Halifax programming darling DHX launches strategic review could be sold

first_imgHALIFAX – Less than five months after scooping up the Peanuts gang of children’s cartoon characters in a blockbuster US$345-million deal, the decision this week by DHX Media Ltd. (TSX:DHX.B) to consider putting itself on the auction block has some speculating the Halifax-based children’s entertainment company may have taken on too much debt.The surprise decision to launch a review of strategic alternatives came Monday. On Tuesday, the chairman of DHX’s strategic review committee, Donald Wright, distanced the Peanuts acquisition from the review.“Whenever you purchase something as large as Peanuts it takes a lot of management time and effort to integrate it,” said Wright, president and CEO of The Winnington Capital Group.“We’re pleased with where we are on the Peanuts integration. We took on some debt but we also have a plan and we’re committed to lowering the leverage ratio over the next couple of years substantially.”Wright said it’s not unusual for a company like DHX to look at strategic alternatives from time to time, especially in light of the company’s recent drop in revenue and stock value.DHX posted disappointing financial results last week for fiscal 2017. In the fourth quarter, the company recorded a year-over-year decrease in revenue of more than 15 per cent. The company’s stock price took a hit following the lacklustre results, which included transactional charges related to the Peanuts deal.“I think it’s fair to say the board looks at the value of our businesses and assets and thinks they’re worth a lot more than the stock price indicates,” Wright said.David McFadgen, an analyst with Cormark Securities, said the company took on too much debt in acquiring its most recent gang of characters.“Their financial leverage is very high,” he said, noting that the fourth-quarter results were “quite a bit below expectations.”As the world’s largest independent owner of children’s content, DHX has positioned itself as a global player with many potential suitors. The company’s impressive library of brands includes Teletubbies, Inspector Gadget and Degrassi.As for possible buyers, McFadgen said a Canadian suitor is more likely to buy the entire company because a foreign buyer like Netflix would not be able to take advantage of certain tax credits and government incentives.However, Adam Shine of National Bank Financial says a large U.S. media company could acquire DHX’s library while avoiding its broadcasting assets, given foreign ownership restrictions on Canadian broadcasters.“We don’t rule out Canadian buyers of DHX, but these are not obvious and leverage is high,” Shine said in an analyst’s note.An analyst’s note issued by Drew McReynolds with RBC Dominion Securities said the launch of the review was a surprise.“The company owns a variety of valuable content assets that could be of interest to what appears to be a proliferating pool of potential buyers,” he said. “However, there remains considerable uncertainty with respect to scope, probability, timing and valuation of any potential transaction or transactions.”Michael Donovan, executive chairman of DHX, said during an earnings call last week that over his 37 years in the business, it’s “never been this positive.”“It’s getting more and more positive in terms of demand than it was six months ago, and that was breaking new ground,” he said. “We are very … well positioned as the leading independent owner of content in this space.”The company has said it is poised to take advantage of growing demand from industry giants like Netflix, Disney and others as they look for family-friendly premium content for their video-on-demand services.Donovan said Netflix’s recent promise to fund $500 million in Canadian production was like “a starting gun” going off for “a whole new arms race.”As for the company’s poor financial results, he admitted management “took our eye off the ball,” saying the acquisition of the Peanuts and Strawberry Shortcake brands “took really all of management’s time for six months.”last_img read more

IMF says it is reviewing data provided by Venezuela

first_imgWASHINGTON — The International Monetary Fund said Thursday that it is reviewing delayed economic data provided by Venezuela.IMF spokesman Gerry Rice told reporters that the executive board will meet in coming weeks to determine whether the South American country has met its obligation to share periodic information.“At this stage, we are reviewing data that we have received from Venezuelan authorities,” Rice said.He would not say when the data was received.The IMF issued a declaration of censure against Venezuela in May for its failure to implement remedial economic measures and provide required information.At the time, the IMF gave Caracas six months to respond with updated figures.Venezuela’s central bank hasn’t published official economic data since 2004, although member states of the international coalition are expected to do so every year.Venezuela’s currency has lost almost all its value as the country’s deep economic crisis has led to one of the worst cases of hyperinflation ever seen.Associated Press, The Associated Presslast_img read more

