NEW ORLEANS — It’s a Bourbon Street battle of jumbo beers, just before Mardi Gras’ climactic weekend: Huge Ass Beers vs. Giant Ass Beer.The New Orleans Advocate reports that the Huge Ass Beers creator is suing another string of bars and clubs on the famous New Orleans street for marketing a rival draft beer pour as Giant Ass Beer.The lawsuit filed Tuesday in New Orleans federal court alleges trademark infringement and seeks a restraining order barring the sale of Giant Ass Beer, as well as damages.An attorney for the owner of the three businesses that sell Huge Ass Beers’ plus-sized pours says his client has no comment.Representatives of the operators of the businesses that sell Giant Ass Beer didn’t immediately respond to the newspaper’s request for comment.___Information from: The New Orleans Advocate, http://www.neworleansadvocate.comThe Associated Press read more

French finance minister to fight GE’s plan to cut jobs

PARIS — France’s finance minister is asking U.S. company General Electric to change its plans to cut more than 1,000 jobs in France.Bruno Le Maire said Wednesday he will talk to GE’s CEO, Larry Culp, by phone on Thursday. He committed to “stand by the employees’ side.”GE on Tuesday announced plans to cut jobs in France, mostly in its plant in the eastern city of Belfort, which currently employs more than 4,000 people.The industrial conglomerate said its strategy to cut costs will mostly focus on its gas power business.Earlier this year, the French government decided to fine GE 50 million euros ($56 million) after the company didn’t create the jobs it had promised when it announced the purchase of part of French rival Alstom in 2014.The Associated Press read more

A favourite proKeystone XL talking point takes a burst of friendly fire

by Alexander Panetta, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 3, 2015 12:17 pm MDT WASHINGTON – Canada’s ambassador to the U.S. likes to joke that he walks around Washington carrying a copy of the State Department environmental report on the Keystone XL pipeline tucked in his jacket pocket.That’s how critical that document has been to the pipeline cause. Proponents from ambassador Gary Doer, to members of the Harper cabinet, industry players, and pro-oil lawmakers have repeatedly quoted it as a talking point.Its basic conclusion became their mantra: Canadian oil production is destined to keep growing, so might as well build a pipeline, which is safer and cleaner than shipping by rail.That document, however, is now being punctured by bursts of friendly fire. It’s coming from within the Obama administration, striking parts of its own report.President Barack Obama routinely dismisses one finding that oil from the pipeline would likely be used in the U.S. Obama has taken to deriding the project as an export route through America, not to America.An even more fundamental finding of the report is now being challenged from within the administration. The Environmental Protection Agency has questioned the inevitability of oilsands expansion. It suggests the current projection is out of date, because the price of oil has plunged since the State Department issued its report last year.“It is important to revisit these conclusions,” says an EPA letter sent this week to the State Department and released Wednesday.“Given recent large declines in oil prices and the uncertainty of oil price projections, the additional low price scenario included in the (State report) should be given additional weight during decision making, due to the potential implications of lower oil prices on project impacts, especially greenhouse gas emissions.”The State Department’s report had concluded that the Canadian oilsands would keep growing at a similar pace, unless the long-term oil price fell under the $65-$75 range and no other pipelines got built.One year later, oil is at $50 a barrel and no other pipelines have yet been built.The State Department is now in the final stages of preparing its long-awaited, oft-delayed review of the project, and gathering input from other agencies including the EPA.It will soon make a recommendation to the president, and he’ll make the final call.At the same time, there are plans within Congress to force Obama’s hand. So far, Obama has signalled he intends to veto bills that would circumvent his authority on cross-border infrastructure.Obama has said his decision will be guided by climate change — and whether or not the project would increase greenhouse gases.In its letter this week, the EPA compares the carbon emissions from the pipeline’s maximum capacity of 830,000 barrels per day to 5.7 million new passenger vehicles on the road.Environmental groups celebrated the letter’s release Wednesday.“The president’s got every nail he needs to finally close the coffin on this boondoggle,” said Bill McKibben, head of anti-pipeline group its response, pipeline company TransCanada Corp. said Canadian oil exports had gone up over the years, its carbon emissions per barrel had gone down, and it noted that oil sent through the pipeline to U.S. refineries would displace crude from Venezuela — which in some cases produces higher greenhouse gases.

