Questions Linger over Government Grants

first_img News Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak The Ministry ofUnification budget allocated to improving North Korean human rights is currently just 0.01% of the total ministerial budget, suggesting, some say,that the government may not have a genuine interest in bettering human rightsconditions in North Korea. RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR SHARE North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest AvatarCho Jong Ik Facebook Twitter News By Cho Jong Ik – 2014.07.16 8:44pm On June 11th, the Ministry of Unification selected 26private organizations to receive governmental support. Surprisingly given the nature of the North Korea issue, not onegroup with a focus on human rights was chosen, leading to vocal criticism thatthe government may lack the desire to deal with questions of human rights violations.  Starting on April 25th, the application process lasted for 20 days, whereupon a grant committee including a number of foreign experts rigorouslyassessed a total of 89 applicant organizations. The grants handed out to thevictorious 26 totalled $630,000 USD over the course of the year, approximately $100,000 USD lessthan in 2013. The types of groupsselected include ones that seek to unify public opinion concerning unification; othersthat provide education on unification to future generations; and still morethat accurately inform others about North Korean society and work to bringabout peaceful unification. Of the 26 groups that were selected, the majority took as their focus North-South trade cooperation orunification processes, and more than 90% were specifically related to“unification”.A handful of humanrights organizations applied, yet while human rights was specifically mentioned as an attribute or area that such a group might focus upon,not one organization centered on North Korean human rights was selected, and norwere any with tangential roots in the area. This has led to criticism of theprocess, and of the government itself. It has even been alleged that human rightsgroups were dropped to avoid any possible conflict with the progressive sphere.Seven one-time“concert” projects were selected, leading also to the assertion that the Ministry “mightas well be an entertainment company.” Moreover, five victorious groups weregiven follow-on grants from 2013, causing concerns over transparency. An official related tothe process told Daily NK on condition of anonymity, “I heard directly thatNorth Korean human rights groups received good scores from the foreign expert panel.”However, “The Ministry ignored these evaluations and unilaterally decided the successfulcandidates.”“One can only concludethat the outcome was decided on impulse. Giving aid to groups putting together‘events’ is contrary to their principles [those of the Park administration] and is no help to unification policy,” the source pointed out,adding, “There are even rumors around that they could have pre-selected the winners.”The Ministry ofUnification is remaining tight-lipped about the case, and an official dismissedDaily NK’s request for comment, stating simply, “In accordance withregulations, we do not disclose the names of the organizations that applied. Weused objective standards including stated missions, potential for progress, and budgetsto select the winners.” News News Questions Linger over Government Grantslast_img read more

CU-Boulder Hosts 'Battle Of The Brains' Computer Programming Contest

first_imgSome of the best and brightest computer science students in the Rocky Mountain region will face off Saturday, Oct. 28, in an all-out “battle of the brains” contest of logic, strategy and mental endurance at the University of Colorado at Boulder. The Association for Computing Machinery’s International Collegiate Programming Contest, sponsored by IBM, is the oldest, largest and most prestigious programming contest in the world, with more than 6,000 teams competing in 84 countries this fall. More than 150 students will participate on 52 teams in the Rocky Mountain Regional competition, which will be held simultaneously in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Canada. Eleven teams, including three from CU-Boulder, will compete on the Boulder campus. The contest will be held in the Engineering Center’s computer science education labs, room ECCR 128 and adjoining rooms, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. A practice contest will precede the competition on Friday, starting at 7:30 p.m., to allow the participating teams to become familiar with the contest environment at CU. The winning team from the Rocky Mountain Regional will be one of 85 regional winners advancing to the World Finals in Tokyo to be held March 12-16, 2007. CU-Boulder Associate Professor Ken Anderson, site director for the Rocky Mountain Regional contest, said the competition fosters creativity, teamwork and innovation. Contest rules call for students to work in teams of three to solve up to eight complex, real-world problems within a five-hour period, which is equivalent to completing a semester’s worth of computer programming in one afternoon. Students collaborate with their teammates to write a software program, and test and debug it for each problem. The team that solves the most problems in the least amount of time wins. A 20-minute penalty is assessed for each incorrect answer. Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: Oct. 23, 2006 last_img read more

News / The number of redundant containerships in lay-up is at its highest for 18 months

