“By introducing solar energy in remote rural villages, UNDP has been able to bring dramatic changes in the lives of the ultra-poor,” said Jorgen Lissner, UNDP Resident Representative in Bangladesh. “And this technology addresses local and global environmental concerns as well.”In Pouradubi, a village in the Himalayan foothills, a UNDP-assisted project has brought clean and renewable energy to 60 of the town’s poorest families, as well as to the homeless shelters. In the past, work and household chores, students’ homework and evening meals had to be completed before the sun went down. Now, such activities can be extended beyond daylight hours, UNDP said. The agency’s solar energy efforts, part of its “Sustainable Rural Energy Project,” extends to several rural growth centres in Bangladesh. In the remote village of Jhenidah in the western part of the country, there is now a centralized solar photovoltaic plant system with a capacity to produce 1.8 kilowatts of electricity – enough to power 45 shops, three small food-processing industries, a health centre and a mosque. Operation and maintenance of the plant has been entrusted to a local non-governmental at a cost of $2 per month per consumer.
According to the UN Mission in Côte d’Ivoire (MINUCI), the security ratings in four zones have been lowered. In the central and eastern part of the country, between Touba and Noebondouko, the level has been dropped from phase 4 – the suspension of all aid programmes other than those designated “urgent” – to phase 2, limited activities of UN personnel.In zone 3, which primarily covers Abidjan and its environs, the security rating has been lowered from phase 3, which calls for the relocation of UN staff, to phase 2.The security ratings for zones 2 and 4, covering the western and northern portions of the country, have similarly been eased.The UN Mission said it would continue to monitor the evolving military and political situation and will maintain its operational presence throughout the country.
Slower than expected restarts within the Japanese nuclear industry in the wake of the Fukushima disaster and a weak global economy have pushed Cameco to cut its long-term production goals.“We’ve seen the word uncertainty a lot over the past months to describe the state of the nuclear industry and that term has proven to be very accurate,” Cameco chief executive Tim Gitzel said Thursday.“While we can still clearly see positive growth in the long term it has been difficult to read the near term and although this remains true today we do have some clarity on certain issues that resulted in adjusting our plans.”The uranium miner (TSX:CCO) announced a cut its long-term production target to 36 million pounds of annual supply by 2018, down from 40 million pounds on Wednesday after it reported weaker than expected third-quarter results.However even with the lower production target, Cameco still expects to grow its production significantly from its current annual output of about 21.7 million pounds.Gitzel said the company was prioritizing its capital spending on its most promising projects.“We’ll continue with the remaining projects in a measured manner,” he said.“This approach should preserve our ability to respond with additional new production as quickly as possible if profitable to do so.”RBC Capital Markets analyst Fraser Phillips rated Cameco “outperform” with “above average” risk, but noted that the weak earnings and cut to the production outlook was a negative for the company.“Due to the revised market outlook, Cameco has decided to focus primarily on advancing its brownfield projects, while deferring development of its greenfield projects,” Phillips wrote in a note to clients.“This will lead to spreading out the capital spending over a longer period of time and decreasing project-related expenses.”BMO Capital Markets said it recently cut its own outlook for nuclear power and uranium demand, and forecast Cameco’s production reaching 30 million pounds by 2018.“With this outlook already baked into forecasts, BMO maintains its outperform recommendation for Cameco,” wrote analyst Edward Sterck, who had a $29 price target on the company.Late Wednesday, Saskatoon-based Cameco reported a profit of $82 million or 21 cents per share for the quarter ended Sept. 30, compared to $39 million or 10 cents per share for the same period a year earlier.Quarterly revenue came in at $408 million, compared to $527 million a year ago.Adjusted earnings for the quarter were $52 million or 13 cents per share compared to $104 million or 26 cents per share in 2011.The average analyst estimate compiled by Thomson Reuters had been for a profit of 27 cents per share and $562.3 million in revenue.Cameco said its earnings were impacted by lower uranium sales volumes, lower realized prices, higher costs and higher exploration expenditures.In August, Cameco signed a deal to buy one of Australia’s largest undeveloped uranium deposits for $430 million US.The company reached the agreement with BHP Billiton to acquire the Yeelirrie uranium project in Western Australia.Cameco is one of the world’s largest uranium producers with mines, mills and conversion plants in Canada, the United States and abroad.Shares in the company closed down 97 cents or five per cent at $18.40 on the Toronto Stock Exchange on Thursday.

