Argos launches sameday delivery across UK in bid to woo Christmas shoppers

first_img Argos has launched a same-day delivery service across the UK seven days a week. It is the first British retailer to do so, as it bids to entice customers to its service ahead of the busy Christmas period.Rolling out its Fast Track Delivery and Fast Track Collection services, Argos states that 20,000 products will be available for same-day home delivery to customers from within their local area. For a flat fee of £3.95, customers will have four time slots each day in which to order their item, with any purchase ordered by 6pm promised to be delivered by 10pm the same day.Andy Brown, central operations director at Argos told IBTimes UK that the service was a unique offering in the UK and it would be offered beyond the Christmas shopping season.Argos is unique in that, rather than working from a central warehouse, were picking from the store thats local to you. The product is held locally which means we can pick it very quickly and can deliver it to the door from the store, he said.We think this service is particularly relevant at Christmas when youre shopping online and you want the certainty of knowing exactly when youre product is coming. However, for us it isnt just a Christmas offer. Were going to be launching this as a standard service, seven days a week, all year, added Brown.The announcement comes with 80 days to go until Christmas, a vital time for retailers to attract festive shoppers to use their services. Whilst Argos is not the fastest delivery service, with Amazon offering one-hour delivery in London and Birmingham to subscribers of its Prime service, they are the first major retailer to offer same-day delivery to any customers across all parts of the UK.In the financial year to February 2015, Argos sales were £4.1 bn ($6.27bn, €5.58bn) with the company employing some 29,000 people across the business.

Uncovered Remains At Forgotten Sugar Land Grave Site Tell Their Own Texas

first_img X 00:00 /00:57 Listen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:center_img Archaeologists continue to learn more about who was buried in a forgotten cemetery in Sugar Land. They are currently exhuming and testing the 94 identified grave sites, which were first discovered in February 2018 during the construction of a Fort Bend ISD building. The graves have turned out to be quite the find, according to bio-archaeologist Catrina Banks Whitley, who is working at the Sugar Land site. “It really is just a very rare opportunity to learn about people, and learn about people that their life story is never really told,” said Banks Whitley. From testing done so far, experts say they believe the people buried were convicts that were forced to work the sugar cane fields in the area while they were serving time. Regional sugar cane production is how Sugar Land earned its name. Sugar cane was first produced through slave labor. After the Civil War, prison laborers were leased out to work the fields in lieu of slaves. Banks Whitley said the remains tested so far are all African-American males, except one, and some of their remains show musculoskeletal stress.“As you continue to do heavy labor over and over and over again, it will change the structure of the bones, but it will also change the attachments. So, we’re able to see how they were using the muscles and the type of labor they were doing,” said Banks Whitley. – / 3Fort Bend ISD is overseeing the work at the site and was granted permission to exhume the remains June 4th. Fort Bend ISD Superintendent Dr. Charles Dupre said the discovery has somewhat impacted the construction of the district’s James Reese Career and Technical Center. “At this point we do plan to open in one year, as on schedule,” said Dupre.Though the building’s dimensions have been affected. “We’re going to finish it a few feet shorter than as planned. If we tried to finish it it would intrude significantly upon the grave sites.”   Sharelast_img read more

