Tackling drought crucial in finding food crisis solution – UN

25 April 2008Addressing drought is essential in resolving the food crisis the world faces, the United Nations agency tasked with minimizing the threat posed by natural disasters said today. Both drought and unsustainable water management have played a key role in the current problem, and managing drought risk is essential to finding a long-term solution to the crisis, according to a press release issued by the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR).Reports of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – last year’s Nobel Peace Prize laureate – have shown unequivocally that the world is warming, almost certainly due to human activity, with potentially disastrous effects including worsening drought in some regions and heavier rainfall in others.“Drought creeps, so we can outrun it,” said Sálvano Briceño, Director of the ISDR Secretariat. “But this will take a genuine mindset and policy shift towards the ethos that prevention is better than cure, and serious political and economic commitment to saving harvests and lives on a global economic level.”Major food exporters such as Australia and Ukraine are experiencing the effects of drought, serving as examples of how climate change can trigger future food crises.Water scarcity contributes to food scarcity, and, as the IPCC has pointed out, billions of people are at the risk of water stress by the end of the century unless carbon emissions are slashed and urgent adaptation actions are taken.ISDR said that a greater emphasis must be placed on disaster risk, urging communities and nations to enhance their defences against global warming, drought and desertification through such measures as improved water management.Yesterday, the head of the UN World Food Programme (WFP) warned that soaring food prices across the globe are threatening the agency’s efforts to feed the world’s hungry.WFP Executive Director Josette Sheeran warned of the “new face of hunger” – the millions being pushed into the urgent hunger category.“We’re also concerned because this isn’t just an issue of hunger, but also an issue of instability,” she said, with protests against soaring food prices having been held in dozens of countries. read more

Student protests hurting one of Montreals biggest barhopping streets

Student protests hurting one of Montreal’s biggest bar-hopping streets MONTREAL – Bar hopping, shopping and dining out in downtown Montreal are taking a hit due to ongoing student protests that business owners say are chasing their customers away due to traffic headaches.The owner of downtown landmark Ziggy’s Pub, frequented by the late author Mordecai Richler, said his patrons aren’t sticking around for after-work drinks. He estimates business has dropped 60 per cent.“A lot of people, as soon as the day is finished, they get into their cars and go back home,” said Ziggy Eichenbaum, whose pub is on Crescent Street, a well-known destination for restaurants and bars.“You walk around downtown at night and you could take a bowling ball and throw it,” Eichenbaum said Wednesday.“If you don’t hit a student, you won’t hit anybody. You won’t hit a client.”The demonstrations over increased tuition fees of several hundred dollars per year continued on Wednesday with a group of student protesters storming into a downtown university, many of them with their faces covered by masks, and disrupting classes.The student unrest has lasted 14 weeks with almost daily demonstrations. Only one-third of Quebec students are actually on declared strikes, but the conflict has created considerable social disorder and has included smoke bombs that shut down Montreal’s subway system.The Quebec government was looking at the possibility of adopting emergency legislation — a law reportedly laden with financial penalties for people who have played a role in encouraging the ongoing disruption, which began in late February.The owner of Thursday’s restaurant, also on the popular Crescent Street, said he has about 20 per cent fewer customers, which he called the “difference between a profit and a loss.”“It’s been devastating,” said Bernard Ragueneau. “Nobody wants to go downtown. We’re actually being held hostage.”Tourists and locals aren’t frequenting the street as much, going from bar to restaurant to bar as they normally do, because of the demonstrations, he said.“Forget it. Bar hopping is gone,” Ragueneau said. “We’re being held hostage.”The Montreal Chamber of Commerce estimated that business overall is down 15 per cent at retailers and restaurant owners in the downtown core and student protests have cost several million dollars in economic damage to the city.“The fear is night-time demonstrations, which results in some streets being closed, and it leads people to want to go other neighbourhoods than the downtown,” said Michel Leblanc, the chamber’s president and CEO.“It’s not a worry about violence that’s keeping people away, it’s more worry about congestion,” Leblanc said of traffic tie-ups and detours resulting from the protests.Leblanc said the long-term worry is the protests will result in people becoming used to avoiding downtown activities.“We’ve signalled to the government that there will be repercussions and we hope the conflict will be settled quickly.”Some merchants worry the students will try to disrupt the Grand Prix Formula One race, which is expected to bring in tens of millions of dollars to Montreal’s economy when it’s held on the weekend of June 9.“We’ve got two weeks before the Grand Prix for the mayor and the premier to decide no more masks,” he said of protesters who have hidden their faces.Students have already blocked bridges, disrupted shareholder meetings for Power Corp. (TSX:POW) and the National Bank (TSX:NA) and entered workplaces where mining companies are located.Meanwhile, police costs have escalated. Montreal police have temporarily hired 150 officers due to the protests and the police union has said overtime costs were expected to be between $2 million and $3 million. The Quebec provincial police overtime bill was estimated at $1.5 million.However, Tourisme Montreal says the student demonstrations have had no impact so far on the number of visitors coming to the city. by LuAnn LaSalle, The Canadian Press Posted May 16, 2012 5:28 pm MDT read more

