DeafVibe prepares 2014 national tour

first_imgVancouver is also home to the Washington School for the Deaf, 611 Grand Blvd., which was first founded as the “Washington School for Defective Youth” in 1886. Its stated mission is to ensure “all deaf and hard of hearing students in Washington reach their full potential.”At first DeafVibe was a part of a for-profit company, setting up students and colleges with sign language interpreters for a charge, but the business was soon divided in two. However, both parts — nonprofit educational guidance and for-profit interpreting — are still tied together. National Vocational Interpreting (NVI) subsidizes DeafVibe with thousands of dollars a month. In turn, the nonprofit offers, but doesn’t require, the services of NVI to private colleges and students in need of interpreters.Brian Bearden remains chief executive officer of NVI but has been shifting his time more toward DeafVibe, of which he is the executive director. He hasn’t made a salary from DeafVibe yet and said he no longer handles most day-to-day operations of the for-profit business. He’s wary of any implications that DeafVibe is persuading its clients to hire NVI interpreters in lieu of others. Half of DeafVibe’s current crop of students use NVI interpreters, he said.“At the end of the day if they don’t use our interpreters, that’s fine,” Bearden said.— Stover Harger IIISucceeding in college can be tricky, even without the ongoing struggle to communicate in a world without sound. That’s why the DeafVibe Foundation wants to lend a hand.The Vancouver-based advocacy organization, which helps guide deaf and hard-of-hearing people from all over the country while they are training in vocational schools, is preparing to take an RV on the road for its second national tour, starting in March.last_img read more

Intel to invest Rs 1100 crore in India

It will also have a computer software development and hardware design services facility.The fresh investment is in addition to $2 billion the chip maker had invested in the country till 2016.The company’s Indian subsidiary has about 7,000 techies to design and power semiconductor chips for its global customers, including original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of computers, smart phones and other electronic devices.Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and IT Minister Priyank Kharge were also present on the occasion.The state high-level clearance committee, headed by the Chief Minister, cleared the company’s investment proposal on February 1, 2016 and the Karnataka Industrial Development Board allocated it the land in the city’s south-east suburb.The company’s India operations focus on R&D, hardware design, testing and validation of computer hardware and software products for the next-generation digital devices.The Intel India arm is registered with the state-run Software Technology Park India (STPI) under the 100 per cent export oriented unit scheme of the government.last_img read more

