I am delighted to have the opportunity to present her with the title of Knight in the Order of Arts and Letters this week.”The special bestowing ceremony took place at the conclusion of the third annual Franco-Canadian forum of creative industries, Enterprising Culture, presented by the Cultural Service of the Embassy of France in Canada and the CFC, in the Distillery District in downtown Toronto. The forum provided opportunities for unique discussions and exchanges between Canadian and French stakeholders and startups from the worlds of culture, creative, and media industries. It drew high-level French and Canadian stakeholders in the sectors of education, arts, culture and heritage, including academics, CEOs, content creators, designers, educators, entrepreneurs, government leaders and investors. Together, they generated substantive reflection on the ethics and impact of new digital technologies in creative, cultural, and educational sectors, especially machine learning, big data, and artificial intelligence (AI).

Dissanayake said that Weeratunga and Pelpita led a decent life and if Rajapaksa took responsibility to what happened then they would not have been jailed. (Colombo Gazette) The Government blamed former President Mahinda Rajapaksa for the situation faced by former Secretary to the President Lalith Weeratunga and former Telecom Regulatory Commission Chairman Anusha Pelpita.Minister S.B. Dissanayake said that Weeratunga and Pelpita are not thieves but had to follow the political decisions taken by Mahinda Rajapaksa. They were accused of misappropriating Rs. 620 million of Government funds to distribute ‘sil redi’, cloth used by Buddhist devotees, to voters during the 2015 Presidential elections. Weeratunga and Pelpita were last week found guilty in the ‘sil redi’ case and were sentenced to three years in jail by the Colombo High Court, and ordered to pay Rs. 2 million each as a fine and Rs. 50 million each as compensation. read more

MOSCOW – Wading into the furor surrounding the investigations of the Trump White House, President Vladimir Putin used a national call-in show Thursday to disparage what he called U.S. “political infighting” that is blocking better relations with Russia.The Russian leader even sarcastically offered political asylum to fired FBI Director James Comey.Putin mixed the tough talk with benevolent promises about the Russian economy to disgruntled callers complaining about decrepit housing and low salaries during the four-hour marathon intended to burnish his father-of-the-nation image. But the 64-year-old wouldn’t say if he plans to seek another term in the 2018 election, although he is widely expected to do so.Putin reaffirmed his denial of allegations by U.S. intelligence agencies that the Kremlin meddled in the 2016 U.S. election, saying that Russia has openly expressed its views and hasn’t engaged in any covert activities.He also tried to turn the tables on the U.S., saying it has sought to influence Russian elections by funding nongovernmental organizations as part of its aspirations for world domination.“Turn a globe and point your finger anywhere, you will find American interests and interference there,” he said.Putin also likened Comey to Edward Snowden, a contractor who leaked thousands of secret documents from the National Security Agency and has been living in Russia since being granted asylum in 2013.“It sounds and looks very weird when the chief of a security agency records his conversation with the commander in chief and then hands it over to media via his friend,” Putin said.“What’s the difference then between the FBI director and Mr. Snowden?” he asked. “In that case, he’s more of a rights campaigner defending a certain position than the security agency chief.”On an acerbic note, he added that if Comey “faces some sort of persecution in connection with that, we are ready to offer political asylum in Russia to him as well.”The remarks reflected Putin’s frustration with the investigations into alleged links between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia. The inquiries have dogged the White House, shattering Moscow’s hopes for improving ties with Washington.He called the allegations a reflection of “exacerbating political infighting.”On a conciliatory note, Putin added that Russia still hopes for normalization of ties with the U.S.