Django 30 is going async

first_imgLast year, Andrew Godwin, a Django contributor, formulated a roadmap to bring async functionality into Django. After a lot of discussion and amendments, the Django Technical Board approved his DEP 0009: Async-capable Django yesterday. Godwin wrote in a Google group, “After a long and involved vote, I can announce that the Technical Board has voted in favour of DEP 0009 (Async Django), and so the DEP has been moved to the “accepted” state.” The reason why Godwin thinks that this is the right time to bring async-native support in Django is that starting from version 2.1, it supports Python 3.5 and up. These Python versions have async def and similar native support for coroutines. Also, the web is now slowly shifting to use cases that prefer high concurrency workloads and large parallelizable queries. The motivation behind Async in Django The Django Enhancement Proposal (DEP) 0009 aims to address one of the core flaws in Python: inefficient threading. Python is not considered to be a perfect asynchronous language. Its ‘asyncio’ library for writing concurrent code suffers from some core design flaws. There are alternative async frameworks for Python but are incompatible. Django Channels brought some async support to Django but they primarily focus on WebSocket handling. Explaining the motivation, the DEP says, “At the same time, it’s important we have a plan that delivers our users immediate benefits, rather than attempting to write a whole new Django-size framework that is natively asynchronous from the start.” Additionally, most developers are unacquainted with developing Python applications that have async support. There is also a lack of proper documentation, tutorials, and tooling to help them. Godwin believes that Django can become a “good catalyst” to help in creating guidance documentation. Goals this DEP outlines to achieve The DEP proposes to bring support for asynchronous Python into Django while maintaining synchronous Python support as well in a backward-compatible way. Here are its end goals, that Godwin listed in his roadmap: Making the blocking parts in Django such as sessions, auth, the ORM, and handlers asynchronous natively with a synchronous wrapper exposed on top where needed to ensure backward compatibility. Keeping familiar models/views/templates/middleware layout intact with very few changes. Ensuring that these updates do not compromise speed and cause significant performance regressions at any stage of this plan. Enabling developers to write fully-async websites if they want to, but not enforcing this as the default way of writing websites. Welcoming new talent into the Djang team to help out on large-scale features. Timeline to achieve these goals Godwin in his “A Django Async Roadmap” shared the following timeline: Django Version Updates 2.1 Current in-progress release. No async work 2.2 Initial work to add async ORM and view capability, but everything defaults to sync by default, and async support is mostly threadpool-based. 3.0 Rewrite the internal request handling stack to be entirely asynchronous, add async middleware, forms, caching, sessions, auth. Start the deprecation process for any APIs that are becoming async-only. 3.1 Continue improving async support, potential async templating changes 3.2 Finish deprecation process and have a mostly-async Django. Godwin posted a summary of the discussion he had with the Django Technical Board in the Google Group. Some of the queries they raised were how the team plans to distinguish async versions of functions/method from sync ones, how this implementation will ensure that there is no performance hit if the user opts out of async mode, and more. In addition to these technical queries, the board also raised a non-technical concern, “The Django project has lost many contributors over the years, is essentially in a maintenance mode, and we likely do not have the people to staff a project like this.” Godwin sees a massive opportunity to lurking in this fundamental challenge – namely to revive the Django project. He adds, “I agree with the observation that things have substantially slowed down, but I personally believe that a project like async is exactly what Django needs to get going again. There’s now a large amount of fertile ground to change and update things that aren’t just fixing five-year-old bugs.” Read the DEP 0009: Async-capable Django to know more in detail.

Costa Rica dengue epidemic sets alltime record for calendar year

first_imgCosta Rica broke its all-time record for dengue cases after the Health Ministry announced that as of Sep. 21, the number of dengue cases had reached 38,497.The Health Ministry made the announcement at a Friday press conference, noting that the most recent week’s numbers, coupled with additional cases backdated to previous weeks added 1,658 instances of the disease. The year 2007 held the previous high, with 37,798 cases according to the Health Ministry.Despite the high number of cases, mortalities remain low, with at most 13 suspected deaths from the virus in Costa Rica – a mortality rate of 0.03 percent.The ministry also reported 111 cases of severe dengue, which the World Health Organization (WHO) classified as including severe bleeding, plasma leaking, respiratory distress and organ failure.At Friday’s press conference, María Trejos, from the Health Ministry, said that cases have started dropping from historic weekly highs, despite being in the middle of the mosquito-loving rainy season, even in the worst regions such as the Pacific Northwest.“Regions such as Nicoya, where they are working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week have seen a drop in the number of cases of the disease,” Trejos said.Previous weekly tallies had peaked at 2,300 cases in July and August. In each of the past three weeks reports have fallen below 2,000 cases.Though the official numbers do break 2007’s record, the ministry urged caution in interpreting the figures. Health officials said they are not testing every instance of dengue. Many of the reported dengue cases are merely suspected instances of the disease.Dengue is a mosquito-borne virus found in tropical regions from Asia to Latin America. It was first recognized in the 1950s in the Phillipines and Thailand, according to WHO. The virus often causes severe flu-like symptoms, including fevers, vomiting, weakness and headaches.The Health Ministry has reported that the high rate of infection this year is due to the presence of three strains in the country. As with most viral infections, the human body develops an immunity after surviving an attack. In the case of dengue, immunity to one strain does not provide immunity to the other strains.Though weekly incidence rates remain high, the ministry credited a broad education campaign with helping to lower those numbers during the peak of rainy season. Costa Rica’s government has held the position that community involvement in removing mosquito nurseries –small pools of standing water – as the primary tool in combating the epidemic. The government has advertisements in all media, a program with the Health Ministry, and has adopted elements of popular culture such as creating a “Dengue Merengue” and using the popular song from the band Calypso Limón, “Zancudo con dengue, ¡No me piques más!,” which means “Dengue mosquito, don’t bite me anymore.” The Culture Ministry held a contest for a video on dengue using the song, and here is the winner:Zancudo con dengueThe Health Ministry estimated it has spent $464,000 in 2013 on dengue advertisements. The overall message is to clean gutters, remove tires and manage any other receptacle or area where water might accumulate.Costa Rica is not alone in facing a dengue crisis in 2013. Honduras declared a state of emergency on dengue in July. The New York Times reported that millions could have the virus in India.

