Yes, the Barfly Garmin was just updated in January with the 1.1, but based on customer input and the spirit of continuous improvement Tate Labs is set to release the Barfly 2.0 at the Sea Otter Classic. Still made in the US, the patent-pending Barfly 2.0 gets some cool updates as well as compatibility upgrades that keep it ahead of the aftermarket computer mount game.Check out the Di2 and EPS compatibility and more after the break. Nearly everything has been redesigned with the 2.0, including the mounting position. Not only are there two mounting positions now that are optimized for 2 computer sizes (200/500 and 510/800/810) but the computer head now sits level with the stem instead of above it. Garmins can be installed in either position without tools giving you a tactile click once installed, and the mount material will not damage the computer’s mounting wings. The main bracket arm also appears to be relieved for decreased weight compared to the original.The other big change is the addition of Di2 and EPS junction box compatibility on the bottom of the Barfly. From the pictures it looks like it is compatible with the junction boxes from the Dura Ace 9070 group, but we’ll confirm when we see it at Sea Otter. Not pictured, but mentioned is the fact that there will apparently be a light offered that mounts under the Barfly as well, presumably if you’re not running Di2. The Barfly Garmin 2.0 will run 24.95 and will be available in May. There should be some more stuff from Tate Labs at Sea Otter, so stay tuned.
Nova Scotia hopes to become a world leader in tidal technology, writes The Global and Mail.Even though Nova Scotia has one of the most powerful tidal currents in the world, tidal development is moving at a very slow pace.In order to speed up the process Ottawa, Nova Scotia, Encana Corp. and several tidal technology companies formed the Fundy Ocean Research Centre for Energy (FORCE), which sits near a huge inlet of the Bay of Fundy.FORCE’s main plan is to become a key centre of tidal power research.In terms of tidal energy, FORCE communications manager Matt Lumley said: “We are sitting on the top of Everest.”Three out of four berths are rented, but neither of the power developers is deploying any tidal generators.The center expects to see deployment of the tidal turbines in the Bay of Fundy by 2015.Richard Karsten, a mathematics professor at Acadia University in Wolfville, N.S. calculated that the Bay of Fundy could host hundreds of tidal turbines which could generate around 2.5GW of electricity, enough to power a million homes.[mappress]Offshore WIND staff, August 27, 2013; Image: fundyforce

A suicide at age 8? Very rare, but not inconceivable Author: Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) The death was startling even to the coroner: a boy only 8 years old apparently killing himself in his Cincinnati bedroom.Now Gabriel Taye’s January death is being re-examined, after it emerged that he was bullied and knocked unconscious at school two days before he died.Hamilton County Coroner Lakshmi Sammarco’s office has ruled Gabriel’s death a suicide, but she said last week that she was reopening the investigation to re-examine the boy’s injuries and whether there were contributing factors to his death.“It was very hard for me to believe that an 8-year-old would even know what it means to commit suicide,” Sammarco said.Suicides are rare among children so young, but not unheard of. Statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show an average of 14 suicides per year nationwide among children 10 or younger since 1999. That compares to over 1,400 per year among 11- to 18-year-olds.At 8, children generally are just coming to understand death, says Dr. Louis Kraus, chief of child psychiatry at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. Conceiving of ending their own lives can be even more remote.“It’s possible, but at this young age, it’s very uncommon,” Kraus said. Even if a child has an idea of suicide, “many kids this young really don’t conceptualize the permanency of what they’re doing and what could happen.”Experts stress that at any age, suicide is a complex decision that often reflects a combination of life events and psychiatric problems, whether diagnosed or not.Warning signs can be harder to read in young children than older people, said Dr. Alec Miller, chief of child and adolescent psychology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. But while kids might not have the vocabulary to discuss depression, it still might show up, perhaps as a change in behavior or complaints about aches or fatigue with no physical explanation, Kraus notes.Gabriel had no history of mental health issues, said Carla Leader, a lawyer for his mother, Cornelia Reynolds. People