3Dprinted privacy cover for Glass puts everyone at ease

first_imgThere are a lot of people concerned about the camera on Google Glass, and how it could maybe be used if the wearer was in any way malevolent. To address this possible concern, one Glass Explorer has made a 3D-printed privacy shield for the headset.You’d probably be the worst spy ever if you tried to stalk someone with Glass on, but that doesn’t stop a vocal minority from expressing concerns about a camera mounted to the right of one’s head. To their point, there’s no notification light when you are recording, aside from the “Terminator” glow that the prism gives off whenever you are using it. No one knows when you are taking pictures or recording, so those around you either assume you’re never recording or assume you’re always recording.As a result, the list of places Glass is banned from seems to be growing at a fairly constant rate. The easiest way to get rid of concerns would be to hide the camera and cover up the display. Thanks to Glass Explorer Ryan Weaving, all you need is a 3D printer to make that happen.Shortly after our discussion on the social implications of Glass, a conversation arose about how exactly you could block out the camera on Glass. That’s the big issue here — the camera and the light from the prism are unnerving to some. Fortunately, those two pieces are right next to one another, and connected to the same flexible arm at the end of every Glass unit.In order to make something that would cover both of these things, Weaving tried out a few ideas in 3D modeling and came up with a cap that went over Glass. The end of the cap covers the camera, while the box-shaped end encapsulates the prism without actually touching it. Not only is the camera gone, but you could be staring into the sun and the projector on Glass would be clear as day to you now.While it is true that you lose the ability to see through the prism, it’s likely that there will be versions of this cap that allow for just the camera to be covered, or to have the back of the prism cover open so the break in your field of vision would be lessened. It’s a good solution for those that feel they would be in situations where people would assume Glass wearers are up to no good.Weaving has shared this design on Thingiverse for anyone to use and enjoy.last_img read more

HeForShe Emma Watsons empty promise that when womens problems are solved men

first_img By Karen Straughan Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL Sunday 19 Mar 2017, 8:45 AM 161 Comments 5,311 Views HeForShe: Emma Watson’s empty promise that when women’s problems are solved, men will be free too Emma Watson made an empty promise to young men that if only they do as men have always been expected to do—sacrifice and serve—they will eventually be liberated, writes Karen Straughan.center_img AS THE ABORTION debate heats up and it seems like the mass media can hardly go a day without publishing an article decrying the problems facing women in modern society, feminism in Ireland is coming under more scrutiny than it ever has before.There are many questions that can be asked, and should be asked, about feminism in Ireland today, questions about its origins, its goals, what it really stands for and the direction it’s taking. With vocal feminists on both sides of the abortion line, clarity is something in short supply when it’s needed more than ever.Rather than asking these questions sotto voce with furtive glances over the shoulder, Irish feminism needs to join international feminism under the spotlight of public interest, especially given its extraordinary and unelected influence at high levels of the Irish government.Emma Watson backlashAnd there are few figures who could be considered more international than Emma Watson, an actress beloved by many for her role in the popular Harry Potter movies, especially among Irish women.Actress Emma Watson, UN Women’s current Goodwill Ambassador, made headlines last week when she divulged that the backlash against her “HeforShe” campaign had her so depressed and despondent that she could barely get out of bed.Interestingly enough, most of the backlash she describes as leaving her so discouraged as to be bedridden came from feminists themselves, who largely criticised her for being a privileged, wealthy, white, dabbling elitist, exploiting her substantial platform to presume to speak on behalf of women whose lives and struggles she could never truly understand.Finding relatable spokespeopleAs a daughter of working class parents, the former wife of a working class man, who raised three children and two stepchildren while living well under the poverty line and burying one of them along the way… I have to admit that I don’t disagree with that sentiment.The dilemma advocacy organisations like UN Women face is in finding spokespeople who are both relatable and recognisable, when the reality is that you can have the one or the other.More interesting, however, to me anyway, was the absence of any mention in the mainstream press of the male backlash against Watson’s campaign, a backlash in which I eagerly took part.If HeforShe was divorced from the daily reality of 90% of ordinary women, who are more concerned with the business of surviving, than with whether the wealthiest women on earth get paid less than the wealthiest men, it existed in another universe entirely from the one inhabited by the vast majority of men.Divorced from men’s realityImagine, if you will, a queen arrayed in an outfit that costs the average annual salary of the average working class schlub, an outfit she’ll wear only once because it would be gauche to wear it twice, pretending to speak for the experiences and struggles of the common woman. Ridiculous.Now imagine this queen appealing to a group of people who are underrepresented in nearly every single metric of social wellbeing and success, from having a fixed address to being employed to finishing school, to pledge their efforts towards preventing girls from being called “bossy” and speaking up for young women in sports.Imagine her telling these young men that once all women and girls are liberated from the shackles of gendered oppression, their lives will magically improve too. Just by osmosis, or something.That appeal ventures beyond the ridiculous, beyond the sublimeIt is emotional abuse on an epic scale. It is an empty promise to young men that if only they do as men have always been expected to do—sacrifice and serve—they will eventually be liberated from the constraints of male sacrifice and service. Sure, it looks a lot like old-fashioned chivalry, but please be assured, it’s not. It’s HeforShe. It’s feminism.Men pledging to stand up for women and girls, to protect them from harm, difficulty and exploitation, that’s equality, don’t you know. HeforShe. It’s a completely novel idea. Never been tried before. It might not work, but we’re willing to run with it.But don’t expect a cookie or a pat on the head, lads. You don’t deserve a “thank you” for being a decent human being, after all. A good deed is its own reward, no matter what it costs you. And don’t forget to check your male privilege.Feminism promises but doesn’t deliverIt’s little wonder that Ms Watson has expressed no real interest in addressing any of these concerns, even though she leveraged the dire state of men in the western world as bait to recruit them as foot soldiers in her mission. How could she possibly answer for it?Years ago, someone on a message board called me the woman feminism promised and never delivered. Every day, and with every effort I make, those words remind me of the incredible responsibility I have taken on.Women do not lack for Lancelots, Arthurs or Quixotes. They have an endless pool of candidates prepared to tilt on their behalf. And what do men have?Emma Watson’s promise that one day, when all of women’s problems have been solved and all women have been liberated from hardship, men will be free to be “vulnerable and human too.”Karen Straughan is owner of the YouTube channel GirlWritesWhat, co-founder of Honey Badger Radio, gender counter-theorist, and a men’s rights advocate.‘Syrians are increasingly likely to opt for a strongman like Assad, capable of bringing stability’>Zoo deaths: ‘In the wild, gorillas don’t eat their own vomit and pull out their hair in frustration’> Karen Straughan http://jrnl.ie/3288855 Share Tweet Email3 Mar 19th 2017, 8:45 AM last_img read more