UN event highlights integrated human security approach to meeting threats

“We meet at a time of great turmoil and transition,” Mr. Ban told participants as he opened the high-level event on human security, held at United Nations Headquarters.“The global economy is in crisis. The environment is under threat. Too many people around the world live in uncertainty. Old conflicts simmer. New conflicts explode. Warring parties target civilians. Violence is a problem even in peaceful countries. Women and girls are especially at risk,” he stated. “These are serious problems – but there are signs of progress,” Mr. Ban added. “I welcome growing calls by citizens around the world – especially young people – for justice, dignity and true democracy. These voices give us hope that we can transform our challenges into prospects for a better future.”The Secretary-General said the dramatic events of recent years have provided two lessons. First, it is more important than ever to find comprehensive solutions to the world’s interlinked problems. “You cannot end poverty without empowering women and girls. You cannot establish lasting peace without respect for human rights. You cannot increase prosperity or address climate change without transforming the world’s energy systems. We have to advance on all fronts.”Secondly, he said, the approach must not only be comprehensive but also broad-based. “We need traditional partners, like Governments and non-governmental organizations. But we also need academics, businesses, philanthropists and others to help end poverty, promote development and establish peace,” he stated. “The human security approach can help frame our efforts,” he said, welcoming the General Assembly’s adoption of its first-ever resolution on a common understanding of human security last September. He added that this consensus builds on more than a decade of successful projects backed by the UN Trust Fund for Human Security (UNTFHS). Established in 1999 and administered by the Human Security Unit, the Trust Fund supports projects to translate the human security approach into practical actions, in particular those at the field level. It has financed over 200 projects in 85 countries. “The Fund’s projects have enabled communities around the world to make the transition towards peace and sustainable development,” said Mr. Ban. “They have succeeded because they focus on people’s needs. They draw on experts from different disciplines and different agencies. They transcend what we might think of as traditional humanitarian or development work.”Today’s event aims to derive lessons learned from the projects that have been implemented and to mobilize support for the advancement of human security within the UN and beyond, according to a concept paper prepared by the Trust Fund.Participants will reflect on achievements and challenges in the implementation of human security 10 years after the release of the Commission on Human Security’s report “Human Security Now.”Sonia Picado, Chair of the Advisory Board on Human Security, will introduce the work of that entity – whose international experts guide the activities of the Trust Fund – and discuss its hopes for spurring a global initiative on human security.Also participating in the event are Sadako Ogata, former UN High Commissioner for Refugees, President of the Japan International Cooperation Agency and co-Chair of the Commission on Human Security (CHS), and Surin Pitsuwan, former Secretary-General of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Minister of Foreign Affairs of Thailand and member of the CHS. Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson will close the event, which is also being attended by members of the Advisory Board on Human Security, individuals from academia, as well as representatives of non-governmental and civil society organizations with an interest in human security and related issues. read more

