Hotmail Aliases: Multiple Addresses, One Inbox

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Tags:#Microsoft#web center_img Wouldn’t it be great if you could have one email address for all your friends, one email address you use to sign up for potentially spammy services and sites you don’t really want to get in touch with you, another for business and then one more for all your gamer friends? That’s exactly the idea behind the new aliases feature announced this afternoon for Microsoft Hotmail’s 350 million users.The new feature allows users to add up to five new aliases a year, up to a maximum of 15.  But why would you want to add aliases? Dharmesh Mehta, director of Windows Live at Microsoft, explains:The email address a person uses is a big part of their online identity. The average person maintains three different email addresses in order to organize different types of email, maintain different personas, or keep junk mail away from a primary email address. So there are many good reasons that people want multiple email addresses, but maintaining multiple accounts, with different user names and passwords that require you to check multiple inboxes, is inefficient.Mehta offers the example of searching for a car. You may have to sign up for several sites, but once you’ve found the car, you now have all this email still coming. With aliases, you can simply turn off the alias and – voilà ! – the emails stop. As you can see in the screenshot, when you set up the alias, you are also given the chance to direct all that alias’s email to a specific directory. This makes it simple to keep email separated so you can easily ignore pay attention to what’s important. mike melanson A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

BJP may dump Nitish ahead of Lok Sabha poll: Tejashwi

first_imgTej Pratap Yadav and Tejashwi Yadav, sons of Rashtriya Janata Dal party chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, have asked party workers to be prepared for simultaneous elections to the Bihar Assembly and the Lok Sabha.Appearing together at the party’s 22nd foundation day function on Thursday, the brothers slammed NDA leaders for their propaganda about a feud in their family. “There is the possibility that BJP will dump chacha Nitish Kumar ahead of the 2019 elections. The Assembly election may then take place simultaneously with the Lok Sabha poll,” said Tejashwi Yadav, Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly. “The doors have been closed for Nitish Kumar in the Grand Alliance, though, he is trying to create the atmosphere for a comeback… Some people have come up with the narrative that the BJP cannot be defeated unless JD(U) returns to the Grand Alliance. I’d like to remind them that the NDA lost a number of by-polls against the RJD recently. RJD will consider supporting the JD(U) if Nitish Kumar retires from politics,” he said at the function held at the party headquarters here.‘No compromise with BJP’NDA leaders thought RJD was finished when Lalu Prasad went to jail, Mr. Tejashwi Yadav said. “But let me tell them, Lalu-ism will always thrive.” It was because of Nitish Kumar and the BJP that Mr. Prasad was in jail today and unwell. “He refused to bow before the BJP for the sake of power… he is still fighting and will continue to fight against communal forces.”Amid loud proclamation by party supporters that he would be the next Chief Minister, Mr. Tejashwi Yadav said he certainly would when the people of the State wanted him to. “But I’ll not compromise with the BJP for the sake of power, like my chacha Nitish Kumar did.”He appealed to party leaders and supporters not to give credence to reports on television channels and in newspapers. They wanted to create differences among brothers and family and make a saas-bahu serial out of it. “You must have all seen how my elder brother greeted me with a mukut (crown)… we are both sons of Lalu Prasad and united.”Show of unityThe brothers arrived at the party headquarters together and sat next to each other. “Tejashwi has to take the party forward… my blessings are always with Tejashwi,” said Mr. Tej Pratap who, it was earlier reported, was unhappy at being sidelined in the family. He also denied reports that his wife Aishwarya Rai would be joining politics. However, significantly, Ms. Rai was seen with other party leaders for the first time in a poster for the foundation day function outside the 10 Circular Road residence of former Chief Minister Rabri Devi.Ms. Rabri Devi did not attend the function as she was said to be indisposed. Senior RJD leaders like Raghuvansh Prasad Singh, Shivanand Tiwari, Jai Prakash Yadav and Ram Chandra Purvey were present at the function.last_img read more

Thank you for the kind welcome to Calgary, Mayor @nenshi! #StampedeReady #yyc— Ambassador Kelly Craft (@USAmbCanada) April 12, 2018She also discussed NAFTA and assured everyone it would be resolved and work for the next 25 years.“In general, the United States, Canada and Mexico have been pretty happy with NAFTA as it was originally agreed,” Craft said. “But that rising tide hasn’t lifted all boats evenly.”Craft also said foreign investment in the U.S. is about 20 per cent of GDP.“It is not a coincidence that almost all of Canada’s top domestic companies and largest employers have significant US operations.”She cited several success stories, including business app Slack, which started in Vancouver. It’s now based in San Francisco and generates more than $60-million in annual revenue.

