Les étudiants universitaires de la Nouvelle-Écosse sont les seuls au Canada à payer moins de frais de scolarité cette année, grâce à l’engagement de la province visant à réduire les frais de scolarité au niveau de la moyenne nationale. La moyenne des frais de scolarité au premier cycle dans les universités de la Nouvelle-Écosse a diminué de 2,9 pour cent cette année. Il s’agit de la seule province à connaître une baisse des frais de scolarité selon un rapport de Statistique Canada publié aujourd’hui 9 octobre. La moyenne nationale a augmenté de 3,6 pour cent. Statistique Canada indique que la moyenne des frais de scolarité au premier cycle en Nouvelle-Écosse est de 5 932 $ cette année, ce qui constitue une diminution de 178 $ comparativement à l’année précédente. La moyenne nationale est de 4 724 $. L’écart entre la moyenne des frais de scolarité en Nouvelle-Écosse et la moyenne nationale est passé de 1 552 $ à 1 208 $ en 2007-2008. Le chiffre fourni par Statistique Canada est une moyenne des frais de scolarité pour tous les programmes, pondérée selon l’inscription. La moyenne des frais de scolarité qu’un étudiant en arts paiera cette année en Nouvelle-Écosse est de 5 125 $, comparativement à 5 386 $ l’année dernière. La moyenne des frais de scolarité aux cycles supérieurs en Nouvelle-Écosse est de 7 242 $, ce qui constitue une diminution de 1,6 pour cent comparativement à l’année dernière. La moyenne canadienne a augmenté de 3,3 pour cent, à 5 777 $. « Alors que d’autres provinces augmentent ou gèlent les frais de scolarité, les étudiants de la Nouvelle-Écosse profitent d’une réduction, et nos étudiants continueront de payer de moins en moins de frais de scolarité chaque année jusqu’à ce que nous atteignions la moyenne nationale, » a dit Karen Casey, ministre de l’Éducation. « Nous continuons de rendre l’éducation universitaire plus abordable pour un plus grand nombre de Néo-Écossais, non seulement par des réductions des frais de scolarité, mais aussi par toute une gamme de programme d’aide à l’intention des étudiants du niveau postsecondaire. » « Il est encourageant de voir que nous sommes la seule province a avoir réduit les frais de scolarité au cours de la dernière année. Toutefois, les frais de scolarité pour les étudiants de la Nouvelle-Écosse sont toujours élevés et nous poursuivons notre engagement visant à réduire ces frais au niveau de la moyenne nationale d’ici 2010-2011. » Plus tôt cette année, Mme Casey et les présidents des 11 universités de la province ont signé un accord de financement de trois ans visant à geler les frais de scolarité pour tous les étudiants et à augmenter les fonds d’exploitation de 30 millions de dollars pour chaque année de l’accord. Mme Casey a également annoncé une bourse à l’intention des étudiants de la Nouvelle-Écosse. Les étudiants canadiens de l’extérieur de la Nouvelle-Écosse et les étudiants étrangers profitent également du gel des frais de scolarité. Plus de 42 000 étudiants fréquentent les universités de la Nouvelle-Écosse.

The United Nations has supported the Timorese police in a campaign against illegal gambling rings in Dili, where nearly 100 people were arrested over the weekend.According to the UN Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT), police from the country on Saturday also had support from the International Stabilisation Force (ISF) when they raided three illegal gambling venues in central Dili.Each gambling hall was found to have more than 50 gambling machines. In total, police seized over 250 machines and $20,000 in cash. Ninety people were arrested for identification, and a further four were detained and are facing charges. Police also seized a pen gun, 9mm ammunition and a glock magazine from one owner’s residence.Atul Khare, the head of the UN Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT), hailed the success of this operation, saying it demonstrated the “excellent cooperation” between UN and Timorese police. He also praised the arrest of a person suspected of a killing in Viqueque last week, calling it evidence of the “growing strength of the security sector of Timor-Leste.” 11 June 2007The United Nations has supported the Timorese police in a campaign against illegal gambling rings in Dili, where nearly 100 people were arrested over the weekend.