International tourism continues its steady improvement UN agency finds

International tourism continues to rise around the world, with only the Middle East and North Africa lagging, and even those regions expected to improve later this year, according to the latest United Nations figures.The World Tourism Barometer, released yesterday by the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) at its headquarters in Madrid, shows that international tourist arrivals rose by 4.5 per cent in the first four months of this year compared to the same period of 2010.About 268 million tourists travelled between January and April, up from 256 million last year, which was affected by the closure of much of European airspace because of the ash cloud resulting from the eruption of an Icelandic volcano.Regions around the world recorded strong year-on-year growth, led by South America (up 17 per cent), South Asia (up 14 per cent) and South-East Asia (up 10 per cent).But the political and social unrest in the Middle East and North Africa led to falls of seven per cent and 11 per cent respectively in those regions.UNWTO’s Secretary-General Taleb Rifai said those regions, and other destinations facing difficulties, such as Japan in the wake of the deadly earthquake and tsunami in March, should see demand recover towards the end of the year.“It is time to support those destinations and help their tourism sectors to rebound, contributing to overall economic and social stability and progress,” Mr. Rifai said.He warned that high rates of unemployment and the introduction of austerity measures in some countries could have a dampening effect on international tourism.Mr. Rifai said that tourist operators and industry experts were nevertheless upbeat about the short-term outlook for international tourism, particularly in the Northern Hemisphere, where the peak summer season has started. 1 July 2011International tourism continues to rise around the world, with only the Middle East and North Africa lagging, and even those regions expected to improve later this year, according to the latest United Nations figures. read more

US producer prices slipped 02 per cent in May in sign of

WASHINGTON – The prices U.S. companies receive for their goods and services fell in May, offering evidence that inflation is mild.The producer price index, which measures the cost of goods and services before they reach the consumer, dropped 0.2 per cent last month, the Labor Department said Friday. The decline was driven lower by cheaper food and gas, and follows two months of strong gains that had suggested inflation might be perking up after being dormant for two years.In the past 12 months, producer prices have risen 2 per cent, matching the Federal Reserve’s inflation target. That’s down from an annual gain of 2.1 per cent in April.“The underlying details of the report suggest that producer price inflation is still fairly contained despite the big increases in the last few months,” Omair Sharif, an economist at RBS Securities, said in a research note.Excluding the volatile food, energy and profit margin categories, core producer prices were unchanged in May. The result comes after a 0.3 per cent gain in each of the two preceding months. Core prices have risen 2 per cent in the past year.Wholesale food prices fell 0.2 per cent after four months of steep increases. And wholesale gas prices dropped 0.9 per cent, suggesting consumers may see some relief at the gas pump in coming months.Another reason producer prices fell: retailer and wholesaler profit margins declined 0.5 per cent after two months of strong gains.The drop in profit margins comes after robust increases in April and March. Retailer and wholesaler profit margins had fallen in the winter as companies rolled out discounts to lure shoppers through the doors during harsh winter storms.Wholesale prices rose 0.6 per cent in April and 0.5 per cent in May. Some of those increases have been passed onto consumers. The consumer price index, the most widely followed inflation measure, rose 2 per cent in April compared with 12 months earlier. That was the largest yearly increase since July.The Federal Reserve prefers inflation at about 2 per cent as a guard against deflation, which occurs when prices actually fall. Deflation can also drag down wages and typically leads to recessions.Inflation, as measured by the consumer price index, has been mostly below 2 per cent for the past two years.Consumers may like low prices, but weak inflation also occurs when the economy is sluggish. Wage growth has been meagre for the past four years, and unemployment remains at historically high levels. That limits consumer spending and makes it harder for businesses to raise prices.Still, low inflation has enabled the Fed to pursue extraordinary stimulus programs to try and boost the economy. It has begun to unwind some of that stimulus, cutting its monthly bond purchases to $45 billion from $85 billion last year.The bond purchases, intended to lower long-term interest rates, are expected to be trimmed by another $10 billion when Fed officials meet again next week.

