Park ranger Charlotte Henson leads a group of visitors on a walking tour of Skagway in summer of 2016. (Photo: Emily Files)In less than a week, the first cruise ship of the season will dock in Skagway, bringing thousands of visitors to the busy Northern Lynn Canal port.Listen nowBut if lawmakers in Washington haven’t agreed on a spending plan by then, a government shutdown would close one popular visitor attraction – Skagway’s national park.Congress has until midnight Friday to agree on a budget. If that doesn’t happen, funding will expire and the federal government will shut down.That means many federal departments and employees would have to close their doors and stop working, including Alaska’s national parks.Last year, the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park in Skagway welcomed nearly a million visitors. It’s the most visited park in Alaska.Superintendent Mike Tranel said they’re currently ramping up operations for the summer season.The flood of visitors coming into town will have to find something else to do if the government shuts down.The park service follows a contingency plan laid out by the Department of the Interior.“If the government shuts down the buildings that – any of the public buildings are closed and any of the offices and maintenance buildings, anything is closed and locked and not available to the public,” Tranel said.The Klondike Park is a major piece of Skagway’s downtown visitor industry, and operates a number of museums, along with guided tours that attract hundreds of people on busy cruise ship days.It also oversees the U.S. side of the popular Chilkoot Trail.Tranel said most local employees would be furloughed in the event of a shutdown.“We’re close to our full staffing for the summer season, which is around 60 employees – 30 permanent and term employees and then 30 additional seasonal or summer-only employees,” Tranel said. “All of those would be affected except for two,”The park service employs about 1,100 employees statewide at the peak of the summer season.This isn’t an unprecedented situation.The last time the government shutdown was in 2013. One big difference was that shutdown happened in October, after the tourism season had died down.“It wasn’t during the peak of the tourism season,” Tranel said. “We had a couple of staff members who were just checking on security of buildings and things like that. Everyone else gets furlough notices whether they’re a permanent employee, seasonal employee or term employee.”It’s hard to imagine a worse time of year for the park to face a potential closure.Skagway is on the cusp of an expected 1 million visitor season. The first cruise ship docks on May 2, bringing just over 2,000 visitors to town.Two other ships will arrive later in the week. The first four-ship day is the following week on May 9.Tranel hopes the park will be operating normally when the visitors arrive.“The Department of the Interior, which the National Park Service is part of, is hopeful that Congress will pass a continuing resolution and there won’t be a government shutdown,” Tranel said. “We’ve been instructed to continue business as usual and to not invest a lot of time and effort in contingency effort for a shutdown and proceed as normal.”Fears of a shutdown were alleviated somewhat on Tuesday, when President Donald Trump indicated he may be able to wait on federal funding for a border wall.Congress still needs to come to an agreement on the rest of the budget.This isn’t the first time in recent months that federal politics have led to uncertainty for Alaska National Parks.Parks worried a federal hiring freeze in February would stop essential seasonal employment. After a couple weeks in limbo they were able to hire summer staff.

With just 13 episodes standing between him and freedom, Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat waxes lyrical about his 13 years working on the sci-fi phenomenon.In a recent interview with World Screen, the Scottish writer and producer talked hard work, companions (fictional and physical), advice, and the future.BBC“I’d like to go and find a new thing to fail at”A lifelong fan of the show, Moffat’s first solo Who work, a short story called “Continuity Errors,” was published in 1996. Three years later, he scripted the parody Doctor Who and the Curse of the Fatal Death for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day charity telethon.In 2004, he was tapped to write for the revival of the classic program, penning award-winning scripts “The Empty Child,” “The Doctor Dances,” “The Girl in the Fireplace,” and “Blink.” Doctor Who changed hands after its fourth season, when Moffat took over from Russell T Davies as head writer and executive producer.“I’m astonished at how long I’ve been doing it,” he told World Screen, admitting that working on Who is the “longest I’ve ever done anything.”“I sort of miss my own job of making up television shows and doing the new things, which is the real job of a writer,” Moffat continued. “You’re never more a writer than when you write something new; you try something different. I miss all that. I miss being, as it were, a proper writer. I’d like to go and find a new thing to fail at.”BBC“There is no process of leaving”In January 2016, Moffat announced his retirement from the long-running BBC series; last month, he confirmed plans to also give up his writing gig, allowing incoming chief Chris Chibnall to “put his own stamp on the show.”But his tenure with the TARDIS is not over yet, and Moffat is “still absolutely in the storm of Doctor Who.”In the throes of writing his last season finale and last Christmas special (in which Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi will regenerate into a new iteration of the Time Lord), Moffat described the process as “still full on.”