first_img0Shares0000Jack Wilshere celebrates during Arsenal’s victory over Chelsea. Photo/COURTESYLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 22 – Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is eager to tie down midfielder Jack Wilshere to a new contract, after drawn out negotiations.The 26-year-old has endured a difficult period over the last few years due to being plagued by injuries, but appears to have rediscovered his best form this season. Wilshere was eased back into the Gunners’ team in the first half of the current campaign and has established himself as a regular starter since mid-December, starting nine out of 11 Premier League games.However, the Englishman’s current contract is due to expire at the end of the season and Wenger is hoping to reach an agreement with Wilshere sooner rather than later.“That decision doesn’t depend only on me,” said Wenger, according to Goal.“I want him to sign very quickly.“We are still to make the decision and find the pen somewhere. I’m happy to give him one.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_img(Visited 466 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Another delicate balance making Earth habitable has been identified: the carbon cycle.It’s the “Goldilocks principle” again.  Too much or too little would not be just right, but deadly.  According to Science Daily, USC scientists found Earth sits in another sweet spot:Scientists have shown how geologic process regulates the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Researchers have documented evidence suggesting that part of the reason that Earth has become neither sweltering like Venus nor frigid like Mars lies with a built-in atmospheric carbon dioxide regulator — the geologic cycles that churn up the planet’s rocky surface.Geologic processes like plate tectonics are oblivious to concerns about balance in the atmosphere or habitable temperatures.  This means that independent factors conspire to keep the Earth in the Goldilocks zone.Scientists have long known that “fresh” rock pushed to the surface via mountain formation effectively acts as a kind of sponge, soaking up the greenhouse gas CO2. Left unchecked, however, that process would simply deplete atmospheric CO2 levels to a point that would plunge Earth into an eternal winter within a few million years during the formation of large mountain ranges like the Himalayas — which has clearly not happened.And while volcanoes have long been pointed to as a source of carbon dioxide, alone they cannot balance out the excess uptake of carbon dioxide by large mountain ranges. Instead, it turns out that “fresh” rock exposed by uplift also emits carbon through a chemical weathering process, which replenishes the atmospheric carbon dioxide at a comparable rate.Mark Torres of USC realizes that our presence on Earth is dependent on this finely-balanced carbon cycle.  “The Earth is a bit like a big, natural recycler,” his co-author said.  In addition to the carbon cycle, Earth enjoys a nitrogen cycle, oxygen cycle, and water cycle.  Atmospheric winds and ocean currents also cycle about with some predictability as Earth cycles through its rotation and orbit.You don’t need the millions of years to recognize the present balance in the carbon cycle.  It’s just one of at least 20 factors listed in the documentary The Privileged Planet that point to intelligent design of our home, where we can live, breathe, and conduct scientific research.  For more on habitable zones and Goldilocks parameters, see 9/19/13 and list in the 9/08/12 commentary.last_img read more

first_img24 July 2013 President Jacob Zuma has conveyed his condolences to the family of South Africa’s former Chief Justice, Pius Langa, who passed away at a Johannesburg hospital on Wednesday morning. Langa, 74, had been in hospital for about a month following a long illness. Zuma said that South Africa had lost one of its best legal minds, a dedicated human rights jurist and a veteran struggle activist. “On behalf of government and the people of South Africa, we wish to convey our deepest condolences. May his soul rest in peace,” Zuma said. Langa was appointed as one of 11 judges to the newly established Constitutional Court of South Africa at the advent of the country’s democracy in 1994. He became its deputy president in August 1997 and in November 2001 assumed the position of Deputy Chief Justice of South Africa. He was appointed as the country’s Chief Justice, the chairperson of the Judicial Service Commission and the head of the Constitutional Court in June 2005 and held these positions until his retirement in October 2009. On retirement, Langa became chairperson of the Press Freedom Commission, which seeks to advance excellence in the professional and ethical conduct of journalists and media houses. Source: read more

first_imgThe Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Two months after announcing that the startup managed to turn a profit in 2009, Twitter has announced that it will be hiring Pixar finance head Ali Rowghani as its chief financial officer.Twitter’s CEO Evan Williams told Reuters today that the new hire represents the company’s direction toward “creating value for our users and capturing the financial opportunities that result from it.” Rowghani will join Twitter officially in March.Last year, Twitter’s search deals with Google and Microsoft made the company around $25 million – about $15 million from Google and $10 million from Microsoft. These two deals were enough to make the company profitable last year. For a fairly young company that offers a simple, free web application for end users, this is quite a feat.Other revenue channels include creating a revenue-sharing scheme that would let Twitter share the profits generated by third-party applications. The details of this plan are still under wraps, but Twitter’s platform director Ryan Sarver announced at LeWeb that the company would announce details about this plan early in 2010.Other possible sources of revenue are multi-user accounts, which Twitter has been testing internally.Twitter has also recently made another high-profile hire, calling onCurrent TV‘s Robin Sloan to work on media partnerships, covering “everything at the intersection of Twitter and media, from live events on TV to citizen journalism on the web.”We’re excited to see how the startup that’s managed to become a cultural zeitgeist within a few short years will continue to grow and profit. Particularly in its early days, many who lived through the dotcom crash were skeptical about the monetization potential of a free web service. Without incorporating advertising – something that no users wanted to see – Twitter has managed to create a sustainable business.We can’t wait to see what ideas Rowghani will bring to the table. jolie odell Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Tags:#twitter#web center_img Related Posts Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditlast_img read more

first_imgIf you have already implemented the Instapaper API in your app, you don’t need to change anything.If you’re writing support for Instapaper, and all you need to do is add pages to someone’s Instapaper account, they don’t need to be a Subscriber and you can use the Simple API.If your app needs to read data from an Instapaper account, it must use the new Full API, and its customers need to be Subscribers.It seems like developers who want to can still scrape Instapaper, but I for one will seek out a third-party Android app that uses the official API.

The documentation is here. Up until now, developers have been able to add articles to a users Instapaper account using the API, but haven’t been able to give uses access to their articles. According to Instapaper creator Marco Arment, third party applications that allow users to read articles actually scrape Instapaper site for content. Developers will now be able to pull down articles from the API, but there is a catch.Arment writes that he was reluctant to make a full API available because he was worried about competing apps driving Instapaper out of business. The cost of maintaining Instapaper is non-trivial, and it makes the majority of its money from its iOS application. Instapaper doesn’t have venture backing to support the costs associated with an free API, so the company needs to remain cash flow positive. To make a full API available, Arment has come up with a compromise: any developer can use the API to build a fully featured Instapaper app, but the app will only work for customers that pay $1 for an Instapaper subscription.
