We remain united in our determination to building a better and peaceful future for all.” O’Neill added: “Those responsible should listen to the people, they should disband immediately and end their pointless actions against the community which tonight has tragically claimed the life of a young woman.“I am appealing for calm and I urge anyone with any information about this killing to bring it forward immediately to the police and assist their inquiries.”Woman shot dead in ‘terrorist incident’ in Derry, police say was last modified: April 26th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Derrylast_img read more

MTN to up African music offering

first_imgCCA’s vast catalogue includes recording labels such as AS Entertainment, Godfather (specialising in Nigerian content), Al Records (East and West Africa content) and Soulistic Music, which features top DJs like Black Coffee. “With Africa’s mobile penetration now at approximately 50% of the 1-billion population, MTN sees a huge opportunity in music content being delivered on people’s mobile handsets via our digital content portal.” Christian de Faria, MTN’s senior vice president for innovation, says there is a growing demand for digital content in Africa: “More and more people in Africa and in the developed world are going online for entertainment content,” he said in a statement earlier this month. CCA has a substantial catalogue of African musical content by artists in Nigeria, Cameroon, Ghana, South Africa and Kenya – among others. It also has rights to exclusive video content featuring a host of popular African artists, including Hugh Masekela, Fela Kuti and Busi Mhlongo. Growing demand for digital content Vast catalogue of African music “Connect Africa is passionate about music from our continent,” said CCA managing director Antos Stella. “We have always strived to be ahead of the pack when it comes to representing African music, offering our artists and labels a bouquet of services from content to marketing, sponsorship and digital management. Through its deal with CCA, MTN will offer a wide selection of music content, which will be available either as full tracks or caller tunes.

The Collaborative Cloud: Battle for the Inbox

first_imgTags:#Analysis#cloud 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… On Jan 12, VMware agreed to purchase Zimbra, a division of Yahoo! that’s known for its easy-to-use, paid inbox service. Zimbra, primarily a consumer application to date, offered a cloud solution last fall. Now this cloud service is going to be part of VMware’s major push of enterprise services to the cloud. Thinking back a decade or so, this reminds us of the power of Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office, arguably the best pairing and best business franchise in technology history, a $30 billion business today.This new collaboration allows VMware to offer email, one of the stickiest services in IT, to a vast set of partners. This extends the solution loved by consumers to enterprise users that rely on email. On the competitive front, this move provides a way to unlock enterprises from Microsoft Exchange, perhaps the most entrenched system that Microsoft has with the enterprise customer today.Exchange has been known as a double-edge sword for many IT shops for years. Yes, it has been the most-used application for nearly a decade, but it has been known as hard to use, scale, and administer. The promise of an integrated inbox that connects to back-office applications (e.g. Word, Powerpoint, Sharepoint) has been a real promise, but has been complicated to deploy. Thus, other solutions such as Zimbra have started to get a leg up in the race for collaboration in the enterprise. By enabling a cloud-based email service, Zimbra is already proving that it can scale its services and management capabilities to take on Microsoft Exchange head-on. As a gateway to collaboration, email baked into the virtualization and cloud computing offering could significantly change the landscape on how services hook into the enterprise, and provide a new lever to offer an entire suite of cloud-based, virtually hosted systems.On January 18th, IBM also announced it’s bringing its powerful enterprise class LotusLive collaboration tools to the cloud through open APIs. Throwing the power of IBM and the open web into the mix, is it now possible that Lotus could leapfrog Exchange and be cool again? No small feat indeed, as IBM has seen more than a decade of enterprises ripping out Lotus and replacing with Exchange Server as a central hub. IBM’s move is a major signal that they see an opening up of the collaboration suite as the way to bring collaboration to enterprise users, instead of through IT development and customization. The purchase of Zimbra is a tipping point in moving systems to the cloud that will capture the hearts and minds of developers that are building new services, and IT leaders in the enterprise. The outcome will be more back-end services offered in the cloud, and it is bringing the giants out of their caves to respond and meet Zimbra in the new battlefield.Below is a snapshot of key feature sets that Zimbra highlights in its comparison to Exchange. What would it take you to switch your enterprise email to the cloud? mike kirkwoodlast_img read more

