Tired of Logging In to Twitter? Seamless App Integration On the Way

first_imgGuide to Performing Bulk Email Verification A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit mike melanson The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Related Posts center_img It’s been just about a year now since Twitter started using OAuth as a solution for connecting with third-party applications, but to this day we still find situations where we are asked to enter our user name and password.According to a blog post by a member of Twitter’s API/Platform team, we may not need to worry about this particular nuisance, and potential security hole, much longer.Raffi Krikorian, a self-professed “hacker, writer, and … tinkerer”, made some waves in the Twitter development arena late into last night with his blog post, which proposes a solution to a problem many developers have been keeping an eye on.“We really want to get people to switch over and stop using Basic Authentication when talking to our API in a production manner,” he writes. “Why? Basic Authentication is, simply, horribly insecure.”Here’s the problem, as Krikorian describes it:You’re an OAuth enabled Twitter client, and you’ve already authorized your user. You user wants to use a media providing service like TwitPic. TwitPic, currently, asks for the username and password of your user so it can store the photo on behalf of the Twitter user. You don’t have that username and password, so how do you give the ability to TwitPic to verify the identity of your user?Krikorian is proposing a solution he calls “OAuth identification delegation”, wherein the application your using, Tweetie in his example, passes along its OAuth authorization to TwitPic, which TwitPic can then use to verify its actions as authorized. Right now, using TwitPic requires you to enter your user name and password separately.For now, he says the idea is still in development, writing “once I think we’ve come upon the best solution, I’ll write this up more formally, as well as port it to OAuth WRAP/2.0 (where Twitter is headed).”Krikorian included a diagram of his solution and is soliciting feedback on his blog.OAuth Identity Veri?cation Delegation Example Work?ow v0.2 Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Tags:#news#twitter#web last_img read more

Root, line and sinker

first_imgDuring winter, when the Umsiang turns as transparent as glass, the Khasis, Karbis, Tiwas and Bodos, who live along the river, pick a day for traditional fishing. They then forage in the forest for the root of a mystery tree. It’s a well-kept secret, as none of them divulge the tree’s name.The collected roots are kept in a cool, dry place, and news spreads upstream to downstream by word of mouth. On the appointed day, villagers come to the river and perform a ritual. They beat the roots with sticks for a few minutes to let the juice poison the water. Stunned on ingesting the poison, the fish surface to the waiting nets and spears of the villagers.The effect of the poison lasts just a couple of hours, the narrow window to fish. The villagers say the fish is safe for consumption despite the poison. The practice, perhaps, originated in the upper ridge of Meghalaya, as the river flows down through the State’s boundary with Assam and meets the Brahmaputra. The Umsiang has a wider variety of fish than in other rivers in the region.last_img read more

And the city is taking to it like a fish to water. Whether it’s a traditional foot massage or an elaborate Ayurveda ritual, people,Gone are the maalishwallahs from the banks of the Hooghly, the age-old practice of an oil massage in its new avatar is here in Kolkata spas. And the city is taking to it like a fish to water. Whether it’s a traditional foot massage or an elaborate Ayurveda ritual, people in Kolkata are appreciating the nuances of holistic health. Top-end spas at luxury hotels have been doing brisk business since the early years of the past decade while standalone spas have lately started mushrooming in various parts of the city. However, at the end, it is the quality of the service that matters, point out spa owners and managers unequivocally. With people willing to pay anything for the best, competition is cut-throat. Fitness isn’t far behind either; the modern-day gymnasiums with a host of international branded fitness gear and loud chartbusters to boost the energy levels are drawing in hordes of people across various age groups. Adding to the fun are newer exercise techniques like Bollywood dance and krav maga, to name a few. Panelists choose spas with excellent packages and gyms with the best equipment. Simply Kolkata takes a look at the 10 best health and wellness facilities.Spa manager Sweta Tyagi at Club PranaClub PranaRating 8.5/10Rose petals, relaxing aromas, an air of quietude and refreshing energy greet guests at Club Prana. Spread across 12,000 sq ft, the place takes its name from the Sanskrit word for ‘life force’. The spa offers seven treatment rooms, named Prayag, Lotus, Marigold, Agni, Soundarya, Tulsi and Dhanwantari. Agni is used for couple treatment. Each treatment room, done up in light tones, is embellished with relevant knick-knacks to accentuate the atmosphere and the particular therapy being given. “The hydrotherapy sections is one of the finest in the city,” says spa manager Sweta Tyagi, 29. Various European treatments such as Swedish, aromatherapy, hot stone and deep tissue massages and Ayurveda therapies like Ilakizhi (hot herbal bundles), Udhwarthanam (body scrub) and Shirodhara (oscillation of warm medicated oil on the forehead) are on offer.