TORONTO — Shopify Inc. will report its third-quarter results Tuesday, following a tumultuous month after an activist short-seller alleged the company operates outside the law.CEO Tobias Lutke has said the Ottawa-based technology firm, which provides merchants with online checkout services, stands behind its mission.He has promised to address comments made by Andrew Left of Citron Research, who Lutke called a “short-selling troll,” during a conference call with analysts on Tuesday.Shares of Shopify (TSX:SHOP) were up $2.63, or 1.91 per cent, to $140.22 at the close of markets Monday.On Oct. 4, Left released a video attacking Shopify’s business model. He claimed the company does not comply with guidelines set by the Federal Trade Commission and suggested the stock’s value is closer to US$60 before any potential FTC involvement.Shopify’s stock fell $16.75 on the Toronto Stock Exchange the day of the report.Since the news broke, its shares on the TSX continued to shed another $13.96, hitting a monthly low of $115.76 on Oct. 10, before starting to recoup some of those losses.

SMITHFIELD, R.I. — Jordan Bruner scored 18 points, Azar Swain hit five 3-pointers for 15 points and Yale made 15- of-24 3s in beating Bryant 103-61 on Wednesday night.Miye Oni hit three 3s and scored 15 points and Blake Reynolds added 13 points for the Bulldogs (2-2), who shot 59 per cent from the field and 63 per cent from distance and never trailed.Bruner’s layup capped Yale’s opening 13-6 run and Yale hit 6-of-7 3s in the opening 7:34 to take a 52-34 halftime lead. Bruner’s 3-pointer and dunk sparked a 17-5 run to open the second half with Yale shooting 60 per cent and Thomas Ryan’s free throw put the Bulldogs over the century mark with 3:21 to play.Yale made 39 field goals on 29 assists, led by Swain’s five helpers, and outrebounded Bryant 43-30.Byron Hawkins scored 18 points, Adam Grant added 14 and SaBastian Townes had 11 for Bryant (1-5), which shot 33 per cent.The Associated Press
Then-sophomore offensive lineman Pat Elflein (left), then-junior center Jacoby Boren (50) and then-redshirt-freshman Billy Price (54) throw blocks against Alabama on Jan. 1 in New Orleans. OSU won, 42-35.Credit: Lantern file photoBoth senior center Pat Elflein and junior guard Billy Price made substantial contributions to the Ohio State football team last season. The duo of offensive lineman are being recognized for their stellar play by being named to the Outland Trophy watch list. The Outland Trophy is given to the best interior lineman each year, and is presented by the Football Writers Association of America.Elflein has spent the last few seasons at guard, finding great success and earning the title of all-Big Ten twice. This season, the Pickerington, Ohio native is shifting over to center to fill the hole left by the outgoing Jacoby Boren.The established guard-turned-center was also named to the Rimington Award watch list earlier this week, given each year to the top center in the NCAA. The 2015 “Iron Buckeye” winner — given to six OSU players twice each year for their leadership, dedication to training and toughness — Elflein surprised many after passing up on declaring for the 2016 NFL draft.Price started all 15 games for the Buckeyes during the national championship run in 2014. A combination of raw power and athleticism have propelled the former high school defensive lineman into a vital role in Urban Meyer’s offense. Price will look to continue his success at guard in the upcoming season, after being a large factor in helping the Scarlet and Gray earn an average of 245 yards per game rushing last year.Regarded as one of the strongest men on the team, the former freshman All-American has been improving ever since his first year with the team and could breakout as the best guard in the nation.Elflein and Price join four other Buckeyes on preseason award watch lists. Redshirt junior quarterback JT Barrett is on the Maxwell watch list, while junior linebacker Raekwon McMillan and redshirt junior defensive Tyquan Lewis are on the Bednarik and Nagurski Award watch list. Senior punter Cameron Johnston is also creating buzz this offseason after being named to the Ray Guy Award watch list, given to the nation’s top punter.OSU is set to open the 2016 season on Sept. 3 against Bowling Green. Kickoff is scheduled for noon at Ohio Stadium.
