The former Clonmel Estate could have a date with the wrecking ball depending on what happens in the days and weeks ahead.Owner Lynnee Steffler raised the prospect of demolition this week after Norfolk council unanimously denied a proposal to build 36 townhouse units in the front yard near the intersection of Prospect Street and Tisdale Road in Port Dover.Many consider Clonmel the grandest old mansion in Norfolk County. For more than a year, Steffler has been trying to convince the county that she needs to develop the three-acre property to support the ongoing operations of the 12,000-square-foot mansion.“What do you do with a property like this?” John Ariens of IBI Group, a planning consultant retained by Steffler, said.“It just can’t be a home for Ms. Steffler. That would be a terrible under-use of this wonderful property.”Steffler’s pleas hit a dead-end Tuesday as council voted 9-0 against her proposal.Steffler is not finished because she has options.She said there are deep-pocketed developers on deck who like the property and want to take advantage of the strong residential real estate market in Port Dover.“If I sell to a developer they may knock Clonmel down and there’s nothing anybody will be able to do about it,” Steffler said. “They will build affordable housing and they won’t give a crap what the neighbours think.”Another option is taking council’s decision to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal – the successor panel to the former Ontario Municipal Board.Steffler says LPAT officials are sympathetic to her plan because provincial policy supports infilling in urban areas, seniors housing, and developments which foster a sense of community.If Steffler appeals, she would approach LPAT with a Norfolk planning staff report that supports her application. She also has a thick file of planning justifications as well as engineering reports and architectural drawings.The Clonmel proposal was one of two major planning applications at council Tuesday that proposed changing an R-1 (single-family dwellings) zoning to R-4 (high-density townhouses, condominiums). Council denied both because it thought the proposed housing was too dense and potentially incompatible with the neighbourhood.In both instances, neighbouring residents were mobilized and vocal in their opposition.For her part, Port Dover Coun. Amy Martin said there were too many unanswered questions about the impact Steffler’s plan would have on nearby residents and the historic character of the oldest section of the Port Dover settlement.Steffler says she spent more than $100,000 preparing her proposal for a unanimous denial.After casting her vote against, Mayor Kristal Chopp said the county needs to come up with an application process that doesn’t drain the bank accounts of people who want to invest in Norfolk.Chopp says there has to be a way for people with big ideas to gauge their chances before spending thousands of dollars on consultants, studies, reports and planning fees.Steffler has had a run of bad luck with Norfolk County since she won a “hotel” designation on Clonmel a few months ago.The hotel designation was needed so Steffler could operate the mansion as a nine-unit bed-and-breakfast.Since then, Norfolk’s building department has ordered Steffler to upgrade the electrical system, plumbing and install a sprinkler system as a public-safety measure.This week, Steffler says a Norfolk bylaw enforcement officer wrote her up for a zoning violation after the county learned that singer-guitar player Felicia McMinn of Port Dover recently recorded a live album at her home.

“It’s a moment of great new opportunities but also some significant new challenges, and I think it’s important that the international community and partners maintain their interest in Somalia and increase, if at all possible, some of the resources,” Nicholas Kay told reporters in New York.Mr. Kay, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and head of the UN Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM), stressed that increased resources are vital for humanitarian efforts, for building up the Somalia National Army (SNA) and for the African Union Mission in Somalia, known as AMISOM. Regarding reports that the UN may decrease its presence in the country amid attacks by Al-Shabaab, the envoy noted that the group has targeted the UN in the past and he suspects that that it will continue to do so. “The UN has no intention to withdraw from Somalia,” he stated. “Quite the opposite, we are expanding our presence on the ground. As we speak, we have more UN people and more UN agencies present in Mogadishu and elsewhere in Somali. I fully expect that that expansion of presence will continue. Our resolve is very, very strong.”Mr. Kay, who is at UN Headquarters along with AMISOM chief Mahamat Saleh Annadif for discussions with the Security Council, noted that the world body has a “unique collaboration” with the AU in Somalia, and “an extremely successful one” to date.“We are at a time of some significant and quite remarkable success being made on the ground, particularly on the military campaign against Al-Shabaab,” he stated. The SNA and AMISOM have been pursuing a renewed offensive against Al-Shabaab, which in 2011 was forced to retreat from the capital. The offensive, the most significant and geographically extensive military advance since AMISOM was created in 2007, has resulted in the Federal Government regaining access to 10 towns. “It is giving us the opportunity now to support the Federal Government to provide better lives for the people in these areas, 10 towns of which now have been made accessible,” said Mr. Kay. “And it is a significant opportunity to disable and reduce the capabilities significantly of Al-Shabaab to pose terrorist threats in Somalia and in the region.”At the same time, new challenges have arisen, the envoy noted. While the Government has control of 10 new towns across a geographically wide area, access is a challenge given that Al-Shabaab is blockading many of the road routes to the towns. As such, there is a great need for air assets, particularly helicopters, to reach these areas. AMISOM currently has no helicopters. Mr. Kay also cited a potential humanitarian challenge due to three factors: the blocking by Al-Shabaab of land routes needed to supply food to towns; the possible impact of the military offensive on planting and eventual harvesting; and unknown climatic conditions. Somalia had a terrible famine over two years ago in which half a million people died, the Special Representative recalled. “We are not in that situation yet, but we are watching very carefully the evolution of the situation over the next couple of months,” he said, stressing the need for greater humanitarian funding. To date only 12 per cent of the $933 million sought for humanitarian operations in the country has been provided.“If we were to face an acute food problem in the next few months, we do not have the money in the kitty to respond.”
