Cuba’s Internet Capacity To Increase 3,000x

first_imgTags:#international#news#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts According to a press release from the International Telecommunications Union, a new undersea data cable connected to Cuba this week will increase the amount of the country’s data and video transmission speed 3,000-fold when it becomes operation this summer. The ALBA-1 cable arrived in Siboney on February 9th, linking the eastern Cuban town to the cable’s start-point in the Venezuelan port city of La Guaira. The second part of the project will lead from Cuba to Ochos Rios in Jamaica. The Prestige of the Internet The Venezuela-Cuba joint project has been advertised as a triumph against the United States embargo of the island nation. Venezuela’s Gran Caribe and Cuba’s Transbit hired a Chinese subsidiary of the French company Alcatel-Lucent to lay the cable at a cost of $70 million. It took 19 days for the specialized cable-laying ship, Île de Batz to make the journey from Venezuela. The project is an indication of how important the Internet is, even to countries whose relationship to communications is antagonistic. Currently, virtually no private Cuban citizens can secure an Internet connection. To blog, Cuba’s small blogger community must copy their posts onto a thumb-drive and sneak into a dollar-only hotel to post, or to email the post to compatriots outside the country.Cuba’s BloggersAccording to a leaked diplomatic cable, the Cuban government is more afraid of this small but powerful group of bloggers than it is of its entire old-style dissident population. Nevertheless, according to the press release: curt hopkins Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting “Cuban officials say the country’s priority will be to build more public telecentres and improve Internet access at schools, hospitals and scientific institutions.”Look for Hugo Chávez’s government to provide its Cuban counterpart with extensive filtering tools, perhaps by passing on software and hardware made by American companies like Cisco and McAfee.Siboney photo by Klaus Schaefer | Île de Batz photo from Wikimedia Commons | other sources: BBC, AP/TMC, Cuba Standard 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Col. Rickman pointed out that there is a desire to reach a larger number of unattached youth in the short-term, thus minimising any likelihood of their involvement in illicit activities.“In order to achieve this, we need the assistance of entities that are willing to participate by offering apprenticeship opportunities to our participants,” he stated.The National Coordinator noted that engagements through the initiative are mutually beneficial for both the host agency and the worker.He explained that projects that would have been earmarked for completion by the entity can sometimes be executed at a fraction of the allocated budget by recruiting the services of interns.“Participants in the programme have, so far, been engaged in the areas of: Customer Service, Digitisation, Maintenance, Vector Control, Garment Manufacturing, and the National Service Corps, among others,” Lt. Col. Rickman informed.He also stated that in many cases, the hosts are particularly impressed with the performance and dedication of the recruits they have received through the programme.The first batch of participants are expected to be certified and participate in a graduation exercise by mid-year.

This Buffalo Bills Team Is Worse Than Most Bills Teams This Century

But with only a few hours left in 2017, the streak came to a glorious end. After beating Miami on Sunday, Buffalo desperately needed Cincinnati to eliminate Baltimore, and Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton complied — finding Tyler Boyd for a game-winning touchdown on 4th-and-12 in the final minute. The play sent the Bills locker room into hysterics, while fans back home braved bitterly cold weather past midnight on New Year’s Eve to greet the team plane at the airport.New head coach Sean McDermott has led the franchise out of the regular-season desert, but there’s an irony to his triumph: This Bills squad is actually worse than many of those that failed to make the playoffs since that 1999 season. There are Bills fans old enough to buy beer who can’t remember what a Bills playoff team looks like — but even they ought to be able to tell that this squad is something less than one of the 12 best teams in the NFL.“You are what your record says you are,” Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells famously asserted. But ESPN’s Brian Burke estimates that randomness accounts for about 42 percent of NFL outcomes, and the NFL’s playoff structure builds in even more inequity. The 2008 New England Patriots won 11 games but missed the playoffs, while the 2014 Carolina Panthers got in with a 7-8-1 record.This year’s Bills team finished 9-7, but based on Football Outsiders’ estimated wins and Pythagorean wins metrics,1Per Football Outsiders, Pythagorean wins are based on pure point differential, while estimated wins use a “Forest Index” to emphasize consistency and performance in high-leverage situations. it only earned 6.8 and 6.3 wins, respectively. Put another way, an NFL team that gets outscored by 57 points on the year (as the Bills did) mathematically ought to win about six or seven games.But it’s not just about wins. Pick a metric of team strength, and the Bills are typically at or below the median: 21st in scoring differential, 15th in FiveThirtyEight’s Elo ratings, 23rd in Simple Rating System,2Pro Football Reference’s Simple Rating System is derived from scoring differential and strength of schedule. 21st in Defense-adjusted Value Over Average.3Football Outsiders’ DVOA metric breaks down every NFL play and determines its value when compared to a league baseline based on situation (i.e., down and distance, field position, score).These Bills don’t stack up well against the 17 iterations that came before them, either: The best Bills team since 1999 was the 9-7 2004 squad. At 31.3 percent better than average, it was the NFL’s No. 3 team by overall DVOA. Buffalo’s defense, led by Pro Bowlers Takeo Spikes and Nate Clements, ranked No. 1. The team’s 12.4 estimated wins and 11.1 Pythagorean wins show they were actually much stronger than what their record said.The 2004 Bills lost their first four games, three by a combined margin of just 8 points and the other a 31-17 loss to the (eventual Super Bowl champion) New England Patriots. They then went 9-2 over their next 11 games, including a six-game win streak during which they outscored their opponents 228-89. Needing one last win to secure a playoff berth, they tripped up against a Pittsburgh Steelers team resting some of its starters. Football Outsiders deemed the 2004 Bills the best team to miss the playoffs since 1986 — as far back as its data goes.Despite racking up the same number of real-world wins, 2017’s Bills are a whopping 41.1 percentage points worse in DVOA. They also produced 5.6 fewer estimated wins and 4.8 fewer Pythagorean wins. Remember that 42 percent randomness? That this year’s Bills got to the same 9-7 record as the 2004 team suggests these two squads approached the upper and lower bounds of “lucky” and “unlucky” NFL results.The 2017 Bills aren’t the best Bills team since 1999, or anywhere close — they’re actually no better than seventh-worst in any of these metrics. Outside of running the ball with LeSean McCoy, these Bills don’t do anything well: They’re 29th in offensive yardage and 26th in yardage on defense. They keep their heads above water with a per-drive turnover rate that’s a little higher on defense (13.1 percent, 10th-best) than offense (8.9 percent, eighth-worst).2012 is the most recent year the Bills weren’t better across the board than they are now — and that group went 6-10.None of this can take away the joy Bills fans everywhere felt when the Ravens’ Week 17 collapse handed their team a wild-card berth, of course. But there’s a reason the Bills organization sent the Cincinnati Bengals thank-yous: This trip to the postseason was much more about being lucky than good.Check out our latest NFL predictions. 2006-2.17.78.07 2009-10.45.96.66 20152.78.58.88 2011-9.76.47.16 200431.3%11.112.49 read more

