Tennis – Australian Open – Men’s singles final – Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne, Australia, January 28, 2018. Switzerland’s Roger Federer in action during the final against Croatia’s Marin Cilic. REUTERS/Issei KatoMELBOURNE, (Reuters) – Roger Federer fought off a fierce challenge from Croatia’s Marin Cilic to claim a record-equalling sixth Australian Open title with 6-2 6-7(5) 6-3 3-6 6-1 victory today.With the Rod Laver Arena roof closed to spare the players on a witheringly hot day in Melbourne, the 36-year-old Swiss was gliding towards a 20th grand slam title when he took the opening set against a nervy opponent in 24 minutes.For a while it looked horribly reminiscent of Cilic’s heavy defeat by Federer in last year’s Wimbledon final when the 29-year-old was hampered by blisters and broke down in tears.But the sixth seed, playing in his first Australian Open final after knocking out injured world number Rafael Nadal in the quarters, showed great resolve.He saved break points at 1-1, 2-2 and 4-4 in the second set before crunching some huge forehands in the tiebreaker to level the match against all the odds.Federer won the third set with a single break of serve but from a position of strength in the fourth he began to fade and lost five games on the spin as an increasingly dangerous Cilic dragged a slow-burning final into a decider.Defending champion Federer regrouped though and after fighting off a break point at the start of the fifth, Cilic’s resistance crumbled as the crowd roared Federer on to victory.“I’m so happy, it’s unbelievable, it’s been a long day,” Federer said. “I’m happy it’s over now. The fairytale continues for us, for me, it’s incredible,” said an emotional Federer as he cradled the Norman Brookes trophy.

The incident occurred at about 19:00h at Victory Valley, Wismar, Linden.According to the prosecutor’s case, Valladores was at a shop in Victory Valley imbibing along with Skeete and others when an argument ensued between the two. Skeete is alleged to have choked the victim, before pulling out a knife and slitting his throat. He then made good his escape.Following the alleged incident, Valladores placed a rag to his throat and ran East along Sunflower Street, Wismar.He was picked up by a driver but subsequently exited the vehicle while at Mackenzie/Wismar Bridge waiting for the traffic light. Valladores then ran in the direction of the Linden Hospital Complex (LHC) holding onto his throat. Another public-spirited person saw him, picked him up and rushed him to the LHC where he was treated for an eight-inch laceration to his neck.The injury resulted in him having to receive several stitches. He was then admitted a patient in a stable condition for observation. Skeete, who later went into hiding, was days later caught by Police and charged with the crime. He will make his next court appearance on October 16. read more

He also highlighted the fact that there are only three detectives based at the airport and this is the only permanent armed support it has.“And the only people with tactical training are the Emergency Response Unit and the Armed Support Unit. In my opinion, every detective in the city of Dublin should be trained tactically because they are the first line of defence.”You go to any airport in Europe and you are hit by armed officers patrolling the airport, but it’s not happening at Dublin Airport – it’s not visible. We can’t keep our head in the sands and think it won’t happen to us, but it’s on our doorstep.Also speaking on the issue was Cavan/Monaghan representative James Morrisroe, who said an incident such as the recent truck attack in Stockholm could be repeated in a major Irish city.“Following the attack in Stockholm, there is no reason why Ireland, as a modern, democratic and neutral country, would not be at risk.”Morrisroe said all rank-and-file members should be given theoretical, practical and tactical training and should be advised on how to divert crowds and protect life in the event of an attack.Catching upGarda Commissioner Nóirín O’Sullivan admitted the force has “a lot of catching up to do” with training, when she spoke to reporters at the conference yesterday afternoon.“There is no doubt the environment in which we operate is changing. We have seen what’s happening in Stockholm, but also in Westminster Bridge, which is closer, we saw the death and murder of PC Keith Palmer.”We are talking about training in terms of awareness in relation to the new reality – the need for vigilance. The need for our members, who are sometimes in garda stations on their own, sometimes they’re out on patrol on their own, sometimes they’re manning checkpoints on their own to be vigilant of the new reality we’re all dealing with.She said the face of terrorism is changing and will continue to change and gardaí must have the “agility and responsiveness” to be able to deal with whatever type of attack they are confronted with.Read: Commissioner: ‘Either gardaí can’t count accurately or someone’s been making figures up’> ‘We can’t keep our head in the sand’: Only 3 armed gardaí covering Dublin Airport Rank-and-file gardaí have warned they are not prepared for the types of terrorist attacks that have been happening in Europe. 73 Comments Share787 Tweet Email2 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 25,103 Views By Michelle Hennessy Image: Laura Hutton/RollingNews.ielast_img read more

