IDG Enterprise is closing the U.S. print editions of Computerworld and CSO. The group, which also publishes InfoWorld, CIO and Network World, among others, plans to keep the brands on a digital and event-centric publishing model.June CSO and the June 23rd Computerworld, a biweekly, will be the final print issues. CSO has a circulation of 27,000 and Computerworld is 165,000.The digital audiences are comparably larger—Computerworld averages 2.9 million uniques and CSO averages 228,000. As it stands, the brands’ current model is a mix of sponsor and ad revenue along with events, marketing services and data programs, says IDG Enterprise CEO Matthew Yorke. “Readers can get access to additional premium content by registering for a free Insider membership,” he says. “We are developing new models, which incorporate sponsor/ad revenues as well as a paid model for exclusive content and resources (in addition to the premium content that anyone will be able to access. The entire site will not require a paid subscription).According to Yorke, there will be no staff reductions related to the change. “Resources will be re-allocated to the premium Insider content and that strategy.”IDG, and other tech-oriented publishers, have been pursuing this model for years now, gradually shutting down print magazines and transitioning the brands to digital and live event models, while simultaneously building out their marketing services groups. IDG Enterprise’s InfoWorld transitioned to a digital-only model in 2007. More recently, Network World followed that same path. PC World, which isn’t part of the IDG Enterprise division, also went digital-only in 2013.Yorke remarked at the recent Folio: Growth Summit that the company manages print for profit—and if there is none, then it’s either treated as a marketing expense or transitioned out of the model. CIO is the only other IDG Enterprise brand that still has a print component.

BNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed. Prothom Alo File PhotoBNP standing committee member Moudud Ahmed alleged that policemen barred him from leaving his house in Manikpur village of Companiganj upazila in Noakhali district to exchange greeting with supporters on the Eid day, Saturday.Police, however, denied the allegation citing ‘the blockade was for security reasons’, reports UNB.The Bangladesh Nationalist Party standing committee member Moudud told newsmen that it has been proved that this government has become isolated from people and also being feared to face mass people.”So, policemen were deployed in front of my house in the morning and they barred me from coming out of my home,” he added.”I asked police to arrest me if I did anything wrong or let me go out, but they were firm about not allowing me to go outside,” said the senior BNP leader.Moudud said he spoke to Companiganj police station officer-in-charge and superintendent of police in Noakhali Md Ilias Sharif. Both denied him permission to go out, he added.When contacted, Md Ilias Sharif said, “Moudud Ahmed is a senior political leader. We deployed police in front of his house considering his security.”Rabiul Islam, sub-inspector (investigation) of Companiganj police station, who was on duty in front of Moudud’s house, said police were deployed following an intelligence report that he might face problems if he went out of home just before evening.
.Police recovered the bodies of two unidentified young men from separate places of Keraniganj, Dhaka on Monday afternoon.Khorshed Alam, sub-inspector of South Keraniganj police station, said they recovered a body from Char Kaliganj area and the other from the Buriganga river in the same area.The bodies of the youths, aged around 30-35, were sent to Sir Salimullah Medical College Hospital in the capital for autopsy, he said.
