Women thieves strike at SE Delhi banks, get captured on CCTV

first_imgNew Delhi: A group of 4 woman in their mid twenties are active in South East Delhi region which are striking at potential customers at various banks. They choose their target and slowly surround him pretending to be customers themselves.To avoid any suspicion they also carry a baby in their arms which distracts the attention of the target who has no idea that the other three are blocking the view of the others in the bank while one of them is slowly cutting the money bag with a sharp blade and stealing the money the target has brought to deposit in the bank.

Police has formed teams to identify the accused women. CCTV footage is being examined and cops are checking if the group of women identities with any gang with the similar modus operandi.

Kinect hacks now being used to drive roleplaying sex games

first_imgIt was only a matter of time before it happened, but the Kinect has already been hacked to be the interface for a sex game.The demonstration comes from ThriXXX software, a development house that makes 3D role-playing sex simulation games, who are now working on a game that allows you to grope a polygonal hussy in real time using the Kinect.The demo video — which has since been removed from YouTube — showed how the Kinect’s sophisticated gesture detection systems can be used to allow you to feel up a girl in a bikini. One imagines the prototype will expand from there to allow for even more lurid manipulation.In their statement, ThriXXX software says that “the open-sourcing of device drivers for Kinect have enabled the…device to be used directly from connected PCs operating on Windows 7…The Kinect interface provides another exciting interface option for users of the sex simulation software to control the experience in extraordinary new ways. Controller-free is the next generation of game user interfaces, allowing users to use gestures, spoken commands, or objects to control in-game action that creates a completely new sex game activity and magical experience.”Of course, whether or not ThriXXX can actually sell software based on this technology is a legal gray area, at best. “We do not have permission from anyone on any of this stuff, and have been using stuff from the hacker community to do a working prototype, following what [is] going on in that world,” ThriXXX said. “There’s been some question about whether you can use the Kinect in commercial projects,” he said. “I don’t quite understand it myself, since I’m not sure you can [control, through end-user license agreements,] hardware like that, but it’s something that needs a nice lawyer response.”My guess is Microsoft will fight this kind of stuff, if only because they don’t want the Kinect becoming synonymous with dry humping imaginary virtual girls.Read more at CNetlast_img read more

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Not DIY Friendly

first_img Samsung’s 108MP Camera Sensor Is Coming to a Smartphone Near YouHuge Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Doesn’t Have Room For Headphone Jack Since its unveiling last month, Samsung’s new flagship phablet has been racking up customers, boasting more U.S. pre-orders than previous Note handsets during the same period.But while the Galaxy Note 8 isn’t due in stores until next week, the teardown experts at iFixit already took a peek inside.Despite its “somewhat familiar layout,” the new device lives up to its promise of a bigger display and slimmer bezels. Plus, the increasingly common fingerprint sensor can now be found around back, alongside two cameras.Similarly, the Note 8 comes with “familiar components [in] unfamiliar places,” according to iFixit. Lamenting the death of Samsung’s standard Note/Galaxy S layout, the team discovered the 3,300 mAh juice pack “nearly dead-center,” surrounded by other relocated units.The USB-C port and 3.5 mm headphone jack are modular for easy replacement (iFixit)In the wake of a major battery scandal, the manufacturer has opted to stick with (pun very much intended) its glued-on charging pack, making it “unnecessarily difficult,” but not impossible, to replace.The neighboring motherboard hosts the Note 8’s four cameras: in front, an iris scanner and 8-megapixel shooter; in back, the new dual camera module, with one wide-angle and one telephoto lens.Unlike rival Apple, this smartphone comes with a 3.5 mm headphone jack—one of the many modular fixings (including the USB-C port and front-facing sensor) that can be replaced independently.Unfortunately for DIY mechanics, the negatives outweigh the positives: All repairs require removal of the fragile glass rear (and maybe front) panel—a tricky task thanks to Samsung’s heaps of adhesive.On the bright side, the only bolts in the phone are standards Phillips screws.Stylus vs stylus: Note 7 (Luke) against Note 8 (stormtrooper) (via iFixit)iFixit awarded the Galaxy Note 8 a measly four-out-of-10 repairability score, the same its predecessor earned last year.Consumers can snag an unlocked Galaxy Note 8 directly from Samsung, starting at $929.99 (or $38.75 per month for 24 months). Early-bird buyers can also take their pick of a free manufacturer gift: Gear 360 camera, 128GB memory card, or fast wireless charging accessory.Former Note 7 owners, meanwhile, are eligible for a special offer for an instant trade-in value of up to $425 when upgrading to the Galaxy Note 8.Or, register for the device—in black, purple, blue, or gold—from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon. The Note 8 is also on sale from Target and Best Buy, and is expected to hit shelves Sept. 15.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on targetlast_img read more