In his address to the 71st annual debate of the UN General Assembly, Prime Minister John Key impressed on the world leaders that “it is our collective responsibility, as Member States [of the UN], to front up with the political commitment necessary to make the UN the body that we want it to be.” Referring to his country’s role in the UN Security Council, he added: “New Zealand is working for a Security Council that shows more leadership on the toughest political issues; that works harder to get the incentives right to broker solutions; and that is better at responding to political crises before they spiral out of control.” Mr. Key, however, also expressed that it is deeply troubling to see the Council fail to live up to its responsibilities on Syria. “Here, the Council has fallen short,” he said, adding: “Internal politics within the Council and the sheer complexity of the Syria crisis have obstructed a unified Council response.” Informing the General Assembly that New Zealand, as the current President of the Security Council, will convene a leaders-level meeting tomorrow on the situation in the crisis-struck country, he expressed hope that it will provide an opportunity for Council leaders to take stock of developments, examine the fundamental issues at the heart of the conflict, and discuss how a sustainable political solution can be reached. Speaking particularly on the use of veto in the Council, Prime Minister Key said: “No matter how hard we work to find compromises, time and time again we come up against the veto.”“The use of the veto; the threat of the veto. The exploitation of the veto is well beyond what the founders of the United Nations envisaged,” he stressed, stating that now is the time to move forward on Security Council reform. Turning to other parts of the UN system, Mr. Key noted that significant steps on development, climate, financing, and humanitarian and disaster risk reduction are of particular significance to small island developing States. Underlining that sustainable economic development, a key driver of global growth, prosperity and stability, requires a fair, rules-based trading system, more open trade and the removal of trade barriers, the Prime Minister called on the World Trade Organization (WTO) “to do more to set global trade rules.” “We need it to find common ground that overcomes vested national interests, and agree to new international trade commitments that benefit all countries,” he said, adding that protectionism will adversely impact the international community’s ability to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Turning to the selection of a new UN Secretary-General, Prime Minister Key said that next the UN chief must have the courage, experience and skills necessary to lead the organization and to keep it relevant and responsive. “We think it’s time for a Secretary-General like Helen Clark,” he said, noting that Ms Clark, the current Administrator of the UN Development Programme (UNDP), rallies people together to find the common ground, even when the issues are difficult and the differences vast. In conclusion, the Prime Minister of New Zealand said that he is proud of the contribution his country is making to the Security Council but noted that he is “keenly aware of the Council’s limitations.” Underscoring that it is the General Assembly that now needs to act to make the UN stronger and more relevant to the world, he said: “New Zealand is committed to the principles and values of the UN.”
Tonight’s NFC North showdown between Minnesota (2-2) and Chicago (1-3) will mark a potentially historic moment for the Bears as quarterback-of-the-future Mitch Trubisky will officially take the reins of the reeling franchise. But how much can we expect from the No. 2 overall pick in last year’s draft? Watch the video above to find out.
Marcus Grubb, Head of Investment for the World Gold Council, an organisation formed and funded by the world’s leading gold mining companies, has commented on the recent interest rate cut by the Bank of England: “[The] cut in interest rates by the Bank of England to 0.5% and its decision to increase money supply in the banking system by £75 billion, will remind investors of the spectre of future inflation and its eroding effect on wealth. With interest rates now at the lowest level in 300 years, investors are searching to find instruments with which they can protect their portfolio from inflation’s pernicious effects. Gold tends to rise in value when paper money loses its worth, so for retail and institutional investors alike, gold’s ability to preserve wealth will become even more attractive.”Grubb, on gold and inflation:“The value and purchasing power of paper currencies have declined over the years relative to gold, as most governments have decoupled their currencies from any real assets and many have suffered from high bouts of inflation“Gold is nobody’s liability – its value does not depend on someone’s ability to pay and it cannot be debased“Contrast gold with cash, bonds and equities whose value hangs on their issuers’ future ability to honour their obligations – and which can, in certain circumstances, become worthless.”
