It is part of our systematic and permanent orientation aimed at recognizing and developing human resources, which today more and more in higher education institutions can be called – talents. As part of this, the “Semester of Uniline Experts” begins, every second Wednesday from today onwards with a wide range of topics on the conduct of business processes within our company. We are organizing the Uniline Open Day for all interested students at the end of April this year, the possibility of doing student internships during the spring and summer and in September in cooperation with the Ministry of Tourism of the Republic of Croatia I invite young colleagues to accept the challenge we are sending them and give our best. “Boris Žgomba emphasized and added that he would know how to appreciate the knowledge, enthusiasm and energy of students, and that he hoped that in the near future they would be the bearers of the development of the Croatian economy.By getting to know the business processes and organizational culture in the leading Croatian tour operator, students are enabled to participate in the realization of Uniline’s recently promoted vision to develop and operate as a leading content travel company in designing and offering innovative experiences in Southeast Europe.Related news:UNILINE OPENS NEW BUSINESS HEADQUARTERS AND PRESENTS NEW BUSINESS PHILOSOPHYCOOPERATION BETWEEN ECONOMY AND HIGHER EDUCATION – UNILINE AWARDS SCHOLARSHIPS TO STUDENTSCOMING SOON // Knowledge is power by HrTurizam.hrEDUCATION AND POPULARIZATION OF SCIENCE IN TOURISM – GET INVOLVED IN THE PROJECT “KNOWLEDGE IS POWER”last_img read more

Below are the explanations for each pick.Pick against the spread: One of these hot teams will use this game to continue a march back to AFC wild-card contention. The Raiders are home underdogs, but they have the best matchup in their favor with Jacobs against the Chargers’ reeling run defense. LA will answer with big plays in the passing game from Rivers in its new, more dynamic offense, but Oakland will finish a few more drives to take its latest near-last home game. Pick: Raiders win 27-20 and cover the spread.Straight-up prediction: Before it shifted in LA’s favor, this game opened as a pick ’em with good reason. Neither the 4-4 Raiders nor the 4-5 Chargers are expected to keep up with the Chiefs in the AFC West, but both are still contenders for a wild card. Los Angeles entered the season with higher expectations, and coming off consecutive refreshing wins, Anthony Lynn’s bunch is starting to look like the team many expected it to be. Quietly, the Chargers have a top-10 scoring defense. That will be the key against a good-but-not-unstoppable Raiders offense.

Haiku the open source BeOS clone to release in beta after 17

first_imgThe Haiku OS project initially launched in August 2001, then named as “OpenBeOS”, is nearing a beta release expected later this month. It’s been over 17 years since the project launched, and more than 18 years since the last release of the operating system- BeOS that inspired it. BeOs launched in 1995 by Be Inc, almost became the operating system for Apple’s hardware. However, the negotiations between Be Inc and Apple turned into nothing and the iPhone giant decided in favour of NeXT. Used primarily in the area of multimedia by software developers and users, BeOS had an impressive user interface, pre-emptive multitasking, symmetric multiprocessing and a 64-bit journaling file system. Cloning BeOS, Haiku’s boot performance is very good. The Haiku user interface is modeled entirely after BeOS, acquiring its signature variable-width title bars and spatial file management. Be Inc was shuttered in 2001. Although BeOS is dead- Haiku is very much alive, with around 50 people contributing to a patch every year. The biggest challenge that Haiku faces is the length of time between its releases. The most recent release, Haiku R1 Alpha 4.1, dates back to November 2012. In response to the considerable amount of time taken for this release, Haiku developer Adrien Destugues asserts that they needed to figure out various details regarding the project. From how to get the process back on track, to figuring out the buildbot setup, how to distribute the release to mirrors, where to get CDs pressed , and how to ship these to users who want to buy them. While the expected release date is somewhere towards the end of this month, Destugues is also open to delaying the release for another month or so in order to ship a quality product.  However, he confirms that, beginning with the first beta, there will be more frequent releases and continuous updates via the OS’s package manager. Why Should Haiku users stick around? Right after the first release of Haiku, the development team released a poll with a list of features, for which developers and users would vote to decide if they were ‘R1’ or ‘not R1’ Along with fixing a lot of bugs encountered in the previous version, users can now look forward to new features, including- Support for Wi-Fi A modern web browser with CSS and HTML5 support Improvements to the APIs which include support for system notifications, applications localisation, easier controls in the GUI, ‘stack and tile’ window management ‘Launch daemon’ in charge of starting and monitoring system services 64-bit CPU support, support for more than eight CPU cores USB3 and SATA support Support for more than 1GB of RAM Haiku now includes Package manager. All of these features will help the 200 odd users to run Haiku on a modern machine. The Haiku OS is famous among its users for its ease of use, responsiveness, and overall coherence. HaikuPorts and HaikuArchives currently include a range of software that can be used with the OS- including small 2D games, porting tools for embedded systems and the occasional Python library needed. Haiku has also made it possible to achieve porting Qt, LibreOffice, or other large applications over from the Linux world. While working with Haiku, developers often encounter system bugs in the process. This means if one is developing an application and is faced with resolving a bug, sooner or later they will be fixing the OS as well. Naturally, there are some viewers who are apprehensive of the timeline committed by Haiku, as they have waited long enough for the release. Source: Reddit After a span of 17 years, it would be interesting to see the number of Haiku users that have stuck around for the Beta release.
