More specifically, on a full charge, the Toshiba system is reportedly capable of powering lighting equipment (100W), refrigerator (160W), TV (150W) and personal computer (30W) for about 12 hours. Recharging takes about five hours. A rapid-charge mode cuts it down to two hours. The output power of the eneGoon is 3.0kVA, which Toshiba claims is the highest output power of a home-use electricity storage system in the industry The system’s key component is Toshiba’s “SCiB” lithium-ion rechargeable battery which has a capacity of 6.6kWh, considered relatively high for a home battery system. Since 2010, Toshiba has promoted its ability to put battery technology on the fast track with the SCiB, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. The company says its advantages include minimal capacity loss, a high level of safety, and long life of more than 6,000 charge-discharge cycles, along with high power output performance.Toshiba Lighting and Technology will launch eneGoon in November in Japan. There was no information on pricing at the time of this writing. According to Tech-On, the eneGoon’s maximum power output is 3.0kVA and it can power appliances up to 200V. The product is going to appear in November in Japan but that does not deter outsiders from taking an interested look at what Toshiba has developed, at a time when better solutions for storage batteries that can cost less and do more, longer, are goals everywhere. © 2012 Phys.org Explore further Toshiba’s SCiB rechargeable battery selected for new electric vehicles This document is subject to copyright.

The company plans to roll out a home storage battery system that can keep appliances running for a good part of the day. Toshiba Corp and Toshiba Lighting and Technology Corp have developed a storage battery system that makes use of the company’s technology for rechargeable batteries. The system is called eneGoon, and it can do the work in the event of a power shortage to power up the gamut of frequently used household appliances Toshiba says eneGoon can powering a home dweller’s refrigerator, TV, PC, and lights for 12 hours on a full charge.

DOI: 10.1016/j.egypro.2017.03.1686 (Phys.org)—New Zealand energy analyst Steve Goldthorpe has published a paper in the journal Energy Procedia suggesting that carbon dioxide pulled from the atmosphere (or scrubbed from coal plant smoke stacks) could be stored permanently in deep ocean trenches. Once there, he notes, the gas would become a liquid denser than ocean water, which would cause it to fall naturally to the ocean floor, creating an underwater lake. More information: Steve Goldthorpe. Potential for Very Deep Ocean Storage of CO 2 Without Ocean Acidification: A Discussion Paper, Energy Procedia (2017). DOI: 10.1016/j.egypro.2017.03.1686AbstractCarbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is an essential contributor to the mitigation of climate change. CCS will require vast CO2 storage capacity. At present only geological storage is being considered. This paper revisits an alternative CO2 storage possibility in enclosed basins on the deep and very deep ocean floor. For example, the Indonesian Sunda trench, the Japanese Ryukyu trench and the Puerto Rico trench are more than 6 km deep. If liquid CO2 were to be placed in such a trench, it would be 7% more dense than seawater and could remain permanently as a lake of liquid CO2 on the ocean floor, possibly becoming a solid hydrate over time which could inhibit mixing between the stored CO2 and ocean currents. At depths greater than about 4 to 5 km metres, seawater is under-saturated in calcium carbonate, so ocean ecosystems are significantly different. Any impact on deep marine fauna would need to be investigated. The London Dumping Convention has provisions for disposal of material into the ocean provided the absence of adverse effects can be proven. Deep ocean CO2 entrapment is more certain than geological CO2 storage in deep aquifers. A CO2 delivery concept by ship and vertical pipe is suggested for exploratory trials, with subsea pipelines for permanent installations, which might be much cheaper than geological CO2 storage. There is vast capacity for storage of CO2 in the world’s very deep ocean trenches. The Sunda trench below 6 km has the capacity to accommodate 19,000 gigatonnes of liquid CO2, which is greater than the CO2 yield from all currently known global fossil fuel reserves. The Puerto Rico trench has capacity for 24,000 Gt of liquid CO2 deeper than 7 km. Enclosed basins of limited area could easily accommodate captured CO2. China has the largest potential demand for CO2 storage from power generation and industrial sources, which could be 3 Gt per year by 2050. The Ryukyu trench, which is 700 km from the Chinese coast and is in Japanese water, has two sections deeper than 7 km. Those sections of the Ryukyu trench would have the capacity to accommodate all the CO2 captured in China at 3 Gt per year for over 200 years. In the event that very deep ocean storage of CO2 is found to be