MORE TREES, LESS TREES, BUS SHELTERS, ZEBRA CROSSINGS, NAME PLATES AND MORE ATTRACTIVE ARCHES DEMANDED FOR LETTERKENNY!

first_imgLETTERKENNY town Council may have spent almost €1 million upgrading its Main Street but it’s still far from perfect according to local councillors.A number of councillors last night raised motions and questions about the Cathedral Town’s main thoroughfare at the town council meeting.In fact there are no less than SIX changes, upgrades and uprooting needed. First off Cllr Dessie Larkin is not a happy camper about the number of trees lining the street.Instead of stopping at Market Square, Cllr Larkin wants the street to be evergreen right down to Lower Main Street.And trees are also on Cllr Victor Fisher’s mind.He has a major problem with the tree outside the town’s post office and claims it is blocking the view of drivers who can’t see people crossing the road. And speaking of road crossings, Cllr Jim Lynch is far from happy at the state of the ornate arches under which Letterkenny folk are passing to cross the road.Cllr Lynch wants something or even anything done with the arches more attractive or even more practical!If road crossings are your thing, then Cllr Gerry McMonagle wants the town council to place zebra crossings at….err……well every crossing.The newly erected seats on the Main Street may be a welcome resting place but they haven’t been quite ‘signed off’ on just yet.Cllr Victor Fisher is demanding that the names of some of the town’s best known residents including the late Dick Duffy, Dr.John Farrelly, Johnny Gallagher and Nora McConnell be inscribed on the seats as had been agreed. And finally, if it’s a bus you’re waiting for on the Main Street, then Cllr Fisher is again your only man.He is demanding that a bus shelter be placed outside the post office.Which kind of makes you wonder ……..why all this wasn’t done before the cheque was signed off on for the developers of the Main Street’s refurbishment?Another €100,000 of taxpayer’s money should do it!

Discover by Cooliris: Wikipedia Never Looked This Good

first_imgRelated Posts Articles are generally broken down by sections and currently come in three different layouts that the app chooses randomly. In later iterations, Cooliris hopes to offer more templates. The team behind the Discover app also told us that it hopes to get to the point where the app can choose themes that match the topic of a given article.In order to focus on the reading experience, Cooliris decided to hide links. Instead of seeing underlined text, users can simply click on any word in the text. If the word isn’t linked to another Wikipedia page, the app will bring up a dictionary definition and if the text was linked, users can choose to open up the respective Wikipedia article. There are, of course, a few things that Cooliris could still do to improve the app. Currently, for example, you need to have an Internet connection as the app doesn’t cache any content (pages are rendered on the fly). According to Cooliris, this is due to licensing issues. Also, while browsing articles, you can’t quickly skip between sections. Instead of highlighting related articles, it would be more user-friendly to allow readers to see the different sections of an article. The app is also currently unable to render tables in Wikipedia articles, which is not a major problem in most cases, but becomes an issue when reading articles about highly technical subjects. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Tags:#mobile#news#web frederic lardinoiscenter_img Wikipedia is one of the most popular sites on the Internet, but the sparse design of the service isn’t likely to win awards. On the iPad, on the other hand, we are now seeing a trend towards beautiful apps like Flipboard, which combines design and functionality. With Discover, Cooliris is now launching a free Wikipedia app with a magazine-like interface that allows users to browse and search Wikipedia on the iPad in a whole new way.Note: The app is currently still waiting for Apple’s approval.

