first_imgUnder pressure from allies in the government over a year after de-classifying the coconut palm as a tree during its earlier stint, the BJP-led coalition Cabinet here on Wednesday passed an amendment restoring the coconut palm in the list of trees and also according it the status of State tree. “The State government has decided to include coconut palm as tree in the Goa, Daman and Diu (Preservation of ) Trees Act, 1984 to regulate felling of coconut trees under this Act,” the Cabinet note on Wednesday stated. The State Cabinet which met here on Wednesday also resolved to declare the coconut tree as the “State tree”. Agriculture Minister Vijai Sardesai of the Goa Forward Party, who had taken the initiative in this regard said the new amendment would be ratified in the State Legislative assembly during the ongoing monsoon session. “We have restored tree status to the coconut (palm),” Mr. Sardesai said. The Opposition as well as civil society had questioned the previous BJP-led coalition government for amending the Goa Daman and Diu (Preservation of )Trees act 1984 in 2016 to drop the tree status accorded to the coconut tree. Opponents of the government, which then included Goa Forward Party led by Mr. Sardesai, had accused the government of unfairly hastening real estate and industrial development at the cost of environment by selectively allowing mass removal of coconut plantations.last_img read more

first_imgMumbai, Feb 17 (PTI) The Bombay High Court today sought response of the Maharashtra government and BJP leader Ashish Shelar on a contempt petition filed against him for failing to comply with its earlier directions on precautions to be taken during the Dahi Handi festival.A division bench of justices V M Kanade and Revati Mohite Dere was hearing a petition filed by Swati Patil seeking contempt action to be initiated against Principal Secretary of Home department Swadheen Kshatriya and Ashish Shelar, head of the Dahi Handi Samiti set up by the government in February last year.The samiti was set up by the government following directions from the high court on precautions and restrictions during the Dahi Handi festival.The high court, among other directions, had asked the government to ensure that Dahi Handi (formation) is restricted to only four layers and the height is reduced.In her petition, Patil claimed that the high court directions were flouted by several pandals across the state and the samiti and its members failed in complying with the court orders.The bench, while seeking response of the government and Shelar, said, “Adults can take part in any sport as they have the right to do so. But children are involved here and hence we have to keep their interest in mind.””Our orders should be taken in the right spirit. Our intentions are not to be a spoil sport. Organisers should be responsible,” the court said while adjourning the petition for four weeks. PTI SP GK ZMN BASadvertisementlast_img read more

first_imgHello and welcome to our live coverage of the only T20 between West Indies and India at Kingston. (SCORECARD)Evin Lewis didget company in Gayle and Samuels who looked standby’s throughout thechase. None of the Indian bowler’s could trouble them. Kuldeep Yadav got a wicket but he went for plenty as well. The hosts will look to putthis defeat to bed as they head to their next conquest in Sri Lanka. The hostsbowled their heart out but it was Evin Lewis who had different plansaltogether. Outscoring Gayle is difficult they say but this lad did that in some style. He got a couple of reprieves but except that it was just some sensational power hitting. Evin went onto score the highest scoreby any batsmen in a T20I during a chase which just speaks volume of hisbatting. West Indieshave totally decimated the hosts and bantered the 190-run target in some style. After opting to bowl first, they were highly confident ofchasing the target down and just proved that. India batted well andposted a more than competitive total on the board thanks to somefantastic batting by their openers and Karthik. But when they steppedout to ball, things changed completely.West Indies Innings 00.30 IST: Jadeja to Lewis SIX! Lewis has won it in the fashion it deserves.