“There is no process of leaving,” he said. “One day you’re doing the job fully and completely, the next day you’re not. It will be as simple as that.”BBC“It does feel like a brand new beginning”The BBC on Monday released a 60-second trailer for series 10, which introduces new companion Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie)—a chance for the show, and audiences, to start fresh.“When a new person comes on board the TARDIS, a new person has to learn the rules of time travel and the TARDIS, has to worry about who the Doctor is and slowly decode what he’s up to and whether he’s a hero or a villain,” Moffat mused. “It does feel like a brand new beginning.”As promised, the first episode of the new season is “specifically designed” to act as a refresher for fans and an introduction for newbies, like showrunner-in-waiting Chris Chibnall.BBC“It is a monstrous workload”The Broadchurch creator is set to take over season 11 (slated for 2018). But he doesn’t need instruction on how to run Doctor Who, according to Moffat, who offered suggestions on “how to have a life while you’re running Doctor Who.“He’s a family man, like myself,” the current boss said. “You’ve got to make sure that you survive it. … It’s really about, you’ve got to see your kids now and then. You’ve got to go home now and then. You’ve got to keep living. It is a monstrous workload, Doctor Who, monstrous.”Moffat knows a thing or two about monstrous projects, having created and helmed the BBC’s other behemoth, Sherlock, since 2010. But unlike Chibnall, who promised himself some TLC between work, Moffat is already eyeing the next enterprise.“I’ve got some things I fancy doing,” he teased, hinting at productions that are “quite different” and less “showbizzy.”Stream all of Doctor Who now for free with your Amazon Prime membership.

Sword Art Online is a popular anime and light novel series with a premise about virtual reality gaming within an MMORPG. Though there have been several SAO games released, they were all standard offline JRPGs that simply emulated the MMO genre. With the advent of modern-day virtual reality, now is the best time to create an SAO experience that is much closer to what the source material touches on.IBM Japan has announced that it is working on a virtual reality project called Sword Art Online: The Beginning Sponsored by IBM, reports Siliconera. This project uses IBM’s Watson Cognitive Computing Tech and Softlayer Cloud Computing to create a virtual reality MMO world. According to SlashGear, the game will support the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. The game will be played using hand gestures instead of a traditional game controller.There will be an event held in Tokyo from March 18 to March 20 where participants will be able to try out the technology first hand. This won’t only involve strapping on a helmet and playing. Those at the event will get the chance to have themselves scanned in 3D and put into the actual game. An alpha for the game will also launch in March with 208 participants from the Tokyo metro area, according to Engadget.Sword Art Online creator Reki Kawahara tried the demo out for himself and was impressed by it. He said that he hopes being chased by giant monsters in virtual reality will make people think more about what is possible with virtual reality gaming and its future.While this isn’t quite the NerveGear technology of the anime, it’s about as close as you can get to an actual Sword Art Online experience (minus being trapped in a VR world where you can actually be killed).
Here’s the transcript via NPR:Garcia-Navarro: We’re talking about male players but there is of course wonderful female players. Let’s talk about Serena Williams. You say she is the best female player in the world in the book.McEnroe: Best female player ever — no question.Garcia-Navarro: Some wouldn’t qualify it, some would say she’s the best player in the world. Why qualify it?McEnroe: Oh! Uh, she’s not, you mean, the best player in the world, period?Garcia-Navarro: Yeah, the best tennis player in the world. You know, why say female player?McEnroe: Well because if she was in, if she played the men’s circuit she’d be like 700 in the world.Garcia-Navarro: You think so?McEnroe: Yeah. That doesn’t mean I don’t think Serena is an incredible player. I do, but the reality of what would happen would be I think something that perhaps it’d be a little higher, perhaps it’d be a little lower. And on a given day, Serena could beat some players. I believe because she’s so incredibly strong mentally that she could overcome some situations where players would choke ’cause she’s been in it so many times, so many situations at Wimbledon, The U.S. Open, etc. But if she had to just play the circuit — the men’s circuit — that would be an entirely different story.Garcia-Navarro: Many people over the years, including, we should mention Donald Trump, the President, wanted you to play her, and you seemed to have at least thought about it.McEnroe: Well I’ve thought about