practicable and acceptable, the minimum practical depth would need to be determined as a criterions for acceptable additional storage locations. For consideration, there is an enclosed basin on the floor of the Mediterranean Sea 60 km off Southern Greece, with capacity for 84 Gt of CO2 deeper than 4.5 km. Also, there is an enclosed basin in the Arabian Sea, 320 km south west of Karachi, with capacity for 86 Gt of CO2 deeper than 3.5 km. The potential storage of CO2 in such locations would be temperature dependent. The global CCS community has previously considered ocean storage of CO2 on the basis of ultimate dissolution and dispersion of CO2 in ocean water. Those studies have dismissed ocean storage as environmentally unacceptable due to ocean acidification. This paper postulates that very deep ocean trenches (>6 km) and deep ocean floor depressions (>4 km) are environments for CO2 storage, where permanent storage without dissolution, acidification or adverse effects on fauna may be possible. The purpose of this paper is to pose the question “Why not?” to the CCS community and to suggest that active research is timely. In order to prevent serious changes to our planet, most scientists agree that we need to stop pumping greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere—and we should probably start trying to remove at least some of what we have already put there. But where would put it? We cannot just dump it somewhere, because it is a gas and would simply make its way back into the atmosphere. Some have suggested injecting it into spent natural gas wells or other underground vacancies. Goldthorpe suggests that perhaps the ocean would be a better option, noting that at depths of 3000 meters, the density of carbon dioxide is greater than that of ocean water, which means it would sink. Ideally, it would sink into a hole of some sort so that it would not spread across the ocean floor. Ocean trenches, he notes, could serve that purpose. They would fill like an empty bucket with water here on land, creating a lake of carbon dioxide. He adds that it is possible that over a long time period, the carbon dioxide would solidify.Goldthorpe takes his idea even further by offering some possible sites—he used Google Earth to check for suitable candidates. He notes that Sunda trench, which is 6 kilometers below the surface in an area south of the Indonesian archipelago would be a good choice. He’s calculated that it could hold 19 trillion tonnes of liquified carbon dioxide, which, he notes, is more than all of the carbon dioxide that humans have injected into the atmosphere to date. He notes also that the idea is not out of the blue—natural carbon dioxide lakes already exist on the ocean floor. Other possibilities might include the Japanese Ryuky trench or the Puerto Rico trench.Goldthorpe concludes by acknowledging that much more study would have to be done before serious consideration, particularly to prevent the top portions from spreading or causing an increase in ocean acidity.

Read the whole story: ACLU A new study, however, strongly suggests that these products are built on a bed of intellectual quicksand. The key question is whether human emotions can be reliably determined from facial expressions. “The topic of facial expressions of emotion — whether they’re universal, whether you can look at someone’s face and read emotion in their face — is a topic of great contention that scientists have been debating for at least 100 years,” Lisa Feldman Barrett, Professor of Psychology at Northeastern University and an expert on emotion, told me. Emotion recognition is a hot new area, with numerous companies peddling products that claim to be able to read people’s internal emotional states, and AI researchers looking to improve computers’ ability to do so. This is done through voice analysis, body language analysis, gait analysis, eye tracking, and remote measurement of physiological signs like pulse and breathing rates. Most of all, though, it’s done through analysis of facial expressions.
Kolkata: The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) is all set to form ‘Hardship Redressal Committee’ (HRC) for examination of applications by the tax payers who plan to seek relief in case of excessive hardship in paying off property tax under Unit Area Assessment (UAA) system.A senior official of the KMC said HRC has been formed for providing relief to tax payers who face excessive hardship in paying property tax within the ambit of Section 173 B of KMC Act 1980. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flights”As per provisions of the act, the committee after receiving the application in writing by the tax payer concerned, may review the amount payable for the property or may realize the sum in installments.The Committee is also empowered to make recommendations for any relief to the KMC for consideration,” the official said.The formation of HRC has already been passed at the Member Mayor-in-Council’s (MMiC) meeting of the civic body that was held in June.

