New Delhi: As the first session of the 17th Lok Sabha begins on Monday the Lok Sabha Secretariat has also geared up to start the process of election of new Speaker.As the last date for submitting nominations for the Speaker post is on June 18, the NDA government has convened an all-party meeting on Sunday and speculations are rife that on that day ruling party would announce its candidate for the post of Speaker.In contrary to the ruling party, the Opposition parties have not yet finalised any strategy for election of Speaker. Notably, in the 16th Lok Sabha Opposition parties had not fielded any candidate and NDA’s Sumitra Mahajan was elected unopposed. This time the ruling alliance has not proposed any name so far but it’s speculated that after Niti Aayog meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi would ask party president and Home Minister Amit Shah to declare names of both Speaker and Deputy Speaker nominees. As per sources, the BJP may offer deputy speaker post for any non-NDA party. If it happens, the deputy speaker post may go either BJD or YSR Congress. The BJP has already announced seven-time MP from Madhya Pradesh Birendra Kumar as pro-tem Speaker to administer the oath of office to newly elected members of Parliament on June 17 and 18. The election of Speaker would take place on June 19. It’s been speculated that first-time pro-tem Speaker Birendra Kumar may continue as full-time Speaker, but it’s not yet been confirmed. Besides, Birendra Kumar, three senior members — Kodikunnil Suresh, Brij Bhushan Singh and Bhartruhari Mahtab — who have been nominated by President Ramnath Kovind as pro-tem chairman, would also administer the oath of the office to the new MPs in the absence of Kumar. The names of SS Ahluwalia and Maneka Gandhi are also doing the rounds for Speaker post.

New Delhi: There is an “imminent crisis” in the non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) sector as misadventures by some large entities and credit squeeze present a perfect recipe for disaster, a senior government official has said. In recent months, the country’s financial system has been grappling with multiple woes in the wake of the turmoil at diversified IL&FS group as well as debt defaults by some other large entities. In an interview to PTI, Corporate Affairs Secretary Injeti Srinivas said the NBFC sector is facing issues of credit squeeze, over-leveraging and misadventures by some large entities. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: Icra”There is an imminent crisis in the NBFC sector. There is a credit squeeze, over-leveraging, excessive concentration, massive mismatch between assets and liabilities, coupled with some misadventures by some very large entities, which is a perfect recipe for disaster,” Srinivas said. However, he added that “responsible” companies are managing the risk well and are not facing such a dire situation. Srinivas also said corporate governance in India is being put to test. Also Read – Ashok Leyland stock tanks over 5 pc as co plans to suspend production for up to 15 days”It is a defining moment. The way things are moving, in the medium to long term it will be for the good. In the short term, there can be turbulence,” he said. “If you are responsible, you manage the risks. There are many companies in the country that have strong corporate governance. They take risks but manage them as well. So, they don’t face such dire situation that some others are facing today,” Srinivas said. Amid instances of the situation of non-performing assets (NPAs) being linked to external factors, Srinivas noted that it would not be a convincing explanation. “To say that the situation (NPA) can be attributed entirely to external factors and business risks is not a convincing answer because there is something known as responsible behaviour,” he emphasised. Earlier this month, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said the banking sector is “under severe stress” and the way out of “this mess” is to reverse some “gross distortions”, work closely with the RBI, re-start the process of credit delivery and ensure sufficient liquidity and cash in circulation. The NPA “scare” has brought lending to a virtual halt, the former prime minister had said, adding that a “one-size-fits-all approach” drove companies into insolvency while demonetisation shut out all sources of informal credit. However, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had dismissed the concerns, saying, “When an economist turns into a politician, he loses sense of both economy and politics”. “Dr Manmohan Singh left behind in 2014 an economic slowdown, policy paralysis and corruption. He brought down his party to lowest ever strength in Parliament. India was a part of the fragile five. Today he regards the world’s the fastest growing major economy as disastrous,” Jaitley had said.