KSAC Property Tax Collection On Target For April To August

first_img Related Items:jamaica, ksac, Mayor of Kingston, Senator Angela Brown Burke Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppKINGSTON, Sept. 10 (JIS): Mayor of Kingston, Senator Angela Brown Burke, says property tax collections are on target for April to August.Addressing the monthly meeting of the Kingston and St. Andrew Corporation (KSAC) at her Church Street chambers, downtown Kingston on Tuesday (September 9), Senator Brown Burke attributed the development to the efforts of the property tax team in partnership with Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ), to improve compliance.She noted that the team has been engaged in a number of activities such as delivering reminder notices to property owners, making presentations at community meetings, and setting up special collection points in communities. “The efforts are paying off, and we are seeing the difference,” she stated.Mayor Brown Burke noted that collections over the next several months will be critical in ensuring that the Council remains on target. To this end, she said she has requested a list of the compliance rate per community, and will be contacting councillors and Members of Parliament as well as community-based organizations, to assist in ensuring that residents play their part.Senator Brown Burke pointed out that the compliance rate, which ranges from two to 39 per cent, is still cause for concern. “This could not be called satisfactory in the broader scheme of things…having raised the bar to where we have raised it, we intend to push higher,” she stated.At the last meeting of the Council, Mayor Brown Burke reported that the KSAC, in the first quarter of the fiscal year, met 52 per cent of its annual property tax collection target. Property taxes are used to provide essential services required by citizens, such as: solid waste collection and disposal; paying for street lights; general civic improvement; maintenance of public parks and gardens; some aspects of the Local Authorities’ administration; and where possible, the rehabilitation of the parochial road network.

The space is expanded from the much-loved Co-Op 87 with the help of nearby Greenpoint indie label, Mexican Summer Records, home to artists including Best Coast, Kurt Vile, Ariel Pink, Jessica Pratt, and Weyes Blood. News Facebook More than just an expanded Co-Op 87, the Brooklyn Record Exchange fulfills the hopes that started the shop as well as bringing together other local creative forces. Mike Hunchback and Ben Steidel began Co-Op 87 and Keith Abrahamsson and Andrés Santo Domingo founded Mexican Summer Records. All four men are behind the BRE launch.The new storefront vinyl shop shares a compound with major local music landmark called Elsewhere, a reconfigured industrial space hosts multiple venues, unexpected niches, and reconditioned office space. It also attracts a great deal of young-adult foot traffic and is part of the greater Bushwick Collective effort to enrich the local scene.”The biggest benefit is just being able to design it from the ground up,” said Seidel.

