La caméra 3D de James Cameron devrait explorer Mars

first_imgLa caméra 3D de James Cameron devrait explorer MarsÉtats-Unis – Le réalisateur d’Avatar envisage de faire profiter la Nasa de sa technologie 3D lors d’une prochaine mission prévue en 2011.Son but : offrir au grand public des images exceptionnelles et captivantes de la planète rouge.D’après le journal Pasadena Star News, le cinéaste aurait déjà rencontré l’administrateur de la Nasa, Charles Bolden, lors d’une réunion en janvier. Il lui aurait alors proposé d’équiper le robot Curiosity d’une caméra 3D haute définition. “Il était tout à fait ouvert à l’idée”, a déclaré James Cameron au journal au sujet de Charles Bolden, ajoutant que la réunion s’était très bien passée. La Nasa aurait déjà acheté la fameuse caméra pour la fixer sur un mât du robot lors de l’exploration. “C’est une mission très ambitieuse et très excitante”, s’est réjoui le réalisateur canadien, arguant que grâce à cette technologie, les scientifiques pourront “répondre à beaucoup de questions fondamentales sur la possibilité pour l’homme de s’installer sur Mars”.Le 30 avril 2010 à 12:55 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Vancouver visually impaired students expand experience with photography

first_imgMisty Sahlbom, 16, traced her fingers across a statue of a running girl at the Washington State School for the Blind.There’s plenty to feel in the twisting, sculpted metal pieces that form the statue’s body — which means, for Misty, there’s plenty for others to see, even if she can’t.This is the school’s photography program, giving visually impaired and blind students a shot at an art form dominated by sighted people. Students feel, smell and listen their way through their surroundings, working with an adult volunteer to compose a photo that matches what’s in their mind’s eye.“It allows visually impaired and blind students the opportunity to explore the world and see what’s out there,” said Nolan Schaffer, a 17-year-old junior at the school.The program is the brainchild of Gary Scott, a Vancouver photographer and retired photojournalist who has been volunteering at the school for nearly a decade. The students’ photos are currently on display at Vancouver City Hall.Scott has amblyopia, more commonly known as “lazy eye,” a common condition in which the brain fails to fully communicate with one or both eyes. It means he knows a bit about what his students are experiencing and how he can help them experience the world in other ways.last_img read more

Andrew Krok/Roadshow Lexus first introduced its Inspiration Series cars with a Black Panther tie-in, and it followed that with a big, fancy SUV at the LA Auto Show. Now, for the Chicago Auto Show, it has something sportier in the works.Lexus on Wednesday introduced the 2019 LC 500 Inspiration Series, which will make its official debut at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show next week. Like previous Inspiration Series vehicles, the LC 500 version is all about beefing up the style — but this one sports just a bit more flair than the others.The LC 500 Inspiration Series rocks a very bright shade of yellow paint with a metallic finish. 21-inch wheels, a carbon fiber roof and a carbon fiber lower grille insert complement the Flare Yellow paint job. Inside, there are yellow door inserts made from Alcantara suede, and the leather seats sport yellow stitching that extends to the instrument panel, glove box and center console. There’s also a set of carbon fiber door sill inserts.But that’s not all. The 100 buyers lucky enough to scoop this car up will also receive a leather garment bag that can fold into a travel bag. Flare Yellow lining matches the car’s paint, and there’s double yellow stitching on the top hem. Everything else about the car is the same as usual, though. Under the hood is a 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 putting out 471 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque, all of which is sent to the rear wheels through a 10-speed automatic transmission. When it goes on sale in April, the 2019 Lexus LC 500 Inspiration Series will set you back a cool $106,210, about $14,000 more than a base model.

