The “it just works” online storage service that is Dropbox has decided it’s time to stop catering just for the individual and offer something for teams of people too. That’s where the aptly named Dropbox for Teams comes in.The standard Dropbox service offers you 2GB of storage for free, 50GB for $9.99 per month, or 100GB for $19.99 per month. But that storage is limited to a single user account. If you work as a team and want to share storage for a project you had to manage it between different accounts or select a different solution altogether.AdChoices广告With Dropbox for Teams the problem is solved. Dropbox is offering 350GB of storage with a 5-user access license for the rather steep price of $795 per year. Additional users can be added for $125 each, and extra storage will cost $200 per 100GB.The storage is treated as a pooled resource all team members can access. The account can be administered centrally allowing a team leader to add or remove access, reset passwords, and handle billing. There’s also Dropbox Rewind which allows newly committed files to be rolled back if necessary to earlier versions. Security is also catered for with all files being encrypted.Update: Dropbox for Teams is currently in beta, so get in touch with Dropbox through the link below if you’re interested in taking part.Read more at DropboxMatthew’s OpinionOne of the reasons Dropbox has been so successful is the pricing structure it has used for the individual accounts. You can get a decent amount of storage for free, and then paying gets you substantially more. This thinking does not seem to have been carried over to the Teams version of the account.$800 every year for a 5-user team is a lot of money. You do get a lot of storage, but then you may not need it. Why has Dropbox not offered tiers like it does with the individual accounts? I think they’d see a lot more interest and sign-ups if they offered a 50GB Team account for $250 a year, the near equivalent of the individual 100GB plan, but with the extra users. Then tier it up for 200GB, 350GB etc.While I’m sure Dropbox for Teams is going to be popular, it is also going to be of limited value to a lot of teams who either can’t afford $800 a year, or have a lot more than 5 users, but don’t need 350GB of storage.
Back in March, we reported that NASA had raised concerns over the health of Spirit, one of the Mars rovers that landed on the red planet back in 2004. Spirit‘s problems began back in January of last year when NASA reported that the rover’s mission was concluded as a result of it getting stuck in the Martian sand. At that point, Spirit began operations as a stationary research platform until it went into hibernation in March 2010.Since then Spirit has been silent. NASA had originally hoped that Spirit might finally wake up when the rover reached its peak solar energy production on March 10th of this year, but alas there was no response. It is believed that a “stressful” Martian winter without much sunlight may have contributed to Spirit’s demise since it likely experienced colder internal temperatures than its previous six years on the planet. Some of the rover’s components are believed to have been damaged by the cold since there was inadequate solar energy to power Spirit’s survival heaters.AdChoices广告As a result, NASA has ceased all attempts to contact the rover using its Deep Space Network of antennas on Earth in addition to its two Mars orbiters. Due to the low probability that Spirit will once again establish communications these communication assets are now being transitioned to NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory (MSL). The MSL is NASA’s next generation Mars rover that is expected to launch on November 25th of this year. NASA did state that its Deep Space Network may listen for signals from Spirit when “the schedule permits.”Opportunity, an identical rover that landed on Mars three weeks after Spirit, is in much better shape and continues to explore the planet’s surface. Opportunity’s current odometry as of May 18, 2011 is over 18 miles.Read more at NASABrian’s OpinionEven with the demise of Spirit you can easily say NASA got its money’s worth out of the rover while Opportunity continues to pay dividends. It’s a bit mind boggling to think that both rovers were designed for a 90 day mission. Spirit well exceeded its warranty and Opportunity continues to add more days on to the record books.It’s a little sad to think that even Opportunity will stop getting the attention it deserves when the next generation Mars rover, MSL, lands on the red planet. Once on the surface, NASA may be a bit quicker to transfer assets over to MSL if Opportunity begins to show signs of slowing down.Spirit and Opportunity were a game changer for NASA after suffering mishaps with other spacecraft sent to explore Mars. It was for this reason NASA sent two rovers in an effort to double its chances for success. I can’t imagine anyone would have predicted how successful the rovers were going to be, let alone that they would operate for years rather than months on the surface of Mars.
