Finland has largest share of economy based on information technology – UN

15 February 2012Finland has the world’s largest portion of domestic economic activities related to information and communication technology, with almost a tenth of the European country’s non-agricultural business workforce employed in the ICT sector, according to United Nations data released today. Finland has the world’s largest portion of domestic economic activities related to information and communication technology, with almost a tenth of the European country’s non-agricultural business workforce employed in the ICT sector, according to United Nations data released today.The data, released by the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in Geneva, also shows that the ICT sector is still in its infancy in many developing economies.The UNCTAD database currently contains information on 57 economies. The lack of more comprehensive data can be seen as yet another illustration of the digital divide, the agency said in a press release.None of the countries classified as among the world’s least developed countries (LDCs) report statistics on the size of their ICT sectors, UNCTAD points out.Based on the latest available data, the proportion of ICT-sector employment in all business sectors ranges from less than two per cent in Azerbaijan, Croatia and Kazakhstan to more than eight per cent in Finland, Israel and Sweden.The ICT sector is playing a growing role in a number of developing countries, according to UNCTAD. In India, for example, the contribution of the ICT sector to gross domestic product (GDP) rose from 3.4 per cent in 2000-01 to 5.9 per cent in 2007-08.In Kenya, the sector has expanded annually by more than 20 per cent over the past decade and accounted for a staggering 24 per cent of the country’s GDP growth during that period.The ICT sector has an impact on governments, companies, individuals and society at large, creating jobs, spurring innovation and supporting the sustained use of ICTs in domestic economies, resulting in increased productivity and efficiency.Jobs in ICT have proved to be more productive than those in other sectors, according to UNCTAD.In the member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), between 1995 and 2008, labour productivity grew faster in the ICT sector than in the rest of the business sector.The sector’s contribution to domestic economies is typically higher in terms of value added than in jobs. However, it employs relatively younger people with above-average levels of education, making it possible for them to have upward mobility, job security, and future training opportunities. read more

Podcast Nate Silver On The Power Of Elo

How can the 2007 Patriots be the best NFL team ever when they didn’t even win the Super Bowl? Welcome to this week’s episode of Hot Takedown, our podcast where the hot sports takes of the week meet the numbers that prove them right or tear them down. On this week’s show (Sept. 22, 2015), Nate Silver joins for a special one-on-one discussion with Chadwick Matlin (Neil Paine and Kate Fagan are out of town). Nate and Chad talk about a Boston University report that raised an alarm about long-term brain injury in NFL players and what it says about sample size. Then, Nate offers a defense of Elo, the power rating we use at FiveThirtyEight to rank teams and athletes in nearly every sport. What is Elo? How does it work? Are the 2007 New England Patriots really the best NFL team of all time despite not winning the Super Bowl?And to close out the show, a Significant Digit on a new accomplishment by U.S. soccer midfielder Carli Lloyd.Stream the episode by clicking the play button, or subscribe using one of the podcast clients we’ve linked to above.

