The Windsor Hockey Heritage Centre has temporarily moved to the Haliburton House Museum and its refreshed exhibit is ready for viewing. “The exhibit is an excellent example of what can be accomplished when we combine our resources and expertise,” said Communities, Culture and Heritage minister David Wilson. “I would like to thank all provincial government staff, members of the Windsor Hockey Heritage Society and volunteers for their dedication to this project.” “This great exhibit will attract many hockey enthusiasts to Nova Scotia,” said Economic and Rural Development and Tourism Minister Percy Paris. “Innovation, such as this, is a key component of jobsHere, the plan to grow our economy. This is an example of the strategic investments the province is making to strengthen Nova Scotia’s economy.” The exhibit spans part of two floors of the museum and showcases new items and old favourites from the former Windsor Hockey Heritage Centre location. The Attic space at the museum displays hockey memorabilia and the Locker Room displays hockey jerseys and equipment from the past. The museum’s kitchen uses the concept of the hot stove to celebrate local hockey heroes. The exhibit also features the Starr Trophy and highlights the diversity in hockey, featuring the contributions of women, Aboriginal Peoples and African Nova Scotians to the sport. “Our role has always been to promote the proud history of hockey in Windsor, an area that we celebrate as the birthplace of ice hockey,” said David Hunter, president of the Windsor Hockey Heritage Society. “The new presentation of our collection better reflects that proud history and is sure to spark a connection with our visitors. We want to thank everyone for their support.” Communities, Culture and Heritage contributed exhibit space in the museum and a team to help the centre move into its temporary location and develop the new exhibit.

Kolkata: The state government has given Rs 700 crore to the state Power department for modernisation of generation and distribution of power in the state. A major objective behind the move is to reduce hazards in power generation and distribution.”We are taking several steps to prevent fatalities due to electrocution. Workers in the electrical industry and power transmission and generation industry are most susceptible to occupational hazards created out of fly ash, carbon dioxide emission etc. The state government, in order to mitigate the risks in the electrical industry, is using AV cables and also dividing the length of transmission, thereby minimising the potential risk,” state Power and Non-Conventional Energy Sources minister Sobhandeb Chattopadhyay said at the national conference on “Occupational Health and Safety- Towards a Healthy and Safe Workplace,” organised by the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC) on Friday. Also Read – City bids adieu to Goddess DurgaElaborating on the steps taken by his department, the minister said they are using SEEDN technology which helps in locating the exact area of a fault while moving from the substation located at a particular area from where the fault has been reported. The technology is equipped with a fault passage indicator, which helps in quickly identifying the location of the electric pole where there has been a problem. Earlier, engineers from the Power department had to travel long distances and check every single pole to identify the exact place where the fault had occurred. Also Read – Centuries-old Durga Pujas continue to be hit among revellers”Our department, with the objective of sustainable and uninterrupted power connection, has taken up a project of underground cable system for power supply in 74 urban townships across the state. We have set a target of 2025 for completion of this underground power supply project. We are taking up an average of 11 urban townships a year for installing this facility and work is on full swing,” a senior official in the department said. Speakers at the seminar deliberated that globally, 340 million people are affected by occupational hazards and around 140 million people are affected by occupational diseases. This figure roughly leads to loss of 4 percent of GDP in a year. Thus, special emphasis on more research on this field is needed. Also, industry academia partnership is the need of the hour for more integrated development of Occupational Health Hazards (OHH), they stated.

NBC wins weekly ratings despite lagging Olympics viewership BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – The Rio Games had a less-than-golden start for NBC but were enough of a draw to allow the network to dominate the weekly ratings.The Summer Olympics opening ceremony had 26.5 million viewers, according to Nielsen company figures released Tuesday. That’s a 35 per cent drop compared to the 40.7 million U.S. viewers who watched the opening of the London Games four years ago — although NBC is pointing to more time-shifted viewing and streaming as factors in the decrease.Still, Olympic broadcasts were the three most-watched programs of the week of Aug. 1-7.

