North Korea’s Kim sends ‘get well soon’ wishes for South’s coronavirus battle

first_imgNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un has sent a letter expressing hope for South Korea to overcome a coronavirus outbreak, President Moon Jae-in’s office said on Thursday, as the South battles the biggest epidemic of the disease outside China.The two sides’ exchanges have ground nearly to a halt after the North closed borders and temporarily shut a joint liaison office in a border city to avert an outbreak, while the South added 438 infections on Thursday to swell its tally to 5,766.In the letter delivered on Wednesday, Kim voiced concern over Moon’s health, and expounded what he described as his “honest view and position” regarding the situation on the Korean peninsula, Moon’s office said, without elaborating. North Korea had resumed missile testing on Monday after a three-month pause, prompting Moon’s office to urge a halt.Kim Yo Jong, who is also a senior official of the North’s ruling party, said the exercise was not meant to threaten anyone, deriding Seoul for what she called “perfectly foolish” words and acts.North Korea has not confirmed any virus infections, but state media said people showing symptoms faced a month in quarantine, while further “high-intensity” measures included stricter checks in border areas, at airports and sea ports.Moon offered to help the North’s prevention efforts, but Pyongyang has not responded, officials said.Topics : “Chairman Kim wished to console our citizens who are fighting the coronavirus,” Yoon Do-han, Moon’s senior press secretary, told reporters.”He said he believes we will win, and hoped the health of southern compatriots will be protected.”Moon responded with a letter of thanks, Yoon added.The rare message came less than two days after Kim’s sister, Yo Jong, issued a statement attacking Moon’s office for criticizing a military drill by the North.last_img read more

This Kootenay Ice team is primed for some home cooking

first_imgIce dropped a pair of close games to Greater Vancouver Canadians before grabbing three of four points in a weekend set against Thompson Blazers.Kootenay won 6-3 before playing to a 2-2 draw against the Blazers.Six different players —Tommy McConnachie of Trail, Hunter Flois of Vanderhoof, Conner Seib of Trail, Kaleb Comishin of Nelson, Shawn Campbell of Castlegar and Caige Sterzer of Kimberley— scored in the opener for Kootenay.Last weekend Kootenay was in tough against Vancouver Northeast Chiefs, losing 7-3 and 4-0.McConnachie scored twice and Floris added a single to complete the Ice scoring.“I like the makeup of our team this year. This is a really good group of kids,” Jones said.“We were short handed last weekend due to some last minute issues.”Kootenay is one of 11 teams in the BCMMHL.The league was established in 2004 to provide elite level 15, 16 and 17 year olds an opportunity to play within their own age group at a high level and be developed for the next level of hockey.These teams have an opportunity each year to compete for the National Midget Championship. The Kootenay Ice get a taste of some home cooking as the BC Major Midget Hockey League squad hosts its home opening weekend beginning Saturday at the NDCC Arena.The Ice, 1-4-1 open the season, play host to Valley West Hawks Saturday at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.Sunday, puck drop on the second game of the series is at 10 a.m., also in Nelson.“We are very excited to have our first home games of the year this coming weekend,” said Ice head coach Brian Jones.Jones assumed the helm of the Good Ship Ice this season after spending the last few years as the assistant coach to Rob Wright.Kootenay began the season with three consecutive road trips to the Lower Mainland and Kamloops.last_img read more