MPs overwhelmingly back delaying Brexit if needed as Labour says it will

first_img By Órla Ryan 30,725 Views Short URL Prime Minister Theresa May Source: House of Commons/PA Wire/PA ImagesMEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT in the British House of Commons have overwhelmingly backed a proposal that could allow Brexit to be delayed. The motion, put forward by Labour MP Yvette Cooper, was passed by 502 votes to 20.Essentially, MPs were voting on plans Prime Minister Theresa May proposed yesterday in relation to a series of Brexit-related votes being held next month. They have now formally backed the holding of a series of meaningful votes in the coming weeks to decide what form Brexit will take, including a potential vote on whether to seek to extend Article 50 and delay leaving the EU.Twenty Conservative Party MPs voted against the proposal. Share244 Tweet Email https://jrnl.ie/4516704 Wednesday 27 Feb 2019, 9:24 PM 27 Comments We will also continue to push for the other available options to prevent those outcomes, including a close economic relationship based on our credible alternative plan or a general election.May faces an uphill battle to get a Brexit deal over the line. The draft Withdrawal Agreement struck between her government and the EU was rejected by the House of Commons by 432 votes to 202 last month.She is seeking reassurances on certain elements of the deal, in particular the backstop related to Northern Ireland. European leaders have repeatedly said the deal cannot be renegotiated. Many politicians have raised concerns about the backstop element of the deal, which aims to avoid a hard border between the Republic and Northern Ireland and could see the North stay aligned to some EU rules.The Democratic Unionist Party, which campaigned in favour of Brexit and props up May’s minority government, believes the backstop threatens the United Kingdom and could lead to a trade border in the Irish Sea.Seeking a delay If May fails to get the House of Commons to back a deal, MPs are expected to vote on 13 and 14 March on whether to leave the EU with no deal, or to seek a delay.“The government’s policy is to get the legally binding changes so a deal can be brought back to this house … and we can leave on March 29 with a deal,” May said ahead of the vote.Any delay must be approved by the other 27 EU member states. Some of the bloc’s leaders have questioned whether a short delay would achieve much. “We don’t need more time: what we need most of all is a decision,” French President Emmanuel Macron said after meeting German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Paris.“If Britain needs more time, then clearly we shall not refuse,” added Merkel, without mentioning conditions.In Madrid, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said: “Although Spain will not oppose granting a possible extension, this must have an assured perspective of resolution.”EU citizens’ rights May has repeatedly ruled out delaying Brexit, even after her deal was overwhelmingly rejected by MPs in January.Her u-turn yesterday prompted outrage among Tory hardliners, with Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg warning that “any delay to Brexit is a plot to stop Brexit”.However, May’s change of plan averted a rebellion by pro-Europeans who fear economic chaos if Britain ends its 46-year-old relationship with the EU without a deal.In a rare moment of unity, MPs approved without a vote an amendment seeking to protect the rights of 3.6 million Europeans living in Britain, and more than one million Britons living in EU countries.It calls on the government to make efforts to preserve the rights of those expats set out in the divorce agreement, even in a no-deal scenario.Conservative MP Alberto Costa said his amendment “does not deal in goods or services, backstops or borders, but people, living and breathing, skin and bone”. Costa was forced to quit as a junior minister because he was not technically allowed to put forward the amendment.MPs also rejected a Scottish National Party motion which stated that the UK should not leave the EU without a deal “under any circumstances” – by 324 votes to 288.Contains reporting from © AFP 2019  center_img 20 Tory MPs who voted against Cooper amendmentAllanBaronBlackmanCashChishtiDavid T.C.

