To deal with the inevitable botched installs before you start angry-tweeting, Microsoft’s added an upcoming capability to Windows 10 that will make it automatically uninstall any update that’s preceded a failed startup. At the moment, it’s just entering Windows’ Insider Preview beta cycle.It will also delay reinstalling the updates for 30 days to give Microsoft time to diagnose the issues before trying again. The relevant updates include drivers, hotfixes, changes to system files, service packs and new features. Spotted by site Windows Latest, Microsoft on Monday issued a brief support note to address this new behavior in case you experience it. Why were recently installed updates removed? Windows automatically installs updates to keep your device secure and running at peak efficiency. Occasionally, these updates can fail due to incompatibility or issues in new software. Your device has recently recovered from a startup failure if you have received this notification: “We removed some recently installed updates to recover your device from a startup failure.” If Windows detects this, it will try to resolve the failure by uninstalling recently installed updates. This is only done when all other automatic recovery attempts have been unsuccessful. To ensure that your device can start up and continue running as expected, Windows will also prevent problematic updates from installing automatically for the next 30 days. This will give Microsoft and our partners the opportunity to investigate the failure and fix any issues. After 30 days, Windows will again try to install the updates. Update March 14: changed to reflect that the update isn’t available yet and added link to Windows Latest.

There are also services like computer access and job search help along with initiatives geared toward homeless patrons.The Central Library will have more time to offer those services now that they’re bringing back Sunday hours. They’ll be open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.Assistant Director of Customer Experience Elizabeth Sargent said for the homeless in particular, the library is viewed as a safe place where they can meet with social service providers.“Many times customers want the support, need the help, but they’re not always comfortable going into that particular social service provider’s space,” explained Sargent.And with the searing summer heat, Sargent said the library can provide welcome relief.“About three weeks ago we were asked to open this library as a cooling center,” added Sargent. “And we saw over a 100 people in here with very little advertisement, simply because they had to get out of the heat. They had nowhere else to go.”The library can also serve as a lifeline for people of moderate means who need to get online. Deputy Assistant Director of Customer Experience Laurie Covington said their computers and hotspots get a lot of use.“Our libraries themselves are one of the biggest providers of wi-fi in the City of Houston just because all of our locations have wi-fi,” said Covington. “And now we’re expanding that so you can actually have wi-fi in your pocket, take it home with you, check it out for three weeks.”Covington and Sargent said Sundays are usually pretty busy at the Central Library. Since it’s the only Houston public library that’s open on Sunday, students use those hours to get homework help and it also gives researchers more time to work on projects. – / 6 00:00 /00:52 X Share
Africare, the oldest and largest African-American led non-profit committed to advancing development in Africa, hosted more than 500 global leaders including South African Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool, Civil Rights Activist Andrew Young and President Emertia of Bennett College for Women Julianne Malveaux, on April 5 at its annual Bishop John T. Walker Memorial Dinner and fundraiser at the Hilton Washington Hotel in the District. The event honored Africare’s pioneering Co-Founders C. Payne Lucas and Dr. Joseph C. Kennedy with Lifetime Achievement Awards for the contributions they have each made to Africare over more than four decades. Africare also paid tribute to its Honorary Chairman, the late Nelson Mandela, through a special video and musical presentation by trumpeter Thaddeus Wilson of the band DC Fusion. Actress Daphne Maxwell Reid, best known for her role as Aunt Viv on the hit-series “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” served as the Mistress of Ceremonies. “C. Payne and Dr. Kennedy focused on educating Americans about the challenges Africans face and the tremendous opportunities we have to help,” said Darius Mans, president, Africare. “Their tireless efforts to educate Americans led community, religious and fraternal organizations, as well as government and business entities, to discover Africare and contribute directly to Africa’s regeneration.” Africare was founded in 1970 in response to the devastation wrought in the Sahel by one of the worst droughts the Niger Delta had ever faced. In 1971, as founding board members, Mr. Lucas and Dr. Kennedy reincorporated Africare in the District of Columbia. Under their visionary leadership, Africare matured from working in one region of Niger with a budget of roughly $39,000, to engaging in hundreds of projects spanning 36 African countries over the past 44 years. Today, Africare’s portfolio is valued at more than $200 million, spanning 17 countries. “As Africare continues to grow and serve larger numbers of Africans in need, we always remember our inspirational and dedicated founders, their humble beginnings and their vision that takes us to communities that exist where the road ends,” Mans said. The Africare Bishop John T. Walker Memorial Dinner is held each year in memory of Bishop John T. Walker, the first African-American Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, DC and Africare’s longtime Board Chair. Bishop Walker, who passed away 25 years ago this year, distinguished himself as an exemplar of peace, justice and interracial harmony. The dinner plays an important role in enabling Africare to both broaden awareness about its work in Africa and to raise critically needed funds to deliver lifesaving services. This year’s dinner was made possible through the generosity of ExxonMobil, Chevron, The African Development Bank and The Coca-Cola Company, as well as many others from the business community.

The Khadi movement promoted an ideology, an idea that Indians could be self-reliant on cotton and be free from the high priced goods and clothes which the British were selling to them. The British would buy cotton from India at cheap prices and export them to Britain where they were woven to make clothes. These clothes were then brought back to India to be sold at hefty prices. The khadi movement aimed at boycotting foreign goods including cotton and promoting Indian goods, thereby improving India’s economy. Mahatma Gandhi began promoting the spinning of khadi for rural self-employment and self-reliance (instead of using cloth manufactured industrially in Britain) in 1920s India thus making khadi an integral part and icon of the Swadeshi movement. The freedom struggle revolved around the use of khadi fabrics and the dumping of foreign-made clothes. When some people complained about the costliness of khadi to Mahatma Gandhi, he started wearing only dhoti.
