RAM Denies Responsibility in Prince Harry and Meghan Photographers Luggage Loss

Rabat – Royal Air Maroc (RAM) released a statement explaining the delay of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s flight and the loss of their photographers’ luggage.RAM said that because of heavy fog over London, Heathrow and Gatwick airports ordered several airlines, including RAM, to temporarily suspend their flights over the capital on Saturday.Flight AT 803 carrying the royal couple and their accompanying delegation was consequently delayed by an hour. RAM noted that Prince Harry and Meghan’s three photographers, whose luggage was lost, flew into Morocco on RAM’s flight AT 801 on Friday. However, RAM blamed the photographers for not registering their luggage aboard the same flight.According to Mark Cuthbert, one of the royal photographers, seven members of the media had no luggage upon arrival, and five of them have “gone the whole trip without them.” He complained that RAM refused to even give them a lost luggage reference number and accused RAM of having “woeful service.”The company explained that for purely operational reasons, the three photographers’ luggage had to be transported from London to Casablanca via Madrid through airlines other than RAM.The Duke and Duchess and their staff returned to London on Monday. read more

Giannini exits Gucci early as team scurries to redesign collection a tribute

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MILAN – The fashion curtain call is part of the ritual of the runway show, with each designer’s personality reflected in that final bow.Some, like Miuccia Prada, appear in the doorway for a nanosecond. Donatella Versace walks a good 10 metres (yards) out to salute the crowd, while Giorgio Armani stands perfectly lit in the darkened stage entrance.Monday was to be Frida Giannini’s last bow as creative director at Gucci’s menswear after a decade at the Florentine house — but that was not to be. The highly anticipated curtain call was cancelled without explanation. Instead, the bow went to a young design team that completely revamped the collection Giannini had prepared.Here are some highlights from menswear previews for next autumn and winter from the third day of Milan Fashion Week on Monday:A NEW GUCCI CHAPTERThe Gucci style team may have pulled off a fashion record. They designed and produced the menswear runway show for next winter in five days, after outgoing creative director Frida Giannini left sooner than had been announced.Giannini’s exit from the storied Florentine fashion house was announced last month by the French owners, Kering, which said she would leave after showing the men’s and women’s collections for autumn and winter 2016. No reason was given for the change of plans. Gucci’s press team on site Monday called the decision to redesign the collection from scratch “a new chapter.”A team of young designers, led by head accessories designer Alessandro Michele, came out and took a collective bow, to sustained applause. Gucci said a successor to Giannini would be announced “in due course.”GUCCI SALUTES THE FRENCH REPUBLICGucci’s androgynous collection, worn by both male and female models, appeared to be a tribute to French artists, intellectuals and revolutionaries in the wake of the twin terror attacks in Paris this month that have shaken Europe and the world.The hues of red, white and blue, the colours of the French flag, contributed to the sense of #jesuischarlie camaraderie that sprung up worldwide in the wake of the recent terror attacks in Paris.Many of the outfits suggested characters from France’s rich cultural history: A white shirt with a dark ribbon tied in a bow around the neck, worn with blue trousers and capped with a red beret, was reminiscent of a French school uniform. A more elaborately tied silken bow conjured the image of a poet. A fur-trimmed cape was befitting of an artist setting up his easel in a Parisian park.EMPORIO ARMANIMetallic brush strokes across classic fabrics and dramatic zipper placements defined the new Emporio Armani line, aimed at youthful-minded dressers.“I wanted to recapture some grit with a style that was not too aggressive, but with pride and refined materials and shapes,” Armani told reporters.Trousers come with a zip at the ankle, while more athletic cuts of pants carried the zip dramatically across a diagonal all the way down to the cuff. Armani continued his exploration of the jacket, creating new versions out of soft rough-cut jersey with a waistband in the back that gives it a blousy feel.The collection opened with a line of models dressed in ski racing bodysuits, a glimpse of his EA7 line of athletic wear — which the designer said in a little over four years has grown to revenues of 100 million euros. “Nothing to laugh about,” he said.EXPO’S FASHION AMBASSADORGiorgio Armani, who celebrates 40 years in the fashion business this year, has been appointed to the role of Expo 2015 fashion ambassador for the six-month world’s fair opening May 1.The 80-year-old designer is planning a gala runway show at his theatre to coincide with Expo’s opening. Armani said he won’t necessarily create a new Expo collection, and he hasn’t decided what elements of his collections he will highlight: menswear, womenswear or his highly prized Prive couture line.Armani also has invested 50 million euros to open an exhibit space called Silos where he will show a retrospective of his 40-year career “from the first clothes, to the last,” he said.UNDERWEAR AS EVENINGWEARAndrea Pompilio has given thermal underwear a major upgrade.In his second season at the 80-year-old Canali label, Pompilio created fine silk-cashmere pullovers reminiscent of thermal underwear, down to the ribbing on the cuff that peeked out form the jacket sleeve, and paired them with colorful tuxedoes in eye-popping shades of crimson and yellow. “I love it. This kind of almost underwear, but it becomes eveningwear,” the designer said backstage.Pompilio continues to put his stamp on the historic brand — in check patterns, this season more macro, and horizontal stripes, both abstract and graphic. The collection was among the most composed on the Milan runway, with a strong focus on elegant men’s suits, in keeping with the Canali DNA, combining with softer, less formal sweaters. Looks were finished with hybrid mountaineering shoes with metal rivet lace holders, meant for urban terrain. by Colleen Barry, The Associated Press Posted Jan 19, 2015 9:33 am MDT A model wears a creation for Gucci men’s Fall-Winter 2015-2016 collection, part of the Milan Fashion Week, unveiled in Milan, Italy, Monday, Jan. 19, 2015.