“We don’t see America as our enemy,” he said.He said Moscow and Washington could co-operate to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and pool efforts to tackle the North Korean nuclear and missile problem.The two countries also could co-operate on global poverty and preventing climate change, he said, adding that the U.S. remains the essential player on climate despite Trump’s decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris accord.Moscow also hopes that the U.S. could play a “constructive role” in helping settle the Ukrainian crisis, he said.During the tightly choreographed show, Putin said the country has climbed out of recession despite ongoing Western sanctions, adding that the restrictions have forced Russians to “switch on our brains” to reduce dependence on energy exports.He deplored the U.S. Senate’s decision Wednesday to impose new sanctions as yet another attempt to “contain” Russia, but he insisted that such measures have only made the country stronger.The Senate voted to punish Moscow for the alleged election meddling by approving a wide-ranging package of sanctions that target key sectors of Russia’s economy and individuals who carried out cyberattacks.The bill follows several rounds of other sanctions imposed by the U.S. and the European Union over Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula and its support for pro-Russia insurgents in eastern Ukraine.Putin argued that Russia has done nothing to warrant the Senate move, calling it an “evidence of a continuing internal political struggle in the U.S.”Most of the questions during the show were about low salaries, decrepit housing, potholed roads, failing health care and other social problems in Russia.Putin offered an optimistic vision, claiming that the “crisis is over” and pointing at modest economic growth in the past nine months, low inflation and rising currency reserves. He recognized, however, that incomes have fallen and 13.5 per cent of Russians now live below the poverty line, equivalent to $170 per month.As in the past, Putin chided regional authorities for failing to care for people and ordered them to fix the flaws quickly. Even before the show ended, local officials rushed to report that they are looking into the problems.Asked about recent protests across Russia, Putin said he was “prepared to talk with everyone who genuinely wants to improve people’s lives and solve the country’s problems,” but dismissed unidentified opposition leaders for “exploiting the problems instead of offering solutions.”Tens of thousands rallied Monday across Russia to protest official corruption, heeding a call by opposition leader Alexei Navalny. He was detained outside his home in Moscow before the protest and was sentenced to 30 days in jail for staging an unsanctioned rally. More than 1,750 were detained nationwide and scores received jail terms and fines.The 41-year-old Navalny said in December he would seek the presidency, vowing to appeal a fraud conviction he calls politically motivated that bars him from running.During the call-in show, Putin remained coy about his own plans.He is widely expected to seek another six-year term in the March 2018 vote, but he hasn’t declared his intentions. Putin served two presidential terms in 2000-2008 before shifting into the prime minister’s seat for four years because of term limits. He returned to the presidency in 2012.If Putin serves another term, his two decades in power would make him the longest-serving Kremlin leader since Soviet dictator Josef Stalin, who ruled for 29 years.Asked if he was grooming a successor, Putin said he has some personal preferences, but it would be up to the voters to decide.Putin offered a glimpse into his closely guarded private life, saying he has two grandchildren whose privacy he wants to respect.Putin, who said on state TV in 2013 that he was divorcing his wife, has two daughters in their early 30s. One has been reported to be in charge of a lucrative project to build a Silicon Valley-like community under the auspices of Moscow State University.During the show, he said both daughters live in Moscow and “work in science and education.” One grandchild is in pre-school and the other, a boy, has just been born, he said, adding he didn’t want to reveal more for the sake of their privacy.“I don’t want them to grow up in a princely way. I want them to be normal people,” he said.Amid other questions, Putin sparred with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, who had cited a work by 19th century Russian poet Mikhail Lermontov called “Farewell Unwashed Russia,” while hailing Ukraine’s visa-free travel deal with the EU. Putin backed his arguments with a quote from Ukrainian 19th century poet Taras Shevchenko.Another questioner asked how Putin would use a time machine if he had one.He replied that he would rather not play with the past.“I think it’s better not to touch anything,” he said. “Things which were ought to happen will happen anyway, albeit with unknown consequences.” Russian President Vladimir Putin gestures while speaking to the media after his annual televised call-in show in Moscow, Russia, Thursday, June 15, 2017. Putin has his annual live call-in show, a TV marathon lasting for hours in which he may for the first time declare his intention to seek another term in 2018, comment on the latest opposition protest and talk about Russia-U.S. ties and other issues.