Everything you need to know about the bank guarantee but were afraid

first_imgWHEN NEWS CAME through on the morning of 30 September 2008 that the Irish government had guaranteed the country’s banks, many did not know what to make of it.Why was it needed? Was it a good thing? Would it cost the taxpayer?Many of the questions could not be answered immediately but five years and €64.1 billion later, the Irish public are much more knowledgeable about the now infamous move.The two words are bandied about now to explain away our current economic quagmire but what did it do and what does it mean for us now? explains…What banks were covered by the bank guarantee?Six Irish institutions were covered by the guarantee – AIB, Bank of Ireland, EBS Building Society, Irish Life & Permanent, Anglo Irish Bank and Irish Nationwide.What money and investments were included?When commentators call it a ‘blanket guarantee’, they are not exaggerating. The government guaranteed pretty much everything.On top of all customer deposits, any money that was loaned to an Irish bank was included in the guarantee. That meant the government was effectively saying to each creditor and bondholder (person/company/fund/country that is owed money) that they would be paid back, in full, regardless of what happened to their original investment.The guarantee included all types of bonds, regardless of how ‘risky’ they were deemed by the borrower at the time. (Imagine somebody guaranteeing Paddy Power’s bets on Crystal Palace winning the English Premier League next year).Subordinated bondholders were covered, as well as senior and secured bondholders. The only exception was about €8.2 billion of undated junior debt.So, how much was all that?The estimated total of guaranteed liabilities was about €440 billion. To put some context on that number, it was about 10 times the national debt.Did it include ordinary people’s deposits?Yes.The Deposit Guarantee Scheme (DGS)had been increased from €20,000 to €100,000 earlier in September 2008. It was also expanded to include credit unions for the first time.But as part of the 30 September 2008 guarantee, 100 per cent of ALL deposits (regardless of the amount) was guaranteed in the six institutions.That guarantee expired on 29 September 2010. The initial DGS then came back into play, is still in place and does not have an end date.Why was it needed at that time?The financial sector was in turmoil across the world and Irish banks were being hit hard.They were losing deposits, share prices had plummeted and confidence – which is a always a vital cog in banking sectors – was at an all-time low.Although the issue of solvency would eventually emerge as the main problem, the focus in September was about liquidity. The banks – and, in turn, the government – believed the issues could be solved with injections of cash.The guarantee aimed to increase confidence, encouraging the international markets to begin lending to the Irish institutions again – at a reasonable cost of borrowing.How did other countries react?The initial reaction was bad. Europe was not happy that Ireland acted unilaterally, while the UK was worried that the government had undercut British banks. They expected savers to send a tsunami of money to Irish institutions as they were now, actually, the safest places in the world in which to place money. Why? Well, investors could not lose. The government had essentially told people that they were so confident that people would not lose money on their investments, that they would back them.Brian Lenihan’s counterpart in Britain, Alistair Darling, said it put UK banks in an impossible situation.Angela Merkel described the development as “unacceptable”, adding that the “Irish way is not the right way”.How did the banks react to it?The government’s decision gave the banks some breathing space. Take Anglo as an example. Seánie Fitz’s baby was on a cliff. It was about to go under and knew it could not last another day’s trading.The world had already seen Lehman Brothers go bust just a couple of weeks earlier so a similar fate for the Irish lender wasn’t outside the realm of reality.The recently published Anglo tapes revealed boss David Drumm talking about ‘getting the money’ in during the days following the government’s announcement.In public at the time, they were more demure putting out a message of ‘business as usual’ within the sector.Did the banks try to benefit from it?After the criticism from Europe, the government had to be careful to ensure that banks were not seen to be using