Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market For a more in-depth look at other attempts to disrupt the scientific publishing industry, see Michael Nielsen’s article on the topic, this Nature blog post about scientists’ use of social networks and this profile of a new social network for scientists called MyExperiment. Tags:#NYT#Publishing Services#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting marshall kirkpatrick Related Posts The proposed new format incorporates things as simple as bullet point summaries and playable audio interviews with a paper’s author and as complex as click-navigable data visualizations and real-time citation analysis. Some of the AJAX implementations are quite smooth and useful looking. The full summary of proposed features is available on Elsevier subsidiary publisher Cell’s site and the company is seeking public comment.Blogs and websites are weighing in with different points of view. James Dacey writes at PhysicsWorld that “I reckon this is another key development in an interesting transitionary period for both the publishing and media sectors.” Several commenters on this article on Canadian Law Library blog Slaw were far less generous.Gary P. Rodrigues, a former LexisNexis publishing exec, had the following to say there:There doesn’t seem to be much in the way of the ‘future’ in the ‘Article of the Future’. Rather, it seems to me to be a collection of everything that it is possible to do now, but for which there is no commercial demand. Reed Elsevier faces a major challenge to its dominant position in the market for scientific journals from the Open Access movement. It needs to do something major to meet that challenge. The prototypes just don’t live up to the hype.Indeed, the article prototypes are reminiscent of what in the tech world was being called the Social Media Press Release, an attempt to make press releases multi-media and filled with social media hooks that could make them more useful to journalists. That effort seems to have petered out as most people in relevant industries found the format more trouble than it was worth.There is a possibility that The Article of the Future will suffer the same fate. Elsevier says that it hopes the new format will make consumption of scientific research more efficient and interdisciplinary. We suspect, though, that many people who are interested in reading a paper titled “A Dynamic Pathway for Calcium-Independent Activation of CaMKII by Methionine Oxidation,” for example, would prefer to keep out the clutter and stick with a familiar, scannable, academic format. Some of the features proposed are undeniably useful, though, and could lead to change that’s incremental, if not revolutionary. Giant science publisher Elsevier announced this week that it is developing what it calls The Article of the Future, a new method of leveraging the web’s multi-media capabilities for presenting academic articles online. The company says it seeks to offer readers “individualized entry points and routes through the content, while using the latest advances in visualization techniques.” It’s got AJAX and it’s got real-time web search.Some parts of the available prototypes are interesting but opinion in the scientific community seems split. Is this ground-breaking stuff or yesterday’s news repackaged by another industry threatened by the web? That depends on who you ask.

Watford captain Deeney urging supporters to get behind themby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveWatford captain Troy Deeney is urging supporters to get behind the players.Deeney says the players remained confident that they could still have a good season, but said fans needed to be a bit more patient after the change of head coach from Javi Gracia and Quique Sanchez Flores.”We can’t panic yet. If we start panicking what does that transmit?” said the skipper.”Obviously there’s quality there [in the team], but the main quality that’s needed now is hard work and resilience and not to fold because as you saw tonight at half time, some fans were a bit iffy and it’s six games in. There has to be a sense of realism.”We’re not spending £50 million on centre halves, we’re not paying people 200 grand a week. We’re still Watford, we’re still learning, we’re still building, but when we win, we win together and when we lose, we lose together and that’s where I think we’re getting a little bit lost in the connection between fans and players.”Don’t get me wrong, lose 8-0, you deserve to get battered, we all do. We take that on the chin, but at the same time when we win, be with us.”We’re growing and ultimately changing manager, you’ve got to find your best team and best formation and we’ve got a lot of attacking talent now, so how you mould that and get everyone playing and clicking at the same time. It’s difficult.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

By Rob SmithAPTN National NewsInflammatory remarks from a respected Williams Lake, B.C.,businessman highlight the growing tension between the town’s people and the Tsilhqot’in nation which opposes a gold and copper mine that would drain sacred Fish Lake.Walter Cobb, president of the Williams Lake Chamber of Commerce, accused the Tsilhqot’in of standing in the way of progress.“They don’t want to work…Some of those leaders seem to not want their people to work or prosper on the reserve,” said Cobb. “I don’t have any idea what the rational is.”Cobb warns there will be a backlash if Taseko Mines Ltd.’s Prosperity gold and copper project is stopped.The federal cabinet will ultimately decide the project’s fate and a decision is expected at any time.
