8262 euros) (Reporting by Andrea Shalal; editing by David Stamp) This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed.Keurig Green Mountain’s K-Cups have gotten plenty of flak for being wasteful. if youre thinking of buying a 4K television for yourself or a loved one this year,S. doesn’t yet have a 4K set-top box that offers an array of ultra high-definition channels Instead the television and Internet provider offers an app for Samsungs smart 4K televisions that lets those specific TVs access some ultra high-definition content The nations number two cable provider Time Warner Cable fares no better In May 2014 the company issued a lengthy press release outlining its 4K plans Now more than two years later the service still hasn’t been rolled out In a surprise twist major satellite television services are better equipped to get you 4K service but they still don’t provide much Dish Networks has a 4K set-top box but it simply uses Netflix to provide the content something that anyone with a bit of initiative could do for themselves DirecTV however offers some live 4K services For instance the satellite provider airs one MLB game in ultra high-definition each week and the entire season of Notre Dame football is shown in 4K as well DirecTV also offers a channel dedicated to 4K content (including popular movies documentaries and nature films) and it offers 4K content on demand While it’s tempting to ridicule television providers for passing these paltry selections off for real 4K service its not exactly their fault In order for content to be broadcast in 4K it would have to be filmed at a high enough resolution (or be remastered) to be broadcast in 4K Until recently most television shows and movies have been filmed in high-definition at best So really theres just not that much 4K content to be watched Streaming Services (and Streaming Boxes) One exception to the 4K famine is streaming video services Produced by deep-pocketed tech companies like Netflix Amazon and Google some new original streaming video content is being produced in 4K For example shows like Netflixs House of Cards and Amazons Transparent are 4K-ready But just because this content is produced and even streamed in ultra high definition doesnt mean that your 4K television is able to view it in such detail Not all 4K televisions are "smart TVs" (meaning they have apps and software able to connect to online streaming services) and not all smart TVs can stream a 4K feed (even though they have the technical ability to display a 4K image) Instead your best bet to ensuring that youre watching the ultra high definition content that youre expecting is to buy a streaming box that has 4K capabilities The new Roku Premiere is capable of relaying a 4K signal as is the Amazon Fire TV TiVo BOLT and Nvidia Shield Android TV set-top box Curiously Apple TV lacks 4K capability Internet Connectivity If you need to stream your 4K video content over the Internet youll need a considerably fast connection According to Netflix viewers need "a steady Internet connection speed of 25 megabits per second or higher" to enjoy its 4K content This is a deliberately worded sentence worth picking apart Comcast the countrys largest broadband provider currently says 25 megabits per second is "best for 2-3 devices online at the same time" for surfing the web and streaming more than one television show But if one of those shows is being streamed in 4K you can forget about doing anything else with that connection And if you were planning on streaming that 4K show in primetime when everyone else is streaming television shows your "steady" 25 megabit Internet service could be half that fast Realistically 4K video requires connection speeds of at least 50 megabits per second if not faster considering the demands on the overall network once everyone starts streaming video with their ultra high-definition televisions this year So if you dont have a fast Internet connection a 4K television might not make sense for you just yet And a new wrinkle added to high speed internet services data caps is another reason 4K televisions may be a bad investment This year Comcast rolled out a one terabyte data cap for its high speed Internet customers You may not come close to reaching your monthly limit now but if you’re someone who streams a lot of video (and hopes to stream in 4K too) you’ll likely get there much faster while watching ultra high-definition content Gaming Consoles and Blu-Rays So if your cable and Internet cant get the job done to make a 4K worthwhile surely gaming consoles and Blu-Ray players can right The answer to that is yes but only the latest and greatest ones As powerful as the original Xbox One and PS4 gaming consoles were they weren’t equipped to run true 4K signals Instead the systems displayed their games in 1080p which is one quarter of the resolution of the newer 4K screens While their games will undoubtedly look great on a 4K television the hardware is only scratching the surface of whats possible on the new displays Upgraded versions of the consoles released this year do support 4K gaming Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro lets players experience their favorite games in (nearly) 4K glory But there are subtle differences that avid gamers would appreciate our video game critic writes For instance while older PS4 games benefit from the high-def treatment newer titles were built from the ground up to utilize the improved graphics processing Meanwhile Microsoft’s Xbox One S offers not only 4K but also HDR also known as high dynamic range a feature that makes colors especially vibrant on both video games and movies However for HDR to be handy you need to buy a 4K television that includes this above-and-beyond technology and the games need to support the feature Currently no Xbox titles do Meanwhile disc-based content like Blu-Ray movies are typically formatted for plain ol’ high-definition at least thats true of the discs that have been stuffed in your closet since you started streaming everything over Netflix But there is a new standard called UltraHD Blu-Ray or 4K Blu-Ray that does tap into the new televisions vast amount of pixels However in order to see them in all their eye-popping glory youll have to invest in a new Ultra HD Blu-Ray player But if you’re a gamer good news: Xbox One S is able to handle 4K Blu-Ray discs This is what progress looks like says HDMI Licensings Park "Once the content availability expands and that comes with the release of [Ultra HD] and there is support of content owners like Hollywood and TV studios you will see a much quicker adoption of 4K in general" he says Contact us at [email protected] House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders encouraged Americans to flood the New York Times switchboard in protest over an anonymous op-ed from a member of the Trump Administration Calling the author an “anonymous coward” and a “gutless loser” Sanders tweeted the opinion desk’s phone number urging Trump supporters to ask about the identity of the writer who criticized Trump’s “amorality” and poor management skills “The media’s wild obsession with the identity of the anonymous coward is recklessly tarnishing the reputation of thousands of great Americans who proudly serve our country and work for President Trump” she wrote For those of you asking for the identity of the anonymous coward: pictwittercom/RpWYPHa6To Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) September 6 2018 The Times defended the choice to grant anonymity to the author because he or she is “a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure” On Wednesday Trump called for the Times to disclose the author’s identity calling it a threat to national security “If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist the Times must for National Security purposes turn him/her over to the government at once” he tweeted The tactic echoed something Trump did during the 2016 campaign when he retaliated against Republican Sen Lindsey Graham over criticism by sharing his cell phone number Graham eventually had to change his phone number It’s also happened to members of the Trump Administration In June the news site Splinter shared Trump aide Stephen Miller’s personal phone number

