iPhone : des subventions exagérées selon les opérateursFrance – Apple veut profiter du succès de l’iPhone pour augmenter les subventions faites par les opérateurs. Une manière de contre-carrer l’arrêt de l’exclusivité avec Orange, même si les intéressés critiquent cette méthode. Désormais, les opérateurs doivent verser à Apple une subvention supérieure de 2% à celle versée pour les autres smartphones, afin depouvoir vendre un iPhone. Apple souhaite appliquer cette pratique depuis que l’exclusivité avec Orange concernant la commercialisation du best-seller de la firme à la pomme a été cassée. Les opérateurs, en particulier Orange et SFR, ainsi que les constructeurs LG et Samsung, critiquent cette action. En plus de payer une subvention plus importante, les opérateurs devront partager les coûts de publicité et mettre en avant le produit en magasin et sur le Web. L’Autorité de la concurrence pourrait hériter de l’affaire. Le 14 janvier 2010 à 12:22 • Emmanuel Perrin
LONGVIEW — U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler and Democratic challenger Carolyn Long will face off at a forum in Woodland next month, but the Long campaign is calling for an opportunity for more vigorous debate.The Woodland Chamber of Commerce will host Herrera Beutler, R-Battle Ground, and Long at noon Sept. 18 at the Oak Tree Restaurant, 1020 Atlantic Ave., Woodland.The candidates will also participate in a forum hosted by Clark Vancouver Television, which will be recorded and then available on CVTV.org, according to a press release.The Long campaign said Monday that the format of many forums often don’t allow candidates or moderators the chance to fact-check, challenge positions or pose follow-up questions.In addition to the upcoming forums, the Long campaign said it wanted to schedule debates in every county sponsored by local media with an active moderator and the chance for the candidates to respond to each other.
More than a few dozen resolutions, spotlighting causes and honoring people, are signed every year by the Board of Clark County Commissioners.The resolution read Tuesday honoring an iconic Hazel Dell establishment was more lighthearted than most.Chairman Marc Boldt said it was a real privilege for him and Commissioners Steve Stuart and Tom Mielke to mark the 50th anniversary of Steakburger & Golf-O-Rama.Boldt, 57, said he was 5 or 6 years old when he first picked up a putter at Steakburger. He joked that exposure to miniature golf kept him from learning how to play golf, because he knew it wouldn’t be as much fun.“You saved me a lot of money,” Boldt told owners Merilyn and Bob Condon, who opened the former drive-thru restaurant on Jan. 1, 1962. Merilyn, 71, and Bob, 73, built the two 18-hole courses on wetlands behind the restaurant. Merilyn’s parents purchased the restaurant, because the owners of the drive-thru wouldn’t sell to Bob because they thought he was too young.The resolution said Steakburger was noted for “good food, good family fun and a great place for a first date” and recognized that “many generations of Clark County residents have had memorable and affordable miniature golf outings because of Steakburger’s presence in our community.”Stuart, who like Boldt grew up in Clark County, recalled fun times at Steakburger — with the exception of the infamous volcano hole, which got its own line in the resolution.

For the first time in the history of Indian television, Nach Baliye 9 will see ex-couples pairing up to compete against current partners to win the coveted trophy. Backed by Salman Khan, the new season will reportedly see Salman taking the judge’s seat as well. While fans are already excited to watch the ex-couples and their chemistry on stage, a new report says that Salman’s ex-girlfriend Sangeeta Bijlani will co-judge the show with the superstar. For those unaware, Salman and Sangeeta had plans to tie the knot more than 25 years ago.Salman met Sangeeta after she was crowned Miss India 1980. They both were quite serious about each other but the marriage was called off by the actress even though the wedding cards had been distributed. She then married former cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin in 1996 but got divorced in 2010.A source told Pinkvilla.com: “Last week, Salman Khan celebrated Sangeeta’s 46th birthday with style and great warmth at his Galaxy apartment in Bandra, along with some close friends. Since her move from Hyderabad to Mumbai, Sangeeta, has remained in touch with Salman and his family and is very close to his sister Alvira Agnihotri. Salman is not just the producer of Nach Baliye 9 but extremely hands-on in the creative department. It was his suggestion that they rope in Sangeeta as one of the judges on the show. The show has an interesting format this time – it is not just about couples but ex-couples too coming under the same roof, exes who have moved on with their lives and are friends today and he and Sangeeta have remained on good terms. They are good friends and sometimes even work out together at the gym. Sangeeta is often spotted at most of Salman’s family events and is extremely close to the Khandaan.” Nach Baliye 9TwitterThe source added: “Interestingly, Salman himself in the latest NB9 teaser promised to reveal all his relationship secrets on the show. In the promo, he asks, ‘Kya Salman ki agli film hogi unke kisi ex ke saath? Kaun hai wo badnaseeb jo hai Salman ka asli pyaar? Soch raha hun ki apne har relationship se parda utha hi doon. (Will Salman Khan’s next movie features his ex? Who’s the real love of Salman Khan? This time, I am thinking of unveiling all my relationship secrets).’ While the other women he has dated, are married, Sangeeta is the only person, who has maintained amicable relations with him and both are single. While people know about his closeness to Iulia Vantur, officially they have not come out as a couple.”If the report of Sangeeta joining Salman on Nach Baliye 9 turns out to be true, it would surely take the excitement of the fans to another level.