Closet Cosplay Mike Wrobels Jon Snow

first_imgEverything else from here is pretty simple. A really comfy red plaid flannel shirt with is the staple of any good 90s wardrobe. I think I got mine at H&M for around $20. There are nicer ones out there. Honestly, you should just have one of these in your closet already. It’s a requirement for everyone on the planet at this point, right? Decently priced at $35 too. You can be super DIY and just do tape with Nirvana written on it or you can grab the actual patch. You have to image Jonny would be rocking super classic black combat boots or Chuck Taylors. Again, I look for things to recycle for other characters. These are actually my Howling Commandos boots from Steve Madden. I’m going to recommend Chucks because, why are these not already in your closet?! Comfy, classic and anyone can rock them. Plus they last forever for $50. This might seem steep but they go with anything. I truly believe cosplay is for everyone and fully support what makes you feel good in your character. But as much as I love it, it can be a costly hobby. I’m fortunate that I get to work with and have gotten to know some of the best in this space of the Geek community. That being said, you can cosplay too and on a budget. All you need to start is on staple piece of the character and you build around that.The inspiration for this one is two-fold. First I’m a huge fan of artist Mike Wrobel’s series of Game of Thrones 80s/90s redesigns. I’m also a Stark so obviously I was drawn to Arya and Jon when I saw these. But then I found out there was a really great replica of Longclaw available at ThinkGeek. And this mash-up was born.The sword is available as both foam or metal. If you want to be extra, Valyrian-steel is out there, but it’ll cost you upwards of $200. I have to tell you the foam one is still pretty sturdy and has a good weight to it. I won’t judge you on how dedicated you’d like to be. This just means I know you’ll be rocking the Snow scar band-aid too. But hey, I know myself and I should not be given a real weapon.  Longclaw looks much bigger than it is because I’m vertically challenged at 5’3. Ironically it measures in at 53″. If you don’t have a Jeor to gift one this will set you back $50. It’s beautifully crafted and comes in a nice collector’s box. The detail on the direwolf handle is absolutely worth it, cute red eyes and all. Photos: Best Cosplay at San Diego Comic-Con 2019Photos: Best Cosplay From Anime NYC 2018 If you’d like to go all the way on Wrobel’s version, which I fully support, you’ll need a nice bat. Then you just sketch the best family name in GoT on it. So get yourself a genuine Louisville Slugger if you’re down for authenticity. It’s about $30.Foam Longclaw Replica/Baseball bat – $50-30, Red Plaid Flannel – $35, White Wolf Tee– $18,  Black Chuck Taylors– $50, Black Ripped Jeans – $40, Patch, Band-aid,  Etc. – $19The total package is about $212, but you are buying items you can use every day and recycle. These are all things you can bring into your life to let your Geekness show anywhere. This amount is if you need absolutely everything. You probably have a few items to start so that number will trickle down.Need some inspiration? We’ve seen so many amazing cosplayers this year so I’m sure you’ll find one you want to tackle one from FanExpo in Boston, C2E2 in Chicago, or Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle. Follow all our cosplay galleries here and give one a try. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. The white wolf tee was where I put most of my efforts. This was the closest version I could find and it’s actually pretty dang perfect. Jon’s four-legged bestie deserves a really good representation. Plus he’s the most striking of all the direwolves. (I still love you Nymeria.) This shirt is $18. I imagine this version of Jon would probably rock ripped up black denim jeans. I wore my HUE leather pants that are a staple for at least three other characters I do cosplay for. (See, recycling is key.) American Eagle carries one of my favorite pairs of jeans for dudes and dudettes in this vein. They are about $40 and less than the pants I’m in. Stay on targetlast_img read more

