Would my honourable friend agree that what is missing is the bit that enables us to get the money to move to the new system. There is no money for the transition.

More than 350 members of staff would relocate. The site itself is roughly the size of the centre of St Andrews so geographically, physically it is a huge deal. It also enables us to fulfil another ambition which would be to relocate some of our professional staff, people like me who don't work with students every day down here and so we have a separate project which is not part of the Cities Deal but a separate project to relocate 350 people.

And it is impressive – the iPhone 7 for example only records at 420fps. However, there's a catch. Sony only lets you record super slow motions in bursts of 0.82 seconds, which turns into six seconds of payback at a normal frame rate. The other slight issue is actually capturing the slow-motion footage. You have to open the Camera app, select Super Slow Motion mode, start recording, then press the Super Slow Motion icon when you want to record your 0.82 seconds of 920fps action. Tricky to get right. That said, when you do get it right, the footage you get looks stunning. Hopefully there'll be a software update that enables longer bursts of slow-motion capture. Next on the list of Sony’s “new reasons to buy a Sony smartphone” is the "predictive photography" feature. Sony has put a dedicated memory chip in its camera makeup. This acts sort of like a RAM just for the camera.

e. growth). The faith that growth equals progress is akin to the Cargo Cult of Keynesianism, the notion that expanding debt exponentially to drive diminishing returns of growth is not only necessary but a moral imperative. Both the religion of growth and its Cargo Cult are narratives used to justify the expansion of global finance via financialization. Expanding capital, profits and power is the key driver, and the religion of growth is merely the public-relations narrative that mesmerizes the debt-serfs, political toadies and media sycophants. Does this look like a world with plenty of room for everything to expand? Does this look like a world ripe for limitless expansion of debt to fuel limitless growth of consumption? This leads to a fundamental question: how do we design a system that enables us to do more with less of everything ? How do we design a system that incentivizes doing more with less rather than squandering resources via optimizing human greed? A DeGrowth economy must fulfill two requirements: 1.

One thing that thankfully has gone, though, is the ugly camera hump of the LG G5. That’ been flattened out with the LG G6’s camera now flush mounted to the rear of the phone. Also worth noting is that the LG G6 will come in three colours: “Ice Platinum”, “Astro Black”, and “Mystic White”. Image 7 of 13 Why the long screen, though? The key advantage – so says LG – is that it gives you more screen real estate while being able to still hold and operate the phone with one hand: it’s essentially a 5.7in display in the body of a 5.2in phone, according to the South Korean manufacturer. LG also says it enables more effective multitasking, with the ability to dock a pair of square screens side-by-side. I’m not convinced by this argument; in fact I think it could even be a detriment in some circumstances – you’ll likely see black bars right and left of the display while watching movies and TV, for instance.

You can also easily browse through the various software categories such as Education, Games, Internet and so forth, which makes it easy to locate the apps you wish to install. Of the lot, the Gnome spin appears to offer more functionality than the others. For instance, you can right-click the desktop and click Settings to launch the Control Center from where users can configure various essential elements such as privacy and sharing, apart from the usual fare i.e. network, security etc. For example, under Privacy, users can determine how long they wish to retain the history, enable location access, which would allow apps to use Wi-Fi to determine your location and even purge trash and temporary files. In contrast, the Control Center on the Mate spin enables you to access all the usual configurable elements but doesnt offer the option to tweak Privacy or Sharing settings.

Free MP3 Cutter and Editor Sometimes an MP3 or WAV file isnt what you want. You might have recorded from an old vinyl LP or cassette and now have the entire album as a single audio file, or you might be making your own recordings and want to add fades to the intro or outro. Or you might just want to adjust the volume to make it louder or quieter. You dont need a complex editing app for that. Just download Free MP3 Cutter and Editor instead. Why you need it If youre digitizing old analog records or have entire albums rendered as one single file, it makes sense to split things into individual tracks. Free MP3 Cutter and Editor enables you to do just that, and if the beginning or end is too jarring you can quickly add a fade in or out. You can also adjust the volume or maximize it to get it as loud as possible without distortion, and you can convert stereo to mono and vice versa.

You're covered on PCs running anything from Windows 2000 up. There's Mac support, Linux backup scripts, iOS, Android and Windows mobile clients, and backup support for Windows Server, Microsoft SQL, Exchange, SharePoint and Oracle. The baseline 250GB storage may not be enough for everyone, but hybrid backup support the ability to save some files locally allows you to be more selective about which files head for the cloud, and which stay nearby. Once your data is online it can be accessed via a web interface, synced with computers or mobiles, and there's even a mechanism for sharing files via email, Facebook and Twitter. IDrive Express is a feature which enables quickly backing up or restoring your system via a physically shipped drive. Unusually, the Business plan allows three free backups per year. Despite all this functionality, the ability to create subaccounts for your storage space and a straightforward web-based management console helps you keep track of what's going on.

His victims, however, are enraged that it took the Vatican six years to decide that the founder should be isolated, but not expelled, from the community. The church official stressed that to his knowledge, none of Francisreduced sentences had put children at risk. Many canon lawyers and church authorities argue that defrocking pedophiles can put society at greater risk because the church no longer exerts any control over them. They argue that keeping the men in restricted ministry, away from children, at least enables superiors to exert some degree of supervision. But Collins said the church must also take into account the message that reduced canonical sentences sends to both survivors and abusers. “While mercy is important, justice for all parties is equally important,” Collins said in an email. “If there is seen to be any weakness about proper penalties, then it might well send the wrong message to those who would abuse."

Sexual reproduction and viral infections both rely on a functionally identical protein, according to new research. The protein enables the fusion of two cells, such as a sperm cell and egg cell, or the fusion of a virus with a cell membrane. The discovery suggests that the protein evolved early in the history of life on Earth, and new details about the protein's function could help fight parasitic diseases such as malaria.

Almost all software packages provide binaries for Debian, so you won't have installation woes for any package. Verdict: 4/5 Arch Arch doesn't believe in hiding the internal workings of the system. Like Gentoo, it's great if you wish to learn what makes a Linux distro tick. But despite their similarities, Arch provides a somewhat simpler way of building your system. You don't have to spend precious hours maintaining and grooming the system, as you do with Gentoo. With its minimalistic philosophy, Arch stands in contrast to most other distros that compete to be the most feature-rich and beautiful. Other than a core system, which enables you to install additional packages, Arch makes no assumption about the kind of system you want, and allows users to mould the distro. Building the distro from the ground-up results in a much speedier system. Like Slackware, Arch provides software packages from upstream without any modifications.

Read the full review: Panasonic Lumix ZS50 / TZ70 The PowerShot SX710 HS is appealing to both absolute beginners and to those with a little more experience of photography. On the back is a small mode dial which enables you to quickly switch between different exposure modes, including full manual and semi-automatic modes for those who want to take control, plus fully automatic and scene modes. The 30x optical zoom covers an excellent range of focal lengths and gives plenty of flexibility for the average holiday shooter. There's no touchscreen however, but you can't really complain at the price. A nicely capable camera for those who just want a point and shoot compact with a long focal length zoom range. Read the full review: Canon PowerShot SX710 HS If you're wanting a compact camera that can do a better job than your smartphone the WX220 ticks a lot of boxes, especially when you consider the extra flexibility offered by the 10x optical zoom, running from 25-250mm.