Are Your Web Browser Plugins Safe? This Page Tells You

first_imgRelated Posts Mozilla, the organization behind the Firefox web browser, introduced a “plugin checker” page last fall that analyzed whether the plugins you had installed in your web browser were up to date. Now that tool has been updated to check plugins installed in other web browsers too, including Safari, Chrome, Opera and Internet Explorer. According to the Director of Firefox Development, Johnathan Nightingale, plugin safety is an issue across the web. “Outdated plugins are a major source of security and stability risk for web users,” he wrote in a recent company blog post. Plugin Safety MattersNightingale says that some studies have shown that the number of users running outdated plugins in their web browser is as high as 80%. However, the plugin checking mechanism built into the latest builds of the Firefox web browser keeps its users better secured as it will prompt you to update your plugins when new ones become available. He notes that over 60% of Firefox users visiting the plugin checker page were running the most recent version of the Adobe Flash plugin, a plugin that’s a popular target for attackers looking to exploit security vulnerabilities in the browser. When including users with either the latest version of the Flash plugin or the second most recent, the number was 75%, much higher than the rest of the web as a whole. Beyond Firefox: Plugin Safety for All BrowsersBut plugin safety isn’t just an issue for Firefox users. All web surfers who use plugins can be affected by security issues. And most do have plugins, even if they don’t realize it. Mainstream users may not understand that clicking “install Flash” to watch a web video means they’ve installed a browser plugin, but that’s exactly what they just did. And now in Google Chrome, the new web browser from the Internet Search giant, the Adobe Flash plugin will come pre-installed with the browser itself. To help address the issues of plugin safety outside the Firefox ecosystem, Mozilla has updated their plugin safety page to work with a number of other web browsers, including Safari 4, Chrome 4 and Opera 10.5. It also checks the safety levels of the most popular plugins for Internet Explorer 7 and 8.

If any of the plugins are old, just click the “Update Now” button to remedy the situation. If the plugin checker can’t determine the status of the plugin, a “Research” button will appear instead. Plugins that are current will show a green “Up to Date” button. Reminder BadgesWeb site owners who want to remind their visitors to check their plugins can add one of these quirky banners to their site. “Groom parrot, Polish trophies, Check plugins,” the banner reads.Although the plugin checker page is a handy tool for web surfers concerned about security, it’s better when the browser does it for you.

Cricket therapy

first_imgFor 26-year-old Jyotirmoy Mukherjee, an ideal winter afternoon means playing a good game of cricket. And even though he bats well, bowling is his passion. So what makes this Howrah boy different from the average young man who loves to toss around a ball? For the last seven years, Jyotirmoy,For 26-year-old Jyotirmoy Mukherjee, an ideal winter afternoon means playing a good game of cricket. And even though he bats well, bowling is his passion. So what makes this Howrah boy different from the average young man who loves to toss around a ball? For the last seven years, Jyotirmoy has been an inmate at Presidency Jail, or “correctional home” as they are called in West Bengal-serving a life sentence for murder. He suffers from bouts of depression due to the social ostracism. “There is a huge stigma attached to being imprisoned and we find a staggering number of inmates suffering from mental illnesses,” says B.D. Sharma, ADGP, Correctional Services.To alleviate this sense of dejection, the Rotary Club of Central Kolkata and Satyam Seva Kendra are conducting “a social experiment”. The Rotarians recently played a cricket match against inmates of three prisons and are planning to host an inter-jail cricket tournament soon.They also plan to introduce employment opportunities for inmates, which will continue even after they are released from prison. “We are working on a programme whereby the inmates can take up tailoring of hosiery goods,” says Mudar Patherya, member, Rotary Club. “It’s a win-win situation. The inmates will be able to earn 10-fold more than their current wages while decreasing the cost of production for companies which will outsource the work.””Competitive sports and other activities help us feel normal. It doesn’t feel like a jail,” smiles 29-year-old Dhirendra Kumar Jha, who is under trial for kidnapping and murder and has already spent seven years in prison.advertisementlast_img read more

The Summit was founded in 1995 in order to help steer the future of children’s programming in a rapidly-changing world. The event now involves creatives, technology innovators, policymakers, executives and thought leaders from around the world.A survey published last year revealed children own their first mobile phone aged seven and will start to browse the internet as young as five years old. Over three days, the summit will look at the impact that digital technology will have on children and the future of the media.Through The Royal Foundation, The Duke brought together representatives from key technology companies to launch a cyberbullying task force to support young people and their families affected by cyberbullying. Last month, The Duke unveiled a plan of action to protect children and encourage a new standard of behaviour online.The Duke met with those involved, driving efforts to find a universal tool for children to report bullying when they see it or experience it.Speaking at the conference, The Duke said, “What we cannot do, however, is pretend that the impact of digital technology is all positive or, indeed, even understood. I am afraid to say that, as a parent, I believe we have grounds for concern.”The Duchess also joined a forum hosted by Sesame Street’s Workshop, the charitable foundation of the famous children’s TV show.The BBC also unveiled details of the Own It project, one of the key outcomes of The Royal Foundation’s Cyber Bullying Taskforce.Before arriving at the summit, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spoke to local school children taking part in a “Stepping Out” session. The session gives young people a chance to share their thoughts on new programmes with Children’s television editorial staff and content producers.Source:Royal.uklast_img read more
