He said the fire appears to have started when something was being cooked. A fire broke out today in a four-story apartment building in the Little Armenia section of Los Angeles, displacing a family and leaving at least one person hospitalized with smoke inhalation, authorities said. The fire at 5426 Sierra Vista Avenue near Western Avenue broke out at 12:22 a.m., said a Los Angeles City Fire Department captain, adding that the blaze was knocked down at 12:46 a.m. and no firefighter was hurt. Another senior firefighter, a battalion chief, told an On Scene Video camera crew at the fire site that firefighters arrived to find a room in a first-floor unit ablaze and three people — two adults and a child — suffering from smoke inhalation. One person was taken to a hospital, he said. The fire was contained to that apartment, whose occupants were displaced, but firefighters used a ladder to rescue at least one person from the second story, the battalion chief said.
Aston Villa boss Remi Garde has warned his squad they have no chance of beating Liverpool unless they raise their game.Villa host the Reds on Sunday buoyed by last weekend’s 2-0 win over Norwich – just their third Barclays Premier League victory of the season.They head into the weekend having lost only twice in their last seven matches in all competitions but still eight points from safety, and with Garde acknowledging improvements must be made against Jurgen Klopp’s side. “If we are playing the same game against Liverpool (as against Norwich), we will have no chance to have points,” he said.“Against Norwich we deserved the win but in the second half they created many opportunities and if we were unlucky we would have drawn the game.“My job is to say ‘well done lads for the victory and three points but the football we played won’t be enough to take points from the Liverpool game’.“When you get three points it’s very important. We don’t have to waste too much time or energy on winning and everything is okay.“We won the Norwich game but not in the best way we could have done it. I was not completely happy the game we played.” 1 Remi Garde
Cancer battler Majella O’Donnell has revealed she has undergone major surgery to have a double mastectomy but is feeling “great.”Majella lets her fans know that she is recovering and feeling great after her latest operation.Writing from her hospital bed, the wife of singer Daniel O’Donnell said she just needs plenty of rest now.She even took a picture of herself for her fans to see! Majella told fans on Daniel’s website website that it has been a difficult time with her sickness and the passing of her father.“Well, it’s been a very difficult 7 months between being diagnosed with cancer and my wonderful dad passing away very suddenly. As Daniel has already told you, I had a lumpectomy in July and started Chemotherapy in September.“I am now in hospital on day 5 after surgery for a double mastectomy with reconstruction. I feel great, thank God! It’s so good to be this far down the road and to know that all I have to do now is rest and heal,” she said.Majella captured the imagination of the public when she appeared on the Late Late Show to have her hair shaved off. In the process she managed to raise a remarkable €600,000 for the Irish Cancer Society.But brave Majella said she would not have been able to get through her ordeal without the support of the Irish public.She revealed she has received literally thousands of messages and cards on her road to recovery.“What I want to tell you all at this stage is how very grateful I am to every one of you for everything you have done for me over the last few months.“Please do not think that, because you haven’t heard from me, your kindness has gone unnoticed. All your prayers, good wishes, donations, gifts, mass cards, and sacred relics have been of great comfort to me. I consider myself very lucky to have so many people batting for me! “I can honestly say that I’m out the “other side” and in good health again. Please forgive me for not answering you all personally but it would have been impossible.“There have been 1,000′s of communications and every one was so sincerely appreciated and welcomed. I don’t want to go on about it too much but please know that I will never forget your kindness,” she said.MAJELLA HAS DOUBLE MASTECTOMY BUT SAYS SHE IS FEELING ‘GREAT’ was last modified: February 19th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:daniel o’donnelldouble masectomyMajella O’Donnell
Police have won all their last two league games (file photo)StarTimes Uganda Premier LeaguePolice FC vs Maroons FCStarTimes Stadium, Lugogo Sunday, 04-11-2018 @04:00pmLUGOGO – Police FC will be hoping to continue their fine run of form when they host Maroons at the StarTimes Stadium in Lugogo on Sunday afternoon.After a poor start to the league which saw them win none of their first four fixtures, Abdallah Mubiru’s side have now won all their last two.The Cops defeated Ndejje University 2-1 and then overcame Nyamityobora with the same scoreline in their last outing.Both of those victories came on the road and returning at home, the Cop’s will be anticipating their first points after losing the initial two fixtures at Lugogo.