Over 100 houses reroofed in Mahaut Constituency so far

first_img Tweet Share Share Anthony Scotland, Coordinator for the Mahaut, Massacre, Campbell, Despond, Tarreau and Layou Park Roof Replacement ProgrammeUnder phase one of the roof replacement project in the Mahaut Constituency over one hundred houses have been reroofed. During the press ceremony on Thursday 30 August 2018, Coordinator for the Mahaut, Massacre, Campbell, Despore, Tarreau and Layou Park Roof Replacement Programme for the Mahaut Constituency, Anthony Scotland explained that the Mahaut Village Council received a cheque of two million dollars from the government of Dominica. These funds were to facilitate phase one of the Mahaut roof repair programme. “Actually we were able to do over a hundred houses with that money; houses have been done from Warner, Tarreau, Jimmit, Mahaut, Massacre, Campbell, Despore and in the Canefield area. So we have done tremendously well with this money.”Meanwhile he revealed that over one hundred and fifty people were given the building materials needed to do their repairs. “While we were not able to assist them in giving them the labour cost, we were able to give them the materials to repair their home.”Scotland said the program under phase one went well in the Mahaut Constituency. “I must shower my praise to some of the assessors; we had eleven assessors in the area and some contractors…they have done a very good job.” LocalNews Over 100 houses reroofed in Mahaut Constituency so far by: Dominica Vibes News – September 3, 2018center_img Sharing is caring! 242 Views   no discussions Sharelast_img read more

NFC Forum Updates Specifications to Support Enhanced Connectivity of IoT Devices

first_imgThe NFC Forum has announced the release of its newly published Tag NFCData ExchangeFormat Exchange Protocol Candidate Specification (TNEP) and a new candidate version of its popular Connection Handover Technical Specification (CH 1.5). The TNEP candidate specification is the first of its kind to simplify the bidirectional exchange of data between an NFC-enabled phone and an IoT device. When combined with the TNEP, CH 1.5 enables new NFC, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi negotiated handover products and solutions. Together, the two specifications offer an ideal solution for microcontroller-based designs for IoT devices.Both candidate specifications are available for industry review before they are validated and adopted by the NFC Forum and available for general use.TNEP Candidate Specification is Industry FirstFor the first time, IoT device manufacturers can now use components implementing the protocol for tag communication to create more cost-efficient designs. The TNEP is based on the standard procedure to read and write to an NFC Forum tag, meaning that all NFC-enabled smartphones allowing their apps to read and write tags are capable of supporting TNEP using an app. These apps are able to establish a bidirectional NFC communication link to IoT devices without the need to implement the Logical Link Control Protocol (LLCP) for peer-to-peer communication (P2P).Bidirectional communication with IoT devices means NFC-enabled smartphones can read the actual state from the IoT device (e.g., the actual title of music played) and can change the configuration of the IoT device by write access (e.g., to adjust the volume or to switch to the next audio file). It can be used, for example, to configure an audio system, digital camera, lightning system, smart meter or radiator valve. This protocol can also be used where P2P is not implemented, for example, on existing NFC readers that do not support P2P mode.Connection Handover Specification Sparks New Solutions with Bluetooth, Wi-FiThe first NFC Forum candidate specification to take advantage of this new TNEP definition is the updated version of the NFC Forum Connection Handover Technical Specification (CH 1.5). Previously, negotiated handover could only occur over a peer-to-peer connection. CH 1.5 can now use TNEP to allow an additional negotiated handover for a connection between a reader/writer and NFC tag device providing users more control over how they gather and share their information between devices, thereby increasing the security of paired connections.By defining the messaging structure for how negotiated handover operates with a reader/writer and an NFC tag device, CH 1.5 creates the possibility for the development of new solutions pairing NFC with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi when the data to be transferred is large or streamed for a long time (e.g., Bluetooth audio streaming between a smartphone and a speaker or headset, streaming session between a smartphone and a TV, or transfer of a photo between a digital camera or a smartphone over Wi-Fi).For more information or to comment on the candidate specifications, click here.last_img read more

PSG ‘could’ try to sign Arsenal player – Price considered a…

first_imgFrench outlet Paris United writes today that club director Leonardo is studying the possibility of taking the player from Arsenal.Their report says it’s been difficult to find good right-backs in the market, and even though Bellerín has defensive flaws, he’d be an option for the French side.One of the problems is apparently the price. Paris United says the Spaniard is valued at around €30m, and that makes him ‘overrated’.Embed from Getty ImagesThe website points out that Bellerín only has three caps for the Spanish national team, and added to his defensive issues, that would make PSG not so certain of going for him.They wonder if he’d be good enough to be up to the challenge in big games, such as the Champions League final against Bayern Munich.Bellerín started Arsenal’s match against Liverpool at the weekend and was replaced by Cedric Soares, with whom he should fight for a place in the team this season.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoInvest With VICShe collects rental-like income every month!