Protesters use barricades to block a road during a demonstration demanding Hong Kong’s leaders to step down and withdraw the extradition bill, in Hong Kong, China on 21 June 2019. Photo: ReutersThousands of people dressed in black rallied in Hong Kong on Friday after the expiry of a deadline protesters set for the government to scrap a controversial extradition bill — the latest wave of protests to rock the Chinese-ruled city.Demonstrators, mostly students, gathered peacefully outside the legislature in sweltering heat of about 30 degrees Celsius (86°Fahrenheit) to vent their anger and frustration at Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam who promoted, and then postponed the bill after mass protests last week.Some protesters on Friday tried to block key roads near the heart of the financial centre in scenes reminiscent of democracy protests in late 2014, sparking early morning traffic chaos.Lam’s suspension of the bill, that would allow people to be extradited to the mainland to face trial in courts controlled by the Communist Party, has done little to pacify opponents, who are demanding it be axed.”We want to fight for our freedom,” said high school student Chan Pak-lam, 17, outside Hong Kong’s political headquarters, which was temporarily shut on Friday due to security concerns.”We want the law to be withdrawn, not suspended. I will stay here until tonight, 10:00pm maybe. If the government doesn’t respond, we will come again.”Pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong speaks as people protest outside police headquarters, demanding Hong Kong’s leaders to step down and withdraw the extradition bill, in Hong Kong, China on 21 June 2019. Photo: ReutersMillions have clogged the streets of the financial hub this month to protest against the extradition bill, which they fear will erode Hong Kong’s legal system, triggering some of the most violent protests in decades when police fired rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse the crowds.The protesters on Friday demanded the government drop all charges against those arrested during last week’s violent protests, charge police with what they describe as violent action and stop referring to the protests as a riot.Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng became the latest government minister to apologise over the bill, which has plunged the former British colony into political turmoil.”Regarding the controversies and disputes in society arising from the strife in the past few months, being a team member of the government, I offer my sincere apology to all people of Hong Kong,” Cheng wrote in her blog on Friday.”We promise to adopt a most sincere and humble attitude to accept criticisms and make improvements in serving the public.”Protesters block a road during a demonstration demanding Hong Kong’s leaders to step down and withdraw the extradition bill, in Hong Kong, China on 21 June 2019. Photo: ReutersFears of China MeddlingSince it returned to Chinese rule in 1997, Hong Kong has been governed under a “one country, two systems” formula that allows freedoms not enjoyed in mainland China, including a much-cherished independent judiciary.But many accuse China of obstructing democratic reforms, interfering with elections and of being behind the disappearance of five Hong Kong-based booksellers, starting in 2015, who specialised in works critical of Chinese leaders.Embattled Lam has stopped short of axing the bill, unnerving many who fear the law could put them at the mercy of the mainland Chinese justice system which is plagued by torture, forced confessions and arbitrary detentions. Courts in mainland China are controlled by the Communist Party.While Lam admitted shortcomings over the bill and said she has heard the people “loud and clear”, she has rejected repeated calls to step down. The snowballing backlash has raised questions over Lam’s ability to govern effectively.Concerns over the extradition bill spread quickly from initially democratic and human rights groups to the wider Hong Kong community, including pro-establishment business figures, some usually loath to contradict the government.Some Hong Kong tycoons have started moving personal wealth offshore over the extradition bill.Protesters occupy a main road outside the government headquarters in Hong Kong on 21 June 2019. Photo: AFP”Don’t Give Up”As protesters sat or lay chatting outside the government headquarters, one activist read out a letter sent from a Taiwan student in support of the demonstrators.”Brave HKers, perhaps when faced with adversity, we are all fragile and small, but please do not give up defending everything that you love, please believe your efforts are meaningful and powerful,” the protester read through a loud hailer, as the crowds clapped and cheered.Beijing has never renounced the use of force to take over self-ruled Taiwan, which it regards as a recalcitrant, breakaway province. Many have waved Taiwan flags at recent demonstrations in Hong Kong, images certain to rile authorities in Beijing.Taiwan, overwhelmingly opposed to a “one country, two systems” formula for itself, has voiced support for Hong Kong.After promises that post-handover Hong Kong should enjoy a high degree of autonomy, Beijing’s squeeze has fuelled widespread resentment and in 2014 sparked pro-democracy protests that paralysed parts of the city for 79 days.
