Adobe Closes BrowserLab, Blames Mobile Platform Rise

Posted on by

first_imgWhy You Love Online Quizzes 7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Related Posts When future historians look back and try to determine the exact moment when the personal computer and desktop form factor started to decline, there will be a lot of pointing at Jan. 27, 2010 – the day Steve Jobs announced the iPad. In truth, the downward spiral isn’t marked by one event, but a lot of little incidents that mark the trail.On March 13, Adobe unexpectedly added a chapter to the story of the fading of the PC, when it announced that it would be closing down its BrowserLab service effective… March 13.The closure was as surprising as it was abrupt. BrowserLab enabled developers and web designers to test their work on different desktop browsers and operating systems, to help ensure cross-platform uniformity in look and operation.In a statement to users on the BrowserLab blog, Bruce Bowman, Sr. Product Manager Edge Tools & Services and the Adobe BrowserLab Team, cited the popularity of mobile platforms as the big reason for BrowserLab’s deactivation.“When we originally launched BrowserLab as a free service back in 2009, our customers were struggling with testing their web content across desktop browsers and platforms. Since then with the growth of the importance of mobile devices and tablets, the landscape has changed dramatically. Because of this shift, we have seen the usage of BrowserLab drop over the past year while at the same time our engineering team has been focusing on solving this new challenge with new solutions.“Due to this, we will be shutting down the Adobe BrowserLab Service effective immediately,” Bowman added.The resources BrowserLab must have taken up for Adobe must have been significant, for them to want to retask their team to focus on mobile development. Adobe has long been a strong presence in web design, desktop or otherwise, so it seems odd for them to abruptly drop even an ancillary service like this. While no one would argue that desktop is in decline, it’s not completely going to go away.An unspoken reason here may also be the way major browsers use rolling release schemes, where updates happen transparently and rapidly. Keeping up with those many different browser releases may have been too much of a challenge for Adobe, especially if is focused on delivering a similar service for mobile developers with its Edge Inspect product.BrowserLabs users won’t be left in too much of a lurch: Bowman specifically pointed out BrowserStack and Sauce Labs as two viable alternatives to BrowserLab.In the grand scheme of desktop these days, I suspect the departure of BrowserLabs will create little more than a ripple within the development community. But it is one more signpost on the shift from desktop to mobile, and a potential harbinger to developers focused on the desktop that their tools and services may one day disappear.

A New Way of Conquering PTSD?: US Army Research on Anesthetic Injection

Posted on by

first_imgBy: Bari Sobelson, MS, LMFTPixabay[Patch by ulleo, May 18, 2017, CCO]While we all experience some level of stress after a traumatic event, what distinguishes PTSD  is long-lasting symptoms that don’t subside, may get worse over time, and interfere with daily living. For years, the two main treatments for PTSD have been psychotherapy and medication; with some people choosing to use one or the other and some using a combination of both. However, the US Army is researching a new type of treatment; one that involves a single injection to the neck.The Washington Times published an article this week on the study of Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB) which involves injecting an anesthetic into a bundle of nerves that sits near the base of the neck. According to the Military Times, this treatment technique is showing promising results “relieving symptoms in 70 percent of combat veterans who received it once or more”. This therapy “quelled symptoms of PTSD, such as sleep disturbances, anxiety, and depression… according to the report published in October”.To see how this SGB treatment works, see the video below from the Wall Street Journal:As mentioned in the Washington Times, “Psychologist Ron Hoover, who oversees the study, told the Journal that military officials must take a conservative position when it comes to such treatment… [The Army doesn’t] want to risk service member’s lives or experiment on them”.  It will be interesting to see how this study evolves and what results are discovered. This post was written by Bari Sobelson, MS, LMFT, the Social Media and Programming Coordination Specialist for the MFLN Family Development Team. The Family Development team aims to support the development of professionals working with military families.  Find out more about the Military Families Learning Network Family Development concentration area on our website, Facebook, and Twitter.last_img read more

