first_imgWASHINGTON – Donald Trump is being encouraged to stay strong in NAFTA negotiations by people who aren’t normally his allies.Sen. Bernie Sanders and other members of the anti-NAFTA left held a news conference Wednesday on Capitol Hill where they demanded that the president keep his promise to drastically overhaul the agreement.They held their event as negotiators from the three countries met in Washington.“We are here today to send a very loud and clear message to Donald Trump: for once in your life keep your promises,” said Sanders, a Vermont senator and former presidential contender.“We need to fundamentally rewrite NAFTA.”Sanders expressed support for hardball U.S. negotiating positions like increased Buy American protections, and he wants to go even farther than Trump and not just water down the investor-state dispute mechanism in Chapter 11 but end it entirely.He also wants Trump to go farther on labour standards and to end incentives to outsource jobs.Those disagreements on specifics illustrate that while Trump and the left share similar rhetoric about trade, some of their specific proposals veer in different directions, raising doubt about how many left-wingers Trump could hope to win over in a ratification vote for a trade deal.Speakers at Wednesday’s event didn’t actually call for the cancellation of NAFTA, just major changes.Lawmaker Rose DeLauro recalled having tears in her eyes the night the House of Representatives voted for NAFTA and she said the last quarter-century has proven that critics who said the deal would undermine American worker wages were right.Trade politics in the U.S. rarely hews to clear, predictable partisan lines.In 1994, it was mostly Republicans who helped Democratic president Bill Clinton get NAFTA ratified. Today, polls show Democratic voters are likelier to support NAFTA, but not their elected representatives, while it’s the opposite on the right, where Trump voters mostly oppose NAFTA but most Republican lawmakers support it.DeLauro rejects being painted as a protectionist or as anti-trade.“We are for trade,” said the Connecticut Democrat.“We want to work with the administration. We want to rewrite NAFTA.”Sanders says poorly designed trade deals are one of the factors that have hurt U.S. manufacturing communities in recent decades and led to greater inequality between haves and have-nots.“It devastates lives. And it devastates cities and towns,” Sanders said.“Trade is not the only explanation for that. But trade is an important part of the decline of the middle class America.”last_img read more

“I urge the Eritrean authorities to immediately release, or charge and bring before a court of law, all detainees, including the members of the ‘G-15’, the journalists arrested in 2001, as well as those arrested for their opinions or religious beliefs,” said Sheila B. Keetharuth, UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Eritrea.Ms. Keetharuth welcomed the reported release of eight detainees in Eritrea, which took place in April 2014, but which has not been publicly acknowledged by the Eritrean authorities. “Their release is a positive development, which I hope will be followed by more systematic releases,” she said, expressing the hope that “Eritrea will abide by its obligations under international human rights law more consistently.” Since her appointment in November 2012, the Special Rapporteur has made several requests to visit Eritrea, which have so far not been granted. She has repeatedly urged the Eritrean authorities to collaborate with her mandate with a view to addressing its human rights challenges. Ms. Keetharuth, travelled to Germany and Switzerland from 17 to 28 March 2014 to collect first-hand information from Eritrean refugees and migrants on the human rights situation in Eritrea.The Special Rapporteur will submit her second report on the human rights situation in Eritrea to the Human Rights Council in June 2014.Independent experts or special rapporteurs are appointed by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work.Ms Keetharuth expressed concern about the unknown number of Eritreans who continue to be held in the country’s secret detention centres. Thousands are believed to be detained incommunicado at unknown locations, without charge or trial.“Those detained incommunicado and in undisclosed locations are at high risk of being tortured or submitted to other forms of ill-treatment,” she said. “I call on the authorities to disclose the whereabouts of all detainees held incommunicado and provide immediate access to their families, medical doctors and legal representatives.”Most of those men reportedly released had been arrested in 2005-2006 in Keren, 90 kilometres north-west of the capital, Asmara. Among them were several government officials and two medical doctors. It is unclear whether reasons have been provided for their arrest in the first place, or for their release. None of them has ever been brought before a court of law to review the legality of their detention. read more

OSU then-freshman forward Nichelle Prince (left) makes a play on the ball in a game against Pittsburgh at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium Aug. 28, 2013. OSU won 2-0.Credit: Lantern file photoThe Ohio State women’s soccer team split its weekend matchups with a loss to No. 19 Illinois and a win against Northwestern.The Buckeyes (5-6-0, 2-3-0) snapped a three-game losing streak against the Wildcats Sunday as they needed just two saves from redshirt-freshman goalkeeper Megan Geldernick to seal the victory.OSU kicked off the scoring when freshman forward Sammy Edwards scored off a cross from sophomore forward Nichelle Prince in the 23rd minute. Prince recorded her first assist of the season in her second game since returning from injury.OSU took the 1-0 lead heading into the half while holding a 7-4 lead in shots.The Wildcats tied things up in the 63rd minute on a far post shot from freshman forward Michelle Manning. The Buckeyes regained the lead shortly after in the 66th minute when senior forward