who knew him describe him as a happy-go-lucky kid – “a very loving little boy who always had a smile on his face and would bring a smile to your face,” said Carolyn Emery, whose children went to school with him.Gabriel was at school Jan. 24 when, as seen on a choppy surveillance video the Cincinnati Public Schools system released Friday, he apparently tried to shake hands with a boy who had hit another child. Attorneys for Gabriel’s mother said the boy pushed Gabriel into a wall, knocking him unconscious.An assistant principal arrived about 4 ½ minutes later to look at him. The school system said that it was “concerned about the length of time that (the boy) lay motionless and the lack of adult supervision at the scene” but that administrators followed protocol by having the nurse evaluate him. School officials said the boy told staff he had fainted and never said he had been bullied or assaulted.They said school administrators asked Reynolds to get Gabriel and take him to a hospital. But her attorneys say she decided on her own to pick him up and take him to the hospital after her sister, who was baby-sitting while Reynolds was at work, called to say that Gabriel had vomited and was complaining of stomach pains. Doctors concluded he likely had a stomach virus and sent him home.Two days later, Gabriel hanged himself in his bedroom with a necktie, authorities said.According to her attorneys, Reynolds didn’t learn of the schoolhouse confrontation until her attorneys got a copy of a police investigative file that described the surveillance video.

Highlight:Hardik Pandya in love with a Serbian actressThe love that informed the world in the new yearIndian cricket team’s all-rounder has a baby boyTeam India’s super all – rounder Hardik Pandya’s straight six! VR Blessed With They Baby Boy !!Yes, Hardik Pandya and Serbian actress and girlfriend Natasha Stankovic gave birth to a baby boy. Hardik Pandya broke the news to the world through social media. He was engaged to be married to Natasha on New Year’s Day but did not say when the wedding would take place. He only hinted that he was preparing to become a father in May. Meanwhile, fans who saw the couple in their wedding attire on social media asked if they were married.Also Read: Sajana Sajeevan: Wayanad changed the course of the game with a single ballFans did not hide their frustration that the all-rounder did not provide a confirmation. Among them, Hardik Pandya has come with the good news that he is a father.Twenty-six-year-old Hardik last played for India in September. He underwent surgery in October. He has been suffering from back pain since the 2018 Asia Cup.In May, D Patil returned to cricket to play in the T20 tournament. Two centuries and a five-wicket haul. With this, he was named in the squad for the ODI series against South Africa. Hardik’s return to international cricket was delayed after the series was abandoned due to Corona. If the IPL is held in the UAE in September, fans will be able to see the tremendous performance after Hardik Pandya’s father.
The 27-year-old said: “I’m not counting the Chesterfield one as I was out for five months and they were mid-table when I got injured.“But ensuring that doesn’t happen here is definitely my big aim.“I don’t want to get that kind of reputation, but if you get relegated three times in a row then you’ve definitely got it.“It’s a big driving force for me personally as it’s something I’m very keen to avoid. Paul McGinn has said the fear of attaining a dubious reputation for relegations has given him extra motivation to keep St Mirren up.The right-back has suffered back-to-back relegations, first with Chesterfield to League Two in 2016 and more recently when Partick Thistle dropped into the Championship.Saints currently lie 11th in the Premiership after six games after losing to Hamilton last time out.Admitting he’s in danger of being labelled a jinx, McGinn is determined to prove he’s not cursed. “Last year, right at the end of the season with Thistle was probably the worst point of my career.“When I signed for them they had played seven games and only had one point, so at least we’re in better shape than that this time round.“But it was such a sore one.”The Buddies have picked up just four points so far, with Neil Lennon’s in-form Hibs side set to visit Paisley this weekend.McGinn added: “We obviously need to pick ourselves up, but nobody’s panicking.“This is one of the things you need to expect when you get promoted. You’re not going to win every game and you going to have ups and downs – with probably more downs.“If we’re still in the league at the end of the season then that will be a success and we can build on it from there. “There’s absolutely no point feeling sorry for yourselves.”