Randi Weingarten tries to deliver a teddy bear and other items for children to federal agents at the port-of-entry, Tuesday on 26 June 2018, in Fabens, Texas, along the international border where immigrant children are being held. The group tried to deliver items to the children housed in tents at the facility but were turned away. Photo: APA judge in California on Tuesday ordered US border authorities to reunite separated families within 30 days, setting a hard deadline in a process that has so far yielded uncertainty about when children might again see their parents.If children are younger than 5, they must be reunified within 14 days of the order issued Tuesday by US district judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego. Sabraw, an appointee of President George W. Bush, also issued a nationwide injunction on future family separations, unless the parent is deemed unfit or doesn’t want to be with the child. He also requires the government provide phone contact between parents and their children within 10 days.More than 2,000 children have been separated from their parents in recent weeks and placed in government-contracted shelters – hundreds of miles away, in some cases – under a now-abandoned policy toward families caught illegally entering the USAmid an international outcry, Trump last week issued an executive order to stop the separation of families and said parents and children will instead be detained together. A Department of Homeland Security statement over the weekend on reuniting families only seemed to sow more confusion.”The facts set forth before the Court portray reactive governance_responses to address a chaotic circumstance of the Government’s own making,” Sabraw wrote. “They belie measured and ordered governance, which is central to the concept of due process enshrined in our Constitution.”The ruling was a win for the American Civil Liberties Union, which filed the lawsuit in March involving a 7-year-old girl who was separated from her Congolese mother and a 14-year-old boy who was separated from his Brazilian mother.”Tears will be flowing in detention centers across the country when the families learn they will be reunited,” said ACLU attorney Lee Gelernt.The Justice and Homeland Security Departments did not immediately respond to requests for comment late Tuesday.It’s not clear how border authorities will meet the deadline. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told Congress on Tuesday that his department still has custody of 2,047 immigrant children separated from their parents at the border. That is only six fewer children than the number in HHS custody as of last Wednesday. Democratic senators said that wasn’t nearly enough progress.Under questioning, Azar refused to be pinned down on how long it will take to reunite families. He said his department does extensive vetting of parents to make sure they are not traffickers masquerading as parents.Also challenging will be the requirement the judge set on phone contact.At a Texas detention facility, immigrant advocates complained that parents have gotten busy signals or no answers from a 1-800 number provided by federal authorities to get information about their children.Attorneys have spoken to about 200 immigrants at the Port Isabel detention facility near Los Fresnos, Texas, since last week, and only a few knew where their children were being held, said Simon Sandoval-Moshenberg of the Legal Aid Justice Center in Virginia.”The US government never had any plan to reunite these families that were separated,” Sandoval-Moshenberg said, and now it is “scrambling to undo this terrible thing that they have done.”A message left for HHS, which runs the hotline, was not immediately returned.Many children in shelters in southern Texas have not had contact with their parents, though some have reported being allowed to speak with them in recent days, said Meghan Johnson Perez, director of the Children’s Project for the South Texas Pro Bono Asylum Representation Project, which provides free legal services to minors.”Things might be changing now. The agencies are trying to coordinate better,” she said. “But the kids we have been seeing have not been in contact with the parents. They don’t know where the parent is. They’re just distraught. Their urgent need is just trying to figure out, ‘Where is my parent?'”The decision comes as 17 states, including New York and California, sued the Trump administration Tuesday to force it to reunite children and parents. The states, all led by Democratic attorneys general, joined Washington, DC, in filing the lawsuit in federal court in Seattle, arguing that they are being forced to shoulder increased child welfare, education and social services costs. The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for a comment on the multistate lawsuit.”The administration’s practice of separating families is cruel, plain and simple,” New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said in a statement. “Every day, it seems like the administration is issuing new, contradictory policies and relying on new, contradictory justifications. But we can’t forget: The lives of real people hang in the balance.”In a speech before the conservative Criminal Justice Legal Foundation in Los Angeles, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended the administration for taking a hardline stand on illegal immigration and said the voters elected President Donald Trump to do just that.”This is the Trump era,” he said. “We are enforcing our laws again. We know whose side we are on – so does this group – and we’re on the side of police, and we’re on the side of the public safety of the American people.”After expressing reluctance in May to get too deeply involved in immigration enforcement decisions, the judge who issued Tuesday’s ruling was clearly influenced by Trump’s reversal last week and the Homeland Security Department’s statement on its family reunification plan Saturday night, which, he said, left many questions unanswered.”This situation has reached a crisis level. The news media is saturated with stories of immigrant families being separated at the border. People are protesting. Elected officials are weighing in. Congress is threatening action,” he wrote.Outraged by the family separations, immigrant supporters have led protests in recent days in states such as Florida and Texas. In Los Angeles, police arrested 25 demonstrators at rally Tuesday ahead of Sessions’ address.Outside the U.S. attorney’s office, protesters carried signs reading, “Free the children!” and “Stop caging families.” Clergy members blocked the street by forming a human chain. Police handcuffed them and led them away.Later, protesters gathered outside the hotel where Sessions gave his speech. As the attorney general’s motorcade arrived, the crowd chanted, “Nazi, go home.”Weissert reported from Harlingen, Texas. Associated Press writers Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar in Washington; Gene Johnson in Seattle; Robin McDowell in Austin, Texas; Amy Taxin in Santa Ana, California; and John Antczak in Los Angeles contributed to this report.