The matter will be passed at the monthly meeting of the KMC on May 20.It may be mentioned that the KMC had extended the deadline for payment of property tax under UAA system for a period of six months with effect from April 1.The last date for paying property tax under UAA was earlier announced till March 31. Inspectors from the civic body’s assessment department has been travelling from door to door of the residents and handing out forms of UAA and also guiding them on how to pay tax under UAA. “An unnecessary scare about the new property tax calculation method has kept assessees from embracing the new UAA method. We need to put an end to this irrational fear and for this we are taking all measures,” the official maintained.KMC had introduced UAA in April 2017 but the response was lukewarm with only 50,000 of the 2.75 lakh assessees opting for it and submitting the applications till the middle of March.Sources in the assessment department said civic authorities has set a fresh target of Rs 998 crore in property tax for the next fiscal that began from April 1.
The Centre’s act of declassifying secret files on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose may not help in unravelling the mystery surrounding his disappearance, noted journalist and author Kingshuk Nag has said.“Prime Minister Narendra Modi has just promised, he is yet to act on that. Even if all the central government files are declassified, I am not sure, if they will have all the answers that people are seeking to know about Netaji,” Nag said during the launch of his book ‘Netaji: Living Dangerously’ on Tuesday. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life“I doubt if the files will have all the information, because some of the important files may be missing, may be doctored long before Modi became the prime minister,” said the Prem Bhatia Memorial Award winner. Following a meeting with a host of Netaji descendants and historians, Modi in October announced the Centre will declassify files related to Bose from January 23 – his birth anniversary. The Prime Minister also assured he would request foreign governments, including Russia, to declassify files related to Netaji available with them. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedNag, who in his book has dealt about the various theories surrounding Netaji’s disappearance following an alleged air crash in Formosa (now Taiwan) on August 18, 1945, claims the answer to Bose’s disappearance lie hidden in secret files with the Russian, British and the Japanese governments. “The Indian government files may mostly carry certain passing references about Netaji. The real mystery behind his disappearance may be revealed only if the files with the Russian, British and Japanese governments are declassified,” Nag said. Eminent historian Hari Vasudevan said the Modi government ought to have sought the services of experts for the process of declassification of over 120 files said to be with the various central departments, including the PMO. “We don’t know what files will be classified so it is difficult to say whether they will be able to answer the questions that we all have been seeking. But, I don’t think it is adequate that files are just randomly declassified without allowing experts, or historians to ask questions,” Vasudevan said.
With his unique concept and power to toy with human psyche he attempts to unveil buried feelings of a person’s mind. Amit said, “Memories are transcendental by nature. They act as time machine that cradles a human mind between now and then, hither and thither with memories flashing in pieces”. He explains, these memories could be both sweet and sour but it is something that connects to ones individuality and something one has absorbed from their surrounding. The exhibition will portray the state of calmness and peace through mix medium of art and will be showcased at DSIIDC, Narela, Industrial Area from June 18 and will conclude on June 30. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Through this show the artist has tried to arrange the scattered puzzle pieces of memories to understand the subconscious state of mind which results in understanding one’s own self. Every touch of the brush hovers between reality and fantasy world, balancing every virtual image that restrains the power to grasp an impression and make it everlasting on canvas. Serenity is a series conceived, nurtured and delivered from the womb of memory, inspired by anything and everything against any limits. Artist Amit Dutt believes in immeasurable flow of thought process and hence his paintings offer a panoramic view to the observer. The figurative paintings in this solo show will showcase the impetuous state of human mind and will portray the different shades of human consciousness. Each of his painting consists of vibrant and sober colors blend fairly in a unique way which builds a serene characteristic in the art. They are loud enough to pour the heart and soul of a spectator with thoughts but are peaceful to look at due to its subtle nature. The contrasting shades of color every painting has, narrates a different story. But the message perceived by each the viewer vary in many ways.

Indoor air pollution is very much real and it can be five times or more worse than outdoor air pollution. From everyday consumer products and household habits such as paints, pet allergens to cooking gas, can be an additional source of air pollution. So, what now and how do we shield ourselves? Experts say, “According to the World Health Organization (WHO), global air pollution database released in Geneva, India has 14 out of the 15 most polluted cities in the world in terms of PM 2.5 concentrations. It said 7 million people die every year because of outdoor and household air pollution…Reports like these suggest that the impact of pollution on human health is fatal. Air pollution has impact on most of the organs and systems of human body. The lung is one of the major sites of interaction with environmental particulates that causes and aggravates many respiratory diseases like COPD, asthma, and lung cancer”.