it. I didn’t really want to do it, personally. I don’t know, people always seemed — I would say why don’t they go ask Roger Federer? Or someone, you know they added the old fart that’s you know 25 years over the hill. And I think I can still play and I think I could still — I mean my kids don’t think I can beat her anymore. Maybe I should get her now because she’s pregnant, but the truth is that I think that sometimes —I don’t know why in tennis, I get it’s that one battle of the sexes when Bobby Riggs played Billie Jean.Garcia-Navarro: Billie Jean one of the most famous, iconic and most watched, I think tennis matches at the time.McEnroe: Yeah, it was no question. I think there was the most, the biggest attendance at the Houston Astrodome, and it was great that Billie Jean did that but…OK, but that doesn’t mean, talk about other sports. If you go look at the times, for example, of the world’s fastest females — and you know maybe it will change! You know my daughter, one the things she says is ‘You’re a feminist, Dad.’ OK. I started with two boys, I got four girls now and I’m all for it and I’m trying to just get with it and figure it out.Audio of the interview. McEnroe’s Serena Williams comments start at 6:30. Advertisement John McEnroe has never shied away from controversy during his Hall of Fame playing career. Johnny Mac was equally known for his confrontational style and emotional outbursts as his seven grand slam titles.In retirement, the 58-year-old McEnroe is still outspoken, and in a recent interview with NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro, when he was asked if Serena Williams is the best tennis player in the world of either gender, McEnroe took exception.If she played the men’s circuit she’d be like 700 in the world.”McEnroe also said he could still beat a pregnant Williams if the two faced off in a modern version of The Battle of the Sexes. Ok, John.
Ghacks user.js goes github by Martin Brinkmann on April 13, 2017 in Firefox – Last Update: April 13, 2017 – 18 commentsWhen Pants approached me in 2015 about publishing his Firefox user.js configuration file on Ghacks, I never imagined how far the project would come.Now, 20 months later, the project has made a huge step by moving to GitHub. Among the many improvements are openness, better manageability, change tracking, faster releases, support for user contributions, and a lot more.Pants was kind enough to keep the Ghacks name for the project, and I will publish information on new releases whenever they are made available here on Ghacks. This means that I will post a new article shortly after stable Firefox releases that highlight the changes of that particular release, and provide you with links to the latest versions of the user.js file on the Github project page.You can use this link as an entry point on Github to explore the project there.Without further Ado, here is Pants announcement:Hi ghacksAfter v11 (FF51), I decided to put the ghacks user.js on GitHub. This brings a lot of benefits that I don’t need to list here. It’s been a busy 6 weeks, and now that all the noise (number of posts and discussions and issues) have died down, I can tell you about it… here’s what we’ve done… so far:PS: I’m crap at writing, so I’m doing this bullet stylePPS: I just want to say thanks to the guys (and gals) who have been contributing at GitHub, but a MASSIVE thanks to Earthlng, who is the only MEMBER (and I am the owner) of the ghacksuserjs GitHub organization, and as such he has full control over the repository. His contributions have really helped bring the ghacks user.js to another level in so many ways, and the work put in with generating diffs, research, and the changelog are fantastic.ReadmeI wrote a short little readme that outlines a few things. Go read it. Seriously, go read it.Default readme.md is shown on the home page here ( https://github.com/ghacksuserjs/ghacks-user.js )Sexier themed version is here ( https://ghacksuserjs.github.io/ghacks-user.js/ )Ghacks User.js changesChanged version numbering to match Firefox stable (see the release section below)Stripped out all non essential sections, such as Firefox Add-ons and Test Sites to the wiki section, and Palemoon and Things to Investigate to issuesRemoved the troubleshooting list (see tags below)Super-simplified and shortened the original intro/readme – most of this moved to the “Wiki: Getting Started” pagesFormatted the js so all multi-line text can collapse and foldCleaned up all the typos, expanded acronyms, fixed grammar, used same syntax for parts (such as version start and end numbering)Added tags such as [WARNING], [SETUP], [SETTINGS], [TEST] and numbered references ,  etc.As a result the entire js is much easier to visually parse, read, and searchRevamped entire sections to be more logically ordered, with section sub-grouping if needed, and better explanations, including section descriptions when required. Even made some groupings and order based on commenting them out for more convenience. These sections include:0800: location bar / search bar / forms etc1000: cache1200: https / ciphers etc1600: headers / referers2800: shutdownSection revamps included improving some preferences (some were found to be deprecated or legacy, others were changed, some preferences are new, better descriptions and all that)Created a new section 2697: UA SpoofingCompared ghacks vs pyllyukko: we added 4 minor obscure