I haven’t spoken to her yet so I don’t know if she saw it all happen. But we know she’s safe.”Tamir, whose parents look after Aysa at their home just a stone’s throw from the bridge, on Porter Street, said he had been out watching the football when he started receiving frantic calls from his parents who didn’t know where Aysa was. He believes her phone battery may have died and as the whole area was cordoned off she couldn’t get home or let her grandparents know where she was.”They tried to leave to look for her but they were told to stay inside by police.

Hillsborough revisited in The Real Thing short story

first_imgTHIS MONTH, THE families affected by the deaths of 96 people at Hillsborough stadium in Sheffield in 1989 heard that new inquests will be held close to home.It was a welcome piece of news for the families who have spent 24 years campaigning for the truth to be revealed about the circumstances of their loved ones’ deaths.Irish writer Niamh Cooper O’Sullivan contacted TheJournal.ie after the 24th anniversary of the disaster, with permission to publish her awards-shortlisted short story, a fictional account of the terror of the day. She said: “I want to share it with you for publication, for those who are still trying to make sense of the horrific events of 15 April 1989.“Just hold on! Hold on!” I can see him just in front of me, trying to reach back, trying to grab my hand. “Hold on!” I hear him say again. It’s warm, very warm, the sun is shining on my face, but there is more heat, too much heat. I feel pinned into my jacket and try to shake it off. But it only seems to wrap itself closer around me. It’s Mark’s jacket, his pride and joy, pounds scraped together so he could afford another crest, worn open upon his chest, such as not to obscure his lucky jersey. “Dad! Dad!” “Dad!” I try again, my voice fading thinly once again. Stop pulling, I tell myself, and try the other side. The shorter end of the scarf comes off more easily and relieved, I shake it off. It falls onto my chest, and lingers for a moment, then continues on its journey to the floor. I can’t bend down. “I’ll get it later.” I tell myself.Just then an excited roar ripples through the crowd and flushed faces raise themselves eagerly as their bodies try to follow, hundreds of sweaty, hot fans, a sea of red, now writhing, surging as one. “Beardsley. It was Beardsley!” I hear a man shout at his friend, who, like me, can’t see. Has the game even started? But before I can understand how the other man can see what so many of us can not, almost immediately, there comes the disappointed “awww” as we try to take a few steps back from the people in front of us. I don’t know the cause of our collective groan but then the answer comes from a few lads further back. “The bar, he hit the bar!” So close. But it’s early days yet, early days, that’s what I’m sure Dad just muttered into the crowd.Our bubbles have long since merged into one gelatinous mass, rolling forward like a wave crashing towards the shore, on the verge of sharing a moment we thought was the beginning of the victory everyone was expecting, then retreating back in search of a more spacious vacuum. Except there is no space. No room to move. I cannot direct my feet to go where I want them to go. The sun is stinging my eyes. Or is it the sweat. I can’t wipe my brow, but then it suddenly gets roughly taken care of by the bald man’s shoulder as we get bumped forwards once more. Dad’s hand slips out of mine and falls away. Dad’s voice sounds distant, though he is only a few feet away. Odd and high-pitched. Not like Dad.The bodies close in. “Adam! Stay close!” I look up, gasping for air. Hands are reaching down. I try to grab them but I’m not tall enough. The April sun strikes my eyes, an overwhelming wave of burning light, too bright to bear, its glowing core summoning me. I avert my gaze and look instead at faces, hands, hoardings, almost within reach. Another surge and suddenly I am higher than the crowd, there are those hands again, outstretched, inviting me upwards. I cling to an outstretched arm, then another, and several heaves later I am lifted above the sea of red.“Dad!” I see him just below me, he is trying to reach my feet. “Hold on, Adam. Just hold on.” “Pull, lads, pull. We’ve got to get him out of there.” More hands reach for me. “Hold on mate. That’s it lads, we’ve got him.” Hands grab me and pull. My feet walk themselves over the hoarding, I am not alone, never alone. I meet firm ground and am out of the sun’s angry gaze. “But Dad! That’s a whole year! I’ll stay close to you, I promise!”“The answer is no. It’s a long enough trip and there will be people everywhere, there’ll be a fair crowd, sure there’s hardly a more important game than this semi-final. We have them, we almost have them!”“Come on, I’ll wash your car every week for a month. And anyway, what will you do with the ticket? You can’t waste it, not today. And Nicky and the lads are all going too, and Rob’s Dad said there were still tickets left so no one would buy it anyway. So can I Dad, please, can I?”