NEW YORK, N.Y. – Facebook faced a day of reckoning Thursday as its shares plunged in the biggest one-day drop in stock-market history.The 19 per cent drop vaporized $119 billion of the company’s stock-market value; CEO Mark Zuckerberg saw his net worth fall by roughly $16 billion as a result. It was Facebook’s worst trading day since going public in 2012; the collapse eclipsed Intel’s decline of $91 billion in September 2000, without adjusting for inflation.The plunge followed Facebook’s warning late Wednesday that its revenue growth will slow down significantly for at least the remainder of the year and that expenses will continue to skyrocket.In a sign of just how bullish investor expectations were, though, the collapse merely returned Facebook shares to a level last seen in early May. At that point, the stock was still recovering from an earlier battering over its big privacy scandal, in which a political consulting firm with ties to President Donald Trump improperly accessed the data of tens millions of Facebook users.Now come the big questions: Is this a temporary setback, or the start of a painful new road for the giant social network? And does a similar comeuppance await other high-flying technology behemoths?Both the slower growth forecast and heavier spending reflect problems largely of Facebook’s own making.New European privacy rules, inspired in part by Facebook’s relentless mining of its own users’ data, are starting to hamper the company’s advertising business. And the increased spending aims, among other things, to prevent a replay of the fake news and propaganda that Russian agents unleashed on an unguarded Facebook in an attempt to sway the 2016 presidential election.Zuckerberg even noted during a call with analysts that “we’re investing so much in security that it will significantly impact our profitability.”Overall, technology giants — Facebook, Apple, Google, Amazon and others — have enjoyed almost unprecedented growth in revenue and stock price for years. They have seemed unstoppable, even in the face of regulatory pressure, user dissatisfaction and broader existential questions about their impact on society. Technology companies account for six of the 10 biggest companies in the S&P 500 Index.Some see the Facebook selloff as clear evidence that nothing can grow forever, especially not the world’s biggest companies, especially not at the rate of nimble, promising startups. Facebook revenue is still growing at a rate double that of Twitter. A decade ago, almost no one could have imagined that Facebook would have more than 2 billion users, much less that its family of apps — Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger — would also count members in the billions.“Nobody knows where the top is, where that growth slows down,” said Phil Bak, CEO of Exponential ETFs and a former managing director of the New York Stock Exchange who said he’s been warning investors of a potential sell-off in large tech stocks.Things could get rougher still. Those European privacy regulations, known as the General Data Privacy Regulation, or GDPR, went into effect with just one month left in the second quarter. That means Facebook could feel its effects more strongly later this year.For more than a year — ever since Zuckerberg published a 5,000 word manifesto arguing that Facebook needs to make the world a better place by bolstering civic engagement and addressing social ills — the company has seemed torn between its philosophical mission and its economic one. Wednesday may have been the first time this tension really broke into the open, probably because it threatened the one thing all investors care about: Money.Michael Connor, whose Open Mic group helps investors push tech companies to address privacy, abuse and other issues, said it’s “far too early” to see if Facebook’s efforts to improve itself will prove fruitful. But the real question, he said, is whether the company can “continue to do what they are doing in the face of criticism from Wall Street.”Siva Vaidhyanathan, a media studies professor at the University of Virginia and author of the new book, “Antisocial Media: How Facebook Disconnects Us and Undermines Democracy,” dismissed the significance of the stock plunge.“Mark Zuckerberg isn’t panicking,” he said. “The Facebook board isn’t panicking. Most of its large institutional investors aren’t panicking. They know they’re in it for the long game.”___AP technology writer Matt O’Brien contributed to this report from Providence, Rhode Island.
London – Head of government Abdelilah Benkirane, on a visit to the UK, was received on Tuesday in London by Prince Charles of Wales.The audience took place at the Clarence House, the official residence of the Crown prince of the UK.On this occasion, the head of government met privately with Prince Charles, in the presence of Morocco’s ambassador to Great Britain Chrifa Lalla Joumala. Benkirane arrived Sunday at the UK to take part in the 9th World Islamic Economic Forum slated October 29-31.