In Lake Washington schools, the student body is changing color. The same is true, to an even greater degree, for student populations in Bellevue, Mukilteo, Kent, Seattle, Renton and dozens of other districts where nonwhite youths now occupy a majority of classroom seats.In largely white Washington, 65 of the state’s 295 school districts now educate more students of color than they do Caucasians. That change, which is expected to continue, has already had significant economic repercussions.At the national level, public schools became majority-minority in 2014. In Washington — currently at 56 percent white students — the shift has been slower, but appears to be ramping up. As recently as 2010, Washington’s student body was 64 percent white.Incoming schools chief Chris Reykdal says the trend will necessitate significant policy changes, partly because a growing number of Washington students are immigrants who don’t speak English at home.High on Reykdal’s list: hiring more bilingual teachers by recruiting in communities of color (Latinos are still the state’s fastest-growing group), providing pay incentives and creating a pathway to teacher certification for paraeducators currently working in Washington schools.
Sweden boss backs England to continue their match to glory and win the World Cup.Sweden head coach Janne Andersson has asked Gareth Southgate’s men to go all the way and win this summer’s World Cup.The two goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli were enough to help England secure a 2-0 win over Sweden and book a place in the semi-finals of the ongoing World Cup. The English side produced a disciplined display to overcome Sweden who sent Switzerland packing from this tournament in the second-round.Croatia now stands in the way of England getting into their first World Cup final since 1966, but Janne Andersson believes England can go all the way.“They’re organised and forceful and I believe they can go all the way,” he said, according to Daily Mail.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“They are a good football side and they hardly giving anything away. I believe they can go on to win the trophy.”Andersson’s men didn’t play with the same resilience we saw them play with so far at the World Cup. But the coach has defended his players.“I don’t think anything went wrong, we just didn’t play at peak performance.We created very little scoring opportunities and did that only in the second half.” Andersson said.England will be playing at only their third semi-finals since the World Cup started in 1930 but Southgate and his troops will be hoping for more glory.
Amid controversy over whether the non-residents can legally serve on state commissions, the Speaker of the Alaska State House is proposing a policy change that explicitly carves out an exception for the board that could oversee development of a natural gas pipeline.Nikiski Republican Mike Chenault informed fellow lawmakers on Monday that he will offer the rider to a routine bill continuing the existence of the Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. The amendment makes clear that the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation board of directors is not subject to a law requiring appointees to be registered Alaska voters.Chenault says the domestic violence council bill was chosen as a vehicle for the amendment because he wants the law changed before April 11, when the Legislature votes on Gov. Sean Parnell’s appointees. This bill has the potential to make that deadline, since it has already passed the Senate and made it through the committee process in the House. “You know it wasn’t our first choice,” says Chenault. “But we think it’s important that we get this done before we get to appointments to make sure that it’s clear that in the case of Alaska corporation boards, we want the best.”Similar exceptions already exist for the Alaska Aerospace Corporation and the Alaska Railroad Corporation.The change would allow for the confirmation of Richard Rabinow, a former president of the ExxonMobil Pipeline Company who lives in Houston, Texas. Some Democrats in the Legislature have called for Rabinow’s nomination to be withdrawn, and Rabinow has told the governor that he will resign if the law is not clarified. Last month, a controversial appointee to the State Assessment Review Board pulled his name from consideration because of his California residency.Sen. Kevin Meyer, an Anchorage Republican who is sponsoring the domestic violence council bill, says he’s “disappointed” his legislation was chosen for the amendment.“You know, this time of year, it’s not unusual for people to hijack bills and put other things on them,” says Meyer. “But I was a little surprised to see that they hijacked this one.”Meyer’s own preference is to see an Alaskan appointed to the AGDC board. He also has not decided how he will vote on the bill if it comes back to the Senate with the amendment attached.“There’s a good chance that we don’t concur,” says Meyer. “And then what will happen is we go to a conference committee, and you just simply take this amendment off and the bill’s clean again.”Chenault says he anticipated questions over his choice of a vehicle, which is why announced his plan to legislators before introducing the amendment. He says ideally, he would attach it to legislation setting terms for a natural gas mega-project, but Senate Bill 138 is not moving quickly enough for that to work.Chenault believes the change itself is should not be controversial, since it only applies to the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation.“You know, it’s not for every board,” says Chenault. “You look at the cosmetology board or you’re looking at the hairdressers board, those folks should be from Alaska. They’re dealing with Alaskan issues. But whenever you’re dealing with the possibility of a multi-billion-dollar project, we want to make sure we’ve got the best.”Chenault plans to introduce the amendment on Thursday during a special meeting of the House Rules Committee.