Casablanca- Tunisian President, Moncef Marzouki, recently a guest on Tunisian television show “Liman Yajroo Fakat” (“Only for those who dare”), dispelled an earlier unsubstantiated rumor targeting Moroccan-Tunisian relations, that King Mohammed VI had decided to cut short his visit to Tunisia and return to Morocco because of a disagreement between the heads of State over the Western Sahara conflict.The head of the Tunisian state confirmed on the television show that the rumor regarding the Moroccan monarch’s supposed decision to shorten his recent visit to Tunisia due to a disagreement with the Tunisian President was false.“There are very special human relations binding Morocco and Tunisia,” stated the Tunisian President in his response to a question asked by Samir El Wafi, the TV show presenter. Asked about the rumor, President Marzouki confirmed that it was false and fabricated. “King Mohammed VI and I discussed all topics except the question of the Western Sahara.”“These fabricated lies seek to shake and disrupt the exceptional brotherly relations binding both nations,” added the president. The parties disseminating this false information “also target the image and reputation of Tunisia,” he said.Marzouki directly addressed the parties responsible for disseminating the negative rumors, saying, “If your nation is of no value to you, then at least value your own image and reputation.”The Tunisian president also expressed his gratitude toward the Moroccan sovereign for his now-popular informal walk down the streets of Tunis accompanied only by a few bodyguards. “I told the Moroccan sovereign that [through his example] he had given us the best gift by showing that Tunisia is a safe and welcoming country, and by supporting Tunisian tourism.”Remarking on King Mohammed VI’s impressions of his visit to Tunisia, President Marzouki added, “The king said he was delighted with his visit to Tunisia, and that he felt very safe and at home in a country he considers his own, and whose people he deems his own people, too.”On Sunday June 1, Morocco had earlier denied the alleged disagreement between King Mohammed VI and Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki.“The absurd and unfounded information, reported by some ill-intentioned press, over an alleged divergence between HM King Mohammed VI, may God assist Him, and Tunisian President, His Excellence Moncef Marzouki, is expressly denied by the Kingdom of Morocco.,” a release of the Royal office said.A communiqué issued by the Tunisian Presidency had also denied the rumor as a fabrication.Edited by Elisabeth Myers
The battle of Baghouz, he argues, demonstrates the “barbarism and brutality” of the West and the “courage, steadfastness and resilience of the nation of Islam”.He added: “This steadfastness shocked the hearts of the Crusaders in what increased their rage.”Referring to the setbacks in battle, he said the “brothers” of the many fallen fighters “will avenge that, as they will not forget as long as they have blood in their veins, and there will be a battle after this one”. ISIS terror chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is seen for the first time in almost five years in a new video released to prove he’s still alive, The SUN reported.The world’s most wanted terrorist can apparently be heard name-checking the Easter bombings in Sri Lanka as revenge for their losses in the Syrian city of Baghouz in a speech to his closest followers. It seems be designed to show al-Baghdadi is alive and still in command of the on-the-run terror group as it plots new atrocities around the world.Mystery had surrounded his whereabouts for some time. He was said to have been seriously wounded in an air strike in 2015. In the the 18 minute recording, the world’s most wanted terrorist can be heard addressing the end of the so-called caliphate, which once stretched across tracts of Iraq and Syria and ruthlessly ruled over 10 million people. But he says: “In fact, the battle of Islam and its people against the Crusaders and their followers is a long battle.” The extremist group’s propaganda arm, Al-Furqan, today released a video it called “In the Hospitality of the Emir of the Believers”. But in the propaganda video he seems to have recovered.He appears with a bushy grey and red beard, wearing a black robe with a beige vest and is seated on the floor with what appears to be a machine gun propped up next to him.Al-Bagdadi acknowledged that ISIS lost the war in the eastern Syrian village of Baghouz, which marked the end of the caliphate. After the complete collapse of the caliphate last month he was thought to be have gone into hiding in the desert regions of Iraq or Syria.It is unclear when and where the video was filmed.But terror expert Rita Katz, of SITE Intelligence Group, said: “The video shows Baghdadi in a casual conversational setting with others (their faces blurred).“He talks about war against ‘Crusaders’ and about battles in Baghouz in Syria being over, indicating that this interview was filmed somewhat recently.”The siege at Baghouz lasted 10 weeks and ended in March, marking the complete collapse of the caliphate.In an audio-only section, he praises the Sri Lanka hotel and church suicide bombers, claiming the massacre was “revenge”.Terror experts said that part was likely added afterwards to bring it up to date.
