The X-Men cinematic universe is complicatedperhaps more complicated than that of any other superhero franchise. There are the original films, prequels , spin-offs and a movie that basically erased the original series and started a whole new timeline. Now, the newest entry in the series, Logan , will take place in a future world where mutants are dying out. Here's where all the movies fit on the fictional timeline and (spoiler alert!) summaries of the plots for those who have forgotten what's happened so far.

BARCELONA: Bharti Airtel Chairman Sunil Mittal has urged sectoral regulator TRAI to adopt a long-term vision for the industry and not approach regulations in "fits and starts" or reactive manner. He said that it is the responsibility of the regulator to ensure that there is "amicable co-existence of operators, less noise, and more work" in the system. "My view on this is that the regulator needs to have a long-term vision for this industry. You cannot be doing things in fits and starts. Too much of activity is happening in reactive manner," Mittal told reporters on sidelines of the Mobile World Congress. He was responding to a specific query on TRAI recently seeking industry's views on promotional offers and predatory pricing. TRAI last month came out with a consultation paper to review the rules of tariff assessment with regards to promotional offers and predatory pricing, issues that have triggered a public spat between incumbent operators like Bharti Airtel and newcomer Reliance Jio.

(video link) Since the release of the Game Boy in 1989, there has been a pretty fundamental split between playing games on a TV-based console and playing games on a portable system. Aside from pricey experiments like the Turbo Express , playing on the go meant making significant and understandable sacrifices in graphical and computational power (and, often, controls) compared to contemporary home consoles. With the Switch, Nintendo seems to be betting that the continued drum beat of Moore's Law and miniaturization has made that dichotomy moot. The Switch is an attempt to drag the portable gaming market kicking and screaming to a point where it's literally indistinguishable from the experience you'd get playing on a 1080p HDTV. Nintendo is betting that a system that fits in a diminutive tablet form factor is now powerful enough to feel acceptably modern when you throw it into an included dock and blow it up to full size on your living room wall.

Adobe's AI learns from past behavior as well as trial and error to learn how to make a gentle nudge without being too pushy. That's a bit of the art and science behind deep learning, says Bates. But that's where a lot of these signals can be built into the algorithms. If it creates an unnatural signal or puts someone off, it can be built into the training itself. While deep learning is becoming a part of the retail experience, it's happening in fits and starts, as Facebook found with chatbots. Touted as a tool that could automate customer-service functions and deepen human engagement, chatbots were added to Facebook Messenger, with more than 11,000 of them available last year. But last week, Facebook scaled back its chatbot ambitions after they clocked a 70% failure rate. As with the early days of the Web, there remains much work to do before deep learning can be seamlessly integrated into the daily lives of consumers.

Jeep has a long history with vehicle customization and personalization going back to the first CJ Jeeps produced after WWII. These days, instead of plows, seeders, and hay rakes, Jeep customers are looking for aftermarket equipment designed for improved off-road capabilities, everyday usability, and curb-size appearance. Mopar has been there for much of Jeep’s history but is now enjoying a renaissance in popularity thanks to a wide selection of dealer add-on parts. These accessories are able to be wrapped inside vehicle financing and are covered under warranty. Mopar’s latest batch of parts fits Jeep’s newest product – the 2017 Jeep Compass. This two-row crossover slots between the Renegade and Cherokee, both in size and price. Its sleek, modern looks are arguably more attractive than the Cherokee, while still harking back to Jeep’s glory days.

Margery Kempe was known for religious fervour, and a list in the manuscript of her pioneering autobiography has been analysed as a prescribed cure for her fits It is a case that has intrigued historians, psychiatrists and theologians for the last 80 years, but an academic has found what may be the oldest known attempt to diagnose Margery Kempe’s erratic religious behaviour. A recipe for medicinal sweets, written 600 years ago in the back of the medieval mystic’s memoir, has been deciphered by Dr Laura Kalas Williams – and the Exeter University-based researcher is convinced that it reveals an attempt to prescribe a cure for Kempe’s notorious fits of devotion. Though the recipe, written in the final portfolio of the 1438 manuscript, has long been known to scholars, it had hitherto proved impossible to read. Dr Andrea Clarke, the British Library’s lead curator of medieval and early modern manuscripts, suggested multispectral-imaging technology be used to reveal its secrets.