Carpets can capture a lot of pollutants such small dust particles, food which fall on the floor, pet hair, dust mites, pesticides, cockroach allergens and other dirt. These pollutants may become airborne while vacuuming or during renovations. Children are more exposed to these pollutants are they tend to play on the carpet. 4Indoor smoking is deadly: Avoid smoking Indoor. It affects not only the smoker but also people around them. While we are all aware about the harmful effects of smoking, it is deadlier indoor. Since there is no space for the smoke to go out so you tend to inhale the same air repeatedly, harming your nostrils and lungs. 4Ensure good ventilation: Proper ventilation in your house will prevents air pollutants from affecting you and your family’s health. Not only that, having a proper flow of air inside your home can help you get rid of all the unwanted smells arising from cooking or from carpets. Also, allergens such as dusts, pollen, and other irritants which tends to get trapped inside your house can be removed to a large extent if there is a proper ventilation.4Give away your plastic habits: Plastics are a major cause of air pollution. The by-products of plastics called microplastics are small pieces of plastic between the size of 0.1 micron to 5mm in diameter. These microplastics are immensely harmful to our health. Shockingly microplastics have found its way to our homes also. Their contributors can be simple things like erosion of synthetic carpets, synthetic clothing or cosmetics. 4Get an air purifier: Air purifiers are the best way to clean the indoor air. In addition to investing in your health it can prevent microplastics, allergies and impure air from harming you and your dear ones.
In a recent interview, Phil Jackson made comments referring to LeBron’s business team as a “posse.” Colin doesn’t think the comments were racially motivated, but he does believe they were intentionally disparaging and demeaning, and Jackson is too smart to not know how they would land.Sports, like politics, is all about power, and the establishment is always in fear of losing it. LeBron James and his business associates have upset the traditional NBA power structure and made him the most powerful person in the NBA. NBA archetypes like Phil Jackson and Pat Riley are clearly struggling with losing their power within the league to players, like LeBron. Colin says deal with it, times have changed. (Maverick Carter joins the show for an exclusive interview to give his reaction to the comments)“LeBron is the new establishment. Deal with it.”Colin has had it with the College Football Playoffs, and the idea that only conference champions can make the playoffs. This year, Ohio State is headed for an 11-1 season, with their only loss coming on the road at Penn State, in which they led most of the game. But, they could find themselves on the outside, looking in at the Final Four because Penn State holds the tiebreaker.Colin says enough is enough, he’s in favor of Ohio State making the Final Four if they win out because they’re the second best team in the country. In practically every other sport, teams don’t have to win their conference to make the playoffs. College football shouldn’t be any different.“In the NFL. In the NBA. In the NHL. In Major League Baseball. You can be a wild card team and win the World Series, a Super Bowl, a Stanley Cup. Why be paralyzed by all these qualifiers? Why even have a committee? Just check the boxes.” Colin is on the record saying that the Big Ten, as a conference, has better coaches than the SEC, and are gaining in the arms race for the best college football conference. But, the SEC is still lapping the field in terms of NFL talent, and it’s not even close. In last night’s Monday Night Football game between the Bengals and the Giants, SEC alums on both teams made all the big plays. Eli Manning, Odell Beckham Jr., Landon Collins, Jeremy Hill and A.J. Green, to name a few. The SEC may not have the best coaches, but they’re still lapping the field in terms of NFL talent. It’s not even close.“Don’t kid yourself. This sport is overwhelmingly run by one conference. It’s in the South, the SEC.” Guests:Ty Law – 3-time Super Bowl champ is in-studio to talk Patriots, what it was like playing for both Belichick and Pete Carroll, if the Steelers problems are the fault of the coaches or the players, what he saw in a young Tom Brady that showed he would be successful, and the cutthroat business of the NFL for a veteran player at the end of his career.Jason McIntyre – Founder of the Big Lead and co-host of Speak for Yourself is in-studio to discuss Phil Jackson’s “posse” comments, how he thinks the College Football Playoff will play out, why he’s in favor of an 8-team playoff, and his take on Westbrook’s struggles without Durant in OKC.Maverick Carter – Founder of LMR Marketing and business associate of LeBron James joins the show to give his reaction to Phil Jackson’s comments referring to LeBron’s business team as a “posse”, how LeBron changed his feelings about forgiving Dan Gilbert for his comments and returning to Cleveland, and when LeBron might stop by to sit on the couch for an interview in The Herd.Chris Broussard – FS1 NBA Insider is in-studio to discuss Colin’s interview with Maverick Carter and Phil Jackson’s comments, why they were disparaging, how LeBron has changed the power structure of the NBA, and whether there is any truth to the rumors that Klay Thompson is on the trading block in Golden State.Charles Haley – NFL Hall of Famer, 5-time Super Bowl Champ, and author of Fear No Evil: Tackling Quarterbacks and Demons on My Way to the Hall of Fame, joins the show to talk about his battles with PTSD, bipolar disorder and depression after his playing career, how he overcame it, if he thinks it affected his playing career, if he felt his play was overlooked by the media, and which coaches he had the biggest impact on his life.