Video: This array was towed across trawl tracks to test the effectiveness of trawl changes to reduce adverse effects to benthic animals and habitat. (Credit: NOAA Fisheries and North Pacific Research Board)Reducing bycatch has been a hot topic in the pollock trawl industry. Scientists are working with the commercial fishermen to find a solution to the problem. And, at the Alaska Marine Science Symposium this week in Anchorage, they say they are making progress.Download AudioMuch of the conservation effort is done in line with the Magnuson-Stevens Act, which, among other things, establishes essential fish habitats and mandates that harvests remain sustainable.“It also says the act of harvesting can’t damage core components of the habitat that fish need,” Brad Harris, a professor at Alaska Pacific University and directs the fisheries aquatic science and technology lab, said. “And the sense is that maybe you’re not over-fishing, but the way that you’re fishing might actually damage the productivity of the system. And so it requires that there’s a process in place that minimizes these adverse effects.”Fishing line/Footrope. (Photo courtesy NOAA Fisheries: Carwyn Hammond)Harris says there’s really only three ways to minimize those adverse effects.“You can stop fishing or fish less; you can fish somewhere else – you can close an area; or you can change how you fish,” Harris said.In Alaska, especially, the first two options aren’t viable. So, scientists are concentrating on the third option – changing how you fish.Ideally, the pollock trawl fleet fishes pelagically – meaning in the water column above the sea floor, but, according to Carwyn Hammond, who is with the conservation engineering group at the Alaska Fisheries Science Center, sometimes that’s not where the fish are.“There are times where, you know, you’ve got these beautiful schools of pollock that are in the water column and you can fish pelagically, but then there’s times those pollock aggregate on or near the sea floor and they do have to have a certain amount of contact in order to catch those fish,” Hammond said.But, the more contact the net has with the sea floor, the more damage it can do to vital fish habitat. Hammond and her team are working with commercial fishing crews to try alternative gear setups using weight clusters attached to the front of the net using a strong, lightweight rope spaced every 90 feet.Though the weight clusters still contact the bottom, it allows the rest of net between the clusters to float above the sea floor – and Hammond says it doesn’t have to be by much.(Map via Google Earth)“Just a few inches; we may have knocked over either a sea whip or a basket star, which is what we used for the bottom trawl proxy,” Hammond said. “We may knock them over, but they can recover and they can go onto still be vital habitat.”Net Reel. (Photo courtesy NOAA Fisheries: Carwyn Hammond)Besides minimizing contact with fish habitat, Hammond says raising the gear off the ground limits the impact of bottom trawling on other creatures of the deep.“What we discovered with the bottom trawl, with raising those sweeps, is we significantly reduced what we call the unobserved mortality of crabs – so snow crab, tanner crab, and king crab,” she said. “Because those invertebrates can interact with the gear on the sea floor, but they’re not actually caught, they stay on the sea floor. So we wanted to know in that study, what percentage of them lived versus what percentage of them died.”With the adjusted gear, impacts were almost fully reduced to snow and tanner crab, and mortalities with red king crab were reduced by about half.Scientists are testing other options as well. And when they figure out which setup is best, Hammond says the next step will be to partner with commercial fishermen to test the gear and ensure fishing can still be done effectively and efficiently.
