La Peste noire à lorigine de toutes les épidémies modernes de peste

first_imgLa Peste noire, à l’origine de toutes les épidémies modernes de pesteL’analyse génétique de la bactérie responsable de la Peste noire suggère que cet agent qui a ravagé l’Europe au XIVe siècle est l’ancêtre de toutes les formes actuelles de la maladie, a annoncé une équipe internationale de chercheurs.En septembre dernier, des scientifiques ont annoncé qu’ils étaient parvenus à confirmer une hypothèse de plusieurs centaines années : à savoir l’identité de la bactérie qui a causé l’épidémie meurtrière de peste bubonique qui a ravagé l’Europe entre 1348 et 1352 et décimé près de 30% de la population. En étudiant les os provenant de victimes enterrées au cimetière londonien de East Smithfield, ils ont établi qu’il s’agissait bien de la bactérie Yersinia pestis, agent de la peste identifié en 1894. Mais aujourd’hui, c’est une nouvelle découverte qui est révélée dans la revue Nature. La souche de la bactérie identifiée dans les os serait en fait l’ancêtre de l’agent responsable des épidémies modernes. Pour arriver à une telle conclusion, le professeur Johannes Krause de l’Université de Tuebingen en Allemagne et ses collègues, ont reconstruit le génome de la souche médiévale à partir de dents de victimes de la peste bubonique. Puis ils l’ont comparé avec celui de quelques uns de ses congénères contemporains dont le code génétique a été décodé en 2001. “Les données montrent que cette souche médiévale du bacille est l’ancêtre de toutes les flambées de peste qui sévissent aujourd’hui”, précise le professeur Johannes Kraus. L’étude a même montré qu’en six siècles, il n’y a pas eu de changements génétiques majeurs chez cette bactérie.D’autres facteurs à considérer À lire aussiAux États-Unis, un enfant a attrapé la peste buboniqueAinsi, d’après les chercheurs, la similitude entre l’ancien germe et ses formes modernes suggère que la virulence particulière de la Peste noire ne serait pas uniquement liée à la bactérie elle-même. D’autres facteurs devraient donc être considérés dans les discussions sur la susceptibilité des populations, comme l’environnement, les conditions sociales telles que la misère, la malnutrition, l’absence d’hygiène, la dynamique des vecteurs (rats/puces), la présence d’autres maladies concurrentes ou encore la vulnérabilité des hôtes, rapporte l’AFP.Ce serait donc notamment parce que la population européenne n’avait jamais été exposée à ce pathogène émergent que l’épidémie de Peste noire aurait été si dévastatrice. Un exemple semblable à celui de l’épidémie de variole qui a décimé des Indiens d’Amérique totalement dépourvus d’immunité contre la maladie. Par ailleurs, dans leur étude, les chercheurs évoquent également la pandémie de “peste de Justinien” qui a sévi au VIe siècle dans l’Empire romain et dont on estime qu’elle a fait cent millions de morts dans le monde. Si celle-ci reste un mystère, les auteurs émettent l’hypothèse d’une variété différente de la bactérie actuelle voire d’une autre maladie.

Google renonce à certains produits

first_imgGoogle renonce à certains produitsGoogle vient d’annoncer la prochaine fermeture de certains de ses services. Dans le cadre d’une stratégie visant à se recentrer sur ses services phares, la firme de Mountain View renonce entre autres à son logiciel de photo Picasa pour Linux et à One Pass, un service d’abonnement pour la presse en ligne.Google entend se consacrer uniquement à ses services les plus importants et procède alors à un véritable nettoyage de printemps au sein de ses produits. Sur son blog (lien non disponible) dédié aux développeurs, le géant de Mountain View annonce renoncer à plusieurs de ses services jugés non-essentiels, et dont le succès laisse à désirer.”Dans un effort visant à aligner notre rythme de développement sur le marché, nous avons fait une analyse minutieuse de nos politiques sur les programmes obsolètes”, explique Scott Knaster, le rédacteur en chef du blog. Google met ainsi fin à One Pass, ou Pass Média en France. Lancé il y un peu plus d’un an, ce système offrait une plateforme d’abonnement et de paiement destinée à la presse en ligne. Un service pour lequel la firme ne s’octroyait que 10% de commission, contre 30% pour la plateforme similaire d’Apple.Google abandonne en outre Google Related. Cette extension dédiée au navigateur Chrome permettait d’obtenir plus d’informations liées aux recherches réalisées sur Internet. Un projet expérimental qui n’a pas su séduire les internautes. Fini aussi le service de synchronisation entre terminaux RIM Google Sync pour BlackBerry, comme les mises à jour du logiciel de photo PicasapourLinux.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?L’application mobile Google Talk, une messagerie instantanée, va elle aussi disparaître.

