Otherwise, bring along your gaming headset . Equipped with an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor and Nvidia GTX 1060, the Aero 14 is a fully VR-capable machine; and, for the first time, you dont have to spend more than two grand to get it. Not only is this machine more affordable than both the Razer Blade and Alienware 13 R3 , it also out performs them in almost every benchmark. The Aero 14 earned a slightly higher Fire Strike score than the Alienware 13, and then several ticks greater than the Razer Blade. We saw an identical trend follow within The Division and GTA V benchmark tools, though, the Aero 14 only goes a frame or two per second faster. We can largely attribute the Aero 14s overall higher benchmark scores to its brand new quad-core Kaby Lake processor. This in turn also helped it secure a 54 to 84- point-higher Cinebench CPU score over its competitors.

- Gold's average gains in inauguration years of 15% since 1974 - First year of new President frequently a time of increased uncertainties and risks - Gold rose 30% in the 12 months after Obama inauguration Massive political uncertainty President's conflict with the CIA - Strong dollar policy' to end as U.S. has $120 trillion plus debt - Trump inherits Bush and Obama's humongous debt Gold performs well in inauguration years (see table) and has seen average gains of 15% in inaugural years since the 1970s. Given the degree of uncertainty, divisiveness and conflict that Trump's election has already created both in America and internationally, it seems almost certain that the many risks as President Trump takes power will lead to higher gold prices. Besides the myriad of risks today and arguable the most uncertain geo-political situation since World War II or the height of the Cold War, gold investors and buyers can look to Presidential history, as gold has recorded has average gains of 15% in inaugural years since 1974.

AWARD-WINNING rock star and composer Akim Ahmad is living proof that fatherhood brings out the best in a man. His wife, Stacy Anam, who is also a singer, is due to give birth to their first child in several weeks. “In the past, I spoke my mind without constraint,” confesses Akim, whose real name is Afiq Hakim Ahmad, in a recent interview. Since finding out that he is going to be a father, Akim has learned to hold his tongue, and gives a lot more thought to what he wants to say before ­opening his mouth. “I have also learned to be more ­patient,” says the 26-year-old. Akim is also known for his trademark dance moves ­onstage when he performs. Will fatherhood ­subdue this side of him as well? Apparently not. Akim assures his fans that nothing will tone down that part of his personality. “I will always be a rock singer,” he says. “Nothing will change that.

Great for social mobility if you're in a grammar school. If you worry when at 11 it does well for you. The thing that is fundamentally unfair, and we can't argue us that, if you don't pass the exam and get into a grammar school at 11, you go to a school that performs more poorly. That can't be fair.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir performs, and then Donald Trump takes the presidential oath of office, administered by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts. Trump will give his inaugural address, followed by more readings and a benediction and close with the national anthem. The complete program is here . What should we expect for Trump’s inauguration speech? Donald Trump tapped Stephen Miller to pen his much-anticipated speech. Miller frequently served as the warm-up act on the campaign trail for Trump. Early discussions of the speech focused on structural problems within the country and setting an agenda for Trump’s first 100 days and beyond. What about the parade? The inaugural committee announced the parade lineup in late December, which includes high school bands, police troops and civic groups found across the country. The statement also said that all branches of the military will be represented.

" To ensure buyers aren't just ordering cars without realising the implications, they'll have to pay a £250 refundable reservation fee at the final stage when finance documents are sent out. Once these are signed, customers are then protected by the 14-day cooling off period. Baird added: "There's a big opportunity to connect dealers and take away the barrier between what is there data and our data for the benefit of the customer." Peugeot is also currently seeing how sister brand DS fares with its customer experience store in Westfield London, as it plans how the future of its own buying process and whether it'll follow suit with high street stores as opposed to out of town forecourts. Baird added: "We're waiting with baited breath to see how DS performs. Peugeot and Citroen are looking to see how it works." Joe Finnerty

Case in point? Long-form content is where it’s at – in 2016 and beyond. How to Make Long-Form Content as Valuable as Possible: X Tips One of the reasons that long-form content tends to rank so well is that it does a better job of providing quality indicators for searching engines, which helps bump it up in Google's SERPs. But how can you make long-form content even stronger? Here are some tips: 1. Add images to your long-form content Long-form content performs very well, but 10,000 words is a lot, and adding images can help break it up and make it more compelling to readers. According to Buzzsumo’s 2014 report, content containing at least one image earns twice as many Facebook shares than content without any images. Check out the visual below: Courtesy of: OkDork.com With this in mind, insert images throughout your long-form content. It will help make it more interesting for readers and will provide to underscore the critical elements of your posts.

Verdict RealVNC: 3/5 Remmina: 4/5 TigerVNC: 4/5 TightVNC: 4/5 Vinagre: 2/5 Rating applications with very similar features and capabilities is never an easy task. In such a case instead of picking up an outright winner, we try to work our way to the top by the process of elimination. TightVNC is the first to rule itself out as the Java-based client feels out of place on the Linux desktop even more so as its corresponding server is available for Windows only. Next up are Remmina and Vinagre which are very similar in that they both offer support for multiple protocols besides VNC and dont pledge allegiance to a particular server. Vinagre just gets the job done without much ado and performs surprisingly well. However, the client doesnt offer the same flexibility as the others during an active session which is a downer. Similarly, Remmina scores decently in the performance department and gives you the flexibility to change the quality settings of the connection on the fly.

Building a supervised model that performs better than just assigning the most frequent sense of a word without considering the surrounding text is difficult, but supervised models can perform well when supplied with significant amounts of training data. ( Navigli, 2009 ) By releasing this dataset, it is our hope that the research community will be able to further the advance of algorithms that allow machines to understand language better, allowing applications such as: Facilitating the automatic construction of databases from text in order to answer questions and connect knowledge in documents. For example, understanding that a “hemi engine ” is a kind of automotive machinery, and a “locomotive engine ” is a kind of train, or that “Kanye West is a starimplies that he is a celebrity, but “Sirius is a starimplies that it is an astronomical object.
