Gunmen kill 10 villagers in Nigeria officials

first_img.Gunmen have killed 10 people in attacks on two Christian-dominated villages in the northern Nigerian state of Kaduna, a hotbed of ethnic and religous strife, officials said Tuesday.On Christmas Eve, six people were killed when gunmen suspected to be ethnic Fulani Muslims stormed Ungwan Mailafiya, they said.The killings followed an attack in nearby Nindem late Friday where gunmen opened fire on a congregation, killing four and injuring 10, said a local lawmaker.”While we were mourning the deaths at Nindem … the security personnel received distress calls of another attack at Ungwan Mailafiya”, parliamentarian Shehu Nicholas Garba said in a statement.”By daybreak on Christmas, six persons had been confirmed killed, including a child of about six years old, and many others injured,” he said.A spokesman from the state government said troops had been deployed to prevent further violence.Southern Kaduna has for three decades been locked in tit-for-tat killings between indigenous Christian farming communities and Muslim Hausa and Fulani settlers.The dispute was originally over land and grazing rights but has lately degenerated into ethnic and religious conflicts, leaving hundreds dead.last_img read more

Pale Moon 280 Major Update released

first_imgPale Moon 28.0 Major Update released by Martin Brinkmann on August 16, 2018 in Internet – 104 commentsPale Moon 28.0.0 is the first version of version 28.x and as such a major upgrade from the previously used version 27.x which the team released in 2016.The new release is special for a number of reasons, one being that it is based on the Unified XUL Platform, a forked and modified version of the Mozilla Code Repository.It was not clear back in 2017 when the forking happened if Pale Moon would use the Unified XUL Platform or what the release would mean for the Basilisk Browser which the Pale Moon team released in 2017 as well as it used the Unified XUL Platform as well.As far as getting the new version is concerned. You can select Pale Moon > Help > About Pale Moon and click on “Check for Updates” to run a manual check in the browser. The new version should get picked up automatically so that Pale Moon is updated to it automatically. Downloads are also available on the official site for users who prefer it that way.Pale Moon 28.0Pale Moon 28.0 offers major under the hood improvements thanks to its new base:Significant JavaScript engine improvements such as support for “all landmark features from the ECMAScript standards” which should reduce JavaScript related rendering issues significantly.Update to the rendering and layout engine Goanna.Enhancements to the Document Object Model (DOM) with updated APIs.WebGL2 Support.Media enhancements, e.g. playback of FLAC audio or MSE media streaming.Refreshed Developer Tools.Probably more interesting to existing users of Pale Moon is whether the Pale Moon development team kept its promises in regards to support for features that Mozilla dropped in Firefox.Pale Moon 28.0 continues to support NPAPI plugins, complete themes and other interface customizations, classic XUL, bootstrapped and Jetpack extensions (legacy add-ons), and does not include DRM in the browser.Pale Moon 28 supports Windows 7 or newer versions on the Windows platform only officially. The new Pale Moon version should run on Windows Vista as well (but not on Windows XP) but the operating system is not supported officially anymore.The team’s primarily goal was to migrate Pale Moon to the new platform. Pale Moon 28.0 should work just like previous versions for the most part but there will be some changes, for instance to extensions support as some extensions may need modifications to work properly in the new version of the browser.Closing WordsPale Moon is one of the few browsers that still supports browser plugins. If you need to run Java in the browser, Pale Moon is one of the few options that you have to do so as major browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, or Microsoft Edge don’t support these plugins anymore.Pale Moon should work with many of the classic Firefox extensions as well. Some may not work properly on the other hand as the two platforms are not identical.Pale Moon is not my main browser but a quick test run showed that it worked fine on the sites that I tried it on. It would be great if existing Pale Moon users would share their experience in the comment section below.Generally speaking, Pale Moon users should experience fewer compatibility issues while using the new version of the browser. There may be regressions, however, but the team hopes to address those in future releases.Now You: What is your take on Pale Moon 28.0?SummaryArticle NamePale Moon 28.0 Major Update releasedDescriptionPale Moon 28.0.0 is the first version of version 28.x and as such a major upgrade from the previously used version 27.x which the team released in 2016.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

March 31 2008 Soleri Studios Scottsdale aka C

first_imgMarch 31, 2008 Soleri Studios Scottsdale, aka Cosanti, has been buzzing with spring activity. On Saturday, March 29, it was the site of “The Desert Environment and Urban Sprawl”, a panel discussion with Paolo Soleri, Arizona photographer The event was organized by alumnus Alex Barragan [right photo]. Opening and closing the event was music by Dennis Yee on cello, accompanied by Pinna Joseph [left photo]. Ms. Joseph is the owner of the event’s co-sponsor, Tempe’s “Changing Hands” bookstore. [Photos: tt & text: Amber Klatt] The gentlemen, moderated by local architect Vern Swaback, spoke about the necessary ecological considerations that must be part of current city planning. Instigated by a particularly engaged audience, the artists returned to the topic of a light rail system. And, at the reminding of Arcosanti Site Coordinator Mary Hoadley, there was mention of Soleri’s concept of the Lean Linear City, in which city limits would stream alongside a transportation route. Thank you to everyone who was part of this successful afternoon. We look forward to seeing you at Sundays with Soleri, an afternoon discussion with Paolo Soleri occurring Sundays at 3pm at Cosanti.

Liberty Global is planning to bid for UK cable ope

first_imgLiberty Global is planning to bid for UK cable operator Virgin Media, with a move expected in the coming days, according to the UK’s Financial Times newspaper, citing sources familiar with the situation.In a brief statement, Virgin Media confirmed that the pair had been in talks. “Virgin Media confirms that it is in discussions with Liberty Global, Inc., a leading international cable company, concerning a possible transaction. Any such transaction would be subject to regulatory and other conditions. A further announcement will be made in due course,” the company said.Shares in Virgin Media on the NASDAQ exchange closed at US$38.69 (€44.74) yesterday, giving Virgin Media a valuation of US$10.4 billion. The company has an estimated enterprise value of US$20 billion including debt. Liberty Global reported cash reserves of US$3.3 billion in its third quarter earnings, with some of that earmarked for the company’s buyback programme.A successful bid for the UK’s sole large-scale cable provider would put Liberty Global chairman John Malone in direct competition with his old rival Rupert Murdoch, chairman of BSkyB’s main shareholder News Corp.In the UK, Malone has previously attempted unsuccessfully to bid for NTL, and also acquired a significant stake in Telewest, the two companies that later merged to form Virgin Media.There was some speculation in 2011 that he would make a bid for BSkyB in the wake of the collapse of News Corp’s move to take control of the company, but Malone quashed this, saying he would not bid against Murdoch.last_img read more
