British Baker makes Twitter debut

first_imgBritish Baker is now on Twitter – the real-time social networking and micro-blogging website that allows people or companies to update their ‘followers’ on their latest news.Twitter has taken the internet by storm and is now being used by bakers as a method of communication with their customers.Among those posting their latest updates are Greggs, Cooplands of Doncaster and Hummingbird Bakery in London. Companies can sign up and create a profile on the website, including information about the business, and can post short updates on what they’re up to – of 140 characters or less.Albion cafe and bakery in Shoreditch, London has taken things one step further by installing the latest techno gadget – BakerTweet – which allows the bakery to send a Twitter alert to any of the cafe’s ‘followers’ on the website, whenever new products come out of the oven. BakerTweet is a gadget connected to the internet which sends a message out at the push of a button, whenever a product is ready, and different messages can be set up for the various products.It was produced by Poke, a digital creative agency based across the road from the Albion Cafe, which wanted a way for for its employees to, as they said, ‘perhaps selfishly’, get the freshest products first. The company soon realised its potential and is promoting it to bakers across the country.Follow British Baker on Twitter at http://twitter.com/BritishBakerlast_img read more

Crimson unable to fight off Huskies

first_imgThe Harvard Crimson men’s hockey team faced a familiar foe on a familiar stage Monday (Feb. 8) in the consolation game of the 58th Beanpot tournament. But with just one win in its past six games, struggling Harvard received no consoling from Northeastern (13-12-1), who took down the Crimson (6-14-3; 6-7-3 ECAC), 4-1.The matchup, which was the ninth time since 2000 that the Crimson faced the Huskies in the Beanpot, was the seventh time both teams clashed in the consolation game. But despite Harvard’s 22-16 all-time series record against Northeastern, the Crimson were unable to bounce back from an early two-goal deficit. The defeat followed a 6-0 loss to Boston College in the Beanpot opener on Feb. 1.“I give a lot of credit to Northeastern. I think they wore us down as the game went on,” said Harvard coach Ted Donato. “We started the game a little bit flat, and put ourselves in some tough situations.”The Crimson’s only goal came when a slap shot by freshman forward Conor Morrison found the back of the net at 11:13 into the second period. Although that pulled Harvard within a goal, the Crimson continued their Beanpot scoring woes going scoreless the rest of the game.“Tonight we had a couple chances early. We just weren’t able to get shots through,” said Donato. “I don’t think we were sharp on the power play, and I think at times we looked disorganized in what we were trying to do. We certainly were able to get the puck in control, but weren’t able to get shots in traffic and get second and third opportunities.”Despite their recent losses, the Crimson historically have closed the regular season with momentum after the Beanpot. Last season the Crimson went 4-0-2 in their remaining six games, and in 2008 Harvard closed the season 5-0-1.With four of the remaining six games at home, Harvard’s recent struggles will likely be forgotten with another strong finish to the season. The Crimson currently stand in eighth place, but four points behind fourth-place St. Lawrence.Harvard hosts Rensselaer Friday (Feb. 12) and Union on Saturday (Feb. 13). Both games start at 7 p.m.last_img read more

Paraguayan Navy Seizes Almost 500 Kg of Marijuana

first_imgBy Juan Delgado/Diálogo July 29, 2020 On June 6, the Paraguayan Navy, with the cooperation of the Paraguayan National Anti-Drug Secretariat (SENAD), seized 498 kilograms of marijuana, estimated to be worth about $150,000, while on patrol on the Paraná River in Ciudad del Este, Paraguay, the SENAD said in a press release.“Blow to narcotrafficking,” the Paraguayan Navy said on its Instagram account. “The shipment was about to be sent to Brazil, but it was left behind when the criminals saw the control team,” the SENAD, for its part, said on its Facebook page.During a river patrol, authorities spotted a boat with several people around, who fled as soon as they noticed the security forces. “Based on this suspicious action, we conducted an intense search in the area and found 21 large packages near this canoe […] containing 498 kilograms of pressed marijuana,” the Navy said.Service members continued the search and found another vessel similar to the first one in the same area, which led authorities to assume that traffickers were going to refloat both vessels to send the shipment to Brazil, the Navy said on its statement.With the support of the Specialized Unit against Narcorafficking of the Attorney General’s Office, the shipment of marijuana and the vessels seized were transferred to the Eastern Naval Base to carry out the necessary procedures.“These activities are part of the direct fight against narcotrafficking and aim to prevent people and goods from entering the country illegally, in compliance with the Health Emergency Decree against the spread of COVID-19 in our country,” the Navy said.“The seizures that result from our operations have a direct impact on the finances of crime, as well as on the drug market in our society. We continue to work for the people on a daily basis,” SENAD said on its Twitter account.“From March to June, authorities seized more than 1.5 [metric] tons of pressed marijuana in several operations carried out in the Alto Paraná area,” Lieutenant Commander José María Aguiar Cristaldo, head of the Paraguayan Navy Social Communication office, told Diálogo. “We conducted these procedures with riverine, air, and land patrols that monitor the areas bordering Brazil and Argentina. The marijuana seized is estimated to be worth about $850,000 in neighboring countries, which means a significant loss for narcotrafficking.”last_img read more

