The game show episode aired on January 29, 2018.(Photo courtesy of Joni Beckham)If you are from rural Alaska, winning on the television game show “The Price is Right” carries a price tag they don’t tell you about on the show, as a Bethel resident recently learned when she won big on the program.Listen nowWearing a blue, flowered qaspeq, Joni Beckham earned $63,000 worth of prizes as a Double Showcase Winner. The episode aired on Monday, but was filmed months ago in early November. Beckham is a nurse at the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation. As she spun the famed wheel, she gave a shout-out to Bethel and her YKHC co-workers.“I want to say hi to my babies,” Beckham said, “Kennedy, Kayla and Kyler, and my husband, of course, and all my co-workers at my local hospital in Bethel. Hi, guys!”“Hi, everybody,” television host Drew Carey added.Beckham’s prizes include a trip for two to Thailand, two cars, a basketball arcade game, a washer and dryer, a refrigerator and more. But to get all her prizes to Bethel, Beckham says, the show is making her pay the shipping from the Lower 48, except on the cars. The show will deliver as far as Anchorage. According to Beckham, the show will not allow her to accept the monetary value of her winnings.last_img read more

20 killed at shooting rampage at Las Vegas concert

first_imgLas Vegas Metro Police and medical workers stage in the intersection of Tropicana Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard South after a mass shooting at a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip in Las Vegas. Photo: AFPA gunman opened fire at a country music festival on Las Vegas Strip on Sunday, killing at least 20 people and wounding more than 100 others before the suspect was killed by police.Police described the suspect as being a local Las Vegas man who acted alone, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said at a briefing.But authorities were seeking an Asian female who police described as a companion of the suspect, he said.They said that rumours of other shootings in the area were false. Off-duty police were believe to be among the victims.Witnesses on social media said the shooting broke out on the last night of the three-day Route 91 Harvest festival, a sold-out event attended by thousands and featuring top acts such as Eric Church, Sam Hunt and Jason Aldean.U.S. media, including Fox News, reported that Aldean was performing around 10:45 p.m. local time on Sunday when the rampage began but that he had been bundled safely off stage at the event outside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in the Nevada gambling mecca. CNN reported all the artists were safe.Las Vegas is an internationally renowned major resort city, known primarily for its gambling, shopping and entertainment.Police have disclosed no information that would suggest a motive for the shooting or revealed the identify of the suspect.Even so, the rampage was reminiscent of a mass shooting at a Paris rock concert in November 2015 that killed 89 people, part of a coordinated attack by Islamist militants that left 130 dead.last_img read more

Adapteva 99 parallel processing boards targeted for summer

first_img Citation: Adapteva $99 parallel processing boards targeted for summer (2013, April 22) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-04-adapteva-parallel-boards-summer.html “We don’t have time to wait for the rest of the industry to come around to the fact that parallel computing is the only path forward and that we need to act now. We hope you will join us in our mission to change the way computers are built,” they had said when appealing earlier for support. The Lexington, Massachusetts, company has now announced they built the first Parallella board for Linux supercomputing. They made the announcement at the Linux Collaboration Summit in San Francisco earlier this month. (The summit is a gathering of core kernel developers, distribution maintainers, ISVs, end users, system vendors and various other community organizations.) The Linux distribution being used is Ubuntu 12.04 © 2013 Phys.org Adapteva’s board is the size of a credit card. This comes with a dual-core ARM A9 processor and a 64-core Epiphany Multicore Accelerator chip. Parallela’s details include 1GB of RAM, two USB 2.0 ports, a microSD slot, and an HDMI connection. Active components and the majority of the standard connectors are on the top side of the board. The expansion connectors and microSD card connector are at the bottom side of the board.Olofsson said the company’s first audience target is developers. “We need to make sure that every programmer has access to cheap and open parallel hardware and development tools,” said an Adapteva program note for the Linux event. Massively parallel computing will become truly ubiquitous once the vast majority of programmers and programs know how to take full advantage of the underlying hardware They see a critical need to close the knowledge gap in parallel programming. They said their targeted our second tier are the people who just want an awesome computer for $99.Platform reference design and drivers are now available. Explore further Information technology needs fundamental shift to continue rapid advances in computingcenter_img The processor board running on Linux is called Parallella. According to the Kickstarter page, pledges totaled $898,921 from 4,965 backers when Adapteva set its goal for funding. The company decided to go through the crowdfunding route in order to produce the Parallella boards in volume. They sought funding for adequate tooling to accommodate volume, to make this board effort viable, to get the platform “out there.” The company’s hurry-up drive on making parallel processing access easier for more people has a sense of urgency because the company wants to speed adoption of parallel processing in the industry. Founded in 2008, the company’s chip technology has gained traction with government labs, corporate labs, and schools but getting large corporations to buy into parallel computing is challenging. They were convinced that the only way to create a sustainable parallel computing platform was through a grass roots movement. The company founder, Andreas Olofsson, said that parallel computing is the only way to scale to energy efficiency, performance, and cost. Systems, he stated, need to be parallel and they need to be open “Our 99 dollar kit is going to be completely open,” he said, and the Parallella open platform will educate the masses on how to do parallel computing. More information: www.parallella.org/2013/04/02/ … a-hardware-platform/www.parallella.org/2013/04/16/ … -name-is-parallella/ (Phys.org) —The semiconductor technology company Adapteva earlier this month featured its parallel-processing board for Linux supercomputingts at a major Linux event, and the board is targeted to ship this summer. The board will be going out to those who pledged money in last year’s Adapteva Kickstarter campaign and to other customers. Not a minute too soon. To hear the story of computing as Adapteva tells it, the future of computing is parallel. Big-data and other demands pose a processor challenge and Adapteva recognizes a problem in energy efficiency that is calling for action.