50 Comments “I tell some of the boys back home. At the Chiefs we had one person in the squad who went to school in Hamilton and that’s in the Super Rugby franchise. Here, you have five people who didn’t go to school in Dublin and they play for Leinster — it’s absolutely crazy.“Nowhere in the world do they have what Leinster has right now.”Cullen is digging deeper into his stocks, though.The midfield options are perilously low now that Rory O’Loughlin has entered the return to play protocols and scrum-half is an area of fresh concern following Luke McGrath’s knee injury. Updates will be provided later today. Source: Byran Keane/INPHOMcGrath had a scan on the problem yesterday and if the damage is serious, Cullen and Stuart Lancaster would have to drop one of Lowe or Fardy for the Champions Cup quarter-final against Saracens.An awkward selection headache which may not come to pass, but Jamison Gibson-Park’s promotion in the absence of McGrath would leave Leinster picking between their other Antipodean players. Needless to say, Lowe isn’t a fan of the regulations.“It sucks, eh?! They need to change the rule. Can we do it here? Put your hand up if you want three foreigners playing. Yeah! Alright. World Rugby, come on!“It is a shame, it’s only New Zealanders and Aussies! C’mon, something’s wrong there, eh? You can’t just single us out. I don’t like it.“I’ve played with Jamo back home — we’re the same age and played New Zealand U20s and we both didn’t make it.“It’s a good problem to have, because you’ve got three foreigners that want to play week in, week out so it depends on the balance of the team, the dynamic of the team and who comes back from internationals.“I remember the Edinburgh week, all three of us were named to start but we had to wait to see which internationals came back from camp to see who wasn’t playing. It’s a good problem to have, it’s just a shame we can’t play together — I like playing with Jamo.”The entertainment in the post-match press conference continued.“Cheers fellas, don’t write anything mean,” Lowe added, before exiting stage left.“Imagine if we read the paper one day and it was all positives…imagine that guys, I would buy it! I’d buy them all.”And off he went. Come back for more of the same next week.The42 is on Instagram! Tap the button below on your phone to follow us!

Image: Byran Keane/INPHO Image: Byran Keane/INPHO Feb 19th 2018, 7:00 AM A BOX-OFFICE hit already, the James Lowe show is worth the admission fee alone. A maverick, an entertainer, a match-winner. The freewheeling Kiwi is having a transformative effect on Leinster, both on and off the field.Five tries in six appearances barely scratches the surface. His brilliance adds a new dimension to Leinster’s attack, his enthusiasm, energy and exuberance within a dressing room contagious. The joker in the pack.He was brilliant on Saturday. A first-half brace in the 20-13 victory over the Scarlets proved crucial but Lowe’s overall contributions are proving invaluable. See his offload inside to set Luke McGrath away for the hosts’ third try. Or his innate ability to prise openings in the opposition defence. Or his 15 carries. All done with a smile.Socks rolled down, orange boots and the unravelling of the man-bun; Lowe’s play-off-the-cuff approach is breathtaking, refreshing and a joy to watch. He’s already a fan’s favourite. A collective gasp reverberates around the RDS when he gets his hands on the ball. Something always happens.The man of the match award was a foregone conclusion. Lowe finished twice in the same corner in the first 40, demonstrating his power and dexterity as he held off the attempted tacklers to ground for both scores, the second of which gave Leinster a lead they never relinquished.“Not too many hard questions please,” Lowe announced upon arrival into the media room at the RDS. A breath of fresh air, but don’t be fooled by the care-free, laissez faire demeanour. Winning is everything.“You have to win,” the 25-year-old says. “It’s not entertaining if you don’t win. It’s a team game, you’re based on performance and winning — Mondays are a lot grimmer at Leinster HQ.“Even when we win it’s a bit grim, you know? The boys need to smile more. Maybe that’s just me, I’d be a rubbish coach.”A coach’s dream, but also a nightmare. Some aren’t a fan and they’re quick to point out Lowe’s defensive frailties, but impulsive players, whose default setting is positivity, are a rare commodity.“Always, man,” Lowe replies, when asked if he’ll keep smiling the next time he makes a mistake. “It confuses everyone. ‘Shit, he’s done something wrong’ but I just smile about it anyway. Source: Byran Keane/INPHO“The way I relax is just to think about where you come from, what you’ve achieved so far, what you play for, who makes you happy, what makes you happy. I’m on the other side of the world playing rugby, I never in a million years as a 10-year-old thought I’d be playing for Leinster.“On the other side of the world, just having fun. That’s what you have to remember, I’m in a very privileged position and I know that. I do it with a smile on my face no matter what.”Lowe amuses and inspires his team-mates. Alongside Scott Fardy, the overseas pair played leading roles as Leo Cullen’s side opened up a three-point lead over Scarlets at the top of Pro14 Conference B. It was a result of considerable significance.While these international windows are when Lowe and Fardy are worth their weight in gold, Cullen could also derive huge satisfaction from the role his younger players had in the victory. Ed Byrne, Josh Murphy, Nick McCarthy and debutant Ciaran Frawley all stood up in different ways.Lowe has been blown away by the depth which exists at the province.“This is something I’ve never experienced and I don’t think there will ever be anything like what Leinster have at the moment,” he continued. “The amount of depth that this club has, the way they’ve been able to keep so many internationals is ridiculous. “The amount of young fellas who from a young age all they want to do is play for Leinster…I’ve never been anywhere in the world (like it).