The night before the Patriots drilled the Steelers in the AFC Championship game, someone pulled the fire alarm at the Pittsburgh hotel. It wasn’t Bill Belichick, he apparently had an ironclad alibi.According to the Massachusetts State Police, 25-year old Boston area native Dennis Harrison is the guilty party. He’s a Pats fan.Per the Boston Globe, Harrison was at a house party at a friend’s place in Revere, when he was dared to pull the fire alarm at the Hilton Boston Logan Airport Hotel, where the Steelers were staying. Harrison, who was a couple of sodas deep, accepted the dare.He and a friend drove to the hotel, but that’s where the master plan went awry. Harrison entered the hotel and pulled the alarm, but when he exited the building to escape the scene, his getaway driver had ditched him. Good friends don’t always make good accomplices. Advertisement Harrison was discovered wandering around the perimeter of the building and was eventually ID’ed by police as the suspect.When asked why he did it, Harrison fired off a classic response, stating,“I’m drunk. I’m stupid. I’m a Pats fan.” You have to give the guy points for honesty.On Monday, Harrison appeared in East Boston Municipal Court, and plead not guilty to disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, and setting off a false fire alarm. He was released on his own recognizance.Maybe next time he plans a crime, he should use his underachieving, genius friend, who secretly solves complex math equations while working the night-shift as a janitor at MIT. He’s wicked smahhht.

October 20, 2017 Did you know that only 32 percent of customers are likely to place a second order in their first year as a customer? That means you’re losing most of your customers after their first purchase. Unless you create a strategy to retain them, you’re wasting valuable marketing resources.Here are just a few reasons you should have a retention strategy for your ecommerce business:It’s easy to sell: Selling to your existing customers is easier. In fact, an existing customer is three to 12 times more likely to buy than a new prospect.You can double your revenue: Adobe has reported online retailers that retain just 10 percent of existing customers end up making twice the revenue.Related: 3 Ways to Consistently Delight (and Retain) Your CustomersCompelling stuff, right? Still, most ecommerce companies still rely solely on customer acquisition. They undervalue the possibility of retaining and nurturing their existing customer base. Developing and implementing a retention strategy is vital to creating a sustainable business. Here’s how to make it happen. Demonstrate value.Most of your first-time customers are filling an immediate need. They’re not necessarily interested in a long term relationship with your brand. That means you must figure out how to encourage your customers to return more often, spend more time on your site and ultimately purchase from your store. Publishing useful content on a regular basis is one way to demonstrate value. NewEgg uses videos to engage consumers and ultimately convert them to customers. These posts range from product reviews to in-depth tutorials. On a related note, ensure your product descriptions not only entice visitors to buy but make them remember your brand after the sale.Related: How to Develop a Winning Value Proposition Under-promise and over-deliver.Nothing destroys your credibility faster than bailing on a promise you made to your customers. If you offer same-day delivery but can’t realistically uphold that standard on a consistent basis, you’re creating dissatisfied customers. Instead, try this: Estimate how long it will take to deliver the shipment and then double that time. Zappos promises delivery within five business days, but the majority of orders are shipped overnight. This exceeds customers’ expectations, making a positive impact and fostering trust in the brand.Create a win-back email campaign.Email marketing produces a conversion rate nearly twice that of organic search, and it also outperforms nearly all other marketing channels. But an average of 60 percent of email lists are full of “dead” subscribers? A roster filled with inactives hurts your conversion factor and leads to reduced deliverability as messages are routed to spam.Creating a win-back email campaign is the best way to make re-engage leads with your email, boost deliverability and increase conversions. According to an analysis of win-back email campaigns of 33 retailers, the average open rate of win-back emails is 12 percent. That’s a respectable number considering all the recipients were identified as inactive leads before.Define inactivity: The majority of marketers define an inactive lead as anyone who hasn’t opened or responded any email sent in the past six to 12 months.Tweak the subject line: Emotionally charged subject lines such as “We miss you!” will outperform neutral subject lines.Send a series of re-engagement emails: A win-back is not a one-time event. Create an automated series of emails, and allow recipients to change their email preferences. Keep in mind that three-quarters of inactive subscribers could re-engage within 90 days, so don’t cull lists too early.Related: 3 Simple Tricks to Explode Your Sales Email Open RatesStart a subscription-model business.The subscription-model economy is rapidly becoming the norm across industries and particularly in ecommerce.