A new year brings convenient new opportunities for the community to participate in Brock University events.University Tickets, an online ticketing platform, is now live and supports a simplified way to purchase tickets to Brock events.The initial roll-out of the platform will include tickets for the second half of the Brock Badgers varsity athletics season. Traditionally, tickets for Badgers games had to be purchased in person, but the new system allows for the online purchase of electronic tickets, which can then be scanned at the entrance to the games.“University Tickets supports our goal of engaging the community with an improved customer service experience,” says Emily Allan, Associate Director, Brock Sports. “We have a tremendous amount of talent on our teams and we want to invite the community to come take in a game. Between the new ticketing system and our free evening parking in Zone 1, it has never been easier.”Brock’s Ancillary Services will manage the University Tickets platform for Brock Sports events and events across the wider Brock community.

The crowning achievement of Google’s budding social network by far is the ability to communicate with up to nine other people across the world instantly, and for free. Since the arrival of Hangouts, Google+ users have done everything from communicate casually to conduct trans-continental business meetings. There’s no limit to what those nine people can do, or how long they can do it. To make things even better, users can even enter a Hangout from an Android or iOS device, be that a tablet or a phone.If you are an active Google+ user, you may consider how well your next device performs in a Hangout as a tie breaker when choosing your next gadget. Over the last week, we’ve gathered the top devices across manufacturers, operating systems, and mobile networks and put them all to the test. So, what is the best phone or tablet for a Google+ Hangout?NEON VS Non-NEONOn paper, most of the hardware required for a Hangout is the same across most of the smartphones capable of joining the Hangout. For the most part, you’d think that the better camera, or the higher quality microphone setup would be the qualities you would look for in terms of what would be best for a Hangout. At the core, what you are really looking for is a chipset that supports hardware acceleration, specifically for video. This architecture type is called NEON. A device with NEON architecture enhances video encoding or decoding, graphics in things like games, and image/speech processing. NEON devices will handle Hangouts much better than non-NEON devices.If you have an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S, your device supports the NEON architecture. For Android devices, you’ll need to do some checking to see if it is supported. Using either a file manager on your device, locate a file called /proc/cpuinfo and open it. If you are unable to access this file from your phone, you can download the Android SDK and access the file using the Android Debug Bridge. If you see the word neon on the Features line, then your device supports NEON extensions.PhonesTo measure which device performed the best overall in a Hangout, each device was put through a series of tests. Each device was tested indoors and outdoors in a variety of situations including wind, conversations happening in the background, multiple people addressing the Hangout, and alone in a quiet room. Conversations in the Hangout were also measured for quality consistency. Each of the devices were tested individually, and each of them were tested in as similar a fashion as possible.This test yielded several interesting results. HTC and Samsung devices of the same generation performed almost identically, with a single exception. The results from the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in a Hangout were wildly varied. In some tests, the results would be great, while in practically identical situations the Galaxy Nexus was nearly unusable. Motorola’s two most recent devices, the Droid 4 and the Droid Razr, also showed a significant variety in results. Despite being the newest in their lineup, the Droid 4 was by far one of the worst performing devices in every situation.When comparing the iPhone to the Android batch, the iPhone 4S performed well above most of the Android devices, but struggled with noise cancellation in most situations. If there was wind or other people talking, the phone was often unable to handle the distortion and the audio would suffer. The phone that performed best out of the devices tested was the Samsung Galaxy Note. The high resolution of the screen allowed for a very clear and very large image of the other users in the Hangout, while the microphone placements on the device allowed for sound cancellation and external noise suppression.TabletsThe birth of the mobile OS inside a larger glass slab gives us access to devices that we can both set in a stand on our desk to admire, as well as take with us anywhere. Unfortunately, when it comes to hardware, most of these tablets really are just giant phones. Because of this, the Hangout experience on a tablet is typically the same as the experience on the phone. In most cases, the front facing cameras and the microphones are even the same as what is seen in their phone counterparts. Still, as more tablets are sold every day, it is important to know which delivers the best experience.As with the phones, the current generation of devices