September market booms with vans leading growth

Heavy vans again gave most of the improvement in the LCV sector. September market booms, with vans leading growth The rush for heavy truck registrations, the strength of markets last year and the slowdown in some sectors of the economy may mean a modest slowdown in the final quarter. However, the strong base reported over the nine months of this year should mean total CV registrations in 2001 beat last year’s level.DownloadClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) ‘September is close to an all-time record for CV registrations,’ said Christopher Macgowan, chief executive at the SMMT. ‘Once again, van registrations were very good, particularly for the heavier models. The increase in heavier truck models is very welcome, as trucks are a good barometer of the nation’s economic health. And September’s truck registrations suggest the underlying economy is still quite healthy.’ The growth set in the September market, at almost 16 per cent, is by far the strongest monthly increase in demand this year, reflecting the strength of domestic demand. Despite the heightened mood of downside risks to economic and market growth in the final quarter, 2001 is likely to see total new CV registrations firmly up on last year’s total of 298,043. September van registrations soar This strong performance boosted the year-to-date figure to 239,686 units – a 4.1 per cent rise over the same period last year. Light commercial vehicle registrations lead growth in total CV demand LCV registrations grew strongly for the year to June but slowed in July. They grew again in August and September’s figures show a very firm return to strong growth. Total LCV registrations rose by 14.5 per cent in September. Their share of all CV registrations for the month at 80.6 per cent was down from 81.4 per cent at the same month last year. The heavier vans in the 2.6-3.5 tonnes weight category were again the focus of the growth momentum in overall LCV demand, with an extra 5,228 vans, a growth rate of 33.7 per cent compared with September 2000 volumes. LCV demand over the year to date was up 4.6 per cent. For the year to September, all LCV registrations are up by 4.6 per cent, year on year with the heavier vans (2.6-3.5 tonnes) showing a growth of 16.8 per cent over the same period. Total truck registrations rise again Truck registrations rose by 21 per cent in September and 3.9 per cent for the first nine months of the year. September registrations were partly driven up by the need to register Euro 2 specification trucks before the end of the month, as all new registrations from 1 October will have to be to Euro 3 specifications. However, underlying demand still looks reasonably good. As a group, rigid registrations were up by a very impressive 30.4 per cent for the month, with all weight categories recording year on year increases for the month. For the first nine months of the year a healthy 7.9 per cent growth was also set. Monthly growth in artic registrations has been erratic for much of the year. But following on from a 16.4 per cent increase in August, registrations for September were again up by 9 per cent compared to the same time last year. This helped cut the growth deficit for the nine months to date to minus 3.6 per cent relative to the same period in 2000. Bus and coach registrations recovering? Bus and coach registrations rose in September, albeit against September 2000 registrations that showed a very sharp drop. This, alongside growth last month, is a positive sign after the year-long fall that started in the summer of 2000 and suggests that the fall in demand may have bottomed-out. The SMMT expects that recovery in bus and coach demand will be slow, but the last couple of months have shown some encouraging signs at last. September registrations have shown good new across all sectors of the UK commercial vehicle market. Light commercials still show most growth but heavy truck registrations have bounced back. They are well up on earlier expectations, though this is partly due to the need to register remaining Euro 2 models before 1 October. September registrations were up 15.7 per cent to their highest monthly total since August 1989, the third highest month on record. LCV registrations rose 14.5 per cent in September, the extra 4,695 units relative to last September giving most of the overall market’s growth. read more