With Mojave, Macs will support Dark Mode, a long-awaited feature that adjusts the entire OS to a darker color scheme.At the event, Cook also mentioned updates to Desktop and Finder, along with enhancements to privacy and security. We know from the Mojave preview that a Stacks feature coming to the desktop will automatically group files and folders by their type. Also, Finder will receive a Gallery View, which shows larger previews and allows you to rotate and trim audio and video files from within a folder.Regarding security, Mojave will supposedly ensure that your web browsing isn’t tracked on sites that have share, like or comment buttons. It will also combat fingerprinting, or when companies send targeted ads based on your device’s configuration.The Mac App Store will be redesigned with changes Apple previewed back in June. The new look will imitate the recently overhauled iOS App Store, putting emphasis on apps, games and developers with a new Discover tab.Another interesting feature new to Mojave is the Continuity Camera, an overhauled way to insert photos or documents from an iPhone to Mac apps.We won’t know the full extent of the changes coming to macOS until Mojave officially launches. Fortunately, that day is fast approaching.
Update Aug 8: Intel will now let laptop makers use a “visual identifier” that says “Engineered for mobile performance” on laptops that meet the requirements for Project Athena (see specs section). Intel thinks the people who are buying laptops — and the things they’re buying laptops to do — are changing. And now it’s outlining the specs the chip maker thinks will be required to meet those shifting needs.It’s all part of Project Athena, an initiative Intel first unveiled during CES in January as a way to redesign notebooks to better meet users’ needs. Intel believes that a new class of mobile is emerging that want to turn to the same device for work and play, and that they’re demanding more portable laptops that don’t skimp on battery life or performance.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

Just this month, the chip maker announced that it was opening partner labs where makers of laptops and components could collaborate on longer-lasting machines. But this week’s Computex trade show is giving Intel a platform to really dive into explaining Project Athena and what kinds of notebooks it will produce for mobile users.Who Project Athena is forAt the heart of Intel’s Project Athena efforts is the idea that users are now turning to laptops to handle both work and side projects or personal passions — with the lines between those efforts becoming increasingly blurred. The way Intel sees it, an office worker who’s completed a report on her work laptop doesn’t want to switch to a new machine to edit the music project she’s working on during her off-hours: she wants one machine that does everything.”It’s really our north star, understanding this new customer,” said Josh Newman, vice president and general manager of the Mobile Innovation Segments for Intel’s Client Computing Group.Laptops built under Project Athena guidelines are trying to address three user demands. They need to be designed to help users focus by waking up instantly and delivering responsive performance no matter the task. They need to adapt to users’ needs, whether that’s with ultra-portable form factors or AI-powered features. And they need to always be ready, offer reliable network connections and enough battery life so that users don’t have fret about their laptop running out of power.Intel stresses that Project Athena is a multiyear process, with the ultimate goal being to deliver notebooks that filter out distractions and immerse users in what they’re doing. These laptops will keep users connected automatically and instantly, adapting to their needs as they’re using the machine and offering more battery than a user can consume in a day. Laptops should also help users collaborate, keep data safe and double as a personal cinema.”This is based on what customers need,” Newman said. “And we believe these are the experiences that will delight them.”For 2019, though, Intel is focusing its efforts on creating a responsive laptop that’s ready to go whenever you wake it up. It’s also pushing for devices that deliver long battery life. And these aren’t either/or goals, Newman noted: Intel wants to meet all three objectives at the same time.Project Athena specsTo that end, Intel’s now publicly spelling out target specs for Project Athena hardware. Working with other parts suppliers and laptop makers, Intel wants Project Athena devices to meet the following standards. Performance: Laptops will have a Core i5 or Core i7 processor augmented by more than 8GB of DRAM. The notebooks will provide at least 256GB of SSD storage, and Intel Optane memory, which prioritizes frequently used apps, will be available as an option. Battery: Intel’s not kidding about worry-free battery life. It’s targeting 16-plus hours of local video playback and 9-plus