“We are very much aware of the situation as we are still without points at home, said Police FC coach Abdallah Mubiru ahead of the game.“It is not something that is a huge concern but also not a situation we want because after all, every team wants to win games at their home.“The game against Maroons will not be easy because they are a good side with a good coach.“Hopefully we can keep our momentum going and win our first game at home.Police who switched from Namboole to Lugogo at the start of the season were beaten by both Express and Bul in their first two games.The biggest positive for them is that they have been scoring goals since the start of the season, scoring in all of their fixtures including two goals in as many home matches.The game on Sunday looks easy for Police on paper as they come up against Maroons FC who along with SC Villa are the only sides yet to win a game this season.George ‘Best’ Nsimbe’s side have also lost a league high four games so far. The only game in which they got something from was the 1-1 draw at home to URA on match day four.Match Stats:This will be the eighth meeting between these two sides since 2011.In that period, only three victories have been registered by either sides (Police 2, Maroons 1).As Maroons try to find their first point this season, they have not defeated Police away from home since 2011, drawing all the four fixtures in that period.The reverse fixture ended 2-2 last season.The Cops head into the fixture having won only four of their last 12 league games (D1 L7).At home, Mubiru’s side have lost three of their past five league games (W1 D1).For Maroons, they are in sorry form of late having not tested victory in any of their last 15 league games (D8 L7). The last time the Prison side won a league fixtures was in March in the 2-1 victory away to Mbarara City.Away from home, they have not won any of their last seven (D4 L3). Their first two visits have all ended in defeat this season.Comments Tags: Maroons FCpolice fcStarTimes Uganda Premier Leaguetop

Fianna Fáil spokesperson on Agriculture Charlie McConalogue TD has said the Minister for Social Protection and her Department must review Farm Assist Scheme forms to ensure that farmers are not slowed down by red tape when applying for the payment.Deputy McConalogue commented, “My constituency office, and my colleagues in Fianna Fáil, are regularly meeting with members in the farming community who have been thrown by the farm assist payment forms.“These convoluted forms, with all the requirements within, are a yearly ordeal for farmers.” He added that the Farm Assist Scheme was established by Fianna Fáil to provide a valuable payment for low-income farmers.“While the last Fine Gael led government introduced drastic cuts to the scheme in 2012, Fianna Fáil have managed, under the Confidence and Supply arrangement, to reverse these cuts.“The Minister must instruct her Department to review this form to ensure the farm assist application is a swift and simple process for those in the farming community,” concluded Deputy McConalogue.Farm Assist application process should be simplified – McConalogue was last modified: April 9th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#cloud computing#Product Reviews#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Other updates in eyeos 2.0 include real-time notifications via a new instant messaging component, a re-written file system and kernel, a new sync tool for syncing files, contacts, and calendar from your local desktop to the web, and new base applications which function as real apps as opposed to demos of what eyeos can do. Why No Love for Webtops?The main difference between what Google plans to offer with Chrome OS and what eyeos and other “webtops” like it is that Chrome OS doesn’t live in a web browser, it makes the web browser the operating system. Even though Google’s browser will sit on a Linux kernel, this won’t be apparent to end users. The browser, for all intents and purposes, is the OS. And unlike eyeos, Google is making deals with netbook manufacturers to come preinstalled on their hardware. Eyeos, on the other hand, is still a destination you reach via URL (Well, for the most part.) Despite the revamp, new look, and new features of eyeos 2.0, end users probably won’t take note of this or any other webtop for that matter. As Ray Valdes, research director at Gartner Research, was quoted as saying a few months ago: “I have not seen growth or traction among the Webtop companies over the past year,” Valdes said. “From a long-term perspective, I don’t see any change to current market trends, which are that Webtop ventures are not gaining market traction.”But why are users so underwhelmed? For one thing, the web office components of any of these ventures are poor comparisons (if they exist at all) to what Google Docs provides. The poor webtops would be better off partnering with Zoho Docs instead, a feature-rich web office startup that could offer a real alternative to Google’s online office. Webtop Ghost tries to make this transition easier by linking to both Google Docs and Zoho as opposed to offering their own applications, but they’re more of an exception than a rule. Additionally, there’s more than a bit of hesitation among end users to make a full-on switch from a system they know – be that the OS on