Skype bientôt accessible depuis la Xbox ?Skype pourrait être bientôt disponible depuis la console de jeu Xbox. C’est du moins ce que laisse présager une offre d’emploi déposée par Microsoft, confirmant un projet au sujet duquel court une rumeur depuis déjà deux ans, après que le géant de Redmond s’est offert le service de VoIP (voix sur IP).Deux ans après avoir racheté Skype, il semble que Microsoft soit en train de plancher sur le portage du service de VoIP sur sa console de jeux Xbox. La rumeur évoquant ce projet court depuis longtemps déjà. Mais cette fois, elle est confirmée par plusieurs offres d’emplois mises en ligne par le géant de Redmond.À lire aussiWindows 8 : Microsoft annonce 40 millions de licences venduesPubliées sur la page dédiée (lien non disponible) aux annonces professionnelles de Microsoft, ces offres proposent des postes de développeurs et de responsables pour une toute nouvelle équipe baptisée Skype Xbox Engineering. Celle-ci sera basée à Londres et se consacrera à “la construction des nouvelles générations de produits et de services”, indique la firme de Redmond.Aucune autre information n’est toutefois précisée quant à l’avancée de ce projet, et sa réelle teneur. Microsoft se garde d’évoquer sa Xbox 360, laissant imaginer que son application Skype pourrait être dédiée à une nouvelle version de sa console de salon. En attendant d’en savoir d’avantage, rappelons que le service de VoIP doit débarquer sur Windows Phone 7 d’ici à la fin du premier semestre 2012.Le 22 avril 2012 à 21:00 • Maxime Lambert

The union added that as a result of the agreement, a threatened strike would no longer go ahead.In a separate note, the union also summarised the Commission’s decision, noting that the general employees’ pension fund would once again be regarded as a DB scheme.The note added: “Whenever deficits arise in the scheme the established practice is that the parties engage with each other to agree arrangements to deal with such deficits.“The parties are fully agreed that should deficits arise in the scheme at any time in the future they will engage together in line with normal practice to seek agreement in relation to that matter.ESB did not reply to a request for comment, but following the announcement that the Commission would intervene, chief executive Pat O’Doherty said the company would do everything it could to avert a strike and resolve the situation. The Irish utility ESB has settled a dispute with unions over one of its pension schemes, accepting a settlement under which it will recognise the fund as a defined benefit (DB) arrangement.The Electricity Supply Board previously reclassified the ESB General Employees’ Superannuation Scheme from a DB to a defined contribution (DC) arrangement to “address the actuarial deficit arising on this scheme”, the company said in its most recent annual report.The Labour Relations Commission was asked to mediate in the dispute, with both parties coming to agreement over the weekend.In a statement, the ESB Group of Unions said: “The resolution is on the basis of the union mandate to protect the ESB Pension Scheme as a defined benefit pension scheme and to maintain existing agreements being fully met.
HEAVILY FAVORED RAYMUNDOS SECRET GOES GATE TO WIRE IN TAKING $51,000 SANTA ANITA ALLOWANCE FEATURE BY 2 ¾ LENGTHS UNDER FRANCO
HEAVILY FAVORED RAYMUNDOS SECRET GOES GATE TO WIRE IN TAKING $51,000 SANTA ANITA ALLOWANCE FEATURE BY 2 ¾ LENGTHS UNDER FRANCO; TRAINED BY BALTAS, FLORIDA-BRED GETS MILE ON TURF IN 1:34.19 ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 4, 2019)–Off at 2-5 and firmly in command throughout, Raymundos Secret registered an impressive 2 ¾ length front-running victory in Friday’s $51,000 Santa Anita allowance feature. Ridden by Geovanni Franco and trained by Richard Baltas, she got a flat mile on turf in 1:34.19.“It’s nice to be two to five!” said Franco, who picked the mount up earlier today when Flavien Prat took off three mounts on the eight-race program. “She was very handy, very willing. Turning for home, she took care of business.”Eighth, beaten 4 ½ lengths in the Grade I Del Mar Oaks on Aug. 17, Raymundos Secret, a Florida-bred daughter of Treasure Beach, was heavily favored in a field of seven sophomore fillies and paid $2.80, $2.20 and $2.10.Owned by Sierra Racing and Sterling Stables, LLC, she picked up her third win from four starts and with the winner’s check of $30,600, increased her earnings to $61,571.“She broke her maiden back in January at Tampa Bay Downs for $32,000 (maiden claiming), and we bought her then,” said Baltas. “When we got her later that month, we just decided to give her some time, so she got about 60 days and then we brought her in and got her ready for Del Mar.“Because she broke her maiden for the tag, she was eligible for the starter race ($50,000, July 24) at Del Mar on July 24, which she won pretty easy (by five lengths). We took a shot in the Del Mar Oaks and then we just regrouped and ran her here today. The way she ran, we’ll probably point to the Autumn Miss (Grade III, one mile on turf for 3-year-old fillies on Oct. 26).”Ridden by Drayden Van Dyke, Vibrance rallied well through the lane to be second. Off at 11-1, she paid $6.80 and $4.20.Courteous, attentive to the early pace with Joe Talamo up, proved third best and paid $4.40 to show while off at 11-1.Fractions on the race were 23.89, 46.77, 1:10.06 and 1:22.07.She’s Our Charm, who was assigned post position seven, broke through the gate twice prior to the start and was subsequently scratched by the stewards. At the time of the declaration, she was 25-1.