“Available social services, particularly water supply systems, are limited,” the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said. “That is leading to an increase in diarrhoea cases.”The UN World Health Organization (WHO) and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) are working to address the problem, OCHA added, noting that on the positive side the number of malaria cases are decreasing as flood-hit areas dry out. Meanwhile, 25 trucks contracted by the UN World Food Programme (WFP) crossed into Somalia today from Kenya with nearly 800 tons of food aid.Mogadishu has been suffering from increased violence since the Transitional Government ousted Islamist groups with Ethiopian help two months ago. The whole country has been riven by factional fighting among rival warlords and has had no functioning central government ever since the regime of Muhammad Siad Barre was toppled in 1991. 2 March 2007The flight of civilians from Somalia’s strife-torn capital, Mogadishu, has escalated over the past week, bringing the total number of those displaced from the city to nearly 20,000, sparking mounting concerns for their health and sanitation, the United Nations reported today.
Auctioneers hope Gianni Versace’s legacy attracts buyers to designer’s former Miami Beach home AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Jennifer Kay, The Associated Press Posted Jul 23, 2013 4:59 pm MDT MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Snake-haired, golden Medusa heads still glint from the gates, the swimming pool and flower pots at 1116 Ocean Drive, vestiges of the glamour fashion designer Gianni Versace brought to South Beach before his death on his own front steps.Though the Versace family hasn’t owned the oceanfront mansion since 2000, auctioneers hope the Italian designer’s legacy will attract bidders to the Miami Beach property when it goes up for auction Sept. 17.Serious inquiries only, please. The minimum bid is set for $25 million. To even see the property, potential buyers must sign a confidentiality agreement and prove they have the money to close a deal.Here’s what comes with the house: a swimming pool inlaid with 24-karat gold tiles, gold-plated bathroom fixtures, high walls that block the sounds on busy Ocean Drive, panoramic views of the ocean from a rooftop observatory and mosaic flooring and frescos and murals custom-made for Versace himself.Each room has been uniquely furnished by the current owner, and the furniture comes with the sale, including beds so large they need custom-made sheets.Half a dozen buyers have expressed interest since the auction was announced last week, said Lamar Fisher, president and CEO of Fisher Auction Company. “They range from very, very high-profile individuals and celebrities to international buyers from the Russian market to the South American market,” Fisher said.Their new neighbours will include thousands of tourists regularly streaming past the corner property. Many pose for pictures at its front gates, like Nicole and Daniel Francis did Tuesday.The couple works in the fashion industry in New York City and recognized the mansion as something special, even if Versace no longer lived there.“We’re big fashion fanatics,” Nicole Francis said. “It’s a Miami landmark.”Fisher noted that the mansion comes with eight designated park spaces on Ocean Drive, making for a quick getaway from the tourist traffic.“The individuals that are interested actually love the location because they can easily get to the night life of South Beach, and get right to the cruise ships where they want to go or to their yachts and also get to the airport for their private jets,” he said.It’s been officially named Casa Casuarina for more than a decade, but the property still commonly referred to as “the Versace mansion” was initially listed for sale at $125 million last year. The asking price dropped to $100 million and then last month to $75 million.Casa Casuarina operated as a private club and then as a boutique hotel until earlier this year. A bankruptcy court appointed Fisher Auction Company to put the property up for auction.Versace and an entourage of celebrity friends that included Madonna, Cher and Elton John helped revive South Beach in the 1990s from a retirement community known as “God’s waiting room” to the pulsating, almost-anything-goes party hub that attracts tourists today.The designer bought a neglected three-story, Mediterranean-style home, originally built in 1930 by Standard Oil heir Alden Freeman, and a dilapidated hotel next door in 1992 and spent $33 million on renovations. The 23,000-square-foot mansion now has 10 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a 54-foot-long mosaic pool lined with 24-karat gold tiles and an open-air courtyard.Versace was fatally shot on the mansion’s stone front steps in 1997 by serial killer Andrew Cunanan, who later shot himself as a police search closed in on him. No one inside the mansion’s gates Tuesday wanted to talk about Versace’s death, except to point out that he was slain outside its doors.“He’s everywhere here,” said Jill Eber, a Miami real estate agent working in conjunction with Fisher Auction Company on the mansion’s sale. “Versace lived here and owned it and designed it, and that’s where people are focused.”Versace’s death wasn’t the mansion’s only link to scandal. High-profile attorney Scott Rothstein owned a share in the mansion after its 2000 sale, until federal agents seized it among his other assets in their investigation into a massive Ponzi scheme. Rothstein is now serving a 50-year prison sentence.___Follow Jennifer Kay on Twitter at www.twitter.com/jnkay.
