Holly Moore, Laurie HamelinAPTN National NewsA group of women’s rights advocates rallied outside the Kelowna RCMP detachment Tuesday to protest the police force’s handling of a sexual assault complaint in 2012.The protest comes a week after APTN News released exclusive video footage of an RCMP officer interrogating the alleged victim.“We need the RCMP to start respecting our women. Our women, in Indigenous Nations and Indigenous communities, Indigenous culture, are sacred. They’re life givers,” said MMIWG advocate Jody Leon.“And for the RCMP to treat an Indigenous girl who’s going to tell her story with disrespect perpetuates the ability for others in society to look at Inigenous women as if we’re lower beings.”email@example.com@bhobbs22
OTTAWA – Updates to the social safety net and protections for workers have yet to keep pace with tectonic shifts in the labour market, the country’s labour minister says, highlighting the challenge facing world leaders gathering in Canada and abroad this week.G7 leaders will be faced with the task of tackling the issue starting Friday when the annual leaders summit starts in Charlevoix, Que., with the Liberal government having prioritized the changing world of work as one of the gathering’s central topics for discussion.This week’s gathering in Switzerland of the International Labour Organization — the UN agency that sets international labour standards and promotes decent work — ended without consensus about how governments should respond to the rise of the so-called gig economy.The global labour market is challenging traditional standards that are based on workers holding full-time jobs, as well as the social programs such jobs usually produce, Labour Minister Patty Hajdu said in an interview from the gathering.“We’re proud of some of the social protections that Canada has in place, but … they are not rapidly evolving to address what one would consider to be these arrangements that make people more private contractors and less employees,” she said Thursday in a conference call.Federal officials have for years been studying how to respond to a rise of cross-border telework and more workers making money through platforms like Airbnb, Uber and others that may be beyond the government’s regulatory reach.A committee of deputy ministers also meets regularly to review economic trends and policies, and late last year was seized with how to respond to the growing automation of jobs and tasks that could make some workers obsolete.A presentation from the December meeting, prepared by the National Research Council, noted that cab and truck divers, construction and farm workers, factory machine operators and clerical jobs were most at risk of becoming automated by 2035.There is also little data about the size of an expanding online labour market where workers perform tasks from anywhere, for companies located around the world.“It’s very hard to regulate something when you don’t know how big it is,” said economist Armine Yalnizyan, who has studied the issue in depth.“The little we do know is that it is perhaps more important than we think for the evolution of the Canadian labour market.”Oxford University’s online labour index has estimated that Canada amounts for about five per cent of work postings on English-language platforms, with the biggest demands in the area of software development and multimedia productions.Yalnizyan, president of the Canadian Association for Business Economics, said the shift away from full-time office work may be the future of the labour force. The question for governments, she said, is how to enforce minimal labour and wage standards when there aren’t mutually agreed-upon global standards.There were multiple calls for countries to boost social protections for workers and provide citizens with guaranteed basic incomes during the ILO meeting of policy-makers and labour groups, but Hajdu said she wasn’t convinced that a basic income alone will effectively deal with a global labour market.“Those are the conversations that are really interesting and certainly just starting. No one has moved yet in terms of really addressing this in a formative way.”— Follow @jpress on Twitter read more
Rabat – Three-hundred Moroccan pilgrims spent a rough night on the Mecca streets on Wednesday after they were defrauded by an unidentified Saudi travel agency, reports Moroccan daily newspaper Assabah.Despite having paid the necessary expenses for hotel reservations, Moroccan pilgrimage-goers were left without shelter on the streets of the Muslims holiest site “in shocking conditions,” wrote the newspaper.The Moroccan pilgrimage arrivals were taken by surprise when they could not find their names included on the lists of hotel reservations, as they had already paid the necessary expenses, including accommodation and food. The 300 Moroccan pilgrims paid an amount of MAD 63,800 each for the stay.The pilgrims in question had paid the pilgrimage fees to a travel agency in Agadir, which had sent the pilgrims’ fees to the Saudi agency in charge of receiving the pilgrimage fees. However, the Saudi office reportedly failed in its task.Assabah reported that an investigation has been carried out by Saudi authorities in collaboration with Morocco in order to determine the circumstances of the issue.Saudi authorities arrested on Wednesday a suspect who used to work at the Saudi agency in question, added the newspaper.According to Assabah, the Moroccan Ministry of Tourism said that efforts have been made since Thursday to find a solution to the Moroccan pilgrims’ lack of shelter.It has been decided, for the time being, to house three pilgrims per room, while waiting for a solution. read more
The Police said that Rs. 15 million in cash and Rs. 500,000 worth of foreign currency bills and jewellery were also found in the luxurious house. Expensive gemstones were found in the house in Dematagoda where suspected pro-Islamic State members exploded bombs last Sunday.The Criminal Investigations Department found three gemstones worth more than Rs. 30 million from the house, the Police said.
