Scientists used to rely on metal bands on birds’ legs to find out how they got from here to there. Now, they can glue tiny radio transmitters to their shoulders and follow them in real time. What happened when Princeton scientists hijacked 30 white-crowned sparrows and took them from Seattle to New Jersey? Age has its advantages, it turns out. Read about it on PhysOrg and EurekAlert. The adults soon realized they were 3,000 miles off course, and adjusted their bearing to fly southwest toward their winter quarters in Mexico. The juveniles, who had never flown home before, flew directly south. This indicates that the chicks are born with an innate compass that works OK the first time, but experience helps the adults develop a global map that can make corrections. The white-crowned sparrow usually flies solo at night. Upon release, all the birds seemed a little disoriented at first. After a couple of days the adults converged on the correct orientation. The article did not say if the scientists were able to bring the lost youngsters home, because the devices apparently did not have receivers to which they could send commercials, like “Fly Southwest.” Hopefully they will enjoy Florida.Ongoing research into bird migration shows that it is a multi-faceted skill that employs magnetic fields, celestial navigation, smell, visual landmarks, and more. How the chicks of the Pacific Golden Plover fly from Alaska to the tiny specks of the Hawaiian islands, alone, across open ocean, using only an innate compass, is one of those wonders of nature that defies evolution. Time to enjoy Winged Migration again: a film whose photographic excellence and amazing content should adorn every home theater. Looks great in HDTV.(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now Because you can automate something doesn’t mean you should necessarily automate it. Because you can leverage technology to do something doesn’t mean that it is the right thing to do.Right now, you can automate some client interactions. You can set up a call tree, and you can give your clients or customers choices to “help” them to get to the person they need. You can also automate a greeting to remind them that their “business is very important to you,” and that “you appreciate” them.You can also automate your prospecting efforts. You can set up templates, customize those templates by stakeholder title and perceived interest, and email your prospects to request an appointment. You can even automate your nurturing efforts by setting up a workflow that automatically sends your prospect value-creating content without your ever making an ask.You can automate the collection of feedback from your clients after they make a purchase. This makes the collection of information easier and faster for both you and your client.In a world that is becoming more and more transactional, the drive for efficiency increasingly looks to technology to automate as much as possible.Automation drives down costs. It eliminates human errors, along with the humans that are prone to making them. It provides certainty that things will be scheduled, completed, monitored, and measured. And for some companies and some outcomes, this is going to be okay.But when you are playing at a higher level, creating and capturing more value, efficiency isn’t the goal.A human being helping connect you to the person you need to speak to creates greater value than a call tree that first requests your customers language, asks them to pay attention because their choices have changed, and then offers them 8 different choices in a voice that makes it difficult to pay attention.A human being showing a real interest in developing a relationship with you creates a very different experience than a slightly customized email with a clumsy ask at the end. A human being that has personally sent you ideas, in their own handwriting, with highlighted passages and personal notes, is different than an automation funnel.The salesperson who sold you something calling you to follow up to ensure you are 100% satisfied and that you are getting the outcome you bought and paid for is different than a survey link being sent my email. One says “I care about you” as a person, and as a client. The other says that your company is checking the box.You might be reading this list and saying to yourself, “But, Iannarino, these are now all very common business practices,” and you would be correct. But if you want to differentiate yourself, your company, and your offering, you need to be uncommon. If you want trusted relationships and clients-for-life, then you need to make things personal, not automate them.But “Stop automating human interactions,” is a bit hyperbolic. There are cases where it may be a good decision. But if you sell business-to-business, eliminating the human connection in your business in exchange for automation destroys customer intimacy. If you are an individual contributor, think deeply about what you are automating, and what you are making personal.