Beto ORourke Draws Crowds In Some Conservative Enclaves In Bid Against Ted

first_imgAbby Livingston/The Texas TribuneU.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso, speaks at an event for his U.S. Senate campaign in Roanoke, Texas on Feb. 24, 2018.There was a frantic energy in the air Saturday morning amid a downpour of chilly rain as cars circled the sprawling John M. Tidwell Middle School parking lot, in search of spaces. But the candidate was about to speak, so a number of cars gave up.Crying uncle here, however, didn’t mean leaving. Instead, they haphazardly parked in fire lanes and were out of their vehicles practically before the engines stopped running.It’s the type of scene that plays out every four years in states such as Iowa and New Hampshire: Curious voters cram into gyms and cafeterias and warehouses to see the latest buzzed-about candidate who’s come to town.Except this wasn’t an early voting state, and this was not a candidate for president.Instead, hundreds of Texans turned out on Saturday to hear U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, a Democrat from far away El Paso, make his case for the U.S. Senate. This has been happening around the state but O’Rourke assured these Texans that they were special in his path to victory against Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz.“If there is one county that is the linchpin of the 254 [counties] that will determine the outcome of this election, it is Tarrant County,” O’Rourke said.So why Tarrant County, of all places?This section of the sprawling, multi-county Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan region is the largest county in Texas that voted for Donald Trump in 2016.While Republicans have fled some of the state’s other large urban counties in droves for surrounding suburbs, in Tarrant, many of those conservative voters moved to suburbs within the county, keeping it a GOP stronghold for years. And the strongest Tea Party bastion of all is Tarrant’s northeast corner.The county seat is Fort Worth, a large U.S. city in its own right that is often begrudgingly overshadowed by next-door neighbor Dallas. Some Fort Worth neighborhoods have been known to produce highly-organized voter turnout, particularly the liberal east side, which constitutes Democratic U.S. Rep. Marc Veasey‘s base.But on Saturday, O’Rourke campaigned in the suburbs of Bedford and Roanoke. This area is home to the NE Tarrant Tea Party, one of the most potently effective and organized Tea Party groups in the state. Later in the day, he hosted an event on the southern edge of the county in Burleson, another community where conservatism runs deep.Former state Sen. Wendy Davis, a Democrat, grew up in northeast Tarrant County and suggested moments like O’Rourke’s success in the area demonstrates “the long-term fracture in the Republican Party.”“We have traditional, business-minded Republicans who support the idea of investing in public education and respecting the ability of everyone to realize their full potential in conflict with Tea Party Republicans who stand for very different ideals,” she said.In Roanoke, O’Rourke criticized the recent GOP tax law and advocated for making changes to the campaign finance system and boosting education funding. But he also spoke heavily about gun control and immigration — issues that might cause cringing among down-ballot Democratic candidates who want to focus on job creation.He only passingly mentioned Cruz.“The fact that we don’t even need to mention the name of our opponent — because that’s not what it’s about,” he said.Earlier that morning, O’Rourke campaigned at a Mexican restaurant in a Bedford strip mall. Again, the rain poured, and again, curious Texans spilled out into the patio and stood under awnings.Susan Harper, a local teacher, suggested that is why she braved the rain. Ten or so years ago, she said, Democrats were so scarce in her precinct that she was among 12 to vote in her party’s primary on that day.Now, she said, she knows there are likeminded people in her conservative community.“I found my tribe,” she said.Obama’s strategyConsciously or not, O’Rourke is following then-U.S. Sen. Barack Obama‘s Iowa strategy in 2007 of campaigning hard in conservative areas with an aim to lose less badly there and make up the difference in urban areas.There is scant reliable, public polling on this race, so the best indicators of where it stands are anecdotal evidence like crowd sizes. If a candidate drew these kinds of crowds in smaller states, alarm bells would ring.But Texas is massive in population and in geography, and it is an open question whether this strategy will work.O’Rourke is rapidly narrowing the gap in fundraising against Cruz – a sign of strength and enthusiasm. But Cruz could draw tens of millions of dollars in support from super PACs, and if control of the closely divided Senate were to boil down to Texas, the amount of money outside GOP groups might spend to hold on to the state could prove record-setting.At the same time, Senate Democrats must defend 10 incumbents in states that Trump won, as well as in Minnesota, which he nearly carried.The national parties typically protect incumbents ahead of fueling challengers, suggesting Democrats will spend on protecting seats in Nevada and Arizona before they take a bite out of the many expensive media markets in Texas.U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado, who oversees the Senate GOP campaign arm, brushed off any concerns about Texas in jeopardy.“I think Ted Cruz is an exceptional candidate and has been an exceptional leader for Texas,” he told the Tribune in late January. “He’s done all the right things, he’ll continue to be a strong voice.”Texas hasn’t elected a Democrat to statewide office since 1994. Gardner suggested that if Texas could flip, then the entire political map would have been upended.“If people are worried that Texas is in play, then I guess California is our next victim when it comes to Senate races, too.”Cruz’s own consultant, Chris Wilson, tweeted a link to an El Paso Times articlethat reported 500 people turned out to Cruz’s own event over the weekend in El Paso — O’Rourke’s own hometown. Tweaking reporters in Tarrant County, he wrote, “OMG it’s a wave!”But other Republicans are more outwardly cautious — including Cruz.“In Texas, there’s nothing Democrats would like more than to turn Texas blue,” Cruz said at that event, the Times reported. “The men and women in this room are on the frontlines of the battleground to make sure that doesn’t happen. If we know the hard left is going to show up in big, big numbers, then our job is clear: We got to make sure conservatives show up in big, big numbers to keep Texas red.”Julie McCarty, president of the NE Tarrant Tea Party, said she expects Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick in particular to bring long coattails to her area. But she is not rolling her eyes at the possibility of a future Democratic surge.“The numbers right now don’t worry me,” she wrote to the Tribune in an email. “Patrick will win handily. But it would be foolish to ignore the momentum. If they can maintain it, they will eventually start making progress.”Back at the Mexican restaurant in Bedford, many of the attendees said the O’Rourke event and the recent proliferation of anti-Trump local organizations has made them realize they are not the only Democrats in their neighborhoods.But what if Gardner and the other Republicans are right — that all of this excitement and effort is for naught, that Cruz’s re-election bid is safe, as all statewide Republican candidates have been for over 20 years? “I’m awake,” said Harper, the Democratic teacher. “I’m not going back to sleep.” Sharelast_img read more

