Firefox Creates a Smarter Browser Bar

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A new add-on to Firefox combines resources location and category search to the toolbar while protecting your browsing activity.AwesomeBar HD is a spin-off from the Home Dash project designed by Mozilla developer Edward Lee to improve browsing and content discovery without the use of a toolbar. AwesomeBar is the opposite of Home Dash: instead of getting rid of the toolbar, it makes the address bar much more intuitive.The AwesomeBar makes searching from the toolbar more semantic by allowing the user to search the Web via categories. Search movies, sports or people through the most pertinent sites pertaining to the topic. Say you want to search maps. Hover your cursor over the maps tag in the tool bar and a pull-down menu with Google Maps, Bing Maps or MapQuest appears. The references tag will allow you to search Wikipedia, Answers.com or Dictionary.com and so forth.AwesomeBar taps into the specialized search offered by those sites and returns more granular results than if you were just trying a Google search from a generic toolbar.In terms of privacy, Firefox will not send input to a remote server. Here is the explanation in the introductory video:“Instead, when you browse to a previously visited page, Firefox will only look through its local history without any network activity. The results come back in an order that looks at both how frequently and how recently you’ve been to the pages in addition to some adaptive learning for a bit of awesome.”One problem that we noticed is that the address bar does not save the URL of the site you are on once you get there. Instead, there is a blank spot ready for the next query. For people who regularly copy and paste links from the address bar that becomes a problem. Lee is open to feedback and the tools are still in experimental mode. If you have suggestions, head on over to his page and let him know. If you want to see the code for the AwesomeBar, Lee has posted it on GitHub.

CWG scam: MS Gill, Sunil Dutt had warned PM on Suresh Kalmadi

first_imgFormer sports minister Mani Shankar Aiyar wasn’t the only one to raise an alarm about Suresh Kalmadi. New revelations are bound to further embarrass the Prime Minister’s Office.   Former sports ministers M.S. Gill and the late Sunil Dutt had also red flagged the former Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chief and his methods. In a letter dated September 26, 2007, Gill had pointed out the astonishing jump in costs for holding the Games and hinted at gross mismanagement. Gill had written, “At the time of the agreement, they were to be about Rs 200 crore. It is now something less than Rs 800 crore and we are coming to the Cabinet soon for something above Rs 1600 crore. In the past, the (Organising) Committee rarely met and generally endorsed post-facto decisions, taken in a highly centralised system.” As far back as 2004, late Sports Minister Sunil Dutt had lodged a strong protest against the appointment of Suresh Kalmadi, now sacked and languishing in jail. Dutt had written: “I was surprised to see newspaper reports about a resolution passed by Indian Olympic Association (lOA) regarding appointment of President, lOA as Chairman of the Organising Committee, which is at variance with the decisions taken in the GOM meeting.” Headlines Today had broadcast letters written by Aiyar, warning the PM of financial bungling by the Kalmadi-led OC. In the letter written on October 25, 2007 Aiyar had written: “I grow increasingly alarmed at the profligacy of CWG OC Chairman. Present projections of CWG expenditure have topped Rs 20,000 crore!” Aiyar had even contested the PM’s claim that his objections were merely ideological. “Hope this refreshes his memory,” Aiyar said.  Caught in a bind, the then MoS in the PMO, tried to clear the air in vain. Prithivraj Chavan says, “I am not aware what Mani Shankar Aiyer has said. There are many things which are said. I would have to see what he had said. It was a courtesy meet. There were certain pending issues.” BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said despite the letters, “the loot was on”. advertisementlast_img read more

