Netflix Available on Boxee Box at Long Last

first_imgTo show its love on this special Valentine’s Day, Boxee Box announced it will now allow Netflix streaming in the US and Canada. Boxee dealt with some delays — Netflix was supposed to be available to the Boxee Box by the end of 2010, and then it was supposed to be available in January –, but Boxee Box owners can finally breath a sigh of relief.In an e-mail from Boxee, the company said it was bummed it couldn’t get it out sooner, but that it’s “happy to have the Netflix app just in time for Valentine’s Day so our users can have a date night with their Boxee Box (and hopefully a significant other).”The user interface of the new Netflix app is the same as the one recently released for Google TV and Sony’s PlayStation 3. It allows users to search and browse the entire catalog. Automatic firmware updates will roll-out later this week, but owners can force the download now by updating the firmware manually. [Update: The Netflix service will cost $7.99 a month.]last_img read more

The justice system is a fing joke Parents react as sons killer

first_img The scene of the killing. Image: The scene of the killing. Image: ‘The justice system is a f***ing joke’: Parents react as son’s killer jailed for five years Justice Butler was forced to adjourn the hearing when friends and relatives of the dead man reacted angrily to the sentence. 30,801 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Feb 20th 2017, 3:10 PM Share13 Tweet Email center_img By Peter Doyle THE GRIEVING PARENTS of a man stabbed to death during a brawl inside a bed and breakfast branded the justice system a ‘joke’ after their son’s killer was jailed for five years.Terence ‘Terry” Connors (42) had originally been charged with the murder of Peter Conroy (25), at Palmerstown Lodge B&B, Kennelsfort Road Lower, Palmerstown, Dublin 20 on 9 June, 2015.His plea of guilty to manslaughter and not guilty to murder was rejected by the State and last December Connors was convicted by a jury of Conroy’s manslaughter after a one-week trial.Today, at the Central Criminal Court, Connors, of Drumcairn Avenue, Tallaght, Dublin 24, was sentenced to seven years’ imprisonment, with the last two suspended, for killing Conroy.Speaking outside court, the dead man’s parents, Frank and Marion Conroy, broke down as they criticised the sentence handed down by Justice Paul Butler.Conroy said: “Peter was a loving son. He was a rock to us. He was a loving father.He didn’t deserve to be killed the way he was killed. He got no justice. Seven years, with two suspended for another person’s life. Where’s the justice in that? He (Connors) stabbed him four times and he got manslaughter.Wiping away tears, Mrs Conroy added:“How can you put a time on a person? Where’s is the justice?“The justice system is a fucking joke in this country.In any other country, he’d get more. You get more for robbing that you would for murder. His kids can see him walking around, go visit him. We will never see our son again.AdjournmentEarlier, Justice Butler was forced to adjourn the hearing when friends and relatives of the dead man reacted angrily when the sentence was delivered.Gardaí were forced to remove several people from the courtroom after one women shouted: “He (Connors) is laughing in our faces,” and one man rushed at the accused sitting in the dock.Another woman sitting in the public gallery was heard shouting at Connors: “If he smiles once more, I’ll fucking punch him.”During his trial, the court was told Connors had believed his children were in danger as the fighting between guests of the B&B and non-residents intensified when he fatally stabbed his victim.Delivering his sentence, the Justice Butler said that although the accused had returned to the scene of the brawl with a knife and was “seen to make a downwards motion towards the deceased” on CCTV, “the killing lacked the intention of a murder conviction”.The judge said the accused, whom he described as being from “a travelling background”, had “expressed remorse from the bottom of his heart”.However, he said the fact that Connors returned to the scene of the fight with a knife had been an aggravating factor in sentencing.Connors was also sentenced to two months’ jail for assaulting a woman, Elaine Blunt, during the same brawl. The judge suspended this sentence in full.The manslaughter sentence was backdated to 1 October, 2015.EvidenceDuring the one week trial the jury was told that Conroy died after suffering knife injuries to the head and neck. State Pathologist Professor Marie Cassidy said the fatal wound severed a vein causing him to die from bleeding and shock.CCTV showed a row involving two women and several men that began in the B&B at about 3.30am. Most of those involved, including the accused but not the deceased, had been at a wedding reception in Stillorgan earlier that day.Connors arrived home shortly after midnight and went to bed but he told gardai that he woke up to hear his children “roaring and shouting” and calling out for him. He said a fight had erupted downstairs and he grabbed a knife before rushing down.His partner, Brigid Connors, was involved in a fight with Elaine Blunt on the ground floor when Connors came downstairs. He kicked Ms Blunt and was found guilty of assault for this.The fight between the two women continued with one man trying to separate them. He opened the front door of the B&B to put them outside and a group of other men entered, leading to a fight involving the deceased and two of his associates against people living at the B&B.When one of the men threw a naggin of vodka at the accused or his son, who was standing beside him, the accused produced the knife and launched the fatal attack.Read: Over 200 jobs to be created at two new motorway service stations >Read: The figures that reveal Ryanair’s ‘very up and down’ relationship with Shannon Airport > 47 Comments Short URL Monday 20 Feb 2017, 3:10 PMlast_img read more