Dogs Definitely Get Tired of Their Toys and Heres Why

first_img If you’re wondering why your pup is suddenly showing a lot less interest in his favorite stuffed animal all of a sudden, don’t worry. It’s not because he’s sick, or even upset. It could be that he’s just bored. Weirdly enough, there’s a scientific explanation for all of it.Researchers have been hard at work looking into it, in fact, and have discovered that many dogs actually have a preference for new things or novelty. It’s called neophilia.Neophilia explains why your dog tends to get so excited when presented with a new toy he hasn’t seen before and starts snubbing the old collection. It all stems from a study back in 2008 where researchers from the University of Giessen in Germany and the University of Lincoln in the U.K. played with 17 dogs with two different toys. After playing with each dog with both toys, the dogs were shown a lineup of three different toys apiece: the two they had seen before and a brand new one. The dogs went straight for the new toy in a whopping 38 out of 50 toys, and the study’s results were published in the scientific journal Animal Cognition.AdChoices广告A similar study at the University of Bristol Anthrozoology Institute and the Waltham Center for Pet Nutrition yielded results that mirrored the earlier studies. This one was conducted with 16 adult Labrador Retrievers who were each given a special toy for 30 seconds. This was repeated several times until the dogs clearly seemed bored with the toys. The dogs ended up losing interest in the toys after five 30-second periods of being given the toy.Essentially, this reinforces the idea that dogs simply get bored and are attracted to newness and unfamiliar territory. It also turned out that as a result of the surveys we could draw conclusions about what kinds of toys the dogs preferred, such as those that taste like food, the ones that you can tear apart. That’s great news for you if you like cleaning up torn-apart toys all over your floor.It doesn’t sound exactly like rocket science, and we could all pretty much surmise this was the case, but if your dog is showing signs of boredom with his toys you can try to rotate them out, play with the dog in different ways with the toy, or even change the way they smell. Most importantly, make sure your dog remains engaged. That’s a lot more fun, anyway than watching him ignore his favorite toy.

Razers Cryptocurrency Loyalty Program Sounds Completely Legit

first_img Finally, Razer Is Making a Gamer ToasterGeek Pick: Razer Blade Stealth Is an Ultraportable Dream Gaming PC Stay on target We’ve written a lot of positive thoughts about Razer over the years, mostly because they manufacture a lot of quality products. From high-end keyboards and mice and headphones to gaming laptops and cell phones, there are real reasons for gamers to be loyal to that glowing green snake. But now Razer is counting on that gamer loyalty for something that honestly sounds a lot more sketchy. Razer wants you to use those beefy PCs they sell you to mine cryptocurrency you don’t even get to keep.The program is called Razer SoftMiner and if you’re familiar with how cryptocurrency generally works it shouldn’t sound too different. Download the program onto your computer, preferably one with powerful graphics cards like the recommended Nvidia GTX 1050 or AMD RX 460. And leave it idle as it churns ungodly amounts of energy using math to create fake money like the ether token of Ethereum blockchain and others. You can even earn while playing games through Razer’s Cortex desktop app.Where Razer SoftMiner differs however is that once the crypto is mined, you don’t get to keep it. Instead, it’s sent to a separate gaming-centric cryptocurrency service called GammaNow so Razer doesn’t deal with the messy management. In exchange, mules like you and me get a different currency, Silver, to score sweet discounts on products from Razer and partners. You can mine an estimated 500 Silver per day. The Razer store offers Shadow of the Tomb Raider on Steam for 98,000 Silver. 196 days of electricity-draining, GPU-straining crypto mining for a $60 game that’ll surely be on sale soon? Sure doesn’t sound like a pyramid scheme to me!Razer SoftMiner is still in beta, so hopefully there’s still time for the whole thing to fall apart when someone looks at it too closely. If you’re going to mine cryptocurrency, at least have the self-respect to keep yourself.

The FCC also gave wireless carriers more flexibility to block spam texts.Chairman Ajit Pai last month even called on carriers to implement better caller ID authentication systems.But that’s not enough for John Oliver.The comedian took on the FCC and robocalls in his latest episode of HBO’s Last Week Tonight, calling out Pai’s half-baked efforts to implement call authentication programs.“Instead, what’s he’s done is ‘urged’ [telecoms] to do it,” Oliver said, using air quotes for emphasis. “And while some say that they are ‘working on it,’ the fact is, if he had ‘required’ them to do it from the get-go, we might actually have those fixes by now.”The late-night host previously tussled with the Federal Communications Commission in 2014, when he urged Internet trolls to put their talents to use by inundating the agency with net neutrality comments.Within 48 hours, the FCC twice tweeted about technical difficulties with its online comment system “due to heavy traffic.”This time, Oliver is sending his own message.“Yes, FCC, we meet again, old friends,” he said, standing next to a giant finger hovering above a huge red button, which allegedly activates a system to robocall all five commissioners every 90 minutes.“Except this time, unlike our past encounters, I don’t actually need to ask hoards of real people to bombard you with messages,” he boasted. “Because, with the miracle of robocalling, I can now do it all by myself.”The Federal Communications Commission did not immediately respond to Geek’s request for comment.More on Geek.com:Prevent Scammers From Robocalling You With Call ControlVerizon Will Offer Free Anti-Robocall Tools to All CustomersTime Warner Cable Robocalled a Woman 153 Times, Now They Owe Her $229,500 Stay on targetlast_img read more

