Book Review JK Rowlings The Casual Vacancy

first_imgJK Rowling’s new book, The Casual Vacancy, was released in September, and shows a grittier side of the author who brought us Harry Potter. But the book does more than just provide us with a window into the private and dysfunctional lives of the fictional village of Pagford – it shows a side of Rowling that cares about people in the community.The Casual VacancyThe characters in Rowling’s book are essentially at low points in their lives – something Rowling knows from experience. The publication of the Harry Potter books is one of the most inspiring rags-to-riches stories of modern times – Rowling went almost over night from a benefit-dependent single mother suffering from depression to the first living author to earn a billion dollars from her books. And it was while she was at rock bottom that she witnessed the sorts of characters who populate The Casual Vacancy.But throughout the low years, Rowling always managed to give back where she could. After studying French and Classics at University, she worked as a researcher for Amnesty International. And since finding success, Rowling has supported a number of causes, including Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres, Medecins Sans Frontieres and Comic Relief – her books Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Quidditch Through The Ages were both published in aid of Comic Relief. She was also the Patron of the Multiple Sclerosis Society in Scotland for nine years, and she now funds MS research through the VOLANT Charitable Trust, which she founded in memory of her mother.But it was an article in the Sunday Times in 2005 that led Rowling to establish one of the most important charities currently operating on a global scale to help the 8 million children living in institutions.“I looked at that photograph of the boy in his cage bed and felt he has absolutely no voice,” said Rowling. “This touched me as nothing else has because I can think of nobody more powerless than a child, perhaps with a mental or a physical disability, locked away from their family. It was a very shocking realization to me and that’s where the whole thing started.”Rowling’s High Level Children’s Group is now known as Lumos, which works at a political and practical level to ensure that UN minimum standards for the care of children are implemented across the whole of Europe and beyond. Rowling is still active at raising money for the cause – in 2007, she auctioned one of seven special copies of her Harry Potter tie-in, The Tales Of Beedle The Bard, for the charity. The result was a US$ 4 million boost for Lumos’ work. The general release publication of the book continues to raise money for the charity, and it was recently released as an eBook for Lumos.Rowling’s new book, The Casual Vacancy, is a step away from anything she’s published before. Definitely not a children’s book, it is a challenging read – both in terms of literature and content. Set in the small village of Pagford, it follows a large set of characters as they fight among themselves to fill a recently vacated position on the parish council.Dark and compelling, The Casual Vacancy is a book that makes you think about the people who make up communities and inspires us to think about those who may “fall through the cracks”. The last 100 pages include some of the best storytelling I have read in a long time.“The Casual Vacancy is set in a small community, which involved writing characters who are adolescents way up to people in their sixties,” said Rowling. “I love nineteenth century novels that centre on a town or village. This is my attempt to do a modern version. As a writer you have to write what you want to write; or rather what you need to write. I needed to write this book.”The Casual Vacancy is available from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.Copyright ©2012Look to the Starslast_img read more