Given the scale of killings, rape, looting and destruction of villages in Darfur, Sudan, the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) said today he anticipates the prosecution of a sequence of cases, rather than a single case, of possible war crimes in the conflict between the Khartoum Government, allied militia and rebels.“Identifying those persons with the greatest responsibility for the most serious crimes in Darfur is a key challenge for the investigation,” Luis Moreno-Ocampo said as he presented his latest report to the Security Council this afternoon. “The complexity of the conflict in Darfur exacerbates this challenge, given that it involves multiple parties, varying over time throughout the different states and localities.”The Council referred the matter, along with the names of 51 suspected perpetrators, to the ICC in March 2005, after a UN inquiry into whether genocide occurred in Darfur found the Government responsible for crimes under international law and strongly recommended referring the dossier to the ICC. The probe also found credible evidence that rebel forces were responsible for possible war crimes, including murder of civilians and pillage.So far, Mr. Moreno-Ocampo said, the Office of the Prosecutor (OTP) has been collecting evidence on the ground and from certain countries, but has been hampered by the security situation in Darfur itself.According to the report, the office has been able to document, however, thousands of alleged direct killings of civilians, including “a significant number of large scale massacres, with hundreds of victims in each incident,” targeting specific ethnic groups.“In most of the incidents where the OTP has collected evidence there are eye-witness accounts that the perpetrators made statements reinforcing the targeted nature of the attacks, such as ‘we will kill all the black’ and ‘we will drive you out of this land.’” There was also significant substantiation of thousands of civilians dying as a result of displacement and other hardships due to the conflict, as well as registration of hundreds of alleged cases of rape.Throughout his report, the prosecutor stressed the need for cooperation in order to ensure accountability not only for past crimes, but for present crimes within the Court’s jurisdiction that continued to affect the displaced populations in Darfur. “Our justice efforts should contribute to their protection and to the prevention of further crimes. We need information on groups that continue to attack them or to impede their access to humanitarian assistance,” Mr. Moreno-Ocampo told the Security Council, calling on the UN body to help his Office with obtaining that and other types of information regarding the investigation of the situation in Darfur. read more

Percent change-41.4%14.5%-2.6%-1.4%-37.6% Five or more DBs18.912.718.104.22.168 *YAC = Yards After CatchSource: ESPN Stats & Information Group Although Gronkowski’s ability to rumble downfield after the catch isn’t overly affected by facing more defensive backs — which isn’t a surprise when a man of Gronk’s size is facing tiny cornerbacks — and his average depth of target actually increases a lot (meaning he’s running deeper routes), Gronk’s ability to get open and make plays dips significantly when there are fewer mismatches to exploit in the opposing coverage. As a result, Gronk’s Adjusted Catch Yards (a measure of receiving productivity that gives bonuses for touchdowns and moving the chains) per route run are down nearly 40 percent against five or more DBs over the past three seasons. By comparison, the average NFL tight end only sees his Adjusted Catch Yards per route fall by about 18 percent under those circumstances.So in that sense, Ramsey is right. And given how dependent the Patriots are on Gronk’s stat-stuffing, Jacksonville could gain a disproportionate edge if Ramsey and his fellow DBs neutralize the Pats’ big, lovable human wrecking ball. Against the Jags in the first half of last year’s AFC title game, Gronkowski was limited to one catch on three targets, with zero touchdowns (before a concussion took him out of the game for the second half). Not coincidentally, between Gronk’s limited impact and subsequent absence, the Pats barely mustered enough points to pull past Jacksonville and make the Super Bowl.That said, it should be noted that even a Gronk limited by opposing defensive backs is better than just about every other tight end on the planet. Since 2016, Gronkowski’s Adjusted Catch Yards per route against five or more DBs (3.25) was still 30 percent better than the overall average for NFL tight ends (regardless of opposing coverage). To paraphrase Dan Patrick, you can’t truly stop Gronk; you can only hope to contain him. And that goes even for Jalen Ramsey. Avg. NFL TE-7.2%5.6%2.3%-30.8%-17.6% Gronk fares worse against more defensive backsChange in key receiving metrics for Rob Gronkowski by number of opposing defensive backs on the field, 