What To Look For In An NBA Draft Prospect

Center60—1810 REB3.0 BLK—0.2 If a player tops all of these benchmarks, he’s a decent prospect. If he falls below in any one category, that’s a red flag. The further below the number he falls, the less of a prospect he is. That’s just the starting point, though — I’m flexible in cases like that of a young player who has improved during the year, or a player who has been better in past seasons. The benchmarks aren’t a strict line, but more of a guideline. I try to look at the whole picture.NP: How did you determine those benchmarks?EW: I determined them based on the success of past college prospects. Historically, most successful draftees have met most or all of these benchmarks. Most successful prospects were more complete players in college. Most busts had a flaw in one of these areas.I’ve been doing it this way since the 2007 draft, so it’s probably time to update the system a little for the changing NBA. I hope to get on that this summer.NP: What was your strongest finding, in terms of numbers that correlate with future success?EW: The strongest finding is that it’s important to show as many different skills as possible — including scoring, rebounding, passing and defense — regardless of position.NP: What was the most surprising finding?EW: To me, it was that scoring frequently is more important than scoring efficiently, especially for wing players.NP: Are there certain player archetypes that tend to have better or worse careers than their draft position would suggest?EW: Wooden Award winners have included a few recent busts, particularly when it went to a junior or senior.NP: So that might not be good news for Buddy Hield.EW: Buddy Hield fits the profile this year. For the record, I do like Hield as a prospect a lot better than other recent winners, such as Doug McDermott or Jimmer Fredette. But he is a little overvalued in the top five, where the mock drafts have him going.NP: Speaking of which, how much should we focus on a player’s age when evaluating him as a prospect? A couple of the top college guards in this year’s class — Hield and Kris Dunn — stand out as particularly old, but does that mean they have less of a ceiling?EW: Yes, it does. A freshman who posted numbers like Hield and Dunn had this year would be a better prospect. But the fact that both improved like they did is a good sign for their futures, because it shows both a work ethic and the intelligence to identify a weakness in their game and do what is necessary to fix it. The age issue really seems to come into play with fifth-year seniors. That’s the thing that makes me uneasy about ranking Gary Payton II so highly.NP: What do you make of Ben Simmons? Were the Sixers right to promise him the No. 1 overall pick?EW: Simmons is a unique player, and for that reason he’s a little difficult to judge. I can’t point to previous players with numbers similar to his, because there were no players like this. I love his combination of offense, rebounding and passing. My concern is that his low number of blocks indicates he’s a poor defender. But I think drafting Simmons is the right move, based on the stats. His upside is higher than any other player.NP: Are there any other players this year that jump out to you as particularly over- or underrated by the mainstream draft media?EW: Based on the mock drafts, Marquese Chriss stands out as insanely overrated. Malachi Richardson and Damian Jones are a couple of others who don’t belong in round one. As far as underrated prospects, Payton and Chinanu Onuaku are players the mocks tend to list in round two who should be first-rounders. And Villanova’s Daniel Ochefu and Louisiana Tech point guard Alex Hamilton are a couple of players who might go undrafted, but deserve a chance. PER 40 MINUTES Small forward503018——5.0 ASB0.6 POSITION2PT%3PT%POINTSAST/REBSTL/BLKOTHERAST:TO Shooting guard503020—1.3 STL7.0 RSB0.8 Ed Weiland is one of my favorite NBA draft analysts on the Web, but he doesn’t work for ESPN or any other major outlet. Instead he writes for the small indie blog Hoops Analyst, posting his position-by-position breakdowns as an outsider in a manner that has drawn comparisons to an early-career Bill James. (You might even remember his 15 minutes of fame as the truck driver who foresaw Jeremy Lin’s potential years before Linsanity.) During the embryonic stages of basketball analytics, his draft analyses were among the first I encountered to draw correlations between a player’s statistical traits in college and his success (or lack thereof) in the pros.In this email exchange, which has been lightly edited, I asked Weiland about the numbers he uses to judge draft prospects — and what their implications might be for the players selected in Thursday night’s draft.

I always liked predicting and projecting young players. That probably came from growing up a Chicago sports fan in the 1970s; it was a dry decade for the local teams, and the draft was the highlight of the year. And when I started seriously playing around with basketball stats as a hobby about 20 years ago, I began to gravitate toward the draft because there wasn’t a lot of statistical draft analysis going on at the time.NP: In general, which key metrics/characteristics are the most important to look at for each position, and why?EW: I have certain statistical benchmarks that a prospect needs to reach for each position. Specifically, the following shooting percentages and per-40-minute numbers, adjusted for pace: ASB = assists + steals + blocks; RSB = rebounds + steals + blocks; SB = steals + blocksSource: Ed Weiland read more

Cheshire Hall explains Monday power outage at hospital

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 06 Oct 2015 – Late Monday afternoon electricity was restored at the Cheshire Hall Medical Center according to the Public Relations official, Takara Bain, after being off for about 90 minutes. The humidity in the building demanded that water be given out to patients in an effort to keep them cool and hydrated and Bain says, the back-up plan would have been to transfer patients to the Cockburn Town Medical Center in Grand Turk. It is the second power failure at Cheshire Hall reported in recent months; it was explained that FortisTCI was working with the hospital to figure out the power failure. Generators did work, but only for a short time.