German brewers to print calorie content on beer bottles

first_imgBERLIN — Two German brewers associations are recommending that their members start printing the number of calories contained in their beers and shandies on the label.The German Brewers Association and the Association of Private Breweries in Germany said Friday it hopes other industries, such as vintners and distillers, will follow suit.The voluntary measure follows pressure from the European Commission to improve food industry transparency and help health-conscious consumers make informed decisions.The average calorie content of a pilsner-style beer is about 40 calories per 100 millilitres, or about 200 kcal in a standard half-litre bottle.The Associated Presslast_img

Get to know the two candidates vying to be the next mayor

first_imgProsko, meanwhile, is seeking to be elected to public office for the first time in this year’s election. Most recently serving as Taylor’s community services director for four and a half years, Prosko previously owned Prosko Group Productions Inc. – a public relations and event management company based in Vancouver and Toronto. She also worked with former premiers Gordon Campbell and Christy Clark, along with Liberal MP Hedy Fry.The two mayoral candidates, along with other council candidates, took part in an all-candidates forum hosted by the District last Thursday.Both candidates were provided with a list of eight questions so that residents can get to know them and their policies. Their answers are listed below. Why do you want to become mayor of Taylor?Fraser: I feel I still have more to give back to the community that has supported me and my family for 26 years.Prosko: I would like to become Mayor of Taylor because we need good governance, leadership and a policy focused council. Taylor is a gem in the heart of the peace region and it needs a clear vision for the next four years and for future prosperity. TAYLOR, B.C. – While this year’s municipal election in Fort St. John has been a relatively tame affair, things are a bit more exciting in the District of Taylor.Unlike in Fort St. John where mayor Lori Ackerman has been acclaimed for the second election in a row, this year’s election will be the second in four years in which residents will get to choose which candidate they prefer to be the District’s next mayor.Incumbent mayor Rob Fraser is seeking re-election after winning the race in 2014 to succeed Fred Jarvis, who retired after serving as Taylor’s mayor for 28 years. Fraser won that election with 53 percent of the vote, beating Brad Filmer and Wayne Wilmot. Prior to 2014, he was a councillor in Taylor for 12 years and also worked for the Worker’s Compensation Board for ten years after a career in the oil and gas industry. What are three things Taylor needs to spend more money on?Fraser: Safety of our staff, the safety of our community, and preventative maintenance.Prosko: The District of Taylor needs to be more effective with public engagement and consultation to ask the residents and stakeholders what they would like to see for their community. After speaking with many residents while doorknocking on my campaign, three things for Taylor that keep coming up are – 1) upkeep and safety of our infrastructure, 2) police presence and public safety and 3) before and after school care for our family-friendly community. What are three things Taylor needs to spend less money on?Fraser: Everyone would like to see the subsidies to all services come down.Prosko: The District of Taylor should aim to reduce subsidy on the medical clinic which is currently at $8000.00 per month and reduce subsidy on the Lone Wolf golf course. The current council implemented a meeting fee per diem, over and above their renumeration, and I don’t believe a meeting fee per diem is the right thing to do as it can get out of hand quickly. Where do you see Taylor in 4 years?Fraser: Taylor will continue to be a dynamic partner in the region. Its responsible growth will attract residents and business to locate here.Prosko: I see Taylor in four years as a safe, family friendly community with a developed commercial core including a grocery store, restaurants, small businesses and entrepreneurs. It will be back on track with the vision in the official community plan that includes walkability, safety and a thriving community. What’s your favourite movie?Fraser: I have two; “Old Yeller” as one of the first movies I saw and the life lessons it teaches; “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World” for its theme of leadership under trying conditions.Prosko: One of my favourite movies is on repeat at my house as my daughter and I both love it: “How to Train Your Dragon 2”. I also love “The Zookeepers Wife” – a poignant and important film. What are five albums you’d take with you if you knew you would be stranded on a desert island for five years.?Fraser:Marty Robbins “Gunfighter Ballads”Eagles “Greatest Hits 1971- 1975”Trooper “Hits from 10 Albums”Garth Brooks “In Pieces”Bryan Adams “Reckless”Prosko:Neil Diamond “Greatest Hits”Lenny Kravitz “5” (as I worked on that album to help market it while I was with Virgin Record Label, incredible experience)Johnny Cash “Ring of Fire”Michael Jackson “Thriller”Anything by Barbra Streisand or the Bee Gees!center_img What area of governance is the District currently excelling at?Fraser: Governance in Taylor is working well. Our council has been working hard at developing a culture of accountability and responsiveness. This culture is growing. Some people thrive in this type of environment, others do not.Prosko: The main reason why I am running for Mayor is that there has not been an area of governance that I have seen as progressive for our town within the past four years. The council has been very involved in staff operations, there have been multiple firings and positions left vacant which has been detrimental to operations. Council’s job is policy. What area of governance needs improving at the District?Fraser: Taylor is 60 years old. There is a need for a review of our services and delivery of those services. Our council has been advocating for a core services review, a service level review and an asset management plan.Prosko: My main focus would be a complete policy review. There are policies over two decades old. My opponent is working off the John Ronald report from 1989. I believe we should have policies and a vision for 2018 and going forward for our community, residents and stakeholders.last_img read more