Former Inter Milan midfielder Dejan Stankovic is impressed with the current side but suggested Juventus are in the world of their own.The Nerazzurri have won all seven games in all competitions put together, making up for a poor start to the season. However, Stankovic thinks other Serie A teams may settle for second fiddle at the end.“It’s a good streak, I expected it sooner or later,” Stankovic told Sky.“It’s a well-constructed squad that is improving game-by-game, and which has emerged more compact from the difficulties.“Mauro Icardi is a great player, and he’s getting better and more clinical as the years’ pass.Capello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The former Italian manager believes Romelu Lukaku is perfectly suited for Antonio Conte’s Internazionale Milan in the Serie A.“The squad has changed and it’s important to have a deep bench. Thanks to that quality, the substitutions are always good.“All the signings were good, and just as I expected [Matteo] Politano was a good step. I’m expecting more from [Roberto] Gagliardini though, he’s an important player who can give more.“The Scudetto? I’m a realist, and Juventus are playing in another league, everyone else is playing for second place.“As for the derby, these games are unique and I can’t make a prediction. It’ll be a good game because Milan have woken up.“I hope Inter win, but it’ll be a tough game.”
Eusebio Di Francesco has reiterated his faith in the transfer dealings of sporting director Ramon Monchi.Ahead of the club’s game with Torino, Eusebio went on to give an insight into the fitness of his players for the game.“Both Dzeko and Schick are in excellent condition,” the Coach said at a Press conference via Football Italia.“I’ll make a decision tomorrow, keeping Edin’s recovery in mind. I’m happy to have two important options in front of me, especially Patrik’s recent growth.“Who will recover in time for tomorrow? Manolas almost certainly because he’s trained with us for the last three days, so if he doesn’t have any problems [before Saturday] then he’ll be available.“Florenzi isn’t at his best because of a bad cold, so I have to evaluate whether to call him up or not.Chris Smalling open to a permanent AS Roma deal Andrew Smyth – September 6, 2019 Chris Smalling can “definitely see a longer-term future” for himself at AS Roma should things work out on his loan spell from Manchester United.“Karsdorp will play for his place with Santon [at right-back], then there are Mirante, Perotti, De Rossi and Juan Jesus who aren’t available.“Pastore? He’s acquiring good physical condition. Now he must find consistency in what he does, but Zaniolo will start as our No 10.“I can say we’ve improved our last three games, but we’ve often come back from bad runs and we hope we don’t have to again.“Tomorrow we have the obligation and need to win, and we’ll show intent right away because against certain teams with certain mechanisms, everything becomes more difficult.“I have faith in Monchi, who is looking for opportunities [to bring in players]. I told him that if we have to do something for the sake of it, it’s better to do nothing at all.“If there’s an opportunity to improve our squad, then yes, otherwise we’ll stay as we are. Belotti? I won’t talk about players who don’t belong here.”
The cause of the crash is under investigation. Speed is believed to be a factor. Johnson was not wearing his seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle and declared dead at the scene. There was no one else traveling in the vehicle. Derrick Johnson, 26, was killed in the collision just after 4 a.m. Alaska State Troopers responded to the scene. The preliminary investigation found that Johnson, driving a green 1995 Ford Taurus, was traveling southbound on the Seward Highway when he lost control of the vehicle and rolled into a ditch near the Rabbit Creek Road exit.