Striking a balance that provides ample living space for both humans and wild animals isn’t always easy. A biologist with the Department of Fish and Game talked with Homer residents about the methods wildlife managers use to keep the peace between people and brown bears.Download AudioBrown bears are considered a valuable natural resource on the Peninsula. People come from around the world to hunt and view them. But it’s well known that allowing too many bears near human populations is asking for trouble.Jeff Sellenger gives talk at the Pratt MuseumPHOTO BY QUINTON CHANDLER/KBBIThe Pratt Museum asked Kenai Peninsula area management biologist Jeff Sellenger to discuss how the Department of Fish and Game’s management practices as part of the museum’s new bear exhibit.Sellenger says Fish and Game aims for a happy medium when managing the bear population.“We want to always maintain healthy populations but we can go anywhere from the bottom level of that to not harvesting any animals and just kind of letting them do what they’re going to do. That’s the range we have to manage,” said Sellenger.Sellenger says peninsula residents’ opinions are especially important because the Board of Game depends on the public to help them decide if the bear population should go up or down.“There’s a lot of people out there who think bears should go down even further and then there are people who think there should be more bears. We’re in that range somewhere [but] exactly where that line is…. I’m not positive,” said Sellenger.Fish and Game operates around strict management objectives, set by the Board of Game, for each wildlife population they oversee. This year’s management objectives for brown bears are: “As far as hunting goes [it’s] to not exceed 50-60 total, or 8 to 12 adult female – human caused – mortalities during calendar year 2015,” said Sellenger. “Also to maintain a healthy viable population of brown bears for multiple uses [and] to reduce the brown bear population around communities to minimize human-bear conflicts.Sellenger says human-bear conflicts are down because the population has been reduced in the past few years by more liberal hunting regulations. Right now he says Fish and Game is focusing on keeping bear populations near communities at their current level.“I think people are more satisfied that what they were maybe five years ago. We get a lot fewer complaints out of the Soldotna office regarding negative bear-human encounters,” said Sellenger.Sellenger says he doesn’t need to know the actual number of brown bears to do his job.“We can learn from complaints, sightings, DLPs, we use a lot of anecdotal information to determine where we are,” said Sellenger.DLPs are wildlife kills in ‘defense of life or property.’ Sellenger says combining that anecdotal information and data collected through careful research is part of the art of being a manager.“Ideally we would know the exact number. We’d know the number of reproductive sows. We’d know every little bit of reproduction that occurs, the survivorship rates of every different age class of bears. In a perfect world you would have that, but we’re far from that. We’ve got to work with what we can get,” said Sellenger.According to Sellenger’s presentation, 70 brown bears were killed by hunters in 2013. That’s more bears than any year since 1961. But the number of bears killed outside of hunts fell by a lot in the last few years resulting in fewer than 10 deaths this year and last year as well.Sellenger attributes those numbers to liberalized hunting regulations and he adds that more people are learning how to minimize the number of bear attractants in and around their homes.
Share Callie Richmond for The Texas TribuneA section of border fence near Brownsville.House Republicans are aiming to meet President Trump’s latest request for his border wall — $5 billion for 2019 — setting up a potential showdown with the Senate.The $5 billion would be included in a House homeland-security spending bill expected to be released Wednesday. The Senate included only $1.6 billion for the wall in its version of the bill last month, a figure that displeased Trump, who told senators he might shut down the government this fall if he does not get more.Administration officials and House Republicans are holding discussions about the precise figure and what the money would be spent on. Trump never formally requested $5 billion for the wall, instead communicating the number privately to lawmakers in recent weeks.Rep. Charles J. “Chuck” Fleischmann (R-Tenn.), a member of the House Appropriations subcommittee on homeland security, said he anticipated $5 billion that would be allocated for “wall plus” — meaning physical barriers in some spots, as well as other security mechanisms in places along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border where a wall might not be practical.He and other Republicans acknowledged it might be a struggle to get their number through the Senate. Members of the Senate Appropriations Committee have been writing their spending bills on a bipartisan basis this year, while House Republicans are proceeding on their own, without Democrats.“It’s got to start somewhere, and if we start in the House and get that out there it gives us a starting point,” Fleischmann said. “You’ll at least have the House and the White House lined up.”Rep. Nita M. Lowey (D-N.Y.), the top Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee, said the $5 billion figure was a non-starter given numerous other needs in areas such as education and health care.“That number is unacceptable. It’s unacceptable,” Lowey said.Republican lawmakers hope to avoid a government shutdown. Current funding bills are set to expire Sept. 30, just ahead of the November midterm elections in which the GOP will try to keep control of Congress.Thorny issues such as wall funding and an unrelated fight over spending on veterans may remain unresolved at that point, and lawmakers widely expect that Congress will have to pass a short-term funding extension to keep the government running through Election Day.The remaining issues could then be hashed out in a lame-duck session.During his presidential campaign, Trump repeatedly promised that Mexico would pay for a wall along the border, but thus far that has not happened.
