PAT THE COPE LEADS TRIBUTES TO RONAN KERR IN EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT

first_imgPat the Cope Gallagher MEP has today addressed the European Parliament in Strasburg to condemn the murder of Constable Ronan Kerr in Omagh on Saturday.He thanked the European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek for his statement describing the attack as a pointless and despicable crime.Following today’s Parliament sitting, MEP Gallagher commented: “President Buzek’s strong condemnation of the callous murder of Constable Ronan Kerr shows that Europe stands firmly behind Ireland in our refusal to accept a return to the violence of the past. “In Strasburg today, I spoke on behalf of every member of the European Parliament in expressing my shock and outrage at this heinous crime. This was a cowardly act, carried out by deluded killers who believe they can break the peace on our island.“But Ireland will not be returned to a time of fear and violence and the murder of Ronan Kerr only serves to remind us of that. Every support must be given to the PSNI to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice.“I wish to pay tribute to Ronan’s mother, Mrs Nuala Kerr, for her courageous statement urging Catholics not to be dissuaded from joining the PSNI.“She has displayed remarkable courage at a time of enormous personal grief.

OtherInbox: Organize Your Non-Critical Email For Free

first_imgRelated Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Joshua Baer (@joshuabaer), founder of OtherInbox, was nice enough to sit down with us this weekend at SXSW Interactive and go over what’s new with his company’s product. OtherInbox was developed out of a need to intelligently manage the rest of your mail. That is to say, the mail that you might get from mailing lists, shopping sites, and other services but may not actually be from another human. We all get this mail, and to a greater or lesser extent have developed strategies to manage it, but OtherInbox provides a comprehensive and stylish solution. The big news is that the core service is now free of cost.The basic premise of OtherInbox (or OIB) is that it will identify and organize all the mail that you wouldn’t categorize as critical to read right away, such as receipts, subscription updates, mailing list emails, and so on. For those people who have a single Gmail account (currently OtherInbox only works with Gmail or IMAP accounts) this would represent a drop-in solution to moving all the clutter mail out of the immediate inbox, but keeping it available in case you want to peruse any of it later. phil glockner Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img Once in your OIB mailbox, the story is different. Here, all the mail that you agreed that OIB could import is listed by category (or what OIB calls mailboxes), which you can quickly step through and perform mass actions on, such as marking as read or deleting. The mailboxes can be created manually (there is a new mailbox button at the bottom of the page) or automatically, simply by sending email directly to your custom OtherInbox email domain directly. For example, if your OIB account name was johndoe, you could fill out an online form for some free stuff with the email address [email protected] This would create the new mailbox freestuff in your OIB inbox containing any mail that is sent to you from that site. If a spammer gets ahold of that address, simply click on the block mailbox button and you will never see any email in that mailbox again.We have been using OIB for a few days now, just trying to get a feel for the product as a whole. Some folks may only be interested in using the service primarily for its disposable email address ability, but we think that OIB is looking further and is trying to become the primary repository for all your other mail. You know — the stuff you don’t want but can’t quite get rid of. To that end, OIB is also planning to support other online mail services such as Yahoo! Mail.Finally we should mention that the free service, while offering everything that OtherInbox features without limitation, is restricted to only showing the last 30 days of email that has been introduced into your OIB account. If you stay on top of your OtherInbox mail, this should be no problem. However, if you do want to see everything, you can sign up for the premium service for $19.99 a year. OtherInbox attempts to have as light a touch as possible when it comes to your Gmail account. Mainly, all you will see after it has done its initial pass through your mail is a new otherinbox label that you can use to archive or delete that mail. If you happen to have more than one incoming email address pointing to Gmail, OtherInbox will also automatically create labels for them as well.

