CTRL+Console Video Editing Controller Released for iPad

first_imgIf you’re looking to speed up your video editing work check out the Kickstarter funded CTRL+Console control surface – now available on iPad.Earlier this year we first reported on CTRL+Console in a roundup of video editing controllers.  At the time the application was still in development, after having raised a whopping $40,000 on Kickstarter in the fall of 2012.  Fast forward, and CTRL+Console is now available for public release!Created on the premise that keyboards were made for typing not video editing, CTRL+Console aims to be a more intuitive controller for video editing. The app is gesture based, which lets you keep your eyes on the video footage instead of down on your iPad.Released as a FREE download through the iTunes store, the free version of CTRL+Console is a basic Quicktime video controller.  To bump up the app for video editing functionality you’ll need to upgrade via an in-app purchase of $29.99.  The editing controller works with Final Cut Pro 7, Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premiere Pro (version 5 through CC).  If you’ve never used a video editing editing controller before you can give it a shot without a major financial commitment – unlike many physical controllers are prohibitively expensive (like the Lightworks controller at $2,000+).  The controller works with video editing apps running on both Mac and Windows based machines.To download the in-app purchase of just the Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro controller (basic playback functionality) you’ll only part with $4.99.   You really can’t go wrong with that price…even if only to impress your client with your snazzy new gadget.Get more info on the CTRL+Console site.last_img read more


When farmers got ₹1 loan waiver

first_imgOver 17,260 farmers in Uttar Pradesh have received loan waiver certificates for only ₹1,000 or less under a scheme in which the BJP government had promised to waive farm loans of up to ₹1 lakh.Of the 17,262 farmers, 4,814 got loan waivers of amounts between ₹1 and ₹100, while 6,895 received waivers of amounts between ₹100 and ₹500 and another 5,553 got waivers between ₹500 and ₹1,000.Under the first phase of its farm loan waiver scheme, the BJP government said it had so far distributed loan waiver certificates amounting to ₹7,371 crore of more than 11.93 lakh farmers in the State.According to a statement issued by the government, 41,690 farmers have received loan waiver certificates of ₹1,000-10,000 while the largest chunk, 11.28 lakh farmers, received waiver certificates of more than ₹10,000 each.The government was forced to issue a clarification after criticism that some farmers received loan waiver certificates of inconsequential amounts under the loan waiver scheme.A farmer in Hamirpur’s Maudaha tehsil, Shanti, was shocked to receive a loan waiver certificate of ₹10.37 even though she had a debt of more than ₹50,000.Some farmers also reportedly received waiver certificates of less than ₹1, provoking the Samajwadi Party to accuse the Yogi Adityanath government of “cheating and humiliating” farmers.SP spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary said that by “waiving off just Rs 3 of farmers with loans of Rs 1 lakh the BJP government had cheated farmers.”‘It’s interest component’Pressed to explain the low amounts of loan waiver in some certificates, the government issued a vague clarification. It said that apart from the loans, the interest outstanding too had been waived. “Due to this, in some cases the amount reflected is extremely low,” the government said.Fulfilling its election manifesto promise, the BJP government, in its first Cabinet meeting in April this year, had decided to waive farm loans, up to Rs. 1 lakh, of small and marginalised farmers.Along with the Rs 30,729 crore cost of the loan waiver, the government would settle around Rs 6000 crore of NPA of seven lakh small and marginalised farmers, to whom the banks had stopped issuing loans, through a one-time payment.last_img read more

The Torreon-based club sold Uriel Antuna to the City Football Group before the season, with the 20-year-old currently playing with Dutch side Groningen. The northern club has become known for developing and selling talent, with Liga MX stars Oribe Peralta and Darwin Quintero among those to pass through the club before moving on to a bigger side. Chivas, meanwhile, signs only Mexican players and needs to reload after a campaign that saw Matias Almeyda’s men finish 13th in the table with 18 points — the same amount as Santos. In addition to Vazquez, goalkeeper Rodolfo Cota also is expected to head for the exit door this winter while being linked with a number of players.Some rumors, like the return of Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez from the Premier League, seem like fantasy while others, like Lobos BUAP forward Amaury Escoto arriving to back up Alan Pulido, have more credence.last_img read more