Members of OSU women’s volleyball team celebrate after a point during a match against Nebraska on Oct. 14 at St. John Arena. Credit: Jenna Leinasars | Assistant News DirectorThe Ohio State women’s volleyball team is trying to rebound following a 3-1 upset at the hands of the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday and a loss to Wisconsin at home prior to that.The Buckeyes will have two opportunities for redemption when they host back-to-back home matches this weekend at St. John Arena. OSU clashes with Rutgers on Friday and No. 10 Penn State on Saturday. The loss to the Hoosiers put OSU outside of the American Volleyball Coaches’ Association poll for the first time this season. Upcoming opponent Rutgers holds a 4-23 record and has yet to win a Big Ten match this season, while the Penn State Nittany Lions have maintained their powerhouse presence in the conference and stand at 18-7 overall. Penn State also swept the Buckeyes 3-0 the last time the two teams met on Oct. 19 in University Park, Pennsylvania.Senior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe said the team’s loss to Indiana was just the nature of the beast that is the Big Ten conference. “They played really good defense against us, and I don’t think we were able to respond,” she said. “It’s just part of being in the Big Ten. You can’t underestimate anyone, and everyone has something to offer.” OSU coach Geoff Carlston said the Buckeyes have been in a rut for the past couple of matches. Prior to Indiana, OSU took a tough loss to Wisconsin at St. John Arena by a margin of just 11 total points. “The last couple matches, we’ve struggled finding rhythm. We make two or three good plays and then we’ll miss a serve at a crucial time or we just won’t make a play,” Carlston said. “We need to be able to string those runs together.”Putting the past aside, the Buckeyes – from the newcomers to the veterans – are choosing to stay optimistic heading into weekend play. “I really believe we can do it. We’re ready,” said freshman outside hitter Bia Franklin. “We’re going to practice hard this week, and it would be really nice to (get) that revenge (on Penn State).” Sandbothe is looked at as one of OSU’s senior leaders, and the team turns to her in times of trouble. Her strategy relies on keeping everyone calm and collected in the huddle. “It’s just taking a deep breath and refocusing, letting everyone know that we’re all on the same page,” she said. “The middle is a really great time for us to reset.” Sandbothe isn’t just leading by her words. Her play is speaking volumes about her and the team that surrounds her. During the Buckeyes’ last match with Wisconsin, she locked down the OSU record for most career blocks in history with 518 rejections. Sandbothe said the record has only added fuel to her competitive fire. “Now I want to slaughter it. Now I’m going to make sure that it’s not going to be broken for a lot longer,” she said. “It (breaking a record) gives you a greater appreciation for what this program means and the fact that there are people who put the jersey on before you and there’s going to be people who put it on after you.” Sandbothe is confident that OSU can put on a strong performance this weekend. She said back-to-back Friday and Saturday matches are good for the team’s pace. There is also the advantage of playing on home court. Carlston is looking a little farther than the weekend with the NCAA tournament coming up in December. All members of the Buckeyes’ teams have mentioned throughout the season their anticipation to be in the Final Four, which will be played in Columbus at Nationwide Arena. Carlston feels that 12 out of the 15 teams in the Big Ten have the ability to make it into the NCAA tournament, and this is the time for his team to make a statement that OSU should be one of them.“For us, taking care of our business this weekend at home is important,” he said. The Buckeyes will first take on the Scarlet Knights on Friday at 7 p.m. followed by the Nittany Lions at 7 p.m. on Saturday, both at St. John Arena.