outperformed the previous generation, with a few outliers. The HTC Flyer, having recently been upgraded to Honeycomb, took a serious performance hit when the upgrade happened, leaving the device much slower and seriously affecting the quality of things like Hangouts. The Motorola Xoom running Android 4.0 would load the hangout quickly, but the quality of the video and audio made it seem like the tablet was constantly in a bathtub. The Xyboard and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 were the best of the Android Tablets, but neither handled background noise very well.The tablet that performed the best in every situation was the iPad 2. The lack of an LTE radio in the iPad 2 makes Hangouts outside less than great if the Hangout is full, though aside from not being able to filter out wind the iPad still outperformed the others by a healthy margin.Final ThoughtsWhether you are a casual user, or someone who has decided to make the service part of your daily routine, Hangouts will continue to play an active role in Google+. There are plenty of services out there that offer bits and pieces of what is being offered by Hangouts, but none so far have been able to compete with the stability and quality found in this service. Over the next year we will start to see faster processors, better front facing cameras, possibly even LTE for Apple devices, and that is going to further shape how Hangouts are being used. With that in mind, it is not hard to see when someone would want their next gadget to be “Hangout ready”.
It seems like you can’t walk down the street these days without some smartwatch startup jumping out of an alley and demanding you contribute to a Kickstarter campaign. Well, the folks from Central Standard Timing are taking a different approach with their Kickstarter watch project. The CST-01 is being billed as the world’s thinnest watch, and it’s getting a ton of attention.The CST-01 doesn’t have a bunch of wireless bells and whistles — in fact, it doesn’t even have an alarm. All this watch does is tell you the time, but it does so with style. The CST-01 is constructed on top of a 0.7mm thick stainless steel band, which is etched 0.5mm down. This groove is then filled with the scant electronics and E Ink screen that make up the CST-01. The final product is 0.8mm thick, which is pretty impressive.Because this watch is using E Ink and doesn’t really have any smart functions, it can run for at least a month on a single charge and should last for 15 years. It comes with a neat-looking inductive charging dock that can fill the battery in just 10 minutes. The dock is actually used to set the time in addition to charging the watch.Central Standard Timing is planning on making a white and black version of the CST-01, and you can still save your place in line. For $129 you can get a CST-01 watch and charging dock in either color. $229 gets you one of each color and one dock. The limited $99 “early bird” tier is already sold out, as is the $1,000 beta watch deal.The CST-01 just launched a week ago, but is already well past its $200,000 goal. Actually, it’s more than doubled that with about $445,000 in pledges so far. The Kickstarter will wrap up on February 22 with watch delivery estimated to happen in September.via Kickstarter

Large-scale logging on the Yukon River started about a hundred years ago, when steamships burned a cord of wood per hour to power their engines. Village residents clear-cut wide swathes of forest along the river, but the logging tapered off when ships switched to diesel. These days, villages like Galena are once again looking to the forest for an energy supply.But this time around, a new generation of loggers is thinking more about sustainability in how – and why – they harvest trees from around their communities.Listen now:Bubba Aloysius of Galena works from the cab of the dangle head processor. Photo: Tim Bodony/KIYU.The first sizeable timber harvest in decades is now underway just west of Galena, in low-lying cottonwood-dominated forest. It’s a patchwork of spindly, tangled undergrowth and scattered pockets of mature cottonwood trees.Bubba Aloysius is at the controls of a danglehead processor, plucking one tree at a time from one of these pockets. It is only his second day on the job, but he already talks like an old pro.“It’s your basic excavator controls as far as the boom attachment and all that, then you have you button controls which control the implement itself, grapple arms, the wheel, the measurement, the saw, the way it turns.”Bubba Aloysius operates the danglehead processor in the timber harvest area west of Galena. Photo: Tim Bodony/KIYU.It’s a far cry from the two-person whipsaws that were the tool of choice in the last logging boom a hundred years ago. The business end of this rig is a sort of Swiss Army knife of logging tools: a chain saw, grappling arms, and ferocious looking wheels with sharp teeth that can strip bark and snap off branches.Aloysius maneuvers the controls to grab a tree, and then cuts it down in just a few seconds.Aloysius has operated all kinds of heavy equipment on construction projects and oil field work, but feels like this job is different.