“Maybe he’ll be ok.” Dad had reassured himself hopefully, with a nod of the head in Mark’s direction.But just then Mark’s ash-green face had appeared from the depths of his blankets. He’d shaken his head and that had sealed my fate. Within minutes I had been ready and back in his room, and when he had taken a sip of the ice water Mum had handed him, Mark had pointed at his wardrobe with a shaky hand. “Take it. You can wear it. It’s the real thing, mate. The real thing. Guard it with your life!”Mum and I are sitting on the long wooden bench, the long corridor full of people. As she brings the hot cup to her lips with shaking hands I see a man in a white coat making his way towards us. He stops to talk to a nurse, and my attention is caught instead by a young man with a blood-soaked bandage around his head. He seems to be walking around aimlessly, why is there no-one with him? Just then I turn my head see the nurse pointing him our way. Moments later the bearded doctor has reached our bench. “Hold on! Just hold on! I’m coming.” “No, you’re too young. You’ve never been to a game, Mark was fourteen before he went.”center_img “It’s ok son, I’m here. I’m here.”We try to reach around a stone-washed trouser leg but it’s no use. A few feet away I see the high wire mesh separating us from the pen to our left. My feet are not my feet, they are being commanded by another force and my body sways with the men on either side of me, in front of me, behind me. I don’t want to lose him. I glance at the fence. Knuckles dig into the back of my ribcage, an elbow swipes my neck, meeting my head with an involuntary blow. I try to shake them back but there is no give in the mass around me. Then suddenly a surge, as a sweaty-faced man yells expletives, then falls silent. The once steadfast buttress behind me, rows of man upon man ten or so deep, has suddenly gone limp. I manage a few sideways steps. Then a few more. The fence looks high. It’s less crowded over there. “Dad!” Where are you Dad? I see his head bobbing in front of me, further to my right now. Screaming faces down below. They are shouting, crying, grown men are yelling, pleading. Further down a man is slumped forward, onto another man who is still. A woman is wailing, her mouth wide open but I don’t hear a sound. A group of lads with their faces painted cling together, their expressions pained. Screaming faces. And many, oh so many still faces. Silent faces. “Where is my jacket?” Mark’s jacket! He’s going to kill me. “Dad!”My father lost me in the crush when the alarm went off. I tried to hold onto his hot, greasy, safe hand. But I was losing it. I grabbed harder but it slipped away. “Dad!”Every time the same. The faces. The heat. The sea of red. The smell of sweaty, swaying bodies. The sunlight on my head. The noise. People shouting. Yelling. Cursing. Beseeching. The uncontrollable lean as I am the crowd, unsure whether to writhe this way or that, a single headless mass. My body is moving in and out with the tide around me, yet we are rudderless, we can only move as one. The arms pinned to my side. The smell, oh the putrid, sticky smell. The jacket. And Dad.Sometimes I manage to hold on for longer. But I always let go, I always let go.I lie back in my bed, remembering that morning. “This is the real thing, mate. The real thing. Guard it with your life!” The persistent hand finally finds mine. I seize it. I didn’t expect it to be this cold, this wet. I have to readjust my grip so I don’t lose it again.I feel drops of sweat forming on my brow. Very soon they are going to start rolling down my forehead, my nose, my cheek. The heat is unbearable. The man to my left jolts forward and his hat hits me on the shoulder. I try and shake it off before I realise that he won’t be able to retrieve it if it hits the floor. I hold still as he reaches for it. Seconds later it’s back on his head, his arm strangely suspended somewhere the height of my shoulder. I try and lean into it to move it on but it’s wedged between us. The April sun is beating down on us, I can feel it warming my head.Maybe I’ll start with the scarf. With difficulty I untangle my left arm from the hip next to me and wriggle it upwards so I can undo the bright red banner Dad bought me on the way in. “You’ve got to have one of these! It’s your first one, it’s a special day, you’ll need something to remember it by!” I poke the bald man in front of me in the ear and mumble “Sorry mate!” He can’t hear me but I feel better for saying it.The man next to me sways into my ribs and I pull down too hard; the scarf wraps itself tighter around my neck, too tightly, too tightly, I gasp. “Dad!” He’s right there in front of me, his arm bent uncannily backwards, like that time Mark was trying to teach me the police grip. I stare at his oddly distorted limb, then suddenly feel how strongly he’s grasping my hand. He can’t hear me above the roars. “Mrs Jones? We have found your husband.”Niamh Cooper O’Sullivan is a bilingual writer, based in Co Cork. She writes, edits, ghost-writes, tweets and can sometimes be found behind a drum kit.

