The Royal Wedding A British Public Holiday Astronomical Media Numbers

first_imgWith all the hubbub about the “Royal Wedding” that took place on April 29th between Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine Middleton (the dresses, the guest list, the disappearing hairlines), some of the most astounding news was the numbers media sites covering the wedding saw on the big reports 162 million page views on Friday the 29th, doubling its previous record of 76 million page views in one day. PEOPLE followed the success of the wedding day with a Royal Wedding special collector’s issue that went on sale May 2. According to the Web site, experienced 45 million page views by 3 p.m. EST (that’s 8 p.m. London time, where the wedding took place). This is up 45 percent from “prior four-Friday average through the same hour”.Video usage on was up 318 percent over the prior-four day average, with 7.7 million video starts occurring before 3 p.m. EST on April 29th. The issue contains 105 ad pages out of the book’s total 220 pages, which marks the largest number of ad pages for a single issue of PEOPLE since 2007. To display this issue, an estimated 15,000 Royal Wedding display bins were sent to PEOPLE retail and wholesale partners across the nation.center_img Since the engagement announcement on November 16 2010, media attention to the royal nuptials had built at a frantic pace. After a highly publicized relationship (the British press nicknamed Middleton “Waity Katie” in reference to her and the prince’s nine year courtship), retailers are also getting in the Royal Wedding game, slinging Middleton dolls, collectible china, shot glasses and cardboard cut-outs features likenesses of the royal pair.According to FOLIO:’s sister site, minOnline, racked up three million pages views between April 29 and April 30. A reported half of this traffic was made up of visitors new to the site.The week before the royal nuptials, experienced the most traffic ever in site history.TIME magazine also capitalized on the British wedding madness, releasing a special Royal Wedding issue on May 2. TIME’s regular issue was on newsstands April 29, and a third special issue on 9/11 terrorist Osama bin Laden’s death (with the fourth red “X” over a cover subject’s face in the magazine’s history) will be released on May 5.This marks the first time in TIME’s run that three issues will be released within a one-week span.Steering away from the more popular Middleton scrutiny, “the collection”, an international iPad-only magazine, released an issue themed, “Prince William: The British Monarchy’s Great Hope” last week. Set to possibly release download numbers on May 6th, “the collection” offered free access to the “appazine” issue on the Royal Wedding day and the following Saturday. The issue is typically sold for $4.99 stateside.Now that Kate and William are married (and bin Laden is buried at sea), what will the media fixate on next?last_img read more

Selfdriving vehicles at the microscale

first_img Play A microvehicle avoids collision with an obstacle. Credit: Li et al. ©2017 American Chemical Society The AI planner, which is at the heart of the smart navigation system, can also detect when the microvehicle drifts from its planned path, which can occur due to the presence of noise. In these cases, the AI planner can simultaneously measure the error and guide the microvehicle back onto the path.One of the main applications of this type of smart microvehicle may be in the biomedical field for tasks such as disease diagnostics, drug delivery, and precision surgery. To demonstrate, the researchers showed that the microvehicle can use the camera to sense and distinguish between cancer cells, red blood cells, and mixed cells, by recognizing differences in their size and shape. The AI planner then regards the cancer cells as the targets and the other cells as the obstacles, and plans a path accordingly. (—In a new study, scientists have developed the microscale version of self-driving vehicles: a 5-μm spherical micromotor that autonomously navigates its way through micro-traffic along a micro-maze to reach its final destination. The researchers expect that these “smart microvehicles” have potential applications in biomedical tasks, such as delivering drugs to tumor cells while avoiding healthy cells. Trajectories of a microvehicle through mazes. The path is planned by an artificial intelligence system and the microvehicle is guided by magnetic fields.