the guarantee as a selling mechanism.However, it was somewhat inevitable.Irish Nationwide Building Society were given a slap on the wrist and a €50,000 fine when it emerged that Michael Fingleton Junior had sent emails to bankers in London trying to convince them to move deposits his way on the back of the guarantee.Did the guarantee work?Well, quite obviously, no.In a way, the financial system called the government’s bluff. Brian Cowen, Brian Lenihan et al. tried to fix the situation by standing firm behind the Irish banks, granting them the kind of confidence boost they craved.But it didn’t last long.It wasn’t long before the cash injections required by the banks were costing big time. Lenders then began charging penal interest rates in order to lend to the Irish government, knowing that it had to back the constantly-growing banking losses.It eventually led to the Fianna Fáil/Green Party coalition calling on the international powers – soon to be well-known, but not fondly, as the Troika – for help. €64.1 billion worth of help.When did the guarantee come to an end?Some form of bank guarantee remained in place until midnight, 28 March 2013.However, that doesn’t mean the government isn’t responsible for bonds issued while the guarantee was in place. All bonds issued between 30 September 2008 and 28 March 2013 are covered and are worth tens of billions of euro.Two of the covered banks, Bank of Ireland and Permanent TSB, issued new bonds on the last week of the guarantee. Bank of Ireland borrowed €5 billion, while Permanent TSB raised €3.065 billion, with both bonds due for repayment in March 2015.How much did it end up costing the State?€64.1 billion.In return, the State now holds a 15 per cent stake in Bank of Ireland and owns 99.8 per cent of AIB, as well as EBS (as a subsidiary of AIB), Permanent TSB* and what remains of Anglo Irish Bank and Irish Nationwide**.*The Irish Life arm of Irish Life & Permanent was sold to Canada Life**The failed institutions became the IBRC which was put into liquidation earlier this year.

Neighbours saw slavery case women walking near flats every day

first_imgRESIDENTS IN FLATS near the south London home where three women — including a 57-year-old from Ireland — were allegedly held captive for thirty years have said they often saw the women walking outside and even talking to police.One resident of Peckford Place flats in Brixton told Channel 4 News he saw the women outside in the area “every day” and had often seen them speaking with officers.“That’s why I don’t know how they couldn’t go to the police. They even talked to the police. I’ve actually seen them talk to the police. That’s why it’s crazy to me.The neighbour said that though the women spoke to police officers, they didn’t “talk to people”.Another resident spoke of how he had once called to the door of the home, and said that all five residents had come to the door at once.“There was five people at the door basically, and, it was just weird… like they wanted to say something but they didn’t.”Officers believe two of the three women victims met the male suspect in London “through a shared political ideology” and that they lived together in “a collective”.Efforts are now under way to establish how that collective came to an end and how the women ended up continuing to live with the suspects.Met Police Commander Steve Rodhouse spoke of “invisible handcuffs” that were used to control the women, and said they had built up a “disturbing picture of emotional control over many years”.Officers stand outside the flats yesterday [Dominic Lipinski/PA Wire/Press Association Images]Along with the Irish woman, a 69-year-old Malaysian and a 30-year-old British woman were also rescued on 25 October, one week after first making secret telephone contact with a charity.The two suspects in the case, a man and woman, have been released on bail.  It was confirmed yesterday that they are originally from India and Tanzania and came to Britain in the 1960s.Residents at Peckford Place said the flats had been built in 2005, meaning the women and the suspects must have moved there in the course of their alleged imprisonment.Officers have been carrying out door-to-door enquiries in the area this weekend.Rodhouse said police were still working “to gain the trust and confidence of the highly traumatized victims” and said the process would take time.Read: Enslaved women traumatised but doing ‘remarkably well’ >More: Irish Embassy in London look to establish details behind woman freed from slavery >last_img read more

