Liquid cooling lets the Alienware M18x run at 44GHz

first_imgChoosing to use a laptop over a desktop machine usually means making a performance compromise. You can’t get as much performance out of a laptop compared to a PC, and when you do increase performance battery life suffers. Another major issue is one of heat. In such an small area are packed many hot running components such as the CPU, GPU, and RAM. Keeping them all cool is difficult, and the noise from fans also has to be managed so as not to be too distracting.Overclocking a laptop is possible, but comes with risks. Typically the cooling included in a laptop is adequate, meaning at stock speeds the machine will get warm, but won’t overheat. As soon as you start overclocking the cooling can quickly fail leaving you with an unstable machine.Asetek believes it has a solution to this problem: liquid cooling for laptops. It’s not a new method of cooling by any means, but it does offer a major advantage over heatsink and fan cooling due to the fact multiple components can be cooled through a single system.The company has developed a new slim form factor liquid cooling system for use in both performance laptops and all-in-one PCs. To demonstrate what their system is capable of, Asetek installed the liquid cooling unit in an Alienware M18x laptop and started overclocking.The end result was an increase in the Core i7 CPU speed to 4.4GHz, up from 3.5GHz (Turbo Clock Speed). The GPU speed was increased from 600MHz to 800MHz. In real terms that saw benchmarks results increase 18% in 3D Mark 11, 16% in PCMark Vantage, and 23% in 3D Mark Vantage. At the same time the laptop is producing less noise due to a lack of fans, and less heat due to better thermal management from the liquid cooling. Asetek also claim the standard cooling included with the laptop could not cope with the CPU and GPU running at these speeds.One area not touched on is power requirements. Is this liquid cooling system going to draw more power than the equivalent heatsink/fan solution? If not, then it does look like a better solution for performance laptops. It also makes it possible to use faster stock chips rather than overclocking because more heat can be dealt with.Whether any manufacturers decide to use Asetek’s solution depends on the power use mentioned above and how much the system costs.Read more at Aseteklast_img read more

These are all the Irish cities that are hiking business rates this

first_img Image: Sasko Lazarov Take me to Fora Get the top business news from Fora delivered to your inbox: Short URL These are all the Irish cities that are hiking business rates this year Many councils have opted to increase commercial levies to shore up their budgets. 15,704 Views 18 Comments Sunday 29 Jan 2017, 8:15 AM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Share Tweet Email1 Jan 29th 2017, 8:15 AM By Fora Staff Image: Sasko Lazarov BUSINESSES IN URBAN hubs across Ireland face commercial rates hikes of up to 5% this year as many councils try to shore up their balance sheets with the extra revenue.However a Fora analysis of the main metropolitan areas shows a wide range of approaches as the economy recovers, with several local authorities opting to keep rates on hold for traders.Commercial rates are a property tax on business premises, and they account for a large chunk of Irish city and county councils’ annual incomes. These rates are paid by the business that either owns or leases a commercial building.They are calculated using a multiplier – set by the council – to a value for the property determined by the Commissioner of Valuation.Businesses can appeal the valuation to an independent tribunal, which they can also appeal to the high court, however this process doesn’t affect the council’s multiplier – which is set as part of the authority’s voted budget.Going upDublin City CouncilAs part of its approved budget for 2017, elected members of Dublin City Council (DCC) voted to increase commercial rates by 0.78% in a move to help address the council’s budget shortfall.Last year, reported that DCC was facing a €15 million budget deficit and an increase in commercial rates was mooted to help balance the books.The budget noted:“All sources of funding are important, however, commercial rates are especially important. Dublin City Council services support commercial activity and so it is appropriate that commercial entities makes a contribution for their trading environment. This contribution must be appropriate and not at a level which dampens trade and removes potential for growth.”This is the first rate increase to commercial property rates by DCC councillors since 2009 and changes are effective of the January 2017. Source: Dublin City CouncilDún Laoghaire-Rathdown County CouncilIn its annual budget for 2017, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council also opted to increase commercial rates this year.The council said it needed to fund additional services and counteract extra costs in 2017, which led to a 1.5% increase in commercial rates.It said “all available options were examined” when trying to meet the need for a bigger budget.The council also noted that commercial rates had previously gone down by 8.5% since 2010. This reduction in rates has resulted in a €5 million decrease in its revenue from commercial rates.However, in a bid to offset the burden of the increase on small businesses, an SME Support Grant has also been created.Under the scheme, businesses with rates bills below €10,000 per year will be able to shave 4% off the amount due. This group represents 72% of all businesses in the council area. DLR County Council income Source: DLR County CouncilCork City Council The council has increased its commercial rates by 1.25% for 2017.The rate hike is the first increase in eight years and is lower than the 2.9% increase originally put forward by council staff.The hike was approved by the city council to help offset its funding shortfall for the new year.According to a spokeswoman for Cork City Council, the increase in commercial rates would address half the authority’s €1.6 million funding deficit. Cork City Council income Source: Cork City CouncilThe rest of the shortfall will be made up in higher car parking fees and reduced spending on tourism promotion and housing.A rates incentive scheme to address commercial rates arrears has also been introduced by the council. Ratepayers that have an annual rate liability below €4,000 and pay on time are entitled to a 3% reduction on their 2018 fee.Limerick City and County CouncilFor 2017, the Limerick council has approved a 5% hike in commercial rates for businesses in both the city and county.The increase was brought about after a big drop in commercial rates income over the past few years. This year, the council is expecting just over €51.6 million from rates – €7.65 million less than it was taking in during 2011.Excluding Housing Assistance Payments (HAP), roughly one-third of all income for the local authority comes from commercial rates. Limerick City and County Council income Source: Limerick City and County CouncilThe council has also in place a SME rebate scheme to help smaller businesses to pay the rate.Under the plan, businesses paying €20,000 or less in rates would be entitled to rebates of up to 9%. This accounted for around 90% of the rated properties in the council area, it claimed.The council employs a separate scheme for tourism businesses that provides a 4% rebate for the firms whose rate charges are higher than the SME-related cap.No increasesHowever not all councils covering metropolitan areas plan to hike their commercial rates this year, with both Fingal and south Dublin councils deciding against increases.Fingal County Council has the lowest rate factor of all four Dublin local authorities, while it also has the highest compliance rate in the country for commercial rates at over 96% in 2015.Waterford and Cork County councils are also not increasing commercial rates for 2017.Up and downDue to a lack of parity between the rates for Galway City and County Council and Ballinasloe Town Council, rates cannot be increased in the county until Ballinsloe’s rate has been brought in line. This year, both councils have committed to bridge the gap by 50%.Similarly, Louth County Council is currently amending its commercial fees system to move towards a common rate for the region.Rates for businesses in both Dundalk and Drogheda have been reduced for 2017, while commercial levies are rising for those firms based outside the two hubs.Written by Killian Woods and posted on Fora.ielast_img read more