The Warriors Odds Of Going 739

As things stand coming out of the All-Star break, the Warriors will probably catch Michael Jordan’s 1995-96 Bulls, which own the record of 72 wins, and are a little better than a coin flip to pass them.Last time we checked in on Golden State’s run to 73 was back in December, when the model gave the Warriors a 54 percent chance of getting at least 72 wins and a 44.1 percent chance of at least 73. A little more than two months later, the Warriors are 48-4 and those chances are 69.8 percent to hit 72 and an even 54 percent to reach 73. From where we sit, at least, the Warriors now appear likely to break the ’96 Bulls’ record. WINSSIMSCHANCE OF EXACTLY THIS MANY WINSCHANCE OF AT LEAST THIS MANY WINS 57880.299.9 593940.899.3 64530.199.9 72785715.769.8 68631712.631.2 591<0.1%100.0% 7112182.43.3 7028075.68.9 676341.398.9 6223724.794.0 64502210.082.2 611<0.1>99.9 75575411.520.9 582030.499.7 The Warriors are shooting 46.3 percent from three on “wide open” (defender more than 6 feet away) threes, best in the league. They also lead the league in “open” threes at 41 percent and “tight” coverage threes at 37.3 percent. They do fall to fourth in “very tight” threes (36.1 percent) but have taken only 36 of those all season. Curry’s 646 3-point attempts last season were more than those Miller and Bird seasons combined — and he’s on pace to demolish that number this year. 6321<0.1>99.9 7632076.49.3 782430.50.5 50,000 CARM-Elo simulations of the Spurs’ season with data through Feb. 18Before Thursday night’s loss, the Spurs’ chance for 70 wins was 19.4 percent. With the loss, it fell to 8.9 — still absurdly high, but well back of the Warriors.Andrew Flowers and Jay Boice contributed research. 723790.80.9 According to nbaminer.com, Curry has scored 10 straight points for his team 10 times, the most in the league (James Harden is second with nine); he’s scored 15 straight team points three times (Harden is second again, two) and 20 straight once (only Paul George has also done that this season). Curry has scored five straight unanswered points 55 times (Harden is second with 47, followed by George and Klay Thompson at 30).2Reggie Jackson is the only player to score 15 unanswered points this season. Only three players have done it since the 1996-7 season — Jackson this year, Jamal Crawford in 2013-14 and Brandon Jennings in 2012-13.Probably the most alarming thing about the Warriors this season is how thoroughly they are outpacing the Spurs, another omega-level team stalking around the league. Also according to nbaminer.com, the Warriors’ average first-quarter margin is +6.04. The Spurs are second at +2.98. The Spurs remain ahead of the Warriors on the overall marks, +12.7 to +12.5, but this difference is more than accounted for in the fourth quarter, where the Warriors are -0.12 and the Spurs are an NBA-best +2.56. The Warriors’ average margin per overtime period is +4.0, best in the league.And here’s the same display of possible records we generated for the Warriors above, but for the Spurs. 71599612.081.7 73855917.154.0 67710514.245.4 50,000 CARM-Elo simulations of the Warriors’ season with data through Feb. 18 5511<0.1100.0 74803116.136.9 542<0.1100.0 (While we’re digging out old charts, get a load of Draymond in these.) 73680.10.1 If the Warriors completely gave up the 3-pointer and shot none of them per game from this point forward, the Timberwolves, who take the fewest threes per game, would need 50 games to catch up in attempts and 83 games to catch up in makes, pulling even right around the 137th game of the season. Steph Curry is 11 for 24 on threes from 30 feet or more, according to nbawowy.com. Six of those shots (and one of the makes) were from beyond half court, meaning he’s 10 for 18 between 30 feet and the center line. (The rest of the Warriors are 1 for 14 from 30-plus.) Consider this a reminder that Ben Morris dug into Steph’s imperious shot selection in December. 7712242.52.9 651380.399.8 625<0.1>99.9 6925855.294.9 In order to match the best 3-point-percentage season of Reggie Miller’s career (42.9 percent), Steph Curry (45.4 percent from three on 10.8 per game) would have to miss 31 straight threes; to match Larry Bird’s best (42.7 percent) he’d need to miss 34 straight; to match LeBron’s mark this season (27.4 percent) he would have to miss 354 straight 3-point shots. 66715314.359.7 Oh, here’s a scatter plot of 3-point attempts vs. 3-point percentage since the 1979-80 season, the first year of the 3-pointer: 532<0.1100.0 This foolishness: The Warriors create 70.4 points per game through assists. The rest of the league has a fairly linear progression from the bottom on up — the Lakers are the worst, at 43.2, and the figure creeps up team by team until it stops with the Hawks, in second place, at 60.3. That isn’t adjusted for tempo (the Warriors play at the second-fastest pace in the league), but the Dubs are also comfortably in first in percentage of passes that are assists, are secondary assists or lead to free throws. 6114502.996.9 WINSSIMSCHANCE OF EXACTLY THIS MANY WINSCHANCE OF AT LEAST THIS MANY WINS 6335447.189.3 65622812.572.1 608091.698.5 56360.1100.0 7040088.089.8 Our colleagues at ESPN Stats & Info once again have a less optimistic outlook, today giving the Warriors a 37 percent chance of hitting 73 or more wins. The explanation for the difference in the two models is the same as it was in December, when we were also more bullish than our colleagues: We devised a different rating system, called CARM-Elo, which allows good (or bad) runs of play in the simulations to inform a team’s simulated strength through the rest of the simulated season. Basically, this means that it allows for extreme performance to be reflected in the results, and the Warriors are certainly extreme.Still, all of the back-and-forth over exactly how good the Warriors are is more than a little backward. Any serious debate over whether Golden State is an all-time team dried up months ago; all that’s left now is the dreary accounting of decimal points next to the team’s name. Screw that. NBA nerds slapfighting over some grandiose meaning of the Warriors is boring — it’s the spectacle that matters, the crossovers and no-looks and nonsense transition threes, and how those feats of skill translate to the stat sheet. That in mind, here’s a bunch of Warriors facts aimed at appreciating the wild mess they’re accomplishing this season, rather than simply measuring it.The Warriors would have to miss their next 545 3-pointers to bring their team mark of 42.4 percent down to the level of the league-worst Lakers, at 31.5 percent. 6813682.797.7 663140.699.6 521<0.1%100.0% 601<0.1>99.9 6947919.618.5 Remember that two-month stretch in the summer of 2009 when Steph Curry might have gone to the Knicks, before Donnie Walsh and Mike D’Antoni went around telling anyone who would stand still long enough to hear it exactly why Curry would be a superstar? And remember how disappointing it was, then, when Curry landed on a Warriors team that didn’t use him at all in the way fans dreamed he might be used by the Pringles ‘stache? Well, Curry found his way into the seven-seconds-or-less offense anyway. By NBA.com’s count (which can lag a game or two behind), the Warriors have taken 299 threes in the first seven seconds of the shot clock and made 48.5 percent of them. The next closest by percentage is Indiana, at 42.5 on 167 attempts; Houston, first in attempts with 301 (in four more games than Golden State) has made 38.9 percent of its own; and the Thunder have found a way to make just 31.6 percent on 171 attempts. On all field goals in the seven-seconds-or-less window,1NBA.com doesn’t have free-throw data for these, for some reason. the Warriors have a 68 percent effective field-goal percentage — the next closest is the Cavs, at 63.4 percent. The Knicks, meanwhile, are last in the league at 51.4 percent. read more

