “BP oil spill” (“marée noire BP”) dans les moteurs de recherche Google et Yahoo!, ils seront redirigés vers le site de BP, lequel met en avant les opérations effectuées par la compagnie afin d’endiguer la menace de la marée noire. La compagnie souhaite ainsi améliorer son image qui est, en ce moment, aussi désastreuse que la catastrophe écologique qui sévit dans le golfe du Mexique.ABC explique qu’une “simple recherche Google pour ‘oil spill’ sort plusieurs milliers de résultats, mais le premier lien, souligné tout en haut de la page, est de BP. ‘Apprenez-en plus sur les efforts de BP’, peut-on lire sous ce lien”.Pour s’approprier ces mots-clés, BP débourserait 10.000 dollars par jour. Rien n’est trop cher lorsqu’il s’agit de redorer son blason. Le 9 juin 2010 à 12:54 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Le cerveau des parfumeurs se développe avec lexpérience

first_imgLe cerveau des parfumeurs se développe avec l’expérienceLes aires cérébrales associées à l’olfaction sont particulièrement développées chez les parfumeurs professionnels. Mais surtout, plus ces experts ont une longue carrière derrière eux, plus grande est la quantité de matière grise dans leurs aires olfactives, ont découvert des chercheurs du CNRS et de l’Inserm.Les parfumeurs ont du nez et en acquièrent de plus en plus au fil de leur expérience ! C’est ce que viennent tout juste de démontrer des chercheurs du Centre de recherche en neurosciences de Lyon (CNRS/Inserm/Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1/Université Jean Monnet Saint-Etienne). qui ont ainsi réussi à mettre en évidence un phénomène pour le moins fascinant. L’entraînement chez les parfumeurs agit sur le volume de matière grise des aires olfactives.Au cours de précédentes études, les chercheurs avaient déjà montré que, grâce à l’entraînement, les parfumeurs développent la capacité d’imaginer mentalement une odeur au point de la “sentir” dans leur nez alors qu’elle est physiquement absente. Une faculté qui est hors de portée du “commun des mortels”, souligne le CNRS. Ajouté à cela, les scientifiques avaient également découvert que plus les professionnels avaient d’expérience, plus l’activité dans les régions olfactives et mnésiques diminuait. Cela est dû au fait que, chez eux, la communication neuronale est plus efficace : à la fois rapide et spécifique.Pour en apprendre plus, l’équipe “Codage et mémoire olfactive” a donc poussé plus loin les recherches en réalisant des IRM anatomiques réalisées sur des parfumeurs professionnels, des étudiants en parfumerie et des sujets témoins. Plus précisément, il s’agissait de 14 experts parfumeurs réputés, 13 étudiants de l’Institut Supérieur International de la Parfumerie, de la Cosmétique et de l’Aromatique de Versailles, et 21 personnes n’ayant aucune expertise olfactive particulière.Plus les parfumeurs sont entrainés, plus les aires sont étendues À lire aussiPourquoi certains s’évanouissent-ils à la vue du sang ?En comparant les IRM des cerveaux des sujets, les chercheurs ont alors constaté que le volume de matière grise du cortex olfactif primaire et d’une région voisine est plus grand chez les parfumeurs que chez les personnes lambda. Un développement cérébral qui pourrait être dû à un plus grand réseau neuronal, voire même à une augmentation du nombre de neurones, d’après les auteurs qui publient leurs travaux dans la revue NeuroImage. Par ailleurs, ces travaux montrent également que le volume de matière grise est directement corrélé avec l’expérience des parfumeurs. En effet, plus ils sont entraînés, plus les aires olfactives sont étendues. Il ne s’agit donc pas de capacités innées. Elles sont le fruit d’un entrainement au même titre que celui réalisé par les professionnels musiciens, sportifs, ou chauffeurs de taxi, par exemple. “Tous ces spécialistes réorganisent et surdéveloppent des aires cérébrales spécifiques. La capacité du cerveau à s’adapter à la demande environnementale et à se réorganiser avec l’expérience se confirme et semble être sans limite”, conclut ainsi le CNRS dans un communiqué.