Les Mayas ne prévoyaient pas la fin du monde pour 2012Selon un expert mexicain, les Mayas n’auraient aucunement prédit la fin du monde en 2012, contrairement à ce que certains historiens prétendent. Cette affirmation se base sur la découverte de calendrier allant au-delà de l’an 4.000, représentés sur des stèles retrouvées au Mexique et au Guatemala.Le film “2012”, tiré du best-seller de Steven Allen Le testament maya et de plusieurs autres livres met en avant une prédiction maya qui fixe la fin du monde au 21 décembre 2012. Une prédiction qui est d’ailleurs relayée depuis des décennies suscitant de nombreux débats. Toutefois, un historien a aujourd’hui décidé de mettre fin à la légende et de remettre en cause une fois pour toutes cette théorie. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Le monde d’aujourd’hui a une vision apocalyptique héritée de la religion judéo-chrétienne. Les Mayas non, pour eux il n’y avait pas de fin du monde, ils avaient un [système de] comptage infini des années”, explique Erik Velasquez, historien et expert des écritures mayas cité par l’AFP. A l’heure actuelle seule une pierre gravée, découverte à Tortuguero, au Mexique, évoque 2012 comme étant l’achèvement de l’ère actuelle du calendrier maya, entamée 3.144 ans avant celle du calendrier romain. Mais pour plusieurs historiens, cette date représente simplement la fin d’un cycle et le début d’une 14e période. “Nous pouvons dormir tranquille, ils évoquaient des dates de plusieurs milliers d’années plus lointaines”, a assuré M. Velasquez, poursuivant : “cela signifie seulement la fin de 13 “baak t’uunes” (“cycle” en maya), mais cela ne représente d’aucune manière la fin du [système de] comptage du calendrier maya, qui est infini, même s’il est divisé en segments. Un nouveau cycle commence, c’est tout”.Les Mayas ont créé leur calendrier dit “du long compte” pour marquer des dates marquantes de leur passé et de leur avenir, gravées sur des pierres. M. Velasquez rappelle ainsi qu’une stèle de Palenque (zone archéologique située dans le sud-est du Mexique) évoque une date bien plus lointaine dans l’avenir : l’anniversaire d’un dirigeant de cette cité maya, en 4.772 du calendrier romain.Le 10 juin 2012 à 17:23 • Maxime Lambert
Vancouver-based fitness equipment company Nautilus announced Monday it garnered $80.8 million in net sales in its third quarter, a 14.3 percent bump above earnings this time a year ago. The gains keep pace with a strong 2016 for the maker of Bowflex and other home gym equipment. Its sales top $280 million total through Sept. 30.Its net income for the quarter was $7.6 million, up from $3.7 million in 2015.A company spokesperson said the company was lifted by successful retail sales — though its direct sales faltered somewhat — and its acquisition earlier this year of Octane Fitness. Nautilus Inc. bought the elliptical manufacturer, based in Minnesota, for $115 million in January.Nautilus had made $226 million in sales at this point in 2015. In a press release, CEO Bruce Cazenave said the profits stem from the company’s focus on “profitable growth through product innovation, channel diversification and disciplined management of expenses.”It hasn’t come without breaking a sweat, however. Nautilus’ third-quarter sales over the last decade peaked in 2006 at $159.6 million before plummeting to $37.4 million in 2011 as the recession dug deeply into consumer spending.In addition to Bowflexes and Octane Fitness’ ellipticals, Nautilus is the name behind products from Schwinn Fitness and Universal Fitness. The company opened a shop in east Vancouver in January and has announced several new products this year, including a new Bowflex model and smartphone-compatible balance board.

ASA organized a coalition of farm and commodity groups to meet with USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) Acting Administrator Brandon Willis and other top RMA officials last week. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss cover crop rules in federal crop insurance.As farmers increasingly adopt cover crops, often with encouragement and technical assistance from other USDA agencies like the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), a few have found their cover crops bring them into conflict with crop insurance rules. RMA staff stressed Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack’s interest in expanding the use of covercrops, and innovations in cover crop usage including the planting of radishes and peas.They also discussed the general rationale for cover crops, which is to get the maximum benefit for the cash crop from the farmer’s decisions on cover crops. RMA staff pointed out that they made changes in cover crop rules for 2010-11 and again in 2012-13; they will make more changes as they are needed.RMA and NRCS have now set up a joint process to better communicate on these issues. More information about insuring crops planted following a cover crop is available by clicking here.
