richard macmanus Although we think SimpleGeo has a lot of potential, we should note that geolocation is a very crowded field. As Marshall Kirkpatrick explained last month, SimpleGeo is competing in some way with entrenched enterprise geodata megaliths like Esri; slow-baked open source standards-based technologies such as OpenGeo; hip startups like Locationlabs, Factual and Foursquare; BigCos like Facebook and Google; and free open-source geodata backed by big mapping companies. As a sign of things to come, earlier this month SimpleGeo launched into public beta two free application programming interfaces (APIs) that offer a large amount of information about 13 million places in the United States. This information will be available for free, forever, to anyone building an application that needs local context.Let us know in the comments if you agree with our choice for Most Promising company for 2011, or whether you think another company should’ve been selected.

Foursquare, Facebook, Google and others have developed successful products using location data. The idea behind SimpleGeo is to be a platform for others to utilize location data.Back in February, before SimpleGeo had launched, the company claimed to be indexing more than 1 million location-based objects every hour.

In this post we select a company that we think has the potential to be Best LittleCo of 2011. Next year we’re expecting a lot from data-centric companies and one in particular. This company provides a platform for developers to create location-aware applications: SimpleGeo.This is the 7th year that we’ve chosen a Most Promising company. Looking back at our results, we’ve hit the mark sometimes: for example, Feedburner in 2004 and Digg in 2005. Other times our picks have been accurate on the trends, but flew wide of the dartboard when it came to picking the successful companies. We chose sync app Sharpcast (now SugarSync) in 2006, but DropBox is better known now. We chose Brightkite in 2008, which ultimately lost out to Foursquare in the battle of the check-in apps. However, we think we have a winner here in SimpleGeo! SimpleGeo comes out of Boulder, Colorado – one of the most innovative startup scenes in the U.S. currently.As ReadWriteWeb’s Chris Cameron explained in May, SimpleGeo evolved out of an earlier company: CrashCorp, created by SocialThing founder Matt Galligan and former Digg Chief Architect Joe Stump. The original plan of CrashCorp was to create mobile games using augmented reality, but the young company soon learned that the hardest part was developing the back-end geolocation infrastructure that would support their applications. Thus was born SimpleGeo. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market
A portion of a canal, which was to be inaugurated on Wednesday by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, in Bhagalpur district of Bihar collapsed on Tuesday owing to a breach and water entered into the residential areas of the National Thermal Power Corporation’s (NTPC) station at Kahalgaon and adjoining areas such as Siddharth Nagar and Kutahri Kali Sthan, causing hardship to people.Water resource department engineers and officials were making efforts to contain the situation.Local residents said the canal collapsed due to poor quality of construction.The Chief Minister cancelled his programme due to “technical reasons.”“Due to the breach in the canal, water entered some parts of the NTPC”, Vishwanath Chandan, PRO of NTPC, told local journalists.The 11-km long Bateshwarsthan Ganga Pump Nahar Priyojna (Bateshwarstahn Ganga Canal Project) took 40 years for completion at a cost of ₹828 crore. “The breach in canal happened due to release of water in full capacity… the incident has not caused any damage to the newly-constructed part of the project”, said State Water Resources Minister Rajiv Ranjan Singh alias Lalan Singh.The breach, officials said, occurred around 5:30 p.m., when parts of the elevated canal built over a road collapsed when water was “pumped into the canal on a trial basis prior to the inaugural function.”The Bateshwarsthan Ganga Pump Nahar Pariyojna is a “lift irrigation project” in which water from the Ganga is to be lifted with the help of pumps and released into the canal to irrigate agricultural areas of Kahalgaon in Bhagalpur and adjoining district of Godda in Jharkhand.Started in 1977 with an initial investment of ₹13.88 crore, the project was to irrigate 23,000 hectares However, the project was expanded and the estimated cost shot up to ₹828 crore.

“He trained us to believe that he was a saint that could help us, and that without him we could not get better.”Nassar addressed the court Monday in a brief statement lasting less than a minute, offering an apology similar to the one he gave at the January sentencing hearing.“The words expressed by everyone that has spoken, including the parents, have impacted me to my innermost core,” Nassar said.“It’s impossible to convey the depth and breadth of how sorry I am to each and every one involved.”‘His lies worked’The key question for many victims has been who knew of Nassar’s abuse and who could have stopped him earlier.“We have taken care of one perpetrator, we have not taken care of the systems that allowed him to flourish for 20 years,” Rachael Denhollander, the first to publicly accuse Nassar, told a throng of news media at the courthouse following the sentencing.With a stellar reputation as the doctor to Olympic champions, Nassar evaded scrutiny several times since the late 1990s by insisting his abuse was in fact cutting-edge treatment that was misunderstood by some patients.“His lies worked,” lead prosecutor Angela Povilaitis said in her closing statement. “Each time he got away, he was empowered to continue and perfect his abuse and his techniques even more.”Even after Nassar came under serious scrutiny, his abuse was not immediately stopped.USA Gymnastics reported Nassar to the FBI in July 2015, but he continued to see patients at MSU until a newspaper exposed him in September 2016.

Former Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III won the Heisman Trophy in 2011 and is one of the most accomplished players in BU history. He’s had some rough sledding in the NFL the past two seasons, but this morning he returned to where he played his best football. Griffin is back at Baylor for the Bears’ Pro Day today, and he got a workout in beforehand with one of his former wide receivers, Lanear Sampson.We wonder if Griffin will throw at all during the Pro Day as an extra arm for receivers running routes. Even if he does, he won’t be the most-watched QB at the event. That title goes to current BU signal caller Bryce Petty, who is trying to raise his draft stock.
“British Columbia is fortunate to have an abundance of wildlife, including both black bears and grizzly bears,” says Daniell. “But, as urban development expands into wild animal habitats, bear encounters have become a normal part of life, with tragic consequences for the bears.” In the fall, as bears prepare for hibernation they need to build up fat to survive the winter. They seek out easily accessed foods, including compost, garbage and fruit trees. “Unfortunately, these food sources bring bears and people closer together,” says Daniell. “Over time, bears may lose their natural fear of people and start to associate people with food. Sadly, hundreds of ‘problem’ bears end up being killed by conservation officers in B.C. every year.”The BC SPCA is reminding British Columbians to do their part in keeping B.C. bears safe by being aware of the following attractants;Ripe or fallen fruitUnsecured garbage and compost/food scrapsOutdoor pet food storageBird feedersOutdoor fridges and freezersBeehivesChicken coops“We can all take easy steps to protect bears from becoming victims,” says Daniell. “And what better way to reward yourself for making the effort than with a glass of The Bear wine?”For more information on where to buy The Bear wine, visit northernlightswinery.ca. PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – The BC SPCA has partnered with Northern Lights Estate Winery and has launched ‘The Bear’, a new Pinot Gris-style wine that is raising awareness and funds to help BC bears.Using surplus apples sourced from local properties to make the wine and the goal to deter bears from entering developed areas in search of leftover or fallen fruit. ‘The Bear’ will help protect local bears as well $2 from the sale of each bottle will be given to the BC SPCA to help animals in need across B.C.In a statement by Craig Daniell, Chief Executive Officer of the BC SPCA says the initiative is a creative example of how individuals and businesses can make a difference for B.C. wildlife.
