Samarbetet med IOC innebär bland annat att Alibaba ska tillhandahålla moln- och e-handelstjänster i en olympisk tv-kanal för den kinesiska publiken.Vi har en global vision och den olympiska rörelsen kan hjälpa oss i det , sa Jack Ma.Läs mer: Jack Ma lovar Donald Trump en miljon nya jobbAlibabas mål är att nå 2 miljarder kunder, världen över.Förutom organisk tillväxt bör det ske genom partnerskap, snarare än förvärv, sa Jack Ma.Ytterligare en orsak till att han slutit avtalet med IOC och engagerat sig i den olympiska rörelsen är att få fler unga intresserad av sport, vilket är en bra träning för att göra människor mer emotionella och kärleksfulla, sa han.

BEIJING—China s flagship state-owned chip maker Tsinghua Unigroup said it plans to build a $30 billion memory-chip factory in Nanjing, its latest investment as China moves to diminish its dependence on U.S. chip manufacturers.After several of its international chip deals were blocked by foreign governments, Tsinghua Unigroup has focused more on acquiring overseas talent and building its own plants.This new planned plant comes after Tsinghua Unigroup announced a $24 billion memory chip factory in a different Chinese city, Wuhan, last March.The U.S. is particularly wary about China s chip investments because semiconductors are one of the few sectors that the U.S. still manufactures competitively at home.Chips are the brains inside all computing devices and are an expensive technology that few companies can make.Chinese officials say they need to be able to make the technology themselves to ensure national security.
The extremely small and mostly concrete principality of Sealand is experiencing a surge in popularity, as UK citizens not keen on retaining a British passport regardless of its future colour are attempting to switch nationalities.Sealand is a well known Second World War fort that sits in the sea around six miles off Felixstowe, where owner Michael "Prince Michael" Bates runs a little business selling aristocratic titles, mugs, stamps and coins, while wondering what he can do to make his offshore legal micronation more attractive to visitors.The prince said he's been battered with passport requests of late, saying: "The number of applications has been staggering - there have literally been hundreds every day via the website.We have replied to some out of courtesy but have simply not been able to reply to them all.It's just not been possible."Which sounds like he's missing a trick and should be charging £10,000 for a passport and a weekend mini break to complete the paperwork.
The creators of time-bending first-person shatter-'em-up Superhot have announced a creative competition with prizes up to and including a publishing contract worth nearly £41,000.Launched early last year following the stand-out success of its prototype release, Superhot offered a minimalist twist on the first-person shooter with one key gimmick: Time, by and large, moves only when you do.What would have normally been a frenetic and fast-paced blaster thus turns into a carefully-planned strategy title, with the added bonus that you can view and share a level's run-through in real-time speed once you've completed it.Now, Superhot's eponymous developer has teamed up with game modding site Mod DB to launch a competition in which the top prize is a $50,000 around £41,000 publishing contract with IMGN.PRO, which published Superhot Team's game.The competition is split into two sections.The first looks for modders to develop standalone games or mods which take their inspiration from Superhot, and counts among its prizes cash, high-end computing hardware, and Oculus Rift units.

Epämääräisiä ja keskenään ristiriitaisia, osin taiteellisia ideoita, joilla ei ole käytännöllistä yhteyttä nykyaikaan.Vahva halu hallita koko maata ja palauttaa sen mennyt kunnia rakentamalla uusi valtio, jossa vallitsevat rauha, laki ja hyvyys.Kirjailija Luigi Barzinin luonnehdinta kirjassa The Italians 1964 vie ajatukset ensin Benito Mussoliniin, mutta kyseessä on hämäys: tarina kertoo Cola di Rienzistä, joka hallitsi Roomaa ja omasta mielestään koko Italiaa kahteen otteeseen 1300-luvun puolivälissä.Cola eli Nicola oli syntyisin vaatimattomista oloista, mutta hän opiskeli Raamattua ja antiikin klassikoita niin tarkkaan, että osasi siteerata niitä ulkomuistista puheissaan.Hän teki vaikutuksen sekä Rooman rahvaaseen että Pyhään istuimeen, joka oli maanpaossa Ranskan Avignonissa.Hän järjesti kirkon tuella verettömän vallankaappauksen 1347 ja julisti itsensä muun muassa "Leskien, orpojen ja köyhien tribuuniksi".
Onboarding is the most important stage of a user's experience with your service.It's when they learn to love your product or they drop out.That means learning from users and iterating throughout the onboarding experience is a crucial growth strategy.We've seen user onboarding improvements drive Week 1 retention up to 75% from around 60%, and that growth continues through the customer lifecycle.But so much goes into creating an onboarding journey that it's difficult to tell whose jurisdiction it falls under.Does the buck stop with the product manager?
Gary Illyes from Google has written a blog post titled What Crawl Budget Means for Googlebot.In it, he explains what crawl budget is, how crawl rate limits work, what crawl demand is and what factors impact a site s crawl budget.First, Gary explained that for most sites, crawl budget is not something to worry about.For really large sites, it becomes something to consider looking at.Prioritizing what to crawl, when, and how much resource the server hosting the site can allocate to crawling is more important for bigger sites, or those that auto-generate pages based on URL parameters, Gary said.Here is a short summary of what was published, but I recommend reading the full post.
Late Thursday night, Nintendo unveiled a ton of important details about its upcoming game console, the Switch.Thanks to that event, we now know the Switch's to start , release date March 3 , and list of games on the horizon.But right now, you're probably just wondering how you can
As we previously reported, the us consumer organisation Consumer Reports test of the new Macbook Pro incorrectly due to a bug in Safari.They have now updated their test, and the computer has received a recommendation.8 maciga accessories for a much neater deskIn the updated versions, type Consumer Reports that with the updated software, performed all three Macbook Pro good in our lab, where one of them passed the of 18,75 hours on a single charge.We tested each model several times with the new software, according to the same protocol we use on the hundreds of tests of laptop computers each year .the Reason for that recommendation was absent from the beginning was that Consumer Reports used a setting in Safari that got the icons to load on and on.
Three major events took place this week involving presidents.Barack Obama delivered a heartfelt farewell speech a day before Donald Trump s first scheduled press conference in months, and if that wasn t enough to keep you busy, an unverified intelligence report about Trump came out just as Obama delivered his speech, alleging that the President-elect has deep ties with Russia.That unexpected report set the tone for the entire news cycle, and Stephen Colbert also focused on it in a hilarious monologue on Wednesday night.Colbert came out with a barrage of jokes referencing the golden showers hinted at in the Trump report, without actually mentioning this particular term.Trump is right in this one way, Colbert said.Everyone admits this report is unverified.

