It was a surprise for the 24-year-old newbie at the Vancouver Police Department, who expected to ride shotgun for a day or two to gather his bearings. But Sgt. Jim White, who’s been training incoming officers for more than a decade, knew better.“This isn’t a spectator sport,” White said. “You’re up to your eyeballs from Day One.”Price is one of nine new hires at the Vancouver Police Department. Some, like him, come straight out of the police academy in Burien, while others hail from law enforcement agencies around the U.S. The agency hasn’t been fully staffed since 2002 due to Baby Boomer retirements, resignations and a couple of deaths. It has three more vacancies it plans to fill.Read the full story here.Land Bridge, five years old, draws people to crossroads, meeting placeHer long braids bouncing with each step, Tyese Arthur danced an American Indian “circle dance” Saturday morning with about a dozen other members of the N’chi Wanapum Canoe Family.

The Galaxy Note 10 signals the death of the headphone jack on

first_img Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross. Here’s how to clean it Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy? 21 Photos We can’t pour one out for the 3.5-millimeter audio jack just yet because brands like LG and Motorola still have them on new phones. Motorola removed the headphone jack from its Moto Z phone in 2016 only to bring it back on this year’s Moto Z4. But having Samsung remove it from the Note 10 is like turning the first page of the last chapter of a book. It’s now inevitable that most phones will never have them again.The headphone jack was one of the longest lasting and most widely used standards in consumer goods and gadgets. You can plug the same pair of headphones into a Galaxy Note 9 that you can into an iPhone 6S, Nintendo Switch, Mac or PC laptop as well as literally hundreds of other devices. Decades before the iPod and the rise of smartphones, the only dongles needed for headphones were either a quarter-inch adapter for higher end stereo systems or a 2.5-millimeter adapter found in small electronics such as a pocket transistor radio. See it Mentioned Above Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (128GB, ocean blue) See It 32 News • Grab an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 9 for $719 There isn’t a headphone jack on the Galaxy Note 10 and USB-C dongles are sold separately. Sarah Tew/CNET When the Galaxy Note 10 was announced on Wednesday, Samsung talked about its new design, upgraded cameras and even introduced a second, larger model called the Note 10 Plus. But one thing that was never mentioned (aside from the Galaxy Fold) was the fact that there was no longer a headphone jack on the Galaxy Note. A slide shown across the cavernous screen of the Unpacked event stage showed the bottom of the Note 10 with its USB-C port, S-Pen, and speaker grill. Absent were any signs of a headphone jack. If the Galaxy Note 9 launched without one a year ago, this would have been huge news. But in 2019, when Apple doesn’t sell a single new iPhone model with a headphone jack and companies like Google, OnePlus and Huawei have removed them from their flagships, it’s not surprising that the Galaxy Note 10 doesn’t have one. More importantly, this move by Samsung signals the end of the phone’s headphone jack as we know it. I just wish there was an equally universal standard replacing it that was also affordable. Galaxy Note and Note 10 Plus are here to wow you • Comments Apple 10:55 Samsung Event At Walgreens, you can snag a pair of Bluetooth neck sport earbuds for $16. I can’t imagine they sound as good as AirPods, which have decent audio quality but aren’t great. You could literally buy a dozen pairs of Walgreens cheap-o Bluetooth earbuds for the cost of a single pair of AirPods. Do AirPods sound 12 times better? Probably not.But let’s go back to Samsung’s Unpacked event on Wednesday. The company claimed the decision to not include a headphone jack was to free up physical space inside the phone for more battery capacity. Samsung also said that 70% of Galaxy S and Note owners didn’t use the headphone jack as more people shift toward wireless earbuds. But let’s take a moment and salute the significance of Samsung finally retiring the headphone jack. Since its debut in the 1950s, this small piece of technology has had a pretty good run. $799 Sprint See It Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus look incredible Mobile Phones $999center_img Dongles and adapters are now commonplace especially if you hope to use the same pair of headphones on multiple devices. And as annoying as dongles are, the inconvenience of using them obscures the fact that there isn’t a new single universal standard being adopted by companies in lieu of the headphone jack.Apple’s wired earphones have a lightning connector on them while nearly all Android phones use either USB-C headphones or a USB-C dongle. But USB-C isn’t the same across phones because at some point audio needs to be converted from a digital signal into an analog one. Sometimes that happens within a smartphone, as with the LG G8 and V50 which both have a built-in 32-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC). Other times it can happen in the dongle itself. To complicate things further, some phone makers have introduced proprietary features in their USB-C port. HTC’s noise-cancellation features, for example, mean the USB port is only compatible with an HTC dongle. And I won’t even get into active or passive adapters. Then there’s Bluetooth. Everything, even my toothbrush, has Bluetooth. So it’s definitely universal. And it could be a good alternative to the 3.5-millimeter jack. It definitely gets bonus points for eliminating cables. But the problem with Bluetooth headphones isn’t necessarily the connection or audio quality, which seems to be improving every year. It’s the price.Apple AirPods cost $199 — the case alone costs $79. Google has Pixel Buds, but those cost $159. And Samsung has its Galaxy Buds which cost $130. But where’s the “cheap” pair of Bluetooth headphones that Apple or Samsung includes in the box?