Rahul anchors Kings XI to 8wicket win over Mumbai

first_imgMohali: K L Rahul played the role of a sheet anchor to perfection as Kings XI Punjab returned to winning ways with a comfortable eight-wicket victory over Mumbai Indians in an IPL encounter here Saturday. The talented Rahul was unbeaten on 71 off 57 balls with KXIP reaching the 177-run target in only 18.4 overs. This was KXIP’s second win in three games while MI lost their second game. The India international hit six fours and a six but what stood out was the manner in which he paced his innings. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhHe played second fiddle to perfection till the dashing Chris Gayle and the flamboyant Mayank Agarwal were at the crease but upped the ante when it was required. The 15th over bowled by Hardik Pandya swung the match decisively in KXIP’s favour with 19 runs coming off it. Once the pressure was off, Rahul hit the ever-dependable Jasprit Bumrah for successive fours to literally close the match. Gayle (40, 24 balls) batted in a manner only he can as he cleared his front leg and hit those towering sixes before Pandya brothers joined hands to send him back to the dug-out after an opening stand of 53. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterGayle failed to get required elevation off a Krunal delivery and Hardik caught him in the deep. Rahul was barely into double figures when Gayle got out. The next partnership was equally interesting as Agarwal (43, 21 balls) was in great nick during the 64 runs that he added with his close buddy Rahul in only 6.1 overs. Pandya brothers had a dismal day with the ball as Krunal gave away 43 runs in his four overs and Hardik 39 runs in three overs. While he was a disappointment with the ball, Hardik once again provided the final flourish after yet another middle-order collapse as Mumbai Indians managed 176 for 7 after being put into bat. Quinton de Kock with a 39-ball-60 created a platform which the middle-order unfortunately didn’t make full use of before Hardik smashed 31 off 19 balls to enable MI get past 175-run mark. While De Kock hit six boundaries and two sixes in his innings, Pandya hit three boundaries and a six off Mohammed Shami. Skipper Rohit Sharma also looked good during his brief stay at the crease, scoring 32 off 18 balls with five fours. He added 51 for the opening stand with De Kock. For the home team, it was the lesser known Ashwin — Murugan, who emerged as the most successful bowler with figures of 2 for 25 from his four overs. Skipper Ravichandran Ashwin didn’t get any wickets but gave away only 26 runs in his four overs. The pace troika of Shami (2/40 in 4 overs), Andrew Tye (1/40 in 4 overs) and Hardus Viljoen (2/40 in 4 overs) were among wickets but bowled a lot of loose deliveries, giving away 13 fours and three sixes. MI were off to a great start after Shami was hit for a couple of boundaries by Rohit and one from De Kock in the very second over. In the fifth over, Rohit hit Andrew Tye for three more fours but Viljoen dismissed him in the very next over when he tried to play across the line. Suryakumar Yadav (11) was caught plumb in-front by Murugan but De Kock found his ways to get boundaries off both the Ashwins. For a good measure he pulled Shami for a six behind square and brought up his fifty with a boundary off Murugan. In between Yuvraj Singh became Murugan’s second victim and once De Kock was trapped leg before by Shami, MI were in a spot of bother. Once Pollard was gone, MI slumped to 146 for five from 120 for two but Hardik ensured a safe total for the visitors.last_img read more

At least 3000 suspected Dengue fever cases reported in Yemen – UN

WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier told reporters at UN headquarters in Geneva that more than 3,000 suspected cases of Dengue had been reported in Yemen since March 20 with some non-governmental organizations flagging more than 6,000 cases.The latest development comes just days after WHO said Yemen’s health system is on the verge of breakdown. Hospitals have been destroyed, health workers killed and critical shortages of food, medical supplies and fuel are causing large-scale suffering, and it is only thanks to the heroic efforts of the country’s health workers, the resilience of its brave people and the tireless efforts of national and international humanitarian organizations that any semblance of health care is being provided.In addition, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) report that health kits, IV fluids and other essential medicines have been delivered to health facilities in four governorates in Yemen in the past week, for the treatment of more than 438,000 people, including treatment of patients with dengue fever.In Geneva today, the WHO spokesman said that Dengue fever in Yemen followed a seasonal pattern with a high number of cases being reported between April and August annually, but the conflict had led to a large increase in the number of cases reported this year. The current crisis in Yemen had severely impacted access to water, sanitation, preventive and clinical services, and shelter in many governorates that has led to an increased risk of disease outbreaks, particularly among the internally displaced people and the large segments of the population affected by the crisis, according to Mr. Lindmeier.“Hundreds of cases were expected in Aden alone in the coming weeks,” he said. He also said that access to care had been severely impacted with a nearly 50 percent drop in consultations since the conflict began in 2015. WHO said that together with Yemen’s Ministry of Health, they have developed an outbreak control and response strategy for the suspected Dengue cases, which included measures such as strengthened laboratory capacity, the provision of bed nets, insecticide and spraying equipment, and transportation and implementation. However, “access was the biggest challenge,” Mr. Lindmeier said.Dengue fever is a severe, flu-like illness that affects infants, young children and adults, but seldom causes death, according to a WHO factsheet, which also says there is no specific treatment for dengue fever but early detection and access to proper medical care lowers fatality rates below 1 per cent. read more