Five questions to ask about Ohio State – Indiana

Will Terrelle Pryor’s injury return the offense to ‘Tresselball?’ Following Pryor’s left quadriceps strain and his subsequent exit from the Illinois game, OSU reverted back to the offense featured during most of 2009: a heavy dose of the running game. Coach Jim Tressel said Pryor “will be fine” and should be near 100 percent in practice. As Pryor heals, expect Tressel to tone down the zone-reads and bootlegs and install more short passes and traditional hand-offs to the running backs. Even if Pryor is completely healthy come Saturday, presume OSU will dial back the offense a tad. Is it time for another Jeannette, Pa., native to shine? OSU’s running back situation is pretty transparent. Dan Herron is a solid but unspectacular between-the-tackles runner. Although Brandon Saine has tremendous straight-ahead speed, he has difficulty cutting quickly and moving laterally. Jordan Hall’s numbers aren’t mind-blowing (72 yards on 13 carries), but Pryor’s high school teammate has shown shiftiness and ability to burst through the hole and has some calling for him to see more playing time. Despite saying he is a “Jordan Hall fan” and has “1 million percent faith” in the sophomore, Tressel gave the vibe that “Boom” and “Zoom” would continue to share most of the carries. Can Christian Bryant fill Tyler Moeller’s shoes? With Moeller out for the season with a torn pectoral muscle, Tressel said the defense will most likely proceed with Bryant as the starter at the “star” position. Bryant “got a good baptism Saturday and he’s going to get immersed [this Saturday],” Tressel said. The former Cleveland-Glenville star played every offensive-skill position in high school in addition to being an All-Ohio defender while playing both cornerback and safety. That versatility, in addition to his football savvy, has ignited his rise up the depth chart. Will the high-powered Hoosier attack exploit the banged-up Buckeye secondary? In last Saturday’s loss to Michigan, Indiana senior quarterback Ben Chappell set school records with 45 completions, 64 attempts and 480 passing yards. He’s posted eight straight multi-touchdown games and leads the Big Ten with 342.5 passing yards per game. Junior wide receiver Tandon Doss leads the Big Ten with almost 108 yards a game receiving and is second in the conference in receptions with nearly eight per contest. As a unit, the Hoosier pass offense ranks No. 4 in the nation. Although the OSU defense ranks No. 1 in the Big Ten in pass defense, allowing about 161 yards per game, aside from Miami, it hasn’t faced as diverse a passing attack as it will see Saturday against IU. OSU has also lost two of its normal starters, Moeller and C.J. Barnett, to season-ending injuries. Will the Buckeyes be caught looking ahead to their Oct. 16 showdown in Camp Randall against Wisconsin? OSU’s first big road test was supposed to come next Saturday against Wisconsin, but instead it came last Saturday against the Illini. Tressel said that game was a bit of a reality check for some players. “I think the fact that we played a Big Ten game and our guys see the difference between the non-conference and the Big Ten was great for us,” Tressel said. “We didn’t play our best and our guys would like to get to the point where we play our best, so I think they’ll be ready to go.” Although Wisconsin lost its first game of the season Saturday at Michigan State, the showdown a week from Saturday could go a long way in determining the winner of the Big Ten. read more

Apple will also build new campuses in Seattle and Culver City, along with San Diego, and increase the size of its offices in cities around the country like New York, Boston and Portland.“Talent, creativity and tomorrow’s breakthrough ideas aren’t limited by region or zip code, and, with this new expansion, we’re redoubling our commitment to cultivating the high-tech sector and workforce nationwide,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said in the announcement.Apple officials were tight-lipped about the details of the San Diego campus, but rumors have swirled of a possible location in University City. The tech giant is one of several big names to add offices in San Diego in recent years. Google opened a 60,000-square-foot office in 2016, while Amazon opened a tech hub in University City in September of this year.Apple plans to add 1,000 jobs in San Diego, as well as Seattle and Culver City, by the end of 2021.“Joining an influx of other large tech firms like Amazon, Google and Teradata, Apple is setting up a significant operation in San Diego to take advantage of the region’s STEM talent,” said Mark Cafferty, president and CEO of the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corp. “We look forward to building a stronger working relationship with Apple to help them grow and succeed in this already thriving tech hub.” Apple ❤️ Austin!