A single point of entry from the hotel lobby leads the guest to the spa, which has two therapy suites, a treatment room, a salon, separate wet sections for men and women and a well-equipped gymnasium. The spacious therapy suites are luxurious and relaxing and purple orchids on white linen add a refreshing touch. From the amount of pressure to the fragrance in the room or the oils applied, everything pertaining to any of the therapies or treatments can be customised. While the guest is being welcomed into the suites with a foot ritual, the therapist poses questions about any health issues or areas to avoid during any treatment. Guests can choose from bergamot, lemongrass, jasmine or eucalyptus for the incense and euphoria, melody or invigorating oil for the treatment. The lights are dimmed and soft instrumental music plays in the background while the therapist’s fingers begin to work their magic. “The tried and tested treatments make our guests return time and again,” says spa in-charge Lalchhanhimi Sailo, 30. “The Balinese treatment comes a close second to the Oberoi massage,” she adds.Where: The Oberoi Grand, 15 JL Nehru Road.Tel: 22492323; www.oberoihotels.comAmbience: Formal and stately, the spa radiates warmth and colonial charm.Training: The trainers undergo extensive training at any of the Oberoi Vilas properties.Royal treatment: The Oberoi therapy is a customised treatment routine for releasing muscular knots.Cost: Ranging from Rs 2,500 to Rs 10,500.Minu Budhia, the director at AddlifeAddlifeRating: 8/10It is hard to not get swayed by the grooving energy at Addlife when you see fitness enthusiasts on the treadmills or cross-trainers. The location of the gym works greatly to its advantage. Busy executives can have a quick workout before rushing off to work. When the 6,500 sq ft-gymnasium at the shopping and dining destination was up for grabs, director Minu Budhia, 46, seized the opportunity. However, she revamped the place to give it a more warm and comfortable look. Memberships to the gym aren’t easy to obtain, the director screens every member personally before giving admission. They are provided with customised fitness charts and exercise routines by the trainers. They can also avail therapeutic or relaxing massages and facials at the compact spa alongside the gymnasium. An interactive juice bar helps you grab a post-workout quick bite and healthy juices and salads.

Minimalism is the keyword in the architectural design. Cleanliness and natural light from almost all sides add to the spaciousness of the15000 sq ft area. Narrow corridors lined by wooden walls and cool black floors lend a warm and cosy look. Wooden beds used for Ayurveda treatments hang on the corridor walls. The relaxation area is magical in the evenings when rows of candles are lit.

With its holistic approach to beauty, health and wellness, Solace is a curious mix of two spaces. On the ground floor is the remarkably silent and soothing spa, the swimming pool and the energetic gymnasium while the activity studio above is abuzz every evening. Since its inception in September 2003, Solace has always pioneered the concept of wellness through its various initiatives, whether providing spa services at highly affordable rates or introducing the first Reebok-certified studio for aerobics. Evenings at the activity studio on the first floor are choc-a-bloc with programmes ranging from body sculpting and circuit training to pilates and krav maga. At the swimming pool, aqua aerobics and aquatherapy find maximum takers. “We will soon be introducing the rainbow programme, which is an amazing combination of yoga and colour therapy,” says manager Carolann Hooper, 39. The spa offers a wide range of facial and body treatments and massages using a variety of essential oils like rose, geranium, jasmine, mogra, sandalwood, lime and ginger, bitter orange and bergamot, eucalyptus and black pepper and camphor and fennel.Where: 4 Sunny Park.

The seven treatment rooms with different names and colour schemes include an Ayurvedic room called Ananda (green), a single suite, Soundarya (purple) and a suite for couples, Prem (red), besides Samriddhi and Gyaan (yellow) and Shiva and Shakti (blue).