Similar to their large vehicle counterparts, the autonomous navigation of microvehicles entails collision-free movement in dynamic environments.”Until now, micro- and nanomachines have been restricted to navigation that uses a closed-loop control system, in which the machines can only move along a predefined path. The new study marks the first demonstration of micromachines that can autonomously navigate complex, dynamically changing environments, such as those with other moving micromachines.The autonomous navigation process consists of three main steps. A CCD camera attached to a microscope takes pictures and sends them to a feature extraction processor, which identifies obstacles and constructs a map of the environment. The map is then sent as input to an Artificial Intelligence (AI) planner, which uses a path-searching algorithm and fuzzy logic approach to determine the shortest collision-free path among multiple possible paths to the destination. The AI planner then sends these travel directions to a magnetic field generator, which orients a magnetic field in such a way as to steer the microvehicle along the collision-free pathway. © 2017 This document is subject to copyright.

Qatar Airways dropping plan to buy stake in American Airlines

first_img<< Previous PostNext Post >> By: David KoenigSource: The Associated Press Share Qatar Airways dropping plan to buy stake in American Airlines Tags: American Airlines, Qatar Airways Thursday, August 3, 2017 DALLAS — Qatar Airways says it is dropping an attempt to buy a big stake in American Airlines, an audacious bid that had received a chilly reception from American.Qatar Airways said Wednesday that the investment no longer meets its objectives.American Airlines said it respected Qatar’s decision to withdraw, and added that the turnabout would not make any difference in American’s plans.Qatar said in June that it planned to buy an initial stake of up to 4.75 per cent of American’s stock, but Fort Worth, Texas-based American said Qatar’s goal was to get a 10 per cent stake.It was an odd move. The two airlines are on opposite sides of a nasty fight that has big U.S. carriers complaining that they are unfairly undercut on fares because Qatar and two other fast-growing Middle East airlines get illegal subsidies from their governments.Qatar Airways had said it wanted to be a passive investor and not take an active role in setting strategy at American, the world’s biggest airline. But on Wednesday, Qatar said it changed its mind after a review of the deal’s finances and American’s reaction.More news:  Hotel charges Bollywood star $8.50 for two bananas and the Internet has thoughtsAmerican CEO Doug Parker had given a chilly public response to the overture, calling it puzzling and not particularly exciting. Parker said Qatar CEO Akbar Al Baker approached him about an investment during a secret meeting at an airline-industry conference in a Mexican resort city.Parker vowed that despite the prospect of Qatar becoming a large shareholder, American would continue to fight Qatar, Emirates and Etihad Airways over the allegations of unfair government subsidies. The Middle Eastern airlines deny getting illegal subsidies.In July, American ratcheted up the tension by announcing that it was dropping seat-selling partnerships with Qatar and Etihad because of the subsidies dispute.On Wednesday, American spokesman Matt Miller said Qatar’s decision not to invest “in no way changes the course for American.” He said American “couldn’t be more excited to keep our focus” on serving customers.Qatar said in a statement that it would continue to look for opportunities to invest in airlines around the world to develop “the best possible travel experience for its customers.”More news:  Venice to ban cruise ships from city centre starting next monthShares of American Airlines Group Inc. fell 65 cents, or 1.3 per cent, to $50.41 in midday trading.last_img read more