Hiccups along the road to development

first_imgGoverning a country is a mammoth task per se, however, with the resources readily at disposal, the task becomes easier. Accusing the former UPA dispensation of a heap of failures, the then Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and BJP had left no stone unturned to showcase UPA’s inconsistencies, citing them detrimental to the development of the country. Marred with scams, UPA-II saw an obvious conclusion to its tumultuous regime with a right-wing nationalist voted to power. A plethora of welfare schemes and opposition failures raked up the saffron party’s popularity enabled BJP to register a thumping majority in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. Since then, India has unarguably progressed. The government perceives the past five years under Modi as an exponential rise in terms of development due to their proactive efforts as summed up by various leaders of the lotus party – drawing sharp contrast from UPAs combined ten years. While development, undoubtedly, happened as it should have given the government’s responsibility, terming it exponential would be an exaggeration. And, with development came the hiccups that blemished the current dispensation’s “acche din” narrative. Also Read – A compounding difficultyDemonetisation remains the biggest of decisions in policymaking, singlehandedly bringing the entire nation to a standstill. The country listened as PM Modi in his speech on November 8, 2016, around 8 PM announced how from midnight onwards, all 500 and 1000 rupee notes would no longer be valid currency. The expectation was concise and focussed that with demonetisation, those holding onto untaxed black money will be caught. At the time, 500 and 1000 rupee notes comprised 86 per cent of all cash in circulation and hence their withdrawal meant undertaking a massive operation. Modi’s speech had three sharp aims of ending corruption – a predominant feature of BJPs manifesto – along with slashing down fake notes and financing to terrorists. Markets struggled as demonetisation hit the floors with long queues for changing the void currency visible across the country. Demonetisation did not impact the GDP much but it landed a heavy blow to the informal sector. Demonetisation, based on its initial aim, was somewhat influential in the thumping victory that BJP registered in UP elections as well. However, as Modi’s tenure progressed, the aim of demonetisation shifted drastically with the motive being to make India a cashless economy which will pave way for digital payments. In this regard, the government treats demonetisation as a success but still limits references to same in its campaign. If demonetisation was such a success as it is claimed to be, curiosity pertains as to why it is not at the tip of the tongue of BJP leaders and the government, who stopped mentioning the move. GST followed demonetisation as the new tax regime further affected the economy owing to a hasty implementation. The haste was such that streamlining products and processes took the entire of the remaining tenure. Also Read – An askew democracyWhile India was overcoming the economic shock, mob violence saw a drastic rise. Five years saw a rise in religious fanaticism and fake news on social media as catalysts to a spate of mob attacks across India. Cow protection was at the heart of this as cow vigilantes rose to assault those accused of either killing cows or transporting them to slaughter. These vigilantes enjoyed impunity under the garb of political support which did not do much to prevent lynching from becoming prominent in society. Dadri (September 2015), Jharkhand (March 2016), Una (July 2016), Rajasthan Highway (June 2017), Hapur (June 2018), et al, are instances where civilians were attacked by the enraged mob and justice remained a far cry. Since 2015, according to IndiaSpend, 117 cow protection-related incidents of violence happened and as per Quint, 88 people have been killed in lynchings across India. Lynching did not soar high just because of cow protection but other apprehensions such as child lifting were also singled out as reasons behind the unruly mob justice. Social media facilitated lynching via its massive outreach as fake news ushered mob gatherings and eventual killings. The government went largely silent on this as an incapable administration struggled to find a remedy. The infamous CBI infighting – an unfortunate spectacle for the entire nation – further corroborated popular beliefs that CBI functions as a political tool. Famously called the “caged parrot” by SC in May 2013, CBI was tagged as UPA’s puppet by Modi himself when he said “Congress will not fight the next Lok Sabha elections but will field CBI instead” back in 2013 as PM candidate. Yet, Modi could do little to remedy this tarnished reputation of CBI. Instead, in his tenure, CBI ascended to unprecedented turmoil with the top two cops of the agency accusing each other of graft charges. No Lokpal – additional watchdog on government and agencies – was there to check the regressive affairs of the most prestigious investigation agency despite the Lokpal Act being passed in 2013. NRC and Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) rocked the North East as their terms offered conflicting definitions of citizenship. BJP’s claim that CAB aims to give shelter to persecuted minorities came in conflict with dissents from JPC members who posed the question that why did CAB discriminate between migrants on the basis of country and religion when it rode on a humanitarian impulse to provide relief to people. Both NRC and CAB have kept the North East on the edge as the government’s actions promoted regional polarisation in Assam. Meanwhile, Kashmir witnessed increased militancy, mass protests, rising death toll and polarisation between Muslim-dominated Kashmir and Hindu-majority Jammu. In the five years, recruitment of youth to militant groups proliferated and so did the anti-militancy operations which ensured turmoil in the troubled valley, indefinitely. In 2017, gunfights concluded in the killing of 213 militants while 2018 saw 225 gunned down and civilian casualty as collateral damage was overlooked. Surgical Strikes along LoC and increased ceasefire violations (sharp rise since the UPA regime) featured as Kashmir and peace became the two ends of a continuum, if they were not already. In June 2018, the state government collapsed as BJP walked out of the BJP-PDP coalition and the state assembly was dissolved despite a historic partnership between NC and PDP with Congress to claim power. As far as Pakistan is concerned, Modi’s stance meandered across his term. From holding talks and formulating what could be better Indo-Pak ties, the situation deteriorated to heightened tensions along the border. Uri and Pulwama forced Modi to take up an offensive stance as India retaliated on both occasions. However, as always, the issue of the troublesome neighbour saw no gross improvement with Modi’s tenure being no different than any others’ in this regard. The controversial Rafale deal is stuck in the corridors of the apex court and arouses curiosity over the leaked documents which cite PMO’s indulgence in defence deals – yet another issue which blemishes Modi’s credibility. All in all, development went hand in hand with controversy, and as such, did not let Modi’s “acche din” narrative stand apart in utter limelight. Governance in the past five years has definitely been constructive but simultaneously regressive on some fronts too and it all depends on how one perceives these two sides of the five years before choosing a new government.last_img read more