“We need to make existing inequalities in access to energy a source of cooperation, not tensions,” President Grybauskaite told the 67th General Assembly on the first day of the annual General Debate.Noting the need to increase global energy sustainability, Ms. Grybauskaite hailed Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Sustainable Energy for All initiative, which aims to provide universal energy access, double the rate of global energy efficiency improvement, and double the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.“The use of energy dependency as an instrument for political or economic blackmail must be eliminated,” she stressed, calling for international agreements stipulating that the use of energy to gain political goals is unacceptable.“Responsibility for violations should be also clear and unavoidable,” the Lithuanian leader added. “We have to grant international institutions greater discretion to launch probes and impose sanctions on activities that hinder the free flow of energy resources, impede diversification or set unfair prices for customers.”President Grybauskaite also highlighted the need for nuclear safety, without which she said there could be no sustainability, development or peaceful cooperation, and called for nuclear safety standards to be strengthened, with international obligations adopted if needed.Scores of the world’s heads of State and government and other high-level officials are expected to present their views and comment on issues of individual national and international relevance at the Assembly’s General Debate, which ends on 1 October.
Ohio State redshirt senior forward Keita Bates-Diop (33) guards a Michigan player on an inbound play in the first half in the game against Michigan on Dec. 4. Ohio State won 71-62. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOhio State redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop allowed a transition dunk from William & Mary leading scorer Nathan Knight less than two minutes into the game. Head coach Chris Holtmann had enough.At the first media timeout, Holtmann sat Bates-Diop for a lack of effort on defense with the Buckeyes trailing the Tribe 12-10. Two minutes later, Bates-Diop checked back into the game and had one of the best games of his career.He scored a career-high 27 points and made 11-of-16 shots to lead Ohio State to a 97-62 blowout victory against William & Mary on Saturday.“I think it kind of just helped because it reset my mind,” Bates-Diop said. “I obviously wasn’t ready to play in those first few minutes so then him taking me out reset my mind, got back in and I was ready to play.”Bates-Diop played at the small forward, power forward and center against William & Mary, creating difficult matchups at each position. When Knight exited the first half with his third foul with 7:49 remaining, the Buckeyes attacked the paint with Bates-Diop and freshman center Kaleb Wesson — who scored 17 — leading the way.Ohio State shot 65 percent from the field and made 11-of-21 3-point attempts.William & Mary entered the game ranked 316th in adjusted defensive efficiency, according to KenPom. So before discussing the Buckeyes a prolific offensive team, take Saturday’s game with a grain of salt. However, it’s time to start considering Bates-Diop as a possible first-team all-Big Ten player.In Ohio State’s two conference games this season against Wisconsin and Michigan, Bates-Diop shot at least 50 percent and made two triples in each game . He’s averaging 17.5 points and 10.5 rebounds. He’s now averaging more than 18 points and nine rebounds per game with six double-doubles.Against Ohio State’s toughest opponent to date, Gonzaga, Bates-Diop grabbed 10 rebounds, but scored just seven points. If he’s going to become Ohio State’s first all-Big Ten player since the 2014-15 season, he will have to put up consistent performances against the conference’s bluebloods of Michigan State and Purdue.Holtmann said Friday before the game that sometimes it takes an extra reminder for a quieter player like Bates-Diop to get going. It appeared to work Saturday.“It’s just the mindset,” Bates-Diop said. “He’s doing a great job getting me there, it’s on me obviously, but he’s not afraid obviously to sit me for any stretch of time if I’m not doing those things I need to be doing. Obviously that worked, clearly.”Kaleb WessonIt’s probably time to conclude the center position belongs to Kaleb Wesson. Since Micah Potter went down with an injury in the second-half against Northeastern, the freshman has started every game in Potter’s place and has continued to improve.Saturday, Wesson tied a career high with seven rebounds — four of which were on the offensive glass — and recorded three steals, two assists and two blocks. He faced a double team in the post on almost every possession, which was when perhaps he displayed his most impressive talent yet by throwing cross-court passes on the mark for wide-open shooters in the corner.“He can read traps and double teams,” Holtmann said. “Eventually he’ll get to the point where he’ll command a double team most every game … his passing will really allow us to play through that.”Ohio State is not going to overwhelm any team with its shooting, which might be a reason teams will double Wesson more and risk leaving shooters open. Wesson’s passing ability, as Holtmann touched on, could lead to an increase in confidence in those shooters.