Rewatching Samurai Jack Episode 11 Jack and the Scotsman

first_imgAfter 12 years away, one of the best, most critically acclaimed cartoon series of all time, Samurai Jack, returns to television later this year with original series creator Genndy Tartakovsky at the helm. To help you get ready,’s Aubrey Sitterson is rewatching the entire series in order.Last week I told you that Episode 11 of Samurai Jack’s first season contained one of my favorite cartoon characters ever. And now, having rewatched “Jack and the Scotsman” for the first time in years, I worry that I may have been a little bit off-base. So right here and now, please allow me to correct my earlier statement: The Scotsman is one of my favorite characters ever, in any medium or genre. What’s more, this stands up as my absolute favorite Samurai Jack episode that we’ve covered thus far.“Jack and the Scotsman” starts the way many episodes of the show do: With long, lingering, speechless shots of Jack’s travels. This episode in particular, however, really nails home the Akira Kurosawa references, as Jack’s march through a hazy, very, for lack of a better term, Asian environment is accompanied by music that is very much reminiscent of the director’s classic Yojimbo (the film upon which Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dollars was based). As Jack walks silently across the screen, it’s hard not to be reminded of Toshiro Mifune’s most famous character, Sanjuro.But the show soon takes a sharp turn, as that serene, Asian aesthetic comes crashing into something louder, brasher, and more rambunctious. And in doing so, Jack himself runs head-first into another hero, a swordsman who is far louder, far brasher and far, far more rambunctious. I am speaking, of course, of the Scotsman.Up until this point, Samurai Jack has presented us with only a single model for a hero in Aku’s world: Jack himself. Selfless, thoughtful, slow to anger, and of few words, Jack is a common ideal in heroic fiction, the nearly flawless warrior whose goals are righteous and whose actions are unfailingly valiant. Jack’s identity as this stoic ideal is central to how the show works, as each episode sees his peerless abilities, calm demeanor and steady hand confronted with new challenges. The Scotsman is something altogether different.While Jack is quiet, the Scotsman is loud. While the Samurai is reticent, the Scotsman is gregarious. He is brash, boastful, and quick to anger, while Jack cultivates a respectful, humble, and calm demeanor. But perhaps most importantly, the Scotsman is hilarious, as evidenced by his relentless barrage of insults – a high watermark for the series’ dialogue – including a hysterical accusation of Jack trying to look up his kilt. The Scotsman is Jack’s opposite, his mirror image in almost every significant way except for two: They are both masterful swordsmen and they are both heroes.The Scotsman represents another type heroic ideal, one that we haven’t yet seen on the show. He isn’t a kind, respectful fighter like Jack – he’s a brash, violent, hot-headed barbarian. But what’s most interesting about the Scotsman as well as this episode is what happens when the two men unsheathe their swords and go to do battle with one another: It ends in a stalemate.It would have been easy for the show’s creators to use the Scotsman as yet another hurdle for Jack to clear, a threat that is built up before Jack ultimately dismantles it. It’s like wrestling booking: A threat is introduced, you see how formidable it is, and then it gets one over on the protagonist before the hero ultimately vanquishes it, looking better and more powerful not in spite of the troubles the threat gave him, but because of them. Thematically it would have also squared with show’s ongoing meta-narrative, about the triumph of Jack’s calm, collected approach and peerless skill. But instead, the show’s creators went a much different and more interesting route: They turned the show into a buddy comedy.Not only do Jack and the Scotsman find themselves unable to defeat one another, but they are literally shackled to one another by the bounty hunters that are after them both. The pair, both of whom begin the episode thinking very little of the other, are forced to work together to survive. It’s a well-worn story but one that is given new life due to the outlandish, over-the-top duo acting it out.First it homages samurai epics, then it introduces a savage, Braveheart-esque Scottish warrior, then it becomes a buddy comedy. Beyond just containing one of my favorite characters ever, “Jack and the Scotsman” also manages to be an exquisite mash-up of some of my favorite genres and tropes, including the one that rears its head with the reveal of who’s hunting the two men: A Southern pig sheriff and a bunch of shotgun wielding alligator robots.That’s right, as if everything up until that point wasn’t enough, the episode’s climactic battle takes place in a swamp overrun with fan-boat riding Southern caricatures. It’s a ridiculous stew, a bizarre mix of influences and genres that works largely based upon the strength of the Scotsman’s character and the way everything about him is juxtaposed with Jack.The episode is a near-perfect introduction for the Scotsman, especially seeing as it gives the audience just enough to pique their interest without ever risking boring them with a character that, admittedly isn’t the most complex or well-rounded (other than his bulbous physique). It might sound odd to say, but there’s a considerable amount of restraint on display when it comes to the Scotsman, a character that, in a set of more hasty hands, could have become a major, recurring part of the series. But instead, knowing that his counterpoint to Jack’s character was best savored in small doses, they’ve chosen to dole him out more judiciously, something we can look forward to in season two.Join us next week as we discuss season one’s penultimate episode, “Jack and the Gangsters.” Watch along with us on Hulu!Aubrey Sitterson is a Los Angeles-based writer whose most recent work is the Street Fighter x G.I.