The quality of the DLC packs that appear for games varies wildly, from the genuinely worthwhile right down to “this should have shipped with the original game” features. The DLC packs just announced for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt definitely fall into the former category, in fact, they are promising to add a whole new game’s worth of content.The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set for release on May 19 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and developer CD Projekt Red is now finishing up work on the main game and turning its attention to expansion packs. Two such packs are planned: Hearts of Stone arriving October 2015, and Blood and Wine scheduled to appear at some point in the first quarter of 2016. These are on top of the 16 free DLC extras every player will receive after the game launches.Hearts of Stone is promising brand new adventures for hero Geralt, which includes 10 hours of gameplay in No Man’s Land and Oxenfurt to complete a contract handed out by the Man of Glass. Then Blood and Wine is promising another 20 hours of gameplay in a new region of the game called Toussaint. It’s expected to be a very different, tranquil location in stark contrast to what has been seen before.As well as the new adventures, CD Projekt Red is promising a large range of new gear to use, as well as some new enemies to fight — and you don’t have to wait to purchase these DLC packs. An Expansion Pass is being offered, which can be purchased separately if you’ve already pre-ordered the game, or with the game as one complete package.If you consider that the main game is expected to be a 50-hour experience minimum for the storyline, but anywhere up to 120 hours for the completist, these two expansion packs will mean 80-150 hours total. That’s a lot of content, and CD Projekt Red should be commended for committing to it, as well as creating genuinely new content after the launch of the game rather than holding content back for DLC.
Stay on target Red Dead Redemption 2 Isn’t BoringThe Best Western-Themed Video Games Ever Released It has been a very long time since Rockstar Games released a trailer for Red Dead Redemption II. Today, the company has finally revealed new footage of their highly anticipated game. This video spotlights the central character along with his band out outlaws. It also confirms Red Dead Redemption II is a prequel to its highly successful predecessor.The star of this particular trailer is a man named Arthur Morgan. Working for the Van Der Linde gang, Morgan is a ruthless outlaw who steals money from innocents while running from the law. If you’ve played Red Dead Redemption then you’ll recognize the Van Der Linde gang. This is the same crew protagonist John Marston associated with. In fact, the trailer ends with Morgan speaking with the outlaw leader, Dutch Van Der Linde. This is a man fans of the previous title will remember very well.In usual Rockstar fashion, this trailer is merely a tease. We know Red Dead Redemption II will feature a vast open world and some form of multiplayer. We also know it will feature seven outlaws (who are presumably part of the Van Der Linde gang). Outside of that, however, there isn’t much information to chew on. I have no doubt Rockstar will eventually release a trailer spotlighting game features. We’ll just have to wait a bit longer for that I suppose.Red Dead Redemption II was originally set to release this year. Rockstar has since pushed back the release date to Spring of 2018. Having the date moved to next year certainly stings, but if it makes for a better (and more stable) product then that’s perfectly acceptable. Let’s just hope we don’t have to wait too long for the next trailer. Based off everything we’ve seen so far, it looks like Rockstar is set to deliver something special.Red Dead Redemption II will release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Through his company Global Research Technologies, based in Tucson, Lackner has built an early model and hopes to have a fully working prototype within three years.As Lackner explains, the technology is similar to that used at coal plants to capture carbon from flue stacks, but can be used anywhere. Lackner notes that half of carbon emissions come from small sources, including cars and airplanes, and is usually nearly impossible to collect. But since the carbon dioxide in the air is actually very concentrated, the device required to collect it can be fairly small. Lackner’s goal is to make the synthetic tree highly efficient for its size. Compared to the amount of carbon dioxide that a large windmill can avoid generating, for example, a synthetic tree of equal size could collect several hundred times the amount of carbon dioxide that the windmill avoids. Each synthetic tree would cost about $30,000 to build, with most of the cost due to the technology used to release the carbon dioxide from the sorbent. In addition, since the device requires energy to operate, it also generates some carbon itself if plugged into the power grid. Lackner calculated that, for every 1000 kg of carbon dioxide the synthetic tree collects, it emits 200 kg, so that 800 kg are considered true collection.via: CNet News© 2009 PhysOrg.com First Successful Demonstration of Carbon Dioxide Air Capture Technology Achieved A synthetic tree could collect carbon coming from small, distributed sources, which is usually very difficult to collect. Credit: Global Research Technologies. (PhysOrg.com) — Scientists have designed a synthetic tree that traps carbon dioxide from the air in an attempt to combat growing emissions. The device looks less like a tree and more like a small building, but it can collect carbon about 1,000 times faster than a real tree. One synthetic tree could absorb one ton of carbon dioxide per day, an amount equivalent to that produced by about 20 cars, on average. After being trapped in a chamber, the carbon would be compressed and stored in liquid form for sequestration.