2016-18 Four or fewer DBs32.322.214.171.124.2 Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is the NFL’s undisputed best at his position, and he might even be the best of all time. Well, OK, that’s according to most football-watchers. Not everyone is buying Gronk’s greatness — and by “not everyone,” I mean Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who was considered to be the best in the game last season. In an … ahem, wide-ranging interview with ESPN’s Mina Kimes last month, Ramsey had this to say about Gronkowski:“I don’t think Gronk’s good. Let me say — I don’t think Gronk is as great as people think he is.”With the Jags and Patriots lined up to play Sunday, that quote has seen plenty of recirculation. “It motivates you to hear that,” Gronkowski told reporters when asked about Ramsey’s remarks. But there is something to Ramsey’s criticism, even if it means that Gronk can be reduced to merely regular-dominant, rather than ridiculously so.Ramsey’s central critique of Gronk surrounds the way he feasts on linebackers and safeties but isn’t as dominant against cornerbacks. “Any time Gronk has been matched up with a corner, he’s had a very bad game,” Ramsey told Kimes, “and that corner has had a very good game.” This echoed Ramsey’s comments in an earlier GQ story — the guy really made the media rounds last month! — where he said, “I think I match up well against him. Gronk’s never played a corner like me.”As Kimes notes in her story, Gronkowski’s numbers do drop when he is lined up on the outside rather than in the slot. “His catch rate drops from 71 percent to 56 percent,” she writes, “which is lower than that of the average NFL tight end.” Ramsey himself referenced similar numbers from Jacksonville’s analytics department. With more defensive attention from coverage specialists, Gronkowski doesn’t get as many favorable matchups — and unequal matchups are what he thrives against.Using the same key receiving metrics we employed when assessing Falcons wideout Julio Jones’ greatness, here’s how Gronk’s production changes depending on how many defensive backs he has to face (which, presumably, increases the odds he’ll face a cornerback like Ramsey): Opposing DefenseTargets Per RouteAir Yds. per TargetCatches per TargetYAC* per CatchAdj.

Ahmadi and Afshar admitted having sex with the woman but said it was consensual.Khodagholi argued he was not the only one to film the events, and claimed he was unaware the victim did not want the images to be public.But prosecutors said the woman was “heavily drunk” and “under the influence of drugs”, which the men must have also noticed, the Uppsala district court said in a statement.“It’s not possible for a person in such a situation to consent (to sex),” judge Nils Palbrant said in a statement.The men were also ordered to pay damages totalling 335,000 kronor (€34,850 euros) to the victim.- © AFP 2017Read: Chicago police investigate alleged rape of teen streamed on FacebookRead: Gang rape in Sweden ‘streamed live on Facebook’ Tuesday 25 Apr 2017, 8:33 PM http://jrnl.ie/3358311 read more

Boris Johnson in the UK House of Commons (file photo) BRITISH CONSERVATIVE MP Boris Johnson has been criticised after suggesting that soldiers involved in Bloody Sunday could be charged with murder for political reasons.The former foreign secretary was responding to reports in Saturday’s Daily Telegraph that up to four ex-British soldiers could be charged with the deaths of 14 unarmed marchers in Derry in 1972.Writing in today’s edition of the newspaper, Johnson claimed that there would be “a storm of utter fury” if the four men were charged later this month while the government let former members of the IRA “get away with” their actions throughout the Troubles.“They did not get up in the morning with the intention of killing and maiming innocent civilians,” he wrote. Mar 4th 2019, 11:47 AM Are we really proposing to send old soldiers to die in jail – after we gave dozens of wanted terrorists a get-out-of-jail-free card under the Good Friday Agreement? Is that balanced? Is that fair?Although Johnson added that nobody should be exempt from justice, he claimed it was now impossible to know the truth about what happened on Bloody Sunday, suggesting that the marchers’ deaths could have been the result of “confusion and panic”.“The reason this whole thing stinks to high heaven – and the reason it should be denounced – is that there is absolutely nothing new for any trial to discover,” he said.“The whole thing has been chewed and chewed again, supermasticated to oblivion.”In a subsequent tweet, the former mayor of London also said that if the case went ahead, it would mean justice would be trumped by politics. 193,772 Views 112 Comments Boris Johnson in the UK House of Commons (file photo) Boris Johnson defends Bloody Sunday soldiers, and asks why the IRA ‘got away with’ Troubles crimes Four ex-British soldiers could be charged with the 1972 shooting of unarmed marchers.