I call heads five times and lost; today I call tails and still lost. Windies are the World Champs for a reason. When we end up thinking too much, we end up compromising too much in a T20 game. It’s difficult to switch (players) for just one game. The guys have played in IPL, so have a lot of exposure. It’s important to have the same bunch of guys and have them perform. The guys have the skillset to do it.: Virat Kohli at the toss. 20.34 IST: West Indies win toss, opt to bowl.Brief Preview:Riding high after clinching the One-Day International (ODI) series, the Indian team will look to repeat their performance against West Indies in the one-off Twenty20 International (T20I) at Sabina Park.The visitors have retained the same squad which won them the ODI series 3-1 while the Carlos Brathwaite-led West Indies have made significant changes for the match.It will be a slightly more difficult task for the Men in Blue to outplay the hosts like they did in the ODI series because the West Indies T20 team seems to be a more balanced side as compared to the ODI squad.West Indies will rely heavily on their swashbuckling batsman Chris Gayle who has joined the T20 squad to provide them a good start against a decent Indian bowling line-up.Brathwaite, all-rounder Kieron Pollard and Marlon Samuels are the other important inclusions for the side in the batting department, who will look to go hard at the Indian bowlers.The bowling department under the likes of experienced pacer Jerome Taylor and spinning duo Samuel Badree and Sunil Narine will look to put the brakes on the formidable Indian batting line-up.On the other hand, the Indian batting line with the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh will look to help their side put up a big total keeping in mind the visitors strength in batting.Kohli may also make some changes in the playing XI with the kind of depth India has got in their squad.India’s bowling department will be duly tested with the hard-hitting West Indian batsmen on show for West Indies in the shorter format.last_img read more

first_imgSpain striker Alvaro Morata said on Sunday he has passed a medical with Atletico Madrid, with his loan move to the La Liga side from Chelsea expected to be confirmed imminently.”Everything went well, thank God,” Morata told reporters as he left the Clinica Universidad de Navarra medical centre in Madrid, having flown to the Spanish capital from London on Saturday.Morata, who passed through Atletico’s youth academy before switching to local rivals Real Madrid, is to sign an 18-month loan deal Spanish media reports said, with an option to sign him permanently at the end of the season.Morata, who also spent two years at Juventus, joined Chelsea from Real Madrid in 2017 for a reported 80 million euros ($91.30 million).Despite a promising start to his career in the Premier League, with 10 goals in his first five months, Morata has had a disappointing year with the London club, starting fewer than half their league games under coach Maurizio Sarri.”I’m very happy, I’ve spent days waiting for this,” Morata added, also addressing his spell with Real, where he won one La Liga and two Champions League titles.”I began my career at Atletico and the people who know where I come from and know my history know what this means for me. The past is the past, and it cannot be changed, and I’m very proud of it. I am looking forward to everything being completed so I can start training with my team mates.”Morata joins an Atletico side who are second in La Liga and in the last 16 of the Champions League but have struggled to find a suitable strike partner for talismanic forward Antoine Griezmann.advertisementCroatian striker Nikola Kalinic has struggled for form since joining last year, making only two league starts and scoring twice.Diego Costa, meanwhile, has had an unhappy return to Atletico since rejoining the club from Chelsea, scoring one league goal this season, and is currently recovering from foot surgery.