This Shadow of the Colossus custom hard drive case is amazing

first_imgTeam ICO’s Shadow of the Colossus is generally not only entered into the “games are art” argument as a shining example, but is also frequently included in the “one of the best games ever made” conversation. Simply buying the game doesn’t do its genius justice though, and we could do with some monuments built to commemorate its contributions to gaming. Imgur user foxfoxwaltz seemed to feel the same way, and constructed an absolutely amazing external HDD casing memorializing the game.The intricately detailed case is a replica of the second colossus, Quadratus, and houses a 500GB external HDD. The unit was built on top of a lamp base, strips of cardboard, and used plaster sheets to mold the body. A stone texture paint was used to cover the body, then the intricate details were painted in acrylic, and fake moss finished off the in-game climbable parts of the colossus. The glowing blue LEDs used for the eyes are covered in a sheet of vellum so the pupil could be painted on, but not obscure the light too much.So as not to disrupt the overall vibe of the case, the hard drive is connected to a USB cable that leads out of the back of the unit. The eyes don’t have a switch, and light up when the cable is plugged in. Fans of the game might notice that the case doesn’t display the weak point glyph on the colossus’ head, but as this was foxfoxwaltz’s first build of this kind, we’ll let it slide.Check out each step of the build process over here.last_img read more

Alerte Météo France la neige tombe sur la France et complique la

first_imgAlerte Météo France : la neige tombe sur la France et complique la circulationCe matin à 1 heure, le plan neige ou verglas est passé au niveau maximal (niveau 3) en Ile-de-France. Météo France a également étendu son alerte météo à 37 départements. Il est ainsi demandé aux automobilistes de limiter leur déplacement autant que possible et de rester vigilant.Météo France l’avait annoncée et la neige est bel et bien arrivée. Jeudi, les météorologistes ont en effet émis une alerte de vigilance orange à la neige et au verglas sur l’Ile-de-France, la Picardie et le Nord-Pas-de-Calais. Ce matin, nous avons ainsi été nombreux à nous réveiller et à constater que les rues étaient recouvertes de neige. Face à l’alerte, la préfecture de police de Paris a déclenché jeudi le niveau 2 du plan neige ou verglas en Ile-de-France (PNVIF). Dans la nuit, à 1 heure du matin, elle a enclenché le niveau 3, soit le plus haut de l’échelle. “De mauvaises conditions météorologiques sont prévues en Ile-de-France pour la nuit du jeudi 6 décembre 2012 au vendredi 7 décembre 2012 en début de matinée. La circulation routière en Ile-de-France peut devenir très difficile”, a indiqué le préfet de police dans un communiqué.Ainsi, depuis jeudi 18 heures, la vitesse pour les poids lourds était limitée à 80 km/h et le dépassement interdit. À 21 heures, la N118 était fermée aux poids lourds. Aujourd’hui, en niveau 3, entre en action le PC de circulation zonale (les gestionnaires de la voirie) et le PC de circulation de crise (les forces de l’ordre). La préfecture appellent les automobilistes à la plus grande vigilance et leur conseille de ne se déplacer “que si c’est absolument nécessaire” et si possible avec des pneus neige.La neige ne tiendra pas au sol À lire aussi(VIDÉO) Un radar détecte un nuage de coccinelles de 80 kilomètres de largeDans les autres régions, dans une zone allant du Nord au Rhône-Alpes, de fortes chutes de neige ont eu lieu et 33 départements ont été placés en alerte orange par Météo-France. En Gironde, le verglas a entraîné une quarantaine d’accidents dans lesquels 34 personnes ont été blessées, dont quatre grièvement. Selon les pompiers, ces accidents, qui se sont produits sur la quasi-totalité du département ont eu lieu pour la plupart entre 6 heures et 9 h 30. Il est donc fortement conseillé de ne pas prendre la route vendredi.Les prévisions ont néanmoins indiqué que “les températures redeviendront proches de 0°C”, avant de remonter. La neige qui a jusqu’ici tenue au sol, devrait donc fondre dans les prochaines heures. Par ailleurs, Météo France a annoncé que l’Est devrait également avoir droit entre vendredi et samedi à ces premières chutes de neige.