It is unbecoming of those in the travel trade to delve into matters that the authorities have put behind when they should be voicing support for proactive measures. He was also reported to have said, "Often, tourists who come in make their own arrangements and use their own operators. By right they should be made to work with local operators." Today, most tourists including those from China, are free independent travellers (FITs) and do not travel in groups, using public transport instead of tour buses. FITs may not benefit tour operators but they bring in most of the tourism receipts for our country. Our hoteliers, restaurateurs, entertainment centres including theme parks and retailers would gladly testify. The number of visitors to Malaysia last year was only 26.5 million, four million short of the targeted 30.5 million. Under the Malaysian Tourism Transformation Plan (MTTP), we are targeting 36 million visitors and RM136 billion tourism receipts by 2020.

Speaking at the event, Seat boss Luca de Meo said: “I remember people discussing whether it made sense for us to be in a place like this. “I personally had the experience of Audi of going to CES [the Consumer Electronics Show], it wasnt my idea but we did it properly and CES is now very much contaminated by automotive. “The reaction of the people [at MWC] shows the brand fits perfectly.” Seat’s head of connectivity, Leyre Olavarria, also played up the relevance of being at a technology show. “MWC is so important to us,” she said. “Not just because it’s in Barcelona [Seat's home], but because if we want to be frontrunners in connectivity then this is the perfect playground to showcase our technology.” Young, tech-hungry consumers will expect more and more cutting edge technology from their cars, and manufacturers will be desperate to show themselves as innovative technology companies to that demographic.

However, if you dont take the time to understand what is and isnt working, all your execution efforts will be for nothing. Tip: Use Google Analytics or your preferred analytics tool to uncover how much referral traffic each social platform is sending to your website, top pages, time on page and average number of pages visited, and conversions. This will lend more context to the traffic you’re receiving and help you draw conclusions about whether or not your efforts are driving the results you’re looking for. In addition, use the analytics and insights available on each platform to get more insights into the type of content that is resonating with your audience, as well as how they are actually engaging with that content. #13 Not testing new tactics and ideas. The truth is, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to achieving social media marketing success.

Will Beaumont 27 Feb 2017 A driverless electric race car hardly fits with evo ’s mantra ‘The thrill of driving’, but we certainly wouldnt disagree with the statement that racing improves the breed. It’s the latter statement that Roborace, the maker of the world’s first driverless race car, is following to help develop the future of automous driving. Roborace has revealed its new car, the Robocar at this year’s Mobile World Congress. The new car will race against other autonomous Robocars in a series that has been created as a platform for software engineers and suppliers to develop software, technology and materials that will filter down into driverless road cars. Image 2 of 7 Image 2 of 7 The car itself, designed by Daniel Simon who has previously designed futuristic looking cars for sci-fi films like Tron Legacy and Oblivion, is 4.8 metres long, 2 metres wide and weighs 975kg.

To maximize this minuscule space, we sought inspiration in teeny-tiny bedrooms that are big on storage, personality and charm. When you realize that your "one bedroom" is really a converted closet, take a deep breath—there's big potential hidden in here. READ MORE »

Parents in Liverpool, UK, are being prepared to spot the signs that their children might be hackers. The Liverpool Echo reports on the launch of a Hackers To Heroes scheme targeting youngsters at risk of donning a black hat, and has an expert on hand, one [Vince Warrington], to come up with a handy cut-out-and-keep list . Because you never know when you're going to need one, and he's helped the Government so should know what he's talking about. Of course, they're talking about Hacker (cybercriminal) while for us the word has much more positive connotations . And it's yet another piece of ill-informed media scaremongering about technology that probably fits like so many others in the People are having fun. Something Must Be Done About It! category. But it's still something that will probably result in hassle for a few youngsters with an interest in technology, and that's not encouraging.

0 GPM . I've had the handheld type for several years and thought I'd try the rain type since people seem to love them. The Modern Aero line was so minimal and clean that it was the perfect choice. This fixture has Aero-Jettechnology that adds air to each drop of water it puts out while not using so much water meaning, it will save water while still getting my shampoo and conditioner out of my hair quickly. 4. Finishes Go with the trend or stay classic? There are many details to consider when selecting finishes: Timelessness Do you want to create a bathroom which fits the trends and can easily be updated later or a classic look that will fit the style at any point in time? Some of the fixtures may need replacing after only 10 years. Therefore, I recommend going with the finish you love for the smaller fixtures such as the faucet and shower head, even if it does happen to be a passing trend.