Sorry Purists 12 Cooler NonGen 1 Pokemon

first_img Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee have been announced, and that has Pokemon fans reacting. On one hand, they aren’t core Pokemon JRPG games, so we have to wait until 2019 for the dream of playing a mainline Pokemon game on a home console. On the other hand, they’re remakes of Pokemon Yellow, so they’re taking everything back to the nostalgia-filled land of Kanto and the first 151 Pokemon. Purists are excited about that, because they think the original Gen 1 Pokemon are the best. They’re wrong.I give tons of credit to Pokemon Red/Green/Blue/Yellow (it was Green in Japan, not Blue, which is why the Game Boy Advance Gen 1 remakes were Fire Red and Leaf Green). They started a movement, and include dozens of classic designs. They aren’t the be-all and end-all of Pokemon, though, and they aren’t all amazing. No one’s going to go to bat for Pinsir or Tangela. Despite what your nostalgia might say, not every Gen 1 Pokemon is fantastic, and not every Gen 2-7 Pokemon is stupid.G/S, R/S, D/P, B/W, X/Y, and S/M all have some great Pokemon, and it’s time to look past our love for the Kanto region and appreciate some of them. Here are 10 of the best Pokemon designs the come after RGBY. No legendaries or starters, because that’s too obvious.CastformThis is one of those weird experimental Pokemon you find at a science center. It looks like a blob or a ghost, but it’s actually personified weather. When it uses weather effect moves, it changes into sunny, rainy, or snowy forms, switching from Normal type to Fire, Water, or Ice type. That’s pretty unique and interesting.GarchompSpeaking of strong combinations, Garchomp is a Rock/Dragon that looks like an evil kaiju. Those two types mean if you don’t have any Ice (or, post-Gen 6, Fairy) type moves, you’re screwed. Its design is one of several badass monster dragons that pop up in nearly every Pokemon generation.Gurdurr“What’s Hitmonlee’s power?” “It kicks you.” “What’s Hitmonchan’s power?” “It punches you.” “What’s Gurdurr’s power?” “It hits you with a freaking steel girder.” Yeah, I know which Fighting type Pokemon I want on my side. The one that cheats with construction equipment.HoundoomThe Pokemon series has several cute or fearsome dog-like Pokemon, but Houndoom is special. That’s because Houndoom is the dog of SATAN. Dark/Fire type, with huge horns and a spade tail. It even has metalhead cuffs on its feet, which makes me want to bring it to a Cannibal Corpse show.MarillPikachu’s the mascot, but Marill’s the cute Pokemon for the real fans. I’m going to straight-up say it, Marill is a cuter design than Pikachun. Almost orb-shaped, round mouse ears, and a zig-zagging tail with a little blue pom on the end? Also, water-type is way more useful than electric type.MismagiusThe Gen 1 lovers have Gengar and Gastly and Haunter. Mismagius is better than all of them. It’s a floating purple ghost like the classic ghost-type Pokemon, but it’s also a wizard. It’s the “Magical” Pokemon, and its body has a big pointy wizard hat, long flowing wizard sleeves, and a weird mystic Dracula trophy.SharpedoIt’s a freaking shark. Pointy. Looks angry. Sharp teeth. Name is a portmanteau with “torpedo.” Might be the deadliest fish Pokemon out there.ShedinjaThis is a weird, creative, and downright spooky Pokemon. You get it from evolving Nincada, but only under specific conditions. It isn’t the evolved form of Nincada (that’s Ninjask), but is instead its shed shell. This is a ghost-filled husk of a Pokemon, complete with weird halo. If that isn’t spooky enough, the Pokedex says that trying to look into the crack of its supposedly empty shell will steal your spirit.SlakingWhat happens when you combine Slowbro with Snorlax and give him way more swagger? You get Slaking, an evolved sloth-like Pokemon who radiates chill. It’s just kicking back, head propped up, relaxing. It’s the “Lazy” Pokemon, and canonically even more of a slacker than Snorlax. And is cooler when doing it.ZangooseIf this isn’t a David Bowie reference, I’ll eat a Game Boy Advance.MetagrossMetagross is one of my favorite Pokemon, mostly because it was so busted the first time I played with it. It’s Psychic/Metal type, which is an absurdly strong combination. It also looks like a four-legged alien tank, which evolves from a two-legged alien tank, which evolves from a forearm with an eyeball on it.XatuThere are a lot of bird Pokemon.