The grand beige-hued centre of town has been sandblasted by a two-year facelift project, leaving a spotless face to greet the World Cup’s half a million visitors. On Wednesday night travelling fans could already be seen singing in the central squares as Moscow submitted to World Cup fever like a sombre great-uncle dancing at a wedding.What happens next – if we can, finally, speak of the football – is equally fascinating. Among the favourites to win the World Cup, Brazil and Germany look strong and settled, and Spain strong and unsettled after the outlandish decision to sack their manager Julen Lopetegui on Wednesday morning, punishment for his acceptance of the Real Madrid job after the tournament.France have the greatest depth of talent. Argentina look brittle in defence and dreamily strong in attack, with Messi always capable of simply lifting the tournament by the scruff of the neck and walking away with it.Neutrals will perhaps hope for some new faces in the late stages. Nigeria, Senegal and Egypt carry Africa’s middling hopes of a first semi-finalist. Serbia may spring a shock, while Belgium, most people’s hotly tipped over-underdogs, have a look of England 2006 about them, with dollops of elite talent, a slightly jarring strain of optimism and a manager with a nice suit. World Cup 2018: complete guide to all 736 players Share via Emailcenter_img Twitter It is one of football’s mysteries that no matter what its governing bodies throw at this great belching, burping circus, the spectacle at its heart somehow remains pure and impossibly more-ish. There will be the usual moments of beauty and outrage over the next 35 days and 64 matches. On Saturday afternoon Lionel Messi, the greatest footballer of the modern age, will take on an Iceland team managed by a part-time dentist.On Monday the odd-job street footballers of Panama will kick off their first ever World Cup, by the Black Sea. In Rostov the aristocrats of Brazil seek revenge for the humiliation of 2014 and for now the opening exchanges of any World Cup remain a four-yearly Christmas Day, an occasion that resonates with a deeply personal excitement.At which point, the world beyond must also come rushing in. Should Fifa’s simperingly insincere football family be here at all? When Russia’s players walk out to face Saudi Arabia on Thursday they will do so as emissaries of the world’s largest land mass, a nation with a long-standing football culture and with the will to put on a grand show.But still the question of Russia itself remains. There will be no shortage of pop-up Moscow expertise over the next few days, plenty of just-add-water holding forth on the exact scope and meaning of Putin’s sui generis superstate.This is not a criticism of attempts to put this spectacle in context, something everyone from Boris Johnson to Frankie Boyle (from whom this article has already stolen at least one Putin joke) has had a go at. The greatest hope is the next five weeks, as Fifa flags decked with platitudes about friendship and family and anti-racism are unfurled around the Luzhniki Stadium, is that football may still provide something unexpected, a connection in some enduringly distant corners. Sportblog Reuse this content Read more Welcome, once again, to the world. Eight years, $19bn and two terms in the glorious 100-year rule of Vladimir Putin in the making, the 2018 World Cup in Russia is upon us. This has been a fittingly Soviet-scale construction project, taking in eight new superstadiums, thousands of miles of new roads and 53,000 civilian volunteers trained in the arts of pointing, waving and – toughest and most Russian of all – smiling at strangers.As ever the greatest show on earth carries its own irresistible heat before the tournament opener on Thursday afternoon. The World Cup may be compromised by greed and murkiness. Fifa may have become a kind of floating corporate city state, orbiting the globe, planting its great clanking tentacles down among the ripest pastures. But as preparations thrummed up through the gears in Moscow on Wednesday there was a familiar sense of clarity, of that background hum beginning to die away. Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Moscow has submitted to World Cup fever, like a sombre great-uncle dancing at a wedding Share on LinkedIn Ah yes. England. For once football’s most quietly tortured nation will enter a World Cup with the burden of expectation close to zero. This has brought its own unexpected positivity. With an admirable manager in Gareth Southgate and some fit, likeable young players there has even been a cautious bubbling of optimism around the squad as they set about their drills in sleepy Repino.In the past England have relied on individuals, on the notion a single burst of running power from some celebrity A-lister may be enough to roar the world into submission. This time they have a grooved system and a team of willing workers. A lack of outstanding players will do for them at some stage. But Southgate deserves credit for the way the tone has been set, for his backing of Raheem Sterling in the face of nonsensical assaults on his character and for the fraternal support offered to Danny Rose over his struggles with depression.And so on with the show. It is an odd side note to Russia 2018 that Putin wanted this World Cup for reasons that now seem a little distant. Ten years ago Russia was keen to engage with the world on positive terms, to signify its coming out as a global player. The temperature has dropped since, to the extent it is debatable Russia would bother bidding now. Share on Messenger Share on WhatsApp Sign up for the Fiver’s World Cup edition.last_img read more