PlayerUnknowns Battlegrounds is Finally a Real Game

first_imgStay on target Without a doubt, 2017’s biggest gaming success story is PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Despite being an unfinished early-access title, it managed to sell over 20 million units on PC. This success was mirrored to a small extent on Xbox One where it sold one million copies in just 48 hours. Now, after all of this time (and countless patches), PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has left early access and is officially a finished game.Players, we will be leaving Early Access and launching PC 1.0 on Dec 20 11PM PST. The maintenance on live servers for 1.0 will start Dec 20 6PM PST / Dec 21 3AM CET and last for 5 hours. 1.0 release patch notes and our plans beyond the release will be shared with you soon.— PLAY BATTLEGROUNDS (@PUBATTLEGROUNDS) December 20, 2017What can players expect with Battlegrounds 1.0? The biggest addition is a brand-new map called Miramar. There is also a replay mode which users have already been messing around with. Aside from that, there doesn’t appear to be a whole lot different between the “finished” Battlegrounds and the early access version. I put quotation marks over the word finished because the game is still riddled with numerous bugs and glitches. I suppose we can’t give PUBG much grief about this since many other “finished” games also suffer from the same issues. All of these hiccups didn’t prevent the game from attaining success. It seems folks are having too much fun killing each other in the game to care about glitches and such.PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was created by Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene. The game began life as an Arma 2 mod called DayZ: Battle Royale which was inspired by the movie, Battle Royale. PUBG is popular due to the vast freedom it gives players. Because of this, it has become a Twitch mainstay and is even becoming big in the esports world. PUBG has also inspired similar battle royale modes in games like Grand Theft Auto: Online and Fortnite. I’m sure we’ll see more PUBG-inspired modes and games in 2018. ‘PUBG’ Story Trailer Teases the Unknown PlayerJordan Bans ‘Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds’ center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

I5 Bridge bill is downgraded

first_imgOne Southwest Washington lawmaker called the current effort to revive talks of replacing the Interstate 5 Bridge over the Columbia River a “small step forward” toward easing the congestion between Portland and Vancouver.On Tuesday, in a Senate Transportation Committee hearing in Olympia, it became more of a crawl.The bill was downgraded to declare the I-5 Bridge something closer to “a project of great public importance,” according to Sen. Annette Cleveland.An earlier version would have declared it a project of statewide significance, which could have helped expedite the permitting process. The current measure postpones that declaration, but it carves out room for lawmakers to make it in the future.The Southwest Washington delegation, which negotiated for months over each word in the original bill, said the measure still has plenty of merit.“I don’t feel the bill is weakened even a tiny bit because of this,” said Sen. Ann Rivers, R-La Center. “It doesn’t change our mandate, which is to have a full process to engage with the public to develop the plan, not only for this bridge but for other crossings over the river.”Part of the goal of designating the bridge a project of statewide significance was to quell a growing movement to focus on a third east or west county bridge before addressing the aging I-5 crossing.Cleveland, a fierce proponent of the defunct Columbia River Crossing project, said Senate Bill 5608 should still be considered progress.The measure calls for an inventory and cataloguing of all the previous work done on the Columbia River Crossing. It would create a legislative action committee, made up of key stakeholders and department of transportation employees in Oregon and Washington.last_img read more

