Break out your Jerry Garcia ties — they won’t be out of place when Australian carrier Qantas hands out colourful new international business class amenity kits from the start of May.The Australian carrier has selected 16 works from some of Australia’s leading artists, photographers and digital influencers to give passengers collectible pieces to take home. Amenity kits have a myriad of post-flight uses so it’s not unusual for passengers to take the bags with them.The sixteen amenity kits – eight each for men and women — feature names such as Fairy Bread, 7000 Ironbarks and Maaate.They include pop culture, photography, fine art, abstract landscape, Indigenous art and textile design.Two designs will launch every few months.“As the national carrier, we’re pleased to support talented Aussies telling uniquely Australian stories through their artwork and share them with a global audience,” Qantas group executive brand, marketing & corporate Affairs Olivia Wirth said.“Along with inflight pyjamas, we know amenity kits are an important part of the international Business class experience. Customers love the functionality of our kits and many use them after their flight as make-up bags, an evening clutch or to carry their mobile phones. So, the exposure is broad.”The airline’s support for the arts includes a joint acquisition program for contemporary Australian art with Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art and Tate in the UK as well as support for organisations such as the National Gallery of Australia, Opera Australia, Australian Ballet and Bangarra Dance Theatre.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest 180404_RyanMartinRains blew past expectations yesterday. We way undershot the level of moisture that ended up coming through. Rain is still trying to exit the state to the east this morning, and even though there was a lot more than we wanted or needed…it does not change the fact that bi-polar Mother Nature has decided she wants more winter.Cold air started to blast in to the far northwest part of the state early this morning, and will continue to sink south and east through the day. With this cold air arrival, we can’t rule out a little bit of light snow in NW Ohio this morning, and as the day wears on it can become a bigger part of the forecast in north central and northeast Ohio. Most of the snowflakes stay north of US 30, but we won’t rule it out completely in a few isolated areas farther south. In north central and northeast parts of the state, we can see lake enhancement bolster the snow chances this afternoon and evening.Clouds mix with some sun tomorrow and then another fast moving wave of moisture moves in over the northern third of the state overnight Thursday night. This likely brings light snow and flurries that can leave a coating to an inch from US 30 northward from midnight Thursday night to sunrise Friday morning. The rest of the state looks dry through the daytime hours Friday.Overnight Friday night through Saturday moisture pushes up over the southern half of the state. This will trigger mostly snow from I-70 southward, and the best accumulations will be from US 50 southward. Liquid equivalent precipitation will be from .25”-.6” meaning we can easily see several inches of snow in the south. Everything is done by Saturday midday.The Saturday and Sunday look to be mostly dry. High pressure moves across the state Saturday and we have some minor south winds in for Sunday. Still, cold air rules the weekend, and we see only minor moderation in temps for Sunday. South and southeast winds do develop Sunday afternoon ahead of our next system early next week, allowing temps to get back closer to normal.Moisture is back to start next week. Overnight Sunday night low pressure moves into the state. The system brings two waves of moisture, both triggering mostly wet snow. The first wave from midnight Sunday through Monday brings a coating to an inch or two to about 70% of the state. Then a second wave moves through Tuesday, with more intense precipitation .WE can see several inches of snow over 40% of the state, but there can be some rain mixing in, mostly over the southern third of the state. Still, temps are cold enough for mostly snow. Total liquid equivalent precipitation from the two waves Monday and Tuesday can be .25”-.7” with 80% coverage. We will hone on snow potential more at the end of the week.We finally put together about 36 hours of dry weather for the entire state from Wednesday through next Thursday midday. Next Thursday afternoon, precipitation is back, but with south winds, temps moderate just enough to be looking at all rain. Temps will not be above normal, but will not be quite so cold.So, to put it in blunt terms, we see no day over the next 10 with temps above normal, and 9 of them will be below to well below normal. This colder surge has caused us to have to talk up snow much more this morning, and lessen our thoughts of rain. Soil temps will stay in the 30s through mid-month…and there can be no talk what-so-ever on field work through mid-month either. It’s not what we want to hear, but it is the truth. The precipitation forecast may get tweaked, but make no mistake…the pattern is cold and damp. The maps below show total 10 day snow accumulations (now through next Friday) at top, and total 10 day liquid equivalent precipitation at bottom.
