The regeneration of land and properties owned by The Bay Trust in St Margaret’s at Cliffe, in Kent will create 14 eco-friendly homes in the village.The scheme at St George’s Place promises to set new standards in the design of healthy, low-energy lifetime homes.In 2013 following the culmination of years of meticulous planning and local consultations the charity agreed the sale of the land to a green developer.Since then Pete Halsall and his team have shaped their plans resulting in a housing scheme to build 14 homes on a one acre patch of open land.To replace this open space, The Bay Trust is also proposing to spend around £160,000 creating a new public open space on land it owns, adjoining the village primary school.A planning application for St George’s Place has now been submitted to Dover District Council. If approved, work is expected to begin by the end of the year.The Bay Trust’s Executive Director, Charles Bicker, says, “The plans for St George’s Place have been carefully shaped to maximise a range of positive environmental and social impacts locally. Any future financial returns will be invested in a range of charitable initiatives we are working on within the district.”Kent low-energy lifetime homes The Bay Trust eco-friendly homes December 5, 2016The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Tags:#E-Books#E-Learning#web The future of textbooks is digital and a growing part of the digital economy resides with Android. CourseSmart, one of the largest providers of digital learning material, released an Android application April 19 to make e-textbooks more ubiquitous in the market.CourseSmart for Android 1.0 brings access to 90% of all core higher education textbooks in use in colleges and universities to Android users. Users can search for topics within a single book or by collection, add and edit notes and can be read in portrait or landscape modes. The Android version of CourseSmart comes a year-and-a-half after the iPhone version of the app came out and a year after the iPad version. The company looks to expand and add graduate degrees. It has been certified by TRUSTe, a leading Internet privacy service provider.CourseSmart is one of the biggest digital textbook providers in the game, but it is by no means alone. Inkling, a digital textbook startup, received a round of funding in late March with backing coming from legacy publishers McGraw-Hill and Pearson. Inkling is currently only available on the iPad.The elephant on the doorstep in anything e-publishing related though is Amazon. The online commerce giant announced today that users will soon be able to check out e-books from their local libraries and take notes in the margins. If Amazon, with its platform ubiquity across iOS, Android and Kindle devices, were to turn its full strength on the topic of digital textbooks and electronic inter-library loans it could be very disruptive to the model of any up-and-coming digital textbook suppliers.A recent study said that currently only 3% of all textbooks are digital but that the number is increasing, up to a possible 25% by 2015. dan rowinski Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…
What’s new in the hair trend this winter? Are you planning to let your hair flow the same boring way? Experts suggest going for two top knots or a French braid instead of tying your hair in a boring bun for a fun party. Here’s how you can try some stylish hairdos:French braid: Begin with using a dry shampoo on your lengths and ends to help create texture. Take a centre parting and braid your hair on both sides using the French braid technique. Continue braiding till you reach the nape area and secure it with rubber bands. Open up the braids a little bit and spray finishing spray for hold.

Blast dry the hair so that the product is worked into the hair. Use a tong and curl the ends using big vertical sections. Open up the curls and use a hairspray for hold and shine.Low side bun: Use volumising spray on the lengths and ends for body and texture. Work the product into the hair with a brush and dryer. Take a side parting and tie your hair into a low ponytail at the nape area and secure it with a rubber band. Use a curling tong and tong the hair that is in the ponytail to create some movement. Twist the hair into a low bun and pin it up with bobby pins. Pull out a few strands and finish by applying a hairspray for added shine.

Take a centre parting and divide the hair into two equal parts. Tie two high ponytails of both sides of the parting and secure them with rubber bands. Twist the hair in the ponytail and wrap it around to look like a top knot. Secure it with pins. Repeat the same on both sides.Messy ponytail: To achieve the messy ponytail, apply a texturising spray to the lengths and end. Tie a high pony and secure it with a rubber band. Put some loose pieces for a messy effect and finish by spraying a shine hairspray.
This story originally appeared on Engadget This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. SpaceX is done preparing the Starship for its very first test flight ever, and Elon Musk has shared an actual photo of assembly on Twitter. Formerly known as the “BFR,” the Starship is the private space company’s upcoming super heavy-lift launch vehicle meant for journeys to the moon and Mars and for hour-long trips anywhere on Earth.As you can see, the actual spacecraft has a lot more texture than the smooth computer render the SpaceX chief teased a few days ago. That’s because this is the suborbital version designed for vertical take-off and landing tests — Musk said the orbital version will be taller and have thicker skins that won’t wrinkle. It’ll likely take some time before we see that bigger, smoother Starship, though. For now, we’ll keep an eye out for the suborbital version’s first test flight, which could take place in as soon as one to two months.

Yesterday a remote code execution bug was found in the APT high-level package manager used by Debian, Ubuntu, and other related Linux distributions. Max Justicz, the security researcher who discovered the bug, says that the bug “allows a network man-in-the-middle (or a malicious package mirror) to execute arbitrary code as root on a machine installing any package.” Justicz’s blog post states that the vulnerable versions of APT don’t properly sanitize certain parameters during HTTP redirects. An attacker can take advantage of this and perform a remote man-in-the-middle attack to inject malicious content, thus tricking the system to install certain altered packages. HTTP redirects while using apt-get command help Linux machines to automatically request packages from an appropriate mirror server when other servers are unavailable. If the first server fails, it returns the location of the next server from where the client should request the package. Justicz has also demonstrated this man-in-the-middle attack in a short video: Justicz told The Hacker News that a malicious actor intercepting HTTP traffic between APT utility and a mirror server, or just a malicious mirror, could execute arbitrary code on the targeted system with the highest level of privileges, i.e. root. He further adds, “You can completely replace the requested package, as in my proof of concept. You could substitute a modified package as well if you wanted to”. The APT is also used by major Linux distributions like Debian and Ubuntu, who have also acknowledged and released security patches for this vulnerability. Hacker News also points how this flaw comes around the time when cybersecurity experts are fighting over Twitter, in favor of not using HTTPS and suggesting software developers to rely on signature-based package verification since the APT on Linux also does the same. They further add that the APT exploitation could have been mitigated if the software download manager was strictly using HTTPS to communicate securely. The developers of APT have released version 1.4.9 that fixes the issue. The bug has also been fixed in APT 1.2.29ubuntu0.1, 1.7.0ubuntu0.1, 1.0.1ubuntu2.19, and 1.6.6ubuntu0.1 packages, as well as in APT 1.4.9 for the Debian distribution.