“There are some encouraging signs” but “much more remains to be done,” said John E. Scanlon, the Secretary-General of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in a press release.“The momentum generated over the past five years is translating into deeper and stronger efforts to fight poaching and illicit trafficking on the front-lines, where it is needed most – from the rangers in the field, to police and customs at ports of entry and exit and across illicit markets,” he added.The two CITES monitoring programmes – the Elephant Trade Information System (ETIS) and the Monitoring the Illegal Killing of Elephants (MIKE) – will present their reports, which contain these findings, to the conference of the treaty parties in September.The reports indicate that the sharp upward trends in poaching, which started in 2006, have started to level off with continental levels of illegal killing of elephants stabilizing or slightly decreasing. However, the levels of poaching remain far too high to allow elephant populations to recover, with some populations facing risk of local extinction, the reports say.The ETIS report shows that in 2012 and 2013, levels of illegal ivory trade reached their highest levels since CITES agreed to ban the commercial trade in raw ivory in 1989. The results for 2014, the most recent year with sufficient seizure data available for analysis, suggests that illicit trade in ivory began to level off at that point, and this mostly for transactions described as being in the small worked ivory weight class. Additional data in subsequent years is required to confirm a meaningful decline in the illicit ivory trade.The ETIS report makes some specific suggestions, including greater and more focused commitment on the investigation of large-scale ivory seizures along the entire trade chain, scaled-up forensic examinations to source the origins of the ivory, and the establishment of itemized inventory lists of the contents of seizures.The MIKE figures show that the steady increase in levels of illegal killing of elephants since 2006, which peaked in 2011, has been halted and stabilized, but that levels remain unacceptably high overall.The report estimates that the number of elephants illegally killed annually in Africa between 2010 and 2015 ran into the tens of thousands. Although overall trends are moving in the right direction, elephant poaching in 2015 remains a cause for serious concern, it says.Illegal killings far exceeding natural deaths in Central and West AfricaThe figures show that Southern Africa is the only sub-region that has not seen illegal killings exceed natural deaths since MIKE monitoring began in the early 2000s. But for the first time, a spike in elephant poaching was observed in South Africa’s Kruger National Park. The elephant population in the park is not in decline, but the situation could change if current trends continue.Positive news comes from East Africa, where estimated poaching levels declined in 2015 for the fourth consecutive year. While poaching evidently increased in parts of the United Republic of Tanzania, Kenya recorded lower levels of poaching.The most serious levels of poaching were again recorded in Central and West Africa, where illegal killings continue to far exceed natural deaths.“Governments must continue to strengthen their efforts right across the illegal ivory supply chain, while international bodies and civil society must further enhance their much-needed support if we are to reverse the devastating poaching trends of the past decade,” said Mr. Scanlon.