the Emergency along with a number of opposition stalwarts then had said PTI Written by Alistair Mcmillan | Published: November 18 2014 12:27 am There are important qualifications to reading increased turnout as a justification for compulsory voting Related News Compulsory voting seems like an easy fix to a widespread problem: how to improve democratic participation Making voting mandatory is seen as a means of improving the legitimacy and responsiveness of government reducing opportunities for electoral malpractice and enhancing citizen engagement with the democratic process The decision by the Gujarat governor to sanction the provision of compulsory voting under the Gujarat Local Authorities Laws (Amendment) Bill 2009 has brought the question of compulsory voting back to the electoral reform agenda When the original proposal was introduced in 2009 Pratap Bhanu Mehta writing in this newspaper (‘Acts of choice’ IE December 22 2009 iexpin/sYk124693) provided a review of the principles that might be used to justify some measure of compulsory voting but noted that such measures seemed poorly suited to the context of Indian democracy and smacked of “democratic paternalism” He concluded: “Voting must remain an act of choice not propelled by coercion or inducement” Rather than reiterate the strong theoretical arguments that challenge the use of state compulsion to force people to go to the polls I want to examine some of the evidence from countries around the world that have used compulsory voting to see what comparative experience tells us about the practical implications The first thing to note is that the use of compulsory voting measures is relatively rare with only some 14 countries having compulsory voting requirements that are actually enforced The most prominent examples are Australia Belgium Brazil and Peru A report by the respected International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance suggested that compulsory voting was likely to become a “dying phenomenon” in western Europe Many countries that have had some form of compulsory voting have abandoned the measure or stopped trying to enforce it In Austria where it was abandoned at a national level in 1982 it was described by interior ministry officials as unpopular and “almost impossible to enforce” Spain Italy and the Netherlands have all had provisions for compulsory voting at some point but decided to make voting optional In recent years Chile (2012) Fiji (2014) and Greece (2000) have either removed compulsory voting requirements or simply stopped enforcing them Thailand introduced compulsory voting in 1997 as part of a wholesale constitutional reform package that sought to address political instability and rampant corruption In particular compulsory voting was seen as a way to combat vote-buying and reduce the influence of “black money” in elections The measure had little apparent effect — in the 2001 elections allegations of vote-buying and electoral irregularities caused its election commission to hold fresh elections in over 60 constituencies the democratic legitimacy of the government was undermined and further political turmoil led to a military coup in 2006 Studies of the wider effects of compulsory voting suggest that compelling people to turn out to vote does not increase levels of political knowledge make voters more likely to feel that their vote makes a difference or improve perceptions of the quality of representation As such compulsory voting should not be seen as a measure that will have a big influence on the quality of political engagement and participation But surely compulsory voting increases turnout Here the evidence seems clear In a comprehensive comparative study Harvard professor Pippa Norris showed that average voter turnout in countries with some form of compulsory voting requirement was 54 per cent higher than in countries where voting was optional However there are important qualifications to reading this as a simple and clear justification for compulsory voting The first is that the severity and strict enforcement of sanctions is key to substantially increasing turnout Second even in countries with strict enforcement of compulsory voting turnout is not universal and sanctions have to be imposed on non-voters Third imposing penalties on those who do not turn out to vote provides incentives for people to avoid appearing on the electoral register And fourth many of those who feel compelled to turn out to vote actually spoil their ballots or cast their votes randomly Compulsory voting may compel people to go to the polling booth but it does not ensure that they cast their vote in a meaningful way In Australia concern about what is known as the “donkey vote” whereby people simply choose the easiest option (for instance the first name on a polling machine) led to the introduction of random ballot ordering in 1984 Votes for “none of the above” or spoilt ballots are much more prevalent in systems with compulsory voting When electoral participation is measured in terms of the voting-age population rather than using those on the electoral register as a base the improvement in turnout in countries using compulsory voting falls to 19 per cent This suggests that the penalties associated with failure to turn out to vote provide a clear incentive for people who are qualified to vote to disappear from the electoral register This provides a more insidious motive for the introduction of compulsory voting As Norris notes: “Mandatory voting regulations may be genuine attempts to increase widespread public involvement in the political process or they may be employed by less democratic regimes to compel the public to vote in the attempt to legitimise one-party contests” In Singapore generally accepted to fall below the standards of a functioning democratic system compulsory voting is part of an electoral framework that perpetuates one-party rule The sanction for non-voting is withdrawal from the electoral register removing the right to vote from those who do not wish to participate in what is largely seen as an unfair electoral process In Gujarat the legislation for compulsory voting does not specify the sanctions that would be imposed on those not turning out to vote However speaking in Ahmedabad in April this year LK Advani proposed that “those who do not vote should be barred from voting in future” This raises the unpleasant prospect of the solution to non-voting being to remove people from the electoral process surely something that should concern those who believe in fundamental democratic rights The writer senior lecturer in politics at the University of Sheffield is author or ‘Standing at the Margins: Representation and