Florida’s Housing Crisis Deepened by Puerto Rico Evacuees Over three months after Hurricane Maria made landfall on the island of Puerto Rico, half of the island’s 3.4 million citizens are still without power, and many without access to clean drinking water or adequate health care. While the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers forecasts many more months of work required before the island’s electrical grid is repaired, many Puerto Ricans are choosing to leave their home, at least temporarily—and one of the most popular and logical destinations for evacuation is Florida. Unfortunately, the Orlando Weekly reports that this is exacerbating an already existing affordable housing crisis in the Sunshine State, with no easy answers as to how to resolve it.A December 2017 New York Times article also highlighted an impending foreclosure epidemic in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of the disaster. Per data collected by Black Knight, Inc., almost one-third of Puerto Rican homeowners were behind on their mortgage, and 90,000 had become delinquent due to Hurricane Maria.According to a National Low Income Housing Coalition study cited by cited by the Orlando Weekly, the Orlando metropolitan area ranks third in the U.S. when it comes to affordable rental homes, with only 18 affordable rental units available per 100 low-income families. With nearly 300,000 Puerto Ricans having arrived in Florida (per the state’s Division of Emergency Management), the situation is only getting worse.With Florida already straining to accommodate the evacuees, state and local government is struggling not only with the influx of humanity, but with a web of bureaucracy at every turn. The Orlando Weekly reports that in December Florida legislators sent letters to both FEMA and the Puerto Rican government asking for extra housing aid. On December 18, Sen. Victor Torres (D-Orlando) and several other Democratic lawmakers asked Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló to request an extension of FEMA’s Transitional Shelter Assistance program, which pays for hotel and motel accommodations while those affected by a disaster search for long-term housing.Torres’ letter read, in part, “We know you are diligently working on recovery efforts in Puerto Rico, but we must also coordinate with your government for relief services needed in Florida. It has become apparent that in order for us to get financial assistance from the federal government, specific requests for that assistance must be made by your government on behalf of those residents of Puerto Rico now residing in Florida.”The FEMA TSA program will expire for Puerto Rican evacuees on January 13. Puerto Rico’s government has requested a 60-day extension. José Marrero, the Puerto Rican governor’s representative to FEMA, said in a statement, “The government of Puerto Rico, while enduring a lengthy and arduous recovery effort at home, is committed to providing and facilitating federal assistance to its temporarily displaced residents.”According to the Orlando Weekly, FEMA spokesperson Daniel Llargués said last week that Puerto Rico’s request for a TSA extension was “still under review.”After a damaging hurricane season, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development in late 2017 announced grants of $5 billion to Texas and $615.9 million to Florida, designed to help those communities recover from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Those grants were part of a $7.4 billion block allocated to provide disaster relief to both of those states as well as Puerto Rico and California, which has been ravaged by wildfires in recent months.