OSU junior forward Nick Schilkey (7) during a game against Brock on Oct. 3 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Kaley Rentz / Asst. Sports DirectorAfter 120 minutes, 10 goals and 87 shots throughout the weekend, the Ohio State men’s ice hockey team now finds itself on a three-game winning streak after sweeping Canisius College by final scores of 4-1 and 6-4 on Friday and Saturday, respectively.The Buckeyes (3-7) saw goals from forwards Luke Stork, Matthew Weis, Anthony Greco and Brendon Kearney in Game 1 of the series, a game in which the Scarlet and Gray outshot the Golden Griffins (2-7, 2-2 Atlantic Hockey Association) 46-30.The only speed bump on Friday night was due to Griffins’ senior captain Ralph Cuddemi’s fourth goal of the season two minutes and 38 seconds into the third period.Kearney delivered a response with his first goal as a Buckeye with five minutes and 23 seconds remaining in the game, assisted by his freshman brethren in forwards Freddy Gerard and Dakota Joshua, who notched their first points as Buckeyes in the process.“When someone knocks on the door like that and scores a goal, a sign of a good team is to bounce back and get one right back,” OSU coach Steve Rohlik said. “Certainly we’re making some steps in the right direction.”Junior netminder Matt Tomkins got the nod to start the game, stopping 29 shots while his opposite in freshman Simon Hofley made 42 saves.In Game 2, the ice at the Schottenstein Center was seemingly replaced by a tennis court, as both teams traded blows back and forth throughout the contest.The first period was an offensive clinic, as five goals were scored. Cuddemi netted his second goal of the weekend three minutes and 29 seconds into the game. That was followed up with three OSU goals from forwards Mason Jobst, Weis and Nick Schilkey, before freshman defenseman Cameron Heath made it a 3-2 game at the 9:54 mark.OSU powered ahead 5-2 after two periods with goals coming from junior forward David Gust and senior captain Craig Dalrymple, but the Griffins wouldn’t go quietly, as third-period goals from forwards Daniel LaFontaine and Shane Conacher cut the Buckeye lead to one with eight minutes and 46 seconds remaining.“I don’t think there was any panic,” Dalrymple said. “On the bench, it was like, ‘OK let’s just buckle down, kill the rest of the period and we’ll win the game.’”Despite Canisius’ best efforts to tie the game, the Buckeye defense stood tall, and an empty net goal from Greco sealed the win and the sweep for the Scarlet and Gray at the 19:29 mark of the third.After managing just 12 goals in the seven losses that opened up the season, OSU has chalked up 15 goals in its last three home games.A big key to the recent spike in lamp-lighting has been crashing the net and simply getting pucks there.“Ever since the Mercyhurst series, we’ve hyped on getting guys going to the net,” Weis said after Game 2. “Today was a big part of everyone going to the net. Schilkey’s third goal doesn’t go in without Stork standing in front.”Special teams played a huge role as well.OSU’s power play went 3-of-6 on Saturday, while its penalty kill has successfully killed off the last 15 offenses committed, including six on Saturday.It proved to be at its strongest after OSU junior defenseman Josh Healey committed a five-minute major penalty and a received game misconduct for contact to the head in the first period of the second game.“The game puck went to our penalty kill,” Rohlik said. “We put ourselves in a bad position to take a five-minute penalty. That can be a turning point in a hockey game and our kill came up big.”The Buckeyes will now have another bye week to get set for a trip out to the University of Nebraska-Omaha to take on the No. 6-ranked Mavericks.Game times for both of those contests are set for 8:07 p.m. on Nov. 27 and 28.
Yokohama Tire Corp (YTC) is going deep into the heart of America’s coal country to display new mining tyres. YTC will exhibit at the Bluefield Coal Show, September 11-13 at the Brushfork Armory-Civic Center in Bluefield, West Virginia. The Y67™ is shown here. Tim Easter, YTC director, OTR sales says the 36-ply tough-tread Y67 44x15x20 is engineered for large shuttle cars, providing greater carrying capacity without having to change rims, and its wide footprint delivers an improved ride and longer tyre life. “The Bluefield Coal Show is held every two years and is the top regional show for underground mining in the country,” said Easter. “It’s perfect locale to highlight our new mining tyres to the coal industry.”The other new tyre is Y20™: According to Easter, Yokohama’s new 36-ply heavy-duty Y20 39x15x20 is ideal for scoops and coal haulers needing heavy weight carrying capacity in a 39-in tall tyre. “It also allows for the replacement of a 15-in rim with a heavy-duty 20-in rim for better durability and extra room around the hub. This promotes cooler running brakes, and better access and torque on the lug bolts.” Easter added the rugged Y20 was developed to take large shuttle cars down to lower levels, enabling access to deeper coal seams while still offering great carrying capacity.
