Congratulation "Al Gore" Nobel for peace : Special work on Global Warming

24hoursnews( 24 hours news)We congratulate "Al Gore"

Gore's Nobel winnings go to Palo Alto global warming alliance.A year-old Palo Alto nonprofit will receive the $750,000 former Vice President Al Gore received along with his Nobel Prize.

The Alliance for Climate Protection, which was once lauded by Gore as the planet's "PR agent," is a think tank focused on letting people know about the effects of global warming and helping them become activists against it.

The alliance also works alongside other environmental groups, such as the Sierra Club, for climate change education.

In concert with Gore's Current TV and actors that included George Clooney and Orlando Bloom, the alliance created a contest letting people submit videos on environmental action.

Gore also gave the alliance money from his documentary "An Inconvenient Truth

Last week the Nobel Foundation awarded Al Gore and the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) the Nobel Peace Prize. Former U. S. Vice President Al Gore was honored for his work on climate change and his Oscar winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth. The IPCC, a joint project of the United Nations Environment Program and the World Meteorological Organization, was honored for its efforts over the past two decades to educate the world about climate change. Earlier this year, the IPCC issued its strongest statement to date, finding the evidence of climate change "unequivocal" and concluding with 90% certainty that humans are the cause.

In awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to leaders in the battle against climate change, the Norwegian Nobel Committee emphasizes that the problem's effects go beyond climate, and extend to individual security and opportunity. In the award press release they state:

"Indications of changes in the earth's future climate must be treated with the utmost seriousness, and with the precautionary principle uppermost in our minds. Extensive climate changes may alter and threaten the living conditions of much of mankind. They may induce large-scale migration and lead to greater competition for the earth's resources. Such changes will place particularly heavy burdens on the world's most vulnerable countries. There may be increased danger of violent conflicts and wars, within and between states...the Norwegian Nobel Committee is seeking to contribute to a sharper focus on the processes and decisions that appear to be necessary to protect the world's future climate, and thereby to reduce the threat to the security of mankind. Action is necessary now, before climate change moves beyond man's control."

Al Gore has argued for rising to meet the challenge of climate change from a moral perspective: "The climate crisis offers us the chance to experience what few generations in history have had the privilege of experiencing: a generational mission; a compelling moral purpose; a shared cause; and the thrill of being forced by circumstances to put aside the pettiness and conflict of politics and to embrace a genuine moral and spiritual challenge."

A 13-year-old hacker breaks the iPod Touch out of jail

No doubt Hackers are genious.

A 13-year-old hacker has revealed a new hack code called iJailBreak, which allows iPod Touch owners to traverse Apple's 1.1.1 update and add third-party applications to iconic touchscreen device.

Online technology experts CNET are today reporting that a new piece of pesky hacker-provided development code has appeared across the Internet that is unlikely to cause Apple Inc. to spontaneously perform cartwheels of joy.

More pointedly, a 13-year-old member of the hacker community (known only as AriX) has apparently provided CNET with a press release touting the use of iJailBreak in conjunction with the new iPod Touch media device. AriX claims that the successful melding of the two will enable the diminutive touch-screen device to run third-party applications "without having to take a computer science class."

While cnet was unable to immediately clarify whether iJailBreak does indeed allow iPod Touch devices to run third-party apps, there are already several Apple-related product forums confirming the code's usefulness. However, it should be noted that it definitely will not function alongside the iPhone handset, and will only work with those iPod Touch units equipped with Intel-based Macs.

The arrival of iJailBreak will likely be welcomed with open arms by those iPod Touch users disgruntled by the recent release of Apple's 1.1.1 software patch, which disabled any prior third-party app installers. Plus, iJailBreak is also a much more user-friendly solution than the initial jailbreak code that appeared during the course of last week but required considerable technological know-how to implement.

This latest version of iJailBreak is reportedly better suited to those wanting to open their iPod Touch devices to third-party applications without having to indulge in any excessive tech fiddling, with the release stating that: "the only user interaction required for iJailBreak to work is to restart the iPod Touch using the button on the top of the iPod. The application does the rest."

AriX warns that installing iJailBreak could potentially brick the user's unit, but that, like any other iPod, returning the device to its default factory settings is easy.