Kayla Varner lofted a shot over the goalkeeper and into the net.Sophomore midfielder Alexis Degler capped the scoring in the 88th minute after putting back her own rebound. The Buckeyes went on to win, 3-1.The Buckeyes began their two-game home stand with a 4-1 loss against the Fighting Illini on Friday evening.Scoring began in the sixth minute when Illinois junior defender Reagan Robishaw connected off a cross from the right wing. The lead doubled in the 14th minute when a free kick from junior midfielder Nicole Breece was deflected off an OSU defender and then off the hands of Geldernick.OSU cut the deficit in half in the 40th minute with a header by junior midfielder Michela Paradiso. The Buckeyes finished the half trailing 2-1 in goals and 6-4 in shots.After a goal kick from sophomore goalkeeper Claire Wheatley breezed past the OSU defense, Illinois increased its lead to two again in the second half when redshirt-senior forward Jannelle Flaws scored a breakaway goal in the 59th minute.OSU faced another problem as junior defender Marisa Wolf was issued a red card and ejected in the 71st minute for pulling an Illinois player down by her hair. The penalty forced the Buckeyes to play with 10 players on the field for the rest of the game. Wolf had been shown a yellow card in the 69th minute before the incident.The Fighting Illini finished the scoring in the 83rd minute when a long ball deflected off an OSU defender and into an empty net.OSU’s next game is scheduled for Friday against the No. 13 Wisconsin Badgers. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. in Madison, Wis. The Buckeyes are then set to play Minnesota on Sunday at 2 p.m. in Minneapolis. read more

first_imgIf you think playfulness is associated only with childhood, you may be wrong.A new study suggests that playfulness in adults is a positive trait which may help them to see things from new perspectives, turn monotonous tasks into something interesting as well as help them when choosing partners and in romantic relationships.The study showed that playful people are able to reinterpret situations in their lives so that they experience them as entertaining or are able to reduce stress levels. People who describe themselves as playful are also viewed by others as such. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfPlayfulness should not be equated with humour. Instead we need a new vocabulary to describe it, said Rene Proyer from Martin Luther University (MLU) in Halle-Wittenberg, Germany.“Playfulness is an independent personality trait that shares certain aspects with five global dimensions – including extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, openness to experience and emotional stability that are frequently used to describe personality – but which cannot be interchanged,” Proyer explained. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveIn the study, the researchers identified four basic types of playful adults.“There are people who like to fool around with friends and acquaintances. We describe this as other-directed playfulness. By contrast, light-heartedly playful people regard their whole life as a type of game,” Proyer said.Another category includes people who like to play with thoughts and ideas – this describes intellectual playfulness. These people are able to turn monotonous tasks into something interesting.The psychologist describes the final group as being whimsically playful. “These people tend to be interested in strange and unusual things and are amused by small day-to-day observations.”Conversely, playfulness in adults has also been associated with negative connotations. Playful people are sometimes not taken seriously or are seen as unreliable, as they may easily change perspectives.last_img read more

first_imgOpera Mini update brings ad blocker by Martin Brinkmann on May 04, 2016 in Opera – 6 commentsOpera Software published an update for the Opera Mini application today that introduces an ad blocker to the mobile web browser.After making an ad blocker available in the desktop version of Opera, or more precisely, the Developer edition of the browser, recently, Opera Software just added the very same feature to Opera Mini as well.Opera Mini is a lightweight browser that has existed since the good old Nokia days where phones were not all that powerful and Internet transfers not speedy at all.The main idea behind the application was to provide mobile users with a lightweight program that was best suited for browsing the Internet on low-performance devices.Opera Mini evolved over time, and it is now available for today’s dominating mobile platforms Android and iOS (but also for basic phones).Opera Mini Ad BlockerA prompt is displayed to you when you install or upgrade Opera Mini on a supported device that informs you about the new ad blocker.You can enable the ad blocker right on the screen, or skip the enabling for the time being. Please note that you may enable the ad blocking functionality at any point in time in the preferences (or disable it).Ads are blocked as soon as you enable the ad blocker in Opera Mini. This is an automated process that you cannot control at all.What this means is that there is no option to whitelist sites or elements for instance, or mark elements on a page that are not blocked for blocking. This makes it less flexible than solutions such as uBlock Origin which provide this functionality.The internal ad blocker of the Opera browser offers better memory efficiency compared to no ad blocker or ad blocker extensions according to Opera.With its native ad blocker, Opera for computers speeds up page loading by as much as 89%, compared to browsing without ad blocking, and up to 45% compared to browsers with third-party ad-blocking extensions.How to enable/disable the Ad Blocker in OperaTo change the state of Opera’s Ad Blocker do the following:Tap on the Opera icon in the Opera Mini interface.Tap on the right arrow next to “savings mode”, or select Settings > Data Savings.There you find listed the block ads preference which you can enable (check) or disable (blank).Closing WordsThe introduction of an ad blocker is the second “first” for Opera this year, at least when you look at the feature set of browsers with a large user base.The company launched a Browser VPN, or more precisely a proxy, in desktop versions of the Opera web browser recently.Chrome-based browsers like Opera need features that distinguish the browser from the almighty (in terms of popularity) Chrome web browser, and the introduction of these two features certainly go a long way in distinguishing the browser from Chrome.Now You: Have you used Opera recently?SummaryArticle NameOpera Mini update brings ad blockerDescriptionOpera Software published an update for Opera Mini today that introduces an ad blocker to the mobile web browser.