“He’s been doing it all summer,” redshirt senior guard Kam Williams said. “He’s been doing it in practice, so he’s just going out there and displaying his talents. We all believe in him, so this isn’t really a surprise for us.”Another thing to continue to watch in Wesson is the big man’s footwork. The rebounds he was able to grab Saturday were because he put himself in great position against a defender. His footwork also allowed him to maneuver in the post off pump-fakes. If there is one thing to watch in Wesson as he moves forward as the starter at center, it would be his fouls. He finished the game with four fouls for the third straight game and the sixth time overall this season. He has fouled out twice. Holtmann has said throughout the season he expects Wesson to run into foul trouble, and that could be what separates him from seeing starter minutes when Potter returns.C.J. Jackson and Musa Jallow switchJunior guard C.J. Jackson returned to the starting lineup Saturday with freshman forward Musa Jallow heading back to the bench. Jackson was moved to the bench following a loss to Clemson, in a game he turned the ball over five times and had three assists. Since then, he had turned the ball over three times with six assists in two games. He continued that production Saturday.Jackson dished out six assists with only one turnover. He scored 16 points on 4-of-5 shooting from 3-point range.William & Mary is ranked 345th of 351 teams in opponent turnover percentage. Holtmann said the test for Jackson’s newly found poise in running the point will be against teams that create turnovers.“But so far, he’s been able to make more poised, smart decisions with the ball,” he said. “And he’s, offensively, really impacting the game with his ability to make 3s.”TidbitsThe Buckeyes were thin on the bench Saturday with freshman forward Kyle Young sitting out with a sprained ankle. Holtmann said he will probably be available next Saturday against Appalachian State. If Ohio State is to lose any bench depth at a position, it’s probably best at the small forward or power forward because Bates-Diop can be moved around and create matchup problems for traditional centers.The 3-point shooting for Ohio State has risen substantially in the past three games. The Buckeyes are now shooting 36.2 percent from 3, following another 50-plus percent day beyond the arc. In the past two games, Ohio State missed all 11 3-point shots in the second half, but that factor was mitigated by strong first-half 3-point shooting against Wisconsin and Michigan. Ohio State was 7-for-8 in the first half against the Badgers and 5-for-8 against Michigan.“I think we’re taking better ones. I think that’s probably it,” Holtmann said. “I think we’re taking a higher quality of 3s than what we took at times early in the year.Ohio State also defended the 3-point line well Saturday against a William & Mary team that makes more than 12 shots from deep per game. The Tribe was 5-for-16 Saturday. Holtmann said when drawing up a game plan, he remembered a conversation he had with college basketball statistical analyst Ken Pomeroy about teams who shoot at incredibly efficient levels like William & Mary.“What’s really key is limited their attempts,” he said. “Now that extends you and opens you up to slips and drives, and that effects your 2-point field goal percentage a bit. But I’ve seen those guys shoot through eight games and if we were going to allow them to shoot 28 to 30 3s, they’re going to make 14 or 15 of those and we’re in trouble. So we did try to limit their attempts and that was important for us.”

Nick Bennett took the ball first for the Cardinals on Thursday, tossing three scoreless innings before allowing a pair of runs in the top of the fourth. Bryan Hoeing gave up one run in 2.1 innings before turning it over to Garrett Schmeltz, who gave up a hit before getting a double play to end the seventh.

The gameplay remains true to the previous games, where you have multiple choices and augmentations to be as stealthy as you like, or you can just go in guns blazing.And it’s the use of guns in the game that could render your $6.99 purchase completely useless. That’s because Eidos decided to break the game if you run it on a jailbroken device. Deus Ex: The Fall checks to see if your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch is jailbroken, and if it is, the ability to shoot is removed. What players will see is the message above. It appears during the game’s tutorial, and apparently blocks progress because you have to tranquilize some guards at that point.This is ridiculous because Eidos has basically decided that everyone running the game on a jailbroken device must be a pirate. That is definitely not the case, and there will be many gamers who legitimately paid for the title who now can’t play it.By adding this limitation Eidos isn’t helping to stamp out piracy, it’s blocking gamers from playing and therefore not buying the game. It’s also doing nothing to help the publisher’s image within the gaming community.Hopefully Eidos’ response to this will be to patch the game and remove the firing limitation. And they need to do that quickly otherwise they can say goodbye to a good chunk of the sales this title would have otherwise enjoyed.