Minko Gechev Developers should learn all major front end frameworks to go

first_imgThis year’s Skill Up survey produced some interesting results when it came to the best front end frameworks. Angular remains the most established tool with 40% of web developers reporting that they used it regularly. React is actually a little further behind, with 25% using it regularly. Similarly, Vue.js is growing but used by 20% of respondents. However, opinion was a little different when we asked what front end frameworks should win the battle of the 3 big front end tools. Respondents were split on Angular and React, with both JavaScript tools winning 34% of the vote. Vue wasn’t far behind, at just over 30%. With the web development world apparently split over what framework is going to define the future of the field, how are we to pick them apart? Or do we even really need to worry? Read the report in full. Sign up to our weekly newsletter and download the PDF for free. The fact that we have three great front end tools jostling for developer attention is surely a good thing, right? To help us make sense of these trends, we caught up with Angular expert Minko Gechev to find out what he makes of web development in 2018, and what front end developers should be learning. Minko Gechev is the author of Switching Angular. You can find the latest edition here on the Packt Store. Which front end framework should you learn: Angular, React, or Vue? Respondents to the Skill Up survey were evenly split between Angular, React, and Vue in the ‘battle of the frameworks’. Which do you think developers should learn, and why? In all of them, there are unique and interesting ideas which are worth exploring. I truly believe that learning all the major frameworks can help developers go to the next level! This doesn’t necessary mean to be proficient in all of them. Having a high-level understanding of how the frameworks work and how to use them is completely enough and will allow you to adapt according to the projects’ requirements. This is similar to learning programming languages from different paradigms – it helps you discover how problems are being solved in different ways. For the past a couple of years, the redux pattern became the de facto standard for state management in the modern front-end development. The good thing about redux is that it’s view agnostic so you can use it with any framework – Vue, React, Angular, etc. Angular has its own redux alternative called ngrx which empowers a declarative approach with RxJS but in general, it follows the same underlying pattern. My recommendation would be to understand how to manage the state of our applications because that’s probably the most complex problem that we’re solving in our day to day development process. Once we have a solid understanding of this, we can easily switch between different frameworks depending on the problems we’re solving, what the rest of the team is using, and the project’s requirements. A very interesting characteristic of learning Angular is that if we get comfortable with the framework we’d be also familiar with TypeScript, RxJS, and techniques such as dependency injection. This may look like an initial overhead but it’s a great long-term investment which pays off really well in large projects. How important is TypeScript to front end development? How important is TypeScript to modern web development? Why? Over the past a couple of years I see a strong increase in the excitement around the language, not only in the Angular world