Hazel Dell natives board books dont bore

first_imgPORTLAND — Twin brothers Kyle and Derek Sullivan grew up in a dark, mysterious forest rich with magical beings. You probably haven’t heard of this place, but here’s a clue for the curious: It’s quite close to that sprawling suburban neighborhood just north of the city of Vancouver — you know, the one bisected by Interstate 5 and Highway 99.Hazy Dell is the mythical overlay where the Sullivan brothers, who attended Hazel Dell Elementary and Jason Lee Middle School, still go hunting for magic and meaning. They’ve had plenty of success capturing those mysterious targets and hauling them into the light of day — in a series of board books for children, where weird creatures stand revealed as not all that scary. In fact, the stars of the Hazy Dell Monster Series are cuddly and comedic. They’re the strange beings that children, and all of us, can relate to sometimes.“Everybody understands what it’s like to be misunderstood,” Kyle Sullivan said. “The monsters are hairy and uncouth. Everybody knows what it feels like to make mistakes, to not fit in.”The bearded Sullivan brothers are 36 years old and truly identical; when The Columbian visited their small office in Southeast Portland, it was a little challenging to remember that Derek Sullivan, in dark blue shirt and brown hair parted on his left, is the illustrator while Kyle Sullivan, in light blue shirt and brown hair parted on his right, is the writer. (“Just say he’s my assistant,” one said about the other — we forget which.)When the brothers were assisting one another to grow up in Hazel Dell, they said, creativity was what kept life juicy. They worked to make one another laugh; they wrote stories, drew pictures and made books with their nerdy friends. The identical brothers’ artistic roles gained definition in high school, and when they left to attend college, Kyle Sullivan earned a bachelor of arts degree in creative writing at the University of Washington and a master’s in English at the University of British Columbia, while Derek Sullivan attended the Art Institute of Seattle and then Western Washington University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in design.last_img read more