Thursday 4 Apr 2019, 9:48 AM 13,486 Views Report finds RTÉ ‘seriously deficient’ and in breach of Irish language broadcast obligations ‘It was obvious that a ‘comprehensive range’ was not being provided in Irish,’ the investigation concluded. Apr 4th 2019, 9:48 AM By Conor McCrave AN INVESTIGATION BY the Official Languages Commissioner has found RTÉ’s Irish language programming is “seriously deficient” and in breach of its obligations under Irish law. Under the Broadcasting Act 2009, the national broadcaster is obliged to provide a “comprehensive range” of programming in both the Irish and English language that reflects “the cultural diversity of the whole island of Ireland”.To meet the requirement, RTÉ must provide coverage in areas of sports, religion and current affairs in both languages.However, in an annual report from An Comisinéir Teanga today, it was revealed that just 123 hours of Irish language programming were broadcast on RTÉ TV channels in 2017 – less than 1% of the total 18,657 hours broadcast that year.A complaint submitted to the languages commissioner prompted an investigation into the broadcaster in May 2018, who later found it was “seriously deficient and at odds with the will of the Houses of the Oireachtas”. “If a ‘comprehensive range’ of programmes was being provided in English, it was obvious that a ‘comprehensive range’ was not being provided in Irish,” the investigation concluded. Figures showed €177 million was spent on programming in 2017 with just €4 million or 2% of this being spent on Irish language programming. In relation to RTÉ’s radio output, the investigation found the station had satisfied the requirements, but added “this was largely due to the comprehensiveness of service provided by Raidió na Gaeltachta”. Speaking of the findings today, the commissioner, Rónán O’Domhnaill highlighted the discrepancy between the number of hours broadcast in each language. “This is the first time compliance with the Broadcasting Act, insofar as it relates to Irish language broadcasting, has been formally investigated,” he said. https://jrnl.ie/4576201 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article “The results of the investigation reveal that only 0.7% of programmes broadcast on RTÉ television are classified as Irish language programmes. Or, in other words, approximately 99% of programmes are in English only.”A spokesperson for RTÉ said, that although the report acknowledges a breach of its obligations under the broadcasting act, they said it had broadly fulfilled its Irish language duties. “While the Report finds RTÉ to be in breach of its obligations under the Broadcasting Act 2009 regarding the provision of Irish language programming on its linear television channels, it also finds that RTÉ is fulfilling its obligations regarding television news programmes and its radio output as a whole.“Furthermore, innovative developments made by RTÉ to considerably increase Irish language material available online, on social media, in digital radio and in podcasting are not within the scope of this Report.”The commissioner recommended RTÉ should prepare an implementation plan within six months of the report from its investigation in order to provide a comprehensive range of programming in both English and Irish. 42 Comments Share280 Tweet Email Image: RollingNews.ie Short URL Image: RollingNews.ie read more
American Soybean Association (ASA) President Mark Berg today announced that certain aspects of the Climate Change Treaty negotiated in Kyoto, Japan, raise immediate concerns for U.S. soybean farmers. “My concerns are that the Treaty fails to require developing countries to reduce or restrict their greenhouse gas emissions,” the ASA President said. “As energy-based input costs to U.S. farmers increase, we will become less competitive with producers in South America, India, Malaysia, and elsewhere. In addition, any benefits resulting from reduced emissions in developed countries could be negated by increased fossil fuel use in developing countries,” Berg stated.A major concern is the impact of the Treaty’s emissions reduction requirements on the cost of production of U.S. farmers. Studies currently available suggest that higher costs of agricultural inputs resulting from implementation of the Treaty — particularly for fertilizer, fuel, and pesticides — could reduce net farm income in the United States by 24 to 46 percent. Also, higher energy costs would negatively impact the U.S. transportation and processing sectors, further eroding agriculture’s international competitiveness. Administration officials have stated that, while initial efforts will focus on reducing emissions through incentives to industry, it may be necessary to impose new energy taxes or reduce current energy tax benefits to attain the final U.S. emissions targets.”We understand the Administration does not intend to submit the Treaty to the Senate for ratification until various changes can be negotiated, including the participation of developing countries,” Berg said. “After the current industry review is completed, ASA will be willing to reconsider