Tempe House was the venue selected by the Order of AHEPA NSW to celebrate Australia Day, and to honour Aikaterine Plessos Crummer, and the creators of the colonial-era Tempe House estate. This year marks two significant 180th anniversaries in Australian Hellenic history. On 27 September 1835, the Crummer family first set foot in Sydney. Aikaterine and her eldest daughter Amelia Helena became the first two Hellene women to migrate to the Antipodes. A few weeks later, a Scottish-born merchant named Alexander Spark Brodie held his first party at his new country estate south of Sydney, Tempe House. As Major James Henry Crummer was a newly-arrived British Army officer, it is quite likely that the Crummers were guests at Tempe House in its early years. Scottish-born Alexander Brodie Spark (1792-1856) inherited a substantial fortune upon the passing of his father in 1818. Soon afterwards, he set off on a ‘Grand Tour’ of Europe, considered a rite of passage amongst the gentry of the day. His travels took him to the Vale of Tempe, a beautiful tree-lined pass winding ten kilometres along the River Pineios at the foot of Mount Olympus. At the north end of the pass lies Macedonia; at its southern end, Thessaly. Spark commissioned John Verge in 1833 “to design for him an Arcadian villa with strong resemblance to a Greek temple”. Spark’s choice of name for his country home was meant to evoke the landscape of its namesake: extensive gardens around a natural escarpment (named Mount Olympus), with buildings designed to enhance the view of the waterway. Tempe House’s gardens once included up to 50 differing varieties of grape vines, which also attracted horticultural awards. Spark passed away at Tempe House on 21 October 1856, aged 64 years. Like many of their contemporaries, Spark and Verge were part of the neoclassical movement, a revival of the styles and spirit of classic antiquity inspired directly from the classical period. Aikaterine Plessos Crummer spent the next seven decades in New South Wales, accompanying her husband to Newcastle, Maitland and Port Macquarie, returning to the Harbour City after his passing, and living in East Sydney until she passed away on 8 August 1907. The presenter, historian Dr Panayiotis Diamadis, wove together the stories of the Crummer family and the estate where the event was held. “This was the only venue at which to have such a celebration: in one of those forgotten corners of Hellenic Australia.” The presentation was held in the former reception room of the grand colonial house, overlooking the extensive lawns and gardens which have changed so little in the last 180 years. “AHEPA NSW embraces all aspects of Australian Hellenism,” emphasised Education Committee secretary, Harry Fandakis, in his welcome to the gathering. “Studying and celebrating the past we discover ourselves. This is why AHEPA NSW selected Tempe House as the venue for the Australia Day celebration.”Migration to AustraliaAlthough it is reported that there was a Greek aboard the First Fleet, and a sailor, George Pappas, who left his ship, married an Aboriginal woman and settled in Sydney in 1814, the first official record of Greek arrivals is of seven young sailors from Hydra in 1829. They were convicted by a British naval court in Malta for robbing a British ship in the Mediterranean. At the end of their sentence five of the seven were repatriated. The other two stayed, married and died in Australia. One, Andonis Manolis, was childless but the other, Ghikas Boulgaris, was survived by nine children and fifty grandchildren. The first Greek woman immigrant, Aikaterini Plessos, arrived in Australia in 1835 as the wife of an army officer, Major Crummer, posted to New South Wales. She died in Sydney in 1908, survived by two of her nine children and thirteen grandchildren. Neither the Boulgaris nor the Crummer descendants retained their connections with Greece. Other early arrivals were Greek sailors and refugees from Ottoman rule. The majority spent a short time in Australia before returning to Greece.More Greeks arrived in Australia in the 19th century during the gold rush. Some married non-Greeks, mostly Irish women, anglicised their names and stayed in Australia. Others returned to Greece or brought their families out to join them. By 1900, around 1,000 Greeks were living in Australia. Towards the end of the 19th century, formal Greek organisations were established in Sydney and Melbourne. The Orthodox Church was the central focus of the community and schools were organised to help preserve the language and culture.By 1916 the number of Greek settlers in Australia had increased to 2,200, with chain migration of families and relatives from various islands; Kythera to New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia, Kastellorizo to Western Australia and later Darwin, and Ithaca and Samos to Victoria. Life was not easy for the new arrivals, most of whom were men. They found work in the food trades, cafes, restaurants, fruit, fish and confectionery shops, and also in other small businesses and the fishing, sugar and lead smelting industries. Only four were in the professions; a doctor, an engineer and two priests. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram read more
Over 400 delegates and other members of the international legal community gathered on the island of Rhodes in order to participate in the inaugural International legal conference hosted by the Hellenic Australian Legal Association.The event’s opening ceremony took place on Monday 9 July. President of the Greek Republic, Prokopis Pavlopoulos officially opened proceedings at the Grand Master’s Palace alongside the mayor of Rhodes, Fotis Hatzidiakos.Also present at the event was the Australian Ambassador in Greece, Kate Logan who gave a speech regarding “the endurance of the Greek Australian bilateral relationship”.The conference will go on until Thursday and will see a number of keynote speeches by several members of the court system from both countries, including that of Susan Kiefel AC, Chief Justice of The High Court of Australia.This year’s conference will focus on the ‘Influence of Hellenism and Contemporary Legal Issues’.