This tiny robotic dragonfly drone only costs 119

first_imgQuadrotors are becoming more prevalent, but if TechJect has their way, their new dragonfly drone will be the wave of the miniature robotic flying future. Project coifounders Jayant Ratti and Emanuel Jones received a one million dollar grant from the US Air Force to develop the Dragonfly, but are now offering the unit to the public for the price of just $119. The project was put up for funding on Indiegogo with a minimum funding goal of $110,000, and at the time of this writing, is over $800,000.Ratti and Jones claim the unit is useful for more than just the usual quadcopter hobby flying, noting that the Dragonfly could make the perfect spy drone, citing the initial development for the Air Force as proof. The designers also state the current prototype weighs less than one ounce, comparing the weight to that of one AA battery, in other words, much lighter than a standard quadcopter. The unit also comes equipped with cameras and can be piloted by a device as common as an iPhone or tablet.Ratti and Jones claim the unit is indistinguishable from a regular insect found in the wild, but we’re hoping they meant that about the finalized product, because the prototypes shown on the project page look to be easily discernable from real insects.Considering the Dragonfly’s spybot origins, TechJect is pushing its photography applications on potential customers who don’t want to illegally spy on unsuspecting people. The company suggests the Dragonfly could provide the perfect up-close sports shot, tailing the action, but being small enough to stay out of the way. Considering the unit can seamlessly switch from hover mode (like a helicopter) to fly mode (like a plane), it should actually be maneuverable enough to pull off some pretty complicated aerial techniques. The small size makes it fairly portable, able to be carried just about anywhere should the need for it arise.The Dragonfly is customizable upon purchase — the color of its body, the design of its wings, and various upgrades like different types of cameras. The unit also comes with its own SDK, so more advanced users can customize the Dragonfly as much as their know-how will allow.Since the project is on Indiegogo, funding it will net you some units and more. From a pledge of $119 snagging you a noiseless Alpha Dragonfly unit, to a pledge of $949 nabbing you 17 Dragonfly units of various models, there are some pretty desirable pledges (ranging up to $2899) should you want to have your own army of spybots roving your neighborhood.Learn more about the project or invest at Indiegogo.last_img read more

The 22yearold attracting Premier League interest who lit up todays World Cup

Des îles solaires artificielles pour produire de lénergie propre à découvrir en

first_imgDes îles solaires artificielles pour produire de l’énergie propre, à découvrir en vidéoMonde – Imaginez. En plein océan, des îles artificielles en forme de plates-formes flottantes, conçues pour récupérer l’énergie solaire avant de l’acheminer vers la terre ferme. Le concept, encore au stade du prototype, existe et est déjà développé par plusieurs entreprises. Installées si possible dans une région à ensoleillement garanti pour maximiser la production d’énergie, ces structures développées par deux entreprises distinctes (Nolaris en Suisse et GreenFix Energy en Californie) reposent sur la technologie de l’énergie solaire à concentration, sous la forme de ce qu’on appelle “îles solaires”.Les plates-formes de Nolaris sont équipées d’un système de rotation leur permettant de suivre les mouvements du Soleil. Des miroirs reflétant les rayons lumineux sur des tubes contenant de l’eau permettent de générer de la vapeur à haute température (250ºC pour une pression de 60 bars), acheminée sur la terre ferme pour la production d’électricité. Ce système permettrait également de produire de l’eau douce par désalinisation ou de l’hydrogène par un système d’électrolyse.Un prototype de 80 mètres de diamètre a été construit sur la terre ferme dans le désert de Ras Al Khaimah (Emirats arabes unis). A terme, Nolaris espère commercialiser des îles solaires de 5 km² déplaçables à volonté.À lire aussiUn plongeur se fait attaquer par un lion de merGreenFix Energy combine cette technologie de l’énergie solaire à concentration aux technologies issues de l’énergie thermique des mers (ETM). Cette dernière exploite la différence de température entre les eaux profondes et la surface des océans, constamment réchauffée par le Soleil. Capturant également la chaleur dégagée par les capteurs solaires sous forme de vapeur d’eau, des îles géantes de 1 à 3 km² pourraient ici produire de l’électricité, de l’eau douce et de l’hydrogène en quantités industrielles. Comme l’explique notre partenaire Radiocom.org, ces projets ambitieux n’en sont pour l’instant qu’au stade du financement ou du prototype. Ils témoignent néanmoins de l’effervescence qui règne actuellement dans les domaines de la recherche et du développement pour la mise au point de systèmes de production d’énergie renouvelable non polluante.