Greenpeace lance la construction de son nouveau Rainbow WarriorPologne – Vingt-cinq ans après le naufrage du célèbre Rainbow Warrior, l’association écologiste Greenpeace a lancé à Gdansk, en Pologne, la construction de son successeur : le Rainbow Warrior III.Dans la nuit du 9 au 10 juillet 1985, des agents secrets français causaient le naufrage du Rainbow Warrior en posant des mines sur sa coque dans le port d’Auckland, en Nouvelle-Zélande. Greenpeace avait dépêché son navire dans la région afin de mener une flottille de protestation contre les essais nucléaires effectués par la France à Mururoa, en Polynésie française. L’un des membres de l’équipage, le photographe Fernando Pereira, était mort noyé, bloqué dans une cabine.À lire aussiLa mise à l’eau d’un navire-cimentier entraîne une gigantesque vagueVingt-cinq ans plus tard, à Gdansk, en Pologne, l’association écologiste a organisé une cérémonie lors de laquelle a été lancée la construction d’un nouveau navire amiral qui sera lui-aussi baptisé Rainbow Warrior. Ce bateau devrait être inauguré en octobre 2011, pour le quarantième anniversaire de Greenpeace. Il remplacera le Rainbow Warrior II, utilisé dans le cadre des campagnes de l’association depuis 1989.C’est la première fois que l’organisation Greenpeace construit elle-même un navire. Jusqu’ici, les Rainbow Warrior étaient d’anciens chalutiers réhabilités. Cette fois, le bateau de 60 mètres de long a été dessiné aux Pays-Bas, sa coque sera construite à Gdansk, et ses équipements seront installés en Allemagne. Le Rainbow Warrior III sera propulsé principalement par voile et énergie éolienne. Il sera également doté d’un moteur hybride diesel et électrique.Le 14 juillet 2010 à 12:17 • Emmanuel Perrin
Nike s’associe à TomTom pour des montres de sportifsLes deux marques ont travaillé sur des appareils spécialement destinés aux sportifs adeptes du running pour concurrencer le numéro 1 du GPS, Garmin.Face à Garmin, leader mondial du GPS personnel et des montres destinées aux sportifs, le concurrent TomTom s’est allié avec un grand nom du monde du sport, Nike. En janvier 2011, les deux firmes ont ainsi conçu la SportWatch, un appareil permettant de calculer le nombre de kilomètres parcourus ou encore les foulées des adeptes du running. Aujourd’hui, ce partenariat va plus loin avec le lancement d’une variante premier prix de cette SportWatch, avec un nouveau modèle strictement identique à l’existant, mais non livré avec le “shoe pod” qui permet de compter les foulées en intérieur, certains coureurs ne s’entraînant qu’en extérieur ou disposant déjà de chaussures Nike qui l’intègrent, explique Clubic.Vendue 150 euros, cette Nike + SportWatch peut recevoir le “shoe pod” pour 20 euros de plus, soit quand même 30 euros de moins que le modèle original lancé à 200 euros. TomTom et Nike en ont également profité pour annoncer l’arrivée imminente d’une mise à jour majeure du site Nike +, sur lequel les coureurs consultent leur historique et défient d’autres sportifs. Enfin, le micrologiciel des montres leur permettant de prendre en charge les bandeaux Nike + FuelBand, qui permet de calculer l’énergie dépensée, sera aussi mis à jour.Le 10 juin 2012 à 21:00 • Maxime Lambert
Cristiano Ronaldo will take the final steps towards completing his €112m move to Juventus from Real Madrid by undergoing a medical on Monday morning, reports Sky SportsThe Portugal captain will arrive at the club’s training centre in Vinovo to take part in a medical examination before finalising his shock move to the Serie A champions.Ronaldo will then face the media in his first official press conference as a Juventus player.Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.The 33-year-old decided that the time had come to end his nine-year stay at Real and wrote a heartfelt letter to confirm that it had been him that had asked for the transfer as “the time has come for a new cycle”.The forward also announced that his life at the Spanish capital was “possibly the happiest of my life”.In the end, Ronaldo leaves the European champions with an all-time club record of 450 goals in just 438 games and with 15 pieces of major silverware.