North studying import of electricity from Turkey

first_imgThe Turkish Cypriot administration is still considering bringing electricity from Turkey via undersea cables, it was reported on Thursday.According to Turkish Cypriot daily Havadis, ‘minister’ of economy and energy, Ozdil Nami, said that his ‘ministry’ is continuing to assess electricity for the coming years and monitor production capacity in the north.He said that they are carrying out studies together with experts on other alternatives but these also include bringing electricity via cables from Turkey, adding that they are making the necessary contacts on this subject.Nami said, however, that the main aim is to provide cheap, affordable and clean electricity.Current power production is enough to meet consumption, he said, but in the coming months they will make openings to encourage solar energy use.Nami said he supported this move as long as it did not bring an additional cost to consumers.Referring to the privatisation of ‘KIB-TEK’ energy supplier, Nami said that it was not on the agenda.You May LikeMyBestDeals.netDon’t Buy a Smart TV Before Reading ThisMyBestDeals.netUndoSivanguardiaYou’ll be surprised by food for anti-inflammatory dietsSivanguardiaUndoList Nebula8 Cutest Exotic Dog Breeds From Around The WorldList NebulaUndo Morphou bishop now claims gay men have a ‘nasty smell’UndoGreece to overturn law that made universities no-go zone for policeUndoProperty owners price themselves out of the marketUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Cypriots back supporting refugees but not giving citizenship

first_imgThe majority of Greek and Turkish Cypriots are in favour of supporting refugees in Cyprus but are reluctant when it comes to granting Cypriot citizenship to those who have been on the island for more than five years, an opinion poll by the University of Cyprus Center for Field Studies (UCFS) showed on Friday.Presenting the findings commissioned by the UNHCR in Cyprus, Associate Professor of Social and Developmental Psychology at UCY Dr Harris Psaltis said both Cypriot communities recognise that refugees require support and that the provision of support should be part of the responsibilities of the state.Even though the wider public’s general feelings towards refugees, migrants and the phenomenon of migration in general, are today neutral to negative, compared to 2015, there is a significant improvement of attitudes in both communities, Psaltis said.Though both communities shared the perception of migrants as being poor people who came to Cyprus in search of a better life, the survey showed that the terms ‘refugee’ and ‘migrant’ are perceived differently in the Greek Cypriot community than in the Turkish Cypriot community.Among Greek Cypriots, there is a sub-category in the category of migrants, consisting of wealthy individuals from Russia and China, who are not considered as migrants as their affluence does not match with the dominant stereotype of a migrant.Among Turkish Cypriots, the two terms are better differentiated, with the term ‘migrant’ being used to refer mainly to individuals who came to island from Turkey after 1974 and to the Turkish Cypriots who fled from the Republic, while refugees are mostly associated with Syrian refugees.Another key finding was that in both communities the levels of meaningful contacts between the local population and refugees and/or migrants have increased, compared to the 2015 survey and results.Mirroring the results of 2015, both communities favoured the notion of refugees living integrated into society rather than remaining secluded in camps. Both communities, however, expressed the desire for a cap on the number of refugees that the island will welcome.While the percentage of Greek Cypriots who oppose the idea of granting citizenship to refugees on the island for more than five years fell to 50.8 per cent, Turkish Cypriots opposing the idea remained unchanged compared to 2015 at 67.8 per cent.Both communities have concerns regarding migration, the survey showed, which centre around worries over the effect on economic development and an increase in crime rates.The survey showed that these concerns are especially dominant among the Turkish Cypriots, who believe that incoming refugees and migrants do not contribute to peace and safety, but rather bring heightened concerns and needs for measures.The size of the island also forms a source of concern among both communities regarding the number of refugees and migrants it can accommodate.A total of 1,408 persons participated in the survey, of which 701 were Greek Cypriots and 707 were Turkish Cypriots.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