A Hillsboro, Ore., man was sentenced Monday to two years in federal prison for stealing approximately a quarter of a million dollars from a Vancouver company.Scott S. Madsen, 48, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Portland, according to a news release from the Department of Justice.Madsen was the former general manager for Adair Financial Services LLC, 1101 S.E. Tech Center Drive Suite 160.“The defendant’s crime victimized not only Adair, but all of its hard-working employees, from whose pockets this defendant stole hundreds of thousands of dollars,” said U.S. Attorney Dwight C. Holton. “Economic crimes are very serious offenses, and we will have to continue to prosecute, convict and seek prison time for those who steal money from others.”In March, Madsen pleaded guilty to one count of interstate transportation of stolen property. According to the Department of Justice, Madsen admitted that for three years he submitted $248,544 in fraudulent expense reimbursement requests to Adair. The criminal charge was based on the fact that he transported fraudulently obtained checks across state lines. After Madsen serves his sentence, he will be on supervised release for three years. U.S. District Judge Michael W. Mosman ordered Madsen to pay full restitution to Adair.

Chandigarh:Two women from Punjab’s Moga town have sought President Ram Nath Kovind’s intervention in ‘false’ cheating cases registered against them by writing a letter to him with their blood, it was learnt on Saturday. Both have demanded euthanasia for the family if they do not get justice. In the letter, Nisha and Amanjot Kaur claimed that the complainants have been threatening them and they have been living in fear. They have been urging the police to investigate the matter on priority. Deputy Superintendent of Police Kuljinder Singh said an investigation was underway. He said the duo were facing allegations of ‘kabootarbaazi’ — meaning using illegal means to settle someone abroad.
Vehicles moving at a junction in New Delhi on Jan 23, 2017.IANSAutomobile companies Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. (MSIL), Hero Motocorp and Ashok Leyland are expected to report good growth in July volume sales while others are likely to witness a fall. The data will be interesting as it will be the first month after the implementation of the goods and services tax (GST).In June, domestic car sales dropped 11.2 percent despite companies luring buyers with discounts. Therefore, on a sequential basis, the July growth rate is likely to be high for some companies.Also read: Turning around Tata Motors domestic business need of the hour: N ChandrasekaranAn estimate by brokerage Nirmal Bang Institutional Equities (NBIE) on Monday said MSIL is likely to post double-digit growth (~14 percent) in domestic car sales on a year-on-year (YoY) basis while Mahindra and Tata Motors could report a fall in their passenger vehicle sales. “We expect good growth in car and two-wheeler segments. July 2017 retail sales are expected to be weak because of strong sales witnessed in the previous month, but despite this we expect decent sales growth in case of two-wheelers and passenger vehicles as they face inventory build-up ahead of the festive season,” Gaurant Dadwal and Vivek Sarin, research analysts at NBIE said in a note.The biggest spike is expected in volume sales for MSIL on a sequential basis, though the YoY growth is likely to be modest, others could end up a fall. “In the car segment, we expect MSIL to report 14 percent YoY growth in sales, but witness a sharp MoM growth of 47 percent as the company went for plant shut down in June 2017. For Mahindra & Mahindra, we expect its automobile division’s sales to decline 4 percent YoY,” they wrote in their note.Tata Motors and Ashok Leyland are expected to post around 10 percent growth in their commercial vehicle (CV) sales while passenger vehicle volumes could witness a decline for Tata Motors.In the case of two-wheelers, Hero Motocorp and TVS Motor Company are likely to report around nine percent growth while Bajaj Auto could end up with a flattish trend, according to the analysts. Nirmal Bang Institutional EquitiesAt around 12.40 pm, shares of MSIL were trading 1.23 percent higher at Rs 7,715.80 apiece, Tata Motors was up 0.29 percent higher at Rs 447.60, Ashok Leyland was almost flat at Rs 109.40 and Hero Motocorp was up 0.23 percent higher at Rs 3,640.
