Enlarge / The iPad Pro, Smart Keyboard, and Apple Pencil. (credit: Andrew Cunningham) For some time now, the ever-churning Apple rumor mill has been telling us to expect some kind of hardware event in the spring. And as the spring draws nearer, reports about both the timing and the content of that spring event are going to get more accurate. The latest news to that end comes from the Japanese site Mac Otakara (via MacRumors ), one of the more reliable sources for early news about this sort of thing. Mac Otakara reports that Apple will be having a hardware event in March with the iPad acting as the star of the show. The tablet lineup is said to be getting a top-to-bottom refresh—there will reportedly be new tablets at the current 7.9, 9.7, and 12.9-inch screen sizes, as well as a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro that combines the approximate size of the 9.

Although Google Chromebooks have been a major enabler in this cloud revolution, the hardware is decreasingly important, and shouldnt be a hindrance to adoption. Where two-thirds of US schools use cloud-based IT services, in the UK it’s more like one-third. So there’s huge room for growth, but in the UK adoption has reached a point of critical mass. Schools are beginning to see the benefits of cloud technology to student literacy and numeracy levels. For this reason, the cloud is not merely a change in the structure of IT provision from on-premise to the cloud, but should be fully integrated into a shift in a school’s or college’s approach to education. Cloud technologies promise a new era in digitally enabled learning, with reduced costs and an ever-expanding array of new tools for education. With its pure focus on and expertise in delivering the cloud for education, C-Learning is in an ideal position to help schools and colleges realise that promise – a safe and secure cloud-learning service tailored specifically for their current needs, but with room to grow as these needs develop over time.

There is a painting on the curved wall lining the staircase. I found two different photos with two different paintings, and judging by the other elements in the photos it's the same staircase, so apparently he gets bored and swaps the paintings out every so often. But the theme remains the same: Both of these are images from Peter Jackson's popular "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. There aren't any publicly-available photos of the upper floors, so I'm afraid our tour ends here. But one thing I want to mention: *Some folks are angry that it is costing taxpayers $1 million per day to guard White House North, arguing that Trump's wife and child should live at the White House, relieving New York City of the financial burden. However, the Trumps have decided that their son should be allowed to finish the year at his current school. We can all criticize Trump for his policies and views, but we oughtn't question whatever decisions are made for the sake of his own family.

To get the new forks to fit without changing the geometry, the KZ1000 steering neck has been modified to accept the Honda triple trees. New progressive shocks hold up the rear end, linked to a modified rear frame—which now supports a discreet fender and a very elegant brown leather seat. Underneath the seat is a small lithium battery and a Motogadget m-Unit control box, which is wired up to bar-end turn lights and grips from the same company. The speedo is a GPS unit—which does not require a transmission sensor to operate, and locks on to GPS satellites within three seconds of powering up. Most older bikes require an engine upgrade to make modern-day power, but the KZ1000 is an exception. The DOHC, air-cooled inline four pumps out a very solid 90 horsepower. That’s about the same as Indian’s current 1100cc Scout, because the Kawasaki doesnt have modern emissions regulations to deal with.

Poor Daisy Ridley. While filming a remake of Murder on the Orient Express , she's been subjected to constant grilling from co-star Josh Gad about what secrets she knows about the new Star Wars films. SEE ALSO: Revealed: What really happened to Star Wars' most hated character After she refused to tell Gad if her character from the current Star Wars saga films, Rey, is a Jedi, Gad then enlisted screen legend Judi Dench to pester Ridley into dropping some hints. Which also failed. So, Gad has gone back to the well one more time, and now he's unloading the big guns. This time, he's enlisted a murderer's row of stars including Express co-stars Leslie Odom, Jr. (Aaron Burr from Hamilton' s original cast), Lucy Boynton ( Sing Street ), and Penelope Cruz. Oh, and there's also Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and two guys working on Star Wars Episode IX , Colin Trevorrow (the director) and Derek Connolly (the screenwriter). Read more...

In the coming months, the checks and balances of American democracy are going to be tested like never before – and will need to react quickly in the current climate. As Bannon told the New York Times about the first few weeks of the Trump administration: “We are moving big and we are moving fast… we didnt come here to do small things.

Spy shots show new Fiat Panda Cross model, though the changes look very minor 2017-02-20 16:10 The Fiat Panda has been around since 2012 in its current form, meaning it's high time for a facelifted version to arrive - and our spy photographers have caught the new model out winter testing in Sweden. This model is a four-wheel drive Fiat Panda Cross , with the distinctive scuff plate on the lower front bumper and prominent fog lights near the grille. The camouflage on this prototype car appears to be doing a very good job of obascuring the changes, as it appears very similar to the current model. The Fiat badge looks slightly bigger, but we expect to see new lights and perhaps a tweaked bumper design on the finished product. It's also possible that this car is simply testing a new engine variant that would join the existing 1.3-litre diesel, 1.2-litre and 0.

The MACC also identified 10 plots of land in the Klang Valley owned by the suspects family members. Investigators also learnt that the secretary-general was an avid investor of gold and foreign currency, regularly trading millions of ringgit and observing markets for both portfolios personally. The man who is a director of government-linked company had also taken a trip to the United States to play golf — a holiday which allegedly was borne by certain individuals with vested interest in the Datuk's powers in the award of multi-million ringgit government contracts. The secretary-general had assumed the post of a high-ranking state officer in 2010 before he was was appointed as secretary-general of the current ministry he is with in 2015.

Elevated levels of lead, a neurotoxin, were detected in children, and 12 people died in a Legionnaires' outbreak that has been linked to the improperly treated water. Flint's overall lead level no longer exceeds the federal limit but authorities still require residents to use faucet filters provided by the state. Michigan has allocated roughly $250 million toward resolving the disaster. Thirteen current or former government officials have been criminally charged in the crisis, including two emergency managers who were appointed by Gov. Rick Snyder to run Flint. The commission's report notes the local, state and federal action to help Flint that began in late 2015 but criticized the timing, noting that by that time residents had been reporting heavily discolored and bad tasting water for well over a year. Even after some tests showed there was a problem, decision makers questioned the tests, not the water, the report said.