When travelling, save space by ditching overpacking clothes and avoid heavy belts. Just take along a few lightweight scarves as you can innovate with them as bandanas, mini bags or belts, suggest experts. Experts have listed few ways of turning your colourful scarves into multi-purpose commodities:Wrap it up as a belt: Change the look of your dress by tying a fun coloured or even patterned scarf around your waist. If you have a skinny scarf handy, try pulling it through your belt loops and securing with a bow.

Simply gather up the corner, tie a few knots, and you’ll be carrying your farmer’s market goodies in no time.Shade your eyes and feel boho: If no eye mask in available, tying a scarf around your head works just as well. Perfect for airplanes, trains or bright hotel rooms. Use it as a wild west handkerchief, which is too easy to carry over a t-shirt and jeans for your flights and travel. Pack along a neutral scarf that makes a statement, and it is bound to be the most versatile and powerful accessory in your travel wardrobe.
Long time Gmail users may notice that their accounts have gotten sluggish over time. It can take longer to load your inbox and be a frustrating experience to open or send a message. This can happen for several reasons such as using a large number of add-ons or accumulating a high volume of messages, folders or filters.There are several ways to counteract this slowdown process. Here are seven tips to get Gmail feeling fast again: 1. Disable Labs features. Google offers a feature called Gmail Labs that lets you try out experimental functionality that isn’t quite ready for prime time. While many of these features are useful, they’re not really necessary — and may be contributing to Gmail slowdown. Go to your Gmail Settings (the gear icon in the upper right), head to the Labs section and disable any features you don’t use. Google also allows you to temporarily shut off Labs, if you prefer.Related: 5 Ways to Tame Your Inbox2. Turn off Chat. You may not even realize that Google Talk is running in a left sidebar Chat module whenever you log in to Gmail. To turn it off permanently, access your Gmail settings, look for the Chat section in the top menu, select the “Chat off” radio button and save your changes. Instead of using Gmail’s Chat, use a dedicated chat client such as Adium for the Mac or Digsby for Windows.3. Display 25 messages or less. Go to the General section of your Settings and look for the Maximum Page Size controls. Use the dropdown menu to adjust the “Show X conversations per page” down to 25 items or even less — you can go as low as 10 threads per page.4. Remove connected services. You can give a number of third-party sites and apps access to your Google Account in order to work with your Contacts, Calendars and other data. You may have a long list of connected services you no longer use. Head to your Authorized Access page and revoke access to any defunct web accounts or unused apps.5. Disable browser check. Gmail checks for browser compatibility when it loads in order to provide the best user experience. However, this browser check can potentially take more time than it might save. You can disable this automatic process by using the “?nocheckbrowser flag” at the end of your login URL.Related: Google Testing New Search Feature for Gmail Users6. Delete filters. Using Gmail filters can be a powerful way to sort and route your messages, but you can accumulate an unwieldy collection over time. Go to Settings then Filters and remove any old directives that are no longer relevant. Consider unsubscribing to any infrequently read newsletters instead of filtering them into bulk folders.7. Use a default theme. Custom themes are a fun way to personalize your Gmail account, but additional graphical elements take extra time to load. Try using the default Light theme instead, found at the top left under Settings then Themes.What steps have you taken to improve your email service? Let us know in the comments below.

June 12, 2014 2 min read Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Google is in the throes of its very own Space Age.In addition to dropping billions on satellites and snapping up companies that could eventually help it spread wireless connectivity throughout the globe, a new report alleges that the tech giant is in advanced talks with Richard Branson’s space tourism venture, Virgin Galactic.The rumored deal would give Google a $30 million stake in Virgin Galactic, reports Sky News — representing a 1.5 percent share. Additionally, a joint venture between the two companies would be formed, according to the report, “folding in the technology” Virgin Galactic has developed and which Google could potentially use to deploy low-orbiting satellites of its own.While Branson’s galactic flights are inching closer towards takeoff — having recently received FAA clearance — an endorsement by tech-giant Google would be immensely “reputationally valuable,” according to Sky News.Google and Virgin have teamed up once before for an intergalactic voyage — albeit for an April Fool’s Joke in 2008. That initiative, fittingly dubbed Virgle, sought to create “the first permanent human colony on Mars,” and invited the browsing masses to become space pioneers.Related: Google Unveils New Tool for Businesses to Manage Their Online Presence Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.