Applying Single Responsibility principle from SOLID in NET Core

first_img #region Player public override string FirstName { get; set; } public override string LastName { get; set; } public override int Age { get; set; } public override string Bio { get; set; } #endregion namespace cricketScoreTrack.Classes { public class Batsman : Player, IBatter { #region IBatsman public int BatsmanRuns { get; set; } public int BatsmanBallsFaced { get; set; } public int BatsmanMatch4s { get; set; } public int BatsmanMatch6s { get; set; } #endregion public override double CalculateStrikeRate(Player player) { switch (player) { case AllRounder allrounder: return (allrounder.BowlerBallsBowled / allrounder.BowlerWickets); public override int CalculatePlayerRank() { return 0; } Using what we have learned about the single responsibility principle, we notice that there is an issue here. To illustrate the problem, let’s compare the code side by side: We are essentially repeating code in the Batsman and AllRounder classes. This doesn’t really bode well for single responsibility, does it? I mean, the one principle is that a class must only have a single function to perform. At the moment, both the Batsman and AllRounder classes are taking care of calculating strike rates. They also both take care of calculating the player rank. They even both have exactly the same code for calculating the strike rate of a batsman! The problem comes in when the strike rate calculation changes (not that it easily would, but let’s assume it does). We now know that we have to change the calculation in both places. As soon as the developer changes one calculation and not the other, a bug is introduced into our application. Let’s simplify our classes. In the BaseClasses folder, create a new abstract class called Statistics. The code should look as follows: namespace cricketScoreTrack.BaseClasses { public abstract class Statistics { public abstract double CalculateStrikeRate(Player player); public abstract int CalculatePlayerRank(Player player); } } In the Classes folder, create a new derived class called PlayerStatistics (that is to say it inherits from the Statistics abstract class). The code should look as follows: using cricketScoreTrack.BaseClasses; using System; namespace cricketScoreTrack.Classes { public class PlayerStatistics : Statistics { public override int CalculatePlayerRank(Player player) { return 1; } public override int CalculatePlayerRank() { return 0; } In Batsman, we have the following code: public double BatsmanBattingStrikeRate => (BatsmanRuns * 100) / BatsmanBallsFaced; namespace cricketScoreTrack.Classes { public class AllRounder : Player, IBatter, IBowler { #region Player public override string FirstName { get; set; } public override string LastName { get; set; } public override int Age { get; set; } public override string Bio { get; set; } #endregion #region IBatsman public int BatsmanRuns { get; set; } public int BatsmanBallsFaced { get; set; } public int BatsmanMatch4s { get; set; } public int BatsmanMatch6s { get; set; } #endregion } } Looking at the AllRounder class, remove the public enum StrikeRate { Bowling = 0, Batting = 1 } enum as well as the public double BatsmanBattingStrikeRate and public double BowlerStrikeRate properties. Lastly, remove the private double CalculateStrikeRate(StrikeRate strikeRateType) and public override int CalculatePlayerRank() methods. The code for the AllRounder class now looks as follows: using cricketScoreTrack.BaseClasses; using cricketScoreTrack.Interfaces; using System; case Batsman batsman: return (batsman.BatsmanRuns * 100) / batsman.BatsmanBallsFaced; In today’s tutorial, we’ll learn how to apply the Single Responsibility principle from the SOLID principles, to .NET Core Applications. This brings us to another interesting concept in OOP called SOLID design principles. These design principles are applied to any OOP design and are intended to make software easier to understand, more flexible, and easily maintainable. This article is an extract from the book C# 7 and .NET Core Blueprints, authored by Dirk Strauss and Jas Rademeyer. The book is a step-by-step guide that will teach you the essential .NET Core and C# concepts with the help of real-world projects. The term SOLID is a mnemonic for: Single responsibility principle Open/closed principle Liskov substitution principle Interface segregation principle Dependency inversion principle In this article, we will take a look at the first of the principles—the single responsibility principle. Let’s look at the single responsibility principle now. Single responsibility principle Simply put, a module or class should have the following characteristics only: It should do one single thing and only have a single reason to change It should do its one single thing well The functionality provided needs to be entirely encapsulated by that class or module What is meant when saying that a module must be responsible for a single thing? The Google definition of a module is: “Each of a set of standardized parts or independent units that can be used to construct a more complex structure, such as an item of furniture or a building.” From this, we can understand that a module is a simple building block. It can be used or reused to create something bigger and more complex when used with other modules. In C# therefore, the module does closely resemble a class, but I will go so far as to say that a module can also be extended to be a method. The function that the class or module performs can only be one thing. That is to say that it has a narrow responsibility. It is not concerned with anything else other than doing that one thing it was designed to do. If we had to apply the single responsibility principle to a person, then that person would be only a software developer, for example. But what if a software developer also was a doctor and a mechanic and a school teacher? Would that person be effective in any of those roles? That would contravene the single responsibility principle. The same is true for code. Having a look at our AllRounder and Batsman classes, you will notice that in AllRounder, we have the following code: private double CalculateStrikeRate(StrikeRate strikeRateType) { switch (strikeRateType) { case StrikeRate.Bowling: return (BowlerBallsBowled / BowlerWickets); case StrikeRate.Batting: return (BatsmanRuns * 100) / BatsmanBallsFaced; default: throw new Exception(“Invalid enum”); } } default: throw new ArgumentException(“Incorrect argument supplied”); } } } } You will see that the PlayerStatistics class is now solely responsible for calculating player statistics for the player’s rank and the player’s strike rate. You will see that I have not included much of an implementation for calculating the player’s rank. I briefly commented the code on GitHub for this method on how a player’s rank is determined. It is quite a complicated calculation and differs for batsmen and bowlers. I have therefore omitted it for the purposes of this chapter on OOP. Your Solution should now look as follows: Swing back over to your Player abstract class and remove abstract public int CalculatePlayerRank(); from the class. In the IBowler interface, remove the double BowlerStrikeRate { get; } property. In the IBatter interface, remove the double BatsmanBattingStrikeRate { get; } property. In the Batsman class, remove public double BatsmanBattingStrikeRate and public override int CalculatePlayerRank() from the class. The code in the Batsman class will now look as follows: using cricketScoreTrack.BaseClasses; using cricketScoreTrack.Interfaces; #region IBowler public double BowlerSpeed { get; set; } public string BowlerType { get; set; } public int BowlerBallsBowled { get; set; } public int BowlerMaidens { get; set; } public int BowlerWickets { get; set; } public double BowlerEconomy => BowlerRunsConceded / BowlerOversBowled; public int BowlerRunsConceded { get; set; } public int BowlerOversBowled { get; set; } #endregion } } Looking back at our AllRounder and Batsman classes, the code is clearly simplified. It is definitely more flexible and is starting to look like a well-constructed set of classes. Give your solution a rebuild and make sure that it is all working. So now you know how to simplify your .NET Core applications by applying the Single Responsibility principle. If you found this tutorial helpful and you’d like to learn more, go ahead and pick up the book C# 7 and .NET Core Blueprints, authored by Dirk Strauss and Jas Rademeyer.