He said: “I never met with any Russian officials to discuss issues of the campaign. I have no idea what this allegation is about. It is false.”The development has been making headlines around the world, including in Russia.The Moscow Times reported that the Russian embassy in Washington refused to comment on the alleged meetings. Trump and Sessions in the Oval Office last month Source: PM/AP/Press Association ImagesTHE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S possible ties to Russia have been the subject of much speculation and controversy in recent weeks.Before he was sworn in as 45th President of the United States, the CIA found that Russia intervened in the election to help Donald Trump win – something he was reluctant to accept.Then, on 13 February, Trump’s national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned after it was revealed he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and other top White House officials about contact he had with the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, before taking office.At the time, Flynn admitted he “inadvertently briefed” Pence with “incomplete information” about his conversations with Kislyak.The latest twist in the controversy involves Attorney General Jeff Sessions. During the week, it emerged Sessions failed to divulge the fact he had met Kislyak during Trump’s campaign.The Washington Post reported he met the Russian ambassador twice last year, contradicting statements he made in Senate confirmation hearings in January.

By Aoife Barry Any terms that imply probiotic activity (i.e. imply that the bacteria in the product may be beneficial for health) are health claims and are not permitted. Thursday 7 Mar 2019, 12:05 AM Short URL Twomey explained that it is unlikely that Irish influencers will begin working with medical brands chiefly because of advertising standards in this country.“In Europe you cannot advertise prescription medications to people,” she said. “You can in the US, and there’s lots of warnings that have to go on the ads. But here you can’t advertise prescription medications to the public, [and] I couldn’t see that as something that would be a trend that would take off here.”She said that the Health Products Regulatory Authority would have a “strong role” in this area. ComplaintsThe ASAI received 107 complaints in 2018 about influencer marketing. “Not every complaint we get turns out to be about a marketing communication,” said Twomey. “We are very careful that we don’t assume unless the context is very clear that it is a marketing communication.”Consumers are engaging with the area of influencer marketing “quite extensively”, said Twomey. “We are very happy the awareness of what is required has increased substantially over the last few years.” She said that it is an issue the ASAI will continue to focus on.When content is an advertisement, it must comply with all relevant rules, including those around truthfulness and honesty. In addition, the rules for health and beauty products include rules relates to medical claims, in section 11 of the ASAI Code.There are also rules in the food and non-alcoholic beverages section of the ASAI Code relating to health and nutritional claims for food products, which includes supplements. IRISH INFLUENCERS HAVE begun promoting ‘wellness’ products on their Instagram pages – but the advertising watchdog says that any claims must be backed up by evidence.Some of the most popular products seen on Irish influencers pages include vitamin and gut-health supplements. Some are brand ambassadors for the products.One Irish influencer posted on Instagram that a gut health product – for which they are a brand ambassador – led to “non-existent” irritable bowel syndrome, stopping stomach ulcers, and greater tolerance to food, as well as improved skin and arthritis. The influencer has over 35k followers.Claims like the ones made on their post are likely to come under scrutiny by the ASAI.Health claimsRegarding wellness products, the CEO of the Advertising Standards Authority of Ireland (ASAI), Orla Twomey, told TheJournal.ie: “The type of products [promoted by influencers] would be essentially functional food supplements. There are rules which we have reflected in our code in making health and nutritional claims about food.”She said that the influencer must ensure that the effect claimed about the product must be registered and must appear on the EU register of nutrition and health claims. “If you were to say calcium has an effect on bone health, you can say it supports bone health – you can’t say it’s going to transform [your bones] into the strongest ever,” she said.The ASAI points out in its guidance that, for example, in the case of a product that calls itself a probiotic, there are no approved health claims. Share305 Tweet Email6 The European Commission has advised the FSAI that where terms like ‘live’ or ‘active’ are used to describe bacteria, these imply a probiotic function and therefore are considered to be health claims. No health claims have been approved for ‘probiotic’ and therefore terms that imply a probiotic function are not permitted.There are also no approved health claims for prebiotics. To date, there has not been a huge amount of complaints about influencers and health supplements. “But they certainly do come before our remit if the material the blogger is doing is a marketing communication,” said Twomey.When it is an ad then all the rules come into play. You musn’t mislead, you mustn’t promote unsafe practices. If you are making a health claim on a product there must be substantiation for that.She said that it is the company engaging with the blogger or influencer which has the primary responsibility in making sure the influencer does not make unsubstantiated claims about a wellness product. Twomey encourages bloggers who engage with companies over wellness products to ask where is the evidence for any claims.“If the marketing communications make general claims, there needs to be evidence that the product has that effect,” she said. “We wouldn’t be asking the blogger to go and do robust scientific tests on themselves.”She said that if the influencer makes specific claims about what the product does or has done for them, “there must be evidence that the product generally does have that effect”.Testimonials, which tend to be used in traditional media, are not evidence of a claim, said Twomey. “If product claims are made in testimonials we would require [evidence] to back it up,” she said. Twomey said that it is not surprising that influencer marketing is moving into different areas. But she said that influencers “have to be careful about what they say”.“They can’t extrapolate [an] unsubstantiated claim that a company wouldn’t,” she said.The ASAI has recently dealt with influencers and asked them to change or remove posts following complaints about the content in them.Medical devicesTwomey said the wellness trend is one “that is going to continue because we do see that trends that start in the States [spread here], apart from medicines, which won’t happen”.Indeed, Ireland has yet to follow the US, where some influencers have begun advertising medical devices.

“Ni pauvre, ni soumis” appelle les personnes handicapées à manifesterFrance – Les personnes handicapées sont appelées à manifester dans dix-neuf villes de France, dont Lyon, ce samedi 27 mars 2010. L’appel a été lancé par le collectif “Ni pauvre, ni soumis”, qui réclame des revenus équivalents au Smic pour les personnes handicapées, qui vivent souvent sous le seuil de pauvreté.NPNS est un collectif rassemblant une centaine d’associations de personnes handicapées. Il appelle à manifester pour la création d’un “revenu d’existence” pour les personnes handicapées ou invalides. Parmi les villes concernées figurent Dijon, Lyon, Marseille, Nantes, Grenoble, ou encore Bordeaux. Pas moins de 10.000 personnes sont attendues. À lire aussiVers un meilleur accès aux soins pour les personnes handicapéesLa majorité des personnes handicapées ou atteintes de maladies invalidantes vit en dessous du seuil de pauvreté, qui est de 910 euros en 2010. “Ni pauvre, ni soumis” souhaite faire réagir le gouvernement sur la situation de ces personnes.L’allocation aux adultes handicapés est de seulement 681,63 euros par mois. La personne peut également bénéficier d’un complément de ressources de 179,31 euros ou d’une majoration pour la vie autonome d’un maximum de 104,77 euros par mois. Cela reste très faible car, comme l’explique NPNS dans un communiqué, “ces personnes, déjà en situation difficile, doivent désormais payer des frais supplémentaires (hausse du forfait hospitalier, franchises médicales, fiscalisation des indemnités du travail, déremboursement de certains médicaments, hausse du coût des mutuelles, etc.), sans compter le coût de la vie qui ne fait qu’augmenter”.NPNS dénonce également la promesse présidentielle non tenue, selon laquelle l’AAH devait augmenter de 25%. En attendant, elle sera revalorisée de 2,2% le 1er avril, pour passer à 696,63 euros par mois, puis à 711,95 euros le 1er septembre.

