After you share a document through the newly released iWork ’08 desktop software, your friends and co-workers can comment and leave notes on your Keynote, Pages, or Numbers documents, though the documents themselves can’t be edited online. Apple is releasing this as a free beta today, and Phil Schiller announced this as “the beginning of a great new service,” which leads us to believe that Apple is indeed working on a more advanced online version of iWork.According to Schiller, iWork.com will work on all the major browsers, including Safari, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. Documents are not only viewable online, but can also be downloaded.Apple also announced a Keynote Remote iPhone app, that will be available in the App Store for $0.99, as well as major updates to its iWork and iLife suites.

Coddled puppies make poor guide dogs, as this adorable video shows

first_img By Giorgia GuglielmiAug. 7, 2017 , 3:00 PM Coddled puppies make poor guide dogs, as this adorable video shows If a smooth sea never made a skillful sailor, so an overprotective mother doesn’t make a successful guide dog. That’s the conclusion of the first study to analyze how mother-puppy interaction influences guide dog training program success. Researchers followed from birth to adulthood 98 puppies enrolled in a New Jersey breeding and training program for guide dogs for the blind, where only about 70% of the dogs graduate as guides. Dogs whose mothers spent the most time licking and grooming them as puppies were almost three times less likely to succeed in the training program, the scientists report today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. When the researchers measured the dogs’ ability to stay focused and follow commands or solve complex problems such as retrieving hidden food and navigating a maze, dogs that had been highly cared for as puppies were more anxious. What’s more, puppies raised by mothers that spent more time nursing while lying on their belly were four times less likely to succeed in the program, whereas those raised by mothers that mostly nursed while sitting were four times more likely to succeed. This is because nursing while sitting requires more effort for puppies to reach and stay attached to the nipples, and dogs that didn’t have to overcome such small challenges as puppies might be easily flummoxed by obstacles as adults, the scientists say.  Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)last_img read more

Anirban Lahiri wins second European Tour title in playoff

first_imgLocal favourite Anirban Lahiri won a playoff against compatriot SSP Chawrasia to claim his second European Tour title in two weeks at the Indian Open on Sunday.Beginning a dramatic day seven shots behind overnight leader Chawrasia, Lahiri carded two-under 69 and benefited from his opponent’s meltdown to join him at seven under par and force the playoff.Chawrasia slumped to a 76 and watched helplessly as Lahiri denied him his third European Tour title by rolling in a 15-foot birdie to clinch the playoff. “It’s incredible – starting today I didn’t really think I had a chance,” Lahiri, who was four-over after his first 10 holes in the tournament, told reporters.”It was one of the toughest days ever that I’ve played golf at Delhi Golf Club and I’m really happy to have accomplished this: it’s a childhood dream,” said Lahiri who won his maiden European Tour title in Malaysia a fortnight ago.”There were about eight of us who could have pulled through so I feel really lucky and fortunate, and really happy,” added the 27-year-old, who could move to just outside the top 30 in the world rankings and looks certain to earn a US Masters invitation in April. Chawrasia began the day with a two-shot lead over holder Siddikur Rahman of Bangladesh who won the tournament two years ago before it was co-sanctioned by the European Tour.Sweden’s Joakim Lagergren, Thailand’s Prayad Marksaeng, Sri Lanka’s Mithun Perera and Australian Marcus Fraser finished on six under. Chawrasia dropped three shots in his opening four holes to hand the lead to Rahman but the Bangladeshi also wilted under pressure, returning 76 to finish five-under overall.advertisementLahiri climbed to second place in The Race to Dubai.”It’s hard to come to terms with,” he said.”Just six months back I was in Spain at Qualifying School and really relieved having stared at not having my card with five holes to go, so it feels like Ive skipped a couple of steps to get to where I am right now.”It’s obviously a fantastic feeling and hopefully I can keep playing well through the year.”last_img read more