hours of wireless web browsing. Laptops should be able to deliver 4 hours of battery life after 30 minutes of charging. Ready to Go: Project Athena laptops should wake from sleep in less than a second with support for Connected Standby or Lucid Sleep features. The laptops will also offer biometric login through either fingerprint scanning or race recognition. Connectivity: Expect Thunderbolt 3 as well as Wi-Fi 6 Gig+ as standard connectivity features. Gigabit LTE will be an option as well. Adaptive Intelligence: Project Athena devices will support OpenVino, Intel’s AI tools, as well as WinML. The laptops will support far-field voice services, too for voice-powered commands. Form Factors: Intel is focusing on ultraslim 2-in-1 and clamshell devices. It’s pushing OEMs to deliver displays between 12 and 15 inches at 1080p resolution or better. Those will be touch displays with narrow bezels on three sides.All told, Intel has 23 requirements for Project Athena hardware aimed at delivering the user experience the chip maker envisions. Intel will verify that notebooks are up to Project Athena standards with 15 responsiveness metrics and three battery life metrics. Intel will also test the battery’s charge capabilities after 30 minutes and perform its Smart Sound technology test. When a laptop passes Intel’s tests, it can receive an “Engineered for mobile performance” label that tells customers when a device meets this minimum set of requirements. What to expectLook for a dozen Project Athena models to debut this year, though Intel is leaving it up to the laptop makers themselves to announce when. The company is hoping to scale up the number of available devices in future years. However, the company’s Computex keynote featured four upcoming laptops that meet Project Athena requirements: the Acer Swift 5, the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, the HP Envy 13-inch Wood Series and the Lenovo Yoga S940.For now, Newman said, the goal is for Intel and its hardware partners to raise the bar in responsiveness, battery life and instantaneous action with this year’s devices. “Our mission this year is to convey how it’s better inside,” he said.Best Laptop BrandsBest Ultrabooks by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeVikings: Free Online GameIf You Have a Computer, This Strategy Game Is a Must-HaveVikings: Free Online GameUndoKelley Blue Book5 Mid-engine Corvettes That Weren’tKelley Blue BookUndoGrepolis – Free Online GameGamers Around the World Have Been Waiting for this GameGrepolis – Free Online GameUndoVerizon WirelessThis new phone will blow your mind.Verizon WirelessUndoTODAYPolice Identify Girl Licking Ice Cream Tub In Viral VideoTODAYUndoMy Food and FamilyHealthy, Homemade Drunken Thai Noodles In Just 20 MinutesMy Food and FamilyUndoAdvertisement
HamMultiPlayer: play multiple videos at the same time by Martin Brinkmann on June 30, 2017 in Software – Last Update: July 11, 2017 – 6 commentsHamMultiPlayer is a free software program for Microsoft Windows computer systems that lets you to play multiple videos at the same time.The application uses mplayer and the MediaInfo library for that which means that it can play most video files out of the box. It is compatible with all 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows from Windows XP to Windows 10, and is a portable program that you can run from any location on a Windows machine.The program’s has been designed for several tasks, including previewing videos, managing them, and watching multiple videos at once.HamMultiPlayerHamMultiPlayer’s interface displays a lot of panes and even more buttons by default. This can be confusing at first, but it all makes sense once you get past this initial wondering where to start phase.What you may want to do first is load some videos. You can use the browser on the right to do just that. It lists all drives and the folders, and you may have any folder scanned for supported video files to have them loaded all at once by the application.As far as loading videos is concerned, you do get options to filter the listing in various ways. You may filter by media file extension for instance, or by anything that you add in a free text field.The default layout displays eight videos that are loaded near the top, and one of them in the larger play area.What is particularly interesting about the layout is that you can play any of the videos on its own, or play them all at once instead.The media controls under each video thumbnail are linked to that video only, but the controls in the toolbar below the previews control them all. Once you select one of the videos for playback in the main pane, you get another set of controls just for that one.One of the strengths of the multimedia player is the ability to change the interface. When you open the preferences, you may add one or two additional rows of video thumbnails to the interface, or reduce the number of thumbnails displayed instead.Things don’t stop there though; you can change the default