preferences. (Documented in issue #10). Created a diff for pyllyukko to compare, and so far they have added almost 2 dozen items from ghacks, and still goingCompared ghacks values vs pyllyukko values for what we have in common: no changes. We differ on only 8 preferences due to a slightly different strategy. That’s a good sign. (Documented in issue #18)Upgraded to Firefox 52 compliantWikiAdd-ons Appendix is more informational with flags for e10s, WebExtension etcTest Sites Appendix expanded as wellReferences Appendix (Mozilla, MDN, TOR, CVE etc sites) addedThe “readme section” from the old js has become an in-depth “Getting Started” wiki section, and expanded (with pictures!), including a full overview of how a user.js works, how to backup properly, an implementation page, and even how to troubleshoot a preference.The implementation page led me to create a How To section on working with multiple profiles for both installed and portable Firefox, and how to run concurrent profiles. I will create the Lock Pref pages in due time.Added a “Scripts” section, including some greasemonkey (or similar) scripts and pointers for NoScript, uBlock Origin and uMatrix (this is a work in progress)Note: There are “sticky” issues for various wiki section suggestionsFuture plans include expanding the wiki even further with Tutorials and Articles and more How To’sReleasesAs mentioned, we changed the version number to match Firefox stableYou can read all about how we manage “releases” here ( https://github.com/ghacksuserjs/ghacks-user.js/issues/54 )Basically, the current “live” master user.js is always current stable and always being improvedAt the end of stable life-cycle, we now archive off a “release” for legacy and archival reasonsThen we change the master version number and as quickly as we can test and add preferences and deprecate items as per the new stable version. We know in advance a lot of the changes due to Earthlng’s diffsAs soon as we have worked through all the changes, we create a “pre-release”, and from this we can generate a user friendly changelog (Earthlng authors these, and they use the changelog label in issues). You can click labels to filter issues. We will always have an open “Changelog” issue, and older ones will be closed, but there for historical pruposes. They are a lot more user friendly than the atomic level commit history.Martin will republish Earthlng’s changelog here at ghacks as soon as we do them, just like he does a “What’s new in Firefox X”, there will be a “What’s new in ghacks user,js X”The delay last time was around 7 days from when stable landed. So expect that to be the approximate time frame, as we have to upgrade ourselves, test items and so on.Again, the “Pre-release” is a snapshot, the master user.js (here: https://github.com/ghacksuserjs/ghacks-user.js/blob/master/user.js ) is the one always being worked on.Future PlansBesides the obviousstable compliant releasesimproving the jsimproving tags and info on breakage and setupupdating and improving the wikiProviding branchespreset versions eg: “Relaxed”, “Hardened”, “Social Media” etc for use with multiple profileswhen Firefox 57 lands, maybe start an ESR branchThat’s about all. Everyone is welcome to come visit and contribute.RegardsThorin-OakenpantsSummaryArticle NameGhacks user.js goes githubDescriptionThe Ghacks Firefox user.js project has moved to the project hosting website Github for better manageability and other improvements.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement

The Type 20 is just an idea, but Volkswagen’s ID Buzz is an electric van expected to arrive in 2022 for real. The Type 20 is the “newest and oldest” concept car rolled into one.Image: VolkswagenBy Sasha Lekach2019-07-03 00:24:36 UTC This is not your parents’ VW bus. Looks familiar…Image: volkswagenIt may look like the Type 2 bus from back in the 1960s (yes, it’s sometimes called a hippie bus), but the Type 20 bus unveiled Tuesday at Volkswagen’s Innovation and Engineering Center California (IECC) in the Bay Area is filled with “high-tech surprises,” as executives said during its grand reveal. It’s an all-electric concept car converted from a 1962 Type 2 11-window Microbus.The IECC also debuted Tuesday at the former Electronics Research Laboratory in the same space, but with an expanded goal to bring digitization, connectivity, autonomy, and other advanced driving systems into research centers for VW and its other brands (like Audi, Porsche, Bentley, Lamborghini, and Bugatti). The Type 20 is named for the roughy 20 years Germany-based VW has been in Silicon Valley.The electric battery is 10 kWh, which isn’t that powerful compared to a Tesla Model 3 with a 50 kWh battery, but other features keep you busy, like the Porsche-developed software suspension system that raises the car up and down. When the driver approaches, the car rises in greeting. A tablet behind the steering wheel adds a 21st-century vibe to the hippie mobile.Inside, a ceiling screen creates a digital sunroof and a digital assistant can be summoned from microphones within the vehicle. A real-time facial recognition system recognizes the driver as part of an experiment with biometric control and access to the vehicle. Behind the driver seat, it’s a very communal experience with a wraparound bench. Then there’s the noticeable wheels and rearview mirrors — and even steering wheel — that uses a nature-based design and build through software with a process called generative design. It’s supposed to create lightweight but high-strength material. Side mirrors you’ve never seen before.Image: volkswagen The same design is on the steering wheel.Image: volkswagen