Former Borussia Dortmund midfielder Kevin Kampl explained why his stay at the club only lasted eight monthsThe Slovenia international arrived at Signal Iduna Park in January 2015 from RB Salzburg for €12m.However, Kampl rejoined boyhood club Bayer Leverkusen in August that year after Dortmund finished a lowly seventh in the Bundesliga.“I came to the BVB at a difficult time. We were sitting 17th in the league. Everything wasn’t going as it should,” Kampl told Goal and Spox.“We finished seventh in the end, but generally, it was a very difficult season for us and for me personally. I came from Salzburg to Dortmund.“That was a huge leap for me. Nevertheless, I played almost every game and felt well.”Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.Kampl asked then-Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel for his permission to be reunited with old coach Roger Schmidt at Bayer Leverkusen.“Roger Schmidt really wanted to bring me to Leverkusen. He was like a mentor to me in Salzburg,” said Kampl.“So I asked Mr. Tuchel for permission to join Roger Schmidt. He understood that a player sometimes meets a coach in his career to whom he develops a special bond.“For me, it was the best decision to go to Leverkusen, because I really blossomed there again. That is why I’m grateful to Mr. Tuchel to this day.”Kampl made 19 appearances in total for Dortmund before spending the next two seasons at Leverkusen.The 28-year-old now plays for fellow German side RB Leipzig.
BNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed. — File photoBNP on Saturday demanded that the election commission immediately stop the ‘wholesale’ arrest of its leaders and activists, release its arrested men and reshuffle the local administration.”Police drives continue across the country…the wholesale arrest continues. Our leaders and activists can’t stay at their houses. But there’s no remedy,” BNP standing committee member Moudud Ahmed told reporters after a meeting between a BNP delegation and chief election commissioner KM Nurul Huda and his colleagues.Moudud led the BNP team at the meeting that lasted for over two hours from 3pm at the Nirbachan Bhaban in the city.The BNP leader said their seven probable candidates have already been arrested and sent to jail. “It has become difficult to get bail of our leaders and activists from the lower court as it remains under the control of the government,” he added.”We think there’s no minimum environment for holding a fair election in Bangladesh. The atmosphere is getting worse day by day. The election commission has failed to resist the government’s move to implement its blueprint,” said Moudud.In a letter submitted to EC, BNP also demanded withdrawal of controversial officials of the election commission, public administration and home ministries and the police headquarters as well as the field-level ones.”The deputy commissioners, superintendents of police, deputy commissioners in metropolitan areas, who are staying for more than two years in their existing workplaces, must be withdrawn,” BNP told the EC.Besides, all upazila nirbahi officers and officers-in-charge of police stations will have to be transferred, the party said.About their demand for reshuffle in the administration, Moudud Ahmed said the existing civil administration and police administration are pre-set one by the government.Deputy commissioners and upazila nirbahi officers are respectively returning officers and assistant returning officers. “Although they belong to the mainstream bureaucracy, they play a very crucial role in the election. Similarly, SPs and OCs also play the important role in the election,” he added.Moudud said all of them — DCs, UNOs, SPs and OCs — are working under the government. “A political government is in power now. All ministers and MPs can enjoy all privileges and use their power. So, it’ll in no way be possible to ensure a level-playing field in this circumstance,” he said.He said the commission could have stopped the wholesale arrest and reshuffled the administration to make the polls atmosphere effective.”The election will finally be a farce. But we don’t want the polls to turn into a farce. It’s the last test for our nation. If we can’t overcome the test, we don’t think we’ll be able to restore democracy in Bangladesh,” he said.Moudud said the election commission assured them of taking measures over their demands.The BNP delegation members include its election steering committee chief Nazrul Islam Khan, standing committee members Mirza Abbas and Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury, and BNP chairperson’s adviser Abdul Awal Mintoo.
Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Science fiction has been fairly grim lately. Between Black Mirror and Altered Carbon, crushing dystopias have ruled the day. Even Star Trek: Discovery, as much as I liked it, delivered a darker, warlike look at the Federation than we’re used to. Maybe it’s the times we’re living in, but you just don’t see the optimistic, hopeful, exploratory sci-fi of decades past much anymore. That’s what makes most of the trailer for Netflix’s reboot of Lost in Space feel so fresh. It’s embracing the wonder and curiosity that the original series had. I mean, we know it’s all going to go wrong, and it does right at the end, but right up until that moment, it feels almost hopeful.Lost in Space is a cheesy sci-fi classic that took a family to incredible new worlds. It doesn’t look so hot now, but you can still see why the show captured everyone’s imaginations 50 years ago. This looks to be a bit less campy, but they appear to be avoiding the dark and gritty route. The opening narration is full of hope and worry and duty, which is the entire reason the Robinson family goes on their mission in the first place. It does sound like it’ll be a bit scarier at times, and the Robot’s voice is much less silly, but there’s definite opportunity here for fun, upbeat, awe-inspiring sci-fi if it’s done right.And if there’s any series that deserves another shot at a remake, it’s this one. They previously tried to make an updated Lost In Space movie back in 1998. It starred William Hurt, Mimi Rogers, Heather Graham and Matt LeBlanc. It was… oh man, was it bad. It was a movie where LeBlanc and Graham awkwardly flirted with each other via Looney Tunes characters. It was a movie where, at the emotional climax of the story, Hurt looked deep into Rogers’ eyes and said “I love you, wife.” At least it was a fun kind of bad, but yeah. This series deserves another try.Will it be better than the 1998 movie? It’s hard to tell from this trailer. I love the tone so far though, and it’ll at least be cool to see what alien worlds they can visit with 2018 technology. Lost in Space will premiere on Netflix April 13.

A gold Roman coin has just set a new record at auction. Many a metal detectorist is fueled by fantasy, but one 30-year-old man succeeded beyond many people’s dreams when a coin he found in March 2019 in a field in Kent, England, turned out to date to the 3rd Century Roman Empire and was recently sold for $700,000 in auction. The 1,700-year-old coin, an ancient Roman aureus, shows the face of Allectus, a finance minister in Roman Britain who usurped the crown when he took out Emperor Carausius. The gold coin from his reign is considered rare, and a bidding war defied the auctioneer’s estimate for the piece and set new records. It is the most money ever paid for a coin depicting Allectus and is reportedly the most valuable Roman coin minted in Britain to have been sold at auction.The coin found. Photo courtesy Dix Noonan Webb auctions.“After fierce competition in the room, on the internet and on the telephone, it was bought by private collector bidding on the telephone,” said the auctioneer DNW. “The detectorist, who has followed the pursuit for seven years, wishes to remain anonymous but commented after the sale: ‘I cannot believe it, we are ecstatic! We expected it to sell for a little over estimate, but not five times the estimate! We are sharing the money with the farmer, who is also thrilled!’ ”AdChoices广告inRead invented by TeadsThe detectorist had secured the owner’s permission to investigate the land, which is near an old Roman road. The coin was authenticated by the British Museum and described as an exceptional find.Related Video:Emperor Allectus has been humorously touted as “the first Brexiteer” because he took Britain out of the Roman Empire during his reign from 293 AD to 296 AD. He is best known for his attempts to lead a rebel empire, effectively annexing Britain from Rome. However, Allectus was killed in battle after Constantinus’s army arrived in Britain to deal with him. Constantinus was the father of Constantine the Great, the first Roman emperor to convert to Christianity.Head of emperor Constantine I. Photo by Jean-Pol Grandmont CC by SA 3.0Roman rule continued in Britain until the early 5th century AD, when because of economic decline and the collapse of the empire the Roman officials withdrew.As Christopher Webb, Director and Head of DNW’s Coin Department, said: “I am delighted with the phenomenal price achieved in today’s sale. This is the most expensive coin that we have ever sold at Dix Noonan Webb – as well as being one of the world’s most expensive Roman coins, it is the most money ever paid for a coin of Allectus and it is now the most valuable Roman coin minted in Britain to have been sold at auction. It was a unique opportunity to acquire a stunning coin and the only other one known struck from the same pair of dies is in the British Museum.”Christopher Webb, director of Dix Noonan Webb’s coin department. Photo courtesy of Dix Noonan Webb.He continued: “There are only 24 aurei of Allectus known worldwide. Gold coins were initially produced to pay an accession donation in AD 293 but continued to be issued throughout his reign and were probably demonetized after his death in AD 296, as no coins of Carausius or Allectus are found in later hoards.”Related Article: Rare 14th Century Gold Coin Discovered in Bureau’s Secret DrawerThe Antiques Gazette quoted the anonymous detectorist as saying that “at first we found bits of old tractors and shotgun cartridges, but after 45 minutes I found the coin.” Initially, he and his brother believed they had a gold sovereign, a coin from modern times. The man brought his discovery to the attention of the authorities as required by law.Nancy Bilyeau, a former staff editor at Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and InStyle, has written a trilogy of historical thrillers for Touchstone Books.