Via SXSW: Hands on with Kinoma Play’s Mobile Platform

first_imgRelated Posts Kinoma, a mobile platform company acquired by chipset maker Marvell back in February, is here at SXSW showing off its technology to interested users, developers and handset makers. The company’s smartphone experience called Kinoma Play is more than just a new app you can download on your mobile phone – it’s the smartphone version of a new app platform that will soon work on Android devices, both phone and tablet, in addition to some Windows Mobile and Nokia devices. It’s also available to handset makers and other hardware manufacturers to implement in their products.For app developers, the potential is the ability to develop apps that work on multiple phones through this platform. And for end users, Kinoma Play offers what is in many ways an improvement to the default Android experience.One of the nice things about using Android is that you can customize the phone to your own personal preferences. You’re not stuck using the same user interface that ships with Android, or even the handset maker’s own interface, like HTC’s Sense UI. Homescreen replacement apps, launchers and other customizations allow even the most novice smartphone users to make the phone their own.Along those lines, Kinoma Play, which will arrive in beta for Android in mid-2011, will appeal to those who like trying new front-end experiences for their device.Kinoma said it will give us our readers interested in the Android beta exclusive invites, so stay tuned for that in the coming weeks.Kinoma Play is Not an App, It’s a PlatformBut this Kinoma Play “app,” isn’t really just an app. It’s not just a launcher or homescreen replacement, either. Included in the Kinoma Play download is a complete suite of applications including a music player, video player, photo viewer and more. It even has its own built-in app store which contains apps of its own.There are some interesting benefits to Kinoma’s platform. For example, everything, including the homescreen itself, works in landscape mode. When streaming content, a quick tap of the “Now Playing” icon from the homescreen makes it easy to get back to your play/pause controls.  You can see a live thumbnail of a video playing when you return to the dashboard to multi-task. The photo gallery downloads thumbnails faster and renders images in a higher resolution (and much quicker) than when you’re using the default Android photo gallery app. And with just a press of the finger, you can zoom deep into a photo to see more detail than you could before. And those are just a few of the new experiences Kinoma has to offer.A Dashboard Where Apps Work TogetherHowever, one of our favorite features is the Kinoma dashboard, which functions like a better notifications interface for Android devices. It does not replace Android’s notifications, though – that’s still accessible when Kinoma is running. This new dashboard offers a stream of information from your apps which you can scroll through both up and down, and within each app’s section, side to side. (See the video below for what this looks like).Kinoma’s apps are integrated to work with each other, too, which allows for interesting interactions – for example, the Twitter app can use Bing’s translation feature to translate tweets into other languages while the photos app can upload content to other third-party services. Not Just for AndroidWhat makes Kinoma more interesting than, say, a general homescreen replacement app, for instance, is the combination of Marvell’s experience in chipsets combined with Kinoma’s software. Marvell can now offer a complete solution – from silicon to applications – which is an alternative that may pique hardware manufactuers’ interests.According to Peter Hoddie, VP of the Kinoma Platform, Kinoma’s platform can power other types of devices beyond smartphones, including  tablets, printers, and even smart grid devices.Kinoma doesn’t see itself in competition with Android because it runs on top of the Android OS. Even if a handset maker chooses to make Kinoma the primary experience for their phone, it’s not displacing the OS. It’s augmenting it with new capabilities.We got to see Kinoma Play in action here at SXSW and we’re looking forward to trying it on our own Android devices in the near future. sarah perez Tags:#Android#apps#mobile#news The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …last_img read more

I do not react on the ground: Sachin Tendulkar

first_imgSachin Tendulkar is not known for showing his temper or angry reactions on the cricket field, but at home he is a different person.Many a time, his mother and wife are at the receiving end of his occasional outbursts, the batting maestro himself revealed at a function in Mumbai on Sunday evening.Speaking after releasing a collection of poems penned by his brother Nitin and a CD containing Marathi poems written by his father late Ramesh Tendulkar, the champion batsman said sometimes he does get angry on the field.”But you have to control your temper on the ground as you are representing India. Sometimes I take out frustration in the dressing room. Many times there are situations when decisions go against you and the match is lost. It has happened many times, but I don’t need to take the name of umpires,” the 37-year-old veteran of 177 Tests said.Asked whether he fears his mother or wife’s temper, the master blaster said actually they fear his anger.”I don’t react on the ground. But I give vent to my feeling at home.”Tendulkar, who at times became emotional, recalled his formative years in Shardasram School at Dadar and thanked his aunt and uncle with whom he stayed for a few years.”I would stay with my aunt and uncle at Shivaji Park when I was in VIII standard as otherwise I had to change two buses in the morning to reach the school from my residence at Bandra. Going to school and practicing cricket was tiring.”I used to get exhausted sometimes and sleep without taking food. I will never forget what they did for me. They fed me while I felt sleepy and also massaged my feet. I take this opportunity to thank them,” he said in an emotionally-choked voice.Responding to reports about his proposed sortie in Sukhoi as mooted by Indian Air Force, Tendulkar said it would be a great honour to fly in the fighter jet.”I have a passion for speed. In 1996, I sat in a fighter plane in South Africa. I will definitely fly in Sukhoi. It would be an honour,” he said.Asked whether he felt like writing poem while watching stylish batsmen V V S Laxman and Brian Lara in action, Tendulkar said, “I think their batting is poetry in motion itself. You just sit back and enjoy. But the most important thing I want to say is that I am son of a poet and also brother of a poet.”advertisement- With PTI inputslast_img read more