Students jazz up Clark College

first_imgClark College’s Gaiser Hall roared with jazz and the din of hundreds of student musicians, representing more than 40 schools around Oregon and Washington, for the 57th annual Clark College Jazz Festival.Doug Harris, the new director of bands at the college following Richard Inouye’s retirement last spring, said that since he’s moved here in August, people he meets keep checking with him to make sure there would be a festival this year.“It’s part of the fabric of the community,” he said.The festival began in 1962, according to organizers, when Hudson’s Bay High School’s band director organized a one-day invitational performance for local high school bands. Vancouver and Evergreen high schools took turns hosting, with the early years’ trophies made from miscellaneous hardware and car parts.Now, the college expected to see more than 1,200 student jazz players, with more than 3,000 guests. Volunteers put in about 800 hours of work to make it all happen.Harris’ acquaintances’ concerns, then, might make some sense.“As far as I’m concerned,” it’s been a glorious success,” Harris said Saturday afternoon, shortly after the Clark College Jazz Band performed it’s last set of the three-day event.last_img read more

Ferry Taku has new owners

first_imgThe Alaska Marine Highway System sold the 55-year-old ferry Taku Friday. It will leave Ketchikan in about a month. (KRBD photo by Leila Kheiry)The Alaska Marine Highway System fleet was reduced by one ship as of Friday morning. Ferry officials signed over the Taku to its new owners during a brief ceremony at ferry system headquarters in Ketchikan.Listen nowIt took almost a year for the state to sell the 55-year-old ferry Taku, but the signing ceremony took only 15 minutes.Before signing off on the sale, ferry system General Manager Capt. John Falvey said the overall sale process has been challenging. And he has mixed feelings.“We’re happy and sad all at the same time,” Falvey said. “The Taku has been with us a long, long time. Unfortunately because of budgets and funding, we’ve had to surplus the ship.”The minimum bid for the ferry was $1.5 million when it first went up for sale in March of 2017. There were no takers at that price.Later, as the price dropped, a Portland, Oregon company wanted to buy the Taku and turn it into a floating hotel. They eventually withdrew their offer, though, and Jabal al Lawz Trading is the Dubai-based company that finally bought the Taku for $171,000.Ben Evans is co-owner of that company. He arrived in Ketchikan the day before signing the paperwork, and toured the Taku. He told the group gathered for the signing that the ship is probably the oldest that he’s ever bought.“It’s probably in the top 10-percent, condition-wise. It’s in amazing condition, which is a great tribute to the team here,” Evans said. “You’ve been maintaining her throughout the years. It’s an absolute pleasure to take her over. It would be a great sadness for me if we do have to take her for demolition in India.”Jabal al Lawz buys older ships for resale or for scrap.Evans said there are some interested buyers in Indonesia, but despite its condition, the Taku’s age will make buyers think twice.Before the official transfer of ownership was signed, Procurement Officer John Wynne said they needed one last transaction.“Ben, do you have a $10 bill in your pocket?” Wynne said as those gathered laughed. “The wire transfer came through and the bank took out $10 more than we thought they would so we need to do the transfer. The final payment of $10 today, for which Capt. Falvey will sign the receipt for.”After that, there were several documents signed by Falvey and Evans, and then notarized.And then Falvey handed over the keys — a whole box of keys.“Is the ignition key in there?” Evans asked, joking.Evans said his key crew members will arrive in Ketchikan over the next few days. They’ll start planning their voyage, and the rest of the crew will arrive within a couple of weeks.Evans said they’ll leave Ketchikan on the Taku in about a month, with the first stop in Seattle. From there,“We’ll swing down towards Honolulu, past the Philippines,” Evans said. “If we have buyers there, we’ll call in, top up fuel there, then Singapore, then India.”Evans said that 11,500-mile trip should take about two months.The Taku has been in storage at Ketchikan’s Ward Cove since since 2015 due to its age, maintenance costs and budget cuts. The Taku started service in Alaska in 1963.last_img read more