Sony Crammed a 9Inch Touchscreen Into a SingleDIN Car Stereo

first_img Aston Martin Will Build You Your Very Own Supervillain LairHyundai Launches First Car With a Solar Roof Stay on target Nowadays, new vehicles are rolling off production lines with massive touchscreen infotainment systems. Sony wants you to be able to enjoy a similar in-car experience, even if you only have a limited amount of space.Sony recently added the XAV-AX8000 to its product listings, and it’s noteworthy for a few reasons. For starters, it’s compatible with both Android Auto and Apple’s Car Play. It also boasts an expansive 8.95-inch touchscreen display.The best part, however, is that the XAV-AX8000 does it all in a package that fits into a single DIN opening. Sure, you could achieve a similar effect by installing one of those vent-mount tablet holders in your 1982 Cavalier (the car yours truly learned to drive on)… but Sony’s receiver will look way more impressive.The XAV-AX8000 lets you navigate with Apple CarPlay. (Photo Credit: Sony)The XAV-AX8000 can pump 55 watts to four channels and you can position the display exactly how you want it thanks to Sony’s three-way adjustable mount. It’s compatible with most back-up cameras, because you don’t always need to use a screen this size to ogle album artwork or tapping through apps.Speaking of apps, Sony knows that some of your favorites don’t yet play nicely with Android Auto. To bridge the gap they’re adding support for AbaltaTech’s WebLink tech, which lets you mirror supported apps to a compatible in-dash receiver.The XAV-AX8000 lets you use Google Maps with Android Auto. (Photo Credit: Sony)The AX8000 is a follow-up of sorts to Sony’s XAV-AX5000, though, as Android Police notes, that model is a double-DIN unit with a display that’s three inches smaller. The 5000 is also quite a bit cheaper. Right now it retails for about $350.The XAV-AX8000, on the other hand, is going to arrive with a street price of around $600. It’s a bit steep, sure, but not bad when you look at similar models that are available right now.Alpine’s single-DIN ILX-F259 also features a 9-inch display and it sells for $595 — but it only delivers 18W per channel. Pioneer’s AVH-3500NEX sells for $50 less, but it does 14W per channel and the display is 2 inches smaller.Watch: Tesla Adds ‘Cuphead’ to Video Game CatalogueMore on Geek.com:New Tire Design Converts Friction Into ElectricityNew EV Platform Shoves Everything But the Battery Inside the WheelFor $170,000 You Can Buy Your Very Own Solar Carlast_img read more