Kalpana Chakravarthy at StreelakhaPlacards, posters, black flags and silence are characteristic of Vimochana’s protests. But that is only when they take to the streets to protest atrocities against women or seek justice. Fortunately there is nothing dull or sad about Streelekha-a sister concern of Vimochana- the first of its kind,Kalpana Chakravarthy at StreelakhaPlacards, posters, black flags and silence are characteristic of Vimochana’s protests. But that is only when they take to the streets to protest atrocities against women or seek justice. Fortunately there is nothing dull or sad about Streelekha-a sister concern of Vimochana- the first of its kind bookshop in the country that stocks a wide range of feminist writings and literature.Streelekha occupies a single room in the beautiful exposed brick construction and is run efficiently by Kalpana Chakravarthy sporting a bindi the size of a one rupee coin.White wooden shelves stand out against red walls and are stocked with books that range from feminist writings and women’s issues related literature to fiction and poetry. There are comfortable wooden stools and chairs with fluffy cushions to give you a relaxed time.Donna Fernandes, the founder says that Streelekha was born out of a need to develop an alternative to the mainstream publishing world that didn’t offer much on women writing and was limited to cooking and beauty tips.” Streelekha, along with Vimochana, has been in existence since 1985, and has served as an academic resource center for research scholars and writers. Chakravarthy and Fernandes reminisce about the golden years two decades ago when they would cart back cartons of books from feminist fares across the world. “We would ask them to donate all the books that they didn’t sell and we would bring it back for Streelekha.” Times have changed and both admit that there is a lot more serious writing today, thanks to the inclusion of women’s studies in universities. Streelekha’s biggest challenge is to sustain itself in a market-driven economy where commercial book shops offer massive discounts at sales. Besides stocking books, Streelekha and Vimochana hold poetry readings and meetings at the space. Most recently Streelekha has ventured into publishing and has three new titles in English and Kannada.Those seeking writings on womens issues or books by women should head to Streelekha and while there, dont even think of asking for Mills and Boon or chicklit.advertisement

Twitter/@theACCESPN released a roundtable discussion Friday morning in which its college football writers decide just how many College Football Playoff contenders there are in each conference heading into 2016. As you’d expect, ESPN believes the ACC has two playoff contenders – Clemson and Florida State.From ESPN’s Andrea Adelson:For the first time, the ACC has multiple playoff contenders headed into the season: Clemson and Florida State. Their emergence has begun to change the narrative about ACC football, which has muscled its way into the national conversation over the past three seasons. So far, the league is 2-for-2 in getting teams into the College Football Playoff. (It also has the last BCS champion.) Whether it goes 3-for-3 largely depends on its two best teams: The Tigers hope to get back into the playoff for a second straight season behind Deshaun Watsonand seven other returning starters on offense; Florida State hopes to take down the Tigers behind Dalvin Cook and a stout defensive front. They meet Oct. 29 in Tallahassee, Florida. The winner has the inside track, though it probably has to end up undefeated to assure its playoff spot.The ACC has been decided during the annual meeting between the Seminoles and the Tigers for some time now, and that does’t appear to be changing in 2016. Louisville is a young, talented team that could cause some fits, and Miami has a leader in quarterback Brad Kaaya, but the conference will be won on October 29 in Tallahassee.