it is not a laughing matter New York Times editor Jonathan Wiseman left Twitter to avoid the deluge of hate filling his screens One can find every kind of hate online but misogyny is especially widespread Many female journalists probably could qualify for combat pay According to the International Womens Media Foundation women working in the media are increasingly targeted by readers or viewers who take full advantage of the anonymity offered by most websites comments sections to post everything from very personal criticisms about their appearance to their personal contact information to explicitly violent threats The hate now prevalent online is a sad commentary but the picture is not totally bleak Social media companies have taken steps to manage troublesome material in the past They have tackled copyright infringement and child pornography Users also can adopt strategies to mitigate risk With a mix of user action technical strategies and policy solutions the torrent of online harassment also can be addressed We launched the ADL Task Force on Online Harassment and Journalism to assess the problem and consider possible solutions The good news is Internet companies are in large part responsive when offensive content is flagged The echo symbol was tied in with a "Coincidence Detector" app which was available as a Google browser extension in the Chrome store After we notified Google of this potential effort by neo-Nazis to target Jewish people online the app was removed The triple parentheses symbol has also been co-opted by a number of high profile Jewish and non-Jewish Twitter users who have put the triple parentheses around their names in a show of solidarity in response to the alt-right haters I am inspired by journalists who have refused to be silenced by users who have pushed back against the hate and promoted positive messages by educators who are providing new tools and new resources and by Internet companies who are undertaking increased efforts to enhance safety on their platforms Clearly there is no silver bullet to solve this problem It will be an uphill battle But it is time to act if we want to preserve the Internet as

Department of Labor to take steps to force private-sector employers to pay overtime to more salaried employees a White House official confirmed Wednesday The administration’s proposed rule-making under the Fair Labor Standards Act first reported by the New York Times would push employers to pay overtime to more workers by raising the weekly wage cap full-time employees have to hit before being ineligible for overtime The move which will come Thursday is one component of the president’s efforts to work around a divided Congress this year while positioning Democrats favorably before this fall’s midterm elections Under current regulations salaried employees making less than $455 a week must be paid overtime a threshold set in 2005 by the Bush administration In 1975 it was $250 per week the equivalent of $970 in today’s dollars The White House is not yet revealing its proposed new capwhich will be subject to public comment and will likely face strong opposition from the business communityor when it will kick in But a White House official said the proposal will help “millions” and offered up California and New York as models for the proposal Those states have set thresholds of $640 per week and $600 per week (which will increase to $800 per week and $675 per week in 2016) respectively “Due to years of neglect one of the linchpins of the middle class the overtime rules that establish the 40-hour workweek have been eroded” the official said “As a result millions of salaried workers have been left without the protections of overtime or sometimes even the minimum wage For example a convenience store manager or a fast food shift supervisor or an office worker may be expected to work 50 or 60 hours a week or more making barely enough to keep a family out of poverty and not receive a dime of overtime pay It’s even possible that some of these workers make less than the minimum wage per hour” The move follows an executive order by Obama to raise the minimum wage paid to new federal contract workers as well as a public relations push to raise the federal minimum wage under the banner of “Opportunity for All” The White House is betting on Republican opposition to