Radishes may not be the best food option to help a picky eater expand their palette.But if your kid loves playing Super Mario Bros., this neat little kitchen tool can turn red radishes into snack-sized power-ups that will also help your small human grow — just not as fast as Mario does.The £10 Ravanello tool shaves down the bottom of a radish to give it a mushroom-like stem.A gouging tool can then be used to carve out semi-circles on the top, giving the vegetable the appearance of a polka-dot-covered toadstool.The tool — which, while slightly useless, is also admittedly fun — doesn t change the flavour of the radishes, and it doesn t imbue them with any magical powers.But don t pretend like you wouldn t devour a salad tossed with these vitamin-packed power-ups.
Nokia recently announced its grand return to the phone market with the Nokia 6, but to the disappointment of many the mid-range phone was revealed to only be on sale in China.However, Nokia s parent company HMD Global said it had more perhaps internationally available Nokia product announcements to come and it looks like they could be happening as soon as February.In a Facebook post advertising the Nokia 6, Nokia Mobile also added that there are more announcements to follow on February 26.This date lines up perfectly with MWC 2017, which is set to begin on February in 27 in Barcelona.Whether or not these announcements will include Nokia smartphones for the western market is unclear.If HMD Global is planning more phones, MWC would be the perfect place to unveil them.
Retroviruses - the family of viruses that includes HIV - are almost half a billion years old, according to research by Oxford University.The findings, in the journal Nature Communications, date the viruses to be several hundred million years older than previously thought, and suggest retroviruses have ancient marine origins, having been with their animal hosts through the transition from sea to land.Until now, very little was known about the ancient origin of retroviruses, partly because of a lack of geological fossil records, and the findings will help scientists better understand what they called "the continuing arms race between viruses and their hosts".In particular, it could help scientists track how viruses evolve in order to kill them, develop vaccines, and tackle increasing antibiotic resistance."Retroviruses are broadly distributed among vertebrates and can also transmit between hosts, leading to novel diseases such as HIV, and they have been shown to be capable of leaping between distantly related hosts such as birds and mammals," explained study author Aris Katzourakis, from Oxford University's Department of Zoology.Our new research shows that retroviruses are at least 450 million years old, if not older, and that they must have originated together with, if not before, their vertebrate hosts in the early Paleozoic era."
A new paper from Columbia University suggests that Tabby s star—the celestial object voted most likely to host an alien megastructure—is acting weirdly because it recently annihilated an entire planet, and the shattered remains of that planet are now producing strange flickering effects.It s probably the best theory we ve heard so far.The new paper, authored by Brian Metzger, Ken Shen, and Nicholas Stone, is currently undergoing peer review at the astrophysical journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.One theory for the odd behaviour exhibited by Tabby star is that two proto-planets smashed into each other pictured above , producing a massive debris field.The new theory suggests a collision likely occurred—but between a large planet and the star itself.Trouble is, none of these theories can explain the double-whammy of anomalies, i.e.
At this point, we know a lot about AMD s hotly anticipated Ryzen processors, which look to be AMD s best chip family in a decade.We know some basic specs.We know every Ryzen CPU will be overclockable.We know the chips will have a ton of hardware support at launch—and that AM4 motherboards will last until 2020 at least.At CES, AMD representatives told PCWorld that the target was not the end of the quarter.But a slip-up in a Game Developers Conference session listing gives greater clarity into Ryzen s arrival timing.
Elephone just released some information about the upcoming eleCam Explorer 6 action camera, a move that leaves me a bit puzzled as I thought the new MGCOOL sub-brand were going to cover that product line.But so it is, let s find out what the camera is about then!According to Elephone, the eleCam Explorer 6 will be able to shoot 4K videos, I assume at 30fps at least, and record footage at 120fps, which is quite good for slow motion videos about x4 slower .Other than that we can only see how it ll look from the image they provided, it ll have a white/greysh top band and an orange body which appears to be made of a very easy to hold plastic material.The design also reminds of the older eleCam Explorer, with the positioning of the power button and camera lens.That s everything we know as of now, does any of you guys get excited about new action cameras?Comment below if that s so!
Marissa Mayer is getting ready to say goodbye to Yahoo's board, but not necessarily to the Yahoo brand.The company said in a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing Monday that it will shed almost everything that makes it Yahoo, including its name, when its deal with Verizon closes.If you're a Yahoo shareholder, you might notice the difference, but for Yahoo users, the consequences of Monday's filing are minimal.Yahoo the company has two major assets: a worldwide network of internet portals, and a 15 percent stake in Chinese internet giant Alibaba worth many times that.When a plan to sell off the Alibaba stake ran into tax complications, the company pivoted, instead striking a deal to sell its portals, its brand -- almost everything but the Alibaba stake, in fact -- to Verizon.Verizon is expected to merge Yahoo's portal activities with AOL, which it bought in 2015.