Actress and lung cancer advocate Valerie Harper and her husband Tony Cacciotti, actor Elliott Gould, and leaders in entertainment, politics, business and medicine will come together at the Lung Cancer Foundation of America’s (LCFA) “Lung Cancer – Bring on the Change!” event on Sunday, September 29, 2013 from 5 PM – 7 PM.The evening is hosted by producer Marta Kauffman and composer Michael Skloff in their Hancock Park home. Ms. Harper, who is currently fighting lung cancer that has occurred in the lining of her brain, is the special guest speaker. The evening is designed to bring attention to and raise funding for lung cancer, the USA’s number one cancer killer for both men and women.“It means so much to Tony and me to be able to support LCFA in its efforts to raise awareness and research funding for lung cancer. I’m still here, living, laughing, loving, dancing because of lung cancer research — but the only way I can be here in six months or six years is through new treatment options, or hopefully a cure,” said Ms. Harper.Kim Norris, a lung cancer widow and the president and co-founder of LCFA added, “Thanks to Marta and Michael, Val and Tony, and all the other co-hosts and supporters, we’ve had an overwhelming response to this event. I believe that changing the course of this devastating disease is absolutely possible. Millions of people have been deeply affected by lung cancer but because of an overall 5-year survival rate of only 16%, there are few survivors to stand up and speak out in support of research funding for the disease. That’s why this evening is so very important, and inspirational.”Guests will learn that lung cancer is the USA’s leading cancer killer, killing almost twice as many women as breast cancer and three times as many men as prostate cancer. The poor survival rate for lung cancer is a direct result of the lack of funding for lung cancer research. It is estimated that over 60% of new lung cancer diagnoses are in non-smokers – a combination of 45-50% former smokers (many who quit 10, 20, even 30 years prior to the onset of lung cancer) and 15% of people who have never smoked. Guests will be introduced to lung cancer advocates like Val, lung cancer researchers and the work of LCFA — an organization that exists to advocate for research funding.Find out more here.Source:PR Newswire
Things That Caught My EyeWe put some baseballs in an X-RayAre the balls juiced? Are material changes to the ball an influence on the spike in home runs analysts have found? Commissioner Manfred says that the balls have not changed, but a number of studies from journalistic outfits, this one included, seem to counter that idea. ESPN took the next logical step and did a CT scan on eight MLB balls. The finding? It surely looks like the core of the balls are less dense compared to the control balls from several years ago. Indeed, a layer of pink rubber in the core of the balls was 40 percent less dense in the dinger-era balls than the 2014-2015 era balls. [FiveThirtyEight]Lundqvist deserved betterThe New York Rangers made 11 of the 12 postseasons since the 2004-05 lockout, have won the sixth-most points, and failed to win a Stanley Cup. In the past week the Rangers have had a fire sale, all despite numbers that bear out goalie Henrik Lundqvist carrying much of the load for the team.

