The E Division (Linden-Kwakwani) Police Headquarters has recorded a number of successful activities and exercises in 2018 thus far.Some of these successes were highlighted during the annual presentation of the Division’s Christmas Policing Plan which was recently presented by Divisional Commander Linden Lord. It was reported that for the period January to November, several drug eradication exercises were conducted at Wisroc and West Watooka (Linden), Coomacka Mines, Five, Ten and 18 Miles (Ituni Road) and would have resulted in over 16 acres of approximately 7300 cannabis plants being destroyed.For the same period, there were reportedly five murders committed in the Division, four of which were solved by ranks attached to the Division’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID), who according to Lord, “demonstrated proactive policing and thorough investigations”.Additionally, there were 14 robberies recorded over this period, with eight cases being solved and five criminals prosecuted in connection with these crimes.As it relates to outreaches, Police in the Division have also conducted several outreach programmes and lectures at schools and communities across the Division which Lord noted were done, “as a means of fostering a better relationship with the community”.Included in these exercises, were an interactive session conducted with students of the Muritaro Primary School and another conducted by traffic ranks with youths interested in acquiring a provisional license.Traffic ranks also conducted lectures with students of the Harmony and Linden Foundation Secondary schools in Linden.The boundaries of the Division extend to the left Bank of the Essequibo River (West), Ebini River (East), Dora (North) and the left bank of the Kurupuri River (South).
Brand South Africa reiterates the call to fight against the abuse of women and children and urges all to unite to end this crippling social ill in our society.In a statement released earlier; President Ramaphosa said; “This is a very dark period for us as a country. The assaults, rapes and murders of South African women are a stain on our national conscience.”The President further added; “We have just commemorated Women’s Month. Sixty three years after the women of 1956 marched for the right to live in freedom, women in this country live in fear – not of the apartheid police but of their brothers, sons, fathers and uncles. We should all hang our heads in shame”In 2019, the Presidency signed the Declaration on Gender-Based Violence and Femicide with various civil society formations and has directed that urgent attention be given to its implementation, particularly on immediate measures around support to victims and access to shelters and places of safety.Brand South Africa emphasises that it is an everyday reality that citizens need to face and mobilize community members, to take a stand, stop and report abuse of any kind. Everyone has a responsibility to act against the endemic behaviour that goes against who we are as a nation.Let us all play our part.Call the Stop Gender-Based Violence helpline (0800 150 150).
frederic lardinois How Many Apps Do They Use?About 40% of all iPhone users use about 4 to 6 apps at least once a week. Only about 5% use more than 20 apps per week. Given how many apps most users download per month, these results validate some other reports we have seen which argue that most iPhone apps are disposable and are discarded after a few days of usage. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#advertising#mobile#news#NYT#web What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Related Posts The Power of BrandsBeing an ad company, AdMob also asked the survey respondents if they would download apps from well-known brands. Over 70% answered that they had already downloaded apps from brands and over 60% said that they would be interested in doing so.As AdMob is more interested in selling ads than revenue from app sales, it makes sense that the company didn’t differentiate between paid and free apps in this survey, though it would have been interesting to see more data about how much users pay for their apps on average and what percentage of the apps they downloaded was free. MethodologyAs always, it is important to note the methodology used for this survey. On August 6, AdMob recruited participants through ads in applications that use AdMob’s advertising technology. Overall, AdMob received 190 responses from these ads, which the company feels is a significant sample size and provides a representative sample of the larger iPhone app market.Admob IPhone Apps Survey 2009View more presentations from guestc0de5a. The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology AdMob just released some data about how iPhone users discover new apps in the App Store and how they use them once they have downloaded them. According to AdMob, most users download apps from the App Store directly from their phones. Only 7% go through iTunes to download apps. To find new apps, 62% of all respondents searched for a specific app and 60% looked through the lists of top selling apps in the store. AdMob also found that the majority of users (62%) install between 1 and 6 new apps per month and 22% of all iPhone users download more than 11 apps per month.How do iPhone Users Discover Apps?The data about how iPhone users discover apps is quite interesting. It doesn’t come as a surprise that most users are looking for a specific type of app, but it is also clear that the Top 25 lists in the store play a major role in most users’ purchase decisions. 46% of all iPhone users rely on recommendations from friends, while about 20% find new apps through ads in other applications and about 19% base their download decisions on news articles and blog posts they have read.Given the size of the store at this point, it only makes sense that users rely on popularity as a measure of quality. Sadly, the App Store doesn’t allow users to organize apps by ratings. Judging from this data, any app that becomes a bestseller and reaches the Top 25 can probably look forward to a long life within this list.
On Saturday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel used her weekly video podcast to attack Google and the Google Book Settlement. According to Merkel, the Google Book Settlement disregards international copyright laws. Merkel, who mostly focuses on the upcoming Frankfurt Book Fair in her rather anemic video, also stressed that Germany will do its best to protect German authors against what the government considers to be blatant copyright infringement. Both Germany and France filed complaints against the Google Book settlement last month.“The Internet Should Not Be Exempt From Copyright Laws”According to Merkel, the German government wants to protect its authors. Google, according to Merkel, is “just scanning books without any regard to copyright law,” and “the Internet should not be exempt from copyright laws,” she also adds.In this context, it is important to note that Germany has always been extremely protective of books as a cultural product. Book retailers, for example, have to sell all new books at a set price and can only discount older or damaged books under a limited set of circumstances. It’s currently not clear if these price-fixing rules also apply to eBooks.“eBooks Won’t Replace Traditional Books” Merkel also stressed that she doesn’t believe that eBooks will ever replace traditional books – though she does mention that ‘new’ technologies like audio books have changed the book market over the last few years.Google Books and the Google Book Settlement have obviously been mired in controversy from the beginning. Just last week, Google’s Sergey Brin defended the project in an op-ed piece in the New York Times. The Google Book Settlement is currently on hold, and Google has until November to present a revised version of its plan.

Probably timing is a little bit off, but overall, it was okay,” Cabagnot said after a 95-80 loss to Rain or Shine.San Miguel still managed to get the top seeding despite missing the services of Cabagnot, who was averaging 19 points, 6.5 rebounds and 4.8 assists before the injury.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutThe 35-year-old Cabagnot said the Beermen being able to sustain their form is a testament to the team’s “character.”“We had some guys who stepped up and that’s really how our team works. I was gone for six games, but we went 4-2,” he said. “That’s a good record to have in a six-game stretch for any team. That just shows our character, and it’s a paradigm of sorts on how we are as a team.” View comments Still groping for form, Cabagnot finished with 13 points, four rebounds and only one assist in over 30 minutes of play.