Google Doodle celebrates 50 years of LGBTQ pride

first_img Online Tech Industry Our favorite Google Doodles through the years Share your voice Tags Google Doodle Google Comments 99+ 49 Photos Google’s Pride Doodle depicts the growing size of the Pride celebration over the past half century. Google Fifty years ago this month, New York police launched an early morning raid on a small Greenwich Village bar popular with members of the gay community, sparking the Stonewall riots and ushering in the modern battle for LGBT rights in the US.To celebrate the 50 years of Pride celebrations that followed, Google published a Doodle sideshow on Tuesday that offers a taste of Pride parades from each of the five decades. Google’s Doodlers wanted the Doodle to underscore how the Pride parade has grown in size and momentum over the past half century, empowering a bright and vibrant community along the way.Over the years, Google has taken a high-profile stance in support of gay rights. In 2008, the company announced its opposition to Proposition 8, an anti-gay marriage measure that California voters ultimately approved. To mark June as Gay and Lesbian Pride month, Google has traditionally added a rainbow to the right side of the search bar when users search for “gay,” “lesbian,” “transgender,” or related terms. This year’s return on those search terms is a graphic depicting Pride celebrations around the world.For this year’s Doodle, Doodler Nate Swinehart said he decided to use strips of cut paper to depict the people and the setting. By adding multiple layers of paper, which by its nature is flat, the Doodle grows to reflect the community’s expansion. Color, of course, is a key symbol of Pride.google-doodle-2009-june-4-pride-2019Color is a key symbol of Pride. Google “While everything begins with shades of grey, we first see the rainbow through a community space,” Swinehart explains. “Color then begins to spread, first in individual people, then to the city around them, until it finally overtakes the entire composition.”I also wanted the progression of color to be meaningful, beginning with the initial pink triangle that was reclaimed by the community as a symbol of liberation. From there, we go backwards through the rainbow from purple to red, until we see all the colors come together harmoniously in the final image.”Swinehart writes that, as a member of the LGBTQ community, this Doodle was a very personal project for him, especially because he’s well acquainted with the struggle to feel included and accepted.”Before I joined Google in 2014, I remember opening up the Google homepage to see a Doodle celebrating the Winter Olympics, depicting the colors of the Pride flag. I was completely blown away,” Swinehart writes. “Looking at the front page of Google, I was filled with hope and a feeling of belonging. “That moment was a large part of why I wanted to become a Doodler. I recognized the opportunity we have to make a positive impact on the world, and to help make people feel seen, heard, and valued.”last_img read more

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. $155 at Google Express Read the AirPods review Chris Monroe/CNET An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express Google Nest Hub: $59 (save $70) Tags Post a comment Tidal 3-month family subscription: $5.99 (save $54) $210 at Best Buy Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. $6 at Tidal $59 at eBay Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. Sarah Tew/CNET Preview • A Galaxy far, far away?

See It News • Samsung Galaxy Home ‘mini’ makes its way through the FCC Free Echo Dot with an Insignia or Toshiba TV (save $50) Sarah Tew/CNET Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast.