Facebook comment la nouvelle timeline vatelle servir aux marques

first_imgFacebook : comment la nouvelle timeline va-t-elle servir aux marques ?La nouvelle timeline de Facebook permet aux marques de se positionner différemment sur les profils des internautes.La nouvelle timeline de Facebook (sous forme de journal) va obliger les marques à aborder leurs présences sur le réseau social de façon différente. Ce changement de présentation du fil d’actus sur Facebook est loin de faire l’unanimité au sein des nombreux utilisateurs qui possèdent leur propre compte sur le site. Mais les marques sauront peut-être utiliser à leur avantage cette présentation, permettant de retrouver le déroulement chronologique des actions. La timeline offre la possibilité aux marques de s’intégrer directement sur le profil des utilisateurs grâce à des applications “social-by-design”. Selon Le Journal du Net, ces applications doivent être liées aux comportements sociaux du titulaire du compte. Par exemple, l’application Nike Run donne le nombre de kilomètres courus par l’utilisateur lors de sa dernière course, les scores des amis…D’autres applications peuvent faire “corps” avec les activités de l’utilisateur et être utiles, jusqu’à simplifier les actions du quotidien et les requêtes en ligne. Ces applications sociales “markettés” semblent donc tirer leur épingle du jeu sur la nouvelle timeline Facebook, et trouver une voie ludique chez ses utilisateurs.Le 3 janvier 2012 à 15:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Danny Ings lauds exceptional Southampton fans

first_imgSouthampton striker Danny Ings has attributed their 3-2 home win against Arsenal to their home support as they ended the Gunners’ 22-match unbeaten run on Sunday.Danny Ings scored a first-half brace, but Henrikh Mkhitaryan equalized twice to level the game.The former Liverpool striker then came off in the 71st minute for Charlie Austin who grabbed the winner five minutes before fulltime.“As you can imagine, the lads are buzzing,” Ings told the club’s website.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“It went throughout the club today. Everyone in the stands was exceptional – getting behind us like that really helps.“When you’ve got a lead and you’re holding on towards the end, and you know you’ve got the crowd behind you, it gives you that little bit of energy to see out the game.“It’s down to us boys to do it on the pitch, but when you know you’ve got the crowd behind you with every press you do, and every ball you regain they’re cheering you on, it does make a massive difference.