Opinion Lack of medal in Sochi disappointing shows need for improvement for

US forward Joe Pavelski (left) and goalie Jonathan Quick greet each other following their loss to Finland in the men’s Bronze Medal hockey game at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, Feb. 22. Finland defeated the US, 5-0.Courtesy of MCTIt wasn’t supposed to end this way, was it?That’s the question every U.S. hockey fan was asking themselves after the men’s team was shut out by Canada Friday and then Finland Saturday to depart Sochi empty-handed.After three awesome performances in Group A of the Olympic Games — highlighted by a shootout win over host Russia — the Americans overpowered the Czech Republic to reach the semifinals against the Canadians. Everything was going according to plan.Then it all changed: two losses, no goals scored and an overwhelming sense of unfulfilled expectations.First came the frustration of Friday’s game against Canada, where those pesky neighbors to the north played a nearly flawless game, nullifying that esteemed American attack to win 1-0. Less than 24 hours later, with the disappointment of the semifinal defeat still clear for all to see, the U.S. sleepwalked through a 5-0 loss against Finland in the bronze medal game.A promising Olympic adventure ended in failure, with not even a consolation prize to help ease the pain. The chance was there. They just couldn’t take it.All of this seems that much more dispiriting because of the team’s incredible run four years ago in Vancouver, one that seemed like a seminal moment in U.S. hockey. Here was a youthful American team standing toe-to-toe with everyone it faced, even beating Canada in group play before losing to the same opponents in the gold medal game. Those silver medals the players received were more than just a reward for their efforts, they represented the growth of the American player in the NHL, a talented player on par with those produced in any other country.Naturally, many people saw this year’s games as another stepping stone in the United States’ ascent to the top of the international hockey mountain.This was supposed to be another memorable journey — and for the most part it was — but the margin between success and victory at the top level proved to be thin, and instead of the heroic exploits of 2010, it was the thwarted glory of 2014.Though, when viewed through the lens of history, the fourth place finish isn’t entirely surprising. Team USA men’s hockey team has only won two gold medals (1960, 1980) and hasn’t made it to the Olympic podium in consecutive Olympics since that win in Squaw Valley in 1960. The entire men’s ice hockey competition is also somewhat unpredictable, with Finland being the only country to medal in it each of the last three Olympics (Sochi, Vancouver and Turin).But none of those facts makes the reversal in fortunes of this year’s American team any harder to swallow. Neither does seeing Canada breeze past Sweden to win back-to-back gold medals.In the end, Team USA was still a misplayed puck or a goaltending error away from the gold medal game, but the reality is that they didn’t do enough to get there.Hopefully we will look back on Sochi as an anomaly, a time when things just didn’t click into place for the Americans. Or we could see it as indicative of the improvement Team USA still needs to make. Either way, expectations will once again be high when the men in red, white and blue take to the ice in PyeongChang, South Korea, in four years time.I see no reason as to why things won’t be better, but the uncertain nature of Olympic hockey makes me hesitant to make any predictions. All I know is that if you see someone watching the games with a look of pained anticipation, it will be me. I wouldn’t have it any other way. read more