The Ohio State athletic department warned fans in need of tickets to OSU football’s homecoming game against Nebraska to beware of counterfeit tickets. The warning urged fans to purchase tickets from The Ohio State Athletics Ticket Office, OhioStateBuckeyes.com or Ticketmaster, the only authorized sellers of OSU athletics tickets. Tickets to the Nebraska game as well as all remaining home games can also be purchased through the Buckeyes TicketExchange at OhioStateBuckeyes.com/ticketexchange. TicketExchange is the only official ticket exchange site of OSU athletics and the only resale source that can guarantee the exchange of valid tickets, according to the Tuesday release. According to the message, fans that use any other source risk purchasing tickets that are “counterfeit, stolen or otherwise void, and as such will not allow the ticket holder admission into the event.” Dan Wallenberg, OSU athletics spokesman, said there have been no reports of counterfeit tickets this season, but there were some circulating toward the end of last year’s basketball season. “We realize it’s a big game and we’re just being proactive, making sure fans are aware that this could happen and to be wary of the possibility,” Wallenberg said. “Realizing the night game, the national TV, the demand for tickets for this particular game, we just wanted to get out in front of it.” OSU police chief Paul Denton did not immediately respond to The Lantern’s Tuesday evening request for comment regarding counterfeit tickets.
Niklas Sule has been left amazed by Manuel Neuer’s impressive comeback from injury after the goalkeeper played a competitive training match for GermanyThe Bayern Munich captain sustained a broken foot in September last year, which left him out of action for their entire campaign with Sven Ulreich having occupied his place in the squad since as they won a sixth successive Bundesliga title.However, Germany boss Joachim Low included Neuer in his preliminary squad for next month’s tournament in Russia with the aim of properly assessing the 32-year-old’s fitness levels before making a final decision.Neuer continued with his progress from injury by playing in a test match for the Germany u20 side against the senior side and completed 30 minutes.The captain now looks set to be confirmed in Low’s final 23-man squad and Sule could not hide his admiration for him, who he calls the “best keeper in the world”.“At first I couldn’t believe it, when Manu did his first training after four months out and sensationally saved one ball after the other. It was as if he had never left,” said the defender, according to Goal.“I hadn’t witnessed something like that before. His body language is simply incredible.Top 5 Bundesliga players to watch during the weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Bundesliga’s Top 5 players to watch next weekend.The German…“He is the best keeper in the world, and for me, it is great to play with him at the Bayern and cause him problems by shooting my swirling shots on goal.”A fit Neuer is normally the undisputed number one at Germany and assistant coach Thomas Schneider backed him to be ready to start if required.“The coaches Jogi [Low, head coach] and Andi [Kopke, goalkeeping coach] talked to Marc-Andre, who had a very good season and is an important part of the team since the Confederations Cup last year and who got even better this year,” he said.“But Manu is a complete goalkeeper. His name, the way he moves, his presence on the pitch and his technical skills. He has been named the world’s best goalkeeper for a reason.“Of course it is no easy situation for Marc now, but when you have such an unbelievably good goalkeeper in your team like Manuel, you want him to play.”Neuer is expected to play in his first proper competitive match against Austria on Saturday in a friendly.
England’s Danny Rose has started to understand how football can overwhelm people after experiences in the club game that he “wouldn’t wish on anybody”.Rose received an outpouring of goodwill from the public and fellow players after opening up about his struggles with mental health. He explained how a lengthy injury lay-off and the suicide of an uncle led him to visit a psychologist and spend a number of months on medication.The Tottenham left-back intends to help other sufferers after the World Cup, using his revelations to shine light on the side of professional football rarely seen.Asked why he is so honest, Rose told IRN via Evening Standard:“I don’t know, really.“It is the best job in the world, don’t get me wrong, but I think people seem to think there’s no other issues within football. You just get your money at the end of the month and you play every week.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“You know, there’s so much more to football than what people may see on a Saturday. I don’t believe in hiding that from people.“Even though I feel very privileged to play football, it’s not something I would – with the things I’ve experienced within the game – be shouting from the rooftops to recommend to people’s children to be a footballer.“Because there are a lot of things that happen on a day-to-day basis at club football that I wouldn’t wish on anybody.”Rose would not go into specifics but added:“There’s pressure, there’s politics – there’s loads of things.“There’s not just playing on a Saturday and you receiving your money at the end of the month. There’s so, so much more to football than what people see.
Everton boss Marco Silva says he is delighted to see Richarlison scoring goals but was more impressed with his all-around performance in the gameRicharlison grabbed a brace for 10-man Everton, however, they settled for a draw at the end in Silva’s first competitive game in charge.“It was an excellent performance from a player I know can play like this,” added Silva.“It’s not just his goals. He works hard, makes runs and I’m pleased to see him score two goals, but the most pleasing thing is the team performance.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding ar Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“I’m very proud of my players… To play nearly 50 minutes with ten men and show the level of performance that we did against a good side is very pleasing.“After we went 1-0 up, perhaps we could have done more but the display in the second half was outstanding, and the team did well.“We could have won, but I think we can be pleased with how we played and go on from here for the rest of the season.”
Jack Wilshere revealed that Arsene Wenger’s departure from Arsenal in the summer led to his own exitThe 26-year-old midfielder signed for West Ham United on a three-year deal in July as a free agent after ending a 17-year association at Arsenal.Wilshere opted to leave the Emirates Stadium following talks with new manager Unai Emery over his role at the club.But Wilshere admits that Wenger would have convinced him to stay with the Gunners as the Frenchman would have ensured his place in the team.“If Arsene had stayed I would have stayed because of the influence he had in my career and the trust he had in me,” Wilshere told the Islington Gazette.Daniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.“He gave me the armband and respected me a lot. So, I had pretty much agreed to stay. And then he left and that changed things.“Arsene had said to me previously ‘stay and fight your way back into the team’. Because I knew Arsene and knew he had trust in me, I knew I could do that and fight my way into the team.“I knew that if I got myself fit and was training well that Arsene would put me in – and he did.“But things were changing at the club and they were going into a new era and maybe it was time for me to leave as well.”Wilshere, who has made four Premier League starts for West Ham, is currently sidelined with an ankle injury.