In November 2013, Blue Dog also commenced a collaborative service agreement with BME Mining in South Africa, whereby Blue Dog is to provide “significant modelling and knowledge expertise support”, working with Tony Rorke, BME’s Blasting Technology Director, across a range of technical projects. It aims to reduce explosive costs and loading times; minimise costs and stoppage times associated with problems such as back-break, vibration, air blasts, fly-rock, fines and damage to commodities; minimise pollution (fumes); maximise rock fragmentation and rock movement; and increase safety and reduce damage caused by accidental blasts. Sharpe says: “Rock and explosives science states that enormous efficiency gains are achievable, simply by employing commercial explosives much more effectively and by ensuring blasting design is mine and rock specific. This systematic engineering approach is a set of simple techniques and methods which can potentially significantly reduce costs, while simultaneously increasing returns and productivity. The approach is based on the fundamental principles of how explosives systems and rock mechanics work together and on decades of applied R&D in this area…when these systems are applied and integrated together, the opportunities for increasing mining profitability become staggeringly large, because the knock-on effects are cumulative – less energy consumption, less machine wear and tear, less ore dilution, faster and cheaper extraction of commodities from blasted rock, faster turn around times.” UK-based Blue Dog Scientific Ltd, run by Dr Gary Sharpe, has developed a drill & blast system which he says can significantly cut costs and increase production rates. The focus of the system is to scientifically engineer and design tailored solutions which minimise wasted explosive energy but maximise outcomes. This includes directional blasting and borehole partitioning exploiting simple and easy to implement techniques to ensure the explosive energy is directed in the optimal way into rock breaking and rock movement and provide rapid blast hole loading systems and charge decoupling systems. The approach according to Sharpe prevents sending shock waves out equally in all directions, which is both wasteful and potentially damaging; and prevents explosives gas acting and escaping equally in all directions, which is wasteful and potentially detrimental. Explosive enhancement engineering exploits rock breaking geometrics, shaped charge effects and shock wave interactions to very significantly increase the explosives rock blasting power; reduce fumes and other negative outcomes of commercial explosives; provide robust, cheaper and safer explosive initiation and attenuation systems; allow much lower amounts of explosives to be used per blast hole; ameliorate the need for costly and sensitive priming systems and boosters; improve both rock fragmentation and its control; and reduce misfires or leftover explosives, improving safety. Borehole pre-conditioning is also being explored, where the top and the bottom of blast holes receive small modifications, by explosive or mechanical means, to improve results and enable significant reductions in stemming and sub-drilling blast holes.

There was a DJ there every Friday night, and they played this pop house music that I normally would never listen to. But after a few nights in Bohan’s, I was hooked. And now I’m still into house music.And it was kind of funny how I found my place in the Liberties, because everything was very different from my life at home. But at the same time these people made me feel even more at home.Because it’s such a tightly knit community, it’s like people know what you’ve said or done even before you know yourself. And this can have downsides, but it also makes you feel very seen and heard.You’re constantly being written into the drama and stories that are travelling round the neighborhood. It’s like you’re a character in a sitcom, and everyone wants to know what you’re gonna come up with for the next episode. Source: Marianne Thon Sørensen9. Was your time in the Liberties ever a struggle?I’m used to travelling on my own, so the Liberties didn’t really present any major challenges. But I have to say, one thing I like about the Irish kids, is the pranks. Their sense of humour is very creative.I mean, they will slag you too, but mostly they’ll do things like soak your car seat before you sit down, or try to trick you into drinking piss, or hide your horse and convince you the RSPCA took it, or attach something to the back of your car, or take your keys and hijack your car, or buy a gerbil and just leave it with you, or try to talk you into bringing a sheep down from the mountain.They will really make an effort to try and mess with your head, or talk you into doing something mad that you’d never normally do. So yeah, these were the kind of challenges I sometimes faced in the Liberties.But I got used to it, and then I came up with my own pranks. And I remember I pushed one of the boys into the Liffey, and one time I pretended to drive off and leave them in McDonald’s.That time they went mad, they came running after the van throwing burgers and soda at the windscreen