Thieves Steal Entire Roof of Historic Medieval Church

first_imgThey posed as workmen and acted with stealth –a group of thieves removed the entire lead roof of a beloved 14th-century church in Houghton Regis, Bedfordshire, in England. The soaring roof of the Grade I-listed All Saints Church is not visible from the ground. The theft was discovered on October 2, 2018, when a cleaning person saw daylight through the ceiling. Debris was then spotted on the floor too.About 20 tonnes of lead was taken. It is feared that the cost of replacing the lead could be as high as £100,000.The church said the insurance would not cover all the repair costs, according to the BBC.Photo by Gary MuddTreasurer Joyce Bullock said: “I don’t know how we are going to pay for it,” adding: “I just pray every day that nothing else happens.”Inspector Nick Masters described the theft as “audacious” and he asked any residents with CCTV to check their footage, the Daily Mirror reported.“We suspect the people responsible may have been going backward and forwards to the church for a prolonged period of time,” Masters said. “Due to the sheer quantity of lead taken, it’s unlikely that it happened over a few days. It’s likely that the people responsible were driving trucks or vans so they could transport scaffolding or ladders in order to access the roof of the church, and may have posed as tradesmen.Photo by Gary MuddChurchwarden Margaret Tyler told the media the theft was “heartbreaking” but a wedding and harvest festival service were still going to take place.Gary Mudd, who lives in the village, said, “I feel stunned–the morals of the thieves are appalling.”Photo by Gary MuddThe site of the church is of great historical interest. According to its website, the church is one of the very few in Bedfordshire to be mentioned in the Doomsday Book (AD 1086), which records that it was held by William the Chamberlain, who also held Luton Church.In 1121 Henry I gave the village of Houghton Regis and surrounding land to Robert Earl of Gloucester, his illegitimate son. William, the son of Earl Robert, granted the early (Saxon) version of the church to St. Albans Abbey in 1153.“The main body of the current All Saints’ was built in 14th century in the Rectilinear Gothic style, whilst the tower, the roof and the ceiling of the nave were remodeled in the 15th century,” the website says.All Saint’s Church in the village of Houghton Conquest Photo by Gary MuddAll Saints’ tower is a “fine example of Rectilinear style accessed via a staircase in the southwest turret, and crowned by castellation.” The cross above the tower is a later addition, to which a weathercock was then added in 1750.The tower also houses six bells, a spacious ringing chamber, and a beautiful Victorian stained glass window by Underhill of Exeter above the west door, flanked by medieval canopied niches.Robert, Earl of Gloucester played an important part in English history. Obeying the wishes of his father, he supported the claim to the throne of his half-sister, Matilda, who was the only legitimate child of Henry I at his death.A cousin, Stephen, tried to claim the throne and take it away from her, saying a woman could not rule England. A civil war ensued, with some of the nobles supporting Stephen and some Matilda and her half-brother.A capable military leader, Gloucester, commanding at the head of her forces, won from Stephen most of western England and southern Wales. In February 1141 he captured Stephen at Lincoln and imprisoned him in Bristol.Gloucester died in 1147.Read another story from us: 8-yr-old Girl Finds Ancient Pre-Viking Sword in Swedish LakeOne parishioner told the media, “It’s an historical building and it’s wanted and loved by the community, whether they’re religious or not.

The top three cancer site types include prostate, breast and lung cancer, which account for 21 percent, 20 percent and 13 percent, respectively, of all cancer site types treated using radiation therapy. “While the number of patients treated with radiation therapy every year is relatively stable, the technological sophistication of radiation oncology departments is continuing to advance. Digital imaging has become integrated into treatment planning and to guide tumor treatment real-time,” observed Lorna Young, senior director, Market Research. “Over half of the radiation oncology sites provide treatments using image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT), up from 15 percent of the sites in 2004, using either a dedicated IGRT imaging device or electronic portal imaging. Ultrasound, X-ray and CT are the primary imaging modalities used in IGRT.” The report also found that nearly all (97 percent) of the radiation therapy treatment plans use CT images, 11 percent use MRI and 11 percent use PET images; and CT simulators comprised over 90 percent of the simulators installed in 2007. The study also reported that intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) has been adopted by 87 percent of the radiation oncology sites. Plus, sites having budgets of $1.5 million have increased from 15 percent of 2003 capital budgets to 32 percent of 2008 budgets.