Baid Group deals with textiles, jewellery, metals, lifestyle and electronics. Bringing together a spa by day and a lounge by night, Amoda gave Kolkatans a unique concept, when it opened in September 2009. However, the French windows in the reflexology area are a terrible let down.Where: Ground Floor, 22 Camac Street.Tel: 40013100, 40013899; www.amodaspa.asia.Ambience: The black granite floor, the white collage frames and graphic designs on the walls make for an interesting backdrop.Training: All the therapists are coached at the spa’s training unit.Royal treatment: The Amoda Destress massage soothes tense muscles and allows free flow of healing energy.Cost: Packages range from Rs 1,200 to Rs 4,000.A Thai massage in progressThai SpaRating: 7/10While four outlets of the Thai Spa chain are located in shopping destinations, namely South City, Mani Square, City Centre and Alipore Enclave, the fifth address is on Short Street. “When I introduced Thai Spa in 2008, a mall in a retail atmosphere wasn’t a common concept,” says owner Shrivardhan Daga, 33. The interiors of all the spas are more or less the same with little variation in terms of area and layout. Oriental figurines with folded palms and fragrances of essential oils welcome the guest to the 2,000 sq ft at Alipore spa with five treatment rooms. The interiors are minimalist yet inviting while Oriental music plays in the background. The ever-smiling Thai as well as Indian girls in traditional Thai costume offer various therapies almost without uttering a word. The treatments in the Nuat Thai techniques are inspired by the lessons of Lord Buddha’s physician, Jivaka Komalaboat. An hour-long Thai aroma foot spa comprises a green tea ginger foot soak and oriental herbal polish followed by a traditional Thai massage and stretching exercises. While reflexology and foot spas are the most popular treatments others services include Swedish, hot stone, Thai dry massage and aroma body detox.Where: 17/1F, 3rd floor, Alipore Enclave.Ph: 40070396/97; www.thethaispaindia.comAmbience: Dimly lit, restful and relaxing with gurgling sounds of water in the background.Training: Trainers from Thailand are flown in intermittently to train the therapists.Royal treatment: The Royal Thai body massage exerts pressure on specific points and works on muscles, ligaments and the spine.Cost: Prices range from Rs 450 to Rs 4,500.CEO MJ Robertson, Dr Inde and Dr KrishnaSanjeeva Medical Spa Rating: 9.5/10A sense of calm and well-being sweeps over the moment you step into Sanjeeva Medical Spa at Vedic Village. Overlooking the natural lake of Vedic Village, the French windows in the foyer ensure a harmonious confluence of the quiet indoors and the peaceful outdoors. On the floor of the lower level of the spa is the emblem of the circle of life that is emblazoned at strategic locations across the resort as well. Offering the choicest therapies in Ayurveda and naturopathy, the 15,000 sq ft spa has 14 treatment rooms and three onsite doctors, who treat evidence-based problems. “We have qualified Panchakarma (five different procedures used in Ayurveda, believed to purify the body) doctors with considerable experience in hospitals as well,” says CEO MJ Robertson, 60. Even before a guest arrives at Vedic Village, he is in touch with the doctors, who gather his medical history and decide on a course of treatment through video-conferencing or consultation at the city outlet in a leading hospital. While Ayurveda therapies include Abhyangam (basic Satvic massage), Swedanam (Ayurvedic steam bath), Padaghata (body massage using feet), various Shiropakrama (head and scalp treatments), Sandhi Paricharana (joint and spinal care) and Pancha-karma among others, the naturopathy and wellness treatments offer acupressure, deep tissues and therapeutic massages and exotic revitalising and detoxifying therapies.Where: Vedic Village, Shikharpur, Rajarhat.Ph: 66229900; www.thevedicvillage.comAmbience: Pristine natural beauty makes it the perfect haven to relax and rejuvenate.Training: The spa has three onsite doctors, who are MD’s Panchakarma therapies.Royal treatment: Aarogyam is a special face therapy with medicated oil and a herbal hair pack.Cost: Prices range from Rs 500 to Rs 12,000 for various treatments.Director Divya Himatsingka at Gold’s GymGold’s Gym Rating: 8.5/10A row of furiously moving treadmills frames one wall of the gymnasium while trainers in red motivate people on the floor at Gold’s Gym on JL Nehru Road. A man in blue helps a lady with her crunches, the colour of his T-shirt indicates that his hour as a personal trainer is reserved solely for one member. TV screens hang in front of the treadmills and stationary bikes so you could catch up on the day’s news updates or listen to music. Since it opened its doors on June 2006, Gold’s Gym has seen changing attitudes towards fitness among the people of Kolkata. “The awareness is more and people are keen on looking fit. Zumba, the Latin-inspired fitness programme has become quite a rage here,” says director Divya Himatsingka, 35. Besides the regular gym routines, there is a variety of group exercises like pilates, Bollywood dance, yoga, spinning and cy-yo that help break the monotony.
