How Dry I.D.

first_imgGreg Schirf of Wasatch Brewery is riding the wave of publicity over the intelligent design controversy in Utah.  He came out with a new “intelligently designed” beer: Evolution Amber Ale.  The press release expresses his alarm over the alleged erosion of separation of church and state, but how serious (or sober) he was may be a matter of dispute:To critics who accuse him of just being up to the same old publicity stunts, the often times contentious brewmeister responds, “Perhaps, but we are really trying to live up to our mission statement, ‘Craft the finest ales and lagers possible.  Achieve a commercial profitability while maintaining the highest level of social responsibility.  And have as much fun as we can legally get away with.’”Previous stunts included marketing a beer as the Gold Medal winning “unofficial” Amber Ale of the 2002 Winter Olympics.If this were intelligently designed product, why didn’t they show the fully-evolved primate with a beer belly?  This guy clearly didn’t get his physique drinking Evolution Amber Ale, and if he were fully evolved, he would be sitting in the pose of Rodin’s Thinker, not pumping glass.    Thinking of that, it would be fun to see the Discovery Institute donate truckloads of this stuff to the NCSE in a goodwill gesture.  While they’re getting stoned, the real thinkers, fully clothed and in their right minds, could be attending school board meetings, campaigning, writing books and forming IDEA clubs – whatever they can do to enhance the Darwin Party’s morning hangover experience.    Come morning, ID supporters could even offer them free therapy.  They could tell them that the quickest way out of a hangover is more Evolution Amber Ale.  It not only smothers the depression, they can argue, but enhances mutagenesis, providing more raw material for evolution.  This is the way to kill a strife with kindness.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

SXSW: PathCrosser, an App for Comparing Facebook & Foursquare Checkins with Friends

first_imgsarah perez What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … PathCrosser is available here in the iTunes App Store or here in the Android Market.Note: Video recorded with a Flip Cam, which was provided to me for use during SXSW. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Only a few weeks ago, when local discovery app WHERE launched a recommendation engine for sharing places with friends, I said I wished someone would build an app that used Facebook or Foursquare checkins instead. As it turns out, someone did just that. A new application called PathCrosser, launching right now in the iTunes App Store and Android Market is a mobile app that, like WHERE, uses Bump technology to compare your own personal local recommendations with your friends. With the Bump integration, you simply launch the app and tap phones with another person to make a connection. But unlike WHERE, it doesn’t expect to use data housed only within its own service – it pulls data from the services you already use: Facebook and Foursquare.If you’re looking for a new app to try while waiting in line for some of those SXSW parties tonight, give PathCrosser a go and see what you think.Conversation Starter, Matchmaker and GuideThe PathCrosser application keeps it simple – it’s not a Yelp competitor where users write long reviews of the businesses they’ve visited, it just pulls in the checkins you already have on hand – those from Facebook Places and Foursquare. Going forward, the app will integrate additional checkin sources, too, PathCrosser’s creators Clark Harris and Matthew Simpson told me when I sat down with them this afternoon to see the new app in action. Tags:#Location#mobile#Product Reviews#Recommendation Engines#web center_img Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement What’s more, PathCrosser plans to work with third-party APIs (application programming interfaces) to pull in other information that would be relevant, like your tips on Foursquare, for example, which could serve to augment the raw checkin data with your personal notes.The fun part about using this app is that it can be a great conversation starter – bump phones with a friend and, all of sudden, not only do you see each other’s travels by way of your checkin history, the app’s matchmaking engine tells you whether or not you and your friend have similar tastes and interests.Plus, for those who don’t use location-based checkin services, PathCrosser provides (or rather, it will provide) a Web-based interface where you can pick out the places you’ve visited or mark them as places you would like to visit. However, that portion of the PathCrosser service has not launched just yet because this startup built “mobile first,” as so many today choose to do.For a first look at PathCrosser in action, check out the video below (sorry for the quality, I need a better camera): The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Related Posts last_img read more

Indian men win, women lose tamely

first_imgSomdev Devvarman and Karan Rastogi steered India to a 3-0 whitewash against a lowly Qatar in the Asian Games men’s tennis competition, but got crashed out of the women’s team event after being drubbed 0-3 by Indonesia in the first round, in Guangzhou on today.Rastogi gave India a blistering start with a 6-1 6-1 demolition of Al Mutawa Jabor Mohammed in 46 minutes, before Somdev showed equally ruthless approach in brushing aside Zayed Mousa Shanon in 38 minutes in the centre court of the Aoti Tennis centre.Somdev later combined forces with Sanam Singh and outclassed Zayid Mubarak Shannan and Al Haretth Abdulrahman Ali 6-0 6-1 to complete the rout.Rastogi, who served two second-set aces and hit 15 service winners in all, broke his Qatar rival Al Mutawa in the second game of the first set but was broken back immediately.However, he picked up his pace soon after to go 3-1 up with his second service break and then did not drop a single game to win the opening set 6-1 in 22 minutes.The Indian player grabbed a 3-0 lead in the second set before he dropped his serve, but then surged to take the next three games for the set and match.Thereafter, 25-year-old Indian No 1 singles player Somdev, ranked 106 in the world, fired an ace each in the two sets and hit 16 service winners.After clinching the opening set in only 16 minutes, Somdev allowed his rival to hold his serve once before closing out the second in 22 minutes.advertisement”I played very well. It is a good start and it is also a good experience for me. I think I can do a good job in the next matches,” Somdev said after his easy victory.With inputs from PTIlast_img read more