So just what IS the Song of the Summer this year

first_img Am I wrong is the song of the summer— John Murphy (@jmurph725) July 18, 2014 LAST YEAR, WE had Get Lucky and Blurred Lines duke it out for the honour of Song of the Summer. Both were universally beloved and are destined to be played at weddings for time immemorial.This year, however, things are a little more up in the air with several viable contenders vying for the title of Summer Jam ’14.First things first, I’m the realest. Secondly, the Song of the Summer is surely Fancy, no?Across the Atlantic, Fancy by Iggy Azalea has reigned supreme having spent seven weeks at number one in the Billboard Top 100.Is it the song of the summer here in Ireland, though? If you take Top 40 and radio airplay data into account, then not really. The song has failed to crack the top ten, peaking at no. 12 since its release and during the week of July 10th – 16th, the song ranked at just no. 37 in the Irish radio airplay charts.Huh. So how are we going to find out what the Song of the Summer?With the aid of Top 40, Spotify and radio airplay data, that’s how.Sounds scientific. Who are the contenders?We’re about to find out. Coldplay – A Sky Full of Stars Source: Coldplay Official/YouTubeRelease date: May 2ndTop 40 peak: 3Airplay chart (July 11th – 17th): 1Spotify chart: 7Verdict: When you hear the name Coldplay, you may not be inclined to think “summer jam”. But there you’d be wrong.  While the refrain (“‘Cause you’re a sky full of stars”) may sound like it was written in Chris Martin’s sleep, they’re clearly on to something as it continues to dominate both Top 40 and airplay.John Legend – All Of Me Source: johnlegendVEVO/YouTubeRelease date: What feels like four years ago.Chart peak: 1Airplay chart ranking (July 11th – 17th): 6Spotify chart: 12Verdict: Yes, it may still be no. 2 in the charts and all over the radio waves, but we refuse to acknowledge it as a contender. Next.Sam Smith – Stay With Me Source: SamSmithWorldVEVO/YouTubeRelease date: April 25th Chart peak: 1Airplay chart ranking (July 11th – 17th): 5Spotify chart: 9Verdict: A good song, to be sure, and perfect for trailers/montages. But this gospel-soaked number is perhaps a little too deeply felt and serious to be named Song of the Summer.Calvin Harris – Summer Source: CalvinHarrisVEVO/YouTubeRelease date: March 14thChart peak: 1Airplay chart ranking (July 11th -17th): 11Spotify chart: 8Verdict: A club song that’s radio-friendly and literally called Summer? Good effort, Calvin Harris, but it’s just a little too try-hard to be the actual song of the summer.Ella Henderson – Ghost Source: EllaHVEVO/YouTubeRelease date: June 8thTop 40 peak: 1Airplay chart (July 10th – 16th): 2Spotify chart: 3Verdict: A total earworm that you’ll likely hate a little bit by the end of the summer, but with strong showings on both radio and the charts, 18-year-old Henderson could wind up being crowned Queen of the Summer.Ed Sheeran – Sing Source: Ed Sheeran/YouTubeRelease date: April 7thTop 40 peak: 1Airplay chart (July 10th – 16th): 3Spotify chart: 2Verdict: Still lingering in the top ten at no. 7 after nine weeks, this one bears Pharrell Williams’ Midas touch. Sheeran is already behind the biggest album of the summer and anyone who saw him lead a sing-a-long of this at Glastonbury will tell you that this one is a strong contender – if not the winner – for the title.Ariana Grande – Problem feat Iggy Azalea Source: ArianaGrandeVevo/YouTubeRelease date: June 30thChart peak: 1Airplay chart ranking (July 11th – 17th): 9Spotify chart: 1Verdict: Addictive sax riff? Check. Guest rap verse? Check. Babyfaced singer à la Carly Rae Jepsen AKA Queen of Summer 2012? Check. Problem has all the hallmarks of a summer hit. Early days for it yet, but it’s showing legs.Is that it?Not quite. There are three pretty likeable, if slightly interchangeable pop/dance tracks doing extremely well in both the Top 40 and airplay charts at the minute: Waves by Mr. Probz, Jubel by Klingande and Am I Wrong by Nico & Vinz, with the latter in particular making a strong case for itself. Sure, they’re all catchy, but will we be dancing to any of them at weddings in years to come? Doubtful. And that is the true Song of the Summer litmus test.Anything else that may emerge as a contender?Rude by MAGIC! just nabbed the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in the States, dethroning Iggy Azalea in the process and is quickly ascending the airplay chart here. Source: Milky Chance/YouTubeDitto Stolen Dance by German duo Milky Chance, which has been a smash all over Europe and is starting to break through here with a showing on the iTunes Top 20  and ranking at number four on the most Shazam’d songs in Ireland.For now, though?We’re calling it a three-horse race between Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande and Ella Henderson.