Share Waller Co. Sheriff talks about new recommendations for police & jail as result of #sandrabland death pic.twitter.com/pWxXTbOcsG— Florian Martin (@Florian_News887) April 12, 2016HEMPSTEAD, Texas (AP) — A panel reviewing the jail where Sandra Bland died last summer after being taken into custody has called for a major overhaul of its procedures and facilities.The panel issued its recommendations Tuesday. It says a new jail is needed because the current one is inadequate. The panel also called for improving digital access to information about inmates and purchasing body cameras for staff.One panelist, Craig Washington, said inmates are “entitled to be treated with dignity and respect.”Bland, who was black and from the Chicago area, died in the Waller County jail three days after her arrest. Authorities ruled it a suicide.Dashcam video captured a confrontation between Bland and Brian Encinia, the trooper who arrested her. Encinia was later fired and has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor perjury charge.Copyright 2016 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

In Texas, less than 30 percent of detained immigrants had legal representation from October 2000 to February 2018, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. Most immigrants facing deportation are forced to represent themselves in court proceedings, which can dramatically lower their chances of winning their case. “Studies have shown that you are anywhere from 10-14 times more likely to win your case if you have a lawyer than if you do not,” said Kate Vickery, Executive Director of the Houston Immigration Services Collaborative. “People get deported out of the United States without ever having the chance to actually even make their case or even knowing that there is something that they are, in fact, eligible for,” said Vickery. Groups involved in Deportation Defense Houston are staffing up so attorneys can start taking cases in June. YMCA International Services, BakerRipley and Justice For Our Neighbors of Houston are participating in the collaborative.

Works of artists from Portugal, Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Mozambique and India comprise the travelling exhibition underway at the India International Centre here. The series of uncanny artworks seem to tell a story. An anti-clock wise tour of the gallery indicates an evolution, a moving forward of time.Organised by Perve Galeria with support of the Portugal Embassy, the exhibition Lusophonies/Lusofonias display both modern and contemporary art by different generations of the Portuguese speaking countries or Lusophones which include Portugal, Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Mozambique and certain parts of India. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’All the artworks in the exhibition have a common connection, whether experiential or through a formal aesthetic, related to African roots. A troika of oxymoronic images, two from India and one from Africa, serves as a prologue to the collection which manifests the cross-cultural developments that followed the colonization across continents and the struggle against it.“The origin of this collection was the need to reflect on how lusophone countries saw and see Lusophonie, a plural and dialectical vision, full of discrepancies, ambiguities and mutual contamination about culture, society, and even about a common language,” says Nunes. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe show has been chronologically divided into three sections: ‘Colonialism’, ‘Independence’ and ‘Miscegenation and Diaspora.’ Moving from one period to another in the anthology portrays a clear evolution from the “tendency to use art as a revolutionary discourse” in colonies to the establishment of sovereign political regimes after independence.“In Portugal, the freedom of speech that followed several decades of repression was a symptom of the artistic development,” says Nunes. The final part of the Lusophonies exhibition represents the artistic development that has occurred over time extending up to the present, not only in the lusophone world, but also in the countries where artists today work about Lusophonie and African influence issues. Representation from India includes two photographs by Subodh Kerkar and a set of pots or ‘matkas’ usually used by women in Indian villages to carry water.Closing this chapter of exhibition, which speaks majorly of the African influence, is a box of postcard sized artworks, some of them suspended in the air through strings around it, by Nobel Laureate author Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The exhibition is set to be on display till February 15.
Kolkata: Primary autopsy reports of Class X student, who was found dead inside her school washroom on Friday, confirmed suicide.Police said the primary report mentioned hypoxia or lack of oxygen supply to the brain and body as the cause of death of the student of GD Birla Centre for Education in south Kolkata. The cut mark on her wrist was a second injury, which according to doctors was “self-implicating”. Doctors suspected that the girl died because of the polythene packet that she had tied up with strings, used to bind practical notebooks, to cover her head. The autopsy was done at SSKM hospital on Saturday. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata Police also confirmed that the girl had suicidal tendency. Even earlier, she had attempted to take the extreme step at home. “So far, investigation reveals that it was a case of suicide. While examining her mother, we found out that she had made similar attempts at home earlier,” said an investigating official. Bright, meritorious and trained in self-defence, she was always among the top five rank holders. Police said she had attended five periods before her death and behaved normally. Before leaving her classroom, she had told her friends that she would go to the sick room. However, CCTV footage showed that she instead went to the washroom with a few things in her hand.