Ashraf HossainAshraf Hossain is a living legend in Jessore’s Chaugacha upazila, helping the people in his area to avail the Right to Information (RTI) act. Ashraf approaches various departments of government organisations for information and provides this information to people who need assistance. Thus he tries to render government and private organisations accountable.Abdul Jabbar needed help from Ashraf Hossain. He is a day labourer of Boro Gobindapur in Jessore’s Chaugacha upazila. He cut his hand while on the job and rushed to hospital on Saturday. Jabbar’s brother called Ashraf and Ashraf called the Chaugacha health complex’s authorities.Ashraf’s call made the hospital authorities provide Jabbar their best treatment.Jabbar told Prothom Alo, “The doctor took time and care to stitch my hand. I would not get the best treatment if Ashraf uncle had not called them”.Ramzan Ali from the village Laskarpur has been facing inordinate delays in registering land at the upazila land office. Ashraf Hossain sent him to an official and the work was done within a few days.Ramzan said, “Without Ashraf’s help I would have faced more hassle”.Ashraf Hossain, 50, lives with his wife and two children in Jamlata village of the upazila. And eighth grade drop-out Ashraf, is a timber trader.Ashraf always protested against any irregularities, corruption, and unlawful activities around him since his childhood. Now he fights against the corrupt with proof. He even provides the proof and information to the media.Ashraf Hossain applies for necessary information to different government departments, using RTI. He asks for information if he hears of any irregularities or corruption.He complains to the information commission if any official refuses to provide him with the necessary information.Ashraf, so far, has submitted application 26 times to various government departments under the RTI act. He received 18 sets of information on time, four after approaching the information commission and four are being processed.Ashraf was harvesting rice with his son in the field near home when the Prothom Alo correspondent visited him.Ashraf said, a private development organisation MRDI arranged a training camp on the RTI act in it office at Shinghajhuli union parishad in 2015. The seven-day camp was organised by Manusher Jonno Foundation.”I came to know that according to the law every citizen has the right to any information from the authorities. After the training ended, I started to seek information from different departments of the government offices” he added. Ashraf said, Chaugacha upazila health complex, Chaugacha Upazila Education Office, Chaugacha Juba Unnayan Office and Shishu Niloy Foundation refused to provide him with information.Shishu Niloy Foundation did not even accept his application and an official even insulted him. He complained against the foundation and three government offices to the information commission.Ashraf said the officers apologised and provided him with the information he asked for later on.Now his applications are under process in Chaugacha Primary Education office, Dhuliani UP, the office of Jessore district civil surgeon and Chaugacha Rural Electrification office.According to Ashraf, the RTI act is a great initiative as it renders various organisations accountable. But he had been threatened too, while trying to avail information. His wife, Taslima Khatun said, “My husband helps people, I am happy about that. But sometimes he has to face threats to his life. I am worried about him” Ashraf’s initiative to ask for information is the talk of the town. Following his footsteps, Jahangir Alam, a Singapore migrant from Ujirpur village, Abu Kalam, Dablu Mia from Muktarpur and Nawab Ali from Fatehpur sought information from various offices under the RTI act.Sukumar Das, the acting president of TIB’s Shocheton Nagorik Committee in Jessore said, “This is certainly a positive initiative by Ashraf Ali. Being inspired, many others are seeking information from different offices.”Earlier, Ashraf applied for lists of free medicines provided by the government and the register book that contained the patient lists provided with the medicines from January to September on 26 August in 2015. He applied to the Jessore civil surgeon’s office on 7 October. They did not provide him with any information.Ashraf then complained to the information commission and the commission ordered them to provide him with the necessary information within 15 days.After that, the patients started to receive free medication and treatment at the Upazila Health Complex.A patient at the health complex, Shahar Banu said, “I have been admitted into the hospital for 10 days. I got all the medicines for free.”Ashraf applied to the Chaugacha upazila education officer for a copy of the student-list who get the stipend and government allocations in Garibpur primary school. There have been no irregularities in distribution of stipend since then. ASM Kabir Hossain, the senior information officer of Jessore district said, “Every citizen has the right to information from any department. Ashraf Hossain is seeking information using RTI act which is a very positive initiative”.Shaheen Anam, the executive director of Manusher Jonno Foundation, said the RTI act was introduced with the purpose to establish good governance. “We can achieve the goal if the public starts to use the act” he added.Shaheen again said, “It is sad that rural people are using the RTI act more than urban ones. We need to work on this to change the scene”.*The article originally published in Prothom Alo print edition has been rewritten in English by Farjana Liakat.