its position based on any future amendments. However, ASA will not support the Climate Change Treaty as currently proposed, or any international agreement that would have the effect of making U.S. farmers less competitive in domestic and world markets by increasing production and marketing costs,” Berg added.The American Soybean Association Board of Directors has initiated a review of the Climate Change Treaty. Prior to finalizing a position on the Treaty, ASA will thoroughly evaluate the assumptions on which it is based, including the linkage between green house gas emissions and global warming.Soybeans were planted on 26 percent of all U.S. crop acres in 1997. USDA estimates that the value of 1997 U.S. soybean and soybean product exports will exceed $11 billion, the highest value of any agricultural product category, accounting for nearly 19 percent of total U.S. agricultural exports that are projected to reach $58.5 billion. These agricultural exports positively contribute to the United States trade balance. read more
As of 11:40 p.m., the National Weather Service had canceled this alert.A band of very heavy showers was moving through the Portland metro area at 9:15 p.m. and is expected to move into Clark County by 10 p.m. and then northeast into Cowlitz and Skamania counties.This band of heavy rain was producing rain rates of around 1 inch per hour as it was moving north and will likely cause abrupt rises on small streams and creeks and other drainages. It will likely also cause water to accumulate on roadways and in and around intersections and may cause difficult driving conditions.There has also been one report of thunder, so some hail is possible as well with this band. Use extreme caution if driving through the Portland metro area and into Clark County during the next 1 to 2 hours.
Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir. File PhotoBNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Friday urged his party colleagues to get ready to put up a strong resistance against the government’s ‘misdeeds and repressive acts’ as their backs are now pushed against the wall, reports UNB.”We’ve now nothing to lose as our backs are now pushed against the wall. So, it’s a time to put up a strong resistance,” he said.The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) leader came up with the comments while unveiling the cover of a musical CD on Khaleda Zia at Dhaka City unit BNP’s Nayapaltan office.Fakhrul said it is an unprecedented incident that Khaleda has been kept in jail unlawfully for several months having her bail stayed.”We just wonder how will we have our confidence in some institutions now? The High Court has granted her (Khaleda) bail, but the Appellate Division stayed it resorting to tricks and kept it hanging until the Eid vacation and thus prolonged her stay in jail,” he said.Fakhrul alleged that the government has taken a position against democracy and people to establish the rule of particular person and a party.Under the circumstances, he said, every citizen of conscience has the responsibility to stand against the government and ‘save the nation from its grasp’.The BNP leader said the government has not only snatched people’s voting rights but also their all civic rights. “We’ll have to wake up to defeat the autocratic and monstrous government.”He claimed that the country’s current situation is worse than what was during the Liberation War in 1971. “We never faced such a bad time. The current government has outshined all the autocratic governments in the past with its repressive acts.” read more
Every Monday, it’s time for Colin to face the music and evaluate his predictions that are on track, and those that have gone off the rails.This week Colin was a white hot 4-1 with his Blazin’ 5 picks, and would have been 5-0 if not for a choke job field goal by the Cardinals that would have won and covered against Seattle. On the wrong side of the ledger, his prediction that Clayton Kershaw could save the Dodgers and force an NLCS Game 7 fell flat on a history making night in Wrigley.Here’s Where Colin was right, where Colin was wrong through 8 weeks of college football, 7 weeks in the NFL, and the MLB playoffs. Where Colin was Wrong.The NFC East has been a beast – When the season started, Colin said the NFC East was one of the weakest divisions in football. So far, every team in the division has a winning record. Dallas is 5-1 with Dak, Philly is formidable with Carson Wentz, and Washington and the Giants have playoff potential at 4-3. It may be the best division in the NFL. He’s calling this one wrong.Here’s some Dak Prescott highlights for your bye week! ?