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgA first look at Windows Sandbox by Martin Brinkmann on December 19, 2018 in Windows – Last Update: December 19, 2018 – 25 commentsWindows Sandbox is a new virtualization feature that Microsoft will integrate in Windows 10. Windows Sandbox allows users and administrators to run software in a sandbox so that it cannot harm the underlying system.Sandboxing is not a new concept but users had to resort to installing third-party solutions like Sandboxie or virtual machines such as VMWare or VirtualBox in the past to run software in a protected environment.Windows Sandbox will be part of Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise; everything is included in the operating system making it a comfortable and elegant solution.The environment works as expected: it is an “isolated, temporary, desktop environment” that protects the underlying host from harm and will vanish when it is closed.Windows Sandbox requirementsWindows Sandbox has the following prerequisites:Windows 10 Pro or Windows 10 Enterprise build 18305 or later.AMD64 architecture.At least 4 Gigabytes of RAM, 1 Gigabyte of free disk space, and 2 CPU cores (recommended 8 Gigabytes or more of RAM, SSD, and 4 cores with hyperthreading).Virtualization enabled in the BIOS.If you use a virtual machine, you need to run the PowerShell cmdlet: Set-VMProcessor -VMName -ExposeVirtualizationExtensions $trueMicrosoft notes that all privacy settings but the host diagnostic data setting are set to their default values in the sandboxed environment.How to enable Windows SandboxProvided that the system meets the requirements listed above, you may enable Windows Sandbox in the Windows Features dialog.Use the shortcut Windows-Pause to open the System Control Panel applet.Select Control Panel Home.Activate Programs.Select Turn Windows features on or off.Check Windows Sandbox.Click ok and follow the instructions.You may also enable the feature using the Settings application:Use the shortcut Windows-I to open the Settings application.Go to Apps > Apps & Features > Programs and Features > Turn Windows Features on or off.Select Enable Windows Sandbox.Using Windows SandboxOnce installed, use the Start menu to load Windows Sandbox. You can search for it. Note that it requires elevation; you can right-click on the file and select run as administrator to run it with elevated privileges.Copy an executable file — or any other file for that matter — and paste it into the Windows Sandbox window. You may then run it like you would do on the “real” desktop and interact with the software like you would do normally.You may close the Windows Sandbox window at any time to close the session. Any changes are discarded and sandbox content is deleted in the process.Microsoft notes that Windows Sandbox uses Windows Containers to provide the sandboxing functionality. While Windows Containers were “designed to run in the cloud”, Microsoft’s team integrated it with Windows 10 and modified it so that it would work fine on laptop and desktop devices running the operating system.Windows Sandbox uses the loaded Windows version as the operating system image; this is different from many other virtualization environments which require virtual images that users need to download and install in the machines.The implementation has several known issues in its current state:Will trigger “significant CPU and disk activity” on install and in the first minute of servicing.Start Menu is delayed and some Start menu apps won’t execute.Time zone is not synced between Windows Sandbox and host.Windows Sandbox does not support installers that require reboots.Microsoft Store is not supported.High DPI displays and multi-monitor configurations are not supported very well.Use CasesWindows Sandbox offers several interesting use cases; it may replace other virtualization solutions in some cases:Run software that you want to check out so that it can’t harm the underlying operating system or steal data.Execute software in the environment for privacy purposes (e.g. not wanting history records or traces in the temp folder).Run any other file in the sandbox.While you can install programs in the sandbox, you cannot use it to test or analyze software that requires a reboot of the system before it can be used.Closing WordsMicrosoft has not integrated the feature yet in any version of Windows 10. The company plans to integrate it in upcoming Insider builds for testing purposes before it lands in an upcoming feature update for Windows 10.Windows Sandbox offers advantages over third-party sandboxing or virtualization solutions: it is integrated in Windows 10 and uses the host operating system as its base. It lacks flexibility on the other hand and does not support persistent sessions or data.It remains to be seen how fast Windows Sandbox will start when executed on a system that supports it, and how much of a difference faster hardware makes.Now You: Sandbox integration in Windows 10? Good or bad? What is your take?SummaryArticle NameA first look at Windows Sandbox DescriptionWindows Sandbox is a new virtualization feature that Microsoft will integrate in upcoming versions of the company’s Windows 10 operating system.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
