When the news of the engagement broke, the bishop wrote: “We need a party in Calais for all good republicans who can’t stand the nauseating tosh that surrounds this event.” The Bishop criticised media coverage of the engagement as “fawning deferential nonsense” He said: “Marriages should be about family, not “some piece of national flim-flam paid for out of our taxes, for a couple whose lives are going to be persecuted and spoilt by an ignorant media”. He criticised the monarchy for a history of broken marriages and a “corrupt and sexist” hereditary principle, before going on to attack the “gutter press” for “persecuting” the Royal Family.

The commissioner said the fines – the first he has issued – would “send a strong message” to those handling data. Commissioner Christopher Graham was granted the authority to serve financial penalties for data protection breaches in April of this year. he said “It is difficult to imagine information more sensitive than that relating to a child sex abuse case. I am concerned at this breach – not least because the local authority allowed it to happen twice within two weeks.” Hertfordshire County Council faxed details of a child sex abuse case to a member of the public is to be fined £100000 for breaching the Data Protection Act. A spokesman for Hertfordshire County Council said it accepted the commissioner’s findings. “We are sorry that these mistakes happened and have put processes in place to try and prevent any recurrence,” he added.

Search Engine Marketing News | Ofcom Report

The latest Search Engine Marketing news… Ofcom tells us the UK lags on broadband and mobile according to it’s annual International Communications Market report Smart phones have some of the slowest data rates and Only a tiny percentage of UK homes have super-fast broadband compared to other nations, Ofcom reveals Less than 1% of UK homes have super-fast broadband, whereas nearly 30% of Japanese consumers have super fast connectivity. This is in the context of the UK having the highest growth in smartphone take-up, with a 70% rise in subscriber numbers in 2009. UK consumers are sophisticated smartphone users, being among the first to use mobile mapping and direction services. Ed Richards, chief executive of Ofcom said: “There has been a big change among mobile operators and an increasing consensus that UK consumers are early adopters and need lots of data. We are in a much better place than we were a year ago,” according to Mr Richards the UK’s roll-out plans are “most ambitious” The government is poised to announce large cash subsidies for firms who install high speed fibre to home networks. Whilst the speeds are being deployed more slowly, actual consumer take up is comparable to other leading countries and the UK leads when it comes to take-up of digital TV as i have forecast in the past. however internet-based TV services have failed to take off, largely due to the well-established pay TV market in the UK.

There appears to be huge potential. Imagine a very complicated surgical procedure – then with this system surgeons around the world could participate” We foresee many applications, for example in manufacturing,” said Professor Nasser Peyghambarian from Arizona’s College of Optical Sciences. “Car manufacturers or airplane manufacturers could look at holograms and design their systems in real time. They could look at 3D models and make changes as they go.” The system demonstrated this week is far from the finished product, but it gives a very strong hint of what might be achievable with further refinements. Let me explain how it works: Many different perspectives of the object or person are captured on a series of cameras arranged in a circle That information is simply sent across e net to conceivably be seen anywhere in the world A 3D holographic printing system receives the information and writes the images on toupdate screen. It updates a photosensitive polymer every two seconds; creating a changing hologram. No glasses are needed to see the images, merely some form of