Sisi reelected with 92 of vote

first_imgEgyptian president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. AFP file photoEgyptian president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has been reelected for a second term with 92 per cent of the vote, state media reported on Thursday citing preliminary results.Some 23 million of the 60 million registered voters turned out during the three days of polling that ended Wednesday, state-owned newspapers Al-Ahram and Akhbar el-Youm, and the official MENA news agency reported.According to Al-Ahram, in addition to the 23 million who cast valid votes, two million spoiled their ballot papers, inserting the names of candidates who were not among the only two approved.Sisi’s sole challenger was the little-known Moussa Mostafa Moussa, himself a supporter of the president, who registered immediately before the close date for applications, saving the election from being a one-horse race.Other, more heavy-weight would-be challengers were all sidelined, detained or pulled out.Sisi, who ousted Egypt’s first freely elected president—Islamist Mohamed Morsi—after mass street protests in 2013, won his first term in 2014 with 96.9 percent of the vote.Turnout of 47 percent in that year’s election was sharply higher than this year’s 40 percent despite appeals from Sisi for voters to fulfil their patriotic duty.Boycotters who cannot show good reason for not going to the polls could a face a fine of up to 500 Egyptian pounds (22 euros), the electoral commission has warned.last_img read more

When Your Product Design Makes Your Customers Feel Smart

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 4 min read March 28, 2014 This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Users love products and services that make them feel smarter. The more efficiently they can spend their valuable attention, time and money, the smarter they feel. The smarter that users feel when interacting with your product, the more they love it. We call this the smart-user theorem.Strong examples of the smart-user theorem in action abound. Facebook and Instagram save users time by enabling them to connect and share with friends and family quickly and efficiently. Similarly, apps have become popular and ubiquitous, partly because of their availability to fulfill virtually any need or task. Related: The Secret to Successful Product Design? Simplicity.The simplicity of the interface and the entire value chain on the iPad, the ease of planning a trip on Expedia via a mobile device or using Dropbox to store files — these are more examples that offer powerful guiding principles for enterprises as they engage customers with their products and services.Taking this a step further, analyzing customers’ behavior can quantify the time, attention or effort required to engage with a business’ products and services and bring about a new understanding of the user experience. This awareness, in turn, arms businesses with strategies to fine-tune their products and services to be more efficient, streamlined and intuitive.If enterprises carefully evaluate and optimize their products and services to make their users “smarter,” they will be rewarded with loyalty, engagement and a higher transactional value.Related: What Really Fosters Innovation (Infographic)User investments: attention, time and money. There are three types of “capital” that customers invest in your products and services: attention, time and money. First, users turn their attention to your messages, advertisements and product communications. They interpret and internalize your message to inform their next steps.Consumers also spend time thinking about, searching for, discovering, deciding to access, learning about and using your products and services; it’s safe to assume that they spend the same amount of time learning about your competition. Finally, there’s the money part. This one’s pretty obvious: Users pay you for your products and services.The attention, time and money model provides a framework to optimize the design of the end-to-end user experience. Maximizing the value of the attention, time and money spent by users on your products and services can be achieved through a combination of baselining and experimentation.Baselining involves breaking up the product-usage flow into logical stages and measuring the time and attempts it takes users to move through it. In addition, the consumer’s reliance on certain information and features should be analyzed to understand whether they encourage a person to move to the next stage in the flow.Experimentation is the stage whereby, through the use of data analysis or customer interviews, product problems can be identified. Hypotheses are developed and then tested through changes in the product flow until the desired goals are met.Big data’s role in smarter interactions and smarter users. Users save attention, time and money as a result of personalized and customized messages, which enable them to find the right tools to satisfy their needs quickly at the right cost. Creating these messages and products requires capabilities that the processing of Big Data can easily provide. This can involve the following types of analyses:1. User-environment analysis, in which information is collected about the environment where users interact with the product or service.2. User-profile analysis, whereby information is collected about consumers and their characteristics such as gender, age, likes and dislikes.3. User-interaction analysis, in which data is collected about users’ activities and behaviors as they interact with a product along the customer journey.4. User modeling, whereby data is collected and modeled to represent the behavior of a segment or cohort of users. The analyses and subsequent correlations are used to optimize the messages delivered to users according to their environment, profile and behavior patterns, as well as their stage in the customer journey.As users receive personalized messages and information that enable them to be smarter by helping them complete their tasks faster, more inexpensively and with less attention, the overall value realized from the product or service increases. This leads to higher productivity for the user, higher and sustained engagement with the product or service, a customer who feels smarter and, in the end, greater value for your enterprise.  Related: The Ultimate Test: Turning Your Cool Idea Into a Great Product Enroll Now for Freelast_img read more