He also said the Automatic Exchange of Information, Finkenauer says that massive debt burden is one of the critical economic problems of the 21st century,C.” she says “There are not a lot of people

running tough races this year including Katie Hill in California (31) and Lauren Underwood in Illinois (32) That’s why Finkenauer’s campaign is so unusual Young people are carrying more debt than ever at a time when it’s more expensive than ever to run for office Candidates without deep pockets or wealthy connections have a hard time mounting a real campaign and rich candidates who can self-fund

Congress this year are new to politics But Finkenauer has served as a state representative from the Dubuque area since 2015 One of the first bills she introduced was a measure to use employer tax

least it was an idea” she says “It just again shows what differences we will hopefully be able to make once there are different people sitting at the tables making the decisions” Like most Democrats running in Republican-held districts Finkenauer spends most of her time talking about kitchen-table issues like protecting health care coverage creating jobs and protecting labor unions But her economic message is tinged with a generational insight that many of her older colleagues ignore Implicit in her arguments is a message of hope: not just that Iowans can get better jobs but that young Iowans who left to go to college might be able to come home and put down roots where they grew up “We tend to skew older than most states in terms of the age of our population” says Woodard “But continually in Iowa particularly in rural Iowa were always asking ourselves how we keep young people here” It’s not just a jobs problem she says; it’s that student loans have interrupted the American Dream Her classmates “want to be able to buy a house to live next to mom and dad and their grandparents and have the kind of life like they had growing up in Iowa” “People do want to come back home” she says “But can you have a job that pays enough to be able to pay off the loans at the same time Supporters at a Finkenauer rally said her youth is an asset “She knows what it’s like to go into debt

victims of the sect whose lives has been made miserable Senator Representing Plateau Northern Senatorial District Senator Gyang Nyam Pwajok disclosed this in an interview with newsmen in Jos saying the debate for the amnesty is on and yet the context of the amnesty has not been clearly defined According to him “People talk in abstract terms what is amnesty Amnesty is for somebody you said you have forgiven him for what You must ask the question amnesty to who for what purpose in whose interest What is the nature of that amnesty and contain of that amnesty Who is given amnesty to who These are the issues that need to be tackled amnesty to the political elites in the north i different from amnesty to the commoner on the street the commoner on the street feels he cannot live on peace on the street so who is granting amnesty to who The person who will kill you tomorrow or the person who have bombed the Police Headquarters or the person who have freed prisoners from prison “People should talk on issues like what happen to the victims how do we rehabilitate them how do we reconcile people how do we reconstruct the damage that has been done this are the issues that we should be concern about and not about how do we grant amnesty Sen Pwajok said “You had not addressed anything about the victims and then you are talking about the person who is the perpetrator and you are talking about how to handle the perpetrators with kid gloves I don’t understand the kind of amnesty we are talking about so amnesty that excludes the victims is not amnesty” He added that “Amnesty is open for debate now everybody have his perception of what amnesty is what is amnesty to me is not amnesty to the other person a lot of people are confused to what amnesty is and I am sure we will get to a point where we will begin to identify the real contain of what amnesty stands for “Amnesty to somebody who is in Boko Haram is different from amnesty for the person who was killed and have his properties destroyed we have to be very careful how we stretch the use of amnesty otherwise it will become a free license for anybody who want to do anything and get away with it The lawmaker stressed that “Amnesty that would not translate into peace for the citizens of this Country and peace has to do with doing it right right relationship that is what peace is all about How right are you with your neighbour this is what guarantee peace in society but when you do what is wrong and you use the ward amnesty to cover for it then there is something fundamentally wrong” A former Chief Justice of Nigeria Justice Mariam Aloma Mukhtar has bemoaned the negative effect of what she termed “rising culture” of lobbying favouritism and godfatherism in the Nigerian judiciary According to her the culture led to fall in standard devalued and weakened the judiciary because it brought incompetent personnel on board Justice Mukhtar spoke in Abuja at a book presentation held in honour of a retired Justice of the Supreme Court Justice Clara Ogunbiyi Mukhtar was the 14th CJN the 13th Nigerian and the first female to occupy the office She said “I will at this junction revisit the issue of lobbying and in addition favouritism and godfatherism in the appointment of judicial officers “It is sad that we allow the rising culture of lobbying to influence appointment in the judiciary “If we are to revive what held sway in the past that is maintaining a strong and competent judiciary then merit should be the watchword Lobbying favouritism and godfatherism should be discouraged and discarded as they lead to the fall in the standard and instead of enhancing the institution; they devalue and weaken it because of incompetence of the personnel “These practices negate the principles of justice and breeds indiscipline “I once read in one of our daily newspapers that lobbying is the norm in the USA (United States of America) and since we are practising the American system of democracy it’s adoption here is in order “I disagree because even if they do so they consider merit first as the efficiency and the intellectual ability of an appointee is always paramount as far as the judiciary is concerned “We should not think of only what we desire today but what we will bequeath to the generation yet unborn” She described the retired Justice Ogunbiyi as “an epitome of humility”