City tracks down stolen stormwater grates

first_imgNote to metal thieves: You don’t want to mess with the Vancouver Public Works Stormwater Maintenance and Operations Team.Team members turned detective after folks reported several missing stormwater grates within Vancouver’s city limits, according to a bulletin.Team members checked around and discovered that 11 were missing around town. More were stolen in the unincorporated area of the county.The problem was that the missing grates are old, rectangular and made of steel, the bulletin said. Each had been custom-made years ago to fit specific, poured-in-place stormwater catch basins.If the grates weren’t recovered, the city would have to spend about $2,250 in taxpayer money to have six of them custom-made, according to the bulletin from city public works spokeswoman Loretta Callahan and police spokeswoman Kim Kapp.So the stormwater team went into action.Chris Marler, a stormwater team supervisor, called several large scrap metal dealers and asked them to watch for the stolen grates.Bob Eichhorst, the other team supervisor, visited some of the smaller scrap metal buyers. He found six of the city’s catch basin grates and three more used for field and ditch inlets.Unfortunately, the city may have to spend money for custom-made replacements for several more grates that remain missing.Folks who find the grates are asked to call the Operations Center at 360-696-8177; those who see suspicious activity around grates are asked to call 911.The Vancouver Police Department is aware of the thefts, the bulletin said.John Branton: 360-735-4513 or read more

Interlinking Of KrishnaGodavari Rivers Kodandaram cautions

first_imgHyderabad: Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) chief Prof Kodandaram has felt that interlinking of Krishna and Godavari waters to divert water to Sicilian should not be done in a hasty manner. Such a project would cost State exchequer a lot and also does not offer big benefit as additional water in Srisailam has to be shared with Maharashtra and Karnataka States apart from Andhra Pradesh, he stressed. Also Read – Solve farmers problems, demands Congress in Kamareddy Advertise With Us Addressing the media at party office on Wednesday, Kodandaram said if 1,000 tmcft water of Telangana share was diverted to Srisailam and from it 400 tmcft was given to other States, what is the benefit for us, he questioned. He suggested that effective use of Godavari water by constructing projects at Kanthanapalli, Tummidihatti and also Dummugudam. Such measures would reduce burden on Krishna river, which can be utilised to meet the needs of South Telangana districts (erstwhile) including Mahbubnagar, Nalgonda and Ranga Reddy. Also Read – Woman found dead, relatives stage dharna in Kamareddy Advertise With Us While Godavari water can solve drinking water needs of the State capital, Manjira water can be supplied to Medak, parts of Ranga Reddy district etc, he felt. Kodandaram wanted both Telugu States Chief Ministers to address pending bifurcation issues that were unsolved for last five years, including division of ninth and tenth schedule institutions, resolving electricity staff and fourth class staff issues and also distribution of assets. Advertise With Us The TJS chief also faulted government’s decision to demolish existing Secretariat buildings and go for new construction of Secretariat and Assembly as both the projects are likely to cross Rs 800 crore budget. He said this was not a wise decision as public money has to be spent for needs of the public and not for CM’s needs. The government should get its priorities right and focus on constructing permanent buildings for the several residentials schools, across the State, that started functioning from temporary accommodation in the last few years. Also, public money should be used to improve facilities and infrastructure at Osmania General Hospital, he said. ” Of the Rs 1,870 crore earmarked for construction of buildings for residential schools, only Rs 470 crore (just 25 percent) was spent by the government. Children are the future of the nation and the need of the hour is spending public money for their needs to ensure quality education,” he said. TJS plenary on July 13 Meanwhile, TJS has decided to hold its first plenary in GHMC limits on July 13, where it will chalk out its plans and activities for the next one year. Pointing out that politics has become polluted with defection of elected representatives ruling the roost at present, Kodandaram said that TJS would debate on value based, people and issue focussed politics in the plenary meeting.last_img read more

