La première sépulture viking complète du RoyaumeUni

first_imgLa première sépulture viking complète du Royaume-UniDes archéologues britanniques ont mis au jour, dans les Highlands en Écosse, les vestiges d’un bateau contenant les restes d’un homme, des armes et divers objets : une sépulture traditionnelle viking, vieille d’environ 1.000 ans.Disséminés sur une longueur de 5 mètres, les restes d’un squelette côtoyant une hache, une épée à la poignée décorée, une lance, un bouclier, une partie d’un anneau de bronze, et environ 200 anciens rivets de bateau : ce sont les vestiges d’une sépulture traditionnelle viking ‘complète’ que les archéologues ont découvert à Ardnamurchan, dans l’ouest des Highlands, en Écosse. Une trouvaille faite dans le cadre d’un grand projet d’inventaire archéologique mené depuis plusieurs années dans la région, par diverses universités britanniques.À lire aussiLe pharaon Toutânkhamon n’était sans doute pas celui que l’on croitLe fait que le défunt reposait dans un bateau (dont il ne reste que les parties métalliques), selon la coutume des hommes du Nord, indique qu’il devait s’agir d’un guerrier de haut rang. L’âge de l’ensemble est estimé à plus de 1.000 ans. “Ces artéfacts et son état de conservation font de cette tombe la plus importante sépulture nordique jamais mise au jour en Grande-Bretagne. C’est une découverte passionnante !”, a déclaré le Dr Hannah Cobb, de l’Université de Manchester, co-directrice du Projet de fouilles. Une importance confirmée par le docteur Olivier Harris, co-directeur du projet de la School of Archaeology and Ancient History de l’université de Leicester.

Air Force Fighter Pilot Shortage Worsens Leaders Say

Air Force Fighter Pilot Shortage Worsens Leaders Say

first_imgThe Air Force will face a shortage of 1,000 pilots in the coming years as extended deployments and restricted training for non-deployed pilots due to budget constraints hurt morale, the service’s top leaders said during a State of the Air Force media briefing Wednesday.Earlier announcements indicated the service would be 700 fighter pilots short by the end of the year, reported Stars and Stripes.“It is a crisis,” said new Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein, who addressed reporters at the Pentagon along with Secretary Deborah Lee James.The shortage stems not only from the drop in pilot morale, but also from competition from the commercial airline industry, which has increased hiring for pilots.The Air Force also is short 4,000 maintainers, which exacerbates the problem because it reduces the number of aircraft that are available to fly, Goldfein testified in June.“The reality is, pilots who don’t fly, maintainers who don’t maintain, controllers who don’t control are not going to stay with the company,” Goldfein said.To address the shortfalls in both pilots and maintainers, the Air Force is setting up two new F-16 training facilities later this year; the locations have not been announced, according to the story.Goldfein linked the service’s low readiness levels to issues with pilot morale. “Morale and readiness are absolutely linked,” he said. “Where we have low readiness we have our largest morale issues.” Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Huawei pushes back launch of 5G foldable the Mate X

Huawei pushes back launch of 5G foldable the Mate X

first_imgIf you were desperately ripping days off of your calendar until you could get your hands on Huawei’s $2,600 5G foldable, the Mate X — which was originally slated to launch next month — it sounds like you’re going to have to wait a bit longer, per TechRadar which attended a press event at Huawei’s Shenzhen headquarters today. It reports being told there is no possibility of a September launch. Instead Huawei is now aiming for November. But the company would only profess itself certain its first smartphone that folds out to a (square) tablet will launch before 2020. So it seems Mate X buyers may need to wait until circa Christmas to fondle this foldable.It’s not clear exactly why the launch is being delayed. But — speculating wildly — we imagine it’s something to do with the fact that the screen, er, folds.We’ve reached out to Huawei for official comment on the delay.Huawei’s Mate X date slippage suggests Samsung will still be first to market with its (previously) delayed Galaxy Fold — which was itself delayed after a bunch of review units broke (because, well, did we tell you the screen folds?).Last we heard, the Galaxy Fold is slated for a September release — Samsung seemingly confident it’s fixed the problem of how to make a foldable phone survive actual use.Of course survival in the wild very much remains to be seen with any of these foldable. So expect TC’s in house hardware guru, Brian Heater, to put all of these expensively hinged touchscreens through their paces.Returning to Huawei’s Mate X, potential buyers may not be entirely reassured to learn the company appeared to dangle rather more information about a planned sequel in front of reporters at the press event.A sequel which may or may not have even more screens, as Huawei is apparently considering putting glass on the back. Yes, glass. (The gen-one Mate X will have a steel back.) Glass panels which it says could double as touchscreens. On the back. As well as the front. We have no idea if that means the price-tag will double too.This theoretical quad (?) screen foldable follow-up to the still unreleased Mate X might even be released as soon as next year, according to TechRadar’s reportage. Or — again speculating wildly — it might never be released. Because, frankly, it sounds mental. But that’s the wacky world of foldables for ya.There may be method in this madness too. Because, since smartphones turned into all-screen devices — making it almost impossible to tell one touch-sensitive slab from another — plucky Android device makers are trying to find a way to put more screen on the slab so you can see more.If they can pull that off it might be great. However sticking a hinge right through the middle of a smartphone’s primary feature and function without that simultaneously causing problems is certainly a major engineering challenge.last_img read more