thyssenkrupp and Siemens extend cooperation agreement

first_imgDue to the pressures still facing the mining industry to reduce operating costs and enhance productivity, thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions and Siemens have decided to prolong their successful collaboration in the mining sector for another five years. “This means the two companies can continue to provide the mining sector withinnovative and reliable transport systems into the future.”The technological requirements in mines are becoming increasingly challenging. Declining ore grades and new mines in inaccessible regions mean that more and more material needs to be transported over ever-longer distances. “Conveying technology must keep up with the complex requirements of the modern mining industry. We want to continue offering our customers reliable and highly efficient conveyor systems,” said Jens Michael Wegmann, Chairman of the Management Board of the Industrial Solutions Business Area of thyssenkrupp. “It is only possible to optimise modern mechatronic belt drive systems like this by working in close cooperation with a partner because the mechanics and the motor form a self-contained unit. That’s why we are carrying on the tried and tested cooperationwith Siemens,” Wegmann continued.Rugged, reliable and easy-to-maintain integrated drive technology is imperative for conveyor systems used in the mining industry. “We are happy to be able to keep on supporting thyssenkrupp with our time-proven direct drive systems featuring Sinamics cycloconverters and rugged synchronous motors which have undergone continuous further development in recent years,” confirmed Jürgen Brandes, CEO of the Siemens Process Industries and Drives Division. In order to satisfy the constantly increasing performance demanded by the mines industry, Siemens offers a 3-10 MW motor series along with the associated converter systems.“Both thyssenkrupp and Siemens have long years of experience in mining and lead the sector in their respective technological fields. The two companies have successfully implemented a number of joint projects in recent years. thyssenkrupp provided the conveyor system for Xstrata Copper in the Antapaccay and Las Bambas copper mines in Peru, for instance. And Siemens provided thyssenkrupp with the direct drive for the world’s largest conveyor belt. The belt conveyor system is being erected in the Peruvian Cuajone mine belonging to the Mexican Southern Copper Corporation (SCC) mining company.”last_img read more

Gorgeous mini arcade created using a Neo Geo arcade board

first_imgIf you were a gamer back in the day and frequented arcades, then you know that the Neo Geo system provided the most authentic arcade experience out there. How could it not, considering that the system was basically a portable arcade cabinet? It’s been many years since the release of the system, but those who want to experience (or re-experience) those classic games will be able to thanks to a sweet mini arcade system that someone built.The Starforce Neo is an all-in-one system that will let you play old Neo Geo cartridges. The system, which was created by Marcel J de Haan of the SFP Development Team, contains an original SNK MV-1B motherboard that is housed inside of a converted 1982 Minitel 1 case. Games can be played using the authentic Seimitsu buttons and joystick found at the front of the system. The internal monitor is an eight-inch LCD screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio that is behind a glossy protective window. The system sends its SCART signal through a scanline generator that displays 480p resolution graphics on the internal display.The back of the machine has two Neo Geo-compatible controller ports so others can join in on the fun. There is also an HDMI port hidden on the bottom that lets users plug the system up to their televisions. Having the HDMI port is a smart move considering how difficult it would be for two people to play on the same eight-inch screen.The Starforce Neo comes with a Neo Geo controller and the SFNeo MVS MultiCart in AES shell, which has 97 classic original Neo Geo titles on it.

The Falcons won 33-16. (AP photo/Bob Leverone) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 4 Comments   Share   Top Stories He joined the Falcons as a safeties coach, holding that position from 1994-95 before becoming secondary coach in 1996. From 1997-2000, he was the Chicago Bears’ special teams coach and held the same position with the Miami Dolphins from 2001-07 before returning to Atlanta with the same duties in 2008.The news of Armstrong meeting with the Cardinals comes after Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak turned down the chance to interview with Arizona a second time. Munchak said the timing for his family was not appropriate.Armstrong joins Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores and potentially Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo and Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks. All were among the nine candidates the Cardinals reportedly interviewed in their coaching search.