Sam Lee 20:00 2/26/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Vincent Kompany Manchester City Adrian Dennis Manchester City Guardiola Yaya Touré İ. Gündoğan Kevin De Bruyne Raheem Sterling Leroy Sané Sergio Agüero Premier League The Belgian will feel he can go on forever after his Carabao Cup final heroics, but he will have other options to consider come the end of the season Vincent Kompany lifted the Carabao Cup on Sunday and he will surely lift the Premier League title in May, too.The Belgian still has 18 months left on his Manchester City contract and he insisted recently that he intends to see it out.“Should I listen to people who say that I’d retire?” he asked, rhetorically, at the start of February. “I still have a contract for 18 months and I feel that I can contribute something to the team.” Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player He went on to say that he is motivated to stay part of Pep Guardiola’s talented squad and that mentally, he can put his injury problems behind him once fit again.But he did make one admission: “On the other hand, I also have to be honest with myself. If I cannot cope with the level anymore, I will say: ‘Boys, it’s been enough, I’ll retire.’”I don’t want to push myself into the role of a victim. There are more important things than Vincent Kompany’s injuries. The man in the street realises that too.“I love football. My passion for the sport knows no limits. I have sacrificed a lot to get to this level. If I have to go through all these injuries again to lift a few more trophies, so be it.”He showed his passion while celebrating his goal at Wembley on Sunday, and his man-of-the-match performance proved that he is not merely a cheerleader at City these days.Yet he has given thought to his life after football and there is a chance that he will bring his playing days to a close at the end of the season.Goal understands that City’s plans for next season include signing another centre-back, albeit of a lower profile than John Stones and Aymeric Laporte.Despite the fact Guardiola chose the Belgian ahead of both young defenders for the Carabao Cup final, the long-term problem, of course, is that he cannot be relied upon to go through a season without picking up a serious injury or several lesser knocks.Nicolas Otamendi Vincent Kompany Man CityVincent Kompany Manchester CityIf Kompany accepts an even more bit-part role in the squad next season, including potentially being left out of the Champions League list, he could remain as a fifth-choice centre-back, akin to the role youngster Tosin Adarabioyo has played this season.But another option is that he could be moved to a different role inside the club.Craig Bellamy, the former City striker, is a close friend of Kompany and, speaking on Sky Sports’ ‘The Debate Live’ recently, the Welshman was careful with his words.”I don’t want to give too much away but I speak to Vinny quite a lot,” he said. “Vinny just … basically he must follow Guardiola around with a book because he notes down everything, every training exercise, you name it, he’s following him all the time.”Kompany quoteWas Bellamy careful not to give the game away that Kompany could take up a role on Guardiola’s coaching staff, or at least the staff of another City Football Group team?That would be one way to keep Kompany at the club, although his options are not limited to coaching.In December it was announced that he has earned a Masters of Business Administration degree, and Goal understands that City decision-makers have discussed how he could be mentored by existing members of staff with a view to taking up a role in the club’s finance department.”When you’re playing football at the top levels, even managing your personal finances starts to become like running a business,” he said. “It was important to me that I understood what my accountant was talking about and that I could confidently assess a business plan to take ownership of this area of my life.”Following his Wembley heroics Kompany will no doubt fancy his chances of prolonging his playing career at least until his contract expires in 2019, but if he does decide to call it quits, or if he is forced to, it seems he has plenty of options.last_img read more

Dr. Horace Chang, says education and training are key to Jamaica’s attainment of sustainable growth.  Noting that there was no substitute for a good education, Dr. Chang said he was encouraged by the growing number of students pursuing tertiary education. Story Highlights Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Hon. Dr. Horace Chang, says education and training are key to Jamaica’s attainment of sustainable growth.He argues that while the Government will “do all that is required” to spur greater economic growth, this will not be optimally realized “unless we (continue to) educate and train our people.”The Minister was delivering the keynote address at an awards ceremony hosted by the University of the West Indies (UWI) Western Campus in Montego Bay on August 24.Noting that there was no substitute for a good education, Dr. Chang said he was encouraged by the growing number of students pursuing tertiary education.The Minister said he was particularly impressed that a significant number of students from communities deemed marginalized in North West St. James, for which he is the Member of Parliament, were embarking on this endeavor. He presented several of them with bursaries during the ceremony.Dr. Chang said the bursaries, funded through provisions from his Constituency Development Fund, were intended to assist students “who have done well and need some assistance to move on to tertiary institutions.”He said the assistance was extended because “I know how challenging it can be…because of economic (constraints and other factors) to get a college education.”Dr. Chang said he was convinced that if given the opportunities, “students from these communities can rise to the occasion and (play) their part in making (Jamaica) a better nation.”For his part, Jason Bowen, a native of St. James and past beneficiary of the bursary assistance programme, expressed gratitude for the intervention which he said helped him to complete his medical studies at the UWI.“I have to give thanks (because) I really don’t know what would have happened had I not gotten this level of assistance. All I can say to students (is), it doesn’t matter where you are from or what your circumstances are…you can do it,” he stated.last_img read more