ED arrests Upendra Rai after bail in CBI case

Posted on by

first_imgThe Enforcement Directorate on Friday night arrested journalist Upendra Rai under the money laundering law, soon after a Delhi court granted him bail in a case of alleged extortion and dubious financial transactions registered by the CBI.An ED team put Rai under arrest under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) at the Tihar jail here, officials said.The Delhi-based scribe was arrested as he was required to be put under custodial interrogation. He will be produced before a court on Saturday, they said.Earlier on Friday, a Delhi court had granted bail to Rai, who was arrested by the CBI last month for allegedly using fake information to gain access to airports across India. Special CBI judge Santosh Snehi Mann granted bail to Mr. Rai on furnishing a bail bond of ₹5 lakh, with two sureties of a like amount. The judge had last month refused bail to the journalist.The counsel for Mr. Rai submitted that no purpose would be served by keeping him in custody as the court had on May 9 rejected the CBI’s plea seeking further custody of Mr. Rai.The other accused in the case are Air One Aviation Limited, its chief security officer Prasun Roy and unidentified Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) officials.At the time of Rai’s arrest, the agency had said that besides property papers and a valid Aerodrome Entry Permit, some confidential documents were also seized. It was alleged that the journalist had applied for the permit in January 2017, as a consultant of Air One, falsely showing himself as a permanent employee of the company.(With PTI inputs)last_img read more

Singur farmers hold rally to demand return of land

Posted on by

first_imgThousands of people on Wednesday took out a rally in Hooghly district’s Singur, demanding the return of their farmland with the slogan: “Tata go back from Singur”. The rally started at the Sahanapara locality and concluded at the main gate of the Tata Motors’ aborted Nano factory site in Singur. Around 7,000 villagers, mostly ‘unwilling’ farmers and their family members, participated in the rally that was spearheaded by Trinamool MLA from Haripal and Singur anti-farmland acquisition committee’s convener Becharam Manna.”We participated in the rally because we want our farmland back. The state government has already taken possession of the acquired land which had been handed over to the Nano factory,” Mahadeb Das, an ‘unwilling’ farmer of Singur, said during the rally.The ‘unwilling’ farmers marched across many villages in and around Singur with placards reading “Tata go back and vacate our farmland”. They also welcomed the state government’s “historic decision” to reclaim the land.”We are very happy. We will now get back our land from the factory,” Das said. According to the records available, over 3,000 ‘unwilling’ farmers never accepted the compensation against their acquired land.Meanwhile, a section of the Singur villagers entered the Nano factory site as the private security guards were withdrawn from the premises on Wednesday morning. They ransacked the abandoned car manufacturing unit and allegedly took away some electric poles, asbestos sheets and iron rods from the Tata Motors unit.”Around 50 villagers, not part of the rally, managed to sneak into the factory and made off with some material,” a Singur villager said.advertisementVisiting Singur on Wednesday, social activist Medha Patkar welcomed the new state government’s move to return the land to the ‘unwilling’ farmers. “Now we can say the farmers of Singur fought bravely and got their due,” Patkar, who also undertook a rally in the area, said.She appealed to the state government to keep in mind the interests of sharecroppers and landless labourers while returning the acquired land.The Forward Bloc, which is among the Left Front constituents, on Wednesday squarely blamed the Tatas for acquiring the “fertile Singur land” for setting up industry. “We all know the land was fertile and the Tata Motors had forcibly acquired the land. The people are watching everything and they will not like this attitude of the Tatas,” party state secretary Ashok Ghosh said.For more News, click here.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