Deanwood, a Northeast neighborhood in D.C.’s Ward 7, has been a Black enclave for over a century, but in a few years, it will become a part of the District’s gentrifying areas.Deanwood is located in the far Northeast corner of the District and is bounded by Eastern Avenue to the northeast, sharing a border with Prince George’s County, Md., and Kenilworth Avenue to the northwest, Division Avenue to the Southeast and Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue to the south. While Deanwood is one of the oldest Black neighborhoods in the District, longtime residents see a change is coming.Deanwood, in Northeast D.C., has been named one of the 10 ‘hottest’ neighborhoods in the country by a real estate publication. (Google maps)“I have lived here for 62 years,” Leo R. Hector Sr., the unofficial “mayor” of Deanwood, told the AFRO. “I see that change is coming and I think that is good. Sometimes Black people are afraid of change because we feel that we will be left out but it doesn’t have to be that way.”What makes Deanwood unique among District predominantly-Black neighborhoods is its housing stock. Many of the houses date back to the early 20th century and consists of low-density, small wood frame and brick homes with dense tree cover. This gives Deanwood a small-town character unlike other neighborhoods in the city.Deanwood’s main thoroughfares are Nannie Helen Burroughs and Sheriff Road. The Burroughs Road is named after late 19th and early 20th century Black, civil rights activist Nannie Helen Burroughs who had her nationally-known National Training School for Girls and Women in the neighborhood.While Deanwood is largely a residential area, Hector wishes it had more amenities. “I wish they would build up around here,” he said. “We need more stores around here for people to shop and not have to go to other parts of town or Maryland. The city is building up other neighborhoods, why not mine?”The District government has plans in the works for Deanwood. Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue is a part of the District Government’s Great Streets Program where grants are available to small businesses for capital improvements.The Warrenton Group, with the help of the District, is constructing Deanwood Hills, a 150-unit apartment building slated for opening later this year. The Warrenton Group also will be revitalizing the historic Strand Theater to a development retail-residential project.The Strand Theater, built in 1928, was the first theater east of the Anacostia River and served Deanwood residents for 31 years until it was shuttered. The Deanwood Metro Station, located in the western part of the neighborhood, lost its parking section on Jan. 25 when the Metro board voted to use the space for mixed-used development.The Deanwood Recreation Center, built in 2010 and at a cost of $10 million, is considered state-of-the-art in the District and is heavily utilized.Deanwood in 2017 received recognition from Redfin as one of 10 hottest neighborhoods in the country for affordable residential living. In a statement, Redfin real estate Steve Centrella said, “Deanwood is becoming more popular for a number of reasons.“First, the neighborhood has access to two Metro stations, providing quick commutes to Capitol Hill and downtown. Second, there are a large number of single-family homes that are more affordable than similarly-sized homes in other parts of the city. You can get more home for your money, while staying within the city borders.”Redfin’s literature said the median sale price on a home in Deanwood is $315,000, which is well below the District’s $545,000 average, according to Zillow.Hector said rising prices have caused some problems for residents. “There is an apartment building here where a resident was evicted,” he said. “The tenant was paying $950 a month for a two-bedroom apartment but when the new tenants moved in, the rent was $1,850.”Darlene Williams decided to move her family to Deanwood in 2006 because of affordability. “That is the only place my husband and I could afford,” Williams told the AFRO. “We weren’t trying to go to Maryland and Brookland [in Ward 5] was too high and we weren’t going to move to Ward 8.”Williams holds the distinction of having one of the few solar homes in Deanwood. She notices that Whites are moving into the neighborhood. “You see them walking their dogs,” she said. “That’s no problem. I’m not prejudiced.”Williams is the grandmother of Detroit Lions safety Tavon Wilson, who is a multi-millionaire. Wilson, who holds a Super Bowl ring with the New England Patriots, has offered to move Williams other places in the Washington metro area but she has refused. “Why should I leave Deanwood?” Williams said. “I can go a few blocks to the Deanwood Recreation Center and go to the library, swim in the pool and watch the kids play football on the field. There’s not much crime here, either.“I love it here and I am staying.”