#DakAttack pic.twitter.com/CQwr84SHcj— ✭Cowboys News✭ (5-1) (@DemBoyz_News) October 23, 2016 Where Colin was Right.The Ravens were a fraud – When Baltimore was 3-0, Colin called them the most overrated 3-0 team in the NFL. They have the oldest skill position players in the league and a non-existent rushing attack. The Ravens have lost 4 in a row, including a disappointing loss to the 2-5 Jets yesterday. They’re clearly a pretender. Colin was right.This is why I’ll happily collect Ravens jerseys but never a Flacco jersey. #FitzMagic pic.twitter.com/BBiTSOApLB— Avariciously Adan (@manicsocratic) October 23, 2016 Where Colin was Right.Colin’s AFC predictions – Colin had the Patriots, Raiders, Steelers and Chiefs all making the playoffs in his preseason NFL predictions. They would all be in if it started today. Even the Colts have looked better recently after a bad start, and the Bengals are still alive and are entering the soft part of their schedule. Right.“My MVP of the league is Derek Carr.” – @ColinCowherdRT if you agree with Colin pic.twitter.com/LSSgLuRRX8— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) October 24, 2016 Advertisement Where Colin was Right.Colin called Philly’s upset of Minnesota – Colin loves Minnesota this year, but he predicted they would drop their first game of the year to the Eagles in Week 7. As predicted, Philly’s defensive line dominated a banged up Minnesota offensive line and sacked Sam Bradford 6 times and forced 3 turnovers in a huge win. Right again.Shot 2 – Graham was so disruptive all game. Perfect hand swipe as he rips through, attacks the QB’s arm and gets the sack-fumble #Eagles pic.twitter.com/mkx0d5Ce8S— Fran Duffy (@fduffy3) October 24, 2016 Where Colin was Right.Kickers matter – In the NFL kicking matters. If you look at the Seattle/Arizona 6-6 tie last night, where both teams shanked chip shot field goals to win the game, it’s clearly true. Much maligned Tampa Bay rookie kicker Roberto Aguayo has had his struggles, but he’s 5/6 in October, and has booted a game winner, which is more of an impact than most rookies make. Many don’t consider kickers as actual players, but kicking wins – or loses – games. Where Colin was Right.Another 4-1 Blazin’ 5 scorcher – Uncle Colin notched his second 4-1 week in his last three. He would have been 5-0 if the Cardinals’ kicker would have hit the equivalent of an extra point to beat the Seahawks. He’s now an impressive 21-14 (60%) against the spread on the year. This week the Jets, Miami, and Chargers covered, and Colin hit on his upset of the week as Philly handed the Vikings their first loss. Where Colin was Wrong.Clayton Kershaw doesn’t deliver – Colin thought Clayton Kershaw would carry the Dodgers to a win in Game 6 of the NLCS and force a deciding game 7 at Wrigley. He didn’t. The Cubs jumped him early and ended the game early. Colin thought Kershaw would deliver, but he couldn’t get it done. Colin was wrong. Where Colin was Wrong.Brett Bielema has been below average – Colin thought Bielema to Arkansas would be a home run based on his success at Wisconsin. He’s been a bust. In his fourth year with the Razorbacks, he’s 8-20 in SEC conference games, and 6-17 against ranked teams. Arkansas just got housed by Auburn 56-3.

How to disable the Microsoft Office Upload Center by Martin Brinkmann on February 09, 2018 in Microsoft – Last Update: February 09, 2018 – 15 commentsIf you install a recent copy of Microsoft Office on your Windows PC, you may notice that something that the Microsoft Office Upload Center gets installed with that copy.You may notice it in the system tray area of the operating system as it displays its own icon there. The Upload Center may also display there after you set up OneDrive on a Windows 10 machine (maybe on older versions as well but I did not test that).First question that may come to your mind is why it is there and what it is used for.Microsoft offers the following description:Microsoft Office Upload Center now gives you a way to see the state of files you’re uploading to a server, in one location. When you upload a file to a web server, Microsoft first saves that file locally to the Office Document Cache before it starts the upload, which means that you can save changes and immediately continue working even when you are offline or have a bad network connection. The Microsoft Office Upload Center lets you keep track of how uploads are progressing, and whether any files need your attention.Basically, it is a software used to control Office documents that you work on that get uploaded to a server. This is mostly useful in scenarios where you work with remote documents. If you do, you may not want to disable the Upload Center but if you use Office locally only, there is no reason to keep the Office Upload Center around.You may use the Upload Center to manage Microsoft Office file uploads to web servers (e.g. OneDrive).How to disable the Microsoft Office Upload CenterYou may notice that the Upload Center can’t be shut down easily. A right-click on the Upload Center icon does not display options to exit the program, and the program interface offers no options to shut it down as well.The only option that Microsoft provides is to hide the icon in the Windows notification area. This is not the same as terminating the application or making sure it is not run in first place though.Click on Settings and uncheck “Display icon in notification area” to hide it. If you prefer to disable it completely, read on.The easiest way to disable the Upload Center on a Windows machine seems limited to Windows 10 only.