Maran Unexpected Cagliari

Simeone praises Fiorentina teammate Muriel

first_imgAccording to the striker, the Colombian forward has had an instant impact in the Italian Lega Serie A team, and he’s settling in well.Colombian forward Luis Fernando Muriel joined Fiorentina in the Italian Lega Serie A on January 2nd as a loan from Spanish La Liga club Sevilla.And he immediately made an impact.The 27-year-old scored two goals against Sampdoria on Sunday in his first match with his new team.And for teammate Giovanni Simeone, this means it’s the right time to praise him for his work.“From his experience I can learn a lot, it’s the one that makes him make the difference in front of the opponent’s goal demonstrated already on Sunday,” Simeone told Calcio Mercato.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“It gives further substance to the entire offensive department.”“From when he arrived, it immediately made us feel the great desire to do well, to leave the mark it has,” he added.“It is an incentive for everyone. We have to be smart to take advantage of this strong point and at the same time careful to close the spaces in case of restarting the adversaries.”“We have overcome Torino, an opponent who is not easy to beat, and we cannot stop, I believe that with the right push, let’s not forget that we will play at home,” Simeone added about the team’s next opponent.“Florence on our side, and the desire to go beyond any difficulty, we will be able to play it, we will fight to say our dream, win, and dream of a title with the club. And for all this, I’m working on it (smile)”.“What do they tell me when I go to Madrid?” Griezmann is very strong, like Godin and all the others. Many of them have seen me grow, there is a good estimate,” he concluded.last_img read more

Shadow Minister of Finance in the PDM Hon Derek Taylor remains optimistic

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppIn light of recently increased taxes Shadow Minister of Finance in the PDM, Hon. Derek Taylor remains optimistic that the Turks and Caicos’ economy can be revived if taxes are rolled back and the government explores other areas of revenue. Speaking to Magnetic Media, Hon. Taylor suggested the government could consider alternatives like philatelic revenue, ship registration and even capitalize more on cruise tourists coming into Grand Turk. The shadow minister added that an alternative financing plan can be developed for the Caribbean Development Bank which will offer lower interest rates. The Shadow Minister however, a former Chief Minister of the TCI was sure to point out that such efforts have to be collaborative where other overseas territories are engaged in the process.

Anniversary of China Tariffs No Cause for Celebration for Soy Growers

first_imgAnniversaries often evoke fond memories and collective cheers, but for soybean growers, this past year has been far from positive and instead the most challenging in a generation: The July 6 one-year mark of 25% tariffs placed on U.S. beans exported to China has left the industry with more of a trade hangover than reason to toast.Davie Stephens, a grower from Clinton, Kentucky, and president of American Soybean Association said, “Before the trade war, U.S. soybean farmers saw prices well over $10 per bushel, but now that number has been in the 8-dollar range way too often. Dealing with weather, weeds, pests and normal markets is tough enough for farmers, but being caught in the middle of a trade war for an entire year is a whole different level. Prices are lower and anxiety is definitely higher for those of us trying to keep our farms going.”President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed last week at the G-20 summit to reconvene negotiations that stalemated in May, a positive glimmer in an otherwise dismal landscape for U.S. soy growers suffering the impacts of tariffs and hopeful that retaliatory tariffs waged by the two countries starting last July will end and enable their industry to recuperate.“Hearing that negotiations will resume, we are better off this week than last. But, continued talks between the U.S. and China won’t undo the damage done the past 12 months. The only action that will truly start to repair our industry is an agreement between both countries to rescind the tariffs.”The U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC) reports that shipments of U.S. beans to China were down 19.2 million metric tons, or 705.2 million bushels, in the first 10 months of the current marketing year compared to the 2017/18 marketing year. As the China market continues to erode, opportunities increase for other soy-producing countries to steal U.S. market share. That lost market opportunity along with a significant drop in the price of soybeans has led to an historic carry-over stock of unsold American beans: USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) reported stored soybeans up 47% for June year-over-year.By far the largest market traditionally for U.S. soybean exports, China continues to promise good-faith purchases of American beans, but the industry that methodically built a strong market in China over four decades wants to see free trade restored rather than filling the gap with government-to-government purchases while negotiations continue indefinitely.Stephens explained, “We understand that any movement of U.S. beans to China is better than no movement, but the long-term answer for the viability of our industry is not patchwork promises to buy our beans. It’s reopening the door to trade for American farmers by rescinding the tariffs.”last_img read more