Olympia City Council Considers Option to Purchase LBA Woods Parcel

first_imgFacebook178Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by The City of OlympiaOlympia City Council will consider an option to purchase the 74 acre portion of the property commonly referred to as the “LBA Woods”.The Olympia City Council will consider approval of an option to purchase real estate owned by DR Horton, consisting of approximately 74 acres adjacent to LBA Park, at its regular business meeting on July 21. This parcel, located at 3355 Morse-Merryman Road, is the site of the proposed Ashton Woods Development, formerly known as Trillium. As a condition of the option agreement, DR Horton is preserving their ability to move forward with Preliminary Plat Process to protect their ability to develop the property, in the event the City does not fully exercise the option to purchase.Acquisition of “LBA Woods” was the top priority identified by the community during a public process the City recently conducted as part of its update of the Olympia Parks, Arts and Recreation Plan. The option to purchase would preserve the City’s ability to acquire the 74-acre property if voters approve the proposed Olympia Metropolitan Park District (MPD).  The City Council has taken initial action to place an MPD ballot measure before the voters in the coming months.If purchased, this parcel would be the largest property acquired by the City since Grass Lake Nature Park in 1990.  LBA Park would also become Olympia’s fourth largest park behind Priest Point Park, Grass Lake Nature Park, and Watershed Park.last_img read more

Spotlight topics for Embedded.com in 2018

first_imgPeople have started asking us for the Embedded.com Editorial Calendar for 2018. At first, I thought, “What? We only just started 2017,” but then I realized that I must have blinked, because we’re already at the tail-end of 2017. Where does the time go?Regarding the editorial calendar, we will — of course — continue to publish articles across the embedded spectrum throughout the year. On top of this, we will be “Spotlighting” certain topics on a month-by-month basis; the following summarizes the topics for the first six months:January 2018: Low power design vs. (hard) real-time Low-power design once meant sacrificing the low-latency and deterministic response needed in hard real-time designs. Today, IoT developers can take advantage of more advanced MCUs and smart sensors that can meet most application performance requirements without compromising their tight power budgets.February 2018: Security — attack surfaces; secure boot/update; secure storage; secure elements Attempts to lock down embedded systems requires more than impenetrable encryption. Connected systems such as IoT devices present multiple attack surfaces that require protection through comprehensive security policies built on multiple hardware-based security mechanisms able to mitigate threats without compromising system performance.March 2018: Low-power wireless access hardware/software While IoT devices and complementary cloud-based resources provide the critical framework for IoT applications, low-power wireless access provides the critical backbone. In connecting devices to the cloud, developers face critical challenges for power consumption, range, compatibility, and more; fortunately, they can turn to a number of hardware/software solutions.April 2018: Mesh network hardware/software Mesh network technology can enhance the performance of connected systems such as IoT nodes and edge devices. Emerging solutions present a number of alternatives for addressing requirements for IoT networks encompassing thousands of diverse nodes and gateways.May 2018: Rapid development kits (for IoT sensor nodes and gateways) In building IoT applications, developers may discover that developing even seemingly simple IoT system designs can distract from creating the differentiated application itself. IoT-specific development kits address these concerns, providing near production-ready solutions for a broad range of IoT sensor node and gateway requirements.June 2018: Sensor fusion (integrated, a.k.a. “smart,” sensors and SF libraries) Sensor fusion combines raw data from multiple sensors to synthesize new information that cannot be obtained easily from any basic sensor. Smart sensors that integrate sensor fusion capabilities, coupled with specialized sensor-fusion software libraries, offer ready solutions that enable any developer to easily integrate sensor fusion into their IoT applications.If you are a member of the Embedded.com community, then the above list will give you something to look forward to. If you are working for a company in any of the aforementioned spaces, then you should think about contributing one or more articles to share your ideas and expertise. If you are interested in contributing any articles, please contact Steve Evanczuk for more details.