(Photo by Matt Sayles/Invision/AP) Drake wins rap song Grammy, Childish Gambino makes historycenter_img LOS ANGELES (AP) — Drake surprised the music world Sunday when he emerged on the Grammy stage to accept the best rap song trophy but told the room of musicians that winning awards isn’t necessary if you have real fans attending your concerts and singing your songs.Drake, who rarely attends awards shows, won the honor for his massive hit “God’s Plan.”“You’ve already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you’re a hero in your hometown. Look, if there are people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain and the snow, spending their hard-earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don’t need this right here. I promise you. You already won,” he said at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.DRAKE’S HERE! “You’ve already won if you have people singing your songs word for word.” – @drizzy wins Best Rap Song at the #GRAMMYs #CitytvGRAMMYs He tried to continue speaking but was cut off as the ceremony suddenly went to a commercial.Rap has endured a longtime losing streak at the Grammys. The last time a rapper won album of the year was in 2004, with Outkast. Only a handful of rappers have won best new artist.Drake has a chance to become the first rapper to win record of the year later in the show. Childish Gambino made history when his track “This is America” became the first rap-based song to win song of the year. Gambino has won three awards so far, including best music video and best rap/sung performance.The Grammys kicked off with a group of powerful women, including Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga, describing the role of music in their lives — a display that came a year after female voices were somewhat muted at the 2018 ceremony.“Music has always helped me tell my story,” said Obama, who surprised the audience with her appearance. “Whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves. It allows us to hear one another.”Lady Gaga, from left, Jada Pinkett Smith, Alicia Keys, Michelle Obama and Jennifer Lopez speak at the 61st annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, in Los Angeles. (Photo by Matt Sayles/Invision/AP)Gaga told the crowd: “They said I was weird, that my look, that my choices, that my sound wouldn’t work. But music told me not to listen to them.”Jada Pinkett Smith and Jennifer Lopez also spoke and stood in solidary with Obama, Gaga and Alicia Keys, who is hosting the show airing on CBS.“Yes, ladies,” Keys said. “There’s nothing better than this.”The opening contrasted with last year’s Grammys, where male acts dominated in nominations and the only woman competing for the top award, Lorde, didn’t get a chance to perform onstage.But this year, Gaga, Brandi Carlile and Kacey Musgraves won three Grammys each.Carlile took three honors in the Americana category and will compete for the three biggest awards during the live show: album, song and record of the year.Gaga also won three, including best pop duo/group performance, a win she shared with Bradley Cooper.Gaga, now a nine-time Grammy winner, won best pop solo performance for “Joanne,” while hit “Shallow,” from “A Star is Born,” was named best song written for visual media. The song is nominated for an Oscar and also won at the Golden Globes, the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards and the Satellite Awards.Women have a strong presence in the top categories. Five of the eight album-of-the-year nominees are women, including Carlile’s “By the Way, I Forgive You,” Janelle Monae’s “Dirty Computer,” Cardi B’s “Invasion of Privacy,” Musgraves’ “Golden Hour,” and H.E.R.’s self-titled album are also in contention.Six of the best-new-artist nominees are women, including H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Margo Price, Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith.When asked about the lack of women in the top categories at the 2018 Grammys, Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow said women need to “step up.” He later acknowledged that it was a “poor choice of words,” and his much-criticized remarks forced the academy to launch a new task force focused on inclusion and diversity.Musgraves picked up best country album for “Golden Hour,” best country solo performance for “Butterflies” and best country song for “Space Cowboy.”“I never dreamed that this record would be met with such love,” she said onstage.She also gave a shout-out to her husband in the audience, saying she wouldn’t have been able to make the album if he “didn’t open my heart like you did.”Musgraves performed “Rainbow” from “Golden Hour” during the show, and hit the stage for a second time to honor Dolly Parton. Musgraves and Katy Perry joined forces for “Here You Come Again,” later joined by Parton herself. The icon sang a duet version of “Jolene” with Miley Cyrus, who often covers the classic song. But the country music icon truly shined when she sang “Red Shoes,” with country foursome Little Big Town providing background vocals.Diana Ross earned a standing ovation when she emerged onstage in a bright red dress to perform “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)” and “The Best Years of My Life.” She celebrated her 75th birthday early with the performance, saying afterward, “Happy birthday to me!” Her actual birthday is March 26.R&B singer H.E.R., who won best R&B performance for “Best Part” with Daniel Caesar, stunned as she played her guitar and sang. Monae grooved onstage during “Make Me Feel,” backed by several dancers. Post Malone performed with Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Cardi B grinded onstage during her latest single, “Money.”Laura Daigle poses in the press room with the awards for best contemporary christian music performance/song for “You Say” and best contemporary christian music album for “Look Up Child” at the 61st annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, in Los Angeles. (Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP)All four acts are nominated for album of the year.Ariana Grande won her first Grammy in the same week that she publicly blasted Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich and accused him of lying about why she was no longer performing at the show.“I know i’m not there tonight (trust, i tried and still truly wished it had worked out tbh) and i know i said i try not to put too much weight into these things … but (expletive) … this is wild and beautiful,” she tweeted after learning about her win.Tori Kelly and Lauren Daigle won two awards each. Beyonce, Jay-Z, Ella Mai, Pharrell Williams, Hugh Jackman, Stingy, Shaggy, Dave Chappelle, “Weird Al” Yankovic, the late Chris Cornell, Greta Van Fleet and even former President Jimmy Carter also picked up early awards ahead of the live show.There was a tie for best rap performance, and Drake was surprisingly not one of the winners. Drake’s “Nice for What” lost to Anderson Paak’s “Bubblin’” and Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Future and James Blake’s “King’s Dead,” from the “Black Panther” soundtrack.Beck was a double winner during the pre-telecast, taking home best alternative music album and best engineered album (non-classical) for “Colors.” Emily Lazar, one of the engineers who worked on the album and won alongside Beck, said onstage that she was the first female mastering engineer to win in the latter category.___Online: https://www.grammy.com/last_img read more
