A New Glasgow teen who is a top student, athlete, musician and volunteer is this year’s winner of a prestigious provincial government scholarship. Charlotte Harrison will accept the $6,000 Dr. P. Anthony (Tony) Johnstone Memorial Fund Entrance Scholarship at her school’s graduation ceremony today, June 26. “Charlotte is an outstanding young Nova Scotian,” said Education Minister Marilyn More. “She excels at school, on the sports field and on the stage. She has also shown that even a busy student can still find time to help others in the community. It is my pleasure to congratulate her on this award.” Ms. Harrison has maintained an excellent academic record at Northumberland Regional High School while being involved in athletics, school musical productions, music and volunteering. She has been an eager tutor and mentor, and was the organizer of the school’s breakfast program. Ms. Harrison is also a counsellor at a camp for disadvantaged youth and helped launch an anti-malaria fundraiser at her school. “I enjoy the experience and I find it very rewarding,” Ms. Harrison said about her volunteer activities. “I am honoured to be receiving this scholarship and I encourage other students to get involved in their school and community.” Ms. Harrison will attend University of Kings College in Halifax this fall. To be eligible for the scholarship, a student must live in Nova Scotia, be graduating from high school and beginning an undergraduate degree program at a Maritime university in the fall. The applicant must also have demonstrated an interest in multiculturalism and human rights. This year, 38 eligible applications were reviewed by the selection committee. Nova Scotia established the scholarship in 1991 to honour the life and work of the late Tony Johnstone, a long-time educator and human rights advocate who devoted his life to promoting multicultural understanding and social equality.
Washington: Lee Duck-hee became the first deaf player to win an ATP main draw match, waiting out a rain delay to beat Henri Laaksonen in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The 21-year-old from South Korea was two points from victory when thunderstorms swept through the area. When he and Switzerland’s Laaksonen returned some five hours later Lee quickly polished off a 7-6 (7/4), 6-1 victory on Monday. “I never expected to get through this one,” said Lee, who had won the final three points of the first-set tiebreaker. “I thought that I was just going to do my best and try to stay focused, but I came out a winner.” Lee, ranked 212nd in the world, will play third-seeded Hubert Hurkacz, the world number 40 from Poland, in the second round. “I’m going to go to the match with the same attitude,” said Lee, who has pursued his tennis dream despite the difficulties posed by his disability. He turned pro at 15 and achieved his best ATP singles ranking of 130th in the world in 2017. “I’m going to do my best and see what happens,” he said.

If you’re following the news, chances are you’ve heard about Virtual Reality or VR headsets like Oculus, Samsung Gear, HTC Vive etc. Trending terms and buzzwords are all good for a business or tech that’s novel and yet to be adopted by the majority of consumers. But the proof of the pudding is when people have started using the tech. And the first reactions to mobile VR are not at all good. This has even made the founder of Oculus Rift, John Carmack to give a statement, “We are coasting on novelty, and the initial wonder of being something people have never seen before”. The jury is out on present day Mobile VR technologies and headsets – ‘It Sucks’ in its present form. If you want to know why and what can make it better then read ahead. Hardware are expensive Mobile headsets are costly, mostly in the $399- $799 range. The most successful VR headset till date is Google Cardboard. The reason – it’s dirt cheap and it doesn’t need too much set up and customization. Such a high price at the initial launching phase of any tech is going to make the users worried. Not many people would want to buy an expensive new toy without knowing exactly how it’s going to be. VR games don’t match up to video game quality The initial VR games for mobile were very poor. There are 13 billion mobile gamers across the world, undeniably a huge market to tap into. But we have to keep in mind that these gamers have already access to high quality games which they can play just by tapping their mobile screen. For them to strap on that headset and get immersed in VR games, the incentive needs to be too alluring to resist. The current crop of VR games lack complexity, their UI design is not intuitive enough to hold the attention of a user for longer duration of time, especially when playing a VR game means strapping up that head gear. These VR games also take too much time to load which is a huge negative for VR games. The hype vs reality gap is improving, but it’s painfully slow The current phase of VR is the initial breakthrough stage where there are lot of expectations from it. But the games and apps are not upto the mark and hence those who have used it are giving it a thumbs down. The word of mouth publicity is mostly negative and this is creating a negative impact on mobile VR as a whole. The chart below shows the gap between initial expectation and the reality of VR and how it might shape up in the near future according to Unity’s CEO John Riccitiello. AR vs VR vs MR: A concoction for confusion The popularity of Augmented Reality ( AR) and the emergence of Mixed Reality – an amalgamation of both AR and VR have distracted the developers as per which platform and what methodology to adapt. The UX and UI design are quite different for both AR and VR and MR and hence all of these three disciplines would need dedicated development resources. For this to happen, these disciplines would have to be formalized first and until that time, the quality of the apps will not improve drastically. No unified VR development platform Mobile VR is dependant on SDKs and primarily on the two game engines Unity and Unreal Engine that have come up with support for VR game development. While Unity is one of the biggest names in game development industry, a dedicated and unified VR development platform is still missing in action. As for Unity and Unreal Engine their priority will not be VR any time soon. Things can change if and when some tech giant like Google, Microsoft, Facebook etc. will dedicate their resources to create VR apps and Games for mobile. Although Google has cardboard, Facebook unveiled React VR and support for AR development, Microsoft has their own game going on with Hololens AR and MR development, the trend that started it all still seems to be lost among its newer cousins. I think, VR will be big, but it will have to wait till its implementation by some major business or company. Till then, we will have to wear our ghastly headsets and imagine that we are living in the future.