QmlNet A new C library for crossplatform NET GUI development

first_imgQml.Net is a C# library for cross-platform GUI development with native dependency. It exposes the required object types to host a QML engine. In Qml.NET, Qml and JavaScript together form the UI layer. It can be thought of as the view in MVC. Qml.Net features The PInvoke code in this .NET library is hand-crafted by developer Paul Knopf to ensure appropriate memory management and pointer ownership semantics. He is pretty confident about the library and mentions in his blog “I’d bet you couldn’t generate a segfault, even if you wanted to.” In Qml.Net C# objects can be registered to be treated as QML components. You can then interoperate with them as you would with regular JavaScript objects. The registered C# objects serve as a portal through which the QML world can interact with your .NET objects. This has an added benefit of keeping your business/UI concerns separate cleanly. There will also be no chatty PInvoke calls for rendering. It is a great match. A pre-compiled portable installation of Qt and the native C wrapper is available for Windows, OSX, and Linux. Developers wouldn’t have to bother with C/ C++. All you need to know is QML, C#, and JavaScript; QML if fairly simple. QML can’t really be classified as a language, in the semantic sense. More appropriately it can be considered as a combination of JSON and JavaScript. Qml.Net support and working Qml.Net will work with any .NET language including popular C# and functional languages like F#. Your libraries will reference the pure .NET NuGet package, Qml.Net. The host process (Program.Main) references the native NuGet packages. This is dependent on the OS you are on: Qml.Net.WindowsBinariesQml.Net.OSXBinariesQml.Net.LinuxBinaries Paul currently only tests his own models that are C# objects registered with the QML engine. They are specific to each control/page. Since Microsoft’s announcement of .NET Core, there hasn’t been any clear idea on cross-platform GUI development. Although Microsoft plans to support WPF in .NET Core 3.0, it will be limited to Windows machines. With community involvement and support, Qml.net can be a potential game changer. You can head to the GitHub repository and also view some hosted examples to get a better idea.