New Zealand aims to boost domestic tourism

first_imgA new group has been entrusted with the responsibility of discovering ways to get New Zealanders to travel in their own country to boost domestic tourism spending by $9 billion in 10 years.Tourism leaders have collaborated on the Domestic Travel Strategy with the aim of growing its value from $13.4 billion to $22.6 billion by 2025.“No one has a single responsibility for growing that domestic tourism market so that’s why we have brought the interested parties together. The way to succeed in growing the domestic travel market is by taking an aligned approach, by getting a line across the industry as to how we can grow the size of that domestic pie,” said Tourism Industry Association Chief Executive Chris Roberts.According to Roberts, encouraging New Zealanders to travel locally should smooth out the peaks and troughs that affected many operators. Domestic tourism will not only boost the regional economies but will also rejuvenate tourism which suffered stagnation after the global financial crisis in 2008.“Right now there is a lot of focus on how well New Zealand is doing in attracting international visitors. We are seeing very, very strong growth from our visitors overseas. Domestic tourism gets forgotten in that picture but it remains incredibly important and rather than just leave it to plod along we want to find ways to stimulate it and really maximise the benefit that New Zealand can get out of the economic activity that domestic travellers generate,” he added.last_img read more

ComplianceEase Launches FloodAnalyzer

first_imgComplianceEase Launches FloodAnalyzer ComplianceEase, a provider of automated compliance solutions to the financial services industry, announced that it has launched a new solution that helps mitigate risk by providing flood zone determination services.FloodAnalyzer independently identifies a property’s flood-zone status and performs comprehensive analysis using the most current Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Flood Insurance Rate Maps and Flood Hazard Boundary Maps.Two levels of certification are offered, including Basic Flood Certification and Life of Loan Flood Certification. Basic Flood Certification provides a single, fixed-in-time status of a property’s flood zone with findings that are based on continuously updated data outlining the risk of flood-zone exposure. Life of Loan Certification includes all of the findings in Basic Flood Certification along with an alert of flood zone status changes for a property, flood zone status tracking based on the changes to the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for the life of the loan and monitoring of FEMA flood map revisions and National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) community participation status changes.“Missing flood certs continue to be a common pain point for clients especially when the defects create loan suspensions and even make the loan unsalable,” said John Vong, President of ComplianceEase. “FloodAnalyzer addresses this need directly by being able to retrieve flood status information with the speed and accuracy needed to close loans in today’s post-TRID environment.” May 3, 2016 612 Views ComplianceEase FloodAnalyzer 2016-05-03 Staff Writercenter_img in Headlines, News, Technology Sharelast_img read more

and discharge the functions of the Central Government to the extent delegated to him from time to time by the President is neither illegal nor unconstitutional" The Bench held that it was mandatory for any decision taken by the Council of Ministers to be conveyed to the LG even if the decision has been taken regarding a matter about which the Legislative Assembly has the power to make laws Excerpts of judgment as published in The Hindu said the Court concluded that "On a reading of Article 239 and Article 239AA of the Constitution together with the provisions of the Government of

it does not dilute theapplication of Article 239 in any way Even if Kejriwal appeals against this verdict in the Supreme Court he cannot be sure that the SC will rule in his favour After all it was he