The 2019 Appetite for Excellence winners were announced last night at an awards ceremony at Glass Brasserie, Hilton Sydney. All three winners across the categories are currently working in restaurants outside of major cities, and of the five winners and ones to watch, four are female. Now in its 14th year, the national awards program continues to attract the best of Australia’s food industry each year, to celebrate and nurture young talent and the future of the hospitality industry. The 2019 applications were of an incredibly high standard yet again. Luke Mangan, co-founder of Appetite for Excellence said: “Every year I am blown away by the level of talent that comes through the program. More impressive though is the passion that each of these national finalists has for what they do. We had a group that was nothing short of outstanding and proved to me how valuable the time we as the judges spend with the group can be, hopefully guiding them to make the best decisions in their career and helping to set them up for successful careers in Australia’s restaurants.” The 2019 Perrier Aperitivo competition winner is Matty Opai from Icebergs Dining Room and Bar.The 2019 Appetite for Excellence winners2019 Appetite for Excellence Young Chef Winner: Bianca Johnston, Tom McHugo’s TASOne to Watch: Anna Ugarte-Carral, Momofuku Seiobo NSW2019 Appetite for Excellence Young WaiterWinner: Olivia Evans, Fleet NSWOne to Watch: Sophie Gitterle, Quay Restaurant NSW2019 Appetite for Excellence Young RestaurateurWinner: Luke Piccolo, Limone Dining NSWAwards judging is a two-month process, with this year’s judges including Jo Barrett, Peter Gilmore, Guy Grossi, Analiese Gregory, Luke Mangan, Dan Hunter, Martin Benn, Kylie Javier-Ashton, Phil Wood, Dan Puskas, Andrew McConnell, Danielle Gjestland, Lisa van Haandel, James Viles, Troy Rhoades-Brown, Richard Ousby and Marilyn Annecchini. Prior to the awards ceremony, the national finalists came together for the annual produce tour – three days of workshops and hands on learning experiences with producers, which this year took place in NSW across the Southern Highlands and South Coast. The judges included “I believe it is important to have programs like Appetite for Excellence for the next generation to give them great experience and potential exposure that could help shape their career,” said Peter Gilmore, who has been involved with the program for nine years. Of the judging process, Gilmore said: “There is definitely a system the judges use for scoring that covers things you’d expect like taste, presentation etc. But we also trust our instincts when it comes to choosing the winner. It’s sometimes pretty obvious the young chefs that have that little bit extra – positivity, openness and passion.” In addition to the chef, waiter and restaurateur categories, Appetite for Excellence and Perrier challenge Australia’s bartenders to create a modern Perrier Aperitivo cocktail using Perrier mineral water. This year’s competition was judged by two of Australia’s best bartenders: Luke Ashton, Diageo’s 2013 World Class Bartender of the Year and owner of This Must Be The Place and Jenna Hemsworth, Head Bartender at Restaurant Hubert, 2018 Australian Bartender of the Year and 2019 Australian Bacardi Legacy Champion.

Other names to consider:• Mike Wallace: The speedster, who is 31, probably would have fit better in Arizona if Bruce Arians was still the head coach. He caught 52 passes for 748 yards and four touchdowns in 2017.• Kendall Wright: The 28-year-old put up decent numbers with the Bears last season, catching 59 passes for 614 yards and a touchdown.• Brice Butler: Butler has good size (6-foot-3, 220 pounds) but hasn’t produced big numbers in five years in the league with Oakland and Dallas. Over the last two seasons, Butler had only 31 catches for Dallas, but six of them went for touchdowns — four of which were red-zone scores. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo But there is a position that hasn’t been touched just yet: Wide receiver.The Cardinals have seen two of their own free agents leave, and that was probably by design. John Brown signed a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens, while Jaron Brown hooked on with the division-rival Seattle Seahawks.Larry Fitzgerald, J.J. Nelson and Chad Williams, who played just 98 offensive snaps as a rookie last season, are the only receivers on the roster who saw playing time a year ago.Finding capable pass catchers remains an item that needs attention for Arizona.There was an early run on receivers when free agency opened on March 14. Jarvis Landry, who had been franchised by Miami, was traded to the Cleveland Browns. Allen Robinson inked a deal with the Bears while Sammy Watkins cashed in on a massive contract with Kansas City.There are still a few targets that could make sense for Keim and the Cardinals, should they choose to pursue a free-agent receiver.Tuesday, it was reported that Jacksonville is cutting veteran Allen Hurns. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound Hurns is just two years removed from a breakout season during which he caught 64 passes for 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns — ranking among the league’s leaders. He has been slowed by injuries the past couple seasons and has been limited to just 74 grabs over 21 games since the beginning of 2016. Terrelle Pryor, who topped the 1,000-yard plateau in 2016 before a disastrous season in Washington, remains unsigned. The converted quarterback has visited with the Seahawks and the Jets as he looks for a new home. While he’s still learning the nuances of the position, his size (6-foot-4, 228 pounds) and athletic ability are very intriguing.Veteran Eric Decker, 31, also remains unsigned. Decker’s production took a dip in 2017, his first season in Tennessee. He caught 54 passes for 563 yards and only one touchdown in the Titans’ run-heavy scheme. Decker has played in the slot — a position manned by Fitzgerald — so his fit in Arizona could be questioned. Decker was erroneously linked to New Orleans, but is actually visiting the Oakland Raiders as free agency rolls on.Related LinksFree agent WR Jordan Matthews visiting Arizona CardinalsThe Cardinals have shown interest in free agent Jordan Matthews, formerly of the Eagles and Bills. Matthews had knee and ankle injuries which hampered his one and only season in Buffalo and limited him to just 25 catches for 282 yards and a touchdown. In his first three seasons in Philadelphia, the former second-round pick racked up 225 catches for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns.