Serena Williams Only Loses In Big Upsets Because Shes Always A Big

For the second straight year, Serena Williams’s bid to make history at the U.S. Open was derailed in a semifinal upset. Last year, Williams was seeking to complete the first calendar-year Grand Slam since Steffi Graf in 1988 and to tie Graf’s Open-era record of 22 career major titles when she was defeated by No. 43 Roberta Vinci. On Thursday night, Williams was two match wins from passing Graf in career major titles, but, hampered by an injury to her left knee, she lost to No. 11 Karolina Pliskova.Williams was ranked No. 1 heading into both matches. And according to win probabilities based on our tennis Elo ratings, both results were big surprises: She had a 97 percent chance of beating Vinci and an 87 percent chance against Pliskova.1In this article, our estimates of win probability heading into matches at this year’s U.S. Open use a blend of players’ overall Elo ratings and Elo ratings based only on hard-court matches, according to the methods described in our article about our tournament forecast. For earlier matches, we’re using probabilities based on overall Elo ratings for both players. That’s not unusual for Williams, who has left majors in two ways over the past five years, each one happening about as often as the other: Either as the champion (9 of 20) or as the loser of a big upset (11 of 20). She has had at least an 85 percent chance of winning all 11 of the matches she has lost at majors since 2012 (her first year playing the majors in her 30s). Those 11 losses are among the 14 most surprising of her career at majors: In other words, her 14 Slam losses for which she entered the matches with the highest Elo-based win probabilities.The series of surprise losses is the result of two factors:1) Williams is losing more matches she should win, perhaps a reflection of increased susceptibility in her 30s to injury or wear during a tournament. She has won 89 percent of Slam matches since 2012 in which she had an 85 percent chance or better, compared with a 96 percent win percentage in the same type of matches before 2012.2In both time periods, the average of her win probability in these matches was 95 percent.2) Against a field with fewer all time-greats than she faced earlier in her career, Williams is playing a lot more matches as a big favorite, giving her more opportunities to be upset: She has had at least an 85 percent chance of winning in 88 percent of her major matches since the start of 2012, compared with 64 percent earlier. read more