but also in React and Vue. I’m personally using TypeScript for a few projects – a platform that we built with React and an educational application written in Angular. I see a lot of value in using TypeScript. Recently I haven’t started any project with JavaScript – for everything new I’m using TypeScript and I’m trying to migrate, as many of my existing projects as possible.There are a few reasons for this: TypeScript provides great development experience! Especially, combined with VSCode, you can instantly notice when you’ve misspelled a property, method, you’re trying to access a property of a nullable value, etc. It gives you a sense of security that your program is correct to given extent. Of course, TypeScript cannot save us from logical mistakes but if we use its type system wisely, we can get great benefits. You might be curious what benefits? Well, TypeScript can help us reduce the number of bugs in our programs. In the study “To Type or Not to Type: Quantifying Detectable Bugs in JavaScript” the authors shown that the average JavaScript program can benefit with 15% bug reduction if it uses the type system of TypeScript. The study was using TypeScript version 2.0; with the latest features of the language the number of detectable bugs is growing dramatically. Since recently webpack is leveraging TypeScript as well because it helps discover already existing issues in the codebase. Web developers and JavaScript fatigue Do you think we’re past web developers experiencing ‘JavaScript fatigue’? JavaScript is very dynamic and it moves very quickly. There are a lot of potential issues which could be caused by a variety of reasons. With semantic versioning and powerful type systems (such as the type system of TypeScript), we’re walking in the right direction but we definitely have a long way to go until the ecosystem matures. Web development over the next 12 months: WebAssembly and machine learning What do you think will be the most important thing for developers to learn in the next 12 months? There are a lot of exciting things happening nowadays! Web browsers are getting more and more powerful, exposing hundreds of APIs and opportunities. WebAssembly is moving very quickly and I believe that together with Rust it has a lot of potential in future. On the other hand, Google recently announced TensorFlow.js. This is a library which allows us to use machine learning (ML) in the browser. In the next years, ML is going to take a larger portion of our development process (directly or indirectly) for: Implementing features in our applications Improving development process I’m specifically interested in the second point – improving our development process by using ML. Together with Addy Osmani, Kyle Mathews, and Katie Hempenius, we’ve been working on a toolkit called Guess.js. It aims to provide predictive bundling and pre-fetching based on ML techniques in order to let us develop faster Angular/React/Vue/etc. applications. I’m really excited about what’s coming up in near future! So are we! Thanks for taking the time to speak to us, Minko!last_img read more

1 You dont need words to communicate thats wha

first_img1. You don’t need words to communicate, that’s what hands are forWhat do you mean ‘language barrier’? Whatever you need to say can usually be communicated with a shoulder shrug, a raised eyebrow, or a thumbs up. Sharing a sideways glance and a giggle with someone at the bus stop feels just as good as having a full-on discussion about life, the universe and everything.