KPop Group Twice Release What Is Love EP Music Video

first_img Twitter News Facebook The all-female K-pop group has released their fifth EP with a colorful music video to matchRenée FabianGRAMMYs Apr 9, 2018 – 4:27 pm K-pop group Twice — comprising nine members Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, and Tzuyu — are back April 9 with their fifth EP, What Is Love?The popular all-female group’s record includes five new tracks: the title song, “Sweet Talker,” “Ho!,” “Dejavu,” and “Say Yes.” Fans who purchase a physical copy of the EP will also receive the bonus track “Stuck.”To celebrate the EP’s release, Twice also dropped a music video of the title track, which takes its inspiration from films such as Ghost, The Princess Diaries, La La Land, and Pulp Fiction to match the song’s opening lyrics: “Every day in a movie, in a book, or in a drama, I feel love I learn about love/My heart keeps beating as if it’s my own story.” The video already has nearly 9 million views on YouTube.The song itself features an electro-pop vibe that Billboard says “sprinkles digital quirks, sparkling chimes and staccato’d percussion over the bubblegum melody, as the nonet sing about their desire to discover the elusive feeling that they’ve learned about through fictional depictions of what love is.” Twice are one of the top K-pop groups to come out of South Korea since their formation thanks to JYP Entertainment through the reality TV show “Sixteen.” They released their debut EP, The Story Begins, in 2015, which sealed their spot among K-pop’s elite.