Les coraux des Caraïbes ravagés par un pathogène humainPour la première fois, une étude met au jour un lien entre l’épidémie de variole blanche qui touche le corail corne d’élan dans les récifs des Caraïbes, et un pathogène humain. La maladie pourrait provenir des égouts de Floride, ou des bateaux de touristes qui sillonnent les récifs.Depuis 2006, le corail corne d’élan, Acropora palmata de son nom latin, est protégée par la loi américaine sur les espèces menacées d’extinction. Cette espèce de corail est notamment affectée par la maladie de la variole blanche, dont l’origine précise n’avait jusqu’alors pas été déterminée. Mais une récente étude, publiée dans la revue en ligne PLoS ONE, a élucidé le mystère : cette maladie est d’origine humaine. Des chercheurs américains ont en effet établi un lien entre l’épidémie et des excréments humains. “Quand nous avons identifié le pathogène Serratia marcescens comme la cause de la variole blanche nous pouvions seulement spéculer sur le fait que les excréments humains en étaient la source puisque cette bactérie se trouve aussi dans les excréments d’animaux”, souligne Kathryn Sutherland, professeur adjointe de biologie au Rollins College, en Floride. La bactérie Serratia marscencens estfréquemment présente dans les intestins des hommes, et engendre certaines infections nosocomiales pulmonaires, urinaires ou cutanées.À lire aussiErysipèle : contagion, traitement, de quoi s’agit-il ?Les chercheurs ont alors analysé des échantillons issus de l’usine de traitement des eaux usées de Key West, en Floride, et les ont comparés à des excréments de plusieurs animaux présents dans la région, comme des cerfs et des goélands. Et le pathogène Serratia marcescens a bien été identifié dans ces excréments. Mais grâce à des analyses génétiques, Kathryn Sutherland et son équipe ont découvert que seule la souche provenant des excréments humains correspondait à celle qui a engendré l’épidémie de variole blanche.Une preuve irréfutable de l’origine humaineAfin de le prouver, les chercheurs ont inoculé le pathogène à des fragments de corail corne d’élan. “La souche de cette bactérie a provoqué la maladie dans cet échantillon du corail en cinq jours de telle sorte que nous avons désormais la preuve irréfutable que les humains sont une source du pathogène responsable de cette maladie dévastatrice pour les coraux”, explique Kathryn Sutherland.

(Photo by Adelyn Baxter/KTOO)Members of the T’aaḵú Ḵwáan gathered Wednesday at Savikko Park in Douglas for the raising of the Yanyeidì Gooch kootéeyaa, or Wolf totem pole.What began as a somber, rainy event became a sunny celebration of resilience as the pole was raised into position where the Douglas Indian Village once stood.The Yanyeidì Gooch (wolf) totem pole is raised in Savikko Park on June 6, 2018. (Photo by Adelyn Baxter/KTOO)Clan members danced and sang around its base.“This is great occasion for me. It’s been a long time coming,” John Morris said.Morris was a young man in 1962 when the City of Douglas destroyed his village to make way for a harbor and park. He watched his home burn, along with the nets and fishing gear that were his family’s livelihood.Now 78 years old, Morris said he and the other members of Yanyeidì have had to live with the pain of that day for the last 56 years.“It represents the beginning of the healing for our people, and our people really appreciate the occasion today,” Morris said. “It has been a long time [since] our people have been able to gather together in such a way, and it’s a good way.”The project to erect the 40-foot totem pole has been in the works for several years.A similar totem pole went up last year in front of Sayéik: Gastineau Community School in recognition of Tlingit graves that were unearthed there during a construction project in 2012.Goldbelt Heritage Association and the Douglas Indian Association sponsored the project.The totem pole was funded in part by a grant from the Department of Health and Human Services.