5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist How men can have a healthy 2019 Hermitage’s owner, Bill Browder, said the outcome of the trial shows the government’s unwillingness to find and try the culprits.“Even though Kratov was only a minor player in the overall persecution of Sergei, the fact that the Russian authorities can’t even scapegoat their one scapegoat says everything about this case,” Browder said.Kratov pleaded not guilty to charges of negligence leading to death, saying he was unable to ensure medical care for Magnitsky because of a shortage of staff.The prison doctor thanked “everyone who believed in me and my innocence” after the verdict.The lawyer’s family has described the trial as a sham, maintaining that Kratov played a minor role in the man’s death and that officials responsible must face justice.The lawyer’s mother and attorney did not attend the ruling in protest.“Participation in this court hearing would have been humiliating for me,” Nataliya Magnitskaya said in a statement. “I understand that everything has been decided in advance and everything has been pre-determined.”Browder said that he does not doubt that “people responsible for Magnitsky’s death are being protected by the president of Russia. Top Stories Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day “In this case, there was overwhelming evidence of Kratov’s involvement and his acquittal goes against any logic or concept of justice,” he saidValery Borshchev, a human rights advocate who spearheaded the presidential commission’s investigation into Magnitsky’s death, was outraged with the court’s decision. Borshchev insisted that authorities must investigate overwhelming evidence collected by his commission that points to the fact that Magnitsky was tortured.“Kratov and others are guilty because there were inadequate conditions to treat Magnitsky,” he told the Interfax news agency. “The conditions in jail were torturous, and doctors didn’t do anything to change that.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Associated PressMOSCOW (AP) – The only official charged with the death of a Russian whistleblowing lawyer walked free on Friday after a Moscow court acquitted him of negligence, in a case that has become a rallying point for human rights advocates and sparked escalating legislation in the U.S. and Russia.Sergei Magnitsky died in jail in 2009 after his pancreatitis went untreated, and an investigation by Russia’s presidential council on human rights concluded he was severely beaten and denied medical treatment. Prison doctor Dmitry Kratov was the only person to face trial in the case. Sponsored Stories 0 Comments Share Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Judge Tatyana Neverova said she found no evidence that Kratov’s negligence could have caused the lawyer’s death. The acquittal was widely expected after prosecutors earlier this week dropped their accusations, saying they had decided there was no connection between Kratov’s actions and Magnitsky’s death.The case has angered both Russian activists and the West. The U.S. Congress passed legislation this month in Magnitsky’s name, calling for sanctions against officials _ including Kratov _ deemed to be connected with human rights abuses. The bill provoked retaliation from Moscow, including a measure barring Americans from adopting Russian children that President Vladimir Putin signed on Friday.Magnitsky, a lawyer for the Hermitage Capital fund, was arrested in 2008 on suspicion of tax evasion by the same Interior Ministry officials he accused of using false tax documents to steal $230 million from the state. He died while in custody awaiting trial.Government officials have dismissed calls to investigate police officials and the only official charged in his death was Kratov, who was deputy chief physician at the Butyrskaya prison where Magnitsky was held.

MONTREAL — Renowned Quebec director Robert Lepage says his previously cancelled play about black slavery has been rewritten and reworked before it is presented once again on stage next month.Lepage published a long public letter today in which he acknowledges what he calls his clumsiness and misjudgments in his early production of “SLAV,” which drew the ire of black activists for its alleged racial insensitivity.The play included a mostly white cast picking cotton and singing black slave songs and was cancelled following a brief run last summer during the Montreal International Jazz Festival.Activists protested outside the theatre and accused Lepage of appropriating black pain for profit.Lepage says in his letter that he met the group of activists and opened an important dialogue about the concept of cultural appropriation.He says he invited a member of the group to rehearsals of SLAV to witness changes made to the show before it is remounted across Quebec in 2019.The Canadian Press Robert Lepage says controversial SLAV play ‘reworked and ‘rewritten’ by The Canadian Press Posted Dec 28, 2018 9:51 am PDT Canadian playwright, actor, film director and stage director Robert Lepage speaks to reporters at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa on November 10, 2010.