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. There’s an anime series out there for everyone, whether you’re into beautiful boys, star-crossed lovers, or a detective who has a butt for a face. No, this isn’t Assy McGee from Adult Swim. It’s a new anime series starting in Japan called Oshiri Tantei. That literally means “Butt Detective” in Japanese, so it’s not like we’re just being clever here.Yes, Butt Detective is about a small anthropomorphic butt who looks like a regular person except for his bulbous, butt-shaped head. He farts out mystery theories and has a muted voice, apparently because his head is two butt cheeks, but he always ends up saving the day. The butt crack area is kind of like a mouth, and he can even eat food. Where are his teeth? Where does the food go when he’s finished eating and digesting the food? These are all questions I currently have, and that I surmise will crop up when you watch the show too.  Or crop dust, whatever the case may be.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Butt Detective himself isn’t the only character that’s in the show, though. There’s also a world of walking, talking dogs that he interacts with. I suppose it makes sense that he’d be engaging with a bunch of dogs just out in the world somewhere, since dogs like to sniff butts, after all. Maybe that’s the joke. I feel like there’s something I’m missing about the premise, but it seems like whoever smelt it, dealt it here. That and about a thousand other butt puns.If you’re interested in giving Butt Detective a try, it begins on May 3 at 9 AM in Japan, which should make for great morning viewing — just the thing many viewers are interested in watching first thing in the morning, right? Anyway, Butt Detective. Don’t let it squeak by you!last_img read more

first_img Chris Monroe/CNET • Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. The $299 Nest Cam IQ Indoor is very similar to the Nest Hello doorbell. It has facial recognition (if you sign up for a Nest Aware subscription) and lets you know who walks in front of the camera’s field of view with consistent accuracy. But it also has some additional benefits. Because it is an indoor camera, Nest gave it an integrated Google Assistant speaker. That means the camera essentially doubles as a Google Home speaker and can answer basic questions like what the current weather or traffic is in your area — and control a variety of Google-Assistant-enabled smart home devices. It also works with Amazon Alexa. Read full review Read full review See at Walmart If we’re talking about sheer facial-recognition capabilities, the Nest Hello, the Nest Cam IQ Indoor and the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor (all of which are essentially the same camera), win by far. Of those models, the Nest Hello is my top pick because it’s the least expensive of the three and has the most opportunity to give you important information about who’s at your front door. Nest’s IQ Indoor can tell you who’s already inside your house, but the Hello, as well as the IQ Outdoor Cam, tell you who’s outside your house. The Hello doorbell’s eye-level location has the best chance of seeing the most visitors, too (although I suppose you could install the $349 IQ Outdoor cam at eye level, if you wanted). The snag with the Hello, and other face-tracking Nest cams, is that you do have to pay for the facial-recognition feature. That means you have to subscribe to the Nest Aware cloud subscription service. Learn more about Nest Aware.Still, the Nest Hello is also a pick for best overall video doorbell.

