New stalls for hawkers at Gariahat to have space for advertisements

first_imgKolkata: The new stalls that will be handed over to affected hawkers at Gariahat, will have space for advertisements at the back. The new concept was floated by Mayor Firhad Hakim, at a meeting with the hawkers’ organisation on Tuesday.”The stalls will have an attractive look, shaped like a square box. All 30 garment stalls that will come up will have space for advertisements. The lighting will be in a manner so that the advertisements can be seen from a distance,” said Member, Mayor-in-Council (Central Store) Tarak Singh.

This is the reason why we are designing the stalls in an attractive manner,” the official added. The Central Store is working on structuring the stalls in consultation with the hawkers. It has been decided that among the 30 stalls which will come up, seven will measure 6×3 feet while 23 will be 6×4 feet.

The civic body has already prepared an artist’s impression of the stall but the design has not been completely finalised yet. “We have also planned a screen-like cover on top of the stall made of non-flammable material, so that customers face little difficulty in purchasing things even during the monsoon,” Singh said. A group of architects that the civic body has consulted, suggested that the stalls should not block the signboards of the permanent shops. After every 10 stalls, there will be a small exit. The exits will facilitate air circulation and enable hawkers and others to flee if there is an emergency. It may be recalled that a massive fire at Gariahat on January 20 had damaged 30 stalls.last_img read more

Electron Fiddle A code playground for experimenting with crossplatform native apps

first_imgAnother “code playground” Electron Fiddle comes into the market for enabling developers create, share, and play with small Electron experiments. Electron Fiddle attempts to bring this “fiddling effect” to Electron, a framework for creating cross-platform native applications with web technologies like JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. It provides you with a quick-start template – just change few things, choose the Electron version you want to run it with, and play around. It also gives you an option of saving it as GitHub Gist or to a local folder and anyone can try your Fiddle by just entering it in the address bar. How Electron Fiddle works? 1. Each Fiddle has three files: A Main script A renderer script An HTML file Source: GitHub 2. Choose an Electron Version: Electron Fiddle knows about all released Electron versions. Open the Preferences window to see all available versions, download them and delete the ones which you don’t need. Source: GitHub 3. Run your Fiddle: Hit the RUN button to give your Fiddle a try and start it. Source: GitHub 4. Share your Fiddle: Save your Fiddle as a public GitHub Gist – this will allow other users to load it by pasting the URL into the address bar. If they don’t have Electron Fiddle, they can see and download your code directly from GitHub. Source: GitHub You can also package your Fiddle as a standalone binary or as an installer from the Tasks menu: Source: GitHub What are the features it comes with? A good coding experience It uses Monaco Editor by Microsoft, which also powers VS Code, giving users the common benefits of a modern code editor: Code highlighting Basic JavaScript error checking Refactoring Auto-completion Share your work with the community If you are eager to share your work or a bug with the Electron community, you can do that just with a click of a button. To make your Fiddle accessible to those who do not have Electron Fiddle installed, you can share it as a GitHub Gist. Compile and package your Fiddle as an app With the help of Electron Forge, a command line interface for Electron applications, you can turn your Fiddles into binaries and share it as a app for Windows, macOS, or Linux. A good starting point, continue anywhere you like If you have just started using Electron, Electron Fiddle provides you with a basic introduction of the Fiddle and usage examples for every single Electron APIs. You can export your project with or without electron-forge and then use your favorite editor for further development. With an easy installation process you can start using and experimenting with Electron Fiddle now! You can download it from its GitHub repository.

Norway is building the worlds first ship tunnel

first_img Share Norway is building the world’s first ship tunnel Thursday, April 6, 2017 By: Jan M. Olsen Source: The Associated Press Tags: Britain & Europe, Norway << Previous PostNext Post >> COPENHAGEN — Norway plans to build the world’s first tunnel for ships, a 1,700-meter passageway burrowed through a piece of rocky peninsula that will allow vessels to avoid a treacherous part of sea.Construction of the Stad Ship Tunnel, which would be able to accommodate cruise and freight ships weighing up to 16,000 tons, is expected to open in 2023.It will be 36m wide and 49m tall and is estimated to cost at least 2.7 billion kroner.Credit: The Norwegian Coastal AdministrationCredit: The Norwegian Coastal AdministrationCredit: The Norwegian Coastal AdministrationCredit: The Norwegian Coastal AdministrationNorwegian Transportation Minister Ketil Solvik-Olsen had said Wednesday that sea currents and underwater topography in this part of the country’s southwestern coast “result in particularly complex wave conditions.”“We are pleased that the ship tunnel now becomes reality,” Solvik-Olsen said, adding that travel time between Norwegian cities and towns in the area would be reduced. Over the years, plans for a ship tunnel in Stad had been floated but now a project with a financing is ready, he said.More news:  Can you guess the one and only hotel company to rank on Indeed’s Top Workplaces in Canada list?The tunnel is expected to be located at the narrowest point of the Stadlandet peninsula and the weather has for decades been considered an obstacle for shipping.Project manager Terje Andreassen said engineers will have to blast out an estimated eight million tons of rock to build the tunnel. Construction is expected to start at the earliest in 2019.Under the plan, passenger traffic will be given priority but leisure boats and other vessels can also use the tunnel. It will be free of charge for vessels measuring less than 70 metres, and vessels longer than that would have to be led.Vessels sailing through the tunnel likely will get slot times from a traffic centre – like planes at an airport – to avoid congestion.last_img read more