Whaley Bridge Derbyshire town evacuated amid fears flooding could cause dam to

Dr Mohammed Heidarzadeh, a professor from the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Brunel University London, said: “Due to heavy rainfall in Whaley Bridge area, the spillway is now broken and a big chunk of its concrete structure is damaged.”There is a possibility that the spillway could then become fully broken in a few hours.”If the spillway is fully gone, the embankment dam will be washed away very rapidly which could cause a massive flood.” Crazy that Whaley Bridge has been completely evacuated because the dam might burst. I was there last year and took this picture at that same dam— 🥃 (@Greg_Ivan_) August 1, 2019 The Toddbrook Reservoir dam after it was damaged in heavy rainfall. Professor Roderick Smith, from Imperial College London, said: “Extreme weather events mean that there is increasing unease about the safety of older dams: particularly the need to release excess water safely and easily.”The reservoir was damaged due to flooding in 1964, according to the Environment Agency, but another specialist said it was “unlikely” it had been in an unsafe condition before the heavy rainfall on Thursday.Professor Tim Broyd, Professor of Built Environment Foresight at University College London, said: “Dams are highly regulated structures, which includes regular structural inspections by highly qualified engineers.”It is unlikely therefore that the dam was in a previously unsafe condition.”What may have been the cause, however, is that the flow rate into the reservoir was exceptionally high, as a result of extreme local rainflows.” Experts are divided as to whether the concrete and earthwork structure will survive that long.Dr Mohammad Heidarzadeh, an engineer at Brunel University London, said such designs could be “washed away very rapidly”.“Due to heavy rainfall in Whaley Bridge area, the spillway is now broken and a big chunk of its concrete structure is damaged,” he said.“There is a possibility that the spillway could then become fully broken in a few hours.”Anna Aspinall, 36, from Whaley Bridge, said she and others had been called to help place sandbags near the dam, but were sent away after structural engineers warned “that the wall is at high risk of failing”.She said: “We are praying the dam wall holds whilst the Canal and River Trust try to drain the water from the reservoir.” The evacuation has been exacerbated by the deterioration of the roads in and around the town, following days of torrential rain.Steve Cliffe, a pensioner, said the surface of the road to his hamlet of Fernilee, 1.5 miles away, was all torn up and the community completely cut off. “We just can’t get out,” he said. Paul Nash and his partner Janet Williams barely had time to grab their cat and a few essentials before being forced to abandon their home.They cannot know when – or if – they will see it again. “If the whole dam goes, it’s going to cause absolute chaos,” he said.“Probably the village will go, because it [the river] goes straight through.”The couple joined an exodus of more than 6,000 people fleeing the centre of Whaley Bridge on Thursday as the concrete dam began to crumble.The blotched notices hastily handed out by the emergency services left no room for doubt. “EVACUATE your property now”, they read, “Take any medication and medical equipment with you.”As the heavens opened once more on Thursday night, the centre of the picturesque Peak District community was a ghost town, save for the sound of police going door to door, trying to coax out every last resident from the “red” danger zone.Evacuees were told to gather at a school three miles away in Chapel-en-le-Frith while engineers began pumping water out of the reservoir to take pressure off the stricken dam.It will take an estimated three days to reduce the volume to a safe level.

