We admit defeat. This site isn’t usually shy of expressing a view on the issue of the day: we have this in common with other journals, MPs – and many of our readers. But we have to admit that the Huawei decision which Boris Johnson is set to make has us stumped.ConHome is in no position to know whether or not a distinction can really be made between core and non-core elements of the network. Or, to put it more plainly, if the Chinese company can be let into the second but kept out of the first. We don’t have the technical knowledge – and doubt whether the politicians who sound off on the matter one way or the other do so either.So the site has to proceed by hunch, prejudice – in what we hope is the best sense of the word – and above all by experience. Are the security services and the top echelons of the civil service right to say that there is nothing to fear?The Huawei question is in many respects unlike the HS2 one that we attempted to answer yesterday. But we are nagged by the uneasy feeling that in one respect they have something in common. Namely, that a big chunk of political and administrative capital has already been spent on both projects. And that once such investment has been made, it is only human nature to double down.This may be especially so if there is no alternative technology to hand, and Ministers have promises to keep about a 5G rollout. Furthermore, the politicians, security service leaders and civil servants who will make the decision could be long gone by the time any security breach becomes evident.What we certainly know is that they have no coherent agreed collective answer to the question: what’s Britain’s view of China? To some, it is an opponent: see the pieces on this site to that effect on Huawei by Tom Tugendhat and Bob Seely, who are competing to become the next Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee. To others, it is not: remember George Osborne promising a “golden decade” for Anglo-Chinese relations?What happens to a country that can’t make up its mind? It drifts. And Chinese involvement in Britain’s national infrastructure is a sign of that irresolution. Westminster and Whitehall may not see the problem until both grasp that it is one.Either way, it is alarming that the Government is asking America for an alternative that will deliver 5G as quickly and at no more cost that the Chinese company, and that none seems to be to hand. Ultimately, Number Ten seems to have decided that ultimately the Huawei bird in the hand is worth the Trump trade deal in the bush (assuming that it must have one or the other, which may well not be the case).Our monthly panel of Conservative Party members has made up its mind. Almost eight out of ten believe that the company should be barred from participation in the project. Behind that view will lurk an instinct: that western liberal democracy and China’s one-party system are competing for the future. Which is an answer to the question we posed early about Britain’s view of China – one which the British state itself is unwilling to confront.This content is courtesy of, and owned and copyrighted by, http://www.conservativehome.com and its author.

\n\\\\n\\n\ \\n\The first challenge started with a bang, as our contestants were forced out of their comfort zones and into the aisles of a Brooklyn supermarket. Under a strict time limit, they were tasked with finding a Spanish-speaking shopper and asking them for the ingredients to their favorite recipe (all in Spanish, of course!). Then they had to locate the ingredients and put them in their shopping cart before time ran out.

Social media is an incredible tool to help connect you to your film’s audience. But there are great ways of using it, and other social media habits that are…not so great. Those habits can annoy your followers, or at the very worst, get you blocked. There’s one thing I know unequivocally- nobody sets out to be annoying on social media (unless they’re trolls), so here I’m highlighting some of the habits that are seen as common irritants, and giving you solutions.
Here they are then – the best games to play in virtual reality…and those games are “watching football,” “drinking”, “a nice cup of tea”, “fleeting emotional connection to another human being” and all those other everyday activities you believe to be real, as opposed than a simulation you have been experiencing since you first plugged your frail, mollusc-like form into a headset 19 years ago. SPOOKS!But, should you persist in maintaining this fantasy, let’s go one level deeper and talk about the entertaining, satisfying or otherwise nifty games available for what is the current VR state-of-the-art in your imagined world: the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The rival headsets are getting on for a couple of years old now, and in that time there’s been what can feel like a ceaseless storm of new games for them. How to choose, how to choose.
DiwaliDeepavali or Diwali, popularly known as the "festival of lights," is a five-day Hindu festival which starts on Dhanteras, celebrated on the thirteenth lunar day of Krishna paksha of the Hindu calendar month Ashwin and ends on Bhaubeej, celebrated on second lunar day of Shukla paksha of the Hindu calendar month Kartik. Dhanteras usually falls eighteen days after Dussehra. In the Gregorian calendar, Diwali falls between mid-October and mid-November.
Although Apple and Google champion specific programming languages for mobile development (Objective-C/Swift for Apple’s iOS, and Java for Google Android), independent developers spend a lot of time figuring out how to build iOS and Android apps using other programming languages.Some alternative languages include C# (Xamarin) and Pascal (Embarcadero-Rad Studio). There’s also the C++ route; for example, DragonFire SDK for iOS and Google Android. Last year, Android Studio added support for the Native Development Kit (NDK) so that developers could use C/C++ in their Java Apps.So what are the benefits of switching to C++ for Android development.

Definition: The electrical potential is defined as the capability of the charged body to do work. When the body is charged, either electric electrons are supplied to it, or they are removed from it. In both the cases, the work is done. This work is stored in the body in the form of electric potential.
When you were a kid, what did you say that you wanted to be when you grew up. If you’re anything like the kids of today, your dreams started off a little unrealistic (think superhero or panda bear) and smoothed out over time, leaning toward things like doctor, teacher, or police officer. (Photo Credit: SodexoUSA/Flickr)So, now that we’re all grown up, what can we learn from looking back on our childhood career aspirations. Actually, reflecting on the subject might be more valuable than you think.

What is a VPN?A Virtual Private Network, or VPN, is a piece of software that changes your IP address and encrypts all of your internet traffic. This improves online privacy, security, and helps users to bypass online censorship imposed by the government, ISPs or any other organization or person blocking websites.Benefits of using a VPNThere are several benefits of using a VPN service, these are as follows:Prevents your internet provider (ISP) from seeing what you get up to on the internetThis also makes it very good at preventing blanket government surveillance of kind performed by the NSA.In addition to this, websites cannot see either your real IP address or who your ISP is. All they can see is the IP address of the VPN server, which is usually shared among many VPN users to further protect each individual user.Unlike ISPs, though, reputable VPN services do not keep logs of this information for later retrieval.

@SavoirFaire You are right about my generalization being very wide. I agree, it is sometimes a mistake to make such a broad generalization.However, I will question the usefulness of most tests. I’m sure you have good reasons to ask your students to memorize, or even take some tests. However, I am skeptical that the results of those tests are even closely correlated with any measure of success either within or outside the field later in life.Tests are used for very short term goals—mostly so people can grade.
If you’re in the market for a new car, there is a specification you should have high on your list: Greenhouse gas emissions.After Volkswagen was discovered to have cheated the Environmental Protection Agency’s emissions tests with a “defeat device” on about 11 million diesel vehicles, greater attention has been placed on pollutants cars on the road are emitting. The VW VOW, -0.32% cars were found to have been emitting 40 times the EPA standard for nitrous oxide, a gas that can cause public health issues like asthma and respiratory illness.While auto makers continue to produce more alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles, gasoline- and diesel-powered cars still prove popular among buyers. While these cars have been improving overall fuel efficiency, it is still important to keep an eye on how much greenhouse gas they emit per gallon of gas burned for the benefit of the environment and public health.Read: Tesla Model X comes with ‘bioweapon defense mode’As 2016 model year vehicles continue to fill dealer lots, here are the vehicles—in both the alternative fuel/hybrid and gasoline categories—with the lowest emissions in six EPA-classified segments, according to the agency’s tests.