Tourism Sector Continues to Record Growth

first_imgMinister of Tourism and Entertainment, Hon. Dr. Wykeham McNeill, says the tourism industry fared well throughout the year, recording increases in stopover arrivals, despite the many challenges encountered. “Our sector is doing well…our stopover arrivals remain positive, and the figures have been holding.  Between January and November of this year, we have recorded a 2.4 per cent increase over the same period last year,” he said. He was speaking on December 5 at the 42nd Annual General Meeting and Luncheon of the Jamaica Rent-A-Car Association, held at the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel in St. Andrew. The Minister said achievement of this feat in spite of challenges such as the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy on the east coast of the United States (US), and the US elections “really speaks well of the strength of what is Brand Jamaica”. He informed that 1,651,195 visitors “graced our shores,” during the 11-month period, which represents a 38,596 increase over the 1,612,599 visitors recorded for the same period last year. He noted that the 100,000 barrier for arrivals in September in Jamaica was also broken, with a six per cent increase in arrivals for the month, over last year.  “Our cruise arrivals for January to October also showed an increase of 11.2 per cent over last year with 1,073,794 cruise passengers recorded for the period over the 848,237 recorded for the same period last year,” he said. In the meantime, Dr. McNeillinformed that the Government has been working to shore up the country’s airlift arrangements in its traditional markets and has been making “excellent progress in our efforts at entering new frontiers,” as well. He cited new arrangements, where, starting January 1, 2013, Transaero Airlines, through Biblio Globus tour operators, will begin nonstop services from Moscow to Montego Bay using a Boeing 777 with 300 seats.  “We are very optimistic about the Russian market as we believe it will provide significant returns, as the minimum stay by visitors from that market is 10 nights, which is twice the average stay of visitors from traditional markets such as the US,” he said. The Minister further informed that the Government has confirmed service out of the Czech Republic for this winter period, with Meir’s Velt Reisen slated to operate a charter from Prague, starting December 28. The flight is to be shared with Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, with 100 seats designated for Jamaica and will have 10 rotations, the Minister noted. “In addition we will have non-stop service out of Paris, France, which will be operated by Look Voyages, providing 350 seats.  This flight was previously shared with the Dominican Republic, however it is now a direct flight to Jamaica and we will benefit from the full complement of 350 seats,” he said. “Another frontier is Scandinavia, which includes the countries of Sweden, Denmark and Finland.  Following discussions with TUI (Travel) they have confirmed flights out of Scandinavia for winter 2013 to 2014, from Sweden to Montego Bay using their new Dream-liner 787, as well as Thomas Cook, which will also offer services with an Airbus 330,” he informed He noted that these new arrangements signal that the “European market has opened up tremendously” for this winter season and beyond, contending that “it’s now for us to capitalise on it by providing the products and services visitors from these regions are looking for.” Dr. McNeill pointed out that there is also focus on markets in Latin America, noting that following discussions, Copa Airlines will be doubling its services from four to eight flights a week starting this winter.  “What we are doing is using Panama as a hub into Central America and opening this market to Jamaica,” he said. The Tourism Minister stated that with the Government having secured these airlifts, industry players must now work to ensure that the visitor experience and the advertising promise all coincide.  “We need to ensure that the product standards can match the expectations of the international traveller,” he said.last_img read more