Japon : une armature robotique pour aider les travailleurs de la centrale de FukushimaLe fabricant japonais Cyberdyne a mis au point un exosquelette qui permettrait au personnel travaillant dans la centrale nucléaire accidentée de Fukushima de supporter le poids des tenues antiradiations.Depuis près de huit mois, plus de 2.000 employés de la compagnie Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) et d’autres sociétés oeuvrent au sein de la centrale de Fukushima Daiichi accidentée le 11 mars dernier suite à un séisme dévastateur. Alors qu’ils tentent de stabiliser la situation, la tâche s’avère particulièrement délicate mais aussi dangereuse pour eux. Ainsi, nombre d’entre eux doivent porter durant leurs interventions des combinaisons antiradiations pour se protéger de la radioactivité ambiante.

Pour cela, il faut faire appel à des tenues en tungstène qui peuvent peser jusqu’à 60 kilos. Une masse qui rend difficile pour son porteur de se mouvoir. C’est pour résoudre ce problème que le fabricant japonais Cyberdyne spécialisé dans les armatures robotiques de soutien musculaire a mis au point un exosquelette bien partciulier.Basée sur la structure robotique appelée HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb pour membre de soutien hybride), cette invention est un squelette externe électro-mécanique qui entoure le dos et longe les jambes et les bras. Ainsi, il prend en charge une partie du travail des muscles, réduisant les efforts à faire et le poids des objets portés. “L’exosquelette supporte le poids des vêtements de protection en tungstène, permettant aux travailleurs d’oeuvrer sans sentir le fardeau”, a confirmé Cyberdyne dans un communiqué.Le 7 novembre 2011 à 16:56 • Maxime Lambert read more
Share your voice Tags 0 You can make this delicious avocado basil pesto pasta with veggie noodles. Inspiralized I love pasta. I’m not talking zoodles, I’m talking regular ol’ hearty noodles. They make me nostalgic for mom’s spaghetti and grandma’s fettuccine alfredo. But unfortunately, as great as noodles taste, they make me feel pretty awful. Supremely bloated and sluggish, if you must know. Enter vegetable noodles. Not only do they allow me to enjoy my favorite dishes bloat-free, they pack way more nutrients than regular pasta. They’re also much more colorful, which is super fun. And the options are endless: You can make veggie noodles from zucchini, carrots, squash, beets, sweet potatoes and essentially any vegetable with a starchy texture. You can even use apples if you want to, though I’d say you’d have more success with a spiral-y fruit salad than apple pasta. All you need to make veggie noodles is a spiralizer, which slices vegetables of all sorts into thin, curly strips. These kitchen tools come in three forms — handheld, crank and electric — and all make it easy to get a vegetable noodle dinner on the table. Read on to find out how. How to use a handheld spiralizer 1. Wash your vegetables and trim one end to make it flat and even. Handheld spiralizers work best for vegetables that are straight, about 1 to 2 inches in diameter, and no longer than 6 inches. You can trim your vegetables to fit those dimensions if they don’t already. 2. Select the blade you want to use and secure it to the handheld spiralizer. (Check your user manual for specific instructions.)3. Place the flat end of the vegetable against the blade. 4. Use your hands to apply pressure to the vegetable and twist it clockwise. 5. When you approach the end of the vegetable, save your fingers from any mishap by inserting the pronged food holder into the exposed end of the vegetable. Continue twisting clockwise with the food holder. Here’s a video to help you visualize. How to use an electric spiralizer If you have an electric spiralizer, it should have come with a user manual. Since I can’t possibly cover the instruction manual for every electric spiralizer ever, I do recommend reading your manual before using your electric spiralizer. However, most electric spiralizers follow a similar series of steps: 1. Wash the spiralizer and then set it up according to the instruction manual. 