That is exactly what the 4th Delhi International Jazz Festival had in store for the city’s music lovers as they flocked to Nehru Park braving rain and wind to witness the jazz extravaganza.The first day of the three-day long festival saw jazz lovers gathering together at the venue defying the rain-gods who failed to dampen their spirits. The highlight of the day was the performance by Ari Roland Jazz Quarte, an accomplished jazz quartet from the USA. Inspired by jazz music from 1930’s to 1950’s, this group played their interpretation of pieces by jazz legends such as Billie Holiday and Charlie Parker. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The ensemble had the crown singing to the famous song Summertime and also played a rendition of a jazz version of Lata mangeshkar’s Ae mere dil-e-nadaan. Hungary’s Smarton Trio and Delhi’s Black Slade also played their own interesting pieces.The second and the third day only saw the crowd pleasantly germination on the grounds with some spectacular pieces played by the Columbian band Tres Butacas, Poland’s Obara Quartet , France’s Mina Agossi Trio, Joe Alvarez / Trident Jazz Trio from Mumbai, Canada’s PJ Perry, Korea’s Modern Han and Spain’s Ximo Tebar and IVAM Jazz Ensemble.Executed in an excellent manner by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) with pleasant lightings and availability of barbecue and a dozen food carts, this year’s annual Jazz Festival has only heightened our exceptions for the coming year’s jazz festivities.
2 min read After nailing a backflip last fall, Boston Dynamics’ humanoid robot Atlas has been learning some new tricks of the parkour variety.The Softbank-owned robotics company just posted a short YouTube video showing off Atlas’ newest feats. In the 30-second video, the robot hops over a large log before gracefully scaling three 15-inch offset platforms with ease.Check out the robot’s fast footing for yourself in the video below. Take note how it’s able to land on one foot, then transfer to the other.”The control software uses the whole body including legs, arms and torso, to marshal the energy and strength for jumping over the log and leaping up the steps without breaking its pace,” Boston Dynamics wrote in the video’s description. The robot uses computer vision technology to “locate itself with respect to visible markers on the approach to hit the terrain accurately.”Boston Dynamics calls Atlas “the world’s most dynamic humanoid.” The robot stands at 4 foot 9 inches, weighs 165 pounds, has 28 joints and can carry a payload up to 24 pounds. Outfitted with a myriad of stereo vision, range sensing and other sensors, Atlas can travel on rough terrain, keep its balance when shoved and get up if it falls. The robot is also capable of dong 180-degree jumps and landing a backflip with the take-off and landing platforms at different heights.Its athleticism is impressive, no doubt, and a bit unnerving.”Boston Dynamics are basically creating the robots that will one day eradicate human kind,” one commenter wrote.Another commenter summed up what most of us are probably thinking right now: “We’re all f**ked.” Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

The team’s findings, being published in the journal The Lancet, also reveal a pathway leading from activation of that structure — the amygdala — through elevated immune system activity to an increased incidence of cardiovascular events.”While the link between stress and heart disease has long been established, the mechanism mediating that risk has not been clearly understood,” said Ahmed Tawakol, M.D., co-director of the Cardiac MR PET CT Program in the MGH Division of Cardiology and lead author of the paper. “Animal studies have shown that stress activates bone marrow to produce white blood cells, leading to arterial inflammation, and this study suggests an analogous path exists in humans. Moreover, this study identifies, for the first time in animal models or humans, the region of the brain that links stress to the risk of heart attack and stroke.”The paper reports on two complementary studies. The first, conducted at MGH, analyzed imaging and medical records data from almost 300 individuals who had positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) brain imaging, primarily for cancer screening. All scans used a radiopharmaceutical called FDG that both measures the activity of areas within the brain and also reflects inflammation within arteries. All participants in that study had no active cancer or cardiovascular disease at the time of imaging, and each had information in their medical records on at least three additional clinical visits in the two to five years after imaging. The second study, conducted at the Translational and Molecular Imaging Institute (TMII) at ISMMS in New York, enrolled 13 individuals with a history of post-traumatic stress disorder, who were evaluated for their current levels of perceived stress and received FDG-PET scanning to measure both amygdala activity and arterial inflammation.Among participants in the larger, longitudinal study, 22 experienced a cardiovascular event — such as a heart attack, stroke or episodes of angina — in the follow-up period; and the prior level of activity in the amygdala strongly predicted the risk of a subsequent cardiovascular event. That association remained significant after controlling for traditional cardiovascular risk factors, and after controlling for presence of symptom-free atherosclerosis at the time of imaging. The association became even stronger when the team used a more stringent definition of cardiovascular events — major adverse cardiovascular.Amygdalar activity was also associated with