As recall effort gets underway Unalaskas mayor denies illegal dock negotiations

first_imgA group of Unalaskans is trying to recall Mayor Frank Kelty, center. To force a recall election, they must collect 168 signatures by Dec. 22. That number represents 25 percent of votes cast in the last regular mayoral election. (Photo by Berett Wilber/KUCB)Unalaska’s mayor now is facing a recall effort following months of intense public criticism.Listen nowFrank Kelty has denied allegations that he interfered with the former city manager or forced his resignation.But the recall petition isn’t centered on recent clashes at City Hall.Instead, it accuses the mayor of backroom dealings regarding the city dock.The petition charges Kelty with one count of misconduct: “Attempting to sole-source land use agreements for the Unalaska Marine Center positions 5-7.”In other words, the mayor is accused of giving one company an unfair first crack at a preferential use agreement, rather than letting the city open a public bidding process as required by municipal code.“Totally false,” Kelty said. “Everyone knows that the city manager handles negotiations on things like that.”Recently, however, the trajectory of those negotiations has been unclear.Since the city reopened a longstanding debate on priority dock usage, the city manager has resigned and half the City Council has been voted out of office.The council also has revoked its own directive authorizing negotiations, after receiving legal advice from the city attorney, and the matter has not gone out to bid.Kelty has been a vocal supporter of renewing Matson’s lapsed contract, and he admits to meeting with the private shipping company. But he said those meetings are part of an ongoing working relationship, not evidence of an illegal deal.“Naturally, I would take a meeting with Matson, who is a major revenue producer for the city and provides jobs. (I) talk to them and hear their concerns,” Kelty said. “But I’ve been in no meetings when there were negotiations going on.”KUCB has filed a public records request for the mayor’s emails regarding dock agreements. But Kelty said the recall effort is really about something else.“I think it’s carryover from the Martinson issue,” Kelty said.Dave Martinson resigned as city manager in September, citing long-term tension with the council and mayor.The Unalaskans leading the recall push acknowledge that is a factor.“The public, in my opinion, has lost faith in the mayor in general,” Ryan Burke, the petition’s primary contact, said. “All of this stemming, obviously, from the departure of Dave Martinson. His relationship with the mayor crumbled his wanting to stay here.”Burke said he and nine co-sponsors are now circulating petitions around the island. They have until Dec. 22 to gather 168 signatures.“We’re getting there,” Burke said. “We’re all collecting these signatures to hopefully bring this to a vote very soon.”If they succeed, City Clerk Marjie Veeder will schedule a recall election no later than 75 days after signatures are verified. She said voters would be able to recall the mayor with a simple majority.last_img read more

NASA faked Moon landing TV spotlight spotted in image photographed during Apollo

first_imgYouTubeAs NASA is busy celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon landings, a section of conspiracy theorists has again started claiming that the United States space agency faked the Moon landing. In order to substantiate their views, they have now spotted a TV spotlight in footage taken from the Apollo 17 mission that was carried out in 1972.In the footage, NASA astronauts Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt were seen exploring the lunar surface, and at one point in time, they turned towards the camera. Shockingly, a reflection of a bright orb becomes visible in both their helmets. Even though NASA reveals that it is the sun’s reflection which appeared on the helmet, conspiracy theorists claim that it is actually the reflection of a TV spotlight.”Here is a screenshot from footage that NASA provided for us. Without me even adjusting anything, you can clearly see that The Sun is a spotlight. This is not the real Sun, this is a spotlight in a movie studio. You can clearly see it is a light supported in some type of metal housing around the spotlight. These two are not walking on the Moon, if you have a really keen eye you can see there is even a person standing right there. You can see his legs and a dark jacket, it’s almost like he’s standing with his hands in his pockets,” said an anonymous conspiracy theorist, Daily Star reports.A few months back, Graham McHardy, a deceased conspiracy theorist known by the YouTube user name ‘Streetcap1’ had shared some evidence that suggested that the United States has faked Moon landing. In an image captured from the lunar surface during the Apollo 17 mission, a visor worn by one of the astronauts reflected the image of a man standing on the surface of the Moon without wearing a space suit.Interestingly, the man spotted on the visor had not worn the safety backpack of the astronauts, and it made many people believe that NASA had faked the entire Moon mission from a Hollywood movie set. Even though the image shared by Streetcap1 became viral, NASA did not respond to any of these conspiracy theories.last_img read more