“It’s something that has got to be done around here. It’s good for the future of Galena, and I wanted to be the man to do it.”The harvested wood is part of a plan to bring long-term economic stability to Galena, by switching the former Air Force Base from diesel heat to wood. The base is home to the Galena Interior Learning Academy – a boarding school and the major employer in town.Photo: Tim Bodony/KIYU.A new group called Sustainable Energy for Galena Alaska is in charge of supplying the wood. But without any experience with industrial logging, the group had to bring in some experts like Shawn Champagne, who is involved with the biomass energy project in Tok.Champagne says a big part of his job is to teach experienced equipment operators to become responsible foresters.“Your job changes every day, and you feel like you’re doing a good job. You feel like you are helping Mother Nature. In the old times, fires redid everything. And now that we are stopping the fires, the forests are dying from being too old. So a good forester will tell you that logging is beneficial to the woods – if you do it right.”Tim Kalke is trying to make sure the timber harvest is done right. He manages the logging operation, and wants to make sure that his crew is picking the trees that will fit nicely in the wood chipper later on, but also choosing to leave some trees behind as habitat for birds and other animals.Kalke is also a high school teacher. He recently brought his natural resource management students out to the harvest site for a lesson on how logging can be sustainable.“I told them the other day that they were the last students to stand in that patch of trees. And they all looked at me with kind of a horrified look, because it was beautiful and it was nice. And then I said, ‘for about 45 years.’ And they made that connection, ‘…Wait a minute, you know, we are using this local resource, as a fuel, and it’s renewable, it’s gonna come back, if we do it right.’”Students in the school’s vocational program may also get some hands-on experience with turning local timber into finished products. Cottonwood is relatively soft and doesn’t splinter, making it a good choice for things like picnic tables and railings.Back at the rig, Aloysius spins the wheels of the processor and 30 feet of tree shoots out the other side.Then the chain saw quickly slices through the tree, and another stick of cottonwood joins the growing pile.Aloysius and his crewmates are trying to finish the timber harvest before Christmas… not that cold weather would bother him in the cab of the danglehead processor, which features a very nice heater, a comfortable seat, cup holders and a radio – even more stuff that loggers didn’t have a hundred years ago.
Facebook open-sourced a new library Fizz (a TLS 1.3 library) for securing websites against cyberattacks and improving its focus on safe data traversal across the internet. TLS 1.3 is now taking good shape, as Facebook has claimed that it’s secured and running more than 50% of its web traffic via TLS1.3 and Fizz. Since the Facebook infrastructure is so widespread, a protocol like the TLS is of much importance. Solving the SSL issues of both latency and data exposure, the TLS protocol also uses a stronger encryption for messages to maintain the privacy of certificates and redesigns the way secret keys are derived while using a zero round-trip connection setup to accelerate requests. Thus, TLS overcomes the shortcomings of the previously used SSL protocol. What problem does Fizz solve for Facebook? Assisting the Internet Engineering Task Force’s efforts to improve the TLS protocol, Fizz will now play its own part. One of the major issues faced by the engineers at Facebook was writing data to huge chunks of memory. This led to an increase in resource overhead and reduced the servers’ speed. To combat this issue, Fizz will divide the data into smaller chunks and then move it into memory while encrypting it in place. This simple technique called as “Scatter/gather I/O” processes data much more efficiently. Scatter/Gather I/O Source: code.fb.com The next big thing that Fizz aims to do is replace the previously deployed Zero protocol with TLS 1.3. The zero protocol enabled Facebook to experiment with the 0-RTT secure connections. The 0-RTT reduced the latency of requests and the overhead needed to deploy TLS. Fizz has now taken over the zero protocol by providing zero copy encryption and decryption, tight integration with other parts of the infrastructure while reducing usage of memory and CPU. This improves user experience, particularly on app startup when there are no existing connections to reuse. All this is done at the same speed as the zero protocol but provides a 10-percent higher throughput. In today’s world, servers are scattered everywhere! Keeping in mind that these servers usually want to be able to make calls to services in other locations in the middle of a handshake, asynchronous IO becomes very important. Fizz, therefore, provides a simple async application programming interface (API). Any callback from Fizz can return an asynchronous response without blocking the service from processing other handshakes. It is also very easy to add new asynchronous callbacks to Fizz for other use cases. Fizz also provides developers with easy-to-use API’s to send “early data” immediately after the TCP connection is established. Early data reduces the latency of requests. Fizz is comprised of secure abstractions. This helps catch bugs during compile time rather than at runtime, thereby preventing mistakes. This open source provision from Facebook aims to be better than its SSL predecessor at preventing attacks. It would be interesting to see how the crowd takes advantage of the library!