See at Amazon Best overall: Nest Hello Aug 31 • The best coffee grinders you can buy right now Aug 31 • Best smart light bulbs for 2019 (plus switches, light strips, accessories and more) A lot of home security cameras nowadays have facial recognition, which lets you create a database of friends and family members who regularly visit your house. Then, when the camera sees a face, it determines whether or not it’s someone in your database of known faces.  Nest Hello video doorbell: Smarter than your average… Best value: Tend Secure Lynx Share your voice See All See at Walmart Aug 30 • Battling bot vacs: iRobot Roomba S9+ vs Neato Botvac D7 Connected Best smart home support: Nest Cam IQ Indoor reading • The best facial recognition cameras of 2019 Facial recognition cameras: Every one we tested Here’s a recap of the facial recognition cameras we’ve tested recently. Recommend above:  Nest HelloTend Secure Lynx  Nest Cam IQ Indoor Worth considering, but not as good as the top picks above: Nest Cam IQ Outdoor – The IQ Outdoor camera is similar to the $229 Nest Hello and the $299 IQ Indoor when it comes to specs and performance, but it offers a worse value at a whopping $349 per camera.Netatmo Welcome – Netatmo’s Welcome indoor camera did a fair job detecting faces, but the feature ultimately wasn’t quite as reliable as we’d like. Wisenet SmartCam N1 – The $150 SmartCam N1 did a good job detecting faces and it comes with a built-in microSD card slot for local storage, but the $60 Tend Secure Lynx performs just as well for much less. Not recommended: Honeywell Smart Home Security – Unreliable performance, including its facial recognition tech, seriously hurts this all-in-one system’s appeal.  Tend Secure Lynx Pro – While the indoor-outdoor Lynx Pro is technically the high-end version of the indoor-only Lynx, its improved specs didn’t translate to better facial recognition. Note that the recommendations above were at the time of testing, and could change based on later software updates. We’ll periodically update this list as such changes warrant.  How we tested When setting up a camera with a facial-recognition function, you create profiles of individual people, by either taking their picture in real time and adding it, or using an existing photo that you have of them. From there, The camera should be able to distinguish human faces from every other type of motion activity and single out the ones it recognizes from your database of familiar faces. When it’s working optimally, you will get an alert that says the camera saw “Chris,” “Molly” or whoever is in your database. There are many use cases for this type of functionality, but some common ones include getting an alert when your kids get home from school, or if a dog walker or a family caregiver shows up. It creates peace of mind when you’re expecting someone to show up and you want an automated alert telling you they have (especially when you aren’t home to greet them).  But it also helps in security scenarios, since the camera is essentially distinguishing between faces it recognizes and those it doesn’t. That way, if your camera sends you an alert that it saw someone on your front porch or walking into your house, but you don’t recognize them, you can more quickly send the information to law enforcement in the event of an actual break-in or theft, instead of having to sift through dozens of generic motion alerts to find the activity. Enlarge ImageViewing the facial recognition feature inside the SmartCam app. Screenshots by CNET The best way to test these cameras is to create a database, which is what I do when I test a camera with facial recognition (see the screenshots above). I add people to my database and let the camera do the rest. It’s best to give these cameras at least a few days, because some improve significantly, even over a short period of time, as they see faces at different angles. Then it’s a matter of looking at how well the camera actually recognized faces. How often did it correctly identify my face versus someone else’s face? How did it do when approached at different angles and changes to hairstyles and clothing accessories? Was the camera able to detect faces at all? Some occasionally struggle to see any faces, even ones that claim to have facial recognition, and instead mark the activity as a basic motion alert (ahem, Tend Secure Lynx Pro).  The future of facial recognition Amazon’s doorbell and security camera company, Ring, filed two patents related to facial recognition in 2018. The patents suggest that future Ring products might be able to identify faces from “most wanted” lists and automatically contact law enforcement. Here’s an excerpt from one of the patent filings: A video may be analyzed by an A/V recording and communication device that recorded the video (and/or by one or more backend servers) to determine whether the video contains a known criminal (e.g., convicted felon, sex offender, person on a “most wanted” list, etc.) or a suspicious person. Some of the present embodiments may automatically submit such a video stream to the law enforcement agencies. “Amazon is dreaming of a dangerous future,” ACLU attorney Jacob Snow said in a blog post. “The history of discriminatory government surveillance makes clear that face surveillance will disproportionately harm people already targeted by the government and subjected to racial profiling and abuse — immigrants, people of color, and the formerly incarcerated,” Snow added.  Right now, Ring cameras don’t offer facial recognition at all. Models that do, like the Nest Hello, are only designed to ID faces you add to your list of “familiar faces.” They won’t draw from a law enforcement list to determine if a convicted felon is nearby — or reach out to law enforcement if they spot a face that could match someone in a database.  While we know of no ethical breaches associated with these cameras on the market right now, the reality is we have no way to verify how the data is used. Even if we give the companies involved the benefit of the doubt regarding their data usage policies, those policies could change at any time. And when you consider that Ring is owned by Amazon and Nest is owned by Google, the potential for a Big Brother scenario is readily apparent. We’ll continue to keep an eye on home security cameras, doorbells and other devices with built-in facial recognition tech, to follow along with any changes in industry trends — and to see if any new models come close to matching the smarts of Nest’s Hello buzzer.  CNET Smart Home Tyler Lizenby/CNET 9 Photos A fine facial recognition camera for too much money A decent camera with disappointing facial recognition The smartest video doorbell around Read full review Tags Security Cameras Security Aug 31 • Alexa can tell you if someone breaks into your house Related links 2:39 Comments CNET Smart Home The Tend Secure Lynx only costs $60. Given that, I was skeptical that this camera would deliver, but it does. Not only does the camera itself perform well and offer some nice features like free seven-day event-based video clip storage, but it also has facial recognition free of charge (unlike the optional Nest Aware service).Create your database of familiar faces, and the Lynx takes over. There is a bit of a learning curve as it becomes familiar with each face, but it’s a very good option if you want an inexpensive indoor home security camera with decent facial recognition. 2 Now playing: Watch this: The software can be hit-or-miss, based on a variety of factors, from lighting to changing hairstyles, wearing glasses one day but not the next — and more. But one thing we know for sure is that this feature is becoming increasingly popular in our devices, not just in home security cameras, but also our cell phones and as efficiency tools helping to automate airport check-ins. As law enforcement becomes more invested in facial recognition technology, it’s already raising serious questions about privacy and civil rights across the board, and bringing calls for governmental regulation. But let’s step back a bit to the consumer realm. Your home is your castle, and the option of having facial recognition devices therein is still a compelling option for those who want to be on the cutting edge of smart home innovation. Let’s take a look at the facial recognition cameras we’ve tested recently, to see which models are the best and to help you determine if one would work for you.