Explore Our Changing Planet On the Go With Google Earth Timelapse

first_img Where on Google Earth is Carmen Sandiego?Google Earth Takes You On ‘Voyage Through Black History’ The planet’s surface is changing right before our eyes, and there’s no better way to watch its progress (or regression) than via Google Earth Timelapse.Last updated three years ago, the global-zoomable time-lapse video now features two additional years of imagery (spanning from 1984 to 2018), as well as mobile support and visual upgrades.Through a partnership with NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Google initially released its interactive experience in 2013—enabling armchair explorers to watch the sprouting of Dubai’s artificial Palm Islands, the retreat of Alaska’s Columbia Glacier, and the urban expansion of Las Vegas.After sifting through roughly 10 quadrillion pixels from more than 15 million satellite photos, the team built 35 global cloud-free images of the entire planet—one for each year.Those images were then encoded into more than 25 million overlapping multi-resolution video titles, creating zoomable and pannable timelapses.“Scientists, documentarians, and journalists have used this dataset to help us better understand the complex dynamics at work on our planet,” Google Earth Outreach geo data engineer Chris Herwig wrote in a blog post.From coverage of the floods in Houston, Texas, to population monitoring, news outlets have brought their reporting to life with Timelapse imagery. Researchers at the University of Ottawa even published a journal article based on the Timelapse dataset.UK residents, meanwhile, can see Timelapse content features in the new BBC series Earth From Space, “about the incredible discoveries and perspectives captured from above,” Herwig said.This week’s update also adds mobile and tablet support, making it easy to explore, research, or just get lost in the beauty from wherever you are—the dentist’s waiting room, the daily commute, or the comfort of your sofa.“Up until recently, mobile browsers disabled the ability to autoplay videos, which is crucial for Timelapse (since it’s made up of tens of millions of multi-resolution, overlapping videos),” according to Herwig.But since Chrome and Firefox reinstated support for the feature (with sound muted), Google Earth could finally expand its service to on-the-go adventurers.Using Material Design, the team also introduced cleaner lines and clearer focal areas for navigating the immense dataset.“We’re committed to creating products like Timelapse with the planet in mind, and hope that making this data easily accessible will ground debates, encourage discovery, and inform the global community’s thinking about how we live on our planet,” Herwig wrote.To view the new Timelapse, visit the Earth Engine website or take a tour through YouTube.More on Earth Takes You On ‘Voyage Through Black History’Watch: This is the Longest Continuous Time-Lapse Shot From SpaceGoogle Earth Brings Beatlemania To a Computer Near YouWeird Sh*t Discovered With Google Maps Stay on targetlast_img read more

3 Ways Apple Automator Can Speed Up Your Workflow

first_img 4 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Automator is the often-overlooked Mac OS X software that is hiding away in your Applications folder. Many people just glance over this unassuming robotic icon, unaware of the power it holds.Have you ever wanted to quickly rename hundreds of files or apply the same edits to thousands of photos en masse? Or do you have to perform redundant modifications, such as format changes, or smaller bundles of files? Ever wish you could streamline and automate these processes? Well you can certainly do so with Automator. Take a look at these three interesting feats this software can perform.Related: The Best Software Tools to Run a StartupAutomatically resize photos. This is particularly useful if you’re trying to get a bunch of images ready to publish on a blog. With Automator, you can create a menu item to automatically resize a group of photos, or even save your Automator workflow as an icon. Once you drag and drop a batch of images on this Automator icon, and they will all resize to set dimensions.Get started by launching Automator. Search for the “Scale Images” action, then drag and drop it into your workflow. Type in the pixel size you wish to scale all of your images to. For an extra flourish, you can also add an additional step, so that Automator saves the images as a specific file type, like JPEG or PNG. Just drag and drop “Change Type of Images” into Step 2 of your workflow and choose your desired image format. Save the workflow and run it whenever you come across image batches that need to be resized.Create a series of custom file names. So you just came back from a business trip, and you’ve imported a ton of photos from your camera to your computer. However, the file names are gibberish, just long sequences of digits and numbers.You want to give some type of organizational meaning to the file names, but renaming hundreds of these shots individually is too time consuming. Launch Automator instead, and snag the “Ask for Finder Items” action. Drag it into your workflow and check off “Allow Multiple Selection.” This allows you to rename multiple photos at the same time.Related: Google Hangout: The Best Apps and Tech Tools to Supercharge Your Small BusinessDrag and drop the “Rename Finder Items” action into Step 2 of your workflow. Select customizable filename attributes, such as adding unique text and sequential numbers to your file name. For example, you can rename your work photos to “BusinessTrip01.jpg,” “BusinessTrip02.jpg” and so on. Once you are satisfied with the custom file names, then click on the “Run” button and select your batch of photos to rename them.Save text from PDF files. If you want to strip all the formatting from a PDF and just look at the text, you can do so with a quick, single-step Automator workflow. Drag and drop the action “Extract PDF Text” into your workflow. Choose whether you’d like plain text or rich text format. Define where you’d like to save the text, and whether you want to give it a unique filename.Automator can save you immense amounts of time when you have to perform redundant tasks on a Mac. Once you become a workflow master, you’ll be able to automate complex workflows and complete your work faster. Have fun exploring the endless batch automation opportunities of this built-in Mac software.Related: 5 Little-Known iPhone and iPad Apps for Startups September 3, 2014 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