ATT CEO Expects DirecTV to Keep NFL Sunday Ticket Exclusively

first_img Related Redman Defends Jay-Z’s NFL Partnership: ‘I’m Sure He’s Going to Open More Doors’  “When you look at the NFL Network, there are some costs attached to that,” Stephenson said. He added that many of the games on NFL Network as well as its coverage of the NFL draft are available on other network, so “the NFL Network didn’t really make sense to carry” on U-verse and DirecTV Now — neither of which is permitted under the NFL pact to offer Sunday Ticket. The NFL Network remains on DirecTV’s satellite service.DirecTV’s current deal for Sunday Ticket extends through the 2019 NFL season. The talks on the football package come as AT&T in the first quarter of 2019 lost a whopping 544,000 net subscribers for DirecTV and U-verse TV, to stand at 22.4 million at quarter’s end (down 2.4% quarter-over-quarter). It also dropped a net 83,000 subs from DirecTV Now, which declined 5.2% in the period to 1.5 million.Last month, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a Bloomberg interview that the league wanted to expand the distribution of Sunday Ticket to online platforms in addition to DirecTV. “We’re looking to make sure that we continue to deliver this package, which is a premium package of great content,” he said. “We want it delivered on several different platforms.”AT&T also has offered a streaming-only version of NFL Sunday Ticket, but only to non-DirecTV customers who are college students or live somewhere in the U.S. where DirecTV satellite service is not available (like apartments and other multidwelling-unit buildings). NFL, Roc Nation to Stage ‘Inspire Change’ Concert With Meek Mill, Meghan Trainor Next Week AT&T believes it will hang on to DirecTV’s exclusive rights for the NFL Sunday Ticket, even as the league has said it’s considering ending the satellite operator’s exclusivity to extend the out-of-home games package to streaming platforms.“The exclusivity [of Sunday Ticket] should remain as we go forward on DirecTV,” AT&T CEO and chairman Randall Stephenson said on the company’s Q1 earnings call Wednesday. “We’re heavily invested in the NFL on DirecTV.”Sunday Ticket first launched 25 years ago on DirecTV, and it’s the only place to (legally) watch all of the NFL’s regular-season Sunday daytime match-ups. The price for DirecTV subscribers for the regular NFL Sunday Ticket package for the 2018 season was $293.94.AT&T’s Stephenson also addressed the issue of the telco dropping NFL Network from DirecTV Now and U-verse TV earlier this month, after carriage deals for the network on those services expired April 15.

Ohio Businesses Can Now Pay Taxes in Bitcoin

first_img Cops Raid Suspected Pot House, Find Cryptomining Operation InsteadBitcoin Bomb Threat Scam Disrupts Businesses Across US, Canada Ohio is the first state to accept bitcoin for tax bills.Local businesses can register on OhioCrypto.com to pay for 23 types of taxes—everything from cigarette sales to employee withholding—with bitcoin.The program, launched by state Treasurer Josh Mandel, will eventually expand to individual filers, according to The Wall Street Journal.AdChoices广告A seven-year veteran of the job, Mandel, 41, took an interest in bitcoin “several years ago,” and sees this new initiative as a convenience for citizens and an opportunity to plant Ohio’s flag in the digital coinage.“I do see [bitcoin] as a legitimate form of currency,” he told WSJ. And he hopes other governments will follow suit.Arizona, Georgia, and Illinois have considered adopting similar schemes, the paper said, but bills addressing the issue stalled in all three state legislatures.The first decentralized digital currency, bitcoin works without a central bank or single administrator; transactions occur directly between users, and are verified by network nodes and recorded in blockchain.In this case, it can be used to foot the bill for any number of state tariffs.“From mom-and-pop coffee shops to Fortune 100 companies, businesses now have the ability to pay their taxes with OhioCrypto.com,” the website said.The treasurer’s office, however, isn’t actually amassing a Scrooge McDuck-worthy pile of cryptocurrency. Technically, the new service funnels payments through Atlanta-based processor BitPay, which converts bitcoin to dollars.If you’re not already dealing in bitcoin, now might be a bad time to start.CoinDesk on Sunday announced a 36 percent plunge in the cryptocurrency’s price—the biggest weekly drop in more than five years.Learn more about bitcoin and blockchain from master explainer John Oliver.

