Isiah Scott, Boys and Girls Club of Pike and Surrounding Counties board president, addressed the council regarding the possibility of extending the Boys and Girls Club to Brundidge. Scott requested the use of the Galloway Park Community Center as the site for the Boys and Girls Club, which would meet from 3:30 until 6 p.m. Picking up the boys and girls would be the responsibility of the parents. “Students from Troy University would be available to work with the students and that would be very beneficial,” Boyd said. “Many parents would appreciate having the university students tutor their children and assist them with their homework. The university students are more familiar with the new math and other subject matter. Having a Boys and Girls Club here in Brundidge would be a great benefit.” The Brundidge City Council meets at 6 p.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of the month at Brundidge City Hall.

Its software aims for high accuracy, low latency tracking of such devices as robots, drones, and both tethered and untethered headsets.See also: Designing VR for Singapore’s smart cityEonite’s software provides 6 degrees of freedom capability while competing strongly in such areas as power efficiency, accuracy, latency, robustness and price.“Eonite Vantage Head Tracker is a fundamental requirement in the tech stack, and will be an industry-defining solution for VR/AR headsets to accurately operate in the real world,” said Eonite CEO Youssri Helmy. “With Eonite inside, virtual reality can become more affordable, easier to setup, and more immersive for users.”Some other features of the software include real-time obstacle detection, mapping through multiple furnished rooms, and capability to function in a variety of indoor lighting conditions.Built on years of researchThough Eonite was founded in 2015, its technology is built on years of artificial perception research by company founders Peter Varvak and Anna Petrovskaya.“When I began working on computer perception in 2004 with Peter, we recognized it would impact a wide range of artificial intelligence industries and enable tremendous growth in consumer experiences,” Petrovskaya said.She sees the advances in spatial interfaces like VR, MR and AR as enabling a fourth wave of computing to take hold.“Computers perceiving the real world like the human eye – that’s what it takes for these experiences to feel ‘real’ enough for common usage, and that’s the impact we’re enabling at Eonite,”she said.The Palo Alto, Calif.-based startup has raised $5.25 million in seed funding from various sources including Presence Capital, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Signia Venture Partners, Rising Tide, The VR Fund and CLI Ventures.

Govt trying to pass CWG buck on Kalmadi, says Arun Jaitley in Rajya Sabha

first_imgThe BJP on Tuesday hit out at Sports Minister Ajay Maken for blaming the NDA for Suresh Kalmadi’s appointment as Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chief.  As the debate started in the Rajya Sabha after interruptions, BJP leader Arun Jaitley called it a ‘monumental deception’ to hide the CWG mess.  Jaitley said public money was squandered under the pretext of beautification of Delhi during the Games. In a frontal attack on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, he said the prime minister overruled the PMO and the sports ministry to appoint Kalmadi as the Organising Committee chief. In fact, Headlines Today had on Monday showed the letter that the PMO wrote to the prime minister suggesting that then sport minister Sunil Dutt be made the OC chairman.  Earlier, the Lok Sabha was adjourned for the second time following noisy scenes as BJP demanded suspension of the Question Hour to discuss the CWG mess.  On Friday, Maken had said that Kalmadi was appointed by the NDA government, and UPA couldn’t do anything about it, being bound by the Host City agreement.  Maken has since stood by his statement.last_img read more