Case fans are good at keeping your computer running at optimal temperatures. They’re also good at sucking up dust and getting themselves nice and dirty.Dust build-up on blades can seriously mess with a fan’s ability to move air. Even a thin coating can dramatically reduce efficiency. Cracking open your case and swabbing your fans down every now and then is a good idea. An even better one is replacing them with fans that clean themselves.The new D.F. Vegas fans from Enermax can actually do that (the D.F. stands for dust free). When your PC is powered on and the fans are keeping it cool, they spin one way. When you power your system on or wake it up, they momentarily spin themselves in the opposite direction at high speed to shake off any dust that’s built up on the blades.If you prefer to keep things spic and span, that’s easy to do with the D.F. Vegas fans, too. The blades pop off easily so that you can wipe them down outside of your case.These aren’t Enermax’s first self-cleaning fans. Earlier this year they unveiled the D.F. Pressure, which also reverse thrust to battle dust. The D.F. Vegas fans are different because, well, they light up like the Strip at nighttime and can be used as a general purpose fan anywhere in your case.There are actually two different Vegas models. The Vegas Duo has both red and green LEDs, while the Vegas only has blue. Both have the same lighting modes, though. You can light them up all the time, make them flash or sparkle, or put them in Vegas mode — which cycles through all three modes to attract tourists, gamblers, and Elvis impersonators.
Geek Pick: Juku 3Doodler Create+ Is A 3D Printing Pen SetWatch: Rocker Tries to Break World’s First 3D-Printed, Smash-Proof Guitar It was only a matter of time before sexbot makers commandeered 3D printing.One of China’s leading colloid model makers, DS Dolls has reportedly adopted additive manufacturing to make parts for its human-like mannequins.As reported by the Daily Star, the advanced technology helps boost production speed and efficiency, allowing DS Dolls to mass produce sexy cyborgs for customers around the world.“DS Doll is using the 3D printer to make many parts for the robotic doll prototypes,” according to “Sam” (no last name provided), who works for Cloud flagship European reseller Cloud Climax.“They are using this technology to improve the speed and processing times for making improvements to the doll robots,” he told the Daily Star. “Whilst previously casts would need to be made and them moulds, we can now input and print in a much faster time.”3D printing dates back to the early 1980s, when additive manufacturing equipment and materials were first developed. Fast forward some 30 years, and the technology has transformed the manufacturing, medical, food, and fashion industries, among others.The U.S. Marines embrace 3D printing as a quick fix; NASA plans to deliver printed parts into space; and MIT is printing color-changing accessories.DS Dolls, meanwhile, uses 3D printing to develop and stamp out specific, uniform shapes so “all parts will be 100 percent identical,” Sam said, tipping “less wastage and lower development times.”The firm can also scan full human bodies and prototype parts for replication.“This type of technology is excellent for creating new doll bodies and faces, as they can be developed from a real human,” Sam explained to the Daily Star. “It is inevitable that this technology will become a large part of making robotic products in the foreseeable future for DS Doll.”The company constructs 400 custom models each month; its premium-range mannequins sell for around $5,000.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Expedia Inc, the world’s largest online travel company, is hoping to also become the biggest player in this region after launching a new multi-million dollar brand campaign to entice Australian and New Zealand travellers to book ‘where it matters’. The new Expedia brand is built around the tagline “Where you book matters”, and also showcases its new redesigned logo for the launch of its TV Commercial. “We are seeing to break the mould with travellers and demonstrate that it really does matter where you book your travel.

Managing Director, Expedia Asia Pacific, Dan Lynn said it was key that the customer be able to trust where they book travel, and to do so their interests must be put first, which Expedia has done after removing booking fees and not charging passengers additional fees for changes or cancellations, keeping pricing honest and showcasing the best inventory they are able to offer. Locally, Expedia have implemented lower margins for near-term domestic demand, greater technology development, and introduced a call centre in Melbourne for sales and service calls.Mr Lynn said globally 2010 was a “tough year” for the travel industry, but “Australia fared a little better”. “Think we’ll see flattish performance in 2010 everywhere apart from APAC, which should return to positive territory, in about the 5 per cent range,” he said.The trend toward online bookings in Australia and New Zealand has continued to grow, with Phocuswright research revealing a 22 per cent increase in 2009 to AUD $6.8 billion. Globally, online travel agents represent approximately 39 per cent of online bookings. <a href=”http://www.etbtravelnews.global/click/21f42/” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://adsvr.travelads.biz/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=10&cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a> Source = e-Travel Blackboard: D.M