US Justice Department accuses Apple of conspiring to raise Ebook sales

first_imgNo related posts. WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Justice Department accused Apple executives, including its late chief executive Steve Jobs, of leading a conspiracy that raised e-book prices in an attempt to hurt Amazon and other competitors, according to documents filed in federal court Tuesday.At one point, Eddy Cue, Apple’s lead e-books negotiator, counseled the chief executive of Random House to withhold e-books from Amazon unless it agreed to higher prices, the Justice Department said. Another publisher, Macmillan, would later employ this strategy, Justice said.In its own court filing, Apple vehemently denied allegations of price fixing, saying it brought fresh competition to a market dominated by Amazon. “The evidence proves that Apple acted independently, to further its own legitimate business goals,” the company said.The dueling documents with the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of New York detail for the first time aspects of the government’s case against Apple. The court is scheduled on June 3 to hear the price-fixing trial that has reverberated beyond the fast-growing digital books market.As consumers migrate from paper books to e-readers, publishing firms have struggled to maintain profits with discounted version of their works online. Meanwhile, Google, Apple and Barnes & Noble have fought to break into a lucrative market for e-readers and have angled for a cut of the proceeds of selling books through those devices.“This case has a huge impact on competition as everyday consumers are being hit in the pocketbook when they want to buy e-books,” said David Balto, a former policy director for the Federal Trade Commission. “This not only sets the standards for digital books but also on Internet conduct on retailing. It ensures the Internet prospers and that consumers benefit.”Apple is the only holdout of the Justice’s lawsuit, originally brought in April 2012 against Apple and five of the country’s major publishing houses: Macmillan, Penguin, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster and Hachette Book. The publishers have since settled.In its pretrial arguments, Justice said publishers Hachette and HarperCollins came up with an “agency model” in which publishers rather than retailers would set the prices consumers would pay for e-books.They had complained that Amazon was setting prices for e-books too low — often at around $9.99 — to attract more buyers of the company’s Kindle e-readers. Through the agency model, publishers allegedly plotted to raise prices to around $12.99 to $14.99.But they needed a willing technology partner.In December 2009, they met with Apple to adopt their plan. At that point, according to Justice, Apple ran with the idea.Cue played the key role, Justice documents contend. He summarized meetings with publishers for Apple’s late CEO, telling Jobs that publishers, “saw … the plus” of the agency model and that it “solves [the] Amazon issue,” Justice quoted him as saying.The company also quoted Jobs as telling biographer Walter Isaacson that Apple had “told the publishers, ‘We’ll go the agency model, where you set the price, and we get our 30 percent, and yes, the customers pays a little more, but that’s what you want anyway.’ “Those statements, Justice said, demonstrated an illegal scheme that broke antitrust laws and harmed consumers.“Apple knew that the plan it was proposing involved a ‘dramatic business change’ for publisher defendants,” Justice wrote in its arguments. “Accordingly, Apple kept each publisher defendant aware that it was orchestrating and coordinating a common approach for all of them.”But Apple argued in its filing that the negotiations between publishers and its technology partners were much more complicated than presented by Justice. The publishers had also talked to firms such as Barnes & Noble about the agency model idea.Apple said Amazon also considered the agency model and spoke in detail to publishers who at one point offered an exclusive arrangement that would cut out Apple.“Amazon knew that the e-book market was on the cusp of some dramatic changes. Apple’s device promised to transform the digital reading experience,” Apple’s documents stated.“We helped transform the eBook market with the introduction of the iBookstore in 2010 bringing consumers an expanded selection of eBooks and delivering innovative new features,” Apple spokesman Tom Nuemayr wrote in an email.“The market has been thriving and innovating since Apple’s entry, and we look forward to going to trial to defend ourselves and move forward,” he said.© 2013, The Washington Post Facebook Commentslast_img read more