BEVERLY HILLS Calif – The Oscar nominees lunche

first_img BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – The Oscar nominees’ luncheon is like an exclusive clubhouse where every member is an outstanding artist and film super-fan.So the production designer of “The Shape of Water” is free to geek out over meeting Mary J. Blige, who herself shared a moment with Gary Oldman.Actress Sally Hawkins embraced Margot Robbie while Greta Gerwig chatted with Meryl Streep. Jordan Peele talked shop with Willem Dafoe. First-time acting nominees Daniel Kaluuya and Timothee Chalamet high-fived every time they saw each other.Even nominees who couldn’t attend were there in spirit, or at least in cardboard-cutout form. Street artist JR brought a life-sized cardboard portrait of “Faces Places” co-director Agnes Varda. He brought the Varda cutout on the red carpet and into the risers for the annual Oscars “class photo.”But the person perhaps enjoying the Oscar luncheon the most was retired Lakers star Kobe Bryant. Nominated for his contributions to the animated short “Dear Basketball,” Bryant wore a beaming grin throughout the event, practically skipping his meal to pose for photos with his many fans in the room, including fellow nominees Allison Janney and “Logan” screenwriter James Mangold. Bryant said being in the Oscar mix is “better than all those championships put together.”“I don’t know what’s going on!” the 39-year-old said, practically giggling. “I love this.”An annual tradition since 1982, the Oscar nominees’ luncheon brings together the year’s nominated artists for a collegial meal, extended mingling and the group photo. This year’s event drew 170 of the 200 artists nominated.Film academy president John Bailey explained the history of the film academy before telling nominees that they each embody “this 90-year academy history.” He dropped the words “envelope malfunction” in a passing reference to last year’s best picture flub, but more pointedly offered a new hashtag to replace #OscarsSoWhite, a criticism that inspired sweeping changes for greater inclusion in the film academy. Bailey’s new hashtag: “Oscars so 90th.”He said the academy reinventing itself in “this era of greater awareness and responsibility in balancing gender, race, ethnicity and religion.”Addressing those issues and perhaps the #MeToo movement, Bailey said, “I may be a 75-year-old white male, but I’m every bit as gratified as the youngest of you here that the fossilized bedrock of many of Hollywood’s worst abuses are being jackhammered into oblivion.”Actress Laura Dern called for greater compassion and representation throughout the industry. She then announced every nominee’s name as each took their places on risers for a group photo.“Radicals, subversives and wild ones,” Dern said, “Thank you for getting us through this last year with every one of your films somehow reflecting the wealth of emotions that we are all going through.”Telecast producers Jennifer Todd and Michael De Luca briefly greeted the nominees, with Todd saying, “It’s our honour to produce the show in a year where the nominations are finally starting to reflect the world that we live in and the way it looks, speaks and tells stories.”Then they brought actor-comedian Patton Oswalt out to give eventual Oscar winners tips for delivering memorable acceptance speeches.“They’ve spared every expense bringing me here,” he quipped.His first tip? Hustle to the stage. “If you need something to speed you up, think of the hot, murderous glares of your colleagues on your back as you’re moving up there. Let it fuel you.”He also put the kibosh on “trips and falls” on the way to claim an Oscar. “We know it’s adorable,” Oswalt said. “Jennifer owns it. That’s her thing now.”Jennifer Lawrence famously fell on her way to accept the best actress Oscar for “Silver Linings Playbook” in 2013.Tip two? Be concise. And don’t say you didn’t expect to win.“Yes you did,” he said. “You were nominated.”He also cautioned against thanking managers and agents. “Just cover for yourself, all right?” he said. “You don’t want to explain to your grandkids why you thanked someone that Dateline just did a four-part series on.”He told nominees they don’t need to hunch over at the microphone.“Think Freddie Mercury, not Tom Waits,” Oswalt said. “Look up and project.”Finally, he said, “be heartfelt and be meaningful.“And when I say that,” he said, “I mean act that way.”___Follow AP Entertainment Writer Sandy Cohen at www.twitter.com/YouKnowSandy .___For full coverage of awards season, visit: https://apnews.com/tag/AwardsSeason .