Ohio State mens soccer team looks to secure Big Ten title in

Maryland midfielder Mael Corboz (8) and OSU senior midfielder Kyle Culbertson (3) struggle over the ball during a game at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium on Oct. 31. OSU won 1-0. Credit: Amanda Etchison | Editor in ChiefThe Ohio State men’s soccer team will play for the Big Ten title against its biggest conference rival in the regular-season finale on Wednesday, when the Buckeyes are set to host Michigan at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.The game against Michigan (8-4-4, 3-2-2) will arguably be the biggest game of the season for OSU (10-5-2, 4-2-1) because it will play a major role in determining who takes away the regular-season Big Ten title.“Our coach has been telling us all season to just take it one game at a time,” junior forward Yaw Amankwa said. “We look forward to the next game and will prepare the same way. It’s just another game and we will do whatever we can to win.”OSU started off the season in dismal fashion, notching just two wins in seven games. But things changed halfway through the season for the Scarlet and Gray, as it rattled off a 10-game unbeaten streak to leap to the top of the conference standings. “We worked so hard to get here,” Amankwa said. “At the beginning of the season no one thought we could do it and it just feels good to prove people wrong.”The Buckeyes sit at No. 1 in the Big Ten standings with 13 points, followed by Rutgers and Northwestern with 12 points each. Michigan sits in fourth place but still with a chance to grab the top seed with 11 points. Losses by OSU, Rutgers and Northwestern would give the Wolverines the crown.Rutgers is set to face Maryland on Wednesday, while Northwestern is scheduled to take on Wisconsin. The Scarlet Knights would win the conference with a win and OSU loss, as they hold the head-to-head tiebreaker with the Wildcats.Rutgers was able to slash OSU’s win streak on Oct. 25, putting the Scarlet Knights at No. 1 in the conference. The Scarlet and Gray bounced back on Saturday, however, defeating Maryland and jumping right back up to the top spot in the standings.The Buckeyes plan to keep that momentum going against Michigan to claim the Big Ten title.“To be in the position Wednesday night to play for the championship is great,” OSU coach John Bluem said. “But you got to win the game, and so we’ll prepare for the game like we’ve prepared for games all year long, and we’ll try to do the same things.”The Buckeyes hope to defeat Michigan on Wednesday, not only to claim the Big Ten title but also to have a favorable matchup in the Big Ten tournament quarterfinals.“We hope to finish strong and win on Wednesday night, and we’re going to hope to get a good seed so we get to play a quarterfinal game here at home,” Bluem said. “But it’s one game at a time.”The top four seeds in the conference play home quarterfinal games. The Buckeyes have clinched a top-four spot as they hold the tiebreaker with current No. 5 seed Indiana, which can tie OSU’s 13 points with a win and OSU loss. The Buckeyes defeated the Hoosiers in Bloomington, Indiana, on Oct. 10, 1-0.A peek at MichiganMichigan will be entering Wednesday’s match coming off a 1-0 shutout victory against in-state rival Michigan State.Freshmen midfielder Francis Atuahene, who leads the Big Ten in shots per game, has paced Michigan this season with 10 goals and three assists, followed by redshirt senior midfielder Colin McAtee with five goals and two assists. Senior forward William Mellors-Blair has chipped in three goals and four helpers.In goal, sophomore goalkeeper Evan Louro has played a total of 1,533 minutes and leads the conference in save percentage with a mark of .821. His goals-against average of .70 is also tops in the Big Ten.Awards keep comingFor the third time during OSU’s surprise season, its players have swept the Big Ten weekly awards.After netting a game-winning goal against Maryland last week, Amankwa was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week for the first time in his career. The junior college transfer, who is in his first season with the Buckeyes, has a pair of goals and two assists on the year.Senior goalkeeper Chris Froschauer’s suffocating senior season continues. After picking up his conference-leading eighth clean sheet against the Terrapins last week, the transfer from Dayton earned his fourth Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week award.Froschauer — who saved five shots against Maryland to improve his save percentage to .808, second in the Big Ten — is the fourth player in conference history to win the award four times in one season.Overall, there have been seven times a Buckeye has won a weekly award this fall.What’s nextThe Buckeyes will host their first opponent in the Big Ten tournament on Sunday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The time and opponent will be determined after Wednesday’s slate of games. read more