Free additions include the (much more robust looking) Stage Builder, video editing features, and support for the new Smash World mobile app. But even more exciting, the update finally lets us play as first paid DLC character Joker from Persona 5. He brings the whole Persona universe with him including new stage Mementos, new music and Mii costumes, and even cool new stylistic flourishes.See for yourself.Part of what made Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, my favorite game of last year and the reason the Nintendo Switch ended up winning the year, so majestic was how packed with content it was. Every character ever. Over one hundred stages. Nearly a thousand songs. A brand new lengthy single-player campaign. More Spirits than you could ever recognize.AdChoices广告But the game was somewhat lacking when it came to bringing back cool side modes from other games in the series. There are plenty of options for playing the core fighting game offline, online, and against hordes of enemies. But that’s basically it. However, in a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate commercial, Nintendo may have accidentally revealed the return of one of the franchise’s coolest side activities.Did you see it? Right at the beginning of this trailer we see the Smash Bros. menu. However, in this slightly blurry version of the menu we can make out an option for “Stage Builder,” a feature from past games that’s currently absent in Ultimate. So it’s all but confirmed that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is getting a Stage Builder mode, probably coming later this month in the 3.0 update that also adds new DLC character Joker from Persona 5.At least in past games, Stage Builder is just what it sounds like, a way to build your own Smash Bros. arenas and share them online. In Brawl, this meant plopping different blocks and hazards into a grid, changing the theme and music for extra atmosphere. You could make a well of spikes or a bouncy castle. The Wii U had fewer pieces but you could draw more elaborate platform shapes with the GamePad touch screen. Hopefully Ultimate, true to its name, combines elements from both and then some. Super Mario Maker has really raised the bar for Nintendo level editors.So it’s really just a matter of time before we’ll all be making our own stages in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Hopefully a Nintendo Direct will provide more details soon. With Stage Builder coming back we also hope other past Smash modes return. A previous datamine that hinted at Stage Builder also mentioned Home-Run contest. And we’d love to Break The Targets again.For more on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate read our review and browse our guide on every character in the game.last_img read more

European Parliament wants Snowden NSA chief to testify on spying

first_imgRelated posts:Snowden wants asylum in Brazil: report Bolivia threatens U.S. Embassy closing after Snowden search Russians laud Venezuela’s asylum offer to Snowden Putin says Snowden in Moscow as Russia rejects U.S. demands LONDON — The European Parliament is gearing up to launch an investigation into the recently revealed NSA surveillance programs — and lawmakers are drawing up an interesting list of witnesses they want to interview about the snooping.In September, the parliament is set to begin a series of hearings as part of the inquiry, which was established following the exposure of sweeping spy efforts that extend across the world. Now, members of the parliament are putting forward names for individuals they want to call in to answer questions. Among those suggested so far are a series of high-profile figures at the center of the surveillance revelations, including Edward Snowden, the whistle-blower who leaked the secret documents on the spying; NSA chief Gen. Keith Alexander; and Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, who was passed the documents by Snowden and has published several scoops based on them in recent weeks.In the United States, the reaction to the surveillance leaks has primarily focused on the vast domestic phone records database, first revealed by the Guardian last month. But in Europe, the outrage has been over the PRISM Internet surveillance program, which reportedly enables the NSA to collect data on foreigners from major U.S. companies including Google, Apple, Microsoft and Yahoo. Politicians across Europe have also responded furiously to allegations that the U.S. government has been bugging European embassies and missions in apparent violation of a 1961 convention on diplomatic relations. And there has been a particularly strong outcry in Germany over reports that the NSA is collecting metadata on half a billion phone calls and emails across the country every month.Last week, at a meeting about the scope of its inquiry into the NSA’s surveillance, members of the European Parliament’s civil liberties committee agreed that they would invite U.S. authorities, surveillance and privacy experts, data protection authorities, and representatives from parliaments in EU members states to participate in a series of at least 12 public hearings scheduled for before the end of the year. This week, German member of the European Parliament Jan Albrecht published a list of individuals he is requesting be invited. Aside from Snowden and Greenwald, it includes a host of top surveillance experts, plus NSA whistle-blowers Thomas Drake and William Binney, who have both in recent years spoken out publicly about the agency’s growing spying capabilities. Dutch Member of the European Parliament Sophie In ‘t Veld, vice chair of the civil liberties committee, confirmed in an email this week that she intends to invite Gen. Alexander. The inquiry’s conclusions will eventually be presented in a report to the parliament and could have implications for data-sharing agreements between Europe and the United States.Snowden, no doubt, would like the opportunity to appear at one of the hearings. But he remains effectively stranded at a Moscow airport while he seeks temporary asylum in Russia. He apparently hopes to then move on to one of the Latin American nations that have offered him a safe haven — Venezuela, Bolivia and Nicaragua. Despite the anger in Europe over the spying Snowden has revealed, governments in the EU have not been rushing to welcome him with open arms. In a bizarre incident earlier this month, France, Spain, Italy and Portugal allegedly refused to allow Bolivian President Evo Morales’ jet to pass through their airspace after suspicions were raised that Snowden was on board. Bolivian officials blamed U.S. pressure for the debacle, describing it as a “hostile act” that had been orchestrated by the State Department.Gallagher is a London-based journalist who reports regularly on surveillance technology for Slate.© 2013, Slate Facebook Commentslast_img read more