You always carry your sunglasses, an umbrella and a box plastersEvery good Boy Scout or Girl Guide knows, ‘be prepared’ is a solid life principle. You never leave the house without being fully equipped for every eventuality, a skill that will save you from more than one sticky situation once you decide to wander the world alone.8. You’ve got friends all over the worldSee point number 2; you’re not put off by having an international group of acquaintances and appreciate friendships made whilst on the road. It’s also handy to have a few couches to crash on. 9. You’re big on sharing…But you’re not an oversharer; name, age, hometown, perfectly acceptable information to divulge with your new hostel buddies. Whip out a few party tricks if you feel comfortable enough. But you like to keep some things private and you realise that your Facebook status is not a ‘dear diary’. And if you do end up making a tit of yourself in front of your new friends, take comfort in knowing that at least it’s not as bad as this…10. You’re ok with ordering food and not knowing 100% what’s in itThat’s part of the fun; it could be a bit of cauliflower, it could be a chicken’s brain, who knows? Who are you going to ask if you’re dining alone? And really, who cares what it is? Stick it in your gob and see if it tastes good. If yes, repeat. If you want half an idea of what you’re eating, check out our guide to the world’s greatest street food before you head off solo. 17. You never let fear get the better of youThere are days when you feel scared or frustrated, but those feelings will never override your passion for adventure and going out in to the world to experience something new. Instead, you prefer to turn those brief flashes of panic in to a positive energy that keeps you going.18. You’ll take a good story over selfiesYou prefer sharing travel tales to seeing the world through a camera lens. Selfie-sticks are not something you’ve ever been interested in and you’re much more eager to get out and experience places for yourself, rather than get awkwardly angled portraits taken next to clichéd tourist spots. 2. You’re up for making new friendsYou may start out on your own, but it doesn’t take you long to get chatting to someone new, even if it’s just someone to split the cab fare with. You’re not shy about coming forward when you see a friendly face you fancy getting to know.3. You can sleep pretty much anywhereOn the train, on a bus, in the car, even at your desk (it’s called productive power-napping) you can catch forty winks wherever you are. This will stand you in good stead for those 15 hour bus rides, or sharing a dorm room with an impressive snorer.4. You’re not afraid of getting lostNot because you have an awesome sense of direction (although if you do, this is another sign that you’re ready to fly the nest solo) but because you don’t believe in wrong turns. There’s new adventure around every corner, and sometimes the only way to find it is by putting down the map and heading off piste.5. You’re happy to spend time with yourself – a good book and a glass of wine are optionalIt’s more than not minding being alone for a few hours. You actively look forward to some ‘you time’, lost in a good book, treating yourself to a nice dinner or just chilling out with a glass of vino with a TV box set.center_img 6. Your phone is full of useful travel appsGoogle Maps, a translator, a currency converter, and of course, Skyscanner – your phone is fully stocked with a library of travel apps so that you can navigate yourself through the wilderness of north London.

And now that we’ve got flights, car hire and hotels all in the one place, why not find out how you could save money and time with Skyscanner’s 3-in-1 app. 19. You can carry five plus shopping bags in each handYou live on the third floor? No big deal! Being strong enough to carry your nan’s shopping up several flights of stairs means you’ll have no problem lugging your backpack on and off buses.20. You keep a diaryWhether you’re happy, sad, excited or just bored, you turn to your diary to express this. You don’t need a face-to-face convo, this way you can get it all out uninterrupted. Another alternative is blogging, but you can’t beat old fashioned pen and paper pals.21. Your gut instinct has never steered you in the wrong directionYou’re a rational person, weighing up the pros and cons of most decisions, but you’re biggest indicator is your gut instinct. It’s your strongest ally in making a right move; trusting your finely tuned natural reactions will be an invaluable guide on your solo expedition. 11. You brush your teeth twice a day…And you floss regularly. This is a sure sign that you know how to look after your personal health and hygiene, an important factor when you’re left to your own devices, especially if you want to make new friends who see your beaming face before they smell you.12. You see a trip to the supermarket as an adventureWorking your way along the aisles, browsing shelves of brightly coloured groceries, stopping to look at items you never knew you wanted (man, those pickled pigs feet look delicious) – what a way to spend an afternoon!