Prima facie it appears to be a case of suicide, which very well-planned. She had spoken to her father before school and had asked him to get biryani from Hyderabad, when he returned from there,” said an investigating official. Her three-page suicide note had no overwriting and was flawless, said police. She also described how she was dying and that no one should be held responsible for her death. “She hasn’t held anyone responsible for her death in her suicide note. But her writing shows how upset she was and had a lot of hidden pain. She hasn’t addressed anyone in specific in her suicide note. She also thanked her parents for doing their best in her life. But has mentioned about some strange dark side of her life, which isn’t clear,” said police. Police suspected she might have consumed something before wrapping her head with a polythine, so that no one could hear her screams. However, that will be cleared in the detailed autopsy report. Police also suspected that she had learnt the procedure by watching web series or movies. “She was academically brilliant and would complete her syllabus much in advance. Her mother said she had wanted an admission in the Indian Statistical Institute in future and would often talk about it,” said police. Police are now examining her laptops and mobile phones. Chairperson of West Bengal Commission for Protection of Child Rights, Ananya Chakraborti, met the school authorities Saturday. “The school authorities are very shocked since they never found anything abnormal in her. But after the incident when they spoke to her mother, she apparently revealed that the girl had attempted suicide even before. Her parents didn’t inform the school authorities about it, otherwise they would have paid more attention and such an incident could have been averted,” Chakraborti said.Several guardians believed that lack of CCTV cameras inside washrooms make it easy for students to do anything secretly. An attendant outside the washroom could have avoided this incident in particular, they added. “This is an extremely unfortunate incident. It should be probed from all possible angle, be it any loophole on part of the school authorities, the education system or domestic environment,” said Suranjan Das, Vice Chancellor of Jadavpur University.

A Met Office Yellow Weather Warning for Snow is in force in Derbyshire until 11.55pm on Wednesday evening, with much of the Staffordshire Moorlands now covered by the same weather warning after it was extended by the Met Office at around 5am on Wednesday morning. Other roads in Derbyshire are also closed tonight – with motorists advised to avoid making unnecessary journeys. Speaking just after 6am on Wednesday morning a Derbyshire County Council spokesman confirmed the roads were still closed. He said: “Major disruption is expected on roads in some areas of the county this morning with extremely low temperatures causing treacherous conditions. “Temperatures plummeted to -9 degrees Celsius overnight − meaning grit fails to stop working fully to melt snow and ice. Read MoreWeather warning extended into North Staffordshire as ‘Beast from the East’ continues on Wednesday “Gritters and ploughs have been out throughout the night, and farmer contractors will be working to help clear routes this morning. “Conditions are particularly bad in the High Peak, where a number of routes remain closed: A57 Snake Pass, A6024 Holme Moss, A53 Leek Road, A537 Cat & Fiddle, Monks Road between Chunal and Charlesworth. “There is a strong possibility of ice – even on surfaces which have been repeatedly treated over the last couple of days in readiness for the so-called “Beast from the East”. “Please, only travel if essential in the affected areas.” Cheshire East Council’s Highways Department, which manages the other end of the A54 and A537, confirmed the two roads were still shut at 4am on Wednesday morning. A spokesman said: “The A54 and A537 Cat and Fiddle roads remain closed this morning due to ice and snow conditions, please use alternative routes. “We’re gritting all the primary gritting routes this morning, please drive with extreme caution this morning even on treated roads.” It is unclear when the affected roads will reopen at this stage. The A623 at Tideswell is still passable, the council spokesman added. Highways England closed the A628 at Woodhead Pass following an accident involving a lorry and a car but the westbound route had now reopened by 10pm on Tuesday night. A Highways England spokesman said: “The A628 Woodhead Pass is now passable westbound between the A616 and the A57 near Woodhead following a collision between a car and an HGV. “Weather conditions are challenging in the area, so please only travel if necessary.” Read MoreUpdate: Armed man arrested was carrying ‘garden stake’ The A537 Cat and Fiddle shortly after 10pm on Tuesday evening (Image: Cheshire East Council) Buxton Weather Watch, a social media page which forecasts and reports on weather conditions around the Peak District town said further snow showers were expected late on Tuesday night.