AB de Villiers better than Virat Kohli Nathan Lyon picks Mr 360

first_imgNathan Lyon described AB de Villiers as the hardest batsman he bowled to, not Virat KohliIANSIn his now highly-successful career, Nathan Lyon has bowled to all the great batsmen who have played in his era. From the likes of Sachin Tendulkar to Virat Kohli, the off-spinner has been tested against the best batters in the world. But when he was asked in an interview to name the batsman he found most difficult to bowl at, the Australian chose AB de Villiers.The reason cited by him for his choice presents the reason why the South African has earned the epithet of Mr 360. Lyon said on ‘The Back Page Live,’ an Australian television show, that while bowling to de Villiers, he felt that the former Proteas batsman could hit him anywhere at any time.Considering that Indian batsmen were traditionally regarded as the most skilful in playing spin, it comes as a big surprise that Lyon faced most difficulty not from an Indian, or for that matter any other Asian, but a South African.Lyon’s recordIn his career, the 31-year old Aussie has played 15 Tests against South Africa and 18 against India. Kohli and de Villiers have been present in almost all these matches of their respective teams. So, it says a lot about de Villiers’ ability to play spin that the offie rates him higher than any other batsman.If we were to look at the record of the off-spinner against the two teams, he has done considerably better vs the Indians. While he has 85 wickets against the Asian giants with an average of 32.60 and strike rate of 60.2, against South Africa, he has 46 wickets at an average of 42.28 and strike rate of 83.7. The disparity can partly be attributed to highly spin-friendly conditions that the bowler had on his two visits to India.But even when it comes to bowling in his own country, he has a clearly better record against the sub-continental side. Gary, as he is fondly called by his teammates, has taken 18 wickets in 6 Tests against the South Africans in Australia at an average of 46.22 and strike rate of over 91. Against India at home, he has 51 wickets in 11 Tests and with an average just under 34 and strike rate a shade under 66. Clearly, home or away, Lyon loves bowling at the Indian team. Nathan Lyon has enjoyed great success against IndiaReutersSouth Africa’s better record against LyonIt is noteworthy that India’s supposed dominance against spin bowling has considerably declined in recent years. Even somebody like Kohli has had difficulties facing good spinners in the past. De Villiers, on the other hand, seems highly adept at playing the slower bowlers. Having been a hockey player in his pre-cricket days, he seems to have wonderful wristwork that allows him to place the ball in whichever area he desires.Lyon has had the opportunity to bowl at both Kohli and AB when they were in prime form. When South Africa famously saved a Test at Adelaide in 2012 by batting out the entire fifth day, de Villiers played his part by stonewalling Lyon and co for 220 deliveries while scoring just 33 runs. In the very next match at Perth, he scored a magnificent 169 to help his team win the match and series. In the last series between the Aussies and South Africans, the infamous 2018 rubber, de Villiers again starred with a superb knock in the second Test which allowed the Proteas to level the series after losing the first match.Kohli too has enjoyed great success against Australia. He has seven Test hundreds against the kangaroos, six of them scored away from home. Of these, four came in the 2014/15 series alone. Yet, Lyon has picked up the wicket of Kohli seven times in Tests, the most for any bowler in the format.So clearly, Lyon has good reason to rate de Villiers higher. But while the South African has retired from international cricket, Kohli remains and will remain active for some time to come. Hopefully, we will some more riveting contests between the two.last_img read more

PS4 owners watch 3x as much porn as Xbox One owners

first_imgIt’s 2014 and considering the prevalence of mobile devices and game consoles, an increasing number of people are watching their porn on a device that isn’t a normal PC or television. According to SugarDVD — basically the Netflix of porn — a lot of people watch porn on their newly minted PS4 and Xbox One consoles. However, PS4 owners watch porn about three times more than Xbox One buyers.Like Netflix, SugarDVD began life as a DVD-by-mail service, and added a streaming option as time moved on. It can be accessed on just about any device that has a modern web browser, which means you can watch the Netflix of porn on game consoles. SugarDVD tracked the viewing habits of console patrons, and found that PS4 owners consume much more porn than Xbox One owners. Now, you might think that’s because Sony is selling twice the amount of PS4 consoles as Microsoft is selling Xbox Ones, but SugarDVD notes that the ratio is still too out of whack.When you think about it, the Xbox One is definitely more media-focused than the PS4. You may think that the Kinect — a hands-free control device for the console — would be the perfect way to navigate porn, but the device does not recognize porn sites. It’s also worth noting that the Kinect is a camera and microphone, and people likely don’t feel comfortable watching pornography in front of such a device.The top ten porn movies and categories viewed on either console are similar to one another, so at least in the ever-burning console war, both armies have common ground.last_img read more