New 3DS XL has a superior IPS display the New 3DS does

first_imgWhen Sony started introducing the PS Vita Slim as a replacement for the 1st-gen PS, Vita do you remember what the main talking point was? The display. Sony shifted from OLED to LCD for the new model, and a lot of gamers were not very happy about it. In the end the compromise wasn’t too bad, and the other benefits of the Slim model made it a good enough replacement handheld.With the launch of the New 3DS and New 3DS XL, it seems Nintendo has introduced a similar, albeit much more noticeable display change. However, they’ve kept very quiet on the fact this has happened beyond a listing on a Japanese Wikipedia spec sheet.The older model 3DS and 3DS XL used TN panels for both the upper and lower displays. With the new models, the New 3DS retains the TN panels for both screen, but the New 3DS XL uses an IPS panel for its upper non-touch display. The benefits of doing this are clear to see.Both TN and IPS panels have their advantages and disadvantages, but IPS is the superior of the two in this situation. IPS has much better color accuracy from all viewing angles, as well as displaying much clearer images and having a more stable response time. They do use roughly 15 percent more power than TN panels, though. This may explain why Nintendo only included one in the larger 3DS as it has the battery to cope.I’ve included some comparison shots in this post that compare the old 3DS XL TN panel with the New 3DS XL IPS panel. You can clearly see how much crisper and vibrant the image is, and it makes the new XL the better choice, not only over the older hardware, but also over the smaller New 3DS.So if you are undecided on which model to get, I think this screen difference will push a lot of people to the XL model because of the better colors and viewing angle benefits. However, if the larger model doesn’t fit your needs, the New 3DS display is still of a higher quality than the older models, and you still get the other benefits (faster processor/wireless, better 3D, C-stick, ability to play some newer games including Xenoblade Chronicles).Of course, if you’re reading this in North America then Nintendo has already made the choice for you as you can only buy the New 3DS XL![Images courtesy of wellthedudeabides on Imgur]last_img read more

One app, Tempo, is trying to make the experience a bit easier, taking a big data approach to your schedule and turning your calendar into a personal assistant.The free calendar app was created while founder Raj Singh was an Entrepreneur in Residence at Menlo Park, Calif.-based research institute SRI International, the birthplace of Apple’s personal assistant Siri. Tempo uses some of the same technology found in Siri. But where Siri requires you to ask a question and then get an answer, Tempo instead tries to anticipate what information you need, and provide it, before you even know you need it.“We like to say that it looks like a calendar, but it feels like an assistant,” Singh says.Tempo works alongside your existing calendar, adding rich information to each entry to make you more informed and better prepared for each meeting. Paired with your email and LinkedIn account, the app can bring in relevant information about each person you’re meeting with, the business they work for and any email or documents you might have relating to the meeting.Related: 3 Web-Based Tools You Probably Haven’t Heard of But Definitely Should Be UsingWhen you start communicating with someone over email, Tempo can automatically create an address book entry for that person. The app can also identify phone numbers in the signature line of emails, incorporating them automatically into your address book as well.And get this: Come meeting time, Tempo provides driving directions to your off-site meeting, or will dial you in — including access codes — to a conference call. If you’re running late, the app can text or email everyone in the meeting to let them know with a single tap.All that additional data is one of the things Singh feels sets Tempo apart from its competition.“I think the key difference is how we attack it [the calendar] as a sort of big data problem,” he says.Related: 5 Gadgets to Make Your Home a ‘Smarter’ PlaceSince its launch in February the app has been used to find and organize more than 15 million contacts for users, and has processed over 1 billion emails and documents.Singh says he sees a future where Tempo’s data could be used to determine things like how many sales calls it really takes to make a deal or what Manhattan Starbucks is most popular for meetings on a Tuesday.He also sees that data being exceptionally useful when layered on top of a tool like LinkedIn. Rather than just being able to see that two people are connected on the service, Tempo could show you how strong the connection is based on the number of meetings and emails between the two.Singh says the more Tempo learns, the more assistant-like it will become.Tempo is available now for iOS devices from the App Store, with support for other platforms expected in the future.Related: 5 Habits of Productivity App Super Users Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.