Rabat – The Moroccan Secretary of State to the Ministry of Energy, Mines, and Sustainable Development, Nezha El Ouafi, released the annual national report on the cleanliness levels of Moroccan beaches, at a press conference in Rabat on June 24.The report reveals the results of tests at 451 coastal resorts, across 169 beaches throughout Morocco. It identifies whether they meet Moroccan standards of water quality, and compliance with norms set by the Ministry for Environment in relation to bacterial and fecal content in seawater.The report finds 98.3% of the resorts evaluated comply with water quality norms. The major beach destinations of Agadir, Imsouane, and Essaouira all meet the standards, as does the Ain Diab beach of Casablanca. The report identifies the cleanest beaches in the country, those with the international “Blue Flag” award. This year, the international Foundation of Environmental Education awarded the “Blue Flag” to 21 Moroccan beaches, including Sidi Ifni, Essaouira, Safi, Bouznika, and Skhirat, for cleanliness and sustainability.Read also: Nordic Embassies Organize Beach Clean-Up Operation in MoroccoAt the press conference, El Ouafi noted that the Blue Flag awards “represent the international recognition of the considerable efforts made by the stakeholders of Moroccan beaches.”The report also finds seven resorts in Morocco do not meet the standards for safe swimming. These resorts are located at the beaches of Oued Merzeg, 25km south of Casablanca, Ain Atiq beach, near Temara south of Rabat, and Jbila III near Assilah, in the north of Morocco.The beaches do not conform with norms due to water contamination or due to the high recorded number of swimmers in comparison to the toilet infrastructure in the area.The report recommends that Moroccan communes set up more sanitary infrastructure along all beaches, including toilet blocks, showers, and rubbish bins.The report is published annually by the Ministry for the Environment. As noted by El Ouafi at the press conference on Monday, the results are a tool to encourage citizens and stakeholders to continue with their efforts to improve seawater quality, through the installation of appropriate infrastructure along beaches. read more

The complaint said that money was laundered through shell companies and came from a US$40 million payout Tanner received from Valeant.The men are alleged to have used the proceeds to buy second homes, pay debts and make investments — and in one case, Davenport spent US$50,000 for the installation of a custom wine cellar, according to the complaint.Tanner’s lawyer Howard Shapiro declined to comment but has previously said his client was innocent and regularly communicated with his Valeant bosses about his efforts to grow the company.Davenport’s lawyer and Valeant could not immediately be reached for comment.Valeant was once Canada’s largest firm by market capitalization. But its reputation has taken a beating since its affiliation with Philidor, a Pennsylvania-based mail-order pharmacy that mainly distributed some of Valeant’s specialty drugs, was disclosed.The company cut its ties with Philidor in October of 2015 and three months later, Philidor ceased operations. read more

A statement from Mr. Guterres’ spokesman said the UN chief is closely following events in the country and is convinced the crisis cannot be solved through the imposition of unilateral measures, but requires a political solution based on dialogue and compromise. “At this critical time,” the Secretary-General urged the Venezuelan Government and the opposition to relaunch negotiations for the benefit of the country’s people, said the statement, adding that Mr. Guterres is strongly supporting the ongoing efforts of the international facilitators and regional actors who are seeking to contribute to this end. The Secretary-General and other top UN officials have been calling for calm amid the escalating political and economic crisis in Venezuela when mass street demonstrations began in the country in April. In the months that followed, clashes erupted between security forces and protestors opposing elections for the so-called Constituent Assembly. According to media reports, President Nicolás Maduro has since declared victory in elections for a Constituent Assembly convened by him. The new body could replace the current legislative body, the National Assembly. The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, today warned that since the wave of demonstrations began in April, there has been a clear pattern of excessive force used against protesters. “Several thousand people have been arbitrarily detained, many reportedly subjected to ill-treatment and even torture, while several hundred have been brought before military rather than civilian courts. And these patterns show no signs of abating,” said the High Commissioner in a statement from his spokesperson. AUDIO: After interviewing victims and witnesses of the violence in Venezuela, the UN human rights office says that the it “shows no signs of abating”. Witness accounts suggest that the National Guard, National Police and local police forces have systematically used disproportionate force to instil fear, crush dissent and prevent demonstrators from assembling with rare condemnation from Government authorities.  Without official data, estimates suggest that more than 5,051 people have been arbitrarily detained between 1 April and 31 July, when mass demonstrations, began with some 1,000 reportedly still detained. Several cases reviewed by the UN rights office revealed credible reports of cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment by security forces of detainees, some amounting to torture. Tactics included electric shocks, long periods of suspending detainees by their wrists, suffocation with gas and threats of killings. There were also sexual violence threats against detainees or their families.   “I call on all parties to work towards a solution to the rapidly worsening tensions in the country, to renounce the use of violence and to take steps towards meaningful political dialogue,” concluded Mr. Zeid. VIDEO: UN human rights office urges Venezuela’s national security forces to handling protests in line with international humanitarian law. Credit: UN News Responsibility for violations lies at ‘highest levels of Government’ – UN human rights chief In the absence of responses from the Venezuelan authorities to requests for access, the High Commissioner deployed a team of human rights officers to conduct remote monitoring of the situation in the country from 6 June to 31 July, including from Panama. The team conducted some 135 interviews, including with victims and their families, witnesses, first responders and the Attorney-General’s Office – and also received written information from the Ombudsperson’s Office. Witnesses told of security forces firing tear gas canisters at short range; buckshot marbles and nuts and bolts were also discharged as ammunition at anti-Government protestors without warning; and deadly force was used against demonstrators as well. “These violations have occurred amid the breakdown of the rule of law in Venezuela, with constant attacks by the Government against the National Assembly and the Attorney-General’s Office,” Mr. Zeid continued. “The responsibility for the human rights violations we are recording lies at the highest levels of Government.”  The team’s findings also indicate patterns of other rights violations, including violent house raids, torture and ill-treatment of detainees in connection with protests. read more