Report: Tablets an Indispensable Tool for Utilities – But Concerns Remain

first_imgAccording to Technology Business Research (TBR), a leading technology market research firm specializing in the business and financial analyses of hardware and software products, tablets are an indispensible tool in the enterprise today. In a recent survey conducted by the firm of 230 IT decision makers in the USOpens in a new window, the importance of tablets to businesses continues to increase. As many utility and energy companies can confirm, the portability and efficiency of the latest tablet PCs have made them an indispensable business tool. These devices have helped utility and energy industry customers streamline their processes, keep operations running smoothly and improve their fiscal bottom lines.While the study revealed that users are certainly more confident with a tablet’s ability as a business tool today, TBR’s focus group also cited three main areas of concern as they deploy more tablet devices: security and device management; reliable performance; and battery life.Security and Device ManagementTBR’s study results indicate that IT decision makers are underwhelmed with the toolsets currently available for secure mobile device management. Organizations stated that many current solutions relied too heavily on loosely integrated, bolt-on third-party software and security tools, which increased MDM solution complexity and operating expenses. These tools also frequently failed to keep up with the fast-changing market. As a result, organizations’ confidence in their abilities to easily manage and maintain consumer-grade tablets dimmed, leaving IT decision makers searching for a more unified, holistic MDM solution.Reliable PerformanceTablet durability was cited as a top concern, with survey respondents who deployed consumer-grade devices expressing the lowest satisfaction levels for durability and return on investment (ROI) of their tablets. Subpar tablet reliability can be costly for businesses, in terms of repairs, possible replacement of a tablet, as well as the cost of employee downtime caused by device failure or lost data. Especially in the utilities market, rugged tablets, with increased durability and reliability, lead the pack in helping to minimize these risks.Battery LifeTBR’s study revealed that battery life is one of the top features IT decision makers said would influence future tablet purchases. The longer a battery is able to power a tablet, the longer it enables employee productivity. The easier it is for IT staff — or employees — to swap in a fully charged battery or replace an aging or defective unit, the longer that device remains in service. While mobile devices have been a mainstay in utilities for years, tablet usage has been on the rise, lead by a trend known as the ‘consumerization of IT’ and driven by the sleek, thin design appeal of consumer-grade tablets. However, the study results show a clear need for tablets that provide features such as durable hardware, security, device management tools, and replaceable batteries to minimize capital and operating expenses and reduce total cost of ownership (TCO). Rugged tablets create a unique opportunity as they enhance the productivity of mobile workers while reducing the risk of downtime in the field. Panasonic’s Toughpad tablets present a compelling value proposition for organizations seeking to transform increasing employee mobility into increased productivity.To read the complete TBR report on tablets in the enterprise, please visit www.Panasonic.comOpens in a new window.For more insights, see the Panasonic for Business BlogOpens in a new window.last_img read more

Gene Roller-Coaster Climbs Higher

first_imgBOSTON–When the draft human genome sequence was completed last year, a computer analysis suggested the number of genes was shockingly small. Now, an experimental approach suggests the number may actually be much closer to the early prediction of 70,000 genes, according to a presentation 16 February at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, publisher of ScienceNOW.The all-day session started innocently enough. Eric Lander of the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts, a leader of the Human Genome Project, told a standing-room-only audience that his best guess was still that there are about 32,000 human genes. That’s based on annotation, the process of predicting which stretches of DNA contain genes by relying on specialized software to identify gene-like sequences in DNA.Later in the day, Victor Velculescu mounted a small rebellion by raising the gene count. He and his colleagues, at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, have gone back to the lab to look for genes that annotation missed. Their technique, called serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE), works by tracking RNA molecules back to their DNA sources. After isolating RNA from various human tissues, the researchers copy it into DNA, from which they cut out a kind of genetic bar code of 10 to 20 base pairs. The vast majority of these tags are unique to a single gene. The tags can then be compared to the human genome to find out if they match up with genes discovered by annotation. Velculescu said that only half of the tags match annonated genes–evidence, they say, that annotation underestimated the human inventory genes by about half.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)The reason for the disparity may be that the standard computer annotation method was largely developed for the genomes of simple (prokaryotic) organisms, not for the more complex sequences found in the genomes of humans and other eukaryotes. “We’re still not very good at predicting genes in eukaryotes,” said Claire Fraser of The Institute for Genomic Research in Rockville, Maryland. It’s entirely possible that there could be more than 32,000 genes, and SAGE is an important approach to finding them, she says. “You absolutely have to go back into the lab and get away from the computer terminal.”Related sitesA brief SAGE overviewSAGE for beginnerslast_img read more

India Prepares Orbiting Mars Satellite

first_imgNEW DELHI—India plans to send a small, crewless satellite to orbit Mars in what would be its first visit to the planet. On Friday, the Indian cabinet cleared a proposal from the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for a launch in November 2013. The agency will use its Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, the same rocket that sent Chandrayaan-1 on a successful mission around the moon in 2008. The government has already allocated about $41 million for the Mars mission, which will cost an estimated $112 million. The satellite will carry up to 25 kg of scientific instruments and track a highly elliptical orbit—500 km by 80,000 km—around the Red Planet. Although details are not available, ISRO officials said the mission’s goal is to remotely assess “climate, geology, and the origin, evolution, and sustainability of life on the planet.” Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*) No word on whether there will be opportunities for international collaboration.