But the team didn’t work for Apple; they worked for Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., and under the close watch of Jobs and Apple’s iPad team, they were trying to create the first newspaper designed specifically for a tablet.The app would be called The Daily, and it looked like a tabloid come to life, with animated graphics and videos.”There were regular visits to Cupertino where we showed them new prototypes,” Jon Dobrowolski, who worked on The Daily as the head of product, said in an interview with Business Insider. “They would help us work through complex problems. We were doing things that hadn’t pushed the iPad that far.”It was clear Apple wanted The Daily to be a success as much as News Corp did. Jobs provided feedback on early versions of the app. There was a sense within News Corp. that Jobs would’ve been even more involved with the project if his health hadn’t started to seriously decline around the same time The Daily was gearing up to launch, Dobrowolski said.It would’ve been the ultimate proof that the iPad had a purpose, even if that purpose was a bit muddy at launch. As the iPod changed music industry and the iPhone changed telecommunications, the iPad would change news and publishing.In February 2011, a little more than a year after the original iPad launched, Murdoch, gathered a scrum of media and tech reporters at the Guggenheim in New York to unveil what he believed would be a transformative way to get news.Rupert Murdoch introduced The Daily in New York in 2010.Image credit: News Corp.For 99 cents a week or $39.99 a year, subscribers to The Daily would get an interactive reimagining of a daily news publication, full of interactive charts, video and other electronic goodies along with high-quality journalism from a newsroom packed with editors and reporters with impressive résumés.Apple’s iTunes boss at the time, Eddy Cue, was onstage as well, promoting the App Store’s new subscription model and giving his blessing to The Daily. He called the iPad a new category of device and boasted about the growing ecosystem of apps for it.”The iPad demands we rethink our craft,” Murdoch said from the stage.The Daily shut down less than two years later.It was the first sign that the promise of the iPad — that it would upend industries like book publishing, education, the news media and even video entertainment — would not come to pass. iPad sales have been in free fall since 2013. Ebook sales are plummeting by double-digit percentages as print books show a surprising renewed growth. Digital publishers have found more success on Facebook and other digital platforms, not tying their futures to one gadget. And despite a push to reinvent textbook publishing, Apple failed to make a dent in an industry controlled by big publishers.”The role of the iPad was probably vaguer than any product Apple launched,” said Jan Dawson, chief analyst at Jackdaw Research. “It wasn’t well defined.”And Apple is still trying to figure it out.This week, Apple will host its annual World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC), where it shows off new versions of the software that powers its products. There are also rumblings that we might get a look at a new iPad Pro model with a 10.5-inch screen and shrunken-down bezels aimed at transforming the iPad from a media-consumption device to one that could replace your laptop.But even Apple’s biggest fans have had doubts the iPad can be the new kind of computer the company wants it to be, and the onus is on Apple this week to put the tools in place to make it happen or risk failing to deliver on yet another promise.iPad sales have been declining since 2013.Publishing revolution?Even the support from Apple couldn’t save The Daily, and it’s a useful lesson in why some of the early hopes for the iPad never panned out.From the beginning, the app was plagued with bugs and crashes, which Dobrowolski blamed on the fact that the iPad was still essentially running software and chips designed for a phone.The production process wasn’t as easy as News Corp. thought it’d be. When The Daily launched, News Corp. executives claimed they’d save on overhead costs and production time because they didn’t have to print and deliver a physical newspaper. Each issue would magically show up on subscribers’ iPads instead.ScreenshotThe reality: It took a lot more work to produce each edition of The Daily than originally thought.Dobrowolski said the team would often work from 10 a.m. until 4 a.m. the next day, trying to get each issue out on time, wrestling with graphics and layout for both vertical and horizontal positions formats.It turned out that iPad publishing was a tricky process, and, in the end, the subscribers simply weren’t there, forcing The Daily to announce it was shutting