There’s nowhere for it to go, the river has already burst its banks and the ground is sodden.”All roads were closed midday and we all got asked to evacuate about two hours ago. Now we’re stuck in traffic in the outlying town of New Mills as everyone is trying to leave and some local roads are flooded. My children are coping well after being worried this morning.”I don’t think I would class it as scary, lots of experts on hand and it seemed well managed. The scary part will be what happens next as all services – such as electricity, gas and medical services, and the primary school – are in the direct line of the water.” Toddbrook Reservoir near the village of Whaley Bridge Toddbrook Reservoir near the village of Whaley BridgeCredit:PA Carolyn Whittle, 45, who lives in Meadowfield, on the hillside in Whaley Bridge, said she had never seen water flood over the dam in her lifetime.She said: “We are situated north-west of the mouth of the reservoir, approx 400 feet about the water level.”There is currently a request, we believe, for all to evacuate due to emergency services access.”An hour ago, there was a lot of emergency service activity and frenzy while my son was trying to reach home. Another section of the concrete on the dam face has now collapsed.”We have friend’s children here with us, who would have had to camp out at the high school otherwise.”Everyone I know is horrified that our whole town could be decimated in a matter of minutes, it’s terrible.”I’ve lived in Whaley for the best part of 45 years and I’ve never seen water flood over the dam like that, ever, nor thought that we could possibly be at risk in this way.”We’re gaining all our information from social at the moment. If we need to go, we will get in my defender and head over Disley tops. It’s closed, but mainly to stop people trying to access Whaley centre, which police are not allowing at the bottom of our road.”I’m really scared the dam will actually go. Best solution is a smaller flood of the Goyt river, with flood risks as far as Marple. When we went to see what was happening earlier, the fire brigade had arranged a tanker to pump water away from the reservoir, and a digger to dam the area where the river was still refilling the reservoir.” 11:31PMRAF helicopter deployed to prevent dam from collapsing further, police confirm A police spokesperson said: “There is a high probability that there will be significant flooding due to damage caused in recent severe weather.“People are asked to make alternative arrangements to stay with friends and family. If anyone is not able to do so then they will be accommodated, however, there is limited capacity to do so.“We understand that there will be some concern around not being able to return home, however, our priority is to ensure people are kept safe and well and are not taking unnecessary risks.“This is not a decision that has been taken lightly and we appreciate that there is significant impact on this community, however, this is an unprecedented, fast-moving, emergency situation.“We will keep people regularly updated and we are working with our partners to resolve the issue as quickly as we can.” 9:11PM”Horrified” residents fear the whole town could be “decimated” within minutes, witness says 6:33PMWhat Whaley Bridge dam looked like a year ago… Sandbags are being used to help shore up dam wall at Whaley BridgeMore than 6,000 people have been told to leave their homes amid fears the dam could burst— BBC News (UK) (@BBCNews) August 1, 2019 4:54PMPictures of the dam show the extent of the damage 7:47PMThe latest from Derbyshire police An RAF Chinook is being drafted in overnight on Thursday to help prevent the dam from collapsing further.Derbyshire Police said over 400 tonnes of aggregate will be used to divert water from entering the reservoir.Deputy Chief Constable Rachel Swann, chairwoman of the Local Resilience Forum, said: “To move the substantial amount of aggregate into place – a Chinook helicopter will be operating in the area in the coming hours to allow precise placement and divert the flow of the water.”With all that said, at this time the future of the dam wall remains in the balance and I would remind people of the very real danger posed to them should the wall collapse.”Water pumps will continue to remove water from the reservoir to relieve pressure on the dam wall. 9:01PMFurther evacuations take place downstream of river, police say Workers inspect a damaged dam after a nearby reservoir was affected by flooding, in Whaley Bridge, Britain August 1, 2019. 4:52PMDerbyshire Police say the situation is ‘unprecedented’ 5:33PM”Lucky we live up the hill”  6:14PMMother evacuated with her children: “The scary part will be what happens next” An aerial photograph shows the damage to the damCredit: PHIL NOBLE/Reuters 5:52PM”It could cause a massive flood” Toddbrook Reservoir is on the north-west edge of the Peak District National Park, sitting above the small town of Whaley Bridge.It was built in 1831, according to some experts, while the Environment Agency record it as being built between 1840-41.The structure supplies water to the Peak Forest Canal, a waterway in northern England running between the town and Ashton under Lyne.Owned by the Canal & River Trust, the reservoir is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to local wildlife.Reservoir safety is maintained by inspections under an act created in 1930 and strengthened in 1975, according to experts, but flooding and other weather events have led to concerns about safety of older structures.

Derbyshire Police said further evacuations were taking place downstream of the reservoir as work continues to ensure the structure of the damaged wall.A small number of properties in Furness Vale and New Mills – outside Whaley Bridge but inside the flood risk area – are in the process of being evacuated.A number of roads in the area remain closed, police said. Edwina Currie, the former MP, lives in a 400-year-old cottage above Whaley Bridge. “The first job is to lower the level as safely as possible – that means taking risks further downstream,” she told the BBC.“It’s more important to try to save the dam and get it repaired.“As dusk fell last night the only vehicles in the main street of Whaley Bridge belonged to the emergency services.A spokesman for Derbyshire Police said: “We understand that there will be some concern around not being able to return home. However, our priority is to ensure people are kept safe and well and are not taking unnecessary risks.“This is not a decision that has been taken lightly and we appreciate there is a significant impact on this community. However, this is an unprecedented, fast-moving, emergency situation.”The Environment Agency has issued a severe flood warning, suggesting a danger to life, covering the River Goyt at Whaley Bridge. It states that the river could “rise rapidly” due to water rushing in from the reservoir.Police have closed railway lines in the Whaley Bridge area amid concerns a dam will burst and cause flooding, East Midlands Trains said.Trains on the route between Liverpool Lime Street and Norwich are disrupted due to the predicted flooding. read more