5 Reasons to be Excited for Horizon Zero Dawn

first_imgStay on target The beginning of the year has been great for PlayStation 4 owners. In the last few weeks, they have been treated to such games as Gravity Rush 2, Yakuza 0, and Nioh. This would be enough to keep PS4 owners happy, but they’re about to get one of the biggest games of Q1 tomorrow. That’s right; I’m talking about none other than Guerrilla Games’ Horizon Zero Dawn.Unlike a lot of other recent AAA titles, Horizon Zero Dawn fully delivers on nearly all fronts. It is a sprawling open world game with beautifully rendered graphics and tight, intuitive gameplay mechanics. It is arguably the first truly “must own” exclusive of this generation. The hype surrounding this title is very much real.There are a lot of reasons to be excited for Horizon Zero Dawn. Below are the top five.Stunning graphicsHorizon Zero Dawn features the best looking graphics on a console to date. This game takes full advantage of the PlayStation 4 Pro’s extra horsepower. Thanks to checkerboard rendering, it looks exceptional on 4K HDR-enabled televisions. Folks who play on a standard 1080p TV will also benefit from supersampled textures.I’ve put many hours into this game. In that time, I have never seen any questionable looking textures or graphical anomalies. Every part of the world is rendered in exceptional detail. Even random NPC characters and building interiors look great. Graphically speaking, Horizon Zero Dawn has no equal on consoles.Massive open world to exploreOpen world games are standard these days. Normally, this wouldn’t be a selling point. However, Horizon’s rich and varied world is in a class of its own. A lot of this has to do with the aforementioned graphics. These gorgeous locales aren’t just for show, however. Secrets can be found on every mountain top, sandy desert, overgrown forest, and human settlement.Unlike many other open world games, exploration isn’t a mundane affair here. The game has a great deal of fast travel points. However, you will find that taking the scenic route is always more satisfying. After all, you want to see what awaits in each area. Most of the time, hoofing it on foot or riding a robot leads to unexpected but delightful situations. There is always something interesting to discover.An enthralling and engaging storyLike open-world titles, post-apocalyptic settings have also become ubiquitous. Horizon, however, has a unique take on this worn out genre. Like the gameplay, it combines various genres into something wholly original. Despite the prehistoric-like setting, Horizon is, at its core, a science fiction story. And though it isn’t upfront about it, there is also a strong underlying message about human hubris destroying the planet.Most video game stories aren’t told as elegantly as those from traditional media. Horizon manages to not only have a great story but one that is masterfully told. The story unfolds at just the right pace. Each new revelation is accompanied by a new and enticing mystery. Thankfully, none of this feels forced or awkward. By the end, most of the story’s questions have been fully and satisfyingly answered.Meaningful side questsEvery open world game has random side quests to complete. Most of the time, these missions feel like filler that inflates a game’s play time. Horizon has its fair share of side quests as well. Thankfully, most are meaningful and add depth to the game. With very few exceptions, each side quest introduces you to an interesting new character. Many quests involve finding objects or killing machines and people. However, they don’t feel like a waste of time. There is always a fascinating story behind each mission.Action junkies will no doubt get a kick out of the hunter’s lodge side quests. These missions will require players to use all of their cunning and reflexes to survive. Combat is one of the game’s strongest attributes (as I’ll explain below), and the hunter’s lodge quests force players to use everything they’ve learned to take down the nastiest of robots.Robot fightsAs I mentioned above, hunting and fighting giant robots is the single best feature of Horizon Zero Dawn. While battling humans can get downright tedious, going up against crazed machines never gets old. There is a lot of animal-like automatons in the world, and each has to be taken down in specific ways. Figuring out a robot’s weakness is a game unto itself. Feeling a giant mechanical beast is one of the most thrilling experiences you’ll ever have.To successfully take down a robot, you have to use every weapon at your disposal. This includes arrows, traps, and bombs. Each of these come in different varieties. For example, fire arrows are sometimes more effective than standard ones. Ice bombs work great against fire-spewing machines, and electric traps stop most robots in their tracks. Tying robots down with rope is also a great way to immobilize them. Few games have combat that is as thoroughly enjoyable as this. PlayStation 4 Becomes Fastest Console to Sell 100 Million‘Death Stranding’ Is Your PlayStation 4 Holiday Exclusive last_img read more