Paris attacks shift spotlight back on security

first_imgFriday’s attacks in Paris have once again put the spotlight on security in Europe, especially in France, as terror groups seem to be increasingly able to strike anywhere, anytime, at will.Despite a heightened security environment in preparation for the climate change summit – COP21 – later this month when several heads of state and government are expected to arrive in Paris, such an event occurred.There had been a lot of chatter heard by intelligence agencies here that the terrorists, suspected to be mainly from the Islamic State (IS), were planning something big, either just before or during the summit when over 40,000 persons, including around 50 heads of states would arrive from around the world. Also Read – Gateway of criminal justiceThe French government had visibly ramped up the security in Paris and the major cities of the country, with all important railway stations and airports being patrolled by army units.The surveillance of suspects within France, as well as outside, had been upped and borders were being monitored very closely. As many as 30,000 security personnel are believed to have been deployed in order to secure the French capital.Yet, the attackers managed to carry out a dramatic attack, duplicating the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai, with similar elements of hostage-taking and random attacks on restaurants. Also Read – Turning a blind eyeThe 13/11 attacks were the bloodiest that the French capital has seen since the second World War and were different from the January attacks on the French weekly newspaper, Charlie Hebdo, for many reasons.The first big change in the terrorists’ strategy is the target itself. The January attacks targeted a group of journalists, who the terrorists blamed for insulting Prophet Mohammed, through their caricatures. The second main target was a Jewish grocery store. But Friday’s attacks did not target any particular group. Instead, they were aimed at creating panic, fear and a sense of deep insecurity amongst the French. The attackers picked up venues where the young would be present in large numbers.And it looks that they have achieved their objective of a massive massacre. France has declared a state of emergency, tightened border controls and put greater pressure on its security apparatus.It is evident that the attacks were the handiwork of the IS, the terror group which wants to establish an Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East and parts of Europe.Nearly 2,000 French nationals, mainly Muslims, are believed to have gone to Syria and Iraq to join in the battle led by IS. Some of them may have gone there because of the hype built around the European and US intervention in Libya, Iraq, and Syria.The propaganda clearly swayed many Muslim youths in France who went to join the battle at a time when the French authorities did not really monitor the people going to these countries. Many of them have since returned to France as hardcore sympathisers and see themselves as continuing their jihad in Europe.The French security forces have been requesting additional means – manpower, equipment, and legal backing – to be able to monitor and control high-risk elements, but so far little has come of it.Friday’s attacks may change the equation and the French President Francois Hollande will be under severe pressure to bring in significant changes in the way the country’s security apparatus is run and the means that it has at its disposal.The carnage will also have deep political implications. France is headed for regional elections in less than three weeks and for the first time ever, the extreme right wing party, Front National (FN), led by Marine Le Pen is leading both the traditional parties, the Republicans led by former President Nicolas Sarkozy and the Socialists led by President Hollande, in the recent pol.The attacks are bound to push more French voters towards Le Pen as some have come to believe that they cannot live in peace with the immigrants, especially the Muslim populace. The FN has been calling for stringent curbs on certain sections and certain practices, targeting mainly the Muslims in France who number about 10 percent of its 62 million people.More worryingly for the French political mainstream would be the impact of 13/11 attacks on the presidential elections, slated within 18 months. The divide in the French society is set to become deeper and perhaps more violent in the run-up to the elections.                 (Ranvir Nayar is a senior Paris-based journalist.

Whats Keeping MiddleAged Borrowers Locked Out of Mortgage Market

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News, Origination Mortgage originations among middle-aged borrowers, ages 40 to 60, have been on a fast-paced decline since 2004.With the tightening and loosening of credit standards over the years, many just can’t find the right moment to jump into the housing market or may be burdened with outstanding debt balances.A report from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York titled, “The Graying of American Debt,” found that debt balances are weighing heavy on older borrowers for two reasons:One possibility is that the credit boom preceding the Great Recession built higher consumer debt levels. Afterward, underwriting standards tightened across the board in 2008-2009, so that any new potential borrowers had little opportunity to take out new loans. An acceleration and then slowdown in lending across the board would lead loans, and their associated borrowers, to be older today on average than in 2003.Alternatively, the shift toward older borrowers could have resulted from new loan originations increasingly favoring older borrowers over younger borrowers, whether this arises from recent changes in borrower or lender behavior.The New York Fed reported that mortgages are affected by both factors. Originations among all ages from 20 to 65 have experienced a large decline from 2004 to 2015, but the decrease was most observed among middle-aged borrowers, with a 60 percent fall in per capita originations. Meanwhile, the oldest ages (65 and up) experienced only modest declines in originations.”We see decisive evidence of a boom and slowdown in mortgage originations at most ages, which by itself would generate an older class of mortgage holders by 2015,” the New York Fed stated in the report. “In addition, we observe a tilt of mortgage originations away from younger borrowers and toward older borrowers between 2003 and 2015.”The report continued, “The tilting of new credit toward older ages may be an unsurprising consequence of credit tightening, when one considers the close relationship between credit risk score and age. Clearly higher risk score standards in underwriting affect younger borrowers differently than they do older borrowers.”In addition, younger borrowers are affected by growing student debt, which could hinder their ability to obtain a mortgage loan.”Hence the aging of the American borrower bodes well for the stability of outstanding consumer loans. At the same time, the likely combination of muted credit access and lower demand for credit that we observe among our younger borrowers may well have consequences for growth,” the report explained. “The graying of American debt that we observe between 2003 and 2015, then, might be interpreted as a shift toward greater balance sheet stability, and away from credit-fueled consumption growth.”Click here to view the full report.