Tuition for Maryland’s colleges would be held to three percent during the coming four years if Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown is elected governor, the leading Black candidate in the June primary election pledged March 12.Under what the Brown campaign is calling the Keeping College Affordable Plan, the tuition increase cap launched under Gov. Martin O’Malley and Brown in 2007 would be continued in a Brown administration. The 3.3 percent cap on annual tuition increases at the state’s public colleges and universities makes Maryland’s tuition growth rate the second lowest in the nation.“As part of our campaign to build a better Maryland for more Marylanders, we make our children a promise: that if they work hard and do well in school, there’s nothing they can’t achieve,” Brown, who is campaigning to be the Democratic Party’s gubernatorial nominee, said in a statement. “We’ve made great progress over the last seven years toward the goal of ensuring every Maryland student has access to an affordable, high-quality college education, but we can do better.”The tuition cap pledge is the 11th policy proposal issued by Brown and running mate Ken Ulman, Howard County executive. Brown said, “that’s why Ken Ulman and I will cap college tuition growth at no more than 3% annually over the next four years — so we can extend ladders of opportunity to every Marylander, regardless of background or means.” Ulman said during the news conference, “Anthony Brown has led the way as Maryland has maintained the lowest tuition growth rate in the nation, including a four-year freeze in tuition cost hikes.”The June 24 primary pits Brown and Ulman against five other sets of candidates for the party’s nominaton: Attorney General Doug Gansler and Del. Jolene Ivey, Ralph and Feda Jaffe, Del. Heather Mizeur and Delmon Coates, Charles U. Smith and Clarence Tucker and Cindy A. Walsh and Mary Elizbeth Wingate-Pennacchia.
More information: One-pot room-temperature conversion of cyclohexane to adipic acid by ozone and UV light, Science 19 December 2014: Vol. 346 no. 6216 pp. 1495-1498. DOI: 10.1126/science.1259684ABSTRACTNitric acid oxidation of cyclohexane accounts for ~95% of the worldwide adipic acid production and is also responsible for ~5 to 8% of the annual worldwide anthropogenic emission of the ozone-depleting greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N2O). Here we report a N2O-free process for adipic acid synthesis. Treatment of neat cyclohexane, cyclohexanol, or cyclohexanone with ozone at room temperature and 1 atmosphere of pressure affords adipic acid as a solid precipitate. Addition of acidic water or exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light irradiation (or a combination of both) dramatically enhances the oxidative conversion of cyclohexane to adipic acid. An efficient catalytic process converts sugary biomass into a renewable feedstock for polymer production Explore further To make nylon, popularly used in panty hose, rope and a huge variety of other products, manufacturers first make adipic acid by mixing nitric acid with hexagon-shaped carbon molecules (cyclohexane) and other ingredients such as cobalt, copper, manganese, vanadate salts, and highly pressured oxygen. In addition to adipic acid, the process gives off nitrous oxide which is allowed to escape into the atmosphere where it harms the planet’s ozone layer (it’s also considered a greenhouse gas). So popular is nylon, and adipic acid (95 percent of it that’s made is used to make nylon), that prior research has found that up to eight percent of the eight million metric tons of nitrous oxide released into the atmosphere each year, is the result of making adipic acid for nylon production. In this new effort, the pair of researchers describe a process they developed for creating adipic acid that doesn’t release any nitrous oxide at all—it’s also simpler and costs less.Instead of adding nitric acid to cyclohexane (or cyclohexanol, or cyclohexanone) the two added ozone bubbles and ultraviolet light. The UV light caused the ozone to break down to O2 releasing single highly reactive oxygen atoms. Those atoms attached themselves to the carbon molecules weakening their bonds and eventually causing the hexagon rings to break, which resulted in the formation of adipic acid. They note that the process doesn’t require high pressure or any other new ingredients.Excited by their discovery, the two researchers tried the same method on other, larger hydrocarbons—no report on what they found, but they imply that the possibilities are tantalizing, which suggests other researchers might be looking to do the same very soon—that could conceivably lead to the development of ways to create other common materials that aren’t so harmful to the planet.