Les quasicristaux sont bien dorigine extraterrestre

first_imgLes quasi-cristaux sont bien d’origine extraterrestreL’unique quasi-cristal jamais retrouvé à l’état naturel dans un minerai serait d’origine extra-terrestre vieille de plus de 4 milliards d’années. Une théorie soutenue pendant des années par un chimiste israélien et qui trouve aujourd’hui confirmation.Un quasi-cristal est composé de cristaux aux motifs réguliers mais se répétant sans périodicité, une structure a priori impensable pour un cristal. Cette découverte réalisée en 1982 par le chimiste israélien Daniel Shechtman l’a amené à étudier de plus près ces quasi-cristaux. Or, le chercheur était persuadé de l’origine extraterrestre de ce motif et a dû batailler pendant de longues années pour poursuivre ses recherches. En effet, dans la mesure où ces cristaux pouvaient être synthétisés en laboratoire, une origine extraterrestre paraissait douteuse.  Toutefois, les conditions de formation d’un quasi-cristal naturel restent mystérieuses.À lire aussiD’étranges micro-organismes découverts dans les cristaux géants d’une grotte au MexiqueJusqu’à présent, l’unique quasi-cristal naturel découvert dans un minerai réside dans un échantillon rare de khatyrkite détenu par le musée minéralogique de l’université de Florence, en Italie. Le responsable du musée, Luca Bindi, s’est allié aux physiciens américains Paul Steinhardt et Nan Yao, de l’université de Princeton, pour tester de nombreux échantillons en quête d’un mystérieux quasi-cristal. L’étude qu’ils ont menée a ainsi confirmé que ces quasi-cristaux existaient à l’état naturel dans un minerai (l’article le décrivant fut publié dans Science en juin 2009). Mais Paul Steinhardt, Nan Yao et Luca Bindi viennent d’apporter de nouveaux éléments sur ce quasi-cristal composé de fer, de cuivre et d’aluminium. Dans un article publié ce mardi dans les Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, ils estiment à leur tour qu’il s’est probablement formé en dehors de la Terre. Selon eux, il pourrait provenir par exemple d’une météorite, vieille d’il y a 4,5 milliards d’années, aux origines du système solaire. C’est l’analyse d’un fragment de stishovite de l’échantillon qui contient un grain du quasi-cristal qui pousse les chercheurs à cette interprétation. Une signature proche de celle des météorites En effet, ce silicate ne se forme que dans des conditions de très fortes pressions et de très hautes températures (plus de 1500 °C), comparables à celles que l’on trouve dans les profondeurs du manteau terrestre. De plus, les analyses des isotopes d’oxygène de l’olivine et du pyroxène présents dans l’échantillon, donnent elles une signature proche de celle des météorites carbonées. Ce qui suggère que le fragment est d’origine extraterrestre, expliquent les chercheurs. Ils rejoignent finalement la thèse de Shechtman qui a d’ailleurs été récompensé par un prix Nobel de chimie en 2011.Le 7 janvier 2012 à 14:20 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

HAPIfork is a Smart Fork For Your Dumb Mouth

first_imgStay on target You know how to eat, don’t you? It’s simple enough. When you’re hungry, just take the food (or Tide Pod) and put it in your mouth as fast as you can, right? Wrong! One of America’s numerous food-related issues is the problem of overeating. And one of the easiest ways to overeat by eating too fast, before you even have a chance to feel full and stop yourself. But self-control is hard. Fortunately, we know have the technology to give ourselves a little push to stay below the eating speed limit. HAPIfork is a smart fork for your dumb mouth.HAPIfork works like a regular dumb fork. You poke it into food and eat the food off of it, repeating as many times as necessary. The difference is that sensors in the utensil can tell how fast you’re moving the fork, and therefore figure out how fast you’re eating. If you’re gorging too quickly, the fork vibrates and lights up signalling you to stop, or at least feel a little guilty. When you eat at the proper pace you can lose weight and avoid digestive problems.Haptic diet feedback is HAPIfork’s main gimmick, but that’s not all this Bluetooth device can do. Connect it to a computer or mobile app to view trends of your eating progress and set helpful future goals. Presumably, the HAPI software will also help you keep a handle on what you’re ingesting and how nutritious it is, because eating a ten-pound chocolate bar over two hours is probably still less healthy than eating ten salads in two minutes.AdChoices广告You can buy HAPIfork online from HAPI for $99 or less depending on deals. That may seem like a lot considering a cheap piece of pointy plastic will also technically get the job done. But the potential health benefits of this fork are priceless.