UN rushes aid to new Darfur arrivals in Central African Republic

12 June 2007The United Nations is rushing aid to refugees pouring into the Central African Republic (CAR) from the troubled Darfur region of Sudan, a spokesperson said today. The United Nations is rushing aid to refugees pouring into the Central African Republic (CAR) from the troubled Darfur region of Sudan, a spokesperson said today.Jennifer Pagonis of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) told reporters in Geneva that the agency and its partners are providing supplies to 2,650 newly arrived Sudanese “who are in a desperate condition in the east of the country where they have been surviving mainly on mangoes for the last few weeks.”On Sunday, as part of a convoy of UN humanitarian aid from the capital Bangui, the agency sent materials including 600 pieces of plastic sheeting, clothes, soap and 600 jerry cans to help the refugees in Sam Ouandja located near the border with Sudan.The refugees began arriving in Sam Ouandja late May after fleeing repeated attacks on their home town of Dafak and surrounding villages in south Darfur, according to UNHCR, which cited accounts of homes being bombarded by planes and helicopters and attacks by men in military clothing. “The refugees are rapidly running out of food and have only a nearby creek for their water supply resulting in a number of refugees falling ill with diarrhoea while others have malaria,” said Ms. Pagonis.In response, UN agencies including the World Food Programme (WFP), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) sent on Sunday’s convoy 80 metric tons of food, seeds and agricultural tools for 1,000 families, water purification sets, some medical supplies and other basic household items such as kitchen sets and education kits. The aid is expected to take about 10 days to reach the refugees because of poor road conditions.WFP has also scheduled 15 metric tons of high-nutrition biscuits to arrive in Bangui on Thursday, from where they will be flown to Sam Ouandja. A doctor from the World Health Organization (WHO) is already at the site and two nurses are expected to leave today to the area.Ms. Pagonis said UNHCR is planning to fly a small team to Sam Ouandja to register the newly arrived refugees, arrange for their safety in cooperation with local authorities and organize aid distribution. CAR hosts some 10,000 refugees, mainly from Chad, Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), according to UNHCR. In the northern part, there are also more than 212,000 people who have been displaced within the country.Since 2003, the conflict in Darfur has killed some 200,000 people and forced another 2 million to flee their homes while threatening to spill over into neighbouring countries, including CAR. read more


UN says 81 million urgently needed for food relief to 35 million

“Lack of funding would mean that WFP could resort to decreasing the number of people it currently supports and would halt plans to expand and increase the number of people it plans to feed, depriving hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people in need of urgently needed food assistance,” the spokesperson for the World Food Programme (WFP) Elisabeth Byrs said in Geneva.“With very limited alternatives to support themselves, this means refugees will face destitution or could resort to buying on credit adding a burden on their host communities,” she added.In Lebanon, WFP would have to stop providing food vouchers to some 400,000 Syrian refugees. In Jordan, funds for the voucher programme are only sufficient until mid-May, and Ms. Byrs said that the agency would have to reduce the vouchers’ value, which would impact around 175,000 Syrian refugees living with the Jordanian community.Insufficient funds would also delay the transition from receiving food packages to food vouchers for more than 100,000 people who currently live in the Zaatari camp in Jordan.“Food vouchers allow Syrians fleeing from conflict to choose from a variety of food items to feed their families with dignity,” Ms. Byrs said, adding that the delay would not allow people to buy fresh food and have diversity in their diet.The vouchers also boost the host countries’ economy, and suspending the voucher programme could further strain local economies in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt, where WFP injected some $12.6 million in the last month alone.More than 70,000 people have been killed and more than three million displaced both within and outside the country since the uprising against President al-Assad began in March 2011.Over the past ten days however, the Office for High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has seen an increase in the number of Syrians returning home from Jordan, with about 300 people are crossing the border everyday into the Syrian governorate of Daraa. This still represents less than one per cent of the total number of refugees.“UNHCR is very concerned that refugees are returning to areas blighted by shortages of food, lack of fuel and electricity and limited services,” said UNHCR spokesperson Melissa Fleming. “The security situation is volatile, with reports of artillery shells and mortars being fired into villages refugees are trying to reclaim their homes and lives in.”UNHCR said it is not facilitating these returns, but is counselling refugees who wish to return on the conditions they will face. The agency is also undertaking regular missions to the border and working with the Jordanian authorities to ensure that all refugees have access to their documentation should they make the decision to return to Syria.The reasons for returning given by refugees include improved security in a number of border villages, a desire to safeguard their property, reuniting with family members who remained in Syria or travelling to collect and bring back vulnerable family members to Jordan, Ms. Fleming said. read more