Costa Rica tops Nicaragua 10 in ugly friendly

first_img59’ ¡Gol, Gol, Goooooooool! Kendall Waston #LaSele 1, Nicaragua 0 #VamosSele— FEDEFUTBOL (@FEDEFUTBOL_CR) December 16, 2015 One of the only true threats on goal in the first half – for either team– came when Rodney Wallace stole the ball in front of the Nicaraguan goalkeeper in the 26th minute, but was too far left to connect on a shot across goal. Earlier, a corner kick landed right in front of the net as José Mena then seemed to head the ball in for a goal, but officials ruled that Mena fouled the keeper on the play. Nicaragua technically registered one shot on goal in the entire first half, although it was a high volley that never had a chance.La Sele’s forwards looked lifeless, including Josué Martínez who plays for the University of Costa Rica and was consistently out of sync Tuesday. A promising scoring opportunity in the 35th minute flamed out because of a poor pass from Martínez.It’s hard to take much away from Óscar Ramírez’s side, which was relegated to a B-team lineup as the country’s biggest stars weren’t called up from their European clubs or the notable domestic clubs like Saprissa and Alajuelense that are still in postseason play. The only players available for Tuesday’s friendly that figure to contribute to the World Cup qualifying rounds going forward were Major League Soccer stars like Waston and Waylon Francis.Nicaragua, which is coached by Costa Rican-born Henry Duarte, ranks 97th in the latest FIFA rankings, despite already being bounced out of qualifying consideration for the 2016 World Cup. Even against a depleted Costa Rican roster, in a friendly that was mostly inconsequential for the Tico-side, the Nicas still looked outmatched.The national team is next scheduled to play in March against Jamaica in a qualifying match for the 2018 World Cup. Costa Rica has already jumped out to an early lead in its group after wins last month over Panama and Haiti. Facebook Comments The football gods would have been better off shielding their eyes from the provincial capital of Guanacaste on Tuesday night. What was already a meaningless friendly for Costa Rica going in against Nicaragua turned into an ugly, virtually uneventful match between two sides lacking talent.Costa Rica, which was without nearly every significant player the country has, toppled Nicaragua 1-0 from Liberia’s Edgardo Baltodano Stadium. But the performance on the field did little to prove wrong critics who said the game should never have been scheduled after Costa Rica’s Football Federation rushed to find a substitute once a planned match with St. Vincent and the Grenadines fell through.Kendall Waston, one of “La Sele’s” only experienced players who was called up for the friendly, scored in the 59th minute on a header by out-jumping and out-muscling Nicaragua’s undersized defenders.center_img Related posts:Costa Rica loses to Mexico on heartbreaking penalty call in Gold Cup quarterfinals Costa Rica football’s next big stars: 7 players who could shine for La Sele in the future 3 things to watch in La Sele’s Copa América prep against Venezuela Final thoughts from Costa Rica’s short-lived Copa América: Is Ramírez in the hot seat?last_img read more

Queensland lures tourists with postcard campaign

Recent flooding has not deterred Tourism Queensland from maintaining its commitment to promoting domestic tourism in Queensland, with the launch of its nation-wide postcard campaign. The advertisement, designed for print, radio and online placement, invites key markets in Sydney and Melbourne to “come and visit us in Queensland”. “Travellers will be directed through to Tourism Queensland’s website [] for a range of holiday deals,” Tourism Queensland chief executive Anthony Hayes said. “We need to get that message out now that there is no need to cancel your Queensland holiday if you already have one booked, and if you don’t, then book one today because Queensland is ready to welcome you!” Mr Hayes added that while the state faces the difficulties of recovery, much of its attractions have been unaffected and the time to visit is now. “Unfortunately the huge amount of publicity the floods have generated created an impression that most of Queensland’s tourism regions have been affected,” Mr Hayes said. “Most are in fact fully accessible and open and of those who were directly impacted, many were open again within just a few days of floodwaters receding, while others are well on the way towards resuming normal business operation.” The tourism Queensland boss stressed that the state’s attractions, from beaches to island resorts, are ready and waiting to welcome tourists from around Australia. A flood recovery task force was recently set up by the organisation to assist the industry in flood affected areas. “Despite some of the challenges we currently face, the spirit and resilience of the Queensland tourism industry has recently shown proves why Queensland really is Where Australia Shines,” Mr Hayes said.