Looking into the future of Ohio State mens basketball

Posted on by

The Ohio State men’s basketball team’s season came to a disappointing end Friday with a 62-60 loss to No. 4-seeded Kentucky. With no more Buckeye basketball to be played this season, looking to the future is the only option. Though the season just concluded, much can already be determined about next year’s squad. The team will return two starters, freshman forward Jared Sullinger and junior guard William Buford, assuming they hold true to their stated intentions not to enter the NBA Draft. The Buckeyes also will welcome back freshman point guard Aaron Craft, who was fifth on the team in minutes played, and freshman forward Deshaun Thomas. Beyond those four seemingly known commodities, the future of OSU basketball becomes less clear. The star Recently named first-team All-American, Sullinger is arguably the most talented player the Buckeyes will have next season. The 6-foot-9 post player led the team in points and rebounds last season with 17.2 and 10.1 per game, respectively. “He’s extremely productive. … He commands a lot of respect,” coach Thad Matta said. “He’s a great player.” The forward also took home Freshman of the Year honors and remains a finalist for the Naismith Award, given to the nation’s best player. With a year of experience under his belt, Sullinger is expected to excel futher during his sophomore campaign. The OSU youngster is likely to be the nation’s front-runner for the Naismith Award next season, regardless of whether he brings home the hardware this year. Sullinger is making sure to put in the work during the offseason. Following his team’s final loss of the season, Sullinger said, “I know I am going to be back in the gym as soon as we get back.” The veteran Although Sullinger likely will be the Buckeye who receives the most attention, Buford will be the one with the most experience. As a senior, Buford will be the only player on the OSU roster who will start the season with more than one year of program experience. He has three full years in the system. Besides leadership, Buford brings a shooter’s touch to the 2011–12 squad. “Will’s an awesome guy,” Craft said. “He’s definitely willing to take his shots, and he (has) knocked them down.” Buford shot 44.2 percent from 3-point range this past season, good for the third-best 3-point shooting season in school history. The guard was also second in scoring on the team, with 14.4 points per game. Buford sits at 22nd in school history in points scored, with 1,424. If he maintains this past season’s scoring pace next season, he will finish fourth. The engine With Sullinger expected to score in the post and Buford expected to score from the outside, Craft will be expected to push the defense and facilitate the offense. Throughout the season, the freshman point guard was praised for his on-ball defensive abilities. Craft, who averaged a team-high two steals a game, embraces the role of lockdown defender. “I’ve always just enjoyed doing it, even in AAU. I always had to guard … the team’s best player,” he said. “It’s something I’ve grown into.” With fifth-year senior forward David Lighty, whom Matta often has called the best defender in college basketball, departing from the program, Craft will be able to take over the role of the team’s best defender. Besides his defense, Craft will be required to set up the offense from his position. The freshman was fourth in the Big Ten in assists last season, with 4.8 per game. “I think as you really get to know Aaron, you get to spend time with him, you watch him develop. It’s amazing,” Matta said. “He’s been so steady throughout the course of the year.” Craft played his best basketball late in the season, logging an OSU-record 15 assists against George Mason in the NCAA Tournament. The tank Thomas came off the bench last season to average 7.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in just 14 minutes per game for the Buckeyes. With the departure of wing players Lighty and Jon Diebler, Thomas likely will be a starter next season. Despite his single-digit scoring average, Thomas scored double figures 10 times during the season and notched 20 or more points on three occasions. “I think we’ve seen, throughout the course, that Deshaun can score in bunches,” Matta said. “He’s a very talented player, and he really has a knack … for finding open areas, finding the seams.” Besides providing instant offense, Thomas’ 62 offensive rebounds were good for second on the team. With added minutes next season, expect those numbers to rise. The unknown Craft and Thomas will likely join Sullinger and Buford in the starting lineup next year. But determining who will fill that fifth spot, and how Matta will use his bench, will be more difficult to determine. The remaining player with any significant playing time from this past season is freshman guard Jordan Sibert, who appeared in 25 games and averaged 8.3 minutes a game. Starting Sibert would create a relatively small starting five. Matta has shown a tendency to start multiple post players in the past. This past season, the coach started the 6-foot-9 Sullinger and 6-foot-8 senior center Dallas Lauderdale. If he wants to go big again, he seems to have two options: Boston College transfer forward Evan Ravenel and incoming freshman center Amir Williams. Ravenel averaged just 3.3 points and 2.4 rebounds in 10.5 minutes off the bench when he played for Boston College. Despite the underwhelming numbers, the forward does have a year in the program on his side. Williams, on the other hand, could become the newest freshman post player to start at OSU. The 6-foot-9 center is the nation’s No. 7 center and No. 73 overall recruit, according to Rivals.com. Matta, who has often used a short bench, will need to decide how he wants to use the remaining talented players. Freshman guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. received playing time in blowout victories, and freshman forward J.D. Weatherspoon did the same before being ruled academically ineligible for winter quarter. Four recruits, including No. 17-ranked point guard and No. 62 overall recruit Shannon Scott, will join Williams in vying for playing time as freshmen. Regardless of how Matta pieces together the puzzle that is next year’s season, the established pieces and young talent are there. Whichever grouping of players the coach relies on will strive to accomplish the goal that the 2010–11 team could not: a national championship. read more