down in December 2012, not even two years after its debut.No one tried anything on that scale again. The Daily was the most ambitious, but it wasn’t alone. Condé Nast and other major magazine publishers made efforts to transfer their portfolio of magazines to the iPad. But all those additional videos, graphics and animations could take up to a few gigabytes of memory with each issue, which turned out to be a bad experience since iPads had a measly 16 gigs to start with. Others were just PDF versions of the print magazine. Hardly revolutionary.After The Daily’s failure, Apple tried in 2012 to take on the lucrative textbook industry with another high-profile event in New York, the heart of the publishing industry. The company debuted iBooks 2, a new ebooks app that featured digital, interactive textbooks from a few major publishers. But Apple fell largely silent about its ambitions to “reinvent the textbook” after the event, and there’s scant evidence that publishers have embraced iBooks over print.”Apple hasn’t disrupted the textbook market at all,” Dawson said. “Textbooks are a very high-margin business for publishers, and there’s little incentive for them to sell on the iPad. Without having them on board it’s really hard to disrupt a market like that.”A new kind of computerApple now pitches the iPad as a device that can replace your laptop.Image credit: Tech Insider/Steve KovachBy the following year, the iPad saw its first sales decline, and it hasn’t recovered since. There were many factors to blame. Some said it was because people realized you don’t need to upgrade your iPad every year or two like you do with the iPhone. Others said Apple’s introduction of the big-screen iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus ate into iPad sales.So now we’re in the middle of another promise: The iPad as a laptop replacement. In 2015, Apple introduced the iPad Pro, adding more power, a larger screen and new capabilities thanks to a snap-on keyboard cover and $99 stylus called the Apple Pencil. CEO Tim Cook claimed in an interview before the Pro’s launch that the iPad Pro could do enough to replace a laptop.It was a remarkable pivot and the first time Apple explicitly claimed it had made a new kind of computer. Jobs and other Apple executives had always talked about the long-term prospects of the iPad as a new kind of PC, but the iPad Pro was the first model in the product’s five years that was being marketed that way.But critics, including some of Apple’s biggest defenders, aren’t totally buying it. Pro-Apple writer John Gruber wrote a long critique about the keyboard cover. “Trying to use the iPad Pro as a laptop with the Smart Keyboard exposes the seams of an OS that was clearly designed for touchscreen use first,” he wrote.Recode’s Walt Mossberg put it more bluntly, saying “because Apple hasn’t made a great keyboard, the iPad Pro isn’t a complete replacement for a great laptop like the MacBook Air.”It’s not just the hardware. While some apps like Microsoft Office have made it to the iPad, it’s still missing other essential productivity apps that could truly make it a laptop replacement. Much of the iPad app ecosystem is still populated with jumbo-sized iPhone apps, not the reimagined apps needed to take advantage of more screen space and extra power. The iPad’s split-screen feature helps a little, but it’s not enough.The benefits would be enormous — a device as powerful and capable as a laptop but packed in an ultrathin, portable package. No one has cracked that yet.”The big challenge is how to evolve iOS on an iPad in a way that feels natural in that setting,” Dawson said. “Apple has a tricky balancing act.”So now the pressure is on Apple to figure out where the iPad fits in. The iPad is far from a flop — any of Apple’s rivals would kill to have a product that sells around 10 million units per quarter — but it still hasn’t found a distinct purpose within Apple’s hardware ecosystem.While the iPad made a great consumption device, it failed to disrupt the media and publishing industries that Apple and its early partners first imagined. And in the nearly two years since the iPad Pro’s debut, it’s unclear how successful Apple can be with its next major promise: turning the iPad into a dream device that replaces your laptop altogether.As WWDC approaches, some are already speculating what Apple could do to take the iPad to the next level. (Scott Stein of CNET has a good piece on that very topic, where he suggests revamping the home screen, improving the Safari browser and more. It’s worth a read.) And if we do see new hardware, it’ll have to address the qualms critics have had with the keyboard.The iPad has proved itself to be magical and successful. The next step is to prove it can be revolutionary. 10 min read