view mode to three other modes. There us dual view mode for instance which displays two videos in the larger pane in the lower half, or a full width mode that hides the folder browser.The program supports multi-monitor systems as well, and may display thumbnails only or a preview only on one of the connected systems.Another cool feature of HamMultiPlayer is that you can have it create thumbnail previews of videos. This captures screenshot of the video and displays them in the play area. This allows you to preview the video quickly, and even jump to any of the parts of the video with a click.Instead of loading multiple videos, you may also load a single video to divide it into multiple parts that are shown then as thumbnails in the application.There is a lot more that the software program supports. You can load an audio equalizer, change video characteristics such as brightness or contrast, increase or decrease playback speed, or make use of external decoders and programs.Use CasesSo what can you use HamMultiPlayer for? I think it is an excellent program that you may use for several things:As a creator, watch and compare videos or footage.As an analyst, to watch multiple video feeds at the same time, for instance videos that show different angles of a sports game or training.For security, as you can monitor multiple video feeds at the same time (not in real-time though).As a user, who wants to go through a collection of videos to find duplicates, remove videos that are no longer required.As a user who likes to watch multiple videos at once, for instance several Sports matches,VerdictHamMultiPlayer is a powerful multimedia player for Windows that you may use to play multiple video files at once on the system. Since it uses mplayer for that, it supports pretty much any video file you throw at the player. All in all, an excellent but specialized program.Now You: What’s your take on HamMultiPlayer?Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 3 votes Software Name HamMultiPlayerOperating System WindowsSoftware Category MultimediaLanding Page http://hammultiplayer.org/ Advertisement

Close What’s the difference between the Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Note 10 Plus, and Galaxy Note 9? ( Samsung ) Samsung finally unveiled the new Galaxy Note lineup at its Unpacked event on Aug. 7, taking the wraps off the successor to the Galaxy Note 9.While the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus are top-of-the-line smartphones in their own rights, the former could be argued as a “downgrade” rather than an upgrade over their predecessor.On that note (pun intended), here’s a breakdown of how each handset differs from one another.

Both run on Android 9 Pie out of the box and sport an under-display fingerprint reader, USB-C port, and a 10-megapixel selfie camera. As for features, they boast Wireless PowerShare, an S Pen with Bluetooth connectivity and gesture controls called Air Actions, and an IP68 water-resistance rating. That’s as far as the similarities between them go.The standard model comes with 256 GB of built-in storage and 8 GB of RAM, while the bigger sibling is also available in those configurations but can go all the way up to 512 GB of storage, which is expandable by up to 1 TB with a microSD card, and 12 GB of RAM.The Galaxy Note 10 has a 6.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with a 2,280 x 1,080 resolution (401 ppi), a 3,500 mAh battery, and a triple camera setup that consists of a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens, and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Note 10 Plus has a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen with a 3,040 x 1,440 resolution (498 ppi), a 4,300 mAh battery, and the same triple camera configuration plus a ToF (Time of Flight) 3D VGA camera.Galaxy Note 10 vs. Galaxy Note 9Except for the lack of a headphone jack, the Galaxy Note 10 Plus beats the Galaxy Note 9 across the board — surprise, surprise. However, the older model does have some advantages over the standard Galaxy Note 10.Case in point, it has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 2,960 x 1,440 resolution (516 ppi), meaning it has a sharper display, which also bests the Galaxy Note 10 Plus’ by a bit. In addition, it’s available with 512 GB of internal storage that can be expanded by up to 512 GB, and it even has a bigger 4,000 mAh battery.It starts to look outdated (read: barely) by comparison when it comes to its Snapdragon 845 or Exynos 9810 chip, rear fingerprint reader, dual-camera setup — 12-megapixel wide lens paired with 12-megapixel telephoto lens — and eight-megapixel front snapper. But that’s pretty much it. It still has an IP68 rating, a USB-C port, and an S Pen with Bluetooth connectivity, though the stylus isn’t as feature-packed as the Galaxy Note 10’s.The Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus are priced at $949.99 and $1,099.99, respectively. For the record, the Galaxy Note 9 launched with a $999.99 price tag.