Elsewhere in the county the South West has seen considerable travel disruption today, while Yellow and Amber Weather Warnings are in place for much of the UK over the coming days. The A623 in Tideswell near Buxton last night (Image: Derbyshire County Council) What is a Met Office Weather Warning?The Met Office issue weather warnings when there is a risk of weather causing damage, disruption or danger to life. Generally warnings will be issued for heavy rain, wind, ice or snow. They come in three categories. Yellow: The lowest of the three. Yellow means you should plan ahead about potential disruption to travel and other day-to-day activities. These are the most common. Amber: A step up from Yellow, an Amber warning means there is an increased risk of disruption/danger to life and property. Red: These are only issued when ‘extreme weather’ is expected. When one is issued the Met Office advise immediate action is taken to keep yourself and others safe as widespread damage, disruption and risk to life is likely. Red warnings are extremely rare anywhere in the UK and almost unknown in North Staffordshire and South Cheshire.

Dozens of accidents have been reported on the section of the A51 – between Aston Marina, on the outskirts of Stone, and the A34 roundabout – in the past decade. It has sparked calls for the speed limit to be cut from 60mph to 40mph. Now Stone Town Council is writing to Staffordshire County Council to urge them to take action. Families say that stretch of the A51 is ‘dangerous’. The A51 at its entrance to Aston Marina, near Stone Councillor Mike Williamson said: “As a keen cyclist I used to cycle along the A51 to go to Sandon. But I have stopped doing that – it’s much too dangerous to consider going on a bicycle. “If I want to go to Sandon I go to The Star and cycle along the towpath. I would rather fall into the canal than be hit by someone going at 60mph.” Read MoreTop stories on StokeonTrentLive A stretch of the A51 between Aston Marina and the A34 roundabout Gill Howe, from Aston Lodge, said: “I’ve lived here for 22 years and this road has always been a problem.

Getting out of Aston Marina and pulling into Stone, when you need to slow down or speed up, is dangerous.” Read MorePlans revealed to fit all taxis with CCTV cameras to keep passengers safe – do you think it’s a good idea? Kat Davis, aged 40, added: “It will be a good idea to reduce the speed limit. There have been accidents and 40mph would be a sensible speed. I’ve witnessed a few near-misses and the bend in the road doesn’t help when people are doing 60mph. The filter lanes also mean that traffic is in the middle of the road with fast cars going past either side.” The roundabout of the A34 and the A51 near Stone A number of residents have written to the town council to support the campaign.

Global analyst firm CCS Insight has unveiled a series of thought-provoking predictions for 2019 and beyond at its annual event in Central London.Among its more interesting media-related forecasts is that SVOD platform Netflix will open its own branded cinema by 2022, a move that will allow it to diversify and promote its catalogue and increase loyalty among subscribers by offering special screenings.Among predictions regarding machine learning, autonomous cars and Facebook’s plans for extending its reach, CCS Insight also expects that, by 2023, unlimited data will be the default option for mobile tariffs in advanced markets.“As the value of mobile data continues to be eroded, competitive forces pressure operators to offer all-you-can-eat data bundles in the same way voice minutes and texts are sold today. Many tariff plans include unlimited data.”In the wireless arena, the company predicts that a “huge variation” in users’ experience of 5G in 2019/20 will result in a marketing headache. “Differing operator strategies will result in vastly different levels of performance and coverage. This will exacerbate the challenge of marketing 5G technology; it risks frustrating users as they try to compare oversimplified promises based on raw speed.”On the voice assistant front, the company expects more activity in the enterprise market from 2019. “With Amazon’s Alexa for Business already launched and Microsoft experiencing a growing number of queries into Office 365 from Alexa users, 2019 brings formal competition in speech assistants for enterprise/workplace.”Speech advances also mean it will be “possible to talk to almost every new connected consumer device sold in Western markets. Strong recent progress in speech recognition drives the trend, alongside greater integration with personal assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa.”Biometric-based smartphone security, phones with folding screens and increasing penetration of Chinese smartphone operating systems are other key features of CCS Insight’s crystal ball gazing. Returning to bricks and mortar, the company also anticipates Amazon buying a major retailer in Europe by 2019.CCS Insight CEO Shaun Collins said: “This year marks the biggest CCS Insight Predictions event to date. The sheer number of predictions reflects the expanding coverage of our research, from new topics like workplace collaboration and edge computing to mobile networks, devices and the Internet of things”.