New Minemax Planner set for release at SME in Salt Lake City

first_imgMinemax has announced the forthcoming release of a new solution for rapid, high-level project evaluation. The all-new Minemax Planner is described as “a fast, easy-to-use tool that enables businesses to quickly understand the potential value of projects with minimum time investment. It guides mine planners from a block model through pit optimisation, nested shells and pushbacks to NPV optimal schedules, rapidly developing optimal strategies for even the largest of models.” The computing landscape has evolved significantly since the early days of mine planning and Minemax Planner takes advantage of the latest advances in computing hardware and modern pit optimisation algorithms. It uses a high-performance maxflow algorithm which gives the same pit shells as Lerchs-Grossman (LG) but in a fraction of the time.With a 64-bit architecture, it is able to handle extremely large block models numbering tens of millions of blocks. The user-interface is based on the highly pervasive Microsoft Metro UI and is similar to that of Minemax Scheduler 6, released in 2012. The UI employs step-by-step pre-defined workflows and context-sensitive reports that make it very easy for new users to import models, set parameters, optimise and analyse. Powerful and interactive 3D technology gives a mine planner instant feedback regarding practical mine-ability at each step of the process. The release will take place on February 25, 2014 to coincide with the SME Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City. Minemax staff will be available to answer questions and give demonstrations, while a number of editions will be available to cater to the specific needs of mine planners from standard shell generation and sensitivity analysis to integrated NPV schedule optimisation. Minemax will also offer an academic program for qualifying institutions. A free demo version will also be available on the release day.last_img read more

It was fairly shameful to have 60 points put on you Cian

first_imgCIAN HEALY’S RECOLLECTIONS of the final minutes of Ireland’s 22-19 loss to New Zealand last year are as foggy as the weather front that enveloped AMI Stadium on the night itself.Asked to reflect on a dubious penalty call from referee Nigel Owens, which was crucial in the All Blacks getting on the front foot in the Irish half, the prop cannot recall the specifics. The manner of Ireland’s 60-0 thumping to the same foe, one week later, is fresh in Healy’s mind.He said: “It was tough coming from that, having put so much in [at Christchurch] to letting ourselves down to the extent we did a week later.There’s a bit of hurt to that; it was fairly shameful to have 60 points put on you. We know what’s capable of ourselves and we know what we can take this team to. There’s no real limits on us, going out this week.”Ireland forwards coach John Plumtree declared that the Irish pack — the same eight that faced Australia — trained angry this week. Healy, though, was the most Zen of the bunch. “I don’t really let anger take over so much,” he said.Sessions in Maynooth have been intense, the prop revealed, but many of the defensive defects that cost them dearly against the Wallabies seem to be rectified. One thing that would definitely help to alleviate some pressure would be strong carries by Healy, Jamie Heaslip and captain Paul O’Connell. Sean O’Brien has long since been recognised as Ireland’s go-to ball carrier so teammates are required to scream for Conor Murray’s attention and make some big plays.Healy said, “Whoever is there will be up for a ball carry. I’ll get my job done first at scrum. If I do that, I’ll be out the field for ball carries. Everyone’s got to look after their own ship but, by doing that right, it frees people up for runs. If one person wasn’t doing their job right that frees up on of their guys to [target] Seanie, carrying the ball.”The prop feels ‘you can talk until the cows come home about belief’ but putting in the hard yards on the training pitch is the only way the Irish can give themselves a chance. As for the All Blacks, Healy will not be pumping their tyres any time soon.He declared, “I constantly call them New Zealand in my head as I don’t like the name All Blacks. It’s something I go with… when you do put them on a pedestal you’re already below them.”Like rugby?