Top frameworks for building your Progressive Web Apps PWA

first_imgThe hype and rise of progressive web apps are tremendous. A PWA is basically a web application that feels like a native application to the user. By making your app a PWA, not only do you acquire new users, but you can also retain them for longer. Here’s a quick rundown of all things good about a PWA. Reliable: Loads instantly even under poor network conditions. Lighting fast and app-like: Responds to the user’s actions with speed and with a smooth interaction. Engaging and responsive: Gives the feeling that it was made specifically for that device, but it should be able to work across all platforms. Protected and secure: Served over HTTPS to make sure the contents of the app are not messed with. If you’re not already developing your next app as a PWA, here are 5 reasons why you should do that asap. And if you’re confused about choosing the best framework for developing your PWA, here are the top 3 frameworks available to make your next app a PWA. Ionic Ionic is one of the most popular frameworks for building a progressive web app. Let’s look at a few reasons why you should choose Ionic as your PWA framework Free and open-source:  Ionic is open source, and licensed under MIT. Open-source means developers can manage the code structure easily, saving time, money and efforts. They also have a worldwide community forum to connect with other Ionic developers, ask questions, and help out others. Cross-platform and one-codebase: Ionic allows seamless building of apps across popular operating systems, such as Android, iOS and Windows. It has a one codebase feature. This means apps are deployed through Apache Cordova with a single code base, and the application adapts automatically to the device it is functioning in. Rich UI: Ionic is equipped with pre-built components that are used to customize design themes and elements. It is based on SASS UI, with rich features to create fast, robust, interactive, native-like applications. Powerful functionality: Ionic is supported by Angular. The component API of Angular helps developers create interactive hybrid and web apps. Ionic is equipped with Cordova Plugins for accessing various native features, like Camera, GPS, and so on. It also features a powerful CLI for building, testing and deploying apps across multiple platforms. Read our Hybrid Mobile Development with Ionic to build a complete, professional-quality, hybrid mobile application with Ionic. You can also checkout Hybrid Mobile apps: What you need to know, for a quick rundown of all that is to know about a Hybrid mobile app. Polymer Google’s Polymer App Toolbox is another contender for the development of PWAs. It is a collection of web components, tools, and templates for building Progressive Web Apps. Blends PWAs with Web components Polymer allows developers to architect a component-based web app using Polymer and Web Components. Web components can form encapsulated and reusable custom HTML elements. They are independent of the frameworks because they are made of pure HTML/CSS/JS, unlike framework-dependent UI components in React/ Angular. The web components are provided through a light-weight Polymer Library for creating framework-independent, custom components. More features include: Responsive design using the app layout components. Modular routing using the elements. Localization with . Turnkey support for local storage with app storage elements. Offline caching as a progressive enhancement, using service workers. Build tooling to support serving the app multiple ways: unbundled for delivery over HTTP/2 with server push, and bundled for delivery over HTTP/1. Each component whether used separately or together can be used to build a full-featured Progressive web app. Most importantly, each component is additive. For a simple app one only needs the app-layout. As it gets more complicated, developers can add routing, offline caching, and a high-performance server as required. Read our Getting Started with Polymer book to create responsive web apps using Polymer. Angular Angular, probably the most popular front-end web application platform, can also be used to make robust, reliable, and responsive PWAs. Before the release of version 5, supporting progressive web apps in Angular required a lot of expertise on the developers’ part.Version 5 comes equipped with a new version of the Angular Service Worker for built-in PWA support. Angular 6 (released a few days back) has two new CLI commands. Both these versions make it very simple to make web application downloadable and installable, just like a native mobile application. Service Worker Updates With Angular 5 the development of Service Workers is becoming significantly easier. By using Angular CLI developers can choose to add Service Worker functionality by default. The Angular Service Worker functionality is provided by the module @angular/service-worker. Service worker can power up an application by only providing some JSON configuration instead of writing the code manually. The key difference with other service worker generators (like Workbox, sw-precache) is the fact, that you do not re-generate the service worker file itself, you only update its control file. New CLI commands Angular 6, also introduces two new commands apart from the service worker updates. The first, ng update, is a CLI command for updating dependencies and code. The second command, ng add, supports turning applications into progressive web apps, which support offline web pages. Apart from these frameworks, React is also a good alternative. Backed by Facebook, it has a Create-React-App generator which is the official scaffolding tool to generate a Reactjs App. Get started with Scott Domes’s Progressive Web Apps with React as your first step for building PWA applications. Yet another popular choice, would be Webpack. Webpack plugins can generate the service worker and manifest required for a PWA to be registered. It uses a Google project called Workbox which provides tools that help make offline support for web apps easier to set up. The bottom line is that the frameworks for building progressive web apps are growing and expanding at a rapid rate with regular updates every couple of months. Choosing a particular framework thus doesn’t make much difference to the app behavior. It only depends on the developer’s area of interest and expertise.