left: A man helps the DIG put on his shoes; a securityman doubles up as a caddie for DIG’s son; a man holds an umbrella for Beig Related News The boast of the J&K DIG’s son that his father was a “real king” because the “last time he put [on] his shoes himself was almost 15 years ago” has drawn angry reactions from many quarters This incident is painful because it projects a bleak reality that has to be accepted This reality has two aspects First the J&K DIG is one of many “kings” in the police forces of the country Only two years ago a PIL heard in the Punjab and Haryana High Court alleged that an officer of the rank of inspector general of police of the vigilance department was using as many as 31 police constables and head constables as “servants” On receiving a notice from the high court the Punjab government reportedly conducted an inquiry and then suspended the officer The orderly system still exists and is often misused Second the conditions under which the police constabulary work and live in this country are harsh humiliating and oppressive Their salaries are low They do not have fixed hours of work Their job is risky and stressful Family accommodation is not available to the majority of them They are constantly on the move and have little to look forward to in terms of career advancement While delivering the fourth Nani Palkhiwala Memorial lecture in Mumbai on October 5 2009 PC Chidambaram then Union home minister said that the police constable “who works for 12 to 14 hours a day throughout the year is the most abused” part of the machinery “Everyone believes that he can be bullied or cajoled or bribed… he is the most reviled public servant” He further said that the “self-esteem of the average policeman is very low and this average police constable is a frontline force for internal security” The lower ranks of the police complain that their self-esteem is affected by the behaviour of their senior officers There are two main grievances One policemen posted as orderlies at the residence of senior officers are often required to attend to the personal demands of the seniors and their family members Two seniors generally treat junior police officials in a rough rude manner Add to this the fact that the general public also looks down on the police constable as a lowly creature We have not given the policeman the status that befits his role in society Recently there have been reports that policemen from the lower ranks have been abused and assaulted by politicians and the public A policeman with low esteem cannot be professionally efficient or community friendly As observed by the National Police Commission (NPC) the manner in which police personnel at lower levels behave towards the public is largely conditioned by the manner in which they are treated by their own senior officers In its fifth report the NPC observed: “No amount of exhortation from the higher ranks calling for courteous behaviour towards the public would carry conviction with the subordinates if in day to day police work these subordinates are treated with scant courtesy and consideration by the supervisory levels within the police force” The managerial philosophy of the police is based on distrust of the lower ranks In pre-Independence days the “native” policemen were not to be trusted The Police Act of 1861 used the words “inferior officers” for those occupying the lower ranks in the police The phrase still exists in Section 7 of the Police Act which is titled “Appointment dismissal etc of inferior officers” A distinction between seniors and juniors in a hierarchical force may be understandable but to categorise a small minority of senior officers as superior and a large chunk of the force as inferior smacks of a set-up that is authoritarian and of values that are feudal Such a police act could hardly be expected to build up a force that functions as a professional organisation Even after Independence the mindset has not changed We have retained the same style of management The gulf between the senior officers and lower ranks is still very wide As Ved Marwah a retired senior police officer has mentioned “Unfortunately elitism within the superior ranks has only widened the gap between the field policemen and the supervising officers The two inhabit very different worlds A culture of distrust of the subordinate officer has developed over the years This needs to change if the police are to be an accountable and professional force” In India we have given ourselves a democratic structure of governance but our values are highly feudal So far as the police force is concerned it is colonial in its structure as well as values It is one of the reasons why the police in this country have failed to develop a sense of self-esteem and professional pride The writer is a retired director of the Bureau of Police Research and Development and author of ‘Policing in India — Some Unpleasant