The campaign, called the Radiation Therapy Readiness Check Initiative, is designed to confirm that patient treatment plans are delivered as intended and that radiation therapy equipment, accessories and patients are properly positioned prior to delivery of therapy.“Radiation therapy is a crucial element in effective cancer treatment and is responsible for turning millions of patients into survivors,” said Dave Fisher, executive director of MITA. “By committing to additional enhanced safeguards and safety checks, radiation therapy manufacturers are doing their part to ensure accuracy and appropriateness before the patient treatment begins.” “These additional readiness check features serve as redundant safety checks so a user can verify that a patient is not about to receive inappropriate levels of medical radiation,” said Janet Trunzo, executive vice president, technology and regulatory affairs, AdvaMed. The Radiation Therapy Readiness Check Initiative will provide technologists, physicists and physicians additional checkpoints to enable radiation therapy procedures to be performed correctly. The initiative includes the following: · Radiation Therapy Pre-Treatment Quality-Assurance Verification and Approval – Treatment plans are initially approved and subject to quality assurance (QA) by authorized professional personnel (e.g., physician, assigned medical physicist) before the device can deliver the treatment. With the new verification, if the system has not recorded a QA approval for an initial and/or modified treatment plan, the machine will not run until authorized professional personnel acknowledge that the QA check is complete.· Verification of Beam Modifying Accessories – Beam modification techniques are essential to focusing medical radiation to kill cancer cells while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues. The enhanced beam modification check verifies the correct placement of appropriate beam modifying accessories (e.g., wedges, blocks, compensators, etc.) and prevents a machine from operating if the accessories are incorrect, missing, or out of place.· Patient Positioning Confirmation Enhancements to the treatment system will generate a visual representation of the planned relative positions of the patient and the treatment device to allow the operator to quickly compare with the patient’s actual position. The operator can confirm visually that the patient is positioned as intended in the treatment plan. The operator will then have to enter a confirmation of a positive comparison. MITA and AdvaMed radiation therapy manufacturers have agreed to begin work immediately on implementing these initiatives into new products and making them available on compatibly configured products in the installed base within two years. MITA and AdvaMed member companies provide the vast majority of radiation therapy equipment in the United States as well as worldwide.

Bruce Arians expressed what he thought of Colin Ka

first_imgBruce Arians expressed what he thought of Colin Kaepernick’s protest. (Associated Press) I apologize for misspeaking my true sentiments. To clarify, I support Colin’s motivation. It’s his method of action that I take exception to— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) August 29, 2016Kaepernick has confronted the criticisms by saying his sitting is a protest of a nation that has seen several cases of police brutality of late.“There is police brutality,” Kaepernick told 49ers reporters on Sunday. “People of color have been targeted by police. So that’s a large part of it and they’re government officials. They are put in place by the government. So that’s something that this country has to change. There’s things we can do to hold them more accountable. Make those standards higher.“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told in an interview. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The comments are similar to that of Kaepernick’s former San Francisco head coach, Jim Harbaugh, who is now leading the Michigan Wolverines. Harbaugh misspoke Monday when asked about Kaepernick’s protest during a press conference but clarified his point on Twitter.