Potential snags industry reaction Air Canada set to buy Transat for 520

first_img MONTREAL — Air Canada and Transat A.T. Inc. have announced a deal valued at $520 million that should see Air Canada buy Transat A.T. Inc., however some of Transat’s biggest shareholders have indicated they’re not happy with the $13 per share offer.Meanwhile Transat President & CEO Jean-Marc Eustache is advising passengers that they can continue booking their flights and packages “with complete confidence, as all bookings will be honoured before and after the closing of the transaction.”News broke early Thursday morning that the two companies concluded a definitive Arrangement Agreement that provides for Air Canada’s acquisition of all issued and outstanding shares of Transat and its combination with Air Canada.The binding agreement was unanimously approved by Transat’s Board of Directors.“We are delighted to have reached this definitive agreement to combine Transat with Air Canada to achieve the best possible outcome for all stakeholders,” said Calin Rovinescu, President and Chief Executive Officer at Air Canada. “For shareholders of Transat and Air Canada, this combination delivers excellent value, while also providing increased job security for both companies’ employees through greater growth prospects.”Rovinescu also noted that Air Canada intends to preserve the Transat and Air Transat brands and maintain the Transat head office and its key functions in Montreal.“Travellers will benefit from the merged companies’ enhanced capabilities in the highly competitive, global leisure travel market and from access to new destinations, more connecting traffic and increased frequencies,” he added. “The Quebec economy will derive maximum advantage of having a Montreal-based, growth-oriented global champion in aviation, the world’s most international business.”More news:  War of words between Transat, Group Mach ramps upEustache added: “We are very pleased to join forces with such a successful player in our industry. The combination with Air Canada will give Transat new perspectives of growth, with the support of a strong network offering many options for connecting traffic. This fully-funded cash transaction is the ideal platform for Transat’s presence and jobs in Montreal, and therefore represents the best option for all our stakeholders: employees, suppliers, partners and shareholders.”While the deal got unanimous approval by Transat’s board, some of the company’s major shareholders remain dissatisfied with the price.Letko, Brosseau and Associates and PenderFund Capital Management, which jointly own a 21.1% stake, have said they would vote against the agreement if the purchase price remained at $13 per share.The agreement requires approval from two-thirds of Transat shareholders to go through. Quebec’s Fonds de solidarite FTQ, Franklin Templeton Investments, and the Caisse – Quebec’s pension fund manager – are also among the top five investors, collectively holding a 26.18 per cent stake.Air Canada and Transat’s combined 60% hold on the transatlantic market from Canada will also prompt an assessment from Canada’s Competition Bureau.On May 15, Air Canada and Transat entered negotiations toward a possible deal, giving them 30 days to finalize the details. In early June, Quebec-based real estate developer Groupe Mach announced that it too had entered a bid for Transat for $14 per share, which was turned down.The Air Canada deal includes a break fee of $15 million payable by Transat if it accepts a superior proposal. Air Canada must pay a reverse break fee of up to $40 million if the deal is cancelled because regulatory or governmental approvals are not obtained, subject to certain conditions.More news:  Transat calls Groupe Mach’s latest offer “highly abusive, coercive and misleading”If regulatory and shareholder approvals are obtained, the transaction is expected to be completed in early 2020.With a combined Air Canada – Air Transat, “prices will go up for Caribbean/Mexico and Europe”, says Niche Travel Group owner Faith Sproule in Dartmouth, NS. “If there is a destination city that has direct competition with WestJet, we may see the same prices (e.g. Gatwick, Paris, Dublin, Glasgow, Barcelona). I think that if Air Canada and Transat each have a flight and WestJet doesn’t do that route (Toronto to Lyon, for example), we will go down to one option and prices are going to jump.”She adds: “It looks like a good idea and good for the consumer on paper, but the prices will go from $1,100 to $1,400. I think we are looking at higher prices with everything if this merger happens.”Asked if he sees the deal as a positive move for the industry, Nexion Travel Group – Canada President Mike Foster says the answer is neither clear nor simple: “While the combined strengths of each company can lead to synergies and in turn a stronger company, there may indeed be an effect on pricing, route and loads. But I also believe that the natural forces of a free-enterprise economy means that new entrants could come in if the marketplace warrants or needs more competition.” Share Thursday, June 27, 2019 Posted by Travelweek Group Tags: Air Canada, Transat << Previous PostNext Post >> With file from The Canadian Press Potential snags & industry reaction: Air Canada set to buy Transat for $520 millionlast_img read more

Andhra Pradesh Tourism ropes in Ajay Devgn and Kajol as brand ambassadors

first_imgThe state of Andhra Pradesh, which is on a massive drive to draw investments and build a new capital, has now roped in Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn as its brand ambassador. His wife Kajol would reportedly be the co-promoter of the state.The Bollywood star had a chat with Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on movies, entertainment and business that he described as warm and delightful, and the CM was equally enthusiastic on Twitter about their lively meeting.Actor Ajay Devgn showed interest in investing in theme parks, resorts, water-based parks and the food processing sector. Devgn wants to put Amaravati, Andhra Pradesh’s up-and-coming capital on the frontlines of the global digital network with a media city – one that will feature film, HD TV and audio studios, digital post-production and media management services in the cloud.The Andhra Pradesh government has also approved a new policy for leasing out its land for tourism development activities. The state Cabinet, which met under the chairmanship of CM Naidu, approved the new policy under which land under 10 acres would be leased out through competitive bidding.“Two percent of the basic land value will be fixed as the base price and land would be allotted on lease to the highest bidder based on their technical and economic capacity,” informed Naidu.Depending on the size of investment for a tourism project, land would be given on an initial lease of 3 years. “If they do well, we will extend the lease for a further 33 years,” the CM added. The more the tourism sector will be developed, the more it would contribute to economic development of the state, Naidu pointed out.last_img read more