Jackets brush aside blame aim for lateseason run

Nobody likes excuses.When you are paying an average of $84 a ticket for a product that is ultimately judged on wins and losses, the last thing you want to hear is more cliché coach-speak about a “young team on the verge.”The Blue Jackets have seemingly been a “young team on the verge” for all 10 years of their existence. When does all that potential give way to production? Production, of course, is measured in playoff victories and the possibility of an eventual Stanley Cup championship.It appeared as though the answer had come last season. The Blue Jackets made the postseason for the first time in franchise history, and a single playoff victory would have gone a long way toward erasing the futility of the previous eight seasons.But one of the NHL’s “Original Six,” Columbus’ archrival Detroit Red Wings, erased those hopes with a four-game sweep of the hometown heroes. Being unceremoniously swept from the playoffs without even putting up much of a fight left a bad taste in the mouths of Jackets fans; quite the opposite of building hope for the future.To the informed, however, it still seemed a step in the right direction. In light of this season’s struggles, it now appears that the old adage applies: One step forward, two steps back.So without relying on tired excuses, what has changed?“This is a league that you don’t miss steps in. You might miss them early, but you always have to catch up,” Columbus coach Ken Hitchcock said of his team’s development from last year. “That’s what has happened with a lot of our young guys last year.”What the coach appears to be saying is that his young team overachieved in its run to the playoffs.Now that this year’s team is starting to show signs of life, Hitchcock’s plan to stick with his younger players appears to be paying off. After having gone 3-14-7 during a 24-game stretch, Columbus is now 7-5-0 over the last 12.His “gut decision” to go with a struggling Steve Mason in a recent game against Nashville is an indication that he has a plan and is sticking to it, for good or bad.The same can be said of his continued faith in other Jackets youngsters like Jakub Voracek and Derick Brassard.Many voices around the organization have speculated that a stint down in Syracuse, the Blue Jackets’ minor-league affiliate, would prove beneficial to Mason.Hitchcock disagrees.“Everybody you talk to, when a young goalie [struggles] like this, it’s finish the season, press the reset button and start over next year,” Hitchcock said of his young net-minder. “Every good goalie has gone through this: [Ed] Belfour, [Tom] Barasso, Curtis Joseph. We can’t afford reset here.”With the Olympic break looming, and a favorable schedule which finds the Jackets playing eight of 10 games at home, Hitchcock is optimistic that the playoffs are still very much a reality.“We’ve got to find a way to go 8-2 before the break to stay in the race,” Hitchcock said. “If we go 8-2, who knows how far we can take this thing.” read more

Inzaghi stunned by Sampdorias late comeback

first_imgSimone Inzaghi has expressed shock over Sampdoria’s late equaliser suggesting it’s something he’d never seen in 25 years of football.It was the club’s fourth successive Serie A stalemate, but Ciro Immobile’s controversial penalty had completed the comeback to lead 2-1 at the 96th.However, Riccardo Saponara’s acrobatic flick sealed a last-gasp equaliser at the Stadio Olimpico.“There is a bitter taste in the mouth, as the statistics clearly show we dominated the match,” Inzaghi told Football Italia.“At times we weren’t particularly sharp, but the performance was strong. We should’ve just kept the ball in the final 90 seconds and it was a serious error to give it away.SS Lazio v AS Roma - TIM CupMatch Preview: SS Lazio vs AS Roma Boro Tanchev – August 31, 2019 Lazio will host Roma to the Olimpico Stadium in the first Derby della Capitale of the 2019-20 Serie A campaign.“I’ve never seen anything like it in 25 years of football, so this is a really strange sport. Sampdoria are strong and well-organised, but we deserved to win.”Lazio spent the last five days in a training retreat to better prepare for this game after recent setbacks.“This result holds us back, because we’ll get nowhere with draws. They used to say we never played draws, now we’ve had four in a row.“Conceding a goal like that is a serious error, but we have some experienced players and others not so much. It’s time now to recuperate energy and I want a good performance in the Europa League on Thursday.”last_img read more

House of Assembly debates Mental Health signs clear on the streets of

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, June 15, 2016 – While the Mental Health bill is being debated in the House of Assembly due to modernization the Minister of Health, Premier Rufus Ewing wants to see for the law, there is a growing concern for the number of vagrants we see in down town Provo who are believed to be suffering some level of mental instability.Magnetic Media, on the weekend captured a makeshift home on the Airport road, just in front of Caicos Coin Laundromat.  Not only was a home created in the sheltered bus stop there, with old sheets, quilts and carpets but a man, known around town as Cargo was sleeping at the spot… and we might add, very peacefully.Officials say they have tried to get him to return to his house and tried to get his family to curtail him; but others tell us Cargo is stubborn.  Tourism, Social Services, the Red Cross, Police and family were all involved in the intervention; Cargo Taylor has been living on the side of the road for the past three weeks now, according to those who work nearby.The Airport Road is not only home to dozens of businesses but it is the gateway to our main Gateway – the Providenciales International Airport; as for Cargo, sadly it appears his dignity is gone as he is oblivious to the impression he was creating – and much like the smell and sight of the area, it was both bad and sad.