first_imgBy Mike Wackett 30/09/2015 Some 90,000 teu of cellular capacity was consigned to lay-up in the past two weeks, taking redundant tonnage to its highest level since March 2014, according to liner shipping analysts Alphaliner.Significantly, the list of 208 ships, or some 673,000 teu, includes four containerships of 13,000 teu or over – two operated by MSC and one each by APL and UASC.The 13,892 teu APL Temasek has been at anchor since 10 August, a casualty of blanked sailings and service curtailments by the G6 alliance in response to weak demand from Europe for Asian imports.And given the depressed state of the Asia-Europe trade the short-term prospects of its reactivation, along with the 13,102 teu MSC Margrit, UASC’s 13,100 teu Tayma and the 13,000 teu MSC Flavia, appear bleak. Container lines are now reassessing winter slack season programmes – the G6 Alliance today said it would combine its two Asia-US east coast services for the period, while its Asia-US west coast CC2 service will be suspended from week 44. Maersk Line said recently it was looking at removing a further two- four east-west strings in the final quarter of the year.In many cases the 13,000 teu type has become a second choice vessel for the four deepsea alliances on the Asia-Europe trade as members receive more 18,000 teu ships from shipyards. And with more ultra-large 18,000 teu-plus ships stemmed for delivery this year, 2016 and 2017, it puts the 13,000-teus in danger of becoming unemployable.Alphaliner expects more container vessels to join the unemployed fleet soon.“Weak demand across almost all tradelanes globally has taken a heavy toll on containership demand. On top of this, a constant stream of vessel deliveries continues to add to the supply side pressure.”It said that since the beginning of July around 480,000 teu of new vessel capacity had been added to the world fleet.Drewry Maritime Advisors this week reported that the number of containerships sold for scrapping this year was running at less than half the rate of 2014, with only 47 vessels demolished in the first six months of 2015 compared with 107 at the same stage the previous year.Drewry expects scrapping to dwindle for the remainder of the year, putting the number of demolished ships at its lowest since 2011. It said this was partly due to a spurt of new intra-Asia services at the beginning of the year and the temporary switch of some Asia-US west coast services to the US east coast during strike-related disruption.However, the main barrier to ship demolition has been the plunge in scrap values caused by a downturn in global demand for steel.The resulting oversupply of steel has been exacerbated by scrapping subsidies granted by the Chinese government to its state-owned shipping lines, forcing the price of its domestic steel down to around half the price of a year ago and flooding the market with cheap steel.last_img read more

Calhoun Lawyers: Bond Injunction Causing Missed Court Dates

first_img0:56 | Play story Add to My ListIn My List For Whom The Bell Rings A legal battle out of Calhoun, Ga. over the constitutionality of jailing people too poor to afford bond is on its way back into the hands of a lower court.About a year ago, a district court judge enjoined the city of Calhoun from detaining indigent defendants for misdemeanors or minor traffic cases. Last week, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals lifted the injunction, saying it was too light on detail.But lawyers for the City of Calhoun now say they’re seeing a significant increase in the number of people missing court dates since the injunction was issued.“The increase in Calhoun of failures to appear exceeded 100 percent during the time period that we were under the injunction,” said Andy Davis of Brinson Askew Barry, the law firm defending the city. He says the firm’s been looking at data from Calhoun courts.U.S. District Judge Harold Murphy will make the next decision on what happens with the original lawsuit. The suit was brought by the Southern Center for Human Rights on behalf of a man who was jailed for six days for public intoxication. Maurice Walker’s attorneys argued he couldn’t afford bond, and keeping him detained because he’s poor violates the equal protection clause.The case has drawn national attention, including a brief filed by the U.S. Department of Justice under former President Barack Obama.An attorney with a Washington-based non profit, Civil Rights Corps, defended the injunction before the appeals court last year. That group has been challenging bail policies like Calhoun’s in cities across the country.Lawyers for Calhoun said the effect they’ve seen there is playing out in other cities that have changed their bail policies when faced with legal challenges.“Rome has had a similar effect. I know of at least three other jurisdictions we’ve talked to that have similar rises in those folks who fail to appear in court,” said Davis.The Southern Center declined to comment and Civil Rights Corps couldn’t be reached by deadline.Because of the suit, the Calhoun’s courts now releases people if they don’t get a bail hearing within 48 hours of their arrest.