Bill Clinton Visits Clinton Foundation Investments In Haiti

first_imgOn a trip to Haiti on Monday and Tuesday, President Clinton visited several sites where Clinton Foundation investments and partnerships have made a difference and begun yielding results.The Clinton Foundation has been actively engaged in Haiti since 2009, focusing on economic diversification, private sector investment and job creation in order to create long-term, sustainable economic development.In 2013 the Haiti team provided approximately $1 million in grants and investments to support Haitian entrepreneurs, small businesses, and farming cooperatives, helped to facilitate more than $30 million in foreign direct investment into Haiti, and continued to provide capacity building and access to markets for Haitian businesses and the Haitian Center for Investment Facilitation.DigicelOn Monday, President Clinton visited the Union Des Apotres – Prodev School, which was built by Digicel as part of their CGI commitment to build 150 schools throughout Haiti. The school has also had significant support from NRG Energy, Urban Zen and Happy Hearts Fund. It is currently the only solar powered school in Cite Soleil.The Clinton Foundation made a grant to the school last year for Earth Day to support a tree planting activity and Earth Day celebration, which has evolved into a school garden program that will help add fresh, nutritional content to school feeding programs. In addition, the Foundation linked the school with NRG Energy, which has helped build a new canteen and a solar canopy for the school that is expected to produce enough energy to meet 100 percent of the school’s power needs.MarriottDigicel also announced this weekend that they will soon be topping off their $45 million Marriott hotel in Port au Prince. Digicel and Marriott’s partnership, facilitated by the Foundation, has brought new investment and new training opportunities to Haiti.Marriott, working with the Minister of Tourism, will soon announce the youth who have been selected for their Hospitality Leadership Development Program. This group of 10 young Haitians has interviewed (with the Ministry and with Marriott) for internships at the JW Marriott in the Dominican Republic and will begin working at this location when it opens in a few months. The youth will return to Haiti with newly learned skills and on-the-job experience to pursue a new opportunity — to be a member of the team at the Haiti Marriott as it prepares to open in February 2015.Thiotte/Coffee AcademyLater on Monday, President Clinton visited the Haiti Coffee Academy (HCA) in Thiotte, one of Haiti’s primary coffee growing regions. The Clinton Foundation has contributed over $150,000 to the creation of the Academy, and the Foundation has been working to promote Haitian coffee to US and international buyers to revitalize the industry. Coffee is the main source of income for more than 100,000 farmers in Haiti.Yesterday, the Clinton Foundation announced a $28,000 grant to Fonkoze, the leading microfinance organization in Haiti, to provide literacy training programs to up to 600 small-holder farmers and others in Thiotte.SRSOn Tuesday, President Clinton visited the recycling collection and bailing center of Sustainable Recycling Solutions Haiti (SRS). The Clinton Foundation worked to help relaunch SRS last year with a joint $250,000 investment with Todd Wagner.In just the past three months SRS, working with their network of collectors, have taken over 10 million bottles off the streets. In addition, the Foundation has worked with Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park who co-founded SRS, to bring more visibility to this project. Eco Wear has partnered with SRS to buy plastic bottles to create a variety of consumer products, including merchandise for Linkin Park.In addition, Giant Dragon, which has recycling operations in Hong Kong and the Dominican Republic, has partnered with SRS and announced that it has committed to purchasing a minimum of 4 million pounds of SRS plastic over the next year.IRIIPresident Clinton also visited Industrial Revolution II (IRII), a new apparel manufacturer in SONAPI Industrial Park that invests 50 percent of profits into their workers, their families and the local community. IRII currently employs over 100 people, primarily women, and with increased orders and business they have incredible potential to expand.Garments constitute 90% of Haiti’s exports, earning $800 million a year, and the sector currently employs 31,000 people. The Foundation has been working with IRII’s founding partners – Joey Adler, Rob Broggi, Richard Coles, and Matt Damon – for close to three years, helping them work through issues in Haiti and connecting them with potential apparel buyers.last_img read more

Google boosts Assistant search and Maps to help you order food

first_img Tags Share your voice Post a comment Integrating food delivery is Google’s latest bid to expand its popular services.  Joan Cros/NurPhoto via Getty Images Hungry? Google wants to help. In a series of updates Thursday, the search giant is adding features to Google Assistant, Maps and its classic search to help you get your next meal. Partnering with delivery services including DoorDash, Postmates, Delivery.com, Slice and ChowNow, Google is enabling users in the US to order directly from search, Maps or Assistant as opposed to having to go to the respective apps for the restaurants of choice. An “order online” button will appear in search or Maps when the restaurant you’re looking for uses one of those services. Google says other services like Zuppler will be “coming soon.”You don’t need to have an account with any of the services to place an order and can instead simply use your Google account. Menus are all displayed in the apps, with Google also showing the minimum each service requires and the respective delivery fees. The ordering process is largely similar to the standalone apps, with options available to enter promo codes and change credit cards if needed at checkout. Ordering food from Google search Google The entire ordering experience is done through any of the three Google services. Food can be delivered or picked up. Google Pay, the company’s rival to Samsung Pay and Apple Pay, will also be able to handle payment.Placing a delivery order with Google Assistant Google Android and iOS users with the Google Assistant app can place orders or reorders using their voice by saying “Hey Google, order food from [restaurant]” or “Hey Google, reorder food from [restaurant].”Integrating food delivery is Google’s latest bid to expand its popular services, building on the company adding the ability last year to call an Uber or Lyft using Assistant. Google Maps allows you to see how much a ride would cost, but to order an Uber or Lyft you need to head to the respective app. Mobile Apps 0 Google Assistant Google Maps Googlelast_img read more