Egypt Owner of belly dancing TV station arrested

This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) How men can have a healthy 2019 Still, mothers and grandmothers traditionally teach young girls belly dancing at home, particularly by watching old black-and-white movies that made earlier generations of belly dancers household names in Egypt.Early Thursday, Egyptian vice police raided an apartment in central Cairo where the station’s owner, Baligh Hamdy, had been running the operations and recording most of the videos, the security official said. Police confiscated tapes and video equipment and arrested Hamdy.The official said Hamdy would record the videos and send them over the Internet to his partners in Bahrain and Jordan, who would in turn broadcast them on the station’s satellite TV, making it accessible in Egypt and elsewhere.The raid was prompted by complaints from viewers, the official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media.Besides the belly dancing, the station also carries advertisements for sexual enhancement products and matchmaking messages.Hamdy is accused of airing ads that offend public decency, the official said.While Egypt has grown increasingly conservative over the years, many rights groups fear an Islamist political class growing in influence may push for more censorship and use laws that vaguely define offending public decency to clamp down on the arts and freedom of expression.

Available on satellite TV for more than a year, the station has gained a dedicated following, in part because it shows a quintessentially Egyptian art form that has grown increasingly inaccessible for many people in the country, having been largely relegated to expensive clubs and hotels as the country has grown more conservative in recent few decades.

Doctors to make final decision on strike by Monday

first_imgBy Evie AndreouState doctors’ union PASYKI will decide on Monday whether they will proceed with their announced strike on Wednesday, the union’s deputy Dr Lia Vounou said on Friday.If the union, which has been threatening to strike and then postponing measures all through last year, accepts Health Minister Philippos Patsalis’ proposals however, they will have to forego any new strike measures until July under the deal.The union announced last week their intention to go on a 24-hour strike on Wednesday because their demands concerning overtime pay, unfreezing of hospital administrator posts and better working conditions for contract doctors, were not met before the end of 2014, as promised by Patsalis.Patsalis, who met with them on Friday offered solutions to their problems but said as a precondition that they must refrain from announcing further strike measures for the foreseeable future.“A precondition for the application of the proposal is the suspension of all strike measures the state doctors have announced for next Wednesday or new measures from PASYKI until the … hospital autonomy is effected in July 2015” the ministry announced after the meeting.PASYKI, said later in the day that the minster’s proposals had only arrived after union working hours so they would put off a final decision until Monday.According to Patsalis’ proposals his ministry will agree to the immediate implementation of the new system for state doctors’ overtime pay drawn by Deloitte, the review of the contracts of newly-hired doctors and for the inclusion of provisions that will secure better working conditions, as well as for the support of the motion to unfreeze 56 hospital administrator posts.The ministry is to discuss the unfreezing with the House budget committee on Monday. “The proposal gives solution to the specific problems of state doctors until permanent solutions are given with the restructuring and autonomy of hospitals,” the ministry said.You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