Why Innovatio’s Wi-Fi Patent Rampage is a Good Thing

first_img3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Right now, Innovatio says it won’t be targeting individuals – maybe they will, maybe they won’t. Over on ZDNet, Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols says “You may open your mail sometime soon to find a demand for a three-figure licensing fee for your use home Wi-Fi use.”This is the best possible thing that could happen. I know, it sounds crazy – software patent suits are exactly what we don’t want more of, right? Ideally, yes. But the software patent threat has been growing unrestrained for years with little attention. It seems the only way we’ll have any real change is if everybody is made aware of the problem. I can’t think of a more effective way for this to happen than companies like Innovatio going after non-tech businesses hundreds at a time. Even better for a company to have the audacity to go after individuals. Cisco and Motorola are going after Innovatio, trying to have their patents ruled invalid (PDF). Normally, I’d cheer them on – but I kind of hope they fail here. Not because Innovatio deserves to win, but because we’ve finally reached the point where the absurdity of software patents might actually get the public’s attention. IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Related Posts According to the Patent Examiner, a company called Innovatio IP Ventures is suing individual branches of hotel chains for use of Wi-Fi. Though I’m staunchly against software patents – and by extension software patent lawsuits – I think this is a good thing. The company is launching a “systematic campaign” according to Matthew McAndrews, the lead litigator for Innovatio. The company is trying to shake down “several hundred” defendants for $2,300 to $5,000. Says McAndrews, “We want you to continue to use this technology, we just want our client to get his due share. This is not a seat-of-the-pants, fly-by-night shakedown.”It’s Finally Come to ThisMcAndrews is right, it’s not a fly-by-nigh shakedown – it’s the logical next step in an out-of-control system where software patent suits pass for innovation.As long as patent suits are confined to the tech industry, the odds of meaningful change to the patent system seem extremely small. Suits between tech giants like Google and Oracle are considered part of the cost of doing business. Suits by tech giants against smaller players are too valuable a tactic for companies to pass up.Suits against practicing tech companies by patent trolls that are non-practicing entities (NPEs) are seen as a hassle, but defensible. In short, while there’s a lot of hang-wringing about patents in the tech industry, it’s not well-known outside. The dangers of software patents are only just starting to be talked about in mainstream media. The Trolls Are Coming, The Trolls Are Coming!But now, patent trolls are starting to branch out to other businesses. This is a good thing – because at some point, we’ll have to hit a tipping point where it’s blatantly obvious how badly the system needs to be reformed. If the patent trolls confine themselves to the tech industry, it’ll take another decade for serious reform. If the patent trolls start hitting hotel chains, small businesses and other non-tech companies en masse they might just trigger the kind of public outrage that we need to effect change. joe brockmeier 1 Tags:#Analysis#enterprise Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…last_img read more

He’s old enough and mature enough to know he let himself down a little bit but I’m sure he’ll learn from the experience.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

TIFF Next Wave Knows Whats Up

first_img2. Call Me By Your Name, directed by Luca GuadagninoSays TIFF New Wave’s Chloe Bhumgara: Of all of the noteworthy aspects of Call Me By Your Name, its honesty regarding topics such as love, youth, and where they intersect is truly what makes the film special. In essence, your youth is where you make the first discoveries of your character and your identity, molding the person you would like to be into who you are. What makes Luca Guadagnino’s third feature so exceptional is not only that it masterfully captures this emotional journey, but celebrates it for the crucial time of self-discovery that it is.Call Me By Your Name is a universal film, but there also lies a highly individualistic queer love story. It is one that is specific to Guadagnino’s northern Italian countryside setting and the cultural opinion surrounding homosexuality. Scenes are carefully crafted to build an enticing narrative of gay exploration and acceptance, one that has seldom been told throughout film history. This film will resonate deeply amongst teen audiences who will see themselves represented in different ways within these characters. We are looking for new stories on screen, especially ones featuring people from marginalized groups who have been silenced by mainstream cinema for far too long. Call Me By Your Name triumphs in this and in all facets and is a soon-to- be coming-of-age classic. It might just be the defining film of our generation. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Login/Register With: 1. AVA, directed by Sadaf Foroughi AVA (2017).

Although her parents would like her to be docile and accept their ideologies, she soon discovers they have contradictions of their own. The film is set in Iran, but the story feels completely relatable, representing what I love about storytelling the most: that it can unite and make us remember we aren’t so different.How to see it: In TIFF ‘17’s Discovery programme, the film plays Sept. 8 at 6:15PM at the Scotiabank Theatre and Sept. 10 at 9AM and Sept. 17 at 6:30PM at TIFF Bell Lightbox.

Pellegrini Arnautovics West Ham future remains unsolved