BleachBit 2.0 temporary file cleaner review by Martin Brinkmann on February 28, 2018 in Software – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 42 commentsBleachBit 2.0 is a new version of the temporary cross-platform file cleaner that is often compared to Piriform’s CCleaner application for Windows.BleachBit 2.0 is a major release; the last stable version before version 2.0 was version 1.12 released in 2016.BleachBit is configured to run checks for updates regularly. You can download the latest version of the program from the official website to upgrade the existing version, however, if you prefer that.Tip: Bleachbit supports the integration of winapp2.ini definitions. You enable the option under preference and Bleachbit downloads the additional definitions so that you can clean hundreds of additional locations and programs.BleachBit 2.0One of the major changes of BleachBit 2.0 is that the update checker uses HTTPS encryption and that the BleachBit website uses HTTPS encryption as well. This improves the security of the update process.BleachBit 2.0 ships with a bunch of new cleaning options and improvements. Users of the program can clean the site engagement history on Google Chrome and Chromium, and secure delete SQLite in the latest version.The software includes quite a few operating system specific improvements. Linux users benefit from the integrated journald cleaner, support for software categories, fixed errors and support for new deb and rpm packages for select distributions.On Windows, the secure wiping of files and handing of Unicode filenames was improved, and several issues such as the emptying of the recycle bin in preview mode, were fixed as well.You can check out the full release notes on the official program website.BleachBit 2.0 works for the most part just like previous versions of the application. Check the programs and locations that you want to clean and hit the preview button. This scans the selected locations and programs on the system and reports the findings without making any changes to them.BleachBit displays the total amount of disk space that will be freed when you run the program, and all files and locations that will be cleaned if you do on top of that. You can rerun scans to include more items, or check out the the disk space that each item occupies as well.The preferences give you options to add custom locations to the cleaning. Note that you need to select the custom option as an item for it to be included. There is also a whitelist to exclude files or locations from deletion, and an option to overwrite locations to prevent recovery.The file menu holds options to shred files or folders, and to wipe free disk space to prevent recovery of deleted files.The developer of BleachBit created a video that visualizes the development of the program from its humble beginnings in 2008 to 2018.How it stacks upBleachBit is open source software that is available for Linux, Mac and Windows devices. This is a plus when compared to the popular CCleaner application.CCleaner’s interface is more streamlined in my opinion but both programs get the job done when it comes to the removal of temporary files on supported computer systems.BleachBit supports adding folders to the application for removal, but the interface lacks options to do the same for Registry keys. You can add these manually by editing the ini file but it is not overly comfortable.I’m not a fan of the Registry cleaning tool that CCleaner ships with and don’t think it is a problem that BleachBit does not include one. The same goes for CCleaner’s other tools like the startup manager or program uninstaller. There are better programs out there such as Autoruns that handle this better.CCleaner comes with options to schedule cleanup jobs or keep some cookies which BleachBit does not support. Whether that is a problem or not depends on your use of the program.BleachBit, all in all, is a powerful program that takes the backseat (a bit) in the interface department and some cleaning options when compared to CCleaner. It is cross-platform and open source on the other hand which CCleaner is not.Closing WordsBleachBit 2.0 is a powerful program to clean temporary files created by web browsers, the operating systems, or programs that run on it. You can use it to clear browser caches and cookies, temporary files, or lists of recently run documents or files.Now You: Do you use a file cleaner?Related articlesCCEnhancer 3.0 Released, Now With BleachBit SupportCCEnhancer 4.5: HTTPS downloads, new featuresClean up your Linux system with BleachbitPrivacy Software BleachBit Deletes Temporary Files On Windows And LinuxSummary12345 Author Rating4 based on 11 votes Software Name BleachBitSoftware Category AdministrationLanding Page https://www.bleachbit.org/ Advertisement