Port of Vancouver city team up to enhance job growth

first_imgWhen opportunities arise to help businesses grow and to create jobs, the Port of Vancouver and the city of Vancouver want to be able to move quickly to grab them.To that end, port and city officials are working on a formal agreement intended to streamline their ability to collaborate on economic development projects, including marketing the region to businesses and crafting land-use and transportation plans.It’s a broad agreement. It requires the port and city to define how they’ll work together, including which agency will take the lead on a project, how they’ll pay for it and when they’ll get it done.No financial commitments have been made yet, and no specific projects have been targeted.Nevertheless, the port on Tuesday moved forward with its end of the deal, as its Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to approve the interlocal agreement as recommended by port administrators.That recommendation spelled out the expected impacts of the agreement, including that it will enable the port and the city to better serve the public “by efficient use of public resources and shared planning” to help spur economic growth.last_img read more

Italdesigns striking gullwing concept is named after DaVinci

first_img More From Roadshow The Italdesign DaVinci is a striking coupe concept in Geneva 0 2019 Honda CR-V review: Still one of the best small SUVs around Mar 7 • The Ferrari F8 Tributo is the last of the nonhybrid V8s Enlarge ImageSpecial ducting in the hood is one of the car’s key design elements. Chris Paukert/Roadshow Italdesign’s latest concept car, revealed Tuesday at the Geneva Motor Show, is called the DaVinci. The 51-year-old design studio says the car pays homage to Leonardo da Vinci — in part because 2019 marks the 500th anniversary of the Renaissance polymath’s death.The Italdesign DaVinci is a dramatic coupe with incredibly long doors that, based on the sketch, appear to open upwards in dramatic fashion. It has a swept-back greenhouse leading into an almost Ford Mustang-like tail with wide fenders. Up front, the long, low nose has venting in it recalling the air inlets in the hood of the Ford GT. There’s two-plus-two seating inside the compact cabin, with lots of Alcantara trim. And around back, the turn signals are made from six-segment OLEDs mounted inside the fascia.The car is designed around an all-electric drivetrain, though Italdesign did say the vehicle is also capable of fitting a gasoline V8 if needed. Its design is, apparently, inspired by shapes from nature, with the goal of recalling the looks of classic Italian grand tourers. There are modern touches, however, like an active spoiler that wraps around onto the rear fenders, and various touchscreens within the cabin.The DaVinci follows many other notable Italdesign creations, such as the recent Nissan GT-R-based GT-R50. Though it’s not headed to production right now, the DaVinci is certainly an interesting looking design. 2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR first drive: A magnificent beast, indeed Mar 7 • New Peugeot 208 debuts i-Cockpit with 3D HUD Combo dashboard Post a comment Apr 17 • The 2020 Jaguar XE gets its first major visual refresh • Geneva Motor Show 2019 Tags 53 Photos Mar 8 • VW is still ‘100 percent’ investigating a pickup truck for the US See All 2019 Lexus LC 500h review: Take ‘er easy Share your voice reading • Italdesign’s striking gullwing concept is named after DaVinci Geneva Motor Show 2019 Exotic Cars Coupeslast_img read more

