Google backs feature phone platform player

first_img Google invested $22 million in KaiOS Technologies, which the company said will enable it to “fast track development and global deployment” of its operating system designed for “smart feature phones”.While stating its platform is “not Firefox OS”, KaiOS is based on the original Mozilla project with staff from that team working on its engineering and user experience. It said the OS has “developed into something much more robust and expanded” than the Firefox platform.In addition to the investment, Google and KaiOS Technologies will work to make Google Assistant, Maps, YouTube and Search available for KaiOS users.“Having an intelligent voice assistant on an affordable mobile phone is truly revolutionary as it helps overcome some of the limitations a keypad brings,” Sebastien Codeville, CEO of KaiOS Technologies, said.KaiOS is the platform used by Indian operator Reliance Jio in its JioPhones. The company said it also works with TCL Communications, Doro, HMD Global and Micromax, along with operators Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile US.The platform is also used in the Nokia 8110 feature phone announced by HMD Global at Mobile World Congress.

Eating something sweet can lead to a romantic date

first_imgThe Washington Post:Ate something bitter? It can make you judgmental. Feeling love is all around? It can make even water taste sweeter. Not only do our emotions influence our perceptions of taste, but what we taste can also change how we feel, scientists have found.“The tongue could be a window to the psyche,” says Nancy Dess, a professor of psychology at Occidental College in Los Angeles, pointing to the growing number of studies that connect taste perception with emotions and even personality types.…In that study, close to 1,000 Americans were given standard personality and taste-preference questionnaires. People who enjoyed foods with bitter notes — such as grapefruit, tonic water, coffee and radishes — were more likely to admit that they enjoyed tormenting people or that they tend to manipulate others to get their way. “And these effects are not tiny, either,” says Austrian psychologist Christina Sagioglou, the study’s lead author.…“The findings suggest that judgments involving morality, e.g. jury deliberations, opinions on sociopolitical issues, could potentially reflect and be swayed by what individuals eat and drink,” said one of the study’s authors, Natalie Kacinik, a professor of psychology at the City University of New York, in an email.Read the whole story: The Washington Post More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Man Utd equal Prem record for most penalties in a season with dodgy Bruno spot kick which VAR chiefs admit was a mistake

first_img REAL vs FAKE GOLD Funny animals make you happy and laugh funny animal compilation MANCHESTER UNITED equalled a Premier League record following Bruno Fernandes’ controversial penalty against Aston Villa.The Portuguese midfielder swept home a first-half spot-kick after he was deemed to have been brought down by Ezri Konsa.The penalty was United’s 13th of the season – equalling the Premier League record for spot-kicks awarded in a single campaign.The Red Devils have now drawn level with the Crystal Palace team of 2004/05 and Leicester City’s title-winning side from 2015/16.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men still have four matches remaining this season to break the record.Yet controversy reigned around their latest spot-kick after replays appeared to show Fernandes was the one who committed the foul.The 25-year-old then punished the relegation-threatened hosts by scoring from 12 yards at Villa Park, before United ran out 3-0 winners. The Premier League later confirmed that referee Jon Moss was wrong to award the penalty and that VAR Graham Scott should have overruled the decision.The decision compounded Villa’s relegation fears and boss Dean Smith blasted the officials after the match.He said: “It all turned around on the penalty decision.“I can understand Jon Moss getting it wrong but that goes to VAR, I don’t know what they are looking at. It’s a disgraceful decision. I can’t really tell you what I think about it as I’ll get fined. It’s a poor decision. They’ve got a screen they can go to and look at but they don’t seem to be bothered now.“Anybody who has been in football knows Fernandes is trying to do a drag back. His first foot is on the ball and his second is on Konsa’s shin.“I thought he was going to give a foul the other way.”Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Man United ‘could have scored 3,4,5 more’ vs Aston Villa but heaps praise on goalscorer Mason Greenwood Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017 What’s This “Trick” Called?

Selkirk College Saints Set for BCIHL Stretch Drive

first_imgEarlier this month the team traveled to the Lower Mainland where they took part in the BCIHL University Showcase. The Saints beat both Trinity Western and the University of Victoria, but fell 4-3 to SFU in an entertaining game that was decided in a shootout.“The showcase gave us a good opportunity to get a focused look at where we are at this point in the season,” says Heaven.“All three games featured excellent hockey and our guys showed that we can win on any given night. There were also a lot of scouts in the stands taking a look at how our players might fit into another program once they graduate from Selkirk College. Our guys certainly gave them something to think about.”The trio of Dallas Calvin, Jamie Vlanich and Ryan Edwards continue to lead the way offensively for the Saints. All three West Kootenay-raised forwards are in the top-five of league scoring, but Heaven says the team’s depth is what stands out.“It’s fun to watch these young men perform on the ice,” says Heaven.“But championship teams are not built with one line or three individual players. It’s a luxury as a coach to be able to roll four lines and know that every single player has the ability to make an important contribution each time they are out there. Most importantly, our play in our own zone has been developing well, we are fortunate to have such a strong defensive core and great goaltending.”Trinity Western currently sits third in the league, but are last season’s defending regular season champions. Heaven expects an entertaining game on Friday night.“When we played them earlier this month, it was a great battle,” says Heaven.“They have one of the top goaltenders in the league [Silas Matthy] who is able to withstand our constant attack on offence. It took a powerplay goal by Ashton McLeod midway through the third period to get the win. I’m expecting another great game and this will be an important test as we make our way to the playoffs.”The BCIHL post-season begins on the March 11-13 weekend. Friday night’s game at the Castlegar & District Recreation Centre begins at 7 p.m. The Selkirk College Saints pursuit of a fourth straight British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) title begins in earnest Friday against the Trinity Western Spartans.With the second semester of play underway, the three-time defending league champions begin a string of five straight home games at the Castlegar & District Recreation Centre where they hope to get a firm grasp on the top seed heading into the post-season.“This team certainly has what it takes to become champions once again,” says Saints head coach Brent Heaven.“There’s still plenty of work to be done and we are going to get better, but we have put ourselves in a great position to compete with any team in this league.”The Saints currently sit one point back of Simon Fraser University (SFU) for first place in the BCIHL standings.The team is coming off a big 7-3 Saturday night win against Eastern Washington University in Cheney, Washington where the powerplay got hot with five goals on seven opportunities.last_img read more