A rock with ooids  “Our research has highlighted yet another vital role that microbes play on Earth and in our lives.” Researchers Dr Bob Burne and Professor Murray Batchelor from the ANU with a microscope showing the details of an triassic period ooidCredit: Lannon Harley Republicans and anti-monarchists have long grumbled that Buckingham Palace is riddled with fossils from a bygone era.And now scientists have shown, that in one respect, it’s true.A new study led by the Australian National University (ANU) has found that the building  blocks used in the royal palace were made from microbes which lived up to 200 million years ago, in the Jurassic period, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.The material, known as oolitic limestone, is popular for building because it is lightweight but very strong.It is almost completely made up from tiny millimetre-sized sphere of carbonate called ooids.Previously scientists thought those ooids had formed from tiny bits of grit or sand rolling around on the sea-bed, collecting more layers, in what was known as ‘the snowball effect.’ Humans have used ootic limestone for building since ancient times and there are beds in the United Kingdom, which is why it is so popular in Britain.Jurassic oolite in England was also used to construct much of the City of Bath, the British Museum and St Paul’s Cathedral.Elsewhere, oolite from Indiana in the US was used to build parts of the Pentagon and the Empire State Building. Professor Murray Batchelor from ANU led an international  team of researchers on the study, which is published in Scientific Reports. A rock with ooids Credit: Lannon Harley Professor Batchelor said the research findings could help better understand the effects of past climate change.The reserach was published in the journal Scientific Reports. The team used computer modelling to run simulations of how the rock could have been created and found that only microbes could explain the size of the ooids, and their concentric internal banding, which looked like tree rings.“Our mathematical model explains the concentric accumulation of layers, and predicts a limiting size of ooids,” said Professor Batchelor from the Research School of Physics and Engineering and the Mathematical Sciences Institute at ANU.“We considered the problem theoretically using an approach inspired by a mathematical model developed in 1972 for the growth of some brain tumours.”  Rock featuring ooids uncovered in Germany Researchers Dr Bob Burne and Professor Murray Batchelor from the ANU with a microscope showing the details of an triassic period ooidlast_img read more

first_img Apple Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross. Here’s how to clean it Microsoft is jumping on the digital health bandwagon. Gety Images For the past couple years, tech companies like Apple, Google and even Facebook have been doing something seemingly against their interests: Encouraging us to stop using them. On Monday, Microsoft joined those companies by encouraging business people to be more mindful of their time too. The new features, built into the company’s Office 365 business productivity service for Windows PCs, Macs and mobile devices, tracks how people use their computers and then displays that information on a dashboard.For example, Microsoft’s software will soon start showing people how often they focused on a task and for how long. And it will also cheer them on if they successfully disconnected after work. You can even set goals for how often you have quiet days, Microsoft said. Read on ZDNet: Microsoft Build 2019: Azure is the star, and Windows is a bit player The new features, announced at the company’s Build developer conference in Seattle, are the latest in a growing trend of tech companies aiming to make us feel better about using their devices and services. They’re doing this by encouraging us to be more mindful about how much of our lives get taken up by technology in the first place. At Apple, this comes as part of a feature called Screen Time, which shows you how often you use your phone and what types of apps you’re using most. You can also set limits on how long you can use specific apps, like Facebook. Google’s Android software for phones and tablets has a tool called Digital Wellbeing that offers similar features. Even Facebook and Instagram, which are often derided as places people zone out and lose hours tapping and scrolling, have a screen time feature. For Microsoft, these features are part of a broader refinement to Microsoft’s Office 365 business software. The suite, which includes access to the company’s popular Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook apps, is used by 180 million people. Microsoft said the new features will be available “in the next few months.”  Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy?