Restore the Control Panel link in Windows 10s WinX menu

first_imgRestore the Control Panel link in Windows 10’s Win+X menu by Martin Brinkmann on October 10, 2016 in Windows – Last Update: July 05, 2017 – 21 commentsMicrosoft added the Windows-X menu to Windows 8 in an effort to bring back some of the missing start menu links that it removed when it redesigned the start menu.The Windows 8 or Windows 10 start menu does not contain a link to the Control Panel for instance. The most likely explanation is that Microsoft removed it because it wants to move all Control Panel items to the new Settings application eventually.Users have been waiting for that day for years though and it is unclear whether the full migration is going to happen in 2017 when Microsoft plans to release two new feature updates for Windows 10.The keyboard shortcut Windows-X opens a menu in the lower left area of the screen that offers links to the Control Panel and various other important tools or settings including an elevated command prompt, the event viewer or power management.Restore Control Panel link in Windows 10’s Win+X menuIf you have installed the latest Windows 10 Insider Build you may have noticed that the Control Panel link is missing in the menu. We don’t know why it was removed, only that it removes one option for users to open the Windows Control Panel.While you may still open it using the Windows-Pause keyboard shortcut (this opens the System applet of the Control Panel), you may want to add the Control Panel link to the Windows-X menu if you used it primarily to open the Windows Control Panel.You have two options to do that.Option 1: Win+X Menu EditorWin+X Menu Editor is a free program for Windows 8 and 10 that allows you to manage all Win-X menu items.The Win+X Menu Editor by WinAero was created for Windows 8 but has been updated to be compatible with Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system as well.You may use it to remove links that you don’t need, and add links to programs or system tools that you may need.The program has not been updated in a while, and it still displays the Control Panel link in Group 2 on launch even though it is no longer displayed in the Win-X menu.You may add the Control Panel link to any group in the following way:Launch the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Win+X Menu Editor on the Windows 10 device.Select the group you want to add the Control Panel link to (by left-clicking on it).Select “Add a program” > “Add a Control Panel item” > Control Panel.This adds a Control Panel link to the selected group.That’s all there is to the operation. You may use the editor to remove links you don’t need, or add links to tools or programs that you use frequently.Option 2: the manual wayThe German blog Deskmodder has a post up that explains how to add the Control Panel link to the Win-X manually.It involves downloading the old shortcut file and replacing the new one with the old. This requires quite a bit of work, as you should back up the old file, and may need to change a system setting to display hidden files.Download the old shortcut from the Deskmodder site.Open %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\WinX\Group2 in File Explorer.Back up all entries listed in the folder.Copy the downloaded Control Panel link to the Group2 folder. It will replace the current link.Restart Explorer, for instance by using the Task Manager.Closing WordsIs the removal of the Control Panel link a hint that Microsoft will soon move all Control Panel items to the Settings application? We don’t know yet as Microsoft has not mentioned the change in the release notes.It could also be an oversight on Microsoft’s part, something that has happened in the past.Now You: Do you use the Win-X menu?SummaryArticle NameRestore the Control Panel link in Windows 10’s Win+X menuDescriptionFind out how to add the Control Panel link to the Windows 10 Win-X keyboard shortcut menu; Microsoft removed it in the latest Windows 10 version.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Investors With Cash Beat FirstTime Homebuyers to the Closing Table

first_imgInvestors With Cash Beat First-Time Homebuyers to the Closing Table in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News, Origination February 18, 2016 495 Views First-time homebuyers in need of financing methods are losing out on homes that are being swiped from them by cash investors.Investors main focus during the housing bust were foreclosures and short sales, which they used for rental or flip properties. Today, now that the market has changed, investors are offering up cash deals on homes to beat out first-time buyers.”Some economists and real-estate agents say the market is going through an uneasy transition,” a report from said. “While the foreclosure starts rate is back down to where it was before the crisis, cash and investor buying in some cities remains far above historical levels. That creates difficulty for buyers of low-price homes because more buyers are competing for fewer properties.”The share of homes that were all-cash transactions in October 2015 fell by 2.6 percentage points over-the-year down to 33.9 percent, meaning that of all residential home sales during the month, slightly more than a third were paid for in cash, according to data released by CoreLogic. A steep decline in REO sales is the main driver behind the decline in cash sales. At their peak in January 2011, REO sales made up nearly a quarter (23.9 percent) of all residential home sales; by October 2015, REO sales made up less than a third of that total (7.3 percent).While homeownership sits at a stagnant level, rental markets remain healthy, creating optimal opportunities for investors, according to a report from RentRange says are ripe for SFR investors.The SFR market gained traction as a viable asset class with phenomenal growth in 2015. The homeownership rate fell to its lowest level in nearly five decades during the summer as more and more families and individuals chose to rent.According to RentRange, markets in Florida, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Tennessee account for eight of the top ten increasing rental markets on the list. The report found that Western markets like California, Washington, and Hawaii occupy nine spots on the top twenty-five list.center_img Cash Sales First-Time Homebuyers Investors 2016-02-18 Staff Writer Sharelast_img read more