the timing of events, as those with the highest levels of activity had events sooner than those with less extreme elevation. Greater amygdalar activity was also linked to elevated activity of the blood-cell-forming tissue in the bone marrow and spleen and to increased arterial inflammation. In the smaller study, participants’ current stress levels were strongly associated with both amygdalar activity and arterial inflammation.Co-senior author Zahi A. Fayad, Ph.D., vice-chair for research in the Department of Radiology and the director of TMII at ISMMS in New York, said, “This pioneering study provides more evidence of a heart-brain connection, by elucidating a link between resting metabolic activity in the amygdala, a marker of stress and subsequent cardiovascular events independently of established cardiovascular risk factors. We also show that amygdalar activity is related to increased associated perceived stress and to an increased vascular inflammation and hematopoeitic activity.”Tawakol added, “These findings suggest several potential opportunities to reduce cardiovascular risk attributable to stress. It would be reasonable to advise individuals with increased risk of cardiovascular disease to consider employing stress-reduction approaches if they feel subjected to a high degree of psychosocial stress. However, large trials are still needed to confirm that stress reduction improves cardiovascular disease risk. Further, pharmacological manipulation of the amygdalar-bone marrow-arterial axis may provide new opportunities to reduce cardiovascular disease. In addition, increased stress associates with other diseases, such as cancer and inflammatory conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis. So it will be important to evaluate whether calming this stress mechanism produces benefits in those diseases as well.”For more information: www.thelancet.com ReferencesTawakol, A., Ishai, A., Takx, R.A.P., Figueroa, A.L., et al. “Relation between resting amygdalar activity and cardiovascular events: a longitudinal and cohort study,” The Lancet.

While fighting the militant group is Kabul’s responsibility, Iran would consider assisting the effort if the Afghan government “feels that it needs the support of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he said.

It sends mostly agricultural products to Iran, and receives fuel, concrete and other construction materials, and home appliances.A nuclear deal could allow trade in previously off-limits industries such as oil, banking and insurance.“We want stability in Afghanistan, strong central government and economic development. If we want to neutralize and decrease the threats that Afghanistan and the region are facing, we have no solution but collective cooperation between Afghanistan and other countries from the region and beyond,” he said.Copyright © The Associated Press.

This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. “The events during recent decades have made it crystal clear for us that the challenges and threats in Afghanistan are not going to stay in Afghanistan; they are threats for other countries as well,” Bahrami said in an interview last week. “When we talk about terrorism and extremism, these are not going to remain within the borders of Afghanistan. Daesh and the Taliban . are common threats and the solution is collective cooperation.”Daesh is the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group, which has had a creeping presence in Afghanistan for much of this year. Officials believe most militants claiming to be Islamic State fighters are former Taliban disillusioned by that group’s lack of progress in almost 14 years of insurgency.The security situation in Afghanistan has deteriorated since most U.S. and NATO combat soldiers withdrew last year, handing security responsibility over to Afghan forces.On the nuclear issue, world powers and Iran are hoping to clinch a deal by Tuesday, setting a decade of restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program and granting Iran significant relief from international sanctions.The deal would boost cross-border trade, benefiting Afghanistan’s moribund economy which has been hard hit by the withdrawal of foreign troops and international aid groups. Economic development, Bahrami said, would help improve security. 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall

Talks between Total and Eni and the government to explore Block 7 of Cyprus’ EEZ are at an advanced stage and the announcement of an agreement is only a matter of time a government source told state broadcaster CyBC, it announced on Sunday.According to the same source the results seen in the Calypso are expected to be similar to those in block 7 and the energy giant has asked for rights to the whole field.Meanwhile, according to the CyBC a study carried out in Texas points to further large finds expected in the Cyprus EEZ.In October the government asked for interest in Block 7 from companies already working in neighbouring plots.Energy Minister Giorgos Lakkotrypis said at the time that this option had been chosen instead of launching another licensing round because “there are particular geological reasons related to the Calypso discovery.”The Calypso field is located in block 6 where Italy’s ENI carried out an exploratory drill early this year and is believed to hold between six and eight trillion cubic feet.In February ExxonMobil announced a gas find estimated between 5-8 trillion cubic feet (tcf) in an offshore field inside the island’s exclusive economic zone.The discovery was made in the Glafcos (Glaucus) 1 well in Block 10 of the EEZ.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboola
