CereProc, the company behind the viral JFK Unsilenced project, has today launched the world’s first commercially available Irish language synthetic voice as part of an EU research and innovation project which aims to apply cutting edge technology to community radio.The voice originated as part of an EU project to support the Grassroot Wavelengths Initiative, which is funded by the European Commission. With participants across Portugal, Romania and Ireland, the project aims to create a network of inclusive digital platforms, enabling the free flow of information within geographic communities. CereProc’s Text-to-Speech technology will be used by a community radio station on Bere Island in south-west Cork to generate spoken content when the station cannot be staffed by presenters, enabling the community to maintain a local radio station with relevant news supporting both English with an Irish accent, and the Irish language.“Existing digital voices such as Alexa or Siri are dull and all very similar,” says Dr Matthew Aylett, Chief Scientific Officer at CereProc. “They are limited to generic accents and regions. It’s time for technology to support diversity rather than encourage conformity. Companies and individuals now have access to a range of personalised, human-like voices that have character and express emotion in regional accents and less resourced languages. The Irish language is key to Irish identity and our voice can be used in tandem with our Irish-accented English language voice to create a more personalised experience for the Irish market and beyond.”This new Irish voice, based on a regional County Donegal accent, is available for use on multiple platforms, from Microsoft to Android and iOS, making it suitable for individuals for personal use or by businesses for commercial activity. It is the one of many regional accents being developed by CereProc, with the Edinburgh-based company now offering voices in over 20 different languages.“With just a few companies threatening to dominate the bulk of our technological and online experience, it’s imperative that we embrace difference and develop technology that can be used by all. We are proud to champion less widely used languages and are committed to developing affordable synthesised voices that can accommodate regional accents from across the globe,” concludes Aylett. “The Grassroots Radio Project is fundamental to local communities and we’re pleased that our Irish voice, powered by Text-to-Speech technology, is able to help bring communities such as Bere Island together and expand the use of synthesised voices worldwide.”The voice is available immediately from CereProc.com at no charge for personal use. The commercial price is £299.00 + VAT.About CereProcCereProc, founded in 2005, creates text-to-speech solutions for any type of application. Its core product, CereVoice, is a fast, cost-effective voice creation engine and is available on any platform, from mobile and embedded devices to desktops and servers. CereProc voices have character, making them appropriate for a far wider range of applications than traditional text-to-speech systems, including the innovative Hanson Robotics singing synthesis project.