2. Select a blade and fit it into place, making sure it’s secure and sturdy. 3. Fit the lid until it clicks into place. 4. Trim veggies so that they fit the dimensions of your spiralizer. 5. Press the pronged food pusher into your vegetables. 6. Place the food pusher into the spiralizer. Turn the power on and use gentle pressure to push the veggie through the blade. Here are directions to use some of the most common electric spiralizers:How to use the Kenwood Electric Spiralizer How to use the Oster Electric Spiralizer How to use the Cuisinart PrepExpress SpiralizerHow to use the Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 Electric Spiralizer 7 life-changing spiralizer recipes I can’t send you away with all this newfound spiralizer knowledge and not give you some creative recipes to test out your new skills. So here are seven recipes I hand-picked from around the web that might make you consider switching to veggie noodles permanently. Spiralized sweet potato pizza bakeTalk about a crowd-pleaser. Ali Maffucci of Inspiralized, a blog dedicated completely to spiralizer recipes, went above and beyond with this faux-pizza skillet. With crispy edges, a cheesy top layer and plenty of pepperoni, you’ll hardly miss the crust on your usual delivery pizza. Sweet potato pizza bake by Inspiralized. Inspiralized Summer spaghetti salad This recipe is for anyone who isn’t quite ready to entirely give up their noodles. It combines regular pasta and squash noodles, plus strands of string cheese, cherry tomatoes and walnuts for a wholesome summer meal. Avocado basil pesto zoodles Seeing the words “avocado,” “basil” and “pesto” all lined up next to each other makes me extremely excited for this recipe. Topped with chickpeas and tomatoes, this zoodle recipe makes another perfect summertime dish. Sesame miso cucumber salad You could call this a fruit salad since cucumbers are technically fruits, but you might catch some weird looks. Either way, this sesame miso recipe is subtly spicy with an Asian-inspired nuttiness, not to mention cool, crisp and chock-full of nutrients. Sesame miso cucumber salad by Snixy Kitchen. Snixy Kitchen No noodle pad thai Hello, peanutty pad thai goodness. Count me in for takeout-style food that contains nothing but veggies and other nutrient-dense ingredients. This pad thai uses raw spiralized vegetables over the traditional rice noodles, so it has a nice crunch to it. Spiralizer spaghetti I’m an avid fan of spiralized spaghetti, and you’ll find out why when you try these zoodles with a hearty tomato sauce. Zoodles turn spaghetti into a lighter dish you can enjoy more frequently because it fills you up sans carb coma. Triple chocolate zucchini muffins. You heard that right. Inspiralized Triple chocolate zucchini noodle muffins Because you can make anything out of anything these days… Plus, every recipe roundup deserves a dessert recipe. These are great to serve to picky kids (or adults) who refuse to eat anything green. Post a comment Wellness Healthy eating Hamilton Beach Cuisinart How to use a spiralizer with a hand crank 1. Secure your spiralizer to your countertop. Most hand-crank models have suction cups on the bottom that help keep it sturdy and in place. 2. Place the desired blade — most come with three to seven blades so you can make noodles in different shapes and sizes — into your spiralizer. 3. Wash and dry your vegetables, and cut the ends off to create a flat surface. 4. Place one vegetable in the spiralizer. Position the flat end of the vegetable against the blade, keeping the other end in place with the pronged disk. 5. Turn the crank and enjoy watching your veggies turn into noodles.