Loss of Snow Days May Create the Next Generation of Remote Workers

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 4 min read January 27, 2015 The idea that snow or extreme weather conditions no longer mean getting a day off from school may become a chilling reality for school-aged kids. Thanks to technology and some forward-thinking administrators, like those of St. Cloud Cathedral high school in Minnesota, kids can now work from home on snow days with no productivity lost. If this approach spreads to school districts nationwide, it will encourage the creation of a new generation of self-sufficient, flexible workers. This could lead to a completely different work culture for businesses over the long term.Thanks to the recent proliferation of publicly funded personal technology in schools, students now have the equipment necessary to learn remotely, turning off-days into productive learning days. This means laptops and iPads are provided to each individual student, as opposed to having to share computers in a classroom or lab environment.The concept of students’ borrowing personal laptops loaned by the school is similar to the bring your own device trend at companies: Employees have access to work on a device of choice, wherever, thanks to technology solutions and web-based apps.And employees need not be at their desks or in the office to be productive. The requirement of being in the same work environment every day to be productive could be entirely eliminated. I believe a new generation of employees will begin at a young age to adapt to remote working. It’s intriguing to imagine how future employees and company leaders, after growing up with the work-anywhere mentality, could change the landscape.Ideally, future employees will be prepared to work from home, travel with all the tools that help them work efficiently throughout the day and not blink an eye if their commute to the office is snarled by snow. They will just open up their laptop remotely, grab coffee and begin at the same time as they usually do at the office. Remote working is obviously not a new concept, but having employees who enter the workforce already trained to work from anywhere, anytime, only helps a business become more nimble. Unfortunately, far too many organizations lack a clear plan for enabling and managing remote workers. Or they don’t fully appreciate how having a flexible workforce fights lost productivity and revenue.Providing flexible workplace options can have benefits well beyond those of disaster planning including the following:Related: 5 Essential Keys to Leading a Remote WorkforceCost savings. The reduction in the cost of utilities and other operational expenses is significant. Employers can save upwards of $11,000 per employee annually if that person works at least half time outside the office, according to productivity. Although some jobs aren’t suited for remote work, productivity increases significantly in many other roles. Research from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that employees working outside the office usually end up laboring well beyond 40 hours a week.Recruiting talent. Being able to work remotely is an attractive benefit to prospective employees. Giving potential employees flexible options can be the difference in a candidate’s choosing one company over a competitor.Higher employee morale. Research has shown that employees with multiple work options are more satisfied with their jobs and likely to stay. So what can a company do right now to encourage this new way of thinking? Here are some options:Related: 3 Qualities Every Remote Manager Needs (Infographic)Management buy-in. Company leaders should be open about supporting or encouraging working remotely and clear about expectations and when these practices are considered acceptable.Mobility. Whether it’s providing laptops or tablets or developing solid bring your own device policies, companies can deploy mobile devices to unchain employees from their desks. Modern tools and apps can provide remote workers the same communications experience as in the office.Cloud-based unified communications. Implement unified communications systems, which extend beyond traditional phone systems and provide tools to keep employees connected to one another and customers through video, chat and other collaboration options. Cloud-based unified communications ensures that if a building is inaccessible, remote employees can continue working normally.Remote-access network tools. VPN and other remote networking tools can provide the access and security necessary.Communicate the plan. Companies may have some advance warning of a business disruption from flooding, a storm, a tornado or hurricane. If such instances are the only time the company permits working remotely, then communicate expectations and review policies and procedures ahead of the threat. Related: 6 Best Practices for Working from Home Register Now »last_img read more