This week members of the Pacific Islands Forum will join the global community in Poland for COP24, a meeting of the United Nations aimed at tackling the issue of climate change.In the region’s new security declaration (the Boe Declaration), Forum Leaders recently reaffirmed that climate change presents the single greatest threat to the livelihood, security and wellbeing of Pacific people. This builds on over two decades of declarations and advocacy that has sought to draw attention to the existential threat that the region faces from the effects of climate change and disaster risk.It is already impacting the lives of Pacific people and a warming world will make things worse. A special report from the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change said recently that we are currently on track for the Earth’s surface temperature to reach at least 3 degrees centigrade hotter than pre-industrial levels this century. In the Paris Agreement, countries agreed to work to limit temperature rise to well below 2 degrees centigrade. Forecasts show that anything above 1.5 degrees will mean devastating impacts for Pacific countries.Global action and higher ambition is needed now to meet these goals. The region’s focus at COP24 will be to conclude the Paris Agreement Work Programme. It will provide the world with a transparent set of rules to will slow the effects of human induced climate change and make all Parties (especially the largest polluters) accountable for their promises and actions. The other high level priority for the region is to ensure the Talanoa Dialogue, is embedded into the COP process. This will support the stocktake of global climate ambition to take place in 2023.The Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat joins other regional agencies to support Pacific countries. The team is led by Secretary General, Dame Meg Taylor. The Secretariat’s focus is the negotiations on Climate Finance. The Pacific wants to see simplified and scaled up access to climate finance. This will be used to fund initiatives that will help adapt and mitigate to climate change impacts. Further commitment from developed countries to deliver on the Paris Agreement global climate finance target of US$100 billion per , by the year 2020 is also being pursued. The Kyoto Protocol’s Adaptation Fund to serve the Paris Agreement will also be a key feature.It will be a challenging fortnight, but the region will be working together to try and ensure a safe, secure and healthy future for the Blue Pacific continent and for the Blue Planet.The post Negotiating Ambitious Global Climate Action at COP24 appeared first on Discover the South Pacific.Source: Blog read more
Expedia’s South Pacific expert Jonathan shares his top tips for New Caledonia.Whether you want to snorkel in turquoise pristine lagoons amongst tropical fish and turtles, horse ride with stockmen in vast cattle stations, meet local tribes who keep their culture alive, or enjoy fine dining before hitting the dance floor on an overwater nightclub, one country has it all, and much more. It’s time to discover New Caledonia!We forgot to mention hiking in lush rainforests, taking a deep dive into waterfalls and freshwater pools, oh, and kite surfing, reef surfing, and scuba diving in one of the largest lagoons on the planet.New Caledonia is the perfect mix of Melanesian and French traditions, just 2 hours and 30 minutes from Sydney!Getting ThereAfter a short flight, you will land in La Tontouta International Airport, a 45-minute drive from the capital of Noumea through stunning forest-covered mountains.With its satellite towns, greater Noumea has roughly 160 000 inhabitants; it’s a modern city, with a six-lane highway, bright new hospital, shopping malls and modern infrastructures.Make a beeline for one of the resort regions like Anse Vata, which has properties for all budgets.Time to ExploreAmedee IslandAs you wake up the next morning, it’s time to make your way to the city passenger port to board the ferry to Amedee Island. As you’ll hear everywhere, the weather is always better on Amedee, so don’t worry if the sun is shy when leaving the mainland!From coffee and French pastries on board to a beautiful buffet lunch, dance show and craft workshops on the island, you won’t get bored. Hop on a little glass-bottom boat to discover the rich life of the lagoon, spot a turtle and come back to take a closer look with the snorkeling gear you can borrow from the island’s shop.A great way to overview the New Caledonian Barrier Reef and Amedee Island is to climb up the 247 steps to the top of Amedee Lighthouse. The 19th century structure was built in France under Napoleon the third – it was dismantled into 3000 pieces and shipped over to New Caledonia!Chilling on a beach chair will top it up before heading back to Noumea in the late afternoon. Time to relax in one of the gorgeous resorts, or if you miss the big-city nightlife, hit the dance floor on the busy Port Belandre overwater bar and nightclub.Isle of PinesA trip to the outer islands is a must. A short 40-minute (Ouvea) or 30-minute (Isle of Pines) flight from Noumea will blow your mind. You don’t even have to go back to La Tontouta airport, as Air Caledonie operates domestic flights from Magenta Airport, located within the city.If turquoise was a place, Isle of Pines would be it. With 3000 inhabitants, this quiet little island has just a few very special resorts and hotels, a small township with shops, a church and high school.Tours usually include the cave where Queen Hortense hid, and according to the story, lived for a whole year. Daughter of Chief Vandegou II, Queen Hortense had to hide during intertribal conflicts in 1855 and took refuge in that cave – at the death of her father, succession conflicts were putting her life at risk. Bring a little offering to leave on the flat that used to be her bed. And if you’re lucky you’ll spot tiny bats nesting in the cave.Hit the road and visit the ruins of the prison, built by the prisoners themselves in the 1880s. The impressive ruins are still held together by a network of roots and climbing plants.Head to some of the most gorgeous bays and lagoons and jump onboard an outrigger canoe for a breathtaking sail that will take you to the pristine waters. Rays, turtles and local fauna will swim alongside the canoe.Add a couple of days on the island to visit the natural pools – surrounded by the endemic pines that gave the island its name, you’ll swim surrounded with beautiful corals and sea life.Another option is to treat yourself to the only overwater bungalows on the island at L’Escapade Ilot Maitre, an island resort a short 20-minute boat ride from Noumea. L’Escapade offers the perfect escape feeling, with world class snorkeling, literally at your feet!Bourail/KoneA 2-hour drive along the west coast will take you to Bourail, where you’ll have the chance to stay in a gorgeous bright new golf resort at Sheraton New Caledonia Deva Spa & Golf Resort. With its impressive Kanak-inspired Grand Lobby and Bungalows, the resort offers a great golf course, and mountain and turquoise lagoon views. Meet the locals or visit a cattle station. The farm in Boghen will treat you with a degustation of local food, including traditional Kanak bougnat and French-inspired cured and dried meats. Learn about Kanak customs and culture or enjoy a 5-star golf course bordering the beach and lagoon.Making your way further north to Kone, you will board a 2-seater plane to fly over the Pacific Heart, symbol of New Caledonia!The Top North and East Coast will take you to tribal lands and you will soak into the most authentic and unspoiled parts of the island.New Caledonia is a gem at the doorstep of Australia and New Zealand, so get back into your French schoolbooks and start planning your trip!The post New Caledonia Unplugged appeared first on Discover the South Pacific.Source: Blog read more
So where does Russell Athletic go from here? Senior VP for Brand Management Scott Greene shared the following in a statement via The Outlook.“For over 115 years, Russell Athletic has provided quality apparel for athletes both on and off the field of play. We are proud of our heritage, but to build lasting relationships with a new generation of athletes, we will need to focus our efforts and play to our strengths.“Today, we will begin to transition away from the team uniform business to allow greater emphasis on the consumer retail market. With this shift, we will continue to offer high quality athletic lifestyle and performance apparel for distribution through multiple retail and wholesale channels, including continued distribution of collegiate licensed products along with non-uniform apparel through the team dealer network.”While the announcement only affects a small number of major college football teams, high school programs of all sports will be the ones hurt most by this. A good number of high school programs will now have to look at other options, as coaches relied on the Russell brand for years to provide quality, good-looking uniforms at an affordable price point.Head here to read more.With all that said, it’s worth pointing out this quote yesterday from Paul Johnson at Georgia Tech.Paul Johnson: When the FBI/CBB stuff broke, for once in my life, I said I’m glad we’re with Russell Athletic.— David Glenn Show (@DavidGlennShow) September 28, 2017 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix Russell Athletic and their parent company Fruit of the Loom announced on Thursday that they’re getting out of the team uniform business.As our own Zach Barnett covers annually in his Nike, Adidas, or Under Armour?

Southern Miss is still weighing their options as the five-year deal with Russell they signed back in mid-April of 2013 comes to a close.As for other apparel providers, the big three remain dominant.

court-monitored probe into the allegations that Mani made the "sexually-loaded anti-women statements" at a public meeting While hearing the plea against Mani the court asked the state counsel if the Kerala police chief was not aware of it The bench posed the query as the state counsel opposed Vattukulam’a plea The bench then also directed the petitioner to produce the CD of the minister’s speech