first_img Enroll Now for Free This story originally appeared on PCMag Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now The MacBook Air was upstaged and neglected by last fall’s new touch-enabled MacBook Pro, but Apple might not be ready to kill it just yet. According to a Tuesday Bloomberg report, Apple plans to refresh its laptop lineup at WWDC next month.Citing people familiar with the matter, Bloomberg reported that Cupertino will announce internal makeovers for its laptops at the annual developers conference, which is scheduled for June 5 through 9. The MacBook Pro will get a new Kaby Lake Intel processor, and the 12-inch MacBook will get a faster chip as well. Less certain is the MacBook Air’s future: the computer that in large part ushered in the ultrabook era is still selling surprisingly well, but Apple seems hesitant to update it. At last October’s MacBook Pro unveiling, Apple Senior Vice President Phil Schiller said the new touch-enabled portable is better than the Air “in every way,” and implied that Air users looking to replace their laptop should go with the new Pro.Apple may be rethinking that suggestion, with Bloomberg reporting that the company has considered putting a new processor in the Air. While the Air has received component upgrades in the past, it’s been almost seven years since Apple made major design changes to it.Meanwhile, a BGR report citing sources close to Apple on Tuesday suggests that another aging Apple product — the iPad mini — is being phased out. An Apple spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the rumors.If Apple does announce refreshed laptops at WWDC, it will be the first such announcement at the conference since 2013, when the Mac Pro launched. Apple has recently preferred to make hardware changes at smaller dedicated events, such as the one last October that unveiled the MacBook Pro’s new Touch Bar. This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.last_img read more

first_imgBy Bejay BrowneTHE renal unit at Paphos general hospital has taken delivery of a state of the art dialysis machine, made possible by a donation from a local charity.According to Graham Brown, the chairman of the Paphos Kidney Association, the new machine- a ‘multifiltrate acute therapy system’, has been installed in Paphos General Hospital’s ICU (intensive care unit) and will be used for emergencies and life-threatening situations.“We are all really chuffed, the nurses, the doctors and the kidney association. We raised the money for it and it will also treat patients for food poisoning, multi- organ failure, plasma treatment as well as dialysis,” he told the Cyprus Mail.The new machine, which cost in excess of €30,000, is of particular use in treating patients with low blood pressure and nurses will need to be specially trained in how to operate the machine, and will undergo training in two weeks’ time he said.According to doctors at the unit, there are currently 75 patients receiving regular dialysis with many others waiting for treatment. Regular dialysis treatments takes around five hours and until now, patients with low blood pressure couldn’t use the machines in Paphos, as they need a far gentler treatment which takes much longer, and had to travel to Nicosia to use the machine there.The new machine has been long awaited, as the charity had to wait for many months to gain permission to donate the machine to the unit from the government. It then took a further three months to make, as it’s such a specialised item.“It was made in Germany; when the doctors asked us if we could get them this machine, we said yes and raised the money,” he said.Brown has hereditary polycystic kidney disease and receives regular dialysis treatment at the unit to keep him alive. Each of the hemodiafiltration (HDF) units which the charity has donated, comes with a €25,000 price tag.