A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Long gone are the days where magicians would invite viewers to participate in a global magic trick on their TV sets – the iPad is the new magicians friend, it seems. Online video sharing sites like YouTube have created a place for talented street magicians like David Blaine to share their amazing videos with the world. Perhaps the magician seen in this video will adopt his trick of pulling a sandwich out of a print advertisement for the iPad.Flying High With the iPadKim Heras of The Next Web reported today that budget airline Jetstar would be renting iPads to flyers aboard trips longer than 90 minutes. The devices, which can be rented for $10, will come preloaded with books, movies, TV shows and games for the passengers to enjoy while soaring at 30,000 feet. Not only is this an incentive for travelers to pick Jetstar, but it is great marketing for Apple which can put a device in your hand for a limited amount of time – just enough, perhaps, to convince you to buy one.Bluebox, the U.K.-based company providing the iPad service for Jetstar, should be rolling this out to other airlines in the near future, says Heras. Of course, this service would be greatly bolstered by the proliferation of in-flight WiFi, which is slowly migrating across airlines in the U.S. and internationally. Heras hits the nail on the head, however, stating that the real killer app is allowing passengers to stream the entertainment features straight to their own devices without the rental.Other iPad SightingsIt’s clear that the iPad has quickly become a iconic representation of cutting edge technology and wealthy early adopter geek toy. If you have other great examples of the iPad being used in new and interesting ways, send them our way or post a comment below.

Tags:#Apple#web Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… As announced yesterday, Apple has sold 2 million iPads in its first 2 months of production. With that many iPads out in the world (and mostly in the U.S.), it’s no surprise that iPads are popping up everywhere. From the device’s first celebrity appearance with Stephen Colbert on the Colbert Report to being spotted in the lap of Poker pro Andy Bloch at the World Series of Poker, the iPad has quickly become a fairly ubiquitous gadget. To explore just how popular the gadget is, here’s a few examples of the iPad in the wild that you may not have seen yet.European Parliament Hands Out iPads to All MembersLast month a Belgian newspaper reported that the European Union would be providing iPads to each member of the European Parliament. For those keeping score, that’s 736 people for a grand total of anywhere between 300,000 and 600,000 in iPad sales depending on the model. Additionally, the money is being taken from a taxpayer budget of 5 million and could represent as much as 12% of the budget spending.iPads in America, however, are still banned from the House and Senate floors where similar technologies, like laptops, have remained absent. The EU says they are passing out the iPads to parliament members to make them more accessible to their constituency, but shouldn’t that responsibility be up to the members themselves?The iPad Street MagicianThe iPad apparently isn’t just good for browsing the web and watching video in style. It can also bend spoons, and make books, birds and money appear out of thin air. At least that’s what one Japanese street magician wants you to believe. By combining some sleight of hand, camera trickery, rehearsed timing and a personalized iPad video, this magician, Shinya, proves that the iPad can be a useful tool for magicians. chris cameron 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market

It’s a relatively secretive piece of technology. So secretive, that authorities don’t even like to admit they use it. But the police are now using it to gather data from cellphones in Canadian cities. What can they do with that data? Depends on who you ask. Should you be worried? They say no, and privacy experts disagree—so in other words, it’s another story about what we should expect when we walk around in public.What are they collecting? How does it help solve crimes? What rights does the public have to their smartphones data signature? What’s the logical extension of increased use of this technology? And, for the crimes it’s supposed to solve, does it work?GUEST: Kate Allen, Science and Technology reporter, Toronto StarAudio Playerhttp://media.blubrry.com/thebigstory/s/radio.pmd.rogersdigitalmedia.com/podcasts/thebigstory/tbs_03292019.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.You can subscribe to The Big Story podcast on iTunes or Google Play.You can also find it at thebigstorypodcast.ca.