Close PayPal Holdings shares jumped as much as 11% in their highly anticipated return to the Nasdaq on 20 July, valuing the company at about $52bn (£33.4bn).PayPal, spun off from eBay, is widely expected to build partnerships with e-commerce rivals and try to seize market share from start-ups such as Stripe and Square and technology behemoth Apple, which unveiled its own mobile payments service last year.PayPal shares soared to $42.55 in early trading, up from Fridays close of $38.35 when the shares were trading on a when issued basis. eBays stock fell as much as 4.7%, valuing the company at about $32bn.Were the most trusted and popular digital wallet with 169 million people across the globe who depend on us, said Schulman before ringing Nasdaqs opening bell.Last year we processed $235bn in payments and over 4 billion transactions. This is a historic and exciting moment for PayPal and our investors.PayPal was founded in the late 1990s by venture capitalist Peter Thiel, Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk and others. It went public in 2002 and was acquired by eBay soon after for $1.5bnBowing to pressure from activist investor Carl Icahn, eBay said last year it would split PayPal as this would give both companies more focus and flexibility.
Google will set Flash to Click-To-Play in Chrome this year by Martin Brinkmann on May 16, 2016 in Google Chrome – 12 commentsGoogle announced last week that it plans to change the default state of the integrated Flash plugin of the Google Chrome browser to click-to-play.The company plans to set Flash to click-to-play in the fourth quarter of 2016 in the Chrome browser, and to use a whitelist for high profile Flash sites for one year to improve the user experience on these sites.The effect of the change is that Flash content won’t load automatically anymore in Chrome for non-whitelisted sites, and that websites who rely on Flash won’t even see that the browser supports the technology until the user allows Flash content to run on it.Users get notifications in the browser that a site tried to load Flash content which allow them to enable the Flash plugin on a site by site basis.Google plans to ship Google Chrome with a whitelist of sites that are allowed to run Flash content right away.These sites are the top ten sites that make use of Flash according to metrics that Google gathered from browser usage.Sites that will be whitelisted: YouTube, Facebook, Yahoo, VK, Live, Yandex, OK.ru, Twitch, Amazon, Mail.ru.It will be interesting to see how Google plans to tackle the Flash issue on its own domains. While YouTube will be whitelisted in Chrome so that Flash runs automatically on the site, other Google properties such as Google Music rely on Flash as well currently.The following happens in regards to Flash when a user visits a site:Chrome will default to HTML5 if possible.If a whitelisted site requests Flash content to be loaded, it is loaded.If a non-whitelisted site requests the same, it is blocked, and the user is informed about it by a prompt in the browser.The user can then allow the plugin for the session, or add the site to the whitelist so that it is allowed to run Flash on future visits without prompts.Google plans to intercept redirects to Flash’s download page on the Adobe website. Some sites redirect users when they detect that Flash is not available in the web browser.Enterprise users will get a policy setting under Content Settings that allows them to enable “always run Flash content” which runs Flash on all sites that are not blocked automatically.Chrome users can set all plugins currently supported by the browser to click-to-play already by loading chrome://settings/content in the browser’s address bar and selecting let me choose when to run plugin content under plugins on the page.Flash is dying, at least in its current form as a browser plugin. While the majority of browsers support Flash as a user-installed plugin or an integrated plugin, it is clear that this is going to change in the future.A percentage of sites moved to HTML5 exclusively already, others are defaulting to HTML5 but use Flash as a backup in case technologies used are not supported by the browser, and a third kind of sites have not yet moved to HTML5 at all and require Flash for access.Many gaming sites, Armorgames or Kongegrate, fall into the third category of sites that require Flash.Google is not the only browser maker that plans to retire Flash. Mozilla announced last year that it plans to remove NPAPI support from Firefox, and while details in regards to Flash are a bit sketchy right now, it will lead to the end of Flash in the Firefox browser eventually.Now You: do sites that you visit regularly still rely on Flash?SummaryArticle NameGoogle will set Flash to Click-To-Play in Chrome this yearDescriptionGoogle announced last week that it plans to change the default state of the integrated Flash plugin of the Google Chrome browser to click-to-play.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement
