The associated shower and thunderstorm activity continues to show some signs of organization, but the system appears to lack a well-defined center at this time. Environmental conditions are conducive for some additional development before the system reaches the Lesser Antilles late Tuesday or early Wednesday. After that time, less favorable upper-level winds are expected to hinder additional development. Regardless of development, this system is expected to bring locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds to portions of the Lesser Antilles beginning late Tuesday. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the disturbance this afternoon.* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…50 percent.* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…50 percent.2. An area of disturbed weather is located about 800 miles west- southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. Some gradual development of this system is possible over the next few days while it moves slowly toward the west-northwest or northwest over the open Atlantic Ocean.* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…20 percent.* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.#magneticmedianews Recommended for you The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provo Related Items:#magneticmedianewslast_img read more

Star Wars Resistance Episode 16 The New Trooper creates First Order chaos

first_img 23 reasons Star Wars is better than Star Trek Commander Pyre is throwing his weight around on the Colossus. Lucasfilm Knocking out the bully leads to trouble… and opportunity.The 16th episode of CGI animated series Star Wars Resistance sees the First Order continuing its totalitarian tactics on the Colossus refueling platform.After lone Stormtrooper CS-515 (Steve Blum) gives fugitive children/First Order victims Eila (Nikki SooHoo) and Kel (Anthony Del Rio) a hard time, a brief tussle leaves him unconscious. The kids rush to Resistance spy Kazuda Xiono (aka Kaz, played by Christopher Sean) for help.Kaz ends up donning 515’s armor and takes the opportunity to learn more about the First Order’s plans for the platform.spoilers-starwarsThe First Order basically refuses to leaveCaptain Doza (Jason Hightower) confronts the First Order’s Commander Pyre (Liam McIntyre) about its continued presence on the platform after the escape of the pirate spy it came to find, but Pyre claims he intends to hunt down the spy’s accomplice and feigns deference to Doza’s authority (but later kicks him out of his own office).It’s pretty obvious that Doza doesn’t believe him… but when will he take action? The citizens of the Colossus are getting sick of the First Order too, as evidenced by their protest.Also, we got a tease about Doza’s time with the Empire — he tells Pyre that his decision to leave was a “personal choice.”zro-ff-002195Stealing a Stormtrooper’s armor… where have we seen that before? Lucasfilm It’s coming in full force… and now we know its planKaz manages to infiltrate Pyre’s briefing and before getting found out learns that a full garrison is on its way. He escapes after Pyre orders “a full mental wipe and reprogram,” which sounds pretty dark.He also discovers (via a stolen data rod) that the First Order is preparing its fleet for war — we must be getting very close to the events of The Force Awakens — and reasons that it plans to use the Colossus as a refueling point. Now playing: Watch this: Tags 5:26 23 Photos Kaz has some excellent comedic moments too. He tells janitor Opeepit, who’s scrubbing the floors by hand, that he’d have an easier time if he had a floor sweeper… even though he knows the First Order seized it from him (what a jerk!). He also has a fun confrontation with a First Order BB unit, and waves to an unknowing Torra Doza (Myrna Velasco) as he passes her room in full Stormtrooper armor.Star Wars Resistance airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney Channel VOD, and you can check out the official episode guide.. Sean also chatted about this episode on the excellent Ion Cannon podcast — give it a listen! TV and Movies Culturecenter_img Post a comment Share your voice Tam’s getting a new perspectiveTam Ryvora (Suzie McGrath), Kaz’s fellow mechanic, was happy enough to see the First Order making the platform safer, but hearing Eila and Kel’s tale about the militant group wiping out their family gives her pause. She may yet see the truth about the group, and it’s likely she’ll end up joining the Resistance.zro-ff-002203Opeepit the janitor has a thankless role, and Kaz makes it even harder. Lucasfilm Neeku’s coming into his ownOverly literal mechanic Neeku Vozo (Josh Brener) is pretty great this episode, knocking out 515 several times.”Well, I didn’t want him to kill us, Kaz!” he says after hitting the trooper with a wrench.He also agrees with Tam that the First makes him feel safer, “in a threatened by the military kind of way” — sounds like the sentiment of a future Resistance member.

Google acquires Diane Greenes Bebop makes her head of cloud business

first_imgGoogle has taken over enterprise development platform startup “Bebop” and made its founder Diane Greene the head of Google’s enterprise cloud business, CEO Sundar Pichai, announced in his blog post on Thursday, 19 November.Greene is no stranger to Google, being on the company’s Board of Directors for three years. She is also the founder and former CEO of VMWare.”Bebop is a new development platform that makes it easy to build and maintain enterprise applications. We think this will help many more businesses find great applications, and reap the benefits of cloud computing,” Pichai wrote.He said that over 60% of the Fortune 500 relies on Google cloud penetration. In fact, apart from their own businesses that operate on cloud infrastructure too, “Google has significantly larger data centre capacity than any other public cloud provider – part of what makes it possible for customers to receive the best price and performance for compute and storage services,” he wrote in the blog post.However, Pichai cautioned that as of now only a little fraction of the world’s data uses cloud penetration while majority of the businesses and applications aren’t cloud-based yet.”This is an important and fast-growing area for Google and we’re investing for the future,” he added.Regardless of being one of the first cloud companies that even made great advancement in gaining popularity among its consumers, Google has struggled to keep up with Microsoft, IBM and Amazon Web Services.To catch up, Google had tried to promote the work versions of its cloud services – Google Docs, Google Drive, Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Play, as well. However, earlier in July the company received a major blow when Google Apps customer General Electric (GE) chose Microsoft Office 365 over Google for its whopping 300,000 employees, TechCrunch reported.Greene will direct a new team looking after Google’s cloud businesses, including Google for Work, Cloud Platform, and Google Apps.Upon the close of acquisition, both Bebop and Greene will join Google’s cloud business platform.last_img read more