Yemen rebel delegation leaves for Geneva talks

first_img Comments   Share   Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home They decided to attend the talks after the United Nations agreed to broaden the structure so they were not based solely on two warring sides. Members of the Socialist and Haqq parties were also joining.A day earlier, a plane meant to carry the rebels and their allies to the talks left Yemen without the delegates on board, casting doubt on whether the meetings would go forward as planned. The talks are slated to be first substantive meetings by all parties involved in the conflict.The delegation representing the government of embattled President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi arrived in Geneva Saturday morning.Security officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief journalists, said that Saudi-led airstrikes against the rebels and their allies continued in several Yemeni provinces, including Aden, Taiz, Saada and Hodeida.Violent clashes continued in Marib province, while rebel forces took control of al-Jawf province after clashes with tribesmen loyal to Hadi, prompting the coalition to launch airstrikes against them.Meanwhile, thousands of Houthi supporters marched in Sanaa in protest of the war and what they described as the siege of the city.

Exxon expected to start drilling by weeks end

first_imgBy Evie AndreouThe Stena Icemax drillship leased by ExxonMobil, is expected to begin drilling in Cyprus’ offshore block 10 by the end of the week, it was reported on Wednesday.The drillship arrived on location in block 10 on Sunday and is preparing to begin drilling in the site dubbed by Exxon as ‘Delphine’ after the Greek mythology dolphin-shaped sea daemon that was in the service of god Poseidon.Cyprus News Agency (CNA), said, citing sources, that at the moment the exact time of when the drilling will start cannot be determined due to technical and environmental factors.The same is true for the duration of the drilling, which is expected to last around two months. Progress, sources told CNA, will depend on the speed of winds, pressure as well as hard rock that can be found during drilling.The drilling rig will descend about two kilometres to the bottom and about two to three km further.After completing drilling in Delphine, the Exxon drilling rig will move to either ‘Glafkos’ or ‘Anthea’ targets. The choice of the second target will depend, in part, on the findings of the first drilling in Delphine, CNA said.Around 10 persons, mainly engineers and geologists from Exxon have been on the island the past six months in preparation of the drilling.At the same time, the drilling operations will be assisted by staff, mainly scientific, based in the US and the UK, who will evaluate the drilling results.Whether the natural gas to be found is commercially viable will depend on a number of factors not only concerning the quantity but also the quality of the gas and the depth at which it will be found.Reports said that earlier in the week a team of government officials were flown aboard the drillship by helicopter.The government on Tuesday rejected reports in the Turkish press that President Nicos Anastasiades expressed his willingness to agree to a deal with Ankara for Cyprus’ natural gas to flow to Europe through Turkey. The government was responding to reports that despite its strong public pronouncements, Ankara has no intention of hampering ExxonMobil as it explores for natural gas off the coast of Cyprus following a secret pact between Anastasiades and Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.Turkey has repeatedly threatened to stop Greek Cypriots from ‘unilaterally’ exploiting their offshore natural gas, arguing that the hydrocarbons resources belong to both communities on the island.In February of this year, Turkish warships, on the pretext of conducting drills, stopped a vessel from reaching its drilling target in Cyprus’ block 3.Turkey supports the breakaway regime’s claim that the area delineated by block 3 falls within the north’s ‘exclusive economic zone’.Neither Ankara nor the breakaway regime lay claim to block 10, licensed by Cyprus to ExxonMobil.  You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityEarthquake insurance that fits your future plansCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Will Take Your Breath Away.