Rohingya refugees sit as they wait to enter the Kutupalang Refugee Camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, November 21, 2016. ReutersThe head of the U.N. refugee agency urged Myanmar on Friday to grant citizenship to the Rohingya, a stateless Muslim minority in the Asian country where sectarian violence has displaced tens of thousands since 2012.On his first official visit to Southeast Asia, U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi this week met communities in the towns of Sittwe and Maungdaw in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, home to a large population of Rohingya Muslims.He also met Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s de facto leader.Rakhine State in west Myanmar has seen the most serious religious violence in predominantly Buddhist Myanmar since the military began to end its decades of strict rule, with hundreds of Rohingya Muslims killed and more than 140,000 people displaced there in communal unrest in 2012.Tensions have risen again in recent days after village administrators were murdered and troops killed three people while clearing a Rohingya militant camp.”It’s important to work on granting citizenship to the Muslim community, that has been deprived of citizenship for many years,” Grandi told reporters in Bangkok.Myanmar’s government regards the approximately one million Rohingya as illegal migrants from neighbouring Bangladesh and denies them citizenship, even though Rohingya families have lived there for generations.Grandi also said that more investment was needed in the region.”It is one of the poorest states in the Union of Myanmar and there’s an urgent need for development investments that must be inclusive of the two communities,” he said.Last October, Rohingya insurgents launched deadly attacked on Myanmar guard posts near the Bangladesh border, provoking a military crackdown in which the United Nations says hundreds were killed, more than 1,000 homes burned and some 75,000 Rohingya fled to Bangladesh.The United Nations has established a fact-finding mission to investigate crimes against humanity allegedly committed by Myanmar’s military during the counter-offensive.Suu Kyi’s administration has rejected the allegations and opposes the mission.In the latest unrest in the region, a Rohingya Muslim man was killed and six wounded when they were attacked by a mob of Rakhine Buddhists this week.In Thailand, more than 102,000 refugees from Myanmar live in nine camps along the Thai-Myanmar border.Most are members of the Karen ethnic minority who fled conflict in Myanmar over the past 30 years.The Thai government was preparing to help about 200 camp residents to return to Myanmar in the near future, Grandi said, following the voluntary repatriation of 71 Myanmar refugees in October.Grandi will fly to Bangladesh on Saturday. read more
More information: Sound detection by the longfin squid (Loligo pealeii) studied with auditory evoked potentials: sensitivity to low-frequency particle motion and not pressure, by T. Aran Mooney et al., Journal of Experimental Biology 213, 3748-3759 (2010). doi:10.1242/jeb.048348 Citation: Squid shown to be able to hear (2011, February 8) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-02-squid-shown.html Explore further Longfin inshore squid (Loligo pealeii). Image credit: NOAA. This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Marine biologist T. Aran Mooney, a post-doctoral scholar at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Massachusetts measured the neural response to sounds in squid fitted with electrodes to detect nerve signals from the statocysts, two sac-like sensory organs near the base of the brain in squid.The longfin squid (Loligo pealeii) were in a tank and magnesium chloride was used to anesthetize them and keep them still, and underwater speakers (the kind used for synchronized swimmers) were used to play the sounds.The results of the research confirm that squid can hear low-frequency sounds between 30 and 500 Hz, but there was no response if the water temperature was less than 8°C. Dr Mooney said the squid would probably be able to hear waves, the sounds of reefs, and wind above, but would not be able to hear high-frequency sounds such as echo-location signals emitted by toothed whales and dolphins, which are the main predators of the squid. Unlike land animals, squid do not hear by detecting pressure changes produced by sound waves. Instead, they sense movements of the water that are produced by sound. Dr Mooney said the squid basically hears by detecting itself moving with the sound wave, and compared the process to a piece of fruit suspended in jelly. He said if you make the jelly wobble, the fruit moves as well as the jelly.The statocysts are fluid-filled sacs lined with hair cells that project into the sac. A tiny calcium carbonate grain called a statolith is also present inside each statocyst. In response to motions produced by sound the hair cells touch the statolith and generate signals that are sent to the brain. The hair cells in the squid statocysts are analogous to the hair cells in the cochlear in human ears, which convert vibrations in the air to signals that are then sent to the brain.The paper was published in The Journal of Experimental Biology. The researchers have now begun to investigate the squid’s relatively rudimentary sensory organ to see if it can shed light on the evolution of hearing in higher animals. Dr Mooney is also hoping to study the effect of “the burgeoning cacophony of human-generated sounds in the ocean” to see if it affects squid behavior or threatens their survival. Squid studies provide valuable insights into hearing mechanisms (PhysOrg.com) — Scientists in the US have solved the mystery about whether squid can hear and if so, how. © 2010 PhysOrg.com read more