Heroes’ fate could determine Activision’s

first_imgHeroes’ fate could determine Activision’sSuperData’s Joost van Dreunen examines how Heroes of the Storm is faring months after launch and what it means for ATVIJoost van DreunenTuesday 13th October 2015Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articleActivision BlizzardIt has been four months since Activision’s contender for the MOBA market, Heroes of the Storm, came out. Back in June, we asked: “Can Blizzard’s Storm tackle a saturating MOBA market?” Specifically, as this unique and newly emerging market started showing signs of saturation, we looked at whether Heroes was going to take market share from the incumbents or, as the Activision executive team stated during E3, manage to bring new players into the market?Certainly, Heroes has become a lot more important for Activision, not in the least to stem dwindling subscriber numbers from its World of Warcraft franchise. And now that all of the legacy publishers are aggressively exploring new revenue and distribution models, having a strong performing digital title is key to keeping the confidence of audiences and financial analysts alike. Following the success of Hearthstone, some Wall street analysts are hoping to see Heroes rise to that same level, forecasting revenues of about $200 million by end of next year.Here’s what the data tells us.”The bigger titles are slowly draining the life out of the smaller ones in the market” Since we last reported on MOBAs, a few things have changed. For one, the overall market has grown only slightly, 3.9 percent since April, providing further evidence of our previous claim that the market has reached a plateau. Following several years of spectacular expansion, its addressable audience has settled, forcing publishers to compete more aggressively over existing market share. Second, each of the major titles has managed to outpace the market growth rate. During April to August this year, League of Legends grew its monthly active user base by 8 percent, Dota 2 by 11 percent and SMITE by 14 percent. Having reached saturation, the MOBA market is starting to consolidate. In August 2014, the top four MOBA titles accounted for 59 percent of the global market. Today that share is 67 percent. Perhaps seeing the early signs, Electronic Arts had already canceled development of its MOBA contender Dawngate, and earlier this year Turbine/Warner Bros. shut down Infinite Crisis. The bigger titles are slowly draining the life out of the smaller ones in the market. Despite these rising barriers to entry, Activision showed its confidence by moving forward with the release of Heroes. In part, it was likely the courage gathered from having a whopping 9 million users register for the beta back in February that fueled this decision. As our ability to capture traffic numbers is still at an early stage, the current count appears to have more than doubled, having reached 22 million registered players. Activision’s 800-pound marketing machine has so far successfully carried Heroes forward. In fact, in terms of monthly active users, it has already left two of the top titles in the MOBA market, SMITE and Heroes of Newerth, behind. In fairness, however, this was to be expected. Given the strength of Activision’s intellectual property and publishing prowess, Heroes is a baby behemoth.”The real question everyone is looking to answer is, of course, whether a legacy publisher like Activision can truly fully adapt to the new reality of digital gaming” One thing that has potentially prevented Heroes from reaching a larger audience is a somewhat unfortunate launch period. During the first 90 days–often a critical period in building up momentum in its marketing effort–both the number 1 and 2 in the market held major events. First, in August Dota 2 held its championships, The International, which reached a new record with a fan-funded prize pool of $18 million. Valve’s own marketing machine is not to be underestimated, since it relies not on traditional marketing channels, but on the fans and players themselves. Second, August was also the month in which market leader League of Legends had started to ramp up excitement for its own championships in October. While its prize pool may not be as spectacular, League’s overall market position and ability to reach a massive audience has allowed it to stay in the public’s eye, dominating headlines and marketing channels everywhere. If we look at live streaming channels like Twitch, using it as a proxy for consumer interest for Heroes, we notice that during its release month the concurrent viewer count more than doubled. However, since then, it has dropped back to 46 percent higher than during its pre-release period. The audience for League of Legends viewers, on the other hand, has grown 14 percent during that time, but is roughly 21 times larger in absolute unique viewers.Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans! North West Amiqus GamesJunior Video Editor – GLOBAL publisher United Kingdom Amiqus GamesDiscover more jobs in games Obviously, it is far too early to compare Heroes to the number one game in the category. With a monthly active user count of just over 6 million only a few months after launch, Heroes may not seem like much compared to a titan like League of Legends. But consider for a moment that it took League almost two years (21 months) to get to that same level of player activity. Valve’s Dota 2 took even longer: 33 months. In those terms, Heroes is currently outperforming everyone. If we add it all up, we have to conclude that, so far, Heroes of the Storm is doing well. But, to answer our earlier question, rather than bringing new players into the market, Heroes has mostly grown by attracting players already familiar with the genre. What we will be looking for next is Activision making a strong play during its second act. Heroes cannot merely be just another MOBA title, looking to capture market share from a few early movers. Rather, we’d expect the publisher to leverage its other properties.More broadly, the success of Heroes is tied closely to the success of Activision. If the publisher cannot succeed here, it opens the door to speculation that the giant, which previously did so well in gobbling up market share in the pay-to-play MMO market and collectible card game genre, may have lost some of its edge. The real question everyone is looking to answer is, of course, whether a legacy publisher like Activision can truly fully adapt to the new reality of digital gaming. The absence of larger success–why, for instance, has it not yet released any statements that brag about an overwhelming number of players joining the game?–gives rise to uncertainty. Perhaps even Activision has finally found its match in competitors like Valve and Riot Games. Or maybe we are just now in the quiet before the storm.Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Publishing & Retail newsletter and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.

Activision’s ability to adapt to it will, ultimately, affect its long-term success. Throughout the article, I’ve clearly stated that both HotS and Activision are doing fine so far, but there currently is no reason to assume “uncertainty in ATVI.”I hope this clarifies it.BTW, I’m totally stealing that expression: “…will spell sunshine in their neighbourhood.” :o) 5 years ago There once was WoW and then there were table scraps. Sure, big table scraps worth millions of Dollars, but scraps nonetheless. I look at those two charts and think, once more, there is only LoL and table scraps now. The scraps are still a lot of money, which speaks to the absolute size of the market.I am unsure how Activision figures into Blizzard’s decision to enter that market. After all, Battle.Net is a Blizzard client and other Activision IPs do not exist there, even if they were released on PC. 7 years into the merger and your regular gamer most likely does not know that Activision and Blizzard is one company.Overwatch is the far more interesting thing to look at. In contrast to Hearthstone and Heroes, Overwatch does not get the benefit of a quick slap-on of established characters fishing for nostalgia. 3Sign inorRegisterto rate and replyKlaus Preisinger Freelance Writing 0Sign inorRegisterto rate and replySign in to contributeEmail addressPasswordSign in Need an account?