wondered what is it about kheer that makes it such an endearing sweet dish Aside the fact that almost anyone can make it what really works in favour of this ancient sweet dish – which even Ayurveda recommends in its list of happy food for good health – is that it is an extremely versatile dish You can make a kheer out of most of the fruits and vegetables known to the culinary world – from the famous apple kheer to bottle gourd to jackfruit and even almond that is usually used as a garnish In fact kheer remains the only dish that even has had a meaty side to it like Potega and blancmange which many believe were the dishes that led to the origin of kheer as we know it today Romans used it as a stomach coolant and often used the rice pudding as a detox diet The Persians who introduced firni (yet another variation of kheer) in India were also said to be rather fond of this sweet dish In fact they were the first ones to introduce the use of rose water and dry fruits in the dish which till then was made by boiling rice first and then adding milk that could make the dish smooth enough to swallow yet with a little bite that made it the perfect meal The creation of famous Shola a rice pudding specialty from Iran and Afganistan which can be had both as a savory or a rich sweet dessert made with saffron and rosewater was a variation of the kheer Much like the sheer brinji which many believe revolutionised the concept of kheer by introducing a wide range of flavourful additions like the kewra essence raisins cardamom cinnamon almond pistachio and the famous edible gold leaf In fact with sheer brinji kheer which till then remained a hot porridge dessert began to be served cold Neighbour China too has its own version of kheer which is made of fruits soaked in honey Called the eight jewel rice pudding it was a celebratory dish in the Ming Dysnasty and was prepared by cooking the fruits in a wide bottom pan in layers Once they are cooked sweetened glutinous rice is poured on top The pudding is then steamed for several hours so that the rice breaks down into a homogenous mass This was said to be the first cake variation of the predominantly porridge dessert until the 17th century when in Europe the dish turned into a baked dessert with the introduction of egg and nutmeg In fact baked rice pudding is said to be a staple during Shakespear’s time The book Dining With William Shakespeare by Madge Lorwin reprints an original recipe from Thomas Dawson’s The Good Huswifes Jewell (1596): “To Make a Tart of Ryse…boil your rice and put in the yolks of two or three Egges into the Rice and when it is boiled put it into a dish and season it with sugar cinnamon ginger butter and the juice of two or three Oranges and set it on the fire again” So how did this oldest and most popular sweet dish originate And why in spite of its global presence as early as the medieval times it’s often referred to as the Indian sweet dish While it has been proven that kheer was a part of the ancient Indian diet thanks to its mention in Auryveda and the fact that rice arrived in India much before it did in Europe and neighbours around who were introduced to this life saving kernel courtesy the Arabs and the Spice Route much later very little is known as to when the first kheer was prepared or its story of origin The first mention of kheer which historians say was derived from the Sanksrit word kshirika (meaning a dish prepared with milk) is found in the fourteenth century Padmavat of Gugarat not as a rice pudding but a sweet preparation of jowar and milk Back then using millets in pudding was quite common Unlike the West where nutmeg became a later addition to flavour the kheer the Indian version always had the use of spice – prominently cinnamon or cardamom This may have been to balance the sweet-bitter jaggery or fruits as sugar was still an unknown ingredient in India However that didn’t stop India from having its very own variations of this simple sweet dish like the now popular payasam which is thicker and richer than the kheer But the real popularity of kheer was accounted to its religious association and temples Rice was said to be a part of all religious function during the Chola dynasty that upheld rice for its life sustaining qualities And in that way kheer became an important part of all religious rituals Of course the shwet (white) colour which was seen as a symbol of purity and divinity also worked in its favour The records of Jagannath Puri talks about how the kheer was tweaked further to create the famous kheer prasad Kheer in fact played a major role in the construction of yet another famous ancient India landmark the Konark Temple Legend has it that the foundation of the temple which had to be ahead of the anchorage area in the sea could not be laid after many attempts Everytime a stone was thrown in the water it would drown without a trace When the project was almost shelved the chief architect’s son finally came out with the solution He used a bowl of warm kheer to show how a bridge could be build to the point so that a foundation can be laid He used small rice balls in warm milk to show his point That day that little boy not only ensured that the Konark Temple was made which was constructed on the same lines but also discovered a new form of kheer called the gointa godi kheer which today is one of the state’s signature sweet dishes Such was the flavour of this dish that post the Kalinga War it was one of the evening staples in Ashoka’s palace The best payasam is found in the temples of Guruvayoor and Ambalappuzha In the Ambalappuzha temple payasam is served as part of a tradition based on an ancient legend The legend states that Lord Krishna took the form of an old sage and challenged the great king who ruled over that region to a game of chess Being a true chess player and a master of the mind game’s tricks the king gladly accepted the sage’s invitation Asking what the sage wanted in case he wins the game the king remained bedazzled by the sage’s request: an amount of rice grains for each square of the chess board each pile having double the number of grains than the previous pile Naturally the king lost and since then the tradition of pyasam being distributed free in the temples started RECIPE Temple Kheer Ingredients 2 tablespoons ghee 3/4 cup long grained