Cleaner snapped and slapped 11 yearold girl after drink poured on his

first_imgCleaner ‘snapped’ and slapped 11 -year-old girl after drink poured on his wife Redas Jonka (43) was spared conviction over the incident at SkyCourt shopping centre in Shannon. By Gordon Deegan Thursday 12 Sep 2019, 7:58 PM Ennis District Court Image: Shutterstock/shutterupeire https://jrnl.ie/4806929 Share31 Tweet Email1 Image: Shutterstock/shutterupeire Thu 7:59 PM center_img 91,182 Views 44 Comments Ennis District Court Short URL A 43-YEAR old cleaner who “snapped” when slapping an 11-year-old girl across the face with his open hand after he saw the child pour liquid over his distressed wife has escaped a conviction.In the case at Ennis District Court, father of one, Redas Jokna of Ballycasey Crescent, Shannon pleaded guilty to the assault of the local child on September 8th 2018 at the SkyCourt shopping centre in Shannon.However, Judge John King didn’t convict Mr Jokna and instead imposed the Probation Act and ordered him pay €500 to the Poor Box.This was after gardaí confirmed that there was provocation before the assault and a number of businesses at the SkyCourt shopping centre provided letters of support for the Lithuanian.Judge King told the court: “You can’t hit an 11-year-old child no matter what.”Both Mr Jokna and his wife work as cleaners for a cleaning firm at SkyCourt and solicitor for Mr Jokna, Tara Godfrey said that her client was subject “to severe provocation” while at work and “snapped” when slapping the then 11-year-old girl.‘Consistent bullying’Ms Godfrey said that there “had been a constant and consistent bullying of my client’s partner” by a group of youngsters frequenting SkyCourt and Mr Jokna took a distressed call on 8 September last year from his wife.In a statement to gardaí, Mr Jokna said that his wife was crying and distressed over the phone concerning a group of children and she told him “they are still abusing me”.Mr Jokna said that he arrived near the food-court where he saw a girl pour water from a drink container on his wife’s head.He said: “I asked them to leave and they said ‘you Polish* bastard, do you want some juice too?’” I got so angry I could barely remember anything.”Mr Jokna said after the incident, one of the children started crying and they all walked out.Mr Jokna told gardaí that his wife had juice on her chest and she had bits of pizza on her pants.Ms Godfrey said that the provocation is continuing. She said that in an incident in June “inflated condoms were being thrown at Mr Jokna, words are being expressed to him and he was still then suffering quite an amount of abuse”.She said that the 11-year-old injured party in the case this week at Lidl in Shannon jostled the shopping basket of Mr Jokna’s partner.Sgt Aiden Lonergan said that the 11-year-old girl has opted not provide a victim impact statement and the sergeant confirmed that there had been extreme provocation in the case.‘Sincere regrets’Ms Godfrey said: “My client sincerely regrets what he did. He shouldn’t have done what he did. He knows absolutely what he did was wrong.”Ms Godfrey said that a number of businesses at SkyCourt have provided references for Mr Jokna.Ms Godfrey quoted one retailer who said in a letter: “I do not agree that Mr Jokna’s course of action was right or proper, however, I do know that there is a constant issue with young teenagers misbehaving in the centre being abusive to cleaning staff and security staff.”Another retailer wrote to say: “We see Redas working incredibly hard despite sometimes having to deal with many challenging situations on a daily-weekly basis – abusive behaviour from young members of the public and people leaving the toilet in deplorable conditions.“I have witnessed on a regular basis the abuse that young members of the public give to other SkyCourt traders and the tremendous stress this puts us all under. Nobody should have to deal with this in their lives.”Another reference described Mr Jokna as ‘very dependable, courteous and a diligent worker’.The letter stated that these young people have been troublesome and a constant nuisance to the centre for some time and were barred from the centre at the time of the incident in September last year.Concerning the assault on the 11-year-old, Mr Jokna told Gardaí: “I regret my actions, I am not proud of them.”Ms Godfrey said that Mr Jokna has lived here for eight years and has no previous convictions and he and his partner have a ten-year-old child.Ms Godfrey said that after the incident, the man informed his bosses but he didn’t lose his job.  Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more
