Knight Foundation and Mozilla send geeks into newsrooms

September 4th, 2017

Friday, November 11, 2011

In London last weekend, journalists, software developers, filmmakers, designers and many others spent time discussing ideas and building tools at the 2011 Mozilla Festival at Ravensbourne College. Following the theme of “Media, Freedom and the Web”, many attendees developed prototypes around the idea of the future of media including tablet interface prototypes for the Boston Globe, designs for open source software for DJs, and hacks to enable journalists to combine video and original source text together to tell stories in more interactive ways.

One important announcement made at the event was details of five new fellowship places sponsored by the Knight Foundation and the Mozilla Foundation that attempt to bring together journalists and open source-minded software geeks. Wikinews spoke to Laurian Gridinoc, who currently works at Talis building software for higher education but will move for a year to the BBC to work in the newsroom. Other fellows will be working for The Guardian, Al-Jazeera, the Boston Globe and Zeit Online.

Gridinoc says the Fellowship intends to “introduce innovation in the newsroom by embedding some developers as fellows”. The fellows will collaborate with people within the news organization. They hope to be open about how they are changing the newsroom. Gridinoc says he and the others will “blog about making the news, on how things can be done, and how [open source] tools can be used”, and he specifically will work on trying to increase the use of linked data, a practice already embraced by the BBC. “Adaptive documents” were another area of interest for Laurian: having stories where illustrations and examples dynamically adapt to the particular reader.

According to the fellows speaking as part of a panel discussion, many newsrooms reject the use of open source tools even for producing maps, graphs and infographics.

How journalists adapt to the web was a theme throughout the weekend, with sessions teaching journalists to write HTML and write basic scripts in Ruby to scrape websites, discussions on Creative Commons and what “hacker journalism” entails. One group worked on collaboratively produced handbook on “data journalism” while others tested and refined Ushahidi, a crowdsourced news tool that was used during the earthquakes in Haiti and Chile in 2010 and in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2011.

Three Walmart superstores open in Canada

Three Walmart superstores open in Canada

September 4th, 2017

Wednesday, November 8, 2006

Wal-Mart Canada’s first three supercenters opened in Ancaster, London and Stouffville, Ontario.

The idea originally started in the United States in late 2005 and was announced that it would be arriving in Canada.

Flat screen TVs suspended from the ceiling will feature a television network, featuring fashion shows of Wal-Mart’s clothing lines, TV commercials featuring brands the retailer carries, and corporate messages.

With an expanded selection of electronics, hardware, home and housewares, the Wal-Mart supercentre could be compared to Future Shop, Home Depot, Home Outfitters, Shoppers Drug Mart, and Fortinos. The supercentre has wider aisles, higher ceilings, clear signage, and cash registers in selected departments such as electronics and clothing.

“Our goal is to become the one-stop shop for customers,” said Mario Pilozzi, chief executive of Wal-Mart Canada. “You see how fresh that is today? We are going to maintain that freshness in these stores.”

Wal-Mart’s Canadian supercentres are more sophisticated then their U.S. counterparts, because Canadian grocers have created higher expectations among the average consumer, company officials say.

However, Wal-Mart openings are controversial in many communities. Activists claim they can be detrimental to local economies, driving out locally owned businesses, lowering wages, and leading to suburban sprawl.

Wal-Mart already has plans to open fourteen new supercentres in 2007, of them Scarborough, Sarnia, Brampton and Vaughan will be early in the year.

Easy Way To Express Your Love}

August 27th, 2017

Submitted by: Social Engtuto

We all know love is the best and purest feeling in the world. But it is not always very easy to express love, no matter how intense your love is. So, what do you do when you are stuck between whether I should say it all and hold back? You must communicate your feelings without worrying about the response. If you are hesitant about verbalizing your feelings, you must text him/her a beautiful love quote followed by three magical words and stay calm.

Some examples of love Quotes: (http://engtuto.com/love-quotes/)

“Some people care too much. I think its called love. LOVE” – A. A. Milne

“Promise you wont forget me, ever. Not even when Im a hundred.” – A. A. Milne

“When you are with somebody you love the smallest, smallest things can be so important, so amusing because love transforms the world, everything. And was that what had happened?” – Alexander Mccall Smith

“Love removes the world for you, and just as surely when it’s going well as when it’s going badly.” – Alice Munro

“If I had but an hour of love,if that be all that is given me,an hour of love upon this earth,I would give my love to thee.” – Alice Sebold

If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you. A. A. Milne

Love is the strongest emotion any creature can feel except for hate, but hate cant hurt you. Love, and trust, and friendship, and all the other emotions humans value so much, are the only emotions that can bring pain. Only love can break a heart into so many pieces. Amelia atwater-rhodes

Some example of Friendship Quotes: (http://engtuto.com/friendship-quotes/)

Well be friends until forever, just you wait and see. A. A. Milne

Ill tell you a big secret, my friend. Dont wait for the Last Judgment. It takes place every day. Albert Camus

How can sincerity be a condition of friendship? A taste for truth at any cost is a passion which spares nothing. Albert Camus

Who neer knew joy but friendship might divide, Or gave his father grief but when he died. Alexander Pope

True friendships laws are by this rule expressd, Welcome the coming, speed the parting guest. Alexander Pope

No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow. Alice Walke

I cannot concentrate all my friendship on any single one of my friends because no one is complete enough in himself. Anas Nin

What I cannot love, I overlook. Is that real friendship? Anas Nin

What men call friendship is only social intercourse, an exchange of favours and good offices; it comes down to a commercial dealing in which self-esteem always expects to profit. Andr Maurois

Well fitted for friendship is he whom men have not disgusted with mankind, and who, believing and knowing that there are a few noble men, a few great minds, a few delightful souls scattered through the crowd, never tires of searching for them, and loves them even before he has found them. Andr Maurois

When people are friends, they have no need of justice, but when they are just, they need friendship in addition. Aristotle

Friendship is essentially a partnership. Aristotle

Several injured at campground in Maine as storm topples trees

August 27th, 2017

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

A family of six were injured at Flat Rock Bridge Family Resort and campground in Lebanon, Maine after a severe thunderstorm caused trees to topple, with one landing on a tent. A 10-year-old girl was critically injured after a tree fell on the tent she was sleeping in. Witnesses say the girl was pinned under the tree for at least 10 minutes before they were able to remove it.

Witnesses also say the day was beautiful and sunny, but at around 6:00 p.m. (EDT) a storm rolled in, darkening the sky, followed by heavy winds and rain. Witnesses describe a “funnel-like wind” which lifted items off the ground and threw them around. The strong winds then brought down trees and limbs, with one landing on the family’s campsite and tent. Severe lightning was also reported.

“The female patient was loaded into Lebanon Ambulance One and transported to Frisbie Hospital in Rochester to be stabilized and then was transferred to the trauma center at Maine Medical Center. Her injuries were considered critical and life threatening when she left the scene,” said Jason Cole, the assistant rescue chief for the area. The victims names have not been released and the girl’s current condition is not yet known.

Rescuers responding to the scene noticed several other trees and limbs scattered around other campsites and searched all 350 sites, but no other injuries were reported. Other campers say they had several close calls with tree limbs and debris. At least 12 trees were reported to have toppled during the storm. The family’s car was also destroyed when a tree limb landed on it.

The National Weather Service in Maine says it will investigate whether or not the storm produced a tornado.