their local hard drive or Google’s cloud-based programs – to some young startup that may up-and-disappear at any time, like the better known You OS did only last summer. Finally, there are issues of lag time and speed. Web OS’s that try to simulate the local desktop experience simply can’t duplicate the feel of native applications. And when they try, they can often end up using a huge chunk of memory in the process.Eyeos: But Wait, We’re Not Just a Webtop, We’re Software Too!Although eyeos has to fight all the same issues facing webtops as described above, they have an identity issue too. It seems eyeos can’t decide if they want to be a traditional webtop accessible via the eyeos.info URL or open source software you can install on your own server. This latter solution is designed for users worried about the “privacy and confidentiality problems” that come from hosting your data on a “big company’s” server. While the host-your-own option will appeal to a handful of do-it-yourselfer geeks out there, the majority of mainstream users – and even the majority of early adopters – aren’t looking for a web OS you have to install on your own. If folks are that into privacy and open source, they’ll just install Linux and manage their own backups instead. Besides, offering the host-your-own solution almost misses the point of being a web OS. The promise of cloud computing is that it’s supposed to make our lives easier – our data lives on the web now and not on our fallible hard disks and CDs. We don’t have to backup, because Google (or any other cloud vendor) does that for you. We don’t have to worry with hard drive space either – we use the cloud, sometimes even for a fee, and we can get to our data from anywhere using any device. And all this is provided to you within your browser. Yes, it does mean that we give up a bit of our privacy in the process, but it’s a trade that most are willing to make. All this being said, the updates to eyeos 2.0 are a nice step forward for the fledging webtop and will appeal to those interested in that sort of thing…but, sadly, we’re guessing that most of you aren’t. sarah perez The other key part to eyeos 2.0 is the focus on collaboration. As with Google Docs, eyeos provides a web office component that allows you to invite friends to collaborate with you. As multiple users log in to edit the same file, colored lines display to highlight which sections are being edited by your colleagues or friends. You can also add comments and view the changes made by the other collaborators. At the moment, though, this “web office” feature appears to be limited to a word processor and calendar. Since the announcement of Google Chrome OS, the upcoming web-based operating system from search giant Google, a number of smaller web OS startups have hoped to capitalize on the renewed interest in the cloud desktop. One of those startups, eyeos, today announced their plans to release the next major upgrade to their web OS product, eyeos 2.0, on January 1st, 2010. To differentiate themselves from the herd, eyeos offers a couple of unique features including automatic sync with the local desktop and a host-your-own option. But is this what users really want in a cloud os? Eyeos 2.0: Coming in 2010According to news from the eyeos team, the new eyeos 2.0 operating system isn’t just a revamp of the company’s former product, it’s something entirely new, built “from scratch,” notes a company blog post. With a new UI (pictured below), new applications, and new concept for how the web-based desktop should work, the update is more than a fresh coat of paint. Upon login, for example, instead of displaying a simulated computer desktop complete with icons and wallpaper, the updated OS features a new dock bar whose menus link you to applications, events, contacts, and more.

Pune: The city police detained two persons on Tuesday for threatening Shrimant Kokate, a self-proclaimed historical researcher, and leader of the pro-Maratha, anti-Brahmin outfit Sambhaji Brigade.Santosh Shinde, a member of the outfit, told The Hindu that they suspect the accused of being Hindutva activists. “A WhatsApp group of around 80-90 persons had been regularly threatening Mr. Kokate since the past week, exhorting him to stop lecturing on King Shivaji and other aspects of Maharashtra’s history,” he said.He added that a case has been lodged in the Shivajinagar police station and two persons have been taken in police custody.According to sources in the police station, a case was lodged under Sections 501 (attempted defamation), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace), and 507 (criminal intimidation by an anonymous communication) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), and Sections 67 and 67(a) of the IT Act, among others.Mr. Kokate is known for his provocative lectures and writings on the life of Maratha warrior King Chhatrapati Shivaji, besides other aspects of the State’s history, like the Battle of Panipat. He is also critical of Brahmanical narratives and his speeches have aroused the ire of Hindutva groups like the Hindu Janjagruti Samiti (HJS).In 2010, the Kolhapur district police police reportedly issued a restraining notice to Mr. Kokate under clause 149 of the IPC, following a complaint by the HJS.
